I remember being when you're in the stadium though For college football. You're watching the bands. I don't have a problem. I don't have a problem. It's what i'm the whole atmosphere day the. Nfl run off to locker room and fifteen minutes. Later we're kicking off third quarter. I've always college football halftime or a half an hour long over half an hour there. You could watch entire episode ted. Last halftime rich is what i prefer to do. I often wonder why the nfl halftime was so short. Like there's been times. I've been at home watching the game.

I'm about to four hours game day morning. The draft is like thon days right so doing this halftime. I would just go on the air and just say okay. My analyst will talk. And then i'll just chit chat a little bit and then my other adults talk and then my other and they're like you gotta go. You gotta go to break like you say one word they say five words the other guy says five words that you say five words going to commercial break if you do any more than one five five five. We're screwed that's the way it. Nfl halftime shows in college football. It's like pop up an amount. Due and steve right rich the wonder though with those fifteen minutes. How are they even able to get. I'd say one hundred people into the locker room and then making judgments only make any adjustment. You should see what they do for the super bowl.

"You know right zebra or something like that and and so everybody knows it And he looked at me. Like i was crazy and i suppose i was but I just i thought that would just be more convenient and easier for guys to do it. Same with gruden and tampa. Yeah it doesn't make too much then let everybody else learn. What the hell that means. You just say the word zebra you know what it means and everybody knows it means. Let's go as opposed. Yeah because that's apparently one of the things just in fields is yet to be able to do. Is the album berthold told us is to is to absorb the play call and address each member in the huddle you know an address each member in the huddle for whatever that part of the play call is assigned to Like andy don't you know. Listen listen to this rich. So i when i was with coach holmgren. We have those speakers in our in our ear by the time he finished with the play. Call in my ear. I i had a hard time. Remembering what the damn formation was started the whole play in particular and i walk into the huddle. I don't know if you remember the nfl. Fill stuff with chris simms. When he'd step into the huddle and jon gruden was calling the play. Exactly the same thing. Jon gruden would pull off a fifteen word play and by the time chris was ready to call it. He couldn't remember what the formation was and we get yelled out on on nfl films. Everybody was a running joke with everybody. Brad johnson and that crew. Yeah it was It it makes some comedy. But you're exactly right. That is something and being under center. That's another big thing. These kids are never under center. And you're going to have to be in the nfl because it has to be physical and you gotta get yard sometime. Not just sit back there in the gun and handed off five yards deep. Send my best sir. To paul burmeister have a great time in the rose. Bowl calling hawaii. Ucla on westwood. One ryan leaf. You take care. I appreciate it. Also I heard the jameis winston stuff.

"Some alex grinch has always been really good at and getting his players to do so It it's going to be tough for a team to get past the sooner team but if there's one team that can do it rich i it's it's iowa state. I think they are the the the next team there. Texas i think is the seven and five team under sark in year one. So by the way ryan leaf. I saw how you broke down the big twelve on your twitter account seven and five for texas seven and really you believe that. Yeah i do. I just think they are. I mean sam allender you know was he was the reason why they were able to get to eight. Nine wins every year and without him and breaking in somebody new in a new system with the new no identity. Really i think it in texas Yeah i think that this could be seven and five team. I mean if they you know. I've got no you arguments with with some longhorn homers around them. Getting more than that seven wins. I think i got a few steak. Dinners on it. The season i got him settled five all right before. I let you go rhino. A little bit in the nfl because the conversation a involving justin fields and whatever Might happen with trae. Lanson jimmy garoppolo up in santa clara california. That's the annual conversation of. Do you throw your top drafted quarterback in the deep end of the pool. If you don't have to obviously jacksonville and the jets have to obviously back in your day. The chargers kind of had to write and so with you but the concept of learning on the side to see and watch and mature and soak in as opposed to just throwing them in like Justin herbert got thrown in albeit. The circumstances were different. What's your stance on all of that ryan leaf. I feel like the players that are coming out of college are much better prepared to handle. What the nfl showing them specifically because of the offenses that are being run and the ability for head coaches and offensive coordinators to shape their game. Plans around what quarterbacks do best back in my day. Even as back as recently as jared goff and his rookie year with jeff fisher jeff. I just wasn't willing to bend. Towards what share goff was great at and we saw the product on the football field. When sean mcvay came in he really understood. What made jared goff great and they apply that and got themselves to a super bowl. I think coaches do that now. If i'm if i'm a team out there i wanna follow in the footsteps of what patrick mahomes did. When you have a reliable veteran quarterback who can get you to where you need to get to And not have to worry about someone breaking somebody in then you go about it that way. It's i think it's a perfect opportunity for san francisco and trae lance to let him sit behind a a capable quarterback who's been to a super bowl jimmy garoppolo differences. Does kyle shanahan believe that. This is the player that separates the san francisco. Forty niners from winning that super bowl. Two years ago from what jimmy garoppolo can do not overthrow the wide open. Receiver for the touchdown. That would win. An if he believes that and trae lamp is going to be in the game from day. One it just. That's just how it's going to be now for talking about chicago adjusted fields. I don't know how good this chicago bears. Team is And i do think that justin feels is going to have his Hiccups along the way. But he's the most dynamic player of the quarterbacks. I just feel like andy. Dalton's probably the answer there early on but i wouldn't but but matinees gotta gotta keep his job and the only way for him to keep. His job is to put the best possible playoff player out there to make plays where regardless of what that looks like and then has to be justin field. So i'd started from day one. Yeah i i. I agree with you on that ryan leaf and the one thing. I would say that college football quarterbacks don't appear to be prepared for in the nfl because the college football world does not prepare them for it while i do agree with you about the offenses in the schemes coming in is the is the the mechanism to call the play. Like in the pros. They're not holding up. Photographs of scott van pelt. And you know like flag of ireland. A you know a hammer you know. And then and then having four other guys do you know hand signals and semaphore and that's the thing that drives me a little bit nuts about college football. These days is everybody gets lined up and it looks like they're about to snap it but then they all stand up and all of them look to the sideline and then they all look back and then now they know what play to be called. Is that because college football coaches. Don't think the kids have the ability or they're just such control freaks. That's the way they want to do it. Like because i if i'm a college football coach. I kid that. I can say. I'm sending to the nfl as a quarterback fully ready to call a twelve word. Play call because he knows who he's addressing it to. I i get every single five star recruit at that position. In my estimation i i agree with you. I think that there's probably that where in terms of optimization. But i also think in terms of college coaches feel like this speeds things up and they wanna run as many plays as possible in the nfl. They wanna run plenty of place but they want to run effective place when we like college. Football practice now. It doesn't matter what the play does. It could be a complete bust of a plight. They wanna get it on film and they're gonna coach it up in the film room. They're not gonna coach it up out on the field. Necessarily they want to run as many places they can. So yeah that's a. That's a big difference for these guys when they make the job. I'm also a and i've been this way. Ever since i had to deal with with mike holmgren calling plays in seattle. I asked him one time. Why can't we just call this. Play like Boomerang instead of x out wise wise theme zebra and banana. Why why can't we just call this play..

What in the world is going to look like in this. Rams offense what is gonna be in los angeles he had a great chat with matthew stafford and essentially. I'll repeat it later on the concept is what if you've played in the nfl for twelve years. What if you played in the nfl for as long as matthew stafford's been playing in the nfl right. What if matthew stafford's been around as long as he's been around and he still doesn't know just how good he is in the nfl. I haven't had to run game. Hasn't had the winning as an ad that extensive playoff experience good point at got the team and now he's here in los angeles. We assume he's got the team and then everyone's like well. The team is the team. But do they really have the quarterback in every single person. I talk to here in los angeles california every single one that knows the rams or has any inside on the ramps anybody who also has any insight on the nfl says man how good this guy is and how they can't understand how detroit could not win with guy this good at this position and he's got a heart get a big heart. That kid's got. I think kid but man got a great. He's here in los angeles.

Welcome in a couple of minutes ago. I finished interviewing a very very special guest Ryan Leaf a guy who in case somehow you don't know who he is. He's a bountiful quarterback. He was drafted number two in the NFL draft literally right behind Peyton Manning incredibly talented and I I have really come to admire the guy the more I walk in the where I listen how he talks and his authenticity his realness is honesty and he's very very kind there a couple of moments in the interview where I asked a question moment. Oh I should have said that I should have thought differently and he was incredibly kind and gracious and I hope I wasn't too harsh actually and I gotta say man. He's the best. He's so kind off camera behind the scenes as well. And so I got nothing else to say wage. Can't recommend it enough. He just recently started a YouTube show called The Ryan Daley show and I just I think it's wonderful human being so without further Ado enjoy my conversation with Ryan Leaf Ryan Leaf. Good morning.

Midnight Patriot, nation welcome to NFL. Mid Nitrates it is you boy spartan here with the the ever ever pot and flaming premix A good to have you as D to ultra. Sports nerds. In specifically football cards. On the end on the. Patriot staff. Phoenix tonight decided that we were actually GonNa do kind of a deep dive into what is pissing us off most about NFL and. Most pro sports in general to be quite honest. But we're GONNA focus on the NFL in this particular case because. Both Phoenix, myself have. A long history of both fandom and and. Playing Sports, we have a unique appreciation of what it takes. More it doesn't and how it is devolved into the into this shit show that it is. Just, we're just GONNA go from there. So Phoenix you had you had some thoughts that you wanted to start with go ahead. Well specifically. I I have a major gripe with the NFL in general. Being more politicized. And the. Let's End Racism. Okay, I get my left. Black lives matter. No sorry. They do and I agree with the message just not the manor which is being delivered. We've said that before on the organization go ahead. Exactly. All of a sudden you know we have a organization. That's Through much. Yup You can't do this. You know we have this. AFOREMENTIONED SCAMMED EMMA GOING ON. You can't do this. You can't do this. Well Yeah you can't. Okay. And then we have the social unrest of the nation being thrown into. A sporting. Venues. that. For All intents purposes let's call it. What is it's an escape. It allows us the viewer. Fan. That three four hours. Sunday evening Monday night whatever that. It gives us that escape from eager live love get up go to work and deal with people you come home you deal with cranky wife and kids don't listen dog that Shit's in your shoes. You've taken that away. And now have made it. Well we got to get on board with this. Well, we're relevant to. We're a large. Organization we goner? A multitude of platforms. That we have viewership. There any given? Day that we have competition So now we're going to. Paint messages in the end. We're going to have. Athletes will we're going to kneel to show solidarity. I got a huge problem with that and for our listeners I'm sure you have your own platforms as well. The American flag comes I stand for Gore country you back your country everything else second berry period. That's my thought on that. That's the way it is. Unfortunately when. The NFL NBA MLB hockey underwater basket weaving has become politicized in what we have to show solidarity with this. I have a question. Are you showing solidarity four? Message. Or are you As the NFL did let's put. The name of a known fell one on a helmet. Let's. Let's praise this guy because shot back when a an. Amplifier point in accused rapists. Is someone with a warning active warrants? For Rape Yes. So here in my eternal gripe with this, that will probably go down in flames just like the rest of them. Why are we? In fact. Standing behind. Someone. WHO BREAKS THE LAW? WHO does walk. Yes. They didn't listen. They got shot in the back whatever. House we say. Extenuating circumstances came to be that this ended up how that was. We have to stand behind this person as a form of. Instead of. Waiting, for all the facts that come out be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. And then move forward from there. Well. That's the real question. Isn't it is is you know? All we've seen is what has been allowed to be released. Okay I mean look I think in his thing I agree with everything you just said save one thing. Okay. I don't think demand deserve to be shot seven times point blank in the back now. Having said that. He has an active warrant for his arrest, what he should not have done to prevent that whole situation was to surrender. Get handcuffed and be taken into to engage whatever process there is. Okay, you don't fight cops in the street if you do. You mess with the bull, you get the horns. Okay. He's admitted he was armed. He's admitted he was going for a different arm- armament. Okay. And what do we expect the COPS to die? I don't think so you know I'm. In the eyes of them, that's probably what they're saying. Well. Preserved by life fuck yours. Well exactly. The COP Exactly and and my my attitude would be y is either one wrong as far as you know, one one has a duty to behave professionally the other has a duty to follow the law. Or face the consequences you know it would have saved him from getting shot in the back if he had stopped if he turned around if he'd Toronto. Surrendered Okay Understand that I understand the Warren has has since been vacated, but that's beside the point. When a COP's his I warrant for your arrest I mean you're supposed to do is say what am I being arrested for? Okay I'll go peacefully ears might whereas my lawyer yeah. Instead, of no fuck you fight you tooth and nail, and if get away up the war still there, but you don't have me. Right. Exactly. Exactly and you know I got I got I got a I. got a interject because you know. My personal opinion is if you probably agree Is this. Cancer of case. started. It may have it may have had other sources. Okay. But its primary. Protagonist, in growth factor was Colin. Kaepernick a few years ago and I don't say that in a flattering manner. Okay. I've said it before the my opinion that Colin Kaepernick is the biggest fraud on the planet as pertains to the NFL. At least Ryan leaves when he signed what Leash Langley, when he signed, he knew he was shit approved the wish she had any faded off politely into the sunset because he saw a gay. young just tell the story as I. Recall it and you you you feel free to chime in when you. When when you when you if I'm off base okay. A lot of people don't remember this but you and I as King's football and many things in life have a have a memory quite a bit longer than than your average goldfish. Okay? I remember watching the first incidents of Cabernet court on code kneeling and he wasn't fucking Neil. He had just had an argument with his with with the head coach and I don't think it was Kelly. It may have been horrible. But he had the yard, the head, the argument with Joe it was horrible wasn't horrible yet. So out of you probably saw the clip to you can't find it now because it's Youtube everywhere else. He had he had A. Verbal altercation with Harbhajan and I can only assume in what we were told. You know later was that harbaugh. told him. No you're not starting a colon Cabernet got very unprofessional and like the diva quarterback that he is. Turn Turnhill stomped over to the bench slammed his helmet down in plop disaster down on the bench now by sheer and toll coincidence. Anthem had just started. The anthem it just started when that HAP-. ACI. I know you remember this is I think you and I talked about this at the time that it happened because we were mocking him because when I weren't weren't quarterbacks when we played the game and we know what divas they are even princesses, they are this. If you remember and I know you do espn headlines a couple of days. Later words were that Colin Kaepernick was going to be fine. Substantially for multiple instances of unprofessional conduct conduct deleterious to the team. Leading up to the altercation with harbaugh that happened where he plops his ass on the bench you remember that ideas that. Dakhla and it was it was post practice I. Believe I want a That later that week that a reporter asked him. About the state of the fines and Based on his lip based on. Let's just call it what it was temper Tantrum. Okay. And that's when Cabernet sold all this bullshit about he was doing it in protest etcetera etcetera and he played the race card, which we all know the press eats up hook line and sinker and never ever questioned. Ever On. Me It came across and partner Jackie No, you're good. The the instance of which we are discussing out my first thought on that was yes it's a temper tantrum and I'm about to be busted for having a temper tantrum. So allow me to make up some juicy. To Garner more attention to the fact that. This is happening to be Gimme Gimme. GimMe and I lost my starting spot. Well, that's the that's the point I'm making. He played the race card to avoid fight. For on professional conduct and he was he was outright given a past. I don't think he ever actually even actually got find something that was overlooked too is that is that nick is not a person of color is really not us he is a multi-racial okay and part of that find that he was going to get for unprofessional conduct was calling somebody else on the field the N. Word back can't say here because quite frankly it's feds even and number two I don't WanNa get show you monetize but that said that was part of that that was part of the fine to be levied. The fine was vacated. Okay. Because he was successful, you successfully played the race card and got out. Okay and this whole shift started this snowball at that point. as we as we all know you know he was he was basically the the the face man for chip. Kelly's offense that you know while short term short term effective was absolutely not sustainable. Okay. We all know that. And you combine that with the fact that the guy had. Just over just under a shooting just over sixty percent for completion rate. Even in that offense at his best day, he was a mediocre quarterback surrounded by a bunch of very talented people. Okay. So now it has become the fact that you know this whole narrative has has escalated by people that that know nothing about the actual game because. Football is simple. It's not easy, but it's simple. Is. The ultimate meritocracy. Okay talent hard work equals success. Okay there's a lot of guys. We can probably point him out on the field you and I. There's a lot of guys that that. That just simply outworked their competition to get where they are I'll give you. I'll give you one prime example and right now they call him the goat Tom. De. Tom. Brady was drafted was I can remember he was drafted. He was I. Don't think he was Mr irrelevant. But he was real close. He was the very bottom. Yes. Six he was very close to the very end of end of the draft in and he is he outworked is is competition. Now granted drew bledsoe. If people can remember back set for was not a very good quarterback anyways. He was only borderline better than Ryan Leaf and he went down Tom Brady took over in the rest as they say district but. No? One ever questioned, Tom? Brady's work ethic in those dynasty years in in in New England. Okay. Because he outworked he, he worked his ass off. Yes he was talented. Yes. He's physically gifted but that plus hardwork dedication to his craft turned into in the in the the hardware for the hand so to speak. and. anyways back to my point about Cabernet. All, these people talking about how Catherine doesn't have a job because he's bad for business or half rights, they're only half rice. Now I posted this to the page I know you read you probably it is I. Think I read this week we went to this is from ESPN DOT COM itself. Okay. ESPN DOT. com. The actual date this was published as March twentieth two, thousand seventeen. By their staff writer Kevin Seaford. and. I am just going to read it. I'm. GonNa. I'M GONNA. Try to read the whole thing. I'm trying Doug only try to read the parts that are relevant. But those those listening. If you go to our face, a bitch facebook dot com slash midnight patriots. You'll be able to find this article and we shared it the title of it is calling Kabir Knicks based problem performance. Politics. Day It starts off real simple. So Don't over think why Colin Kaepernick is still a free age simply put years have passed since he was ineffective quarterback he's twenty nine years old has succeeded in an unsustainable scheme as part of a well populated group of former starters who also remain available at as this week began now getting that was march twenty, twenty, seventeen. So they were in free agents. Okay. Let's. Let's move on here. It's blamed Colin Kaepernick's unemployment on his protest is to misread the way NFL teams make personnel decisions. that. I don't think there's any more true statement on Earth. Do you I? MEAN THAT'S Yeah. So it goes on protests where does say at any type of business that if you have lackluster performance, did you are guaranteed two hundred million dollar job? Number One and two I was GONNA say there have been divas troublemakers in the NFL before? Okay and Kim's and? Lewis Terrell on. You know. List goes on and on. And let's not forget the NFL is the lead cut an outright banned ray rice running back from the Ravens for domestic violence. Okay. Before he was convicted. Suspended A. Peterson for disciplining his child. Yeah for banking hit saw. Yeah. Okay for spanking his own child. Okay. So now they put criminals names on their helmet. so by but I digress I digress let's get back to the article. Just to just to go just to go. Teams are swayed I by players potential or lack thereof to help them win protest or not kapernick would be under contract. Now, if he had demonstrable if he had played demonstrably better in recent years. Let's look closer at where capper nick is as a quarterback and why that has left him sitting in a group that also includes fellow free agents, Jay Cutler Josh mccown Ryan Fitzpatrick and Robert Griffin the third. Again keep in mind. This is from shelvin teachings of this is three years ago. Okay. But. It goes on to some of the reason I liked this 'cause this is based on facts not just you know a bunch of race baiting bullshit. Kapernick grid NFL success came as part of the San Francisco Forty niners read Options Skiing Twenty, twelve to twenty four. In those three years, he rushed for Fifteen, hundred, seventy, eight yards which okay. I will give credit that impressive gudgeon impressive number. For. More than any other quarterback with the exception of Rush Russell Wilson Cam Newton so let's just call it what it is. He was third rushing quarterback against. It breath. Okay. I will not fall the net. His. Success. He threw more than twice as many touchdown passes interceptions helped him compile eighth best time quarterback rating in the NFL seventy point to over that period. But even then capper nick was one of the lease most. Least Accurate quarterbacks is sixty point one completion percentage ranked twenty third in the NFL and has percentage of off target throws judged on video by espn stats and information ranked eighteen. So. Based on just the stats alone he was a middle of the pack quarterback middle of the pack. Does that mean that he's better than half the other guys absolutely does that mean that that you know the drama he brings? Outweighs his skills is still setting the money in the monetary investment probably. Okay I agree or disagree just on that statement there. I would agree that yeah, he's a middle of the road quarterback. He had some skill. At. That position. That offense. You're right. Would it work somewhere else probably not but that's Changing teams, you learned their offensive scheme you learn what they do best blend yourself into that and you become part of the team not a one man show. that. I, mean you'd have to agree that most had coaches that have half a brain would go sixty, four, sixty point one completion percentage. even if you're even if you're going to do A. A bootleg offense even if you're going to do a boot offense. Play I can. Still going to have to be better than sixty point one. Periods I mean just entered discussion. Quarter, you're talking college level quarterback. Even if you're on a naked, do either one side, you're still depending on receivers tied ends backs to be open at some point that you can actually say, Hey, he's opened easel bewitched of the two weevils need a cheese her who exactly exactly union able to identify and hit those targets or at least give your guys in a position to succeed you know. I'd like to. Bring to Light I. Not Very long after capital started his quest masqueraded by some of justice whatever you WANNA call it only because he got in my mind and correct me if I'm wrong, he got busted out period. That's just the way it is you through Tantrum he got his ass busted will now I gotta cover with this to cover that with this, and then all of a sudden we have one big lie that snowball into the entire solstice thing that's going on currently. You're. Going to look they had to go. He ended up in Washington. In front of US rest. Explaining his side of everything that goes on great. Denver Broncos of whom I am a fan. I it. Does not get into that because. Pirate about that right. That's ultimate digression. Go ahead, John. elway. It had in fact offer Catholic before your contract. said. Hey. COMPLA-. Can come down because it wasn't enough money. Wait a minute. Let's look at your stats a sixty sixty point something or other completion percentage. Yes. You had fifteen hundred yards rushing, which as we've discussed is pretty phenomenal quarterback save. Russell. Cam. Newton. Maybe rg three hundred healthy. That's stretching it buttle throw it in there. Anyway. I. Really. Wanted to see if capital could be plugged into that offense and sell. Well, that's the that's the real trick. Isn't it? I mean? End and let's be clear. He turned it down because the salary was too low, not the money. Or maybe remember correctly, he turned it down because John elway wanted to load the one at the loaded up with incentives and say, okay, you exceed this mark you get ex you this you get what we go to the playoffs and when you get Z. Experience Cetera so wasn't of excellent. Yeah. But exactly to perform at your very best as cut your in the NFL, they don't take ship nothing while the that's when the NFL stands for not for lofts. That and let's be honest. It was not only. Did he had he had to meet performance criteria he had to me behavior criteria, EXAC? elway and the broncos weren't going to stand for this s J. W. S. J. W. Crap. That he's pulling. So let's go back to the article real quick. It'll it'll. It'll really start driving the point home. Okay. So I believe he started kneeling rating was two fifteen. So. Article Goes On. The issues that we were just talking about the increasing. Or decreasing completion percentage decreasing accuracy except sets. Those issues intensified in Twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen amid forty nine ers. Coaching turmoil in talent drain since the start of the twenty fifth season Kapernick ranks get this. Last in the NFL thirty five all five passers in off target percentage is off target twenty, two point six percent of the time which when she is the least accurate quarterback in the. League. As of the twenty. Fifteen. It goes on. Is Complete. Complete is completion percentage ranks number thirty, two at fifty, nine point one. He was still one of the NFL's most productive Shink quarterbacks, ranking number four total yardage over all those years but it didn't mitigate his passing deterioration and this is in my mind. This is the absolute most important line in the yard or ear and an adult. There is no more important attribute for quarterback accuracy especially for a free agent who is shopping himself teams with various schemes. In, the long term a quarterbacks running ability is considered a complimentary skill and one that is story. Fade with age or because of injuries, scrambling ability and arms drank are secondary to whether you can hit the target. That analysis backed up by numbers essentially wreck stay shit out of this current narrative will Cohen Governor never draw. Back. Dinners. Any beds no sorry. Have a fucking job because he sucks. Sex At what he does also, there's a theory going around the going around that it was right about twenty, nine, hundred he met his I don't know if she's still has girlfriend whatever evidently these ideas about radical justice one I'd ever definitely his girlfriend is, is some sort of radical s j w as well, and he was too stupid to either a lever to the side or be not listen door and just agree to disagree on stuff but then again. Go ahead exactly what it is. Power Pussy with exactly exactly and you quite frankly I can't fault them for that because you know that's ninety percent of marriages happen. We'll just we'll just leave at this point. Is that right there? That's You were saying regarding his ability to suck. But it started then I mean he the guy the guy got lazy. He got loud. Through the race card to cover his shit then he couldn't back up his mouth with performance. You know do you your ears? Rocco's fat okay. Let's talk about just a second. Let's talk about Shannon Sharpe just for ten seconds or for a few seconds. Okay. Shannon Sharpe. Is An arrogant prick agree or disagree now When I hang on, hang on that said. Shannon Sharpe liked to run his mouth about a lot of stuff at a lot of different times also true. Yes. Yes. Shannon Sharpe never failed toback his mouth up with his physical actions on field. Also. True. Unless I'm Clinton mistake, it have you seen the. I know he's A. He's a beast. His and by that, I, mean his physique and his skill level we're just unprecedented but you know I do I think running your mouth there's unprofessional Mind that you buy then back it up on the field nut so much. I mean. Go ahead. If I if I remember correctly now, remember this because there is significant events happened in my life sixteen nineteen. broncos are in the midst of the run to Super Bowl thirty two. Tonight game. In Kansas City in Kansas. City. I can remember. Watching a few days later because of recovering from surgery on. Shannon. Sharpe was literally being drug halfway across the field for most of the game by his helmet because he was talking some serious Shit Oh. Yeah. I. Remember Correctly Dr Thomas. If. If I get an incorrect Thomas Yeah. So. So pissed off the guy, he knocking, Kane insane composure in his professionalism in the game. You got what? I think. Say He lit it up. He was like Yeah. That's ten to twelve for. The Gargantuan One, twenty, one, twenty, six, and what two touchdowns. Yeah he was a month. So. All of a sudden sanders our. Love the Guy I've actually met him. Helvin individual. Love Tall. But he can copious amounts of Shit Oh. Yeah. Oh yeah that that man can back his mouth up. Oh Yeah. We have an and. He. End Let's let's break that down from an NFL perspective. So I'm a personnel manager. Okay and I have Shannon Sharpe as a free agent. His name comes across the wire I go holy Fuck Ball sharps available, and I already know that a he's allowed mouth be he likes to talk shit and sees extremely opinionated man but D-. The Guy Backs should have on the field I picked up the phone. I pick up the phone and say Hello Mr Shannon. Trump's lawyer her agent. This is me at the I would like to pay your your plant, a lot of money obscene amount of money to come help us when football game sets. Ended up with the. Exactly for whatever he was with the Ravens what three years. Say but he wanted them for four super bowl with their to. The argument that Colin Kaepernick doesn't have a job because Hashtag grace is complete an utter bullshit. Bullshit and the the fact that Roger Goodell has bought into this Shit Hook Line and sinker is even worse. Okay. You would think that that to be the commissioner of of a National League or National Professional Sports League that race in what eight to ten billion dollars. A year in gross revenue. You have. You'd have to have an IQ above your shoe size. Goodell even that these people that that they're they're professing to support. Social Justice. Wise. He realized that the vast majority of them do not watch the Games couldn't tell you five players in the league and doesn't even know couldn't name five teams lot I mean. She probably I mean. Look at some of the fan base. Did Not tell you the difference three, four, three defense. Yeah don't try to get him to describe the Tampa to. Exactly or various offensive formation. You're the simultaneous simultaneous possession roll which you and I can quote by heart understand completely. Exactly. Our guys we've got another segment coming up right after this brief break. Stay tuned. Midnight Patriot nations spartan with a shameless plug for our new gear shop shop. Dot. MIDNIGHT PATRIOTS DOT COM. T shirts, hats, hoodies, mugs, phone cases, and just about everything else in between we got you covered whether you're looking to embrace your insomnia, show your patriotism or make a liberals headaches blowed. Really, Shop Dot Midnight Patriots, Dot Com, and now back to the show. You know that's that said. I made a prediction in in midnight moment the last night moment and I want to run around wanted to run that by. Not. Only understand that the business portion of the of the game, but also the game itself. So this is going to the business portion now. One. Of the things that you and I both know is that owners very rarely. SAY WHAT THEY THINK Or say or reveal their plans in advance. Okay. I've noticed that the owners have remained. Suspiciously quiet. About the social justice campaign that's currently going on I do disagree with that. I mean like I said, I think Jerry Jones is really the only one that's actually made any sort of statement and it wasn't a very long. I ever Jones ever quiet. What that's that's my point. And say instead of instead of. Me thinks he protests too much. Me think she says nothing for more sinister Okay so I wanted to run this by this is my theory. Okay. Now we've confirmed the the the Monday night compal atrocity from last night. US. Or Susani from two nights ago that. We've confirmed that the viewership was down approximately twenty nine percent. Across the board in that double header. So if we take the two games Monday and the overall ratings of of being down for Sunday you're talking an average of of a twenty percent downer. It's one fifth of the audience of the television audience told the NFL the PISS off. Okay. Considering the the significant financial investment ESPN has for for the right. To. Monday night football. Let's just let's just call that loss unsustainable. Okay. So I am going to ask you to engage your owner brain for just a minute. Okay. So We're GONNA fast forward to the week after the Super Bowl's okay where things are notably notably quite Rosalie quiet. The coaching carousel began and things like that since. Day. Except that, there's going to be a rumor. Going to be a rumor. That the NFL that the owners are considering locking out the players because they want to renegotiate the contracts. And this will come as a surprise to dumb asses in the AT ESPN released. They're going to feign surprise. Okay. And we're going to start hearing things like while the coaches are not gonNa make anymore are putting hiring decisions are the owners are going to. Put a hiring decisions on pause for just We're going to review a few things and Blah Blah Blah. While then we're going to get to Russia's started free agency. And we'RE GONNA. Find out and it's probably going to be one of the one of the What's The guy's name? Remember his name. One of the reporters Schefter Adam schefter because he always breaks up he's. Probably. GonNa be schefter becomes. We have confirmed reports, the owners who are going to lock out the players affected nine am tomorrow or whatever. Okay. Now what's going to end up happening is this. The overall I would say, the overall revenue is going to decline somewhere in the area of twenty percent across the before the Lee across the. Across the season. Okay. Now again does just a prediction it might be higher. I hope it's higher until they stop dish this personally but. This is what's going to happen. You're going to get a massive ratings ratings cut. Even in the Super Bowl. Which means revenue is going to be down roughly thirty percents. Okay. What they're gonNA say is this is an unprecedented drop in revenue and the the losses are unsustainable. They're going to have to renegotiate the contracts. The players are GONNA have to take less money and this time the the ownership is going to be able to show concrete. The because of the drop in television revenue in Jersey sales and everything else. That they're going to have to renegotiate the contract. They're going to vote on removing Goodell as the commission. You're actually they're gonNA, they're gonNA end up forcing him out but the way it's GonNa play out this players are to get locked out. There's going to be a review of the deal of the of the current Labor Labor Agreement. The new agreement is GONNA. Have a significantly lower. Revenue Pool total that that the players are going to get. And they're going to have conduct they're going to have enhanced conduct policy which include the jewel stand for the national anthem. You will not hiding locker room for it. And you're going to we're going to not endorse anyone as far as any sort of political failure, your ideology on the field, and if you do not only will your contract be terminated but you'll be you'll be on the breadline by your suspended for a year. Now maybe the suspended for year won't come to pass but. Engage your own our brain for just a second and then look at the strike years that came up and you tell me how how how. Or how far I'll fight on that. Will. Allow me to. Dive into this plan I mean. Here we go. I am an owner of a NFL team. Meaning I have had to. Put Out. Let's use an arbitrary figure five hundred million dollars cash right upfront. Chooses five hundred. Half a billion. Cool. I'm. Glad. Yeah. Five hundred million dollars up front in order to gain my team have somewhere to play. The voted on passed and approved by the NFL. As either an expansion team whatever then. To, Cherry pick the other teams around here so I can build my team. In hopes that a I get a return on investment. That said if I'm going to dump five, hundred, million dollars out. A team equipment place play contracts that are stretched for X. number of years. This mice guaranteed this much at a signing bonus this much. Not. including the money paid to the team from the NFL for reaching a wildcard round, a divisional round championship round, and ultimately the Super Bowl. There are incentives paid to the teams by the NFL for attaining postseason plum. Yeah So that said with everything that goes on here. Currently we're martyring. Convicted felons we are. Using the NFL. As a soapbox. As an owner. would. Say? Okay. I can understand. The Point I understand where you're coming from I understand yes. Shit doesn't like this doesn't need to happen. It does there's nothing I can physically do about it personally except point out to you that you're not them. You are a multimillionaire more working your way to that point because of your talent, your skill and your ability play the game price. You as a athlete. well-fed well trained. Best shape, your ever loving life you have a house bigger than anything you've ever grew up in, you've got cars for days all these other things but. You need to remember that you are entertainer You're not a politician. So, that said. When to go into your point? After the Super Bowl. Until they actually have one right. That two weeks later, when everything's died down in the in the winter sprayed is over and losers or duck griping and the coaches players have made their way to their respective all. Wherever. That may be they're probably their private castles. Yes don't don't live in a castle guarded by you know dogs bigger than. Most people's. Cars. Were we will probably see as you said. Well you know revenue was down. Because of viewership is down across the board anywhere between currently twenty twenty, two percent to encroaching upon thirty percent. For Games you know TV, rights merchandise sales are going to be down. People are actively boycotting across those media and they're actually making their voice known by not watching. All of a sudden if we were to take thirty two current teams. And we look at. All the owners in this how much money they have? Now if we were to take thirty percent of total investment apart. As a conglomerate figure. We're talking a loss of probably and I would strong. Guess. Somewhere in the neighborhood of anywhere between two and two point, five, billion dollars while even go you want all you can go one better I think since the economy has basically picked up I mean you gotta remember the day to ten billion was during the Obama Konami which was one of the worst economies history. Okay. So that said you gotta figure that now it's probably going to be between ten and twelve. So if you have a twenty percent revenue law, if you have a almost thirty percent, you're talking about three billion dollars. That's a three billion dollar loss. So even if even if you spread that across thirty two teams, you're talking about what? Three hundred, million dollar loss per franchised. and. So and a lot of the smaller market. Good. So again, as an owner with Joan, arbitrary figure of five, hundred, million dollars starting I just lost seventy five percent of your or yeah of my revenue that I put into have an NFL team. Well, exactly. Well Number One and number two what anybody thinks that now? Okay. We all understand the cats at the revenue sharing For Those of us that are initiated, understand understand the the the reason for revenue. Okay. That's that's a given. Okay. Even still a thirty percent cut to that revenue devastates small-market teams devastate. Okay that's. Cleveland Cleveland Cambe that's Detroit. Well, I think Detroit is a bit bigger, but I catch meaning. into. Jacksonville. Flow? Buffalo Alright. That unders. Anyway. They're too big but no I hear you here's here's here's the thing the smaller market teams are going to move may if this continues maybe on the verge of bankruptcy and and if you really don't think that the NFL owners will lock out the players to avoid that. I just think everybody's so naive that they shouldn't even be a football fan you can. Football I in my opinion, these played the players and Adele are cutting the owners throats and I don't think the owners appreciate it number one and number two I. Think the owners are more in touch with their demographic their fan base style people want to believe i. don't say that they like their fan base because obviously as the executive class billionaires general ended the tend to hate working people or at least have a disdain for them. Okay. But the point being is that it's unsustainable model for them to go forward to continue this crap. Of K, it's it's absolutely ludicrous. So I think about beat that horse to death did you have anything to add on just on that? Final thought regarding that as an owner is a businessman I yeah exactly. Exactly. His businesses to? Yes he owns the team but as a business owner, you're always looking to. CRUISER BOTTLE BLONDE Increase but also you know they've got, they've got a commitment. You know what I mean I mean the bottom line is there are associated with raising revenue to pay Patrick mahomes half a billion dollars over the next. Seven years. Of. The point the point is this is that there are costs associated developing that revenue and win the players behavior or when when the when the the players union in the League encourages behavior that is deleterious to to that mission. Then what are the owners supposed to do? Gordon exactly. They locked the doors take resigning before we open this and then players you're GONNA WE'RE GONNA have to do a big restructure here. Sorry. You know this is this is not you? Not You know you're not this side of the world you guys are on the upper echelon. Of money you have succeeded in. On yourself up by your bootstrap for lack of terminology, you have made it playing a game that you love passion for three enforce your point duty not only are they a privileged class? Okay. Let I verified this I verify this last night. I made a statement that that. The NFL, the people on the NFL minimum as in rookies that that you know what we're undrafted free agents, right that are somehow made the squad, which is more powerful MAZAFA. A No experience. Rookie. Signed as a free agent this year in the League makes a minimum of six hundred, thousand dollars. Six hundred, ten, thousand dollars I then went to the Department of Labor's website guess what the average household income for Americans is as twenty twenty. Sixty, one, thousand, three, hundred. Yes. They working person would take ten eleven years to make. They're making six months show and this is not this is not an insult. I'm only going to use the label for for effect. Hacks in the NFL make ten times. The average working family does and they dare fucking lecture us about what our values should be faulk them. Big F what. Exactly. With a with capitalize all letters with with several exclamation points at the end. So that said I. Underlined and and I tell us is never. That's that said, I I wanNA give credit where it's due also understand that you know. What did I just go off on the NFL to you know to to to the end up with surprise we'll tell you why because You know even in the worst of situations, even even in the darkest night, there are rays of sunshine out gather are rays of light and I want to heap praise on two particular players, and these are the only two players. That I'm aware of have done this if any of you out there. Needed to midnight Patriot nation are aware of more please let us know. So we can give them their just desserts in their props. I want to give particular a credit to a hundred in the way of of the of the Pittsburgh steelers. Mr Villanueva is a former army ranger That said he made a big splash stirred shit storm by doing the right thing. I'm not going to get into the to the criminal that that the that the steelers. We're trying to honor Norma GonNa try to justify it didn't happen there but. Mr Vienna wave. Did something very classy He caped over the criminals name and he chose to honor sergeant first class all when cash. Now I believe I'm saying that correctly cut me some slack by brute if I if I. A brutalized his name that is not the intention. To say how I believe it's spelled. But sergeant first, class all, when. Cash. who was killed in Afghanistan? And I I, WANNA. I WANNA take. The chance to really You know he preys on on Mr Villain away for for going against the grain and for honoring in a true fallen hero on instead of instead of the criminal. So. Well on on that. The next one and probably the biggest honors of the latest give to the Jaguars tight tyler effort. I think I'm saying his name correctly also I don't think it's effort at the. But again, please forgive me if I've Jaguars fans if wrecked his name to. That being said that were I for also You know went against the grain he chose to honor the life of David Dorn David Dorn for those of you that that don't know was retired police officer. I believe it was Saint Louis. He. police chief Sir about that. He was retired police chief and he. was acting on behalf of a friend to go and check is Friends Pawn Shop. And he was gunned down he was killed Doing doing that by a felon in possession of firearm each shot this this legitimate euro From behind in the back of the head, which was incredibly cowardly act. ADORNS widow. was featured at the Republican National Convention. So those be the she told the heart wrenching story and As much as I am I gotTa tell you broaden orphee side, but he loved me misty. I was just her story about David's life was very touching and the impact on her family were simply crush. So I wanNA other drove I drove home the point. Your choice exact life exactly as what makes you? Exactly you know people people come from from bad situations and rise to great heights in as far as I know. This is the only country in the world that that can happen. Where you can make what you want of your own life. Okay. The biggest prison that we have in this country, the prison in our own minds. So A. Big Praise to do Mr Bean away and Mr for will done. I still have the continue my. My boycott because of my standards but you gentlemen have shown that there is a a ray of light in darkness. So Phoenix where you have anything to add or have we beat this to death. By by Pres for. There are people in the NFL that are serving of. Respect for me for one. Not because of their wallet or their house or their cars. But they chose stand for the national anthem. As. SOMEONE WHO Leaves in their country. Leaves in the American dream all though little hard to attain sometimes. The anthem regardless of anybody's political stance. The gentleman across the nation. And the NFL NBA MLB. I stand with you guys choose to stand in honour your country. That is. The way it is your will said. Anybody else wants that is your choice. I. Respect your choice I don't like it but I do respect it. But I stand with the gentleman who chooses stanton honor the country, the greatest country on this earth. Gives them every opportunity to excel in anything that they choose to? Like professional football or professional athletics exactly. I think it. I think it's worth mentioning here. I know we said we beat the source of, but I wanNA bring up another topic to. Weird Midnight Patriots all of us. May disagree with with what someone says, but we would fight to our desk to protect their their right to say those words. That being said I think one of the other things that the public is piss pot tired of is the privileged wealthy assholes. Being able to have different sets of rules at their workplace than we do. In the Corporate World in William and most smaller companies you do not have. You do not have freedom of speech. Okay. You will be shown the door if you bring up politics religion, etc etc. Okay. With social justice causes or otherwise. They can show you the door. Okay and I don't think I don't think it's Ok these. Use Their their platform on the field or in any way while a uniform to promote their agenda. Okay. Now, I think you and I would agree with this if the NFL Players Association wants to get together and host either a live event or televised event. when they are not playing and they're out of uniform. And they want to tackle these issues donate money to causes give away money whatever I think that would be a perfectly acceptable display. That's fine. Okay. But I think the reason they don't is they know that the cause is a loser. Okay. They're not willing to risk their own money you know to they're not willing to put their money with their mouths are in order to have their protests but but you know somehow everybody else should just shut up and and honor was they're trying to do and I think that that is excellent. You know policy at its finest end. America's PISS POT tired of turning channel I. think that's a big factor as well. As your thoughts unfortunately mean here to. Drive your point. I could see. Getting together having one big party fundraiser l. have running toe board. Hey, you know we're raising all this money great or even several. Yeah Go. But the reason but the reason they're doing it on television is because they can reach a mass audience all at once. But. They haven't had. They had the NFL network. If. The shows a winner, they could sell it to their to their allies in the media. WHO's to say ESPN would cover it. You know for God's sake ESPN has the SP one of the worst ward Joe's ever. Okay and if they want to go up to that into a social justice show fine. Go right ahead or create when like it again. Fine. Or if you know even Amazon or Netflix wants to pick up something about you know the S J W 'cause in the NFL an interview players follow players around their charitable work while they advance these causes grace go ahead I mean I think what they'll find his a there's no interest in be nobody cares they approach it that way that we far less backlash in their their incomes would be far safer than if they continue down this path. the ratings would actually come back to a more normal. That's where I'm talking about I. Mean there are only cutting their own throats by doing it the way they're doing it that that's all I have to say. So that's a wrap for this midnight. Mama we we went really long hopefully provided you get some insights, maybe some food for thought. Ob Spartan in Im with Phoenix, and we're just reminding you one last time in forever.

"To argue against Ryan leaf because I think we all understand that that not only is Ryan leaf the biggest draft busts in Chargers history or model is the leading contender he's also one of the biggest in the history of the NFL draft there is an actual discussion in this country that took place that said Peyton manning or Ryan leaf that was an actual the thing that people talk about including me who was a big Ryan Lee fan we all know how Ryan Lee fared in the NFL the only thing I remember there's two things that I remember from Ryan leaf's career don't talk to me knock it off we all remember don't talk to me knock it off when he had to be restrained by his teammates and one on field thing that I remember of Ryan leaves time with the Kansas City error against the K. it was against the Kansas City Chiefs the Chargers are actually coming in at two at all that week and Ryan we've put together a stat line that I have despite looking every year have not been able to find a stat line quite this prolific one out of fifteen for four yards one of fifteen for for yards with what Ryan leaf went against the Kansas City Chiefs one year in fact when you figure in his sack yardage he was negative nineteen and I don't know where we stand I don't know when we apply sack yardage or when we don't but one of fifteen for four yards was also picked off twice sacked twice to the tune of twenty three a total yards he also had one rushing yard on four tenths I will never forget that game that was one of the more indelible images of Ryan leaf's playing career and it and look I have Ryan leaf on this program multiple times I like the guy he's a great story of how he turned it around but he was a mess as a football player as a professional football player so I because they this is the game I'm going to give you two other options you could choose to vote for them or you could not I don't have much to say on these guys but I'll put it out there Sammy Davis not the singer thirty of pecan talk only thirteen the Chargers that you're traded down from picks fifteen where they could have had Troy Polamalu they got down to pick thirty okay whatever you give more pics you miss on Paul ball okay a lot of people that no problem then after thirty they could have had Nambi awesome want who plays the same position as Sammy Davis and they chose wrong again although when the AJ Smith was the GM of the Chargers there wasn't many picks that he nailed and then here is a nother wall full swing and a miss by the Chargers organization Craig Davis better known as buster I am not making that up the gentlemen's nickname was buster he was a wide receiver out of Alice you K. if they were looking at a pass catcher might I have suggested Steve Smith or Sidney rice or Greg Olsen or Zach Miller nope they took Craig buster Davis I didn't mount to great argument for.
Andrew Luck retirement: Here's hoping he finds peace and fulfillment in whatever is next to come
"Colts quarterback Andrew luck retiring played six seasons in the NFL he missed all of the twenty seventeen season made one A. F. C. championship games the forty four time pro bowler with zero Super Bowl appearances and there are some people as expected Joe on social media and elsewhere that are calling into like a botched I think he's a disappointment I think that's fair to say but I don't think you can call a guy who was predominately injured and then played well when he was healthy Abbas injure looks kind of like a bill Walton to me now I guess bill Walton did win a couple of championships including one with the Celtics when he was coming off the bench but he had his career defined by injuries I think that's more lock then putting him in that Ryan leaf Johnny Manziel category which I just don't think it's fair at all no no no no no I. V. kebab that would they they got to an AFC championship game he made pro bowls as you mentioned and if you can't shake the injury bug well that's a completely separate topic if you want to call it a disappointment you want to call it one of the great what ifs in sports not just football but just sports you know sometimes I always wonder what would have looked like if Ken Griffey junior could have stayed healthy throughout his entire career in baseball those I think are fair conversations but this business that he is some sort of a bust com on people let's step away from the Twitter machine for a little bit let's get away for that to think this through a little bit before we start talking that noise you know that that were just pops like it's an evocative word it's you have an emotional reaction when you hear it but I I do think that it's disappointing I I think he's one of the most hyped quarterbacks to ever come into the league and to see him with zero Super Bowl appearances on his resume at least for now I keep reminding myself tonight Joe that Andrew luck story may not be quite done here mom because you know twenty nine years old whenever you retire like rob Gronkowski retires similar age you know not not that much older than and you lock in everyone says the same thing just wait until November in ground pool plug himself back into the New England Patriots in here we go so I would not be shocked to see a lot get healthy and come back but tonight certainly he signed it sounded pretty resigned to the S. and like he had given it some serious thought and I imagine I can only imagine how the colts organization feels you know after preparing for a season where they thought they were going to be Superbowl contenders with one of the top G. M. as in the league in Chris Ballard all of a sudden they have Jacoby per set as their starting quarterback after luck made the announcement colts owner Jim Irsay gave his reaction to Andrew luck's retirement right now we're just thankful about what Anders meant to this city I know a lot of a lot of range of emotions go through our fans and and that's a a natural thing that we can all relate to it was something obviously that we are hoping that might be something that that could have went a different direction but if he had a file is hard and and that's what he did and so again we have nothing but gratitude and thankfulness for for the blood sweat and tears you spill the as number twelve and part of our hearts broken and I

This man cave, if you if you enjoy sports in any degree it is, heaven. That's, that's a good way to, but they walked me through this way. So I got to see this part then they brought me out the back end where I walked onto the football field. I saw the little weight room. Yeah. And then the basketball court. Now, if I had in my house, I would I would do nothing but shoot hoops all day. What kind of bounce good ballplayer were you in high school? I was I was decent. I mean it was Montana, which doesn't have the greatest basketball. But there were some really good players during that span that were from small towns. I played a lot of basketball with them. That's why was my favorite sport if I could've played basketball, I would I just wasn't. Of course. Good enough to do it. I got an opportunity to walk on as a as a freshman in Washington state. And of course, coach price was. Was like, you know, you could you can make a living out of this football thing if we really put effort into it, you know, and he convinced me, but that was part of the recruiting process. Right. When I went and did my recruiting it was it was viable that I got chance to play basketball as well. But we've talked about this. I, I always wondered if you truly loved football because I didn't get the feeling that it was the most important thing to you whereas and you're always compared to Peyton Manning for Peyton. It was his life, right? Like he loved it. I didn't think you loved football. I think I loved what came with. Okay. Okay. Yeah. But for the longest time before it became something bigger than me. I loved it. I mean, I would spend hours in the film room with coach price. I would be on the football field. I love to practice. I just hated going into work because of what the, the constant criticism, the back and forth with my teammates. And I really didn't think that money was going to change me. But when I got all that money, I just was like, I got everything, I need, and I want to do this other cool stuff. You know. Is it like that? I check that you got signing bonus. Well, I was angry as hell because so many taxes were taken out of it. So I like called my dad and I said, I was like almost crying for how much money was taken out in taxes, and he's like he made it very clear to me said, son, the more money that's coming out and taxes means the more money you're getting paid. Keep keep that in perspective. So, but yeah, that was really much was that, that will they split it up. It was eleven point two five million dollars. Wow. So you got a check for a lemon of they split it into three things. So the first one was, like you poor thing. How did you get by, like three point four million dollars? What did you do that? That, that next day, you got the first check for almost four million. Well, I was my dad's set me up with a proper financial advisor and it, it went there. I mean I started out the right way. You didn't do anything stupid originally. No. I didn't. It's crazy. Right. You're in college, and you can't afford anything and every no one will get anything for you. But then when you're in the pros, and you can buy anything you want. Everybody wants to give you some. So they gave me like a Toyota forerunner to drive around in.

He came out with us a couple of times in New York. The Indianapolis Super Bowl the screening of. That's my boy, the Adam Sandler movie he was with us. And then all of a sudden we saw where he got arrested. We saw that he was in was going to jail, and I said to paulie, we should reach out and just if we can help in any way, and then eventually when he came out, and then we had him on and people got to hear story.

So, you know, he's gone through an awful lot. But it's great to see that he has a special person his life, and he's got a son now, and he's getting these opportunities to talk to people Intel that story. Yes. He he at the, you know, the legends thing with the NFL makes so much sense. Because he is he's an absolutely legend. Ndary figure in the history of the NFL just not in the traditional way that you think of it. But his place has a legend is absolutely accurate.

I don't I don't think he would want. You know, if you said, hey can be a first round pick or it can just be a good student happy happy kid he might opt for that. Because as he said, we get caught up in that what kind of player you are not what kind of person you are. And he was good enough to get by. And maybe not being a good person. But he was a good quarterback. Yeah. Polling but that said based on the name macgyver leaf alone. He's got to have at least half a dozen scholarship offers. And I think he's eighteen months old. By the way, he's six one eighteen. When ninety five. That's good though, the NFL hired him. But, you know, sometimes when you you tell rookies like, hey, here's some of the things. I may I made mistakes here. Like, they look at us. If to say, I'd never lose my money. I would never take that. Or I'd never act that way then. And that's where you have to kind of penetrate that wall to say, look, I was on the floor of a prison thinking, how did I get in here? And I remember him telling us that and I always appreciated his honesty and transparency because people when they bring hopefully when they bring up Ryan Leafs name. Now, they bring it up in a positive way, and they should because he's been a positive example. And even when we had him in. And he started telling me his story and ham clean, and I'm skeptical and we'll remain skeptical. But I hope that he always proves me wrong. But it's always great to see him.

So we get Ryan leaf coming up in a little bit. We talked a little bit about baseball yesterday because you had a record setting day. Forty eight home runs were hit total forty eight home runs and the dodgers hit eight home runs yesterday in the win over AirAsia. That's the most by any baseball team all time on opening day. Also tied the team record for homers in any game. You have to go back to two thousand two. And that was I think mid-may when Sean green had four home runs for the dodgers. So four of their eight also talked about defense Michigan at forty four points last night against Texas Tech. That's the fewest all time in the NCWA tournament for Michigan their previous low was back in nineteen forty eight. When they lost to Bob Cousy and Holy Cross sixty three forty five days day that best ad of the day stat of the day. Comes that. What stat of? How many times last season? Do you think the Michigan football team scored at least forty four points in a game basketball team held to forty four last night in the loss to Texas Tech three times last season Michigan's football team scored more than forty four points. How many times do you think? Texas Tech's football team gave up forty four points or more. Three times. You know, it comes down to defense. But sometimes defense is probably masquerading is just the tense atmosphere. Every shot matters the stakes are higher. But Michigan does play. Great defense. Texas Tech plays great defense, but you have to have offense. You gotta have some shooters in there. You gotta have guys that you can go to and you can isolate and they can create points and Michigan did not I saw Michigan earlier in the in the year. And I thought at the time they were the best team that I'd I'd seen. But I just wondered when I watched you can play great defense, but they were making shots. And if you don't do that, you're not going to advance in the tournament peach in Virginia joining us this morning. Hi, pete. Dan, it going good good. What's up Pete?

I just became a father myself about seventeen months ago, and it's it's simply the greatest thing I think I'll ever do. And so I agree.

And I was like this guy is not a quarterback. There's no way. This guy's got to be an offensive lineman and to this day..

You learned a few things about me and my teammates with John with with Lynch and with Rhonda and all those guys, but we we went our separate ways. Right. You moved up the ladder. I fell to the bottom of the earth and about two and a half years ago Nate Boyer brought me into a little program you started. And what what has transpired since that moment. I mean, really. The best part is Nate brings Brenner you in. And he goes man and bring them Ryan leaf a Ryan leaf don't bring up the beep beep in here and Nate being the great human being he is goes.

We had a veteran in there who's who's going over and he was homeless, and it was talking I met this girl and had no value in man Ryan raised his hand from it back in the room. You guys talking about value money? Just you guys know as Ryan we've had everything had all the money in the world, I could possibly want. And you know, I ended up, you know, after my career ended would say Ryan said I had a mansion and San Diego, you know, multi million dollar contract and still even without you try to kill yourself so money doesn't solve everything. And then you're making fifteen bucks an hour. Driving people to from reality. The happiest I've ever been. And I'm like, oh my God..
Nolan Arenado, Colorado Rockies agree to $26 million, 1-year deal
"Nolan Arnaldo and the Rockies have settled on a one year contract as what it is usual. When you go into arbitration. Ken Rosenthal reports are not as one year twenty six million dollar deal with the Rockies is a record for player through the arbitration process. If you remember the Rockies came in at twenty four which would have also been a record one year arbitration deal are not a wanted thirty million dollars. They settle on twenty six as what usually happens. You split. The difference in everyone goes home. That's that's significant and. While it sure doesn't seem like the Rockies have any aces up their sleeve in terms of recruiting Bryce Harper or landing, you know, they're still alive. Dallas kaikal hasn't been signed. Like, it doesn't seem like the Rockies are saving their money to go. After one of these marquee free agents that are still on the market. But I wonder what this means for Nolan are nano he said when he asked for thirty million dollars that it was what all athletes eight is business. It is a business. And you just heard Ryan leaf say the NFL is a business, but at the same time Nolan has no no other organization than the Rockies. You would want him. I think to be a little less cold and calculating, maybe that's too pollyannaish for the rock from the Rockies perspective. But is he going to be that rigid with the Rockies when they tried to negotiate a long-term deal during or after this year, the Rockies can't play around with this? I said this the other day. They can't risk losing Nolan for nothing. And for those who think that this thing's going to drag out till the end of September. No, it's not it has to be settled by July thirty one or they have to have a strong indication one way or another because they gotta get something for them. Or it's going to set this franchise back five years, and I'm not being I I'm not trying to be alarmist. And I don't think I'm being over the top. That's how important Nolan are not always you could talk about Trevor story and Charlie Blackmon those guys come and go they go up and down Nolan is the guy. He's the face of the franchise. He's their best player. He's the most steady and efficient. Hitter that they have. To me. They can't they can't hang onto him hoping that a whole year convinces them. They gotta try to convince them and a half a year or else they're going to be in a really tough spot. Well, and I'd say now that they've taken care of the whole arbitration thing and avoided that started now, right? Are working on a long term deal. Now. And look I would like to Rockies I mentioned this earlier in the show. The Padres are going to meet with Bryce Harper. I would love for Jeff rise to do that. To but to me. Jeff bridage. Should sit down right now. And all he should do. It's figuring out how he can convince Nolan are not to stay. Because that is the top priority and say what you will about when the Rockies traded Larry Walker or Baldo Jimenez, or any of these others. This will be the Troy to Lewinsky, even this will be bigger than any of those and more detrimental to the Rockies. If they don't handle this correctly. So I say all the time you have time to do other things, Jeff. But this has got to be your focus when you wake up in the morning. And when you go to bed at night figuring out. How to convince Nolan are Nado to stay in purple
