Fresh update on "rhodes" discussed on Stephanie Miller's Happy Hour Podcast
"Because we thought bob Mueller was going to bring it home and Bill Barr basically blocked him and lied about his report. We thought Merrick Garland was going to bring it home. I will say now having seen Merrick Garland operate over the last year and a half. He's a very good man, but he seems to have lost his prosecutorial instincts and he's behaving more like a judge, which is not what we need out of our attorney general at this moment in history. But what I've been told about Jack Smith is, listen, he's fearless. He will take politically charged cases that are difficult to prove. He has prosecuted Republican politicians and Democrats. And he's not afraid to lose. He's going to do the right thing. And that's precisely the kind of person we need heading up the Trump cases at this point. Yeah. Speaking of inappropriate jokes, my favorite is when you said Elmer Rhodes has perfect 20 vision. Now, that rocketed around Twitter. You've been keeping it quite a while. And I out for us on this trial. And it turns out justice was not blind. Tell us why. Proving seditious conspiracy. Tell us why that's so important, and you also said, will it ultimately convictions take down Roger Stone Alex Jones and Mike Flynn? Oh. Yeah. Oh, go ahead, speak. Yeah, this is really big. And I just wrote a piece for MSNBC deli that went up a day or two ago. Kind of talking about the main takeaways of the convictions of the oath keepers. And there are two that I'll focus on one. Now that the government has proved, this wasn't a spontaneous riot. This was a concerted effort. And people had conspired to try to violently stop the certification of Joe Biden's win. And there's enough evidence to prove that they committed the crime of seditious conspiracy, the attempted violent overthrow of the government. Other oath keepers are coming up for trial on Monday. Proud Boys in a seditious conspiracy case are coming up for trial on December 13th.
Stewart Rhodes, Oath Keepers founder, found guilty of seditious conspiracy. What that means
"The seditious conspiracy convictions of oath keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and another group leader may embolden investigators to build cases against other major players in the capitol riot. Attorney general Merrick Garland praised the work of prosecutors. As a verdict of this case makes clear. The department will work tirelessly to hold accountable those responsible for crimes related to the attack on our democracy on January 6th, 2021. Democrats are calling for chargers to be brought against former president Trump.
Oath Keepers Founder Stewart Rhodes Convicted of Seditious Conspiracy
"Talk to us first about this conviction because this seems like, according to all the legal experts, this is kind of a big deal as Joe Biden would say. It is hard to prove seditious conspiracy, and this was a good day for the government. Yeah, it absolutely was a great day and for those of you who actually read the book they want to kill Americans, you probably would have had most of the details of the indictment against Stewart road written out in that long narrative form showing he had started this conspiracy way back in 2020. And I've mentioned several times on this show that the reason I wrote that book was the things we were seeing that were happening between the oath keepers and the Proud Boys in August of 2020. And by September, they were exhorting all of their followers to start buying body armor, weapons, equipment, to go out and get tactical training and to be prepared for the post election period. And that's when the true conspiracy began that they were intending to act as a militia for Donald Trump personally. And to affect the overthrow of the government of the United States. So seditious conspiracy with the last time that anyone had been convicted of that was in 1992, 1993 with the guy who blew up the first World Trade Center bomb. Yeah. Um, Abdul Rahman in New York City. Conspiracy to attack the United States. So now Stuart roads is in the exact same position as Al-Qaeda.

Kevin McCarthy's Bid to Be House Speaker Is in Jeopardy
"America, bonjour, high candidate you here at live inside the beltway on the Monday after an election Jake Sherman of punchbowl news joins me. Good morning, Jake. How are you? How are you? I'm good. I'm recovering. I mean, the browns were the perfect capstone to the worst non personal week I've had in a long time when they got blown up by the dolphins, but Jake, I got one question before we get into specific. In 2016, the GOP on election eve was poised to endure a wipe out. It'll be level. Instead, the Democrats got wiped out. In 2022, the GOP was poised to win a wave and instead they got a tsunami in Florida, they got away from New York and everywhere else that is quo. Which was the worst loss. The Democrats in 2016 are the Republicans in 2022. I don't know the answer to that. They're both kind of unique in their own way. I'd say this. A lot of people who are trying to figure out what the hell happened. And there's not been any real satisfactory answers. And I'm looking forward to in the next about our getting to the capitol and started to report this out. Yeah, I actually don't think we're going to know for weeks. What happened? And it's going to be 50 different stories in 50 different states. My take on my own question is that recency bias leaves people with the broken leg feeling the worst and so the Republicans are feeling the worst right now, but if you look at it over a history, 2016 will be the pivotal point. You've got Ben Rhodes sitting on the curb in almost crying and Republicans are going to win the house. I think they're going to win the house. I think the latest is two 20 to two 15 at the worst, maybe two 22 to two 13 at the best. What do you hear? That's how I assess wasserman kornacki and decision desk. The three go tos on nonpartisan analysis. Yes, I think two 22 is their best hope. McCarthy was telling people last week that he thought it would. He thought that it would get up to two 30. That's not going to happen. So I think listen, I think, I think they'll control the house you, but I think it's going to be a very small and very unmanageable majority. And we report in punchable news this morning about some of the, let's call them asks that the right is asking of Kevin McCarthy in order to get their vote. I mean, I'm not convinced. Let me put it this way. If we're at two 22, if Republicans are at two 22, McCarthy could lose four votes. I could give you four people that today, I've got a lot of money would never vote for Kevin McCarthy. So I think it's a big, I think McCarthy's hopes of being speaker are I don't want to say they're far off. I think they're just, I think it's just going to be really tricky for him.

"The leader of the far right group the oath keepers was back on the witness stand in his seditious conspiracy trial Stuart Rhodes told the jury it was stupid for any oath keeper to attack the capitol It was not their mission He had no idea his followers were going to join the mob on January 6th of last year and was upset when he learned some of them did Prosecutors have tried to show for the oath keepers This was not a spur of the moment protest but part of an extensive plot Rhodes told jurors he believed it would have been legal for then president Donald Trump to invoke the insurrection act and call up a militia in response to what he believed was an unconstitutional and invalid election Rhodes also claimed weapons found nearby in Virginia were not meant to be part of a quick reaction force Ed Donahue Washington

Breaking Down the Obama 'Apology Tour'
"Now, in a unique way, as a graduate of president Obama is a Harvard Law graduate as you are, you're carrying a rifle and a war zone, president Obama is off on the apology tour. How did that feel? Because you know that that's an ideologue. That's not a commander in chief. That's an ideologue spouting Ben Rhodes written nonsense. The metternich and the MSNBC is out there feeding him lines, which just doesn't match up with your reality walking point. Yeah, well, as I say in all these strong Barack Obama was the most ideological president since Woodrow Wilson, he's an example of what Jean kirkpatrick famously said about the Democrats that blame America first Democrat. And we took that tour in the spring of 2000 winter in spring of 2009. He continued to apologize for he viewed as America sands. Remember, it was on the apology tour when he denigrated American exceptionalism, which most Americans hold dear, saying it was no different from Greeks thinking Greece's exceptional or the British thinking Great Britain is exceptional, which is rarely Obama's way of saying that it's just kind of an outdated and obsolete chauvinism for one zone that we should really all transcend our petty patriotism. And become what Obama declared himself in the 2008 campaign, a citizen of the world. So it makes a certain sense that he would go on that kind of apology tour. Because he is deeply hostile to American power and America's unique leadership role in the world. In fact, he said, his client not only was strong, that no world order should elevate one nation above the other. Most

Cynthia Hughes on the Mistreatment of the J6 Political Prisoners
"We've got 3 million listeners tuned in across the country from California to New York across the heartland of America. Will you give us just a potted summary of what's going on, the oath keepers trying is underway. What do they need to know that the mainstream lying media will not tell them? Well, one of the big things about the oath keeper trial, we have a few wives that are in D.C. right now for their husband's child. A few steps away from the D.C. jail and they can not visit their husbands. And when you go into the courtroom, I've been to the oath keeper trial a few times. I'll be back in D.C. in the next few days to accompany these wives. They're not even allowed to engage with their husbands in the courtroom. There's no way there's no embrace. There's no, you know, mouthing of, I love you or hello, nothing. Who's telling them they can't do that? Who is telling them they're not allowed to say, I love you to their husbands. Well, probably the judge and the, you know, the U.S. Marshals. So, I mean, it's very strict. I mean, I've watched it with my own eyes, you have four or 5 Marshals in the courtroom, you have multiple defendants on trial. You have Thomas Caldwell kind of harrelson, Jessica walk ins, Stuart Rhodes, and Kelly mags. And none of them can engage at all with their with their loved ones.

Yeah, let me just say, first of all, that it's a pleasure to be on the podcast today.

Glenn Kirschner's Insight Into Oath Keeper Trial Revelations
"So you have been covering, obviously, you've been at the oath keeper trial. Obviously the bombshell is Stewart Rhodes claimed to have contact with the Secret Service agent according to an ex member. Oath keepers founder Stewart Rhodes claimed he was in contact with the Secret Service agent in the months leading up to J 6, a former member of the far right group testified. John Zimmerman, the former oath keeper, testified. He recalled how the oath keepers gathered guns in preparation for the possibility that Trump would invoke the insurrection act. He said of roads he did have a number for a Secret Service agent or claimed it to be a Secret Service agent back in September. Give us your take on that. So, you know, the Secret Service agent angle is interesting, but I think it's a bit of a sideshow and even a distraction because it has nothing to do with the charges against these 5 oath keepers that are on trial. So listen, I've been in there every day. I've gotten to talk, not about the case, but with the prosecution team, my former homicide prosecutors. I know a lot of the folks involved in the case. I would caution them not to go down that side road of Secret Service stuff and what's Trump involved because that has nothing to do with the charges. It's intensely interesting and concerning if Stuart Rhodes is actually in communication with the Secret Service, but mind you, this was back during a rally, a Trump rally in September in Fayetteville, North Carolina, so it really doesn't have much to do with the insurrection on January 6th. Interesting and will probably hear more about it in the future.
Trump Wants 'His' Documents Back
"Trump is asking the Supreme Court to give his documents back which are our documents not his documents and also he belongs in prison for it because the classified and probably nuclear secrets. Okay, good. Your thoughts? Yes. No clear. Well, they gotta give them back. First of all, they were planted, so that's why we need the back. Just to replant them where they were planted to show you if they were planted, so we got to get them back. Many people have said. We just played that. Him saying they're planted again, which of course his lawyers are never going to say, because you can't lie like that in court. Okay, this from The Washington Post piece aides who worked with Trump's White House were not surprised this summer when the FBI found highly classified material in boxes at Mar-a-Lago mixed with news clippings and other items. They had seen such haphazard collections before. During his four years in office, Trump never strictly followed rules and customs for handling sensitive government documents, according to 14 officials from hence administration. Most of whom, of course. Insisted on it. Until I guess their book comes out. To discuss what they call Trump's mishandling of classified information, he transcripts of his calls with foreign leaders as well as photos and charts used in his intelligence briefing to his private residence with no explanation. He demanded the letters he exchanged with Kim Jong-un, he kept close at hand so he can show them off to visitors, documents that would ordinarily be kept under lock and key, mingle with piles of newspaper articles in Trump's living quarters and in a dining room he used as his informal office. Someone Carlos was talking was it Ben Rhodes saying, it is always that he is his entire life, thought the rules don't apply to him, right? That Ben Rhodes said, whenever you put these in a burn bag and they are burned immediately, that is how in every other administration, this kind of material was handled.

"rhodes" Discussed on The Final Lap
"For that and I can tell you it's a really it's a really fun brand. They've been around for a long time. They're kind of iconic. But it's not what people think. And they want to partner with us to get some good visibility and say, you know, look, we're actually, we're pretty cool. Honestly, it's been pretty, you know, it's been pretty changing for me. I met these folks and they kind of explain their story and we've gone to their location that it's really it's really unique. I'm really excited about what they do. So, you know, I hope we can represent them further than just Daytona. Hopefully hopefully more racism won. That's actually good to hear that you have sponsorships or sponsors in general companies coming into NASCAR. That you're excited about. Yeah, well, you know, I think you have to have some sort of excitement or passion for the people you partner with, otherwise it's kind of an empty and empty thing, right? It's a logo on your truck. And you don't even know what's on your truck. I'm kind of the opposite. I like to be involved in what's neat is these people that you meet in the sport. They're all usually pretty good people and they all have such an amazing story with the companies that are with. And I always just found the whole networking piece very, very interesting. Looking at the upcoming NASCAR season as a whole. Do you remember a time when there's been this much excitement around just the entire sport of NASCAR? No. Well, you know, not really, the times that I started watching NASCAR, I was so young that, you know, I really didn't perceive all that excitement. It was my own excitement. I was 7 years old, 6 years old and those were some really good times and NASCAR. You know, 2003, four, 5. It's the stuff that legends are made of. But now, modern times, yeah, this is a ton of excitement. I think, you know, the next gen cup car is a big contributor to that. But the truck series itself are series itself has been so it's just been packed with competitors. It's just been so impact and if I look back at my history and the truck series, I think it is harder now to win a race, harder now to win a championship than ever before. For sure, for sure. Now as a driver and as a fan, what do you expecting to see? Let's say you've already won your truck series race. And you're sitting down to watch the Daytona 500. What do you expecting out of those cup guys? You know, I'm gonna expect maybe some hesitation, like a little bit of hesitation to start. I don't think they're gonna risk it all initially. I think all those cup drivers are very, very smart. They're methodical. And I really feel like you might not see them push it like you would, the old style cut car because they don't know what to expect yet. You don't know what's gonna break. You don't know how the bumpers are going to line up. You don't know really how they're going to drive and a huge pack like that. I mean, I know they did some testing, but this is the racing environment now. Things change and it happens fast. So if I was a cup driver, I would take it slow. Where are you going to be watching the race? I'm actually going to fly back home. The night before that, I'm going with I'm going with my engineer out to local late model track. We're going to help him out and see if we can get a win with him. And then I'm going to fly home and hopefully be on the couch watching the Daytona 500 and next to my next to my family and my puppy. All right, sounds good. And last question, what's your daily driver? You try and maybe nudge Toyota to get a Supra out of them or what? That's actually what I'm in right now. I love it. Awesome. I gotta say, look, I was skeptical. I was skeptical when they said the super was coming back because you know I really enjoyed those cars, my dad had a Supra when he was about my age. And so I don't know, it just felt right. And they knocked it out of the park. I mean, it's got really good power stock. There's so many options you can do to them to customize them. And what I think is really fun is the fact that it's got the room in the back. It's spacious enough yet nimble and quick. It's just like the total package. That's perfect for a race car driver. Yeah, well, not on the road. I'm going to get myself in trouble. Yeah. Yeah, you get plenty of the horsepower over at the track. All right, Ben Rhodes, I totally appreciate the time. 20, 21, NASCAR truck series champion. I'll say it one more time. Best of luck throughout the season and especially this coming weekend at Daytona. Yeah, thanks so much and I love hearing it. So we can keep it going too. The final lap dot com. The final app weekly is back. Here's your host Carrie Murphy and Toby Christie, just a couple of.
"rhodes" Discussed on The Final Lap
"Everybody's talking about the next gen Cup Series car. But you just mentioned a bunch of changes coming to you guys as well. So how do you deal with that heading into this season? Well, you know, the good part is that the folks that I have on my specific crew, this 90 19 have a lot of experience with bump stops. It's technology that's been around for a long time. It's been used in late models really, really heavily. And of course it's used in the Xfinity series and it was in the cup. So I feel like we're well versed. And the preparation is really just having the knowledge on how to implement it. And so far, we've got the right people. So that gives me a lot of comfort going into Daytona and really the whole 2022 season. And Daytona is this weekend. I mean, how do you prepare for that? What are you going to be doing? What are some of the things on your checklist? Well, you know, we prepare with simulation as far as the driver goes at most race tracks. But they told her that's not necessarily the case. I mean, it's just something that you have to be in and experience and really just it's something that you have to look back at and look at video and look at your notes and really you just have to have the experience. It's so unique. Yeah, absolutely. So what is your outlook for the upcoming season for 2022? You've got a championship under your belt that has your goals changed? You know, I think the big goal for this year is to try to get 5 wins. I mean, that's the most I've ever had for sure, but it's doable. But it stays within the same mantra of making sure that we're smooth and consistent and we're not missing our marks and there's no mistakes and, you know, if you can do all of that, you should be finishing more laps than anybody else. You should be finishing the top ten every race. And those are goals of ours. I think they're doable. They're really tough. And no mistakes is the absolute foundation of that. We're on with defending truck series champion Ben Rhodes. And overall, as a NASCAR driver, what do you think your goals are for, say, the next 5 years? You know, I haven't really thought out that far, actually. All right, three years. Well, I'm notorious for taking it race by race and I mean, you can say season by season, but really, I'm raised by race. I try to have one eye looking towards the championship at the end of 2022 or the end of the race season. And then one eye on the race that's in front of me. I am notorious for not looking much further than that. It's funny, a lot of people ask me last year. Did you ever think you were going to run a Cup race at Sonoma? And I say, no, absolutely not. Grateful for the opportunity. But my focus has been so heavily geared towards what I'm doing with this truck championship that I haven't even looked at anything. And really I'm so happy at Thor sport racing. It would be it would have to be really something for me to even take my focus off of the truck series. I'm just so happy. You mentioned, oh, that's great. That's great to hear. You mentioned Thor sport. What's the lineup looking like in terms of sponsorships and drivers and all that stuff for this year? Well, I'm really excited. We've got a sponsor where announcing here at Daytona. So I can't spill the beans just yet. But you can look for that and I can tell you it's a really it's a really fun brand. They've been around for a long time. They're kind of iconic. But it's not what people think. And they want to partner with us to get some good visibility and say, you know, look, we're actually, we're pretty.
"rhodes" Discussed on What Bitcoin Did
"What's happening with the crypto space? What does that mean for your future? Are you I just think it's just something that it's not going to go away. And so now we as adults have a moral responsibility to educate them on it. And that's just how I feel about it. How are you orange peeled? You know, it's funny because Dennis Porter. Yeah, he reached out to me because I guess Brad did like a hearing and really going really hard about banning Bitcoin. And he just asked me very casually about my position on it. And I said, well, of course I'm not for banning it. Why would anyone do that? Is that what he's really doing? And then so he got me on a Zoom call with all these amazing influential bitcoiners and they took two to three hours, just walking me through it from all aspects of this industry. And the passion was so inspiring, and then they gave me books. But you do your own research. And I love that. They're like, you do your own research. And research. And you decipher yourself. And then that's kind of how it all evolved after that. And then I decided you know, our campaign's gonna accept Bitcoin. And so we accept Bitcoin. And then I was like, I love the night lightning network. This is so cool. And so I got really excited about lightning. I'm still learning about it. So I think it's just evolving. And I just don't see it going away. And you've been very much welcomed by the Bitcoin community. Yes, thank you. Thank you. It's been awesome. I think they can be wild sometimes. They're nice. I think the Bitcoin can be nice. I haven't had any bad experiences. I think for me, don't raise any Ethereum. They might turn on. I've only I'm so busy. I've only had the time to only look at Bitcoin and you know I actually talked to elected official of doctor jamin Johnson, who's the representative of South Carolina. He decided to put Bitcoin on his platform and accept Bitcoin. And I just talked to a mayor that's running a Los Angeles about putting Bitcoin on his platform as well. And he was super, super open to it. He was he actually took 30 minutes just on that one topic of why he should consider adding Bitcoin to his platform. Do you know why I think this is important for another reason? Why? So there has been some movements across the Republican Party to understand, except Bitcoin, Ted Cruz has become a supporter of Bitcoin, governor Abbott has become a supporter of Bitcoin. So there's various Cynthia lumis up in Wyoming. I think it's really important that Bitcoin doesn't become a partisan. Partisan issue and political fight because it is something that can benefit. It doesn't matter whether you're conservative or liberal, you can support support you, Bitcoin is great for reducing wealth disparity. And Bitcoin is also protects property rights. So it covers both conservative and liberal issues..

"Gave you. My dad gave me a unique name, Erica Rhodes. I went a month without having a name and then because my parents couldn't agree on a name. Right, a month. A whole month, and then finally they agreed on Erik who was Simone roads. Wow, my son went a day without a name. And what did you name your son? Connor. Oh, that's a good name. So what happened is I wanted to call him axel after Axl Rose and my ex-wife wanted to call him Bailey, which I didn't like. She didn't like axel, she thought it was horrible. I thought Bailey sounded like a dog. So we didn't have a name for a day and my dad's Irish and his mom's his grandma's Irish. And so he had an Irish standing, which was McCormack. So we went with Connor Connor McCormack. Nice. Yeah. I have to be a mom one day. Well, it's got his own challenges. Yeah, I'm a teacher. I definitely know about that. What age do you teach? So I teach K through 6th grade science. But I literally taught kinder through 12th grade. But I'm in my sweet spot. I love teaching science to elementary school kids. It's the most extraordinary thing. I can imagine. Yeah. Because you see the aha moments and their eyes light up. They get really excited about all the different experiments. Burning magnesium? Do you set fire to magnesium? No. That was almost my favorite thing in science, just burn magnesium. No, we don't do that. In elements. So 6th grade is what age. I'm 11, 12, depending on their birthday. Okay, so that's my daughter's age. Okay. Do you have two kids? Yeah, I've got a 17 year old son and an 11 year old daughter. Nice. Each with her own, unique and individual challenges, both age based, gender based attitude based personality based. They are completely individual. And I love them both. That's good. And let them be their authentic self. Yeah, that's something I've learned. You know what? You mature as a parent. I was 25 when my son was born and I was 31 my daughter was born and I think I was too young to be a parent at 25. I wasn't ready. I didn't have the maturity yet to raise a child and teach them right. I'd probably still do. So you'd have been a teacher. I do love being a teacher..

I don't want to get off on a side thing here but go i kinda of do actually I've been working with hyundai on something i think's gonna be really revolutionize Driving much revolutionized driving a golf ball accounts here. It's called tiger alert and Basically a driver alert messaging system You know obviously inspired by an accident. So you know. Let's just say you're starting to not off because you're listening to the golf channel listening to gymnasts pretending to whisper like is on the green branch shambley mandal shambley which is my favorite shamba to take for a good occasions. You glass of the brandel shambling. Exactly i just wanna say they're never on the. I don't know why there was friend nancy so far away. Yeah it's very far away Which is while you're listening to that and nodding off by the short odil you'll hear my voice say hey hey gave her head in the game. Are bubba bubba. You're in trouble baba now. That's obviously not the bubba watson. I'm sure it's just something that i say to him. Randomly most of the time. Mom i kinda liked to talk trash on four and sought fundraising not to the honda experience. Where were you when he was buying the general lee with the unfettered flat. Can i ask you a question. I think that you could also create a chewing gum that keeps you awake by chewing it and inspired by bubba watson and call it trouble. Bubba said sound good You don't I like to wear thinking how you thank you. It's the kind of marketing approach that I'm really trying to open up My my is Now that i've sort of the game is kind of taking a second position Maya my bigger focus. Which is you know. just stop malagasy and making sure that my gear everything about what. I'm doing us all on point and Well let's let's talk about that so you so you recently sold your backup putter for a hundred and fifty hundred sixty one hundred sixty thousand one hundred fifty thousand dollars. Backup your scotty. Cameron putter with did you money. Why why do you need that money right now. We know it's not so much That i need him on the question is you know why. Why did i need to win. By double digits strokes and Any number of tournaments could when i probably could have just lay back and won by three or four is the killer instinct is a niagara way. Yeah so You know. I don't look at the money that i have on the banks or the real estate that i have all over the world shirt or girlfriends in every city deals Some of the human beings that are our own them but they work for me So they are part of my volume things as Okay i'm done. I'm pushing want to get more. And if i can you know. Make one hundred fifty in change on the side just by selling a but golf butter basically They're not going to do that. You know that's that's where my focus assist. I think that's good place. What you're showing is you still ha- even though you're not still have that tiger is still possibly you know inventing new creative ways for instance saw something odd but i've just recently albin been doing Went back you know throughout my career. I i was thinking like this. But i never knew what i was gonna have to turn you know. Turn it into action sol I made last Cast of all my debits Brought my prayer. Then leave the big foot. You know thing. Yeah sure sure. Yeah yeah and i started selling those on oetzi for five thousand dollars each. Wow and are the and people are paying five thousand for a tiger divet. Yeah and i just wanna say There's gonna be some people out. There are some ripoffs. They're not mine. Careful gotta do if you see one. That says it's out of the sand trap that is obviously obviously can't do blaster. Paris cast and Insent so that's a very good way to tell that you've got your grounding your club Which i won't talk about the drills that currently which you can do in you what have kind of a club stand composite. Patrick read that one was shot across the battle for you pat. There's no one who can hate patrick. Read more than his own family Well tiger thank you for For talking with us and Alert i hope.

"I know just it. It hurts their grandchildren unit. I mean who will hear that story so vain. Think man that could have been now. Get your uniform on and you're gonna work at wendy's that's right all right so i don't know if you saw the coco vandeweghe warm upset but this is fascinating right now. But coco vandeweghe. Keep in ways like piece. I guess walmart but she's a phenomenal. Us women's tennis player i think. Us women's tennis is a lot better than the men's in terms of certainly set up better for the future for the future. Because i can tell you any fantasy offers the only one on the outside but coco vandeweghe was feeling the heat and i only was that hot. I mean it was ninety three. That's hot. I think but like she was feeling the heat of wherever she was playing and was like i'm injured. Kinda having the hamstring stuff and meeting to be worked on and whatnot and so what happened was before the third of four sets. You're supposed to go out and just hit back and forth just practice back and forth with your opponent. That's just courtesy of the game. So opponent wanted to practice and shoes. i can't do it. can you just do it with your coach. Which by the way is totally legal. You can just hit with their coach and opponents said no. I want to hit with you so she just stood there too. They're just so lightly hit it then took with her left hand. Hit the rack. it is. It's insane it would be like in warm ups. If like tom brady would just throw it right down on the ground in delaying someone. Someone picking up not moves feed at all to catch it if it goes this way. Just let it go over his f- his arms justin here and if it goes over said just let it was insane and i think people are used to seeing athletes go so hard got really all the time but this is i think what you wanna tie into a larger thing that's going on this is sort of kane'ohe soccer stuff which i think is that and simone biles about her. Two people urges expect athletes just play through all the pain and the crap because it's such a gift and so rare to get to this level that when we have someone who's like. Hey you know what i'm died. I don't wanna well. I don't feel i don't think we'd ever see that in football though because if a guy doesn't even show it on like the practice field in the practice thing and right before the he's it's like you said we'll bring this guy in this next he'll go. He wants to go harder than you do. So we're going to bring him in the thing. This great there is just like the attitude of like okay. I said that you should warm off with coach. I'm not getting anything out of this. Because i said i didn't even need it so what i'm supposed to come out here and give you my best self when you that's right so i think we're entering a new phase. We're in all sports except football. You will see people to say. I'm gonna do that for sure. Hope it i think did that. A little bit made us look at all of our systems and be like wait. Why do we all need to be at the office right now. I can do this shift from home. I don't have to do this the way that we used to do. It like. let's let's find. This was like a perfect little break for a stick our head out of the game. Look back over. It can find a better when coaches clean house and say like i need a new use michigan. As an example the way michigan said look. Our defense was good in good in good for so long we couldn't win the big games against higher quality. Talent start over with a whole new philosophy will pull some nfl ideas. That's what we're gonna do. And i think that's the kind of stuff that like these athletes who are stepping out on that ledge and taking heat taking heat like neil soccer took heat from a reporter. Like people were doing that and stepping on doing that. I think it's it's interesting to watch because they're kind of they're taking heat but at the same time. Open the door for other people. It's cool it's it's I think what it did for all of us is sort of forces you to hit a hard reset button because someone else's hitting it for first of all the beginning of the pandemic they're like this is what you to do. Have to sit home. And you have to analyze your life in in a way that you may want to. You're going to be forced to slow down and and think about what you actually want to put back in your life and it's interesting to see where we're going on the back into that from a sports standpoint. I think the thing. That's interesting with like simone biles. Who you mentioned too new sake is like that. Sports is one of those things where there's been a align there that is a part of sports specifically which is a when it gets hard. You push through that you have the breakthrough and not even like yes pain but also just when it gets hard like when you think you can't do it you know when you're like this is not something that mitalent will allow me to do to more more reps. That's russell gets built. And so where is that line now. And i think that that's the interesting thing. What are you supposed to push through either. A that's a mental hurdle or a physical hurdle any of these things. And what are you. Where is that line where you say like no actually i either don't want to or cannot or whatever because it's like that's that's where i think the line was. The complicated thing was about miles. Was that you're like well. We're not used to seeing people say that in sports and and the story came out in such a way that made a lot more sense which lost in the air. And you're at risk of injury allies yourself but i mean it was just mental health in.

That's enough of that already getting crickets because this happened. I think we should in the world. Try and give ryan locked e the benefit of the doubt. Right we've always said ryan lock is like floating gronk right. He's like swimming nodding so good. Their best friends spread makes sense. Like if grant could swim he would be ryan locked the nf ryan like you could catch passes. You would be like right. So good like lindsey if you were to do one of those souls switching movies okay and those two guys switched sold night on with no no one would be like if we switch soul if lackey jumped into gronk spotty and gronk jump deadlocked so locked just injured himself. I mean he tried to make it back for the olympics. I don't know if you saw that. But he tried and he just barely missed showing you how difficult it is to make an olympic team for any ethic. Okay does he now. No thirty seven. Great question. Thirty seven years old and he is recovering due to an apparent accident. An inflatable waterslide. Is that the most laki thing ever liked to me. they're better bit vodka. Going down that water slide. But he's gonna try and drink the vodka as he's sliding down but that is just he posted on instagram. Like you just life by the way just kyla read. I thought it'd be read but just say just say lindsay that you had an accident an undisclosed. We can call it a soft tissue accident in my right. that's true. Is anyone asking all of the follow up questions posed. They're being coy about it. That's so lucky It's like gronk tripping over a karaoke machine and landing on along with his shirt on one hundred percent like what so you so his life wrote i. She really posted a photo of him. Giving a thumbs up on a hostile. He's mike utley. Jesus christ in the hot and the thumbs up is what guys give when. They're carried off on a stretcher so we know they're not paralyzed thumbs up like locked. Don't give the thumbs up because you had an inflatable water slides. She wrote o- going into though. I wanna to know more about the. You can't just say you had an accident on an inflatable water. Sled and not be very specific about what that she's roll off the top. Don't race down and inflatable kids waterslide. Folks so all she wrote don't race done it so clearly. He was trying to some kids like again. He didn't make the olympics. He's got to get that racing out of his system. He probably was driving along and saw some like waterslide and was like. I gotta get in this right now. You kids are toast. And then he heard surgery was a success also. Wrote surgery surgery okay. Was he racing on his feet like could have been run down a waterslide. Understand how you could just pick up too much. Maybe he doesn't know how waterslide works. God blessed. I mean his wife crazy. We'll all right so let's move on so we were talking about You know the contracts in the nfl. And i think you know. The nba contracts are insane. I don't know if you've been following going on with the lakers and whatnot but dennis schreuder. Dennis schroder was offered like an eighty. Two million dollar eighty. Four million dollar contract to resign with the lakers. Now they sign russell westbrook. So no one's gonna pass no one's gonna pass anymore and to you might not get your reps. But he was like no. I can hold out. And he held out any held out and he wound up signing a six and five point nine million minimum contract with the celtics that may be a better landing place for him but he left seventy nine million dollars on the table. Practically that is a huge with ever proportion than his wife wrote. I'm so proud of my husband. And he made the decision to stay true to himself and to fight for his calls and his vision. spin like. That's when you need your spouse part of me that's like damn i love. How much is wife his fricking corner right now. Like it's writer died nine million dollars. Who needs that yeah. Let's be honest criticism. That's your money to girl. i mean. Come on bullets be honest k. Five million dollars also doesn't suck no like in the grand scheme of the world. Five million dollars is enough five million dollars if you play it right and you invest it right and you live wisely you can live comfortably and do cool shit. If there's one thing we know about most athletes is that they live. Wi- moneywise well. Here's my question then. Does he have the potential because not a big nba person anymore. So when you a say that name. And i've never heard it before and then be were throwing around that kind of money. That that that's the nba right in a nutshell third. But then but does he have the potential to go earn a bigger contract. It actually plays or is this may be a smart long-term investment strategy that there will be more money on the back end or is this like to literally cut and dry. You're gonna you're gonna make eighty two. I think he has the potential time explosive guard. He's got good size like a great sixth man. If you were to say like okay. Our starting point guard is down. We wanna give us bring intruder. And he's like an energy guy. Till i come in. And how he's kinda like in the english premier league soccer the guy you bring in the sixtieth minute. Who's great but you're not starting you bring him in at that point because you're like he's the energy guy off the bench to kinda get things going. I think he can keep working in the nba. And get like you could make me make another five million dollar contract but you will not see eighty two million dollars ever again and you could act to back them up. God bless her..

"That way of course so i mean what are we thinking about the packers this year do we think. Obviously he got there on time. And he's you know. Are they still just a half step away. I think i again like before the quarterbacks i think there are a lot of teams sitting here at the beginning of the season saying we have only got shot. We have a legitimate shot. If you're tennessee. You're like we have a legitimate shot if you're miami you're like we agree quarterback play. You never know if tampa bay. Of course kansas city. Cleveland cleveland saying oh look at these the other buffalo buffalo's saying it the packers saying in the and like you said san francisco is saying we've gotta ram cam. The rams rams seattle always is like we're in the mix so it's like this is. I don't think we've come into a season in recent memory where it is more wide open like again. Like you're saying we can't wait till week one because then we're gonna start to learn about what's going to be about. Who's a well one of the things that i'm most interested to see in week. One and that's what on my podcast. In the next few weeks we're going to go through these teams. Because i feel like there are teams. That are good that i at least in my brain. I'm like i know what to expect from you. And here's what i'm expecting expecting you to be good in whatever that means but like you're in this category and then there are teams that i'm expecting to be bad. Lions texans whatever There are teams. That i'm expecting to be like in that eight nate category but then there are a handful of teams were. I'm like i don't know yet. And i'm dying to see those teams. The teams were could. The pendulum could swing either way and washington in that group for you for me. They're not but that's just because i'm in on the washington. Yeah great defense. That group has cincinnati and that group. So you know. I think that cincinnati will be in that middle of the road pack. That's just. I don't think that there are pendulum swinger yet. I think that they will just be kind of one of those average teams which is good for them that they're not going to be bad though. That's a huge improvement. If dallas in that group is also above average. I kinda see them as an above average. But i don't see them yet as a team that's going to like. I don't think they're in the super bowl conversation. The defense has too many questions. No so who isn't a group for me. That i am interested in and again there are different tiers to this. Are you going to be good or bad. i don't know. Are you going to be good or great. I don't know that's And so the teams that i'm looking at are the patriots. I don't know because we've been so many changes and they've got bella check and how much of a difference will that all right good back to be. He could be great. I agree look could look great. Okay so pay other. Pats definitely the panthers So the panthers for me. It's because i like a like the weapons that they have on offense. I felt like they already were that kind of average team. Wish you know and then. I think that it's there's a big question mark attached to sam darnold for me. I think what he had around him in new york was just a garbage garbage. And so for me. We're gonna find out a lot about. Sam darnold this year and i suspect that he might be better than we think that he is at this point. That's not the us in utah talking. So i'm not willing to say that he is going to be better. No but you're saying there's a potential we don't know because as a quarterback when you have nothing around you. There's you have no prayer. I point to david car. Like who knows if david car could have been a good quarterback in the nfl because he never had a good offensive line like he was in such a bad he was set up to fail. Could have been derek carr light. It could be a lot of people think that that's the point. There's so many people that are probably sitting on their couch. That would could've should've had the talent had the stuff and just weren't in the right position. That's you know that's right. So i think sam darnold for me to this point in his career falls into that category where i just don't know and i want to know right. And he has great weapons in that office robbie anderson dj more in than this terrorist marshall that they went out and drafted. And then you get christian. Mccaffrey and pieces there right. So i'm curious about whether or not they will be better than we expect them to be because of those things. The broncos are question mark for me. I kind of suspect that they actually fallen on the bad side of the pendulum quarterback in my opinion. They do not have quarterbacks right because they have everything else but the defense i think is going to be very good. This throws a wrench uses. You trying to make yourself. Look good for aaron rodgers. That is denver. That's all you gotta do right now is make yourself look pretty. Make yourself look workout as much as you can. That's right get that interest. Maybe they end up in that like eight range and they just like the moon. Hey the cardinals are one of those. That i have no idea you know they feel so average and is it gonna tip one way or the other and then the vikings are i think probably the best example of this and we went into this on my podcast this week. The nfl roadshow with jameson. Hensley no note. He covers the baltimore. Sorry courtney cronin who covers the vikings Trying to figure them out. Because they're so vegas has them at nine winds they're like the seventeenth in the nfl. Like full on middle of the road. I suspect that they could be good. Because the offense has all the pieces to be good and you can look at kirk cousins and say you know kirk cousins isn't gonna win you a super bowl now might be fair but but obviously they have the wide receiver. Obviously they have the running back irv smith junior. Everyone's excited about so. The question lies in the defense and the reason the defense was so bad. Last year i had to deal with injuries. They get those guys back and then they also went out and made some moves in the offseason to solidify that. So i suspect that mike zimmer defense will be better this year include actually good this year and if that defense is good then i think the vikings are going to sneak up on a lotta pizza there one of those and then i put the ravens in this category too. Because they're the good or great. Because vegas has them with the third highest win total right now really With eleven which shocked me. Because i don't feel that way about the ravens. I feel like they're one of those teams. That you know is going to make the postseason and then you know is going to go home early. The way the way that they did last last year it was like yeah. They're good. they're going to win games that they're going to win but they're not gonna go anywhere in the postseason because they can't throw the ball. Don't they fix that. So what happens in the postseason is teams game plan for your weakness. They crush your weaknesses. So if you don't have that answer if they if they're going to say okay. Lamar jackson you wanna try and run wild on us. We're gonna jam the box. You don't have a chance we're gonna put two spies on you and there is no way you're going to run all over us the way right so now you gotta pass you gotta pass to win and if we hope our corners out on islands can stop your and usually they can't and they and in the postseason euro you're not even gonna run into defense is not so much that you're gonna run into teams that are going to game plan for that because everyone's going to try to do it all year long. It's just that some people aren't going to have the personnel successfully. Do it and you're gonna run into those teams in the postseason season. That's right that's right so when you shut down completely on offense by the bills. That's a problem and so i think that that's a really big.

"Guys go. That's what i was gonna touch on there. Because i mean that was obviously the big story and he kept saying this off season had nothing to do with the draft or it wasn't the draft. I think the point there was more or at least whatever. I'm gonna tell you what i'm gonna hop inside his head. I've no idea but my read of it is that it's not so much that it had nothing to do with the draft. It's just don't make it all about the draft drag artist symptom of a larger disease and the draft. Absolutely something you could point to. Because you're sitting there with a subaru caliber team. You just need a couple more pieces and we saw that right like even. They did a draft where they took a quarterback who's going to sit on the bench and not contribute at all. And then they took a running back. Who i love by the way a love. Aj dylan and these all might be good. Is the term strategy draft picks but in the short term. You are a team that is right there. Knocking on the door gives me something that puts us over the top so that we can compete with the chiefs and we can compete with the and they didn't get that and so i'm aaron rodgers and so frustrated because my window is closing. I am getting older. I'm one of the best quarterbacks that's ever been in the nfl. And i'm not winning. These championships is not because of me. And so give me something else and then you give me two pieces. That can't do anything with that. You have no intention of doing anything with that. Would drive me in saying also. Don't let go don't let go of joining us. I'm sorry go ahead. Continuous but then on the back injury also gonna look it. You're going to look aaron rodgers on the back end of his career and when we have the conversation about whether he's the best ever and we're comparing him to tom brady. People are gonna go only one one right you know like that's his fault and so i would. I fully understand all of his frustration. I get it you know. Here's the two players rallied around him. When he was like got back in that i am was like. I'm talking to you. i'm talking to you. Know this layer and this layer and this player who was either way out the door. We affleck when i was at the oscars where he said look guys. Marriage is hard. Everyone's like hard. Yes is really hard. But i did. Everyone's like i've just started watching. Someone told me to start watching the formula one drive for success. It's like a series on mike. I can't tell you anything about for lewis hamilton. The only thing. I can tell you about four hundred and bernie ecclestone. Who's like a tremendous misogynist. Those two things. I can tell you about formula one. Compared women to refrigerators they both being working in the i started. But i started watching the series and really in my brain. I was like okay so think about this. In terms of other sports aaron rodgers is the driver of your car. Your car is like you gotta outfit. It's gotta be the right engine. You gotta give the right this you gotta have the right pit crew around it to kind of help it out. Why would you not say to aaron and sit down and say what do you need to make the car better for you. You're the one driving it. We want your input here. Oh you want a different type of steering suspension. The one they have mercedes we can push pull it out and so it helps you on the turns better. Let's get you that. I mean we're live like you said we're this close. So why would they. And you know his comment about like look. Green bay is not a vacation. Destination is the point is like let me talk to people and explain to them why they should come. Yes why wouldn't you want him to recruit. He's the coolest dude ever totally. Will i just thought of it. In terms of you know my own experience and i'm sure everybody did the exact same thing but like you know when you host a tv. Show for instance. You're like i know i promise you like. I am in that rundown every single day. I know exactly the ways in which it maybe like when it turns into something that we want it to turn into. That's good tv and when it kind of flattens out like come to me and ask me every once in a while suggestions but in so many businesses. You're like you just do you take care of it. But i would later. What do you need to succeed. Why what do you or at the very least. What do you think is in isn't working. What's your feedback. What your what are your thoughts in hand. We get better because you are in some ways driver. You know of this into business. It's good all see. We all see people who for whatever reason. Don't check in with other people about what's working. What's not working and it makes you feel devalued good so yeah i think in that either someone's narcissism that they think they can handle it all or they're overwhelmed so they can only survive themselves and they don't understand how the aso's billionaires who are like. Don't tell me in front office people. Don't tell me how to do my job like the this. Is jerry krause walking around. Like i made the bulls. It's like you have. Did you had some good decisions of talk to michael. Right right. might scotty did. It doesn't really do so but the point is in that one moment aaron rodgers essentially made it so that like eh made it so that we all everybody who's ever been at a job who hasn't been valued in certain ways actually related to the guy which i thought was just fascinating. Incredible kinda went scorched earth. In a way of like. Nfl is like keep it in house. Don't make as many. If you got a problem. You got to keep it in house but he was like. I can't hold my tongue anymore. If you're when the cops get called in for a fight between hope solo. And jeremy stevens. Like when jeremy stevens hiding between the bed and the wall. You're like something bad happened here. Let's let's bake this public frigging cops now. I know but it was just. It was a bizarre. It was bizarre. No no it was a very bizarre situation but also again it's like when the outside world is gets a glimpse into a domestic dispute so to speak not domestic violence. I'm saying domestic dispute between people in in house thing you know something is terribly wrong. And when aaron rodgers speaking to the world it's like when someone is tweeting out to the world instead of damning. The person they're angry at they are trying to let the they're like we couldn't handle it. He acts as big as the message. Itself is that. I'm letting everybody here this one. I also think the thing with aaron is and i think we all know is not lacking in the confidence department. I think there's part of errands personality. That is interested in things outside of football. That's interested in outside world things and looks at it like i have power. I have an as we learn as we learned. He doesn't have as much leverage as maybe he thought or we thought. And that's just the way that nfl contractor structured and power. Whatever but that's a different conversation. But i think he looked like if i can't feel this way then who can and so. I feel comfortable standing up and saying all of these things in trying to exact some sort of change. Because i have the power to do that. If i can't then who will no one will. I have that power. That's right. I mean i have the power of the contract but i have the power of my voice in this platform to actually say something and all the players will be behind me and i wear to you. There was not one player who was like you know what i don't think he was thinking. This every player was like yeah man. Go do it go. I think there probably were little bit later. In the holdout or whatever you wanna call it the situation that we're only like totally get it. But also i really wanna ring so please please come back here. And i'm sure he for me and i'm sure he appreciated that too. I'm sure he was like. Oh that's awesome. Yes my players. Want me and need me in a way that like maybe management is not saying that they do.

"Different things well in the back yard personal goes guys are there so it's to meet with interesting and i want your opinion on this over over the entire nfl. I think again. I was reading an article about the us open tennis and how this could be the end of that era of the great. Like truly the great. It's we're watching the best tennis players of all time three of them. Maybe one two and three the best tennis players ever playing right now and there is nobody behind them. So the sport in my opinion is poised for a terrible crash when they're all out of it because who's gonna watch nobody's gonna care unless someone emerges the nfl in my opinion like the nba is so positioned well to have the best of the best year. Drew brees tom. Brady aaron rodgers when those guys leave the net you kind of have like the next era people we were talking about russell wilson and you know even look at the young guy like lamar jackson baker mayfield even and now they got these rookies coming in. I think at the quarterback position. We've never seen this league in such good health. As far as like cooler the next superstars to take over. Do you feel that way. Are we looking at sort of a quarterback not renaissance but like a boom in a way that like we've never seen absolutely and the thing that was crazy about last year. I thought it was striking. Was how many of the rookie. Quarterback's came in and had success immediately. Like just in herbert. Who the chargers didn't even that wasn't their plan. They their plan was to start. Tyrod taylor or tyrod taylor member when we had that whole how do you say his name. Anyway to road taylor. But i'm not sure so. They and then he gets hurt and just in herbert's turned into the fire. And then just never it. looks amazing. That dude josh allen. I'm not even mentioning josh allen. He's incredible josh's yeah. He incredible it for the future. Austin buffalo bills. i mean. he's amazing. The i talked to jordan palmer who trains quarterbacks last year about this subject matter. And he said that quarterbacks are coming out more ready for the nfl than ever before for a number of different reasons fell is nfl stealing lot of college scheme. So there's not that much of a difference it's like used to talk about pro style offense now the pro style and the college like it all kind of looks a lot more of the same fitting their offenses to the talent somewhat. Exactly which is why. Would you take lamar jackson and make him a statue or or receive. They would have done that twenty years ago. I would have been like. Here's what we do well. Depending on what coach got their hands on him so he ended up with a great situation was willing to rebuild the whole offense to his skill. Set your spot but also another thing. One of the things. That jordan said. That i thought was very interesting was that you have amateur quarterbacks that are going to passing league camp seven on seven things. They're televised there on social media. Everyone within this group all knows each other and the spotlight is is bright very soon like at an early age so these kids learn how to deal with the attention and the pressure and all that kind of stuff and the ones who can't don't rise to the top and they don't rise to the top faster so we know earlier we know earlier that they can do is going to rise you flick. Yours quinn fricken yours. I'm just going to say that. The kid who from texas who skipped skipping his senior going to ohio state. And i l is going to have a huge part of that like guys you know like jordan. Jordan palmer is working with a michigan. We went to university. Michigan is working with michigan. Quarterback cade mcnamara. Okay who's probably going to be the starter and what k- talked about similar. You know basically what you're listening to what palmer was doing with him. In terms of setting up like a box on the field and literally having sensors all over his body like it's a video game and analyzing very down to the almost the microcell how you're throwing mechanics are correct or incorrect. These are things that like a quarterbacks coach with just an i would say i think your elbows to know they can show you on a screen over and over again. No you got to raise your elbow up when you throw it in like their learning these tiny tiny intricacies now in in college and the beginning that like you say. Get them ready. That let you're saying. How is joe borough. If he doesn't get injured how is he playing at such a high level right away. Well because he has been ohio state in you know the players are not going to class so they don't have to ever take a class ever and someone else is taking their tickets with them so they have more time to work on courts. Have more time to not entering into this. I can answer that the same back at a so. I went to usc in our rival is ucla. It doesn't work the same. I can't throw stuff at ucla's in ucla. Picking on them there. But you can throw it it. Maurice jones drew if you ever see him one around the hallways and i do. Don't worry i'm glad you so exciting times. I mean yeah you mentioned like kylo. Murray and uh-huh patrick mahomes is just in his third year fourth year. He's it's insane moments as a veteran because he's already gone so far he's still obviously the best player in the league right but like when radius so i'm not worried when brady decides to retire in six in six years. I'm not. please don't say that i'm not worried. We can take some of the tb twelve juice you never know but like look look. I love me some brady era respect. I appreciate all of the things. Okay this is my disclaimer. I want him to go away. Like i just for for purposes of what i do. I'm so tired of having the same conversation every single year. It's like the brady narrative the com- the questions that pop up every year at super bowl of his legacy. And i'm just bored. He's the best. He's the best ever and you may not see another again. Unless patrick mahomes goes on a crazy run but i think there's more parody i actually think there's more parody like yes brady had to do it. In the time of the aaron rodgers and aaron rodgers. It's so interesting because when weird. This whole aaron rodgers thing was happening over the summer jane our guest hosting jim rome show when it was literally half dropping so we were so knee deep in. And we're like why. Aaron rodgers has the best completion touchdown to interception ratio in the last three years. I think it was like ninety nine to eleven. So eh for every nine passes he has ten passes nine touchdown passes. He has one interception. That's that's insane. When you think about that it's so good. Brady's best three years best three years. Where like i wanna say. Five point seven to one so like it's amazing. Why isn't he winning more. And it goes back to something else that you said. Sometimes you need the coach to be a superstar as much as your quarterback and when they make a dumb decision you wind up paying for it. Do you know what. I'm saying any specific. I'm decision. I don't going kicking a field goal when you should have been going for it just like little things but all those things add up. You just shows you that like brady. It was amazing and incredible. And then he had check check and now he has arians. And you're just like okay. He's all the pieces right. The front office.

"That's right. Why are we doing lately. Just in fields is a is a tesla. That may have some problems within andy. Dalton is a rental camry rental that you're like okay. This will get to the airport and back in analogy. How no offense to cameras or y'all well or maybe some offense of them but But the the idea what is detroit have to do in this conversation. Because i think both teams are so so i think both teams are looking at the packers. Going like okay. Keep pissing off. Aaron rodgers so that he leaves and goes to denver or somewhere else like i actually think if matt stafford there's going to sound crazy but if if stafford has a bad season for the rams like i could see the rams trying to court aaron rodgers to come out there i can see it like you loves. La he he'd be home. You would get such a great quarterback for a few years host jeopardy anymore though that you know. He's got lessen his closet. I'm string. He's got lessen his closet than whoever they're asking a host jab. They got another guy. Oh they got the guy who was the producer and they're like nah this guy he's treated women poorly. And you're like yeah. If you have stuff in your closet you cannot host jeopardy. Aaron rodgers air are suddenly looking like a great option for jeopardy. But i'm just saying like i could see him defecate team in denver and i definitely could see him on the rams you know. He's the the rams and denver to mir very similar. They're like one great quarterback away from being very much in contention but see. I think stafford's going to be. I think stafford's gonna be great with the rams because i think he's going to be everything they need him to be. I think that the issue with golf is that. I don't think that the rams need a patrick mahomes type. Who can who can account for all the deficiencies around him and raise the level of play for everybody now granted. He doesn't necessarily need to with the chiefs right. He has great weapons around what we've seen from him. It's clear that he can make do with lesser. He had to win the super bowl two years ago. He had to win it. They're down at halftime. And you're looking. He's on the sideline of those playoff games down in almost every single. They're down and i'm sweating and i don't even care. I'm like watching the game. And actually when. I don't have a dog in the race. I'm so much happier because then i can just sit there appreciate the game and i'm watching mahomes. And he's got his hands in his in his hands in his shoulder pads he's just standing there. I'm like dude a lot more than he is and he comes back and leads him. And i'm like dude this is this is the guy you see. What having that. That sort of superstar. Qb why he's he's. He's a unicorn they don't come along very often guys like that and the but they don't have to write like so that is obviously you want that if you can get that. But you don't have to have that in order to win the super bowl or to be a very good team. I think that in this case you could. Look at like sean. Mcvay might be the unicorn and that might be all that they need. You know as a guy who can buy them time with the motion. At the line of scrimmage he kind of he can write it up. So we're you essentially look at the players and you go. You just do what. I'm literally telling you to do when i'm telling you to do it. And everything will be fine. You don't have to be e anything. Greater than what i'm asking you to be. And i think matthew stafford is the perfect quarterback for that because we're going to see how bad detroit was right now. You know what i mean. We're gonna see how well but also you're gonna see how i like what you're saying you're we're gonna see how good sean mcvay is. It's like rainy. And i didn't episode or two episodes of better call saul and you just walk in and do the lines you don't try to improvise. Try to change anything. Do the lines do what they're they mapped it out. They mapped the whole also vary like tampa bay rays in not to equate it to a different sport but like the rays have a system in place. Like look they lose blake's now and you say to yourself any other team that would lose their number one pitcher the guy who basically carried them if you leave him in instead of taking him out. Who knows maybe they win. The world series. You lose that guy and suddenly detail good. Yeah the the best record american league you sater's of oh my god they have a system in place so i think you can do that football as well as you're saying and more so in football because you're drawing up plays you know in baseball you do have to rely on a certain degree of talent. Send a hitter to the plate. It's up to them. You gotta hit the ball. You can't knock coach coach during it. Bat exactly defensively. Gotta make the catch. You gotta make the throw you gotta do all of these different things in in football you can essentially scheme it all up so that as long as everybody literally just does the thing the bare minimum that they're asked to do. Because i think if you look at the rest of the rams roster outside of the the other unicorn aaron donald and they definitely have a lot of talented pieces for sure but offensively know beasley in. Robert woods i think that they're good enough vaccinated so i guess it doesn't matter anyway looking at them from a talent standpoint and going. Oh my gosh. They're off the charts. No i mean you're just kind of like these systems league good there and that is the team that makes them look like they're the best them. What are they gonna do at running back. Because didn't don't they is in acres out for you know yup yup so yeah i don't know they gotta get it maybe get a trade or something well. So they've got henderson still right and darryl really serviceable. He shouldn't forget that he he didn't. It wasn't so much that he lost the starting running back role as they had other options. Had to work in acres kind of one it with the way that he finished the season. Latch fantasy tips. Amazing was amazing. But keep in mind daryl. Henderson was on the bench. You know what i mean. So it's like darrell. Darrell henderson might have been amazing to. He certainly flashed in such a way that when they had camakers. I was going into this season saying from a fantasy standpoint again. I don't know about taking camakers as high as came makers is going because darryl henderson is still there and i can't imagine them just him on. The bench has the talent that he has. You have to find a way to utilize him so this is his moment the moment you say to him. Hey man you want to go get some money in the nfl. Yeah do it do it now if there's a position in the nfl where you can kind of do that. It's running back. You don't have to be all the things he doesn't have to be a three down back and probably he's not but i also think if there's a coaching staff or like a front office in the league that's gonna look at everything and go. Kay here's what you do. Well here's what we don't feel comfortable with you doing now. let's go find somebody that plugs the gaps. That are the things that we specifically don't want you to do. And i think that they'll do a good job. doing that. And those people might be on the roster right now you know you saw james robinson come out of nowhere undrafted and he was a three down back the jaguars that's right. They suddenly felt some sort of strong desire to replace. But it's urban meyer but the point being that it might be a young guy. That's out there. If it's not working right away maybe they go get more veteran guy. It didn't make sense to me. The names that are floating around like gauguin. adrian peterson. Todd gurley were kind of names. That came out right away. And i was like you don't need that you don't find like just get get a committee of some sort of guys who do.

"Guys. Welcome another episode of view from the cheap seats. We the sklar brothers. And thank you joining our sports comedy podcasts. We try to take a look at the world of sports. Go take a deep dive specifically with our guest into one area and then have fun with it as we opening up on crickets and do a little fun voice melting and that's the that is basically the structure of shouts the intersection of comedy sports. A little bit of good music that we play in bumper so joy that today we got a great guest. She's amazing. I've been a fan of hers from the nfl network. She has a fantastic podcast where she breaks everything down in the most detailed way in the world of the nfl road show nfl road. Show of course talking about lindsay rhodes. She's our guest today and she is amazing. We get into all of it. The aaron rodgers of it all the fact that the nfl is perhaps the most healthy Of all the major sports right now in terms of stars and if they retire then starts to follow them up and then starts to follow them up spit specifically at the quarterback position and teams that she thinks are can either be good or great for teams that she thinks could either be bad or good and then of course We get into who we think it's Really dominated in the nfl. Fantastic discussion lindsay. Rhodes she joins us. But i wanna talk about naomi osaka. Who jaded you watch the documentary. I'm in the middle of watching it. Yeah it so good and so many points. There's a feeling from her that she just doesn't want to be in the limelight. It's interesting because i think she wants to play tennis. And wants to play tennis on the highest level. And i think she appreciates at times the the like fashion element of all time and her interests outside of tennis. She's found a way to kind of draw them in us tennis as a way to get the other things that she loves this world. Put them together but she does not like talking to the press number one and number two i think the pressure of it all she can handle it. She doesn't want to handled it and she does. And i don't think she should have to. I think every star is different. She can take questions differently. Maybe maybe maybe reporters are trying to get quotes for their stories. I think maybe with naomi. Osaka maybe they emailed the core email their questions in two. Maybe it's a little more work for reporters and they're going to get angry about that but you have to write down. The question. Initially just hit clicks and clicks and send it to her publicist or someone who works for her and she can dictate her response. And that's it or do it over the phone or something like that. They can do so. There are ways for her to not have to be in front of the cameras because she was in front of the camera and a reporter last week asset. Obviously you don't like being here with me. It's a weird right. Mike question. I guess was you also have outside interests beyond tennis that are served by having The platform that the media presents. You might mike. My question is how how are you able. How do you think you might be able to best balanced to. I can't really help that. There are some things that i tweet or some things that i say that Kind of create a lot of news articles or things. like that. and. I know that it's because i've won a couple grand slams And i've gotten to do a lot of press conferences. are these things happen Diode also say like i. I'm not really sure how to balance a two week. I'm figuring at the same time as you are. I would say so. Essentially he was like you don't like being here with you. Don't like being around us. And she made him. you know. Repeat it and you could tell it really liked stuck her. It really got it. Doug something up underneath. You felt like there was a joy in the reporter saying that. Ask it like the other day. My daughter who she got back from camp and you know for various reasons. She's very much in another world and very distant from us and were at times. Not getting along. This is someone who we are very very close with and get along very well so the other day i asked him do something and then i had to remind her of all the things that that she had to do and i started out by saying. I'm sorry about what i'm about to say to you. I know you're going to be mad. I know this is going to upset you. And that upset her even more. I'm an idiot for doing that. I just literally spa stoke the fire because made me feel good. Because she's been acting a certain. Let me get a little digging on you before. I do my thing. And that's what that question. So that's now. The relationship between the press and naomi osaka which isn't necessarily fair to her. And i think we get in and talk about this later with with with lindsay and i think we are in a situation with athletes where we're asking them to do so many things and then we are shocked and surprise when they stand up and say. I'm not gonna play through this pain. That's right. I this is emotional pain for me and she really made it clear in this press conference with this thing. She's like it's not so much. The press conferences. That i don't like it's when they happen so it's either right before a big match or right after big match emotional emotional and vulnerable and i know that feeling when you give up so much yourself and you emotionally invest in something in your nerves in your anxiety. All we were pratt. We were trying to get our set together for conan and we did it thirteen times in four days to get ready for for our coenen set last one we did and we were at every set was great. We went up to the comedy store in the main stage when we follow joe rogan. Who had a phenomenal set in front of his audience. We were doing a five minute tv set. We're not cursing and for whatever reason maybe it just wasn't up to it. It was not a good set and we came off stage and both of us were extraordinarily pissed. Because we're like this guy to go on count in we just bombed out. Some at whole press corps suddenly interviewed us in that moment we would. It would have been a disaster disaster so instead we were able to have time along with each other and say let's go upstairs to the belly room and see if we can't set up there and try and walk off the stage in a with a good feeling and walk out of this place and we did and it was great but if someone would have talked to us in that moment and be like how you guys found about your material. We'd be like terrible. I don't think it should be a comedian. And i hate you for asking equitable and so like your emotional. I understand that was after one. Fifteen minutes at a comedy. Think about playing for three hours on the tennis court and losing a game that you match that you should have one so that is look there. Are i think people like you. Gotta be mentally tougher. Air john mcenroe in the back of his brain being. Like you've got to be mentally tough and maybe you were john mcenroe more mentally tough but we again always going to go back. And point to bjorn borg bjorn. Borg seemed mentally tough. He seemed strong and they tried to kill himself. Right so is gonna come out. It's gonna come out somewhere. it's going to come out. I'd rather someone say i can't do this. Presser then twenty years from now. Try to hang themselves right exactly so. That's a very very different so we need to. I think in some of these moments say every person is different right. Every person isn't martina navratilova. Every person is in em marta. Lena by the way. Have you heard martina and chris. Evert talk about martino who i thought was like a machine. She was like the most emotional person ever and chrissie. Evert lloyd crazy ever. Everett was like the most like machine. And like i never knew that about the two. So you go out there. And they give their life on the line the only thing that the world kind of puts them in these situations where they all seem the same all these athletes. Some people can handle things. Some people can't handle things. I think we need to have a new approach. You know how cove reset everything in our lives and our understanding. Hey maybe a broad brush doesn't need to paint everybody the same way. Maybe we deal with some people this way and other people's the other way maybe it takes a little longer. It's more to have different approach. It might be more work for everybody but let's just do it. Maybe that we'd better for.

"The individual her in today's trailer is certified peo- ass struggle rapper rambo. His real name is bryce jomar roads in that is him calling from jail cell as he is awaiting trial and someone was dumb enough to pay nine dollars ninety nine cents for this call and any even more bizarre act of brazen lack of human decency and compassion for the community of louisville. Some nut. nick. Put this phone call up on youtube and posted free. Bryce roads. no thank you now. One does not need to have too of an imagination to understand. The phrase struggle rapper. But because the urban dictionary is equal parts brilliance. in hilarity. here is their definition. a struggle. Rapper is a guy who takes wrapping super seriously and thinks he is amazing but his actual skills are average at best. We all know a couple and now unfortunately you know one more but as much as we all would like for it to be. This is not a hip hop show in fact they tell me that it is a true crime. Show so captain. Let's go back five years. This is may of two thousand and sixteen and beautiful louisville kentucky where we have two young brothers living with their mom. Marie ren the boys larry ordway age. Fourteen marina gordon age sixteen had different fathers but shared a brotherly bond in a close relationship with their mother. They were in many respects normal kids who liked to have fun and hang out with their friends. Both boys were doing well in school at olmstead academy north and the family was looking forward to both boys upcoming graduation from the eighth grade but instead of graduating from the eighth grade and moving onto bigger and better things in high school. Marie would be planning their funerals on. Saturday may twenty-first according to the boy's mother. Marie and larry left the home and they never came back but these two young men. They're fourteen and sixteen and they're hanging out with brice which is in his mid twenties at this point on sunday may twenty second round twelve thirty pm. A little girl riding her bike in the shawnee neighborhood of louisville saul something awful two bodies were lying in a circle of burned grass and abandoned lot on river park drive near fortieth street. This was not the neighborhood where the boys lived with their mother to give you a flavor for the area. One resident said to w l k y jelly to see the csi truck. I knew it was something a little bit more serious than just two people being shot along with police the arson unit responded to the scene because of the attempt being made to burn the bodies it was apparent to anyone who saw the bodies that they were murdered. Victims witnesses described the scene as horrific. One officer was seen shaking his head as he covered the bodies with a sheet probably because it was apparent to him how young these victims were crime scene. Investigators determined that the victims were murdered elsewhere and then dumped in this vacant lot. The bodies had no idea on them. The police had no reports of missing teens in the area. Police issued a statement that to teen males were found dead and foul play was evident. They release sketches of the victims on monday night. A faculty member of the boys school then recognizes the sketches. They knew both brothers larry maurice. These brothers did not come to school on that monday. So this faculty member called it in to police on may twenty fourth. It was reported that a louisville woman had come forward to claim the two bodies found as her sons but the victims names were not released until may twenty six. Of course the mom was marie ren and the boys the victims were larry and maurice her two sons whether mom is going to be told. I believe on tuesday that it's possible that her boys were found and found in this area. Yeah this is a weird situation captain because it's one of those rare situations where two people go missing. They're killed their bodies are found in recovered. And it's not until a couple of days later that they're claimed by a family member in this case being their mother but they were never reported missing at any time yet. I wanna throw her under the bus but when your kids don't show up to school on monday and they don't come back home sunday night or monday. At what point. Are you going to call them in missing yourself especially when they're missing school ron that monday so marie. The mother told the media that she learned that the two bodies were found. They could be her boys. She learned this on that tuesday. They had left the house with friends on saturday night. That's a long period for you not to know where your kids are exactly. You have to wonder if this was a regular thing in the household to just not know where the kids were what they were up to. Marie said in an interview. Everybody knows them. They got killed. Over nothin' larry played football and he was on honor. Roll and school and maurice loved music. He was into the music industry and they were great kids. They didn't take from nobody she added. She pleaded with anyone who might know anything about the case to. Please come forward now. Let's take a step back here. Captain and look at what was going on in maurice and larry's lives at the time that they first go missing and then unfortunately later found to be murdered victims as we said. The boys behaved themselves at school and were both considered to be very good students. Both were in the eighth grade at olmstead academy north and teachers. Who spoke about them said that they were in fact. Good kids but behind the scenes and think. It's a whole bit of a different story here and i'm not saying that they weren't good kids but what i am saying is we do know that larry and maurice were running around with a bad crowd right one. Also you're saying they're in the same grade once fourteen and one sixteen. It's not clear to me that that jumped off the pages. Well for me captain. And it's not clear to me why that is what it is but that is in fact the case or was the case five years ago just to be clear we don't we're not trying to bash these victims. Were just trying to state that they. These are the surroundings. This is the environment they were in. And i'm still in the eighth grade as well here captain so i cannot those in glass houses right. So here's a quote from one of the detectives. Working the case said quote when you have young kids that are in their early teens. I mean you can have really good kids and they get thrown in with the same crowd with a bad crowd. This is this could happen to kids. This is from homicide. Detective todd kissinger. This is what he told the. Cbs news down there in louisville kentucky. All it takes is for you to be hanging out for.
