Plaid plans European hiring spree despite Visa deal falling apart
"Clad and visa have ended plans for their monster merger almost a year after it was announced visa has cooled off. Its deal to buy fintech plaid for five point. Three billion dollars off to the us department of justice sued to block the transaction on antitrust grounds. We're confident we would have prevailed in cooled as plaid's capabilities. A complimentary to these is not competitive. Said al kelly chief executive when the deal was announced in january. Twenty twenty mr. Kelly said it would put the combined company at the epicenter of the fintech world but the doj moved to block the deal in early november arguing. That visa had chosen to a quiet plod because it was developing payments platform that would challenge visa dominance in the sector. Zach perry plaid. Ceo says it has only just begun will also stating it grew. Customers by sixty percent added hundreds of banks to the platform recently So ouattara thoughts on this. I suppose i double on the doj's decision. They made the right decision And then on top of what you think is next applied and indeed for visa you know visas strategists the scott. What's it gonna do instead Who wants to confessed on this one. I have no obvious. Talk on the story bradley. I'll go straight to you oklahoma. Dj positioning oversee. This was a memo. I think the visa describing is future competitor. But it's kind of like if you look at shell or chevron will be one of the big oil and gas guys if they go and invest heavily all by one of the renewable energy providers without be something the doj against odin think. so so. i don't view necessarily a competition. It definitely is an aggressive move would have been by visa. I'm but it's not. Apples to apples. Is competing new way of paying the more. Traditional banking rails. I'm it wasn't than buying competing conference. That i think would have been than trying to own their own. Their own immedi system. So i'm sure agree. With the ruling on deeply never went cold so almazo writes Will arenas once it's interesting time. Isn't it broadly. The famous volcano picture was the Was was the that was mentioned and this idea that plot was gonna move in that direction. The doj's argument was always that will fees is nearly sixty sixty five percent market share in the us. It's clearly dominant position if they're acquiring something that could compete with the very called rails itself then. A potential competitive type was being taken off the table and visa would continue to own a even if the rails would move from called to something that was more account based are the question to your point as to whether or not that was ever going to happen but certainly in a lot of the country. I've seen online In the past a couple of days and days since cisco announced on twitter a lot of the vc community is sort of saying it looks like plot themselves may have been motivated to terminate this because five billion dollars for a for an api data company. Seems like a really big price when visa. I pays it. But it's a testament to why we are infantile. That plot could probably got a better deal. I'm and actually the growth in neo biking and challenging ranking during the pandemic has been so astonishing that why wouldn't plod to go somewhere else and could they built mobile themselves than they cut on the on. The visa's umbrella suddenly seems like fintech. Twitter is very very bullish homeless firm plots perspective. I'm but then also people who all big funds of visa think. This is a good move for them as well because it kind of moves them away from being They were always very friendly with the banks kind of the position with the big banks. They have a great relationship. Plods account dates are access is not very well liked by a lot of the major. Us banks indeed. Many of them have been trying to block access to screen scraping together on direct deals in place and that might be one of the biggest threats in plots business model so visas business just gets a lot clearer. All of a sudden plot may be able to go onum become that competitor or something else so a good result all around personally
Visa abandons takeover of Plaid after DOJ raises antitrust concerns
"Visa has announced it is abandoning. Its five point. Three billion dollar planned acquisition of fintech firm plaid after the doj sued over antitrust concerns back in november. Now maybe visa plaid is a unique case. And i'm open to people's opinions about this. But i feel like this is the sort of acquisition that would have sailed through without anyone blinking an eye five or six years ago quoting the journal plaid. The government argued was a nascent but important competitive threat to visa and eliminating that threat would lead to higher prices less innovation and higher entry barriers for online debit services. Visa initially vowed to fight the government and a trial was scheduled for june in a california federal court. Visa and plaid mutually agreed to end of the deal. Plaid chief executive zach. Parrot said in an interview. That plan is in good shape to prosper independent company. Because consumers flocked to the digital finance plaid powers during the coronavirus pandemic the number of paying plaid customers has increased more than sixty percent since the visa deal was announced. Mr parrot added and quote. So what i've been hearing overnight is maybe plaid isn't all that broken up about this deal breaking up as it were because in a world where square is worth one hundred billion dollars pay pal is at two hundred and fifty billion five billion dollars for a key. Part of all of fintech was frankly looking like an absurdly low price like the steal of the century given the current markets. If somehow plaid could tomorrow how much you wanna bet. They'd hit at least a fifty billion dollar valuation. Or something crazy though. I would question what made them went to take the deal in the first place. What do we or do we not know about their underlying business. As alex ramble at a sixteen z tweeted quote plaid underpins virtually all offend tech. It is the strategic pillar that is allowing this industry to be built at unprecedented scale and speed. While i believe the doj decision to be misguided. I'm more excited for plaid. Anzac parents decision to remain independent. Plaid has been and will continue to be the most important piece of financial infrastructure. Powering the fintech services we use today and those we will use tomorrow. The opportunity for fintech has only accelerated and plaid's roadmap is even bigger better and more. Ambitious ludicrous speed. Go and quote and as ham hamster jogi tweeted your move. Patrick collison

Experts say more efforts are needed to understand the reasons behind this and to counteract the uncertainty
Uninterrupted Power Supplies protects your Apple devices
"I've got to admit buying a. Ups to me is about as interesting as getting socks for christmas or going out to replace my water heater. It's something we need take for granted and makes our life better but you know what without a ups you're nice powered apple devices and accessories are vulnerable especially with the electrical grid being so vulnerable to natural disasters. We experience it here every few weeks. And i'm sure you do too elsewhere so this is a serious talk. We need to have as fast having a ups. It often guarantees power and protection for your electric's in your home and business and many of us are working from home with the covid. nineteen epidemic. I commonly hear from people losing data from their devices or suddenly stops working after the power went out or after it has just returned it believers me how a person can spend hundreds or if not thousands of dollars on a new mac book or a new electronic device such as a computer or gaming device and put it at risk of a devastating incident. This is especially true in areas where there are frequently power outages due to maintenance whether and accidents as those who listened to mac minutes. No i live in krige alaska where we frequently lose. Power do one or more of these causes in areas such as interior alaska which is frequented by lightening. These ups offer another layer of protection. Incidents like these are becoming even more devastating with the decreasing capability to repair these electron devices and back one name brand manufacturers selling computers now have reportedly no serviceable is so a damaged power supply would mean a catastrophic loss when it could have been befriended by a ups ups provides backup power during outages and unsafe voltage fluctuations such as damaging surges and spikes and is the perfect choice to protect your data and keep you a typical then can be viewed on the evening national news any night of the week resulting in an unplanned power outage whether you attribute this to climate change is not for debate here on the mac podcast but the fact that appears to be happening more frequently is a concern of this podcast. We've all seen it. The power goes out or flickers. The unprotected computer shuts down potentially damaging the power supply. Along with hopefully saving the document with a ups power continues to flow to your computer on notifying you of an audible alarm. Another scenario is during a brown out when the ups will switch to battery power when they incoming power drops blow a safe voltage level. In either case you will have a limited time to save your work and power down depending on the ups and the power requirements from electrons. This could be a few minutes to an hour. In any case your data and trucks will be safe. There are different types of ups supplies from various manufacturers to choose from depending on your power requirements. The more power capacity of your ups the more expensive most ups cost between thirty five and one hundred fifty dollars and are available from several retail stores often on sale on the start of new year. In fact i picked mine up at office depot. Who had them on sale to decide on which model to buy. You first need to figure out how large of a volt ampere or va capacity. You need every ups comes with the a rating like an inexpensive three hundred and fifty va. Some are more expensive. Ups's exceeding one thousand a this is a way of describing the total power capacity of the battery manufacturers will usually display the va rating prominently on the listing or packaging the higher the rating the more power the ups supply for a longer period. And the more it will likely cost when purchasing a ups. Be sure the va specifications for the equipment. You plan to connect are used. The figure is normally one point six times or a hundred and sixty seven percent of the power consumption in watts. So if you have a device that needs one hundred watts you will need a one hundred sixty. Va rating ups now. This backwards from va to watts. You can multiply the va rating of the power of supply by point six or sixty percent to get a good idea of its power delivering capability and watts for most users. Anything more than six hundred. Va will give you a few minutes of power in which to shut your computer off safely. You'll only need to spend the money for a higher. Va rating if you have a large power drawing device and if you want the ability to run your devices for many minutes while the power is off this might be necessity. If you use a health device which needs to keep running such c-pap the higher end. Ups models offer more outlets increased power along with protection for data and full nines. Buying ups online can have high mailing costs due to their weight and sometime non-availability due mailing restrictions on batteries. This is especially true for those alaskan mac minutes listeners. Furthermore if the ups is defective after the sale the mailing expense would be substantial. I've personally used. Abc ups made by schneider electric for many years without problems and have worked as intended. There are many good manufactures out. There i had to replace batteries after several years. I would say if you stick to a common manufacturer the easier it will be to find replacement batteries the tendency to plug them in and forget them exists for date marking and testing. Ups every year or so is recommended. Some ups will even indicate when that battery needs replaced. The model i use offers battery and surge protected outlets and search protected outlets i used the battery outlets for my computers and just the surge outlets for my less vital devices on the battery side. You will need to power outlets for your computer and your monitor as a minimum. I would also recommend for your cable modem and router this is because the internet connection will be offered operational even when the power goes out so four battery and surge outlets are recommended remembered. The more devices you plug in the less time your ups will be operational for the search outlets would attach computer accessories such as scanners digital phones and other items which need protection but probably aren't needed during an outage before we get too far into twenty twenty one. Spend the extra money and get the peace of mind. The device will be iran for awhile or that school report or work tasker. Which is almost finished isn't lost.

If Small Business Is 'Too Big To Fail'...Then What Now?
"May recall a few years ago when we had a major financial crisis around the world a number of countries stepped in to save the banks and institutions. I doing that these institutions. Were quite simply too big to fail. If these companies failed then the entire economy of their country would implode but the other thing to think about is that in many of these countries small businesses. Sme's small and medium enterprises mom-and-pop shops essentially to a large degree represent up to thirty forty fifty percent plus of the gdp of these economies and in many cases much more in terms of the percentage of the workforce. So the reality is that it's small business that is actually to defile. And i just think it's worth thinking about the implications of that because there's a number of countries right now around the world where many many small businesses of course are closing down the just going out of business as a result of the various conditions and lockdowns in posed by the covid nineteen pandemic that. We're all going through. And so whilst the number of countries are doing what they can to keep a lot of these industries alive. The comes a limit at some point. It goes away. And i think for many countries in many areas. We're reaching that limiting many as well. So i think it's just worth thinking about if these small businesses file just like when the big banks we're gonna fail then we have potentially going to have our entire economies employed so what you can to support your local businesses and whenever the governments are trying to throw money at supporting local businesses and keeping these industries alive. Just remember that collectively they can sometimes represent fifty percent of gdp and sixty percent. Plus of the overall workforce so small businesses are simply to be defile. What do you
Should I Pay Off Debt Before Selling Stocks?
"So i'm twenty five due to a very fortunate situation i kinda got doubly lucky here and got some money from my parents and my grandfather and also got really lucky investing in some things. I didn't completely understand what that money like. You often say The tricky part about that now is the ninety. Five percent of my net worth is in stocks. And i only make fifty grand a year Getting ready to buy a house at my fiance. i'm just concerned about the capital. Gains tax hit to create a downtown for the house. Some thinking i've made my fair share of dumb decisions but this money being young obviously Got a big chevy tahoe. That you know. I don't think i necessarily deserve. But i just happened to like something and do i sell it number. One deduct free and create positive equity to maybe absorb that tax. It or keep the truck just because i enjoy it is the truck paid for twenty thousand muslim but Yeah i i'm either way. I'm not taking the car anymore. So i'm thinking bill situations neither reading it off and you're twenty five years old. You make fifty thousand twenty eight thousand dollar truck and you have how much in this investment account. Six hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Wow wow yeah you've got you've been blessed beyond measure he s and how much how much of that is gain that is over a year old Probably about seventy percent of it okay. So that'll be taxed at fifteen percent and it's in single stocks and from the way you're describing this it sounds like it's fairly high risk situation in my right Some of it is the i decided you know. I got scared of it pretty early. So i moved sixty percent of the into management. I would say the other. Forty percent is individual stocks around consumer data collection and medical diagnostic collection. Yeah yeah uber. High risk cutting edge small-cap technologies and. Yeah you're pretty much. Playing russian roulette with those things are the roulette wheel anyway So The way i answer questions. We answered questions on this show is what would we do if we woke up in your shoes. Yeah man first off. Thank goodness you're where you are. Congratulations that's wonderful. The danger is that it worked that you may try to do it again. That's that's the dangerous part. It's like the guy that drops one quarter into a slot machine wins and he spends the rest of his vacation but all his money in the slot machine. Try and do it again. because you're not going to do it again. I d i. I do not have investments of those types because They scare me and And my real estate portfolio alone is worth hundreds of millions. So i can speak with Emotional authority in this situation. How it feels. When i was your age i was a millionaire and lost everything. And i don't want you to fall into that. What i would do is i would Move anything that is not in a managed account in mutual funds. Into that. And i would pay off the truck tomorrow if you're going to keep it Normally we say do not own things that are more than half your annual income. This is barely but you also have six hundred and fifty thousand freaking dollars laying over here so. I think you can afford a driver's truck if you want to write And then Believe it or not. I'm going to suggest you do not buy a home with your fiance right now. On number one. You don't buy homes with people you're not married to After you're married. I would rent something even if it's something nice for six months get to know each other. It takes about a year of being married to know how close to your mother in law by. Yeah yeah in other. After a year of marriage you will make different housing decision than you would make today together. We've been running here for about two years. We've been married. yeah correct after. You've been married a while. You will make a different decision. You would make as shacked up john say's It's a different thing. Just is true and so i would take my time. And you've been the. There's a tortoise and the hare you've been the hair and you're ahead in the race and i'm going to switch sides and become the tortoise and i'm just gonna slow your butt down on the investing and on the house i'm really happy where you're where you are and you're obviously a very sharp guy. Yeah i mean you're obviously very bright so you may not do anything we say to you called and asked us which the danger of that is. We're gonna tell you. Tell you the truth and i think he will dave. I think he's he's a little nervous a little scared. He wants to make the right decisions. She wants house. Yeah and. Here's the thing. Dave i was going to say instead of for you know. Save like you said spent the first six months we year when she will get married and then with him walking away after he pays the capital gains. I pay cash. I'll pay cash for the house. That's why i was gonna say did i. And i'm saying it's like a two three hundred thousand four hundred. I don't care i've hundred. I don't care now you're good really. Everything's paid for everything. The money's gone. Yeah of it your all your taxes. Well i mean by the time you guys not the. It's back. investment accounts. Guess yes your taxes at fifteen percent on seventy percent of six fifty is just. That's not gonna cripple. The situation is And yes i would pay the capital gains in order to get this in the right setting and it doesn't sound like that much of it's gonna be subject to capital gains because sound like you've already done that when you moved from these higher higher risk things into the manage stuff you probably took your capital gain chen you liquidated investments to move them. That's my guess anyway I don't know exactly how you did that. But that's that's what it sounds like. You did to me so anyway. I'm gonna pay what capital gains. You got to pay for making the move and get it all undermanaged and i would sit there something for a little for a year after marriage six months after you're married then i would buy with cash and pay off the car today and i wanna say to america listening. You are processing at work for him. Let me go try that. No do not do it. I mean i think the numbers. They've update numbers right around. Seventy eight percent of the people who play in his field. Do not make a dime. They actually lose money and so Yes you hear. It worked over here But it does not mean more than likely if you had a buddy that will hit a lottery. Ticket doesn't mean that smart by lottery tickets. It's just you know that's the bottom line. And so and brandis are gavin smart enough to wise enough to be a little bit afraid in this situation. But congratulations that you're there. I'm so happy that you're twenty five years old and six hundred fifty thousand dollars. That's just so cool. That's so neat. And thanks for calling in asking the question.
Teledyne to acquire Flir Systems in cash-and-stock deal valued at about $8 billion
"We're going to start with the deal of the day. Teledyne technologies is buying clear systems in a cash and stock deal. That's in the neighborhood of eight billion dollars which is a pretty nice neighborhood. Flare systems is in the business of thermal imaging cameras and sensors shares up about twenty percent this morning shares of teledyne down more than seven percent. Anytime i see that disparity jason the first place my brain goes is people on wall street thinks to teledyne whatever they think of flare systems. They think taliban overpaid well i mean. That's that's certainly possible. I mean it's very much in line with that. Typical move that we see with with the acquirer stock getting hit because the burden of proof ultimately shown them to prove that this is a sensible acquisition I do see the interest though here in a little context of systems a company. I've been following for a while now and it. It's actually a recommendation in or augmented reality beyond service of added in there for for a while and understanding that business. I definitely understand the interest coming from teledyne here. And so i i forms. What flare does you mentioned. Thermal imaging mean that ultimately is what they are into thermal infrared imaging. They consider themselves the world's six cents if that gives you any idea but They they make their money by selling cameras and sensors and the related technology with that main focus on thermal and infrared imaging in these are these are cameras that can can do all sorts of things from detecting elevated body temperatures to chemical biological radiological nuclear explosive threat detectors so they have industrial side of the business which generates about sixty percent of the of the company's total revenue in the defense side of the business. Well which generates about forty percent in similar business is is to teledyne but is it. There's not a lot of overlap. I think teledyne is really interested in that thermal focused in given the the neat things thermal is doing. I can understand the forward-looking the looking major acquisition getting that thermal technology. So this is as i said. The deals worth about eight billion dollars. Teledyne is on. Its own a thirteen billion dollar company. Yeah do you think does that. Strike you as odd. It always strikes me as odd when when we see a deal and the acquiring company is not dramatically bigger than the company. They're buying yeah. It is it is a bit of a not quite a merger of equals but but close to that in again. I think the main the main idea here is being able to bring all of this. Ip in house in leveraging that to to the fullest extent. And and. I think one of the interesting things about flare is that it's it's a vertically integrated supply chain so that means they keep their supply of their manufacturing basically in house or they control a lot of that and inflator until nine together that both companies that really value and protect their ip right their intellectual property in this sensor market. But because there's no overlap there not something where they're going to be talking about would link alita trimming the fat and whittling away unnecessary expenses in leading part of part of business. Just because there isn't really that much. Overlap i mean sure there will be some some consolidating costs that come with all this and Whatnot but when when you look back to the thermal imaging nature the stuff that is doing one on one of the things. I really like business up like for a while. They do a good job of partnering up with other tech companies out there in doing really neat new things and so another company. I've talked about on this show before in a stock i also answers is a company that actually partners with clear. F- lear an ancestor partnering together in order to deliver detection solutions for assisted in assistant driving autonomous vehicles. So flare ultimately like you see this. This debate as to whether lied or thermal imaging is is the more appropriate platform or censor for for autonomous vehicles and lied just kinda like laser detected distance. Assessors light has some shortcomings particularly when it comes to adverse weather conditions and flair because that thermal imaging is seen seen as a better option as opposed to guide. Our for autonomous vehicles is fleeing an ancestor doing a lot of work in that autonomous vehicle market. While that's very nascent. And i think we're still a ways away. I just think it goes to show the type of technology that you're dealing with here. And they're also part of those those microsoft hollow lenses in all of the different applications that you can undertake those things so it's just. It's a lot of neat technology. They're are very focused on protecting that. Ip i understand why television would like to bring that in house in it. Sounds like they're going to pay. They're going to pay a fair price. And when i when. I recommend that the stock was trading around thirty two times earnings and this this implies about thirty six times trailing earnings so they're not paying through the nose i betcha flare could probably held out and gotten a little bit more out of it but it. It's it's i think fair price for good business.

The issue is that data gets an owned by facebook. And a lot of it is some information that a lot of gonna wanna share like we'll computer browser on their location. If they're signed into facebook they know a whole lot more. Even you know who they are their likes are wants. All the interactions. They've had on facebook and basically facebook contract this person as they're moving around the internet and this is becoming more of a problem is becoming more of an issue because feel realizing wow. I'm being tracked We started to see this a couple of years ago with the cookies. Message that you see for gdp are people say. Oh the cy has cookies. And it's a way for us to track and people just ignored it and they're just click. Okay things are going to get a little bit. Hotter apple has already announced that in their next ios update for was fourteen. They're going to have actual pop-ups actual System messages from the operating system telling the user telling the person with the iphone. Hey this site has a tracking pixel. Do you want to be tracked. And it's actually quite a statement. It's actually something you really can't ignore. You have to say yes my movements or no. I'm paraphrasing of course. But the point here is that the privacy issue of tracking people is becoming more and more a- battle and obviously apple is going because their brand is all about privacy and security and boy do they have a market share so a lot of your users a lot of people that use iphone. You know if they're use. Iphone are going to see this message on your site. This means you can't have a tracking pixel and you're gonna have to think of ways to market your business you can. Of course run ads without attracting pixel. But you can't track conversions. Which makes it really hard for you to be able advisor ads. Which then begs the questions. Should you run ads. So this is something you need to keep an eye on and you need to plan ahead already in our business. We're trying to move away from paid advertisement or paid acquisition where customers into long term long tail content marketing whether it's a blog whether it's videos whether it's youtube whether it's partnerships with as their affiliates. The point here is that we want to own the traffic. We ought to be able to rely on our own content to bring us a traffic and not use. Third party apps to advertise. This is a big shift. It's not easy. It's not just facebook. Google or anybody else that has any kind of pixel on your site or requires a pixel so that you can track conversions so if you use paid. Acquisition us paid ads on lincoln on facebook on google. You may want to think of other ways to bring in traffic at least wean yourself off of the a bit because it's not going to be as effective as it used to emmy even get more expensive so there you have a guys three trends to look out for twenty twenty one. Get on top of this and be ahead of the game.

Omni Hotels Accepted Millions In PPP Funds But Didn't Pay Workers
"A lot of hotels closed their doors in the spring. And some still haven't reopened. These hotels were able to keep their workers on the payroll because of funding from the federal paycheck protection program. But one national chain omni hotels and resorts is under fire for laying off than and workers. They use the funds for other purposes bill driscoll of member station w. esa in pittsburgh reports one. Leadoff worker is killed. Sia moronta a health club attendant at the omni. Providence in rhode island. She's worked there twenty one years more onta. A single mother with children applied for unemployment and food stamps. Then she heard what she thought was good news. I well struggling to provide for my family. I learned that they only have received some ppp money great. At least you know. They're going to help us. Can't buy when it comes to basic needs. The ppp is the paycheck protection program. The half trillion dollar initiative was part of the huge pandemic relief. Package congress passed in march. The p p offered loans. That are forgivable if employers you sixty percent of the money for payroll related expenses. Ep was designed as an alternative to unemployment at least for the eight weeks of payroll benefits. It supplied the omni. Providence applied for a two point six million dollar loan and said it would be chained some two hundred fifty jobs. Balloon was approved in april but eight months later with unemployment benefits run out and health coverage long-gone meranti and the other laid off are still waiting right now. We are in december and we having here anything about using that money to help. James employees moronta belongs to the service workers union unite here with three hundred thousand members. In north america using government data unite. Here says omni. Hotels received a total of seventy six million dollars. P p p loans about a third of that went to hotels where the union represents workers. Carlos outta maiyo is unite. Here's executive vice president boston. I've spoken to hundreds of workers to work at the army. Parker house at not of them have received a single dime of this money and looking at this winter a lot of them could really use it. So where did the money go in a statement. The omni chain based in dallas said it didn't use the funds to pay workers because the hotels were closed or operating at low volumes. Ppp rules allow a business to use the funds for payroll even if it were closed but the omni chose not to instead the chain promised to repay the loans with interest at least the part of the loans that are not forgiven but these loans carry a below market interest rate of just one percent which angers demayo it's disgusting companies. Wanna try to use this as a way to get a low interest loan from the federal government. Critics say repaying the loans beside the point. Lisa gilbert is executive vice president of watchdog group public citizen. Thank you think about other businesses. That maybe didn't get money because he did either to small businesses over struggling or another company that might if you actually pay their workers as for these workers. Many feel betrayed again. You'll see moronta only call family. They always say that. We are finally so where the family treatment when it comes to the employees the unite here union has asked the small business administration which administers the ppp and the us department of treasury to scrutinize the omni loans. Whether they are forgiven remains undetermined even as congress approves a new round of pandemic relief
Diversity and Inclusion Opportunities in Conversational AI With Roger Kibbe, Senior Developer and Evangelist for Viv Lab
"And kind of building off of that We kinda started speaking on it. But what would be your perspective on the state of inclusiveness and diversity in conversational ai. So so i like to think of things. Globally sometimes big picture and draw down to the to the more local small picture but there is something aram near eight hundred million people in the world who are illiterate and although the internet. There's something like i believe that. Internet access about sixty percent people have internet access. That means four point. Two billion people don't have internet access. So i think about. There's this huge group of people who don't have internet access and nan bear is a non trivial portion largely probably of them who are illiterate And so one unlock waste can be a technology certainly to those eight hundred million people who are literate right. it'd be a way for them to interact with technology in a way they were previously completely locked out but i also think of home bringing a voice assistant may be a way to bring technology to and the internet and access to people who otherwise don't have it because it's relatively cheap and inexpensive compared to some other technologies so i get all excited about kind of the world opening up with voice but i think even if you think about let's just take it down to an i'll just talk about the us. So certainly. the diversity of our population is not yet reflected invoiced designers and developers. And you know it's not only Being a good human to be diverse. But i also. I always say it makes great business sense when we're not diverse we you really constrain. The number of uses of our product look. I'm a white middle-aged american male. That gets when i build experiences. I build experiences that likely. Resonate with white millage american males. That's a very limited subset of the people. Though the more diverse that people are who build your product the more diverse your customers are traits so it behooves the industry to really have a diverse a As possible people building products. Because they're going to bill things that there's a whole audience that then will love that experience become engaged with it and it just makes you know you get another virtual site virtuous cycle where You build more diverse things you get a greater more diverse audience. You get more users. It's good. I think when i look at voice i think we're doing okay and i say that relative to the tech industry and i say we're doing so on a on a gender basis. We're probably doing better than some other areas of technology which is heartening to me. But there's certainly some work that needs to be on there on a racial basis. Now we have to do. I just don't see us as nearly as diverse is like. I said that the country as the world is You know we need to. We need to go out and find those people with diverse backgrounds and diverse diversed genders and diverse racial to go become part of the industry one of the beauties. This is a new technology. So i would love us not to make some mistakes that we've seen in the past new technologies where the same old same old belt built the new stuff right. So how can we go and get people who never touch technology before. Bring them in and say. Hey here's this. Cool new tack a be part of it be part of that as a consumer but i also would love to be part of it is go build design. It right are building. 'cause you're gonna build super cool interesting experiences. That wouldn't have been thought of in less someone with your background. was brought into the industry. So i could go on. And on. But i think we're we're doing okay but darn there's a lot of opportunity up there we need to keep on talking about it and besides hockey we can't keep acting upon it. It's it's kind of imperative.

Operation Warp Speed is living up to its name
"Have been developed with such speed. And we've seen a great example of private public partnership working with with operation warp speed when it comes to pharmaceutical companies developing drugs at a pace that no one expected. No one expected back in the spring. I anthony fauci was predicting that could probably take about two years to get a vaccine. And we'd be. We consider ourselves pretty lucky if we had a vaccine that was fifty or sixty percent effective. Well now we have to vaccines. That are ninety five percent effective in less than a year twice as fast as predicted almost twice as effective as predicted. That's really good news and as you say it's a public private partnership. I think this is a great model for other areas. We have so much criticism of capitalism. Today this is all the follow capitalism in fact. No it's hard to imagine any governmental system mustering the resources to do what these private companies have done so quickly but they also couldn't have done it on their own they needed these huge infusions of investment from the government billions of dollars particularly in guaranteeing them that we would we would buy the doses long. Before we knew whether say the pfizer drug was gonna actually work the us government was ordering. I believe it initially one hundred million doses so they could afford to take the risk to start manufacturing the drug before it was done with clinical trials.
Why Is My Email Marketing Not Working?
"Let's dive into this and let's talk about why your email marketing isn't working if you're listening to this and you just feel a bit disheartened by the you know you send an email and maybe it's it's like to me just feel like nobody cares. Nobody loves you. nobody's listening. Nobody's buying anything. That's the worst bit and you just feel like it's just not working. That's what we want to talk about here today. I think the first thing we need to do is talk about what is not working. What does that mean. 'cause i think if there's a bunch of different people listening to this with different who all think in their email marketing is not working that might be triggered by different things. Maybe somebody sending emails literally. Nobody's opening them. Maybe somebody else's sending emails and lose people opening them but they're not getting any sales so i suppose let's dig into some of the possible options here are about what people might think of as not working. Yeah i mean. This isn't that we talk to league members about. Isn't it like every month whom you've got. We have to group. Coaching calls a month and pretty much every session. Somebody comes across and says they spit not working. And so we say okay. That's nice what do you mean by not working. And i think the first thing we've got to remember is a lot of us look at open rates as a signal as to whether your email marketing is not working. How do people are opening our emails. The problem with that is it's not that useful a metric. it's well it's not totally unuseful. We have talked about in previous episodes. The reason that we obsessed with an open rates is because it's the big number that the amar in platform shows us because they have that data to some degree. So i think open rates is probably not a good indicator that it's not working. The the point is interesting is if they suddenly started plummeting so if your open rate is x. percent and let's say it's twenty percent and then suddenly it goes to eighteen. Then it's fifteen than it's just saying this declining open rate then. That's a trend. Definitely take up. What are they going. Remember is this question which we get in the free facebook group that you will mark community and all over. The place is what's a good open rate. We probably see that a couple of times a month over in the group right under the answer is always the same. The reasonable like no. It's not a nice answer right. It's not what anybody wants to hear. But we gotta remember the business and email marketing. That goes with. It is a one player game. That's a really important thing to think about email. I'm business all of that. It is a one player game. You are your numbers. Is your revenue up. Is your prophet up. Is your open rate up on what your numbers doing in your business and the only aim of your game that your plan right now is to increase your numbers. Whatever you're starting out you might be at a sixty percent open rate that we talked about with guests in the past who've had that all u continuing to maintain that and sometimes you're going to see declines because of those we'll get into in a second so let's forget about open rates as an indicate a directly of whether it's work or not fact. We have a different number that we like to actually consider think. Yeah just before we talk about that. Think the other thing that's interesting about open. Rates is the most people are expecting too much from their email straightaway. So like we've had people come onto our into our hotline coaching calls in the league. Or just you know. Talk to us events. And they've said things like i've got only sixty percent of my people opened my emails. And what they mean by that. Is there's a whopping forty percent of people that's four hundred out of every thousand the not opening my emails and they feel like that's a catastrophe and actually that's in most industries would be considered an almighty big open. So i think again. Don't expect too much from your email if you are just getting started and you're really looking at this and you're kind if you think you number is low because you you know what are the people's must be by you know surely it's going to be higher than that. So that's the first thing is doing this heart until you've at least investigates find okay. Great book what other other people in my marketplace. What what should. I be washed. I'll be aiming for is like benchmark right. I in one player game. You want to do that. You're not aiming for eighty percent when everyone else in your industry is only getting twenty percent. That's an unrealistic place to start. You want to at least be aiming for about the same saw a number but the as can he said the metric we really look for is nothing really to do with open rates or click through rates or any of that stuff. It's actually to do with how much money you're gonna make per subscriber per month because at the end of the day. You can't pay your bills. You can't pay your staff you can't pay for all that software the ears you compared to listening to this podcast quits. Right you can't pay all of the stuff that you see with with open rates. Click through rates. Instead you want to actually making sales so there's this old adage and i don't know where it's coming from but i think it's a myth this ancient thing that's been going around saying you should be able to earn an. I heard again this morning. One dollar per subscriber month in your business so if you've got one on subscriber you should make doll. I've got a hundred subscribers. You make one hundred dollars thousand subscribers. You should make thousand dollars now. I know that a lot of businesses are struggling to actually get anywhere close to that number so i think first of all. That number is a myth. However if you do it right you can make significantly more than one dollar per subscriber per month under that. The metric is higher than one dollars per subscriber per month. But what you really want to be focused on is that number which is a like a cocktail of things. it's a cocktail of urban rates and click through rates and conversion rates. And all of that stuff. Because of course they do factor into that equation. If nobody is opening your emails. You're not gonna make any money per month. So they do factor into it but it's it's way more complex than just open rates quickly rates because again it factors in the stuff you promoting the relationship you've got with your list. How often you make office. I mean one of the things to remember as well. I think people forget. This is about the sample size like how many people are on your list. That really affected. And it's like it's double edged sword as well so for example. If you've got a a massive list well as your list grows in general because of technology and because of all the constraints around tack basically your open rates and a lot of your deliverability percentage wise are gonna come gonna come down because you'll like working. These servers a lot harder which means all of the email providers. Esp's eugene males and your white males and hot meals and all that stuff are all going to get a bit more sensitive. You're sending a lot of email. We're going to have considerate less personal. So we're gonna give you slightly less deliverability that's kind of what happens so with a lodge list. It's actually very natural for as this grows for that deliverability for that open rape and for those numbers per subscriber to watch to actually reduce the other thing to remember is with a small list. So that's the good thing we a big list of calls you've got more people. And that's a lovely flip side of that smaller list. you can have probably higher open rates. Probably more earnings per subscriber most more sales and more value per subscribe. But the pop. The the negative is that you you. Have you have a smaller sample size. You have less data you literally have less people going through an off. I when you put it out there so if you've got fifty people on your list and let's see hundreds making make the math easy because that's not do kennedy math live on the show. So let's do a hundred people on your list and you put them you send them to an offer to a sales page off a page and one person buys it you might go to one percent conversion rate will you have. You've only put one central of hundred people. Compare that two thousand where you might get ten people by might get twenty people by. You're not giving enough of all over opportunity so you do constantly balance those two things and of course a big a big a list is probably not will take all over a smaller list in general but just be aware that but as it grows you might get those numbers deplete so think about the first part of this gas is to think about. What do you mean by. It's not working. Does it mean i'm not making sales. Because that is the ultimate macro metric. All you make in sound. What is your earnings per subscriber and is it going up or is it coming down. That's what you want know. Take a period of time january. How did we make some scribner and that simple math. Isn't it simply number two subscribers and it's the people are and how much earned that month from the from the subscribers right lovely stuff.

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