On S .I. media with Jimmy trainer. All right, training me now. S .I. media podcast regular. This periodic visit from the New York Post. And the March and Iran podcast is Andrew Marchand. Andrew, how are you? I'm good. How you doing, Jimmy? I'm good. I just realized I didn't put my phone on do not disturb. So I'm going to do that as we speak. And I'm going to let you know that I had a reader last week for my mailbag column on S .I. com, send it an email and said, when is Marchand's next appearance? So here we go. You made someone happy. Thank you that person. You made someone happy by coming on today. Let's start with this. A lot of media news to get to. Have you heard anything from ESPN or do you have any intel about how they feel about the last two weeks? How the staggered Monday Night Football doubleheader has gone? Because I've gotten a lot of emails and tweets about it. I'm sure you have as well. Yeah, I haven't talked to anybody specifically about how they feel about it. I mean, it is an NFL decision. ESPN is not in control of how those games are scheduled. Maybe they have some say, but it's the NFL decision. Yeah, I don't like it. Actually, in our podcast with John, it was my who's down this week. And the reason I just feel like I kind of said this on our part, it's too it's like having two quarterbacks and you have none. Right. And now if you have Joe Montana and Steve Young, there are two awesome games. Maybe that'd be better. But I just find my attention split and I don't know. And even at like halftime, I wouldn't recommend you go to the other game. Like I get what they're trying to do there, but it's not the NCAA tournament. And usually it's in like the second quarter, third quarter. So I personally don't think it really works that well. Now, I think they want to avoid I'm not positive, but I think they want to avoid that 10 30 late window. We used to get the Monday night and you get the, you know, crazy crew, either Chris Berman or Golick and Greenberg, you know, some of those crews back in the day. They probably don't want that late night game where, you know, you're losing that East Coast audience if it gets too late. But I don't know. I don't think this necessarily works. See, I like it. And what are the tweet? What are the tweeters say? Most people seem to not like it. Yeah. And why do you like it? The more the merrier. Give me as much football as possible. If I can watch eight games at one o 'clock on Sunday and four or five games at four o 'clock on Sunday, I can handle two games on Monday night. So, you know, I have two TVs. I put one game on each TV and two is better than one for me. That's just how I feel. Yeah, I've been a little running around these last couple of Mondays when this happened. So I may be a little bit, you know, my opinion skewed a little bit by that. It hasn't just been like I'm just chilling and watching, been running around a little bit. So perhaps that's, you know, maybe I could be swayed. I will say, you know, I don't know. This is a whole separate discussion. I would love to know your take on this, but I always feel like it's a little tough sometimes to criticize people in this podcast when I also have to book this podcast. So I try to be careful. Yeah, I notice you're very soft. That's what you're trying to say. Sometimes. So I'm sure this guy will never come on again, but they gotta do better than Chris Fowler on the secondary game. Just not, it's just not working. Chris is not a great play -by -player. Right. He was a great host, studio host. Can I say one thing? Yeah. He's on tremendous tennis. Like I watch the U .S. Open every single day. I think he's great on tennis. It's football where it's just something feels off. Well, tennis is also slower. And like you look at people who do really well at the slower sports. Like, you know, Jim Nantz is better than Chris Fowler, but Nantz is really his best thing is golf. And I think he's an OK NFL play -by -player. And at the end of his college basketball run, he was definitely, I don't know, OK is probably, you know, he was OK there as well. And I think if you look at Fowler and his history, now he's been doing play -by -play for a while now. And he has gotten better. Like when he first started on the number one crew, I mean, if I were covering it then, that would not, I probably would not have been that kind. Because he has gotten better, but it's not really good enough. And he's the rare case, I think with Herb Street, that Herb Street makes him better. Usually it's the play -by -player who makes the analyst better. And yeah, I think you're right. And I also think, you know, in fairness to Fowler, you know, ESPN put that crew together. They replaced Levy there and they had a year or two under their belt together as a team. And, you know, not the full team, but him and Riddick, Levy and Riddick, and then Jadolowski. And I think they kind of don't, they underestimate chemistry. It takes time to build it up. And so I think that hurts. And he just, he's a college guy too. It's hard just to come into the NFL. I know he, you know, he's talked how hard his schedule is with the U .S. Open. And then, you know, doing a game a couple days later. And then doing a college. And so, you know, that's hard. And so, yeah, he's not a tremendous play -by -player. To me, this is just me, it felt like when ESPN gave him that gig, it was more about ESPN trying to impress the NFL. Like, look, we have our number one college game. Like you had said earlier, the secondary Monday night game for years was, you know, Golic and Greenberg and Chris Berman with a cast of character. Rich Ryan did it one year. I think this is ESPN trying to say to the NFL, because now they have a Super Bowl and they have this big contract. And, you know, they brought in Buck and Aikman. Like, we're serious, we're going to take our, regardless of what you think about Fowler, he's their lead college guy. So, I feel like they're like, oh, look at us, we're putting the lead when, you know, that. Yeah, I think they screwed up and I think they know they screwed up. I think that they ended up shifting who was in charge of the NFL. It was Stephanie Drewley. And they moved her off the NFL after, you know, I think that didn't help her cause in terms of staying on the NFL. I think they were satisfied with Levy. He was a good guy, which they value. After they brought in Joe Buck, he was very gracious. You know, Levy's a very good hockey guy, especially studio host. I thought he could have, you know, could have been the pregame show on Monday Night Football. He's in, again, not their, in my opinion, they had other people who are better play -by -players for football, but it was good. Like, so, yeah, I don't think it was to impress the NFL. They got Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. They got the Mannings. I mean, they spend, they're spending 50, 60 million dollars a year on their booths. Like, I don't think the second team booth is gonna, you know. If anything, I think it was, there was a thought before Buck and Aikman that Fallon and Herb Street might get the NFL. Might get Monday Night Football. Might get the potential Super Bowl. And then this is kind of a carrot since they didn't get it. But I'd argue, and I even talked to Chris Fowler about this. So, I don't know if this is the case. I just don't know if, I mean, Chris Fowler does the national championship. He does the biggest college game every week for Disney. I can't, like, I get it. Maybe he wanted to do NFL. But is this really gonna satisfy him because you're doing a second game, which generally aren't that great? I don't, I don't see that long -term, personally. And I think also, strategically, if I'm ESPN, I'm putting a young play -by -player. Now, Joe Buck, we both think it's great. Like, he and Ian Eagle are the best two play -by -players going right now. And, um, but, Joe Buck's contract's up in a couple of years. If I'm ESPN, and I, you know, I think they'll probably re -sign Joe Buck, and they should. That said, he makes a lot of money. And, you know, I would be saying, who can I develop? What young guy can I develop? So when I go into that negotiation, I really have somebody who's on the rise. And I can say, hey, look, you don't want this, you know, the 15 million a year? Then we'll go here, you know? But if you start demanding, I'm not saying this is going to happen, but, demanding even more and more money, I'd want an option. I don't think they've created an option. They've actually put somebody in that spot who they've already said they'd rather spend 15 million dollars on Joe Buck than have Chris Fowler as the lead play -by -player. So, I just think negotiation -wise, and strategically, in terms of saving money, it wasn't a great decision. Yeah. I don't understand the insistence on the three -person booth, either. They had Fowler, Greasy, and Riddick. Excuse me, excuse me. Levy, Riddick, Greasy. Now it's Fowler or Lofsky, Riddick. To me, that, and, Fowler's used to a two -person booth with Herb Street. They have Buck and Aikman, which is a two -person booth. I don't understand the insistence on the three -person booth. It's just, for football, it just, I don't get it, but, that's just my - It complicates, it over -complicates it. Yeah. And like you said, chemistry. I think it's much harder to develop a chemistry with three. I mean, you know, the local Mets situation is different with Gary Cohn, Ron Darl - Is it in baseball, is it football? What three men, can you name - I mean, I guess back in the old Monday Night Football days, there were three men booths that had - Yeah, Collinsworth and Aikman with Buck that one year. Yeah, one year it lasted, you know. So, I don't know. But, there's no more staggered double -headers. The next one is week 14, and both games will start at 8 -15. I think that's the one that's going to piss a lot of people off. But, that's a long way down the road. You got the two TVs. Yeah. I asked you if ESPN, how they feel about Monday Night Football. Anything you've heard about how they feel about their new partnership with Pat McAfee. I mean, it's early, but they're bullish on it. I mean, they've kind of handed the keys to the network to McAfee. I mean, you can't - it's kind of like Stephen A. now. You can't really turn on ESPN almost every day except basically Sunday without seeing Pat. And so, you know, I think initially the ratings weren't that good. I think they got a little better in terms of the TV ratings. I think that kind of makes some sense because if you think about it, he was a YouTube show. Yeah, he's got to play for TV. Yeah, and he's still a YouTube show. Well, it is a play for TV because they think that they had Max in there before. They think that the ratings will be high enough that they'll be able to charge more for the ad rates. I guarantee you the money they'll make off of McAfee on social media and YouTube will be 8 billion times more than the money they made off Max Kellerman on social media. Oh, 100%. No, you're right. No, you're right. There's no doubt about that. And look, they want to get, I will say this, like, does it work? I think a lot of times when companies make big moves, you know, big time moves, a lot of times they make those moves when the person's kind of towards the end, you know, they got McAfee on the rise. Like, you know, we, you know, you and I have been aware of McAfee for years now, but he's really like, you know, here, I don't think he's at the plateau, you know, where most people go up and then they plateau and then they go down. He's at, he's still, I think, going up and then maybe the plateau is on the horizon and you can plateau for 20, 25 years if you have the right attitude and personality and just have the right act. So that's where I think that makes a lot of sense as a bet because it's not, I'll hit one close to home, Rick Riley leaving ESPN. I mean, leaving SI for ESPN where, you know, Rick Riley is one of the great columnist ever, but at that point, you know, whatever, maybe it was the internet, I don't know exactly. It just didn't really work as well at ESPN as it did at SI. And so I just think they've done that and that's kind of, you know, teams do that in sports and I think sometimes networks do that. And so I feel like signing McAfee in his mid -30s is kind of like signing a baseball free agent who's in his mid -20s and I think that's what you want to do as opposed to getting a, signing a 35 -year -old and, you know, thinking they can still play, you know, like, I don't know, like a Josh Donaldson, maybe trading for someone like that, Jimmy. You see what I did there? I don't need reminders of the horrific Yankee season. I just did that on purpose. I don't need that. My head was going, who am I going to say? All right, yeah, Josh Donaldson, but it was a treat. Just a, yeah, you want me to say Brian Cashman should be fired. It's amazing too, they replay that. I didn't know this was going to be the situation going into it, but they replay the show as soon as it's over, I think, on ESPN 2 and then they replay it at night on maybe ESPN News or one of their, what you said about if you're going to put on one of the ESPNs at any point in the day, you're going to see Pat McAfee. Yeah. So that's good for him. Like I, you know, people feel like - But I also think, ESPN has to be, they have Aaron Rodgers on their air every week. It's a news making thing that's on their air every week. They've got Nick, he's got Nick Saban on his show every week. Yeah. That's a news making thing every week. I would think ESPN has to be, forget the numbers because the numbers, I think, will be there. It's still a new thing. You have, the ESPN audience is older, the McAfee audience is younger, it might take some, but I would think ESPN just on the brand and the cachet of that show has to be thrilled. I think so. I mean, but if you talk, like I have, again, I'll probably make some calls here in the near future, but so I haven't talked specifically with anybody about that. But generally speaking, when these things first start, everyone loves it. So then we'll see. Again, I'm not saying, I could see it either way. Like, you know, McAfee has not really stayed at any of these, throughout any of these contracts he's had. So that's something to watch. Maybe this one he does, but that hasn't been the case previously. So that is something. I think the fact that he's on game day has to help the relationship there a little bit with ESPN. Here's the thing about McAfee. If you're managing him, in my opinion, and it's like Casey Jones, the former coach of the Celtics, was known for just throwing out the ball and telling McHale, Parrish, and Bird to go play, Dennis Johnson. At least that's how I remember as a kid. That was his reputation. And I think McAfee is sort of like that. Just give him the ball, let him do his thing. He's not looking to, you know, for some strategy. Let's, you know, triangle offense. He's not looking for that. He's looking for, let me do my thing. I know what I'm doing. And the thing about McAfee is he's very smart. Like, I know he plays this, like, he's not smart thing. It works very hard. He works hard and he's very smart. He's very savvy. He acts as if, like, you know, maybe he's, you know, just a dumb jock. But he understands the media business very well. We need, we need to discuss the Kelsey Taylor Swift thing because I actually think it's a legitimate media story. If Fox is going to get these increase in their demographics of the female audience, the young people, the NFL has gone all in on this thing. I mean, they changed their Twitter header to, like, a Taylor Swift thing. They're putting out Travis Kelsey Swiftiest plays on their social media. He's gained, I guess, a ton of followers, the jersey sale. Let me start with this. How did you think Fox handled it on Sunday when she was in the stadium? Do you think they overdid it? Do you think the fact that they had an unwatchable game takes them off the hook? What was your take on the Chiefs -Bears on Sunday when she was there? I think the second part, and I wouldn't take them off the hook, but I think the second part, you have an unwatchable game that you had to switch most of the country out of because it was so non -competitive, that you have Taylor Swift there, it's a big deal. And, you know, there's a lot of Taylor Swift fans who are football fans, a lot of non -Taylor Swift fans who weren't watching that game, but it was a talking point, right? Like, I saw Taylor Swift in the concert this summer, but that was kind of - Look at you! Yeah, how do you like that? Look at you! You couldn't even get tickets. Big shot. Where'd you get tickets? My daughter's friend just won the lottery. No shenanigans. Oh, really? Tickets were $235 each, which is still a lot of money, but not, like, $1 ,000. And it was just kind of happenstance, how I ended up going. I was going to say, if your daughter's friend got tickets, how did you end up at the era's tour? I mean - Were you, like - It's just a long drive to get to the metal lands, didn't want them driving back. They're older, they can drive, but at, you know, one o 'clock in the morning from Taylor Swift, so - But you were in MetLife and watched the show. Yes. Friendship bracelets? Well, you want to know something funny? This is a good one. So, my daughter's friend said to me, do you want a - do you want a jewel? And I'm like, no, no, no, I'm okay. Thinking she's saying a jewel, like a jewel, smoke. But she was saying, like, to, like, get bedazzled, a little jewel, which I would have taken. So later, I was like, I told my daughter, I said, but your friend, she said she asked me if I wanted a jewel. She's like, no, no, she didn't say you wanted a jewel. She said, do you want a - a jewel to put some ju - you know. Right. I didn't have any bracelets, but I was into - I liked Taylor Swift. I wouldn't go again. I kind of felt bad being there, because there's people who give their left arm to be there. But it was - look, she is an unbelievable performer. I mean, it was - you could - first of all, I liked some of her songs. Secondly, the level of performance. It was just, you know, it was an A+. I mean, that - that - and that is something, even if you didn't like her music, you can appreciate it. And also, I appreciate it if I had to go to the bathroom. Easy pass right in there. No one. Right. No one's leaving their seat except for people like you who aren't in it. Yeah, and especially, yeah, and more skewed women.

"Stevia. Yum. Back to throw. In trouble, he's gonna be psych no gets away. He runs gets away again, goes to the 40. Gets away again. That's back in the 30 to the 20 the 50 the can. He died touchdown 49. I love talking to Steve Young. Steve Young has actually had a longer career in finance and private equity than he did in the NFL. Stop and think about that for a moment. It's amazing. Recently, he was actually in New York. He was ringing the opening bell on the NASDAQ trading floor with mo vela. This is a tech company that he's invested in. We got a chance to talk with young while he was here about some of the top NFL headlines, but the conversation started with him talking to us about lavella, which creates software and hardware for digital movement. Our colleague Bloomberg sports contributor Dan Schwartzman joined us for the conversation. Take a listen. Think about digitization of movement. They put the suit on and they can make it and they usually have to have a very set circumstances to get them the digitized movement. I put the suit on and I ran around. I threw the ball and they put the avatar of me throwing the ball and I said to myself, that's me. And that's what's really cool about it. It captures your movement. And I think it's going to have something to do with mobile is going to you don't mention the movies in their entertainment emerging entertainment. That's happening. That's their core business. You talk about what could happen out in the future. Injury prevention. They show me a nicely, they could send to somebody. They show the movement and it can see that your movement is going to be you're going to have a new problem in ten years. And it's prevention. So there's all these other applications that are kind of cool. So anyway, we ring the bell. First time for me, I was fired up. Is this a metaverse play? Yeah. Absolutely. He was in touch with his digital self. Exactly. But think about it. I'm excited. What I'm going to do is I'm going to get my buddy Jerry Rice. I mean, at the forty-niners, we're all going to get in the suit and we'll digitize their movement. We'll get to that. We'll get debo. We'll get these guys. And then they'll see themselves and the avatar of them. And when you can see where you can see yourself and your movement in the metaverse, that's where it's kind of gets cool. It's immortal. Your movement is now immortalized and that's what's fun. Steve had asked because I will never ring the bell unless Michael Bloomberg takes me up with him one day. When I watch it, I'm always amused because everybody's got a smile good day or bad day. Everybody's got a smile

"Also there's a whiteboard in the room, and they're going to talk X's and O's. So they get up there. And Steve mariucci is drawing up a play that he used to run when he was coaching San Francisco forty-niners. He's like, all right, this guy over here, this is Jerry Rice, and this is TO. And this is JJ stokes. This was a zebra. You know what? I would be Jerry Rice. Ever heard Jerry Rice? Yeah, the best, okay? Zebra left. We put him in motion to a stack over here. He's got Steve Young, under center. It's got a 6 word cadence that I don't even remember because it was too long. So that is Tripp's right. Y deep. Zebra left 74 zebra bake. Got it? So then they sit down, continue the conversation, and then here comes the curve ball. And Steve says to Anthony, all right. You remember my play? No, get on that board. Show me. I'll get by this side of the defense. Or you want to run the sacral. As you would call it. Or is he going? We would call it as a divide, bro I know you better someone divide the field aim for the pilot. And you want to occupy this backside safety. This is the background as you would call it. You know, this has been this corner around Louisiana. And what's the protection? 70 four miles per max. Not bad. He draws up the formation, everything's perfect. He did mess up in one regard. He had Steve Young in the shotgun rather than under center because duh, it's 2023, and no one's under center. That's the kind of thing they do in those interviews. Not every team, but a lot of teams. So if he handled that the way he handled those meetings, then I have no doubt that he governed himself pretty well. Give me the before and after because heading into the combine. There are four names that every NFL fan is thinking about at the top of the draft when it comes to quarterbacks. And that's Bryce young out of Alabama. CJ strut out of Ohio State will levis out of Kentucky and Anthony Richardson. And so before the combine, what order did you have them? And after it, where do you think it stands now? So these things are always in the eye of the beholder, but I would say this. I think that most people would have had him forth, I think the question initially at the very end of the college season, the question was, okay, is he a first round pick? A ball face to keep it alive. He's got a man alone in the back of the end zone. Are you kidding me? And then it became, all right, well how far can he go? And that's where we are now. It's not a matter of is he a first round pick, or not even a matter of like, oh, will he make it past the middle of the first round? Now the question is like, all right, is this guy getting out of the top ten? And the answer very much is almost positively no. The fact of the matter is, he played on a Florida team that everyone you talked to agrees was not flush with talent on offense. What if you can get him in the right situation with the right supporting cast? Write coach. That is the tantalizing part for teams to consider. Look, there is so much need and there is so much I think in recent years, much more open mindedness as I talked about earlier for these dual threat quarterbacks because he is very much a dual threat, okay? A guy running a four, four, three, 40 yard dash. The perception and the view of those quarterbacks has undoubtedly changed. Lessons have been learned. Lamar Jackson barely made it into the first round. Jalen hurts did not make it into the first round. Where would they be drafted today? Maybe the number one overall pick?

"On the eagles tonight, Sal, will people remember this game from mahomes? Or for a garbage call at the end? I hope they remembered from a home. And I had the chiefs, by the way, getting a point and a half, my God. I just think it's weird that we're at a place where we can't even believe them. Like, all right, did we go with the most courageous miraculous comeback of all time for a person who should have his leg amputated? Or is this a fake injury? And now I'm hearing more fake injury than anything else. Now he's cowboy bob Orton all of a sudden with the arm, but the cast that was on for a three years too long. You know, I was watching sports center after. And mahomes did a stand up interview with Chris Berman and Steve Young and booger and was just standing on the set for 5 minutes. Casually talked about the game. And I'm like, I thought his ankle was bet 5 different ways. What's going on? And sprinted sprinted to go to Berman, right? He was like, oh, he's over there. All right, I'll get there in under three and a half seconds. Maybe this will lead to a new, I don't know, football philosophy where teams will pretend they're guys hurt more than it is or whatever it works. It was one of the reasons people were picking the eagles this week was I have a home. You can't really move. Hit the key point of this game. What did he scramble for 30 yards? How long was that? And like at some point, when you're running that fast and that far, whenever you come down, that's it, man. It's gonna hurt. It's gonna sting like, unless they carry you into the end zone. You're in trouble, but that was when I thought, oh, come on, he got right up. He shook it off. It says it is a weird thing, but I mean, he won MVPs plus one 30. We're gonna give it to him anyway. He had under 200 yards passing, right? But the three touchdowns and just, I guess, by the fact just being in there and everything else, he deserves it. He was awesome. After he heard his ankle, he went 13 for 14 for 92 yards and two TVs. We could talk about the bad rep stuff, but I think we should talk about my homes, and I think we should talk about how
Rumsfeld's Rules: Slow Down the Process
"Football a lot here on the podcast. But the greats, so to speak, the bradys, the Aaron Rodgers, going back to Roger Staubach, Fran tarkin and Steve Young, you just name the greats of quarterback. They slow the game down. The other players do this as well. Defensive backs, you know, in baseball, they slow the game down. A hitter can slow the game down to where he sees the ball coming at him as if it's almost twice its size instead of the baseball that it is. And really this is sort of what he's talking about here. First climb so you can get a look, then conserve. Slow it down if you can. Slow down the process, quit looking to always make a quick decision. Snap decisions are not the best all the time. And so sometimes you need to conserve that energy a little bit. Make it, you know, if you hang out and if you don't have to make a decision right now, then climb above it, start looking around, bring in ideas, look at the horizon and then start slowing it down. Slow the world down.

"So if you do this for a couple years and at the age of 40 or 41, you want to return, you could still write your ticket to any team you want, but he said, yeah, but it won't be this team. Like, I don't want to coach the Jaguars. I don't want to coach the browns. I want to coach the rams and staffords his guy. Like if Stafford wasn't there, totally different story. Then again, if Stanford wasn't there, they probably don't win the Super Bowl and these offers aren't coming in. Yeah. You said he had offers from multiple networks. I thought it was just Amazon. I don't know if there was actually a formal offer. I know there were conversations, at least informally, that were being put toward Sean's guys, not towards him proactively like, hey, raising my flag who wants to hear it. But I know that there were at least phone calls from multiple places saying what's his interest level. I don't know. If he would have left, I mean, it would have been strictly a money thing, right? Because or is he one of these guys that's trying to say he's burnt out already a little bit? No, not burning. It would be more like so young. I have interests that go beyond just this. I feel like I want to do it all. And that's what it would be. He worked for ESPN a couple super bowls ago with like Susie Colbert and I want to say like Steve Young and Lewis Riddick and it was like on a Sunday, I didn't watch. It was like a Sunday of Super Bowl Sunday. And you know, he called me afterwards. He was like, can you critique what I did? I didn't watch him. And he's like, can you get a clip of him? I don't know where the clip exists. And then we did our flying coach podcast last year, and after we would do two hour interview with Kyle Shanahan or Arthur Smith, he would want me in Simmons to be like giving him pointers. So he constantly is just one of these guys that's always going and wants to be better. If he was to go into broadcasting, he would want to be the best broadcaster to ever live and want to emulate John Madden and be better. You know, like it's not enough to just, all right, I got it. Collins works great. Romo does his thing. He'd want like, so he'd have to be all in, and I don't think he was ready to put football behind him. It would have been, I would have been blown away if he left.

cliche and then we bring on the butcher from gallatin Tennessee and he's talking about the sale in his meat market No This guy you don't need an introduction All I need to say is he's won the Super Bowl two times for the New York Giants He is Eli Manning Eli thank you so much sir for joining us on the Bloomberg business of sports Yeah sure Thanks Thanks so much for having me I'm excited to be on You took time out to join brand velocity partners Tell us all about that Yes So it's a private equity company I got to know Brandon velocity partners through an investment in a company called barbecue guys In 2020 And so during that time recently retired and I always had an interest in business and wanted to learn a little bit more which field I might want to be kind of possibly get into and just see if there's interest in there or something I would want to work hard work at and learn more about And so just to know the team there DVP and kind of got to watch everything through barbecue guys Going through the process and we're buying them and trying to grow that company through marketing and so it's just very interested in it and they were great and so eventually after kind of sit in on other meetings and other calls and they thought we'd make a great team So they came a partner there and it's been fun just trying to I think that could be helpful in expanding their existing relationships And I love the fact that they try to grow companies through marketing execution They have a marketing background and also they invest in the employees and they have a program called share the gains We're 10% of the carry the interest from BVP goes to the employees and not the upper management But kind of the rest of the employees And so I just made sense to me from the marketing standpoints but I majored in college doing commercials I mean part of marketing during my NFL career and then also just an emphasis on the employees when you have a company or a related to football when you have when you win a championship It's not just the players to get the ring but the people need training room that people in the equipment room the people in the film room they all get a ring also They all get to say we want to championship and I think that's what you want in a company Everybody feels like they're part of the overall goal and the overall success of a company when it does well I think it's so interesting because we talked to a lot of pro athletes former pro athletes celebrities and we knew that most of you would end up doing something with I don't know crypto think Aaron Rodgers Odell Beckham junior a spac a rod certainly or private equity Steve Young and now you What's notable And you mentioned this is that you are a full time partner of BVP You're not in a visor you're not a consultant So describe what your day to today looks like This will be your full-time day job and Manning cast becomes kind of your part time job doesn't it Well I think the good thing about the man in cash and so far with BVP is that it is kind of remote right now You're not traveling all over the world with Manning cast I do it from my house I watch kind of watch film on my own just throughout the week And unless unless BVS to be for me to jump on a call from 8 15 to 1130 at night on ten Mondays out of the year that's kind of my time but I can't make that call And I think they know that And so I think this is not an endorsement I am on calls with meetings We're on chats rolling calls as a group of one calls that other companies learning about hearing their stories talking to CEOs and presidents in discussing with DVP whether this looks like a good fit if we think we could grow the company And so obviously right now it's a big learning curve for me I think it's when they're talking about earnings that are talking about EBITDA and understanding all these things So there's still a lot for me to learn from that aspect I think talking about the marketing potential of companies makes a little bit more sense to me and I tend to have more to add on that on that side of it just because I've been in that world a little bit longer But it's all the process of kind of learning this new language learning this new playbook and I'm excited about that and always kind of asking for tasks because what's the best way to get up to speed on everything that they're doing and ask what I take a lot of notes just like I was in football take long notes ask a lot of questions and the whole team I think that's why I chose maybe a smaller private equity just because the guys you kind of know who you can ask certain questions to the team has been so great at this kind of teaching me answering my questions give me up to speed and want to get me up and up and going to help the company Hey Eli it's Michael lynch up in Boston with you jumping aboard here with a BVP Well most of your targets now be sports related or is it any field It's any field It's really more of the it's mostly consumer facing companies so far and we're looking at companies at least 10 million in EBITDA But I think obviously the sports the sports field definitely resonates with me And you see a lot of that a lot of movement right now in the sports world but in the which is kind of new in the franchise of companies and private equity linking together and you see it in basketball and baseball and soccer and overseas and I obviously have not happened in football on the NFL yet not allowed but it's I think obviously with the valuation of these companies getting so high it's hard but it's hard for an individual buyer to come in and buy a whole franchise and the costs are so much and these owners can sell little portions of it to get capital to help build a new indoor facility or buy the land around stadiums to build better or better kind of themes and amusement for the fans make it a better game day experience for the people and invest in their own franchise So it's an interesting field that will definitely pursue and be a part of that in the franchise world and just in the general sports business as well Up next on the show stay tuned for more of our conversation with Eli Manning and we'll dive.

"And how I can give them this goes back this equity idea and what Brian did a couple of years ago it's really it's a flowering effect that even as I speak about it I know we've got to do a better job of this It's a great way to spread that sense of accomplishment But what happens for a lot of people who have started things and clotted out they're like look I did this I went through the pain I had to I have the scars And over my dead body I'm going to start handing out equity And that's the challenge that I see us all have and how we have to kind of think about paying it forward And so that's an interesting Psychological profile that you have to kind of work through and try to figure out how to do that better But I guess that's why I'm willing to come on and talk about integrity because last thing I want to do is go look at us We're really cool Look what we're doing I really am encouraged by to do this because I want people to hear the story I wanted to model You know what I mean I want people to say you know what I own a business And I can start to figure that out I think that's a great idea That's more I'm grateful for your platform to do this because that's what I want to want to do is to tell people about it not to pat ourselves on the back but to show that it might be something to think about for your own business Steve Young holy Doritos we just talked with Steve Young Chairman of the board of integrity marketing group and Hall of Fame quarterback many years with the forty-niners I am just delighted to talk with you and Scarlett and I'm the envy of my family right now because I'm married to family of die hard forty-niners fans So tell them I give them a hug for me Oh I will You too And thanks for the thanks for the opening and talk about this You can see I have some passion around it and I want to pay it forward for Brian Adams having the idea to do it He's the guy that the CEO of integrity that did it but I appreciate the platform to kind of talk this out Steve Young my goodness we could have gone another hour with Steve Young Just listen to this We did And you were exactly right And hear that pride when he's talking about his business and being an entrepreneur And I just think that's really special And I salute anybody who does that because I don't know one of I would have the brains or the guts to do it And Steve Young and many people out there in America do Scarlett my hat to him I feel like he should be a spokesperson or not I'm a spokesperson Maybe an ambassador for private equity because looking at his non football biography he's got a lot of experience with private equity He cofounded this middle market PE firm with John Huntsman the former ambassador and Robert gay One of the firm's investments is integrity marketing which he serves as chairman for and integrity just got a $1.2 billion investment from another PE firm silver Lake which is a tech focus firm There's a lot of misunderstanding about PE and how they buy up companies and cut costs and fire workers People get a lot of things wrong about pea ownership I feel like Steve Young would be the perfect person to explain how this works and how it can work better for employees Not always but often.

"Michael Barr I'm scarlet fu And I'm Mike lynch Today we are speaking with Steve Young He is the chairman of the board of integrity marketing group and yeah he's a Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young thank you so much for joining us on this show We really do appreciate it You good I pleasure to be with you guys and money in sports It's one of the reasons why I enjoy being on Monday night countdown with ESPN is to talk about some of the more interesting aspects of the business of sports and whether it's the negotiations with the referees because they should they be partners on the field There's all kinds of cool questions So this is a fun topic for me Well thank you In fact we got to talk about speaking the money You're the chairman of the board of integrity Take us through what that is all about here Yes So I guess I should start with my own experience I left the full 2000 in transition I had done some investing with and it also started a business right towards the end of my career and I thought it'd be a lawyer I went to law school and got the opportunity to start a private equity firm sorts of capital out of Salt Lake City Utah and review geographically regionally based kind of $250 million fund and that's how I got transitioned to the private equity I've never been in privately longer than I played And so the second career is now the first career And started a business that's now called HCG in 2007 or three other partners Now we're in our fourth fund So part of our third fund about 5 or 6 years ago we went and visited an insurance marketing business that sits between the carriers and the agents And kind of senior life products out of Nebraska And we met with them and they had they took 30 meetings of private equity firms and we have a kind of a partnership Ben to how we approach the whole privately world where we're a 100% partnership investors We don't own a 100% of anything And so I think that resonated with Brian and Mike and Tom and so they chose us And we started off on a shortened up a little bit but so through now 5 or 6 years actually almost 7 Integrity has grown astronomically I mean how many times I'm going to say and like 50 times And it's been an amazing they've set up a shared services in help them set it up in Dallas That's where they're headquartered And now it's one of the biggest businesses in the country The fastest growing one of the fastest growing businesses And so Brian Adams who runs it I've been on the chairman since the beginning It came to me in a couple of years ago and said you know Steve I want to change how we look at kind of equity and business and I think world needs equity ownership and employees Employee ownership is where we should be And it shouldn't be something that's shows the maturity of a business when it's finally owned by the employees We should start it that way We should make it happen Just run a bell with me Do you think this model would work in the NFL I mean could football teams be also owned by employees as well Or are they better run as family held investments and family owned entities or publicly traded entities like the Green Bay Packers We could have a long conversation about multi generational ownership That has its own rigor that not only works But I think the idea would be that you would start to build at equity ownership And it wouldn't be interesting And look for the NFL on a four or $5 billion enterprise You don't have to be giving away And I didn't think about it that way I thought a partnership is kind of profit sharing as was the CVA did So you're going further than I was even thinking about which I just extending your metaphor Well not only that what I would extend is like a guy like Aaron Rodgers right He's a Green Bay Packers public held entity I am a shareholder of the Green Bay Packers by the way Someone in my family is Christmas gave me a share of the packers Like no you're not alone But if you think about Aaron Rodgers and he's going to have three or four more years of really obviously pretty productive stuff then every year why are we having this court Why is there any sense that Aaron Rodgers is unhappy in Green Bay He should be he should be in the room where it happens He should be in personnel They should figure out a way to make sure that he has a management position He should be thought of as an equity owner We should start to think about not just Aaron but every player but I mean your question is it's a really good one But for retention for Aaron Rodgers wants out of Green Bay we heard last year I want out And what like no I'm really afraid No There's going to be a deal that we can cut And when you talk about equity we're talking about a seat at the table when you talk about seed in the room where it happens in personnel That's what Aaron Rogers wants Why in the world would you not consider that So your question starts not provocative I think it's an interesting one because if everyone will ever play for the forty-niners for example had a piece of the team let's say it's small But a piece I think that's a heck of a thought I think that's the spirit of what we're I guess that's the spirit of what we're talking about here Steve soap Tom if the Patriots had that bottle like you have with Tom Brady still be a member of the New England papers A 100% Of course But again it's relationships are living breathing things and the longer you have to renew them constants like any marriage you have to renew it all the time because otherwise it does go stale and you I remember I remember the forty-niners we were talking about Ricky waters and oh he's a great running back that we had And we let him go to the Philadelphia Eagles because he's two chatter He's irritating personality No Ricky why does a great player Why are we because we allowed ourselves to do what you're just describing what happened in Boston and New England was that you're too close to it You're focused on the wrong things You're focused on not the relationship you're it's the hubris that gets involved in long-term especially successful relationships and one of the worst thing we ever did was let Ricky waters go from the forty-niners and cost us And I think.

"You know your position, and the competitive nature of the game is not going to determine whether or not you get to stay in the game, you know? So and the thing like patching moans when you got hit when he wobbled. I knew I actually said something t somebody I said, That's it for him and his wife. That's what If you do this stance, ingestion remember Tom Savage with the Houston, Texas in the end zone, But that was like that was the point. Where this shit if you're wobbling, If you're doing any of that, you're basically down for the game. They're not gonna put you back in in this case. On actually in that direction, speculated about television. Some doctors have been team doctors about this karate. Was it a hit by the crowded artery? Remember, he was hit across the neck, right? I think that's what it was. And that may have caused the stumbling and that we don't know that well, let's just say that I have been told he does not have a concussion. He's in the concussion protocol because the concussion protocol Is established by the head, neck and Spine Committee. So you know that's why you're hearing him that he's practicing that a very high level in part of the clearing the concussion protocol. Is going through a rigorous exercise. No kind of escalate each day that you see if you, you know, display any of the symptoms that you displayed when they took you out of that game and had to go into concussion protocol. Let me let me back you up on that more. We talked to Steve Young every week. Matter fact we talked to him yesterday, and he mentioned that, in his estimation, with his History and understanding of concussions. He thinks that it might have been something to where he he lost consciousness due to being tackled around the neck, not necessarily a concussion and Literal sense that we think of in terms of the brain. You know, uh, have to be someone graphic here slamming against slamming against his skull. So I think that that adds Credence to what you're talking about. Even Steve. Remember that? That will see you savage cash whenever you have it more. Do you want the only person thinking that so? Yeah, Chris Mortensen joining us.

"As of now, those things can change now. Those things can change. But we just go back to it. People are just joining us because this is on me. But I had totally kind of forgotten about the Mahomes foot problem. He was having like everybody focused on the head and deservedly I totally get that. But don't forget he was kind of hobbling around. They put him in that blue tent for a little while, Um, I thought it was a toe. But then, Schefter said they've classified into this foot. So whatever it is It was definitely a factor last week, one of the most underrated things that you know, just as fans. We just don't even consider the amount of pain. These guys, Aaron all the time. We're like, Hey, man, get out there and play gut it out. Do it, you know, and and who knows how affected he could be. No. I mean, the guy s Oh, yeah, Somethingto watch for sure, not just head butt foot and we are worried about the head. You know, it is something to take very seriously. Stuff. Wouldn't mouth always like to steal, they say, Polly. I learned this in the journalism world, they said a good writers borrow great writers. Steal sure something with musicians ST there. See, there's dumb and same thing with sound. So if Steve Young goes on with the afternoon, guys were still we will take. Yeah, I'll take a Steve Young Bali because you said You wanted to hear his thoughts on the concussion. Well, there's probably nobody more qualified to speak to it as a NFL Hall of Fame quarterback and Steve Young, you mean he went through everything that Holmes is dealing with right now. So if you missed it yesterday, like I did you get to hear Steve Young right now on with the afternoon boys about Mahomes concussion One thing that I learned through, you know, kind of my journeys is that there are two different injuries. There is a concussion to the brain bouncing against the skull that creates the damage right. We understand that as a concussion, right, but there's also a neck injury. It had the same dizziness has the same conscious consciousness issues like and I've found over the years. You know, it's kind of a specialist that I've seen last. You know, since I retired Firmly believe that mine were more neck related than kind of concussion brain related, which comes out the same way. The only reason I say that is not It was weird to watch what happened to him. It wasn't I didn't never see a blow. I know he hit the ground, but it was as if his neck was kind of talked around to look like a guy cook. Carl call order might be kind of Took his neck around and I s Oh, my My sense is that it's possible that we were talking about a neck injury that can create that loss of blood flow. And now you're groggy. You're like all the things you saw, which is so typical of a concussion as well. And so and then that's why to me. If it was a neck injury, it's going to be a lot easier to come back. No man, there's Stevenson details. You know, he's great and obviously comes from that experience. So it's a concern. You know what's worse, Worst case scenario would be. The guy goes out there and plays. He's not ready to or thinks he's ready to and then takes another shot because that's what I remember that specifically during all the Steve Young years when he was having that problem, or the recurring problem is that they would say, like, Well, Once you get one concussion, it becomes much easier to then get another and it just keeps snowball. Yeah, started. I don't want to see We wish the young man well, for sure. Now, here's another young cut from yesterday. Where says he has to go ahead and he takes my homes to win the game. If he plays take a listen. I know what Greg, I really trust him and he's right. Patrick is so confident I think that he gets low old a little bit like it's like, yeah, like soapy. He's in such a peaceful place that it's like, you know, he confined himself. You know, not being a sharp on de exact And I think that you know when you when you have so much success, some guys I think do takes they come in other heaven flow a little bit, but the idea that you're going to show up in a playoff game Patrick, No homes that he's got his. You know, eh, John? Get it. It's just You don't know what to defend. You don't know where to defend. You don't know what you don't know what you want to get started on. The only hope you have is that he is a little bit Lazier, and then he throws a couple of picks for no reason into somebody's chest for no, he conducive that. No question. He could do that now, Greg, Greg is right. A game the game but none Patrick Mahomes is is a is a good thing. Secondo effective follow tomorrow. Effective will see you gotta wait. You gotta tune in to see all these things will be considered when the final you know, verdicts are are decreed there. Among the many, many texts we get on the Cache Creek text line 4158 away 56 to 71 of our regulars Dom in San Mateo says they probably don't forget your tunes. Your Tom Brady better than Aaron Rodgers. 26 put in those He sent you those lyrics for two. Very good. Okay s so that's pretty good man. Listen, So it all comes down to Okay. I said this after they won the Super last year after we got over our pain and suffering, which was brutal. Got over my pain and suffering. But speak for yourself. 10 Point lead in the 10 Point lead in the fourth quarter. Dude, you got the game. You gotta win. You gotta close that us out. Oh, God, You're 10 Point lead against the Mahomes. Chief. I'm telling you who Nobody has a 10 point lead against the Mahomes Chiefs in the fourth quarter. Nobody does that It was that 13 15. You know what I mean? Yeah, I scored a touchdown, right? Not to mention the fact that they pulled. Mickey boasted to the ground on pretty much every snap of the game with no flags. But that's fine, too. They were holding that team every play. But but, I mean, they held that team and check for 3.5 quarters and cheap feel like Yeah, I guess what there's still more time left. Don't forget. They came back from double digits down in every single one of their playoff games last year, all three of their playoff games division conference Super Bowl that kind of speaks to what Steve Young was just saying about how like peaceful of a headspace Mahomes is in when he's competing like he's so confident like I doubt those guys or even fazed when they're down 10..

"I find interesting because his stats would have been The exact same. You had no control over what happened the last eight seconds of the game. They win. He does the exact same job as he did accept. He gets an l instead of a W. And but But he dearly put in all the work to get to give them a chance to win, and they were ahead. But he wins. So now it's all the great Tom Brady this in that, But if he loses, I wonder what the narrative certainly would have been different. How different I'm not sure, but the narrative could have changed in eight seconds. Where he wasn't even on the field. That's how crazy it is well and you need things you need things to be there for you. It's like, Yeah, I totally agree that it's impossible to say who's the best? You're Tom Brady is a great quarterback who is an incredible in in an incredible situation with an incredible head Coach is a great office of line coach phenomenal organization. Joe Montana was a great quarterback who played with a great head coach and an incredible defensive surrounding cast and the great Jerry Rice at the end and You know, I mean, so a zafar is How do to rank these guys? It's impossible to just say, Well, you're one year two years three. It's just it Z. They're great quarterbacks, but you don't win. Just because you're a great quarterback. I mean, d other eyes. Dan Marino would have five rings. You have to have some compliment of these other factors. And if you have enough of them And your great enough. You're gonna win some rings, and that's where that's where those guys are at the very top with Joan and Brady cannot wait to talk quarterback legacies and current quarterbacks with Steve Young because we can get to this discussion, which started You know, we're talking about Philip Rivers and where he fits, but also the quarterback quarterback, and we're going to get this weekend because in the a F C.

You know, everybody gives you when you're sick and everything right? Okay. But I actually you want to know why it's good. It is because when you cook the chicken down for hours and hours and hours, and you make the chicken, it's like a bone broth. Basically right. Why is bone broth? Good for you? Because it has all the colleges in the peptides and amino acids and all that, But I mean, I just think that my booby like she knew all this stuff that we all like, read about.

Yeah, but the best version of out of the bus is cheeseburger, macaroni O k. C. Just take the controversial or whatever you get. Oh, no, no, no, no. Let me tell you, And here is the biggest thing you make it in the You know, you do the ground beef or whatever, Ugo and you get all the juices right? Like whatever you cook it in and you pour that into the into the box, Mac and cheese, and the whole thing pays all greasy. That is that is very, very, um, forward thinking, but also, I got almost say, I feel I feel a little dirty, even thinking about it that way, Like I don't know that zit. That's a lot of black like like you just cook the beef straight. You don't even need any. Like Look, He's right. Anything. Just do the ground beef and they just pour on all the beet juice. Great. I believe you. I believe you. Okay, let last one. Ramona, do you have an air fire? Of course, OK, OK, it's the best thing I bought in the last three years. Right one. I didn't have one.

The San Francisco 49ers Should Trade Jimmy Garoppolo Now
"Young. Basically, just talk about what we've been talking about right? He basically said it comes down to whether Kyle can trust Jimmy completely right. That's that's what he said Well, and then Jimmy's gotta execute it. And it's just their evaluation of Ah, Jimmy Garoppolo and And I was thinking When Matt barrels was on has been covering the team a while. You know, it's just one of the worst days as far as injuries to find out, you know, Chill your offensive, Captain Zerg on your quarterback, and you're And you're arguably your best overall player. Certainly one of your team leaders who just gave Ah $75 million contract, too. And Have you had some bad days that second week of the year against the Jets when Nick Bozo went down and Solomon Thomas went down and Jimmy hurt. The ankle initially was pretty bad. So that was a bad day. And then you know, going back to Steve's career much his first game in 97. Warren Sapp knocked Concussed him and not Jerry out. Jerry. Try to come back later, and it turned out to be worse and Steve did come back. So there's been some bad days and days of Steve Young. You know, when they first got here it was before Plan B Free agency, which was the first kind of soft entree. Into free agency in the NFL. You know, you could have Joe Montana, Steve Young and Steve Bono. When that was your three and a quarter back room, just incredible. And you know, the Raiders said Ah, Lamonica, Landa and Stabler all other same team. I mean, you just don't have that luxury. So the reason we're talking about this is the finances of it. And where Jimmy is that in the contract in the way they they front loaded the contractors. They had salary cap room at the beginning, so they They can make a choice here financially. Take it out from under Jimmy Garoppolo is even talking about before the year even started. I don't think this is really anything. I knew Jimmy has no more guaranteed money in his contract after this year, and the 40 Niners would have Tio suffer a two point million dollar dead, cap it if they trade him. Or release him. So I would much rather release him are partly trade him, then release him. But also the timing of this. The new league year will start. And you don't have to make any call on Jimmy Garoppolo. D have somebody on the hooker in the building or signed to a contract to be able to do that. So if you are going to replace him, you have to have somebody to replace him with And you're not going to do that now. I mean, it's just an exercise there. We're gonna play now that they do. Look at people They do look at contracts and they do look at who's possibly available and all that's in play. Now
Magic Spoon, A Healthy Breakfast Cereal
"Gary Welcome to the show. Hi, thanks for having me. Well, can you describe to our listeners what magic spoon radius of course magic spoon is a breakfast cereal company that I launched in April of two thousand nineteen. So just over a year ago and we are recreating all of your favorite shout who'd sugary cereals but without the sugar essentially. So imagine whatever your favorite junk cereal was an I imagine it worth more protein and less carbs zero sugar actually legitimately healthy for you. But with the and texture of all those sugary cereals, we we all loved growing up, right? Yeah. I had to look actually at the nutritional labels off both magic spoon and then fruit loops. A popular child with choice of of many, and I can see both serving of about one, hundred, ten, two, hundred, eighteen categories, but magic spoons. Macro makeup is completely different I'm seeing that it's fruit loops gets like eighty five percent of their calories from cops out of which about half come from Shoka match gets nearly eighty percent of its calories from fat and protein. How do you achieve that? Correct? So we've basically got a similar Carolina recount. We've swapped the protein and carbs around and we did riot by basing our SERIO ON A. Blend of protein slits, we primarily use a milk pudding ice lit as well as a way protein concentrates and use that instead of the wheat flour or corn flour rice lower than most classic serials, and then rather than sweetening with thigh high fructose, Corn Syrup, or perhaps akin sugar we use a blend of natural sweeteners that are essentially zero calories. So specifically use Stevia and monk route and three those in a specific combination allows us to get as close as possible to that sweet tasted sugary cereals without actually putting sugar into the products. I am because I was curious because I'm certain food scientists and then I saw you know like you have a blend of fruits, Steve Young at Lowe's and the nets reason to really achieve that that flavor or is it something else as well? So that's the sweetness the flavor itself. Ingram comes from natural flavors. Basically Ryan's depending on ever. We have a obliterate flavor, for example, some of us. Are Real Blueberry powder in that Labor, and then will actually get the colors from fruit and vegetable juices used in very small quantities. So not really adding any sugar but are You know some of our flavors resemble US beet juice, beet extracts read flavor fritzy cereal Spirulina to get a blue collar on our blueberry cereal. For example, the different gradients are different purposes but in general everything's entirely natural. Even. Though of course that doesn't mean very much nowadays but premium high-quality ingredients and high in protein sugar, a would not expect that actually when you look at like a package off fruit loops that they can be actual flavors in it. So it's it's quite impressive and you also have an oil plan with within magic spoon riot. Can you talk more about that direct? So he's a blend of. Highly Sunflower oil, and then avocado oil. Basically, you didn't oil to bind the colors in the flavorings to the base of the cereal and we wanted to, of course, was high quality. Fatty Acids rather than just like sure low-quality seed oils and so high elects unclear. Oil pretty different from regular Orlando it fatty acids and those are the same sort of saturated fats that you find extroversion. And of course, avocado oil very healthy as well. Got It and just going back to the sweeteners, and now that in recent years, the had been quite a few studies on a variety of different sweeteners and some of them half a good and some have a negative impact on one's microbiome worried as long fruit steve here on LAS, stand on that. Do you now that? Yeah, they're good impact which is why we chose them. So Chicago halls are generally very good. So bunch of using things like A. Recruits all tell which can have a negative impact on my own, but also caused just looting and general or stomach aches and a pretty large portion of the population. So we want to avoid sugar alcohols for that reason, which right meet means ingredients are more expensive. So obviously, stadium for are more expensive than a lot of the other sweeteners that might still be natural but he come with other issues, and so we wanted to avoid those issues, which is why you chose these three. Got It. So
Cam Gets Signed
"Well there was big news coming last night. Courtesy of our Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen former MVP cam. Newton is a free agent. No more instead Newton is heading to new. England to join forces with bill, Belichick and follow in the footsteps of another MVP Tom Brady. And Cam Newton's cryptic fashion. He had this to say the instagram. I'm excited because I know what right now all praise to God dropping contact tomorrow. I hope you're ready Hashtag. Let's go pat. And so now we know, and we'll start with Adam Schefter, and our health hall of Famer. Steve Young One one. Just tell us how we got here. How did this deal get done? Listen I think it took Cam Newton a little bit of time to recognize that there was not a thirty plus million dollar a year job on the market when you released two weeks into the free agent signing period not only that there's not an obvious starting job that's out there, and so the longer this went on, and the less he heard from teams, and there really was nobody that he heard from the more he recognized that he had to find the right spot. And if you're going to find the right spot, there's nothing wrong with taking new. England Riga tour with Bill Belichick and Josh mcdaniels, and the new quarterbacks coach Jed fish in an offense. That obviously is going. Going to be trying to replace Tom Brady where you're competing with the guy like Jarret, Stidham hasn't proven that he can play yet in the NFL and so cam. Newton goes to New England on a one year deal where he gets to reestablishes value show that he's healthy, and over the shoulder and foot injuries that he has been dealing with the last two years, and this is the the place that he now tries to relaunch his NFL career at the age of thirty one, which should be most quarterbacks, the prime of their career, no question and Adam. How likely is it that this is in effect? A one year auditioned for Cam to be with the Patriots beyond this season. Wendy what I would say is this if Cam Newton plays well, the Patriots obviously would be interested in resigning him, and if not, they have the ability to move on from him. It depends on how the year goes. It's difficult to forecast that right now. All we know is that the Patriots signed a former. Most Valuable Player who won that award in two thousand fifteen, who has tremendous ability who goes into this offense, and now we'll have to learn it, which is not going to be an easy task in a shortened off season for put as the ability to be dominant quarterback. If he can pick up that system if he plays that way, you would think that no one would not let him out. Out, the door, but again there's a whole year. They WANNA see Newton. They WANNA see them. They want to see a year goes to. It's truly to say that just yet well. Yeah, I mean a lot can happen in a year. We've all we've all seen that in Steve. How do you like the fit between cam? Newton and what he brings on the field and the New England patriots. When healthy. Rusted Cam Newton mean it's like. Manna from heaven right I mean in many ways I, think Josh, mcdaniel and Bill Belichick sitting around a lot of times. Saying. Could you imagine what we could do with this guy or that? Guys? They play these players. Run the League, and they see them in places where I'm sure they say because they're supreme of conference. Not Hubris just supreme confidence that if we could get a hold of him what we could do with him, and we can really expend on what you're seeing around the league. What we can do is special, and so I'm sure they're saying this about. If Cam comes in his foot is okay. Because we know the arm is all right, we should. We saw that early last year before. So. We know that he's healthy. If his what is good and he can move, you've got. Hungry. Sophisticated and the type caliber Blair in New England, where you have bill and Josh saying you can't imagine what we're GonNa, do with this kid and so I think that's I. think that's the conversation. That's happening right now. New England, Steve. Look it's anybody's guess at this point, but you. You have an opinion very qualified one. What do you believe the likelihood? Is that Cam Newton? Is the Patriots Starting Quarterback Week One? Again if healthy, if he can move around, I can't imagine them with his talent level, and what they think they can do them again. It becomes a you know it's a proof point for what they're out to show their out to show that we can do special things with special players, and so it's it becomes A. A right of passage to be in New England, and that we can take somebody, and we can show you amazing things that can be done and they've done that with flair after play after player so Cam Newton and healthy can move around. I. It's GonNa be, too. It's like a gravitational force when it's to special to be able to show what they can do with a great Cam Newton. Yeah,
Miami Local News - Tom Brady Expected To Choose Tampa Bay Buccaneers
"And of course Tuesday was dominated by D. B. M. Q. B. they begin with a social media post from Tom Brady thank you New England for twenty years as the day began to wrap up word would come that Tom Brady would be heading south time for straight talk brought you by straight talk wireless it's Tampa Bay that's the expected landing spot for Tom Brady the the official announcement still to come the Brady expected to be a buccaneer ESPN's Jeff Darlington this kind of is because it goes back a little bit in February when the Buccaneers behind the scene started to realize and recognize that Tom Brady was also serious about entering free agency something the sports world couldn't get their minds around but the box early in realizing that it was real so fast forward to this day and I I I'm actually not all that surprised I I the sources close to him that I'm familiar with it have always indicated that what really really appealed to Tom Brady right now at this stage of his life is the autonomy that he's never had the true ability to say I am in charge of me I'll choose where I wish to be what ultimately was most important to him as he was making this choice for the first time well first of all that's a great point I think that the idea that he was running away from something in New England is very true but at the same time I think he loved the idea of chasing after something new and I think both of those things can be true in that regard he was looking at a number of different elements here too he was looking at trying to be with a coach who is maybe more collaborative not trying to be the general manager of the office reported but just maybe have a little bit more input also wanted a roster that maybe had those offense of weapons to reinvigorate himself and then two other factors maybe to some people warm weather actually like the idea of warm weather and the second thing was proximity to New York City for personal reasons and family reasons so they checked a lot of the boxes in Kampala and that's when it really to me when I started to recognize what he was looking for was when Tampa really started to make sense the news of Brady heading to Tampa Bay coming on the heels of Brady saying goodbye to the patriots in a series of posts on Instagram Tuesday which ended his twenty year run in New England ESPN analyst Steve young we got a guy that I think really wants to enjoy the last little bit of his career get with Bruce Arians who I I was a student you check into my career you know mood shows a lot of fun it was really that was the best antidote for the end of a career because you kind of it kind of grows a little guy I don't have the coast tell the same thing and so Bruce Arians is perfect for the situation so granted that's what you get is Tom Brady I think you'll see a guy joyful he loves football and have seen him love it in a unique way no I didn't get to see Tom Brady love it in a unique Tom Brady way that's not you know and that's what it was all positive for the pages of president we get that but I guess I think given tomorrow when he gets introduce is going to be just a joyful happy guy with a great coach have a great time I think more than anything it's Tom celebrating the right to go beam for true free agent I just finally got a place where a coach can could have a lot of fun and okay so what I'm hearing you say is this is gonna be fun for Brady but I mean ultimately for buccaneer fans that think it's gonna be fun for them like are they selling themselves a bill of goods because we are talking about a guy who's forty three he's not thirty five thirty six thirty seven I think the idea of the house Scott you have to kind of James was was reckless yeah he also was very productive yes you want to started to move on and I think you've got to save yourself we can get that productivity special to pull out of the play action game with the talent that we have a Mike Evans and others we can get that production out of Tom Brady even though we recognize there is in decline and that we can bless and we leave behind the recklessness and look at all of the seven point games that we lost under seven and under with nine games they lost by any state can Tom Brady win those games and I think you have a tough time saying no we can't this is not a set deal is not a team that's Super Bowl ready by area you know I get that but it's a vast racial from the box from Tom Brady and they're gonna mix it in and I think a lot of fun enjoyable self comes out worth noting what we're talking about the Buccaneers after his time in the USFL Steve young was a quarterback for the Buccaneers Tampa Bay then drafted many Testaverde because they thought young was going to be a bust Steve young all of him while Brady is heading to Tampa Bay there's also the departure from New England ESPN's Adam Schefter this signs all along the breadcrumbs laid out of Foxboro there was nothing that took place within the last seven eight months that would lead you to believe that Tom Brady was going to return to New England again let's keep it all in mind let's go back and retrieve some history he voided his contract which actually voice today is the day that the last two years on the deal void he said up to avoid that way she said it up to become a free agent there were no substantial of contract talks at all between the New England Patriots in Tom Brady despite the fact that there's been speculation that there would be that the patriots will construct never happened Tom Brady was open minded about leaving New England and basically exploring what was out there listening to other teams yesterday the negotiating period opened it was the first day he was allowed to hear from other teams he believes that he is far enough along to make the decision that I'm not gonna go back to doing which tells you that he had to be in this spot all along and he had to know that when he was walking off that field in Foxboro after the playoff loss to Tennessee he had to know his mind at that point in time that there was a real possibility that he would not be returning there as the quarterback of the New England Patriots I don't think this is a football decision only I think this is a life decision this is a decision involves him his wife his children his family his lifestyle his TB twelve models it goes beyond just football and someone said last week why is there tension wires are just why did you want to leave New England and I don't think it's a negative situation this is a group that was together for twenty years the one six super bowls that accomplish more than any combination in the history
The Long Road Back to the PGA Tour, with Joseph Bramlett
"People are looking for someone to root for this week? Joseph Bramlett has to be your guy. Yeah thirty one years old. He was the youngest ever. Got To qualify for the US. Am hand you know. He basically took like seven years away from the top levels of the game. I mean as someone who's back as someone who tried to play Pro Golfer a couple years and then you know so the writing on the wall and quit. Yeah I have major admiration for someone that saw the top of the tower and then went to the deepest dungeon. And now has yeah. He's out of it. He had his back. He's LEGIT PGA Tour Player. Top twenty last week at pebble so he was a great guy to talk to him. Yeah we talked to him about twenty minutes. We talked to Rafael. Who is the owner of Genesis for another fifteen or twenty minutes and he told us basically everything that their brain is doing here this week? Why they love this event while they love. La Gulf stay tuned for that a little bit later for now here is Joseph Bramlett are we are here in What is now the Genesis invitatinal press conference center with? Joseph Bramlett the Charlie Sifford exemption. This week now your first time as the Charlie Sifford exemption but a lot has changed internalize since two thousand eleven. When you were in that position the first time you just came off the top twentieth pebble. How are you feeling about the game right now? I feel good. Yeah I feel really good. My coach and I did a lot of hard work in the off season Felt like I was showing some good signs. The first couple events this season and then To have a nice respectable finish last week was a good stuff for people. That don't know your back story like let's just rip through. His backstory is taking taking shots at me. A rude you were a phenom growing up. Tell us just a little bit about where you're from. You know how you got here. Wow okay well story here we go. Yeah I grew up. In San Jose California was born in Stanford Hospital grew up playing junior golf in San Jose Bay area. Yeah when I was fourteen I was the youngest to compete in the US amador. That was a big big accomplishment for me at the time and were teen years old. Yeah it was very young. Yeah it was really cool. I I was got a little bit of media coverage and a lot of attention from college coaches so made the recruiting process. Really easy for me and Yeah from there. I played a lot of amador. Golf in northern California I went to school at Stanford Was able to graduate in two thousand ten and At the end of the year I went through school and was able to get out here in two thousand eleven straight out of college which was amazing steal. It was a big company. People can pull that off no not at all and it was. It was incredible is amazing experience. I would say that I was probably a little bit unprepared for some of the things that came along with playing professional golf. What just how frequently. We Compete Growing up I would play at tournament for three days and then I take two or three weeks off prepping for the next tournament and out here. If you miss a cut and then you've got like five days to get ready for the next one and you my my rookie year. I played nine events in a row and I played eleven out of twelve weeks straight. So I'd never done anything like that big life. Yeah it was. It was just a huge life shock. I mean not only was I competing often but I also didn't go home for like two or three months and I'd never done that before so it was just. It was a big growing experience. That lines up with a lot of what to rookies have told me in the past and are held. Varner said something like that just like your first year is such a learning curve which kind of you know sometimes guys like Matt Wolf or more cowardly like snap their finger and it happens and they get it but that it's much more a rarity than what is the norm now. Absolutely my hat off to them. I mean they`ve. They've played incredible right out of college. Which I mean shows a lot about what they can do But it's it's hard to do that and yeah I I took the the learning curve. Route niners fan absolutely. Oh yeah outsider. Yet it was. It was definitely a tough pill to swallow Starting out the year I was really pumped. I thought we might make the playoffs. I was really pumped. I was like we might be in contention again and then eight games in house like we're good and then Yeah I knew going against the chiefs in the super bowl is going to be hard because they're so dangerous is Jimmy G. The truth for you is he the one Jimmy. Jeez my guy can't roll with. Okay I like it. Yeah I mean from a Franchise Tag Joe Montana and Steve. Young I mean. We have very high expectations quarterback no doubt when Jimmy came to the niners. The excitement around the niners went through the roof for him when he didn't have anything. I'm so he is helped the culture shift in San Francisco and for those reasons alone. I'm riding with as a packers fan. The niners warped our ask twice this year so down there better scary. So good football interlude. They're kind of like that. She was stick with just the football. Let's talk about Shanahan. Nice Forty five minutes twenty eleven. Yeah well you played well. You didn't quite keep your car right. You were just a few thousand dollars. Away thousand-year status. I mean how do you? How do you process being so close? You know being on the grind for that whole year and then just missing out on keeping your card It was tough. It was it was a tough experience. So two thousand eleven was my rookie year out here on the PGA tour and That year actually got my head kicked in pretty good. I didn't I didn't come quite that close to keeping my car. I think I've finished around one ninety five on the money list but the next year was my first year on the what is now the Korn ferry tour and so I think that's what you're referencing that year I was inside the top twenty five all year and thought I was going to get my PGA tour card back. I was really excited because now I had this experience with me looking forward to getting back and I came up short in our last tournament. The tour championship one shot short and I was I was devastated Kinda. Wear you stood where you needed to finish. Never know for sure because I think it was the tour championship there. Sixty guys plan. I was somewhere around twenty fifth and so there are a lot of guys behind me that we're playing well and you never know where it's going to shake out so. I knew I needed to get out of it as I could. Yeah I know that like there's little decisions you make on the golf course. Have these really big effects on the rest of your life. Yeah and that's what you train for as a kid to block all that stuff out just kind of stay. Stay PRESENT. Stay in the moment. I think I've put myself in that situation so many times. That much more prepared for. I've I've learned to do it. But it's it's really stressful. And Yeah so tell me about life since then because now you're actually thriving on the PGA tour but what happened between two thousand twelve and now. What was your road back like? Yeah so halfway. Through the two thousand thirteen season Was warming up for the Utah Championship. And I swing with a LOB wedge. I just got this searing pain throughout my whole body. I felt like every nerve in my body was set on fire and I just got stuck. I couldn't move. I had no idea what it was. I hadn't had anything like that happened before so I tried to get some treatment. You know one thing led to another. I had to withdraw from the tournament. The next day couldn't play and Yeah I spent the next six weeks at home laying on the floor Cross of visceral description by every never my body felt like it was on fire. Yeah with something. I've never experienced before. And anyone with back pain probably has a reference to what I'm talking to But it's it's just such a humbling experience because I went from being a professional athlete. Who Does everything with my body to laying on the floor and you know asking you know loved ones if they can bring me some food or like not brushing my teeth for days at a time because I just can't bend over to do it So it's just it's it's a very very humbling experience. GotTa be one of those things that you and I. We can listen to you. Describe it. We can't understand it until happens to you. Like no one can really understand back dame until they have back pain at least that's my understanding of it. Yeah I I'd say that's fair. I certainly had no idea what I was getting into at the time. Either and There's a lot of people deal with it though. That's the scary thing is that like it's the back dictates everything that moves in your body so if that computer has a problem nothing else functions and yeah. I mean it was from there. I got a lot of imaging and a lot of memories taken and we started to realize that I had an annual charity. My four zero five disc and that takes eighteen months to heal on average. So that wasn't fun. News to hear from the doctor goes through your brain when he says eighteen months. Until you gotta be kidding me. Eighteen months what takes eighteen months like. Yeah I'm like Senate guys to the moon and eighteen months like how does that even but It just shows you how delicate and fragile. The human body is and You know from that point I just started trying to figure out any routes I could take to speed up the process. I saw fifteen different spine surgeons and the first fourteen told me. I wasn't a candidate for surgery. All they could do implement rods and my back and that would end my career and then the last guy last guy was like yeah. I mean I can open you up and take a look. Were you looking for that information from? Are you looking for someone that would agree to surgery or I I was? I I knew surgery was not the best long-term solution but I started getting impatient and I was wanting someone to fix my problem And about the guy is the host this week the same exact things multiple surgery so I imagine yeah and as an athlete like we do things with our bodies and we wanna you know be strong and get back out there and get to work and Yeah I didn't. I couldn't do that so I actually was considering the last guy pretty good. And it's where my girlfriend's stepped in and she's like you're not GonNa do this like not having an experiment. Doctors exploratory back surgeries. She's like go. See this guy that I know. He's a physical therapist and so yes she got me. In touch. With my current physical therapist cody Fowler and Yeah from there. We started piecing together. How my body moved and kind of get me back on on track.

New York Jets head coach Adam Gase responds to support
"Adam Gates in his first season as head head. Coach of the New York jets his record today to end seven nevertheless interesting time for a vote of confidence jet CEO. Christopher Johnston said yesterday Ah Adam gays will return for the two thousand twenty season here is the jets CEO. I want to ensure you there would be no changes changes in coaches Adam. How's the trust of this team as the trust Sam? Joe's trust he has my trust. He's a good man. He's a good coach. There is a lot of work to. There's a great deal of to everyone understands And we're just getting started. I feel really good good Memphis team moving forward anytime you get support from ownership the way that the staff Scott supported. The old has gone way. Obviously we wanted We got a lot of games are jobs improve this team and go out and try to win games every week. And he's with us through every step within our communication with him so he kind of knows what we've been trying to do how we're we're trying to fix things that are that are wrong so no to get his support for him to Kinda see what we're trying to do. It's that's an important step fluish. Well that was Adam Gatien course responding to the SAGA lineup. Was He trying to avoid eye. Contact Tech High. We're out here. Do you find that the timing at all interesting or Steve. Young made the point. Yesterday Robert was a good time to do it. So people stop asking the question. I mean it is a good time. Just say. Hey He's going to be here next year but look he's been there one year having hasn't been a great year for him but you know look overall head coaching record. He's about forty a two percent. When winning percentage he wins about forty two percent of the time? So you know. It doesn't look so great for him moving forward but look he's got the support Ownership they're going to give him one more year and I can guarantee that next year if they're in the same position that they're not going to be so lenient on giving him another year. So Oh you look at what. NFL coaches are nowadays. They have guaranteed contracts. I highly doubt they WanNa give him a nice contract and then just release him halfway through his I well it gets to be an expensive decision. Yeah and that's a really great point because ownership obviously is invested in their pick. They want their pick to look good exam. You know you don't WanNa WanNa give up on what you decided so quickly although that has happened to certain coaches inside right around the league. But you can't forget that even even when Todd Bowles was there that the jets were ten and six in their first season and it was really bad. Blow to this team to the supper loss against the Miami Dolphins and just some of the adversity city that they've gone through since Particularly when there's been a lot of expectations with Sam darnold presidents on that team. Well Yeah. He was brought in large part to work with a young quarterback to develop SAM. Darnold help him take the next step. What's interesting is that they share the same stadium with the giants are struggling as well? Now in this case Pat Shurmur is in his second year as a head coach. But look they're coming off the bye. They've lost six straight. What's the word around his future? Well Adam gays was asked recently just how secure he is in his job in one of the ways in which which he retorted. What's to say I'm built for this? Just projecting confidence which you would expect the head coach to do. But I would be remiss to mention that some of the reporters in New York noted that was kind of the same something that Ben mcadoo said three weeks before the giants got rid of him and and clearly this is not the adversity or excuse me what they were looking to results wise to be having right now coming off of in two years of What they endured under Ben mcadoo but the reality is promising as Daniel Jones has looked particularly when he's throwing the ball With with the return of Saquon this is not what they were looking for. They're still suffering losses even with saquon on the field. I mean he has not had over sixty five rushing yards in the last three times he played. Hey only had two one hundred rushing yard games. That was in the first two weeks Daniel Jones continues to have issues with the interceptions. Fumbles and things of what have you and it has has. It was altered in wins. And you can't neglect the fact that this is in New York and teams with that media pressure there as well. It won't stop. It's hard to perform with a rookie quarterback though in this in this league it's not they had veteran it didn't it didn't work out. He still there by the way. He's still there. But look in this league. It's hard for a young quarterback to come in and be successful and I just think that we're witnessing growing pains of a young quarterback trying to figure his way Out through a hard schedule last year at this time he was done you know now. He's about halfway through so I mean it's it's a lot more difficult. I agree with you. Rob The only issue of course with the New York giants dances. They've had a lot of these same problems whether it was a long-term veteran quarterback or a yet stroup Such a great point. And so then you start to have to ask other kinds of questions
Stefon Diggs on trade rumors: “There's truth to all rumors”
"But we will start in Minnesota we we stefan digs and his current situation the vikings white out missed practice for undisclosed reasons yesterday and it led to speculation about his future with the Vikings today today dig said he has not requested a trade but did admit there is true to all the reverse. He said that he's unsure. His agent has talked to the Vikings and what has transpired can't sit up here like everything is everything is okay his obviously not but but I can't say at this point it just trying to work. Do I feel like there's no matter how you sit up. I won't be saved speaking on that off off. Everybody's known to be rethinking the next one that team guy always predicting but for myself. I never made it just about me. I've never been that kind of so my resume persona kind of speaks for itself. I've never been to got to kind of be off. Be like me me me and wanting to have success. I WANNA have team. Success is always what I've been pushing them always without push so my language was stated saying whether I'm giving many opportunities not not not a lot. Have you asked for trade if you haven't communicated anything more so the conversation has been about teen and China had success food ah I haven't spoke to them you gotTa talk to play Sunday. hopefully then you play. I like football. I want to be part of I want to the apart play football on Sundays on CBS practice today you anticipate house and I feel a little bit better as to Yeah Courtney Cronin joins us now from Minnesota. She was there when dig spoke and Courtney. You heard him say. There's there's truth to all those rumors. What's your take a what exactly he met. Wendy he kept repeating that phrase multiple times throughout his media the reliability this morning and I think that that's him not completely closing the door that we're all he did say when I asked him straight out dicky requested trade you want lots traded and he said I had not communicated that and then obviously you have to follow up about his agent. You didn't fully close the door saying that no. I wanted to be your completely like that. Is there some uproot that there might be some validity what we've been hearing me Hainan seeing that this has been something that's been brewing probably for a little bit of time now so. I think what you were. Each phrase wants to continue to say it while he did say walk this year and he's been here for five years. He loves everything about teammates. I think he's questioned what you have to bring his question about whether he's feel value. He does have a role in the offense but it is minutes role than it was US last year and obviously you've been obsolete. I come in the steam because that kind of brings things to a head to where we're at right now. Wondering are we've seen the end of the era. Is this the beginning of something that we should be more concerned with or just going to blow over eventually because feel there's fire. I'm Greg it courtney. Thank you yeah I think in this case. It's fair to say there is some fire that smokes coming from Joe Joe. I'll ask you first of all about attentional trade market for digs if he were to move on well. I spoke to a team last night that I know would specifically definitely be interested in step on just because they expressly told me that and then last night I think an inquiry was made in they came back and said that they were told that Stefan was not going to be on the market and I see we're hearing during that today in terms of other people following up on the reporting what we do know about stuff on digs at here's a career worst three catches per game and five targets per game and and even though he's coming off a career-best production with over a thousand receiving yards and nine touchdowns his production in the two years prior to this season. It's still been under Adam Adam feeling and you know he's working with the new offensive coordinator and Kevin Stefanski and prior to that obviously was Pat Shurmur. WHO's the head coach of the giant so I think talk. You're looking at a receiver who feels like he can do more. You might even feel like he's the best receiver on the team and he's right. He is not a Mimi Guy in terms terms of how he portrays himself publicly. I've covered him a lot of times. I was there for the Minnesota miracle of so many of his games and by comparison you would definitely not put him out there but off in that sense but just listening to his words and the fact that he did leave the door open with certain things that he said he is letting you know that he is frustrated in that also think that that it fits within the era of athletes right now this season and last season being more vocal about their situations taking more control of where they feel like they can best flourish and I'm getting the hint although I have not talked to him directly or his agent that he's trying to let people know that he feels like everything is not completely kosher dill. It's funny you say that Joe Joe and I think Steve Young. You made the point two weeks ago with the genie sort of being out of the bottle I this is another example of a player. I think trying to sort take some control of a situation a situation that from his perspective is not working the way he'd like it to work yeah. I think it's a direct reflection on the quarterback play that that's been in Minnesota. Obviously his diminished role isn't because of injury or lack of talent. It's because the quarterback isn't getting everybody the ball right. Now I think last ask year when you see how everyone was involved in Adam dealing was getting the football step on digs with everyone was happy. Everyone was performing. Everyone was getting the ball. There were schematically. There were in situations where both of these guys were making big plays and that's what you're used to seeing from the Vikings and I think this year those players just aren't there and there's plays aren't there for those plays aren't necessarily there for Stefan digs for any of those past catches right now because of the quarterback play and I don't know if that's schematics. I don't know if that's simply the quarterback but I think he's unhappy with how he's being utilized and he's taking things into his own hands and to his credit. I've known for some time as well. He's never ever been me guy. He's never been so. This isn't necessarily about putting himself before the team I think at some point he has to look at his career and where he wants to go trajectory wise and make a decision and listening to talk. You almost felt like he had a little bit of emotion coming out when saying I'm a team guy and I'm not a me guy and I'm just trying to put the team. I listen as a football player. I know you can you've experienced this. We only have a certain amount of years and we only have a certain amount of time that we can go out there and play the game so you don't WanNa feel like that. You're wasting a season and I think that's why a lot of guys once they realize look. There's no chance for us to get to the playoffs this year. There's no chance that we're GONNA win in this division this year and teams on the flip side of that. I understand okay yeah. This season is pretty much over so let's try and get some value in some of these guys that are good football players and that's why we're seeing that more this year than maybe in years past. I thought the most interesting thing that he said Real quick when you're asking me if he was going to practice US I don't know I hope so. That's that was the less you know that he has expressed something to the team and he's maybe worried about how they reacted to. How that's what I'm thinking yeah I mean he he clearly was not one hundred percent sure you're next and Steve Young joins US now Steve. We have talked about this before given our conversations and I'm GONNA assume zoom. This doesn't surprise you that we're seeing another example of someone stepping up and saying this isn't working for me no players who are going to continue to demand what's going to be interesting. Is there is is there going to be a market and I think the Jalen Ramsey and if this situation does go forward and these guys are able to get to new teams I I think the ice will break because there are a number I mean everybody in the League has had moments star player now this star players that can do this because they're they're not. GonNa risk career other. You know non star players are not going to risk their careers to demand a trade this cut and so the star players going to say. I know there's a better place for me. I know there's a quarterback it'll throw me the ball and others office coordinator that will take care of me and that's going to continue to grow and I think this is a this is really the really important time Wendy right now awesome because of Jalen Ramsey doesn't get moved and digs does not get moved and the kind of kind of chill this whole thing and can stop it then this market will not not be kind of a burgeoning market but if they start to be able to be moved then everyone the legal realize I can make my way out of here and I wanna be somebody somewhere else and to the to the point just I it was victor. Rodman raw made it but the average career is three point two years in the NFL players are very aware of it. If I'm going to be great I'm going to be great right now. Well there's no question is a pivotal point in the league. We'll see digs by the way signed a five-year seventy two million dollars extension last year the thirteenth highest paid receiver currently in the
Who were the best left-handed NFL quarterbacks?
"Today's national lefthanders day so you know i think of great left-handers we did this on quarterbacks talking about the n._f._l.'s greatest. All time left handed quarterbacks and you forget some some gyms. Zoran is a guy that we tend to forget seattle's gyms orne left-hander okay. Why did you look funny at me well because okay that's fine so he wouldn't have made the final cut right off the good n._f._l. Career so you would think of boomer assize and for for sure super yeah kenny stabler yup the snake steve young. That's the one michael vick in in listen in a short window took in their season. Michael vick wins this if it was just on which which of these lefties had a better single season i think vick was changed the way the game played he was in a single gle season. I would give a strong consideration. Michael vick steve young would be again. We put these lefties on a playground and you've picked the the left handed quarterback you want. I'm going to pick steve young. I thought he had the best combination of the things
The pride of the PLA
"That's not every day you get to go on a Chinese warship, but for China. Correspondent Bill Birtles the rare opportunity came up during a naval fleet. Review off the port city of ching Tao, and, despite terrible, weather, and heavy handed media management. He says it was a day out like no other. Several kilometers out to sea of China's east coast, watching the pride of the Palay nineties flight go by, at close range from my vantage point on a training ship. Chidi Guang, China's first aircraft carrier. The Liaoning is just one hundred meters away, and yet I can barely see it. It's almost completely lost in the heavy fog and constant rain. The reason I was on a Chinese navy, ship in the middle of a massive international fleet review was because of diplomacy. This actually wasn't my first time on a Chinese warship my very first assignment for the IB see and China was to cover joint drills between the astride Sean's and Chinese off the coast of Guangdong province back ban. I managed to get on a Chinese ship in the port, but this time was different. We were. Being taken out to witness more than thirty Chinese submarines destroyers and the carrier go by president Xi Jinping was on Jason ship observing the review that they were also seventeen foreign ships, including HMO Melvin, which is why we were invited. Astrid was in good company. The Japanese South Koreans Vietnamese and Indians were among the nations that sent ships like Astrid area, all of them had their differences with China yet, this was a goodwill parade. The city of ching, Dow was in lockdown for the event, I asked one tourist retiree if he was excited about watching the naval parade from the shore, he told me he was disappointed that police had blocked all the roads to ching Dow's Haba. So we couldn't walk down and see all the ships himself. He wasn't happy about it. But as I was. Talking to him a couple came over and corrected him sighing the heavy handed security misses a normal and other countries do the same. They were Cain to assure me. It wasn't security. Overkill, Justin necessary safety measure. Of course. If the strategy indefens- falls gathered more than fifty ships in sight. Sydney Haba for a parade and then blocked all the access to the harvest side. I suspect people would not be too happy, but this is China and extreme security is the norm here. So then it was time for what when Cam for the fleet review with my cameraman Steve Young. We convened at the hotel with other invited journalists and began the first of many security checks. All our equipment was meticulously sqauad. We were. Then boss to the port where we went through to lots of airports styles security to get onto the ship. It took ages. But once on board, we will take into a lodge, dining room where we were served a box lunch vacuum packed bheith assaulted Koenig, some cake, and fruit. And then now ship again. Chugging out to see all this was fairly smooth, but there was one very obvious problem. We've come to ching now to get amazing shots of dozens of warships lined up fighter jets in formation flying above us. The might of China's rapidly growing navy on full display and yet the weather was atrocious. Thick fog and constant rain meant we could barely see more than one hundred meters in front of us when it was time for the parade to begin. We couldn't see more than one ship at a time Justice, the Ryan new intensified further, the announcing declared the Liaoning aircraft carrier was going by this was the mine event after all, and yet everyone on day was staring into the grave wondering where the heck it was. West for us is the moment when the astride Ian ships, sail by Steve long couldn't see HMAS Melvin even with the maximum zoom on his camera, you couldn't take a worse style for Nival fleet review and with it over, we scrambled to a pace to camera on dick. This is awesome flexing a celebration. I tonight Melvin from Friday or is here. I thought my summarize something senior Chinese official had said at a function, the night before that the parade, according to China wasn't about muscle flexing. And yet, one of my military minders listening in took umbrage at that as the ship chopped back to poor. He warned us that we must delete that he's the camera or risk access to the navy in future. Such threads and not uncommon in China. But it seemed to me it was a bit light to be threatening us given that all the filming was done in the story pretty much finished the pace the cameras stayed in our report as Dido all ou- shots of the warships lost in the fog. Visually stunning naval parade. It wasn't but a Diana's, see with China's navy is not something you forget easily. The frustrations of correspondence life, Bill Birtles, there reporting from Beijing or ching Tao, more accurately.

"I four or five years we were on this big thing for four or five years. I kept hearing this argument. Era. Jurors goat Brady second or Brady one. Rodgers to greatest all time apparently Joe Montana. John Elway never existed. Peyton Manning never existed. I always said. You do get it. Like, Tom Brady's got a room in his house full of trophies. They're not that stupid argument. And then I had something I said something during the middle of this year. And I said the it was perceived as a hot take I said the eight best quarterbacks I've ever seen in my life. It's not just about Super Bowls. This is about talent playoffs records your impact to the league. Your impact in the city. What did you overcome? What did you play with the eight best quarterbacks? I've seen again. There's a lot of different. It's Peyton Manning. Tom Brady Joe Montana. Terry bradshaw. John elway. Dan marino. Aikman and breeze. Now. People said you're just saying Troy Aikman. Oh leadership playing hurt toughness dominating a great division. When Washington giant in Dallas pout, those eight best quarterbacks, but the one that got people worked up is drew Brees was a hot take. Was way Rogers, and I said he's right on the outside right next to Brett farve and Steve Young and maybe Dan Fouts. And isn't it interesting? Mr. I'm crazy hot take. Right. I was whoa. You're and I said, no, let's talk about impact to a city. Whereas Aaron Rodgers was given a championship roster a championship level head coach and championship momentum in front office. Drew Brees was given the Cleveland Browns with a port Katrina bountygate. One guy was given the laughing stock of the league that had one playoff win in the history of the franchise. The other player was given arguably the most iconic franchises in the NFL with championship level players. Great momentum terrific front office. Very good head coach. So that's not close. Also. Let's go through four or five things. If drew Brees wins this weekend and goes to the Super Bowl, and they are favored and most people like the saints. If drew Brees get to the Super Bowl. And if he does against Kansas City or New England that again going to be a field goal game. If drew Brees wins the Super Bowl. And again, they're favored at home this weekend to get their Super Bowl titles against Aaron check breeze. NFL records, not close check breeze impact on a franchise. Drew Brees folks is the saints. To Aaron Rodgers is arguably not the Packers best quarterback ever impact on the franchise is not close leadership qualities. I don't know. One guy has former teammates constantly calling him out one guy is revered where three hundred pound offensive lineman. Literally do we have the tape? This is what happened when an offensive lineman Zack street retired recently for the past eight years I've played in front of the most prolific passer in NFL history. Drew Brees has been the single greatest
Bikes and bureaucrats: getting the shot in Beijing
"S we approach the fiftieth season. I thought we take a look back at some of the programs memorable stories this year and today, let's hit to China on ABC TV a few months ago, you might have seen foreign correspondents investigation into China's homegrown rubbish crisis and didn't happened with some startling images about China. Correspondent Bill Birtles just at side. Beijing walking between thousands of dumped bicycles will sometimes in China. It's the easiest shots that are the hardest to film and Bill Birtles found out the hard way. But never underestimate the sees Beijing bureau, I'll let Bill till the story in Beijing there up lace military armed police security guards. And even volunteer neighborhood, watch types everywhere, and they have one thing in common when they see a foreigner. And the camera first instinct is to shut us down recently. I tried to film a bike dumping ground. These are the places where local. Governments dumped tens of thousands of share bikes to clear them off city straights. They make for quite the visual shot, and it was a good example of Chinese overproduction and whites with heard of a massive dumping ground on the outer fringe of Beijing tens of thousands of bikes in yellow blue orange green all piled up as far as the I could see we drove up an adjacent road only to find to private security guards guarding the site. They said multiple gods. Took turns to guard the site, including at night worse yet the bike dumping ground is perfect for a drone shot. But when Steve Wang lighter tried to fire up his drone, it wouldn't fly. Beijing government enforces geo blocking on drones in the city. And it turns out this village was right on the periphery and still affected. So we left empty-handed. Having filed to film a single shot. It was not a good day. But a few weeks later we hatched a plan to go back. So it's about five in the morning here on the outskirts of Beijing, and we're on a bit of a covert mission of cameramen Brandt coming and the other Beijing KOMO Steve one with me. Brent how you feeling? Well, it's conditions could be better. But wait mart work in favor. And then it's it's quite early. And it's it's been whether it hasn't been great. So we're hoping the security is of this particular Artis leaving. This is going to make a quick escape a little bit harder for bogged down so to speak. We've got the getaway drive. A he hung Ming. His drive extraordinary. We've got the car. We're ready to go get mugged up here as we moved across the muddy field as quietly as we could power. Neue creek dean the move. The longer village down in that little gap on coming down this from towards the towards. The thing is we got up at three in the morning. It was a two hour drive to get here. We'd already come back empty-handed once before and we really wanted to get this story. I was not taking any chances to have it scuttled by a couple of bleary eyed security guards. As we need the bikes. We sheltered behind some hedges. It's one thing to get some quick shots. It's another to do a proper job of it, including a piece to camera and some aerials if as a Curie God us, so hurt us like county IVA getting the way and ruin everything as I went in -mongst the bikes with Steve one, I rehearsed pasty Hamra one of many dumping ground dotted around just hoped. My voice wouldn't be loud enough to alert the guards as we started punching out pieces to camera brand would to get the shots from the sky. If anyone can get around some technical problems withdrawn, he's the man and Stephen I got out shots the word of the drone taking to the sky. Above us made me realize we were half way towards getting the shots. We need at any point a God could come down and stop us. But it was becoming clear out gang. Able to come back so early in the day had paid off the guards were asleep. And after twenty minutes of uninterrupted filming we got out of there. So mission accomplished are on the way back. Fred you had a few struggles withdrawing, but you got it up there in the end. Yeah. Okay. We live and learn with these things. You know, we didn't go very high, and we didn't go very far. So hopefully, we won't attract any. Issues from doing that. And Steve Young men on the grounds shooting up close. How did that guy? Yeah. This is to be honest quite hard for us. And there is. Security guy, and we have to. Lead fun some pass, and and and get rid of them. So I think yeah, it's but it is perfect. Get everything. Yeah. But this is just a bunch of Boston Gul's in a field. Why why do you think is the security was so difficult to get what should be such an easy shot because this is China? So to be honest, they their job is stub us to fend fan of the place and the shoot at the report the news. And I think this is only job what what what they do. But we got it. Yeah. Yeah. Got it. Doing TV in China can be an uphill battle. Which makes the good days all the more enjoyable this Bill Birtles in Beijing. Because pundits report.
