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.

She writes quote. This was the second time my music had been sold. Without my knowledge. She went on to say that during talks with shamrock she discovered under the terms of the sale.

With Films and Audiences Scarce, Regal Cinemas Shuts its Doors
"From wondering I'm David Brown in this business wars daily on this Friday October night some sad news this week about the film industry. One of the biggest movie theater chains in America is Shutting Down Indefinitely Regal Cinemas is rolling up the red carpet at it's five hundred plus theaters in America last Sunday Regal's parent company sent a world announced it would suspend operations beginning yesterday cinna world has also closing more than one hundred, twenty, five theaters in the UK it's the largest. Movie Theater Operator there in the second largest in the world after rival AMC entertainment holdings according to the Wall Street. 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. T shirts, hats, hoodies, mugs, phone cases, and just about everything else in between we got you covered whether you're looking to embrace your insomnia, show your patriotism or make a liberals headaches blowed. 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.

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.

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.

And because the the the Orion is so heavy that even F L S can't deliver it into low lunar orbit with enough you'll for it to come back.

I buy the cheaper capsule, which is also the lighter capsules. What you want white is good. You know, doing something now as must proceed to develop these things at a certain point the argument to use it becomes irrefutable.

So yes, it does not they say it's not severe. But here's where you get nervous. Heading back to New York for a cortisone injection. This is what's happened just mask the problem? Just kind of what happens when you start when you start signing guys over thirty. This is one of the reasons why guys in their mid thirties are not getting big contracts. Slimmer they've been jogging for three days understand that. But again, this is part of the analytics. During the regular season. But the fact that he's already got an issue is kind of I think furthers the point that you have to be smart when you're signing. What's next, right? In his neck next week. Maybe maybe the next guy. That's right. You gotta be kidding me. So Lowry they're saying hopeful of opening day right now with a capsule thing in the back of his knee. I guess is what it was right now. Todd Frazier leaks. Always he'll quick let let's just try not to make too big of a deal out of how you. That's what I'm worried about. I'm worried about the regular season. I'm not worried about these little things and things that are happening during spring training. But yeah, I get what you're saying. But again, you understand now why jerem managers are reluctant to give big money. The guys that are in their thirty degree. Here's where I wouldn't get concerned. Jed Lowrie has a sore knee. He'll be back next week. Not we're hopeful that he'll be ready for opening day. And if you said Todd Frazier has some soreness in his bleak can take a couple of days off will be back on Friday. Not that he's going back to New York for an injection. I don't give injections down in Florida. Apparently, not act in New York. I guess I guess hospitals. Don't have cortisone in Florida.

"One three eight one one couple of questions kind of having a left field. But in thinking about them, and there's really no perfect way to insert them into the program. This guy Machado is a great baseball player. He just signed a contract with Sania go three hundred million dollars for ten years. By my calculation that averages out the thirty million a year. Now if Kamala Harris or Elizabeth Warren or any of the Marxist for running a any of these these leagues. How could you pay one guy thirty million three hundred million over ten years when other guys running much less than that? That's not fair is it, Mr. producer. Well, you might say well now, well, they perform they bring in a lot more money. Well, that's exactly how capitalism works. That's how business works some businesses. Make a lot more money than others some fail. Some succeed beyond one's imagination. Is that fair? We just heard from a. Doc that any dollar over ten million dollars should be taxed at seventy to ninety percent. So should Machado's dollars beyond ten million dollars twenty million dollars a year be taxed at seventy to ninety percent. What do you think he would think about that? Now, I asked this question because liberalism is widespread in sports. Athletics. The players the sportscasters even many of the owners, not all flow, more conservative. But some of them, you know, it's very loose views morals at least one of them. But anyway, so my question is. Many of these team members and so forth. They won't go to the White House. Many of them claim to be liberal many of them who claim to be social Justice wars, though. I don't see a hell of a lot of that. What about this? When the rubber hits the road when it affects your finances. Do you agree that every dollar after their first ten million? You earn should be taxed at seventy to ninety percent Diaz agree with a wealth tax, which is what's being pushed to that? Everything you've earned a certain percentage of that should be taken by the federal government each and every year. What do you say LeBron? Do you agree with that? Of course, they would never agree to that. Why is sports untouchable? But every other part of our society is not we have these rich people who while we have rich football players baseball player, especially basketball yet guys making forty forty five million dollars a year. Now, I don't begrudge it. I could care less. I don't can't they make four billion dollars a year. I mean, if they put the league out of business, that's not my problem. But I'm saying. For all these social Justice warriors. Is it a problem? By the way, I'm very excited about so it's been a very tough six or eight months around the Levin household greatly. As I've told you. But there's something I'm very excited about I am ninety percent done. My book I've had to stop writing it for a period of time. But I will write it about three in the morning three thirty in the morning. After a brief break after my radio program. I'll write it all weekend long. If I'm here. I'm ninety percent done. This is not a heavy book in terms of philosophy. It's not a heavy book in terms of. You know? What I'm trying to say is it's kind of flow very easily just like liberty and tyranny. And I think you're gonna love it. Because it does apply to what's going on today. And it has history sprinkled in with current events sprinkled in with some philosophy sprinkled in. I I really think you're gonna love this book. I can't I'm not allowed to say anymore. I know it's ridiculous. And the reason they don't want to say anymore because there's so many backbenchers out there. I can't even give you the title yet. And the title is very exciting. It's very cool. I CoCo now. I'm just kidding. He already wrote his book. But it is a very very exciting book. I actually very much enjoyed working on it to the extent. I can enjoy anything the last six months. And after this program, I'm going to grab a bite, and then I'm going to get right back to it. And I think those of you who are interested in getting my books. I think you're going to be. You're gonna find it not only really interesting, you're gonna learn a lot, and it'll be applicable to what's going on today. That's all I'm allowed to I can't say anymore. Don't be mad.

Rockies broadcast is Saturday at noon with Jack and Jerry on KOA. Newsradio third baseman Nolan are an auto has one year left in his contract. So what are the Rockies need to do to secure him Iraqis insider, Ed Henderson, my sense is that they they probably will try to do everything they can to sign him because I think let's face it. He has become the face of the franchise, and I think folks around here the ownership of the Rockies among them would love to see him in Iraqi uniform for the next few years, but you know, there's a there's a point a reality, and in sports contracts, and Michelle certainly broke the glass yesterday with this move, and I think three hundred three hundred million dollars for Manny Machado. When you're talking about Nolan aren't auto who is ranked as baseball's number three player right now in the minds of many experts. I think it's going to be tough because over the long haul. You're gonna be paying him a lot of money over an extended period of time. It really becomes a question of whether or not, you know, the Rockies have the financial wherewithal to make it happen. I hope they can because I for one have loved watching him play here. And I would love to see him really spend the rest of his career in Iraqi uniform. Are you liking what you're seeing what the rocks rates now in spring training? So I think you know, the they're they're heading in the right direction. Obviously they're getting some guys back. There are healthy and arrested. And and that's always a plus and a good way to start the season. I think they made some key moves in terms of you know, realigning guys moving Charlie to right field. I think is a good move. And I'm going to be really curious to see where Brendan Rodgers factors into all of this over the next few weeks. Because obviously, he's a guy that a lot of folks around here have had their eye on since he was drafted. So I I like what I see so far, and if they can stay healthy, I think I'll like it even more Rockies insider, Ed Henderson with some optimism there.

Nobody had CNN was passing along debate questions to Hillary Clinton before debates give her giver it up. Her hand against this Vermont, democratic socialist. Because she needed all the advantages, you could just move right along. I almost feel bad for him. Let's just move right along. Yeah. Nobody's heard of him before that. Nobody heard a Bernie. I'm sure everybody loved him there. But nobody's up north. But nobody heard him from anywhere else. He took the kids I should say I sound like one hundred and two by storm. I mean, my daughter loved him just finish. So at the beginning. All right at the beginning, and then their enthusiasm really waned and wave as it because they analyzed it a little bit more. And they weren't they weren't so sold after awhile. You mean they actually did math because he says you'll have free college and you'll have free everything. And oh, how do you pay for it economics? I will not get into those details at this moment 'economics majors, and they did they didn't ran numbers in MIT. Right. One of your kids. Yeah. Economics major MIT, and they ran numbers and said mom loved the burn loved the field. Love it. The sound ran the numbers doesn't work. So. Know, we be can we think progressive liberal, centrist? Which is not a dirty word. I maintain not not not at Hertie word. And I think the Democrats really have to get together on this really have to figure out how to make it together. One twenty five of them. Steve Geller, then the Democrats have have a history of being fractured and and need to figure out how to the Republicans to they started out. Do you know in two thousand sixteen being very fractured? I mean, look at it. They didn't want Donald Trump is the president didn't want people did. Oh, well, any work for those primaries, pretty easy. When you think about it the way he beat seventeen people now was considered one of the greatest fields you'll ever see. Whether you got crews when he got case. Greatest doesn't. In terms of the people that went came forward. Right. You had former governors senators right successful ones. Bush was successful in Florida case very successful in Ohio Marco Rubio up and coming Senator Florida you run right down the list. Ted Cruz, they go. I mean, the fact that Donald Trump no political experience whatsoever came in there and puts barely challenged. I mean that was the amazing all the free media that he got that's for sure I don't think people took him seriously. And I don't think I think there are a lot of people that feel that he didn't take himself seriously that he didn't think that he was going to win or run or even in there. I gotta stop you there the whole thing where he said, well, he ram and he really didn't want to win no-one campaigns. Like, he did if you don't wanna win you mail it in he was doing two or three stops day when Hillary would do one take like two days, certainly was the messaging or the or or the the the outworked his opponents. Did you did? But maybe when he got into the hunt when he realized hey, I got shot at this. I might witness and the competitive nature just sort of took over, of course, gonna win. I'm gonna win. I'm gonna win. I'm gonna win at all costs win. I'm gonna win. I'm gonna win. You made your point now with Bernie. Yeah. Here's the thing about him. It was him against Hillary Clinton in two thousand sixteen right? No one else. Martin O'Malley, please. Hey, guys. Yeah. I can't even remember who was ridiculous got from Rhode Island that ran remember him we've shape there you go. Look me up with the name now. I remember. Yeah. Chafee and web. Right. He ran to. But he was in like one debate. And he was like I can't fall asleep. Yeah. Yeah. So so basically it was set up that Hillary Clinton would easily win. So she'd have a lot of money to run against whoever the democratic or the Republican nominee is really knew it was gonna be Hillary Clinton until they made sure of it until Bernie Sanders kinda waltzed in. And I was like, whoa. Who's this guy? And what the kids are all excited about it. Man. What spoiler. Spoiler alert. Right. I don't really understand that last point the point was that. I think the Democrats the Democrats supplement Democrats thought that Hillary Clinton was going to have his handed tour and Bernie Sanders came on in. And it was a spoiler. Could you're saying. Yeah. Yeah. And then him, right? And the thing is the delegate count when you look at it was very very close the super delegates though, which isn't actually voters party officials, then all wait in was six to forty eight. If I'm remembering correctly as. Whereas the super delegates. They're trying to do away with those because it got such bad press because you want the people to decide these things not the party. So look birdies going to have a big big problem here because it's not like it's just Bernie alone as the only democratic socialist system, there are at least somebody who's very very liberal. He's got deal with a lot of other candidates this time besides just one person and Hillary Clinton. And then there's the fact I mean, I know Donald Trump is the seventy-one, but I think that's a little bit different than seventy six. And if you takes office, he'll be seventy eight which means Bernie Sanders in his second term when he leaves office could be eighty seven years old. Now think about that L. Look, I obviously you've never been that age not even close to it. But I gotta think there's a big difference between when you're in your early seventies. And when you're in the late eighties, just in terms of capacity. Probably right. And I wonder if that would play a role, but I have a feeling it means nothing Sanders campaign. Meanwhile, twelve seconds ago. This went on the hill dot com. They've already raised four million in less than a day. Well, you gotta expect that of course, there's going to be a huge job. Yeah. Because he's everyday is expected and get tired of that. This happened. I'm not at all surprised by that. Are you with me? Were you think that this is Kamala Harris has to lose this nominee? No, I'm not with you. Why is that not with you at all? Because I think she's a new fresh face I stopped who in the past walk Obama, Donald Trump. No, I think fresh faces gleaming. No. I think that's good. But that he has a good thing. I didn't really know anything about her knew nothing about her time. You get to know her. No, I think these are these are positive thing that makes her a friendly. That's good, but that will wear off quickly..

"three hundred million dollars" Discussed on Outside the Lines
"I with Adrian wards announced he broke this story. He's been on it since the jump ESPN senior NBA insider so Adrian Klay Thompson now entering the discussion today, you talked about how he may be interested in the Lakers if things go well with Davis well with one big caveat, if the warriors don't offer him a max contract, the warriors go into negotiations of summer and ask him to take a little bit less. They have a payroll that could be approaching three hundred million dollars payroll luxury tax next year if they were to keep everybody. The Lakers would have interest. He grew up in LA, dad. Michael Thompson still does broadcast for them. And that's if they got Anthony Davis now, financially, it'd be really difficult to create the space to add a third star. He'd probably even have to take a little bit less there. But we'll see what the warriors do this summer. I think in a perfect scenario where they offer him a max deal. I think he returns with Steph curry, you know, it's interesting Tim McMahon just talked about how it behooves the pelicans to wait to sit. And wait you've said the very same thing. I think a lot of people assume this could be a done deal for the Lakers. But the waiting game makes it harder for all these pieces to come together it does. And I think the fact that the Tim Senator Lear that pelican the pelicans know that the best offer the Lakers can make between now and the trade deadline will likely be available to them into the spring and summer, and it behooves them to get the Celtics involved in the bidding the Celtics have certainly the most draft picks. They have outstanding young players. Boston has been you know, hoarding these assets for years with large. In part because they wanted to make this run and Anthony Davis who they thought would eventually become available. It's happened. And so that may drag help the drag this process out, you know, it's interesting what you say when in my former life, I used to negotiate contracts, and if you had multiple bidders, the last thing you wanted to do was be the person who set the market everybody else bids off of you. So why does it make sense for the Lakers to even make an offer right now knowing that the New Orleans pelicans could say no hold them to that known that offers still going to be there and have everybody else bid against them. Well, right now, the Lakers have a window where Boston's not bidding and so the best they can do is hope maybe New Orleans. Maybe ownership maybe organization doesn't have the stomach to have this thing. Play on over months. Not every organization wants to go through that del Dem's the GM in New Orleans heat when he started the job he went through this with Chris Polly inherited that situation and went through that long process. It puts a lot of stress on an organization. The Lakers are gonna make an.
