"Oh just one team. I can't see I can't see past. It's Liverpool and Manchester City. They're just such a distance between them and the other side. I'm going to flip a coin between Liverpool and Manchester City. I don't think Manchester City can perform as badly as they did this season. Yeah, so and they were just spectacular season before and I think they will add maybe one or two to their team that makes that difference. So I'm going to go from Anthony and jambres League champions league has anybody that's what I love about the topic is especially if they continue with the knock-out format, which I really like. I think the president has said that they will consider this but not for this TV off with Steve. It is already done for human have a strike only one thing. I think I forgot wrong is because it was compacted into one month because of everything that happened. They should have brought the kids. Times earlier they you know, they kind of ignore us fans and Asia Asia, like, you know, there's nothing stopping you from bringing the kickoff times, maybe 1 hour or two hours earlier. Okay. So I think think they can an opportunity to increase their fan base across Asia, you know people that would not normally have watched the champions league if you brought the games just a couple of hours earlier, maybe three hours earlier. I think you could have built a much bigger fan base the next season, so I think they got that badly wrong. So last last quick question Indian Super League 2020-21 winner hosting favorite for you.

"Dos. On. One of the PODCAST. Honestly I. Love Free to talk to this William and I have said many times we think ten cents are some of the smartest investors in the space like by far right just they seem to be one step ahead of everybody all the time and they've made some great investments and while the valuations are high, you know they always seem to realize value out of it. How much of the ten cents strategy here does eeg look at and go you know we're doing the same we can do that to read because they've been doing it for a while I'm just curious. What you think of their overall strategy and how it compares to what you guys are executing on. been successful. I. Mean they're. The giant gorilla in the game they have the big news just really initial scale in. If we had. Their Wallet. Would we be doing bigger things faster? Of course what? You have to be a little more strategic. We can't afford to make a twenty million dollar stage and we are not we have five years that twenty million dollars back we try and take eighteen months view on our Ohio, do these days. So we've gotta take more by size pieces that weaken your creative a shorter period of time but yeah I. I originally, we are a very similar strategy gambling Elvis. Bill Bell the Chinese love gambling the Chinese government doesn't like the A. Gambling. Because they're all over Macau gambling themselves. There's. Issue Macau is Asia's Vegas, of course, and it's all one hundred percent them. I would imagine most the owners are members of. The. Army. said. Clearly, ten cents is a well uncomfortable. There well-financed and the moves they make you can't fault them up so. To your point. Should. We. Be. Valued higher. I. Your opinion. Somewhat biased here. Their story though just two weeks ago Gee lose. Financing on a two hundred million dollar value Asian on four million in gross revenues they're only four hundred, thousand in know in national in. New is player versus player. Wade's tournament black former. If you're looking at that we have were drawing currently are valuations. One quarter there's and we do five times revenue you tell me if. It's this weird kind of and part of the problem too is I think you guys are unique in the in the public markets right up until now the companies have been lackluster right and so have suffered from you know somewhat valuations of the problem is you guys are new right new wish and you're doing something totally different I think it takes the market's a little bit of time and understanding to go wait a second these. Guys are doing something radically different. This is not Super League. This is not right. I also think diversification strategies tend to be a little harder to message and understand Zicklin fresher industries right like if like the example I would give is like if all you were going to do was make baseball caps right like supreme pretty easy story to tell right you're like well, people who like baseball like maybe people are scared of the sign Riley Commodities. But if you're like I diversified apparel company manufacturing jeans, bathrobes, sneakers, it's a better market, but it's a much harder storyteller. Because you have to justify the pieces you have to explain will know the same people are buying baseball caps probably also one gene like I think in general were at a level in the market education space today were like it's almost the onus is a little bit on the people investing as they come up the education curbs appreciate the more complex businesses rights and that that's a bit of a cop out like it's always like I do think it's true that like the reality is. Up until two years ago, just saying each sports was a it didn't even matter what else you right now we're at a point where you have to have vertical within eastwards I think we're at or very close to a point where people actually understand the nuance of okay. No, it's not just the vertical, his actual, the operating model, and the is the de risking that you have on that venture and the breadth of that venture that matters so I. I. Think we're getting there but I think it's just it's it's a more complex reseller people logo signed grab right there's ten logos they're ripe. Those companies are doing great things but that is a ten times more complicated story to ingest. Well, that's a good point. I was on a gesture. and. Be. J.. which which one of these companies one time. All. What's What which ones on want by g surrogate Helix. Force nation. No. Easy to eliminate was flagged. Not Out. But I I also think that's just the wrong way of looking at. The saints. But yeah. It is a difficult story, the message. Clearly a small soundbites. The way of looking at it right to me that person asked a question the it doesn't really matter what the answer there is right the bigger. The beer question is, how did these pieces work together right and do together and do they make sense together and how each individual piece operates on its own, and that's what I wanted to add is I think now with this acquisition is used grants translated their worse through lines in the business that create a more focused common story, right because the assets lineup a little more clearly I'm not saying it means the assets before didn't have strong structural. Absolutely did but now more of the dots are connected in the illustration. So it's easy to stop talking about the jobs in start talking about the shape that your dry ride again well, I am just on these tear. Swimming earlier. I know. But I think that's exciting. I think better I think stronger messaging as a result of this is is a go for takeaway. Does look the that that wraps up this week's podcast a grant and Jeff thank you as. You are now in the very elite group of ti-time guests on the podcast. It's a very small group but I think. Some of our favorite guests make it their.

"Yeah, and the thing is, you know, what do next with sahab? Now, what do you with the me? How old is the help 21 is he? Yeah, Twenty-One an hour signing long-term deal with Keller. I think you're not going out in this in time recent years now. Yeah, that doesn't really mean anything. You know Neymar signed a 5-year contract and left after two. It doesn't mean anything the the length of a deal at all because not off the European clubs going to pay any transfer fee for Indian players because you know, our level is not as big as the Brazilian footballers for sure. Yeah, but you've got always remember the transfer fee is at the behest of the club who owns his registration. Yeah, so the club can say, you know, what if Real Madrid come in for you we can relinquish our Demand on the transfer fee and instead asked for a sell-on clause know there might be a strong claws in that so, you know, there's many many ways. You can construct the deal. It's not just one-size-fits-all. But anyway, that's not the point. I was going to make the point I was going to make was the Chrome. Second European Club is not going to take a twenty one almost going on to twenty-two-year-old the where's the future value, you know in taking a player from place like India and hoping cuz because of those steps that I mentioned earlier on in our interview, you know, it's going to take five years to get him in a position people, you know, go and look at Martin Odegaard Martin Odegaard came from a reasonably competitive league, which was Norway. He was playing every week in the tipm league in Norway, which is a very good standard by the way. Yeah, and then he went and he was playing in that League at fifteen and sixteen years off and then he went to Real Madrid and just wasn't ready. He wasn't good enough of that stage. However, he's now gone through all the levels. I think he went to Holland for a. Couple of low income with real sociedad wage is on loan. Sorry real sociedad now only goes something again in a position where he's ready for Real Madrid, but however, I think that dog something now twenty that talks of, you know, staying at metal decision. Correct. So you see how it's taken a player like Martin Odegaard who how do I describe? This actually was ready and what I mean by ready was dead. It's enough strong enough had enough speed experience in a top league in Europe. Not the top league in Europe playing regularly at sixteen years old and you compare him with the likes of the home who has not been playing in the top League. He was not fit enough strong enough in comparison to his contemporaries to another twenty one year old who is in a European league and not expect him to walk straight into the Real Madrid team. It's fantasy. So the thing is that it would take you know, look how long it took a peek just to be in a position where he was on a level with his peers in Norway. Yeah, you know, I mean, guess a goalkeeping position slightly different but it took him the best part of three years to be out about level so and and that's a game..

"The contract that was given to me that he was not one year. It's extension or one year plus an option or two years person auction. It was a three-year-old girl and it's just straight three-year deal. So there was no ifs or buts about it. It wasn't a fudge in a see some contracts and deals done now where you know the agent or how long will try and make out that it's some special deal. It's not a special deal except it doesn't trust the player. So therefore, you know, we're going to pay him for one season and then we'll see sandwich. As to the first one of those kind of things so complete never had that it was an actual three-year deal which showed you how much trust and faith that they had in him at that time. Now, like I said before the salaries weren't huge because you got to remember he's coming in as an unproven player, but that's just the way it goes. So, you know and then all of the you think about money with the I so but you're absolutely right. You know, I I'd spoken to Stephen Constantine after around that time and Stephen Constantine was basically saying look, I need the players to be back in India if they're going to make it into the first thing though. I didn't understand that logic because surely you picked the best players, you know, let me think of a mark schwarzer, you know, Mark was playing in England, but his national team is at stralia. So what because he's not playing in Australia, there's Mark Schwartz or not become the national team goalkeeper, you know, is he not the best goalkeeper shalom? The best player in the best position has got nothing to do with whether playing in the world. So there was a bit of pressure on him to to come back and and and I mean it in many aspects of physical pressure Financial pressure political pressure. So, you know, all of those things put together that was one of the reasons why I came back cuz yes, it was the build-up to Thursday that yes to the to the age of carpenter Force his way into the national team. But you know one complete is done is is phenomenal. I'm just disappointed. Like I said that more players didn't follow and you know, let's be realistic here and complete will be realistic with you as well. Complete is not going to go on and be the goalkeeper of of Real Madrid thumb, you know, uh after Sal back whatever but he's moved the Indian football Frontier further forward and that's what every single one of us should be home. Trying to do you meet coaches ego stomach simple. Whoever it is. If you look at anyone involved in Indian football, that's the question that should be asked. Are you moving the Indian football Frontier forward and if the answer to that is no or a maybe get out of my way. I'm not interested go away, you know, so did Steve she constantly moved the Indian football Frontier forward. Yes. He did or some of these agents moving the Indian football Frontier Ford.

"Let's call it playoffs, but it is Mickey Mouse so it to me, it doesn't matter whether it's is l i League one, I liek to talk. Um, whatever the name would be as long the top tier is a league and that you can do promotion and relegation. So it's great that they've now said, right? Okay, you can do promotion. Relegation. I think it's after what is it after two or three years? The answer is next few years. We will have Team coming from my league and then they will have promotion-relegation first promotion will happen a couple of years. Then the relegation will also start. Yep. So there are certain fundamentals in football actually which and I'll tell you why I'm so passionate about this and I'll tell you why it's so important to me because what happens in the same league system professional football leagues in India has a very very big effect on what happens with the national team and at the end of day what we all care about I think you'll agree actually should what everyone cares about in India is what happens with the national team is the national team improving. So if it's if the best team in India has happened. What was it two seasons ago when Bengaluru finished a season 10 points clear of Chennai? Yeah, and then they lost the final and Chennai went into the AFC. How is that correct? Rewarding and promoting Indian football in Asian football competition. Tell me how that helps Indian football. That's how stupid the system is. I think God. Yeah. So they also heard you now. This is a Dev change the rule by way. So now they're giving more importance to the club who is finishing on the league stage. For example, Goa who finished stopped on the page after the league stays they are now qualified for AFC champions league group stage. And of course, then you have final say I'm fine and final the winners also get the AFC cup off. No, correct. Yeah spot. So I think they are moving into that. You know, because everybody thought if back in 2014, you know, need that extra push in Union football to bring that money should bring that clamor in maybe because we Indians fan of you know, we like when their lights and action so we needed that point food Indian football specially dead. Grab the eyeballs. I feel we have the eyeballs now and now you see the the decision they have been taken last two years. For example, as you said the leak state champion now is going to be Champions League not the winner wage. Hopefully what I heard from our sources in couple of season, you might get opportunities when there might not be any playoffs of finals, you know, so they are moving towards that goal. So so here's the thing and look there are so many things that I N G Reliance in the Indian Super League of done, right but there are also so many things that they've done wrong and I totally agree with you in the early days. They needed a bit of hype and hoopla and they needed to get some names in I understand all of that. I get that and you gotta remember in in the final days of the i-league before the iso the product on the pitch of i-league was improving massively. Yep. However, what was happening off the pitch was still terrible. It was like going back fifty years and contracts of players weren't great. There was no marketing whatsoever off the TV TV broadcasts of ten Sports as it was at that time before it was taken over by Sony Entertainment networks was terrible. It was really shockingly bad the quality of it bad or production quality was bad..

"Yeah I would think that. There's probably a large proportion of gamers out there that would really like that idea of combining being a beer with video game but are you frustrated with just sort of. I don't know a lot of the smaller cap. Companies micro or cap companies that I speak to have an issue with being smaller micro because it's hard to get attention. It's hard to reach the potential investor base that might be interested in investing in your stock. I mean do you find it. It's just tough to reach the investors that might be interested rested in in investing. I mean what I would say is. There's no doubt that there's like a micro cap kind of this kind of right bat. Said what Super League does differently. Is You know maybe investors were targeting our gamers themselves but they might have a kid. WHO's a Gamer or you know grandchild and and also we've always felt? This was the heavy retail. Clay that you know this is the chance for you know people who are gamers. She finally have a way to participate in the East economy which has eluded them before you know really all it's been available to them as large cat game Polish stocks which then goes back to picking titles right. What's the next grade tidal title so to be a pure play you know I mean but yeah marketing? Getting the word out is a lot of you know kind of challenge out there. I do find it. Investor conferences were always oversubscribed and standing room. Only at our presentations and it. I don't think just because about east fourth. I think it's just because has you know in the biotech conversations. It's just a nice change for the investor and I often say to them. Look you know you have a dollar to put a sports. You know you WANNA make a plan that you just. Don't you know all say gushing fifty different companies. Private obviously most might just don't know where to place raced my that. This is a gaming platform if the liquid dollar when the market setting the valuation versus putting an illiquid dollar tale private investment with a huge valuation. And your may never get dollar back so you know in that way. I feel like we are the most direct sports and buffing out there. Yeah Yeah Yeah. And I'd love to hear your perspective on whether or not you think this is a a recession proof type of investment but one hundred hundred And I've been asked that before so. It's not something that I shy away from. I remember remain Arti- article about ten years ago. That lipstick sales store are during recessions right. Because you may not be taking the big vacation but you can buy a little five to ten dollar tree for yourself you know. Most gaming is premium it's free to play And again when you talk about the things that people won't be able to do recession those bigger investments and you know carbon homes and trips these the little luxuries of light and I think that gaming says in many ways and means by consequences is pretty recession..

"A big college football fan and so You noted that Super League isn't the Minor League and I can think about it in terms of well. Yeah maybe it's not minor league but because they're already is a professional level maybe you could consider us. Lg Oh gee superleague as maybe like the NC Double A.. And just at a very high level it's almost like for an investor. You look at the business and you say well you know there's one nfl there's one NC double A.. Maybe there's one professional sports platform. Maybe there's one you know. NC Aa delay type of gaming platform which could be super league. Which I think is just super interesting? Yeah I mean. We often in the early days. Investors should pay this and minor league all the way through the little league just because in some ways the mental model that we all understand right and I often say you know. Look at. It's it's not just the MLB and minorly give all the tears inside Meyer. But then you've got college highschool literally all the way down to like our team plays in that every Monday night light recreational softball league. So you know. There's all different ways that people manifest their interest in playing the courts at various different skill levels and age level. You know the the professional level is starting to get down blitzed right. You've got activision blizzard. And then riot. Game to have sold limited franchise lot to there to against their games of of Overwatch and League of legends respectively. You've got epic Games which makes fortnight. He's kind of taking a different approach and is kind of more like doing it in a very democratized way. So they took down Arthur Ash Stadium and they let anybody in our kind of like and the world poker tour right. You know the guy from Kansas City. It'd be put the ten grand. He can be things like the poker champion of the world and have a crack the Jackpot. Pardon so in that case you know teenager won a million dollars weekend is the best fortnight Claire There's so many games on the planet that and again there's just zero infrastructure is not listed. Bully that we really felt like instead of trying to declare and by the way right. There's hundreds of game title. Now there's fifty or so that are in the Zeitgeist we're the majority of gamers are but there's hundreds of game titles and who knows what the next four nights going into come forward so our position was the way. Let's create a flexible flexible enough platform that we can play that we can be gained Taliban and we can flex where the player layer darts and if we establish the physical fields bay so we own the court and really. Now we're having to do is use our technology to Taylor the program each and meet the needs of what you know is most wanted in the court so we do see our dogs in many ways. Bill is the League operator. Do we run their variety league summer. Nightly weekly Tournaments that to run over several months. There is a large amount of flexibility in that about but we really felt like if we really wanted to tie up and on that you know a big chunk out need structure that the infrastructure piece was was was needed for real me wholescale. I mean anybody can and by five buddies over to their house Turks go down to the local library all everybody jumped in on their work night. Eh Google docs say just wanted my tournament or I got fifth and kind of run their own little mini tournament. But how do you scale that. I will say that when we were Chasing investors I had one very notable traditional sports team owner. Who said to me at the very start A few years ago you know and you know maybe are the officially governed minor league system of the major so many stakeholders of different games. Control your not really trying to one for you and be trying to control hundred or because there's hundreds of games that's the different. But you know he did they make sure that just one person from Super League comes out and get the professional contract because in a way you only need one to validate that you offer a path. That wasn't available to that young person and we did just have. La Hansa covered this gentleman. We have a young man the blaze from Dowana on a California and he started coming into the League of his mom was driving them about an hour and a half or five each way Because he knew he was a good classroom Rafael player but he needed to like to not only put himself into a more competitive environment and show the soft the teamwork the collaboration that he could handle title the physical pressure but he also wanted a spotlight for that talent and about six months ago. Protein called T.. Talk came to one of our events and Scott at him and he acknowledged full-time professional player at seven. Ten years. Old this impressive yeah. Yeah so I'm curious. Why not just embrace the the moniker of Minor League? Why not just embrace that? And you know you'd fit in well interest in terms of I mean we certainly have said again to declare that you you own that is almost declaring that you own all. It and those sports got it are owned by the publishers. It's one thing to say. Hey think like this and when you look at like what we were doing for League of legends chance we were absolutely in partnership with them taking their top ranked players that we were finding in each of our city bringing together in a team environment and having them engaged in the city battles no different different than like college versus college and the NCWA so so many cases depending on you know what we're doing around like eight title it does look that way but with some of our youth product. I think it looks more like a little big right you because it's more about ten to fourteen year old and it's a different level of play so I think thank you know it. It's more just to be humble about the fact that you know it's almost like it's not like being a minor league trying at the Olympics because it's not that you have one sport. You have dozens of sports. I think that's the part that makes it. You know a little title different. You've got different. Tiers play different ages of play. And you're trying to do it across multiple sports. Not I.

"And starting to prove that we can monetize audit. Hi Sta player. Basically been accused o'clock. Thanks for that explanation. That's helpful. Could you talk just a little bit about the East sports ecosystem system and I know that one of the value propositions that I've seen some of your investor decks has been that Super League that they eh fill a gap within the east sports ecosystem that that is important and necessary and I would just love to hear what is what is that gap that you fill But first and foremost just what is the ecosystem with an e sports. So you know usually in or you know what you tend to have is you have The protein right. That's one big piece of ecosystem. You've got the game publishers. That's it's really the heart of the ecosystem because they're gonNA make the canes which means they only I t and then other types of stakeholders people who run tournament so often those are companies that are work for hire companies that you know maybe an activision pays to have the company takedown math and square garden and run and overwatch or call and duty tournament for them. You then have been news right there in that ecosystem as well and and many of the players themselves and Super League often look at ourselves and said really. If we're doing our job right where a true platform. We should have a relationship with all all of the different party so for the publisher the role that were playing. And you know they're running their professional league. We're all about Marketing to the base. So we're creating recreation or operationally that pass through the pros now. That doesn't mean we're pretending we're the minor league. They're probably because it's much more about social way right. You know I would attempt that. Hire us to run a Pudgy. Mobile Tournament we'll because what the gameboy listeners care about most is acquisition and retention. They wanted to get more people playing a and whoever plays it they WANNA play it as long as possible. Because that's how you mass my the baillieu about piece of Ip Running Leagues and tournaments creates more sticky nasty game titles. It helps you make more friends around it. You know if you are clain League of legends but all your buddies jumped aboard night. Well they're gonNA keep dragging you back before at night right. And so create those social connections and creating that stickiness the titles roll into pick the publisher for the protein. You know we have a lot of the pros or team owners on our cable. So you know big name traditional sports owners like Jeff Bennett and Peter Guber and others Well may directing something Super League and the reason is because if you're gonNA take about pro sports teams you you Kinda WanNa think about. How are we gonNA generate the future fan based on that team that send GonNa drive up franchise value ultimately no different than the kid in? La Who plays as little league is a high propensity to be dodgers fan. You know over time and so We thought a lot about our role to the to the protein when we look is any partner that was obviously cinemark another and then you were thirsty for new ways to bring a new traffic so their platform we can give them a whole fleet of offering for them to run their own types of tournament. Use our platform to bring gamers in their gameplay to run through our platform through their physical venues and then look at turn now. Where's it's really no different? I mean we have a slate of offering that people who WanNa rap tournaments can run if I would say well what's our role in the ecosystem ecosystem or when it comes to the game. I think that would probably wear brand really shines through the most the other thing that we saw we talk you trend right. We saw that. There's a democratization happening with competitive gaming. There's more think games are being introduced on mobile as well. It makes it highly accessible ninety. We need to move to PC to level up and a game like four nights but the fact that any teenager anywhere download fortnight for three on their song. You know that accessibility to competitive gaming is a huge key trend but the other kind of trend that we saw was that this notion of gamy being seen seen as something introverted young male you know I mentioned earlier Sunday. New Girl out we saw when we ran these events how diversity audiences tamers work we we index high on young adult women at our vets. And you ask the question ally and it's because our events have a really high standard on inclusivity ability and good sportsmanship and we pretty strong stand on that when we don't see that behavior well because there's so much bullying women in gaming when it's online all late we started started to kind of be the company that just for the better way to gain and then our job was to debunk. The Myth game was You know fifty percent of power hard gamers are married. Thirty percent of female gamers have higher average household incomes. They post graduation rates than traditional sports fan and well Over one hundred universities now in the United States offer eastport scholarship And so for us we started to really take a stand on not just the back of gamers wanted to come together by new ways to game in social around the gaming data but actually that the the strong Powerful majority of gamers wanted to gain and a healthy positive inclusively. Yeah I really appreciate that as somebody who has two little girls so thanks for that explanation. Yeah Yeah and if you think about it I mean gaining should be a level playing field right. I mean.

It's going to be great learning about your business absolutely happy to be here. Happy to have you and very happy to learn about your a business because it's just a very different business model for me so interested in that but before we get there. Could we just talk about your background a little bit. Where'd you come from? Yeah sure growth in the mid west ask the state kind of did what most people do out of college back. In those days my goal is to go work for a big company so I I started out with Mobile L. and then I moved on to McDonald's and eventually Went to be you know great training and made me sit in a lot of different functional types of roles all in the interest kind of grooming needs to be a generalist and at some point large. PNL owner so my last couple of jobs would be were in London. I ran global. Oh being deceived Business Unit liquefied gas that was Many countries around the world about a three billion dollar. PNL with about three thousand and then my last assignment there. I ran all of our global brands. So you know. BP owns a lot in their portfolio Arco AMT corral. There's all kinds of food can be brands and of course business to business brands as well. And then along the way about Eight or nine years ago. I met venture capitalists. They were coming and poaching executives from energy company. They put a lot of money cleantech and they were looking for people to to run. The businesses is and I think it just seemed exciting to me after all the time in large cap companies but I would get a chance to in some way do something that was very similar more to what my father did. He was a kind of Stereo entrepreneur. He was the first Franchisee ever. I've butters the restaurant chain and so I was used to being out how cold with somebody who was trying to start new businesses scale things that were small and so I jumped up and ran. I cleantech business in the bay area for about five years and then I knew some of the investors and you know early ambassador. Board members to release Super League was about six months old and and they were looking for the first to be very candid. I I was kind of a little bit nervous about it. Because while I could see the eastward space baseless blowing up and timing is everything and early stage companies And I certainly was a game or as a kid but I did at least at first blush I was a little worried. Ah maybe that it. Gains changed so much since I was a teenager and that struggle to understand the market space. But I will. I'll say that I was. I always felt I had really good instincts when it came to creating new ground or transforming them and the lure of the opportunity to not be highly relevant rapidly growing space but to define what really Powerful mainstream brands. You could look like around. That was just something that I could look away from. Yeah that's interesting. I didn't realize you came from. I take that back. I did realize that you came from energy but I didn't realize that you had some cleantech in your background as well and I don't know if you're familiar with any of the previous podcast episodes but I previously covered energy energia so we could probably talk about energy.
"super league" Discussed on The Playbook
"On this episode of the playbook I have an hand the chairman and CEO of Super League gaming and we're going to talk about the difference between working for an enterprise and working for a starter up learn this all in more on the place. This is entrepreneurs the playbook each week I bring you some of the greatest athletes celebrities your host and CEO of sports marketing. David Meltzer Dave Meltzer with yours the playbook and in eastport edition of the playbook. I'm so edited have one of the innovators the CEO and chairman of Super League gaming right here in Santa Monica and hand and and you are an ultra entrepreneur and that's why I wanted to have this interview because so many people Steve Jobs told me when I was the Silicon Valley said debut cannot connect the dots that's Ford and I connected the dots of how someone end up you know the CEO and chairman of really the First Public E. Sports Company and while most people don't even know what East sports is still which will get involved because I love to get your definition but connecting the dots backwards there is an extraordinary background and just briefly because I know you're very versatile can you explain to the entrepreneurs out there how you end up in that great position that was made for you really where did you start yeah sure so you know I kind of exited university at a time where making it was getting a job with a big company and the only big company that wanted me was Mobil Oil Now I couldn't Google at the time what entry level jobs at mobile meant that's unfortunate because it not that I was going to be running gas stations is my entry level job so I ran many gas stations and convenience stores service Bays and Philadelphia I'm from the Midwest originally but I kind of did the more traditional route I worked my way up the ladder and and finally broke through into executive ranks at other large cap companies and then I met some venture capitalists and frankly I think I was flattered they said Hey we're looking for tech CEOS you seem to be somebody that while you have that very old school Urge Company Training You have kind of an entrepreneur entrepreneurial spirit and also my father was an entrepreneur so I grew up in that type of a household and because of all of those things I took the League so I ran a clean tech start up in the bay area for about five years and then I knew some of the investors Super League Super League was about four months old and Stealth and they need a CEO I will be honest my first reaction is I said no I said no several times over the course of about sixty days to the opportunity not because I couldn't see that E. Sports was in the Zeitgeist said it was going to have a huge market potential and timing is just about everything and they stage companies but it took me some time to really understand why I could bring a unique skill set to a space that was very new to me and so I had did kind of work through why I could be accretive to the to the company one of the interesting jumps in my early career work for Thomson Reuters Benia censure than in Samsung but then becoming on myself it was a shock and I think the traditional and I tell people together experience etc it's so it's such a comfort to work for a big company when you made the move not into sports but to the Ardo five years what was the number one challenge that you had oh gosh I don't think I can boil it down to just one there are few things that as I reflect Act back were kind of the dominant themes I think the first one that was so humbling you know when I left bp I had been running a three billion dollar business unit with about three thous and employs around the world all of a sudden I was running a team of twelve and yet it was so hard and I kept thinking why is this hard why is everybody speed taking different speak what how could it be even when I ran gas stations I had hundreds of employees and so what I had to keep reminding myself is first of all and trying to do something that's ever been done before so it's not like taking an existing business and trying to make it better which is what you do in large companies you know you're really starting from scratch the other thing I had to remind myself was there's no infrastructure around me you know if I needed to go find a new CFO inside the company will I knew loads of finance people they were all sitting there as existing employees everything that you're doing inside a small company you don't have an HR team so you don't have all of those fundamental kind of processes and tools to guide you and then I think the other thing that is just the harsh reality of it is I valued the time that I spent in large companies I learned and built an amazing tool kit by getting to sit in different types of jobs and see things from different perspectives but I ever stayed up all night worrying about whether payroll is going to be made and so that level of pressure when you're responsible for a team of people and need to make sure that their families are cared for and was an that that that real time pressure wasn't a quarterly or annual pressure to make numbers it was a day to day week to week pressure and that level of intensity of pressure I had to figure out frankly how to deal with stress in a different way I love the because that is the number one distinction I call it employees overhead when you're a big company it's about the numbers but we don't think about all those little things and then we don't have the person relationship in fact big companies hire someone to get rid of people's you don't have to worry about well the worst parts of having this start up which is to fire people or let them go so but without that experience without that tool kit you would not have been heavily pursued to be the chairman and CEO of the Super League gaming. And I've looked initial all times I don't screw that up but but meanwhile I believe that you'll this journey is about lessons yeah absolutely in fact it's it's interesting when I laughed I remember an executive recruiter when I was making the decision to go the first startup and doing that that exotic recruiter said to me you know and if you do this on your cv you're going to really confuse things you know to go from large company to small company I talked to that same exotic recruiter but I say that because I was at a fork in the road when I left the last startup in in my heart I was saying you just been five years developing this new set of skills of learning this new layer of resiliency you didn't know you had like you know without really be wasted if you just ran back to the security and safety of large anthony because I could have still gone there you know I hadn't been out of the game that long and so I made a conscious decision that no I want I want to give it one more swing I want a us now this toolkit and it is exciting to apply all the things you learned at the last startup in real time to do anything as boldly as you could that's the odd thing and strangely in a large company if you have the right seniority and credibility you've got a massive word up I would always when we would get money and I'd hire more junior staff because I knew that the team needed resources and what I wouldn't do is surround myself with my executive teammates and I did it differently here with the board support it was like let's build the team ahead of the growth so there's all those fun realtime lesson I'm like why is it taking so long you still have to learn to live with and sit with all of those frustrations that you know we still we always knew he wanted how do you explain to your parents what he's sports is what you do yeah it's actually the first time I've had a lot of very varied career I've had the good fortune to live around the world ark theaters we have fantastic brand partners and so a lot of times I've felt like in the early days being somebody from the outside coming in that it was.

"And so the fact that you're adding some cultural and. Geographic diversity may actually go against the notion of really having the best possible teams. Now what do you do right with a in Ajax like this year? What, what happens to that the what happens when you have a team that exploiting really football and is not in the Super League. How can bad team make it to the Super League? There has to be a mechanism to identify teams like a this year in the Loudon into the Super League. This is what I don't like the Super League has been proposed in L is different models, by the owner of Juventus or the whole no or Florentino Perez, from Real Madrid. It's always based on historic performance. I deserve to be there. Right. Exactly. What happens when you have this upstarts I agree with you? And you know. Fica in Portugal was playing some really, really fun soccer. Also. And what what, how what's mechanism to get teams from again? Respectfully called minor leagues into the Super League. I don't know. And just let importantly, how do you get the teams that are falling flat, but have that historical significance. I mean you look at the idea of a Super League right is the problem is it's being the proponents of it. Are these the clubs themselves? And so they're going to structure it in a way that best protects their interests. But you know if the Super League's listed this season with all your traditional historical powerhouses, and Manchester United finishes bottom of the Super League with realms rid, right behind them, and it's like they're not going to be like, well, we're going, you know, we're out of the Super League next time after we rebuild, but they need to like, you know, if you're not good enough, get outta here, and we'll bring in a team like I actually have been fica whoever that's playing. Ng exciting. Soccer. You know, to me, it's a is, is it really? It would be what is the problem that we're trying to solve right? With the Super League this, this is what I mean. Is this just a concussion that is being invented by the Florentino Perez, the Analia as the, the, you know, the, the Glassman's people that have already very well. Stylish teams in this is a way to milk that name. Right. Or is it really about creating super exciting soccer, right? And part of the Super League conversation, you actually started the very well this conversation by saying, even in the Premier League that everybody thinks is a league where you can lose to any team on any given week. There was not much of a race. Right. So how can you create parody within leagues and to me, rather than spending a lot of money and time creating a Super League? I was spent time and money, creating parody within the Mesic leagues and make the message leagues really much more competitive. And I think that would be fun. You know what, what are some mechanisms that we can actually impose on those Mesic leagues across the board to create greater parody by lifting the quality note by lowering the while it was lifting equality across all teams and making the message competitions super exciting and leaving what I think is a very exciting set of games in the Champions League on touch I like the Champions League. Oh, it's gone. No, I totally agree with you. My fear that you'd have a Super League, you'd get the twenty best teams in the world and you'd have all every week every game is going to be like one one zero zero. You know it's. Just going to be these, like tents tactical battles of knowing. To prove exactly, exactly anyway. So there you go by all means share your thoughts on a Super League, with me at max Baril pods.

"So I thought that the FAA Cobb for the British team for the English seems would be the way to still have a presence locally, but I didn't see the Champions League as apparel but it's a good point. And maybe you know the seeding of the Super League if you want to make it a little bit more on court. Married base should be the sixteen teams that made it to the knockout stages of the Champions League. Interesting. And, and that so you start the league, you know, and so they're the Champions League will take a an even added interest in the will be more interesting for to watch now. You know, could you have actually the Champions League three year and parallel with a Super League you're talking about already right players that are so overloaded? I'm I'm not sure that you can sustain that base. This would be the question where I think it would you know that's the balance where it's like all if you're playing a league competition every week. And if you did the champions as well you're you're playing in the mid week, and how do you how do you properly, train for that marathon, if you will, because that would be, you know how do you balance the fatigue? That would be so interesting. Well, but that's why the rich teams will do so much better right. Because it will have like twenty. Thirty players that are, you know, two hundred and they will just rotated like crazy and the teams that are poor cannot make their now that to me, you make that Super League it will really drain that Super League will attract all of the talent, I think it'd be very hard for a player not to be tempted by Super League presence. Right. So I really think that the Super League will eventually suck up an out all the talent from European leagues and. It will be like a like, yeah I league be in all the domestic leagues. It will be very hard to keep think, and interest. I like her much in your proposal right in your first proposal to make two teams and one that goes back to the National League the next year. But you know, I just think having twenty teams of which ten of them come from countries that I mean country's just leagues that are not particularly powerful. Not all that compelling to, to a Super League. Faye? Conflicted abo- Super League. I think you know, I think the parts of the problems of the premise of Super League. Right. I do think you need a little bit of diversity, and you need a little bit of that culture. Clash, right? I mean you need a team from Turkey playing team from Italy. I mean you know, not to in any way of disrespect to Turkish teams. I mean they've, you know, for they're not heights right now, but they've made deep runs into the Champions League before. But I think in any form of Champions League you need to have tremendous turnover because I think if if the Super League exists, and there's not a very real threat of not being in the Super League, or she me of being in the Super League next season. Players are going to get super apathetic, and you're gonna see the best players in the world start to perform poorly, because it's like, well, you know, so I think you need some sort of system that sees a lot of these teams going back to their domestic leagues and therefore those domestically battles are vital to the next season of who's going onto the Super League and who's coming back and, you know, something along those lines because I do agree that a Super League by itself, kind of its own semi closed off entity that, you know, I don't know gets reevaluated every couple of seasons or something like that is, is not in anyone's best interest in the, but it's again it's I agree with you. It's always really fun to have this, like a Turkish team the talian team. Right. I mean for the fans is phone. It's, it's really interesting. And I get the question is, is a Turkish team. As you said, respect to to the Turkish league. But is the Turkish team sort of a punching bag for everybody else in the league? Right..

"I mean, I think that, you know, you're a galley -tarian streak hero, actually is the warring down the luge of quality. I don't think has to be a balance between when you're talking about Superleague. It cannot be Europa league. You're a beleaguered is a geography lesson, right? I mean you go tool. This country said you don't even know existed. Ed, it's okay. It's fun. You know you end up playing but coup and places. Like bed, which might be fun for someone working on TV. But to me, the Super League is not about geography of the reciprocating. It's about getting the best quality teams and if that means that you're going to have in a ten Spanish teams in ten English teams in the Super League, but you have the best twenty teams in the world. That's what happens. And and you know finding a way to multi Baid teams to become the best in the world to be part of the Super League. I think is what makes sense to me, rather than a criterion of geography dispersion in the reciprocating. So I will like bore you know, I go a little bit against your galley -tarian push. And like to be more of an elite kind of selection criteria. So and how does that. How does that evolve from one season to the next? I mean my concern is. I don't think be stagnant. It can't be the same eighteen or twenty teams every season. But and it can't start out. I don't know to me it feels I understand. Yes. The appeal of saying, let's go and get the absolute best teams but to just kind of cherry, pick and say, well, we'll take let's see maybe Juventus, and NOP Alie, and maybe inter-milan from Italy. And then we're going to take, you know, these five teams so we'll take three teams from Italy and five teams from Spain, and five teams from but only two teams from France. It feel so it feels like when you watch kids at the park, and they're like, they're like, you know, I brought the ball so I get to decide and it's like we'll just because you have them, you know, you're really going to face a situation where it's the twenty richest teams in Europe. So why don't we have that be the criteria? How much money you have? That is the thing you know, this is a narrow were, you know, everybody thinks they are above average, like leg begun here. Everybody's smart everybody. Scancen everybody's above average in. That's not the case, right? I mean you're going to have. Teams are above and teams are below average and the Super League to me is about all of the teams that are about average, and it's not fair and clearly the teams are going to make to the top or the teams that most likely are the ones that have the biggest checkbook, you know, my I'm not Super League kind of guy and for the reason why you wanted to mention the risk of the looting the quality of the domestic leagues, but it means the champions leagues goes away, right? You're gonna have the Champions League and the Super League in peril. I don't think that that would happen, isn't it, it wouldn't the Champions League be like the equivalent of the FA Cup. I mean it's just it's, it's been knockout round tournaments that partners the Super League you. I mean, that's, that's a good view. I mean. You know, I always thought that in order to keep some domestic interest the teams in the Super League, we're still play their respective cups in their own countries, is what I mean so that they would steal remain an attachment to where they came from fair..

"But I like to start from an egalitarian point of view. I don't want people coming in. We create this Super League and they say you know what? This is totally biased. You know, look, there the let's let's pretend the Netherlands, where the tenth ranked team but, you know, look at acts, they made it to the semi-finals of the Champions League wide, aren't we included? So here's my. Here's my model number two Willie. Same beginning premise two teams from the top ten leagues. We got those same twenty teams to start in this model again I like the ten. Team. Relegation it feels right. To me. So every at the end of the season, the bottom ten teams bottom half of the table. Boom, you're gone doesn't matter. Now, you know, doesn't matter where you finish compared to your other nation. If both teams from England finished in the bottom ten boom, you're both gone. Now, the ten teams to replace them or will always be the, the champion of each of the ten domestic leagues now. So you get the taint those same ten leagues reinforcing the, the Super League but only with one team. But what I find so intriguing about this give it a few seasons. And I think we can come to an equilibrium state, which will be fascinating constantly evolving, as to what are really the best teams out there because if the Spanish leagues Spanish teams are always finishing in the top, and never getting relegated. But then they're consistently getting one additional team every season, the Super League is going to start to. Really reflect the power of the domestic leagues. And you might find that the Super League does have five or six Spanish teams in it. I don't know what are your thoughts on this one? Kilifi were six teams from one league. But I do like what are you? I know that, that, that, that's in, in your gene, the galley Teheran kind of guy, but let's just from a place where we're saying that Europe. European teams they all have something to offer. And if you have five or six let's say the two teams finish in the top ten right? I mean so now next season, you're going to have three teams if the three Spanish teams all finished in the top ten you'll now have four Spanish teams. So that's how it would over time. One time. Better because I'm gonna tell you. Let's say that rail Madrid Barcelona are the two Spanish teams and Barcelona, gums in second, right to, to Real Madrid. Not second as in first and second. But in your description, just below Real Madrid's ranking. And so you lose Barcelona in the Super League and you actually keep an Andrew lack from Belgium..

And I think the ownership wanted because don't forget the ownership are part of a select crew, including Agnelli out, you Venice, who want this European Super League.

For shake on sore on the ownership. Yeah, let's see. JJ what to watch for, let's get into it. MLS Wednesday night, eight o'clock New York, red bulls in Vancouver Whitecaps. I wanted to mention this game specifically because I wanna talk about the red bulls for a second. They had a great win over the weekend at home against Lanta down a man, from, I think the thirty fifth minute on for denying a goal scoring opportunity, Tim Parker sent off and they go on and they do win. One nil. Did you see the end of the game though between the dust up with Kemar Lawrence and Hector via Alba of Atlanta? I did. I really enjoyed it. I thought it was very entertaining. Can can I first of all mentioned two things before we get to that? 'cause 'cause I don't want to be like someone get on. You never talked about the game. Yeah. It overshadowed this whole thing. The end overshadowed won't of the tackles of the season as the games talking point Joseph Martinez through one on one and he's pretty much rounded Luiz role bliss, and the back for the red bulls.

And they did it. I looked at it. And I thought will losing weight for many people still a significant part of wellness. And so I don't necessarily think I need to throw out the whole white watches brand, which has a pretty good brand equity. I guess and then replace it with something else couldn't they have gone the whole Google alphabet route, and you know, sort of put an umbrella brand on top of whitewashes would that have been a good strategy or not, but he could have been putting on how many money they have.

Indian soccer league's '16-year-old' star turns out to be almost 30 years old
"And is now putting it out there on our show Twitter account after our CBS garage, Mookie sixteen years old there is of course, an age requirement for this league and Moog at the time. Sixteen scoring his first ever goal in the Indian Super League fast forward, a couple of months reported by Fox Sports Asia, something that you probably could see with your own eyes. If you check out the picture on our show Twitter. He's not sixteen seventeen eighteen seventeen at all. He's not twenty one twenty two twenty three twenty four twenty five twenty six. The guy's twenty eight years old, and according to one report twenty nine so closer to thirty. Then he is to twenty how about that. Sixteen years old they accepted as his age, but he's at least twenty eight. And so here is this Indian soccer federation who accepts this, man. Because he's great at football. Forgetting the fact that he has extensive facial hair and doesn't look anything like a sixteen year old. You have got to check out the picture. So I'm not sure who is the sadder sap GRA Buki who's been outed. But for a while for two months, he had a nice run. Or is the sad sap the f- award. Is that something that needs to go to this Indian soccer federation he actually participated in one of the India's under sixteen national camps in two thousand fifteen okay? So three years ago when he was all at twenty five he participated in an under sixteen Indian camp. Anybody think to maybe check out his birth certificate his records medical records anything? I'm not kidding you. He looks nothing like a sixteen year old. Holy cow. You've got to I know that they're looking for a star. Okay. I get it. But this is ridiculous that escalated quickly from team phenom to near thirty year olds. Yeah. You wanna talk about escalated quickly? It's the opposite of the mysterious case of Benjamin button.

"Welcome back to the endurance sports network. My name is Bob Babbitt. Our guest ranked number two in the world. Her name katie's afar with the Super League. And with S how many races? She was traveling like twelve twelve races and then within those races when you're doing Super League, you might do two or three races over a couple of days, right? Yeah. Well, two to three days of racing. Yeah. So that recovering from all of that. What do you? What's your routine to recover when you're doing those types of races? Are just the fact that you're doing an or w t s race. And then you're going to do a Super League the balance of all that and just trying to to keep yourself healthy because you've been so you've been very durable. Right. You've been able to when you're finishing fifth fourth third and second in that t tour each year over four years, you're staying healthy. Yeah. I'm not afraid to go easy. Like, I definitely take my seriously. And I go hard Cambe right for my easy Reise. They're they're very they're cruising. I mean, even today Tommy and I went on a ride yesterday. We did a group ride and Santa Cruz and then today was just an easy ride. And I just told him to go on without me. Right. I just felt like I was signed the. Call for me. So very cool. So Katie for the test event for for our listeners. The Tokyo Olympics are twenty twenty and they usually have a event a year out from the Olympics. Which is the which is a qualifers qualifier begins a qualifying process. What do you? What do you know about the Tokyo course? So they've they've already announced it, and it's been shown I know is not going to be trainable beforehand. So what we're going to get from here. Like know about the course and everything is just gonna be doing research on Google maps and things like that. It's pretty flat. But there's quite a bit of turns on both the bike in the run. It also is projected to be pretty hot. Yes, right. They're talking about that. Right. I think most people are preparing for it to be warm. And of course, it could completely be nothing like that. But I'd rather be overly prepared than underprepared. And. Yeah, so it's gonna be fun is right in like, not right in the city centre. But whenever the Olympics says it's supposedly like the closest one to the athlete village and things like that. So that's gonna be that's pretty me. Will it be a fairly early in the game in terms of when they run the triathlon. I believe so definitely earlier than realize enough the first week or so how hard is that when you're when the event is so late in the games because then you really you really can't get their that early and sort of off site training while there's all this excitement for the games. Imagine you preferring early in the games. I think so I mean, I've only done one to be able to compare right, right? But for real I think one of the hardest parts of are so focused on my race. And then once my race was over. I was kind of disappointed in my result. And then the Olympics was over. So I didn't go to any events, then we went to the closing ceremonies, which is one of my favorite parts and was really cool. But I'd like to just get a little bit more of that Olympic atmosphere. If I get another shot the for this next Olympics will have a new event for travel on mixed relay and you've had success doing the mixed relay is that something you enjoy super excited for the next relate. I think I think that's one of the most entertaining and also very unpredictable events. And I'm so excited. It's going to be in the Olympics. Like just having the well having a relay and then also with it being like mixed genders. I just think makes it awesome. But it's so you really have no idea who's gonna come out on top until the very. End. And I really like it. I think it's one that actually like makes me very passionate and fills me with emotion. Like when I think about it. So I think it's definitely it's definitely one for people to tune into. So and the other thing is the American women what you have three in the three in the top ten in the championship finals. So you've got s- between yourself until there's by by vian Choson. Casper and summer cook, there's some great competition. Just getting to the games is going to be tough. Oh, for sure I mean, the Americans are always super competitive, which is which is really nice. But. How's it makes it really hard? But I mean, that's what you want to have the best team possible. And I think we really have a shot to put together. Yeah. Great great women's team for sure with the mixed relay for folks out there who've never seen it one. I think is going to be amazing television. I think people are going to love it. Explain how how it works because it isn't your typical relay Rwanda. He does a swim. One does a bike run. There's four people on the team in each one. Does a sort of a mini triathlon. Correct. Right. So each one doesn't many traffic on there's two men and two women, and it goes female male female now in order and. Yeah, you just tag off you you. Hi fi basically. Each person does their trash on. And then the next person goes and does their little traffic on. And then it comes down to the final nail. And you've never crosses the finish win. Right. And you you you die when someone you get tagged. You run off the pontoon. Right. You're gonna dive in the dive in and do just like you're starting to regular race. Yep. Exactly. Yeah. Very cool. Very cool. Have you seen any any carnage out there? When people are doing the the mixed relay where people are are a mess it up, and and falling off the dock or any chaos considering this is a brand new sport. No, I think like I mean, we've had the mixed team relay in Hamburg, and I haven't noticed anything. Although I I have to say like when I when I'm racing, I'm not really paying attention. Other people fight us much. It's definitely interesting because like it's like the other races. You can't you can't have a weakness and the dynamics of the race, really. I think it's gonna have to take swim bike runners and being strong in like all of it. And then having the transition, so you don't miss the pack and everything so you really can't give a second won those races. Are so short so Sarah, true moved from she did two Olympics. And then moved immediately into seventy point three I and quickly from there into into iron, man and second ironman Frankfurt's and had was first American and fourth overall in in. World championships. Do you look at that? And go is that something I'm interested in for after twenty twenty. It is I'm I'm still deciding what I wanna do after twenty twenty. I used to say right after twenty twenty time tonight. Family now. Now that seems so close..
"super league" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Stories of the week. Joining us is Bloomberg business of sports, reporter, Eban Novi Williams. Just like every we welcome. Evan. What's our first time? I do like this topic. We're talking about all topics. What do you mean? Even the serious ones. But this one European soccer the Super League and some people are saying, nah, some people are saying like the league's that need these teams to have a league, but we've seen for years now sort of that revenue sharing idea and disparity of how the big clubs get along and make so much more than the smaller clubs, and they need to share more revenue and all that but the top clubs on the top clubs, and these are the draws Evan. If you're watching Saturday morning your NBC when I'm watching. If you see it's Wigan versus Sunderland, baby. Are you hanging around or you need or you need Chelsea you need, man. You man city Liverpool arsenal. Do you only? Stay for the top team. The casual fan knows those brands. I I watch I'm agnostic mostly. But you're right there. Most fans really want, you know, and there's the Super League the proposal here. Sixteen clubs the the five big ones from the L. Plus, you know, you're Byron Munich your Barcelona AOL Madrid Ventas Peres your main. Yes, there's no question that there are clubs that hold up a vast majority of the interest for their national leaks. But and this is the argument that fever has made recently, it's all part of a much bigger structure within I think a lot of American sports fans don't realize this. But international soccer at the club level is very structured structured all the way through the ninth division in England all the way up through the English Premier. And within FIFA. There are you know, the governing bodies, and then there's the confederations, and then there's the leads it's all structured, your your membership in FIFA is even kind of contingent on the structure of the domestic league within your country and has said this this week that teams that play in this Super League if it were to happen. Players that play on those teams might not be eligible for international soccer, and that would be I think a how much money would be out there. If you had all the top teams in the European leagues get together and just by the way, the for our investors out there who listen to this from rain and take a are, etc. Do this with the NCAA. Lobbying for those top twenty two schools and breakaway the football. What else we got bar? Next topic bids do for FOX's regional sports networks. Now, we put in a bid, but they told us get outta here. Raga they bid us. I do. But he I mean here we go. Now, we're into the let's look under the covers a little bit, right? What are we seeing here? We're getting a peek at sue what's for sale some of the numbers behind what these RSN's generate again, hyper local if you wanna look like baseball. They have a lot of things, but have a lot of baseball on these networks. They they are, hyper, hyper, local big audiences local price tag of about twenty billion dollars. And because this is all part of the FOX sale to Disney, and now they had Disney has to divest itself of these are essential to get approval. You got private equity? You've got media companies you've got ice cube showing some interesting. It'd be very interesting where the opening bids come in. And where it goes from here. Many people think by the end, including all the bankers we spoken to and we've said on this show that in the end it winds up back at FOX. Anyway, let's move on. Now. Are we talking about a Floyd Mayweather fight? Oh, my I haven't wanted to talk me with just think we need to close the loop on this. We we rightfully through some cold water on this potential New Year's Eve a couple of days ago. Maybe we didn't throw enough cold water on it sounds like the fight might not even happen at all. They were there participated in a press conference in Japan earlier this week and then the day after on his Instagram account, essentially contradicted, everything that happened at the press conference claiming that he never agreed to a real fight that it was going to be an exhibition a three round nine minute thing. There was never supposed to be on TV just for rich people that wanted to watch it live a mess. This is seems fair to say that this is probably not happening. And if it does happen, it's not happening in the in the way that maybe a lot of people. I thought when when it was announced another night on the bar social calendar just opened up go boo to the four AM on New Year's day. Got to find something else to do was warming up for Texas southern versus. I don't know some other. I'm sorry. I couldn't come up with some directional state. Yeah. Those are some of the stories we're following this week. I'm vexed our interview with the David b Falk endowed professor of sports management at Syracuse university..
