"So with that being said even if they're not better without him in terms of who replaces him. They're still they're still may be the idea of fresh starts for both of them from one. Another ben simmons having a fresh start to possibly get his confidence back and knowing that he needs to work on some aspects of his game and the seventy sixers fresh start and knowing that they can actually move forward. Try to figure out. How do they replaced the void. Ben simmons with someone else without sliding back too far and what they've been able to create i think is ultimately the best path for them at this point tap for both sides in this narrow and we can look at the milwaukee bucks as a referendum on where the philadelphia seventy sixers could go. Do they have as good of regular season. No the bill. Whic box were had the best record over the last couple of years. It's certainly in the eastern conference. And where did it ultimately get them. They slid down. They made some changes. They adjusted their team. They weren't as good a regular season. Teams better postseason team. I could see the philadelphia. Seventy sixers doing the exact same thing in moving on from ben simmons not set that high. Because it's what they need to get to the second round without ben simmons. I think they're still capable of that. You are right. Jay mac and that when joel embiid was out then ben. Simmons was capable of carrying the load. But much like. We've talked about the lakers. That's the same thing working for the lakers. Like if lebron misses russell westbrook you know what you can survive during the regular season but it comes down to how those pieces work in the postseason. How much did they accomplish each other. When the game is on the line that determines the true excellence your team but recalled the whole. I don't know if they can get pieces. That are going to fit better. But they can't get peace rick boss. Ben simmons didn't fit with the analogy. The bucks flipped eric. Bledsoe who's a negative asset for drew holiday. Who was a massive upgrade. If you can find me the trade where you get. Ben simmons out and you bring in someone that's equal ben or greater i love it and i think i will agree with you. The problem is that deal does not exist. All reports claim that right now the sixers are asking for heaven and the stars and the sun and everything. And they're not. I mean they asked the warriors for like fifteen draft picks. School state hung up the phone on him. I don't know other than damian lillard or bradley beal. Where do you see a player who can have drew holiday type. Impact on the bucks on the sixers. And i just i look around the. Who zach levine. Like i i don't know what i don't know we're looking no. There is a difficulty. There you know people have talked about. Cj mccollum. i know you've knocked down the idea of. Cj mccollum trailblazers wouldn't even make. That wouldn't even make that deal. So it gives you an idea of where philadelphia's in terms of what they could get. But if i got a cj mccollum. If i got a guy that i knew that when he's open he's going to shoot and has the capability of making the shot. I'm ahead of the game. When it comes to where the philadelphia seventy sixers are right now. Because essentially what they have to rely on in these playoffs. Is that seth curry and joel embiid where they're big to now. No offense to seth curry but be able to find someone who's going to do a bit better than steph is capable of doing sympathy the land of athleticism pushes to sarah still live up to his contract in a way he hasn't before. Yeah i mean. Listen stepped up in the playoffs. I don't mean to diminish or saying anything negative about cj mccollum who. Everybody loves in the media. He's a really nice player. Rick the guys maybe. What a one. Time all star. He doesn't play a ton of defense. He's a really good offensive player. But on those twenty games when joel is a three time all star player first team all defense. Tell me can. Cj mccollum kerry this team when to twenty games. That embiid is out. Can they get to five hundred with. I don't care about the regular season. I don't care about the regular season you don't care about getting the i will fit. We just had the books finished third in the east who ended up winning. Got a little lucky due to injuries. But i'm just telling you ask if i'm the sixers. Ben simmons we gotta move on and getting aaron rodgers back in green bay this passion. Yeah passion and this topic folks. We'll tell you how much of an impact is. Summer actually had next on figures out. Let's head back to green bay. Aaron rodgers said a lot of things earlier this week including details about what he told the packers this off season saying and just expressed my desire to be more involved in conversations that directly affected my job. That's pretty reasonable. Gm brian address. That thing there's not relinquishing of decisions or control. It's literally just finding a way to incorporate aaron fox and explaining to him why we're doing what we're doing. That's a big part of the things that he's got some grievances on concerns through lavar arrington itself. How much impact did aaron rodgers summer in. Green bay half a historical impacts. Its historical. yes you can put your hand up and you can hear. I wrote down. Did you say hysterical or historical hysterical for you historical for those that i. Notes the people that are able to comprehend what he is doing are going to understand that. This is a historical moment and the national football league. This is a situation where a football player is actually flexing like a basketball player. They are making concessions for a football player. The way they do it and basketball. And as this plays out and when this finishes and finally ends and we have a conclusion to what took place because the detonation took place. Just now the last this this week the detonation of how things will be handled going into the future took place now. We saw flirting with it with tom. Brady and new england. It was flirting of it. We saw take place a little bit in seattle. We're russ doing it. It was flirting with it. Aaron rodgers went all the way and we have never seen someone do. Aaron rodgers is doing right now and still being a situation where there is no interruption whatsoever to his playing time like imagine this this any other player in the league outside of tom. Brady aaron.

"Where you're gonna play their sheer confused. That's what i told. Understand what he wanted either the opportunity to have a voice and influence personnel decisions or he wanted the opportunity to leave career. Hasn't been either one of those things to his understand. He hasn't been given a public conversation. When did this become a conversation that was was offered for consumption by the public. When was it. when was it offered up. When have we ever heard aaron rodgers. Be so about whether or not. It's a conversation all summer. Long and now aaron rodgers summer lane is explaining to us balsam. He was thinking about going someplace else. This is this is beautiful. This is why you play chess because the long game of chess is you. Wait for your opponent to make a mistake. You make moves you strategically position boom made the mistake. You make the move you get a piece. You gain strategic positioning. That's what aaron rodgers is doing and now the front office has been caught and they have to pivot. They have to pivot. They've been saying what has been done. He's put it out there. This is what i don't expect. This is why i want to leave. He has now given them the opportunity public. He's given public opportunity to know why he wants to leave. And he's also he is not. This is the first time he's ever done this. And now and now fix it front office. Did we not scratch our heads and wonder why they drafted jordan love why they moved up to draft jordan. Love did we wanted to get rid of them. All these are retrospective favorite guys. Jordy nelson randall. Copying richard stephanie. That he loves going out the door like what's up with that rigging always had this question. Rick it almost sounds like you think the packers somehow one yesterday. We seem to think roger's boxed into a corner even the guys who were telling air rogers on twitter a shut up and play era. We're sick of hearing it. They heard that yesterday. Well wait a minute. Aaron rodgers is right. He's got the receipts on jordy nelson and tj lying. Every veteran that they shove out the door they gotta change your stop working so his he beat them to his grievances are legitimate. I'm not disputing that. I am disputing this idea. That the green bay packers have suddenly seen the light and aaron rodgers is called them out and now they said oh you know what erin. You are absolutely right. We have done this wrong for the last ten years. Come and join us and we're gonna make it up to you at like they've done none of that and there's no reason based on what aaron rodgers said yesterday that i should expect that. They're going to do anything different than they've done. So whether it's aaron rodgers wants to stay in green bay and have a voice in the organization He didn't get that whether it's he wants to leave and go someplace else. Because he doesn't have a voice in the organization he hasn't been guaranteed that so. I don't see anything at this moment. That aaron rodgers has gained lavar. You're saying it's the long game and at the end of the season it's going to be different. No maybe it's already aby so he hasn't got they randall. Cobb randall. cobb is a consolation prize. It's like you know what we beat you up so bad and we get like we'd like you to play for us this year because we know jordan loves not ready so we need you for one more year. So it's randall. Cobb is the price to get you to play one more season and show up for training camp and have the last dance which by the way the green bay packers didn't put out there. Aaron rodgers put out that devante adams. Co-signed it if it's that's what it takes to get you to play one more season for us without disruption. We'll go and get randall. Cobb are you happy you're happy. You're in great now. We have everything we want. We have aaron rodgers for one more year. And we haven't had to give him anything other than randall. Kirk let me take us to break. You know what we're going to table this and we're gonna come back to this this. This still has a lot of meat on the bone. So let me take us the break though. Because you know what. I'm not looking to break. Who could be done but may not be done. We'll find out dak prescott. He's coming back from an injury and he got injured again. We'll tell you how concerned we are about his shoulder next on. Speak for yourself. The cowboys got a bit of a scare. Wednesday can't backed prescott left practiced with soreness in his right off an mri showed. It was a muscle strain in his right shoulder. All eyes are on tax return after missing most of last season with an ankle. He explained what happened saying quote. I felt some soreness when making certain grows today. And i really just decided not push things too far better to be cautious and smart about. I didn't see this as any kind of a serious setback will treat it on a daily basis. And i'll be so back. How concerning is dak prescott. Yeah i guess. I would go with not concerning at all i mean seriously this is a hard knocks ploy for the cowboys. Hey guys hard knocks is coming up. Get excited nobody watched the rams and chargers last year man. The cowboys are here decks hurt. He's coming off too gruesome injury. We got problems. No we don't okay. I'm more concerned about the dallas cowboys. offensive line. Did you guys see what happened last year. Second most injured offensive line in the league behind the eagles they had nine different starters. Ten different starting lineups on the offensive line deck will have no chance if tyron smith can't stay healthy. No by the way. Remember when tyron smith was the best left tackle in the league has not played a full season since two thousand fifteen. If they can't get the offensive line right deck is not going to be right. Lavar arrington you know a lot about defense in the nfc east okay. That washington front. Seven is nasty. Alright we know the new york giants front seven was shockingly good last year the eagles rebuilding but their front seven is good if the cowboys can't figure out the offensive line. I don't care about that shoulder. I don't care about his ankle they'll have no chance in the nfc zero absolutely no concern about his shoulder. Not because i'm not a dallas fan as people know this as you can see the colors of were well anyway. The point is is that just because he gets a bump or bruise. During the course of practice does not now mean that dak prescott is injury prone so i just would love to be able to as as someone who has played this game to shutdown. Maybe what could continue to grow as a unsettling narrative about one dak prescott. Yes i am. Defending dallas cowboy. I don't think that we need to start acting. As though every single thing that that dak has happened to him is the of the world. He said he had a little soreness in his shoulder. Okay he didn't wanna push it any further than he needs to. He may not play in the hall of fame game. Nobody really plays too much in that game. Anyway it's a fluff game. You want to get out there. You want to get people feeling good about all of the people that got inducted into the hall of fame and not get anybody hurt so at the least of your worries is that dak prescott is in danger of not being able to be healthy coming out of training camp. He's fine if he wasn't fine. It'd be a much bigger story. There's no need to turn this one into something that it's not. It's.

"Kit. Y'all have it but now you can see days the peruse it's studio audience is loving it. Yeah yeah you can go to draft dot com as out uk. abbas out.

No way is there's a there's a potty mode yeah it's called the news feed so check that out today shows going to be a good one we are breaking down our individual rankings looking at places where we disagree with the other two gentlemen here on the show and then asking one another to explain yourself which is important if anything to Provoke argument here on the podcast which provokes thought. Yeah i mean the goal of this episode. We obviously that's that's the great thing. Having three of us is that we take a look at where we don't just always agree and take a look at two sides of the coin figure out. Why are you guys though stupid. And that's the goal is like what what is wrong with. You want your ratings jason's and then at the end of this episode. We'll be like now. We're all onboard with jason's ranking. So we know our mind and it's really important that we don't say. Hey i notice you have a different ranking than i do what what's going on there and said you just you antagonize you insults. You irritate be ready to give and it can also count of your rankings. I did post a poll on twitter. Twenty thousand people voted on the pole. And i asked the question. I'm gonna ask you gentlemen see if we agree on this one of the reasons you play fantasy football which one rises above the rest which people do not like having to choose one option. I'll put it that way. They want all the options. But i said primary reason you play fantasy here. Were the choices you could say. You play primarily because of the friendship and the community aspect you could say it's the strategy and the competition you could say it's the amplifying of the nfl and your phantom of these teams or it's the gambling or the money potential side of winning a league and and cashing out and making some money. I have already voted on this point. I participated and while. I do love literally all four of these. My number one is the is the community the friendship it is a you know i. I wouldn't stay in touch with guys from college if it wasn't for that league and there's just you know it's like that hobby that you've got social participation in so it's just so much fun. I'm basically doing it primarily for the fun for the love of the game mike. I voted on your poll. Okay and i voted the same things. Jayson did you did. You don't need to explain yourself now because we're on his yes exactly. It's that's what it comes down to the second. I would say to amplify the fandom. I like caring about all the games all the games which i mean you you. If you're in the right place you can put away on a game or something. But i like having i like the stakes in the individual player it just. There's something that is incredibly on about shouting at a television that your re receiver is wide open. Why is the quarterback so dumb. Not throwing him the ball. Yeah that's great. My second would be just competition the game. That was my radyjo. That's your number number one. The strategy competition. It was a close call it actually that one one out of forty four percent of people said strategy competition thirty one percent friendship community amplifying. The nfl was fourteen percent and then the The money potential was lasted. eleven percent. eleven's michael number so we're okay just thought it was interesting to look at why people play and like you said it's really a factor of all those. It's not like if you're into the competition part of it's the you know. I hate winning money and friendship. You hate or i hate friendship right. She's strategy you can check out the website. The fantasy football dot com the communities joined the foot dot com us. Talk news news and notes from brown. The league presented by sleeper ton. Corey davis minor shoulder strain during. Ota's he'll be ready for week one. Thank goodness yeah. I mean yeah hopefully will be but it's it. It is interesting that like how long how long he is out when you have a whole new wide receiver corps here. You have a new quarterback learning the system. That's that's not great news for corey davis to be behind when you're denzel. Mems lamar friendship. Between maybe the new quarterback and denzel or or allies immortalize them more And so i don't. It's not great for corey davis. Did you say yeah. I think. I think we got and peggy. Yeah i you know what. I was like correcting myself with the wrong answer. Just enjoy jason's face in the slow pan of like did i hear that The other interesting part of this is that there had been a lot of rumors about the jets may be moving on via trade or post june. First cutting of jamison crowder. I've heard whispers in the bushes of that. This makes that less likely. Like you know if you're missing training camp. Ota's as or you know those things one of your big acquisitions in this offseason. You want to set your new quarterback up for success. I think it would be so stupid of them to get rid of jamison. Crowder tugri for developing a quarterback. All right more packers chatter. The athletic reporting packers general manager quote will not trade aaron rodgers summer. So here we go. Maybe yeah i. I think it will be under contract. I still stand by that. Yeah i mean. I mean i don't know where it is standing but i think it's more likely that he retires. Or just says no then he gets traded because it really does seem like a stalemate of like well who's by senator bigger.

"The black Mesa defense fund back in 1969-70 and working with Hopey and traditional Navajo Indians to try to thwart the black Mesa mine which then served coal to the Navajo Generating Station to basically power up off the central Arizona project down taking water out of the Colorado River. I got so engrossed in that that in two thousand. I did a six-part radio series for public radio on the Colorado River in the west and looking at the central Arizona project as probably the worst environmental debacle ever visited upon the South West Palm. And the Glen Canyon Dam, but seeing how the whole thing was mapped out in an almost mathematical fashion to get them to work to make something else work, but all to satisfy presumed human needs. Whereas That central Arizona project with a black Mesa mine off basically has all but destroyed the traditional Cultural perspectives of both the traditional and Navajo and Hopi Indians which to me is another travesty. That's really not very well known even today although it ought to be and looking at the American southwest as the national sacrifice area. It was basically looked at home, but from the point of view of what resources are available to satisfy presumed human needs as our population has continued to grow and grow and grow back of the things that I try to point out every now and then on the lecture is that in the course of my lifetime. I was born in nineteen thirty-six. And the human population of the planet had just passed two billion people and today it said almost 7.8 billion people and may last another few years. I will have seen the human population of the planet grow by 400% That's another sort of a statistical way of looking at it. But they you're so overlaying with our own species that the gridlock is becoming unclear at this point back in the days when I would be having conversation with Alan Watts. I was also writing for a an ancient environmental magazine known as Clear Creek and he which he read and I read and wage. Knowing Alan is booked the way of Zen another dear friend of his a man named Rodger Summers..
