"So it's it is hard to get the matchup she wants. So you're trying to figure out. Who's left on their team? Who's lived on your team What's going to you the most fragile matchups? It's really coastal I think similar to what. Abc does so what was it. Kt guys waiting. Five fourth and last year in transmit copy was five on five and New Zealand. One three two two. What helped you guys. Secure the victory this time around as well. Now you guys have back to back Trans Tasman Cup winners outside how diverse last year we had Two inch less. We had a shooting. Listen the we had to kind of undead hordes Louis. We had the ogre kingdoms coming in. We had cities cities with quite a differing play styles. We had the Phoenix God. Kinda Frost Phoenix less than we were ahead. More shooting focus less so I think that diversity really lead to more favourable opponents love it Question from the chat That was submitted in advanced The game has asked who is debated guitarist named Jimi is it you or is it. Jimi Hendrix is finished by. I think I think heyndericks takes it out and most favorite and and Jimmy page. He's also from from what I saw. I kinda at every so often. We kinda interrupted Was the end of the lending session when LV announced older cool releases by the agency ART FOR K. Love the -sorts. There's some some really cool reveal than we Cheney Kinda see what you guys are doing in seeing some of the lists in Australia was up three to Neil. Also three the first three gainesville decided Dame scholtz Hussein who who was the I guess the moderator of the event organizer saw was looking a little bit nervous for you guys beds yet be smoking face. You'll stopping Especially say to those first Games that we dropped were too favourable matchups so we started just a little bit dance coming on his. But obviously they'd find two people on the bus against me and many They weren't expecting to win those two. So that was two different. Senate was Kinda the lift games that were to decide it in his office he. He's made the comment that he's he just in time to he. You have your white with gays so I guess let's hear about Your Trans Tasman Cup game. Did you play Gabe and his play? I enjoy beat wall on your own sons subsection and yeah it was. It was not much of a game. Unfortunately it's nothing. I screened it up. Obviously I play. Wilkins played masters. I know the inside out and there was not much you can do. Especially in that scenario border wall. It's kind of central objectives. He has the move forwards to take the central objectives. And I'm I've got an eighteen inch. Kill box so he can. Alpha may take off my my brimstone screen but senators and Ryan just kind of annihilate them. He won all the property roles in the in Dan. Dan's throwing shade up and saying he needed wings. Were coming He needed the guys to get three in the last four and Obviously Leeann was running around with pithy so you could be tough match up that in a league will the opponents and that was always going to be a great game. One loss down to the wire while Hayden's asking how did that shooting list so I'm assuming he's talking about was at Bates was bates. Reading sheet cost slim. Kosta shooting version. Yeah he the nine long strikes but also six GAD's so it was kind of a bit of a mixture exciting but different from what he normally runs Yeah don't think that went too elegant sir. Hayden Hit that. He went around with all his six Monsters in this little pack just destroyed the boat. Yeah he wasn't running. Yahu running is we'll try and it was. It was the lowest model count on me with six models from memory so Suka low touch and I think I think showing was pretty comfortable in anything like it was going to be behind it off. surprise yeah we. We try to talk about the thunder tasks and they're shooting abilities. But I think some either wings got ended up his screening units got taken off straight into the long shorts in thing. That was talking. He's amazing not only that he wants people talking about more so I think sorry but it was a great Battle you guys. Well deserve That victory again three from three guys we next year. We must have had to give up at night. You get lucky and easy English. Aimal Kasi Logo. Welcome to Cancun up that way. You guys like you might get invite so we we all kind of Friday night. Jim Adopt visit organized. Barbecue is about seventy to one hundred players came over for a bit of a fade. We told them we had Admission Vincent Trail was down. We had broadsides from the war game. Oh we had a whole bunch of people from the international domestic saying your really catching up In potentially meeting each other for the first time which I experienced loss g Jimmy Disease I barbecue. This is the first King Kong. You've attended correct. Yep had defied it. Good Was a little weird. The whole venue. I think a lot of US got drowned out without talking and we ended up just kind of going outside and and and having a little cliques which was a little bit funny but I mean so. He's going to be that way with that. Many people in a small hole but managed to get around a few groups and troops myself Some people are really enjoyed. It was good. Yeah lots of people coming from all all I've all strata Getting to catch up. I think it's something that the best events that I've been to have had these social element especially before the event where the You can go. Play gains the night before Whether they some type of breakfast or some type of DNA getting ticket getting to know people especially someone who who's traveled to tournaments in yet you may not have a lot of people friends you know Makes a huge difference when you go to the event so I really enjoyed that in. I'd highly recommend tournament organizers. think about that social element just as much as the The tournament I've seen the New Zealand. Mazdas you guys will get a house together a new you hang out as much as you play so I love you. Guys have had that social scene as well we do. I love socializing in in New Zealand. That's the reason we play after another funny question from the from the chat and then we'll get straight into The rounds that's chaos born has asked Are serial considered a soup a soup. That's a no me united it's cold. It's is no other milk based soups or excuse. Me Crema Weekly Aka. Jonathan has asked. Who is your favorite ruminates? Private Ryan was different. Jonah just Keeping the line keeping US PC. It's good and Dan Iowa. Shorts are believed that your next goal is to enter a few Australians events and win the Australian Costa's is this true. It's tempting. It's Ofri tempting I think I think the the shorter kind of masters rounders is making it looking not likely Fisher with some of the other tournaments already sold out stiffly something but became too. I Love Masters Masters where you go and you have. I don't know how many you guys pay about five hundred. Five solid games of As a competitive player you know go to a tournament and you have half of them. You'll find competitive fires in maybe half. You isolates competitive players and I think those those computer games are really kind of love the game for so coming into a masters in having just five really competitive gains that. Come down to the wire that's up to do. Yeah Yeah I loved it very wanted. The mosque disease The MAZDAS isn't invitational event. Way The best sixteen traditionally are invited to play in a tournament to decide. Who is the best agency by play in that particular region Strategy New Zealand England Bancaria runs the the The UK Conard sitting on for that that point system. And the way you kinda get. The invitation is based on a point system from your top three performances in that competitive season so winning Cancun differently gives you a huge amount of points and it gives you that head. Start that Basically the high you rank the more points you get so the top threes the way. It's kind of organized. So Alsatian I think this year is eighteen months primarily because masters traditionally fail around December which is usually a crazy time for people with Christmas. And things like that. So we've kind of moved it Louis. Cloistering the so. That's that's one of the goals in the IB skates play. You the instructed saying I think the fact that you're in New Zealand accused me be more confident you know coming over in particular completion. Yeah it's Kinda spouted my mouth a bit prior to Can come and see if I did. Well they'd look to come over and Damascus. I think time wise. It's it's it's I don't have bobble. That would be before we get into these one of the things that might be unique to Al. Seeing that are other other things may not have is that play is are expected to bring three pieces of charade Now as you can imagine. Clean the heralds of wool who runs Cancun with one hundred two hundred forty players who registered so a hundred and twenty tables. If you thought about that there are ten paces. Terrain per table tend to ten to twelve pizza terrain. That is awash. It's a lot of terrain so one of the things that we we have to do. A as plays is we bring three pieces of terrain with us that we put on the table and we organized Kinda amongst ourselves having him on the table Through conversation Jonathan from the weaker has asked how I put with a straight face trained for you or even for your opponents. You've played I would say that in my sex games. They didn't matter it'll and they potentially could have added in the last game. It was the he had the most kind of shooting units. I reports pieces where I could potentially hide some thirty two millimeter models. Nothing Too Crazy but that ended up being and nine inch deployments. I'm sorry I'm a fifteen inch deployments on And that really Hamptons ability come on the sides with his His shadow warriors so. I don't think it actually played.

"You wanna point out a couple of the of the quirks that kind of stand out, we kinda mentioned the left field in the right field being so short. But also as the as the stadium was further being built out in, in the years following there were two decks, right? And some porches that not only was it's short down those left and right hand sides. But left field sides in right field side. You had the porch that actually encroached even further which arguably made it even easier to make a home run. Right. Among eggs, and it wasn't that was on the left field. Five the second deck right on, right? Field was pretty much rush found, but there was an overhang of the twenty one. Twenty one feet. That's an incredible overhang of the second deck in left field. People who are little, little younger, but still old enough to remember tiger stadium from twenty years ago tiger stadium had that in right field with the second deck that overhung I. But it wasn't as dramatic. It wasn't as far out. And I'm not sure if it really if there could have ever been a fly ball of the angle at tiger stadium. Where scrapes the second deck when would otherwise not have gone into the first deck, but that was definitely the case at the polo grounds when at hung out there twenty one feet. And when you take a foul line and put it down there at an angle John pass tears pointed out that the effect of distance of was almost like twenty seven feet. Because with these very short distances down the foul line defenses. Then went out at a one hundred thirty five. Degree angle. It's quite what is it up to says, they'd say look most stadiums. Today, are when I go to target field and the great stadium and watch the twins. Now, you know, the fall lines go out there about three hundred thirty three hundred forty whatever it is. But then the fences are perpendicular to the foul line. They go out of ninety degree angle here. It was going out at one hundred thirty five degree angle, which meant if you pulled that ball, you can get an easy home run. But if you didn't pull it if you pull the piece more to left center, or right center, it probably wasn't going to be going over the fence because those distances from being very short at the follow lines got enormous as the fence went out to the power alleys. It's just it's just amazing. I mean you're talking about left field was to seventy nine ish. And I think right field was to fifty eight ish, and then what did centers four hundred eighty three feet. Right. Which is that little? Knock, and in between that or a besides each side of that is four hundred fifty and it's almost twice as long. Yeah. And you know, this is game one of the nineteen fifty four World Series a pit of is that more than anything on, on how the park could help or hurt because that's the one that Vic works at this permits drive to centerfield Willie Mays made us. Great catch on. And you know, people sometimes say that was four hundred sixty feet. I it's more about four hundred feet, but he was able to have room to catch that ball over his shoulder. Then make a great catch in so that rob Vic word and kept the Indian from taking the lead on the eighth inning. And then later, dusty Rhodes steps up, and he it's a pop two hundred sixty feet. I mean sometime when you go to the ballpark whatever ballpark you're in just kinda looked on the line a little bit. And imagine where two hundred. Sixty feet is, you know you can kind of figure it out. You know that first base is ninety feet down the line. And if it's the right field fence is three hundred thirty feet away and kinda figure in there were two two hundred sixty feet would be, and it'll blow your mind looking at that same. Really, they had offense at close. And that's what dusty Rhodes stood he'd hit the home run to win the game. That was just a pop up that went over that. So that, that shows all the park could could give and take I guess and but the the center field and we're willing needs caught the courts drive. It wasn't where that notch was was going out. He was still a little bit short of the warning track and to his left as he was running out there. That's the notch when there were various distances to the to the fence listed with the when the New York Mets, where they're I think they'll do is listed four seventy five but for most of the forty three you had stairways up to the clubhouse that we're in. Play. You had the Eddie grant monument that was out there that was in play and on balls. Good ball surrounded. But you just figure if a ball ever bounced into that notch. It was probably going to be an inside the park home around, even if even if the center fielder outta go, navigating a monument or a stairway to get to the ball. It's just if a ball got out. I don't know the funny thing really ever shit there on the fly. There were few batters who are able to hit home runs into the bleachers out there. Hank Aaron show, Adcock, Leuke Stor and Lou Brock who should hit him, straight away Senator, the point that they were even able to, to get into the bleachers, but where that notch was why, why was there? I you know, who's to say when they when they remodeled that stadium in nineteen twenty two twenty three and so they put the office building out there. But why why? Did they not just keep that fence just one more quirk that adds to the fascination of the stadium and the my census? The bullpens were also in play in deep left in deep right fields as well. That had to be interesting on a couple of game. Yeah. And of course, we've got to know bullpens as the still aren't some ballparks and that are that are in play, but in fall territory. And with the polo grounds the bullpens were in fair territory. I'm not sure if there's really any other stadium with that was the case. But on the other hand, they were so far out there, probably, you know, you can get into the corner for thirty four hundred forty feet out there, that it didn't really matter. If pitchers warming up if they saw ball coming out their way, I suppose they can just get out of the way. But that, that's the they were in the field of play in fair territory that distance. They might actually be a few more seconds, actually, to get out of the way because it's so deep. Yeah. Yeah. You could see coming. So I got one other quick that, that stands out in my mind. I'm sure there, there are others, especially not having been there or experienced it as this before my time. But I do I have this right that the outfield actually sloped downward from the infield, and that it was hard for people say, the dugouts to, to even see perhaps, some of the more distant fielders as they got sort of closer to the fences. Yeah, I don't know that, that one of a kind of the polo grounds, although it might have been more pronounced and that appear sitting in the dugout and you wouldn't even see the outfielder feet, but a lot of fields were were crowned in a certain way to, to help with drainage, and some of it there, the polo grounds might have been a little more than you would see in most ballpark. So there was some unevenness or crowning to the field, maybe in the center, so that I, I don't know if it really ever affected any outfield. Fielders or anything catching a ball. It was probably more of an issue at Crossley field in Cincinnati where they had that, that incline. And you know, there's some of the old ballparks in fact, Houston with a new ballpark that opened in two thousand one Enron field. Minute maid park. They had that on center-field this to put that in there, where it was sloped up word on, I guess, for safety reasons about two three years ago. They finally eliminated that so that probably some of those things in some of the other ballparks probably affected. The outfield is a little bit more. What were you able to tell from the writings that you corralled in this book in your own sort of investigation, and learnings and passion, shall we say about the fan experience seats sight lines conveniences and, and we can will get into maybe the later years of the stadium which would be add to it's not? Tremendous, you know, environment but, but in its day was this a fan friendly kind of environment slash experience. You know. That's right. Depends on who you talk to. I mean for me it would be if I could if I could go there and see it, I would just be fascinated with. But I you know, in my imagination of going back in time machine, I always imagined myself having a pretty nice seat. Maybe right up during the second behind home plate, something like that. But there probably were a lot of bad seats in there and the shape of that kind of a ballpark to means unless you are sitting right behind home plate. You're gonna have your view of one of the outfield corners cut off. That's and that's not unique to the pullover on a lot of the stadiums like that. If if you get off on the right field side. Now, all of a sudden you can't really see the right field corner are vice versa. So, but the first book I did on the polo grounds. I. I took quotes from two different people on it, who had been there, and we're writers and had different perspectives. Roger Creamer, great biographer, you know, wrote, Babe Ruth biography, and, and he said it was a terrible place to watch a ball game. It was like watching it through a picket fence. And, and then, of course there are post in there. There are we're in a lot of the stadiums and some stadium still art Fenway park Wrigley field. If you're sitting under under the deck or under the roof, you might be behind post Fred Stein wrote a book called under Coogan, bluff, and grew up in New York, and he loved the place and he said it was a great place to watch a ballgame that the so, you know, you guess you talked to people friend of mine here in faint, Paul grew up in New York. Lot of eve at the polo grounds and he liked it. And, you know, I'm not sure. If people even appreciated the history, I or the uniqueness of it at that time we're still GIC now. And, you know, I think for many of us just spoilt wish I could have been there and people at that time, just probably as a place to watch a ballgame and what mattered most to them was what kind of you, they could get how far away they were. They had a post blocking them without necessarily appreciating. How historic it was unique and one of the things this on tala cheese, that I wrote to about two hundred forty players who had played there and I got about seventy responses, which I was I, I was pretty happy to get that many responses, and from the players to and they might have been looking at a little bit different a pitcher gets victimized by short home run. Probably hates the place. But some like L Worthington pitched here with the Minnesota Twins. He pitched for the Minneapolis millers baseball team that played in Nicot park, which was. Nice ballpark before my time he, he's through the final pitch on that. And I've corresponded with him and talk to him. And he had an appreciation for being a nickel park in Minneapolis six-year-old ballpark in his final game..
"two hundred forty players" Discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM
"Right and his legend. Check it out this morning. And his day when he was drafted. There's only twelve teams right sits in the west and east. He was twenty seven rounds. In those days, you know you had to two hundred forty players who all twelve teams. In other words, same as it is that they accepted, fewer around two hundred forty the magic number. He was crafted in the seventeenth seventeenth round. And I remember when he was Alabama quarterback you play. Both plays defensive guy can quarterback under there by and I remember the distinctly way the the really the ice game that if you remember that the ice, the ice boy is twenty five below zero in Green Bay playing against Dallas cowboy cowboy Tom Landry, and of course, the great man rocket greatest football coach of all time, then somebody, and the, the ice bowl, you could see on television, the bench over there for the Dallas Cowboys, they had these gigantic fan blowing hot air to, you know, to the bench of Calloway, and he looked like nine okay, the north with all this close. And when you look across the field bardy, and the guy's Green Bay sitting on a bed. Was not known at all. They were they were only slows instead of Georgia Andrei that was lost to toes in it game from frostbite it was and the last man to man that scored the touchdown to win the game. Guess who star as we all know that took the first time that the NFL was into playing the AFL 'cause they really didn't start really into the core. Assistant coach Terry, but nineteen seventy it was all one way that when they win and sick. While I didn't know them personally but I know one thing about him off the field. He was just like my boy works on this very, very humble. And I want to express my deepest sympathy to his family. I know believe remember correctly Jody he hosts his son to suicide years ago. He excellent, excellent man both on and off the field. There's only one God at every got in an argument with with on buddy at man. The gravitas to do, so you mentioned the ice bowl there has since years after the fact, the famous quote came out that before the Lombardi Bart star scored two game winning touchdown. When over to the sidelines in knows freezing cold conditions and said to Lombardy, hey, I think I can sneak it in. And as the legend and story goes Lombardi looked him in the eye and said, will in go ahead and do it. Let's get the hell out of here and he, did he ducked behind his offensive linemen, and just got over the goal line in the Packers won one of the most historic games, we, we knew it was historic then. And it has only grown over the decades since when the Cowboys on the frozen tundra times. Chris Berman say that over the years on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field. Quick side, and we'll get back to Lombardy. I've actually been to lambofield twice. Twice. I went to see Packer games playing eagles. Both times when with travel groups from Florida out to see it both times in the earlier half of the season. One time week two of the NFL season. It was eighty two degrees. I got a sunburn I wore a short sleeve shirt, I think long pants on. But I wore short sleeved shirt, and I came back the next eight the back of my neck because we were sitting on the side of the field where the sun was setting so the back of my neck and my arms will both sunburn. I went to Green Bay to get it son, but you don't you? Tundra of Lambeau Field. Noth Jody mcclinton Green Bay and got a sunburn the other time I went at least it was again early in the season but at least it was a night game. So there was a little bit of a chill in the air, not the pros and tundra. I can guarantee you that as a matter of fact, we stayed in the walkie walk into a bus up the next day. So he got in on Saturday night and Sunday. We had nothing to do because the game was until Monday night. We went to a brewers game because you're staying in Milwaukee. And Randy Johnson pit for the Seattle Mariners that day walked up. Got tickets these even need this, the it was late in September Seattle wasn't in Milwaukee wasn't in it. So we walked up and got like twenty rose off to field. Tickets for face value. Whatever was we got to see the big unit. But I did make Green Bay twice. Never saw the frozen tundra. I didn't see Bart Starr. I barely remember Bart star as an NFL player because I started watching the NFL. Nineteen sixty nine jets won the Super Bowl. So, yes, I was a we lagged and I do remember some of it by then the Packers had already won the two previous Super Bowl. I remember star in those two Super Bowls, but he was even better the net prior to that late sixties late fifties, into early sixties was when Green Bay was ripping off championship after championship after championship. And here's the thing about Bart Starr, I go to NFL reference dot com pro football reference dot com, and you look up Bart Starr's numbers. They so pale in comparison to what the quarterbacks are doing in the National Football League. It's ridiculous. Now you just have to realize that the game has so drastically changed from the time that part star played from nineteen fifty six to nineteen seventy-one that he's like the greatest quarterback of Zara only did was win championship. After championship after championship. And he oftentimes led the league in passing completion percentage, that doesn't change your completion percentage numbers aren't going to change. But total yards Bart Starr's high watermark in the National Football League. Hey, through four twenty four hundred and thirty eight yards in nineteen sixty two. That's like seven good week through a quarterback now in the National Football League seven he played fourteen out of the fifteen games that year and he got. Fourteen hundred fourteen games they only played fourteen he played off what that seven games now with the way they throw the football with the fact that wide receivers aren't being mauled by guys as they come off the line of scrimmage, the rules of changed the thought processes changed the way they moved the ball in the National Football League is changed. They don't run the ball like they used to in the National Football League. So if you just look at the numbers that part star has and compare them to say, oh, I don't know, an errand Rogers, who is the quarterback degree may Packers now not even in the same neighborhood. They're not in the same stratosphere Rogers numbers warm stars numbers. Star was a winner. That's all you could say about Bart Starr was he was a winner. He knew what it took he Lombardi combined the Packers knew how to run the ball and throw away. Add to they didn't throw it downfield. They threw good short safe passes and to talented wide receivers and tight end to make plays and turn it up the field. That's what Bart Starr was so don't for you millennials out there who think that the answer is always in statistics that if you look up statistics a one player compared to another, you can tell. But no, not if you're trying to compare someone who played fifty years ago to today's players today's game and today's numbers baseball numbers change somewhat. We're in the midst of a change now where everyone is quote unquote, worried about low and Changle aka upper cutting. That's what I call it, and it strikeout some more acceptable, but home runs more. Plentiful. Yeah. There's a pretty good change in baseball, but it's still sixty feet, six inches and is still on a pitcher against a hitter. A lot of things about baseball, the same as they were fifty years ago basketball has changed greatly. It used to be a slower moving game with guys wed different kinds of skills. Now it's tremendously athletic game but the shooting has come back into it hockey is hockey. They played a little less physical than they used to it used to be more and grind and not afraid to drop the gloves as much in the National League. But if you talk about the biggest change in sports. Over the last fifty years, it's the level and the way in which offense in the National Football League's created as compared to what it used to be it's just completely different. And the NFL is three's of change not the athletes gotten faster which they have and, or stronger, which they have. It's the fact that the league decided that they were going to put rules in effect.
