Let me find a defensive tackle. if i don't draft one that's better is fully capable of being a rotational starting out for me this year while we wait and get somebody else and jesse. It's funny. You mentioned that analogy of you. Don't always have to go for the ferrari but you should try and go after the ford jerry in his press conference with basically said he never overspent on something. That was really good anytime that he tried to get a bargain. That's exactly what he got. He got what he paid for. The truth is most anything that i've ever been involved in that ended up being special. I over paid for every time to the end anytime. I've tried to get a bargain. I got just that. It was a bargain and in a lot of ways and not up to standard. He seems to only do that on. Specific positions quarterback wide receiver running back. That's where he spends the big bucks problem and all the other positions he seems to like. You said kind of go. Bargain-basement look in the clearance. Been to try and pick up people that maybe are on their second or third team that he's trying to get a reconstruction project on them. I think that's the kind of thinking that needs to change. I continue to say this. And i realize this is more feeling than me than facts but it always feels to me that we always seem to well. This guy has first round talent but if he hadn't got injured. This person is a second round talent but he got arrested or this guy is really good or he had a drug problem. And i'm always just a little leery. Can we just get someone that doesn't have that but in the sense so real quickly on the head. They signed him two years ago now first of all. I'm firmly in that.

They signed him two years ago to the four year deal that he wanted. We'd be looking at two more years and he'd be a free agent now that deal would have been for years and one hundred and twenty million two hundred and sixty so it's gonna average thirty year but then two years from now he's going to get four years in two hundred million because that's what's going to happen with tv contracts so the salary cap will see a significant jump next year two years from now we may be looking at two hundred forty two hundred sixty million dollars and then who knows where it goes after that is the gambling and everything else really ramps up and that when it happened with guys that are not better than patrick mahomes.

"Social message social justice message on your uniform that you wanted. We know that in europe with the racism which is much worse over there. They've tried so many different campaigns in england. It's kick racism into touch germany. They headline freund elslander. Foreigners are my friends. How is it because still to this day you will have people who will say evens. Latin marovich about lebron james. Sick stick to sports. We're watching sports to get away from politics. But she can't get away from it. So how do you think that works with the fans. Well first of all. I'm glad you said his name. Because i can't i but but You know it's interesting to me because entertainers and athletes are entertainers in other fields of music. And hollywood have a long history of political activism But for some reason. We've always had this here that. Oh yeah you know. The athletes should stick to sports. And i think it's a little demeaning but also you know the incidents going back there there were always been individual activists like mohammed. Ali like John carlos and tommie smith but they didn't have social media so they had to rely on the news to kind of accurately report their sentiments to reach the fans. Now the social media has changed that dramatically but the real watershed is the teams themselves. The owners the league's management getting involved. Which is a very very new phenomena You know in the nfl the nfl committing whatever. Two hundred fifty two hundred sixty million dollars to combating systemic racism and the onfield messaging on uniform messaging You know if you watch the super bowl. Which i'm sure you did. It was almost like the announcers were getting paid for every time they could use the words unity and community broadcast. And and i think that. That's that's a big change that you know. The leagues have tried to stay out of the discussion and now they realized that they just can't. You know i think is cool is that you did a finding that i love. And that is that college students who follow sports on on average have higher. Gpa better grad rates higher incomes after they get out of school. I know when. I played college football during the season when i had no time on my hands i got better grades than when i wasn't playing around and i don't know what it is but i like the fact that you know because a lot of times they'll say concentrate on your studies. Turn that game off. Well it's all about budgeting your time and to me. I think if you're following a team it keeps your mind. I don't want to say more cognitively sharp but you're just you've just got more interest to me it keeps your mind a little bit more active is what did you find with that. Yeah well there's two. There's two things at play there. I mean first of all college for people especially the non athletes you know. It's hard adjustment for most people. It's often the first time in their lives. They're going out you know and being on their own and the new community with new with you know away from their friends and sports fans you know one of the things that being a sports fan has been proven to do is to make you happier and feel more connected to people around you so that in itself makes you better able to deal with the college experience more satisfied. You are happier you are. You're going to get better grades. And then some of these other things are self-fulfilling. Get better grades. You're going to probably get a better job But the cognitive part of it you know that applies not just to college students. Yeah there's been researched shown that following sports is mental exercise. Not different to me than doing crossword puzzles or do go and especially now i mean when when i grow up you know following baseball we just knew about your a. and batting average. And you know then moneyball comes along and sabermetrics there. I you know there's all these stats and the defenses football and basketball. I've gotten so complicated. You have to be sort of a student to follow the game. Well last question for you. And this is the most recent What during covid nineteen where everything shut down and all of our plants stopped and yet if you're healthy you can't really complain through this monotony but i mean sports i've never watch some any. Nba nhl games. I took it for granted. I mean sports has really helped. During the pandemic. I totally agree and i hear that anecdotally from a lot of the people. I talked to get emails. I just like what you said. I've never watched so much sports. Get the ratings. Have been sort of mixed. Mlb was Wnba was up a lot. Football was down I think the big thing to things is. We had this long gap without any sports. So the people who were used to sports really missed us but also everybody was sort of stuck at home and you can only been so much net flicks Sports are also. Has you know an immediacy. And it's it's a live event. It's unscripted so it's different experience than just watching you know. Endless movies are endless. Tv shows because you know it's it's new every time. So i think played a really big role and i think as people You know see fans returning to the games through their tv. That's part of what builds a community of feeling like you're part of something. 'cause most people watch sports on tv. That's larry olmstead the award. Winning journalist his new book just came out yesterday from algonquin books. It's called fans. How watching sports makes us happier. Healthier and more understanding. Congratulations on the book larry. It sounds fascinating Hopefully we'll catch down the road. Yeah thank.
Memphis Police Union Head On Calls For Reform
"Simon Congress many cities states and countries say that they want to reform police practices but any reforms we need to go through police unions Michael Williams heads the Memphis police union and joins us now thanks very much for being with us Mr Williams good morning how are you fine thank you Sir I want to ask you about the commercial appeal newspaper there points out that the the twenty nineteen city budget called for two hundred sixty million dollars in police services but just a little over four million to housing and they suggested that maybe giving more people shelter it might be a wiser way to spend tax dollars and even bring down the crime rate how do you spell that it is it is hardly wholeheartedly I don't necessarily agree with the funding police but you know this is something I've been working on not just as a union president but as a citizen and as a native Mississippian we have started to spend too much money and economic development we've diverted too much money of course tax dollars into pilot when you live in the second most violent city in the nation which is massive aside from what happened to Mr Floyd which was working near active and there is money it's just a matter of prioritization we are not a bank we are a D. that the citizens pay their hard earned tax dollars which I am one of and we deserve to have a better amenities better core services and not necessarily spend all our money to make the rich richer well let me ask you something that might be a little tougher than than just money if I might put it as that well Kerr twenty eighteen there were reports that maybe the Tennessee bureau of investigation should be the responsible party for investigating officer related shootings officer involved shootings in Shelby County which is in Memphis would you advise your members not to submit to interviews in and give statements to the union right what a good deal everybody thinks that because you're a police officer you want to separate me from being a Christian everybody's entitled to their Fifth Amendment rights just because I'm a police officer don't necessarily mean that I give up my constitutional right and we encourage officers to give statement but if you're going to compare all day on the guild's statement and they should be covered by what we call god I can't even think of the name now well was that after I did give me a chance to follow up anyway recognizing that their citizens in every US citizen is entitled to right right not even close off incriminate yes exactly but what about the idea that of course police officers are also public servants who by the way are entrusted with sometimes lethal force and and that they ought to submit themselves for interviews the responsible parties as soon as possible in the public interest sure well that's not a problem but also you know just as any one of this country I love this country and what this country is built on no one everybody's innocent until proven guilty number two everybody is entitled to representation you know you try to paint not necessarily you but they're individuals I try to paint unions this organization we don't set policy so when they talk about reform and all that well we don't the city of Memphis state Tennessee legislator legislation base that policy we don't we just abide by the policies that they sent for now only just like any other organization that has the ability to say that we like this or don't like that but that still doesn't determine what policies are going to be set so you know I think that there's a bigger agenda at play when it comes to unions across this country everybody's represented yeah let me ask and we just got half an hour left we went about the forty eight hour waiting period before an officer accused of misconduct can be interviewed about it would you be willing to give that up in collective bargaining no because just like with anything everybody's traumatized when they go through a dramatic situation I'm a combat veteran and I definitely understand post about express disorder also understand so therefore when you start coming at an individual right after something happens you know it's just like a citizen our system has the ability to either talk or not talk and that's something that everyone continues to try to take away from of police officers that I don't think that that's right Michael Williams of the Memphis police unit thanks so much for being with us you're welcome

Chief David winning running so David Walk me through where things currently stand. How unprecedented are the fires? So the fires have been through more than six chameleon hectares of land that is by phone away the the largest devastation that we've seen from Bouchon in terms of lives lost thankfully Kelly. This isn't as big as the Black Saturday. Bushfires a two thousand nine hundred seventy three people lost their lives in a single afternoon oversee when you have devastation on the scale you're looking at a very long recovery effort industries such as tourism will take time to macabre because many people would go to Townsville St landscape what they will encounter now landscape that you would typically say it on the front line of a war zone even just trees and buildings gutted. Yeah we've got the slide show up on our website and I've been looking at the images. The sad burned koalas the apocalyptic skies. It seems like it's another world exactly you know an particularly agricultural industries. I mean if you've got an apple blue-chip for example. It takes five years for an apple tree to get to a point where it's productive you know if you have a pine plantation and you rely on on on Kimba for your industry well that takes even longer. There's GonNa be no quick fix for this Sumani will be Australian government has promised two billion Australian dollars switches the equivalent of one point four billion. US dollars to aid the recovery effort. That's an initial sum payable over two years and they've signaled that there's more money available as needed now. These fires started much earlier than they normally do in the typical fire season months earlier in fact. Do we know what happened. Eastern Australia Elliott has experienced a three year drought last year was the hottest on record and you know the the conditions of combined to create the basis full will to break out climate change. I believe in my opinion is played. A part of the individual fires may even have been started through awesome. But it's definitely. The case of this landscape was tinder. Dry going into what we call here. The bourgeois season so is the worst over nerve the peak for season to the end of February. Still at least one and a half months to go You mentioned and climate change earlier. Hasn't Prime Minister Scott Morrison been criticized for his stance on climate change. Mr Morrison's Party represents Abboud range of communities and they include mining areas eastern Australia this one of the major hops coal mining in the world and you his policy has sought to balance the interests of farming communities mining communities in the constituencies that he also that presents yesterday when he announced the big recovery found he was all set. You know do you intend to change your policy on on climate. And he said that's not my focus right now. My focus is on on dealing with a bushfire crisis. He has however stressed his commitments to limiting carbon emissions. That Australia's May as part of the Kiet. Political so I think when the focus of the cavalry effort develops I think when morpheus get extinguished hold onto control troll. The pressure will miss the Morrison to adapt his climate policy with inquiries. I know the cost is still being calculated We have some data that says Australia's has insurance council says the two hundred sixty million dollars worth of claims have already been filed. But what is the sense of how these fires could impact life in in Australia. Going forward. You full straight as Australians themselves. You know these are the sort of existential questions. Do they feel safe going camping. Do they feel you'll save going at it in the Wilderness and for the communities that live out that initial houses in a rural area. Do you feel safe. And how valuable is your property now which you find by full of it and why would you go. Would you go into a city many of weight. Cities like Sydney and Melbourne already a congested with strain services. Assay you allowed to bat and and and these are the sort of existential questions that feel.

But one of the markets picking up India hundred eighty two million dollars is the inflows for the shares MCI India, ETF over the past over the past week. That's the biggest weekly inflow in four years, basically, since two thousand fifteen and it's predicated on. Narendra Modi getting reelected, a little bit of political stability.

Wrinkle with the India story is the US is basically set to remove the designation of India's a developing nation, June fifth, which is today. And in terms of the actual impact on this, what it means is that some two thousand products that are exported to the US would would have been they were treated as duty free.

And I was pretty growthy. Pretty apologize. I'm not too because avengers and games coming out this weekend. So we're going to be seeing that, and yeah, I got tickets. Yeah. I got tickets online, and I was one of those. Well, I've really big into the whole marvel venture movies because I got two sons, and even though they're nineteen it's steam now they like going to the movie with their mom, which is kind of shock right mostly teenagers. Don't really like to hang out. What their parents, especially their mommy, and no, I don't I don't have do the kids. I do. I bears the kids. But here's the thing. I'm not as fair parents were I think I'm way cooler than my parents. I mean, I still every time I see him and talk to them, you know, and that allowed it resonates, but in a movie theater, I guess the reason why my kids are. Okay. Going to the movie with Rama is because it's dark, and so nobody can really see them with me. Again as long as in the middle of the movie. I don't go. Then, you know, people people know, but I've been either really fortunate with my kids, and I think I figured it out. I figured out why my kids wanna hang out with the same reason. I hang out with my parents when I was older, I pay when we go to the movies, I pay when we go to lunch pay when we go to dinner, I pay if they need food for lunch and clothes, I pay.

Everybody says I should leave a cliffhanger for my show. No, I really I don't know if I have to really do a cliffhanger. But it's it's something that I think. Really kind of brings out your little baby girl, baby. Boy, and you, you know, we idolize superheroes. Even though people are saying, it's politically correct now, and we need to get away from the kind of the macho captain America, and the, you know, the buxom e you know, wonder woman, but you know, it brings us back to when we were kids, and I don't know what it is. I mean, when I was a kid, you know, those superman movies, I loved Christopher reasons for man, and he stood for good. You know, he fought evil. He protected the little guy, and it was just a real real cool concept. You know, wonder woman ran ran with the whip. I thought that was a good idea. You know? And I thought you know, has women you could make a guy tell the truth, right? If you if you use that last it was like a LASSO, and I'm like, oh my gosh.

So, you know, people do step up to the plate. But you know, when you're still looking at all of America's issues and sixty million dollars dropped in one day. For a movie.

Because then you get him through his age thirty four season and a lot of times. That's that's right about when you don't wanna be signing players. Would you win would that eight year deal start? If you said that this year his age, if they did what the Rockies did and tore up his arbitration contract and said, all right? Here's the deal eight year deal on the table. Now starting this. Year with isn't different Jeff because there was only one year left on her Aaron autos. You're right. It is different. But if they came to terms where they wanted to do that deal, then maybe like the give and take would be that the cubs will be giving him an additional year where he's not on the arbitration salary. Yes. But the I guess you could make the count counterpoint that Bryant could say well by by agreeing to this deal, even if it's just two hundred sixty million dollars. I say just but by agreeing to that number and not pushing for three hundred I'm giving you an immense deal as well. And you can have me, you know, after I become afraid in-build the franchise around me and costs certainties there. I could see why both teams both sides would be interested. If if this is the amount, but the pushback might be if you're the cubs are you even if he looks healthy do you wanna see for a full season or maybe maybe just a couple of months that Kris Bryant shoulder. Is all there. That's what I was going to say, what do you say? We split the difference here instead of buying you out of three years of arbitration or what Aaron auto was bought out one year of arbitration will do this next year.

"Port squarespace. Make your next move. Make your next website. Okay. Back to fossil. I didn't. I didn't know what to make this. When the the news was first announced to know, how you reacted flow. But so Google decided to I can only put it as they decided to spend what comparatively seems like a piddling amount of money to buy some fossils electoral property and to acquire some of their research and development staff. Forty million dollars. Okay. That's not. It's only a piddling amount of money. If you are buying half a million dollar Davinci drawings or your Google, but I'm saying is at forty million dollars compare that to the three point two billion dollars. They spent to buy nest the one point one billion dollars spent fridge t smartphone division to say nothing of the twelve point five billion dollars. They spent on Motorola, but this wasn't an acquisition of the company that was just an unspecified piece of technology that Google apparently wanted and that apparently fossil was okay with selling plus some staff that they felt as though fossil could do without. I don't know whether they were essentially they were exclusive with people who would steal lunches out of the break room. Frazier. Matt how clearly label them or if they're actually like really really on the ball sort of people. So all we know is there was a simple press. Release joint press release from. Both people. There wasn't like a huge like announcement sort of events sort of thing. All we know. The only details we have or that the technology question is something to fossil has been developing for four years. It's an evolution of something that the fossil acquired when they bought the the fitness watch company misfits in two thousand fifteen they paid two hundred sixty million dollars for them. And so that let me go back to see what misfit was all about back in the day. They were pretty much, fitness and fashion focused. They wearable W A R E Abol will have links on the show had a really has the best coverage of this because they talked to a fossil vice-president Greg mckelvie who described it as quote, a new product innovation. That's not yet hit the market. So indicating that this. This is not even something that we've seen in apple watch yet. He also was careful to call the deal a transaction and not an acquisition, which is vice president level, nothing speak. It was a transaction which they agree to they wanted to acquiring something maybe, but he was I think he was saying that no that buying the company they just decided to here's here's something you've been developing here, you can have it for forty million dollars. And so he another longer quote from Greg mckelvey. Again, courtesy of wearable, quote, right now, we're focusing on finishing off development of the product. He said referring to the thing that they sold. The fossil group will bring the product to market across our full breadth of brand over time and then in through Google fashioned technology will be expanded across the industry overtime to benefit. All they also spoke to a wearable spoke to Stacey Burr who is Google's pretty much head of where she says, quote, we saw some technology that they were developing that we could be brought out in a more expansive way, if Google had that technology and was not only able to continue to use it with fossil, but bring it to other partners in the eco system unquote coachee it's about bringing great features to the whitest numbers of on the go consumers. So clearly, this is a this is a specific feature or specifics. I dunno resource that kind of like the round watch face that they were developing with Motorola that Google eventually said that. Gee, this is this. This is a great thing for the platform to own. So that any watchmaker could take advantage of it rather than it being a fossil exclusive sort of thing, and that kind of makes sense because. Because fossil is really they've been doing very very well.
