Players blitz NFL with tweets about safe return

"And thank you so much for joining us seven am on the east coast this. Get up I'm Ryan Smith in for my Greenberg, and we will be with you for the next two hours with a lot to cover from the weekend, especially from the world of the NFL, because believe it or not, we're just fifty two days away from the Super Bowl champion chiefs, and the Houston Texans opening the NFL regular season as rookies from both of those teams will be the first players to report to training camps today, but a big development yesterday of NFL players took to twitter. Twitter yesterday to voice their concerns about the safety protocols put in place or lack thereof chiefs quarterback Patrick mahomes. Said this getting ready to report this week hoping the NFL will come to agreement with the safe and right protocols, so we can feel protected playing the sport. We Love Hashtag. We WanNA play. The saints drew brees. We need football. We need sports. We need hope, but the NFL's unwillingness to follow the recommendations of their own medical experts will prevent that if the NFL doesn't do their part to keep players healthy, there is no football in twenty twenty. It's that simple. Get it done NFL and seahawks. Russell. Wilson I am concerned. My wife is pregnant. NFL training camp is about to start, and there is still no clear plan on player, health and family safety. We want to play but football, but we also want to protect our loved ones again Hashtag, we wanNA play over the weekend NFL PA Vice President Sam. Acho gave this recommendation. If safety plans are not in place. The recommendations for some of the rookies, and also some of the players is to report right now we have a week until all the other ninety gas or supposed to report, and so as of now we're telling players get ready and stay ready, but if the NFL doesn't come up with these plans, you cannot show up.

"ryan smith" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

"Over the weekend and then descend myself some sound and I remember. Hey I left a lunch. -Able in let me get that out so that it doesn't go and fill up the fridge and then I realized after today threw it into a garbage and it's not going to be changed for months so instead of it being refrigerated and contained it's now open garbage can. We're even faster your worst. Okay thank you billy. We appreciate it. That's what we're going to be returning to Seth wicker Sham with and he's done much of this reporting on the Patriots I don't know if I WANNA call it dysfunction. Do I WANNA call it dysfunction? Seth thank you for joining. It was a dysfunction it. I don't think it's dysfunction. I just think that everything kind of rain of course I mean it's kind of it. I don't I don't know I never classified. This dysfunctional though is an ego. It's so there's so many extremes going on here that I don't exactly know how if it is ego or you know it's like you've Tom Brady. Who's been so public in so earnest in his declaration to play until mid forties. That just doesn't happen that often. And then you have a head coach. Who's built the most successful system in modern? Nfl history and much of it is predicated on the knowledge and the emotionless Tenet of moving on from players a year earlier rather than a year late and so in a weird way. This was just always going to happen. There was a tension between a system and Tom Brady is goals. That made this kind of inevitable and more than ego more than dysfunction. Yeah there's some tension and there's some icy nece right now between these guys but at the end of the day both of them stood their. And it's you've got to kind of respect didn't weird way. It seems human but it also seems ridiculous. Is this really about? Who deserves the credit for making the other one a champion? I don't know I don't think that that's it and I'll tell you why our colleague Jeff Darlington who's been all over. This story said on the air of the other day that he didn't think that Brady was looking to resume pad by going to the bucks which might seem like a pretty obvious pretty obvious decision. But you know this isn't about necessarily the race to the seventh ring. He wanted to be appreciated. He wanted to have fun. He wanted to do something different. And you bill check. Who will always want to win no matter you know when he goes out no matter. Who's playing and you know? He's built an entire dynasty largely. Based on the idea that you can plug anybody in at any time and they can figure out a winning game plan within that and so. I don't know how to describe this other than this was just like a complete contrast extremes and you know this was going to happen and it's kind of a miracle that a waited this long until it did seth wicker. Sham joining us after twenty years. Obviously Tom Brady leaves New England. And what would you cite as the most egregious examples of him? Feeling underappreciated. It's the contract you know. I wrote about it in you know I did the story. We talked about it in in in January of two thousand eighteen about some of the issues that were going on in the building. And yes Tom. You know the TB twelve method was an issue in yes. Jimmy Garoppolo was an issue and yes. The role of Alex Guerrero. Tom Trainer and business partner was an issue but the biggest issue that he wanted a contract that reflected a commitment to him. He wanted in two thousand seventeen he met with bill. Check with Robert Kraft about it many times. It never happened in. He skipped entire off season in two thousand eighteen. At least the voluntary part of it and sent a bunch of weird messages. You know in various interviews in social media his ambivalence about returning to the Patriots August Twenty Eighteen. He gets five million dollars in new incentives that he never reached August. Twenty nine thousand nine. He still doesn't get a commitment. He said the team holds its ground and they want a year to year contract and so he signs it knowing that he can voided at the end of the year and move on if he wants to and even when him and when Tom Village talked in early March nobody had changed. He's still wanted to your commitment without qualifiers and Bill. Belichick still saw him as a year player. That's it I mean. I think the end of the day. It's like yes dollar checks. Coaching style can be grading and gets annoying. But he's been through that he knows what it's about. He wanted A contract that reflected a commitment to him for the next couple of years and the Patriots. Simply were not willing to give it to him so the Patriots offer him the same contract that the bucks just gave him. Do you think Tom Brady is still a patriot? And I ask that because I wonder how much younger I wonder how much of this is about. Hey My my legacy is already solidified on the greatest quarterback ever my final two seasons. I just WanNa play which some great skill position guys around me just have some fun and not have so much tension. Yeah maybe I mean do but I just don't know. I think that you know. I think the contract was the biggest thing and the relationship between the him and Bella check was kinda wrapped up in it also. And so you know you. Our breer had a note about today in his column in sports illustrated saying that you know Brady was not gonNA beg for his job. Back and bill was not going to welcome him back with open arms and tell him how much he loved him. I mean these guys just don't operate that way and after what they've accomplished in the NFL. You kind of can't blame them. But you know I think those were like the biggest factors and like I don't know if it's someone to blame or someone to not blame in this as much as it just kind of life. I mean Robert Kraft was just not going to try to force a marriage at the end of the day. But he did right. He was forcing marriage earlier than that. You were the one actually reported all the Garoppolo's stuff that it seems. It seems fairly obvious that the Brady went over. Bell checks had to stay there a couple of years beyond where it is. The belichick wanted him there. No well I think that you know the Patriots having ruthless internal system of how they grade players and you know our colleague. Connor wrote about it in his book. A COUPLE YEARS AGO ON BILL. Belichick where you know. They felt like they could win. A super bowl with fifteen or so quarterbacks in the NFL just the way that they believe that they can find a winning game plan no matter who is a quarterback? And so you know. Tom Brady Changed Bill. Ballot check life and legacy and I think that he I think bill appreciated Thomas Player and also valued him at what they valued him at and that was a year to year player. And there's no question that he saw Jimmy Garoppolo as a potential successor and you know might have liked to cross that bridge but you know. Jimmy didn't WANNA sign their craft sided with Tom. Brady and you know Thomas still playing at a pretty high level at that point in. Didn't necessarily give his job. And so you know Robert Kraft made it clear to reporters that you know. He was going to stay out of this. And this was Bella. Checks negotiation handle and. I found it very interesting that when Tom Brady came over to Robert Kraft House a week ago. Tonight Kraft said publicly that he assumed that Brady was coming over to quietly. Get the deal done. Like they had done in the past just the two of them. I found that fascinating comment one of those moments. Where you accidentally tell the truth you know. What else do you find interesting about some of the reporting of the last week? Well I think it's still being sorted out and I think the story will still be told you know about you know how big of a market Tom Brady. Actually had. I mean it still seems weird to say but the Tennessee Titans. That seems like a perfect match for Tom. Brady picked Ryan Tannehill over Tom. Brady I mean that. Still an odd sentences to say You know the colts looked at time but they never really got involved. The forty niners had a discussion about it but they never really got involved. In at the end of the day Brady had three offers. He had from the bucks the Patriots in the in the Los Angeles chargers. Personally I always thought he was. GonNa go someplace huge. I thought that his life required him to be someplace big he can go to spago and in Beverly Hills and nobody cares that he's there whereas in Tampa you know he'll get standing ovations everywhere he goes but I think the geography of Tampa made sense. I think Bruce Arians just being more like a laid back coach made sense for him and his wife at the end of the facebook Docu series. A couple of years ago. Tom Versus time. Said you know. Tom Just wants to be a place where he appreciated and he has fun. And I think that even though we dissect those words I think we underestimated how much he really wanted to feel. Appreciated I e have a contract that reflected a commitment to him and have fun and it sounds like two things. That aren't unreasonable to ask. But if you're asking them Bill Belichick New England patriots. And you're a forty two quarterback you're probably asking the impossible. Nl The dismount Thank you for being with us. Appreciate the reporting Sir. My pleasure guys stay safe if you.

Why Front's Series C matters

"I'm Alex Wilhelm and once again I have have denny Crichton with me Danny how are you doing. I'm doing awesome. That is that's enthusiasm. You are back in New York. I'm in Providence and I have to say I've I've had enough of this shit. I want some summer but the good news is despite the terrible weather and the time of the year. There is a gazillion things to get to. So I'm going to skip the usual faffing about and jump bright in. I'm going to start the show with front which I need you to explain to me why this particular funding round was such a big deal. Right you'RE GONNA kick off the entire show that so start with why. Hi the Health Care Front. Raise fifty nine million dollars in series C and Here's here's the deal. They didn't have a lead. They had no investors. There no lead V. V. C. WE KNOW Vision Fund. No no sequoia. Although Sequeira did the series B. on they actually lead with a couple of really prominent be to be CEO and founder so lasting Cassia and founder Mike Cannon Brookes octa CEO and Co founder Frederick Harassed Multiplex Co founder and CEO. Ryan Smith Zoom CEO. Eric Yuen. What's interesting here here is is? We're getting to these late. Stage growth rounds at a time when there's more growth money than ever and basically said now we're good we're just gonNA take from really prominent angels. Who all of that exited you know? Kind of startups and. So what's interesting here is twofold one is one the dynamic. VC industry which we can talk about more but to actually kind of the strategy here of front is a B. Two B. Product Arctic. Selling to other kind of B2B startups and so by taking this money from other kind of B. Two B. Sales centered Start founders and see IOS. They're really kind of like buying. I'm from their own customers so to speak right synchronicity. That's connecting the two together. So the fifty nine million dollar round had no lead. VC there was no like Kleiner liner coming in here right in the big check. I'm curious do you think that the disease that previously invested got pro rata in this round or do think it was all just money from these I guess executives turned angels. I think they've got Harada me. I don't think it was in the press. Release that they did but I am sure they did. I'm also not entirely clear that these folks took the entire round. I mean there could have been nate. Twenty or twenty five million dollars slug from around that was announced yama funding from a farm that was announced But nonetheless like the fact that it was positioned this way If you imagine in ten years ago this sort of round first of all wouldn't exist but this ground where we would said Oh a bunch of angels came in late stage. It'd be like well. This company must be doing terribly wrong Novi. ABC was willing to lead the round. Things have changed so much. That founder can literally say God. We got a couple of individuals around at the party. At the craps table they put in fifty nine million bucks. We're going wow unbelievable. They said no to everyone. It's amazing change in time. It is but also I'm kind of embarrassed by the number of people I know on this list. Like I know Frederick a little bit I know Ryan a little but I know Eric a little bit. I think I've met J. I mean I think I need to change industry industries because the the same eight people keep coming up. That's embarrassing to me. I need any new friends. Let's talk about what the company does front is be messaging kind of calms thing. It looks like email works for teams. I'm assuming this is kind of product aimed at customer support customer success kind of groups. Yes affront fronts. Innovation was really for a lot of top companies they have an email like support at techcrunch dot com or press at at Google Dot Com. Which is actually how we reach out to right? And so when that goes into Press Google Dot com on that actually gets centered and moved around the the thousands of people who are in Google Google to figure out how to respond to it. So if he's coming from an ad tech crunch email address like from us he goes to our tech crunch contact if it goes to APEC Asia. Pacific it'll go to someone who's live overnight overnight overseas and so basically thousands of people are accessing the same email inbox and so. Have you ever tried to do your own inbox with g million. No it's basically impossible with one goddamn person on the box. Now you had an hundreds of people all of whom are interacting with the same emails etc and suddenly. It's just a complete mess front. Took that and said Hey. What have we built in box from? Scratch zooming that. There are thousands of people or hundreds of people reading the same tickets reading the same emails. And how can we respond to it. Really really effectively. Huge problem tons of companies have it. They've been super successful. It's only a couple years old and what's interesting is actually the the founders are French It actually has a large Parisian office one founder Laurent Had A decade and enterprise. And then WHO's also female be to be founder of rare breed unfortunately in the industry who CEO up and she. She kind of came out of her master's disagree in two thousand twelve and dived into this and front. So it's a five year. Old Company raised one hundred thirty eight almost one hundred forty million bucks. An insane amount of money ended the speed was raise capitals crazy because their series of ten million was back in May of two thousand sixteen. Then Bam sixty six million early eighteen and then two years later fifty nine million so really. It's pretty frontloaded or backloaded. I'm sorry to kind of where we are in time now. I'm curious to see how much more capital they'll need to scale this to IPO. It's already kind of there. But certainly a lot of star power a lot of customers on this new investment and. I'm kind of curious that this is a trend that will see a flex from companies. That were so hot. We don't even need venture capital all the real stars of our industry the money in It's certainly a new way to approach it absolutely. I think one of the key lessons here at least for me was a company that really figured out product market fit super early on You know if you look at it was founded Five years ago it took two years to build out so uncork. Capital is sort of a firm that argues it focuses on product market fit. They raised three point. One million seed in October two thousand fourteen and then once they sort of got this product market fit. And it's sort of obvious today but looking back in time the idea that there d the SASS product to fix this team oriented email. inbox was sort of not a concept of. Now it's just scaling right it's all sales scaling And so we're seeing the rounds. Get faster and faster. Because they're repeated you you know the sales are repeating assuming the growth is repeating internally. The numbers look great. It's sort of classic SAS business I expect us to see as one hundred millionaire our club as you call it hopefully in the next year or two that there hasn't been announcement around the revenues but I expect it to constitute here about their W. two and a half year over year now has a pretty quickly quickly there probably. I Dunno just guessing. You're twenty thirty million era or somewhere in there and they'll be largest soon enough. Let's talk about the couple world through a different Lens. Though you have been looking at Tau really large funds cutting smaller and smaller Jackson. We're talking about funds at have billions in assets under management writing five seven million dollar checks which seems to make no oh sense. According to the old model of larger funds larger textile works otherwise. They can't really disburse the capital. But that's changing and I want you to tell you why because to fascinating fascinating kind of like nuance about today's venture capital market. Absolutely free front is a great example of this right. So here's a fifty nine million dollar check that no growth stage investor mister. WHO has a billion dollars ready to deploy was able to invest it and so we're seeing once again The largest funds billions of dollars. We had we talked about last week. Show I think we had twenty-one fundraisers that were over five hundred million last year. It was ninety one somewhere in that category so a ton of money deployed and so the idea that you would do early. Stage investments is nuts. Because you can't deploy million dollars a thousand times a year and so the challenges is like. Why are people doing this when I started asking if he sees the answer was well once the the cap tables in the series B and D are out there? They're locked it in a sequeira already in the a benchmarks already in the a founders fund the and they have the capital to deploy in the B A C D E F g all the way through the Sesame Street Alphabet All the way through and so by the time you get to the D. you have no access or in the case of front. No one had access suicide. Basically you have to lock in earlier in earlier and so even if you're the Softbank Vision Fund you WanNa throw four hundred million dollars in series d you have to be in the seed or the series. He's A to start to lock in that Barada to start locking in those early ownership rights. It just gives you more ball control later on because other people are going to kind of knock you out of the way to get around in place and so there's sort of this paradox. Where we're seeing? You know the the largest latest stage funds doing the smallest early stage rows and so that that was a really interesting dynamic that we haven't seen before yeah and the one thing to keep in mind that when I was learning about the BBC World you know maybe a decade ago. Now I was always told that if you couldn't find a new lead investor for the proximate round the next one. It was a very bad signal because it would imply that no one else in the market one to lead your Siri seafood areas to be and having Europe preceding investors. That were leads lead. Your next around was a very bad thing. Now it's entirely flipped on its head because capital is sufficiently unscarred so ample so much flowing around the people want to stay in a company. Preempt preempt that next round they want to lead be and then the as much of the capital to work as they can on a winner to ensure that they can return enough capital to make their large fund contractive enough to raise a second one. So it's a facet of there. Being too much money in the market is certainly a change. Compared to how things used to work it's actually an inversion but it just goes to show how in twenty twenty the way the world works certainly is at least in my experience new. I'm maybe it was like this back in the late. Ninety something but certainly it feels like a new chapter and I presume zoom. Welcome back to what used to be normal when there's less capital around but I don't see that happening for the next eighteen twenty four thirty six months so this this is the way it's going to be Danny presented for the next while.

Beyond the Helmet Hit: Who is Myles Garrett?

"Myles Garrett delivered enact that will define him for the rest of his. NFL career from now on no matter what he does people will always remember myles Garrett Eric as the guy that could have killed football player on a football field by taking his helmet and swinging it like a weapon. Brown's defensive end myles Garrett has appealed suspension for striking steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph in the head with his own helmet. Who is the player behind that violent image Mitch burned into fans minds? ESPN's Ryan Smith sat down for extensive interviews with Garrett before this fateful season began today today. The story of mild-mannered pass rusher. WHO's now at the center of a football firestorm? It's Thursday November twenty first. I mean this is. ESPN daily presented by Dell small-business yesterday myles myles Garrett went to New York to appeal his suspension. What happened but let's remember this all stems from the game Thursday Night Ryan Smith is a correspondent and legal analyst for ESPN CLEVELAND Browns? Pittsburgh steelers and in the final seconds Mason Rudolph and myles Garrett get into who it and myles Garrett pulls off Mason Rudolph Helmet and hits them with and getting in there was myles Garrett. Ain't took the helmet off off and slammed him on the top of the head. Oh my goodness data and Garett an indefinite suspension at minimum suspended for the rest of the season and the playoffs offs myles Garrett is agent his lawyers they all met in front of an appointed artless common arbitrator for this James Thrash. A person I would hear this case former. NFL Player and presented his case. Any argued from precedent. He basically said that a couple years back. You're a player for the Texans. Antonio Smith swung his helmet at then. Offensive Lineman Richie Incognito for the dolphins and that earned Smith a two game suspension during the preseason and a one game regular season suspension so for Garrett and his people the arguments simple. That's what happened the last time something like this this happened. And that's what should happen for me. Knock a lengthy suspension. I'm getting right now Ryan Myles Garrett. Wasn't the only player involved in the news this today. Mason Rudolph also gave a statement from my involvement. Last week there is no acceptable. Excuse the bottom line is I should have done a better job keeping my composure. In that situation and fall short when I believe it means it'd be a Pittsburgh steeler a member of the NFL. What did you make of that? Here Mason Rudolph is on the day that myles Garrett is having his appeal hearing and he gets up in front of everybody and he apologizes for his. Is Babe you're in this. I found this stunning here. You've got a guy accused of attacking another guy getting lengthy suspension for it and on the day of the hearing the person who arguably I guess you could say has been victimized comes up and talks about his part in it and almost in some ways exonerates the aggressor and in a way showed that. Hey we all had a role in this and nobody should be excused. Everybody has a little bit of blame. I have no ill will towards myles Garrett great respect for his ability as a player and I know this you know if miles could go back you would handle the situation differently Ryan part of the reason I wanted to talk about this story with you is that you spend a lot of time with myles Garrett. You interviewed him for sixty this summer. You got to know him so I was wondering wondering where were you when you first saw the incident. And what was your reaction. I was at home and I was just kind of hanging out flipping through the channels stop by ESPN. And I see something involving myles Garrett and I. It doesn't really compute to me what I'm looking at. But then as I looked closer I realize is exactly what he did. And and I'm hearing the commentary I'm hearing the outrage but the first word that popped in my mind was why I would never ever in any way. Excuse the conduct. It's just an excusable no matter what happened but I spent better couple days with them in our reporting for east sixty and this was a guy who's introverted. This was a guy who in some ways is mild mannered. Heard if you can believe it and this was about as far as anything I would expect from myles Garrett based on the Guy I know what is it that brought him to this point. Well who has the guy you knew. What was it like when you met him? You know what's so interesting. I got to tell you the very first time I met him. He walks downstairs to sit in our interview chair. And he's wearing a queen shirt. He starts talking about Queen loves the group loves. The music is imploring me to go see the movie that kind of is myles Garrett in a nutshell he's exactly nothing like what you would expect from a guy who replays the way he does who appears the way he is his interest are so wide ranging. It was nothing like anything I ever expected. He loves poetry a tree. He's been writing poetry since he was a boy emslie. He walks among the missed unseen. Two most he doesn't exist. He loves COMEX. He's going to comecon this year to attend some events somewhere down the line. I left to go and not to species for. Hey I'm just here to house and finally the costumes. Maybe one day no just myself. He wanted to dress dragon. Ball Z. Character he he loves anime things like that at the beginning of the interview he said to me I was a boy who report Mama for other man to play Publ Myles Myles Garrett. The person is far different from myles Garrett the football player what did you learn about his upbringing. I mean this is a guy who came from a family of athletes so much talent athletically. His mom was an all American American in track. His sister won a national championship. In track is brother played basketball for the nets. And I'm not just talking about average athletes but really really top level athletes another flight. You can do anything like do whatever makes you happy. But you're going to play some sports. He had sort of this. Love hate relationship that that was more hate when it comes to football playing football at that time even though really didn't want to but at that time I really didn't care for bod playing coming back are you can't play vic so played off of the linemen definitely not for me. I played the game and good at it but there was something missing was Kinda and that passion for the game so it was kind of hard to be okay amounts. His First Love was really basketball and at one point when he was in high school athletic director wanted him to play football. so He's a look. You can play basketball as long as you play football. So how does does he go from being a kid who wasn't even sure if he wanted to play the sport to being the number one overall draft pick and it's a really interesting story when he was around around his sophomore year coaches sat him down parents in the room and they sorta gave him an ultimatum. So you're GONNA put your heart in it or you're not what you're gonNA stop waste of People's time laid it all on the line or you can bring your hips almond bus. Sit Down and do I really want this. Do I really WANNA play football. I'm all my life and they say this the get it. No you could be one of the best. It could be the best player in the nation. This guy is a competitor like he wants. That's to win. And I think when he heard that that it could be the best in the country that SORTA gave him permission to sort of go after people to be the aggressive to be fiery on the field. It wasn't about hurting people. It was about showing people that he is the best that he can be the best best and from then on his play chains really started piling up sack numbers by midway through his senior year. Now you got scores scouts else coming in to see him and as he says. Nick Sabin

"ryan smith" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show

"We actually pointed toward the draft instead okay if they get if they hear right on these these first three round picks. They have a chance which they did you lose Jonathan Abram now to injury but those guys play well and now you see what this team is at the watching Miami on Sunday. I don't feel that way at the watching Miami. I don't feel like this thing improves to resemble anything kind of mentioned into to Europe or anything of what an NFL franchise is supposed to look lighten. and I just don't think that's good for the Miami area the Miami Dolphins Organization or the League as a whole. I will say this team you gotTa feel good about it the Houston Texas and they lost I but you gotta feel good about them. What you from Shawn Watson he's been absolutely sensational and then not only that he's playing in division where in Tennessee you can't make up your mind whether it's Mario Tannahill Senate Hill. You Got Nick foles that went down in Jacksonville. Andrew Luck retired in Indy Houston Texans based on what we saw even without JV on cloudy even with Jj Watt registering zero no sacks no tackles laws says nothing it still took the last minute heroics of drew brees along will Lutts to pull us. I it's it's a fifty yard field goal to beat this team on the road in New Orleans which is an extremely difficult place to play in the sound. Watson has been really good already he he was great last year. They're going to nine game winning streak at the losing the first he showed leadership. He showed toughness but to watch him play on Monday night. Especially those special special the two big throws deandre hopkins down the sideline. Kenny stills down the seem to to play drive of seventy five yards to put your team on top that that that's the stuff. Dabo Sweeney was talking about when he was my own and promote actually he's Jordan football and and think about this evening even an you know basketball better than anybody that comparison whenever you compare anybody to Michael Jordan like okay hold on that's right it's Michael Jordan but the one thing about that is we knew Mike wanted the ball in crunch time and we know that from Sean Sean and not only that God for nine losses on his career as a starting quarterback. All of them have been by an average AH four points in the regular season and all of them without protection like you watch this game. Shawn Watson was getting hit. He was having to evade the Russell mini of the throws that he completed and starting starting the game the Andre Hopkins head three drops which never happens and so when you see a guy like this that can play this way Carlos hot begin to run the ball well toward the end of the game as the game got going. I think this team is GonNa be really difficult to beat for the AFC south to be the number one threat to during the Patriots in Kansas City Kansas City but I'm still I'm still worried about Kansas City's defense. You Watch a guy like Gordon issue come into a game complete. The mountain passes that he was able to complete. Obviously they have a book going. I want to see them play play better but when you have a Patrick Mahomes when a guy like tyreek hill can go down but you can have a Sammy Watkins stepping flipping almost have two hundred yards receiving thirteen catches yeah Travis Kelsey. I just feel like there's so much offensively there. It's much too early to put Houston Houston Texans in that category when you don't know what offensive line can do to protect Shawn Watson East a NFC rather the Dallas cowboys. They are who they are. They're looking impressive right right now. I can't deny it. Are you scared to go back. No scare them while so you talking to people bear soon as you touch down dame. I ain't scared of them even though they need to pay back this money. I mean they need to pay Dak Prescott this. You don't have any problem with how long they've kept him waiting I do I do. I thought that should have been the guy gets deal. I yeah and understand how people looked at EH. He wasn't the best player of the three big guys on offense but I thought he was the most important to this team's success so now you have to pay them now you're going to have to you really go to him and make him the highest paid player in the NFL whether you feel like he deserves it or not because this turn and if he continues to play lead the way that he played on Sunday. I think he gets an opportunity to play one man. John's don't have a team it was just saquon Barkley and a bunch of misfits. That's all it. was I mean this call. What is let's call it what it is John Ryan. Let's misfits. I'm just I don't meet and very good no no good. They're not very good at all and so I I weigh that in and then I'll watch the way he played the game or watch. The the way he completed passes the spas that he was able to fit footballs in these are things I saw from deck early on in his career so it shows me that he's making that progression as we've seen a Russell Wilson make as we I'm not comparing him. Tom Brady is but as we head to see Tom Brady make as he continued to grow as a quarterback in this league and if dad can continue to do that this is going to be very difficult to beat this year because early on you so saquon go for the early but defense shedded the last question. I don't even have the cowboys is the best team in the NFC east. I got the eagles right now. I agree with you you. It's not it's not a question. Come into the season. I thought the Eagles were the team to beat in an after a slow start. Carson wentz Guy Rolling they looked every bit as being in the NFC not the NFC's. You think wally yes. I think I think they're the most explosive team offensively on this side of the onus out of uh of conferences and other part of it is though can they stop people outside. We saw we saw the rookie. maclaurin get loose on them. Kano's corner step up and play which they said headed improve but we didn't get to see that on Sunday. My man appreciate you next week same here oh by the way. LSU's look in bed. They might have a chance to ship and they might have says you lose to. The Todd. All started coming in Tuscaloosa. Tuscaloosa didn't notice stop. Let's Bethany. Let's just watch it a little bit more okay. Let's wash it a little bit. More defense comes around a little bit because y'all explosive often but weakest score.

"New patriots receiver Antonio brown is accused of sexually assaulting his former trainer according to a lawsuit filed by the woman in Florida on Tuesday Britney Taylor who says she met brown while they were in college at central Michigan is accusing him of three incidents of assault in twenty seventeen and twenty eighteen including an alleged rape ESPN analyst Ryan Smith notes it's a civil suit well it's interesting I'm glad you mentioned that because it's not as if we're talking about a prison situation anything like this is simply a claim that Antonio brown sexually assaulted this woman and that she is asking for money damages now when you look at a case like this. the standard of proof preponderance of enough of the evidence meaning it's more likely than not that based on the evidence the conduct that she alleges occurred much lower standards so if this ends up in a civil court and this actually goes to proceeding it just moves forward then you've got sort he's saying one thing she's saying something else and a jury has to decide basically who they think is telling the truth. brown's attorney saying brown denies all the allegations so the two had a consensual personal relationship right of course was officially signed by the patriots Monday. after he was being but he was released by the raiders is scheduled to practice for the first time with doing one on Wednesday earlier on Freddie inferred Simmons Albert Breer from VMM QB we start off already know we at all one.

I don't know why. yeah server if you don't like what the stars while the figure out how much do teams know about things like these accusations and I want to stress the word accusations I'm sorry what the upper structure looks like my mom came out. your department better you know all. federal agents former state top. most teams take it upon themselves to have. look local a lot of that stuff is you know all that stuff is sort of. yeah. during business you know like you know how local police figure for your game the knowledge so you can have a relationship law enforcement that are pretty deep usually and so if you want to investigate a player before you sign up before you trade form early other mechanisms to do that and on top of that you know you've got the league security department I'll let you guys know about that but I mean every NFL city the week yeah security officers on retainer and those guys are saying things almost double agents former speaker box. pretty vast network of people been internal how law enforcement that are so it would be out about the usually. out of fear to get information of the public still allows us to get players no worries that maybe a normal business. and I know a lot of players you know we'll go to a concert for the gun. our logo on it night and and they'll be aware. you know and so you know I always sure rolling. yeah. normally they're pretty good idea last did not consult. what's going on here they normally have a pretty extensive network of people that can help us find stuff out. according to ESPN's Adam Schefter the patriots were caught by surprise the team will have to decide how to proceed with a baby who was scheduled to practice on Wednesday patriots releasing a statement Tuesday night which said in part. the league has informed us they will be investigating official word from the NFL but it was included in the patriots

Robert Kraft could face disciplinary action from NFL after prostitution charge

"NFL the story Mike that we're keeping our eyes on the last day and going into our second day here in that is regarding what has happened with Robert Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots as reported by SPN Robert Kraft is facing charges of misdemeanor solicitation of prostitute. After he was twice videotape paying for sex act at an illicit massage parlor in Florida on Friday, a craft who sivy seventy years of age was one of twenty five people involved in the alleged solicitation at the orchids of. Asia day spa in Jupiter Florida craft has denied any wrongdoing. The potential charges come amid a widespread crackdown on sex trafficking in Florida from Palm Beach to Orlando hundreds of arrest warrants have been issued in recent days as a result of a six month investigation and more are expected. So my initial reaction to this story, Mike is I think about Robert Kraft at age seventy seven, and I think about other owners that have put themselves in this in this very precarious situation. Whether it's deals with drugs with it deals with stories like Robert Kraft in the thing that resonates with me. The most is no matter how much money and how much privilege that you have. You are not above the law. And we know that there are circumstances that were a sports figure or someone that has power and money can be able to overcome things we have seen this in sports entertainment for generations with the point is. Is that doesn't make it? Right. And what's happening here is not necessarily slings arrows at the patriots or Tom Brady or their championship legacy because it's not about football. It's not about what's on the field. It's about an owner that has been charged with doing something selfish something to satisfy himself on several occasions on videotape as well, by the way. And I just it just makes the NFL look bad and makes the the patriots organization look bad because he's the face of it someone who's fighting Roger Goodell back and forth about the bounty gate, and this, you know, or or, you know, all the issues that's going on with the patriots. Deflategate. Bottom line is. And is that at seventy seven you gotta realize your public figure what you're doing was wrong. I mean, you you summed it up perfectly right there Jay hood is that you know, the fact that Robert Kraft is the owner of the New England Patriots. He is, you know, the guy responsible for Bill Belichick and also Tom Brady and all the players coming in the signing. The check everything you gotta realize it just because you are an owner, and you have googled and Google's of money does not mean, you can get away with whatever you want. And the fact that there's you know, allegedly to videos, Mr. Kraft's at this at this spa. It doesn't look good for him. It doesn't look good for New England Patriots. And I can. Yeah. I'm anxious is anxious to see how Roger Goodell in the NFL are going to handle this once everything is done legally and the legal system. Besides. What direction they're going to go with things what Goodell is going to do as far as a punishment for Robert Kraft? Let's go to Ryan Smith. He does a great job on the legal side of things we see them when outside the lines all the time. Ryan Smith talking about Robert Kraft's legal defense. There has to be some sort of agreement for this to be something that he can be convicted on and not only that there has to be some sort of consent. He says this was a consensual sexual act, then he will not be convicted on then that becomes his defense. So maybe what's being set year is despite what they feel police that they have in evidence. Bob Kraft might be saying this is a consensual act. Of course, we don't know yet. But that would be one of the biggest defenses to this chart. Also, some thoughts from Adam Schefter talking about how from the NFL standpoint. How craps got the deal with the NFL consequences? No matter. What happens legally is in all probability going to have to take action. Because the league is talk about Tommy time. Again, anybody who brings unwanted attention to the NFL which with this would be qualified as would be subjected discipline? Now, you're talking about a man was billions of dollars morning not a factor in terms of what do we could do to discipline them in terms of the penalty time away from an inordinate? Jason ate lunch would be something that is going to have to look at. Also, Jeff Darlington had some thoughts as well. And this is an interesting thought here from Jeff talking about how crafters involved with solicitation, necessarily trafficking. Robert Kraft is not being charged with anything to do with human trafficking. At this point. It is solicitation of prostitution. It is a misdemeanor. So right now, we're talking about misdemeanors as it pertains Robert Kraft, again, an incredibly uncomfortable conversation, but one where we need to make clear delineations. Is from Jeff Darlington. Mike, not not uncomfortable for me. I don't know about you not uncomfortable. Found uncomfortable because because once again. No matter how much you make and how how much generational wealth. You have. You are a face of a franchise, and you don't have the wherewithal to understand that because you public face. Everyone knows who you are that you figured that you want to do something because you have the privilege to do. So you think you can just go into a place like this this orchids of Asia's day spa. And do what you like. And that doesn't work that way. No matter how much money you have money will only take you so far. And again, I mean, you know. This is a step by step process on how everything's going to be done. And I'm just curious on what Mr. Kraft's halfses has to say. I mean, I know they you know, they released a statement yesterday. You know, denying that they've done anything wrong and stuff. But at some point, you know, a statement only go so far. So I wanna hear, you know, just just as simple thoughts from Mr. Kraft's. I'm being in this situation. I mean, you know, I is he embarrassed by it. I mean is he mad? I mean, just why why why I if the video turns out to be true that he's under twice. Why why was he even there? I mean, there's just so many questions that remain answered that likely Mr. craft is the only one that can answer Dickerson and hood on ESPN radio and ESPN app. If you're looking for what's happening with Robert Kraft is not a comfortable for you. Not to talk about you know, some comfortable was uncomfortable with sex trafficking. That's uncomfortable. And that's what's unfortunate as the store. Says the SPN dot com. The potential charges come amid a widespread crackdown on sex trafficking in Florida from Palm Beach Orlando you, and I'm not saying that he was involved in that. But he's, but he's part of on this list of people that were part of of the this misdemeanor that he's been charged with solicitation of prostitution. So that actually is more of a broader conversation that was happening Robert Kraft because it's not like we haven't seen owners put themselves in a in a bad light for the organization because you being in Indianapolis representing ten seventy in Indianapolis, you have covered Jim Irsay the owner of the colts going through sobriety tests and drugs and driving. While intoxicated. That was quite a story for you to cover back and fourteen. It was definitely it was it was a huge story. I mean with the earth say, you know, you know, having to get some counseling done and everything I mean, you know, I it wasn't about the story. Didn't go from. It wasn't just Jim earth. The owner of the Indianapolis Colts jimmer say the person, you know, could he overcome, you know, the issues he was dealing with the person would he, you know, stick, you know, be able to not be able to avoid going down that path to get down the road, which, you know, all indications are he's been fine since then I mean, the NFL handed down the suspension, but I will tell you now once this happened in the March of two thousand and fourteen nothing was resolved for the NFL until September wants Jim Irsays legal case guide done, but up at debt does that would six five six months of it. That's all that was talked about. It was not about Andrew lucked the football player and the colts, you know, continuing to build on their success there eleven and five the from two thousand thirteen it was all about Jim mercy. And that I expect the same thing that happened in New England is not going to be about Tom Brady and Bill Belichick relationship is gonna retire would not it's going to be all about. Robert Kraft, and what happened? Earlier

"ESPN app as straight talk brought to you by straight talk wireless, best phones, best networks, no contracts. So when. We look at the situation we heard from Mary Jo White. The lead investigator, we heard from urban Meyer the head coach. Gene Smith, the athlete director in Dr Michael Drake, Ohio State university's president, all of whom seem to basically say, and I wanna read. This is the summary of why urban Meyer is being suspended. There's so much information to take in here guys and I curse you the twenty three page document of how the the investigative committee went through. This is available for you online. There are plenty of people on Twitter who are pulling great clips from this from this document. Plenty of people trying to summarize it as best they can. We're trying to do that here in a situation where urban Meyer suspended three games in a situation where it seems like it should have been either you are fired or you are not suspended based on what we have found. And instead this is the statement that we got, although neither urban Meyer nor gene Smith condoned or covered up Al alleged domestic abuse by Smith, they failed to make sufficient managed. -ment action relating disactivates misconduct and retain an assistant coach was not performing as an appropriate role model for OSU. Student athletes permitting such misconduct continue is not consistent with the values of the university and reflects poorly on coach Meyer athletic director Smith and the university. They're handling this matter did not exhibit the kind of leadership in high standards that we expect our director head coach and assistant coach on all the football staff, urban Meyer suspended through September second, two thousand eighteen for the games on September one, eight and fifteen without pay. Gene Smith is also suspended without pay during that same time period. So they're suspended because this looks bad or they're suspended because they didn't follow the rules because if they didn't follow the rules, this is very cut and dry. Again, our legal analyst, Ryan Smith, as I looked to people to try and help summarize this as concisely as possible and difficult endeavor. But when you try and we'd through because there's a lot in this that makes urban Meyer look bad. There's a lot in this that makes urban Meyer looked like he had something to hide when you pour through these documents and you see the conversations had that the committee is very Frank about it makes it seem like urban Meyer had something to hide. Him wasn't disclosing a lot of information and he can be a liar in a bad guy without having done something worthy of being fired in this situation. But then when you hear this from Ryan Smith, there seems to have been out. It's a slap on the wrist because you look at what they had failed to them. And I was the committee's thoroughness and all of this looking who everything finding the information, but they reported in their finding that he failed to report. What happened that he deliberately lied. These are things that he's contract could had led him to be fine. Word for cause, which means wouldn't get paid like like, that's true. And Ryan Smith is greatest job, and it's one of the best people we have around here. And if that's true, then this means Ohio State looked at all that and decided now we'd rather keep him because we like winning games. Like, I don't know what other conclusion I'm supposed to draw. If that's the case as we poured through this morning, we'll continue to kind of update the situation. We'll hear from some of the folks around college football, including some Ohio State alumni. Because this situation you could point the spotlight in a lot of different places. You can point the spotlight of what happened in big ten media day. You can point the spotlight at the text message. Exchanges conversations are Meyer head, but when it comes to being fired, it really to me boils down to that. They're urban Meyer report this the way that he needed to up the channels at Ohio State. And there are things that we've heard from the lead investigator that call into question. What over Meyer head to do in this at all? How much of this falls on gene Smith bottom line is most everyone. Associated with us on the Ohio State side comes out looking pretty bad. I, that's pretty easy. Anyone who watched the press conference last night can notice that the rest of it not quite as straightforward straight, talk wireless nationwide coverage on America's largest. Most dependable, four g. l. t. networks. Now switching gears entirely in the world of actual sports and not very serious press conferences..

"Because realistically, there have been reports that there's at least a conversation about involving Lamar Jackson at other positions in the game while they're waiting for him to get on the field as a quarterback, which I hate. I hate that anymore. It'll be interesting over the course of the preseason to see if that actually becomes reality. If they try him at different positions just to get him in the game. Alternately, I mean, I'm with you when you're dynamic as he was in college when you did the things that he did and when you trade it up to get him at the end of the first round, you told the world right there. He's your quarterback of the future, and I don't want him treated any differently as the quarterback of the future than Baker mayfield's being treated than. Andrew luck was treated the Marcus mariota, Derek, Carr. All of these guys. When you have your quarterback of the future, you have a responsibility to do one thing, and that's develop him to be his best and then surround them with the people that can help them be even better. That's the piece I want to see for the ravens, especially because we're all tired of the is Joe flacco elite question. So hopefully we can have we can have it ended this year by Lamar coming and taking over and proven a lot of people wrong. Yeah. And you know, it'll it might take longer than we'd like fits because right now flacco still there guy, and as much as flacco looks like a guy who needs to be replaced until until that happens. We will probably not see as much Jackson as we'd like. But there have been reports that they would really like to use them on the field at the same time. So that means he might get out there even if it's not as the starting quarterback, and that will be exciting for ravens fans to see as well. You know, are you someone who tends to watch the hall of fame game regardless of whether your team, isn't it? No, you? Yeah, I've got. I've got it on. In ABI on in the studio and a few minutes when it starts, it's riveting to me. It's absolutely it's the signal that again, you're you're, they're finally, you're only days away. It always thinks now I have to wait for the raiders to play, and that is the unfortunate thing because I don't care preseason or not. I'm all into watch it. Are you going to watch? I mean, it's the Bayer, so you're gonna watch my DVR set. I'm ready to go. Like I said before, I think one of the most important things is getting a look at the rules and hopefully so our boy, Adam Amine and Kyle Brandt to used to be on the real world and is now I believe. And then he was with Jim Rome. And now I think is an NFL network guy are the preseason on the call for forbears local broadcast here. So we'll get to hear our boy Adam Amine doing the call for his hometown team, and hopefully those guys will be really up to speed and help us through sort of what we're watching because I think that's going to help viewers as they adjusted the new rules and why or why not? Maybe they were successful kickoff plays or why or why not? Certain players are struggling with with. New rules and adjustments. So that's exciting. And then and then like I said, seeing the young people in the new faces bears picked up a lot of people in the offseason. They only won five games last year. So a lot of room to improve its Spain on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. The opposite of new faces. Diangelo hall is retired and in his announcement to retire yesterday he, this was his quote if I could have played against Cutler more, I probably would be in the hall of fame by now, but it didn't quite work out that is spectacular from somebody that you know show a little in my raider bias here, somebody that got a megadeal design with Oakland and then found himself cut after a handful of games because he was so bad there. So you know, maybe maybe Jay Cutler quarterback to everybody else in the AFC west. You wouldn't have been a bust. As I mean, he did have four picks against Jay Cutler once and one game. I mean is something that should never happen..

"We just talked to Kevin Seaford about some of what we're going to see tonight. And obviously the hall of fame game starts and even for me as a kid, I always look forward to the hall of fame game watched it every year. It means football season's officially here I'm that guy. The kickoff policy, though, in it's not look. It's not great radio to try and explain this to you guys the best way to say it is. It's gonna look a lot more like a punt than a kickoff and there are no more wedge blocks. You're not going to have three guys, two guys standing up before to to create a mini wall. So it's going to look a lot like a punt. I do think there's an interesting piece of that though that's going to affect early parts of the season, sir. Because realistically, so much of the time right now, our guys trying to figure out who's gonna make a roster and it's the bottom thirty roster more often than not that impact special teams. That's also the part that has the most churn. So guys that right now we're fighting for an opportunity to move up are not necessarily getting as many reps doing kick coverage as they would doing the regular season. And so if you're especially if you're a medium or bad team. That's gonna have a lot of churn on that bottom to the roster. I think early in the season, you could see a lot of confusion about who's going to do what penalties, and also blown assignments as everybody tries to figure out how to how to navigate the new rule book because there just isn't enough time to get it figured out in the in the training camp era, especially I think it's going to impact early season games. I agree with you, and you know, you assume that coaches are going to be able to look behind stuff like penalties and flags at a time like this because there's so much learning of new rules. But that's just another tiny little potential. Sticking point for players trying to make a team is if you make mistakes, write, if you if you cost your team, you have to hope that they can see the forest for the trees on the kind of talent you're bringing because you're gonna get fewer opportunities. There's me more opportunity potentially for free to make a mistake and not have the new rules of the new rules down. I think tonight obviously as a bear, STAN, I'm going to watch. For the new guys, especially the acquisitions in the off season that have short up our wide receiver core. I would like to see Mitch, but he's not going to be out there. So you know there won't be the excitement of seeing how he developed with some better targets. But on the other side, that quarterback story is very interesting because we'll be seeing Robert Griffin the third right after a one year sabbatical from football, getting injured right when it gets to the Browns. We'll see him again and more importantly, Lamar Jackson. And right now he's below RG three on the depth chart. So that means he could come in and actually spend more time than RG three on the field to likely be going up against Moore backup defenders in the bears out there with the the second. And third, you know, talented players on the offense as well. So that's gonna make it a little tougher for us to get a look. But he was so explosive in college, and I really was rooting for him at draft time. And I, I thought all the conversation about trying to change positions was complete BS. So I am secretly rooting for him to beginning with tonight. Just do some. Amazing things that get people talking and kind of get that BS narrative kind of separated from his name. We're probably not going to get a lot of gadget plays or some of the stuff that will be most exciting for a guy who's got wheels like that. I think they'll keep it simple, but I'll be rooting for for him for sure the gadget plays. They're one of the things that you mentioned that I think Raymond's fans are going to keep their eye on throughout the course of the preseason..

"The ravens, and the bears don't have their top draft, pick roquan Smith in camp. He's not going to be available tonight in part because of allegedly that new hitting rule, the the essentially the targeting rule coming to the NFL. It seems like everyone's so confused about this and and the NFL tried to kind of clarify things recently after the eagles meeting with the referees didn't go so well, what do you make of this rule? And again, how do you think it actually manifest itself in us watching the game in what we see? Well, I mean, the rule is is to address something that potentially happens on every play. And so that's why there's been so much infusion of people up in arms because you can literally look at almost every play and see time when a player lowers how has had. It's not always hit somebody sometimes running back lowers his head. To try to brace himself from contact. Sometimes an office or defensive linemen a lower as head to try to get a bull rush. There's all different ways when offensive lineman holes around the corner. So you hear this bra very broad rule and you say my God, you know, they're going to be throwing a flag on every play if they enforce the strictly. And that's really the where the rubber will meet the road is how strictly will officials. You know, administrate this, this rule in my strong sense is that they are are not gonna try to call every single time. A player lowers his head because they can't see it every time you might see it on replay. You might see it on all twenty two, but they're only gonna call it. I think when they see it from beginning to end, so I don't know how many times it's really going to have to be called for offense. Lineman defensive lineman. I think it's gonna be in the in the cases where almost in the past we've seen plays and say, jeez, that looks like. You know, that's a hit helmets helmet hit. Why wasn't that a penalty? I think those are the cases that we're going to see and so I could be wrong, could be complete chaos in might is very well. We'll be chaos or in the preseason, but usually the preseason so boring, the chaos might be preferable. So I, I, I think it will. They'll, there's been a lot of, you know, there's a lot of angst and hand wringing, and I understand that. But I think from from a fan perspective, you know, you'll maybe see one or two more ejections over the course of the year than we saw last year and maybe one or two more penalties a game than we saw last year, but I and and it's going to over time, provide an incentive for players to get their head out of contact in any way that they can. But I don't think it's going to be something that is like series the series chaos over the course of the regular season Kevin real quick. Before we let you go with kick off and with the penalties you're talking about here, given the limitations. That these guys have them practice and contact. They can make them practice in the time that they can practice. Do you think teams are going to have a bigger learning curve over the first few weeks of the season trying to acclimate might be, you know, there's the NFL teams are getting pretty good at devising drills to work on tackling technique without actually tackling people without sort of breaking the the, you know, the the no contact rules that you're talking about in the offseason. There's a lot of new drills and new equipment and new techniques that give players a chance to learn how to approach a guy, you know, hit with your shoulder, have your head up and keep the head out of the way. So I don't think it's like they can only practice avoiding this penalty on full contact full pads, live training camp practices or preseason games. There's other opportunities and we'll, but clearly the games in the preseason or the most important you guys can follow him on Twitter at Seaford. ESPN Kevin. We appreciate your time.

"Yeah, exactly. I mean, there's there's there's no Devin. Hester right now. Maybe there is one in the league, but he just hasn't had enough opportunities. And so that's that's something that there they, they, I think this is more of a health and safety rule than anything, but I think they're hoping that will be a entertaining consequences that as fans will be able to see more returns or more big returns. And we've been seeing Kevin, I wanted to get your thoughts because I sat to a seminar college football the last couple of days and one things the officials talk there about is trying to limit returns in college. They're trying to get rid of. They're trying to lessen, let's say that way the the number of returns they're happening because of player safety wise, the college game in the National Football League, not seeing this issue the same way. Well, the interesting thing is that's pretty much the track the NFL was on up until this year. They, you know, they changed the rule about where the ball was kicked off from. They changed the rule about where the touchback would be marked from the twenty to twenty five and they did everything they could to try to create less. Returns because they knew the numbers and the college. They know the numbers that can cousins are up to five times as likely to occur on kickoff or kick off returns, then on regular plays. And so they're only answered up until this year was to just try to keep reducing returns. And so you just reduce the times the opportunities to to suffer a concussion. But one thing the NFL found is that they were having concussions on touchback as well, because you don't always you don't know what's going to be a touchback until the end of the play anyway. So there's still some really big collision. So I think that's why the NFL, at least for this year is going, is this the one year experiment? It was only approved for one year and it might not work. They might just have to do something more drastic than this, and that includes eliminating it altogether. But I think that they decided that there was a limit to how many concussions they could prevent, even by trying by changing rules to reduce the returns. And so they're trying something different for one year and we'll see if it works, and if it doesn't, then potentially something more dramatic will happen. In for next year, talking to Kevin Seaford on the shell Pennzoil performance line at Spain and Fitz on ESPN radio getting ready for the hall of fame game featuring my Chicago Bears and.

"We're going to go straight to the shell Pennzoil performance line because football's back tonight as it's been pointed out all over social media. This starts the trend. There won't be Thursday for the rest of the year where you don't have some sort of NFL game. You can watch. You're welcome America. We're all excited about that me more than most and I get that. That means I have a problem. So we're going to go to the shell Pennzoil performance line with Kevin. See for joins us and Kevin part of the reason all eyes are going to be on the game tonight. Is that some some place they're gonna look different, not the least of which is the kickoff. So when you look tonight, when you watch tonight, what rule change are you going to have the is on the most. The two ones are going to be the kickoff rule in the helmet rule. The kickoff one is gonna look a lot different. You're going to have eight guys near the near on the receiving team near the the ball, and only three guys back and the guys in the coverage came or not. Gonna have any head start. They're just going to be lined up on the line and they can't. They can't leave start covering until the boss kick. And so the theory is there will be less high speed collisions because it's kinda more like a pun. You're not running at people you're running with them to try to block. And then the hope is that they'll actually be more returns because the re the return will have more space. 'cause the coverage team can't get down fast enough, but there's a lot of questions as far as how it's going to be officiated, how teams will what strategies team will you teams will use? And that's what the preseason is is going to be for one of the many not to get too much in the weeds here, but one of the many concerns about how it'll be officiate. Is that you can no longer the the the receiving team can no longer have wedge blocks, but they can't have double teams. And so officials are going to have to figure out whether something was when if there's two guys blocking one guy that the result of a wedge blog or just a simple double team by eligible return guys. And so that is one of the many things we'll be looking at the helmet rule. We're all you know, much of the NFL players and coaches, I think, are up in arms about the helmet rule because they're convinced that on almost every play. Somebody does something that conceivably falls under the rules which this new rule, which is, you can't lower your head to initiate contact with an opponent. My sense all along that these penalties overtime will only be called on really obvious situations. And it won't be they are asking players to make a big change in terms of the way they hit each other whenever they can. But I don't think it's going to become an injection fast, and I don't think the intent is for it to be a flag fest. It might be in the preseason as we get. Used to things, but I don't think it will be that way when the regular season begins Kevin. I guess that's what I was going to ask you. What can we as fans expect? Because the average fan might not notice how a team is strategizing differently. We will notice if officials throw a lot of flags, we probably won't notice if officials miscall ING, things they're now supposed to on a kickoff is there's so many moving pieces. So how do you expect this will actually manifest itself in terms of our viewing process? Well, hopefully there will be more returns coming on kickoffs, right? Yeah. Yeah. Hopefully they'll be more returns. I mean, that is the genuine hope of a lot of people who designed this thing is that because the coverage team can't get a head start there. They can't get down the field quite as fast. So when the receiver catches it, he's going to have more space in front of him and be more inclined to to go for a return rather than take a touchback or or let the ball go into the end zone. So that from a fan perspective, I think that's a big. Thing and I and because we all know the kickoff has become a pretty boring play. You know, there's touchback on almost two-thirds of them now, and so that..

"So there would have become all of a sudden it seems like it would be umbrella in at that point. So I if he found out at any point since two thousand fifteen, he would have a responsibility to say something the minute he signed that allegation. That's going to be part of this battle of over a settlement, ultimately, isn't that what most of us things going to happen? Right? There's going to be some sort of an attempted to settlement to make this go away. And if that's the case, those of the pieces that are going to really become key to a settlement which is going to take us to buy out right because his buyouts thirty eight million dollars, Sarah. There's a complication here because if you are a mega loss, Ohio State fan and you don't think are Meyer should be like, oh, you're probably also talking about many of the donors there, right? Many of the people that are actually paying his salary. Now you gotta go to people that don't wanna see him. Let go. And ask them to help with thirty eight million dollar buyout. That's not an easy thing for the school to figure out. Yeah, absolutely. It's, it's again, we're talking about the football ramifications, but they're meaningful here and Ryan Smith admitted as much if Ohio State. And I think we, by the end of that conversation got to the point where we realized that best case scenario is not that they somehow twist their way into keeping him and then try to convince people being recruited, boosters fans. Everybody else that he's he's around the best case is that they don't have to pay the full thirty eight million dollar bio, right? They come to agreement or they find cause for firing because they gotta pay a new coach on top of whatever they owe him. If anything, when he leaves and they have to try to move on to something new without carrying the stain of this, which will be difficult with a guy with the name is big as urban Meyer also take the one word you said and change it slightly. They may have to pay new coaches because one thing we don't know point is who else new on the staff who else may have been around it, whatever. Tendered, they're gonna hold urban to. They'll have to hold the rest of that staff to. You could see wholesale changes in a coaching staff quickly, and then they're going to have to turn around and bring in an all new staff. We're gonna keep breaking it out throughout the course of the night, but coming up next, what.

"Thanks for your time. We appreciate you pay guys. Thanks so much for shit a lot there for us to react to you. Well, we're going to react to someone what Ryan just gave us give us your thoughts. We'll give you our thoughts next Spain and Fitz on the ESPN radio and the ESPN app, Spain and fits. We just got a great little education there. And if anyone missed Ryan Smith legal analyst, some great stuff from him on how all of this breaks down. I'm sure you'll be able to check it out later tonight on the podcast in, but Sarah, one of the more complicated issues here is a title nine issue that Ryan talked a little bit about an not only what it means for the university, but what it means for coach Meyer what it means for his contracts. It gets a little gray gets a little murky in a little confusing for most people. Yeah, it's really important. I also want to point out. And we should have said this at the beginning, and I think hopefully it goes without saying, but we should be willing to to put it into words, the bravery of Courtney Smith coming out about this, just seeing the reaction that reporters get in discussing this. I can only imagine what's what's coming at her from Ohio State fans from urban Meyer supporters from anybody who wants to victim blaming these situations. So her bravery and coming out about this is is really commendable and she and anybody else who goes to the should be our primary focus. Now, of course, we're sports show right? And so we're going to talk about the sports ramifications of incidents like this, but I just wanted to put that out there because I think it's important that we always kind of remember that very easy to get stuck in the what does this mean for the football team. And that's how we get these positions in the first place. Right is prioritizing that over anything else. So that's for the title nine up by just wanted to point out Dan Murphy and Paul Evine had been doing some investigating into the specifics of it and the president of the association of title nine administrators sent out this. Line about how basically and Ryan Smith mentioned this it. It isn't as clear that if somebody is not a student or employee or on the facilities that they fall into the same protections. And so it says the protections of title nine extend to employees and students and conceivably to anyone's right to access the school's facilities, but they would not cover misconduct generally by employee's that does not incur within school properties or programs, or that occurs within school properties are programs where the parties involved are not accessing school services. So in that case, you'd think okay is off the hook, but school policies may mandate reporting more broadly than title. Nine does. So failing to report may still be a policy violation, even where that report is not mandated from the employees by title nine. And so if you compare that with a slightly broader OSU policy, which seems to indicate, and this is part of Myers extension that he'd promptly reports to Ohio states title nine at lenox any known violation of Ohio states sexual misconduct. Policy, right? Not the title nine policy, not the umbrella policy, but these specific Ohio State sexual misconduct policy which includes but isn't limited to sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual exploitation, intimate violence and stalking involving any student faculty or staff, or that is in connection with the university sponsored activity or event. So involving any. So it involved as a staff member. Right. And then if purposes of this unknown violation means a violation or allegation of a violation of title nine that coaches aware of or has reasonable cause is taking place or may have taken place in them when you go to the sexual misconduct policy. But the school does say no charges necessary, no convictions or criminal offenses. It can amount to as much as just an allegation. One of the difficulties trying to figure out as people are trying to justify. I shouldn't say justify people are trying to figure out what is extension means and how that will affect the timing of these allegations. Versus the timing of when he signed his allegation scientists, extension, Ryan Smith did a nice job of pointing out that even when he signed the extension, he's still would have been aware of something that happened on his..
