"So it's just like, but I was just like, I would have thought at least there would have been some kind of pro forma, you know, apology, but apparently not you know, so that it says something that not only has he shown no contrition nor remorse, he's not even apologized to the player and yet he was hired. And so the for people who don't know the Western League in Canada, there's no scholarship college athletics. So essentially, the Western League is the equivalent, you know, that young hockey prospects who don't go to the NCAA play in the WHL. So it's not, you know, that's, you know, it's a league that produces most of the NHL's North American prospects. It sounds barbaric. Separating athletic excellence from college education is barbaric. It's savage. It's unreasonable even. We need to get, develop that the peated system in Canada. But so, you know, that's not like just getting like a job running a semi-pro team. That's somebody who's going to be if this job sticks, you know, coaching potential NHL prospects. So that's pretty astounding all of this. I mean, Scott, would you I mean, I'm not the hockey guys around here, but from what I do read, you know, I seem to be reading a lot of race and hockey stories in the last year or two. Can you talk a little bit more about some of the real problems that the hockey establishment has with race? Yeah, I mean, that's, you know, so that this has obviously been you know, that this is sort of, you know, you know, this has sort of been the most prominent incident. But, you know, obviously when that came out, you know, that revealed a lot of stories. And of course, related to that, there are lots of stories about hazing, you know, junior, you know, it's really endemic as it is, again, in college athletics. And obviously that tends to have, you know, a a pretty serious racial component. And so, you know, there definitely is, you know, still serious problems in terms of of racial diversity and integrating people. You know, there's very few coaches of color in the NHL, very few executives of color. You know, the Flames have brought in Jerome McGinla, you know, probably the Hall of Fame black player is now an executive. And he was, you know, he was not part of the team just because he wanted to coach his son in Kelowna. So it wasn't like he was being excluded from the organization or something. So that's one step in a positive direction. And then there's also, in addition to that, serious problems with sexual assault. Any day now, an investigation into a situation where the Canadian World Junior team apparently gang raped a young woman who was severely inebriated at a hotel in London, Ontario. At some point that is going to be released the next few days. It's quite likely that some current NHL players are going to be implicated in that. You know, and that's far from the only example of that kind of harassment. And then to combine our two stories, last year there was a controversy in that Boston signed a prospect who had been drafted and then released because it turned out that he had an extensive history of viciously bullying and insulting a young disabled person of color. And one interesting thing about that is that the Bruins players led by Patrice Bergeron, a Hall of Fame player, just retired, and Brad Marchand, who's one of the least likable players on the ice, but a really thoughtful progressive off the ice, basically, you know, this is not acceptable. Like a player like this is not welcome in our organization and essentially the management had to back off. But again, it's just shocking that anybody associated with that team could have thought that was a good idea. But that was one thing that's heartening, I think, is that it is, there is a bit of divide in which the new generation of players is often well ahead of the management on this kind of thing. And so that was one encouraging thing, again, was the leadership of the team just saying, like, no, that's not, you know, he's not welcome in the dressing room. We're not, you know, we should not have been signed. Nobody talked to us before this. So I guess that's the one encouraging thing. And so I am, you know, already, you know, I've seen some support for Lou online. And, you know, I would like to think that this Hiram Peters is not going to be sustainable. But of course, you know, junior players obviously have less leverage than NHL players do. But yeah, but the, you know, and again, hockey is not unusual in this, but definitely problem, you know, related and intertwined problems of racism and sexual assault and misogyny remain a pretty serious problem in the sport. Yeah, I think part of the most the most interesting part of the story you just told, right, is this generational divide that involves the teams themselves, right? Because, you know, a lot of, historically, and it's just about every sport, right, historically, you know, athletic teams are repositories for the worst kinds of toxic masculinity. And that toxic masculinity will often be a breeding ground for racism and everything else, right? Because people attempt to demonstrate their bona fides by sort of, you know, putting more people into the out group or being more aggressive towards out group people. And so I think it's actually kind of a tapestry. But it's interesting that, you know, as in a lot of other areas where we're seeing, like, the workforce, right, really being the ones who step up and force change in the governing organization, it's really interesting that we're seeing that at the athletic level in hockey. Yeah, so the one piece of optimism I can take for this, and so I think that it's worth watching what the reaction to the Peters hire will be, you know, throughout the leagues. I have to think that there's going to be some players who express objections to that. And again, since this is a feeder system for the NHL, it's relevant what players think and what other coaches think. So I'll be interested to see how this develops. And we only have a minute left here, but I think that it's worth making a comparison, too, with what's going on with the Spanish women's soccer team. Oh, yes. You know, with the unforced kiss on the star player after the It was forced. It was forced. I'm sorry, forced. Non-consensual. Yes, yes. Sorry. The fourth kiss on the star player. And you know, her outrage and her willingness to stand up to the system and say no. And the ways in which pretty much the, you know, entire Spanish soccer establishment below a certain age is very much on her side. But it's also very telling that the kind of outrage by the guy who did it, where it's very clear he doesn't understand why this is happening. Right. And those kind of generational divides, I think, to a certain extent in, or especially around gender issues, I think have happened a little bit earlier in the United States than in Europe, right? That, you know, we've all known, for instance, stories of faculty who are now long retired who did things that would get them fired today in a heartbeat. And those are the kind of things that can often still happen in Europe. But the ways in which players really are feeling empowered now to stand up for conditions that they think are just and to attack those who are attacking them. And it's very clear that the Spanish soccer guy is going to be kicked out. We'll see how long that lasts. But certainly the story is, while horrible that it happened, is certainly heartening in the ways in which the sort of establishment has kind of come to her defense and the way she's, you know, seemingly relatively comfortable in leading that outrage. Well, that wasn't an isolated incident. I mean, one of the fascinating things is that, you know, before the World Cup, several star Spanish players were still not on the team because, you know, a lot of them refused to play for the existing coach and the existing director. So this is not just sort of a one off, but this had been a long standing issue basically between the players and the team. And then for their win, sort of in spite of that, and again, I don't think it's a coincidence that, you know, sort of to sort of spoil that victory, then the director came in and then, you know, gave sort of long ostentatious hugs to several players before forcibly kissing Hermoso and then joking about it after, you know, it was just, you know, and then to just double down and basically lie about an incident that millions of people saw live on TV from multiple angles and just insist that it didn't happen is just, yeah, I mean, it's just, you know, everything about the end is what it is. Yeah, yeah, no, that's a great way to describe it. Yeah, so that's actually an excellent comparison. I'm glad you remembered to bring that up, you know, and again, and it is, it does seem like, you know, sort of you know, women from across the world have been united about that, you know, that it's been sort of less common among men in the Spanish League, but we have at least started to see some, you know, and hopefully again, that will start to sort of create some generational divides where younger players of both genders are more likely to speak out. You know, it definitely hasn't been uniform. My understanding is that, you know, players on the men's team have not universally spoken out against this, but there have been at least some examples.But yeah, it's just, you know, that sort of level of gaslighting even by the standards of World Soccer Administration is pretty remarkable. You know, that guy's probably going to be head of FIFA at some point. Yeah, yeah. Well, that's all the time we have for today. We're going to be back soon with an NFL preview, but thank you all for joining us and Rob Scott, thanks again for taking the time to do this.

"Money podcast. This is Eric Loomis. And tonight I'm here with comrades, Farley and lemieux. To talk about succession in the couple of days here before the final episode airs. Rob Scott, great to see you. Good to see you. Sir? What are our beverages tonight? I should start by saying that I am having a long lived move mountains IPA with citra and cashmere ops long live is one of Providence's finest breweries and which admittedly is fairly low competition, but nonetheless, it does hold the title for Providence finest brewery in my view. Very nice. Rob? I am enjoying what used to be ten fingers and is now merely 8 fingers of old forester, 100 proof bourbon. A hundred proof of this follows up on a hard Mountain Dew. Which I made a bad choice. Wait a minute. Wait a minute, at least at the fuck back. All right, first of all, Mountain Dew is disgusting in any form. It's a horrible drink, but also a hard mountain. Were you in that fucking desert? Like, you were there no other option? I was in the Walmart, right? And I saw this stand, and it had a hard Mountain Dew. And worse than that. Feeling like I gotta try the whole. No, no, it's worse than that, right? Because like, yeah, first I had to say, I have to try the hard to do. And let me tell you, the hard do is not tasty at all. I mean, it's actually, it's quite bad. If you've ever had and if you can tell the difference between Mountain Dew and diet Mountain Dew. It's like that only worse. It's as if it were O even more diet Mountain Dew, right? So just like that was one of the worst diet like that. Something like a 1977 version of what a diet drink is supposed to taste like. And that's hard Mountain Dew.

"The jobs and skills summit is very timely and with very low level of unemployment 3.4% in some areas around the country we have chronic skill shortages, I think we have to face into the opportunity with immigration immigration and targeted immigration has served Australia very well over many, many decades and there is a need to get on top of it now. And you're also right that alleviating some of the Visa processing backlogs is a really key part. We are in a competitive environment. There's a lot of other countries trying to attract skilled migrants. So we need to make sure that the settings are conducive to attracting those people. Okay, rob, we wish you well. With all parts of the business and weathering through those rate hikes that are set to come, we understand rob Scott, their west farmers managing director and CEO, thanks for joining the team as ever. Now it is the Kansas City fair president as George moment, is she is underlining the importance of clear communication in the battle against inflation. She caught up with Mike McKee and Kathleen Hayes in Jackson hole. The chairman will deliver the opening remarks. I've been previewed his remarks. So I can't tell you what's in there, but I will just tell you from my own perspective, Kathleen. It's very important that we are clear in our communication about the destination we're headed. And I think that destination is important, which is we have to get interest rates higher to slow down demand and bring inflation back to our target over some period of time here. So let me ask you, Esther George, in particular, then. Are you willing to keep hiking rates if you see unemployment rising if you see the economy slipping towards what could be a recession even into recession? Are you willing to stay on that path if inflation is still too high? So I think we have to by mandate, bring that inflation rate down. And right now, the unemployment rate is running below. I think what most people believe is a natural rate of unemployment. So the labor market is too tight. And by bringing demand down, we should begin to see the labor market loosen up a bit. I think we're already seeing some early signs of some of that consumption. Some of that demand leveling off. But

"On the rise after the full year net profit beat the estimates, despite failing nearly falling nearly 2% on the year. Well, rob Scott is the company's MD, the CEO and he joins me now from Perth. Rob. Great to have you with me. I'm very good day to you. You say trading conditions have improved in the second half of the year. It's a conglomerate. Where were the best or the biggest improvement in trading conditions across the business? Well, many, probably the biggest highlight of the year was our industrial division. So we had very strong performances from our chemicals energy, fertilizer division, 40% growth, 30% growth from our industrial and safety division. And that diversification helped with the impact that the lockdowns had on our retail businesses, but we had 13% growth in net profit after-tax in the second half as we're allowed to reopen our stores. And we had a really strong performance in our came out and target businesses, which was good to say. And of course, it's coming out of COVID that every CEO is dealing with. If I asked you where you are, you probably say to me, man, so I'm never greedy, but there's the fear to greed index. Where are you as a CEO or are you more tepid fear than you are ready to embark on a mission of greed? Well, I guess I'll look at it from different perspectives. I think it's healthy to be paranoid and cautious around some of the economic headwinds we have in the short term. And our operating divisions, I think, are really well prepared to double down on their cost efficiencies and ensure that we have really low price products to appeal to more value conscious retail customers. But I guess on the other hand, a lot of the more exciting investment opportunities do arise in the tough times and we are a diversified group, we are a portfolio manager at heart. So having a strong balance sheet is a great place to be in a time when opportunities may well arise. Will you come out of a banking background where you've done time in M and a, along with, along with other structuring opportunities in banking, are you ready to pull the trigger on deals if there's soft looking companies in retail? Where are the opportunities going to be as you come out of COVID? Are you ready? Are you ready to actively do M and a? Well, we certainly have the capacity. If there's one thing I learned from being an investment banker, it was that only a very small proportion of acquisitions ultimately add value to the acquirer. So you need to be very, very discerning and very diligent in your considerations. I guess the point I would make is that we have opportunities to invest a lot of capital in our existing businesses where investing nearly a $1 billion of capital in the expansion of our lithium processing plant and mine and we have the opportunity to increase the capacity there. We also have other opportunities on the chemicals energy and fertilizers side. And then not to forget the recent acquisition of our health business, API. So there are quite a few internal investment opportunities as well as other potential M and a opportunities we could consider. Let's take a little bit deeper. It's twice you've referenced the commodity fertilizers camera because that side of the business, you talk about the growth that you've had there. Can you grow the fertilizer much more substantially? Where is the demand for the fertilizer business coming from Europe? Well, yeah, the real opportunity probably the greater opportunities are in the chemical side. We have fantastic chemical processing capabilities, mostly focused in areas of ammonium nitrate, ammonium, and also sodium side knight. Now your reference to fertilizers is very relevant in that I'm only a prices globally at very high levels. And we benefit from being a manufacturer of ammonia with relatively low priced gas here in Western Australia. So that does provide opportunities for investment in more value added solutions leveraging off our mania capability. Okay. Rob, we haven't talked about bunnings or that side of the business yet. We've had three raid hikes, 50 basis points at a time. Are you seeing any slow down on that side of the business as a result of rate hikes? What can you tell me? Well, many we've seen, we haven't necessarily seen a slowdown. What we've seen is a normalization of spend that through COVID, it was quite an unusual period of time where there was a lot of government stimulus, it was hard to actually go out to stores and buy stuff. So people tended to trade up the value curve. We're seeing a normalization, we are seeing a bit of a flight to value that is benefiting our businesses, but the bunnings business in particular has a lot of everyday necessity spend and has very strong pricing position that encourages customers to shop at bunnings through all cycles. And zed reckon rates could get to 6% by the end of the year. A mortgage at 6%, rob night. You and I can remember those mortgages, but a lot of people can't. Do you think that you'll see a property market crash if rates get to 6% on mortgages by Christmas? Look, the 6% forecast would be at the more extreme level of forecast. I think what's important to recognize is that we're already seeing some of the pressure come out of prices. We called out today that we're already seeing that some of the key import prices raw material prices of our products be it cotton, plastic resins, timba, copper, prices are starting to come down. Now those prices won't show up for customers for 6 months or more. So look, I would hope that interest rates don't get to that level. Look, if they do, we have a really strong balance sheet. We have very strong value credentials across our retail businesses, and I think we're better able to withstand those challenging conditions. There are many other groups. There is the skills conference jobs in sales conference in Canberra in just under two weeks. Skill shortages, Australia's guard at the world is garlic, albanese, has an opportunity to shift the dial. Do you think he needs to be creative? Or aggressive in terms of moving on the Visa opening up Australia and perhaps shifting the narrative in terms of who can come to Australia, is that what he should take, the plunge, and be aggressive?

"This is Eric Lewis, and I am here with Scotland you and rob Farley, and we are talking about the National Football League. In particular, the NFL Draft, we're presently at time of recording about midway through the second round, and so the Seahawks have already annoyed us. Which is not surprising. So rob Scott, how you all doing? They're doing great. Yeah, rob, what is your beverage of choice today? So I have a L hemorrhoid tequila reposado with fresca. That's very Mexican except that the only thing that would have that fit better in Mexico, which is the true drink of Mexico is not the margarita. It is the tequila with squirt. Oh, yes, yes. Well, squirt and fresco are basically the same drink. Yeah. It's kind of strange because I feel like squirt is a kind of a soda that is completely dropped out of the consciousness of the United States. I guess it's still made, but oh yeah, no, you can still get squirt. Because last time you were down the street was like, that's a man drinking a squirt. It's not something you see very often. So it's like seeing somebody drinking on RC. So yes, in Mexico, that is the thing. So I am drinking here a trillion double dry hot stillings street IPA, which in my view is probably the best brewery in the great state of Massachusetts. So it is very tasty.

And well, that's what is the thing about those Bengal super bowls that there are two really cool super bowls in narrow and most super bowls were blogs. It's historically great against a historically great team, right? You know, and the Bengals played. And that 1988 Bengals team is like, I mean, it's still to this day. That's a fascinating team. The family, so that was a fun team to watch. Yeah. Those like a legitimately great offense, like just short term, but grade rushing, underrated passing game, like, ah, that was a good, you know, so yeah, so I could see another game like that too. And again, I don't think, 'cause I think the blow potential is there. Not because of the Bengals give up, but just because if the rams get a lead, that's a rough situation because that's going to be really hard with that kind of pass rush. So I think that's there. But I think that in less that happens, I think I don't see the Bengals giving up preemptively. Like they're gonna and we know that they will take this game seriously and again McVeigh is a good coach in a lot of ways. He's not a great in game strategist or master. So, you know, I think that that I can see the Bengals hang around a bit. And you can't underestimate all fusion feathers. Yeah, didn't the Mexicans make that mistake? They did. Anyway. Right. I'm not. Yes, on that on that note. Make sure that no rams fans feed coach Zach Taylor any cherries and milk. I think that would be a very poor decision. I don't know if the bagels off as a coordinator who would take over is incompetent as Millard Fillmore. Yeah, I think there would be the rans by about 40.

Incidentally, the coyote's next year are apparently planning to play at the arena of Arizona state, which has a capacity of 5000. I want to read a great essay on how much money the NHL owners are willing to leave on the table and keep this fucking team in Phoenix. I have no idea what's why are they so committed to the Phoenix market? No one cares. It's like George Jones says there's no money in this deal. Like no, there's no like there's no one to there's no like nobody goes these games is all like they've got their ESPN deal. And I'm pretty confident with ESPN deal years. What you really need those 5000 NHL fans and Phoenix are out the door. Like I said, I have to go like they're probably more like expansions of Quebec City who had watched the team from there in the United States than there are Phoenix coyotes fans like I'm going to do. It's quite hot. But anyway, that will be awesome..

Just learn so much from reading. Yeah you need to actually watch. And then it'll to make sense or thing somebody doing it and then work with them and let them you know god you. You're doing it. I think it's a good. And from from the standpoint of view those take onto their wing and and You're not allowed to develop things in the might the mistakes and offer the advice when needed and And it's time with the music music you know it's when all joined When the flaws first reformed in two thousand in all probably more rock drama than anything or didn't really play.

"rob scott" Discussed on Kar Dishin' It : All Things Kardashian
"Let's end on media. Let's let's just get rid of the kim one real fast okay. Great so we have. We learned that every sunday. The family has a poker night Rob is or game night. Sorry some kind of game. Night and rob is really into poker. Is teaching everyone how to play poker. By the way these scenes couple of these like family game scenes my mind because like it really still sometimes jolts me to see them all together like yes considering in current days. how like. It's rare to get two of the sisters in the same storyline and to spink back. Like at this point how it would be like this scene. Fully had kendall kylie rob scott. Kim khloe courtney chris caitlyn hours of one it was like just sometimes it really jolts me like oh man. They seem like fun. Family s this. This was the meat of the of what made this show like at this time. So it's a whole family game. They're playing poker. Kim wins with flush. And i love that. You wrote that jess you. What is it that you put it in your notes. You're like i need to get it right. God i just do it. I understand i do not. I don't gaming. I watched casino this weekend as a side note. And i was like. What would this movie be. Like if i understood a single card action. All gaming movies are like meeting ono. The poker chip stack is tall short. I am so. I'm like lush okay. Flood okay flush. And we learn she's gloating and she's really happy. It was her first time playing and she beat them all. And we hear from courtney that kim has always been annoying a game and that's really annoying games because she is a sore loser and she is a big bragar and then they all start like doing dr evil laps and it's like one of the dorkiest ever seen the more moore was very of the moment kind of against but like it's so little just a little a little late. I would say about twelve thirteen years after bill moment pretty far but they move kids things move slower in early on. That's the way to put it. It wasn't weird to do. A dr evil impression in two thousand ten came out in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine like i think i think the motivation behind it was that she was really smug courtney was. I'll show you how much i don't care. Oh yes. I'd be like our next time. We'll hard like in kim's like no. I need you. Kim needed her to care. You know it's a very funny little end so we're kim's house next. She's oh seeing another poker night because she figured it out and now she's into it one time she winds guess who's the new host so she's gloating but then she loses a hand and she's a sore loser. I mean she really has like a a a little sour puss on her face. It's a great. It fit played very real. She's she's she's having a hard time. Losing courtney is just perfection in the cs an absolute dream. She's all over the place he like thinks. There's a bug in her hair. She's letting mason eat the cards. She i related so hard to her a like inability to process the game and annoy and how much she was annoying..
