A highlight from GEN C: From VR to AI, Mattels Vision for the Future of Play
"This episode of Gen -C is sponsored by Chainalysis. Gen -C is the generation of the new internet. In Gen -C, the C stands for crypto, but it also stands for creators, the connected consumer and collectibles, both digital and physical with on -chain provenance. It stands for culture and characters, the ones we play in games and the companion ones that AI is building alongside us. It stands for community and digital citizenship and the new set of transparent and trustless tools being built to govern them. These are the people who were raised on a different philosophy on how they look at money, how they look at identity, how they look at privacy and how they look at the hybrid, digital and physical spaces being built all around us. And finally, how they reimagine their relationships with the communities and companies they interact with. We focus on how brands large and small are building for these audiences. Welcome to Gen -C. Sam, so nice to see you. Avery, how is everything? Where in the world are you? I think we're matching color -wise today, which I really like. What's going on? Gen -C in neutrals. Yes, we are. I'm live from Hudson Yards. How about you? I'm live from Flatiron. We're like a stone's throw from each other. We should have done this live. Neighbors, we really need to do more live episodes. That should be one of our goals. We should do that coming up for our Basel. Are you going to be there, Sam? I'm going to be at our Basel. I would love that. Let's figure it out. Maybe we can do some Gen -C merch all in Off -White or maybe an A -Crew might be nice. A little touch of Gen -C neutrals. Maybe a little hint of green, though, to nod towards our branding. Always up. Avery, I think we're going to deep dive in this intro into the immersive worlds that is immersive worlds. So I've sort of collected a bunch of things to talk about that I want your opinions on, that I want us to mix it up about. The first is, and I think I shared this with you, was reading a report on virtual brand environments from, I don't know if they're pronounced G -I -Q or Geek. It's Geek. Charles' company Geek. Yes, Charles' company Geek. I saw the report on virtual brand experiences, which was really interesting, but the thing that sort of stuck out to me most was when you measure the properties that under -25s are spending most of their time in. Number one is Roblox, something you've been talking about forever. Number two, TikTok. Three, YouTube. Number four, Minecraft. So you think about that, it's two virtual worlds and two really entertainment -focused social platforms. And so I wanted to sort of get your thoughts on this as a reality, really for the marketers in the room, because I've been having a lot of conversations, as I'm sure you have in the last couple of weeks, on how we should be thinking really future, right? Like 12 months, 36 months, about the rise of these virtual environments, both VR, AR, and gameplay, as well as video. And what is a brand to do with these spaces? How do you guys approach bringing brands into these environments? Yeah, it's a good question, Sam, and I think it's one that's very blurry because if you ask 10 different people, you're going to get 10 different definitions of what is an immersive experience versus a game versus a metaverse versus a virtual world. And what I've observed working with a lot of these platforms directly is they all characterize them a little bit differently. Some of them like to lean into gaming, some like to learn into metaverse, cough meta, some like to lean into immersive experiences, some like to lean into immersive social. Like Roblox very clearly does not identify themselves as being a gaming company, though a lot of their players actually identify as gamers and as people who are playing in a game. And the way that we think about it is, one, it's like social, where there's not just one way to show up on social. There's X, there's meta, there's TikTok, and there's always a new thing. Just this week, like Flip has been trending and has been everywhere. So I think the same is probably true of these immersive worlds and immersive experiences. Some of them are a destination, some of them are a platform, some of them are communities, and one thing's for sure, there will continue to be more and more of these built because people want to engage and interact virtually. And as we know very well, people want to own things online, they want to bring their digital items with them across different realms. There's a lot that people are trying to crack in terms of interoperability, but balancing interoperability with scalability I think has been a challenge. But the way that we think about it for brands is consumers are looking for these ownable, immersive, personalized experiences. There is no question about that. There is no question about where they're showing up, and we have a lot of data to back that up. Geek, of course, has put out these fantastic reports. They have their own self -service platform as well, where you can see what they have access to data -wise, so you can sort of validate that people are there. And the way to show up, from my perspective, is very similar to how brands try to experiment with any new place. It's authentically connect with those communities, authentically partner with the leaders in that space, with creators in that space, and learn before you go all in on launching something that's fully brand -owned. What stands out to me from what you're saying is three different things. One is it actually reminds me of the beginning of when Experiential was becoming a thing. Yes. Because in the beginning of Experiential, which was really like when I was really building most of my career, every company had a different name for what Experiential was, right? Some were events companies, some were PR companies, some were doing activations, some were doing stunts. No one could align on what the language was even, so it was actually very hard to be an agency in that time because you're selling five different things to five different people in ways that you're hoping to get a little bit of a budget from someone who had to take it from somewhere else. And then at some point, Experiential just became the accepted category, and it feels like now virtual or persistent experiences feel like there's a moment happening around that. The second thing that I want to digest from what you said, which is the hypothesis we've talked about a little bit, but I've been just going and battle -testing it with other folks in the space, is this idea that the evolution of experience design is going to these immersive worlds. And so in speaking to a digital marketer, a large brand, this past weekend, I kind of asked their opinion about this, and the thing they said, which I thought was really interesting, was it costs the same for them to build an experience in a virtual world than it does for them to create one pop -up event experience in a major city, right? So if you really break that down, it's like you can do your influencer event in Tokyo or in Paris, and you're going to spend a couple hundred thousand dollars to do it, or you can build something in a Roblox, in a Minecraft, in a Fortnite, in a Zapeta or Spatial, and you can have tens of thousands of people go through it versus 500 in a single evening. So they were looking at a little bit like kind of this analogy of if we're going to be doing five events this year, maybe one of them actually is a virtual space that ends up being our always -on 24 -7 experience, and then the other four are IRL, and they kind of feed into each other. Oh, you didn't get to make it to our event? Go enjoy it in whatever world it might be. So I thought that was also an interesting framing of experiential as a stepping stone. Now it's going to be live events, augmented hybrid events, and then fully immersive events. Any thoughts on that? I love that, and I think theoretically it makes sense. Practically, event space designers, like the environment design, inherently has to be so different, even between Roblox and Zapeta. That's the reality. It can be the same sort of broad concept of, hey, we're going to show up in this type of a way, but it's not like you can just take your renders from Art Basel and put them in Roblox and it's going to work. So I think it still has to be fit for context. The same way it has to be fit for context in different cities and in different pop -up experiences, it also has to be fit for context and fit for format in these different worlds. And I think what you just explained is the way a lot of brands would think about it. It's like, well, I have this pop -up, and I'm now going to just virtually pop up. If you do that, if you build it, they won't come unless it's good, is my two cents. Of course. Well, two things. One, I think we're not there yet, but I know there's a bunch of people who are working in this space, that we are entering a place where the tools you use to design your 3D, your fabrication, and your event design for a pop -up are going to be able to output into game -ready assets that you could import into a Unity, that you could import into an Unreal. And this is something I've spoken to a fair amount of people in the architecture space about, that as they're designing spaces now, it's getting easier and easier. It's not a one -to -one solution, yet there needs to be some middleware. But I do think that if you were designing the flagship Gucci store in Venice, and you wanted to create that version in Roblox or in Spatial, it wouldn't be as hard today as it would. No. I think it's getting easier and easier, and I think theoretically it makes all the sense in the world. And we haven't seen that many people doing it yet. I think it's really smart, and I think people who really understand experiential should gravitate to scaling this out. And then I wouldn't be a vain right if I didn't say it's not only about the event and the experience, it's not only about bringing it to these places, it's about capturing those experiences, both in person and virtually, to scale on social. I think we have this big theory that events can be a huge content generator if done properly, and I think virtual events can as well. I think this allows us to go to the next step, which is also part of the conversations I've been asking people, and I think that you've probably been focusing on, is this idea of immersive commerce. That we're starting to get to a point where we know Roblox is building out a ton of Shopify -like features into what they're doing. We know that Fortnite and Unreal are doing the same thing. We're seeing it in a lot of the blockchain -based virtual worlds. But the idea that you can be buying virtual items and also that your immersive worlds can be storefronts for IRL items, which I think is a really interesting place at Advertising Week last week. I was on a session with Super League, but also with the executive producer of Hamilton, and what she and Maggie were saying was when people come to the show, there are limited -edition t -shirts you can only get when you go to a Hamilton performance, and so people buy those as badges to be there. She's like, we're starting to do those to come into our Roblox experience, the Hamilton experience they have in Roblox. But then we were talking about, oh, but what if you could also only buy a specific shirt by visiting or going through a specific experience in Roblox, but that we send you the actual shirt? And it becomes kind of a more front -end shopping experience in an immersive world. I was just reading about this group 3DM, which is doing a lot of AR, VR. We love 3DM, yes! Yeah, exactly. But the thing that was just really interesting to me was they just did a big raise, and the lead investor on the big raise wasn't like an A16Z, it was Interpublic Group. And I was like, oh, so interesting that it's an ad -holding company that's coming in to help create immersive commerce because that's where the ad companies also see there's going to be an opportunity in the future. Are you guys working at all on the idea of in -world commerce as a scalable technology? I would say we're experimenting with it, and I think we're trying to advise our brands to not be too greedy because you can make some money, but it's very small. It's very, very small, and I think that the earned media potential is actually greater than that if you do it correctly. I've seen a lot of these agencies buy up rights to monetize digitally, this thing that we saw with NFTs, and we've kind of tried to caution away from that too much. I think it's okay for pilots, it's okay for very limited things, but I would way rather have 100 ,000 people claim a free digital item and be wearing it around Roblox than to sell 1 ,000 of them for $100 each just because the math doesn't math on those things. I wonder a little bit about the stock Xs of the world, the Supremes of the world. That's why I said the very limited edition, yes, but if you're just a normal brand t -shirt, why don't we just give those away and then have them be walking billboards? Versus if you're like, great, there's only 100 of these that are super exclusive and awesome and done with this cool designer and unlocked this cool thing. That, I think the premiumization, 100%. I think the mass though, it doesn't make sense for brands to be too greedy yet because it's still a building economy.

"This wasn't just at the european league level right. You had you you and you see it for you know years and years and years where the buyer of the world would you know routinely win or come in second place in in the bundesliga and in perversely you have clearly you know everybody else right Trying to get the crumbs and whatever else is available but also when byron comes to town even if you were the lowliest you know qualifier. You just moved up to the top tier that year right. That's a that's a boon. If you will for at least two games a season because you get to play the big guys. So i guess what i'm trying to get in. There is a question. There is beyond sort of the european continental level. What's going on over the last number of years in the domestic league situation because it seems to me that that sort of separation is is sort of literally bubbling up and are trickling down. Shall we say to the individual countries and their domestic leagues to well. It was a direct knock on effect of the champions league that the teams that competed in the champions league main more waymo cash than knee teams. That were not competing and europe. The domestic level also that them to buy better placed the more wages on that led to a yes while to tear to tis across europe in soccer. The two tears domestic soccer. So you got some as you say by. Munich's very good. Example or about to win and ninth successive title in germany. You have the dominance domination of eventers in the milan clubs In italy also on the to madrid clubs in spain.

The two very funny dange so that was also the time that was august that that was going to happen and the team. I decided you grasshopper zurich was also going to happen. The second level actually ended up in switzerland happening with actually basel. Who won the league. I think something like eight to nine seasons in a row on were rich on champions league cash because they were able to make the group face a few times and it's had really damaging effects on just in terms of of the attractiveness of the competition in the seventies when i grew up in england livable the dominant team. They were a great team played. Great soccer european champions but there were several seasons when they didn't win and you had teams like everton aston villa nottingham forest dhabi county You've had teams like queens park rangers and west ham united southampton challenging for the english title bulls. Much more interesting. Now when you you -cational outlying like leicester city who themselves backed with with large amounts of foreign cash Once once in a generation team like that may win the primarily but it's getting hotter and hotter in germany. Nobody's coming close to competing with buying munich. So it's it's depressing. The lack of and just a lack of the rioting in seeing who wins the trophy ended the season.

There's also the quality of match against man city quality match against they will long remember even as an awesome tip. What do you think about the future. The future question. So i think our pro football has nothing to do with the super super league hasn't created owners of championship clubs spending two hundred percents of their turnover on wages. That's not super league's force. But equally a lot of the problems in football our guide to the exacerbated by war we would have been exempt anwar soclean funds to so i go back to the point i see about sort of physician harasser. I think i do think a lot will depend on. How real madrid. Barcelona itani if they can extratime themselves from the abysmal financial positions. That are i. Think that will have a material effect on the european. I think they'll be the be different because this just by european they'll be different solutions in each country. I mean many ways primarily funding off the super league reaction to the primarily. Anyway the italians and the spanish would kill all be commercial success in the popularity of permanent unless actually booms so it's into locking jigsaw. But for me you have to follow the money back where the money is going. Where it's there's a lot of money flows out of the game. Huge amounts of money for the game stripe to agents. I don't know of anybody from agents who think saucy great idea even if he told the players plays admits us are we talking about burying We watch football clubs.

"And geeky government and that alliance and strategy and planning work has made uefa become even bigger fans of us. Which is can you help us in football politics across the continent globally. I'm not a fan of boris johnson. He's a populist. And therefore this is what populist politicians do he saw an opportunity fell a bit opportunistic. But i just don't know what the reality of it will be. They've promised on a committee or steering group to look for government governance and tracy crowd. Yes can't be heading that up which is probably good news of the promise on how much influence and decision-making powers that will carry. Let's see everyone knows that the the power and structures of the premier league and football here a very strong said that folks think get sustain government interference. And i think that's the way they would like it to be sudden. See a great long term future for government trying to control or have an influence in say all regulation of football in that spirit. Okay tracy crashed. He's good news. Yeah put everyone towards the podcast. We did with us was great in that. And then although sean rover over and gave her so those who is the last one. We did before lockdown. She so just around off. Then let's we both of you mentioned that you think this is going to come back in some shape or form then terms of the super league whether it's as presented all not. Let's just go forward a few years. I won't put a time limit on it. But how is european. How is that what we do. What are we gonna be watching. European football club football. Who's at the moment is a massive feels and had this chaotic disruptive week and we're still in the middle of it anything that you think. Okay that's a certainty that will happen over the next three five years. Whatever thirsty what happened. But we have our new format for european football me The champions league and some people have commented that is perhaps a watered-down cheaply has sort of framework of what the league was trying to achieve and putting some potential dan. It may work. It may know that as i said before the evolution of european football has been going on since it started and has been changes in the it in nineteenth and in lost. Since trump is lease. I started been a number of changes to most of them at been fairly good. I still think. I can just about remember the european cup shallow and it was good. It was good. It was yeah. It was a tournament where the league winners of every country played against each other and there was called a european company and it worked because that appeared to be sort of rewarded success in a way that is already it was revolutionary is as but th- rich and obviously trump is no fund. Win win spurs in it vehicle. Couple of years ago and that wouldn't have happened dipiazza. Be less champions. Think there's been a lot of commentary that the style and quality of european matches have been excellent in a knockout stages over recent years and it really has become the pinnacle of football to watch probably supposing while cup european championships and international generally so the product at the end of it. You wanna call it. That is raw the good. Have we replicate. That says excite. Seeing an intriguing has drawn. The jeopardy aspiration will throughout the league. Season is something to debate. Maybe a new format that comes. A couple of time will will help that. But i think that there's been so many great matches in last year's spurs included..

"And yet we're now saying okay. What do we want and we know. That fans are traditionally very conservative. They don't like change so changing sport or not is always difficult because it was comes of this. This is an extreme example. But it's always like this. I don't know what you do. How do you evolve the game. And how do you put right. What many of us think champions league is boring. Many of us think actually it's overblown and bloated in the center is too big and the rest of it so this is i didn't like the super league but what do i want and who is going to lead me to the sort of sunny uplands home. The next is going to put this right. Because it's i have sympathy for those people that say look changes required and this idea that commercially ingredient and the rest of it. I get that but yes so uefa. So a fee for so and so so i. Don't i feel a bit. Like i don't know what i want. But i didn't want that and that's not really helpful position. I'm still actually a little bit of it didn't zones hoping six of them disappeared off to disneyland given the hamas economy fifth in the national league. We would've been promoted on mass the sixers but the league be serious. I think where i saw with on the sees. He's a group of people on the president. L. presidency wanted emerged bronco has run his club. Spectacularly badly yeah and he signed the answer. I'd loads and loads of money and lost the muslims. The terrible position so any even more money because even will not going to sort it out. I think starting from that position reveals where the direction of trouble needs to go. Yeah it does clearly some new limits. Obviously we do not have a revamped champions league format. So let's see. How if you that one richard. Maybe that will make you feel bets. But either course of european history. We always involved will wish changing. Hasn't been the same like baseball. Lost thirty years and modifications have made some of them were better than others. Ever remembers the double league table full map that came to champions league and then it was dropped. It will just continue to evolve. I think he'll find a happy medium. I think people will find a new way to absorb in appreciate the game. I think the fans are still bad. I think it needs radical complete. Overhaul the modifications think you ache. Suggested this week that see lethal. Let's see how it works. It just feels like there is a if unless you go back to. This is partly nostalgia. But also i think he's probably true. It has to be the of its champion. It has to be the league winners. Have to be one. There wasn't much wrong with the european cup. There wasn't much from a fan's perspective and then the cup winners cup which raises quote this the status in the jeopardy around the cup and okay. The offer cut was that was. The third option was in terms of the the sort of status. And we know we all know that hasn't happened because berlusconi and i didn't want that from the eighty we're still fighting these battles from the late one thousand nine hundred eighty s. So it's unless you get back to sub that purity of that tournament than everything else is a hedge against failure is just. The super league was an extreme hedge versus what the champions league is which is essentially a fudge. Yeah i figure. I is a philosophical point here about scarcity and again peres in saying what he.

The Life and Death of the European Super League
"So adam now that we've seen basically all of the team's pull out of the super league as of now. I think it's just real madrid and barcelona that are still in it. Can we pronounce the super league dead. Does it still have a faint pulse. Where do we stand. I think we can say it's dying. These clubs will now have to richards. Ufo and previously. They have really significant seats at that table. They were on the board. They were putting over levers of power in their absence. Carrie sandra mona buying if take the biggest seats of influence because the other clubs they will resigned from that position is not a disaster for these clubs in that going back to but it's certainly intended and is the super league dead forever. I don't think you can ever say is dead forever because these clubs still have the most interest this still drive. The revenue drive the interest and if they were able to organize themselves. I'm putt larry. Goes to one side and come up with a real strategic plan an email communications plan. It's not inconceivable that this could happen in the fuchsia. But i think it would take very very very great. People to stall is compensation gain afterwards being the most kilometers. Forty eight hours. You a champions league is set to resume on tuesday of next week and at one. Point uefa the organizers of the champions league had threatened to ban super league players and teams from participating in the champions league rail madrid as of now has not withdrawn from the super league and they're scheduled to play in the champions league semi-finals. Is there a possibility that real madrid will get the boot from the champions league. That's a really good question while we're talking gone while we wednesday afternoon. Uk time as of yet real madrid have not withdrawn. But it's happening forty eight seventy two hours it's interesting in the sense of madrid's president frontino peres. He was the chairman of this new

It's like at the end of forrest. Gump it's a little feather. They just flies up and just goes away and then the super league is gone forever but it did cancer. The imagination is a pretty much fans of every other sport who came up with their own superleague for their sport. Now this happened a lot in college football as the lazy among us decided to just do a super league not me. I have the super. Oh kaley coming out. But so the super league proposed by andy staples he has. Let's see fifteen teams only team all right. Well there was only twelve. Or i think there's only twelve in the super league.

"Pillow ever. It's not wednesday. And i can't believe you know how much has happened since i recorded that a couple of days ago sitting in my car. My son's soccer practice. I legitimately believed that. When i recorded that that it was going to be the end of the champions league and potentially competitions club competitions in europe and maybe even affecting the world cup in the euros and everything else. I thought this this thing that happened was going to usher in some new type of You know governing body potentially for not only at the continental level but for you know football overall we know that is not perfect. Uefa is not perfect. There's there's been a lot of corrupt people in positions of influence and power in both of those organizations for the longest time. And it's kind of funny that you know fans cata sided with uefa in fever after this whole thing happened. But i'm still. I'm still really really upset at these guys even tried this crap. You know so now. It's wednesday the twenty first of april. The super league has collapsed. The european super league is no more. I guess as of this morning the only clubs that are still in it that haven't made official declarations to withdraw whatever our barcelona and real madrid. And who knows by the time. I record this or by the time you guys listen to this They may they may have pulled out in the super league may just be completely in collapsed or whatever But it's crazy. How fast that happened. Remember waking up on sunday and seeing this and you know the first couple of hours. I just thought oh you know whatever they do this whole time blah blah blah but Come monday because of the stuff that Florentino res- was saying i legitimately thought that you know he was being so cocky with some of the stuff that he was saying I really thought that the champions league was over. I thought that uefa was going to go away and you know. I seriously thought that money was going to push out. You know the desire the fans in there was gonna be no meritocracy in european football. You know once it starts you know one place in the league. Topple fever or something like that. This would spread globally. This guy florentino perez. The would see the president of real madrid. This guy literally said he didn't interview and said that he believed that and without presenting any data. That kids are kids and young adults as you say from sixteen to twenty four. Were not watching football anymore. The way that they were however long ago i don't know he presented any any concrete information but he was saying that they're no longer watching the games anymore because it's boring or whatever then. He was so bold that he said that the games are too long. He wanted to shrink the games down from the standard ninety minutes. Plus to whatever. I don't know and i was reading some stuff i heard people talking about. We're in a generation video game. Where the young kids they they. They like their football in doses. They want to be able to see a game. Have you be really short..

"In the end they're just creating a bunch of bad blood because some of these people that were on the european clubs association are also like executives for the super league so they were like talking out of both sides of their mouth but they knew the plan the entire time for the super league while their colleagues in the sea or in uefa had no idea and then they blindside them with this uefa yesterday or sees me today. This is another reason why the super league nonsense came out. Yesterday was because today uefa was going to release. Its plan for the changes to the champions league for twenty twenty four to start in two thousand twenty four and now getting rid of the group stage. It's going be one big league. And what thirty. Six teams total you know. I told you guys on many occasions. How much i love the group stage. They're getting rid of the group stages because greedy billionaires or sent to millionaires. Millionaires are trying to change the game without the input of the fans or fans organizations. You know the champions league or not perfect and as roma conference league you know. The systems are not perfect by any stretch of the imagination. But they're much better than a proposed super league where no one essentially can get relegated. I hate i totally hate the concept of it. And i hope these f.a.s.t. I really do hope that they drop the hammer on the on. Some of these teams would love to see these clubs take points deductions. Let's say this this whole superleague thing collapses and then they don't do it or whatever i still want to see them take points deductions and get fined for even trying to come up with something like this. You know. this is like seceding from the union looking to south carolina. This is like starting that you have to be punished afterwards because now a lot of those people aren't gonna be able to be trusted because there is always going to seem like they're going to have some type of super league plan on their mind and they're going to be trying to undermine Uefa and fee for the entire time. I mean we'll we'll we'll see what happens this. This has been pissing me off. Because i've been on social media than who's all day waiting to see what's going to happen and when you wait for release that plan. I was so upset so upset. I get it make more money. I totally get especially you know bouncing back from the pandemic allowed a lot of teams lost a lot of money. Had to lay off people. You know but Getting rid of the group stage. Wait for this just a terrible terrible move and it's still. I'm just upset about it. But i mean it is what it is. We'll see what happens I think right now the champions league and the rope leaguer on hold Psg are probably extremely excited about it. Because you know they haven't said anything about joining this proposed super league And they're in the semis. So we'll We'll see what happens. So i just wanted to Give you guys my thoughts on that and You know while they were like kind of fresh in my head. So this isn't this isn't a normal beginning of the show but Yeah so now onto the rest of the show.

"But the difference is the premier league brings in a lot of money that gets pushed down to the lower ladders of the pyramid of english football. In addition another difference. This is only one country that was being affected another difference. Is that even though it hasn't happened yet. Some of these the big six clubs of They still have the potential to be relegated down into the championship with this proposed european super league. There will be no relegation for the original. I think fifteen members supposed to be a twenty league before fifteen members. There would not be relegation. Now arsenal tottenham there right now not in a position to where they they'll be playing football next season unless arsenal wins. Europa league and tottenham got knocked out recently by a club whose coach was arrested the day before their europa league match. You know i. I see this as nothing more than a money. Grab i would love to be able to see you know to have nothing. But top clubs you know in european football constantly playing each other but at what cost to the the the lower level teams. You know. there's still always that possibility that burnley is going to beat liverpool or man city or whatever you know. There's always a possibility that a small team. I'll tell anti for example making it too. I think they makes it the quarters in the champions league like recently and now they want to take this european super league essentially make it the new champions league and basically you would have fifteen teams and five teams. That would be able to get promoted and relegated. Ardabil league would always be the constant champions of club level football in europe and It it's it's it's it's just disappointing. And what's his name. Florentino perez the president of real madrid He he's like the main culprit now. I'm an american closed league. Sports franchises are the big thing here in the us nba nfl major league baseball and the national hockey league. That's just how it is the mls we would love for the mls have a promotion relegation system with like the us l. or whatever. The mls doesn't have that because football is not. It's not even a top. It might be the number five sport in the united states right now and i would argue that it is probably competing against nascar to be totally honest with you for that fifth spot but the reason we even have the. Mls is because the united states was forced to open or start a professional league in order for them to be able to host the nineteen ninety-four world cup and now yes mls is blowing up. It's getting bigger austin texas austin. Fc just had their first mls game against the galaxy this past weekend you know. The mls is huge now over twenty teams. It's it's big but it's a closed league. Yes some people say the fief are protecting them because you know there's no promotion and relegation..

"What's up everybody it's rub. It's actually monday that. I'm recording this monday. The nineteenth of april twenty twenty one. I'm actually sitting in my car right now. Watching my youngest son have his first organized. Football practice ever He missed last season Partially because cove it allows the the clubs around here kinda shutdown not allowing new members But he's trying out next month but he's getting some practice in. They told us we could bring him out. Let him you know practice. Some of the kids age He's a two thousand eleven so which is kind of funny because he's one of the tallest kids on his team You know my little one. He's he's pretty tall. Which is you know i guess. Good for him or it could be bad because he may try to throw him in goal automatically but he seems to be having a good time. He's running around. He's jumping interacting with all. The kids seems to be having seems to be having fun. Nervous coming over here but he seems to be having fun now. So but yeah. I'm sitting in my car watching this practice. And i've been you know looking at the news on social media and all the news. It's in the sports world at least in the football world. I should say has been about this. European super league Where do i start with the here. Opean super league. So i've been doing this podcast now for almost two years and the concept of a european super league has come up. Probably two to three times. Since i've had the podcast I guess you know. There's arguments for the super league but there doesn't seem to be as many arguments for as there are against I can't really explain or understand why someone would want to have a european super league. I i get from a a certain fan's perspective. You know you wanting to see liverpool play real madrid. You know multiple times a season or barcelona playing. I don't know you vent his or you know whoever the milan darby multiple times a year But me personally. I don't think having a closed league in football is beneficial to the fans. So i i one of the things that i've heard a lot of people. Talking about is the premier league basically started under like the same type of conditions. And you know look how good the premier league is now and blah blah blah..

They're going to create a Super League, so they're gonna leave their current leagues and all joined together and create this huge Super League that Ah lot of these owners would make tons of money on and they would leave everyone else in the dust will now that's falling apart. Mainly because of fan reaction. The world not having this. Joining us in studio is our own Premier League aficionados. Stony better, although I know you Tony Premier League I, but you follow this. So essentially, that's basically in layman's terms. What happened here right? Like they were trying to create a Super League And now the reaction's been so poor? Yes. So you've got all these different soccer leagues across Europe, and then you've got your big clubs here. Moneymakers People are familiar with. And they wanted to pretty much join forces make this bottomless pit of revenue because you'll get the TV ratings. He'll get all this excitement because fans all around the world coming together. Depends. Yeah, Best of the best, which is there is something already in place like that which is the Champions League. And that's the best of the best for all these clubs. They qualify for it each year, the year before, and then they play in this massive tournament. And essentially, that's kind of what gives these smaller clubs the whole because anybody can qualify for this, they'll still be able to get in. But right now, so no matter how you perform, you could have these big money market teams, and then they would compete year in and year out, essentially closing the door on the little guy and fans of these big teams. Do they look at it like their owners? They're selling them out, so that's why they were so frustrated taking to the streets protesting So was the

The so called European Super League isn't quite so super after all, following a seismic but ultimately shambolic bid to get this breakaway off the ground, one that threatened the entire footballing pyramid, and it will be fascinating to see how long it takes for the damage. The bad blood that this episode has created to be forgotten. It won't be easy. A number of forces were at play here.

"super league" Discussed on Daily Detroit
"Because they like the team that they grew up with or they like a player that they follow and they don't give a damn about the team they just like that player and then they like whatever team that player plays on so that is a whole different type of phantom knows. If that's what's happening now all of my friends who are super super big fans of these clubs are like if they joined the super league. I'm done supporting them. I'm so done but they're more traditional european football fans. Today's modern football slash soccer fan is like i'm a manchester. United fan is cristiano ronaldo's there. Oh wait he's playing for real madrid. Now i'm a real madrid madrid for life. Always planning for you ventas now. Oh event has old lady. I'm a big fan. Wherever they go. They follow their favorite player. That's it it's just. My favorite player goes here then. I like this team. Favorite player goes here. I like this team. It's not about the club. It's about their player. Which in today's sports players are brands their own brand. So like it's right on partly you're saying wherever this guy goes. This guy could go play for the hartford athletic in the second division of american soccer. But if he's going there guess what they're just following people around sort of the modern fan them going to the super league doesn't matter because now there guys going to play against like the best they don't care about rivalries they don't care about anything else all they care about is the stats are their one player sacking against other players which to a degree i get because forging loyalty to a team is hard to do especially if you don't have like a family. Yeah i used to be a big baseball fan and loyalty to team is about your family. And your connections as nothing to do with like mike illitch owning the tigers right. My great uncle was a huge hank. Greenberg fan and i'm a tigers fan because my great uncle harry was a hank. Greenberg like i. That's why i'm a tigers fan. Like i don't care about those other folks and like this is where i'm going to extrapolate this kind of pivot a little bit to more of a local idea here. All this league jogging is got my brain going and this is just the business side of me and you can tell me. If i'm wrong are full of it. Fletcher i gotta tell you with the moves. Detroit city f c is making. They better darn well. Hope niece is a success. Like nieces got a button itself up together in the next year or two or else. I think we're going to be seeing a league situation. Like what we have with dc fc because let's be honest a team like dc. Fc can't succeed without growing and it can't keep playing teams that the extent of their media outreach is a hand held phone on my cujo no i agree with you a hundred percent. Their niece has to work for them me. Going to tournament last year was super eye opening because it was very poorly done and fact nieces people came for the first day and then like the second day left to go back to chicago and as a result of them leaving to go back to chicago. They missed where michigan stars owner. George junkai freaked out about a call and almost ran into the field..

They bought manchester united. I believe that's the team that they bought. I remember there was a lot of pushback about them buying that team. I can american businessman coming over there in buying a team in england and running the team the biggest brand to brand to like. They're going to ruin it. They're gonna they're gonna flush it down the phone or whatever but when you think about this and stan kroenke and maybe shot cons involved in this. These are all american businessmen that have people around them trying to figure out how they can make more money and they've figured out the way that they can make more. Money is by forming a super league and leaving the premier league is one one of the situations in the other countries are other situations but it is creating an enormous amount of stress for the soccer fans of the football fans over in europe. Right now big deal. I don't think it's going to end up happening because all the pushback you got the government involve you're gonna have many governments involved in one of the things that they were saying in england is that you know there's a lot of these players obviously their international players coming and going in and out of england and you know they all have to have the proper passports and all the proper paperwork regarding the teams and all this other stuff. They're talking about taxing these teams. They're talking about not allowing these players to play in this situation. I mean there's all sorts of things that are going on right now but it is a it is a huge deal. It's like we. We use some different examples here but imagine would never happen. Because it's not a worldwide sport. I guess you could say trying to think if football were a worldwide sponge us basketball. He's basketball okay. Let's take the nfc. Let's take the lakers I guess the nets now. Let's take utah and let's take well chicago bulls chicago bulls celtics. Okay and say they're going to go play in international league and lead the nba behind. That's basically what it's like. Yeah and that of course would be insane. People would go nuts over that just like they're going nuts there but the i can't imagine this is gonna i mean with this type of resistance that we've already seen well the you know the thing obviously being over there you know getting to and from stadiums not a big deal you know it's like going from state to state but man i'll tell you it changes the entire tradition of what everybody grew up and this is why they were worried when the glazers bought manchester united initially not. They didn't see a super league coming. That maybe maybe they would have run it into the ground and they wouldn't be as successful but now that this is here. This is the the problem with having people buying something that have never been a part of the tradition of a league. It just seems so drastic to make more money. Now i understand the nfl. They tried him. Every lee tries to make more money. But this just seemed so incredibly drastic. Yeah like the. Nfl tweak here there at a game at a playoff team things like that you know. Play a couple more international games. But what's going on here is changing the entire face of the sport. How about if you're these other teams in the premier league and now you're losing your best most profitable teams that won you play them or they play you just like playing the yankees or the dallas cowboys is a big deal just simply because the brand recognition and the success that those franchises that think about manchester city manchester united how those are two rivalries. It's been two teams. That can't stand one another you tell me one of them's gone in the super league and the other one is like like the yankees leaving based paul. You know who the red sox staying like. It's crazy it's crazy. It's impossible to use the logic to try to put it into what we're used to because it's not comparable keep trying to give examples trying to give examples but i don't think there's anything that's like a direct apples to apples comparison. You're a hardcore fan. Now ask you. If you're a hardcore fan of one of the teams that was asked to join the super elite league. Would you feel differently than one of the fans. That is a part of a team that wasn't asked to join. Would you be all ford or against breaking tradition. I think everybody's against break in tradition. That's where i would think i mean. it's like flattering. I suppose but at the same end. It's like wait a second. This is not anything that we're used to it. Ever our entire lives. It's been like grand players are up for this. They're getting paid more money. Yeah probably i mean. I don't know how far along are we in this process. And they're they're pretty deep into it. Now that's why it's becoming more of a mainstream story. I believe i heard it's gonna start in the two thousand twenty three season. This is this is them getting kicked off correct. Who've here's my take is not going to happen. I know one thing too much pushback. Too much. Pushback fans don't like it riots. That's what i think. They're not going to be happy with this. Those soccer hooligans aren't going to let this happen. I don.

It was announced today that a european super league is not just in the works but now appears to almost be an established fact and a certainty and twelve. Massive clubs from around europe have pledged their allegiance to this league with three more to follow and then five more. I suppose for lack of a better term to be invited after that. Getting the number up to twenty the ramifications of this are obviously immense and massive and tectonic in terms of what this sport is as we know it and that is why we are here tonight to talk more about this because i think as i was saying.
