Luke Brown was is aware that not much is being expected from your buck buckles in twenty twenty. I think the one thing that we've talked about private privately. The same thing I've talked about is just the fact that whatever people externally say. We really don't care I care what our group thanks and what our staff thinks and our baseball staff. Thanks and we'll kind of deal with those and you know I think. The players had really good conversations amongst themselves. Mike I hope he doesn't take that Lou. Brown thing any further and have a cardboard cutout of Bob nutting in the locker room, saying you guys stink. You know it may come to that because a lot of people also probably unaware when when the negotiations were taking place between the new general manager. Ben Sherrington and Derek Shelton they were delayed because Shelton had a guy on the other line about white walls and he wanted to. Get that taken care of. Agreed to be the pirates manager. Bet You know I hope they go. Eight and sixteen could bring out the Bull Durham lolly gagging speech. We are. We would eight Larry it's a miracle. It's a miracle. Bench Sherrington general manager finalized his thirty man roster yesterday, sixteen pitchers and fourteen position. Players of the parts kept sixteen pitchers. Harrington said in part because they're not sure what they have, and some of these guys and in part, because they're not sure what roles might suit these pitchers best. I guess I would say it's not specific to roles I I know. Sheltie shared that. I think in terms of the Rosser decision itself probably more about Holding onto is much pitching as we can, and giving ourselves more time to learn and give been giving guys more more time to develop and get you know, get competition against Major League hitters also and You know we're GONNA. We're we're excited to get into games we'll. We'll continue to learn more about that group, and whether that's you know obviously. In a couple of weeks we may have a roster decision, but the the decision how roles evolve. would say is less about. How many pitchers were carrying and We're just. WERE WE WANNA?

"The puck Os and the cardinals must grove Scott up break his. Routine with these guys have. Have early, and then you know breaking down a little bit later against the cardinals particularly this year in which these division. Games are so important rob. Yeah and you know I honestly. Look Sixty game season. You know We're going to have something. Pre game show tonight that the last three years nine teams. Would have made the playoffs after sixty games that did not so. That's a pretty sizable percentage. I mean. That's you know. Pushing forty percent of the teams that that would have made the playoffs. That didn't make the last year. The nationals who won the world series wouldn't have made the playoffs after sixty games. So you have a chance to me the chance for the pirates. The offense should be okay. You know it definitely needs to take a little bit of a step forward. To emerge, you know as a top seven or eight offense in the League to me. Starting pitching is going to be really interesting, because there's there's talent there Joe Moscow. Finish the season strong last year. Chad cools a talented guy. We've seen Trevor Williams for a full calendar year. He's one of the best pitchers in the league. Mitch Keller is a guy that was ballyhooed as prospect and you know. Can this new regime sort of help him? Live up to being a you know. James and town type front of the rotation type starter. I'm really eager to see Joe Strove pitch because he looked great in the exhibition game. You look great and spring training before that you know if the pirates are going to do something I think it's going to start with the starting pitching and that starts tonight. Yeah, we had. Just. Wanted to ask you if you had a well groomed ball field by your house somewhere where the Blue Jays could play maybe. Yeah that is interesting I mean. No, I got I got more you.

How are you hope you're doing well I mean. Can you believe it? Finally? We waited and waited for baseball, and it is finally back tonight. The cardinals and the pirates. Joe Must grow all right so the first question I have for you, Kingere the forty man roster. Finalize a any surprises in your estimation. No. nothing that jumped out I, mean they're you know the the big question was? Are they going to have fifteen pitchers and fifteen position players on the thirty man active, until they have to whittle it down eventually twenty six, or is it going to be sixteen pitchers in fourteenth position players? I just think right now they're. They're still searching for their bullpen, so it makes sense to carry the extra arm and and. Away, we go well. You know the big reason why we're here. Of course COVID, who I'm sure you Bob Dining probably thought that was a shortstop. They had in the The Minor League system I'm not worried about Kobe. He's coming along just fine. He's only nineteen. He's still on the farm system, right? But. The buck goes, have they? You know they they've taken. Their share hits in that regard. Polanco Kiana Kelly now we learn has been dealing with it. Socrates Breda before that and the other guy's name is escaping me, but Ki Ki. Brian Hayes Blake Cedar Yup Yup. Relation to the other teams, how bad have they had it? Such a good question I really I really don't know I think some teams you know. I, I would imagine they're probably in the in the middle of the pack. I really don't know for a fact I will say this though you know. The pirates are relying on certain guys and then a Gregory Polanco. It's really important to the middle of their lineup, trying to give Josh Palsson protection and. They were able to be a decent offensive team a year ago and you're Kinda hoping political big year, and then you mentioned the the bullpen I. Think is the biggest question mark for me heading into the season and without county Keller. Who is there closer boy. At least you felt like. Hey, we get to the ninth-inning. Now. You have some questions you know it's. A little bit of the amount of players, but for me with pirates you know with a couple of guys are really counting on it. It's the quality as much as anything else well. WHAT'S HE GONNA? Do there I mean? Is it a creek? Who Does he call on? Is it just going to be Bhai Committee once again? It seems like. If.

Finally ACDC released Blah back in Blackley album that would change their career and their lives forty years ago, tomorrow, July twenty, fifth, nineteen, eighty, it was their seventh studio album and I was singer Brian Johnson, who replaced Bond Scott following his death from alcohol poisoning after a drinking binge five months earlier, February nineteenth nineteen eighty AC. Can you imagine that quick of a turnaround today I mean. ACDC had made a big dent in America with their previous album, Nineteen seventy-nine highway to hell, and some of the ideas for songs on black came together on that tour. Here's AMAS young and the early stages of songs that would make it onto back and black. Malcolm had a couple of ID's specially the back in black with the title track and I'd been fiddling around with little bits of the. You shook me, so you know there was a few of the ideas that we had in place, so it sort of started. The inspirational stayed especially back in black in Malcolm had these ritzy said he couldn't get out of his head, so he had him on type in e. played them to mean he said. What do you think I fought? Hey, you know the great. Right after Bon Scott's death, they did consider hanging up, but we're convinced not to by family and friends and. As we just said wasted no time in holding auditions Johnson, who used to front the band? Gordy one out and the band went into the studio in Nassau in the Bahamas in April and May with producer Mutt Lang, who produced highway to hell, though some of the musical ideas were born, while Bon Scott was still alive. The band opted for some fresh lyrics in the album's title. Track and cover were attribute to Bon Scott. That was our way of Saloon bunged sting. We didn't want to draw job a tragedy, so we've figured that was the best tribute we could do, so we made black as the mark of respect when somebody passes away, that was the idea of was a lot of people actually at the time when we first said he wanted.

Yes, if you get tired of strange client base ball this weekend, there will always be. Yeah, you didn't like the aesthetic of last night's baseball debut. I enjoyed it and I'm going to be watching it. I found every attempt to make it feel normal. made it feel so much less normal like there's no level at which oh? There's a cardboard cutout of a baby behind mookie Betts. His head. That doesn't make it better. Right. Some of the crowd noise is a little weird, but I don't know when you have it on Canada in the background, which is how I had I watched the first couple of the nats in in the Yanks, and then I just started doing stuff and had it on, so it was nice to hear the crowd noise, and whatever sort of the ambient sound they were pumping through the broadcast. but I still think that what they should do. Just cut away to shots of games from the past with people eating in the stands so every time they got away from the people sitting in a Ballpark, having a hot dog. Either that or recruit the field of dreams, ghosts get the old ghost ball players. They can't. They don't have to worry about the virus. Well, one of the cool things that they did last night for the dodgers game was they had a cardboard cutout of brody Stevens a comic who? Passed away so technically. They kind of did have at least a cardboard ghost but you know I guess you can just pick whoever you want and make a cardboard cutout or give them money contribution, and they'll put you behind home plate.

They're probably not I, WANNA. Go on record as saying. I think very few AIRBNB owners are peeping toms, but it occurs to you at some point that you don't really have any way of knowing that right like you just WanNa say. If anyone's monitoring me right now. It's not going to be anything good. Just go about your business wherever you are. In the film to couples rent a fancy house for getaway weekend.

Somebody moves behind the camera. This is like that. He's got some ideas. He has some things to offer that he's good at. He doesn't necessarily have all of the tools just yet. His cast Allison Brie his cast bails him out. The rental is probably worth watching. As you know a nice quick, little thriller and if nothing else a good reminder, you don't need to take another couple on your vacation. It seems like a good idea at first split the cost, but someone's going to be traveled grumpy. You'RE GONNA. Get annoyed with them, and if you get stopped by a murderer, you're giving them twice as many victims. That's no good..

"Do you remember the night that coveted nineteen got serious and North America? It was early March. Donald Trump gave an oval office address to America about the new corona virus. At the same time Tom Hanks announced he'd tested positive. And meanwhile a basketball team was being pulled off the four. Utah's no longer on the floor. The thunder no longer on its bench. The officials have gone back to walk through fans here in the arena. I don't know what's going on. We don't know what's going on has been postponed also this astounding and unprecedented story continues to evolve the NBA is suspending the season. I say that understand. Now this is gonNA sound stupid. But we'll all that was going on. I was watching it happen. I was drafting a fantasy baseball team for the upcoming season. And now because I can't bear to turn them off I get notifications every week. Reminding me to set that fantasy teams lineups. There are no lineups. Baseball is a fantasy right now. There are no sports and beyond my stupid fake team even beyond all our collective excitement about things like watching the Toronto Raptors. Try to repeat. The absence of sports has an impact. There are hundreds of thousands of people who make a living directly or indirectly from those games all work but also on a more psychological level and this age of streaming and on demand and specialized curated playlists live. Sports are one of the very few things left that millions of people experienced together at the same time and the absence of that has an impact to a sports. World hasn't stopped. It's actually oddly busier than ever. Just in very different ways. They're huge changes coming to these games. Some of them will be temporary but some of them will be permanent. And someday when you watch a game on TV or go to a game in person or even if you don't give a crap about sports if you find downtown in a big city on a game notice those changes. When will that actually happen? And what do they look like? Nobody knows at least not yet. But we will talk to someone who has been working on finding out as soon as claire catches us up on what you need to know right now. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Canada has now topped forty thousand cases of covert nineteen with two thousand and seventy four deaths. Jordan he'd Rawlings and this is the big story Richard A writer for the athletic. He is also the CO host of writer's Block on Sports Net five ninety fan in in Toronto and he is also the CO host of a new podcast called sports on Fos sports podcast much and a pandemic with no sports. Hello Richard why? Don't you start as somebody who's just completely immersed in the world of Sports By telling me what you've learned about sports since they've vanished. Well that's a good question. I think first and foremost it just re emphasizes the importance of the escapism in our lives. It's not to say that prior to covert nineteen. We didn't recognize and understand how important sports is. But I think it's sort of human nature that when you lose something that you love when you lose something that is very close to you it really reinforces in reminds you just how much you've missed it. The interesting thing about this so far is that the literal time it's been gone isn't long. I mean we haven't been a year away from sports. We haven't been five years away from sports. You know depending on sort of your locale or what your sport is. We're looking under two months still but it feels longer. That's kind of the interesting thing with this. That it feels like we've been missing all the stuff for such a long time and it reinforces just how important and you know how how impactful it is all our lives and no matter what your sport is. The likelihood is it impacts you in some form or matter on a daily basis whether you're watching the live event where you're reading about the Levin Bet. Whether your you know on facebook or twitter instagram talking tweeting or posting about the lot. Then so I think that's for me. What the absence of sports is Is reinforced is just how central a figure. It is in in so many lives were. Yeah they were Sports are so integrated into kind of the rhythm of our daily life. And I'm not just talking about you know you. As a as a sports journalist myself as a sports fan but Just the way kind of life ebbs and flows are a constant and. I guess what I want to know is what happens in that billion billion dollar industry when all of a sudden there's a huge vacuum and there's just nothing well a lot happens And it really depends on what area you want to focus on. You know for a the business part of the industry you're seeing furloughs layoffs and tournaments and or jobs that will never come back. Rogers Rogers Cup just announced. It's cancelled and tennis. Canada just furloughed all sorts of people. And it's their intention to bring people back but you just don't know you don't know what the what the future holds think about all the teams that Think about all the people who work either for a sports team and just think about like well the vice president or the public relations person or the or the player but all the jobs that are associated around sports the bars and the restaurants that do business on game days people who Who Work in the businesses in the neighborhood outside of ballparks vendors who provide sports teams will whatever they provide so the reason. It's a six billion dollar businesses. Because there's so many ancillary parts connected to it so very few people are not impacted by it at least culturally or psychically. But then there are millions of people who are literally economically impacted by it and those are the ones. I think about because the reality is all the jobs. Don't come back you know. My Hope. Is that most do? But I'm a realist to know that all won't what have we learned about? Who's getting taken care of an? Who's not since this has begun in the sports world. You know I've seen A lot of athletes and and some teams reaching to take care of their employees and then some outcries over other teams just letting everybody going letting them fend for themselves. Well usually learn who you know or again to sort of have these larger takeaways. At this point I think is impossible and probably a little arrogant and that we don't know what the world is going to sort of hold for us six months from now what it doesn't terms of a Sort of a micro focus is it does tell you what what institutions are community minded. What organizations are trying their best to save jobs versus doing immediate cuts? But I would say honestly for the most part. A lot of these sort of questions won't get answered for for months. We don't really know what it means because we still don't know how long how long were in this abnormal situation. And they're going to be parts of North America that returned faster and parts of North America. That a more conservative don't and we don't even know the impact of of what that means you know on a personal note. I support listening to the medical professionals and scientists and if that means we have to stay at home longer means that at the same time. I'm very fortunate where I have a job where I'm able to do that and still navigate. You know there are other people who hands so. It's just very hard to to answer that question organizations that really care about their employees. I think will do come up with the most creative solutions. They can't ultimately save jobs. Preserve Jobs. I wanted to ask you about the big picture. I but now on On more micro level you're doing daily sports radio and now You've launched a sports podcast at a time without sports What the heck you guys talking about. Well you'd be surprised. I mean if you have enough creative in And Smart People. And I'm not referring to myself on that is sort of behind the scenes people and producers technical directors etc. You can come up with stuff like the the fact is like the Nexus of sports and covert nineteen is is pretty significant from what these leaves are thinking now to what players are doing to athletes who are connected to medicine right now and some of the more remarkable things that that they're doing everybody essentially within this has a story that's kind of why they're still a lot of content to do. It's because every person in the sports world in some ways impacted this you know. Roger Goodell and Rob Manfred are impacted in a certain way commissioners of Leagues. And they have to figure out what the how to navigate the next path where. Hayley wickenheiser is impacted differently. Someone who's a former athlete but also an emergency room doctor? So you know has to sort of navigate that world so at least for both the sports on pause as well as writer's block I I have

It was kind of incremental. You know people were paying. There's a little bit more urgency around it and then you know everything's just kinda come on like a tidal wave and You know that's roughly I think How the kind of manifest itself through populations is You know it's sort of a little bit of a creep a little bit of concern and then all of a sudden. It's too late and things kind of spiraled and Guy Can't really recall anything. Released a sports where the things and news and developments have come so quickly and rapidly and suddenly described the scene at the NBA game that forced the suspension of the season because that seemed to really be the tipping point. Four all of this very interesting. I mean The Oklahoma City Thunder were hosting the Utah Jazz. There was some concern that there is sort of like the Star Center for the Jazz. You know was ill. He'd been kind of exhibiting signs of I think he'd been tested for strep throat was exhibiting signs of being unwell and he was given a task for Kobe nineteen I believe the day of the game and he so he never went to the arena was home but had turned out the team's hotel but had that test been negative that he simply had a kind of a more common kind of flew his expectation plan was to play the game and the So the two teams are floor. The music is playing. Crowd is in the building. You know the the tip is approaching and right around the time when the ball would've been going up and and all of that you know one of the The team medical officials for the Oklahoma City centre kind of came running out of out of the back of the building onto a data. Deficient gathered to coaches and my understanding. Is that the player tested positive for covert nineteen. You know those are responsible came very quickly. After that it was determined they would have to at least have to postpone that game. It takes them a while to figure out how to relay that information to the crowd they did and you know within the hour almost of that decision the NBA realized that had to suspend operations for the possible. What had the discussion around this virus and the MBA or even to this virus and sports In the bigger picture being leading up to that what kind of measures I were being taken. What were people considering? Because I got the sense that this escalated very quickly you says correctly you know the NBA has gotten a lot of credit for being very proactive and a little bit ahead of the charge as a release the other North American sports. I don't know if she claimed. In this instance you know we saw how rapidly this escalated in parts of Asia and Europe and is of last week you know the the first kind of acknowledgement of the virus by the NBA was You know kind of an internal memo that was never made public but kind of out saying no players Daffy be conscious of Of you know sort of shaking hands and kind of dropping slapping hands you know. Go with a bunch of bumps fist-bump when your own or don't feel obligated to sign autographs. So he's doing about the players. I mean themselves from you. Know actions with the public The next stage of that but it wasn't taken seriously and I certainly saw players can figure doing that and The only really making a big deal of it. Which goes I think the way while people were kind of looking at it as recently as a week ago. I believe it was on Tuesday that you know the lead and and in conjunction with the other Major North American sports panel putting New Measures. About how the media would interact with players. You know they're out to keep a certain distance between players during interviews and that there wouldn't be no more scrums I'd access everything would be kind of a press conference type setting and again. That was all seen as a preventative. Measure to keep the players distanced. So that's Tuesday on things by this time we're really escalating. Really think was sort of you know where where a lot of news is really coming out and the pictures getting more grim and so on as of Wednesday afternoon the Board of Governors of the leaks representatives from each of the franchise are kind of represented. The owners of each of the franchises themselves were on conference calls in hand and trying to come up with a plan and at that point the plan. Wise try to keep playing games but maybe one to limit fans or maybe role you also game is supposed to be in Boston. Concerns about it out. Great maybe the game can be played in Boston and Detroit. It'LL BE BOSTON DETROIT. Sorta thing road game until Home Game. So you know again. It's sort of like half measures but when newly found out a player was positive then they their hands were forced because if he kind of you know the NBA is such a small community and says his travelling circus tall man. You know they they are kind of bounce around the continent gone and you. Do you know somebody on twitter. She did an exercise like this. And show that if you only need to go back is about five or six days and you see all the players that go bare played against and then all the players. Those players played against any almost entirely covered within a five day span. Certainly ten days so at that point you know it. Writing was on the wall that they you know they couldn't simply couldn't continue because you don't know who else is in fact good and it's turned out one other player it's been infected with the jazz and all the teams that have been a better played the jazz including the Toronto Raptors in the past ten to fourteen days are now kind of are now being tested so tell me what that means for the raptors in particular because they played the jazz and what it means for sports in Canada well as it relates to the raptors. I mean you know it's just a kind of a complete one eight You know they played in Utah Monday night and I was sort of the end of the longest folks up to the season and you know the raptors were to form their short handed goals. Whatever reason not to win the game getting there on the road and played the four or fatigue and all the rest of it and You know their usual kind of plucky courageous thing and won the game and and came home on the on a red eye. Charter came after the game. So theraflu red eye type flight landing in Toronto early Tuesday morning and I'll be right and they weren't scheduled to play again until this coming Saturday. So they had a few days off which is right there in the NBA schedule that you got consecutive days off and You know a couple of the coach. Nick nurse had had his own into this charity scheduled to the hotel to in our other player charity events and all that went off without a hitch around nine thirty pm ever getting -CATIONS and The of what's going on and by you know by midnight a number of players are good number of the players had contested at a Toronto Hospital. The all the traveling party with the Raptors so broadcasters medical personnel seems security personnel You know there's a party for fifty people They all were required. They've been tested. My understanding most have today and so they're just waiting for the results of that. I think my understanding is should take twenty four hours from the time the test and you know and that'll dictate next move. Seventy this in the media term advised to Not only quarantine but isolate. So you know. It's sort of isolate themselves within else but the expectation is you know about your community or your home you know and just kind of hope for the best regarding the outcome of these tests. But it's you know it's a it's a massive development as it relates to the
Dodgers complete deal for Betts, Price
"Hairston junior of course former major league player world champion with the Yankees And of course the dodgers address analysts for Spectral Sports Net L. A. Jerry. Welcome to the PODCAST. How you doing very well very well? Yes on in Wednesday afternoon four o'clock eastern time. The big press conference at Dodger Stadium. Yes mookie Betts and David price coming to Los Angeles. I know you got to like train and your thoughts. I'm extremely excited. You know the dodgers the last few years. I've put themselves in position to possibly win a world series. It hasn't happened but I really believe adding guy like Mookie Betts in my opinion five baseball ballplayer all in all the major leagues. Excellent top of the order hitter. You know I think this is. He's kind of like the generations. Ricky Henderson excellent speed is they're gonNA NOT GONNA steal a hundred thirty basis because nobody does that anymore really. Nobody did that with ricky played But he gives you speed at the top power A great outfielder in right field. And you put him in the lineup with next month cody bellinger Justin Turner And so on and so forth this is arguably the best lineup and all of baseball and then add to This dodge rotation healthy David Price. Who Brings in championship type pedigree and I really believe? He's GonNa be pitching with a chip on his shoulder. I'm having something to prove the season so I'm excited for the dodgers and the city of La. Jerry dodgers needed a good right handed bat. That lineup is loaded with lefties. This bets bets is going to help that isn't he. Absolutely you know anytime you get a chance to Have the best players in all of baseball. And you're on your lineup. She'd He'd be in your lineup. It's GONNA help but you're always looking for balance and you know like you mentioned. The dodgers were heavy left handed The last two years with Jock Petersen Jason Cory seager cody bellinger Max money. There's nothing wrong with having left handed power but you WANNA kinda offset that a little bit especially with the emergence of Gavin Luxa the new Start second base going to the dodgers have. He's a left handed batter. So you WanNa make sure you balanced when you're facing writings and left these Throughout the season the playoffs so why not not get arguably the best right handed hitting outfielder outside of my trout in base going. That's looking back and Jerry. You don't look at this as as has some sort of rental you don't make a trade for guy player like Mookie Betts and not be willing to sign this guy who can be a free agent. After next year you fully the expect. The dodgers to ante up and paid has got to be a dodger for a long time. Don't you absolutely I liken this to like an Anthony Davis you you know you. Trade for Anthony Davis get him in the fold let them see. La Let him be Laker and see how great it is to be living in La very similar with mookie Betts. You get him over here here. Let them play in this ballpark. Be a dodger Every day Get accustomed to you know the lifestyle. LA which. Really second to none. Being in the bright lights of Hollywood. I I think he's going to love it here and WanNa sign back and certainly. The dodgers have the resources to sign a guy like me or about so. Hopefully he's comfortable here which I think he will be. And we'll love to play here because everybody played here including myself has a loved. But I'm not putting on that dodger. Blue Guess on inside the park a podcast is of course Jerry Hairston junior former major league player and analyst for the dodgers in their TV broadcasts The other part is MOOKIE BETTS AND PRICE COM from Boston and they're under a cloud of suspicion. They're under investigation for what went down with their ex manager. Now Alex Cora and the dodgers chargers got a bronco event they lost in the world series in two thousand eighteen to the red sox. Where do you make of that? Where Mookie Betts and David Price could possibly be implemented uh implicated and talk about that they took part in what could wind up being yet? Another cheating scandal baseball. Well you know what I've heard it. You know before the the commissioner ruled on the Astros. We'd heard rumblings for a couple of weeks. What was coming down the road and we knew it was pretty pretty bad We know that the commission she's GonNa ruin the red SOx pretty pretty quickly. That's what we're hearing And we've also heard it's not nearly as bad as the Astros so I'm kind of banking on that anytime you play a team in the world series and the Super Bowl or the or the NBA finals. You WanNa make sure both sides are on the up and up. And I'm hoping that was the case with the with the Red Sox I'm hoping Alex Cora bidding implement everything that he has with Houston in Boston but that's yet to be seen But you know now that is the guys like Bats and David Price on the fold You gotta wait and see. I'm hoping they weren't a part of it. Obviously David price being a pitcher. Sure certainly wasn't that part of it because it was on the offensive side of the ball. And I'm hoping mookie wasn't in wasn't a part of that as well so that's got to be seen Bob Open for the good in
How does hockey reckon with an abusive power structure?
"By the time you finish listening to this podcast. It's likely there will be more stories out there about abusive hockey coaches right now as we are recording this and as you're listening to it. The sport is facing a reckoning. It began with the toppling of one of the biggest domino's in the game. Mike Babcock out as coach of the Toronto Maple leafs tonight. Every mounting losses position became more and more tenuous and tonight his reign lean over. leafs nation is over. Mike Babcock was fired by the Toronto. Maple leafs for the same reason. Tons of hockey coaches have been fired before him. His team was underachieving. He might have been a bigger name than those other coaches but still not unusual then. The story started during the two thousand sixteen seventeen season. Mitch Moore had a private meeting with Mike Babcock and the coach asked then rookie to list the players on the team from Best Work Catholic to worst martyr complied not realizing that that talk within show his list to some of the players ranked the lowest and not long after that it became clear. The stories weren't just about Mike Babcock. Major allegations made against Calgary flames head coach. Bill Peters a former. NHL Her Chemo Lou. who spend spend some time with the flames in the early part of this decade calling for his alleged use of racial slurs while they were both part of the Chicago Blackhawks Organization now players ears are saying publicly things that used to be kept behind closed doors at all cost and the NHL in almost every league below it is realizing that it has a problem problem or more accurately that it has had a problem for quite some time? Now the question is what happens next. What did they do about it? What changes changes in the leafs? They've been playing a lot better since they fired the guy who humiliated one of their best players who thought I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Jeff Blair is a senior writer at sports net dot CA. He is the CO host of writer's block on Sports Net. Five ninety fan every day. He has covered a lot of dressing rooms ends and locker rooms throughout his career. Hey Jeff how you doing short. I'm doing well you've You've covered a lot of dressing rooms and locker rooms over the years I was. I was thinking about this the other day when the stuff happened with the Chemo. Lou and Bill Peters out of thinking to myself. I ever seen a locker room. I thought something nothing really poisonous and happen. And I think because unbalanced I spent more time around baseball clubhouses than anything else and initially when I started reporting Winnipeg CFL locker rooms is kind of a little different than hockey. I mean baseball. There have been African American players. There've there've been Latino players in baseball has its issues but it's nothing to go on a clubhouse now and see that the white players are in the minority I mean that's just the way it is and the NFL. When I covered it's the same thing and I don't remember any relationship with a manager or coach or a team I thought was particularly toxic? I mean they're examples of tone deafness. But what I think happens more often than not in a lot of these situations is just the manager coach. Whatever you WANNA call it becomes tone-deaf two things? Well why don't you start then by explaining how we got here where it started with Mike. Babcock in the leafs. Yeah there's a couple of things first of all. I'm a little concerned that people are sort word of mixing. Mike Babcock not you but people in general people were kind of going all Mike Babcock and then Bill Peters. Because here's the thing Mike Babcock seems to have tried cried some Caveman Sports Psychology on Mitch. Martyr So tell us about that. Mitch Monitor the first year. The story is now now that everybody's confirmed Mike. Babcock wanted him to work harder. So Mike Babcock called them into his office and said list your teammates in terms of hardest working to least hardworking. And tell me where you'd put Yourself Yourself Mitch. Marna with coach wants to do this so he goes ahead and does that and Somehow and I I don't know when it came out but somehow Mike Babcock doc essentially went to some of the guys that were below martyring. Say Mitch thanks. She works harder than you. You know this guy's dog in it right now and he thinks that works harder than you and the best line out of the Whole Story and God love Mitch. Martin but the best line of the whole story's Mitch Marnie just kind of shrugging and going nobody took it seriously right. You know it's like that's just that's just babs so I mean their stories. You know you can go. God stories about would coaches used to do for motivating players or trying to catch players airs. I Never Scotty Bowman Scotty. Bowman got tired of his team's missing curfew. So Scotty Bowman would go down. And I can't remember which city this went down to the front desk of the hotel and I think curfew was midnight. Went Down to the front desk of the Hotel at eleven thirty gave a stick to the dorm and said do me a favor when the guys come in get them to sign the stick and we'll we're going to auction off to charity so the next day Scott he goes into the locker eight. These are all the guys that showed up after midnight. Their names are on the stick so I mean stuff like that is you know. That's all part of an old school. Coaching you mentality. Whatever you think of it? Yeah it's and I mean at the heart of the the coach player relationship and this and this is why we'll talk specifically about. Bill Peterson Chemo. Lucas IT'S A. It's a point I think people are missing. I mean at the heart of a coach player relationship. It's a power relationship. I'm the coach. I control the most important part of your career. I control your time I control. How many starts you're gonNA make I control? Will how many at bats you're going to get I control if you're going to be coming in the ninth inning. I control if you're going to start back to back games like Then I control. You're earning power. This is sort of at the route. That's the traditional relations traditional relationship. Is that changing it is in the NHL. I find this fascinating because the four major sports in North America all right now if you look at sort of the players relationship to to power in the game the NBA players leak. It just is players are getting lots of money They make a a lot of money from shoe deals so they're comfortable financially outside of what they're earning contract like Shaquille O'Neal didn't spend any money he made playing basketball. He invested all all he lived off. His shoe deals coaches have no power over anybody in the NBA the NFL's you know you're disposable piece of meat. There's no such thing as guaranteed contract. Baseball's always had a very very strong players association. It's Kinda splintered now and I think we're kind of in an every man for himself air but what's happened in hockey is there has been an an influx of really talented really young players and because of the way the NHL 's collective bargaining agreement is setup. You Essentially Ashley. Now have a bunch of guys who were twenty two twenty three or twenty four making eight million dollars a year under contract for five six or seven years and that's the biggest difference to me. Is that players always used to make more than the coach and this is specifically the NHL players always used to make more than the coach. But they've got more term So if you're Mike Babcock and you've got three years left on your contract you've got Mitch Monitor. He's got six years left. He's making ten and a half million dollars a year. How do you? How do you motivate that? How do you manage them? It would take us. Ice Type. Doesn't matter to him take two minutes ice time away from me. I'm getting ten million dollars a year and by the way I got a job here for years down the road and you say that so hockey ocoee more than any other sport I think is is going through. This and hockey is going to half the data and and and the coaches are going to have to. The players aren't going to have to adapt. The coaches are going to have to debt. And this this gets the Bill Peter Situation and and why I think this is particularly vile you know first of all. I mean there's no statute of limitations and racism so I've heard people will make the case. Well he said this ten years ago three organizations ago he wasn't even with the flames. You have somebody claiming that he. He used the N.. Word that he used a racial epithet. You have that player's teammates backing you up. You have subsequent you have players coming out. Who played for Bill? Peterson Peterson Carolina. Saying hey he physically abused me. You have players coming out and saying yeah not only did he. Physically abused Rod brindamour. Not only did he did. He physically abused guys. But you've got player saying oh by the way we spoke. The Ron Francis who was general manager the team at the time and he didn't do anything wrong. There was something but the Akeem loose. The situation is really. I find it really bothersome. Because what was he supposed to do. You know these guys are playing in the American Hockey League They're not making a lot of money. Bill Peters when he was coaching that team the Rockford ice hawks. He held the future in his hands. so if you're a guy like a chemo Lou and you're trying to establish yourself or you're trying to get your career going going to your general manager and writing out your head. Coaches racist is probably not not a good career. Move and I think more than anything else. What this says is that at that time? Ten years ago that organization Chicago Blackhawks. There wasn't a structure in place. I mean I'm not gonNA say that guys don't yell things at each other in the locker room or on the ice and we we know they do. We know that racial epithets unfortunately are still a part of the sort of the on Ice Onfield Dialogue and sports. I don't think this happens now though like if we were rewinding this Chemo Lou had been Ah. I don't think that happens. 'cause he reports to somebody or he goes on social media then and it's taken care of but it bothers me that people are saying that some people are saying well you know ten years ago and nobody else stood up. It's people have to understand Dan that again. This gets to that that power relationship between the player and the coach. There's no way the player could you know what are you GonNa do. You're going to sacrifice your long term financial future because of this. I mean I'm not. I'm not saying that means. Bill Peters is right but hockey I think more than any other more than any other sport just by the the nature of how players are developed. Kids leave home. Kids go to town cities. They're billeted with people dependent on the structure. They are dependent on on the power structure there absolutely dependent on the power structure. And I think maybe that's what has created this culture around hockey the the NHL is really really trying. I think to find a way and I mean the NHL in general teams coaches are trying to find a way to deal with this the new age the players the the ultimate lesson the lesson from hopefully for this whole thing with Bill Peters is that there has to be every organization has to look at itself often say do we have the structures in
NBA working on relationship with China after controversial tweet
"Lakers are in China Darren Shanghai right now they're gonNA play a game there Thursday morning early our time four thirty our time and then they're gonNA play another game Saturday in Chins in but there is a lot of controversy swirling around something more the rockets GM tweeted last week it would be would it be misleading to say things have calmed down but Adam silver's over there he's in Shanghai he's attempting to deal with it and it's hard to say if it's down or not the original Durham won't Daryl Morey tweet fight for freedom stand with Hong Kong and China and when I say China it's not just the government it's it's actual NBA Fans in China have responded and said they basically cancelled the Houston Rockets. Yeah I which I don't know that's fair enough but it's it's realistic they really have they shut down the Houston Rockets The Houston Rockets have been the heritage beloved team in China going back to Yao. Ming and that tweet is unbelievably incendiary in Hong Kong there's a separatist movement movement and the Chinese are and when I say the Chinese it's not just the government Chinese citizens an NBA fans in China are dead set opposed that separatist movement and so it's caused a gigantic controversy here's a little bit of what Adam Silver said about it this afternoon. CCTV announced that because of my remarks supporting Daryl Mores freedom of expression not the since of his statement but his freedom of expression they were no longer going to air the Lakers Nets preseason games that are scheduled for later this week a and it's not something we expected to happen I think it's unfortunate but if that's the the consequences of US adhering to our values we still feel it's critically important we adhere to those values my plan long has been to travel to Shanghai tomorrow and I plan to attend the Lakers Nets game Thursday night it's my hope that when I'm in Shanghai I can meet with the appropriate officials and discuss where we stand and again put those remarks from Daryl Morey and my remarks in an appropriate context of a many decades long relationship and see if we can find mutual respect for each other's political systems and beliefs but I'm a realist as well recognize that this is this this issue may not die down so quickly Daryl Morey has apologized actually James Harden also made this state apologize you know we love China we love playing near I know for both of us individually we go there wants to twice a year they show the most important love so now we appreciate as a fan base and we love everything you know they're about in in no way appreciate the support that they give us individually and as an organization so You know we love you if you're wondering why Adam Silver has is kind of taken the position that he has he is he's issued a couple of statements this was too and and you know to give us a little more background Shanghai is fifteen hours ahead of us so it's tomorrow morning in Chiang it's Wednesday morning Adam Silver's already there and he's hoping to have those meetings today in his statement that he issued on Tuesday when he was in Japan he said the NBA will not put itself in a position of regulating what players employees seasoned team owners say or will not say on these issues we simply could not operate that way so he is standing up one hundred percent for not necessarily anything Darryl said or tweeted specifically but for his right to say it yes in in that's why and then as you point out there are many many people's very upset in China and we'll see what happens next but you know Michael and I are hoping touring the Games a Thursday morning and Saturday morning it'll be four thirty am both days if you want to get up early you can listen to us or we're going to simulcast those those our call on spectrum sports net too so we're just waiting to see what happens next in the story but we're looking forward to doing those games I said earlier in the show it one thing I've learned about sports and you understand this steve better than most people because you've covered so many Olympics is sports can be a great unifier it really can it can bring people together you can you can see people jumping up and down and hugging each other we don't even speak the same languages so I I'm hoping we can play the games we can bring him to you and that cooler heads will prevail but we'll see we'll see yeah there's a lot of upset people here is Rachel Nichols who's actually in China the conflict with China top of mind for the League office the NBA is actually facing backlash on both sides here they're facing backlash from those who support the anti-government protesters in Hong Kong who feel that silver hasn't gone far enough to support rockets GM Daryl Morey but they're also facing backlash inside China from those who feel that silver has not gone far enough to condemn what more he actually said one of the loudest voices in that WHO's actually hall of Famer Yao-ming who is now the chairman of the Chinese Basketball Association Yao is one of the people but silver is hoping to meet with when he gets to China which will be on Wednesday yeah he sort of he's taking heat from both sides now sober both from both from people think he didn't go far enough to support Daryl Morey and people in China who think he didn't go far enough in condemning them here's Doc rivers this is new uh-huh doc rivers talking about what's going on with the NBA in China hit for saying what we believe we did as we disagree disagree I disagree with everything you say I have the right to do that and I have the right to Silverstone Tom and that's good that's good that's what this is about freedom of speech and and we should always have who consequences for what you say and that's why we get back to the Lincoln Body before you say there could be possibly and that's by the way what we're seeing we're seeing enormous consequences for Daryl Morey exercise his freedom speech and as of now Darryl still the GM of the rockets tillman for t- to the owner of the rockets came out right away soon as Daryl tweeted that and said he doesn't speak with Iraq it's he doesn't speak for the NBA. I have no problem with Daryl does her his personal views I don't think they're gonNA lose his job over this we we shared with you earlier in the show if you don't listen to US regularly we uh-huh Darryl he's been a guest on this show probably ten times he's one of the reasons he's crazy we'll talk about anything and so Adam standing behind him and saying look whether you agree with what Tara said or not he has the right to say it I think probably means I was going to hang onto his GIG but I'm speculating I don't know yeah a lot of that came up over the weekend and it seemed to calm down a little bit but again this story is continuing to unfold and we don't exactly know how it's going to turn out when all is said and done what will the relationship between China Chinese fans in the Houston Rockets be what will the relationship between China Chinese fans in the NBA be how will the be altered how will that be changed in any way we don't exactly know where it seems to me the one of the things that will be important as if Adam silver can sit down with the Ming who is a great ambassador for Basketball Chairman of Chinese basketball so that could go a long way in mending the damage that has been

Christine Sinclair (probably) wont play forever. So appreciate her now.
"I she is on a very short list of the greatest, Canadian athletes of all time, second. She would probably never admit she belongs on that list, or actually even discuss that list at all. Third. She has been on the field for some of the most heartbreaking defense. Any Canadian team has ever suffered through to the hip fido's, a comprehensive victory of Canada fulltime book of Canada ill, Frantz four. Finally beginning today after almost twenty years of leading perhaps the best soccer Team Canada has ever fielded Christine Sinclair has a chance to reach heights that would have been unimaginable. When she began her career Sinclair is thirty six now, she's been Canada's rock for ever, this might be her last women's World Cup. And it might be Canada's best ever chance to hoist the trophy and it might be our last chance to appreciate a woman who has never talked much never cared about stats never wind about the refs never done anything, but play, great soccer, and she is now poised to become perhaps the best ever at that task. I'm Jordan heath Rawlings. And this is the big story Canada's first game and the women's World Cup comes today against Cameroon. So we figured it was time to talk to Stephen brunt of sports net was covered these World Cups for years, Stephen start with just who is Christine Sinclair, where did she come from? What's her origin story? Well, she's from the lower mainland BC. She comes from soccer playing family her to her uncle's played professionally with the Portland at an earlier incarnation of the Portland timbers her dad played. She played as a kid, and, you know, she played other sports as well. But as a was a prodigy Ritchie cows, cap for Canada as a sixteen year old, it does astounds me how, you know, we're, we're talking about the early days of the sport in the country, like candidate didn't have a women's national team till nineteen Eighty-six. Yeah, yes. She played in the ninety five world or the ninety four World Cup. Right. Those game lake back. Then it was if people are soccer people. They will understand what I'm saying. Here's like old time, English soccer like vertical. So. Correct. Big kick, it down the field and the strongest and tallest and fittest would run underneath it, it was dominated by countries that could do that played that way. But it was also dominated by countries that put money into women's sport before other countries did, which is a pattern we've seen a lot, right? Like early success in Olympic women's rowing, for instance, was because we invested in it in nineteen nothing away from those great athletes, but we got on that bandwagon before a lot of other countries said in soccer even a lot of traditional soccer countries declined to invest in the women's game. There was a level of chauvinism in the in the soccer cultures so that, you know, the Brazil's and the Spain's and the Italy's they, they didn't do anything women's soccer, but Germany, did and Norway and Sweden did and we did to a degree. We were we were kind of early adapters in terms of women's soccer and the Americans did after title. Nine rank title nine was huge right into created opportunities for for collegiate athletes. So those were the countries that dominated early and but that was what they was a power game. You know power game of fitness game. And you know in assize game really strength game. How did Christine Sinclair make her Mark on that game on this team? When did she come to one to Candida notice her, I would think I guess the U twenty tournament gonna remember sales change. They change it from nineteen to twenty remediate offered was the tournament in Edmonton, where the golden generation, they, they got to the finals loss to the Americans, a recurring theme here, but played in front of forty thousand plus people in Edmonton to Commonwealth stadium too big TV ratings, so Kara Lang, and most Creedy and, and sink. You know, we're part of that team and his golden generation of Canadian women country embrace them in a way that it hadn't I don't think it'd embrace the soccer team male or female before we men's team that you know got the World Cup and eighty six and they won the Gold Cup and under Hoeger, but I don't think candidate had ever cared about soccer as much as they cared about that team that played in Edmonton. So that was kind of her debut for the Comanche was the most valuable player high-score most valuable player in that tournament. So, you know, and then she joined the national where she played for the national team and. After that, again, with people like Charmaine Hooper, who is a great athlete in her own, right. And the they, you know, they have a fourth place finish the World Cup people then forget that, that they, they did finish fourth, but, you know, I think what really started to put things on the map was what, what came later and end know and the evolution of the of the game and the pollution of the players will it's kind of a chicken or the egg situation because you had Christine Sinclair in his golden generation that kind of took over that team and dragged it in front of everybody watching. And then once you know that it can do good TV ratings, and people are really going to care. It becomes a lot easier to recruit talent bring on sponsors, and all the rest of it that puts you a little bit further ahead. Yeah. In parallel to that. The game is getting more sophisticated evolving, or changing in, in a way that soccer people found pleasing like I was kind of separate myself because I've covered soccer for a long time. But I you know, soccer people I was considered me an outsider. So I, I always kind of separate myself, but that the people who would kind of disdain women's football women. Soccer started to see the ball being played on the ground. More you know more of a passing game as a more sophisticated version of the game and started to kind of give it its due. So those things happen at the same time one is that. Yeah, you have golden generation of Canadian players coming through who had succeeded on stage, a very popular stage, anyway. And at the same time, you had women's soccer getting new respect, of course, you had that explosion with the Americans right where, you know, brandy Chastain and all of that. You know, it became a big deal in the United States. Yes. Also, the breakthrough from American soccer, you know, if you think about it, the US men's national team was pretty good for a long time. But what was the breakthrough for soccer in the US? It was the women you absolutely the women describe that scene because you probably, it's probably embedded in your memory of brandy Chastain. And that's the only thing I remember that time. Yeah, we scored the winning goal and, and stripped off her jersey was wearing a sports bra and had like an eight-pack ill. She's absolutely ripped. Right. Looks like I think it was it was a moment of empowerment for a whole bunch of. People. And I think for a whole bunch of young girls watching it was, I wanna be her. Yeah. I wanna play that game because it was, you know, it wasn't dainty. It was ferocious. It was competitive. It was passionate there were. And there are a lot of great things about women's soccer. Well, and in Canada. It's the women are better. They have men's team and it by an order of magnitude. We could qualify that say the pool shallower again. We were earlier that there is. We, we probably put more emphasis on what you see now is that, you know, England's good now in the Nederlands is getting good is against some of these other soccer countries are kind of saying, hang on, we'll Spain suddenly pretty good. But yeah, I think in Canada, they had the success and be, I think people did start the kind of tune into the fact that someone who might be the best player in the world play for us. So tell me about her that because you've covered her for while now what is Sinclair, like she's known, at least to me and casual observers for being pretty closed off. Oh, yeah. You mean per as a person as a person as an athlete? How, how is she what drives her she's super shy? She doesn't like doing interviews a drink press stuff. If you talk to her teammates tell you, she's not shy that she got a great sense of humor, which she does. But she just just playing that the public role. I remember once I went down to interview her when I was still the globe and mail. She was playing for the, the western New York flash. Again, you know, the leagues have come and gone. Right. But one of those down near buffalo somewhere, and they having an open workout for kids. And I was driving down from the globe. And I'd set it up through Canadian soccer to do this interview I think goes before the twenty seven World Cup. So it looks a low pressure environment is what I'm saying, and it's going to be a nice story and I got stuck in a little bit of traffic at the border. So I got there about three minutes before the interview was supposed to happen. But I was, you know, phony, people telling you, look, I'm coming, right? Look, she was in her car, and she was going to leave. She was honored. I almost had to throw myself in front of her car because she didn't want to do it. She just didn't want to do the interview, and it was, you know, as an awkward interview, and there wasn't much to it, and I've been persistent, I guess with her to try and get a little bit. And I have huge Marijn for as an athlete. So maybe that's part of it as well. But yeah, she's never going to be somebody who talks and soundbite. She's never going to be somebody who kind of thrown horn. It's just not in her. She's, you know, again, MBA seen her. She is a passionate ferocious competitor. And she does have a sense of humor, but it's hard to get past, you know, the veneer, sometimes why did you work so hard to get past that veneer? You know, I think a lot of it goes back to that twenty eleven World Cup which I'm sure we're gonna talk about. But I covered the tell me about the twenty eleven World Cup. You know, key so candidate went into Germany twenty seven World Cup is in Germany and Canada. There's a sense that candidate could be competitive in this turnament, sorta like now, you maybe none, as they maybe expectations weren't quite where they are now but they were pretty darn high. And that was the, you know, the, the moment for that golden generation of players. Right side from Carlisle, who got hurt that, that was that group this, and this was there, a moment and Canada had hired an Italian to coach the team. Caroliina Mirage, and the whole idea was that this was the country's, there's, like finishing school that she was going to teach them more sophisticated tactics and European training methods and this is gonna turn us into a footballing nation rather than soccer h nerve footballing team rather than a soccer team. And Caroline was an interesting like a character from fiction, you know, and they had this whole group of Italian trainers in the system coaches, and there was much intense talk and smoking cigarettes. And speaking of Italian, and she took them off to a training camp. They went to some hotel in, in the mountains in Italy. And we're locked off by themselves and trained and all of this, when you talk to them after the facts, you know. So it sounds like a prison camp. But it sounds nice now but it wasn't fun. But they all say the right stuff that okay, we're gonna we're gonna we're gonna we're way. Better way. More sophisticated. We're gonna play you know, we're we're going to our game has she is we have learned enormous amounts Mer. The opening game is against Germany in Berlin at the Olympic stadium. They know they're going to lose that game. Everybody knows he'll lose that game but they, you know, they compete and sink scores. A goal on a on a free kick. I think not a penalty free kick, but she also gets hit in the nose and breaks her nose spewing blood. And it was real was, you know in this there goes the tournament. Right. So so caroliina Marashi again, who is she was very much into intrigue in whispered conversations? I'm covering this for the globe. And for sports that we were the rights holders I was as close to any team. I think as I've ever been and there's been there. Many whispered conversations was she going to play and they wouldn't let her talk to the media, and she was. Wearing this like the mass that basketball players wherever they break their now.
Testing T-Mobile's new TV service
"Talking tech is brought to you by wicks dot com. Create and publish a stunning website all from one powerful platform, go to wicks dot com to create your very own professional website today. That's w I x dot com in stay tuned after the show to hear you can take advantage of special offer for talking tech listeners T mobile has a new TV service called peevish in. But is it any good? What's going on armored smear in for a vacationing Jefferson Graham today, and this is talking tech? So I got to go hands on with T Mobile's new TV service, which is called TV station. They're launching this in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago among other cities, eight cities and all and the service is delivered over the internet versus co ax cable. So I got to go hands on with this thing, and it's very much not for court cutters. This is not targeting cord cutters in any way, it's an alternative to cable TV and T mobile. Sees it as a better alternative. So for one hundred bucks a month. You get a whole bunch of channels all the channels. You're familiar with. And of course, you can add all the premiums on top of that T mobile is promising Nobil creep. Now, you do need to keep your high speed internet connection for all this to work. And this is where all my head scratching starts because if you ditch the cable part of your bundle with your cable provider, your monthly internet service is definitely going to go up not really saving money here. But again, this is an alternative. So you get all the channels as you want. You get a giant DVR which has space for four hundred hours of HD programming. Plus, it's all personalized when you first turn on your TV. There's this nice big screen with at least five channels playing. And the biggest channel is the one that the personalization engine thinks you wanna watch at that moment in time. Then there's a whole bunch of stuff from your DVR, again, all personalized the stuff that thinks you wanna watch and then on demand shows as well. So I give them credit for all the personalization. That's something. We haven't really seen in a big way on typical cable or satellite. Then you've got apps, but the apps are lacking right now at launched there's YouTube. Job. There's Pandora there's I heart radio. But after that, it kind of falls off pretty fast, they are promising Amazon and Netflix by the end of the year. But again, if you want those right now you have to switch to a different input. There's also Alexa and Google functionality as well if you have one of those devices, but you kind of have to ask everything in very unnatural ways. Like, you know, say the word S T vision to search for game of thrones or ask TV kitchen to tune into a particular channel. It's probably just easier to do those things on your remote, with the exception of searching, there's Facebook and Twitter support, but not good enough to replace what you can do on your phone a much, faster and better way. And again, I'm kind of scratching my head with this one. Because if I want to save money, I'm going to cut the cord, and I'm going to get access to all the apps I could want by purchasing something like Roku and apple TV or chrome cast or a fire TV if a want cable, I'm going to get a bundle. And I'm going to save money on cable, and I'm also going to get some of those sports channels that you can only get. Cable like sports net. L A, for instance, in Los Angeles that carries the dodgers and Also Sunday ticket if I'm on direct TV, this leaves TV in a tricky place at least for now, I think that it is a nice alternative to cable in the future. But right now the service is just not there. But again, everything talk about could be remedied with software updates. And I think the real vision of TV kitchen might be realized in the future when team oh will deliver all of this over its own five G wireless network.

Ex-journalist details allegations against Luke Walton
"A civil suit was filed in LA alleging sexual assault against king's head coach Luke Walton stemming from an incident at a hotel in Santa Monica five years ago, when he was at the time insistent for the warriors Kelly tenant former host on spectrum sports net L A detailing the incident in a press conference Tuesday. He got on top of me and Kim me down to the bed and held my arms down with all of his Wayne while he kissed my neck and my face and my chest. And as I kept asking him to please stop into get off. He laughed at me. I continue to ask him to stop over and over again without any use of my arms because he continued to hold me down. I feel him rubbing his erection on me. And he continued to laugh at all of my Cleese to get off and to stop. There are no criminal charges stemming from the Kelly tenant filing a civil suit this week. She claims Walton continued to harasser after he became coach of the Lakers, and she was working as a broadcaster in LA. The Lakers the allegation was never reported to the team before or during Walton's employment. I was scared when someone assaults you, and you think you're going to be rate coming forward is a scary thing. And I have spent years now dealing with this trying to forget about it hoping that I could push to the side and bury it and hoping that time would heal. And that was not the
Stephen Brunt on Tiger Woods: What kind of heroes do we want?
"Hey, it's Jordan, and I've podcast for you. Commons is Canada's most popular podcast about politics last season. They tried to answer the question how corrupt is Canada this time around. They're investigating our national addiction oil the currency's featuring host Arshi man is called crude. And it's about Canada's relationship with the oil industry. The good the bad the ugly and the weird you'll find Commons wherever you get your podcasts. So go check it out. I'm going to try to tell you today's story the way all probably tell it to grandkids someday. There was this guy a golfer named tiger. He was the best golfer in the world probably ever, you could argue if you wanted to, but nobody who'd watched him play would listen to you. And if that was our story, it would be a boring one, but it's not anyway, tiger was the greatest he had it all the fame money commercials endorsements beautiful wife and adorable children. But he was also a jerk. There were a lot of stories about this. He was rude to fans who wouldn't give kids high fives or sign autographs. He had his caddy yell at people who was a notoriously bad Tipper. He was a sullen guide to play with. He was robotic with the media, and none of those things mattered because he was the greatest until he wasn't just after two on Friday morning. Thirty three year old Tiger Woods. Drove out of his house alone. His car I hit a fire hydrant then a tree police after that crash. His wife left him. It turned out he'd been cheating on her with dozens of women across the country. His sponsors dropped him. Almost as fast as she. Did Ben details of his affairs came out, and they were humiliating. I want to say to each of you simply and directly. I am deeply sorry for my irresponsible and selfish behavior. I engaged in his knee gave out and then his back and even when he felt good enough to play golf. He was bad at it. And then despite surgeries his backup worse and worse until he could barely sit down without pain. He needed a spinal fusion surgery he had it just so he would be able to play with his children in his old age. He said but afterwards he felt better. So about two years ago, he picked up a club and tried to play again, and he could and he started getting better at it on the rest. Well, we'll tell you the rest, but you probably know how this ends. Then he doubted we'd ever see it. But here it is. Turn to glory. So it's Tiger Woods. Now. Redeemed? What is it about him that compels so many of us to root for him despite his flaws? What does the way we cheer for tiger tell us, but the kind of stories that were drawn to and about the kind of heroes. We prefer. I'm jordan. He's rawlings. And this is the big story. Stephen Brent from sports net is one of our favorite guests to talk to you. Whenever sports gets bigger than the games on the field. Why did everybody I know even with people on my production team who don't care about sports watch golf on Sunday? Well, let's see because the greatest golfer of all time came back under what seemed like impossible circumstances in rows right to the top of the sport in a after being written off for really good reasons over the last several years, especially over the last five or six years because he because Tiger Woods is a ground-breaking figure culturally. The people who don't know the wouldn't know Jordan Spieth of walked up their driveway know, who he is the he's he's an icon and a groundbreaker. So we has significance beyond the game. He plays. And because we all love a good redemption story, whether it's true or not we all want to believe that if you turn your life around if you do the right things instead of the wrong things if you follow the rules. You will be rewarded somehow in the cosmic sense. And for a lot of people. I think that's what it felt like I I'm not sure if the greatest I'm trying to think is this. Latest comeback story in sports history. That's a big one. Right. And I have a personal bias on that. Because I saw George Foreman. When the heavyweight championship at age forty six having been away for eleven years, and then come back as a big fat guy had people laugh Ataman lose nine rounds of a fight Nakagawa the tenth. So that was pretty good. But this that probably just me, but otherwise yet may potentially the greatest comeback story in the history of sport, a nostalgia moment for some people. I yeah, I get creeped out thinking of nineties style. Just somebody my age at doesn't nineties is like yesterday. But there's it's an established a moment, you know, this kind of the big three right there. Right. So within the sport historical greatest of all time, and the redemption narrative, and the and the style jet for a certain generation who remember remember when way way back in those nineteen nineties tell me about that. Because that was something that everybody was talking about right after he won is that moment twenty something years ago. Now when the world saw Tiger Woods for the first time. Do you? Remember the first time you saw Tiger Woods. That's good. I know not specifically. I certainly remember the first master's I remember talking about him in the US amateur. I remember him being out. You know, what I know? I take that back. You know, when I saw him the first time, I was at home as a teenager, a young teenager. Maybe not even a teenager yet. And after school. My parents watched the Mike Douglas show, which was a talk show that was on every day like five o'clock in the afternoon, and that's the famous show where they were L. Whereas whereas all man brought him out as a six year old and he had calls. I saw that show. Do you remember when Tiger Woods became I guess the Tiger Woods that we talk about? When we talk about the beginning of this story. When is lapping the field at the masters. I'm one of those moments when he just did something that when he seemed on another planet when he seemed different from all of the rest when he separated himself and that puts him on a very short list with Jordan and alley and what was it like watching him in the late nineties and early two thousands. Well, the guy so I'm not a golf guy. I have to. So is this I read like, I quit playing golf is fourteen. I walked off the course on the second hole. I hated hated the people here that the clothing, I did everything. So I just laughed. I literally just walked off in the middle of the game. And that's why we're talking you. Because this story is golf, so I hate golf and everything about it. But no, he was he was like a he was a superman, right? He was this. And and again, the nontraditional nature in terms of golf the whitest of sports. Yeah. Those days more so than now. But the idea that you could be, you know, someone other than a rich white kid, and and take on the sports or the way they're with Williams sisters and tennis the same that you could you could kind of just going to throw this back through all of that back in people's faces planned courses that were segregated up. You know within my lifetime. Yeah. There were courses that I remember remember the commercial? I think that Nike did about that. He was the first black person to ever play on some of these courses that he'd been playing. Yeah. I do remember that. And that was you know, again, that's a very so you felt like this was righteous to that that he was kicking down those doors and breaking those barriers and thumbing. Knows that the racist and the racist traditions and golf news, you know, total package now that that said the other side of them was completely unknowable. You know, we saw him. He was again public use a public figure, and he's a six year old to a degree. And he was kind of a brand Ike on it was like, Jordan. He was universal. Right. You could you could show that picture in any continent on earth and people say, oh, that's him. But he was impenetrable. He still is I have no idea who that guy is I really don't you know, has left people try to figure it out. And a lot of very fine writers have taken a crack at it. But I have no idea who what's inside them. Do you think we know him better now than we did ten twelve years ago? I think we would like to think we do again, I think under pretending that we know these people is important to us because it gives meaning to something that's otherwise meaningless which guy just put myself out of out of a job here. But you know, it doesn't really matter this stuff. Right. It doesn't. It's funny. You're like putting a little white ball and a hauler Gorna touchdown or scoring a winning goal and overtime and hockey game. Then add up a whole lot. You know, it doesn't even add up to what your doesn't add up art adds up to you know, with art. You can say the the art is the is what's important. So we will forgive people when number one you don't need to know the personality of the person producing yard you. Appreciate the art as a separate thing from them. And number two, you forgive them their sins. Right. Doesn't matter miles Davis horrible person. Right. Like one of the worst people ever, but produced sublime transcendent, revolutionary, art. And that's enough. You don't have to care about him. But but fleet was that's the thing. It's different. Because this no one's I. Yeah. I know it's you can argue make the argument that it's art, but you know, games come and goes Gore's, come and go somebody wins somebody loses. Like I've been doing. I've been writing about this stuff for a long time. It it. It doesn't add up to a la- beans, but if we can give it meaning, you know, if you can kind of imbue it with meeting and say, there's a human lesson here. And there's a human involved in this. Then I think it kinda justifies it. So I think that's part of we want to turn this into a parable. We wanna turn sports into a parable. That's how we understand the world is, you know, through parable as someone who. Who tries to do that and turn sports into those lessons for us. What did you think when I guess when Tigers false started when the news broke of the car crash and the details of that came out any stepped away? I you know, I felt like Klay like the rest of us. You know, it was it was interesting because it was kind of a flash of humanity in there he'd been so packaged and so protected in so manufactured, and, you know, both as a player, you know, by his father, and then certainly by Nike and everybody else who were in the image business image management business to to to be around tiger. I was a couple of times golf tournaments. And you know, there's no, you know, sense of what was behind this thing. And so, you know, I think that there is well, it's what the gossip industries built on right that they're kind of the Makarius thrill of oh, they're like us, aren't they? They're just like us. As a real under the Nike. Yeah. But especially on a flawed Cuban, right? So yeah, he may be rich, and he may be handsome, and he may be may have this beautiful wife. And but really he's like, you know, the the bad guy down the block, you not like you because you would never know that he was like the bad guy down the block. He has flaws. He's he's he's human in a so, but I I think there's a little bit of glee that goes without sometimes kinda, you know, the the whole shot and Freud thing, right? That you're you're you. I think a lot of people kind of were excited about it. You know, in some ways and said there, you go, you know, you may have thought you were something else. But here's what you really are. But I think it would it mostly revealed was a guy who I again, I'm not going to I wouldn't try and put a framework aunt and say, he was you know, all about golf and then never developed the other dimensions of his humanity. I have no idea. Like, I I don't know who the guy is. I don't pretend. But I think the impulse there is to say, yeah, he's he's a he's he's a flawed human being like the rest of us. And again weirdly to take some satisfaction from it. Well, there is that narrative that we probably like to put on. Sports stars because they're bigger and faster and better and richer than us that they are missing out on an essential part of humanity because they had to focus on this game since they were three years old. And they missed the whole rich tapestry of life that we got. Yes. No. And that's a great point. Right. That is a great point that, you know, the those character lessons you learned by being a really crappy little league player, right? For instance, or how to sit on a bench or being dumped by various girlfriends or ignored by others or just understanding failure that these guys were believed they were impervious to it. But in fact, you know, everybody gets their come up at some point. But again, that's that's kind of a religious theme. Isn't it? It really is. Yeah. Well, it's the it's the new idea of the human experience. Right. And that we all kind of go through the worst valleys in our lives. And it's what comes after that makes it worthwhile. Theoretically, you're radically. Yeah. Theoretically, or you know, it could be just all pointless, which would be another another more bleak way to look at it. We'll how unlikely was the next peak after that Val. Because it wasn't just the personal life scandal. It was like I mean you cover lots of athletes who try to come back from Steph. If I asked you five years ago, Steven what's the chance that I see? Tiger Woods win another green jacket snow slim two years ago. Right. Look, it's not about and it's not about the personal life stuff in this sense. Because look he was quite capable of winning golf tournaments while his personal life was apparently you're Radyr chaotic he managed to keep those things separate as when it was the physical stuff. It's one is back when you know, this guy who could barely bender bent over to pick something up off the floor two years ago the back. You can't swing a golf club with with that. You know, I think physically that idea that no matter how hard he worked his body at broken. And that's you know, way that it was not it did not appear to be able. So he could try as hard as he wanted to and he can live as clean life as you want to do and all of those things, but it didn't matter because this machine was broken. So I I don't think anybody hearing those stories from twenty sixteen twenty seventeen about his back kind of whispers because. It wasn't very public thought. You know this. No, there's no chance right? He can't go out there and compete. We can week out. And then he kind of comes back, I guess about a little over a year ago now and starts playing golf and laying. All right. And even then I don't know about you. But it was like watching an older athlete play out his years with some semblance of what he used to be. But not the same person, certainly the British the British Open right in the open championship. Right. Where you come thought. You know, he's he's not that far off and it's not like, but it's a different year. Right. It's a different vibe was a different vibe in at the masters because you know, the the old vibe is the, you know, I'm going to I'm going to destroy you. I'm going to destroy the golf course, which is what really I'm going to destroy the rest of you in this tournament. And that kind of Uber confidence that he had. I thought the most interesting thing watching that last round was watching him play the eighteenth hole, so carefully so super carefully. Right. Because you know, again, I would have been it would have been just insane you up there and hit a driver at that point, you know, because God knows and and but just. Kind of watching him play a really safe bogey to win that tournament. That's that's not in some ways. That's the anti-tiger. Right. It's just but it was it was smart. It was the right thing to do. And really the way he won that the way you try in that last round was by being kind of dog it and watching and consistent and then watching other people fail around him. It wasn't like he just sees them by the throat they had to fail. So that's a little different. If we're going to do the metaphor thing. Again, he humbled himself in front of the eighteenth hole. And is that can we read into that anything about his new life? I mean, a lot of people talked even before this tournament about how he just wanted to win for his children. Right. And he wanted his kids to see daddy win. And that's not the old tiger. Yeah. And who knows who knows who knows this guy enough to actually say that. I have no idea. I think he probably likes being tiger. Yeah. And I thought the and the chance to be tiger one more time at forty-three. That'd be pretty cool. Right. That'd that'd be an yes, it'd be great to have it. Do it in front of your children? Who'd never really got to experience it in to shut up the nose of everybody who ever said anything about you, there'd be a lot of things that you would take satisfaction from. But again, this is a guy who has programmed to be that that thing that character that kind of golf playing robot from the time he was a toddler, and you know to have that. It's right Thompsons got a new book about kind of greatest the kind of the the nature of some of the greatest of all time athletes him Jordan criminal for the other two are, but is his take on tiger is among his takes on tiger. Now, he's a great writer of golf and a Greg. I was around the sport is you know, that he thinks tiger hated the sport that whole first phase that he he was incredibly good at it and hated every minute of it because it had been forced and imposed upon him. So again, if I'm going to play amateur shrink here, I could talk about them being liberated in this second half and doing it for himself and for his own reasons rather than someone else's reasons and not having the daddy figure hovering over in them and being the daddy himself. And but like now, I'm a sports I'm being a sports writer here. Just extrapol-. I saw that column come into view. I just don't know if it's true, right? I honestly don't I have no idea. I I've no idea we know what lies in his soul. But I don't have any idea. What lies in most people souls? Right. It's we, but we go seeking it. We go seeking that story. Yeah. We're trying to find the meaning we're trying to find the meaning. Yeah. It's and you know, and then tomorrow, we'll try and find the meaning and something else. But this one looked the one thing as a sports writer sports writers people. I was asked to do cheer. We cheer for stories. Yeah. I've been lots of press boxes. Lots of press rooms everybody. Cheers for the story. Everybody got what they were cheering for and you'll end fan through the really that's what fans want you wanna. Yeah. You support your team and you support the uniform. But man, there's nothing like a story is there. Well, here's the question. Then how come I was and probably you were certainly millions and millions of people were cheering so hard for a guy who objectively from the little that we do know about him, isn't that great guy at least hasn't been and cheering form as a huge underdog went objectively. He's one more majors than anybody. But one person and he's one hundreds of millions of dollars because we're flexible. We as a species are very flexible, I wanna feel like we shoot for a real underdog. But we can you know, you can turn it. You know, think about watching the March madness if you have no real rooting interest. And so there's two schools on there. You have no idea who they are. You have no idea who those players are. But you can construct something around that game where when you know, east west North Dakota state beat somebody you go. That's the greatest thing I've ever seen your route informant that basket goes in. And then you go onto the next thing we we do construct stuff like that. And you know, he's like that the idea of the fightback that's really fight back from adversity fight back against the impossible. And the character stuff as I said, it's tricky we could because sport has been a place where we've confused being good at something having great motor skills or winning the genetic lottery, or, you know, working hard or all this up at everybody works hard. Right. We we do confuse I with character. Sometimes those things are blurred might that. You know that he's a character guy. You know? That's that's why that's why he succeeded. Not because you know, he was born this way. A or had some advantages or because there's something else inside. We got we go for that. And a lot of time and the flip side of his we're we're quite willing to ignore the opposite with where somebody could be like Michael Jordan's. Not a nice guy. Right. There's not really any suggestion. That Michael Jordan's a nice go. No there's like with tiger. There's plenty of stories to the contract. And you know, Allie was a terrible husband and a crappy fodder by and large. Now, there's also a political social components rally. So that's you know, it's a little bit different. But as I was saying before about, you know, the separating the art from the artist you can do that with our, you know, Pablo Picasso is bad guy. Right. Really bad guy. But it didn't stop anyone from treating him as Picasso during his work that way. Well, you don't have to cheer for Picasso. You don't and you can see you know, it. It gets tricky with the, you know, the Woody Allens of the world, you know, it gets it gets into some dicey territory there. Maybe I'm not sure anybody's going to listen to a Bill Cosby monologue the same way anymore. But but sport, the two things are connected. The two things are connected, and we'd like to you know, we want to kind of link those two things. Say this guy triumphed or this woman triumphed. Because a yes, they were very compact because they worked harder because they had more of that grit and character in, you know, Royal jelly, we we really we seek that. And I'm not saying, it's not true. But I think it's more that we needed to be true. Or we want it to be true sometime like it's a chicken or the egg did tiger win again because he became a better person or because he's winning again. Do we just think he became a better person Ingo? Yeah. And his backup better. Yeah. That to actually could swing a golf club dad like he may he may be a great guy now and totally, you know, Saint Paul on the road to Damascus had a moment where hang on when everything's clear down. And I'm not going to do all those terrible things anymore or maybe just got healthy. I don't know. We'll never know. But the, but the, but the former is way more compelling than the lab.

How the Expos can finally return to Montreal
"The Montreal Expos never went away. Expos take the field here at Olympic stadium in Montreal the second game before game series, the Expos left. They left Montreal. They became the Washington nationals. They went off to play baseball in DC while Olympic stadium. Their former home sat empty and decaying the teams famous mascot UP even went to work for the Montreal Canadians because even furry orange monsters gotta eat. The idea of the Expos of a major league team in the heart of Montreal the modern monument to a sport with deep history in the province that never entirely vanished. There were always a few people some of them loudly and most of them very quietly keeping the fires burning mostly they were dreaming. But sometimes they were planning for the Tim's eventual return, and somehow that return might happen. The sport of baseball has changed. The city of Montreal has changed the business of sport in general has changed an unbelievably as cities around North America. Celebrate baseball's opening day today. It is beginning to seem like the team that never really went away is suddenly very close to coming back. How did this happen? How real is it? What does baseball mean to Montreal to Quebec or to Canada? And we'll those fans who refused to abandon their team. Even after their team, abandoned them finally get their happy ending. I'm Jordan heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Jeff Blair is the host of the Jeff Blair show on sports net. Five ninety the fan. He is the co host of the lead podcast with Stephen Brent knows a lot about baseball in Montreal because he covered the Expos for the zette for about a decade and for the global mail after that so it's opening day to day. There's no baseball in Montreal today. Not yet. But Montrealers are very excited this week. Why is that? Well, I think they should be excited. I mean, I covered the Expos from eighty eight to ninety seven on a full-time basis. And I was there when when the team ended up leaving town part of a franchise swap that saw the Expos go to Washington and saw the ownership of the Boston Red Sox in my and Miami Marlins change as part of the process at that time. There was very little support from the local business community. There were there was a very small collection of minority partners who were in for maybe million two million dollars a year, very small. They had been effectively bought out in a leveraged buyout by Jeffrey Loria was a New York art dealer who came in and saw that I think at the end of the day ended up putting in about twenty five million US of his own money into that team and that up buying it. And then when he sold the Marlins that was for one point three billion any that's but at that time. Time when when the Expos left the Commissioner was committed at the time, but ceiling was committed to bringing baseball back to Washington. It was it was a legacy thing for him. The Expos has I mentioned had no local corporate support. There was no political support. I mean, they didn't have a political champion in the mayor's office. They they had no political champions provincially as a matter of fact, when you know, I think when you talk to people who are involved in sort of the post Charles Bronfman area era, the expo is one of the things they'll say is that they were affectively screwed by p q government. There was just there were there was there was there was no reason to keep the Expos and much there. There is a plan to build a new ballpark was completely stillborn. So there was absolutely no reason for the Expos to stay in town. And of course, attendance it had had decreased while fast forward. Now, you have a new Commissioner rob Manfred. Who also even though he's only been inter for few years. Just thinking of his legacy and his legacy is in. Internationalizing the game. You've seen baseball games. Played in Japan. Baseball will play a game at Lord's Cricket Ground. This year the Red Sox and the Yankees. And rob Manfred has said that he thinks Montreal is a viable baseball market. He also thinks Mexico City's viable baseball. Mark in Montreal itself. You have a really well-funded core ownership group, Stephen Bronfman of Claridge investments, the son of Charles Bronfman and Mitch Garber who's kind of a fascinating guy. Mitch when I first met him. He's a lawyer his uncle was a lawyer who represented a lot of Expos players in and around Montreal Tim Raines, he keeps kind of a fixer for them. And I I mean that in a positive way Mitch also hosted a radio show late night. I mean, he was a dabbler really talented guy. He is now president of Caesars acquisitions international, essentially lives in Monaco. And he's on the French CBC French language version of dragons. Dan. He's he's he's a very he is shaker and mover. He was I believe I don't know if he's still as he was CEO of Cirque du Soleil at one point he's got a lot of money scuttle resume. He's got and he's and he's and he's a billionaire. He and Stephen Bronfman both known each other for while that they have they've kept the dream of baseball in Montreal alive. They done it very quietly as is their manners people. They're both fairly quiet, quiet. People very quietly. They had Denny co dare when he was mayor of Montreal who is a huge baseball. I mean, he's an he's a nut. But he's a huge baseball fan. And he you know, he was show up at every baseball event. The all star game the World Series it show up at the Commissioner's office. He he'd go to the Expos or the Blue Jays games every spring spring training just to kind of fly the flag and lobby for and lobby for a team to return to Montreal and the provincial government, both the liberal government. And the new government are very the very comfortable with the idea of entertaining, some sort of public private partnership. So what we have now is. Commissioner who views internationalizing the game as an important part of his legacy. We have people in Montreal ton of money. What we don't have as a team revolt park. Obviously we have Olympic state, and we don't have a team or ballpark. Well, this is going on the tap. The Tampa Bay rays have been have been trying for twenty twenty-five years to get a ballpark built. They play at Tropicana field in Saint Pete. So horrible ballpark that, you know, their their attendance is routinely the worst in the league somewhat bizarrely. They have one of the best TV contracts in the league. But their attendance is generally pretty poor. They have attempted to build a ballpark in different parts of Tampa. The the providence Saint Pete right now is that Tampa's where the growth there is in the area east of Tampa north Tampa. That's where the growth is. Unfortunately to get the Saint Pete you base give a choice of two bridges. So during rush hour access to Saint Pete from Tampa is essentially it's the worst place you could imagine in the region right ballpark last year. There seemed to be finally at least for the people in Tampa. There seemed to be memento. Adam behind building a ballpark in ebor city, which is to to the eastern part of the city. It's an old old warehouse area. And I I hadn't been paying attention to it at baseball's winter meetings or something happened it collapsed. I don't know what I don't know the exact majority just collapsed. So the winter meetings in baseball where everybody in baseball gathers media general managers owners, it's it's kinda like a swap shop trades or made sometimes free agents or talked about and all that there was a news conference call by Stuart Sternberg with the owner of the race and his president, which if you've got something you wanna float as if you've got a trial balloon you wanna float in baseball. You do it at the winter meetings because everybody who writes talks thinks about baseball is there, right? They held a news conference. You know, blah, blah, blah stadium issue in Tampa. We still have a lease at Tropicana field the twenty twenty four twenty until twenty twenty-seven dot that up. But and this was was was very subtle. And I probably wouldn't have noticed if I hadn't been tipped off about this by a raise official the raise owner. Said listen, we're not getting a park built in tap. We do have a lease right now until twenty twenty seven Saint Petersburg prime real estate in terms of building condos mixed business residential area. I mean, it is a it is a gold mine for raising tax. If there's a crappy building city there's a crappy building sitting on it that we're going to be gone from an in in ten years. So what he did what Stuart Sternberg did was he kind of flipped it a bit. And said, here's the thing. Yeah. We could be here twenty twenty seven. But man, if you guys get an offer between now and then for this parcel a land who knows what the economy's going to look like in twenty twenty seven right? Could be better could be worse. So centrally what he said is. Hey, if you guys get a good offer for this. You know, I'd be willing to cut you deal here to to to help you finish this off. Please. Let me go, please. Let me go. So well that's going on, you know, the folks in Montreal again, very quietly quietly, very diligently. Claridge investments is involved in purchasing land in Griffin town part of Montreal. Which is. Near the peel basin. It's it's kind of an area that's undergoing gentrification. So you've got that. Now, you've got a Tampa Bay rays owner. Who knows he's not gonna stay there? Now, you've got people with money in Montreal in a ballpark. You've got a Commissioner who is committed to this one of the things the tappan though as well, as in addition to all that sort of falling in place, one of the things rob Manfred, the Commissioner says look I realized the reality of the situation now is I'm not going to ask you to build a ballpark. And then give you a team he cited Quebec, cities, and example, building an arena. No NHL team. You said not gonna do that. I just need see the plans. I didn't need the shovel in the ground show me the financing show me the plans haven't nailed down. And we'll try to get a team in. Montreal. Stuart Sternberg owns the raise lives in New York. So what kind of happened in the past couple of months? People started to realize well who says Stuart Sternberg has to sell the raise or Montreal has to get an expansion team. What a Stuart Sternberg said moved the race to Montreal. I live in New York. It's not a big flight. Maybe. I wanna be a majority partner. But maybe I want twenty percent. Maybe bell media comes in for twenty percent char or Stephen Bronfman and Mitch Garber have thirty percent each and away we go. So all these things have kind of have fallen in place if you'd asked me for years ago. I would've said there's no chance of baseball returning to much you're on my lifetime. Now, I'd be stunned. If there isn't a major league team in Montreal within the next six or seven years five years might be a little tight, but just sort of planning this thing out of that. I can see baseball back in Montreal in six seven years at the outside. I'll be surprised if it isn't

Kyle Lowry does not comment on DeMar DeRozan trade by Toronto Raptors
"Town or sitting on your couch, swiping left and right on your tender, looking for someone to Netflix and chill. We like to play a little, not necessarily. We're gonna start with Kyle Lowry who is out in Vegas for USA basketball, and we haven't really heard much from Kyle about everything that's gone down with the raptors about his buddy Dhamar to and getting traded about the arrival of quite Leonard. Danny green. And there was an interesting exchange today. Here's sports nets, Tim, and sid asking him about qui- the reporter. Do you have a relationship with Kawhi Lowery. No, I know him. We have mutual respect reporter. Have you spoken to him since the deal Lowery? Probably, yeah, I think so. I don't know reporter to Kawai Lowry. I dunno reporter you don't know if you've spoken to by Lowry. No reporter. What do you mean Lowry? I don't know if I've spoken to him reporter. Are you not sure? Do you not remember. Lowery. I'm not sure he's not here. So I, I haven't spoken to him reporter on the phone. I mean, Lowry. I haven't spoken to him. No reporter iovine spoken to him Lowry. No. And then later what he was asked, if people might read into his silence and assume he's not happy about the trade he was asked, that'd be an accurate assessment. He said USA basketball has been fun. Good one. So Nick, I ask you, are you okay with Kyle Lowry's weird responses. This one is very easy for me. I says, I'll will. Lowrey lost his best friend in in this deal. He didn't. It didn't die, but somebody lost his bed in in really quickly for context. I did a whole story on this at the beginning here, Lowry into Rosen, took Uber's back and forth from shootarounds that the raptors had on the road. Just those two always. They were always together on the road hanging out their family's very close. I am sure this whole trade has crushed, Kyle Lowry in the moment. Can the raptors be better? Certainly, but I have no issue with him wanting no part in in discussing this calories. Always very good with the media. He's a personable guy, but he does not want to get into losing his best friend from a professional standpoint in dealing with lettered who doesn't sound like many people are close to on either one of his new team, the raptors or his old team, the Spurs. I'm gonna have to agree with you and one up unit because I'm going to. Yeah, man. It's just too soon for people to keep asking everyone to move on. Oh, Dhamar just be ready to move onto his new team. Yeah, he will be given the minute. He dedicated everything to this team. He thought he was going to be there forever. Yeah, it's a business but give them some time and same with Lowry. I mean, if you want to try to figure out what his silence means, he's not being that silent. Check his Instagram as he's posting videos with his buddy to Marta, Rosen is reunited at USA basketball, then pulling up to mini camp together that he's telling us all we need to know. And I liked the loyalty and listen. They're going to be enemies when they hit the court come time for for the season to start. I'm sure he's going to be a good dude to collide, and he's going to try to make a relationship there, but you need time. So I do not blame him one bit moving on according to the eater website, there will be a new food show featuring Gordon Ramsay and of. With the departure of Anthony bourdain. We're all looking for something to fill that hole of other cultures and other other places, other foods and other other communities. And well, Gordon Ramsay is here to fill that hole except unfortunately, instead of doing the things that Anthony bourdain did to connect everybody around the world and to pay on edge to the cultures and the foods of other places and help us to get to know those people and those foods better Gordon Ramsay uncharted which is set to be on the National Geographic channel next year is going to have him take in the traditional food ways attempt to go about discovering the undiscovered and finally engage in a kitchen competition against the locals pitting his own interpretations of regional dishes against the tried and true classics. So he's set to walk up to someone's a boiler and tell her, no, I can do this better..
