"What does that boys. I hate him on missing. Some and some people get their own introduction okay. I don't know if you if you like this nickname but but it's the one that I've heard since I've been at this company K the face. I've never heard that before never heard the face of NFL network. I'm rich Eisen back in the studio that you built by hand. You know what I'm looking around the studio this. This room looks absolutely nothing like not at all. You've got the podcast and never could have imagined there'd be lights. There's actual cameras. you know what it was was just a table and crap against the wall. That was it now. This is like a legit room. This is very cool eight. How do you feel very Damasec. Officially titling the Studio Studio Sixty Sitton you know what damage was the one who put the crap against the wall. There was like this big in Troy palmolive like fat head cut up against the wall. You got this built up here. I mean let's be real damage X. Getting a podcast stadio belt I understand. Let's let's the real. Let's be real. I got nothing built out what it was was me trying to figure out what else I can do other than NFL total total access around these parts and just do some other things outside of just the same show I would do every day and I decided to to ask in my contract renegotiation the ability to podcast Steve Bornstein who is in charge of this place back then does that's not forty-seven bosses ago so you know I known Steve Forever. He was the one who hired me at ESPN wall. He had people to higher median but he was the one who actually hired me for the NFL network. He asked how much it would cost. I told him hardly anything he's like. Why are are you even asking me like we don't even put it in contractors. Do whatever you want okay so I did that and then a lot of people around here would do the usual which is like. What do you mean you're doing. What are you doing in what how do we how do there was no concept of of of figuring out what it would look like or sound like or or support it in any way. I just kept on chugging like the little little engine that could doing my own thing. eventually the lockout was coming and people in the programming department asked me. Ah If I could do it on television because they needed cheap programming. I said I would do it as long as you called it. Inexpensive programming is opposed yeah so we then did our scrabble. We would do some of the podcast in this room when there were no cameras and we would then and go over to what is the voice over booth across the alleyway here where there was one singular fixed camera on the wall we used to do our updates in that room with a green screen behind it it had the look of hostage video and so we did it in there in in front of a green screen. Eventually they spent the money to actually get like a shower curtain that would put the podcast logo on it and you we would just move it across us behind me for the background of it and we put together fifty six of those wow like over a year. I did it and then Thursday the night football came to be at the NFL network where it was just on our network Can I pay ninety nine. I tunes for an episode of that. I would love it. I have no idea actually I think they flush them all down the toilet around here. 'cause you know again. This was now. I love the fact that there's so many podcasts here and you guys obviously our robust part of of what's being billed here as well you know the NFL should have more than just television Asian behind it. You guys do a great job and it's it's terrific. I'd love that we did some great shows and I was very proud of it but then when Thursday night football was on all sixteen in weeks essentially here on the NFL network. They're like we you know the TV show over so then I kind of just to finish the story said how about we just do like podcast television shows for kickoff Thanksgiving and and the draft and just around the tent pole moments so that was kind of a compromise is and then direct TV called me up and said how'd you like to do it every day on the radio as well as TV here after Dan Patrick. Show and I'm like sold. I'd love to do it and I literally had to sell. I think the blood of my children to get that in my contract I still have the still you know I still have but I'll Abi and very honest with you like Roger. Goodell was one million percent the guy who basically said let's. Let's do this for my show that I'm doing on direct TV every day and he's been supportive of every last thing I've ever done so now area. I'm with you guys again. Personally like to thank you because if it weren't aren't for you starting this entire engine. I know that I'd probably be working at stop and shop in Paramus New Jersey. He's a direct thing premise do but I'd be at the mall there you go. We'd hang out and get lunch together. Got A cake. They're great place to get a kick. This is this is fun. Actually I didn't I didn't make sense that we're going in this direction but it's fun to talk a little oral. The history of the podcast business here in this building because yeah rich started the whole thing with the rich Eisen podcast damaged came in under that umbrella rela doubt and Dave gave mark and I are I chance by putting on the back of our show then when we got together as a foursome rich was our first guest which was kind of a really big deal for us and that that US gave us some legitimacy that you came on as I back when it's neat man like I love planning flags around here. That's what I told actually when I first got hired by Steve Bornstein and I got a phone call in the middle of July okay like I might last sportscenter is in late late. May when I left the sportscenter said had no earthly idea was in fact my last sports ended the few days left to negotiate that all went to Hell and then I got married a week later and then on my honeymoon is where I signed the NFL network contract and then later on that summer. I was just getting ready to transition to move from Bristol out to Los Angeles upgrade and I got a little and I got a phone call from an NFL executive. I literally never heard of I mean like I was not very well versed in the NFL world when I got hired here. I was baseball guy in ESPN and so other than Paul Tagliabue. I didn't know anybody else who is in the NFL power structure in any way shape or form so I called up Bornstein Mike. You Know Hey Steve. I got a call from NFL Executive wants to meet with me. You know like what can you tell me he goes. Who Was it. I'm like Roger. Goodell goes hang up the phone and call him now. Don't talked. I don't say another word hang up because he was the COO at the time. He's always calling me. It's very annoying but I know but it was it was one of those things that we just got started and it was really very exciting and he was from the beginning from get go like we have hired you to do a job. Go Out and do it and if anybody ever forgives you grief for the job you know you call me up. We'll try and fix it and you know so coming here starting planning the flag for and I told him and I told everybody else that you know hey. You hired me to plant a flag. I'll try as many as possible in the fact that I'm in this room. It's pretty cool. and you know the reason you're the face rich is you're the face ace of NFL network you were the first people saw in November two thousand three when the network went on the air for the first time I was thinking about that as we look ahead now to what's going going on in the NFL back in November. Two thousand three drew brees struggling in a second season with the chargers. Yeah Starter Eli Ben and Philip Rivers seven seven months away from being drafted. Yeah I interviewed. Ben On the total access set prior to the draft he was here as a fresh face kid out of Miami of Ohio and a a prospect. We try to get as many prospects as they were here in. Los Angeles and I interviewed him. Like what number would you why you number seven and he said because he loves James Bond Donned he wanted to meet Jessica Alba. I mean there's a whole interview as closer away too baggy really seriously like I love those flashbacks flashbacks so up. No you didn't but then Tom Brady and Bill Bell jacker cruising toward a super bowl. Yes some things have changed. Some things have happened but this is. This is a time of change riches someone. That's been around the game as close as you have for years now because you have. Andrew Luck retiring foles gets injured SAM DONALD GETS Mono but big Ben and drew brees with these injuries Cam who was such a big one when mark and I came to the company two thousand ten when cam showed up the later that was such a huge deal and now you don't know what's going on with his career does feel like a time of transition right. I do agree with that and the neat thing is as of of about two three years ago a lot of the conversation around who's going to be next. We also thought Bree Brady would be long gone by h forty two also right but we were wondering who is going to be that next generation as peyton manning was was transitioning out and and retiring and Mahomes is a revelation revelation. Dak Prescott has been nothing short of absolutely phenomenal and I think is one more of those performances away from actually getting the majority Nia football fans to feel that he deserves the big fat contract that he's going to get you've got wentz and Golf Josh Allen One is two and sitting here and you might be fluke whatever but the two and quarterbacks are also including Jimmy G. and you know Mark Jackson Lamar Jackson's on Watson. They're here so ex generator scene out already. Which is why you're beginning to see. I think maybe Daniel Jones is going to get a start because he's more mobile mobile and obviously couldn't be less mobile couldn't be was that's true so again. I think you are seeing a transition in a way that and nobody even saw coming a few years ago all right. It's great to average here and by the way keep an eye out riches apart by the way before you yes it into something you you speed bumped over Darnold Hasmono. I mean like you just kept on where we're going to get any kept going. That was normal..

I mean, these Scranton wilkes-barre rail riders because they will be AAA affiliate of the Yankees put Giancarlo Stanton. And Aaron judge on the field tonight. How about that Stanton was hardly taken an at bat, all year long was promoted from single ADA triple A on his way back to Yankee Stadium. And also on the same day, a rehab assignment for Aaron judge begins tonight. So keep an eye on all that, as they make their way back to the Yankees lineup Yankees have lost a couple in a row, though. They've lost seven out of their last ten still a half game in first place. In the American League east on forty one in twenty-six best record in baseball belongs to the Minnesota Twins, forty five and twenty to convey, rake or can they rake? They rake baseball mad. They can rake. Terrell Davis can join us top next now and this was a no brainer for me to call my buddy and fellow NFL network. Colleague because not only could he speak to this man, as an owner in the NFL and a man who employed people and a man who loved people and a man who loved the city of Denver and had nothing but love back. But the NFL network, wouldn't exist. If it wasn't for Pat bolan that I can speak to Pat. I said this when Pat bolan was. Was. In inducted it while he was announced to be in the hall of fame, and certainly when he became sick and left public life. And I'll say it again near. Mere hours after his passing he passed away last night and. The NFL network would not have existed without him. He was the primary owner when the NFL network was in the ether. In the early offs. He was the primary owner to deal with broadcast partners in the NFL art. Modell was the first owner when TV was just becoming a valuable commodity back in the sixties, late fifties, sixties and seventies, then Pat bolan when he took over the Denver Broncos became very influential within the ownership ranks, and then when the nineties hit and he's winning all those championships with TD and John Elway and Mike Shanahan in all those years before, is he was trying to get one with Elway and Dan Reeves became very influential in the broadcasting world and without his support and passion, the NFL network would not have existed my old boss. Steve Bornstein dealt directly with Pat bolan all the time. Pat bolan was the first owner to ever visit us in the NFL network offices. It was the first owner to ever appear on the NFL network was the owner.

"When I was at initially, the idea was, we were gonna launch three or four other channels, but I was going to be able to help Brun. Some smaller digital cable nets. Those never got launched because really that period became a how do you take a successful company that was growing in all of a sudden, the environment is the ad sales market. The floor is falling out. How do you keep your margins where they are? And so became much more about managing cash flow than growth, which was a huge c change from the last five or six years had been these incredible uninterrupted years of growth. And so that, that was a little bit of a. A little bit of a shock to go from one. One direction. So. Consistently all the way basically doing a u-turn into the other direction. And so the, you know, the role that affects became. A lot about how do you manage the business? How do you manage costs and less about conquering, the world? Which right? So I mean that's a function of the economy, the economic cycle. And if there's tons of growth you throw money at problems and hope that they stick in if on the other side. It's like yeah. You have cost fire people make make hard decisions. And so, yeah, the what I had gotten really good at was watching cable networks was figuring out how to. You know what? What is needed? What do you? What's the business plan for launching a new network? What's, what niece's needed what management is needed. You know, and shortly thereafter, the NFL. I had made the decision that they were going to launch their own cable network, and so they needed to find people to come to come on that. So that timing was pretty good, and so ended up leaving to go work for Steve Bornstein at the NFL and that was, you know, an amazing opportunity. And so I spent four years working for Steve and building out NFL network to me exactly what, you know, how to do building a network. So it was, you know, the, the NFL was and still is an incredibly hallowed place. You know, very, very smart people work their people generally don't leave very often because it's a, it's a great place to work. When I joined Paul tag. Lou was the Commissioner. You know, and he was this sort of mythical figure, and you know, Steve Bornstein, I'd read about my whole career is the, you know, the guy that made ESPN ESPN, so, you know, coming into that environment was was pretty exciting. You know, so we, we, we built out NFL network and. You know, had a grueling time. Negotiating with cable operators, who didn't think highly of the NFL, because there was a clear bias on our part towards direct TD. So. Having to navigate that was really tough. But at the end of the day, you know, I was out there trying to get distribution for a great product. And so we ended up having one of the most successful launches ever for a cable channel, although I will say there were a lot of times where I thought it wasn't going to work. Really, you know, you had a lot of people not taking phone calls and. Being. Not mincing words in. Sharing their disappointment with past negotiations with the NFL and not really think thinking fund, Lear kindly. Yeah. So there were there are a lot of times, or I was thinking. Wow, this, this really might not work, but ultimately, at the end of the day, through persistence, and, and even more so that we had an arsenal of great programming to put into the mix. We're able to to get our distribution which which was key..

"I I wanted to be counter cultural. I wanted to be in the music scene. I've grown up. In North Carolina. And my dad was mailman at he takes his post office on Saturday, the sort mail, and I'd take the magazines and the two cared about were Sports Illustrated in Rolling Stone. Right. They were my access to the world of sports. Remember it might to as a gated in the seventies into. Remember, you got Sports Illustrated on Wednesday and read about the USC UCLA game that unit for as earlier. Yeah. Did you didn't see because it was there's only one game on television. So that was access to that in then Rolling Stone was the guide to the music scene in the counterculture. And you know, that those two things sort of formed me in terms of the world of publishing that sorta reading books so you were sales initially, and then you move more, no hours. I was secretary initially. I was an intern. Yeah. So I was hired. I mean after moved up is hired as an intern and then moved up non mood up to. Circulation department ran newsstand sales for a year or two random descriptions. I did the business models working directly. Forgot him Kim Brown ridge. You sorta ran the business for yawn. Yes. So I would come in his can't guy who'd run the models for what the next three years. We're gonna look like and and jahns had difficult. The NFL went to ten at that point. Well, he's is both right yawn is one entity in if if you walk into right moment, yet couldn't be more charming. He puts his arm around eight tells you how great you are. And you walk into wrong moment. He's difficult moody. And and he did, you know only fire me, we share this in common. I was fired for insubordination is that true. Yes. I was that was the publisher of us magazine. Tenures Atra started and yon wanted me to do some things which I resisted and said, I thought I understood better than he did forgetting in my mind that I didn't actually own the magazine he did then he said showed you the door was dismissed freely. I don't think I knew that part. So what happened after Rolling Stone at Rolling Stone? I needed a job so Winward spend for here. So some guys music business. Steve sweat in. David Horowitz had invested in spends a to work who Bob Guccione junior. The raw great to me. I mean, I was on the rebound of dismiss it Rolling Stone in January of nineteen ninety work for spin about three weeks later in had any spin happened is PM happened because spin, you know, I had small small kids and live out in the suburbs. And spin was a bunch of twenty two year olds. And just it was the right thing for me to do. But it did give me a good transition. And then Disney hired me getting Michael Lynton to come at work in California Glynn the future Sony guy. Yeah.

"Why was the essence of why we're sports fans as opposed to can go on my polemic like do my own pike as about about sports versus entertainment, capital sport is not entertainment capital, E, entertainment is entertainment, and it's mostly scripted. And and and if you sport don't know, we don't know, and that's the point you don't know. And that's the ultimate beauty of it. That's the ultimate tension of the alternate grid thing. Recent groups is that we don't know we we have to see it played out. So absolutely Bobby the wisdom on this goes back to something our friend and our for. Boss at ESPN. Steve Bornstein once said he was asked to explain the explosion of sports and ESPN and everything over the years that had led to him becoming the guy who ran the network and in another time he said, why is it so popular because you can't go to blockbuster and rent tonight's game? And it's one of the great lines. I've ever heard about sports. And when you look at this game. It's you're absolutely right. Nothing has changed. Nothing will change before the kick on whatever to six thirty eastern time on Sunday night. You look at this game. And we are basing everything on what we talk about a lot. The last thing we saw and the last thing we saw was Brady looking like he was thirty one and not forty one and the patriots plane enough deepens and beating the hot kid and the hot team, and it has taken way more weight on Mitch than what we saw from the Rams for most of the season. Until they hit the little slump after fifty four fifty one against the chiefs. It would have been interesting had it been the chiefs in the Rams because then it would have been an ultimate page Turner for the NFL. I it's it's not I don't think there's a big favourite in this game. I don't to me the sides, look, even and we always come back to this. The question is going to be to me how Jared Goff in particular in plays this game. And if he is up to the circumstances of his first Super Bowl that was one of the storylines that did come out this week. And when I was reading and Williams addressing this topic and setting it up and saying we're not worried about this kid, there's something he's just got an eerie calm about them. And that's think. It won't be the stage won't be too big for him. And they are on record saying that. But it is certainly an issue with. I mean, I mean, obviously, the obvious contracting things here the sixty six coaching to thirty three. Oh, coach the forty-one well quarterback in the twenty four year old quarterback. I mean, that's obviously that's been the experience thing versus the thing in both in both cases, you know, touch upon if we do you think there would have been definitely more interest. If this game were saints and chiefs and just think how close we came to it being that in both Dame's throat games on the same day that those games could easily have the the whole easily have been reversed. Mitch I think Mahomes would've brought a lot of cachet to this game. I mean to me the patriots this is I'd because it's only one team that keeps coming back the patriots being here. Churns this kind of indicates warriors four, okay? There is a been there done that feeling to that. And I do think that there would have been a more. Interest. Like, I I was talking about Kostas about this yesterday. And I said to him. I was surprised that Red Sox dodgers didn't do a bigger number. And he said, well, I think it would have done a bigger number. If the whole thing had gone back to Fenway for game six and seven, okay. Well, we've gone back to Fenway now with the patriots. And it will. I mean, the rating will be the rating on Sunday Super Bowls American ritual. But I'm not I don't I I think all that holds true for the week. I think it's one of the reasons you're not seeing the big build up feeling this week because how many feature stories are you going to do on Bill Belichick or Tom Brady? It's ball. John. And the yeah. So and let's face it. The feature story days are behind us..

"I just never really found out the answer but idea, but you know, Roger sat there, and then I started the question again and. The question. I started was something to do with the draft. How the players association was threatening players to not show up. Yeah. Please don't door telling them don't show up for the draft. Even though they you know, you're not drafted yet. You're not in the league the union. So I wanted to ask him his thoughts on that. So I started that off that way. And then a few minutes into the question and answer ask the question again. And he gave me the answer again. The second time. I don't remember exactly was good deliver your same. But it was the I asked the question a good talk. But I didn't I didn't do it. I so I got an Email later on in the day from Roger Goodell saying, hey, I noticed when we started the interview again, you didn't ask the first question. I again, and I hope that's not because I started my answer with. Wow, that's an interesting. I question you should know that you should have every opportunity and feel free to ask me any question you want anytime. That's a fact I really thought this story was ending with Roger being protected by people. But instead it's the complete east like I just wanna make sure that when you didn't ask it again for me. It's not that hope he didn't take what I said is to be critical of anything. That's a fact that happened. That's insane to think about because you would think if you're like a state. Channel. Right. Well, I know you look it look, Pat where you're not at the NFL network. We are not going to go on a deep dive of what's going on in locker rooms. Okay. But we are free to talk about subjects like this incredible. Even with billions of dollars on the line. We are free to talk about like, I remember when we first started Thursday night football. You know, the question was when we were doing it. You know, what's it gonna be like can they criticize the coaches the referees? Can they call a game? Like the way that it should be called. And I remember, you know, I wanted to do the games I wanted to and what you're very good at it. I said. I've said on this show that you did very very I appreciate that. I've been waiting pretty much my whole damn life to do it. I've excited. Oh is like shot out of a cannon and wanted to make sure I got everything right? Because as you know, one best way to absolutely destroy your credibility in span of about three and a half hours is to botch. Calling a football game. There's a chance. Yeah. There are the ways to do it. I'm just talking about professionally we live in now to there isn't a drastic overreaction normally. So. That's why you shouldn't. She should maybe hover your thumb over the the send button before actually pressing down. Anyway. Long story short is I wanted to call games and Steve Bornstein who's running the network at the time. He says to me goes just not not not a chance. You haven't done it before we need you in the studio. That's what we're going to do. And plus, you know, we need to make sure that we hire the right guy in case anybody's wondering if we're going to do the right thing and calling the games. So they hired Bryant Gumbel coming out of the box who had just absolutely destroyed gene Upshaw on real sports for being like a tool of the NFL Tagliabue's in the NFL. So for the NFL network to come out and hire that guy with Chris Collins worth that was the way to communicate to everybody that we are understanding that in order for us to be successful..

"Same you. That's Andre Agassi hall of Famer at Agassi on Instagram. Got a little confused. I thought it had to do Thursday into Friday. They actually had to stop it the the call, the match, but they thought, no almost went four hours. I remember those. You worked for USA. I worked for CBS a longtime to anything. Maybe s erica's most watch network. I remember doing that. Those things used to go forever. And then I had to do the the recap show right on on CBS. After Letterman before Kilborn. Two thousand three, four and five or the days I used to do that before the NFL networks started having, you know, Sunday shows and Thursday night football. So they let me because I did the two thousand three one before the NFL network started. I was called on my honeymoon by CBS asking me because I was a free agent after, yes, PIN left what I do the late night choice it absolutely. And the NFL network hard meet the same time. So the next two years I would take the first two, you know, last week of August first week of September off to do the US open until Steve Bornstein than the head of the NFL network, even guy who Stevie who I always told him his smart enough to have hired me twice at ESPN and the NFL network with his his famous deep voice told me as as I went off to the open in two thousand five. He said to me, it's your farewell to flushing. Buddy boy, soak it in. Could you imagine if I took this week off from the NFL network right now with a chance I worked last night I'm working tomorrow. I'm doing a meeting Saturday for Sunday show that's four hours long. That's the equivalent that wouldn't happen and you my farewell to flush him, but Roddick won his only one there to that while I was there. One is only one. I'm good luck Trump. Can I tell you there too? That's true. I just don't remember you while we didn't actually meet. We didn't. Now you're came up big time. You were big time back. That's absurd. I was, but I served that. That'd be the reason why didn't meet you? I was busy hanging out with Michael Vartan. There you go. Really? Oh yeah. The actor, Michael Varnedoe. Sorry, Michael, clan different. Same guy was on Elliot's when we kind of the Michael barking when we come back the debut of a new segment that I hope you will enjoy.

"So hit me with that at midnight out the blue KOMO today's prior, it was ax is anything if it is just let me know because the rumors coming up a fill, like I wouldn't treat it with what I fight for nine years with the respect that I thought I deserve by just giving me the say. So of let me know something's going on or a chance. That's all I wanted been tough at his rollercoaster up and down to Shana Gak made it to, you know, changing. You know, I will say this to Dhamar Rosen who I've never met. Okay. And of heard great things about, and I'm sure he will consider these unsolicited red cents two cents. And I again, can't really compare much other than that. I once left an organization in a shocking manner that I was so familiar with and was my first organization and was what I associated my entire person. You know, persona in my entire meant mental state was melted with the SPN, right? And we parted ways and it was a shock to me too. I was told a lot of things that turned out to not be true and I went to another spot and it took me a long while to get over it to this day. I'm still waiting for my SPN rotation. Sixteen years. But. After a while I realized, okay. Yeah, so they didn't. They didn't want me around anymore and they weren't straight with me. And you know, they made an attempt to try and keep me around, but it all turned out to be empty and hollow and when it all came down to it, I wound up at starting something new, the NFL network. I won't call Steve Bornstein the Gregg Popovich of sports television, but that was so. And then I realized, you know what? The NFL NFL network. Never. They stand for wanted me to be the front guy, and that's worth a hell of a lot. And I'm out making something my own. So it all comes down with Tamar to Rosen. You were considered equal value for Kawhi Leonard, and when all comes down to it, you are playing for the San Antonio Spurs. Gregg, Popovich. And it's no state tax in Texas. We could go on and on. It's gonna take a while to get over it, but he's in a pretty damn good spot and hopefully he'll work through it. We come back, the pop culture news that you're talking about. I cannot wait today into this Dan Shaughnessy. Mr. q. of the QNA today with Bill Belichick at the top of our three new to podcast, one sports net baseball in chill, and the big twelve podcast..
