Lakers clippers the teams al west utah golden state to a degree because they even though they're struggling at times still still golden state.

You got philly. You got boston milwaukee milwaukee. I always forget to mention milwaukee. Let's go yeah. I don't feel milwaukee low fat but trae young could be a free agent says will be traded is what went horse it. He said trade enforce a trade to trade can do that but i mean from tips days of chicago. I don't i don't remember no too far. That was four. I'll give you another one i. It's if they don't figure it out it could be interesting and i've been saying this the whole year you know. We had our midseason awards the other night nba countdown. I said my word was what else do you want me to. Do you want me to sing the national anthem to joking around about luka doncic being in dallas because he does everything for dallas. If it's not working out with kristaps porzingis. The can't find the right trae by tim. Hardaway junior third best player on that team but more cubans let that happen. I'm just saying. Duffy represents luka doncic bill duffy also represents rj barrett. There's there's a star that maybe doesn't feel like. Hey this organization is getting me to where. I wanna be and watching what the knicks is doing. What the knicks are doing. Well not gonna be big time for the nba if he would make them luka doncic new york city but with the new slit mark cuban. We'll let that get away though. Why would he let that get away. I i'm not saying he would. I'm just. I'm just saying sometimes if you're if you're in a place dallas and if you're not winning or you're barely making the playoffs and you're having to do everything and you see what they're building here in york you're seeing guys like worldwide west. Leon rose it could be an intriguing prospect. It's interesting because i think a lot of people felt like this is just the latest iteration right. You've got a player agent. You got worldwide west. You got tom tibia. Who is said to be too intense and it's turned out to be almost too good. It's really ended up. How many minutes. Randall is playing. How many guys have chafed underplaying all those minutes under typical right and he loves it. But i felt like that they would do good because those three individuals they basketball man. It's not that difficult when you know something..

Interview With RJ Koscielniak
"In the york. They were doing ads for detroit. They i never seen it before ads for a city like you know. Hey wanna open that cafe to open. Try it in detroit that hipster artisanal you know. Yeah totally got one of those places that clearly designed logos for a hipster businesses to make his logo for detroit. And and i think it's kind of interesting that this entrepreneur realizing of does a double movement that is almost seems at odds with each other. But i've been so seamlessly married. Which is marrying the entrepreneur preneurs sizing of everything with the new bohemian expectation for everything. So now we have this bohemian entrepreneurial thing going on that i think has one of the reasons why which florida seems outdated or antiquated is not because he wears ideas have disappeared but they become so normalized and he almost seems kind of acquaint like we just recently had that. Where speeds commercial. By donnie part. In that i think says it all ever seen it took working nine to five and they hired her to do a new version for squarespace. Called working five to nine and is basically about having to do your side-hustle after you finish working nine to five and you use squarespace and the commercial has people doing their side yoga website. Their side dance website their side blog. Decide you know podcasts. On squarespace and say right what has happened. We've gone from complaining about having to work nine to five and the boss on your back to now. Yeah i still have all that. But i also get to dream about you. Know this cool side-hustle. It's it's absolutely and i think that you know the the trick. Is that it that that kind of framing of the modern basically labor market but also this dislike klepto economic lake capitalist terrain. Right that we have to live in an on and around right. Is that that all the simple joys that you might have had from your life right. The the yoga right the painting You know the working out that all of those suddenly you're supposed to figure out how to modify and leverage rights. you're constantly trying to invent ways of taking what you actually care about like the actual building blocks of your identity of your life of what you you value and who you value and you're finding ways to put it in the marketplace and see what happens you From when i graduated high school. And and and i and i read. I was entering undergrad. I had this. You know everybody was talking about getting block right and that like oh you could get a blog. Maybe somebody would pay you for that block right that there. Was this like that. Somebody else could assign value to. And maybe that could be a revenue stream right the lake. Your i thinking about matt inglesias right. The way he was able to leverage for for to create his his blog than got picked up by fox and now he's basically an entrepreneur again. But the idea that is that that we've moved from well. I'm going to share some of my ideas to well. I'm gonna teach yoga from my three hundred square foot apartment to twenty five people. And then i won't have time for actually do yoga because then you start doing the self rationalization right like i really like yoga. So i'm still getting something out of it or i really like paintings. I'm still getting something out of it even though what you've done is you've essentially surrendered the like gentle like like honesty of something that you care about to a marketplace. That may or may not care that you've done that and i don't have any grand illusion so i like i. I'm not trying to say that. There's some sort of inherent value in like crafts. But i think what ends up happening is that we are never thinking about how we're building ourselves. We're thinking about how we're trying to survive. Yeah right yeah definitely hurts our relationships right we have an inability then to have those kinds of i mean i'm not trying to get to pop side here but thinking about like how then do you create a collective where everyone is. Potentially your client right is everyone is potentially your customer like. How do you get out of of that. That head space right. How do you get outside of the fancy word for for how you know how marxist talk about this as interpolations Like you've adopted the ideology to the degree where you don't know that there's an outside right. It's like the fish swimming in water doesn't know they're in water right here. World of blue. There's no blue. So so how do you then get. People encouraged people to think about that. That sort of process ideology of whose agenda. They're actually following. And how do you do it. In a way that's constructive and productive right not not like toxic and shouting people's faces right. How do you put. How do you develop an argument for the library. How do you develop an argument for public institutions. How do you develop an argument for paving roads when everybody constantly views everything outside their door as the potential for a new client new customer a new market for their their skills their talents their hobbies and their

The case for Baylor at No. 1 over Gonzaga
"The only respectful way to begin. This episode is by recognizing that scott drew baylor bears formerly known. As bill henderson's baylor bears improved a seventeen on the season tuesday night with an eighty-three sixty nine victory at texas. They outscored the longhorns. By seven in the first half they outscored the longhorns. By seven in the second half as a result baylor otherwise known as terry eagles alma mater is now seventeen and fifteen. Double digit wins. The bears are number one at kim palm. Their number one in the net. they are awesome undeniably. Norlander your turn to talk about baylor. Are you going to spend the next few minutes showing proper respect for the first lady of baylor basketball or are you going to once again disrespect. Kelly drew got drew. Plus mackenzie payton brody. Not to mention homer and janet price and tara dana and her husband. Casey bryson anna isaiah caleb. In luke plus drew barrymore drew carey. Drew brees drew bledsoe. Dr drew drew. Gooden andrew mcintyre how are you gonna handle this moment. bryce doesn't care does care. He'd bryce doesn't care. I talk to about it. He doesn't care. How are you going to atone for the fact that you still have a number one. I mean. I think it's disrespectful at this point. Daily top twenty five and one. After what i saw last night. I got baylor number one. But you don't and you disrespect the entire through family. And every drew. She has to drew mcgarry as well. You're disrespecting them all you've got number two. I think you're the one who needs to explain himself. I actually can't explain myself. And i do get asked this every day. I saw strong joe last night trying to make the case that baylor should be number one and i let it be clear. I won't argue with anybody that says baylor should be number. One baylor at this moment has a better resume than gonzaga. Got six quarter on lindsay. Does eggs only have five. Baylor is got the best adjusted efficiency margin in the country and one of the best of all time at this point. If you wanna if you wanna put baylor number one it is fine with me. It's just. I think we've talked about this. Before i made a rule a longtime ago i will not drop number one team unless it loses the only time i made an exception i went and looked it. Up is two seasons ago. Kansas was number one in the top twenty five and one to open the season. Kentucky might have been to. Duke was in the top five somewhere and do zion williamson cameras and remember the other one started with our allies and it was. It was whatever it doesn't matter. It doesn't rj barrett and so they went out and they just throttled kentucky on opening night at bankers life. And i just. I was even conflicted. Then because keynes's is just one and it was one zero and number one and i was like i don't feel silly not to have that duke team. That just did that to kentucky ranked number one. So i made an exception to the rule. Then but i've been ranking college basketball teams for better or worse for like more than fifteen years now and i've only dropped a number one team without losing one time and that is the example.
Becoming A Mom To Teens
"About nineteen so a eighteen so you just became a mom to the teens in being in the fill that that you're in counseling and having experience with working with teens in in the past what's been the most challenging thing thus thus far raising a teenager actually you know the teen. That's living with us. I really honestly truly feel very blessed. I really feel like i lucked out. If i would have design the perfect child you know to enter into my life like it's really been a blessing for me. He's been fantastic. And i tried to mentally prepare for all of the blended family issues that i was aware of. Because you know i work in the same field as you hear the family struggles especially blended family struggles. You're not my mom. You can't tell me what to do when all of that sort of thing. So i was kind of mentally prepared for that sort of thing. Myspace should the one that sixteen looks with us us what i want prepared for. Was that this. Older daughter wouldn't have any interest in even meeting me. So that's been the most challenging thing dealing with that In balking with my friends who are had similar situations it's been it's been validating you know that also occurred with other people when that you know. Of course they all tell me well. She's the one that's missing out because you know you're flying in great everything else I wish that we had that opportunity. So i think there's probably a lot of other mom incident married into relationships that probably have seen similar struggles has that impacted Dad's relationship with with her. Yeah i mean it's disappointing for him. He wants her to meet me and he wants her to. You know at least talk with me and give me a chance. I guess in in how does rj rj sixteen year. Old has he. How does he deal with that. Because that's his sister in so he sounds like he's welcome. Do you guys have a pretty good relationship. How's that impacted him. He has a relationship with his sister he talks to. I don't know how often he talks to iraqi. Texts are probably more often. But i don't pry into any of the conversations you know. Ask too much. But
Michigan State's NCAAT chances kaput? Who winds up with No. 1 overall seed?
"On thursday night gonzaga beat san diego ninety sixty two so the top ring zags sixteen to no second ranked bears fifteen no deadly. Somebody asked me a question on twitter yesterday. So let me present it to you if zaka and baylor both inner selection sunday undefeated. Which team is the number. One overall seed in the ncaa tournament. I- address this exact thing in my power rankings. This week baylor's the number one overall seed. That's not going to be up for too much debate. I don't think baylor will have at that point. Accrued many more quad one wins and road wins tougher opponents in gonzaga. So i don't think it will be up for much debate and that's before you even get into the question of whether or not Those teams have not played in their league tournaments. I think you're right. The question was presented to me about the number one overall seed the instability tournament. And then about whether i would adjust the top twenty five and one and i will not adjust the top twenty five and one i if i will not drop gonzaga from number one unless it loses. And that's been one of my kinda rules since i've been doing this job. I don't punish number one teams unless they actually lose. The only time can remember. Doing it is win duke zairian cam and who was the other guy that played with them. Norlander see if you can remember this time that team duke zay on camera. tish yeah. He's from canada. Third third pick in the draft of first team. All american show trae jones. Trae jones was on that team. But it wasn't him jack white. It was not yet check why it was not the third pick. Javelin delory in the subsequent. Nba draft. His name was started with all our in the next letter was j. rj. They call him rj. Oh i think i've heard this guy You're gonna have to help me with the last name though. Rj bay. That's right that's right that's right. Yeah that was The yeah he was the other player on this. So that's the only time. I can remember dropping a number one team without the number one team. Losing just silly to have anybody other than duke number one after that performance against that opponent on that stage. So i've done it before. But i will not do it. In in this scenario to punish gonzaga without losing would be to punish them. Strictly on league affiliation. And i won't do that but that said you're exactly right. Both schools have five quadrant. One wins right now. But according to the net the current net rankings baylor has six more quad one opportunities in the regular season. Gonzaga has just one so baylor could end up and likely would end up with basically twice as many quad wins as gonzaga. So i agree with you on selection sunday. If both teams are undefeated baylor based on the resume would be number one overall seed regardless of whether the people and the top twenty five one or anything else actually reflects

"rj" Discussed on RJ Politics
"As the house was making these votes the halls of congress were absolutely full. Barely able to see the floor in some pictures. I saw of national guards men and women from the las vegas review journal. This is rj. Politics do rj politics. Political podcast of the las vegas review journal. I'm rj politics and government. Editor steve sibelius and politics reporter rory apple two and we are coming back to you. Another really really slow. Newsweek rory i would say you know just are not not a whole lot going on other than the historic second impeachment of a president. The first time in the history of the united states of america that that has ever happened. The house has impeached president. Donald trump for a second time. This time it's significantly different. Though it last time there was unified republican opposition. There were no republican votes in support. The senate was a brick wall that this impeachment hit and And it sizzled away like water on a hot grill This time around things are different. There were ten republicans who broke with their party to vote for impeachment in the house and among those was the number three person in house. Leadership representative liz cheney of the great state of wyoming who declared that. No president has violated his oath to the constitution the way donald trump has very tough language from somebody who is the daughter of very famous republican family vice president dick cheney under george w bush Who has ties going back. All the way to the ford administration has served as defense secretary and And served as probably one of the most consequential vice presidents in the entire history of the country and his daughter was the one in house leadership who Who called president trump out. There were some people call under the resigned as a result of Of of what she said but she finally said i'm not going anywhere and then in the senate there are people including the majority leader who have not said they would vote to convict because they have to sit as quote unquote impartial jury but have left open the possibility that they will vote to convict in the senate so this is very different impeachment than the last impeachment of president donald trump and and for my money. I don't think this would have happened. Had the events that took place the capital on june six not took place not only does that form the basis of the articles of the article single article of impeachment but in addition to that it also Basically showed the the trump philosophy where it inevitably leads when you have a president who is singularly focused on himself and looks at other people including his own vice. President is very loyal vice. Presidents served him for years only in terms of what he can do for you and not just what he can do for you but what he is doing for you at the present moment that you're actually talking and and so. I think a lot of people were shocked by that shocked by what they saw the capital shocked by the president's reaction to it and shocked by the fact that the president has e- in comments to reporters refuse to take even the smallest bit of responsibility for what happened and instead said it. Many people thought what he said was totally appropriate. I don't know who these many people are. Because i haven't heard anybody. Yes yes royal. Meaning people used every week for the last five years. Probably or no. I think it was. I think it was a very very different sort of seen Than the last one for a lot of reasons. I mean the pandemic made it so that it was less of a spectator affair kind of thing and i..
Here's what will determine whether Urban Meyer will succeed as Jaguars coach
"So rj breaking news here. It is a live radio show in anytime we have breaking news. We enjoy it especially when it's the news that just came out a short time ago. That urban meyer is the new head coach of the jacksonville. Jaguars so what you're saying is the podcasts. Are going to spend twenty five minutes speculate. And if he goes there or not aren't live okay. Except that i agree with you. I find this fascinating. Remember now i'm in ohio state graduate and obviously to some degree in urban meyer fan. I'm not a huge urban. Meyer fan to be honest with you because i don't love that every it seems like there's a a prima donna element to him aspect to him. The idea that okay. When i'm wanted you know it's like the girl who that always likes the guy chasing a right but once she said it was in. She's looking for that next guy to chase her. Because let's be honest if you're getting rewarded if you're getting flowers and candy. It's fine right the day to day grind isn't as fun and if you look at what the buckeyes of done sense. Urban meyer laughed with coach day. You can make the case. It's superior though they haven't won a national title yet that you know is your two year period. You could make the case that urban meyer did better. I don't know but i mean so. Now the question is well how much urban meyer is recruiting. Lay the groundwork. And all that. And i think that's true no doubt about it but in the nfl. You don't recruit. I mean you could say you do to some degree with free agency but it feels like to me. One of the reason college coaches don't do well in the nfl isn't because they're so overmatched that it's not that the xs and os are so beyond them. I have no doubt urban meyer's ability offensively especially with his scheme with his coaching. Ability is going to be fine if not extraordinary but it feels like that to be a great college coach. At least half of it is recruiting. And you're taking that great attribute urban meyer highs in making a nonfactor.
Green Bay predictions: NFC divisional playoff vs. Los Angeles
"It we've been talking about. The announcement. Made sean mcvay announcing jared goff will be the starting quarterback this weekend for the green bay packers or four. The la rams against the green bay packers in green bay. Where right now. The packers on pregame.com. Six and a half point favorites. It's important to remember and it's obvious green. Bay's the number one see green bay. Is the one team the gutter by so the question is how to buy teams do in the playoffs. So if we look back and say okay. Let's look at the modern era. As i call two thousand twelve and beyond and that's because it's the first year four year after the new agreement that changed a practicing and all that things is. This really did change after that. And from twelve on teams off a by or with the by the playoffs who are not favored by a touchdown or more nine and five against the spread so a wonderful. Ats record for reasonably priced by team. The number one or in the past and the number two seed now the next game. We're going to cover and we're going to finish up. The rams is going to be kansas city. Who's the other by team. They're in a different category spread wise and it's different results in that game now. Why do i like green bay. And it is against the sharks. We talked about the sharps. Like the ramps and remember they like the rams plus seven and a half they like the rams a-plus avid now element mind is six and a half. So it's obviously. I don't have to go head to head with the sharps as much as i'm getting a slightly better number and i still disagreeing with them. Though in another reason is i think the rams are little bit overrated on. Defense doesn't mean i don't think they have a good defense. I think they have a top five defense. But i think this price is telling us because we know the offense is and all that good and we know. Jerry gov is playing all that well all the doubts about golf and mcveigh's questioned that's all given how they still the sharp side. It's a defensive matter or it's an anti packers. That's the only reason you could the rams you love their defense or you don't like the pack which it can't be about the rams offense it just can't be so even though you could make the case. Oh the rams can run. The ball aggressively in green bay struggled against that last year. Okay maybe but boy if you're one dimensional. That's tough and the reason. Though i think the rams d might be a little overrated is because if you look at their strength of opposition and we're talking about the opposing offenses now. There's been numerous times throughout the year that they didn't play the best quarterback that that team had throughout the year. So let's use the perfect example. Arizona cardinals were the seventeenth. Best offense in football show right about average so the rams playing that offense their defense against that offense. It looks like okay. The rams dominated an average offense. That's a good thing except the quarterback. Wasn't the normal starting quarterback for the car knows. It wasn't collor murray. It was a backup
Embiid, Simmons extend dominance of Knicks as Sixers roll
"The seventy Sixers coasted to a one oh nine eighty nine something of the nexus Jo Ellen beat had twenty seven points and ten rebounds Ben Simmons had fifteen points nine boards and six assists while also leading the defensive effort that forced New York's RJ Barrett into a two for fifteen shooting performance at one point our I will try to pass the ball so much movement but it's good to see you know guys are willing to you know really turned up and these instruments have never dropped a game at MSG and the Sixers have won their last thirteen meetings with the Knicks overall to buy a terraces have curry each scored seventeen is Philadelphia proved to to Julius Randle scored twenty five points and Alec Burks added twenty two for the Knicks who are now open to under new coach Tom Thibodeau I'm the ferry
Alabama, Notre Dame matched in unique Rose Bowl
"Let's talk college football to me. This conclusion was more egregious than i thought it could possibly been. You might think. Rj would you mean. Did you not expect notre dame to get in. Well one thing. I heard was and jonas. I think you were the big on this. You said all wealth noting gets blown out. I don't know and it doesn't feel like there was any amount of margin was gonna cause notre dame not to make it in hindsight you feel like that. The way they looked in that game against clemson warranted them getting the forest spot. A yeah i mean i just think there was a lot of stock put into their previous win over clemson so why what best quarterback in college football. Yeah and so. That's why i wasn't surprised. Seeing that they got blown out and hammered like they did and still ended up. Getting
Giannis, Milwaukee Bucks reach $228M supermax extension

Point but the greek freak is staying with milwaukee for at least five more years yiannis antenna kubo had until yesterday to sign the bucks super. Max extension offer a love. The supermax extension sounds so cool. I want the supermax. I would lie. I would like to have some time on my radio. Career kicked open the bosses door and not just demanded a race but a super max extension. Yeah exactly never really panned out. It's radio after all Anyway if he turned down he could become a free agent after the upcoming year.

NBA releases shorter preseason schedule
"Also hard comprehending this new sports calendar. You're so used to your whole life, the normal, you know, just like the change of the seasons, depending on where you live or the holiday season's whatever is now we approach that as well. But You're so used to the sports calendar now where we're experiencing this new sports calendar and 2020 with the NHL starting up in, you know, mid January or whatever it's gonna be and all these different things that we had with all the different sports. It's just really hard to comprehend it and get a grasp on but nonetheless, the MBA. Has started up their preseason after just a short layoff with Lakers a few months ago being crowned NBA champion and I want to start with the New York Knicks. Because not only because they watched the preseason basketball game which I can't tell you the last time I actually really watch they pre season basketball game. But because finally They look like they have a team that plays with some purpose. Finally, they look like they have some direction Now. I'm not saying the next you're gonna win. Like I mean anyone 25 games in the 72 game season. Who knows how many actual wins? The Knicks will have the man? I went 20? I mean, they they don't have a lot of talent. I know that, but watching them you can tell immediately. With Tom Thibodeau taking over that they play hard at both ends of the floor. They play with purpose defensively, and it makes it different. It makes a difference When you're watching it, it makes it more enjoyable. And you could see it was a point early in the third quarter, where the Knicks had a sloppy possession. Offensively. I think it was Julius Randle surprise surprise, but they had a sloppy possession offensively and then came back on defense and completely missed. Their assignments or what was just completely botched Defensive sequence and Thibodeau was furious and nothing. You need to got a yellow players, but he called the time out immediately and let them know. Hey, this is unacceptable. And that is something that I mean, I can't remember the last time I actually saw that with some kind of legitimacy behind it. You've seen other coaches call time out and get mad. But there's really you know, the players gonna just have that, you know, Stair story. I look just staring into space with Thibodeau. You know they're listening. You know, these guys are buying it and playing hard here. And I think for the New York Knick fans That's all that they could ask for at this point in the rebuild. And it's just been so long since you had a team that actually played with some purpose. It was nice to see on top of that. Nice to also see what a first round pick should look like. With Obi Topping. Hey, it is amazing that over the top and fell to the New York Knicks be when you look at Frank Neil Akina. Kevin knocks RJ Barrett, who? By the way still can't shoot. I mean, RJ Barrett is a shooting guard. Who his strength is attacking the rim. Can't you free throws and has no outside shot? Other than that a great topic. But any way you look and Kevin Knox is a waste of space, Frank Nil Akina Kevin knocks RJ Barret. Finally, you see what a first round picks you look like with all the top, but I get it that he's an older rookie and more experienced coming out of dating and Maura MBA ready. Well, that's one of the reasons why I'm one of the next to draft him and you saw his skill set on full display. On night one. Now it's the preseason. I'm not saying the guy's gonna be a perennial All Star or the next Amauri Stottlemeyer. But with a lot of guys you can tell right away whether they belong in the MBA or not. You know, there's that learning her for some bet it takes a while to get acclimated. Some never do. And some most most of the good ones. You know right away that Hey, this kid's not afraid to be in this league is not intimidated by the league. He knows he belongs. He's playing like you belongs. And then goes on to have great success. And I think that's what the Knicks have in O B top in early on now how they're going to develop players around him. And how are they gonna best utilize his skill set? You know all those thing and fit in with the system and all those things they're still gonna be determined here. But you can tell that they have a player as opposed to. Like I said the last three first round picks where they don't even have a player. Maybe RJ Barry could be a decent role player, a decent bench player, but he's not the part that they thought it was gonna be at number three. Kevin Knox isn't even a player and frightening looking again. Borderline NBA player does somebody's things Maybe he could be a, you know, a decent role

Could be worse you know. I totally agree I. I've definitely benefited of being like more alone with my thoughts figuring things out. What have you been? Occupying your time with. Besides like. We even talk about that. So I have been kind of doing nothing for a longest time in the beginning I really took it as a vacation and did nothing just WORKED MYSELF RESTED PLAY VIDEO GAMES Nice the last couple maybe last month I started getting into 'cause I used to have a youtube channel and content creation, but I never really understood the technical side of it. Oh I've kind of taken it upon myself to learn and I've started. Content creating again and how I'm doing that is through. Twitch I've been streaming on twitch for the past month now. Yeah I saw that I saw that on I think facebook where you're sharing your your upcoming schedule I I am dabbling in twitch myself but I'm still a total new. I will try to help you out with every little bit knowledge that I have but my it's not much. Out On me then that's probably a lot more I. Mean you learn this is what I learned from Tiktok right? Because I was very late to the game rob you just learn so much just by doing it, right? Yes. Absolutely. Getting on the platform. Okay. So what do you do on twitch because I hiked you up in the Intro, we get to know your background you've do stunts and you're an actor, and it's all these amazing things. But like bring us up to speed of like what what, what makes you you and what what kind of stuff are you putting out there? Well, I'm I'm still kind of figuring it out but. I love video games and I play video games all the time. So I figured I might as well stream it, but I didn't want to just stream any game I wanted to like find a way to make the stream enjoyable. Okay. Streaming Games is one thing. The other thing that I'm doing is that I'm I only did once so far but I'm doing kind of what you're doing is bringing you know my friends to come into the stream and kind of talk about themselves you know to have platform for them to. Show what they're doing what's What is it What projects they're doing, what they're excited about and what? Past projects they've done. So I did one last week with Chris Gye at Rj Alex. Is a good friend of mine old friend. And he? He's an acquaintance like we work together a lot. You know when you're doing stunts with each other, you're constantly like seeing each other but only from one side of it. So when I got to bring him on I learned a lot from him talking to the chat. So because you're going deeper into who he is in his background and stuff or like his yeah. Inner thoughts. Exactly. So it's a lot of calls on song in the drink while we can. That's so good. Are you just talking or you playing games and talking and Boba so were talking for the first hour in we hop into a game it just so happened that he was a voice of a game. So we played the game that he was the voice on and it just happened to be a horror game and I don't do well with Horror Games no, I would hate that. I didn't like it. But I'm sure the audience then 'cause you're like actually having a genuine reaction. Is freaking out. Well Okay 'cause gaming is crazy because they I mean because of technology everything is so real. Now it's not like it's not like cartoony stuff. Oh, this way I don't want to even go there because I, I would legit get. Probably from that like. I couldn't sleep well night. I mean, I, love the audiences everything but oh yeah, exactly. But. It's just been. It's been great because. As you know my wife is pregnant so Yeah congratulations. Thank you. Yeah. It's our first kid. We weren't expecting to for it to happen.

What it Means to be "AI Ready" - with Matthew Mattina
"This is Daniel Magellan. You're listening to the and podcast. We speak this week on the topic of. Readiness. What is it look like to truly be ready as an enterprise if you're a consultant, you're selling into enterprises and you want to build a success wave. This client stands in what might need to be worked on or if you are an AI champion within an enterprise, you want to get an understanding of where do we stand how ready are we should be an awfully helpful episode our guest. This Week is Matthew Martina who's the head of The machine learning research lab, A. R. M. A. R. Ramsey multibillion dollar semiconductor and software development company wholly owned by Softbank Softbank One of the biggest venture funds in the world based out in. Japan, and Matthew speaks to us about his criteria and his way of thinking through with Ai Readiness looks like in an enterprise again, if you WANNA a checklist to list of features away to assess take view on your own company or that of your clients. I think at this episode should be awfully helpful. If you're just getting started with deploying a, we have a free guide called beginning with Ai. It's special guy for non technical professional. So if you do not have a technical background, but you still want to understand what is it realistically look like to deploy artificial intelligence were the key factors to understand for a adoption. If you're not the person writing code, you're more focused on the business strategy side. Of things then you'll WANNA download that free pdf brief it's an e. m. e. R. J. dot com slash B e g, and then the number one. So bg like beginning and then the number one that's RJ DOT COM slash bg one that pdf should give you some extra details to layer on top of some of the insights that Matthew provides for us here today. So further ado this is Matthew mcconaughey with arm on the and business podcast So I'll kind of dive in first here on this topic of Ai Readiness and ask you about what you consider to be sort of the core components, the core aspects of Iranian s within the enterprise obviously a lot of moving parts here what comes to mind for you? Yeah. That's a good question I think. One of the core questions is one that I think people sometimes miss with respect to a I is. Now there's the problem that you're trying to solve. Of course, understanding that from the get go is key in pretty much any scientific or engineering discipline, but then with Ai. Knowing how your machine learning or a model actually going to be deployed. So what is that model gonNA run on in the field as it can run on a some kind of a big server in a cloud data center somewhere with no terabytes of memory and an of GPS and processors, or is that model ultimately going to be deployed on some kind of you know very constrained embedded device say you know in a in a o not censor or mobile phone or a car and everything in between? So think what we sometimes see is that a model will be developed by a data scientist or or. application will be developed without a good understanding deployment and where that gets prickly as you've developed this model, it uses you know. Fifty gigabytes of memory and then Lo and behold actually want to deploy it on a constrained device that has you know two hundred and fifty six kilobytes of memory, and now you need to do some surgery. Got It. So readiness here you're talking about you know not only involving the model, but involving sort of what are we going to run it on DC? This is potentially part of the four thought process for companies obviously, not everybody's GonNa have devices. Out in the field, people have security cameras, La- run things on mobile phones you know in in cars or maybe heavy industry the have it on a boat somewhere maybe other folks are just GonNa have stuff up in the cloud but for you, it sounds like maybe that thought process should happen as we're coming up with ideas not sort of after we've developed a great model idea that those have to be married to hardware sort of at the brainstorm phases kind of what you're getting at. That's exactly right as part of the upfront? Planning. Stage of enterprise preparing for a readiness. Yes. Some consideration for. What devices is this actually gonna run on and what are the key characteristics of those devices and and the interesting about it is that like I said, you can build models you know and build ai applications that you know recognize faces and use lots and lots of memory or they can have models at recognize faces and use very little memory. And making that trade off and understanding that that trade off will need to be made between accuracy and memory upfront will save people pain down

"When people were yelling at the mayor or the now former mayor pro tem Michelle theory comments that you made and gather some signatures to recall. Both of those officials that I just mentioned are facing recalls routes. You could have gathered signatures out there. Apparently he's organizers did not do that. And and look. It's very difficult to do a recall. Even in the best times I think with less than forty five days left now. I don't think there's any chance that this recalls going forward at all. Yeah I. Mean we were talking off air about? The irony of zero meaning that even the organizer who put this together as a former poker player and everything you know He. You have to have voted in her election in order to sign this and we had looked at his records, and he had not only in the sort of the larger general elections had voted and stuff so that. Yeah, I mean it's definitely appears to be dead, mean we? We commented before that it was dead, but again I agree with you. I actually saw it on I think you yesterday sharing out chain Johnson story on that and being like I was actually very surprised, and I smashed the link button as soon as I possibly could to read about that because it was. I mean you gotTa Get One? You gotta get like five hundred I. Mean there are other efforts going on here and across the country like I sat in on a press. Call earlier this week on a number of you. The struggles that various states are going through to get something on the ballot. Basically I think six six states including Nevada are trying to get you know citizen. Committees on the ballot to redraw the boundaries for congressional legislative seats. You know we've talked about that in the past. There's an effort here. led by a group that's by the local women as seems like each state. He was actually had by the local League of women. Voters are they're? They're really big on this issue. and you know these states North Dakota whatever were saying actually we've got. Got Twenty thousand out of the twenty five thousand that we need so some of them are doing pretty good can sit all things considered, but certainly more than one more than nothing, and so some are getting thousands and thousands, but you requires quite a lot. As he said best at times, it's difficult to reach that number and then to get them all verified in the way that's required and. Then go from there. Then you actually have to actually have the the election and so so. It seemed at the time a little far fetched. It was you know we were kind of surprised? She kind of came out of nowhere and we didn't. We didn't immediately know who was behind it. And then we did, and then we were thinking Oh okay, this is kind of makes a little bit more sense, but the it it. It seems like this was not going to come together. And as we said before I would be very very surprised. Given the current climate, if any of the various recall efforts that we find ourselves ahead and here in Las Vegas and Nevada's as a whole. If any of them make it through. Absolutely, I mean the the recalled the potential recall of the Governor Governor. Steve says the lack which petition was circulated in various protests and whatnot It fell well short. It fell well short, but they did get thousands of signatures you know. It's not as if you know. The some people are saying well Maybe if they got no signatures that means everybody loves the mayor. No I. Don't think that's what it means at all. I think it's an issue of organizing and actually going and circulating, getting those petitions to circulate getting those Those signatures an end with recall it's it's a double edged sword because unlike a regular petition. You know you stand out. You want to amend the constitution to allow lottery for example that would be one example. Example you stand out in front of Vons or in front of the DMV and you ask people. Are you registered voter? Do you WANNA lottery in Nevada? You can sign our petition and you get a lot of people aren't registered voters who don't live at the address. They say they live. Who something like that? So it's a crapshoot a recall you know exactly who is registered who is eligible to sign your petition because you have the list of the people who voted in that particular election? So you know all of the? People. Who voted in the election? So you know the the exact individuals to on their door, on the other hand It's it's Operating within that small universe, you've gotTA convince people to change their mind on their vote, and to basically say yeah. You know what we were wrong about her we want to. We want to change our vote and undo the election, so it's tough. It's a tough thing and and I I don't think door to door petition. Circulating is going to work in Asia Corona virus. It just doesn't seem like it's something that people are GonNa WanNa do so so it's it's not surprising I. Think I think you're right. I think the recall against the governor. I've heard that there are going to be renewed efforts to do that. I think that's going to be tall. Order I think the recall against A council woman Michelle theory former mayor pro tem shelf oreo probably got a lot of heat behind it. There's a lot of neighbors who are upset about. The changes proposed up at Floyd lamb state park that Michelle furious. Championing to to make those changes I think they're in faith There's probably a universe of people up there. That WANNA sign it but I. It's it's a tall order, even the best times, and so I don't think any of these are really going to be successful. Definitely I agree.

I'm going to try to demonize I'M GONNA? Make him feel worse for whatever remnants of this belief that I disagree with he still has. Or. I can say. The. Hardest Mile is at first mile to open up your mind that maybe your basic premises are wrong and the fact that you're shuffling this way. Is a heck of a statement that you're keeping an open mind, and that means that we're having a true dialogue. Let's keep it going. I gotTa Tell You when I've seen intractable people when someone's stuck in position when they take a half step away from that, there should be trumpets in the background. There should be a celebration. It's not what happens in the political system. In this country in the political debate would happens is. Everyone believes their position is God's. It's like dillon has a song with God on our side and saying we can win. You know is written in their sixties and it was like hey. We fought ww wine with God on our side. WW Two in the. Implication of the song was boy. God wasn't on any of the opponents side. And no one thinks God's on the opponent side right, and maybe it's not God. Maybe it's righteousness, the arc of justice in that rainbow over the you know you know it arcs towards justice wherever your Northstar is. Politically. You believe you're right about that. Or why would you have the position? And thus anyone who's less believer than you. Is Somehow flawed intrinsically character issue. The harshest response as you ever see politically. Are Conservatives against. Were they call? Beta concert or Cox is end are conservative, a maiden name only cover rhino you here and Republican in name Oh, and then you look on the other side and a guy like Bill Maher, who is certainly towards the laughed. When he disagrees with the Orthodoxy on the laughed all my gosh on twitter he gets. In general when one of your own isn't all the way in on everything is when people get the maddest. And that goes to show you. How how in the heck out of this group? That's on the other end of the spectrum, ever GONNA come. In your direction. Let's say you are right. Whatever the conversation is! HOW ARE THEY GONNA? Come in your direction. If the steps along the way, get more painful. Right, I mean you look at a? Let's give Ya credit. Recovery Program the twelve steps you know I I've watched them why PD Blue I've seen SIPOWICZ I've watched a lot of shows. I don't I. Haven't read books on I. Don't know deeply, but I do know there's a huge deal about that first admission that standing up insane. Here's my name. I'm an alcoholic and the idea that that's embrace that you got. To me when someone disagrees with you when they take a half step in your direction. Saleh -brate means a conversations working. And, if you're moving in a direction. And the other parties hitting you harder as you step towards them. I don't think most people keep going in that direction. And a lot of people will say well RJ I'll tell you why. We do that. Because life, itself is at stake. If this was a matter. That wasn't as important. Yeah, we could accommodate. The slope either people aren't getting into ignorant. But no life, there's been enough debt. Life's at stake. And in a way that makes you start to say But that is one hundred eighty degrees wrong. And the reason is simple. The higher the stakes. The more you gotta do whatever it takes to make progress. You. See what I'm saying. The idea of you and I are fighting over. A heads up cargo. You and Mackenzie from pregame.com. Research are playing a heads up. Card Game Thousand Bucks Ray take over a couple of weeks. You guys I mean thousand bucks its money. I mean just shrug I now. It's real money, but for you. It's no big deal and you know what makes a ton of sense. You're going to be like throwing chips. You having because what because the stakes aren't high. If you were playing for a million dollars. It'd be totally different Zachary. Because then the money would be what mattered now. It's the bragging rights matter. It's winning the debate and in a way. The politicians even true believers are usually the ones that get a lot of heat. Because Obama disappointed a lot of the laughed because the theory was, he didn't do enough. In. The point of this is this when the stakes are as high as life in debt. And it's on both sides of the abortion argument for the right is they consider to be about life and death, and obviously this debate with social justice and the police and violence, life and debt. The idea that no politician ever effective ever makes the true believers happy why because they have to compromise along the way? Why do they compromise. Because the stakes are so high. So to close on this. If you really think about it. Closure is unless. You're driving. And say! I want to think I'm at on this political discussion with. The cops. Minorities all that. And think where my at and wears an opponent of mine, it might be president. Trump might be whomever I. think of you think he's. You're nemesis in this regard. And then say. How do we bridge this distance? And what I'm sure of? Is Hating the other ones all going to help that. You might say you can't negotiate with terrorists. Okay fine except you're going to be in this like there's been. Wars has been disagreements religious disagreements. That's gone on for hundreds of years. Just go to the Middle East take a look. All right so yeah, if you want to accept, it's going to be like that forever. But if you don't want to accept that, how do you get? A might be that person coming all the way to you. That might be what you think. Okay fine even that. How does it happen? And I would I know for sure you're not going to get it all at once. And you might say well. I can't accept death. That's is not well if you have to choose between. A certain number of deaths or half as many. Do you say no take. We'll take them all. And I get it. These are tough decisions. That's why protesters don't make decisions like this. It's the people at the top. It's the elected officials. But the tanner sat by the people on the Ground Mad I. And I'm not saying care about it any less in fact, I think if you really think about it. If you care about as much as you show, you would be more careful. About creating an environment that let's progress happen. Because it's easy to demonize I. DON'T CARE which I'm not talking about either side. It's easy to demonize. It's harder to say you know Sunday. You're not just flawed. You have your perspective. You have your experience. You haven't walked in my shoes. And I'm not saying you have to agree with them when you don't agree. I'm saying. The stakes are high enough. That trying to find a way to get closer. Doesn't matter who's moving to whom? Any of that should be supported, and it should be really your goal because the day that your opponents GonNa. Stand up and go. You know I've been wrong the whole time one hundred and twenty percent I want to apologize to you. That I've been so wrong. It's not gonNA happen..
"rj" Discussed on RJ Politics
"We have a number of local races district races on the state level. Stuff like that. Who also have sort of come into focus as we've just passed a filing deadline just as last week and so we wondered how about that. I know you had sort of a working list of some some some top races for people to look at. Oh yeah definitely we've got as you pointed out in a A story that we publish the RJ. You Know Congress is a very popular destination there. There there there there are At least a half dozen opponents for all Nevada's members of Congress Including the ones in safe seats such as Mark Amady and Dina Titus you'd think they would They would be safe from even challenges in your own party but no they are. They are definitely a getting drawing. A lot of A lot of people into that into those racist there are some lawmakers who escaped without an opponent. They're they're running unopposed. So that means they get automatically if they get a single vote in November. They're GONNA win But a couple of the races are shaping up We'll focus only on a primary right now because we've got plenty of time for the general after June. So let's just focus on the primary right now and one of the ones that I think is is fascinating is Senate district number seven Where you have to Incumbent members of the Assembly Ellen Spiegel in Richard Cutty oh Who are both Democrats? Were running but wait. There's more they are also running against a caucus endorsed Person Revert Alang. Who if that name sounds familiar to some of you was the chairwoman of the Nevada Democratic Party in the infamous twenty sixteen election where Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders Supporters You could not feel the love in the room that night because there was no love. She presided over that convention that had to have security called toward the end. Well she is now running as the caucus endorsed person in that Senate district This is the insert that David Parks is giving up only because of term limits. So you have three. Democrats all very prominent people Longtime Assembly members had a very famous neighbor. Lang running against Utah. That's going to be a really fascinating primary race to watch. Yeah in an interesting one because they really only have less than three months and we're going to have a story this week about the difficulties and even for for a lot of folks that really the lack of motivation to campaign during these times during the corona virus in aware. You know you can't knock on doors and you. Can't you know have endorsement meetings? Those are all being canceled. You can't you know have town halls you can't you know meet folks face to face your potential donors and stuff. I mean traditional. Campaigning has really been up ended in the time of crisis. And you have folks who are elected officials or who even serve their communities and other ways a lot of whom are just not campaigning. Because they they're so busy you know doing what do we what it is. Their job is to do and try to help people. Who are you know hunger here out of work I mean it? It's IT'S TRUE. It's going to be like a really unprecedented primary season two just because of the conditions but it's also a terribly important primary especially for Democrats who are looking to sort of coalesce around presidential campaign. Get somebody at the top of the ticket who can help you know people at the bottom of the ticket the way you know. The Republicans believe trump will You've got some scrappy. Republicans who are trying to random Talk a little bit about the anti black thing. That was an interesting one too. Yeah you know we always look for surprises on on on primary aisling day. The last day of filing we always look for the surprise and I think this one there really was. There really was a dirt of surprises. There wasn't very many I mean. Kevin Child the disgraced a former Clark County School district trustee of filed to run for university. Regent so that kind of a surprise But the real surprise I think was this. Assembly district nineteen primary now district nineteen covers a little bit in Las Vegas. A little bit Henderson. All the way out to mosquito. It's it's a big district geographically i. It's been represented for several sessions by Chris Edwards. Who's a WHO's a Republican in? He got a Republican Challenger in the primary at the very last minute and that is anti-black who You will probably remember from such hits as running for the chairmanship of the Republican Party against Michael McDonald Which was a tough race. Given the Michael Madonna was endorsed by somebody. You may have heard of called Donald Trump and so a that was a real surprise in. Anti-black is running against Chris Edwards from the right saying he is an insufficiently conservative Republican. Now I can tell you. I've known Chris Edwards for many years and in he is no liberal. That's for sure of but anti-black says she's better conservative than he is and in his running against him. That is GONNA be another fascinating one to watch. Because any blacks campaign against Michael McDonald while unsuccessful was a very spirited campaign. It wasn't a low profile thing. She didn't lose because she just put her name in the hat and never did anything to to to really Kinda win. She actually campaign pretty hard for that seat and and I think she's going to do the same in Assembly district. Nineteen at least. We're seeing that with these e mails of these black attack. If you will emails there long Edwards has his hands offending off that that primary challenge. Yeah it's fascinating. I think she is A. I have interviewed her before. And she is a very spirited one. I still probably always remember the quote that she gave me about. When I asked her about that endorsement that that MacDonald had I mean has it. It's pretty common knowledge that McDonald and and the president are actually friends. Like they they actually they really get along with each other. It's not just a political thing. And she and she basically told me. I remember McDonald's face when I told him this to both will stick with me forever but she told me look the president hates losers off. The president hates losers so if I win you know what's the what's the Bar. I'm not I'm not GONNA have any I'm not GONNA RUFFLE ANY PRESIDENTIAL. The president hate losers it boy. It's probably true it's probably true. Yeah I mean embraced her instantly if she won because you're right he does. Hey losers and and if somebody can't keep their own party well then that's too bad but he definitely on For Michael McDonald very very shortly. Even though as you pointed out you're absolutely right. They actually do have a real personal relationship. Like Michael McDonald has has been to the White House. He's spent time with Donald Trump. He's flown on Donald Trump's playing. I think at least the campaign plan. I don't know about Air Force One yet. If so he hasn't stolen me a pack of EMINEM's the presidential seal so I'm still waiting on that anyway. Yeah no you're absolutely right. That would've been an interesting turn of events that happened. Yeah and then the last thing we wanted to talk about something that you pointed out which was essentially that the turnover of the legislature. It stands to get a lot. I don't know I don't know how to put this less experienced. I guess is the the diplomatic way you talk about that a little bit? Yeah I like to call it the brain drain although I'm constantly criticized by by some Legislative wags who say really. Is it really a brain drain? It is it is because look when you go to Carson City and you get some experience under your belt the first session you're there. You're you're figuring out what's going on. Where the where where. Your office is where the bathroom is. You really don't know anything about legislative procedure. They quit you through a little class. A little course of orientation about how that goes. But you really still don't know much about what's going on in the legislative process and so by the time you're there you know your second session you get better Your third session. You get better. Finally when you have served as long as say for example Maggie Carlton who is a former senator. She's now the in the assembly and she's chairwoman of the ways and Means Committee. Look you couldn't get anything past Maggie Carlton if you if you wanted to. She's been there for so long. She is seen every trick But a lot of these these these folks are new and when they leave the somebody new comes in. You can't help but lose experience. We're looking at a grand total and this is. This is assuming that every incumbent gets reelected we're looking at a grand total of ninety eight years of experience will leaving legislative building thirty six years in the Senate in sixty two years In the assembly that we will that experience. We will not have a when when we come back. Now there's a couple of caveats for that and that is up in Carson City. A gentleman by the name of Pique. Ao Neo who has legislative experience running for his old seat? If he gets in he'll bring out experience there and state senator. I'm Cy Assemblywoman. Not yet a state senator. Pena Nieto is running for State Senate children ten years of experience to the Senate so perhaps it will only be as bad as eight years He gave she She gets elected to that Senate seat. But you're talking about some lawmakers David Parks has twenty two years of experience. One of the most experienced lawmakers up there Jon Hamm Brechin has twelve years Joyce woodhouse WHO's termed out both John Hammerton Joyce woodhouse termed out twelve years of experience. Each ought to them. There are some people who were only up their short time a couple of years like Marshall Washington and appointee in Greg Smith another appointee up in in sparks who only serve a short time. But you're still talking about a lot of experience that you're going to lose Which which is the consequence of term limits? We were warned when term limits past that this would happen in the permanent class of people who continually go up there I e the lobbyists Were going to have more power as a result of this brain drain that we're seeing in so I think that's probably there's something to that because those lobbyists who have been up there you offer their services and they say look. I've been up here a long time. I can help you get this. Bill passed you. Elia on this bill. And so there's a lot of wheeling and dealing goes on and that's easier with the new people than it is with the experienced people Like I said you know a Maggie. Carlton is not going to be susceptible to that kind of wheeling and dealing as much as somebody who's brand new WHO's never served in Carson city before and this legislature will very likely have to deal with the state that could certainly be in a state of crisis for all that we've talked about so far that's happening this year. That's going to take probably years to to sort of undo. So you KINDA I. It's it's really interesting if they really don't call a special session at all this year and not really as the first sort of time to take another very short because the the the periods are so short here. The time in session is so short. Here A very short quick crack at you know A budget and and various other things that you know the state's probably going to be really struggling with at that time. You're no you're absolutely right about that in. There's two things versus dealing with the with the crisis and I keep mentioning Maggie Carlton. I'm definitely a fan and I'm glad she's there because her experience and knowledge is going to be very necessary when it comes to dealing with a Start TO CLOUD OUR WAY OUT OF WHATEVER. Recession has caused by this pandemic But then also have on the other side of that. You have the issue of the redistricting. It's going to be coming up in twenty twenty one that they're going to have to deal with as well so that there's some experience is about that as well but One of the things about special sessions. You know we're always amazed they go up there in a couple of days. Have fashioned a bill to to get the raiders stadium built or to you know to to do some other very complex piece of legislation and the reason for that is we all know. They're working out these details before they go so when they go up there all they have to do is a rubber stamp. The proposal that pretty much. Everybody has been aware of an agreed to ahead of time. This time I don't think it's going to be that easy as I mentioned before. I honestly don't know what the state would do if they decided to call a special session and I know one won't be called until there is some vague inkling at least of what they're gonNa do but so far I it. It's going to be a mystery. I mean so far as I said you know we don't even understand the scope of the problem. We're calling experts. The Review Journal is reaching out to experts to say. Hey what's going on with all this and the experts now because they don't understand the scope of what the problem is and so coming up with solutions is going to be that much harder But it's not GONNA be easy. I can tell you that there will be paying felt in all sectors private sector government sector a hospitality every business. He is going to be hurting as a result of this including we should not forget these the nonprofits that do so much good work in the community win when hard times hit one of the first things people caught his charitable giving and those charitable charitable contributions. Don't come in really hurt those nonprofit sector so So it is a mass and it is gonNA take a lot to deal with that mass and so we need all the experience we can get in every government also state. Yeah it's going to be interesting to see all right well. I think that's probably enough for this week. We Are we are miles apart but we are still planning to do this thing. Every week there are still lots of news. A lot of news probably more news than even during caucus week at this point And so we'll still be here every Friday to never miss an episode of RJ politics.

"rj" Discussed on RJ Politics
"Of my colleagues as a precaution for the cove in Nineteen Pandemic Steve. Where are you right now? I am in my lovely Home Office in Henderson. Nevada partly cloudy Sky and everything is fine. I got a little dark oak. I'm good to go. Yeah I actually in my office in Summerlin looking out at the same and I have a vanilla coke and I'm ready to go. What are the odds? So we're GONNA start obviously with the unprecedented closures and actions taken here in Nevada Dudakovic. One thousand nine hundred but make sure you stick around because we're also going to get into some sort of non corona virus politics as well as they're still a presidential race that's going on and filings for state legislature for Congress for local races. And we'RE GONNA get into all that but I obviously this week especially we've seen really really unprecedented sort of action from the governor's office Gaming has essentially been shut down as we know it on. Essential businesses have been asked very strongly asked would say to close Sort of precautions being taken at grocery stores and healthcare facilities. And you know. There's they're sort of aid coming on the federal side to try and help with all these folks who are going to be out of work or sick or both But Steve I mean you've been here a lot longer than I have. I mean what is? It's been like to watch everything to happen this week. I'll tell you the first thing is that I was amazed by is that We have never seen casinos. Close legend happened after September eleven. That didn't happen in the great recession. It didn't happen during one October Shutting down casinos locking the doors is something that's unique. It's something that I personally have never seen before to be honest with you in so that I think is really jarring to a lot of longtime Las Vegas to see that happening And then CDs normally busy streets. You know a really empty He is Is is a very jarring thing for especially for people who've lived here a long time. It's just not something that happens. There's you know the strip is always there and so that that really I think is the number one thing as far as I can see this differ and you know it's particularly worry some here because I think most people who've lived here for any amount of time no how important tourism in the casinos are to the whole state. Really even if you're not in Las Vegas arena where the concentration of those businesses. Are you talk to me? You know we work on a story just really briefly about the legislature. Not yet calling a special session and you had talked about. Just how much of a big part of the state budget is tied into the taxes on gaming and we've seen our federal representatives in Congress really pushing hard to fellow members of Congress for some aid for tourism because it is it is such a big job creator and it's such a big source of income here in Nevada. Oh Yeah I mean if you look at the breakdown of the State Budget. I'm looking at a chart was prepared by the Wind Center for policy priorities right now. The General Fund for the State about the forty six point. Four of that is comprised of the state's portion of the sales tax in the gaming percentage fee. Which is a gaming tax? So that's nearly half the state budget you add in the The Modified Business Tax Aka the payroll tax Annette's fifteen point two percent of the of the state budget so that's more that's about sixty one percent of the entire budget in those things are going to be hit. Because when you close casinos you're obviously not bringing gaming revenue. Sales taxes are down a lot of those casinos have malls in answer retail facilities at bring in a lot of those Revenues your closing non essential business. You're losing sales tax out of that. And then when those businesses go to lay off people not only a drop in the in the payroll tax. But you see a concomitant increase in a demand for help on the on the unemployment insurance fund which in the recession the state had to actually borrow from the federal government in pay back with interest. Might I add alone from the federal government just to pay unemployment claims So Nevada was in a good position until this happened the wasn't but it wasn't it wasn't in dire straits it's in dire straits now. There's no question. Yeah I mean we're talking about you know the budgets and the politics have really. It's being felt just across the whole state in terms of healthcare in terms of education. I mean the schools were closed. We didn't mention that. That's seems like a a extremely unusual and obviously disparity with other states and municipalities across the across the country. Basically we're not the only one in this in this in this sort weird period of isolation. Either no we're not. We're not the only ones but I would point to a reason. There was a reason report from brookings that said and I quote among the nation's one hundred largest metro areas. Las Vegas is most exposed in other words most vulnerable to a corona virus induced recession of our closely by Orlando Florida the theme park capital of the country. And that's obviously because we have such a large concentration about a third of our an entire states jobs are in tourism and hospitality industries. And so anytime that. There is a a a nationwide recession disposal income. Goes Down War where you are essentially prohibited An discouraged from travelling. And even if you could travel. Now there's there's nowhere to travel to our casinos are shut down It's really It really shows how fragile the Nevada economy is and how Horley we have done in terms of efforts to diversify the economy. We said after nine eleven we would diversify the economy. We said after the recession. We were GONNA do that. We've made some strides some efforts to do that but it just hasn't happened and And we're very vulnerable to the to the to the economic consequences. I think more so than a lot of other states. Yeah definitely seems like it. That's something I think. Last week I did an interview with Congressman Horford. And he was he basically and then and last week. A lot of different things have happened in the last week. I mean this ings gotten a lot worse but even at that relatively early phase he was to say you know were preparing for post nine eleven like depths of the recession type measures already and it's gotten worse and and all indications are it's GonNa get even worse probably before it gets better. Yeah I agree. I think you're I think it will and end. I mean this is really an unprecedented crisis. Nevada's gone through recessions. Before did this is probably the most unprecedented thing since September eleventh when we You know Assad terrorist attack. We never thought would actually happen. This I think is the most unprecedented thing since then and there are businesses that are gonNA close in never real. Yeah I'm there's going to be economic consequences in the long term that we can't really foresee right now and and to be honest with you know we talk about having a special session. I honestly don't know lawmakers would do. Is They went to Carson city in in gavelled in a special session right now? I don't know where they would find the revenue to make up for what we've lost and a in obviously. I don't think they're gonNA do that because we don't even understand the scope of the problem right now but Win They do. That's going to be one of the key questions and I honestly don't know how that is going to be answered. I really don't know I think a lot of people are very very unsure right now. I mean even just walking around town and being at the grocery store you see all these empty shelves and everything I was talking to the Checker my local Albertson's and you know he was in New York during you know horrible the hurricanes that they had you know some years back. I can't remember what the name of the hurricane was. But you saying it wasn't like that then because we we were talking about folks just don't know when's IT GONNA end. How does it Kinda get? I think there's just so much uncertainty in you know this week. I think every day this week there's been a major announcement out of the governor's office pre I mean pretty much and so yeah I mean it's wild and it's wild to me that like politics still sort of like churning on as best as he can. I mean we still have a presidential campaign that's going on and we can talk a little bit about that you know. Some states did move back their primaries but others haven't and you know obviously on the Republican side trump's nominee. He's already got the amount of delegates needed in case that was ever in any doubt it should have been But you also see Joe Biden who I mean man. The last time we talked about the presidential race we were saying you know. Hey he might be in some trouble or oh he's he's coming back. He's now all but clinch this thing. I mean he's he is really performing well especially in those sort of S- ght-wing states that you're looking for a Democrats perform particularly well and you saw you know the Not Very seismic dropping of Tulsi Gabbard today so it really is. It's down to Biden Sanders. Sanders is essentially on a on a campaign suspension. Watch at this point. I mean there were some false reports in the last couple of days that he was dropping out he was asked about it and he's basically saying hey right now. I'm a senator. We're in a crisis. I'm not really you know talking about my campaign and everything whereas vitamin has been performing more or less like the nominee and I would say even sometimes with some of these online type chats and speeches. I'd say he's even performing like he's already won. The president's Amion they eased definitely trying to you know create some sort of contrast with you know a the response to corona virus. In what he'd be doing if he was the president right now yeah absolutely. You mentioned the our our tally of those swing states. It's about fifteen of those swing states on We were supposed to see on March seventeenth three of them. Vote but Ohio Up. Put it off. Florida and in Arizona went ahead by the one both of those so in the swing state sweepstakes which I have to say slowly Biden seven two four. I gave I gave I l Iowa to Bernie because he came in so close in the end in that contest So we're going to give him for. Biden is up seven to four in those swing states as I look at the rest of the map. we've got Pennsylvania which Biden will surely win And and Wisconsin in Georgia and then when Ohio eventually gets around to voting. We'll see what happens. There that is that is a A. I was sad that they both phone. I understood why but I was sad that it was fun because that is a critical state for Donald Trump in Joe Biden into in the November elections. So how they go is going to be a really interesting thing to see but But yeah the I mean the Garona buyers news is pushed the presidential campaign off the front pages but it's still going on and people are still paying attention to it and Joe Biden is still racking up delegates. He's about the probably in the neighborhood about eight hundred delegates shy from clinching. Nomination himself so So it seems clear at this point that he's going to be the nominee you're seeing sanders. Say something like wow. We're reassessing and that means of course we're trying to figure out how much money we have and how long we can keep this thing going and and I think the DNC is probably happy about that because they wanNA coalesce around a nominee and start to do the work of making sure that the sanders supporters don't leave. Don't go with the third party. Don't stay home on Election Day But still turn out For Joe Biden. Even though that wasn't the person that they wanted it initially. I think that that's going to be a lot of work between now on November to keep those folks in the whole. Yeah and and it is. It is truly just wild that it's only been what five six weeks Iowa and you know and New Hampshire. Where Biden was dead. I mean I've read obituary for his campaign once again not to name too many names but it's the opposite of the Pacific an edge just like it it it it is. It is truly a leg indication of sort of like you know if you have the stability if you have the money if you're able to you know squirrel away your finances well enough. He really dearly states while they matter of course they matter a ton you know those first two you know aren't necessarily the end all be all as we've talked about many many times. I wanted to get into the fact that you know. It's not just the presidential campaign..
"rj" Discussed on RJ Bell's Dream Preview
"Rj Bowel you can get this win subscribed dream preview and straight out of Vegas here though is last this week's analysis and I think it really shows you it's about forty seconds about focusing in on where you want your exposure. I believe this is the lease discuss. Big factor the week. I know people are talking about it but I think it's gigantic. I'll give you another bat. I like the raiders in the first half usually usually when homefield under such excitement like this. It's it's at the front of the game we see it in the NBA teams down to that third game. The crowd's going crazy. But you know what can happen if football you can get. Fatigued emotionally drained for that second. Half we've already bet the raiders lane three think it's more towards three and a half now in the first half and very prescient. I don't know if it was fatigue at the end if it was emotional fatigue but raiders came out strong up sixteen to three at halftime. And just not the same team at all in the second half where they've rj they got shut out in the second half and listen. We don't it's not like wordperfect on this. We thought that the giants would be better not in the first quarter but I feel like what you can do is get exposure to. Where are you want exposure? and to me I don't want ballot check at the beginning against him beginning of the game. I don't want ballot check after halftime. I think in this spot I don't I don't mind them otherwise especially on shore week right well. I think the house is in quarter four for sure right so you WANNA go with it. I like get. We'll put it in all right now. Usually those quarter lines come out one usually Saturday day before but this case Friday I good John McKenzie next game. The final on Saturday Texans at box. I guess this game is the one o'clock start right so early start. Actually this is the earliest one eastern star. Why are we doing this game last? It put it in put in rotation order they flip the Times on us on these three games. God Darn that found how all right still though it's still taxing still Tampa Tampa plus three at home. I think there's two main concerns turns in this game. One Winstons fractured hand. Fez how you feel about it. He just threw for four fifth out but still fracture. It's just tinny Wednesay fracture though I.

"No nonsense week. Thirteen addition Russian of the NFL dream preview with a wise guy. One on one Steve RJ. Bow Four and one last week getting to straight winning weeks key baby well fifty percent and like we said we're we actually the no nonsense part is recording about forty minutes before war. The faulk show at three Vegas time. So we're going to record the first half or so of it hopefully and then right after the show the second second half. That's the kind of dedication we've got so okay. We're starting with Sunday's games and then we're we're GonNa do a quick rundown of the Thursday games but that will be a separate file. I'll put that out on my twitter at RJ. In Vegas this and we'll put that out probably late Wednesday night but thinking of it. This won't even necessarily out. Well we'll see when it's out but if you're do not follow me on twitter and you missed it. Now's the time to follow. You won't miss it again because we do call audibles now and again during the the holiday weeks again trying to maximize what we provide to you guys while keeping in mind the realities of the holidays his his twitter handle is at RJ in Vegas so Sunday rotation order. Best bets at the end packers giants right now as you have the Super contest lines right not out yet. Oh okay that's interesting. Yeah because usually we're taking Wednesday night so no we can do. Let's make some assumptions based on the market and the lines should be out. What time do they typically come out right about Four o'clock okay. So by the time we're done would actually double back if there's any discrepancy like something. We thought the assumption was so market. Right now packer. Six and a half. Yeah like like the New York giants here. It's all about Green Bay being overrated green. Bay's eight and three. They've only outscored their opponents by sixteen points and their play. Frankly has gotten worse over the last five weeks. Green Bay has been outgained by over seventy yards and probably what's seven years per game or game. Rj and what is probably the most concerning Green Bay's last loss. How bad was it against San Francisco while in yardage it looks bad? Green Bay got out gained one hundred forty one yards but if you look at in terms of a yards per play green bay got out gained by four point seven yards per play in this game. How bad is that? It is the worst performance of any. NFL team for the year. Worse than the Miami Dolphins Week One against the Baltimore Ravens. So you're saying in a given game against the forty niners would the packers gain per play. You have two point eight. What's the League average league average? Five point six so exactly have correct. Yes so you literally are saying Aaron Rodgers double check it. Aaron in Rogers yes have Aaron Rodgers gained half as many yards per snap as the average. NFL team. Yes Okay and then give me the numbers on San Francisco San Francisco seven and a half yards per play so about two yards more than an average team per play. Now I'm in inch. I'm always interested in mechanics. How did you stack rank to figure out that? That was the worst. I we knew that previous Mackenzie Assisted Sistemi with this and we knew that the previous worst result had been that week one because it had been such an absolute destruction. Remember when Miami people are talking about them tanking against Baltimore. We'll we'll people were talking about. I was talking about mistakes. Were made Mackenzie. How did you figure it out? Well I've been using doing this. Great News spreadsheet that we have so really every game in east result. So what we're saying is you mark have been working on that spreadsheet you know under my direction action done a wonderful job it was provided the FAZ in fezzes response was Mackenzie. Look something up for me and all we had to do was go to one column and soar by something like that. It's all it's all teamwork it's all the how's it work in the reverse of learned in measurably from. Aw that's there's probably some truth to that. There's probably some truth to that. But that is one of the nice features and you know. We're not sure what we're going to do with this. Because it's it's not something it's almost like it's too powerful to let everyone have you might think I'm kidding but say it really is a hot thing we got going so we're gonNA figure a way for you guys to benefit from it but at minimum some of the content your- he you. Oh here from the boys should could benefit from it. That I mean really think about it. If we use yards per play as the metric the packers were beat. The you know the worst first of any team in the NFL this year that is no worthy but if someone countered and they said well one game isn't isn't square like it's like Oh let's find all the teams at one by thirty points or more and better than the next week. So how do you balance. And I'm not saying I agree with that because I do think ah I do. I would say this the packers losing badly or a team losing badly. If if somehow you woke up from a long slumber and team was losing badly the last week they lost badly. And that's all you know about the game is the final score four and you don't even know what year it is so you can't say well. I know ballot checks good or literally some indeterminate. Future time and all you got his last week score and they're saying for your you know you go to prison if you lose in this dystopia and future and you live in the clouds if you win that three games. What are you going to do? How would you handicap that so the only date I have is one week's worth of data exactly? Wow and I have no prior history. I've been on Mars for fifty years or if one hundred fifty who knows but it could be next year but likely not say it's at least ten years in the future now one other caveat. You're told that the market's efficiency is comparable to win you. Last were awake. I write the rules are comparable in the like and so I see a team lose by thirty plus points and this is an easy answer. Isn't it. Well you're automatically going to play the teams that got beat the worst I well well yes. E- straight up the questions. How many points adjustment do I make on the power rating do have power as well? I think I guess minus five of a team lost by thirty would be off the top of my head. What if that's the only data point I had but what I'm saying is it doesn't matter because what we're saying is the market is efficient? Thus how does the market tend to react act and maybe that's another way to ask it does. The market tend to overreact or under react to a team getting blown. Oh I got to know. Yeah I would say overreact to these extreme examples so the fact that you're making an extreme example with green bay I mean I think the fact that you quantified it as you did in yours for all that that's very interesting but aren't you doing. What the market typically does and and bat meaning it's a losing thing to do typically right I'd argue I'm not because I'm what what I'm saying is although the results on the scoreboard were horrific for Green Bay. These actual stats even worse than that. Okay but do you think generally when teams get crushed on the scoreboard the stats are like you know. Oh they were even I mean I I understand. It's a spectrum in both directions. You lose by thirty some your stats are pretty bad. Yeah so you'd probably lose by a two point seven yards per play four point seven right okay so I guess I'm not sure how to ask it is. You're doing doing what everyone else does. You're doing with the squares of the square does but you're saying because the stats were bad too. It's not square. Yes yes and also the history of Green Bay has been at the stats of. Frankly been bad since week. Four this is An isolated instance in the fact that they've been winning games means maybe the stats. Don't matter as as much to them. There's some teams that can win without good stats right. Yes and there's some teams though. I think that just have gotten fortunate. Over the course of a season I think Green Bay's the case being eight and three only being plus sixteen in their point differential. How did they get their record? They they've been fortunate. But obviously I think the pythagorean winds winds in baseball where one hundred sixty two games and even NBA Makes Sense. But wouldn't you say that when you lose a game by thirty some points. It's you're going to get a skewed result right even for the season at the good point that is similar to baseball game. Once you lose by eight runs does it really matter if you lose by sixteen or by ten right. Yeah but even then it's one out of one sixty two or one out of wherever point this season you are here. It's one out of eleven right. Yeah so the first is eight games of the year. Green Bay was plus fifty two points. Now that was pretty much on pace for their record. I'd have to say not that far behind if it is last three their minus thirty six now the question is you add them up. You say that's the most games and in general I defaulted as adding them up. I agree but is this trend. Line assigned teams getting worse. Now if it is then you're then I think that might be the handicap more than how bad they looked in the one game and if it's not representative meaning You know then you take those blowouts and maybe that's the way to look at this Theorem mm-hmm with the green is. Maybe it's somehow the I fourteen points because if you win a game by ten instead of one that's a a big difference to me but if you win a game by twenty nine instead of twenty so I just wonder if the I'm not even saying I liked the packers I've been down the whole year. It just feels a little too pat a little too robotic Arctic to say. This team got really bad last game so we WANNA play against them and oh by the way their staffs were really bad to omitting some teams get badly without bats that but at that point we just dismiss it. And what are we say. All garbage points SCHERF I think what's more significant about Green Bay is has literally every week and I don't have the exact numbers in front of me but according to football outsiders Green Bay's defense is now number twenty two. Rj It sure seems to me since week three every time live check their number. It's gotten worse on a week by week. Basis and Aaron Rodgers his rating. He was in the borderline top ten earlier in the year. He's down to sixteen so it seems like Rogers goes. It was down every week and the defense goes down seemingly every week now. I think that's a fair statement Twenty two is right for the defensive rating. Right now for Watson for greenback yes the packers. This is almost hard to imagine in the last three games. They've had less than two hundred yards of total offense twice to two out of three times less than two hundred yards so speaks to the idea. And that's what I'm trying to get at what what is the truth of. These is three games. Is it a sign of some drop off that we can't necessarily identify is it. Just random is is it. The fact is team wasn't very good to start with. I don't know I don't think any of them are particularly appealing right. If you WANNA back the pack I just tend to want to understand. Stand the why. Now I can't like it and I'm almost tempted to go with Green Bay here and here's why Brad actually gave us a lot of good notes votes for this. One of them was teams that lose by twenty one or more in a road favorites the next week. Fifty five seven thirty nine so that is fifty eight and a half percent and deep decent sample size so my thinking is when do we know that Rhode favorites do well. We know favorites. Do well off a by the rationale why they do well.

"Now back to RJ Bills Dream Review next game next stop panthers jags. I should say first fezzes some really good research and more just spotted it not the research with some of these accidental starters and how they're doing against the spread eleven. Rj Now who's on the list Jacksonville Minzhu Minzhu Pittsburgh Rudolph New York giants Daniel Jones New Orleans Bridgewater and Carolina Kyle Allen and I think there's some logic here in that we're we're leaving out the jets because there was a third string guy or specifically falk is third string. They haven't played a game without a third stringer playing most snaps since darnold had missed the prom and got mono and obviously dwayne hack INS Haskins hasn't even started of the game but what I find interesting is and really your numbers on these rookie or these accidental Saddam starters has really got me thinking about how good these quarterbacks are. It got me thinking about how to assess that. Here's what I know of all the quarterbacks that we look at forty. Two of 'em Kyle Alan is number. Eleven and stash is thirteen so let's look at the various platforms Allen is eleven and Qbr twenty-two PF and number for five at the High Q. Analytics plays in Men's shoe number twenty two QBR number thirteen PF and number eight at the High Q. So it's interesting the High Q.

"I think it's a good bashed offense in certain spots a really a good defense and the cowboys might be better than them and what I know is Tampa Bay. I don't think they're giving up on Bruce. Errands earns already thus I that lost last week the chip shot the delay game stuff if it does anything it motivates them this week and when his Winston problematic and and this is actually Sunday my on his bat everyone I or two people I trust to watch the game said Tampa was so scared of Winston Winston thrown an interception late that they got conservative in a way that even led to the field goal that it wasn't just that got stopped and say they won't call normal. NFL plays in that spot figuring hey we can make his fuel goal. Winston throws reception at anytime who knows but if you're plus ten and that's the market at least you can. It's very reasonable line to get there's some nine and a half out there not in half of the contest which is tough. That's why my second best of the week is a bonus. One is Tampa 'cause winston and Tampa's limitations. Don't really mean much a-plus Tan. They mean a lot tighter games thoughts. Yeah I like it. Rj Jay one more reason to like Tampa. Let me talk about Mike Evans. He's one of those guys those five guys. It's worth one and a half to the point spread non quarterbacks. It's six now. You forgot you. I added I oh I did you gotTA. Keep up with the FAZ. McEnroe says it's been up for him. Since five emmys pay more the cowboy boots cowboy hat wash around. I didn't mean to do that. One Guy who lost my train of thought Oh yes Mike Evans so so my terrible game week one only two catches twenty twenty eight yards and he had a really bad in illness so he had a case. I don't know if it was a stomach. Flu Or what it was but Awadhi the sharps were fading him the big time. In that game they got word of that and then he had to come back and play on Thursday right after the Sunday and he was on the injury report is still being ill. He played he didn't have a good game then as twelve for catches sixty one yards while he's back a catches one hundred ninety week three so we're always looking for minimal edges here with what we're doing but there's a little concerns about. Mike Evans Production the first two weeks I think it was because of that early season illness or it could be winston or it could be thoughts Mattie Tampa yeah I mean I I've been. I've been pretty heavy on Tampa all year so I'm not going to jump off the bandwagon now I think maybe we missed the boat. It's mostly nine. I I just look. I mean certainly not I mean I I've tried to say they've been disappearing literally as we since we started the show that's a good sign. That is a good I mean I. I guess we want to get the ten on I mean. There's still some out there. That are a little tougher to get but yeah. I definitely don't WanNa lay with the rams. I'm not as down as Goff. Is Everybody Buddy though I actually thought that his accuracy looked okay that his arm looks okay oh his arms. Li All in loves them I to me calling looks at every. He played like there's still a prospect. How tall is I some point. It's gotta be how you do on the field right and Gov is certainly done. You know more than okay. Hey and they're McVeigh knows more than we do and he signed him. But what was the alt right. That's the question a you. Don't no one comes on the market these as quarterbacks do they know my cousins did yeah no. I was just trying to you know emphasized that my opinion on this game was more pro Tampa than negative ramps up next phases in we're gonNA hear our girl blossom.

"I'm I'm just thinking and week three so here's a team that the sharps are are making strong statement you just repeating yourself but what's the significance. I'm saying well. chargers had the worst injury injury report the first few weeks so part of the reason you're betting against them was they had one of the word and the market tends to undervalue that at the end yes. We've talked about the charts. Forget the charges for second and again I again. This is a longer topic but what I'm saying is this. Is this upset. You said you're playing the wrong game. This closing line value is the wrong game and anyone out there on twitter that has a problem with that we disagree okay and the NFL in a lot on gaming anything the here's what I mean the game is to win now. If you say that closing line value is tantamount to winning. It's the same thing and I question that I think in other sports the correlation between it and winning is very different but let let me give you an example. Let's say that you had inside information because your brother was on a team. Let's just keep it real simple and the rumor breaks out that a key he player on this back college. Basketball team is out line plummets because they're baton his info. That's not public yeah. You know he's playing and you. You know that he's one hundred percent that whatever the story was is just not true what do you do. You Bet what you know. Now what the not what everyone else is bad exactly so to me if we're going to assume that in every case in every game that the kids know more than you than you shouldn't be banning professionally okay and in a weird way it's the same thing is with the bookies meaning. You don't have to disagree with the sharps every game but maybe it's. It's one out of five you do the and I'm not even saying you have to bat it. 'CAUSE it's like why bad if you can pass why bet but the idea that they're right every time yeah they're right more time to. They're not let your point in its lesson. NFL But I can tell you without using any names that the most famous better in history that are famous for bedding at our firm back then that they're win percentage in college football would consistently be five eight percent every year and in an NFL it would all eight percent Roi R. Y. Okay so united fifty seven percent fifty eight fifty nine crazy percentages it is so just to be clear then so my one of fifty two point three eight being your break exact hour talking about them. Hitting fifty seven point three eight to win five percent okay and that's not the classic. Roi So is would be double so if you're hitting fifty seven point two you need fifty two point four times is to the five percents to ten percent early yes so but I I knew we were just using yet words. Okay I have no doubt about it. Here's the NFL that same better in with with just as much information betting just as much it'd be win or lose okay and now here's the Question Syndicate sometimes disagree right all the time in NFL I or in other other sports last but they do in other sports less okay. The question is if one syndicates hit and fifty seven percent the other syndicates hitting fifty seven percent and they disagree. Hey would you do right if you're one of their syndicates. You say that other syndicate does well most of the time time I wouldn't WanNa bet against him but I have a strong opinion in this game and now are you going to what I would pass because I'm a low volume guy by other syndicates are going to be. I don't care we. We know we hit fifty. Seven percent were cherry picker as what I'm saying is you're not you're trying and it's not even so so much. I want you fading the syndicates though after the line move in NFL especially I like it. It's more I don't want you playing the game of trying to beat the the closing line. Yeah is not the same as winning. I I agree with that then. Why do you have Sasso I shouldn't and a great example. We talked about this week to remember the rams were hosting the saints and the money was coming in on the saints from two and a half down to two and even one F. and you're like this is ludicrous. This they're betting the silly revenge spot for the saints Ain't and it's and you made the case for why it was the rams that would be motivated but someone else could easily say hey when you win fifty seven percent you lose forty three. Rj Happened Avoca and maybe so but here's what I know that when you have a strong NFL opinion it shouldn't be about anything except getting money on that opinion now. If you believe that the line moves going to go with you and that makes you WANNA bet earlier. I think execution Russian. This stuff is great but it feels like you guys think it's almost like the people who get mad at trump won and they go well the popular vote she won. It's like okay. That's like winning yardage. Battle and football like this is literally. You can say it's wrong and the popular vote should be well then it should get changed arranged. You believe that and go work at it right but right now. The game is electoral votes when the election the president and trump had the most of those the game aim is getting. Your tickets cashed now for those who want to think I'm saying something crazy. Let me be super clear. We'll move on. I think there's a strong wrong correlation between closing line value and winning strong strong in fact. I don't think you can actually win without winning closing line value. I think though you're not here's the key your natural inclination is the game any system. They give you say a that. The Way to get paid here is gum ball's coming out of a Gumbo machine. You'RE GONNA sit and put your mind to it and find a way to pay off the guy who refills it and he's going to give you a bag of them right but maybe that. Gumbo and allergy is passing through the little slot plot. The whole work comes out. That's what mattered but you just thought it was gum balls. Will you try to game. It and it didn't get you what you want in general you should feel good. If the line moves to your advantage you should feel bad if it doesn't for execution it's vital to know when to bat but oftentimes. I hear you talking about a way that's completely abstracted from who had the rights or with the handicap is and it seems like ultimately it's got now now. If you'RE GONNA be a fall or if you're going to be esteemed chase or maybe a savvy second move play the second number guy I'm not saying. There's not profitable guys that do that but that's not what you're doing all right. You're trying to pick winner. You do that to non when you're picking winners. It's not about that. It's about the right side which is often correlate or is correlated the closing line value but not in the abstract way you make it. That's a great point certain teams. We even referenced that we just say. Oh here. Come the SHARPS bet none bend against New England and again and and that can be wrong. I mean you know this'll be a longer pot. I guess let me ask you this because you might help. Make what I'm trying to say. More Claire or clear is give me an example where you think you've thought about closing line value no way that really is too far extracted from the windy any alternately the winning and losing. Can you think of an example yeah like they'll be a Monday night game and they'll be a public team and I'll lay eight because I know the spreads going to go up right and then the spread goes up. All Times are now created even the spread. Oh look at me. I got two points the best of it instead of Oh. This is just Duncan stuff. They're just firing at the lights of the better now if you can if if you can double back and in arbit- great right and maybe half the time you can have the time. You've got fifty two percent or so. That's not so bad either but you're not on the right side early right. It would tell you when about it meaning. If you like the dog you wait so and you bring up one last point. I'll make this quick. Manny was explained to us the sharpness of the various Cindy or different sports the syndicates in the sports and by all accounts. I agree gree meaning. I don't disagree with a word saying for my you know less knowledgeable place when it comes to that kind of action but all line moves are not driven by the sharps right so if there's a public line move we just talked about the Sunday night game which was an accumulation of police and teasers. Were you on the sharp side. I mean it was obviously obviously some of it was Brown's right meaning anti browns because of the injuries and some of it was like you were saying is they the threshold move the line was lowered by the folks because they didn't want any more rams ashtray but would you sit there and jerk off to your closing line value says no but you would write well the the the in that game zo much public money that was pouring in when you were little charts. We see the cappers that don't seem to win. The House House are they're closing line. Value does have a little Asterik near that one that one needs a big astor's but have you seen it. Have you seen the Astra's or whatever now and so all. I'm saying is this. If you WANNA major how good a capper is closing lying. Value is probably the best way meaning. If you have a way to do that where you truly can do it. It's it's great very insightful no doubt but you're not trying to figure if someone else is a winner. You're your China win. Yes and I think about ten percent of the time. You're thinking about closing line value instead of winning. That's a mistake. That's a great. Let me finish on this. If if you told me I can have a data sample. Five hundred what's more important closing line value or an actual win loss record. I think I want closing line value at five hundred and five but's. It's getting getting close at five thousand Gimme. The real win loss record over any closing line value. I've always looked at six. Hundred is a key kind of ninety five percent. How confident often it's again that might be an old wives tale or whatever I haven't done the math on that I agree with you though and and and literally ten seconds we're not saying it's not important. We're saying it's treated as Gospel in a way that I think is incorrect. Okay the the charges have been bad against so what is it. When do we execute on this then because the public would be on the charges you would think now for the hill over the suber contests I. I think that the the dolphins are such the clearcut right side of my is you execute now. You take the fifteen and a half. You're saying the public is going to bat charges. You don't care the sharps are going to cause. NFL is the one sport where the sharps prevail or I'm sorry we're this where the public monies bigger to the degree that if the sharp sharp one side heavy in the public the other it's going to move a little bit like a tug of war towards the public side right in theory. Yes okay and it depends so if it's the first of its Thursday night game a lot of times actually no but again the Thursday game be bigger for the public. You would think so but I'm telling you. It's not the case the accumulators the amount you can't. I can't even begin to explain to you how many parleys and teasers are placed on the NFL NFL compared to other sports so doesn't that say Mattie the fact that the books don't have the data to understand if it's three legs in and there's only to laugh. There's is a big exposure is just a matter of you think there's complications that are insurmountable to calculate or do you think no one's done multiple systems used by bookmakers occurs and there's a lot of different things go into it first of all they don't have the best algorithms to figure it out second of all they're using multiple systems for paper parlay some for their APP some for their are over the counter tracking system. They don't always begin back in reporting together the best but the new companies that are starting from scratch with the white late the real professional white label able type stuff. It's better. It's still not perfect but they're getting better. Okay all right anything else on your game..
