MLS made it i. mean it's Barry. manilow looks like we made et when they got to Orlando so I got a lot of respect for those brave souls, and to make it that much more fun. Couple of Tuesday's ago when the techie Aaron Glenn was in studio with Oregon's. Yeah, we're like hey, let's do away winner. Take all two hundred dollars. A person MLS Orlando a ornament pool. Let me guess. Nordahl came up with that plan because he needs to. Tip is movers. I did I came plan at fifty. A person soccer guy the producer. Like we make it to betty dead, I'm like cool.

He's going to put in the research time I put in the research time to. And and we assumed Nordahl did or maybe he just went top because he's quote. Soccer Guy in quote and felt he was prohibitively favored into the thing so like within the last three three and a half weeks this Patrick Mahomes of MLS Carlos Vela yeah. It it was known for like three and a half weeks. They GONNA go, yeah! Northern took him with the second overall best. No Right Oh. You didn't draft teams drafted players both Oh. Yes, so we're now. These brave. Souls are pushing to the purge. We've financially are going to be right there with them now. That's why you're watching soccer 'cause you got. Down the line we each got eight teams and we each got three. Players I odd call them skill. Guys and we've got one gully art, so I like this format.

Does the ironing in your. House. That nobody. There is no I don't I. There's no ironing in your household. There's also no dry and know. What do you mean you have a drier?

Jimmy Kimmel ditched his studio audience for a somber tribute to Kobe

"Jimmy Kimmel. Who does this show from here in L. A. had coby on his show fifteen times times and was so affected By the accident and by his death that he decided to send the studio audience home last night he did not have a studio the audience and he opened his show by saying this. Hi I'm Jimmy Kimmel and tonight show is going to be different from our usual. We'll show we don't have a studio audience here tonight because going forward with a comedy show didn't feel right considering what happened yesterday. So I'd like to speak to you. Directly we as you undoubtedly know Koby Bryant and his daughter Jonah and seven of their friends were killed in a helicopter crash yesterday here in Los Angeles and that was a punch in the gut for many of us. Kobe was and I know this might not make sense but he was just the last person you could ever imagine something like this happening to. He was so strong and handsome and smart and energetic he was a hero. And when I say that I don't mean hero like real heroes like firefighters or doctors and nurses who actually save lives. I don't mean to compare what he did for a living moving to what they do. I know there are more important. Things have basketball. Almost everything is more important but Kobe was a hero in the way. Superman is a hero. He was so big. It was almost like he was a fictional character. A real life superhero with a costume and everything walking amongst us. Those of us. Who Love the Lakers? No it seemed like he always came through. He always showed up to save the day he wanted to save the day. He had a force of will will. He never gave up as an athlete. He was incredibly gifted more than almost anyone. He was talented beyond reasoning. Yet he worked harder than everyone. He work harder than people with much less talented he had. He took his job and his pursuit of excellence so seriously he was completely dedicated to being as good as he possibly could be which is inspiring to anyone who does anything and we loved him because of that but we also loved him because he was ours we watched him grow up here he came to La when he was a teenager and unlike almost every other superstar athlete he never left in his twenty year career he will only wear to uniforms. Forums for the Lakers and for the United States Olympic team. There were times when it seemed like he would leave but he didn't he stayed until the end and e someone almost everyone in. This city loved not just Lakers fans. Everyone would light up when they saw myself. Many times he was special he was a special person a great basketball player for sure but more than that he had so many interests outside of sports he was intensely curious he would call people. He admired to interview them. Business leaders writers inventors. He was always learning always improving hunger for that when he was injured when he tore his Achilles. I sent him a book and he to my surprise prize's read it and then called me to discuss it in maniacal detailing want to know everything about it and then I was like. I don't know Kobe. I didn't write it. I just bought the book and I had to put them in touch with the guy who wrote the book and that's what he was like. I'd many conversations Kobe off of television and they always involved his daughter's water's always you. Once retired for basketball his life revolved around their lives. He was very proud of them. He loved being a father when my son had heart surgery he he checked in with me repeatedly he made a point once. Billy my son was out of the hospital to meet him. He wanted to meet him and from time to time. You check in to see how he was doing and yes I know he was not a perfect person. I understand that a my intention is not to canonize him or or make judgements about things. I don't know anything about but I will say he loved this family. He worked very hard and he brought a lot of joy to a lot of people in this city. And we're going to miss him and I hope you'll pray for his daughter Jonah. And for their mother Vanessa for the three girls. Kobe left behind lost their father and their sister and his friends were on that flight. Within the Altobelli Family Christina mousers family. Chester family are as a buy-in the pilot. I can't imagine how much they are missed. This was a terrible loss for those families and the Lakers for Kobe teammates fans. It's just there's no silver lining here. It's it's all bad. It's all sad. He was a bright light. And that's how I wanNA remember him and you're hitting all sorts of reactions like this Carmelo Anthony any now. Just put up an instagram post. Chris Paul put up an instagram posts. I think people are starting people who have been able to utter a word the last two days. We've seen Lebron last night now. Carmelo and C. P. Three today read part of the Carmelo. Anthony Post he says I hate when I have so much to say but I can't put any of it into words the times I have the most to say are the Times that I can't talk. I'm screaming inside but I can't be heard you don't know how hard it is to pretend to smile when I have these clouds of emotions you you just called me and told me you were coming to the game Friday and that you were proud of me so colby colby had talked to Carmelo and was planning to be at the game Friday night

Rachael Denhollander on the power of Larry Nassar's manipulation

"But I every investigation into wrongdoing begins with one person coming forward publicly in the case of USA gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar that person has been Rachel denhellender islander during Nasser's trial more than one hundred and fifty women and girls got up to speak about the abused they had been subjected to for so long the final victim to give a statement was Rachel denhellender there she asked a question how much is a little girl worth now she's out with a new memoir and a children's book with the same name spoke with Rachel from our ABC C. Studios and because we think our account is so important we wanted to bring you the whole interview in two parts in the first. She discusses coming forward with her story. When you first went to Larry Nassar when you first went to him you or how old it was just after my fifteenth birthday you right so much in here about that time period it and and some of the things you talk about not being ready to go there yet because you weren't quite sure what was happening and it's a familiar I heard from all the girls in the case. It didn't know yeah and that's actually a very familiar dynamic with childhood. Sexual in general most abusers are some of that you know awesome that you should be able to trust and so being able to reconcile what's happening with the person that this you know who this is supposed to be is almost impossible. Most childhood sexual assault victims victims don't really fully grasp what's happening to them and when you add a medical veneer over the top of that makes it even more difficult and then you add to it that most abusers are to an extent pillars in the community and you definitely had that that dynamic with Larry and so a huge factor that that kept me silent and kept me believing that this must be medical treatment was that I trusted everyone everyone around me not just my abuser trusted the community around the institutions and authority figures that surrounded Larry to have insured that he was doing accurate medical treatment and you also also did talk to one person and that was your mother who you guys rent went through all the scenarios of if we go forward what might happen at the time when you were just a teenager it yeah so. Larry abused me for almost two years and it wasn't until very near the end that he crossed the line that I knew is abuse and at that point I just froze and so I didn't know what to do with information and I didn't tell my mom for about a year because this shame was just such a heavyweight that verbalizing the abuse wasn't wasn't something news capable of yet but when I did disclose to her and we began having those conversations you know at at seventeen years old I had seen enough of how the culture treat sexual assault victims to know what would happen if I spoke in the last thing I wanted to do was speak up and not win because I knew that would empower Larry to be able to continue and I knew if I pulled that string with Larry I pulled the string of big ten university and I touched their department and I touched a United States Olympic governing body that made the most money out of our summer Olympics six and that touches the USOC and that touches Senate and so I was very acutely aware of the dynamics that I was up against an when I was seventeen I said to my mom. I can't do this without media media pressure. It won't be successful and I can't do this anonymously and so even had that discussion. What do you do do you walk into a newsroom and you say here's here's a story and you just hope they do something with with it? We didn't know what to do with that. We knew what it was going to have to look like to speak up but we didn't know how to make that happen and so really for sixteen years. That's what I was waiting for. I I was waiting for an opportunity and you really kind of put it behind you. You talk about the story of how you met your husband and how you had your kids and you moved on and you were ready ready to go okay. I can move on with this and then Cain that Indie star piece that you saw and you said no enough. That's it and that was the catalyst right yeah. That's what I was waiting for. You know I got to a place where I realized my healing can't depend on whether or not Larry admits what he does whether or not I ever see the justice or whether he stopped and I moved forward with my own healing but I was constantly watching for a chance just following his career looking for any crack that people were believing vink beginning to believe what was taking place in USA gymnastics because I knew if they could see the abusive culture at Sag they might be willing to believe that their own team physician could be the an abuser and that's really what I saw with at Indy start it was the first time that journalists had been able to gain traction pointing to the abuse of environment in United States gymnastics and being able to say this is happening and it's wrong when you went forward and made that decision to say this is what I'm going to do that was difficult for you because you wrote it all down and then can you write about how you thought about it and you said and then I just hit send. Sometimes you just need to hit send yeah and it was you know I'm I'm fortunate because there was was there was the internal battle of knowing what it was going to cost but because I had been waiting and watching for sixteen years I knew exactly what needed to be done. I near how I needed to be done and it really wasn't toys. I had always known if there is an opportunity. This is how it was going to have to be done and I saw that opportunity than as a shot in the dark but you have to take it how much of your legal legal background helped you with this case and knowing what to do and some of the things that you you knew were really important with all of this it was absolutely foundational because it allowed me to review review the case law and the statutes to look at the evidence that I had to be able to approach the prosecutor in the investigator insane. We have a case here this is this is how it can be proven. This is the evidence that I have and just guiding me through the process understanding the dynamics of communication and how to get the story out of Larry's control how to get out of the control of the university and the institutions that were surrounding him so that they couldn't control the narrative anymore next week. We'll bring you part two of that interview with Rachel More Oscar what it was like sitting through all of the impact impact statements and being the last woman to testify

"There's a power and balance. We have within our sport code of conduct that relationships between coaches and athletes are prohibited because of that power imbalance. And so, when we think about the policies that we implement again, this is focused on a dull tes within the membership of fifty different sports across fifty different states. It's not just Pacific to one facility or one location. We're talking about international travel. We're talking about kids on a soccer field and gymnastics acidity in. So we've really approach it from reasonable policies. To prohibit and limit certain one on one interactions. When I wanna share with parents is I think that it's important for parents to know is that parents are not required to give consent to a one on one interaction that is a choice of a parent we wanted to include parents in the decision making office, because we received really valuable feedback from them. And if a parent does permit a time specific one on one interaction because we do not allow for a blanket consent to specifically address the concerns about grooming that we know about if a parent does permit that talk to your child. See how the one on one went get to know the signs and symptoms of abuse, which we've created through apparent tool kit continue that open communication with your child and put that adult on notice that, you know, about sexual abuse prevention you've taken online training, and then you were going to hold them accountable, so that we're, we're part of this larger community approach so Syra returned back to you because. You or a former gymnast, who has experienced this abuse firsthand is what Katy Hannah just said recommending, you know, if there's that one time consent for parents to circle back and say, how did it go? I mean is that would would that be a meaningful way to intercede in the event of any even suspected abuse? You know, I think these are all very textbook answers, and they sound they sound really nice, but, but we are missing sort of the issue at large here, which is we're talking about the, the United States Olympic committee. That is charged with protecting our nation's most capable talented athletes who are representing our country who are a part of an organization that is riddled with the cancer of sexual abuse. And so this is this is so much bigger, the textbook policy, you know, answers, this is about changing a culture. And how do you do that? You tell the truth you stopped covering up, and you deconstruct these organizations who have failed thousands of little girls and young men, and we de certify the N G bees, such as USA gymnastics, who have proven themselves time, and time and time again on able to protect children. Well, since you mentioned USA. Gymnastics. I just want to note that we do have a statement from USA gymnastics. Again, it's just one of the fifty governing bodies that this new policy would apply to, and they say, we will never forget the appalling acts of abuse that have forever impacted our athletes, and the gymnastics community. We admire the survivors courage, and strength in sharing their stories and our goal is to do everything we can to prevent any opportunity for it to happen again..

"So the story that I wrote was about is there not a different way. And and there is a different way. So God knows the United States Olympic team has to try different way in scandalous and horrifyingly disruptive to young girls. Absolutely. Absolutely. So are they going to do that? In other words, the UCLA now have a chance to get her philosophy. I mean who runs the United States Olympic team anymore? Most arduous thing. So the US Olympic Committee, and USA gymnastics have each had anybody. Oh, yeah. Yes. And the sexual abuse scandal in USA gymnastics eight there are versions of sexual abuse. Verbal abuse, psychological abuse in a host of sports swimming, speed skating. I. Several other. So it's not unique to gymnastics. But again, the transaction has long seemed to be at the US OC level. If you win medals your methods or your methods. It's not for us to say. So this awareness that they have not only a moral obligation, but a legal obligation to make sure that their athletes are safe is something there are certainly acknowledge ING now and paying lip service to I am not sure that the safeguards are there either at the USOC or USA gymnastics safeguards, and or will to really change this pattern. And I say that because in both cases, the CEO's they brought in have a marketing background, there seems to be this impression that what they have is an image problem that that that they need to reposition the sport to get back the corporate sponsors to make parents feel comfortable with their sports again. I don't I'm just withholding judgement. I'm not at all convinced. I think the. Best safeguard is is openness as an all things. You know, if you're a parent and your child is training has great ability. And and you're kind of over the edge yourself is a parent. You know, that's not good. But if the coach doesn't let you watch practices if it's not open. I mean, that's a bad sign. You know, I think it's time parents be more engaged. Obviously. This goes back to what I said about Mississippi State. This is why I love athletes feeling empowered speaking out. I know I'm running out of time. But there is always going to be a special case for female figure skaters and female gymnasts because they must commit fully at age five six seven to be race..

"Called my sister survivors liars. They have passed the buck. You know, it's their fault. No, it's their fault. It's USA gymnastics fault. No, it's Michigan state's fault. No, it's the United States Olympic committee's fault. It's all their phones period. It's all their faults and we are still, you know there. There are people in leadership positions at USA g Michigan state and USOC who are still have their jobs. You know, they go to work every day. Nothing's changed. The board of trustees at Michigan. State University is completely entirely in tact that blows our minds. And so we're still waiting for people like USOC to stop concealing, to stop skating, to stop approaching this as a public relations and marketing problem, and start approaching this as a sexual abuse problem. Because that's the problem that the United States Olympic committee has. All you need to do is look in the news. It's in diving. It's entitled Ondo. It's in speed skating. It's in swimming. They have sexual abuse problem, and they're, they're passing blame. They're not taking responsibility. They're using something called safe sport to sort of be there. PR safe haven. They're not keeping our athletes safe. This woman sitting next to me, they national treasure. She is the world champion, the world's best gymnast and look at the way she was treated by an organization that is is supposed to be holding her in Haya scene at the end of every summit. At least the last couple. They've asked me and say, j- Julie Foudy to get on stage and give a little wrap up three highlights or moments or messages that we're going to take away from the summit. So I thought I'd share a couple of them with you here including this one. Julie Foudy. The one thing that seemed to be a common theme that we saw is this activism from players. We heard WNBA players sitting here talking about it. We heard the USA women's hockey team talking about them standing up and speaking out. We've seen it in talked about it with soccer teams, and I find it remarkable that these players have the courage to do it. But I also find it shocking that we still live in a society that requires that we have to do it. And so my thing that stands out when I think about this is is clearly we talk about a lot the need for cultural change in I ask all of you who are watching on the stream or here today as sponsors as corporations as people in these communities. Let's make it a goal that we create this change and we don't require that players have to constantly do that, and I love that they are courageous enough to do that. But when you see something and you notice something that's. Speak up. One of my takeaways came from the USA women's hockey panel as well, and they came up not only to talk about Olympic gold over Canada, but their fight for equity with US hockey federation, massive story that inspired other leagues and other athletes to ask for the same and how many of them took to make that happen. This USA hockey panel just reminded me that sometimes when you need to get something done, you have to make major sacrifices and also it has to be unified. So in all the ways that we may even here where we feel like we're all on the same page on the big issues in the ways that we might differ in how to approach them, how to change them, how to put together a panel, how to run your company or do strategy for your next marketing campaign. In all the ways that we made disagree the power comes from coming together and we don't do enough of that right. Now things so divisive and listening to the USA hockey women calling beer league players, high school players, college players, women who have never put on ice skates that might be called because they look at Lennick and telling all of them do not go play..

I'm not a parent, but I have very close to my nieces and my nephews, and I will tell you.

And it and it's worse anybody taking some time. So tell us who at this point is is needs to take it or how's that working for the organization? Sure. So right.

So that would include our selectors, and that pretty much covers that covers most of it right now for any events that USES is conducting for example, if it's a clinic than we would require clinicians that are going to be working directly with athletes, take it affoil. And and there is a physiotherapy program and those individuals are. Required to go through the the sport training as well as the criminal background screening.

But of course, their kids everywhere when you're in a bar, and you have kids why did the US equestrian start the safe sport program? How did it become a thing because I went to the page on the website, and it's very thorough. And there's a lot of really good information. So I'm dying to know what got you involved in this. What why the start what the great question if we've dial back to about two thousand and eight following the Olympic Games, there were a lot of claims that were made against USA, swimming, and coaches concerning sexual abuse following that we saw a lot of the other sports. They were Mike these headlines about the complaints that were made involving minors and athlete and typically it was coaches. And so the USA swimming with the first one to actually develop a formal program that was known as a face sport program. The US Olympic Committee at that time identified that, you know, there's an issue that's common across all sports, and they needed to develop some sort of criteria to ensure that all of the sports were were able to address and and manage these types of complaints. And so in twenty eleven US the question got bald part of a working group led by the United States Olympic committee, looking at putting together some resources, which eventually led the minimum criteria that each of the sports on the Olympic program, including equestrian would adopt and adopted into a safe sport program and following that involvement in about the two thousand eleven two thousand twelve timeframe we formed a task force. And we tried to cover the spectrum on representation on that cast force. Actually, George Williams from year was a member of the past Gore's. We had someone who'd been a young rider. 'cause we wanted a young perspective. We had a parent we had somebody from outside of question that was from another sport that had a lot of experience with in this in this particular movement, and we were looking at the minimum criteria that the that the United States limpet committee with with setting forth..
