Fresh update on "vegas" discussed on AI in Business

"Inventory management has come up in manufacturing, so many other use cases, procurement specifically, not exactly the hottest topic we've covered, but it's definitely an area where there's a lot of room for improvement. There's a lot of clunky guessing games and procurement and they are extremely costly if we get them wrong, whether we're ordering too much or too little of something or overpaying or taking too long to get something, all of these have downstream consequences in the manufacturing domain. Our guest this week is an expert in this space. David Schultz is the VP and chief supply chain executive at westfall, westfall is a manufacturing firm based in Las Vegas, Nevada. David studied chemical engineering before getting his MBA at Bentley. Westfall is a contract manufacturer. They do a lot of different things, but they work a lot in plastics and resins. David himself has studied chemical engineering before getting his MBA at Bentley university and then serving a number of leadership roles in the supply chain. Today, we break up this interview into two sections. The first of which is articulating what the specific challenges are in procurement in manufacturing. Why is this as consequential as it is? And what kind of rules of thumb guessing games do we have to play today and manufacturing to make business decisions? We have to guess how much our customers are going to do business with us. We have to guess which of them are being overly optimistic about the orders that they say they're going to do this year, which of them we think are being a little bit more truthful or have a better understanding of reality. We have to factor all of that in to how much we're going to spend for parts and materials for our manufacturing operations. The second part of the interview, we focus on where data and artificial intelligence fit into the mix, westfall is a client of orchestral, orchestral is the sponsor of this series. So we previously had an episode with Edmund Zachary, who's the CEO of orchestral.

"The other thing I'll say is one of the TikTok accounts I follow was talking about one of the stuffed animal bags that balenciaga was releasing as part of its gift shop holiday collection and she used a term that I had never heard, which is called panda eyes. It's slang for a horrible child related disfigurement. And anyway, if you compare what the term comes from its origin, a photo of its origin with the bear that balenciaga produced, it's sickening. So let's hope that demna gets what he deserves. On that point in particular, is there any other evidence besides the eyes on this stuffed bear resemble the eyes of an abused child, is there anything other than the visual similarities that this TikToker is calling out as them being related? I don't know. Which is the theme of this segment. I'm not sure. Because that one that one feels, I mean, you look at them and you can see, okay, I can see how people think this is similar. But it's not evidence of the court case document around child pornography next to kids holding bondage teddy bears. Anyway, I'm not trying to give them a pass. I'm just. It's just really, it really freaks me out. God, it's horrible. Who's buying balenciaga? Maybe he's losing his mind because nobody's buying that shit. It was the most crowd when I was in Las Vegas, like three months ago, it was the most crowded store in the casinos. But it's also the most laughable stuff. It's like, you know, whereas Martin margiela will create a dirty shoe and somehow elevate it to high art or high fashion. It's like balenciaga is not even putting in the effort to elevate it. It's just like selling the dirty shoe. What do we have any better news? No, but we have some interesting news. Well, this could be good news to some. Hit me. We know our feelings on the term clean. It doesn't mean anything. It's not regulated. There's no definition. So brands and people use the term clean without really saying much, but the implied use of the term is that the ingredients and the makeup of the production of this product or this person's personal brand, it's better for you. So there's a class action lawsuit now against Sephora who is bearing the brunt of the clean movement, the clean washing movement. And the lawsuit alleges its filed in the new York New York federal court system. And the lawsuit alleges that Sephora has been duping their customers and overcharging for products by using the term clean when in fact a lot of their products that they use that term to describe are full of synthetic ingredients that, according to certain scientific studies, are harmful to your health. And case in point, they mentioned, say, beauty, which I feel bad saying this because I don't want to tear down other brands, but I feel like say has always been like the clean washed glossier am I wrong on that? Yeah. It's basically like glossier, but with like, we're clean, but I will say the clean up Sephora, though, they actually define what they mean by clean, that you can go on Sephora's website.

American Casino Giants Win 10-Year Macau License Renewals

"Macau has renewed the casino licenses of several foreign owned casinos in a bid to boost its economy at a time when revenue has plunged under antivirus restrictions. The former Portuguese colony awarded the licenses to MGM Resorts Las Vegas Sands wind results and three Chinese rivals after they promised to help diversify its economy by investing in non gambling attractions. Macau is under pressure from the Chinese government to diversify with retailing entertainment and other industries and to reduce reliance on gamblers from the mainlands its main revenue source. The territory of 700,000 people is the world's most tourism dependent economy which has shrunk since anti COVID restrictions shut down most tourist travel in 2020.

Can you side shot side shot? iPhone situation whereas iPhone got run over and we had to take it to the Apple store now. I think we talked about that previously. So we had an appointment. It's in the mall. We go to the mall, the mall's crazy as can be crazy busy. Okay. And I think the mall traffic is coming back with the kids because of Stranger Things because of what they've done to repopulate it. So the Apple store is downstairs, we come in on the top level, okay? Gotta take the escalator, right? I think I know it's mall, you're going to, yes. Yeah, yeah, right. That one. Top of the escalator circled around the entrance to the escalator. Oh, lord. Completely blocking access to the, let me just reframe this for you. Holiday shopping season has already started. Crazy busy. We're just trying to get to our appointment, circled around the top of the escalator where you have to get on it. Is a family, stopped and completely conversing. In the middle of the road, the elevator was completely blocked. That's just ridiculous. People are just oblivious to what's going on around them. I really think the little air horn thing carrying this air horn in my pocket, if you guys don't know what that was all about. And just tooting it at people from behind. It will startle them, but we have to film this, right? You have to. So I think having side shot with you may give you a little protection. Yeah.

Just a little bit funny. And I don't know that you have to be aggressive. I think you just say, excuse me, and you keep moving, right? Yeah, pretty much. I think that's what you have to do.

Gearing up for 2024

"It is that week. It's that week where we remind you every week that the game is Saturday. There might be Thanksgiving between now and the game, but it's really all about the game. I believe Byron York is an agnostic about Ohio State in Michigan as I am neutral about all the Republicans who were in Las Vegas. Am I right about that Byron you don't give a dog on about the whole state of Michigan or Ohio? That is absolutely let's say that for, but I don't care about the higher state in Michigan. I was raised with Alabama and auburn, which is a much more important contest in my humble opinion. Well, it's definitely not this year. I don't think you're going to find many people are going to rally to the Byron York point of view there. But what did Byron New York think about Las Vegas and the first of many candidate parades of 2023 24? Actually, here is something I would very much like to get to your opinion on, which is I'm sure you've watched several of Donald Trump's rallies over the past 6 months. And there are critics who say, well, they're not quite as spirited as they used to be, et cetera. But they're pretty as performances. Let's just talk as performance. They're actually pretty impressive. And when you put him next to anybody, other than Ron DeSantis, perhaps, but also Ron DeSantis, just as a performer on the stump. You put Trump next to Mike Pompeo or Ron DeSantis or Mike Pence or Nikki Haley if she changes her mind and decides to run against Donald Trump. Would you have a 2016 situation in which one of the performers is so much stronger than the others? That there's a bit of an imbalance there.

Republicans Discuss How to Move Away From Trump

"Welcome back, America two here at David and drucker. I didn't give a damn for the whole state of Michigan either because he is from California, but he was in Las Vegas last week for the first Republican candidate walk. It sort of like a fashion show and all the Republican candidates show up and this time it was the Republican Jewish coalition headed up by our old friend norm Coleman. David good, Thanksgiving week to you. What did you learn in Las Vegas? I tweeted out your article, but you tell us. It was very interesting weekend. I think what struck me the most is that there is a lot of consideration now and very open public consideration of whether or not they want, whether or not Republican activists and donors, but not just donors, but activists, people who knock on doors, all of that stuff. Want Donald Trump to continue to be the titular head of the party. He's obviously the FrontRunner for the 2024 nomination having announced he's a former president. He's got a very strong relationship with the Republican base. But after three consecutive electoral defeats, particularly this last one stinging because of how it unfolded and the opportunities that were there for Republicans, there was just a lot of talk about wanting fresh leadership continue the former president's policies by and large, but somebody fresh. I got that. Not just Rome Republicans who want to take his place, like Mike Pompeo, Mike Pence, Chris Christie, Nikki Haley. I talked to a number of Republicans, not Haley, but a number of the names that I just listed. But also just talking to the activists that were there. And I think people need to keep in mind the Republican Jewish coalition initially skeptical of Trump in the 2016 campaign really warm to him quite immensely because his record in the Middle East and as it relates to Israel and Iran and everything else in that region of the world was stellar from their point of view and very accomplished from their point of view. So it's not like, well, they never really liked them anyway. If you became a fan favorite.

But did we expect it to be this fucking annoying? you guys lock up and go home? What kind of fucking union is this? Are you kidding me? The presidential election hangs in the balance and you're going home. Did we expect Arizona to apparently apparently I should say flip like we're being told it flip?

"vegas" Discussed on The Indicator from Planet Money

"A couple of weeks ago mountain west news bureau reporter. Nate heggie was standing on the edge of america's largest reservoir lake mead that straddles the arizona and nevada and it's massive more than one hundred miles long. Hundreds of feet deep and part of my job is to report on the growing water shortage in this area. Because let's face it much of this region is a straight up hot as hell desert. That's one way to put it and almost everyone in that desert gets their water from pretty much a single source the colorado river which is stretched thin these days. That river is where lake. Mead gets all of its water. It's the critical water source for millions of people. Living in seven states and cities like phoenix san diego and las vegas since the nineteen eighties lake mead and the colorado river at drying up because big reveal this is a desert a hot as hell desert right and climate change is definitely not helping things nor is the continued growth. Hordes of people are moving out west. And that's sucking lake mead dry and all this worries caldero rank. He's executive director of the base in water network and he focuses on water issues in the west. I'm i'm allowed mouth activist and these days. His loudmouth activism is focused on lake mead and the millions of people who are expected to move to nearby las vegas in the next few years. We can't go on with the status quo of just bulldozing the desert and squeezing as many people as possible and into those single family homes. This is the indicator from planet money. I'm darren woods. And i'm neat heggie. And this week we're talking about water in the west or the lack of it and today too fast moving trains that could collide that lack of water and explosive population growth support for npr and the following message. Come from usps. Your business is changing. Usps is changing with it. They're bringing small business.

Terms apply see capital one dot com for details. Las vegas is known as an oasis in the mojave desert. You fly above all these brown dry hot mountains but when you land in the city a palm trees lawns. That color emerald massive casinos also with big beautiful fountains and pools. But those big beautiful fountains and pools aren't actually very wasteful. The casinos are really conservative with their water. Cowering says they actually recycle a lot of it when i think of water waste in southern nevada. I'm not thinking of you know the tourists taking shower at the bellagio. After they just watched the fountain spit up and down outside. That's not what i'm thinking about. He's thinking about everybody else. That lives in las vegas and it's not about the water they use. It goes down the drain from showers or going to the bathroom. That's actually cleaned up recycled back into lake mead. What roaring is actually worried about is all the water. That's used outside on those green lawns or the golf courses or in gardens. You know that actually makes up about sixty percent of the water used in the city and it essentially evaporates so i asked him what he would do if we could anoint him king of las vegas and in charge of all water on day. One there would be no blades of grass. Left here are ip grass dead grass. No more in the city's actually pushed regulations that reduce the amount of grass and newly built home can have so no front yard only half. The backyard is grass. But you know that said. There are still a lot of existing lawns in las vegas. They'll probably be more of them. As the city keeps growing people love moving there right. Political leaders are so hungry to help. Las vegas grow that they're actually pushing federal legislation. That would sell off. Tens of thousands of acres of undeveloped public lands south of the city to build thousands of new homes for future residents. Maybe those new residents would want a nice organic garden or a patch of green grass. That of course means mobile usage. Yeah and obviously vegas isn't the only western city that's growing right like phoenix is getting bigger. They need more water saint george. Utah's growing they need more water and as we keep saying over and over again. There's only so much water in the west. These days i mean remember. Most of these towns are relying on this one shrinking river the colorado this brings us to the big economic principle known as the tragedy of the commons environmental economics. One a one. If you have a shared resource people will try to use as much of it as they can. The aren't necessarily bad actors right but they're just doing what's best for themselves taking a drink but as more and more people are developers. Take drink the water shrinks and roaring worries that people will start jostling for those last precious drips. you know. that's what makes us really scary is like. Are we setting up a situation in our country where one community is more important than other. So when isn't loses could emerge from the scenario. But eventually if all the colorado water disappears everyone loses in that case is government regulation needed. That's already happening. For instance all seven colorado river states each have a certain allocation of water. They're allowed to take each year and this year for the first time ever due to the drought that allocation was actually limited and southern nevada is already done a really good job of conserving. Water for instance. Las vegas has worked really really hard to reduce consumption among its residents and they actually chopped in half over the past two decades by changing rules and actually paying people to remove lines in creating these kinds of incentives. But much of the american west is a whole is still in love with its green lawns. They have to be eradicated. And like i hope that doesn't sound fascist but like having that green lawn goes against you know the nature of the mojave desert but these regulations take political will and not all state or local. Governments are on the same page for instance. There's this one small town oakley utah. They're actually imposing a construction moratorium on new homes. That would connect to the city's water supply because they just don't have enough water but in the same state you've got saint george utah one of the fastest growing cities in the country and they want to actually build a pipeline to suck more water from the colorado river so it's complicated because everyone from developers to political leaders to affordable housing advocates. They all say the same thing the whist is growing and if we shut the door stopped building we limit housing supply. Prices go up even more so cities continue to sprawl. In these dry. West and towns like phoenix. Salt lake city and boise. That helps solve housing affordability but it does not solve the water problem. And that's the crux of it roaring says if we do keep growing in these desert's we.

"vegas" Discussed on Straight Outta Vegas with RJ Bell

"Be coming up later on correct. That is true. Not just in vegas but everywhere but you bring up vegas. Thank you and i gotta throw nevada under the bus here. Because there is the most archaic horrible rule i've ever heard when it comes to draft betting nfl nba in the state of nevada. You cannot wage her on any of this. Jonas twenty four hours prior to the draft they force every sportsbook to take all of the odds off. So think about this. We're the one state that had a monopoly on sports betting and now fast forward to two thousand twenty one if i wanna bet on the draft and where guys are going to go where scotty barnes. If he's going to go number five. I can bet on a new jersey and some other states. But i cannot bet on it in las vegas makes no sense. That's crazy and there's also another aspect of this which i think a applies to if you're listening to this right now there's another angle on this. That applies to you that. There's nobody else that can give you the warning and the info and the tip you need to go ahead and make sure you don't fall victim to what they're trying to pull their in nevada up next.

In just a couple of moments from now there is a sneaky. Little game being played in the city of las vegas and we will get to the bottom of that tips things for you to avoid When it comes to this gambling world in this sick and twisted universe that we all live in. So we'll have that for you coming up in just a couple of minutes from now but it is a tradition. Unlike any other right now we must get the weather from these strip in las vegas. And this man who live outside the autograph table that pete rose is currently sitting at at the forum shops caesar's palace steven pheasant are fill in meteorologist. What is the weather like there on the strip. Yes so it's one hundred five degrees right now in vegas jonas and the neon. It's blinking by the way. Just pete rose still sit at the forum shops and sign autographs. Because that was the thing for a long time right every day. Mad i pete many times walking through and he has a phenomenal memory game. Four where he gets into or game three when he got into the fight with buddy harrelson and the seventy three. And but just you can. You can talk to him and he has a photographic memory of various games. They asked him how. Come when you're running on the basis you are always like holding your helmet down so wouldn't fall off. Didn't that slow you down. And he looked at me. Like i was from mars. Yeah well it's probably because he had His betting tickets wanted to make sure that you don't wanna get busted in his career. You wanted to wait until he was a manager. Fez yeah andy. Firm and fox sports radio legend cincinnati. Sports radio legend. He impede or friends and some of the stories that was. That was a wild time. I go onto the track betting on the ponies. Some of the bad bt suffered all of that snow. It's a pete rose man. I'm i'm pete rose fan. I what he did wrong but at some point you know you just gotta you gotta forgive people and get them into the hall of fame. I think says hey forty four game hitting streak number two an nfl. All time hits leader and the inventor as far as i can tell of the headfirst slide. Yeah and so with that being said now. We must dive headfirst into this topic of conversation in the city of las vegas here because look we want to help people out. Don't fall victim to this and as you were talking about before. We went to break the situation with the nba draft. How because things are predetermined basically. We all know who the who's going to be taken. Wear that not only sports books elsewhere but also las vegas pull these lines right to where you can't even get any action on this for how long up until the nba draft so in nevada. The nevada gaming board twenty four hours prior to the nba and nfl draft day require the sports books to no longer take bets on the draft. And jonas i almost look at this. Who is this protecting. Is this to protect the better for making bad bets. No not at all. This is one hundred percents of nevada's saying look we know. We got some operators that may not be so used to this draft bedding and they're gonna get burned woes is gonna text what player certain teams going to take and they're going to be caught with their pants down so we have to protect our children our casinos we don't want resorts world or someone else. That's a new operator in nevada to suddenly get crushed by the betters so we just won't allow anyone to bet on anything for twenty four hours prior to the draft and here's what so dumb about that all right because and this is what makes betting on the super bowl great because the set limits so because so what they do is and tell me if i'm wrong fez because i know this from just looking at some online sports books that i've seen before to where you can bet on these pets you can bet on color of the gatorade length the national anthem coin flip etc etc etc. You can get down on all of those from anywhere in the country but there's a limit that you can bet on them so that way they're not losing is so if there's information that comes in that somebody knows something you're not going to get as burn because they've set a maximum amount that you can bet on this and so therefore you're not going to take them for everything they've got because you've got sort of insider information on how long the national anthem is going to be and you bet on the over and so if you're if you're vegas why don't you start doing that like why don't you set limits on this stuff. Why would you turn away business when you've got an opportunity with people in town. Think they know a thing or two. Hey i can win twenty five bucks fifty bucks on who goes number one in the nfl draft with the nba draft. Don't cut him off. Twenty four hours ahead of time like set a limit in those in the next twenty four hours. So that way you can still get some action and therefore you people don't feel like they're getting duped by the sports books the entire town yes spot on and in fact to quote one sportsbook and their policies the win. Let's me bet they're very cordial. But when i bet on the app oftentimes i'm limited to two hundred dollars while you know what it's still spends two hundred dollars a nice dinner if i'm at home and i'm a thirty four minute ride to get to win out just put in the two hundred dollar. Bet if they have the very best number. But boom i'm flagged by counts flagged. I make the bet. The wind can say fezzes on the over here. We'll go ahead and move this. Appoint based upon a small bet because they know more often than not that winds going to continue to move. They profile the players. They take the winning players. They used the information. Adjust their lines. That's the optimal way to run a sportsbook and we talked about this yesterday. It seems like a theme here when it comes to the city of las vegas. Now i'm not gonna use some of the vulgar language. That was texted by steve. Kerr on the broadcast professional. But there's a theme here in which people maybe a little don't i don't wanna say they don't have the guts but they wanna make sure that they don't get burnt here and that theme we talked about yesterday says when it came to aaron rodgers and the adjustment on the season win total. And what you do with the green bay packers. it wasn't. They were scared that they were going that he was going to walk away and retire. The theme with nevada. Here and with the city of las vegas is that they wanna make sure if they don't know exactly what's happening that they're going to cover themselves and so we saw this play out with aaron rodgers situation in green bay exactly right. They've got jelly in the belly. The real scared they don't ever want to get hit with a few bets when somebody knows more than they know so. They're better off batting zero in their minds than bat. Five hundred better. Any any kind of uncertainty paul. The game off. Don't let pull the team off. Don't let anyone wager on it and that way come monday morning. I don't have to meet with the vice president of operations and explain why i took in eight thousand dollars. An action on or against the green bay packers. Because i was in the bathroom and my backup wasn't doing his job. Either and five guys all bet on or against the packers right after woche tweeted information on them and so when it comes to the green bay packers as we transition here straight out of vegas on fox. Sports radio jonas. Steve has with the here on fsr. We've now had a little over twenty four hours to sort of marinate. The piping that aaron rodgers gave the entire organization at his press conference yesterday. And so now that we've seen that rogers is going to be back and now that we we have an idea of what we're looking at when it comes to the green bay packers from the quarterback position. It does make you wonder say none of this happened. Say there was a and there's a report out that aaron rodgers thought that there was a trade that was going to take place earlier in the offseason or say he did decide. He wanted to sit out until he got his way and he was not going to report all that being said without aaron rodgers. How much drastically different does this team look like. Moving forward this upcoming season without aaron rodgers. The packers are the twenty ninth best team in my numbers in the nfl. They are still better than houston. Detroit and the god. Awful new york jets okay so they would be the fourth worst team in the league now. Who would you put right right. Above twenty-eight if without aaron rodgers and jordan love is your quarterback the twenty eighth ranked team according to see fezzet. Kazoo the jacksonville. Jaguars think about that thing. That is a franchise who has swimming pools in their stadium. They play some games in london. They just tired urban meyer. Who had to get rid of a strength coach. A less than twenty four hours after he was hired because it was a mistake. They brought in tim tebow to play tight end and they've got a rookie at quarterback who had surgery in the off season and that team would be considered better than the green bay packers without aaron rodgers. That's what we're saying here. Yeah and the jacksonville. Jaguars discussing whether they're going to allow full capacity in a covert year this year for crowds. I gotta ask you jonas. I've never seen a focus passively jacksonville jaguars come on. How could you that is. That is totally insulting. You know we mentioned a few minutes ago. Andy firm and fox sports radio host and locally in cincinnati said the cincinnati bengals invented social distancing years ago stadium. So unless i'm not here to to partaking you bullying the jacksonville. Jaguars andy furman bullying the cincinnati bengals. And you being angle fan. You should take an insult to that. Says it's tough to win the jungle when we're good jonas. The problem is we haven't been good since one thousand nine hundred eighty. Tell us that you should. You should have appreciated. We had him. You didn't do it now. you lose him all right. You know you learned a lesson. They're fez all right. So it is straight outta vegas here on fox. Sports radio steve jones knocks in for rj. Bell coming up next. We do have some news out of the world of football some interesting news accusations to go along with it. We'll have that for you next here on episode short catch live editions of straight outta vegas weekdays at six. Pm eastern three pm. Pacific straight outta vegas here on fox sports radio. What the hell is that smell of either. All it's that cubs dynasty going up in flames. What a joke. What a joke trying to tell everybody all these people these fan boys. Oh by god how many this is just one of. So many my ass there was one and done. For the chicago cubs now rizzo's gone fire sale underway at wrigley field steven. Yeah cubs over under season. Seventy nine and a half so the sharp betters were well aware that the cubs or already big time on the decline. I think they lost ten in a row. this year. Eerily similar jonas. You're too young for this. But the cubs had a great team back in one thousand nine hundred three made. The playoffs lost to san diego. The next year cubs lost thirteen in a row sutcliffe went down early to an injury and they were never the same for generations. How do you remember that. Like what are we three. Okay i understand. But like ask me to remember something when i was twenty years old jonasson charging rhino sandberg. The sarge gerry matthews leading off. You know icu. Look i was raised to cub fan. Let me tell you. I've heard all about all those great cubs fan cubs teams. I heard about the late sixties. I heard about two teams in the eighties and that was pretty much it. And then you got to twenty sixteen and everybody thought this was going to be a foregone conclusion dynasty moving forward jody. Jody davis hit one out to my bud light. Yeah i remember damon. berryhill was another guy chicago. come from back in the day. I remember damon berryhill all the all the legendary cubs teams at one like sixty five games. But we move on from a diaper fire in major league. Baseball to to a situation college football. This has been the worst kept secret. Everybody expected this and it was reported earlier. the fourteen. Sec presidents did unanimously vote to invite texas and oklahoma to join the conference. So steve fezzet. This comes just a day after the big twelve mates accusations against espn espn was trying to do damage to the conference. Trying to get the american athletic conference to come out and steal three to five teams from the big twelve. So it's a bad situation of the big twelve but the sec. Looks like it's going to get a couple of new guests here in the coming years. Yeah and the big twelve had problems for years most specifically the really the big one that oklahoma is just completely dominated this conference and in fact if you look at the conference title odds this year oklahoma minus one eighty versus the field iowa state is. They're up this year. But that won't continue going forward. I will states around three to one texas eight to one. Sa- texas has the reputation and the recruiting. And the ratings. Oklahoma has the one elite team. And you look at the rest of this big twelve. Jonas and it is just not ready for primetime. This conference had major problems. Even before the oklahoma texas likely defection he notes. I want to ask you about this because we've talked about this before the texas hype train. Every year is crazy to me like they are the most one of the most talked about hyped up love teams. They got a great fan base. All of that. So people love texas football and i don't get it. It seems like every year we have the same conversation they lose a game early. And it's like oh my god. This wasn't what we expected and then a couple of years later. They fire a head coach because he got to get somebody else in there. They're paying off three different coaches contracts. 'cause they think they finally found the next guy there one of those teams right when it comes and we've talked about this before to where there are these popular fan bases that really bet their teams. We just talked about the cubs the cubs would have been one of them to where people would bet to win the world series for years and years because if it happens to look like genius we've talked about teams like that in the nfl. The cowboys being one of people. Love the dallas cowboys. But they haven't won anything since the mid nineties is texas. That team for college football. I think so and i think that the national title win against usc one of the greatest college football teams ever really hyped them moving forward and you nailed it if you're the cubs or texas and you win a national championship and your program or your team. Just isn't that good. All of a sudden you can become fade material for years. I would like nothing. Better than the perennially overrated notre dame irish to take home the national title so we could make money betting against these underachievers for the next ten years all right. So so steve with that being said now that we look at the big twelve and now that we see just just sort of the landscape of things and and what. This conference could look like moving forward. What is you've identified a team. That doesn't belong. Correct you guys have done some research and you decided you know why. Be nice on today show you know. Why would we want to be nice and you know. Be a decent people on today's show. So you've identified a team that doesn't belong in the big twelve. Please explain west. virginia. Yes i get it. From power ratings perspective there are perfectly good addition to the big twelve but the problem is geographically. It makes no sense. I get conferences were expanding. Hey the big ten went ahead. And took rutgers and maryland. Well the big ten already at penn state and now they have several teams in the east. Poor west. virginia is sitting by itself. Think about the disservice to the athletes. The travel if you're a mountaineer to have to go and travel over nine hundred miles to each and every game this team does not belong in your conference and hopefully this'll be with the big twelve shakeup. West virginia can get in a conference. They belong in fact. We did a little research mckenzie. You identified the big twelve team closest to west. Virginia what is it iowa. State clean nine hundred seventeen miles as the crow flies. I look. i'm not expecting you to pull out your rand. Mcnally here mackenzie. But i just kept by the way for those of you. That was a map company back in the day. Just letting people little rand mcnally drop here on the show. I'm not expecting you to pull out a map. You got it at whiskey. Pete's on your drive through state line to get back into into the city of las vegas mackenzie but what is the nearest team next to hawaii. Because i feel like hawaii has been having to wear this issue when it comes to travel for a long time. And might i add. We are officially less than a month away from hawaii at the rose bowl against ucla. So i just want to know where. Where does hawaii rank when it comes to most travel team. They gotta be number one well. Of course. I don't have to look that up at any kind of atlas. I mean that's just something you know in the back of your pocket honolulu to san diego. Of course san diego state being the closest it's twenty six hundred miles away from. It's unbelievable that that is unbelievable. Here's this is what i'll say says when it comes to expansion of college football i get the regional aspect of all this it pains me that maryland's in the big ten because growing up i just always associate maryland with the acc. That's just it's like syracuse is in the acc when you were watching the big east tournament back in the day. It was always syracuse. Georgetown was all of like. That's what i remember growing up and that's a- nebraska nebraska's pretty close there in the midwest. But i still look in nebraska. And i go big twelve. What comes to these other conferences pulling from other parts of the country. I think they do that a lot of times. Just to be able to survive to bring another part of the country to their conference from the from the standpoint of if you just rely on what you have regionally to be able to recruit. Most places aren't going to survive. I mean the south will the west will the of texas will the upper midwest will. But there's all these other places in college football that it doesn't make as much sense again you're gonna wear it a little bit when it comes to the travel but if you wanna bring some of the some of the talent rich over to your conference you gotta go outside the box and you got bring in some of these other schools well ultimately you should think about the kids as well and if we look no further vegas defines. How west virginia has done performance. Wise since they joined the big twelve mackenzie research here going back to when they joined the big twelve in two thousand twelve and football west virginia forty seven sixty four. that's just under forty four percent against the spread. Don't tell me that all those frequent flyer miles have not impacted the mountaineers. Yeah it's great here and some guys. Say i think about the kids when he waits for an injury during a game end. Yeah but but wait. Think about the kids. Fez as as you know dak prescott leg almost falls off at you jump to your computer to live bet. Whoever douses playing in that game. How if i don't do it someone else. Well john source. That is that is your. There's your go-to ida straight out of vegas here on fox. Sports radio up next best.

"vegas" Discussed on Straight Outta Vegas with RJ Bell

"Simpler terms. Vegas isn't allowing you the ability to get as many bets in on this and quite frankly they haven't allowed you to be able to get a bed in on this because it is it is basically predetermined and we all feel like we know the the the order. The picture going to be coming up later on correct. That is true. Not just in vegas but everywhere but you bring up vegas. Thank you and i gotta throw nevada under the bus here. Because there is the most archaic horrible rule i've ever heard when it comes to draft betting nfl nba in the state of nevada. You cannot wage her on any of this.

That's a new operator in nevada to suddenly get crushed by the betters so we just won't allow anyone to bet on anything for twenty four hours prior to the draft and here's what so dumb about that all right because and this is what makes betting on the super bowl great because the set limits so because so what they do is and tell me if i'm wrong fez because i know this from just looking at some online sports books that i've seen before to where you can bet on these pets you can bet on color of the gatorade length the national anthem coin flip etc etc etc. You can get down on all of those from anywhere in the country but there's a limit that you can bet on them so that way they're not losing is so if there's information that comes in that somebody knows something you're not going to get as burn because they've set a maximum amount that you can bet on this and so therefore you're not going to take them for everything they've got because you've got sort of insider information on how long the national anthem is going to be and you bet on the over and so if you're if you're vegas why don't you start doing that like why don't you set limits on this stuff. Why would you turn away business when you've got an opportunity with people in town. Think they know a thing or two. Hey i can win twenty five bucks fifty bucks on who goes number one in the nfl draft with the nba draft. Don't cut him off. Twenty four hours ahead of time like set a limit in those in the next twenty four hours. So that way you can still get some action and therefore you people don't feel like they're getting duped by the sports books the entire town yes spot on and in fact to quote one sportsbook and their policies the win. Let's me bet they're very cordial. But when i bet on the app oftentimes i'm limited to two hundred dollars while you know what it's still spends two hundred dollars a nice dinner if i'm at home and i'm a thirty four minute ride to get to win out just put in the two hundred dollar. Bet if they have the very best number. But boom i'm flagged by counts flagged. I make the bet. The wind can say fezzes on the over here. We'll go ahead and move this. Appoint based upon a small bet because they know more often than not that winds going to continue to move. They profile the players. They take the winning players. They used the information. Adjust their lines. That's the optimal way to run a sportsbook and we talked about this yesterday. It seems like a theme here when it comes to the city of las vegas. Now i'm not gonna use some of the vulgar language. That was texted by steve. Kerr on the broadcast professional. But there's a theme here in which people maybe a little don't i don't wanna say they don't have the guts but they wanna make sure that they don't get burnt here and that theme we talked about yesterday says when it came to aaron rodgers and the adjustment on the season win total. And what you do with the green bay packers. it wasn't. They were scared that they were going that he was going to walk away and retire. The theme with nevada. Here and with the city of las vegas is that they wanna make sure if they don't know exactly what's happening that they're going to cover themselves and so we saw this play out with aaron rodgers situation in green bay exactly right. They've got jelly in the belly. The real scared they don't ever want to get hit with a few bets when somebody knows more than they know so. They're better off batting zero in their minds than bat. Five hundred better. Any any kind of uncertainty paul. The game off. Don't let pull the team off. Don't let anyone wager on it and that way come monday morning. I don't have to meet with the vice president of operations and explain why i took in eight thousand dollars. An action on or against the green bay packers. Because i was in the bathroom and my backup wasn't doing his job. Either and five guys all bet on or against the packers right after woche tweeted information on them and so when it comes to the green bay packers as we transition here straight out of vegas on fox. Sports radio jonas. Steve has with the here on fsr. We've now had a little over twenty four hours to sort of marinate. The piping that aaron rodgers gave the entire organization at his press conference yesterday. And so now that we've seen that rogers is going to be back and now that we we have an idea of what we're looking at when it comes to the green bay packers from the quarterback position. It does make you wonder say none of this happened. Say there was a and there's a report out that aaron rodgers thought that there was a trade that was going to take place earlier in the offseason or say he did decide. He wanted to sit out until he got his way and he was not going to report all that being said without aaron rodgers. How much drastically different does this team look like. Moving forward this upcoming season without aaron rodgers. The packers are the twenty ninth best team in my numbers in the nfl. They are still better than houston. Detroit and the god. Awful new york jets okay so they would be the fourth worst team in the league now. Who would you put right right. Above twenty-eight if without aaron rodgers and jordan love is your quarterback the twenty eighth ranked team according to see fezzet. Kazoo the jacksonville. Jaguars think about that thing. That is a franchise who has swimming pools in their stadium. They play some games in london. They just tired urban meyer. Who had to get rid of a strength coach. A less than twenty four hours after he was hired because it was a mistake. They brought in tim tebow to play tight end and they've got a rookie at quarterback who had surgery in the off season and that team would be considered better than the green bay packers without aaron rodgers. That's what we're saying here. Yeah and the jacksonville. Jaguars discussing whether they're going to allow full capacity in a covert year this year for crowds. I gotta ask you jonas. I've never seen a focus passively jacksonville jaguars come on. How could you that is. That is totally insulting. You know we mentioned a few minutes ago. Andy firm and fox sports radio host and locally in cincinnati said the cincinnati bengals invented social distancing years ago stadium. So unless i'm not here to to partaking you bullying the jacksonville. Jaguars andy furman bullying the cincinnati bengals. And you being angle fan. You should take an insult to that. Says it's tough to win the jungle when we're good jonas. The problem is we haven't been good since one thousand nine hundred eighty. Tell us that you should. You should have appreciated. We had him. You didn't do it now. you lose him all right. You know you learned a lesson. They're fez all right. So it is straight outta vegas here on fox. Sports radio steve jones knocks in for rj. Bell coming up next. We do have some news out of the world of football some interesting news accusations to go along with it. We'll have that for you next here on episode short catch live editions of straight outta vegas weekdays at six. Pm eastern three pm. Pacific straight outta vegas here on fox sports radio. What the hell is that smell of either. All it's that cubs dynasty going up in flames. What a joke. What a joke trying to tell everybody all these people these fan boys. Oh by god how many this is just one of. So many my ass there was one and done. For the chicago cubs now rizzo's gone fire sale underway at wrigley field steven. Yeah cubs over under season. Seventy nine and a half so the sharp betters were well aware that the cubs or already big time on the decline. I think they lost ten in a row. this year. Eerily similar jonas. You're too young for this. But the cubs had a great team back in one thousand nine hundred three made. The playoffs lost to san diego. The next year cubs lost thirteen in a row sutcliffe went down early to an injury and they were never the same for generations. How do you remember that. Like what are we three. Okay i understand. But like ask me to remember something when i was twenty years old jonasson charging rhino sandberg. The sarge gerry matthews leading off. You know icu. Look i was raised to cub fan. Let me tell you. I've heard all about all those great cubs fan cubs teams. I heard about the late sixties. I heard about two teams in the eighties and that was pretty much it. And then you got to twenty sixteen and everybody thought this was going to be a foregone conclusion dynasty moving forward jody. Jody davis hit one out to my bud light. Yeah i remember damon. berryhill was another guy chicago. come from back in the day. I remember damon berryhill all the all the legendary cubs teams at one like sixty five games. But we move on from a diaper fire in major league. Baseball to to a situation college football. This has been the worst kept secret. Everybody expected this and it was reported earlier. the fourteen. Sec presidents did unanimously vote to invite texas and oklahoma to join the conference. So steve fezzet. This comes just a day after the big twelve mates accusations against espn espn was trying to do damage to the conference. Trying to get the american athletic conference to come out and steal three to five teams from the big twelve. So it's a bad situation of the big twelve but the sec. Looks like it's going to get a couple of new guests here in the coming years. Yeah and the big twelve had problems for years most specifically the really the big one that oklahoma is just completely dominated this conference and in fact if you look at the conference title odds this year oklahoma minus one eighty versus the field iowa state is. They're up this year. But that won't continue going forward. I will states around three to one texas eight to one. Sa- texas has the reputation and the recruiting. And the ratings. Oklahoma has the one elite team. And you look at the rest of this big twelve. Jonas and it is just not ready for primetime. This conference had major problems. Even before the oklahoma texas likely defection he notes. I want to ask you about this because we've talked about this before the texas hype train. Every year is crazy to me like they are the most one of the most talked about hyped up love teams. They got a great fan base. All of that. So people love texas football and i don't get it. It seems like every year we have the same conversation they lose a game early. And it's like oh my god. This wasn't what we expected and then a couple of years later. They fire a head coach because he got to get somebody else in there. They're paying off three different coaches contracts. 'cause they think they finally found the next guy there one of those teams right when it comes and we've talked about this before to where there are these popular fan bases that really bet their teams. We just talked about the cubs the cubs would have been one of them to where people would bet to win the world series for years and years because if it happens to look like genius we've talked about teams like that in the nfl. The cowboys being one of people. Love the dallas cowboys. But they haven't won anything since the mid nineties is texas. That team for college football. I think so and i think that the national title win against usc one of the greatest college football teams ever really hyped them moving forward and you nailed it if you're the cubs or texas and you win a national championship and your program or your team. Just isn't that good. All of a sudden you can become fade material for years. I would like nothing. Better than the perennially overrated notre dame irish to take home the national title so we could make money betting against these underachievers for the next ten years all right. So so steve with that being said now that we look at the big twelve and now that we see just just sort of the landscape of things and and what. This conference could look like moving forward. What is you've identified a team. That doesn't belong. Correct you guys have done some research and you decided you know why. Be nice on today show you know. Why would we want to be nice and you know. Be a decent people on today's show. So you've identified a team that doesn't belong in the big twelve. Please explain west. virginia. Yes i get it. From power ratings perspective there are perfectly good addition to the big twelve but the problem is geographically. It makes no sense. I get conferences were expanding. Hey the big ten went ahead. And took rutgers and maryland. Well the big ten already at penn state and now they have several teams in the east. Poor west. virginia is sitting by itself. Think about the disservice to the athletes. The travel if you're a mountaineer to have to go and travel over nine hundred miles to each and every game this team does not belong in your conference and hopefully this'll be with the big twelve shakeup. West virginia can get in a conference. They belong in fact. We did a little research mckenzie. You identified the big twelve team closest to west. Virginia what is it iowa. State clean nine hundred seventeen miles as the crow flies. I look. i'm not expecting you to pull out your rand. Mcnally here mackenzie. But i just kept by the way for those of you. That was a map company back in the day. Just letting people little rand mcnally drop here on the show. I'm not expecting you to pull out a map. You got it at whiskey. Pete's on your drive through state line to get back into into the city of las vegas mackenzie but what is the nearest team next to hawaii. Because i feel like hawaii has been having to wear this issue when it comes to travel for a long time. And might i add. We are officially less than a month away from hawaii at the rose bowl against ucla. So i just want to know where. Where does hawaii rank when it comes to most travel team. They gotta be number one well. Of course. I don't have to look that up at any kind of atlas. I mean that's just something you know in the back of your pocket honolulu to san diego. Of course san diego state being the closest it's twenty six hundred miles away from. It's unbelievable that that is unbelievable. Here's this is what i'll say says when it comes to expansion of college football i get the regional aspect of all this it pains me that maryland's in the big ten because growing up i just always associate maryland with the acc. That's just it's like syracuse is in the acc when you were watching the big east tournament back in the day. It was always syracuse. Georgetown was all of like. That's what i remember growing up and that's a- nebraska nebraska's pretty close there in the midwest. But i still look in nebraska. And i go big twelve. What comes to these other conferences pulling from other parts of the country. I think they do that a lot of times. Just to be able to survive to bring another part of the country to their conference from the from the standpoint of if you just rely on what you have regionally to be able to recruit. Most places aren't going to survive. I mean the south will the west will the of texas will the upper midwest will. But there's all these other places in college football that it doesn't make as much sense again you're gonna wear it a little bit when it comes to the travel but if you wanna bring some of the some of the talent rich over to your conference you gotta go outside the box and you got bring in some of these other schools well ultimately you should think about the kids as well and if we look no further vegas defines. How west virginia has done performance. Wise since they joined the big twelve mackenzie research here going back to when they joined the big twelve in two thousand twelve and football west virginia forty seven sixty four. that's just under forty four percent against the spread. Don't tell me that all those frequent flyer miles have not impacted the mountaineers. Yeah it's great here and some guys. Say i think about the kids when he waits for an injury during a game end. Yeah but but wait. Think about the kids. Fez as as you know dak prescott leg almost falls off at you jump to your computer to live bet. Whoever douses playing in that game. How if i don't do it someone else. Well john source. That is that is your. There's your go-to ida straight out of vegas here on fox. Sports radio up next best.

We're the one state that had a monopoly on sports betting and now fast forward to two thousand twenty one if i wanna bet on the draft and where guys are going to go where scotty barnes. If he's going to go number five. I can bet on a new jersey and some other states. But i cannot bet on it in las vegas makes no sense.

That's a new operator in nevada to suddenly get crushed by the betters so we just won't allow anyone to bet on anything for twenty four hours prior to the draft and here's what so dumb about that all right because and this is what makes betting on the super bowl great because the set limits so because so what they do is and tell me if i'm wrong fez because i know this from just looking at some online sports books that i've seen before to where you can bet on these pets you can bet on color of the gatorade length the national anthem coin flip etc etc etc. You can get down on all of those from anywhere in the country but there's a limit that you can bet on them so that way they're not losing is so if there's information that comes in that somebody knows something you're not going to get as burn because they've set a maximum amount that you can bet on this and so therefore you're not going to take them for everything they've got because you've got sort of insider information on how long the national anthem is going to be and you bet on the over and so if you're if you're vegas why don't you start doing that like why don't you set limits on this stuff.

I think so and i think that the national title win against usc one of the greatest college football teams ever really hyped them moving forward and you nailed it if you're the cubs or texas and you win a national championship and your program or your team. Just isn't that good. All of a sudden you can become fade material for years. I would like nothing. Better than the perennially overrated notre dame irish to take home the national title so we could make money betting against these underachievers for the next ten years all right. So so steve with that being said now that we look at the big twelve and now that we see just just sort of the landscape of things and and what. This conference could look like moving forward. What is you've identified a team. That doesn't belong. Correct you guys have done some research and you decided you know why. Be nice on today show you know. Why would we want to be nice and you know. Be a decent people on today's show. So you've identified a team that doesn't belong in the big twelve. Please explain west. virginia. Yes i get it. From power ratings perspective there are perfectly good addition to the big twelve but the problem is geographically. It makes no sense. I get conferences were expanding. Hey the big ten went ahead. And took rutgers and maryland. Well the big ten already at penn state and now they have several teams in the east. Poor west. virginia is sitting by itself. Think about the disservice to the athletes. The travel if you're a mountaineer to have to go and travel over nine hundred miles to each and every game this team does not belong in your conference and hopefully this'll be with the big twelve shakeup. West virginia can get in a conference. They belong in fact. We did a little research mckenzie. You identified the big twelve team closest to west. Virginia what is it iowa. State clean nine hundred seventeen miles as the crow flies. I look. i'm not expecting you to pull out your rand. Mcnally here mackenzie. But i just kept by the way for those of you. That was a map company back in the day. Just letting people little rand mcnally drop here on the show. I'm not expecting you to pull out a map. You got it at whiskey. Pete's on your drive through state line to get back into into the city of las vegas mackenzie but what is the nearest team next to hawaii. Because i feel like hawaii has been having to wear this issue when it comes to travel for a long time. And might i add. We are officially less than a month away from hawaii at the rose bowl against ucla. So i just want to know where. Where does hawaii rank when it comes to most travel team. They gotta be number one well. Of course. I don't have to look that up at any kind of atlas. I mean that's just something you know in the back of your pocket honolulu to san diego. Of course san diego state being the closest it's twenty six hundred miles away from. It's unbelievable that that is unbelievable. Here's this is what i'll say says when it comes to expansion of college football i get the regional aspect of all this it pains me that maryland's in the big ten because growing up i just always associate maryland with the acc. That's just it's like syracuse is in the acc when you were watching the big east tournament back in the day. It was always syracuse. Georgetown was all of like. That's what i remember growing up and that's a- nebraska nebraska's pretty close there in the midwest. But i still look in nebraska. And i go big twelve. What comes to these other conferences pulling from other parts of the country. I think they do that a lot of times. Just to be able to survive to bring another part of the country to their conference from the from the standpoint of if you just rely on what you have regionally to be able to recruit. Most places aren't going to survive. I mean the south will the west will the of texas will the upper midwest will. But there's all these other places in college football that it doesn't make as much sense again you're gonna wear it a little bit when it comes to the travel but if you wanna bring some of the some of the talent rich over to your conference you gotta go outside the box and you got bring in some of these other schools well ultimately you should think about the kids as well and if we look no further vegas defines. How west virginia has done performance. Wise since they joined the big twelve mackenzie research here going back to when they joined the big twelve in two thousand twelve and football west virginia forty seven sixty four. that's just under forty four percent against the spread. Don't tell me that all those frequent flyer miles have not impacted the mountaineers. Yeah it's great here and some guys. Say i think about the kids when he waits for an injury during a game end. Yeah but but wait. Think about the kids. Fez as as you know dak prescott leg almost falls off at you jump to your computer to live bet. Whoever douses playing in that game.

"vegas" Discussed on Straight Outta Vegas with RJ Bell

"Would they limit the opportunity for people to bet on the like 'cause here. Here's my question for you so basically big picture so people understand this in simpler terms. Vegas isn't allowing you the ability to get as many bets in on this and quite frankly they haven't allowed you to be able to get a bed in on this because it is it is basically predetermined and we all feel like we know the the the order. The picture going to be coming up later on correct. That is true. Not just in vegas but everywhere but you bring up vegas. Thank you and i gotta throw nevada under the bus here. Because there is the most archaic horrible rule i've ever heard when it comes to draft betting nfl nba in the state of nevada. You cannot wage her on any of this. Jonas twenty four hours prior to the draft they force every sportsbook to take all of the odds off. So think about this. We're the one state that had a monopoly on sports betting and now fast forward to two thousand twenty one if i wanna bet on the draft and where guys are going to go where scotty barnes. If he's going to go number five. I can bet on a new jersey and some other states. But i cannot bet on it in las vegas makes no sense. That's crazy and there's also another aspect of this which i think a applies to if you're listening to this right now there's another angle on this. That applies to you that. There's nobody else that can give you the warning and the info and the tip you need to go ahead and make sure you don't fall victim to what they're trying to pull their in nevada up next.

In just a couple of moments from now there is a sneaky. Little game being played in the city of las vegas and we will get to the bottom of that tips things for you to avoid When it comes to this gambling world in this sick and twisted universe that we all live in. So we'll have that for you coming up in just a couple of minutes from now but it is a tradition. Unlike any other right now we must get the weather from these strip in las vegas. And this man who live outside the autograph table that pete rose is currently sitting at at the forum shops caesar's palace steven pheasant are fill in meteorologist. What is the weather like there on the strip. Yes so it's one hundred five degrees right now in vegas jonas and the neon. It's blinking by the way. Just pete rose still sit at the forum shops and sign autographs. Because that was the thing for a long time right every day. Mad i pete many times walking through and he has a phenomenal memory game. Four where he gets into or game three when he got into the fight with buddy harrelson and the seventy three. And but just you can. You can talk to him and he has a photographic memory of various games. They asked him how. Come when you're running on the basis you are always like holding your helmet down so wouldn't fall off. Didn't that slow you down. And he looked at me. Like i was from mars. Yeah well it's probably because he had His betting tickets wanted to make sure that you don't wanna get busted in his career. You wanted to wait until he was a manager. Fez yeah andy. Firm and fox sports radio legend cincinnati. Sports radio legend. He impede or friends and some of the stories that was. That was a wild time. I go onto the track betting on the ponies. Some of the bad bt suffered all of that snow. It's a pete rose man. I'm i'm pete rose fan. I what he did wrong but at some point you know you just gotta you gotta forgive people and get them into the hall of fame. I think says hey forty four game hitting streak number two an nfl. All time hits leader and the inventor as far as i can tell of the headfirst slide. Yeah and so with that being said now. We must dive headfirst into this topic of conversation in the city of las vegas here because look we want to help people out. Don't fall victim to this and as you were talking about before. We went to break the situation with the nba draft. How because things are predetermined basically. We all know who the who's going to be taken. Wear that not only sports books elsewhere but also las vegas pull these lines right to where you can't even get any action on this for how long up until the nba draft so in nevada. The nevada gaming board twenty four hours prior to the nba and nfl draft day require the sports books to no longer take bets on the draft. And jonas i almost look at this. Who is this protecting. Is this to protect the better for making bad bets. No not at all. This is one hundred percents of nevada's saying look we know. We got some operators that may not be so used to this draft bedding and they're gonna get burned woes is gonna text what player certain teams going to take and they're going to be caught with their pants down so we have to protect our children our casinos we don't want resorts world or someone else. That's a new operator in nevada to suddenly get crushed by the betters so we just won't allow anyone to bet on anything for twenty four hours prior to the draft and here's what so dumb about that all right because and this is what makes betting on the super bowl great because the set limits so because so what they do is and tell me if i'm wrong fez because i know this from just looking at some online sports books that i've seen before to where you can bet on these pets you can bet on color of the gatorade length the national anthem coin flip etc etc etc. You can get down on all of those from anywhere in the country but there's a limit that you can bet on them so that way they're not losing is so if there's information that comes in that somebody knows something you're not going to get as burn because they've set a maximum amount that you can bet on this and so therefore you're not going to take them for everything they've got because you've got sort of insider information on how long the national anthem is going to be and you bet on the over and so if you're if you're vegas why don't you start doing that like why don't you set limits on this stuff. Why would you turn away business when you've got an opportunity with people in town. Think they know a thing or two. Hey i can win twenty five bucks fifty bucks on who goes number one in the nfl draft with the nba draft. Don't cut him off. Twenty four hours ahead of time like set a limit in those in the next twenty four hours. So that way you can still get some action and therefore you people don't feel like they're getting duped by the sports books the entire town yes spot on and in fact to quote one sportsbook and their policies the win. Let's me bet they're very cordial. But when i bet on the app oftentimes i'm limited to two hundred dollars while you know what it's still spends two hundred dollars a nice dinner if i'm at home and i'm a thirty four minute ride to get to win out just put in the two hundred dollar. Bet if they have the very best number. But boom i'm flagged by counts flagged. I make the bet. The wind can say fezzes on the over here. We'll go ahead and move this. Appoint based upon a small bet because they know more often than not that winds going to continue to move. They profile the players. They take the winning players. They used the information. Adjust their lines. That's the optimal way to run a sportsbook and we talked about this yesterday. It seems like a theme here when it comes to the city of las vegas. Now i'm not gonna use some of the vulgar language. That was texted by steve. Kerr on the broadcast professional. But there's a theme here in which people maybe a little don't i don't wanna say they don't have the guts but they wanna make sure that they don't get burnt here and that theme we talked about yesterday says when it came to aaron rodgers and the adjustment on the season win total. And what you do with the green bay packers. it wasn't. They were scared that they were going that he was going to walk away and retire. The theme with nevada. Here and with the city of las vegas is that they wanna make sure if they don't know exactly what's happening that they're going to cover themselves and so we saw this play out with aaron rodgers situation in green bay exactly right. They've got jelly in the belly. The real scared they don't ever want to get hit with a few bets when somebody knows more than they know so. They're better off batting zero in their minds than bat. Five hundred better. Any any kind of uncertainty paul. The game off. Don't let pull the team off. Don't let anyone wager on it and that way come monday morning. I don't have to meet with the vice president of operations and explain why i took in eight thousand dollars. An action on or against the green bay packers. Because i was in the bathroom and my backup wasn't doing his job. Either and five guys all bet on or against the packers right after woche tweeted information on them and so when it comes to the green bay packers as we transition here straight out of vegas on fox. Sports radio jonas. Steve has with the here on fsr. We've now had a little over twenty four hours to sort of marinate. The piping that aaron rodgers gave the entire organization at his press conference yesterday. And so now that we've seen that rogers is going to be back and now that we we have an idea of what we're looking at when it comes to the green bay packers from the quarterback position. It does make you wonder say none of this happened. Say there was a and there's a report out that aaron rodgers thought that there was a trade that was going to take place earlier in the offseason or say he did decide. He wanted to sit out until he got his way and he was not going to report all that being said without aaron rodgers. How much drastically different does this team look like. Moving forward this upcoming season without aaron rodgers. The packers are the twenty ninth best team in my numbers in the nfl. They are still better than houston. Detroit and the god. Awful new york jets okay so they would be the fourth worst team in the league now. Who would you put right right. Above twenty-eight if without aaron rodgers and jordan love is your quarterback the twenty eighth ranked team according to see fezzet. Kazoo the jacksonville. Jaguars think about that thing. That is a franchise who has swimming pools in their stadium. They play some games in london. They just tired urban meyer. Who had to get rid of a strength coach. A less than twenty four hours after he was hired because it was a mistake. They brought in tim tebow to play tight end and they've got a rookie at quarterback who had surgery in the off season and that team would be considered better than the green bay packers without aaron rodgers. That's what we're saying here. Yeah and the jacksonville. Jaguars discussing whether they're going to allow full capacity in a covert year this year for crowds. I gotta ask you jonas. I've never seen a focus passively jacksonville jaguars come on. How could you that is. That is totally insulting. You know we mentioned a few minutes ago. Andy firm and fox sports radio host and locally in cincinnati said the cincinnati bengals invented social distancing years ago stadium. So unless i'm not here to to partaking you bullying the jacksonville. Jaguars andy furman bullying the cincinnati bengals. And you being angle fan. You should take an insult to that. Says it's tough to win the jungle when we're good jonas. The problem is we haven't been good since one thousand nine hundred eighty. Tell us that you should. You should have appreciated. We had him. You didn't do it now. you lose him all right. You know you learned a lesson. They're fez all right. So it is straight outta vegas here on fox. Sports radio steve jones knocks in for rj. Bell coming up next. We do have some news out of the world of football some interesting news accusations to go along with it. We'll have that for you next here on episode short catch live editions of straight outta vegas weekdays at six. Pm eastern three pm. Pacific straight outta vegas here on fox sports radio. What the hell is that smell of either. All it's that cubs dynasty going up in flames. What a joke. What a joke trying to tell everybody all these people these fan boys. Oh by god how many this is just one of. So many my ass there was one and done. For the chicago cubs now rizzo's gone fire sale underway at wrigley field steven. Yeah cubs over under season. Seventy nine and a half so the sharp betters were well aware that the cubs or already big time on the decline. I think they lost ten in a row. this year. Eerily similar jonas. You're too young for this. But the cubs had a great team back in one thousand nine hundred three made. The playoffs lost to san diego. The next year cubs lost thirteen in a row sutcliffe went down early to an injury and they were never the same for generations. How do you remember that. Like what are we three. Okay i understand. But like ask me to remember something when i was twenty years old jonasson charging rhino sandberg. The sarge gerry matthews leading off. You know icu. Look i was raised to cub fan. Let me tell you. I've heard all about all those great cubs fan cubs teams. I heard about the late sixties. I heard about two teams in the eighties and that was pretty much it. And then you got to twenty sixteen and everybody thought this was going to be a foregone conclusion dynasty moving forward jody. Jody davis hit one out to my bud light. Yeah i remember damon. berryhill was another guy chicago. come from back in the day. I remember damon berryhill all the all the legendary cubs teams at one like sixty five games. But we move on from a diaper fire in major league. Baseball to to a situation college football. This has been the worst kept secret. Everybody expected this and it was reported earlier. the fourteen. Sec presidents did unanimously vote to invite texas and oklahoma to join the conference. So steve fezzet. This comes just a day after the big twelve mates accusations against espn espn was trying to do damage to the conference. Trying to get the american athletic conference to come out and steal three to five teams from the big twelve. So it's a bad situation of the big twelve but the sec. Looks like it's going to get a couple of new guests here in the coming years. Yeah and the big twelve had problems for years most specifically the really the big one that oklahoma is just completely dominated this conference and in fact if you look at the conference title odds this year oklahoma minus one eighty versus the field iowa state is. They're up this year. But that won't continue going forward. I will states around three to one texas eight to one. Sa- texas has the reputation and the recruiting. And the ratings. Oklahoma has the one elite team. And you look at the rest of this big twelve. Jonas and it is just not ready for primetime. This conference had major problems. Even before the oklahoma texas likely defection he notes. I want to ask you about this because we've talked about this before the texas hype train. Every year is crazy to me like they are the most one of the most talked about hyped up love teams. They got a great fan base. All of that. So people love texas football and i don't get it. It seems like every year we have the same conversation they lose a game early. And it's like oh my god. This wasn't what we expected and then a couple of years later. They fire a head coach because he got to get somebody else in there. They're paying off three different coaches contracts. 'cause they think they finally found the next guy there one of those teams right when it comes and we've talked about this before to where there are these popular fan bases that really bet their teams. We just talked about the cubs the cubs would have been one of them to where people would bet to win the world series for years and years because if it happens to look like genius we've talked about teams like that in the nfl. The cowboys being one of people. Love the dallas cowboys. But they haven't won anything since the mid nineties is texas. That team for college football. I think so and i think that the national title win against usc one of the greatest college football teams ever really hyped them moving forward and you nailed it if you're the cubs or texas and you win a national championship and your program or your team. Just isn't that good. All of a sudden you can become fade material for years. I would like nothing. Better than the perennially overrated notre dame irish to take home the national title so we could make money betting against these underachievers for the next ten years all right. So so steve with that being said now that we look at the big twelve and now that we see just just sort of the landscape of things and and what. This conference could look like moving forward. What is you've identified a team. That doesn't belong. Correct you guys have done some research and you decided you know why. Be nice on today show you know. Why would we want to be nice and you know. Be a decent people on today's show. So you've identified a team that doesn't belong in the big twelve. Please explain west. virginia. Yes i get it. From power ratings perspective there are perfectly good addition to the big twelve but the problem is geographically. It makes no sense. I get conferences were expanding. Hey the big ten went ahead. And took rutgers and maryland. Well the big ten already at penn state and now they have several teams in the east. Poor west. virginia is sitting by itself. Think about the disservice to the athletes.

That was a map company back in the day. Just letting people little rand mcnally drop here on the show. I'm not expecting you to pull out a map. You got it at whiskey.

"The hoopla maybe made him nervous initially but once the energy they got settled down in the energy from that crowd. Is it a coincidence that the second quarter was by far the best quarter. I don't think so so in a way you could look at that and say well game four is not going to have the same advantages for that must win team. That you know are li- are playoff. Lives are on the line but if we take out the second quarter and look at eight and specifically he's actually plus five so his plus minus which is if he's on the floor. How does the team do so. Eight plus mine is was minus six. So you're going to say okay. Even with him on the floor they lost i. So what's the big deal but if you take away that second quarter in which eight and was minus eleven. He was plus five in the other. Three quarters on the court so to me. This is a little bit of cherry picking. But you say take away that down to wo- gained three advantage. The milwaukee had and assume eight on the floor. You know the other times other than that advantage was at its peak and still phoenix was fine. Which makes the point that eight on the floor. This is a very competitive series if not phoenix beam. A slight favor not favored as in to win the series. Because they're clearly the favorite to win the series because they're up to one doesn't matter if they were the lesser team. It would have to be by a big degree. But i'm saying if this series were starting over. And i knew eight and was going to be on the floor for forty two minutes. I think phoenix is the favor by smidge. I'm not sure if i'm right. But i think that if he's off the floor it's a catastrophe and part of that is phoenix. Didn't get a good backup center. Part of it is the injuries but right now is i test question to you. When aden's dot on the floor it seems like phoenix is a really inferior team. Be sure to catch.

Way doesn't mean a lot and there could be the only other team i could think of recently was toronto but i i think toronto had a better roster without glide tronto one sixty games. The i mean this team. Is this a playoff team without jaanus. I don't i mean if they are they're not above seven. Yeah i mean mackenzie. What's your thoughts. I mean you got some wacky ideas but you take if you take off this team. Is this a playoff team. Milwaukee i do think so they beat trae list atlanta hawks pretty soundly so you have two teams that have a guy at the top and otherwise. We're we just speculating. How bad that very land team would be without trae young and you thought even in and to be it was very optimistic. You said like twenty two in the league right yeah and if you dominate the twenty two best team in the league especially in the east you only have to be the seventeenth. Eighteenth claims yes. I'm not saying they're going to be a fifth seed but make the playoffs barely. In my opinion. I and so. Is it an interesting the debate it now. You think about the boobs team without michael well. We know that went to some degree records. They made the conference finals. The next year When he was playing baseball. So i now lebron's teams that want it now. That's interesting because would kyri in that team be better. I kind of think so but you know the point. Is that the fact we can have this conversation. And it not be clear is town you.

"Gonna give His players a break. They put in a lot of great work This off season The majority of players were out there.

"I to say to people. Look i i always say. Are you going to advocate game city question rating. Because everyone wants to regain. It'd be nearby i also say Seizes paddock's gun state the bellagio. If that's what you wanna do that's gonna make your special also you're gonna pay it. You'll get your time you're paying to stay somewhere like bally's let's say it's probably not that much more expensive to stay seizes in times value for money. Yeah we gang via money. So i i love people from the uk stats caliber or lonzo. Because that's what the big travel companies that tend to push. I'm talking two weeks as not meeting. Somebody gets would kill me. Plus i'm gambler. And i say to people showed the chips that you don't expect roll to thin etc etc etc but avoid those places locks source. Nice i would say that. Done the rims up nicely but its way out of the way for a fast trip. Yes you want to be staying. Sent a strip possible. I think that would be my top tip. Sent to strip somewhere like harrah's ti meraj rogers. Really nice property rooms are outdated but for amenities a nice pool. Gripe lights i. I'm right there with you on the the whole idea the luxor. I've stayed at locks numerous times and always have a great day and a good experience. And and i've. I've stayed in pyramid rooms and tower rooms and i've had the newly renovated rooms and they're great But when my wife. And i did the couple's trip with our friends. It was their first time down vegas and that was the one thing i was a little disappointed about for them was the distance. We had to go for everything. I much rather would have been able to stay or preferred to stay at bally's flamingo Somewhere center strip that again would be more accessible to and same deal for first timer for sure. It's the same as the people that i'll see that'd be like oh well i see a really good deal at the sahara. It's my first time too vague. Do not do no don't do that. I mean it's it's cheap pepper. Nice hotel but note. I know you're a million miles from everywhere. Yeah i'm a massive mandalay bay fan. I've had some really nice trips. That i have a great relationship with a host that that s good fun for me. Because i've been to vegas multiple multiple times many many times. Would i wanna stay fest. Climate monae is really nice. If monterey was in the middle of the strip it would be super expensive covered enough. but it's wrong price. Cajun occasionally case indication. Yeah i wanna talk about. You are in the process of writing a book. Yes which is very very cool. It's kinda crazy. Yeah i mean it's one of these things. I think everybody has said and i. I'll admit i've said. I should write a book. Never even remotely have d. I opened microsoft word. And i look at that. That cursor blinking at me taunting leeann. I'm like f. forget it. i'm onto youtube. I go but you've actually you're you're you're doing it so tell us about this book that you're doing about las vegas while i am writing a book. That is kind of like an alternative travel guide meets memoir about my experience las vegas and how i liked vegas and how i think people should do vegas. It's is from a british perspective but it doesn't mean it's only fabrizio kind of i think has quite wide appeal. And by the way i would describe it is. This is how you avoid making one of those mistakes. I made on my first trip. And it's kind of gives you some advice on more than just the hotel stuff. It has that in that. So lord the height. I took about hightower's i've just been writing about casino royale which has been like you talk about looking at blank page and then the cancer i was i. Am i going to say about. How am i gonna write this about it. Sounding like i'm just crapping on about all of these of these properties. But i've also talked about okay. How do you maximize your calls. Which place cups best How how do you play Blackjack how do you pay crap. So gambling gods in that. I'm talking about how could host like john. How d do vegas on the budget. Wet wet wet. Should you go in vegas off the beaten track I'm just trying to think what else in that. Best restaurants visit own levels How to maximize your experience. I guess it's midday. The overall gist a book and who knows it could go horribly wrong. But it's eighty five percent written is going to be printed happens. Eighty five percent written. It's a little too late to turn back now. Yeah actually i. The reason i said writing is because i couldn't get it vegas and it was the middle lockdown. I think what i'm just gonna. Rightness is going to be fun. I'm no. I'm never gonna publish app. It's going to write it. And then i thought you know what this caps on the unit Actually going well. I've voice thousand leads into this now. It's not like i'm gonna surely. I'm not gonna fail at the last hurdle but it's very much informal written from a the point of view if i'm writing about mirage. I'm telling you. I think of miraj right. You know. i'm not telling you what the puppet of the his saturday night miraj. I'm going to tell you. I'm raunch right. I like that. You're doing it like that to to kind of set it. Apart from all of the other travel guides that are out there which tend to be pretty neutral pretty fact based. I think it's interesting to throw some opinion into something like this. Yeah and there's nothing that has the gambling stuff that's one thing babb as you know you can go and pick up your vegas travel guide that we tell you this property. It's here and then this is here. This is the show you there and this is what you can eat this. Yeah this has But it also has the house maximize comes. Should you be looking to have a conversation with the casino is. Should you be playing if you've got this budget. United all of that stops in that tape. So it's kind of like a gambler's guide is while i guess very cool and as far as timelines are we looking at a Spring release a summer release. What are what are you hoping for. But yeah i'm hoping this spring i mean okay so i've been writing. I feel like. I've been writing for the now about street properties and i'm working. I started a mandalay bay. Said this is. This is going to be like. I saw laid-back. i'm now casino round venetian. So i'm nearly that getting mad. But i probably got two seconds. I'm gang back and that. I going to do downtown. And then the book was finished. Most of the other stuff's done. I kind of left to loss because this is the slog gang through these pages. But it's it's it's kind of odd because like anyone is going to be honest. Said some vegas. I love and the assam. I'm mike ni. I really hate him. That i loved them. The ones i love. It's so easy to writes about. Sheriff i during the page. It sounds pretty. Flowery at all three to say that. I'm not by the way so. This really is a very challenging. So it'd be gay but then you come to right okay. What my going to say about casino royale. What and you spend about three hours trying to write the short section of your whereas the mirage. It's like bang out in about ten minutes. There's like fifty pages on. I can't do that. i've got to cut it down i. It's very specific book. It's i'm not going through and saying okay. Yeah you should eat at mcdonalds on this riot because that one's better than not one. I'm fixing on k. one. I really liked the mystery least. Three restaurants and branch. Say this is why i would. There's these runs but these my top room sustained in this property. This is why would stay all you know that is that is these the wants to say..

"With friends or buddies. Always say why. Say life for me. Yeah i I go to vegas site because a it's not. My wife's price will go away from a couple of weeks somewhere. Nice in france whatever. It's not bag absolutely fine. I will. I will make out with people once. I'm that Say for instance if michael who hosts damsel cost. He may come and meet me for a few days while i have friends outlive. I know the the the dot with. But i tend to go on my i quite like it that way because if i wanna be down the casino at three am. I can be if. I wanna to have breakfast at like seven at night. I can do that. I quite liked it. The senate trips. And i'm also very british and i'm like why you sitting next to me when there's always a machine why you chose this one next to me. Go me these kinds of restrictions. Going to be great because no one can come to me. That's that's what i said with all this. it's like i'm already kind of antisocial and not that of people so this is this is possibly the greatest thing in the world. That's happened to major. Have you ever been to the i. Yes i have been on the london underground. Yup because nobody likes each other and nobody makes eye contact. You just have to sit there and excellent mix. It speaks team. You look at them like why. why why. why are you talking to me. Which is very different to what you experience you guys some light vegas in the end the. Us people are very friendly and they wanted to tear took to me. Yeah i mean. But i i completely get the allure of the solo trip. I've done all of the various Variations on the vegas trip. I've done the trip with friends. I've done the trip with my spouse i've done couple's trip But of all of them. I i love the solo trip as you say you are You don't have to be responsible to another human being. You can basically do whatever you want. And the great thing is vegas is somewhat To be on your rights Fill out place getting into a fine dining establishment and being on your right now if you want to buy you can but if you want to say a table in your opposite find I also think that they set up for that kind of every kind of travel every fact. Yeah it's just it's just it works as a site trigger really well. Something i always enjoy hearing about from the various bloggers and bloggers and podcasters. That i've had on is the very first vegas trip. They did and the mistakes they made and what they would do differently if they could go back and do it all over again. I'd love to hear about your very first vegas trip. Yes mine is particularly so of kern. Yeah i definitely made mistakes. I am. I told this story about six months ago. Gee when i'd stop the things. Oh costs might fast. Property state at was treasure island basalt too bad Think treasure items a great place to save. If you're a fast lineup it gets. It's ready to be good value because bear in mind. If you're you're not getting called brims south so that's how the equation. It's a great location for exploring vegas site happy days so that's not too bad. It's not like i stayed as cosatu's don't even ads. i say my. I stayed at ti. I guess the mistake. I made is i. Did all my gambling sees so you know and i booked through expedia. I didn't book the hotel i did. The whole expedia flight Traveling clearly kind of thing so i maximize my potential come value. I guess and i guess that's the advice i try and get people now is they. Think about what you're playing if you're going to gamble you might as well gamble where you're staying because you may even if you get result feed bumped off at the end. Yeah that kind of thing. So i made with as so some of mistakes. What had a great trip. And i do the vegas bug so crazy. Wasn't that big a deal. I actually. I actually came home up my best trick. I i time. I you know i wanna go too much into back row. But i didn't have the bank i have now and i wasn't gambling now. I pay my trip at thala video poker terrible pay table as well because this is like. Nc's as i have no idea. I hit the day before. I come home. Which basically put me right backup on the trip so it was a great trip. Yeah what are yours. yeah. I've i've told this story on other podcasts. That have appeared on My first trip was two thousand and three It was my wife. And i it was our first ever big quote unquote big vacation together as a married couple that didn't involve traveling to go see family or or anything like that We stayed at circus circus because it was cheap. And i'm pretty sure that the travel agent we book through got a really good commission. We made all the typical first-timer mistakes that we paid full price for things. We booked our show tickets ahead of time and probably paid way too much for all of them. But that's what you would normally do if you go anywhere else because that's how you normally would get a good deal. Vegas is different. And that's why i tried to tell people And that and i think that's kind of the same advice that i give people now too. I love the tip about telling people to to figure out where they think they're going to gamble the most. Because as you say if you if you gamble where you're staying or at least in the same chain you might as well if you're gonna gamble anyway you might as well exactly exactly and then i also to tell. People don't state circus circus. Because it's even worse now in that at least when i stayed there in two thousand three there was still I think the stardust was still there and the frontier were still there and so there were still hotels between Circus circus and fashion show mall as opposed to now where that side of the road. There is nothing listen many great properties. Now as well in the center of the strip that you could. I'd always tell glued i said. Ti harris is great one now. They've renovated or that rooms rooms. Ice what did they seize properties around there really quite good match today And and.

"A natural fit robin the tree literally. I mean all they would have to do is swap out the The movie memorabilia from planet. Hollywood for the music memorabilia From hard rock I've also heard that. The cosmo a has been on hard rock's radar for a while as well and i think that that would actually be a really cool fit. It's got a very Very interesting almost rock and roll vibe already. In the property tried bad seasons aflaid battles as well which will be interesting because some see connected to paris. Hey yes how how does that. How is that going to end up. Yeah i think we probably will see some movement. Particularly now caesar's have so many properties across the us unites i. It's hard to say because the prominent oil dream has been around for ages as loud. It's kind of right up there with the rumor about the rio getting torn down and turned into a baseball stadium. Right exactly exactly. There are a couple of big openings. That are supposed to happen this year as well resorts world and virgin hotels. Those are two big ones that are supposed to be opening of course resorts world is a a brand new bill. That's been going on for ever and a day and has finally reaching that point where hey it looks like a real hotel and virgin of courses the rebrand and the and the renovation of hard rock virgins already push their opening once i think twice actually now that they've pushed their opening yet remember. April isn't that because that's when hotel bookings some yeah and i'm just curious if you think that they'll they'll push that out any further and same deal with resorts world i mean is resorts world going to open in the middle of a global pandemic with visitor. Ship cut in half. Yeah i kinda showed results while may may go this far as being pushed us a time maybe even december time that cease to be like if you back his history. That seems to be seen as of late. October into december Summer that identity. That's going to happen now. I think it will definitely be late in that And i think with virgin. I think we'll see that pushed again too. I just didn't think the the climates right now. Yeah they find at once high. See them again. That's me and probably quite lay on probably need like much time. They come out and say that we're gonna postponed to august. I just think. I think we're just gonna see rolling sports. I think they're gonna keep doing it until they fill. The time is right. Now have this year. I think it's twenty twenty two but you also have to wonder too with resorts world because they were focusing very heavily on Their asian clientele and with travel issues around the world. I have to be honest. I do not see That travel ban getting lifted anytime in twenty twenty one at least not ninety until the fall at the earliest. You also have to wonder if they're going to take that into consideration and look at that and go jeez like. How do we handle this opening. Yeah i would like to say. I think october for results will be my guess. And i'm gonna say august virgin but while we rock. I wanted to talk a little bit about circa as well. yes mavin. i obviously haven't been because it's open light since this whole thing started. We just kinda crazy in itself a hotel during a pandemic right. It can be done at least on paper. It can be done absolutely no question that it can be done on paper. But i have to question exactly how much of the perceived success is real and how much of it is just Social media bias right I mean i know. They are billed as a seven hundred. Seventy seven room hotel resort I think they only opened about half of those hotels. The other thing is well is for being a downtown hotel on fremont street. The prices that they want to charge to stay there are again this just my opinion my own personal opinion and thoughts. I think the prices are absolutely obscene. Way too high. I see how it sustainable those prices are gonna come down. It's not sustainable. And i know this is something that people said to me while they're brand new. It's the shiny new toy on the block. And i get that but that can only get you so far right i mean. I picked a random three nights. Stay sunday to wednesday in the middle of february. I mean there's no conventions or events or anything like that happening. I picked a random three nights day and the prices at circa for their standard king room which didn't look like anything special from what i've seen video and photos and stuff was actually higher than what the win or the venetian wanted for the same dates. Which in my mind is just insane. Yeah why would you. Why would you go to stay if you can stand the win for less money or even the same money in fact even a little bit more money exactly and i mean i'll freely admit that i'm not a massive fan of downtown. I mean i enjoy going down there for a bite to eat or cheap beverage or some people watching in any of my friends who are locals. That's where they like to go because it's away from the strip in its away from all the tourists but in my mind to be paying the same amount of money to stay at a hotel on fremont street that i would be paying to stay at a legit five star five diamond hotel on the strip while a guy downstairs is wearing the borat swimsuit and posing for pictures with tourists. That does absolutely nothing for me where what's his an interesting question. Where would you place secca if it was on the strip. What would you equate it to in terms of the strip level property. Say for instance. Would you say it's on the level of nutso which you said it's on the level of mirage or would you say it's on the level of the win camelias nominee moved the win. I'm angry but it's not very few properties are the where would you place it again. Having not been there like yourself. It's kind of in a weird situation. It's hard to say. I feel like it's slightly above bally's maybe sort of mirage ish. If that makes sense yeah i would probably say that's right. Maybe maybe mandalay bay so of level of property. Yeah so then. You have to ask yourself okay. What would you pay for that and then would you pay that downtown. Because you normally would say well downtown. So i'm not gonna pay a mandalay. Bay level writes down. Found her right. Yeah i thought for me. Cause i be honest Abramson vegas right by gamble for him. So i don't know what Honestly gonna sound awful very much stuck up. And i don't know what you pay for rent out when i do. I do because. I've been researching it but the book but i i wouldn't be at italian random wednesday in february while the price be right. Well i mean as a as a non. I'm not a big gambler by any means. I i'm a slot guy and i will sit and drop a few hundred bucks into a slot machine and that's kind of the extent of my gambling but last two years ago i bought my way into diamond was caesar's so.

"In the uk differently. Ya and we've had that here in canada's while i mean there have been people who've been calling for some sort of national approach to a lot of this stuff whether it's masking her occupancy requirement sir closures or or things like that but of course the situation you run into is It's bad in one part of the country or or but not so much in another part even when you break it down to a provincial level. I mean here in our province in alberta Back in the spring they tried a regional restrictions where the southern half of the province had different restrictions from the northern half and it just turned into a situation where people from From the south. We're going up to the north for hair cuts and and stuff like that so it really kind of went sideways on them. So i can. I can understand where where that approach may not work for everyone. So i guess the next obvious question then is what do you think it's gonna take to actually get people back traveling. I mean we moving forward on vaccinations. We've got masks a even if they were to open up borders tomorrow and start allowing flights and allowing people to travel. There's going to be that certain percentage of people who still say you know what not so much right now. What do you think it's going to take to get those people back to vegas. I think it's going to take just to be honest. Going gonna take a long time. And i think numbers are going to be gone for a long time and we just going to have to accept that and i think the travel industry is gonna have to accept that. I think we're going to see a lot ness At a pre pri. This you could fly pretty much anywhere. I would say we're more or less from the uk. And i think we're gonna see less of that. Then we're going to see more of a fight kiss on vice specific routes i think leisure routes navy or actually going to recover faster than business travel rates. Because i think actually this provincial people that you can have a meeting through the internet. You don't have to travel. Think it for me as a european. Nothing you're gonna see a retentive show much quicker than you will long host. I think people they see from the uk sat in the gonna be more looking to travel to europe greece spain those holiday destinations bake with uk. People will we get back to vegas this year. I say. I think the may i try. Not you probably need they. Some play therapy fundamental. It's on just trying to be really positive. Because i've been about you but here the uk everything. All the news is negative but negatively cells. Right these papers want people to buy newspapers anyway. But say i'm hopeful we've got a good vaccine program seemingly running I haven't been vaccinated yet. I hope i will be at some point in the next three or four months. I would i be willing to travel about vaccine. I don i. Right now. I i honestly i would make that decision. Perhaps a week two weeks of travel. Here's the thing you're going to have to make those decisions last minute. You can plan now. I think you have to say for me. I would just keep moving my flight. Until i get and i will make a decision a week before whether i'm going to go on almost and that's kind of odd thinking because for me is ten out flight right and in wigs of way. This is the most flexible we've ever have traveled. Be in airline policy. You can do that right now. isn't impossible question Already if i have the vaccine. If i had the vaccine i think i would yeah. I'm kind of in the same boat. I mean i looked at back at the end of november just before things were starting to ramp back up again as far as numbers and shutdowns and restrictions and such and because i've always for the last six years or five years i guess Have done a vegas trip for my birthday in december. I put together a whole plan of how i thought i could do vegas safely and i ran a pass. My wife who's healthcare professional. And i had a whole thing for masks and hand sanitizers and staying away from people and all this kind of stuff and she looked at it went. This is a lovely plan. Jeff but let me remind you. You don't even like going to the grocery store. How're you going to leave the house and take two airplanes and airports and hotels and people and restaurants and all of that kind of stuff. How're you going to physically deal with that. And i just kind of went. Yeah you know what you're right. This is the other thing isn't it and actually it's interesting. You bring that up. Because no matter how much i won't travel i think about my family too. I have a baby at home. If my wife said to be i really on the comes with this and i wouldn't say that's another thing to consider with this whole of pandemic situation is kind of not just about what you want you to think about the people around you. Do you have outerly relatives irregularly. Say does that ponente risk if he would travel. I don i feel better with the testing but then everyone's looking at different tests. Yeah if you can do a rapid test to get insights Sixty percent effective is that right or should you. Everyone be doing these. Pcr tests the Because you on the other hand at the argument while some testing the no testing site. It's it's a minefield right now on. I just start identity. Anyone knows this is why. We're in the situation room because governments that night and i here in the uk it's utan off the utah with policy. I don't know what it's like that it's just changing all the time. By the time we time stays out with appropriate changes again exactly exactly and that's a fair point and that's something. I get the frustration on on that level of the constant changing of of policies. But at the same time it's that it's that constant we don't know from one day to the next how this is going to How this is going to evolve how this virus is going to change if there's going to be all of the sudden there's a canadian variant of the strain in canada shows up on everybody's hitlist you.

"vegas" Discussed on The Jeff Does Vegas Podcast

"Finally i want to address a couple of questions that i've been seeing coming up pretty consistently and the thing is. They're not really questions that i or anybody can answer. But i'm more than willing to share my opinions. I people are constantly asking. Is vegas going to be shut down again. Truthfully i have no idea and neither does anyone else and anybody who says they do know for sure that vegas is it or is going to be shut down again is lying to you as i mentioned off the top of this episode. The one thing that this whole pandemic experiences taught us is that everything can change in the blink of an eye the very first shutdown back in march of two thousand twenty came with just twenty four hours notice and was originally planned to last just thirty days. It ended up lasting almost eighty days. What we're living through right now is literally unprecedented. And what's happening is completely out of our control so again nobody can say with any certainty that las vegas will or won't shut down again. The only piece of advice i can give here is be prepared to be flexible with your plants. Keep an eye on the las vegas news join various vegas related facebook groups and just be aware of what's happening in las vegas and the world in general if the stories you're seeing or showing things trending in a bad direction. Be ready for some potential changes to your vacation. Whether that's a change in hotel closure of your favorite restaurant or even a total cancellation of your trip now. This somewhat goes hand in hand with another really big question. I see being asked frequently. And that is should. I be going to vegas right now. Will i actually enjoy myself again. This isn't really something anybody can answer for you. But please indulge me. While i share my thoughts personally. I believe that. If this is going to be your first ever trip to las vegas you should postpone until things are back to normal or at least a little bit closer to normal with all the restrictions and closures going on. You're not gonna get anything even remotely close to the vegas experience. I can't but think you're going to end up incredibly disappointed. Vegas just isn't vegas right now and it's not going anywhere. It's still going to be there six months a year or even two years from now. However if like me your regular visitor to vegas you can probably go and find ways to keep yourself entertain but and this is a big but be prepared for things to be very different than what you're used to and again be prepared.
