29: Candid Coaches Conversations pt 4: Rule Changes
"Welcome to another episode of candid coaches conversations This week we have another group of highly. Touted assistant coaches guys that we brought together a couple of so called journalists including myself. I guess but we have robbed author as usual. He will actually moved in this podcast. Thank you will not look like a statue and we have. Cbs matt norlander and the topic. This week we'll be rules and Rule changes rule proposals. You'll hear a lot of these guys. Talk candidly what. they like. What they don't like whether it's on the court or hopefully some of the rules off the court as well as the last few weeks we've tried to change it up topic wise this week. We'll talk about rules with some of the recommendations that are out there you know. The the rule oversight panel's going to vote on this early. June norrland is probably got some more info on this but the big launch are obviously whether they go to six fouls. That's a big one probably not going to happen. Technicals for flopping no warnings anymore. I think i don't know live stats. I guess you're gonna be able to use some equipment Potentially on the bench. If the league's approve it it's kind of an experimental rule where you can what you can download previously downloaded and live stats during gains. Let let's start norlander. What am i forgetting. Am i forgetting anything else. It's of relevance team. Timeouts will replace media time outs which is definitely a baseball but i think is actually really good for the consumer it will make it has the potential to have be three to five to seven minutes shorter overall and then shot clocks will if the school wants to it can be like an mba shot clock show tenths of a second on the shot clock for the entirety of the game. That will be on a school by school basis but yes flopping can ballots cetera et cetera. The only thing that will be experimented in the nit next year will be the sixth foul rule. Which is obviously the most interesting one. Everything else If it gets passed by by prop will be implemented immediately for next season right. So i'm going to start with cody. Cody came from the nba. And i think obviously it's we know it's a different game but but you dealt with six files and now you've been in college for a couple years. How do you feel about college basketball from from five to six. I mean to me. The big key is that there's an additional eight minutes right at the professional level. So the need for those additional fouls is there otherwise you would see star players fouling out early in games. And you can't have that. I think that the big thing that from my experience and again it's only two years and you guys have been killing it doing it for years and years and years you can tell i'm insane but just as an outsider coming in is there's there's such a bigger pool of teams right at the college level. It's much harder to have consistency from game to game on the officiating side with only thirty teams and only whatever it is however many officials we had in the league. It's a smaller group so a small group to teach the nuances of how to make the calls and what you get is consistency across the board from game the game. That doesn't mean they're going to get everyone right. But my point being charge calls right like rerouting drivers right hand checking it's so inconsistent that one game your best player might have two thousand the first five minutes but the next game. You might do the exact same thing and both of those files go not call right so lack of consistency would be the only thing that leads me to believe in additional foul could be needed but again. We don't have that extra minute. So i really don't see a need for that change. Anybody wanna go to six. Oh hell no so. So for me. Outside of inconsistency why in the world would they put all these stipulations on file. Calls light so safe. You can get you can get a kid has zero files in the first half and you have four thousand secondhand. Well we all know. That's the moment of truth. That's the most intense part of a game and you can get disqualified. That makes no sense. If you go though six go six hundred and relations you know the same thing if you why have you get three and i had get through in the second half. That's fine but if you can't get one file in the first half you get four in the second half. What was the point going to six. And so people forget. I think in the early nineties the biggies and attack i think it was the atlantic sun. They experimented with this all right. So that's became. I guess the rugged big east in foul called nick gangs got extended. Do want that again. I don't mind on the six. I don't mind going to six all right but if you're gonna go to six why have stipulations on. That's all i'm saying. I agree with jonas I mean i grew up in the washington. Dc area at the high school. I live those big east as jonas. Would they had six fouls you watch georgetown and villanova and saint john's playing those. Those teams were bloodbath. Man know. i mean. obviously there was some count on the floor and that but like it was. Survival of the fittest. And that's thought like how. I interpret the game should be played and I just think you know. I think cutting makes a good point too about you know. We're playing eight lots minutes. I just don't see there's any need for for six fouls. I think it should be six vows because your best player when you get to put on the bench for the whole first. Half in so As a disadvantage if the refs not going to be consistent your best sitting on a bench it has six five. You'll be more inclined to leave him in a game until he get three. No three defers after the second app so i think vows protect the best players in the best fares drive the prada so we need the product to be good. The nba got more stars in our game so we need our best players on the court and if you not like behind we only plan. I don't know if. I wanna see the best pair sitting on the bench. I know i don't think it's wack rule. I wish they were blue to six hours and twenty four second shock. The new transfer rule is eight or nine guys in a lot of people will have big rotation unless you got unless you're gonna go platoon anyway. I give you saying by getting you know after your second foul you put on the bench but the same thing that you get your third file in this scenario with no stipulation. I don't know a coach in his right mind. Allow player to get four or five and a half but it does happening right now. You get to some coaches. Let them play naked third bow but they don't get paid allies thirty five. You're not done for the rest of the game. You just let it out got two fouls to get into that. Some coaches over coach. I know when i was in college. Macos that you play in the first avenue three thousand. Because again he don't serve you. Don't believe in playing nineteen you only going to play six and a half maybe said so to six file would keep the better players on the court driving the product because we wanna see the best players. The agree with jason. Because the game is supposed to be about a player's was best for our players was best for a game. And i think when you could protect allow the players have six files ago competing especially you see the you know the numbers in the nba I think you just like jason say you know the product is our our kids and our players necessarily need to protect an an and i think you have a better game well. I like devil's advocate on this one. Because why. I like the idea of going to six vowels for all the reasons that you guys are mentioning but why. Why is there this auto bench with two fouls in the first does exactly right. You don't have a really good point because it was like a study at the nba level talking about foul trouble whether we put guys to the too similar thousand and play the house and mike. The data shows that letting the guy's point the thousand more often than not actually. Don't get that next foul. A player to says you can't we can put first basin out there with two percent frank. Hey don't get your third get stirred next one just as competitive chocolate. But i think it has a lot to do with personnel. You play but that that's a good point. We think we always think the guy's gonna get it. That's the interesting thing very interesting. An mba guys are. Let me guys rock with files. So so it's like yeah like. Hey because you can't have frank at three thousand first half y'all s right so but in the same sense i mean. What if we think that he's gonna get it but maybe maybe we can actually trust them more than we think knows. I have a question for the veteran coaches here. That have been around. You know andre ron among them The biggie stuff gets referenced in how it was a failed experiment thirty years ago but do we think that the modern college game the way it's played the way that it has been changed in a fishy in the weights beneficiary. The past five years remember. We're talking six seven years ago about how you know we needed to clean up the game and make it more. Fluid more cosmetically appealing right. It feels like there has been good gains on that. So is there the potential that with this rule which again will just be done at the nit level just to see how it goes. I think that's actually the right process here but do you believe that. The division one men's basketball is a cleaner game in two thousand and twenty one By small margins major margins margins at all versus what. The biggest was in the late eighties. Early nineties matt here like for me personally out could give help offensively with screen and stuff like an nba. They call they get away with dolphins so screen and a lot more in the college game. I'll post gaza sometimes scared that screens. Because they're scared to out that way. So most faust one of the deepest saw the ball seems so by allowance six. Maybe we could get. Our post is or something better screening. Get those guys scream. More not being having a concern of getting files that way. So that'd be one reason why i think the six made may help you know. Matt i agree with you saying that like i mean i think the officiating has gotten better. We've tried to call the first thousand pant checking out. I think we've improved that. But i you know. I just feel sometimes though especially in the acc. Move on and see. Why tested this. I i just feel like it gets more physical as we get into conference play. You know it really does. And and then it gets it gets corralled back in the nc double a. term 'cause those guys wanted to advance so Because we're seeing the guys night in a night out in the acc. So you know. I do agree. You know because those were bloodbath man. Some of those files were. That's not but it's in early nineties an- and with those teams. I mean it was it. Was it came down to coaching. Came down the Who was filed late. And i mean it was just a blood after those. Those guys was physical and growing up on big ten basketball as a point guard. You kind of what she was getting into. They recruited and other conferences. You use that to their advantage. Negative recruit the big sale. Oh he's going to play slow basketball half or basketball. You know the is going to be fifty four to sixty games like that but it was also through basketball where you got punished with. You went in there and the paint and they made you pay for so Growing up on that style of play. That's all you knew in in now. I think the game is definitely a little software. They they have done a good job of cleaning up but just growing up growing up on those those big ten basketball teams and coaches. Those really good teams. I think I'm with jason is another guy turned to six six files in. My reason is probably a little different. I think human human nature of the beast and you gotta help with human air. I mean everybody on this call as that during the game and said come home and that's a bad call like how many times during the game the you look around you you said that's a bad call so all of us get bad. 'cause lesson when you're on the road in the acc big ten sec human nature of these so when the crowds come back is kinda human nature or the official count getting motion with the crowd and makes calls. I think it takes the pressure. All these bad calls that made jalen held you. Don't care withdrawal. Say or anybody says guy gets to five that bit. Because he don't think he's he he don't think he's going to defend and play hall. He thinks he's going not not go hog. Give up some buckets. Because he's trying to stay in the game so if if it was up to me Jason hard saying the best players only Drives the product s the truest thing. Not her that balance right. I mean it is that balance you want the best in the floor. But you're afraid of the way the game might look if you're giving everybody six files right like especially next year. I think the game's gonna be so ugly at the beginning of next year anyway with all the turnover among rosters and if you added like six files his thank you can be a a train wreck in terms of the quality of play as much as anything All right let's we've gone through that let. Let's go around the room a little bit of like. What's the one rule that you guys would change and it could be. You could have one on the court. You could have one off the court. I wanna hear the one off the court as much as one is going to be more interesting. Chris kreider. Let's start with you. You haven't said anything yet. Been counted just listening. What do you got what rules would you change rule or rules. We're talking about just overall. Ncwa so i. If i had to say one thing. I think all of us you know in our in our positions we being compliant and compliance is always so important and we we try to follow the rules to a t. I know for myself. You know how many texts calls do we make to our compliance department with something comes up. Hey can i do this something that i think you know. We recruit these guys. And we're basketball coaches and you go through the recruiting process. They arrive on your campus. And you want to coach him. And i understand why the rules are what they are. But just the whole time in the countable hours i think sometimes the time that allowed to spend on the court once you reach that number so let's say four hours a week. A guy wants to get extra shots. You wants to work out lots of a film. I just think. I find it as being an internal struggle. Hey go grab go grab a manager. Hey i'll get you on the next go around you know so you wanna follow the rules but at the same time you want to. What's right for the kid. You recruited them trying to help south for me. That's a that's bounce case. What do you got. you haven't spoken you. There is a. I definitely agree. days. There's been saying. I if i were changed related. That'd be six files just off the top of my head but simple standpoint of of the product You don't have coaches old school coaches alike wise in terms of linda. Have these guys. And that's don't be case firefighters because if you looking at it you'll your margin. The various have tallied. More than a opposed. You'll save three thousand second Close game so that's the rule. I'm hoping to change Moving forward in just give these guys a better feel of what a federal level with the six files and playing like that. Because like like see watson is gonna be tired whereas rome of air when a when a referee makes a bad call and it can cost four or five. Now you've got the last four minutes of the game so that's the rollout out with change. Hey i got one for you. Before i let you go on this one How bad is it when you play by games. How the officiating when you play by games against some of these guys at any calls now. She's not they ought to get out of the about low carbs and meet me being. I got as both of a low major school You hope some hope to five thousand helps you in a game. Because you'll play those. Go to the vince. If he happens. Pick valley get a charge call. But i didn't want the game of basketball is wise to grow our. Who else has got to go. One has got something. Maybe a little bit outside the box jason up in here. There's a lot of smart basketball minds on this call goodman not included. I hate the fact that the charge exists. The way that exists in college basketball. I wanna know from you guys. Do you hate it as much as i do. Because there's nothing that. I can't spend more than watson defender slide in underneath somebody going to the rain. Fall down and give roy with a with a charge. Called on it silence. No i lobby great to charge call. I think too much this level that coach taking charges right as a strategy and to me. I think number one is dangerous number two. I think if a guy gets in the air before you get to the spot you should have no shot at getting that call and Honestly it's been it drives me nuts. I mean especially. Go play kelvin. Sampson team those guys are disciplined. So they're low man's there he's given outside the charge circle and he's going down on any contact so to me even whether and that's the problem again that goes back to the inconsistencies from game to game the are triggered to me to the fact that again we've got so many games so many teams. It's just not call equally and so it's really disrupts the game and that's where you're going to the issues like jason was touching on our to your top players attack in the ran and they're not getting that call. It's brutal so i. It's it's a killer i can't stand it. And i also talk about screening andrea mentioned screening. It's another one. I can't stand the illegal screen. Calls are like totally wildly inconsistent. And and i just. I'm not a big fan. But i do think if you if you teach you guys the right way. I think the using charges. I think this is your badge. Heck yeah i agree with that. I know i've ever worked with coach beer That much but prepare for him after they have rule We have to get several charges a again and it you know the times. They beat us in the past At when he was at texas they have five or six charging. What was the difference in the game. So i definitely understand where you guys come from but if you teach it the right way and you consistent in you have a culture where you're doing a practice in that's what you know. Things is definitely a bad. It's a little bit old school to not played for morgan. Moving at the matha high school will end step in and take a charge. You know at the buzzers going off man. I was coming out. You know so i. It's it's kind of ingrained with me. But i i understand what kobe to i. I do think you know one of the rules. That i thought was really gonna pass. I met went through some of them there. But i thought we're going to widen the lane. I thought that would help out a little bit. I didn't think the charge circle. Mike was on the committee rules committee when they put the charge circle in tonight moved back but i really would was hoping that they would have a wider lactic. That would even open it up even a little bit more but absolutely a table that for this year. But yeah it's It's interesting call for for us. Old school guys. Do you guys feel about on ball charges. That's another one that's wildly inconsistent like we're guys sliding and he's actually slight because the nba level. A guy with the ball owns the space. Right if i'm driving and you reroute me. That's a foul on you like even if even if you read in jumped in the way in full doubts you got in my way. I own that space right so like that. I don't know how you guys feel about dollar. That's another one that i mean. There are certain teams. Like jerry said man i mean. It's that are very unbelievably disciplined and very well coached at using those things to their advantage. I mean daviel. Mitchell was the best that right he was able to just get in front of somebody in take charge. I honestly don't mind that one as much because if beating someone to the spot like you kind of ernie is the ones where someone slides over. And it's not even trying to make a play on the ball we talk about. What's what's best for the game and want to see your best player. Make a play. Do you wanna see someone. Try to block shot at the rim bloc dunk at the rim may get dumped on maybe get a poster maybe highlight. Maybe someone sportscenter or do you want to see your best player going up getting undercutting fallen down. Maybe he's got two free throws out of it. Maybe he's picking his third foul in the first half because it was bad charge. Call i just. I hate the off ball. Secondary fender fall down into a spot. I just. it's not basketball. Speaking donald mental. He he he he. He was one of the best defenders off scene because he wouldn't let you set a ball screen. And how many times can you say. I think marcus geared did a few times but you to continue his boss raise. We'll one four or five boss freeze and he had never let you let me just got over and beat you to the spot. So i think you got guys like that. That's that's a whole other level. Mike right there but i'm which do like my high school coach like you gotta rewarded by taking charge. So i'm a big fan of charges. I'm sorry fellas mark my thing is man. I i think it should be one basketball. I think that it helped the game. If the ncaa rule s have one basketball so everybody could stay hot all the time we only league in the world of the change balls goes on. Why does that. Why is that because it's for money. I'm totally get it but like an ncaa. They own the the tournament so we pay a one ball and everybody getting rid s do one ball one universal basketball because we will preparation. You go play texas tech. You gotta go get out your unarmored balls if you go play. You gotta get out the nike balls. Yeah so when we amount trip. Utah's unarmored from utah. To go to colorado nike so we switched bosnia. We come on la. That's adidas bar and then we'll pay our gang. Nike ball comprise only the into aa only. The can't figure this shit out syria and say we should how to one hundred percent four goodman profanity on our families doing every time every week at and see why he met that to something. Special heart is right. We can't beat notre dame undamaged by the most ball by the way she shoes willow. Wealth the ball without thinking about four quarters. I'm not a big fan. I just take changes are game. But i know there's there's some movement towards that. I'm looking for a quarters break game now much easier. That twenty minutes on the clock. That's like a few minutes. You give them a better rhythm you get your tv timeout. Uva you get your group in. And out i i. I wish we did four quarters. While i did some reporting on this last week on it so i don't know when we're getting four quarters because the problem is Men's college basketball is different from every other sport in that the nfl has a tv deal with all of its you know with all with all channels at arunachal games the same thing with the nba. The contracts always end at the same time and in the women's game. You only had a handful of games on television across a couple of networks so that it was not hard to restructure the td contract in men's college basketball. The cbs deal doesn't end at the same time as the fox deal doesn't end at the same time. The espn deal so you cannot have a situation where espn goes. Okay we're cool. If we want to completely restructure how we send our commercials in add money to a template that aligns with four quarters but then you've got the big ten network that's got two more years after that fox has three more years. Cbs has five more years. After that. you have to have all the television contracts end at the same point. So that you can restructure. At least that's how it was explained to me by tv. Executive and someone at the level. So i think everyone wants to get to or not everyone but a lot of people wanna get to the four quarters because it makes sense. It's logical progression but television money is the thing that is preventing this from happening and the feedback. I got was if this ever happens. It's at least ten fifteen years out. Once we get beyond the the current media landscape of how college basketball broadcasts on traditional brazilian play. they're like how would that be impacted right. If there's ten stoppages are playing a game right in the the the companies are paying for their ten spots or whatever it is like are we taking away stoppages of play. Yes sir there would would be. That's what i was told. There would be a reduction when quarters 'cause you would only have them at the quarter breaks and then it's come should ask should have rights each get a time out right. You're under seven. You're under three your quarter break. And if i mean just throwing it out there right you can give him the idea. Just add avary timeouts. You get like a throwaway twenty seconds. I'm out and now you come to the same amount of stoppage. The played with the other one. I think it solvable. But it's something that i think takes a true concerted effort and all the invested parties are not interested in doing at this point. Because you're involved again. You're involving the rules. Committee the conferences that have their own tv deals right. Cody and then the television executives who lord over so much of this is something that's audible and i'm kind of ambivalent on it. I would like to see it but if it doesn't happen i'm okay with but the pr- the situation presenting their yeah absolutely I think it is something that we can conquer. But i just don't think it's i think we'll look up in ten years in men's college basketball still going to be a two half game. I mean. I think there's two things that really really matter for this at least for me. It's the watch ability of the product on tv right. There's nothing more frustrating than when you get that. Tv timeout at the under sixteen and then with fifteen minutes forty five seconds left. Somebody calls a timeout in the second half so you get that three minute tv timeout. Then you come back and play for ten seconds That's going away. That's that's good of you to that. The other part of it is that when you with all of these thousand or called when both teams are in the bonus with seven minutes left in a half and you just have nothing but free throws down the stretch of the game like that can really kill stuff too especially when you're tournament and There are so many tightly cold games. There's lawn foul so the rule reset fouls apiece I don't know if that's something that is actually ended up happening but to me. That makes a lotta sense. Excuse me he has the product on tv better. They they didn't. I don't know why didn't they discuss basically going to fake for quarters format but they just. They didn't do it. Because i know there's enough still that still like the one in one on two four quarters into the fouls like you don't have one anymore which i cannot i. Cannot i kind of understand why they why they would resist that. But i think that's why this was on the table. This was discussed last week but they just decided that they were not ready to abandon the one in one concept which has its pros and cons overall. But i think that was a major factor in why it wasn't passed along for even experimentation at the it level the way that the sixth rules. Let me tell you guys. A little.

Who else has some ideas for rule changes overall. Yeah one thing. I had especially off the court. And chris kind of loosely early when he was talking about you know having managers go work out with guys and so forth i can. Atc you know see. Why probably solve email today. But i think we're gonna kinda go to this started with the pandemic of the last summer. But i i really feel like like your graduate assistant or your operations guy or something like that like no one things. I've been a product here. Beer notre dame the twenty one years especially the last half my your for twenty one years because you had success on the court and off the court you know you're doing things the right way One i've taken a lot of pride in is like mentoring. Some are young coaches on our staff including the last five or six years guys lifeforce probably even more important young black coaches that are starting their careers out that. I think that this is just such an important step for those guys and you know for those guys not to be able to get on the court and actually work with guys. I just think that's that's just not right. For example like a couple years ago we had Eric atkins who's assistant at gw. Right now will be a head. Coach here shortly. was in our kind of our video ronin like that and you know. Our young apprentice help but he was a freshman. Eric was on our staff and You know he wasn't able to go. You know the both from the dmv area you know they had developed a great relationship off the court like eric aca trivial to go help how. 'bout on the court to help you know. He's a very good point for us to help you know teach himself the nuances of the game and so forth. I just think we're we're getting you know. We got something a day. Where i think we're gonna get to that point. At least we're going to experiment with this summer To be able to do that. I just think that's so important. You know the core to interact with guys. I know the recruiting pizzas. One thing be. I'll go out and recruit but you know there's a lot of recruiting that's done off the court to that. Those guys were involved with which i think helps prepare those guys but like we got you know. Loosen it up a little bit and let those guys actually get out there and sweat with those guys specially like during the summertime. When we're on the road like able to work with guys like crista the you know you have to get a manager. Maybe workout for the next couple of hours like we should be able to do that. We should have our young guys in our staff. Sgt be able to step in those roles. I think i think there will for me. I think that's the change very fast. Because and la every agency is out here so they can work out with our grass. It just don't work out with a runner on average six. Come onto the coach trip so for me. I think that just because win away. We got a million runners. I right so they come in your head coach heiko if they did that for us that eliminates some our players. We had like three in the past. The name draft diggins they work but our guys with unlimited our right. I think that that really helped for us out here because every agent is trying to get all players right now. It's just been my experience. The last six years that the gym keeps kids out of trouble. If you you ncwa. I don't understand how practical intelligence that until you that if the kid is in the gym he's not in the club he ain't running straight. He's not doing things that get you in trouble collins. So that's something that really really bothers me. I that's something that we gotta get change and the guys is still a bunch of lazy guys out here some some guys. Don't wanna gimme jim we get. We have blessed here at florida state. The new bloods plugin a that. We get kids with tremendous amount of humility. That wanna be. Jim wraps but it's hard dancing around that time. They that definitely has a change in the agent. Deal jayson stark mountain real israel to get that Are power players. i'll throw out real quick From a from media and consumer standpoint and actually be interested to see what Will you guys is coaches Feel how it changed. It doesn't change at the games. I want i understand that. We're never going back to the way it was without monitor reviews but there there are too many and there have been instances a lot of them in the past couple of seasons guys. You will be point game with a minute to go. Take fifteen minutes a real time. It is a terrible experience there so my role proposal is that once wants. The monitor review begins. That process begins when the official is looking. You get sixty seconds. You get sixty seconds or you stick with the call. And that's it so that even if you have three of these in the final minute of the game like not that. There is a wisconsin iowa game. I think it was the final regular season game this season. It took twenty minutes in real time to play the final two minutes of the game. This just never happened there. I'm actually curious when that stuff is happening in you injured dealing with all this like almost comically like what the hell are you talking on the huddle for all that time. There's only so much you can say about a given situation there and it's just it's it's dead air and it's something that college basketball's verily needs to clean up because we know we're going back to not having it so we're gonna have it. We have to protect the official themselves so they can't be staring at the same thing for five six eight minutes. I'll say this that starts with them. Being reliable officials right inconsistent officials. But what the nba did it i like. Obviously we've got the replace center secaucus right so somebody else's looking at it so when it happens they go over. The dancers are being given to them. They're not. it's not there for them to decide. I would love to see each conference. Go to that right because when you go to the monitor now you if you put a timer on it ta- about how long it be a review takes right but at the end of the games to getting back to it is i mean. There's a lot on the line here as well. Right these are. We're not playing for fun right. We put roofs overheads right feeding feeding kids through this game paying for college education. Things like that so to to me. It's important that we get it right. It has to be gotten right because if you are in the short end of that's thick on the losing side right in. That could be the difference between somebody having a job or not having a job or this or that it is a. It's it's just unacceptable to me. So i liked the thought of a reviews a review center and and to me also like the thought of the coach's challenge being at the end. 'cause we had that in the During my time all three years thousand the g. league we use that challenge and to me. I thought that was valuable right. If you really think you're right throughout your time out there put something on you know. Put a little skin in the game. what else. What else we got andrea. What what would you change say marvin and it goes back to play and stuff. I love the nba. Eru of the last two minutes with If time outs solid bounce out of taking berg gray basketball mas about college basketball you get that pin. Drop something pretty in those situations. That'd be one rule. Alexey coming out of the college is our love watching the nba games. A couple minutes. Maybe game exciting to watch this some off the court and not. I'm unicorn on this dance. The recruiting count drive me crazy. I should have one. I'll take it may fit safe. And i'm free and as a term going on down the road i should be at goto. It you can. I think every school's different academic calendar. So you can't mandate when guys have breaks when the kids ain't there so allow us to go. I'll take it hurts. People don't cheat by pitting those counties on us and it takes away from us being able to have contact without families a lotta times because the restrictions and so they still always talk about the third parties. These handle stuff. I'll take this get out more. We could kind of eliminate some of the middleman more because we could develop relations. So that's the only thing i drive me. Nuts actually calendar. I hate the calendar. Follow the rules. And i'm going to do it but i wish there was less wants a gel. That's why andrei grades the best mid major assistant in the country. He needs to go up to big jobs. that's greatness. i agree with that. I agree but guys. I'll work other. What's you wanna work. You get the player now again. Sometimes you you can. Still work is hard as you can but if that other guys doing some other shit stuff sorry why then they get the player but but if everything's equal give it to the guy who's gonna work so let guys go out whenever they want to go out. What's the big deal. Well the big deal is sometimes you gotta ask some time for your wife. Your family to we had to go out all the time. It'd be like you know during the season and you have a dead period. Have a couple of dead periods were dead. We're still any anything. But it's too i want to see change one is. I think it's corny to have tied up possession basketball and there are some of the ribs are not consistent. they give it a jump ball somebody else. I think everything should be a jumble ice now reward in that s corning near the two things. I'm a father of a upcoming College to navigate ice station. Tell me. I have to leave the gym when my son is not playing a game. That's that's corn. But i want a washed again and say. Hey little jason do dribble left watching we. I'm supposed to leave the gym when his games over like i'm really entertaining recruiting somebody else so i think those rules are too much that they think we always owner. I think had to put a little bit more human realistic with that office. An rule or anything. But i was curious if you guys started talking about with your staff's game attire just coming out of last year when everybody was wearing we going back to the suits not hope. Not xavier won't davis slacks pullover. And that's what we ga saves money. I know more tailored suits. Animal cleaners bills financing options. Still going shorts right to marry this year so it might be shirtless with students. Well arrive you better. You better start working out more than that. i would like to see change and then And so we were over to the world games and play and with a ball is hit the rail line. i thought the game was so much More exciting more intense and just better just a better flow and pace of a game when you guys is going to get it right. You know why went up. Boy you could go snatch often You could save the little corny. Jason i like that word a little forty you know goaltending calls and that man. Let's play house. Well let's get go. I thought that was really really fun. And all our guys like a was over there in the world game. So i think that would be be some cool to bring to. The game was on the table last week in. I don't know why. I was actually giving the impression that they would have a good chance to go to the nit. Experimental phase for next season. Didn't even get there the only feedback. I got an advance of that was at the american level. Haven't been talked to play that way so there might have been some reticence over physicality around the rim. But i think the game is going to jared. I think it's headed that. Like i think that will be a rule like we'll look into decade. That will be a role. I don't know why there was a players one or two games to kind of figure it out effort right. also it's one less thing for the official to have to worry about. It just seems like the ultimate win win so like there are a couple of things that didn't get pushed through that. We're a little like okay. I guess i kinda that one kind of blew me away. There's no downside to this. That can talk foresee. It's the feeble rule we should just implemented immediately and they just they just opted not to but i think if there was enough. Push from coaches. You know in the next year and the year after that like you you send feedback to the people that needs to be sent to barnes and huggins are now going to be on the on the rules committee for the next year or two. I think there's a chance that could actually get pushed through the next time. They vote rule stuff. 'cause i don't know it brings a certain excitement to the game and again it's one less thing for the officials anytime you can take something practically out of the officials hands for the betterment of the game. It's just over here. What else we got any other ideas any other things that you absolutely hate in the game right now. That should be changed. jeff. I don't know about that. I wanna remind everybody follows. This is a family of that is preventing to. I've got a question garad rod. What was the reason that you would favor of the wider land wanted. You can elaborate on the From the c. y. The be able you know we're talking about the charge call earlier. I think that when you have a elena that's narrow there's more to rob's point there's more contact near the room you know and i. I grew up with the charge. But i do think there's too many charges in the game to especially near the rim so i thought that that maybe could aleve that problem a little bit by having you know guys further out from the basket so and You know so. I i'll be back i was. I would love to see us. Go basically the fever rules. I twenty four second shot clock. I like the wide lane. But here's the thing about the wide lane to just piggyback on that. He talk about space right. The wide lane impacts the offense player sitting in there for three seconds right because we don't have a d. three so inherently what happens is the big guys have to cleanse further out away from the rim. So when they do that. We're still going to try to teach our guys to state that loman spot. But what are they going to do right. They're going to have more of a tendency to follow that guy one or two steps even away from the rim which touted the caveat to that is on a drive on the right side if my guy cleansed right himself over on the left side it's further for that guy to go to get a position to take that charge so there's less likelihood he can even make it there. So that's the thing that i love about the wide lane. I think that changes the game. I do like twenty four second shot clock because it speeds things up you guys like twenty four second shot clock or no overall. I liked congruence. I think the better the same reason high school basketball out of shot clock. I mean have congruence between high school to college to profession. only do about that. Because i've been mellon oy and recruiting chicago. Let me some of those. Those guys can't even have a have enough money for bleachers or less known to put a shot clock so i think a lot of people in the state illinois chicago wanted but it was just financially funds. Come from so. I think That's big a lot of people. Think about let's for the shock likely about somebody's communities somebody cities. There's but is it. Is it college game to go. Twenty four are able to do that. I liked the twenty four but a deficit will help if you had no starting at the high school level ma. Biggest pet peeve is when the referees telling kids to sit out for celebration like are you serious. Super cornea vase was say i was like it was like you could dunk the ball in warm ups. Robert you get a technical foul name is players like some of these kids never get into game in their time to the guy that played behind four pick so for me to bring some to the table from a handprint on that team was to celebrate in bring energy and now soon as i get up i got a referee. Who's missing a call down this way telling me me and my players sit out like little stuff like that is just like komo analysis play bass woah. Nothing worse than hanging on the room calls nothing worse than the technicals. It's like come on man like let him celebrate as long as they're not doing too chin ups they wanna do case in what he got. Is everybody catch on everything to twenty seconds economy That is where. I think what we're doing is as a as an organization instead of low. We we won't play fast and so what what would be better than spending game. Twenty four second shot clock to get a quick To get more transition best to make the playoffs they're not better So i think everybody gets a lot of different points. I would like to see to be honest with you away with the whole ten seconds. A call in the backcourt. As i'm not i don't understand the point of it Why like a situation rests on this now. You do it a lot. Because he's just forget grew so wayne just kind of interested because not not picking ninety four feet. I need a baby. Eight-man booted leave true. I never gonna be working. It will be irrelevant. User frazier gonna come off the bench and take charge. I love the. I love the young fellow state but i need a ten second line to what about. What about other recruiting rules gas. You guys are obviously involved in recruiting more than anybody else. Is there anything else that you would change there again. you know. My whole deal is less than the the a matter restrictions. What specifically is there. Anything else that. I love years ago when i first broke in recruiting there. Were things that you could do to be creative when you went to events to to stand out from everybody else. I miss that i miss. Listen to summer to me sucks now. Compared to how it used to be it used to be fun it used to have characters used to be able to be creative. Now it's like none of that are coming to the games with tj four t shirts. Yeah i mean listen the bail even the baylor shirts right. How big they were and then didn't like ban the size that could have the lettering. I mean listen you had john. Beeline yelling at nudes. Because they're standing in front of doorway like come on like like stuff's gotta loosen up in recruiting and have fun and like you said. It's all about the kids. Like let them have fun. And i think part of it is promotional part of it. I think we lost it. I'm not the biggest sunny for karaoke. Ganic in the world but that dude knew how to promote. Didn't he like sebastian. Tell fair darius washington matchup abcd that was bigger than like lebron against by the way we all thought it was. And now there's no there's no juice in any of the buildings we got clerk there. We where smu we just signed key phrases. And we're trying to get jordan mickey and we prayed. Some shirts nike shorts. I said a nun wrong with staying at home. The didn't have nothing personal but his family. Everybody knew what we saw with school. Sorta sad because we had a shirt and say none role was staying at home is like komo like you do your job. If you're worried about my words shirt but it'd become is is that in a in corny and at from a recruiting standpoint. You gotta allow the out workpeople rules. That don't allow people out eight. If you want to be a boring not working extra do as on you. You wanna stay home. That's on you. How silverback outlook is bored. I'm following the bus if i have to. I won't daddy as young. I'm following the bus. Now you don't blow you you gotta let guys out. Work used that bus. Even with this man i told you. Hey listen buses leaving four thirty need directions. The bus always going through the game. I'm about a the third. It'll be 'cause it's been out of sight out of mind been dead here for so long and we didn't have a summer last summer but it'll be interesting to see if we go back to the three a weekend so to speak in july because i always liked that during the summertime man. You're able to a lot of ground and see a lot of guys. See the best players play against the best players. They always always big with us as far as evaluations I think we're going to go to that but it's a good change after the summer. We're going to go back to the cancer. I guess we are have to be. You know because michael is president than abc's you had to be on board with the nc double. I mean i don't know how you guys felt when two years ago when we did it but you know just the best in that you know so It's gonna be interesting. Hopefully we'll get back to that this summer. But then what's going to happen. You know moving forward. You know it's going to be interesting. i'll say they. They voted on. That issue is gonna should vote next wednesday but his two eight eleven sixteenth through the eighteenth and twenty second foods twenty fifth. The thing for me is like like i said in recruited everybody's gonna run to the dita's under armour and nike. But it's going to be a lot of pros who can prove itself in high school to get on the a side. Jim so my thing is allow more side. Jim a certified. So i can go sneak and find me across nearby jimmy. Why go jason that be like to this summer. Right jason like next. It's going to go back to the camps. I think we're going to have the peach jim. you know and then i went to one phoenix and i never knew a kid named alex of was he. So it's some if you look at the right stuff you go by and opportunity to be seeing right like another set. So i didn't mind that that was cool but una piece fan. I love the pizza. I like the peaches. I liked the. I like to watch the fifteen sixteen. I liked to allied to see dance that kansas. You recruited me do we have four quote unquote no majors and say tissue. This yard team. We started by thirty minutes whereas you can tell you though we had. We had a kid transfer from rice and the jazz traffic bryce who was located out of high school. Whoa jas i knew how to handle claire. Everybody'll team i gotta go find them before they snap. I wanted to go to rise. No more just come on us because we know for us jason. It's wofford wolford a while. He was bald and he was bought. As i say. Whoa ho this modo. If you spend all this time recruiting develop relationship with these kids and parents and then you feel out you bet you gotta turn turn some obscure to even do anything like i miss the i miss. Here's to go with the lines. Be literally man. That was special in vegas jeff especially in vegas all like one of my favorite things ever was i one i breaking in recruiting and cooler and he went up to me. It was bradley. Abcd and he said to me he goes. Hey can you do me favor. Can you tell that kid that bbc that we're gonna offer him a scholarship and i looked at him. I like your head. Coach isn't even like l. Skinner hasn't even seen him. He's like just just tell them we're offering. I'm like i'm not telling them you're offering a mosquito like the shit that went on again. I'm sorry i'm sorry i'm sorry. Listen you can believe me out dos. The out later k gives him something to do. he doesn't talk you might as well add it But i think there was so much entertainment with the summer that is lost now and just tries to take away all the fun away from everything and again like to me. We gotta bring the fun back into the game. Somehow whether it's a you whether it's college whether it's recruiting whatever. It is like the in home visit is gone. Those one of the best things the in home visits stories were the best stories ever. They're gone now home. Visits you guys do now. Zoom zoom spanish. It out they know by really run run into their home but see why said with with with the that is young. He may go and do some home. Hey guys i wasn't outlet vaccinated homes as many as i can. I'm vaccinate i'm i'm not young. Later we solicit is also like your member them. Home businesses sitting out with grandma. Mama i visit. I'll miss not helps you. Secure you get them. To hold is still legal now. It's cold it by scary. No i'm saying there weren't that many of them. Even even before covid they still kinda come to a standstill for the most part they. They weren't like they used to be. Yeah i don't do a home visit. Say they'd be embarrassed. Or you know family dynamic but yeah well they tell me. Why are we going to do it on. The school is something about going into that home. Were they lay their head or break. Breasts like always denied like knock will want to be the school. I've been at the school. I need to be a mom house or anyhow somebody housing it's different. It's different one more. Thank chris Case in what the difference now is there. Anything you guys would do is mid as as major guys to try to make it more of an equal playing field. Is there any. i guess. Is there anything. In recruiting with restrictions. That hurts you. Maybe more than hurts these guys. When it comes to recruiting everything. I know i've learned from c. wa so I think for us. no. I don't think there's a pecking order. There's a natural pecking order takes place. You know. i've been at some different places in different levels. And i think it always works out if you are. Are you do a good job. You treat people the right way and try to work like see wise saying. I think you're going to get the guys you try to identify jason talking about a man. We had it. Rice drew peterson. You try to identify. Evaluation is where it's at and so at the end of the day evaluate recruit. Win some lose some. Cyo used to always say you bet. Three hundred in this thing. You pretty good so for me. That's how i view job. I had to two kids kid ever jin. He made some noise too. So yeah guys. I'm just done with the whole people. Tell me who low major major. 'cause now the high majors is still in anything at a bitter load average sixteen point so today enemies pamper that. Tell me who not good enough air fan. I don't even want to see them scouting wine. Lucie that jason harder absolutely right that key to it is evaluating stealing fellas When eleven to spurs for us i was in a recruiting warwick presbyterian at north dakota. They laughed at me when i signed invested laughed at days. He's playing in the big shots tournament. I'm gonna laugh at. I was right down. The road would try to get out laughing at right. That was a that was a true evil right there brother classic case our people know what the hell you looking for. See it you stick to your gone. You laid on the tracks for that dude. And that's what he got. Lost art and our game soon especially at higher. Evaluation is a lost art. People go off on who recruited who or who would who got these media offers. I trust my eyes but it's a lost art. I'm not your boss. Boss in your school is chasing having a number one and two recruiting class. dose kids are still gonna get handed over to other programs. Is your boss or with the school one. Like when heavy recruiting glasgow want some good players. I'm gonna say this respect jerry's in kansas. I mean they had a quarter of devante graham. Who's going to abstain in frame state. right that's bass as a great valuation now on the people. They think that that's a blue blood having a program but those two to be a major guard people said You gotta give card styles credit. Because if i'm not mistaken he wanted to go see jordan mclaughlin with sc and it was back rule. Eighteen sides him in vegas frank hat one part of his hair braided and other half not braided. And katie. what goes see jordan. He'd like a little kid picking up his new ninety four feet and he called coach. Said is this a flute.

Can you guys hear me okay from the island? I gotcha I gotcha doing well. Here line and we got allison coming in who had last week off is back with US tonight how you doing Alex? Hey Joe I'm doing great man I. Miss You got sentimental of it was a long week for me man we had had a good vacation some time away and happy to rejoin my brethren Steve, you joe and meat man I'm I'm so pumped for the show. It's going to be a great show with Robin. We've got some really hot topics that we're GONNA talk tackle. Yeah, we definitely do. Already, we got Louis in the bullpen. So who you just hang on there, we will do a little house cleaning and we will get to you as fast as we. Got Him in the joining us. So let's start right off We want to get to baseball is that baseball is back this weekend in New, York, city at Citi Field and Yankee Stadium I watched a little bit of everything I can't watch the whole game But. The first thing that stuck out to me was the people in the stands that city field with ridiculous I don't know if you guys. He's ought. To. Yes a hardcore. That's I mean. I love the fact like the real was done. You know it's like give me anything and I'm happy Happier Than Akin to candy store. But yeah, I mean it was like Wax Museum it was. It was very plastic. It felt like Kardashian Concert I. Mean There's a lot of you know there's cardboard cutout, but you know between the between the lines on the diamond I was just Elated. To See some pro sportsman and that's Everyone has a favorite sport or two I mean love it or hate it. That's America's pastime. So I think it's so important for the country to start healing through through sports. So I thought overall, it was good. It was a little sloppy but the overall missions. And you know the message that that things that can come back to the way it used to be with pretty resonant with me. So I, I like. Allergy. you know I I'm glad we're starting to play some some games and that they're they're finally back obviously as we talked about on this show at great length, there was a lot of Conflict between the owners and the Players Association before they actually got you know to to get on the field and that's why this that's why we're in the situation we're in where they're only gonNA. Get to play sixty games. It's 'cause they fought over you know money and uh all the little things they players wanted and the owners wanted for so long. So I'm glad that they finally got back I think the cardboard cutouts are pretty stupid just going. Guys Watch any of the basketball tournament which the the former marquette players one this year but they they just had Kinda curtains down on the sidelines kind of just blocking out this the vacant stands and I, thought that was kind of a cool idea and was hoping that the MLB would come up with something. Cool. That would kind of take away from the fact that there was no fans there. But. Putting, cardboard cutouts just makes it makes people look at it and I think that's that's kind of stupid. But hopefully, they'll come up with something better. Yeah. I've been watching a lot of the soccer in Europe. It would they do. Is They just advertisements and? I think that's better. Idea I mean make money. Every news the fans aren't there I mean. Every knows them. Wanting we piping noise is another thing to put these cardboard cutout today it just it looks ridiculous I'm you would think wilpon with with and they did. Like of course. La and Oakland other teams are doing it and I, I hope to get over fast because it looked really stupid. Is Ridiculous on top that I'll take. The Mets Looks Lobby Joe? That's. Really quickly on the mess owners, I always dish it on Dolan. Deservedly it's another terrible ownership in best. Sports capital of the world you know they can't shoelaces but yeah. So leave it to them to come up with the tacky idea I did think I did hear something cool needing show on a duck wfan sports radio today driving up to go coach they're talking a lot Joe, you've probably heard just in a huge local you know New York's Fan, for baseball they're talking about Mike and up like a pita Lonzo I think if you make up a couple of colorful characters that would be really cool. What do you guys think about that? I. Did that back way back when when I remember watching those little kid Tommy Lasorda with time was third base coach of the dodgers. And it was really good. He was funny talked about all the players and killed one instance where a guy who slid into third sets. The end of the microphones wasn't that bad. Yeah. It can be fun with the first base only is you gotta make sure they're gonNA have some personnel. and. I remember it was grades eight couple of years ago when Larry Walker in mark grace timely worked. We're trying four hundred and they leave notes with you to each other with their spikes in the dirt and you know Mark, grace. Way goes he goes to Larry Walker Eugene at four hundred, and then when he got back event Larry Walker get hit three hundred. It. Goes on. ABC REPLACE The catcher would be good to it's just a matter of you gotta ask the personality. In it makes. Me You're a big your big baseball guy just like throw i. it's it's cool. You would love this on the drive a couple of hours ago going going out to the field they had. Sean Keith. You know the mayor, you know M obt star and he was such a popular like jokes and you need A. Colorful guy that keeps you chop it up and tell jokes and Joe Great Point on the it's gotta be a for basement. Because you know it's a slow it's slower game and that's it's perfect for that Mike up to I mean you can't do that with Steph curry you can't do that without you know Daniel Jones giant stadium a baseball is good for needs you like the idea of Mike Up. Well they did it you know with the xfl and I thought it was really cool how they had the coaches miked up and you got to kind of hear what the play call was and also the quarterbacks were miked up too. So it was Kinda Cool in that regard hearing the quarterback called the play that the coach called and kind of hearing the back and forth. But you know this is all new territory. So they're GONNA have to experiment with it I. Don't think they want to do anything that takes away from the game, but if they can make it cool and make it kind of exciting and kind of Assad bar think it might it might work. And I'M GONNA screaming Louis Sitting on hold since I want to bring them into say low no allergy called this show and Saturday. So there we go. There's a lot of fun. It's great, show All. Right. Joe Thanks thanks again for calling Saturday. Really appreciate. I had a ball Houston creek commentary. You had a really cool setup. You had like an open bullpen like an open forum and he had some really talented people do. Tie. Develop a show. That's what I thought. The best way I can do it. Very cool. Very cool man. I'd love to do it. I'll do it against you in a minute was a black. Great. All right when you WanNa talk about baseball. What do you WanNa talk about? Well I mean I guess. He some of the Games this weekend it was a little sloppy but what you expect to bonds I, mean you know there's GonNa be you know the butterflies stomach again you know this was even longer than the usual offseason. So actually, I expect a little bit of Rust here and there you know pitching might be a little bit Iraq and getting might be a little bit off but you know I was I wasn't. At all. I'm not surprised actually any of slow starts I mean, you know you're out of your rhythm and it takes a while to get back. But of course being professional, you know they can say that easily and by the way I see that. Game last week. Digit. and. I'll tell you it looked like you know during the. First Opening Games. You know it was like blowout city and whatnot, but they really got there to play more competitive ball like in the later rounds and it turned to be you know a decent brand of basketball. But yeah, kind of exciting and I enjoyed seeing some of the former players that I'd watch playing college. You know the Marquette guys you'll have steak guys in Syracuse guys. It was cool to see and they've been doing this now for a couple of years. So I, think they're getting better at it and getting some big time guys to play in this tournament. I was I did I was really ruining sideline Kansas to pull it off me too. I've been I've been affected by a lot of people who cantered my. original co-host Got Me starting this whole thing. He passed away from cancer in February. So They they made it to the finals. Yeah I know you didn't get. You didn't get a chance to know him but he and I go back to when we just want to start starting out locally. And you know he passed away in February. I was devastated the person who brought me here nationally also has cancer, but she's Holding up, and you know it's like I just lose powers and whatnot and host. It's like I've lost extended family.

Push too much into this but would you sort of the Yankees in the first two games against the mets In like nothing to stop them I, guess what? What are you? What was your assessments I mean? We haven't even seen Garrett Cole or any COMPA. What would what would your assessment of them? Well. I was more on last night's game hanging the home on the popular thing and I'm like, okay maybe we got. Going here I mean it's GONNA take time for everybody adjust and everything. And I wasn't you know. Nothing really did strike me the first two games. You know just like so-called tuneup exhibition now waiting to see what the real stuff starts on Thursday. You know now when it really counts in the CEO cold got this stuff and when I taxes go. Up Tonight it's GonNa be okay after that that WACK. into. Unsound. What you had any after affects oh, he should be. Okay so far. said he was throwing on the mound today so hopefully You can keep that up have a relapse. No Kidding I. Louis Louis, GonNa plug for Saturday give me. In. The enhanced sports show. It's called virus sucks. Dot Com know. What does? What does okay. Now for Real I always do that the enhanced sports show we're seeing we're heard on Saturdays five to seven PM. East Coast. Time. The number of the callers five, one two. Five four three, four, six, six to RPI again, five, one, two, five, four, three, four, six, six, two, and you know we're GonNa talk about the opening weekend of baseball as whereas whereas the US going is starting to come together. Hockey. Basketball. hopefully football they get their act together I hope I hope. So you got time time between five and seven, a call all newcomers are walking greatly appreciate. Very much. And we have a we have our own wine. You're on with Connecticut sports who? Know matter. I'm not much. So which of Nothing. Much Michael just starting off a little bit little. Major. League baseball because. We saw the exhibition in the mets and the Yankees and those. Who is cut outs of bands in the in the mad city deal and also up Yankees taking care of business you. Check out any of the major league baseball like went on this weekend. No not yet man I just mostly been watching injury reports who's coming who's not coming and things like that trying to get the. You know the real rosters together. So I know who's in the line of. So no lemay you What what's the feeling down about the braves down there? I mean what are the breeze coming in riding high and do lose Freeman? Things of thrown into turmoil. Feeling down in Atlanta Braves. I guess all the brace. Feeling good to spread. He came back and need. The other day. So everybody feels good about that Marquette decided not to come. So that's GonNa hurt a little bit but I think everybody's riding right now man they happy just to Freddie's out there playing. Got That Talisman. Really happy to hear Your Voice Man. Martinez always been kind of a favorite player mind. I always respect players all over not just the mets obviously market because he's not going to be like three thirty hitter that a lot of people believe he's GonNa be like in Baltimore when he was like that's hot prospect pretty he's definitely a leader. at the same time. They. Have such good young talent. As as a huge fan out there now, are you really that concerned missing that guy I mean, you guys got some horses that are better coming in. Yeah, but I mean, we need another left handed Batman and beyond honest like we can't expect Albee's to keep having ceiling seasons and we can expect in the Kunar to sooner or later they'll be down a bit. So we need little more hitting throughout the lineup. So I don't know man we got a couple of. A couple of places in the line of the just look outs. The other thing is going to shorten season. There's there's going to be much trading going on so. kind of I don't have it. Now it's GonNa be hard for you to get it. What someone these teams gets up to some guy, a horrendous start and We'll give it up. I think they're gonNA nobody's talking about that. No, you're right. Nobody's talking about that. What do you do for Fire Sale and windy you do it. Because, I mean with a sixty games emphasize how could you know everybody's GonNa be pretty much close to condition I mean even giants should be so bad to where they're just out of it. You know. What's the deal with calling up players I? Mean I know a lot of minor league teams are shut down what how are they GonNa? When they can call guys up and mean, what's the plan for that? Yeah I have no idea man I don't just send looks down the day. That they. Even. Practice Games with the guys that don't make the full roster and keeping them available in practice. How much? I don't know because. Interest. Squad scrimmage is how much you really get out of it. The other thing is I think with the fact that you know this virus hanging over our heads you can't avoid be loose with a trade even if you fall out of it because you might. Get an outbreak you're not having a players feel team. So I. Think it's GonNa be. A season where what you've got right now is pretty much what you can follow through through most of the season and I don't perceive a lot of. Rating. Yeah, that'd be crazy, make a trade, and then the guy comes tonight fourteen days joined a year. That would be crazy. Yeah. I like Ta. I liked what you said though it's very on point it hits hard man you know that window wide open the we've said it before you said everyone knows it as a baseball fan that windows wide open the Pittsburgh Pirates Dan can dream. Tampa Bay is my darkhorse man la La India. No I. Mean I. Think Tampa. I. Mean. The time. Now it's too quickly strike so like any team could really win it if they get out to a hot stars. Right. And then what? What ten games issue the young Free Much but you know of course the You know. Jacob degrom is one of the few years with only a couple of more than wins so. You're have to win and win ten anymore like that. Anymore twenty game winner they're going to be rare rare rare. Are. The dinosaurs Hayes did you live down in in? Of course, college football. area needs a big our big college football guy I saw this that stood out today. fbis one hundred and fourteen days canceled already and FCS three, hundred, seventeen and to three hundred and fifteen games. Are we going to be able to get College Football Games football season in this year? So I I think they're doing everything in their power to try to figure out a way to to squeeze one out with you know playing in conference and all this other stuff they're trying to come up with. But this essentially man, how do you keep people safe when professional leagues we're spending millions of dollars are having trouble keeping people say how you do that at the college level? How do you have athletes on the team when you don't have students on campus like all of it just kinda crazy and then like the smaller schools that check receiving schools. They're not fielding a team so you don't get to beat up on them on your. I. I don't know I. It just seems like having practices, and since I think about young men and. Yeah, not the most sanitary folks out here and I think they're going to do a good job. Hundred hundred and five guys on the team like we already talked about as kids in Alabama were trying to get each other infected. I mean it's just you. You're not the smartest when you're when you're college age kids and it's going to be difficult I think to. Keep everybody safe to be arrested after really what frankly we all want to but. there's a lot of potential. things that can go south real quick with the whole idea. Unfortunately yeah. I'm hoping they squeeze it out open and or they can. But I mean those numbers are stark already a game of they canceled it now. I mean every day it seems like somebody else and like we talked about before with team that have no reason they're not going to be playing. Games, chips, they didn't they're not going to get. Mark. These mid majors who lose an of a date with Alabama with Michigan date. State, which usually gets big money they could rise they might just say forget it. I'm not going to do it Now as anything else on your mind they you've been watching any of the NBA or getting a clean bill of health from what I hear. Ready to radio for with the NBA, you got any thoughts on the NBA. Yeah. I mean they're on the same program. The NFL is on try hard and hope. Right. It works hopefully they can. You know finish the season and we'll see but just one college thing let's say every everything's canceled and they tell us no college football this year if a couple of months later they tell making create a couple of one offs I think all of us were signed up for that to watch like a one off game but bama gets Oklahoma or something I. think that's what we'll get like almost barnstorming type of limbaugh you show it. Or on TV whatever I, think fans will be happy to see that. It'd be good. Well, we talked about last week You know the big five or talking about breaking off from the NCAA 'cause they're not happy with Mark Emmerick? We now he runs lace and because they're the guys who pretty much dictate the television contracts and everything else they five conferences they're talking about leaving the MCA behind it going off in their own which. I could see happening you know I could see that happen very easily they sit there and go you know we don't want to be restricted by what the NCAA does but I don't know how that would lead to the other sports such as basketball football it worked for I don't know about basketball do you have any an and I? Well. There's no reason to comply with the NCWA like the only reason they have a torty is to give you the idea that student athletes and amateurism, and that whole thing that the NCWA kind of sales in order not to pay the players if they can't provide that anymore because now they look like hypocrites and people are kind of waking up to the idea. This is probably not a good system at that point what what are what are they to the power five? So I'm sure to five like. League and do our thing. Why are we waiting on these guys to come down with the compliance committee and and? Penalize people for these. You know silly infractions in order to make themselves look legitimate. So that whole building in Indianapolis to come down the NC double as a terrible cartel organization and I'll say that until it's gone. I agree with you. We talked about it last week. It's Tom. I think this is a real good time to do everything. You can to get away from them. They're already instituting the paying the players for their likeness and trying to get around it that way. So why not use this opportunity to make something good out of it and get rid of those guys putting money in their pockets for doing nothing. Khan and we all see through. No doubt. Right now is a thank everybody in brings the stuff that table as usual will be back on a Thursday night calls again and then night. I'm y'all. You. Backed out. Nice from Atlanta Great Guy always brings a a wealth of stuff to the table We have a lot of clean up in of course, in the seven thirty hour, we're GONNA break down the mcaa NFC east rookie camps the other going to beg to maybe if they can make that kind of division something more than he and. The least but one thing that came out in the last few days of Cam. Newton. Being very unpatriotic with the and I don't mean that in a national sense as much as in a Bill Belgian. Style sense where he came out with a tweet saying he's GonNa make all the other teams who passed on them feel bad I don't think it's a big deal, but it's very much outside of the new. England way of doing business what do you guys think about it? They choose. Yeah I think that you know is Cam Cambodian Cam but I didn't think it was overall like a bad thing I think he was just saying that he wants to prove himself and you know he wants to make these teams pay that didn't pick up on him and I think some of what he said was Kinda taken out of context in my opinion I, don't think he's I think he's had the talk from mobile check at this point if they brought him in, they signed him, they brought him in they they're they're basically telling him he's got to compete for the Job So he he understands he's starting to understand the Patriot Way and I think bill's already had a talk with him. I don't think they'll be a whole lot more you know coming out of his mouth that's that's GonNa be against what the bill check book says, but you know this was something that I kinda saw coming in the sense that he he does WanNa prove these teams that didn't sign him and that thought that he was done, he wants to prove that he you know he still got it. So I kind of understand where he's from in that sense. Well let me ask you questions both you guys is it worked so well for twenty years doing it the button down Patriot way you know we we think one thing but we say another always, we don't let you know thinking but let's say that's not the way the modern athlete. Does. Not have on walks does not how they act that's the acting my college. We've you see it's I I mean great coaches adjust to I mean don. Shula went from being a run oriented goats to surpassing all over the place with with Dan Marino you know the modern athlete you have to adjust to I. Guess you think Bella Checks will evolve in the way he lets his players act with having him up there or will you need to? I think I didn't show on. Of the rapid fire yet joe is definitely nick. Certain. Times are changing Bob Dylan. Style you know. The green coaches everyone and their brother knows you know they cater to their best their talent, the talent on the roster. So. Yeah. Bell. Check is brilliant. He's he's maybe the best coach of all time. Love Him I respect. To the death Peter that offense we said that Ad. NAUSEAM. Already I think maybe they'll check. Now you often Tom Brady kind of like speaking his mind and Tampa. Maybe maybe Bella check is ready to kind of evolve and recognized that some of the top athletes like to you know, get their voice out there and need just real quick. To totally agree with NEAT. You. Know. I can't do the former number. One Pick heisman trophy guys resume is better than anyone pretty much. So yeah, he he kinda felt like you know got done dirty. So yeah. I I me that he didn't really George totally. Ridiculous he's he's a crowd big time athlete any hungry and he wants the world to know that you know he's he's motivated him to I. think that's a big thing challenging himself. He's put out there that he's holding himself accountable by saying that if you think about it now everyone's GonNa be expected them to really be great. Okay people were calling three, two, three, four, one, seven, six, seven, zero, one is connected sports. Guys would take phone call all night long except we have a guest coming up reading up from eight to eight thirty right now, we're going to break into a little breakdown of the rookie. That, we can expect to see coming into the NFC which natives put together for us Nate what team you want to start out with Well I figured we start with the boys. With the Star on their helmet just because they do have a following and we'll hit on them I just because they're the cowboys and they were going into the draft looking for a linebacker for cornerback probably looking for another offensive lineman but wide receiver was in need and when they picked at seventeen and CD, lamb was still on the board you know they I feel like they thought they. They just felt they had to pull the trigger and I think it's a good pick You know CD lamb six to two hundred pounds runs a four or five forty I mean the guy. Was Amazing. It was an all American sixty, two catches thirteen hundred, twenty, seven, yards, fourteen touchdowns. He's a playmaker The cowboys already have that Amari Cooper who is a sure handed pass catcher he is a big target but now they've got a burner and they've got a young burner who can fly with the best of them and it's just a he's a highlight reel waiting to happen. So I think you know picking CD land was a no brainer he's already. Got That Number Eighty Eight Jersey donned on his back and I think he's GonNa be something special for the cowboys so I love that pick They also came back in round two and got Stefan digs brother trayvon digs out of Alabama and I think that once again, that was the best player available they've Lost Byron Jones in the off season they they needed a corner and they took the best one on the board. So I really. their first two picks and then came back in the third round and Gotten Ville Gallimore who was a defensive tackle out of Oklahoma six to three or four redshirt senior played a lot of football games. He actually was from Ontario Canada and was the top prospect out of Canada and Twenty fifteen. He comes with a really good resume third team all American thirty tackles seven and A. Half tackles for loss four sacks. Two four fumbles got a great motor active hands pretty quick off the snap. So I think that I'd give them a B. Plus just with those first three picks are really liked what they did and think that they added to this football team that that was pretty good. Last year. What What did you guys think of those three guys? You want take it. I Alex. Oh Yeah. Well. The Eagles padding their site then on guy like Didi lamb made your your You know you bring it straight through Reddaway as always. I mean I was sitting there on draft night like Oh. My Gosh. This guy slipping he's slipping he's flipping the bird I knew how he rose men I knew Doug Peterson we're like salivating they should have moved up. who they traded with to get see the cowboys I believe they've moved a future second or third. The Eagles should have done that in a heartbeat they hesitate. The cowboys they love trying to you know get one up on their their hated rival eagles, the cowboys switched, and like you said they, they already have Amari Cooper. It's kind of like it wasn't. It was a luxury pick when a guy has to be the next maybe like Randy Moss or Beckham. Falls to the late teens I don't care who you haven't receiver. You just pull the trigger. So. Yeah. I mean I think that kind of just one the draft for the Cowboys Room I love what you talked about what the the Canadian background of the other player. So I mean I mean when you when you when you hit a Grand Slam, the first gaining. The rest is Kinda gravy. So yeah, I don't like the boy I don't like the boys but I got gotta respect their drafts. Well for me is always Dallas seems to make the right moves, but can it worked out on feel porn? They're one of those teams that they're kind of like a fantasy team. You look at them and go my God every time they've got work and it doesn't work out. There's always something missing would just team ever since you know the the troy, Aikman era in Tony Romo when he had the they had teams and I mean in the last couple of years, they've supposed to been the team to make the big. Move. But you had the rams jump over them, and then you had the forty niners jump over now you Mike McCarthy coming in I think the bigger question over anything I. Think the draft is solid. There's not about a argue with any living about the draft just like a couple of years ago when they reinvented invented their offensive line and made that monster and offensive line, you can't you can't go against anything they do. But if there's something missing in Dallas in will Mike McCarthy have. Things they need to put this all together and make them. Dangerous in the playoffs because. He had Aaron Rogers up in Green Bay for years only had one ride. Did it with Super Bowl? So I mean Dallas everything was good like I said, you know it just it's GonNa. It's GonNa be what goes on between the one that it'd be. Okay. But as far as their draft, you gotta give it high be. A break. Everything. They picked with what they needed in. No argument. Enjoy I. Think would you have? Would you have an all all worlds? Maybe an all time top ten. I'm not gonNA take him as such but I mean. Fuck is. An incredible player then you have. Just, an elite elite off at the one three all pros on the line. Now they have. Now, they add like one of the best receivers one of the best side in the last ten years I mean. Let's let's look at the Honest truth there. It's GonNa come down that Prescott. That's what I. Yeah I think that I think that you know they feel like what was lacking was was the coaching and I think that's why they made that move and brought Mike McCarthy in and now he's got to produce. He's gotTa prove that he's The guy and he can get them over the hump. well, time will tell. Our. A where we moving on from Dallas big. Yeah we're going to go right into the the redskins or who whatever their name may be from your going forward, the news. Yeah. The Washington something they've been in the news quite a bit with the name change and Let's be honest. They brought in a superstar and I'm not just saying that being a Buckeye homer number first round second pick overall they didn't waste any time they didn't. They didn't listen to trade offers they sat right there. and they took chase young who is a A generational talent I mean, let's be honest. The guy looks like a super hero out on the field these six five to sixty, four, thirty, three and three fourths arms ten chance. He led the nation with sixteen and a half sacks only played in twelve games serving a two game suspension. So sixteen and a half sacks, twelve starts. That's you know that's saying something right there and then he also had. Twenty one tackles for loss I think the biggest thing about chase you on that impresses me was that he got better. Each year at Ohio state mean the guy came in five star talent out of the Matha. High School in Maryland. So he's kind of coming home in the sense but he he just got better every year and obviously Larry. Johnson works wonders with that defensive line. But just seeing him get better every year he won the bid Narvik. He win the Ted Hendricks. He won the broncos. Award he was in the Heisman race I think they they hit a home run with that pick. They had some good defensive Lineman with sweat with Ryan Kerrigan, they'd got Jonathan. So they do have a pretty decent pass rush, but you couldn't pass on chase young and they did the smart thing I think in in taking him where they did I. They compromise you know they comp him to. Julius Peppers he just had. A huge leap in production and he's just that quick twitch athlete that you cannot coach. He's got those things you cannot coach I mean he he he brings it with this talent. So I think that was an amazing pick after that I kind of think the redskins draft I I didn't agree with all their picks. They didn't pick again until the round three pick to where they took in Tonio Gibson out of Memphis. He's a He's a versatile player. He's explosive. He ran a four, three, nine forty at the combine I played two years of junior college ball at East Central Community College, and Mississippi So he is he is a talented guy that's played some football but I just what is he is he a wide receiver is running back. I don't know he played both at Memphis he had thirty eight receptions for seven, hundred, thirty, five yards he had thirty three carries for. Three hundred sixty five three hundred, sixty, nine, yards, twelve touchdowns overall. So he played a little bit of water severi played a little bit of running back, but you know what? What is this guy? I don't know you know that's what we're going to have to find out. So I think they would've been better served just getting a standard wide receiver to help Dwayne Haskins evolved into the franchise quarterback but you know we'll see maybe they know something I don't Time will tell but I did like the pick they got in the fourth round. They came back and took with the second pick. In the fourth round they took Sadique channels who was the six, four, three, hundred, and twenty one pound offensive tackle from the national champion Lsu Tigers Basically the only reason he fell to the fourth round was that he only started nine games he missed six games because of disciplinary action. So I think that hurt his draft stock and to pick him. Up in the fourth round was a huge get for them but you know there's question marks surrounding them. What kind of motor does this guy have You can keep them out of trouble. So you know there's question marks guy but he is a talented player They came back in the thirty six pick in the fourth round and took Antonio Gandhi Golden, who is six, four, two, hundred, and twenty, three pounds. Receiver out of liberty. So they went small college with this guy, but he did I did see him at the senior bowl and he does have a lot of talent and obviously has a huge frame pretty good size ran a four, six, forty at six, four to twenty three. So he can get up the field and can be a good possession receiver for them but. Overall I. Give Him a be just because of chase young these other guys I think are question marks and they're going to have to prove it. Wants to get there. I mean it's hard to go away from tation on not did not give him an I mean he could be awards, Taylor Julius peppers that type of impact glare coming right in a box of game one I think the biggest questions in are going to be and that guy gets in I mean, could you see him being Allen Tamara site pretty pretty bad type of guy where did you play running back kind of a slot receiver? Kind of guy maybe that's how they envisioned because the thing I would ask and this is somebody's GonNa need. A lot of weapons around him unite discusses at length you know my about the. quarterbacks for the big universities you better make sure they have enough weapons around The thing about asking which is really gonNA I find Intriguing back that. Alex Smith is still there and he's the only urban Meyer quarterback who actually worked out in the froze. And you know all these other quarterbacks never seem to make maybe Alex Smith to get getting a little coaching out to take with every Meyer give you in college and moved out into the pro ranks not a big hashing believe I'd I say one thing that defense of the giant scares me and I mean that alone that defense could give cast 'cause enough time or short deal where he could develop into golf compensate who knows where he goes from there Alex you. Been Well, let me let me go on skin a little bit. And then we'll move into my dirty birds will move into my philly analysis. Yeah. The skins man that you made it interesting point earlier certain teams like almost Dallas. They almost have vanity rosters you look at them. You said they had a good dio and Joe. You're always very on point you know your football as good as anyone. But. Yeah I mean they added like a Ryan Kerrigan Dave brought so many good players under Shawn Springs passed away but they've had some incredible drastic but then they've also. SPENT, really early round first round picks on like Jonathan Allen in Alabama he to be like all guys. The next Reggie white I think he's a role player so but The, they're going to nail it. She's youngest since ended he's General Generational as native. So, they're starting to make them right pets. I just thought it's almost like if something's amiss. On Dallas is often. Something is missing on the Washington deep because Lord knows they load up in the draft year after year Washington goes abby. And they have all these big names. And then I can watch the Eagles scored three touchdowns them and a quarter. So I it remains to be seen. They've got to walk the walk out. Defensively. George, you want me to transition into billy. Name was GONNA do to Philly, and then you can take them on. He'd had to trinity I got the. We go we didn't do filling next I had the giants, but we can. We can go ahead and jump into Philly. Yeah, we got the you know they did have their biggest needs. We're wide receiver, and actually I, agree with Alex I think they should have gone up and either got You know one of the kids from Lsu or you know got up and got CD lamb or one of the kids from Alabama just I liked those receivers a little bit better than who they they sat back and waited to twenty one and took Jalen Rieger out of TCU He's five eleven to six was a junior coming out he had a really good. Season in two thousand, eighteen, where he was the team's MVP and had seventy two catches for over a thousand yards averaged fourteen point seven to catch and had nine touchdowns. But he took a big step back in production in twenty, nineteen, forty, three catches six, hundred eleven, yards, five touchdowns. So you know was that due to him taking a step back or was that due to the trouble they had on offense and quarterback I think it was more on the quarterback and the offense I think he's still a good player but just like. Those big faster receivers a little bit more than him but he's a good player. His Dad played in the NFL Monte Rigor and was a former star Texas tech. So he does have the NFL pedigree and should be a good player forum is as far as returning kicks as he did a lot of that at Tcu, now I really loved the second round pick they came back and got jalen hurts a lot of the Philly fans were were not happy with the pick considering they just signed. Carson. Wentz long contract but Jalen hurts. Is a great talent player I mean if you remember back to when he was a freshman at Alabama, he was first team all this CC freshman. All American. Let him to the National Championship just a just a great player and then you know we saw we all know what happened were they to came in, took the position over ended up leading them to the SEC championship game, and then Jalen hurts came back in as me and you talk about Joe He he stepped up off the bench went seven for nine, eighty, two yards and. Threw touchdown touchdown to win the SEC championship game and that just Kinda showed the character of Jalen hurts and then he went on to home ah picked up right where Kyle Murray left off and won the big twelve championship for the sooners. So I I love this guy and I went back March a lot of tape of him and to be honest I I told. Alex I. I didn't see a whole lot that he can't do and you know Carson Wentz is a good quarterback but he has gone down several times in the last few years and you gotta be available to be successful, and now you know if he does go down, they don't have to they don't have to roll out some forty year old padding trend that. Know can't can't win the playoff game they get to the playoffs this year when it goes down now they got jalen hurt. So I really did like the pick I also liked They got Kvant Wallis in the fourth round and then the third round they got debut on Taylor out of Colorado I wasn't in love with him but I did like the safety out of Clemson von Wallis so. Overall I give them about C. plus but they did they did get some good some some good talent and I think I think some of these guys will help out right away like I said Jalen reader especially in the return. Game. All right. Let's go ahead. Yeah thanks God. Nate awesome breakdown man Yeah I'm south to talk Philly. Philly. Yeah Reeker I'm GonNa Echo nate sediments. Rieger again, not gonNA beat up beating the drum for an eighteen time they were in love with td lamb. They didn't make the move and then get aggressive they suffered the consequence when. Jerry Jones landed there guy I was surprised. When it took Rieger I thought a guys. I. Thought I mean Dr, Jefferson is a tall. Very durable, very efficient receiver out of obviously Joe, boroughs boy I you. I that I had eggs number two they passed him and it's very fascinating as a hardcore eagles fan they took a Sean Jackson. Clone rigors a little bit more cut. He's a little bit more you know. and. Built out but he's her. Okay. So. Went went and especially Doug Peterson They date when they are really kicking the you know what and taking no prisoners they are throwing the ball deep. they're fast they're that. They'RE NOT GONNA slow down they love the deep ball ever since days the Andy Reid they love to throw and Doug Peterson is you know Andy Eddie reads second son so they love to throw. So Rieger. It's interesting regardless of dishonesty ridiculous actions Recently with that ridiculous instagram they're over. Jackson's and other guy can't stay healthy. So they're planning for the future always young. Jeffrey. On their current rosters. He's already a slower guy up possession guys. They're really lacking speed over the top. and then. Just on that speed team Need you know this guy very well Gee Arteaga whiteside they. They burn the second round pick last year on this highly touted white white out from. Stanford. And the Guy I've never seen a guy looks so unprepared and so slow on an NFL yoke he was such a book. So. Yeah. alshon older alcon also has been causing problems locker sean injured and causing a lot of problems socially and they pick a couple of bucks. So Rieger kind of fits them They add another staying on the same topic of wideouts real quick. They added John Hightower, he's a burner for Boise. The quest walking league another fast. Just over the top tickets off. Guy I don overall. You know I'm in love with. you know sometimes the truth hurts no pun intended. Yeah. You have to have a credit turn falsely I want wants to play forever he could be injured week too. So, now he's like they'd set. You don't want to rely on some half that. well, if walked. From Clemson, obviously ever sentimental Clemson, my favorite player ever dock and I don't think he's got a for going to resemble him but he's a hard hitting safety. He was a two year captain out in a great program and Clemson this guy brings it brings the hammer I, like his potential and then joke. Like you said, they added a few linebackers very raw. The projected. The guy they added third round I think he plays he's played three years of football in his life. So very raw. He goes for whatever reason. I love trotter in the old linebackers Byron Evans they don't value linebackers. So the if project linebacker. Mass and then lastly. One thing the eagles are not getting any younger one area is offensive. Line Kelsey might retire tomorrow or next year. Computers, they just brought back. They're all pro future hall of Famer is thirty nine years old. He's come up to Achilles tear. He's almost three hundred, sixty pounds. So there and then brandon. Brooks. They're all pro guard. towards the a couple of weeks ago. So they have some holes in that all important off. It's one. So they added a pair of Auburn Guys Jeff Smith goals in the fourth of big kind of a big efficient offensive lineman. You could be plug and play written right away and then they added knit you'll get a kick out of this one. That Guy that Guy Prince from Auburn I Prince Chico, wanted to in the seventh round he's about six eight and a half. Offensive tackle. Again, they're of rolled the dice I think overall. me and me and very the overwhelming majority of fans were a little bit dismayed early on they didn't get DVD. That we were a little bit surprised by her. I'd give. But that to me, they made it back up to me. By adding succeed and some offensive. Lineman. A solid B.. I'll give them the overall. For me again, it's it's another one of the the NFC has to do. Transformation and get back to where they're respected division and all of its to me with the coaching It's a solid draft. Would I look at a Jalen hurts thing I I think that they're bringing an insurance policy against wins they they were in the Super Bowl wanted three years ago and having sniff at sense They're. Being that was young grown in ready go for multiple super bowl and again like the cowboys. They were overtaken one year by the Rams in one year by twenty. Nine. Doug Peterson looked like he was the new coach, the guy who wasn't afraid of guys like ballot check ready to go one on one with him. I think he knows that he's kind of on the clock right now he's had the weapons chaplain spend. You've been the best team in the worst division in the NFC and hasn't been able to get out of it to make any any ways and every they were built for the big gotta be built in the playoffs and Carson went is yet to win a play or be a playoff performer. So I think that's why Jalen hurts insurance policy. Yeah. I'll give out there but they're great of be but like it's going to be what McCarthy does in Dallas what Rivera does in DC Peters gotta give me the Peterson of two years three years ago not someone we've seen the last two years and then we'll see what Joe Judge. That's my feeling on it. It just it's. It's like last year they two years ago. They had a lot of DB's go down and then last year as Alex said, they had alshon Jeffery get hurt they had to sean get hurt and then you know, did they really get better by getting rigor I mean I I don't know I mean he's he had a good season in eighteen but. I wasn't real impressed with his nineteen film, but you know we'll see what happens he. He didn't have a great quarterback, but you know the giants were the last team on here they they definitely needed an offensive lineman. This goes back to their busted pick of Eric Flowers a couple years ago a lot of Miami who was just just a horrible horrible offensive lineman. I think he's down in I think he actually is down in Miami now they've moved him to guard and he's he's decent guard, but you know they drafted him to be a book in tackling he was out of off. Their roster within three years so that that was a bust they're hoping that their first round pick four overall this year we'll do a little bit better. They took injured Thomas Out of Georgia six, five, three, fifteen he started as a freshman at right tackle was a freshman all American and sophomore, and he he moved to left tackle. So you know this guys played a lot of football obviously left early as junior but he started every game since he got there and it's just you know I think he was the most sure pick. He was the first offensive tackle off the board and I think that he Took the safest choice with Andrew Thomas? I think a lot of people thought they might take Bechtel out of Louisville that the jets got just because he was a little bit maybe a higher upside. But as as far as the safe pick goes they took Andrew Thomas and I think he'll be just fine Their second pick was in round two, pick four overall Xavier mckinney a safety out of. Alabama this kid is you know everything you want in the safety I. I was a little bit surprised that he went as late as he did he was first team all this. He see ninety five tackles five and a half tackles for loss three sacks four force fumbles, three interceptions just a high football I q guy a lot of toughness. He's very versatile be able to cover those high-density. Only ran like a four, six, nine, forty. So I think that might be one of the reasons he dropped a little bit but he's football fast. So I think he'll be just fine and then pick a pick three for them was round three, thirty fifth pick overall and that's a local guy from You guys they got offense tackle. Matt per out of Yukon big guy six, seven, three. Eighteen he's from the from the Bronx, New York and originally from Kingston, Jamaica and his family moved to the to the Bronx. He is a huge man I mean he passes the eye test he's got good athletic potential but he's he's a little bit of a project. So you know I think I think it was a good move getting another offense attack on the board just you. To be there and you know be a backup probably as I two years maybe a year three starter but overall, I gave him I give him a C. Plus B. Minus 'cause I did like the Andrew Thomas and the Savior mckinney picks But later around guys you know I wasn't as high on We'll have to see whether or not those guys pan out but I did I do like. Xavier mckinney he's an Alabama safety and those ten to those tend to work out in the NFL with ha ha Clinton Dix and you know Fitzpatrick and Pittsburgh all this. We could go on for hours talking about all the safeties that have excelled in the NFL coming out of Alabama. So I really liked the around to pick for Xavier mckinney starting at safety for them right away you. Guys. Feel brawl. They finally buckled down they didn't play as sexy or cute. They addressed their glaring issue off sensitive line editor, Thomas. Murga with you I know you Kinda have to look a little school well, I didn't realize it was. Pretty. Cool. He's a he's a bronx. Scott. Joe In mckinney's. mckinney's a hard hitter I like to I like to. Give plus. I- giants have to fix their defense I, mean as much as people can complain about Eli over the last three or four years They gave way too many teams too many games in the third and fourth quarters with a lead they they gave up leads more than I think I've seen him since I've been alive as a giant fan I mean he would ridiculous I mean you can't continually give away the game third quarter. Against teams that are not even better really better than us. So I mean that's something you're asked us to giant fan I think the fact that they would have been. in west, you get a chase young unless you get somebody you know like a change Joey Bosa somebody that you know is transitional. Go. And hopefully with the death, you'll find a bunch of good players and I think that's what they did. They got the we went through the office of one and they need it like you said, mckinney is a good a good addition to into their. Backfield's they need someone is smart and can do it. So I think they did everything they went with great We have somebody on the line right now I wonder if our friend, rob. Adams on second. With the. Guy This. That was a good guess. It is rob Adams. Good. How Gel? How's everything? Doing very well doing very well. How are you doing? You know we're we're doing. Okay. Surviving the pandemic as best as we can everybody's healthy and I think that's all we can ask for. Why you're on here with me, Alison Natan we're getting right started right in with start with an overview. When you're looking at what's been going on? I, know nobody has a crystal ball Do you think we're going to get both seasons or do you think there's one or two sports again get a full season what sport are you worried about most and you think we have a chance of getting all these this stuff done we've been looking so forward to. I do think the NHL. Has the best chance they're going to play in Canada Canada's numbers are good. They're not letting letting yet letting you back again. You know once you're in you're in you're not. You know you're not coming back So I like the NHL Chances I think they're going to have a Stanley Cup raised there I think once the NBA settles then I think they're going to be okay as well. I, think the bubble has a good chance to survive baseball worries me because of the traveling elements but we're GONNA play there's GonNa be a baseball season how much of it I don't I'm less. And that we'll see a full baseball season. when you Rob. Joke I'm sorry. Rob. You sit there and diverse background. He called some of the biggest games in Connecticut state his free. four, hundred games. Called I mean get down that's that's remarkable i. We Really Fun I was really great, but we didn't I saw conversation on Sunday and we're kind of getting up to hit it hard tonight about you know I kept in Tampa routes and my dad mom or not in that area I tried to get out there. What some of the What's the deal on the minor league level because right now I mean they're kind of like waiting being right? I. Mean What's what's the heartbeat on that overall operation? Well Minor League. Baseball is You know we're all upset. We're all pretty sad in the minor league baseball side Obviously, the opera season got got whacked by Major League Baseball. We don't have the players anyway social distancing wouldn't work. You know I. I'm with the Hudson Valley renegades and our GM and President Steve Liners said to me there's no way we will play in an empty. Stadium we we rely too much on revenue from ticket sales. Major League Baseball doesn't need that as much minor league baseball does. So there's certainly all those elements going on a lot of sadness with minor league baseball, and then the bigger thing is what about the contraction that might go on and minor? League. Baseball because there's talk of up upwards to forty to fifty teams that could be eliminated thankfully the. Aren't one of those teams and I'm really grateful for that If anything the rumor is that the renegades would become a full season team one, hundred, thirty, eighteen games team give or take So they were play a full season. Like survive as well. So there's hope for some of us, but there is a lot of uncertainty as we look into a twenty twenty one minor league. It's Really interesting. Given. You know Tampa, Bay minor league system and. Then I'm sorry just to close out Rob Rob you know calls the shots on that on a minor league affiliate for Tampa in Florida has been hit so hard I mean that's another tough tough. Deal with I mean, it's gotta be tough. It. You know it is tough. It's tough for the renegades as an organization of stuff for the raises an organization. It's tough for everybody obviously and have the raise in the marlins are going to get through it and then of course, the Bible in Orlando that's you know it's all going to be fascinating stuff to watch going on. Hey Rob, this is nate I just was wondering are do you know you're talking about the organizational? Do you know what's happening to these players? These minor league players that are you know basically out of having a season what are any of them GonNa be primed to get called up? Are they are they just out? You know Kinda waiting to see what happens at this point. Right now, nate, it is an entire weight and the for all of these minor league players Certainly there are the big time prospects. You know every team has got them the Yankees had the day Garcia's of the world guys like that but. The the younger guys, the guys that are playing. You Know Hudson Valley for instance is a short season a that's you know it's a bottom rung. It's basically a rookie league. They're trying to work their way up. You don't come down you go up at a fallen in a day you're out of baseball Those guys is are all right now in a pure wait and see mode and everyone's on hold on twenty twenty one. Scary awful time. Well, that's gotta be. Tough for. Those guys. You know. You Know Rob we about baseball and it's going to be such a short season. I think the the trading deadline is August thirty first. If I'm right at give if they have it or. Do you perceive that we were talking before and I don't think there's going to be a lot of moving I. Don't think teams can afford. What if they have an outbreak when it's that happens I. Don't think teams can give up and especially a shift like someone was saying on radio the other day figured the Yankees might arm available to go Garrett Cole they might reach out and give up one of their prime young young arms but I think it. I think it would be more close to the best this year about trading. Do you what do you think about that? I agree with you I I. Don't think we're GONNA see a whole lot of moves this year I think it's just it's a unique year. It's a year in which we all have to adjust, and there's been so much optimism and so much conversation about it Everybody's gotTa take on it but my opinion is This is unlike anything we've ever seen and I don't think we're GONNA. See a lot of moves going on I think baseball's. A chance that you know the pirates are playing awful and they would give a piece up somebody or somebody like that I suppose but it's a sixty game sprint anybody's in play coming into this thing, and that's the scary part. That's the part to me were baseball to get in a lot of trouble because it would be embarrassing to have. For argument's sake you know the Marlins and the Oriole somehow winding up in a world series you know what I mean that would be dangerous. But let's. But, it could happen. That's the scary thing. A team gets hot for sixty games. They could be right here in the middle it. Rob You know it's funny I I I actually really deep down I. Love the idea that you know anyone anything's possible here. For lack of a better phrase, you know the windows wide open we're talking about it with our buddy nods. Out Atlanta earlier before we were joined by. it is a little bit a little bit daunting though like if that, if that kind of nightmare sports comes through if you get to. Total. Bottom dwellers both naked in. That's a little bit too much to stomach I. Think I think you're raised Tampa might do it. you have a I mean this is my question and then they job and keep it keep it moving I, mean who who might be your your personal prediction for world series. It's hard to argue Yankees dodgers right now, Alex because these two teams are considered to be the best in the business right now the Yankees have all the pieces they've got everybody back. That's where the pandemic is the favored. The Bronx bombers judge looks good. He had a couple home runs the other night against the mets although I think three of us could hit home runs against that mets pitching the other night. You know I think the team just looks much healthier Paxton looking like he may be a factor as well. Pick back Tommy John's so there's a lot of good on the Yankee side of things health wise and the dodgers would mookie you know and I feel I feel for red SOx nation It's tough to talk about Mukhi out in La But The dodgers can be right in the thick of this thing as well. You hate to go straight chalk right now Yankees dodgers feels like say if there's No doubt you got sound like they got stanton back to play and he hit a home run last night we were talking about the the organization and these minor league players. You know another another group of people that I'm feeling bad for no rob down here in Tennessee and We have a a cubs affiliate here in AA for the Tennessee. SMOKIES and I you know who I feel bad for the fans I mean. Some people can't afford to go to major league games and they go to minor league games and now with the pandemic hidden, the way that things are going there may be no fans that any baseball games but. I know with no minor league ball it's GonNa hit hit people that that take their family to the Games pretty hard. What have you heard around there from fans or anybody disappointed about not being able to go see some minor league ball this year. You're right on the money. You're you're absolutely on the money the biggest loss for minor league baseball is smaller towns in the smaller cities you know think about yes fish. New York. Okay We're we're fiscal New York where the renegades play there in the shadow of of the Hudson Valley and getting into New York City. Okay fine. But other places don't have those options. You know what Burlington Vermont got got the lake monsters. There's you can't run the Boston and go stand outside of Fenway Park that easily you know you're a four hour drive away at that point. So what I'm saying is it's a big loss for your summer entertainment and all these might not draw. Eye Bulging numbers he's jaw dropping attendance numbers. They still matter. You know they still matt full that they provide. Entertainment for the summer even if people aren't necessarily paying attention to the game and we'll be the first. To admit, the game is sometimes secondary. You know it's the in between inning stuff and it's the food and. Stuff going on around the ballpark but it's all part of what gets you into the ballpark loss here. Definitely You know arrive we were talking before to is about the idea of making up players it's a great theory they're talking about today about PD Lonzo doing some I can there and we all know it's legendary the conversation at first baseman and catcher have catches up with players either at the plate or when you're on first base But as I was saying, you gotTa make sure you got someone glitz someone doesn't carry on a conversation What do you think about the idea of making players? Well I. Think they picked the right Guy Impede Lonzo you know love or hate the mets pete on so is really difficult to dislike he is such a good person. He's Paul and Baseball needs a guy like him You know the three home runs last year off and it he helps revive. The idea of the old Willy Willy Mickey and the Duke argument now it's judge versus Alonzo. It makes for some good discussions around New York in terms of WHO's the best player stuff like that and Alonzo's got the right personality to be miked up. We'll give great great dom. And Baseball needs that kind of guy. So I I think he's the right Guy Trout is wonderful I love trout, Trout's Nas the right guy to do this kind of thing though. Get Rob Ruckman on that. Point Lonzo I'm a big guy but I love players from here to Atlanta to you know California. Yeah, I agree. Drought's is transcendent talent. He's not the right fit he's a little bit too buttoned up for that Alonso like Joe said before you know you want good tax or you want some lively discussion, you WanNa, Tommy Lasorda you want Bobby Valentine. Sean Casey or Lonzo. You've covered some incredible. Tampa Bay's always been blessed by their scouting system to have such great young down through the years. You guys that you called plays for you know coming up through the Tampa system and then. Kind of build on that like maybe who might be a good Tampa Bay rated do that to get miked up. Oh that's a good question among you know the raise aren't flashy organization in a lot of ways you know and that kind of reflected in their manager Kevin Cash. He's not a big. You know he's not a big personality guy the rays of just kind of been there. Now I just missed Longoria at Hudson Valley He was there but he was there. So we that he basically. Basically, hit a ball up to poughkeepsie and they're like, all right to the next level you know so. I JUST I just Miss Josh Hamilton. Thing as well. I did get to see a few guys You Know Edgar Gonzales had a had a cup of coffee with the Padres I got to see him briefly you know some of the other guys who hung around Hudson Valley we're Wade Davis James Shields for a little bit. You know. So there was names that made it through the next level from the rennick which which was fun to watch and you know Tim Beckham started with Hudson Valley you could. See he had a lot of talent. He was the first round draft pick. So a lot of fun to see you know player. It's great developed and great to see them from other teams more sometimes you get advantage and this is where in New York helps us you get to see someone rehabbing like a Carlos Beltran came down to Brooklyn. So I got to see him at Brooklyn and up to touch up in Hudson Valley. So that was kind of Nice as well. That's cool. Yeah, I mean with the games that went on this weekend we did see a little bit of sloppy play out of the gate and everybody probably expected that but with the shortened season with all the time off. What do you think? Do you think that the pitchers have the advantage with this format and seeing the teams that are going to see or do you think the hitters are going to have a better opportunity with the way things are shaping out with the scheduling and with the sixty game season? I think talented pitchers are GONNA be the way to watch. I think that there's have the advantage right now their arms or a little more loose. The bats aren't as loose yet I would think I know for instance, a Dj La- mayhew leads needs a little extra time if you extra at that. just to see him make contact the other night was a good thing. But I do think it leans in favor of the pitcher question. I rap one thing. I Kirk. Sally. Didn't end up with With you when he was coming for Tampa Bay was, did he get through there or no? The game? INCURRED TO SALLY? Oh, no I I saw ca as a high school player at the you know with Maron Ellie on the football field but I didn't get to see them in the minor leagues. I just. You know he didn't make a toss invalid. He was a little higher up. All right. Well. which which is a little bit and go NHL. We never really get to cover any challenge. You WanNA touch base with us about that a little bit. We got the NHL. Playoffs. Coming up and one of the first things that came to mind when the war Mak came up. We all looked at that rangers matchup in the first round and bringing the king out of the closet and dust off some rust and put him against Carolina what's your feeling about giving the king one chance for a ride through the NHL playoffs? Well the problem there. Of course you know Henrik is he's battle tested, but he's not the starter at this point. Certainly, there's that idea that, oh, it's kind of fun to give Henry that last chance and you know in a lot of ways things have soured. fricking. New York You know folks are a little tired of not seeing him get to that next level. Certainly, we saw him get to the to the Stanley Cup final against kings and he played well in that series. There's always been that little frustration when it comes to. Henrik. Lundqvist that. We saw too much of the G. Q. Fashion shoots and not enough fashionable safe to Get when that frustration you know over the years but he has been a great ranger, his numbers going to hang in the rafters all that's going to happen. He's GonNa go to the Hockey Hall of fame and I don't think there's any question, but it's not entirely Henrik's team. So it'll be very interesting to see what the Rangers due. To, a two-goal system in this situation, how will they handle it? I'm GONNA really be fascinated to watch that. Yeah No yeah and rob I want to build on that man i. mean that's the warning. important topic I mean in in the Big Apple Man MSG the Rangers are finally back. The Knicks have been just dreadful for years. So now that they finally have a shining light and I I agree with both you and Joe, you know this time to shine. We don't WanNa get too sentimental and like Joe said which I love a funny quote. You know you don't bring out the rusty blades and put put the old guy on the ice just to have a feel good story I think. They. GotTa Start. The, young guys. Eager, he's very extremely talented young prospects. He's the faster more agile goal. I mean. At. What point? So first of all, you would start Eagle Rob and at what point would you maybe go along with during the game during the series Well I think it depends on excuse me how the series is going and how far down are you know I. If you're not if you're not often the series then yeah I think you, you give Henry Consideration. I just I can't do a feel good. You know my mind is just watched tombstones over the years. And Look I remember eighty six. I wrote it for the red SOx against the mess and eighty six. I Love Billy Buck but you gotTa Stapleton Playing First Base there you know what I mean you can't fielder. WAS ON. The end of the day you know. No doubt. Hey Rob I was wondering to you were talking about the format up there in Canada and it sounded to me like the Eastern Conference. playing in Toronto and the Western Conference is Playing Edmonton. What what happens after that? Did they meet up somewhere? I was I was trying to look and find out what the what the format is once they get to the cup. Basically, the conference finals and the Stanley Cup final will be in Edmonton Everythi. The early early stuff will be split as you said between Toronto and But the rest of it's going to take place out in Edmonton. So I'm I'm fascinated by that I mean I'm into all of it. I can't wait for the NBA as well but there's something about the NHL I tell people this all the time. If you are not a hockey fan, there is nothing like the Stanley Cup playoffs get into it. I. Don't care how empty the building is. You're GonNa Love Stanley, Cup hockey there's nothing like it. Well. The thing about the steelers playoffs this time around everybody has fresh legs everybody's going to be healthy. I, mean. Usually you guys are chipped up or you know dealing with the injuries dealing with just the where down of their bodies from an eighty one game season or eighty two game season going into the playoffs these guys the only question I have I talked to Go Cj Murtala about this last week because you've state very university voicing or men's team and I wondered what he thought. About getting into the mental grind. Batting off. So I know they're going to be prepped fresh legs I. Know they're gonNa be feeling good. I mean Chris Kreider should be healthy things like that should be great for both teams. But the mental grind of playing hockey games back to back. Every other day what do you think that that'd be something you'd be. I would be worried about it because again, it's this brave new world that we just don't know anything about, and so how are they gonNA survive? Mentally you know where the lack of a crowd have any impact on them I don't think will. But at the same time, we don't know until we see this all starts to happen. So I, I'm with you I questioned what this format. Is going to do to all of these players what's going to do to these teams and I think we're GonNa have you know hopefully some great series but I, think we're in for some surprises as well and and that's what makes to me the rangers as dangerous as anybody going into this thing I think is just it's it's a fascinating thing to watch to see who's GonNa raise the COP. Yeah Rob for sure man and you know, let's stick on You Know New York City. Man. Relevant recent the rangers or fight elite back in the game so to speak Very you know the landscape. In. Eastern conference is a tough one not gonna be a cakewalk, but they're you know they're back. They're back in the team they gotta fight her chance. So you look at Pittsburgh, you gotTa Ovechkin, you mighty capital you got of course, Sidney Crosby, and with you see the Rangers right now I was like say, if you'd better schikler shekel if you're a betting man, you see the raiders really having a legit chance to maybe become miracle happened again like the days of Messier and leash and richer. I don't know if I've got the four to to see them in a Miracle Situation I. DO Think Carolina's awfully good. Talent team but the Rangers can pick them off and that's the thing about all this. You know I think it's going to be a lot of fun. You know you mentioned Kreider and there's so much talent in their top the bottom for the rangers and the Rangers the reason I bring that up is they were kind of you know swimming their way through the early part of this. You know and in a regular normal season, we wouldn't have. But here they are all of sudden now patterns upper part trophy you know. So you got a team that's got so much talent on it now with a Hart trophy finalists. Why not take a shot at the ranger I? Think it's going to be a Lotta Fun. Yeah, it's GonNa, be awesome. Yeah it looks like the The bruins are One of the one one seat here to what are the what do you think the chances the Bruins got to win this thing Boston's very good That's a very good squad I if. If the pandemic hurt anybody I, think it might hurt the Boston bruins because it stops there moment and that they were rolling can be hard. Up Again, you know. So they were rolling exactly. They were on fire I. Think you know bruins Rangers down the line would be really fun to see but the bruins awfully if they can get it going, the bruins are going to be very good. And let's go inside the bubble with basketball You know everybody seems to concede is going to be You know probably the bucks against one another to La Teams. Do. You think that like a team like Denver or somebody could get in the way of those that to that La. Collision. I do I. Think you know I think there are a lot of teams that can make some noise in this situation as well. you know you still have to consider there's a lot of talent up and down the the Lakers certainly with Lebron are going to be heard from the clippers. It seems like it's western conference heavy It does seem like honest as time to get there but you know what's going on with the Celtics what's going on with other teams can the next get healthy and caused some trouble I don't think they can I think there are a little too beaten up too many players have failed on them I think you're not wrong to say that it's the box coming out of the east, which will be fun. We haven't seen Milwaukee take a run at an NBA final in a long time you know probably all off the top of my head the guy's name was lew alcindor the last time they made a run you know we're talking about. So. It would be it'd be fun to see that and I love stories like that. You know But you gotTa, you gotTa know that Lebrun and the clippers or those teams are waiting in the western conference I hope I hope we've got surprises because that'll make it more fun for everybody. Yeah Rob sticking stay staying in the bubble so to speak. the I I love. I love NBA Basketball Man I went to a game. Jordan Pippen when I was like fourteen or fifteen out now, the swamp on the medal and playing against off thrust petrifaction. Those guys. So I've been hooked up. Yeah. So The small team the. Market Denver. I'm a big I'm a big blizzard guy. they have a, slimmed-down Carmelo. Anthony now playing small forward to get. Back they have a great young power forward is. BACK DOT com. So they were missing the best two big men for the whole year. Blazers might be able to kind of a crash the party. I'm glad you brought them up I agree with you I agree that the blazers are very much a factor in all of this a lot of talent at. Wide and I was thinking to myself as I finished my last answer. Forgot. Defense. Could Blazers. Awfully good Portland Swat that reminders cernan. Reputation the western conference? So Jack I wonder what you can do to answer. Yeah that we talked with Kaley who's reporter for the rockets last week on our show and she had a lot of good things to say about him but it's it comes down to stars. When you get in this tournament format, we all know that playoff basketball and you know she seemed to be. Pretty high on her team should be and I I i. think they were playing pretty well, but it just comes down to can can harden and whisper do it are you a believer in the in the rocket? Not Enough No not all those other teams I think that Martin spoke. Westbrook so good. I'm not a believer to see them go that far not with these other teams guys there's so much talent in the western conference when you really think about it, you're three teams that we just lined up there, and now you're going to throw the rockets in the next I struggle with the rockets. Yeah. I don't believe in the Antonio either he can. He can get some points scored but you know he's always had trouble on the defensive side and it's GonNa coaches are going to be factor in too and I do not believe Dantonio can get it done. There's no. audio. To do you know ason kid because he has no J.. So There's always a good joke in Oh I. Love It. I. Love it Joe. WanNa stretch a little bit in the NFL nine jumbotron will. Touch on topics we got here. I know you're Pittsburgh steeler fan and You know now that you know the the the great bell check doesn't have brady anymore. What I I know that you guys hate patriots moments much eight the Ravens What's your feeling about Brady leaving in New England or do you think cam going up there? What's your feeling about that? I think Cam if cam becomes an established player. I have no reason to think that he can. But you know I. Know I know Bella check like stiff? I know they're gonNA push that avenue but. I don't see why the Patriots can't still be good. My thing is I'm not GonNa bet against the Patriots until I really see the third done and right now to me, they're not to me the right in the thick of the the AFC east to me. They're still a factor I'M NOT GONNA say sixteen and but can I see a way that the Patriots are eleven and five? Yeah. I absolutely can and I. I can see where there's enough allen with either of the quarterbacks to get the job done for the page I, think it could be really interesting year for Bella check and. This is the chance for Bella check to cement himself just that it is for braiding they will why should they need to they don't but from a certain level to the doubters. Gives these guys a chance to say, Hey, we didn't need the other Brady can go off and do his thing how about Brady against Bella check in the Super Bowl how circle would that be you know? These guys make that ultimate. Meant there's. No doubt and the Patriots you know they had the number one defense in the NFL last year and I think that signing Cam, you know that just gives them a fifty percent chance to to succeed I mean they're going to have to put those two guys up against each other and they'll play whoever does best. So I can see it and I think that the the. Patriots have a good chance as anybody just because they are still in the AFC east and you know they got the jets and the bills and that's what we've been talking about a lot is who can beat them in their division and you know what do you think rob? Do you think the jets or the bills could possibly beat them I mean we we don't think so. I don't see. I don't see either the jets or the dolphins the bills maybe feel a game from you know maybe they're right there at the end of the season I think the bills are the other team in the AFC that can make any his with the with the Patriots. It's one of the Patriots were to make. Level you know it it's going up against whole read again with the chiefs. Sore. If the steelers are right on against the Ravens, that's when things will get a little crazier for the Patriots it's going to be more. So a playoff scenario I just don't Chris is being a five hundred team in my opinion. Look. Let's holiday but locked in for a moment. On. The on the AFC there's a lot of drama obviously Cam Tommy Tampa relocated. The bills wake me up if I'm. Wrong the bill. Where were basically bullying the Patriots twice last year they made it into the play offs Tom and Gronk left. if there's a time to strike when. A vaunted you know glorious opponent like the Patriots have been if there's the time to stretch now, the bills have some of the best young talent. What of our good friends with this show Mike Dave. Oh is help lead the Scott Department for the bills I. Who's your prediction right now in these dropped WHO's GonNa? WHO's GonNa Capture that crowned? With the Patriots I, well, I will stay with the Patriots because. you know look at it this way the Patriots were for more. The Patriots they were humiliated in the playoffs last year when you really. and. That just sends Bella check back into the laboratory like the mad scientist and what is Bella checks tend to do when he gets dumped on he comes back out with A. Vengeance and again I'm not saying. I'm not saying fifteen and one but I'm saying even ten and six where they beat the heck out of each other all this year something like that you know something where they're still a playoff team I can see the Patriots and I will stick with them and I'm fully prepared to be wrong and have the bills. When the division and I will kept my Catholic but I'm not picking against the life you don't lose. You know Rob The winning I worry about the Patriots more than anything else is The coaches they've lost floor is Dante Scar Nekia now is the as less area and from what everybody says best offensive line in the NFL. You lose a lot when you talk about your offense and I mean over the last few years, they've lost a lot of coaches who were fellow checks. Right hand man in way he runs his thing up there where he wants to be able to change on the fly and change in the middle of games and the game plan according to the opponent having teachers go out there and teach people are is really a big thing. How Do you think the coaching staff is GonNa be an affect on Bella check I don't think it's going to be a huge thing for the Patriots I just think that. There are teams that know how to reload look. We've all been many of us unless you're a patriots fan we have all been waiting for that moment where we can take the dirt, throw it on the Patriots scrape. And to Alex Point, it feels like it's there but you gotta prove it to me. Ballot check finds a way to reload all the time get good people whether it's players on the field or off off the field or better cameras lined up so they can treat that's a joke but you know what they find this. To get the job done. Through their credit. Yeah, it is. rob I mean we you kind of you know one time. I got one more question for you as the FBI came out with a A. A projection this week where they they looked at the NFL the next three years came up the power rankings rated the Ravens First Kansas City second. The thing that disturbed me, they rated the jets and giants right behind each other at twenty, nine and thirty. Do you really think the. Teams are in that bad a shape. Do you think they're that far away where three years from today we're still going to be looking at these guys bottomfeeders and looking at the top of the draft to reload or a day that far away in your mind. I don't think. So I don't think jets. Now of the jets giants aren't good I think the giants are pro a bad year I. Think the jets are middling at best The jets have to figure out what Darnold is is he the answer? Is He the big time? quarterback is Danny dimes the answer on the side you know the Danny dimes thing I'm calling him that but in reality is that nickname died almost as soon as it happened so. These two teams have to figure out who's leading the organization. I can't see where either team's GonNa be that bad for that long the giants always find dancers. Through some rough stretches and then they put it back together and then the jets do just enough. Tease their fans that they're gonNA be real. Again, they do Justin up to get you know to an eight or a nine and seven year, and then poof the right back to being three in thirteen. So I do think I think both these teams will not be that bad in years from now. All right eight. Robbie can't thank you enough for your time and we'd love to have you back on again soon you have going on with the minor league where where can people find you something you're doing that Look for you. I'm always busy guys you know. I was supposed to be doing a baseball game tonight at Greenwich High School that got. But I'll be damned very high school on Thursday and back in. Greenwich for the weekend and next week and always on on WGC doing my show double header, which hopefully I can get you to say hello on as well four to five. For Friday and you know we'll get back on with minor league baseball next year and fingers crossed off a high school in the talk about boy I'm having my out there. Yeah. and. We'd love to be on your show and Another thing is you know as we get closer to the football season, we'd love to have you back do a preview show with. Will Get in touch with, you'd be willing to come back and do that. Anytime. You guys want me I'm back say the words. Radical. Advocate Name Your copay. Right, that was rob Adams a great great time with him Last one, forty benefits brought. To The table, you can definitely tell that he knows his stuff and then it that around sports for a long period of time and brought a lot of the show, we can't say enough that we will definitely have him back again You know he brought a lot of the union what we were GonNa talk in the last half hour I just know dabbled on it with him about the jets and giants being rated that low I think. We can do the last portion of the show on that unless we get a phone call three, two, three, four, one, seven, six, seven, one, two, three, four, one, seven, six, seven, one Joe Alex, and meet waiting for your phone calls. If you want to chime in you guys I, mean you know as a giant fan if us me if bugs me because I understand as we talked when we were doing the the preview of the rookies, their defense is not that good and here you know we have a rookie had goats and but I I see promising the quarterback. I should promise in the half back I see some promise in their and. And I don't see why they can't turn it around y people will just looking at the scene year after year like they're bottom feeders what do you guys think? Yeah. I think that I think they're not as bad as rated I. Think the reason they got rated so low is just the fact that you know the number one thing and and football the quarterback positions. We all know we've discussed it at nauseam and there there's two unproven they're both these guys have shown flashes but you know we're we're high on them. Sometimes you know some people are higher on Danny Jones and others, and you know my thoughts on Darnold I'm not a believer. So you gotta get the quarterback situation figured out, but they will either these guys will do it or they'll dump them and get somebody else, and then the other thing is they gotta get to coach's. Coaching situation we got Know Adam gays and we've heard Alex is thoughts on him and You know we've got the new coach in New York so I if if he can prove that he can do it. He comes from a good system. He's got a good background You know the G. men they go up and down and I I can see them coming back if they can get January Jones right and get the defensive problems fixed I definitely think they have a lot better shot to be further up and have a decent run in the next couple of years more so than I do my jets. Absolutely, I'm going to jump on that. Bandwagon Show I. Mean you bleed blue. Yeah. So About all the. Examinations we've had on on the draft. Young Joe you remember obviously that you remember like. The giants won a few very meaningless games late in the season ending hampered almost handcuffs. Their chances to get. L.. Hyphen rusher. So they battled hold on a big Wiedeman a safe nick. Deep upset. Not Require. So yeah no they have to build up that defence and I was at a couple of I've been to James that the eagles traveled to New York. But it's a lot easier for me to go to them to Philly then. Joe I mean the eagles were like struggling the giants were in control and like you said Joe. Third and fourth quarter man it's a nightmare, the giants. Will give up every third fifteen opportunity to know person team. They've no pass rush their linebackers and stuff sacks. Yeah. But but but need to I mean. The giant at least have judge Alabama David, New, vision if a new leader. They have more pieces than the jets I agree with nate I would definitely rent the giants maybe like. Late, maybe early warning the jets are in the cellar. And what my problem is. I mean we've talked about you know not telling. You, know winning those games you gotTa try and win in the NFL coaches. This tanking stuff I understand it's something that everybody talks about it. It's a Mel. KIPER is a message. ESPN. Isn't come up you know taking a draft choice you gotta try. You GotTa show you can win I mean the even when you're you're losing. For the right reasons shall we say when you're losing to get better draft choice? Those losses still count look what happened to David Dale with with the Knicks I mean they said okay, we're in a tank this year, and then you're going get sign on and you can't. God. Group as if you're a coach, you can't afford to take. The thing about these people these commentator Oh should pay only should stop those losses still trying to get your record and all of a sudden it's like, Hey, we didn't get that draft choice one and now I have a bad record. So where am I going with this or? Strapped choice you want any doesn't get to start those losses they still on your record going. No, you're fine I was just I was agreeing with you. It seems the teams that are you know tanking always thinking of the future they seem to be the teams that are always still thinking about the future. If we look back at the dolphins, there was a lot of talk back in the day of tank INFO to They traded off a lot of their big name talent like Laremy Tunsil and Kenyan Drake Minkah. Fitzpatrick and basically what they did in this draft as we talked about last week was trying to replace those guys. So you know drafting players high and getting good draft picks is great. But if you dump all your your big name guys, you just have to replace them and I feel like you gotTa Try and Win Games they did a good job at the end of the season beating the Patriots like. They did but you gotta play the Games that you're in the you have in front of you and I believe that winning breeds winning, and if you can just win a couple of those games, you know even if you don't get the highest draft pick, you can sign a trustee veteran or you can find somebody in the later rounds and the late around and still come up with a key player for your team. So I with one hundred percent I think tanking is not the way to go. I love the I love the. Miami Dolphins Angle that we're all collectively taken guys. Interesting. So I've heard through. The Grapevine. Just different rumors apparently I mean Ryan for it Austin young coach as we all know he was brought in there with a mandate of sorts saying we're, GONNA panic. We're GONNA take for two of what they want it. They want they want budge board games with its Fitzpatrick. and. Now, he's considered like one of the best young coaches you kinda put his foot down and said, we're not thinking so like as progressed the dolphins turned it on and I agree with you guys it's never it's never beneficial thing I mean the coaches are trying to stay employed. They don't to go to enforce in. in but the bigger thing the players in the game. Players when the Games on Sundays and Mondays and Thursdays. GIVES, it instills in them confidence if they start winning games that Patriots Win Nate, that's massive for the next five years. That Locker Room in Miami they know they can be dealt check. So I mean, yeah I never want WanNa. Support Tanking. That's all. I'm going with what you were saying need about trading off to play these players they did add maybe those players were of the problem maybe they had to get out of that losing atmosphere and Goto place like Texas and get around a bunch of guys there used to winning Jj Watch watch they would start winning again. Sometimes these guys get into as you say that you know the the the culture of losing and it affects them and you can't bring them back. So you have to get rid of them. So maybe that's part of the reason you know Florez, those guys saw it is is the fact that You know tunstall and you know was just never going to turn it around there because he had losses that because of all the losing I, don't know if that's true or not but I don't know what you think. No I agree I mean I think that there was they didn't think they were going to be able to sign him to the long-term deal. I I know we talked about on this show a couple of weeks ago. You know the Houston's where able to reward Laremy Tunsil with the highest offensive lineman contract in the NFL right now and I don't think the bengals or excuse me the dolphins were prepared to do that. So you know there was reasons and and sometimes, and change of scenery is the best thing that could happen to some of these guys but you know it's Just. My point was if you get rid of a bunch of guys, the first thing you've got to do is replace them before you can take that next step up, and that's you know one thing we've talked about on the show is that the the dolphins to overtake the Patriots to overtake the bills and Win The AFC east they've got to get to that next level. So they got to replace those guys one and then to they've got to get those next level players that can get them over the Hump and get them to back to being a competing team for the AFC crown. You. Know we got about ten minutes left. So I wanted just cover something through a little bit of curve at you guys something we didn't. We weren't ready to talk about some GONNA throw it out anyway you know, Major League Baseball's coming back and whether they think they're boost talking about coming into the season was used to the Astros we're GONNA take goes say They don't have to worry about. That work out for them. Yeah. No. That was exactly what I was GonNa talk about when we were talking about the cardboard cutouts and I was like you know the biggest thing that bothers me with not having fans is not being able to Razz and yell at the Astros players I mean th this is kind of being overlooked in my opinion the way that they you know the whole scandal and all of the the kinds of the layoff that happened to the pandemic and all of that I think it's Kinda lessen the blow on the Astros and not having fans in the stands is just GonNa. Take away from them be getting yelled at every single game and here in the heat from Chidi Mike they did to steal signals and win the world series. So I think that's huge. Cardboard cutouts can can be there, but they're certainly not going to be able to heckle the astros like they deserve. Well you know what's you know? What's GONNA heckle? The Astros is some guys on ninety eight mile an hour heat at rollerblade on out to invade or Springer. Korea okay. Let's like back. Okay. You need twenty thousand people to watch you if someone has an issue with someone. And they're looking for payback. It's all like, back. Alley. Old School. pitchers are going to be gone for those Stroz. Thing is you gotta worry about that. Remember pay back goes on both sides of the of the of the diamond. You hate to lose one year guys we've done if they start throwing at each other I mean it was one thing about this whole shooting thing. I still say was more widespread than anybody's talking about is supposedly about the memo about the Yankees are supposed to be. For with the way to know when you know what really you know defcon four of the other teams wanting more blood. General Manager to manager be fired makes me think there was more going on than meets the eye, but it'd be pretty funny. Now people just start banging garbage. Dugouts just to make it just to disraeli. Yeah no it's. Gotten obviously, I never advocates you know don't want anyone. Hitting the head man, you know coach kids like I've seen some of and you were you know out in Ohio man. God injured I never. Like pushed, the envelope of getting people hurt I still think there will be some retribution and like they said I agree it's not gonna be as electric but yeah, I don't think the Astros were Kinda off the hook yet. Definitely see even I on that because we what I saw this weekend, the Yankees unfortunately, it looks like they're going to have Of unless they totally claps I I would I saw them this. We didn't even know the to tie with. So Delfi was nothing to write home about there. To Go. and. I I'm just afraid that the mets will go the other the other way, and we'll have to listen to the Yankee fans again, all all summer oil at least won't be all summer long. You'll be most of August. Yeah. Well, I I agree with what rob said I think that the you know the delayed start and the pushback it helps the Yankees more than anybody because they've got you know to not Tanaka is GONNA hopefully be ready to go. They had a bunch of other players in Aaron Judge and Jan Carlos Stanton both coming back from injuries you've got Luis Severino who's coming back from Tommy John who knows whether he'll be able to make an impact or not, but just getting those other guys back and having them in the lineup and hopefully looking like they're going to be healthy it just has to help the bronx bombers and once again make them the favourite you know coming out of the Al.. One. Last subject before we were, we got about nine minutes left no preseason football. What's thoughts on that? Yeah, I mean I I heard that today and I know that was a big thing that the players union was pushing for and I understand all the talk about you know making first player safety and and all that. But as I talked about a week ago, it just it really hurts the young guys and it hurts the rookies. It hurts the guys that are trying to make the roster and having no preseason games. It just benefits those teams that you know were. Last year and have a lot of players coming back. These coaches who we've talked about on the show quite a bit that are brand new, and that's still have a lot of them met their teams yet well, now they've gotten no dress rehearsal. They've got no way to go out and figure out who that third fourth receiver is figure out who the special teams players. Are GonNA. Be You know is it? Is it something that's good for safety? Yeah probably. But you know I thought that it might be a good idea to go ahead and play a couple of preseason games just to get the just to get the itinerary set and to give these guys idea of what it's GonNa be like playing football games with the pandemic so. I'm not sure I agree with totally getting rid of the preseason games like Kinda hoped they might be able to negotiate maybe one since you know the players union was really pushing for zero the owners wanted to play too because of the free money aspect of it. But I was Kinda hoping they would at least one so that they could have a dress rehearsal. And and get some of these young guys out there running around. Now it's just going to be those free agent signings are going to be that much more important because I really feel like a lot of these teams are going to steer towards the veteran players and just because I haven't not going to get a chance to see these guys go out there and play. Yeah. Now, Knoxville up my brother I. Totally agree you know the. So important man just to get out there and just mess with the let the closest. Coaches know what people what people bringing the able but. You know there's nothing like a criminal. There's nothing like a preseason. You don't WanNa go in there. You know half lock. Borough week one. So yeah, it's trouble bomb. If the really important issue and it could be very interesting to see out all plays out. Well Good A. Prime example where it's going to create. kind of confusing is in Chicago you're GONNA have to stick with your bisky because you don't know what full is going to be like in that offense if I. You know what I mean on the skilled is on them or I'll I'll never stick, with Mississippi State Nick and there's no and I know many eagles? Guy I. Is. Yeah he's not my quarterback. But see if they had a couple of preseason games, they could you know play trubisky in the first quarter and play foles in the second or rotate amount and kind of get a really good idea of WHO's going GonNa give them the best chance to win, and now they're just going to have to base it on practice and we all know that you can play against your scout team as much as you want. But until you see the real bullets flying of an NFL, you know posing team first team defense. It's it's GonNa be difficult to judge and that's a great point Joe in. That the the quarterback competitions and the ones that exist do you know a lot of these rookies are probably GonNa have to sit and wait in favor of the veterans in that aspect too just because they're gonNA, feel more comfortable with the guys that have been out there before with with no preseason to speak of, and they're not even going to be able to do You know these two team practices that they've done in the past where they brought in another team and let the one bang on each other that's not going to be allowed either so it just it just sets everybody back that much farther. A lot of teams across the NFL ordinance came over window. you might have a you know like Some some of those guys have committed some of those guys are sitting out I mean, at least the bubble, the NFL going be a very interesting to survey Laughing on forbid. He's show me. is still his feeling like seem honest I go with Nick foles yeah I'll give them. I mean. You could be right. Thing is that you're busy knows knows the dynamics of that offense were full dozen yet? You don't have any TA's or anything else to speak of I. Mean I was real sack. Bulls is going to the gym. So. and He's played in three different offenses in three different years and having to learn another one via zoom meeting isn't giving him the edge. So I really think they'll probably start off with trubisky as much as I don't want to see it I feel like that that you're right. Joe. I. Think they'll probably run him out there at least to begin the season and then at the first sign of falter they're gonNa pray the Saint Nick and Save Them just like he did your eagles out. Guys got yeah. You got the on point Know overall if I had to look ahead and like a month into the season, you know they're gonNA play it today they have a great event. They have an awesome home crowd i. YEAH THEY WANNA get out some x three one, and then not if the probably when Mitch Trubisky struggles, then they're going to nick. So Knicks gotTA learn the offense. That's a good point. All right guys we are down again and other good show tonight rob was great. It's good stuff going on on Thursday night, we are going to unveil the top twenty. NCAA wide receivers of all. We had a lot of fun with the defenders. We're going to do the we're doing that we are trying to. Set up a guest doing toge- as of yet I got a couple of people in work.

"Part about it. He introduced me to white castle hamburgers. So we just became really really good friends and and the doing i Playing career up in new york We did so many things together. He was my room before a little bit over. Four years and we did so many Things on and off the field and it was a great time and he was my brother and It was just like a relationship it was like. I don't know if you've ever seen the movie drums slowly and you're talking about a catcher. That was had cancer and the pitcher took actually took care of own and it was the same way with us. Where you know. Fortunately i wasn't sick. But i went through a lot of injuries and Him being team captain of the team. We just hit it off and it was wonderful. He was the greatest up. I think he was the best catch revive. But seeing and we just had a great relationship and makes all the sense in the world that you would write this book. And i was very interested in a quote from his wife diana. She said i was so pleased to learn. That ron was writing a book about his friendship with thurman because i knew that he would treat thurman fairly and show a softer side of him that so many people were not privy to what was the image of thurman munson to most people. Then well to be honest with you. I mean. He was a grubby nasty You know he was a guy that would actually give in your face. He was actually a guy that was like a general patton You would you would actually die playing with him. And he was team captain. He was a guy that He was a no nonsense guy. a type of guy that would always be dirty. When he came to the ballpark. he never shaved. Sometimes he wouldn't take a shower and He was he was a rugged type of guy one name that way. I mean obviously people are the way they are because of things that maybe happened. In the life of the way they were raised What did you know about him that maybe gave you an indication of why he was the way he was to be honest with you. I really didn't know his major background. I do that. He did not get along well with his father. He didn't have the greatest Rapport with his father and So you know they had some issues but you know even a guys you know the guy that actually Almost grew up with also went to ken. Stadium from canton was jean-michel stick michaels and stick with always say that he was the same type of guy. He was the same type of guy in high school baseball and he was. He was just a tough guy he was he was like a he was a blue collar. Guy you know you could picture him. Put a hard hat on and working in the steel mills and That type of human being. And you know. I mean you know. He used to come to the ballpark unshaven. So i mean he was a tough guy but he was but you know wonder field. He was he was rugged but all filled. He was the coolest calmest. Wonderful guy that you have ever met. Tell me about the yankees of the seventies that you both played for not too good you know. Unfortunately the yankees were our own we played with. Cbs cbs. look at us as a Just as a business where they could lose some money. But you know i mean. They didn't want to spend a lot of money for free agents. They didn't want to Spend a lot of money for trades. So i mean it was it was it was owned by a business so we got very very lucky. We got bought out by the greatest owner. That i have been around and you know. He was George steinbrenner where he bought the team when he purchased the team in nineteen seventy-three. Nobody knew too much about him but after six months we knew a lot about him he was. He was the same type. Forgot thurman it was a no nonsense guy He was a guy that you gave him. One hundred and twenty percent. He was wonderful but if you give them a hundred nineteen percent. Let me tell you something. This guy would destroy you on and off the field. And but he was a great human being and one thing he said when he came to new york and he sat us down when they Fired bill burton and they relieved them with Billy martin and he set to us. He said whatever it takes for me to bring a championship back to the new york yankees and back to the new york fans. That's what i'm gonna do. I got deep pockets. And i want to spend money had to have this team win and he i he memphis and i mean if you did not hustle You know you can bake up a physical errors but you better not make too many mental errors. And and he was. He was a guy that will tell you the way it is. He was a guy that will Release you the second. He's a guy you could talk to the people up in the front office and he's fired everybody that was in the front office and he brought them back the next day but that was a type of guy was he was he was a. He was a tough owner but he was a fair owner. And like i said before you give it all you have. This guy would do anything in the world for you. We only have a minute before we have to break but back in one thousand nine hundred seventy three quickly tells the story about you and also munson and a couple of teammates that were called new his office in order to get haircuts. Yeah you believe that. Let me tell you something. Nineteen seventy-three That was a year. I screwed up. A game of baseball became the first theater in nineteen seventy-three april the six against louis tian okay The yankees are just coming back was just starting to play good baseball and i remember It was oh gosh. it's probably you know. Most of the guys will get to the ballpark early to play pool or the play cards or just to get ready for the game. And there was four of us a five of us it was myself thurman panella nettles and catfish and we all got to Our locker and it was a note and it was like a little lennar. George needs to say you right now and we looked at each other and we and you know and we're doing pretty good and we looked at each other and we said you know Did we get traded each. You know where we going we released and we can't get released because we have a good year so we went upstairs George had his barbara actually write a behind him and he looked at us he said blew me always calling me bloom and catfish and we had pretty long hair in the seventies. I mean we'll hippyish. I mean this is the style you know you were. They root jackets and you had pretty long hair. And we went up there these Y'all need to get a haircut.

Usa here's ron bar. Ron bloomberg is with us on sports. Byline played eight seasons in the majors with the new york yankees and also the chicago white sox but his teammate was a captain in the new york yankees. And he's written a book about thurman munson it's called the captain and me on and off the field with thurman munson one of the miss. I would guess say mistakes. And most people made when they thought about thurman munson was a catcher so he must be slow but that was not. The case wasn't absolutely not people looked at and we always call them puch and because he was party. And you got a guy and mickey rivers call them squatty body and here's a guy that was like five ten that two hundred and ten pounds and this guy move. Believe me. I mean this guy i mean he can run for catcher and You know he was just a great athlete. But you know he didn't have the greatest body in the whole world. One of these guys. Six three two hundred fifteen pounds. Chiseled he was a big and strong but he had that type of body and he was quick as a cat just like when he was catching He didn't have the greatest arm in the world but he had the quickest release of anybody in the game of baseball. And like i tell everybody. This guy deserves to be in the hall of fame. And i had no idea why wasn't but i knew why he's not in the hall of fame because he wasn't the nicest guy in the whole world riders. But that's why i wrote this book and that's why this book is going to This book has been out for one day and we saw tons and tons of books already and it's number a number two in the best seller and i'm so proud of it because people are getting to know what type of guy thurman was off the field and that's why i'm going to do everything possibly can't to bring him to the hall of fame. Tell me a little bit about his relationship with pitching staffs. Because as you know. Ron that communication is really a key factor in the success of a pitcher with the team. And i'm just wondering catfish hunter who i got to know pretty well when he was with the oakland a.'s and knowing catfish has personality kind of laid back easy going. How did those to work together. And how did the rest of the pitching staff work with thurman. Well let me tell you. Something that was is i think he's major because he took total control. You watch him during a game. I bet you he did not call a picture of more than once or twice during the whole game This guy knew everything about catching. This guy has a computer in his head. He knew how to pitch he knew how to Have the patriots throw to him He had respect from everybody These pictures they they look at him and you know like the book says he was a team captain. He was a team captain for the whole team but he was a major asset for pitching staff. And when you sparked allow when you had catfish hunter when you have kidney holtzman than we have mel stottlemyre. And when you have these guys in sparky lau and you know you you talk about guys that had different personalities. And that's why they call us the bronx zoo because we're crazy guys or not team but it was so much fun but during the ball game. This guy took total. I'm being total control of the game. And you knew when a pitcher was out there. And you do where they was drawn to thurman thurman knew exactly how to pitch every single batter and he knew every and thermal was type guy that he knew that if a pitcher was having a problem he'll go out there and he knew that if a pitcher was getting down on himself will go out there and make the pitch you laugh and you know and relaxed the pitcher but he knew how to take care of the staff. And that's what that's why his asked you for that pitching staff. That's why it was so good. Well we'll tell you one thing. One of the things. I love about this book. Is it lends itself to great stories. And you certainly do that in this book. And of course thurman as rough as he could be on the edges. He was a guy that likes to pull a prank. And you talk about some of them. Tell me about the west point game because every season the yankees would you know. Go up to west point and play an exhibition game. Oh that was so much fun. When we went up to west point that was one of our major We had we always have an off day and we always had the west point trip and it was so much fun. And i'm never gonna forget. We used to eat. Go up early. We used to eat with the pleads Those are the first year guys and we used to sit down and these guys could never talk and they couldn't even look at us and they would you. would they eat. They used to have to eat down and watch and look at the plate. And but after you know we used to go eat Down with the plates and stuff. They have gigantic swimming pool. Where all these guys Used to train and used to you know Swim all the time and had all day training exercises up there. But i'm never gonna forget. It was thurman it was catfish. And i think it was sparky in a couple of other guys. And i'm never gonna forget. They went up to the top and they had their uniform on and they jumped from the top of the It was like a ceiling. It was like maybe twenty five thirty feet above the and they jumped. It was like jumping over jumping. Like maybe over the You know George washington bridge is it. Seems like it was at high or jumping over the san francisco Bridge and it was so much fun you know. I mean they had. We had so much fun. It's so much fun on the staff and and the team and and And that's why people wrote so many crazy things about us because we did so many crazy things as a team but that's why the team And people didn't realize we used to have people didn't know this but we have a fight every single day in the clubhouse before the game and the game we played like Magicians you know. I mean it was. It was unbelievable. And and that's why we're so good We had without on the field. We're just loses goose and that's why we had such a great team. Why did munson intentionally drive a golf cart into the lake. Because i think he had a bad shot and him in panella and they did these things and they when all the way i'm never gonna forget We it was a golf tournament and They were behind us and Thurman hit a ball and and Maybe maybe had a couple of Extra drinks and and had a little bit extra fun and They went down a hill and They had the golf cart directly in and it went right over the bunker when it directly into the lake. And it's and i think to this day that golf course is still in that Pond and it was probably about six or seven feet. And you should see these guys That where does anything. And they came out on the golf carts and the golf cart sinking like that and they lost clubs and It was it was just. I mean it was crazy. Things like that and i remember that the The pro had to Did anything and the The pro at the get him. A whole new set of clubs. But that's what we did and that was so much fun. Where did his love for aviation come from because it was so out of character to the person most people saw and i never quite understood at being a pilot myself. I was always concerned. Because i knew he had a you know a full-time job. That was going to probably not allow him to be the proficient pilot that you need to be especially when you're flying citation jet you know what we really didn't know too much about his flying you know. I mean he really never talked about it much. We used to see him. Come to the ballpark and you always had a ba. Asian magazines and always read them. And i'm not going to forget when he bought his first airplane and he used to go back During the off season and you should take flying lessons but you never brought it up that much. I mean we really never knew about it. We really never knew about his flying to actually on that day when he flew well when he went back to canton and And had that off-day bad he was up there with his pilots and And the crash happen and But endeavor brought it up me being so close to him. I knew that he did go back once in a while to go fly. I'd do during the all-season daddy would take lessons. But he never. I mean never brought it up that much but thurman always kept a lot of stuff and people didn't know how you know strongly was in business and he was a He enjoyed buying property. Nobody knew about that. And i didn't know too much about that. I knew that he enjoyed business. And i knew he had some property but he never he. He was more of an introvert when it came to stuff like that. Yeah it was august. The second one thousand nine hundred seventy nine at the crash happened and i remember where i was. I was getting ready to do. A broadcast and anchor is a sports television anchor. And i just kind of shook my head because being a pilot i wanted to know what the reason was but i thought your comment was insightful. Own life was taken out of me like a ghost came into my stomach and took my heart out and left. It stunned me so much. I felt completely empty. And i can imagine that affect was probably something felt by everybody on that team as teammates and everybody. Well you know he was my brother. He was a brother to everybody and He was a leader or not team. And all of sudden. I mean you see him as a game and then all of a sudden you know you don't see him anymore and you know and he passed away in a crash where number one. It shouldn't have happened number one. He should not have. You know to be honest with you. He should not go back to candy. He used to go back to candidacy. Diana all the time and he was a family man but you know he went up and The thing happened and even to this day. I mean when you think about it you know. Why did he do that why what happened. You know. we shouldn't have happened. it shouldn't have happened. And you just think about it and you know and you know they just it just killed everybody you know and unfortunately you know it did happen You know and you know it just just ripped heart out when that happened in. Even to this day we could think about this and Just like he's talking to me about this and you'd be in politics and Why did it happen. I don't know we only have about ninety seconds left. So what do you want people to take away from this book ron. I won't people to take away that the captain was the greatest one of the best catchers that ever played the game of baseball He led the yankees back onto a winning winning atmosphere He had respect on and off the field from the players to the fans and what he did for the game of baseball. And what he did for the new york yankees. He broke back the dynasty that the team was lacking for many many years. And i told his wife diana who. I was extremely close to that. I'm going to do everything. I can to bring him to become a Hopefully into the hall of fame where he desert. Well i wanna thank you for writing this book as well and i hope will check it out because it's a fascinating read. Not only for what he did in baseball. And of course some of the high jinks but also the person that he was as well. He was not refined. I think we all can say that. But he was a man that believed in his craft and he showed it on the field. Thank you very much. Ron take care of yourself. Thank you very much and people by the book. Because you'll love it. Ron bloomberg with us again ronn eight seasons in the major leagues with the new york yankees and also the chicago white sox and twice.

Larkin joins us on sports byline usa. I'm happy to say. He is a member of the baseball hall of fame after playing his entire nineteen year career with the cincinnati reds. Twelve times he was an all star and also a national league. Mvp very e- you grew up in the city of cincinnati. So take me back there as a kid growing up and tell me a little bit about what you saw the cincinnati reds back when you were a kid well when i was a kid it was in the day of the big red machine so everyone in cincinnati growing up in cincinnati wanted to be a member of that team that was just a tremendous amount of pride in cincinnati and there was a top going around about how sandlot baseball how growing up in cincinnati automatically gave us edge. Because we had such a good team On the field professionally and i think a lot of kids really bought into that and a lot of coaches really bought into that. So i think our little league or are young amateur league Baseball teams were really strong. We did really well. We've got a lot of good coaching. A lot of intensive coaching some of the members of the teams are part of the community and We could really identify with those players. So i grew up in cincinnati wanting to be a member of the big red machine with the willingness and understanding that if indeed was able to to be part of that i was gonna also have the responsibility of getting back much like those guys when i was a kid. Joe morgan is a friend of mine. And we've had a chance to talk over the years about what it was like in cincinnati with the big red machine and sparky anderson dave concepcion and johnny bench. All of those types of players. And i came away from listening to joe morgan that there was something collectively about those guys about not only the way they played the game but the way they felt about each other the whole demeanor of the cincinnati reds. During that. ara. Can you help me put my finger on what that demeanor was that image was of the reds. I thought it was. It was certainly something special. You mentioned earlier about Them being members of the of the community. I thought that as a player. But when i got a chance to actually Be part of the organization Those veteran players really reached out to me. I was a twenty two year old kid from cincinnati and Trying to take david concepcion job at the time and those guys really welcome to me Specifically davey davey really welcome in. Cincinnati helped me with my baseball on the field. Helped me off the field At the time. I was just beginning to learn how to speak spanish. He took me in his family. And it really helped. Try to teach me The language and the culture He really meant toward me as well. it Tony perez got so many So many life lessons from guys on that team just because they were good people and they played the game. The right way i remember Another mentor of mine but he built third baseman. Gave me so many different things to think about mentally you know as well as physically but this was a collective group of really good guys and guys that play the game the right way and You know i mark. That team is a team of Conscious socially responsible players they gave back and Growing up and seeing that and then becoming a member of that team You know that was just a tremendous honor you dr archbishop moeller high school in cincinnati for anybody that knows anything about sports that is a high school in cincinnati that turned out some great football talent and i know that in ohio they like to keep their athletes at home no matter what the sport is so how did bury larkin. Ever get out of the state of ohio and end up at the university of michigan. Well pretty simple. I did not get recruited by ohio state. So that was. That was one reason why i never made the stop in columbus Matter of fact another friend of mine who was a player of the year He was from worthington. Ohio casey close. Who is there eater and my agent now but he growing up in worthington. Ohio not get recruited by ohio state. Either he and. I were college roommates at the university of michigan so whenever we did come south of the border and Play ohio state. we had a little extra incentive to do well. We did do well against them. But you know you're right People in cincinnati and people in ohio are very proud of their own and one keep them in the house and people could not understand. Why in the world i would go To the dark side up north rented a dark side. Because i didn't recruit meal. I might point out that they have retired. Your number number. Sixteen up there. And how long did you spend the minor leagues. Then berry i was there for about a year. I got drafting. Eighty five and eighty six. I got called up and never went back to the minor leagues. Well the reason why i asked that is that i thought it was a short period of time What was it that allowed you to have the maturity to only spend a short time in the minor leagues and be able to make it so successfully in the major leagues. Was there something along. The way was somebody that took you underneath their wing. That helped mentor. You through that early part of your career atlanta big league I mentioned some of those guys. Dave parker era davis. Eric davis was really instrumental. Buddy bell was really my own field a mentor. He was third baseman at the time. but i think the reason that i had some success early in the big leagues as because i decided to go to college. Because i didn't think. I did get drafted out of high school by the reds in the second round i didn't feel like i was Physically or mentally ready to go on of be out on my own and be a professional. So i wanted to go to school And i'm glad i did. Because it was a controlled environment and it was a place where i could really kind of spread my wings and find out who i was and i wanted to be as a person and You know i think that maturity. Those three years. I spent at michigan Helped me mature as an individual. And then once i did sign and there were certainly some great people in the organization. But you know buddy bell on the field rose and my first manager tony. Pres- david concepcion. Eric davis day parker. I can continue to go on but there's a lot of guys that really helped me early in my career and showed me how to do it the right way. Eric davis my first year in the big leagues didn't really know me but invited me in the offseason. They go out to la and work out with him. And i thought we were going to go out to la and go to the clubs and go. Watch the lakers game and all that kind of stuff. Well eight o'clock the next morning. I'm out running a hill and going. Oh my goodness is this what it takes to make it in the big leagues and that was in the off season and that was a week and a half after the season ended so I found out early in my playing career professional career that is there's no easy way and there's no shortcuts and appreciative of that. If there are two words in my mind that described barry larkin and his playing career. It would be consistency and discipline. You were certainly consistent as as a shortstop but the discipline came. I thought with your hitting it. It's interesting you had one season in which you led all major leaguers by striking out only twenty four times and five hundred eighty eight bats. Where did that discipline and consistency. Come from because that's an amazing number. Only twenty four times in five hundred and eighty eight at bats. Well i you know. I i really striking out. Personally i didn't want to strike out and I'm sure those twenty four times five hundred however many. I bet i wasn't happy about striking out. I just made it a a personal a personal thing with myself in the striking out now. same make an era My throwing years we're okay but fielding era. I felt like if. I got a chance to get my glove on the ball than i should. At least be able to catch it. And so i just made it a. I just was determined mentally. He talked about the discipline. I i think that's just something that i just felt. I was very passionate about and wanted to make sure that it did not happen or in a more positive note. I wanted to make sure that. Put the ball in play. That's kinda how i try to play my career and live my life More on the positive side. As opposed what i want to do with the posted what. I do not want to think the minute that i started thinking about. Don't strike out. That's the first thing that i would do is striking out. So i tried to limit the buddy bell Lesson right there. Don't tell yourself what not to do yourself what you're going to do and and do what you say you're going to do so i you know i just feel so pleased as a person and as a player to have those guys and come up the time i did because they were so instrumental in my adult. That's one of the things that impressed me. Awful lot is the fact that you never tried to do more with a pitch than what you could do with it now. You hit one hundred ninety. Eight home runs but you also had power. When you needed power. You became the first shortstop every hit five home runs in the span of two consecutive games. Did you look for pitches to be able to drive the ball. Or how did you look upon power hitting you know power hitting for me was. It was really relative to where i was hitting the lineup. Depending on the situation in the game I also hit thirty home runs. But i never considered myself a home run hitter. You know. I just felt like there were certain times where i could look for a pitch in a particular zone. I'm thinking i have to go back to the tutelage and some of the help that i got from some of the players tony perez speaking about hitting and runs in scoring position Or hitting in this particular account. When i was ahead and account he taught me about the zoning in to where i liked to have the ball and i used to break the hitting zone up into four different zones and it would tell me as As the count would build against me my zone would get bigger as the count grew in my favor mice by zone. We'll get much smaller. And i particular pitch situation so i just really took that mental approach to hitting in A couple of years It really turns out. Good for me and Those two games. You mentioned the five home runs. I just remember. I just remember floating around the bases going. This can't be happening. But i believe that was the hit. Thirty thirty three home runs so It just happened to. It just happened to be a year where i got thirty three doubles that happened to get elevated and got over the wall that year barry larkin with us a member of the baseball hall of fame entire nineteen career with the cincinnati reds.

Forty-five this is america's sports talk show sports byline usa. Here's ron bar barry larkin. His joins us on sports byron usa. I mentioned the break about going to the world series that was in one thousand nine hundred ninety world series which the cincinnati reds are one by beating the oakland a.'s and that was a very interesting world series. I was a young sportscaster. And i went out Since i am here in san francisco to cover that world series and and everybody was saying well as we'll take it in four they'll take it in five. Tell me how the reds approach that world series. I think we were young enough that that time to not really be concerned with anything. I remember us talking and watching the press clippings and watching how teams being covered. We saw that. We didn't have a chance against the pittsburgh pirates. Who had very bonds. And bobby baena and events like and bob in some of the great pitching that they had and then we beat them in six games. And then i remember going into the world series and it being said that We had absolutely no chance against the as and we use that as a motivation. We felt like we went wire to wire that year. Lou pinella was our was our manager for the first time He comes over to cincinnati address team in the first day and he says he doesn't like losing he doesn't accept losing that he's not going to lose And that that really stuck with the team. We had some really vivacious personalities on the team at year with the nasty boys rob dibble and norm. Charlton and randy myers with some great Great individual players air davis was absolute fire that year. Jose rio incredible pitcher that year. Tom brown and a perfect game. I don't. I'm not sure. I don't think it was that year. But he had a perfect game under his belt. We had been in some really Rating situations. We have some great players at that time but we were all fairly young and remember us using the the media. Talk about that fact that we had no chance To kind of motivate us and lou pinella would put a step up on the board and this is what they're saying about to you guys have no chance this is going to be a easy cakewalk for Could open as and it was just all that we just heard that time and time and time again we really use it as a rally crack. No one believes in us. Let's go out there and get this done and you know what we expected. Go out there. And win. And when eric davis that first home run in game one of the world series was really opened up the door. We get knocked down. Yeah that's i thought that game one really set the tempo and the style for that whole world series and you mentioned about the home. Run from eric davis i think at that point for the oakland a.'s. It put a big doubt in their mind and they never recovered from. Did you guys sense that in the series that early in the series that all of a sudden they were back on their heels. So we didn't we didn't since then you know i think anytime you're in the in in battle you're not really concerned with anything other than that next pitch and i think that's really the reason why we one is because we were so focused on what we were trying to do as a team. I remember guys saying all right. That's one game. But we've got to try to win the next pitch. We've got to try to win the next album. We've gotta try to win the next ground ball. And that's how that's how. I think how we got through the season. We really spent a lot of time on the really the real particulars of the game as opposed to taking things for granted. I remember lou. Pinella losing his mind if we would miss A hit and run or if we miss a sign or if we would miss an assignment And he used once again a used opportunities to teach and he would selectively lose his mind and put on a show for not only the fans but for the players as well to say listen. I'm not accepting the fact that this or that did not happen. We just had so much of that type of focus and concentration going on. I don't think we were too terribly concerned. Or aware of them being back on their heels because once again it was about what we were doing as opposed to what they were not doing. Which game was it. That eric davis crashed into the wall and got hurt so badly that was game. Four of yeah. That was game four and that was actually came up to the line. Drive is playing left. Field and Was at shortstop. And i think he playing center field and it was a thinking. Line drive to left centerfield and they went to catch the ball. Think it was. It was left centerfield and he was down his boss sitting there looking right at him and sauce. Faso's like this isn't good and then in game. four. Also billy hatcher. Who was on fire. I think he had close to six or seven hundred during the world series. He was on absolute he got hit in the hand and broke his hand during that gang. So we were thinking at that time. Oh we made sure that we didn't say much in the in the papers but we certainly thought let let sleeping giants lie. So don't say anything that's going to raleigh those guys but when those two guys went down we were thinking we better win this game because this thing could turn on a dime and thank goodness. We were able to win that last game with jose real kitchen. Most of the game he was absolutely dominant. You know we didn't win that game. We didn't know if he was going to get a chance to come back and pitch if we had to go game seven so It was It was just our time at that time we were playing well and we had a lotta contributions from billion from eric and those guys going down. We were really concerned. Glad we got a dumb when we did a four zero sweep for the cincinnati reds to win the world series championship and a special was. That season was berry. Certainly nineteen ninety-five particularly sweet for you national league. Mvp sixth in batting at three hundred nineteen second in stolen bases with fifty one. You become the first shortstop to win the award. Since mary wills back in nineteen sixty two and the one thing i thought of when you won that award was to bring all the elements of the game hitting stealing defense. All of it together to win the mvp. That's not an easy thing. What is it that means to you. The most to you about that season that you were able to accomplish a pretty good team that year also. We went to the playoffs that year. We got beat up by atlanta that year. You know the individual awards are great. But you know. I thought that that year nineteen ninety ninety five Ninety nine years the years that we had a chance to go to the postseason. Those are really the the years that i remember. Because in the clubhouse broderie was absolutely incredible. You know winning cures a lot of things and it certainly brings people closer together and You know baseball being such a marathon sport having to do it day in and day out and live with guys for six or seven months and see the same people in kind of deal with everyone going through their individual thing but collectively coming together to try to win. There's something special about those years. So ninety five was it was certainly a special year for me individually. But i had some really great for players around me. I think every year that i went out there and did real well you can look at the stats and the guy sitting in front of me and behind me pretty much. Those guys had great years as well and I think anytime. I came up on kevin mitchell or You know a great player. Greg bond or some guy sitting behind me. Eric davis whatever was situation. Comes up in the game. they're gonna wanna piss to me as opposed those guys eric. Are reggie sanders riding. You know just. They had to pick their poison. They decide the pitch to me. And i got a little better quality pitch simply because the guy behind me was. We're going prior. So that's just how it was during my career and You know. I was really lucky. To play with a lot of great players and ninety five was certainly a great season but it was great for a couple of different reasons and one of those reasons because we were able to win. We only have a minute left but when you think back on your long career the time spent in baseball the things you accomplish. The team accomplished as well. Is there a moment in the private moments for barry larkin. That's kind of an etched into your mind that you'll never forget berry. Were there a couple of plays that. I made that That i remember the feeling of wow. That was a pretty awesome play But you know they weren't I don't know if they were on forefront of other people's minds i remember playing atlanta afraid mcgriff. Hit the ball up the middle. I remember thinking. There's no way i'm getting to the ball and then going. Oh my gosh they thing. I know first baseman stretch. And then we get him out at first base and it was a huge play during the gay and the stadium was sold out That was that was incredible. Play i remember hitting the five home runs as well I remember the perfect game scoring the only run in the perfect game. I remember breaking orel. Hershiser street go fifty. Six consecutive scoreless innings You know they were. There are a whole bunch of individual things that i remember but i remember that last play at first base in the nineteen ninety world series when time bessinger goes in the foul territory and catches the ball to clinch the final out of the world series of nineteen. Ninety that for me that probably the vivid memory that i have of being on the field. I wanna thank you very much berry. You deserve to be in the hall of fame and thank you for sharing your memories and thoughts with us on sports byline take care. Thanks for having me. Very larkin hall of famer and deservedly.

This is america sports talk show sports byline usa. Here's rhonda books across my desk and one has come to me that i hope you'll check out it's called sparky and me. And this is a memoir about the legendary. On hall of fame. Baseball manager sparky anderson and danny walled has written this book and he was a good friend of sparky's for thirty two years in for a long time. He was the pr director for the detroit. Tigers dan Tell me about the first time you've ever met sparking. The first time i ever met him was in. Nineteen seventy one. I would just a kid reporter at the detroit news and we had the all star game in detroit and sparking came in. He was the national league manager. That year so i met him and did a story on him. Sunday before that tuesday all star game. And then i didn't see him again until spring training of nineteen seventy-three. I was covering the tigers then and Detroit played in lakeland in cincinnati at the time played in tampa in spring training. And so We hooked up again but then when he came to detroit our friendship just skyrocketed real quickly things fell into place and and we ended up Best friends for thirty two years. What's a special about. This book is is that you did this book sitting around a table of his in california and he died a little bit more than a week after. You had a chance to sit with him. I'm sure as you reflect it and started writing this book. There were a lot of insights that you had about him that maybe you did not have during the course of knowing him. Tell me about what you reflected upon what came forward for you in that reflection. Well the way it happens. Run is carol his wife She called me Toward the end of the week. I went out there on sunday morning and it was on friday friday before she said you know. You'd better come out here as soon as they can. She and her and their three kids and myself. We knew he was very close to dying. And to answer your question when i got I could tell there was something different run. I don't know how to put my finger on it but it was a different feeling and we both felt so good being together not having to go anywhere not having to see people we were just gonna be by ourselves and talk about you know our lives together and and i realize in answer to your question how much he really loved. Life away from the ballpark. He loved people. He was a great people over and it didn't matter. He never judge people by what they did for profession. It was argued. Good person are you good guy and he liked you. There are two stories in this book. That i think really captures. The essence of sparky anderson was in the preface of the book. You start out telling about a request. That sparky made after you had taken him to the airport. There was something missing in his traveling stuff. What was that he He was staying at my house. I and and i was taking them back for him to go back home and He forgot he had a bridge that he lost somehow during the night while he was sleeping and So he didn't have his teeth. And i'll be called me when he got home and he said i left something at your house. Is it okay. i'll bring it to you. Next time i go out there so you better do it fast. He says it's my teeth. You know and I found him on the floor behind the headboard and they had fallen into a pair of socks that he had there so Only sparky could do something like this story. Continues as you go through security. You pick it up from there. Well we're going to. I'm going through security and you know the agents stopped me said what you have over here. I said well you're not gonna believe. This is a pair of teeth or teeth. I should say and And he said who blocked to that. I said my friend and he said what's his name said. George anderson he let me go through and the guy be hand behind me though he heard me say george anderson. He must have been a big baseball fan. Because george anderson is the name of sparky. And i said well these are sparky stays. He wanted to know you could buy them. And of course when you when you gave him the sparky. He said he should've let the guy buy them that way. I said the other story in the book is at the end about a visit that he made to a children's hospital and there was a nurse with a child And that's a sad story but it's a beautiful story. Also sparking started a charity here in detroit and It helps underprivileged kids at children's hospital and henry ford hospital two big hospitals in detroit and while we were going around helping to set it up we read The hospital and a nurse came by and she was carrying this little girl and Sparking says oh. You're pretty little girl. He always liked to tease kids. You know and said to the nursery said. Let me hold her well. The nurse was wearing gloves at the time. Because this was at a time when a medical science didn't know everything about aids and hiv and They were concerned about you. Know com- communicating to healthy people and the nurse tried to explain that to spark and spark he was courteous. He said please let me have the little girl. I wanted to hold her and And so the nurse gave the little girl to sparky and it. It made for wonderful memory beautiful memory sparking for the rest of his life. You know having only met. Casey stengel one time. When i did meet sparky anderson. I thought maybe it was day job. Who word between the two guys was something. yeah I never had the privilege of meeting. Casey i but i worked with a lot of guys who worked with casey and You know the stories are frighteningly close to To each other far said though he said you know when when people would compare him. Writers would do that sometimes. Hey wait. don't don't compare me with casey. There was only one casey. He was the master and And you know he. Obviously casey one more championship. But when you playing what the lineup said he had. I guess be surprising. Danny walled is with us and again. We're talking about his book. Please check it out. It's called spark in me about sparky anderson. They were friends for many many years. And for about nineteen years he was the pr director for the detroit tigers When it came to baseball tell me what his philosophy was about. Playing the game sparky believed this and he would tell us to his teams every spring training. He said you know you guys are going to have spring training now and when we get to the games it's gonna be a little bit different. He said but. I wanna tell you something you said. We're gonna go out to the park and we know we're gonna win. Forty games I'm sorry in sixty games and we're gonna lose sixty games. Other forty two is what we have to worry about. He said. but i'll guarantee you that if you play every game as hard as you can like it's going to be your last game regardless of where you finish up in the first second third doesn't he says if you play as hard as you can. I guarantee you. Your career is finished. You'll never want to go to a ballpark again. And at first. I wondered you know. Why does he say this every year. But i i understand now because once you give it everything. There's no more to give and you should be proud of what you did. That was his philosophy. If you can play as hard as you can. I can't make you hit a home run if you can't hit a home run. I can't make you bunk. Well if you don't know how to bunt but try your hardest. That's that was his basic philosophy. Jon morgan is a good friend of mine. And we had a nice conversation about sparky when he passed away. I had him here on the show. And i asked Joe i said what was the essence of his success. Particularly during those years with the big red machine he said that he understood talent and he respected and therefore he respected us and we went out and played that way. Yeah and i. And i admire joe. Morgan also I think joe hit it right on the head with what he said Sparky really he never expected more out of a person than what a person could give and he could see. Tell you know. Sparky was sparky always downplayed his playing ability. But you know he played in the minor leagues for ten years played one year in the big leagues at a time. When there were only you know sixteen teams in the big leagues. So you know he. He had some talent but he respected talent and so as long as he was getting the most out of of a player if he couldn't give anymore didn't care and i think that's what joe's were talking about He respected a guy. Who were tired. Sparky sparky respected the working man. He loved blue collar. Guys guys who carry lunch buckets to work. He he really identified with them. And that's where. I'm going next if you think about his managerial career. His great success. Cincinnati great success in detroit as well. I don't know that he would have been as comfortable and maybe would have been a successful but as comfortable managing in someplace like say los angeles or new york that because he was a blue collar type of guy and he really related to those types of cities that that was why he had success where he had success. He ended up at too good cities that complemented his personality in his personality. Complimented the cities and You know it's interesting because a lot of people especially when steinbrenner was going through managers you know like a deck of cards There was a lot of talk. You know that one day sparking is gonna get the call from george you know and You know. I don't know what would have happened there. I mean it would have been interesting. But sparky i think round you. Make a good point where the city's kind of match where he was supposed to be. How did he deal with adversity. You mean like on the field adversity well both personally and on the field as well. Sparky had had an amazing gift that wants something was over whether it was an event or whether it was something like death to his parents he grieved but he had this ability to keep pushing forward. And and and it's hard to explain but he never let himself become stationary in adversity. Because if you've stayed stationary you're not getting out of it. So he would tackle something new whenever he ran into a piece of adversity whether on the field off the field. And what's your favorite baseball story from. Sparky the favorite one. You know. i liked the the john. Row of the The funny story. He was a practical joker in a way and he would he would Ah i mentioned this one. In the book. We were playing down in lakeland night game with the reds and he had been with us a few years. But bernie stole. I don't know if you know bernie stove. He was a longtime equipment guy from From the reds. And i think the game started at seven o'clock in tampa was only a little ways away so they didn't get there until around. You know six fifteen. Sometimes six thirty. Everybody got off the cincinnati bus and they were going into the stadium. Locker room is down the right field line and we spark had me arrange with with the police on it. We had a pretty good relationship. We had to police officer standing at either side of the players. Infants in downright field and sparky got behind one of them. And i got the other one. And so bernie didn't see coming and we told the police officers you know doing we said. Stop this guy. And tell these under arrest. And so as soon as bernie started coming into the area to get in the clubhouse i nudged wanna the cops and i said this guy stopped me said are you mr bernie stowe. He said yeah he said. Well you're gonna have to come with us You can positively identified for the robbery of a seven eleven store. He said what are you talking about. He said i'm with the reds. You know we were laughing behind the scenes. And then we jumped out and Bernie bernie laughs sparky lab. He was a practical joker a lot of times. What do you think his legacy ultimately. Is dan two things number one his is and i say this and i know i'm right about this. Nobody sweat more about every w he got It didn't matter. I never saw him any differently. If we were in first place pennant race store the entity. Or we're gonna be finishing fourth or fifth. He managed every game hard the same way regardless of the situation so he'll be remembered for his industry but more importantly than that he will his legacy is going to be the goodness that he passed onto people. He always found time to talk to kids how he did that. It was it was amazing He he loved kids. He loved people and as long as they were courteous to him he could be over courteous yesterday to. What would you like the reader to take away from the book. I'd like for people to understand the goodness in this man's heart and his love for baseball sparking. First of all for baseball sparking enjoyed the period of the game he He didn't like as a game started going. You know got more corporate and marketing and gimmicky and all that sort of thing. He didn't particularly liked it. But he liked the purity of the game but his his feeling toward people To me i impressed me more than anything else about the man and he always looked somebody on the i whether he knew he didn't if he found out a person's name he was unashamed to call him by his name. He was a good man. Dan i wanna thank you very much. And congratulations on this book back. Join us again on sports. Byline anytime ryan. Thank you so much and good luck to.

Charlie rose is a great interviewer and what i've tried to do. The years is kind of bring out in athletes. The human side. Because i've always felt that the fans the listeners out there they can better relate to the human side of athletes and then they can the professional side. I can't hit a ninety. Five mile hour fastball. And most people out there can as well. But i think they can always relate to the thing that is human about athletes throw. Bailey is standing by to kick things off.

This is america's sports talk show sports byline usa. Here's ron bar. Nice to catch up with thorough bailey. He played in the nba for twelve seasons with the utah jazz. In the minnesota timberwolves also played overseas as well but had a great career. Carolina state north carolina state where he played for jimmy v. and of course everybody remembers that. Ncwa championship team back in. Nineteen eighty-three thorough. I wanna take you back to our home area. Which was the washington. dc area. The one thing. I remember about that area in the summertime is that anna anacostia and roosevelt high school. They had pretty darn good summer league games there. They there's ban they. Did you know that was during the time when i will. I really wasn't end the basketball until i was thirteen. Fourteen years old. But i watson watched some of those guys attended some of those tournaments and stuff and Some i mean you talk about talent in those areas that came out of their Some great memories and matha high school was the real powerhouse in the washington. Dc area wasn't it. it was a real powerhouse. And i i you know playing with two guys in college too low and derrick wittenberg who came from matha Remember bladensburg high school. My high school. Scrimmaging them Like a preseason scrimmage. They came over and they beat us by sixty five points and they practiced they had a full two hour practice right after they had beaten us and it was unbelievable to watch. Let me take you back to the summer games. Because i think there is something special about city basketball during the summer when in washington. Dc it could be ninety five degrees and ninety five percent relative humidity. The sun is setting. And you got ten guys on blacktop. Five skins five shirts going at it. Tell me a little bit about what those games feel like. Well you know they. They feel like one. Everybody in the community turns out And it's just it's kind of indescribable especially being kind of out in in salt lake and and the way basketball has kind of evolved now. Because that's where the talent was. I mean there's still legendary stories of guys who played in in the community. You knew they were good enough to play in the league someday but their legend lives on even more than some of the guys who made it but You always just could not wait to you. Know for the sun to go down sometimes and have those games. I remember a little area called. Melvin crap sat not too far from where i saw. moses malone playing a game it was just unbelievable just some great member some great players and great legacies made and those kind of games you know you bring up a very interesting point. There were a lot of players. I've talked to certainly a lot of the people that played in the inner city and then went on to play in the nba. But there were a lot of guys that were playground legends. That did not make it. I mean i think somebody in new york like helicopter. Herman and they had such great playground reps but they never made it and i remember. I asked out adults this question once. I said why. Why didn't some of these guys make it into pro basketball. And he said something to me and maybe you can help. Explain the thorough. He said they couldn't play system basketball. Yeah i think that's that's dead on accurate You have guys that in. That situation is really no structure. It's really you know out there to showcase my talent. I'm gonna pick do pretty much all of its shots. it's not a structured system I think a lot of those kids. That's really all. They had educational wise. They were on the level where they they could really go to a big time school But you know they enjoyed that spotlight and limelight from that side of the ball in the playground. And that's really. I mean a lot of them weren't really looking for anything more than that. Because you know that was their highlight. That was where they got all the attention and You know some of the other kids that may not have been as good individually Were more catered to a structured system. But if you look at prince george's county if you really look at the statistics there have been more professional basketball players per capita. Come out of that county. I think that anywhere else. Tell me about the first time you ever met jim valvano. Wow i met jumbo valvano. We had a bunch of guys who would just ticked off because no one sloan had left Especially guys who were recruited by myself. Sidney lowe derrick wittenberg. We were trying to decide whether the go cup song whether leave school whether the day so all these emotions going on and you know the school obviously is trying to find somebody to replace him. He comes on wait. Never heard of him before He sets us down and he really barely hear their attention introduced himself and he basically said guys. I know i'm going to win. The national championships says just like that and before it was all he had our because he basically promised us. It wasn't a day that was going to go by that. We weren't gonna talk about the ultimate goal which is a national championship. And if we if we help paint that picture with them that we would get there we would get there. And that's what really got me. This guy was. He was one of the world's best motivators on the to coach. But he could get you to believe that you were champion. That's what he did with us. You know. I always say about kids. Going to college for educations. But i've often said it's the opportunity to play a sport if they happened to be an athlete or the person that recruits them of the head. Coach there tell me about that connection between an eighteen nineteen twenty year old kid and how important that head. Coaching connection is well several types of education. Obviously there's a formal on but there's a there's stuff that you can't learn anywhere but from those type of leaders who teach you that and when you make that connection with the coach who gets you because his job really is on the communication side if you can learn because everyone can't be motivated and communicated with on the same level you have to know your players individually to know what how to motivate them how to do to get them to do what you ask them to do How to create leaders from that pack how to create guys who are followers who are going to be leaders in the future Jim bob analyst at the master of being able to do that And when you connected with him you connect with them on a player coach level you connected with him on a friend level even the father figure level where you had this you you feel comfortable walking into his office talking to him about it. Developed a relationship with him like a coach like that. You've got some special thorough. Is it important to be able to push the right buttons at the right time on a kid and particularly because they are so young and still developing maybe an attitude as well as their talents absolutely and even for coach via was a little tough because he didn't recruit so you know it makes the task a little bit more difficult And so it it it does make it easier when you have a young guy young kid who's coming out of high school and you're trying to get them to buy into a system trying to get him to grow up and be a young man get to class get his degree. Talk to them about how important education is but also your job and winning basketball games coach And and they're you know they're it's rare when you can find a coach you can do all of that on a consistent basis especially when it comes to winning 'cause times the bottom line is you got to win to keep your job as a coach certainly one of the special times in college basketball. Nineteen eighty-three when you guys win. The nc aa championship were the key moments during that season. That the team may be have gone one direction or another key moment won t moment for us was. We're trying to establish ourselves in the during the season playing Already right games and wittenberg pulls up against virginia with a broken foot and we just know that i see them over He was a key piece to what we were hopping on trying to get to the next level. We'll get to the tournament. It's the acc tournament so when he went down. I think a lot of us thought that oh boy is downhill from here. But what happened. Was you have a great leader. Jimmy v. who goes to a rental charles says okay. This is where you grow up this way. We need to go to. Ernie myers a freshman. And say you got to step into the spot and you can't play like a freshman So once those guys step into those roles and and guys like terry gannon Matured and then dirk wittenberg came back and we were a lot better team because these guys have matured and step down. They knew roles like wittenberg came and seamlessly And so we had a nice collection of guys who who got it. We love each other. We were special team. They weren't really talking about us in the paper. They were talking about the blue and white team with michael jordan james worthy and sam perkins bradbury. But we we would fly under the radar. We only have a minute before we have to break. Here i it. Would it be correct to say. He challenged your pride and that was really an important thing to do at that time. Well you have to be challenged challenged really to learn and to get better. You got to go through those difficult times and and you have to question yourself sometime so He did challenges. And that's the only way you can be a champion if you're talented team like you said that we beat everybody expected them to win. They really have a challenge because it was so much expectation. But you know for us to get there. We have to be talented every single night. Not only an outstanding player but also a very interesting Persons broadcasts analyst for the utah jazz. And we're going to talk about his off court interest as well.

This is america's sports talk show sports byline usa. Here's ron bar. Thorough bailey has joined us on sports byline. Usa played in the nba for twelve years with the utah. Jazz in the minnesota timberwolves. I read something in your bio that kind of made me smile a little bit thorough and that was that the utah jazz drafted you not only for your capabilities and and your ability to play basketball but for your character and you don't hear that too often when it comes to an explanation about why you drafted one player or another. What was it that you did in those those negative years. That really caught their attention in that area. Well i don't know if. I consider myself a great player in college i mean i was. I play my role. And i did well with a group of guys who who understood what we needed to do to win. So i don't. I wasn't going to the top. I don't think seven or eight players coming out of college that year I think when the national championship obviously made my stock go up. And i did play well but when you have a team looking at you like the utah jazz and you look at other teams and how they're situated in their cities the jazz a community team. They're not they're not part of a big metropolis has several other professional sports. So they look for guys who can come in and not just affect the team and win but apple positive effect on the community And not the other teams didn't but the jazz. I think that was struggling in both the community and waiting they were looking for that combination. So those kind of things. I tried to exemplify in college coach. V really cute on us to you know to really not just about ourselves and so it was nice. It was nice to hear that from the jazz. It wasn't just for my skills. Because i'm not sure if only for that. I would have been drafted at high. Let me backtrack to that Nc double a championship game. For just a second as i watched that game and of course the ultimate outcome and jimmy v. and everything after the horn went off And knowing that you're gonna be with me. I wondered what he said to you in the locker room. Meaning the team collectively before that game. He set you guys up for that game. Well what had really done with. He said america headset set the media because he talked about a hole in the ball. We may all the ball. The next tuesday. I think everyone thought that because of that louisville houston game. That was just a slam fest that we could not run with that team that we would just hold the ball. It wasn't a clock shot clock so we could just you know run the carolina four corners that we got a nice lead and we got the lottery man. He's shut that door and he says if you think we're going to hold this you know a couple of expletives ball you guys you gotta be you're gonna get nuts so we're gonna we're gonna run with them. We're gonna come out. We're going to run and play our game and we were. We were stoked stokes because we knew that if we get we knew that they thought that we were going to hold a basketball. So won't be came out. I got the. I don copper immense shot. They will shock because they're the team that dumped a lot And coach said you know what if we can keep them from dunkin. We can get more dunks than they get. We got a good chance of winning this game so we got to. They got one that was all she wrote but That was the strategy was really to try to match what they had and and just come out and play our game. What did he say at the end of the game in the locker room guys. Well i know he. He was a little peed derrick wittenberg because they had planned out there. Yeah we won each stage anti-government assertain spot on the court to hug each other. I and of course only wanted to ask a championship and he ran out. And derrick wittenberg wasn't there he was running around trying to find somebody to hug ended up jumping onto a pile but he was so proud of us. He went back to the original meeting. We had about his dream about never quitting. That's why his legacy is about never ever giving up because he carried that right into cancer and trying to trying to fight that and And like i say actually grown because of it and so much money has been given to. You know the trying to cure that disease but he he was just an amazing guy. He was amazing guy. He just tried to keep us motivated. But after that game he was really telling us how proud he was. Awesome and how we help to paint that picture of winning a championship. You know listening to you talk about your team in the championship. It makes me wonder how difficult it was for you in the nba. All of a sudden to come into a profession where individuality was. Probably the you know the the orientation rather than the team concept that you found in college. Was that something that was a little bit. Jarring to you thorough. Well you have to be prepared for that. I think As a as a college kid coming out of that kind of system into the pros you taking the best of the best and every player has something that got him into the league that play different roles have to change their mentality. So i had to get used to the business basketball and some of the individuality earning your spot near role and your place But the jazz were organization. That really filled today are different from just from a lot of other teams because the only way they can really win is with that team mentality. It never had one two or three all star. They don't even in the john. Stockton malone era. It took a group of guys to win. So that transition wasn't that bad come into the jazz because their teams have been built that way But other teams like the temple walls. it was kind of a struggle with what you're used to. But you really have to come to that right away. Aside from the money that's available to the players today. How comfortable with thorough bailey. Feel about playing the type of basketball that you see in the nba today. I think you know it has to be an adjustment but obviously you could get there. I mean if you're you're one of the chosen few you find a way to to get it down and figure it out. Based on your talent and skill i was a small forward coming into the league at six eleven I also was a made my career coming off the bench and reason. I did that because there were other guys who asked to that did want to be taught starting with it not going to accept anything less. They were high draft. Pick out there. You asked me to come up with dance. But i was willing to take that role but i knew that was going to get started minutes and it wasn't about starting to me. It was about finishing. So yeah i could adjust i think With the mentality. I have now and and with some of the skills i had back then the small forward they will to post up smaller guys and take bigger guys out. Yeah i could adjust very well you know. I think that's why you've been so successful after your career is over with because you've got the right attitude and be. You've always been adaptable. And not everybody. Is that way. They they see playing basketball as the begin all and end all were able to transition to being an actor also a singer and songwriter. Tell me about the latter. Where could where does your interest in writings and music come from well. Actually the came before basketball I was always involved in music and school and ensure it's always loved to sing and so that my love for that came before basketball just started growing so fast that i had to put that to some some years but I've never lost a love for mae. I came in high school. I did a little bit in college so always been. We've always been raised. We were always raised his kids to be not put all of our eggs in one basket and that meant when my nba career was coming. And i i had plans. So i i wanted to leave the game before i was forced out because i knew i had things to do. I wanted to get more into my motivational speaking Use my communications education but music and acting was has all been just a part of who i am and because my basketball career. Obviously it wasn't able to do a lot of it. But now i get to use those things post basketball as part of my My occupation we've got about ninety seconds left. And i see one of the stops internationally for you as in greece and i've had a couple of my friends that have played over there. Who told me that. They made more money from the coins thrown on the court than they did from what they were getting paid. You had something to catch them with. They were coming at you really fast if you beat a team on the road and you have to drag that tunnel this like this Accordion tunnel out. So you can run from the bench into the tunnel to the locker room because they were throwing these what they call back then drachmas announced its euro whatever it is but man they were hurling things at you and That was an awakening in the basketball sense. Because you had to really adjust to Not just what fans may over there. I mean that was overly fanatic about basketball over there but a great experience in greece and italy. I wouldn't trade them for the world but it was That was something every single night. Based on the fans being overly involved in the game in about twenty seconds any particular moment. Ingrained in your thorough. Bailey's mind forever. That will never forget about basketball. Yeah i have to do the national championship. I mean it's thirty years and just a special moment. That will always be special and the way we want. It was really special and people. I think that remember that no that we did something that That was truly cinderella story with a great man and has a great legacy. Things will always live on forever there. I wanna thank you very much. I have thoroughly enjoyed this conversation. I look forward to the next time we get together. Thank you my friend. Take care all right.

This is america sports talk show sports byline usa. Here's rhonda nichols joins us sports byline and i'm happy to say that hank is now a member of the basketball hall of fame. He's been voted any served as ncwa national officiating coordinator. Men's basketball for twenty years and during that time as coordinator he wrote most of the language on officiating and he knew what he was talking about because he refereed in the atlantic and the acc and the big east conference's and he also officiated a record six ncwa men's basketball championship games in aa final fours and he was also the first official to work the nc double a. And the championship basketball finals in the same year. Hank i know you've been elected to other hall of fame's but i would assume that the the big one. The basketball hall of fame is the one that means an awful lot to you. Well it's extra. It's the ultimate Honor you can get in basketball. And i've just first of all. I was flabbergasted. I certainly Enjoy enjoying the ride of being hall of famer now with all the guys that are Wonderful players and coaches that have been in there and former That are in there. Just thrilled to death. Tell me a little bit about your involvement in basketball. How you got involved because you were a baseball player on scholarship at villanova well. I was also basketball player. You know growing up as a eight or nine year. Old and at my town of agra foster york basketball was a n baseball. We're both sports as well as football and There was an awful lot of competitive spirit about the sports in basketball in particular all over western new york with the very knowledgeable people Good players and it was just kind of natural for me to be involved with basketball as well as baseball. Why is it that you gravitated to the officiating side. Well it's a pretty easy explanation. I was going to be the next John wooden of coaching and i was coaching in high school. Sales high school in lockport new york and My third year there my team went to and seventeen and i immediately became a good rep. Take me back to the early days of you officiating basketball. What kind of official were you like. What was it that you saw about the game. That kind of appeal to you as an official well once i once i was out of coaching i wanted to stay with the game. I was still single at the time. Playing ball a couple of nights a week and there were nights where there was nothing going on and my brother said well. We ought to go take the test to a high school ref because these guys are not good. And we could do under the name madeira. And so i took the test and it was something to do on an act night at stay with the game. It's just started out with junior high and jv games and stuff and kinda just went from there. One of the things that i do know and i hear the fan. Say this about the athletes. Well you know. I could play that game well. You can't play the game if you could you'd be playing it and you'd be paid for it and a lot of people say the same thing about officials but when you got on the floor and actually had the striped shirt and the whistle around your neck. What did you see about the game that you didn't see from either watching it on television or being at a game and watching it as a fan. Well i'm not sure. I could put it in terms of As you put it it was a matter of being part of the game was the the thrill for me and having been a player and a coach and now i'm refereeing. I had a feel for putting it all together. I knew how the players like to play and how they liked the rest to be fair. And and and and do the right thing on the court. And i knew the coaches were expecting you to give him a fair shake and so forth and i kind of felt that way about it. That's what was different. That i was involved in this game. Trying to be part of the maestro of getting it done correctly the other thing too and correct me. if. I'm wrong about this hank but everything seems to be a rhythm even officiating getting into that rhythm is that was that a hard thing at first. What did you have to deal with the get into an officiating rhythm of a basketball game. I think it goes back to par to what i just said. Around the having a feel for how the game supposed to go and how the players wanted playing like to play That's the rhythm that you wanted to get into with the flow and and the temperature of the players in the game. That wasn't always possible because game two. They didn't want to play the way they're supposed to and will get to offer. People would be doing things that you didn't think we're right to end. You have to the whistle so sometimes temper and tempo of the game was not good but Most of the time. If you've got the feel for what was going on. Just kinda got in step with what was being played. Refereeing then was just part of that mix it probably wasn't a factor at the high school level as much as it might have been at the college level but i would think that trying to learn to how to deal with distractions in other words. People calling out of the stands. Coaching working coaches working. The officials as well and just the temple of the game are are kind of blocking out distractions a challenge for an official all very very much so. I think that you have to have some experience along the way where hue survived the bullying and you come to a conclusion that they're not really going hang tickles. they're doing. The striped shirt could be anybody. And so once you get to the point where well you know. They're hollered their born. But they really don't know what i'm supposed to be doing and i'm going to do my thing and this let him out. I know you work. The big east conference's as i said those games there and you work games. That had one of the best coaches. And i think he still has his first sweater. You know who. I'm talking about. Lou carnesecca tell me a little bit about lou and his personality and some of the other coaches that that you've worked games for in the things that you remember most about them lou. Kinda second was kind of one One of a kind. He was nervous nervous. All the time always moving and he used to get out past the sideline onto the court directness players and then more the one occasion. I told him he wanted to play to get a number. Otherwise get back by the bench and stay there under the court. Don't get in the game. He was a just a pepperpot. A good guy a competitor talking for jolting his players and occasionally say something to the raft. You know if he was he was a treat though he was fun. The big east conference with the schools that are in that conference. And i think of someplace like a loose school. It didn't have a lot of inner city. Kids did it. Had the new york city kids. I think about mullen i think about jackson being with lou as well did they have a kind of i guess kind of an image game a game that they played in the inner city. Did you see that yeah. They had they had mostly players from new york and in my time refereeing and And the kids have played. They came off the playgrounds in new york. In highschool is in new york they played an upbeat tempo style and they played Going to the basket style and Defensively they would a very aggressive. It was a it was just kind of a An extension of their high school games in their playground games. When they played for st john's they were. They were tough kids and they were good players and they were terrific competitors. How did the big east conference compared to the style of play in the acc officiated. Well when i first started in the acc Was more of a nestle and they didn't like it. Get too rough and so you. You make the adjustment as the referee to you may mesa clamp down on on contact a little quicker that you would Maybe lester with a big five game but That was an adjustment to make not so much in the acc. But when you got back to the big east or big. Five games in the draft the coaches. It'd be passing each other giving directions to the team and It was just like a semi kenny. I saw and you had to really be careful not to call too many fouls because nobody wanted any files including people understand. It was like let him play. Let him play at the. You know as long as there wasn't any blood we had some tough game also in the. Acc had a couple of coaches one dean smith and and dean of course at one time the winningest college basketball coach and the other is coach k. In that conference were they similar in style. Or were they different in personality and style whether completely diametrically opposed to each other at personality style Dean smith was a gentleman type guy in his comments to you. I mean he still work you. But he would work on a different level and he'd never screamer he never holler at you and he would just be subtle and sometimes a little sarcastic remarks you know and like one time when i had a game with the north carolina and they were playing the russians in a preseason game when russia was still russia and they were the best team in europe and maybe in the world an amateur standpoint and before the game these has to me says well. I guess you're gonna just let her take that extra step and travel all over the place and push us around like it did last year and i said well first of all. I'm not going to be the ugly american and penalized for something that they do naturally nearly league with that extra step so you're probably right about that but we're going gonna we're going to let them get have a little leeway with that but we're not gonna give you any leeway with your players on traveling because you've got to get ready for the season so we're gonna call travel pretty tough on your guys because you gotta get ready. He didn't like that too much for the he didn't have much to say after that. What about my well mike. What's more of an aggressive tough Competitor type guy was like if he thought that he could get get to you and get after about a caller. Maybe working for the next call kind of thing. He was topped he. He commanded pretty hard a lot of times. It was it was his nature to be so competitive. You know an ex army guy. West point guy trained by coach night and he. He was tough he he was hard. But you know once. You got a meeting of the minds with with mike at all right. You can only do so much here. Tonight with your cajoling and and roaming on the sideline so he he understood where the guidelines were but he was a great competitor still is you are the national officiating coordinator for men's basketball. For twenty years. You wrote most of the language on officiating. Tell me about the challenge of putting the rules to make the game even fair and competitive. How challenging was that over that period of time. Hank well it was. It was always a challenge in the rules committee meetings. Because it's dominated by coaches. Most of the people on rules committees are coaches and they had a certain Style of play that team played and there were certain rules that would That they would like changed yard or finesse with because of the way that their teams played so it was all the president addresses.

Radio control six zero three two eight three six point six zero. That's the home to talk about anything. You want to six zero three two eight three six one six zero with you in the studio tonight. It's aria angie and funny. And i have been at work all day so i have absolutely nothing in the way of show up I generally don't anyway because of the restrictions of my release some basically allowed to use fox and msnbc for news. I wondered about that. Because i knew there were some restrictions and have you found anything useful on any of those useful or that. You talk about sure but i mean. I haven't really had the chance to do that today. Evidently though a north carolina man was fatally shot by a sheriff's deputy who was executing a search warrant. So that's that's the news today. Police are still killing people doing that this whole week. They've been doing this whole decade. And then some who else have they killed. There is a fifteen year old. Right that got shot in the chest yeah What is that the same one that was going to stab another girl but it got. She had a knife. I i don't know about the whole story. But a new she had a knife. Just saw headlines on that there's also news from msnbc about china being behind another heck as us security. cyber security issues are mounting. So evidently the chinese government to the suppressive. No one is no hacking the united states government. I don't particularly care about that though. Because it's just too governments fighting with each other and i really don't care what the result of that is going to be and i don't really care with the details of it are marta. Tell me on the show that china's like a million times more evil than the united states government. Whether i want to believe it or not. And i just don't really see it. I think that they're both pretty. Evil moore has this weird anti-china thing going on. it's it's very peculiar. I i would agree. The chinese government. I would probably rather be under the jurisdiction of the american government than the chinese government. I mean at least the american government. didn't you know well to people. Shuts in their homes in response to covid. Nineteen that really happened. allegedly. And i don't know i mean it's it's hard to trust any news that comes out of china because it's all going to be underground. The chinese government is going to admit to doing that of course not but they do have concentration camps for like three ish weaker. Muslims then kind of genocide them so i have to agree. The chinese government is a bit more evil than they were. Probably much rather live here. I just think like that's what they're doing to their own people which is horrible but the united states government is doing that to people all over the world. So it's kind of even they're both very evil. I mean mark was like are your organs being harvested. No it's a fair point. They own it right. They are forcefully sterilizing. People and are harvesting. Americans are gonna ever to get organs. That's scary right that's unpleasant. I'm not surprised if we just had. If we just opened this up to free-trade can just sell a kidney if they wanted to then a lot of this would go away but they can't that would mean there will be a lot of companies not making so much money. Yeah unfortunately but anyway we're coming to an end of the mask mandates. That would seem at least here. In new hampshire. The statewide mandate has expired but apparently more liberal publications are calling for stopping outdoor mask mandate saying that it's meaningless political theater. This is from fox news. Which is why they are focusing on it. A trio of stories and left leaning news outlets this week called for either the end of outdoor mask mandates or pleaded with americans to embrace a return to normal life as the coronavirus vaccines continues to be distributed distributed in the millions. Have you noticed that. There has been a decrease and people wearing masks in new hampshire since that ended. I haven't i haven't either. They all still have them on their cars and are in their cars and on. There's on the sidewalk and running and jogging. Well hearing keen. It's still required so the king city ordinance in place so that may be. why but. But you're walpole westmoreland or go to all kinds of places. I'm you know all kinds of places and i see everyone and most of the stores even the gas stations that you go. And they don't say anything but when you go in the clerk has it and the customers have it and you're usually the only one. And of course i take the kids and sir so atlantic staff writer derek thompson called for governments to give an off ramp to normalcy by getting rid of outdoor mask rose. I can't believe outdoor mass girls even exists in the first place. Yeah i just kinda thought. People were doing that to themselves outside. Yeah i i had hoped they were at least here in new hampshire. We were never told you have to wear a mask outdoors. No but kids have to wear them when they play sports. Really whenever they play kids sports out the basketball teams. The soccer teams the Anything that is a league that is ran by some kind of organization. They had to have the masks on. So derek thompson likened people wearing their masks while walking into a restaurant only to take it off as they sat down and proximity to other people in order to eat to. Someone buckling their seat belt as they started driving while they have to take their masks down to eat. That would make sense. I mean that's unavoidable is not like you have to take your seat belt off in order to drive you. Don't but you do have to take your mask down in order to eat at a restaurant. I have officially seeing these people. Who put on their masks in between bites and the pull pitchy. I've seen that too. It's so depressing. That's really just gross to me like i don't know i already don't wanna know they have like your breath just in your mask all day but definitely not your like cheeseburger chewing breath butts so gross directly into some cloth. What plus there's the reality that the more. They touched their mask. They're more. they're spreading germs onto there. Hasn't coconut is so excited about. He is really loving me. he's not bothering me. As more and more of the population vaccinated governments need to give americans and offramp to the post pandemic world ending outdoor mask mandates or at the very least telling people when they can expect outdoor mask. Mandates to lift is a good place to start for a few reasons this has to be like california or something has edward is it. Hasn't okay but it outdoor mask mandates this too so foreign concept to me. Studies have repeatedly shown that outdoor transmission of the virus is exceedingly rare with the only examples being when people are talking loudly in close quarters or a large crowd for a significant length of time thompson. Noted that asking. Excuse me axing outdoor mask rose would also leave more people to wear them indoors where he transmission most likely to occur. I don't know about that. I had covid nineteen definitively lost my sense of smell or taste get tested because there was no point and no one. I work with got sick. So i don't know how transmissible it really is. But not a single person. I came in contact with got covid nineteen result. So the new republic's natalie share mocked massachusetts governor. Charlie baker for instituting an outdoor mask mandate in november in response to a surgeon cases. And said it's ongoing. Ubiquity is meaningless political theater. She acknowledged their use in northeastern blue. Cities had persisted quote as a strong social norms. So these these liberal publications. They're not calling for an end to mask. Mandates they're for into outdoor mask mandate. Yes that's what it sounds like. Which i guess that's still good. But you know sununu let this mask. Mandate in new hampshire expire. He said something to the effect of i would. I would have to pull up to get the exact quote but it was. We don't need a mandate for new hampshire to people to know how to take care of one another and it's like okay but that was true. Two weeks ago to right when you had your mandate in place but he basically admitted that no mandate was necessary. Had never been necessary. Because the people of new hampshire know how to care for one another but then in stop him. Yeah he still had pice yeah. He didn't repeal it. He just had a sudden change of heart. It would seem except he really did it. I heard from vincent that it was really just that they made it to where he had to go along with. Repealing it so he's just putting his name on it right after the fact. That actually didn't have anything to do with them like he didn't like just choose repeal the house or sorry the house in the or whatever of new hampshire. I don't care about politics. It's hard to talk about it correctly but the house people that were like free staters made almost like a fifty percent In their votes so they had to repeal it like he didn't get the chance to to renew it actually wasn't hindlegs vetoing mask mandate. It actually wasn't news like choice. And then he just went along one with the choice incorrect. But i think of the house of representatives to overturn his ability to issue executive orders or something like that but also have the senate and then he's got to sign off on it and it would go back to the house and you know they'd have to override the veto winning it wrong but like he couldn't be too because of the amount of like it was more than fifty percent and that would have been like. Let me get actually like word. Straight with vincent and then i'll report back and it would have taken years six zero three two eight three six one six zero. That's the call.

So i don't want to tell you about anything at the moment because i'm very unprepared and i'm trying to do several things that was like always and just freaking ten hour shifts on not at the top of my game is would expand me. I woke up at eight o'clock this morning as well. And that's that's super weird considering like sleeping until like one in the afternoon many away we in the studio. It's aria angie and bonnie see. I may have even already done that. I'm not sure time we did before. Yeah i did that last night though. Like twice right in the same segment did say their names. Yeah but they pointed out that there are also just now. but let's go to the phones. We got mark calling mark on free. Talk live with your muted on the board of start ever mark. hello girls. It sounds like she talked. live tonight. kmart we're enjoying it. How are you well. Thank you may have your mic a little bit Ntn body are much more clear than you are. So i'm driving down to You know florida. I am currently and florida and as i tried i have plenty of time to think and i just becoming more and more impatient with this judge. Remember it is And the emc take. It's been tied weeks to determine whether or not safe enough to get out we had to You know Listen to one magistrate. Give seven page tortured explanation as to why she felt like he was economically dangerous. Not selected dangerous. The fbi actually did anything about him for five years. My new economically dangerous but now that they have this tenuous and You know coin case affairs that he must stay in jail so that he can't get out to talk to his attorney and actually put a case together to fight it You know the sh she went through Talking about his Pat is world passport. Which is a a novelty item that he bought on the internet suggesting that if he gave it up he would always even be able to buy another. We'll so what anybody who ever gets out on bail. They'd be able to buy a world passport to internetwork hundred if that I'm sure you could write them and get it for cheaper. It's just a piece of paper. And you know i mean so. That's ridiculous. it's it's all ridiculous She said that he was economically dangerous. And he didn't have ties to new hampshire. A guy who's lived in new hampshire for almost twenty years run for governor And you know recently moved. His girlfriend to new hampshire somehow doesn't have ties to new hampshire. Exactly what the ties to new hampshire looked like if in freeman doesn't have them i don't know gets even know the wait You know if he goes up place it's got to be very very queered is to win. He goes and You know when he returns and believe me. I'm the guy who makes the schedule when he leaves. He doesn't like to wait. So this judge just dragging his feet presumably he. I don't know Dragging his feet waiting to make some kind of determination is like to me The magistrates already transparently show. She is a tool of the Prosecution but this julie the same to the judge is beginning to make me believe that the the executive and the judicial inco collusion once again. What would you think anything different. You know i'm. I'm hoping that the judge isn't show for an underlying authoritarian regime. But i'm beginning to think otherwise. I think they're always on the same team. Well the judicial branches but most loved of the branches scrambler People people compare the legislative branch to cockroaches. So i mean it's not. It's not a high bar anything And people trust judges more than they trust other people. And i i i would call myself in that same boat you know. I still believe that judges every once in a while a call a foul foul and call a strike a strike. You know But i i also understand that many judges or prosecutors and have a very difficult time You know giving up that That way of thinking and we're waiting on the judge now to make a decision correct. That's correct. We're waiting for him to determine whether or not he can get out of jail on on or get a bond at all now remember the pedophile police. Union chief in boston got a quarter million dollar bond. That okay So i mean you know. A guy who legitimately danger to society is given a bond because you worked professional courtesy. You know you were to the system But you know a guy who is not even accused of harming anyone is Is brought to jail because he might buy a rubber chicken on the internet. I'm just you know. I'm wondering does anyone. Has anyone done any research on his first name. I don't know this person's name or done any research on this judge. I haven't been able to find anything. I've been on the docket thing that I got for the pacer account. Or whatever and i haven't seen any update about ever since the Appeal was put in has a judgement even been assigned to it yet well. They assigned a case that they signed a date for the court. Case next month as though In be ready for that. They've had five years to prepare and You know they. Fifty thousand pages of discovery The legal game obviously on the point to be able to jump in the vat and obviously the judge will give them time to the permission. That the case has already been scheduled tentatively for i think march of twenty twenty two the reader gadgil. Then yes i don't recall. The exact timeframe has been scheduled. Hey this is the soon as the any of this could possibly happen. It was like spring of twenty twenty two or something. So that's already back. I mean obviously yes. Discovery of fifty sixty thousand pages of evidence. There's no possible way anyone's attorney here could possibly look over that amount of information in the timeframe of may the fourth so yeah mark. How likely do you think it would be that. They would push this as long as they can. And keep him in there until the actual trial in march of twenty twenty two. That seems unlikely. Think they have to make a decision at some point In you know it's it's my opinion just sitting out here. You know coming up with excuses for them Is that they have to let him out. They just the you know they're just always wanna to do with the prosecution says so they're dragging their feet on it ruling which You know they consider it's completely substantiated. She added piece of paper. That can run for. You must stick around. Take care so much for the call tonight. Mark six zero three two eight hundred sixty one sixteen tiktok airwaves.

Brought in a fascinating story. That i i think people are going to enjoy. Yes i found one earlier on. Cnn that said let me go to it. That says did a poor sleep. Nearly doubles risk of sexual dysfunction in women. What do they describe a sexual dysfunction. Well i am unsure at the moment what they describe a sexual dysfunction but it just talks about how women as they get older and they don't get enough sleep were nearly twice as likely to issue reports of lack of sexual interest or pleasure than women who got plenty of shaddai. Okay that's sexual. Dysfunction is just being not horny not not interested but that could also be you have a long term partner and you don't like them or you have kids and you're irritated. I mean there's a lot of things that that could probably stemmed from. But it says it was a study that poor sleep was measured by the pittsburgh sleep quality index which ask questions about ability to fall in stay asleep and the use of sleep medication daytime drowsiness and more. The study also found that good sleep quality was linked with having more sexual activity. Does that surprise anyone. I i don't sleep at all that i have. I'm fairly sexually. Active right is is me. Because i get such good sleep and i get so excited to go to sleep sometimes. Like oh my god. My boyfriend's gonna wanna have sex by just wanna go sleep because it's going to be great but you're not considered an older woman. I mean you're still in your prime. I hate sleeping. And i always have. I mean it's just little slices of unconsciousness. I'm grumpy if i don't get sleep. Well sure as am i. But i still don't like the idea of sleeping and i don't like knowing that i have to sleep while i'm total opposite. I like get excited to go to sleep and go to dream world. I would rather be productive for those few hours. So how long do you think you sleep when you sleep like per night. What what's your average five hours. Well that's that's my probably get seven to eight. I don't i hate sleeping but now what your sleep schedule like seven in the morning till the afternoon. Something like that. Well is it. Usually i guess on average probably being closer to six hours a night. Because it's usually about seven that i fall asleep. Not eight and that michael can get sleep. He sleeps like that kind of schedule and he can get a little bit of sleep and function like forever. It's until two or three or four in the morning and not i'm completely dead. Do you like the night though. Yeah because i just like. I hate the night i like sleeping through it so it doesn't exist in my world. I love the night the during the day trying to be productive is almost impossible because people are texting me or calling me or emailing me at night. None of that happens. I can just sit there and focus on a thing and be productive not have to worry about whether or not ernie wants to play re pre-recorded show or something but now. How often do you miss things during the day when people need you if they need me before when i am this one of the afternoon. That's their problem aria sleeping. Just we'll wait back when i had telegram and actually said they're all my account. Don't message me before noon. Okay well that's good to now back to this. It says if you put a platter of sleep and platter of sex in front of a tired woman. She's going to pick sleep every time. These results she added should be a wakeup call for physicians to begin asking their patients about their sleep and their sexual functioning in an ideal world. Every woman should be asked by primary care provider about her sexual function. And is this happening. No it is not sleep. Maybe sometimes something easier to ask about and poor sleep is associated with many negative outcomes such cardiovascular disease if she's not sleeping well that leads the next question because sexual function is probably suffering to sleep. Insects are intertwined. It's not just women who experienced sexual dysfunction due to poor sleep it's men two thousand nine study found obstructive sleep apnea a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts was linked to erectile dysfunction and more global sexual difficulties zim. In interesting i have sleep apnea we'll sleep apnea is where your you stop breathing right for a little bit. That's do you. Do you have one of the machines. Have you ever had just gonna let him. Do i care once you start. Bony always start breathing again. I'm sorry once you always start breathing again with sleep apnea okay. I mean some people die of it but i. I don't think it's anything. That's worth my time or i mean you're pretty fit so they might be bad shaper a b. Nfl player who was in like thirty two or something and he died of sleep apnea ns asleep. Oh into okay. does it like wake you up. Because you're like oh my god. It's freezing i. It has me up before. But only because i had stopped breathing for such a long period of time that i began convulsing and that woke me up. How long ago was that. Oh that has it has happening years okay. So maybe your lifestyle was different. Oh it was for sure different. A says there are a number of reasons on the other hand having good sex is linked to better sleep. Orgasms are not only relaxing which can promote slumber but they result in the boost of certain hormones that aid sleep in both men and women after sex in women for example extra estrogen levels increase after an orgasm and that can enhance rem cycles and promote a better night's sleep. I don't know after i have an orgasm. I'm pretty energized. i'm not sleepy at all. I'm so sleepy right after having sex no michael's like hey and i'm like okay. Well we're going to sleep now and he just conches out and i'm like okay. I'm going to get up and clean the kitchen. Oh my god no says in men orgasms increases production of a hormone called pearl acton that promotes deep wave. Sleep the type of that. The body needs to repair and restore itself in a new study over thirty. Four hundred women who visited the mayo health clinics in rochester minnesota and scottsdale arizona completed questionnaires on sleep quality from december twenty six to september two thousand nineteen the women who are average age. Fifty three also went under also twent- clinical evaluation for sexual dysfunction and were asked to rate their level of distress about their sex life. You can't call it sexual dysfunction unless the woman is distressed about it they said for example. A woman. Spare get right. A woman can have low sexual desire but it may not bother her so we are the first study to not to my knowledge that has actually looked at not only sexual function but just stress related to that. The research was part of the larger study called the dreams research. If you want to look into it were nine. Thousand women were studied for a dozen years. She's assistant extensive study. I would think so says what to do. I don't hesitate to discuss both sleep and sexual concerns with your physician. While most women will be able to identify that they're suffering from a mood disorder depression or anxiety. They may not realize that they are struggling with other issues such a sleep apnea or the uncontrollable urge to move. Your legs called restless leg syndrome. I still think that's completely fabricated disease restless leg syndrome. Yeah they had a medication. That didn't do anything except make people not move when they sleep so like a sleeping pill so they're like all right. Well we've already spent fifteen years and ten twenty thirty million dollars trying to invent this drug and turns out. It doesn't really do anything. So let's just invent this disease and convince people they have it by. Think that it would probably be something about what they ingested before they were getting ready to go to sleep like even hours before coffee. Caffeine sodas lots of sugar depending on what they put in. Their bodies is going to determine how well they sleep. Also true and i'm not even if restless legs syndrome whatever. I'm not sure it's abnormal for people to move in their sleep now. I don't think so. Certainly not something that needs to be treated with medication in my opinion but i'm not a medical doctor. So what do i know. Says women can also do their best to practice good sleep hygiene for example you can exercise. Try outside if possible. Try to get some exercise which will reduce buildup stress chemicals and promote better sleep. Do they exercise before sleep. I believe so exercise during the day. Maybe help you be exhausted at night if you do it right because see that one but they want me to start doing jumping jacks or something for i'm going to bed it's going to be the opposite of what i'm trying to achieve here. What are your thoughts. Do you have sleep issues. Leading to sexual frustrations or what was the terminology. They use dysfunction sexual dysfunction six zero three two eight three sixty one sixty more coming up unless you wanna talk about something. Six zero three two eight three six one six zero.

What's more the crypto. Six dot com. Let's go to the phones that we've got tom calling from here in new hampshire tom. You're on free. Talk live north back to the day. When george floyd was being murdered and some humans were shooting the cops with cameras. Okay and that guy gathered the evidence and that got One cop convicted. But george floyd is dead and imagine if they hit why didn't people go up there and shoot the cop with guns and the reason is because the government intimidates people out of protecting somebody who is being brutally murdered. This is part of the problem. It's not just cops being free to lie their way out of murder charges. It's people being intimidated into Standing by and not doing anything about it and so laws need to be changed so that You know if you're there when it's happening and you kill the cop then you are not guilty of any crime. And let's say they're arresting somebody on a curfew violation and the humans go out and kill the cop and the next day. The state supreme court hands down its long awaited ruling. Which is that. The curfew is so unconstitutional. That even the government's own puppet judges in the government's own kangaroo courts cannot uphold it if that means it was no and void ab initio from from the moment that it was. Let me interject. because you're wrong. People aren't scared of stopping the police from doing what they're doing. People are scared of peer pressure. How their peers will judge them. There've been numerous studies about this taking people who were supposed to be waiting for interviews. Or that's what they were told. They were waiting on an interview in the lobby. So the the study involved. People sitting smoke out of a door. In order to make light there was a fire and when the person was alone they would always go knock on the door. make sure nothing was on fire. Make sure everyone was okay but as soon as you introduced another person into that situation even as their eyes were watering from smoke they were just sit there and pretend like everything was fine. Because the absolute last thing the average human being wants is to be perceived as overreacting. That's why people don't get involve with cops that that's that's what causes people to stand there and watch as six men raped a woman. They don't wanna like they were overreacting. Well i will say i would be scared to shoot the cop in that situation because there was four other cops there that might just shoot me all those cops anyway. Oh no yeah. But let's say that he's just like going up two random person and just starts beating them up like punching them in the face and stuff and like your average person would want to retaliate against the cop. Maybe not even shoot them. If there's four other cop standing around there watching you might not do anything because the four other cops would start doing that to you. You know what i mean. Well we keep in mind. Let's say the next day like i say. The state supreme court handed down its long-awaited ruling that. The curfew is null and void equally null and void equally unconstitutional. There's no curfew. And there's no curfew new hampshire. Tom therefore let me just finish the point. they're talking about. There's no you in new hampshire. If a cop is trying to arrest somebody on a have a good night. Tom i dude. I don't know what you're talking about. I literally mentioning curfew insurer. Maybe it didn't. You said he was from new hampshire. He said there he is the. He's tom from new hampshire. He said there's surpreme court ruling tomorrow that the curfew is unconstitutional. What curfew. I don't know maybe he was just trying to make a point and he just never got to it. He didn't really listen to either of our points. Anyway no he. He's one of the people who who just likes to talk and that that's fine. But i have to know what you're talking about an order for that to happen in that particular scenario you just hashing. Let him finish your rights. So we're talking about sleep and sex here on what it mark kohler. She talk live she talk. Yeah i think there used to be a show called. She talk live on on fm. If i recall correctly. I believe you're right in like two thousand eleven twenty twelve. Maybe it would have been a long time ago. Yeah yeah but anyway. So we're talking about sleep sex here in this article that alleges that healthy sleep leads to healthy sex and healthy sex leads to healthy sleep so even though i don't sleep a lot. Maybe it's just that. I sleep really well and i sleep really well because i am sexually active. Pay without would make sense. But i'm actually active. And i don't sleep really well i don't know if i sleep really well or not. I mean i don't feel rested when i wake up. Imagine really have to start pounding caffeine nicotine before i don't wanna murder anyone because sleep apnea wake up with a headache every single day. So i don't know how much rest i'm actually getting. Do you take anything for that. No just just drink some water and it goes away. There's no need to take it. I'm talking about like before you sleep. It's anything for sleep apnea no okay. It's not that important to me. Why i don't think that it's you. I don't think that sexual dysfunction is directly related to sleep issues. I think that sexual dysfunction is probably probably more environmental because if you have kids or you have chores or you hate your job or you know you don't have any friends. Are you know there could be all kinds of things that would cause you not to want to have sex with your partner or your boyfriend or your girlfriend. The article made a really good point at the beginning. Which is if you had a if you have any tired person if you give them the choice between sex and sleep hired person is going to choose sleep but this is also true of a tired person and food. I was getting ready to say that if you have chocolate cake and then you have someone who's tired. Which one are they going want. That doesn't mean the cake is bad for them. I know i might take the cake to bed. So was there any more from that story. Now it just went on to tell you some things that you try like exercise and setting sleep schedule watch. Your diet talked about not having caffeine after time said make sure your room is set up to be sleep friendly so no bright lights no loud sounds nothing like that. Make it comfy. It also helps to not use your room as a living room and this is something that i did when i was younger. But you know. I was just like i was renting a bedroom so i was just always in my and it. It made it much more difficult to go to sleep because okay. i'm going to bed now. Was i'm already in bed but i'm not going to sleep. Did you find you use gadgets when you're in your room like that when you just had your room you're renting as i fell asleep. Yeah like when you were trying to go to bed. Did you get y- enthralled and link different things online or in your phone or playing a game or sure occasionally. Yeah and is because that space. Wasn't you know dedicated for sleeping. But that's no longer an issue. And i still sleep with a television on it even my bedroom. But that's just. Because i need the i need the noise and the the something therefore my brain to do to allow me to fall asleep otherwise i just lay there thinking and end up not sleeping. I've heard so many people say that. But i cannot sleep with the tv on there needs to be either silence a fan noise or like a ac noise. I would go nuts sitting in silence trying to fall asleep. I like it quiet. So that. If i hear something i'm like what was that. I wanna know them. I want to be able to hear. Somebody's coming in my house and they're not supposed to if there's noise i'm not gonna here. I do have dogs. But that's a fair point you know and it might be wise for me to start giving us some consideration considering people have indeed Lately come into my house without my permission saint or so even if the doors are like sometimes they get like. I thought i locked the door. The garage door was open but yet they did despite the door being they did affect in. But i don't think that's likely to happen again. I'm also not letting it changed. How i sleep. I know jason hintze on facebook. Who's big eneco polka guy. He was talking about how he no longer sleeps naked now that he knows you know the fbi coming to get you other people. Oh yeah but then actually deters them abed. No no no. It doesn't they did not give. It did not phase them one. Bit that you're asleep. I was asleep. Yes six in the morning. So i just gone to bed when the last hour day do it at the same time to everyone. Yes oh i did not know that. I had no idea anything was even happening here. Yeah me neither with her house or enroll. I've asked the cop was like. I need my phone because i need directions to his house and she was like. You can't go to ari's house like why it was an intense day.

Some racial justice advocates. Say they have mixed feelings about chauvin. Being convicted on all counts for the murder. Of george floyd vanessa fuentes with the headwaters foundation for justice says in a sense. There's no justice because floyd isn't alive but she still sees a window for the state and not just the twin cities to speak up and take action whether you're on the front lines on the streets moving justice forward or whether you're on the back end of the movement and resource from a different place. Whatever your skill sets are what your talents are. We all have a role to play the foundation. Which is located in south minneapolis.

Police accountability groups are applying more pressure on law makers to adopt a host of reform measures. As for community level. Efforts went as says it's important to acknowledge that activists and residents will have to navigate a range of emotions in the coming months. That's in part because three other former officers in floyd's case we'll see their trial began later this year of trauma in the community. And there's still a lot to kind of work through. She also notes the group seeking justice for the death of dante. Right who was fatally shot by brooklyn center police officer this month that former officer faces manslaughter.

You're doing the show though and that that's going to be the what i spend my time doing there this year. But i enjoy doing it. You're the twentieth july the fourth. So i don't know if people remember there was these. Things called crypto kitties at some point or something like that. I think that's what they were at theory him. I don't know what exactly they were. But they were a token on the theorem network. You could buy a digital kitty. I think could fight them with one another. Yep and you could grow your kitty farm and you could breed cats and you could sell cats and it was stupidly expensive like some of this stuff like a hat for your catcalls. Lie to three hundred dollars is it was stupid and people were buying people loving it and the there bogging down the entire network with this thing. Jesus it was bad for him. No it was good for theory but it was it. There was so much traffic on it. That you couldn't do anything else with it. It was just slow well. The thing about the crypto kitties. I didn't like. I just showed me then like a few months ago as they just weren't very cute like i wouldn't be all these are cute cartoony almost monster hunting if there were like q. Like nintendo style. That would be way better so you have a story about something similar. That's happening today or happening in the world today rather yes. This is crypto horses. This from sportico says people are breeding digital horses and spending real money tamagotchi meets churchill. Downs in this -essarily new as you mentioned a ten dogs allows people to basically spend money too. I don't know what you didn't ten dollars play with dogs digital dogs yard. I mean i guess you just by the game. One time in. it's like fifteen bucks or something and then you just play with dogs. It's it's not the same as like With the with the kitties like people were paying to get like upgrades on their cats and stuff like that. But but nintendo's were connected to the internet. I don't think nintendo ds is so this has tamagotchi meets churchill downs. In one of sport's newest crypto trends called Run and do you guys know it. Tomah gotcha is. I don't know what that is. Oh how to explain this to vincent yesterday there were this Little hand held thing and It had like a black and white screen and only three buttons on it. And you had like a little monster thing called atomic gotcha and you took care of it and played games within stuff until it grew up. But that's another thing it's like a fifteen dollar thing you buy one time and then you can keep growing tamagotchis on it. There were tremendously annoying. If i remember correct let me. They were fun at first. But i was like a little kid when they came out. So they're really funds me. I love thomas gotcha is a website. This has said run. The online game which has generated hyping consternation in equal measure allows for digital horse ownership as well as just about anything you'd want to deal with an online horse racing trading in. Yes breeding australia. Based studio virtually human launched in early twenty nineteen selling four thousand four hundred and fifty digital horses that year with an average price of about thirty dollars. It relied on. Nafta technology to establish proof of ownership in allow for a secondary transactions onsite lake open see the popular digital art and collectibles market. That's that's the thing that makes sense for an enough teach me because you have ownership of a piece of art that makes sense isn't enough t essentially just a a way of putting a copyright on the blockchain. I don't know enough about it. But one thing i don't understand like you can own the nf t the song but anyone can still listen to the song but it's like a digital piece of art. What does to stand for fungible token. I don't know more about it beyond that. Yeah i wish any more about it but they use it in this game to somebody. Owns the the enough t to horse than they own the horse. So that's you know who owns it but the horses digital right there's no actual there's no actual horse and you're buying a digital horse but now a horse per my husband is a black hole that you throw money into so like. Oh you're throwing money into it makes sense well. I used to have a friend who had an account on deviant art and she just drew horses and people would pay her for them like she'd put watermarks all over them so you couldn't just screenshot her horse but then they would get physical artwork right. It was still digital aside. I always thought that was weird. I thought this was going to be like the same thing but this is more like a game where they can breed them in own them. Do they charge you to do all of this stuff breeding own. I'm sure they do. Well they to buy them. You have to pay for them. Says that is now up to nearly eleven thousand horses sold with another eight thousand bread spread across three thousand six hundred so-called stables rare horse to ask okay. You're about to tell me what we're horses cost. Rare horses are now regularly selling more than fifteen thousand dollars when horse. What is wrong with crypto enthusiasts moron. This one horse sold for more than four thousand two hundred thousand dollars. I mean i understand. Cryptocurrency is up. it's going to the moon. But for god's sakes people they have nothing else to do with their crypto. they're just going to spend it on digital horses. I said that number. It's one hundred and twenty five thousand dollars so when horace sold for that much money one hundred twenty. That's real money. Well it's usd right. Yeah i think it's in usd. But they did mention of being a crypto trends so maybe it will explain later. What cryptos you can use. We've had hockey stick growth. The last four weeks virtually human co founder.

History providing the best information on their assigned prow prowess which can vary based on race link in the future elbowing says other factors like weather conditions and track. Location could impact results as well. Multiple races are run every hour across six different classes based on horses records and experience levels. Okay so they're buying digital horses for one hundred thousand dollars there then breeding them and digitally raising them and then racing them against each other. Yup and i. It looks like on their site. They have an upcoming races next tehran. They have horses that are for sale. Everything listed out like you. Would you would think now or these racist like animated or is it. They just randomly pick until you one. That would be interested. I don't know. I feel like if i'm gonna pay one hundred thousand dollars for a stupid digital horse the least you could do is give me an animation of it running in the you know you can. It says that like here's next to run. South african national derby is sixty nine dollars and sixty six cents and it's live so this is to race in a race.

And i can't stress this enough about people who chose to spend one hundred thousand plus dollars own digital horse so that they could race it against other digital horses that other people paid one hundred thousand dollars for sounds accurate and it also says that they could use their horses. Choose to stood out for other horses so if they can breathe. If i have a stud bonnie could say. Angie i want to breed my stud with your are my mayor with your stud and i would like to pay ten thousand dollars for our digital horse to have a digital baby happen but say this. You know crypto. katie's i at least understood. Because i guess i understand. This is well because there is the racing aspect which is kinda gave me. But i don't understand the de traffic cost involved here. I don't understand how anyone could get into this voluntarily. This seems like you'd have to put a gun to even then if you put a gun to my head and told me to spend one hundred thousand dollars or one of these stupid digital horses. I would not do it all right. They are you serious. Is there really a digital horse. Well it's pretty rosa. This these people it says in my world said israel ebeling said it exist on a parallel timeline to ours. It's quantum physics. It's twenty one fifty on a planet called novus earth on this earth digital horse racing reign supreme. It's been put in place to balance out wealth. What who is saying this abilene lunatic. He made the game. Or i can't remember what he is. He is the virtual virtually human co founder. Which is like the people that make the game and it's real to him. It says zad owners are able to use augmented reality tech to view their horses as if it was in their room the equivalent of teleporting them from a parallel timeline as l. l. bullying put with an entire world to explore. There's plenty of room to grow. He said in particular. He is focused on the ways. People can make a living within zaid by owning horses. Managing stables for others reporting on developments or in the future hosting digital events becomes ed's equivalent to the kentucky derby. Does it say what they win. Y quits can the prize be if your digital horse wins the race. If you're paying a lot of money for it is. I hope it would be worth it. I guess it's gambling right. You have to say they were gambling. So i'll say gamble on which is going to win Well i don't think it's gambling for you to bet your own horse. No but i'm on like if i don't have horses. I wonder if i could come in and bet on raise. I'm going to bet on number fifty two. That's a good horse. This article kind of ends pretty fast and it doesn't even bring up the crypto part like this article never explained the crypto part of this. It called it a crypto. Oh here it is sorry. Robot world business atari has signed on to help develop ellings vision offering its ip for a series of endgame activation such as the horses and tracks the legacy gaming company has created an entire division to focus on blockchain and digital worlds with an eye toward the metaverse of virtual space. Where users can interact with each other and in various companies. I guess it kind of didn't i guess. The crypto part is just that they're represented by enough teas so maybe you can't even pay crypto for your horse. Is there a coin is there is gazette token i would. I would bet that this is all being done on the theory. Of blockchain like crypto katie's was. Yep that seems the most likeliest so tori is getting involved with us. You have and i guess they'll make like pacman or whatever the like horse race areas and horses and knows pacman mandatory while on their side. It says getting started you have to create a stable said that you can. How's your horse. You can get into racing. You have to pick a place that you want to raise breeding to create a legacy for your stable Racing classes in progression. Which means if your horses bad then you don't move up and understanding the scarcity. I can't believe. I mean they're i don't object to people playing video games. Obviously but this goes a bit beyond that when you're thinking one hundred thousand dollars into a digital horse. I think it's time to reevaluate some life choices. How does such a person who's so reckless with money that they acquire one hundred thousand dollars to spend on a stupid digital horse anyway because they made a really good investment on a coin. Yeah maybe they just think like that. Such a good horse like it's babies will be rich to in. They can sell them and stuff. But i can only see this being like a small hobby. People just eventually stopped doing like how many people are going to be interested in it. They started as how many people are still paying are. Is that silly game. I have no idea. It's been a few years since i've even given it any thought. Yeah but it wasn't a one hundred thousand dollars expensive. Now it wasn't one hundred thousand arcadi. It was closer to the range of two three hundred. I think they're probably worth some items. That were a few thousand dollars but not one hundred thousand. But i still wouldn't want to spend that on a kitty either. I wouldn't spend that. Oh my actual caps nonetheless like a vet or something right but i mean if they want a cat toy no i'm not buying. Obviously i'm not talking to my cats like that but about two hundred dollar cats for commercial on tv for this thousand while you're sleeping. I wouldn't put a pass my cats to do that if they could speak though that they do have that kind of personality so in other stories we talk. We mentioned it briefly earlier A north carolina man has been fatally shot by a sheriff's deputy. This is also coming from fox news.

It's aria angie and bonnie and i think it's fitting that's night would be ladies night considering last night was like three heavily. Bearded people sitting around talking. If ever there was a do road night that would have been last night. But we're talking about now. A andrew brown junior who was shot and killed at eight thirty while deputies. Were conducting the search warrant at a home located nearby. It unclear whether or not the man who was killed was living at the property. That was being searched. The wavy tv. Ten news reported that brown was shot in his car. Witnesses told the news station he had climbed into his vehicle. And i begun to drive away when the deputies struck him. This is all very confusing. You don't generally describe it as striking someone. I struck him with my bullet. The hell happened here. Police did not provide details regarding whether brown was armed or the reason for the search warrant so they were searching a home. It's unclear this is very badly written. It's unclear whether this was even his home. That was being searched. He gets in his car. Evidently a deputy quote struck him. Whatever that means and at some point somewhere along the way he got shot. It's very confusing. The north carolina state bureau of investigation is looking into the shooting. The racist of the deputies were not in were not disclosed but wouldn't said the deputy who struck who struck brown had been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation so evidently the deputy hit him and somehow somewhere along the way someone got shot but if he was in his car driving away was the deputy chasing after him to hit him. It sounds like it. Or maybe he was driving towards the deputies. I mean that would be the only reason. I could see that they would have any justification of he was trying to run them over. Wooten said that the deputy was wearing a body camera that was on at the time. He declined to say how many shots were fired. District attorney andrew humble said the bureau of as bureau of investigation pro would be thorough and will not be a rush to judgment. The shooting happened at about eight thirty. That's useless information. Crowd gathered around the shooting. Same which was blocked off by police tape and with multiple law enforcement cruisers with their lights flashing according to footage from wavy keith. Keith rivers president of the pasqual pasquale tank county chapter of the aa. Cpi called for an independent investigation into the shooting and criticize the sheriff's office for taking hours to release details. Even after a crowd of about one hundred people gathered near the scene. So i mean that doesn't tell us a whole lot about what actually happened there but it's not surprising police. If there's one thing they do really well it's kill people and they've been as you pointed out bunny. They've been doing a lot of that lately. What was the the video of the girl with the knife who was recently shot. Have you seen anything about that. We should pull up an article about it. Because i haven't read one. I've just seen like headlines in tweets about it. Someone else would have to pull that up. I'm not allowed to just google things like a normal person. I will look it up. All i know is that she was fifteen and i read a headline that she was sixteen and she had a knife and she was shot in the chest. Four times four times. That's what i that's what i will say Fifteen saw that she was a foster kid in the Like under custody of the state at at the time that this happened but that was just another like headline still shooting. Her four times in the chest is got to be excessive. And especially when the cops have you know like armor and stuff like that on them. Can they just grab her and not let her stab the other person without what. She's trying to stop someone else. Well that was like apparently with people are claiming that she trying to either stabber another girl. And that's why she got shot not trying to stabber. Cut the cop but like another girl her age. This is a story from the washington post Posted today says ohio. Please failure shoot black teenage girl just before a shaaban. Chauvin verdict chauvin. Yep the fatal shooting of a black teenager by columbus police on tuesday sto grief and anger just as the murder conviction of former mentally apples. Minneapolis police officer was being charged and sell char being celebrated as a sign of long elusive accountability. For law enforcement. Please said at a late news conference on tuesday that the girl had threatened to others with a knife before the shooting playing segments of body camera video. That showed the victim lunging toward someone in a driveway before an officer fired four shots. A knife is visible in the driveway next to the girl as the police perform cpr on her. We know based on the footage. The officer took action to protect another young girl in the community. But family is grieving tonight. In this young fifteen year old girl will never be coming home family members and franklin county children services identified the victim as a sixteen year old makhaya bryant and said she had been in foster care place of not named the victim and said that she was fifteen years old polly bryant told. Wb in s that the victim was her daughter are very loving peaceful little girl. The incident prompted demonstrators together in the neighborhood with the violence unfolded and outside columbus police headquarters with many questioning whether police could have taken less lethal actions in the case. I would think so. She was a fifteen or sixteen year. Old girl don't they generally have tasers. I realized that they may accidentally reach for their gun. Thinking it's a taser and then you know murder someone that way. All yellow are all tasers. Yellow that cops carey. I do not know something. Like i think it was. Mark pointed out on the show. The other day was just like they're such different weights. Like you wouldn't pick up a a light thing that's just a taser gun. They don't have the same trigger. Yeah i would definitely expect anyone over the age of twelve to be able to pick up a handgun and pick up a taser which was which that would make sense. Especially a trained cop would have that ability but anyone over the age of twelve can pick up thing go. Yeah that's that is way to to be a gun or that is way too heavy to be a taser. But ideally yeah cops. I don't want cops have tasers either. But a a nonlethal methods of handling this would have been better than shooting. This teenage girl tackling her. She's a teenage girl. Yeah and even if they had neither like. I don't see any reason behind shooter. But if they did why four times. That's like i'm gonna make sure your debt like shooter in the leg. Something like that. Yeah it goes on to say that. Neighbor ira graham. The third said that he had just come home from work when he heard shots ran outside to see a teen girl on the ground badly wounded it was disorienting coming to so close to the verdict in the case he said it's just so ironic that this stuff just never ends columbus interim police chief michael woods said that just after four thirty pm on tuesday. Police received a nine one. One call from someone who reported that women were trying to stab them then hung up dispatchers. Were unable to gather any information about the weapons that were used are at the scene body. Camera footage shows a why officer emerge from a vehicle as the victim appears to chase someone who falls onto the sidewalk the teen then turns toward someone else wearing a pink sweat suit and takes a swinger her head. The officer fires four shots at the girl leaving her sprawled next to a car in the driveway. She had a knife. She just ran at her. One officer says on the footage video taken at the same by a neighbor shortly after the shooting shooting shows to police officers kneeling over the girl. One is performing chest compressions. She appears unresponsive. And blood is pulled on the ground beneath her around them. Several more officers tape off the area and family and neighbors began to cry. One neighbor says he shot her four times hazel bryant who identified herself as the victims on told the columbus dispatch that her niece got into a fight with another person at her foster home and police killed her for imagine. Like if you heard the whole conversation in the back row was really like not in the wrong. That makes it even worse. Maybe the other people were just completely bullying her. And i mean not that that gives you the right to stab someone but also it just seems more like something that should be mediated than. She should be killed for her overreaction. I don't know what she didn't stab anyone. She may have threatened to but she certainly didn't stop anyone. It goes on to say that bryant said the victim had a knife but had dropped it before the police officer shot her ginther and other columbus officials vowed to release more information as soon as it becomes available and appealed to residents to remain calm as they are. Higher bureau of criminal investigation opened a case on the shooting. No matter the circumstances that family is in agony and they are in my prayers. Well don't be concerned about it because the police are going to investigate themselves. And they're going to determine that they did nothing wrong of course as they usually do but did you not say. She was not holding the knife at the time. She said that she dropped the knife. Prior to being shot by the officer. Six zero three two eight three six one six zero. This is free talk live.

What so ever at the moment. So that's simply not the case. Check it out. The crypto six dot com. We do in the studio tonight. It's aria angie and bonnie and i'm looking for something else to discuss. Hope that isn't about police killing people but there's been so much of that lately that it's hard to find there was fourteen year old boy. That was running away from the cops in What was that. I think michigan running away and got shots you. That was like this week. That's why i was saying like it. Seems like they're doing that every day this week. That's weird what they do it just about every day what they do do it. Every day in fact. I think in two thousand and nineteen. There were something like twelve hundred people killed by police in the united states which is a little over three day your essay. That's like three a day. So i mean it's something worth always worth talking about regardless of how depressing it as i mean here. We are talking about one story about police shooting a guy and we immediately get off into another story of that just happened. A police shooting a sixteen year old girl because presumably. They had no other way of dealing with the sixteen year. Old girl now seems like a situation where the cop just was so excited to get this action. He was like she she just lunch down another girl and then like apparently that she drops the knife and then he shoots her four times. I see no other explanation than he was. Just all excited about this situation and wanted to shoot someone. Well in general. I think if a person is going to shoot another person i don't think they typically fire off late one or two shots is usually more like three or four. Why you're going to stop a fifteen year old girl with one shot. You're gonna stop her from doing whatever she was doing. Standing there not holding. I don't even think it would take a shot to stop a fifteen year old girl standing there holding in i've even it's like a huge butcher knife. I mean if there if there's a male cop there with any kind of power they should be able to go up. If that person swings a knife they should be able to knock it out of the hand. They don't have batons s. She's scared deflect it they don't like having a scary jobless choose scary for them. It does seem cowardly that every everything that happens to a police officer. It seems the response of shoot them even. If it's a sixteen year there was another story about a girl. i think she was eighteen. Who was out in her pajamas a year or two ago and police shot and killed her. I don't remember any details beyond that though. Because there's there's so many of these. Yeah and we have become accustomed to them. That people don't really get too excited and less say it involves some kind of race issue If if like some joe baba zero get shot joe. Bob must have been doing something wrong. You know no one gets really upset. Yeah and that's frustrating. When i was when i mentioned facebook arrested by the fbi says what did you do. I saw that and the obvious response was she got arrested by the fbi. That's all that that means. That doesn't mean. I did anything to warrant warranted or deserve it and just like and that's the same case when police use them. Well what did they do. They they died. That's what they did and that's all we know at this point but even if even if they had a fake twenty dollar bill or whatever it's not justification for shooting them or for kneeling on their neck for nine minutes until they freaking di wasn't nine minutes. I think it was nine minutes that's crazy. The whole thing was crazy. Yes and there were people standing around saying hey get off him and stuff like that but but no one took action and they probably didn't take action because they saw the man was going to get killed and it had they taken action they would probably have been killed themselves exactly like if you saw. That man was going to get killed in your. Maybe the right thing to do would be stand up and stopped the cochran doing it therefore other cop standing around. They're gonna probably immediately kill you if you even lunch toward that cop. So yeah. That was kind of a helpless situation. I see people all the time. Criticizing people for not going up and doing something but we're kind of being oppressed by armed thugs and gangs and they all have guns and we're not allowed to use them against them or not allowed to use any against them but they're allowed to use them against us and rarely get in trouble for it. So i don't blame anyone and it's an issue that the police don't like it when people question their judgment and that's what people were doing when they were saying. Hey get off his neck. He can't breathe. You know the the police officer had decided that you know he. He could breeds just fine and it didn't matter that he probably knew he was wrong. That george floyd was dying. He didn't like having someone say. Hey you're in the wrong here lifting. His knee would have been admitting that he was in. The wrong is like when we cut blocked us probably nine months ago hearing keen. These police officers pulled over some college kids for not turning on their headlights and one of the passengers pukes like six times out into the side of the street. I mean he's he's clearly had way too much to drink. A may even have alcohol poisoning can barely stay conscious. I'm begging the police officers. Just get this guy. Some water the water. He'll ask for o- like george. Floyd asked for air. Is that what you're saying here is he could speak. Yeah he's he's too drunk to ask for water dude. Are you kidding me. He's say you're a human being. He's being you've been trump before right. Yes oh yeah. I'm sure the cop has as well and if you're so drunk that you're puking repeatedly into the streets. While pulled over by police officers you are way too drunk and probably need some water. But they don't care now they don't because it's not their life is not their son. It's not their their daughter. Whoever and you would you would hope. I guess that they would have some kind of compassion for people when they pull someone over that you know if i i have a family if i'm a police officer and you know i want my kid to go through. What some of these people go through. But they don't they're like well my family's better than yours than this is my job. I'm just doing my job. That is the land they always go to and i. It would be better if police actually had more compassionate but what we see in these cases just over and over again as whatever humanity they once had was trained out of them sociopathic to the extent where they don't view us they can't have compassion for us because they don't view us as human beings. Well it's them against us is that and also that they believe that the laws are the same as morals like they were breaking the law so they did something wrong so they deserve what happens to them. They're not thinking about the lobbying right or wrong. Just the law is and then you're wrong if you're breaking it that's most americans in general though that's not just police. There are so many americans. Do you remember the guy who did the shooting at the joker movie. I do. Remember that the the iran yeah the crazy guy. I actually heard from people who made the argument that he couldn't be a sociopath or a psychopath because he stopped at stop signs and red lights on the way to the gel. They were so convinced that you know breaking the law is the same thing as being moral that the guy who shot up at theatre. Could it be a psychopath. Because he knew that running a stop sign was wrong or he didn't want to get stopped and pulled over before he could go and you know murderer all of these people. That's the obvious right. What is your right. And that's certainly why he wasn't running. Stop signs of stuff on the way there. But even if he even if he wasn't whatever reason he wasn't running stop size red lights that has nothing to do with right or wrong. It would be wrong to run a stop sign and you know run over a pedestrian but to just run a stop. That's not. There's nothing moral or immoral about that is just traveling. That's exactly right. Yeah the stop sign by our studio studios pretty stupid stupid. There's there's no reason whatsoever for there to be a stop sign right there. But i think even cop has said that will video that that is stupid. The one here wasn't someone told me that the things that for traffic laws are just suggestions. A friend of mine said they're just suggestions and you can choose whether to abide by the suggestions or to do your own thing now. Cop no stop there you go. I wish they were only suggestions but too often. They're not. They're backed by a lot more than a suggestion for sure. You're getting a lot of trouble. You absolutely can So it's better to stop a stop signs and you know be be a proper little surfin obey all the stupid little laws that caesar has thrown out for you to follow but the average american commits three felonies day. So it's almost impossible to abide all of these laws. Well i like being above average six zero three two eight three six months to call textual the airwaves.

It took just about ten hours for the jury. In the derek chauvin case to find the former minneapolis police officer guilty on all counts in the death of george floyd round level community grigson minneapolis say the derek chauvin verdict is still being processed on an emotional level but they see it as an opportunity for all the minnesota to take another step and addressing long standing in equities. Some racial justice advocates say they have mixed feelings about chauvin being convicted on all counts for the murder. George floyd vanessa fuentes with the headwaters foundation for justice says in a sense. There's no justice. Because floyd isn't alive but she's still sees a window for the state not just the twin cities to speak up and take action whether you're on the front lines on the streets moving justice forward or whether you're on the back end of the movement and resource from a different place. Whatever your skill sets are whatever your talents are. We all have a role to play the foundation. Which is located in south minneapolis near where floyd was killed says many the groups that works with arna point yet to fully embrace the outcome or declare victory at the state capitol police accountability. Groups are applying more pressure on law makers to adopt a host of reform measures. As for community level. Efforts went as says it's important to acknowledge that activists and residents will have to navigate a range of emotions in the coming months. That's in part because three other former officers in floyd's case we'll see their trial began later this year trauma in the community and they're still kind of work through she also notes the group seeking justice for the death of dante. Right who was fatally shot by brooklyn center police officer this month that former officer faces manslaughter charges though authorities have described the incident as an accident. There's controversy about whether those charges are sufficient. Mike mohan how news service groups working for racial justice held a rally tuesday night on the las vegas strip. It was a celebration and expression of relief that minnesota jury convicted dirk chauvin chauvin was accused of kneeling on floyd's neck for more than nine minutes desert smith with the group more than a hashtag.

It's reo angie and bonnie and for those who aren't aware i am currently being treated like a felon. This means i can't possess any weapons whatsoever. There's even restrictions on the length of a blade. That i can possess. I believe it's four inches or something like that. I'd have to look even kitchen knives. I i think there's an exception for kitchen knives because the supervisor officer to say oh take to get rid of that but i did have to. Obviously the it's unclear at the moment who actually have who actually has the guns that were at my house. The fbi claims that they didn't take them but keen pd says that they don't have them initially. They said they did have them but they took them because the they were concerned about my safety with the quote protesters that were out there at my property also known as my friends that were out there. Were supporting you. Yes but keen. Pd is now saying. They don't have them but when my supervisor came out i have a compound. Bow head to get rid of that. So it's just all manner of throwing knives had to get rid of those could see aurea just going down through the middle of with your bow gonna get me a deer. well it was certainly for home defence. It was certainly not for hunting. I'm not much of a hunter binomial. And now you've gotta admire a weapon that can be that deadly and that silence is quiet. Yes yeah number. One advantage there's also other advantages like if you shoot a fifty pound or five hundred fifty pound bag of sand with a rifle. The bullet is going to be destroyed but an arrow will go straight through it without an issue so does have other advantages but anyway not allowed any sort of armed self defense at the moment and that's fine. I'm not in danger. I i was a bit when i ran for. Sheriff i drew some flack for that. But in general people missing with your mailbox are your signs or something They were stealing signs out of my yard. My car got vandalized and a few other things. But once i started putting the videos of people pulling up along the street and stilling by property was i started putting those on the internet. All of that stopped. Oh i bet. Some people are like oh snot. Yeah my friends are going to know. I did this. Yes i never did. Identify any of the people who were responsible but it put a stop to it so that was good. That's all she wanted exactly. I was parked behind a car with a write in earl nelson sticker on the back yesterday. They had bumper stickers for that. Yeah that's kinda depressing though signs were those signs. Were depressingly ugly. That was that was the worst part of the entire. Sheriff campaign was one of those ugly abominations of signs went up. It was just all sins tacky. Little signs in the first place with like right in stickers literally slapped on them yep they do. I would have paid for your graphic designer. If you didn't blanket cheshire. County in these abominations i even offered to. But no when i couldn't accept anything from your. You're the competition. I don't want to make the world ugly though and they did and they succeeded not least of which by reelecting ally rivera. But anyway the right to defend yourself it it is important and we generally. I'm the biggest threat to my safety are going to be the police. The police hearing cain has spent the better part that less half years stalking me. And this is documented. There are plenty of witnesses to this and video evidence to suggest this also true every night. When i get off work and i drive home. I am followed by. Kpd not not since march sixteenth. Interestingly enough but prior to that every single night it was like having my own personal armed. Escort home. isn't that nice of them to escort you home every night. That's how i chose elected. That's why they didn't think you needed anything in your house. They were taking care of you and that's so nice with them but i would rather take care of myself. Yeah that would make a lot of sense. 'cause you're going to have your best interest at heart yes i. I'm not going to kill anyone. And if i ever need help i will you sell for one which you can find. It gets up. Oh no we can't play that right now. Yeah the source because in the heads of the fbi so avoid cellphone one anyway. I have methods of contacting my friends who won't show up issue. My cats as it happens. My cats did not get shot. Thankfully that was the only time in the entire ordeal that my voice actually broke was when they asked me. Do you have any cats or dogs. Yes i have two cats. Please don't hurt them and they didn't so my get shot did they let them out where they out of the house where they in the house so they were hiding. Oh good so they were candied. They knew that mess was hitting up. They were like no. We gotta yes. They're very shy anyway. It takes a very long time to get to know people as there was no chance i doubt the fbi ever even saw them because if they want to hide i can't find them and they're my cats. They come to me. But there have been times where i thought dinner must have gotten outside or something because i just. I looked everywhere. Oh that's right your cats name dinner. Just one of the miss dinner. The other is rainbow. I love that. That's great commute dinner. Thanks but you have an article about self defense and the reasons that that's important yes. It's from feed 'em freedom phoenix dot com. It was published on april twentieth yesterday. Arm self defense is essential in a free society it starts with saying president biden has said that executive instructions to various branches of the federal government will attempt to reduce the frequency and possibility of such violence. Some of his proposals however are merely using the gun control argument as cover for more government redistributive intervention within society thus when the white house released a statement april seventh of twenty twenty one detailing its plan in the stretch and one of them called for a five billion investment over eight years to support community violence intervention programs with a key part of it being to help connect individuals to job training and job opportunities. The department of health and human services will be directed to educate state governments in better using medicaid funding to better subsidize such interventionist projects. In other words if only we expand notoriously wasteful and ineffective government job training programs gun. Violence magically will be reduced. If only what. I thought they were they were getting it. What's the point if only unemployed gun. Using criminals can be tall a nonviolent job skill they will stop robbing convenience stores and stop killing people in gang-related drive by shootings that will be left for the police to do. Plus once the national mandated minimum wages rates to fifteen dollars an hour. There will be long lines. Obviously of perspective employers eagerly eagerly waiting to hire former street thugs with their newly certified government provided entry level employment skills. Who knew it could be so simple. I gotta tell you as someone who is working right there are who worked through the pandemic. It doesn't matter what they raise. The minimum wage to people are not working right now and they're not going to now they're on unemployment and they're getting all these kickbacks from unemployment. The unemployment benefits are insane. It's these standard default unemployment of two hundred three hundred dollars a week. Whatever there's a standard of three hundred dollars a week on top of whatever your unemployment would normally be. It's like seventy five percent of their paycheck. And i think it's four hundred on top of it isn't it. I might have gone up but it was three hundred for a while. It was initially six. I remember that was six hundred dollars. My sister showed me her her. You know history of unemployment payments and they all came at once and it was just like six months of six hundred dollars every single week for. You can't compete with that as an employer you can't compete with the government paying people four hundred dollars a week to sit at home and watch cat videos on youtube and then plus all the stimulus that they sent out. Yeah i mean you're making much more unemployment and with stimulus packages than you would going to a nine to five job. I don't. I don't like these social welfare programs but not blame someone for you know. What the government's going to pay me more to sit at home. I'm just gonna sit at home. And then i can go to the government and i can say you know what don't have a job. Can you help me with my ran it. Can you help me with my heat. I need some food stamps. Can you help me with that as well. In the government's gonna say honey. Let me give you all this. None of us going away in fact. It's probably going to get worse. I've heard rumors of another stimulus. Check in the works. I don't know how substantial those rumors are though about another coming out. If actually cared about people they would just make it not impossible for them to start businesses and make their money that would be ideal but when you had the homeless california who started a huge signing company and actually managed to find his way into an apartment from doing that.

We got no choice. I mean if you gotta sharpen pitchfork. You gotta do it together. do i. don't think that things are getting way way. Grazie they are. But i don't. Violence is going to prove to beat the answer. No but people are getting lazy. They all want something for nothing for nothing. Don't happen no it doesn't and people are starting to see that with with lines. Have food places just being inexcusably long except you know the actual kane is a highly liberal cultural town right like they pay people to come out here. Put me murals on decides buildings and stuff like that. They have little music festivals yet. All of these awesome little locally owned restaurants are basically dead in the water with no customers. Maybe two or three people eating there at night where you have applebees or mcdonald's or taco bell with blind center just constantly full in this stupid hipster little town there are help wanted signs everywhere. No one wants a job. No one wants to work and people are starting to realize. Oh hey yeah. We're paying all of these people to sit at home and that's the reason it takes me forty five minutes to get to the line. At mcdonald's i'm better than sixty years old right. Yeah there's no place that i have ever been given me something for nothing. I busted my ass. The law has busted ass. I have had never had a free ride. And i am supposed to be the privileged white man base out. I think that was him saying by. I think that was that was it. Thanks for the call tonight. I mean you're absolutely right. There is a streak of laziness going on in the united states and they don't even view it as being lazy because so many of these younger people do think that if they want to they should just be allowed to sit at home and play video games or smoke pot and learned the ukulele or whatever it is they want to do all day every day they they have completely lost sight of the fact that we are organisms existing in the universe that requires us to sustain ourselves. It's not capitalism or society this forcing you to get out there and get a job and earn your way in the world. That's the nature of the universe that we live in an organism that cannot get its own food dyes. You have to eat which means someone has to be out there growing food. Now you can either led a slave do that or you can do it yourself or you can work somewhere else that you enjoy a little bit more like at a at walmart or something and let the people who want to work out in the fills food work on those going food and then you can get them so sort of universal medium of exchange showing that hey you contributed to society and this way and you want to trade that means of exchange for some food that this farmer grew. They don't understand that it's it's not capitalism or walmart or a greedy corporations that require them to get out there and work. It's just the nature of reality. Yeah there's a lot of people mad about these. Greedy corporations take money from the government. And all the stuff. They're just sitting at home taking money from the government while having the same like that doesn't make sense last year. Twenty twenty when. I lost my job actually didn't lose my job. I guess i quit my job because they stopped getting any customers and i was a waitress. Why would i keep working. There i went to a doing uber. Eats and i just refuse to just become somebody who gets six hundred dollars a week and i was. I was like bussing my a word for wait. Can i say the word on the radio. Okay i'll remember that. Yeah for doing uber eats to make the same amount of money as them just sitting on the couch. But i just didn't wanna be paid off to become a slave to the government. Well oftentimes this less money. You making less money than they are for sending home doing nothing. I mean back at referring to my sister who was a bartender. There's no way she was making six hundred dollars a week. Plus in tips and then the governor lonzo. Yeah you're fired now but we're going to pay you six hundred dollars a week. Plus your previous wage or is seventy five percent of or whatever it came out to and they paid that for a long time they did. It wasn't just like a couple of weeks it was like months. It was all the way into december. I think and then it got reduced an a down to just four hundred dollars or something. It's is absolutely insane this. You can't pay people to sit at home and do nothing. And they were paying self employment people the same thing they were. Yes so. I mean if you're self employed you sell my business is dead. I don't have any business. I have to go on unemployment and the government would it give it to you. Did and now i suspect. We'll see a universal universal basic income. Soon and people don't realize that this is destroying the the usda destroying the currency. I think it's twenty percent of the total. Us money supply in the entire of the united states history was printed last year which means that huge yes inflation level of close to twenty percent in one year alone. So that hyper inflation. It's coming and you're going to be paying seventeen dollars for a loaf of bread or whatever and you're gonna be sitting there thinking boy sharing glad i had the government to give me all this money to pay for it not realizing that the government gives you all of that. Money is what's creating the problem in the first place. I think it gave a lot of people in an incentive to care about the government closing down our businesses. Because like i remember when i was still working at a restaurant and it was like march. Twenty twenty thinking like well. I don't care if the if the restaurant closes 'cause you know then we'll have to work. And maybe i'll maybe i'll go on unemployment or something at first in. I'm sure there was lots of other people thinking the same way dislike. I don't care if my you know if walmart has to close down then we'll have to work. You know i don't understand it. I like being productive. I like working. I do too so it's just like i don't know there's definitely other people other than us out there that would be thinking like out of your thoughts.
