So to Shaun, we finally heard from some people within the Raiders organization on Wednesday afternoon. Can you walk us through who spoke and what they had to say? Hi, everybody. The GM Mike mayock. He was the first person to speak. I'm going to make a brief statement, and then I'm going to open it up for some questions, okay? He opened with a long statement about the history of the Raiders. The way I grew up, the Raiders always stood for diversity. They had the first Latino quarterback, Tom Flores. He's also became the second Latino head coach. The first African American head coach was art shell. The first female CEO was Amy Trask. You can kind of see if the picture days paint in there essentially, this isn't what we stand for. You know, I think he handled it well and spoke well this week. There is a level of empathy, expressed for Gruden across the board that for me personally, I don't necessarily understand the situation, but that's not my call to make. Yeah, I do have emotion and I am sat and to be honest with you, I'm sad for the whole groom family. Not just John. But overall, a consistent message was they have football to focus on their jobs to do that. That is what they're paid to do ultimately. We're professionals. We have a job to do, going forward, what you're going to see is a team that's three and tooth and saying we got to go play Denver in all every single one of our goals is still out there. I want to ask you about a guy who I think a lot of people thought of pretty quickly in the aftermath of all of this. Carl nassib, what do we know about how he's been impacted by all of this? I don't want to speak from too much because they haven't made him available, but may I've told us that he requested a personal day on Wednesday, just kind of gather himself and process everything. He was back at practice on Thursday and so presumably he's feeling like he's in a better place if he's out there. I don't want to infer too much entire he's feeling, but obviously that must be difficult for him to read and see and hear all these things about basically the person that was leading them for the last two seasons since he's been with the franchise and I think that sentiment is shared by at least some black players on the team. So it's all started with a racist comment. And a difference was kind of a little vague, like if you didn't know the history, but when it came to the homophobic comments that grew, there was no filter there. Like it was just plain direct like there is no maybe he meant this maybe no. And so I think maybe they may have hit NASA even harder because of that. You know, you couldn't talk yourself out of it. It's just plain as day when you read those comments. Quarterback Derek Carr tied in Darren Waller all expressed statements of support for Carl. From day one, I told Carl, I love him, and he knows I got his back. So, you know, if anyone won't talk to him, if you want to mess with him, Carl knows that I have his back. I mean, he's pretty much a long wolf. When it comes to that, nobody should be able to tell him how to feel. Nobody should be able to tell him how to grieve. And he deserves to take time for himself because I mean that's a lot to process, you know, somebody that you've been invested in in battle with and you come out and there's a quote that says something like, what was said, it's like, I can't imagine what he must be feeling and I respect him wanting to take his space. And be able to come back clear headed. But it seems like, you know, at least now he's doing better than he initially was. Well, notably absent on Wednesday was the team's owner, Mark Davis, and to show you recently wrote about just how glaring his relative silence has been over the past week. So what exactly has he and hasn't he had to say? I mean, when the initial email came on Friday, he put out a statement condemning it is wrong. And then he just put out the statement Monday after the Gruden resigns and he'd accepted it. So those are only two things that he said, really kind of officially. ESPN statement when he was reached, he said, no comment on the Gruden situation. And he went to some football particulars about the power that GM is going to have moving forward. So he's basically up the mind that he doesn't have to talk about it, I guess. First time that's the owner of a team and you can't just go quiet when something bad happens to the Raiders, right? Especially something bad that would not have happened if it wasn't because of the person that you hired and gave all this power and put it in this position without finding out if they had this kind of thing in their history. And so not just hired, but courted is salivating over this guy for like a decade or whatever it was. Gave him a $100 million contract to go silent. When this kind of thing happens and put it, and I just go silent but put it on other people that had nothing to do with that decision. It's just it's hard to put it in the words, how weak that is and we'll see maybe he'll speak at some point, but as of right now, he does not look great. You know, it seems like the bigger issue here is what this revealed about the culture of the NFL, its owners. But as far as how all of this is impacting the Raiders specifically to Sean, you know these guys on the team fairly well. You follow this team up close. What's your sense of where this locker room is at? And do you think that this team is going to be able to kind of pull together and move forward? Yeah, I don't think they're over it yet, but I do think that their viewing the situation through a clear lands in the sense of, you know, we don't have time to sit here and feel about this. And that's sort of it sounds very insensitive, but that's kind of how football is. You're kind of taught to act that way. You're commended if you act that way if something bad happens and you just perform as if you're completely fine, it's kind of what football is all about to a degree. I have a lot of emotions going through all this. And then it's like, yeah, I gotta prepare for an opponent who happens to have a really talented defense. So it's like, yeah, it is a lot on our plate, but guys are speaking out and recognizing it's okay to be a little stress. It's okay to be like, man, what is it? 'cause it's not normal, it's not, you know, something that happens every day. So I feel like guys did come in today with I think the motivation. It's not so much for the Raiders organization, it's not about the coaches at the plan for, you know, a lot of these guys are young guys on Ricky deals or veterans on one year deals or deals without guarantee money. I try to support their family, and then for that to happen, they have to be able to continue to play moving forward, land more contracts, moving forward years beyond us and that's not going to happen if they go out there and stink it up. So maybe it doesn't go well this season, but I don't think it'll be for a lack of effort. I don't think we're gonna see a team that quits. They may go down and it may not look great, but I think they're gonna be fighting out there. Art xiang thanks.

Or wherever. you. Listen well lindsey. There's one very high profile number one draft pick. Who's sort of caught up in the center of this. Trevor lawrence is now owned. Four's an nfl player and he's lost more games in the pros than he did in his entire college career. At clemson and i think even in his high school career is there a concern around the league that all this chaos and not to mention losing could be stunting his development. I think there's a little bit of that you know. He is a good enough player in prospect. I mean he was very clearly the top player in the strath. There were no concerns coming into the draft about his mental makeup about how he might handle losing their questions. Just we've never seen it. He's never lost a lot but there weren't questions about like. Oh this is the guy who is going to. Shutdown of his team starts losing. I think there are questions about you. Know just the system that's been put around him and you know if this is a generational talent you know the type of prospect that so many people in the league believed he was going to be. You want to see him. Put in the best situation and that at this point clearly hasn't happened and you have to think about. How many ghetto. Brilliant offensive football coaches. There are out there. Who would do anything at this point to coach a player like trevor lawrence. That if you kind of keep going with this guy who's getting everything wrong at some point. You have to make the right move for your franchise quarterback so you know. I don't think he's broken. You know. I don't think trevor lawrence's at tremendous risk of you know completely stunting his development. Because you know you're seeing even in the loss of the bengals last week you're seeing him make these kind of jaw-dropping throws down passes spending grab is. He works against trae wings and a completion from trevor. Wars of fifty yards. You reminded of the type of talent that he is. It's just is he going to be put in a situation to succeed and right now. His coaching staff isn't helping him. And he's kind of having to be like the mature face of this franchise and you know the adult in the room. When he's one of the youngest players on their team will finally lindsey. We're going to ask you to forecast into the future a little bit. Where do you see this going. And how much longer can urban meyer last. As the jaguars head coach. Yeah i mean. I don't see him being the head coach. There long-term i think there's a lot of ways that it could potentially end. I mean look. They could win a couple of games. The titans lost to the jets last week. So you know sometimes you do see teams that are in the midst of turmoil having the lake. It's us against the world banding together. But they're just not built to win yet they have tremendous roster deficiencies so if you combine the losing with the embarrassing off field issues that are going on with your head. Coach all of these unforced errors. Urban meyer just repeatedly keeps walking into. I think at some point shod khan is going to have to admit that he made a mistake and do something. The question is how does it end. Is it a firing. is it a resignation. Is it a medical personal leave. That comes up. Is it a college football job. Visit stepping way to spend more time with his family mean. I think there's a lot of those situations where we don't know exactly how it's going to end. But it seems to becoming more of a win. It.

Nfl's huddle up. Let's talk obesity campaign. So jason tell us a little about that campaign in some of the challenges that it's facing it's essentially it's a campaign to use former. Nfl players to reach out to each other to talk about issues related to obesity acknowledging the problem and seeing things that they can do to help each other. If you ever play defensive line or office lining nfl at some point in time you gain too much weight. The question is how quickly did you get it. under control. In general the population obesity affects about forty two percent of adults twenty or and over but among retired players. That goes up to above fifty percents. And just in general. The guys were used to line two doctors their whole lives to stay on the field for now that they're done they don't want any part of a doctor most mid off freight going to the doctor because we're afraid of what they may say. Feel no shame. Feel note no problem reaching out to professional and in seeking that advice in getting that help you go there you know some of these stats. They have for nfl alumni to show them that number one. You're not alone in this and number two. We do have help for you. Isn't that what we're supposed to do is help each other. The nfl has been criticized for years for not taking care of their former players in this is not by any means a you know a solution to everything but it's a star in the right direction of saying you know what we notice a problem. Let's start to help these guys. Who for so many years we washed on the field and now they need our help. The nfl is doing a better job now. In terms of making sure former players have access to primary care they get you know physicals give blood work. Done all those things you need to do. And to along with it.

You know this was the nfl alumni association. This is what they drove in terms of. We've got to help our former players. The nfl is not known as itself for helping its former players. I mean we got counting stores of you know whether it be c. t. e. health issue the former players. Basically saying someone. Please help me and it at some point. Even the nfl has to acknowledge they gotta start doing some things to improve. And that's where i think. We see the improvements to primary care for former players. That's been a big bat on those players of thought for years. You know football the violent game and even if you only play for a short time you leave football the different wedding. Leave any other sport probably. It's all.

"Club. Sports in obviously famously lebron james agent now a lot of other guys and so they meet average his house. Josh harris the managing partner of the sixers is there. And so it's one thing for a player to send word through their agent to the gm who then talks to the owner that they don't wanna play at a certain place anymore. This was a lot more on the nose. This was ben simmons looking josh harrison. The eye and saying i've done this chapter is done. And that's with their amaury in the room. Ellen brand doc rivers. They thought that a deal would get done by the time. The draft had come and gone so then that doesn't happen and so you know now what you're seeing. It's a staring contest where each side is trying to essentially wrestle over leverage. You know the sixers would love nothing more than for ben to fake it until they all make it. If that makes sense come back up your trade value by playing well and trust us. We're going to put you on a spot. Will the problem is there's no trust and he's not in the state of mind clearly to come back and play that kind of a role or has any interest in so he chooses to stay away when i reported last week that he's done playing with joel embiid and that it's nothing personal but that he just simply doesn't see a fit anymore. You're trying to up the temperature. Try to compel their more to finally given and say i'm gonna say uncle amid trade you for whatever bag of chips comes my way and that's why in terms of this staring contest component. You know this thing is is certainly an alzheimer. So do you buy this idea that it really is just about a fundamental difference in basketball styles and he are just not a good fit or do you think there is in fact some personal conflict between the two like if you had to point to a primary thing that's driving all of this. Is it that fundamental basketball difference or is it something else i mean. This is not the sexy answer. I just think it's a two part thing in their layered together. It's the personal dynamic between ben and joel but it is basketball. It's the way joel. Plays in stark contrast to the way that ben plays and the kind of talent that he brings to the table accentuates benz weaknesses at his core. I think it is about basketball now. Personality wise you know the jimmy butler saga to me you know. Joel and jimmy butler her two alpha males who are wired very similarly. That is the kind of guy the joe wants to play with. Jimmy butler is on his way out of philadelphia and on his way down to south beach as joel just kind of came out and shared with the world last week. He basically blames. Ben simmons for jimmy butler not coming back to philly. Jimmy was you know we want to but that's a lot of baggage to get through for two players. You know what i mean. And that's where. I do agree with ben. I think this thing is a wrap in terms of them accomplishing anything together. But it does At its core it is about basketball. We recently saw daryl. Morey compared simmons off season to aaron rodgers. Famous off wash last night a player leave their team to victory. Where thousand pounds of digital inquiries spill on how much. He would never play for that team again. So look every situation is different. The we have a lot of optimism that we can make it work here and you know sort of suggesting that he's going to be back in and doing his thing again. If no trade happens. I read that as there are more. He just trying to present a certain image so that he can have more leverage in trade negotiations sure. Is that your read on the situation or is there actually a possibility that they're going to work these things out no. I don't see the possibility. I don't blame daryl for kind of reaching for that cop if you will There are threads there that are accurate. The one distinction. Aaron rodgers has won a championship with the packers. The routes between aaron and that community and that fan base and the love affair that has taken place is just wildly different than benz experience in philly. And that's where the two cops completely separate. It's becoming pretty evident. That ben has not enjoyed a lot of his time in philly so the love affair component that you think about with aaron rodgers is not there the connection and the roots are not there as saying based on your reporting at this moment. What seems like the most likely way for this whole thing to resolve. Whereas ben simmons most likely to be playing whenever he puts a uniform back on well i mean. That's the compelling part of this things that we talk about the personal dynamics we talk about all the subplots and everything and man unders you keep getting to the nuts and bolts of it from a basketball transaction trade. Talk standpoint in for me anyway. You still end up. Shrugging your shoulders and just saying i don't see it. You know recently Friend and colleague. Keith bond pay. The philly enquirer had reported that the timber wolves pacers cavaliers pistons raptors and spurs where the most recent teams still inquiring about ben. You have some real motivation on the timber. Wolves side to get a deal done. You got a guy heading their front office as such in gupta who came from houston has a relationship with darryl a good relationship. You maybe that aids the talks. You know the pacers come to mind you know. There's some trade chatter out there in general about malcolm brogden and how long he's going to be a pacer. But the damian lillard scenario. I kind of becoming convinced. That's the only one. And i know. Daryl pretty well like. That's really the only one that i think is a no brainer for darrell. But the problem is neil. O'shea shea the blazers. Gm is trying to salvage. That situation dame has changed his tune in portland at least for now. All those things for me lead to the idea that i don't see a trade coming anytime soon and we get surprise all the time in this league. Maybe i'll be wrong the right now. I don't really see a substantive leader in that clubhouse the other thing honors we haven't gotten into though there amaury at the end of his rockets tenure did a trade that to this day. I know for a fact. He's not a fan of and knows that he shouldn't have done chris. Paul to the thunder and exchange for russell. Westbrook in hindsight is a terrible trade. That matters to me here. Daryl's as competitive as any executive and league. And i think the idea that he is going to go from a big trade like the chris. Paul westbrook deal to ben simmons deal where he takes a bath because of the pressure applied by ben and gets taken again in a trade. I don't see it happening. Your miles go.

What you do with your portfolio. Download the latest episode and follow at schwab dot com slash washington wise or wherever. You listen all right lindsay. The second thing we wanted to ask you about today is the. nfl's much talked about taunting enforcement. I can you give us a little background here. How exactly did this new point of emphasis as the nfl is calling it. Come about yes so every off season the. Nfl has a series of officiating meetings. They talk about all of the rules from last year. All of the officiating points. What worked what didn't work and out of the coaches subcommittee. This year came a request to enforce the taunting roles. That are on the books. There were group coaches who felt that post shenanigans for lack of a better term had gotten out of hand in the last couple of seasons book. That was a fight between bears. Receiver giovane whims and saints. Cornerback chauncey gardiner. Johnson chelsea garner. Johnson is an instigator. He has a long history of hogan and poking and poking at guys and trying to get in your head and trying to cause drama you know it started at built up that built kind of over seasons and wins sucker punched. That's that's just not smart football. Think about it in the locker room. I guess your fourth. I think another incident that really kind of led to this was tyreek hill. Flashing the peace sign at the tampa bay bucks secondary november. And then a buck safety doing it. Back to tyreek hill in the super bowl. The first incident. No flag antoine. Winfield junior was flagged for this in the super bowl. So basically what the nfl. The competition committee and they're kind of football operations executives told the referee in cruise was. This is the list of what is considered taunting. And you should throw a flag whenever you see it so as things like spinning a football at a player after a play getting in somebody else's face directly like let's say you're a linebacker who makes the big tackle on a running back and you stand over his body afterwards kind of flex your muscles. Those things are all considered taunting. There's also some language penalty is that are considered taunting. Basically the line has been anything that is directly aimed at an opponent so whether that's a physical act or chasing him down to say something very specific you know that would be considered a flag so that was really what they wanted to crack down on this season. Well i think it's safe to say that. The heavier enforcement of these rules hasn't exactly gone down well with a lot of people worth role in sports. This absolute trash. Listen guy is truly attacking you and your persons. We don't care like we were to freaking horn not to be able to get up and celebrate man. Life gone way way out of bounds. I'm out of control. I'm glad that is well because you know the. Nfl has long had this reputation of the nfl standing for the no fun league and a lot of the stuff that we saw flagged especially in weeks one and two is stuff. That kind of makes the nfl fun right. I mean it's it's guys celebrating. Its guys making a big tackle and flexing or it's a guy making a big first down and having an emphatic gesture or spinning a ball. That might have spun a little bit too closely to the defensive back things that we're like okay. This is fine. So i think that was why it was kind of negatively received was that a lot of it was like okay. Are we really. Do we really have to call that. We really harming the game. What are you hearing from people within the league. What have players and coaches had to say about this new initiative. I think they're split. Players aren't happy about it. Because i think they believe that this is emotional stuff. This is a very emotional game. And you know you're trying to kind of take their instincts out of it. What's been really interesting. Is that coaches have. Been very much in favour about it. We kind of surveyed the league last week our network of beat writers and almost universally were in favor of it. The one quibble. Sean payton said that his only concern about it was that it wasn't necessarily enforced equally across the league. So you know there were some crews that were calling more than others. Some that were sledding. Some go and all he wanted was consistency. And that is a fairly common complaint. Whenever there is a rule. Change or a point of emphasis. Change that you know it. Just can vary from crew to crew and coaches just want some sort of consistency in the way that things are called it. Seems like we saw a ton of these calls early on but now things have leveled off a little bit. Maybe because so many people have been complaining. But do you think that's the case. What did the numbers show. So we're right now at thirteen taunting penalties that have been called through week three and consider there were only ten all of last season but there was a big drop off from week to week. Three there were eight and week to only two last week in week. Three and i will say anecdotally. I was at the rams bucks game in los angeles and there were probably at least three incidents that i saw in that game. That happened in week. Two they probably would have been called. I saw a guy spent football at somebody. There was the big hit. That terrell lewis put on rob gronkowski when we kind of thought that rob gronkowski is like ribs might have been broken or his lungs collapsed in trail lewis kind of stood over him. Maybe that's a sign that they're reeling it back in a little bit. They're kind of refocusing. And figuring out exactly what is taunting what the clear definition of taunting is and. Maybe they're just kind of getting a little bit more clarity there. In lastly lindsey. What comes next for this. Crackdown on taunting. Do you expect.

One of the things people were most excited to see this weekend was just in fields making his debut as the starter in chicago. But the game didn't exactly go fields way against a very aggressive brown's pass rush. What were your main takeaways. From his performance in this game under pretty tough circumstances. I wrote an article before the season kind of supporting matinees decision to start the season with andy dalton as a starter and some of my main reasons were that offensive line is just terrible and when you put a rookie quarterback in front of a line like that he can start to build bad habits. You could really destroy his confidence pressure fields and trouble two and a half sacks in the first half. When you're seeing the pressure of the game feels too fast. Your ice start dropping towards the pass rush. And we've seen quarterbacks in situations like this just shell shocked and never really recovered from it racing career in the backfield florida. That's gonna be a game. That's for him tufted. Forget guys couldn't get opened his seeing pressure in his face right away. I just couldn't understand why a matinee did not want to call some zone. Read option plays for fields and take advantage of his ability and protect off the line. A little bit so it went any dealt and comes back. Maybe the right decision is to put them back in while this offense lying gets sorted out because you just don't wanna expose your rookie quarterback two games like that too often. We'll after losing their first game of the year to the chiefs. Cleveland has won their last two games and pretty convincing fashion albeit against two pretty bad teams odell beckham. junior also returned against the bears for the first time since tearing his acl last october. So what did you make of the browns in this game. Are there signs that this team could be better than they were last year off. The blind and running game is still elite. You know we saw that today. Just pounded that bears front brexit. This is the first game. I really watch mayfield and while stats pretty accurate. The first couple of weeks but he missed launch passes in this game. That were very makeable. Mayfield throws it was intended for the rookie shorts but not even close. It'll bring up another third down for the browns to really ascend. It depends on the development of baker mayfield and if he develop and become that quarterback. That's kind of an at ten. Twelve range than steve could be really good. But this game. I was not very impressed by mayfield for the seem to be a legit super bowl contender. He asked play better. And finally ted. The afc. North is looking pretty chaotic. At the moment the ravens managed to just squeaked the lion's on record setting field goal by justin tucker and the bengals put a pretty good beating on the steelers in pittsburgh much to my chagrin deep into the end zone. Oh my goodness what. A crab thirty four yard touchdown throw thirty. Four yard bomb throwing right here by borough to his college teammate at lsu. What an incredible common after all that. There's now a three way tie at the top with the steelers lagging behind at one and two. Is this division race wide open in your mind or is there a clear. Favourite here is wide open. I i don't see a team that's really gonna run away with it. I think if the ravens get healthy they have a chance at winning the vision. The ravens are dealing with a ton of injuries at guys miss this game because cove and they somehow found a way to win. This could be one of those sneaky important games later on so steelers still have a really strong defense. But that offense is not sustainable. I mean it's just hard watching. Then you know. I was a big fan of how he played in his prime. And when you watch them now just nowhere near the quarterback that he was and his physical limitations is really really holding back his offense. I'm curious to see if the steelers think about sitting big ben and looking at one of their backups. You know whether it's route off or haskins to see maybe sparked this offense.

"mike townsend" Discussed on The Lead

"Know those things we talked about with his family and just sort of how he grew up in hundred goodwin was another guy grew up in a small town texas and lived on a farm and he told the story about how their friends wouldn't wanna go sleep over at his house and people wouldn't wanna go sleep over at dan campbell's house. Because you go to bed early. You'd wake up in the morning. They throw breakfast on the table. And soon as you were done you had to go work on the farm until sundown. And that was how you kind of repaid them for letting you sleep there and eat there. I was raised the exact same way and there was no leisurely weekends where you slept in late and you sat around on the couch playing video games in the air conditioning. That forgive my french here but that shit didn't exist and if it did it wouldn't have been allowed what you've seen it. The lines facility has the cowboy persona been on display at all. It doesn't seem like dan campbell would go out of his way to hide that. But how have you seen it. Come out yeah i mean. It's certainly the way that he talks. And i think we had a press conference. I don't even remember how it came up. But someone had asked him what his first job was and he talked about working a chicken. Just like fucking chickens and getting them ready to be cooked in. That was like in pretty graphic detail for of oko just press conference. I learned how to clean chicken. And i could do it blind over and over and i'll never do it again so i appreciate everybody. That does that type of work because it got old. Quick people describe him as a cowboy but then we talked to his friends and they would say his dad's a real cowboy like the weather woes and the hat that he's had for one hundred years and like you know you see his fingers have been in the dirt forever and that's where it all comes from so i think again it's all very real. It's not a show just to be tough for re different in front of the camera. Like this is just how he's always been. You guys actually wrote in your story. That dan campbell at one point as an nfl player actually lived in a camper. So can you tell us about that. Yeah i was talking to billy lucci. We runs a texas sports site. Billy was talking to you about how at one point. When dan campbell was just starting to think about being a coach he came down in texas. And billy was talking about how at night. I would go over to see dan in his trailer. And i said well hang on trailer and he was. Yeah it was like a camper lived in a camper trailer park in college station. This is winning millions nicer trailer trade and we sat up in there. And it's like what's what's he got in there at that point but can the trail of just kind of beer here. I don't know a lot of beer and like he just keeps talking talking. These sausage violate the last year that he played in new orleans with the saints for the super bowl. Champs did the exact same thing liberty camper outside the practice facility because he left his family and they had a beautiful house in frisco texas or the cowboys facility was he was going to new orleans for just a one year and didn't want to spend any money he didn't have to despite being a millionaire and said i'm going get to scamper. Put it in a campground. That's what he did for that year. And i would guess he probably did that. Maybe once or twice somewhere else do just guess. Because that's kind of stand campbell. Do we know for a fact that dan campbell is definitely not living in a camper trailer right now. I don't i mean he might have one just like when he needs to get away and needs a date under the stars or something and he goes and tucked away in there. I get the impression that he's probably in the office quite a bit. But yeah i mean i wouldn't put it past in that. He's got a little setup somewhere that he can just go hide in. It's actually in the parking lot of the lines facility. Oh okay so despite what. We'll call the wild side of his personality. You both actually talked to a number of former teammates. Who sounded really convinced about dan campbell. The football mind since he got hired with the lions there have been questions of how qualified he has to be a head coach. Just as an example. He's never been an offense coordinator and nick. You talked to former. Nfl quarterback drew henson who with campbell in dallas and detroit. He had an interesting insight about campbell in his background. As tight end one of the main reasons chris. I wanted to talk to drew. Edison was that he was a unique situation in that know. Drew henson played college football at michigan. And then he goes and plays pro baseball with the yankees and he doesn't play football for like but i think it's three seasons and when as guest to dallas without being around football for so long you know he's trying to get themselves sort of reacclimated to everything and he really did credit gamble for helping him sort of learn what changes in offensive football had sort of happened in that lag time but also you know he really went into detail about you when you play tight end. And he compared it to baseball compared to catcher and the position of being catcher. Where you head your hand of everything in the sense that You know they're influential run. Game run plane. Renske task team has protection literally. No every single thing. He basically said if the quarterback is the number one person out there in terms of communication that titan is number two so we think often that quarterback is the person who and rightly so understands so much about football and they always make the best coaches right. We always think that. I think that some of these guys pointed out. Diana's are right there too. I mean especially in modern day. So dan campbell with quite an advantage there. I think that people may be overlooked. That's actually one of the things. I think we wanted to find out the most in doing the story is just is he just this cartoon of football coach or is there something more to it and again everyone that we talked to. I mean i spoke with debt win. Who played with him at texas. Am you know they go up against each other in practice. And it'd be heeded the way you would expect it to be with dan campbell involved but then you know if campbell would lose a rep. He pull people aside and say well. Explain to me what you saw there. What did we tip on offense. Or what did you notice that. Kinda let you get the jump on us. And so every time there was this fiery personality and he wanted to win and he was mad when he didn't but behind all of it was this you know the xs and os were kind of churn in his head the whole time and that kept coming up every time we talked to someone. You're not just getting the personality. You're not just getting someone who's going to give a great locker room speech. He knows his football and he's evolved as he's been in this game to kind of fit what modern. Nfl offenses and defenses. Look like i think that's also been one of the more interesting things to kind of track about his development from know that young guy in texas to a player to coach certainly the players. He's coaching now. Are different than the types of guys would have been around in the locker two decades ago and so. I think that that's been one of the things that's been kind of interesting to watch just to see how he's tweet this cowboy personality to make it work and make it relatable players that he's around believe it or not.

Or wherever you listen. The lions played high scoring game against the forty niners in week one but they were on the losing side of it. Forty one to thirty three. What stood out to you. Both on the positive and negative side there from dan campbell's lines coaching debut. Or i think the two positives are one. They ran the ball really well. Which is what you know dan. Campbell wants the identity of his team to be is one that can win in the trenches and can run the football and that's pretty old school but again i think there's some new school elements to way. They're trying to accomplish but that's first and foremost how he wants to win. Football game and the other thing is you know they lost by eight. They were down by twenty four at the two minute warning in the fourth quarter. And and that's gonna be a big theme for this team all year. Because they're not very good. And i think they know they're not very good. They know it's going to be a couple years before they're really contender. So can you get guys to show up and keep fighting every game. That's really is something that people of detroit will embrace even if this is a bad team and we saw that in the opener. Yeah they were down twenty four with two minutes left. They had the ball down. Eight with fifteen seconds left in a chance to tie the game officials roaring back to eight points and so that speaks. I think to just some of that attitude. He's trying to bring and you know if there are guys on that roster who aren't going to buy in they aren't going to be here very long we've probably seen a few of them out already in training camp. I think that's a big part of this. It's just figuring out who's going to go all in with him. I think that's a lot of what they're using this year for the big one for me. Positive wise has been in through the first game and through all the training camp. All the rookies. That dan campbell inbred homes of reading here in their first season. All the draft picks been good. None of them have had disasters. None of them have fallen behind. Penny soules one of the best offensive tackles the nfl. During his debut start the negative would be for me. Quarterback is still very much a wide open unanswered question. Here you know. And it wasn't exactly a stellar. Start for jared goff and it's hard to say right now that he's a long-term answer so until you really have that. It's hard to build a complete picture. But i think the really early pieces that they've brought in here so far have been positive. They play the packers on monday night. A team that got pretty embarrassed by the saints in their opener. Thirty eight to three. What are you looking for in that matchup. How much caffeine. Dan campbell needs to get to midnight. Normally what i do is i get. I'll get to vinci. I go you know. Starbucks get to vinci of the pipe with two shots in them so black. I'm both. That's what i come in with. Start the day so yeah i think again realistically. This is not a great team. They're like eleven or twelve underdog in that game monday night. So you're trying to look for those baby steps as jared goff going to be better. Is the defense going to be more competitive. Because the forty niners kinda ran up and down the field on them for at least the first two two and a half quarters in that game so i think they're looking for progress. Dan campbell said like you might have set it in the introductory press conference but if not he said it several times since then you know we just want to get to the fourth quarter with a chance. That's it finally four both of you knowing what you now know about dan campbell. If we do project a little bit down the road say a couple years from now. Is this whole thing. More likely to be a circus in detroit or is this a team. That's on its way to getting. Its act together ulcer. It's hard to say. But i think that i don't think it'll be chaos. My sense is is that day cable is all in here. He was the guy who went to his agents. And i wanna talk to the lions front office. Get me the lions job. No one that. I know of runs around and tells her agent so i think he's all in on this and i think that there's a lot of people remain talked lions fans and they're kind of like hey. This doesn't work. I don't know what the hell we're going to do. Because you do have a guy that seems to understand the plight of the franchise. But i also think that if that continues. And he's honest with people that. I think the fan base will be willing to take longer ride with dan campbell than maybe a normal coach. Who isn't willing to do that. I think that this year you just whatever happens. This year happens. Let's just get a little bit better next year. He hoped to start building up some wins and then two years from now you say all right we gotta get something going here. That's about the window. I think that's realistic. For really any new coach and gm but especially in this case with all the work that they had to do kind of a race what was leftover from the previous redeem.

The shanghai stock exchange a said that it's going to be suspending. The listing after the company. That was going to be the woes biggest. Ipo and that was blocked and from then he'll regulators in china's signal that we're going to be much tougher and technology companies. We saw numerous fines. We saw punishments companies being called up for infringing. Consumer rights spilled out monopolies in certain areas. So the video game. Carps follows all of that when you look at the share prices of these companies recently. They're fallen kind of dramatically but it also feels a little bit like the central government is maybe trying to scale back some of their growth. And i wonder if you think it all. There is a recognition that some of the you know runaway economic growth of the past. Fifteen years in china had real downsides to it like is this just about technology and video games or is it about trying to find a more sustainable economic model at what the government has been saying that they recognize that there has been some excesses awesome. You bet practices that have resulted off the growth of these technology companies for example. They're really concerned about data because a lot of these technology companies. They they know everything about you right because we rely on alibaba tencent's app said you other technology other tech companies to manage our everyday lives in china so the government is worried about consumer rights. This'll show concern about the treatment of gateway focus in china. China relies a lot on yoga. Deliveryman man that you in china is very cheap. It's very it's very a quick to get something delivered and over the years. That's that's been a great growth driver. But at the same time this bidding facing a recognition that allow these workers they don't have the basic protections insurance they don't have adequate respirate. Sometimes you know a lot of these regulatory curbs are frankly things that i think. Western governments would like to impose on their tech companies as well. I mean yeah. That's that's the interesting parallels that you see a lot of a lot of the discussions that we're having here it's not. It's not things that you know in the us on. Europe unheard off for example in in the us in europe. That's a law chatter as well about regulating the gig. Economy companies right. China's been able been doing here as well. So yeah i mean it's it's quite fascinating to look at the global regulatory picture now and see how that's progressing in different parts of the world. Is it possible to look at some of these changes and get a sense of what the central government or xi jinping in particular want for china in the next decade or is that is that over kind of oversimplifying. What they've been saying. A lot is how they want to bring culture bringing the economy Bring these companies back to socialist values. China already has pretty strict censorship policies. Where where things are on internet that i seen to violate socialist values. A- sensit- pretty quickly but or analysts. What china watches have been have been absorbing what the last couple months of crackdown. This does a lot more intentional effort to bring different pots of society of cultured actively to place. I wonder what a socialist internet looks like like. That's such a fascinating kind of way of thinking about it. What could that model actually end up. Being on tuesday they put a document they sit well guidelines for the development of what they call a civilized civilized cyberspace. So what they outline document was stronger. Control over content. Bet influences should be dealt with model workers model citizens in china should be should be the highlight. The internet should be used to better spread socialist values. There is a vision for what the internet should be like from beijing. Brenda go thank you so much. Thanks lizzie brenda. Go covers technology for reuters. That is it for us today. Tvd is produced by.

Cristiano renaldo continues to be wrapped up in a legal battle over sexual assault allegations on the part of a woman here in the us. Have there been any concerns about his arrival in manchester coming with a bit of a dark cloud is that something. That's been part of the conversation around his return to menu. The some people has been part of the conversation. I mean we've got a lot of comments on emails from subscribers alaskan wa approach civil as so we've written a piece that is not that explains the current situation and as you say the allegations that have been made which he denies they oversee all very serious allegations. It doesn't seem to affect his time. Events is oversee these allegations came out publicly whilst he was interior and he was able to navigate through them. You know he spoke about them. The club spoke about them. But as something that is you know. I think we will also be attuned to expose. We'll have to wait and see what happens in. The civil colts have in america. Well turning back to on the field stuff you know. It's hard to imagine any team with cristiano. Ronaldo in the lineup would not be built around him and his unique skill set but he's also thirty six years old so laurie. What clues do we have at this time about. What exactly his role will be within the united team and how much. The team will adapt their style of play to him. Social gave us a good clue after the game against wolves. Pajamas is evolved. As a player he used to play wide right. wide left. Front is more of a center forward for me at the moment. yeah definitely. I want him in the box. I want him scoring goals. So he sees him as a centre forward no songs about inbetween down the wing and plan on the left and on the right. They probably need updating. Maybe there's a new sun could be so wait till expel him just going now. Well i think he's movement is something in. The box. Is something that you can really utilize because social has been crying out full stryker. He says willing to break his nose score a goal when aldo clearly likes the way he looks. I don't think it'd be breaking. These knows necessarily but he has a really great physique about the way the johnson schools powerful head is something that the united haven't really hard for. While i think united w- english will enjoy having the guy in the box where they can pick him out if they cross he will make his mission together on the end of it. I do think it leaves. So shaw with a dilemma over. Who to pick you know you think of that as well. You've got him on. Shell got marcus rush. You got a lot of players that will want to play regularly. It's up to so shot. Skeet them all happy. Soul shaw said is no salmon aldo to sit on the bench show. I would imagine that. He is dying sensible. Would you know pretty much every week. And lastly laurie man. United have been off to a rather promising start even before. Cristiano ronaldo's arrival. So what do you think his presence. Now make menu premier league favorites favors because they haven't won the title since left twenty th day so there's a long time the on phil jones who have not got city players regulate you've got liverpool plays even plays less recently much nazi play so i think not something to be said. An incredible radio attacking taliban they've got to be contenders this season now which i would probably say chelsea favorites that present because they have a really strong squad and good monitoring to discount liverpool city the reigning champion.

"Today is Kyle Hill CEO of home here. It's great to have you on the show, bro. Happy to hear. So tell us a little about what is home here. I know you guys are in the healthcare space. Yeah. We're a non medical home care providers, so we provide anything from activities of daily living to personal care, companionship, meal preparation services around helping seniors, um, live healthier lives in their homes. Okay. And you guys have raised how much money 23 Million close familiar? Okay, So obviously that's a big number. And you're 29 years old, but I know you haven't always had success. We'll touch on that in a little bit, but share a little more about your journey and your story about some of the things you started doing. You mentioned something earlier where you raised a quarter million dollars for something that ended up not succeeding. Could you touch on that? Yeah. So I've started a number of different companies, most of which, with my co founder, Mike Townsend. The most. The previous company to home hero was called flow tablets, Mobile ordering and payments application for bars and nightclubs. And, um, you know, it was a very It was one of our first time raising money was the first time hiring employees, so there's a lot of lot of first time mistakes, and I think one of the biggest mistakes that we made in that company was really scaling before you really had product market fit. And so we had expanded our company from Los Angeles to San Francisco to Denver, and we really hadn't got Working in one city and and the other thing was, I never felt like we were solving a really big problem. It was. It was kind of scratching their own itch, but it wasn't really changing the world. And so that was kind of frustrating, and when it all kind of started to when, when our money start to dry up a little bit, and we never quite found product market theater business model We actually were very transparent in the way that we published all of our mistakes. Remember you said that on your website. You guys laid out like a timeline of what you did, right? What should wrong little postmortem and, um, it turned out to be one of the best things we could have done because we got a lot of respect from the tech community for it. TechCrunch wrote one of the longest articles they've ever written, called the Rise and fall when most people would be terrified to put out work saying, Hey, look, here is a timeline of how we failed and things that are right. You guys did it and actually praised and rewarded for And I think one of the reasons was is that Mike and I didn't feel like we were dumb entrepreneurs. We felt like we were very smart, but we made some key mistakes that if we could have done it over again, we put we wouldn't have made. And so I think that investors looking to to help us take on our next challenge knew that we were going to make those same mistakes again. So what was one of the biggest lessons? You said? You have a timeline of the things you did write the things that are wrong. And you said You got a huge lesson from that. What was it? Well, one of them, I think is what I what I mentioned is just solve a big problem. Don't throw. Uh, you know me. You can't scale before you have product market fit and so with home hero right now we have. We've been in business for three years, and we're still in just California and understand that there's a lot more. We still have to learn about California before we scale. The third. One is really just making sure that you provide tremendous value to both sides of the market. And so that was something that I a year into flow top. I realized that we weren't really delivering a huge value two bars and a huge value to consumers, and it was really nice to have product. It wasn't one of those can't live without products. And so I think that was one of the reasons I wanted to go into health care because I knew I'd be solving real problems. That are facing Americans. Every day. We're gonna get started with our 62nd CEO, where I'm going to rapid fire some questions at you. Are you ready? I think so. Alright. Here we go. Who's your favorite entrepreneur? You want to ask? What is your favorite book? Black Swan. What is the first happy Check in the morning? Probably Twitter. What keeps you up at night? Regulation changes. How do you unplug? Exercise biking? Soccer? What's your favorite movie? The Matrix? If you could have a superpower, what would it be? Visibility. Who's your favorite superhero? Batman. Last thing you do before bed. Check Twitter. If you had one extra hour in the day. How do you use it? Um, spend time with my family. If you can go anywhere in the world would be a visa. Um, let's see what your favorite book Black swan is seem to live. What's your biggest pet peeve? Lack of attention to detail. Describe yourself forward. Tenacious. Alright, tenacious. Let's go with that. How important is it to be tenacious as an entrepreneur? Extremely important. It's the it's the driving force. It's your mission that really gets you up in the morning. You all right? Is that it? Yeah, There's just a lot more to it. There's a lot more digging. I think, especially around fundraising. You just have to be very, very tenacious. You have to take criticism with a grain of salt. You can't get too personal and you just have to accept filling multiple multiple times before you succeed. You said fundraising, and that's something that you've been. Relatively successful at you've raised close to her over $23 million by the age of 29 show that some of the best tips you have for raising money. Well, I think fundraising really comes to comes down to just knowing your business more than anyone else in the world. And there's there shouldn't ever be a question that you get asked in a fundraising, meaning that you've never been asked before, And so in the early days that it is is very rough. And so what I started doing is writing down every single question that I've ever been asked at the end of every meeting you said you made flashcards flashcards. Yeah, and you Start reviewing them. And the other trick is if your fundraising with somebody else they should know all the answers do and so we meeting your partner? Yeah. And so in my case, Mike who are usually going to fundraising with he could answer all the questions exactly the same way as I would. So you guys can be like interrogation. You know that. We know the answer to the t exactly the way that we answer all those questions and so Um, that that's a big one. The other one is really When it's when it's not accessible when it's not transparent when it's not affordable, and those are the things that I really wanted to change about home care, and it's what gets me up every morning. Do you guys focus and put an emphasis on? The Y You know, you can talk about the what and the how, But the Why is always so important. And Simon Sinek is famous for his talk on the power of Why So do you make sure that you sit down? Not only with your executives, but also your entire team and re establish what your mission and your Lioce? Yeah, it's extremely important. We're very mission driven as a company, and I think we have a one of the benefits of home here as you actually, we offer pretty steep discounts. On home care for If you work there, you work there and and the reason we do. That is so they take more pride in what they're building. Do you find that people are getting in because they have somebody that they're passionate about her? Maybe something. You have personal stories. But what I found is that people engineers, especially their biggest fears, they build. Something never gets used..

The post pandemic returned to the office might look like and what it would mean for. Work life balance. The sort of symbol of remote work during the pandemic has been these digital nomads people roaming around the country and their van getting wi fi to run. You know to to send a bunch of emails in the morning and then going for a hike in the afternoon and it sounds like that is sort of a red herring like those people do not represent where we're going as a society. It's probably a more gentle transition and and that also means on the other hand that we're not gonna see people streaming out of new york city and the bay area into you know rust belt cities in Upstate new york or the midwest. I think it's too early to say that this that digital no-man's are red herring. Just i think it's just really going to depend on the cultures that develop and what they what they allow what they value and ultimately what they end up rewarding. Because if you're a digital nomad but you keep missing promotions and you're not getting paid bonuses and you're not valued well i can imagine you're going to get the message that even though the policy says you can do it. If it's not working out in practice you're going to run right back to the office. This is why we're at this kind of like very fragile to latin this moment where a lot of managers and ceos who already have a lot of power will have a lot of power to figure out how work is going to shape people's lives next. Okay but here's here's the flipside of that You know obviously some of the first. Movers are the ones that are saying. All right back to the office enough of this You know Intermediary long intermediary period of uncertainty Talking about some of these big banks for example that have been leading the charge on getting getting workers back but in the wall street journal. I'm reading that some other banks. Such a city group are waiting Because they think that they are going to be able to poach talented people who value remote work or the ability to work remotely some of the time as surveys show many workers do and at firms that hold back and that have looser policies are going to be able to attract more talented people. I mean i think that's the flip side and maybe now that we know that this is on the table. As the kind of thing you can bargain for realistically that firms will just have to follow follow talented workers in establishing these policies. That's a fascinating and kind of exciting thing. Yeah this sort of the race for talent could really reshape this. But guess what i wonder. Cultures are so strong that even if you have this kind of short term competition for talent like who can be more flexible and who can allow for more digital nomads and give you more freedom in wellbeing will that last if city rupe and others are sort of holding back wanting to poach talent will then they better deliver you can attract all these people who want flexible work. You can promise them flexible work but in two years if they're not on the same track and they're not promoted and you know you haven't figured out how to manage and work with them and value their work you know you're gonna lose them or you know you need to do the work to change your culture to make that real. I think it's important to that. We recognize. I know you do. How limited this conversation is to a certain and sort of elite sector of worker. I do wonder to some extent if we're putting the blame for some society-wide problems such as the lack of affordable childcare low wages cultural problems Gendered expectations if we're if we're putting those problems onto the back of the workplace when it in fact there are much more widespread phenomenon and if white collar workers get to work from home that may help them with their child care needs but it does nothing for everybody else but actually i would argue. That working from home doesn't help white collar workers with their child care needs because basically working from home means that you have to work and do childcare and in the last year and home schooling. and that's just unworkable. But i think you raise a really important point and that is we need to see work as part of this bigger picture and work only works when it has all of the supporting infrastructure. That actually makes it work and that means care and that means care for children for you know schools for after care. It means you know care for disabled Family members that means care for the elderly. And we we have no care infrastructure in this country. It's it's abominable we. We're the only country that doesn't have paid maternity leave. We're like one of six advanced countries that doesn't have paid paternity leave. We have no investment in a childcare infrastructure in the way that our advanced a pure economies do. We do not invest in what i love. This one economist called the common genius because we have this myth of the individual here. You know that we all create our own destinies. And so if we're really going to talk about how to make work work than we need to talk.

You can promise them flexible work but in two years if they're not on the same track and they're not promoted and you haven't figured out how to manage and work with them value their work. You know you're gonna lose them or you. You need to do the work to change your culture to make that real. I think it's important to that. We recognize. I know you do. How limited this conversation is to a certain and sort of elite sector of worker. I do wonder to some extent if we're putting the blame for some society-wide problems such as the lack of affordable childcare low wages cultural problems Gendered expectations if we're putting those problems onto the back of the workplace when it in fact there are much more widespread phenomenon and if white collar workers get to work from home that may help them with their child care needs but it does nothing for everybody else but actually i would argue. That working from home doesn't help white collar. Workers with their child care needs because basically working from home means that you have to work and do childcare and in the last year and home schooling. and that's just unworkable. But i think you raise a really important point and that is we need to see work as part of this bigger picture and work only works when it has all of the supporting infrastructure. That actually makes it work and that means care and that means care for children for you know schools for after care. It means you know care for a disabled Family members that means care for the elderly. And we we have no care infrastructure in this country. It's it's abominable we. We're the only country that doesn't have paid maternity leave. We're like one of six advanced countries that doesn't have paid paternity leave. We have no investment in a childcare infrastructure in the way that our advanced a pure economies do. We do not invest in what i love. This one economist called the common genius because we have this myth of the individual here. You know that we all create our own destinies. And so if we're really going to talk about how to make work work than we need to talk.

And so we had expanded our companies from Los Angeles to San Francisco to Denver, and we really hadn't gotten it working in one city at a theater thing was, I never felt like we were solving a really big problem. It was. It was kind of scratching your own itch, but it wasn't really changing the world. And so that was kind of frustrating.

I realised that we weren't really delivering a huge value, two bars and a huge value to consumers, and it was really it was a nice tohave product, but wasn't one of those can't live without products.

I enjoy but I would probably save anybody asked me, I love working with off cappella vocals, this is a lot of fun taking those vocals and making them sonically as big as anything that might have instrumentation.
