Muscling up to China and 25 years since Srebrenica
"Tom Switzer, he and welcome to another episode off between the lines now today on the program will be commemorating the twenty fifth anniversary of Europe's worst massacre since the Holocaust in ninety, ninety, five more than eight thousand people died in Shrimp Nitsa. The town was supposed to be a U N protected safe haven in the vicious civil war that tore Yugoslav apart instead the civilians ended up being massacred by Bosnian Serbs. Were lightning fast with their superior weapons. They easily overran the lightly. I'm Bosnian government troops and the token full civilian peacekeepers. The UN's Valley to protect the civilians inspired Washington to launch unilateral action against Serbia and end the civil war. Would things be the same today now? That's later in the program, but first defense. Last week the Morrison. Government launched a defence strategy and force structure review now the move signals a major shift away from the strategy outlined in the last defence white paper. Remember that just four years ago in two thousand sixteen. It plotted out Australia's strategic costs for the next decade. But that White Paper has as we know been rapidly overtaken by Vince covert China or that now the new review has promised two hundred and seventy billion dollars over the next decade to enhance Australia's defence capabilities with renewed focus on areas like Saba and spice capabilities and the possible development of hop sonic weapons will be fitting aircraft with long-range anti-ship missiles, increasing underwater surveillance and boosting fuel ammunitions reserves. Now, underscoring the seriousness of the shift, the Prime Minister even drew comparisons to the nineteen thirties and the lead up to world. War Two that period of the nineteen thirties. Is Been Something I've been revisiting on a very regular basis and when you connect by the economic challenges and the global uncertainty. It can be very haunting, but is the money too much or not enough is going to all the right places, and we'll do enough to safeguard Australia from China's increasing assertiveness and is rapidly growing military capabilities. What's the role of Australia's diplomacy? And all of this will joining me to discuss this at three distinguished guests. By skill is professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University Holiday Bites. Thank you good to be here Melissa Conley. Tar is a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. Hi There Melissa could to speak again Tom. And Pay. The Jennings is executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute. Tom No. Can you talk us through the top of scenarios and potential conflicts that the defense review is preparing us for the scenario that the review is focusing on is one involving a high end conventional conflict, so I've gone to the days of stabilization operations in t more Counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan This document is preparing foresight on onsite conflict. Involving countries that have sophisticated military forces. And, of course, the document doesn't say. I don't think it would be reasonable to expect it to say. That China is the problem. But let me tell you China is the problem that is the now neoplasia competitive that way of thinking about when we think about what's adequate in terms of the topic of military capability we need to have. and to does reflect to change. From past years Tom I recall when I started by defense career, we were thinking much more about the risks presented by Indonesia, and the so called low level in cushions in the northwest. Of course, that's no longer features in anyone's strategic thinking. Really it's about China and the risks that the People's Republic is presenting to all of its neighbors in abroad since in the Indo Pacific region and beyond I cabinet crudely putting it some sites laying the groundwork for fortress Australia US sign. This is preparing us to join a potential use LID. Containment slash war against China for example to protect Taiwan Peter Jennings. I think that is it covers a spectrum of possibilities. One possibility which I think is Epson you were in terms of language of the document is that we might conceivably end up having to face military conflict without being able to rely on the direct combat support of the United States, and that's what leads to discussions around extra stockpiling munitions and fuel insightful. But I think in general terms. Yes, the expectation is that Australia. Through its history has been a country that forms coalitions usually have like minded partners, the share the same types of objectives. And the the plan will design the Defense Force. Really gives us the capacity to do that with Rachel Ellis lecture, example, Japan but also with our traditional ally the United States okay bates skill. You've recently completed a review of China's defense capabilities and its recent military modernization, specifically looking at the implications for Australia Wind you expect the Peo- The People's Liberation Army and its navy. When do you expect them to have the capability to project power as far as Australia annual Pacific knives, well in many respects Tom, they already can I mean they have the long range missile capabilities to do that? Know as a from a standoff position launched from their own from their own homeland against hours. But what I think, the the new strategy is looking at is really the development of capability over the next ten fifteen twenty years, and that's by the Chinese own own acknowledged calendar that they would be able to by that time of mass, a large enough capability, both in terms of its long range strike, you know striking from their own homeland, but also bill to project. Project Power passed the so-called first and second island change and being a position to more directly threatened through those platforms Australian security. So you know we're talking ten or fifteen year window here and I think given the time it does take to try and respond to develop the the deterrent and defense capabilities for Australia. That's that's you know that's in some ways a short window. for Australia to be mobilizing in reaction Melissa Tali. What's the role of a strong diplomacy and all these well I think it needs to be growl. And one of the concerns when we look at the deteriorating strategic environment is we think all that's a defense problem? And so when the prime minister launches the strategic update with those comparisons with the nineteen thirties. It pushes US toward seeing in purely military terms but we don't just want to say things in that security lands, we want to think about all of the parts about national power projection, so that's diplomacy and development as well as defense I think if if people thought about it I think what we invest in all three strongly, but that's not where it is if you look at federal budget fifty. Fifty nine billion to defense and less than seven billion to diplomacy and development together the lowest point with ahead in our history and I think we missing that opportunity. If we don't take US seriously, the way that diplomacy and development can shape things in the world so I was struck. Today was a defendant looking at the latest poll on what are the major concerns that Australians have at the moment of the top threats in the world and the first five, a role nontraditional that drought, environment, disaster, climate change, pandemics, and downtown, global economy, and those places where you know military spending isn't going to help shape that environment. So we need to have an effect on those. We need to be thinking much more about what we can do in the diplomacy and development to mind Peter Jennings. What would you say in to Melissa's observations? Because they reflect a certain mindset that that perhaps we should be focused more on non state actors rather than say China for instance well, I think all of these you know threats that have to be taken seriously. I'm and simply because we're living in the middle of a pandemic for example, doesn't the climate change is gone away in this no longer going to present a problem to us. I guess what I'd say. Is that the you know the five things Melissa listed? That were in the featured in the low e Poland terms of popular concerns. Are also the things which could. In different ways late to the risks of conflict escalating in the Indo Pacific region generally so You know my my view, please while I would like to see spending on diplomacy increased. While I. Say Development Assistance is being something which is effectively the United soft in of Australian power, and the military is the hot end of Australian power. I think. The message against all of these areas is that we have just been underinvesting for decades underinvesting for decades, so we're we're all. High fiving ourselves at just reaching about two percent of gross national product, being spent on defense, but that is compared to what we spending in cold or years, which was sometimes between three and a half percent in four percent of rustic product. So what we have grown used to Tom I would say is. Free written on the United. States code tiles of security for for decades. We've dramatically under. Invested in the things that we need to do to strengthen Australia's position, not just militarily, but also diplomat. A now. We're rather surprised to hear the news that Gosh the bill is a lot more expensive than we really thought. It was only if you've got that confidence in the US. and. In fact, the whole trump stories, the story of the Americans really big being fed up with the rest of the world, thinking that the US can fund the bill for their security, so we're going to have to do more and I think we're going to have to do it against multiplicity of areas not. Justin sought the defense organization. We'll some scholars such as you want and James Current from the University of Sydney. They say that this document sounds a lot like an acknowledgement that the US might not always be there to help us out. By are we starting to plan for more independent Australian defense posture I think it would be a wise move to keep that option open when you think of the capabilities that the Chinese developing in which do have a direct pose a direct threat to Australia or could do so. In many respects, the I think the types of threats that you might not expect an immediate or even timely response on the part of the United States what I'm thinking here. Cyber capabilities is a huge priority for the Chinese. We already know what they see the sort of capability. They can wield against Australia and that's not the sort of thing you can expect a kind of cavalry to. Lead the charge from from Washington to come to Australia's defence slowly long range strike capability on the part of the Chinese capability. They already have in which are going to continue to develop. which could threaten Australia down the road now? These are capabilities that I think that Australia's going to have to develop their own defenses for. They can certainly do that with United States, but again it's not necessarily the sort of threat that we would expect some sort of traditional ally joint response not to make it well. Some of are in listeners will email me and they'll say that if Uncle Sam struggles to police. It's own CDs. Melissa. How on Earth Can Uncle Sam Police? The Asia Pacific region in the face of a rising China. What's your sense about us staying power in the next decade or two in look? It's difficult One of the things that strategic update looks at is more threats to the global rules order, and unfortunately the you know, the US is part of that. the US is not along with the strategies interest on things like global trading system, and a number of international issues like global health where we would say you need to be supporting. A Global Response that said I don't think the strategic update will be read negatively in. Washington, it's my guess. it very clearly couched in terms that I think the US will lock about Australia contributing more and having more self. that could be seen as a statement that we think that the US might not have outback, but can also be seen as something that the US has been for for a long time. I particularly liked a few elements of the update things like making sure that we have. You know material ammunition You know that aren't going to be disrupted. Buckle supply trying having more capability eight industrial cut suffering capability here antiques fuel reserves, which is not as long sane as an issue for us, so I mean those are things that are worth investing in. Regardless of US resolve because as we've seen from COVID, we know that supply chain can be disrupted very quickly and easily, and it's worth having eligibilities. Cepeda Jennings bite skill and Melissa Conley Toilet and Melissa. The Pacific step up last year. That realigned Australia's development budget to deal with some of the strategic challenges posed by China in the Pacific Do you think it goes far enough? The step up was followed recently by strategies new International Development Policy Partnerships for recovery, and that's made it very clear that strategies focus should be on the Pacific and also southeast. Asia including. Indonesia and team August. I think that has a very clear statement about what we want. In the region of being entrusted trusted development partner and influencing those societies that we think positive for four region. Again you're going to. You're going to say you. Hear this from me all the time, but again the problem is that we not really making much invasive lunch, so partnerships for recovery head no new money it talked about the massive challenges that covered as as creating for for the for the Pacific, and for for our region broadly, and the only funding announcement was that we're going to repurpose the money. We would have spent on sending Australian. Volunteers in scholarship holders. And we're GONNA use that so I I suppose I. Feel a little bit with all the areas, not actually include district update in that as well that what we've seen through the foreign policy, White Paper and International Development Policy through to to the defense. Strategic Updike is. We talk about how. how? What a time! These these frosty leaving a contested difficult awful environment that we've now got to leave in and the Dow L. Easy Times over, and then we say, and we're not gonNA. Give any new money so I mean the defense announcement is essentially just that we're going to continue to you know, extrapolate out the money that was planned to be spent in the twenty twenty six, and we're going to extrapolate that out to twenty thirty terabytes skill. Do we risk getting into a bidding war for influence in the Pacific? I don't know if it's a risk. If it is a risk worth worth taking. I mean obviously the Pacific region is so extremely important Australia's future. Both for for defense reasons for regional engagement for diplomatic reasons, developing reasons and the like. so It's quite possible that we're entering in a more competitive phase with China in this. SITES WRIST BYTES I'm talking about more the budgetary concerns he because in the wake of the Corona Virus Crosses. There'll be serious limits on how we can spend on these things scholley. Yes, there is and party left to be be developed for that, but you know when you're talking about your own backyard. I mean I I. I don't think it's the kind of country that can simply. Pretended it's by itself getting back pay to Jennings to the region, generally in the rise of what. Angus Campbell is of the Defence Force he's talked about the rise of political warfare, the idea of grey zone warfare things like cyber attacks, economic coercion influence operations that fall below the traditional threshold of war. He says we need a whole of government response to it. I, you seeing that whole of government approach happening in Campbell, or is this Manley focus on defense and the spy agency so far Peter Jennings. It probably is focused on the national security agency's Tom. That's not too surprising because you'd expect them to sort of pick up on the risks I. But General Campbell is right. It does need to be all government is. There's a whole lot of things happening there that simply cannot and should not be done by defense organizations. and. I think that realization is slowly dawning. Along as both of the speakers have said that actually ladyship comes with cost of infrastructure is going to play that role, but you know, give you a small example of this we. We have lost the ability to broadcast into the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. In a way that we used to very successfully over over decades to give us the capacity to do that. We're probably talking about you know that. He million a year forty million a year, which sounds a lot of defend. It's nothing if you're in the Defense Department. Let me tell you. But you need to be able to do things like that. To be the truth teller in the region to actually tell the region that there are alternatives to Chinese Communist Party authoritarianism I think that's what's needed with responding to this grey zone on threat. Is Actually to be the truth teller. In this part of the will and getting our system in Cambridge used to that reality to understanding what needs to be done. To starting at different type of conversation with our region. With our own people for that matter that that is a sort of a psychological change which I can see happening, but we're not quite yet. There's a bit of work still to be done to get to that point Melissa. Conley Tyler. Is, just responding on that. I agree entirely with what pitcher saying on on broadcasting. It's a small investment, such a an increasing influence. It should be Brian and I hope that did that's being seen. I think having defense voices. I will help a lot in a banks, seriously I'm but just went. When you ask Tom Balaton host government and what's happening there? There are some really good examples, so for example win. This Pacific step pop started an office of the Pacific was established in that apartment and tried and each job. He's to be that coordinating body, and it's bringing together the. The defense, the development and the diplomacy in a way that he's gone to maximize our influence. and I've noticed this a lot more discussion about that that three. How do you bring defense development diplomacy communities together? I'm involved in initiate the Pacific. Four Day and I think a lot of people not talking about what more we can do for that that joined up coordination to make the most about national instruments by skill. You're an expert on China. The elephant in the room of course is China doing need to be careful not to overestimate China's military strength. What about the weaknesses? Exactly right I mean you have to know your enemy's weakness as well as their strengths in the case of China, they are undertaking enormous reforming organization effort. They're pouring billions of dollars into new capabilities, but there's a lot of things we need to recognize I. Mean One is that the Chinese have not fought a shooting war and more than forty years. They are have no. They have zero experience in high end combat against a serious. Adversary, scenario, so that's not to downplay them, but to understand that they've got enormous obstacles to overcome that day. Themselves acknowledge that they themselves. No, they have to overcome, and that's why we had this window that we've been talking about. A fifteen to twenty years. to try and develop capabilities to get in front of the kinds of things that the Chinese want to bring to bear around. Around, twenty thirty or twenty, thirty, five, twenty, forty, paid-up Melissa to be continued. Thanks so much for being on our in. Thank you, tell my pleasure. Thank you, Tom. That was paid jennings. He's executive director of the Australian strategic pulsing suit by skill professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University and Melissa Commonly Tyler. She's a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. These between the lines with Tom Switzer. Coming next, we're going to replay a version of a segment from between the lines. I 'cause commemorating the massacre of Bosnian Muslims at shredded Nitsa on the eleventh of July nodding ninety. Five twenty five years ago this week. More than eight thousand people were killed by Serb forces. It was the worst massacre. Europe had seen since the Holocaust. Serve softening up Trevor Nature for the army's final push into the town. Town of course was supposed to be a safe haven protected by the United Nations, but the civilians ended up being sitting ducks as I woke Larry. Hollingsworth Remembers I. Myself Feel Devastated and ashamed I was there with them? When we told them that it was a safe haven I watched. Many of these people walk in with the minimal possessions into shreds, knowing that it was a safe haven, and now they're fleeing out because we've let them down, let them down to the extent that within dies. About Twenty three thousand women and children were deported, and about eight thousand Muslim men and boys left behind where executed and buried in mass graves. Now, reports from the time described, frightening scenes stiffen overawed from medicines on frontier. Speaking he. Loading some of the children and women into buses, but there's no indication as to where it was buses, going with seen some horrifying streaming, going on women and children going into the buses being taken away from their family This was going on with a lot of crying a lot of panicking. The slaughter had been planned carefully and executed with precision. All the wall Dutch. Pace is literally stood by, and did nothing indeed even when the Serb assault on Srebrenica was imminent. in-command is still rejected Kohl's racetracks. Positions. Pope John Paul. The second declared ribbon Nitsa a defeat for civilization as media reports begins to reveal the scale of the unfolding tragedy. The UN says nine hundred thousand people are still unaccounted for. About some became clear as government soldiers emerging from the forest in central Bosnia, told of horrific massacres at the hands of the Serbs one young. People executing them on spot, but this didn't come out of the blue. By the time this massacre took place the civil war that tore the former Yugoslavia. Repot was heading into its fourth year. More than a million people have been displaced, and the world became familiar with a new term ethnic cleansing. So? Who is to blame for these well? Let's start with the United. Nations from ninety two to ninety, five shrivel Nitsa was the world's first union declared civilian syphon. It was supposed to to her aggression. It was supposed to aggression and set the scene for political negotiations to end hostilities between the Bosnian Serbs, and Muslims, but the UN soldiers in the SIPHONS. They were bedeviled by problems. If you declare an area safe haven in the name of the United Nations. Nations if you tell the people if they are safe in the name of the United Nations you have got to put the troops on the ground, and it's no good for politicians say yes, we go for safe havens, but we're not gonNA put the troops meanwhile the Europeans vacillated and equivocated failing miserably to cope with across at its own back door. America was also reluctant to get involved as then President George Bush senior explained in Nani Nani to. I? Something because I learned something from Vietnam. I am not going to commit US forces until I know what the mission is to the military. Tell me that it can be completed until I know how they can come out. You have ancient rivalries that have cropped up as as Yugoslavia's dissolved or getting dissolved, and it isn't going to be solved by sending in the eighty second airborne, and although on the campaign trail that Ye Bill Clinton pledged to reverse the appeasement of that bushes of Belgrade as President Clinton allowed the Balkans to bleed for three more years. French President Jacques Chirac was moved to declare quote, the position of the leader of the free world vacant. Trinite Sur changed all that having done nothing the before during the mass killings in Rwanda Clinton was galvanized into action, and crucially he cut the United Nations out of the Decision Chine on August thirty Washington led a night bombing campaign against the Serbs the NATO action began early this morning. The harsh light of fires and explosions coloring the night sky. Some people watched the bombardment from their houses, but after more than ten thousand deaths here in the last three years, most Sarajevans had given up any hope of outside intervention. Last night it came on a scale which could yet change the course of this war by the end of not ninety five sixty thousand nine hundred troops, including twenty thousand Americans were on the ground in Bosnia. Pace was declared. The BOEKEN's wars ended only because the US finally acted. He's President Clinton in November ninety five my fellow Americans in this new era there are still times when America and America alone can and should make the difference for peace. The terrible war in Bosnia is such a case nowhere. Today is the need for American leadership. More stark are more immediate than in. In Bosnia in the years since the Mexica Europe inaction was heavily criticised, and the US was held up for its global leadership in particular for its unilateral humanitarian intervention. This is when the US secretary. Of State. Madeleine Albright said America was the indispensable nation, and that idea would fade into the justification of the Iraq invasion in two thousand and three as a war of liberation, but he's a question with the US intervene. If the shrivel Nitsa massacre happened today from the standpoint of twenty twenty, we might ask if the era of US unilateral humanitarian intervention is well and truly over.

Sports Week Morning True or False
"It's sportsweek and today we've got some true false for I'll say something and you have to decide if it's true. Or False? Heater I one. In Baseball, a homer is victory dance.

First Switzer rushing to the other side of the top of your mouth and keep brushing. It's false. There is something that baseball called a homer, but it's not a dance. A homer is another word for a home run. In baseball teams compete to see who can score the most runs. Runs our points and you can get them by going from base to base. You can get across all four of the basis of once. That's a home, run or a home. Switzer rushing to the bottom of your mouth and brush the molars the way back. Your next true or false? In football when a referee throws his hat. It means that he's really angry. So. Is that true or false? Thumbs up for true and thumbs down for false. The answer is false. In, football referees throw their hat if a player goes out of bounds. I'll explain that you after you switched. You're brushing to the other side of the bottom of your mouth. Brushed the inside, outside and chewing side each tooth. In sports a referee. Someone who make sure players are following the rules. When a player breaks a rule, referees do certain motions to show. which rule was broken. Football when a player steps outside of the playing field, it's called going out of bounds and referees show by throwing their hats.

"He eleven million was guaranteed, so that's a lot of money to cut a guy in a second year, so I don't think he's going to be cut this year, but like you said UH, fast McDonald. The parts next year and maybe Eric. EIB Braun. Is the number one then you definitely need a solid number. Two and that's Jesse James He's definitely, would he? Would he would? I could see him coming back match base a few years ago. He came back a second time. Cre- Brian and Tony. Do you actually think they will use Switzer right this year? I personally. That's up to ben and use them right. They did not use them right last year. Any was hurt. But. That's I will say this about Switzer the entire thing I will eat my words if I'm wrong and I will say it on the show and I'll I'll say hey. You guys were right But I think Ben knows how to use him more than anybody in they do. Have that rapport so I? AM, a follow up to that is Donald. Nolan what stats would switzer need to put up? For everyone to accept him as a backup, a wide receiver or returner. Tony. What do you think? What would we need from him? You at least need touchdown. Say. I'd say for him if he's going to have a role in the offense and somebody that wants to go to from time to time I think would have to be as. He would have to get a lot of. He'd have to be wonder. Leaders on picking up. Third downs. You know like third down receptions. It doesn't have to be a lotta catches. Fifteen twenty, but if a lot of those catches are critical catches and I think I. Think you know that would. That would be something that I think. We would give him a valuable role for the team, but but again like I said they can't. They can't just keep on there because he's been guy and and try to try to. Twist themselves a Nazi. Again to get him to ball. He has he has to do it on merit. That's that's absolutely a true Dallas cleanly another great contributor show. Switzer son's like Candy Bar By the way congratulations to Ryan's they he and his wife. Welcomed a child last week, too, and that's that's wonderful and One of the things that does really annoy me. When any steeler has a great news. Then you look in the comments and you had an article about this last year. But you look in the comments and someone saying well. Why are they focused on football instead of? Come on. I break congratulations though. The that's awesome. I love it and I just read on the website. Yesterday on behind the curtain on Com that. Derek want is welcoming a Another child to I believe with second and the great thing about that. Is that something more for TJ and JJ to fight over because they fight over showering that kid with. Uncle love if that's even a word a word. But the yield. They compete to be the favorite uncle and I am. That's pretty awesome. steelers thirty three says my season tickets are one thirty nine J. Save Seep for me. steeler thirty-three. I'll come hang out with you. Like Vanik Matt Roberts like Vanik. Why didn't they use him more? we talking about, Vance. Is that a TYPO and I'm not making fun of you. I'm just I think you're talking about Vance there. Ben Rothlisberger knows how to use Vance. McDonald and Vance McDonald will be. Effective as long as Ben's there as well to. It looked like Mason. Rudolph was GONNA use the heck out of last year when he came in that Seattle game. Vance had a great game in week two and that's yellow game. It's just. I think when Vince when Ben was gone last year. Nobody, really knew what to do. Including the offensive coordinator, which is just A. kind of ridiculous, but bottom line to it is. They got to use their weapons and Ben knows how to use them. These guys right so you could really count on that. As a break was Brian. That's what I thought. bryce sixteen o seven. Oh One says. Yeah, that's. A lot of my friends call me Brian to. Known Calls Me Brian on the show. I became bad G AND Brian if you're like me. You know growing up in the in the eighties. You could never get something. Everybody spelled your name wrong. Be I N. Bryan made a cooler to be Brian. with his summer of sixty nine, and that reckless album, and it made it a whole lot lot cooler. So we're getting. GET READY TO WRAP UP. Everything here Tony. We cannot do it without all these. All these folks on the show. And we really appreciate everybody coming in with their opinions, I realize. We're we're talking about Ryan Switzer? I'm hoping and I think all of you would agree with me that I I'm hoping that That I'm right in your own in this one, but if I'm wrong, I'll say it, but wouldn't it be great if I he came up huge in huge a big way, Matt. Roberts said sorry. I meant Vernet. And I. That's. No problem there I just wasn't. Computing on that. The steelers have a hard time, Tony. Would you agree? When they bring somebody in late in the preseason or early in the season of peppering them in and. It's almost like they They need a full preseason. We saw that with Vance, McDonald. We saw that with with. Even Switzer when he first came in You gotTA. They need have that report and it seems like the that a newcomers if they don't have a full training camp, just don't get all the action you think they would. Vernet ended up leaving. He didn't like the way he was used. either. He didn't like the way he was used in. Seattle either I hope he likes the way he's used in Denver. We'll just see, but once again we're to wrap things up. Thank you, everybody. We can't do it without the without the live chat. We love you all whether you agree or disagree with me whether you think it's the worst topic ever you still. Still came in and checked it out and We had a lot of fun with it so I appreciate it.

Be sure to tell a friend Tony. And he lasts lots. Yeah, I mean. It's it's an interesting topic. A lot of people may not think it's sexy, but sometimes when we talk about the quote, unquote sexy stuff like that, either so it's a long enough season, and either all questions that are gonNA have to be answered. So what's wrong with talking about them? So I thought it was a pretty good topic, and it's going to be interesting to see what they do. It Ryan Switzer and anybody has topic suggestions I mean. I'm always scratching my head trying to figure out what to talk about so Let me know, too? But yeah, Hey, we appreciate all of you and whether you're a number one on the roster, your number fifty three. Bottom line your important to steeler nation, and we appreciate all of you and we appreciate everybody in the live chat as well so Tony I, appreciate you. Take us. Out My.

"Receiver for Ben on third down. Something like that so I messed up. I really messed up and this is why. Because I should've saved this topic for next week's homer the hater. Sunday show with Lance. Williams the electronic football is not equality receiver. It's just something we're always going to disagree on, but here's the thing in lance and I told you at the beginning that. Lance was going to disagree with me if he was on here and I'm glad Lance. I'm glad to have you on here. Here's the thing. You could make this guy work as a piece of the puzzle in as long as you have those other guys and you're not using him as a number one weapon. Like they did against doing last year, you're going to get something good out of Ryan Switzer, and it's going to equate to a w if he is used correctly and that's the bottom line. Somebody said that he's just. He's a generic player. He's someone called him. You know just like Vanilla, but I think great flavor by the way so I know. Didn't he say lineup in the Backfield to several? You know a lot over the last his first two years. Here I think I. Remember seeing him lineup in the Backfield, so I mean not that he would get. handoffs. As a safety valve out of the Backfield, that might be a role for him as opposed to are running. He you would think he would have sure hands than your typical running back. That's definitely that's definitely it, but there's one thing we want to talk about, and we'll talk about this next. In that is what we're GonNa talk about is Robert. Sassafras brings this up. Is he says Deontay is an all pro. Punt returner, which he was second team, all pro and now. Here's the thing I would rather see Janta Johnson as my punt returner for the Pittsburgh steelers, but there's your double edged sword. Here's the RUB. He gets hurt. He's gone, you lose. One of your top weapons at wide receiver, and we talked about that before when we were talking about Antonio Brown. So we're talking about Antonio Brown. How I had a buddy every time Antonio Brown was back to back to field a punt. He was like I. Hate that they do this. I hate it. I hate it and you know i. get it, but. They were trying to keep him healthy, and are they going to do the same thing with the Andre? Johnson Tony. I don't think so right away. I think I think my common likes to let his young guys earn it a little bit before he gives them that preferential treatment exception. Maybe I think. On a young guy. I remember him really giving that kind of treatment too early on, but I think they're going to. They're going to make him earned that right away, but but but the great thing about about at the onset. Johnson is is. He, he is a weapon right now that I think that's exciting and as far as as Ryan. Switzer if he does make the team. It's going to have to be on merit otherwise. They're going to be tying themselves in notch trying to find find a role for him so. If he if he is. The fourth or fifth receiver on most Sundays in, is that that guy they they Sent back there to. To. Make the fair catch when they don't want to have a cost turnover. Then I'm okay with that, but to your point I. I don't know. Why such why they were telling him to be cautious last year because if you remember to. Especially the first game against the browns. I I was actually impressed by what he's able to do on punt returns kick returns to in that game, so I I don't I don't know what what what happened last year in that regard because it shouldn't. Unless you some kind of injury that we don't we, don't we? We are not aware of. I just don't understand. How is production on returns goes down fifty percent, so that's. That's just something that that me and makes me wonder if it's just like. Hey, just fill the punt. Get the offense out on the field and don't worry about it plants. He's giant. Eagle brand cornflakes. Oh my gosh man! I love it. There's just some things we're not going to agree on. So that's what's GonNa. Make our show so much better when I'm teaming up with Lances well. I'm this guy I'm thinking that. It lands asking. Could you take off the field for Switzer to get snaps? There's packages and you have. You don't. When you have this much talent, and I'm including Switzer in that talent, and we're about to talk about the receivers that are going to make this team, too, but when you throw in four talented receivers, throwing Switzer on top of that then throw in the fact that you have a fullback now the catch the ball of the backfield endeavor watt, and you have two very good. Pass catching tight ends. Production, stats are going to go down. All the way around. But it's how you use them. Would you rather have thousand yard receivers? We talked about this yesterday. A bunch of thousand yard receivers maybe two thousand yard receivers in nobody else contributed, or would you like to have a lot having very good numbers? And weapons all over the field that nobody can be double covered, and that's what is happening here now if you have him if you're in a situation where you can sneak Switzer to convert a third, three or third in two or something, sneak him on the field when they're worried about everybody else. He's GonNa catch the ball. So. That's the bottom line. It's how he's used. Last year was an aberration all the way round you thousand nineteen was crazy. Because your offense coordinator was on the shelf and I know Tony You might disagree with me if After listening to your show, but there was no secret offensive coordinator, but still I that's something will kind of disagree on, but you had the fact that Ben Rothlisberger wasn't out there. A lot of There was no connection and there was no consistency this year. Ben Stays healthy. We've been talking. We've been talking about that the entire ever since he went down. So. That's IT and Dennis agrees with me. And I love Dennis agrees with me. I agree with Brian on that. Let's give defense fits in you really can you don't have to be sexy to be effective?.

"Younger guys having having trouble you know learning the system with the details as Mike Common which I. So, that's what we're looking at with Ryan Switzer for as much as everybody. Does not. Everybody of people disagree. I don't WANNA say everybody 'cause. There's people actually agreeing on here you want him to go ahead and advance the chains. You want them to help out, but if he's your number, one option like he was against New England last year. You're going to be in trouble. says it safety valve for Ben no other quarterback through to them and maps thing if you have a safety valve, but you. You've gotTa make sure that you're throwing it to him that he's advancing the chains. That if you're going to throw him short, he might not be getting there, so that's. You gotta use them right, but if you use this guy, right, you can have another weapon to be very valuable now i. Don't really want to say weapon, but you're going to have a guy that is going to be a nice piece of the puzzle with everybody else you have. Because, look, it's going to be hard to double guys here. Tony It. An interest really is right. Oh, yeah, yeah, well like you're saying. Excuse me I'm having technical difficulties. As you're saying, you know. A A safety safety valve out of the backfield or not tobacco, but you know on third and short somebody can get to the sticks. You know five yard out. Over the middle something like that so. From that perspective I mean they're gonNA. They're gonNA have to find a role for him if he makes the team I. Know that, so it's GonNa. Be Interesting interesting to see what they do. I don't think they're just going to. Keep him on the roster in that have him just just sit on the sidelines all year. Ah, he's GonNa have a Roy somewhere whether it's as we talked about. The sure handed, punt returner or You have C- to.

"Because if they wanted to have an electric return man. They would have kept the ONTA- Spencer. They would've found a way to keep him last year right, but they went in the direction, and they started the season, not with the Johnson but with Ryan Switzer Ryan. Switzer did get hurt now i. you know the you know the nickname. They call him Mr Electric Football He. Doesn't move around a whole heck of a lot, but something happened there. He was moving around quite a bit. In two thousand eighteen. Did somebody. Tell him just be conservative with it or did something happen? Let's look at these stats to I'm going to bring these upright here. If you look at his punt returns, he had two hundred and fifty two punt return yards. Thirty, of thirty returns. And he averaged eight point four yards. Now. He only had twenty nine on eight returns last year, but the average is what you really need to look at. And the average was three point six the year before in. Dallas has rookie year in Dallas. It was eight point eight right though nothing really changed until two thousand nineteen. And a young player. This guy's a young player. So why did that change? On kickoff returns as well I mean, he went from twenty five point zero in two thousand, seventeen to eighteen point four, not a dramatic jump. Not Dramatic Change. But I'm thinking. There's something somebody in the organization wants him. To just hold onto the ball and get the Hey, get the ball in the hands of Ben Rothlisberger or whoever the The steelers quarterback is that includes last year. Are you smelling something there Tony? Are You thinking the? Am I, is it my brain, burning or onto something here when you? When you matched his twenty eight hundred numbers with numbers when he said when he was with Dallas eight point eight eight point four maybe last year it was more susa defense was so dominant neighbor so compromised the quarterback position after the first couple of games. They had younger guys in there. Mason in Devon dodges. Maybe he was getting the orders from Mike Tomlin or Danny Smith. Just be cautious because. You don't WanNa. Make a critical mistake. You don't want to turn the ball over deep. Just you know you have a great defense Let let the defense key in the game and and try to win it at the end, so it could have been that could have been. The the general line of thinking last year when it came to returning punts. Well. Let's talk about his receiving game as well now. You saw in that opening game against New England last year. Ben Roethlisberger went home a lot. He didn't move that much he was that game was a mess. Right. The game was it was rough all the way around? Really wasn't He was more rushing guy. He doesn't drop the ball. He catches. It doesn't move that much, but he moved more the year before. So last year he averaged three point four yards per reception. That is fifty percent less. Than what he averaged the year before at seven point zero. So something happened was the quarterback change, but he wasn't moving much. In Game One game two with Ben. So! Something was going on. Maybe he was still hurt. But And Dennis Sheridan one of our great contributors I. This I don't think it's fair to compare anyone stats from last year. You know. I agree with you on the receptions. That's what I'm saying. Because everything is completely, we were. We were defending Juju yesterday. You know we were defending Judy 'cause. You can't compare staffs from the year before. But what? I'm what I'm saying even with BANDANNAS. He was not moving that much, so I was wondering if. This is direction that he's getting. Because you can't I mean you can compare punt returns. It's. It's fair to say that you can go ahead. Compare the difference of Punt returns. Kick off returns and the reason you can do that is because. You don't have a quarterback. Throw to you. So. That's what we can compare, but you're right on the receptions. Something went down, but he does have the ability, so that backs up. Were saying that he could make this team on his own merit because you did not. Nobody really disliked him. Until two thousand nineteen. Nobody wanted him gone now this entire off season. Everybody wants him gone and I. Don't think he's that bad I. Don't think you want him to be the number one guy which he's not going to be, but what you do want of. Switzer is someone that could catch the ball on third and two and advanced sticks. Just to get another afford ounce. Tony what are your thoughts there? Where does where does rain Switzer fit in on this offense I think he fits in but where? Well. One way looking at it is you know. Injuries are inevitable right, so if one of those the top four guys goes down then. Who would rather have in their a an unknown or somebody who who ben's comfortable with who you can go to as a slot receiver for a game, or or or or you know somebody you can bring in at five on five receiver sets so. If you. Look at it that way. He has been around the League he's not. He's not an an older veteran, but he is a veteran. Nagas is what his fourth year fifth year, so? That's somebody who's been around. Okay, he is his third year with the steelers. Now he knows the system so. At the very least he's a dependable guide you can, you can bring in if somebody else gets hurt or if somebody..

"That's four guys right they're you know they're going to make the team because they're not gonNA cut obviously Juju in Washington D. on. Dante Johnson and Johnson or Klay full so I. It's just a matter of. How much they? Do. They like the on Kane. IS HE GONNA? Show out this year this summer if he does and there's five right there then it's just a matter of. They keep six. Do they keep six receivers and they do that? I think he has a really good chance. as far as part returns and stuff like that I think deontay Johnson's The guy there, too, so it's it's GonNa be a little more difficult for him this year, but at the same time he does have been as his. In his corner and He like a lot of people he was compromised last year by the lack of Ben. So you know. Maybe maybe he can, he can. Make a a comeback. This show this summer training camp now I, know of Lance Williams was on the show. He would definitely disagree with me on this, but this is where I'm going with this I have a few few facts. Go ahead and back me up on this, so the reason I'm saying. That Ryan Switzer is going to make this team on his own merit. He was traded to his thi this team for a fourth rounder on his own merit. Merit. The thing about him is when he first came to the Pittsburgh steelers back in two thousand eighteen. There's a lot of excitement because you didn't have a guy. Returning kicks. You didn't have a guy returning punts, and when he first started returning punts and kicks. We caught them the Jitterbug or a water bug back there. He was jumping all around, and he was gaining some yards. And if you look at the stats, the stats kind of back it up. So I'm wondering with this. What happened from year one year two? So what happened is I'm wondering if they told him to be more conservative. As far as the return game goes now when the thing that you could bank on for years for I would say about. Maybe fifteen years. They like more steady hands. On the kickoff team and on the punt return team, and so the reason I'm saying this. Do you remember? Who was the kick returner? In back in the Super Bowl in two thousand eight, when the steelers beat the Arizona cardinals. Who is the main kick return man? I believe it was Richard Huntley was returning kicks. punts they would often put a mot all day more back there for like you said for for for the shorthand, and he would often just just call for fair for catches. It was not Richard Huntley. Zach Eisman says. Stefan Logan Logan was actually here only one year. It wasn't Randall l either he wasn't back yet. It's a guy. The Guy Actually scored a touchdown in that super. Bowl Gary Russell number thirty three I feel so silly I. I I was thinking I was thinking but I got I got the name wrong by a decade Richard Huntley and. Number Yeah. He played in two thousand. The off season, you have the exact same number. This guy was a big man. He went about two thirty now. Do you also remember the days of nausea? The Dump Truck Davenport? He was returning kicks right. You know you had a lot of guys. Returning kicks. That were more sure handed instead of burners on this team. I think I could. Honestly tell you. The last burners would be Steph on Logan and maybe Allen Rossum but Allen Rossum was a little older as well, too, but he still had some speed, and he returned for the steelers as well. So that's what I'm thinking that they still might consider him. Assure handed alternative to returning kicks and returning punts because there's also the thing that they you don't lie. Antonio Brown was the the return man for so long especially on punts. It's because he was the only alternative Tony. Would you agree with me on that fertile for the longest time? He was I I I. Remember we talked about it every off season they had to find. A guy to replace him, because he was valuable as receiver he was. There was a time there when he was the best receiver in the NFL and he was also returning punts for for the steelers so. They eventually replaced him with. Rogers, although he wasn't nearly as Dangerous, but yeah I, they didn't have an alternative for the longest time. Rogers was not effective as a man. You really was not. But he was a little more. He had sure hands, but they had to go away from Eli Rogers and bring back Antonio Brown and that's something they just did not want to do. So, when they brought Ryan Switzer in they felt like they had that guy and I am wondering at this point. If, they still think he's that guy. In there not really re worried about their return game as much, but just not turning it over because you're not gonNA, get a turnover. Very often from a guy like Ryan Switzer. PUT ON THE GROUND Right yeah. Yeah he! He might be the new when it comes returning punts that maybe the guy they sent back there when. asserted veteran guy now. He's been in the League for a few years. Somebody they? They throwback there when they when they want to Make sure they secure the ball and not worry about advancing advancing.

Switzer can make the steeler roster on his own merit. So, what does that mean that means? His friendship with Ben. Rothlisberger is not going to matter. He's going to earn a spot now. A lot of people are going to disagree with me on that and I have no problem with that That's that's what we do. We disagree friendly. It's where your sports bar. That's what we are. It's a chance to argue Tony. What are your thoughts on Ryan Switzer? If. You asked me this a year ago. I probably would have been more positive, but based on last year.

Kishore Mahbubani says COVID-19 won't stop China's rise
"These days for China there's been an economic slowdown a trade and technology war with America. One of the few issues of bipartisanship in today's Washington then there have been protests in Hong Kong global criticism of Beijing's treatment of the Muslim minorities not to mention Western anxiety about the role of Y in those five G. networks and don't forget the allegations of Chinese interference in sovereign states across the region. Add to this. The outbreak of corona virus or covered nineteen and silently some pundits and they mainly in the West. They're asking whether we're witnessing communist China's Chernobyl moment what do you think well one distinguished intellectual who profoundly disagrees with all this skepticism. He's my guest today. Kishore Mahbubani is distinguished fellow. The Asia Research Institute at the National University of Singapore a former ambassador to the UN twice and a former foreign secretary of Singapore case. Your has risen several influential books on Asia and the rise of China the lightest one is called has China won the Chinese challenge to American Promessi as published by public phase in New York Keisha. Welcome back between the lines. My pleasure there'd be back now you've heard all these. These dial warnings about China and as I say they mainly come from listeners. What do you disagree well? I think it's absolutely certain that the return of China to his place as the number one economy in the world cannot be stopped because from the year one to the eighteen twenty or eighteen hundred of the last two thousand years the two largest economies of the world were always those of China and India so the past two hundred years of Western domination award. History have been an aberration. All aberrations come to a natural end and China's return cannot be stopped. And that's absolutely set. You say in your book that if Xi Jingping does not put in place San Succession mechanisms. America could win this geopolitical contest and bear in mind just a couple years ago. She overturned legislation on. Term Limits for presidents essentially might himself later for life. Some of these critics say that. How does that promote good governance for China and a sound succession mechanism? That will allow China to Rosza Unabated well I would say that the history of China has taught them when they have strong central government. The people benefit a lot. When this week government they suffer a lot and you look at a hundred years of humiliation. That China's suffered from the first opium war of Eighteen. Forty two right until the establishment of the People's Republic of China in nineteen forty nine. The main reason why they went through one hundred years of humiliation was because they had weak central government so what Xi Jinping has given to China is once again very strong central government this is an asset for China. I think he's going to be around as Vita for a long time. And as long as he's around. I think China will do very well. Okay will you say that this geopolitical contest that's broken out between America and China? That will continue marathon. Rice does that mean that Beijing and Washington a doomed to confrontation. Well the the reason why. I'm producing my book now. Has China one his precisely because I want to avoid a confrontation in my. I think it's absolutely unnecessary for the United States and China to get entangled in this confrontation because at the end of the day the primary goal of the United States government is to improve the wellbeing of the American people than the best way to improve the well being of the American people especially in this call. The crisis is to work with China and not work against China but of course unfortunately the United States has other goal and is the primary goal of the United States is to maintain primacy in the global order. Then that will lead to confront To leading American proponents of containing China. John Shaw. The University of Chicago Have Stephen. Walt whom you quoted approvingly in your book about the perils of American Hubris and exceptionalism but on China I disagree. They say I've been guests on this program and I've made this point Measham and casual. They say that a rising China does indeed threaten the regional status quo and Washington moreover will and should go to great lengths to ensure that China does not dominate the Asia. Pacific your response. Well I think the question is whether or not they can both live with each other In the region if if the United States by the way you know all the countries in this region many of them one the United States will remain strong player in this region. I think it'd be good for the region to have United States. Remain as strong Leah. By United States can remain a strong player without on fronting China. He can remain a strong player by working with China In in in many critical areas. And frankly if you ask the countries in the region What they would like to see they would like to see a strong China and they would like to see a strong United States. But they don't want to be forced to choose within China and the United States and we'll get to this question about choosing later on in the show but I want to stick with America. There is a consensus in the region. That America should stay but Foreign Affairs magazine. This is the Distinguished New York Journal to Achieve. Contributed this month. It faces a range of top. Foreign Policy Thinkers. They're all weighing on whether or not the. Us is in the process of global retrenchment The cover of Australia's leading Foreign Affairs Journal. This month is is called can trust America So Am I right in saying you? Don't think American showing any signs of withdrawing from Asia. Now I see no signs at all America retreating from the region and And I think that very strong as you know policy in America is to some extent made by the president but is also made by the deep state and the deep state has a very strong consensus that they got to remain very strongly Industry region. So I don't see an American of withdraw anytime in the near future but I do I do argue that the United States has got to behave differently. With China net once had One tenth the size of China's of America's GNP retailers but today China's be GNP BB. Dems is bigger than the United States. So you behave differently. Was this animal. What about that? Animals DASA more assertive. Now in your book and you listening to Katia Mahbubani. We're chatting about his new book. Has China one in your new book as show you dedicate a chapter to the question is China expansionist and you say basically China wants to respect global rules and norms but let's face it. It has ignored the ruling from the UN's Permanent Court of Arbitration. That was at The Hague in two thousand sixteen. The high concluded for those of you listening who've forgotten about this this is four years ago. Chana's conduct around the Scarborough Shoal and the Spratly islands it was illegal and let's remember Beijing has continued to build up a military prisons on artificial Alan's at drive out local fishermen and in the last few months case. Short Sean has been bullying Indonesia over the Natuna islands. How is all this respecting global order? Well you know one point. I emphasize said there were people talk of benevolent. Great Powers Turn Benevolent Grid. Power is an oxymoron. So as you know the United States today has not ratified the law. The Sea Convention. So in in some areas as China emerged behaving exactly the United States. The United States would never accept going to a tribunal to judge whether or not the United States valid or invalid claiming any area in that respect. China is behaving like the United States by just as the United States. Most of the time respects most international rules and conventions China. Also most of the time respects most of international rules in confections in many ways. China's behavior and America's behaviour is very similar in the international arena. Your critics would say that. China's maritime climbs a contested by the Philippines Malaysia Brunei Indonesia Vietnam Beijing has antagonized nations log New Zealand Australia with cyber attacks and and political interference. Nightside casual these. Not Diplomatic Wins for president. She hasn't he made some big mistakes. Well I it's it's it's interesting. It's always the rest. That is screaming very loud on this South China Sea When was the last time you heard a very strong statement from militia All of all of Philippines On the South China Sea. Why you're seeing behind. What is happening behind the scenes is a lot of diplomacy that is not reported in the Western media. Now I cannot comment on the side of the tax on Shelia and New Zealand but I I believe it was Edward Snowden revealed to us that if you live in today's world you can assume that anything you put up. There is being monitored completely by the National Security Agency of the United States. So I think what the world needs is new conventions in the cyber area and the world should work together do agree on some set of rules for what you can or cannot do in terms of cyber hacking spoke with the New Zealand professor. Anne Marie Bridie last week on this program and she told us about three investigations into Chinese interference in politics that a currently underway in New Zealand. But we WANNA go there now and finished your point. I was quite struck by a law in in your book. He sure well. You talked about the Chinese reluctance to conquer Australia quote. Future historians will marvel at the fact that even though Australia is geographically close to China. It was physically. It was physically occupied in conquered by far more distant British forces absolutely true. I mean if China was an expansionist power wrenching. Her travel all the way to Africa. He could have easily gone to Australia. Additional Australia. Remarkable accident of history. That Australia was colonized by British forces than not Chinese. I mean future. Historians will marvel. The anomaly visits Tom Switzer. On our in 'em I guess is Keisha Mahbubani the former foreign secretary of Singapore and President of the UN Security Council. He's now a distinguished fellow at the National University of Singapore. We're talking about his new book. Has China one now for some of Iran's listeners in Venice Matas whether your overstating China's rise and I WANNA put to you this very rule weakness in limitation surely because many analysts They argue that there's a ticking bomb in China it's low birthright and the aging population and this is the argument that will reduce the workforce and could potentially break social security system. How would you respond to those critics? Oh that's absolutely no question. That China faces a lot of serious Internal Challenges. Because you know it is to instill a developing country It's CABBIE DYING IF I get it right. It's still about ten thousand dollars. One-sixth debt of the United States has a long way to go before it becomes fully developed country. And that's precisely why China wants to focus on its internal development and not get dragged into an all-out geopolitical contests with the United States. So you notice that China wherever possible is trying to avoid getting entangled with the United States even though the United States clearly is challenging the United States challenging the United States charging China In many

"During the live look and we were talking about the greatness of Barry Sanders and it's still one of my favorite quotes berry Switzer was the head coach at Oklahoma, and he reportedly allegedly told his defense, whatever you do do not hurt Thurman. Thomas Thurman. Thomas was the all American running back at Oklahoma state because if you heard Thurman Thomas Barry, Sanders then comes in and Barry Switzer wanted no part of Barry. Sanders Barry Sanders actually underrated Ican ended up with twenty thousand yards. I, I don't know if you remember his college career, but at Oklahoma state he was, I think he had five. Five touchdowns in in a game three times in his last year, he rushed for two thousand yards. He was just, he was phenomenal. And then going into the pros going to the lions didn't go to a good team suspect offense, but berry still I thought would have ended up. I think if it was important to him, he would have stayed, but he was he. He just fell out of love with football, and he would be the all time leading rusher. And I think Emmitt Smith knows that, but berry berry is wired differently than almost any other athlete I've ever been around. Never wanted attention. Never wanted publicity. It's weird that, and I said to him because of your style, the way you run, you're going to get more attention. You draw more attention because of the way you run very few of ever run and we'll ever run like Barry Sanders. But he is one of the more humble people I've ever met in my life. And I got to know him his last year at Oklahoma state. I went to his press conference when he announced he was going to go pro, his car broke down while he was headed to the press conference. He shows up. He just got a flannel shirt on his look like he's stepped right out of class or something. And when he went to Detroit, I went to do a Sunday conversation when I was at the mothership and I go into his house, these got a couch in a TV. He's got nothing else in. He goes, what do you? What do you think of what I've done with the place? I said, what did you do to the place? He said, why? I got a great TV and a guide great couch, like in his mind, what more do I need. And this will give you an idea of of berries personality. And how frugal and humble he is berry goes, he calls me, I'm thinking about buying a new car. Now he's a millionaire. He says, I'm thinking about buying a new car. I said, what you know what? What tell me. He goes thinking Honda Accord, four door. And I go now I'm waiting for him that is this the punchline. And then I said, well, and I realized he's serious. I said, well, you can afford it goes, yeah, you think so. I said, yeah, yeah, I buy it. I buy it outright. I'm you. And he goes to I, you wouldn't finance it. I go, no, wouldn't finance it. I'd buy outright. It goes. All right. He was so proud of that Honda Accord, but that's just sort of summed up his personality. And even when I was there, we were his rookie year. He said, I don't put the camera on me when I'm around the other players because I'm a rookie and I haven't done anything. He was really concerned about how he was viewed by his his teammates there, and then we did the conversation. He was a tough conversation because he he was goofy, didn't always answer the questions..
