"Fouled by fell at my AKA Referee. Just going to bring a stop to it have a chat with some of the rail monarch staff who are less than thrilled Jamison Olave, a leading those protests on the near side. But meanwhile labs trying to get his assistance like I will handle this, you guys get back. You don't want to get us in trouble here. And here is going to be the card. So yellow card issued to the bench of The real monarchs. I think it was for gold. Alas, but Not 100% sure on that one. See if our monitor will Give us that one. See how the graphics department works out there. A diverse is health, yellow car, mental health and well being, for all as we get another Look at this one. I think you might be right rolling by Jamison. Olave is beside himself. He sure is. Meanwhile, play resumes switchbacks with the lead looking for more and a nice play there. By the real monarchs to take that ball away from Haji Berry, now powder dribbling across midfield. Lays this one up to Monta. Now, Brett Halsey. Passes it back to ya, Colo Roscoe. Goes all the way back to Jeffrey do snub. Real monarchs will try the far side of the field approaching the hour marks, which backs on the board moments ago, thanks to Haji Berry. Will open here for Sam Brown. And Brown trying to play this one through powder for and I don't think that one touch the switchbacks, and they're not gonna be a goal kick. You had Matt Mahoney, who is sliding in He was perfectly fine, knocking that ball out of play. But then powders past just kind of hopped over Mahoney and out and it will be a goal kick for Colorado Springs one hour into this thing. Yeah, you thought that Sam Brown might be able to take a strike at goal there? He had an awful lot of space in the middle. Of the field switchbacks. Would put any money will make a change here pretty soon, and that change will be Stephen Echeverria, who will come into this match. Right? Isn't the case You can tweet your criticism to at gingerly tweets. I'm used to it. All send downfield. Haji Barry with it back to Yaya Toure, it Tory. So Jose Torres goes back to Jimmy Oxford. Offered to his right for Michael Edwards. Edwards across midfield. Do Shane Beckford. I've heard out to Sebastian Andersson, who had even see on the far side he was hiding. He's blending in with those. Yeah, those field signs on the force I e. Is. I mean, I should expect him to be there, but it just I was like, Where's the shame? Passing it to Here's Michael Edwards again. Through the middle of the field for Jose Torres near sideline. Haji Barry's got one already. Would be It depends on like him to score another. But as Roland said, great defending, thereby real monarchs, and they'll clear that ball out headed by Jimmy offered Matt Mahoney, Jose Torres. It was Brett Halsey there that was left on an island one on one with AGI Berry, former Cavalier from the University of Virginia did a good job just to When that ball back, Saucedo goes flying across books, his left footed Clearance forward in the real monarchs actually have some space. I thought I heard him, say Wa hoo! After he made that play. As the bonds of going out off of, I believe it was Michael Edwards, but it sure looks like the switchbacks might get the throwing, But we'll worry about that in a moment. Stephen Echeverria, as promised. By Roland Varga. Sh. Send your Praise to at Roland Vargas on Twitter. Stephen Echeverria will make his way into the contest for Stephen. It will be his 18th appearance of the year. Still looking for his first goal, but it does have and assist this substitution brought to you by the William G. Herbal sports Medicine and Performance Center. Learn more at H Y bl Center. Dot org. Yeah, that should push. That's a very a into the middle of the field. Get Andre Lewis out onto the right hand side to Shane Beckford over on the left in support of Haji Berry and should be held the switchbacks. Line up. Looks like that's what they'll do that your area trying to make some of those overlapping runs at Andre Lewis was doing so well like that one. And Yaya, Tory, by the way, is the player that whose night is over but filled in well, getting a spot start tonight. And now the shade back for what had move on the sideline. Always going out, and he just reached out with this foot, pulled it back to him and then gone around his defender, Nifty move there. And now Haji Barry, trying to numb make a guy that won't work. All sent towards midfield. I mean, it usually works. Are you? Just not on that particular try. Meanwhile film I Arka getting whistled for the foul. Didn't see that one. If I'm honest look like a 50 50 challenge just in front of the referee With the realm. Monarchs will take it. They'll go forward with.

"Leads. Colorado Springs, Ryan Kaufman, Roland Varga, sh Back with you and some news made in the USL championship. Did this have to do with the switchbacks, beating Austin bold role in that they have a new head coach? Yeah. Ryan Thompson, the first Jamaican full time head coach, I will say with an Asterix obviously Waldy Harris, who took charge of the switchbacks, part on a part time basis after the departure of Steve Ter Chubut, Ryan Thompson. Former great at the University of Tampa. The Spartans down there getting the job in Austin, so it's going to be exciting what he can do to see if he can make a late season push with the Austin board. And Marcello Serrano is, uh, moving. I suppose up in the organization. He's going to become the sporting director for that franchise, so Certainly history being made in the USL championship with the appointment as of Ryan Thompson as the head coach of Austin. Bold We are ready for the Second half of action switchbacks trailing by a score of 2 to 1. They're going to be moving left to right. We believe you have to see where camera one is. Uh, situated it will be left to right and did not forget which direction they moved in the first half. Mexico United will get us underway, though. Switchbacks defending the first base bag in the second half. Mhm. So Josh Suggs goal the difference right now. Looks like at least from the players that we can see that it's status quo to begin the second half, but we don't see the full field here. The guy that I would be watching is to shame Beckford after he took that spill right on his shoulder earlier, but he's out there. To start this second half in New Mexico United does get us underway in a long pass downfield to Devon Sandoval heads at once. Now twice and then Cleared out by Ronnie Argueta putting a stop to all that stuff. We wondered exactly what New Mexico United would do straight off of the Had our answer now get themselves to throw in on the near side. Switchbacks like I think you're just going to have to absorb a little bit of physical pressure from New Mexico United early in this happened and we'll see what they can do, but that's the exact wrong way to go about it. A penalty kick is going to be called Sandoval taken down referee points to the spot. Devon Sandoval getting in there with a couple of switchbacks defenders and The switchbacks are livid about it, but I don't think it's going to do much to change the mind of the referee As we get another look on the replay Devon Sandoval into the box marking Gila with the Challenge and Mark and Villa. I think Rightly puts his palms up. I know. Mm Yeah, I just know the worst possible worst possible start to a second half. Devon Sandoval. He's going to stand over this one. Face a broad re guez. Just waiting for Rodriguez to dry off those meds. He's making Sandoval wait a little bit for it. So Rodriguez versus Sandoval. New Mexico United looking to take a 31 lead Gamesmanship. Never heard anybody. So Rodriguez back in between the posts here. Devon Sandoval takes three steps back from the ball. Sandoval runs up, Takes it and scores 31, New Mexico with the lead Devon Sandoval. His fourth goal of the season and goes to give some love to the New Mexico fans in attendance. That's about as unsaveable as you can get with the penalty kick. A broad regains did the right thing. He guessed right went strong to his left hand side. But Sandoval put a little bit of air under that one. Hurled it imperfectly 31 New Mexico United they lead as the flares start to get lit there. Down in the 505. Little smoky down there Now. 31, which has been the scoreline in each of the last three meetings between these two teams here is obviously to helping. 31 does not end up being the scoreline here tonight. Yeah, not much. A bra dri guez could've done on that one. Sandoval got it Elevated just enough to get it over a broad redesignated est, right? But just Could not save that one. So now the switchbacks with some work to do down by two goals. They are in a position they have not been in very often as of late trailing by multiple goals. As the foul is called on the switchbacks free kick given to Rashid Today and New Mexico United All that time we spend during the half time talking about how the switchbacks should come out, sort of absorb some pressure. 1st 15 minutes of barely even took 15 seconds in New Mexico United were down. They turned themselves to throw in. Get the penalty kick and they've got a free kick just outside of the 18 here for another file on Devon Sandoval, man reborn here in this second half, really throwing his weight around. He's taken some strong challenges. Went down. Under the pressure of that one. Referee blows the whistle again. New Mexico United have another set piece opportunity that the switchbacks going to have to be very keen on to defend it will be just to the right of a broad redesignated. Right in line with the No, maybe a little bit about 20 yards. We'll call it just a couple yards above the 18 yard box procedure Martinez and Josh Suggs standing over it. It'll be Martinez going right into the two man wall hits Thomas Amang goes to Michael's era in his shot. Ends up going wide of goal. So nothing doing there for New Mexico United score remains 31 49th minute down in Albuquerque will see if the switchbacks Can climb out of this whole God take it. One go out of time. And just put pressure on New Mexico United you've seen already tonight if you could put pressure on him, and you can earn yourself a goal. And they will be trying to do that here. In the second half ball ends up going out of the reach of the shame back furred throwing here for Josh Suggs. Mexico United sends that one downfield hops once twice now a third bounce to Jimmy Oxford, fires it into the feet of Devon Sandoval, who claims possession. Sandoval plays it back to Josh Suggs trying to receive the pass back out of his reach Michael Edwards on it. Those dudes left Jimmy Oxford. Go ahead room. I was just gonna say this is the kind of position we talked about it during that Austin bowl game. What, exactly Austin Bold wanted to do when they were able to score their goal. They wanted to hold on and play defensively. This is just perfect. This is meat and drink for the way that New Mexico United are set up to get their banks and behind the ball make themselves very difficult for the switchbacks to break down. This is going to be a real uphill task, but the switchbacks have the exact players that you would want going forward with, among with Haji Barry with Dashain Beckford. They've got the speed. They've got the quality. Now it's all about using that and seeing if they can draw New Mexico United out and are able to get some chances against them. Because this is right where New Mexico United wants to defend with a couple gold elite. Michael Edwards sends it to the near side for Sebastian Anderson Anderson back to his left for Michael Edwards up to Anderson just shy in midfield over to Ronnie Argueta. Argueta up to Haji Barry. Guy get Haji more involved in the run of play. I would think long pass to the far side and a whistle for offside. Michi Galina just a little bit too far ahead of things..

"Kaufman in Roland Varga dish with you, Roland. All right. You mentioned this right before Josh Suggs scored the go ahead goal that the switchbacks had really been the better squad for much of that first half, But unfortunately, uh one Sequence has them trailing at the break. Yeah, I thought they dominated large swaths about first half after going behind that opening goal. We saw the switchbacks kick into gear. We saw them using their speed. We saw them using their quality. They just weren't able to take advantage of it until the own goal from New Mexico United. Then after that, I thought they were also the better team until just that sucker punched him. Josh thugs right toward the end of the 1st 45. Well to recap. The scoring. It happened early for New Mexico United. It was Chris we hand off a great crossing by Josh Suggs. Making it one nil and the switchbacks doing a good job after that of of battling and his, Rowland said, really took figure first half for themselves for much of it and And you pointed this out, and I think expertly, so Roland, you know that goal in the 23rd minute is going to get credited to where she today and it's going to go down as an own goal. Right? That that's just kind of the trivia around it, because, as you pointed out, Michi Galina has made that play a lot. And if it didn't end up on the feet of the head of today, Um, it probably would have ended up with the switchbacks player putting in the back of the net so really an own goal on the score sheet, but an earned gold by the switchbacks. You talk about forced and unforced errors, you know, and that was certainly a forest error. I mean, today I had to do something with that. Obviously, in a perfect world. He's heading that one up over his own goal post. But he had to do something about that because there were a couple of switchbacks on the door. All because of that great play once again from Mickey Galina, and he just saw his header fire into the back of the net. But That all came from the switchbacks pressure that they were applying time and time again against New Mexico United Well and then the next goal happened in the 42nd minute. It was Josh Suggs, making a nice run and getting a goal for himself got in behind the defence and chipped it over a diving abroad. Re guez Into the far part of the goal made it to one and that's a That's a tough goal to concede because it's so late in the half and we saw one week ago, the switchbacks and how they were able to just grab momentum. From Austin. Bold with those back to back goals in rapid succession late in the first half last week, switchbacks are going to really have to shake this thing off and get out there. With the purpose in the second half and not let the momentum that New Mexico United just grabbed away from them faster and build into the second half. 100% correct. It's going to be interesting to see exactly how New Mexico United start the 2nd 45. Are they going to maybe leaning back a little bit because they've got that goal, But I think the switchbacks have to attack on the front foot. They're leaving themselves a little bit vulnerable. Defensively already in this match that could happen more and more as we go further in the switchbacks are going chasing that goal, but the switchbacks have to get on the front foot have to try to play their soccer and get him behind. It adds up to a 21 score at the break. When we come back, we'll look at some of the first half stats and also at some of these scores from around the USL championship. A couple of mountain division teams also in action tonight, But they are playing teams not in the mountain division, but we'll let you know how they're faring regardless when we return here to the halftime show. On extra sports 1300. Listen to the switchbacks on Alexa. Just say Alexa Open extra sports 1300 halftime down in Albuquerque switchbacks trailing by his score.

"So I've enlisted the help of my friend and colleague Roland Varga sh at 4 30 to discuss the Australian Open. I'm what bets are the best one question which bets are best? Devante Smith. You have sea fighter will join me in 15 minutes. Great story. A personality and a great win on Saturday for him, and he will be my guest in just a few minutes. 5 to 29872 is the number If you would like to interact with show I had this scenario presented to me last night on Twitter. And I am always open. To these conversations in the evening time at gingerly tweets If you want to find me there on On the Twitter. Was asked if I was worried at all that Patrick Mahomes would go the way of Cam Newton. And I and I get the premise. Premises Cam Newton with all the hype in the world Heads into the Super Bowl and get smacked around, and we haven't seen him in a Super Bowl sense. And while there are a few things you know with Cam Newton, I would say that my Holmes is a better player. He's a more um Multi faceted player, whereas with Cam Newton not only the beating he took in Super Bowl 50, but the beating he took prior to and after was really doomed him. Because when you're running quarterback and you get Your knees taken out. And you get banged up. It's hard for you to remain in that. And that's was the problem with Cam Newton. I thought Bella check will get a good year out of him. He really didn't. So I'm not worried. From that aspect, but but the point of this Is a question that I have been asked many times since Sunday. The idea that maybe more homes and the Chiefs won't get back there. And Aaron Rodgers. Is a comparison that I have heard more. Over the past couple of days. And we know the story of Aaron Rodgers. He was on the list of one of the youngest quarterbacks to ever start a Super Bowl. He won and he hasn't been back since. And it's been a decade. So I understand the comparison and I understand The nature of the NFL. Was NFL stands for, not for long. Right. That doesn't just mean how long the players last, but it's also success is not for long. Your window can close up very quickly. So I get it. And I don't think it's it's trolling. Any time. It's just, you know, people direct that at me. Some think that Oh, it's just somebody trolling Ryan because he's a chiefs fan another. I don't don't take it that way. It's a legitimate question. Absolutely legitimate question if we have seen Patrick Mahomes playing his last Super Bowl I don't think it is. And here's the reason why On the list of the youngest quarterbacks there. Only half a dozen That have played in a have started a Super Bowl at age 27 or younger. More homes is on that list. Aaron Rodgers was on that list. But I looked at that list. And I also saw names like Brady Montana Bradshaw, Aikman. And Manning, Eli, not Peyton. All started in the Super Bowl, age 27 or younger. Now Aaron Rodgers has only been to one Right. And then ey only went to two. Right. It's easy to throw out, Eli because You know, Eli most years wasn't good enough quarterback to even get his team to the playoffs. We know you I The Majesty of Eli Manning is in the postseason and specifically going against Tom Brady. You look at the rest of that list. Brady Montana Bradshaw eggman. All of those guys made at least a third Super Bowl. Aikman went to three Brad Shine it up going to four. And then we know Montana and Brady had been toe like a billion. Been toe like half the Super Bowls. Had have ever been played. Um.

"There at the USL said they they talked about how centralized location he didn't say that a source told the athletic said that but difficult to find places that could house thirty five teams or whatever it is the cost of having your team stay for a long period of time in one centralized location all that kind of stuff that is going into the NHL and MLS in NBA returns to play it's much more difficult for the U. S. championship to pull that off and then you also have just the idea of USL championship being ingrained in the community in which they have teams in the U. S. championship really once to be a sport that people return to when we can get out in larger groups they want to provide their communities that that opportunity as well which I think is great as long as they're following health guidelines and not just going rogue in deciding whatever they want to do which in talking with people here locally that's exactly what the switchbacks are doing I can't speak for everyone but the official position of the USL championship is that public health guidelines will be followed which could lead to you know teams in in Florida or in the southeast Texas maybe they can have more fans then the switchbacks can't and we don't know what all of those guidelines are going to look like but it's not going to be it's not gonna be cookie cutter right what's going to work in what's going to be allowed in Jacksonville is not going to necessarily be allowed in Colorado springs but the plan is at some point they hope sooner rather than later July eleventh and beyond that there will be some number fans in the stands at winder field in in USL championship parks all across the country but the question that we have been asking at various times throughout all of this there's the question of will fans be allowed but then there's the other question of what will fans want to go and every year the athletic in this is Jeff reader horrific US soccer writer for the athletic puts out a supporters survey every year task about a variety of subjects like my favorite promotion relegation you know how do you feel about the direction of the league do you do you go to your game your team's games do you watch them on TV all these kind of stuff just to kind of gauge how fans are are consuming and how if there the audience is growing if the tendencies are all that kind of stuff but then there is a nother set of questions here that is being asked among them would you watch closed door matches seventy three and a half percent of people polled said that not only would they support closed door matches they wouldn't make a point to watch them you know you get some people that only want to go and watch a certain sport live in person and a lot of USL championship supporters say the overwhelming majority say if I can't go all still watch him and I would love for the USL championship even if they're not played now the timing of this is a little rough obviously because the USL championship has announced that they will play games the fan part of it has yet to be determined but they're gonna play matches they're gonna be on ESPN plus now not all seventy three and a half percent of people that were polled on this have to watch yours truly call matches so would that number be a little bit lower in Colorado springs given that you have to deal with me and Roland Varga issue is lovely but seventy three and a half percent of those polled say we definitely wants closed door manages eighty four and a half percent said that they were worried about the impacts of cove in nineteen as an existential threat to some USL clubs now with the investment that is it been made in the downtown stadium I was never really overly worried when it came to the long term future the switchbacks because I know the investment that they're making downtown any even given the difficulties of the pandemic I was confident that they were going to be playing soccer in twenty twenty one but not every market in the U. S. cell has a brand new downtown stadium that they're building or is in the type of finance this shape that maybe the switchbacks and some other teams aren't so now here's the here's the big question I'll give you the book this poll results from the athletic but I want to ask you if gains where to have fans in twenty twenty would you feel comfortable attending forty three point eight percent said yes but I'd still be conscious concerned about safety so perhaps going for a more socially distance crowd at stadiums would ease some of those concerns but nearly forty four percent of those polled said yeah but I still have some reservations about going out into a crowd of some significant size thirty five and a half percent said yes assuming government health organizations approval now that is not an issue as I stated earlier in the switchbacks have said this in their statement that they are not going rogue they're gonna take their directive from public health officials but for some people that's not enough right you still have your own personal feelings about things even if health officials tell you it's okay or government officials tell you it's okay.

"Credible claim that the owners were asking for a total of eight hundred million dollars in additional pay cuts the players made a counter proposal last night and the key points of this it would be a hundred and fourteen game season the owners were proposing eighty two I it would go from June thirtieth which is really aggressive and I don't know if there's some kind of I should say I don't know I'm pretty sure that the players put their June thirtieth date to try and light a fire to try and turn to some of this discussion back on the owners' or at least keep it on the owners to say not only do we want to play about thirty more games we want to start at the end of this month let's go so they do that knowing full well that the owners are going to go for it because of the other stuff that was in the proposal any player can opt out of playing if they don't want to and I think that I I think that that's something that the owners will get on board with I don't think anybody wants to force athletes to compete when they have somebody at home that could you know be compromise greatly if they brought you know positive test into the house so I I think both sides would be on board with that you hope that nobody opts out but certainly leaving them that possibility I think it's fair and then here's the thing where everything falls apart it's a deferment that the players are proposing not a pay cut a deferment and the deferment would only come if the playoffs are canceled and the only way that the playoffs are cancelled is if we get a big second wave of cove it which might happen could happen we don't really want to think about it and also who's to say that they don't you know power through a little bit depending on how severe this second wave is so really it not only is it not a pay cut it's a deferment which means that the players lose no money the deferment doesn't even kick in unless the post season is canceled not much of a concession not a concession at all and that's my point here this is not progress just because a counter proposal is put out by the players last night that does not mean that the two sides are getting closer doesn't mean it at all fact it's quite the opposite because the players in star with Max Scherzer is comments on social media the other day they're not going to take more pay cuts at all whether they knew that the the owners were going to come back to them like this you know smoking email that we heard about last week not last week the week before the week before I was out whether the owners mentioned in the email or not the players were never going to agree to further pay cuts the one they took a March the pro rated salaries that's what they were on board with that's what they agreed to when they were going to do anything else so this is them they throw out little things you know like the June thirtieth date to trying get more pressure on the owners and they put in some things that they feel are important like players being able to opt out and not play at all this kind of stuff but at the end of the day we know what this are with this conversation is about some about location it's not about number games it's not about player safety because I think that both sides have safety in their minds I think Major League Baseball what people said they were Major League Baseball went too far in their safety protocols I don't know that going too far in safety protocols is something that can exist in the year twenty twenty but be that as it may this is always about money this is what this has come down to is money this is not progress and I'm not saying that the players should bend to the will of the owners I'm not saying that at all I don't see very much in this M. L. B. P. a proposal that I disagree with more games awesome starting on June thirtieth sweet players can opt out if they don't feel safe that's just basic fairness and being a human being and even the money thing that's fine I I don't I don't have a problem with anything in the player's proposal my only problem is that it's not getting us closer to baseball and I I think we're we're getting to the point now where it does not matter who's to blame it does not matter you know we were are you you know before Blake's now it was on the owners and they shifted the players out back it doesn't matter anymore we're past the point of pointing fingers it's are you gonna play baseball or are you not because for a lot of people if they're not we're out that's it you can look at all a lot of different statistics and I just pulled up one poll that Gallup has put together over you know the history of baseball it took you know we always talk about how McGwire and Sosa save baseball right after the ninety four strike but really it took ten years after that for baseball to supplant basketball in terms of the percentage of people who view that as their favorite sport it's not the only metric but it it it's one that I I pulled up last night it took baseball baseball for ever had been you know obviously both far behind football but for a very long period of time I've been tell about nineteen ninety four if you ask people what their favorite sport is more of them would say baseball the basketball then the strike happened and what to the NBA's credit they had Michael Jordan and then those numbers kind of got flipped and then ninety eight happens Major League Baseball on a better trajectory by two thousand and eight based more people say baseball as their favorite sport than basketball and now it's started to trend back the other way now you could look at television ratings and and revenue and social media and all this stuff and say that basketball is already more popular it damned baseball and it's certainly more nationally relevant but just because my whole point here is that baseball always banks on this America's pastime romanticism that we have about baseball that we want so badly for it to come back and we talk about I remember opening day and we're all talking and lamenting on you know how special this date is supposed to be opening date for the major league season and we didn't get it and how bummed we worry about that there is there is a level of love for baseball that is uncommon to any other sport even if you like football you don't I just don't think people love football the way they love baseball now more people would view football as their favorite sport and football is more popular than baseball but the love that baseball fans have for baseball is uncommon to any other sport and they have throughout much of their history they have banked on that that people will come back because they love baseball it's what the game they grew up playing for many of us it's a first for we were introduced to all that kind of stuff they always bank on that twenty twenty is unique twenty twenty is not like any other time in any of our lifetimes they cannot bank on that romanticism anymore because if baseball doesn't come back there are trends in place that say not only will the NBA surpass it in certain things like being somebody's favorite sport or continue to separate themselves from baseball but if you look at trends soccer is becoming more and more popular and in this country soccer is a summer sport the landscape in sports both participating and watching is too crowded for baseball to bank on that love that romanticism surrounding baseball with this not with this not with the unemployment rate where it is now with the number of people who are going with the number of people dealing with hard times now with the number of businesses that are never going to reopen all this kind of stuff a squabble over money plus how crowded the landscape is if it took ten years for baseball to get back what they had lost I guess fourteen years so four years after the strike McGwire and Sosa happened ten years after that baseball really takes back its spot in the in the pantheon of sport in this country K. they don't have there's another decade basketball's gonna be way ahead of them soccer is going to pass them and it is there you know we're all pretty well rounded individuals I would say in terms of sports we like but the thing about the ones that you're really into is there I now Froome analog in our country right you know we talk about the four majors in hockey being one look at the numbers with hockey it's not really the four majors it's the three and then it then those hockey is there enough room for baseball to make their way back in a get back what they will lose if they don't play and I don't think you I don't think they can and now baseball well plugged in well regarded baseball people are saying the doomsday clock is ticking this is not you know alarmist behavior this is not a hot take Corey this is a real the clock is ticking and if they cannot get it done baseball will never recover at least not to the extent that they did after the strike they're just too many factors against it and sitting here on my I don't feel like we're closer to baseball beat just because the players propose something we're not closer we didn't make progress last night the one issue that they disagree on is the thing that's going to keep this thing drag dragging out for week four more weeks and it's money and in twenty twenty that's just the worst look you could possibly have and some people never forgiven for it five two two nine eight seven to take of thoughts on that coming up next joined by Roland Varga H. lance what do we learn did we learn anything and also is Lance Armstrong.

"All you really should get more time with your kids this site wall I'm a single dad and I have the kids all the time so well I very much enjoy having three or four additional hours with them like I feel like and and my kids will attest to this I think we're we're good with the balance we struck up how much dad is hanging now in participating I think that they're good for the three hour like going to your talk show dad Mike where we're good so but glad to be back I got my friend a broadcast partner Roland Varga issues going to join me in the next segment I don't know about you guys I I was kinda into the lance documentary and blame it on you know live sports or whatever and and maybe that's part of the contribute by I thought it was it was worth a watch I just don't know how much we learned from it all right and I'll I'll say this I know we didn't learn as much about that whole Lance Armstrong thing is we learned with Michael Jordan and maybe that was because I came in late in the second three peat and I was around for the entire lance thing and so I kinda knew a lot of it but there are there were some things I I thought it was that was interesting I I thought that there were also parallels between Michael Jordan and lance Armstrong not a ton but there was one in particular that I kind of saw that China is similar to Michael Jordan or any athlete that at any time and I know lance Armstrong is is what chemically enhanced I get I get that but I'm just saying the mind set of arguably the greatest athlete in a sport I think there's some common traits so want to get into that discussion with rolling coming up in the next segment we'll talk about the NBA's return to play plan we don't know everything yet we should know on Thursday when the board of governors approved this thing what exactly it's going to look like down in Orlando but we know some things that we least know what white proposal has momentum so get into that coming up at the bottom of the hour if you want to weigh in five two two nine eight seven two love to hear from you after not hearing from you I'm on it for a week so feel free to fire away whatever's on your mind I just talked about the match in now is a full like we could go and I like I don't care I want to talk about it so whatever's on your mind feel free to give me a shout at five two two nine eight seven two and then there's baseball and then there's baseball I it has not gotten any better for baseball after the owners made a proposal to players switch in the player's minds would I.

"You would like to check it out and look I know these guys I personally have good relationships with the guys who have been around for awhile and certainly that plays a role in the way I feel but I it's to the point that I just made with Benny and with the Benedetto I just think these guys aren't in that kind of position right these are and I know that you know forgive me they don't like to use this this phrase but they're minor league athletes okay they're not playing at the top tier of their sport and I know soccer's built if differently and everything like that in the switchbacks operate in a very different way than other minor league sports do because they're the ones paying the players they only get a few players from the rapids but they are for all intents and purposes minor league athletes and we deal with what has happened to baseball that very public thing which is kind of led it to everything we're saying with the potential and of the vibes as we know them because the initial push was hate you're not playing your minor league players well enough you're not giving them good enough working conditions something has to change rob Manfred and unfortunately he did the not totally surprising thing and say okay I'll do this but I'm going to shrink the player pool by a power of axe and that's the unfortunate side of it but that's what it all started with is the fact that many athletes that don't play at the top wrong aren't at the top rung of their sport do not get paid very well and that makes a lot of sense it right you know the switchbacks in other leagues other teams in the USL championship or not printing money they're not rolling in dough necessarily there for in sports case small business so I'm not saying that these these clubs are holding out and have a ton of money that they could just throw out the players but the players need to be compensated fairly for the work they're putting in even though we know that it's not at the same level as you would pay someone playing in MLS M. for right now the good news is it's not really contentious yet as Vinny mention the players are being very smart about this I'm like if we compared to Major League Baseball right the owners got out on the players I made the players have to react and the players look like the bad guys with Blake Snell opened his mouth these players in the USL are doing the right thing by them and saying all right let's let's get United here let's be active on social media let's get out in front of this and let's get people on our side let people know our story our plight what we're trying to fight for and why that is right and now if the U. S. championship and there's no indication right now that this is going to turn ugly both sides are having productive conversations and are respecting each other but if it were ever to turn ugly then because the players got out of it and it beforehand and they're very United and very clear and concise about what they're asking for they have public perception on their side and that's always part of a labor negotiation to be out first and to get the court of public opinion on your side Amanda hello I just yesterday on my Instagram I got alert that I had a memory you know how Facebook and I guess Twitter does it too but you know that how they alert you of your memories this was your post one year ago it was a poster of picture of myself in my broadcast partner Roland Varga H. talk about the four corners Cup that was new the all the teams Phoenix rising our we're all Salt Lake the switchbacks New Mexico United all playing for four corners Cup man I miss calling those games and I know many of you out there missing going to those matches so I hope it hope they figure out a way but I'm I'm with Vinnie I just don't you know we've been talking a lot about the vibes but the switchbacks are different but also they're not different you know in the sense.

"The resistible to people for the same reason you can pretty much only worked at a carnival is for just prove to himself he has no shame it's called here's your host Ryan Kaufman welcome in third hour of the show third hour of our virtual draft and I gotta say if we can pull this off with only what one gas getting disconnected so far pretty good not that I ever believe that the NFL general managers that were complaining had any reason to but ours is gone pretty well let's get you updated we won't of course do what's driving the show because what's driving the show is this draft so just update you where we're at right now a no surprises in the top five borough young who dot words and talk the talk of I. Lola thanks thank you to Dylan Scott of channel five for picking for the giants Josh Appel from sports USA media picking for the dolphins than we had so cal Dave call in and pick Isaiah Simmons for the LA Chargers Josh Kline our friend from the right report pick Derrick brown from Auburn at number seven I was on the clock for both the cardinals and the jags I took Giedroyc wills the tackle from Alabama to protect Kyler Murray and then I said the jags have their new face of the franchise in Justin Herbert at number nine Jeff Bennett the head coach of the Colorado College women's soccer team jumped aboard and took Andrew Thomas the tackle out of Georgia he was followed up by Steven Rodriguez the host of believe in New York football on the believe podcast network he wasn't going to let it tackle slip by he took my car I backed in and that was a rap for that top four group of tackles Ben Aaron came in with this first of two picks for the raiders he took CD lamb out of Oklahoma I was on the clock for the forty Niners into Jerry Judy mark Moses by Fran from down in Florida host to the mark Moses Moses show on sports radio fifteen sixty he went outside the box he said everything is about Brady now and he took Jonathan Taylor out of Wisconsin with the fourteenth pick we put the vote to you for the Denver Broncos and you ended up with the same guy that has been mocked to the Broncos pretty much all along and I see I have failed miserably in trying to convince you otherwise you guys took Henry Ruggs the third out of Alabama tug Cowart from Atlanta sports acts came in with CJ Henderson the quarterback from Florida my brother Ethan when a little bit off the board a just a little bit in terms of the mock drafts but Brandon I upped the wide receiver from Arizona state figures to go in the first round tonight all right he likes is the body type for Iraq with that cowboys team to complement the Amari Cooper then Josh Appel came back in let me know that Josh Jones the tackle out of Houston profiles much better as a right tackle that works because he he has the dolphins taking a left handed quarterback so Josh Jones the tackle out of Houston it was pick eighteen and before the top of the hour we had the Erin with the second of two picks pake AJ Terrell the cornerback out of Clemson rejoins his former teammate Cleveland feral I was taken last year so pretty good couple of picks for the raiders and then at twenty I was back on the clock for the jags and I said Kristian Fulton bass corner on the board at number twenty I'm gonna take him now we're into the third and final hour a manga my guess Matt Pauly our old friend here Carl springs will join me to pick for the Packers because that's who covers now we will also have it Davey Hudson the host of believe it tightens on a little bit later to talk about Tennessee my good buddy and broadcast partner Roland Varga H. later this hour as wealth picking for the ravens well I have Josh Appel again well I've J. gate in here and just about five or ten minutes and we got a lot of teams open here on the back end so if you're listening and you would like to pay for the Vikings the saints the Seahawks or the forty Niners the opportunity is open for you at five two two nine eight seven two but the eagles are up right now and joining me to pick for his beloved Philadelphia Eagles is somebody that I miss dearly these days we are just getting going as a pretty good team him as my producer but excited to have back on the show Mr just live and winger named Josiah I miss you buddy how are you doing I mean you Ryan I'm doing pretty well All Things Considered I'm highlighting all the insider all raw plugging along on the how do you feel about the way things have gone so far you've been listening you've been seeing these pics what sticks out to you so far well I would try that Jonathan Taylor went so early I had at the end of the first round it's that and then all four tackles were gone before the Broncos were able to take that was surprising to me as well if you look at your Philadelphia Eagles of course they are gone in over the Dallas Cowboys last year Carson Wentz supposedly healthy if you had to pick out two or three of the biggest needs for the eagles what would you pick our wide receiver and defensive back so that's where I receiver and defensive back what we all right so that leads us into we've had rugs we've had Judy we've had lamb all go off the board we on the defensive side we've had AJ Terrell and Christian Fulton and CJ Henderson I have heard that the eagles are expected to be very busy tonight maybe moving up but they have to stay at twenty one Josiah who do they select with the twenty first pick with the twenty third pick the eagles select Justin Jefferson I think love is there we love it as eagles fans he's a perfect fit for our I love it we'll go Justin Jefferson wide receiver out of LSU a lot of people including Mel Kuiper have the right the Broncos taking Jefferson so it's six picks later the eagles can get I'm I'm sure they'll be ecstatic I know you've been a big campaigner for Justin Peters to get employment elsewhere but it looks like maybe Trent Williams could be coming to the eagles did you read those reports today I did I would be very excited for that the report is that we have a lot of problems with Andre Dillard right now and we don't really trust him on the left the left tackle spot no if we could get prince William that would be a ninety six we'll see what they do tonight Philadelphia Eagles selecting Justin Jefferson the wide receiver out of LSU I thank you Josiah feel free to text me tonight and I enjoyed the draft you're sure you do all right bye Josiah's I pretty sure he will be my producer again once all of this stuff is settled but just Jefferson going twenty one overall to the eagles JKT will be joining me in just a couple of minutes I want to first get to the Minnesota Vikings and the Minnesota Vikings have an interesting situation they're in they're good football team they've had potentially some guys fall a little bit and I think that the Vikings are in a position where they can go best player available now they did trade stuff on decks so where do you possibly the Minnesota the Vikings go Jake's waiting on the line so I got to be decisive here **** I'll actually I can speak I mean I feel like couldn't they use someone like a divine chem lawn but he's a tackle how well AJ I've ever been NASA from Iowa let's take him at twenty two Vikings could use a pass rusher so let's not let's do that and without further ado let's bring in one half of the outstanding sports team at channel five I J. gated is my guest first and foremost Jake thoughts and prayers all right but I'm telling you Gronk was never going to play for the patriots and he was not going to be a huge impact I too as big of an impact is people think he's going to be in Tampa do you agree I do agree and it took me a while you're never gonna play New England that like that was never going to happen again because Tom Brady left but I do think he was undervalued by New England thanks for trump pick for the best tight end in NFL history is a little pathetic I think they should have been able to get if you look at the line straight two years ago I first a second bird rock in a second that shows his his ability now I was reading this my friends the past you know twenty four forty eight hours you know yes he hasn't played for a year but at the same time you usually a hundred like basically as healthy as you can get by from using intrusion stillness like from from the this year will couple years ago personally you never gonna play the New England we should've gone higher draft pick I think the second round thank which will lead into what what we're about to talk about I think a second round pick for Gronk paired with like a fifth rounder sixty rounder with rock and and did that with doing good of god but instead they settled for fourth got rid of them and that's how how what all went down so I'm how do you I hate it I mean obviously to see Gronk go to Tampa it's it's gotta hurt a little bit but you get a fourth round pick back right bill Belichick weaves magic with those so I given the way that this draft is gone and just given the way that you're expecting this to go Jordan was on the board I'm just telling you Jordan love is still available if our reporter back is available will the patriots pounce regardless of which quarterback my question yes okay are we are we picking at twenty three or we able to move up in the draft well let well let me ask you because for this you're you're staying where you are and Jordan love is on the board but let's put that aside for a second okay how might help who who has to fall and how far for the patriots to try to move up and grab somebody she was just thirteen or fifteen I think off fifteen with the Broncos or whoever the Broncos trade would begin Juni because I think they're gonna trade up to thirteen or eleven to get you here thirteen or ten but I think thirteen with forty Niners fifteen for whatever the Broncos trade with which probably might be the proud that they end up going to ten any still into is sitting there if you graph and same thing with Justin Herbert I think those are the two guys that are definitely grab you I think it's going to be gone in my personal opinion I think he's going to sunny San Diego are sunny LA excuse me sorry and the exam with sandy I had to play for the Chargers I think she was gonna drop at my end doesn't wrap him that went five or whatever it was I do not think he treats are in love with Jordan love I think if if you were there the grabbing of a thirteen or fifteen if not they're actually in my personal opinion trading out of the first round so this kind of need to do next question I don't think they St tickets twenty three I think it is getting to and dropping up warm bust the reason I say that is this I think there's a big gap between the first and third round picks is over a hundred I think.
