Who is QB2 in 2021 NFL Draft?
"It would have been fully justified and with that we welcome you back as always live from the seaport district appear seventeen brought to you by chase. I green this get up and we have a huge our coming your wine. It starts with this. It's a quarterback sneak mc shays make board is in and wait till you see the first four picks. He's with us live to break down off the top. Then wait a minute. What did russell say. Is he talking about getting sri. Didn't from seattle the wild ride in. Nfl history continues. And then we'll tell you how the shawn watson saga plays out and what it will mean for every team in the nfl. All that and more as we get out with you when this hour which starts right now with todd mcshay post super bowl mock draft. It's available right now on espn plus all it. It's fascinating a number one. That's no big surprise. He's got trevor lawrence going number one to urban meyer and the jaguars. But here's where it gets interesting. He also has quarterbacks going to three and four at two he has the jets taking. Byu's zack wilson who has been rising up. Everybody's draft what he has been be talk of the nfl draft process so far at three overall. He's projecting trade the panthers moving up from eight to take north dakota state's train lance to be their quarterback of the future which leaves ohio states justin field sitting there. Four and mcshea has the falcons taking him fields the second highest total qbr in college football season and then jones sliding down a little bit later to make five quarterbacks in the first round in there he is the man with the mic board. It is mcshea and it's awesome. Let's start with this todd. We all understand. Trevor lawrence going number one. Nothing even to discuss. How firmly planted in. Your mind is zack. Wilson right now as the number two quarterback in this draft. I think very firmly. The first thing i do when the season is over and a govan studied the top quarterbacks. Because i know that's what we're going to talk about for the majority of this process leading up to the draft and after lawrence. There's a little bit of a gap and then at zack wilson. And then there's a gap between gods trey lance from north dakota state and justin feels from ohio state. So i think he is clearly the number two quarterback in this class. The question becomes greenie. Is that the jets taking two or the jets gonna move out and allow a team like a carolina to that number two spot to take him. And that all depends on the domino's in terms of the veteran quarterbacks right now where does shawn watson wind up carson wentz. We know is going to get moved to chicago indianapolis. I think joe douglas. The general manager is kind of waiting. And seeing some of these other quarterbacks go and he's fielding phone calls he's not aggressively making calls but fielding calls to see maybe if they can move sam darnold and if they do exactly since the pick for the jets at number two and if not as i said i think the jets will move outta to and wilson will still wind up being that number number two overall pick in this class. I grew the. I've been saying for a while. I agree with you completely. He'll be number two. The question is who winds up making the peck. Then the other part of this is. I'm old enough to remember a time when we wondered if justin fields might supplant trevor lawrence as the number one draft now all of a sudden these the fourth quarterback off the board. How did that happen. You go back. And study games against indiana northwestern. And then the college football playoff national championship game against alabama. He completed around fifty two percent of throws with five interceptions. Those games in my opinion. You look at it physically. He's big. he's sturdy strong who mobile. He's got a big arm all the traits that you look for. But he likes to see his receivers. Come open and get stuck on that. I read very frequently. So you compare him with trae. Lance and i have identical grades on the to train. Lance didn't play the level of competition. Didn't play as many games as is justin fields but i think he processes the game a little quicker in terms of going from his first into a second and third and seeing the entire field. So it won't surprise me if it feels is third quarterback off the board. But i think they're kind of bunched together in that third tier of quarterbacks behind lawrence wilson and then the other two and then i want to ask you about the guy that you currently have fifth because i'm a regular listener of the first draft podcast and so i'm listening the other day to you and field. Yates and mel kiper talking about what was going on at the senior bowl and everyone is raving about matt jones. Your buddy mel had max jones moving this thing and i believe he has him sort of. I believe he hasn't projected higher than you have in projected. What do you see for mack. Jones as this process goes on the fifth quarterback in the first round. Well i think what's going to happen. He's matt jones is going to benefit from the fact that these four quarterbacks are gonna come off the board quickly and it's probably going to be cut because of trades moving up. I have matt jones going number twelve overall right now in a i had chicago moving up to twelve in san francisco. Moving back to twenty we have to see where carson wentz go. It does go to

The Yetzer of Great Men (Sukkah 52a)
"Below. So what tax do you have today. So i thought we'd look at the text from the gamero from soka fifty two a m. it's a famous tax but i don't think we ever discussed it as groups. I'd love to hear your thoughts. So here's tomorrow and it says as follows new rubber nana rabbis taught. Now this is in the middle of a whole major discussion relating to the gates or hora which the camera tends to me the sexual drive. Not just the general desire to send although could mean that as well so it quotes verse. And it says edited Mirror i am. I will distance this The northern one from you but it says this is referring to the eighth or hara which is hidden in the hearts of human beings and then the end of the versus because he has done greatly like the great power of gates zara and the texas follows. I'm are by media having your jimmy. Coolum that the power of the eighth or hara is greatest amongst the tourists ages and then it tells the following story once happened that by her demand. Say to a woman with us rise early. And we'll go on the road. And i thought i'll follow them and prevent them from sinning because he assumed that they were having some sexual assignation. He went after them about three miles for three meal through the reeds heard them saying our conversation has been so nice and now we must take separate roads by my enemy. Meeting myself would not have contained himself. Could not have if i was with that woman half i would not have been able to contain myself. Leaned against the both of the door and was very sorry that he would have been worse than a common man. So here i rabbi would not have been able to control myself from these this man and woman just friends no man came to him and taught the greater man is the more is he tempted by the evil spirit by the eighth or hara and the hebrew is coho. Godot may have a row each rogue adult men who who is greater than his friend. His desire his yates. There is stronger than than a friend. So my god can i jump and i don't want to jump to very famous bride loftier thoughts so i wonder it may be a slow alternate perspective on this and that the more you put up barriers or the more you like make things You know make the bins into a big deal of being now allowed the harder on those heavier sits on your head. I'm saying this really inarticulate way but it's kind of like if you take a boy and a girl who public school together and all the time wasn't girls and then you send them off to do an errand you don't have two seconds of thought that oh my god you will get a horrible. Overtake them whether you take two kids from haredi community never ever ever have an object to hang out together all the sudden the whole interaction become so much more fraught. So that's the first thing that goes through my head here and so interest. It's it's normally not done or is it. Also because the reason it's not done is it's always framed as being a sexual temptation and for that's the lens that's brought to the reason men and women. We don't have them go together into carry. Community is because women's sexual temptation. Where freight of your yeats their horror and therefore if that's always the message that that also becomes the lens through which you know. The the experience is taking place at boulder trail that's interesting. Yeah i mean my first When i heard this tax was on a totally different tack and maybe not as positive i was like oh god that sounds like a total apologetic for like powerful people like sexually harassing other. People's like oh you know the greater you are the greater your temptation is going to be and it totally like rubbed me the wrong way but i guess watch you're reading is really interesting. I'm like trying to relate to it as like the you know heavier and higher. Your set of expectations for yourself are the like heavier bat. Might weigh upon you like how would you understand that the greater the rabbi quote unquote degraded the rabbi most likely more he has separated himself out from the day to day workings of the world. Right like when we think about great rabbis particular. We think about people who've had a little bit closer themselves from the world's and that's where i'm going with this. Although i do think you are reading sarah which is fascinating to me about the powerful people. There's a whole other way to look at this. Which is that. We often complain about the fact that powerful people are the ones who are much more sexually abusive. And sometimes i we kind of bring it on ourselves because the people that we choose as powerful people and i'm not sure rabbis phones category but generally politicians we go after like people who are charismatic and a little bit narcissistic and who you know love to be loved and one adulation by and we love those people. We pick them. We take them as movie stars. We picked politicians. A man were surprised when they bay. That way does make vase which you cannot see the podcast. So on gonna shut up. Don't disagree with you just. I think that we're missing You know what i. I would consider sort of an obvious perspective. Which is that. it's not just true. We value but the reality that if you think about gates there as more generally as dr could be sexual drive drive lost. You know that. isn't that often. What makes people great. What sort of you know why somebody is nice. Not just your average in our personal. No like i have a passion of doing something in the world making a difference if this you know maybe i don't know if we call it sexual identity that is sublimated and me directly. Guess call it. Yates aaron general. You know that sometimes expresses itself sexually and sometimes super interesting. I really liked that. Yeah totally yeah. I think that's absolutely true. The non psychologist of the group is the one who came up with that with that. There's different ways to look at this. I think. I think it's a really really interesting you know and i think to the damara asked why at all or not statement you know. It is in the context of a discussion of yates. There which is not limited to sexual although the often reduces. Yates there to the sort of sexual drive. You know i mean there's a metric that says the God saw on the end of the steak he told about. Oh you know that it was very good so the mavericks has told my. Opiates are horror so so which is a very i had on suggestive mattress so someone if eight needs out needs mostly good. Who's the gates are. Har- is good but the metrics actually says work not for the easter hara. A person wouldn't build a a major building and wouldn't get married so sort of speaks about the value of the eight sarah as very constructive creative force that can of course he does Destructive as well right. It is really interesting that i won't talk about. These people aren't when travelling. I kinda soon to as a couple so to a while to realize eleven couple with the other question also is the rabbi assumes. Let the same women he's attracted to everybody's attracted to like that's fascinating into dog south houston guy would have trouble with anyone at all or just this particular women were in. A plastic case was just like any sort of vaguely attractive woman would be at the our material or was it. This woman in particular amend the assumption that this woman was that for this guy as well as an. I don't take down kind of winding back way. But i find that also a little bit amusing and that goes back to what i was saying about you. Know if you have no exposure to something to limit your exposure some bank. It makes it much more tempting. You know it's like What's expresses miami. Vinnie lights right. Stolen waters will arm our sweeter so were or the worst the tax about that. You don't trust the somebody's not have sex with their fiance david for the wedding. Because but you're not worried about it after the wedding right because hospice was at once. You have a bread in your basket. Brad's by basket. Like there was no description of the or desirability of the woman was almost like from like exactly what you said that for a by being so sheltered the opportunity to be with any woman would have been just such a irresistible temptation. You know so exactly back shit up. Yeah i was about to say like was that by was he. Did he have any outlet here and also what was he doing following this couple like. Why is that his job. Follow up and make sure that they don't send creepy is is her giving itself a certain allowance. Like i'm gonna make sure they don't see him. But the there's something very right You know What's word titillating out. I think you know about the possibility of of what's going to happen. Yeah kind of and it kind of reminds me of rory of the of the student who goes under the bed like listen to his teacher have but never knows that story. Well rejects. i use it all. I

Boston - Patriots cancel practice after another positive COVID-19 test
"At least by the reporting of Mike Reese and also field Yates of ESPN that the Broncos have A couple of or I should say the Patriots have a covert 19 positive, maybe two. What are you hearing? Yeah. And while I'm obviously here in the same stuff you in real time kind of trying to track it every step of the Broncos on haven't heard back yet to find out if they've heard from the league as Faras. Causing their plans or potentially looking at moved to. Ah, Monday starter a Tuesday on Tuesday. Kick potentially on so I'm sure that the Broncos are you know they're about to hit the practice field or they may be out there right now. Normally I'd be there. But again the new baby's keeping practice. But this is the practice will go Tell that 12 45. They're not going to change that at this point, because right now you work so much situational stuff. And not just situational is related to the game, but but situational things, you know, onside kick stuff and things that you know, I don't say trick plays. But just in case this happens in the game, be ready for this. So that'll hold game to game, Not just They're not. They play the Patriots, but certainly question mark now, if there is one or even two positive cases. Down current, though, who covers the Pats for NBC Sports Boston. I thought I had a pretty good point because they've been socially different now for so long, and we're out of the building most of last week and then when they didn't do whatever they did. It was all on the field spread out, including meeting Saturday or whatever, then we're off Sunday to Wednesday. And that yesterday was the first day back. Odds are this case is probably residual from the Stefan Gilmore Cam Newton Positive test. Brian counter the defence line from that group.

Novelist Donald Ray Pollock On Factory Work And Finding Fiction Later In Life
"Today's first guest is author Donald Ray Pollock, whose novel the devil all the time has just been made into a new netflix movie premiering next Wednesday. It Stars Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson, and here's a taste in this clip. A young boy has just watched his father pulverized two guys after they made lewd comments about the father's wife, the son's mother. Afterward the father gives his son some advice. You remember what I told you. On. The buzzer gave you. That's what I mean. got. To. Sir. Good sons of bitches out there. One hundred. These that many. Cannonball. In, both the movie and the novel the characters in the devil all the time are driven to extremes whether their fathers and sons, serial killers or preachers. The story begins in the small town of knock him stiff a real place in southern Ohio where Donald Ray pollock grew up. He didn't become a writer until he put in over thirty years at the local paper mill and got sober. But. Once he did start writing. He was noticed quickly receiving both awards and critical. Acclaim. Terry, gross spoke to Donald Ray pollock in twenty eleven when the devil, all the time was first published. Donald, Ray pollock welcome to fresh air. I'd like to start with reading from your new book, the Devil, all the time It's about the second paragraph from the prologue. So would you just set it up for us? What we have here is A young boy's name is Arvin Eugene Russell and he's following behind his father Willard and there and place called knock him stiff and they're going to Willard's prayer logging as a log in the woods where he Wants to communicate with God and So this is where they are. You know early in the morning and their. have finally reached this log. Willard eased himself down on the high side of the law and motion for his son to kneel beside him in the dead soggy leaves unless he had whiskey running through his veins Willard came to the clearing every morning and evening talk to God. Arvin didn't know which was worse the drinking or the praying. As far back, as he could remember, it seemed that his father had faulted devil all the time. Arvin little with the damp pulled his Co. tighter. He wished he were still in bed even school with always miseries was better than this but it was a Saturday and there was no way to get around it. Through the mostly bare trees beyond the cross Arvin could see whisper smoke rising from a few chimneys, half a mile away four hundred or so people lived in, knock him stiff in nineteen, fifty seven nearly all of them connected by blood through one godforsaken clam or another be it lust were necessity or just plain ignorance along with the tar paper shacks and Cinder Block houses the Holler included two general stores and a Church of Christ in Christian Union and joint known throughout the township as the bullpen. Three days before he'd come home with another black I I, don't condone no fighting just for the hell of it but sometimes, you're just too easy going Willard told him that evening then boys might be bigger than you. But the next time one of them starts his stuff, I want you to finish it. Willard was standing on the porch changing out of his work clothes. He handed Arvin Brown pants stiff with dried blood and Greece. He worked in a slaughterhouse in Greenfield and that day sixteen hundred homes had been butchered a new record for RJ Carol meat-packing. Those boy didn't know yet what he wanted to do when he grew up he was pretty sure he didn't WanNa kill pigs for eleven. Let's Donald Ray pollock reading from his new novel, the Devil, all the time. You know in the reading that you did the father tells the sun that the next time. So many beats him up the sun has to fight back and that seems to be. A recurring theme like in the opening story of your collection of short stories, the collections called knock him stiff. The opening sentence reads my father showed me how to hurt a man one August night at the torch in when I was seven years old it was the only thing he was ever any good at. You certainly seem interested in the idea of a father. Kind of indoctrinating a sun on the need to fight back and then egging on to do it even when it's inappropriate. so was is this a story that played out in your life? Well, not so much in my life I. Mean as far as I don't my dad really didn't push me to fight or anything like that. But you know when I was growing up my father and I had a very Uneasy relationship. You've got to understand my dad was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty he's still alive. You know he's eighty years old and he's still kicking but He was born in. Nineteen thirty grew up in the depression I went to the eighth grade. He was working on the railroad by the time he was sixteen, and then he was in the navy. And, my dad is a very tough. Hard. man Stra very strong man. As and in contrast to that, my mother is very shy kind. Small Bone woman. and. Either fortunately or unfortunately for me, I took after my mother and I believe. When I was a kid, my dad was. Maybe disappointed for not taking after him more. So. You know that's where I guess part of that comes from it and part of it also comes from. Lived in stiff. That's where I grew up and I saw a lot of other fathers who were you know drinkers and hell raisers and they didn't treat their families very well You know maybe they went and worked for a while and. I got enough money to go on another band or whatever, and pretty much left the family to take care of themselves. So, yeah father's have a pretty rough time and my work I just. It's just. You know I'm a father. You know I have a daughter WHO's I'm thirty years old now and I have always felt that I. Wasn't. As good as I could have been. Her mother and I were divorced when she was very young she was like a year old and and I wasn't around that much and. That's probably the best explanation. I can give for why treat father's like I do my work. Were you bullied in school. You said you, you took after your mother who wouldn't hurt a fly. So and if you were bullied, would you fight back? Did you know how to actually I wasn't bullied in school I? Never really had any problems with that and yeah, I. Mean a would fight back if I had to but. That situation you know didn't come about very much probably you know just. No more than any other normal kid you know might face that sort of thing. But. Yeah. I mean I wasn't really interested in Working on cars or farm or anything like that was more of A. I won't call myself a bookworm because we really didn't have that many books but you know I like to read and watch old movies and drawl and stuff like that and My Dad. Just you know he's a very practical man I mean, even today you know his idea of success is. Owning your own farm, starting your own business or something like that and I know that he probably looks on what I'm doing now is. A pretty useless way to spend your life trying to write books. Would you describe what the town of knock him stiff was like when you were growing up well, when I was growing up there it was. You know relocated for us. Ok we'll knock him stiff. is about thirteen miles west of chillicothe Theo, which is you know southern Ohio. It was its own little place. You know there wasn't much else around there but it was a community There were three small general stores and a bar and a church, and probably four hundred, fifty, five, hundred people now I probably was related to. At least half those people. So did you find this nurturing being in a town where half the people in it were related to you or incredibly claustrophobic? I think when I was a kid when I was a kid I was claustrophobic for me. You know I was one of those kids I was always unsatisfied I always wanted to be. Else and somewhere else. And so from a very early age. You know I was thinking about escaping from the hauler. I just Thought that I'd rather be somewhere else are somewhere else. But where you are as in Chile coffee which is. PHILADELPHIA, which is about thirteen miles away like you got out but you didn't go very far. I, really didn't get out I mean that's the weird contradiction of that whole thing you know i. Wanted to escape and them what I finally got my chance or whatever I. I chose to stay I'm out at knock stiff at least once a week even today Ladder parents go to visit. My parents are still alive. You know I have a brother and two sisters and they all live fairly close to there and So I. Think though as far as escape goes what happened with me was I quit high school when I was seventeen. And I went to work in a meat packing plant much like Weller work, Dan? And then when I was eighteen I moved to Florida you know that was going to be I was going to get away that you know by moving to Florida and I was down are working a job in a nursery and I wasn't making much money or anything only been there a few months my dad called and said. Hey, I can get you a job at the paper mail if you come back up here so. I chose to come back. You know the paper Mills Calling it was union job and great benefits and. And I knew you know for a high school dropout that was probably going to be the best job I. Ever got. You had that job for. How many years did you work at the paper mill? I? was there thirty two years and you didn't start writing till you were around fifty or is that is fifth well I'm fifty six now and I started writing when I was forty five. Okay. So how come it took so long did you know? When you weren't writing did you know that you had that in you? Well. You know I'd always been a big reader as I said and I love books. And I think maybe in the back of my mind, you know always thought writing would be a great way to get by in the world and you know, of course, I was very naive about it. The principal reasons for me you know as far as being a writer were one, you were your own boss. To you could do it anywhere. And three, you made lots of money. Wasn't until actually began writing it. I found out. That was a real true. But I. Think you know Sorta like maybe a fantasy that? It was in the back of my mind for a long time. I had a problem with drinking and for a number of years and you know it was one of those fantasies that when you got half loaded and You started daydreaming or whatever it was. One of those things that you thought about right thought about. But it wasn't really. You know I went to school when I was in my thirties I went to college I went to Ohio University and I ended up with a degree in English and You. Know even while I was there though I wasn't thinking about being a writer I never took any writing workshops or anything like that. But then finally when I was forty five my dad retired from the paper mill. And there was just something about watching him retire and go home. and. You know that was you know pretty much the end of his career and it really. Bothered me and I. Just. decided. I had to try something else you know. To some other way to. Spend the rest of my life. So. When you decided, you wanted to learn how to write what did that mean? Any. Writers or anything in for a while I just sort of scribbled and struggled. And then I'd read an interview with a writer and I can't recall her name now or no it was a lady. But she talked about typing out other people's stories as a means of maybe getting closer to them or just learn how to put a story together. and. So I started doing that. Who did you type out? I typed out a lot of different stories I. I was typing out a story at least once a week and that went on for about a year and a half. So John. cheever hemingway. Flannery. O'Connor Richard. Yates Dennis Johnson the you know the list just goes on and on if it was a story that I really liked and it wasn't. Long I, type it out, and then I carry it around with me for a week and you look at over and you know jot notes on stuff like that, and then I'd throw it away and do another one. Typing a story out, just was a much better way for me to see how you know person puts dial together or you know. Moose from one scene to the next that sort of thing. Was it hard for you to find your subject matter as a writer? Well when I first started. Trying to learn how to write. As. I said like maybe I would copy out John cheever story. So then I would try to write my own story about some East Coast suburbanite having unfair. Something like that or maybe I'd write about a re Rita Andrei debut story, and then I'd write about a Catholic priest. and. So I did that for maybe two years or so and it just wasn't working at all for me. and. Then filing maybe at about two and a half years, I wrote a story that's included in the book. Knock him stiff called back teen. And it's a very short story. and. It's about these two losers sitting in a donut shop. And that was the first thing that I had. Written that I thought wasn't too bad. And so then I increasingly started focusing on you know the people that I knew about instead of nurses, lawyers, that sort of thing that I had absolutely no idea. How to write about There's a passage in your new novel that's about a bus driver and the bus drivers father had gotten a certificate from the railroad for not missing a single day of work in twenty years and bus drivers. Mother always held this up as like what you could do. If you really you know were strive and tried to accomplish something when the bus drivers father died the bus driver hope that that certificate would be buried with his father's. We didn't have to look at it anymore, but instead his mother just like. Put It on the wall, display it in the living room. And then the bus driver thinks it wore on you after a while other people's accomplishments. I love that sentence did you ever feel that way I mean he kochman here seems. So relatively small like a good attendance record and not to knock that. But for that to be like, you know the zenith of somebody's life is. You. but did you feel that way that a war on you? Other People's accomplishments? I don't think that I paid so much attention to other people's. Successes or whatever. But I, know that I was aware you know by the time. I was thirty two or so and I've been working at the mail for about fourteen years. And I knew that all the guys that I had come in with you got hired about the same time as mayor guys even much later than that. You know they own their own home. Maybe. They owned a boat and they had two or three vehicles and they were married and had kids and on and on and on. You know in contrast to them. I've been divorced twice. I'd filed bankruptcy when I got sober I was living in this little very small apartment above this garage. Of. Motel Room and I've been living there for about. Four or five years. I owned a black and white TV that my sister had given me and I had this seventy six chevy that had the whole side of smashed in and that was it. You know for fourteen years of working there. That's what I had. And so you know there was that sense I guess of me just being a failure. Wasn't really that I wasn't jealous of those people or anything like that. I, mean I had enough sense to know that you know where I ended up was my own fault. But there was always that that idea in back of my head that. I could have done more you know I could maybe went to college or something you know. I'm sure you know if I'd wanted to go to school when I was eighteen, my dad would try to help me. and. That's not the route that I chose though how has your life changed? Now as a published writer, you have a collection of short stories. You have a new novel you got a thirty five thousand dollars cash prize, the pen, Robert Bingham Award. So, what's different about your life? well, I have a lot more time to just set on the porch and. Smoke and daydream. Think it's a legitimate. Yeah well, at least that's what I tell my wife. But my life hasn't really changed that much I. Mean I get a lot more emails. Now you know that sort of thing, but you know I still live in the same house I still pretty much. You know my daily routine is. I really can't say that it's changed that much. It's a good life and I'm thrilled that you know I've got a publisher and. You know had at least a little bit of success. You know I know a lot of writers out there a lot of writers out there who are much better than I am. And would. Probably give their left arm. To be setting, you know where I'm setting today. Well Donald Ray, pollock thing you so much for talking with us. Terry I appreciate. It. Made my day. Donald Ray pollock speaking to Terry Gross in twenty eleven. The devil all the time a new movie based on his novel of the same name.

"This is Eric calling from Madison Wisconsin in various types of legal proceedings. You're different standards. Sometimes here beyond a reasonable doubt sometimes you hear The preponderance of the evidence. I'm just wondering in an impeachment proceeding Which of those or is there some other standard? That's appropriate. And is that really determined. Thank you so eric. I've been thinking about this a lot and I think it's an issue that has not gone as much attention as you might have expected to in criminal cases like I oversaw for years that are very specific standards forgetting a search warrant probable cause forgetting an indictment in the grand jury probable cause to convict at trial proof beyond a reasonable doubt in civil cases. There's a standards preponderance of the evidence as you mentioned. And that's very important so that the finder of fact or the judge depending on the case knows exactly how to apply the facts and knows exactly what the threshold is to determine liability or not liability or guilt versus no guilt. So it's an interesting thing. It's reason number. Four hundred sixty eight. Why this impeachment and subsequent trial although vaguely analogous to a criminal proceeding is actually very very different? I have not seen and maybe some impeachment scholars can correct me on this. I'm not seeing any articulated. Standard of proof either either for impeachment or conviction in the Senate. There's not in the constitution. The constitution provides the entire and sole basis for the impeachment power of the Congress which is why all sorts of questions ends with respect to how the evidences received what kind of evidence can be received with the overall rules are those are decided by the body itself the Senate itself now. I've seen an argument made lead by some people including by a representative Justin. Amash I think is dead on with respect to a lot of his analysis and he has urged his colleagues in the house to vote in favor of impeachment analogize thing that impeachment is just a set of allegations. Just an indictment like you would have an ordinary criminal case and the threshold for that is probable cause that a crime was committed and it was probably done by the person that is named in the indictment and he says look that low burden of proof that low threshold has been met in the case of Donald Trump and Ukraine. And while well he's technically correct there as I've said before and as I observed when I was in office and his I think I wrote about in my book. Prosecutors don't march into the grand jury if they have just a shade above probable cause because they know that the case is not over then then they have to take the case to trial in front of a jury where the burden of proof is much much higher and I think prosecutors is worth their salt and who are responsible. Think ahead to how it's going to go a trial and not willy nilly run into the grand jury every time they have one tiny iota of evidence of puts it just beyond and above the threshold or probable cause so not sure I agree with. Justin Marshall's analogy there. But putting that aside I actually think there's overwhelming proof that the president commuted high crime or misdemeanor. Then we get to the question of what the standard should be in the Senate in. I don't know that it's beyond a reasonable doubt. I think some people will argue that particularly those who WanNa vote to acquit the president. And say there's a lack of clarity and also you don't have proof beyond a reasonable doubt. There is some doubt as to the motives of the president the intent of the President Bill Point to other aspects of testimony that put into some doubt what I think are clear conclusions and others think are clear conclusions but again this is not just a constitutional legal process. It's also a political process and the senators can essentially choose to vote how they want and whether it's based on conscience because they think the president has abused his power and obstructed Congress or their vote is based on expedient political reasoning because they don't want to incur the ire of the president resident. That's up to them so like you. I look forward to seeing how people apply what standards this question comes from twitter from twitter user. Rational final person. I like the handle in the unlikely event. Donald Trump is impeached by the Senate is allowed to still run for office in two thousand Twenty Hashtag. Ask preet so rational person I think you meant to say is in the unlikely that he is convicted in the Senate not impeachment happens in the House Kenney Still Run for office in twenty twenty well in the unlikely event that that happens happens and it is based on the articles of impeachment that had been drawn up the answers provided by the last tents in the draft articles of impeachment that directly bear on this president's ability to be office in the future and literally the last sentence of the articles of impeachment read us follows quote President Trump thus warrant impeachment and trial removal from office and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor trust or profit under the United States. So this is the language on which the president is impeached and then thereafter convicted in the Senate. It would be a bar on him running in two thousand twenty or any year there after. I looks like it would also be a bar on his being appointed to any the position of trust which is most positions in the United States federal government and also would bar him. I think from running for House or Senate. This question comes from twitter user. Bob Collie who asks couldn't House Dem's pursue court cases for access to witnesses docks while moving forward with hearing slash impeachment seems like an important president to establish force of how subpoenas Hashtag asprey yet like. I think this is a point of debate and Malcolm Welcome and I have discussed this. Very question on the CAFE INSIDER PA and I've discussed it with other friends of mine and I think that the house dams were in some ways between a rock and a hard place you know I have worried for awhile. That there's additional information is being left on the table while they proceed with great speed to impeachment and then trial in the Senate but there is a clock. Election isn't far away and sometimes sometimes these proceedings can get bogged down and Adam Schiff in announcing the articles of impeachment this week mid a pretty good case for why you don't wait. He pointed specifically to the ongoing Litigation Gatien relating to Don mcgann testimony and took eight months for them to get a decision on it. Now that doesn't directly answer your question of why not proceed now and then in parallel try to get that other testimony and see see what happens with it and I think. There's a reasonable argument for that. No I might have done it that way. But it is kind of awkward to proceed with impeachment trial and had that be concluded and then three months after sure that had a litigation be resolved in your favor perhaps and all of a sudden you can take the testimony of someone like John Bolton you know what the hell are you GonNa do with that at that point and this. This is not a great legal response with a little bit of awkwardness in suddenly having that happen it also by the way doesn't allow closure and I think there's a reason why both Democrats and Republicans want thirty an endpoint to all of this so it just seems like an odd situation to be in an odd world to be in with impeachment. Accomplished the trial accomplished. And you still have have seven cases winding their way through the courts with Spector testimony. That was needed in connection with those things. That are now already done. It's a little odd and I don't blame the dams for the preceding this way Although there's reasonable basis to done it the other way round sallies are they standing. That is I stand for you. They did not they. They.

I think you can make an argument we really don't hundred yards passing you're doing something right you're sure but I find this part of the niners in Garoppolo fascinating where Belgium ballot check at the time there was a lot of people who wanted Jimmy Garoppolo and legit gave him to the niners he wanted to put them in a good spot with a good coach sure because he like Jimmy and I think that's the guy he wanted to go forward with Jimmy instead of Tom Brady BELZEC was wrong on that by the way but if indeed that was the case but I'm like that is fascinating to me that he could have gotten a lot more than a second round pick for Jimmy Garoppolo and he just handed them to the forty niners well it seems like if they were going to get a team that is in your conference Oh by the way a team that unceremoniously fired you eighteen years ago or twenty years ago from the time of the trade like that can be the kind of thing that really it does impact you directly Jimmy Garoppolo I don't think it's become a star yet for the forty niners he may become one put the bowel check and the belt and the Patriots like the niners are sort of out of sight out of mind absence one game of four years and potentially a super bowl matchup which although the two undefeated teams like I still think a lot of tells fans bills the only show that stars Dr Pepper put the spotlight on fans and perfectly captures the emotional rollercoaster that is the college football season critics are saying it's good fantastic is anyone else thirsty and literally the best thing since Diet Dr Pepper and Dr Pepper Cherry in Fans Ville Dr only deliciousness of college football fan this fall on fans Ville presented by Dr Pepper so pullover via rights slant left do you gotta do to get your local store got some refreshing ice cold Dr pepper the official drake of fans villain hey while you're at it don't be afraid to go for too.

"Drafted. I amongst defenses rarely does a defense separate itself from the rest of the league that justifies that investment it just just honestly honestly other than i i'd say between that and taking a player that like maybe retired last year or is already out for the season that right there is the number one faux pas on fantasy field predict nick from me this year's patrick mahomes the guy who's amid round <hes> fantasy pick but who ends up having a top ten fantasy season yeah. I don't know if anybody is going to be certainly mahomes as you know fifty touchdowns. That's just incredible. It's only happened three times and the n._f._l.'s ninety nine previous season but i would say it. Carson wentz seems to be the trendy just because personally went has all the weapons you need. He plays for you know. He's a very talented player. We've seen it like we have seen carson. Wentz is be one of the best players and football <hes> prior to this year. You know health seems to be largely an issue the past <hes> healthy right now the rest of the eagles quarterbacks that are not healthy okay which is why josh mccowan already back in the n._f._l. I think carson wentz a lot of stars have aligned for him to have a massive breakout season. We're talking to field yates then. We're just going to ask him fantasy football questions because that's what we want to do and <hes> feel. I saw somewhere where i think i saw this or maybe it was just click bait. I'm not sure where patrick mahomes was on a do not draft lists like what is there any sort of question mark or or hesitation when it comes to patrick mahomes you love your laminate. What is that because. I think it's only fair to the writer of that. The author of that article which care about and do not draft and it's always based on where a player is being selected so not taking patrick mahomes. That's already saying of course patrick mahomes. He's unbelievable player. It's just where he is being drafted right. Now which is seventeenth overall is that's eight like a massive massive premium to pana- quarterback <hes>. We actually had this conversation on our podcast earlier today because we were previewing the teeth. Is that if you think patrick mahomes at a quarterback quarterback that's fine if you take him. That's actually encourage you should be doing but if you take him where he's going on average right now which is <hes> pick six seven teen what you are accounting for is not just patrick mahomes being the best quarterback in fantasy. You need him to be like basically basically what he was last year several inter deviations better than the rest of the quarterbacks in the n._f._l. This year to justify that pick you can't just be the number one quarterback. He's got to be the number one quarterback. Ah mile again. It's not that can't happen it. Just you know using the body of evidence that we have of quarterbacks and possible regression like even if patrick mahomes throws thirty eight touchdown baz next year that could very well be the best in the n._f._l. And still less than last year so there's a little bit of risk taking on the seventeenth takeover all all right. Let's get down to brass tacks in field. Yates is most important fantasy league. When is the earliest that he would take patrick mahomes. You know at uh another great question that reared itself today. Earliest would be <hes> probably the fourth round from the top of the fourth round <hes> and we we use all the usual <hes> <hes> caveats of like hey it's <hes> you know it depends on how many teams playing with the scoring rules but like a ten team league where touchdowns announce count for four points in a passage is passing touchdown. I think the top of the foreground is about right for me feel. How do you feel about the strategy of pairing up. Teammates mate's on your fantasy team in other words. If i get michael thomas it's smart for me to get drew brees as well yeah. I what i tell people in that is it. It's less about trying to compare teams..

"You've got four hundred thousand twitter followers. He's only got like thirty something but you know he's more like baseball soccer guy. You're the n._f._l. Guy how'd you guys get along. You know. Most people don't realize that we're actually brothers just just different things no seriously <hes> you know then it was great. We've always enjoyed working together. I would say oh. You're accurate your description. There is in that we are quite dissimilar <hes> and so many ways but we actually ran a back on a couple of occasions last week on radio which is a lot of fun and <hes> idiots like the <hes> you know the balance right. It's like the opposite attract or something of that nature because it seemed at least in the eyes of those who decide on how to stack each radio show when the regular hosts route that they enjoyed it. At least we hope by the way the scared looks on everybody's faces on the other side when i said that you guys are polar opposites as if i was going to say something terribly terribly racist is absolutely ridiculous guys. I'm better than that. Okay field my drafting zeke elliott in my dance. Yes you are and here's the good news is that i think right now. If you draft ezekiel elliott they'll probably end up with a little bit of a discount mt elliott if he's if he's if he was here right now and healthy and there were no qualms concerns about the possibility of missing games you can make a case for him as the number one pick and fantasy football this season so right now yeah. You're not going to be able to drop them number. One overall because you're going to have to wait a little bit 'cause no one's gonna do that for a player and is currently as it was training camp. You might get them closer to pick five or pick seven and that would represent a significant bargain and a player that could end up being the player that windsor your lead. I think the cowboys zeke find find some middle ground here. There seems to be significant amount of <hes> traction relative to melvin gordon right. I mean i'm not saying that these deals going to be done or close or anything of that nature but doesn't it feel like for all of the quiet that we're hearing on the melvin gordon front. We're hearing the opposite right now with the but i think zeke elliot stay for play oh by far than gordon and just generally speaking a worthwhile investment thing football. I wanna talk some draft etiquette now. As far as when i'm at a live draft with all my friends on the hierarchy of mock worthy things that people can do is there anything higher than a guy or gal that takes their defense or kicker before the final two rounds. I can mock that every time right. It always always always bothers me and defense. I will definitely see go a couple of rounds sooner and kickers. Maybe the second to last round just feels really nonsensical to me guys and you know fantasy football. <hes> we do a lot of the projections shing through sort of analytics and a variety of stats that we have and yes some of them are not don't necessarily portend in the future right. I mean guys can be poor for one year. In great the next year or vice versa that being said there is so much evidence that taking a defense early is just basically burning pick because first of all it's really hard to predict defensive football and fantasy and second of all even the very best defense outside like total outlier like the bears last year who by the way nobody drafted..

"Does it need to get healthy before like we could even entertain this conversation. Here's what i'll say to that. I do think as you probably. You've you know this. You're around these guys. I think a lot of players kind of believe they're the ones who can fix it and you can kinda saw lebron do that with the heat to an extent right they were always bringing in these projects and i think players of of lebron davis caliber. Just have this belief that you bring it. Bring us a guy. We know talented and we can probably get the best out of him. I think that's probably the conversation. They're having themselves right. Now you know again. You just compared to the options if you're going to lebron with andrew bogusch dwight howard him no. I'll tell you know took him no all right. I just think they'd they'd probably look at someone who had a little potential. You know they'd probably go back team u._s._a. U._s._a. stuff like that they probably just see him someone with that little extra potential <hes> that they think we we can bring that out of them. We can kind of get back out they'd him. It's funny. I do think the guys in the league sometimes fall in love with the big names of a little bit more with the media. Does i mean you saw it with carmelo to an extent last year right and the rockets fell like they could get that extra ounce of town out of hand so i would look at it as kind of a situation to that but i don't disagree. Listen man two quite is a character. There's no doubt about it and it's not like bringing would fix all their problems. He also is going to have to accept the role that he's just never been willing to accept rohan. It's it's it's weird to me that one of the most written off teams right now seems to be the golden state warriors and and for me that's ludicrous. I think in a wide open n._b._a. The warriors should still still be considered a championship contender. Do you or do you think it's a rough year ahead for them. I think it's gonna be a little rough t._c. I i do think that when clay comes back they're going to be in good shape. I i do think eventually they're going to trade diangelo russel. I i don't see them playing klay steph and dangelo together her long-term. I i do think eventually gonna trade him but i'm with you i. I don't think they should be written off. Steph has the potential to have a great year. The serum really high on him. I think he's gonna be in the m._v._p. Conversation that's something that that i'm willing to say. I just don't know that they're gonna be championship contender level. I think it's gonna take some time. Clay has to recover i. I need some more balanced roster chris. I gotta ask you in front of both of these gentlemen. Has anybody else in his life called greg g. c. Is that a nickname no. He's way too old for that nickname did you. I haven't called them by others over and by the way i know that there's been some you know radio shenanigans the splash reshuffling and florida recently and i'm sure this show is still doing really well. I just want to say my mom texted me mid phone call to say she she hasn't heard me yet. She's hopes he's listening to the right show <hes> she needs to turn over to the joe because locally we used to be on seven ninety in our on five six. Yeah i see okay joe on at the center the podcast row hand if hey if your mom doesn't come through for you we can now. We'll get you a copy of the interview. Don't worry about it there. We go there. We go. I appreciate it. Thanks real hand really appreciate them. In care guys.

"Getting hurt now is clearly the one injury you couldn't get away with it just kind of makes it reinforces the sort of thinness of this roster overall and how questionable this because they seem like some people to favorites and yet you know one or two little tweaks and all of a sudden this team is is pretty thin yeah without a doubt. They're very thin. That's definitely something that stands out kind of immediately they have. I think a decent closing five you know if if they commit to playing davis at center down the stretch of regular season games. They're going to have a final five that can compete with anyone in the league. I think what's going to hurt them. During the regular their season is can they go eight or nine. What are they gonna do when they have an injury in the rotation and you're already seeing that bear out right now where they lose someone like cousins and at first. You're like okay well. He wasn't expected too much well. You still have to play someone at center forty eight minutes a night and they just kinda don't have that right now. So you know it makes sense that they're audrey looking at all their options <hes> they're. They're definitely masoom. Rohani carney from sports illustrated talking to a couple of miami herald legends here in there's a couple of intriguing names <hes> in terms of possible replacements or possible signings for them <hes> or pickups and that includes both joachim noah and dwight howard. What can you tell us about those possibilities in which one seems seems more realistic in which one's more intriguing. I joined is obviously more intriguing. Let's not beat around the bush me. If i mean it would be hilarious if he resigned with the lakers for a lotteries season on the dwight stuff. I'm hearing pretty realistic. I mean i heard that you know one of l._a.'s. <hes> you know the coaching staff. I think it's been looking into this for a little while now once once. They knew that demarcus was hurt. It does make sense. I mean i i just wrote about this for us. I don't think the articles up yet but in reason white dwight makes sense for the lakers he's in the same boat as cousins where it's high risk high reward or low risk cairo because because you know you're signing about minimum deal. You're not expecting them to be you know a big time stars or anything like that but he just has a little bit more potential than some of the other names on the market you can bring in zaza pachulia and he'll play defense for twenty minutes a night. You know and do some things that's out of truly does between howard. There's a hint a hope uh-huh potential that he might be able to give you something slightly more on offense and defense and that's all you bring them in. I mean you know worst case you can cut him. You can you can always find and <hes> a rotational center. There are guys available right now but dwight just has that tiny extra bit of potential <hes> which is why it's worth taking a risk on him even if he's gonna make part jokes and and try to blow up your locker room row in this off season is has fascinated me because i think it's left a wide open n._b._a. Much more so than usual where there isn't necessarily a a heavy favourite there there might be eight or even nine teams thinking. You know what this could be the year where we win at all. How do you see in the big picture <hes> where the n._f._l. N._b._a. is right now in terms of competitiveness. Oh i you know i've been talking about this. People all summer into whether it's uber drivers by friends. I think it is probably the first time in a decade the n._b._a. Felt this wide open. I mean starting with lebron signing with the heat. It always felt like there was a a big team. A big bad big super villain that was going to be the.

"Bacon double stack in the five dollar biggie eggy bag with four piece nuggets mall fry and drink only at vacant fest when he got chris in the league world series a player from venezuela crouch crouched down in the box making literally the smallest strikes. Don't pop possible now. It didn't really work because the pitch came in at i level and the umpire heart called it a strike so i guess the strike zone doesn't change if you crouch like that but it was still a good idea by him. It was such a good idea that we seem to imitate it on sunday by doing the same exact thing in the box but stroke outlook right. I don't even know if that's true. I don't know if you guys are aware aware of this but <hes> bill walton is the best and last friday bill walton because of some scheduling conflict or whatever the white sox who walton was in the white sox booth youth calling an angels white sox not just because he just showed up possible to did the entire game and we have like a hundred billion cliffs cbs but i'm gonna play one clip.

"How you have no idea how nothing works in here because i'm sitting here i wanna tell you but i kinda just want to see it play <music> out because when i'm talking to you guys in the back and so this is a we're not on t._v. Right now it's a normal radio studio. You got the microphones on one side and you've got the board on the other deciding about a bunch of people on the other side of the glass that they can't hear you right unless you're pressing a certain button to speak to them yeah so when i'm pressing said button and then you randomly talking to your microphone that's not good enough. You've got the hit the button as well so almost every word that you have said this shipping container they have not heard a single word of oh really really and then during the breaks he doesn't really know or when we're coming back doesn't know when the mics are on or how to speak to you roy so he is whispering right before we get on the microphone even though none of our mike ceron and you cannot hear him you'll have this wasted breath. I mean roy did teach me me too to look for the on button lights up all right. Did you yeah i know you didn't because they were still off and we and we still kind of treat him like he's a nubia this. He's he's been doing radio now for. I think what six or seven years and i think that's where dan's frustration comes in right. It's like i mean if it was the first year maybe and even in this chair i get it totally different share. There are buttons next you that weren't there before he is like this in every part of his life though when he goes to restaurants he's been to one hundred time he asked his wife. What do i like here. Do yet know how to turn on your such a move. You just pretend to not know how to do anything especially the older you are and you've got your family emily doing everything for you. You just pretend not to know anything or you. Don't even pretend you just don't pick up anything. Do you know how to turn on your t._v. At home <hes> i know how to press the on button button but then if a certain screen comes up that has a menu honored or something i'm not sure how to navigate away from that but <hes> the occasional blue screen yeah like that is it's a mystery you guys sink controls or do you have like ten controls around and you're not that's above my pay grade that question so you have won control of multiple remote control. I feel like like we have a hundred and fifty t._v. Once in our house if he wants yeah greg have you ever spoken into a remote control. When you laugh the real thing yes they have microphone honestly press a button and just talk into the mic talking to the remote control and you can get whatever show that you want. That's insane and that is are you guys all in on all of that because i'm very hypocritical when it comes to that so i will talk into like a comcast for control and i'll try to get the channel or whatever i'm trying to watch but right. I'm very against and i know that this is going to come back and buy maybe because alexis running the world blake. I'm not a fan of like alexa like just sitting in my house hearing when we talk and all of that stuff so like i will not talk into a fire stick and i will go out of my way to look for old fire. Six don't have like alexa compatibility because i don't want on alexa recording my no one else makes me nervous. I've had other people unlock my theory with their voice trying to sound like me.

I went and it's like nope. Are you serious exactly yeah well. Series probably actually angry with me because of the fact that i've turned her off so now she knows that i said no no no.

If you have like a dried up lake read one where you see the odyssey was like blood in it and you freak out about it a little bit like y a wire no no <hes> no. I don't freak out about the blood and mucus like <hes> should the drug store was mort. Was that the owner of the drug store. You're in a family guy. Every time i hear blood and mucus i think of him saying it in his voice but no i don't freak out about that. Why do you think you're dying. Do you think there's cancer <hes>. Do you think there's like like a serious disease. Whenever there's blood in there i mean yeah when blood appears in places. I don't think blush appear. I get a little bit concerned.

Yeah yeah speaking of dark turns antonio brown's situation in los angeles and sorry in oakland <hes> <hes> it is funny. We've had for those who don't know he's he's back on the helmet issue again eight couldn't find one apparently yet <hes> that was made within the last ten years that has the brand that that he that he wants and needs in his comfortable with and he wasn't in practice and we have this glorious piece of sound from mike mayock who's the g._m. <hes> and i couldn't imagine a worse hair hair of people <hes> in terms of being in touch with the new age player today than jon gruden and mike mayock but after not appearing in practice mike mike mayock finally decided he was going to take the hard stance on antonio brown <hes> you'll know that a be not your today right so here's the bottomline he's upset about the helmet issue <hes>. We have supported that. We appreciate that okay but we've at this point we've pretty much exhausted did all avenues of relief so from our perspective. It's time for him to be all in. We're all out okay so we're hoping hoping he's back soon. We got eighty nine guys busting their tails. We are really excited about where this franchise is going and we hope a._b. Is going to be a big part part of it starting week one against denver and a story no question absolutely perfect like scripted to the t. for g._m. From like nine hundred eighty five like everything about it so he starts off bottom line. This is about the helmet bottom line boom done. Hey we support. That appreciated aided even support. Let's say oh the company line. Is we appreciate it okay. Let's move on from that. We've done our part. He gives you the all in all out sneaky good part hard about this one doing this and training camp. They're eighty nine guys out there busting their butts not fifty two not during the regular season eighty nine almost double that and then it's end of story no questions right now. I have a lot of questions actually like a lot of questions that that's not his right to say end of story no questions it's. It's a great sound bite but it's where you inevitably. We're going to be with antonio brown now and it's such a weird situation for antonio because you know he didn't want want to have to be put in this situation. We're now. He's got to be the guy that says okay great now. I have to be the guy who against my team right because he put his g._m. In the position to say these things so now i have to be like okay. It's either me or the team and he puts you in that position. I don't think antonio cares at off.

He hasn't unwanted m._m._a. Fight now since november of two thousand sixteen were approaching three years since his last victory so <hes> he needs to start getting things back in order because he's still young and <hes> it would be a real shame if all this kind of goes down the drain because of some of these incidents outside of the cage ariel as e._s._p._n.'s resident toronto raptors fan. I'm curious your thoughts on just them winning the title and colli leaving. Oh well thank you for that question. <hes> i do fancy myself somewhat of an m._b._a.

And then some i hope and pray that when he comes back back for his first game in toronto that he's not booed i would build a statue in his honor. They would not want without him. I don't begrudge him for wanting to go home. I don't think the raptors will obviously be as good as as as they were last year but i do think that there is a sort of mentality now ingrained after going through that even though he's not there that will lead them to be. Maybe a top five seed <hes> if you will. I don't think they're as good as the sixers or the bucks anymore but certainly there's still going to be a player at at <hes> at the top five in the eastern conference so i i don't. I don't hate eight on quiet. It was an incredible trade. I would do it again if i were messiah cheery and i think everyone in canada owes a debt gratitude for what he did for the country this past the spring and summer because it was really an incredible time the whole country <hes> really rejoice because of that and it was cool to see everyone comes together well.

I mean he showed up to the open workout. On wednesday smoking a joint the guys just a really special <hes> character in our sport so he looks like that and then he calls out your shows boy for him is vidal. Miami's own the three zero five zone for him. I was that's just a massive suffice. There are very few fights that headline of pay per view that aren't for belt and that's one of them that will be a huge deal for u._f._c. can get it done so i loved everything about it. It was great to see him back well. He said it would be for the baddest mother bleeper in the game belt. How much of a of a a draw with that fight beatty think it'd be huge. <hes> i think that it could do at the very least five hundred six hundred thousand paper views <hes> the pay per view structure is a little different. I won't get into the weeds on that for you guys but it has changed over the past few months but still made is just such a huge. I mean any video that we posted about him. Any interview anything like that just crush anything else on this card including the main event which was a great one between korean and mitch <hes> fanciful like he's a like figure in our sport and he marches to the beat of his own on drama and he says things like that <hes> fans is absolutely adore him and it's it's funny because like mazda has become sort of like the the the florida version of northern california version. You know nate had a great line in the post fight interview. He's a gangster but he's no west coast gangster and only get away with with saying things like this so i would would. I would love to see the fight because i want to build up. I wanna see the press conference. I wanna see the stare down and then i want to see the fight itself. I think it would be huge business for the sport. Well diaz vs mazda all would be delicious just for the build up right because these guys are both so mouthy supremely confident but but how would you see the fight actually going and by the way i love the word delicious interesting way of describing yes. I appreciate that <hes> you know. I suspect that this kind if i would be contested largely on the feet you know natives very good on the ground. He's a black belt. He's very proud of his digits skills <hes> but he's probably a little more proud these days days of his boxing and <hes> and mazda dollars a phenomenal boxer i. I'm sure you've noticed kinda grew up on the streets of miami fighting back yard on the clinical undercard of of timber slice <hes> backyard brawls. He is a classic brawler good on the ground as well but i don't think there will be many takedown attempts. I'm in this kind of played <hes> it would be largely <hes> it'd be largely dominated by the guy who's more aggressive on his feet. Were using boxing. Maybe a little kick boxing thing as well but it's just a fan friendly fights and i would love to see it five rounds only main events in the u._f._c. Our five rounds like h fight on saturday wasn't a fiber by a the three five minute around fight.

I'M WE'RE GONNA start the show today with some information about this show and another show that I will be a part of a soon some of you know this because of the announcement that nine eighty made yesterday but I've learned over the years that a lot of this stuff that comes out about media hires and firings. It's CETERA barely connects with most of you in the moment I get it. I'm in the media. I can't tell you how many times Erin is said to me. Hey did you see it at such and such just left this station or left this website and I usually look at him and say no didn't hear it <hes> so I know most have you are disconnected from it so for those of you that are in haven't heard <hes> I'm going back to nine. Eighty which I am very excited about. An opportunity was presented to me that made sense for me and a lot of what made sense about it was that I didn't have to give up this podcast. The podcast isn't going anywhere. <hes> this podcast venture has been a revelation in so many ways for starters. I feel so lucky that so many of you have have found it in listen to it. I did not know what to expect. When we launched this Erin in September you know right at the beginning? It was the Friday I think before the the redskins opener in Arizona I had no idea what to expect. The truth of the matter is I really didn't listen to podcasts. You know I listen to Tony's a few times. I knew it wasn't difficult to listen to a podcast but I thought it would be difficult difficult for a lot of people and I think it was <hes> but I had no idea what to expect and it turned out much better than I would have thought and really what anybody told me to really expect secondly I had no idea if could turn it into a business <hes> but I have been able to do that and that was a bit of a revelation I was told that if you get a certain number of listeners that you can monetize the audience with advertising and and that has worked out and has been real. It's been growing significantly <hes> certainly going into the summer <hes> and we we have a lot to look forward to with respect to the fall as well but I didn't know it. Could it could be a business <hes> I knew Tony was creating a business around it but that's Tony Tony's an international star with an international following. It's apples and oranges but <hes> that that was that was a good result of this because there was the possibility that I was going to watch this podcast and would have some listeners and I'd be able to do a sports talk show every day which I did not want to give up doing but I wouldn't be able to turn it into a revenue generating activity Eddie but we've been able to do that which is great and lastly you know reuniting with Tommy on this podcast has been my favorite part of the podcast.
