All right everybody. So let's get into this right now. I think I'm going to kick things off here with Michelle beisner-buck who talked to me about her feature that she did with Raiders fans. The Raider Nation found three different groups of fans that have relentlessly pursued this team. So let's talk to her now about that feature that she put together with some of the families that you followed. It's really amazing their Journeys as Raider fans and some of them have bought these Legacy bricks that are going up and around the stadium that one of them that most interested me that I saw in a little snippet of your feature was Ed and Tina Acevedo. They're from Corona, California, but they got married in Las Vegas talk to me about what it was like wage. Speaking with them and their unique wedding that they had in Las Vegas. All right. Well, first of all Tina and Ed are they were so much fun to interview we luckily were able to do all of these interviews be so I at least got to see their faces and I just they are just so infectious their personalities are just right and their love for each other off her nation is is like nothing maybe I've ever seen and I am a super fan of T myself and they are this is legit. So they met they were both managers at Walmart. They never thought they started dating obviously for Ed, you know, Tina had to be a Raider fan. There was no way that he was going to spend the rest of his life with somebody that was in a Raiders fan, but she actually didn't grow up a football fan. So she comes from a she had a little bit different perspective, right? He introduced her to Raider Nation. They went to a game. They sent the black hole. They tailgated in Oakland inoko. And she said it was the birth time of their life. And from that moment on she was a die-hard Raider fan. So they were driving out to Las Vegas to make the long story even longer for you. They were driving out to Las Vegas and they both been married before and I believe it was Ed that actually came up with this idea and asked Tina if she would be willing to get married in Las Vegas. To which she said? Yes, and then he's ruin this little cherry on top of what if we did it in Raiders jerseys. So what she said absolutely so they went and they got married need to get the rest of it, but they did it in their Raiders jersey. So, you know, the Raiders are are not only a part of how they started dating and how they courted one another and the the funds that they kind of formed going the game, but man I mean, they took it to the extreme they got married and Raiders jerseys. I don't know that as much as I love my husband. I don't know that I would have done that for him to her home. Well, like we said you are doing this feature package here on a lot of the Raider Nation fans and how their travels have been to come to watch the team how many of them that you interviewed our job at least saying, yes, we will still travel to Las Vegas to watch our Raiders play every single one of them. I mean with with no question. I mean they Raiders fans Will Rogers Travel and I think that you know traditionally and historically Raider nation has a bit of a reputation for being a bit rambunctious little wild it can at times even be dangerous. But you know, I think there is that's the misconception or the perception of crazy fans and every single one of these lovely people that I talked to were gracious and and said that there is nothing but camaraderie and an awful feeling of unity and family and it really is special. It's like it's like, you know, I don't know I think that I think there are certain fan base wage is in the NFL and across Sports in general that really really Define what it means to be a die-hard fan and and the Raiders fans really epitomize all of that song. So, I mean there was not a hesitation. I didn't finish the question when I interviewed these people and ask them if they would be going to Raiders tables. The last absolutely they said we'll be there somehow someway will tailgate it's Vegas were in it doesn't matter how long the drive is we're going to they're they're all in every one that I talked to said that they were going to miss tailgating at Oak go and being there because it was a unique venue. It was a unique Stadium. It was like a unique and very special kind of sacred place for them. But but far off the the response to that was everyone is really excited. And you know again wherever they go the Raider fans will travel they will be there. They they have unwavering loyalty to the silver and black great stuff. And again, I'm on the line here with Michelle beisner-buck and you had some big news for your own FAQ. During the Bengals Browns halftime your husband Joe was named to the 2020 Pete Rozelle radio television Award winner, which means Pro Football Hall of Fame just as his father Jack before him did and that makes them the first-ever father-and-son duo to achieve that what was that announcement? Like for your family? Oh girl. Oh God. That was and I mean, I think we're still floating. I don't think we've actually touched touched the ground yet. We're still on cloud nine at this moment. But you know, Joe had no idea that this was happening. I didn't get tipped off until probably five minutes prior when his boss at fox called me which you know, he doesn't call me often. So when I saw his number come up, I was a bit panicked wondering why it was following calling me mid game, but he said listen you gotta Fox does a really good job of keeping secrets. You have to watch it half dead. Joe it's going to be announced that Joe's going to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and I and I just started sobbing and I shake swipe you said yes, it's true. And I was like, oh my God, it said long wait, I got to go like I love you for all of this. But how dare you like call me with five minutes left to the he'll have to call so many people and tell them to watch hockey without telling them what's going on and off hang up the phone. I called all my family. I called Joe sister and his mother and everyone's crying and I'm telling everyone to spread the word without ruining the surprise and it was just awful. I mean and still lives. It's such a special just feeling I there is no one now, of course. Listen, I'm a bit biased obviously is my husband, but there is no one that works harder and juggles more and does his job with such kind of ease and Brilliance and just Pig Vacation. I mean he is so deserving of this and I've never been more proud and it is so special for his mother to be able to know that her late husband. She can and her son Joe are there together in the Pro Football Hall of Fame the first father-son Duo to do it. It is such an honor and we are we're all going to be there or celebrating this in Canton. Hopefully, you know that that all goes as planned. But yeah, I mean, I just I have no words. I have a lot of Tears though a lot of happy tears, but sometimes you run out of words to say, but I just I've never been more happy for another human in my entire life. All right. That was Michelle beisner-buck of ESPN. And she said that you can find the feature that she put together for Monday Night Football on raidernation at 6, So make sure to look that up and right now I'm going to take a quick break.

Welcome back to the takeaways Edition at the Vegas Nation Podcast. No, I want to get into this interview with Darren Waller because he's put together this foundation and they're going to have a benefit Gala and that's not going to happen on Monday September 28th starting at 6:30 p.m. Here in Las Vegas. And the foundation is to help at-risk Youth and that's something that is near and dear to Darren Wang heart as many of you know, he played with the Ravens and then was released and had had many substance abuse problems. He had a near-death experience that helped him realize he had to get a clean and once he was clean he was brought on by the Raiders. So now that he's with the Raiders. He's had a breakout 2019 campaign and now twenty-twenty. He's following right back up on that right where he left off after this Monday night's performance. He had a hundred and three receiving yards and the touchdown but I don't want to waste any more time talking about who Darren Waller is let's hear from him in his own words about this fan. Foundation how he put it together and also a little bit on the season so let's get into this right now with Darren Waller. Monday September 28th from 6:30 p.m. To 9:30 p.m. The Darren Waller Foundation is hosting a Gala called be on the wall at the dragon Ridge Country Club. And this is for at risk youth and young adults. First of all, where did you find the time to build this foundation and start putting this together? So Caesar kind of planted do walk-ins last season with friends and people that were close to me about you know, what I could do to give back and start, you know, using my platform in a more way in a way that can really impact lives and found a couple of those things and I got you linked up with prolanthropy and got the foundation going officially back in February. So we just been working, you know, covina's kind of wage goes back a little bit, but it's great to get things going now and to really be able to have a vision of how to serve people out of, you know, really help young people and really get it going so long Starting in February and now we're really getting the ball rolling with this evening coming up next Monday. What does it mean to you to be able to give back? We know the story of how you've recovered from drug abuse and home made yourself into this Dynamic football player. That would just amazing breakout seasons. And now this using your following right up on it. So what has it been like for you to be able to give back to the community? It's been great for me. Honestly. I feel like it's you know, the greatest gift that I have is my story is the things that I've gone through Thursday feel like I've been unique perspective on you know success and you know trying to achieve that success I'll try to do the, you know have a bunch of money in the status wage and football and a whole bunch of friends, but that didn't really work for me and that's what a lot of people try to chase, but it's really comes down to you know, what makes you happy at the end of the day living a life. Tailored to you and one that you respect so I had to do a lot of work on myself and I could avoid a lot of bumps in the road. But that's what made me who I am so I can share knowledge of people and making kind of avoid the pitfalls that I fell in when I was younger. I just want to give them Tools in you know options to you know, choose themselves instead of giving into peer pressure giving into drugs and alcohol when you know, it was really we we know how those certain things kind of play out. So I just want to give him, you know different tools to go about life and certain things that stress them out. Yeah, that's really commendable that you're doing all this and helping me out risk youth when you put forward these type of programs how the people so far how if they come through to you have they found you through your website or have you heard stories from other people and you're like, hey, let me go reach out to this person and try to help out so far has the foundation become to be built. Yeah the dog It's a lot of support right now A lot of people are you know donating a lot of people are you know, giving attention to it and supporting it I feel great about it, but just just by connecting the people on an individual basis that kind of started with me back from Hard Knocks last training camp and people would reach out and relate to my story relate to things that I was going through and kind of let me know what's going on in their life. And so that was the start out where the seed were really planted. And so now it's, you know, putting programs together, you know online communities in front of people and talking and sharing my story share some awful things that I feel like would be helpful to them and really, you know, getting up-close-and-personal with them and let them know that they're not alone in that we're here to help has there been any particular person that you've been able to get up-close-and-personal with a story that you might share with us. If somebody that you've personally helped Most most cases are there's a lot of fans I'll connect with on the internet but I have I have close friends of my like my best friend is in recovery. He got clean like a year after I did and we were kind of going through some of the similar things and I felt he kind of Drew inspiration for me in the way that I was enjoying life clicking and just goes like they were times where we both didn't think was possible. So I feel like for him to look at me and draw inspiration for that and for him to now be leading the life that he's leading off. Um, I feel like that's the most personal example that hits home to me because we can both lean on each other and count on each other and Inspire each other now so that when my best friend being clean means the most to me How so far has your football career kind of helped you to be able to do all of the things that you want to do not just like on your own personal level but to be able to build this kind of foundation as well like to put your name out there and 1/2 this platform. Yeah, I'm having this platform is definitely a blessing, you know, being able to have the full list financially to be able to fund these sort of things being able to you know have access to certain people to put on the executive board for people to help run this Foundation awful lot of things that this platform allows me to access and I'm blessed to be able to have all the people all the resources that do have right now and you know, just trying to try to make the most of it while I have it off make sure that I'm not just using it for my gain and you know my attention to notoriety, but for a real issues and real causes that are really hurt people out there and just trying to help them, you know, Rise Above It Off. Well your football career as well as probably helped you on a personal level to be able to set goals. And also how if you could just explain like maybe the goals that you set for yourself and them how your football career has somewhat helped you get past everything that you were going through. Yeah, I feel like with me getting it cleaned and then getting back into the game of football. I was able to tap into the joy. I had in the past and I have for it when I was really young and just a desire to be grown. No desire to not settle for being average or mediocrity and things like that really pushing myself and putting stresses on The Daily habits and my work ethic and the enthusiasm that I bring to the game and those things that football really challenged me to do on a day-to-day basis. It helps it carry over to other areas of my life and making sure that I'm diligent and disciplined as far as my Approach anything that I want to get involved in. So I really think football and the game has taught me if a lot there are times where I didn't necessarily enjoy the game, but that was my mental approach and me not being open-minded to what football can do for me and for other people. So now I just appreciate still being able to have the opportunity to play and to you know have this opportunity. And your music as well. How much is that serve as an outlet for you to be able to be creative to be able to have another Outlet to express yourself in and to kind of I guess Retreat to when you need something else. Yeah, I feel like there's so necessary to have a like a creative Outlet a creative passion something that's just you and you know, it just makes you feel good. It makes you want to jump around and just I don't know it just makes you feel like you know, you're really creating something that's authentically you in music just it's in my bloodline. And so I just feel like it's something that should be doing and off it should provides a great balance because you know the game of football it does provide a lot but also takes a lot mentally emotionally physically so doing the music kind of helps me pour back into myself and I you know, get some things on my chest. I may be on my model my heart and just you know, enjoy the art of it. About this Gala be on the wall. What can you tell me about the actual event itself? It says there's going to be celebrities. It's going to be kind of interactive as well for people who can't be there in person. What can you tell me about your event wage? Yeah, it's going to be a dragon rich country club next Monday 6:30 to 9:30. There's going to be food. There's going to be awesome items getting auctioned off going to be some some of my teammates. They're we're still working on, you know, who all is going to be there officially, but you got my executive orders going to be there some great people that really serve a live in this community. But yeah, it's going to be awesome. It's going to be awesome event really getting the energy going as far as letting people know what the pin is what programs are going to be really putting forth for the Youth and not just try get the ball rolling and let people know that we mean business as well. You also mean business on the field. You got the Patriots coming up. So how do you expect to follow up on the performance that you had on Monday night football against the Patriots? You you can't let this win hang around too much. It was great when it can be enjoyed, but now it's time to prepare for the next one because it's a good football name both in all three phases of the game, especially on defense great man coverage great blessing I mean Belichick, it's speaks for itself.

Because there's so many great players when you down to the final fifteen after they chop down from one hundred hundred and twenty guys something like that. And you just never know because it's so so hard to get into the pro football fame. You know, they don't just give those out. So, you know, it was it was amazing to give the not because I really did not know if I will get it, you know, and you know, I thought of course, you know, with my for Digital's in championships and the track record and the long jetty, but guess what those other fourteen guys, you know, have the same case. So I'm just so honored in in humbled that they were did they say me worthy Samy fit to be shrine in a pro football fame. Because it's something that I've worked on from day one. And I've always said that you know, about it at the end of the day. You know, my goal was to be shrine in the pro football hall of fame because of guys like might bicker, and the, you know, my uncle Tony Dorsett where I strove for that. Because I spent my summers in high school in Dallas with Tony. So I got to be around it. I got to see his Heisman Trophy. I got the see his hall of fame bus and in. No, those are the things that drove inspired me. So, you know, just to be an atmosphere and being blessed to be around. Tony, you know for so long so many years, I'm taking me in the summertime. I've always wanted to be at that places. Never be another Tony door set. But I wanted to be the first time law and be enshrined in the pro football fan 'cause he he let me know even when I came back after to visit that shipment sale when it came to the Heisman Trophy because I wanted that too. But I still have my mind set on that say, okay is there? But I still got an opportunity to make dismal hear you. I hear ya. I finished third Heisman myself that ships sail. Third and a half, man. That's awesome. Man. I mean, just to be, you know, amongst those guys that have that opportunity man, that's honored itself. And that's how I looked at. You know me being a finalist. I held my head up, you know, as much disappointment, you know, of of not being able to get him. Because being in the conversation is is honored itself. You know what I mean? So that's awesome. And you know, I got a chance to play against him in the pros. You know, you try to pick on me a little bit. I remember that. You know, I ain't gonna hold that against you tight. I know you play you played against him. Now here we're thought you're in you're in film room like on Monday or Tuesday, you get in there and you're playing against a Jim Harbaugh. He's quarterbacking at opposing team. What kind of scouting report did did you did you have on? Jim. I may one Jim had a a hell of a arm and me being a young guy to be ought to be honest with you. I was playing, you know, at the time on peer athleticism, isn't the best steadier? When when when it came to that I was like let me let me cover my garden makes you get beat. All the nuances that I've learned throughout my career. I can honestly say that I didn't pay as much attention to the point it because I was under the impression that they had to pay attention to. The good way. Lynn. What? And I got to put this out there because Jim business at me. It's all low. But when I got me, a pickoff GM, you knew look you're not steal day in Belgium. I Jin horrible as young as a young player and asked him about that thing was my big with my rookie here. You know, what I'm as though that was one of my three pigs old. Thank you. Jim. Do you? Remember, what kind of round it was what was the you know, what I mean what I cannot remember kinda right away. Because I was like that's why I used to be so wore out doing games, and I tried to cover every single route. But as I got older, I started to realize that you know, what why am I so beat up why my soul tire and in a game, you know, because I tried to cover everything. But when you look at you know, office and their tendencies therefore mations, how can it took a lot of pressure off of myself going by understanding that? Yeah. Now, you know, if I was a young player, you know, what I mean, you could save yourself. You know, a few hundred yards a game. If you do that because you know, those tendencies are you know, what I mean, some guys they come out. They're you know, they're not going to run anything. But the run you off in the go route. So why Vert that much energy at the line of scrimmage, especially if you're planning a bump run situation. And it's like not getting the damn ball. Their job is to run their job is the run is fast. They can down a field declare you out. So you know, I just had to learn certain things over time. And I wish I knew I I've known what I know. Now in later, my career earlier, you know, I might I might have save me a gap year to to do. Yeah. Well, you got fifteen years fifteen years loft fifty years National Football League, am I remember too is that was fifteen years of plane fifteen years. I mean, you were you were starter. How many of those years were you a Astaldi daughter? Our daughter fourteen of those fifteen years fourteen in the fifteen years. So that's that's pretty that's pretty darn incredible. Did you have gym moved in it was more. So you know, you had champ Bailey. Oh and a. Yeah. So when I wanted to Denver towards the end of my prayer, but the way to the game is playing now, you're basically a star because everyone's coming out with the most will receive say some clan three row received or so anyway, I was a star today, but I wasn't listed as a starter. But I play the majority of the game pretty much all the game. Because of the way to offices tend the king ago in, you know, allows the star I think that's big too. I mean, how many of those years to will you play in the championship level play in all sixteen games. I mean, that's another thing. I'm not eighteen or nineteen hundred or eight I've pretty much. I I started every game. And unless I was injured I think I missed over the course of my career, maybe eight to ten games that's pretty incredible wherever time high in your career that that you've moved to the safety position over you a corner all of those all those years in the NFL. And that's something that I wish I I could have done, but I play v. Fifteen straight fifteen years at corner that though it was. It was. Maybe I ended up opportunity to talk to Rod Woodson. You know, someone that I that. I my from the position of for a long time Dion Sanders. We are all guys went back. You know and play the safety. Wasn't it a career in in rod listen Joe ball skills? He said man, you know, how many picks you can get you can see Wisconsin. And he got he got the get like thirty thirty five of his seventy-two interceptions at safety. So Ron Borges. Who was my was my advocate for the hall of fame was making my case. When me he called Kansas City at the time is like why wouldn't you play Tai, you know, at safety. And he told me that he's a casting said, well, he's still best corn. You know when I was out. I was at year thirteen. Yeah. You know what I mean? So, you know, part of me wishes I that gonna went back, and you know, I'm gonna probably added some staff total a little bit. You know what I mean? But, you know, plan corner for fifty years was hard or you know, on the body. But that's. What I did. I put a lot of hard work in concentration into what I did. Even when I didn't have the wheels or the, you know speed and quickness that I once possessed, but I start using my brain, you know, what I mean 'cause I clearly couldn't run with the best of many more. But when you have experienced and you have confidence the yourself. You know, I was still able to help the team and be successful. Because you know, I'll play more of a mental game in physical game. Now when you when you were at the university of Michigan mostly zone defense. I I would think at that. Michigan. Correct. Or did you guys play a more more, man? We we were a zone concept team. But I was more of a man of man type guy even I was playing in a coma. Three I will go up there, and and play bunk and run, you know, what I mean, even even the cover three, and they kind of gave me the freedom to do. So because that's what I was a best at the time. I like to take you and the line of scrimmage, you know, take you out of the game. Even if I did a press Bill. Technique. I tried to play at the line of scrimmage, and I knew that's what my strength was. Actually, I was realizing that people wasn't thrown at me. So that's when I started backing off because I wasn't getting the stats. You know that that I would like to see and I knew what my -bility was. And then I start backing off. So I can see the quarterback and read the defenses and things like that. And just to get some numbers because you know, when I play bump, no one with throw it. That's a tremendous thing is here at Michigan. They play probably a great percentage of man to man defense. And I think that's so important and young men that wanna go into the NFL to have that experience in in college to be taught man to man to be put in man-to-man press coverage. It's a great. Oportunity to to get into the pros. Would you agree with that? Oh, yeah. Absolutely. I mean, because it was going gonna come down at some point that is gonna be mono mono me versus new, and that's what I I realize that challenge every time and in in through my through the course of my career, an NFL is that I was assigned, you know, one I gotta give a lot of credit to, you know, coach Pete Carroll because he was the one who initially seen something in me to say, you know, what you you're going to take the best receiver weekend and leak out and by the time, and and I ended up leading the league. And then exceptions, you know, all pro in everything kind of went from there. You know what I mean? But the first time I actually did it was which far sales, and it was just my curve and my urban, you know, week prior in parcel has a way of getting up under your skin out. So his off in my birth going into that game because he rolled. Me all week. And now the week prior to he'd be Niyaz Williams. You know, pretty good. You know what I mean? I think he had like nine catches like two hundred yards and coach for salesman. It'd be no, right. Did he say look this guy's not scared you because I used to try to bully people like it up in face. And that's that's that's the game that I played, you know, I wanted to try to roughhouse, and he was like, you know, what you're good. You scare most people, but you can't scare this guy. Your day of show. No is Williams. I'll tell you that let really puts his meal. So I wanted to that game on the mission, you know, to do whatever I can to be Mike, Irv. And then you know, that was kind of like my coming out party. And I get to an assumption 's in the game, I think we lost the game. But you know, that was a really set the tone at I'm supposed to be here. My phone to less than fifty yards. I company all over the field. He was my timing man to man zone. We don't fight. And that that was it for me. So I'd like, you know, what I'm supposed to be. Then when Pete chair. Okay, man. He just let it go in in every since then I was always assigned to the number. One receiver weather is outside on third down. I'll go into inside and say, you know, what if we have a wanker bed or a Juliette Ataman or somebody like that. I will go off the number one receiver and go to the inside. And that would be my responsibility on third down and get off the Bill. So you know, it was a lot of pressure. But I love it got another question asked is not going to be quite like the getting the call to. To that you made the hall of fame, but we would be honored to share our sideline with you want to ask you to be honorary captain for the game home game against Iowa. That's our homecoming game which is not going to be homecoming type of game. It's going to be a it's going to be a real rough one. But would you be honorary captain for the Michigan? Wolverines the saw. Absolutely, man. I'll be honored. And I will be there. And we don't make this whole. We don't make it a home with them. We go law. Dan. So I'll I'll be honor coaching. Thank you so much. I'll be there. I will be there. Awesome credible. Great great. That is awesome. I love some tiles, our guest here and attack each day, the Harbaugh's podcast. So you get drafted by New England in one thousand nine hundred ninety five first round pick twenty third overall in one thousand nine hundred could you have foreseen three Super Bowl titles and all the different successes that you had into England and beyond. I've always okay and worked hard was excess. Not thought that I will be able to like I was young little we're behind didn't know too much about anything. But I said whatever team I'm I'm going to you know, we're going to win because I'm used to winning. I came from Aliquippa. So, you know, somewhat of a little bit of a hot hands where we go. We don't make it happen, regardless. But to have that type of says three Super Bowls. That's something you can only dream, and yes, I dream big. It was a point in time where I thought I was gonna actually go to the Detroit Lions because everyone's talking and me thinking the same thing, you know, Detroit Lions they was there and on draft day. You know is say they were gonna draft. And then next thing, you know, it the twenty fifth chain. I didn't get the call Detroit was there and they ended up picking Luther Ellis. I got picked three pigs later. Now, did I know what the hell New England's that? Absolutely. Not. I had no idea patriots. You know, what I was just so happy, you know, to get drafted and everything worked out like it was posed to everything, you know, God has a plan. He has a reason why went to New England. And it was the best thing that ever happened for me. Even though at the time. I was like yes, I get drafted in the first round. Yes. You know? I get to help my family out. Yes. I'm gonna get first round signing bonus. But no New England. What? No, you know, hey, I had all kinds of motions going through. Because I also had the Dallas Cowboys there who I grew up cowboy fan of force being twenty said, they was my favorite team. I had a standard Cowboys representatives saying that they were gonna take me. And the twenty eighth pig is. Well, you know what I mean? But of course, you know, Jim the further you drop their list money there. So I didn't want to drop to four too far, you know, being in Michigan Detroit. Hey, that's pretty awesome. Even though there. It went very good New England town wasn't you know, any better. You know what I mean? So I was like, hey, if I drive at least I go to to to my team that I grew up in plan for the Cowboys. But hey, I'm so happy that coach car sales New England, you know, took the chance on me, regardless where I when I was going to go, you know, bust my butt and do the best that I could because I did not want to be a disappointment. Because I wasn't a lot of cheers. And a lot of you know, good energy. When I got drafted to New England. Who was a tie another question. I'm sure coming out Aliquippa great high school football team and program in Pittsburgh. And all that highly recruited what brought you to the university of Michigan. And what did you find there that you were attracted to be honest, guys? I'm going to be honest because Lena we family now, we we wherever I'm I'm I'm well, I'm wolverine, but I committed to Georgia Tech university. You know at the time I made a verbal commitment. Always Ashley, you know. My goal was to play in the SEC. You know, was ACC time was SAC whatever I wanted to Georgia Tech. And I was listening to go to Clemson. But Ron Dickerson at a time was treatment. He ended up taking the head coaching job at temple. And then as I thought about it Michigan on like, I don't wanna leave my grandfather, you know, I was actually the last recruit at Michigan. And I said I came on there. I had a great visit. My roommate yellow ends in who was the top. Db come now he would afford academy. Michigan state came to visit me, and they said, look, I hear you talking about Michigan. But I'm telling you there's a kid by the name of Diablo Anderson that he's the best thing I've ever seen. And I and I, and I and I promise you, you know, you have a chance to play here. But you probably won't see the field there. So I kicked him out of my live room at me. Terrible recruiting. Oh there. So when I went to Michigan. We had his yellow came in with his, you know, his low cadet stuff on it. You know at the military without thought was, you know, kind of soft myself, you know, and we ended up being the best friends, but I was signing his ass up. We'll talk. You know, what I'm gonna go to Michigan one to see my grandfather, the see my. So my grandfather could see me play because Michigan. I wonder I did not want to go to Penn State because everyone speaking me to go to pit because of you know, the tradition in alpena so many guys down didn't I wanted to go out of state and make a name for myself? So I chose Michigan on the fact that I want my grandfather played they're gonna play five six games on TV. Secondly, I want to go there and beat the hell out of Michigan state. You know, because of you know, what he said to me. And that's how I made the decision was not anything in particular about, you know, you know, the school the program, I'm just being honest. And I was like, you know, I'm making my decision on that. Then third from people telling me as far as the education in case. I did not make it to the pros when you Reggie weight from the university of Michigan. You're guaranteed to get a job. So those were things that maybe say, you know, what I'm gonna take a chance of myself, even though I was the. Absolute last recruit at the university of Michigan. I'll say it. I was going to go to state. I say, look, I'm gonna come to biscuit. But I gotta take this. Busy state real quick. Not not knowing the significance of the Michigan, Ohio state rivalry. I really did not know Gus and I told the guy that house they they sitting in my living room. I mean, Michigan. I said I'm going here. But I'm gonna cut what you just gotta go one of my buddies. I play high school start say they'd how state when I'm just going on my my last recruiting trip. Today. Like, no, no, no. You can't go there that might not say he's today's please look if you're gonna come with us scholarship is they talked me out of they talked me out of going to a house state, and I decided to go with Michigan and the rest of history. And I it was the best decision that I that. I could have made like I said everything happens for a reason, you know, you guys stuck with me to gave me the opportunity to play right away. And you know, I never looked back. That was the worst recruiting pitch. I've ever heard ever. Exactly, you're not gonna. And that's why they were there. Wow. It's a great great story. Great story. Great tie law from Aliquippa Pennsylvania, joining us here and attack each day, the Harbaugh's podcasts, and I know we're we're looking forward to having you come back here in the fall to be honorary, captain, what's it gonna be like for you to come down that Tuttle once again, I can't wait, you know, it's been so long. I've been so busy playing. I haven't got a chance to to get back as much as I would like and to have this opportunity to go back and Beal, it'd be it'd be a part of homecoming comments come down tunnel. You know, hopefully, you know, I get this back taking Terrence on Gordon and jump up into thing. I get off right now. My back is killing me. But I'm I'm gonna just enjoy it, and, you know, live through the guys out there. And I'm a part of that. I'm a part of that tradition. I'm gonna part of coming down there upsetting, you know, so many teams, especially Ohio State Michigan state. So it's like man, I I'm I'm in better than the university of Michigan. I talked to Charles listen all the time. You know what? I mean, we're talking about doing business of their. In together, man. So this is gonna be this is gonna be awesome for me. And then, you know, hopefully one day, and I'm putting it out there right now got a son that plays quarterback. That's all he wants to do is go to university of Michigan. So you know, we're working on that right now. So Jim I'll need you to work on his quarterback because my job, but I told him my job would pick you up, you know, man. So I can't tell you. I can't tell you. But so much make but you know to get to Michigan and play at that level. You gotta be willing to work and you've got to put it in. You know, what I mean, they don't just give out scholarships. We'll matter who your daddy is. So they guess what? I'm hoping that. I come back and have a great time. And hopefully, I can come back for years to come because my son has his mind, and he's going to be a little rain. So so hopefully, I'll be up there for a long time. We love it. We love we we've got several several players that their their dad's played here at Michigan. That's a that's a great tradition force here. And they're all all doing really well. So we we look forward to that. Also, also, just speaking a little bit about what you've done business wise. Unite talked about that a little bit but acquire and the airtime here in Ann Arbor, which we love I on a personal a personal level. I can tell you that we go there a lot for birthday parties. Anytime one of my kids. Has a birthday party or the other kids in class? Have birthday you go over to airtime? It's a great place and then also in recruiting here. We we go there quite a bit then official visit weekends and the guy's love it. So looking forward to having you back in here and taking over that airtime. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Great. Visit is a great company and breakfast entities, though. I mean, it's just the right? Is this the right move. Both of us. And I'm looking forward to expanding the you know as much as we can because not thought about a lot of different businesses. And not only, you know, is it a great business. But it's fun. You know, I go to work in a polo and some sweatpants. And you know, what I mean, I don't gotta be all buttoned up some time because it's all about fun. I love getting back, you know, to to the youth, and you know, where you're talking about hiring processes, and which I'm most proud about is giving, you know kids 'cause we have a lot of young kids giving them opportunities to work. Would you rather? Go flip burgers and fries. Or would you rather? Be in nice fun atmosphere with music plan, you know, people jumping around and this is healthy. You know what? I mean, you're out there you're exercising. When you don't even know it 'cause you're out there. Having fun is something that the whole family can do together, man. So the whole family. Two year old gets on those trampolines doesn't starts rolling around now. But about you ain't got that warms the heart. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Luli been the kids nowadays. That's all it's all it's all about video games. You know, when I grew up, you know, you know, get outside and go play. You know what? I mean. He's video games. It's killing everything obesity rates and things like that. So I say, you know, what this is the this is the business that I want to do, and I wanna make an impact, and I wanna make a difference, and you know, being in the six years now, we just opened up our twenty four store in Philadelphia was another Michigan alum, you know, about the way who's a franchisee of mine Jason avant, and he just opened up his second location, and he'll be opened up his third in a couple of months. So, you know, we have some rule rains, you know, in grant here and launching which ought to make it happen. Hey, we'll rains over aids in the business world, they didn't they didn't lie to you. When they were cruising. Speaking of that just hit me that one of your teammates has a son that's here now eight and Hutchinson was a true freshman force this past season and play played quite a bit at defensive end. Even even started some games and you play you play with his father in Michigan. Who's now? Now, a doctor so he's a doctor. Yeah. Chrome messy. That's that's you guys play together. Right. Chris. So yeah. After we have bristle, I did what kind of doctor is messy. That's that Michigan education. Talking about role. It. But you have a backup plan is just not just about you know, football. And that's something that, you know. My grandfather said look it wasn't just about me going there and him seeing me playing which I was based on my decision on that. He was talking about the education. If you go there, you're going to be okay in life. I know you wanna go to the pros. I know you wanna do this. But a whole lot of things gotta happen to go your way to go to the pros. But he would say you can always fall back on his education. And when you get an education from the university of Michigan, you'll be set for life. And you know, so bows on the reasons why I chose that. My grandfather had a lot of influence. I was thinking one way he was thinking of other. So guess what you know, it all worked out for a reason. And now, I get to come back, and represent, you know, myself I represent my family, I represent the we'll raise coming there on you'd become their home. Hey, let me ask question.

Jason Velazquez bother of Joe Jason welcome to the podcast oria good. How are you doing? Really well. And so we go from an Aliquippa Pennsylvania area, Pittsburgh area. Got to Columbus area guy. That's got to make it quite unique for Joey as he still in school at the U of M part of it. Yeah. It's been very interesting to say, the least for Joey and in that aspect, so I want to jump right in with the recruiting process because this one coaches a really unique one because Joey was a baseball player. I before I put in the recruiting process. Yes, sir. I and he was in Ohio State commit for baseball. So how did the baseball commit and all that plot leading into the football side of. So he's committed to baseball right outright up right out of his freshman nine days into a sophomore year of high school season high school year so committed to baseball and high state, but he had a whole bunch of universities coming after him and got offered. Pretty much everybody around the country committed to us date. But always wanted to play football football was was thing that was love football one to play football. Told us little brothers who wanted to play football. So on a Saturday or Sunday night. They made us huddle film form they went and made us huddle. They said and out or posted it on huddle. And then that Monday morning Monday afternoon, coach Harbaugh on his staff must have seen it. And they called the sales and offered them a place at Michigan. And there was often running from there. So it was exciting. That was his that was his junior junior year tape. Yes, sir. That's the first tape that I saw was his junior tape here. And then we liked it about him. He was really versatile player, and it was playing a lot of running back catching the ball out of the backfield. He was running. He was he was also playing some safety plan some linebacker. I thought was this is this is a player. That's that's probably a better Jordan glass. Cow. Just from what we saw athletically on tape and enjoyed Glasgow is is. Really made himself a heck of a special teams player in a starting viper, etc. And the other thing about the tape was he was he was hurt a good point of the year. And he had the ankle he was playing through that. And yeah, originally going into his junior year, he had a hip pointer that he that he hurt knowing camp with having a real good camp. And then he had a hip pointer was supposed to put them out the first eight weeks looked at me and said, you know, with baseball didn't know how much football how much football left. He said, I don't want to miss it weeks. Football love football. There is football after high school. Then I don't wanna miss eight games. I don't wanna miss eight games, regardless. And so he got himself back before the first game this season. I think he sat only two weeks somehow got himself back, and he was ready to go, and here's another here's another great case, though, two of the power of camps in the summer very much. Joey came to our camp competed, like the dickens ran. Really well to tie had a good a good forty time on them and competed really, well and all the drills, but the other was the satellite camp that he was at in Cincinnati in our coaches went down to that. He played up. He had a double header going on in baseball the same as this camp. It was at my Ohio. Yes. And so the story comes back to me that. He went to the the session in the morning for the football camp. Then he had to leave to go play into double header and then came back in the afternoon and ended up winning the MVP for db at the camp. But he played a doubleheader baseball in between. Well, played one game one game one game in the morning. Then went the. That's what it was. They went back and had the winning hit and the baseball game. So that was it w played a doubleheader went to the camp between football camp got the MVP. And then went back to the baseball game. So I was like, man. That's awesome. That's great. How how do you do in baseball game going to find out? He had to have the gave winter afternoon as well. So that that really that really sealed it for us. And and then the next call I made was Eric back over at the baseball team because I love the two sport athlete not only in in high school. But also if they can do it in college. I mean, it makes it a lot more fun for me to go to the baseball games. If one of our football players is actually on the team so in play and not just spitting seeds right out there on the bench. But Eric was really fired up. You know about the prospects of Joey coming here. So then that's that's how we how we framed the recruitment from from. Then on was that he could do both play football and baseball. Here at Michigan. Even the week we've committed we came down to the Michigan camp we were in Atlanta and drove any played on Sunday and drove down for the the Michigan camp was I believe it was a Monday or the Monday or Tuesday only drove down back from Alanna to make the Michigan camp. So I mean there their power in the camps because we we weren't going any cans because in the summer, it was always filled with the baseball schedule. So this this past summer was the first time joy ever been to any camps. We we had a couple of players back in the seventies. I coast you're from seventy three seventy nine we had Rick Leach. Yup. A four year starter here at quarterback and a baseball player. And I remember spring game bold move the spring game. I think up to eleven o'clock so Rick could be participate in the spring game. And then it's the Spurs spring game was over jumped into the locker room. But on the baseball uniform. They drove him over to the stadium for a Saturday afternoon baseball game, and he got into winning hit got their distant time to get the win the hit for the and then another one, Jim. Patrick. Yeah. Remember, Jim the I do remember, Jim. And he had a brother that played with the dodger som-, right? Top story played with the dodgers about that same time. So back in bows day, there were several baseball football football guys at that time that Toby Gerhart was outstanding running back force at Stanford. He played both sports as well. And you know, the policy has always been for me in the places I've been is if there elite elite coming out of high school in in two sports, then by all means we can we can make it work where you play play two sports. Now, if if they're just going to spit seeds. And try to get out of winter conditioning or try to get out of spring practice. No, they're not really elite elite sports same with track. I've had guys that want to want to do track. Because it was it was easier to go go to meet somewhere and not not be in the weightlifting or the winter conditioning or the or the spring practice just to get one point for the track team finished tenth or eleventh in in the hundred did not did not allow you to to sports. I mean, he had to be had to be good at bright. You know? And your son's actually, not really just a dual sport athlete. He's a black belt to. Yes, he's black bound taekwondo and jitsu. That's correct. After visiting the home of going, the I could see that a black belt in that house. You need to. Need to be something that there's a lot of little mid now. Hey, guys are everywhere. I mean, they come at you. They wanna wrestle. They want to throw footballs at you. I mean, we have their seven children Joe, Joey is the oldest brother the second child, but the little ones are active. They liked the play though, eight the rest of the way. So you need to be on always on guard when you walk in our house how many times you your family? You say you're they're wrestling around. They're coming off the walls off the floors. If I have to tell you one more time, I'm coming up there. Do you ever? Do you hear that very often? Well, only when my wife starts is. Are you going to do something about that?

So we had to separate them had to be one one-two-three whether or not we're not causing injury on the home visit break in anything. But Aaron didn't care.

Now, Erin Eric cooks kind of describe because I saw it firsthand. I mean there there's food coming out of every part of the kitchen. I mean, there was there's there was pizza buffalo buffalo. Buffalo heats up with chicken pizza over there. And you're making bites. You get Alfred. Oh, so we're from Youngstown Ohio originally, Aaron and I. So, you know, we grew up with Sunday dinners and big family dinners. You know, you know, that's just the way we grew up and family's very important about the bus. Well, when I first met Aaron, and we were going to get married, and she's told me that she wanted to have ten children in my dad said, listen, I love Aaron she's a beautiful woman. Don't marry. Wow. He said ten children. Away. Don't do it. So we have it. But I have the best wife in the world. So family is really important to us. And when we moved away we moved away, we want the kids have that same kind of atmosphere, you know, family atmosphere and Sunday dinners, always been one of the things that we've always remembered growing up, you know, cousins and aunts and uncles and family getting together on Sunday. So we kind of we kinda opted that you know for the neighborhood. So our house on a Sunday can get anywhere from twenty to sixty to seventy people in Aaron starts in the morning, and she'll make homemade homemade pasta, the anything and she's just cooking from morning until night. My two sister-in-law's are over my mother-in-law's over and they're making food and every net anybody and everybody if you've been invited over once then the rule of houses. Hey, listen. You don't get a second invites automatic invitation come over when you want. You don't have to call it off asked just come over. And and people just stop by and just come by. And even in the forty fifty sixty sometimes on a Sunday. That's how many people are eating at last quiz house. And I made the I made the comment that you always make you know, we've always made your coach you're coming in. We got a couple of other coaches within you're doing the you're doing the home. Visit and all of a sudden, I mean, this great food that that you're eating and you're just sit down and getting served all the scrape boot meals, and and you make you make the comment like muscled credible. You just way you always eat. And usually you get back. No coach, this is just just because you're here, we did it special. This way, we all. Open auto blink without a balloon. I thought about it used to be in good shape, like married. Where where did you go to high school in in Youngstown, what the Cheney oh Cheney who was yo coach their renowned coach whether it's red Angelo, right? Angela. Yup. And he had children at play our kids at played football. He was there. What for seventy five eighty years? He was there for a long time. And then at made he took over then coach Berta took over after him, and they were all Cheney y'all graduates graduates you and your wife, she went to Mooney Mooney. Highschool a little bit of a rival. Yeah. For sure. A lot of family. The weather Mooney Cheney. Great great tradition out of Youngstown. Really good tradition. We've had an amazing amount of conversations if somehow end up back in high school football and Ohio. Yes, and Young Sam another we can bring your boy, your guy Jerry Hanlon back with that conversation when he got to be in a couple of hall of fame me, what will speak in a wheel side baseball conversation. And when Joey was he was this past Jerry's vote. The Mr. how baseball player of the year at the at the banquet, I was also told that this guy in one thousand nine hundred fifty seven next to me was all state baseball player. Also. Wow. They showed us the box for the all star game guy. Be jacquard ruled. I will say this in the in the box score. There will not be a one in the hit com. Not a two in there either. So. That's an all star game in your in the box stores. So that's why I I had a bed strikeout net game. I remember I was just thinking about the other day. Of course, it was caught hosting was a pitcher in there and Bernie owl in with the Minnesota Twins him as the second baseman and Wayne fonts within that game. And I was at bat in in Columbus, Ohio and jet stadium. And this guy threw me a ball. I had two strikes, and I said to myself I just got to get by bat on the ball. And he threw one at least four feet over my head. Can you just imagine? Just missed it. I mean. If I can just fall off. Wait to see another pitch. Right. Another. Thanks for bringing that. Brought the AllState or you went into detail. Well, you were going to to spare me. Jack are at age seventy nine a member like a steel jam real Lutely. And my mom's the same way. It's it's incredible. I have great great merits. But life's all about you. Get older memories. Good seat. Joy was here for the the Michigan state Michigan basketball game. Look great. Now is he is a made. He had an injury. Did he have an injury? Just you know, he'd just went something tweets us pack when he was lifting nothing that was wondering are nothing. Just in great shape filled better, you can stress it a little bit. And he's healthy now and feeling good. Nothing slows them down. I mean guy the guy doesn't stop. I mean, he's always working out. Always always getting after it. I think you know, this is that mo- how excited his e for his senior season baseball that one last high school sports season to to get out there. Oh, he's he's very excited. I mean, he just loves to compete. I mean, Joe he's always always in that mode to compete and get after it. And I think that's this lies ready to get after it and compete. So he's excited. You know? He's he's looking forward to it. Yeah. Sounds like a Harbaugh guy guy that wants to get after every step of the way. Whether I'm looking at gym or Jack, it sounds like a Harbaugh kind of guy. Yeah. For sure for sure mean, I think that's was the big thing about the camps. When when he when when it was time to come camp season. He couldn't wait to get down here. I mean, you know, the recruiting process works is you got to mature offered to come down here. And he couldn't wait to get down there and compete in front of the coaches note. Mill coach Brad talked to coach Brown, and they made a promise. And bronze listen, you're gonna come down here and compete, and then you, and I are going to have a heart tarred conversation afterwards. And I'm going to work with my own two aunts, and he couldn't wait to get down there. And do that. Always stands out. You know when you line up at a camp. And there's some guys that don't want to compete at the camp. They wanna they just wanna stand watch. And maybe do an interview or something like that. But not Joey, okay. We're gonna run forties. Step up ran to think he was thinking crack the four fives. And then then wanted to do a third because he thought he could run a faster game five then any ran. And by that he he didn't. He was he was meagher's now. That's it. No more. You know, what he wanted to? He wanted to third which we he ran and then he wanted to afford. Now, they're not going to do a four three threes. Too many wrangles we should have stopped it to you know, as we talked to fathers and have chance to have met players that are here that the eight that are here. That's a thread that works its way through this recruiting class is competitiveness. You know, you get caught. Up in that and wanting to compete in different sports and wanting to compete in different events in shy away from nothing. I think that's a really something to keep an eye on with this class. I said it before it's a class that they're not allergic to work, and Joey and and the other twenty five guys that are coming in this class. Really? That's exactly right. It's a threat. It's a competitive Seraing. It's a it's a thread throughout this class. And what we're learning in these lucky sports parents segments of the podcast is that they get it from their parents like you guys we've got it from the other parents as well, you guys have taught that coached it. It's been instilled in them that competitiveness, and I'm guessing having six siblings around the house probably helps too. Yeah. It's very competitive in our house, and that's the way it's always been in our house. You know, we set a standard at our house. And if it was school if it was chores, whatever it was. There was always going to be disciplined. There's always going to be kind of -bility. There's always going to be a work ethic. I think sometimes that's lost nowadays on children. And I mean, Aaron and I. We knew if we were going to have children we're gonna have a lot of them that we wanted that to be at the forefront for them. And it has been for all of them. I think that means not only what's what we still do them. Nothing. They got a lot of that through martial arts all of them been through that. So it's been really good for them. As far as you know. A question. I was going to ask if you had a chance to to meet, I know you've met some of the other parents if you had a chance to communicate with them by telephone and get a chance to meet them not too much through telephone. But yes, I've met a lot of them down here. All great people. Can't wait to spend the next Ford for five years with these guys. Just great people you meet their children, you have met a lot of the kids. It's almost like you're talking to coach Harbaugh said the same thing. It's almost like you're talking to another Joey rate. It's like Joey from California. This is Joey from Florida. This is joy from Connecticut. I mean, you you you're having a conversation and a lot of the kids. I I mean, the kind of reserved, but you can tell they have that working respectful way about them. Good personalities. It's a great class. Great people. You know, when you're sending your your son off to somewhere, you're putting them around a bunch of good people. They're going to push him. And he's going to be able to push and it's going to be a good cross. And then it'd be around and they're going to grow together. It's going to be great to see having him on campus. Of course, there's some other guys ready. Here's he had a chance to I know he was here for. The game. You have a lot of interaction with the guys that already here to kind of get an idea of what they're going through. Yeah. They have they have a group chat for my understanding of a group chat in Joey came down. He wanted to come down this week and spend some time with those guys. So we got him down here early wanted to walk around kind of get used to the Michigan winners and get used to campus and walking around. So he spent some time with those guys I know that him and Kate and gave went to church on Sunday morning. They got up went to church, then went to the basketball. And then we went over to the economic Saturday one to see what that was like those guys had that on Sunday. So he wanted to get used to that afterwards. Went to lunch. Does guys wants to the basketball game? They came back with Mikey afterwards. And they were over here the bow facility than did some things there. Then it went back and hang out the dorm afterwards. So I had a real good week. And with those guys and just talking to this guys not only not only guys in his class. He was also, you know, talking with afterwards. He was also able to get along with the fence some spend some time with the guys the older guys that role. Real great to him. You know, things are going to be and how you know what to expect and stuff like that. So it's just not to guys in his class that he's starting to bond with it's also the older guy. So you can start to see the family atmosphere here I've gotten older and having gone through this process or forty six years as a coach. And now seeing it as a as a parent and a coach as as as you look at it boys had this you are with whom you association, and is apparent how good it is for the parent to see their youngsters going to be around others that share in their goals as released epidemics as it relates to f- Lennox as it re work ethic. I mean, it's got gotta bring great pleasure. I would think to to to you and your wife. Absolutely. I mean, there's a comfort level that. Hey, listen. He's going to be around other people. They're chasing this woman in the same direction east going on right? Because they're young right? Sometimes you know, you wanted to be around other guys that are motiva- just like him. But we've also taught our children that we don't want them to be guys that just take right or people that just take we. I mean, we want Joey not only job, but the rest of our children be people to give back right? And we told him. Hey, listen, you're going there. Also to do a job right to to give back the university. Give back the people that are giving you a lot. So, you know, you do things the right way. You do things the way you were raised you you do the extra stuff that you need to do. Just don't do anything. But these keeping the person that you're being don't change don't change because you know, you became Michigan mobile player with the Michigan baseball player, you keep being Jill you keeping the person that we raised you to be in the person that he has majority is a great kid. He's always thinking of others. And we just want him to continue to be that guy also influence other guys. And and you know, hang around the right people. I dad always told us bird's. Feather flock together that same philosophy know top se tell me who your friends are. And I'll tell you your. Kind of same thing. We told archea totally told your friends wise. Yeah.

Like my away that time about one hundred eight five pounds or ninety pounds and it came in. And he just said, you know, I'm coming here for a scholarship.

But if everything goes, well, and he earned quickly scholarship, and then pretty soon he the starting wingback and move through program turned out to be one of our one of our outstanding outstanding student athletes.

I want to be the best. I can be welcome to our team. Jack talk as you get older you get to be seventy eight years old. Here's what I find hair grows in places that had hadn't been before. Welcome to hashtag, Jack talk. It's now time for everybody's favorite segment of the week here and attack. Stay the Harbaugh's podcast. Check talk as we get words of advice in great words of wisdom from Jack Harbaugh here on the podcast before we get into some team building conversations, we should go back and talk about a team at a yours. You went out to Kansas this past week. And unfortunately to go out for a funeral but a chance to celebrate the life of one of your former teammate Chuck Ramsey. Former teammate national championship of nineteen fifty nine. In fact, this this year, we'll be celebrating our sixtieth anniversary that national championship. But Tokyo's an outstanding player on that team. Those days you played both ways he was an offensive guard and allying backer and was a place kicker on the team. So it shows is athletes as well. And and just a just a fantastic teammate is wife Patti passed away four or five years ago. Jackie and Patty were cheerleaders three of those four years that we that we were bowling green. So we got to know got to know her as well, but the celebration of life. It's an amazing experience that we have to be able to to celebrate that life and Jackie and I went out and through this couple things about Chuck number one. He adored his wife Patti. And when when she passed you could see a little bit of him at at passed it. Well, you see the three great kids. Cbs Chucky, Christine, and Kathy all very successful in life. Great joke. Had great inlaws is as well seven grandchildren all in college athletic doing extremely well wanted graduated from college. And then then a great granddaughter. But and the and the love he had for them. But interesting guy, fun guy example of his we got to be with them in Florida a couple times over the last two or three years with Chuck, and and he would go into a room or he knew absolutely no one and before it was all over it. It was as if he had known those people for most of his life. It was this eye contact. It was sincerity at storytelling. And he was he was a great connector. I know we're taking I've got to tell you this story. I coach at western Kentucky university in the nineties Chuck in. Tuck and Patti came to visit us in bowling green Kentucky. We're playing eastern Kentucky whom we hadn't beaten baby since we had been there. Maybe once but we were on a roll of not beating eastern Kentucky. Our our big rival Chuck was out a coaching. Then he had coached at Wichita state plane crashed he was on the other plane got out of coaching, and it was in the plastics business and very successful doing very very well in the plastics business. So they come to visit there for the game. So I told him Chuck, I need you. I know how passionate you can be you got to give this team a pep talk to get them ready to play football game. I should know prepare you got Saturday Saturday night game prepare take as much time as and then I'm gonna call on you about ten minutes before the game. And I want you to pay peel the paint off of this wall with a with a talk that's going to get them ready to play and he was ready. And so we're in the locker room and ten minutes before. The game. We're ready to send him out on the field. I look around the team, you know, their helmets strapped on. And there were a little beads of sweat coming down off their forehead. And they looked like they were ready to play. Now. It's time to call on Chuck Chuck tall gave him a little introduction about the national championship team. And he walks around the corner, and he's walking the talk to the team, and he looks around and he just stares at something behind me teams out in front. He's looking at me with his back to the team. And he stood there for it seem like minutes, but it probably was seconds. But it just say come on come on. You guys are ready to go and he looks around. And he and he told you the TB says she those two plastic containers back there, I made them. I'm the guy that's responsible for those containers. I've ever seen better containers, you're able to put your trash in one you're able to put your your dirty uniforms, and the other design for this kind of situation are those the most outstanding. And he just kept going those guys come on. And finally turned around to the TV goes, Jack. I don't think I need to say anything. They're ready to play. And they storm out the door out out to the field. They go and check said, Jack, I could see this when I walked into the room. I mean, they they didn't need anything. They just needed to get to the field. I kind of broke the moment with a container talk. But to get him on the field. So those are the kind of stories and memories that you share? Plastics the graduate, right plastics popped in. He'll thing is before we get to talking about team building. There's an amazing skill to be an extrovert to be an outgoing to walk into a room where you don't know anybody and to be able to go to everyone confidently shake their hand look him in the I have a conversation with them know, something about them when you leave. They all like, oh, there goes Chuck and everybody now knows them and not everybody has been on teams that you probably have captains that were introverts. And they lead, by example, and they're quiet and other teams and other players that are captains lead by voice. Chuck, obviously seem like a guy that probably a little bit of both based on the plastic speech. But to be an extrovert. I mean, that's something not everybody has it. I don't think everybody is comfortable in their own skin to do that. No. We talk about that a little bit before it's its its ability to engage, and I think you engage in in different ways. And you gotta use your own person whenever you're personnel. If you're an extrovert, maybe an extra fear nine an extrovert, but just engage. And it's with a smile and with I contact it's not that you're trying to avoid people by looking over top of them or looking past them to see you who else is in the room when when you run into someone I mean, it's I contact, and you engage, and when you engage you learn something about them that you might share a story about or or something about and then it's this engaging back and forth. And and I think in some ways in our society today, we've lost that a little bit with a social media and the phones, and we don't, and we don't we don't engage people. But I think it's such a talent. And it's so rewarding in your family life to be able to do that in your professional life to do that. And just in finding joy in life with by visiting and being able to engage people if that's not your skill in life, find a partner that it is her skilled. That's not my skill. I'm great with people. I know with new people a roomful. People that I don't know. I'm not that good. It's just not. That's not my that's not my my scene. I'm not good at that. You know, even in work environments. Why do you think that is? I don't honestly have. No, it's just it's something inside of you. It's shyness. It's an introvert nature. I I can't explain it. It's just you become a little uncomfortable. If you're not really good at talking in front of groups which thankfully in this job. I've gotten better at over the years, but like I had an event a bunch of years ago. And my job was to sit do some speaking which I can do in front of the room. But then get people to sign up for something. And I'm not the guy that walk around the room with the sign up sheets. My wife takes the sign up book. She's around the room. Mexico's she's got a stack aside. So I'm like, that's why brought you got to find the right the partner. Right. The great the best recruiting that you've done. Right. You find the right partner and coach's wife may be the most important occurred that you'll ever convince contacts that they make but tell you a story when I left coaching at western Kentucky in two thousand and two I went to Marquette as an associate athletic director, and my role was fundraising. And they had this feeling about this guy was a coach in this guy. Recruited in this guy is going to be dynamite. But I only had one thing that held me back from doing a good job at fundraising. I could not ask for money. I think we might have talked. You can you can have the conversation. I I'm very similar. I had a very short sit and sales. And because if people say, no, I'm like, okay. I don't even like the ass. But yes, that's a that's a skill in itself. Though. The asking part that's a skill in the I could sit and talk, and we're talking about this talking about this this game that game families. I can do your. You're the warm up act. I'm the warm up and finally after a couple sessions, they really this guy is done the people in the fundraising and they'd say, oh, well, you're you're going to be like Ed McMahon. No, you will warm up the crowd and then excuse yourself. And then we'll have somebody come close and ask for money, but my mouth would move. But nothing would come out when I came to cave. That moment. That's a tough thing to ask for money and Steph, that's a really tough thing. No matter what your businesses, even if it's your judge a tough thing to do. So all right. So we wanted to talk a little team building as well. Because you're telling me a little bit beforehand about a book that you read a little while back that a lot of parallels that you've seen in different things that you've experienced in your life after I got out of coaching in two thousand and two probably two or three years down the road. John gave me a great book. I've read it at least eight times, I've got it all marked up and red and blue and all the different colors because it has such an impact on me. And the name of the book was the five dysfunctions of a team and was written by Patrick Lindsay Oni out in in San Francisco, and it had such an effect on me. I read the book, and I put it down. And I looked off into space and said that's both Becker. That's the model that he used at the university of Michigan building the team. Now, he never talked about it as deflections or whatever he just that was the way he. He ran the football program here at the west at at the university of Michigan. And so started to look at this similarities, and what it is. It's a giant pyramid that he that he builds and the bottom flat longest. Lever in that. Pyramid is trust and ability. Whether it's a professional team at work, or whether it's your most important team that you ever have in your life the team at home and your family trust. You know, you never lie. You never cheat. You never steal your trustworthy. That's that's where it all starts. The next lever on that is Bose greatest talent was conflict. He wanted conflict every single day. What conflict really is is discussion ideas, come from different directions? Sometimes you get very animated if don't be surrounded by. Yes men. Right. If you if you walk by a Bo sham Boeckler meeting ofensive meeting back in the seventies and eighties. You would think it was not one man in the room that liked any other man in that room, and it was all generated by him. But when he did that he pulled things out ideas. And then they would argue about him and talk about them and beat them up and. In all of that. Then came the number three lever commitment once that you had discussions, and you you beat it around for fifteen twenty twenty-five minutes. Then you commit you committed yourself something and most of the time it was what Bo probably are ready had decided that you were going to do. But he just wanted the dynamic of the discussion about it. And then came next on the fourth lever on that five lever pyramid was accountability. And it's easy to say, I'm going to be accountable for my position the way, we discussed it as the way, we're going to do it the way I'm going to teach it my players are committed to it. When I talked to my players. It's for my idea, even though it may not have been, but that's what we're committed to as a team, then it then it became accountability. But the hardest part of that is you hold each other accountable. If you see something that's happening. It's not what you discussed it. It's not the way you wanna do. You have to speak up. That's not the way we're doing it. And that's difficult to do. Whether it's at home with your family, or it's it's in your business. What you're normal thought is well when the boss finds out he isn't doing it the way we're supposed to do it. The boss is really going to get after him. But if you're working in a in a team type situation, each we hold each other accountable for it. Then the last top of the pyramid is team goals is team goes not individual goals. It's team goals. The team the team the team, and that's what bowl brought to the head of his style. And the way he led his organization here at the university of Michigan. So it's it's again, it's at giant pyramid here at home with your family think about it. First thing at the bottom is trust next thing is conflict discussion. The next thing is commitment committing to some form of idea or how we're going to do it. Holy each other countable. And then all team goes not necessarily individual things. But how can we make this team the best team that we possibly can? It's a great words of wisdom once again from Jack here on Jack, talk and attack each day. The Harbaugh's podcast awesome.

The Sporting Life: E:60 Special

"Welcome to a special edition of the sporting life, presented by e sixty years, Jeremy shop. Welcome to a special edition of the sporting life, presented by e sixty over the next hour. We're going to share with you. My story about Tony Mandarich, who's considered one of the biggest busts in NFL draft history. In the one thousand nine hundred nine draft for the first five players selected would eventually be enshrined in the pro football hall of fame, but the second pick in the draft Mandarich would never come close to that level. Here's the first part of our story. Tony Mandarich was born September twenty third nineteen sixty six in Oakville, Canada. A Toronto suburb. He and his older brother. John were raised by parents who had immigrated from postwar Yugoslavia. I had a great childhood. I mean, I played soccer for seven eight years. And I think that was a crucial part of developing my athletic ability, because you're running, you're moving, you're changing directions. All those things play a factor in the long run. We started excel in sport, especially my brother gonna us five years older. And I was like, I'll be damned if he excelled one I do you know 'cause he'll get all the attention. He's my mentor. He's my idol. Tony grew up watching his older, brother. John play football in cheering for the late nineteen seventies Philadelphia Eagles. Eleven years old. I had made a career decision. I took out some paper and pencil, and I wrote down the goals and the time line that I was going to. Plan the NFL or playfully eagles, and I was going to be a playboy photographer, but as grew up out, Don wanna be a playboy photographer navy Sunday. It'll be a photographer. But first, he played football during high school in the early eighties. He started lifting weights he developed into a force on the offensive line. He wanted to play college ball in the US, just like his brother who was playing at Kent state in Ohio. Eleventh grade game along. It was like, oh, the chances are getting slimmer, it almost got to the point where it was like, no matter how good you play your senior year, you still not going to get noticed. But Tony's brother John had a plan. My brother and I had talked, and he's like, you know, I think it'd be good. If you came down and played a Kent Roosevelt, high school and lived with me, because you would get way more exposure. See your brother's going into his senior year is football player at Kent state, and he says, I want my kid brother to come live with me so he can get looks from American college codes the whole motivation. Tony's parents signed off, they would send Tony to live with his brother, John in Ohio, in the fall of nineteen eighty three. It was at this time that John made a stunning confession to his little brother. I remember he was like, hey, you know, I take steroids. Right. I'll what, you know, like no. How am I supposed to know it blindsided me, but up to that point you'd never thought about steroids? Never it. He felt that that was the best chance or it was one of those things that unless you're gifted with, like ridiculous talent. Your most gotta take it to get to that level, but playing it Kent Roseville high school is a senior Mandarich says he didn't use steroids. He showed enough promise anyway, to attract attention from d one programs. That's when a young Michigan state assistant coach named Nick Sabin paid a visit. John Nimick, who is the coach Kent, Roosevelt's and all time, Fran, I, stop and see John and all of a sudden, he's got this giant of guy who's a very good athlete who has a lot of potential. And like this guy just came onto the planet from nowhere. He didn't get really that heavily recruited because of a lack of exposure. So it was a happenstance, connection really for me in nineteen Eighty-four when he was eighteen Mandarich signed with Michigan state. But by the time he arrived on campus. He had made a decision that would change everything. Steroids work extremely well, it was not let me think about it because I knew what I wanted to do. And if that was going to help propel me there. Than was the big deal. As a redshirt freshman in one thousand nine hundred five Mandarich was six six in nearly three hundred pounds he became a starter on the Spartans line. And as he continued to get stronger and faster he became progressively, more dominant and aggressive. Oh, and direct people on the punish and torture. I wanted to break their will. How good was he at Michigan state? Probably the most dominant offensive linemen that I've ever been around. Mandarich is body grew to unheard of proportions steroids were fueling all of it. And those closest to him such as his college girlfriend shar watts started to worry. I never actually saw him give himself an injection but I didn't know that he was doing it one time. He had gone in the bathroom to give himself an injection and he's he came back out. I said something to him about, you know what, what he was doing. And maybe it wasn't good for him. And he just put that evil grin on. And he said, I'm gonna live hard and die young. Did it ever cross your mind then you were doing something wrong? No. Because I think I was too young immature to think that way, I was in the state of mind of tunnel vision and seek and destroy, and you're creating a persona to as a side effect. That started to happen. Yeah, you're not supposed to be a strong as I am. You're not supposed to be as fast as I am. You're not supposed to be as good as I in his entire college career Mandaric says he was drug tested. Only three times once was at the end of his junior season just before the nineteen Eighty-eight Rose Bowl after the Spartans had defeated Indiana, to win the big ten men rich knew he would fail. So we substituted cleaner and for his own hiding the liquid in a rubber squeezy toy connected to a catheter attached to his back. I ran down my back taped it. You know. So the hose would move the little cather thing would move, and kinda ran it underneath your. Your backside and literally capped it with gum chewing. Go bubbalicious delicious to be specific cherry player. This was your plan. That was my sophisticated plan. So the whole time you're at Michigan state. You're on steroids protocol on and off. Yeah. Like sixteen twelve weeks on twelve exhau- for sixteen weeks on sixteen weeks off. What was the culture on the team around steroids? I think it was the worst kept secret in college football. You guys we're talking bad back in those days, like one hundred guys scholarship. I'd say about forty percent. Nickname, though the doctor. Yeah. I mean. Definitely wasn't studying medicine. Why were you the doctor? I think because we. By administered. The right. I, I did it the right way, will you injecting teammates? I would rather not answer that question to be honest with you, I you know, it's like plead, the fifth read between the lines my answer would be. I don't want to answer that question. No. You get it. You get it. I get you. And the coaches new that I don't know. I we never had a conversation about it. If the coaches didn't know is because they didn't want to know. I don't know. I don't know. That's something you'd have to ask coach at that time when he was a college player, no one ever really talked about steroids or anybody knew anything about it. So it was a little bit of an unknown whether was wasn't, but we had no knowledge you have any suspicions snow, and he was a good player. He's a hard worker he worked hard in the weight room. We remember thinking when you found out that's how he got. So big. I had no knowledge of any of that when I was coaching in college, or I don't think anybody in the organization ever did that I knew of after the nine hundred eighty nine gator, bowl Mandarich, quit school to start preparing the draft, which Los Angeles to train with Rory legal Meyer of former Mr. American Manders, little mayor. I got pushed harder than I ever thought I could be pushed physically for performance. I loved to lift, like I felt that home lifting. When I walk into weight room, I was going to own it. He's got his personal personal goals in Africa. Mike goals, and that's become mature three hundred and forty five on offense alignment. Mandarich declined to work at the NFL combine. Instead he worked out for pro scouts at Michigan state. He was literally off the charts running a four six five forty faster than hall of fame running back, Emmitt Smith, thirty nine bench press reps squatted, well over six hundred bench press over five hundred ESPN NFL draft expert. No Kuyper junior, Tony Mandarich was spec to plug and play left tackle immediately, be a star in play ten twelve fifteen years in the NFL, there was complete agreement the Tony Mandarich throughout the leg was going to be great player. April nineteen eighty nine with the draft approaching Mandarich is featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated. It elevates him from draft prospect to figure from theology. Sl dubbed him. The incredible bulk. Certainly, one of the three or four arguably the most famous cover ever. Yeah, the news Sports Illustrated was, I would say the authority by the time. The Sports Illustrated cover comes at you're not doing steroids anymore. Correct. You're clean. The decision was. It's not worth it anymore. There's more to lose than to gain because testing, I felt was just too hard to sophisticated and. I was done with it. Except I replaced it with something. I had been hearing a lot from training, so hard and I would take a painkiller, and I would take it like a normal person we take it as prescribed. And but I didn't I ran out. So Mandarich asked his trainer Rory legal Meyer. For more pills Lido Meyer, head a different idea. It was an injectable called state. All. Is that you know, we're going to do in your vein? And I said, whoa, I said, that's what drug addicts do. It was almost like, you know, trust me, and he had never done me wrong. And to this day he's never done me wrong. I made the decision. I don't blame him. What do you remember about the moment in which I hit your bloodstream felt phenomenal? The first time what felt good about it is, the pain was gone, or it was very much minimized. And but then I started to like the way it made me feel and that's your difference between an addict, someone that's not. Tony Mandarich became an addict he was twenty two no longer using steroids. But hooked on painkillers in the one thousand nine thousand nine NFL draft was rapidly approaching. How do you feel about going to Green Bay? At the time goes. Well, you know called Green Bay village. Did you really call it? Green Bay village. Yeah. Yeah. I did. Beat around the Bush and also you don't care what I don't want to go to Green Bay. And they the quarterback drafted the platform you were trying. It seemed your hardest. To be unlikable. It was coming that truly. The Packers invited Tony and his brother John to Green Bay for the draft. Former Packers president, Bob Harlan was set on taking Mandarich at number two. When you draft high. We've got to be pretty sure. And I think our staff was felt it was very sure that this was the right way to go. Tackle, Tony Mandarich Michigan state. Currently going to be one of those main cards, and that we'll get where we want to get for five years of being in this league. I want to be the best offense mean that was that was ever in this league. That's my goal. But succeeding on the field in Green Bay would be the least of the challenges, awaiting Mandarich. You've become this big celebrity drafted number two overall. But you are spiraling into a life of a diction. It was brutal. I mean for me to say it was brutal. It was freaking the brutal. It was the summer of nineteen eighty nine and Tony Mandarich had just been selected second overall by the Packers. You says he was no longer using steroids. But his addiction to painkillers had deepen. He was also holding out insisting he wouldn't sign with Green Bay for less than a million dollars a year. And they're telling me how all these players who aren't signed it or I can't. Well, I'm not like other players. I'm Tony Mandarich. And they have to understand that. And if they don't like it, that's you know, that's just the way I am. And they're gonna learn that you're gonna learn to like. That would never happen. In fact, Packer nation was already disgusted with him. Only start talking too big to quit hurt himself up here. We're probably Tom. Bodybuilder. Knew anything it will make them money notoriety. In training camp. The Packers did their best to ignore the absence of that three hundred pound distraction guys pretty much forgotten because we're all soon he's not going to be here. Anyway, talking about is he on this team right now during the holdout Mandarich had even been approached to fight for the world heavyweight championship against Mike Tyson. I wanna play. Geez. What kind of guy visit take the sit here and save that Tyson says he's willing, but warns Mandarich that he'll experience something that he's never experienced before you probably would hear some scope to saying, this is just to get more money on the Green Bay. That's a good ploy. It is. Isn't it? It started to get more serious in the media, and I think what happened was Green Bay was like we'd better sign him. If we want to sign him otherwise, he may take a year off or do this other thing. Finally just before the Packers first regular season game Mandarich agreed to a four year deal worth four point four million dollars. No offense of lineman had ever been paid so much. Perform, well, I just wanna fit in anybody else because I am just like anybody else after being drafted in one thousand nine hundred nine by the Packers Mandarich held out through training camp finally signing the richest contract ever to that point for an offensive lineman is Packer teammate quarterback Don. Mcaliskey described seeing Mandarich on the field for the first time he came into practice and he showed up on a practice field, finally after all is hold out, and he came in for a couple of days and just watch practices. The first day he put on pads and are dependent was Tim Harris. And when they got onto one on one pass drill contest. Timmy, really schooled him and really embarrassed. I just remembered just going through God to happen. And I was just thinking the United time, it's one of the big bus we put a million dollars in this guy, and you pay this guy, all this money, and I, I've been here for years. I'm all pro. I can't even get half half that contract. First time around will I want against them heroes. He's got some great moves. But definitely the speed is like definitely twice as fast as college defensive lineman. Packers president Bob Harlan was concerned. I remember after he'd been in camp, a few days, a couple of the scouts told me that he was having trouble in the one once and we're surprised me. I think a little bit surprising to the scouts at the time to some doubts been raced. I don't think there would have been resentment if there was production. Production. It was train wreck. Was it train wreck? It was the beginning of a train wreck. Just building up speed. When he was at Michigan state Mandarich had thrived as a run blocker. In the NFL. He's subpar pass blocking skills made him a liability. Might technique was. I'll had a lot to be desired. It was lacklustre. I'm not gonna say, well, I came from a system that ran the ball eighty percent of the time that's an excuse. By nineteen ninety and ninety one Mandarich would be starting at right tackle for the Packers. It'd become an average NFL lineman. But when he went up against the league's best pass rushers, it was usually a mismatch, when it was Reggie White, it was much worse than that. It'd be a nightmare for any offense lineman. But especially if you you've been struggling with your passport, text, and you're going against the best pass rusher ever. It was a nightmare. It was a nightmare. I gave up like three sacks five pressures. It was horrible. Now. And he was like he had that raspy deep voice, and he's like sun. God had nothing to do with it. And they'll say, yes service. Wait. Reggie club. Tony and threw him aside. Awfully easy for Reggie White played it over and over and something that, you know, another thing you do just seeing that all the time. Will you ever tempted to take steroids when you were in the NFL, despite the testing of her? Never because testing I felt it was just too hard. And coupled with the whole rumor mill of took steroids. One of the reasons he's not performing is because he stopped steroids. I know it'll be attached to my name the rest of my life. But I didn't want it. You know, even talked about. So I just didn't do what did you think it was going to happen to you without steroids? I lose like ten percent fifteen percent strength. He was just getting smaller and smaller as each month went by and everybody knew why that must have been tough on him as well. Manly. Oh, he's not playing well because of the steroids, always not as little too. They know I was taking forty fifty sixty painkillers day and drinking. I'd something in my system every day for, for Dan. Stern all state. All I just put it in my jockstrap halfway through practice. You know when we went to individual drill of something where you kind of get a little bit of arrest. I'd be like, well, I'm going to go to the bathroom now. So I don't have to miss my stuff in the drill, and I'd go in the bathroom, and draw that needle in my arm, put a bag and pass block. Tim harris. During practice. That's not good. That's not good. And that's and I'm not using that as an excuse for my play or for. I don't I don't need pity or sorry from anybody. I. And things did get better for a while. And then slowly pills started getting more. I Dr states, all surrounding Wisconsin, accumulating, five six, seven doctors get five six hundred seven hundred pills. And I'd still be running out and drinking more often. And when I say drinking, I don't mean falling down sloppy drunk. I just mean, drinking all day. I did not have a clear, head of clear is crystal clear is in Green Bay the four years, I was there. Mandarich would miss the entire nineteen Ninety-two season due to injury in the Packers had had enough after four disappointing seasons. They declined to resign him. No one else wanted him either. I just think it was a mistake that we made football, wise you take the second choice in the whole draft. And you, you expect you know, pro bowls all pro in a great selection, so there was disappointment there. What was it like knowing you were such a disappointment to the organization to the fans? Definitely, lean towards the I feel like I feel this big because I've lo lot of people down. But then that kind of turned into I flipped it internally to well, it's their fault. You know my attitude was like good because I don't wanna play for you guys. I didn't say that. But that was my attitude. Would I have made the same decision that they made? Absolutely I probably would have made it sooner now Sports Illustrated, which once called, Tony Mandarich. The incredible bulk on its cover was calling him the NFL's incredible busts at the end of your time and Green Bay. There's the other Sports Illustrated cover the big into your career. Yeah. And that's you know. The it hurt like hell. It's kind of like look. I was a bust in Green Bay. December nineteen Ninety-two after being let go by the Packers Bandrich went home to Canada to see his brother, John, who had been battling skin cancer for more than a year. He was at the point where like they gave him an unlimited morphine drip. And so then I was like, man. I love that some of that more. Vain. Steve that thought when you think about it is disgusting. What were you thinking? It's about me. Is not about you. Dying is getting high, and it's like that's pathetic. Six weeks later. Tony's brother John died. He was thirty one. To what extent were you emotionally present at his funeral? I mean yeah. I wasn't I wasn't. I was numb I took more medication to medicate to numb the pain. He's brother was gone. Tony Mandarich was now twenty six out of the NFL. Addicted to painkillers and alcohol. But his dorkiest days we're ahead of him. I was like, you know what you had a good run, actually, unfortunately, if you're living on borrowed time because you should be dead. June nineteen Ninety-three at the age of twenty six Toni may Andrej, the number two overall, pick in the NFL draft just four years earlier has been out of football for six months. He's living in traverse city Michigan. He says his life was fully consumed by painkillers and alcohol. For those years in traverse city like. They were. They were hell they were tough. They were tough because. Now you're not just unemployed, you're unemployable. You can't you don't have the ability to work, and I'm not just talking in the NFL. I'm talking. At a gas station. I'm not responsible enough to show up on time. That's how bad it was. I'm showering once a week because it's too much of an effort, shower. Little that two-thirds will be the bedroom. The fireplace that one third, it'll be about that summer in ESPN crew was filming with Mandarich as he was building a new home. Mandarich. Now admits he was high during the interview. I'm doing pretty good doing. All right. One day, the time you know, just at a at one time it was one hour at a time, but. With all the stress football and not living up to expectations and injury and death. You know, my family and brother. Just a lot, a lot of things happened at once or I should say in a small period of time. It's really, really messed me up to his college girlfriend shar watts Tony was unrecognizable. I knew him. And I knew that energy of his personality and the guy in that interview bore, no resemblance to the guy that I knew nobody can watch that interview and not go. There's something really wrong with that guy. When he was playing in Green Bay. Mandarich got married and had a daughter while the last name shall be. Be kind of father were you at this time. I love you so much. Functional Ali, we need talk on look, look and. Was I? A great father. No. I mean. I was I was checked out if that's probably the best. One of the better ways that describe it. I wasn't capable of being all there. Physically Mandarich was no longer the incredible bulk he shrunk down to two hundred and fifty five pounds. He was taking more than seventy painkillers a day. To what lengths would you go to get your fix addicted to pills? And he pretty much pretty much any legs. Out at the drop of had, I would drive fifteen hours, one way to pick up a prescription at a pharmacy in a different state, and the voice inside your head telling you European. You're worthless. You don't deserve anything. Why didn't you die? Good friend of mine, who was my workout partner at the time. He said, the same thing hundreds of people had said to me throughout the years. Except I was ready to hear it all he said, was if you don't change what you're doing. You're going to die. He's like, so, you know, do you. Why get sober do you want help? And I said, yeah, I do. I said, I want, I don't wanna feel the way I'm feeling right now. March twenty third nineteen ninety-five after six years of addiction to painkillers and alcohol Mandarich checked into a recovery clinic near Detroit. After seventeen days in rehab, Mandarich went home committed to sobriety. He started attending AM meetings, then he decided to return to the weight room, the place where he had created legend of Tony Mandarich. I started getting bigger stronger. And I knew steroids. We're not in the not going to be a part of the picture. They're not part of my sobriety. And. Six months sober. I was most importantly, sober. I was laughing and happy. In the fall of nineteen ninety-five four years after he last played it down in the NFL Mandarich contemplated the impossible a comeback. I you know, burnt all my bridges, I was thorough. Burn a few of them. Burnt them all. The NFL the fans your family all I needed was a chance. Eighteen ninety six it's been more than four years since he last played for the Packers. In now twenty nine year old Tony Mandarich is signed by the Indianapolis Colts for slightly more than the league minimum next role for me is not the Pro Bowl is not to start. It's to make the team. He was again, an imposing physical presence, having gained fifty pounds since leaving rehab he did it. He says without steroids. The coach gave him the chance same one he burned in Green Bay Lindy in Fontenay. You know, when we brought him in he looked better than he ever looked from me in Green Bay. And he was stronger than he was when Green Bay. And he started to look physically, like the guy that we thought we had drafted number one back, then I'm just happy to two of, you know, had a chance to come back and I'm not talking about football, you know, just football talking about, you know. You know realizing that, you know. There are happier things and bigger and better things. At that point, having not played in almost five years, you back in the NFL. It's it's a standing. How did you do it? That. That belief of the impossibility of sobriety made football a detail, and I don't want to minimize it, because it wasn't easy to come back and play. It really wasn't. It was hard. Step back on the field. For the first time. What sense of achievement? Did you have? I was like it was surreal. And it was very cool, because it was the first time I played a game without a drug in my body since high school. The quarterback. Indianapolis was Jim Harbaugh was impressed by the new Tony Mandarich. He was a good football player and most layers good. Dude, it was just good guy that was felt really good and happy to be there and lucky to be played. I rubbed off in a positive way. So was his old friend, Nick, save it surprise, whether he wanted to come back and prove that he could play cream which he did, former teammate, Don Macau, if you sit out for years as a as a professional athletes. I mean it's on. Nobody really ever comes back from that. By the end of nineteen ninety six season Mandarich was starting at right tackle after the following season, the cultural warded him with a new three year contract worth three million dollars. But then nineteen ninety eight Mandarich suffered a shoulder injury. He knew that keep playing. He might need painkillers. I was gonna make some figures next year and I thought somebody there ain't no amount of money in the world. You could pay me to go back to that hell of misery the way, I lived. And I said, thank you. But no, thank you. At thirty two Mandarich decided to walk away from the game. This time the decision was his. Tony main ridge came into the NFL is incredible bulk. He left as the incredible bust. Now fifty to clean and sober for twenty four years against all odds. He fashion the incredible comeback. Thirty years later. Would you want to say that kid on the cover of sl? Oh man. Lessons learned. And you're gonna learn the hard way. Listen, only by the grace of God of my here. Almost twenty four years. So we're. I mean that's a mirror. These days. Tony Mandarich makes his living as a photographer in Scottsdale, Arizona. He seems happier than he's ever been before. Thanks for having joined us.

Dp show mclovin. What kind of poll questions are you thinking today before i get to my big announcement okay. It's polarizing but. I think we need to get into it. Has this been a good or bad postseason for paul. George of the clippers okay. We'll get to that in a moment. What else okay. Who is the guy in this playoffs that you'd never heard of before that. Now you definitely know. I would have just nominate a couple clippers. Terrence mann sons campaign. Debunks bobby portis or john collins landed that people know atlanta. There are all these weird names that are emerging. Who's the is anybody's catching your fancy. As the star. I know you know these parents man has been interesting because you think of field of dreams. Who james earl jones's character and that's the only reason why like terrence mann and then that's a character from a movie. I one more quick. Nba one before you get to the announcement okay. Who has the most to add to their legacy in this nba playoffs. Is it. obviously. Chris paul or could you put jaanus or chris middleton on that list as well well. Jaanus is going to have time chris. Paul doesn't have time. This might be the last call for chris. Paul and i would say chris. Paul get to the finals and if you happen to win a championship that sort of legacy defining for chris paul because he's the most decorated player probably in the history of the nba. Who's never been to the nba finals. We'll settle on a poll question. The got play the day stat of the day and your phone calls are always welcome. I've been passionate about one person getting into the pro football hall of fame. I've been talking about. John and i never met john. Senate let me give you just a little taste of the voice of god. This is the. Nfl's voice john fa- santa just to give you an idea of what that sound was growing up with nfl films. How important it was to an entire generation. Here is the late john for center. The autumn wind is a pirate blustering in from c. With a rollicking song. He sweetens law swaggering boisterously. His face is weatherbeaten. He wears a hooded sash with a similar about his and bristling black staff. He grows as he storms the country of villain and the trees all shake and quiver and quake as he robs him their goals. The autumn win is a raider pillaging just for fun. He'll do around upside down and laugh when he's conquered and one so it was a while ago and i talked to make love about this. Actually i reached out to the pro football hall of fame because john percent is not in the pro. Football hall of fame. Baseball celebrates its voices. And i thought why doesn't the nfl celebrates voices or the voice of the nfl. He's a contributor and he should be in the pro football hall of fame. And i wrote a letter to david. Baker david is the president of the hall of fame and he was very nice very polite. A welcoming and i said look david. I don't know john percent. I never met him. I don't know his family. I just know what he meant to me. Growing up and david said a letter and then all pass it on yesterday. I get a phone call. And it's from the pro football hall of fame to tell us. John for sunday's going in he is the recipient of the pete rozelle radio television award and let me bring in david baker the president of the pro football hall of fame. First of all. David thank you for putting up with me and second of all. This is awesome. This is great news. It made my weekend. So thank you dan. You're easy to put up with because we love what you do and we appreciate all you've done for the game but this was kind of a unique experience because i remember when you called me first before you send me that letter and it was. It's a process much like all of our hall of famers but the people's l. award is really unique because it's about once in broadcasting football and johnson data as you know was not a broadcaster. He didn't broadcast game. She didn't you know he wasn't like one of the guys in the booths there but he was at nfl. Like you said referred to as the voice of god and for a whole generation of football fans. This guy is voice. That baritone is synonymous with strengthen cower. And the character of the nfl and he wrote this love the game. And it's fitting that in a year. That steve sable those in as a hall of famer to join his dad ed sable as all famer both will have bronze west there. That giant senda will receive the award for excellence in broadcasting. Thank you for for everything here. I like i said to you when i talked to. You and i wrote the letter. I never met him. I just know what he meant to me. And an entire generation and hopefully a new generation gets to experience. John fashanu but i want to thank the pro football hall of fame and certainly you david for entertaining this idea. They i promise you dan. We're going to keep his legacy alive now forever. That's what we do as a brooklyn ball but What's pretty cool and this is a real compliment to you. And i'm sure your listeners know it but when you call me. You're calling me as dan patrick celebrity. You're calling as fan now. You love the game. You loved what this guy had done and for so many of us on saturdays you know it was being in front of the tv set to watch nfl football follies. Or you know. The mythical thing that steve sable we've together johnson would narrate. And when you should your letter which was was well done and went onto our committee of selectors For this a pe- brazil award you know. He kind of opened the door to people saying. Yeah this is somebody who should be recognized as somebody who for not only for this generation of fans probably for generations to come because things like you just played for the autumn wind You know i it it It is synonymous with an nfl and this year he'll go in As the recipient of the pete rozelle award We actually have what we think is going to be the greatest gathering in football ever. This guy take place in canton to kick off one hundred check and she's at the nfl as we have really two glasses with the pandemic. Having a chance with last year's enshrinement we will have this. Incredible centennial clash. That will Shallow great the hundred year. The nfl where we were having twenty hall of famers for twenty twenty and now we have the class of twenty twenty one so we have the unique situation of having to people's out recipients. That'll be honored. Joe buck for twenty twenty. He was actually honored in the middle of the game. From cleveland At halftime that's when he was informed. And because john is no longer around his son jack will achieve the award on august ship stuff. The goal jacket Presentation but we thought it appropriate since you put into nomination that we call you and give you the good news. David i look forward to it and thank you again. We appreciate everything. The pro football hall of famous done. Thank you for the game. That is david baker. The is the president ceo of the pro football hall of fame. Nice where. I got that call late yesterday afternoon. And it was a cleveland area. Code and i go. Who's calling me from cleveland. I got friends there. My sister lives there. And i'm going. I don't know who this is. Pick up when we go. Yep he said Hey such and such pro football fame. And i go. I can't go in and said we know you're not going in. I said a goes. John for sunday is what say john. Ferguson is going to go into the pro football hall of fame. So i take no credit for it other than just to open their eyes to enter ears to somebody who that was a big deal. Nfl films was huge. I and i. I fought long and hard behind the scenes for steve sable. You know ed. Sable i mean they what they did for the game. You can make a case not that anybody's going to an argument. They were as instrumental as anybody in the history of the sport in growing it. When you when you talk about contributions that's a contribution and john for sunday was a newsman in philadelphia wasn't even a sports guy but he had that voice and how they created. Nfl films in those features was was really instrumental in in my love of the game or growing to love the game even more so john is going into the hall of fame and thank you again to the pro football hall of fame for listening to me. They probably thought. Here's the dan. Patrick guy again. Yes first of all good job but secondly i think you brought this up. Maybe a little over a year ago. I can't remember when the date but we were all surprised that he wasn't in. Because if you're i think Forty plus you. Kind of assume johnson is one of the blocks of the building of the nfl and we grow. I used to watch these tapes. Vhs tapes and his voice was on it. I know him so. I think it's one of those things it's almost like. It's almost like what you did was like the veterans committee. Where they you saw an oversight that maybe no one really thought about but when people move onto more modern broadcasters and they probably forgot about some of the older ones but also he didn't do play by play and he wasn't a studio host. he was just an announcer. He was just a voice. And i think that was the hard part that i was trying to push through that or knock it down with. Just you know what. What is the true football broadcaster. And i said he doesn't do play by play and he's not a studio host. He just is the voice of the nfl. And that's to me worthy enough to be in the pro football hall of fame. Yeah mclovin. I love the irony too that you tried out for the great part of battle when when john passed away and i did a feature at nfl films when i was at cnn back in the mid eighties. And i thought while. I'm here i should probably let them hear this voice and i went into a recording studio at nfl films. Probably the same recording studio that john fashanu is in and i gave a read but i gave a read. Is john senda. I didn't do it in just my normal voice. I went down like this. The silver and black clad masters of intimidation nearly took joe. Thank president i think they were just being polite. They're like okay. All right i said well you know let me know. I said it'd be hard for me to come all the way down here to. Nfl films but you know. let me know. i think. I got a shot here. I'm still waiting to hear back from. Nfl films by heard back from the pro football hall of fame. That's awesome and mclovin. Thank you as well because we were bouncing ideas. I just said i got a craft. Something that is going to sound and look professional and that you know my passion as a football fan as a kid is going to be incorporated in this in and you were very instrumental in helping me without either. Appreciate that film philadelphia company. It was a big deal. They used to have assemblies where they would bring you into the auditorium to watch nineteen eighty-four eagles highlight film the despite the four eleven record good for gangrene or whatever. Yeah might've been four and twelve not four and eleven. When i was a kid there were fourteen. Know i used to love. Nfl films in the eighties used to do a team like a yearbook video. You could order. I think if you bought sports illustrated they'd send you a copy and if your team sucked the chicago bears building for the future. Our five and eleven. This program brought to you by simply safe. They make you safe home. They've been doing so over the last fifteen years. Simply safe and go to simplisafedan dot com today customize years home system and get a free security camera in the process. We'll hit the reset button. Couldn't wait for this.

Thanks again to the pro football hall of fame for least letting me have a platform to talk about john. Send who will go into the pro football hall of fame. We'll get phone calls coming up. Eight seven seven three. Dp show. we always do every monday. Best and worst of the weekend. There's an expression in basketball that shooters shoot and in the first two games of the eastern conference finals. The bucks khris middleton didn't live up to his regular season form. He was twelve thirty six from the floor. He had scored a combined. Thirty points in the first two games. Not what you expect out of an all star but he stayed aggressive last night and he kept shooting at fifteen twenty six. He scored thirty eight. He scored twenty in the fourth quarter and he always reminds you how good he can be two time all star and he's going to play on the olympic team hawks. They played tough. They ran out of steam trae young twisted his ankle on the second. Half but middleton shooting was big janas played. Well bobby portis played well. You got big contributions off the bench but the you know teams need a closer in the playoffs in his strangest this is going to sound. Chris middleton to me is more of a closer than the greek freak is. Greek freak is a better player. But as i've been saying a couple of times during the postseason. If chris middleton plays well the bucks win and if you watch. Chris middleton he doesn't think he is the second fiddle here he has that mentality and he should have that mentality. You're not going to be famous. You're going to be dwarfed by the greek freak but you have a chance to make a name for yourself and by doing this and then doing it on a bigger stage in the nba finals. That's where you make a name for yourself and that'll be coming out party possibly for chris. Middleton we've talked about some of these players with trae young with chris. Paul almost fifteen eighteen years where you become an overnight sensation but chris middleton what he did that. That's a big moment here. Now look for the atlanta hawks. They're not a great team and that they've gotten this far as miraculous because they don't have like that's an injury plagued team and trae young twisting his ankle and they may limp home but though limp home with pride and they should. But the milwaukee bucks i thought at the beginning of the year or beginning of the postseason. The healthiest team was going to win the nba championship. And that might be the milwaukee bucks but man is this like there is this is fraught with tension and the what ifs if kevin durant hits a three instead of a two. Then it's over like mike. Budenholzer probably loses his job as the head coach of the box. If kawhi leonard doesn't get injured are we looking at a different story out west. Anthony davis doesn't get injured. I mean there's there's so much that's gone on with these playoffs here but it might be. The healthiest team is going to win the championship. And that team right now. It's the milwaukee bucks right. Some phone calls here. let's see patton pennsylvania. Hey pat what's on your mind today and I guess i have to thank you for the philadelphia fans from south jersey. I'm sixty three. Go up with john. Percents so that was really crazy oversight. You got tears in my eyes. This morning driven pass. Nfl films many times and a lot of championships. But we've got another guy to the hall of fame. Thank you pat. And i'm sure that he meant to you what he meant to me. Since we're similar age. Terry new york terry. What's on your mind. Dan how you doing today. Good sir. I was calling the state man. Would we love in new york man. I'm so glad you did that. For john persson demand. You push that along that you styles your for me here workman it just you. You're bringing back memories. I'm telling you when i heard john. Then spam spent. When rondo comes on man i usa slim a little brother and the on the ground to this day. I still grow here. Rondo we're almost fifty. I just that. That's all round up. Man sam spence and when you've never eaten a game fantastic de we love you man. Thanks for doing. Thank you terry tom in florida. Hey tom what's on your mind today. Dan good morning a pleasure to talk to you. I grew up in philadelphia and there are a lot of great voices Marine reads and tnt hard and different all different sports but there was no one like johnson. Santa no one he was. Wc a you kept us up the eleven o'clock news and everything was gonna be alright and he always closed with a nice night tonight and a good day tomorrow. I wish the same to everyone in the dan nation. Thank you tom. Thank you the it was emotional for me. But you know the things that happen when you're growing up when you're younger and we didn't have every game but you got to see these highlights and what the sables did and i had. I got to spend time with steve sable not his father. But steve and i always enjoyed steve and he talked to me about he wanted to be a host. He wanted to be on tv. He wanted to be more than just. Hey my dad started. Nfl films and and we would talk about that. And i was relatively new in the business. When i was at cnn. And whenever we saw each other was always pleasantries. And i always enjoyed what he was. I mean he was on a whole different level than i was. But you know. John percentage should be there with the sables in the pro football hall of fame. And i'm sure it's going to be emotional for a lot of people because what john meant to you. He was just a voice he was not a face it was a name but really just a voice and i think that's the magic of it as we grew up in an era like that where the voice was so important. I didn't have to see you. I just had to hear you. And that's where we were. Lucky with chick. Hearn vin scully and johnny most with the celtics. And i mean there's so many so many broadcasters it would just so important to me because that voice that that voice meant something. The time of the year there is drama there that there was humor in there but with john percents That's the voice of god. And how can you have a pro football hall of fame and not have the voice of god in there. Yes a couple of calls ago. The caller said joppa senate used to do the weekend. Wrap up of football with this song. Called roundup underneath the highlights. Here's a sound darrelle. The monarch the mad bomber to cliff branch and that was the end of the washington redskins silver and black man awesome. It's great way to end a weekend. Started week rob new orleans say rom. What's on your mind today. What up dp to hear your voice today and and very proud of what you did John was the voice of my childhood and one particular thing. And it was about the raiders. I think it was the year that they'd be the vikings in the super bowl and the film came out afterwards and john starts off and he says great teams on old ways. Great they just great when they have to be. And whenever i think of the nfl. That's what i think of so thank you man. Thank you for doing that. That that's a beautiful thing. Thank you rob pretty impersonation a little better than i did their best to the weekend. We'll get to your phone calls coming up mclovin. What poll question. We're going to go ahead and put up going from a great announcement. Something completely patty but has paul george. Good postseason actually. It's fifty fifty. People can't decide. I think he's done. He's sort of carried this team to some extent even though he can't hit the side of a barn sometimes without him. They're just. They're sort of a bunch of no names. The clippers are all for twelve in the fourth quarter on shots. That could have tied the game or taken the lead. That's the most attemts without a make in the fourth quarter of game over the last twenty five years you're looking for a clutch gene with somebody here and with without kawhi there. I mean paul george. It's his team and he does have to take all of these shots. He's taking shots more shots than he would normally take. And would you like a little bit. Higher percentage yes. You would but it's not going to be there but i i'm going to give him credit here because he is out there and they're still alive and you know obviously a big game coming up tonight with game five. Do i expect the clippers to win this series. I do not. I think the bigger picture moving forward here is who are the clippers. Moving forward is always going to have this knee injury. An answer is yes now what you do. How do you build around coli. Leonard and orders. Leonard go someplace else. I think really the the future. The identity of the clippers is is. What's on the line for me. Who stays who goes. I think thai lewis done a wonderful job as their head coach and the adjustments that he's made the they have role players. There you thought you were going to have kawhi paul george now. You have paul george. And i don't know what kind of accommodations can you make for quite leonard. The inner circle says he's high maintenance like those who know the situation will tell you with kawhi. There's high maintenance things that you need to like tom brady. The quite doesn't have the resume. The tom brady. Brady's considered high maintenance one of the reasons. Why the raiders. Didn't want to bring in tom brady because when you bring in tom you bring in his trainer. He's got to be on the field going to be on the plane. There's other things like you. You turned the franchise over to tom. Brady tampa was willing to do that. The raiders reportedly. Were not the lakers. Did that with lebron james. But i think that's the interesting part here. And here's the other thing to keep an eye on. The clippers have played seventeen games in the last thirty six days. Seventeen in the last thirty. Six fatigue is playing a role. If you're shooting thirty. Two percent from the floor and sixteen percent from three point. Range is not going to get any better. Fatigue is certainly instinct. Yep on saturday into the clippers are at home. The son shot thirty six percent from the field. The sons were four of twenty from three. That's an opportunity but the were thirty percent from the field. Five of thirty one from three sixteen percent twenty one thirty two. From the free throw line sixty five percent phoenix. Shooting thirty. six percent is the worst field. Goal percentage by any winning team since twenty fifteen stat of the day. The day that passed out of the days stat of the day here comes that what stat of the Nothing wrong with winning ugly. You just win. And they're going to be times where. It's not pretty and that game on saturday night. That's the lowest scoring game this season in the nba regular season and postseason lowest. You have your opportunity devon booker trying to get adjusted to the mass. Chris paul is coming back. You got to win that game. If you're the clippers got to win that game macleod. Have we seen enough deondraye. Eight to make this poll question if you could redo the two thousand eighteen nba draft. Who would you take number. One eytan luka doncic or trey young or is eight and still not quite there no. He's not there yet but i do love what i hear from him and i love what his teammates say about him. I want you to be great. I want you to want to be great. I want you to listen to chris paul. I want you to understand your role with kevin booker. He's really good and it feels like he's getting better and better and more confident. But i would still take luca you know. Here's a strange thing about trae young and you'll probably not hear this from many people. I would much rather have trae young shoot threes. Then i would let him dribble and get in the lane. Get those floaters get you in foul trouble. I if i'm guarding him. I guys i let him shoot his three now. I don't let him do what happened the other night where he's like all alone he does his little shimmy but i would let him shoot those threes i. I'm not letting him get in the lane because when he gets into the lane he gets fouled and he makes his free throws. You want to shoot the three. Go ahead shoot to three. I'd rather i'll live and die by that. If if milwaukee trae young then i would allowing him get into lane yes polling i. I'm watching chris. paul. And i'm like ten years in the not figure out how he scores points. He kind of meanders to the lane. He's not the quickest guy but he kind of floats into the lane and just find that spot and he hits that little jumper where his feet or about an inch off the ground. He's got a normal release. I think the guy six foot tall taller six one day. Allow him to have that. Hey you're not getting to the hoop and you're not shooting a three in forget about that mid range jumper. He just kinda floats in. Then he cuts writer left and avoid that six nine dude and he gets off a shot and it's fascinating because he he knows where he's going but he's not doing it quickly. Yeah he's you know part of this is you have almost this scientific approach like you have to know where you can go. And he's finds a spot. You find soft spots if you look. I guess the analogy would be you know. Julian edelman knows where he can go. He knows where to go in. And you know he's going to be open. Larry fitzgerald like you just know i can go there. I can get that. That's always going to be there. Hey we don't want you to beat us deep you know. We don't want you crossing over the middle but you find those soft areas and durant has made a career out of this as well and chris paul now. I don't know if you have younger. Players who are younger players are coming up. They wanna shoot the three. But there's always going to be room for that mid range jumper because they've allowed you they'll give that to you like go ahead take that we don't want you john fouls go into the hoop and we don't want you to burn shooting threes. You want the 15-footer go-ahead taken to your heart's content Market ohio then. We'll take a break. We'll get more phone calls. Adp doing buddy sir. Hey i just want to say thanks again for percent in the hall of fame. I'm gonna how guy from southeast ohio means a lot growing up the senator was always in your head. We played in the backyard with the boys. You always had that song in your mind. You always had his. And that was a big catalyst two young kid playing football and going on to play high school ball as well so i wanted to say thank you for. That means lot. Thank you mark and again. Thanks the pro football hall of fame. I was just speaking as a fan. And i didn't want to come in there and hey i'm dan patrick and i want you to listen to me. It was just. I got a hold of david baker and said look. This is as a fan as a kid growing up in mason ohio. This is an injustice. He should be in the pro football hall of fame. and david. i think hadn't thought of it. And i think because he's not a broadcaster and i and i was worried that we had missed the window of opportunity. You know john died in the eighties. And i think when. I started to look at the pete rozelle award that went to broadcasters and contributors and i thought and i said to pollick. John has got to be like wait. Where's the on. The list and paulie goes. He's not in. And i said well we're gonna change that but look all i did was have an opportunity and i spoke as a fan so for all of you out there. I spoke for you. Because i i mean.

Pippen will join us a lot. To unpack scottie pippen. I still maintain the media. Missed the real story in all of this. I don't care what he says about. Kevin durant and i think there were some things that he said that i agreed with about kevin durant but my problem was what he said about phil jackson without using fills name saying that when phil took him out of well. He took himself out of the lineup. When filled decided toni kukoc was gonna take the last shot of a playoff game against the knicks and he felt that he was propping up coup coach and that it was racist and at the beginning of the quote and he says you know you gotta read between the fine lines here and then he to me was accusing phil jackson of being racist and this being a written interview and g. q. I just want to know the context of it and go. I said fritzy. Look just tell scotty. P wants to promote his bourbon. He can promote his bourbon. Whatever else he wants. Talk about. But i just wanna ask him about. What are you saying about phil. Jackson are there other incidents there. Because you're saying that one moment there where you misquoted taken out of context. Do you know that you're calling phil jackson a racist that he's taking you out of the final play you decide to sit down and here's another thing sometimes. What happens when you criticize somebody and in this happens to charles barkley a lot beyond that that the always the comeback is. Hey will you never wanna championship. See you're not really talking about what he might be. Criticizing you for. Hey you never one okay. You get personal and scotty is criticizing kevin durant for not being a team player. He's saying he doesn't make his teammates. Better well durant brought up scotties. Worst moment when scotty took himself out of a playoff game and sat down on the bench which okay. It's not apples to apples. He's he's saying. He didn't make his teammates better. Okay there's some validity to that now what. I think that kevin durant was herculean in the playoffs. But scotty saying you don't make others and he's saying lebron makes others better okay. That's his opinion. Durant doesn't acknowledge that he says. Oh this coming from the ultimate team player. Basically took himself out of a game. You're not really addressing what he's talking about there so i'll give scotty the platform here a little more than an hour from now and we'll see what kind of context all of these comments came from. I hope he's not just here to talk about bourbon. Another one of those. Yeah i. I can't do that with matt. Harvey ham only here to talk about qualcomm. You have to ask every question in a bourbon related way like when you're sitting there having a bourbon with phil jackson discuss when he together Dan all inter all those questions at the appropriate time but right now today's obviously about honoring and supporting about. Yeah of course possibly get any kind of advice that would say. Hey you're going to be on some national shows here and people are going to ask you questions but you know if you can sneak in qualcomm and you know. That's oh so matt harvey. The was the mets pitcher. So you're in the you know the media capital of the world and here he is you know coming on the show and he he just wanted to talk about qualcomm. I don't know what it is. I is a telecommunications. All i know is didn't they come out didn't call come come out with something. That almost page honor d- don't they have a phone called honor yes right. I don't really. I think qualcomm came. This is what it sounded like. You know we have a slight tear and the ucla and You know. I got a second opinion with with dr andrew's and and You know he said my. My elbow was was stable. Doing going through all of these tests and You know we chose to go the Route of rehabbing. And you know. I strongly believe that that's going to work and pay off but You know today. We're i'm here You know talking about call. Calm and You know hoping. I can help them out as much as possible. Well let you get the pitch in their no pun intended in a moment. I wanna talk a little bit more about this when when you hear tommy john surgery. What does that mean to you as a pitcher. You know. I think i didn't. I did all those answers yesterday. And and you know maybe at the appropriate time we can talk a little bit more about that but Obviously you know today's about qualcomm. Your you know this whole rehab. And tommy john i i will i mean i we can set up another call if you talk to you about that subject but Today obviously so they were we're honoring and supporting alcon. Honor obviously honoring. Obviously as patrick come on come on you talking here. I'm the new guy. That's you know how this works. I'm here to just honor qualcomm. We could set up another call now like what does that mean like privately or something. Every time i listened to it there's another line that stands out to me is the funniest part of it and we set up another call. Yes and of all the markets. You're not in the middle of nowhere like or cancer. Possibly think you playing in the york going to do infomercial for qualcomm. Yeah the dark knight. Yes i wish could see the firestorm that created because ten minutes after the interview. Pr people from qualcomm people from the pr company. That set it up. They're calling in apologizing like we had met the sheet. He went up. He's on his way to a doctor's appointment. As i call you guys first time you've done this and i'm hearing this and i making eye contact with todd. And then look fritzy does what he always does and and he had nothing to do with this. You know he's always he gives you more information if somebody's calling in. Hey you know. Dan ball he'll get to the topic and want to talk about your sponsor. Whatever it is always give you time. And i start to. Here's you know. Maybe i answered all those questions yesterday. And i'm looking over todd looking back at me. I'm looking to see if there's a trap dog to the table could just kinda fell some tube and thought okay. This is live. Can't i can't escape. But when he said you know. I'm here to honor and then i think we were on. He had him. He came on like a day later. Two days later polling his pr people like fixed. Well haven't call back tomorrow. That's always fixing like any other way. I'm like what do you got a bag. Full qualcomm. what don't we do. I've never cross paths with matt harvey. We were hoping he would be a hall of famer so we could have on years later to put a on. He did come back on and he could say. I'm only here to talk about the hall of fame. And i would have been fine with that. It's just. I'm here to honor qualcomm. Obviously like what kind of pr company says. Hey you gotta make sure you're going to answer all these questions and then you get the pitch for qualcomm and you'll probably get sixty seconds. Yes time it's just beyond me how you think that you'd be doing an interview with them and only talk about. How could that possibly be. Thank you scotty.

August 9th: Rob White HR 1

"This is mornings with kale in northern colorado's voice. Thirteen ten kfi k. A. on question and one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game received his well-deserved place in history on sunday. Night to six. You know who. I'm talking about six ten now. Northern colorado's voice one thirteen ten. Kfi mornings with gail from the auto collision specialist studios. Yeah but it was the comments of former bronco's quarterback peyton manning and The at the twenty twenty one pro football hall of fame induction ceremonies and indeed. It was an emotional night For peyton manning as he was inducted into the pro football hall of fame class of twenty twenty one in canton ohio Sunday night along with the john lynch steve atwater was inducted into the class of twenty twenty Saturday night preceding last night's event but peyton manning a champion through and through. He accepted that honor in his signature. Style with grace elegance and class. Oh yes and a little bit of humor but it was like i said it was his comments. That had broncos country buzzing sunday evening ryan. Do we have that. But trust me. They are heartfelt now as they were then to my wife. Ashley there are no right words to express how grateful i am for you. Thank you for your unstoppable love and support and to our children boschman moseley. You came into the world at the time that i needed you. Most the two of you have already given your mother and me a greater inherits that we could ever leave you if football has become my home. The people of the great states of louisiana tennessee indiana and colorado have become my extended family. And is everyone knows. You can never really leave family behind. I never expected to stand on this stage tonight. If it weren't for those bust and the memories of forever loyal fans tonight's details blurb and cheers would fade however our hearts will cradle the memories forever throughout our lives players coaching staff and fans. We've become essential to the sports landscape. I don't know about you. But i'm not done with this game. I never will be. I'm committed to ensuring its future. And i hope you will join me in that commitment. Oh hope springs. Eternal rights broncos country. Now he did not elaborate on what he meant exactly when he said. I don't know about you. But i'm not done with this game. I never will be. I'm committed to insurance ensuring its future. But i have to wonder a so many you dead. Could this be the opening. Could this be the gateway. Perhaps to a place for him At the top of the heap in the broncos organization or am i reading too much into your thoughts this morning. Nine seven out of three five three thirteen ten. You can drop me taxed on our at thirteen tan that k. f. a text line but it was during his nine minutes speech and of course in signature. Peyton manning style. He was bouncing. Cooley from the funny to the poignant to the dry to the emotional well when he talked about his dad archie. I'll let you listen in my youth in new orleans and a new med school but ball carved out a place for my favorite quarterback. He wrote my role model. My dad archie manning to pass on something he loved. It's all about family extended family gratefulness. An attitude of gratitude which was clearly on display during his nine minute speech as he was inducted into the pro football hall of fame but he also talked about the importance of keeping the absence of football alive. We've inherited the history of this. Sport even helped create it but our responsibility cannot stop there. If we simply relive history and don't ignite the future of the sport then we're not doing football justice powerful words from equally powerful participant in the sport. Possibly one of the greatest of all time. Now we're going to take possibly out of that equation now peyton manning. Number eighteen was the third in duct deed. Speak but again as i mentioned earlier. Yes it was poignant. It was emotionally laden fate. Manning likes to play to any razzed. Some of his hall of fame peers and old rivals. One more time by the by the time. Tom brady's is inducted in his first year of eligibility in the year. Two thousand thirty five. He'll only have time to post his acceptance speech on his instagram account. Done like nobody else. Peyton manning inducted in the class of twenty one pro football hall of fame sunday night. Did you happen to watch it. It was powerful. It was positive it was uplifting. I can't think of enough superlatives to describe it. What was your gut reaction to peyton. Manning's acceptance speech nine seven three five three thirteen ten grumpy text on our thirteen ten. Kfi a text line by the way. If you're new to are texting family of got a new number for you. I use this number nine seven four seven eight thirteen one just text. Kpfk a to said number nine seven four seven eight thirteen one and we're not going to try and sell you anything. We just want to hear from you and expand the conversation because well talk radio town hall of the airwaves so don't be reluctant all comers welcomed and basically we learn a lot more from those who disagree with us than those who agree with us right. Hasn't that been your experience so cancelled culture. Here go ahead and just fire those texts off with wild abandon. Well like as good friend paint manning. John lynch use the platform of his hall of fame induction speech to send a message. That was even bigger than the greatest individual honor now. Here's what lynch had to say. I want to state the national. Football league is the greatest metaphor for life that he's ever known that i've ever known said lynch it challenges each and every one of us who plays this great game in every way possible. Everything about the game is hard and tests your will. It compels every man who puts on uniform to not only do their best but to be their their best. Are you seeing some commonalities. Here's some similarities. As yes football obviously one of the greatest metaphors for life and living lynch went on to say and football we quickly discover. We're only strong as our weakest link. And if we're here to achieve the goals that we set for itself we must all learn to play together and pool together to rewards never spoken particularly in a time of such divisions such unrest across the nation. But lynch wasn't done he said each of us comes and he's referring to football here but again i think he is referring to the human experience. Each of us comes from a different walk of life but when we huddle up we huddle up as a team substitute nation. It doesn't matter where we come from or your background. All that matters is the fulfilment of one goal. Victory continued links tonight. I advocate we take the lead of football and huddle up ask people as a great nation. Let's find common ground for our shared values. let's celebrate and learn from our differences true more powerful words. perhaps well not spoken recently. John lynch managed an amazing summary. Not only when it comes to the game of football but indeed the game of life six eighteen now. Thirteen ten k of k thirteen ten k. f. a. dot com this time check sponsored by candlelight.

Listen to no co- now with tanner's swint a northern colorado's voice thirteen ten. Kfi everything need to know about northern. Colorado is unknown code. Now weekdays at nine northern colorado's voice one over three point one and thirteen ten k. Bank i thought well we're feeling that banning john lynch and steve atwater inducted into the pro football hall of fame respectively plastic of Twenty twenty one and twenty. Twenty steve atwater. Of course that was put on hold but certainly something to celebrate right six twenty eight now one. Oh three point. One thirteen ten. Kfi northern colorado's voice mornings with gail via the auto collision specialists studios. And yeah. Well see that water when he was inducted or on saturday night managed to get in numerous. Thank yous to a whole lot of people. Don't you find that to be kind of the signature. Thread that Bonds all of the inductees together as that well again not to lapse into cliche. But it's been said there's no telling how far you can go as long as you're willing to give away. The credit and others who were inducted into the hall of fame did just that. Well steve atwater saved his most poignant heartfelt thanks for his parents now at waters eight minute forty five seconds speech again. They were limited to eight minutes and most of them did pretty. Well think about just the difficulty of trying to encapsulate a tremendous career into eight minutes. Well any of them managed to do just that but at waters eight minutes forty five seconds speech credited his late mon- jesse and his father jeff for setting him up for a hall of fame career but he didn't stop there at water gave a shout out to his former bronco's teammates in attendance according to a piece by kyle newman out of the post which included elway davis and carl mecklenburg. Also his numerous coaches. he called late. longtime owner. pat bowlen a quote phenomena leader. Close quote indeed. He was and also singled out longtime head trainer. Steve greek and to alous who retired this year after nearly a half century With the broncos atwater the smiling assassin as he is also known said to greek. Congratulations to you. A remarkable forty five years with the broncos. Thank you for everything. But i think the tie that binds here when you look at the success of these individuals is determination grit to nasty sure. God given talent but also confidence. Have you ever had the experience where that well that negative committee inside your head just won't zip it. Is it time to tell that negative committee your head to just sit down and shut up. How do you silence the inner credit credit for good well. We're going to talk with. Rob whites and accomplished entrepreneur. Is enough for me to say on a monday morning and author of the new book. He's actually authored five books his newest the maestro monologue positive self talk. Rod joins us this morning at six thirty five six thirty one now. Thirteen ten k. app. Kfi here mornings with gail weekdays. Six to nine in northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. Joined clark johnson and bruce tick for clark coach weekdays at eleven and northern colorado's voice. One zero three point one and thirteen ten. Kfi of k. As we listen to the words of john lynch and a standard atwater as they were inducted into the pro football hall of fame and can't over the weekend we drew some commonalities some similarities from their acceptance speeches running about eight or nine minutes. Can you imagine trying to encapsulate a career of the magnitude that they had in just eight or nine minutes but somehow they managed to do just that my takeaways be interested in your thoughts this morning but mine were these distinct strong messages of inner strength. A whole lot of gratitude for the help of others tenacity discipline the equation all adding up to success. But it begs the question this morning is your inner critic holding you back. Six forty now. Northern colorado's voice one or three one thirteen ten. Kfi mornings gail from the auto collision specialists studios joined this morning by robb white. Rob is an accomplished entrepreneur author of his newest book. He actually has five to his credit now. Newest book is the maestro monologue. And he's got some pretty inspirational tips to boot once and for all those negative thoughts living rent free in your head. Hey rob thanks for taking the time. Well hello gale. I love that. I love your introduction and i wish i listened to those three fellows prior to me. I think that they were right on. Target with what i Talk about when i talk about. Galas is the to. South is tool of us We have the power of self examination to things we have that allow us to be incredibly creative and powerful is the power of languaging and the power of self examination with the power of self examination. We can't objectively look at the subjective self and we'll find out there's two of us this the authentic us the one that naturally is curious courageous spontaneous joy from children. You see it in them all the time and then there's the other self the intruder the fault self the faker the one that has convinced us and the world that it is. The one that has convinced me that i am me. This one was born at age. Two when along came the knows the terrible a terrible for the child before that the child is absolutely enthusiastic. Ready to go loves. Life would imagine what you do between age one and five walking talking reading writing a swimming fundamental life skills all are only possible because they are being you being your sent itself natural life skills. Don't i'd even available when you are the other self. It ends when the intruder takes over everything changes so my book is about helping you. To first of all by the power of languaging we will born into a conversation. I was born into a conversation on the On the on the poor side of a small mill town and i learned that life is tough. There's not enough. I bought into it. I my parents bought into it from their parents. And i thought that's who i was someone who is lacking in limiting trying to get by. I didn't realize that was the other south that had taken control of my life. My mind my attitude my mood so what you're talking about. Even with those three fellows what they were able to do in the arena of sports. Step up take a look at that other self and call an md. That's what i call it in my book. A marvelous denial on the lies. That it tells you about yourself and love that rob. Thank you denial. Because you know it's funny. I remember being taught many moons ago and this is not exactly on topic. But i think it's a common thread. Is that by the age of ten. You are who you are going to be and to hear you talk about the terrible twos and sure i mean we need to learn. I'm not gonna say some limits vote. We need to learn how to exist and not be like my two year old puppy. Who's in the throes of the terrible twos right now. But it's fascinating how self limiting those restrictions can be and how impactful they can be on our future ahead or you know you narrow it. Would that win. The nose come in psychologist. Some showers psychologists say you hear sixty thousand knows by age eleven. That's why by then you have created a limited self. It's an assumption of identity. It's not you but as convinced you it's you and then you go out in the world and convince the world that you and the well being a mirror gail the memorial is always only a mirror reflecting back to you what you are projecting. What do they give you exactly what you need to say. See i told you. I told you. I'm limited see. I told you. I'm lacking see giving those feelings of inadequacy and unworthiness. So and the good news is the authentic self. The maestro that that is there that is willing to conduct your life and orchestrate. Your many destinies is always available. And my book is about helping you to see you. Must i look at what isn't working. You can't deny its there. If you deny you empower it you can't try to smear grape jam over with positive affirmations positive affirmations assembly platitudes that reinforce it you must be willing to look right at it. You must be willing to call it out for the liar that it is. You must be willing to look at. What's underneath it. Which is that authentic. You incredible a possibility for infinite possibilities. That's when life begins to really open up for folks in you. So that's what my books about. I love what you programs about. And i love the suic- album and you know this covert times. Unfortunately it's called out the other self the intruder the fake self. The great pretender social media is getting very much overwhelmed by wall is me it seems to be in to speak in terms of what on earth flow is doing this to me which only reinforces the wall. That's why in my opinion. My humble opinion covert has the power. It's gained in our bodies because of the power it has in our minds. Because you know it all gets down to fear anxiety and stress and really how all of that gangs up and affects our immune system my my grandfather at age ninety seven. Says i'm not gonna get over. And if i do get it i'm not going to know i got it. I can tell you for damn sure. I'm not gonna die from it now. I can promise you if he gets it. He's not gonna know we got it and he's not gonna die from it. His consciousness is such that that that energy can't exist and thrive in his body. I mean that is we have to get most of us right now a coming from fear degrade intruder the break. Pretender that gloves that energy it gobbles it up. It takes over your life it. Has you wear wearing out. Pour me and that intruder has no intention of giving up its thrives on pour me it's thrives on whaling knows from wrong ago. Naturally mike book all about flip. That wo- is mean script and empower ourselves for a success because this will tell you a little bit at something something about me. I have a little framed plaque on my desk. A little saying that says tell that negative committee inside your head to sit down and shut up. How do we do that once once and for all that's beautiful awareness is number one of course and you know that until we are willing to admit there is an intruder that has taken over our lives. You can't deal with it. Second is yes looking right at it and calling an md calling it out for the liar is when it tells you you're insecure and your inadequate and then you're unworthy thirties recognizing booth recognizing that you Marvelously made in destined to win at whatever. You set your mind to and if you set your mind to losing gail you're destined to win it. Losing good job. I e exactly right and that's why i kind of wrapped our conversation this morning by the way six forty eight now northern colorado's voice one two three one thirteen ten. Kfi a our conversation with rob whites and accomplished entrepreneur. You can hear the passion and enthusiasm in his voice and author of five books his newest the maestro monologue. Because i couldn't help. But compare and contrast for those who are gobbled up by negatively when you look at the words of steve atwater peyton manning and john lynch. I mean just absolutely Inspiring in terms of their positively. And that's why. I thought this would be such a great continuation of that conversation. Thank you gail so rob. Where can we find your book while. It's up presale right now on amazon and barnes and noble in anywhere. That books are so It is released or nine nine and I believe it's a transformational book. I really believe if you read it and bring your life with you when you read it. Don't read it like it's entertaining or something. You should tell others about but keep asking yourself watch this got to do with me by eight by the end of the book. You will not be the. I am that you were when you open the book. You will not be the i am that you were when you open this vote and rob before i let you go. Why is our introspection so critical. Why is why do we tend to emphasize not our strengths and talents but what we perceive to be missing while when the other south gains a grip on your mind it only looks at. What's wrong with you for it to gain force in your life can't exist unless you persist would thinking there's something wrong with you and so it is. It's a condition to thinking that has you looking at yourself looking for mistakes and that in that it's when you become aware of that awareness then you can do something about it. It's separating yourself from yourself looking at yourself and seeing you're talking to yourself and ways to convince yourself that you're not yourself. The possibility for infinite possibilities rob beautifully. You are a poets in addition to all of your other extensive accomplishments in your life so we need to learn to focus on not. What's wrong with us. But what's right with us and shut out those damning voices. If i'm getting it right you've got it right. Thank you gail deal. Rob white accomplished entrepreneur author of the new book. The maestro monologue. Thanks so much for your time and for lifting us all just a bit this morning. Thank you gail. Take care now.

Rob might lights and accomplished entrepreneur author of five books now his latest the maestro monologue making some very powerful points this morning and i have to wonder i mean am i the exception rather than the rule i mean to most of us walk around strutton our stuff saying hey i'm great. I'm all that and a bag of chips or like me Do you tend to focus on what you think. You're not bringing to the party. What you're lacking in the overall life equation. It's like well you're competent not to say you're complacent but you're always thinking on. I could do better. I could be better focusing on instead of the skill set that you do have focusing on what you perceive you don't have and i just thought bouncing off that conversation this morning as we watched those Broncos and i mean. I mean so prolific so articulate and so real i mean boiling down a career and all of the highlights of professional football career into eight or nine minutes and being able to have fun with it and like peyton manning taking some shots. Tom brady and peyton. Manning seems to be i mean he is living is best life when you agree i mean and he is able and i'm sure just like the rest of us. Sometimes he takes a look inside and says hey you know there's something about myself or There's a barrier that i would like to break. There's another achievement. That i would like to get a toehold on but i think the difference when you are operating at such a high kabir and do have that gift of perspective and the ability to take a long hard look at yourself not in terms of beating yourself down but to lift yourself up. Introspection can be a wonderful thing. I think there's something to learn from all that. How about you night. Seven three five three thirteen ten all right. Abc news than a local news.

Dp show email address dp. Dan patrick dot com twitter handle had. Dp show mclovin. What kind of poll questions are you thinking today before i get to my big announcement okay. I it's polarizing. But i think we need to get into. It has been a good or bad postseason for paul. George of the clippers okay. We'll get to that in a moment. What else okay Who is the guy in this playoff that you've never heard of before that now. You definitely know. I would've just nominated a couple clippers. Terrence mann sons campaign Debunks bobby portis or john collins landed that people know atlanta. there are all these weird names that are emerging. Who's anybody's catching your fantasy a star. I know you know these parents man has been interesting because you think of field of dreams with james earl jones character. And that's the only reason why he's like terrance man and then that's a character from a movie. I one more quick one before you get to the announcement okay. Who has the most to add to their legacy in this nba playoffs. Is it. obviously. Chris paul or could you put jaanus or chris middleton on that list as well well. Jaanus is going to have time chris. Paul doesn't have time. This might be the last call for chris. Paul and i would say chris. Paul get to the finals and if you happen to win a championship that sort of legacy defining for chris paul because he's the most decorated player probably in the history of the nba who's never been to the nba. Finals will settle on a poll question. The gotta play of the day stat of the day and your phone calls are always welcome. You know that. I've been passionate about one person getting into the pro football hall of fame. I've been talking about. John and i never met john. Let me give you just a little taste of the voice of god. This is the nfl's voice. John just to give you an idea of what that sound was growing up with. Nfl films how important it was to an entire generation. Here is the late john zenda. The autumn wind is a pirate blustering in from c. With a rollicking song. He sweeps along swaggering voice. Christly faces weber beaten. He wears a hooded with a similar about his hand and a bristling black moustache. He growls as storms. The country villain. Big three's all shape quite as he robs them of their gold. The autumn win is a raider pillaging. Fun he'll do round upside down and laugh when he's conquered and one so it was a while ago and i talked to mclovin about this. Actually i reach out to the pro football hall of fame. Because john says not in the pro football hall of fame baseball celebrates its voices. I thought why doesn't the nfl celebrates voices or the voice of the nfl. He's a contributor and he should be in the pro football hall of fame. And i wrote a letter to david. Baker david is the president of the hall of fame and he was very nice very polite. A welcoming and i said look david. I know john percent. I never met him. I don't know his family. I just know what he meant to me. Growing up and david said submit a letter and then all pass it on yesterday. I get a phone call. And it's from the pro football hall of fame to tell us john for is going in. He is the recipient of the pete. Rozelle radio television award and Let me bring in david. Baker the president of the pro football hall of fame. First of all. David thank you for putting up with me and second of all. This is awesome. This is great news. It made my weekend so thank you. Then you're easy to put up with because we love what you do and we appreciate all you've done for the game but this was kind of a unique experience because i remember when you called me first before you sent me that letter and it was It's a process much like all of our hall of famers But the people who is l. award is really unique because it's about excellence in broadcasting football and john as you know was not really a broadcaster broadcast game. She didn't you know he. He wasn't Like one of the guys in the books there but he was at nfl films like you said referred to as the voice of god and for a whole generation of football fans. This guy is voice. That baritone is synonymous with strengthened cower. And the character of the nfl and he helped us love the game. And it's fitting that in a year. That steve sable those. Am as a hall of famer to join his dad. Ed sable as all favor both will have bronze west. There that joins the santa will receive the award for excellence of broadcasting. Thank you for for everything here. Like i said to you. When i talked to you and i wrote the letter i never met him. I just know what he meant to me. In an entire generation and hopefully a new generation gets to experience. John fashanu. But i wanna thank the pro football hall of fame and certainly you david for entertaining this idea. They i promise you dan. We're going to keep his legacy alive now forever. that's what we do is a protocol. But what's pretty cool and this is a real compliment to you. You know. i'm sure your listeners. Know it but when you call me. You're calling me as dan patrick celebrity. You're calling as a fan now. You love the game. You loved what this guy had done and for so many of us on saturdays being in front of the tv set to watch nfl football follies. Or those mythical things that steve sable we've together in the senate would narrate and when you should your letter which was always well done And went on to our committee of selectors For this Award you know it kind of opened the door to people saying this is somebody who should be recognized as somebody who for not only for this generation of fans but probably for generations to come because things like you just played for. The autumn went You know it it. It is animus with an nfl and This year he'll go in As the recipient of the pete rozelle award We actually have what we think is going to be the greatest gathering in football ever. This place chanted to kick off the hundred seconds. She's at the nfl that we have really two glasses with. The pandemic having clan cancelled last year's enshrinement we will have this. Incredible centennial clash. That will celebrate rate. You know the hundred year the nfl where we were having twenty hall of famers for twenty twenty and now we have the class of twenty twenty one so we have the unique situation of having to people's recipients. That'll be honored. Joe buck for twenty twenty. He was actually honored in the middle of the game. From cleveland at halftime. That's when he was informed. And because john is no longer around the sun jack will receive the award on august. Ships that goal jacket presentation But we thought it appropriate since you put in the nomination that we call you and give you the good news david. I look forward to it and thank you again. We appreciate everything. The pro football hall of fame stone. Dan thank you for the game. That is David baker is the president. Ceo of the pro. Football hall of fame. I swear. I got that call a late yesterday afternoon. And it was a cleveland area. Code and i go. Who's calling me from cleveland. I got friends there. My sister lives there. I'm going. I don't know who this is. I pick up legal. Yep he said Hey such and such pro football fame. And i go i. I can't go in and then said no you're not going in. I said goes john for sunday is what so. Yeah john is going to go into the pro football hall of fame. So i take no credit for it other than just to open their eyes to enter ears to somebody who like that was a big deal. Nfl films was huge. And i i thought long. And hard behind the scenes for steve sable. Ed sable i mean they what they did for the game. You can make a case. Not that anybody's going to an argument. They were as instrumental as anybody in the history of the sport in growing it. When you when you talk about contributions that's a contribution and john for sunday was a newsman in philadelphia. He wasn't even a sports guy but he had that voice and how they created. Nfl films in those features was was really instrumental in in my love of the game or growing to love the game even more so john percent is going into the hall of fame and thank you again to the pro football hall of fame for listening to me. They probably thought it was the damn patrick again. Yes first of all good job. But secondly i think you brought this up maybe a little over a year ago. I can't remember when the date but we were all surprised that he wasn't in. Because if you're i think Forty plus you. Kind of assume john is one of the blocks of the building of the nfl and we grow. I used to watch these tapes. He's vhs tapes in his voice was on it how it got so. I think it's one of those things it's almost like. It's almost like what you did that. The veterans committee. Where they you saw an oversight that maybe no one really thought about but when people move onto more modern broadcasters and they probably forgot about some of the older ones but also he didn't do play-by-play and he wasn't a studio host like he was just an announcer. He was just a voice. And i think that was the hard part that i was trying to push through that or knock it down with. Just you know what. What is the true football broadcaster. And i said he doesn't play by play and he's not a studio host. He just is the voice of the nfl. And that's to me worthy enough to be in the pro football hall of fame amick love. I love the irony too. You tried out for the great part of battle. When when john passed away and i did a feature at nfl films when i was cnn. Back in the mid eighties. And i thought while i'm here i should probably let them hear this voice and i went into a recording studio at nfl films. Probably the same recording studio that john fashanu is in and i gave read but i gave a read. Is john fa- senda. I didn't do it in just my normal voice. I went down like this. The silver and black clad masters of intimidation nearly took joe. Thank like i think they were just being polite. They're like okay. all right. i said you know let me know. I said it'd be hard for me to come all the way down here to. Nfl films but you know. Let me know. I i got a shot here. I'm still waiting to hear back from nfl films. But i've heard from the pro football hall of fame. So that's awesome mclovin. Thank you as well because we were bouncing ideas. I just said you know. I got a craft something that is going to sound and look professional and that you know my passion as a football fan as a kid is going to be incorporated in this and and you were very instrumental in helping me with that. I appreciate that. You know films philadelphia company. It was a big deal. They used to have assemblies where they would bring you into the auditorium to watch in one thousand nine hundred. Forty eagles highlight film and then ended up. Doing despite the four eleven record are good for gangrene or whatever yeah might have been four and twelve. Four and eleven fourteen. Yeah i didn't know. I used to love. Nfl films in the eighties used to do a team like a yearbook video. You could order. Like i think if you bought sports illustrated they'd send you a copy and if your team sucked. The chicago. Bears collecting for the future. Our five and eleven. Thanks for listening to the dan.

What would you ask scotty pippin. His name is bill in the news lately. Hasn't i probably would ask godley. He is perhaps the second half of one of the most famous duos in our game. Ever right i would wanna know if he ever won a one on one game with michael jordan in their prime during practice because michael was notorious for playing one with his teammates. I wanna know if at all scotty ever one one of those gates do you think. They're friends define france off the off. The court i think they are look they. They shared too much above not to be friends. I do. i think friends i think. Look the last dance in my opinion. Didn't portray scotty in the way as a going against scottie. Has i felt against them. It was michael's dock. It was from his point of view. Your mic was rough on him. He didn't he was. He didn't talk about the dumbest contract ever signed. And ask question when you when you were watching that dog. did you say that to your cell. That was the dumbest contract ever signed. Did you say i said it. Everyone said it. When michael says it is wrong. Does it need to be said how many years later if everybody knew it. Then why does it need to be said again. You know. Michael loves taking jabs. And that's true and i. I think they're france because again. They so many unbelievable moments together and i do agree with scotty. There would be no six without scotty. I do agree with that. But i think we're kinda gets inflated from scotties view is michael was definitely the alpha. He's gotta to understand that. And i think that kind of gets blurred in the lines a little bit with with. But i don't understand this reg because he's saying that when when phil jackson pick toni kukoc take the last shot in the playoffs against the knicks. One thousand nine hundred four. He said go back and look at it and you can see it. It was my team. Why are you telling me to take the ball out. Game tying shot. He says read between the fine lines then he goes on to say that it was a racial move to give toni kukoc to rise so so no no further explanation of that no see. I don't argue with that. No no no no. There's plenty of times. I've been decoy on the pacers team. There's just times when that has to be the case because everyone assumes knows the ball's gonna go to you. And sometimes you have to be a decoy. The whole racial point. No absolutely i. That i don't roll. But cou coach only had one point. Eight seconds. Coach would have been a better deep shooter than scottie pippen. And he made the shot right. Yes okay and i guess was right but also trying to understand i scotty. It's like it's not a midlife crisis. Because i don't know scotty pippin but it it. It feels like that with the reaction to the documentary He says what he says about the last shot. He says what he says about durant and durant's lebron and i okay with his thoughts on kevin durant. I don't agree but all right. That's his opinion. He thinks kevin durant not a great team player and lebron would have made the nets better. Okay that's his opinion that seemed to make a lot of headlines just because he was critical of anytime you include lebron into conversation and then kevin durant fires back. Then you got yourself you know the fire. Yes anytime you're gonna throw nj lebron katie and put yourself in the mix. I mean you're talking about heavy hitters in our game kevin durant a floor. Is he a good team player. Durant yeah with what you saw absolutely would. Lebron have made his teammates better in the same situation. Because that's what scott is arguing. I personally scott's kevin durant was fatigue that to me had nothing to do with involving your teammates and being selfish and i just katie was was fatigued at that moment. The game of playing every single minute of that game. Yeah i kept thinking okay using scotties logic than lebron is gonna make joel harris. Make those shots. Now james harden's now gonna make some shots like those guys. Let durant down by necessity. Kevin durant had to say yes he was. He was a one man band in particular moment. But that is no slight to me. I i think the reason. Why steve. Nash call timeout. There's no way that milwaukee was able to set their defense. And i'm gonna roll the dice. Kevin durant been fantastic for us. The last ballgames. I'm gonna roll with my home run hitter. And he came up short. That's no slight. The same lebron would have been better in that moment. We've seen the history of kevin durant make big time shots throughout his career. He was half an inch from sydney milwaukee home anyways so i disagree on scotty on that end. I don't think it's a midlife crisis. i think he just wants people to remember. He was the second. Part of a duo. One of the greatest duos this game has ever seen and basketball and historians like yourself like myself we know. I think it's the generation that's the younger generation. Really doesn't know who. Scottie pippen is and the last doc. Didn't help in terms of how they feel about him. Reg on the call with mar for the bucks and the hawks on tnt watching. Chris middleton it feels like he's the closer for this team. He's not the star. But when chris middleton plays well the milwaukee bucks win does he know his role on this team. Yes and you are one hundred percent correct. And i think i said that on the air last night you've had to have the ball in his hands three minutes or less when the game was close. Because jonah's doesn't make free throws and they're gonna intentionally fell him and he doesn't have an offensive game where he can create his own shot. I almost would say drew holiday. A second in terms of command of having the ball enhanced. Both of those guys can make plays janas. Is the best player. He's the most talented on that team. He is like through three and a half quarters. He's going to set the team up and put them in the right decision to win. But when it's closing time. You put the ball in in. Chris bilton hands and let him finish. In case in point was last night he has struggled in games. wanted to fifteen points apiece. Thirty points in two games any erupts for twenty in the fourth. That's just that's just how he is. That's how he's built. Feels like he can win a game for you but he can lose a game for you because you to out sometimes new. But i'd rather a player be overaggressive than under aggressive. And he kinda shot him out game one. He kept shooting and six twenty three. And i think he wasn't different as much as you should have in game. One hurt him but we also saw the flip side in game three for middleton. It's amazing that the hawks are this far because that that's that lineup is banged up now. You got trae young banged up. You know it's a. It's a credit to nate mcmillan in that. But you know. I look at that that line up and that bench and i go. I wonder what they'll be like at full strength next season. Well you get the andrea hundred act. I give a boy on donna bitch. A lot of credit playing on one leg. She looked a little bit better early on in game. Three last night Excuse me a game four. But it just wasn't quite the same effectiveness that we saw early on in these playoffs. And certainly towards the end of the regular season to take some pressure off trade then when trading tweaks his ankle he came back. he wasn't absolutely you. Just don't know where the scorns come from. It's been by committee for them to get to this point but with all those guys banged up. This is a tall order for them. To now again he could. Trade could be fine. You could be at eighty eighty five percent still put on a a a great performance but with holiday dogging him taking him up full very physical with him if he can't get around and then sometimes when they switch off honest sodom with that size and length and then they're funneling him to brook lopez. It's a tall order. i agree with you. I give nate and his staff a lot of credit But maybe the end is near here. I'm not saying. Atlantic cannot come back but if trae is not at close to one hundred percent and making some of those crazy shots that we saw before the injury last lara. it's going to be very difficult for atlanta. You got clippers. Sun's coming up tonight. But i i can't help but think every time. I see a cut away leonard. What's his future in playing with this knee. That feels like this is going to be there the rest of his career and does he want to be here. You know i don't know i. He's he's a mystery here he's up sweet not even down on the floor. I i don't know. What do you gather out of this situation. He's a hard due to figure out. Right yeah. I don't think anyone knows choir. I'm sure his teammates no his intentions. And i'm not saying quite a bad guy. I love choir. You know from the same hometown. I love demeanor. I love his game but look a knee. Issue is serious the fact that we're not getting any updates on it tells me more than i need to know. I don't think he's coming back in the series even if it goes seven or they get to the nba finals But it it. It's a little weird that instead of being a sweet. He would be on the floor. Because as a teammate. I could get more information from a two-time Finals vp in real time. As opposed to him just coming down halftime. Hey do this do that. Or i see this. I would much rather have my in. Bp you know on the bench. You know giving. Paul george You know give him. Patrick beverley giving charan's man booze blade. Unbelievable i mean man could really use a lot of these this information from coli but it is what it is. I mean it doesn't diminish how great of a player he is. If i don't know if i want to invest like the clippers are invested in him but do i want to have a guy who is you know there. There's he's high maintenance like you you you really have to gear for him for the regular season everything about it. I dunno i dunno as they move on. Move on with quiet leonard. Or if i'm a franchise. I'm moving on will clash okay. I mean he's a healthy whole. Yeah but i know he will be. But you saw in that in that dallas series alone in the fourth quarter. I love it. I just don't know how consistent that is rich. I don't know as they move for. That needs. Not getting any better. Feels like chronic. It feels like it's going to be there the rest of his career. What you wanna do manage coli into the playoffs and knock on wood. That he doesn't get hurt like he did now with no games in back to back. If he can stay. Healthy is history has proven that he is a hall of famer two-time vp type player defensive player so when healthy and whole unrolling require. You gotta get there. That's the problem. i know. You gotta manage anger them there. Once you're there you let them take over. If you're damian lillard. Do you wanna stay in portland. You're bringing in chauncey. Billips like that mean for damian. Lillard does that can improve their chances dramatically. That they're gonna he's gonna play meaningful games. The next three four months are going to be very important in terms of what kind of moves chauncey and that leadership group of the blazers do. Because you're you're agree. You're going to have to show daniel lillard okay. I'm serious about winning the championship here. Because of all the players that have asked to be traded lillard is never said one word is been a ride or die with them. I think chauncey was a great hire for the i do having played against chauncey i know his mindset. He's a great communicator. He's a great leader. He's been around. He's a champion. Is going to have to have some heartfelt condolences between cianci and lillard. Lillard has to be open and honest and in in terms of what he wants. Who would you love to play with. How can we go about executing that them in you know. What do you need. Those conversations need to be had in the need to be had sued. And then you've got to put that on paper in try to go out and build a team around him and it's going to be tough you think so. Well i just don't know you have damon and she j. mccollum. I moved maybe has to be. We'll see i can see if cj move because you can get something from him. You can get a draft. Picking a veteran player. Depending on where it is you can get some pieces from a call him but you know nourishes always heard. What do you do with him. zach collins. All of last year always hurt. So i mean you gotta get some guys that are not as injury prone that has some experience and that can lend some ballgames or help you win some ballgames along with lillard reg will be on the call with marv albert. When's your next game tomorrow tomorrow night. Okay what are you doing all go for a run right here in the a. Just relax get ready for tonight's Sons clippers game. Are you big. Hugh those fans probably. They're they're not mean spirited down there right here yeah yeah level teddybears here not at all. Did you play against dominique Of course yes.

I'm trying to think the last time we spoke Probably six years ago. you're making some headlines here scottie. And i'm always picking keep my mouth. Is there anything that you wanna clarify put in context from the g. q. Article not really. I mean i think with the kevin durant thing. I think that people may not have understood the question asking me you know had he surpassed lebron james Stand on of looking at it at basketball. And what lebron james have been able to do from caring team I don't think kevin durant is our position where i can say that. He surface lebron james. Yeah and you're just being an analyst here looking at this it it. It didn't feel personal. But it felt like kevin took it personally. Is that how you assess that. Yeah and best count. How kevin takes anything unless you're praising him pushing them up And i wasn't trying to in any way belittle him. I think he's a very talented player. Is shown net by ambi has to finals. nbc's but still The question that i asked it was based on him and lebron's burst. How would you guard him. And how different would that be in guarding. Lebron all dan. I'm gonna be on this the way i've played the games. They would have become back in my era in place I can play. This is all this is a non touch game is a shooter game where they're not any contact Up late on air where the game was physical and you had to physically be ready for that type of challenge ninety and night out. It wasn't a game where you knew you were gonna get open shots are you weren't going to get to the floor So i ask me how i regard. Those guys would be difficult for me. If i'm looking at today's rules. If you were if durant was playing by nineteen ninety-five rules against you. I mean it would be a totally different game for him He wouldn't be the same player that he is today. his ball handling would be limited. Because you could get into players body but not just durang every player on the game had more physicality to where you could pretty much gonna player from ninety four feet and use your defensive skills to try to take the game. And that's not where today's game this. Although lebron could play in nineteen ninety five the physicality probably wouldn't affect him as much. I'm guessing i mean. I'm not saying kevin durant could fly. I'm just saying he would not be type of. Were now on the other hand. Lebron james doesn't look to be a horrific score when he plays a game. He plays the game in a whole different mindset utilized teammates. He looks to be a distributor more so than a score but he's a very effective score because of his size and his strength. Do you think lebron would have made the next best that they would have gotten into. They would have. They'd still be planned. I can't say that by saying yes. It would have a whole different. Look at lebron's been on the court a he's more of a distributor. Kevin durant is a score stole. You're going to be looking at a guy that's going to be playing more for triple doubles instead of trying to score forty or fifty us. That helped me understand the g. q. Article where you talked about. The nineteen ninety-four playoff game. When you refuse to go back in the game and phil setup the play for toni kukoc somewhat to be said if you go back and look at on skype Who coach inevitable's and who deserve the last shot of the day. No no no. I understand that scotty. I'm just going by what you said. You said you need to read between the fine lines and then you go on to say. It was a racial move to give him. Tony coach awry solving. If you knew this guy had been with the bulls made it seven ballot pistons and every other team that we had to get to those three championships when you give guided given one opportunity to get a last second shot without michael jordan like one year without michael jordan. Can i get one job. Like i'm doing all the dirty work but all of that. I understand from the basketball standpoint. But when you say a racial move or why would. Why would tony. Who was a rookie. If the last second shot and you put me a bounce. That's what i mean ratio like. That was scotty pippin stain but bond race. To be an mvp that you're right. Yeah okay well. Why would you put him in position not to be successful while when you put him in a position to succeed. Michael jordan is not there. So who's next in line for you. But if you talked phil about this because it by saying a racial move then you're you're calling fill a racist. I've got a problem with that. Do you think phil was or is. Yeah i mean. Do you remember feel jackson left. The lakers went wrote a book on koby bryant and then came back and coast. I mean who would do that. You named someone in professional sports. That would do that. You know. I think he got the exposed gobi in a way that he said no. You're the head coach and you're the guy that sits in the locker room until Players this is a circle and everything stays within the circle. Because that's what team about but you as the head coach. Open it up and now you go out in you. Try to belittle at that time. Probably one of the greatest players in the game. What feels like he's disloyal. I don't know if that makes him a racist. That's your way of putting it out. And i have my way i was in the locker room. you're looking for and look that's why i wanted to have you on but i go back and fill designed to play for steve kerr when mike there and mike. Mike didn't have a problem with that. Diddy on you're not. You're not setting me up to answer the right choice. What you mean feel settled. Playful steve Even says that seek. He said. George i thought in the huddle mike says i'm gonna throw you the ball you'll be opening that the felon that phil had nothing to do with that and you don't wanna get this show started because they will take us alone. You know all those cameras as sitting in hoddle who was working for the nba. You-know-who michael was speaking to. When say that right that was that was plans. That was speaking to the camera. Wasn't speaking out of what we're going to have to do what the play is going to be. That was speaking to the camera. Had done hadn't done stop. The not came down. Trust me but that was billing his own documentary because he knew he was controlling the gamblers. You understand english okay. So all those cameras that was working working. Basically for michael jordan but is god But billing the come fly with me the air jordan. That's what it was it that was not naturally spoken. Rehearse okay. did you guys understand that. He was doing a documentary that last year. We understood from phil jackson that the nba wanted to do them behind the scene footage or thirteen documentary. That's what we was on the suit. That's what we will soul but that wouldn't have all dan. You just do phased out a little bit there with your connection. So yeah i. I wasn't pausing yeah. I wasn't pausing because i didn't understand what you were saying. Just wanna let you know. But you feel like there's anger with you or clarification. Or i don't know i'm trying to get a feel more. I think it's more clarification. You got a great angry at all. Yes i've had a great career wonderful time in chicago and It is what it is. But i think there needs to be some clarification about a lot of things that happen whether it was in the documentary or At that i spoke on i. I didn't know how you were portrayed in the in the documentary and obviously it was slanted. But i just if everybody knew you sign a bad contract and it needs to be brought up that you signed a. I don't know it felt like it was finally. I think my biggest thing with the documentary was that michael didn't in ninety four. Who was selling video based on. The last dance was something that he sort of tried to pull out to show. That winning was all about me. And this is what. Everybody else d- when i wasn't around eight that in his documentary i mean he wasn't only dainty. Yeah you know and if anything if you're going to show that you call feel why don't you show that you call field to bat for me. I mean i'm probably was the only man standing Who had been there with him back in the early eighties but yet he comes back the next year because it was getting good. We weren't fading away. Have you talked to michael since the documentary. No you want not not really talk like gonna tell during a little bit but not no. Do you want to know i mean. I think we both moved on in our life. There's nothing to be holding onto. That went on twenty plus years ago. What did you think very nothing to talk about that. I mean we could talk about live off families golf game or something but as got golden craff. Nothing happened in ninety. Nice what what did you think. When he said he was going to go play baseball. I really think about that was fairly young. Focus on my own craft at that time. But i was a big decision though. Yeah it was. It was a big decision but it was a is a selfish decision but it was kinda Who might enjoy was was a guy that count a league that he can do anything on his own. The relationship was just a were teammates and that was about it. I mean yeah pretty much. I mean we were excellent teammates. I mean i think we try to make more ida sometime. It really was but you know. We were great court teammates who had a very good understanding of each other. What it took to win talking. Scotty pippen he has a new bourbon out. Digits a that's been in the works for a while. How did you come up with this idea. A little booze of wide awhile. I think winning Been cold winners zero so i.

It would be interesting He had his moments where he was out of high. And i have my moments in my career without. I was at a high so it would have been interesting man joe but in my era narrowly believed in wanna once and best kind of where the game has evolved into today find a way on that draft night when you and olden polynice were traded for one another. Yes i'm i'm sitting right there and you guys had hats on. So you have your seattle supersonics hat on. And then all of a sudden you here and a trade to announce the balls end supersonics are swapping first round so you and paul policies change taps right there in front of us. I mean it was it was it was wild to see that you ever wonder what your career would have been like. If you weren't traded. I may have some pretty good teammates. Special we will still landed showing kim gary Bills team that we played in the final. So that sort of fit. That would have been a pretty good team to to join. Alipay would have been fun to go against mike with that. Seattle team Yeah i don't know if you know what well see there you go. You're stirring up again. Mike needed you. He didn't win without you right. That's what they tell me. Well good luck with the bourbon. It's called digits and the popcorn. Snack called husk and then the book. I'll probably be talking.

"This is mornings with kale and northern colorado's voice. Thirteen ten kfi k. Stepped outside of sporting event. Cook chill out. it's a little nippy. It feels like fall. No no not ready for summer to end. How about you nine. Seven three five three thirteen ten. Drop me a text done or thirteen ten. Kfi text line. I'd looking at the glass half full. At least we've got football to look forward to as we celebrate. Three more broncos being inducted into the pro football hall of fame this weekend certainly an honor. Well deserved six. Eight now on northern colorado's voice one or three point one thirteen ten kfi kpfk mornings with gail from the auto collision specialists studios. You know kind of scrolling through all the articles background on the fact that you've got Three three Broncos being inducted to a pro football hall of fame steve. Atwater will be inducted on saturday. Night followed by paint and manning and john lynch on sunday night but i loved the take of not ryan o'halloran in the denver post so many people to acknowledge. Thank an honor. He writes and so little time to do so ever since they were elected to the pro football hall of fame. The last two. February's former bronco's steve atwater peyton manning and john lynch have spent hours. Can you imagine trying to encapsulate years of playtime and memories into an eight minutes speech as they are inducted into the pro football hall of fame this weekend all of this to be delivered on a stage and can't know oh where would you begin. And how difficult would that be well. Needless to say the three of them have gone through numerous interest of those speeches now out water. A member of the class of twenty twenty well. his induction was delayed by the pandemic. He speaks once again. Saturday nights followed by class of twenty twenty one members nanning and lynch on sunday evening and they actually sat down with the denver. Post this past summer and a kind of went through the trials and tribulations challenges of capturing so many memories and having only eight minutes to do so now atwater who made eight pro bowls won. Two super bowls with the broncos will be presented by former teammate. dennis smith at water said he spent the summer quote. Moving stuff around close quote in his speech asked what his message will be. He laughed and said. Hey you'll see. When i get there going on to say i know i'll get a chance to acknowledge a lot of people who played a special part in my life and have their names heard because well steve atwater said it wasn't just me playing football. That got me here. It was the coaches. I had the mentors. The friends my family and my parents he said. Hopefully a lot of those people will be happy. Boy does atwater have drilled down. What does that cliche about There is no telling no limit on how far you can go if you're willing to spread around the credit and it sounds as though that's exactly what he's intending to do. Meanwhile peyton manning will be presented by his father archie. The only first ballot hall of famer among the broncos trio manning's election was revealed to him your member this january twenty second during a surprise meeting at the broncos home stadium with several former coach irs coaches including phillip fulmer. Tony dungy jim. Caldwell gary kubiak among others travelling to denver manning said that was a really special moment it made me reflect on all of the people once again giving away the credit who have been part of it since that moment he said it's been a great time going down memory lane. Manning said he had begun reaching out to friends. G mates and coaches this past spring to thank them for their support and to point out that sadly unfortunately time doesn't allow him to list every single name of those who have made such an impact on his life is journey during the speech. He said you can't thank every single person who has been part of your football journey. It's impossible so what he's tried to do since he got. The news was call a lot of these people personally or write them a note and let them know. Thanks because in eight minutes. Obviously you've got to generalize it in some way. Meanwhile lynch will be presented by his son jake and arizona state coach herm edwards. Who was lynch's position coach in tampa bay from one thousand nine hundred ninety six to two thousand lynch's speech will focus. Says he said on quote a few things close quote and tell me if you see the common thread running through all three of these hall of famer soon to be a pro football hall on the famous this as lynch said number one the genuine gratitude gratitude. I feel so for so many people who had a hand in me being on that stage. You can't arrive in canton alone. And so many people whether it be his wife. Linda his parents all of his coaches his teammates and the support staff all playing a role in his Football journey he went on to say there so many people that played an integral role. And i truly believe that. I hope that's reflected in my speech going on to say number two just the love and the passion. I have this game. I love it. I loved it when i started playing and i love it today. That's why i continue to stay around this game as the san francisco forty niners. Gm oh and a little bit of my faith to if there's a name for the speech said lynch at faith family football and i will add gratitude to that. It's a tough job was six to eight minutes to encompass all of those years of the journey. But i'm going to do my best hand of course have a lot of fun ads.

And as we celebrate this weekend's induction of broncos steve atwater eight manning and john in into the pro football hall of fame in canton ohio well more distinction of dubious nature for denver. Northern colorado's voice. One oh three point. One thirteen ten. Kfi k. mornings with gail via the auto collision specialists studios at six twenty four. Oh by the way so much good news just floating around as we're still all little big giddy over that. Fm frequency but by the way northern colorado voice. One a three point one and thirteen ten. Kfi am now an official denver broncos affiliate what does that mean will be carrying all the preseason and regular games on both frequencies so just more good stuff coming down the pike. Not so much When you look at once again rather dubious distinction for denver it was just on thursday afternoon this according to a piece by no brennan crispy crunchy out of nine news. That denver's air quality levels hovered around one ten. What does that mean well. It briefly made denver the fifth smog ist major city in the entire world. That's based on data from air quality tracking website. I q air now. The air quality reading of one ten in denver on thursday afternoon also ranked as the second highest air quality level across the entire western hemisphere trailing only santa diego chilly smoke of course from forest fires in the pacific northwest southwestern canada well as a result of a high pressure system. Move into denver On thursday while into the front range and this high pressure forcing it to circulate in a clockwise motion by the way. Yes thank you meteorologist. Chris tomer tim to pinpoint weather for explaining that to me so i could pass that along. But it also combined with ground ozone to turn denver again into can't say it enough into one of the world's most polluted cities on thursday. It's already part of an exceptionally lengthy stretch of air quality alerts for denver in the front range thursday by the way mark of thirty first consecutive day. You know. I was thinking about that because doing the weather every day. I'm kind of up on those air quality alerts and it was just wondering mulling over saying bit at least three weeks that we've been talking about that. Nope fell short as thursday marked the thirty first consecutive day with an air quality alert for the front range and while we can expect a brief respite from the oppressive mog today. Unfortunately it will return with a vengeance on saturday. Smoke from forest fires in california arrives adding to the already rather filthy skies that. We've all been subjected to over the front range. I can't tell you how many of you i taught to because we're all little bit fleming. I'm thinking it's just neo my goodness in the back of your head. You're thinking is it kovic is at the delta very variant even if you've been vaccinated no it's just The particulates floating around in the air and the smoke a so many of us are just sneezing. Coughing and hacking and sniffing. Isn't it pleasant right. But you know it's nice to know it's not just me you. But in addition to the forest fire smoke temperatures rising well into the nineties this weekend. Well that'll help. Create more ground does zone and continue to pollute the skies. In other words. It's will cut to the chase here. Smoggy skies won't likely dissipate anytime soon. Denver will probably continue to rank among the world's most polluted cities in the meantime six twenty eight on northern colorado's voice one or three point one thirteen ten. Kfi okay all right so we spent a lot of time over the past year and a half. you're learning and looking forward to whatever the new normal would bring. Well don't you find it fascinating that the new normal particularly when it comes to getting our kids back into school you're seeing this patchwork quilt effect when it comes to mask requirements ask guidance and yes mask mandates. Not only in schools. And we're talking. K twelve all the way up through The college years. But we're also seeing an ever revolving return of requirement. Some of them old. Some of them. New and i just got probably about an inch worth of reports here and i just want to run through the headlines and kind of get your take on it and when it comes to masking in schools. Oh that's been a bit of some consternation and debates. Well let's just say things got a little bit testy. As for example in loveland the thompson school board held a public meeting on mass policy. And things got a little bit snitty but this certainly isn't the new normal. We were hoping for six thirty now. Northern colorado's voice one a three point one thirteen ten k. gap k. gag. What's happening in your own. Backyard listened to no co- now with tanner's swint on northern colorado's voice. Thirteen ten kfi k. Everything you need to know about northern colorado is unknown coding. now weekdays nine and northern colorado's voice one zero three point one in thirteen ten. Kfi over the past year and a half. The numbers breezes houshold the pandemic leaked into our lexicon art of the pivot and pandemic fatigue. And of course the new normal the new normal. And how many of us. I mean it kind of reminds me. And i don't know if you had this experience or not that it kind of reminds me. Maybe when you were kid maybe you were teas- there. Maybe you were bullied or you know. Maybe things weren't all that great as you work your way through grade school and middle school junior high school high school. Because i don't know many people that really had what they would call a stellar memorable. Happy junior high school experience. I mean maybe. I'm in the minority. There when i say that but i don't think so it was tough and when you were kid do you remember i mean. I don't think it's just me. But i remember saying i can't wait to grow up. Well i didn't use the star trek turn there. But i can't wait to be a grownup because then things will be better and they'll change Yeah not so much in some ways right well. I can't help but just kind of laid that over our hopes for the new normal as we talked about over the past year and a half with all the the lockdowns the rotating mandates and guidelines and restrictions relative to the pandemic. We were all looking at this. This bright shiny future of the new normal when things were going to get so much better and we'd get back to our lives and living and we'd be able to get back and go to a fence and just celebrate life and living and enjoy life once again well enter the delta variant and then there's the delta plus variant not to mention the lamba variant that is looming. It's like a greek alphabet soup of variants when it comes to the insidious nature of this covert nineteen play. I'm going to call it for what it is. So i'm not going to delve into the panicked porn. Now i'll leave that to the likes of the cdc the world health organization and of course our esteemed the epidemiologist and chief. Dr anthony foul cheap. But here's at this point in time. What the new normal apparently looks like at at least in colorado northern colorado's voice one and three point one thirteen ten. Kfi a mornings with gail from the auto collisions specialist studios seriously. I've got a stack of articles. I said an inch thick spry more like an inch and a half. And i'm just going to work through the headlines and see if your head is spinning as much as mine was as i was putting this package together. Okay let's start with a handful of colorado restaurants and music venues began requiring vaccination o. But many of them want the government to act. I then is according to a piece out of biz. West pre prairie not media by luke asai fort collins and boulder entertainment venues are going to require vaccination proof university of northern colorado reporting high rates of cova nineteen. Vaccinations ahead of the fall semester. Remember unc mandates. That students faculty and staff and unc isn't alone but they're mandating that students faculty and staff show proof of vaccination by august fifteenth. Then we got the big sky weighing in yeah the big sky cova nineteen policy is encouraging football teams to get vaccinated sub head there once again reiterating. The fact that the university of northern colorado does require school wide vaccination meanwhile up. Cs you well you've got faculty and staff calling for a vaccine requirement and mask mandate as this delta variants spreads. Enter chasa chasa school districts. Local health departments offer few definitive plans as high school sports return to colorado sub head. Here boys golf football among other sports begin practices without any clear guidelines during the surge of this delta variant mean wild scooter school district. They will require mass for all students staff and visitors again due to the delta variant. But here's what really caught my eye because we're not alone in all of the angst when it comes to masking up our kids upon their return to in classroom learning not taking a shot at the school districts across the state or across the country. Because well i. I think they're just in the same type of confused whirlwind and not saying that they're confused but how could we not be with this ever changing litany of guidance particularly when it comes to getting our kids back to school. So let's start on a point of commonality here. I think something we can all agree upon. We want our kids back in school. We need our respected school. Going a few good men on this morning. But isn't that the truth. I mean Zoom learning only went so far. And when you look at the myriad impacts that it had the shutdowns and we're back in classrooms. No no we have. Now outbreak in the cohort. You gotta go quarantine and turn into zoom b.'s. Once again. But i think we can all agree that for our kids emotional psychological and academic development. It is vitally important. We get them back into the classroom. So this piece in particular caught my eye. Because i've been monitoring this for quite some time We worked through the protocols greeley evans school district six. And they're holding the line saying the students and staff who are fully vaccinated will not be required to wear face covering it school unless imagine this unless that is their personal choice. Wow personal accountability and responsibility. What better thing can we teach our children. Meanwhile in guidelines released by greeley evans school district six. And we've had the opportunity on several occasions to talk with the really evan school district. Superintendent dr deirdre pilch. She went onto saying you. Talk about another stellar teachable. Moment we will. Respect at greeley evans spilled a success any student and staff member who chooses to wear of face covering if they are fully vaccinated. And isn't that what we should be teaching our kids. Oh of course along with the old standbys reading reading right and rhythmic. But shouldn't we be teaching at least a modicum of civility decency of respect particularly when it comes to maintaining freedom of choice and self-determination. You tell me nine seven three five three thirteen ten drop me. A text donner thirteen ten. Kfi a text line right so at this point in time and the caveat here is you need to remember that as the delta variant continues to surge and if a lamba only complicates things even further all of these guidelines that all these schools are subject to change and being strengthened. Because who's in charge here it's covered nineteen. That's what's really in charge here. If you set aside all of the caterwauling and all the confusion and all the politicization weaponization that we have seen of this virus cove nineteen and its ability to mutate is really what is in charge of a lot of the decision making that is as going down but meanwhile back to thompson school thompson schools. Because we are seeing this across the country where you know typically quiet rather reserve. There's not a whole lot of yelling and screaming going on at school board meetings for the most part right well. We are seeing bedlam at some school board meetings across the country particularly when it comes to mask policy now. Bedlam is not necessarily a term. I would apply to The meeting that took place wednesday at the thompson. School board meeting but tempers indeed did flare and well things got a little bit testy in a little bit snitty and i can't help say that i understand the reason why parents are like. What are we doing here. what are you thinking. And what are these guidelines based upon. Thank you to dr. Anthony found she. And thank you to the centers for disease control With all of the flip-flopping that's been going on because basically we have lost our trust in those institutions because while the story keeps changing so when you bring it down to the local level. Is there any wonder that there is a lot of consternation. A lot of controversy a lot of debate and if your parents if you're grandparents would've loved for you to chime in this morning nine seven three five. three thirteen. Ten dropped me and text on our thirteen ten k. Eight tax line now. According to piece by match levee out of prairie mountain media pulled out of the loveland reporter hair herald has mentioned. Yeah people were a bit heated at the thompson. School board meeting that touched on mask wearing more than a dozen parents voice. Their concerns about the possibility of mask mandates for k. Through twelve students now setting the scene for conflict was the last discussion item. Is there any wonder why they left it. For last on the board's agenda it's it was an update on cove nineteen countermeasures planned for this upcoming school year. Now classes are currently slated to start thompson. Schools in person without a mask requirement however schools will have the ability to provide rapid cove in nineteen tests for teachers and for symptomatic students who ask for one and whose parents have given consent opportunities to get the vaccine will also continue to be made available and of course all of the enhanced cleaning and disinfecting protocols that we have talked about with any number of school leaders and of course improvements in ventilation systems. All that will be in place but one of the concerns is is bullying and again. That's why i give props. And kudos to greeley evans school district. Superintendent dr deirdre pill who said hey here is our protocol if you are fully vaccinated you do not have to wear a mask however if you are fully vaccinated it and you want to wear a mask. That is your choice. They're not breaking any bullying there. Which i think is absolutely incredible. But meanwhile lengthy piece here so Let's just kind of cut to the chase. Superintendent mark schaefer at thompson schools said. He's optimistic that students would be respected for. Their choice comes to wearing masks. But many parents spoke out against introducing. A mask mandate talking about the fact that they just don't feel that the science we're not talking science we're talking. The true science supports mask wearing mandates in schools. And unfortunately well. I suppose for lack of a better term. Since we're talking about bullying could be construed that There were some terse moments at this thompson school board meeting because as a parents got to increasingly strident.

What's up guys standard cormier. Welcome to part two of this week's dc in our seat your biggest crust. Hey wait a minute. You know those little girls to sing that back in the day. Your joe's they. I'll do your boy josie aldo. Was back last weekend and boy. Not only josie aldo knack josie aldo. Da kiss. think in last weekend joe's outgoing three round fight broke his record for significant strikes against pedro moon landing. One hundred fourteen significant stripes. He landed more in three rounds. Then he did over five rounds against chad mendes back in the day when he defended the title where you'll end at one hundred two strikes when you watch josey aldo on saturday night and from riana walkout to his boxing. It looked so tight and crisp. in the way the chili did outclass pedro mundos when you're watching josie aldo from the outside. How much do you think he's still has to offer his division. Which is such a tough division as thomas. i think he has a ton to offer the division because he's josie aldo right for for ten years for a decade. This man was unbeatable than obviously he gets caught with a straight left from conor mcgregor and then he drops down in weight. He fights peoria odor. And i'm sitting here thinking way. I i just never seen josie aldo. Be outclass like this. But this weekend he was back he was quick he was explosive he was precise he was the guy that was getting in and getting out he was making sure he was able to hit and not get hit but it depends on how we look at pedro news. I think we both felt coming into the weekend that this was a huge fight for both of these guys. This was a fight that could keep these guys in consensus but the bantamweight division is stacked in the top five and they're stack and they're stacked with names like like the stack was named like Like saint hagan their stack was named like kyodo. Yon their stack with names like all joes thoroughly. There's another name that's extremely important to me. There's another name that is flashing lights on billboards and that is t. j. dillashaw daniel cormet. Dc do you think that a fight between josie aldo right. Now it t. J. dillashaw which were get me. All in my nostalgic ufc fails is the fight bantamweight or the ufc way and be a little business like in do. What's the smart thing for the brain. You know what i'm doing rob font. I don't believe that the dillashaw fight makes sense. Right very rarely. Do you have a hundred thirty five qualified. That matters in. I've done this on a number of occasions where i can always crap on the band of weeks. I'm not trying to crack the band ones. I'm saying that. When you get like said matter when you gotta sterling versus john because of the way it ended last time that matters and you know whoever wins especially if fielder he gets dillashaw who was the champion before he got suspended right. Everything comes full circle. That fight once again matters it. Josie al building can get past. He gets a title fight. Now you got another fight that matters. You got three bantamweight fights in the queue that matter so no don't match jila show in aldo match. Although with rob quam because not only On fire but rob fund also has a style. That is good next to josie aldo. He's a boxer. He's not a not as trying to wrestle and grapple aldo. he's a guy that although can use on these new skills that he is picked up at the marine corps training center out in brazil. The boxing team and see if he is still that championship caliber. So no guys sean. Shelby gulp do. Not put t. j. dillashaw josie altogether lead dillashaw. Wait for the winner of sterling versus in. Then let al go fight someone else this. You know what you're turning in today. He said the do that stealing all of my joy. The do that stealing all of my fun of you won't go fight to go wrestle in the wwe you don't wanna let aldo t. J. dillashaw just fight right away. So i could be excited about it. But when you mentioned some of those other fights i'm also pumped about those to me josie aldo show that he is still relevant josie auto show that he can still put on a show and then not only. Does the name carry weight but the game carries weight. And that's what i'm excited about. Even conor mcgregor loved it. Matters saluted josie aldo. And i think that's what's important is that josie aldo is showing that he can still do it at a high level. You know ryan when you talk about connor showing respect. Max holloway show respect. I think john annex said something that was so telling the molin riana run this town speakers. Mia dominick cruz immediately grabbed portfolios. We blow our phones right because it's truly one of those iconic walkouts that you don't wanna miss because you don't know how many they have left but i say this josie is still very relevant last week. I said maybe he's just in the fun fights now no he was not into that at all. He said he still has championship aspirations. And on saturday he showed that he's still very He's still very important very than a. Ufc benway divinity can compete rally so capable to compete with those guys now after saturday night. Right everybody's kind of floating on cloud nine in boy dana white right data. Why do they complete u-turn right in regards to the injured japanese. You gotta be honest. I don't really disagree with them. I think he was completely right in the way that he talked about the intro championship because it was based in fats in his what he had to sit. This interim title is awesome. You have a guy who's undefeated and a guy who beat the champion. It doesn't give you the two best heavyweights in the world for sharp fighting for the title. And what happens is when they fight francis. It's like the old days of the ib versus the wbz champion and the unified the belt. That's exactly how i look at it. Look man i know. Dana was speaking to the wbz in the very smart dangerous because he talked about. Two of the biggest. The largest sanction bodies in boxing right. He didn't say the. Wb you in the wvu continental americas he said the idea in the wbz because we understand the wbz wbo ib. Those ones that matt right so he was very smart in that sense but he talked about interim championships based on. Derek was beating francis on cyril gone undefeated so it was value in that way now. Treks is the champion. And i said this longtime ago. This is essentially a number one contender's francis in donald is the heavyweight champ champion of the world and he's the baddest man on the planet because he knocked out the previous baddest man on the planet in steeping meal jr. But when you start to bring interim titles into the fray. Everybody starts to call. For on saturday. Amanda nunez juliana opinion. Amanda defending the bantamweight title for the first time since december of two thousand nineteen. It's been a long time since she has had to defend that melt is juliana pay. You're right in calling for interim championship when she just saw one created after. Three months of the champions rain with amanda has not defended since two thousand nineteen. The thinks he's absolutely right for calling for interim championship. Because look at what happened to francis in ghana when he wasn't even inactive close to as long as amanda nunez has been in that weight division obviously. She's defended her belt in another way division. But this is the problem that amanda newness has created. it's not that she doesn't want to defend their belt. It sometimes who in the hell is. She going to defend her belt against. And if you are juliane opinion. Here's your reason. Here's the reason you call for the interim belt and there's this is true. This is how i feel one. I believe you call for the interim belt because that's the only way you're going to get a bill. As long as amanda nunez is alive as she feels like fighting also to this allows this allows the ufc to build someone else there so many times when we know amanda nunez is going to get an opportunity to fight that we aren't even concerned with who her opponent is who our competitor is because what we're concerned with is. How is it going to happen. And how was she going to decide to finish it. And so if you have someone like juliana pay that gets an opportunity to win the answering bill. And he knows just needs is not even the number one contender. It's going to be the first loser but at least then you're excited about you're excited about the other opponent and you feel like they can both enlist into prefight talk. Walk around with some goals because we all know. Walking out of the octagon with the gold. And it's not making out juliana juliana is going to get you. Julianne opinion is going to get you see is me see is tough in which she sees as clip. Because i guarantee you. I am posting this. On my social media juliana. Pain is going to get you. Now here's why i disagree right. I don't think there should be an interim title because men in newness pulled off or something that out of our control right now cold right like if she was just absolutely it's cova like amanda was probably training and she got covert in the gym or something. So that's where. I disagree in amandas back into gym and she is saying now that she wants to fight in december so do have can wait to december. What i will say the ryan. Dc's is why you see. No i don't disagree. I don't i interim belt. No i disagree because of colon. The only reason if it wasn't this cold that dig that then. I'll be like no no fight right. It's cold it's cold. But that's the only reason i disagree with what you're saying what i do also disagree with a little bit. Is that due out. Pays a dog man. She's not she is going to be the toughest of fight. Amanda has had a really long dot ryan ryan. Would that being said ryan. I don't know how tough it's gonna be. would i know is. It'll be tougher than what megan anderson did last. Time are tougher than With the canadian girl did a couple fights ago at one forty five commando smart police felisa spencer. I it'll be tougher than those fights. But i don't know how am i. Picking against the lion has no ryan make no mistake about it but i do believe it'll be a little bit tougher. I'm gonna it's all about. I'm gonna play that it's all about. It's all about the. Don't you dare planet fernandez. Don't you dare try to make it like i'm going to say you get it. You can't i've you feel like he's going. I'm gonna say it. I never said i never said that. I'm saying that this island storm these that amanda has. I'm a bit scatter amanda newness. I have a biscuit. Do that won't be an honest with all the titles that are made in nunez has right cheese in rarified air right it's it's a faction of people that don't really accomplish the things that she has but last week in our c. You spent time with a lot of people that have won championships that have reached their ultimate goals. And then last weekend they joined where they will live forever. They were enshrined into the pro football hall of fame. Talk to me about what it was in. How did it feel to be surrounded by that much to hall of fame classes on one weekend to sue that greatness in one area ryan like i mean i i was. I'm so jealous that you got to experience that experience i tell you if you ever wanna make yourself feel extremely insignificant goto the pro football hall of fame in sit around those dudes and listen to the stories and listen to the things that they've accomplished not only individually but as a team but the one thing that was also was five pittsburg steelers winning a coach that i played for a coach collar offensive linemen that i played with in both college. Nfl and allen. Monica and obviously one of my closest friends in the world and troy paula. Malu into get an opportunity for to watch. Those men received their flowers for them to be alive to hear the things that people could say about him for the stadium to be packed with terrible towels towels in pittsburgh steelers fans but also listen to people like edgerrin. James take take a moment to step outside of himself and speak to the world and speak to society and give a call to everyone to be better. Because that's what the hall of fame of is about. The hall of fame is about the best of the best so to have an opportunity to use your platform. The way edgerrin james did or the way drew pearson did his excitement for finally make it into the hall of fame. It was truly a humbling moment for me and it's one of those experiences that you never think it's something you want to do. Like i've never wanted to go to the hall of fame and be around that event but now is something. I think i'll try to each in every year because you learn something you feel something you take something away from a weekend like that. He has crazy to see All that greatness in one area man. And i'm just so happy that you got experience that and it's something that you wanna do going forward in from. All those guys getting inducted into the hall of fame in like you said receiving their followers. I wanna give my guy jock results of his flowers men on a great career. You know former strikeforce champion spent years at the top of the ufc fighting the best of the best. Unfortunately never got that. You have c. Title fight that he was so close to on so many occasions but we saw jock herrera build a legacy that he and his family can be so proud of from the jujitsu stories. The breaking his arm sticking it in his Belt in order to finish the match to become into strikeforce champion some great performances that he had inside the i share the ufc.

Mid mid-sole can do their forty four. Running shoe is designed to move you forward by turning vertical pressure into forward motion every single stride. Adidas forty four designed to move you forward donna. What's going on everybody. Our joe here. From espionage blogging. The boys dot com hall is wherever you are. We hope you're happy safe healthy and that you're excited because the first cowboys preseason game of the year is officially in the dallas cowboys. Losing to the pittsburgh steelers in the pro football hall of fame game a final score of sixteen to three. We don't necessarily care about the final score but we have a lot to discuss a lot unpacked a lot to figure out and so we are here to do that together. We are live on the blog in the boys youtube channel. We will podcast this conversation later for those of you who arrived later if you prefer to listen to it that way. Please subscribe to the blog on the boys. Youtube channel recently passed eleven thousand subscribers looking forward to many many many more. Please subscribe also the blog. The voice podcast network. We have a new show. That goes out every single day because we know that news is always happening in the world of america's team. What's going on jalen mikhail. Hope all is well or you are as well and look. This wasn't necessarily a great showing for the cowboys. But it never was going to be that we knew that it was going to be sloppy. We knew that it was going to be rough. We knew that it was going to be filled with kind of bumps and bruises along the way because it is not only a preseason game but it is the pro football hall of fame game. The dallas cowboys did not even send sixteen of their players to this game quarterback dak prescott among them back Did do an interview with the fox broadcast from oxnard where the cowboys will head back tomorrow on friday. By the way the cowboys. We'll have a joint practice with the los angeles rams on saturday. So we'll see how that goes there next. Preseason game is next. Friday as the cowboys had to take on the arizona cardinals before they wrap up the oxnard portion of training camp aaron on our facebook page says i was content with the defense. If you're just trickling in let's let us know what you were content with what you did not like in fact we'll term it as winners and losers just because that term makes sense. Nobody's a loser. We'll start with the biggest winner of them. Although mike parsons. I don't think there's any doubt that mike parsons was the biggest winner from the night for the dallas cowboys. Mike parsons actually. Getting the fumble. That happened on the very first possession of the game. In fact let's go ahead and take a look mike. Parsons is fumble recovery in 'cause it but did pick it up and ultimately that's all that matters fumbled exchange cowboys look like they got on top of it and they did. Mike parsons the wookey. In first round pick is there to can't fumble. That's an early turnover as klay pool. Never got it from mason rudolph. There's randy gregory seem to be pleased with mike. Parsons picking up the fumble michael scorn. Hey i think you've got a screenplay to work on Since parsons is speed jalen. Miguel says loved michael. There's no question. And that's really. I think when you look at the three takeaways from tonight's game just in a grant since we tweeted this out of the blog on the voice twitter account number one. Mike parsons is awesome number two. Mica parsons is awesome. It has to be said twice because this is a pick that a lot of us had a lot of issues with a lot of that is because of the value associated with the fact that the cowboys and other didn't pick him with a tenth overall pick but it effectively was a top ten pick. Spent that on a linebacker. Not exactly the most analytically driven usage of resources. And so we all had problems but mica for what is worth is ultimately right now living up to the hype and that is something that we really really wanted to see as the preseason enrolled on because mica is seemingly somebody is going to be at the center of this defensive rebuilt and so the fact that mica is making us feel much better about the pic every single day. He already started. his training. camp began as training campus. Continue to flourish. This is this is a really big thing. The other thing you know they're of big takeaway. Big win from this game in general is that you know there were no injuries and that is honestly the most important positive takeaway Let's see here. We've got aaron's parsons is a big win considering how the first going into it totally agree with you We've got kenny. Says parsons was good. Sean is not as good as advertised in seki is very bad. Rush and newt should be cut to neither. Brian says what up j. Hope all is where you are. Brian But yeah so. Mike parsons i think if we all are going to agree with one player being the clear winner for the cowboys during the pro football hall of fame game. It is undeniably micro parsons now. Let's get to further winners further losers again. we want to hear your winters your losers. I will write about this on friday a blog. The boys dot com if you prefer to read it but we are here to discuss it right now. Second winner and look. I gotta say. I didn't necessarily anticipate this happening. Even like a day ago but garrett gilbert and some of this isn't even to do with garrett gilbert for being honest because the quarterback play is a lot of comments have already shown if you're watching live on youtube or facebook People were not pleased with benvenuti. I think that is the kindest way that i can say that So part of this is just a win by association for garrett gilbert in terms of the fact that he has not been the nucci that really helps. Gerke gobert stopped. I don't think that there is are. There was any doubt entering this game entering thursday. That back eric. Gilbert me was cuba to for the cowboys. I think he played well. He played all right. I don't think he was amazing. But if we take a look at the cowboys quarterback stats for the night. Garrett gobert finishing nine of thirteen for one hundred and four yards respectable riley like. I don't think anybody's you know. Nobody's like freaking out about this. Jesse says not impressed. That's fine you know. It's all good kevin. G says de nucci trash. Yeah i get it wrench. Elec- seven of seventeen for eighty nine yards with the lone interception. And honestly that's seven seventeen feels a little bit more kind Cooper rush eight of thirteen for seventy yards Jared says. Excuse me here. It is jared in comparison. Gilbert definitely wanted to backup but he had some moments that look decent. That's the thing i mean like. He did win the again. I don't know that it was up for debate. I don't know that there was a competition for. Qb to with the cowboys. But if there was it is definitely gilbert's now As miguel says gilbert is the winner you know. We've all been saying for a long time now throughout camp at the future backup quarterback the cowboys might not even be on their roster at the moment. Joe buck said that during the broadcast that was very interesting. But yeah so garrett gilbert a winner for the cowboys on thursday night in their pro football hall of fame game albert says i would like to see more production in the red zone. Totally agree with you. That you capitalize the reds. Don't you albert not a good night for one hundred nights. Wander the field goal kicker. We'll get to that too if you want. I think we kind of have to go to losers or this particular. Loser will bounce around so far too winners. We've got mica. Parsons garrett gilbert i would love to say i'm going to try to be as kind as possible but bendon uchi is the clear loser of the game and i think this is important context if you were expecting like i know we have a lot of fun and i know we're guilty of this blogging. The boys with with twitter and social media the news. I mean right like there's no doubt about it by the way he was wearing a sick helmet. I've i've never seen a helmet into new tonight. it was perforated. all throughout it looked like We response on twitter. Like one of those. She's graders but If you're expecting something legitimate from bend nucci where you got that from now. What i will say is i was interested to see benvenuti because we knew that he was not gonna farewell last season in philadelphia because he wasn't ready to play against regular nfl players and so this was a competition level. That was more his speed and so he definitely stood a much. Better chance in this particular contest against you. Know the backups. Third strings for string. Stringers for the pittsburgh steelers. He still was not Not anything to get excited about. Aaron does agree. The helmet was sick. I agree with you Skeptical fan. Ben sacks. Yeah i mean look it was. It was a rough night. Ben nucci christopher lopez. Nucci is not ready. Engine on the practice squad not a roster spot. Totally agree with if the cowboys are burning a roster spot for benvenuti or cooper rush for that matter I think that they're really kind of wasting not just time but energy and resources and ultimately losing somebody else who can contribute to the roster in different ways so Bendon nucci clearest loser. Sorry ben Is fun though. At least we have that and you have the helmets congrats. I'll let's go to another loser. This was kind of a late edition of the loser. Category reggie davis if you watched all the way to the end number one congratulations. You're true fan number. Two had the muffed punt. Not great if you are a down the roster wide receiver and you were trying to make a football team in the preseason. You cannot make a mistake in general let alone a mistake when you are all alone. There's nobody you can blame. We got some when we tweeted out asking for winners and losers. Some people saying semi fajr oko just because he had some rough moments. Now it's hard you know admittedly for sumita look good when benvenuti is the person throwing him the ball the reggie whoops it. Easy is all on. Reggie davis really kind of a backwards moment for him. He had done had a really great training camp. So far that something like that is really difficult to overcome. I do think that will probably hear from. Reggie davis on hard knocks. I think that's generally if you watch hard nuts you kind of hear some sound clips some soundbites from that on the following weeks episodes. So we'll look forward to that on tuesday by the way if you enjoy livestream that we will be live after every single episode of hard knocks the seasons. Or we're going to have some good times on tuesday nights. Jeremy says muffed punt end of nfl career. Miguel says davis just signed his ticket out. Yeah it's it's tough. i mean. You can't muff a punt like this. So we've got two winners two losers if you're just joining us welcome. First of all subscribe to the blog was youtube channel like us on facebook. Wherever you're watching this are going through our five winners five. Losers of the night from the cowboys. Preseason loss to the pittsburgh steelers so far as a winner. We've got mike parsons. The easiest decision to make we've got garrett gilbert as a winner and loser so far bendon and reggie davis we've had some people chirpin for this. He is a friend of the show. Our third winner. Israel mu cuomo. Look good. I mean this was a nice you know. Nice debut game for israel mukhwana. We saw some of that length. We saw some nice. Pb us we by the way. If we're talking about gear talking about ben dina. Cheese helmet is removed. You look sick with all the response. I mean that's like a true classic safety But you know all that aside. This was a nice debut game for israel. Mukhwana has big red two forty-three agrees so does laissez williams with some fire emojis. Look if if you go into this and you think that anybody is anybody who's a later round draft pick anybody who's further down the roster is going to like really impressive really jumped out. That's not going to be the case. We're looking for incremental growth. And we saw that is remove cuomo. We saw what dan quinn saw. We saw that length we saw that size. We saw that overall competitive athletic package. And that's a really positive thing you know in the lead up to this game doing different podcasts. And things like that one of the things that i said. You're on the youtube channel as well. We do a preview show every week was. I want to see this defense specifically. These players is removed. Qualm in sean. Right pop we wanna see that because they are proof of concept when the dallas cowboys. Took the sean right. We all sat here. We live you know then during the nfl draft. We wonder like what do they do. Nobody's ever heard of this guy before and then when they took those people kind of came around and we all obviously understood that dan. Quinn was getting the guys you live from a physical perspective. Running kelly says in the sean right was impressive to me. I agree with you but we need to see right. We need to see it to fully believe to fully agree that this is something. That's going to work out for the cowboys. And so seeing it really justifies that. Dan quinn's vision for the cowboys is headed in the right direction. Baru wedding says hard agree on cuomo. I thought he had a good game. also says been rooting for him since his moment of draft video. Definitely somebody who's easy to root for if you haven't seen the echo back on our channel and watch. We interviewed him the day after he was drafted. He was just so much fun. Lots of people. Mentioning the sean right. We do not have him as a winner but aschiana right did play because look if it's five winners five losers. You've gotta have the cutoff when somewhere but in the sean right did play. well can't believe the chase claiborne. Catch was not called a push off. That's a push off if i've ever seen one in the nfl. I tweeted a clip of that. Are a rather graphic of that but that will come. Sean right you know. Hey that's and chase clay bull. He's got we all know that. But congratulations is one of our winners. Let's go let's go to another loser. Okay we've got. We've got to nucci as the captain of the losers right now. We have reggie davis and this one stop. This is a little bit frightening I saw a tweet during the game from the athletics john. Mishota about how. It really is amazing. How badly the cowboys need tyron. Smith and lyle collins in terms of their endeavors to have success. There's no doubt tyrant and lyell means so much to the cowboys and what they want to do and what they want to accomplish. So we all know. Obviously they're both coming off of injuries and so we all know that security for them from a depth perspective is very important. We all know that the cowboys did not necessarily have that. Last year in brandon knight or steel in terms of again the two thousand twenty seasons specifically. So we all had a high level of hope. That tie in seki was going to be somebody that would help stabilize things. As a potential swing tackle not on thursday night. It was a rough. And i thought for tie in seki as big red agrees. Yeah i just you know it was. It was not what you want to see. It would be one thing if we were having this conversation after the third preseason game because there's obviously four even after the last one but the fact that tien sec. He's already kind of giving us. Hesitation is a little bit concerning he was signed to be that swing tackle player He was signed to be that extra point of depth. That bridge so to speak between whether you believe still are tackles at the future for the cowboys and this current point in time but it was not a great debut game as a dallas cowboy I had a lot of horrible flashbacks. As i'm sure you did as seeing Number seventy nine tackle for the cowboys. Just stand there. While their quarterback sacks gave me lots of shades of november twelfth. two thousand seventeen So yeah if you don't know what that was. That was the day of adrian clayborn so Sorry i had to bring that up but Wedding says not have faith in him. He's a thirty six year old journeyman. Yeah i mean you know definitely Definitely not something that you know. I think inspired a lot of faith but still you know it made some sense And the cowboys only had somebody resources and so there was. There was some reason to be hopeful in this battalion. Second not opt to the right. Start with the dallas cowboys. Melvin says candy was solid. I think talking about maurice kennedy. We do not have him as a winner. But it was a really nice game for moist kennedy and a really really nice debut game early for moyes kennedy because again. We've talked so much about how. Mike parsons opted out. Last season in penn state maurice kennedy. I think his journey gets forgotten with the cowboys. I do kind of like the nickname candy by the way for him. But moi's kennedy did not play a lot with the new york jets. The cowboys signed him last year. After mike mccarthy i took over pro football focus things highly thought highly of his two thousand nine hundred in from an overall defensive grade perspective And so he was an interesting player and interesting kind of case study with mike mccarthy's devotion to analytics and so it was going to be really interesting to see how he played out last season but obviously he opted up and so for him to come in and play this well early on. It's really encouraging. He had some really great almost moments. And i know that you know almost only counts in horseshoes or whatever it is but in the preseason almost moments matter and almost moments are indicative that there is something there to really like to really be hopeful and optimistic about so look i mean morris kennedy not a winner again but i think somebody that you know we should feel really good about moving forward But yeah by the way. Hyman says got my hat today in the mail just in time for the game things high male one of our winners after we pass ten thousand subscribers here on the bottom of the boy's youtube channel we will do giveaways like that as we continue to make milestones rather pass milestones. So thanks for being a viewer. But so let's get you another winner on the list. So far we've got mike parsons garrett gilbert and israel mu quam recode at i i mean i think rico is a winner and if you don't think that why are what do you think here because data. That's your your thoughts if you're watching on you if you're on facebook We are podcasting this conversation after the facts. If you're listening to the podcast you can still shout it out loud wherever you are but we go down. I thought played. Well we know that. This back belongs to zeke elliott. We know obviously that tony part is going to be the guy that supplements but redoubtable is making a case to be on the roster as well. Eric montoya says rico rb. Three matthew davis says i loved rico again it was really nice. Debut game for rico. Data led the team inquiries. Eight of them for forty three yards. Five point four yards or carry not a large sample size. We're talking about eight yards. So nothing to totally freak out about ben nucci as you can see was the second leading rusher with two attempts for seventeen yards some of that inflated near the very end of the penultimate play of the game for the cowboys brendan knocks for carey's twelve yards Tony pollard only had two carries for nine yards. But so i think rico dowdell definitely. It's hard to say anybody cemented their place on the roster after the first of four preseason games but i mean it he went along with. You need that guy. Alex's data ran hard he deserves to be number three totally agree with you. We've got jacobson's rico. Data rb three roberts says rico did grade should be roster. Lock very much agree. Matthew davis says we honestly need to marry him. Barbara type. that's true. That's definitely an element of the cowboys running game. That is missing but rico data. Congratulations on being are. What is his third winner fourth winter. We've got four winners and three loser. So far which means we have to get to another one By the way alec says i would challenge number twenty and thirty four forty. Battling it out. That's a bowl. take my friend. And there's a lot of people who believe in tony polar to coming out strong two thousand twenty one so you know. I mean if that happens. I mean look. I'm down to feed everybody feed all running backs. Let everybody have their sheriff touches because that's an effective way to play in the nfl. Just ask how shanahan by the way on the subject of cash and it was interesting. If you didn't watch the broadcast john lynch not shanahan. But obviously the general manager in san francisco happened to be in the booth with troy aikman and joe buck when semi fajr oko was targeted. He mentioned that the forty niners had some interest in semi for ho during the two thousand twenty one. nfl draft. So that's cool but magic says rico is nowhere near tony pollard. Maybe let's let's be optimistic. Brian i liked this. Brian says a winner cowboys fans. Football is back baby. That's the thing like. I know we're all kind of sitting here. We're all little bit frustrated over certain things whatever tiny little details but the fact that we are sitting here at live after it was football game in talking with one another about it. I mean it just feels so good and in case you are new here new to the blog and the boys universe we will be going live after every single dallas cowboys game this season. We hope to be a part of your weekly tradition as we all enjoy. America's team going seventy no and winning their seventh super bowl. Set will win their seventh one extra opposite six i. But let's define good steph stephanie. Excuse me says what about the tide and number eighty four. He did real good. That's right Sean mcewen did do great. You know didn't have a huge performance. Like i think any of us really thought they did. In fact let's get are receiving leaders at pier for you with a super fancy stat machine We can do this all right. Receiving leaders for the dallas cowboys in the pro football hall of fame game. Molly turner four catches for forty seven yards. Erin parker park for thirty. Nine cedrick wilson had some nice moments only two catches but i thought cedric looked great. We all certainly have a lot of high hopes for cedric. Had a nice start to the season last year before dak prescott got her there. You see sean. Two catches twenty six yards. Nice fight on the. I catch thirteen yards per catch will certainly take that all the time. Brennan eagles had the big catch. One catch for twenty five yards. Cyo got in the mix one catch seventeen yards. Rico had a hard day's work there as well don't scholtz who by the way had a nice moustache that we saw during the broadcast one catch for fifteen yards Christopher says that sean is a lot for the third tight ends by i agree now. Jacobs says rj. I'm worried look terrible. Backup quarterback look terrible. What do we do. We don't panic. it's the first preseason game. I agree that you know indonesia now that great. The secondary offensive line is a concern and connor williams. We've been hearing so much about and seeing so much in discussing all about how he is practicing the team's backup center. There was some high snaps you know. And that's not what you wanna see if carter williams has to play center in a pinch. I don't know that. I feel confident in as i did before this game. Just one preseason game so that's the thing we can't really freak out. There are things that we definitely know. Don't get me wrong ben. Nucci is not part of the picture here but we also knew that right so there are some things that we know. There are some things that were leaning strongly in favor of and there are some things that we need more data. There are some things that we need to see more. Collect more information before we can make a full and accurate analysis. But i mentioned we have four winners. We now have three losers benvenuti. Reggie davis tie in seki Speaking of the reserve offensive lineman for the dallas cowboys are fourth. Loser brandon knight. Not a great night for brandon knight Somebody who played tackle for the cowboys a lot. Last season has been playing some guards for far. This is my dog thank you. My dog's name is bear. He likes to be part of the show appreciate it. There's a recliner in my office. He likes to sleep here but he gets jealous. He wants attention So it is what it is. Thank you very much bear they understand. You were not fond brandon but brandon knight You know and i. I don't know it's interestingly. The cowboys are playing him at guard. I'm just seeing where he lines up. He's still really young and his. Nfl career is entering his third season. You know so. There's no way we can totally make a huge again determination off of who he is but it was not a good night and brand is kind of emblematic of this idea. In general magic gardens is high. Appreciate it better you go. You got your attention. But we've got elvis's brandon knight declines every season and that's tough for an undrafted free agent. You're not gonna stick around too long support for this episode comes from forward. Most people go to the doctor for the one offs like rashes and colds.

Mobile dot com. Alex has night is terrible. Just give gone from mexico. Wraps isaac Gone part of the nfl's international pathway program. We got a lot of questions about him. I live in the valley in texas. So i've got a lot of questions about him. Locally here is from mexico and certainly a great story rooting for him. I would honestly. I wouldn't bet but i would think that the cowboys probably want the cowboys afforded an extra roster spot for him on their practice squad because of the rules associated with the nfl's international pathway programs. The cowboys can keep him on their practice squad at no cost. And so that's when you say no cost that's kind of the way the to roll so i do ultimately think that they will lean in that direction but i definitely want to see is it gets some more reps. I definitely want to see him. Active in the preseason. I definitely at this point. Would like to see him over brandon knight. I do think that we have seen enough from brandon. I agree with kevin that isaac did or did find a guard. I mean there's no there's no harm in this this point like there's no high level of attachment to brandon knight. There's no reason to cowboys. Should feel like they have to keep going down this path. And that's i think what the troubling thing that that's why the tien seki being a loser. Thing is so concerning because outside of and brandon your only option if tyron smith or lyle collins go down and some people say that is an if question. That's more of a wind question. Is taryn steel. And so that's tough cookies. If you're dealing with a reality where taryn steal is your go-to in the event of an emergency because that is likely going to be an emergency that ultimately shows itself because of the state tyron smith and lau collins are that the state stage. They're at in their nfl careers. Not just in general. But now that we're at a point where there are seventeen games in the regular season as opposed to sixteen baru weddings is i'll have gone seem to have a good night. I agree off the i watch. Obviously all of us have only seen the game. What's off the tv copy We will definitely. If you're new log on the boys stratosphere we will definitely have some analysis that comes out in the coming days as we take a deeper dive as we watch the game. A couple of times will definitely discuss olive. Garden will definitely discuss them off. Line options because it's clear that as a weak and shaky point for this team and that was really obvious even their first preseason game. David medina's josh ball to josh paldon. Even make the trip you know for this game. The cowboys whispered the fourth round jaffna. Gone him somebody who had a lot of off the field concerns and so the fact that he's not even involved it is concerning from just a football standpoint let alone everything that he has going on off of the field as mentioned magic says pushing for all i've gone couldn't agree with you more so we now have four winners for losers. I take a swig of my rupiah. This is not a sponsor of us. It's just delicious. I highly recommended. My wife gets these me. They are diet in w root beers they therefore they have no calories when you sit at a desk all day. It's nice to have something that is of no cowards. We need a fifth winner So far if you joined a slate are winners from the cowboys. Preseason debut game. Mike parsons garrett gilbert israel kwame rico and a lot of you bring up about him so far quinton bohana. I thought the queen bohana had a really nice first game for the cowboys. We didn't see any big splash plays nothing. That's going to be a highlight. In fact this was a game really void of highlights in a lot of ways By the way we will be doing highlight videos for you every week here on the bulk of the west youtube channel if it is an obvious we know we're working our tails off because we love you and we wanna do that. We're excited. I mean football season and it's a really exciting thing But so there were not a lot of splash plays but there were a lot of moments to sound like a coach. I guess or you know the coach in in the case of jason Apparently wants to go by coach. I thought that. I thought though quinn bohana showed a lot of hustle tonight. I thought the quin bohana really was active. We saw that athleticism. We saw him chasing to get back into place after things got behind him. And that's not something you necessarily see from your true. Traditional one tech defensive tackles and so we've heard a lot about how athletically we saw obviously a kentucky. We know that there's a lot of that within quinn bohana so was nice justification on the draft process to ultimately see their play itself out. We've got baru says ya'aseh bohana we've got rama. Blue says bohannon with a couple of exclamation points. Gary ross says bohana had tackle for a like a five yard loss. We've got melvin says. Bohana drew multiple. Double coverages and brian says especially at three thirty plus do the fast. Seo says bohana was fast. You know the first touchdown the pittsburgh got bohana through obviously. Didn't make the tackle and touchdown happens and stuff. You kind of overlooked that play. But that's something. I again when we re watch. I really think will be even more impressive. Quinn bohana i think you really really stepped up and really kind of this defensive. Tackle rotation is interesting. Because we i think we all believe that neville gallimore is the best defensive tackle on the cowboys roster right like a controversial statement in in any sense and so after that we're looking at who's number two because just hill still on the pup list and a candidate to start the season the actual regular season on the pup list. We didn't see a lot of brent. Urban tonight's i think that was a little bit disappointing. Not that it's prince fall. But he's somebody who. I think we've all been kind of waiting to see flash through camp and whatever at this point and so you know the snaps are going to beat it for from quinton bohana and i agree with lemon highlight says so was pretty good. Did he had some nice moments too. And we can only pick five winners. And so that's the case you're so bohannon repping for this. Year is rookie defensive. Tackle draft class. But i mean this. This is encouraging. I mean you know. The cowboys refused for so long to invest in the defensive tackle position. And we've seen now over the last three seasons twenty nineteen second round draft pick tristan hill granted. That's influx right now. Last season third round pick gallimore this season third round. Pick zuid and you get bohana later on so now all of a sudden this position group is really ripe with young talent and the fact that we're seeing really showing itself is encouraging the oppressor library interesting. I like that says d. Line depth is fine. I agree with that. I think ultimately everything about the defensive line looks good. I don't have any qualms about it. It might be the deepest part of the defense. i know. there's a lot of depth that linebacker after your top guys. It does get a little bit. Shallow especially with francis bernard being on the mend right now on the subject by the way of linebacker death. We do have a common here. Let me see. Find this one Looking looking looking. I saw it a moment ago. About luke gifford Where is the lucas for. Comment here. brian says. Y'all don't like different. Remember luke different suspended for the first game of the season. not that. that's like the biggest deal or dealbreaker in any sense. But i mean i'm you know i'm not impressed and looking. It was awesome as a rookie as an undrafted free agent two years ago but at this point. I think we've seen we've seen enough. There are certain players we've seen enough of To draw a legitimate conclusion that we can feel safe and satisfied by luke. Effort hasn't popped at this point so i'm fine with you. Know i'm five with moving on if we really ultimately wanted to Let's see aco says honestly. The defense was awful. I saw flashes. I agree with you. I think that the look they allowed sixteen points. And i realized this is against you. Know backups and the like for the pittsburgh steelers so it's hard to properly but it was not the worst performance the the backup offense for the cavs. The backup backup. You know the cuba rush. Bend the nucci offense for the cowboys. What stalled this evening but thought defensively. The cowboys did a fine job of kind of being in things ultimately throughout the game I agree by the with. Aco that cox out more djibril cox. Somebody who hasn't flashed faren camp all too much. I thought kiana. Neil looked okay early on. I mean so. There are some saying like we don't need to waste time here on new gifford wish him well but anyway. So are five winners. Mike parsons garrett gilbert israel mukhwana rigo data quinn bohana. We do have at this point. Four losers listed benvenuti again. Nobody's going to. That's the easiest decision to come to tonight obviously Reggie davis the muffed punt. You can't do that especially when you're battling for a roster spot tie in sexy certainly makes us feel not so warm and cuddly about the offensive. Tackle that for the cowboys brandon knight. Same sort of thing the final loser although we can certainly talk about others but the one that i think we need to mention and this actually might fall more on the coaching staff. I saw a friend of the show. Dave helmet from dallas cowboys. Dot com. Tweet something to this effect but hundred nice wander. The kicker punter is fine. I don't think we have any issues. Or any qualms with hunter and ice wander the punter but one hundred nights wander the kicker now. I mean this was not a great game for ticking overall on either side. Dallas or pittsburgh but hunter. Nice wander the kicker we've seen enough you know we don't and that's that's the thing like if you're the coaching staff. If you're john fossil what are you doing. This is actually unfair. I think two hundred nice wander. Who's obviously trying to make team. Probably as the punter. Because if you're the cowboys you have a kicker in greg's who's on the publicity right now so why don't you putting him through this like. Why are you making hunter. And ice wander spin anytime if he's going to be your punter and now we're getting a little bit into the weeds with this idea but if the idea is that he's going to be your punter. Why are you having him spend even one moment of his day doing anything other than the thing that you were going to want him to do. Which is it's kind of hard to figure out. Now i understand you know you have so much belief in greg's land that you don't feel the need to bring anybody else into camp. Greg is on the. Maybe you think greg's coming back soon. Whatever we already know demarcus lawrence is off the place. Maybe greg's right behind him. I don't know but i mean what. Why why what are we doing here. Why are we wasting time with this. If i can't even call it a project. I mean it's it's silly to to have one hundred nights wander kick field goals. You're just wasting time. That's all you're doing. You're just sending everybody out there for the feeble attempt extra point attempt whatever. And it's just wasting everybody time. It's it's weird. I mean i now raymond disagree. Points is backup emergency kicker. So i like that idea rally. He's obviously got to be prepared for situation like that. I also think it makes more sense to have your emergency backup kicker be your punter as opposed to your starting safeties like we saw with the cowboys a few years ago. But this is my point with. I agree with sean ones. As good a kicker just to get through games and tells their line is back. Yeah i mean like that's you know if you wanna get a proper evaluation of the rest of your special teams. You need a kicker right like you need somebody who does this professionally. So last last loser for me that i've listed elliot's hunter nice onto the kicker punter is totally fine. Now let's get to your losers again. The the names we've named so we're looking for. Names are not these people as winners. We've got mica parsons. Garrett gilbert is removed cuomo recode out quinton bohana as losers. We've got benvenuti. Reggie davis tien. Seki brandon knight and hunter. Nice wander the kicker if you have a winner or a loser at that is not any of these players. Let us know right now. Let's discuss let's start with. Aco that says jalen smith was not impressive. Whoa shocking news in the year. Two thousand twenty one. This is not sarcasm Jalen smith is not impressive. The first play of the game. Jalen smith interrupted kelvin. joseph. And that's something. I think i don't know that that this was seen By too many. Because i play. We were all tom. Do you know maybe you were still sitting down. If you're still fixing their plate or your drink or whatever you know it's one play. I don't want to cherry pick bag on jalen but it felt a lot like last year is is not even felt a lot like the last couple of years for jalen so that was rough not a great debut for For jalen smith. Now a lot of you have. Said is melvin bald says anthony brown I mean you know. Yeah i agree. We have an article go out at bloggers dot com recently about. I actually think that goes out tomorrow. It's been a busy day. So things were jumbled in my mind about and so actually let's put this. Let's put this question out to you. Then if you all think. I think i know what the answer is going to be. But if you all think this lowly of anthony brandon not unfair drilling says anthony. Brown didn't look good either. Now that we have seen maurice kennedy pop right. And i think we all believe in moist kennedy riot. We're trying so if we look at the corner depths on the cowboys roster right if we just out guys we know and you know put on the astra certainly ahead of anthony brat trayvon digs. We got kelvin. joseph kennedy. We've obviously got into sean right. That's four and then it's you know. Okay what about reggie robinson. Then we're starting to have some conversations. Do you really believe anthony brown enough to carry him. Whatever so the question we're tossing is and this is an if you could. We don't even know if you could but if you could let's call it a sixth round pick yes or no would you trade anthony. Browne baron says anthony brown needs to go. So we'll say a sixth round. Pick hypothetical hypothetical price for anthony. Browne or no. If you're watching live with us on youtube or facebook subscribe to the bottom. Was youtube channel like us on facebook. Poor for would you trade anthony brown for a two thousand twenty two sixth round pick christopher lopez. Yes alex roberto says. Cut brown so think i know what that means. Baru adding says not. Yes or not yet. Excuse me. brian brown brownies to prove himself going forward. Because right and kennedy looked much better than him. Jalen says yes. Aaron says yes Vernon kelly says reggie robinson will likely get cut. I agree with us unfortunately. Although had a nice ended the game clifton says yes We've got here. Let's see have lost my comment now that i was going towards your And jacob says that's what we drafted with bin we that's right. Anthony brown was a sixth round. Pick in two thousand sixteen one of three six round picks. We talked about recode data. Going off don't forget about the true rico. The og rico galleries also sixth round. Pick in two thousand sixteen. Melvin says no John says brown goes immediately. Ale says yes we've got. Darwin says yes. Don says no texas trojans as trade brown for some moreland f. I mean. I don't think there's anything there to be had. Honestly we've got dat boy. Dis has no. This is the tape. I agree with mostly. Jose says no with an extra game need as many cornerbacks as possible. We have seen the cowboys be challenged from a depth perspective last year by football outsiders adjusted games lost metric which calculates the number of games that each team lost due to injury last obviously a unique season with player or teams losing players due to being on the kovin list but the cowboys lost the second most games in the nfl due to injury last year. Now there is some standard normal regression to the mean that will ultimately happened here in two thousand and twenty one but that is proof. We have just lived. You know recent proof of how quickly you can be challenged from a depth perspective By the way. Dennis brown had some flashes. I look i think puts branch serviceable. I would keep him. That's the thing like i get your frustrated with him. You the viewer. Whoever you are. You're very special to me but i. I don't think that it's worth now. He's in line to start at the present time and that's concerning by the way troy aikman on the broadcast. Love troy love to see him where the gold jacket loved to see all the moments and everything that happened. And i i have no idea where a troy what depth chart choice saw where he said in sean reid was listed as a starter the cowboys did releasing unofficial depth. Chart ahead of this game. National right was not listed as a starter. That was an interesting moment from troy. But i i would hold on anthony brown. Just because he's that's the word he is serviceable now. Aol says right over brown tolerate totally fine but to have anthony brown. There is a bit of a luxury now. We didn't even mention john lewis. Who obviously didn't travel with the team so you have you have numbers there but those numbers can so quickly be tested and so at this point. I don't think it's worth it. Because that's what you're looking at like a sixth round pick. I don't think it's worth it. And so i think it's definitely worth holding. Definitely not worth freaking out so jon. Six thousand five. John has inspired an interesting question. John is in the running for our. Mvp this evening backup. Quarterback is the biggest concern. Not anthony brown. So i put it to you our loyal beautiful audience. What is the biggest concern that you have. The dallas cowboys. It can be a position. It could be an idea. It can be the perforations on benvenuti's helmet. What is your biggest concern. After twenty five percent of the preseason has now been completed we have now seen this team against another football team so we can draw some legitimate conclusions. And i think that the biggest concern for me. I'm curious to see your answers as you get them ready. Let's see here by barron's corner. One digs corner to kevin joseph a list of suing. Darwin says backup quarterback. That is not my answer. I mean there is a there is a point where that is concerned. It's definitely up there for me. Tom more legendary colts offensive. Coordinator used to say that they didn't practice. And i'm sure you've heard this a million times but didn't practice with their backup quarterbacks in indianapolis because peyton manning went down. They were screwed. He didn't say that word. He's canals and that they didn't practice screw. That makes sense right. Like make sensitive dak prescott. Goes down the cowboys season over again. We just live if that guy goes down for a game. Two games then yeah. I'm definitely concerned about who the backup. Quarterbacks is here. Because i don't know that i have faith that garrett gilbert can lead team to a win but my top concern right now. I agree with brian o. Line depth line depth is my top concern. Ailsa swing tackles my biggest worry. Also we've also got here. Jared says swing tackle big concern but hoping we don't have to worry about it. I mean that's the biggest concern to me is right now. This and this is the way the cowboys have been constructed for. A long time is if everything goes well if everything goes right if everything goes according to plan especially along the injury front is in. Nobody gets injured. If we're looking at an offensive line we can. And we gotta tyrant connor williams be. Amish zack. martin and lyle collins at right tackle. We all believe in that. Nobody is losing sleep over that but the moment that that depth becomes challenged. This team falls apart and granted. Dak prescott was not in there tonight. A great quarterback act prescott mask and overcome some deficiencies along the offensive line. But the fact that there is nothing to really offer there at least at present time. Maybe italian second surprises us next week against the cardinals. Maybe brandon knight gets better at tackle because we saw plane guard. Maybe taryn steal. Plays better tackle. Maybe josh ball comes in. That's a lot of maybes though in know that you know if anything's giving me indigestion right now it's not that root beer. It's the fact that the cowboys don't have depth. That feels reliable along the offensive line. And that's a really concerning thing. So you know that can be fixed. That can potentially get better. Melvin says terrence deal is trash. I mean i'm not that's not incorrect. Let's see td weedy. Let's go everybody with an emoji. I'm in that kind of mood. Nandor swigert root beer has inspired me. How do you think health been. Joseph did i think your auto cuts and interesting. Autocorrect correction from kelvin. Detective and your emoji. Reaction to kelvin. Joseph's first game with the dallas cowboys. I think mine is probably the like sinking emoji. You know the one that's like grabbing its chin Because you know again i play. The game gets wiped out by teammate. And jalen smith but i thought he was. Okay i mean but there is a lot you know. I talked about earlier. How the proof of concept is writing on nissan. Right and israel removed. O'brien offers us. The same emoji dustin. Ooh i liked this. Dustin has the money emoji like the dollar sign david. I think this was kind of terrible suggestion for me as the host. I apologize because i can't totally cd's So that's that's my bad. That's how me. But i think i lost david david. I think it's a struggle. It's really tiny to see Baru says wash hands Oh i think that's maybe like you know like getting excited washing your hands. I see erica. Says eric has like a kind of inquisitive. Lou it's like the you know and i think that's where we're at like we're we're just kind of we're kind of not totally impressed you and that's okay like there's just the fact coven justin didn't like knock our socks. It's totally fine first. Preseason game but i do believe like i was saying that you know there is a proof of concept weighing on sean right and as roma cuomo. There is a lot riding on kelvin. Joseph because we know certainly now that mike parsons is going to live up to the draft. Cool show great about that. But kelvin. Joseph was supposed to be the supplement like kelvin joseph when we watched the nfl draft a few months ago. We all left the second round saying. Okay we actually. We all entered the second round saying okay. We got mike parsons. It's okay you know. Patrick's tan was gone. Jc horn was gone. What could they do about it. So they took micro. Parsons okay cool. Give us an answer. The answer is supposed to be held. And joseph now. It's unfair to kelvin. Joseph to say he has to be patrick's retain jc home. That's unfair and we're not saying that there is a lot riding on the idea of calvin joseph being the like supplement to mike. Parsons and we haven't seen that yet. But that's normal right. And so i think well i think what we saw from calvin joseph for standard. And that's okay. You know it is what it is. Slime says y'all want jc with crying laughing. Hell yeah i want. Jc horn who. Who of course who's going to lie about this. We all want. Jc horn so something that we haven't talked about yet that is important. I mean i can't believe we haven't gotten here yet and we'll get back to the game in a second but before the game before all the action before bendon uchi pissed everybody off jerry. Jones was onset on fox with troy the whole gang the whole crew. Of course jimmy johnson. Who's entering the pro hall of fame on saturday. Was there and jerry. You know a few weeks ago. The first press conference and he said he screwed up again he did not say the word screwed with jimmy. Johns we all like. Wow this dude finally admitted it. Jerry said that he didn't want to take away from jimmy's hall of fame. Enshrinement by talking about the ring. Honor if you somehow jimmy johnson now in the pro football hall of fame not in the dallas covering on it. Well jerry was asked about this and then a true jerry. Jones way noted that jimmy johnson is going to be headed into the dallas cowboys. Ring of honor cowboy fans are asking right now jerry. When are you gonna put jimmy in the ring with a hunter i think it's fair to say Shell bride here or absolute house. We've got time. We got plenty of time. Big game. I think we can go. I think we got some great days ahead of us. How we are going to certainly recognizing what's happening here with the hall of fame But tex ram who started entering a bomb. Jerry keep it keep it kinda limited with people but make sure one just about the place they may make. Sure thank contributed told the story of the franchise. That's kind of hard to not recognize this contributions the story of the french. So are we making an announcement here. Well we can be can. I don't know how we're going to upstate. You get paid for very go lobby hurted here going to be able to make it through this all very cool moment. I mean very cool definitely way too late for jimmy johnson to finally be put into the cowboys ring of honor but still very cool that it is finally happening. Nice to see jerry jimmy. You know having some good times definitely put you know hits you right in the fields etc Eric montoya's jimmy. Finally the ring i agree. I mean very very very cool Now i saw this while. The video was playing Mike mccarthy in his post game press conference has spoken about bend nucci. who was the quarterback. He's this is y'all's quarterback mike mccarthy's talking about check this out dallas cowboys head coach. Mike mccarthy on ben nucci and this is a quote. I thought she made some throws off his back foot. That were unique. So it's a long plane right back home. And i'm looking forward to watching the tape. I think it's going to be a lot of good things. I can tell you right now. Mike and ain't going to be much of that. I can tell you that it is not going to be what you think. I think that the that is a very kind. And empathetic way to describe Bent say was unique now. I know we're all having fun with this. Mike mccarthy is not about the trash quarterback on his team. You know so. Let's let's be clear here. i you know. Hey i mean if there's no way obviously we all heard the story last year. The mike mccarthy bendon news you connected pennsylvania thing meeting him at the omni Whatever i don't like to say this what this comment says. But i think this is fair chariot transportation 'dinu she doesn't belong in the nfl again. I really don't like to say that about players but I mean yeah. This is rough very very very rough indeed and look again. It was fair to to assume that there was more to come from the new chapter last because look the guy was the seventh round rookie in a covert season. You know with nothing. No preseason no camp whatever blah blah and so the fact that he's had all this Time now and isn't you know isn't a better place. Disappointing john with a question. I don't think any of us can answer. Who are the worst players in camp. Besides the nucci. It is possible that the new jersey is the ninety. We'll say the ninetieth best player on the cowboys roster. I think that's the way. I wanna put it. Alex who's working hard fresh as watching the game specifically o. Line on the left side without going seems to be doing a lot better than the right. I think the new cheat needs time behind the ones. He did better in the hurry up now to be clear here so nobody jumps on alex. Alex saying the benvenuti brennan for his life is not helping the cost but to nucci being afforded the benefit of the starting offensive line. Having that time to process having that time to think could definitely go along way. I can see that argument. I just don't think that that opportunity is gonna come. I think that now if there is if we have fully line in the sand drawn any conclusions off of the first pro football hall of fame or the pro bowl in the first preseason game which is a dangerous thing to do. It's very dangerous to say what is going to completely make up our minds about certain things. I think there are two of those things. Two of those things that we can fully completely now settle in blocking samand build a brick house around. The first of those things is that ben nucci is not long for this team but benvenuti. Obviously you know beyond on the team for the racial and look you need. You need that cam you know. And that's okay you know. And and if he wants to be on the practice squad. that's fine. i mean you know. There's no harm in that by not part of this roster like he was last season i think that is something that we have definitely learned. I want to kind of put the final bow on things with this the most important football thing that we learned on thursday night while we know obviously that there were no injuries. And that's definitely the most important thing the most important thing is that the winner of all winners. mike parsons. that's the most important thing because this proves that the first round pick the biggest resource that was spent this off season a top ten pick because when we went into the draft we said you have top. Ten pick cowboys. You have to come away with somebody who is going to make your team special. That is the challenge where they top ten pick and it seems like the cowboys have done that with. mike parsons. We played it earlier in the stream and play for you one more time. The fact that michael. I know you didn't cause the fumble but the fact that he recovered the fumble is very encouraging a very positive step in the right direction. Cowboys look like it. Got on top of it and they did. Mike parsons the rookie. First round pick is there to get the fumble and it's an early turnover as klay pool. Never got it from mason rudolph. There's that's that's enough to feel good. That's enough to feel like this was a good day. It was a good day. But i was playing football game today. And so you know. We're going to figure all this stuff out we're going to get back on the grind. The dallas cowboys are traveling on friday. They'll have a practice with the rams on saturday.

Trey Wingo The Kilcoyne Conversation

"Sort of interesting. How you sometimes think you know somebody really well and get along but you think back and you know you'd never worked together. Don't really know each other that well for me. Trey wingo go is one of those guys. I knew of him. He was in saint. Louis i was working in other markets but it was my hometown so i kept tabs on what was happening around here. Trey was at. Kay's decay channel five in saint louis from nineteen ninety one to nineteen ninety seven and i moved back home in the of ninety seven and we would talk and visit a bit out in the field as reporters. Maybe at rams park. Maybe a cardinal game and I just felt like we knew each other pretty well. I'd sima can't over the years covering different rams players going into the pro football hall of fame and We always seem to get along well but we really didn't know each other for a very long stretch here in saint louis but wanted to talk to him because he had a great run at espn. And what did talk about the early days for those who don't remember. Espn news was sorta like aaa. They would hire these anchors and if you did well at. Espn will then they bump you over to espn. And i'm sure it had to be a little bit cutthroat in for trae he got those reps over the espn. All of a sudden. He became sort of their nfl guy. And if alive. Nfl the draft hosting the coverage from the pro football hall of fame. every summer. we talk a little bit about the career at espn first time. He ran into chris. Berman which had to be sort of surreal as all the kids that we were grown up watching. Espn and for trae. It happened in the bathroom in bristol. Connecticut former high school classmate of Steve young or at least same high school. there. I think a year apart New that believe it or not. We do a little research on the kilcoyne conversation. So trey wingo formerly south of espn and that's That's part of the topic as well. What happened at the end. He was doing radio wing. Go look replacing. The mike and mike show that have been on for like two decades and maybe trae was a little too honest not wanting to do morning radio. He talks about that. What goes into doing that job on a national level Fun espn stories also. What's next sort of a deep teas. That he's got a lot of things potentially coming down the road And his time in saint louis was not a glorious sports time. Certainly the blues and brad hall. Were the story. The cardinals were down at that stretch although the russa came. You're right at the end of trays. Time in saint louis but baseball cardinals weren't very good. Football cardinals laughed. Trae covered some of those expansion meetings when they didn't get thee stallion's and was here for the beginning of the football rams and you know as we discussed. They weren't very good. He's has saint louis mansion. Thank him for leaving. Because once he left things picked up for natalie the rams but the baseball cardinals. And i guess eventually with the blues winning a stanley cup so trey wingo is our guest kilcoyne conversation.

It's real simple. Their savings are your savings all right. Let's get to the conversation this week. Which ray winco trae. I thought i knew a lot about you. But and this is probably a well known fact but did i miss the fact that you steve young with to high school together is this. Like cap nabis Does everyone know this i. I don't know if everyone knows it. But i always like to say stephen. I went to the same building but we were in different schools. Like steve you know was the captain of everything and all this kind of stuff and he was a year ahead of me. And i was not captain everything high school so like we were in the same building but we went to different schools. That's the best way to describe it about the first time i saw him in bristol. You go up to him and say hey. Remember me. It gets better. It goes back to st louis. Were playing busch stadium now and they had those When did you get to saint louis. I can't remember so. I got here in july of ninety seven and i got to know you a little bit and then you were left like months later. Did you leave in like november ninety seven november ninety seven so anyway this was the first year they were there and it was one thousand nine hundred five and the the forty niners for come into play and we're planet busch stadium and My wife is also from greenwich and went to high school together and she and And steve were in the same class. There were year ahead of me. So actually jeff. Gordon wrote about this in the saint. Louis post dispatch back in the day. It was pretty funny. So she's on. The field and steve is not playing. Because he's injured. And elvis quarterback played in that game. Where ken norton i think at to pick sixes and they just destroyed the rams but she waves up to stephen steve like oh janice how are you comes down. Gives her a hug. And all this kind of stuff. I woke up like ten minutes later. I'm like hey. Steve trey wingo in high schools. Like yeah. I don't know who you are. Cool thanks man. Appreciate it appreciate it so i had to remind him actually the first time i had a live shot with him. It was super bowl. Thirty four thirty six in in new orleans. And it's like you know we went to high school together. They get out here. So yeah the we like. I said we were in the same building. But we're in different orbits. How great is that for your wife because her whole life. It's probably oh. Are you married to trae or your husband. And he knows my husband like it's good for her to have that moment. Well look she she has she should have all the moments for lack of a better term. Went to cornell did not. She was a lifeguard. I was not. She was the athlete. I was not so. Yeah but it gets even better. Because we're getting off on tangent here but you need to understand the power couple at my high. School was steve young to korpi. Mr. byu and and became at that time to forty million dollar quarterback for the usfl l. before going on to fame and glory in hall of fame with the forty niners. He dated a girl in nineteen in the early eighties. Her name christy pfiffner. Now that name probably means nothing to you. But in nineteen eighty six christie fisher beat out among other finalists. Halle berry to wear the crown of miss. Usa and went onto be runner up miss universe that year so the power couple of my high school was future hall of fame quarterback steve young and former miss usa runner up. Miss universe christy. Fichtner the rest of us never had a chance. Let it rod stewart says. Some guys have all the luck right. Yeah melissa. I like to remind stephen that every once in august i knew where she lived. I've always said this to ozzie. Smith he went to high school with eddie murray so they go to the say. Hey what's up. Everybody on the hall of fame baseball. I like the guy over. There is to its. I what isn't eddie. Murray the the biggest switch hitter in the hall of fame day as the most hits from any switchover. And all which. Probably again ozzy being a switch genders like gabby on that we can. We have a separate reunion. Women were here though. It was kind of a dead era. Wasn't it because there was no nfl for the first years and the party's were bad during that you left. Just as sort of the cardinals. Were getting good. I guess what's most memorable. There was it kinda hole in the blues. Yeah without question you know it was. It was the hall and oates era And adam got traded. While we were there i mean i always tell people in saint louis ache. You're welcome for me leaving because that's really good starting to happen. You know like the The year after i left i think the blues won the presidents trophy for the most points in the nhl ordinal started winning again although they did go to the nfc s that year in ninety six against the brave. I think we're up three one in gag it away if i'm not mistaken. Zen the rams game and they were terrible But you know right after. I left the greatest show on turf started going. So you're welcome. I left and things got better with a name lingo. By the way are there any kids named trae that are not the third. Is it possible. It's possible but it would be dumb like i mean. I don't know why you would go down that road otherwise like my whole life as you know my full name is how chapman wingo the third which is just a obnoxious and be awful and like the first day of school was always the worst. Is there a how chapman wingo third here. Yes that's me. But i go by trae. What it's a long story. I always wanted to be joe. Jim rome martin just to make it easier for everybody. I get a lot of milton's and marvin hard name. But i get people amer that i've just into debt named trey wingo. It feels like an extra and brock meyer. Like you should have been a sports. Get bet name. You were destined. When did you decide. This was your patch. Well in high school. We started this little show and we started doing Like weekly updates from the old av department and We we we broadcast football games and basketball games in which steve start in all of them. So that's what. I thought i want to do it. And then i went to college in I took a far ninety degree or even one eighty turn and i the colleges were much more social than anything else for me. Which probably didn't help me. But then i graduated from college. I don't want to do this. Sucks morgan nights and weekends. That's no fun. So i got an office job in washington. Dc it account executive for a pr firm called rogers and cowan and my my boss. At the time was woman named mabel. H mufti brandon. She was the former press secretary for nancy. Reagan and now. I find myself like trying to do pr. But every day. I would lock myself in my office and just read all the sports articles i could. I was like screw this. I'm gonna try this anyway and moved back in my parents basement. Got a job as a page at nbc and then sent out a tape and that's how it started when you went to espn. I mean they were already. They were a monster. But at the time wasn't spn news sorta like i won't say aaa that's not fair. It was but like if you did well there then you got to move over to the big set right and was looking around like hey. I'm going to get to the big leagues. That was sort of the plan. But i mean what was really weird for me. I had been saint-louis less than a year. And i'd come back from doing some story on a local high school track star nano viana high or something like that. This is an aug ninety. Two and i've gotten their november ninety one and i had this is before the internet and voice mail kids. There were things that existed before the internet and cell phones and i had a little sticky notes on my Those pink notepad you know that. Say hey so and so called message patent it said. Please call al jaffee area code two or three. Well i knew two or three was connecticut's who the hell is calling me from connecticut. And then i realized holy bleep. That's al jaffee. He's the talent coordinator for espn. I had not sent them a tape. Someone else had sent them a tape of me. I didn't have an agent at that point. And they're like yeah. We were launching this thing called. Espn two and we wanna we'd like to talk to you about Coming up in auditioning fantastic and he goes but you know are you under contract under contract. He goes well. We need your Station to sign off on it because otherwise tortures interference. Bob bob a blob sunlight. A problem. i mean. I'm i'm not even the weekend guy here. I'm the third guy in the rotation here. So i'm just fill in dude so it should be an issue and they would not let me go case decay. Shot that down. It's like well we do it for you. We'd have to do it for everybody. Which is total crap and You know it wasn't like everyone else is getting an offer. Go to a national cable station. So i was denied entry in nineteen ninety-two before i finally got up there when he. Espn news started in nineteen ninety-seven and i'll never forget because they did vacation request by priority like by seniority on the list and every year when that bleep enlist came out. I would look at where. I would have been on the vacation priority list if i'd gotten their ninety two instead of ninety seven i'm like son of i would have been. I would have the pick of whatever. I wanted if i'd been here. One thousand nine hundred nineteen ninety-seven. Y'all take that three day swing tober if that's okay. It did change things. Dramatically in the one upper. Although i guess all sports guys are went up my favorite and it doesn't want up that. But my favorite pink slip were while you were out which kids again woah. I'm working in edison wisconsin. And i come in on a monday. And there's a note on my desk while you're out tom farley. Call and i'm like it is chris's dad Fully should chris farley dead cold in all back consumer from madison the farley fan and this guy answers the phone and i'm telling you he's the down by the river guys. Are you doing tom. chris. Debt and i'm like oh my god great great to hear what what's up. He all the weekend. You guys show the clip. Chris got like an honorary degree at marquette or something in the weekend. I was the weekends or it's got in the last story. I sit out there at the news anchor in. Yuck it up was a clip of him getting this degree and his dad goes. We're watching the news and there you guys are than the show. The big on the cold. On chris farley sitting watching w i s e channel three weeks and the dad wanted a clip because it was such a distinguished moment for. Chris wasn't always distinguished. Right i said you know. You're i go. Chris older than me i said but is a picture him at the avalanche or i'll never forget. His dad cuts me off and offer. God's sakes was he wearing any pants in the picture and could not. I'll never get out of my head at that. Was hundred percent the down by the river to you which is what this is about him but he has been and you walk in the door. Do you see. Chris berman or dan patrick in the hallway or the cafeteria. And now you're on the team but they don't know you. how would intimidating i. well sure. I mean chris. Berman was one of the reasons. I wanted to get into the business and i had. I've met him a couple of times. busch stadium when he was down calling cardinal games or he think they shot some commercials down there with him so like one of my first days in the first week And you'll you'll appreciate this. I'm in the men's bathroom and boomer comes in and like chris you don't remember me. I'm trey wingo. I'm new here from saint louis. And he goes you and a guy told me about the cheddar. Smokey's great job can cause one time at the press box stadium. He was in line is man. You gotta try to smoking's and for anybody that hasn't been press box of bush. Dave knows hotdogs village. Jesus frigging great jeter. Smokey's he remembered that. I had told him about the cheddar. Smokey's at busch stadium in the in the media. Dining i thought that was the coolest thing in the world. So when did you know they're gonna get a chance here. It's bigger wraps or hey like me. Well they never liked to tell you. They like one hundred percent clear about that. They prefer the opposite way. We don't like you at all. You're lucky to be here and you just have to deal with that but you know the big thing then was guys on is when the got an opportunity to the one. Am sportscenter on friday or saturday. Which is the which was the late show which is now done in los angeles with the studios there but that was the show that you know if you wait until all the Until all the highlights were done and then after you do a couple of those they get you on some one. Am shows during the week and those with shows that used to go on at one am and they would be on. The air constantly from one am until one pm the next day. So you would you would be on the entire time and You know when you started getting a couple of those. That's when you knew all right. I must be doing something right. And then you. Every month the schedule would come out and they. You'd like you'd see where you are and that was that was a big deal. And then. I started noticing that i was getting some baseball. Tonight's which which is. It's just so how crazy and how much the industry in change baseball barely on anymore But that was that was. Were two our baseball. Tonight's one at ten to eleven at before the eleven o'clock sportscenter and then one from twelve to one before the one. Am sportscenter and somebody pulled me aside and said hey just so. You know the putting on baseball tonight. That means they like they won't they won't tell you that but that means they like you because You know things are things are going. Well that's a show that everybody watches so when those things started popping up. That sounds like all right. I guess this is going all right and then you became the nfl for a long time. I'd see candidate. A rams player would go into the hall. You're old court up there. That had to be kind of surreal even just to be canton in looking around. And all these old timers in their blazers they all know who you are and wouldn't become sort of cemented as the nfl guy. Well listen They put me on the six o'clock sportscenter for two years and then they put me on. Nba tonight for a year. And i went to them and said look. I appreciate but i didn't come here to be the nba tonight got. It's not what i wanna do. I'd really like to do something else. And they started off alive in two thousand and three and it was nfl tonight before that with mark malone brawny paper towel guy and and so they said we want you to host nfl and that was in two thousand and three and everybody has a favorite sport. Right we all cover sports and we all like sports but there's always wants more than anything else in my sports. Football always love football specifically the nfl lower college. Football so to me. That was the greatest job ever like. I i worked when when nfl. I've started it was on tuesday through saturday. A half hour show on. Espn two the only five days of the week. At that point where there were no football games and we had floating schedule some days. We'd be on at six thirty at night. Some days we won at seven thirty. They just sort of fit in some tuesday afternoons saturday afternoons. We'd be on at three thirty in the afternoon and so we parlayed that into monday through. Friday hour-long gig four to five on espn. And when i tell you that was the greatest job of all time for me. That was the greatest job of all time. I mean the guys that i worked with on. Nfl alive March larry darren woodson. Tedy bruschi herm edwards ryan clark damien woody. What talking about guys that had multiple super bowl rings annuity took to win championships and we were very proud of what that show was. In what became. I mean we were an afterthought and we made it into must see tv and from that i got to. Nfl prime time for twelve years and obviously the draft so That was someone says to me. What was the most fun you had during your twenty three years at. Espn without question it was doing. Nfl live with that crew all the time because they were great. And we all hit it. Off and merril hodge timmy. Hasselback and rondo awards. I mean those guys are are still my friends. I still do. I go play golf with him all the time. And you know stinking your best friends to this day. Teddy comes down and plays golf with me here. I go up to his place like those friendships. Like there are three kinds of people. You work with right there your coworkers. Their friends and the boys and all those guys an nfl. I boys and and that was. That was the most fun i've ever had. And i'm not sure anything will ever top it. It because of that massive platform. Did you have moments whether you were back in saint louis or you're in chicago where somebody famous. This is like a kusamao quest. Right somebody famous. It's a isn't there famous elevator story. I'm going to probably get out of the bunch of those. But i'll tell the elevator story and some other stuff like the nba. All star game in atlanta was two thousand february. Two thousand and three and stuart scott hate. I'm having lunch with somebody. Come down to the hotel lunch mike. Okay sure and i walk in and stewart's sitting there with tiger woods and some people may know that i consider tiger the most dominant athlete ever in the history of all sports. And i i will. I will die on that hill. What he's able to do a sport that's non you can't dominate it. And he did it for so long. So i'm kind of freaking out. And so i kind of just sit down casually trying not to pretend like i'm freaking out and tigers. Hey trae i'm a a hey tiger what's up you know. And just sorta sit down for a few minutes. And then he has to leave and then stewart leave so then. I'm like freaking out that you know. Hey i sat down and had lunch with tiger and he knew who i was so i run the elevator bank and i have my old cellphone begin to call my dad. I'm calling my dad and the elevator doors open and you know i'm buried in my phone so i start walking into the elevator before people are walking out of the elevator and i slam into this giant human being and it looks me wingo. Watch where you're going. Sorry michael ads on me about about a ten minute stead. We went from tiger knowing william to michael jordan. Zing watch where you're going. And then when i finally got to tell my really called my dad and we had a good time with that one. That is very cool. You and your life. Because i feel like there might be a makers market night. There's probably a beautiful golf course in the morning. And this is during your. Espn days your post espn days. I feel like there's a decent chance of finding golf is. That's i'm looking at the fairway right there. Even as we speak teatime at two o'clock this afternoon my friend so yeah. I love golf. Golf is the ultimate challenge to me because boring. Golf is the best gov. But you never really feel that. Well when you're playing. Well you know what i mean. You're always waiting. I don't like what you're handicapped you would. I mean i honestly would probably shoot ninety five ninety eight okay. See i'm the worst. I'm like a nine. Because i think i'm really good but i'm really not so every time you're out there. You're just waiting for the wheels to fall off. But that's that's the allure of the sport to me. Like i can play three holes in a row the birdie three holes three or four holes and i still in break eighty you just for that collapsed all the time and it's such a mental challenge. And that's why what happened with phil. Yesterday was just absolutely ridiculous. Winning the pg. I don't know when this is airing. So we're doing this on monday sunday. Monday morning after the final round the pga. Championship sunday But that's that's the that's the beauty and the allure of the sport you you can never. Could you never control. You can just hold on for a little bit eventually. Longo away when you had a great tweet about the fill the magnitude or the historical context because defaults folks. Because it's trying to put it into a box like oh this is different. Yeah look people will always look at jackson at the eighty-six masters as incredible because he hadn't won since nineteen eighty when he won the major. Us open baltusrol and he came and shot thirty or thirty one on the back nine came back and won it and it was magic it was and then obviously what tiger dinner twenty nineteen from coming back from the back surgeries and you know his life falling apart finally winning that award Fifteenth major. What eleven years after his previous one. That was very emotional. But for being honest with ourselves like the masters is a limited field event. And if you played there enough and obviously guys like jack and tiger and everybody that gets an invite plays there at least once a year and they play a ton you like. Experience helps you at augusta question about it. Like tiger shot on sixteen twenty nineteen. What are essentially won the tournament by knocking close. It was the traditional sunday penny. Hit it up high to the right. Just on the hill to trickle down like you know how to do that. If you've played there a million times phil mickelson just one major at almost fifty one years old the oldest major winner ever on the longest golf course ever for a major at a course that you don't play once every ten years like the last time they had a major. There was twenty twelve when rory wanted. So there you're not going to the ocean course every year and you get a feel for the place. It was a beast and some of the best players in the world brooks kepco. Who's trying to win his third. Pj his last four outings. Which is ridiculous phil. Mickelson stood and withstood all of that to me. That was much more difficult. I'm not saying it was more impressive. Not saying it was more magical or emotional. Jack was magical. Tiger ripped at your heartstrings. But for what. Phil was able to do. And basically he had the lead essentially the entire way and for him to bury that weight on his shoulders. At the age of fifty. Like on the sixteenth hole. Sunday brooks was his last chance to really put pressure on them. Playing next to fill was to. Maybe eagle six. He steps up and rips of three hundred and sixty one yard drive. So what is phil do. At the age of fifty he hits one five yards past him. Three hundred sixty six yards. Which was the longest drive on sixteen for him to do that at his age on that course and withstand the deepest field in the majors every year. The pga has the deepest field. It's a harder accomplishment. Look at it. The same way as jack or tiger. Because phil is not jacker tiger. He's he's you only has six majors. Jack has eighteen. Tiger has fifteen but what he was able to do that was harder. It was harder. And i don't think it's debatable. You seem i won't say energize but when you left espn. I think a lot of people think there could be bitterness. He can be mad on how it ended. I haven't. I read some of the stuff talked. Richard is indeed. You're daito hit him on the ranch. Never daij dot com about it in. Maybe what led to it or whatever. How was it hard walkway not be may. Well there always will be a little resentment for how it was handled. But i knew that. I couldn't do that radio anymore. And it was nothing against golick and it was nothing against any of the people i work with. We still talk all the time i just. I'm a night owl by nature. They asked me. I didn't come to them. They came to be and said we would like you to do this. Because mike greenberg we have other think. We're going to move him. We would like you to do this. And i said okay i'll try and You know it was a three year contract. And i knew within the first week that it wasn't for me but i was going to go through it so about halfway through the deal. My agent went to them and said look. You asked him do this and he did it but i don't think he wants to do it long term and for some reason. They took great offence to that. And i'll tell you a funny story when i was considering the job. I almost didn't take it. Because like i said i loved nfl live. I love doing primetime. i love doing the draft. I love going to ken. That's my jam. Outside of golfing you know the us open and open championship. And all that kind of stuff. And i was able to squeeze adami my schedule wimbledon. Us open tennis. It was great. Someone pulled me aside and said look if they offer this to you and you don't take it they'll hold it against you next time around and sure enough that happen to be the case so i guess i would say to. I took that job for the right reasons. And i left it for the right reasons because it just wasn't for me and i didn't wanna fake it. I hated pretending. Like i'd seen all the things the night before. Because you can't you can't get up at three fifteen every morning and watch every game at night because then you're is ambi- and that's just i didn't wanna live that way. I didn't want to be dishonest with the listeners in the viewers and i'm not saying that it's wrong that other people can't do that if they can good for them. I couldn't So i left it. I left it for the right reasons and it turned out to be the gracing the world because this has been really fun with the things that i've been able to do and working with the pga tour. I went to fox and did some stuff with them. And i can't say anything yet but there are things there that are coming working with a little company called pro football network here do some digital stuff for them. The podcast half forgotten history trey wingo presents on youtube. And you can get on apple stitcher spotify wherever you get your luminary wherever you get your podcast. That has been amazing. Our sponsors have been incredible me like you said maker's mark mercedes. us bank of visa draft kings. It's fun to do a lot of different things for a lot of different people. And it's really been energizing in you kind of own your schedule don't ya. Yeah it in your have forgotten history. I believe by definition all these conversations that take place off air or just when the interview or when the segments over you know. We did marshall fox than in a tv show. We'd go to the commercial break needs. Or i'd like to see that on the air please. That's exactly right like one of the greatest stories. We got this with ally manning when we had archie on like his rookie year. Tim hasselbeck told me the story is he was alive. He was a third quarterback when they had kurt warner eli and tim in two thousand and four and there was a game after. They've made the switch from kurt to To eli or they're playing. I can't remember who it was but they're starting left. Tackle luke. Pettigrew broke his leg in that game and so their backup left. Tackle was getting bob whitfield. Who was a really good player. In his time it was the number one. Pick out i think stamford But he got in the game and he was terrible. I mean like he was. He was a swinging gate in left tackle. And i think eli was sacked like five times after that and swain gave. He was hit a dozen more and so that next week they had a players. Only meeting bob whitfield stands up the players. Only meetings at hey man. That loss was on me. Luke never gets hurt. So i didn't go to bed saturday night. I was out partying with some girls and doing some stuff. I shouldn't have done so that's on me. I'm sorry man. And eli deadpan. Turned to tim. Hasselbeck and said yeah. And i'm the bust we tell that story. That's when i learned when not everybody prepared the way. I was preparing you know so those kinds of stories that we had like you said conversations between the breaker out to dinner at a super bowl or the hall of fame where we're having a cocktail. We can start to do that again now. Those things never made air for whatever reason. And that's the whole point to tell the behind the scene stories. That people don't know that i know and you know and maybe a few other people know that they need to know and that's been the fun. Part about it bob whitfield. That sounds like the original mcgee right and i will work worked out better for mac mcgee than it did for bob whitfield. Trust me on that one. So is there any his imitation though. Because the world has changed and people are uptight and look into just hop on people for anything they say. That's the only. I watch so many of these real stories. But i think people are still hesitant or guys who are out of the game. Now don't carry. i think. I think they're less hesitant now. I think there was a hesitancy when this just started and people like what is this. What's going on. But i think at this point. It's all coming out anyway you know. There's there's a country song. It'll all come out in the wash. And i just i think from my conversations with people especially now a lot of players that are playing anymore. They don't care like we just had t o on great. I mean he was. He was phenomenal talking about the stuff that went through him. And by the way this week we got james harrison coming up it'll drop on thursday a longtime outstanding linebacker in the nfl defensive player of the year by the way. He's going to tell a story about his time with the patriots that if it had gotten out when he was with the patriots they would cut him on the spot and he he was like. I probably shouldn't tell you this will tell you anyway because it doesn't matter now it's great about something. He did the week before a playoff game. At a bill bell jack and found out about it he would have been apoplectic But i think that people are happy to share their stories now and they want people to know what it was like. We had a long conversation with chris. Long which we didn't season two about the pressure of playing for the rams when the rams were bad like the rams were bad they had just gone through the greatest show on turf era and and all that kind of stuff. And then that's when. When when a lauren itis and long or there and robert quinn and the defense was really good. The team was terrible and he was really open and honest. About how. Much that sucked. People like. Go perform on sunday if you if you know. You don't have a chance to win. I mean they went the one in fifteen. I think it took a special teams touchdown. Against the lions touchdown. Pass to a backup tight end fells. Daniel fells that that was the only win of the year you know. And that's we recorded this when when the jets were going through their miserable season. He's like we were worse that year than the jets were and nobody knows how how much that grates on you. How much that wears you down. How much it drives you crazy So those are the kind of things. I think people really enjoy hearing in twenty fifteen. They win in seattle for the first time in ten or whatever years chris long i said. Hey you guys win. Next week you'll be aids because it was like around here. That was and he goes. We get a parade. 'cause he who gives a shit about eight. But i don't know around here and of course they lost the game and they went right but the thing about kris. Which was great was like you know he went through that miserable. Stretch with the rams and then the back end of his career he joined one of the most exclusive clubs in the history of football. He won one with the patriots and the very next year. He beat the patriots as a member of the eagles. I think they're only five people. Maybe even four in nfl history. That went back to back super bowls with different teams. The first one was ken norton. Jr. i won two straight with the cowboys. And then some of the forty niners and they won a super bowl twenty nine and then a brandon browner one with seattle and the very next year one one against seattle with the patriots and then Dion sanders also did it. He won with the niners. And then one with the cowboys. Super bowls twenty nine thirty. And then chris long and look eric blunt who were both members of the patriots in super bowl fifty one and they beat him in super bowl fifty. That's the list. It's those five players so for chris to go through all that shit for lack of a better term. He came out on top on the other end of it with an amazing run that that Really put the sort of the cherry on the sunday of his. Nfl career in which great for him is saint. Louis legacy people knew what he went through. Yet you'd see him. On tuesday nights at a local charity during the fundraisers shaken. Hand like he did all that stuff. And then karma baby he gets those championship but also they went to l. a. He and lawrence were very popular. They both got cuts. I told chris the stain of you did make it there and ended up a thousand times. Better let me ask you the spn. Everybody says it's woke center. Whatever is there. Is there anything to that. Like a mandate like icu. Saying i'm gonna you're gonna say whatever you want do they indicate what narratives are or what seems are well. I haven't been there in a while. But i think they are very aware of who their audience is now. I don't think there's a mandate. I wanna be clear about that. I don't think anyone says the things you talk about these things you don't talk about but i'm sure there are suggestions. And they understand who their audiences and you know for a long time. He is being with just a bunch of white dudes. I mean the way it was a couple of women and just a bunch of white dudes. And i think they've made a conscious effort to be more diverse. I don't see that as a bad thing. But here's here's the thing that i would say when people say oh. I don't wanna see politics in sports. I think that's a lie because you don't want to see what you don't like in politics in sports like the same people like i don't wanna see politics and sports probably had no problem with the guy the nascar driver who but trump on his car in two thousand sixteen right. They didn't have a problem with other presidents richard. Nixon gave the washington redskins. Now watch the football team played run and super bowl seven and then have an issue with that. I think people don't like the opposite of their politics being in sports like politics of always been in sports. It's just we talk it more now. It's a little more of an open discussion. So i think that there's an uncomfortableness where people feel like. Hey this is my escape. And i understand that and i can relate to that but also at the end of the day you need to understand not i always listen to this with athletes. Like when you're a kid martin. You grew up in wisconsin. Right well st louis and milwaukee. Okay so let's see. Where were you in fifth grade. I was in milwaukee. Okay you're in fifth grade. Milwaukee and your elementary school is saint catherine i so you're fifth at saint catharine milwaukee and you go to the mall and you. Who's your fifth grade teacher. I don't okay. Let's say it's mrs prelates okay. So you're a fifth grader. In milwaukee at saint catherine's and you go to the shopping center that you go and you see mrs pro which your fifth grade teacher and you're like hey you're not supposed to be here. You're in school. You don't exist outside of school. And i think a lot of people look at athletes and have looked at athletes that way for a long time. You're a person you're just this guy. I watch on field. And i think there's been a an awareness in a discussion. More cabbies are not just widgets. They're not machines or people and they have lives away from the sport that they play. And i think it's hard for a lot of fans to sort of put them in a different view of seeing them just as the thing that they want to enjoy during the game and when they see them outside of that parameter kind of freaks them out a little bit. I mean that. That's the best way i can describe it. Let let's finish with. This is way of zoom limits. You have golf five places to go. I feel like you and i could next time. we'll do with maker's mark trump. Five hours done bills malcolm stories. It'll take two hours alone by the way. He's been dodging on the podcasts. He works for edward jones. Says they won't let him. i wore. I don't malcolm i love you. I don't believe that's the case. I'd already either tell me about just so up. The saint louis stretch. Were your kids born here. i'm trying to remember. was that six year window like for you. It was great like before. I got saint. Louis working in allentown pennsylvania and the newsroom was trailer on the back in the studio and it was a bad trailer on the back in studio. Like i remember getting there and the first thing i saw was the building. You know. one thousand market street. Where casey k. Was i was like it's a building like an actual office with an actual studio saint. Louis was great. Both my kids. Both our kids were born there. Able seven nineteen ninety to march fifth. Nineteen ninety-five it will always be a second home for us and the people in saint louis to this day to this day. I still get people to come up and do this. Okay which is if. We're on the audio podcast. The five one thing over the different one back in. I understand that. I can see how that would be the correct response but like for example. I played golf with kenny last week. And we played with a producer named john. Deere who just back from. Yeah and he'd just flown back from seeing his parents who now live in pinehurst but they grew up in saint louis and he said he was going to play with kenny and me and they said please tell him we miss. We miss him on channel five. I mean they're not even in saint louis anymore. They're pinehurst retired and they asked him. Please give him the five one. So the folks in saint louis were so welcoming to me and so could you know. It's it's kinda tight knit community. You know where you went to. School is not where you went to college. They want to know what high school you went to. That matters in saint louis and as a complete outsider an interloper i felt very welcomed and part of the st louis community. And i'll never forget that it was a great place to have our kids and have them grow up youngsters. It was awesome trade a lot of fun to catch up. Thanks for sharing stories. that sounds like we just. We just might see again soon. I'm just gonna leave the tv. Not you're good at that. And i i would say the odds are strong my friend. Well it sure sounds like there'll be some news soon about trays next. Stop at the national level in duchess fond to hear his thoughts on the time in saint louis going to espn as a younger guy running around with all those big names that you'd watch some tv for years. Hope you enjoyed that conversation. A lot of great things on tap don't always promoted until we've got them recorded and a never know who's listening right got to be paranoid but a lot of great segments still to come in a lot of times we try and go just a little bit off the radar and that somebody heard on saint louis local radio three times in the last week. That's the goal of the show so hope you enjoyed it. Kilburn conversation presented by redevelop senior. Living also try it bank and appliance.

Talk Shows Sports byline. This is going to be a fun hour for me because I'm done this guy for a long time. You've watched him play in the NFL when he was playing for a long time as well and of course, you always hear what those Dallas Cowboy. Games. When he picked up yards or got a touchdown Moose I'm talking about Daryl Moose Johnston former NFL fullback who played his entire eleven year career with Dallas he won three super bowls the cowboys along the way he was picked in the second round after playing his college ball at Syracuse and due mainly to Johnston's contributions the NFL created. The full back position in the pro bowl in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, three, he became the first fullback ever selected for the PROVO. Earning trips not only in nineteen ninety-three but also in ninety four as well. We will talk to Darryl about his life growing up in the state of New York, and of course, his college career as well, and then making it onto the NFL and he retired at the end of the one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, nine season after suffering a neck injury, and as I said, he was a member of those three super bowl winning teams but he really is considered one of the best fullbacks ever in his blocking for Emmitt Smith helped. emmitt become the all-time NFL rushing leader, and of course, he made a nice transition after his playing career into broadcasting broadcasting for Fox sports and interestingly enough he was in the broadcasting booth amid broke the rushing record. He came down onto the field to Hug Smith and congratulate him afterwards and as Smith made his victory lap of the Texas stadium after the record setting carry Johnston hung back in the shadows. When Smith saw Johnston the to join together in an emotional embrace with Smith telling Johnston. I couldn't have done it without you and Johnston replied it was my pleasure I couldn't imagine doing it for anybody else in two thousand ten Johnson was in the audience for Emmitt Smith's. Induction into the pro football hall of fame and during his acceptance speech a visibly emotional Smith spoke directly to Johnston calling out the fact that as a fullback he had sacrificed himself for so many years to block for Smith and he said without you, I know that today would never have been possible.

Here's Ron. Daryl Johnston joins us on sports byline I think football fans know him as Moose. He hears it all the time when he was playing former NFL fullback who played his entire eleven year career. With Dallas, he won three super bowl championships with the cowboys. Picked in the second round after playing his college ball at Syracuse. Let's go back to the beginning Daryl. Tell me a little bit about growing up in Youngstown New York and I saw the latest population is two, thousand, sixty three. In booming. it was It was like mayberry. You know very Rock Weli, and you're never lock your doors You know everybody looked out for each other. It's just one of those really unique opportunities. Probably very similar to what? People have experienced growing up in the fifties and sixties You know we were still able to do that in the seventies and eighties so It was It was something that I think is that important to me and setting my values you know it it was about a work ethic. you know a a faith in Christ you know just very very grounded You know as as a foundation as you left there so. you still have an opportunity to go back and it's still the same. It's it's Kinda like it's just it's stuck in time nothing nothing's really impacted yet. It's It's very unique, very unique place to to tell me a little bit about how sports factored into your early life. Well that was that was Kinda thing that we did tyne and you know I. It wasn't organized like it is today You know you would you would go out and you would you would have a pickup football game pick up baseball game. You know we think the boys and you know, yeah. Well, how do we team you throw back you catch it then you go fist over fist and little gets covering the top of the bat you know gets first election in the you know how we used to do stuff you know instead of rock paper scissors it was one one, two, three shoot and we were doing odds and even So you you found different ways to do things but we didn't. We didn't have coaches with us You know didn't have dads were supervising everything. You know we had that in some of the organized sports obviously but you know I'm I'm talking about just the pure joint of the Games where you would go out and do it with just a group of friends So that's kind of where everything started and you know the the big thing in in our party tower, the parts of the parts were. Were very big at that time is is in an area for kids who had both parents working you know to kind of go and and when you were there, you know there was days what was arts and crafts, but the majority days it was a sport and it was whatever season. You know that that sport was going on. So it was just something that. You know where I grew up in what my likes were at the time. You just kind of gravitated to and and I think I developed a lot of. You know the athleticism there just kind of on our own I'm sure we've picked up some bad habits along the way, and so we We got ransom coaching but I always remember just the purity of the sport at that time and the love of the game even you know obviously growing up in Upstate New York you know in the wintertime you know freezing you know a little ice rink in the backyard of one of our friend's house going down playing hockey they're. You know in the winter top. So we we we can always find some way to be involved in sports activity your loopholes Highschool Jersey number thirty four has been retired who was important to you and your early athletic. Career. Oh Gosh you know it's Kind of weird in poke kids this you don't want to talk to the always ask you know who did you. You know who your heroes you know who are the guy he's tried to model your game after you know for me it was it was actually some of the high school players you know you went. As a as a young boy high school games and and it's not. Like they have here in Texas, but you know it was it was pretty cool. You know it was it was a small community and you know the high school varsity teams you know they would. They would drive people to the stadiums. They would drive people to the basketball courts So you know I always remember some of the the older guys when I was growing up, you know the whitehead brothers and you know the man's family. With was another group that had it. One of the dentist was one of my best friends and he was a year older but he had you know several older brothers who are very very athletic and those guys that know we always wanted to try and become. just it was more of a local connection than it was a national connection where you were trying to monitor your game with somebody in the NFL or. Somebody in the NBA. So you know for us it was more of a direct contacts. I've always told kids. You know it's great to watch TV and you try to emulate somebody but you know people who you idolize and you watch you should be able to have a dialogue with you know they should be somebody that you could reach out to and and have a conversation with or give you advice. You know whether that was you know an athlete at your high. School you know An. Older, brother of of one of your friends you know that those are the guys that were forced to be and and they were always gracious with their time and and getting some conclusions and things that would help us out. I know you're a pretty good student because he had a perfect four point. Oh, grade average I in your senior year how did you choose? Syracuse did you not want to get far away from home or were the circumstances? No, that was my only option. So. I didn't I didn't really have a lot. You know our area's not heavily recruited to start with tucked away up in in western New, York? We're we're forty five minutes north of Buffalo. So when You know a lot of the scouts are coming across New York state but coming across through which ones right through the middle of the state and no venture up to Rochester, they'll come into the buffalo area and then usually they're heading south you get into western Pennsylvania we're way into. which at the time with hotbeds, we're on a high school athletes coming out. So you know not a lot of desire to run up into western New York and and take the tires a little bit. So you know I was under the radar for a long time, and as you pointed out, that was a good student You know my mom that was something we had no pass no play long before it became popular around the country So you know grades were the first thing you have your grade slipped and you weren't gonna be able to play your sport. So that was the motivation. so For me when I came out of high school, one of the schools I was looking at. Cornell. In the Ivy League you know a good academic institution that also had you know competitive football in the eighties. and. Then across the hill from Cornell was EPOCA, which back in the seventies and the eighties was very dominant football program at the division three level under Jim Butterfield as head coach. So I'd gone down in a trip to visit. Cornell. And I went over to Ethica visit coach Butterfield time since we were there and there were some other division three schools that was looking at and right before we get going on that trip. Syracuse, university had kind of reached out and. You know. Inquired about what I was thinking and you know started to dialogue. So when I met with Butterfield he asked who else is out there looking at you who are we competing against with your epoca and you know there was you know obviously the University of Buffalo in Buffalo State, which we're back where I grew up, which were division free programs. Saint was a bigger division three program you know up in the the northeast corner of the state You know there was a few other free programs I would I was looking at that as good football back where we grew up at that time, and then obviously they told them about Cornell and informed them that well surtees. Universities is the school that's just kinda begun show some interest in and he kind of lifted up. Is from writing things down and looked at Syracuse, you can't compete at Syracuse. So. I. Kind of do their number one at what they're going to Ethica. I was probably going to go to Syracuse You know at that time in my life I was. I was approved people wrong guy. He told me there was something I couldn't do I would work. Is Hard as I possibly could approve people on. So that was probably The big motivator for me to really Kinda get behind the opportunity to Syracuse University because he told I was you know I'm no fool. You know it was December of my senior year. You know why? Why did it take that long for for individual and program to recruit somebody? It's not like he didn't today but you know it also like you know you have your the recruiters and coaches that are looking at tape and trying to valuable players and you know to be recruited for the for the first time to get the first contact send review senior year that you know it seems a bit odd. and so there was a little bit of apprehension for me. You know was this too big was this. something. That's going to be challenging and later found out the entire story as to why It was December by senior year. The first, the first contact was made by the university. We only have about a minute before we have to break here you gravitated to the fullback position rather naturally you're a special teams player in a darn good one at that you comfortable. What was it about that position Daryl that you felt comfortable and really enjoyed The. Big thing was when I when I graduated high school I was I was running back and when I went down to Syracuse. Immediately went to the full back position You know that was would've one of the things that they had identified asd it was kind of odd because you know my senior high school I was first team all state as a fullback, but never played before decision. So I guess the Writers New York State new something that I know and then I just I, knew that that was my way to be a part of the Syracuse Program you know they they were running the oxygen and time. So, I was going to get You know quite a few carriers you know averaged over one hundred carries you know for for three years when I was at Syracuse. University. So you were foundational piece of the offense and You know that was great for me. You know it was definitely going to be my way. If they tried to navigate this opportunity for me to find my niche and be accorded Syracuse football over Daryl Johnston is with us and we're talking about his fine career. We'll talk about his NFL career on the other side but he played at Syracuse he rushed for eighteen hundred thirty yards and once gained one hundred, thirty eight yards rushing the most by syracuse running back since Larry soccer rushed for a hundred and fifty your yards in one thousand, sixty, seven we come back on the other side as we continue across the country and around the world, it's good to have you with us on America's sports talk show.

This is America's sports talk show sports byline USA. Here's Ron Bar. Daryl Johnston. Is with us on sports byline the former NFL fullback who played his entire eleven year career with the Dallas. Cowboys winning three super bowl championships and as we were talking about Syracuse and how he ended up there there's a story there isn't there daryl. Yeah so we you know it was December by senior year before the first contact came and actually Kyle federally the equipment manager there who still there actually, he gave the story years later and he said the reason you were such a a late guy in a radar because we had a guy who would verbally committed to come to syracuse changes mind and go to Penn State. So there was a a scholarship offer that was scholarship opportunity opened late in the process and is all the coaches haggled for one of the recruits to be able to get that spot. the consensus was Let's give it to the kid from Western new. York. We'll keep down you know keep the the alumni in that part of the state. Happy and we'll have a practice player for the next five years. We'll give everything he has on the field, not not a lot of expectations from coach back in the staff when I went to. Syracuse so It was it was kind of ironic thing you know things have worked out the way they have when the expectations should be going to syracuse to I don't think ever anticipated. Or started and this talking about expectations. What was the expectations for the draft? Did you expect to go to the cowboys? Did you think you'd go that high? You know there was actually a comment by Don Shula pre-draft where he said we are going to take the full back from Syracuse in the second round. So I went into my draft in nineteen eighty nine. China knowing exactly what was going to happen but on Draft Day the Miami Dolphins drafted Sammy Smith the running back from Florida state with their first round pick I think it was number six overall but Louis Oliver. A safety from the University of Florida started to drop in the draft. So the Miami Dolphins. Packaged their second and third round picks in traded them. She moved back into the I ram to get lewis-oliver twenty fifth overall. And that kind of blew up my whole draft day and then everything looked at me. So what's going to happen next anybody else expressing interest like that and I said, you know I had really worked out for the REDSKINS. So maybe there's some traction there and then shortly after that, the redskins traded their pixel. Pixabay to to Atlantic and get the. Jarrell brings. So at that point on my draft I had. No idea where I was going to go. So one, the when the Dallas cowboys called the during the second round eight actually drafted aligning out of Penn, state and the first thing the second draft it with the idea, the trade back to the La Raiders to be able to to move down in the second round and pick me so I actually. You know the coolest thing about this because he went into the hall of fame last year is I. drive a contact Gillibrand from Dallas cowboys. That's that's who called me know that The Dallas cowboys. Thirty, ninth overall pick in the draft tell I remember briefly how you got the nickname Moose I know the story but I'm sure you're asked every time and everywhere you go how you got that name. Yeah, big. OFFENBURG very. Very innocent flippant remark. The just boy get got traction and stuck like glue but. you know bagels the first gotTa Call Me Moose and and he would always say you know it practice. We would we would break up or individual groups and go work on position specific drills, and then we come together as an offense and and kind of work on everything together as a group and the running backs we artists away from the field. So we were the group that was coming in last as the offense was getting together for the group period and you know at the time all the other running backs where a lot smaller than even Mike, my other fullback Broddrick sergeant was was a short stocky guy of five, ten, two, hundred, forty, pound guy and I. Was Six foot two you know two, hundred and forty five so that you look like a Moose walking in a field of deer as you guys come up to join the group period. So you know from now on I'm GONNA call you moves and they used it around the locker room and it was getting some traction there and then Brad Sham who's still doing cowboys radio he found out about it, use it on the radio, and then one time troy was in production meeting talking to John Madden and John. Ask We got anything new this week that you might use offensively and tracing. Yeah we'RE GONNA. Try and get a little bit more involved with the game this weekend and Whose? Daryl. Darryl Moose and then John Madden referred to me as Moose during the broadcast and I that may have been the last time. I was called Daryl. For the next eight or ten years one of the things that I've always known in covering sports particularly football is that each position has a personality in other words I think the and have a personality wide receivers, quarterbacks, and everything. Tell me a little bit about the personality of you and the fullback position. I think I I. You make a great point I need that there is a lot because you have to have the right mentality the right personality You know you're not gonNA get a lot of stats and you can't be motivated by statistics to guys who loved the game. do anything. They can't seem to be a part of the game and and they'll though gravitate to the fullback position It's an unselfish mentality. It's a team first mentality. it was funny this year meeting with the forty niners Kyle Shanahan referred to call us check is their fixer and that really struck me and really get home with me because I i. think that's really what the full back does as he's moving through the process of clay. You know he has his assignment he'll fix missed assignment along the way if something POPs up. I think that was a really a really unique way to look at the position and and it really hit me You know that we are fix. You know we try to we try to clean up in the states having as we're moving towards our assignments what I told everybody they said you guys come to me and asked me about you know what is the techniques? How do you do this and? You know there really is no technique. The fullback vision is really a a a real You know it's going to be a violent collision. You know there is really no. Regular technique that you can use. It's just this is GonNa be a violent collision, and he wants to get under the WHO wants to win the patent battle who's going to be the guy creates movement. you know who's going to be able to give the running back the space to be able to gain a yard and you know I've always felt that at the fullback position. If the defendant creates a stalemate you win you know he's he's plugged the hole and so for me I took a lot of pride in generating movements. So when I when I tell people, you know how I did my job, you know I started to find different ways and some of them you know are are unique. But it was for me to be able to to create that space create movement because I knew if I got stuck in the hole, then had nowhere to run So a lot of it is using the defenders momentum against him to carry beyond the whole you know you can't stop it two hundred and fifty pound guy in his tracks and started moving backwards. So you just find unique ways To take the momentum that he's bringing into the into the collision and use that against him to create your your separation. So running back has hold on we only have about three minutes before we have to break again but you're considered one of the best fullbacks ever and you're blocking for Emmitt Smith certainly helped it become the all-time nfl rushing leader what I've always found interesting is the blending of chemistry and in a position like running back fullback up back that chemistry it doesn't come naturally all the time tell me about whoever you were blocking for particularly Emmett that chemistry and how you developed it with the running back. You know I was I was very blessed. You know Emmett is really the only guy I've ever really blocked for my ended prior to Emmett. So you know he was really know the the focal point. As my running back. Lorenzo. Neal. Is One of those guys who have thousand yard rushers everywhere he went and he was able to be tremendously full-back for a number of great running backs in the NFL. But for me it was it was and one of the big things that happened with us. Is. You know we sat right next to each other during the room, and this is one of the things I will tell the full backs when they asked me questions I said, where did you sit in the film room and they won't sit next to the running back and I said, well, you have to sit next running back. You have to always understand what he's seeing during the course of the play and that's where I really learned a lot from 'em and how much things would change we only yards apart in formation. But what he saw in what I saw in that two yard separation were completely different so I had to start seeing things You know from his perspective and for me, it was actually slowing down a little bit and in the beginning I was trying to go as fast as I could generate some acceleration to bring into that collision and and founded if I slowed down a little bit, it was actually very beneficial for for me to lead back for Emmett. So you know that that's what we started to develop our chemistry and we sat next to each other on the phone room, our entire career, and that's why I really Kinda learned. You know how to see what he was seeing You know to understand what he likes. you know to know where the matchups were. You know going into the game that we felt favorable us So we we share quite a lot of information and I think it was extremely beneficial to Dr Success to get around the field in a minute. Before we break here, did you have a sense about what he was able to do from a physical fullback or not fullback running back standpoint that made it easier on you to discern what you needed to do His Times where you know I thought played side. You know there was an opportunity for success on that play, and that's where I started to learn that he saw things differently But one of the things that you always wanNA running back to do is To the whole and then explosives through the whole and that was one of the great things that Emmett was able to do. You know he was not going full speed when he got the ball, he would he would accelerate the top speed once he saw where the play was going to go on that snap and and that's something unique for running back. Sometimes, they create determined where the whole is going to be an image was really really good. So that's why it was so critical for us to get together and understand the chemistry and for me to see the play the way he saw because. Every once in a while, we'd come out the back door together. I knew my guy wasn't going to be able to make the tackle because we were going to go on a different direction than where he was going to be, and now is that safety dropped down as an unblocked guy could easily make a tackle and it was going to have me in front of him. So we were able to isolate some of the backside defenders into one on one situations and gives them to way goes Daryl Johnston is with us. When we come back, we'll talk more about that special moment when Emmitt broke the record. And also we'll talk about his broadcasting career as we continue on America's sports talk shows sports byline warning.

This is America's sports talk show sports byline USA. Here's Ron. Johnson joins us on sports byline the former NFL fullback played his entire eleven year career with Dallas anyone three super bowls with the cowboys. He was picked in the second round after playing his college ball at Syracuse and he certainly is considered one of the best fullbacks ever and his blocking for Emmitt Smith helped 'em and become the all-time nfl rushing leader and in addition to his foxsports. NFL, Broadcasting Darrow is the director of player personnel for the new xfl Dallas renegades franchise and that league by the way we'll start with eight teams on February the ninth there you know you remind me that great quote from the Godfather movie when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in. I feel. I feel like that every once in a while absolutely. But you know what the game of football has been has been so good to me throughout my life You know really everything I I O I o to the game of football. I mean I met my wife here in Dallas we started our family. So all the big moments in my life. Are Really directly related to this game, and one of the things that I'm hoping I can do is I start the next path towards the front office is to provide that opportunity for other young men. You know when you take that are trying to do that and you take a look at the NFL and what's happening particularly out in San Francisco and other places It probably gives you an idea that somewhere along the line, you could be the general manager of an NFL franchise or maybe even xfl if it goes in that direction. Yeah I think all of us did play. The game would look to see if what we believe in. You know the things that we learn the lessons learned from from all the great coaches and the great people that have been part of our life All that knowledge that we've accumulated over the years does does that give us the opportunity that the capability to create a championship roster? So John, Lynch, is doing a tremendous job out in San. Francisco, somebody came from a nontraditional path a great player you know on the cusp of the hall of fame. You know went the TV route as opposed to the coaching for office Brown but because of the the passion for the game. You know the understanding. What it takes? For every player, and then you know the the unique parts for each position specifically John His watch that his entire career as a defender trying to get ready to to stop offenses you know being around the great coaches in his life and he's been able to transition that you know into a front office opportunity and we've Seen Ozzie newsome in Baltimore put together. A Super Bowl franchise we've seen John ELWAY IN DENVER, put together a super bowl champion franchise. So you know we're we're all hoping that that perhaps people start to look at this as you know a different route towards getting to the front office and the general manager position that it doesn't have to be the traditional route where you came in and you were a scout. And, worked into the college game in the NFL game and and went through all the channels that way. But just as somebody who has a wealth of knowledge about what it takes to win on the field the the thing that you thought were critical in creating the chemistry within the locker room within the franchise you know to me, that's one of the the. Really really important parts and I think that's one of the things that that guys have played the game no more than anybody else you you can't. You can't go somewhere. You can't spend time somewhere to understand the critical components to putting together a championship chemistry in a locker room second time around for the xfl starting February the ninth what's going to be different this time. Well I think the big. The big difference is you're gonNA see traditional football I think the first time around There was maybe leaning more towards the being different not wanting to be like the NFL and and maybe straying too far away from that and and getting away from what the game actually was and fans love became. A football and you've got to stay true to that and I think maybe the XFL the first time around you know veered off the path maybe a little bit too far and you know a credit to them they learned from that they know that they have to be you know true to the to the foundation of the game and. That is something that's been emphasized by by Vince McMahon and everybody throughout the organization. As we started this journey. So I think that the The people that are familiar or saw the xfl on the first go around. It, this will be much different. This will be very competitive traditional football you know having been with the alliance last year and gone through this process with a league to try to to capitalize on the opportunity to provide football and spring You know there were some lessons that were learned there but I think the big thing that that the xfl for us was to stay traditional that there is a market that you can generate a rating in this spring, there's a desire, there's an appetite. To Watch football year round but but you have to a certain way and I will complement the xfl. On this we we have more talent at this stage of the process than we did in the alliance last year So I expect their games to be even more entertaining you know with with more talented athletes and this is not a knock on what what we did last year in the alliance. But but Vince McMahon and and his his commitment is preparation and everything that he has done everybody inside a of the xfl in the time that they put into it they've really provided us the opportunity to have seventy man rosters at this stage. that are more talented than I anticipated. You know the other thing I sense from everything I've heard and people that I've talked to. You took the words right out of my mouth I, think their strength at the very top and when you have that at the top, it's going to trickle down. You Got Oliver Look I've known Oliver for years and I've had some wonderful conversations with him I watched his son at Stanford, Andrew Luck and when I heard that Oliver was going to be involved with kind of smiled a little bit. Am I correct in assuming that there is a a depth that the top that's going to work ben and beneficially for the XFL. Without a doubt and that's why you've gotten so many you know high quality people have come in you know below Oliver Lock because everybody recognizes that name and really. Truth be told he's he's the one person that has made this work in the past. the only other league that was was successful and. Really, didn't fail but just you know at a at a certain point just was not feasible Because it was in Europe and Oliver Luck was the commissioner of NFL Europe. So he is he's the one person that has found a way to make this work long term. So I, I can't I can't wait. To see what what plans he has for us you know and like everything with a new venture you're learning on the fly, but you've got somebody that is going to have unique experiences from his first go around and then obviously he's been involved with with major college football for a number of years You know he understands how important you know being true to the game is and has such A. Great Reputation that he's been able to attract a number of great coaches and those coaches have been able to put together great staffs because you continually point up the ladder when people are contemplating whether to be a part of this and you start to hear the names of people. Who have signed on you know that that's when people start to get excited and You Know I. I. I can't wait to see it's been it's been. It's been fun for me you know to to watch the growth and watch You know the way that they've implemented but the draft that we did back in October was so first class it was done so well, I hope the guys that were drafted into the into the xfl you know experienced it the way that we did in our draft room because it really was done in a first class manner and you know. Our coaching staff made sure that we reached out and we had contact and conversations with with all the seventy guys that we drafted. So you know it, it's kind of that charge. Whether, it's been spoken or just it's understood you you're doing things in a first class manner and You see that's all the franchises and the extra we're talking football with Daryl Johnston of course, former NFL fullback who played his entire eleven year career with the cowboys in won three super bowls with them and he is now the director of player personnel for the new xfl Dallas renegades, and again that league will start play on February the ninth with a teams i. also think this is the best timing what I mean by that Darrow is the fact that if you take a look at the landscape from a financial standpoint, everything, you know everybody wants more and more sports, and while you guys are going into some established cities already like New York and certainly like Dallas and and everything I. Just think it's the right time that you'll get the type of financial sport support that you WanNa have and what what is everybody's are the people that you've talked to what is their focus on as far as what this league is going to be, and they wanted to be when you think about already the established, NFL. I think the big thing is you're not trying to compete with the NFL you know the NFL has already. You know they're the number one you know professional sports franchise entity in the entire world You know not just here in the United States but the entire world big. The game has started to grow overseas You know we we see the response when the game is taken. Over to the London Game you know the success that NFL you're a pet. You know for almost fifteen years markets are starting to grow from a merchandising standpoint around the world You wonder where Roger Goodell we'll take the game you know beyond you know the United Kingdom So I I think the big thing right now is is everybody realizes that there's a huge appetite for this game and and we just need to continue to grow it in the right way, and in the springtime provides that opportunity to give you that year round. Sports fix you know it. It's Super Bowl. Sunday when everything stops You know there's there's kind of that big lull You know it's it's been a journey from from training camp through the regular season in the play offs and then When Super Bowl is over, you know there's kind of a letdown and you know now the way the xfl is positioned itself. You know one week later you know here comes another league It's going to have high quality football in it and and and I think that that that is something that that is definitely desirable I think that that everybody has done their research they have they have the analytics, they have all the information that they. need to understand that this is extremely viable, but the key is is making sure that it that it stays traditional that it's high quality and and if if you can, you can provide that product fans There are absolutely gonNA come and I think that you know the fact that the xfl was not afraid to come into you know some of the x t to the NFL cities You know we're we're going to be just outside of Dallas. Are Home Games. Will be played in Arlington right across the from where the cowboys play. Now you've got a franchise in Houston you've got a franchise in La. You've got a franchise in New York a franchise in Washington, a franchise in Seattle Franchise in Tampa You know these are cities that that are NFL cities but they weren't afraid of that and I think that that shows you know the faith and the belief that the xfl has with the. Product that they put out there in the spring that they're going to be successful and we only have about two and a half minutes left on is the league concerned in any degree that I see you're going to have your quarterback Landry Jones or anybody who signs on with you that the NFL will for any of those players I go back to the AFL NFL competitiveness in the an AFL launched it how how you guys looking upon that We've got a couple of things in place to protect us You know one of the things we never want to take away is is the players opportunity. You know to have a chance to play in the NFL you know as as I mentioned before that's the number one professional sports franchise. In the world you know, we deny your young man, the opportunity to have that experience. So you know one of the things we've done is is our contracts are non-binding through the majority of the fall. So anybody that has an opportunity to go to a tryout become a part of A. Practice squad or or actually be having the opportunity to be part of the fifty three on Sunday. We want them to have that but simply we've also got to protect ourselves. So you know our contracts will become firm as we get ready to go to training camp in the month of December. So at that point, you know we're we're less than a month away from training camp so we do need to have a commitment from our guys at that point it wants to be part of us with the xfl so that's one of the things that's in place here and it was very critical because you know. If you tell people that you have to come with us or or we're not gonNA take you they're always going to hold on for that chance that opportunity that dream to be a part of the NFL But because of the leadership that we talked about before with Oliver Luck and Vincent Man and providing them the opportunity with a non binding contract, you know to be able to chase that dream up until a certain timeframe where now it's time to let's come this route. Let's come on our side with us. Let's. Let's get you out there. Let's put you through training camp. Let's take you through a ten game regular season into the play offs. Let's put some great film together for you. Now, you can shop yourself to the NFL the following year and see if the path taken this way you know works out better than guys that decide to sign a futures contract and and they haven't decided to become a part of the exit. So Yeah, we got about twenty five seconds left true that you've solicited for more hours in the day. I haven't heard back yet. I'm only asking for to. I don't know how you do it course with your broadcast schedule and now this new challenge and you've always been somebody. So involve you and your wife and so many other things as well. I WANNA. Thank you. You know you and I have known each other for a very long time, and when I saw you associated with this I smiled because as you said with Oliver Luck and with Daryl Johnston the other quality people it's going to be a great adventure. Thanks a lot for joining us. Daryl. Go Ryan. It's my pleasure. It's great to catch up with you can't believe it's been that long. We'll catch up down the road. Take care.

This is America's sports talk show sports byline USA. Here's Ron. Arad miles joins us on sports byline former college and pro. Player, WHO's now coaching the Golden State Warriors Development League team he grew up in Portland won a state high school championship and then went on to star for Roy Williams and bill self at the University of Kansas. Let me take you back to Portland because I spent some time up in. SEATTLE. I know that part of the world tell me a little bit about what that like growing up there besides just the rain. Definitely, it was. It was great for me. It's a lot of family and friends. That's all we're always behold. I haven't actually lived there for a while now, but it's all. It was a close group call community. when I was growing up and like I say a lot of family and friends. You were very successful as a player up there in the high school ranks. You WanNa stay championship. How good was that high school team because you guys went twenty eight? No, and really just dominated every. You know about. Democrat. Oh. Yes. Especially, that's a crew. You know the cool thing about lot of us. We all play grown-up play, Your School Basketball Baseball football together school same thing. So playing with Cisco Kid's the Basketball Jefferson Jefferson pop. On after this part of baseball, and so we always transition you know together so. It wasn't just the team or the family. So my brothers that we. That I grew up with you know and so on. Twenty eight. And winning the State Championship in having collusion, your support or a very special at the time and I know we always argue with some people say they? Come in Oregon. Oregon high school history you know so. Aaron. One thing I do know is that usually when there are star players around like yourself, it's pretty hard to get out of the state or even out of the region you went to Kansas how you make that decision. Well I go to in Portland on the West Coast PAC. Tin Is something that's always look to. Davis out of my being being a local hero. From the plan. But we're not and it came out of Ucla Arizona and Kansas for. Knowing. My best friend Michalis also. My Jefferson high school saying he ended up. So let's go to Kansas and. So the only dating. So I ended up at ah you. Great. City tell me about the first time you ever met Roy Williams. Remember the first time metal but I just don't move getting a letter from Kent University of Kansas, and that was just like. You know when you're a kid growing up. His. Crew bodies high major program so. When that first, you know initially you get some local better from. Some maybe like a school no. Lower levels. program and then you get a ucla. Thank. Any candidates Oh. Okay. You know when you really start to feel yourself. For. when I was really humbling. Coast whereas up in the stands watching. You know when I think about Roy Williams and know him as well as I do and then think about bill self there are some similarities but what were the similarities and what were the differences between those two coaches and the way they coached and just the way they conduct themselves. In Larry Competitive, they won't win. You know what coastal said once he came to. Canada or to get a cat. and initially you know we let the country on into coast Williams. For for maybe two both years. I. Know for sure my freshman, your. Cell come come in from Illinois and he kinda slow down the game therefore. which we did like it's time you know but I think he had also. Changed and Became on the fast paced coach honestly But I think of the biggest thing you know the style of play with if you know but at the end of the data results in the thing it'd you win A championship. You know that that's what matters. One of the things that I do know is that players do like to run the floor. There's no doubt about it I've I've also always heard Aaron one thing and that is do you make the team your philosophy or do you mold that team to the velocity of the players that you happen to have? I think it has to be a combination of. You have an idea of how you WANNA play philosophy I. Guess. Some Certain principles that that that's that you're GONNA go by but they obviously got. The person that you have. and. That's that's. You know. So you changes obviously dominate how you ought to play especially as a special. At. The professional level you know I think more collegiate level can't know put your philosophy of. Recruit those type of players and their style of play. But at the at the professional level, you know sometimes you don't control type of person that you have. You just gotTa Have Apple. While you're at Kansas, you had two consecutive. Appearances two thousand to two, thousand three and it was the two thousand three series in which you guys made the National Championship game up against Syracuse do you still worry or bother or upset about anything about that game which you lost eighty one to seventy eight that just kind of keeps you shaking your head at all Erin. That is what it is. At this point you know obviously would've loved on a national championship and brought it back. To you. Did it for for Portland but. It didn't happen. You know he'll. Know. My brothers you know. My family. You know. So there's they're gone. I wouldn't trade in so. It didn't happen. Didn't happen for reasons. You know only of the national championship year champions a year so whether it wasn't our time so it is what it is. So yeah. You were signed as an undrafted free agent by the Golden State Warriors, and I would assume that going into the NBA and trying to make a team as an undrafted player is a lot different than if you had been selected in the first of the second round, what type of approach did you take? What type of mental attitude did you have to have? Started the NBA road. Well thing is always always gotta related to be a walk or for for fourteen or commerce. You know where? You know you gotta go. To. To to to stay there don't roll is at times. That's. Get better obviously. But to help break the players that all play majority of the Senate break. Energy and effort every day and a practice, and that was that I took. In holds the Cortina develop that want. To get the you know but You know I it's definitely different. Always say when when they're drafted. It is an investment organization. and and it's a lot more. Don't have a lot more of. A Logan Leash. and. SORT OF A.

This is America's sports. Talk Show Sports Byline USA. Here's Ron. Dr. Ron Adams joins us to save. Ron. Adams is a basketball lifer is an understatement. The Golden State Warriors Assistant Coach has been named the NBA's top assistant coach. In consecutive years he is to playing NBA Defense Bill Walsh was the playing NFL offense and he is a career assistant by choice who has groom some of the League's best head coaches, colleagues sing his praises booklets that atoms put together on defensive strategy can be found. On the shelves of coaches and Executive League wide and when Steve Kerr and Brad Stevens wanted help easing into their new head coaching jobs in the NBA they called atoms in spite of the fact that he's never actually held that job ron is more than just a basketball coach. He's a renaissance man of life run. First of all, let's go back to the beginning. Tell me a little bit about growing up and late in California. Wow. Well Central Valley of California in a small farming community I grew up on a on a farm. four miles from from like. It's very fertile part of our country one point ags lands in the Central Valley were as far as gross national products go worldwide sixteenth ranked. But Amazingly, enough in the growth of California agriculture's now much smaller piece of the Pie. And For example, the tech sector area has really Taken off. So a lot of changes in California in the last. Number of years obviously I was young. How did that area and that upbringing kind of mold you as the person that you are today what were the things in that environment that really affected you? Well. I had a great mom and Dad depression-era parents tough tough on us. And many ways in terms of. Discipline, and so on. That great parents are giving people. My Dad was A. Farmer very honest guy and he said something he meant it and follow through on it and I think all of those lives life lessons Certainly were important in my upbringing And I look back at that. At that time period and You know you find out what work is on the farm, hard work, physical work, and I wish by kids could have gone through that process because it's it's being lost. in terms of. The these kinds of the kind of labor that many of our generation went through. It's not something I wanted to do my entire life but when I look back on it. it was special and I have great respect for the people who Whether they're producing the crops in the Central Valley or. Doing the kinds of construction things that make our our country go the kind of work that they do because that's that's really hard work. That's what quote unquote work. was in my definition of of work when I look back at your basketball career in a sense as a player, and also a coach started Fresno Pacific and you began your coaching career right there as an assistant and following a seven twenty season you became a head coach and in the second year, you took them to a nineteen and seven record your First Impressions of coaching. Well I loved it. Number Line. I thought I had the desk job in the world I wasn't making any money. But it didn't matter because. I was doing something that I truly love to do. And It was tricky figuring yourself out. These Avia small group when you play on a team. But it's not the same as directing a team and there's just a lot of learning over the course of. My. First few years of coaching I have to say that I'm still learning. I learned from younger people I learned from older people. I certainly learn a lot the players I work with. And I learned a lot from fans believe it or not. It was stunning when I was coaching in college that trust state I would. Have these radio call and shows once a week and People from you know out in various areas, pose these. Interesting problems you know at or I should say they would ask very interesting questions and that part that that gave one pause and you had to think through them because they were very well constructed. So. I I I continue to learn about it during the early part of my career You really trying to figure things out and be a good leader as well as a good ex- ex-. coach, all those kinds of things you want said. When I got into coaching it was a very dictatorial relationship. It was the coach looking down at the team I. think that's changed radically I think for the better in many ways but also it's changed because the way of doing the way of relating changes over the course of time because the kids change a little bit the culture changes. So you plug in a different way years ago it was you know pretty much I, have the answers listen to me and you do it. You know that was a tough time. Do you find in the atmosphere and the time that we live in that it's still the same way? I. Don't think you can Approach Small groups that way anymore teams. Even businesses for that matter I mean people working in business There's so much information out there people. I'm not going to say that people are. perhaps any more educated than fifty years ago there's much more knowledge There's much more data for them to look at. This more information out there all depends on how you process the information, package it and make it work for you and and hopefully it's legit information, right? but it's changed that the young people nowadays are so they're they're they're so. So, well versed in areas but I certainly wasn't as a as a kid I look at the high school education. Many kids nowadays I mean it's it's. It's so sophisticated. From what I went through however saying that. I would also add that. Learning is learning and I had great teachers I mean I can. Recall, chapter and verse of the people who really influenced by life in elementary school and high school and so on. And So, we to had. Good a good education From many fine people at that time, but it's it's changed so much and people last questions now, much much more of more so than when I grew up And in cases, the questions of good it helps them chart a course themselves helps it helps. It helps a person understand the path that you'd like to take them on. I thought it was also interesting when you said coaching is at the core teaching and I think you're right about that is at the same at the NBA level as it is that the college level. I think it is The difference is you have. Highly, highly skilled. People in the NBA the the best in the world there's only a few of them and our team, for example, guys in our team. They're almost. There bright to a person there'll where they they're. They're plugged in and they have this great experiential basis, a player they played. Our veterans played hundreds and hundreds of games against you know they played against a given player, just a number of times and so their insights very important and you have to take their insights Because you haven't been playing they have. That's a special expertise in Bank of knowledge that. We don't have even a guy who's played in the League who's coaching team. They certainly still have a knowledge of the plane days to how they were coached whatever. But these guys are now still in the trenches and so that whole dynamic has changed and I think it's changed for the better. Yes. We've got a little bit over a minute left before we have to break but I know Bill Walsh, who is a good friend of mine said it was easier to teach his kids complicated things because of going to Stanford in that type of environment there have you found the same thing to be the case in the environment with the warriors with the players that are there. Well What we do is pretty simple. I think it's taught well People you know you players digested. It's taught well. you drill properly and you encourage and lead properly as Steve Sol. I think the simple things become the The sophisticated things and and that's kind of kind of the. The Path that we take and and actually the. Equation as I see it now and For us in basketball Football is, is I think more sophisticated more to it time to regroup after each. what about very different kind of thing but much more corporate world but more jazz. but it has to be. Organized an organized jazz it has to Make sense to both parties, leaders and and the players. You know carrying out this music and It has to be you know there's a lot of chaos in basketball. It's a kind of a frenetic game at times and then. When you're teaching and then you're leading, try to bring some some Some organization out of the chaos, and that's always been the nature of the game. And it's getting faster and It's getting different. I think that principle applies more than ever before now run Adams's with us here on sports byline as I said a lifetime basketball guy as an assistant coach. In the NBA, we're GONNA be talking more about the warriors and what they've done in a three year period. We do that as we continue on sports byline warning if you're drowning in debt.

Here's Ron Dr. Ron Adams is with us here on Sports Byline, USA. He's an assistant coach for the Golden State. Warriors but he has coached as an assistant under George Karl's scales. Scott. Brooks and. And now an assistant coach under Steve. Kerr you've been called a defensive wonk. When you hear that, what's your reaction to it? Well. I think. I'm a little embarrassed by at times because I think what we do is You know. Pretty pretty simple stuff defense is something that I've always. Enjoyed teaching always felt at the the foundation. Stone that allows you to win at any level of play. it's not the pretty part of the game. It's Kinda the giving part of the game. It's the game. It's the part of the game in which you really have to be connected. And I've always enjoyed it because I see great beauty in it the coordination of five people. Trying to stop You know five other gifted people who? You know the the offense always has a bit of an advantage because they. Normally know what they're doing. What the you know what it's an individually has a game plan. The team has a game plan whatever so. It's kind of an interesting part of the game for me. It always has been and from day one I've. Felt, it's of. The. It's probably the most significant part of the game for winning championships. Let's let's put it that way I thought it was interesting what Celtics coach Brad Stevens said about you said, I, think, everybody knows the defensive details, the XS and OS standpoint of it but I think we're he's just as good as in player development and helping guys find their best. That's a high compliment and when I read that quote I thought to myself, I'd never heard that before tell me about the development aspect because I know for a period of time you were a player development executive in the NBA but how do you approach that part of being in the NBA and coaching? Well, it's really the it's really an exhilarating part of the game at our level and And that is your work with one or two or three players Daily and like Game Day it's kind of interesting because. If you have a shoot around you're. Probably spent some time with the player. After shootaround or before during a few things, you know shooting or other kinds of fundamentals before the game you warm the player up. and. So, there's a lot of time spent together. But more than that it's time that you can really relate and shape and We have a lot of young guys coming into the League. That hit with a lot. And so there's no greater joy. At, least to me for me. than. Helping someone Taylor, a game you know these guys come in they can do a lot of different things, but you have to do a few things well at this level to succeed, and if you study the great players in this game they have very simple games that they add nuance by. In many ways fakes You Know Gamesmanship. Learning, how to draw fouls whatever it might be but. The mechanics pretty simple. In terms of I should say the variety of things they do is is is quite small and getting players to see this is important. It's not always easy. But Our job is to the young players to simply. Help them with skills that allow them to get on the floor and and show what they can do. So it's a fun process, but the the the one on one relational part is the best because I just worked with so many marvelous young man who made me better as a coach and as a person, and hopefully you'll impart to them but that's fun. It's just it's it's just growth it's just teaching you know. Ron I'M GONNA. Make an observation here and if I'm wrong about please feel free to correct me but I really feel and I think this probably Applies to life in general that communication and how you communicate and I think even more. So in the NBA where you've got young men that are making an awful lot of money that have egos that have been stars, there's a lot of adulation around them. So if you want to get them to do something more positive, you've gotTa pick your words and pick your timing at as to sharing it with them. Am I correct an OPS ovation? I think that's a good observation I would temper it by saying that. The guys at this level I really anxious to get better. It's important to them and if you. Have something that you can impart through your daily regimen. Almost to a person, they're gonNA. Listen they're going to try to do that because they want to get better. That's the nature of it. They want to grow their small business and these small businesses have gotten big likely that. I like to use the term small business And so I have found them receptive now in terms of. Saying the right things yes. doing light things. Yes But I find I find these guys to be I think. Much more grounded in just teaching learning regimen than than probably most from the outside would suppose I think it's actually a little bit easier. Than our level in college right now although. You know these guys want to get to the pros. The guys who can play in the pros dot many guys make it obviously but They you know there's a carrot in front of them if it's a high school player of college player. but the receptivity at this level. A good pro player is. Is is quite profound and it is. Challenging. Every every person is unique in you have to. Know them and know what makes them tick? know-how to help Graham and It's a continuing fluid equations. So funnel since you've been in the game for such a long time and you have the perspective, the capability of perspective here having been with a lot of organizations played the game now the pro level, but certainly played the game coach, the game for such a long time. How would you describe the three year period that the warriors won two titles and set the record with seventy three wins in a season? Well I could say I could use a number of adjectives I could use stunning I could use an as ing. I could pull out at alerts from the hat but and I would be descriptive of what has happened It's been a coming together of a lot of. Really unique, elements steeds leadership number one. a group of really special. Young man who support each other I think. Over the last three years, I think our team has supported each other as well as if you played high school sports, for example, you'll favorite high school team did. When you were a part of it. it's really an amazing Dynamic And doesn't happen very often. You know it's it's a it's getting the right people on the bus. it's getting the right driver. And Auxiliary. A team who are. Who assist, and help? And then it takes from the top of takes ownership is really important in this league. And your. Management is really important break. Let me interject something here too because one of the things I learned in talking to Bill Walsh was the fact that most of the discipline and a lot of the direction came out of the locker room from the players themselves and as I watched the warriors over that three year period I noticed that to be the case you have people like draymond green who wants to the beat of his own drum but has now started to mature, and I really think what's. happened. Is just like Ronnie Lott would come and say rookie we don't do it that way I think that is come into play as well because when you have, you can have too much talent on a team unless you can blend it in the right way. Am I correct out about that and also about the fact that that really I think the basis of foundation for the success of that that team over the last three years has been the collective way in which they've adjusted they've adapted. Without Question I. Think it's an excellent point that you bring up. In fact you've done. So often you could bring up a lot of good points I should be interviewing interviewing you. Know so much wisdom Yes. That has happened here. And I like to think of it in this manner. We have teams that can. for lack of a better word coach itself. In other words, you have teams I've been with. Their young or whatever, and you really have to. Provide more input leadership or whatever, and This team is a very mature small group. they police themselves well. as you said, they take care of the new players on his team well, get them going in the right direction or the young players. And they make decisions As a group and Steve is very good at. Being inclusive of asking opinions. we all do that. We have some very bright guys. and. That's kind of how do it but It's a very, very good question a very good observation on your part and certainly holds true for our team. Let me ask another observation going forward for the Golden State Warriors Long season. When you go to the finals of the NBA, you have to wonder about getting bored to some degree. You also have to be concerned and we've certainly seen in after winning their second championship. Other teams are going to adjust try to get more try to do it the same way and so what is it you Steve and the rest of the the staff have to do to keep it interesting and going in a positive direction forward. Well we have to be We have to find out what the next step is. Number one I mean every season is different. I suppose starting next season we're going to have. Maybe. He's into it a little bit. I'm not talking about when we start playing the real games but just in general, you know A. Short summer you have to come back. You have to get get into the grind again and go. I do think we'll have a lot of motivation, but it's where humans and. will be a process but. I think Steve has always tried to make the game. I think that is a real motivator for a lot of people have a lot of fun together. We laugh at each other a lot. And We have a lot of depth and so. If for. A game or so someone is. Not playing at the level that. We know they're capable of playing someone else steps it up and I think there's a lot of. Give and take in that regard that keeps us on a good path. and then lastly, this is very competitive team we have some really. Really, focused people in that regard and they they like winning like playing. They they they will like defending their title. and. So you count on all these things, but to start will be probably a little mushy. You know three seasons have been that way before when we've had these great great success, we get we get good work in. I'm not saying that but you know you start off Takes a little bit to get back in the groove, but then we do we've got a little bit over a minute and a half and I think ron as you look back on your career one and also this experience over that three year period with the warriors when they win two out of three NBA Championships what is it? That means the most to you? It always both down to the same thing, and that is it's the people. Around you? the. We share a bond with the players who been here that will. Go on forever for as long as we live. that special we have bond is coaches We have You know I look at Bob Myers General Manager Fabulous Guy. He's GonNa to be. we'll have a bond together the rest of my life. it's you. You made your all of these things and people. and I always said this and not. Not Always being obviously in a successful situation like this one I have successful but. Every stop I made an NBA. For example, I could share the same in college. I value that stopped because of the people I met. And What we do is the people occupation to people business. We have our players we have our fans are our team really treats fans well, treat they treat everyone well. Anyone has who approaches them, and this is kind of what I would say will be the highlight for me when all said and done, you certainly saver these championships. There's no question about that. But the they're like to the Olympic wreath. You know it's Green run day. It's Brown the next which means you have to get started again but the feeling. That the relational aspect of connectedness that all of us together is the special thing. Ron I WANNA. Thank you very much for your time.

Really bad news about the US government apparently striking out against crypto currency exchanges internationally, basically saying their jurisdiction is the entire planet will get into that story. But I use diction is a whole human race. We're GonNa talk about the sun or I guess one of the sons of Joe. Biden apparently smoking crack. Photographic evidence is now there's also now alleged some video with you in the studio. Tonight it's in It's nobody and tell you what if. Mr Biden wants to come by the church I'll drop some acid with them and Figure it out. And Chris. Yes. Quite that interesting. Though did you guys hear about this Laptop Story Oh? Yeah. Oh. Yeah. With this Joe Biden inside hunter. Could be sigh up or it could be a record assias. Kerr everybody. Everybody involved is completely out of their mind as crazy as everything is going on these days, it doesn't really surprise me. Well. It's not the first time that a son or daughter of a high ranking politician has been caught with crack cocaine wouldn't even be the first time. They'll high ranking politicians been caught with crack. Oh, come on. It wouldn't be the first time Little Biden was with Kathy. That's how he got thrown out of the air. But nonetheless, it is winning. Daddy's got back. Go to prison like I did no. I go to prison for weed. In fact, Joe Biden himself said quote my son like a lot of people we know at home had a drug problem. He's overtaken it. He's fist. Well, that's folks he knows it home folks he doesn't know he throws in prison. Exactly. He was one of the most ardent drug warriors Oh. Yeah. Reckless. Family Yeah Yeah exactly, and that's one of the points that I thought was really important to make tonight about this one, and this is so common with these politicians in their family members they always end up in some sort of plush Rehab Center and no criminal charges whatsoever and Oh, they're this is private when it was was Jeb Bush. Fair yes. Yes. It's a private affair when it happens to them. But but our our affairs are socialized. Crazy is that they're getting more and more. You know open about the fact that the system is just as corrupt as it is there was a video that was released. Where a superior no supreme. Court judge of New York was basically his wife attacked a cop and then. No no it was taking. My kinda woman. I had nobody she was being. Cuffs in whatever and and the Supreme Court judge attacked the COP wow he assaulted the cop and nothing happens nothing happened Israel. But what was crazy about the whole story was that he was using his powers he was they knew he was court judge. They knew and he was saying on video and. Not, only though he didn't even have to say that they knew but he was also using his apparently his kids are cops or something like that. And who's threatening them through his kids being police or something, but it was just so out there saw the family connection right? Right was just open the club. It was just so out there and the COP. This video yes. is on video and you can you can play the audio wanted to probably I'm on air but the the COP actually at one point says you know you're making us look bad like. Comes out and admits it like I know this is how it works, but you can't you can't say that. Video. On video right it would be so strange to hear judge telling the truth right. Now, I wouldn't know what? You mean, what's his name wasn't that bad Guy. Who got me Singer. Yeah. Kissinger you're off NAD. What are you talking about? Three hundred eight nece thing is a good cop if he wasn't that bad, he lets you walk out of the courtroom well, he could have done a lot worse. His first sentencing you mean yeah. Guy Could have done for years state prison, which shop you know it was would have been. That's about the borderline which I would have been able to start appealing I mean to appeal to your captors and say abuse me less. There just seems to be something wrong with that. That's what you know. Try Getting abused and you'll find you want it less. Yeah, I. Mean Sure. Sometimes you pay off the mafia because that's what you gotta do to survive. Yeah, and I will survive because I will fight another day I can't blame you. It's just the whole situation that you would be later then apology apologetic almost as to the people who are GONNA POW genetic I'm giving a rational assessment of what he did and judging his character by that. I'm not. I'm not supporting M. Judging Him I'm just not judging him as harshly as I could because he judge me harshly as he could. That's Absolutely. I think. You're just kind of saying how it is not necessarily how you feel about. Yeah okay. How I feel about the situation is my government went to war with me for no reason it stole a big hunk out of my life. It's stall woman that I loved very much killed another woman. I loved very much. I don't like it. They owe me. Well, they'd probably never owned represented luck. Yeah. Good luck NFL I'd rather take it and military surplus when they saw. Them, just going away. I don't Andrew Operations. Plenty to scavenge. Alone. I will I will accept you know with our operations, but I wouldn't mind some reparations from the people who who were doing or participating in that tacking in the first place. Well, you did get some you got some Manchester, Fifty, thousand people who actually did the taxpayers? Yeah. What you should do is is Stretches scratches settlement out of the out of the police, and then use that to pay back the taxpayers or US fifteen thousand of it to pay back too late. Yeah. Yeah it's Can Be Open if you reopen well, one of the things that you agree to is that it's You won't soothe officers individually I think it's part of the. which messed up, but but I think that.

Got You certainly more attention maybe more donations, but it's kind of attention you didn't one. Guy He I didn't go there pretension I went there to have some beers and play. Anyway so It's kind of a lot with people when I play music, there's just like, Oh, you're so special I mike both no actually I'm not. They would never think I was special if I was standing up onto toothy that's that's why. That's not matter. Okay. All right. So Today Grant County Washington.

So I want to bring Mike back here because I'm Super Confused Mike I'm going to try in Gold Bar Washington I, try to recap what you said Okay and I'm sure I'm going to mess something up you perform. Let me try to recap this place you performed at a bar. There was a woman there who was feeling sorry for you because you're in a wheelchair, same woman happens to be a former police chief who had a body fell on a fall on her from hanging. It's like a suicide that fell on her and caused her some sort of injury. She filed a claim of some sort regarding that and and then she became a thought. And I'm not sure where what I'm missing or like. Where's where's it going from here? Wasn't there sleeping? She was pinup girl right. Where is she got busted? They just announced today on the news locally she's being prosecuted. She drew sixty seven thousand dollars in labor industries and she was sidelining as they pinup girl promoter. What is Labor and Industry is when you say she drew sixty thousand dollars hurt at work when you get to work we, we have what's called labored industries in Washington. Okay. Okay. For not being able to work that was the code it was the political code that didn't make any sense that helps me. Welcome the whole cheating to work in the whole time. A special events for people like me to go raise money. So she can suck some of it I simply because she's a but I knew that she had been a police chief, the day I met her I never trusted her. So I stayed away from from her good move. He was like all your best friend, but she's been a cough and I might. Not right about that you. Avoid it or like the plague but finally it caught up with her and now she got arrested and she's been charged with what fraud of some sort. Fraud yes. Because tuned to beliefs sixty, seven, thousand bucks I just thought it was very hilarious ended up. That's not even that big of a fraud. Thanks for tying. That's Bits Felony Felony level though Oh man. Thousand Dollars in. Yeah. Thanks for for all that together Mike appreciate it and and good instincts did not trust the former police chief who was acting like she wanted to help him. Right she came. Oh, you're you're in a wheelchair look at you oh, we can't help you. Tell us you were there. So. Yeah. Don't trust the police. There may be some good ones out there, but it's hard to discern and they may instead arrest you and you never know what they're gonNA do. This is what happened during you call the CAP indeed. So let's go back to the story here about this laptop apparently the story as I understand it is this hunter Biden who's one of the sons I don't have any I, don't have any kids. These politicians have, but he's got at least one and I think I've heard of another thinking he had to one died the other one's working on it. Okay. Yeah. Because this guy is apparently allegedly according to photographs that were found on a laptop that the man allegedly brought to a computer repair shop to have something fixed, whatever it was, and maybe he so cracked out or whatever. But he forgot to laptop you just left it there I presume the you know the place tried to contact my that's in the story you know they try to reach out and they couldn't get in touch with them. Maybe his phone got turned off I whatever. Do you were dealing with somebody who had no particular memory because he was a lush one thing you could do is call him up and say. Apropos nothin and say, Hey, you after your laptop shop do you want it back and he said Oh my God what's on that laptop? I. Don't even remember having a laptop. That would be interesting. Human Human Engineering. Oh, you're saying you would do that to somebody who wasn't Hunter Biden No, I do that to somebody was. If I. Had any dealings with them, but I wanted to know if if he had anything to hide I see, that would be an interesting way to find out just come up and say, yeah, you left your laptop here with all the pictures on it. Okay. How he would react yeah. So yeah, they're kind of post. It sounds like it might end in jail sentence it could be and who knows what all's on this particular laptop but so far the information that has been leaked out and apparently it was leaked to. The New York Post and Rudy Giuliani or Rudy Giuliani leaked to the New York Post or something like that. So let's see Rudy Giuliani is garbage in one of the reasons I, distrust that he was up to his ears and nine eleven. No down, he used to be the mayor of nine eleven. Isn't as Giuliani he republican yeah. He ran against Ron Paul is the mayor of over nine eleven. So. Anyway that's the basic story. Is this Hunter Biden guy left this laptop supposedly and the guy who was fixing it to hey report the the who the repair shop was and the do there is super interesting. I would not want to be named as repair shop. I mean just the the repair shop is. Wants to be involved in this basically whoever this guy Z. concerned that people would entrust me with their laptops. Well. Sky With out with my laptop trumpers would. trumpers would hear. Estimate people may like it when you do nobody trusts a turncoat. Yes. Jannati. Even the people you turn to I don't trust turncoat well now we haven't. It's just like that. Lady Hon, turn a minute hold on. It's the contract that according to the story was a ninety day. If you leave the thing at this computer store for more than ninety days, it becomes the property of the computer store. So he's just doing what he wants his back, but I would erase somebody's hard drive before is areas are even if it was Joe Biden's son. You. Joe Biden's son there is. Joe Biden. Of course, you would Joe Biden I'd sell our. Family members off limits. Generally, you know to tack the Family Man there is you know I I think the problem is that there is like what you may have the right to do, and then there is the right to end. There's policy. Politics though. Right. Legal Ethics and underwrite business ethics I'm telling you about business ethics is that you run a shredder on that hard drive for you sell you don't I mean he's not selling. Before you do anything with it you don't invade the privacy of your customers. Yeah. There is not a customer anymore. Abandoned property might be, but that doesn't necessarily justify that but if you don't want this customer back. Then he slow. Star ticks and it means that I will go away. Then you the trust that I normally extend to businesspeople. told me now to keep by equipment toll free numbers eight, fifty, five, four, fifty, free look you guys are absolutely right when it comes to every customer except for politicians and their immediate families screw up if.

We're talking about bandon laptop that was left at a computer repair shop that the ninety day limit expired on as far as how long you can leave thing before it just becomes the property of the repair shop turns out it was allegedly laptop of Joe Biden's son, and there are apparently some pretty nasty images on their including one that is shown in the Daily Mail article about this with. What is alleged to be Biden's sleepy sleeping in a bed. Literally with a crack pipe hanging out. Okay. How hard for me to believe in less he was sucking anti pipe because he have any crack because. Crack left he's not asleep someone. Could it there? Them. Please don't say that word in that context it's crazy just that you know the this picture came out and they actually admitted it like that's the craziest thing it's like Oh. Yeah it was me. Well, I don't know if he's admitted that. Didn't tying indirectly in that his lawyers kept trying to get the machine back from the guy. Well, I mean he's had a drug problem. Supposedly his dad's his dad says, he's beaten it right back. It's believable that apparently still putting up a little. Fight and it's like It's close to admitting that he had a crack the pictures real others better than that. He's cracking remember that one of the things that's just a photo there's also a quote Raunchy unquote twelve minute video that appears to show Hunter Smoking crack cocaine while engaged in a sex act with an unidentified woman. So there was no denying this at all was there as well as sure there is a deep fakes. Sure. Point is well as numerous other sexually explicit pictures. So so and that is a great point deep fakes are getting really really good. So stated receipt I mean and I'm telling you what I'm giving this guy a lot more benefited the doubt than the liberal media given from. But I will say it's possible. I can also say that there are people in recovery who keep souvenirs of they're using days as Iran. So it would be interesting to look at the data on those files because that maybe has reminder of his bottom. What can't those things be faked as well as those can be faked as well or you might actually keep it because he just happened but put a little note in your diary saying this is part of my reminder of my bottom nobody asked why you have it. One thing is for sure and that cannot be faked is a payment via the any pay two point zero, which is here and it is better than it's ever been fastest crypto payments, I, think that you. Will See way faster than a credit card now used to be any pay one point Oh might have been like three to ten seconds. You know usually three, but sometimes ran a little only facet of credit card and then was usually faster than a credit card. Now, it's definitely faster and that's true. If you're using specific wallets, edge wallet hand cash BITCOIN DOT COM or dash wallet, you're going to have no problems if using any of those wallets if you're using coin Omi. Sorry it's not working right now. Now, the guy's Aucoin Omi apparently are looking at this and they're considering implementing the necessary changes to make their wallet compatible with any pay which would be awesome. So the idea is, let's encourage them to do that by going to pay INC DOT com slash upgrade. If you're coin user, take a moment, go to any pay INC dot com slash upgrade you can learn more about.

That is there, which is to put a piece of software called an adapter in between that serves as a client to their servers. He don't know if the average person is going to be willing to do that. Implemented right well, you know right now we're just trying to get the basics taking care of here nobody any pay inc dot com slash upgrade. I.

Dot Com, slash upgrade go there get the contact info for. Me and I think exodus also there and a few other walls that aren't yet quite up to to the task of of twenty twenty level payments. So we're back to the story here at the Daily Mail. This is about Hunter Biden. He's the son or one of the sons of Joe, Biden, and allegedly there was a laptop that was laughed at a you know repair shop they ended up owning that because it was a allegedly abandoned and some of the material includes some nasty photos in and even a video of Hunter Biden engaging in sex while smoking crack. says. Hunter has heads concerned that brings. Considerable personal problems. President trump has repeatedly mentioned during his election campaign. The twice married father of five one child is by a former stripper has a decades long history of alcoholism and cocaine addiction as well as crack cocaine abuse. He was thrown out of the Navy reserve after failing a drug test Biden said about must dispose but he sounds like my kind of Biden said about him quote my son like a lot of people we know at home had a drug problem. He's overtaken it. He's fixed, and as we pointed out earlier, that's the way that the. And famous get treated when they have a drug problem the other folks the average folks get thrown into jail cell forced into treatment against their will forced extraction of their wealth by paying fines to courthouses and police, and of course, that just impoverishes them ever more. They get out of jail after being locked up for six months for smoking crack than they have no money left whatsoever. They don't have their apartment anymore. They have nowhere to go their family has disowned them in where do they go? Well into the nearest alley or wherever it is that some people might have some crack for them crack. House. So, how's crack Alley Yeah car wherever this system and this war on drugs does not make things better for the average crack user but Hunter Biden no problem. This won't bring him any additional difficulty in his life whatsoever. And the thing is it shouldn't anybody. Yeah it because there's no point in spending money to ruin the lives of people who are doing a great job of ruining. Rents right. The consequences of using drugs should be the consequences of using drugs. No more no less. It's just the thought like crack cocaine to all drugs like you got enough problems, everybody do we really want to make the situation worse? Well, if you if you're an ego maniac, the child bit of experience with. and. And you know the and you smoke crack you feel like a god for a little while that you don't look like one. Oh No, you don't look like. Look like like Pashas. But. Even if the shocking new images will hardly tell well informed voters anything, they didn't already know they're unlikely to bolster Biden's image a wholesome alternative to the current president. What is it gotten its packages? However while hunter has a controversial business record Republicans have previously struggled to show his father was involved in it the. President currently has a sizeable poll lead over trump, but so did Hillary Clinton in two thousand sixteen before the FBI chief at the time explosively announced he was reopening investigation to her emails days before the election there hasn't been this Ha- that hasn't been lost on either Republicans or Democrats according to The New York Post. The emails reveal Hunter Biden introduced his father. Then US vice president to a senior executive at Ukrainian energy company Barista less than a year before Mr. Biden put pressure on government officials to Saka prosecutor who was investigating the business open case you thought for a moment hunter Biden was just some innocent little crackhead son no, he introduced he introduced. He knows the line. Is Actual Parody Song. Parody of black holes. Son Yeah, but it starts with a different STU a bodily part instead. Okay. But it's a real parody like you're not just cooking this up right now. was. It was black hole sun I went to crack. Okay. So you did cook it up a little bit. I. Cooked up that crack. Hunter Biden introduced Joe Biden to the Ukrainian company but did introduce them to correct that. That is the important question. and not from Marion Berry he got reelected.

So according to the New York Post, which is this being reported also in Daily Mail Hunter Biden, the son of Joe Biden. Apparently connected somehow to a Ukrainian energy company named charisma before Mr Biden put pressure on government officials in Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who is investigating the very same business that his son introduced him to the board of directors. that. So just to be clear Hunter Biden isn't some sort of innocent family member right? You can. We were talking earlier about this store hold on we were talking earlier about the computer store and the idea that you guys as computer tech guys and I've done my share of computer repair to so don't disagree with you generally if a customer leave something with you. You would want to completely eliminate whatever that data was. Once they've they've left it there and they forgotten about it tried to reach out to them, and they're not responding eventually becomes your property and you can do with it, and the appropriate thing to do is to wipe the hard drive I don't disagree with you, but if it is a crime syndicates boss's son. Then I don't think there's anything wrong with going through that stuff. I would probably go through it. If in that case, I would probably use I mean there was stuff on there that incriminated the father. So the Sun Yeah in accomplice and Crime Yeah Okay I don't I would invent special case right just because why did they leave their laptop with somebody who at war with them crackhead? He probably left it there and forgot all about it I don't know this just I don't know I don't he's got enough money where he doesn't eat the pipe is so conveniences this is using one wrong to justify the other I just don't know it just seems to from. Pol. For me to. White. Nobody tells the truth even though he's a politician and that's not his job. Okay. With throwing that computer out and if somebody else finds it and extracts the publishes it. Okay. But wait wait Joanne. Let me ask you a question about that. Okay. So. You're throwing it out. Do you call the Keane Activists Center or whoever right like in town and let them know? Hey, by the way, we just put out in the garbage a laptop that was owned by Hunter Biden. It's currently garbage. Do. Right now, I call hundred Biden's lawyer. And I tell them. I'm having an auction. All right and And that's not. Right and will be used as a restitution fund for drug, war victims. Hukou. ME That's creating You know and I'll start the bidding ten, thousand, twenty, thousand a is thinking a million, a million. That's. Dollars. But with the national enquirer in on the budding and with Fox News. On the bidding and maybe even. Yang these tactics. No would you do that with this I don't. Go how far I could go. Go that far because then I'm not jacking them on my own behalf, right? I'm Jacky on behalf of a nation that they went to war with a hundred years ago for no reason, these tactics you may want to have a backup. Yes. Coming in, they're probably come. Maybe, not you but whack that drive if they can. Points make sure you have a bet you. You is put it out as a tarrant corrupted with that. We have a dead man's switch that compromises your key as soon as you're dead I hope. Lawyers whoever finds the next laptop is listening because this is a great idea. At this, take this idea. So according to the the emails. One of them in the emails of the says quote. Thanks for an opportunity to make your F- to meet your father unquote from Vadym, put Husky and adviser to Barista's board in the Ukrainian energy company that benefited from knowing Joe Biden because he got the government to stop prosecuting them. It was sent to Hunter Biden about a year after he joined the company's board on a reported salary up to fifty thousand dollars per month Whoa a lucrative appointment that it is a lot of. A lucrative appointment that has long fueled Republican accusations of possible corruption in the Biden family and a conflict of interest issue for the supposedly squeaky clean senator. Canty just imagine him. You don't know me I'm a bad dad was vice president I got botas the size of your head. You Call Them Rock SICOM Bodas because you chip your rocks off my boulder. Earlier. Email sent in May of two thousand fourteen from the same person at BEREA SMA or from. Baristas. Number three executive according to the post asks Hunter Biden for quote advice on how you could use your influence on quote on the company's behalf. The Post said the correspond so. He got the seat on the company's board. They wanted him to use influence to benefit the company and they gave him a seat on the board paying fifty thousand to fifteen thousand dollars per month. Can you imagine not just that he got millions like over three million from the wife of the mayor of like Leningrad really something or Stalin what was that for? Well. We don't know maybe he's a fine lover but maybe Maybe. He's got a tongue like electric Ilan on speed. Meka. Hold his breath for a long time. Maybe that email is also on this laptop. The Post said, the computer correspondents reportedly amounting to some forty thousand emails and thousands of text messages. Quote flies in the face of Joe Biden's claim that he has never spoken quote never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings unquote. However while the emails published by the Post may suggest by junior was ready to trade on his father's. They. Don't definitively show the vice president ever did meet any BURRITO executive. The Biden campaign insisted yesterday it's record showed no such meeting ever took place also, no printed receipts were found for any crack in. Abidance spokesman said, the newspaper quote never asked the Biden campaign about the critical elements of this story. Moreover, we've reviewed Joe, Biden's official schedules from the time and no meeting as alleged by the New York Post ever took place spokesman stressed that successive investigations including by two Republican led Senate committees had all concluded quote the Joe Biden carried out official US policy towards Ukraine and engaged in no wrongdoing we've got the best government money can buy. You can take that to the bank because. Totally, going to indict the the former vice president, right that's going to happen when the guy is clearly the. Favorite boy of he state he's untouchable. That's who the media loves. He's so untouchable. He actually molest children while on video in public. Yes. That's craziest thing I've ever seen it. I can't believe I info Joe Biden Dot is there Video from go go watch. Allegedly caresses these children in front of their parents looks like they're being offered human sacrifices and see for yourself. Joe Biden Dot Info the trump campaign claimed meanwhile, the Biden team response confirms that the information on the computer hard drives genuine. Some sceptics claim they may have been faked social media giants attempted to slow the spread of the store until its credibility could be checked. Now, this is another interesting aspect to the story. Yeah. I've never heard of that before they ever slowed the release of any news about trump nope. For the credibility to be checked twitter flag the material as quote unsafe unquote as part of its. New election posting rules while facebook said, it would rely on fact checking partners to decide if the Post report was legitimate the unsafe rating apparently came from their election rigging department who thought it might be inconven- incompatible with their mission of rigging the election trump's spokesman claimed abiding campaigns carefully worded response did not preclude the possibility that he did meet the Ukrainian saying quote Americans deserve a full accounting of the conversation Joe Biden had with hunter and what Joe Biden discussed with Vadym Paul Karski as Mr. but of course, if they get all of that, it's not like it's GonNa change anything if Joe Biden false because of this. Will then you just get Kamala Harris. So you're gonNA get her anyway. I don't think Joe Biden's GonNa. Live much water being the liability that he has and also.

He is the collection's curator for the pro football hall of fame and the Pro Football Hall of fame in Canton. Ohio will be getting the right cleats. The Denver Kicker Matt Prater War when he kicked the longest field goal in history. Sixty four yards against Tennessee and that broke the previous record of sixty three yards. That it was set back in one thousand nine hundred seventy by Tom Dempsey. And then equalled over the years by Jason Elam Sebastian Janikowski and David Akers. I guess the place to start Jason in is for you to explain what a curator at the pro football hall of fame does well. It's kind of a fancy word for a caretaker acre But you know it's kind of a museum sermon in its tha my job is to Make sure that All the history Behind all the what we call our artifacts and historic documents is recorded and that we keep keep track of The location's everything whether it be in storage on display you know few people realize that When they go on a tour of the hall of fame they only They see less than five percent of our collection The other ninety five percent is in stored. So it's a big task to keep track of all those All those pieces of history. And then it's also my job to make sure that it's all being preserved improperly that's part of our mission at the hall of fame is to make sure that we preserve football history So future the generations can enjoy it so utterly Big Task to make sure that it's thing preserved in storage but also on exhibit as well. How much of a football fan are you? I mean obviously you understand a valuable things but when it comes to football you have to evaluate what's valuable and what's not sure. Yeah you know. I'd sits You know Footballs been probably sport. I've been following the most since I was a little okay. My Dad was a was a big football fan. He was a Los Angeles Rams Fan and he you know he You know that was the sport we we. We watched a in the household. And it's it's always been it's always been my favorite and So you know it it you know it's kind of a must that you'd be a football fan to Kinda realize you know the significant what's going on and you know I. I did have appreciation for some the history. Yeah I always liked watching you know a lot of the old NFL selves about some of the historic players but You know once you start at the hall of fame you you really You know get a chance to know all the you know the history going back to you know. I eighteen ninety two. When you know we'll put shovel? Finger was the first signed a professional football player. So you know I I watch all the Games names on on Sunday Sunday ticket and you know I you know whenever I see a records approaching tune in and you know I know while we're GONNA have to go after you know such such artifacts when when When things happened yeah I was just GonNa ask you? How do you determine airman something that is worthy of the hall of fame as an artifact? Well you know we you know it's You know when you come to the hall. You know you're not gonNA see as you know all you know all the uniforms from you know all you know fifty fifty men that were on the nineteen seventy two dolphins. You'RE GONNA see pieces of history you know that we you know a piece here a piece there that we can you tell a story around in you know enhance that that moment so we you know whatever a great moment you know happens in in. NFL history whether it be a super bowl or the MAC and reception or the greatest comeback from back. You know we try to Try to collect that that moment and then also we we uh seek You know records whatever they they happen You know for instance Matt Prater just hit that sixty four yard field goal and you know whenever something significant or or if a player reaches a milestone you know for instance twenty consultants just reach fifteen thousand yards receiving you know when when you know we ask something from the Atlanta Falcons. May they send us is Jersey or his gloves in his shoes. And whatever players reach that ten thousand or fifteen thousand you know milestone Or you know fifty thousand yards passing. You know we always look for something and we also try to honor the MVP as well you know we always display the The NFL MVP uniform. You know in our pro football today to gallery you know the defensive MVP And then also the Super Bowl MVP as well so as some some of the things you know we we look for but we also get you know people will call us and you know they'll have things Stay you you know stashed somewhere or they had a family member that played pro football and and we get things just from the general public as well. What is some of the unusual things that you've you've been able to curate over the years from Professional Football Jason well you know As far as unusual. You know we're GonNa get the occasion where it's something you know doesn't look like it would be football related and that usually will come from General Fan van For instance we have a piece of the goalpost from the Nineteen forty-five Nfl Championship. Between what was then then the Washington redskins and the Cleveland. Rams is actually played in Cleveland and it was one of the coldest. Nfl Championship Games ever and There was a rural back. Then that if a player went back to pass in his own endzone In at that time the goal posts on the goal line player we're back to task and his past hit the goalpost Atlanta in the end zone. it was safety and sure enough early in that game. Sammy Baugh went back to pass and You know hit the goalposts and two points for the Cleveland. Rams and that turned out to be the difference in the game The Cleveland Rams ones fifteen to fourteen. And so you know fan was you know was smart enough into notice save Piece that goal post at at that time go Some some goal posts were made out of pipes Kind kind of like the water and sewer pipes that you see and So it's just looks like a metal pipe system and so we have that taste. That's pretty unusual. Then we when you know the The Green Bay packers a few years ago Well I say a few years ago it was about fifteen fifteen years ago replaced the heating system at Lambeau field and they sent us a PD piece of heating oil and This P. This this heating coil. It goes back all the way to the ICEFALL that that season You know the the packers. I installed all the their their heating system and and that Heating System kind of broke down during the icefall ice bowl and Actually helped create create. The terrible conditions. the heating system was turned on the night before and created a Lotta condensation and when it was time undo To kick off the equip the stadium manager told Vince Lombardi. We can't keep this heating system on the temperatures you know thirteen below. We can't keep it go. They had to turn off the heating heating system and so the feel because it became like a sheet of ice. And if you watch the videos that game name you know not only. Is it cold for the players. The players are slip citing all over the place and now this is all because you know it was called but it was. Actually you know because the field was frozen so we just have a yellow heating coil You know that they sent us and you know these things you know if you didn't we know the history behind You know they They would just lose significance So we make sure to. You know it just looks like a piece of Gionta Dante you would throw out and unless you keep track of that history You know the these these artifacts loser significance. Yeah I would point out to everybody there or a great stories with almost every piece of artifacts that they have and the pro football hall of Famer Jason Aitken's is with us.

There's been a lot of talk about Professional Football College football the health issue whether athletes should be paid. And all of that. But there's a book out so you may want to check out it's by Daniel. Flynn and it's his latest book called the war on Football Saving America's game and Flynn takes different look in perspective on football. He says is everything they say about. Football is wrong. Football players don't commit suicide at elevated levels dies younger than their peers or suffer disproportionately from heart disease. In Fact Flynn says the pro players live longer healthier lives than American men in general and Flynn says in the war on football. It's all about the grab for the buck. In the billion dollar our business and that the fear over concussions and other injuries could put football on ice. You know the other thing too. Dan You say is that you're trying to rescue reality from hype. Tell me about both of those. Let's start with the hype. Sure I mean we. When people used to talk about football being controversial they would talk about player deaths in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight? There were thirty six players who died from football hits. I mean to me. That's unbelievable that this happened fast. Forward to last season there's two players that die from collisions. Collisions This year has been to play the conclusions. They were players last year. More kids last year. Who died by getting struck by lightning on football fields than died by getting struck by other players in other words the game getting safer and because the conversation has shifted from players getting killed on the field to players getting concussions? I think that a self offers an indication of how much safer the game is. Then what once was. Let me give you an analogy here. I've been over in Iraq and Afghanistan and if you go back to World War Two and you take a look at the injuries and the number of soldiers that died on the battlefield war being excessively to some degree I suppose compared to something voluntary like football today over in Iraq in Afghanistan a lot of soldiers lives were saved even though they may have been hurt badly. And then when you take a look when you're talking about the number of players that were killed. Yes they've come. Along with advances. I think on field medicine certainly a lot better but all you've done is replaced death for serious injury avenue. I don't think so I mean I mean. Let me give you another military technology. I was in the Marines for eight years and all during my eight eight years in the Marines I wore what was called a web suspension helmet. That was the type HYPOC technology up into the twenty first century. That marines wars helmets in other words a piece of fabric protecting your head from the hard shell of the helmet. Now that that technology was developed by John Redel the the rebel Helmet Corporation during World War. Two and it was conscripted by the military To use their World War Two football got rid of that helmet technology in the nineteen seventies. I was still using it in the Marines up until the twenty century in other words the technique. You know the equipment that we have for. Soldiers Marines is about thirty five years behind the Times of the equipment that we have football players. I think there's something really twisted about that. But there's also something says something about football that the equipment that they're using Farro paces the equipment that we even give to our soldiers and marines. Yeah but there's another aspect of it to that. I don't know that you're considering that is that the players are bigger. You have over three hundred pound players you have a faster game. You've had rule changes in all of that that is accentuated the combativeness of football I think play players are bigger faster stronger. But there's a lot of evidence that bigger faster stronger doesn't mean deadlier. It actually means a safer game if you look at the players who are getting can in custom most. They happen to be the smaller players. If you look at people who are getting concussed Sport by sport women tend to get more concussions than men And so I think there's this sense out there. That bigger faster stronger means more dangerous game but the statistics. Don't bear that out whether you're talking about concussions or you're talking about player. Data bigger faster stronger meant deadlier. It'd be seeing more players die would be seeing concussions going up the last few years. We've seen concussions go down in the NFL. I I don't have a lot of faith. Fatemeh count that they have but but they have gone down substantially the last few years. Well yes I agree with you about deaths but on the injury side. They've gone up considerably. Take a look any on any Friday or Saturday on the number of of teams in the National Football League that have players that are not playing or injured or in some capacity or already have been lost for the season and it's much higher than what it was ten or fifteen years ago plus a pro player gets hit between one thousand and fifteen hundred times a year in games and practice and each hit can be the twenty. G's or more and that that's equivalent of a car. Going thirty five miles per hour. I mean anytime. You hit a human body at that speed. You're going to cause serious injury well that that's a statistic that said a lot but obviously a football player running at the fastest that a human being can go isn't the equivalent of a car going thirty five miles an hour and he doesn't take take it is from an impact but a person going as fast as a human person going twenty miles. An hour is not the equivalent of car going thirty five miles now. You're wrong about that. People repeat a lot. That doesn't mean it's true now but you're wrong about that. Let's move on to something else. What about this? I agree with you about the the fact that part of this problem is the grab for money from lawyers and and others everybody trying to make a nickel off of the issue on this. Tell me more about that. Well I think what a lot of your listeners probably don't know is that four hundred you know about ten percent of the players who were just suing the NFL never actually played a down in an NFL game name. These guys who were on taxi squads they may have gotten cut during preseason but they never actually made it into an NFL game. I just find it hard to believe that. A guy who's WHO's played in Pop Warner in high school and college? He may have played in other pro. Leagues got his permanent brain injury from a cup of coffee that he got in the NFL and not from all all the other leagues that they've played in in these type of lawsuits. There's always a significant number of players a number of litigants. Who are Malangre's and I think if you look at the lawsuit you can't help come away with that? Not only because a lot of these guys never actually gone into a game in the NFL. But you know there's guys who kicked and five Games James Backup quarterbacks players who played in that replacement season in one thousand nine hundred seven played in three games and that was it. I'm not buying You know the fact that they got injured in the NFL permanently. I'm not but if you look at a guy like Tony Dorsett. He's there's still a lawsuit against rebel. He's suing Dow but he wore rawlings helmet. He wore McGregor helmet. But you look at a guy like Conrad. Lindbergh varies in his tops card wearing a bike helmet. He's suing rebel. Eric Dickerson on the cover. Sports illustrated wearing that bike helmet when when he breaks. OJ Simpson's record. Why is he doing rebel? I think both the rebel part of the lawsuit and the NFL part lawsuit had a high degree of just bogus to it. That's not to say that their players that didn't come away from the game with permanent injuries. There are but I think when you have a suit like that. With with people piling on and Jumping Thing on the litigation bandwagon you tend to make people suspicious of the motives because a lot of these guys Just just didn't get their injuries in the NFL. I agree with you about that part because I think you're always going to find. It's almost like ambulance. Ambulance chaser doctors or ambulance chaser lawyers. It's always going going to happen. Somebody rear ends you and all of a sudden grab your neck or grab your back and say you got a back injury. I think you're absolutely right about that. But I don't know how you differentiate between the two and make sure that the people that deserve it get taken care of and trying to weed out the ones that you're talking about Daniel. Yeah it's almost impossible because when you're talking about brain injuries the type that we're talking about here most of them aren't going to show up on a cat scan There are things that you can prove. After the player is dead you can find out after the players data if he has. Cte Or if he had a neurological illness and in the in the study of the NFL players from one thousand nine hundred fifty nine to nineteen eighty-eight that the federal government undertook a few years back They found that you know there were there were elevated rates of neurological disease deaths amongst the player players. But you're talking about less than one percent of all of the players having those neurological death We're talking about a third of all former. NFL players who are suing win the League. So I don't think a third of the players that really meshes with with the the statistics that we have for how many truly are suffering from these these large disorders. It's it's clear that the that the rates are elevated there one about the the settling of the suit by the NFL with the players here recently. What does that say? I think it says that the NFL wanted to move on that. This was a public relations nightmare. And I don't know that the NFL always handled the public relations or even the reality of this issue. Very well I the to me. The suit was not hurting the one league that the players were suing the NFL is approaching ten billion dollars in revenue. It has the highest rated television show on TV and Sunday night football so the NFL's doing just fine and they're doing just fine given out seven hundred and sixty five million dollars but if you look at youth football if you look at high school football they're not doing fine. You'd football was down six percent of its player population last year. High School football for the first time in twenty years had a decrease in player participation. So there's a lot of parents out there because of the suit starting to think that signing their kid up for football means signing them up for organized child abuse of brain damage. And it's really hurt the game at the lower levels not so much. A A football spectator sport. But football is a participatory sport. The four million kids playing every year. That is really hurting. We got about thirty seconds before we have to break Daniel but Is that going to change. In your opinion I you know I don't. I don't know you know. Football could become marginalized the way. Boxing has become marginalized in this country and in boxing. Used to be very much mainstream sport. or you know no. It could go the other way just last month. We saw the oldest tackle football league in the country shut down by a principal at an elite private prep school in in New Jersey. So so we're starting to see that. The War in Football Award attrition and you have leagues and you have players dropping out of participation. Daniel Flynn is with us again. The name of his book is called the war on football saving America's game and he says from concussion doctors pushing science that benefits they're hidden business interest lawyers clamoring for billion dollars settlements in scam litigation. Football has become so big that everybody wants a cut of the financial pie. This is a very interesting subject. It's a controversial Ursel subject to some degree and we'll continue talking about it especially the youth football aspect of it. We do that as we continue across the country and around the world we've got you on on sports byline.

Some of his book is the war on football. Saving America's game let me continue on a little bit on the youth front of all of this. Obviously and I think you'd probably agree. The brain of a child is our teenager is certainly different than that of an adult and I'm just wondering about what science says about the effects of hits of playing football the ball have on them as compared to say the pro player. Well the the the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health when they did a study on pro players initially they found a about twenty four percent increase in neurological disease. Deaf they did a study and in that re- study they found that the rates of a love contributing causes of death. In addition it causes of death for for neuro. Neurological disease was about three times. The rate of what it is amongst Average American so. There's whatever study you look at its elevated amongst the pros and it tends to be concentrated in the skill position players and not in the linemen which surprised a lot of people when you look at high. The school football players. The Mayo Clinic did a study last year of high school football players in Minnesota at mid century and they compared their rates of neurological disease to that of members of the Glee Club and the choir and the high school band and they found there was absolutely no difference between things like Alzheimer's in those different groups and so it would seem that. If you're playing football at the High School Level Science tells us that you're not gonna you know turn out like junior. Say Our our player like that But they're obviously play some neurological issues. That may come up from playing a long career in the NFL. Particularly if you're playing skill position but taking that aside and thinking about the other injuries that you can get from playing football. Did they do any study. On the elevations of that. I don't look at that as much in the book. Because the controversy diversity now is is mostly on head injuries but you make a good point most of the injuries that are occurring not just in football but all sports happen to the rest of the body. Children's Hospital title in Boston just came out with a study of all of the kids that they looked at for the first decade of the twenty first century only one and a half percent of all injuries were on the head and not all of those injuries. Were concussion so ninety. Eight and a half percent of all injuries to the rest of the body. Most of them were two legs into knees and so we all of the attention chin is on head injuries. As anyone who's ever played football or basketball or soccer will tell you that head. Injuries are not the most common injuries. The most common injuries are doing things like knees. He's or runner's knee or rotator cuff or ACL. That kind of thing so concussions. Get all the attention but very few injuries or are actually concussions but then certain Parents be concerned about body injuries. More than the concussion or even if concussion is one of the type of injuries you can have. Wouldn't that be enough to make you say. Hey wait a minute. I don't want my son playing football. I think you know. Even before this controversy started there are a lot of parents that were very skittish about having their kids play football and and football's not for everyone. It's a it's a rough game but there's a certain type of kid out there that you know if football didn't exist that invented because there's a certain type of boy that likes to roughhouse likes to you know I have a young son. He likes to tackle me like the jump on me. I don't know where it gets all the energy but that's the way boys are I think in our culture. It's not not that. Football has grown particularly hard or rough. I think society has grown very soft. And we don't really understand The ways of boys anymore when they have ed what energy in a classroom we tend to give them Ritalin or adderall. We should be giving them a football or basketball or soccer ball. Instead we babysit them in front of an xbox and I I just think society has gone very different direction very passive aggressive antiseptic indoor world that we live in in. Footballs the opposite. It's a very rough in muddy game and so naturally there's a culture clash going on there. Know what you know about this from having written this book would you let your son play football I would. He played flag. Glad rugby this past year if he doesn't WANNA play football that's fine with me But he you know he tries to play all the sports and he'll I'm sure he'll gravitate to the one that that he's good at you know. Troy Aikman is a friend of mine and he and I had a conversation one time about his kids playing football. He says I wouldn't let them play it. And I think for somebody that played the game like he did and had concussions and others. I've talked to a lot of my friends. I had a friend of mine I asked who had a baby and I said well. He's a he's a big kid. It looks like he's going to be alignment he said. No He's GonNa be offer Troy Aikman's football experience was different than ninety nine point nine percent of everyone else who played football in strangers. That sound my football. Experience is a lot more normal and typical in troy. AIKMAN's I played football pop warner. I played football in high school. And that was the end of it for me. And that's that's the way it is for most people in the science shows that if you're playing football at that level you've probably not gonNA come down with long term neurological issues. The way the guy's the pros are so I understand toy coming from. I remember that last play of his career While we're the guy from the redskins drove him into the turf And so I I I get where he's coming from not gonNA gain say His opinion on that but I just think his his experience with football is so much different than everyone. Else's four million people play Klay tackle football. There's only about two thousand that are playing in the NFL. This is a kid's game not an adult game and you bring up a good point about the fact that in the national football league and pro football and and the head issue that you really can't determine anything until it's really too late after your career is over with in most cases but if you just look at it as a sport with the injuries injuries other than the head you know Part of the analysis. I'm sorry I just don't think you know look I love doing Football and I do play by the play but I just think that unless you have somebody so committed to a Daniel. I don't think you should put your kid in that position. Well everyone's going to have a different take on that and even before we're the controversy you know there were people wouldn't allow their kids to play football and nothing has changed really with with regard to that extent. There's a lot more people looking at the game with kind of a skewed skewed. Look at it. What I'm trying to put forth in the book is to correct some of these These false information. That's out there you get. George will's column alum or or in Malcolm glad well some of the biggest writers of America claiming that football players die in their fifties. That's why you know. The federal government looked at every player. Who who played between one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and nineteen eighty-eight all the pension vested players and they found decreased mortality in other words? They outlive their peers. And so when you see a guy like already done oven who we lost this summer You know he lived till he was eighty eight people might think well. That's odd for a football player to live that long. It's not odd. They generally live longer. They have better health outcomes and it shouldn't surprise anyone that that running up and down the field for two hours a day during practice and having the dietary Lifestyle lifestyle that they have. They don't smoke that's GONNA lead to better health outcomes and so you know you have this propaganda effort out there by George will and Malcolm glad well but the science against rebuts that and that's what I try to do in the book but you do have others like Terry Long Junior say al and Dourson as well and all of those Lives ended either by their own hand because because they were dealing with some things that a lot of people say was caused by the brutality or the collision Football we do when they looked at the suicide rates of the NFL players. And this is the most shocking thing for a lot of people with this study is that the suicide rate amongst. NFL players is actually much lower than it is amongst amongst men in society. In fact it's two and a half times higher amongst men in society than it is amongst football players. It's just that whenever a football player kills themselves kill kill himself because it fits into this media narrative we hear about it. Give an example. What I'm talking about a little bit? After junior CEO kill themselves there was another Sandiego athlete. Flee to play for about ten years for for for the padres Enzo Hernandez killed himself. Now under Hernandez was didn't mean as much baseball as junior say outdid to football. He didn't didn't even get an obituary into San Diego Union Tribune but you have months and months and months of coverage of any. NFL player that killed himself. And that get that creates creates a very distorted impression amongst the public reality is different from what the hype is there. The reality is the NFL players actually kill themselves at decreased levels levels vis-a-vis bales and in the general population. One of the things. I kind of smiled and laughed a little bit about when I looked at the The name of the book the War on Football Saving America's game I mean it's never going to go away. You and I both know that. Why because of the money that's involved in college game is big money? I mean when you've got a national championship that's going to create billions of dollars players in the college ranks and then you've got what the NFL is generating revenue wise. There's always going to be a platform developed players In order to move on to the next level I think always as a spectator sport. You're right if you've processed football as what we see on television on Saturday and Sunday. That's not going away. You're right but footfalls ball's already going away as a youth sport. It's not like something that's going to happen ten years from now it's happening now. T. Leagues are are contracting from ten to seven teams you go out and you see some of the teams that go out in the field. They don't even have enough players to have a scrub squad to shine up their starters. One of the things I did for the book I went back to a team that I was cut from. When I was eight years old I went out for an eleven team and I was cut? Because they didn't have enough uniforms for the forty or forty five guys went for the team. Now this team that I went out to They had they had sixteen guys at practice. They barely had enough guys to feel the team on Sunday That the rules require them to have so football as a youth with sport. It's already dying but I agree with you as a spectator sport is way too much money. Involved I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon but Daniel you know as well as I do that can be said about baseball as well. I mean Major League Baseball lamenting that. They don't have very many African Americans playing on teams in the major leagues. Because kids aren't playing it like they used to twenty or twenty five years ago. And the same thing can be said for Hispanics or whites in this country playing Playing Youth Baseball as well but the big problem I think here is is the fact that at the youth level high school included. They don't know how to handle football. I mean they don't have doctors on the sideline for practices. The the trainers are student. Trainers in most cases coaches in some cases are volunteers. Who Don't have any experience and background in order to despite AH things like concussions and and how to deal with other injuries so if indeed you know high school football and youth football is going down? I it's it's because it's just just got it's just not something that's sustainable. Why think there's been a change in the culture and You know maybe it's not sustainable. But I think the cultural reaction to football is a wok different. We like to watch it on Sunday. I think now more than ever but as far as allowing our kids to play the sport. There's a lot of parents that are a little bit iffy on that. And and I think one of the reasons is because there's a lot of propaganda out there attacking the sport that was surrounding this lawsuit now that the lawsuits gone. Maybe that goes away. My sense is the lawsuit Being settled away. Did it's going to inspire more and more lawsuits. That's what we saw with the football helmet manufacturers in the nineteen seventies there about sixteen sixteen or seventeen companies that made helmets. They all went away except three or four of them because they got sued out of existence and I could see that happening with Youth Leagues. It may become cost prohibitive to play football because the insurance in the lawsuits is going to make it a sport that no one really can play Who's not very wealthy? Would you agree with me being that the NFL settlement will trickle down both to the college level and the high school level. Eventually I think I could see that happening. I hope it doesn't happen. That's a nightmare scenario. Because that will put put football out of existence at those lower levels will be an excuse to get rid of the game. But if they're settling for seven hundred and sixty five million dollars that's GONNA pop up a a million lightbulbs over the heads of personal injury attorneys. And you're going to start seeing some more of these class action suits and because brain injuries particularly concussions concussions that something that you can only diagnose clinically. You can't look at it under a cat scan and say ah-ha this guy has a concussion In that sense it's very primitive. You Know Madison. That's being used is not only to diagnose concussions but to treat them because all we can treat concussions with is rest And so it given the fact that you can either prove or disprove. Someone's when tat a great injury from one of these concussions you can see how that lends itself to litigation. Yeah I can also see trickling down from the other injuries as well. Not Just concussions concussions. Because I think you're right it's going to be very hard to prove that and could be very costly but I think once you've opened the door to one type of injury it's going to open the door to the other the Mike Webster case the way the NFL handled that. Because Mike of course was the first one who filed the first football related brain injury disability claim and the fact that When you take a look talking about how they handled it? Five doctors supported webster's claim including one hired by the NFL an approving the claim the NFL board stated in writing that football can cause permanent armant brain injury and this was back in two thousand. What does that say why it says that the NFL is a huge corporation? And and a lot of instances offenses they act the way that huge corporations often act If you look at this documentary that's coming out tomorrow. on PBS. I'm very skeptical of some the claims that this documentaries making but the fact of the matter is the. NFL really. Didn't do itself any favors when you have Roger Goodell meeting with ESPN executives and then in a few days later the ESPN exactly saying you know what we're gonNA. We're GONNA take back our sponsorship to this documentary the NFL doesn't always you know. Act in their own own best interests or in their players best interest and I think Mike Webster case I think they ultimately gave him some money at the same time. Sort of denying claims so It was a bit of a schizophrenic response and I think leaving aside the the brain injuries or the long term injuries most people can agree that compared to other major professional sports sports the NFL hasn't done as good. A job of taking care of their retirees say Major League Baseball has done with retirees from a lot of players players. The suit was almost like the bargaining table by other means they may have lost these strikes the gains that they left in the bargaining table. Way Back in eighty seven hundred.

Children up to the age of six and Texas and across the nation continued to lose their health coverage has according to a new report from Georgetown University and Dunkelberg with the Center for public policy.

Doctor visits between birth and age six and so the kids who don't have insurance during that age we're we're really missing an opportunity to detect problems early and prevent them from coming lifetime issues. After a decade of progress improving access to care. Dunkelberg says Texas is headed in the wrong direction for two years in a row both the percentage and number of children without health coverage have gone up between two thousand sixteen the two thousand eighteen more than twenty three thousand kids up to age six lost coverage a thirteen percent increase last year.

That's according to the AARP of Wisconsin. The group is renewing its call for state lawmakers to easy financial burden that they face legislation has been introduced to provide a tax credit of five hundred dollars for certain expenses incurred by family caregivers. Despite despite bipartisan support previous efforts have failed in the legislature largely due to cost concerns but Helen Marks Dick's of AARP. Wisconsin says it. Shouldn't we looked at as only a budget issue. It's a gesture to towards acknowledging. How much work family caregivers are actually doing to keep their family? Only members in the community to ease the concerns of opponents worried about the cost of a tax credit. Dick says the plan has been modified in multiple ways. The amount is five hundred hundred dollars lower than the initial proposal. And it's been crafted as a pilot project for a single tax season to see how many people would actually use it over the summer. Wisconsin Downton adopted a two year budget.

Org Houston Astros the of course twenty seventeen seventeen world champions of Major League Baseball. The Houston Rockets have become a very relevant team under Mike Dan. Tony James Harden has been there superstar for a number of years and Chris. Paul gets added to the formula for that running style that the Houston Rockets WanNa want to play. I love the old seven seconds or less. VEDIC sons were Dantonio. Was the coach of that team. And he had Steve Nash. Running the show Steve. Nash and James Harden Arnab obviously very different players. But what that Tony and what every coach has really gotten out of James Harden since he got to the NBA. I know that he was kind of an afterthought afterthought in Oklahoma City by Houston's finally got the formula right with their basketball team. They were the number one seed in the regular other season Everybody would agree that entering the postseason they were on a crash course for a meeting with the Golden State Warriors in the the Western Conference finals. Twenty eighteen eight series that many consider to be the actual Ed Ba Championship. I asked Astros the Astros. I'll they went through a very difficult rebuild. That saw them jump over frog.

Got The block and come from our Miller and he goes to the goal. Why did he get in no signal yet? And they finally Palmer touchdown a late signal. But at touchdown run of four yards. Furthermore Miller over the right side got the plot takes it in holding onto the ball. Aw and he's just in for the touchdown that Houston Texans on top with thirty five to play in the first six to nothing. The follow up down little exclamation point. Backup it's one. You're listening to sports overnight. America with Jeff Risk. Talk with your damn. Now you're talking man. There's so much talk about when it comes to the Houston Houston sports landscape whether it's major league baseball of course the the taking and subsequent rebuild and How the measure by the metric by which we measure success in sports the elusive championship? And they are the most recent champion. So so Houston Astros perhaps the talk of the town but yes they have the rockets and Many believe that the west goes through gold old state and that continues to be true for the fourth if not the fifth year in a row if you WANNA give credit some of those Mark Jackson Golden State L. Warrior led teams but Mark Jackson lead warrior teams by the. It's the Houston Rockets of late. A Better record in the two thousand seventeen twenty eighteen eighteen regular season figures once. You had Chris Paul into the mix that you're GONNA do okay. That Chris Follow is going to Al.. James it's hard to even though you can only play with one basketball you're you see these quote unquote super team attempts in you know you saw with the New York Mark Nixon. Two thousand ten stoudamire and I don't know that they signed a second free agent to be honest with the in New York in Knickerbocker land but Right now The Houston Rockets always seemed to be like they're in the mix but they got to compete with mark. Cuban who Has You know the personality analogy. That is going to be a lot more public than that of you know and I would say the Daryl Morey as the face of that rockets front office but they found ways days to build teams there in Houston a in all three landscapes of the three of the four major sports. They don't have it. NHL team they have an MLS team. They have the Houston Dynamo there and they have another number of other sports teams from Tertiary Leagues. That we're not gonNA gotta get into this hour just because of the enriching content that we do have with the NFL the Major League Baseball and the the NBA teams there in John. Whether they're playing at the Toyota Center the rockets the Energy Stadium. And then you have minute maid Park Mark I've been to minute maid park I actually saw one of the first Astros Home Games as an American League team back in twenty thirteen and law all that did not take them long from that team. That wasn't very good and you know going back a few years before when the Astros were still over. They're in the National League Central Division and Jose Altuve was really the only player that they had. Dallas Heikal kind of made a name for himself beginning getting in two thousand thirteen and Look at that three hundred monster that the Astros avid twenty eighteen. I would say that they are poised to repeat GotTa Jockeying for position in the American League West with the Los Angeles angels of Anaheim. Who are story in their own right in twenty eighteen gene but the astros? The only that they have to worry about is complacency. I do believe that if they don't win the American League West that they will still be one of the top two runners up in the American league and I would trust them very much. I think that they're not only built to win the world series but they're also built to win a one game playoff regardless of where they are in there pitching rotation because they got three guys between Garrett Cole who they picked up prior to the two thousand eighteen season Justin verlander a guy that they got at the deadline in twenty seventeen and a guy that helped them carry them help. Carry them across the finish line. And then you do. You have the old regulars you know the Carlos Correa you have Jose out too. Vague you have Lance Bregman Uriel Garra you know you have George Springer you have all these guys you know all these guys that she took with high picks you lock them up early. You know you said Hey. Oh you know what. You haven't proven a lot but we see your potential. Here's a contract. This is going to help he bar team together or a Carlos Korea beads out Francisco. Lindor a couple of years ago for the rookie of the year award. And it's just amazing that crop of shortstops chiefs that we've got. I would throw Havi or Byas Carlos. Correa Admiralty Simmons. Yo you know they just play the game different way they you know they slide differently. They tagged differently. They they play the Middle Infield with soft hance dance. Houston's got two of those guys at Al Two hits a ton he's not just a story because he small I mean he's not muggsy bogues. You know if you really watch basketball ed you really remember Muggsy bogues you. Would you would remember that. He was a fourteen minutes tonight. Game a Guy Wasn't really a featured part was altuve as not a story because he small too as a story because he just hits the ball all the time it you can put it out of the yard. He was the most valuable player a year ago. And a well earned title and a common sense finally prevails when we're giving major league baseball awards when you speak to Jose altuve winning the American League. Mvp a year ago could of had sour grapes from this Cleveland. Fan The play in general. I might be a little bit our about Korea beating outlander but Cleveland getting screwed in the rookie of the year. Vote is something that goes back a really long sandy. alomar actually wanted Kenny. Lofton left boss to a guy named Pat Lists Dash Manny Ramirez. Lost Out in one thousand nine hundred five to a guy named Bob Hamlyn. Everybody remember the Hammer. Bob Hamlin for the Kenzi zero and we could keep going down air rabbit hole with Albert Bell losing to move on and the People Nineteen ninety-five but we don't I need to go there talking about the MVP in a positive light. We're saying that they got it right with Dallas Kaikal the hallways in the CY young conversation. I believe the data word appropriately went to Corey Kluber a year ago. Another Cleveland Ma. Mama fighter ways ways to drop my own team in the Houston has pleaded one game wild card. I believe that they actually defeated the New York Yankees and loss to the Kansas City. Royals in the In the AFC. S Remembering that right. I may not be remembering that right but I've just bad I mean Houston was the Astros in particular or we're a team. I mean this is how bad got three straight years of one hundred losses twenty eleven fifty six one six twenty twelve fifty five. I am one oh seven. They got kicked out of the National League after that and they went and Dr Near set American League history with just fifty one victories. Two hundred eleven defeats they start to right the ship a little bit in twenty fourteen in Twenty fifteen They go to the division series and they lose that in five. That's you know that's always tough In Twenty fifteen it was the Kansas City. Royals that bastard And then two thousand sixteen they go eighty four seventy eight good for third place in the American League West. They finished eleven games back in that activision and they win the division. They win the American League. They win the World Series in seven games in two thousand seventeen. Aj Aj Hedge Job that he's done He was named the manager prior to the two thousand fifteen season when they made their first playoff appearance. So minutes guys like Tito Tito Francona of the Houston Astros to playoff appearances. Last time they were in the playoffs was losing that world series of being swept out out of that world series under Phil Garner in two thousand five year before believe that they actually want a playoff series for for the first time prior to that swept out one three games to one in ninety nine three games to onto ninety eight and swept out in ninety seven so They didn't even play a game with an opportunity to clinch a single playoff playoff series until they advanced to the gas and in heartbreaking fashion. They took a three games to lead into game sex and they could not happy the Saint Louis Cards. They handled it the handler. Just fine in two thousand five but again they were swept in the World Series Cup. All of the A Big names that you might have seen from the Houston Astros recently. You know all about you know Jason Castro. Jose altuve a Dallas Kaikal Justin burleigh under a year ago. But go back a little further. Royals wall was a legend Lance. Berkman patrolled that Centerfield when they have the hill the flagpole out there. They've done away with that at mid minute maid park and I think that that is exactly a common sense move Ricardo Hildalgo Roger Clements game there for a little bit. It was it was him aunt. Pettitte the they kind of buddy system from the New York Yankees down to play in their home state of Texas and busy. Oh and Bagwell there forever. Can Ted Kennedy Steve Steve Finley Jose Cruz Dickie. Thon if you WANNA go back a little bit before my time all right. That's enough on the Houston Astros. We'll talk talk more. Houston sports on the other side. My Name's Jeffords Sports overnight America Houston edition and we'll be right back and springer hits one high in the air at pretty deep to right center field going back but it is the shield he is at the wall leads. That's how I yea towards the Astros lead to to to Davies throws hidden in the area right backing up Santana Santana and this is going to get Carlos correct. It's a Grand Slam. It just like that.

I know that the rest of that three point nine seconds didn't go particularly well and I know that the Michigan wolverines route to a championship. Berth in the two thousand eighteen tournament did best. The Houston cougars in round onto but a lot to smile about their in Kunar country. especially if you're football fan. I know it's been a little bit tough to keep a head coach employed. But it's gone pretty. Well you know major applewhite hasn't really proven anything yet. But when you see Kevin someone being hired away by Texas am and then the brass ring. Tom Urban gets a job offer from the University of Texas. Those jobs that you expect your your head coach to leave your program for And you are. Brian was is successful. Despite the fact that you learn what he was a little further down on the road Great Greek program that they've got there in the American Athletic Conference they've They played well in the conference. USA and and they've played well in this new conference that they're in they beat Florida state in one of those neo coveted new year. Six Games And Great Sith Greg Board. Junior was a great quarterback on that team. You don't Kevin Someone's last year. There was a lot of talk about about that team going undefeated. You know you actually played. Larry Fedora Southern Mississippi team in that particular conference USA Championship. You're not necessarily you know and it hasn't been although you know they. They haven't lived in the fast lane there in Houston This isn't Boise state where they just reeled field off. Seventy six seventy wins in seventy six games or whatever it was Chris Peterson dot did that was so crazy and they went to Washington and prove that he was a little more than a fluke. You know when you've got people thinking that Boise State is what led to Chris. Peterson success and not necessarily boise state itself but the lack of competition that they had in the western Athletic Conference and then in the mountain West Conference when they did move over there. But you don't for a team from the American Athletic Conference and arguably you know what's really the difference between being the first first team out of the power five and the last last conferences in the power six. It's just a matter of distinction and affiliate station and something that worked out because of probably basketball even though half your basketball membership doesn't feel the football all team You know I think that there were favors done to the big east courtesy that were not extended to the American Athletic Conference Wants Louisville Departed for the ACC the Atlantic coast kaffirs so You know and you feel bad for the Houston's the Cincinnati is that move up there why get the carpet pulled out from underneath them. Once they move up into certain conferences Houston was never. The big issues was in the conference. USA So they've always been kind of a mid major and the other team in town there. The Rice owls John Heisman heisman coach. There they play for cotton bolls. Going back You know going back into the forties and the fifties Seven five Overall at both play they did win the conference USA Championship again. This is rice. This is the rice owls they WANNA conference USA Championship in two thousand thirteen. They had a conference title in Nineteen ninety-four but before that nine hundred thirty four thirty seven forty six forty nine fifty three and Dan fifty-seven they consider SMU The cougars as well as the University of Texas to be their rivals six. Aw Six Eric ads for the blue and gray but Houston largely not a factor What you're talking about college Football a ball or even Cinderella's within the sport I grew up on the Houston oilers the Houston oilers Cincinnati. Bengals the Pittsburgh steelers in my the Cleveland Browns all played in the AFC Central Division in the eighties. And you know when I first came into football Very close division. The browns wanted to eight eight in Nineteen eighty-five on they won the division again in eighty six eighty seven but Houston always. A thorn in. The side is very difficult to go down in the ASTRODOME and play They had problems figuring out the running game. They had Mike Rozier from Nebraska for a few years They had Alonzo Odds Ohio Smith. Lorenzo white but That was really on inconsequential. Because Jerry Glanville likes you throw the brock round. They had a guy in Warren Moon. Could you it. They had Haywood Jeffries. They add drew hill. They had ernest. Givens a few years later they out webster slaughter Over from the Cleveland Browns They were always gritty. AFC central matchups whether they were playing the bengals whether they were playing with steelers steelers. Or you know that that clip coming back by the way was from Nineteen Eighty nine playoff game in the astrodome or the steelers went into the house of horrors. Says it was called back that and you know they. They ended up winning because it was Pittsburgh in the playoffs. And historically. That's what Pittsburgh does in the playoffs. But Jerry Glanville perhaps best remembered for just being so laid back a a Buddy Ryan once upon a time to fight with Kevin Gilbride on the sidelines. The Astros or the the astros the oilers who played in the Astrodome They stuck around instill night the nineteen ninety seven season when they took the oilers name with them temporarily to Memphis vis but the state of Tennessee. They were Tennessee oilers. They were just the same in their first years in Tennessee.

The dodgers eleven. Seventy six and even the world series at a game apiece first ever world series win and Astros history now back to sports overnight overnight America with Jeff Rich. You're supposed to celebrate your I Victory in a series of some sort If the basis for that is the only time you reach previously that you'd been swept opt out but that was the case for the Houston Astros against swept out of the two thousand five world series. Four Games to zero at the hands of the is again led Chicago White Sox Bill Garner the manager of that team You know you talk about two thousand five. The Texans were just starting starting up the rockets. Were trying to get done. I think that's around the time that they you know they were Putting other eggs in that Tracy McGrady basket and it didn't work out two thousand five five around the time that yao-ming comes into the league. So what excites actually Yao. Ming came in a little a bit earlier. And that's the name of the Houston Rockets to remember for a long time but James Harden got to be his own Alpha separated separated from Westbrook and durant very early in his career and You know six years in in Houston I think that they've finally have team around him. That eh compliments in well at doesn't ask him to do everything at the same time. And I think the James Harden hardens game needs the brakes and it also needs needs to identify identify number thirteen as the man You know I was fortunate enough to see hard and play a game or two Ethically collegiate level for Arizona State. He was nice enough to stick around for two years and he needed that second year. I think James Harden a good case for not going not defaulting to the one and done. I understand that the money's there but if you can stance you Deal with the college life for another twelve months. A second a year is probably fairly beneficial to you. But let's turn the page a little bit you know. We talked a lot about the oilers prior to their departure for the state state of Tennessee. You know and how they had they did not go to a super bowl They they want to. AFL Championships back in their very early times and they were always just playing in a tough AFC whether it was the buffalo bills. Cincinnati bengals or. There are teams that you don't think today as very fierce competition that was the AMC rumor science in it was Jim Kelly was John. elway was pretty co- czar for that You know that was a time that Pittsburgh was down a little bit They went for Mark Malone to you bubby brister meanwhile the oilers and going back to the oilers but they had a a great quarterback in Warren Mood There reborn and forced to play against the former semblance of themselves Twice a year so I'm sure that the titans here it quite loudly from the new local Houston fans but this is a team that they've been able to embrace to a certain point They are a team that seems to have a ceiling of maybe winning on wild card weekend generally losing You know we go back through there. And it's not a long history and all he goes goes back to two thousand and two. It took it took them until two thousand seven to have five hundred season in two thousand nine. Gary Kubiak lead them to a nine and seven in season David car on Derek. Cars older brother Dirk are plays for the Oakland Raiders but They both went through Fresno state. David car the first pick out of the collegiate draft in franchise. History never had much of a line there in front of him and he Often struggled he he had a Buckeye in his backfield Rushed for five hundred twenty nine yards. It was not a great first season but slowly the Texans were able to add pieces. They add a little bit of stability in their running game with diamond. In the rough and Dominic Williams Andre Audrey Johnson was always a staple there was the team's best receiver basically his first eight years in the league. They had Steve Slayton Ron. Brandi was their leading rusher in. That was a sign of not very good times They did they did. Have Steve Slayton run for thousand yards in two thousand thousand eight in Erin Foster of course three years in a row of just putting it up for the fourteen hundred yards and twenty twelve twelve hundred the year before sixteen sixteen when he first came on the scene in twenty ten Abul Ben Tate took the torch from him Foster round you know the ad blue do and now they've had Lamar Miller Out of the out of the U quarterbacks Benny a struggle on Andrea Hopkins and Andre Johnson have made it very difficult to criticize that receiving core. But they've never really been about their offense offense there in Houston Always a very defensive minded team and in fact you know I took a trip to Houston in two thousand thirteen right before for the NFL draft. And we're ready to go to breakfast and I think we have plans to go to the breakfast club with a K.. Very popular dealers spot almost two popular for us to grab breakfast on Saturday morning and get on with our day so We played beat it to a spot called Baby Barnaby which which just happened to be around the corner and while we're waiting for a table as you do on a Saturday morning when you get out of bed until ten thirty You know see Guy Standard button-down shirt on talked gene standing in the middle of the street. And I you know I di Tappa a friend of mine that was with and they said you know it doesn't look like Wade Phillips. Looks like Yeah Kinda does so you know we we move on. From that conversation we sit at the table and the The owner of the restaurant is serving us and he of course ask us. We're football fans and tells us that we just Miss Phillips but in fact we did not miss we did not miss him at all. We saw him in the middle of the street. We didn't have a lot of conversation. And I really really dissect as defense and Tom how you could do. Better on the XS and OS and You know he was done in Houston after that season. That's that's when they built brought Bill O.. Rien over from the US from the Penn State Programme He had experience in the tree. They're in New England. And he still the man there He's got his quarterback. Now I think into Shawn Watson to Shawn Watson brilliant rookie year the Games he played he was among the most outstanding standing in football puts up those fantasy football points and if he could stay on the field. He's GonNa put up real points and look out if your Indianapolis Bliss in that division lookout. If you're Tennessee in that division Jacksonville Man. That's a tough out. I don't know the Houston's Jacksonville's level at this point the only thing that used to going for them is that. I think that they're going to have a better quarterback if Jacksonville keeps rolling Blake. Bortles out there. But it's tough to fire guy like Blake Portal's of you'll Jacksonville Jaguars because he just took a F. C. Championship game that you know arguably the Jacksonville could've defeated the They they did the Pittsburgh steelers but they just couldn't beat the New England patriots in other road to the Super Bowl. Maybe that changes in the twenty twenty eight hundred cs but in the present tense based on what we've seen now based on what we've project to see Jacksonville just wasn't enough. Maybe maybe Houston passes them. I've not giving them that credibility just yet becker change three or four games into this twenty eighteen. NFL FLC isn't but Bill O'Brien pretty decent job there This team has been to the playoffs. Four times in their history as the Division Champs camps in Twenty Eleven and twenty twelve in both cases they lost in the divisional round they lost the wildcard game in Twenty fifteen in twenty we six. They lost at AOL. Divisional around in that was a brutal brutal defeat Brian. Hoyer just not ready for Primetime. Your Golf a little bit of a law season. Jj Watt or earns. All that hype. You know how I'd be remiss. If didn't speak of the efforts put together thereby not just. Jj Watt but all the organizations that gave money a and everybody that you know that bound together as a community whether it was was the astros on their run to the world series whether it was Jj Watt Honestly modestly raising. What was supposed host be? You know a couple of thousand. A couple of hundred thousand that turned into twenty seven million for the city of Houston and appropriately. So and these are all these very controversial introversion choices but it was very appropriate for sports illustrated the The very popular magazine. That's been around since the fifties zoo deployed both Jose Altuve from the Houston Astros and. Jj Watt from the Houston Texans on the cover Of their sportsman of the year edition of their magazine. I thought that was A solid decision doesn't really single anyone out but it doesn't really take away from either one of them and I think at the end of the day the entire city of Houston kind of shares that award for their outreach in the way hey that again they They stuck together to rebuild the health. Each other they you know they they pouted onshore stores and insisted that you let these people in. You'll we have never had to deal with that kind of weather tragedy in either Cleveland Ohio or Phoenix Arizona so you know when the levees break whether it's Katrina whether it's Harvey You know whether it's the hurricanes that hit the The eastern seaboard Just a few years ago You know all Hurricane Sandy. I believe it was You know those are tough times by the stadium. Shaking sitting in San Francisco shook again. Recently by the way Shook again he may have Twenty eighteen but obviously the very famous world series in nineteen eighty nine. That was played under tragic circumstances or the New York Yankees you know. They came up short against the diamondbacks in two thousand one but They had one one of those runs. You know fueled by tragedy. The Boston Red Sox they won the world series in twenty thirteen so not a huge surprise that everybody was able to kind of absorb the blow that the Texans took you know. You're not just a football crazy town. Houston you're you're you're you're all round sports down you're gonNA for NBA Championships. You've already got a world series in your back pocket How about the Texans get you into the playoffs and maybe get you one of those? That's Lombardi trophies. That would really stick it to the Ownership there in Nashville right. Now if off the The expansion Texas win before the old Houston oilers. Do the the Houston oilers that were uprooted from. Where are they always belonged in the city Houston teams that used to exist in Houston or used to be called one thing the Houston Colt forty? Five's existed for three years and they became the Astros but ninety six games in each of those three seasons expansion. It's tough appreciate when you see a new team. Come into the League because you see that the Houston Texans. They were not successful full for a number of years. It was just short of a decade before they could go nine and seven th. That didn't even come with a playoff berth. In two thousand. And of course you know you also have to mention the Houston Rockets of years past They won every title. That Michael did in the nineties. Apologies allergies to the Spurs who won in nineteen ninety nine but to to win those in-between years. I know that you're you're largely forgotten. You're on those bulbs foray OJ Simpson car chase back in one thousand nine hundred four against New York next so the respect to that team they lost the Houston Rockets. Couple Times in the eighties ladies but in the nineties they got it together. Can they do it in the twenty S. That's the question that remains to be seen but stay tuned for years Houston Rockets in the NBA playoffs. Yes in twenty eighteen. My name is Jeffrey sports overnight.

Mitch McConnell rejected a call from minority leader Chuck Schumer to subpoena new witnesses for the proceedings for his part.

Children up to the age of six and Texas across the nation continued to lose their health coverage according to a new report from Georgetown which Town University and Dunkelberg with the Center for Public Policy Priorities says the report should be a wakeup call for lawmakers because too many children are missing out on care. We're at a critical time and their development. Kids are supposed to have fifteen doctor visits between birth and age six and so the kids who don't have insurance during that age we're really really missing an opportunity to detect problems early and prevent them from becoming lifetime issues. After Decade of progress improving access to Care Dunkelberg says Texas is headed in the wrong direction for two years in a row both a percentage and number of children without health coverage have gone up between two thousand sixteen in two thousand thousand eighteen more than twenty three thousand kids up to age six lost coverage a thirteen percent increase last year.

That's according to the AARP of Wisconsin. The group is renewing. Its call for state lawmakers to easy financial official burden that they face legislation has been introduced to provide a tax credit of five hundred dollars for certain expenses incurred by family caregivers. Despite bipartisan support. Previous efforts have failed in the legislature largely due to cost concerns but Helen Mark Dicks of AARP. Wisconsin says. It shouldn't be looked looked at as only a budget issue. It's a gesture to towards acknowledging. How much work family caregivers are actually doing to keep their family? Members empress in the community to ease the concerns of opponents worried about the cost of a tax credit. Dick says the plan has been modified in multiple ways. The amount is five hundred dollars lower than the initial proposal. And it's been crafted as a pilot project for a single tax season to see how many people would actually use it over the summer Wisconsin and adopted a two year budget. But next month revenue forecast could pave the way for a supplemental spending bill. Mike Mohan humble news service a recent. AARP survey of one thousand registered Wisconsin voters found. Ninety percent approve of the tax credit idea.

But they're racing in it and I don't think they should be and Delmar cancelled the Thanksgiving Day thing because it it was The prognosis was rain. And I don't know what the answer is The California thoroughbred board has passed a new rule. Saying you can't use the whip on the horse more than so many times but I don't think that's the reason horses are dying Strana at Santa Anita Pack back on the people that took care the course and since then thirty seven horses died at Santa Anita.

Problems won't allow him to join us today but Already source the guy that runs galaxy sports with us and already heard the beginning of the show. We've talked about this before future horse racing. What do you think it's really really up in media right now fred certain to get more and more publicity? These horses die at the southern California tracks. I've done a little research on my the audit in some of the local tracks Pennsylvania. Some of the other tracks around the country and they don't seem to be having the same problems so I just very tough to pinpoint what the actual cause of this really is well again the stronach's at Santa Anita fired the crew. And they rehired the boss but it might have been too late at that point. Twenty five or thirty horses already passed away and again they tried to say some bucks and got a different crew. That was managing the turf grass course and and the dirt course and so. I don't know what the answer is either but I can tell you is that Florida voted out horse racing Excuse me dog racing and maybe that has to be the answer. All I know is these are live. I've live animals. That have a lifespan of more than thirty years. In many cases and to be killed at the age of two three four and five to me is nonsense and again we saw the Breeders Cup and the bottom line is the final race. Mongolian groom drops drops dead. Fred is. You're talking millions of millions of dollars that are generated all over the country from these racetracks. I mean the people that dedicate their lives like Bob Baffert and delaying Lucas. I mean you know and for this to come up over the last couple of years. He's in a in a pretty much of an isolated bubble. That just indicates to me. There's got to be something about. The weather grew on the tracks or the weather preparing the horses. You know localized right in southern California. Yeah that's what I'm saying. I tried to save money and everybody scientist save money. Horses died and and folks one more time. I actually worked my college schedule on getting to Hollywood park and Santa Anita I would take a couple of classes in the morning I get Holly Park in Santa Anita and I take some night classes. That's how much I love horse racing a great gate but the bottom line is I didn't know Oh what was going on as far as The sport itself and I'd love your thoughts Sports Fred Dot Com sports Friday dot com. With of course already of course Already source of Galaxy Sports and arty. I know you've got some strong opinions on this. The NBA Ratings are down twenty seven percent so far on on TV. I find this astounding. I'll tell you why on Friday of this week. Both Lakers and clippers are on one of the two games and and since the season started almost every game on. ESPN every night on ESPN or NBA television or TNT. They'd it'd have at least one of the two southern California teams and Los Angeles the second biggest media market so explain. How ratings can be down twenty seven percent okay? Well you don't be changed. I was a huge basketball fan. I used to actually do the basketball on the radio in the early nineties and I mean Cherry Turkey aliens. I love the game love the way. They played the game of basketball in the eighties. Nineties and a big game itself has changed in such a dynamic way that I'm wondering if they're losing their audience I really do. I mean I remember for Larry Bird and Magic Johnson and those great series. And you know you have the seventy sixers with with You know they're great players. Charles Barkley Glee and Dr J.. It just seems to me like the game is different. You don't nobody really drives the ball to the company more. You're you're seeing you're seeing guy. I stepping back and taking threes. You know the the defense was played by grades like Dennis Johnson and people bad nature and Michael Cooper. You don't see that kind of intensity detested he on the court and I think it's translated into the ratings being down and that's one of my theories on all right. Let me throw something else. Soon there will not. That'd be Monday night. NFL Football. There's already no more Thursday night. NFL football this week was the last one of those and soon no more for Sunday night. NFL football so the NBA won't have to go up against that. So I imagine the ratings will have to raise a little bit. No Oh oh yeah. That'll help with Mesler. Are you kidding me have you. Let's be honest You know as much as they complain about pro football the NFL. This is that you know go belshazzar check. The Patriots spelled in the Cincinnati Bagel became a football. I mean you saw last night. How how? That's that's city in Baltimore was just Fire watches Lamar Jackson. Do his thing I mean you know it definitely has to have a ramification on the NBA. I think that will help them. Plus let's be honest for that season is way too long on what we're talking about the NBA. Let's send some special thoughts out. Yes yes David Stern and his plight I mean let's He. He sure did an awful lot for that league over his thirty. Something years. Commissioner Uh you know in front of me I got One of my favorite Publications Basketball Times. I love it I really do. I think it's the best of I mean. One of the best publications sports publications still remaining but even at basketball times is an article this month. Saying how much one of the writers Mrs Basketball All weekly and my point is. We mentioned this almost every week right here on sports overnight America but we had basketball weekly we had Sports collectibles weekly Glee. Now we've every two weeks. Sports illustrated now going every three weeks. No more es Pin the magazine. Sport magazine faded in the year. A two thousand but you've got galaxy sports not print but tell us about galaxy sports.

When I came back you know We decided we were GONNA start a High School Sports magazine called CIS Sports Fangs Iran. I ready course course. Yeah Yeah we have that magazine and we tried to profile the fault hundred high schools in southern California at the time and it was fantastic He was great we had. We had wonderful wonderful advertisers and we branched out. We got ready to report rams score museums and things went very very well for a couple of years and and then you know we started to get into some tough times and financially. We figured out that you know after Hammerton and losing x amount of thousands of dollars you know you have to look at the reality of it. You know to produce the magazine to get everything done. I mean. Never mind the fact that you know the you have to have a full staff I mean. It's it's comprehensive. I have six employees the Galaxy Sports for the Sports magazine.

So we're going to talk now right here on sports overnight America this week the late Marvin Miller alert. Who changed everything for the players? Change everything in the game of Baseball and Ted Simmons who I met once a fine catcher better offensively and defensively but but interesting about Ted was. He was also very very political. I met him once a gene McCarthy thing when I was a teenager and he was a big gene McCarthy supporter and not many players could have said that way back in nineteen sixty eight but anyways the players who didn't make the veteran players players let me throw some names out to you already. Are you ready. I'm ready all right. How `Bout Dwight Evans Year? Would you vote for him. If you that vote I gotta say he's one of those guys right on the cusp. I see no love ballplayer though. I thought he was a fine line hitter but even a better outfielder with a great arm. So you wouldn't vote for him. I guess I'm a lot easier than you because I definitely would vote for him. All right. Dave Parker occur. Tire it's Would you vote farm I definitely I think they've Parker should be in the hall of fame because he doesn't have a long long career in the athlete he played what thirteen years in thirteen years I think he was fairly dominant one of the best players in the game at that time. Can I throw name out real quick. Sure sure Richie don't call me Dick out. What do you think about that one friend? I'd vote for him in a heartbeat. Me To her. He made enemies but That's why against the. Here's the problem soon. Soon nobody's remember these guys as a lot of the voters pass away. You're going to get different voters who never saw these guys play. Steve Garvey dodgers and padres basically dodgers. He got some votes but he did not make it in the hall of fame again. Your yes I was a huge Garvey Fan and one of the reasons why I say Steve Garvey not only was he very very good and led the dodgers to a couple of world championships being shipped field of say Russell loves and Garvey but the thing he did he showed up every game and he played every year a hundred sixty two games a year. And you know other than CAL ripken. I can't think of anybody to play as many games as Gar played and he also really brought San Diego Eagle Baseball from the brink of elimination when they had their great team in eighty four. I definitely go and Steve Garvey. Yes Sir folks This is sports overnight. America that's our source. I Galaxy Sports. I am Fred. Won- email US sports fred at AOL DOT COM next week. Coal is Marc Mancini. We'll be back. I've been saying this but I want him back because art art wants him back because he's GonNa he is the world's worst handicapper and so I wanna hear what he says so we can go the other way that week as far as the national football league or any else in sports worth we are brought to you by bet online dot. Ag Bet Online Dot AG right. Now we're talking about Baseball Hall of fame this week. Ted Simmons made it the Great Marvin Miller or made it to passed away in two twelve. I wish he'd made it before he passed away. Lou Whitaker Tiger Second Baseman did not make it your thoughts. Sweet little in nineteen eighty four Lakeland Florida. When I was working for Mizuno sparky Anderson? said he was a hall of Famer. So I'm gonNA stick with what's party sent on that one all right. Explain something to me okay. Allen Trauma was defined shortstop he is in the hall of fame his second Baseman for more than a decade was Lou whittaker why is one in and one is not in question what else I said it starts with a P. Politics I think you're probably right And maybe racism. No there could be attention that as well friend I hate you could say it but I look and he got a guy that I was thinking about the deserves to be an all SAM how. `Bout Hodges when I go way back way back Russians sure. I think incredible as a manager. I mean the miracle mets. I mean you know what I'm saying and Fred. I think the reason he didn't make it as a player. So many dodgers did make it. Robinson's Neider Campanella. APPEA- we re so I don't think they like to put too many guys from seeing team in the same era dave concepcion of the reds. I mean you could make a case. you know he was one of the heartbeats of that great red machine of that era. He didn't make it so I mean you know it's tough bratty. I spent many afternoon in the left field. Bleachers advisor stayed watching the reds of the dodgers in the seventies. And I'm GonNa tell you what a great great group of players that are a big Ramsey. She had I mean I think until mortgage and what about the rolls. I'm sure that's we've worked out over to the bone but did Tony Perez. Get in. Yes I think. David Concepcion was the classes shortstop. I do think I'd have to vote for for Dave Concepcion in the hall. Okay you see. I've done this show off and on. I mean I've done hundred shows as you have. You're the first person who agreed with me. I swear to God that's because you're old enough to remember darnold exclude as shortstop around. I mean wow I'm thinking about that you know. Yeah all right folks sports overnight America and you know on this show. We talk sports politics again. I used to open the sport shows by saying doing. The whole world of sports is crazy all right the new England patriots. The television team goes to Cincinnati to tape tape some television show and the PAT say they don't know anything about it but apparently they figured out the signals by accident of course when they went there. Do you agree with most of us that. How many chances do you get that? Goes back to the Super Bowl in two thousand three. Where the the the greatest show on turf I've talked to to Kurt Warner about this personally. And they knew exactly what plays we're coming before the they even and that's how that's how. They always scored seventeen points. So I mean you know I. I don't WanNa get into all the the truly concert but that's just very very sketchy on my behalf and at what point in time can you please ignorance you know. And I didn't know anything about it when it continually. He seems to happen every couple years. Some sort of kerfuffle comes up and you know come on I was born in I I last night all right. So that's the Patriots creates and that's football. We haven't talked a whole lot about the astros and Baseba- no you can't no you can't can't give the dodgers the world series. You can't give anybody the world series and you're not gonNA take the name off as far as the Astros are concerned. Money doesn't matter so how does baseball. How does Manfred Resolve and making sure this never happens? In the future. General Manager had another a problem at one time when he went to Houston. The Jeff Liu knows his name yeah and I think I think they accused him of stealing. A bunch of the cardinals insider information off their computer. So this is not a isolated incident and It's so sad but you know I mean come on. Let's go back to the forties and Fifties Leo Durocher Grocer and and those guys were. I mean you know if you weren't you weren't trying those inside. I already let let me interrupt here. I think that's different. If a manager or player can still assign from the other side. That's certainly legal. That means the other side is hiding their signals well enough but electronics annex. I think is totally a different world. Don't you think I agree. I agree but you know what I mean for years. You know when you got a second base and you know you're the pitcher was was dared tailing. You held your right hand out. WHO's GonNa be throughout the hitter on the outside corner for you held your right hand out? Maybe it has been going on but the electronics onyx and sending it through TV through somebody and then to bangs on a trash can to tell me curb you know one thing on the trash can is a is the fastball. At that's just blows my mind. I mean Girardi is really hot about it. It's all over the newspapers here in the Pennsylvania area. I mean 'cause that was he was one of the teams that you know got being championship prior to the Astros going against the dodgers so I mean it. It might cost him his job in New York. ORC All right In thirty seconds. How would you rate well? You know what you're going to need more than thirty seconds. So what we're we're GONNA do you know we're GonNa go to Adam Byrnes AG and then you hold on already source and we're GonNa talk about to the dodgers getting an F.. In the in the winter baseball meetings and my comment is okay. Let's go back twenty more than a quarter of a century. I'm working for Campsie in in Los Angeles and after one of my shows. Jackie Autry calls me up and she says you're the only one that understands and I said what do you mean you know. We're not GONNA offer Jim Jim Abbott enough money and I said Yeah. Yeah figured that out and I think the dodgers are offering just enough money. They offer just enough money to the coals and to the arrest the red domes to have these guys say we'll come back and talk to Adam. Byrnes Abedin Llandough AG and then Already and I already have galaxy sports Freddie sports overnight America.

I love the numbers Adam. Love numbers Online plenty of numbers and added welcome to the show. Hey guys how're you doing doing fine. All right let's start talking with the college. Football December twenty eighth. We've got the final four and collegiate Pigskin Ohio State Clemson. LSU Oklahoma one. Odds can you get right now. Bet Online DOT AG Ohio state versus Clemson. Kind of odds can get on that. Yeah right now. CLEMSON's Clemson's a two point favorites and We're seeing quite a bit of money on On clemson in that situation I mean. They're a team that sort of kind the fly under the radar and I think some of our sharper betters are are kind of looking at that. But you know having said that a lot of the money money that we're GONNA take it's GonNa come in today or you know the weekend of those playoff games and obviously there's four sort of marquee teams teams Kinda coming into that playoff and it'll be interesting to see how it ends up playing out but I think that You know we're GONNA. We're GONNA BE CHEERING AGAINST CLEMSON DOT COM couple of well. You're on my side. I think the Buckeyes of Ohio state win even though most of my relatives are at Michigan or Michigan State but close enough to Ohio state. I liked the Buckeyes here. They've got a lot of guys. You can do a lot of things and we'll just see what happens Of course when he never loses a Clemson but today's never lost it Ohio state. So we'll see what happens All right at better bet online dot. Ag Adam Burns you got LSU. Hugh and Oklahoma sooners last team in but They're pretty good I mean. LSU's a massive favorites the other thirteen and a half point favorites right now And they're the favorites to win at all and no surprise with that. I mean they've they've really. I would say overachieved I'm not saying this is a law. I think Oklahoma can baby put up some points. Maybe give them a little scared but I think you know the line sort of around with it should be but thirteen points a lot and You know I think that And looking at the numbers and the best coming in We're taking it though. Seventy five percent of the money on Lsu. which is a bit surprising to me? But I I can see why but you know what if I was a better at You know what I am a better and I'll probably I think I think I would take the points in and take Oklahoma here. I think that They could keep a close. I mean they can put a points and you don't want to call it football you never know what's NFL so it's it's a big difference than you know what. I think that that would be if you know. Don't listen to me but don't yell at me on twitter out there and Hey Oklahoma that I think I'm GonNa Bet Oklahoma. I know I'm betting Oklahoma. Not even a credit. I thought it was like ten thirteen and a half. I'm jumping in. No question about it at burroughs. A good quarterback Jalen hurts is not Swiss cheese. He's pretty good himself. Yeah for sure I mean Look Doc. Looking at a heisman. All boroughs a massive favourite. And he's he's GonNa win. Let me needs. We have at minus thirty thousand so basically awesome so basically. He's he's winning it. But you know what I mean at colleges weird thing it's NFL's a bit closer Irving Lamar Jackson sort of the favorites the the MVP at a pet big price. But you know what there's guys like Aaron Rodgers and these type of guys that could could make a case The Russell Wilson Suffolk got but they call it. It's always different just because of the high scoring games. Emily they kind of look at it. But Yeah you know what I mean. L. To their favorite for reason and You know we're going to be trained against them or best result for the book is exactly Clemson to win at all So Clinton can get through and and and there would be a great result for the book the other free teams the worst result but LLC was probably our worst is Thursday night football in the national football league. The Mark Jackson had a normal day. Five more touchdowns So I know he's a major favourite had been online dot. Ag As far as the MVP. I still wait for for the end of the season. Let's see what Russell Wilson does but What kind of odds can you get done Russell Wilson and what kind of odds right now. Lamar Jackson. Yeah like Lamar Jackson. Right now is a is a massive favorite to win it. All I mean it got five touchdown passes yesterday today and you know. I'm pretty happy because I have my two fantasy teams so and so I'm looking pretty good You know and I had Andrews and bell as well last night so I was kind of all in for last night's hopefully I went back but you know he's I mean he he's he's over achieve and and I mean and he keeps going out at and he keeps doing well and you know like I mean I cannot see anyone else beating them but like I mentioned earlier. You know guy like Aaron Rodgers or even a Russell Wilson can sneak in a couple of weeks left or a few weeks left and and You never know you know and I have a bet from the beginning of the year on the on the packers to win it all so I'm biased on this one but But Yeah Jacksonians gasoline. Definitely the favourite. Talk Adad Burns marketing manager at Ben Online dot.

We'd like people have to you know help I. I'll get involved your politics. There's no question about that. Hey this portion. This show brought good bit online. Let's talk about the national football league this weekend and Seattle off. Well its worst performance of the the season last week against the rams. They're five and a half against the panthers in Carolina. I don't think Russell Wilson will allow his team to play as poorly as last week. Getting five and a half is not enough. Kind of odds. do five and a half the correct line or maybe it's jumped to six. But what line do you have been online dot AG. And Adam. Who Do you like? Yeah foiling around there. I think that the the seahawks are GonNa make a move this week and if they want to be in the playoffs and they want to they run. I think they're going to have to show at this week especially the panthers who you know are in trouble this year and you know. There's a lot of stories about them. You know obviously Rivera being fired lawyered and they WanNa get Cam Newton and then all of this sort of stuff so I think you know what the seahawks are probably right played. It's week About them going a better myself. But I think that's the right like all right the pats at the bengals and the pats are giving nine and a half and I looked this. What's up it's been eight seventeen years? Since the New England patriots have lost Three games against the spread. You're giving nine and and a half usually giving out an after you're GONNA lose the national football league but this season it's sort of turned around where big favorites of one more than half the time but New England minus nine and a half at Cincinnati can new England not cover the spread three times in a row. Well according to our veterans They're about ninety percent on New England here to destroy them. And you know what I can't disagree with that The bengals have even kind of fighting the last few weeks and keeping a close but I think if if the Patriots are real deal and Brady wants to make one last kind of try to to win another super bowl. I think this week they have to. They have to show it so I could see why people are venting it. It's a weird spread Nine and a half you know I could see it being right around that on but you know what I had better betting on the the Patriots all right so too bad teams. You can make money betting too bad teams at bit online died. Ag Dolphins at the giants. But let me say this I will bat teams. The dolphins wins one three and the giants have won two but I got anyway played pretty well last week for an old guy Dolphins at the giants. I don't know who's starting is Jones or we live but I think how leave a little bit toward the giants here. Either case Who Do you like dolphins the Giants Online Dot AG? Yeah I mean. I watched the whole game last week and I mean the giants just you know they. They played well. You had a great first off and then and he just not fell apart but I mean they couldn't connect them the second half and probably should have won that game and again we're always following the the news and the twitter and all that sort of stuff that we are going to be playing. I think it's GonNa be Eli again. But even if it's not I do like the giants in that spot. They're you know. They're trying to rebuild their younger team and You know they'll pressure on them right so they they can do whatever they want and even if they win they lose. There's no pressure off so join Barrett. Actually it's going to be one of my biggest since I figure Dallas. This might lose again to the rams the eagles at Washington. This is a big game for Philadelphia. Geist out of course for the REDSKINS. Philly again in that division. Fight Philly I think four and a half. Last time I checked. What line can we get a better online dot? AG and Eagles against Washington. Who Do you like you know what I think? The Eagles probably will witness game spread wise much sure but speaking of Dallas Game I mean Dallas Open three point excites against the rams and then college slipped. And the rams are minus one There's tons of money coming in on the rams By like like the cowboys here I think that the cowboys they need to win. And you know what that's going to be one of my other best not as big as my other one but Wow I think that that's a good spot where the cowboys have to win. And you know the cowboys are one of those teams where you know. They're a weird team. Where like Jerry Jones always like on the fire decent garrick but no I love those and not and you know I think this week will really show what what they're made of? And I. I like the cowboys pretty much spot. Don't you think though that Jerry Jones putting a lot of pressure on the club desolated affiliated. But they know when you're a billionaire like that he's your boss you know like I worked for different companies and I have screener bosses too when they tell you what to do. You GotTa do it and It's it's sort of one of those situations where I I think that you know garrison in the spot where he knows. He's got to win this week or else he does. And I think that's this is that we. It's decided well in fantasy. I'm playing the other way. So we'll see how it works. Adam Byrnes online dot. Ag Tell us again.

There's eight five explained to me how the steelers can be eight and five. You know what I'm surprised by the steelers other resilience is and you know we actually put up all on Coach Tomlin is one of the favorites because of how he's managed through all the injuries and and that sort of thing and no receivers no running back. I think he's probably you know how good chance to be coach of the year especially to make the playoffs and they're an interesting team. I don't think they'll win at all but I mean if they can make the playoffs. That's a very big achievement. For Them I agree with you. One hundred percent Adam Byrnes.

I'm Mike Clifford. The Senate's top. Two leaders Tuesday engage in a battle over the the structure of the trump impeachment trial from from the Washington. Post they report. It shines a spotlight. New Level of tension between the two sides before negotiations associations over the Senate proceedings even begin. It started Tuesday as Senate majority leader. Mitch McConnell rejected a call from minority leader Chuck Schumer to subpoena new witnesses for the proceedings for his part. Schumer wants to see subpoenas for acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney senior adviser Rubber Blair former former National Security Adviser John Bolton as well as Michael Duffy a top official with the office of Management and Budget for people in the State of Kentucky have died from the flu. Do Health officials say this year they expect an increase of flu cases all across the Commonwealth the Kentucky Department for Public Health also reports more than sixteen hundred laboratory confirmed flu cases since early. August acting state epidemiologist Dr. Doug thorough man says he expects this flu season to stretch out lasting longer. And then last year's we're definitely seeing an earlier onset with higher numbers this year than we saw in previous years. And we've now had two more deaths so we've got six deaths. Today's the data in our first pediatric death was reported Friday. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last year the nation experienced the longest flu season on record in Kentucky Talkie there were one hundred ninety six flu related deaths including two children so far Kentucky's flu activity is considered moderate according to the CDC's weekly influenza wins US surveillance report. I'm not a Ramlan. Experts say the most effective suggest to prevent the flu or to wash your hands frequently. Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze. Dan Stay home when you are sick. Children up to the age of six and Texas across the nation continued to lose their health coverage according to a new report from Georgetown Town University and Dunkelberg with the Center for public policy. Priorities says the report should be a wakeup call for lawmakers because too many children are missing out on care at a critical time and their development. Kids are supposed to have fifteen doctor visits between birth and age six and so the kids who don't have insurance during that age we're really missing an opportunity to detect problems early and prevent them from becoming lifetime issues after a decade of progress improving access to Care Dunkelberg. Uncle Burke says Texas is headed in the wrong direction for two years in a row. Both percentage and number of children without health coverage have gone up between two thousand sixteen in two thousand as an eighteen more than twenty three thousand kids up to age six lost coverage a thirteen percent increase last year. Over eight hundred. Seventy Thousand Texans under eighteen were uninsured eye. Eric Gladys this is PMS. Nearly five hundred. Eighty thousand folks folks in Wisconsin or unpaid family caregivers. That's according to the AARP of Wisconsin. The group is renewing its call for state lawmakers to easy financial burden that they face legislation has been introduced to provide a tax credit of five hundred dollars for certain expenses incurred by family caregivers. Despite bipartisan partisan support previous efforts have failed in the legislature largely due to cost concerns but Helen Marks Dick's of AARP. Wisconsin says. It shouldn't be looked. Yeah there's only a budget issue. It's a gesture to towards acknowledging. How much work family caregivers are actually doing to keep their family members? I in the community to ease the concerns of opponents worried about the cost of a tax credit. Dick says the plan has been modified in multiple ways. The amount is five hundred dollars dollars lower than the initial proposal. And it's been crafted as a pilot project for a single tax season to see how many people would actually use it over the summer. Wisconsin adopted adopt a two year budget. But next month revenue forecast could pave the way for a supplemental spending bill. Mike Mohan Humpback news service a recent recent. ASU survey of one thousand Wisconsin voters found ninety percent approve of the tax credit idea. A judge in Raleigh has revoked permits. Burma's would have allowed coal ash to be dumped at mine sites at Chatham and Lee counties say the permits were improperly issued Tarez Vic with the Blue Ridge. Environmental Defense Ed's League calls the court ruling a win for public health. I think it's very significant. Not only for folks and Chatham in Lee County but for the rest of interstate fixes that local residents had expressed concerns that coal ash pollutants that include arsenic lead and radium would contaminate local groundwater her finally the road less rule protect civil sixty million acres of national forest road construction and logging but address US tells us the trump administration is looking in for a big exemption. The administration has asked the Forest Service to create an exemption that would allow logging in protected. Parts of the Tonga's national forests in Alaska one of the the largest intact temperate rainforest left in the world in Pennsylvania. Jim Furnish former deputy chief of the US force service notes. The road less rule also protect twenty ninety five thousand acres of the allegheny national forests from logging. I think if people look at quote value the allegany hasn't Pennsylvania's being a place. That's been set aside for future generations rations for posterity. It's a great lesson.

Played up there in the Let's see bill is a big deal but We're going to focus on the more American North American sports. Like you know the hockey. The the maple leafs who haven't won a Stanley Cup since nineteen sixty seven there that team because the cubs are gone. Nobody cares about the Indians. I don't think football you could really stacking up as far as teams that have never wanted to have one for a long time. Because if teams like the Minnesota Vikings that have never won the super bowl. You have the buffalo bills that have never won the super bowl. You have a team like the original. Six Toronto Maple leafs that haven't won since nineteen sixty seven or they got to the play offs. It's twenty eighteen and they have a prodigy player like Austin Matthews which is funny because you know when the projection that made with maple leafs land connor mcdavid a few years ago. Maple leafs fans like no. Don't ruin this hockey player. A you know we we. You know we're sorry that we're not a very good team but let him play somewhere else and the attitudes a little bit different with Austin Matthews Line that he plays on his pretty good. They need a little more depth there Toronto but they were eliminated in seven games by the Boston Bruins in twenty eighteen. I have won a playoff series since two thousand six the Blue Jays have the memorable championships or the city Toronto.

I can't teach you one way. I'll teach but I'm going to get the job that game there. I gave him hockey. And you're really excited with the home. Old Team wins. I wish you know I've said it before and I just saw the memory come up on my facebook feed about Vancouver Besting Chicago Coming Offi Stanley Cup championship for the Blackhawks when they knocked off the They knocked off Chicago at home. Game seven The year after the Blackhawks beat them in the playoffs and went on to beat the Philadelphia Flyers for the championship. And I'm not talking about Fan Cooper now I get that were focused on Toronto but We don't have these deep stories of Toronto raised recent history. They lose six a year ago at this time around They lose in seven to the Boston bruins but things are things are looking up. You know Mike Babcock. That's a championship caliber. Coach Lou Lamoriello the g You know the championship caliber. GM At least they hold. I think that maple leafs fans have to be happy with the current leadership in that. It's not Brennan Janney in that you have new leadership there You are on the up and up. You still sell tickets you know it's it's Kinda crazy because the maple leafs like like the cubs and like the browns suck for decades at sold at no problem selling tickets. And that's why I think that we. I think we ignore when the Los Angeles Clippers went on for you know decades long losing streaks and things like that no. I don't think that we care with Tampa Bay finishes winless out they. I don't think in this day and age. We actually care our national level of the browns finished winless given the We've put so much credence in tanking and taking gets you could get your guy like Austin Matthews or Connor David or Jack Eichel Nathan beginning. You know. It's it's worth having bad season. Have fifteen great seasons since or maybe maybe seven or eight. Nothing is guaranteed but You know there are some definite. Can't miss prospects in hockey. And we've seen quite a few of the come through the League over the last couple of seasons Toronto again. Fortunate enough to have this kid from Arizona of all places I think they use born in San Francisco. Spent a good deal of this childhood Down in my neck of the woods here in Arizona and actually during the time that I lived in Arizona because the kids not all old. They're used to enjoy going downtown. To America request arena and watching the watching the coyotes playing their Green Chena jerseys before they went to the near the red the black like like the other teams in Phoenix other than the sun's Jim Adamson sons looking like the diamondbacks. It looked like the A lot like the Bulls you know. They went to the to the red black lacking yet. This uniform look like Pittsburgh ass. Toronto Scott Toronto at least with the Blue Jays the maple leafs the blue and white. You'll rafters a little bit funky. There's no reason the rafters can't adopt that color scheme. There's nothing about Jurassic Park. That says you can't go with royal blue and white as a casual hockey fan. You know I grew up a tie domi fight and now again. It's a different type of hockey player. He fights every now and again but he's he's not not known for like the. The volleyball old man was as always exciting to watch in a in. Toronto is just one of those teams. I don't really care what the records you know if if explain Toronto I'm GonNa Watch it you know if I do catch a Toronto National Trauma. Flayed I WANNA say. They played need Michigan or they want to play the Detroit Red Wings at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor when you were that. That stadium seats honored by not not not not a soul sees that I you know I know people that have seen the blackhawks play at soldier field Never really discussed the baseball all stadiums. I imagine that you know federally for Baseball. Game I heard is not the greatest seat in the house. Get Imagine how it is for hockey game. You Know Roger Center. It's got that inside site outside. Thanks so the Blue Jays can't really do it. I think the NFL team police in that Roger Center as well boy that that place was such a huge. I think it's kind of McDonald's what's in it and I'm sure there's a stadium or to that that the has McDonald's in the United States maybe in College Stadium Stadium as Chick-fil-a it's why I was blown away by the Acted Atlanta had another Mercedes Benz Stadium when they when the feature attraction in their stadium happens on Sunday. The darn place isn't even open way way too Tan gentle. They're talking about the Toronto. Maple leafs here on our best of Toronto. Which Kinda give you a a general? Feel for what you're watching with the maple leafs and I said you know they don't WanNa Stanley Cups in sixty seven. You know they had your vantage bend one going going through it and I'm going back to sixty seven with them winning the cop you know. There's a lot of the accused did not qualifies for the Toronto Maple Leaves and maybe they were a team. That was just shattered by the. You know the lockout season that didn't happen in four zero five here in Arizona. We lost the All Star game. Never get back game back home. It's rooted hockey team here. But I'll tell you it's teams like the Toronto Maple leafs like Calvin in Calgary flames the Edmonton oilers. Canadians take like monthlong vacations. So they can follow hockey team through California and Arizona. That's not that's that's not a bad escape from Alberta and Ontario and British Columbia in those January February months. Where why not right? You know it's not as tropical down in the southern United States when it's one hundred fifty below up in Toronto but it is a nice little holiday for Canadians to take and you're like watching hockey and I think that they they get back acclimated to the cool weather of the arena. You know if you if you if you baggage again hockey because yet you can't get into it watching it on TV first of all watch the playoffs second or go to a game you gotTa Minor League it. You'll go to high school. Look if you have to heal the sports hating person will go hockey game. It's like what a good time that they had there. Then we'll be able to tell you who won or any player on either either team or perhaps either the participants in the game though if you're going to a Toronto Maple leaves game. It's kind of hard to deny the fact that you're watching. The Toronto Maple leafs with with a bunch of people that are dressed like Toronto. Maple leafs. But they're on the island for them to win a playoff series. Now it depends on what the league does around them and I dead. A lot of that is predicated on how the twentieth eighteen Stanley Cup playoffs Come to finish Toronto one and done two years in a row. Don't look look for that third year to row and I think that they are training in the right direction rather than falling out of the playoffs. Altogether Cujo played up there for a long time. That's that's another big name title me a they haven't been good. I mean you think about it you know you have Ryan Sambergen Andre Dawson there. There's only going to be a handful of names. But they awfully for a frontal houses are maybe maybe maybe Wrigley didn't sell out in the eighty s when all the games were while people were at work and all you did was come to the team to come to the Ballpark booder lousy team. I don't sense that a lot of that happens up in Toronto you know. They've been holding their breath. They've been waiting there blue in the face his blue in the face as they are on the sweaters that they wear to their games. But that's that's the maple leafs. They had the lead the show. Now they're volley the subject that You know an American in Phoenix. Arizona's least I about but but it is the most important thing in that city. If I'm wrong you cannot you can tweet me at Jeff.

Joe Carter Walk off home run only the second time in the most recent sometimes the data anyway that the world series into the whole team walk off home run about that. I mean. Obviously you have to be the home team. You you know to get the walk off victory but the the Homerun Bill Mazeroski in one thousand nine hundred sixty Joe Carter in one thousand nine hundred ninety three a repeat in Major League Baseball and when you think about it. How many teams are the Yankees have repeats in your lifetime? Charles NJ transit interesting parallel deal with yours truly be your host here Jeff. RICHMAN's born in nineteen seventy eight so The franchise itself is a a year older than I am. However you know? And that's you know for franchise to be older than anyone really this day and age especially baseball. You know you think about my Cleveland Indians You know they came to be one thousand nine hundred one. Most recent team came in nine hundred ninety eight so You know if you're under forty one at this point in time Seattle Toronto were around before you're around and you know see rockies in the Marlins Orlands came around in ninety three in the ninety eight you got the diamondbacks and the Tampa Bay rays but the Blue Jays were for a a long time one of the newer teams in the League. You know I came to you. Really Follow Sports in Nineteen eighty-five so when I'm looking at some of these bluejays Jays legends as far as war is concerned. Anyway when I see the George Bells and the Jesse Barfield a little more twenty Fernandez Dave steep guys where the old school happens at your. Who's WHO's this redhead dude? That's right extra Shannon Stewart. That's giving Ernie wit the catcher. Fred mcgriff crime dog mcgriff. Yeah there's a lot of mercenaries in this group Roger Clemens. You're not going to remember him as a Toronto Blue Jay in most circles Fred mcgriff outrace hat in his profile picture on baseball reference Edwin encarnacion current Cleveland Indian and was big free agent signing for them a couple years ago Lloyd Moesby Devan White Pat had been you know. Paul Molitor was huge for this team team but didn't play for them very long. So you're probably not going to see him. Look much like Carter. Joe Roberto Alamar a little more recent player Josh Donaldson of course royality put. It's good time up there vernon wells and more recently but TISTA and Cardenas Johan. I'll go a little further back. You have Carlos Delgado who was Featured fairly recently with the The Puerto Rico series. I thought that there were a lot more Puerto Rican players in major league baseball when you think about the series played in two thousand eighteen. You know the two-game upset-plagued between the Indians in the twins you didn't really realize just how many but still how you come from a Ah very baseball rich Territory of the United States in Puerto Rico Carlos Delgado he really sticks out is one of the ambassadors for the the island. And let's name that you're going to remember the name that draw bluejays are going to remember for a long time but You know losing the AFC ass. They didn't eighty five and I don't think they found it to be very much fun. They waited until twenty fifteen. They go back and they they play the same team that the played thirty years prior in eighty five. And you know interesting that the royals ended up going through the Toronto Blue Jays. Both with their running eighty five and the running twenty fifteen seen Cleveland Indians very nearly swept them years ago. Toronto has got a lot of pride. You know they've they play with a certain. A certain chip thundershower. I realized that most of the players Canadian all my back almost all of them by. It's a team that has really been laughing. Stock Doc you know. When they're last place team people tend to take notice because it usually home around five hundred and their their fans travel very? Well they since the The the expos departed Montreal to come to the United States. Come to the most Americans in the United States far as I'm concerned Washington. DC YOU SO TORONTO. Is the team western Canadians root for the Blue Jays while they come come to play the Seattle Mariners when they go to Cleveland. I mean nine Jacobs Field Progressive Field Stadium. Wherever have you and I can remember this going back into the eighties when the Blue Jays were very very good all the time and the Cleveland Indians? Were very very the bad. All of the time that you'd have quite a few of the Those from north of the border coming down to watch the Blue Jays it gets it gets pretty intense watching some of these visit crowds. You'll come in. You know I got to see you know. I got to catch a couple of games in series against Toronto and in like two thousand eight in the end the it's dominated the entire weekend but the Toronto the Toronto they were happy they didn't my drink at our week. Beer in Cleveland and You know it's it's a good time as long as you don't take things too personally in the world of sports You know one of the things I do. Take personally as the stolen valor. You have go back go back quite a few years. It was It was prior to Buck Martinez. Oh Tim Johnson right after Vietnam War record. That just didn't exist. You know I think he was a poet personnel other than grunt and he just he claimed combat. And if you're not familiar with the the whole military setup if you're listening on the American Forces Network We appreciate you tuning into listened to be talking about Canada of all places. But there's definitely something bothersome about about that. They had a hard time figuring out the formula so they brought Seato gas. Did back after you know what about ten years away from the game you've seen. Do you see the Washington redskins do this with Joe Gibbs and you know you saw with even saw it with the Blue Jays goes guest in in his second go round with the Blue Jays takes over for gibbons then John Farrell takes over for a couple of seasons seasons. He ends up being traded to the Boston. Red Sox and John Gibbons is replaced him so Gibbons Frog given his dad add halladay Vernon Wells. Alex Rios Halliday again is his best player and now the second time around Colby Rasmus. Joey Batista the Josh Donaldson. Marcus Stroman A and and the current semblances the Blue Jays. Oh yeah that's not an easy out on any given night when you you think about the Marcus stroman any every every team that he's pitched for its Toronto. And it's and it's the national team knock him and Kevin Par par and Kevin Cure two of my favorite players in the game. Just because of the way that they played their defensive Centerfield. I think that you see good defensive center field across the board but I think it's really special when you talk about a player like floor stole stole well home not too long ago so you know. Toronto had window. Maybe it closed when you talk talk about the signing a minor league contract if you supposed to be a big free agent a year ago and he didn't make that money that's a sad state of affairs but we definitely do try to recognize our friends from north of the border which you know. I remember Chris Berman coming on before the ninety three world world series. And he said you know if you have affiliation with Philly you'll go and root for the phillies but but don't get caught up in the America. V Canada crap. I I think I allow myself to get caught up with it with hockey but I don't really look at the Blue Jays. Ill playing against any of the other twenty nine teams in Major League Baseball and say I have to root for. I have to root against Toronto. Because I'm an American in rooting for the American team. That probably has potentially more Canadian players fewer American players than the Blue Jays. Do when they come to visit you gotta rethink things. Because that's just not a reasonable reasonable take you know. I think that there are some bad. There's bad fans you know. If you're aware of Roger. Clemens Ninety Eight Bluejays Jays Jersey twenty years later. Yeah you need up we gotta we gotTa do something for you as far as direction right now. It's really tough because of the the the Yankees and the Red Sox are stacked up in the American League East and you know it's not so much just trying to have a better record but it's trying to beat them Yup thirty eight games against those monsters.

Don Lowery led to knocked away by right the rows of keeps allowed by. I turn now back to sports overnight America with Jeff did we mentioned. We're talk about some young teams expanded again. North American Leagues in the city of Toronto. Welcome back we are talking. Toronto sports and ED One thing I I need to mention and it's just sour grapes because of Mike we want routes but many think about it. The eighty five Kansas city royals royal's the one thousand nine hundred eighty nine Oakland athletics. The nineteen ninety one Minnesota twins the two thousand fifteen Kansas city royals. And then what are these. Things is not like the other the two thousand sixteen Cleveland Indians. Would you all but the Indians have in common as it pertains to the Toronto Blue Jays and and I'll tell you they all won world championships going through Toronto to get to the World Series in the league championship series cling. Couldn't handle the cops after taking down the Blue Jays and five two years ago and I'm just a little bit upset about it. Still all right. Let's move on and talk about the Toronto Raptors. Let's talk about start talking about the things that bother me in the past and think about what might bother me down the road the Toronto Raptors the one seed in the Eastern Conference Lavigne's from the two thousand seventeen eighteen season a little bit of a dark horse. You expected expected Lebron to do his thing. You expect to Boston to be much. Improved moved with Kyrie Irving but you know if you watch Toronto Raptors basketball over the last couple of years. They've been in the playoffs every sees going back to thirteen in fourteen cavaliers. A lottery team after thirteen. Fourteen bounced the first round in thirteen bounced again in the first round in fourteen eighteen. They got to the conference finals in fifteen and they were defeated by the cavaliers as they got to the conference I semifinals in two thousand sixteen in yeah they were bound by the cavaliers their to believe they were actually swept during the sixteen seventeen campaign. I might be off on that. I think that Boston got one from the cavaliers. Look really similar. You know if I mentioned the twenty sixteen Indians the Indians only lost one game aimed Toronto on the way to the way the world series and the The best team just a year ago the cavaliers knocked off the The rafters in quick fashion. And you know and then they'd be Boston five so Really Toronto and six I I think that is the. That's the best effort that we've seen against the cavaliers. I know the Bulls took six the first year. That Lebron was there you know when they were playing a series without Kevin Law without You know the very broken kyrie Irving at best. This isn't about Cleveland. Those about the trial raptors to the best three players that have ever played for that. Are there right now in that. Starting Back Court for Dwayne Casey. It's Chris. Bosh by the way is the best player at least by wind shares which is what basketball reference. I like these reference sites that they a help you out twenty Especially when you're just looking for raw numbers now you know very few foods. Like bio foods are the only real distractions from the raw broad data. So you WanNa talk about analytics and I'm not saying that we're looking at spreadsheets and graphs and charts and Statistics and things like that. I'm not saying that looking at basketball reference pages getting analytical there are definitely analytical aspects that I don't like getting into I don't WanNa get into. WHO RADIUS IS CO signs and slopes it averages just as they pertain to statistical numbers? But I know that they help front office out out. I just don't want to be that I'm going to dedicate You'll my mindset to something more than try to figure out efficiency ratings and wind chairs and all that I leave that to the nothing. I don't put them down. It's just not my particular game Toronto If you do pay attention to such things though that the that's You know there are a smart team. They are able to bring bring in that big free agent are they getting tonio. Davis got himself in trouble when he was playing for the raptors talking about his upcoming free agency and how how his kids going Canadian schools and the lack of desire and and and I don't really know enough to speak about the education system in Toronto I do know that in Phoenix Arizona in the month of April two thousand eighteen that the teachers you know six weeks before graduation walked out on their students because the teachers aren't treated very well read for Hashtag. Red Fred if you care to look that up on twitter and again if you care to get at me on twitter at Jeff rich talks and you don't talk about twinkies drank. ACS made are to be the coach of the year over the last three seasons for Toronto fifty-six Six hundred twenty six back in the fifteen sixteen campaign sixteen seventeen. There were fifty one thirty one and a franchise best. I don't even need need to look at the rest of the The rest of the years fifty nine hundred twenty three the best Arab Toronto Raptors basketball is right now okay is right now other other than that. You have five playoff appearances yet there. Oh seven Oh wait. The last in the first round you had their six or seven. They lost in the first round. All right and then you have to go back to Very early time in their franchise Vince. Carter Carter was somewhat anointed as a a as a player that belong in a conversation with Michael Jordan you know what they have in common. The Bald went to North Carolina. That that's that's it. That's the end of conversation in the comparison. Vince Carter and Michael Jordan Carter. What you A? I think that I think the Jordan did agree graduated Swedish some point from North Carolina. Perhaps a little in honorary fashion. Our Events Carter. Actually you know what school over the summer and wanted to walk awkward. The graduating class of the day that his team had a game seven in Philadelphia and he missed the big shot. He missed the big shot it. He didn't miss the big shot because does he went down to Chapel Hill and spent ten minutes at his. Graduation was very much a cameo for Vince Carter but it was something you know. It was something that I'm going to do you because I can. And I don't really care what you think of it. Similar players throughout their history Damon Stoudamire Outta my man. They were really really ugly. In the beginning they had like flintstones cartoon dinosaurs on Purple Jerseys with black pinstripes in the end the early phases. It looked really silly almost as silly as the cavaliers do in those black goodyear judges boy that that's just silly. Yeah Yeah such such beautiful ward marks and I. It doesn't make for great radio too you know media media and talking about uniforms and things like adapted i. I just can't get over the whole the whole thing in the nineties where renamed expansion teams off of movies. You you know the the mighty Ducks Savannah and you. Do you know anything that the angels played the angels in the outfield thing quite a bit but you know they were the angels. I it was a very family friendly filmed. It wasn't very good. You know when it comes to baseball movies I think Major League sets the the High Watermark speed a witch Neil Oh flint who stars as the lead actor on the middle. You might know him as the janitor from scrubs or the COP on the transit from the fugitive if you took braque's cubs over the weekend I was sitting a few rows behind him and and we didn't have very good seats but you know who else didn't have very good seats. The janitor from scrubs drops. You always wanted to construction workers in major league and I you know I give you clips but I don't think that there's anything that's suitable radio play. He's he's got like four lines and you know the contain the F. Word or some some combination of four letter words that just don't make for are acceptable radio. How late at night that you listrik and you know and we can ramble on about the Toronto Raptors Alan Williams once upon a time? Donyell Marshall for Longtime Chris Bosh Lizzy Calderoni peaked a little bit in the seventy eight campaign as their starting point guard. Amir ear Johnson was a good rim-protector for a number of years for them Yoenis Balance Unis. I'm I'm very curious how he's going to you stack up against Tristan Thompson when it's all said and done we're not that far it really into year seven Tristan thompsons. Looking more Washington. Balance Eunice Patricia Thompson has array interest. In Hobson had Lebron's endorsement to make eighty two million dollars. I'd like to see lowery and derozen. Step up there but you get the feeling that they're gonNA they're gonNA realize that there's a ceiling in Toronto is great coaches twinkie. See is that that it's Toronto. Rondo that it's not you know it's not the Front Office of the raptors that it's not. It's not the facilities dry. It's just what's that it's Toronto. I know that you got Lebron declined. Honestly tell me a great free agent. That's gone to the Chicago Bulls the Detroit Pistons or the seventy sixers radio next. I mean the Knicks have got knicks. Pay Guys The sun's pig is Lakers pig is is but you know it's a little easier to get somebody to spend their winter Their winter career in it warm weather city. And then you know even if you take the weather factor out it's still Toronto you have issues like I really think it was Antonio Davis and draw drew big controversy. Canadians are very proud of everything that they do aides in real life. They're very polite but they're very proud. And you'll rapper spats yield the we the north I give you an example from the twenty eighteen winter games over in South Korea. You know the the the women's team team winning the the the hockey gold over Canada and Canada's dominated the US but Canadians were salty about that Canadians. I geared year very salty about losing. And they're the favorites in the east and they're not being respected. No I'm going to tell you about Cleveland. A lot of the talking heads. We're going to talk about Philadelphia Iras every now and again you need to be reminded about the Toronto Raptors almost sixty win team one of the best backcourts in the NBA. But is it enough to stop Lebron James You you need that wing player. Do you need that great defensive player. I don't know where Lebron finds it. Outside of state of the Union durant can check him. I they can check him. Stevenson's not in Lebron's league. I don't know anybody else on the raptors that can necessarily play with a guy like Lebron James but they are very legitimate basketball team. I think that they're better than Toronto. I think they would beat Philadelphia given the chance in these upcoming playoffs but Antonio Sports City I mean you you you probably get into the NFL if you live up there so it sounds like a great place to hang out great place to chill. Where Superman's metropolis is based on video? It's one of the media centers of the you know the entire world never been to Toronto. I'd like I'd like to check it out. There's it seems like you gotta go to the Air Canada Centre. You GotTa go to Blue Jays game and you could actually probably pull off both it a weekend.

The mind unleash reports at during a recent meeting Kaplan told members of the city council that she she is already been in contact with cruise ship companies about the possibility of using their vessels for emergency housing for the homeless Kaplan suggested that the ship it could work similarly to the Queen Mary in Long Beach a large old ship that has now docked in the harbor acting as a hotel for tourists and other visitors to the area many members of the Council or on board with the proposal but it would need to be approved by the Port of Oakland and they seem reluctant to allow such a cruise ship to dock in the report for an extended period of time my example a spokesman for the port told the chronicle that Oakland port was designed for cargo ships not cruise ships.

He wasn't a prostitute. But we'll we'll get into the story here. That is coming up plus Stephen you want to discuss. Ai Tonight artificial intelligence. I presume resume artificial intelligence. I WanNa tell the listeners. Three sentences about what is artificial intelligence very interesting all right so we're going to get into that. Of course you can bring up anything thing that happens to be on your mind here tonight. Plus let's see there's you know there's this dictionary the Merriam Webster Dictionary. It's sort of like the big dictionary out. There is that they'll one that is a big. I mean it certainly the one that a lot of people turn to one of the first English dictionary ever published in America's all right well. They named their word of the year. Is They You know I wanNA talk about not a fan. This makes me feel very strange. This is not right. It's very weird and we're GONNA get into that coming up here but let's start with the police chief. Let's get the the hard news from Astros seven in Seattle. We've got Seattle. Police Captain Arrested in undercover vice operation. Watch chat for those vices so this was turns out cops have vices to know not buses vices crimes title of a great book. It really. Yeah it it does sound great. Yeah who wrote that book. Do you know no okay. Okay so this is the crime. I don't think so. No certainly not but let's get into it so The victim no crime. The this was a couple of weeks ago so this was published on November. Twenty four th but I think actually happened about a month ago happened mid November but it took a while l. for the information to trickle out like they didn't report his name and I wanted to know you know I want to see the guy's picture like they do with everybody else they grab. I have a picture of the Mug shot. No they've got his captain photo. You know he's looking all smiley in uniform and tie no so thirty. One year veteran and police department captain so that means he's been on the force for thirty one years now that he's thirty one years old. He's fifty three. Captain was arrested by his fellow officers during a vice sting late Wednesday in an investigation of Sexual Exploitation Loyd Haitian that is that what they call it. They're they're being exploited in ridiculous. I think they're exploiting him. That's the problem. Yeah that's what they're looking out now for our money these these broads charge too much. You're being exploited. According to several sources fifty three year old veteran Seattle police captain Randall. woolery offered forty dollars others to an undercover officer who was posing as a prostitute and he was arrested on the spas. Say what the forty dollars was four. Can you guess I mean. It doesn't seem like enough for anything I would think a standard rate is okay that that could be. Aj or VJ. Maybe yeah or something even like spanking or something kinky. That's just not even a big deal pictures or something. Yeah something like that. Well well I wish they got into the details of this and maybe we'll find out later through like court documents. What actually transpired? But if if the mainstream media bothers to go and actually dig that information they haven't been that's what's been so hard to get even the guy's name. This is the only publication that said his name from which I found well. The police protect their own to some extent shots usually that they don't release information about officers who've been charged until they absolutely have to well and he's a captain so he was his cabinet happened. Okay so that's like second to chief basically think Oh yeah. Yeah he's very high up the rank right woolery. He was one of five men arrested in the Aurora sting. That's a street in Boston. And according to jail records he was. You said Boston Seattle. Excuse me this is. Seattle happened in Seattle. Sorry just slipping. And according to jail records he was booked and released in less than thirty minutes. What about the other four? Probably not I guess that the other four probably stayed the night woolery works. We can't put. We can't keep police. Captain opt in holding down there with the people that he's arrested perhaps right so you can't put them in with the rest of the people and the rest of the jails full so oh also he might get fired if we mistreat him or don't let him go. Must be bad for morale. You see the Boston sell. Yeah maybe the maybe the underlings will get excited because there's an opening. Hey here's an opportunity job to make a statement about prostitution Shen or or a sex work from the police here. I hope so because I always love to hear these ridiculous statements about why this should be illegal and why it's so bad. Well let's frame. I'm at a little bit about this guy. Wool rain the one who was arrested. The captain works in Seattle Police Departments Professional Standards Bureau where he reviews Officers use of force so he's reviewing other officers all the time. We'll worry was also elected as a fire. Commissioner in Snohomish Amish County Fire district seven which manages eight fire departments saw pretty cool good for him. He was elected people like him a spokesperson then with the district directed questions to Seattle police quote. Seattle police arrested a fifty-three-year-old SPD employees last night in an undercover vice operation in north Seattle said a statement issued by Sergeant Sean whitcomb quote. The employee was booked into King County Jail L. With the request for misdemeanor charges and the information was forwarded to the office of Police Accountability. The employees a thirty one year veteran and assigned to the Professional Standards Bureau has been placed on administrative leave which means he gets paid. Yeah he gets paid. Doesn't hide vacation. He's all allows for sources within the department told Kiro seven Warri was highly regarded as a role model of professionalism and was honored recently gently with an award for being an inspirational leader. Well you know this is laid probably was yeah. I mean this is probably the least offensive thing that the cop could get caught for doing right. I mean if you think about the corruption out there amongst police departments. You've got cops murdering people you've got cops raping people using their position of so-called authority shooting themselves on women because we heard about this where they force themselves on women like. Oh well you better do what I say or else. I'm going to take you to jail. In this case. He just offered her forty bucks so like he was actually pretty decent. Yeah in this. All Things considered it turns out it was a cop that he was propositioning which is also interesting resting because it just goes to show how big the Seattle Police Department is. This guy's a captain and he doesn't even know he's talking to one of his own agents. Yeah that's probably too big also so you might have been up. You know like in dry like like I didn't. I didn't check to Austin Texas where you're from Stephen. And last time I looked like nineteen nineteen hundred. Cops wow so I suspect Seattle's probably on par with that one person can only know twenty to one hundred anyway occurs to me. Though that the Portsmouth police chief was formerly chief in Seattle. So yeah so bill guy who's in charge of the police in my town both from this this jurisdiction three hundred people to to question you know. This guy is a community leader. Maybe they will question the law. The story is because they said he's a good guy and if he is a good guy then maybe this isn't so bad. Let's continue here if you want to.

Hundred Officers Sir is not sure if those are all uniformed officers or if that includes office staff but it's it's a big department Apparently one of those officers is an undercover prostitute. Stinging style officer who managed to sting the captain. Yeah and they arrested him chart charging him with a misdemeanor and Dan immediately let him out within moments of being booked in the King County jail. I think it was. He was there a whole half hour. Yeah that's just enough time to take his fingerprints and and Cut Him loose basically. Yeah so they. I looked up. What could forty dollars get from a prostitute in Seattle or just generally it said it depends on your area so I don't know that they have the numbers for Seattle exactly but they said a full hour is usually about one hundred? So is that from our what. Yeah Okay but there's also the question is that look. I'm not an expert on prostitution. But there's the street walker kind of prostitutes was a streetwalker because people who were picked up from from the same street right major streets alive easier to bus streetwalkers and St Johns. If you will than it is to bus what they call in call an out call these. These are the girls or guys or whoever the prostitutes that will visit Either the person in their home or have the person come visit them at like an office location or something like that. Those those are a lot harder. The police don't even care about that kind because you don't see it Outta sight Outta mind so it's like you know I don't care about that it's like we got hookers on the street. We don't well. He only paid for twenty four minutes after you take the average price and you calculate per hour. So that's how long the captain is expecting acting the lab. The other thing twenty four minutes you have to ask yourself does. Is this the first time that captain. What was his name? woolery rule ring. The chances are very low. This is the first time. Yeah you know. He's a veteran on the fifty years. Thirty years or whatever thirty one years he was probably doing this thing. Of course well he probably. He was on the knees around these places for decades hanging out with these prostitutes. How would he not know? And if he's on you know he may not know. What one Eh What area of his department is doing. He may be like the daytime captain. And there may be a nighttime captain. Who's on at night? And he was looking for the girl at night. Maybe he's in a different part of the city a large place like he would probably think I'm GONNA go 'cause they're always in the same area in every city. There's like the area where what I'm saying is maybe his role in part part of town was a different part of town so he goes to a place where he doesn't even Iraq this. There's probably thousands of COPS OPS. I'm betting you know if he's been with the Police Department for over thirty years that he was expecting if something went wrong he would be fine. He's he's like fine he's correct so I think that's probably the issue is he was like oh he probably didn't expect to make headlines he would just get arrested and then I wonder if they're gonNA cut him off the squad I wonder if he's GonNa lose his job over this because normally I mean normally I would think he's not going to because he's as a cop and they they give their guys. You know latitude. I mean we've seen them get away with murder and rape and things like that and continue on with relatively by the did make a major headline nine embarrassing and it seems like whenever you see a cop get fired it almost always has to do with some sort of sexual issue but it usually social justice thing I they were talking about this vice group or this vice sting. was about Preventing Exploitation tation. That's so lame presumably. They believe that there are people in Seattle who are being exploited like. I could imagine that that could be true but very true there could be. What are they called the guy slaves on yet but the ones who force them into slavery the pimps? I I don't know if you could say. All pimps are forcing women and now to slave not all of them but surely there are some who are. I mean that happens definitely police at least would know about that too but they would be the most aware. I would hope that they would be the ones who are exploiting are the pimps so I would say they shouldn't be doing undercover pretending to be prostitutes. They should be undercover pretending to be John's so they should be like well. They do that too. Yeah but that's that's what they should only be doing because then you invite the girl or the prostitute of whatever gender and you're like hey are you okay are you safe for or are you endanger. That would be a real service to the community service. Yeah well of course they're thinking is that the the demand is what's driving driving it and they're saying if we can stop the demand for processing the loan and then the prostitutes are actually like sex slaves and that if they stopped I think this is what they say and this is what they're thinking. What that if you stop the demand it will stop the supply? Yeah but they. They always worked. They've we've totally been able to stop the demand for drugs and prostitution. Oh wait no. They haven't I think they're not. I think they're mainly concerned about human trafficking. Fry they claim. Hey Yeah but yet. They don't do the things that would prove that that we're actually true. It's just because they're not good at doing their job their their monopoly -opoly like they're not ready to compete for money like they've got a big boondoggle thing like the best and brightest. Don't go there. They go into different fields. Old probably just doesn't seem as fun dressing up as a prostitute so like someone's like I'll probably turn them all on dealing with these prostitutes probably who the the cops were soliciting a prostitute. Cops that it just everyone involved. They do seem to have a weird relationship that the prostitutes in the cops that they're in the same class us there in the same class. What do you mean by that? Blue collar workers low remember. There was also the story out of Florida earlier this year with the Patriots owner. I believe it was who got busted in a What you would call a Jack Shack down there massage parlor where he it was getting a bit of a happy ending? At massage they busted him with undercover cameras. They had legally set up in this business. So the business didn't know there were cameras. The COPS had concealed in the business. Wow that's so wrong and they used subterfuge in order to. I think they called in a bomb threat or something to the building and then when the bomb squad went in they placed undercover cameras in this This massage parlor started radio. What what do you think they're real subconscious motivation for? This was hours and hours. Eddie lunch exactly what it is. Wow Yeah and that's why they like focus on arresting being You know strippers and things like that. I mean there's cops that that's their job they love it.

We have some good news. The indictments against Albrecht in the district of Maryland were dismissed with prejudice meaning. They can never be refiled. This is especially good because those indictments contain the only charge ever made that Ross engaged in murder-for-hire this was a serious allegation at raw outbreak. Denies it was never prosecuted or rolled on by a jury but was trumpeted by the federal government and the media. As if it were proven fact the Maryland Court held these indictments for almost five years poisoning case leaving him under a cloud of unproven allegations as explained blamed in Ross's appeal to the Supreme Court the fact that the judge used these allegations together all draconian sentence of life without parole violated his sixth amendment right to a jury trial judges Serb required to issue sentences based on convictions. decided by a jury not unproven.

You've been telling us about a Seattle police captain. Who has been arrested? He's he's in his fifties. He's been on the squad there for thirty one years and got caught for soliciting a prostitute yet. And now I want to know what's going to happen for twenty four four minutes and railways for forty dollars that he gave to an undercover agent undercover agent. Who is pretending to be a prostitute? And that's got me. You know looking up like Alex Jones courts make and what are they direct things than like. There's all these stories but I imagine an escort makes more than a street girl. You know your street girls are the kind of prostitutes. They're looking underscore. Some heroin or coker that makes sense so they're GONNA do whatever they're gonNA do for half the rate of what you would pay an escort. Okay Dander because that's where all the jokes come from the flight girls who will do a lot for very little money out on the street s going to be a little more classy. They're they're like a professional go live inside the way. This girl is talking in this article. She says I am investing a lot of money myself this year. which girls this this? This is a an escort now searching. Oh this is unrelated to the GOTCHA. Yeah including breast implants and some facial surgery that will feel more Justified demanding higher prices. I'm planning on spending twenty thousand Canadian while which is around sixteen thousand American in cosmetic medic surgery this year. But I'm hoping to see my annual income increased by at least fifteen thousand per year thereafter I don't like the amount of work involved with being independent and I think the stress of maintaining detaining a residence To work out of wouldn't be worth it so she works with an agency. There's all these trade offs like this is a real profession. These are talking about it. Sex work like work. Yeah I mean can you imagine how hard I work is. It's got to be very frustrating in a lot of ways. Yeah sex itself even if it's not your work as work right and then you've got customers who expect certain things and hopefully this prostitution needs to be legal and and you know you were hoping that maybe this this would lead to that conversation. That was my point yet was when I read this I was like well. This is great because hopefully nothing happens to this guy whereas normally I want to see justice. Oh the shoe's on the other foot now and I'd kind of like but I really want nothing to happen and for this to be like. Oh you know remember five years ago and the captain was arrested like you know. Let's get rid of this prostitution thing. It just doesn't seem like we need this law. It would if it goes that that's takes. That's what it's going to be. People are like well we always look the other way on this stuff. So let's just get rid of it and they're not gonNA come to a moral conclusion where they're like. Oh well we've been wrong it's wrong and it's always Enron you know that's not gonNA happen. Well I just you know. I wish that it would happen for a different reason. I wished that I think what realistically is going to occur. Here is the typical situation where he will apologize. So this is what it looks like what we would all I think hope happens where where it becomes legal and safe and like a real job is happening and this is the midway point where captain is arrested for it and no one really cares. Yeah we'll see it'll be it'll be interesting to see how he handles this is he gonNA clam up. IS HE GONNA make a public statement about how sorry he is and and you know is he married. So is he going to have to apologize to his wife As well you know is going to be this whole mea culpa thing please let me keep my job. I'll take take a demotion or whatever or is he going to say you know what. I'm not sorry. I was trying to help this girl out trying to help myself. And you're a dreamer. There's nobody say the all I'm sorry I have is. I'm an upright guy but but no I think everyone's GonNa no. That's not the reality that he's just shooting the apology for show and this is a fine behavior that they're like you know we know will ris. He's a good guy give it. Isn't this a state is. Is this a state law or is it a Seattle city. It's gotTa be a state law right like this is prohibited at the state level. So the odds that this is going to motivate state representatives to change their mind about this issue may not have. Yeah no but if it floats down from culture so it starts with the culture accepting this politicians titians are usually like fifty years after culture and so this is going to do what they want any way like based on what the general culture is they might not do exactly what the politicians want. Well the police can certainly use discretion. I mean they could have just not arrested him in the first place so the police are always free in most. Oh circumstances with with few exceptions there are certain as I understand it felonies that they they shallower estuaries. They have to but in most cases. They don't have to be I. I hope they raise a fund for this guy so that he can get a real escort service look cap like no. We don't need you going on on the streets streets like where we're patrolling around. You knew about this sting operation bro. Like okay we got a number for you. You just call this heads. Ed's it's sad that he was just on the streets like that. I mean there's gotta be professionals in Seattle. Of course there are thousands of the like I mean. I've never even looked into buying one of these things that I know there's websites you're supposed to go to write APPs websites. I mean the feds took down back page. So there's not that one anymore. I saw some weird story. There was a guy who who was soliciting sex using Arby's gift gift cards or whatever really I see I see guys soliciting donations. Just give me money on Grindr under and they're just like here's my pay pal. Send Me. That's not prostitution. That's just begging. No but I think they you. Did they perform services or just like they have photos though and they're like cute or sexy and they're just like give me. I don't know I like I find that insulting personally. Like oh wow I can get maybe get a picture or something from you for sending you money or I see it on the dating services. Where when young women do the same thing where they'll post their then mo like then mommy five dollars and see what happens like I'm not GonNa do that? I presume there's more be beyond the paywall. I presume it's a scam. Personally is what I presume. It is either a scam or it's just saw that they deserve something because they're pretty.

Oh you know his wife. Everyone does this. I've never seen anyone get in trouble for this like I'm just GonNa do well. If he wasn't in the Doghouse with his wife before now he probably is presuming. He's married.

Is You can send five bucks a month into the show and we will take that and it'll help us get on. New Radio. Stations bringing ringing new listeners on board with the show I will tell you this. I had a lunch today. Actually at the thirsty al here in town which is the crypto currency accepting Bar Ray. Hey it was the general manager of the former general manager of the station group. There's a radio cluster here in town that I've been advertising advertising for Crypto currency with this station group. And you guys knew about this I have mentioned on the air the GM And the sales guy so the sales guys been taking aching bitcoin directly for the for payments. And then he's like converting some of it to cash and giving cash to the radio stations. Effectively I get to buy radio ADS with crypto which is pretty cool But you know at some point because I'm a client right like you take your client out to lunch so a year ago. They took me out to lunch. Sri At the country club here in town. And how was it. It was fine. Hopefully China I mean it's a country club. It is what it is. Yeah you they were. He was trying to wine. Line in Dinu is trying to while you. Wow this is not very important. Apparently I'm not that impressed by country club care about country. Did they take bitcoin. The go-to right. They didn't take bitcoin dot cool. And but anyway the point of the meeting which was to talk to him and so he asked a lot of questions about crypto currency because he was brand new and play wasn't he already taking it at that point. No remember the the Sales Guy Oh sales has been was the intermediary I say he was accepting. I think this is a big radio corporation. You're not gonna be able to convince them to take crypto anytime soon right so like not with that attitude. Well companies on Jay in the House you and I won't gain BOOT my Because it is not easy bigger corporation the harder it is right and and so you know I'm sitting there having lunch with the general manager and everything and we're talking about crypto currency. He was brand new to it at the time. Well today you know not quite a year a year later but most of the year later he's he reached out to me and he had actually he left this radio group but he still living in keene and he wanted to meet up again and talk. More about Crypto Tayo. Oh and so. That's why we met up today and had like another hour and a half basically around twenty minute long get together and turns out that. He's he's really gotten interested in crypto currency. After we first had our Long Time Ago he bought a book about blockchain. Like a three hundred plus page page book. All about blockchain kind of like the equivalent of like blockchain for dummies. But it's called something else but I wonder which one lachine I know him. Yeah the anyway he Like he told me that he hasn't read a book straight through cover to cover in like decades s book he read Ninety Ninety five percent in the first day. That's understandable with Bitcoin. Because it's so exciting to see. How often do you encounter something completely fresh and new like an idea that you need to to really G- rock right and this guy was really really hooked and interested by the technology? That's the experience for a lot of people. Yeah and so he's like thinking about well. How can block chain solve problems for the radio business? and He's thinking always that it could help cut out the middleman and national ad sales that and I'm like that's pretty cool man. We just talked about one today but before before the show or Ways that you can pay multiple people with one output. Sure he could do that with the radio.

I WANNA give you mark like credit for actually leading me to freedom and I'm like I'm like heroic. Thanks for that. Well I was just calling into Wayne on your carrick real quick okay. The Captain Police Captain Busted for soliciting a prostitute or the captain. Yeah you guys act like he won't be treated like like kind of a member. The ruling class like she'll get a slap on the wrist for Beijing for a year. Whatever move on with his life just like any police officer gets arrested for course and the rest of us get a raw deal? Every time we correct on probation. They're they're gonNA let employees out to a community service charge or some community service sentence. That'll be it. That's my prediction. The soup no catch and move on with his life. Well the rest of us are. It's always a fine. You know that most of the work several months to pay off and everything. Because we're you know we're we're the moderate glad they don't give a dot com. We just can't let you get away with the toll. Free number here is eight hundred fifty five four fifty free too bad. That's a tough. It was an accident but the story of this story is be a member of the ruling class way easier once here near the top twenty percent you know like he really satisfying I mean is anything is I know. It's not about satisfaction action. It's just just just be that way and then you can find satisfaction in other ways but it it just makes life easier. I suppose I don't know it's just not attractive. You're you're already there. No I'm not talking about me but I don't have the desire to rule over other. It's not it's not ruling. It's just like you could easily pay a fine so say you got to find. I don't pay fines but if only suckers pay fines. If for some people a fine would be really expensive. He was saying he would take a couple of months to work off. They would be a real impact on their life for. You would be less less so but you wouldn't pay the fine so now yeah yeah. I don't pay fines and so I will do community service. I got no problem doing that. but I or I'll sit in jail. I mean I don't care I'm not GONNA pay. I will not pay the state because to me it. Just encourages them. The definitely does and I don't WanNA encourage them Eric Man Derek this big dilemma and he almost decided to Challenged a keen police city of keene police and again and bake them to get his car. Towed just wants to spend more time timing because he was like look. I Bet I bet if they find out that it's my car that they told them you'll drop all the charges because they know that I'm going to come into court with all this evidence and I'm GonNa be prepared right. I'M GONNA wave their time and we'll go all the way I will keep taking it. I'll make all the arguments to the jury. They're not going to get that money easily. Give up they dropped the ticket on our CO host nobody. He got a parking ticket and he went into well. It was it. Was the ticket left on the car that he was driving. The car is not registered to him. It's registered to a church But you know somebody should go and challenge it so nobody should go. Nobody challenged daily and and they said and actually was passed. There was like some notice that if it's passed this number of days than you can't challenge it and I said we'll just take it in there anyway away and demand your your court date and they said well you know what it looks like. Nobody's or it looks like This particular registrant hasn't had any issues before so we'll just go in drop it all right good never even had to go to court and our other CO hosts. Chris weighed on Friday nights defeated to parking tickets in Cork work. This Friday well not co host on Friday nights are co host He beat them in court. I mean he that it's on freaking. It's got two hundred thousand views or something see because everyone loves a victory story over the parking enforcers they're such menaces yes Everywhere and everyone knows it and the only money they bring in for the city is the money that goes to pay them going around there. It's neutral it's true. It's possible that I pay for more than just going around in parking on every day and I'm always paying I. I hear the cost of parking in Portsmouth. long-term on the street is actually pretty reasonable welfare to get a ticket long term it. It's hot I mean it's like I don't know a couple of dollars in dollars a day get a parking ticket. Depends on where you live. You pretty much got the whole day for fifteen bucks otherwise and you get like the most convenient spot so is it really take it or is it just a bill hostage. Yeah eight fifty five four fifty zero.

18. Matt Fortuna - National Reporter For The Athletic

"Welcome to gen z hoops. Gen z basketball coaching in sports business. Show on this podcast. You'll learn from confessional players coaches and executives from all over the world and see the court and a brand new way and now joining you. Courtside your gen z. Housed john hart phyllis. Hey what's going on. Don happy to be here how you doing. I'm doing great. I'm super excited to have you on. I mean we obviously both graduate from xavier high school. I was always getting named dropped and it came to the sports world. Whatever i'll talk about wanting to go into the sports industry you're always kind of goals like oh fortuna just graduate. He's one of those guys so awesome having you on. Well let's quite introduction. I'll try to live up to it by appreciate. Appreciate the rollout for me to be here just to kind of get a star taking all the way back to those days xavier. How some of those experiences and you being a manager xavier kind of prepared you for this career. You built yourself sports industry. Yeah no problem. I mean like every Red blooded american thought is gonna grow up and be a professional athlete right. A grown up in manhattan basketball was a sport a choice. I mean we had a small home. Say small wait. Wait a terrorist on our in our apartment growing up. My brother danny who. I'm sure you know new play basketball. We just play sunup to sundown outside on our porch. And we really have that advantage takeover. Everyone allison parks everywhere. We always always playing and long story short. I had some medical issues that that would not allow meets to play at xavier that as a teenager having that taken away from you. I'm probably a little more sympathetic than others right. Now when i see some athletes out there particularly the college level it to give something up because of a testing issue with the heart or something like that and mentally that message a lot at that time it not to sound cliche but it ended up the greatest thing that happened to me. Because i am five foot ten right now and i was five foot ten as an grader. So my dreams of growth into the next shack quickly went from being the starting center to the starting manager or the starting sportsman was because as able to deal with those emotions so to speak. Coach to fell was the jv coach at the time with a really good jv team my sophomore year. He invited me on to be due to manager. And i i managed that year. And i manage my senior year When my brother was a junior varsity team which is also. I don't wanna go safari. Say while the greatest teams the dave history because we didn't close the finish it all win at all but those a really good team i mean we. We had sammy's. But you know cardinal hayes one at all that year. That was a team. We've beaten on the road in that year so certainly we are right in that mix for that. I believe at the time of skull. The say vici chip of metro. What they call it now but those experiences you know just being around in athletic program taking stats down. Fetching errands for coach mcgrane. If you needed his dry cleaning it stuff you kinda laugh at in in. Hang your head at at the time. 'cause you're kind of an errand boy but you don't realize that's real life and your experience real life you know at a high school level whereas most people don't get to experience that until they're in college until they're at the professional level and so So much what. I learned there it so much of the structural manners which coach regret not enough. He's loosened up at all now all these years later but these tough guy. He was really tough being a manager. When you're at the scores table and you're able to kind of eavesdrop on other teams huddles Not like he is a different breed like he is driving you in everything you do whether you're a manager whether you're a backup point guard. Whatever he is pushing you in on you relentlessly. So i i learned a lot because i think if you can also you can survive. But i if you can learn how to handle demands needs at a high level in whatever you do in life that that makes everything easier for you when you go to college. And your but my caseworker student newspaper or freelancing high school sports stories and you gotta do things on deadline in you know people yelling at you for stuff. You're disabled process. Everything a whole lot better than the connections. I mean nate. Explain to you has special place. Eager is in how many great people came through there. Were part of that basketball for my senior year. Freshmen assistant coach was a guy by the name of kobe. Elements the he would drive you to brooklyn scout games with him and i. I will still hold that over my friends anytime. I've basketball debate with them. I say you know what. I scouted games with a guy who was brian. James blas one day with the cleveland cavaliers. The general manager so don't question my hoops now. But i think there's great lessons in there right leg. You gotta leave from the seat. You're in and you got to utilize all the connections that you have at your disposal Xavier's while the best places you could possibly do that and and it's so much to unpack right there because of course when it comes to accountability no institution. I think it's better than doing that. Xavier and when you're fourteen fifteen sixteen years old i mean i feel like i was held at a higher standard bearer. Even now that. I'm in college The exact same way. It's funny you say that the exact same feelings even some of the teachers at xavier. Who who were really on my case my senior year we all have senior irish right especially in high school when when you get that bursts college acceptance letter in there were guys who were were grinding me there and i was just like i'm done here already. Like what are you doing. And i remember. Get into coming back. I think for the turkey bowl for the My freshman year at penn state in college. Comeback as eager. And i see mr ligne. And i just got somebody like a now get it man him like you ran a college class at a high school level in every single class. I have right now is just like what you were trying to get us understand. And so as much as i didn't like it at the time so much better off offer. I'm all that stuff is is mind blowing for sure going over yourself at penn state. I did hear from coach mcgrane about the article you wrote. And the penn state newspaper and the game picked up by the new york times. That's definitely something that. Of course i would imagine. It was monumental foreign. Help jump-start everything. Can you give us the backstory. That ended up happening. Because that's that's yeah much much like xavier. I mean penn state's of rarely big school with a really big network. And i think if you're going to whatever your whatever field you're choosing and If you end up at a place like that you need to utilize all the resources at your disposal and you have if not the biggest one of the biggest lung association the country They have a great college communications. Which is what i whereas enrolled in there and a great student newspaper where where i wrote there for four years and I much like xavier. Very lucky to have so many great mentors in my coroner in facts. Here's a sort of my college advisor. At penn state was mandate by name malcolm. Iran now works in indianapolis. He's longtime reporterfor the your time today. Newsday the he's from bayside queens. His father's a graduate of your high school So we hit it off immediately and to have a man with that experience and with the same local connections that i did in central pennsylvania middle of nowhere. God bless of. i mean. It's a very remote place on the on the map. It could not be more different from manhattan if you try to draw it up to have someone like that in my corner through. Those connections was great. Detained your question with your times. There's a student from new jersey a couple of years ahead of me named mark the era. Who's now i believe. In law he had written a couple stories on a freelance basis. For the new york times when i was freshman sophomore. Here's a couple of years ahead of me in getting to see that getting to see that was possible at that age. I mean that was something that wasn't even on my radar so to have someone under the same roof as me at the school paper. Doing that just showed me. You know the possibilities are really endless. And i was fortunate enough. That as i ask my junior year. Ir miller. another penn state alum. Who's in the pro football hall of fame. He he was a longtime writer out of san francisco covering the forty niners during the days of montana. Rice he knows everyone and he was always very influential in very hands on it. A mentoring role to whoever was was at the school paper at that time. I got to know him a little bit and out of the blue he suggested. Pay your from new york next time your home on break. Why don't to go to the times office in. Talk to mike abrams. He's a penn state. Grad he loves her penn staters. What's the worst that can happen there right. I never in a million years thought it would've demi couple paid articles in the world's biggest publication is a college student but shared enough. I was lucky enough where that ended up. Being the case. I think part of that too for everything i said about how different central pennsylvania manhattan use to my advantage I would cover games for outlets. That didn't want to pay the money to send their writers on a plane train automobile or a one night stand in state college pennsylvania because it costs a lot less money to just pay student there to do the work in for me. I would not for free at that point. I was just trying to get my name out there so being around a big ten campus and being around a remote big campus where you the opportunities to cover so many big events and meet so many different people just tremendous resource in something. You probably the biggest reason. I am where i am today. Another article that you wrote the just released a what was the recent one about dr fauci and it was really funny with xavier and we just connection there. Was it writing going kind of went to it. Yeah that was eight to say so much fun because a serious subject in the middle of a pandemic but like personally rewarding. That one was really special for me to see the response. I mean that story perform very well at our website. That was rewarded as well. Because it reminds you that you don't have to just write about the lakers or notre dame or the big brands to to to get people's attention you can write about a guys to school what be that from. Staten island brooklyn from wherever the way. Tony vilocci did. When when he was a student regis. I i came across the idea probably the same way you did. I saw those pictures floating around right at the beginning of the pandemic a dr fauci. It is reach uniform in addition to going to savior which is regis as rival. I grew up eighty four third and went to save a nation's middle school directly across the street from region. So that is my neighborhood. Like to see that arguably the most important person in america right now came from that building that i passed every single day and played in the same basketball conference said that i i was a part of it as a student. That was really cool. I didn't think i'd get a chance to talk to him. And i didn't but i emailed the communication staff that reaches. Here's another funny like the world is small story. The communications director. Why did not know so mackerel tuna. I'm earning graduate dirty. Podcast what do you need help you. And so that was like wow this. The cards are aligning for here. This is working out perfectly and what happened was wall street. Journal had actually. This may be a little too inside baseball for you. But wall street journal was writing a very similar story in already contacted. Regis about it and the Communications person from regis was very upfront. These look already promises story to the wall street journal at camelback on my word you understand. Round coming from yeah. I understand where you're coming from. But i want to see you do something on this. How can you. let's talk. what what can we do. And so he presented to me jomon. Freddie who who is one of three one thousand point scores at regis at the time how he's from staten island and he's wearing tony fallacies number their connection there. And so i talked to the man. Freddie's who couldn't be nicer. I talked to coach derek. Obviously know all the coaches from xavier in. We're giving me some reading. You know one thing leads to another unplug. The peter andrew who is a good player just went on to play at davidson and there were so many connections there in a more from this. Hey the infectious disease. Expert of america play point guard in high school to hey infectious disease. Expert from america used to be a guy who used to take three trains a day the commute hour and a half each way to get to school to have the chance of this education to have a chance to play basketball to have a chance to create a better life for himself. And it's the same story that you'll mainframe from. Staten island that the latest thousand point score regis is experiencing. It's the same story that you had xavier albeit small at least for me as far level because at anti commute that far in manhattan but the same story that so many of our brothers. Xavier went through and continue to go through every single day. It really morphed into this human interest. Piece that i think i think anyone in new york particularly the catholic school system in new york was able to relate to colin. Jost who obviously went to reach us the snl on weekend update host anchor. He came out of the memoir. Shortly after my story published. I read excerpts from it about his commute from staten island. Regis every i thought holy crap. I called him up. If i cut right like. It's the exact same thing you have so many different people so many successful people from different fields that all came from nothing because at least speaking personally i had a pretty privileged upbringing but but came from pretty humble beginnings in startups. If you will to get to where they needed to get to And to have the success they had. And i just think commonalities there no matter what you're doing in life principles the trains the commutes. You name it. There's definitely a common thread there. And i think that resonated with a lot of people infectious disease expert used to play basketball but it turned into a human interest piece. And when you said the word you mentioned piece got me thinking like wow. That's that's exactly what it was it wet so much further than the original point of the story. And that's that's i would imagine what you want out of any any peace you do- absolutely kevin brennan. By the way. Communications chief for for regions showed him out because he was such a big help. Was everything you hope that a communications person can be yes. I mean personally from a personal rewarding standpoint. Cuban interest is what i go for. I think it's it's really hard. Not impossible really hard. I think to make whole career out of that especially in this time. It right now and look at a sports as much as the next guy going to games. At least a non-kill times interviewing big time athletes and coaches at. That's what i get up every morning looking forward to doing it and telling their stories. And i love doing that but gandhi chance to do pieces like data especially at a time like this in our country with special rewarding hell long personal resonance for me because there was definitely some personal related ability there and again Overwhelmed by the response from so many people. I don't say that about myself or anything like that. I just. I wrote that story because it was neat. It was interesting. I wasn't sure if there will be an audience for that. I kind of took a leap of faith. They're just made it my own kind of personal pet project if you will it end. The audience was great on the sponsors create in. I just think it was a really cool. Need the way that that all came together a really strong earnings ford here back in the city. Obviously you've been doing a lot of college football stuff. In the last few years you start. I noticed there was a stint with the yankees and internet. You've always had a passion for basketball even going back to high school. What have how. How did you end up settling on football. And what was it is piano with. Really coming into your own and settling with the sport of football. You know it wasn't necessarily by design. I going to college football school so to speak like that piqued my interest. I always love the sport. But i you know. New york is not a hotbed for college. Football as we all know right it college basketball more so probably than it is now due to the talent drain in the city but now i skip school to go to the big east tournament for some of those day sessions obsessive college basketball. I would watch college football. But i didn't grow up on it the way so many people entrenched in that sport did porta. That was was what i wanted to go to penn state right. I got to catholic school my whole life. Not saying this. Just because i'm on this podcast foremost educational years my life. Where the jesuit education. I got i. It's eight year high school. I really believe that. I have always had more of a personal connection there than i did. Penn state and that's not against penn state. I had a great time there. But for whatever reason i just had easier time stay in touch and connected to that place that i have in college but i wanted to try something different for college. I mean i was very close to go into loyal maryland. Where a number of my friends. And i think probably still to this day. A lot of people from xavier goater. Because there's another great jesuit school that's in the region and i remember thinking to myself. You know lot wherever. I go when i'm in college. I'm going to be waking up saturday morning watching college game day in watching college football. And i don't want to sit there on the tv. Saying i wish. I could be there now and i wonder what that's like and i wonder what it's like to maybe get a chance to talk to write about that. If that's what. I wanna do for a living. So ultimately i went with penn state that has strong communication school and and that's what ended up choosing new and it was a great decision. I mean it's it. Paid off for me rightly personally professionally. I got out of there just in time. it's probably another podcast for another day about what happened there after i graduated but i ended up covering a big ten football team and basketball team which was actually pretty good. When i was there they made more command license a tournament. Berth was my senior year. There so so i was able to get opportunities at a high level college football and college basketball and it just kind of worked out that way for me. College football wise. Espn dot com. Had outs me in the spring of my senior year. Again through a connection is made with a beat writer cover michigan michael rossi who now covers alliance for espn dot com. We hit it off when michigan was playing penn state. We've just got to know each other. And they were hiring. Michael to cover michigan wristband dot com. They were expanding their college. Coverages was very small at the time and they wanted to get to more of a beat team by team approach and they asked michael for young ak chief talent and again no i. I was young energetic naive. Obviously privilege because i was in college i would have done this job for free but i am january. Say i would have done anything for any kind of opportunity. Let alone one at the worldwide leader so they reach out to me later might seniors. Let's keep your touch yada yada yada. At that point. I had already lined up an internship in it'll be dot com covered the yankees which was also dream dream. Couple months for me gantry. Yeah not paying rent right. Got to live with my dad and city and then go to the bronx everyday like the normal summer for fun almost painted in going and buying a ticket but i was not married to college football. I was ready willing and able to do whatever i was called upon to do. But because the bulk of my experience came at penn state that's whereas most marketable the in familiar so to speak and one thing led to another. I got hired to cover notre dame for espn and i've been in the midwest ever since In my pressure life in chicago now still doing a lot of notre dame but doing general college football in a few things in the air for the athletic in that just kind of the way he played out i love. The sport is awesome. But it's kinda funny if you told me in high school i'd be covering sports for a living. I'd say that's awesome. Things worked out exactly. Hydro them up. If you told me. I'd be covering football. I probably would scratch my head a little bit just because i i did not grow up going. I never been to college football game right until my freshman year penn state florida international which is coached by man named mario cristobal. Who who's now coach at oregon senator fear for himself as well. It just kind of funny how that played out and i like to take up still young or just turned thirty two. I want to cover as many things as possible. And i want college football to be a stronger. Part of that is possible. But maybe one day i can cover the mba on the year. Nfl or do everything general. Which in some ways. I get a chance to do algebra. I love working at the athletic chance to write about dr faustus high school basketball career. Which again is a story that you never would dream of riding on the surface but but turned out to be a really fun experience so great. I mean obviously spaghetti affording opportunity to stick your hand in in whatever story you want to choose as opposed to whatever the number by tell you that okay. You have to only strict talk about college football. You have the liberty to do to do what you wanna do. What was that transition like then going from. Espn to the athletic and be a part of the family. Yeah there's a six month gap in between there and left. Espn at the end of two thousand sixteen freelance for a little bit and i really enjoyed the freelance life. I mean i know in some ways. We're on bosses in that especially now. We're all working from home and kind of charge of our own schedules. But that i. I was really my own boss. I mean i- i networked i marketed myself. I went out there. I did as many things as humanly possible to position myself for an opening if one were to come up especially in the chicago area where i was living at that time still now but there were six months. There are freelance work. And i think i learned a lot about myself because it validated my belief in this business even when things were going poorly i mean we saw so many layoffs at that point. We're talking winter. Spring of twenty. Seven t now. Espn fox yahoo sports illustrated you name it. So many of my colleagues as well as many were laid off left and right and was like what are they gonna do here. And so i just kept grinding covered a lot of baseball covered last for football. And then stewart mandel who was part of the fox layoffs at the time called me out. It is actually advice. You backtrack To make short story long. But i remember we just got him back from a trip to cape cod. I just got turned down for a fulltime opening somewhere. That i thought i was going to get inside as it is what it is. The associated press just offered me a free lance season-long gave the coveting football. I thought yell up. I'll give it. I'll give it. The rest of the calendar year are couch with all this year for the associated. Press save up that money and if nothing else comes up might need to start looking at some other careers here because there's just the market is completely dry right now as much as i love the bosses probably a sustainable long-term future and the day i get back from cape cod. I got a call from stewart. Mandel which just look at fox and who now's the editor in chief. College football vertical at the Would you know about the athletic in funny enough. The athletics first website was in chicago. They had hired a number of people who just on leadoff at espn chicago. Some of whom. I had worked with because i got laid off at the same time. Continuous talks football. And i said i love it. i already subscribed from. I know these guys now. I see them at the cubs games. You know whenever i go there i know a lot about what are you doing with them. All right now. I know that for being chicago. Say say well you know. They asked me to help. Launch the controversy vertical and the need to recruit writers. Would you be interested at salihi interested in you kidding me like i'll take any job right now let alone working for someone. I know in working for a website. That although in its infancy i come to really remind respect from afar and even then at that point was thrilled as i was to be part of the ground level. If you will the constable vertical the attic to give you a picture we had eight time. Writers and editors when we launched in august twenty seventeen and three years later probably close to sixty nervous in college football. I never in a million years would have thought would grow this fast. This great in become Like to call it. The daily sports illustrated we all sports illustrated grown up. Waiting a ruined save for that to land mailbox and regret riding. Now you get that ever. Nancy athletic Into be part of that. Get to be part of that. Such an early stage of the company's existence was an absolute through and never could have predicted all the success for this company coming this quick but i definitely believe in their vision. I believe to the people behind it. And it's you know it's been very very fortunate to be in possession stab some of the opportunities. I've had it's been really awesome. Really seen us drought during the pandemic like that's unheard of. It's been really special. And i think being with these people during the dark times of this country so to speak is only validated while level will be here so much like you mentioned with the pandemic of course the opportunity to afford it for the last few have been fantastic. But this presented a new opportunity to grow in terms of how you're going to be different and and be able to respond to a pandemic outside of the normal challenges of maybe conducting interviews on zoom and things like that with any other obstacles that you feel like the pandemic kind of brought up that jeff Yourself did a great job of kind of navigating and getting better from we. We've done got credit. Our leadership Our co-founders alex. Mather and adam hansen. they're great communicators. They're very hands on bosses. They're very approachable. Which you don't always get you rightly. Rarely get no matter where. You're working a lot more scared of coach. Mcgrane than i am of these guys and i say that with all due respect to these guys. They're great guys worked for the communication the approachability friendly reminders about how they're here for us and how we need to give ourselves mental breaks especially since we're not seeing each other we could check. Nih other as much as we want the zoom and phone calls but we. We don't really know how everyone's handling everything and some people are obviously dealing with this on a much more personal In physical level frankly From a health point than others might concerns in my needs over the last year. Probably been no different than most people. You know but but i i've had a pretty good. I mean my wife myself. My kid were all healthy. We're working from home. I mean that. That's our challenge right by another desk that we can both work. I always work from home. I've welcomed in a new co worker if you will with my wife who's learning how to work from home now because she was used to work nine to five in office every day dealing with childcare needs and things of that nature is been different than a challenge. But you know something. I happy to advocate. Because i love the people on live with people that i'm working with it as far as my day to day job the thing i love about the athletic more than anything else is that it affords us the opportunity Stories by that. I mean they give us the tools in resources entrust necessary to go out and do those stories and for me. That's having free rein so to speak to go to certain parts of the country. No matter how you're far to get to meet people to get to learn about their stories and help them tell their stories and to make as many connections as humanly possible without that help human element that slacking. I missed going to games and see people i in some ways. I'm doing more than i've ever done before. Because i can get on press conferences in evanston illinois south bend indiana in los angeles california after this and knock them all out like that and get all the actual daily information. Id but so. Is everyone else right. I don't get a chance to really distinguish myself or to get out there and get some time along with a coach player or pr person who need to build a relationship with so i still think is digital as much as social media has come to dominate this field at its heart. It's still people business relationship business. And i'm looking forward to the day. The world is order restored for lack of better term so that we can get back to connecting the way that we really like to connect humid human. Hopefully that day comes soon hopefully vaccinated world on that same note. How do you think the entire landscape of print and media journalists is gonna shape out at the end of all this transparency. If there's any analytics for that you kind of think that have used parts of the industry that used to not work the now we've kind of gotten better at y'all got to become more tech savvy and i'm look i'm the most guilty person in the world of that like i think i'm good enough. It's social media by note. I know how to do it. I know what not to do. But i know means innovator anytime i see something new or someone posts something. A cool graphic. Whatever kind of like our. How'd you do that. Like i'm that's one place i definitely need to grow. And i think that's a place going to be even more emphasize given that more in this disconnected state. If you will. I'll be curious to see once. Most of the country's able to get vaccinated. A lot of these schools particularly the college level were very closed off and limited in how much they let their coaches and players. Speak and deal with the media. Are they going to you. Lose the pandemic as excuse to completely shield us off because again. I was able to get who i needed on zoom here but i be on call twenty other people. I was not able to pull a coach aside. give him my business card. And say hey. Let's get to know each other. I mean look i. i've had some indepth. I think successful interviews with players one on one via zoom but for someone like the who really tries appeal back as many layers as possible. Telling someone's personal story. They're still that loss of human touch of sitting in the room and observing adams. Everybody and be able to feel me entrust me and so forth. I got to be better at trying to do that. On zoom and i think we all need to be better at trying to do that on zoom. Because i don't think zooms going away anywhere i think if there's a positive we've learned how productive we can be with very limited resources here because we're all playing from the same playbook so to speak so there have been some positives that come out of it. I hope that that human connection human touch human element of what we do does not get completely shattered away because we've all learned how to be much more efficient doing things in the world. Zoom beautiful stuff and i mean this is awesome matt. Thank you so much for coming on the way. You've got in depth on all these questions. I've just learned so much about both. Whether it's the industry of course reflecting on your time at the parallels i pull to it from my experience there and i can see both what you do in the future and account talk again soon absolutely not. Thanks so much john. It's been a pleasure. I love your background over listeners. But got magic. Johnson kristaps porzingis Ended the grupo in xavier cheers. I love it.

This is America's sports talk show sports byline USA. Here's Ron Bar Joe. Horrigan joins us on sports byline. Usa Pro Football Hall of fame Executive Vice President. He's been doing this for a long time in excess of forty years and I wanted to have joe on to talk about the hall of fame because it's not your dad's hall of fame. It certainly has changed and they also have a wonderful pro football hall of Fame Card Collection Out. We'll talk about that as well. But Joe take me back to when you join the hall of fame. What the hall of fame was like back. Then give us a little bit of a history lesson but it's it's really remarkable story that tell people here we're going through so many changes right now physically. I say you know. Take a good heart book because a week from now you won't remember what it used to look like and literally been here so long I have a hard time. Remember what it was like when I started backing Pete. Seventy seven but it was a much more I would call it a more quaint place than it is today in the sense that you know the the NFL was growing in popularity and growing in size. It now extending the hall of fame was really just kind of coming into its own at that point. We'd only been around since nineteen sixty three. I think when I got here tonight Employees working at that point there but they came and went before me but We were a staff of nine and that's not very many people. Were you know Gosh? Probably closer to sixty at the moment. Wingspan during the summer to over two hundred it was just. It was where we were and we have been on the upward Arch-foe ever since we don't have much dust settle into our feet. But we're embarked right now. Perhaps the biggest not perhaps definitely the most aggressive growth in the next two years Then all of the years combined before it more than fifty third years so that's a lot of time but it it's been a very different place. Ron It just is grown so much and chain so much as you say. It's not your father's oldsmobile anymore. We're really very state of the art and with some of the new things we're doing now stack stepping into the next generation of entertainment stars. How people will consume the pro football hall of fame? What is the legacy philosophy of the Hall of fame today? Joe What's interesting because we we have the delicate balance it You know museum than we operate them to the highest standards of museum operations for the same time. We do recognize the entertainment value of what we do. And we're building a huge Campus here to do that. Everything from you know we created our new stadium's going does have a built in the stage right into that spans where we'll be putting on concerts as you're tim. Mcgraw will be your over hall of fame weekend. That's already sold out But we also are putting in a four or five star hotel. We're putting in a center for excellence. Which is the performing center. Where we'll have everything from a indoor football arena to indoor basketball arena? Thirteen football field. We want can't be what Middle Baseball in williamsport is can't will be to football here so it's really we've grown from just that small operation into a state of the art museum plus an entertainment complex plus a youth Organisation plus a center for corporate excellence and And Excellence in general the sense of playing excellence. So we're trying to embrace every aspect of the game. Were focusing highly on the way the game if it came for life as we call it where a character council where we try to build from what Football teaches into everyday life for all of us. And I think we're doing pretty good job at it but there's so much more to come. Where just really excited about where we're going no doubt about it When it comes to sports memorabilia is such an important part of kind of collecting the history of any sport and I know the hunt. Caster line pro. Football Hall of Fame Card Collection is is coming out. Tell me a little bit about that onto is. It's not a Lamar Hunt. Founder of the American Football League in the Kansas City chiefs and he himself president. That's he doubts the soccer club and his business partner and friend Robert Castro line. Who's a investment art dealer Put together the most comprehensive and valuable football card collection in the world it's valued somewhere between six to ten million dollars And it's approaching three hundred thousand cards but in that collection are the most highly graded tards particularly hall of famers in the world that adds to the value that greeting so much. A part of you know the condition of the car makes it a value so much more significant than just having the car that we all stuffed into a shoebox of rubber bands on But there collection may Tankan the seven hundred most valuable and rarest pieces and put it into. We're building an exhibit here To showcase them. And then it'll be here for about six months to nine months and it'll travel the country then going to a cultural institutions most of the artists cushions around the country. Some other people can see this. But it's an amazing collection right. It goes back to the turn of the century the very first football car. Which by the way was Harry Beecher? Who was a captain of the Yale Football Team in eighteen ninety one and he happens to be the great grand nephew of Harriet? Beecher stub great American author of clinical. Tom's cabin. So there's so many different things about football it's about pop. Culture are in it has a little bit of American history involved in it. So it's a really exciting exhibit. It'll be here and at the same time and I'm going to jump ahead working show short on time but we're also at the same time opening Brand new Entertainment Exhibit. It's called a game for life and it is a totally immersive theatre where it involves Fifteen projectors Hologram theater sixty chandler sixty speakers of sound all around the hall of Fame Locker Room created. Look like if you will the field of dreams of football only in the locker room environment and It's an intimate theatre that people will be totally immersed into this This holographic presentation using Joe. Nemeth than we bring back Vince. Lombardi and George Halas and a number of hall of famers telling the story of how football influenced and changed their lives and and what that game for life next to them. Really the next generation of Museums Joe. I know you've either. Authored Co authored edited or even been a contributing writer several other books and one of them is the pro football hall of fame answering book. And I'm just wondering what question is most asked about the hall of fame you know what's funny that maybe the number one question is. Why is it in Canton? Ohio and nets From a business perspective. They come here and they really don't know that the National Football League was actually founded here in Campbell out back in nineteen twenty But that's that's from the general. You know here type of question. I think really when you look at football history different than baseball baseball for many. Many years was America's Sport America's Pastime. And we all knew about. Babe Ruth and Lou gehrig and Joe Dimaggio and Mickey Mantle and Roger. Marris football. Didn't have that identity really until about nineteen sixty Is Football began replaced baseball? America's favorite sport keep going back and looking at the vintage history of purple. So it's all new territory for then they're learning about the red granges and the sandy balls down Hudson Ablett. You and I know very well. The average fan really doesn't know much about so I think they find the football history to be new territory for them and they're very very nostalgic and fun to go back and look at and we got about two and a half minutes left and I'm just wondering if anybody ever wants to go to the hall of fame induction ceremony. I've been there. I said one time before Joe Montana and Ronnie Lott when they were put in. That was one that was on the Front Porch. The author and now it has moved into the stadium. Everything and just briefly. Tell everybody what that weekend is like. Well it's it's Football Mardi Gras we local basis. It's about ten days but for the real heart and soul of the whole thing experiencing trying to weaken. It really begins on Thursday night now where we have what we call the goal jacket dinner with a hall of famers and get their presented with their all go jacket with four thousand of their closest friends to being present and it's now televised and NFL network as well and Friday we of the concert in our stadium. Twenty two thousand people won't be there to welcome pin the garage at Selo crowd. That's on Friday night on Saturday. He was the big bet. The schreibman ceremony it's televised by NFL network and ESPN and that is again back in our stadium. And that's really where we'll have about one hundred thirty Returning Hall of Famers at ten. That nowhere else. Do you ever see that many hall of fame in one place at one time and then Sunday. We have the Saturday night game so we flipped that stadium from a concert on Friday night. He's chiming on a Saturday night to game on Sunday night. And all for your sold out and it's an amazing event is amazing weekend and there's all sorts of events in between even parade retailer. Fifty Thousand People Welcome All the hall of famers and it's about the fifth largest country now That you know Kinda kicks off things. We use events we have Events all through the community fireworks and concerts and all that sort of thing. But there's really they say something for everyone of every age in every level of football fandom in about forty seconds. Is there a moment in your? You know being involved with the hall of Fame Museum and Everything That sticks in your mind Joe about the experience for you you know. There's so many more moments that I think you know every year something it hits me boy. That's a you wanNA capture and remember. Sometimes I look back at what really captures it for me is every year. We hear the hall of famers making their speeches and it's usually not about football. It's about Shanley. It's about the people who help them. It's about the people they wanNA thank and that to me is really the. The Human Element of this game was too often. We we talk about your accomplishments on the field. And there'd be recognized for that no question about it but they get on the stage and they think everyone else. And that's what really makes worthwhile for us. Joe I WanNa thank you very much. Our friendship goes back a long way looking forward to seeing you when I come back next to the hall of fame and thank you for the insight and kind of the tour of the new.

He also played wide receiver for three seasons with the forty niners and he was part of the nineteen eighty-four Super Bowl champion. Forty niners team. Take me back. I know you were born in New Jersey but tell me about growing up. Well I was born in a little town. Scotch plains. New Jersey and I'm father was very much into sports. Having played football himself so he introduced my brother and I the three of us. My brother my sister's youngest but he introduced all of us to you know in Different Sports Teams coaching this and Recreation Basketball Basketball and baseball teams in Pop Warner football and just exposing us to. I think more importantly just disciplined to the various Sports we also did martial arts as well and We lost our my my mom in nineteen seventy three. I was fourteen years of as through lung and breast cancer. So she never got to see me. You know flourish as a as an athlete at any level but anyway And my father just was very driven in wanting us to be the best that we could be in any and all things that we do. Unbeknownst to me. I Nev- I never even knew about. I Athletic Scholarships for College. I knew I was. I wanted to go to college but I didn't know that I could go to college via athletics. And one thing led to another ninth grade. Math teacher Larry. Thomas said to me one day. If I worked really hard I could get a scholarship to college that excited because I said well no. I WanNa go never asked my dad. How is going to go? But I had every intention on going in when that happened it it. It lit a fire onto me and I was hell bent on trying to be the best. I could be starting quarterback on the Varsity football team. I got recruited for footballing though. It's kind of small and then. I just kind of took off and the track and field. I broke my ribs. I think it was the fourth game of the year and the football season and Mico said that was a blessing in disguise because enabled me to spend more time running than getting banged up and one thing led to another broke the national record and a hundred and ten meter hurdles national record and a three hundred meter hurdles and before. You know it Every college in America was coming after me to. And and you know it wasn't protracted that time it was purely an amateur sport and but for me. It was everything that I had ever dreamed of because I knew I wanted to go to college now had found a way to go to college and you know God knows what else what transpired. Rinaldo one of the things I've always known is that when it comes to athletes the two inspirations or motivators for them have usually been apparent probably a father but also a young coaches. Well Tell Me What your dad instilled with you and also the other kids about playing sports. Quitting was never an option. You know my father always said if you start something. Finish something and it didn't matter the outcome he he built character us Most importantly if To my dying day you know your name means everything to you. And that's all you'll ever have is your name and so the integrity You know the the moral fiber of his character and so my father always wanted us to put forth the best efforts that we could and try our best and we only have learned over the years. have an audience of one. I'm only competing against myself and as long as I put forth my best effort. Then I've done my best. I've never had to compare myself to anyone else. And that was very comforting. Because when you're competing obviously there are people that you're competing against but no one that you competing against can really keep you from doing your best and putting forth your best and My also taught me early on that. The worst that can happen was said I lost but I wasn't gonNA lose my life They're still gonNA love me. I'm still going to have friends and that to Being instilled in a young kid it gave me great confidence in spite of all the different athletic challenges. That I was facing that I I always could settle on that comforting point that was driven home to me and so I was a I call it the wild syndrome you know. I always wanted to allow people mainly myself because No one could keep me from doing what I was doing. So and I didn't know what I was capable of unless I tried and so I would go for it. And what's the worst that could happen? I didn't do it but at least I went forward and so I had this reckless abandon and attitude and just wanted to wow people while myself and go forward and not a mother and her dying days She saw that in me. That that that in eight Inquisitive Nature and she said in Hall of fame speech she said. Don't let anyone tell you what you can do. Makan thinking man can do it and I recall that vividly when I broke thirteen second barrier because nobody had ever done what it could be done and so those types of words of encouragement and support from chew pivotal people in my life. My mother and father You know set me on my way. I always find interesting. You Play Team Sports. So you know that mental concept of inclusiveness but when you get into an individual sport maybe it's off. Maybe it's tennis track and field as well. There is a mindset change there. Tell me a little bit about it. That adjustment and how one gets into the the singleness of being an athlete Where your performance is determined your success or failure. It's interesting because I've always been sort of a lone wolf guy. I kind of always wanted to bear the responsibility. We lost that. I blamed it on myself. I did not like the feeling of having the point the fingers. It's someone else team concept that if you will They didn't do their respective jobs. Therefore we lost and And it was pretty interesting because when I went to the forty niners so many people say well. Aren't you afraid and intimidated? And I go wait a minute. I was around the world by myself many times in one of those eight lanes and it'd be seven other guys who sometimes didn't even speak my language and fans even know I said that was intimidating and I said I learned to harness all those names. Id so now that I have ten other guys helping me. I'm fine. I'm good and so and the same thing you know. I didn't have performance anxiety. I mean Kinda thrived on. I guess showing off if you will 'cause I was so happy and blessed to have the talent that I had that I want to show that talent and so anytime I was in track and field. I gave me a chance to just do what I did. do what? I loved which was hurtling. I love the feeling hurling. I love how it felt. Its inception of the artform of it and then. I love the appreciation that I I was getting from the fans who appreciate it what I was doing and I felt an obligation If I'm going to do this I mean he's we'll do to the best of my ability and say it was a it was a certain level of freedom to be by myself You know put on my blinders on a horse race and as I said earlier. Have an audience of me anche. Allow me to do what I do. And it's the same thing when I'm on. A golf course is set sense of freedom That oneness the serenity in a hurdle race. It's so quiet even though there could be forty thousand fifty thousand people. It's so quiet when I'm in my one this myself and then I'm just floating effortlessly and running the feel of the freedom of running and and happiness that it gives me and so And then I had this I had this passion for you can't teach Someone you can't give someone heart when they run. We hear that a lot of time. There's so many people who are talented. But what separates the great and that is where fear lists We know that we can be defeated. But we're not afraid to be defeated and so you just go for it and you have nothing to lose but the event or the game and and that doesn't overwhelm you so I love that thought of And I might lose. But if if it were up to me. I'm GONNA do everything in my power not to and harnessed that thought into useful energy into an adrenaline. You know to producing prolly excessive testosterone in the moment to to win those races or to do well in those those situations we have about forty five seconds before we have to break your sophomore year at Maryland proved to be kind of breakout year. You broke the world record in one hundred ten meter hurdles twice in two weeks when you go back and visit that were you able to break it down and see why you were so outstanding during that period of time quite frankly no. I remember one day. Ncwa'S I had broken the world record indoors. Four or five times that indoor season and I remember my coach Frank. Stella we were going out to the Bruce Jenner Classic May Sixteenth Nineteen Seventy Nine and we WANNA right. We went out there for spring break and we were going to. It was right after spring break. And we I was running my first race to one of my nemesis at the time. Dd Cooper San. Jose City College was there and I was so upset because I hadn't done any Spring Training and everything was at sixty sixty yards at the time here. I'm running into this guy so upset with my coach and then I realized I you know there's nothing I can do about it on the line. I'm going to have to go for it. I don't WANNA lose. I'm not afraid to lose. I'm actually getting angry about this. Because these guys train year round and great weather and I don't Renamo Nehemiah has joined us here on sports byline.

Drinking DOT SAMSA DOT go. This is America's sports talk show sports byline USA. Here's Ron Baugh Renaldo Nehemiah has joined us here on sports byline besides being a world centre. When it came to the hurdles he broke the thirteen second barrier and established a world record in the one hundred ten meter hurdles also played in the NFL for three seasons with the forty niners in one a super bowl championship. Rinaldo during a four by four hundred meter. Relay you described your four hundred meter leg this way so I just ran harder and harder as the noise of the crowd got louder and before I knew it. I could see Villanova's Tim Dale and the Finish Line about twenty meters in front of me as I was really starting to be overwhelmed by the pain. I dug one more time with all I had and I searched passed a fading. Dale and I believe that I won by a couple of meters afterwards. I told myself that I would not ever feel that type of pain again in my life and I never ran another four hundred meter again. That pain What you feel during the course of a competition. Tell me a little bit more about that. And what you were saying that quote well as I was running to the roars of the crowd and as I was feeling fatigue set upon me It wasn't the breaking point and And then I it's amazing what you think about And I did want again. Quitting was not an option. So if I just you know Relaxed a little bit to back off a little bit then. I would have been quitting in quitting on myself and so I knew I headed in me. I had never I had gone. I was going places I had never gone before physically And but I didn't know how far I could go and I was that close. I was that close and it was worth digging now. One more time seeing what I had in me also recognizing that I didn't want to quit and then as a result of it you know when you when you come out on the other side you always do To do my belief The pain that came with it was overwhelming and I always said to myself. I want to be able to talk after my race. One tenth. I'm winded but I can still talk that. Four hundred meters it was it was gut wrenching But it it was a milestone day for me. It was one of the greatest days At the Penn Relays Penn relays purposes. It was greatest day for me and my athletic career because it showed my well roundedness. It showed courage tenacity It's set a lot about me as an athlete and It probably shows a lot of my my greatness at that time before me. Even breaking the ultimate war record on the thirteenth second barrier so But most of it had to do with. You won't know if he can do it if you don't try it all and he's that close he's that close. It'd be a shame to be that close so go for it and wherever it ends up it ends up and but I'm glad I did have a couple of extra strides in that. I was able to eclipse him. You know within a couple of meters of the finish line and speaking of being close. You're the prohibitive favorite to win the one hundred ten meter hurdles in the nineteen eighty summer Olympics. But you were able to compete. That's because the United States among sixty four nations boycotted those games because of the Russians invasion of Afghanistan. I know that to be the pinnacle of all athletes efforts. When it comes to sports particularly in track and field and swimming as well but what was it that bothered you the most about that decision and your inability to be able to compete on a world stage like that. The main concern I had was that they allowed the nineteen eighty winter. Olympians to go and microalgae only those guys it'd be the Russians and I just felt the the announcement of the boycott came prior to the Winter Olympics and yet the Winter Olympians got the go which gave some of us are most of US FALSE. Hope that maybe we might still get the go especially since we beat you people who were I guess having the difference with politically which was Russia and and so when that didn't happen it was very frustrating. Because you know I didn't think politics should pat a part in what we were doing on the athletic fields but also fell at time. That was probably the the simplest form of war without going to war with a country. By just saying okay. We're GONNA boycott your games and that impact that it would have on them then It hurt me because I am training like other athletes for four years. And you know the defining moment as you mentioned is trying to not only go to Olympic Games but actually went on a metal and being a favorite to win the gold medal All I needed to do was just get there and show that I could do it and so it hurt me a long time. It took me probably about twenty seven years even WanNa talk about it Because At that time I was still emotionally mature. I was for most in temporarily for me a defining moment but I recently started a blog. In one of my. I think it was my second third second blog road not letting setbacks to find you and I talked about that nineteen eighty boycott and not allowing that to be a defining moment in my career. You know because I could have gone to. The Olympic Games had we not boycott it and lost that race with that had made me Less great just would have lost that race and I talk about. I gone on and I'm in a national hall of fame in the New Jersey. Sports Hall of fame in Maryland Alumni Hall of fame that Maryland Sports Hall of I went on the continued to accomplish things and I didn't let that significant setback be really significant in my life. Actually today people still introducing yes. Olympic gold medalist supply me. Correct him as you know. I never walked into an Olympic stadium as an Olympian. Yes I am and I'm in Pan. I never had the privilege. Wow you want everything we thought. You WanNa go metal so I did not so. That's proof that that that particular day good not define my career. Let's switch gears and go to another aspect of your career. That was the football aspect that you signed with. The forty niners covered that press conference that day and Bill. Walsh was a dear friend of mine and I thought to myself as I watched you at the press conference and also knowing bill as well as I did because did the play by play at Stanford when he was there the first time and knowing how he thought he always liked to dictate the tempo of the game he did not react to the other teams. So it made sense to me that you were signing because bill saw Joe Montana. A lot of people didn't believe in Joe but he saw something that fit into his system and he saw something in you as well tell me a little bit about the decision to play professional football and that three year experience well. Mine decision primarily Was because of the loss. She was very progressive than his his mindset. It's forward thinking Always thought out of the box saw things that people didn't see. He was a great manager of talent. And so I said Joe Montana who a lot of people didn't think was as good as he ultimately was So bill had previous experience. Before I came there that you know you don't judge a book by its cover and so I was very grateful for the opportunity and the skill set that I was bringing to the team. At that time. He felt as the game was progressing. That would fit nicely into their offense of scheme. I know the physicality of the game can wear and tear on you and you were in a sport track and field with that was not a factor unless you fell on the track but that was certainly not the factor in professional football and that one game against Atlanta where you were going across and I mean. I haven't seen a hit that bad in a long long time. How did you adjust your thinking to be able to accept that as part of the competition you were playing in well twofold one? I'm thankful to God that I never saw opposing defender. Kenny Jonsson coming Today that would be illegal. Hit doesn't happen today So it didn't affect me going going forward afterwards because I had been watching it on film to believe that it happened to me And then to it. It affected bill. Walls probably more so than affected me because bill to his credit Had great respect for my half my athletic ability my track career and what I represent it as the world's best hurdler playing on the San Francisco Forty niners and so when bill saw that hit with everyone else I think it rocked him to his core more so than anyone and he just did not want to be responsible for ruining my career or having me. My you know my body being wrecked or paralyze or whatever the circumstances were and then so it seemed like every game year after that hit it changed his whole perspective on how the play me and how to use me and he became almost like a surrogate father. Trying to protect me as much as possible and putting me in the most You know safe Situations which is virtually impossible when you play in a full contact sport like professional football but so and it was very frustrating for me afterwards because I would say to him you know I didn't. I didn't give up my athletic career to play part time. I don't get this opportunity to be an athlete but so long when it's over it's over and I'll never could these days back and and he's just here to me. It's well you know. He never wanted to see me. Get hit like that ever again. I remember I would play a lot on artificial turf more than I would grass. And he just said 'cause you know so fast we felt out faster than everybody on the turf and I said bill if I'm faster and everybody anyway I'm faster. Whatever the surfaces grass or otherwise but so those types of conversations he would I he and I would have and everybody on the team who we were playing on Fisher. I was a you know. Fifty sixty percent of the offense and we're playing on grass. I was probably twenty percent of the offense and so but it was all about him. Trying to protect my exposure at that time. Let me ask you about the Super Bowl winning season because you had the opportunity to be part of an individual performance of excellence and then go back and with the forty niners. Be Part of a team performance of excellence as well. What was the catalyst for that team? Winning that Super Bowl. We had a temperate arrogance. You know I mean you know you think about that. That team that whose whose team on both sides of the ball All Pros on both sides hall of famers and we just had a an arrogance that we knew were very confident in what we were doing. We believed in everything you know whether it was George Seaford on as Defensive Coordinator Bill Walsh on the offensive side of the ball Everybody took full responsibility of their respective jobs. And so we were cohesive group and things work the one loss we had was at home against Pittsburgh and which we shouldn't a loss but it was just one of those things But the irony of that super bowl year going fifteen won that year. Is that here? I am my first ever super bowl. And I'm thinking it's Kinda like the Olympic Games everybody's pumped up and excited and our team had this calmness. It was here. It was eerie to me as a as a member. I remember going into halftime and the confidence was so high that we knew we were GonNa win the game and we did go out. You know we play. What Thirty Eight Sixteen. Three nineteen to score the game. And then here. I am post game waiting for this celebration and we're GonNa have parties and all that we wanna I What it was the second Super Bowl it's at Stanford so we're basically a home game and we did nothing as a team. Everybody went home or they went and had their own private parties. But we didn't have a team celebration and I had my family and everyone in it was kind of a a post victory. Let down because I didn't know what to expect but I definitely expected be a little bit more pomp and circumstance but You know we did celebrate months later but I remember a particular night highest moment. It wasn't as high as I thought it would have been. You certainly overwhelmed. The Miami Dolphins who came in with a lot of hype themselves. You're absolutely right about that. We only have a couple minutes left and I quickly want to get a reaction to a quote from you. You said it's a different race when you're chasing someone then when you're being chased right right well when someone in most of my competitive career most people are chasing me and it was rare that I ever had to chase someone else. Maybe the second part of my career. I left a forty nine. She went back to running when I wasn't as dominant or as good as I used to be. So when you chasing someone. You're you're running their race. You're not running your race because perfectly you're looking and feeling and trying to gauge where you are and so you're not as composed you're not as in control when someone is chasing you. You know that for instance. I was a front runner so all I felt I got out in front. I put a lot of pressure and everyone else chasing me and they could not run as relaxed as I could when I was out in front of it was a sense of freedom and all I had to do is continue to stay focused and therese will come to me. I didn't have to press because I was already out in front. Just established my myself early and relax and do what I do in practice. Rinaldo thank you very much for your time your insights as well. It was fun for me as a sportscaster to be able to watch you not only in track and field but also in your years with the San Francisco Forty niners and also how insightful you are about your comments about competing and your family as well thank you very much.

Byline longtime NFL reporter who covers football for ESPN was a sports illustrated senior writer for more than a decade and he has written a definitive book about iconic NFL linebacker. Junior CEO. It's called junior sale the life and death of a football icon. And as many of you know say Al committed suicide in two thousand twelve at the age of forty three and it was just two years after ending a twenty year career that earned him induction into the NFL Hall of fame in his death sent shockwaves throughout the National Football League and studies have concluded that. Say Al suffered from Cte type of brain damage associated with other player deaths. Jim a youtube were very good friends. Tell me about the first time you met him. I was nineteen ninety six. I had I was working Sandiego Union and I've been assigned to cover the chargers and it was the off season. I walked into the locker room. And they're only two players breath and there was junior and another guy and so he's telling me from a distance call me over and when it walked over you know. He introduced himself if I wouldn't know who he was which was interesting to me and then You know we talked for a little while and he said Hey. If you ever need anything call take my number and you know. I thought I was being pranked at that point and that if I ever called it I get domino's pizza or something but you know a couple of weeks later. I called her. That was something that happened just to see if it was legit and I got his voicemail shortly after he called me back so I knew at that point that if he was a genuine guy and and you know the relationship just bill from there he was not a guy who would who would betray team and give you inside information but in terms of understanding the culture of the locker room the culture of the NFL What a player. A veteran player go through in terms of preparing themselves or dealing with certain issues you know. He was invaluable to me. And when when I say that I wouldn't be in a position today without his help. Purply because you know. He taught me a lot of lessons in terms of how to cover a beat how to develop relationships. Those sorts of things that were critical. You know and helping me get to. I am from having watched him for so many years and now doing this book were you ever able to get to the essence of his love for the game. Wow I think with junior. You you always. You had that from the beginning and I think that's one of the things that aren't in so much respect for You know all of the players that he played with and played against you know. It was no coincidence that when he went to Miami when he went to New England right away he was elected team. Captain he just had a passion for the game. And if it was interesting to me and doing the book talking to Derrick Brooks and Derek was telling me about the first time he went to the pro bowl and one of the things he really wanted to do pick genius brain because at that time junior was the gold standard at inside linebacker and Derek was one of the up and comers and so garrick expired to get to where Gina was and so he said they get to the pro bowl. He's thinking you can pick his mind on strategy and preparation all these things and much of the conversation on Juniors. Dan was about respecting the game and about bringing the young players along and helping them make the game better than what it was when they they arrived. And IT KINDA. You know it shocked. They're a little bit because you know here. He wanted to talk football. And Junior wanted to talk. Respect you know and honoring the game and those sorts of things so his passion for the game in this respect for the game was was real new. Every time I talked to him about this game Jim one of the things I've found over the years of interviewing athletes no matter what the sport is. It's you really need to go back and look at their upbringing and were they grew up and everything that really helped fashion their personalities and their driving life to some degree and in the case of junior say ow he came out of a disadvantage neighborhood in oceanside. California tell me a little bit about his early life and how that affected what he ultimately became tall. There's no question. He was identified by family of the very young age as having special athletic gifts and typically in the pollination community. What happens is that the kids will work and contribute to you. Know the family finances well with junior. His father didn't make him work. You know whenever their blades or others would ask. Why isn't quite as me at a job? His father would say let him play because they knew that he had the special abilities. And again you know potentially the ability to let the family out of poverty and so you know with that came great responsibility and at a very young age. Junior knew that a lot was expected of him and that the family you know he was sort of the Chosen One. If you also she would get you know. When he was young he would throw these temper tantrums. Whenever his teams didn't win he would get him. Oh small sometimes he would cry and it would embarrass the family and what time the pfister asking. Why do you do this? Why why are you act like this and he would always say? I have to be better than made you know. Meaning that that they lost. It was his fault not anyone else's because he was the guy who was always supposed to carry the team and I think part of that with him feeling again that that responsibility it's not burden of being chosen one. Yeah from his family That Israel family to his football family almost in a sense. There's that that correlation and I'm just wondering now that we know the entire life story of junior say ow and we look back. I wonder if the pressure of life and having to be able to take care of others and added to his addiction for alcohol and also his gambling addiction as well. You know I can't draw a straight line between the two. There's no question that it would be a burden on him at times even talked about it late in his life with his sisters. You know about You know people always wanting from him and there was a story in the book about when he was being inducted into the ring of honor and one of the things that day which is really heartbreaking. Is that they go back to. Its restaurant after the after the ceremony. And he's standing up on the second level and looking down and talking to the restaurant manager and he's just you know upset that he here it is again. It's supposed to be my day. I'm supposed to be honored and yet I'm throwing my own party. I'm for my own party and you know those sorts of things. We're not lost on him. I also thought that so much was expected of him that he that he could not fulfil everybody's desires and that's not an easy thing to do for anybody but I would think even more so for the pro athlete Am I right on that track? Well I think some of them but the one thing with junior. What's he always seemed to handle it? So well and I remember Piece Tina Samoa. Another player from the palm. These community who grew up in the same areas junior and pizza told me when he was done playing in the NFL that he chose not to move back to oceanside vista because he knew that there would be so many family members tugging him wanting things then that he just couldn't handle that and he said he always marveled at junior junior was able to home and community where he grew up and deal with all of those. Those desires that others hands so Genuinely unique guy and that he was able to handle all those things but at the same time there's no question that it that a war on him at the end tell me a little bit about his track as a football player from when he was a kid playing the game up until he made it to the NFL He was always the best player on the field from every level You know he started out in high school. He was playing quarterback actually and safety and late in high school career actually senior year in college. A new coach decided to move him to a wide receiver and linebacker. Junior at that time. Didn't want to make the switch because his idol. It's kind of you know who played a Colorado. Junior wanted to follow on south. So that's GonNa be a quarterback you know If he was on offense thing and ultimately the coast persuaded him to accept that it was the best. Move for the team in the best. Move FOR JANUARY. So he did it and he was so outstanding that that was the year the parade all America team actually created an athlete spot. You know For A guy who didn't play position per se because union was so talented that that the Parade magazine editor. So they couldn't leave him off that team so he was actually named Annapolis that year don't onto and he can't play its first year because that's the first year prop forty eight you know the MTA legislation that required a qualifying entrance exam score and junior fell ten points shorts. They couldn't play as a freshman and his second year. You know he was behind everybody else because he couldn't practice with team couldn't train with the team his first year and therefore he wasn't comfortable and familiar with this game and UFC return. I think four top six linebackers and I'm not faking and so for junior. His first year on the field was robbed but in between just sophomore year and junior year. the coaches. They had an open door policy to go visit lands. Because John Ron at the coach of the rams at that time and John Bennett former great. Usc Coach and so a couple of the coaches went over to study tapes and they were watching the Minnesota Vikings Forty Nine playoff game and they noticed the Chris Doleman was basically playing. Thank position as junior with one exception. Chris was playing on the openside. And it's only responsibility was to take a couple of steps up the field and then go get the ball and USC's coaches decide to change their defense to tweak it so the junior could fill the same role and once they turn them loose on the open side and basically said Go. Get the ball He he was just outstanding. I think he finished that year with nineteen sack. Nineteen and a half sack wasn't all American and show to come out into the NFL. After that.

Byline we're talking about his book Junior say how the life and death of a football icon. Tell me a little bit about some of his mentors. Wow well when he came into the NFL to veteran linebacker. Gary Plummer and Billy Ray Smith and neither of them you know even approach juniors athletic talents. But they were veterans. Who were savvy so know? He tried to learn from them and from air. You know by a second year. He was going to the pro bowl so he was considered an elite player and shortly after that he developed France with you know became friends with the Star in the game. Elite the hall of fame caliber guys and one of his closest friends during that time. With with Ray Lewis. They would compete at everything. Our number Junior one year Signed a new contract and one of his first call with raid. Gotcha you know now. I make more than US. One way to deal with more juniors. That was one of the first calls. Ray made you know and so. They competed on and off the field to the point that there was one year. The charges were just awful and ended up finishing a believe one in fifteen in that season. And they're going nowhere late in the year and the team of going out to play Baltimore and Baltimore was the two thousand one. Baltimore I think was going Super Bowl that year and end up winning it in junior Decided that he wanted to show the fans and Baltimore who the best line background appeal was and that day. Baltimore won the game. Obviously but junior finished I think was sixteen tackles and was just dominant defense the player and rated and have the type of game that we normally associated right Louis but that was junior he loved to compete. You know either directly against her indirectly against the great of the game and he always wanted to be measured against those guys and you always wanted to come out on top when you think about the great games and I did a number of his games during the course of his career as well. I always think of him in terms of fast and hard meaning. He played the game hard and he played it fast as well He had no thought about his body. I'd see him throw himself into a middle of a pile or or go after somebody coming out of the backfield and everything but what were the moments that meant the most to him during the course of his career you know I. I asked him late in or late. Undischarged his career about some of the more memorable moment and There were certain the he chose. There was one against the raiders early on when the chargers We're trying to finally establish themselves as winners. And he came up with some key key. Play down the stretch against any talk about that one and there was another one where they were playing the Kansas City chiefs and again junior loved to play against the Marquee Guide. So that Marcus. Allen was playing for the chiefs at that time in markets with a friend of juniors. It's late in the game. The charts ten was the battle for I play You know about six games during the season and Kansas City's trying to rally to win the game and junior comes on the blitz and if you know market and he's one of the best blocking running backs of all the time it's like full back in college tremendous hitter tough guy and junior came in and and sort of rag doll them just blew thrown into the side got the fact and it was one of those moments. Where if you're if if you love the game and your student of the game you just go. Wow because those were two alpha male going against each other and genius took control so you know that was another one and the other one that will never forget it. He would never forget it the season opener in two thousand four. And they're playing the broncos on the road and the Broncos they've been dominating the chargers you know in recent history and and the Broncos go up early I think seventeen or something like that and the chargers rally down the stretch end up position to win it. They're ahead and John has the ball in his hands at the end of the game. And if we know John elway's one of the Great Fourth Quarter Comeback Guy and all of a sudden you rose to the sideline and goes to make a pass the ball. Let's Pan and junior grabs it in the air to preserve the victory and that set the stage for the charges to go on a march to the super bowl that year. So those are some of the Games you know. They stood out in terms of that. I remember watching yourself. Play one thing I always thought about. Junior was the fact that they're going to have to rip the uniform off of a much about Jerry Rice as well. So how hard was it for him to leave? First of all San Diego and go to another team and also leave the game completely any tough because that wasn't his choice and he was blindsided by it. You know They had a second year general manager and John Butler and I think second year mini seconds over the chargers general manager of Buffalo for years and John Butler made the decision that it was time for the team to get younger Because he felt that with veterans like Genius Sale Rodney Harrison. And these guys the young players like with Danny Thomas do drew brees and Sean Phillips. We're never going to step up and assume a leadership role so they decided to to trade union and it's done the minute hurt him and it was difficult for him At the end of his career it was sort of same thing you know he. Bill Belichick bringing back on a one year basis and many times. The LAST COUPLE OF YEARS. He would bring him back late in the season but his last year in. New England was really tough on them because when he came back he did not play much particularly down the stretch. And it you know. Genius say That just kills them. He wants to be on the field and he agent. Marvin Demos told me that when that season ended you know junior college career and he said the junior like the game. Let them down which was interesting to maybe you know. I said the Margaret after twenty years. You GotTa know at some point it's GonNa end. How can you feel the game? Let you down and Marvin analogy was look. You know that you know if you're you know the house is burning down. You know what the result is he goes but until it actually happens to you It's a different feeling. And so that was Kinda thing gender you know. He knew it was going to come to an end at some point. But until it actually happens you don't you can't really relate to what those feelings will be. I thought it was interesting. You said as much as we want one specific reason for him taking his life. I believe there were multiple reasons. What were they absolutely? I mean he was. I mean we know from CT Following the examination of his brain. He also looks starting with addiction to alcohol to gambling have financial problems. He was addicted to prescription to help him sleep All of these things. He was on the verge of going bankrupt again in part because of bad business decision. Some of which you may be able to tie to C. T. Because one of the things we know about the fact that you have impulse control issue You're there are you make a rational decisions. And Junior for instance bond into a chain restaurants. Fifteen a fifteen chain restaurant. And he guaranteed the leases. Which is something that you never do in business and its advisors all told him not to do it and yet he chose to do it anyway so that was striking to me because the junior. I knew princess when we opened this restaurant. He was so conservative with his money That he count every penny and that he would stay up during training camp one two three in the morning and have the receipts from that day's business back to his dorm room so he could go over them and then at the end of his life. He's doing fine guaranteeing leases on restaurant chains against the advice of his boxers. But it's just you know it didn't make sense and so I think for me. I didn't realize the depth of his problem particularly with with Cte until after his death. And that's one of quote the last conversation we ever had with two months before he died and I called him about the bounty scandal. And and I I was trying to understand the culture the NFL and this kind of stuff really goes on to the extent the league alleging and at the end of the conversation. I just said to him. It's sort of an aside. What do you think of people who say that? Roger Goodell's making the game soft but these Rural enhancements players safety. Things Junior study has to do it and I said why. And he said the people who say he's making the game worse. Don't have a father who wakes up in the morning can't remember his own name because of the game but can't remember kids names who can't font on a daily basis because of the game and he said if we don't do something you're going to have more players more great players who are in that situation and he said for us to know we need to do something and can't do something and don't do it is wrong and when he died that quote came ringing back to me because one of the things that. I found out later from a lot of people at that his memory was going. You know he would forget basic things. He would have appointments in. Forget about him he can't forget about it And I'll have to believe that that quote he was talking about. We only have about ninety seconds. Left you were back in Canton Ohio. When he was inducted in two thousand fifteen into the football hall of fame what will be his legacy as a great player. One of the greatest inside linebackers ever as bill check and Peyton Manning said to me he may have been the best eight gap blitzer in the history of the game for a man that size to be that quick or vice versa and to be able to make himself get those small through that whole were just surreal and the other thing here is that you know people always trimester players by fat and Ginger was one of those guys you couldn't. He didn't have a lot of facts. But he was so disruptive in the past game and the run game particularly on the interior because he can play blitz the against effectively so I think his legacy will be just one of the great Inside linebackers ever in the history of this game and in about thirty seconds you as a close friend of his. Jim Is there any one moment? Any one thing that is kind of ingrained in your mind when you think about junior that comes to mind justice generosity. I remember when he initially was going to retire. and the charges had ceremony him and that ninety invited some friends down to his restaurant and we were all sitting around the table and I remember saying to him or thank thank you because all the lessons he taught me help me get to where I am and then everybody at that table it was interesting. Have their own story about how he had helped them get to a certain point in their life and it was about. Seven or eight congested. Hear people talk about that. I'm not sure junior realize how many lives in touch but he touched an awful lot of your ride great player great man and also a great friendship that you had with him. Jim Thank you very much again. I want to recommend everybody junior. Say Al the life and death of a football icon. You've got to check this out. Thanks a lot Jim. Thank you having me Jim Trotter with US longtime NFL reporter who covers football for ESPN and was a sports illustrated senior writer for more than a decade.

This is America's Sports Talk. Show sports byline. Usa here's Ron Bar. Heath Donovan joins us on sports byline. He's an award-winning writer. And editor and he's also the author of coach. The biography abair Brian and the missing ring. How Bear Bryant in the nineteen sixty six Alabama Crimson tide were deny college. Football's most elusive prize and he has also produced a documentary film about the pioneer athletes shattered the color barrier at the University of Alabama. It's called three days at foster and the film is now available on Amazon. And also I tunes first of all Keith Tell me a little bit about the atmosphere in Alabama that this film represents Iran the way I look at it There was this contentious struggle for the meeting of Alabama in the nation's consciousness was it Personified the was it the bigotry. You personified by George Wallington Bull Connor and all the all the resistance to the civil rights movement or was the excellence of bear. Bryant football team that that was the struggle going on Obviously you had In in nineteen sixty three. You had all the trouble in Birmingham They greeted Martin Luther King you had in nineteen sixty five. You had the Selma March you had of course in the worst of all the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in September nineteen sixty three event those four little African American girls for bird at Church so against that backdrop The throughout a until the the mid sixties. Athletics remained a completely Black and white in Alabama as in across the south as well and what are film. Attacks is the collision of sports and Culture And how the pioneer athletes at the University of Alabama broke down those barriers. That you really. It's not a simple story. It really took place over a decade And how those those Baddeley's broke down those barriers And how they really helped Alabama people again to see beyond black and white. The title of the movie is three days at foster. What's the significance of Foster Auditorium Foster Auditorium in nineteen sixty three George Wallace and the Very scripted grandstanding move Fill FILL A fault campaign pledge to stand in the schoolhouse door at Foster Torian Which was the basketball arena? And also it's where students registered for classes to stand in the door to prevent African Americans I e African Americans from Attending University of Alabama. Well it was completely you know. Just grandstanding Move the eventually of course The National Guard was nationalized. And he was. He was forced to step aside. It was nothing but symbolism well thirty three months later something happens in that In that building the very same building that begins the evolution toward the integration of Alabama athletics. And what was that a young man from Huntsville Alabama bucker highschool named Danny Treadwell becomes the first black man to integrate the The State Basketball Tournament at the University of Alabama's Jim and throughout this by the way this is a week before the legendary Texas Western victory over all White Kentucky. Now that people remember of course in March of sixty six the first game the Butler high school was playing against all white Tuscaloosa high school and it He had an awful time The racial epithets. He had to deal with The the It was a ridiculous Situation for young man to have to deal with. But there's a there's a heart warming story into the story which I don't want to give away but it really wasn't important evolution et pourtant step in the evolution toward the ratio of athletics in Alabama and certainly nineteen sixty seven. This spring was a significant time period as well for Alabama University of Alabama and the football team. Pick up the story from there. Well of course in one thousand nine hundred sixty six. I wrote a book called the missing ring about the the the only take only time that a college football team has gone undefeated and untied After winning two consecutive national championships but to be denied the title. Well one of the reasons is because they had to compete against George Wallace and all the negativity of a civil rights movement Alabama despite the fact that Bryant was no racist Alabama was. The program was a captive of this. This This situation although clearly you could say they didn't move fast enough but But at that point Alabama still reflected the state of segregation. Because they were all like well. Inter- a young black man. Who just happened to be a freshman from Montgomery Alabama and dock rone and before Alabama was prepared to start recruiting black athletes dock Rone Winter Bryant and sat down the office with him and said I want to walk on your football team and bland did not chase him away he welcomed and because of that four other African American friends of his followed suit. And so you had five black men out walking onto the OWL White Alabama team in the spring of sixty seven. It was a landmark moment That really began to change Dock Rone in one of his one of his teammates. ended up playing spring game and while neither one of them survived to play in a far city gape It set the stage for what was going to happen next.
