"three hundred million dollar" Discussed on Midnight Double Feature - A Film Podcast
"Black shape is implies that it's it's qualities not that great ride a mainland. Because he's had all these massive like massive movies that are old right like honest. I really really great. I'm i honestly. There's a lot of avatar. Had at the i i enjoy avatar under overseen it look. It's nothing special. I like people out there like he was lost minds when that movie came out like a people people either love it or hate it you know and i'm just somewhere in the middle. I'm just like it's it's fine. And because it's cool to like hate things that a popular people also really don't like titanic this whole if you go to film twitter billing no titanic. Didn't really care for our into fucking homily and all those that bullshit like just well. You know one thing. I think is looking at james cameron's movies except for t one like a you know maybe the abyss a lot of like this seems i know two hundred million dollar movie but it really doesn't seem like anything compared to t- to titanic avatar like those are like dude globally. You or you're like eating the world at that point. Yeah that's such a huge movie. So i think maybe true lies the fact that it is just kind of you know it's not groundbreaking. Maybe the fact that it is something. It is something that somebody else could have directed. It wouldn't be the same film. Might still be a good film. But i nobody else could have made like tea to you. Know like that's not dr tannock tar sir this article anything about that. The fact that like the the concept on the surface is not concept. You know yeah right. It's not a it's not. yeah it's not aliens. It's not tater this hefty lumpy. John constantly is fucking code. See titanic titanic breaks through that service. Oh i spoke through that surface Because i think of the scale of its production right like it was it was it was a three hundred million dollar movie they they. They crushed the real dynamic. Titanic and they film it. I it just seems dude i was. I'm sorry i was playing sunset overdrive and there's a guy who send you on a mission to collect off and he just stays in a submarine and his name is Probably no it's the name of the What's the name if you don't wanna take writing credit for alex mathie and he's like my name. Our smith smithian. I'm making a movie about a plane crash. And i need you to be six hundred million dollars like oh my god awesome. Sorry that's awesome. No no yeah but like. I think we'll just a just trying to understand why this movie isn't as widely recognized. Might be people might think that this is not you can honestly conflict this as a john mccain and maybe you can honestly be like oh i thought that was directed by john madden last last action hero. Kim around bid. I think couple years after this starring on eldest donald as well visually looks pretty similar in our visually. You've got these big action sequences ronald that. Obviously it's a less maybe like the quality of its all that great the writings as strong. Yeah yeah but but you know. I think what you what you said is right. I think. Terminator one Teeter aliens titanic and avatar. I think those are movies that can earlier be directed by james covering whereas this site is something that can probably be handled by john. Mattanen at this time especially as well right. Yeah and not that you know. Mckiernan is less of a director. James cameron but i mean but like i mean james cameron like johnny turn diehard predator like those are all fantastic movies for taiba right. I feel like. He's kind of like the james cameron before james cameron at that time like he's cranking out these incredible movies and especially like true lies. I think that maybe maybe it does have something to do. With the fact that it's just like shoot and brown people and maybe there's some you know september the eleventh kind of feeling behind this seeing that harrier jet and seeing like nukes. Go off. And shit like yeah. That's headed a little too close to home now. Like maybe that's part of it. May i who knows was some of these movies man. I i felt like i was hitting this like what is wrong with this movie that this different from everything and now that i'm over that hump i can enjoy talking about so it's like it's getting not worked out in your back and i'm like i will stop for thirty minutes ten minutes into this movie and talk about what's wrong with it because something is up here but i hate to. This is such a sourdough. did you hear about elisa. She's she was like. I was like god. Damn it man. And and i you know it sucks because obtained the movie and at the same time. It's something where it's like. You know growing up. I knew what powder was like with victor alva- stop is like it's kind of fucked up you know versus now we're hearing about it like decades later my god damn it you know it's like retroactively. I feel like shit for liking it. But still it's it's i i grew up with it. It's still a really enjoyable movie but there is kind of like that. You have to take a minute. That doesn't a bit of a dark cloud above it. Yeah i look anyone listening. Doesn't the back story a dish. Kerr who plays the daughter in this movie. claims allegedly right. I'm not. I'm not saying that. He wanted anything Alleges that one of the crew melissa I can't remember who he she. She goes stunt double from what i was reading. 'cause i fly allies them more than one. Why was rating that. It was Whoever rigs her to the crane at the end because it was like she was like i felt like i had no etta gar. What this much like. I felt like i had nowhere to go. Because this ultimately this guy looks off to my safety on the movie you know i had nothing. I couldn't say anything right. Which is which is tara. She's twelve she's twelve making this and and there's a line where it's like she's fourteen now man. I was like the fox he is. I got a niece in high school. That looks fuck and their ages. Similar but like dude. That's outrageous now. That is flushing meadows Promise this movie. She's fucking totally does though like that's all i can think i was like. Oh my god like khaki tunisia but it's up by the way elisa dish boot now dude i remember her from bringing on. I like track back. I never seen that. Never watched it. But i the reason i brought it up because it's something where it's like. I don't wanna like linger on it because it is. It is like man that sucks but i feel like it's something when you watch one of these movies you have to kind of if you enjoy the movie you have to kind of take your take take take take the good with the bat at least acknowledge it and be like you know. That's if you know a more power to our hope they fucking cut that guys balls off. That's what happened. His the thing are like if. I watch kevin spacey movie like. It's that's what we've brought this up so many times. The usual suspects right. I'm gonna watch the usual suspects as usual suspects. Do you know what i mean like. It's it's it's tough i really. I like tom cruise movie every time. I watch a tom cruise. Movie a separate the scientology like the the actor from what he's doing right. It's much much harder when it's an actual crime been committed that happens on like not on the.
Bitcoin Mining With Mike Colyer
"Let's start with Just remind everyone what is foundry and kind of the founding story of this in terms of what you guys are building. Yeah so Foundries a wholly owned subsidiary of the digital currency group and we're focused on supporting decentralised infrastructure. So both on the proof of work side and proof of stake side and We got started about will almost two years ago and We've been building out both sides of that business. We've scaled now to Approaching i think fifty employees which we've got an amazing team here at foundry and we provide so we might ourselves. We provide advisory services. We provide equipment financing. And we've deployed about three over three hundred million dollars now into the north american mining ecosystem. And then we've launched our north american mining pool which supports institutional size minors the the publicly traded minor. So they have a clear transparent pool to to mine in and We've got an advisory businesses. Well helping helping Miners get into the business. Staking side we. We now stake on about twenty different protocols. essentially like the infrastructure team for dc g. and and the other subsidiary companies dot. So when you think about what's changed over the last year so since we last talked There's been a bunch of changes growth in positive developments with foundry and also. There's been absolute chaos in the mining industry in general. Maybe let's start with kind of the market itself in how you evaluate what's transpired last twelve months or so. And then how has that allowed. You guys to navigate this kind of where are you both from a size standpoint and then also Kind of what. You are doing a service standpoint whereas most of your attention or energy right now you know. The mining space moves incredibly fast. It's like every thirty days sixty days. It's it's changing it's evolving and which makes it super exciting i would. I would say that you know about four years ago. I pivoted my whole career to go into the mining space. I don't think i could ever go back to the traditional world. It just moves way too
Q2-2021 Biotech Earnings, Commercial-Stage Biotech Suffers
"And the first company. I want to talk about is by jin which is a real favorite of mine ticker symbol b. I believe and they're sitting at a fifty billion dollar market cap and what we heard is that they announced q to revenue of two point. Seven eight billion dollars and this is compared to twenty twenty cutie revenue of three point six eight billion so huge decline there and that is mostly due to a decrease in their ms revenue of twenty four percent year over year. And if you remember. When i went through the biogen episode i did. The majority of their revenue comes from their ms franchise and since the lawsuit against by jin was in favor of the generic companies including mylan they have launched generic versions of tech der which are now at risk because by genus filed an appeal. And what this means is that these generic companies are going to be able to sell their generic version of tech era at the risk of biogen winning on appeal in which case Going to be able to litigate against them for patent infringement. So during this time at which we don't know what the status of the appeal is gonna be biden's gonna start losing. Ms franchise market share pretty quickly to these generic companies. So we're starting to see this now with these abysmal. M s numbers now. The company did increase their guidance for the rest of the fiscal year. Only by about two hundred to three hundred million dollars so not a huge amount but they said that. This is due to better-than-expected ms sales. So who knows what's going on there but really the bulk of the call was the excitement around the addy home commercialization efforts and now just to say the amount of home revenue was only like one or two million dollars so very much a drop in the pan not very impressive so far. But it's because all of these infrastructure efforts need to take place in order to get hospitals up and running in order to treat patients
Jim Cramer and Rob Maurer Discuss Tesla's Q1 Earnings
"One of the biggest earnings reports to come so far this week has been tesla came last night. Now i want to bring on his various guests raum our host daily and an investor in tesla. Now rob i want to start by discussing tesla's overall earnings which should beat wall street. Expectations and revenue was up. Seventy four percent from a year ago kentucky this momentum going. Yeah definitely think so. I think what we're seeing a little bit of a sell off. Today is probably a lot of excitement than tends to build into earnings and then when there's no massive surprise or something like that. Although tested beat they were driven by some one time items when there's no massive surprise or updated guidance or something like that investors can move onto the next thing but for investors that are willing to take a long-term view on tesla which most people should be this really you know decade-long girl stories. We've talked about. I think you know. There's a lot to be excited about from from their innings. Report yesterday rob. How much did they really make it. Back up the credits. That cup the Yeah so they reported a non gap net income of just over a billion dollars. Half of that was regulatory credits. So about half a billion there One hundred million came from the sale of bitcoin so tests on key one acquired about one and a half billion in bitcoin. They sold about ten percent of their stake. Somewhere around fifty percent profit on on that sale of about one hundred hundred billion or one hundred million there so backing out those things You know they earned about four hundred million dollars but On a non gab basis on a gap baselessly Technically back out the regulatory credits. They still have lost. But that's not a great way to look at it. Tesla has super high stock based compensation right now because of elon. Musk's co compensation plan three hundred million dollars of their stock based compensation. This quarter was because of musk's plan. That's not gonna continue. There's only about seven hundred million dollars left in total on the plan yet to be recognized. So if tesla continues the pace that they were out in key one. That's only gonna continue for a more quarters. And i think over the next few quarters. We're gonna see that decline anyway as It's just gonna take a little bit longer for the rest of that to be recognized.

Jack Dorsey’s Square, Inc. is buying a majority stake in Jay-Z’s streaming service Tidal
"Square got a lot of people to do double takes this morning by announcing that it is acquiring quote a significant majority stake in jay z's streaming music service title for two hundred and ninety seven million dollars. Jay z will also join squares board of directors quoting the new york times title which jay z bought in partnership with other artists. In two thousand. Fifteen for fifty. Six million dollars provides members access to music music videos and exclusive content from artists but the streaming music industry has been dominated by competitors like spotify apple and amazon in two thousand seventeen. Jay z sold thirty three percent of the company to sprint for an undisclosed amount after merger sprint is now a part of t mobile earlier this week. Jay z bought back the shares from t mobile and most will be sold onto square as part of this deal. Mr dorsey and jay z began to discuss the acquisition quote. A few months ago said jesse deroga- a sect who will lead title on an interim basis. It started as a conversation between the two of them. He said they found that sense of common. Purpose and quote. Mr dora guscott said square which was founded in two thousand nine will offer financial tools to help titles artists collect revenue and manage their finances quote. There are other tools. They need to be successful and that we're going to build for them. He said and quote so this is one of those stories where the speculation and chatter around. It is almost as interesting as the news itself. I of course you've got the celebrity angle. Jay z and jack dorsey. It actually turns out that they are good buds. They vacation together. You might have seen those yacht pictures from the paparazzi okay but square a payments company and title a music streaming service of somewhat dubious success. How does a tie between them. Make any kind of sense. Here's what jack dorsey himself had to say. Quote it comes down to a simple idea finding new ways for to support their work. New ideas are found at the intersections. And we believe there is a compelling one between music and the economy making the economy work for artists is similar to what square has done for sellers square start at twelve years ago by giving small sellers a simple tool in order to participate more fully in the economy and grow. We did the same for individuals with cash app which now enables a comprehensive set of financial services for folks who weren't able to access it before title started with the idea of honoring artists by being owned and led focused on an uncompromised experience of the art. It's refreshing and right. The vision only grow stronger as it's matched with more powerful tools for artists inclusive of new ways of getting paid given what square has been able to do for sellers of all sizes and individuals through cash app. We believe we can now work for artists to see the same success for them and us. We're going to start small and focus with the most critical needs of artists and growing their fan bases and quote. So he doesn't exactly say it there but everyone is reading between the lines looking around at this current. Nfc madness. and remembering though. I didn't tell you about this. That jack dorsey and jay z recently announced. They were creating an endowment with five hundred. Bitcoin's worth twenty three million dollars plus two teams working on bitcoin development initially in africa and india. And so everyone's thinking. This is a crypto play as peter kaku tweeted quote. I would be surprised if there wasn't an nf story. Here that fits the jack story and seems to be what he's hinting at in his tweets. But again you don't need to own title to sell jay z's and tease this would be weird if square was buying a music streaming service that people actually used but it's much weirder. It's a publicly traded. Financial services company. Buying a failed music streaming company. I guess square shareholders won't complain because they've already signed on for the jack dorsey experience but whatever awesome artists and square story. Jack is promising here. Doesn't require a three hundred million dollar payout. To jay z quote. Other people can see other angles. Here let me give you some counter takes. This is jason delray quote. Plenty of people on the square. Buying title is dumb side. But i'll be on the other end. Could it be a mistake. Sure is the deal relationship based sure. Many are but squares incredible things for small merchants and for everyday people with cash so why not artists and quote. This is scott belsky quote for a big company to create an entirely new center of gravity inside it. You need a forcing function with this lens. And the growing need to outfit the creator economy with financial tools. This seems a logical step for square and quote. This is dr sanjay quote square acquiring title to focus on new ways for artists. Monetize is going to be seen as the watershed moment of the creator economy. We're tilting away. From platforms capturing all the value to the people creating the content doing so directly for fans or indirectly via ads and quote and finally turner. Novak goes really really wild but then it doesn't actually seem all that wild when you say it out loud and then think about it especially when you see the products that twitter has been building out lately. Newsletters spaces quote jacqueline so deep into the crater economy with twitter. The past six months it leaked into square a great acquisition. That will ten acts everything square has been doing with consumer user acquisition. Not outrageous to think he merges square and twitter at some point and quote.

I get the number here here. It is eighty million dollars they sold. It wasn't even the whole catalog eighty million dollars. Fleetwood mac and dillon skate. Like columbine could probably name more wallflower songs and he can bog way. Bob dole i. It's right over my head. I have no idea i look. I'm surprised he got three hundred million. Based on the fact that that ship has sailed a long time ago dylan receives a lump sum between two hundred and four hundred I'm not sure what the what. The stevie nicks sold their publishing catalog for eighty million dollars. The dylan portfolio six hundred songs while other bands who have sold their catalogs sold. You know taking the money. Blondie barry manilow and the estates of john lennon and kurt cobaine. I believe john lennon the beatles. Paul mccartney bought them for like a ridiculous amount of money Like eight hundred million. Paul mccartney owns well. Didn't jackson by michael jackson and then mccray jackson and a falling out story there. But there's only one to look up jerry. Three hundred million eighty million two hundred to four hundred million. What did what did brian. Wilson's father sell the beach boys catalogue for another against the wishes without the kids. Even knowing and i think he sold it for like seventy dollars and a coke or something new never spoke to his father again obviously but if the beach boys is the one you would want because of the catchy jingles. Yeah that's true point and that the father sold it for nothing. He had no idea what he had. And what the value of wasn't a guy goes. Hey i'm gonna dig deep here. I'll give you five hundred dollars. Whereas i sold and brian wilson was never the same after it happened. It's a good point. But i think dylan's got a lot of those you know catch even though they you know might be whatever. The revolutionary songs at times they are a change in blowing in the wind and songs like that which will which will fit nicely in commercials. And we'll be sick of them all with and i'm sure he had control over it and limited the exposure but i guarantee you. He sold the rights to some two songs to some commercials. I assume right Yeah i guess. So i mean i don't blame me if you're gonna die soon and you wanna take care of you. Offspring kids grandkids. You say. What the hell. What do i care if not be capitalizing on all the different changes that are going on in the music industry. I bet it's like a five person team that he has controlling the catalog right. Like it's a he. He owns time. Bob no one said a need the money for anything the the couple couple of years ago. Long before covid were dylan on went on tour and performed at three hundred nights in a year three hundred nights in one year deal and he was like seventy five and i don't know anyone that went to see him. He wasn't playing the big rooms anymore but he's just addicted to performing and singing his songs and i must have just an insane amount of money already. I mean just. But it's like what bob cousy sold all his Collectibles always memorabilia. He said what do i need it for. This is going to pay for my grandkids education. And can you blame him for that. I wouldn't. I'm a big lira. Guy when it comes to rock and roll. If you consider dylan rock and roll and dylan for what i again. He's not my bag particularly. I don't have any bob dylan on my phone.

Journal the suspension could last two months or a little longer according to send a world's CEO speaking with New York Times the suspension. The second one for the company since the pandemic started affects forty thousand US employees and fifty five hundred in Britain and Ireland. Industry Trade. Paper variety call last weekend decision to suspend operations sudden and shocking officials made the choice after. MGM On Friday postponed the release of its next James Bond movie no time to die. MGM had planned to release the double o seven Caper in November. Now it's planned tentatively, we assume for next April even pre pandemic theaters depended on blockbuster films to fill seats since March studios have been postponing releases and in many cases moving them to streamers instead. But postponement of the twenty seventh bond film was a crippling blow to theaters counting on the release to make some money. This year according to variety the decision was so abrupt that Cinta world didn't even tell employees about the suspensions rather the company left thousands to learn about their fates in newspaper headlines and tweets workers who belong to the Cinema World Action, group and employee collective tweeted that the company gave them. No warning workers have been left out of discussions that should have included our voices they stated adding that to find out you may no longer have a job from the media is awful. Sin A world lost more than one and a half billion dollars in the first half of the year. The New York Times reports AMC theaters is also struggling AMC stock dropped ten percent Monday morning after cinema world's news analysts say it will have trouble staying afloat in six months unless film attendance jumps or the company raises more capital according to CNBC. With. The movie industry in Dire Straits, there's a whole lot of finger pointing as you might imagine, the CEO of Cinema World told The Wall Street Journal. Movie. Studios. Just aren't supplying films theaters need to keep operating he compared to a grocery shop without anything on the shelves but studio executives say they're postponing big releases because they can't turn a profit as because American viewers are still avoiding the theaters that have been open. All eyes have been on the Christopher Nolan action. Adventure movie tenant to jump start the more of an industry as we reported right Here, in August in normal times, pulled a couple of billion dollars billion with a B. Nolan is the most people director in Hollywood but tenants September release was lackluster to date. The movie has earned only forty five million dollars in ticket sales across the US NEW YORK. Times reports it's performed better overseas global receipts currently total three, hundred, million dollars, but the movie cost two, hundred million to make and millions more to promote for studio executives. Those numbers just don't add up and to reason enough for them to postpone the potential blockbusters like no time to die. So what will save the movie business it depends on whom you ask cinema world's chief is waging a PR war against New, York Governor Andrew Cuomo for not reopening theaters new. York. In Los Angeles are the two most important American markets for theater chains that they both remained closed as contributing to the weakness of the film business but with Covid nineteen cases climbing again in places like Brooklyn and Queens Governor Cuomo is standing firm.

Takeaways from the NYT report on Trump's tax returns
"Never give a tax return when being audited. They're extremely complex people wouldn't understand him now the house goes and such defending they WANNA know every deal. I've ever done since declaring his candidacy for President Donald? Trump. Has refused to share his tax returns and gone to court to stop them being released. On Sunday The New York Times published an investigation into more than twenty years worth of Mr Trump's taxes, but not the documents behind them to protect its sources. The New York Times an explosive report despite receiving over four hundred, million dollars through two thousand eighteen report showed he paid paltry amounts of federal tax in recent years. The report claims that Mr Trump paid remarkably little tax since the turn of the Millennium. It suggests that many of the president's businesses are chronically loss-making. and it puts numbers to just how deeply personally indebted the president is. The revelations prompted a familiar retorted. News it's totally fake news made up fake. We went through the same store as you could ask me the same questions for years ago had a litigated this and talk about it. They are the same questions questions that arose in the presidential debates between Mr Trump and Hillary Clinton almost exactly for years ago maybe he doesn't want the American people. All of you watching tonight to know that he's paid nothing in federal taxes because trump's rebuttal at the time that makes me smart smart. Tonight another set of presidential debates this time between Mr Trump and Joe Biden. It seems certain that once again, Mr Trump's accounting practices will figure into the discussion. The big headline takeaways on that he paid. No federal income tax whatsoever intended the fifteen years through two, thousand seventeen and in twenty sixteen seventeen the year that he ran for the presidency his first year old in the presidency he paid any seven hundred fifty dollars in federal Income Tax James. Ashville economists, Washington bureau chief. His company's myriad companies were making truly enormous losses over these years. Presidents companies have been losing hundreds of millions of dollars. He's heavily indebted at the same time, and the the record also show us that hundreds of millions of debt. In fact, around four hundred millions of data he's personally on the hook for his liable to fall due mostly within the next couple of years. So it creates a picture of a heavily heavily indebted loss-making businessman on a truly Gargantuan scale who's been paying little or no federal income tax and has serious debt worries ahead of him as he faces a cash crunch meanwhile. But how can it be? He's paid. So little tax over all of that time. I guess two main ways one is that he appears to be setting a large amount of personal family expenditure against his business revenues. For example, he is setting his family home expenses, his plane expenses, even his apparently also colossal head writing expenses against VAT revenue but by far, the biggest means that he's avoiding paying large amounts of tax walls taking in hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue is by setting those revenues against the enormous losses that he's making overall to give you just some taste of the scale of that loss making it. Seems that the president has lost more than three, hundred, million dollars since the turn of the century on his golf courses alone he's lost more than fifty five, million dollars on his Washington DC hotel, which has become a sort of symbol for trump world of the president's firm hold on the capital, and yet it seems it's losing money hand over fist, and all of that is above board. He may already been some difficulty over the scale of losses that he's claiming to set against his revenues. The long trailed audit that his tax affairs. From the IRS we learn relate to attacks refunded that he received decade or so ago of seventy-three million dollars related, it appears to loss-making casinos in Atlantic city a business that he walked away from though we don't know it appears that there is an least an allegation or suspicion that he may have profited from those casinos even as he walked away from. Them if that is the case, he's not liable that tax refund that tax refund plus subsequent interest would now mean a hundred million dollar bill for the president. From the IRS, are you yourself surprised I mean that the president has been fighting so hard to keep this under wraps I just wonder how much you're surprised by what you see in these files. I don't think we're surprised by any of this. We already knew something of the scale of the president's loss-making. He declared a loss of nearly a billion dollars back in the ninety s sufficient to avoid paying any federal income tax for around a couple of decades that was in the sense is remarkable as anything that we've learned from this latest enormous cache of additional detail. But there are a couple of really significant scoops and then the fact that he could be on the. Hook for so much money from the IRS. If the audit goes against him in the fact that he's personally liable for so many hundreds of millions of dollars of loan that will fall due in the next few years. That also is a very significant detail in for those that worry that the president may be compromised that his indebtedness could lead him to make judgements that the American people might have calls to question for those worries. This is I think sort of additionally inflaming. But I mean the picture that emerges here regardless of the creativity of the accounting is somebody who is not running businesses very well. So. Donald Trump entered politics back in twenty fifteen claiming to things that he would bring his business genius to the Serbs the American people make government work better, and that he would sort of right the wrongs that lofty elite were habitually visiting upon the hardworking vulnerable American people and I think the of broad takeaway from this trove of tax information is either Donald Trump is an absolutely appalling businessman in which case is I claim is hard to support or he's bilking the treasury of millions of dollars of avoided tax that he should be paying in which case his second contention is also rather heart support. And do you think either I if either can be parched or or stood up, we'll have any influence on the election on the debates this week. Let's let's break that down Jason I. Think this is not going to be a sort of major vote moving scandal. We've had equivalent scandals that have that have not moved the president's support up or down much a tool and I. think there's no reason to expect this to do so and yet it's significant significant. Because the president opinion polls consistently tell us is substantially behind Joe Biden in this race with only little more than a month to go before the election. What this does is put yet another hurdle in front of his trying to re come on the news cycle get on the front foot, take the attack to Mr Biden nine. We may see some of that in the first presidential debate tonight where Joe Biden has really been handed the script by the New York Times as it of opening attack on a president who loses so much money in his business of as pays such little taxes and result.

Midnight Patriot, nation welcome to NFL. Mid Nitrates it is you boy spartan here with the the ever ever pot and flaming premix A good to have you as D to ultra. Sports nerds. In specifically football cards. On the end on the. Patriot staff. Phoenix tonight decided that we were actually GonNa do kind of a deep dive into what is pissing us off most about NFL and. Most pro sports in general to be quite honest. But we're GONNA focus on the NFL in this particular case because. Both Phoenix, myself have. A long history of both fandom and and. Playing Sports, we have a unique appreciation of what it takes. More it doesn't and how it is devolved into the into this shit show that it is. Just, we're just GONNA go from there. So Phoenix you had you had some thoughts that you wanted to start with go ahead. Well specifically. I I have a major gripe with the NFL in general. Being more politicized. And the. Let's End Racism. Okay, I get my left. Black lives matter. No sorry. They do and I agree with the message just not the manor which is being delivered. We've said that before on the organization go ahead. Exactly. All of a sudden you know we have a organization. That's Through much. Yup You can't do this. You know we have this. AFOREMENTIONED SCAMMED EMMA GOING ON. You can't do this. You can't do this. Well Yeah you can't. Okay. And then we have the social unrest of the nation being thrown into. A sporting. Venues. that. For All intents purposes let's call it. What is it's an escape. It allows us the viewer. Fan. That three four hours. Sunday evening Monday night whatever that. It gives us that escape from eager live love get up go to work and deal with people you come home you deal with cranky wife and kids don't listen dog that Shit's in your shoes. You've taken that away. And now have made it. Well we got to get on board with this. Well, we're relevant to. We're a large. Organization we goner? A multitude of platforms. That we have viewership. There any given? Day that we have competition So now we're going to. Paint messages in the end. We're going to have. Athletes will we're going to kneel to show solidarity. I got a huge problem with that and for our listeners I'm sure you have your own platforms as well. The American flag comes I stand for Gore country you back your country everything else second berry period. That's my thought on that. That's the way it is. Unfortunately when. The NFL NBA MLB hockey underwater basket weaving has become politicized in what we have to show solidarity with this. I have a question. Are you showing solidarity four? Message. Or are you As the NFL did let's put. The name of a known fell one on a helmet. Let's. Let's praise this guy because shot back when a an. Amplifier point in accused rapists. Is someone with a warning active warrants? For Rape Yes. So here in my eternal gripe with this, that will probably go down in flames just like the rest of them. Why are we? In fact. Standing behind. Someone. WHO BREAKS THE LAW? WHO does walk. Yes. They didn't listen. They got shot in the back whatever. House we say. Extenuating circumstances came to be that this ended up how that was. We have to stand behind this person as a form of. Instead of. Waiting, for all the facts that come out be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. And then move forward from there. Well. That's the real question. Isn't it is is you know? All we've seen is what has been allowed to be released. Okay I mean look I think in his thing I agree with everything you just said save one thing. Okay. I don't think demand deserve to be shot seven times point blank in the back now. Having said that. He has an active warrant for his arrest, what he should not have done to prevent that whole situation was to surrender. Get handcuffed and be taken into to engage whatever process there is. Okay, you don't fight cops in the street if you do. You mess with the bull, you get the horns. Okay. He's admitted he was armed. He's admitted he was going for a different arm- armament. Okay. And what do we expect the COPS to die? I don't think so you know I'm. In the eyes of them, that's probably what they're saying. Well. Preserved by life fuck yours. Well exactly. The COP Exactly and and my my attitude would be y is either one wrong as far as you know, one one has a duty to behave professionally the other has a duty to follow the law. Or face the consequences you know it would have saved him from getting shot in the back if he had stopped if he turned around if he'd Toronto. Surrendered Okay Understand that I understand the Warren has has since been vacated, but that's beside the point. When a COP's his I warrant for your arrest I mean you're supposed to do is say what am I being arrested for? Okay I'll go peacefully ears might whereas my lawyer yeah. Instead, of no fuck you fight you tooth and nail, and if get away up the war still there, but you don't have me. Right. Exactly. Exactly and you know I got I got I got a I. got a interject because you know. My personal opinion is if you probably agree Is this. Cancer of case. started. It may have it may have had other sources. Okay. But its primary. Protagonist, in growth factor was Colin. Kaepernick a few years ago and I don't say that in a flattering manner. Okay. I've said it before the my opinion that Colin Kaepernick is the biggest fraud on the planet as pertains to the NFL. At least Ryan leaves when he signed what Leash Langley, when he signed, he knew he was shit approved the wish she had any faded off politely into the sunset because he saw a gay. young just tell the story as I. Recall it and you you you feel free to chime in when you. When when you when you if I'm off base okay. A lot of people don't remember this but you and I as King's football and many things in life have a have a memory quite a bit longer than than your average goldfish. Okay? I remember watching the first incidents of Cabernet court on code kneeling and he wasn't fucking Neil. He had just had an argument with his with with the head coach and I don't think it was Kelly. It may have been horrible. But he had the yard, the head, the argument with Joe it was horrible wasn't horrible yet. So out of you probably saw the clip to you can't find it now because it's Youtube everywhere else. He had he had A. Verbal altercation with Harbhajan and I can only assume in what we were told. You know later was that harbaugh. told him. No you're not starting a colon Cabernet got very unprofessional and like the diva quarterback that he is. Turn Turnhill stomped over to the bench slammed his helmet down in plop disaster down on the bench now by sheer and toll coincidence. Anthem had just started. The anthem it just started when that HAP-. ACI. I know you remember this is I think you and I talked about this at the time that it happened because we were mocking him because when I weren't weren't quarterbacks when we played the game and we know what divas they are even princesses, they are this. If you remember and I know you do espn headlines a couple of days. Later words were that Colin Kaepernick was going to be fine. Substantially for multiple instances of unprofessional conduct conduct deleterious to the team. Leading up to the altercation with harbaugh that happened where he plops his ass on the bench you remember that ideas that. Dakhla and it was it was post practice I. Believe I want a That later that week that a reporter asked him. About the state of the fines and Based on his lip based on. Let's just call it what it was temper Tantrum. Okay. And that's when Cabernet sold all this bullshit about he was doing it in protest etcetera etcetera and he played the race card, which we all know the press eats up hook line and sinker and never ever questioned. Ever On. Me It came across and partner Jackie No, you're good. The the instance of which we are discussing out my first thought on that was yes it's a temper tantrum and I'm about to be busted for having a temper tantrum. So allow me to make up some juicy. To Garner more attention to the fact that. This is happening to be Gimme Gimme. GimMe and I lost my starting spot. Well, that's the that's the point I'm making. He played the race card to avoid fight. For on professional conduct and he was he was outright given a past. I don't think he ever actually even actually got find something that was overlooked too is that is that nick is not a person of color is really not us he is a multi-racial okay and part of that find that he was going to get for unprofessional conduct was calling somebody else on the field the N. Word back can't say here because quite frankly it's feds even and number two I don't WanNa get show you monetize but that said that was part of that that was part of the fine to be levied. The fine was vacated. Okay. Because he was successful, you successfully played the race card and got out. Okay and this whole shift started this snowball at that point. as we as we all know you know he was he was basically the the the face man for chip. Kelly's offense that you know while short term short term effective was absolutely not sustainable. Okay. We all know that. And you combine that with the fact that the guy had. Just over just under a shooting just over sixty percent for completion rate. Even in that offense at his best day, he was a mediocre quarterback surrounded by a bunch of very talented people. Okay. So now it has become the fact that you know this whole narrative has has escalated by people that that know nothing about the actual game because. Football is simple. It's not easy, but it's simple. Is. The ultimate meritocracy. Okay talent hard work equals success. Okay there's a lot of guys. We can probably point him out on the field you and I. There's a lot of guys that that. That just simply outworked their competition to get where they are I'll give you. I'll give you one prime example and right now they call him the goat Tom. De. Tom. Brady was drafted was I can remember he was drafted. He was I. Don't think he was Mr irrelevant. But he was real close. He was the very bottom. Yes. Six he was very close to the very end of end of the draft in and he is he outworked is is competition. Now granted drew bledsoe. If people can remember back set for was not a very good quarterback anyways. He was only borderline better than Ryan Leaf and he went down Tom Brady took over in the rest as they say district but. No? One ever questioned, Tom? Brady's work ethic in those dynasty years in in in New England. Okay. Because he outworked he, he worked his ass off. Yes he was talented. Yes. He's physically gifted but that plus hardwork dedication to his craft turned into in the in the the hardware for the hand so to speak. and. anyways back to my point about Cabernet. All, these people talking about how Catherine doesn't have a job because he's bad for business or half rights, they're only half rice. Now I posted this to the page I know you read you probably it is I. Think I read this week we went to this is from ESPN DOT COM itself. Okay. ESPN DOT. com. The actual date this was published as March twentieth two, thousand seventeen. By their staff writer Kevin Seaford. and. I am just going to read it. I'm. GonNa. I'M GONNA. Try to read the whole thing. I'm trying Doug only try to read the parts that are relevant. But those those listening. If you go to our face, a bitch facebook dot com slash midnight patriots. You'll be able to find this article and we shared it the title of it is calling Kabir Knicks based problem performance. Politics. Day It starts off real simple. So Don't over think why Colin Kaepernick is still a free age simply put years have passed since he was ineffective quarterback he's twenty nine years old has succeeded in an unsustainable scheme as part of a well populated group of former starters who also remain available at as this week began now getting that was march twenty, twenty, seventeen. So they were in free agents. Okay. Let's. Let's move on here. It's blamed Colin Kaepernick's unemployment on his protest is to misread the way NFL teams make personnel decisions. that. I don't think there's any more true statement on Earth. Do you I? MEAN THAT'S Yeah. So it goes on protests where does say at any type of business that if you have lackluster performance, did you are guaranteed two hundred million dollar job? Number One and two I was GONNA say there have been divas troublemakers in the NFL before? Okay and Kim's and? Lewis Terrell on. You know. List goes on and on. And let's not forget the NFL is the lead cut an outright banned ray rice running back from the Ravens for domestic violence. Okay. Before he was convicted. Suspended A. Peterson for disciplining his child. Yeah for banking hit saw. Yeah. Okay for spanking his own child. Okay. So now they put criminals names on their helmet. so by but I digress I digress let's get back to the article. Just to just to go just to go. Teams are swayed I by players potential or lack thereof to help them win protest or not kapernick would be under contract. Now, if he had demonstrable if he had played demonstrably better in recent years. Let's look closer at where capper nick is as a quarterback and why that has left him sitting in a group that also includes fellow free agents, Jay Cutler Josh mccown Ryan Fitzpatrick and Robert Griffin the third. Again keep in mind. This is from shelvin teachings of this is three years ago. Okay. But. It goes on to some of the reason I liked this 'cause this is based on facts not just you know a bunch of race baiting bullshit. Kapernick grid NFL success came as part of the San Francisco Forty niners read Options Skiing Twenty, twelve to twenty four. In those three years, he rushed for Fifteen, hundred, seventy, eight yards which okay. I will give credit that impressive gudgeon impressive number. For. More than any other quarterback with the exception of Rush Russell Wilson Cam Newton so let's just call it what it is. He was third rushing quarterback against. It breath. Okay. I will not fall the net. His. Success. He threw more than twice as many touchdown passes interceptions helped him compile eighth best time quarterback rating in the NFL seventy point to over that period. But even then capper nick was one of the lease most. Least Accurate quarterbacks is sixty point one completion percentage ranked twenty third in the NFL and has percentage of off target throws judged on video by espn stats and information ranked eighteen. So. Based on just the stats alone he was a middle of the pack quarterback middle of the pack. Does that mean that he's better than half the other guys absolutely does that mean that that you know the drama he brings? Outweighs his skills is still setting the money in the monetary investment probably. Okay I agree or disagree just on that statement there. I would agree that yeah, he's a middle of the road quarterback. He had some skill. At. That position. That offense. You're right. Would it work somewhere else probably not but that's Changing teams, you learned their offensive scheme you learn what they do best blend yourself into that and you become part of the team not a one man show. that. I, mean you'd have to agree that most had coaches that have half a brain would go sixty, four, sixty point one completion percentage. even if you're even if you're going to do A. A bootleg offense even if you're going to do a boot offense. Play I can. Still going to have to be better than sixty point one. Periods I mean just entered discussion. Quarter, you're talking college level quarterback. Even if you're on a naked, do either one side, you're still depending on receivers tied ends backs to be open at some point that you can actually say, Hey, he's opened easel bewitched of the two weevils need a cheese her who exactly exactly union able to identify and hit those targets or at least give your guys in a position to succeed you know. I'd like to. Bring to Light I. Not Very long after capital started his quest masqueraded by some of justice whatever you WANNA call it only because he got in my mind and correct me if I'm wrong, he got busted out period. That's just the way it is you through Tantrum he got his ass busted will now I gotta cover with this to cover that with this, and then all of a sudden we have one big lie that snowball into the entire solstice thing that's going on currently. You're. Going to look they had to go. He ended up in Washington. In front of US rest. Explaining his side of everything that goes on great. Denver Broncos of whom I am a fan. I it. Does not get into that because. Pirate about that right. That's ultimate digression. Go ahead, John. elway. It had in fact offer Catholic before your contract. said. Hey. COMPLA-. Can come down because it wasn't enough money. Wait a minute. Let's look at your stats a sixty sixty point something or other completion percentage. Yes. You had fifteen hundred yards rushing, which as we've discussed is pretty phenomenal quarterback save. Russell. Cam. Newton. Maybe rg three hundred healthy. That's stretching it buttle throw it in there. Anyway. I. Really. Wanted to see if capital could be plugged into that offense and sell. Well, that's the that's the real trick. Isn't it? I mean? End and let's be clear. He turned it down because the salary was too low, not the money. Or maybe remember correctly, he turned it down because John elway wanted to load the one at the loaded up with incentives and say, okay, you exceed this mark you get ex you this you get what we go to the playoffs and when you get Z. Experience Cetera so wasn't of excellent. Yeah. But exactly to perform at your very best as cut your in the NFL, they don't take ship nothing while the that's when the NFL stands for not for lofts. That and let's be honest. It was not only. Did he had he had to meet performance criteria he had to me behavior criteria, EXAC? elway and the broncos weren't going to stand for this s J. W. S. J. W. Crap. That he's pulling. So let's go back to the article real quick. It'll it'll. It'll really start driving the point home. Okay. So I believe he started kneeling rating was two fifteen. So. Article Goes On. The issues that we were just talking about the increasing. Or decreasing completion percentage decreasing accuracy except sets. Those issues intensified in Twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen amid forty nine ers. Coaching turmoil in talent drain since the start of the twenty fifth season Kapernick ranks get this. Last in the NFL thirty five all five passers in off target percentage is off target twenty, two point six percent of the time which when she is the least accurate quarterback in the. League. As of the twenty. Fifteen. It goes on. Is Complete. Complete is completion percentage ranks number thirty, two at fifty, nine point one. He was still one of the NFL's most productive Shink quarterbacks, ranking number four total yardage over all those years but it didn't mitigate his passing deterioration and this is in my mind. This is the absolute most important line in the yard or ear and an adult. There is no more important attribute for quarterback accuracy especially for a free agent who is shopping himself teams with various schemes. In, the long term a quarterbacks running ability is considered a complimentary skill and one that is story. Fade with age or because of injuries, scrambling ability and arms drank are secondary to whether you can hit the target. That analysis backed up by numbers essentially wreck stay shit out of this current narrative will Cohen Governor never draw. Back. Dinners. Any beds no sorry. Have a fucking job because he sucks. Sex At what he does also, there's a theory going around the going around that it was right about twenty, nine, hundred he met his I don't know if she's still has girlfriend whatever evidently these ideas about radical justice one I'd ever definitely his girlfriend is, is some sort of radical s j w as well, and he was too stupid to either a lever to the side or be not listen door and just agree to disagree on stuff but then again. Go ahead exactly what it is. Power Pussy with exactly exactly and you quite frankly I can't fault them for that because you know that's ninety percent of marriages happen. We'll just we'll just leave at this point. Is that right there? That's You were saying regarding his ability to suck. But it started then I mean he the guy the guy got lazy. He got loud. Through the race card to cover his shit then he couldn't back up his mouth with performance. You know do you your ears? Rocco's fat okay. Let's talk about just a second. Let's talk about Shannon Sharpe just for ten seconds or for a few seconds. Okay. Shannon Sharpe. Is An arrogant prick agree or disagree now When I hang on, hang on that said. Shannon Sharpe liked to run his mouth about a lot of stuff at a lot of different times also true. Yes. Yes. Shannon Sharpe never failed toback his mouth up with his physical actions on field. Also. True. Unless I'm Clinton mistake, it have you seen the. I know he's A. He's a beast. His and by that, I, mean his physique and his skill level we're just unprecedented but you know I do I think running your mouth there's unprofessional Mind that you buy then back it up on the field nut so much. I mean. Go ahead. If I if I remember correctly now, remember this because there is significant events happened in my life sixteen nineteen. broncos are in the midst of the run to Super Bowl thirty two. Tonight game. In Kansas City in Kansas. City. I can remember. Watching a few days later because of recovering from surgery on. Shannon. Sharpe was literally being drug halfway across the field for most of the game by his helmet because he was talking some serious Shit Oh. Yeah. I. Remember Correctly Dr Thomas. If. If I get an incorrect Thomas Yeah. So. So pissed off the guy, he knocking, Kane insane composure in his professionalism in the game. You got what? I think. Say He lit it up. He was like Yeah. That's ten to twelve for. The Gargantuan One, twenty, one, twenty, six, and what two touchdowns. Yeah he was a month. So. All of a sudden sanders our. Love the Guy I've actually met him. Helvin individual. Love Tall. But he can copious amounts of Shit Oh. Yeah. Oh yeah that that man can back his mouth up. Oh Yeah. We have an and. He. End Let's let's break that down from an NFL perspective. So I'm a personnel manager. Okay and I have Shannon Sharpe as a free agent. His name comes across the wire I go holy Fuck Ball sharps available, and I already know that a he's allowed mouth be he likes to talk shit and sees extremely opinionated man but D-. The Guy Backs should have on the field I picked up the phone. I pick up the phone and say Hello Mr Shannon. Trump's lawyer her agent. This is me at the I would like to pay your your plant, a lot of money obscene amount of money to come help us when football game sets. Ended up with the. Exactly for whatever he was with the Ravens what three years. Say but he wanted them for four super bowl with their to. The argument that Colin Kaepernick doesn't have a job because Hashtag grace is complete an utter bullshit. Bullshit and the the fact that Roger Goodell has bought into this Shit Hook Line and sinker is even worse. Okay. You would think that that to be the commissioner of of a National League or National Professional Sports League that race in what eight to ten billion dollars. A year in gross revenue. You have. You'd have to have an IQ above your shoe size. Goodell even that these people that that they're they're professing to support. Social Justice. Wise. He realized that the vast majority of them do not watch the Games couldn't tell you five players in the league and doesn't even know couldn't name five teams lot I mean. She probably I mean. Look at some of the fan base. Did Not tell you the difference three, four, three defense. Yeah don't try to get him to describe the Tampa to. Exactly or various offensive formation. You're the simultaneous simultaneous possession roll which you and I can quote by heart understand completely. Exactly. Our guys we've got another segment coming up right after this brief break. Stay tuned. Midnight Patriot nations spartan with a shameless plug for our new gear shop shop. Dot. MIDNIGHT PATRIOTS DOT COM.

Really, Shop Dot Midnight Patriots, Dot Com, and now back to the show. You know that's that said. I made a prediction in in midnight moment the last night moment and I want to run around wanted to run that by. Not. Only understand that the business portion of the of the game, but also the game itself. So this is going to the business portion now. One. Of the things that you and I both know is that owners very rarely. SAY WHAT THEY THINK Or say or reveal their plans in advance. Okay. I've noticed that the owners have remained. Suspiciously quiet. About the social justice campaign that's currently going on I do disagree with that. I mean like I said, I think Jerry Jones is really the only one that's actually made any sort of statement and it wasn't a very long. I ever Jones ever quiet. What that's that's my point. And say instead of instead of. Me thinks he protests too much. Me think she says nothing for more sinister Okay so I wanted to run this by this is my theory. Okay. Now we've confirmed the the the Monday night compal atrocity from last night. US. Or Susani from two nights ago that. We've confirmed that the viewership was down approximately twenty nine percent. Across the board in that double header. So if we take the two games Monday and the overall ratings of of being down for Sunday you're talking an average of of a twenty percent downer. It's one fifth of the audience of the television audience told the NFL the PISS off. Okay. Considering the the significant financial investment ESPN has for for the right. To. Monday night football. Let's just let's just call that loss unsustainable. Okay. So I am going to ask you to engage your owner brain for just a minute. Okay. So We're GONNA fast forward to the week after the Super Bowl's okay where things are notably notably quite Rosalie quiet. The coaching carousel began and things like that since. Day. Except that, there's going to be a rumor. Going to be a rumor. That the NFL that the owners are considering locking out the players because they want to renegotiate the contracts. And this will come as a surprise to dumb asses in the AT ESPN released. They're going to feign surprise. Okay. And we're going to start hearing things like while the coaches are not gonNa make anymore are putting hiring decisions are the owners are going to. Put a hiring decisions on pause for just We're going to review a few things and Blah Blah Blah. While then we're going to get to Russia's started free agency. And we'RE GONNA. Find out and it's probably going to be one of the one of the What's The guy's name? Remember his name. One of the reporters Schefter Adam schefter because he always breaks up he's. Probably. GonNa be schefter becomes. We have confirmed reports, the owners who are going to lock out the players affected nine am tomorrow or whatever. Okay. Now what's going to end up happening is this. The overall I would say, the overall revenue is going to decline somewhere in the area of twenty percent across the before the Lee across the. Across the season. Okay. Now again does just a prediction it might be higher. I hope it's higher until they stop dish this personally but. This is what's going to happen. You're going to get a massive ratings ratings cut. Even in the Super Bowl. Which means revenue is going to be down roughly thirty percents. Okay. What they're gonNA say is this is an unprecedented drop in revenue and the the losses are unsustainable. They're going to have to renegotiate the contracts. The players are GONNA have to take less money and this time the the ownership is going to be able to show concrete. The because of the drop in television revenue in Jersey sales and everything else. That they're going to have to renegotiate the contract. They're going to vote on removing Goodell as the commission. You're actually they're gonNA, they're gonNA end up forcing him out but the way it's GonNa play out this players are to get locked out. There's going to be a review of the deal of the of the current Labor Labor Agreement. The new agreement is GONNA. Have a significantly lower. Revenue Pool total that that the players are going to get. And they're going to have conduct they're going to have enhanced conduct policy which include the jewel stand for the national anthem. You will not hiding locker room for it. And you're going to we're going to not endorse anyone as far as any sort of political failure, your ideology on the field, and if you do not only will your contract be terminated but you'll be you'll be on the breadline by your suspended for a year. Now maybe the suspended for year won't come to pass but. Engage your own our brain for just a second and then look at the strike years that came up and you tell me how how how. Or how far I'll fight on that. Will. Allow me to. Dive into this plan I mean. Here we go. I am an owner of a NFL team. Meaning I have had to. Put Out. Let's use an arbitrary figure five hundred million dollars cash right upfront. Chooses five hundred. Half a billion. Cool. I'm. Glad. Yeah. Five hundred million dollars up front in order to gain my team have somewhere to play. The voted on passed and approved by the NFL. As either an expansion team whatever then. To, Cherry pick the other teams around here so I can build my team. In hopes that a I get a return on investment. That said if I'm going to dump five, hundred, million dollars out. A team equipment place play contracts that are stretched for X. number of years. This mice guaranteed this much at a signing bonus this much. Not. including the money paid to the team from the NFL for reaching a wildcard round, a divisional round championship round, and ultimately the Super Bowl. There are incentives paid to the teams by the NFL for attaining postseason plum. Yeah So that said with everything that goes on here. Currently we're martyring. Convicted felons we are. Using the NFL. As a soapbox. As an owner. would. Say? Okay. I can understand. The Point I understand where you're coming from I understand yes. Shit doesn't like this doesn't need to happen. It does there's nothing I can physically do about it personally except point out to you that you're not them. You are a multimillionaire more working your way to that point because of your talent, your skill and your ability play the game price. You as a athlete. well-fed well trained. Best shape, your ever loving life you have a house bigger than anything you've ever grew up in, you've got cars for days all these other things but. You need to remember that you are entertainer You're not a politician. So, that said. When to go into your point? After the Super Bowl. Until they actually have one right. That two weeks later, when everything's died down in the in the winter sprayed is over and losers or duck griping and the coaches players have made their way to their respective all. Wherever. That may be they're probably their private castles. Yes don't don't live in a castle guarded by you know dogs bigger than. Most people's. Cars. Were we will probably see as you said. Well you know revenue was down. Because of viewership is down across the board anywhere between currently twenty twenty, two percent to encroaching upon thirty percent. For Games you know TV, rights merchandise sales are going to be down. People are actively boycotting across those media and they're actually making their voice known by not watching. All of a sudden if we were to take thirty two current teams. And we look at. All the owners in this how much money they have? Now if we were to take thirty percent of total investment apart. As a conglomerate figure. We're talking a loss of probably and I would strong. Guess. Somewhere in the neighborhood of anywhere between two and two point, five, billion dollars while even go you want all you can go one better I think since the economy has basically picked up I mean you gotta remember the day to ten billion was during the Obama Konami which was one of the worst economies history. Okay. So that said you gotta figure that now it's probably going to be between ten and twelve. So if you have a twenty percent revenue law, if you have a almost thirty percent, you're talking about three billion dollars. That's a three billion dollar loss. So even if even if you spread that across thirty two teams, you're talking about what? Three hundred, million dollar loss per franchised. and. So and a lot of the smaller market. Good. So again, as an owner with Joan, arbitrary figure of five, hundred, million dollars starting I just lost seventy five percent of your or yeah of my revenue that I put into have an NFL team. Well, exactly. Well Number One and number two what anybody thinks that now? Okay. We all understand the cats at the revenue sharing For Those of us that are initiated, understand understand the the the reason for revenue. Okay. That's that's a given. Okay. Even still a thirty percent cut to that revenue devastates small-market teams devastate. Okay that's. Cleveland Cleveland Cambe that's Detroit. Well, I think Detroit is a bit bigger, but I catch meaning. into. Jacksonville. Flow? Buffalo Alright. That unders. Anyway. They're too big but no I hear you here's here's here's the thing the smaller market teams are going to move may if this continues maybe on the verge of bankruptcy and and if you really don't think that the NFL owners will lock out the players to avoid that. I just think everybody's so naive that they shouldn't even be a football fan you can. Football I in my opinion, these played the players and Adele are cutting the owners throats and I don't think the owners appreciate it number one and number two I. Think the owners are more in touch with their demographic their fan base style people want to believe i. don't say that they like their fan base because obviously as the executive class billionaires general ended the tend to hate working people or at least have a disdain for them. Okay. But the point being is that it's unsustainable model for them to go forward to continue this crap. Of K, it's it's absolutely ludicrous. So I think about beat that horse to death did you have anything to add on just on that? Final thought regarding that as an owner is a businessman I yeah exactly. Exactly. His businesses to? Yes he owns the team but as a business owner, you're always looking to. CRUISER BOTTLE BLONDE Increase but also you know they've got, they've got a commitment. You know what I mean I mean the bottom line is there are associated with raising revenue to pay Patrick mahomes half a billion dollars over the next. Seven years. Of. The point the point is this is that there are costs associated developing that revenue and win the players behavior or when when the when the the players union in the League encourages behavior that is deleterious to to that mission. Then what are the owners supposed to do? Gordon exactly. They locked the doors take resigning before we open this and then players you're GONNA WE'RE GONNA have to do a big restructure here. Sorry. You know this is this is not you? Not You know you're not this side of the world you guys are on the upper echelon. Of money you have succeeded in. On yourself up by your bootstrap for lack of terminology, you have made it playing a game that you love passion for three enforce your point duty not only are they a privileged class? Okay. Let I verified this I verify this last night. I made a statement that that. The NFL, the people on the NFL minimum as in rookies that that you know what we're undrafted free agents, right that are somehow made the squad, which is more powerful MAZAFA. A No experience. Rookie. Signed as a free agent this year in the League makes a minimum of six hundred, thousand dollars. Six hundred, ten, thousand dollars I then went to the Department of Labor's website guess what the average household income for Americans is as twenty twenty. Sixty, one, thousand, three, hundred. Yes. They working person would take ten eleven years to make. They're making six months show and this is not this is not an insult. I'm only going to use the label for for effect. Hacks in the NFL make ten times. The average working family does and they dare fucking lecture us about what our values should be faulk them. Big F what. Exactly. With a with capitalize all letters with with several exclamation points at the end. So that said I. Underlined and and I tell us is never. That's that said, I I wanNA give credit where it's due also understand that you know. What did I just go off on the NFL to you know to to to the end up with surprise we'll tell you why because You know even in the worst of situations, even even in the darkest night, there are rays of sunshine out gather are rays of light and I want to heap praise on two particular players, and these are the only two players. That I'm aware of have done this if any of you out there. Needed to midnight Patriot nation are aware of more please let us know. So we can give them their just desserts in their props. I want to give particular a credit to a hundred in the way of of the of the Pittsburgh steelers. Mr Villanueva is a former army ranger That said he made a big splash stirred shit storm by doing the right thing. I'm not going to get into the to the criminal that that the that the steelers. We're trying to honor Norma GonNa try to justify it didn't happen there but. Mr Vienna wave. Did something very classy He caped over the criminals name and he chose to honor sergeant first class all when cash. Now I believe I'm saying that correctly cut me some slack by brute if I if I. A brutalized his name that is not the intention. To say how I believe it's spelled. But sergeant first, class all, when. Cash. who was killed in Afghanistan? And I I, WANNA. I WANNA take. The chance to really You know he preys on on Mr Villain away for for going against the grain and for honoring in a true fallen hero on instead of instead of the criminal. So. Well on on that. The next one and probably the biggest honors of the latest give to the Jaguars tight tyler effort. I think I'm saying his name correctly also I don't think it's effort at the. But again, please forgive me if I've Jaguars fans if wrecked his name to. That being said that were I for also You know went against the grain he chose to honor the life of David Dorn David Dorn for those of you that that don't know was retired police officer. I believe it was Saint Louis. He. police chief Sir about that. He was retired police chief and he. was acting on behalf of a friend to go and check is Friends Pawn Shop. And he was gunned down he was killed Doing doing that by a felon in possession of firearm each shot this this legitimate euro From behind in the back of the head, which was incredibly cowardly act. ADORNS widow. was featured at the Republican National Convention. So those be the she told the heart wrenching story and As much as I am I gotTa tell you broaden orphee side, but he loved me misty. I was just her story about David's life was very touching and the impact on her family were simply crush. So I wanNA other drove I drove home the point. Your choice exact life exactly as what makes you? Exactly you know people people come from from bad situations and rise to great heights in as far as I know. This is the only country in the world that that can happen. Where you can make what you want of your own life. Okay. The biggest prison that we have in this country, the prison in our own minds. So A. Big Praise to do Mr Bean away and Mr for will done. I still have the continue my. My boycott because of my standards but you gentlemen have shown that there is a a ray of light in darkness. So Phoenix where you have anything to add or have we beat this to death. By by Pres for. There are people in the NFL that are serving of. Respect for me for one. Not because of their wallet or their house or their cars. But they chose stand for the national anthem. As. SOMEONE WHO Leaves in their country. Leaves in the American dream all though little hard to attain sometimes. The anthem regardless of anybody's political stance. The gentleman across the nation. And the NFL NBA MLB. I stand with you guys choose to stand in honour your country. That is. The way it is your will said. Anybody else wants that is your choice. I. Respect your choice I don't like it but I do respect it. But I stand with the gentleman who chooses stanton honor the country, the greatest country on this earth. Gives them every opportunity to excel in anything that they choose to? Like professional football or professional athletics exactly. I think it. I think it's worth mentioning here. I know we said we beat the source of, but I wanNA bring up another topic to. Weird Midnight Patriots all of us. May disagree with with what someone says, but we would fight to our desk to protect their their right to say those words. That being said I think one of the other things that the public is piss pot tired of is the privileged wealthy assholes. Being able to have different sets of rules at their workplace than we do. In the Corporate World in William and most smaller companies you do not have. You do not have freedom of speech. Okay. You will be shown the door if you bring up politics religion, etc etc. Okay. With social justice causes or otherwise. They can show you the door. Okay and I don't think I don't think it's Ok these. Use Their their platform on the field or in any way while a uniform to promote their agenda. Okay. Now, I think you and I would agree with this if the NFL Players Association wants to get together and host either a live event or televised event. when they are not playing and they're out of uniform. And they want to tackle these issues donate money to causes give away money whatever I think that would be a perfectly acceptable display. That's fine. Okay. But I think the reason they don't is they know that the cause is a loser. Okay. They're not willing to risk their own money you know to they're not willing to put their money with their mouths are in order to have their protests but but you know somehow everybody else should just shut up and and honor was they're trying to do and I think that that is excellent. You know policy at its finest end. America's PISS POT tired of turning channel I. think that's a big factor as well. As your thoughts unfortunately mean here to. Drive your point. I could see. Getting together having one big party fundraiser l. have running toe board. Hey, you know we're raising all this money great or even several. Yeah Go. But the reason but the reason they're doing it on television is because they can reach a mass audience all at once. But. They haven't had. They had the NFL network. If. The shows a winner, they could sell it to their to their allies in the media. WHO's to say ESPN would cover it. You know for God's sake ESPN has the SP one of the worst ward Joe's ever. Okay and if they want to go up to that into a social justice show fine. Go right ahead or create when like it again. Fine. Or if you know even Amazon or Netflix wants to pick up something about you know the S J W 'cause in the NFL an interview players follow players around their charitable work while they advance these causes grace go ahead I mean I think what they'll find his a there's no interest in be nobody cares they approach it that way that we far less backlash in their their incomes would be far safer than if they continue down this path. the ratings would actually come back to a more normal. That's where I'm talking about I. Mean there are only cutting their own throats by doing it the way they're doing it that that's all I have to say. So that's a wrap for this midnight. Mama we we went really long hopefully provided you get some insights, maybe some food for thought. Ob Spartan in Im with Phoenix, and we're just reminding you one last time in forever.

Betting Platforms and Casinos Double Down on Online Gamblings Future
"If you're a sports fan who likes to place better to on your favorite team chances are you've heard about rival sports betting websites, draft kings, Fan Duel sportsbook each started out as fantasy sports sites. You could build your Dream Team of players and compete against other fans fantasy teams. Then, two years ago the Supreme Court struck down a law that banned sports betting in most states, both companies added sports betting to their offerings. Now, you can make bets from the comfort of your home as long as you live in one of the twenty two states where it's legal. There's big money sports betting draft took in more than three, hundred, million dollars last year, they went public in April Fan duel earned more than four hundred, million dollars in revenues last year. But since the early weeks of the pandemic, both companies have run up against a big problem finding sports debate on. Professional Sports Leagues Have Been Canceling Seasons, and even those leagues that are still playing or canceling games due to cove it outbreaks as we've seen in baseball that's caused significant revenue hits both companies to keep money coming in. They've been getting creative both draftkings fan duel or now offering odds on almost anything they can find bet on who will win this Ukrainian table tennis match how `bout a another Taiwanese. Baseball game. If you're really daring, you can even wager on the weather forecast accuracy. The companies offered free and paid prize pools. Candidate would bring up the corona virus I during the Democratic primary debates. What about how many tweets would trump post during the debates who would win top chef? Still it wasn't enough to offset their losses but now there's another big moneymaker in the digital gambling space online casino games currently just six states allow online casino gambling, but that didn't Stop Board housebound casino. Lovers. From. Showing up in force as they looked for ways to entertain themselves at home. In fact, the surgeon people playing online blackjack poker and slots called gaming helped online casinos rake in a record breaking four hundred and two million dollars during the second quarter that according to business insider. Now, that's triple last year's total and helped offset the company's losses from canceled Sporting. Events. The surge in online casino gaming has given Fan Duel and draft kings and other outlet in order to get in on this action gaming regulations in some states require them to partner with casinos. Fan Duel entered the arena in January offering casino games. Through the fan you'll sportsbook APP in Pennsylvania in June launched its standalone Fan Duel Casino APP draftkings had blackjack game in its sports, APP last year. But in July, it went all in with draft Kings Casino, which is available in New Jersey Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Some questions to will gamblers prefer the convenience of betting from home even after sporting events, resume and casinos are fully open for online gambling companies. A lot riding on that answer.
Will Australia have access to a vaccine if/when it is discovered?
"This is corona cost a podcast all about the coronavirus I'm health report a Teigen Taylor on physician and Journalists Alter Norman Swan it's Tuesday the eighteenth of August. So No, we're hearing that the government seen advanced negotiations with a couple of different companies about a vaccine securing a supply of vaccine for. STRATEGIA. Even though don't actually know which accents GonNa work yet what's involved in this process of making sure that we can get it once we know what works well, there are two ways of getting one is to enter into events purchase deal. Which is what America has done with several manufacturers. So for example, with the Oxford Vaccine I think they've pre-booked three hundred million dollars is the European Communities pre-booked four, hundred, million doses. Then there's does is they've got to give to Garvey for low income countries. It doesn't leave much in Britain's got to get. Some doesn't much out of their first billion doses. So you know and that's the front of the queue. There is an Indian manufacturer sending up to manufacture some of these vaccines particularly the Oxford one. Last week on seven thirty, the telling Nolan from the University of Melbourne was saying that he's reasonably optimistic going to be more than one vaccine available in a reasonably short space of time in other words this year sometime towards the end of this year. And therefore, there probably will be plenty of doors to go around. But that doesn't mean to say that we're home and hosed with that. Now, it's believed that the negotiations the government's doing are with the Oxford Group, but we don't have manufacturing capacity for that kind of vaccine in Australia. Sort of vaccines that CSL US but we have got expertise in vaccine production and the easiest way to do this is to license the technology and manufacturing in Australia so that we can guarantee that. So so in other words taking supply away from anywhere else we would be manufacturing the vaccine for our own use. It does mean, of course that if it doesn't work, we've got to find. Vaccine from elsewhere but it's quite likely that what are the vaccines which will be fun to? We'll be the vaccine, but it's not guaranteed right. So like scientists got a lot of different irons in the fire here and some companies have decided to back a particular one and stop making that. So that one that you mentioned the Oxford one has a billion orders already in what if it doesn't work Tip It all down the drain just closed because of the junk heap that's taking. So the so the least risk for Ustralia is to license the technology and pay a license fee vaccine. Without pre purchasing vaccine so that we can produce it if it works. And in the hope that we can tool up pretty quickly. Probably even test that in advance and you might want WanNa, take a risk and produce vaccine. Ahead of time we they're doing in the United Kingdom or the other way that the the government can do to pre purchase vaccines and what Americans do with some scenes saying, well, we will guarantee you x billion dollars ranks one, hundred, million dollars if your vaccine is approved for registration so there's a caveat on it as well, but it does give those companies the ability to borrow money or. Gain grants or other things because they've got guaranteed income should it be successful? Can we take a step for a second and talk about what it actually takes to get a vaccine from the lead benchtop into the little glass vial that you see at the pharmacy, which is what they didn't stick in your arm. The problem is that was the vaccines that are most likely to be successful. Initially, it's novel technology and the novel technology is on both sides of the equation there's this edge of. And there's the actual bit of the virus itself. So with the Oxford vaccine, the event that's going to amplify the immune response is actually an admiral virus from a chimpanzee. The Russian and Chinese vaccines are also adenovirus vaccines. Now, that requires new technology development, develop it safely, and then you go to the technology to produce the the bit of the Corona virus that you're gonNA use to stimulate the specific immune response with the Madeira no one in America, the vaccine, which is a little packet of. Genetic messaging which goes into the cell to produce. A bit of the virus to stimulate the immune response. There's no Ativan. But. That requires special manufacturing technology as well. So Australia acquiring, the latest technology would be acquiring, know how that's going to be very handy for into the future and makes us independent of other supplies overseas Rava van necessarily pre purchasing large numbers of the doses from overseas in the hope that they were going to be approved. Now, America's done a couple of things that they're they've pre purchased unconditionally some vaccine and they've pre purchased some vaccines. On the basis of them having been approved and they're just hedging their bets and Some money might well be wasted in this and some vaccines which are being pre manufactured such as Oxford vaccine may have to be junked if it doesn't work one hopes not.

"Lottery twice on the same day million Bucks maybe was this hammer was is like you play the Powerball and then played like one of the other state lotteries or something then use the same numbers no this guy is a moron this guy thought he'd be brilliant and play the same number that he's been playing for thirty years in the powerful right so we stopped at his favorite gas station in the morning played those same numbers he felt a little excited so on his way home he decided to stop at another gas station employee those exact same numbers in the exact same lottery he didn't didn't actually win a million dollars twice no he has to split the million dollar jackpot with himself because he played the same numbers wait a minute I wanted that as did that negative tax implications if you just would have played it once as a player as opposed to now that's interesting this is the dumbest thing maybe just for god why did he think he was going to like get an extra million Bucks because that's not how it works like a fifteen people when the three hundred million dollar Powerball they divvied up three hundred million Bucks up all fifteen people don't win three hundred million dollars that's not how it works well it would make sense if you play the numbers like on like a version for one power ball and then like something in the Hoosier Lotto right right mega millions or so yes exactly as mega millions and Powerball and playing the same set of numbers in two different games then yeah he would have been it would have been a big winner but that maybe just slipped his mind playing the same numbers twice in the same game just wasting money but do you are you a Lotto guy like ever find yourself playing water in those days where it's been like stupid crazy numbers like record breaking like a billion dollars I've I've just been a it's been a Buck or two maybe five Bucks at the liquor store but nothing ever on a regular basis and residual usually what I do is I've had a set of specific numbers that I use that were meaningful to me like birthdays and stuff like that and then I do a random one where it's like a quick pick right but I don't think I've ever been close to it I I may have been able to cash in for a dollar or something like that maybe hit one or two numbers at the most never ever ever came close to the winning anything big though I have four numbers once but I didn't hits like the important numbers I didn't hit the power ball or like the other numbers so that's the most I've ever matched but man like I can't even imagine the rush it would be of seeing those numbers fall watching it be yours and this guy won the jackpot on March twenty fifth and he just now came forward like I beat the lottery office the next day the next day yeah I wonder what the laws are like in terms of having to identify yourself because their states that are different like if I won twenty million dollars in the Hoosier Lotto and I'll have to tell people that have me that one I'm setting up like some sort of trust or some sort of LLC I'm I don't I don't want that out there I don't want my I don't want that kind of information out there we have a casino all the time because because it's it be good for the casino to know who it is is winning this big money and you take their picture and you look at widening exactly music from are you not gonna use me for marketing if I

anything about that at all in your contacts you have in your sources nothing in Indiana yet but what I've heard about Vegas is that kind of like restaurants fifty percent capacity greeting you as you

restaurants that are only allowed to have twenty five percent capacity fifty percent capacity they only have to pay fifty percent of the rent if that's the case that's a good question what doesn't

"Very quickly and it was built up disproportionately so it's easier for us to hire a lot of outreach workers and deploy those forces quickly it's harder for us to build the shelters and the houses on the backend to actually move folks into as an example right now in our sheltered population we have thirty thousand people who have said to us yes we want resources yes we want shelter we don't have anywhere to put them in we have nothing to offer them so okay let's stop there because here's the the best act the best analogy I can use was Afghanistan right or maybe even Iraq where we drive we dropped tons of troops and tons of money into both of those countries and a war effort without really having a solid building plan on the backside and at what ended up happening is we're still on war in Afghanistan and Iraq ended up being you know an unmitigated disaster in a lot of ways it when it comes to the homelessness here in Los Angeles what has happened is we've put a lot of attention and focus on building housing but it's gonna take time to build it and so what they did was they dump a ton of money and a ton of resources into you all of these outreach workers but once these outreach workers Gail interact with these folks they at the end of the day don't really have much to give them in terms of housing because we are only building so much bridge housing I mean we're talking about grand openings for units that have maybe a hundred different beds for people that are homeless yet given the hood where you have five hundred people that Krissy going losses on website and they say they have a three hundred million dollar annual budget okay three hundred million dollars in federal state county and city and I don't care about whether how hard and that that is a legitimate or even about how long it takes to build housing and nobody wanted in the backyard what you're telling me with a three hundred million dollar annual budget and you helped under a hundred people who have drug problems and mental health in the last year get help under a hundred yeah well you better you could not do better that's that's I mean that's what captain saying right now is is that with all of this money with all of these resources we should really be doing better faster that we should we should be finding away even if there aren't beds for people we should be funny way and also we should be K. army hit his main point really today was we should be keeping much better track of what's going on here and we should have a much better system for so here's a little bit he had to say about that first is to create something I'm calling home stacked a statistically driven performance model this is a system that is similar in many ways to compstat which is being used by police departments for public safety mapping if you've ever seen the why are you know a compstat is for those of you that have never watched the wire I'm sorry go watch it it is all right it's a great day your homework before listening to the show doing it by the way out friend sounds like big when you get called and into the principal's office like that guy he's that guy yeah is that he is very he he does have that kind of voice and honestly I mean for what he does as destroyed and you it's kind of person yeah exactly that's what you want you want the controller to be all lot of in your face well it just based on the topic I'm sure that you'll be Alan Johnny can a little bit later as well right you bring sure that will probably happen I'll schedule you right now just also an email say our end obviously there's a ton more here we only scratched the surface you know its yeah go read the report all right Chris wanted to wire Chris thank you of course the the guy I I want to say so about then we come back though about what the specifics that run gal prince talking about when it comes to home stat because I think there's an important issue that no one wants to talk about when it comes to the homelessness issue okay during channel will continue Jane will sit in for Janet today Monica rex what's happened that brush.

"Could have a very strong showing or there's I don't know the outside possibility of a body search and the reason I say outside possibilities because I don't see the the same energy there that really wouldn't win during the primary season of twenty sixteen he started to search now as they moved out west no the error it's not there no I I don't see it in so it's just an outside possibility I don't expect him to win Iowa by the primary in the caucuses I just think it's going to be but it's it's he'll have that showing he's going to have the money and he'll be around the like the last up until I think the the convention like he did last time but it's not going to be anything except the the stay with it it's not the same energy the stuff you saw the videos and and and the speech of the whole field of dreams thing frankly is has been the most newsworthy item on that Bernie and this season now that I think about I mean they they did clap at the end when he was done but when the camera was panting the crowd they seem bored some say I kept rising baseball here exact you know I mean he's a bit of a rock star but he's a bit of a like a retired rockstar it's it's he's almost like an ex president showing up right now and I think that's kind of the energy you see why does he remind me of David Crosby's father right yeah even though he's not old enough to be audible right but we always reminds me I don't know why there's a there's a little bit of there's a limit of David Crosby and Bernie Sanders anybody ever see that I I the only one I was a good Bernie Sanders and I see just a little bit of David cross if you know if he has a mustache probably yeah maybe it's just me yeah was very a wood stock the original as I just I don't know it is a good question who's probably there in spirit if he wasn't there while in person I hate I I got Bernie Sanders and I put it in Google Bernie Sanders AT and I put W. when Woodstock came up yeah trying to find something I don't know I can't find it doesn't I can't find one here just blogs talking about it some don't know Bernie Sanders was there but Jane Sanders was so is all right if I don't like like anybody really cares but there were yeah okay so we're done with baseball and Bernie remember to Bernie was talking about field of dreams but the field of dreams is about what becoming a Major League Baseball player words then you can sign a three hundred million dollar contract and then drugs report will put you on the front headline for half a day saying that you well for the last couple of weeks as was done two days ago but field of dreams about becoming a Major League Baseball player right and making hundreds of millions of dollars for hitting a ball with a stick can any socialist believe that that is good and can any true socialist sit on the field of dreams and if you lose that stage to catapult his socialist agenda I just came up with that by the way of coff that was yeah I I think of the answer's no right but I dollar contracted as he was saying all that yeah right yeah the you know three hundred million dollars but the thing is is that that player would be paying for all of the other players and staffers that work at and of course the guys who sell the beer and everything else their health care and well I why wasn't Bernie railing on the right perfect opportunity right if she does that run major corporations are making too much but people that hit a ball with the stick make just as much yeah why isn't burning going wise and Bernie going after it what is this is is this is a question when when is the Democrat party going to go after professional athletes will that ever happen or will it just be Sri ito's look C. E. oldest if you believe that C. E. O.'s are unfairly paid compared to the worker I would dare say that their job and the responsibility that they have is greater than anybody who play sports I'm not saying you don't to be a professional we are not we are not of that ilk that says older a bunch of spoiled brats in professional sports they're not these that people in professional sports if you've ever been around them the vast majority of them these people are professionals when you when you see what's going on right now the NFL training camps when when you realize your defensive back if you just if you can get your foot in one place and push off correctly that's the difference between making millions of dollars a year and making nothing right the intensity at that that you have the the intensity and knowledge that you have to have to be a professional athlete at the top level I don't care whether it's baseball football whatever is extremely high but still it's a sport yes and so yeah you've got to be discipline you have to be professional but your responsibility is not even close to what a CEO of a major corporation is why should you be making tens of millions or now hundreds of millions of dollars and the fact you have a couple of good weeks and you make it to the top headline the drudge report yeah right well I mean I'm until until social start saying that professional athletes need to be paid the same as the beer vendor you have no credibility with me right you wouldn't anyway but was burning ever go to the you know because they all go out to a game every once in awhile okay I don't know ever seen that you know he drives a sports car I don't know isn't which isn't really professional sports to a socialist the access the excesses of a capitalist military industrial capitalist society yeah.

"I was ready for it he was swinging for the fences before he hit that grand slam anyways of course he's ready forties Bryce Harper that's all he wanted to do is it cold thank you we take a minute and just look back at how perfect this worked out the whole season every cub fan wanted Bryce Harper to be on the north side the cubs cried poor couldn't afford were fine we don't need them he signs with the Phillies he struggles it's all about the last fifteen games now he's not a tear and in one of the most important games of the cubs season when they're struggling on the road and they really need a rebound when he sticks the dagger in their heart yeah now look I I'm not going to be disingenuous here I would not have signed Bryce Harper whether I had all the money in the world available or not I would never have given him a thirteen year deal never and he has not had a good year as a Philly he's not but he still great talent and in that situation there that wasn't a lot they're calling Bryce Harper I think outside of a post season loss especially last year's this is the worst loss for the cubs in the regular season just because this is now spiraled out of control the road loss situation is unfathomable this is the worst loss outside of post season losses this is the worst regular season loss for the cops the worst I don't care what you do in Pittsburgh at this point the pirates are trash they're they're a lousy baseball team I don't care so you needed last night and with the way Darvish pitched it's at a loss the one in Milwaukee where Elmore hit the home run to go up I think three to two end of July and then Kimbrough gave up the game tying home run and then they cast in here walk off two run Jack that one might have been even more stunning because I think everyone saw when Bryce Harper was coming up where this might end their bases were already loaded it's Harper it's Derek Holland but when it was Kimber all three too late we spent forty three million to give that guy that's different so that one might have even been more of a gut punch and resist after the game he thought this was the worst the worst most frustrating loss it ranks at the top is that I mean wow wow wow wow what John agrees with you on line one contact John I'll maybe make us feel better Hey John what's up kid Hey guys thank you for taking the call yeah you know last night I'm sitting here on my in my chair and watching the game didn't you just hit the first baseman in the hand with the page to load the bases here comes Harper I'm thinking three hundred and thirty million okay Bryce to your work there if you do what you're supposed you're here and I wonder how work gets June two I'm thinking anything but down in in here do anything you wanted to reach for the kitchen strike out get your right in Harper's real house and he did not miss it and I'm thinking all my god you're going to go into Pittsburgh losing four of your last five games during a role later I team that just want to point you out every game your five and five now against that a real crappy pirates jeans yeah do you sleep this theory yeah John let's not worry about sweeps one two three don't even think like that just worried about winning a baseball game tonight that's it you got a win tonight I mean John you can't lose four in a row just worry about winning a game tonight that's all yeah control today you can't forecast Saturday appreciate the call you can't worry about Saturday you can't worry about Sunday you can't worry about dot one of the cardinal to score and find a way to win a damn baseball game because last night is a joke absolutely first of all and I get hobby was sick but this goes back to in my what field they dismiss guided decision to keep Addison Russell in your organization because when you kept Addison Russell at night you did not get any other option for a backup shortstop hobby get sick he can't play Addison's that is issues he's back in the minor leagues and you go oh god bodhi can you play short sure I'll play half you're gonna be a second that might be the single worst defense of up the middle alignment any team that thinks it's a contender anywhere in baseball couldn't agree more could not agree more and I thought the same thing I tweeted at last night the twenty nineteen cubs had about a thirty eight winning percentage on the road okay so that's about a sixty one and a hundred and one record overseas and the twenty twelve Cup sixty one one a one on the road which was the worst in fifty years I might add we are now in this moment we're watching the worst club team in decades when they planned route since say it's usually in saying let's go back to the phones three one two three three two three seven seven six Steve all and then I've got a couple things I want to get off my chest Steve all what's up kid HM for real quick I understand you're mad about the pitching but this is what baseball has come to and it's good continue to be that way Esther's behaving eighty pictures whatever the days of the borough landers are one are gone the next three hundred million dollar player will be Francisco indoor it will be your guy can be two six zero four four two strikeouts again and it just goes to show that he's not a guy that's going to be a a big ten player and the the other thing is the only way to Greenwood share that you're exactly in the moment in the moment what happened back in twenty sixteen made me happy just like everybody else but you got a look at what's going to happen in the future this team doesn't have it it doesn't have it they need a big time check up and I hope it first person that gets traded this off season is Chris right his unique he's not responding here and he's not going to be a cop after two years stay thanks for the thoughts they appreciate it I think people don't realize how good a player Chriss he's really good but if he's not going to be here because of free agency that's a different discussion but the people that don't understand how talented this guy is is a really good baseball player just look at the numbers they are so I can't go there I'm just saying if you can't sign in that's a different story but there's a few problems here okay I disagreed with polling Darvish the doctors did not say to me I had to come out I was completely spent dude I was out it was a pretty much yeah okay whatever we're going to agree to disagree Joan I and that's fine and I don't put all this on Joe but.

"Love with loose that really is interesting to me I don't know if I have the time to figure that out talked a lot about that the difference after all the traveling how can you ensure that you do you use them tell you when you come to this wall for his you know the energy from our fans is substantial did you feel it immediately so I think it begins with that to come back home it's very comfortable everything that we have going on here he gets even on that all that stuff matters but he and not an excuse about what we're doing on the road that needs to get better it's gonna get better but when you come back here I think the I the fans have a lot to do with the fact that to Friday Friday afternoon games are packed everywhere else a blister given away something under sticks or a hat or something you at this time we get a full crowd and other ball parks of one twenty in the afternoon on Friday so a lot of it has to with the fans you're wearing the shirt all that really good you know he's such a professional on this every talks with other guys other teams rotations all kinda like ours you put those five names out there man it's it's a solid five so the getting back in well and then continue to the took to put the bullpen guys out to dry time is very interesting but we haven't I'm talking with the bush right now so I still man after the game you could hear that press conference on NBC sports Chicago I'm Chris black along with them a dollar here sitting in for Jonathan hood tonight on under the hood on ESPN one thousand and the ESPN app pose a can Tana six innings seven hits two earned runs five strikeouts he has an ERA now a four point four zero you heard Joe Maddon talk right there when you get home especially if Friday at home at Wrigley Field it's a different by here's the concerning thing with that you might not get a home game if you keep playing ball the way you have the last month and a half to two months right because if your one of the wild card teams and you don't have that home field you can't count on that that Wrigley Field Chicago crowd to be behind you in a playoff game and then we have to look at the road in homes plates in a playoff one game or go home situation I wouldn't trust this team as the road team in a wild card situation Chris they might not get a playoff game what this is the way that way if you just weekend in your the road team and you have to travel for the wild card game to do it I would trust a team on the road but at home I'd feel really calm not when there's a plane they can't win a regular season series how this was going to post season series on the road I mean they have three games left to right now they have a lot of road games coming up they have a ten game road trip coming up after the brewers are here right now and then the is coming to town and then they go on a ten game road trip and remember remember remember last year when they went into Cincinnati and got sweat you're like well the wasn't for that series well guess who they go see first the Reds for four games August eighth through the eleventh four games against the red on the road and then you go to Philly and Pittsburg but before they have to go to the red some of those who had your numbers specially on the road yeah and they struggled against them this season so crisp like an animal dollar here on ESPN one thousand in the ESPN app today Chris Brian in five at bats score one run here two hits he's not bang to ninety on this season okay I'm I have this question for you let me ask you this I've heard a lot of people and I know it's a generic thing to throw out there a lot of people but you see it on social media you see people call up cub fans around the city want to tell you that Kris Bryant is an MVP level player right yeah okay so Kris Bryant being an MVP level player and they point to his numbers when he was an MVP in two thousand sixteen correct like that that's the go to when someone says but Kris Bryant in N. B. P. go to two thousand sixteen right course of course of course and the numbers that he had in two thousand sixteen thirty nine home runs one hundred two RBI his slash numbers were two ninety two three eighty five five fifty four and he had a seven point seven war so if you look at Kris Bryant today and you look at this season you you look at what's going on with this cubs team to me part of the reason why this team is up and down in that struggle is because Kris Bryant although good is not playing at an MVP level like what are you talking about his numbers this season are as good as they were when he won an MVP right that's what people are gonna say that's what people will come back at me with I use the eye test nice a bright doesn't quite look like an MVP and then they'll say but look at his numbers in two thousand sixteen his numbers now are just as good as they were winning at one end and the P. right so right now he is twenty one home runs fifty one RBI slash numbers of two eighty eight three ninety two five thirty five he has a three point five war at the moment for the Chicago Cubs but to me that's not an MVP in today's day and age of the amazingly baseball right like if the cubs are in first place battling for first place a half game out of first place he's our best player and he's putting up stats they're the best on the team shouldn't shouldn't he be an M. B. peacock in the conversation well if you look at just the National League I don't even do the entirely Chris I looked at the National League just now and he is fourteenth among in the National League in war is fourteenth in batting average seventh in on base percentage twenty fifth in home runs tied for fifth when he won the MVP in two thousand sixteen okay everybody numbers now we're just as good as early everybody has a bunch of home season yeah here's the key has thirty six home runs yeah Cody Ballenger has thirty five to one thirty so are those for you what do you want me to keep going now I'd like you to stop in those first two names here's the reason why this cubs team is in the situation that they're in Kris Bryant as the best player on the team has not taking that next step to another level he has not jumped to another level in shouldn't his numbers although good I understand that he's going to I'm not saying Chris Brown isn't good the numbers are growing and they match what they were in two thousand sixteen when he won an MVP but guess what baseball's changed since two thousand sixteen Christian yells right now has thirty six home runs eighty one RBI slash numbers a three thirty to four twenty six six ninety two a five point eight war is team just lost to your team today and they are a game behind or your team right now yeah so your team who has a guy who's a better player isn't in the MVP conversation get the guy on the what the worst team at the moment it is and explain that to me Cody Bollinger yeah exactly go him five home runs eighty three RBI slash numbers of three thirty one four thirty to six seventy seven a war of seven point one as of right now today for Cody Bollinger on the best team in the National League and say and the year with like a tent like a ten so here here's my point when people want to say that Kris Bryant leave him alone this that me other because he was in the M. B. P. and in his MVP season the numbers this season are matching what we saw in his MVP season I say to you little cub fan guess what baseball has changed Sean like that Johnson Johnson laughing in the studio that I said a little company well here's the here's the reason why I'm sick of people telling me that he's an M. B. P. because this in this to days and MOB he's not he's a great player but he needs to perform at a higher level if this team can be consistent all the way through and be a team that's gonna fight for championship they need more of Chris prime well I think that everybody does though I think that everybody I don't know man I think you got a look at the top and and you you need more from your bass players if the if Chris Brian's going to be a three hundred million dollar player he needs to provide more than what he's doing right now he's good I get it and people I give me all these advance Alex I get it but there are many players across baseball who are better the curse pride but I think the problem that you when you have with the the cubs is that all of your guys are performing consistently and you got it goes back to the consistency look at how the buyers even jet holier today on with is with cap earlier and Eddie Olczyk said the hobby is in a slump and today he has a home run in two doubles and so he he would be out of a slump or is he gonna go over twenty five after this look accounts were recalled for Christmas struggling at the plate but last weekend in the block game on Sunday he had a grand slam in a three run home run and then and then what so yeah it's it's not it's all it's boom or bust with these guys and you need some level of consistency I'm not so you need to be Mike trout I'm just saying you need to you need to be a threat every time you shop to the plate and not just have these outbursts of over four oh for for one for four one four three two doubles and a home run for for for for over for a grand slam in three and a three run home run over for for for for for for for for like you just can't work like that if you are a cub fan listening to this conversation your favorite team you're watching this team each and every day and you said yourself Kris Bryant's numbers resemble the numbers of his MVP season then why this season is he not an MVP candidate please tell me explain to me why he is doing what he did to win an MVP the rest of the league has jumped improved yet he is not jumping in improving he's still good so you can't say that I'm not saying he's not good he's good he's a very good baseball player but is he a top five player in the National League is he going to be in the because she's not a top ten player right now if you go by if you look at if you go by war if you go by all the metrics he's not top five in anything and and see that's why if you are a cub fan thinking that this is a take that is just coming from a point of view where it's saying that he's just bad it's not true because you're lying to yourself when you watch him play can you watch the way this team played remember back to last night remember today was great right sunshine Wrigley Field everything's alright a hello this stuff right it's great right now but last night it was terrible where was the last I got one hit yes where was he in the previous series right like that's where I am confused on Kris Bryant he's supposed to be an M. B. P. you have a first place team fighting for first place should he be in the MVP conversation absolutely should be if you're if you're gonna be one of the best teams in and of trying to go to a World Series you have to have MVP type players and right now they have a lot of really good players they don't have an MVP caliber player on their team right now that's Amazon crisp like here on ESPN one thousand and the ESPN app earlier today Carmelo Anthony told Stephen A. Smith on first take he was going to become a Chicago bull but then something happened what was that something why didn't mellow decide to come to the bulls we will discuss that coming up next Chris Buckingham a dollar singing for Jonathan hood on under the hood on right on ESPN one thousand and the ESPN up if you wanna get schooled in saving time and money on back to school items then swing on over.
