So am i. My friends always be like you going to do communications but got talk for other things like well i do. I'll talk for a living. But it was just funny for that to kind of be where i went. But they did offer. I was accommodate your specializing in public relations and journalism and they did have broadcast classes. So al-sabra gate kind of background in it and get enough to get into syracuse. So you know kinda worked out in the end anyway so you said that was in high school that you kind of realized that you needed to figure something out so again. We're were so alike josh. Because i was the same way it was high school for me. That's very funny..

"News to her that i was leaving cheney attempting to get into villa nova. She said to me just because georgetown has all black basketball players on their team doesn't make georgetown a black school. That was her words to me. I asked to put that in a book so once i arrived on campus. I realized that. I made a mistake. My sister was wrong but it didn't matter as much as most folks with think because i was focused on football chain was a division two school villanova. Although it dropped his program reassert reemerged as d one aa versus be one so they were still the big boys right you know. Relatively and so they'd be playing team we would be playing teams like Townsend delaware lee high. You know Jam hugh connecticut teams like that so it wasn't like being division too so still was a dream of mine to play d. One football silence focused on that focused on making a football team. Yes i still had to make the adjustment because well let me start my junior high school. They call no school now. My junior high senior high and cheney were all pretty much the same meaning all that ninety nine point nine percent right. so yes cheney. Cheney might have had a few of our white brothers and sisters attending class there. But i did notice because i wasn't there long enough to notice believer one semester. That's really not enough to get really really comfortable. So but a good example would be. I grew up with football coaches all black man junior high senior high chain all black man. I could develop nova first day. We meet the coaches. There's one african american coach. So what are the chances. He would be my position coach. Chances weren't that good so of course. When i meet my position coach he turns out to be a white. And i had to get used to that. I had to adjust to that right and it took me some adjusting and i was able to do that with my teammates. Might immediate team mates will be a defensive back so my immediate teammates that would see more than my other teammates would be other cornerbacks. Strong safeties m free safeties defense amax so our group all had the same thought process of our coach. He was loud he screamed and yelled right. He was very animated. He you know he was in your face. He was no different than any other coach i had had the only difference was i didn't have the experience being coached by coach snow. That's why i had to make the adjustment. And once i was able to do that and mike teammates helped me do that. Then i was able to move along a evolve grow and really focused on improving as a student athlete. Now let's talk about a little bit of that struggle. Because i think getting it out in the open is helpful. Now i i grew up personally in north philadelphia but went to a pretty urban elementary school And later in philly we have magnet high schools. I went to a magnet high school. But that didn't really change anything because it was a magnet high school within the city of philadelphia in the public school system so again very diverse population of students for the most part despite being a magnet school and so i never really had that experience growing up. Everybody was different from each other and that was it. Didn't really matter you know. So what was some of that. Culture shock that you experienced. What were the issues in your own. Mind that you needed to overcome. And then what were the steps that some of those students colleagues teammates helped you helped you. What are the steps that those colleagues helped you with to get you sort of passed that initial hurdle. Well a good example would be again. My coach and what happened was Nate book night was my teammate. And nate was from norristown. Pennsylvania and nate also transferred in brahm liberty and so he had experience growing up playing a team sport in a diverse environment. So he was able to look at me and say hey listen. He's our coach. Opposition coach is no different than any other coaches and then my other teammates my white brothers right would say. Hey that dude's crazy and but they also would say is he's players coach so they recognized that he was different than what they were used to but they also confirmed that he's a player's coach. He has best interests at heart so by them. Reinforcing that in our conversations gave me the who say okay. Nate saying it and john is saying it. Jay saying it. Bobby is saying right. And so if we're all they're all collectively saying that then i need to get on the board right. I need to get on board. Get on get on the train along with my teammates because as players if you have a good coach and a coach. Let's be honest. Approach is the same as a teacher right. No matter what level. So if you're you've had great coaches in your life and those coaches are teaching you the foundational sports meaning discipline teamwork Listen right Do everything together support each other. Protect each other. You know all those things nine even say part of the golden rule right In in some shapes so once everyone else was on board. I didn't want to be left behind. I wanted to join join the crew. And i felt comfortable joining the crow because we were spending more time. I mean in week. I have spent more time with my white immediate defense bac teammates than i had spent with someone who didn't look like me and my entire life so i was and i.

"This is a big deal. This is an institution that everyone can talk about has never done. Xyz and they're doing XYZ now they're not GonNa do it to the satisfaction of everyone. We've talked about that. But they're moving off that concrete laden point that they've been at for so long which is no which is. Just no no. You're amateur your student athlete. You can't do any of this and now they're doing it but they're doing it with the word that I want to get your opinion on whether it's the right word and how they're phrasing. It is guardrails. So they're trying to put these guardrails in and I'll just mention a couple of those guardrails. Get your thoughts one. They want to get away from anything that can be interpreted as pay her place. So any kind of inducement or endorsement or money is going to be as you said for name image likeness but not for your play not for being an athlete and two they WanNa make sure that there's no logo. There's no pick your school being mentioned and as I understand it. The athlete can say I'm John Doe from State University but can be represented in terms of apparel logos. And then the third thing when you're Comin' on his this seems to be a structure where compliance departments who are already overworked will have to figure this out and what they're doing in addition allowing this for student athletes. They're really creating a lot more work in my mind for compliance departments. Whether it's just getting the call from the local furniture store that wants someone to come over or monitoring that those guardrails are in place so those are just some initial thoughts. Like your your reactions. Yeah and those are all great points and I think you hit on the the really key ones let me try to take them in order and then if you WanNa talk about each one specific but in terms of the Avoiding this becoming pay for play I think with all of the recommendations everything reports. There are at least two lenders to look through one. Is The business perspective. How do we make college sports as popular as possible? Just ignoring what the law might say. If we only had business people sports people in the room one set of rules would they come up and part of the answer and I know watch people disagree with this part of the answer that the answer that has come up with a long time is that the business model is better if the college athletes are not paid too? Many people can say well. They're doing that because it's exploiting them and they're doing it it keeps their costs down and the NFL would love to do that too but they can't because it would be illegal but putting all that aside there is the business part of that they believe the right model is to not pay the athletes beyond their cost of attendance. Then there's illegal and legal side of it is that they have for years argued that what makes them distinct and what makes them Not Totally Immune but what allows them to survive? I trust attack is that they are different than pro sports because their athletes are amateurs and they are essentially redefining or or evolving. The definition of amateurism. Here by saying we know used to say you can't be paid based on your athletic ability. We're changing that. Now you can be paid based on your athletic ability. But in order to maintain a clear line between pro and college sports you cannot be paid to play and we will put all these guardrails parameters whatever you WANNA call them in place to make sure. These payments are not just pay for play in disguise and the classic example of that would be the local car dealer. Really wants to get the star quarterback to go to Whatever school and they say I'm GonNa give you half a million dollars to make one appearance at my dealer and we all know that's not because they want them to the dealership to try to build a business instead. They want them to come play football at that school so they want to avoid those. That's why those parameters has guardrails in place they can both because they think it would hurt their business if this became pay for play and also this would hurt their legal argon and might end the difference. The courts have given them an antitrust cool in terms of the the no marks the this is challenging. Because as as you know. Part of the value of an athlete is their association with their team whether that the pro team or a college team or the Olympic Team. So this is not a a unique thing. Where if you're an athlete you can't use the mark and logo in an ad. What's unique is at the pro level. You can obviously enter into a deal with your team or in a group licensing deal. So you awesome look and then share the revenue. The says you cannot do that even if you get permission from Alabama the Alabama quarterback cannot appear an ad with the logo were wearing the Jersey and the argument against that is that's going to significantly decrease the value of these deals. You get from most of the athletes not gonNA movie. They all have some identifier on there and they may depending on the circumstance to be able to say. I'm the quarterback Alabama but it's obviously very different than appearing in the uniform But the NCAA believes in many athletic directors. I've talked to believe that this is a necessary guardrail necessarily restriction because if you will allow the school to be involved either in setting up the deal or allowing the students to use the mark. It's just going to become part of the recruiting package and it's going to further separate the haves and the have nots and it's GonNa essentially end up being paid for if you've come to Alabama to play for the football team. We'll guarantee you a deal that allows you to use the Alabama logo and Pasia X. amount of money on so. They're I think they're very much more about recruiting and again this being a house us a taste of play and then the last thing. I'll hit on quickly in terms of the compliance costs. I think you might be right I would say that compliance costs are pretty high right now and they're they're law. All this stuff is difficult to monitor because the rules are so complicated and if you just open ended up a little bit I might actually be easier to monitor but I would also say one thing that's missing from the report that's the Knight Commission has pushed and I've done some work with them on that and some other groups push is to have the creation of either an independent or third party that would handle the compliance that everything would have to run through essentially a clearinghouse. It wouldn't mean the compliance office had no work to do on this but this could all be vetted ahead of time so we know who the third party is approved. We know what the parameters are for. The deal could be a standard contract like they have in lots of other areas. I think that could could make this could make this much more efficient and reduce a lot of those costs. Well said and I WANNA pick up again on the endorsement part of it and the athlete sort of saying. I'm Joe Blow from State University. But without the marks I think a lot of people know watching pro athletes on their local commercials where you'll see Philadelphia wearing a green shirt with no marks. And he'll say you know I'm I'm Carson Wentz football player and people have gotten used to that and you think okay. They haven't done the deal with the NFL. There's no replacing deal so this is where we are with college sports right now. They're allowing college athletes to move into that territory where you've seen pro athlete saying. I'm a pro football player. I'm basketball player in baseball player. And they don't have the marks so we're getting there but that sort of segues to the question. I've gotten a lot today. I'm sure you have to what about the EA. What about the video games and Val Ackerman has said who is one of the leaders of this task force about this the chairman of the Big East? She's been on the podcast that in so many words. That's not happening. Because that would require group licensing agreement that would require unionization that would require employees status. And as I see it that would require the pay per play model. So are you reading it as all those people hoping for an? Ea Game Out of this. That's not happening. Yeah I that is what I'm reading this as well and it's also the number one question they have gotten this. Does this mean I'm getting my video game back? And at least for now the answer is no for all the reasons you mentioned and I know that's disappointing for a lot of people. I would say that the potential silver lining in all of this is there to several linings. Want is this is not necessarily going to be a six day. I think we will continue to see the model and this is going to be a lot of trial and error and they may end up reducing some of the Options they may end up expanding and and I and I think what a lot of people have looked at with no marks and logos and no group licensing is. This is a lost revenue opportunity for the schools and at a time where they're searching for new revenue particularly as we get closer to talking about potentially shorten fall seasons or cancelled seasons or or reduced ticket sales or whatever it might be. Shouldn't they be looking for more creative ways to get revenue not looking for ways to give up revenue and this would really be leaving some revenue on the table So I I think there's still room for change and at the very end of the report on page thirty one and then I realized not many people make. It's a page thirty one of the report. They specifically say that the divisions should continue to explore whether there is a way to do group license And so the door is still open for the video games but certainly it's it's a it's just cracked open right now and that will be the first thing to come back if it comes back at all I I understand the argument. Part of it is as you mentioned. They're worried because there is no union and they marry much want that to remain the same they don't want the college athletes three recognizes employees for lotteries including they don't want them to be able to unionize But also there's the issue of if it's done at the institutional level then again you're talking about potentially recruiting advantage. And that if you go to Alabama you know that you will get a much larger chunk of group licensing revenue because people have get more value to the Alabama brand than to these slippy. Rockland Brent. So I think there's a the WHO's going to represent the athletes part of it and then also is it's GonNa turn into pay for play Just last year things. I mentioned quickly on this one is that I. I don't think that Well I'll mention this. One Point. The work to me still would be open to group licensing but at the division That if all of the schools and all of the F. B. S. conferences. Let's Say Pool. Their rights for a video game for trading cards and then all of that revenue is shared equally among all the schools. They don't have a recruiting knowing that particular school that everybody's getting an equal share and that's not fair competition. I get it that people would say. That's that's ridiculous. Just let them compete. But that's not happening according to play but it would seem like a compromise might be what's share the revenue across the board but then the question still is well how much the players get in the pro. Leagues have a union that negotiates that there is no union. Here I think there can be the creation of a group another union that negotiates on behalf of the college and that's again something that the instability wants to get away from because they don't want it to be seen as this entity that they have to negotiate with but but that is a positive solution down the road but it is. I know disappointing for. Who's still playing two thousand seven college football video? Well as you said there's still hope is this is. This is a moving fluid document or task force or as we move towards twenty twenty one in the one thing I just wanted to pick up again on the athlete versus the school. And we talked about this in our last podcast. A lot with Andy Schwartz joining us in terms of value and I almost felt like there should be like a blue ribbon economic panel to decide or determine or suggest what's the value of athlete without the school. What's valuable athlete with the school? And just to letting our listeners eavesdrop. What I could eavesdrop into some of this conversation at least from the Big East? Where my school Villanova's part of you take a player like this guy at Georgetown basketball? A Matt McLaughlin. Okay so he comes in as the star with all these crazy dunks in highschool got thousands. I don't even know hundreds of thousands of followers on social media..

"Chance to succeed as anybody who's ever had side note my next door neighbor. Favor and Rainman Wisconsin Winston Moss. He's go- character he is he's a he's an absolute There's players love him. He's putting good group together out in La. And when I interviewed you'd like this when I sat down to interview him We met in Milwaukee and it was maybe about you know sixteen degrees. He looked at me. And he's Mr Luck I would really really appreciate you get me out of Green Bay so I can go somewhere warm her because he was up there for God. What twelve thirteen fourteen years with Go Yeah Yeah. The McCarthy era like thirteen years in our final moments here just want to the sort of the now bring in you and I both lawyers here so single entity format like we had back in the World League and and what about player contracts they committed for a number of years and do they get out with. NFL interest so we signed signed ninety nine point nine percent of our players to one year contracts. Those contracts will expire at the end of our season right at the end of our league year following the championship game if if a player has an opportunity to take advantage of an NFL roster spot to be one of the ninety going to camp that that's fine they can they can do that We Think that it made sense to allow those players and take advantage of NFL opportunities because that I think raises the level of the quality of the of the type of player. WHO's interested in our league? You know what I'm saying so we did that It is a single entity system vince. owns the entire league. All all one hundred percent of it. I effectively as the commissioner responsible for you know the football ball component and the head coaches so in a sense I have to act like a local owner when it comes to football decisions right so for coach goes you one nine and and You Know Oh in ten you know that we probably know what that means right now But you know at the end of the day committee. Its own owned and operated by Vincent and the ability to make quick decisions. I with a startup. You've gotta be able to make quick hopefully good decisions you know. It made so much easier when when there's really just one one source of truth and that is Vince As opposed to having you know eight different owners when then you've got competition committees and television committees and all that sort of work at it. It makes things very streamline would show much like. NFL Europe was a real blessing right and when he talked about players. You mentioned some names James there. Would you guys go for the quote unquote name. Maybe if it's not the right fit and of course these are these. Are The questions you get. I'm sure you've answered through a Thousand Times about names like Colin Kaepernick or Johnny Manziel. AL or any big name. That's kind of out of football. Well I'll tell you the I'll give you a short story in this may be indicative of where we'd rather start to spend our time and we have a player plan for the Saint Louis battle walks named Kenny Robinson. He played defensive back in West Virginia. His freshman year was a starter played his sophomore year. All big twelve safe and His third year would have been the season that just finished right He was not able to play his third season because of academics was declared ineligible by the NC she aa so he's eligible for the twenty twenty NFL draft in April but he signed with us and it's affecting using the the XFL season as his combine. A number of the scouting services had him rated very high. You know potential first second round pick but he realized that he needed to continue the play and needed to get a little bit more tapes. You know to improve the skill set needed to play that third year. And so I think that's fascinating so the case of a young man. who was betting on himself right that playing a full season of ten games or maybe eleven or twelve they make it to the to the playoffs And is getting tape meals got all the scouts of of every. NFL team can look at them and CETERA. Much judge Moore indicative of how He plays football than just going through the combine right. So that's something that we're watching very closely. We'll monitor returned. Who knows that could become a little bit of a model for folks who you know may have only played one year of college ball or may have gotten hurt and only played a year and a half and who just need need some additional game tape To improve what kind of player they are so you have no limits on or restrictions on coming out of college after one year two years etc.. That's that's correct. So is you know Andrew The you know the NFL's eligibility requirement three years out of high school that's baked in the collective bargaining bargaining Brett Raymond. We're not. We're not a party to that now. Who knows the? NFL May change that. I mean they're going through their. CPA Negotiations I guess right now right so they could change that I haven't heard much discussion about that point. Probably not a real hot button topic but theoretically you know we could. We could if if a kid who's a freshman uh-huh who for whatever reason was disgruntled with his coach or got kicked out of school or whatever That's that's a A. You know a player that we could certainly take a look at and we think he's one of the best. You know four hundred twenty players in the in the country not signed do an NFL or C. L. contract. And Gosh we we'd probably sign them. It's been great. I know I gotTa let you go time wise. I gotTa Ask House Andrew. Doing in retirement has he liked it. He loves it. I yes thank you for asking. He's doing fine he He and his wife had their first baby about I. Guess two and a half three months ago He's healthy. You know enjoying thing it. No no no regret still follows the game you know. In fact he's been a little bit of sounding board for me. If I've got a question about this or that with with our league think I'll I'll give him a call and let him weigh in. I mean those as you suspect a bunch of the guys in our league because most of our virtually all of our players have had some experience with with the NFL particularly quarterbacks he knows Landry Well Landry Jones and Josh Johnson who spend a little bit of time on the colts. In fact one of the you know we signed a number of guys who had considerable time on on NFL practice squads one of those guys named Phillip Walker Played At temple you might remember him. Yeah and was was about two maybe three year You know the Peace Quad quarterback for the Colts Andrew said. Hey Dad if you can you know. Get Philip to WHO To commit. He's a hell of a player. Could he moves around. He's smart kid. Good leadership in fact. I asked Andrew to give him a couple of phone calls to encourage him to consider hitter are offered. He's now fighting for the starting spot with Connor Cook Down with June Jones. So he's a little bit and it's been a little bit of a of an unofficial adviser to me. It sounds like he's the one you're scouting directors as well. You know the guys guys that are close to the game they they never they never really leave the game with all those sticks with you. You know so. I'm sure in some form or fashion no matter what he does even though he's got an architecture degree and and all of that I think he may still somehow stay close to the game as he should do. So you're saying if you have a couple of quarterbacks go down in a certain team. Commissioners Commissioner's aren't gonNA call His informal scouting director to come back and play. I don't think I would do that. Well I could do that. I think I know what the answer would be And good for him as I talked about in my columns earlier this year my podcast. I just think he'll he'll find and probably already has found quarter fuller lives for himself that knowing enders I do well. You know it's I I've always you have talked about this a little bit. I've always admired the guys like leuke. Weekly who decide on their own terms when they want to go out. You know a lot of us like myself as players. We were told when her career is over time S.. Yes yeah but you know. I think there's a generation of guys who are you know. I think more aware of the health risks. And let's be honest. You know I was just down in Super Bowl. Will you know and you see a lot of you. Know former players as they get into their fifties and sixties You know it takes a toll right so I think there are guys now who you know because the money so big as well. They're able to step back and retire and and they can do that on their own terms and I think that's a very healthy thing right. You're not being told your career's careers over. You decide you know on your own and I think that's not a bad way to go out right. You always what's that old show Biz. He always leave them. You know wanting a little bit more. And that's that's true of sport is well. I always is a kid. I grew up in Cleveland and Jim Brown was our hero right every every little kid. One of the world's number thirty two and be Jim Brown and you know I remember my parents. Oh my gosh. Jim Brown retired. You know he was such a great player the peak of his career and of course he went into the acting business but You know Jim Brown the left fans wanting a little bit more and that's not a bad way to go out. Yeah I just came back from Super Bowl too and I just remember seeing him the other night and just this crowd gathered around as he sat in his chair almost like yeah. They were seeing a hope diamond the way they've uncrowded Iraq. Well I keep whenever I think about leaving the game guys leave the game early. I think about Earl Campbell. who was ars well? and Gosh Earl played hard and didn't play that long of a career in part because of the healthcare that was available back then but He's in top physical shape you know. And he's not enjoying. I think you know those those golden years that Everybody should should enjoy join. I'm I mean you know the fifties and sixties and seventies yes. It's football such a small slice alive. I try to tell guys. I'm sure as you do to do not even look at it as a career but look it as a head start to a career in your shiny example that well I would tell. My student student athletes all the time at West Virginia. And I would say this to you know any any college football player. I I suppose other sports. I'd say you know view yourself as a good student who really happens to play football As opposed to the opposite football player who happens to be a student right and and even when you get into the NFL yourself a good businessman who happens to be able to make you know a bunch of money playing a sport you love as opposed to the opposite because that that'll keep it in perspective and you know we'll give you a sense of of when the right time you know to step down and and start the rest of your life. I mean imagine Andrew Thirty Years Old You know he he he. He's a flip. Phone is the kind of kid who doesn't spend a whole lot of money. He's got a healthy bank account. And you know you can start on a career and and you know you can spend probably thirty five to forty years. You know doing something fundamentally different than you know gives you the same so the pleasure and satisfaction is playing when you know blaming the. NFL did that's pretty special. Not many people that opportunity it is indeed. Albert has been great as always just you and I when we talk. It's like we're just picking up from the last time. We talked Bridge on the PODCASTS.

You get so many anymore. Plays in things like the twenty five second clock. You want action and we're GONNA see if it works or not again the AF. I had those people on a year ago.

"Someone should run. Just because Republicans ought to be given the choice. But I think you're probably right based on the premise you had. He has a strong loyal base that it'd be hard to beat it. It's hard to beaten sitting president. It sounds so low energy doesn't it? I mean, and and I'm like jab really needed that exclamation point. That's low energy. And and I hope the next question. I didn't see that interview. I think I was in the air at the time. But the next question. I'm sure was well are you gonna run against the president chip someone should run not me, but somebody else should run? Yeah. Kerchief convictions there. But personally, I like chip just sounds so tired, but this is not tired at all. This is absolutely fascinating to me rose Puglisi joins us. She's on the Mesa county board of commissioners and quite an accomplished pass graduated with honors from one of my favorite schools Villanova bachelor degree in sociology and a minor in Japanese. Of course, who does not have a minor in Japanese attended Saint John's school of law. A couple of good basketball schools undergrad and law school credit to you and admitted to practice long, Colorado, New York, New jersey and to Florida he rose creek too heavy on the Dame capless show. Thank you so much, Dan. I really appreciate now. And you know, we visited Villanova daughters in that phase now of looking at colleges, and it just fell in love with that campus. And and they're just the feel on campus. The by the whole thing, you know, the whole service orientation. It really impressive. Great school highly recommend it. And if there's anything I can do to help let me know. And there's no snow, right? The winters usually doesn't get below sixty five and you don't have Tony coat. I wouldn't go that far. Just testing you. This is an honest woman. We know that for sure but rose tell everybody what you're up to on the so called national popular vote. Well, asthma national popular vote was going through the legislature both mayor Wilson of monument, and I had gotten an just an overwhelming number of phone calls and people stopping us on the street to tell us that we need to fight against it and help them to stop the our votes going to California and New York. And so we as soon as the Bill was passed through the legislature and had it should the governor's desk. We filed a petition to put this to the vote of the people because this isn't the legislatures votes. It's not the governor's vote. Just the people Colorado's Amen to that. Now, how is this going to work in real life? I'm sure there are a lot of people listening who want to help. How can they do that? And what are your chances? Chances are great. If I can tell you the amount of phone calls emails texts. We have gotten saying we wanna help we wanna. Sign petitions we want circulate petitions, this is very grassroots. So the first thing I would recommend is that people go on our website, Colorado vote dot org. And then let us know if you want to carry petitions if you wanna sign petitions, or if you want to donate, it'll cost fifteen thousand dollars for us just to print petitions, and we're basically statewide we do not need a certain amount in any senatorial district because it's not constitutional statutory. So any registered voter can circulate in any registered voter can sign the petition wonderful sounds to me is if this is highly organized, you got your website. It sounds like you've got your plan you need some money more than anything you need boots on the ground. So you need lots and lots of people what kind of opposition do you expect to face here? Interesting. You know that people who the legislators that had proposed this and removing it through talking about all the disenfranchised people who feel like their votes don't count. Well, if Colorado's votes. Get given to California and New York to make those decisions then Colorado's votes don't count. And I think that's really just cannot happen in Colorado. The inner Colorado's votes, they should stay and remain in Colorado. And I think people this is not a partisan issue. I think the people who are reaching out are of all different political sectors. They really want to get involved in this effort. So I think to those people who were proposing it I would like to remind them that the United States is set up as a Republic, not as a democracy. Well, yeah. And you've got the winning argument rose Puglisi with us. She's a Mesa county Commissioner you've got the winning argument. I'm convinced. There's no doubt about that. The reason I'm curious about who your up position is going to be is the way I view this as Jared polis giving away our presidential votes is a form of human sacrifice by police to the forces that be on the left the big money people. It's cetera who he's going to need in the future. Because. Because there would be no other reason for him to do this, right? Because it's it's not going to be popular with most people in the middle in Colorado. And certainly not on the right, correct? I would assume so I don't know what his motivation is personally. But I know that the grass roots is very motivated. Well, yeah, I think a lot of people in the middle are going to be as well. Because this just doesn't make any sense. I mean, if you went out and took a poll of people, we're gonna have flood surreally with us at five. Oh, six we'll ask him about this as well. But if you took a poll of people, hey, do you wanna give up the power you have? It's gonna be a hard sell. And so I'm trusting that awful lot of folks in the middle will agree with you and agree with us on this. That's why I'm just so curious as to where the opposition is going to come from. You know, we know this idea comes from the hard left, and how much money are they going to be willing to pour into it in Colorado. It's cetera as long as you and your group are well organized rose, and we'll give you all the help. We can on the show. I think you're gonna win because I think I think this is going to be a sixty forty sixty five thirty five issue in Colorado now. Absolutely. And if I tell you just like I was saying overwhelming support. But this is coming across all people, you know, people's votes are the essence of who they are. And it's very important to them to keep those votes in. It's just a lot of people are still not you're kidding me. Right. They didn't really do that. And so. As we look forward. Now. Walk us through the calendar. This will actually be on the ballot in twenty at the same time, for example that Corey Gardner's on the ballot right? We know that. And I think everybody listening knows by now that this will not be in effect for twenty because they have to get states, totaling two seventy before this giveaway of everybody's presidential vote in Colorado, actually goes into a fact, so how do you see this issue affecting the broader twenty twenty campaign? Well, obviously, it's going to get a lot of people out to vote and especially unaffiliated. I will say I've been overwhelmed with the amount of unaffiliated who have reached out that want to engage on this issue. So I think that that's good. I think that people are I mean, it's such a great issue for people to get engaged on. So I think that that might be helpful in twenty twenty obviously it's important that we get it on the ballot. I and we need to hundred thousand votes to do that by August first. So we will. All the boots on the ground that we can get and obviously money to help us move that forward. And then part two is the education campaign, making sure people understand what it means to give our votes away and make sure that they're against that don't case. So two hundred thousand signatures by August. I, and we all know how tough it is. To get signatures. Now signatures get weeded out at cetera. So again, the website where people can go to enlist Colorado vote dot org. Wonderful. Well, rose appreciate what you're doing. And please to use this show to fight the good fight and we'll look forward to an ongoing conversation. Well, thank you so much, Dan and good luck to your daughter as well. Appreciate that. Thank you. You take care. Bye. Bye. Right rose Puglisi nice to have her on the show. I'm sure we will often because this is a fight worth fighting. And I love what this does for the twenty election because it not only is going to get a lot of people motivated and base needs to be motivated. But you know, it's a game of addition. Right. And so folks in the middle biggest thing, it does is it opens is it opens is to who these Democrats really are because in most places in Colorado. Obviously, I'm not talking boulder and Denver most places in Colorado. Most Democrats win by pretending to be moderate when they're really either left leaning or lefty, there's no place to hide and this one giving away our presidential vote to the people of California. There's no place to hide on that one. So I love what rose in everybody else's is doing with that. Because that will open is to who these Democrats really are because we have to remember, right? I mean, so many folks vote for a particular party as a matter of. Habit over the years. And as we grew up democrat, and then it is sometimes really take something big to open is to. Wow, this isn't the Democratic Party that I heard about growing up. This isn't the Democratic Party, my mom and dad were a part of the they have the brand. A whole new company purchases in airliner something. They may still have the name, and they may have an animal on the tail, but it's a whole different animal. We just saw was gonna pass this along you Dan, O'Rourke in an interview setting was asked how he felt about third trimester. Abortions said he trusts the woman to make that decision. I don't know that even a majority of Democrats are on board with that pulled the left all these issues, we're dealing with here in Colorado. And this one is the one that irks me the most because this is fundamental to the core of our Republic. Our electoral votes are at stake. National popular vote is not the way that the founders intended the president to be elected from day one. Right. And even if people don't so much care about those arguments, and I think a lot of people will. But even if they don't the idea of wait a second, Jared, you want me to give up my presidential vote. So somebody in California can decide this it just doesn't compute. But the biggest thing is and. This group sounds from what we've heard so far very well put together. So I would bet their messaging will be very focused laser like is. How does this help Colorado? This gives away Colorado's influence, we will be flyover state in presidential campaigns. How does this help Colorado and their answer will be what helps Colorado by getting a democrat elected president instead of a Republican? Well, even if Colorado prefers a Republican. I mean, it's it's just a form of of madness. I mean, I don't mean clinical madness. It's a form of political madness. Which leads to my next point. I got to thinking about this over the weekend. And that is is there a.

"You see two times in the regular season, and you pray that it eventually happens in March madness, and it happens in March madness, that'd be great. If you get to see this upcoming year and to be fully transparent. I haven't seen much of you and see this year. Obviously everyone's seen Duke usually I'll see a little bit more UNC than where I usually am at this time of the year. But for Duke, it's the team to beat in college basketball, and we all know what their trifecta freshman. And with reddish was Williamson and with Barrett. They're going to be very tough to be in this NC double A tournament. That's you don't need a PHD in basketball to give you that type of analysis. They're clearly the best team in the country. But just because you are the best team in the country. Does that mean you're going to win it all we've seen a lot of great Kentucky teams over the years where you think, oh, no one could beat Kentucky and Kentucky finds a way to lose and Kentucky's usually one of those teams I bring them up is because we're Cal. They always have that one and done NBA type of talent. And now you have three guys that will be going to the association. In terms of their three freshman coming up this year, but the ticket prices for this one are absolutely absurd. To give an arm and a leg to get in the building tomorrow night. If you don't have to take it if you don't have some type of connection with Duke UNC people. But if you're trying to get in the building yet ready to give up your paycheck, and then some. Because it's going to cost a fortune. Carver high. Mafia worst seat in the house tomorrow, any deaths off the top of your head one ticket what it would cost UNC Duke tomorrow. One ticket worth seat in the house five hundred. Mafia, and he gets to fifty two thousand five hundred were seat in the house that's Super Bowl category. Play every year twice a year. Why the cost that much because there's design Williamson factor plays in this article that I'm reading right now on ESPN, they compare it to the impact LeBron James has with the Lakers right after he signed in the summer in terms of the value of the tickets. The cheapest ticket available for this past Super Bowl. I would have been with you guys. I would have guessed anywhere like that to fifty six hundred dollar range because they play every year. But the cheapest ticket available for the Super Bowl this year on the second market was two thousand six hundred seventy four dollars. At the Super Bowl, you expect it, but you NC Duke being on par with the Super Bowl two thousand five hundred it could be a great game. That's a lot of money. A lot of money. Now one bozo. According to vivid seats paid over ten grand for a ticket this week. One ticket to this week's UNC Duke game sold for ten thousand six hundred and fifty two big ones. Oh, wow. That's unbelievable. That's ridiculous. And I get it. I would love to see sign Williamson and person would love to. But I would much rather sit on my couch. Ever think about spending two thousand and five hundred dollars to get in the building tomorrow night. Wow. It also says in this article that last year's national title game Villanova Michigan seats are as low as sixty seven dollars. Now bigger stadium in one of those football type of stadiums. I get it. But sixty seven dollars for a national championship game regular season UNC Duke going as as low as two thousand five hundred dollars tomorrow night. Cameron endorsed stadium where they see over a little over nine thousand three hundred people. So not a great demand of a great demand. And. You don't have that many seats. So take it to be out of most people's price range. I went to college basketball game this weekend at MSG to Saint John's and Villanova. Now, I got my tickets for free. I'm not paying for regular season college basketball, unless if I have a dog in the fight. I great seats was sit in fifteen rows right off the Saint John's bench fun time. Great atmosphere. But if you had to pay the pay eighty bucks, just watch it from my couch. Dell bull popcorn get some chicken fingers. Little pigs in the blanket, get a little buffalo chicken debt. Get all the fat, man foods that you need. I would never think. Now, I'm saying what it's been eighty bucks for a regular season college basketball game. And I like college basketball. Have you give me a Duke UNC game for spend a buck fifty two hundred. Maybe I spend a buck fifty two hundred UNC. Hey, that's Duke UNC Saint John's villanovan, no disrespect you to those schools Villanova. Powerhouse and Saint John's then I shout this year with Chris Mullin, but I would not have spent fifty eighty bucks. I like my ticket actually the face value and pay it but the face value for this weekend where the seat I was was sixty eight dollars. I wouldn't have paid sixty dollars to get into the building. And I really wanted to go to the game. But I would not have done that. But you tell me a buck fifty two hundred Duke UNC make little trip Cameron door. Never been. Yeah. I would do that. But two thousand five hundred. That's absurd. It's absolutely ridiculous. That someone would pay that. For for one basketball game. Now never surprises me. I guess anymore. Because you always have someone that's going to meet the price, and is websites with all the fees and everything. Fever for breathing charge a fee for breathing on some of these websites. It's ridiculous. I'm trying to see you gotta carrier dome. Duke in Syracuse this year as low as forty bucks. That's not terrible. But Miami at Duke lowest prices see right now. Thirteen hundred dollars. That's for Miami. At Duke Miami's not good this year. Wake Forest at Duke, March fifth as what was six sixty five. Now,.
