Particularly, it forced the sale of the companies US operations to Oracle earlier this week. EPA gains would likely welcomed the freedom from ten set. If we're going to be honest, the company only owns a minority share albeit forty percent of the company. But Tim Sweeney Fico has publicly stated that tencent doesn't control the decision making within the company that also makes it incredibly unlikely Sweeney's handing over user data in droves to.

What's up? Hey, so I got fired. One ticket put the Sox to win the World Series. I'm all of that. So how about that ticket? That's a huge ticket for you. One. Make some money. What do you think before the season like you're going through is a shortened season pandemic season, but you still had a good feeling. Oh, I get it back in early March, people like most of everything, Shut down. But I'm okay. I think once you get in They get the first series out of what will be going.

I'm gonna take that. Okay? I'm going to take it out of the way. It's like I'm having a blast. You know $20 partly there, $10. It's been awesome. I think tomorrow unless he extends it again, which he shared with Kobe. I think tomorrow is the deadline to sign up for Any of appoints Bet Rivers Draft Kings fan To sign up online after Saturday. Correct me if I'm wrong. I believe you have to start going to Hawthorne Rivers East ST Louis toe, one of them down there where you can sign up in person only then so you're going to set up an account. It's a lot of fun doing now. You know the thing that we have talked about because we can't turn a blind eye to it. Positives for this team have been and Jeff, you know, this is well the youth along with the mixture of the veterans, you spend $200 million in free agency. You should be able to increase your chances to get to the playoffs and this happened right along with the young players. Do you know the other side of it? You don't know what you get outside of Michael. You don't know what you get outside of Giolito. You're hoping to have one of those one of two, if not both of those young starting pictures to be able to come through. And like it was evidence yesterday. The defense is scattered shot. You know, it's it should be better. But we know that that is an Achilles heel for this team, but otherwise the offense some more times than not overcome some of the issues defensively. Oh, no doubt about it and look as they enter on the as they embark upon the playoffs here. The lineup is not really a concern, especially that first round, depending on who they end up playing. If right now they line up against the Blue Jays. You will go ahead and feast on their pitching. In all likelihood, you feel good about that match up. But as thie if they do want to make a deep run, and you know cash in on caps ticket there, it's going they're going to it would be beneficial. I would say for them to take care of that first. Siri's in quick in quick manner, because The way the plants are structured this year. There's not going to be nearly as many ofthe days as there has been in the past. Now, if you could take care of your take care of business and beat Win that first round in two games, as opposed to having to extend it to three. You can maybe get two Giolito and Kaiko quicker, you know, and I'm encouraged by everything. Dane Dunning's done So I hope he gets the ball in the third game if it gets too, that you but I think teams in the playoffs this season are going to be. It's going to benefit them greatly if they could take care of serious quickly because they can then potentially lean on their frontline starters, as opposed to having to go deep in the rotation again, those off days are going to be different than normal playoffs. True, so we talked about this going to break Are you disappointed that the socks are going to make this run either? In a bubble down in California, eventually the Texas for the World Series if they get there. And the first round at home in an empty stadium. That's sad. I mean, it is what it is Cove. It's a reality. It's a thing so Yes, it's disappointing that both the Cubs and the White Sox are gonna play postseason games with no fans. What is it is it is what it can find City Hall. That's what it is. It is what it is what it is. It's like, Well, here's the thing for you and I, especially for me. I wouldn't be a guarantee right anyway, probably in a bar. We're doing the appearance, thirties playoffs. I probably wouldn't be there if it be so much be so much fun for the Cubs and socks that people have fans for the playoffs, but it's reality. I can't fight it bad, but it's what it is Tony Toni tone who listens every day, says future apologies to my fiance. But I come home singing the Andriana First Chicago commercial theme song tonight, You could solely blame at the Cat man, and that's their way. That's outstanding. She sounded to me. Phenomenal.

Dixie Dixon, she talked about world. He's got he's working on what letter here we're GonNa talk about Nikon and all that good stuff dixie welcome to the show. Are you doing amazing thanks so much for that great intro I. Appreciate it. It's all true. It's all. You're awesome. I'm excited to be here today and chat with you. Cool. Well, let's talk about stuff. So you know we've just you know full disclosure you and I did an interview before over on the sky loon behind the scene podcast that I also host but I wanted to invite you onto this show is well because I want to. kind of slightly different direction and. Introduce you to this week and photo audience as well as the behind the scene audience if you subscribe to behind the scene search for it and go subscribe to that one too. So Yeah. Good stuff. Who is Dixie Dixon? Ukraine. So I've seen your name in fact. I. was just doing a livestream with a friend of mine who's also a Nikon shooter and I said I gotta go I. GotTa Hang Up because I'm getting ready to talk to Dixie Dixon and he's like I was like, have you heard of Dixie Dixon? He's like Have I heard of Dixie Dixon. It's like, have you heard of Prince? So. Tell us how did you get from where you were to being kind of a household name in the in the photography world? I appreciate that so much. Gosh it's been a really crazy adventure. I've had photography jobs. So I started out shooting the cheesy little league pictures shot with film actually was the Nikon F G camera, and so we'd be doing all those cheesy soccer ball like posing with a soccer balls and Just, the team photos and stuff like that, and then I ended up joining the yearbook staff and my image ended up making the cover of the yearbook. So for me, it was like a way to get out of my shell a little bit. I'm very much a sort of an introvert. So it was sort of felt rebellious and helped me get to know people and communicate and have fun and so that for me was like a moment. Wow maybe I could actually do this for a living. So I ended up going off to college I would have loved to majored in photography, but I really thought. Maybe I should figure out the business so I can actually figure out how to make a living doing this. So I ended up studying. Entrepreneurship at TCU and fell in love with the business side and then I ended up studying abroad with a world renowned fashion photographer I literally googled fashion photography study. Abroad. And there was one program through Syracuse University. So I got to go and study with Jeff Licata and listen over in London and Prague and do my first big fashion shoot, and that is when I really fell in love with the fashion photography side of things. So yeah, it's fun adventure I felt like it was yesterday but it's It's crazy how fast time flies and I got a job sheeting TV show and it just all came together. I have so many questions like I'm I'm curious how it works from. A lot of a lot of the twitter audience. Sure as the same question like the. One one path to success as a photographer seems to be fashion right? You got to be a fashion slash commercial photographer. You gotta be that person walking on said and you're in charge and you know the House music stumping in the background and models are doing their thing. There's a wind machine. Blowing. And somebody's up there like stevie nicks with the white thing. So how do you? How do you get there like what's what's the path from leaving school in entrepreneurship going through the internship and seeing how it's done from behind the scenes to building a brand like your brand and being sponsored and representing brands like Nikon? Yes. So it's been I always feel like as an entrepreneur you think you're just GonNa, go a nice gradual progression upward, but it's like. It's an interesting. It's an interesting journey if you will. There's ups and downs along the way. I. Mean my first few years I was shooting everything I was shooting weddings and portrait's and product. If anyone called me to do a shoot I knew how to do it. I said Yes to almost everything yeah. Just to just to pay the bills and whatnot so I ended up up to different websites My fashion website and then my commercial website I mean my wedding website and portrait website. So basically, when people would reach out and they wanted portraits, weddings, I was sent him to that website, and then all the fashioned stuff on my fashioned website was all three work that I had shocked my portfolio. So ultimately, you have to show the type of work that you WANNA be shooting. So I was wanting to shoot the fashion work so you have. To, go out and shoot that work, and then you're gonNA, eventually start attracting those type of clients. So then I started shooting for modeling agencies, they would do like paid portfolio shoots for their models. It started out as free portfolio shoots and then they ended up paying me to shoot their models for awhile and do that quite a lot and then that led to like two boutiques and showing them my work and ask him if I could collaborate.

Emily Frazer talks about this years Mosconi Cup
"The big topic right now is Mosconi Cup and. You had mentioned earlier that you've always got to have a plan B. Plan. C.. How How certain are you? that. Mosconi Cup is going to be able to go off the way that you would like it to. good question. I thing. No matter. What happens. The event like I said, we will always deliver at twelve hours of ten. If we can't have a crowd than, we will still deliver it twelve outs ten because we will be creative and we will think of ways the crowd can engage. And the event will have its atmosphere despite not being out to have a crowd bought. The main focus even though it has a lot of hard work, you know we witnessed it for the World Snooker Championship you can put in relentless hours and then all of a Sudden Diwan you can be nice spectators I would I'm more than happy to put in the right now to just have one hour spectators for the Messiah Cop. So the way that we see it is that we're working hard at new seating plans we're working hard with the government and we're also talking with the government constantly. Talking about new regulations, new boundaries we can push. Testing. And just what regulations are in place in order for us to get spectators in. A little bit hard with the Mosconi, Cup audience and people need to understand. Because the atmosphere is a lot more friendlier a lot more. how do I say drunker? It's a little bit harder to maintain social distancing and things like that. So. It may be slightly easier to have an audience in for a snooker event. Is for DOT. So for a pole event so that will factors that we really need to bear in mind and but we're not. Stepping off the off the gas. I want spectators in there and I'm going to do everything I possibly can unless I'm genuinely told by the government that we can't wait can. We are aiming for. Spectators. Appreciate that lot equal travel accommodation, and. And we've kind of been oversee very quiet about the the situation but it's genuinely because we have a yes or no answer right now. And what we are trying to do is trying to have seats in Paris proved government and. Until Achi what with that because we have to maintain social distancing but also, December, it is still quite waterway. Could have prevented things could've got was things critical are. So. Yeah. We have a plan through a all the way through to Z.. And whatever happens we're going to give it a rule and the outcome will be how we wanted it to be because win going to give up. So it's kind of note, the onset of everyone wants everyone just wants know whether we can have fans will not but tell you the real hard hitting truth I don't know right now and that is purely because this cart situation, we've got to two events coming up. Where we hope APPS spectators our champion of champions new proven in November and I will Mosconi Cup in. December. So. What we need to do is put measures in place in order to make sure that if the situation worsens. and. We have to go behind closed doors and for instance, Out Championship League event in June was completely behind closed stores. It was the first live spoke UK. Well let's make sure that there's a plan. You know. T in place so we can do that. So we are thinking of everything. We want the events go ahead. We're not GONNA quiet because we're just trying to keep everyone. Just, takes a long and we don't want to share any news. We all just genuinely trying to it. I, mean I could make the announcement aren't site brought Muscatine cops behind closed doors. They everyone is your answer and that would be easy out. Because there's still hope crossed that spectators. So let's plan for that avenue. Let's see if we can do it and let's try and deliver if not. Let. Me Go to plan. S. That that's that's the overall view on it. The whole aim for the beginning of lockdowns to be to try be as transparent as possible told players told fans. But. Right now is just still so uncertain for us and things can change the matter of hours and our first hand experienced it witnessed it so we just need to be. We just shouldn't make any brush visions.

The NCAA decides Nov. 25 will be the start date for college basketball's season
"Twenty fifth is the intended start date for college basketball season and the oversight committees. As I previously reported had suggested that this go to November twenty first and that was the formal recommendation sent to the D. One council last Friday five days ago however. I was told and I want to be clear in how I share this information I talked to Dan Gavitt on the record earlier today and I have a story Cuny that you can read with a lot of stuff about why we're here and what's next and etcetera etcetera. But what about to share with you? I never discussed with Dan Gavin any kind of regard this is just my info gathering and what I think happened here today. So as I understand it, Dan Gavitt was one of a few important people that was really adamant about having the season start on November twenty fifth, and then the oversight committee acids power to do look at everything considered all the MTV's the multi team events and said, you know what with so many of. These starting on November twenty third in a couple actually starting scheduled starting November twenty. First we think we best to bump up the season by about four days. Get it done on November twenty first and just use that runway toward the rest of the rest Thanksgiving week including Maui invitational etc. wouldn't you know GP The D. One council met today in the D. One council for those familiar one representative from all thirty two leagues that have Division One men's and women's basketball. And I don't know why it got to this point specifically but we are at November twenty fifth I mean I know one reason Gavin told me on the record November twenty fifth they estimate seventy, six percent of campuses. We'll have all of their entire student bodies off campus on November twenty five as opposed to twenty and twenty one is forty three percent and making these decisions for health and safety reasons is the first and foremost reason. For doing this also significant to meet November twenty one st never made sense at all because that's a Saturday we will have college football and we will be leading to an NFL Sunday you have Wednesday. Now November twenty five, we can start then you have day to yourself, there will be no NFL, there will be no college football there will be no MBA there will be no nhl there will be no pro baseball, the only major American. Sport, that will be played on Wednesday. November twenty fifth season will be college basketball and that in of itself I think is a positive up shoot. So

Sports Overload (MM #3465)
"The Maison with Kevin Nation could America be suffering from Sports overload right now? Well, if the early NFL ratings or anything, it could be Thursday when the NFL debuted it was the first day I think in history where the NBA Major League Baseball NHL NFL WNBA and I think tennis and golf were all playing. I think NASCAR ran a truck race Thursday, but people aren't watching the first few games of the NFL Thursday night football game. The first game of the season was down 16% from last year Sunday nights first NFL game was down 28% and it had teams like Los Angeles and Dallas to Big teams and numbers on Sunday games from both Fox and CBS were up and down wasn't really about football. Was it really about sports overload or was it something else? Nobody knows for sure, but I know people were watching the NFL ratings are tad bit concerned right now because everybody was waiting for the NFL to get back and well, it doesn't look like people are watching something bigger is afoot I think we'll figure out soon won't wage.
Dallas - World Series At Arlington, First Time At One Site Since 1944
"It's official Arlington Texas will host the world series this October. All the Games will be at the Texas Rangers. New. Ballpark. It marks the first time since nineteen forty, four that the world series will be played all at one site usually teams alternate between playing at home and on the road. But this year, the MLB wanted to cut down on the need to travel and allow players to stay in a so-called to bubble to avoid covid nineteen outbreak, and this will most likely be a neutral site. The Texas Rangers have one of the worst records in the league so they aren't expected to be playing in the world series.
Trent Grisham fans the flames of Dodgers-Padres rivalry after home run
"The dodgers manager Dave Roberts he complained that the padres didn't show Clayton Kershaw proper respect after hitting a big home run Trent Grisham hit the home run and he hit a home run in the sixth inning off Clayton Kershaw to tie the game. And he stared at down a little bit and. Dodgers Dave Roberts was not pleased. He said, I don't mind guys admiring a homer. Certainly, it's a big game big hit. Robert. Said after the game I really liked the player I just felt that to over kind of stay at home plate certainly against a guy like Clayton who's got the respect of everyone in the big leagues and what he's done in this game, I took exception to that because I think there's a certain respect that you give a guy like that if you homer against him. People I think then said, well, wait a minute the dodgers. Made. Member when they hit the home run off Madison Bumgarner didn't they turn it into a t shirt that they kind of. Sat there and. Admired their homerun. Kershaw himself had the right position. He I'm not gonNA worry about their team. Let him do what he wants.
They Call Us Mulan
"Low, and welcome to another edition of they call us Bruce unfiltered conversation about what's happening in Asia America I'm bill you and I'm Jeff Yang and this will indeed be an unfiltered podcast. It is one which we are going to used to. You know spend talking about something that we've been wanting to talk about for a while waiting to see for awhile, and that is Disney's live. On which released this weekend right before Labor Day and immediately generated quite a lot of opinions some of which we have. And we have guests, schools, opinions in some of them our guests We've seen quite a lot of in somewhere new. Who have with us? Phil? We have making her third appearance on they call US Bruce. Quite possibly a record. Record record. Our good friend formerly journalists of the with the Hollywood reporter most recently, she did a profile of Tima in Vanity Fair. Are Powell Rebecca Son Rebecca. Welcome. Thank you. I'm here to reinforce and ensure that my title as most frequent they call us first guest. On. Challenged. Bring honor to us all. We also have a first timer on the show hopefully, not the last frankie. Hong who is a freelance writer and illustrator and Frankie also grew up until age nine in China and has a pretty solid grasp. I think of some of the larger context around the film both as somebody personally in in more immerse perhaps in Chinese culture than those who grew up here but also just from being able to read and understand the conversations that are going on in. Chinese about this. Conversation's. Break Welcome, to the show. Thank you for having me. So excited to chat with you about this. Well, the conversation has been proceeding Apace has a not I mean literally the show. The movie itself debuted Friday, and I think that's we don't have any metrics yet that feels like a lot of people in have been streaming it despite the way that it's being presented and I mean, maybe that's the first thing to talk about a little bit like. The film. You know how the film has changed over time how it was what was meant to be in where it is now today in this time of Of Covert in quarantine in theaters basically being shot I think I wanted to ask if maybe everybody could share their relationship with the original film because that's that will serve you know color a lot of people's. The way they perceive this this new one right. Rebecca. What was it like watching the original Milan and how did that impact actually shape? This one for you. Yeah. Well, for me, I you know sort of your classic ABC asian-american Crawl one in the bay area you know live here lived in America, my whole life, and so I was I'm looking this up now and I was actually not cured with anime tomatoes teenagers. So I think I was sixteen when I came out Even, though I was no longer a small child I, what I remember most palpably was bursting into tears at the end of the animated film when Milan she's at the Forbidden City and she turns around and it feels like the entire country is kneeling and bowing and Reverend before her and the swell like I remember for years after that, like you know even without we watching the film just thinking about that moment. Just swallow emotion. Kind of being unprepared to see that image of of somebody who representative you know about as exactly. Who I was, you know just a small Chinese girl could be treated with such respect and honor. Listen. you know and reverence that was so moving. So that's what I remember most about you know the animated law and I think the way that made me feel is is sort of what I treasured about that movie even though it was, you know I haven't seen it in such such a long time. And Frankie in you grew up until age nine in China, right? Yeah in Beijing was. Yes. But you but you did also see Milan and I'm atrophies theaters or at home or so I was already living in the US by the time Mulan came out. So I washed it in Missouri were I was in the fifth grade and I think. My first exposure to Mulan the figure was actually when my mother taught me the ballot of Milan and made me memorize recited back to her. So this character was already one of my favorites. You know this cross dressing heroine who bests all the boys that was basically my dream I wanted to. Show everyone how amazing I could be. So you know I wasn't super. I had very mixed feelings about it because even as a ten year old I was you know I had trepidation about whether or not Disney was going to do a good job representing my culture, my country. So but at the same time, of course, I was really proud to see that they chose a Chinese story to bring to the big screen. So when I saw it I think I continue to feel mixed because there were these moments like the one that Rebecca described was incredibly moving but there were also these little things that day I guess. I don't know if I would say they got wrong because you can tell a story a story Harry you want, but it's more like there were very clear league. American narrative elements that were meant to. Get, a reaction out of American audiences. It makes sense but as a Chinese viewer I just thought while if you're going to represent my culture, why don't you get it right? Why don't you think that the? Quote Unquote correct representation can't also get a reaction out of Americans I remember when she dressed up for the matchmaker in the face was all white I just thought well, this reminds me of Geishas much more so than Address up Cheney's lady and maybe geishas is much more recognizable symbol. But why can't you just make her look uncomfortable as? A Chinese woman rather than something that looks more, Japanese. Their stuff like that.

"Or no money go out there and beat the hell out of your cells take two months off when you normally have about seven or eight and recovering back in the fall play again. Can't do that. So I, you know you're going to have every every star player is out. They have to be there as a what what's. What's the on the field? It's going to be trash. Exactly. Yeah, and Yeah it's. This is going to be a mass man I I understand. Like teams wanting to play and conferences wanting them to play, but you know it's Actions speak louder than words in a lot of the big players and recruits dipping out without even worrying about what the schedule is. GonNa look like that should tell the conferences everything. And do whatever they can. Yeah. As I said earlier, one second of SEC content. ESPN's do all they can get that. Don't care. They don't care what it is people will watch. So if they get two or three weeks out of it. For them. Wellness whatever this heart thing that's going on now Wilson I mean. I don't know that it's related whatsoever. I it doesn't sound like it is. But why is this coming out now I mean if there's that many kids that are having Art Issues or in inflammation around their hearts, you can't let them play. There's no way. It's there's so much. We don't know that I don't see someone with a potential for a career professional sports how you would risk. Whatever may come this? It's like every month there's something new that they're finding is an offshoot of this disease right virus or whatever you WANNA call it. It's just. Who knows you may get and then not have any symptoms and it's gone and it was like a cold and then you find out your liver's failing a year. Yeah. I. Don't need that. You know. Yup. So. It sucks it really not having. The fall it sucks. NFL they're going to plow through I mean all Jerry Jones today come out and we're we're playing. We got fans. They're setting up kind of informal bubble in one of the hotels. So I I have a feeling that. You'RE GONNA see more of that in they gotta police themselves half to the bubble method works if Unless you start bringing in, for instance, rent quote unquote, family We'll see how that goes for the NBA. But. Yeah I just don't see college football. Ending well. So if we can at least get some pro football least have one day a weekend where we can escape. I think we'll. All right. Well I mean, let's be honest. You know we like we like fantasy football and we like everything that goes around football and Everybody is in draft planning mode right now, and it almost feels like you're doing it for nothing like I was. Sending out a email to we have a family league and I was setting out like a keeper email and with the draft date and everything today and. I was excited to do it but I'd be lying if I didn't say that half of me was just like I don't know why I'm doing this 'cause. It just feels like it's going to be for nothing but I really really hope not. And I think we talked about discord I never even thought about this is that in the last year for the first time ever just do scheduling, we couldn't have a live draft we went to. The daily sites and I loved it some people hated it. So I was GONNA kick the League back off this year and someone said well. I. Think we're short You don't think about the fact that someone puts in all this money. They draft their team and let's just say six hundred players end up with Kobe. And now they're just pissed don't WanNa play anymore and good chance they won't come back. So I think what? I was GONNA cancel my league this year because it's so uncertain I'd rather not have people wouldn't that kind of money out right when you don't, you cannot control this you the guys that are playing daily fantasy. They say I have no idea what's going on guys you're lineups just a in tatters because they're moving in and off the I. R. and you just can't you can't predict anything. So the I think the daily for me. This year is the way to go can set my lineup on Sunday morning and have you know fairly certain gut feeling Durga play yeah. It's I. Mean You bring up a good point. So we've been running just for free and Fund Daily Leagues on draftkings in the group there undescored and I've been doing the NBA pretty often almost every day with the guys and I've had it at least twice now that Set My lineup in the morning for the afternoon. Games. and. Sometimes within just a couple hours a guy that was perfectly fine is out and you're just like well shit. Now, I can't change my lineup because the game started. So right it's that's to your point exactly. What's going to happen with football too young to yesterday on my team. Out late scratches. Again I'm not. We're not doing it for money. So I'm not following it down to the minute to make sure my rafters go. You would think guys are healthy. Arthur became time scratches the NBA So. Let me ask you this and beat completely honest and I'll give you my opinion tube. So NBA NHL they're rolling pretty well right I. Think they're they've done a pretty great job for the most part would how do you feel about? The no fans thing has that bothered you even in the slightest? I think hockey I. Don't like it. Because they play such a big part in the Games. It's got a whole different feel to it. But the NBA it's colours shit if. You're watching video game. You've got that set or whatever you WANNA call it that the backdrop everything feels right and we talked about on a preview show where you watch some of the simulated games and it takes you why violence is real. This product looks like that like these two worlds are so close now but I think the product has been so good NBA. I. Agree It's been so much fun to watch and I've I mean part of it as me being starved for sports and excited about the nuggets. But I've watched every nuggets game that I can, and then I've watched plenty of other games of teams that I just generally don't even give a shit about because. They've done such.

"Us at seventeen zero four three three six seven four and we do have quite a few voicemails and texts. I've not even bother looking at the dates because it doesn't matter at this point but they're gonNA get played in red clear out the closet. I mean it should be actually Kinda Fun. It's going through a fucking time capsule at this point. Oh good good. Good all right so our sports here. Yeah our favorite sport is here even though you know I mean it's still your favorite. It's still my favorites. I'm enjoying it for other reasons and I'm not falling into the goal of our our last win. But you know it is what it is. It's football's back. It's it's been a unite. Were talking the other day. It's been an interesting season for a lot of different factors. I guess yeah I mean what's what's one thing that stands out to you this season so far. What's got your I M Y? What has my is that. It's it seems like there's a lot kind of going against the grain you know we talked a lot. I think it may have even been our last episode we talked about. Oh you know Cleveland is going to dominate. And they're just they've got a lot of holes and they're not look I mean. Baker is not looking great at all. You know the. There's a lot of guys that have stepped in for injured starting quarterbacks and then there's a lot of third string quarterbacks that have stepped in for injured second-string quarterbacks and in some cases it's working out like you look at Minhsiu. I thought foles is GonNa do really well in Jacksonville. Misuse tearing it up so to me. It's just there's a lot of a lot of things I thought at the beginning that I'm not so sure of anymore including the other night. The colts taken it to the chiefs. Schumer boy I mean did they. Show us the blueprint. Do you think I came to you with that initial while moment and you kinda backed me off and look injuries and his ankle. I'm not yes I think it's because they they came out that night and I said we're going to run the ball down our throats and it worked. You know the Ravens tried it last year but they had to get away from it because you just can't stop them from scoring fifty that doesn't work and for them at work and the thing is they were losing. Db's I mean they were. Even the colts were banged up and they somehow slow the train down enough to get it done yet. Worked AND KANSAS. City's banged up now and it makes me think you know yeah. They're really injured. And that was a huge factor. But they're defensive line was questionable at best and then they just lost their best D. Lineman and I'll admit I've said it before I'm a Mahomes Fan. I like the guy. But he's not the same when you take away even a little bit of his mobility and it showed bigger than shit this last Sunday right so so fine to me. Believe me. It's fine with me too. You can keep that up. You know a week from tomorrow. That's fine by me. What about you what are you? What are you feeling from this year? So far I I like that. Some of the teams like okay. I have no attention to the forty niners. I think it's pretty damn cool that they're doing what they're doing at some of these legacy teams like the bills foreign one. I mean that's they're still chasing the Patriots but it's just just to see some different things happening I mean the AFC North as shit show AFC south. We thought to one year. I didn't think Texas we'RE GONNA win the division and the culture outnumber set comes in does what he does so. I think it's it's nice to see some refreshing names and talent and different things happening. I mean even the to your point. You know watching the Ravens steelers game. When we I think we saw Mason Rudolph soul leave his body. David third-string guy from San I in Alabama come in and he doesn't miss a beat and it's like these no name guys are just they're doing it and it's just something different now we've been. We've been blessed you and I have come up in the golden era of football quarterbacking but at some point. Okay can we do something different now and get a dose of in Baltimore Jackson but just give me something new some new battles the same teams in the top of divisions? But it's been some good moments it gets old. I mean I'm sure when your team is not old but it's like a little parody doesn't hurt you know that's the one thing that I honestly Eh. One thing that I will always love about hockey is every year is different. And even though there's always like one or two good teams when it becomes playoff time. Anything can happen literally and lightning last year. It was bigger than Shit right. Didn't we like three one seed? Go down or something like right was it was crazy and you know as much as I love basketball in the NBA. That's a turnoff. Because you hate seeing the Super Team. It's like the. Nfl is sort of getting that way with the Patriots. It's I just WanNa see somebody else. Something different when my team blows? I WanNa see just good other football when I'm watching it and and this year has been pretty damn entertaining honest right now. Even that I got the Skins Patriots game here on Sunday and that first quarter quarter and a half. They were putting them. I mean you the Patriots were. They were shook. So maybe we start to see the cracks and Antonio Brown is now. He's on twitter today. Begging follower to get in touch with the Patriots and tell them to bring me back is all that the guy's a clown but I've said it in our discord he. He needs professional help. I mean he's not he's not mentally okay he's clearly just reaching out for something because he's attitudes. Yeah I feel for him. He's gotTa get something something fixed up top because it's not clicking on all cylinders it's not while that's it puts in perspective how long it's been because we were talking about the raiders. We're making our predictions and we both said it's a matter of time before it blows up and and so far we're we're right player wise although they're not you know oddly. I think it's made the team come together a little bit. Oh yeah they're fired up and gone so good. That sounds good fucking scumbag though like you know I would never wish injury on anybody but if I watched that guy like shred both of his knees on live TV. I wouldn't even have an ounce of sympathy because he is that big of a piece of shit. Yup and I couldn't believe it I've heard at least two or three. The talking heads defending him. Yeah let that set at. Your silence speaks volumes. I actually read something that they were complaining that he was being targeted. It's like really okay. Well you kind of earned that bud if a if a player suspended and double digit numbers. He's not a victim. No I'm sorry is not to touch on something. I honest to God when Mason. Rudolph went like unconscious in while he was vertical and he just laid there. There's a I know you said this honor discord. There was a part of me that I thought to myself. I just watched a man die on national. Tv during a football game. Like He. I think I could have just been seeing shit but I thought I saw his hand twitch it did his right hand was just he lost a nurse control and it just went straight and it was. I. I wasn't joking I really. I thought potentially that it was over. I mean the way he went down it was it wasn't that hard of a hit at least didn't look like. I mean he did slamming his head on the terrorist. But when you hit the front I mean it was a solid shot but nothing that I would have expected that the lights went out. I think it just caught him right on the gym at the right spot. I hope he's okay because that shit was hair re yeah. He went home that night but he needs a little time off. Well Okay and so this actually brings up Elsa so first of all what the fuck is going on in Pittsburgh did their carts networking and this poor fuckers. GotTa try to walk off the field. Oh but then they even said there's a backup car on the other side. He didn't need it. I will do the same thing. Yes and the. Nfl came out later and said that he didn't need it. Did you see that? Come on? Yeah I know where he was. Oh if you can't physically walk off the field by yourself. You should be on a car. If you're going straight to the hospital you should be on a car or at least at least go back to the old man game really ambulance out run through about fifteen steelers and pick the boy up or put him on a Goddamn sled and slide. 'em offer something. I mean I don't know that to me if I'm if I'm anybody that's ever had a head injury in the NFL exhibit aid. You know what I mean. That's that's you're covering my medical for the rest of my life because Shit like this unbelievable. Hey we one. Yeah you switch back third string quarterback but we did it. You went into your. We're about to lose to Stanford quarterback and then you guys won. I thought this okay. Unless you're right here I think if there was any other field besides Heinz field but that wind Tucker's kick misses that thing that the English on that kick he doesn't. He doesn't Hook kicks. So I was sweating with last-second wasn't even cheer after the game. It was just Kinda really mine was a cheer but it was also like a you know. Yom Happy but still you know it it. It's a win is a win. At least we at least we WANNA fucking game. Finally I will say this. Amazingly FLACCO is not our problem not even close. He's not even like top ten of our problems. He's actually pretty steady for us. And it's we've got so many problems but you know they seem like they're growing in certain areas in our problem is we're sending an IRA every week. So that's not gonNA work out real well. So what about the other candidate? Nfl The kind where we pick players and root for them. I'm so we switched it up this year. We do have our old man league fantasy league traditional foreign one. Thank you very much. I gotTa if you knew that yes I had to defense in and on I should be eating you handily. So yeah so honest so we switched my league that I've had for fifteen years. This is the first time I could not get everyone together. And we have one role you have to draft your own team. We just couldn't do it so I thought okay we're GONNA try to handle and I had some people that were. I don't WanNa do something new. Then we got on. I love it. I don't know how you felt about it. I know you've been Fan Dole player for a long time but this is your first time doing a league. I think right yeah. I'm having a blast with it. Honestly it's it's as much as I miss a traditional league. It's a nice way to mix it up honestly because I'm in three. Other leagues in years would have been the fourth and sometimes there's a lot to manage so for me. It was a nice mix up. I like it. I like to have a different perspective. Sometimes I can get McCaffrey and cheer him on Wednesday scoring six touchdowns whereas I probably wouldn't have him under a regular league so it's I'm getting a root for different guys and it. Drains draws me into different parts of different games. That I really wouldn't care about an most circumstances. So you're you're in first place am I had no idea. See your six hundred sixty six points. Six forty five. I'm on your heels. Abed the thing. I like about vandal. Honestly is I get like a certain amount of satisfaction from picking the guy that was like super affordable but like sort of like not not diamond in the rap is probably the wrong way to put it but he was affordable and sort of a steel and then he goes off. I love it when we have. Those moments will fuller. Oh my God did you have him no no. I didn't know I agree. Though when you get the guy was like five thousand fifty five hundred and he he drops one hundred and a couple of touchdowns. Yeah that feels good now. I say that as I'm actually a McCaffrey owner in the in two leagues. 'cause they keep relief I drafted him like last year. So beautiful feeling good about that. That little that little fuckers carrying me so fun in one Lee You'll you'll really like this in one league so I drafted him last year wait..

"So I thought that the FAA Cobb for the British team for the English seems would be the way to still have a presence locally, but I didn't see the Champions League as apparel but it's a good point. And maybe you know the seeding of the Super League if you want to make it a little bit more on court. Married base should be the sixteen teams that made it to the knockout stages of the Champions League. Interesting. And, and that so you start the league, you know, and so they're the Champions League will take a an even added interest in the will be more interesting for to watch now. You know, could you have actually the Champions League three year and parallel with a Super League you're talking about already right players that are so overloaded? I'm I'm not sure that you can sustain that base. This would be the question where I think it would you know that's the balance where it's like all if you're playing a league competition every week. And if you did the champions as well you're you're playing in the mid week, and how do you how do you properly, train for that marathon, if you will, because that would be, you know how do you balance the fatigue? That would be so interesting. Well, but that's why the rich teams will do so much better right. Because it will have like twenty. Thirty players that are, you know, two hundred and they will just rotated like crazy and the teams that are poor cannot make their now that to me, you make that Super League it will really drain that Super League will attract all of the talent, I think it'd be very hard for a player not to be tempted by Super League presence. Right. So I really think that the Super League will eventually suck up an out all the talent from European leagues and. It will be like a like, yeah I league be in all the domestic leagues. It will be very hard to keep think, and interest. I like her much in your proposal right in your first proposal to make two teams and one that goes back to the National League the next year. But you know, I just think having twenty teams of which ten of them come from countries that I mean country's just leagues that are not particularly powerful. Not all that compelling to, to a Super League. Faye? Conflicted abo- Super League. I think you know, I think the parts of the problems of the premise of Super League. Right. I do think you need a little bit of diversity, and you need a little bit of that culture. Clash, right? I mean you need a team from Turkey playing team from Italy. I mean you know, not to in any way of disrespect to Turkish teams. I mean they've, you know, for they're not heights right now, but they've made deep runs into the Champions League before. But I think in any form of Champions League you need to have tremendous turnover because I think if if the Super League exists, and there's not a very real threat of not being in the Super League, or she me of being in the Super League next season. Players are going to get super apathetic, and you're gonna see the best players in the world start to perform poorly, because it's like, well, you know, so I think you need some sort of system that sees a lot of these teams going back to their domestic leagues and therefore those domestically battles are vital to the next season of who's going onto the Super League and who's coming back and, you know, something along those lines because I do agree that a Super League by itself, kind of its own semi closed off entity that, you know, I don't know gets reevaluated every couple of seasons or something like that is, is not in anyone's best interest in the, but it's again it's I agree with you. It's always really fun to have this, like a Turkish team the talian team. Right. I mean for the fans is phone. It's, it's really interesting. And I get the question is, is a Turkish team. As you said, respect to to the Turkish league. But is the Turkish team sort of a punching bag for everybody else in the league? Right..

"I mean, I think that, you know, you're a galley -tarian streak hero, actually is the warring down the luge of quality. I don't think has to be a balance between when you're talking about Superleague. It cannot be Europa league. You're a beleaguered is a geography lesson, right? I mean you go tool. This country said you don't even know existed. Ed, it's okay. It's fun. You know you end up playing but coup and places. Like bed, which might be fun for someone working on TV. But to me, the Super League is not about geography of the reciprocating. It's about getting the best quality teams and if that means that you're going to have in a ten Spanish teams in ten English teams in the Super League, but you have the best twenty teams in the world. That's what happens. And and you know finding a way to multi Baid teams to become the best in the world to be part of the Super League. I think is what makes sense to me, rather than a criterion of geography dispersion in the reciprocating. So I will like bore you know, I go a little bit against your galley -tarian push. And like to be more of an elite kind of selection criteria. So and how does that. How does that evolve from one season to the next? I mean my concern is. I don't think be stagnant. It can't be the same eighteen or twenty teams every season. But and it can't start out. I don't know to me it feels I understand. Yes. The appeal of saying, let's go and get the absolute best teams but to just kind of cherry, pick and say, well, we'll take let's see maybe Juventus, and NOP Alie, and maybe inter-milan from Italy. And then we're going to take, you know, these five teams so we'll take three teams from Italy and five teams from Spain, and five teams from but only two teams from France. It feel so it feels like when you watch kids at the park, and they're like, they're like, you know, I brought the ball so I get to decide and it's like we'll just because you have them, you know, you're really going to face a situation where it's the twenty richest teams in Europe. So why don't we have that be the criteria? How much money you have? That is the thing you know, this is a narrow were, you know, everybody thinks they are above average, like leg begun here. Everybody's smart everybody. Scancen everybody's above average in. That's not the case, right? I mean you're going to have. Teams are above and teams are below average and the Super League to me is about all of the teams that are about average, and it's not fair and clearly the teams are going to make to the top or the teams that most likely are the ones that have the biggest checkbook, you know, my I'm not Super League kind of guy and for the reason why you wanted to mention the risk of the looting the quality of the domestic leagues, but it means the champions leagues goes away, right? You're gonna have the Champions League and the Super League in peril. I don't think that that would happen, isn't it, it wouldn't the Champions League be like the equivalent of the FA Cup. I mean it's just it's, it's been knockout round tournaments that partners the Super League you. I mean, that's, that's a good view. I mean. You know, I always thought that in order to keep some domestic interest the teams in the Super League, we're still play their respective cups in their own countries, is what I mean so that they would steal remain an attachment to where they came from fair..

"But I like to start from an egalitarian point of view. I don't want people coming in. We create this Super League and they say you know what? This is totally biased. You know, look, there the let's let's pretend the Netherlands, where the tenth ranked team but, you know, look at acts, they made it to the semi-finals of the Champions League wide, aren't we included? So here's my. Here's my model number two Willie. Same beginning premise two teams from the top ten leagues. We got those same twenty teams to start in this model again I like the ten. Team. Relegation it feels right. To me. So every at the end of the season, the bottom ten teams bottom half of the table. Boom, you're gone doesn't matter. Now, you know, doesn't matter where you finish compared to your other nation. If both teams from England finished in the bottom ten boom, you're both gone. Now, the ten teams to replace them or will always be the, the champion of each of the ten domestic leagues now. So you get the taint those same ten leagues reinforcing the, the Super League but only with one team. But what I find so intriguing about this give it a few seasons. And I think we can come to an equilibrium state, which will be fascinating constantly evolving, as to what are really the best teams out there because if the Spanish leagues Spanish teams are always finishing in the top, and never getting relegated. But then they're consistently getting one additional team every season, the Super League is going to start to. Really reflect the power of the domestic leagues. And you might find that the Super League does have five or six Spanish teams in it. I don't know what are your thoughts on this one? Kilifi were six teams from one league. But I do like what are you? I know that, that, that, that's in, in your gene, the galley Teheran kind of guy, but let's just from a place where we're saying that Europe. European teams they all have something to offer. And if you have five or six let's say the two teams finish in the top ten right? I mean so now next season, you're going to have three teams if the three Spanish teams all finished in the top ten you'll now have four Spanish teams. So that's how it would over time. One time. Better because I'm gonna tell you. Let's say that rail Madrid Barcelona are the two Spanish teams and Barcelona, gums in second, right to, to Real Madrid. Not second as in first and second. But in your description, just below Real Madrid's ranking. And so you lose Barcelona in the Super League and you actually keep an Andrew lack from Belgium..

I think it's the same five articles that just have high google ratings but whatever whatever it takes to get some new merchandise. I'll take it funny to you and me see.

I don't even think he does it in a commercial though. Now he just he just talks in his voice and says there. Little tagline kind of a letdown. It is all right. Yes I'll tell you find a so happy father's Day. Yeah you too man. Yeah I had quiet weekend. We really didn't do a whole heck of a lot Hit a barbecue joint. Hit a brewery. Really don't get anything else on father's Day so that was good so yeah did that not a rant but I got that stink artem the wife and the barbecue place well and my sister and brother in law ended up there too and they got pissy as well so we get there at one on a Sunday. You think I'm going to go house. Some smoked meat. No they had their brunch menu. So you couldn't get all the things that were good and I I got really shitty and Pissy like a little child. I wanted smoked every hour brisket and pork barbecue sandwiches right so I thought I was in my right to throw a hissy fit in the middle of a restaurant but apparently that's not acceptable. Okay did you. Did you throw the fit at the people or at Gillette? You're just a me just stopping at my chair. I can like you know a six year old. Who got his toys taken away? I mean that would piss me off to you probably. Yeah we drove a half hour up there. It's a great place and I just wanted what I wanted. I couldn't have it so when you put it like that. You do sound a little bit. Ruka saulters yeah. I am even worse. We were there after two o'clock so other people started getting the real menu as I'm finishing up not what I wanted and it didn't make it any better and it was a buffet. Two o'clock smoke. Smoke meets inside. I couldn't have okay. So not only did they say no. You can't have this then. They showed you what you weren't allowed to have in walking out the door. Y- in bounty like it was a free for all Chili Bar Collard Greens and you know brisket. Cutting station ask wasn't real happy. That's fucking awesome. I'm sorry but we got over and I was. It was all all good sadder better than could have been a disaster but I wasn't a total child so yeah I mean I would've cut shit over that too but I still probably would have thrown an equal fit. Yeah so anyway. How was your day? It was good. We went so the oldest birthday was last Thursday. And that's why we went camping. She wanted to go camping birthday. Snow Thursday Friday came back pretty late Saturday and then we kind of celebrated her birthday Saturday so Sunday morning was slight recovery and then it was great it was it was just pretty chill. I just grilled some stuff at home. We welcome to new pet into our house ago. Yeah so it was good honestly. It was just nice and chill. Yeah the pictures of that dog. You've got an ox on your hands but it's adorable. Yeah she's she's laying at my feet right now. As a matter of fact he's awesome the rescue thing good job. Don't white pet store animals people? Don't don't do rescue where you can for real. I mean I'm not. I'm not even like an activist and it's just it's the right and smart thing to do. There's just so many animals out there that need homes and probably aren't in the best situations you know. The word rescue is legit so we get to spay neuter. Yeah did okay so you have to hear like. That's Oh yeah. Yeah Yeah I think they all do. You can't yeah. They're not going to give you a dog. It's not fixed here. No make it worse. Go contribute to the problem. Yeah you have to like before they even let you do anything. You're on the phone making the appointment right there and they actually follow up and if you if you blow the appointment off they come take your dog. Oh I thought they had to do it before you got ours was now they were. They were pretty lenient but they also very clear you know if we find out you fuck around and and don't do this. We're coming to get your dog. So and they chipped them so they'll find it out. Chef get yeah all right so well. Good good weekends all around. It was great good so we'll just skip over the NBA finals. No no hold on. There's only one part that I want to touch on. Actually two things here is A. I'm free of baseball talk because that's right for past the NHL Finals now. I no longer required to talk about it I thought for sure that you remember that part I was just GonNa keep going stanton down now. No chance I have established down is that I was fucking a right like right on the money. Yeah Yeah I got game one. That was about it. I called Raptors and six. I'm surprised we're not listening to audio right now. But no you nailed it. I I give you all the credit in the world. They they stuck it to them just had a feeling about quiet and the way he was playing and I am not at all upset the SEGALLA. I mean I will say I didn't like that guy's got injured because I don't like seeing that no matter who it is well mostly but it it was just. I think I don't think it would have mattered. Honestly I just I just don't I don't think eighty was himself. I just think that their time Kinda had come and man how quickly this thing is crumbling. Oh Yeah I mean it. It's going to be not funds eason. No now the Lakers doing making moves. And it's it quick overnight. This thing just fell apart you so get your quick impression of what of what the Lakers gave up for for Davis. What are they gonNA baller? Yeah they got rid of a baller. You know about this. I'll make you wh- being worth it to you or no. I think you've got to go all in you got a window. I mean it's right there now. You see Golden State.

"Let's bring it back. Let's bring him back. Anyway, I do like to building on what you're saying though that about sedan that I imagine. I kind of imagine that anytime his team is down at halftime. He's just like, brings everyone in is like told you about the time headbutted a guy in the World Cup. And you just kind of inspires spies everyone through that one story time and time again. All right there it is Manchester United. Any any final thoughts. You know, I think that they are. Renew can right this ship and get these players playing together. They have the talent to make it far in this tournament there they have some a great collection of players, but they're just are not playing together as a team right now. That is really the worst thing that they just like there's no chemistry out there correctly. Yeah. And so we'll see if that could change. Does. I am very low on them. You know, maybe maybe it's the wrong pairing a certain way where I don't know if we'd see the forest from the trees. We came off very dour on this on this group because we live it and we are not happy with the current reality. But as you say, I mean pulp Oba Kaku Alexis Sanchez. These are world class like some of the best. Literally some of the best players in the world. So, and you've got a coach who for all his faults has a certain talent for winning knockout round tournaments, not necessarily the prettiest way, but he's got a formula for winning then that has proven successful in the past. So those things combined and you say, sure, why can't Manchester United going win this tournament or make a super deep run, but it's it's the chemistry aspect. That's that's keeping us all. Sad. Yeah, I'm very excited to watch these matches because it's going to be roller coaster. I can already tell, and I think for all their fault and for all our faults in the league and everything that's going to be, these players are going to be at their highest on Champions League day. Now the question is, is Marino going to just try and spite everyone and cut off his nose despite his face and start MC Tomei Andres Pereira Marcos Rojo and jogo Deloitte on on Champions League day just to show all the other players that he can. That would be a shame. All right. Let's talk predictions here. What's. How you see this group. So I've got young boys at the bottom. They unfortunately don't have really have a chance here. The hardest choice is between second and third. So should we should we do this in sandwich style. You've got young boys in the bottom. Who do you have at the top of this group? Read event this. I've got you vent, so the top. So we're on the same page here Juventus at the top young boys at the bottom, how we have second and third playing out. I cannot in my in my right mind, say Manchester United Argo are gonna be bumped out the group stages. I can't. I can't do it. They have to make it if they don't God, that is just a colossal failure on everyone's part. If they get knocked out in the in the Champions League in the group stages, I can't imagine like players like Paul bar Lukaku stain, they they'd have to leave or or radio will get fired. I mean, it's just insane. It's insane to think that so they're gonna finish second version. Third, it could easily go the other way though easily. Yeah, I, I agree. Manchester United, get knocked out. In the group stage, I think Marino gets fired. Then. Assuming we're not like somehow on undefeated run in the in the Premier League. But those both happened, I would be very shocked that we are somehow undefeated and getting knocked out in the group stage. I got a faith in Manchester United. I have to I. So I agree with you. I agree with you. My heart and every I dunno, I, it's all their Manchester United in second place except for the fact that our players just seem unhappy and if for no other reason than I hope it's just to not jinx it, I'm saying Valencia in second place..

"And then I think it's probably gonna be Jesse Lynn guard, which is fine maybe. And he's like this player who's just tip toeing around making that next big jump in his career, but likes to kind of retreat back into anonymity. I don't think Juan Mata is the guy as you say. I just I think he's a good player if anything drop him a little further back. But if you need like some goals and you wanna play him in a more offensive midfield role, but I don't think he's, I never. I just don't think he's the winger that we need. So I mean, obviously I would pick. I mean, I want to start rash verd- is other than Poca our most important asset, and I think he has all the everything. We need to be a fantastic player, but he needs needs nurturing, and he needs playing time. And yes, it's true that he was naive to get that red guard. But you know all not handled in the best way by Maurino either. We've got multiple childish people foot. I don't know if you know this read, but he has won three Premier League titles which is more than anyone else currently in the Premier League by two and everyone else has zero. So suck it. Yeah. Well, that's not doing anything. I want to get your thoughts on one thing real quick here there was the big there was the big to do over the summer. Everyone. Everyone hoping Manchester United lure in Zindedine Sadan to be the coach. Would you want the donnas your coach here for Manchester United? So the way I feel about Sadat's kind of the way I feel about Carlo enchilada. He's one of those guys who just like, gets everyone in a in a room and says, you know, let's just go have fun. You guys got there and play. He's not a tactician. He just wants to he's amendment ajar. I mean at this point I wouldn't be upset if za Don came in. I mean, okay. I think he's one of pub idols. I think it would be a lot of a lot of fun to, I think pull will be be out there having fun. And that's one of the things that's really important. I think it'd be good at a good inspiration for the youth. Inspiration for you. But I think that he, you know, he probably bring a good staff with him. I think it'd be nice change. I doubt it's going to happen, but I agree. I was going to happen. I'm going to contradict myself because I agree where I said, just bring someone in to make punga thrive, and I agree with probably do that very thing. But to me not to compare in tactically to to Marino. But to me, it's similar in the sense that I don't think is ever going to be a coach at anywhere for more than three seasons. And I think he's going to be a specialist in winning knockout tournaments, which is frankly, what Marino kind of specializes in to a certain extent. I don't think I don't think the Don showed a tremendous affinity at winning the for winning Lalita. He showed very talented at winning the Champions League, which, frankly is the most important thing and this what the show is about. But I just don't see that as being a building to the future. You know that you're ever going to get another ceramics Ferguson, but you need a player a coach. I think gonna take on that role for more than three years. And I don't think Saddam's ever going to do that either. I think you know, rightfully so he's going to get kind of worn out. He's gonna put everything he's got into it, and I just don't think he's going to have that long jetty. And I don't think he's necessarily have an eye to really building a future for the for the clubs. So to me, it's it's the more current successful version of the same thing we currently have. Well, David Moyes is is still billable. Bring him back. Eating rumor the rumor that he is potentially going to be the next US. Men's national team coach. I read that and immediately walked out at my brain. I would be a tremendous mistake, please that, but I, yeah. David Moyes, never got a fair shake..

"But if Cristiano Renaldo Impala deba- can just find a way to play off each other. Well, like we so good. Yeah. Yeah. But we'll see. I think Rinaldo is coming into this understanding that he's the old dog. Yeah, that he needs these other players in order to make this work. You can't just do it all himself like the early days, a Real Madrid, so expect to expect to see a lot more link-up play a lot more patience from Rinaldo. You know where he might have just been very frustrated early. I think that there's going to. He understands that there's going to be a learning curve to get this little workout. And I think it's everyone's best interests that it does work out because you could see the the crowd and Turin turning on this team. If they just can't score, you know the, are they gonna start. Booing Rinaldo see happening. I think you'd have to go number of more games and I just don't think Christiane let's go that long without scoring. If nothing else the winning penalty at some point, just let him take it. Just like cool things down, but will. I mean it's how they started the season. We'll see if if it comes back around if they stick with it, but just on paper, if Cristiano Renaldo playing Moore's number nine and deba- behind him and then Douglas cost an Quadra on the wings. Like, are you kidding me? God terrifying. Yeah, just a real quick. Looking at the the Italian papers from from last week they've already started late. I know you which I know you have delivered to your home on on on a daily basis. I'm a huge fab, longtime subscriber. Tuttosport of course, slammed as the nowhere man already. You know, it's only been a couple of games, but they're not afraid to turn on him, you know. All right, let's do something I, you know, he's, they were all very excited to see him and you know, yes, he's looked a little bit. We're getting to see a little bit of that. Temper tantrum Rinaldo and his frustration which is never a good sign, but I'm, I just think he's too good oklaho- bounceback once once the Champions League starts, he's going to score four goals on Manchester United. He'll be fine, and that's really all that matters for them anyway. All right. Let's talk Manchester, United, are our beloved are struggling, Manchester, United finish second place in the Premier League last season, having a tough time, tough time keeping up with pep Guardiola and his Manchester City team. But this team just. Really playing. Super great. The first thing I asked myself when I was looking at Manchester United was, are they any better than the team that was swept out of the Champions League last year by severe. And what conclusion did you come to? Absolutely not. If anything, there just seems to be more chaos, less cohesion. It's like the defenders got worse as. If you can tell very down on on how can you not be? I mean, you know, it's just as you're a hundred seven, right? Which is that? I mean, we came out of the World Cup, and our good friend does Marino is just been like wining and crying. Since literally the minute the woke up was over. He was been, oh, this isn't a terrible season where things are really rough and I don't even know. I'm gonna find MARCY. Like I understand things happen, whatever you have crunch issues, there's no worse look than finding a player for spending a few extra days with his newborn child. Yeah, when the preseason in Los Angeles and like it's irrelevant and you're finding this guy for being with his his new baby, like. He's already had a tough summer. He was left out of the French World Cup squad the year. They win the World Cup. I mean, it's just things were going well for him, and he's kind of become the scapegoat a little bit this year. Now that Luke Shah's is playing out of his mind. Marito's punching renewed the new punching bag and Marshall's become that guy and breaks my heart. I think Marcial is such a talented player. I think if you're not if you gave not saying he's most consistent player in the world, but I think he's one of those players that the more he plays, he's going to play better and he's just not playing. So he's playing worse and it becomes self filling prophecy. I think he could be a world world class talent..

"It's not necessarily the most pivotal position, but they did lose their right Bhagwat consul to Juventus. One of the many talking points of briberies here. I think that's a big loss. No question about that. And just because our other co host, the professor Willie cats Baril will would be upset if I didn't mention it. They have. They have lost Simone Zaza fans of the game. If you were around in two thousand sixteen for the euro's was a crucial penalty. Miss for Italy in what can only be described as a a dance. Maybe in the run-up to his penalty kick, it took an eternity. It involved many, many little steps and then just a fun during miss. So I think that's actually a benefit to this team to lose our good friends. Simone Zaza considered one of the worst penalties in history. That's pretty much always known for at this point. Hey, you know what? At some point, you gotta look at your career and say, what's the way I get into the history books? And if it means, take the worst penalty of all time. That's fine. Also, of course, losing on a free transfer, Manchester United legend. We know you got an idol to them in your back closet. Read Noni back to sporting. So there you go. Came the prodigal son return from Wednesay indeed. But there you go, I think. But I think this is a good team. They certainly have the potential to be good and I don't count this team out for sure. Agree. Let's let's skip on over to what would probably be the favourite of the group you would imagine Juventus new, the new home of the man. The myth legend the quads. Cristiano Renaldo after his hundred five euro one hundred, five million euro transfer at thirty three years of age has yet to score a goal for Juventus in his first three games. I'm gonna be. I'm going to be honest with you. Read I like Juventus chances not just getting out of this group. I think they might very well win the Champions League this season. It's very apparent that they're all in after this acquisition of an, although they've got. Under Allegra. They've had four doubles in the past four seasons and so domestic successes simply not enough. Yeah, they're measured now by their ability to win the Champions League. So of course they bring in the specialists Rinaldo who's become sort of a master of the Champions League with five cups to his name. They're in a real window mode. You know, he's thirty three, but obviously he's in peak physical condition. His role has changed over the years. He's not that speedy winger that we knew as on Manchester United. He's more of a. Stay stay, stable. Number nine, target man. Yeah, but he's very effective in that role berry..

"You might get just a full on breakdown of what's going on with Manchester United right now. So we'll say that till the end Juventus obviously big dogs as well of this group, so we'll get to them in a moment. Let's start with those young starts at BSE young boys. Now, if you're like me, you wanna learn about more about this team. I give you full warning right now. Joan just start go typing in young boys into Google. You're gonna get into trouble. I think the FBI is now monitoring by my search. But anyway, the Swiss champions read how long's it been since young boys been in the champions the it's been a long thirty two years since the young boys made it to the Champions League. That's my first fact I have about them. Tell me second fact is they play at the door stadium. You. You would have that as a fact. You know, young boys winked or if I mean the jokes just right themselves of this team. You know, if if you're going to call y'all get your reads IP address. I don't associate with. I've never really been friends with him. I don't know how you got on this show off the grid is just only the dark web. Yeah, Turk with. Goodness, also not a safe place to be. All right. This was team? Yeah. I mean, not not the Swiss, not the Swiss champions of lates. We're used to seeing basil appear in the Champions League, but. All credits to the young boys, and that's not going to get old and I don't necessarily have all that much to say other than you know they're in for a fight in this group. It's not going to be easy for them. No. All right. Well, if you're if you're a big fan of young boys tweet at me and tell me what I need to know about young boys, which young boys you should be looking out for. Oh yes. I'd like to know law Swiss young boys, but you know, there's a, there's a few others in their one one, couple Irish, young boys. You know, I want to move on. Cut it out. Just in show's been canceled anyway. Apologies if offended by all that it's it's late at night. We're getting a little loopy here. But anyway, this this team certainly in for a fight. I think we're going to be a little bit out class, but I'm sure they will be extremely excited to be here and to welcome the likes of Juventus Manchester United in Valencia to the Wankdorf. All right. Let's talk Valencia Valencia. As you say, it's. Severe, not in the Champions League this season like they were last year, but Valencia, you know, you always have that kind of next level to your Spanish team and they always complicate things Barcelona, Real Madrid, even let's go Madrid, usually a class above, but teams like Valencia severe. These are talented teams and Valencia are not to be taken lightly. Valencia has been kinda out in the wilderness. The past couple of years they've gone through some changes haven't been able to keep a manager been able to lead them to sort of arrow stability who can who can forget the Gary Neville era of Valencia. Whoever thought that was gonna work out that like Gary is going to lead you. It was going to lead them to glory. I mean, like, yeah, he could barely speak English. They, they're trying to get him to lead a team in Spain. I mean, come on. But they've got Marcelino in there and he's kind of brought them back given some stability to their squad. Their transfer business. The summer was good..
