"Booth asked, hey, man, what are you trying to do hasten my retirement, green replied, and of conversation. Booth wrote other conversations though didn't end booth had veteran Dallas, linebacker, LeRoy Jordan described his worst injuries, and he noted that Jordan was playing with pain from his hip to his foot because of nerve damage. Booth noted, the Jordan was wealthy from cattle in real estate and ask them, why do you go on knowing that you could ruin the rest of your life by playing a few games too many Jordan replied by the time on fifty five. I feel learned enough to medically treat me cut the nerves maybe and relieve the pain. If they can't, I can accept that booth talked to more Steelers and Cowboys Steelers running back rocky Bleier who had fought in Vietnam, told him that surviving injuries in war and football were pretty much the same. He talked to ex players to the patriots team doctor to a sport psychologist and two Peter Gant the NFL player who had just written the scathing novel north Dallas. Forty about the NFL booth asked reporters and players to describe the worst NFL injuries they ever saw, and everyone complied in gruesome detail which booth printed. You don't have to go skulking around this lavish football festival. So hoop and frivolous on the surface to collect such memories booth wrote once you just slightly tapped the source, they come gushing at you like a torrent booth, discovered what I would rediscover thirty years later when I reported my NFL book that the players want someone to know what it's really like to play in the NFL. I was amazed at what they were telling me booth would tell Joe Nocera other reporters who overheard booths interviews were to. They were fascinated booth said, but they had no use for the material will post a link on the show page to a PDF of death and football, which I obviously highly recommend everyone reading and Jono Sarah's column and to the Boston Globe obituary. For Clark booth, Josh. What's your Tony stone? Last week HBO released a clip from LeBron James's new series. The shop in which LeBron is joined by the likes of snoop Dogg and Odell Beckham and John Stewart to talk about life and the issues of the day. And the fact that snoop is not going to give back the money. He got for playing a show for Libyan dictator, Muammar Qaddafi breaking news. One of the more interesting tidbits came when Stewart asked James about the pressure James's kids are under in particular, his oldest son LeBron James junior, I still regret give him a fourteen roll my name because of that. Right. Like when I was younger, obviously, I didn't have a dad. So my wholesale whenever I have a kid, not always gonna be Julia. I'm going to everything that this man didn't do. They want to experience. Things that I didn't experience only could do is give them the blueprint and it's up to them to take their own course. Whenever that time LeBron seems like a good dad. LeBron junior seems like a good basketball player. I just did a post on Sunday night about the video of what's being touted as his first dunk. And he also appears to be good at shooting and dribbling and other things that you need to do as a basketball player. But it is going to be hard on the cat and on his younger brother, Brice, just like it's been hard on Michael. Jordan sons here is Jordan from his infamous two thousand nine hall of fame speech. Obviously, you see my kids, you know, Jeffrey Mark is jasmine. I love you guys. You guys represent a lot of me. You a lot of different personalities, your mom, you represent them as well. You know, I think that you guys have a heavy burden. I wouldn't wanna be you guys if I had to, you know, because of all the expectations that you have to deal with. I mean, look around you the judge thousand dollar tickets for this for this whole event, it used to be two hundred bucks. But I pay, you know, I had no choice. I had a lot of family friends I had to bring in. So thank you all for raising ticket price. I guess. Uncomfortable after Michael Jordan seems like not such a good dad just based on this very short excerpt from a hall of fame speech, man, what a weird and bitter guy, maybe maybe a great dad though, who knows? But anyway, in two thousand and five, the Washington Post did a story about his son, Jeffrey..

"Globe booth was praised for his range. He was a sports correspondent for two local stations for thirty five years, but he also covered presidential elections, the collapse of the Soviet empire, the fortieth anniversary of d day, new popes, and he did it on television. And in print, he even wrote his own obituary, which the globe quoted at length. He was the man. Bob Ryan told his old paper, whether it was religion, politics. Six or sports booth was uniformly described as anything. But a guy who just showed highlights and read scores at five and eleven. He was a writer and a storyteller whose work transcended sports. And even his sports work often transcended sports on Twitter. Joe Nocera mentioned the piece that booth wrote from Super Bowl, ten in Miami in one thousand nine hundred seventy six. A story that no Sarah said, influenced him at the time and which he ended up writing about in the New York Times. Thirty six years later booths piece was the cover story in the January twenty eighth nineteen seventy six edition of the real paper and alternative weekly in Boston. That would die a few years later to give you a sense of booth place in Boston at age, thirty five. The headline was plucked booth at the Super Bowl and then in bigger type in all caps, death and football. If the objective of the game is to hit with matchless ferocity booth wrote, then logically these must be the people who. Who had hit the hardest and have therefore absorbed the hardest hits. So booth asked the players from the two teams, the Cowboys and the Steelers to describe the violence and physical and emotional consequences of playing football today after all the scientific research and public exposes about the ravages of the game on the brain and the rest of the body. This seems like an obvious story, but in the nineteen seventies almost no one asked players about the effects of football. So booth story is really a remarkable piece of journalism as much for the horror stories told in it as for booth. Journalistic curiosity, helping to reveal the mind of the player. So when Steelers lineman mean, Joe Greene told booth that he didn't wanna think about missing the Super Bowl with the pinched nerve in his neck that he had endured for two months booth did what other reporters wouldn't have thought to do..

"Why aren't there more black swang for decades now. I don't. I don't think so. I, I think in more at the grassroots level, I don't think it's necessarily usually baseball because even doing all star weekend. Well, off a week, they had the Congressional Cup and they had maybe eight or ten Rb acting come in play in that timely. It was things from Compton, Philly, New Orleans and your Puerto Rico, Texas. And you know, they were kids of color, so I don't think that's necessarily it. I think makes major league baseball is is doing their part. I think it has to be driven more at the grassroots and local level key. Keep. Someone I'm gonna asked ask me. you a question about little league baseball. Generally, one hurdle that faces African American teams in African American neighborhoods in little league in predominantly white institutions like little league is suspicion. I'm thinking of the twenty fifteen Chicago team that was stripped of the title because of boundary issues. Are you conscious of that that you might face some higher level of scrutiny whether it's trust to fight or not? Yeah, yeah. I mean to me being something different, I think that comes with the terror- territory and especially with us getting all of this coverage and I'm trying to tamp down just because of that. I'm but I would say it is a little league baseball. Well, since that happened little league baseball has done a great job of checking paperwork even before we get there. So they checked, they double check any trouble check. So. You know, I'm I'm not worried, but you're, you're gonna always have those kinds of stories out there. Keith. We should let you go before asking about the name of the league. You chose to name it after Mamie. Peanut Johnson. She was a pitcher in the negro leagues on one of three women that played in the negro leagues. She got to watch these boys play last year in the championship game that they lost. And she died recently. Tell us about your decision to to name the league after her. So actually met her into anti fifteen after seeing her talking to Monet Davis, you know, at the literally where theory. So someone introduced me two hundred. We went over to her house and we basically act her per mission to name the league after her so that we could keep her legacy going. And she said, yes, instantly. So you know, last year was pretty special because you know, the kids actually made it to the championship game last year, and she was there to see the kids play. So you know, it was good for her to really see. You know where the program is basically heading. So you know, and she, she passed away this past year and we're, we're, we're trying to do it for her and make her proud. Keith Barnes is the founder of the Maimi peanut Johnson little league in Washington DC. See his team is off to Bristol, Connecticut, with hopes of making it the Little League World series in williamsport in August key. Thanks for joining us. Thank you. Got. Now it is time for after balls and Mamie. Peanut Johnson got at minimum. Her third, hang inlands. It listen mention on this week show in two thousand sixteen weeded peanut Johnson's for after balls.

"So we're really trying to change that narrative trying to change the culture. And I think we're we're getting there and I think you're going to benefit from what you just said kief. I'm, I'm talked to a couple of middle school principals in northwest DC predominantly white, northwest DC, which which draw kids from all over the city. And I'm one of the reasons they still have a middle school football team is as one principal told me is because black kids need something to do after school. They don't wanna buy soccer. They don't wanna. Play baseball. How do you begin? I mean, is this a way to begin to change the culture? And what other hurdles do you have to overcome to get baseball to a position of greater prominence among black kids in DC. I think it is. I think there's a lot of, you know, fractions out there that you know trying to help this movement. You have RBI. You have cab, whip gained like everybody's trying to trying to grow the game. But I think marketing some of the African American superstars best plan major league baseball. I think that'll help. And also I think just a focus to have kids play multiple sports and matches focus on one thing. I think that'll help out a lot as well, because if you if you look at the set for for people who get drafted like eighty, eight percent of them play multiple sports, either in high school or college. We've talked a lot about the big picture here. I wanna talk about the kids on this team. What would you say are your strengths and weaknesses on the field? You wanna scouting report before you guys oughta Bristol. I'm gonna get down to that to the actual games here. Here's and Keith got to say here to a DC team has never. I don't think advanced to williamsport. We gotta put some passionate on. These kids come on. Gotta to do it and that I think what a I drink is really our spe- if the kids can put the ball in play, you know, with the short field of the literally games, I think the base the bases are sixty feet you. You know, we can beat out a lot of ground ground balls and balls. We tend to hit in the gap. We can. You know, we can go for doubles and you know, sometimes triples. I think when we give points maybe pitching like if you look at old cliff of the world, everything's like they have guys that can bring it in the, you know, low to mid seventies and and they have more than just one. So I think out kid, they're good with their control, but we don't have that really big of Belotti. Other teams may have you don't have you don't have one of those like six foot tall, twelve year olds. No, we do not app tell the kids. I'll maybe five, six like we have really short team. We're, we're not a big Tim, but we're fascinated like one out of all the kids. He four, nine and seventy two pounds like he's a little thing, so so you know, and we have a couple of kids like that. But if they put the ball in play, they can fly, they can run. So you know, that's that's the whole point. And you know, being able to. Adjust to that kind of speed once we get up there. But I will say this though, like one thing, what think about baseball in DC like it has really gotten better like with the growth of the new leave Vancouver city Capitol Hill. Like for the past thirty years, it's just been north west and caps as so now all of the tournament games are competitive, which really. Prepares who ever wins DC up in Bristol. I mean, we were one in three in pool play like we didn't, but we just yet hot the last two games we barely squeaked into the final four of the tournament. So it seems like this is really good for the nationals and for you guys, it seems like this is a no brainer for major league baseball to have. You know, all of its teams, you know, have academies and sponsored teams like you guys. Do you feel like baseball has been a little bit slow on the uptake with that? I mean, there's been kind of talk about why aren't there more black players?.

"Private hitting lessons are about seven hundred and fifty dollars a year. So that's a minimum of two thousand dollars a year on the low end to play competitive baseball. And he noted also that travel soccer which is also plays is three thousand dollars a year. So you begin to get a sense of what you're up against. These kids are not from that. Those sorts of means, are they? No, not at all. Actually we only charge twenty dollars per season for I'll literally program and even then some families really, really have to basically scholarship because they may not have at that time. You know, have the me for. Travel baseball, but the academy did start a program called be hustle, which is traveled light. So we play in northern Virginia travel Lee and they kind of like fun that whole program. So if not for time travel, but the kids do get a sense of travel baseball. So in the front page, Washington Post story about your team's accomplishment. I'm in mentioned that in two thousand seventeen African Americans made up just seven point. One percent of opening day roster spots and major league baseball, which is the lowest percentage sixty years. I've read interviews with major league players, black players who've said that they were actually made fun of by their peers for playing baseball when they were growing up was like a hard sell on some of these kids to be like, you should play baseball. It's a fun sport. We can do something great with this team. Oh, definitely. It was a very hard sell. I mean. Certain parts of DC are a heavy football and basketball. So to get the kids some transition to baseball, it's been a struggle. It's been easier to have a couple of years. I'm guessing because of the ho- CTE studies. I'm seeing a few kids transition from football to baseball just because of the parents concern of the injuries, but just the popularity of it is not a very popular sport within the black community..

"Apparently there was a parallel event in the eighties for a few years, and this group wants to see a full twenty one day. Women's tour added not all the women's professional, cyclists seem to be supportive of that. But my question is, why isn't there a women's tour? I guess there's a one day stage or one day race, but there's no full blown two or one on. Well, there's a long history of large women's races being put on. And then after a few years, they are not financially soluble, they lose money and it they kept going by a sponsor or a brand or municipality, or local government. That's able to fund it right now. There's a women's elite is very successful that it's ten day race and the best women come out and ballot out was roads of Italy in its, you know, produces some great drama at great racing, but starting out, you know, six, seven years ago, there was a real movement to. Get ASO. The owners of the tour de France to start a women's tour to France. And you know there was a there was a film made about it. There was a lot of pressure put on them through social media and what they did was they produced a one day race, and it was a one day race circuits racing around the art Detriot in the Shumpert LIZA with the final day. And after a few years of doing that, they took it into the mountains. So it's this one day raised with a lot of climbing. And you know, you talk to the women who race it in the do like the course, and they say that it is a good thing for the sport, but it just doesn't live up to what a lot of them would like to see which is, you know, if not a three week women's Georgia France than at least a week long or attended toward a frauds. And you know, I, I see where they're coming from. ASO is one of the only businesses in all of cycling that generates enough revenue off the race to potentially fund something like this. You know a lot of the other races out there, they knew they could put on a women's race, but it. Would be. It might be hard going from financial perspective for a few years until they were able to get the sponsorship going, but that's really isn't the case with ASO. So you know, you've seen you've seen pressure over the years to try and get a women's toured France going. Fred dryer is the editor in chief of the magazine velo news. He covered the tour de France in France, Fred, thank you so much for coming on the show. Thanks guys. Here in Washington last week, the little league baseball championship was won by a team composed entirely of African American players in a city that's fifty percent black. You might have expected that to have happened before, but the win by the kids representing the Maimi. Peanut Johnson little league were the first to pull it off. They'll compete in the regional tournament in Bristol, Connecticut. Starting later this week, the winner of that goes to williamsport Pennsylvania to play in the Little League World series, Keith Barnes founded the Mamie Johnson little league just four years ago. He's with us now. Congratulations, Keith. Thank you. I can't overstate how impressive an accomplishment. This is a youth sports in DC are bifurcated geographically, economically and racially and that is especially obvious in competitive baseball. You've overcome a lot in a short time to get these kids in a place to succeed. How did this happen. Well, the kids, they just work hard. The community actually bought into baseball in what seven, and it's not just me. We've had plenty of help. I definitely have to thank the national youth baseball academy. They've been very great with, you know, with using the facilities and as you may know, eight of the twelve kids actually attend their program. We also wanna think like the home team, they sponsor the uniforms were every little league in DC, and that helps us keep the calls now so that you know we can have kids play. Yeah, the Washington nationals you mentioned. I mean, that's been a huge contributor to making sure your kids complained good fields for starter and get some got additional coaching and there's an after school program that combines academics with baseball. Right? So right. I asked the friend of mine what it costs for him. His eleven year old son to play baseball. And I should say here that you mentioned ward seven, that's Anticosti..

"He has this enormous audience people really like his podcast. And so you know, he has been successful in in sort of remaking himself as this one man cycling media branded kudos to him as for credit or not. His opinions in perspective on the sport are really what the sport need to do. I'm somewhat skeptical of that. I've heard him say many times that you know, he thinks that the sports spends way too much time worrying about thinking about things like anti doping and you know, for someone who was brought down by the anti-doping system, I guess it would really make sense for them to have that perspective. So Armstrong when he was the face of the tour and before his downfall was amazing for the sport, bringing in people who were not cycling fans. And giving cycling this. Image of being associated with over overcome and great obstacles and hardships and had this kind of charismatic leader is Thomas somebody who could change the sports image in any way, or you know, he's in his thirties as it kind of too late for him because obviously Chris room is not someone as you said even before the the doping stuff. He wasn't somebody who is like particularly charismatic or exciting to folks outside the sport or even inside the sport. Yeah. The problem with Chris room was that he was a, he is a bit on the type, a training focused living this monastic style cyclist. He's very polite. You know he, he'll answer your questions in a very polite manner. Sort of represents this kind premium proper cyclist, Gary Thomas. There are a lot of stories of him is kind of legendary partier that when the time is right in the mood strikes him, he will go out to the. We. Hours of the night drink a lot of beer, and you know, maybe even have to be dragged home by some of his buddies. If he loves a rugby and in a lot of his interviews, he'll talk about how he doesn't read cycling websites, and then he apologizes tall the cycling reporters and says, you know, he'd much rather read about rugby, but he get the, you get the feeling that he's a guy who likes to have fun in. I wrote a story about him interviewed some of his coaches in France, and they all kind of had these stories of, oh, you know that that one time when Garin state outweigh too late and was a little hung over at the raise or we had to punish him because he was having a little bit too much fun. So on that end he could bring a bit of a different attitude to a sport, you know that so associated with this type aim on acid lifestyle. But you know, in terms of whether he's gonna have the same power, Lance Armstrong, I don't think so. I mean, Lance Armstrong was the story, the personality, the team, the fact that he was American, the attitude, all these things. So her rolled into one there was so much about Lance to bring people out of the. Sport. I didn't know this deal. I read the story that there were thirteen, amateur, women, cyclists who rode every stage of the tour de France, the day before the men, and they had to do it alongside trucks and traffic. And it reminded me that there's no women's tour de France..

"They wanted to see Chris from proving beyond a doubt that this adverse analytical was it the case of him using a medical dose of salbutamol and not a potential performance enhancing does. So we're now in year one million of doping and cycling, it feels like, and it's made me a little bit less interested and covering the race and watching it not because I really care what the athletes are doing in particular, but just because it's kind of the same conversation over and over again. And so I'm curious how you feel about it as the editor of a cycling specific publication and why you're. Readers. Thank are. They just totally exhausted and only want to hear about the race or people like, oh, I really want to hear the nitty gritty about Kris firm because it is like interesting like the investigation and like the forensics behind it. But I'm just wondering if people are just like, I don't wanna hear the shed anymore. I think there is a bit of fatigue, and I think especially the barrigan viewers, they look at team sky and they see the dominance, and it just reminds them of Lance Armstrong US postal and they say the only way to dominate the sport with the way that Lance Armstrong and postal did, which was through mafia tactics and having the bus pullover on the side of the road, and people literally put bags of blood into their arm and take supercharged drugs that make them so much faster than you might otherwise ride normally. But here's the thing in two thousand eighteen. The sport's biggest anti-doping story is about asthma medication. It's about whether or not Chris room. Basically took too many puffs off of his inhaler while he was fighting a cold during the wealthiest Bagna it's not, you know, was Chris from hooked up to bags of blood and was team sky intimidating, former riders, you know, operating sort of quasi mafia organization like we saw with Lance back in the day, and you know you talk to riders who are in the sport. You talked to former members at team sky and you do get a picture that things on things actually. Are, you know, on the level? Yes. You still hear a lot of murmurs in a lot of accusations, but there's a general opinion that the level of doping sort of the game changing doping that was going on ten to fifteen years ago isn't going on any more. Well, it's also possible. We just don't know yet was the science was always a head of the testing what athletes might be doing to try to gain the system through performance enhancing drugs right now, speaking of which. It's too I wanna push up pushback on you guys to say though it when you look at the style of racing at the tour de France, ten years ago, fifteen years ago, there was so much aggression and so much attacking and so much action. I as a fan of the sport, I loved to watch it. You'd see these guys just going as hard as they could at the site amounts in going on these surges in these breakaways in the style of racing that you see now is a tradition. You see the front group riding along at a really hard pace in just sort of one by one guys fall off the back. You mentioned Lance Armstrong and every fight link conversation needs to come back to Lance Armstrong. Of course, he was blogging for outside magazine. He gave an interview to freakonomics in which he once again, tried to sort of recast the narrative around him. It was portrayed as a genuine may culpa and lances. Now, sort of, I think trying to sort of re imagine himself as. A voice of reason and and Justice in cycling that we need to go forward and we need to improve the sport and you have to have your own anti-doping regulations. He told freakonomics is Lance Armstrong's effort to rehabilitate his image one more time successful in any way. And is there a reason that we should be reading and listening to Lance Armstrong at this point. Those are two very separate questions. When Lance Armstrong started up his own sort of media empire with his podcast in this blog, I was a little bit skeptical, but you know, the proof is in the size of his audience in from what we've heard..

Chris Fru m- came in third after being allowed into the world's most famous cycling race just days before the wheels started spinning round and round as his participation had been in doubt due to charges. You take an excessive amount of asthma medication. We've all been there, but given the sports history, I am one hundred percent sure that everything here is on the level joining us now from Switzerland as Fred dryer. The editor in chief of the magazine velo news, hey there, Fred, hey, Josh, how's it going? It's going very well. I mean, I'm sure that this podium is going to remain intact if we look five years down the line. But before we get into all of the doping questions. Which I promise we'll get to. In the second question, I'd like you to tell us a little bit about grind. Thomas who had won two Olympic gold medals before this year's tour, but who I didn't know anything about what kind of guy is he? What kind of writer is he? So Gary, Thomas is a, he's a product of the gbi cycling program fifteen years ago. Great Britain invested started investing heavily in cycling to build up for the Olympics. And at the time he was a very talented junior writer, and he was pretty good as a ten year old is a fourteen year old. He was really good as a seventeen year old. I don't think he was cycling at that point. I, you know, my research in my reporting didn't go back that far though. He's a late bloomer is what you're saying relate Bloomberg recycling. No, he's a guy who showed a lot of promises a lot of talent as a kid and sort of made his way through this Olympic program won two Olympic champion. Ships, but really his big results from a track and with team sky. He was more of a worker bee as he was one of the sort of offensive lineman of Chris from for Chris rooms for a tour de France victories. And you know, he was one of the see this with a lot of the guys who were in the worker bee status every now. And again, they'll get an opportunity to be a team leader and the team sky. These guys usually blow it. They crash, they have a bad day or they have bad legs. And Gary was given this opportunity to seventeen at the tour of Italy, and he crashed and people were like, that's it. It's the curse of the sky worker bee. He's never gonna get there. But this year he started to show promise. In fact, he won this week long stage race called the criterion doodo Finney, which is all too often looked at sort of the big warm up race for the Twitter France. He who wins the dough finance often good going into the tour. A lot of people thought he had. The ability to someday win a tour to France or to challenge for the grand tour. But he was in the shadow of Chris room. So there was a question of whether he'd ever get the opportunity to and the way that that happened. And I guess this means we're going to push the drugs question to at least third. And the way that happened is really interesting to me Chris from in this race was the leader at the outset right? Or he was he was still on the. He was the leader of the team. Tell us what happened that led to to sky basically saying, we're going to let Thomas be the guy in front because very often what happens is if the team leader has a bad stage accommodations were made so that he can get back into the front and reclaim the yellow jersey that didn't happen here. There was a point in this race where team sky gave it to Thomas. Yeah. Well, there were three things the first of which will get to a little later, which was Chris room had this cloud, so beautiful hanging over him, whether he was actually going to be able to participate in Twitter, France..

It makes you want to air yelling at me to stop being political. People get shed about talking out. It's something I, I, I'm not scared to take a stance and talk out and stand up for other people's rights. I don't think you should stick to sports. I'm I'm curious what the conversation is around social Justice and athletes in Australia versus in the US. I think another reason I'm very Ashburton and you know, I really don't care what people think. And you know, sometimes always right, but I, the end of the day are not trying to keep anyone happy except myself and my family and my friends. And if I say something wrong or if I am wrong, I have people around me that will call me out on my actions. And I think that's important to have you know, people that will tell you don't just be surrounded by, yes, men all the time. But you know, I guess industry people have skid the media can turn on your media's turn on me many a times, and there is a lot of dependency in Australia filters from the media. You know, right down right now, we have a lotta propaganda outlet speaking about Sudanese gangs relevant, which is completely false. It's all lied. Onate up. And you know, it's, it's it's tiring to see people believe everything I read. I want to ask a final question about dunking. You're the first woman to Dunkin the Olympics, and then there was the the Dunkin, the all-star game. I always have kind of mixed feelings about it because it feels to me like whenever a woman gets celebrated for dunking or gets noticed for it, it's again, this comparison with the men's game. It's like, oh, she can do what men do. So that must mean that she's good. Do you have mixed feelings about about that about being kind of noticed for your ability to dunk, a basketball rather than all the other great things you can do on the court, or is it just a compliment all the other things you can do on the court, and you want to show people that, hey, I can get up there and then dunk as well. I guess growing up it was, I kind of I never practiced it. I was always skid. I don't know why I I never practiced and it's something I wish I did practice in. If you know if goes Samy doing it, I heard they stop practicing and dot working on earlier with a tennis ball, and then you're like a medium size like softball and then get a real boss ball because you know, if if I grew up in my teenagers practicing dunking, Agra probably drew Brees sixty windmills now. So you know the earlier you start something quick. You're gonna, you know, perfect it and make it your through. So I wanna see Mogos practicing. I wanna see him getting up there. Kambasch plays for the Dallas wings of the WNBA. You can also see her playing all around the world and for Australia and international competitions Leser was such a pleasure to have you on the show. Thanks so much for doing it. Thank you. Guys. Before we get to our conversation about the tour de France wanted.

"And you know, leaving overseas older one, if I would love it if I could make America my harm all year round. But you know, I have to go off the China for five months in the in the winter just goes up for eight months. And if we can put all our time into the WB eight, the quality of the game improves so much as well. He, but you know, we have you have. Did you have so many women sitting out of this league just because it doesn't pay well and they save themselves for Europe because that's why we make out money. But you know, I thought the time I do see it. And I think if I were boy, I see the boys I grew up with, you know, finally signing RV Hugh, you know, if a five million dollar deals and you know. No, it. It takes me two, five, six years. The next five million if I was playing back to back the bat, China or Europe. So yeah, it's really hard to think. If what if I was the boy, where would I be if I had the talent I have right now, and I was breaking records in the NBA I'd be making hundreds of millions. It's true. It's true. And you also yet an achilles injury. And then I'd imagine that you have to make a decision then because you ended up taking a lot of time off where like in for the long term in your career, you like that's a really terrible injury. You need to rest that. But if you want to like make a living, then you need to rush back and play. Yeah. And you know, I'm lucky I have the opportunity where I can take my time rehab here. I see a lot of plays getting crushed, and. To come back. But I had my mom and my agent and my is, you know, I think about my lo j. D. And not just not right now. I'm and I was coming back from that and you know, an achilles injury isn't an easy thing. You know, what was it four years ago? I did that. Well, let's not before years ago. I'm happy. I took a whole year to come back into take my time. So it's really lame that you got a technical foul for celebrating and the WNBA we got to do something about that. Like, what's the deal with that man. You know, I see men weilding out. Perry all game for the men's game, but you send you see my wild and out on each other and lexin after dunking scoring. And then there was one game here. Dallas where zealous from New York. She made a big play in a flex and got cold technical and being on the position I was shocked. I are. There was a lot of those like five seconds got game, but your team should have refused to shoot the technical free throw just out of solidarity. Is that the same game where he said, you gotta tech for looking at a ref. That was that was the week before, but I think you know, we played with passion. Women are emotional. Women are fish and we have the rights to, you know, the pump ourselves up. I agree. It seems uncontroversial does seem it seems like a petty use of officiating villainy. I wanna ask you a little bit about your your Twitter conversations with another Australian Andrew bogut. You know, Andrew bogut does not fall on the right side of many issues. I think we can all go on that. And you're willing to engage his his his, I don't know, is it even passive sort of Neanderthal beliefs. Why are you willing to sort of do that? I mean, it must be a big deal in Australia, these two Australian basketball superstars going after each other on social media? Yeah, you know, at the end of day, you know teammates the team is trailer. We represent our country and you know if I see someone saying something that I don't agree with, I don't. I don't care who it is. I'm gonna say something. And when you specially talking about my issue was about, you know, some political views and ustralia and police brutality against young original children in a strategy, and we have a, we have a lot of race issues in stralia..

"It sounds like. Yeah, you know, I'm an only child and my family, my mom, my grandmother, my everything, and my friends back harm on my family as well. And when you go leaving or you, oh, when I played a lot in China where I'm the early English speaking person on the team, you know, you still very isolated and Nerva Todd's, especially social media these days, looking at my phone and seeing my friends leaving their best life into stralia summa with. I'm only learning or China on in a in the snores or yeah, I it's hot, but it's part of the job, and I'm lucky here in Dallas. I've got coach, Aaron Phillips. I used to play with and. You know, she's like, you know, big sister to me and go Cayla Francis now as well, who has definitely been a line of months. I was sixteen years old. I've known Cayla Francis or it's really great being here, Dallas where I have about teammates and coaches and stuff around here to like family. I wonder if you know you hear a lot of the American women talk about the responsibility. They feel to help grow the league Candace. Parker said that. And you know, just that it's important for the WNBA to exist in Tanner twenty years to to exist for their kids and other people's kids. And I'm wondering if it feels a little different for you not being American or if you feel the same thing just because the WNBA is, you know, a very important and prominent institution and women's basketball. It's so important. You know, I grew up watching Michelle Timms and one Jackson and penny Taylor culet over here. And you know, I was when I go drafted, I was one of the biggest moments of my life. I couldn't believe I was finally gonna play in the WPA and or having being able to, you know what goes play here growing up in in the Olympics. If I didn't have that, I probably wouldn't keep playing spoil and make it my goal to be, you know, one of the best and be able to represent my country in the green and gold. So I think it's super important. I, I want to be able to see my daughter down and you know, it'd be like, you can do what mommy did like my kids wanna play boss ball. I would love that. But you know, at the end of the day, if I have a son and a daughter, how am I tell my baby goes your brother's probably gonna make hundred times more than you and it's not about, you know, making a the same amount as NBA players. It's about making enough. So we don't have to play basketball all year round. So we can stay in America and there's some buffing out game here and be able to have an off season where we can, you know, put more time into the community and they're speaking out and you're encouraging Mogos and envoys as well. It's a place for Got you. to give you credit for having a sense of humor about a lot of this, though. Liz and for being very good at Twitter. You tweeted recently today I learnt NDA refs make more than a WNBA player and the twelfth man on w. on an NBA team makes more than a whole WNBA team. Not sure if I want a sex change or a career change right now. It's quite frustrating going to bed most nights knowing that if I was born with a penis, I would be entitled to so much more in life. No, no, I'm not. I'm not saying it's not true. It draws a really clear contrast to the way that American media and fans value men's sports versus women's sports. Yeah, and it's hard. You know, I constantly hear all they want the same amount of money as the men. We went the same about, you know, we've done Dr. We just wanna make enough money, so we don't have to spend whole year round chasing Boston coats and stadiums..

"Free throw line, you made four threes after making just five all season before that. That sounds very fun to me. But I know you're a very introspective person. So I wanted to ask the question was that the most funny hat on a basketball court or their other games and moments that meant more than that or or more exhilarating, or was that that game just really special for you? Pretty big game. You know it was. It got a bit silly towards the end when I had forty points. Plus I didn't realize I had finishes like fifty three until the end of the game. And you know, I came up to co and everyone's like broke the record. You broke the record. I was like all of my God. I've actually does broken babe as record, you know, respond to. She had fifty here in fifty one. I think it was with the Tulsa shock if you use ago, sir. Yeah, you know pretty pretty third feeling, but I, there's been much talent in this league. I feel like it. It could be breaking tonight. It'll be tomorrow night. You know any given day someone else who break that record, sir. It's nice to have it for the moment. Liz, you were the number two pick in the WNBA draft in twenty eleven, but you've had what looks from the outside, like a love, hate relationship with the league you left after that season. You came back in two thousand thirteen and then you didn't play again until this year in the WNBA. After you're fifty three point game, you took advantage of the media platform to call out the league for the way it treats and markets players contrast and the WNBA with playing overseas where Tom layers can get six and seven figure salaries. You're not alone in those criticisms. Obviously, your teammates skyler Diggins has been pretty outspoken. What do you think the WNBA needs to do better. You know, it's definitely improves and getting better. You know, I was the thousand eleven. I really like, I didn't want to be here. I didn't want to be part of this league. Why? Why would I wanna be a part of, you know, I wasn't enjoying myself. I was in Tulsa battling a lot of depression, having a really bad time and waking up not wanting to be here. Don't want him to be a part of the team and not even wanting to play basketball. So I was like, why am I being ridiculed choosing to play. When the basically isn't treating me, right is looking off to me and they're not paying me and they're like, you take a look for me to succumb back this year. And I have a lot of friends and family back home who super proud and happy to see me smiling and play basketball because that's something that was really missing since two thousand eleven. So I saw an interview in which you said, I think we need to normalize, not being okay because everyone goes through their tough times and it seemed like it took you. It seems like it took you awhile to feel comfortable talking about it was that because of the stigma around mental health or because you're just a very private person or both. You know, I'm pretty. It's been about a lotta thing, but it just, you know, it's very used to tell my mom that I had depression, and I'm, I'm Medicated and I'm working on it. I'm trying to get better. And it took me to getting to one of the doctors places on my life and telling my balls like I don't k- you know, waking up not wanting to live and he's on a normal way to, especially when you're twenty five years old there, I went through some of the doctors. Today's, especially off the, you're leading up to Rio Olympics afterwards. I, I really lost my lie and most of my purpose and it, it took a while and it's saying I'm not a case for me to get better. And part of that, I imagine Liz is the difficulty of being a foreign f- we'd you played in China, you played elsewhere. You're living sort of peripatetic lifestyle. Your. Not coming to the WNBA for all those years could be interpreted as while she doesn't like the pay here and why should she come back? And a lot of obviously, WNBA players go over seas to make their money in the off season, but I imagine it was more complicated than that for you..
