Washington releases RB Guice shortly after arrest
"In the National Football League today came from Washington Washington football team. Cutting ties with running back Darius Dice the Redskins, releasing a statement that they had released the running back just hours after he was arrested on a felony charge is one of the accounts of strangulation and this is a situation in the NFL. That is one that leaked. This does not want and when you're the Washington football team As I was still trying to get used to everything of saying that the not saying that the the nickname George, but just off seeing the Washington football team, there has been a lot going on with this organization and the in the the football team, making the Ah the immediate move to arrest to let go of various guys. Following his arrest earlier today. Yeah, that's one of them. You know You messed up, right? You really messed up. It is. It's pretty bad, like if the team is saying, all right, we're kind of cutting bait with you because he's still young. I mean, he basically has it played. He's been hurt his 1st 2 years in The league and the team under Ron Rivera is clearly saying we're going in a different direction. And then you go back on the heels off, which was which probably didn't allow the legal system to play out and say All right is the guilty is the innocent. Any of that is all of the allegations that had been hurled at the Washington franchise to begin with. There was the Washington Post article. I believe that came out talking about the sexual alleged Sexual harassment and misconduct inside of the organization. And now when there is a potential strangulation and domestic abuse or abuse in general Darius Guys, he didn't stand a chance. This is a This is a time when he was in the wrong place. Wrong Time had had been another franchise. They may have been a little bit more patient to see some of the facts come out. But after that, and the name a no way they're not taking Any negative press from anybody does not named Dwayne Haskins, you know, and and when we had John Middlecoff on last hour, just talking about the situation I don't see with with what you say with the injuries. With the the history And now with these latest, you know, following his arrest on the domestic violence charges, I don't see Darius guys being back in the NFL. I just I don't I don't think that I don't even think it's a situation. Well, maybe down line, it would have Tio. It would have to be that he gets exonerated on all charges that it is. Clear that he didn't do it like that's like that's the first thing, and then he's gonna have to go into camp on a minimum contract and prove his worth like He's gonna have to go to a work out to be a few running backs injured, but it's not gonna happen, Probably this season. It will be a next season kind of deal because he's got some legalities that are gonna have to play out which which We don't want to presume his guilt yet Mohr or his innocence for the poor for that bag, But You know, it's gonna have to wait for the dust to settle and with Antonio Brown. It took them a year to quote unquote investigate him and he was in professional purgatory, and he wasn't even facing legal charges. So who knows how long this will take?

The Pixel 4a is coming
"We just had soon are on the show. Was it two months ago? And we're like what's up pixels and he like we gotta make him. Good. Did he make him good. I mean he made he made one one. Good. So the Pixel for a has been announced and released viewed it bunch of a tear. Actually, the podcast of used one but because the Pixel for is late and we can talk about why it is really close to when we're assuming the pixel five is gonNA come out. So Google is like you know what? Yeah, we're making a pixel five. It'll be out here this fall also there's GonNa be a pixel for a five G. 'cause you know that's what you want. So they just announced all three phones at once just Bam per year of you reviewed the. We've not seen photos of the five. We have seen various and confusing leaks all summer and Chris you might actually have a better handle around this afar but a bunch of the early leaks for like this must be the pixel five. Am It's like well, no, there's actually the probably the pixel for five G. now, and then there's more yet more internal documents, even more pixels at a foldable pixel like later on down the line like it's a fiasco in Pixel rumor land. Super. Confusing I mean they had that league. I think it was last month there was a phone. It looks just like the four day but they said it was the five and people weren't sure. But then it seems like they might get rid of their face ID clone which I really actually liked on the pixel of four like to just walk away from that the thumb reader but I mean, yeah, no one's really quite sure it's going to look like even the four five G. might have new specs or a bigger screen or who knows who knows what the story is I mean it's there's there's just always confusion about what's GonNa Happen is GonNa have brightly colored plastic rectangle smug s Yes The four as a decidedly, not brightly colored plastic rectangle. Four, you reviewed it. So the big big new innovation in the Pixel Foray is they dropped fifty bucks off the price. So it to three hundred, fifty dollars, which is. Pretty big. It's a pretty big deal It's a hundred bucks less than these storage equivalent iphone se. To get one I WANNA see one, hundred, twenty, eight gigs and they just like. Got Everything as good as you can probably get it on a three hundred, fifty dollar phone like I. Wish it had a faster processor but we live in a world of android where qualcomm. If you want to get a good qualcomm processor, you gotta spend way too much money. So I got like, okay one that's got a pretty solid screen. It's it's got a hole punch. It's got the Pixel camera a Becca actually pointed out to me when we were talking to them, she asked if it had was the sensor Becca three sixty three. Yeah. Same Sensor as. The Pixel four and the Pixel three and the Pixel three they've been using literally like the exact same camera stack for like two years now. So it's great. It makes takes rate photos but they haven't pushed it much. I would love it. If you could select your software tuning on the Pixel who right if you buy a pixel for and like make this shit, look like the Pixel two that would make me very happy because I thought the Pixel two looked it was the most contrast in the most dramatic and they have veered towards looking more like the overtime. But I wish. I. Could just be like go back to that look I love that look the best because if they're using the same hardware, they should give you the choices software, right? Everyone is just looking at me like. I mean it's like it's like saying you should just get your choice of. Clutch on your Mustang like it gets tied. The thing. Okay. Versus automatic. Put Your Ninety seven clutch in Twenty fifteen I mean you don't WanNa do that but you can be retune in anyway. Keep going the pixel for we're not gonNA talk about mustangs fingerprint sensor on the back. It works great. It's got a headphone Jack. because. Apparently low and phones are the only phone's headphone Jacks Anymore Beca you holding one right now you're holding. I'm holding one right now and what I'll have to say about this is that I love this thing like it gave me everything I like about phones in twenty twenty like a big screen and it's slim and the batteries diesen but it kept the things that I also love about previous cones that I love a fingerprint sensor like a one on the back and I love a headphone Jack and I love the Pixel camera in its three hundred and fifty dollars, which is a pretty good pricing twenty twenty for a brand new phone. There's this. There's this meme out there. For him but like there's this idea out there that like Google was bored with android in the pixels reflection of its board on this phone feel like they're bored with it. Now I'm bored with Andrew. Debut. The one new features accessibility feature for software a IT'll do real time captioning phone calls but it doesn't record them and it doesn't put them on the Internet. So don't have your conspiracy theories thrown at me Breitbart. They wrote it up terribly anyway So that's like the one thing but that's coming other pixels. It's just like Google. So committed to keeping the pixel software like really clean and basic relative to the madness that happens on every other android phone that it can feel a little bit boring and their decision to be really like understated with their design. I think it's like they've got they've. got a little bit too far. It's been like, no, no this is this is the the android phone that isn't flashy. It's just like a phone and after a while like that message gets through that like. Made a phone. Okay. Like they want it to be utilitarian to the point where it's like become a little bit boring. Thank you. Go. Has has been so long burned by Sergey Brin. Coming into Google glass event. On a hang glider. That's a real thing that happened they. US In like one of the founders landed on sage on a hang glider glass is the future and that was their last big attempt to be splashy. In it completely backfired like in every possible way

Trump signs executive order that could ban TikTok and WeChat in 45 days
"President trump's threat to ban. TIKTOK is now a formal order. Trump signed two new executive orders to ban US companies from working with the Chinese parent companies for both the popular video sharing APP Tiktok, and the messaging APP we chat, the ban will go into effect. September. Twentieth is an American company does not by the APPS. First, the president cited national security concerns for the sweeping new restrictions, both APPS, are owned by Chinese companies and tensions between the US and China have continued to escalate. Trump argues the APPS. APPS give the Chinese Communist, party too much access to Americans data and the ability to run disinformation campaigns in the US. Still Tiktok has insisted that is not the case, and that data is not even stored in China to be clear cybersecurity experts have said, it's tough to know for sure one social media professor told USA Today if the Chinese government were to request Americans from Tiktok, the parent company by Dan would likely have no choice but to hand it over. So what would trump's ban really mean? There aren't many specifics out yet, but likely the APPS would no longer be available in apple or android APP stores as a start. Then end, the ban may never actually happen. Remember Microsoft is already confirmed. It's in talks to buy parts of TIKTOK and plans to decide before the orders deadline. Oh and also both executive orders are expected to be challenged in court since they're so unusual. In fact, the reports, it's still unclear if the president actually has the legal authority to enact the ban,
David Archer previews the Atlanta Falcons
"The Atlanta Falcons will do so with a former Falcons quarterback. Now he is their longtime color analysts on the radio network for Atlanta. And that is David Archer. David Hope all is. Well. Thanks for doing this. When we look at the Falcons, they made a big offseason acquisition getting Todd Gurley We don't know where the health is of Todd Gurley. What do you expect at a Todd Gurley coming over from l. A to Atlanta for this upcoming season? Well, be honest with you. I think we're expecting a lot of early and mainly in the Red zone. If you look at Todd Gurley's numbers, even with with so called quote unquote down near Around 900 yards rushing, still had 12 touchdowns. All 12 of those touchdowns came in the red Zone, and I think that Atlanta if they could find a way to run the football down close Help three up the talented weapons that Ryan has on the perimeter. Now, listen, you have a little bit more of a potent attack a little bit more looking a little bit more like what? You looked like a 16 when Avante Freeman and Tevin Coleman. We're carrying the ball down there close and created that problem in the run game. Atlanta has not had that over the last couple of seasons. I think that's where they expect Todd Gurley to make his main hey is down there in the red Zone. With the way that you probably have to manage his reps as a running back the rest of the running back room. Is there something that jumps out to you? Yeah, I think it's a good group. Really Do I think that when you look at Brian, Ill in the way, Brian Gillis Kamani together that Hawkins drafted a couple of years ago, Brian Handsome solid moments a year ago. Quadri Allyson. Kid at Pittsburgh rookie from a year ago. Uh, kind of woke himself. A little bit of a roll is a short yardage guy. Â£225 Goal line Guy, four touchdowns. Hopefully, you know, Smith can come back. He was injured in the game a year ago. I believe against the Rams in which he was trying to pick up a Blitzer, which he shouldn't be here should be doing, but he is an outstanding receiver out of the backfield. And a good change of pace back at the back, So they get to three young guys that I think you could lean on. And like you said, Take some of that. Load off. Assad, Girl. Let's get to the next down. And when we do so, we take a look at Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. The two big names in that organization. Do you still believe that this team could be a play off team once again with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones? I do, but it's you know, obviously, it's about you know your supporting cast and you do some things on the other side of the ball, and I'm sure there's a question you've got to worry about the defense's side the football, But there there's a little area in the offensive line. The left guard has been a little bit leaky, right guard's been a little bit leaky because of some injuries and things that they could shore up that into your part of the offensive line. Ryan's Like most classic quarterbacks climb in the pocket. They got to be able to give him that opportunity. Do so if you get into your pressure and accurate from problems, one game will help in that regard, but Yeah. Julio Jones, 16 seconds, 1300 yard seasons. Matt Ryan, nine consecutive 4000 yard seasons. I don't see the one those guys backing off. When you talk about that offensive line to follow up on that I'm a big fan of Matt Hennessy. Being a temple grad, really smart football player puts in a lot of work. Is he going to make an immediate impact in your number one? Yeah, There's always a question that he's certainly in the mix to be the starting guard. There's no question about that. I think that there's ah lot excitement around when he brings the table and and obviously the heir apparent, Alex Mack, probably its center. So Alex back in a little bit longer to still have a good football any But I need to put some guys around him that Khun taken, it could be in there and we had German Brown and James Carpenter guys that could not stay on the field. There was some solid moments from those two big veteran players, but they did not stay on the field and consistency. In the interior specialist that left guard spotted Kennedy ultimately will probably win that job and be the starter that guard let's get to the next down. All right, David Archer. When they flip the switch here and go to the other side of the ball defensively, it was an up and down year for the defense, but it seemed like they did finish in a better spot than what they did earlier on in the season. You could probably say that for the entire team with the Atlanta Falcons this division. Is loaded with offensive talent. You know what the Saints are. Now you have Tom Brady and the division with Tampa Bay, and I'll be curious to see what Teddy Bridgewater does with the Panthers. What's your read on the Falcons defense entering 2020 Well, it's an uncertain situation obviously went on God. Dante Fowler, Dad's pressure off the edge contact. McKinley realized what they thought they had when they drafted him a couple of years and the number one spot picked up Charles Haley, who, ironically, was in the same draft. And raided a route the same attack McKinley are Charles Harris. I'm sorry. Charles. Charles Charles Haley. Right way. I'd like to have the guy that was rushing the pastor there for both the Cowboys in the 40 Niners. That would be great, but Harris. He does have some raw talent there. Can't he realize that I'm the Falcon Tutelage will have to wait and see Grady dear. It's an emerging star in the tackle position and Marlon Davidson, Vienna and an interesting ad, a guy that has the versatility to play inside. Maybe in past situations and also play the perimeter as a 34 defensive didn't run down situations. The answer at all Burn second round draft pick of the fact that they think they've upgraded their defensive line. It'll have to be upgraded because you get extremely young secondary. Probably gonna have a rookie a corner starting your nickels, a second year guy in your other corners of third year, guys, So there's a lot of young players on the perimeter need to get some pass rush speed up the thought process for the quarterback. Let's get to the final down. Alright. I'm surprised that Dan Quinn is Bacca's the head football coach for the Lancer Falcons. What does he have to do this year to keep his job and Is that seats the warm because, like I said, I was surprised that they brought him back for this year. It is warm. I think that it's fortunate they brought him back because of the current situation with the pandemic and the uncertainties, so some continuity certainly has played into Atlanta Falcons off season. I think they've had a solid offseason, much as you can, with the limitations. They're attached to this year, So I think that it was good in retrospect that, uh, Mr Black decided to keep Dan Quint on, but I think he's got there. They've got a bit pushed for a playoff spot. I think they've got to be. They can't come out of the box one in seven. It's got to be a team. It's in the hunt of the entire way. As you said, it's going to be outstanding division with outstanding quarterback play, but they have to be in the hunt to be a part of the postseason play. If they do that. And I think the fans will be a little bit of stab on the wound for the fans. But if you get out to a slow start, it would not surprise me. If if Mr Blank made some kind of decision mid season on coach Boy and I think, coach when is the right guy for the job Now it's put up or shut up. He scored a touchdown will go for two here Oscar. One more question This team was 11 5 We all know the deal they were in the Super Bowl blew the 28 23 lead. The next year, they did go 10 and six, the last two years. It's seven and nine. If you had to identify the biggest reason why this team has regressed, and I know they've had some injuries to but overall if it's not the health of the team, what's the biggest thing that you look at? Why this team wasn't able to recreate that magic from 2016 and 2017? I think their inconsistency ball on both sides of the football in conversion, down situations and in the red zone. I think Atlanta's done a great job of moving the ball from 20 to 20 But when they get in the red zone, they bogged down and settle for too many threes. And I think in turn the defense's side of the football. What about 22 23 scoring defense coming up 25 points a game. They've got to find a way to get more stops in the red zone. That's probably the answer that you could probably get from all teams struggled and not made the playoff teams, but I certainly think That that's identifiable with the Falcons over the last couple years, the inability down deep in the red Zone both on offensive defense, Julio Jones, he's Ah Hall of Fame player. We all know that one of the better wide receivers in the league He's only had one year of double digit touchdowns, going back to 2012 when he had 10 TUC maybe 10 touchdowns in his fortunes this year. Well, I think he's certainly capable of it. But you got an outstanding receiver on the other side of Calvin Ridley, who's realized his abilities down in the red Zone Pretty close. I think Aidan hearse is going to be a seamless transition from Austin Hooper tight end spot So there are a lot of weapons from that Ryan to get the football too. Don't forget Todd Gurley and how good he is at the back catching the football as well. So I I would say no, I think he's going to be 89 touchdowns. I don't think he goes double digits, but I think there's a lot of guys around him. They're going to score touchdowns. Look for guys somewhere between 13 14 guys catch touchdown passes issue. Say that we appreciate it. Thanks so much. You be well, my

Dota Pit Is Done, Here Comes OMEGA League
"Yes, we are Doda pitch has concluded cinder. and. I personally didn't get to watch this tournament. because my sleep scheduled disallowed it as you know, but `Nigma did beat alliance in a best of five grand files three, two two. So a very up close series talking to this tournament. It actually just had a lot of mean closer towards the end right to to ones, and then the three to which is great for the region. Right. If the teams are close in keeping games off each other worth noting was the absence of secret obviously who have one Basically everything the last two to three months in Europe So them not being there might have leveled the playing field a bit. It's hard to say how much the other teams have caught up when secret aren't part of the tournament. But obviously, `NIGMA great confidence boost. It's been awhile since they've been doing this well Close finals, five games every game was I mean it's kind of a patch right? Most Games were like thirty to forty five minutes. There were no marathons and no GIG stomps but you know it's it's kind of just your your average game time. I guess have you played assemblyman a game yet by the way? Have still have not I don't. I might have actually. have. You finally been introduced the I'm trying to remember. If I had a game with a I. Don't I like maybe I had one actually I'm not positive how it might have happened but did it was one game? Okay. That's incredible. I mean it's not that important. It's to me they're the coolest items in the game, but anyway continue. No. Yeah. So I mean we. We should just I think just focus on the podium, right? Okay. Third Alliance, second `Nigma I and also scary team. Veasley. Teams at any time looked like all three could win because of how the series went so. Yeah good stuff going forward into the Omega League which is a much bigger tournament in terms of price pool we are casting in that by the way if you missed we started casting yesterday. Yes. currently casting their close qualifiers for the European region and that will be casting that over the next week roughly. Make sure you guys check that out actually I. Didn't even I think we're we're not just doing closed qualifiers. We'll doing some of the normal pre playoff stage so I think other than yesterday. So going forward today after this podcast actually will be doing one series an after today, we have three more days in the next two weeks span that were doing games. And then. I'm done at the very least your your schedule is going to be like, but don't know. I don't know anything about what I'm doing. Is this the first? Tournament secret is. After their break feeling that break has been that long it's been like a weeks is the first one. Yeah. I've been two weeks is a decent on time and Doda. To be honest I three weeks. So just to refresh people, EG is going to be part of the EU division on this. So it's quite staff I mean we might as well just mentioned all the teams team secret navy liquid VP flight, a moon E. G. OG alliance `Nigma and NIP, and then to close qualifiers which I mean we can go off on a limb and say who we think are GonNa win because I. Think. Viking. Is definitely like major. and. Then the secondary team, it could be bait. A. Pires these days think hell-raisers quotas well as get their stuff together like there's there's multiple options but I would definitely say clear favorites from nearby. To get first place. In those qualifiers. They've been pretty impressive. They've been they've definitely been very good Yeah. I mean I think this tournament is worth like just emphasizing bit that this might be quite possibly the best tournament of the year at this point because with the development of covert I, don't know if we're going to get any big land until the years over If things start opening up in October or whatever tournaments right now can bank on it. So they can start booking venues and planning everything. So it means if there's announcements of of stuff getting a bit less extreme in, let's say two months than they need a preparation period. So I think at this point, any big land this year's just very unlikely could add this online ones mega stack tournament at least for the West there's probably going to be bigger tournaments for the east than this but. Yeah, it's a it's a very big western tournament. So if you if you WANNA watch some of the best daughter, this is your chance to maybe watch the biggest turn. It says it goes through to September six is actually true correct Dan. So it's a really long term. So this close qualifiers and then there's a big group stage and then there's playoffs. Are Okay. This is gonNA. Be Dumb to bring this up. What are we casting for? The next two is adjust close squall. Here's my actually mistaken. I think it's just close quote Holy Shit. I think the Games I believe the group the group stays in Europe starts August fourteenth. My birthday and I. Good. Let. Me Just check the America's America Start Sixteenth and Asia is already ongoing with the group stage. That's August. I, sixteen they're way ahead. So the playoffs and group stage of the main event.

"It's just everyone feels because they're giving your body your soul, everything about it. You'd think that you built the team Earl probably feels like I built the Seahawks. I know there's others, but I'm one of the mount Rushmore of the Seahawks I did this. You respect me and when you don't respect me, it just so personal. Nobody ever leaves the game, happy or respected, and no one in the middle of their if they don't get the contract, they want. Everyone probably feels at that time.

It's like, yeah, you're Ferrari, but you leaking oil bro. You can't get it. It's not gonna help you in the long run teams don't wanna see that you gotta be bigger than it. I'm gonna press my look defense for one more question Khalil. Mack has been so great so far that the word, the letters MVP have come up as a quarterback. Did you ever think defensive player got guys? You played against LT singled Terry. Reggie. White you ever think offensive player could be the most valuable player in this league? I think it's possible. It's so hard to be the most valuable player on the field when you don't punch the football. But if you're thought of in that way without touching the football that is pure dominance. That's why you can only say two or three guys and three or three plus three generations of football clinic qualified and of Khalil Mack can start can start that conversation that tells you how dominant you need to be to be in the conversation. I tip my cap to Cleal MAC as well. We'll get you out of here on this. Is there anything in particular you'll be looking for tonight when the colts play the patriots? Well, two things come to mind. First of all, I loved watching Andrew lucked, throw the football in college. I told you guys, I had season tickets at Stanford over and I just beautiful. I mean, it was like a piece of art and I just sit there and stare them like, how does he do that? It was amazing, and it's a beautiful thing. He's got a shoulder injury and he's not throwing it the way he did is that. At eighty percents eighty five. It's not ninety five one hundred. I hope it gets there tonight. One key I'm going to watch for is can he'd drive the football? Like hasn't a best because you know, you come up with shoulder surgery. I think it can get better. I want to get better. It better get better. And I'm hopeful that tonight. And the other thing is Tom Brady at forty. One taught Michael Tony. He needs to start showing it. You know this pliability and green drinks and everything. It's like one forty one. I can't. I can't take it anymore. Some show me aside forty one. I just wanna see it. He's not forty one. Thank you. He's not forty one. Thank you as always the pleasure cross. Thank you funded me with. Let's take one last week still just come. Does Nick Sabin have a legitimate beef with Alabama students?

"I look like really all of fame quarterback Steve, meet those people. Some people might say, I'm very grateful to hear the. Let's start with Pat Mahomes who has received almost universal praise. Are there any vulnerability so far that you see that you think his opponents can take advantage of Tony? I spent the whole, I I don't use. I usually go back in the truck and watch some of the game, but I just sat on the sidelines just wanted to see the kid. I wanted to feel what I ended the game, and I said to myself what I saw tonight he can replicate for fifteen years. I don't know. There's got to grow. He's going to have to face adversity. There's going to be bumps in the road. He's going to run out of. He's not going to have as much tolerant of at times. You won't get the protection here and there, but I just some guys, I think have those tools that that that are, you know, you see over a period of time. It's not just a flash. It's not Dak. Prescott had first big year and then he couldn't. You know, he's got a gain some momentum. I just, I just felt like this kid has a factor that the force and the Star Wars the forces with this kid. I gotta feel we'll stay with quarterbacks and go to Arron Rogers. They more established quarterback than Pat Mahomes. Obviously, some people felt he was taking shots at Mike McCarthy's game plan on Sunday. You were a quarterback is publicly calling out a game plan. Anything that you felt comfortable doing? I my game, my play callers were Bill walls, Mike Holmgren, Mike Shanahan mardi Morgan, Steve Mariucci like I had guys, and I remember with Mike, Shannon said to me, Steve, I'm gonna call plays and you protect me. And so I loved that the, you know, just like symbiotic relationship with like he trust me so much that he's going to go crazy and I protect him on calls that aren't so good. I love that relationship might McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers have had a tense. Relationship. It's always been that and teeters between creative tension. I call it and toxic tension, and there's moments when it gets into toxins. And then it comes back and it's creative. I think in the end you can see that they've done played great music together. The fact that it bleeds into the public you, that's when you get a little bit nervous because that says, you know, I'm so frustrated because they know better. You know, it's a quarterback if you're going to say publicly, that is a sign that I am. I'm I'm raising the Defcon five and I don't want an end that Hoxha creativity. That's when you have trouble. And that's when teams devolve when there's toxic tension, you gotta watch that very closely. All right. I'm the one on this show always has to insert defense into it at some point, Tony, never would Steve. You ever feel like flipping off the sideline, your own sideline. Earl, Thomas thing ever feel that way. Michael, you know, everyone's frustrated. Everyone feels underpaid, no matter what it is..

"In other words, if that works for the patriots, even with their defense being bad this year, I will back away from my gloomy pay. Four thirty one ten. How about that? Okay. All right. We gotta deal with some thuggish hockey behavior for the second straight day. Tony, you're capitals after raising their first championship banner last night here in DC. I've really excited about that. Oh, awesome. The capitals had their way with the big band Bruins to the tune of seven to nothing, but that seventh goal and the subsequent celebration. So agitated Bruins, tough guy, Brad Marsh, and then he went after a non fighter. You boy LARs Eller. Yeah, pushed him in the face several times Dane with afterward quote, his celebration was unnecessary, so I just let him know that was cool. That's a great quote on quote, and as a result in each else should do to Marsh. Okay. So there's got to be a little bit of context here in the sense on this show. The irony that yesterday we dealt with a commercial commission by major league baseball, which which tries to say gin rigmaroles, get rid of some of these unwritten rules like the bad flip. So in this particular. Case the waving at that point violates the unwritten rule of, no, don't flip the bat and hockey. Don't celebrate too much by the other guys, you know bench in hockey. The context is this. They've just raised a banner. They won the Stanley Cup. They just won this game seven. They had two goals while I had my head in the refrigerator in the first minute, and they had two goals in this game. I think Marshon totally overacted. What do I think will happen? They set Wilson out Tom Wilson, Tom. Linka games twenty. At twenty at the end. Of thugs behavior, get rid of the funds, thin ice cereal rent play RCN into five times for bait and Wilson has been suspended. Okay. Also, we defend yesterday. No, I don't feel more sent out for twenty to twenty five. If you want to get rid of fighting, you wanna get with a thug. They they get rid of it. They don't want to get into the league was he? They wanted to fighters to go together. I didn't if you'll give twenty one in the colts game where I'm gonna take the under on twenty on this. That's the one I'm saying you people didn't think we could go all week without Jimmy Butler. Did you the typical to guard who told Wayne into soda? He had no interest all reaching for them and gave them a list of other teams that he would play for? Well, guess what? He's still finds himself in Minnesota. His coach there, Tom fiddle still wants and ancient lows and rouse give ESPN now says, Butler doesn't plan to miss any regular season games. So we'll von. Could he play from Minnesota?.

"Way that they took the brave seriously because the Braves were in the rebuild a little bit longer and they got a not necessarily an MVP become able to great player in FREDDY Freeman that he's the guy that everybody knows. Yeah, look, I think I think that's the reason. I think the dodgers are better club, not just the more glamorous club but a better club. But you're crazy to overlook Atlanta. Because they were all year long. Maybe they would go in the pace of the tortoise, but they went steady the whole time thinking about the dodgers. And I been sort of rooting for the dodgers Tony when when the cubs are out of it. They are so mercurial. I mean, we pay a lot of attention on this show and others when they get hot and they will six out of seven. I got honestly auto took him so well, here's how I one hundred. They have streets that go the other way and they lose five in a row and they lose six out of seven, and they have those periods. And I don't know whether they're hot streak is over the when they got them including the single game, playoff the division title is that over and are they ready to take a dip? It's tough to the last year and this year and when they are good, they seem to me to be much better than every team in the National League. Are you concerned at all that Kershaw will not pitch game one? Do you wanna throw him into game one because I would not. They've learned their lesson. I think the dodgers have seen Clayton Kershaw on short risks, including at the hand of my Cubbies, get his butt whipped in the postseason a couple of times and they stopped at stupidity life and near. Now we'll feeding Clayton Kershaw the way he should be. I think there's a greater lesson lesson. He'll go sixth grade and be. On the seventh or he'll go five greatly better than the sex. Don't be afraid to take him out. Don't leave the other than that's imported less from both are needed to be learned. What was once the greatest rivalry in the AFC will be renewed tonight, the colts and the patriots, though it has been a dud lately, the colts heaven beaten, the patriots in their last nine tries Angelakas personally, Owen five against them, in fact, looks worse stats against any team come against the patriots. But last Sunday luck threw for four hundred sixty four yards and four touchdowns we'll which Andrew lucked you think we'll see tonight. It doesn't matter whether we see Andrew luck or John United s- with that uniform and helmet on the patriots to whip their butts and the patriots have on the field at the same time, something they don't get the Tom Brady doesn't get off it. He has element and you gronk out there. The patriots got tired of hearing after two weeks what they weren't. They went out there and just throughout the team last Ed theme, that's okay. Dolphins dolphins were undefeated at the time. If you're a good thing, the Indianapolis Colts gonna go down and they're going down hard and you know. So let me get to the game the edleman and gronkowski thing, which is interesting. The last time they were out there together. There's a great stat week, twelve of the two thousand sixteen season. Yeah, which means the patriots have been a two Super Bowls without them both on the field together. I differ from you in this regard. When I looked at the number today that it was Indianapolis plus ten. I thought that was an enormous number ten points. You think this is a creek here? Well, it doesn't matter the patriots are going to beat what you said. Was a betting man and that drove with you out to your other state of Delaware community. We can sit down and we could make a bet, and I would take the patriots tonight plus twenty two my stammering or Steiner's twenty. When I say plus to just the patriots are going to win this game by three touch to my point out. One thing what I have offense, it's not a gated community. It's not it's not a gated to me to try to cry savory drama out of the know when I've seen and gronkowski being on the field at the same time, maybe the launching pad..

In today's episode, Julian Edelman is bad, Brad, Marchand, jaws laude, and Jimmy Butler, and they'd played from Minnesota after all. Like I said, we begin today with the result major league baseball wanted last night, the Yankees eliminating the as in the wild card game. This means MLB connect sale because the number one drawn sport will be on display for as many as five games. We'll on the Red Sox have eight more wins than the Yankees and home field. Are you? Sure they have the advantage. They have the advantage. It doesn't mean they'll win. I mean, you want home field in this. You know, my concerns about the top of the Red Sox rotation, say with sail alone, Maceo alone since July because I know what happened to him in September and October, which is nothing. So the Yankees when you see the Yankees hit him out, even when they go to hundred and forty feet like the ones that you know last night, not last night heated far. He hit a DP hit, whatever that he did. Is that your boy says? Yeah, so they both hit them last night? Yeah, but you know what? Tony, they gotta go to the ballpark and they gotta go there as many as four times. So I still think the Red Sox. Five, five, three times? Yeah. Okay. I think the Red Sox were better team. I do, but and here's the, but the judge homerun last night may have changed the whole arc of this. You went crazy over this last night? Yes, because I'm sitting there and I watch it. I didn't have to see. I heard it and said out loud that's out would just hearing it not even seeing it. If you remember with Ron, darling said, does yesterday he called Aaron judge the heartbeat of the team, and he said, if Aaron judge gets hot, that changes everything he's talking. I think he's talking the entire duration of the run. You have two small ballparks here Fenway in Yankee Stadium. By the way, the Yankees were, I think one in six in their last seven at Fenway they got some, Mike. They got judge Stanton both hit it out. They got Taurus. They've got Sanchez, they got, they got guys who combine it out three times a game. They can put down the Red Sox, Tony. So and inspect. I'm saying you could be. The games? Yes. So in those cases, if the top of the rotation for bowl team is not dominant and you get into ten eight, either team, the bullpen is your clear and decided advantage there. I don't think with the scores of these games, home runs flying out. There were going to get to the bullpens and fairly early again, small parks and can bang it. It changes everything that home run that has to be such a boost for judge and his teammates. 'cause they're wondering, can he come back from the injury you fired up? I was. I was. I'm not even the Mets guy. Andrew told, you know, the Atlanta Braves, win the playoffs. I did the team of Ronaldo kunia Ozzy Albee's it might Fulton image there in the playoffs. I knew that and they're in a match of we're so accustomed to seeing with the dodgers, but because the Braves have lost, get this eight consecutive postseason series is like they don't even exist and the dodgers will turn out there famous vents in winning the walkover. So you wanna cop to completely overlooking Abrego because because I'm an ads fan and the NATs collapsed opened the door for the Braves and the NFL east, which is the overlord Phillies too. But we have to fill. Nobody took the Phillies seriously in the.

"And by the way i'm fine with the mound visits i thought that'd be a big deal it's not been a big deal that was a good change so is the intentional walk that's fine too but then nothing nothing nothing you don't really change anything they don't make the game more exciting d h in the national league one hundred fifty four game schedule third three game first round of the playoffs stead of the one game wild card doubleheaders limits on on patriots on a roster these things will make the game a lot better and outside of padding d h in the national league none of dramatic changes and for national and i think the american league has had the had more dominant teams i think a lot of that is because of the definitely factors in it's time no other league did the two divisions hockey basketball football did not separate rules for each league you're playing each every day every day when i hear people are update guys say nationally an interleague i think to myself why are we even saying interleague anymore just just give the scores interleague game every day marlins orioles today every day rockies rangers today nationals bluejays today every day you got to have the same rules it's absurd joe in washington disagrees he's next up on cbs sports radio gel.

"Maybe more than that but guaranteed two of them will not be playing in the american league championship series what does that mean it means you know they might have big payrolls and knock every warded so even when you're my point is this even when you're really good even when you have a really good team it's no guarantee that you're going to get foreign enough to make all that money back that you spent by getting the world series or even the american league champion national league championship series to me if you're a final fourteen you've had a very good year and you probably made your money back with the success that you've had if you're less than a final four team there's a chance if you're a high payroll team that you didn't make your money back so playing the odds and not worrying about winning and losing it's easier to be to not compete and not have that heartbreak then to compete hard and risk the chance that you spent a lot of money and still didn't win and there have been examples in baseball and always will be examples in baseball of teams that spend a lot of money and still didn't win the mets don't want to be one of those and no one can argue that that's still a possibility the spend a lot and still lose it's a possibility but you know what if you don't spend a lot well then you can't lose a lot and i think that's the mets philosophy know we all spend too much even if it goes bad we're not out that much that's not great for the fans but it might be good for the organization we'll wrap it up get you set for hockey coming back on the fan pros know a lot about painting it's why they're called pros but they're secrets out and.

"And so i think actually even though the initial legacy of the players league was that the national league returned to power even stronger than before the american association went out of business various soon after the players league folded mid nationally had really sold supremacy over baseball for a time it wasn't that long later about a decade later that the american league was formed and i think what the players league demonstrated is that there was room for a league like the american league there were opera tunities for at least if not long term short term gain for people who might compete with with the nationally of course the federal league about fifteen years after the the american league emerges as a rival league to to the national league so yeah i think the players league certainly was instructive in that in that regard for investors who wanted to make money that you didn't have to use said in in house your illustrating with your your show and so many other different sports you don't have to get into the big league the major league necessarily to to start making money off of the sport i will as we round third base in and head to home in view here not to strain in analogy but why don't maybe you can give us a little bit of your perspective as to the legacy perhaps of this league it's clear right that not only in baseball but sports generally this issue of the player as labor so to speak versus oftentimes different perspectives and motivations of quote unquote management these are issues that are about as modern and current as they were oddly back in the day have things gotten better or worse there any sort of learnings and door things that can be taken from this very interesting chapter in baseball that are either you know that are applicable today or perhaps being ignored as they say people nor history are doomed to repeat it.
