"Of a possible energy emergency and called for conservation of power for a few hours due to slightly warmer than expected weather. Except the problem is Kut is most Michelle reported for the Texas newsroom collaboration of public radio stations this week may have been the fact that coal, gas and nuclear power generators were offline all at once. Rice University environmental engineering professor Dan Cohen says U. S Energy Information Administration data showed one of the states for nuclear reactors was down. About 40% of coal capacity down, but that the majority of insufficient power capacity was from gas power plants. Why, well, it could be her cut just allowed too many power plants to go off line for routine repairs. At the same time, ERCOT warned of tight grid conditions again Wednesday but did not make any calls to conserve, Cohen says he shudders to think what things would be like if we were actually having a heat wave. This week, stresses on our power grid. Raise questions again about ERCOT. And whether we're ready for the sort of electricity demand this summer will bring. Is this good? Bad or ugly? Wayne Ashley starts off. Wow. Well, you know, that is such an incredible set of near circumstances. Ultimately, I think, actually, this was Not only good but very good in that a. They didn't have to make any power sacrifices in this time, unlike what we all witnessed in February and having you know, over 100. People die because we weren't prepared at that time. I think that's a very good warning shot because it's important to keep the pressure going. Because we're in the middle of legislative right now, that's really heating up in Austin heating up, however, you want to take that. But it's true and for our lawmakers that are getting so bogged down with so many other things. I think it was a really important reminder that hey, you can't forget about what happened in February and how close we got toe complete disaster in our state. So you all better get in gear and and actually really work to fix this problem, I think is much pressures we can put on the Legislature to actually solve these issues. The better. David random On this one. It's bad and the reason why Spanish because this is a story, Theo only reason why this is the story is because of what happened during the freeze. There was a trust. There's a level of trust that we had. With the power grid, and now that trust is gone, and when we hear that we're very close to not having power in a very comfortable temperature. People are going Oh, no. What's going to happen during the summer? When our temperature gets up to 105, and their explanation makes all makes perfect sense. We've just come out of freeze. We have power plants that need some repair. We're shutting things down to do that. This is a great time do that, And it makes complete sense. But the trust is gone. And the fact that the trust is gone is what causes us to worry, and we don't know for sure that what they say is true that when they say Okay, we're just fixing things. It'll be okay. We're preparing for the summer. We don't know that. What's going to happen this summer is going to be another disaster. And that's why this is bad. I do agree with wave that this is good is that we're looking at this and we're keeping the heat on so to speak, so that we can make sure that we don't have the same problems we have before. That's what it's gonna take. We're gonna have the public eye on this. So I encouraged the public to keep their eye on this. All right, good, bad or ugly. Amber Ambrose and I'm tourney because I love the optimism of Wayne's comment in that. It's good. That crisis was averted. And I'm definitely with David on the loss of trust. There's no I mean, there's no question about that haircut was definitely the villain of Texas Quarter One way had covert all of last year for like the whole world, so I guess we're rallying around hatred of or this case. I guess this may be a better word of her cot, Texas at least So maybe I'm somewhere down the middle. I think it's bad. It's neither good nor evil. Amber, you mentioned er cod as sort of being maybe cast as the villain, is it About that non profit, which manages the grid, sort of the traffic cops if you will, or is it all the different pieces of that grid for whom anyone entity can say? Well, it's not my responsibility to do X. That's up to entity. Why, and ended the wisest. Well, that's not my responsibility. You should really talk. Tonto agencies. E is that maybe the bigger issue here? Yes. I think that's a better way of stating it. It's like passing the buck instead of being like We really need to get this together because we're just gonna get hotter. Winters are potentially going to get colder. Extreme weather is going to you know, it's like mood swings. And we need our former Prozac to get back on track in the form of power credit, Okay, That was probably a bad example. But it was a very strange metaphor. But if you want to extend it as far as you want God, That's when it really matches your Now I think I think it is a lack of cohesion. I think it's a really easy thing to blame one entity for political gain. Is there a way we can be like, Hey, we really like refrigeration. We like air conditioning. We love when it's cold outside to have heat. There's gotta be a way for more people to talk to each other. And, like, you know, they do it in the innovation world all the time. They'll have these What is the hackathon have a problem or something, And I'll put all these people and it's like this crazy 24 hour thing. And the goal of the Hackathon is for them to come up with a solution or a knack for a code for solving some problem. Could there be a hackathon for the power grid in Texas? Game of fire. I don't know. Make it fun. Give somebody a prize, given sentence for people like work together on it because there's a lot of steak, I would say. In fairness, this this weather event was very unusual. Not being prepared for it fully. I can understand. Work for water production for many years here in the city, Houston, We don't bury our mains deep into the ground so that we will avoid water lost during heavy freezes. It's just not cost effective. They have to Go down there fix those Mays when they're very deep when you could have them closer to the surface, and we rarely have really extreme temperatures. We had that use you here, too, along with the electricity, So there's gonna be some economic sense in this. You have to make sure that you're not going overboard. Well, David, I agree mostly with what you said. And I obviously Understand that it was a rare event, air quotes But you know you don't have to tell Houstonians about how rare events happened because before 2015 When we had kind of the first of Ah, litany of floods, the 2015, you know, flood that happened in Houston was what was it a 500 year event or 100 Year event or something like that? So we have 100 years, But we'll just say, 100 years in 2015 for flooding, And then in 2016. We had another 100 years of that, and then I think it was in 2017. We had The millennial event. Harvey, you know, so it's like we have to understand, just like with our with our flooding situations that were living through his Houstonians these.

"A lot can happen in a week. Some of it good some of it bad some of it's downright ugly when faced with intriguing developments. The week's news we turn to a rotating panel of experts to parse the good the bad and the ugly of it all on today's panel. Amber ambrose co founder and ceo of ambrose mcdowell communications david brand professor of political science and chair of social sciences at uh downtown and wayne ashley editor of texas leftist dot com and host of the aggressive voices. Podcast amber david wayne. Welcome to houston matters. Panel while president biden noted. In wednesday's inauguration speech that has called for unity might sound a bit like a foolish fantasy. He might have expected that fantasy to last at least through the afternoon. But the new president drew some ire from texas. Gop lawmakers over initial plan executive orders cancelling the keystone excel pipeline permit and rejoining the paris. Climate agreement congressman. Kevin brady called the executive orders. An opening shot on texas energy workers. Senator john cornyn said the president's answer to the suffering the pandemic's caused is to quote kick the industry further down the well while those reactions were based on policy differences texas attorney general. Ken paxton was less specific. And more forward thinking promising to quote fight against the illegal actions that the new administration will take while some lawmakers pushed back moves. The new administration's making a paxton's criticizing actions not yet taken. Is this good bad or ugly. Amber empress start us off I think it's great. It is so refreshing to have this kind of discourse again. I truly think that paxton as sort of her that he didn't get pardon is trusting like he was posturing up to that leading up to this point so he's just like length yet. You guys are gonna do. Things are gonna be illegal. I'm going to have zero evidence who i mean. There's nothing new there anyways. It's kind of great like we've broke up with abusive workman newly moved out. Were all running on criticism. Have any policies only nine. I think we all are like knowing are substances a fantasy world. I think it's great not as what we're walk right. It's not on spiracy. Theorin people taking arms and militia against their own government. Man at all right is a good bad or ugly. David brenham is symbolic polticians. Doesn't it saucer ugly. it's ugly. This is typical politics for the new president to come up and say i'm here to unify a represented anybody who didn't support me and then walk in the door to fifteen executive orders to go directly against the forty seven percent. Who just voted against you. That's really kind of lip service on unifying the country. I don't think it really has any attention of it. So we got back to politics as usual within very short time. There's an executive order that threatens the economy of texas in many people's eyes and so what happened was that you gotta reaction in dan reaction create news and it. Yes it's it's good back and forth. That's the way politics is in this country or never gonna be unified system. Is setup where we're going to have to parties even if one party replaces another we're still gonna Too so let's just get used to this or not going to be unified until something really truly matters. It comes along the means that we're going to get unified and in that case. I think that we actually will all right. Good better ugly ashley. I have to say. I think just took the words out of my mouth. I mean i thought it was not only good. I almost i almost found it exciting In the good way that we that we it felt like home to hear texas officials arguing over something as routine as energy. All see i i. I have to say as a as a boring political analyst person. It felt rather thrilling to be back back on farm on terra firma as it were And so i welcomed it. I thought it was. I thought it was lovely and wonderful and too many of david's points. We're going to have our disagreements and that's great. Let's let's have disagreements over like things that matter to our futures as opposed to threatening the actual society that we already have so so. I'm a fan of that on. I was. I was here for it as they say. So amber and wayne are saying yay politics as usual and david saying darn politics as usual. Yeah pretty much. But i have to go along with the other the other colleagues on my panel that every much appreciate the political violence was not a part of this interaction. That it's time for that to go away indeed panel houston police chief artas vado wednesday shared something we did not know about president biden that took place here in houston during the campaign. The night of democratic presidential debate at texas southern university on september twelfth of two thousand. Nineteen a houston. Police officer was shot by a suspect about a mile away from that debate. Three days later biden called us to check on the officer and arranged a visit. The man in the hospital with no media present to simply quote lift his spirits at the officers urging shared photos of the visit on twitter wednesday to quote illustrate. The decency of the new president. President biden gets props from houston's police chief for meeting with an injured officer and not telling anyone about it even in the midst of a political campaign. Is this good bad or ugly. David starts off. This is good. There's nothing bad about this man in the middle of a presidential campaign who took the time out of his campaign to go in me. Somebody who is indeed. I really liked I love celebrities. Who actually take the time in. Took care of people live people's hearts if they can so this is one of those times and it wasn't publicized until after he became president. I'm not sure how much he had to do with that. But i think he you know he was in agreement that this doesn't need to be part of my campaign this just something that i do for this police officer who put his life on the lying in of duty so i commend president by this all right way nationally. I think it's it's beyond good. It's just phenomenal. But it's also a testament to so much of what we know about President binds character. I mean he you know for well over four years. He's been saying guy and you know these. These types of stories are very much apart of of how he is and i. I do believe that it's a reason that so many people in the united states felt that they wanted to vote for him. You know over five point. Two million votes in the state of texas more than any has ever received you know even if he didn't win the state but he's he's just a person that has an incredible sense of empathy and someone that really does Want to connect to people in as many ways as possible. And we we see that it shines through On the television screen when he's when he's speaking and and it's just a real tenet.

"Voices. Podcast amber david wayne. Welcome to houston matters. Well good morning. Crag thank you. Craig dowd craig panel houston mayor sylvester turner would prefer not to but is not ruling out the possibility of a citywide curfew to slow the spread of the coronavirus. He told reporters monday. That a curfew quote is a nuclear option. And if we have to go there. I will go there. The comments came as the city reached. One hundred thousand known cases of covid. nineteen harris. County is a whole also crossed the two hundred thousand mark and is the first county in texas to do so mayor. Turner considers a curfew to halt covid a nuclear option. But one he will not rule out. Is this good bad or ugly. Ambrose i actually really appreciate mayor. Turner considering a curfew as a nuclear option. I think that it's really hard for people to do the right thing. Because they're tired. Of course you know. The right thing is so subjective. I also understand that so some people believe what's right is the opposite of what other people believe is right so there's so many just grey areas here but what does not great is that when people certain people get this virus they die and that's the end of it. I mean if a curfew is what helps us mentally like some boundaries to help people that don't have the capacity to kind of dig deep and think about like oh me being out here could unintentionally kill three people. Then bring the curfew. Bring it on short term. Sacrifice long-term gain long-term game being people's lives. all right. is it good bad or ugly brand. This is bad is ever good when it comes to cova. There just isn't a good solution on this. I have to say that. I agree with the mayor that the curfew is an extreme option. We see over and over again that not everyone has the same perspective on the importance of covert nineteen prevention for some of us especially the older among us. Prevention is the most important thing but for those people facing economic hardship due to covid nineteen. I understand their frustration with the government shutting down their businesses or mandating. A curfew for them. It is a nuclear option to have a curfew so while some people believe drastic. Measure like a curfew will save us others feel like it's going to destroy us for them and join life requires that they have the freedom to make a living in feed their family and have a roof over their head. They believe that they should have the right to take that risk. If they want to. So i understand. Both sides of this okay is a good better ugly wayne ashley truly ugly. An unprecedented situation all the way around thankfully though i don't currently have covid as someone. There's already been very seriously ill this month and still struggling with that. I just cannot stress enough the fact that this all has to come down to our healthcare workers in our healthcare system. Yes it will be difficult and terrible if moore. Turner has to use the nuclear option. But that's up to what we do. It's up to what happens with our healthcare system because whatever happens we cannot allow our healthcare workers to suffer and we cannot allow our system to fail so from that end. We have to do whatever we have to curfews shutdowns. We have to protect our healthcare workers. They're the ones that are fighting on the front lines. And it's their call panel the twenty twenty one houston livestock show and rodeo is on. Maybe the rodeo announced this week it's pushing back most events from its usual march schedule until may pending covid nineteen health conditions those conditions include of course distribution of covid vaccines state. Health officials said monday. Those corona virus. Vaccinations would be phased in and widespread distribution might not begin until july rodeo president and ceo chris bowman tells keijo you quote what we're really doing is buying time to see where we are and what the world is going to look like bowman says if by may the rodeo can't go forward as planned it would likely be cancelled instead of being pushed back further. The houston rodeo announces plan dates two months before state. Health officials anticipate widespread distribution of covid. Vaccines can begin. Is this good bad or ugly. David brenham okay on this. I'm giving the houston livestock showing rodeo of good. It appears to me that they're doing everything they can to keep from losing the rodeo second year in a row and i i personally am really rooting for them. I really can't criticize them for giving it to try i know they're scheduling two to four months before projections say that things will be safe but it appears that there just isn't a better option for them. I believe that if they feel that things are unsafe that they will cancel again. They were one of the first to be responsible last year. At the beginning of over one thousand nine hundred and call off their event. I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt that they will do the right thing. If circumstances make an impossible to put on event in a safe manner. So i give them a good. I hope the best for them. And i give him the benefit of the doubt that they will do the right thing if need be all right. Good better ugly amber. I think that the houston radio announcing the dates is good especially with the quote that you just read to us as the fact that they're buying time and they're gonna see what things are like at that point in time. I am not a psychic or a fortune teller or a scientists. I don't think it's going to be Likely during that time line. But i know how extremely important it is to the city into just a lot of people in that rodeo ecosystem so i understand why they would want to at least try and set a date but it sounds like they're being very measured and smart and i really appreciate that approach and hopefully if it doesn't happen in twenty twenty one will be all wearing boots and cowboy hats and heading out to the rodeo and twenty twenty two and appreciating it. Big time okay. Good gli win in this. I think it's good that they're at least trying to plan for something. I mean the houston livestock show and rodeos our biggest event. The city's biggest event the entire region of southeast texas or as i'd like to rename it. The blacks our entire regions biggest event. And so i think showing leadership in that regard like the houston livestock show and rodeo is doing is a great thing and yet it's possible maybe we won't be at the target that we would need to be at in may and they do have to cancel or postpone things further but at least they're kinda showing some leadership and stepping out there and saying okay. Let's plan for good time. Let's plan for a rodeo. And let's maybe even planned for some of these big indoor events. That's what we're all hoping for and that starts with the vaccine process so we just hope it goes faster than predicted panel. Tesla's ceo and spacex. Founder elon. Musk told the wall street journal. This week that he's left california and moved here to texas. He says relocating makes sense. In light of tesla's new factory being built in the lone star state though. He didn't say exactly where he's moved or if he's actually bought a house here while he says california's great and both tesla and spacex. Continue to have operations. There must compares the state to a team. that's been winning for too long and has become a little complacent taking innovators like him for granted. The journal notes who's move follows. A trend of remote working tech employees fleeing silicon valley's high cost of living elon. Musk says he's left. California for texas. Is this good bad or ugly wayne. Oh of course. I think it's great that we're getting more business in texas and the texas landscape for all of the things that you can do is expanding Elon musk is certainly a banner example of that. But it's been going on for years. We've continued to see the brain gain. Of course everyone talks about austin and how so many of the tech companies are moving there but we also have a lot of biotech situations that are coming to houston so with spacex. I did see that. I think it was just this week that they're already launching rockets in from south texas from a place called boca chica. So i guess we'll get used to hearing that name in the news a lot more often With regards to to space expiration amber having. This is great. I mean bring it. I think alana's a little arrogant about the the comment on like that. California's been winning for too long and a little complacent taking innovators like him for granted. But i also think when you get to that level of entrepreneurship you kinda have to have some of that extreme level of confidence in yourself so i can also see that side of it. In any case. I have heard a lot of stories about the challenges of how much of a concentration of the same types of quote innovative businesses are located in the same area in california and that drives the price of housing up drives the price of everything up. It makes things very homogeneous as far as like the culture goes and the type of people. And so i think you know spreading things around a change of scenery is probably good for everyone including california itself so not just for ilan but also for the state david. This is good very good. Blessed with incredible resources perhaps our greatest resources there weather. How many places in the world are there where you can get out of bed in the morning and say what are we going to do today. Are we going to the beach or we're going to hit. The ski slopes and both are just a short drive away. It's one of the things that has led investors to the state and the state should be a paradise but as we've all seen those riches often take things for granted until they're gone and california's guilty. I love that quote from california. Governor gavin newsom. What he said. I'm not worried. We may not be the cheapest place to do business. We're the best place to do business. I guess he just doesn't get it when it comes to competition texas beats california where it counts. My only question is allow. What took you so long.

"There was going to be rats inside his mouth. Twenty twenty now apparently also includes rat filled chasms randomly sucking people down below public sidewalks. Is this good bad or ugly. Wayne please correct me if i'm wrong. Wasn't halloween last week. Because honestly that is. I have to admit that's one of my greatest fears is falling into like you know a manhole orwell or something like that and being surrounded by rodents or snakes or something scary like that. I can't stand it The person that will cover my eyes even to this day. If i see that sort of seen in a movie so i think this is very ugly. I'm so glad that this gentleman is alive to tell such a scary and creepy tail. And i will definitely be watching must up every time i am in new york city foreshore amber all right craig. This is definitely an easy answer. It's ugly the interesting dichotomy between the whale's tail on this it's like you know little angelic miracle and then like the depths of hell aka. This rat filled chasm in new york city. Yes really ugly. This is one of the craziest stories. I think i've ever read. And i will not be planning to move to the bronx anytime soon. I mean for more reasons than this. But this is definitely a great reason to just you know. Hang out here in houston for a little while longer david. We did have to have at least one nightmare today. This is the nightmare. This is uh ugly. Ugly beyond belief. I this is new york incurred in public. Been used so. I'm sure the politicians will be taking hits from the media on this. They did say a lawsuit was coming. So this may be in the media for a while. But seriously i really feel bad for this guy. A fifteen football is very dangerous. I used to work in construction when i was a teenager. And i've seen people fall from that high. Some walked away and others were incapacitated for months so i'm hopeful that he is a quick physical recovery but then there's dealing with the rats This is a horror movie a nonfiction horror movie. This will haunt him for a long time. So i'm hopeful that psychologically he's able to quickly get over this as well and that may be more of a challenge in the physical recovery. The one silver lining is that rabies. Shots aren't nearly as taxis they used to be. I think you only need to. So i wish him well.

"On monday in the netherlands. A dutch train blew past the end of its elevated tracks but instead of crashing to the ground thirty feet below it was caught and held in place by an artist giant sculpture of a whale's tail. No one was hurt. The partial derailments under investigation. But here's the kicker the sculpture which was created back in two thousand and two by artist. Martin stroz is called saved by the whales tale. A sculpture stops a train running off the tracks tracks. Is this good bad or ugly. David brenham. This is good super good. Maybe even astoundingly good. I know a lot of people are going to say. What a fortunate coincidence a sculpture captures. The train saves the train from a disaster and laughed. Sometimes we just run into good luck. But i'm not one of those people. i believe. This was divine intervention plain and simple. I believe that there are times when god tells us. I know you're not capable of seeing me. But i'm here. I look at things all around me all the time and i wonder why others can't see it for instance. How can we put millions of cars on the road every day. Flinging them down the highway at seventy five miles. An hour and still with very few exceptions are able to get where we want to go without incident to me. It's a miracle. I think this is just another example. Okay wayne ashley. I have to say. I'm taken aback by such an incredible feat and such an amazing sculpture that it was built strong enough to be able to hold up a train. That is stunning. And of course. We all know the power of art. We know that art saves lives every day by giving young people and any age people alike options to be able to do something and express themselves create time and activities that are fruitful to them as opposed to destructive. So we know that art saves lives every day and this is just one very concrete example. All right ambrose. I think it's good. No lives were lost. And if you look at the picture it does look like a movie set. It's absolutely wild and of course. The synchronicity of it being called saved by the whales. Tell us just make sure makes you wonder a little bit. There's some interesting cosmic plan going on here with this one any case. I think it's awesome. I hope they figure out what happened. So that they won't have to worry about Derailment or relying on plastic sculpture to save them next time but Wow this is crazy. I love it finally panel. It's a shame that sculpture wasn't positioned beneath leonard shoulders late last month while he waited at a bus stop. It might have protected him from the hole that suddenly opened up on the sidewalk causing him to drop twelve to fifteen feet into an underground volt filled with rats. It took about thirty minutes to extricate shoulders from the rodent filled chasm his brother greg white told. Cbs new york quote. He didn't wanna yell because he was afraid..

"Podcast amber david wayne. Welcome to houston matters. Howdy craig hey crank. Thanks for having me. Thank you craig panel. We begin where everyone's been focused this week. The election and making sure that every vote counts including one cast during early voting orlando by a woman in labor who insisted on casting her ballot before heading to the hospital fox. Thirty five orlando shared. The tale is told by poll worker. Karen senate gonzales. Who says she was at the orange county supervisor of elections office in orlando last week when a man handed her two drivers licenses and ask for her help. His wife was in their car in labor but insisting her vote should come first. Which did with gonzales help. And once the vote was cast the couple high tailed it to a hospital. Four miles away. You thought waiting in line was a burden try voting while in labor. Is this good bad or ugly emperor. Ambrose think voting of any kind is good so In labor extra good especially because you know women are getting it done. We're creating babies and going into labor and saving our democracy so Kudos to this amazing woman. Who had her priorities very straight. Obviously i hope she made it to the hospital and had a very empowering and healthy birth okay is it good bad or ugly david brenham. Okay on this one. I'm going to say both good and bad. It's certainly good. That she was able to vote. And i'm really glad she was able to pull it off for a long time now. In this country we've encouraged everyone to vote and wall often. We do that because we think it's going to help. Our favourite candidate get more votes. The reality is that it's best in democracy that everybody participate responsibly. That means not just going to vote. That means having an informed. Vote doing homework needed to do that. That said in some ways. I do long for the calmer days when people were less concerned about the outcome of these major elections now we have mass participation but fear is not because of a devotion to democracy but because so many people are disgusted by the opposition. There's a clear hatred going on by both sides and while it's good. Participation is high. It's not good that it's because of such high emotion and discuss for opposition. All right good bad or ugly wayne ashley. At first notion. I could see why some people may think is as bad. But let's be honest. We all know that florida is the perennial swing state so we need every vote. We can did in in florida. So i think it's good that they're making the effort however i am a bit worried given that this person is actually carrying to human beings if she may not be susceptible to all of the many many lawsuits that are being flown around during this election season. So so that is a worry. Hopefully she was able to escape. The frivolity of so many lawsuits that have been filed in are being filed around the selection. But given that. I think it's a very good thing that she was able to carry out her civic duty on the way to giving birth to an incredible child. What an amazing woman. She deserves to be applauded panel. Make no mistake. Art can save lives case in point.

"I'd like to hear your general reactions. On what happened. Tuesday marco any any particular thoughts to to kick us off. Yeah i mean. I think that the first thing we can tell is that the and i think you know your guess we're talking a little bit about your previous segment but clearly. This is not the blow out that election anybody was expecting. I think that people gut instincts across the country. Where right that the election polls were not telling us the full picture. I think people got burned the last time around. And we're being Very careful about taking for granted what this election was going to be about. I think people were committed. I think from both sides. I think what we saw was huge outs. Bow by both democrats and republicans But i do think it debunks the narrative that the nation as a whole You know the democrat narrative that has been that basically the nation get anxious and get ready to get rid of trump. that's not the case We're still very divided country Only divide in a very very narrow line. so it's i think it's remarkable. Just how closest election is going to be and So yes. I think the the overall picture is this is not a blowout for either side and it's pretty much as close as as we all thought it was gonna be. Wayne ashley your general reflections on the election. Yes i i can. I can see some of that of what marco was saying and i think that it just is a reminder that democracy is very messy and very unpredictable. I think that so much of the hopes and dreams of of some Sexually within the democratic party with regards to state like texas you know those things have been clearly corrected and we've now seen so much of what we didn't know. I think turnout is incredibly important. And even if things don't go one party particular ways it's still very important that we see or over eleven million more than twelve million. Texans have voted and now we know more than we did. So i think all of that is important. Why don't we dive right into some some calls. we've got on the line. Let's start with julie who's been waiting patiently from the west side julie What what are your thoughts this morning. This is kind of a repeat. But i want to thank people like you and ernie pretty mentioning this vote. Alternative is my third time in my life to vote. I did not have that league. Women voters with me. I'd like i think he's gonna send me one but a friend of mine gave me a sample ballot to give me an idea of what to look through. And i realized my it's right across.

"Is this good bad or ugly David Okay? This is ugly. Once again, we have a fast food conglomerate promoting meals that are packed with fifty carbs. Why would we be surprised at subway throws in a few grams of sugar into every piece of bread they freshly bake. We're very aware of the negative effects of drugs, alcohol and cigarettes, but we haven't took enough time to find out about food. We we need to know more about what we put into our bodies but dad isn't the only ugly thing here. Why would the Irish make tax policy like this? We're going to tax you more because you have too much sugar in your flower as a flower consumption is a good thing. It's far better to eat a salad than a sandwich I. think that's universally known perhaps if you're going to make tax incentives to keep people in your country healthy, it would be better to give the tax break to the restaurants who serve salads instead of sandwiches. All Right Amber Craig. I'm sure there's some Marie Antoinette joke here that we all missed. I think this is good. That's always getting called out. I am sure it has something to do with how much they manufacture it and. How it needs to be in huge bulk portions of the dough to get it or the mix that goes out to the different stores. But then I make a lot of sourdot to Toco bed and it is quite delicious with little to no sugar involved just flour water yeast and salt, and that's the basis of some of the best bread. So I don't understand really why you need the extra sugar. It's still tastes good. I'll admit that and it smells like heaven when you walk into a store but I guess more power to to Ireland Okay Wayne What an interesting subject and I I guess it's good if you're going to nominate all of subway's. Bread to be considered cake though I do find that a rather odd interpretation full disclosure I at one time was a sandwich artist, not a cook but a sandwich artist at subway, and I remember well having to bake lots and lots and lots of quote bread each day during the shift and and I was did find it interesting because because I used to love the smell of baking bread and when you beg at subway, it does smell good what it's not exactly the same as like if you're baking bread and home maybe. That sugar content is a reason why but in any case if the Irish wants to rule it as cake and have cake way sandwiches I guess that's their prerogative.

"A lot can happen a week some of it. Good. Some of it bad. Some of downright ugly when faced with intriguing developments in the weeks news, we turn to a rotating panel of non-experts to Parse the good the bad and the ugly of it. All on today's panel amber, Ambrose Co founder and CEO of Ambrose, McDowell. Communications and happiness our Menu Dot Com David Brandon professor of political science and Chair of social sciences at the university. Of Houston downtown and Wayne Ashley Editor of Texas leftist DOT COM and host of the aggressive voices podcast Amber David Wayne Welcome to Houston, matters thank you how Craig Crank Nice to be here today panel looking for a change maybe you'd like to consider a lovely home in Perry Obelisk Pennsylvania about thirty miles south of Pittsburgh berkshire-hathaway list this early twentieth century home with four bedrooms at three card attached garage an in Ground Pool Oh and I don't know if this matters to you or not but it's also the house used as serial killer buffalo bills home in the nineteen ninety-one film silence of the lambs while it doesn't actually contain the pit or workshop depicted in the film though scenes were shot on a sound stage. It does feature number of props from the film and otherwise looks remarkably like it did in the movie real estate agent. Eileen. Allen says if the House Isn't sold by Halloween, she will consider bringing in a psychic medium to identify any spirits that might be holding up a sale. The Creepy House from silence of the lambs is up for sale just three hundred k. any takers more importantly is this good bad or ugly way nationally, start us off though I'm sure the towel of period is rather nice in many respects like all of our wonderful American cities this one's going to be A. Ugly for me I haven't actually watched the silence of the lambs probably since I was at least in single digits of age and certainly on the cost of bedding time because I'm not a big fan of horror films in general in fact, it's one thing that I really try to avoid in almost all cases. So to have to continually relive trauma from such a crazy film as the silence of lambs. Would not be a fun thing for me at all. So this would definitely be ugly and I'm definitely going to stay here in Houston where I think it's safe. All right. Is this good bad or ugly? David Brenham all this is good i. definitely give this a rating of good now because it's so creepy but because of the nostalgia, it's amazing to me how much these souvenirs helped bring us closer to things. My Memories for instance, her baseball I remember going to palm springs for spring, training and Ernie banks coming over and talking to the kids and signing autographs. I remember Jay Johnstone when he was the center fielder for the California Angels Toss me a piece of bubble gum and I knew grabbed a piece of bubble gum that I would never chew it Consequently, I've hundreds of baseball cars that are fifty years old not because they will every worth anything. But because looking at them brings back great memories. That's the beauty of this house in Pennsylvania movies are so impactful in our lives. It's been decades since the release of silence of the lambs and still so powerful this house brings back memories and brings us closer to the movie I. Hope to buyer. We'll have a deep appreciation for the value of these memories. Okay. Is it good bad or ugly Ambrose Crag? This is good because this house is amazing. And it's under three hundred, thousand dollars. And it's in great shape. It's beautiful and there's a pool I am sold the fact that it was the set for a very creepy movie about a serial killer notwithstanding it's a gorgeous little house and whoever looks into that deal should charge admission or starting at NBC where you get to stay in the house that would be a really wise business investment in my opinion that's what I would do with it. Also it looks like it's in really great shape. When a cool story. Maybe ambers buying, but some Houston's May find the silence of the lambs house just a little too creepy and may decide instead to stay put here. In the Lone Star State panel I'm sorry to be the one to tell those folks but according to gambling websites slot source dot com where I go for all my hard news research Texas has the most haunted hotspots in the country the site took data from ghosts of America. Dot Com another great news resource and compiled it to rank US states noted Texans have experienced six, thousand, eight, hundred, forty, five reported ghostly sightings since two, thousand, five that's more than one a day the haunting is coming from inside the state is this good ugly amber it's good because we're I, I'm a list that doesn't have anything to do with corona virus cases or the lowest amount of education dollar spent so I'll take it. I also think it's really fun I love the idea of ghosts in the way that like humans have been this year kind of feels like maybe we could use some assistance from the other side to try and become better people become a better society treat each other. Nicer. So maybe being haunted is a good thing. I'll take it. All right Wayne Ashley Craig if I didn't know any better I'd say that some of these topics seemed to be picked just to get under our skin. To be honest, it's very ugly to be to know that there's so much We'll call it paranormal activity across the state of Texas I don't know what all of the things that could be ghoulish or ghastly maybe lurking in our direction and to be honest I don't want to know I guess I'm just going to have to keep my eyes focused on the incredibly wide freeways and try not to veer off into any paranormal paths, all of that ugly to me. So I will just cover my eyes and hope for the best okay, David. Brenham oh. This is good I definitely give. A rating of good not because it's so creepy but because of the nostalgia, it's amazing to me how much these souvenirs helped bring us closer to things some of my greatest memories for instance, her ball I remember going to palm springs for Spring Training and Ernie banks coming over and talking to the kids and signing autographs remember Jay Johnstone when he was the center fielder for the California Angels, Toseh- me a piece of Bubblegum and I knew when I grabbed that piece of bubble gum that would never chew it. Consequently I've hundreds of baseball cars that are fifty years old not because they will every worth anything but because looking at and brings back great memories, that's the beauty of this house in Pennsylvania movies are so impactful our lives it's been decades since the release of silence of the lambs and it's still so powerful. This House Brings Back Memories and brings us closer to the movie I. Hope to buyer. We'll have a deep appreciation for the value of these memories. This next story happened while last week's non expert panel was busy. Weighing in on foul-mouthed parrots and time travel paradoxes. So this one falls to you the Irish Supreme Court last week ruled that subway's bread isn't bread not legally anyhow as NPR's restock sner reported the court found subway's bread has too much sugar and the country's value added tax act of Nineteen seventy-two says tax exempt bread cannot have sugar fat and bread improver that exceeds two percent of the weight of the flower subways. Recipe calls for sugar making up ten percent of the weight of the flour and was therefore legally closer to cake. Subways bread isn't really bread according to court in Ireland anyway.

"Good, bad or ugly Wayne Ashley at long last a fun topic and hopefully something that we can all agree on all look forward to well I think that the toy hall of fame is not only good but it's amazing something that just has to be giving us a form to be able to compare and contrast different toys have captured each and every generation. You know I'm a big kid at heart and you know that I love to reminisce about some of my favorite toys from the past like Teddy Ruck spin, for example, but you know this is. This is a great thing and I'm I'm gonNA visit the strong National Museum when I get a chance and you can't hate on the brownies. Why do people talk so badly about my little pony at all the brownies they organized themselves, they become a multi million dollar convention and they do everything they really get it done. So I'm team Brownie and you should be too. All right amber. Craig I. Love This question and the answer is good. I love this just going through the list of toys like really lifted my soul this week by the way Speaking of toys in kids solidarity to all of the H. I. S. t parents and students, and staff and teachers, and. Village that takes care of all the kids and caretakers and everyone going virtual school this week it has not been easy but you know what we're GonNa do this back to toys I just really thought this list was fun. It brought me back a lot by the way light bright is like totally back with old is new again, which is not surprising. My kids have one masters of the universe toys is on this list to I'm a big sheriff fan again, there's a reboot on Netflix I'm actually really enjoying it. This was just so much fun. They all deserve a spot on there I don't know why we have to vote because all of these toys R. Classic and Worthy Love this question okay, David Toy Hall of fame is a great idea hall of fame's are about recognizing those things that gave us great experiences in the past, and I believe that toys were clearly a big part of most of our childhood giving us memories of great experiences. That said I believe the list of twelve finalists that have here is listed very few people with will agree with for instance, light bright is on the list library came out when I was five years old. I don't remember asking for light bright or wanting one. I don't remember anybody in the neighborhood having one I do remember a whole lot of people wanting hot wheels. But light bright wasn't one of those toys that I think should be here. So while I love the idea of a toy hall of fame I, think the list needs a little bit of adjustment.

"Crank. Thanks for having me. Thank. You, Craig how did Craig panel is we learned this week Luby's Inc the company that owns the decades-old Texas cafeteria dining staple as well as fud rutgers restaurants has decided to liquidate its businesses and distribute proceeds to investors chairman Gerald Body says the company still hopes to find a buyer that would keep some of its restaurants open and that there are no immediate plans to close any that are but locations that have not reopened since the pandemic began are not likely to the Luby's chain has been struggling for years as Texans restaurant tastes have changed and moved away from cafeteria style dining. Now it appears it's days are numbered. Is this good bad or ugly amber embrose start us off I. Think this is bad. It's definitely not good. So many of us have these extremely fond memories usually around family and for me it was on Sundays going to Luby's after church we would go to mass then we would meet my grandparents. We'd meet my cousins, my aunts and my uncles, and we'd all get a giant table and it was just how he spent almost every Sunday when I was a kid and I'm GonNa Miss It I. Miss that part of my life I'm being a kid. So it's not one hundred percent, the restaurant itself as it's mainly. The memories and I think that's what people are feeling I'm it's not ugly because I. Think you know it was time to move on. I will never ever forget square fish in the tartar sauce at his slathered on top. It is absolutely an engineering marvel. So delicious but I'm going to have to figure out another way to either replicated at home or move on it was time for Luby's to go. All right. Good better ugly David Brenham. I'll would break this ugly people were going to lose their jobs and we can't afford for them lose jobs but we're also GONNA lose a good healthy eating option in this city. Where else can you go and walk in the door and have freshly cooked vegetables ready for you as soon as you walk in and you can get a nutritious meal I'm GonNa Miss Luby's I. Remember when my wife was pregnant that we would go to Luby's because we knew we could get a nutritious meal and not have to cook or clean and I think it's particularly Lee said that are eating options are getting healthy instead of more healthy. When it comes to free, we become a community where we drive through and eat in the car and I hope we can turn this around somehow and pay more attention to what we eat and how we if we can do that I. Think we'll live longer and live happier and be more productive and I hope we can make that turnaround soon but Razz for now we just haven't done it yet. Okay good better ugly. Wayne Ashley what a Texas tragedy to lose such an iconic restaurant that people all across the state. No, it's just yet another thing to be sort of bummed out about with twenty twenty. You know it's just been such a difficult year with so many changes and so many things happening. But even though this this I would certainly qualify as bad. I hope that there is hope for the restaurant in the future and that. They can either reform and we'll have a new place to go and gather when we can finally do that again even if it's not the iconic Luby's panel wouldn't be able to rest easy until you knew what architectural paint brand deluxe would announce as it's twenty, twenty, one color of the year. Well, the company revealed it's color they call brave ground, and well, it's a sort of cross between grey and Beige officially, it's. An earthy Brown tone sort of reminiscent of what was painted on every wall of every home put up for sale starting about fifteen years ago the response has been mixed as the London. Mirror wrote this week some call the color warm lovely, and calming while others are less fond one calling graves another describing it as snore SOM and surprised that the company didn't go with quote the unrelenting blackness of the abyss were all screaming into. A paint company calls a cross between grey and Beige brave ground and proclaims the next color of the year. Is this good bad or ugly David Brenham I give brave ground as color year a of good. I think a lot of times when we think of colors that we think our favorite colors or something that gives us an emotional reaction you know we think a peak or yellow or blue or some some colors that really are different from what we're normally looking at. But brave ground gives us a calming feeling I think. It gives us an a feeling that the atmosphere around us. His is tranquil. I think a lot of people really value that and so in. Looking at Bray ground is the color of the year I have no problem. I think it's good idea and so I, give it my full endorsement. All right. Good better ugly nationally well, Craig. I hate to say it this way but to me this brave ground color puts the A in ugly how much more concrete slash bay slash office tour don't look at me wall. Can we get for twenty twenty one? It's just not it's not my favorite color and it's not being spiced up by any sort of other situations you know this is this is one that I just would hate. For this whole time period to be remembered for it's not it's not something that moves me. So I have to go with ugly and I hope that maybe we'll start considering other colors or other patterns maybe for twenty twenty two, we can go for a leopard print or zebra print as a standard you know whatever color you, WanNa, you WanNa throw in there but yeah, this this one's not moving me. All right good better ugly Emperor Ambrose. Okay. So I think brave ground is good. I have no problems with it I think it's a safe choice and I think that's okay for twenty twenty we all want to feel a little safer don't we? I also think it's very soothing on a wall. and. I am usually when who gravitates towards vibrant bright kind of allowing colors, fuchsia and teal and bright yellow and I like combinations of this kinds of colors together. But yeah, for a wall color. I do think they kind of miss an opportunity to do something a little wild this year if there's nothing to lose which I kind of feel like twenty twenty should be renamed the year where we felt like we literally had nothing to lose. They could have been a little more braver with the brave ground, but you know what? They're trying to sell paint I get it I would paint it on my walls panel voting is underway and continuing through. September. Sixteenth for the next inductees into the national toy hall of fame it's based at the strong National Museum of play in Rochester New York, and among the dozen nominees this year are some that I've heard of a few I played with as a kid while I'm sentimentally rooting for Bingo light bright and the all purpose sidewalk chalk to join staples. Ranging, from the Rubik's cube to the Frisbee and Hula Hoop I suspect America's brownies will run up the score and the players choice public ballot at Toy, Hall of Fame Dot Org for my little pony. If one of this year's other nominees is selected, you can also count on its fans nationwide dl Yahtzee do credit also to the toy hall of fame for previous inductees that spoke more to kids imagination less to commercialism like the cardboard box, a blanket and a stick. The vote is on for the next inductees into the national toy hall of fame is this..

Former student talkto her. They caught up on everything and as they were talking Becca, who was also in the same target, coincidentally, comes running up and says, Hey, how's it going? I can't stay and talk. I just wanted to say hi because I saw you from across the store. At that point, she says, the student that I was the middle of a conversation with looked at me kind of surprised and asked me this. Do you know that woman and I said, Yeah, why? And she goes. I work at a fitness center, and she goes there and Everybody on staff thing. She's sleeping with our manager, and he's married. Okay, so she is apparently sleeping with the manager at the fitness center who was also married. And so now we don't know that for a fact it was a quick thing. Maybe the student mistook her for another worsen. Looks like Becca. Possible. Or maybe it's just around the shop talk. You know, Jim talk is kind of like water cooler talk, which is kind of like gossip talk, which is kind of like 10th grade talk. Yes.

"Many more times do we have to get that information out? It is rather frustrating and then we have tragedies like what happened to this this poor server this this can't go on we as a society really have to make some decisions and we have to start appealing to the better portions of ourselves so that we can save lives and we can function in this new reality panel Houston astras hitting coach Alex. Cintron was suspended twenty games and fined Tuesday for his role in last. Sunday's very non socially distanced benches clearing scuffle. In Oakland, the punishment is the longest suspension. For onfield behaviour in fifteen years according to the as Ramon Laureano who rushed towards the Astros coach after Laurie. Auto had been hit by pitches in three different at bats in the series syndrome quote said in Spanish something you don't say about my mother unquote the coach denies that but says, his actions were inappropriate. Laureano received a six game suspension in fine as well for his actions. Major League baseball is not fooling around and squarely pins punishment on an astros coach for helping fuel a benches clearing scuffle is this good bad or ugly? Amber Ambrose I think it's bad that. In many ways, I think it's bad that this. was even conflict I think it's. Bad that the Astros are kind of proving point or being made an example. I also think that if you cheat, you also have to kind of accept the fact that you're going to be under extra scrutiny for a while. So that might be part of it. I also think it might be making a point about like don't add to the fuel of covid like a brawl just brings more opportunities to spread. Corona virus. So I think there are a lot of things that went into this decision. I think. CITRON. took his punishment with. A Lot more grace than he did when he hid behind his player. When the fight broke out so I know I can see both ways. All right. What say you Wayne Ashley though the coaches punishment does seem rather harsh on the surface I think ultimately, it does fit the decision and it's a thing that the mobile has taken such a decisive punishment. For this case, you know when you are considered to be a coach for a team that's not just about having expertise in a particular for that team is about setting an example and the players need to see a good example from all of their coaching staff. It's so important. They are being watched by the entire world as they play, and they have to be able to see people that are setting good examples for them, and so encouraging a fight seems like one of the ultimate things that you would not want to do as a coach and so from that standpoint, I think that the very harsh suspension fits the situation..

"With the upcoming AFL draft trying to get as many draft prospects on the program is I can David sills was in studio earlier today, I'm trying to get you as many perspectives is that possibly can. Here's another one when I respect greatly. He's an NFL network analyst he had a twelve year career in the National Football League as a player and a scout the founder of big play football, host of the move the sticks podcast along with Daniel. Jeremiah, the head coach at Granada hills charter high school you can follow him on Twitter at Bucky Brooks NFL network is going to provide live coverage of the two thousand nine hundred NFL scouting combine March first through the fourth starting at nine AM eastern, ten AM eastern on Saturday Bucky Brooks is my guest Bucky great to have you back. How are you? I'm good. Thanks, always gonna have you. Let me jump right into it. Let me start at quarterback with you. You recently tweeted that Dwayne Haskins is the number one quarterback in this year's class. What have you seen from him? That makes you say that. He's a fantastic player. Jim when when you watch him play he plays the game the way that the top quarterback in the league for the last twenty to thirty years. An outstanding pocket passer. He has a big arm can make every throw that you wanna see, but he also kicked roller finesse. Can touch timing. The patient is a high football IQ, and he's a guy that despite only play one year as a starter. You've got remarkable numbers fifty touchdowns eight interceptions play the game the right way. I think for most teams who want to have a pocket passer someone that can kind of play it in a very digital fashion. Dwayne Haskins is the guy that check off all the boxes, and it'd be interesting to see after he spends it at the combine what the conversation is coming out of Andy prior to opposed to what it was going into NFL boggy Brooks, joining us warmer thought about that. When you watch him, what do you make of the way he handled things when the protection breaks down? Do you like that from him? Now, you know, there's a lot of people that talk about look, he's not a mobile guy doesn't have the athleticism. But I think the maker of the elite quarterback elite quarterbacks understand what's coming and they figure out a way to get rid of the ball. And I'm not saying that this kid had wanted to come in and automatically be Tom Brady pay many. But when you see how time gradient paid manning were able to evolve their games later in their careers is because they understood how the difference was attacking and they were able to answer it. I getting the ball out quickly into the hands of the playmakers Dwayne Haskins time is going to be that kind of player. He is going to be a guy that fix the defense during the pre Snapface and actually take support defenses wants to baller snap because he understands exactly where to go to the ball go with the ball. And he does it in spectacular fashion. Bucky Brooks NFL media analyst also played and scouted in the NFL for a number of years Bucky. Then of course, there is kinda Murray. What is the biggest question? About him that you're looking to have answered at the Columbine. The biggest question everyone is going to happen. What does he measuring? Like how tall how much did you wear? We saw Peter King reported that he was trying to six pounds. The most recent time to wait where he comes in at five ten or shade under five hundred. He is what he is. But what I can tell what I pop into. You'll find many football players that are better than him. What he does with the ball in his hand is dynamic explosive. If you went inside or outside, the port, talk it. Here's a guy gets when you look at his numbers compared to Baker mayfield's numbers at Oklahoma in the same system with the same coach the numbers comparable caliber gives you a little more explosiveness as a runner based on. How Baker Mayfield played his first year in the league. I think there's something to say look calibrate and come into the league and in the right system with the right coach, you can absolutely light it up, but you have to be willing to kind of build your offense around what he's able to do. We're talking to Bucky Brooks buck, you know, how fun offices work. So do you think teams will look at Murray and see the potential and the types of things you're talking about right here. Or are they going to look and see the concerns and not want to take that risk? Ultimately depends on how comfortable you are your situation long tenured general manager who has a lot of Trump's on the wall. He could take a calamari calamari to work out, it won't necessarily affect impact his reputation as an evaluator the thing that general managers liked to do they want to make sure that they don't mess it up that they just kinda hit it down the fairway did they don't take necessarily risks. And the best way to do. It is to go after guys who check off all the boxes when it comes to the prototypes. He's not a prototypical quarterback. But what is it an excellent quarterback? And if you match him up he and Dwayne Haskins versus some of the other guys in the class. If you just look at the tape Calum Murray outplayed all of them. And I think the conversation is who would you prefer? I Calabria we because not a debate with the other guys in my mind about you Bucky when you look at those guys I understand that very different players. But who would you rather have I if that were your pick? You know, because depending upon the Arizona Cardinals say I was looking for a quarterback calamari will be the guy because teams very has had experience with those kinds of quarterbacks that he said he would take him number one. But if you ask me for the majority of teams, I'll take Wayne Ashley Wade has is is the classic prototypical quarterback that most teams covet. I don't understand why the conversation hasn't been about him being a terrific prospect, and maybe one of the best prospect that we've seen in the position, but I will tell you. I think the kid is special. And I think he's gonna do special things in the league so puck if you're the cardinals and you had Josh Rosen. Would you feel like we already have our franchise quarterback or as Murray so special he's special to pass up even if you've got Rosen. I think it'd be a situation where Murray's to special in the scheme that they're going to use on the cliff cave to pass up. This kid is a a remarkable player is wonder housing trophy. And you saw the numbers that he was able to put up with over Terry going all the way back to high school that he may have been the best high school football player in the state of Texas based on what he was able to do is three times state champion at Allen high school kid is good. And when he dedicates himself to be in a football player four time, which is what he will do going forward. I think the feeling is tremendous. I think there's an opportunity to really be a starting to the Bucky Brooks joining us now taking a step back and look at the combine overall you and Daniel Jeremiah Buckley, had a really interesting conversation on your podcast about technology. And combine you take that step back what kind of role can you see technology playing in the combine incoming years? Can continue to play a huge role in the way that gather scouting these prosperity. And I know we we're kind of old school in the way that we compile the numbers we we do forty forty times in short shuttles and Berta codes and all those days and traditionally redone, those things stop watches world with a GPS technology. That is now available you can track and monitor how explosive guys are you can do things when you compiling data for the prototypes succeeding in the league. When it comes to measuring that data. I just think as we continue to get comfortable with the analytics and the metrics and the data that is now available. They're really good football. Mine are going to be able to find ways to bridge bed information with Intel of scouting and looking at tape and find a way to really narrow the focus when it comes to really good players that ain't strap we're talking to Bucky Brooks. I've got a couple of quick things for your buck. You before I let you go. I really am curious about you calling MAURICE Jones drew asked you if the Steelers. Will have a winning season next year without Lebanon bell Antonio Brown. I'm in town is a key obvious excess in the NFL, but so is having chemistry and making the pieces fit together. How do you see that offense next year without the two of them? A lot of it depends on Ben Rothlisberger in his ability to step back and allow the Steelers to play the best way that they need to play the wing games, meaning without AB without levian Bill. This is a team that may not be as explosive whereas dynamic, and this has been the last four or five years. We'll Ben Rothlisberger be willing to check his ego at the door and play like maybe the patriots had to play when they decided at the end of the year that the best way for them to win was to run the ball a little more ball control and kinda shrink the game by running insulting the game away it robs burgers willing to do that. And they certainly can win game. But I think this is really kind of a critical situation. Not for the players before. Mike Tomlin, Mike Tomlin has an opportunity to regain control of his locker room. This could be the reset that a Seattle Seahawks were able to do last year under Pete Carroll. We'll Mike Tomlin orchestrate dead kind of reset where. He blows AB levian Bill is not going to be there. He takes to raise back from Ben Rothlisberger any says, this is how the Steelers are going to play. This is my team, and I'm gonna put my thumbprint on the same. We'll see if he's willing to do that. He Bucky makes sense. Right. But then you had the GM saying last week. Depend Rothlisberger was more than right to call out his teammates that if they were smart the quote, fifty two kids that Ben has to play with should be looking at Ben because he's one with the rings. So you think Tomlin will try to rip that control back to Ben or what's going on with the GM is saying Benz got right actually van is also gonna got in the past. And I know people come in me because they say all we've been a hard time. But I think when you look at the quarterback data the ultimate leaders in winters in this league. They're the ones that kind of understand when they need to be selfish when they need to make sure that they put four all them when it comes to taking the blame. They also know how to elevate their players not only through plane, but through the way that they lead. I think the thing would. Ben rothlisberger. Everyone wants to see on your chest. What are you willing to do two things? They're really make you a captain. Are you willing to privately instructor guiding elevate them while publicly continue to praise them? You don't criticize people in an open form leadership is not how you do it in the presser leadership is what you really do to help your teammates become better players. I don't know if he has in them. But if he wants to accomplish these things that he says that he wants to get a champion. He is going to have to think about changing his leadership style because he's doing it. Now, certainly doesn't endear him to his peers Bucky, you sound like a coach, and the reason for that is you are a coach I mentioned it off the very top. You're the new head football coach at Granada hills charter high school, I think that's absolutely awesome..
