"And she's dreaming above the toyota parked across the street right and she's got glasses going and she's working on the pottery wheel and she so distracted that she's wrecking whatever. She's working on on the pottery wheel because she's so distracted by the toyota. She wants a toyota so bad later and they they basically sort of zoom in on her and show a massive splatter this splash of this sort of creamy colored liquid soul over her.

"I recently made an episode that talked about some of the issues related to any sort of alliance between the cfl and xfl. I was surprised by both the volume and quality of feedback. I'm very grateful for that. And even more inspired by the passionate people have canadian football. I share that passion. Not only am i fan on a longtime subscriber so to was my white and a longtime volunteer for the former toronto argonauts. That was a passionate group playing for crowds during good times and the not so good attending. A cfl game is inexperienced. Like no of and once you've been to one. You'll likely want more very quickly. The football bug sets in. When i can't attend in person i love watching the games on tv yet. It's on tv that too many times. The weak spots are augmented. Everything on tv seems to become bigger than in reality gore. Cf l. game weak spots are empty seats whether it's wrong or tire. Sections of empty seats. The gaps are augmented whether lower turnout was a one time thing or an ongoing conditioning. Given martin the glaring exception of course to all of this is the empty seats. Send a message. We someone is not recognizing the modern game for what it is entertainment. That's something we still need to get a handle on for the nfl. When games are televised we need to treat those fans as a studio audience. More than a bunch of fans in a stadium. Never allow even one empty unless for social distancing purposes to be shown on tv. Do whatever it takes to move people and fill the gaps gaps become a painfully obvious on tv at the end of the day. It doesn't matter whether those seats are paper or not. It shows that there was an excitement. And a fan fever in the stands. It nudges that person watching at home to say. Wow i really should have been this. Responsibility can't just rest on the management of one team or one stadium as a production issue. There needs to be a stronger connection between broadcaster and lead to visually package and present the product in a way that goes beyond the traditional and very excellent by the way commenting graphics and onscreen entertainment production. Today's world presentation needs to start considering the stadium fans as a studio audience. In a more cohesive way most agree that the product on cfl field is a tremendous value but the product that someone sees on tv contains gaps no matter how good the game televised rose or sections of empty seats. Do nothing to inspire excitement or ticket. Buying action through the cameras could do more to simply not show the throngs of empty seats and there has been more than one senior person in a team's front office that is recognized the optical value in helping stack the seats with energetic fans. But i think some creativity and ingenuity might be required. Here perhaps some reconceptualise ation because more than that is needed. Alibis games. today are football shows with live audiences. I wonder what things would look like. Well disney.

"Many listeners of this podcast. now i'm a fan of the xfl. i'm also a fan of the cfo. That's why i was a little more than interested. When i learned of the news of official talks between the two leagues to explore partnership possibilities while early in the process. It's fun to consider what might evolve in twenty twenty two. I think most will agree that nothing less than something. Bold will suffice. The cfl went begging cap in hand to various departments of the federal government last year. All to no avail. Let's hope they're not doing the same with the xfl namely seeing it as a source of no strings attached revenue. Let's talk about a complete merger a north and south division the xfl and see xfl the north american extreme football league. Who knows if this works. There's far more potential. The cfl needs something bold some way to grow. The league must've will to survive simple as that. I recall a commentary a few years ago by the late and very great chris shoals former. Nfl nc afl offensive linemen while sitting as a panelist at the desk of canada's tsn sports network he emphatically pointed out while the nfl. And it's more or less nine teams may have worked more or less in the past the league needs to grow. It needs more teams. That people want to watch if survival is part of the business plan and that will mean some change. Opinions are already tilting toward moving the game to four downs. Is that such a bad thing. This issue exemplifies the question what is critical to retain should the cfl merged with an american league. If you were sitting at the table. What is your deal breaker. You only get one so which one the size of the field the rouge the number of players on each line all of these things are up for discussion for me. To put it simply. The cfl offers football fans opportunity to watch the game from june through late autumn. The season has been adjusted several times over the past century or so but if nothing else when negotiating the summer aspect of the cfl something i would be pressing for. The xfl positioned itself has not competing with the nfl. Not getting in the way. Starting mid february and running to mid spring. I would suggest that a combined league start in early to mid march winding up the season with a championship game possibly late september to early october minimal. Overlap with the nfl retaining the spring aspect of the xfl aspect of the march. Should be as doable in terms of field action and canadian cities as is a late november game. I think the reality is looking at an american sized field for downs. One fewer player on inside but some unique aspects of the game could easily fuel their way into an american xfl viewer market the rouge for example plus a host of new innovations. That happened yet. Been tried by either creating something new and bigger than each. It's not the first time that an american base league has had canadian host cities. The continental league had three canadian teams. The world league of american football team based in montreal and not only touches on the game of professional football. Of course the cfl has its experience and expanding into us markets many commentators in canada's snide label the early nineties expansion of the nfl into the usa as a failure couldn't be further from the truth. The legacy is a generation of talent many of which have become legendary and iconic for canadians and fans of canadian football. The only failure would have been not trying. The point is at two organizations. recognize the need to grow. As in any marriage there will be compromises. There has to be the current discussions offer an opportunity for fans players and personnel alike to prioritize what they deemed critical to evolving and what is essential to make the process worthwhile like it or not. This may be the best opportunity for the cfl in a generation. Make no mistake. These talks between the two leagues offer. Hope of survival for the nfl. Even.
Is Tom Brady now the greatest team sport athlete ever?
"Who is the greatest athlete of all time to debate. That i saw again and again on social media today after tom brady won another super bowl. Mvp super bowl ring. He does again at the age of forty three and this might be as most impressive super bowl victory yet. And i don't even know how you have. That discussion in the big picture to be honest is like where. What are you basing it on is the number of championships is it. The number of mvp's is it. How levick you are It could be you know you can dismiss some guys because they're part of a team sport versus individual where it's one hundred percent of that person that drives a success like that's probably a i mean. It's an apples and oranges thing as well different sports. I don't even know how ya how you could ever come up with that. certainly james. Tom brady is very much in that discussion. Now here's the. Here's the issue. Stevie with tom brady being you know the certainly certainly the greatest quarterback of all time okay. Let's go with that all right. Let's go hands down greatest guy to play that position seven championships multiple. Mvp's multiple wins games. All that stuff. So i think he's the greatest quarterback but but if you if you were on that same team with tom say prior to the tampa and you're on the six superbowls and you know another player on that team another quarterback of course but so so. Where does that leave you. You know if you're if you're a middle linebacker going or gronkowski on. Hey i want six. There is that what is that. What the qualifiers. To be the greatest of all times. I was there. I wouldn't six so the the football kind of funny for me to pick to pick a player that has a completely different position in hockey. For example everyone you know you got a bunch of forwards bunch of skaters know and they award them bill norris trophy for defense and all that stuff and so hockey. I think you can figure out who. Who's greatest of all time because you're comparing apples to apples there. So that that's a bit of an issue for me to single dot saying you're the greatest of all time again again because there'd be other guys who played on that team who won super bowl championships you know it's just an interesting position to because everything goes to the quarterback it's such a unique position your guiding the ship. You're the leader of the team on and off the field. It's such a unique position that in team sports is not really another comparison in my opinion the other sport that i could compare that to where where i think. You're singling out a position player. So i don't think you can call them the greatest football player of all time. It's quarterback baseball right. You can get an you. Get an ace pitcher. Okay on a on team of course and if you said okay well he's he's the greatest baseball player of all time. And you're going to wait. Wait a minute wait a minute. I'm i'm sammy sosa over here. Okay right what do you mean. I'm where i'm pete rose there. I'm i guess pizza name wouldn't be in there anymore. You know what i mean. So bad is gonna wait. Wait a minute here.

I'm looking forward to that. Fantastic and the nhl selling off. Its division names. We already have to get used to a new setup as far as new names because we had to realign the nhl to realign the league us we for example if a new north division with all seven canadian teams in it. It's not going to be called. Just the north. It's going to be called the scotiabank north. They have sold off the names. They've rotten A few extra shackles by selling off the names the west division will be the honda west. You've got the discover central division. And let me see here. I can't quite read. It's a lot of letters there. Oh yeah the mass mutual east division. What is that. I don't know what that company is. Matt went mutual financial. Sounds like yeah or insurance one of the two. Oh so it's interesting stevie. Okay that the the nhl is starting to prostitute itself. Okay okay settings. What's what's really funny. Where they get caught with their pants down right is everyone talks about. I hope the nhl never goes to the way. It is in europe where there's advertise all over every jersey and the helmets and the and the sticks and it's all over the joint right there look like a nascar you know a guy who steps on the ice european player and the nfl. The nhl has always been holding back saying. We don't wanna do that. You know we don't wanna put the fans through that all that stuff and so now it's like. Hey wait a minute. so now we're going to. We're going to sell anything. Which which that that is bound to come. Stevie bound to come here helmet stickers to right. So that's the second right right so they're gonna start to sell everything. Give it given the given the loss of revenue here to right and the nhl be okay. But it's kind of like okay i. We should've never said that we wouldn't sponsor anything that someone wants to buy. But let's do it slowly here. Let's sell the divisions offer this thing. Yeah well the horse's head out of the barn to with in both cases people think it all they just doing it for this one time or during cove and then it'll go back to normal if the sky doesn't fall and they can line their pockets with these advertisements whether it's the helmet stickers with the name of the division you can damn well bet they're gonna keep rolling with it and not only that keep adding new stuff and see how far they can push the envelope on it. You don't wanna change.

"You not only had danny heated. Look forward to if you're a sense fan brought in by muckler but you also had dominik hasek at the same time. Hasha can heatley That had everybody energized and That season didn't go very well because of the injury like you talked about with harshek the following season however they went to the stanley cup final and they loss of course to anaheim that year. But i can't remember general manager taking his team to the stanley cup. Final as muckler did as as a manager and then get fired within a few weeks of that performance. It was it was. I would love to know about the intrigue of that as well. Because there was almost a power struggle with roy moore lacquer the president of the club and the gm and john mcclure who are longtime fans longtime strengths. And roy malacca big listen to the show by the way There was almost a power struggle there with that. Duo and cyril leader and brian murray. Because murray was a coach muckler brought him in and then not that long after murray took over for him as the general manager of the club. Leader took over for malacca as the president. So there i don. I don't know the story line behind all of it. But it was like a big old soap opera and it would have been cool to be a fly on the wall during those days. Gotta get malacca on salvin idea. Maybe maybe willing to tell some tales. Tell some tales. Yeah you know the one thing. I do remember about john. Lewis came to hockey. And you always asked me about these hockey guys. Steve i anything i know about has nothing to do with hockey waiting for you to tell all the life stories. I'd sort of fill in the hockey blanks after. But one thing i do. I do remember this distinctly. I remember this distinctively. I remember this when we were doing the morning. Show and i loved it. I loved macos response. You know one of the biggest frustrations for coaches and players and general managers and presidents of club and owners is how to handle the fans right how how to how to respond to the fans when they get on something okay wins losses trades or whatever right and it's a really. It's a really tough situation right. Steve because you know the the fans who are calling for someone to be traded and the guy. They don't know what they're talking about. And it's a stupid trade and you know they they always get. I listen to talk shows after right in the goggle they gotta get rid of that guy. They got to get rid of them they go. Why did you what he did tonight. You know and then the whole straight. They'll say okay. Well who should we get for him and shuts it down right shuts the fan down. So it's kinda like okay. Shut up you don't know what you're talking about right and so it's a real frustration..

Learning How to Lead with Ryan Hawk
"Ryan hawk on dose of leadership man. I'm excited that you're here. Welcome the show my friend. I appreciate it. Thanks for having me rich You know we've been connected the lincoln and obviously had known about your show for a long time so similar past but always wanted to have you on this show talked. Nfl leadership junkie so man. I'm glad you're here. Like i said thanks for having me it I was read about. Your story is pretty wild especially with everything. Going on as a pilot and september eleventh man. I was I was like wow. This is going to be interesting. Yeah no it's it's it's been a journey but it so i'm curious i i would bet that are past. They're similar in the sense. That if i understand correctly football was kind your dream as you were growing up and then going through college and then you played somewhat professionally as well right and then. How did that in. I don't quite know the story how that ended. Why did the football come to an end. Eventually they tell you you're not gonna Like most guys they re. The sport retires you tire from. And so i played after college. I played for a few years in the arena. Football league briefly went up to canada. And cfl you know handful of workouts in the nfl and then they they say Yeah you're you're you're okay. But not good enough to To make it to the upper echelon of the sport and the nfl where you can actually earn a living and the really gripe played. It's essentially like playing minor league baseball right. You do you do it for the opportunity to keep playing into potentially catch. Someone's eye so that you could maybe have the story like kurt warner right. Kerr played in the arena. League gets gets a workout. He impresses he gets a job. The starter gets hurt and all the rest is history is now in the hall of fame. So i think that's why you do it you you and that's why i did it for a few years and I love those great experience. I mean you. Don't you can only do that when you're still in the prime of your athletic life and and so i'm glad i did it even though it delayed a little bit of my professional career but I i definitely don't regret. Yeah with so when you found it came to an end was it. Was it something you kind of always knew is going to happen you prepared for you said you know what i'm going to play ride this out as long as i can and then i'm going to start some sort of professional career and business or something that always in the back of your mind or was it like with me. I always thought. I was going to be a pilot and west when nine eleven happened and i got thrust in the corporate arena was a little bit of panic. Initially but How was it for you. Well i you know. I think kids. Are i talk with high school and college kids now. They're just so much smarter and better intentions than i did. When i was in college I didn't even really think about not playing football right And and so That could you know. I had friends who were really good about Building relationships creating connections setting themselves up for for life after college. I just wasn't one of those people. I i was immature like a lot of twenty two year olds and so i didn't have any thought of not playing I just happened to get really lucky. I am a family friend. Decided to take a chance on me and hire me into a sales job and And then just said hey just kind of use the same type of work ethic you learn as a player but now do this year for this job and if you do I have a hunch that things will go well. his name's rex. Goswell still a great friend to this day and just i'm just lucky. I had a person who is willing to take a shot. And then i as i try to do. I like to prove people right When they believe in fortunately it kind of my career went from there man. What a blessing to have that person kind of in your corner to kind of steer you. They saw something in you right. Which i think is an obligation of all this leaders right. Great leaders kinda see something that we don't even seen ourselves ripe and they help extract that out of you. That's great and then as i suppose you started working and that's when it was a lexus nexus nexus right and so you're in this sales position in this professional role like with me that's when it became. I started getting these moments of clarity of like. Oh where i came from. In my case it was the marine corps and flying planes in my mindset was limited. When i first started in thinking all i know how to do sleigh airplanes and but then as i got into the corporate arena i started saying oh i did learn a lot more than just flying airplanes. I'm assuming the probably same happen you with your football experience in in the great coaches and mentors you surrounded yourself around most of your life. I learned i learned how to develop a work ethic. I learned resilience. I learned preparation. I learned being coach -able. I learned how to collaborate with others. i got to college. I was on a much more diverse team people from wide variety of backgrounds. And i played a in the arena league down in birmingham so completely different from where. I'm from here in ohio and so i would say i think i learned about people. I learned a lot about myself. Learn about how to work. I learned how to do extra. I learned all that from my coaches from playing sports. And so i. I just tried to take that into the professional world and i liked the profession of selling because the people who were landing at the top of the stack rankings. The people who were making the most money the people who are getting promoted. They were the ones who were working the hardest. I don't have any experience. But i do think i could work And so i i. I was willing and still. I'm willing to to to work really hard at it. And then Eventually led to me. You know having some success in doing well exceeding the goals accompany set for me and then that led to promotions and more opportunities. And so i think that's that i direct all of that back to a combination of two things. One my family. My parents my brothers as well as My coaches who really taught me how to out of work once. I want for my eighth grade to ninth grade year.
Spring League football tourney to play in bubble
"That. I was reading an interesting story. This just hit There's gonna be a Spring league in football. A 16 football tournament in Las Vegas. They will start in October. And they'll use a bubble concept very similar to what we're witnessing now in the NHL and N BA, the teams will be stocked mostly with players that have been released by NFL teams. And also 20 to 30 college players from FBS power five schools that either decided to opt out in 2020 or had their season's cancelled. Interesting. They'll be 228 players 38 players per team. The law be housed in the same hotel will practice and play at the same facility. And they'll be quarantined within the air quote bubble. Would the woods? That would be Brian Woods? Who is the Spring League? That's what they're calling it. The Spring League CEO. Said that Events will be funded internally. With the possibility of recouping some money from a broadcast agreement at a later date. Interesting boy. Somebody very opportunistic and I don't know. You put something together that big that quick on how they're going to play in October. But how could college players being the bubble? When are they going to school dropped out guys that would be done their job. They're not going to play it all right if college football's going to cancel the season So they're not going to go back. There's going to be some players ago. Okay? I guess I'm done done going back this spring League. That's what it's called Conduction annual monthlong Siri's of practices and games. A showcase talent to the NFL and CFL scouts. It also hosts several other smaller and more frequent player showcases, most recently, a four day event in Denver last month. I didn't even know about this. The spring leagues bubble schedule this fall calls for 10 days of practice starting October 7th. Followed by nine games between October 17th of October 28th. During games the league will ban huddles. And limit each team to 19 players, three coaches and three medical staffers on the field or on the sideline. The remaining 19 players and all their staffers will be stationed either in the end zone tunnel. Or off the field entirely, and will be called when needed. Disinfect intense we placed on both sidelines. Three game officials will be assigned to clean the game ball. Some player equipment after every single play, and all protocols will be overseen by Dr Paul Auerbach. A professor at the Stanford

"Rhenium Brozi is the fourteenth and current commissioner of the Canadian Football League during the off season you may have interacted with him on his Randy's road trip tour of the country. Well this off season has been different and the road trips in the future might be different. He's not at training camps right now. Interacting with fans, he is hoping to make sure that the league can come back for the fans experience as A. A player and as an administrator, and as part of the PA, and now as part of the League office has not really helped him. Get ready for this challenge, nor I assume has is education from the University of Manitoba. Randy this has been an education for all of us. What have you learned through this period as you're trying to usher the league into a spot where it can survive in maybe potentially thrive. Oh my gosh, the. I think there's a long list of things that We're all learning. You know I think one of the things that strikes me ever day is that you have to learn to separate speculation from fact, because obviously we have a lot of unanswered questions, and and the instinct is to glue together two or three ideas and treat them as though that is fact than evidence to support an argument. And some part of the exercise again, maybe a second lesson learned. is to really step back from it all and ask the question of whether or not that is, in fact a fact or just what we're speculating, so you know there I think there are good lessons to be learned from this where all feeling a little disempowered compared to a normal operating environment, but there probably will be some good that comes from the amongst all of the suffering and tragedy. There will be some good that comes from it. Maybe we'll become better at what we do. Randy as we talk to you today. Where is the CFL's viability regarding playing in twenty, twenty or playing in early twenty twenty one? Well, it's a great question. And I think over the last couple of weeks in particular. Have really been focusing, not just on. You know what it would take to get us to play in twenty, but really a chance to really reframe. The way, we think about the League and looking at twenty one and beyond. I saw yesterday report that suggests that there could be upwards of three hundred million jobs displaced as a result worldwide as a result of the virus, and obviously there is going to be some economic. Follow till we won't see an economic recovery, an immediate economic recovery when the virus crisis passes, so we're GonNa have to think about the business environment in the economic environment that will be operating again when this is done. And again lesson learned than this. Is that a crisis doesn't eliminate your problems that actually just amplifies them, and so the idea is as we look at all of the options to play in twenty twenty. We have to be mindful about twenty one and beyond and I think it's a chance to reset. It's to look at our operating model. Look at our cost structures. Look at how we organize ourselves opportunities to share resources, so you know before we ask our teams to swallow a bitter pill and spend money and lose money much more than they would lose an normal season I want to be able to show them something on the other side. I WANNA. WanNa be able to say that. If in fact, we go ahead and do anything in twenty, it has to be leading us to a better place into the future, and you know frankly. I'm optimistic that we can do that. I think we've got a great stakeholders I. Think everyone in and around our game loves the CFL love what it stands for like we still got a lot of momentum on our two point Oh strategy, but personally I think it's time for CFL. Three point zero, which will be just a better version of ourselves in in a better operating model at through that, Lens. I think we can survive the crisis and and look forward to a great future. So the most recent decisions in the news around the league were one to move the Grey Cup in terms of awarding Saskatchewan Twenty twenty, two, keeping Hamilton as the host for twenty twenty one and going to a model of a win it. Then you hosted model. The game is played in in twenty twenty end to to allow players back into facilities if their jurisdictions locally. Say That's okay. Can you walk us through the mindset and the decision making in terms of how you came to both of those decisions, so the Twenty Twenty Grey Cup obviously was planned for. Scotch, when and it's very clear now that under no circumstances. Will we hand up having what we call a normal grey cup experience of bringing large numbers of our fans, and and you know what it's like grey. Cup is an amazing event in part, because it's so fantastically social the festival as big part of Grey Cup as the game itself is, and so the decision not to go with a normal grey cup was an easy one to make, because even the most optimistic amongst us had to acknowledge that Grey Cup would be very challenged through that lens of what we would describe as a traditional Greek experience, so that part was easy. Be The winning host I. Think which just a really good interesting innovation, actually taking a page out of the. If you look at MLS for an example and obviously hockey You know well documented you know. As the as teams continued to play through the playoffs. They you know they get the play their games at home. And ultimately we just felt that for what is clearly going to be a nearly bizarre year that all of us will remember for the rest of our lives. This was the one time to look at Great Cup differently, and we made the decision that the win and host would be the best way to operate in these unique circumstances. As it relates to reopening facilities again just simply taking guidance from healthcare authorities and officials as they roll out there phased in. Restart. It's a nice thing to think about. Being able to welcome the players who are in the local community back to the facilities, obviously in order to do that. We need to do it safely, but it's a step towards feeling. We're closer to a more normal environment. And the message from the Office of the teams as provided they can. Operate their facilities in mind with public health requirements. As long as we do everything, we can to follow the rules and make sure that our players and staff remain healthy than it's good, healthy and a positive step towards getting us closer to where we all WanNa be in that is playing football at some point down the road or any. Could you characterize where things stand now regarding discussions between the CFL and the Canadian government. Those conversations are ongoing. They have asked us to look at existing programs..

Race for No. 1 pick in 2020 NFL Draft: Joe Burrow to the Bengals becomes the trendy pick
"I just don't think that Joe burrow necessarily says the things that he said being a little wishy washy about committed the bangles before this and that all goes away because of the scouting combine his want to throw gasoline on the fire eight maybe he again maybe he wants to challenge we had Carson Palmer on the show radio row Superbowl week he said I was gonna get drafted number one overall people told me don't go to the bangles there losing organization I said I've got I'm good enough to change it there he said look looking back there was a youthful arrogance about me I thought I could change it I realized I learned I could not so perhaps Joe burrows in the same boat but perhaps Schober also is getting other information or other direction from his father his dad played professional football his dad played football in the CFL his dad has been a football dad it's distinctly possible is dad knowing the ins and out of an NFL career or a pro football career says you know what you don't want to go to the bangles and let's get you somewhere else which is exactly what Archie manning did so this is no slam against Bengals fans of this city of Cincinnati you know they're no worse or better this is no worse or better than many other cities in the NFL this is simply about can you trust the ownership namely Mike brown to support you to build a winner Joe burrow is the best quarterback in this draft by a long shot he's the best player because the numbers he put up last year he's also the best back because of two ways injury Joe burrow in a quarterback league is the best quarterback in this year's draft so you know he's got some leverage there and does he have faith that Mike brown who is renowned in the NFL as a cheapskate does he have the faith that Michael brown will do enough that we had to go on the show late last week and he absolutely was adamant that the idea the narrative that the Bengals don't wanna win is silly just look at the playoff berths that they made the playoffs seven times under Marvin Lewis and that if you make the playoffs that many times and you draft as well as they do which they do draft very well then you shouldn't be criticized for not trying to
The State of 'The Black Quarterback': A Conversation with Donovan McNabb
"Over a decade ago my Business Partner Hall of Fame Quarterback Warren Moon. I sat down to discuss. How can we stop? The labeling of black quarterbacks are dream was for some day they're not to be that description at all. I was blessed to sit down with Donovan. Mcnabb one of his men teas and proteges to discuss the status and progression of black quarterbacks in the NFL. This is entrepreneurs. The playbook hey I wanted to have a conversation about black quarterbacks and as you know it's been a big part of my career has warned being a client and then a partner of mine are dream. Ten years ago was that nobody would ever say black quarterback right but I think you know to this day that they don't use it as much but I see a hangover when I look at you not be in the hall of fame or the way that Warren's marketed because they don't want that story told about six years in Canada right right and then there's just an under Tony it's unintentional. It's like even with the metoo movement. Things go on aren't intentional. It's social development social. How can we help? Expediter accelerate people understanding the equality. That exists I you have to appreciate I don't think we're at a point where we appreciate the level of evolution. That's going on and I say that because he wanted to mention. Hey you know you were kind of guy that passed the torch in them like no. The torch was already late for Marlin Bristow Gilliam and dumb and James James Harris and those particular guys. It was then but it wasn't one that was accepted and then. I think when you mentioned the warnings and the Randall Donovan. Before I thought it was a warm place you played when you played but it was. It was kind of a it. Wasn't it wasn't appreciate and when? I say that you know it was the yard that Warren Password worn was Dan Marino. We'll be talking about how radio because his numbers are comparable today without the six years in candidate. But I I think what we're seeing now is. We're seeing people start to understand the level of talent ability. How cerebral these kids are. They can play from the pocket and their leaves. These are all things that when they mentioned about. You'll see that in in the list now and says it has it's literally presidential but but the thing is you have to be able to take a step back and say you know what these kids can play the quarterback position. And when you look at the collegiate ranks then more black quarterbacks in the collegiate good ones so again it goes back to happen understand. What the level we go through and give it to appreciate what we're seeing you know. I do allow entrepreneurs and I talked about patients who and the need to be offended or or resentful. And it's so interesting with all those guys that you talk to your mom. Briscoe someone that in California. We do a ton of work with for years trying to get that movie made by the way you know. It's a really good movie and a really good story but nobody's really resentful and angry or offended. How do you have the patience to wait for the reality to come about that? All the top quarterbacks are going to be evaluated by their talent. Well here we have old. School mentality shouts and tell you them telling evaluators who still have that. Well he's black quarterback what are we just evaluated his ability. How intelligent he is. The family background would become as he comes out. It's nothing else that you need to focus on focus on his color. You only public hair. You have to focus on how he wants. You know the the focus needs to be more of the position and that's what we're seeing we have. We have been after the American insult that people are afraid to talk about now. He will say well. We don't need talking about though. He's the third every America's worries. They play of great ones. The greatest african-american quarterback did win. The might. I've worked with before because the caregiver Steve but this could be an opportunity for a guy who people love is ability. Yeah and then. They want to question the thing about his character. What are you looking at? Are you looking more deep into trying to fight the negative or how good this really with? Doug flutie yeah who has a lot of similarities to a lot of running quarterback and I said if you were an African American would have been your chances even to play in the CFL for how old he is. He said there won't be a chance ever but stories like that people boss. Yeah well that's what I wanted in talking to people over and and it's important for us to focus on that because it's not gonNA stop. I mean we're looking at. We've looked at five afterward quarterback just in the playoffs alone. Yeah headed had a chance to have to play it in title game and then it's GonNa continue to grow where mean who's to say feels doesn't get drafted in the next year or two from Ohio state. Then I was talking about him. It's exciting right now. You've been one of those guys. They continue to grind the path. I'm on your team. As far as I'm Jay Hall of Famer right here. More people need to be aware of the issues that we're facing and this guy needs to be in the hall of fame and many others because we're building a pipeline hall of famers. It's a shame that Warren Moon American and I appreciate the respect. I love warranty. That's right I n there. I appreciate your insight and honesty thanksgiving.
How does hockey reckon with an abusive power structure?
"By the time you finish listening to this podcast. It's likely there will be more stories out there about abusive hockey coaches right now as we are recording this and as you're listening to it. The sport is facing a reckoning. It began with the toppling of one of the biggest domino's in the game. Mike Babcock out as coach of the Toronto Maple leafs tonight. Every mounting losses position became more and more tenuous and tonight his reign lean over. leafs nation is over. Mike Babcock was fired by the Toronto. Maple leafs for the same reason. Tons of hockey coaches have been fired before him. His team was underachieving. He might have been a bigger name than those other coaches but still not unusual then. The story started during the two thousand sixteen seventeen season. Mitch Moore had a private meeting with Mike Babcock and the coach asked then rookie to list the players on the team from Best Work Catholic to worst martyr complied not realizing that that talk within show his list to some of the players ranked the lowest and not long after that it became clear. The stories weren't just about Mike Babcock. Major allegations made against Calgary flames head coach. Bill Peters a former. NHL Her Chemo Lou. who spend spend some time with the flames in the early part of this decade calling for his alleged use of racial slurs while they were both part of the Chicago Blackhawks Organization now players ears are saying publicly things that used to be kept behind closed doors at all cost and the NHL in almost every league below it is realizing that it has a problem problem or more accurately that it has had a problem for quite some time? Now the question is what happens next. What did they do about it? What changes changes in the leafs? They've been playing a lot better since they fired the guy who humiliated one of their best players who thought I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story. Jeff Blair is a senior writer at sports net dot CA. He is the CO host of writer's block on Sports Net. Five ninety fan every day. He has covered a lot of dressing rooms ends and locker rooms throughout his career. Hey Jeff how you doing short. I'm doing well you've You've covered a lot of dressing rooms and locker rooms over the years I was. I was thinking about this the other day when the stuff happened with the Chemo. Lou and Bill Peters out of thinking to myself. I ever seen a locker room. I thought something nothing really poisonous and happen. And I think because unbalanced I spent more time around baseball clubhouses than anything else and initially when I started reporting Winnipeg CFL locker rooms is kind of a little different than hockey. I mean baseball. There have been African American players. There've there've been Latino players in baseball has its issues but it's nothing to go on a clubhouse now and see that the white players are in the minority I mean that's just the way it is and the NFL. When I covered it's the same thing and I don't remember any relationship with a manager or coach or a team I thought was particularly toxic? I mean they're examples of tone deafness. But what I think happens more often than not in a lot of these situations is just the manager coach. Whatever you WANNA call it becomes tone-deaf two things? Well why don't you start then by explaining how we got here where it started with Mike. Babcock in the leafs. Yeah there's a couple of things first of all. I'm a little concerned that people are sort word of mixing. Mike Babcock not you but people in general people were kind of going all Mike Babcock and then Bill Peters. Because here's the thing Mike Babcock seems to have tried cried some Caveman Sports Psychology on Mitch. Martyr So tell us about that. Mitch Monitor the first year. The story is now now that everybody's confirmed Mike. Babcock wanted him to work harder. So Mike Babcock called them into his office and said list your teammates in terms of hardest working to least hardworking. And tell me where you'd put Yourself Yourself Mitch. Marna with coach wants to do this so he goes ahead and does that and Somehow and I I don't know when it came out but somehow Mike Babcock doc essentially went to some of the guys that were below martyring. Say Mitch thanks. She works harder than you. You know this guy's dog in it right now and he thinks that works harder than you and the best line out of the Whole Story and God love Mitch. Martin but the best line of the whole story's Mitch Marnie just kind of shrugging and going nobody took it seriously right. You know it's like that's just that's just babs so I mean their stories. You know you can go. God stories about would coaches used to do for motivating players or trying to catch players airs. I Never Scotty Bowman Scotty. Bowman got tired of his team's missing curfew. So Scotty Bowman would go down. And I can't remember which city this went down to the front desk of the hotel and I think curfew was midnight. Went Down to the front desk of the Hotel at eleven thirty gave a stick to the dorm and said do me a favor when the guys come in get them to sign the stick and we'll we're going to auction off to charity so the next day Scott he goes into the locker eight. These are all the guys that showed up after midnight. Their names are on the stick so I mean stuff like that is you know. That's all part of an old school. Coaching you mentality. Whatever you think of it? Yeah it's and I mean at the heart of the the coach player relationship and this and this is why we'll talk specifically about. Bill Peterson Chemo. Lucas IT'S A. It's a point I think people are missing. I mean at the heart of a coach player relationship. It's a power relationship. I'm the coach. I control the most important part of your career. I control your time I control. How many starts you're gonNA make I control? Will how many at bats you're going to get I control if you're going to be coming in the ninth inning. I control if you're going to start back to back games like Then I control. You're earning power. This is sort of at the route. That's the traditional relations traditional relationship. Is that changing it is in the NHL. I find this fascinating because the four major sports in North America all right now if you look at sort of the players relationship to to power in the game the NBA players leak. It just is players are getting lots of money They make a a lot of money from shoe deals so they're comfortable financially outside of what they're earning contract like Shaquille O'Neal didn't spend any money he made playing basketball. He invested all all he lived off. His shoe deals coaches have no power over anybody in the NBA the NFL's you know you're disposable piece of meat. There's no such thing as guaranteed contract. Baseball's always had a very very strong players association. It's Kinda splintered now and I think we're kind of in an every man for himself air but what's happened in hockey is there has been an an influx of really talented really young players and because of the way the NHL 's collective bargaining agreement is setup. You Essentially Ashley. Now have a bunch of guys who were twenty two twenty three or twenty four making eight million dollars a year under contract for five six or seven years and that's the biggest difference to me. Is that players always used to make more than the coach and this is specifically the NHL players always used to make more than the coach. But they've got more term So if you're Mike Babcock and you've got three years left on your contract you've got Mitch Monitor. He's got six years left. He's making ten and a half million dollars a year. How do you? How do you motivate that? How do you manage them? It would take us. Ice Type. Doesn't matter to him take two minutes ice time away from me. I'm getting ten million dollars a year and by the way I got a job here for years down the road and you say that so hockey ocoee more than any other sport I think is is going through. This and hockey is going to half the data and and and the coaches are going to have to. The players aren't going to have to adapt. The coaches are going to have to debt. And this this gets the Bill Peter Situation and and why I think this is particularly vile you know first of all. I mean there's no statute of limitations and racism so I've heard people will make the case. Well he said this ten years ago three organizations ago he wasn't even with the flames. You have somebody claiming that he. He used the N.. Word that he used a racial epithet. You have that player's teammates backing you up. You have subsequent you have players coming out. Who played for Bill? Peterson Peterson Carolina. Saying hey he physically abused me. You have players coming out and saying yeah not only did he. Physically abused Rod brindamour. Not only did he did. He physically abused guys. But you've got player saying oh by the way we spoke. The Ron Francis who was general manager the team at the time and he didn't do anything wrong. There was something but the Akeem loose. The situation is really. I find it really bothersome. Because what was he supposed to do. You know these guys are playing in the American Hockey League They're not making a lot of money. Bill Peters when he was coaching that team the Rockford ice hawks. He held the future in his hands. so if you're a guy like a chemo Lou and you're trying to establish yourself or you're trying to get your career going going to your general manager and writing out your head. Coaches racist is probably not not a good career. Move and I think more than anything else. What this says is that at that time? Ten years ago that organization Chicago Blackhawks. There wasn't a structure in place. I mean I'm not gonNA say that guys don't yell things at each other in the locker room or on the ice and we we know they do. We know that racial epithets unfortunately are still a part of the sort of the on Ice Onfield Dialogue and sports. I don't think this happens now though like if we were rewinding this Chemo Lou had been Ah. I don't think that happens. 'cause he reports to somebody or he goes on social media then and it's taken care of but it bothers me that people are saying that some people are saying well you know ten years ago and nobody else stood up. It's people have to understand Dan that again. This gets to that that power relationship between the player and the coach. There's no way the player could you know what are you GonNa do. You're going to sacrifice your long term financial future because of this. I mean I'm not. I'm not saying that means. Bill Peters is right but hockey I think more than any other more than any other sport just by the the nature of how players are developed. Kids leave home. Kids go to town cities. They're billeted with people dependent on the structure. They are dependent on on the power structure there absolutely dependent on the power structure. And I think maybe that's what has created this culture around hockey the the NHL is really really trying. I think to find a way and I mean the NHL in general teams coaches are trying to find a way to deal with this the new age the players the the ultimate lesson the lesson from hopefully for this whole thing with Bill Peters is that there has to be every organization has to look at itself often say do we have the structures in
"cfl w." Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"I mean, TJ I know it's too, but the main thing he has to do is don't listen to outside world and pay attention to his coaching staff call, pick up the phone call, Matt liner. And you mean you got you know cars poem, or you got us over so many guys, you know, then you can call and get vice from and just don't worry about the social media in all those focus on what you need to do is binding and winning your teammates, pushing your teammates to play the best they can be, you know, that's what he has to do right now. Don't worry about what everybody else talking about. Just lean on the mental and the people you have went through that university and is used that and you should coaching staff, and I really feel like you'll be okay. I know it's tough. I know it's tough, but at the same time you got people around, you can help you get through that situation. Last time we saw you play vents, you're in. CFL plan for the rough riders, have you given up on playing professional football. Definitely shot out to the schedule. Appreciate. Appreciate. There's a rat right now. Here's a wrap. So I'm enjoying being a flag football coach for my son, and then also just helping out being on campus at UT sitting in a meeting room or doing private workouts for a lot of young quarterbacks that's going to be coming up and Jalen hurts down in Alabama, man, proud of you, man keep fighting through the. What do you think of Johnny Manziel going to the CFL? Do you think that's the right path for him to get back into the NFL? Yeah. I mean, I, I'm proud of Johnny minis going through a light went to a lot man, and he really loves the game as you can tell as you can see. So I'm glad he played in spring lead and I'm glad he's trying to further his career. I mean, a lot of things happen, you know, a lot of mature things happen in his life, so I'm just happy that he's growing and continuing to fight and not listen to everybody telling you just give up on what you love doing every day. So I'm proud of you. Never let nobody tell you what to do. Man, just keep working and keep fighting if no happen release you tried. So I'm happy trying at least. Yeah, Vince you're a great player. For this question. We saw Lamar Jackson, go out there and week one NFL. Used in multiple positions. You know that position, you know how you can affect the game various ways. You think that they're utilizing him affectively and will it work. Yeah. I mean, the game is changing. Man. The game is changing and you know, I hate to say this. The defense is getting good and they fast they moving around. So you know, the biggest thing is I want Lamar to do is what I told him and get which deficient coordinator man and ask them questions, what would you do to me if you was playing me, you know, take the time I was sick, which defends online course in Witcher linebackers coach of sit which DB coach, you know, do these things behind the scene when you have time. 'cause one is getting when they give you the keys. So that starting position job, you have to be ready. But I do like what they're doing with them. They prepared to play. They using the talented he has and everything else is gonna fall in to play of, you know, making those right reason NFL because it's not easy when you get that priests read that bogging your hand, they might show you one thing and there's a whole total different thing. So it's a fast game, but I really feel like the hard work that he's putting in. He's going to catch onto it and more reps at practice in game situation. He gonna continue to get better and better..

"cfl w." Discussed on The Dan Patrick Show
"And you go, hey, I could throw football, hey, I'm, I'm great at improvising CFL. It's going to be a challenge for Johnny Manzo. There've been quarterbacks that should have done better there that didn't, and then their quarterbacks you go. I'm surprised that he's that good in the NFL, but Manziel gets the start, maybe maybe in a couple years back in the NFL couple of other stories, Tom Brady devastated by Robert Kraft's decision during Deflategate this according to a new book that Brady was upset. Set saying, why am I not getting support be support? I deserve on this thing. This one, it just doesn't go away. When it comes to deflate gate, the patriots always appeared to be aligned on their stands and fighting the NFL on the issue. Accepting the eventual punishment handed down. However, Cording to the new book Brady was furious with Robert Kraft for accepting the four-game suspension. The league gave to Brady something the quarterback saw as his owner selling him out Brady, watch craft, make the announcement during a press conference, and he felt like he had been thrown under the bus. So Brady's watching this going, you gotta be kidding me. I'm not getting any support. I deserve more with this thing. I think we're starting to get the real story behind the patriots, which makes it even more mazing that they've been this successful that Brady and Belle check. It's it's a functionally dysfunctional relationship there. It feels like Robert Kraft has had to pick sides here and at times citing with the league to have this go away with deflate gate, but then siding with Brady maybe to get rid of Jimmy Garoppolo.

Fifty six the team made a shocking announcement. Yesterday afternoon Sparrow had complained about chest pains and went to the hospital. On Thursday a source, tells ESPN's Chris Mortensen Speranza underwent tests and was released. On Friday the source. Said Sperone his wife found him unconscious yesterday morning as they prepared to leave for church but could not. Revive him he was the assistant and assistant with the Minnesota Vikings for the past. Two seasons he worked for nine NFL teams over nineteen years with head coaching stints in Miami and on an interim basis with Oakland Raiders in two. Thousand fourteen he also held positions with the Browns with, Washington Jacksonville Dallas San Francisco and the New. York Jets and you may remember one of the better single season coaching jobs in, recent memory two, thousand eight the. Miami Dolphins remember they got Chad Pennington who was basically Discarded after the jets got Debretts farve there was this obviously the, the, the, New England Patriots have been a dynasty in the. AFC and have owned the AFC, east the, Miami Dolphins in, two thousand eight with Chad Pennington lost their first two. Games and then won eleven of their next. Fourteen coming off a year where they went one in fifteen that eleven. And five season for, the Miami Dolphins in two thousand eight is the only. Year in the last. Fifteen that the patriots didn't win the division and that eleven and five season is the only time in. The history of the National Football League that a coach led his team to the. Playoffs after his team won one game or less the previous year did a fantastic job with that Miami team in reading number of the tributes from. Players who played for him not just in Minnesota but, also Miami and other spots a devoted family. Man his daughter apparently just got married two weeks ago four grandchildren and so the, NFL world mourning, the loss of.

In Montreal and you're hearing time and again about, you know. What are the big issues between players and owners in the NFL is players one, guaranteed, money Owners aren't willing to give, it to them But they can look no further than the second pick in this year's draft saquon Barkley the New York Giants according to NFL media's Ian Rapoport are. Set to sign Barclay to his. Rookie deal that'll pay him thirty one point two million. Dollars guaranteed a four year deal fully guaranteed now rookies obviously have a lot less wiggle. Room than they did pre two thousand eleven the new CBA basically dictates with these guys are going to get the deal comes with, signing bonus of just over twenty million dollars and there's apparently, offset language that will keep Barclay from quote double dipping in the event of the giants. Cut him before the end of the contract and also it's worth pointing out that New York holds, the fifth an option for a fifth year which, is the case for all first round picks but it goes to show an Zeki l. fully. Guaranteed deal from the Dallas Cowboys didn't. Payments much money didn't go. As early in the draft. Is partly did there's a sticking point there Players and.

Terrell Owens skips HOF ceremony, eyes CFL
"No and king or your wife did yeah we were sitting around trying to think of a name. For like about three weeks after I signed with NBC and every name somebody. Hated we've thought of two hundred names and one day and. King says hey isn't the Sunday night In called football night in America why don't you call your, column, football morning in America And I said. To myself Sam flood is going to like that name We're going to get some agreement on that one right. There I think king deserves a little cut of the KYW due, to I think she gets a little cut All right the topic. Right now in the NFL was what Oh look out We got a spill and I'll six-year. Bill the, topic I, mean I guess unfortunately is Terrel Owens or. Levy on Bill let me start. With, Sarah head Do we know what his gripe is I assume I mean look I I'm assuming that it's the I got into my third year and the way I look at that basically is. That two thirds of the three hundred and some odd people who were? In. The pro football hall of fame got in after? Their first year of eligibility does? That, make Harry Carson and Ron Yeary and Lynn Swann and, Fran tarkenton does that make them less hall of, fame deserving does that make their bus. Different no it's just the silliest controversy in hall of. Fame history, but it's, a controversy so we must address it but. Also this is what he wants I mean Yeah if he went there and, just said thank, you ungrateful and it's great to. Join these these fellow hall. Of famers You know there's there's no I was out in, Tahoe last week that golf tournament. Aaron Rodgers out there but was out, having a drink with a bunch of older guys like people of? Peter king's, generation and one of them said to me does he have any idea. How for the, rest of his life I mean, he's going to be able to make money off the hall of fame now if he this is, the hall of fame is he going. To be able to make money off the hall of fame and this was a this. Was a, very well respected person and so you know the? Hall? Of fame sort. Of shuffles, business hall of famers ways I mean are they, going to do that with Tarallo wins now I don't know it's I that's, not the. Biggest reason or the biggest anything but it just strikes? Me, that he's cutting off his nose despite, his face but, whatever should he have been a. First ballot hall of Famer I mean I've supported him all along I didn't think it was some, grave injustice because I do think there were some things against him Nobody. Wants to hear this but he was a third of a teammate that's all there is to it And he dropped the ball a lot particularly later in his career. I in my. Opinion though without any question he deserves to be in the pro football hall of fame I, supported him I'm glad he's in and I could? Care less whether he's in canton or not in Kim, do we view Randy moss differently than we do. And I think we do because Randy moss. To me I look at Randy moss is a singular, player I don't look at Tarallo Enzi singular player I think Randy. Moss was such an incredible, deep thread so incredibly great stretching the field and dominating games with his speed And his hands deep downfield. He had great hands I I mean I. Look at Randy moss is being fifteen percent better player, whatever the number save and tear allowance also he's grown up yeah Yeah he has Randy moss who's really has yeah yeah he's shirt. And now Tara loans wants to still make a comeback in the CFL I read I just read that this morning on my way up here in teaches own if he wants to do it I will say, this few years, ago when, I.
