B.I.G. Interview | Dalton Risner, Denver Broncos Offensive Lineman

"Ladies and gentlemen dalton reisner joining the program. Here dolled my. It's been a while we were talking about this. We interviewed you before the draft. And we asked you what it would be like to be drafted by the broncos man. We appreciate your time my friend. Thank you so much appreciate it. Sorry for a couple minutes late man. It's a busy off already but thanks for having me on excited talk ball. Can't imagine hayes. Okay so i gotta ask you this. Do you find yourself. You know with this playoff week. You find yourself saying. I want to get away from football a little bit or are you glued to the tv like do you become a normal broncos fan growing up you become a football fan over the weekend or you try to stay away from it no. I don't become a football fan man and try not to get too passionate about it. But i can't stand watching playoff football. You know the kid. Obviously i love doing that. But you know i can't. I can't sit and watch a game without just getting here too. Because i want to be in the playoffs. I think we need to be in play offs. And that's the broncos legacy and you know. I don't want to sit there on a sunday e cheetos and drinking dr pepper watching someone else. Play my position and play the game. That i love so much and i know people might not think it's that serious. I think i'm a little overboard. But man i just i want to be in the playoffs. So dang bad. I wanna be. I wanna tell you next to your hand. Can't come on the show for a couple more weeks with to pay. And i'll be happy to read that email to my friend i want to. Hey don't worry. I'll i'll eat enough cheetos for you so you don't even have to worry about it. My friend young man. Dolton you guys. Let's his offensive line now. I know last two years no playoffs. It's been rough but you and especially this season that that offensive line. That was the bright spot. What has been part of this turnaround. Ever since you arrived with the broncos as a rookie you took it upon yourself to become an instant leader Do you find yourself going. Hey i i love being a part of that build on this offensive line. That's become the one of the strongest positions on this team. That means a lot man. It really does. That means just because i take so much pride and ever since i became a bronco one pulling the legacy that people that play for the broncos left behind for us to continue and i just take a lot of pride in that because i'm such a big bronco fan and now a part of the team and it's just such a blessing man and i i. I've always wanted to to be that now. Have an opportunity to be a leader on the line and hope guys long and we wanna be gritty. We wanna work hard. We want to enjoy running the rock in mulling over people and and take pride and protecting. And that's something that i love man so I'm so appreciative. That you notice that and like you said it's something that i think. We did a really good job at this year. Having cushenberry come. And i think he grew tremendously throughout the year. Graham glasgow was a great addition me working with garrett bowles. I was the first guard that's garret that garrett got the opportunity to work with for more than a year Practically thirty two games straight. We've got to work with each other And he found himself at the second team all pro. So i'm so appreciative. And so proud of all my teammates on the offensive line and really everyone on the team. But it's a fun group to be around in that. What's your relationship like with garrett bowles. obviously garrett's been through some interesting times with this organization but this year. Wow and i know you've always been in his corner with gary. It's one of those things that. When i showed up i had guys tell me. You know it's hard to play to garrett You know he hasn't had a guard for awhile. Yada yada yada whatever it is. I've seen garrick booed out of bronco. Stadium you guys know it's true. I've seen it happen and i've seen the perseverance about man's hats you know. He had. He had a rough start was. It was rough as everyone thought. Maybe maybe not. I'm not the one to tell. All i know is that from. What i came in the guy was on and off the field the things he persevered through the battles he to go through the tests that that got him through the football player to get through is incredible mass. He's that's good guy off the field. He's a big brother to me and he takes care of me. He let me know what i need to do. Better he checks me when you checked and I'm trying to get out. My man is just the things. I've seen go through the way. He persevered the way he's continued to push to get better and ignore all the outside noise about what people thought about him. Being a bus whatever it is he earned that this year. He earned that contract. He earned that second team all pro. In fact he probably should have been first team all pros so i cannot say enough good things about. He's big bro to me. We argue we fight. We yell at each other but it's all out of love. We want each of you better. We want to be left side of the best left side and football so so hats off to that guy and his family man. I hope he's drinking on my time.

"The the second and final hour of the week here. We'll be back at it on a monday. Thanks for being with us. Live and on location from live from the special ed students. We will be live on location. Monday from wiggins colorado dalton reisner put on his reisner up camp. It's a free camp for youth. It's going to be a lotta fun. We'll be out there. I don't even know where wiggins is but we'll find a colefax mapquest or map it you can map mapquest. Sorry i made a reference. That's not relevant to you. i apologize. Did you remember that. Tom tom thing remember those things. Oh yeah those are amazing no. Tv's you just glue on your dash and then away you go you find your way around and now it's just in your car and the new ones banning kids today technology and on your phone to every nuts all right. Well we'll find a way to get out to even me. I'm sure i can get out there. Odds are probably get lost at least once or twice. But we're bringing the intern with the so. We'll be fine. we'll make it. They're all right joining me now. Harrison wind are nuggets insider. We're talking all things. Denver nuggets love catching up with harrison from dnv vr nuggets harrison. My friend do you know where wiggins is by the way by chance i definitely have never been to colorado never near eastern colorado guy. So i'm from those small towns but i've never been so it should be a journey. I'm getting like three hours early though. 'cause i'm almost promising i'll get lost in a cornfield or something. We'll even show up on google. That's i don't know. I could end up in wyoming when it's all said the man who knows all right harrison. Do you have an issue to two questions for you. Do you have an issue with jamal. Murray taken the picture with the sons and four guy and do you have an issue with jamal liking a tweet that a a fan put up basically said hey you should be a laker. Essentially i don't have the tweet in front of you. What do you think. Do you have any issues with those. So the tweet that he likes. I not buying into that at all. I think he either didn't read the whole tweet. are accidentally liked it. I'm not buying that at all. Okay okay if because a lot of people hit me up about that. The only team that i would be kinda worried if jamal said he wants to play for nuggets would be toronto by the team. He grew up reading for and whatnot. But i'm i'm not worried about jamaa at this point really wanted to play anywhere else. He loves denver easies heart and so onto the team. I think he really likes it here. So that didn't really worry me The picture what. The sons in four guy i mean. That was a bad look. It was a bad look That's what i can say about it. I mean it was just a bad look like back. The nuggets fan base just keeps taking. Elle's i feel like and the sons in four. I gotta give him credit. He is taking full advantage of his fifteen minutes of fame. I actually got to give them a lot of props for it to be honest but the picture jamal taking the picture with him. It was a bad look. Yeah like what do you think. He could've met him. And it was a coincidence. Cool and jamal could've bought him a drink or something. Because i think we all agree. Sons and four guy did the exact right thing. He defended himself from a guy. Tried to sucker punch him. He was funny about it to imagine fighting. Someone like that and still having the wherewithal to be funny about it at the end. So i'm cool with jamal like buying a drink but hey now no photos man. My fan base might not like that yeah. It's been a rough couple of weeks. A couple of months for the nuggets fan base for sure and but but to go back to the original incident. The sons in four guy is the guy who originally got sucker punch. Yeah right right. He was in the right fighting back against that nuggets fan. Who was wearing talk about that guy. I don't even want to think about that. Going back to the original four guy. Was you know just fighting back and it's a good thing like i mean. I think we all agree. What he did was was what he needed to do. There's he did nothing wrong at all. It was perfect. I mean he defended himself and he became famous for it. Yeah you're right. It just feels like nuggets fans are taking els and that was just another blow and you know that's the team that swept you end. Nobody cares about the guy that got beat up. We all agree but the rest of it. Yeah it just kind of stings a little bit it hurts. It's like senior. It's like seeing your girlfriend with with her and we're their acts or something bothers you. Yeah i it's funny though so jamal. Like he has been out the last couple of games. In the or for game one game two in phoenix. I've gotta think that he's just really just wanting to steal that. Nba finals experience. He's wanting to just be in that environment. I actually look at him being there. Like all right. This guy was gonna come back really really hungry to get the nuggets to that level. Because he's experiencing right now. Yeah you're right that's a that's a great way to look at it too is just kind of getting a feel for. We're talking to harrison. Wind of dnv are nuggets. And when you're as you're watching these playoffs playoffs and here we are sons. Are up to look and really good like they're going to win their first. nba title. How far away are the nuggets harrison because these other teams are coming back. Golden state's coming back with klay thompson. The laker should be should be better as far as the injuries. Go in your mind. How far away are the nuggets from from being where phoenix and milwaukee milwaukee are today when the nuggets are fully healthy. I don't think they're far away at all. I mean i think i've said it on this show. A bunch brady and the nuggets believed this as well when they got aaron gordon when they won those first seven games i think it was. They looked like they could the best team in the league. And i firmly believe if they have remained healthy they could have come out of the west. I i really think if the nuggets were fully healthy. Jamal was healthy band. Been playing well. They could beat the nixon. That seven game series That's the type of potential that this team had with. Aaron gordon with a healthy jamal murray etc now like the sons are really really good. We saw that against an undermanned nuggets team. We we've seen that against the bucks two games. They're really good. But i think at denver's healthy you know. The nuggets are right there. I really do. We know so. When will that happen next season. We don't know when they were healthy. I think they flash that potential harrison. I don't have the sun's contracts up in front of me. But but when you look at chris paul he has a player option right but is there any reason to believe that he won't be son next year. I think chris. Paul has urged with this run another three year. You know maybe hundred million dollars dealer something like that. He's earned another huge contract With phoenix or phoenix isn't gonna give you a much you know they're probably going gonna have to at this point. He'll get it from somewhere else so he was probably entering this season thinking. You know maybe. I'll have to take that player option up now. He's about to get paid big time again. I've got a thing when a crazy story right chris. Paul was so good for so long. Goes to the clippers and they just can't get over the hump but he's still one of those top guys and you think that what the houston thing and the kc thing that okay. I guess he's gonna fizzle. This is where. Chris paul's career goes to die. He's just gotta be a fizzle guy and be part of a team and whatnot and then suddenly goes to phoenix resurrects. Everything and is going to be the finals. Mvp more than likely i mean and he was in the mvp talk all season. What a wild career at least for the last five years with him yeah. I feel like the best chris. Paul has ever looked in my opinion. Even going back to his days with the clippers In new orleans in houston. This is the best chris. Paul is ever looked. I mean he is just taking over every single fourth quarter. It feels like especially in these last two games game one and game two kind of went the same not phoenix locker punch punching back and forth and then chris paul has decided to take over these games the same thing. He did against denver so his ability to just take total command. The game It's incredible it's been incredible. Walking him He looks like one of the best part is in the league right now while there's no doubt i mean there's when usa against denver. It was frustrating. But you you couldn't deny it when he just go in and and the same spa over and over again sinking. Those shots i mean. He was in some kind of mode so it was a poetry in motion and he continues on Do you think the san's what do they win. This thing and five they sweep this thing. Or how do you think this goes down. Yeah i picked sons in five when still feel good about i've gotta think milwaukee's gonna get one at home for sure at least But he nicks is so tough man. Everything you throw at the sun they just eventually find counter for. You know like no matter. How milwaukee's guard the pick and roll and no matter what they've chosen to take away and what they've chose to give up chris. Paul has just figured him out and the sons are so well coached. We've talked about this on this show on the nba nuggets podcasts all season but the sun's how that team was constructed was just so beautiful like they have the shooter. They have the scores. They had the perfect role players. Like jae crowder and torrey craig. All pieces fit so well together. It's been something that we've noticed. All season and i feel like in the playoffs. We've just really seen that exact thing comes together. Yeah the depth to it not just depth throughout the bench but the starting lineup. Every one of those guys like you said they all play their roles perfectly. And it's it's we haven't quite seen a team exactly like this and it. It has been fun to watch at least on the side of things when you look at the rest of the western conference as you said you. The nuggets are pretty close fully healthy. But is this As far as like the jazz. The sohn's the clippers will see but when you look at the teams that were in the mix this year. I mean are we gonna see pretty much that same group but you add in golden state now as far as not even maybe worrying about the plane game once klay thompsons back. No for sure. I think you're gonna see the teams at the top right now. Stick at the top The lakers are probably going to have a bounceback year. you would thank. And then the warriors are the big wild card you know are the warriors take One of those draft picks or a couple of their draft picks and with james wise. Been trying to get a pass siachen which seems like it is the hot room right now. If that's what happens. Yeah the warriors are absolutely a threat in the west next season. So it's gonna be another dogfight In the western conference. And it's a bit daunting. I think if you're denver thinking about okay. How are we going to manage until jamal murray gets healthy. How're we gonna make sure we don't put too much of a load on the call yokich from game one of the regular season. How do we kinda way all of those things and still try to get home court in the first round. It's it's daunting a little bit harrison. Are we going to see that coach. Malone's talked about are we. Are we going to see that. Load management with nicola okay. I know it's a bad word to some but let's face it it. It did feel like the joker had a lot on him both mentally physically. By the time we got to the end of the playoffs. So is that a realistic possibility. I asked my malone straight up his end the season presser a few weeks back like. Do you have any initial thoughts on how you'll do that next season. And he was pretty candid and he said yeah like we're gonna or plan right now is to look at the schedule on. This cudgel comes out circle. Five to ten games where we're gonna arrest them and load management because what happens is if they come to nicole yokich the day before a game and say are we want to rescue. He's like no. I'm praying like i'm gonna play so there's talking as if they want to get those games picked out ahead of time. Now you can say that now and you know it's like last season. They started wh one in four. And i felt like they were playing. Catch up the whole first half of the regular season if something like that happens again. Does that change those plans that you laid out. But i'd have to think they want to get him some rest throughout season. Because you could tell like you said brady. How's tired physically and mentally. He was by the end of it. unsurprisingly he just carries such a big load. But i've gotta think and the indication. Mike malone gave a couple of weeks ago. Was that yeah. They're going to want to get him some rest during the season. Certainly another guy to take a look at I know the nuggets will be waiting patiently impatiently. Whatever for jamal. murray get back. But michael porter. Jr. we saw him. I think in the regular season. Certainly take the leap was bad defensively at the beginning got better and then became a pretty pretty important piece to denver. Playoffs were interesting but we set it. Can you get better defensively. He did next step. Would you say he asked to be able to absorb those really tight defensive plays. He's gotta find a way to get open. He can't just camp out and hope for an open shot. Yeah what we saw this year Is that the playoffs are totally different. Animal than the regular season Stuff in the regular season offense. It's just easier. It's easier to move within the flow of the game in the half court is easier to get your spot. There's just so much more physicality in the playoffs. He had trouble with it. And the nuggets are gonna need a lot from him a lot and the regular season. And i think he's capable because he was that guy for long stretches and the regular season this past year. But they're gonna need they're they're gonna end the score twenty plus a game. They're going to have a great chemistry with nicole. Yokich was developing all all season this year. but i want michael porter. Jr. to take a trip to sombor and hang out with nicole yoga's they can start to build that chemistry over the and that's what i want to see on social media like one of those dual carriages and they can have the horses. Pull them around. Yeah i wanna see those pictures leaking out over the next couple of months all right so last one for you today. Harrison the pressure on this team. What what our expectations for the nuggets are do. They have to get to the western conference finals. And if they don't we start saying okay. What are we missing here. Is this currently constructed. As far as it'll go into something to happen what are what are your thoughts there. We've got to see what this team looks. Like in the playoff. At least i think with everybody healthy because i firmly believe joe-marie is healthy nicole yolks michael porter jr. aaron gordon if those are your best players i think that's a team that can win the championship. And you know if we get that next season or which. I think we could know by the time. The playoffs roll around. Yeah i mean the expectation is definitely go to the western conference finals. The expectations should be to really compete in a western conference finals. I would think with that core and then you can kind of go from there but it's gonna take a while to get there. I mean it's gonna be a long regular season. A lot of it. Probably with joe out jamal. Murray that they're going to have to withstand and just keep the focus so yeah with this core with this group they definitely will have to be competitive in the western conference finals. And i don't think there's really any reason to think they wouldn't be short turnaround won't be that long until we're getting into preseason and everything harrison anything we should be on the lookout for from you and dnv or nuggets. Yeah well we're really shifting into a lot of our draft coverage. We're talking about different prospect. You know three or four times. A week on the podcast. Monday through friday at two pm and then we'll have a live draft. Show the night of the draft That will be you know. I for for three four hours. So that's always a lot of fun. Yeah a few weeks away from that. We're getting closer and closer. And i'm sure we'll catch you to kinda get your ideas. And what the nuggets should be looking at the kind of your overall thoughts on the to. Yeah yeah definitely happy to talk prospects. I love the draft. I i love. I love looking at these guys. Sandwich guys can fit with denver and whatnot so very excited to get more into that. Yeah no doubt about my friend. Harrison appreciates you as always look to catch up with you. Next week. i take things harrison wind. Dnv nuggets nuggets insider and the expectations will be interesting for this team. I you know if murray is healthy in the playoffs he should be unless he gets hurt again. Knock on wood And then he then he's able to get back to the to the murray that we saw even that murray like i said i put pressure on murray a lot. But if even he's back to the murray that we were seeing before he got hurt is the is the expectations for the nuggets to to make western conference finals. And if if you say yes. Because i think you say yes then what happens if not if you don't murray has this year on his contract then he has four more years at a high mark. Thirty four million thirty six million thirty eight point. Six twenty twenty four. That's his last year. Twenty four twenty five Porters contracts going to be what do you do. I mean us at five million right now. He's going to. I would imagine he's gonna play himself into a pretty good contract. Is that going to be in the twenty s in mid twenties high twenty s. Maybe but that that's going to be a big question. Mark to aaron. Gordon is going to have a contract coming of could he play himself into a big contract with the nuggets. The point is there's only so many big contracts to have. And if you get to some some point in determine that everybody loves murray so i have a hard time with it because nobody wants to even think about that but what would be the move. Be a head coaching move. Would we all know we. We liked the pieces. That just doesn't seem like malone's getting it done so yes this season. We have been colfax. I'm telling ya we've been watching the nuggets for the past five six years stress-free not say that in the playoffs stressful but this has been a rebuilding team. Since brian shaw was fired and mike malone was higher. We've been watching this team grow into relevancy. And they got all the way to the top with the mvp at least as far as individual words. I'm sorry to say it folks but what stress-free years for the nuggets are gone. The pressure is now on last year. It wasn't necessarily on the year before that we just wanted to get to the playoffs three years. Now they got to get in and they gotta make some real noise so yeah this this season colfax along and you know it's weird you don't want to start out the gates one four. You don't want to play catch up the whole time. That's stressful mentally physically. To that stress. Your superstars out as well so make no mistake about it. This upcoming season is is is uber. Important for michael malone extremely important for jamal. Murray big important for michael porter. Jr. and aaron gordon and we still don't really know what's going to happen with wilbert twenty four minutes after the hour about your take a short break when we come back more on the rockies we destined to see the rockies just this is it they have a baseball team that once in a while has some decent guys and maybe they make the playoffs once every ten years and that's just it but coors field is is. Is that really. The is that the fate of this team. Maybe so we'll talk about it next. It's a party. Northern colorado's voice thirteen ten. Kfi tub block party wednesdays from four to ten pm. What's happening in your own backyard. Listen to no co- now with tanner's swint a northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. Hey this is mark. Johnson voice for the colorado buffaloes and you're listening to the hall show my body pretty ho thirteen ten. Kfi sadly in colfax. I think the answer's yes for the rockies. I if this is truly the move that we're going to go the direction that we're going to go with the rockies pay basically stay in the course with a guy that they already know. That's been involved that to me tells me that you think that your circle is working and that that's an issue man. I mean that's an issue. Bill schmidt could go on and be great but when do you stop doing this dan. O'dowd jeff -british bill schmidt. Who does this. What other organization just keeps recycling tim. Conley came from the outside after messiah. Jerry went to toronto for the nuggets. I mean you look at it. Compared it already with the broncos jonah. We finally said what enough's enough. I'm not going to just promote another guy that's been learning from me for the last five six seven eight years. We're gonna get somebody else to come in here. A fresh set of eyes. You see with major companies all the time. Yeah they promote with from within. Because if things are great you keep doing that. Absolutely if the nuggets nuggets calvin booth keeps moving up with the nuggets. Why because they're successful. So it makes sense so tim conley calvin booth is if tim conley ever leaves and calvin move moves up to that job. That would make sense because this team has been good. Or calvin leaves the nuggets. Bring up another guy that's in their organization because it's working. That's when you start to do that. That's that's when it's okay from a fan base to keep recycling your staff. Just keep advancing your staff same with coaching staff. You do the same thing if you have a guy that's great on special teams and you won the super bowl and the defensive coordinator leaves to go. Be the head coach somewhere else. You move your special teams coordinator to the defensive coordinator whatever. But this is the rocky. Saying i mean. I've been frying man. I've been trying to say. Are you know what they're finally going to figure this out there. Dick did the right thing. Backed away they had to get an interim gm. So that's fine but this is just interim and now they're gonna put out a real search. And i'm not saying that they aren't but after patrick saunders. Report yesterday saying that. He talked to the rockies. President greg feazel yesterday and gets the sense that interim gm bill schwer strong candidate to be permanent. Gm it's not official and it's not a knock on bill schmidt really isn't it. I know it sounds like it but it's not this is what bad organizations do they keep doing the same thing over and over and over again and hoping for different results hoping for a miracle i will just keep trying it again. We love bill. And i know everybody. I'm getting the tweets. I'm getting the tax. The messages you sound surprised as long as people keep coming to coors montfort doesn't care i used to think okay. Come on. that's too easy. That's too easy just to say that people are going to coors montfort doesn't care. Does he really not care me. I'm sure he likes his baseball team. I'm sure he wants them to win right. But he's he also like win or lose. There's no real pressure like does he lie awake at night going. How am i gonna get this team going. Or is he just like. Hey we're gonna fans occurs cool. Trevor story doesn't matter. Maybe he's here. Maybe he's not really doesn't matter and again i. I'm trying to be careful here. I think it's so irresponsible so frustrating. That's what dictates how. An owner runs a team. 'cause i'm not telling you not to go to coors field set at a million times. Life's too short. Go have fun. Find the things that you like to do and if you'd like to go to coors field with a baseball game in the background and goto the party that can do that. Then do it not going to be mad at you. I'm matic montfort that it's the fans fault because that's that could be the truth. It's the truth that there's no pressure to win while the fans are still going in the money's there regardless if the money's there regardless where's the incentive where's the incentive to be better. You just have to be it because you own a team you have to separate yourselves from regular schmucks like us. You have to create your own incentive because you're owning a team and there's only so many guys that own a baseball team and i'm not saying you. Oh let's force. I'm a capitalist guy. Make your money buy your stuff do it. So dig montfort. He certainly made his money his family's extremely loaded and then he did a great job taking over. He bought the rockies. Great more power to you bud. I do hold owners of teams. I hold them to a higher standard. You know why. Pat bolan taught us that few own a team. You have a responsibility to your fans. This is not like ao. It's new own fortune. Five hundred company you. you have responsibility to your shareholders. Right cuba sponsor responsibility to your boards will think of the fan base is your shareholders. They're buying your crap. They're buying your stuff. They're buying your tickets. And maybe they're doing it anyway but at some point you gotta let it kick in and say all right you know what the move is. We scrap doing sorry bill. You're going to be the you're going to be the guy that the kind of takes the takes even though we think you're talented. We think you could be great. But i can't hire a guy. I can't go with an inside higher. I have to go with outside higher because we've already tried inside. Hires we continue to try inside. Hires ivette dowd bright. It's we keep doing it and it's not working on a regular basis five trips to the playoffs. That means you have to do something different. And i'm not saying that just because he's an outside higher. It's i dream of jeannie and the guy comes in and it's great but this is what you try say it. I've got this from my pastor a church. If this doesn't work we go back to. What wasn't working before you don't know what you don't know and right now you don't know that an outside hire couldn't come in with a fresh set of eyes and really help this this this team really bring in some new life really have some ideas as far as how to grow your farm system how to make that better how to be better with players how to be more of a player's gm because they didn't have it with which and it's hard to tell what bill schmidt could or couldn't do again. Maybe this is a little unfair to towards him because the rockies basically just need to set a blueprint this year they need to set up. A blueprint this is it. We are going outside higher. We'll do an extensive inter job search. Hopefully we get the right guy. But we're going outside higher and patrick saunders. Report at least on twitter indicates that now wash rinse repeat. Enjoy five trips to the playoffs in thirty every thirty years. I mean five trips. Fantastic thirty six minutes after the hour.

We're going to pay you to do all that they say we're gonna go out and get all this stuff and We're splitting proceeds. Could be either either way little bit of both to right.

Roddy maybe we oughta get involved in that colefax. Let's get rolling refund a very interesting mark. Johnson talked to us on wednesday. And he's like hey. This thing's going zero to sixty. There's no question about it. i'm just looking at some of the the comments people are saying. Did you know used to play football. You remember on every game that was ever on a national broadcast. They had to say and do you know that he played football a quarterback every like five minutes broadcast so crazy stuff man very interesting first advantage text line nine seven four seven eight thirty to one k f k eight that number to get involved. Mike bro hard. Put together an article about this at cnn. Dot com on the ram wire that the nil opens exciting doors for student. Athletes comprehending all means and how to benefit is the next step. Everybody's trying to catch up with this. That's what's so crazy it's very incidental a isn't it. Let's just go for years. We fought this. No no no no. No one's bow. That's the power of the supreme court though Told you that's what a man i mean. Everybody argued that's not what it means. You're poll questions wrong. Someone that means it's exactly what a man that meant the end of not letting the make money off their likeness. They can't hire an agent but they can hire a marketing person. Yes the difference because agents keyword iki but marketing person. That sounds a lot softer definitely. Same thing they're agent. They're not working to get you on a team. But they're working to get you. Endorsement deals which is also agent does not say it's not an agent. Okay fine but that so. They're not allowed to hire quote unquote agent or an agency but they could hire a marketing agency right. I would imagine sounds like it could could start colefax whole show sports nil thing. The non agency aged not a business. We're not agency agency where agency were not an agency. The same time. I i've just seen all the tweets all over and good for the vr. We love those guys just heard harrison. Wendy's one of those guys. They're they're getting after it. I still feel a little strange calling an athlete. That's in college and saying. Hey i can go get a business for yellow sign a contract and away. We go and it does seem weird still to you or does yeah. I mean it's just happened so flipping fat. Yeah i mean here we are and then you have you coming out here. Like you said my bro- hard friend of the show. Yeah trying to navigate through navigate and like not necessarily spin it. But just say yeah. We're we're we're behind this. We're we're for it. You know or behind our students and their ability to go take advantage of this situation will getting. It does seem yeah. The schools are definitely getting like issue getting way right behind One of the one of the paragraphs it my article again at cc. Rims come as a nutrition major. He's talking about swimmer. She has given some thoughts creating a youtube channel. Hannah sykes looking for positive activity to help her free time starting youtube channel. Where she passed along with she had learned and how she applied Things as a colorstay swimmer fitness nutrition. Diet things like that. Wow it's positive right. That's kind of cool. It's amazing and it's so funny to think that they couldn't do that wouldn't do that. She couldn't start thing that she got the luxury. Because of you. And i we go to mcdonald's and whatever that's that's good enough for us but she might learn some pretty cool tips and that we don't really pay attention to it. Hey you wanna wanna be a great sewer all these young athletes and maybe she was doing that anyway but now she can do it in a major level and she can make the production bigger and better and make it worth our time while exactly because if she doesn't have the if she's not making money doing it then it's like okay already have a busy frigging live on a swimmer and going to school. But now i can. I can actually make this worth my time. Not dedic david. Roddy said it very well. He's like hey. My priority is to bring a championship to colorado state. That's my priority number one. And he goes but if it's you know if you can kinda set stuff up now and let it let it take care of itself because you can do all this now. That's the beauty of it. David roddy can go sign contracts with the vr and they can set up merchandise. And you can buy hoodies and t shirts and basketballs and all that and he can go to a signing meal two or three signings in summer and that's all set up now he doesn't have to worry about it once. Practice starts up when it becomes a conflict. The coaches should have every right to step in. You can't miss practice because you're at assigning you know you can't that your priority has to be basketball and that's going to have to be on coaches and athletic directors and everybody in parents to be able to say this is the way it's going but it's we're seeing it locally and those that said. Oh it's going to be just the starting quarterback that's the problem. What have we seen a de linebacker for c. You a basketball player star and maybe a swimmer when she starts this this youtube pige it again. She starts youtube channel and she's probably going to get sponsors on the channel right. And i'm sure there's a. There's a pretty damn strong swimming community especially windsor colorado. You don't think she goes right there. There's a place for this. Are boy brody. You don't think there's businesses and sterling right now going. How do i get involved with bodey. And he promotes stuff for us. I mean it. It's all tall bodey colfax. Let's get that meeting setup. i love it i. I'm scared of it. I don't understand it quite yet. I do think it's going really fast. But reading blowhards article and then seeing it at a local level kind of makes it connect for me a little bit more cooler. Yeah it's it's it's a more reason to to get behind your your team. We are in a content driven world and who creates content now more than anyone a younger demographic because they grew up with this stuff. They grew up with twitter and facebook. In tiktok and netflix What is it instagram. They grew up with that stuff. It's all about content. They don't even know mapquest is. That's that's their problem. They don't even know mapquest would endorse the. Maybe remember when you have to. Three sheets turned right here. Okay one more thing. She said here she goes. That's what this whole thing is really cool. She's starting to brand herself for job market too. And she says that's what it was for me because i'm in the field of nutrition. So look at that. She's in the field of nutrition. Now she can work in that field. She couldn't do that before because she couldn't do it now. She's in the field and if you're in the field of nutrition but you weren't an athlete you could have been making money off this. You could have been trying to get creative with this. Wow we're supporting college. Student athletes thinking for themselves and going out and earning good for her and she to finish. Because i'm in the field of nutrition. This was a big portion of my videos. I have other types of content. But that's a big chunk of food. What i eat how i cook and shop. That's what i'm majoring in Dietetic so i want to be a dietitian. there are a lot of routes. I'd like to go with that. I'd love to be a dietitian for a sports team but it also love the opportunity to build a brand for myself be able to make my own meals. It's pretty cool. Forty nine minutes after the hour. We'll take a short break. We'll wrap up the show on the other side. The whole show powered biped energy listening to the hall's show powered by pd and thirteen ten kfi k. Brady will be back after the break. The power trip weekdays at eleven and thirteen ten. Kfi a this is just it out of the cbs four down in denver colorado. You're listening to the whole show thirteen ten. Ps k. the whole show powered by the energy were live from the auto collision specialist studios. Do you think it's a an okay. Excuse for drew lock to say. Hey he's had how many coordinators since he's been high-school college pros pat shurmur was kind of an interesting higher but that was his first year with the team last year. Or do you come at it with. He's a he's a professional quarterback he is. He was good in college. He should be able to pick stuff up eventually. And i say this every player is different. There are some guys that just click instantly whatever sport you're talking about. There's guys like peyton manning that started from day one and we're on a bad team but was still pretty good but they just were good. They just god then. There's other guys that. Take some time josh l. People forget this man. Josh allen was bad his rookie year he was in his second year. He was great his third year. So i actually do subscribe to that line of thinking. Now there's a limit but is it fair to think that drew lock has had so many different offenses thrown his way so many different looks thrown his way that he does not been able to take hold. There are players. The just don't grasp things mentally right off the bat as far as the playbook go think it's worthwhile looking into It's been a blast of a week. It's going to be a hot one this week as we went to the pool last night. Finally it was fantastic. Kicked out because of the lightning coming in. But yeah it's fun. The girl thing about going when it's cloudy is there's nobody else there so we'll probably go again tonight. Hopefully you guys can stay cool this weekend. We're going to be back at it on monday. And i'm sure we'll have plenty plenty in the coffers to talk about. That's going to do it for us. Good night northern colorado.

89. Starman (1984)

"Hello everybody welcome to another episode of the full. Cast and crew podcast. I'm continuing to try and get episodes out each week regardless of whether i've got a guest lineup or not after all we're all probably talking to ourselves at this point so i figure what's the difference now. Last week i went into some detail about peter. Weir's two thousand. Three nautical adventure movie master and commander. And i've gotten some amazing reaction. That episode was really a labor of love. Because i tried to explain in some detail and across a few different planes. Exactly why the film is one of my all time favorites this week. Though i just want to have some fun emulating cindy lauper before we get to the film. I want to talk about today. Let me tell you about how i stumbled across it. So the other night i was scrolling through looking for something but didn't really know what was in the mood for. I kind of felt like i was in the mood for something. Mid-eighties may be sifi e and amazon recommended starman which is nineteen eighty-four film starring jeff bridges and karen allen is the story of an extraterrestrial who takes the form of a deceased binned goes on a cross country road trip with the widow and of course they fall in love. There's a star. Baby made their some fisticuffs with rednecks. A deer is brought back to life all sorts of americana takes place. There's a chase the government's involved. There's a cover up. And everytime i stumble across this movie. There is a sense of surprise at experience. When i remember that what turns out to be this kind of wonderful unexpectedly. Inventive love story. Sifi road picture. Extra terrestrial mashup was directed by none other than john. Carpenter me me. Yeah that john carpenter weird right well. It turns out. It's not as weird as it might seem. We consider the origin story of the movie. And that's what. I want to focus on in this brief episode because this is one of those movies where the story behind the movie is as good as the movie itself and i do encourage you to see the movie if you hadn't seen it or if you haven't seen in a while it's a great great watch so i being surprised that distracted by john carpenter too good reminder that i shouldn't be too surprised when a great director directs a great movie outside of their genre i put that in air quotes. It's a reminder that too often we put directors or they put themselves into these genre boxes and it's as if only certain types of prestige dramas are where directors get singled out as tours or crafts people capable of making films of the highest order in any genre they choose. I was reminded of this again in that. Recent spate of excellent films. I watched from the canadian director. Ted kochav who's filmography is more like a roadmap of your seventy s and eighty s film childhood than it is the work of any single director wake in fright the apprenticeship of duddy kravitz fun with dick and jane north dallas. Forty first blood. And of course weekend at bernie's richard. It's you've got to be the weirdest you're dead right. I just saw you know what's your explanation this time. I don't mean to be rude. When i say this forget no. I'm not going anywhere until you tell me what's going on gonna wanna teach here so please you shut shot dead. Somebody's trying to kill us. Can we stayed your cops comer. What it's just bernie. You'd be hard pressed to name six more wildly different films. And yet they're all ted kacha films each excellent in their own right and at least three of them wake in fright. North dallas forty and first blood are also the most superlative example of the thing they do you know wake in fright is easily the greatest movie about austrailia ever made. And don't take my word for it. That's nick cave's opinion so if you disagree feel free to bring with him. North dallas forty is clearly the greatest movie about the nfl ever made and first blood is the only good rambo movie and it's by far the best film sly stallone ever appeared in and features the best onscreen acting by sliced along. So this hot takes for you so anyway. When i was in the mood for something kind of eighties and feel good. Thank you amazon prime ai. For recommending starman in nineteen seventy seven voyager two was launched into space to the outermost regions of the universe. It carried an invitation in all languages for alien life forms to visit our planet. Someone somewhere listened and accepted our invitation. Get ready someone this. Someone like no one has ever known before. Can you clone living organism from the hair of a dead man authorizing technology. That's probably a hundred thousand years ahead on power as we cannot imagine and the face in touch of the men should love a sex mentioned this to understand. I understand reading some fifty four hundred. Do you seriously expect me to tell. President alien has land assumed the identity dead house painter and is presently out tooling around the countryside hopped up nineteen seventy seven. Mustang talked to civilization trigger. What we can understand. There isn't much time to this as one of hurt anybody own. Can't you just leave him alone. What the hell ever happen. Good as we invited him so far too so much to do so. Little time to falling look companies john. Carpenter's storm owned by the way. My wife walked him when i was watching star. She said oh my god. Are you watching star. A love storm. Nfc starman like thirty times. I love that movie. And i can assure you. She doesn't say that about any other. John carpenter movies so star. Let's consider like most sci fi space alien movies of the seventies and eighties star development was to some degree inspired by affected by ten with and diverted by steven spielberg's script for a film called night skies which spielberg conceived of doing after he filmed close encounters of the third kind in nineteen seventy seven originally called watched the night skies. The script originated when columbia wanted a sequel to close encounters which spielberg didn't really want to do. But he also. This is where you know they say. Hollywood is like high school but with money he also didn't want them to make a sequel with anyone else so he wrote a much darker script than close encounters was. He wrote a film that had malevolent aliens. One in which. Thanks wikipedia eleven malicious extra terrestrial scientists. Try to communicate with chickens. Cows and other livestock in an attempt to discover which of earth's animal species are sentient before turning their unwelcome attentions on the human family and dissecting their farm animals. So it's a little far away from do do start. Man was optioned or put development at columbia before nights guys. But as we'll see such was the clout in fear of spielberg at the time. That being i in this case didn't end up meaning that starman had a clear runway to green light michael douglas. The actor director and producer was responsible for columbia purchasing the initial starman script and writer dean reisner worked on a version of the script with six. Count them six different directors dean one of the heroes of our story as you shall see. Meanwhile spielberg's film raiders of the lost ark. And he starting to have second thoughts about this kind of horror. Angry aliens concept that he thought of originally to quote stephen. I might have taken leave of my senses. Throughout the production of raiders. I was in between killing nazis blowing up flying wings and having harrison ford and all this high serialized adventure was sitting there in the middle of tunisia scratching my head and saying i to get back to the tranquility or at least the spirituality of close encounters with the script for nights guys so by this point john sales had taken a pass at the night skies script and apparently was john sales who added an et with glowing extended finger who befriends families son after that scripts spielberg takes him pushes it. Even more into the close encounters feel good zone with an alien not hell bent on dissecting farm animals and humans so now colombian studio has two films in development that they feel occupy similar spaces they have night skies and starman the difference was the spielberg one having come very far from its origination. As darker picture with angry aliens dissecting humans was now deemed internally to be a kid's movie a disney movie and these were said kind of pejoratively because star man was considered to be this weighty film that wrestled with adult topics and and was a serious movie. So now columbia to films. They felt occupied similar spaces the difference the spielberg one coming really far from its origination as a dark picture with these angry aliens was now deemed internally to be kids movie a disney movie and these were pejorative things. These are things that caused them to put night skies in turnaround. Which means you know what we're not making this anymore. If another studio wants to make us whole on the money we spent developing it to date. You're welcome to take it and produce it on your own and that's just what happens. Universal picks up nights guys. This hollywood thinking was of course validated. Just a few years later in nineteen eighty two. When night skies having been renamed e t the extraterrestrial becomes a global phenomenon grosses three hundred fifty nine million dollars on a budget of ten and a half million and leads to of parents yelling at their kids to stop grinding racist pieces into worldwide carpeting. So here's where we really enter the twilight zone a studio thinking You're traveling to another dimension a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mine a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries or that of imagination. Your next stop the twilight so now the et is a massive worldwide hit the executives at columbia. Who'd let it go. Because they thought it was too different from star man now. They thought something new now. They thought they'd given the box office successive. Et starman was guess what it's now too similar to et. Welcome to hollywood. So the answer to that at the stores directors at the project some types of directors at it so that they impose their thing on the movie. Maybe that will make a difference. So bring in adrian line at that point he'd only directed one The jodie foster coming of age melodrama. Fox's so he's on the project while but he eventually leaves to direct flashdance which let's be honest. There's probably a better use of his budding desire to film steam coming up from manhole covers on wet streets in neon lights and dousing strippers with water and other examples of what in hollywood over lunches. They don't really eat. They call his oeuvre. Adrian departs starman. Enter john batum. Yeah john badham. You see directed the hell out of saturday night fever. He did blue thunder with scheider. He was on board as director of starman until one into the movies guess what he saw. Et that's right so the next day he decided you. Don't actually i think i'm going to do wargames with matthew broderick instead. Incidentally wargames is a bit of a sore subject over here at a full cast and crew headquarters because in the first year of the pod. Chris and i were so in the mood for war games. We watch war games. We did tons of research on war games and we got so far into all the backstory of the making up stuff in it turned out to be such a fascinating interesting movie. I kind of equate it to almost heather's in terms of how into the backstory we got and how how fun and rewarding all the making of anecdotes were so we got together. We recorded this amazing episode that we just knew we had killed it. We'd like just hit all the points and everyone was so in the mood for a retro film like war games and we were going to release this episode and you know we were really excited about it and then ironically for a podcast about a movie about a sentient. Computer program are episode. It just disappeared. It got lost. Or i dropped a racist piece in the computer or something but it was unrecoverable. We could never play at. We didn't have enough of it to stitch together. The whole thing is just a great never was so it's out there somewhere anyway. So john adams like yeah he departs. I mean imagine seeing. Et for the first time in knowing that you're very film is gonna be about an alien who crash lands in the us and goes on a wild adventure with humans. You come to love him before he must return home or die trying. So here's where you think. Hollywood having i encouraged and supported the differences between star man and. at and then deciding no you know what now actually. We think they're too similar. They would have painted themselves. Quarter right. They must have exhausted. All possible takes to have about starman that right there is the laughter of anyone who's ever dealt with any studio or network executives and those people are laughing because they know exactly what i'm about to say next they know the kind of spineless craven jelly legged intellectually dishonest thing that the columbia studio execs necks. Tasked are poor writer. Dean reisner with dean riser. Who is now awaiting his fourth director on the star man. they tasked him with a quote. Reisner was charged with keeping starman essentially the same while simultaneously making it distinct from et same different. That is excellent studio executive brainstorming. That's the kind of really helpful constructive feedback that lets a studio exact feel like they really put their fingerprints on a project and still have time to grab a table at the ivy. Making those kinds of pronouncements is what a big time producer does and they get handsomely rewarded usually for things working out despite their involvement. And since let's be honest there's no real worker thinking involved. There's plenty of time for recreational drug use and recreational marriages. Hollywood and you wonder why don simpson died on a gold toilet. A biography of oliver stone. Right it wasn't a gold toilet. But i like to think it was anyway. I digress so dean wiser stiller hero still plugging away tumor directors. Come and go tony scott. Let's bring in tony. Scott wright big action atmospherics dramatic pronouncements mave droll military matter-of-factness gene hackman in crimson. Tide is understood lieutenant. Hunter you know. Extreme closeups canton angles. Misty rooms with curtains pulled against the daylight. Yeah tony scott. So he exits. Direct to the hunger. With catherine deneuve david bowie instead of starman and then he does top gun peter. Hi came aboard. Wanted to make a very conventional science fiction film. Peter leaves went on to direct the completely unnecessary sequel to two thousand and one inventively titled two thousand ten and then in the darkest of days after five years of development hell five different directors in walks of all people john carpenter john carpenter's coming off the thing which as discussed on our previous episode about the thing about its absolute mastery and brilliance as a film the thing was so good so exceptionally conceived directed so astoundingly assured in pitch perfectly cupid. Did it nearly destroyed john. Carpenter's career was the biggest flop of his career. A film that today's heralded amongst the top one or two or three horror science fiction movies ever made was a colossal near career ending failure for john carpenter. The horror and sci fi press. Who had loved john carpenter. They were so head over heels with e. t. and feeling warm and fuzzy about the kinds of things that were happening on screen in a movie like that that they just couldn't get behind a movie where a guy loses his hands in the chess. Teeth of a dead guy that he's defibrillator. You know tortuously abandoned arctic research station so as they say in the business. John was available to take a meeting on starman and thank god he was because if the thing had been hit then john carpenter shirley never would have directed starman and it would have languished in development hell for another three or four years until somebody the studio either abandoned or said. Hey you know who'd be great as the starman. How about bowel key for perfect strangers and like peter horton would have directed and it would have ended up being really pedestrian and run of the mill and uninspiring forgetful and unworthy of your attention but john carpenter in a little bit of a sneaky counter cultural rope a dope turns out to actually be the perfect director for star man because he has a creative vision for the movie and the vision he has is not as even non hollywood executives might be forgiven for thinking to turn it into some gore soaked. Splatter fest. no. John carpenter understands that the script presents an opportunity to do a really unique. Love story one. That's shop through with themes of loss and acceptance and tolerance and john carpenter of all people understand that the script is a way to tell a story about two lovers on the run but also to up end. The typical male centered narrative of those kinds of movies so in john carpenter's starman it's the male character. It's the jeff bridges role who is the nayef the childlike innocent the blank slate in other words in hollywood terms. He's the female character. And karen allen is the hard bitten closed off to love cynic with a romantic hard underneath at all. who traditionally hollywood is the male role to john. Carpenter mixes those things up. He sees it as a screwball romance mixed with the road. Picture mixed with a government conspiracy thriller mixed with the best kind of science fiction. You know the kind that's reasoned out has logic to it so he made a movie that was all of those things and in doing so. He made one of the truly most interesting examples of all those types of movies. So what are the joys of star. Man has if you're like carbon films. It's the control of the setting the pacing the way the plot unfolds through the language of his camera movement and his commitment to brave ideas about character and staying true to all that It's about finding an actor in jeff. Bridges who really convincingly with zero prosthetics zero special effects really believably render aversion. What an et taking human form might actually move in sound like right. So it's a little offering when you see it at first because it's kind of believably real with the way he moves body in his head and his gestures and there's there's obviously put a lot of thought into the way we do things as humans and how an entity from another galaxy wouldn't necessarily understand how to move their body or speak language or any of these things in the way that we do so you can imagine sitting screen at columbia when these dailies come in and all the exact cer- taking their seats and of course they're probably waiting on the most important executives just making them all wait to remind them of his importance and then somebody shows up to the booth. Roll it you know. And then they see in the hear. What jeff bridges does in this movie. It's so different. It's it's it's it's real. it's plausible. Feels like the way he might move and talk when the world is all new to them. It's it's brave is what it is and it probably out of context looking at snippets of film in a session. Where you're just looking at daly's man. It probably does not inspire a lot of confidence at first. You know it's like when you know. Evans and all the executive paramount. We're watching the first shots of pacino as michael in the godfather. And they're like was this guy's name doing anything he's not talking he's not he's he's not emoting faces moving is what is he doing. Of course once you see it all put together. You understand the genius of the performance. So that's kind of the first stop now. We have to give some of the some of the exact same credit because however it happens maybe they just given up at this point. they're like. Hey whatever does this made. But they let that happen. Which i think is brave. and then karen allen. Oh my god. The whole movie does not work without karen allen opposite are starman. it has to be karen allen. She's perfect she's wounded but her heart and her decency is never in question even when doing the wrong thing like we're with her because it's actually the right thing so it's like yeah. You should abandon this freaky guy. Who's in the body of your dead husband. Brings deer back to life in a truck stop. Parking lot like get away from that guy. That's like the smart thing to do. Get on with your life. It's nineteen eighty-four. Go take some classes have a fling with get your head together girl and then get back out there we take your life. Got the whole rest of your life ahead of you. Don't let this storm in kook abandoned your dreams. But she's the heart in the center of the movie. Her character is the smart character who figure shit out and get him out of jams and jeff bridges and john carpenter. They let her be the center like she's not just sunk shunted aside. It's actually her story. The movie should really be called. I'm with star man. I think this is important. It speaks to what we think we know about. Jeff bridges the dude and you should see our big lebowski episode and also get better jeff. He's been struggling with cancer easily. The thing we know is that we think he's a genuinely nice and good person you know. He's not big footing canal demanding all the best lines and the closeups and other insecure actor. Shit and then. Of course there's a science fiction movie so there's all this exposition stuff. There's government stuff there. Science duffin carpenter handles all this really expertly. I mean admittedly he puts most of it in the mouth of That guy charles. Martin smith who explicatives expertly on all manner of space time continuum in the essential essential decency of treating starman like invited gas because after all we did send that gold plated l. p. into space with a you know come on down to earth message on the as they say in the wrath of khan not roth calm the other one. The one with the ball girl also available as a highly entertaining episode of the full casting crew podcast. So there's only one special effects scene which of course being john carpenter there's no less than three complete legends of the special effects craft contributing to it. You dick smith stan. Winston rick baker the three god head figures of the special effects industry. They made this really simple. But shockingly effective and haunting sequence where the energy force of the starman which is depicted as a blue ball of light with kind of a voyeuristic complex. Taking the form of scott is jenny. Deceased husband played by karen allen so the star man finds a lack of scott's hair and a photo book in clones scott back from the dna so later when starman jenny share a tender love scene probably the only love scene carpenter ever filmed where someone isn't slaughtered afterwards. He knocks her up with the star baby. And it's scott's baby because he scott. It's scott's dna. We learn then that genuine scott couldn't have a baby and then all of a sudden in this amazing kind of call back to the beginning of the movie were care now is watching home movies of scott and her and kind of crying and you know smoking and drinking and obviously bereft all of a sudden when you think back you realize that. What was etched on scott. Jenny's faces in those home. Movie scenes was the fact that they couldn't have a baby together and that that was also a loss that she suffered in addition to the loss of her husband and so when when she gets the star baby. It's scott's baby but it's also star man's baby and against the bad news is the star baby grows up fourteen years later to star in the ill-fated tv version of starman which stars robert hays their mother was my. What do you want from me. I want help Army think refined find my mom. Sometimes you do your best you know. So starman is it's moving. It's unabashedly hopeful. It's not cynical has great casting. In the larry parts interesting casting and shout out to jennifer show the casting director knowing complain i would make is not really a big fan of the score. It's a jack nikki score. I'm not really a fan of many of his scores. I think that was such a kind of trend in the seventies in the eighties. Just did a lot of these scores. That i just find kind of forgettable but you know. Maybe i'm not listening the right way. Or i haven't heard the good ones but i of the mind where you guys probably know this but john carpenter really composed most of his own music for his movies. This was one that i think it would have been really interesting to be able to hear carpenters. Take on what this type of score would have been. And i wish that he'd gotten the opportunity to stretch and compose some of this because that would have been really interesting. He actually said the studio wouldn't let him do that. He wanted to do that. They basically said you know. Look you can do whatever you want your horror movies but you know. Hey we're we're doing a big romantic love story a sci-fi movie we'd call an expert so but it's that's a minor quibble in the movie holds up. Great if you haven't seen it in a while it's a worthy rewatch. Old said dean reisner was going to be here over a story. Dean reisner the writer who worked on seven different rewrites of starman with six different directors at the end the triumphant end where they finally make this movie. He didn't receive any screen credit as a writer. Because the writers guild in it's infinite wisdom decided that given all of the things that had happened. He probably didn't contribute fifty percent or more of the screenplay. Welcome to hollywood kids until next time. Thanks for listening

Starman (1984) | John Carpenter

"Hi, welcome to around the world in eighties movies. My name is Vince Leo I am the author of the Film Review Website Webster Dot. Net I've been doing film reviews since Nineteen ninety-six all of my work at my website quitter dot net Q. Wip as the dot net way there. I. Do encourage you to check out my podcast that covers more recent movies. It is called the Film Review Podcast you can finally at that website lipstick dot net. I'm going to be getting into the third part of a three part series looking at benevolent aliens have visited Earth plus encounters of the third kind an et were the first two movies. In this mini series today, I'm going to beginning into a film then pretty much came about or was heavily influenced by those two movies. It's from Nineteen eighty-four and it is called Starman. Starman is a PG rated film definitely would be PG thirteen at. Least today it does have violence brief nudity and language. The run time is an hour and fifty five minutes Jeff Bridges and Karen. Allen are the main stars Charles Martin Smith has a sizeable sporting role Richard Jaekle, Robert Phelan, MC gainey are also in the film. John. Carpenter. Is the director screenplay credited to Bruce a Evans and Raynal Gideon knowing the late seventies Columbia pictures they had a multi picture development deal with actor and producer Michael. Douglas in Nineteen Eighty Douglas bought this script to the SCI concept called. Starman came from Bruce Evans and Reno Gideon, and he urged Colombia to take it up as his next project Douglas Love the humor in the pathos within the script. This alien race has been studying earth. They've pretty much figured out everything about earth except for humans and human behavior. Columbia had just scored a big hit with Steven Spielberg's close encounters of the third kind. In fact, there was the film that save the studio from certain bankruptcy. So this seemed a sensible investment to keep going with a similar film. The also wanted to keep Douglas onboard with their studio. So Columbia accepted and Douglas to con an executive producers role. Now, in addition to Starman Columbia wanted a follow up to close encounters itself and Steven Spielberg. He wasn't really interested in doing another close encounters film, but he also didn't want to see. Another franchise that he kicked off tarnished like jaws was. So he would produce the next film. The project that he came up with was called night skies initially a farm under siege by Aliens Science Fiction horror concept very much at odds with the tone of the first close encounters. So at odds that Spielberg had a change of heart and decided to repackage nights guys by developing a subplot within that film one where a kindly alien an autistic boy form a friendship and this new direction blossomed into what would become e t the extraterrestrial after conducting market research Columbia told Spielberg that his. Et concept was limited in the appeal only two kids and the story veered too close to Starman. So they have to make a choice and decided to ride starman because they felt that that had in addition to appealing to the younger said, it had appeal to adults and women because of its romantic subtext. So they put into turnaround in the asked for a proper sequel to close encounters again, and by this point e became a passion project for Spielberg, he asked universal pictures to buy it out from Columbia and he would direct it universal gave Columbia a million dollars for their turnaround fees. And five percent of their profits if they postponed starman until at least six months after et's release feeling that would be no more popular than a typical live action Disney. Release, which wasn't a very popular brand in the early nineteen as they accepted however creative differences and et's monumental success it's a wave of panic among the brassy Columbia pictures they demanded that star Ma'am be reworked completely. So the churn through what would end up being six directors. Those directors included Mark Ridell who left after the first day he had artistic disagreements with Michael Douglas that cannot be resolved. So he was out of there very quickly almost justice quickly with John. Batum he left for war games he had viewed e. T in the theater and he did not want unflattering comparisons to Spielberg in that film. So he left Adrian Lyne he came in but he lasted a lot longer. He about six months but he would leave to do flashdance when the studio decided that they were going to turn starman into a much more comedic concept, Tony? Scott Dan came in he wanted Broadway star Philip Anglo to place man and he was eventually evicted from the job when he had a bad commercial and critical drubbing for his style over story type of filmmaking exemplified by his nineteen eighty-three film called the hunger Peter Higham. Stick over for Scott but he was taking the opposite end he was doing to mundane approach to literal. Approach, and so he was out and he decided to go make twenty, ten the year we make contact, which was actually released the same day as Starman it turns out and did actually better but finally John Carpenter was the one to take the role and he stuck. So we have John Carpenter's Starman. Now Carpenter was putting the finishing touches on Christine when he was hired in Columbia had admired his reputation for delivering quality films on time and within budget he said he wanted to do starman is a little bit more fairy tale in its concept instead of just a straight science fiction film, he wanted a little bit more the wizard of Oz maybe a little less fantasy than that but he'd. Wanted. More like that than it would be close encounters of the third kind. But he wanted also grounded into this road trip type movie. It would have romance or would have comedy a little bit like Frank Capra's it happened one night or maybe hitchcock's the thirty nine steps where you see a man and a woman get to know each other romantically through their dire circumstances. If it had more of a science fiction premise of course Columbia. Proved this approach because it was a less expensive approach than doing an all-out effects extravaganza a carpenter had just suffered a box office disappointment of his own. He had done the thing Christine turn out to be a modestly successful performer but not necessarily, very popular. Carpenter wanted here a change of pace from the darkness of some of his films he was looking for something beyond his comfort zone that would allow him to grow. As a director as an artist and here was a chance to show that he could make a successful romance or comedy or adventure and road movie all in one and he wanted to prove that he was a good and versatile director. He was not just somebody that was interested in horror based themes. In addition to the six directors there were also five writers that were attached at. One time or another the original script in first revision whereby Evans and Gideon and Edward Zwick came in to do a Polish Zwick was a writer that Michael. Douglas respected and he became a future acclaimed director of his own Diane Thomas came in. She also scripted romancing the stone for Douglas do some work with the dialogue there Columbia's resident script doctor came in to do the final. Revisions, many of them actually, Dean reisner now many snags between all of these writers had to do with getting bogged down with a lot of the details as to the extraterrestrials appearance and what his ship would look like and what kind of superpowers he would have, and it just took up a lot of the times to Reisner when he was brought in specifically differentiate starman from E. T.. At least initially because the public was going to see star man is nothing more than a rip off of T. especially if it was in its current state, but he was also told don't deviate too much from et because he also wanted to tap into the same same market the same crowd that was out there that made that such a phenomenal success now during the revisions John. Carpenter. Also caught wind of this other similar project that came out in nineteen eighty four. It was called the brother from another planet and it came from John Sales sales happen to have written the script for the project that would eventually turn into et was night skies. After attending a screening carpenter told reisner he should redraft script he should concentrate starman more as a love story that would. Be The angle that would make it unique. Maybe make it a road trip comedy in the vein of Frank Capra's it happened one night carpenter wanted the tone to stay very upbeat and amusing and having reisner remove some of these heavy handed political elements and scenes that went through a lot of the revisions. Starman blowing up the government bad guys at the end with the laser blast he. Thought that was just too much wanted to stay a much more positive and optimistic experience for the viewers carpenter decided that they would not show the alien is anything but this energy orb before it would transform into what would become physical embodiment he would become a human being at least in appearance an early version of reisner script the alien was going to be transparent would see its innards. And Carpenter told Reisner, let's not make him anything other than a complete human because having alien physical traits may dampen their attempt to capitalize on the romance. If this character was too much of other and it would distract from the adventure aspects that he felt that audiences with be much more interested in following as part of its entertainment. So the final plot that made it into the film. An alien race intercepts voyager two, which was a space probe that was sent out in the late nineteen seventies real-life actually was sent out. It was something that contained elements that described Earth effectively inviting aliens to visit or at least saying, hello, some did encounter voyager two and they took up earth on the offer to pay a visit they sent a scout pod to see what we were up to you American fighter jets this pod and the Alien Scout Crash lands in the American backwoods in Wisconsin using DNA found in some clipped hair follicles within a photo album held in the home of a reason widow named Jenny Hayden. The alien transforms itself into the likeness of Genie's dead husband this House painter named Scott Hayden Jeff Bridges Plays Scott Hayden there. Now, the not Scott must get to a rendezvous point at meteor. Crater. Arizona to get back into the mothership before he is but steady the search for extraterrestrial intelligence as well as the FBI want to find him said, he wants to get to know him if he wants to experiment on him but the alien has no choice. He has to kidnap Jenny to assist him to get to his rendezvous point a little bit more to the story than that. But I don't WanNa go into any kind of major spoilers here for those people who haven't seen it. The screeners guild had to have arbitration to give credit to the original screenwriters Bruce, a Evans and renal. Gideon Carpenter was angry about that choice because he felt that Dean Reisner who came. Into the project in late nineteen eighty-one he ended up writing seven drafts over the next two years to the point where he felt that the story was just as much reisner as it was evans a Gideon. So he did not get any credit for his script revisions despite two writers, guild arbitrations. So Carpenter dedicated the film at the end to Dean reisner and that caused some controversy with the writers guild. They felt that that credit was usually something that was reserved for deceased collaborators or sources of inspiration, not necessarily to give a tax credit for one of the Writers Allen, Dean Foster, though the novelization that he did included risers name as one of the sources now although he Came in late Columbia called it John Carpenter's Starman. It's advertisements on its movie posters and market research found that putting John Carpenter's name above the title did increase audience interest and that his name did not necessarily denote a horror film to those people that would be interested. They saw him as just a good record, not necessarily as somebody who just made horror films Michael Douglas at one point considered making himself the star of the film but he became too involved with starring in and making romancing the stone. He couldn't take the role, and by this point, his star power was rising as a box office performer he had all but given up as a producer trying to get star man. So Columbia at that point was calling many of the shots without him. Any way other than making a few suggestions on some casting changes and some notes on an early cut Douglas's involvement in the production of star man was minimal after hiring carpenter. For the cast the studio initially wanted to go very young. They wanted some twenty-something stars to put in the film. One Star that they wanted really badly was Tom Cruise. Risky business, he was going to play starring. Mariel Hemingway or Diane Lane were suggestions for playing Jenny Carpenter, met with all of these actors including the twenty two year old cruise. He would have had no problem making the film with Cruise, but he was still very young, very fresh-faced to play a long-term soulmate for somebody. So in December of Nineteen ninety-three, they decided to go with twenty six year old Kevin Bacon he was slated to star, but then carpenter started auditioning for the role of Jenny and he changed his mind as to Kevin Beacons involvement. When he auditioned thirty-three-year-old Karen Allen, Allen clicked instantly as Jenny she was tough get. On a very convincing way he felt that this was the jenny that he had to go with. But because she was older than Kevin Bacon by a few years, he felt that they should go for a meal lead that would be much more her age enter equal. So Jeff Bridges was sought not just because of his box office appeal, but he also has this boyish and manly quality to him, which worked very well for that kind of role carpenter had been wanting to work with bridges for other films he had made in the past escape from New York and the thing obviously those star Kurt. Russell. But. He really wanted to get jeff bridges onboard for those, but it wasn't going to work out timing. Wise. So he moved onto Kurt Russell Kurt Russell became kind of an action star through those movies as well and bridges came in he started doing a lot of rehearsing as to what star Man's physical movements would be. He worked with a friend of his dancer named Russell, Clark Seen Anu or frightening part to Russell Clark is kind of a he's very captivating dancer he's not necessarily hugely significant to those movies but you definitely remember his appearance in it. If you've seen those movies recently, bridges also thought of Russell Clark. Who is very other worldly in his demeanor. So this was kind of the perfect person to give him choreography to make him seem like an alien bridges also observed how his young daughters who were three years old and about a year and a half old at the time they were just learning to walk or talk or observe how the world works. So he was going to incorporate their mannerisms and movements and curiosity into star Man's performance for his head movements. It was suggested by Clark, he look at ornithology basis head movements on birds. So bridges kept a picture of a bird on his gripped to give himself Accu- each time. To make sure that he moved his head back and forth just like a bird might denies claimed at this point he had ridden the film as a women's picture. It was really going to be carried by Jenny. Hayden. But bridges managed to steal with this performance. All of the scenes he was in he put so much effort into his performance that he really became the one to watch. McCarron Allen. She had butted heads repeatedly with Steven Spielberg on raiders of the lost Ark for not valuing input from his actors. She says that Simon was one of the most pleasurable experiences of her screen acting career she found John Carpenter A. Refreshing change of pace. He worked with his actors on their motivation and evaluate your opinion on shaping how they might behave in certain situations even if it was not specifically in the script or an historic boards, for instance, the scripted picks, Jenny incomplete fear of the alien assuming her husband's body. But Alan fell cheeky little bit more conflicted about seeing this she would be repulsed for sure but she was still intrigued enough because she was seeing her husband here to want to explore this possibility that he is somehow in there to find his presence comforting much more quickly. So Alan saw the role as a challenge in achieving and maintaining. An emotional state of mind throughout especially since this was something that she would never experience in real life, she had to create all of these emotions that nobody ever experienced because nobody's ever gone through what she's going through in this film Charles Martin Smith he was cast he didn't even have to audition. He received a phone call from carpenter he had never worked carpenter before but carpenter was a big fan of Smith's work due to his inherent likability instantly on the screen, he tried a couple of times to work with him before, but he was always busy. So he got him on board for Starman despite minimal sequences they did. Hire some of the best technical crews in Hollywood Joe Alves came in. He was somebody who worked on close encounters as well as jaws. He scouted locations he performed second unit direct Oriel Dis makeup effects brought in some pretty big heavy hitters here three major talents, Dick Smith Rick Baker and Stan Winston, the shared duties, for instance, in the scene where the alien uses Scott's DNA to go from an embryo to a full grown man three of them performed something within that scene Rick Baker made the infant. Stan. Winston created this effect of the infant turning into a boy and then Dick Smith handled the boy turning into a man. All of these craters though did complain about being asked to do effects work with film was such a severely limited budget because they thought audiences, we're going to expect by having their names attached really eye-popping visuals that aren't really there for most of the run time. Now, for the visual effects themselves, they run in the biggest name in the business industrial light magic to enhance the and departure sequences at the beginning and the end of the film. Now, some did bowed. Now, some of the effects work done here, feeling like it doesn't really flow with the rest of the movie Joe Alves in particular said that industrial light magic delivered. Effects here that we're not what he asked for. He said that the title of Starman maybe should be changed to the audience is would not anticipate this effects dominated film and some science fiction buffs do complain that the mothership ending does plagiarize this nineteen, eighty, two film from New World Pictures that starred Robert Carrying called wavelength. It's an ending that has similarly shiny spacecraft ever flexed its surroundings it was coming out on video. So people were making instant comparisons between wavelength and what we're seeing in Starman Aldo does state that he had no knowledge of wavelength and similarities are pure coincidence. So he had conceived of this Saturn light ship. Before he ever heard of this other film and it's chrome like similarities. Now, although the premise does strain believability at times, there are many contrivances to get the film to work. It does remain entertaining and it does pack an Emotional Punch Jeff Bridges here. He's endearing this Oscar and Golden Globe nominated performance as the fish out of water alien having to adjust world. He's never known that Oscar nomination by the way will be the only one earned by a film that was directed by John Carpenter now it also marks the first and I think as of this recording I, think it's the only Oscar nomination for somebody who plays an extraterrestrial. I'm wrong about that. You can send me a note I'll give my details at the end of the show the love story here it's a bit rushed. It has to be rushed because you have to go from complete repulsion to love within three days worth of story time, but it does feel genuine and that's thanks to the committed performances by Jeff, bridges and Karen Allen Charles Martin Smith Year, also, very good in a supporting role as the agent with a conscience. Richard Jaekle who carpenter was also a longtime fan of due to his intimidating screen. Presence, he's equally slimy as the US State Department bureaucrat out to capture this proof of extraterrestrial life to perform experiments on him. Presumably, it was somewhat of a personal movie anyways for John Carpenter Cody was born during the production. He also would leave his wife. Adrienne. Bard, bow at this time during the Production Carpenter Mitt Sandy King. She was working as the script supervisor for star man and they became an item and then later married in one, thousand, nine hundred and they still remain married to this day. He really feels he found his soul mate there. As there were many locations to set up and technical considerations, the actors to entertain themselves during their downtime Karen Allen to such things as knitting Jeff Bridges. He began hobby that he would actually do the rest of his career. While making this film we started it was star man at the encouragement of carrying Allen. He would photograph behind the scenes goings on for this film, as well as future films with his wide legs camera that was given to him by his photographer wife, and he would compile all of these pictures into albums to. Give. Out to the cast and crew as a memento of their time there. Now, as for the plot of Starman, it's a bit murky. It does start off with a missing piece that I would have liked to seen there. You would think that would be vital to understanding what's going on, which is the reason that the alien has decided to come to Earth only to be picked up right away to go home we do get a vague reference to him being a map maker, maybe an explorer, which is I guess for the purpose. Of a thoughtful romantic sci concept. That's good enough because the emphasis was not necessarily on his mission much more. So than what happens during the journey, there are some religious implications here Christ allusions, abound kind of a wink that the starman comes from heavenly place are there is not really explicit or overbearing. This is definitely not a film that's trying to make you buy into a religious subtext here, but it definitely does make some comparisons here between starman and perhaps an angel or Jesus or what have you the film is not just A. Love story though between a woman and an alien, but it also has kind of a love for America this cross country depiction of America's finest assets not only it's beautiful locations, but it's helpful people most carpenter stories have working less people as the heroes. The government is usually seen with much more skepticism there the obstacle to total greatness for the country. So carpet really saying here America is Great. We have great people we have great beauty. There's a lot to be proud of, but the government such as it is is what's really ruining us. From complete greatness, which is something he would explore much more fully a few years down the road with they live starman benefits from its sense of humor. It doesn't lose dramatic tension because of it though some contrivances as I mentioned, you abound bound you have a young man with a hot rod give Jenny ride. You presume because she's an attractive woman that he would be interested in so you can make your own conclusions there but there's no rationale as to why later when they encounter a roadblock that he decides to set off an. Explosive, distraction to assure her safety even though he was never going to see her again, you just Kinda have to go with the flow of that. It has one of the best science fiction scores from the nineteen eighties I feel. But Carpenter actually didn't do this score he normally scores almost all of his own movies. This one is by Jack Nici who also scored a nineteen eighty-one Jeff Bridges film before called Cutters Way Carpenter loved the work that Niki does here any honored the theme by including it on his own album forks in two. Thousand, seventeen anthology movie themes in addition to that score, there's also a song featured prominently in the film I can't get no satisfaction by the rolling. The film depicts that Song as being on the voyager golden record that was sent into space containing all of the sounds and images in greetings in many languages meant to serve as a hello from the people of Earth however, in real life that song doesn't appear on that golden record actually is johnny be good by Chuck Berry but perhaps not quickly satisfaction by the stones features piano and. Tamarine by Starman composer Jack Nici. So bringing it full circle there Michael Douglas was very high cheese work since he composed one flew over the Cuckoo's nest, which was a douglas production. Any wanted him to bring that. Magic to Starman. NICI also worked for Douglas just a few months later for the jewel of the Nile and ICHI would receive a Golden Globe nomination for the score for Starman as well. Now, the soundtrack if you've bought this contract to star made, it includes duet between Jeff Bridges and Karen Allen the cover and Everley brothers classic. called. All I. Have to do is Dream Very famous song they actually sing it within the course of the movie kind of an acoustic performance within the home movie footage at the beginning of the film but it came about because Karen Allen Jeff Bridges like to sing together during their downtime in the film they became great friends during the making of this movie. In fact, if you listen to the commentary for Starman that was done with John Carpenter and Jeff Bridges he kind of admits he did fall in love with Karen. Allen during. The making of this film, and he feels that sometimes he does fall in love with his leading ladies despite the fact that he's been married since nineteen seventy seven, that's neither here nor they did make a music video for the song to promote the film and at the end of that video if you watch it, you can actually search for it on Youtube and find it. They do feel the notion to kiss each other romantically at the end of their singing together. So I think they were overcome with emotion for each other at that. Moment they became good friends. They still remain friends. They still get together tea occasionally seeing Karen Allen sometimes appears onstage with bridges and his band, the abide irs, and in addition to singing, she also knows how to play harmonica she the blues harp for the band when she does make her appearances Starman for some reason, has a reputation of being kind of a hit film for John Carpenter may be a successful film, but actually really was not it never cracked the top five on any of its weeks of release but word of mouth. was kind for it. It did linger in theaters for a while it was a modest earner and went through the holidays and then it took in two thousand, eight million dollars overall in the US, which is pretty good for a John Carpenter film. Unfortunately, the production budget was twenty, four million dollars, and that's not including all the advertisements and the printing of the films and all that other stuff that causes overhead but it did make money back if you want to consider that it was successful with international markets as well. So in the end. It was a hit even though it did not make very much money above what Columbia paid for certainly a big disappointment when you want to compare it to what e t took in. But despite all of that I do think that Starman as a movie, it's very underrated I think it's an overlooked gem by John. Carpenter fans. I. Feel like so many other of his genre films are picked out by genre. Lovers for instance, horror film fanatics really love obviously Halloween, the thing and some of his other films and a lot of his. Fans feel like this is much more of a mainstream or commercial type movie for him not necessarily much more virtuous movie definitely more of a crowd pleaser. So they tend to ride it a little bit more than some of his other films. Carpenters name is above the title when you buy it. So some of his fans may be disappointed seeing him take on such a light romantic film generally disregarded in his overall body of work has an autour but I feel that this definitely showcases John. Carpenter's strengths as a director as somebody WHO's committed. To the story and storytelling, he does tell a story quite well despite all of the contrivances and the shortcuts that he needs to take. You ultimately do come to care about these characters and you're interested in their plight enough to make it to the end, and that's why I will give starman three and a half stars out of four three, nine stars on ice into they do think this man is a good film and I definitely recommend it for people who like this kind of movie if you're a romantic comedy fan especially if You have an inkling toward science fiction. You definitely will get a lot of mileage out of Starman. Certainly, it's a movie I've seen quite a few over the years I introduced my wife to it for the purpose of this review she had never seen before and she came away. She's not a big sci-fi fan necessarily, but she came away really enjoying it as well. So three and a half stars out of four is what I think star earns. Now before I go I do have a few notes that I do want to talk about. Nine hundred eighty six, Michael Douglas did produce a TV show for ABC that was based on star man and actually was a sequel but much leader Starman had Robert Hayes in the star man role at set about fourteen years after the events of this movie and Feature Starman man who assumes that different body that's why it's Robert Hayes in not jeff bridges and we also beat his teenage son they're searching for the missing Jenny Hayden. It did only last one season however didn't find a mass audience, but he did find a cult audiences enough for them to have during the time that it was on. The air they met worth starman celebrations because they really did enjoy this premise at least at the time. It is beloved TV show for those people who took an in in the mid nineteen s Michael Douglas he enjoyed with John Carpenter did with Armand enough to ask him to direct usually fatal attraction, which would have been a definitely an interesting choice to helm that film but unfortunately, carpenter hated the script for fatal attraction called it a knockoff of play misty for me, which was coincidentally a film that was written by Star Man's Dean, Reisner back in the day for Clint Eastwood in the Early Nineteen Seventies. Instead one of the directors that carpenter replaced Onstar man replaced him on fatal attraction Adrian Lyne, the Gig and it became a huge success it twenty sixteen co-producer Michael. Douglas was still involved trying to make a remake of Star Matt. He developed a film with Sean Lee as the director in Irish I'm L. as the screenwriter. The new version promised to have this younger caste, but little has been heard of this project after its announcement in two thousand sixteen. Twenty eighteen though in the interviews Jeff Bridges revealed that he and Karen Allen had cussing coming back for his starman sequel independent of the one that Douglas was trying to do with Levy they were disappointed that they were not even asked to participate in that remake. You feel that they should come back to do another starman film. Certainly, that would be interesting for Starman fantasy I. I don't know if there are enough vance to justify the amount of money and time and effort to put into remain so it may never come about but I definitely would be interested in seeing it if it ever does. To be seen, I don't want to get my hopes up. Thank you so much for listening. Hope that you enjoy this retrospective look at starman. If you have your own thoughts on star mandate, you want to impart to me maybe something I missed or maybe something that you want to echo in terms of how I feel about this film, you can find my contact information that my website that's. Clips through Dot Net Q. Wip S. T. E. R. Dot, net I, e mail address least my twitter feed facebook pages scrammed any of those ways adequate to get in touch with me on any subject that you want as far as what I'm going to be talking about next week it's a film I actually mentioned during the body of this review. It's another movie that does get comparisons to et. Although it's much more of an independent film, definitely an Indie Film vibe not an easy to find. Nowadays, you might have to this. Ebay. For a copy of this or maybe check your local library. They might actually have it there because it's not an easy to find. At least here in twenty twenty, it called the brother from another planet written and directed and edited by John Sales who did nights guys that eventually became et and I will be talking about that which I haven't caught since I was in college and I was very much enamoured of the film at that time to watch it a few times the brother from another planet from nine hundred four until Dan, thank you so much for listening and joining me on his trip around the world in eighties movies.

Anyway wow segues segues glor- sorry about that guys one last segue before we get into the tonight's telling we can tell you about the things that were drinking you guys want to know if people don't drink beer or cider like we don't fucking care too bad you wanna know about wine and alcohol. You let us known woolsey cambridge thirty seconds ahead so i am drinking from hermit thrush brewery a senate athem the so close. I think we just got this. Because it was something i couldn't say. But there's there's there's a thrush on it which is a bird and it kinda looks like a crow actually looks more like a raven but either way. There's crows in nine inch nails perfect drug video. Where the ravens. We're launching either way. We're reaching it's a really good fucking beer. It is a kettle soured pale ale. And it's just god it's delicious hermit. Thrush is one of my absolute favorite breezed pretty much because they only make sours and they're fantastic hours as they should be because they're very expensive. Yeah they are so you get. They're not too bad but yeah once they get over here for some reason. It's like it's like you pay thirty bucks for a four pack. You go pay thirty bucks. Were this four-pack. You're gonna fucking love him. Yeah this one might be a contender for best beer. The air Oh and also. I am drinking abandoned. Hard cider. Sure hopped version. The cool thing about this site ary though is that they go to abandoned Apple orchards around the hudson valley in new york and gather all of their apples. Or that explains the funky taste. That's why tastes kind of their their haunted. It's haunted concert. Came back on fucking did it man. We did it did it. All right goodnight folks next week. Hope you enjoyed the episode where you did it but on that now maybe we should go into it. Yeah let me get into the story. It's going to be the last to cover we do again. This is just part. One of two so many would argue before nine inch nails. Industrial just wasn't seen in the mainstream but once they became successful with radio hits. This band would not only catch the average radio listener off guard with catchy hooks it would also influence rock for years to follow though. I don't think it's fair to call nine inch nails a band. They really aren't just one guy. Yeah nine inch. Nails is pretty much. The music project of one man. Trent ner who will be accompanied by musicians throughout his career but really nine inch nails. And they've they've kind of constantly been revolving yeah he has a revolving door of musicians. I think at this point. He's a little bit more stable and his compatriots but get into a routine once. You get older. So i get it. He's changed a lot part one. Trent reser is going to be v. Different than part to trenton wrestler. Yeah let me just lay that out. His story is a lengthy one trying to someone who stays busy and not only has many of his own projects but has worked with other artists on their own projects as well. I think it would be unfair. Not to acknowledge how much of a hard worker he is. And how he truly deep dives in everything he creates. Michael trent reser was born on may seventeenth nineteen sixty five a whole on israel. Names mike. oh come on. Well i see why. He went with trent into that he newcastle pennsylvania. He's worried about fifty miles from pittsburgh. He was named after his father. Michael so june. Oh he's a junior. Or i don't know if he's a junior. I think he's just michael and establish michael which less sense to me. I'm like if you're gonna fucking name or could have to go balls out. But all right trend decided to go by his middle name instead to avoid confusion and like we said it was the better choice. Yeah because like we say every time to twenty. I mike mike. Get rid of all the mics. I mean no. Don't get rid of the mike current. Mike's can stay just no more. No more. Mike's yeah oh were you thinking name and your kid mike. You're allowed. it's against the rules now. Trent took to music in his childhood at the age of five his grandmother had him begin piano lessons which showed an immediate aptitude with in school. He got involved with band programs where he learned. Both the tenor sax. And the tuba. Tenor sax tuba tenor sax. And to babe and actually. I failed to write this in here. But he and his sister ended up living ended up living with their grandparents because when they were younger their parents got divorced and his mom was basically. I can't take care of two kids. Yeah i'm a single mom like this isn't gonna work so he ended up being cared for by grandparents. What year seymour sixty okay. Nineteen seventy yeah. He's gonna live with his grandparents. Take piano he goes in through school. He learns tenor sax and two books. He joined all the bands jazz band and marching band to babe. Babe babe babe. But he didn't limit himself to just instruments. He also became involved in theater at school. Starring in shows like jesus christ superstars judas anthem music man as the main character herald. Just want you to make sure try reisner in the music man because hold up. I can see him as judas in superstar mode. I don't know the music man. Al warney musical irene. How is that different musical there. But this one's particularly like this is like what you think of when you think of musicals les mis or hamilton where there's like drama historical shit. Yes lake it's just music it's cheesy. It's yeah i don't know. I don't even like it so anyway i was. I was like really the music man all right. I guess that this would all push him to win. A best in drama award from his classmates was quite talented king amongst his peers. Yeah i he was a pretty friendly kid. He had a decent childhood like he really. we are. we saying we have two weeks in a row with musicians with decent childhoods. What's going on like are. We agnes divorced parents but i think like overall lake. His grandparents really picked up the slack on that he never felt like a lack of love. It yeah yeah. I mean like yeah he he always said like. I didn't have a bad childhood. But he just knew this. Wasn't it like yeah. This area this functional but fine. Yeah like his grandparents always encouraged him and he had a lot of opportunities to explore himself. Creatively yeah overall. You know he would. He was felt he was missing. Something Like his life was a little too sheltered he would watch. Tv and movies read books and magazines and all of this would inspire him to do more with his life than spend the rest of it in small town usa. Good for him right. His grandmother wanted to pull from school so he could pursue piano full-time hopefully become a classical pianist pianist. Yes try really hard not to say like penis but here you know it's pianist. The pianist however while trent loved music classical wasn't really as chan at this point he was finding influence with the more outrageous musicians musicians of the time. Like david bowie and Can you guess. Can you guess who else he really liked. Who else does every pretty much. At least i feel like everybody from the seventies reference. It could have been so many people we bitch about it all the time. Oh my god. No i might as my mind blank. I don't know hint stars at cats involved kiss. Oh and starring kids start getting k- kid start what's fantasy circus on guy. Just their own pok mon. They pretty much are You can't really tell them apart In nineteen eighty-three. Trent was off to college but not for music which you'd think he'd go for but instead for computer engineering and honestly that would prove to be just as helpful for him on probably the better one to go for anyway so smart and it's not like he was out of music completely. It was here that he joined his first legit band option thirty. A new wave band became quite popular in the western pennsylvania eastern ohio college area Trip became tired of it quickly because he didn't have much say in the music writing process he just saying and played keyboards and he felt. His creativity was pretty stifled. You can look up on youtube. Option thirty okay. You can find them doing a cover of der commerce. You're singing it. And i just want you to pick razor singing teno round your in town. It's delightful. it's so i wanna see this oak. Oh god and he had like kind of like subtle flock of seagulls feather and who. It's good it's good sharable. College option thirty was a short lived experience as he would drop out a year later so he can move to cleveland ohio where he would more actively pursue a career in music. Initially he got a job as a sales person at a keyboard audio shop. Just to kinda you know. Have money where he quickly made friends with a man named coster who was opening records a recording studio called right track studios. He was impressed. Trend skills and knowledge of music and the equipment that came along with it so he offered him a job nice. This had to be one of the most important connections. Trent maiden his life because he would gain access to all the tools necessary to create his own music. Yeah talk about replacing time seriously. But before then he was still trying to trying his hand at playing with a band In cleveland he bounced around a few groups. New most notably synth pop band called exotic. Birds also is to see him dressed up four. I like that. They pretty much just name themselves after a corner of a pet store they're parakeets just fucking willing not even that specific they're not parakeets. They're not lovebirds. They're just what's always an eight exotic birds and just exotic birds and you get there and it's just cockatiels and fuck in all kinds of hair keats all of them it's bullshit that's what it is. Also a member of exotic birds. Was andy cougs eski. Who would later join stabbing westward owe. Wow okay who possess ski. I butchered his name nearly gay. I like that was ski. I'm sorry anti trump became a keyboard and backup vocalists for that group and this actually gained a lot of local popularity and they are even getting some nationwide opportunities like opening for culture club and performing as a fictional band called the problems in a movie called light of day featuring michael j. fox and joan jett. We talked about that in our joan jett episode. I don't remember that we did that. Yeah we definitely did and everyone said that she was pretty good at acting for a rock and roll lady. Oh wacky wacky look at this wacky lady but alas trent still found himself to be unhappy with his limited contributions in a band and decided he would be more comfortable going solo. Good for him for him through his job at the recording studio he was granted access to use it when no one else was which meant the nighttime so all day he would work as bad off as a janitor slash audio engineer and at night he would walk. He would go into work and start composing and recording his own pieces of music. This just is ripe for like a funny clip thing. But it's weird. Because he would just he would legit cleaned toilets and everybody city actually did a great job as a janitor picturing him like plunging a toilet and then just like stopping in the middle because somebody's having a meltdown in just walking out to the soundboard pushing some binds. Like are you okay now. Can i plunged the toilet now. you're fucking clogged up. Now i have to go and fix it but let me fix your fucking sound. I can i go back and deal with your shit and the toilet. Okay we're good. Okay thanks you wanna know why he was so angry. Fucking pretty hate machine. Because he was plunging toilets hall. Because these alcoholic fat ass producers were like clogging toilets. He came up with terrible live. I go in terrible terrible hall too much in this whole to those are the original alerts guys. We did it. God also the original lyrics were head like a hole sicker this whole circle rather die than plunging this whole i just get someone out there. Please relate all of the songs on all ago angry janitor. Trent reser angry janitor dropping sue. Oh all right so initially tried to put a band together to help him through the process but he was never able to find quite the right group of musicians to capture the sound. He was going for so inspired by prince. He played all the parts himself and then put them together. Yeah i did not realize. The prince did that. But trent was like. I read once. That prince did that. And i said i'm going to do that too now. There's quite a few bands that do that. Yeah i mean. Dave dave grohl did it on their first album. Yeah lot of people are like kevin townsend. Does it like does it doesn't really i'll just fucking do it. He played the keyboard and guitar himself and then for drums used a drum machine and samples. Use the sequencing on macintosh plus and went really heavy on the sense for like a very electronic sound the result would be his demo called the purest feeling containing a handful of versions of songs of eventually end up on his first. Lp okay you can find this on youtube. And i listened to a good chunk of it and some of these sound really fucking different like down in. It sounds way different in the demo than it does like it. Almost sounds like a disco song. Also about plunging toilets plunging toilets to being a musician. He was down in. It was now. He's up above it. All my god whole first album was just about schick guys. It was really just about how much he hated being janitor. We found the real thing about pretty eight machine. See machine was the toilet prewar. Wasn't that one guy that like just eight shits and just show all over the place and he was the hate machine it was all. I think trent was the machine. I cannot with the ship machine anymore coming up with a name for the project. He came close to calling it the crown of thorns but instead opted for nine inch nails because as he said it sounded menacing. Catchy in could easily be abbreviated A crown of thorns is a little to jesus. Yeah i think he was kinda going for that to lake freak people out so when he's talking about nine inch nails. Is he talking about kind of like the nails. That nailed jesus to the cross. See there's a lot of conspiracies like that one that it's about freddy krueger's long nails and he's sitting knots. None of those. It's just because. I thought it sounded cool. 'cause i always imagined it as like you know the lady in the guinness book of world records with the longest. Now that's all i ever pictured. That's that's now any say crown-of-thorns i'm like maybe it's a jesus reference yet. The some people have speculated that but he's said now it really was just it sounded. Cool all right which is plausible. I mean he was only like fuck twenty. maybe around the time early twenties. Yeah so he could have spent through school. And i mean for what it's worth. Trent will prove threatens entire career that he is very good at marketing He understands branding. He understands what he wants his branding like what his sound is. And what's good for the brand and what's not good for the brand. Exactly like he is a very uncompromising person when it comes to people getting their people getting trying to get a say in like how to package something or make something look for him. It's he could make the coal nine inch nails logo it's synonymous like you can see it and you know it. He understood that that is important. Yeah you know someone seeing that a mile away. Oh that's chanels. Yeah he wanted that kind. Of nobility trump got himself a manager in john mom who was the former manager of exotic birds at petco affect the band. No at petco. Trent made friends with he was looking for kimble for his dog. Goes and this guy walks up is like hey like exotic birds not since i left the band. And he's like no. i mean like parakeets. he's like no parakeets are cool. Yeah okay yeah. Yeah maybe cockatiel. It's exotic so. John shopped the demo. Around until he finally got an offer from a label called tv t records. Trent then reworked. The song's off the demo. As well as creating some new tunes to put on the debut album he worked with a few talented producers for this including idol of his mark. Ellis not related to you relation to me better known as flood. Definitely no relation to me. He has worked with the likes of you to new order. Depeche mode among others. So he's made a good solve good roster of electronic band right. that's that's totally uptrend. Sally while the sense sound was popular. The initially felt that the songs were a little to be and wanted to go for a more dark and raw sound so they discuss getting real drums on the tracks but ultimately everyone agreed it sounded better with the drum machine samples And this is where. I can really relate to trek translate. I fucking can't drum. I have zero beats in this body me. He's never said it but the fact that he doesn't ever play drums leads me to believe homeboy is like me and it's like ooh please don't send me in front of it. You gotta have a panic. I cannot do that. You want me to clap and stopped my foot at the same time. No not going to happen. It's not happening. I'm sorry there have been a few times trenton. Play drums once in a while. But it's minimal yeah. The resulting album was called. Pretty hate machine was drawn and claustrophobic album reflective of the way trent feeling at the time because he was constantly working he began to have trouble functioning society as one normally would He's already kind of an introvert. And then he's pretty much stopped having a social life because i work all day work all night and they traumatized by cleaning toilets. He's fucking cleaning toilets. Hog was like. I can't yeah well. Everyone who worked on it. Love the outcome. The label hated it. They wanted the brighter since sounds. That were in the demo. The told trent point blank. You ruined this album. What label was this. Tv t records. Who were more known for doing work with lake commercial products. Yeah tv soundtrack. Like when you met trent. Or what did you think was gonna happen. We just thought he was in a trick. We thought he was going to make like a david bowie album. No kkk however critic seemed to have the hardest time properly categorizing. This work and i was reading through the reviews. They were calling it anything from rock to synth pop to dance all fucking know what this is. This is something no one had really heard before we weren't really sure what to do with it. Where is that one. Journalist gets it right in coins a new term. Because there's always that. I don't know some asshole. I'm sure there from any enemy you know ordering because you know oh i you know what i'd bet it was karang. Yeah yeah but either way. It was a fucking bob to be shore One of the box that i had previously mentioned down in it actually ended up having a pretty silly story attached to it with the music video so they didn't have much budget so they kind of had to they brought in a couple directors but like they mostly. Did everything pretty low budget. They're carrying these camcorders around in the premise. Is that trump. Trent is running around from these. Two guys who are actually Band members chris. Frenna and richard patrick And he they're chasing him through an industrial park and like the running through warehouses and he gets on this roof and And it ends with him falling from the building and lying dead on the ground but order catch that shot they had to lake put balloons on the camera to like have it lift up and they had to detached ropes to clamp down. Yes they could pull it back down. Will the ropes detached and the camera just flew. This just sounds like a harebrained scheme on a cartoon like this shit does it actually work in real life which way they still managed to get the shop but then later on what had happened. Was the camera basically landed in some farmers land. Oh no he found it in michigan and he found it and he's like oh this might be the fbi looking for we'd feel what yeah want cameras to balloons and just go. Okay find it marijuana with absolutely no way of trying to track the camera so then the the fbi. The fbi thinks it's murder. It's the snow because it was trent dead on the ground. And the average him in like corn syrup and all the staff look super dead. So there we found a snuff film and they eventually tracked it down to like trenton. Like the whole group and they're like grilling them real hard. Like who did you kill. It treads like hi. I'm right here and they're like never mind like i love it. That's the most ridiculous thing i've ever heard. That is hilarious. Overall pretty hate machine was well received. And he toward it with consistent band alongside acts like jesus and mary chain as well as gaining a spot on the nineteen. Ninety-one lollapalooza tour. It was the first one i was going to say. Is that the inaugural lollapalooza inaugura palooza. Despite the success. Nine inch nails was beginning to see this release. It seems that trent was having issues. Adjusting to a life of fame. Fan base was growing and many including the leave or wondering. When are you gonna be releasing her next record. When did he release that. I won so pretty. Hate machine was eighty nine okay. That's what i thought and this was before grunge was grunge straight like i think happening simultaneously. I mean the the grunge was baby. Yeah some critics tried to be like. I mean like lyrically. He's never you bring anything new to the table because grunge thirty doing this now. Pretty sure you're wrong but whatever they think that was a review from the ep. That's coming out next. And i'll get to okay because at that point nirvana had kind of come on the scene. It would be ninety one. Yeah and then pearl jam in south garden. Were making noise right then. But i still don't think they're comparable and i don't think comparable at all. But i think they both invoke that feeling that i'm sure gen xers were peddling super early. Lee eighty super early nineties. Like i'm fucking frustrated because flake and eighty s and regan was bullshit and we have nothing to live for kind of bullshit. Pretty there was massive amounts of pressure from tv t to not only make the next record but how to make the next record. They were trying to tell lease only house today to use like everything. Tell me how to do my job. You assholes and if we've learned anything about trent at this point is that he does not like someone else putting their dirty fingers all over his creative process. Yeah so that wasn't going to be cool. He began to fall into a deep pit of misery and depression after a pretty terrible experience opening for guns and roses. Oh no yeah. On a tour for a few of their shows now yet. Trend was at his wits end. Wanted out of his contract and it was a terribly that would be a good idea. I forgot whose idea was. Because i was reading about it and i was watching a video about it. But it was fucking terrible like they were buddha. I mean think about guns and roses. Fans there asshole. Think about pretty soon still. Roses fans are still assholes. Sorry guys you're assholes maybe you're not you know if you're one of those not asshole concern rosa's fans via overall experience people like booing them and throwing shit at them and they're like we don't wanna do. The senate bowl cannot get back with. Jesus and mary chain. I think that works better. I wanna go home. Go home gus. Tv t wouldn't hear anything about trent leaving his contract and so began a sneak around where he would record music. Different pseudonyms and different places on the label wouldn't be wise to what he was doing And while this was going on his manager. John was working to move nine inch nails to a better label situation. I like this manager right. He learned a lot working at petsmart. He learned a lot from exotic. Birds mean who didn't ultimately he got. The band moved to interscope records. When jimmy i o vian managed to buy out trends contract from tv t and then gave him his own label within Interscope interscope called nothing records. Yes initially. Trent felt like he was involved in some kind back door deal since he really had no say in what was going on. And he's like. Did i just get like traded to another talking company. That's gonna make me tell me what to do. They give you your own sub label. He just didn't know what was going on but he was relieved after talking to jimmy and discovering that he wanted nothing for trent to have creative freedom A jimmy i of venus in an interesting man yes but like credit where credit's due. He knows talent when he sees it he is very much willing to let it flourish. I'm not sure on the details. But i know he sent some super shady bullshit and i feel like he's probably a lot like tommy mottola in the sense. That tommy mottola was the fucking shit head of human being and a horrible person and an abuser but musically. He did amazing things for people's careers. I wouldn't say. I don't get the feeling of abuser from jimmy. I of now. But i got like that slime bucket to be a fucking manager for record label. I don't know how deep it goes jimmy. I have seen. But i know how deep it goes with. Thomas hola right. Well i will say i. I actually learned. Some stuff financials from the defiant ones documentary. Hbo and that's pretty good. Yeah and it gives you an idea of who jimmy. I o vinas and interesting but i mean he's the head of a record label. Do grosse shit. Oh yeah and so. It was under nothing records where he released his first. Ep broken it contains eight tracks and was once again produced by flood at the time. Trent was going through tough break-up and he was worn thin from dealing with record label. Be us feared. That would have been seen as selling out. An overall was just exhausted from executive and depression. The music in any are accompanying would put the despair and tortured soul of this man on display. Yeah like broken and you do a deep dive like shit. This man is an odd thing is wrong. Yeah and he needs help. He needs hug. Maybe an ice cream sandwich and it's funny as a kid. I appreciate broken that much. I didn't really like broken and now as an adult. I definitely really like broken. Actually full disclosure never heard of it. It's really good. Wish wish came off a broken. Don't james made it. You would probably be like. Oh i know i'm just i'm full. Stop just a casual nine inch nails. I'm i've never taken a deep dive or anything. I love the fragile. I liked the downward spiral. I really liked with teeth. And that's pretty much all. I really got like super into yeah. I think that's like pretty on perfomers people. Yeah but if you heard wish you might know it. Just because that's one of the ones that became a pretty popular single for him But anyway so broken really loses the sound of since and is much than what came before the lyrics are critique on society mostly shouted by trent in a showcase of him shedding any shield. He had on before you can experience his true angst like holy shit this man is hurting clearly steppingstone for. What's going to come next if you listen to pretty hate machine broken downward spiral this checks on taking me on a journey that i don't know if i consented to go on i. I don't think i was ready for it. Four and a p. This album ended up impressing critics and fans alike going platinum only three months after its release september. Ninety two ray. It's an ep. An ep went platinum. Y'all this barely ep. Though i think it's only ap because length but there are eight songs on it to the last two or covers one is. You're so physical which is a cover of an atom and the ansong. Oh it's really funny. I love adamant i know you do. I thought you'd appreciate that you're listening to pro cash good. Maybe that will end up on a best covers episode. it's very. It's very an inch nails. And like i said it produced the nine inch nails staple with the song wish which won him a grammy for best heavy metal performance. Oh you mean. They didn't give it to death row toll and at that but it's the nineties and controversial. Music is gonna controversy instead of the typical music video for a single nine inch. Nails instead created a short horror musical film for broken. It's Gruesome really thought it was a real snuff film so there is It excludes one of the songs and the two covers basically for the entire album of broken. They do like a video okay. So at this point. Trent wanted to avoid the possibility of becoming a radio friendly unit shifter and did so by creating this movie. He hired peter christopherson of the groups. Coil and throbbing gristle to direct the film. Both clients already like out there. Fucking bands basically is about twenty minutes and tells the quote unquote story. Okay of a man. Being kidnapped off the streets he is tortured and forced to watch films of torture mutilation until the same fate befalls him and it's filmed like very realistically The most banned video out of this would be happiness in slavery which features bob fallon again. Fell lanigan bob. Flanagan sounds dirty well. He's an infamous massacres performance. Artist sounds dirty unido. Yeah y-y'all frills in the video. He's naked on a table and he is being pleasure and then murdered by machine. And you see so. I heard a lot about this video and what was like. Nah i'm not gonna watch it. I'm not gonna watch fuck all right. I'm gonna watch some of it. And i watch it's hard. It's it's a lot so like i said it's like the story of a guy who picks up a guy on the streets and brings him into a like assault type torturer. Yeah which by the way this is way before saw anything creepy like may like this is way before ally roth like. These were clearly inspired by broken. And it's like very. It's basically filled with a home video camera. A thirty five millimeter so like the torture that the dude is doing on the kid in the chair and then hillock plot his teeth and then make him watch a video and like it'll be one of the songs wishes. Fine wishes like actually just the band performing lake in like a mad max style thunderdome and then like being taken over by the maddening group at the end. Okay but then happiness in slavery lake. They all look polished. They look like kind of like a horror movie torture porn horror movie. You'd see nowadays okay. But then like you'll go back to the actual lake. you know footage of someone being tortured. And and that show like an watching more chainsaws there's got chainsaws can handle. Whatever just do not. Oh no chance no. Yeah and there's like just can't bat is worse fucked up is it. Is it any worse than like Who is that series. It's not visions of death. Oh yes fuck in. Its along those lines okay. The many faces of death faces of death death. Yeah along those lines like people have compared to. I've seen faces of death. And i'm like half the shit's fake anyway. And the other half like me. Will you know me. I have a hard time with body. Gore i kinda don't and that makes me scared for myself really toe. You actually could probably watch and be fine. I just have a hard time. Because i don't think body gore. Yeah i don't mind it in a slasher film because it's still me. The only thing that like weirds me out is like sexual stuff. That's involved the would freak you out. I don't like this because it is everything. This gives me weird feelings in l. Like it yeah. Men went like watching happiness in slavery. Day do some things to those. And ball's coming. But i will say for what it's worth. Bob van flanagan sounds like an interesting human being. He has since passed away but his sisters. Cystic fibrosis oh right. But also was like a sado-masochist performance artist. So maybe he liked having cystic fibrosis. I don't know. Is that how that works. I don't think so. I don't get it but mostly just fucked with his dick and balls honestly know that her. Yeah all right so you can watch broken. Don't happiness in slavery all right all right so when the phone was finish both trenton. Peter watched it and realize maybe they are maybe like. Maybe we shouldn't release this. We're not gonna release. No we're not gonna do this. We're going to do it so it truly became a snuff film in a way like. I don't wanna watch this. This is like shit. You'd see on rotten dot com. And yes they wanted to create something. That was really scary. That felt real but this was a little mice. Basically the only time the only place you can get this now is probably on the dark web. Oh i i just like you. Just youtube You can't youtube it. But i went incognito on google just in case google broken nine inch nails fell and there was an article from might have been crying. That makes sense because they're probably just like fuck at british. Internet can show all that she posted right out there and actually turn said like he just wants to post in vivo and be like whatever now every fucking watching anymore. It's twenty twenty. It's all different. Also america get over it. Get over the dick and balls. Get over the weird gore. Don't watch it if we don't wanna watch it then don't watch. It was funny though because even though they're like we're not gonna show it to people you know we're not going to release it translates stomach some copies and circulate with my friends and it was funny as he really put a certain like marker on each of the films so that he would know who leaked video do anything about. I just wanna who did it. Yeah i thought was funny. Yeah it's fucked up very curious. Like i am just kinda bloop bloop through it's fine. Open that incognito tab. i don't think you have to. I know what would happen if you don't want like your mom knowing. Yeah if you want your mom to know definitely incognito. If you don't want your mom see it going. Mom should not see this snow. Don't leave that up on your web browser. Don't show this to your mother. Don't do not show her this video. Hey see how the mother for me but do not you know. During the creation of broken trent was in the market to create a new studio space and one near his new label. In la would be pretty helpful. It would be so we ended up moving into a home at one hundred fifty cielo drive in los angeles That sounds familiar ceelo drive. Is that the sharon tate house. Oh it is the sharon tate house. Though former home of roman polanski and sharon tate shin or charles manson and his followers began to end the summer of love with the murderer. Sharon tate and her four companions sets the hilter skelter house. The hilter skelter house. She has her skilton. He'll i think. I thought skelter fucking idiots either way either way so. I have read several articles on this. And some say that trent didn't know and then some don't really say whether he knew or not and then some say he found out right after he bought it He bought it. Oh i know a heated. He was at a pretty low point at this point and Just becoming all consuming with anything dark and filled with symbolism of society breaking down. He wanted to use this house as a way to explore. Humidity's obsession with the moralist. Parts of society you know like serial killers and truth. Think he did no he knew. I don't know something happen buying it or he knew after buying it and just embraced it. Okay but either way like. He did embrace initially being in this home. Yeah also if you're really into like go see shit. There's a really great episode of ghost hunters were. They investigated this house and it will make you shake your pants. Shit you pay on. Yeah it was. It's a really really good episode. Well he was definitely into it because he dubbed. It lay pig. Yeah that's what it called the studio and it was here that he wrote and recorded a majority of broken and its follow up the downward spiral and he would end up completing the ladder at a different location though because he had a come to jesus moment with sharon tate's sister. Oh yeah it was a chance. Meeting one day very brief encounter but she asked him if he was exploiting her sister's death by living there and this took trente back. He told her that wasn't his intention all but once someone actually made him think about it we we. How the fuck did they meet though like to you that he got. I don't know if she just came to his place. And like like yeah. We need to talk. I don't know the total details behind how they ended up meeting up. But trent talks about this meeting. Okay talks about how he never even thought about any of this about how it would affect her family. How it looks for him to live there. You know once someone actually made him think about what he was doing he released. How fucking messed up. It was he moved out in nineteen ninety-three and in one thousand nine hundred. Four new owners bought the house. Tore it down so we the tory down where it was torn down. I don't think it was torn down I'm pretty sure it was not torn down off to re. I don't know like the sources. I found like a lot of the article. Said somebody tore it down. But 'cause i'm pretty sure in the episode of ghost hunters. It was still. The original house was at the law. Bianca house oh maybe it was la bianca house. Yeah we were the la bianca house that was right after the tape murders. They were like. Let's do this again. And they went to The rich people the bianca's the husband and the wife knows definitely the sharon tate house. I don't know maybe they renovated it and maybe like towards some of it down. Maybe i don't know. But i'm pretty sure it was the original house in that episode because it was fucked up shit about haunted houses so i will not speak to that. He was leaving that situation. Nine inch nails fame rose to its peak march ninety four saw the release of the downward spiral which is still their most commercially successful. Release to this day A concept album that explains the downward spiral of a man who is dealing with depression and addiction and kills himself in a search for a sense of peace. I never really realised. Tone stanley depressing. This album was oh no it. Yes i did. I always know how. Depressing the selma's. If you catch me listening to downwards shits bad you know i need a host to major records. Were cited as influences for this album. David bowie's low of course and pink. Floyd's the wall both of which deal with similar issues of drug dependence and deep personal issues. All three very much represent a mood. I going to say that mood. I deal with helplessness frustration. Apathy right. I feel like all of us have been slowly like very very slowly listening through all of the downward spiral for the last four years. Yeah yeah it's finally kind of sort of ended but now we're just feeling like dejected. And no energy whatsoever and we're just like fine that's the actual ending of the downward spiral fine. Jr guys i did it. I guess we're onto the next album. Well not many trans life suggested that he go on prozac during this time. They were concerned about the dark place he was in. He outright refused for fear that antidepressants will take away his ability to write music the way he wanted to sound a gateway you saying that but as you young but also maybe you should rethink that like again if you really listen through dour by early some of those fucking songs. Yeah but also i get. That drugs are for everybody. Not totally get that. Look at your life. Look at your choices. But it's also to let something help you out for a little bit if you need a little boost. For hot second cure is fine. serotonin Valuable this also turned into more alcohol and drug use and conflicts with band members o. Yuck conflict what's that never happened right guitarist. Richard patrick and trent would have difficulty getting along. Which would eventually lead to. Richard leaving to start his own band filter filter and stabbing westward. Wow wow wow wow wow. Wow he's like all three electron advance from the nineties in whatever weird for the first time. Trent came into creating an album with nothing written out beforehand. You would go into the studio every day and make up music based on feeling the band would assistant arrangements and they would have samples based on each part he would then process them to the point of total expression so it didn't sound like music. It sounded more like a feeling and again we'll see a downward spiral. I can't tell the fucking instruments are i can just tell like despair and holy shit. Everything's on fire. Closer was on downwards correct. God that was a huge hit. Yeah i'll gets that don't you don't you worry okay. We'll talk about that song. Flood came back to help produce this album but it would be the last time he and trent began to have unresolvable creative differences. Mostly it seems that trenton had just gone into such a dark place that most of the time flood just found. Like yo you to- you're going to far dude but also us ellis's don't know how to react to things like that as an can not be enough trend the fuck your feelings right now and i need you to not be so feelings needs to be less fell feelings. Right let less feelings is better. yeah. I don't process emotions. Despite all his heavy content the album was apparently what everyone was looking for. It debuted at number two on the billboard charts in one thousand nine hundred. Eighty eight was declared. Quadruple platinum wow. Yup critics praised. Its abrasive sound unrelenting subject matter all right so now we can talk about closer. Okay all right back. We're gonna talk about closer. It's time for closer song. You all know nine inch nails for you. Don't even need to say that the fuck you like an animal song if you will In trent hates that this has become a fuck boyfriend anthem. You even have added to their with trend. Will you even have diva tommy lee talking about it being the all-time fuck saw tommy. Lee like fuck you looking. Animal trend knew what he was doing. Way too like not even try to dig below the surface with good job. Tommy lee don't expect anything else from you. L. it checks. Let's just say that the truth is it's deeper and sadder than that it's about self hatred and obsession is about someone who's using sex to save themselves from 'isolation you can one hundred percent here that in the lyrics in the vocal delivery health me. Yeah get away from myself. Yeah like this is not somebody who is writing a song about like carnal lust for beautiful woman. It's i want to fuck something. So i don't have to deal with what's going inside of my head. Yeah yeah one hundred percent. They're hoping sex will give them control at least one aspect of their life. But now when i say that and you go back to the fuck boyfriend anthem another mind. This checks yeah. Maybe this is accurate. Yeah maybe that's why it's a fuck boy anthem because awfully always got is always wanna fuck. That's all they got. Yeah of course. This is perfect for tommy lee. I would hope he's full of self loathing. That makes me so sad for fuck boys. No it doesn't but like it does. I already felt sad for you. Not bad for you. But i pity you already. He's fine salako more. If you think that this is your anthem to fuck to talk to so cool yeah off. The songs certainly scared. Her parents considering screams fuck right in the open. Book your parents who listening to in here. Jesus and the music video needed to be censored due to explicit content. Oh my stars but if you even watch the video you should feel more uneasy than sexy about it. Yeah like earned their pigs heads and shit like others naked chick but she's basically like bald and like holding this lays attractive. She's unnerve ing right. She's not there to be like your dick hard yet. It'd be like i'm going to rip your dick like fucking cow. Skull on top of her nakedness is not there for your arousal. It's to make you uncomfortable. Yes there's a monkey hanging on across this entire video and song are just here to make you uncomfortable. Not make you wanna fuck tommy lee although my favorite part is like there's just trent standing with a seashell in his hand and you're like why are you standing with what it has nothing. Why don't we think about it. Did you see my seashell. This is my favorite one of my collection. I've got an entire collection. Would you like to see it. This is my pastime. I go to beaches and collect c. Show this is my favorite one. Looks of what it's like. Oh trend i found a whole intact. See saying dollar once not even a scratch on it. If you shake it you can hear the sand and the dollar. That was a joke. There's no dollar sand dollar dark places. Seashells guys his rock bottom bottom and even by another song. To bring about controversy was big man was a gun which somehow got flagged by conservative christians as an attack on us conservatives by claiming that it was a metaphor that they were having some jingoistic agenda. I wanna rip may bring out of my skull. During the whole like sensor thing and like to puck and snoop and they're all on interscope and everybody was on interscope at this point the conservatives are just trying to find a reason because they're trying to shut interscope down. I don't even know but did you hear big man with a gun. This is clearly accusing us of being. Jingoistic with our wars and blah blah blah and. It's like no actually. This is one of the songs that's now this is about fucking time. It's actually about sunk it is but it's still a negative song about fucking because it's basically he's making fun of like big men big man. I have a big dick. And i'm gonna fuck you with it. A- at least it's kind of making fun of that. Gross toxic male culture is making fun of rape culture. It's like but it is actually about fucking time it is sorry could serve but also isn't that telling the conservative who making fun of us and it's like aren't we though aren't we also think it's funny that any semi musician comes out with a song. That actually is about a gun being used as a weapon around this time. Especially with people like to pack and biggie and people who actually owned guns and our unfortunately synonymous with guns whenever that made the news. All of these white conservatives are like gun control They should have guns. Why are they shooting off their guns. They shouldn't have guns but now the same fucking people are out there. Like don't turk one my guns. I have an american rent to. It's in the constitution. I have a right to have a gun. Well it's because they're white and they don't want black people said it. Fight me now. I'm not gonna fight. You're i'm going to agree with you. On that cool i like that several months after the downward spiral is released nine inch nails performs at the lame attempt of woodstock to woodstock ninety four. Oh yeah that was bad those whereas stuck ninety nine no not at all but also not great not green. that solidified them as a mainstay. At least as far as rock music goes and skyrocketed them into popularity. Trent felt the pressure to perform from all sides to create a follow up. That would hit this level success again. He began to fall deeper into addiction just in time to do an intense amount of touring cool. Yeah but just always goes over well right right. So began the self destruct tour. Yeah absolutely name. that's the actual name of it. Yeah no thank. It's called this because they have the song. Dour spiral. mr mr self-destruct it's like he's fucking psychic. The wanna lose their edge just because they've gone mainstream so they would perform onstage. Filthy ragged clothes covered in cornstarch. Because they just wanted to look weird and dirty. But i would stop you from sweating too much. It certainly absorb everything. Seriously someone would injure themselves nearly every night either by attacking each other or their instruments or diving into a crowd but honestly this makes sense because like the the nine inch jails that i have in my head on stage looked like ragged pieces of shit that somebody just dug up out of the ground and then tossed a shit ton of baby powder on. Yeah and that's what they look like in the nineties. Yeah that's my image of a performing nine inch nails. It's accurate trend would get himself into some really extreme antics alongside marilyn manson wa had signed to the nothing records label a few years prior. No you would hear us talk about and the marilyn manson episode. But i'm not really gonna talk about him on that and some bonus episodes. Yeah so nutrient you wanna give us some patriot. Money's you can listen to us bitch about that goes for advertising. They would engage in some drug and alcohol. Infused shit shows when the stage. I don't know anything about it in detail. But i heard something about and backstage enema contest. I don't know anything other than backstage. Contests certainly can help you with your mental state. Obviously no it's shelvin shit up your studio right now. The pressure of having to record he's like well fuck. At least it got to be high all the time and release all my stress with the butler event enema. This tour went on from nineteen ninety four until nineteen ninety six just about two years jesus. Two years on a bus with marilyn manson. Oh mean marilyn. Manson was an on every leg of the tour. He was just on some legs. He is only on two legs. Oh that's you many lay. Yeah they were buds. At that point it was fine. They were butts at that point. Oh buddies okay. Pas ways there was a lot of international traveling and the burn out was real but in the middle of things. Trent was surprised with an opportunity to work with someone. He's idolized for most of his life. Thanks to the popularity of the music video for closer. Caught the eye of david bowie. Who didn't think much of nine inch nails before. But now the true depth and potential trent wrestler. David bowie knew it's up. He really did. Call the henry rollins. What's up hotline. Honestly hetero called him sometimes. It was like any newsroom. What's he should tell. People will give me some news. I think i know something about disband. The called nine inch nails video closer. It's interesting. I'm willing to give them a chance. Aren't cool when he called up nine inch nails management. They were initially hesitant as the band was who aped out but when bowie calls you fucking answer. Yeah so they agreed to tour with bowie for six weeks in support of his outside tour. And i think ultimately ended up being a little over two months. It was fun me. The whole thing was a surreal experience arguably at the time. Nine inch nails were outselling bowie but transit. There was no way in hell. He would ever open for them right. He's like nope. We open for bowie but we was working on a more artistic set at the time with some stuff from the berlin trilogy and newer material so they work together to create a comprehensive show that combined the talents of both fans and made for one hell of experience you can google a lot of the performances and they do a fucking amazing job. They basically end up doing a show where it's like they perform with each other for like half the show So that way like nine inch nails fans are happy but we fans are happy. Yeah 'cause there's a lot of times when there's a co headlining show where you never get the two of them on stage at the same time and that's what everyone chooses themselves over if they come out on stage at the same time in even do one song. That's like a cover of somebody else's song that's when people just jizzle over that arena. I mean honestly. I think it was like nine inch nails would perform bowie performed. They perform together. And i think bowie would close it. Yeah but honestly. If i'm gonna tell you to look up anything from this fucking pause the shit you go on youtube and look of david bowie. Nine inch nails hurt. Her is amazing. You know what. I'm gonna say it better than johnny cash is version. Yeah i mean johnny cash's version. I feel like was only emotional. Because he was dying he was he like died right after released it. News right after June carter died like his was more of a circumstantial wives. Good good good. I mean everybody chooses their pants over. Like i'm gonna be old someday. We'll also but also the the nine inch nails original version was fucking gut wrenching. 'cause here's the thing it's about a man who cannot quit his heroin addiction and decides to kill himself. Yeah that's what fucking hurt is about. Was trent on heroin. This i m hesitant to say. We are zero days that heroin incident but everything i've read. I haven't heard him out say during these times that he was doing heroin. I think it was mostly cocaine and alcohol. yeah he didn't strike me as a heroine. Guy i i don't know i don't know i don't know i honestly don't know if someone knows. Please tell me i'm more than happy learn. I feel like everyone knew. He had a very well documented drug addiction and i think people always just dumped him in with the other heroine users because of the time so i can't really tell one way or the other fit was heroin or just not sure lesser definitely cocaine and it was definitely alcohol. Yeah so those were definitely in their backs to the tour so the tour the two got on well on and offstage. They were musicians. Who both felt the need to express their art in strange ways that not everyone was gonna get and they don't compromise for mainstream success. Either it was easy for them to understand each other. Considering everything that bowie had gone through in his lifetime he could see exactly where trend was wearing. Yeah experiencing the out of nowhere fame social anxiety. Depression diction he'd experienced before l. Two times over at that point. Yeah i mean milken peppers. All i gotta say you. Yeah there was a time where Boys cocaine addiction was so bad all he would consume as milk and peppers. That is truly fucking discussed most lila milk mostly the milk. Find the peppers. I can understand. Blake milk really. That's disgusting at times they would be alone and bowie would give joy pieces of advice without condescension onto sunshine. I wasn't gonna say right one. That particularly stuck was quote. You know there is a better way here. And it doesn't have to end in despair or in death in the bottom. While trent wasn't anywhere near trying to get better he appreciated the way. Bowie addressed the issue. Years down the line it would prove useful. And trent would contribute him getting clean to bowie. Yeah or he would contribute bowie to him getting clean. That's it that's how you say that. Contribute him getting cleaned to david. Bowie irregardless seemed if we know what you mean. Yes so good. Didn't do a fucking treasure. But until then homeboy still gobi mess. Even still nine inch nails was beginning to get more and more collaborations with established types. Of course he. Bowie couldn't tore and not do a song together weight and so came. I'm afraid of americans which would end americans. Sorry i'm afraid. I'm afraid i can't help it. That's a pretty fucking song by the way it would end up. Boys nineteen ninety-seven album earthling. But that's not the only david that trent would find himself working with in late nineties. He worked with david lynch on the soundtrack for his film lost highway Created instrumentals for certain scenes and most importantly he wrote a song for the soundtrack. Probably the second jam. Nine inch nails is known for The perfect drug s. And it's funny that it got so popular. Because trent really doesn't care for it yeah that's right he's sleet you pick this for our music music video episode of When we were with our friends at writers bagel basket. Yes you can go check out that episode. That was one of my picks for music video right. Discuss the seir. But yeah he said it's like he doesn't hate it but it's like one of his least favourite pieces of work a throwaway song for soundtrack and he feels like it comes across like that. No i don't think it does it all. I don't either but i guess i can see like through trent's is being like some commercialized piece of crap. I'll write a sweet hook. And then like again boy knows how to market void on solder at a fucking hook. Yeah but also. This is probably one of the most boring songs. Yeah that has ever been as popular as it was closer in perfect. Drug are probably the two most. Pop centered like nine inch nails songs. Like wants to get pop play. Yeah and yeah. They're very jarring. Yeah like the Truncated Strings and the very beginning. Yes seibert bedrooms sold. Like what am i listening to what this makes me feel so uncomfortable. This ascending like vibrations of darkness through my body. But also i like that shit. I'm like dude again out and even like the the way. He delivers the lyrics. The way he delivers his vocals is very like just blurring blinding it out at you just like beers. All of my fucking lyrics was blind with all of these crazy streams in the background. Like low lurks. I don't think it's very mainstream at all and yet it's somehow managed to be a huge hit. Right i mean. I don't think closer is mainstream. Not at all i mean. I guess it's in the beaten the hooks but but i feel like all of like our hot topic brethren were just like sitting up straight or a little bit when that came out you know like oh my god. Is this up pop station you. I like pop music. Do i need to go get the soundtrack holy fuck. I think you do actually lost highway. Why are you still need a new pair of underpants. Oh you definitely do. Yeah especially ever watched that music video The music video they made for. It was very gothic. Based on the illustrations of edward gordon telling a tale of a man grieving the loss of a son which does not as sexy but it was pretty glossy with a high budget. I think it's kinda funny that they base it on. Edward gorey because edward gorey has lake this underlying like super. Dry kind of horror Sense of humor to it. That i don't really get with that video but i get where they got inspiration from edward gorey look like gory but they didn't want to be. It was like it was like edward. Gorey through the dracula vector. We're gonna take gory. But we're going to turn them into dracula xactly and then we're going to turn them into drag you. That's all rob zombie. There's been rob zombie and that with like the green absence bet. Yeah oh oh. God don't buy manson and nobody wants nobody asked for marilyn manson absence. Nobody that man money no. I'm morbidly curious to see how it tastes. Yeah i mean if somebody buys it wants to have taste test it it will. It's probably gonna burn my asaf again. It just be burning. Liquorice a licorice want it to burn my safa. Guess yeah yeah no and look. Here's the thing i get like. Trance done a lot of soundtrack work. I mean even before the two thousand right he also had a song natural born killers Like i mentioned earlier grow Hit another senator to Was him but like like. I think lost highway was the place. He really got to get his feet wet. Yeah he was like he wasn't just doing the soundtrack he was also doing the score. Yeah not the total score but did like select. Yes and i believe he's the reason marilyn manson got on lost highway santrac. I don't know if he's the reason. Bowie ended up on the soundtrack. But you know like you just see all these tiny these tie-ins exactly so i. I have a feeling that. Trent probably helped pull the strings on some of that. Probably but david lynch so. He's pulling all the strings. Yeah actually they're all david lynch's strings. He's weird man. i love him though. I like twin peaks august guys. Sorry but yeah so. I think lost highway was him being like all right. Maybe i like making music things For other people essentially Little little little nuggets hence for next episode. Oh all right so now. it's nine hundred. Ninety seven and nine inch nails hasn't released melman three years and dude addiction anxiety and writer's block. A new album hasn't even really been started at this point. Oh no ooh knows at one point. Trent made an attempt to get clean and went to rehab. It didn't fully stick and once again us end up using eventually But nothing would prepare him though for the death of his grandmother the one who cared for him as a child no no after that he finally realized he should start to try to seek some counselling at least. Yeah but like. Here's the thing he's trying but like it's not an overnight thing guys like now it's gonna take him a few years and it's gonna take some. It's kind of like some big shitty experiences to really get him to. It's kind of like. I'm going to get healthy and i'm going to lose weight and you like chicken and vegetables for dinner one time but then like the next night you went to taco bell for breakfast. I ate chicken and veggies for did how come. I haven't lost like ten pounds. I feel seen you that literally every night. So taco breakfast is the only good thing they have left right honestly. They've taken everything else away from us they can at all. It's twenty twenty. Take everything for me and you take it all the way. Twenty twenty puddle a month. I mean honestly it would become plane for trend to see the downward spiral was a self fulfilling prophecy. Yeah he couldn't shake his addictions. He was miserable and he felt lost. Making a new record. Was the scariest and most daunting task. One that he wasn't sure he was up for but he went to task anyway in his studio in new orleans with a new lineup of band members and a new producer until they were about to embark on the unknown. He just was like new orleans. Sounds like a good idea. That's where he went after he Sold the house. Okay yeah so he went to. He was reading. Actually between la and new orleans and he went from the most haunted house in america to one of the most haunted cities in america. I mean come on. Man got to keep that scoop up spooky time. Trent reser is soup. He's like a liza minnelli. Musical transmitter is swooped ladies. He headlines his hair. Yeah he did he did they will. These efforts proved to be fruitful when you are going to have to tune in next week to find out. I think we're gonna be disappointed.

BK welcomes George Stoia III

"Will be no deaths by inches. This is the broncos daily. Putt jazzed with brandon krisztal. I want everything. I want all the meatballs and pasta. Happy tuesday broncos country. It's always a happy time when good things are happening. And i guess technically vp tuesday around these parts known nicole yokich for the denver broncos but he has played for the denver nuggets or so. There's plenty of crossover folks in the mile high city or denver through and through or love both teams and love watching joker play. I was going to get this podcast up little earlier. I talked to george sawyer shortly after we had media availability today with lloyd cushenberry and josie jewel and bring you a little bit from that as well as some stuff from yesterday with vic fangio alexander johnson and dalton reisner but i talk about joker and people that are critical like nick right out there of jokers. Mvp season. it's it's really a credit to that dude. How hard he worked. And i encourage everybody. Check out mike. Singers article in the denver post about who joker is and people that know him best describing how you approach his life how he approaches bask while high approaches everything that was in the sunday denver post Really great piece talking to his brothers and his old age in and coaches in europe and family and friends it was it was really awesome As well as folks with the nuggets have known them for a long time and saw how special he was going to be. I need to give special shallow paul. Who's of course a friend of the pod and certainly somebody comes on here. Plenty paul klee told me years ago after talking with folks with the nuggets and talking with tim conley team president of basketball operations that this could be an all star and i was looking at them in practice. One day i was like that guy is going to be an all star barely place but okay and he's overweight and just looks kinda goofy. I was wrong. I guess. I didn't say no. He'll never be an all-star skeptical and not only the an all star he is now the best player in basketball so props to nicoli yokich He joins a list that includes both john elway and peyton manning as far as mvp's in their respective sports here from the mile high city. And of course. Larry walker one and allen vp. Back in one thousand nine hundred seven. Joe sack again. Peter forsberg both won the hart trophy. A one for joe super joe when they won their second stanley cup and then a couple of years later. Peter forsberg won the hart trophy four. Nhl mvp So a pretty rare list. That joker joins and we'll see if the broncos are going to have an mvp again anytime soon If they were to land aaron rodgers you would think that probably gives them the best candidate with apologies. That drew lock and teddy bridgewater. And melvin gordon. Anyone else you think they might win. Mvp we haven't seen a defensive mvp and a while either. So von miller bradley chubb justin. Simmons will be my top candidates over there. I'm not sure those guys are are winning. Mvp anytime either sister. If fangio said that he liked what he saw from both quarterbacks we saw him both row interceptions than he also mentioned. That drew lock may be dealing a little bit of a blister on his hand. So does that factor into why he's throwing interceptions and their first day of teamwork yesterday and they're gonna get four days this week. Not as and then three days next week a mandatory minicamp to watch all three days of that when we got to watch one day this week. I missed last week's work. Because i was on vacation camping in the week before that i had a meeting. I couldn't move so it was one of those things where you can over-analyse and victim just said you absolutely shouldn't or you can just say it's practice. It's june interceptions. Happened just seems got one on one. The ball slipped out of drew's hand and me greets nash out of the air. Teddy bridgewater threw wanda rookie. Jimmy johnson and so. I'm not pressing the panic button yet. They're practicing by the way that means you're defenses taking the ball away something down. Tell him vic fangio stress and you wanna see that. From time to time but became joe was asked because alexander johnson don rising over the two guys we were talking to you but alexander johnson specifically about what can the team's leading tackler from a year ago due to improve his game this year and then alexander reacted to it. So this is kind of a fun little sequence here but here's vicks at about what number forty five can do to improve his game. We'll look for him to be more of a assignment and technique conscious and fundamental player. He's at times Can get stray a little bit. From the exact way coaches are being Telling them what to do fits in that other category. You don't want the guys then only at the coach. You're saying you don't want the guys that don't do the coach saying he's leaning towards the too much of the other right now in his career and we've got to give him more dialed in when he does find. He'll even be a lot better. And then here's alexander responded to the notion that he's not assignment sound and then you'll hear my follow up question. I didn't ask the first question but asked a follow up So you'll hear all of that. Alexander not necessarily agreeing with his coach about being assignment. Sound off inappro- tate me already a few months. He may be sitting. There must meet last year but those just hang with inside playing the game with me instead of just my job. China ilbo fall into gabby see a gap opening Stadium to where states much in of Out but for us last week's wise is something that i want to improve on his ours just saying earlier are got over tall. Say this marriage let me slide out to outside. Wish to make the run a background inside off make them go outside on different formations coach. Alexander back to the assignment conversation. How hard is that for you to remember. I gotta stay home. Or i gotta do this versus instinct of just wanting to like help out or go down and try and make a play. You struggle with that aren't far is las. Might know him. The siamese more so is more being more disciplined instead of jumping into this guy. Because you see the open instead of just seen him. I get as more slovenia's this point got this one way to pass through the knicks oneself as our being sounded this. Then here's fellow inside. Linebacker josie jewel about alexander johnson. Being more assignment sound in this vic fangio defense. Yeah i mean it's not it's not like the easiest defense ever by any means. It's it's pretty complex. Which is great because it gives us law do different things and you know maybe the first year he had a couple a couple signs and stuff like that. But you tell definitely in this year. He's morris island driven. He's understanding of the defense are standing. Roll out now. Since thing on the other side of the ball dalton rising talk yesterday and while i appreciate it the exchange. I had with them talking about leadership. The thing that i thought was most interesting was at the very end. He was asked. When you have two quarterbacks and we know how close he is through they came in. They were drafted. And back to back picks. They were roommates when they first got here at the team hotel and an early in their rookie seasons before they got the replaces of course Training camp ended but reisner was asked. If you're going to go sit in the lunchroom and have lunch with one of them. How do you decide who you're sitting with. And i thought he gave a pretty good answer. It's the same way across the whole locker room right because there's competition going on everywhere. Whether the since the quarterback the main position now might be highlighted. One everyone's talking abou there's competition everywhere man. My thing is like we're all trying to be the best team possible. So i never picked size and not going to hang out with one more than the other respect. Both trying to get to know both try to support both for every position across the. That's he not only just quarterback so you know when it comes to launch. Yeah man. I see what you're one day. I don't know eddie as well. So i'm trying to get to know him interesting ever since i got yourself. It's always great as a team mates. Make sure that you're extending yourself your to your teammates. Making sure he gets to know them in their life and dislikes and get to know you guys know each other better on the field. So i'm always trying to do that with every position every competition across Competition lloyd cushenberry started every game and played every only offensive player to do that last year as a rookie and he had a rough gobert at times. There's no question about that. But he is the incumbent. It will be his job to lose when miners. A fellow third rounder. Who's taken at the end of this year's third round is battling competing in loyd was asked. How did you react to quin minors being drafted and do you see it. As true competition just based on holiday last year and i really think much of consciousness. Federal nope we're gonna push push each already. He's got off the field. Is it easier. We're gonna make each other better. Made no stuff so this luggage. Yeah like i said we work together in individual drills. We made it. So he's the guy he's gonna have up to now so you're gone through what i wanted to last year having experienced now kind of t simpson baynes so so bit i guys from you so titian and today we have more conscious. We haven't seen only everybody better. So i really didn't like neat looking forward to the challenge. Making making him better when miners was drafted. Ben albright said that he thinks clinton is gonna take somebody's job good that'd be like cushenberry's we'll see how it plays out. Well he get a shot to compete at last coming a lot of money dalton reisner starts at left guard so not sure minors alba a shot to to take one of those jobs this year. But you'd never know and cushenberry as the incumbent does he. He keep his job. Will we'll find out. But let's talk to george stoa from the gazette a young writer from the university of oklahoma and i had the pleasure of having lunch yesterday after the workout. Joyce story the third is twitter is at george stoyan. Colorado springs and denver at george s. t. o. a. I really like this young man. He's a heck of a writer and is going to do a good job covering your team. So if you haven't started following george yet. And he's closed in on eight thousand dollars and go ahead and give them a follow but We covered everything. Going on with the broncos From early in the off season two right now with the competition evening. Out a little aaron rodgers. Talk talking at the. Check out my chat here with george. Soya on the broncos daily podcast. Georgie wrapped up your first season covering the team and before we get to wear the team is right now. I guess i wanna hit the rewind button a little bit. Let's say quarterback off the table for the sake of conversation. How do you think new. Gm george peyton did in addressing team needs through free agency and the draft if you were going to give them an early grade just as a gm again taking quarterback out of the out of the equation. We'll take him quarterback out of it. I think he's done You know probably an a minus job. I would say be plus somewhere in that range. I mean Know after the season it was clear that defensive back corner was a position that they had to go get You know maybe even more more so than than even quarterback And exactly what they did. They went out and got fool. Or they got darby Obviously they brought back. Just in simmons And they went and got thirteen. Which obviously we're not talking about quarterback that was the best player available there at number nine and a guy that i truly think is going to be a future. All pro type corner. I mean when we go out there and we watch otas the dude. The dude looks the part And he looks like you know your your typical nfl. starting cornerback. That can make pro bowls in any any so big and he's got speed and and obviously his career at alabama speaks for itself but He's a guy that i think is going to be a great player but again You know that's a position that you know they. They took care of really in free agency in my opinion in signing dr being fuller. Obviously bringing callahan back. Oj moody's back You ask who. Actually i'm i'm hoping to talk to This week and maybe write a story on. His recovery obviously was playing great before he got injured So that got a lot of depth there so it kind of makes you scratch your head of of. Why did they go after ser tan. But it goes. You know along with everything george. Patton has said he was going to drop the best player available to them. That was patrick ser tan. Well in some vic fangio always says you can't have enough corners. We saw that last year. Right when they're getting on the nine ten guys your your fellow sooner cornell motley came in one of those guys at added late but they were literally trying to steal guys off practice squads or grab guys off the street just to be able to have enough corner to get them through a given weaker through the end of the season because of those injuries to guys like essang bassey like you mentioned and then look kyle fuller who's been an all pro and maybe an all pro again this year's on a one year deal bryce callahan. Who hasn't finished season in any of the last three years is in the final year of his deal so looking at it for twenty twenty. You're like all they have too many corners but by twenty twenty one. Sorry by twenty twenty two the the they could be just starting darby and obviously ser tan and bassey and no judy are battling for third spot right well and that's why i think i think that was the thought process. There's is what's the term I think one thing that we we keep forgetting to talk about which peyton i think it'd be. It wasn't a six year deal that he signed. I mean he. He's stinking long long-term here. And i think that's the same reason why he didn't go with a quarterback because he didn't feel a hundred percent confident with either mack jones or justin fields. There at number nine. And you never know. Maybe aaron rodgers does come available. But i think that He's thinking big picture here. And i think that's why he ended up really sure enough that corner room because let's be honest the odds of koffler and bryce callahan. Being back in twenty twenty two. I think are very slammed up that both of them are back. Maybe one of them is Maybe they resign and come back. But i think it's very low that both those guys for back in two thousand twenty two and that leaves you like you said with darby certain ojemudia and bassey and obviously they're gonna add another young guy in the draft or maybe there's a free agent but yeah that's at least what you have gone going on paper before we get to the quarterbacks and certainly will get there you know. We talked to lloyd cushenberry today. And while i don't know if he's in the same competition that drew lock is in necessarily. There's definitely competition there of the that competition. What are some other ones that you even keeping an eye on or i'm working through to my head is kind of the one. I guess right tackle right. Will it be bobby massie. We'll be fleming. We'll be somebody else will be anderson. What else do you keep an eye on. And what intrigues you. The most on offense you have to look at right tackle. And i think that that that's a position that it's bobby massey's to lose I think bobby is probably the best right. Tackle option that they have right there. But cameron fumbling fleming obviously comes in with a lot of experience just like massey and then you have kelvin. Anderson who seems like the coaches are really high on And obviously played a little bit last season as a younger guy. Feels like they're trying to groom him into being that right. Tackle some day And so that position is is really interesting to me because obviously they had a lot of issues there last year they've got to on james was going to be the guy this year And obviously it didn't work out. And so i'm really intrigued by what's going to happen there and you know it's also interesting. That massey hasn't really been. Ota's earliest practicing. I know he's got a tech strain going on or something like that is what fangio said yesterday But it's interesting to see who's gonna be playing that right tackle position because i think that this offensive line can be really good if they can if they can sure that up and then on defense. I think it's a linebacker position. And i know we talked to josie. Joel today Andrew johnson yesterday. And maybe people aren't thinking that's a battle there but i think once barren browning if he can healthy which he's another guy that hasn't really been practicing in ota's With with a knee issue You know he's a guy that i really think. By the end of the next by the end of next season could be starting there At inside linebacker so That's a position that. I think that you look at that defense. We keep talking about how great they can be good. The secondary is You know von miller coming back up front and and maleek coming on bradley chubb. How good that pass rush can be but really the weak spot in that defense is linebacker. And it's gonna be interesting to see josie jewel now. Alexander johnson can keep both. They're starting jobs. Because i think barrett browning can be right on their heels to take that position. Yeah the sense. I get is if browning's taking anyone's job it might be alexandra johnson's even though he led the team and you know about his his physical tools. One of the big keys vic fangio's defense is is being in the right place at the right time and making sure that everything set and yes. You've got plenty of guys on the back end. Who can help fix issues. But sometimes they can't get all the way up to the to the defensive front to be able to tweak things or move guys around the way you need your linebackers two. And that's why. I think they realized josie jewel. And i think he. He maybe even exceeded expectations last year. Getting the start. All those games with todd davis obviously being being released at the camp. So it feels like josie jewel may be around here a little longer until they can replace him with someone who's really smart and really fast. I guess really athletic. And the other one that i think you have to watch out for I know that they talked a little bit about him today. Josie did and and he's a guy that obviously You know it sounds like he was playing quite a bit Before he got into of course. When i came in covering the team he was already injured in. I didn't get to see him play any but it seems like the coaches and players are high on him and so maybe he's a guy that come in and compete for one of those positions. Yeah he had he had a good campy seem to always be around the ball. He's not blazing fast. Vix had guys had patrick willis. he had roquan smith. I want to say roquan. Rookie year from my math is right and so when you have guys like that you know the two linebackers especially with how fast devon white is tampa but labonte. David can run really well to just not isn't that but he's always around the ball and i remember talking to folks with the team when they when they got him last year draft weekend they really liked his ability to find the football and that he plays faster than maybe he runs whereas some guys you know they'll say oh he doesn't play as fast as he is it kinda the opposite. So maybe he. He's the one that's pushing. Josie duelfer for josie spot. Whether that's at the start of the year middle of the year or by next year. But it makes you think that. Maybe they're not going to draft linebackers in the early rounds. If they believe in in somebody like that plus plus browning when you look at the running back situation. We haven't seen melvin gordon but a quarterback's best friend. I'll do quarterbacks but of quebec's best friend is is the run game that shaking out 'cause just to let you know i think it'll be a seventy thirty split with melvin at least seventy percent of the work to start. Yeah i think to start the season. That's right but i think what we're going to seize adding devante going to be a study I thought that was a great pick. I know some people didn't like it. They had to move up and give up a fourth round. Pick to to get him there in the third round but You know. I think she's going to be a guy that again. Maybe by the end of the season kinda like learn browning. He's their guy at run back And i i definitely think he's their guy. Twenty twenty two. I think gordon probably won't be back And i think towards the end of next season you're gonna start seeing williams get more carries and so he's just a guy that i think that can do a lotta different things. And obviously gordon's a good running back in in What is he in his his sixth year. I think or seventh year in in the nfl and was rushing for almost a thousand yards last season. So he's coming off a really good year you'd like to see him at Ota's and out there and see him next to guy devante williams but I think they're gonna have a really good backfield in the end you even you know. They added mike boone who I know hasn't played a ton but when he did play for the vikings pretty. You know pretty good. And he's a guy that can can can contribute to this group so I think that they're running. Back room is pretty solid. But i do think that people are going to be wanting to see more of devante williams by the end of next season. Yeah i'm kind of right there with you. Even though melvin gordon said he wants to sign a new deal here and i get that and and who doesn't want that and and understands that this is a running back off can be it does feel like they drafted his replacement. And they'll free up that money to us to somewhere else right. So we've waited long enough. Let's get to the quarterbacks and yes. Aaron rodgers is officially not at packers minicamp and could cost them almost one hundred grand if they decide to levy that fine and make him pay offer. Take it out of future money. That is owed to them or whatever it may be. But let's put aaron rodgers on the side for a second talk about two quarterbacks at our here we found out drew. lock maybe dealing with the blister. But he didn't look great yesterday. And i know of only gotten we only got to see him. I missed the first to open being practices. But you've seen them all three of those and teddy bridgewater as well. What are your impressions is. Both guys did throw picks yesterday as well well. You're you're all in on lock you think locks can be a starter right. I do because i get the sense talking to people in the building that they have a lot invested in them. And there's there's people high enough up that believe in him that want to see him when the job and and like his talent. But that doesn't mean that that's going to ultimately went out and so we'll see it's kind of a committee but it will ultimately be vicks call. I think with georgia's blessing so drew is going to have to prove that he can do the job better than teddy bridgewater even with the higher ceiling so because the ball comes out different from their hands you see it especially when they're throwing side by side but i'm not i'm not coming off that position yet and we didn't make enough about it yesterday. But if he does a blister on his end we see that baseball pitchers down for weeks at a time. Football football players are a little different breed especially this time of year. But you're not missing a game for a blister if your quarterback you just aren't so maybe it's a little bit of an excuse. Because i think dry looked good that first week compared to bridgewater should should be had. So yeah. that's where. I stand on team lock as it relates to who's going to be the starter week. One in new york against the giants all things being equal no injuries or anything like that to to change it up. If everybody's out the. I think we'll see drew. Lock one two or three. But i think one we'll see drew lock right and i'm gonna preface what i'm about to say with. We have only seen them three times in. It's mostly been in seven on seven. And i think they've had what ten practices now so we've only got to see him like thirty percent of these. Ot is so far in my opinion. Bridgewater has been the better quarterback. I think that he's Looking downfield more He's obviously gotten in a rhythm with jerry jeudy main their chemistry Looks amazing so far through three practices. i mean he's he mean bridgewater's looking for him every time is hit him. On a couple of touchdown passes Of thirty plus yards But you can tell. Drew has the better arm. And i don't think anybody questioned that coming into this but it's very weird. Drew can do a little bit more with his arm. He throws it a little bit harder as jerry. Jeudy obviously said in his quote that went you know sorta viral You know he he can throw it a little bit further but bridgewater's very accurate. You know. I wrote a story. You know last week that he had the fifth highest completion Completion percentage in the league last season. Now that's not to say that. He's just a phenomenal quarterback because he also threw eleven interceptions and was checking down. A didn't really throw the ball down the field but he does look like he's being more aggressive and he's he's i think more aggressive than lock In in these. Ota safari locks done a lot of stuff. That's been short passes you know. He's only thrown a coupla passes. Maybe more than fifteen yards down the field And he just bridgewater. Looks a lot more comfortable at this point. And i don't know if that's locked may be pressing I don't think he's really been a true quarterback competition maybe since high school. i know missouri. He kinda got thrown into the fire as a freshman the starter Golic arrested or kicked off the team or something like that And so you know. Maybe he's uncomfortable going through a quarterback competition but it's very clear. Bridgewater is the veteran Because he looks much more comfortable in this situation which is kinda surprising considering lock is obviously been here a little bit longer more familiar. Maybe with pat shurmur. Even though i guess bridgewater did have shurmur there for a season in minnesota but You know i. I would say right now. If if they had to play a game next week i didn't bridgewater's the starter but again it june. And there's a lot of time in lock Can make up for that and again. We've only soon three practices. Who knows drew lock could be tearing it up on the days that we're not there. Maybe he just doesn't like playing in front of a crowd of of media folks up there on the hill but You know i think right now. Bridgewater looks like he's gonna be the starter if they had to do it next week and and again i think it's gonna come down to fangio's going to pick the guy who's going to turn the ball over last and both those guys had that problem last season but i would probably maybe give that advantage to bridgewater right now. What's interesting is you know. As you point out that teddy's taking jobs downfield and druze is keeping everything short. It almost feels like that's how they have to impress. A coach is right right. Pat shurmur famously. Last year referred drew. With the with the i think he called forty are check down or sixty are check down and bridgewater. We know point out then he certainly will complete plenty underneath but the knock on hymns always going to be like. Hey are you gonna take chances. Are you going to stretch field and so to win the job. He has to show that he can do that. A little more and is willing to do it and for drew. it's okay. Quit taking the shots down field. Yes they might be there. We know you've got a big arm. Just take the play. That's there and move the sticks. And so i don't know which style if they're if they're both committed to that and you know i'm just gonna talk through that right now with you but if they're both committed to doing the opposite of what their tendencies have been. What will impress the coaches more. That teddy's taken the shots or the drew is and just taking what's underneath and movin moving methodically down the field. I teddy I again and i. I believe in drew lock. I have been adamant that. I think drew lock can be a good quarterback I think maybe part of the reason he struggled so far is just You know. I think the scheme doesn't fit him. Well sometimes i think he struggled with understanding last year. I think that we're gonna see a jump from him this year really understanding shurmur has offense but i just think that bridgewater's experience is gonna trump Locks potential talent. And i think with fangio it just lines up with angie going into what is a really do or die season for him in terms of being the head coach with the broncos. He's gonna pick the safer bet. And i think that's gonna be bridgewater. And i just i don't know i think that to your point. I think they want see. Water takes Insofar he's hit them. That's the thing that we've seen is in the three practices. He's taking shots any any hit number. I think the only time i've seen him. Not you know. Make the throw or Mistake was was yesterday when he threw the intersection and a double coverage to jimmy. Johnson is really the the receiver kind of lead up there but still it was. It was a bad decision But you know. I think that That's what i would lean towards an. They're going to need that. I mean i. I truly believe if they're going to win games to be a little bit aggressive. They can't just take the underneath stuff all the time. And it's good to see drew do that. But you still. You're still have some of that. Same swagger confidence that he had an himself Last season in the year prior. Because that's what is going to eventually make him a good quarterback in my opinion. Yeah and i. It was funny. Hearing the clips. For melvin gordon on that. Podcast say that he told drew the one thing he needs his confidence and to fake it till you make it because whenever anybody asked me about drew lock especially coming off the foreign one start to his career. I would always reference his confidence in the in his swag years teammates talk about. That's one thing the the kid doesn't seem to be lacking right. And i go back to his high school days. Kansas city's pretty big town and you grew up not too far from there and i have spent a lot of time there you. You're the best football and basketball player in in kansas city right and basically in those two states like kansas and missouri. And i know he's on the missouri side. You're going to walk into muslims. Would like you know what i am. The right so and it seemed like confidence was shoot. Seemed like consistency is the issue. But while i don't want to agree with you. I think if teddy bridgewater i'm not saying i don't agree with you. I just want to be wrong on on drew. If teddy bridgewater i. It seems more uncharacteristic based on the sample size right we've seen teddy bridgewater in the league for a bunch of years. Not take chances so if he shows throughout the entire training camp and in those have any preseason games he plays of the three that he's really gonna take shots with jerry jeudy and courtland sutton and really stretched a field and you know last year. He had guys and dj. In robby anderson. He could go vertical with and you just didn't And he was there. He is an offense really bad in late game situations but i think if he can coach is that they know he can do the underneath stuff that that that is probably the thing. They're least worried about right. That he'll throw it for four yards and make make sure second and six or whatever so bright. Maybe maybe you're right. Maybe he does show yeah. I'm willing to take a chance right. Found a win this job. I've got courtland sutton. I've got jerry jeudy. I'm gonna. I've got no fan and maybe our oh soon enough i am going to stretch a field and caja hamler right one. I think that again the chemistry. He's building with judy. Who i personally think. Judy is the best player or i guess. Maybe not yet because he. He had a rough Rookie season at times with his drops. But i think he has the highest ceiling of anybody on this team. I mean i think he is a future superstar in the in the nfl in that chemistry. That bridgewater's bill of him. I think that the coaches are going to take that into consideration when they're when they're picking who is going to start because if if bridgewater's just hitting judy all the time and we've seen it in practice mean eastern them for big chunks down the field against a a pretty darn good secondary You know. I think that they're going to take that into consideration when they're considering who's gonna be the quarterback drew You know. I think he has a you know connection with judy but You know we haven't really seen it much not as but you also have to put in put into perspective reminiscing sutton out there either And you know. I'm interested to see what he brings it. What kind of chemistry that. These guys have with him because i think he can also be obviously a great player if he if he can come back like you know his former self before he tore his acl so There's just so much still left to be done not as in training camp and even preseason games that it sounds like they're going to carry this all the way you know. I wouldn't be shocked if they carry this all the way through the last. Preseason game this this quarterback battle so they're still so much unseen in and you can't really tell any seven on sevens and really eleven eleven periods. I mean both sides know each other really well. I'm not saying they know exactly what's coming But they have a good sense of of the plays and in. What's going on it. So i really wanna see them. You know that week up at minnesota when they have the joint practices Will be really interesting and obviously three preseason games You know it'll be interesting to see how both these guys react. And how fangio splits splits up those snaps. The fifty fifty thing. How does that play out. And he said not to track it. But it'll it'll even out right. It may look like one guy's getting more in two days but over the next few days the other guy will get so all right ultimately year. If i'm putting you down now or we're going to draft kings to to bet on it you're betting on teddy bridgewater being the starter. September twelfth in new york. Yeah but i'm not betting on him. Being the started the season. I feel like i've said that. Like three or four times. This this podcast is that there's like three or four positions that it's not going to be the guy by the season It depends on how it goes. But yeah i if you had to you know ask me today. I think it's going to be teddy bridgewater at the start of the season. Alright well it'll be fun to play out in real time in front of us. If aaron rodgers isn't here i guess i'll give you. I'll give you one last. I don't say shot but opportunity to talk about aaron rodgers who doesn't show up in green bay and through this out on on draftkings madden streamed. I was doing night a little bit. I guess it twice yesterday If i'm tennessee. I'm i'm also calling about aaron rodgers right. If you know that the packers are going to send him to an afc team and we think the raiders might get in the mix too and there's probably a bunch of teams at least make some sort of call. Why wouldn't you if you're the titans you just added. Julio jones yahweh jay brown send them tannehill. Send them all your ones and say yeah. We'll take aaron rodgers down here in nashville right. Well here's the thing. That i keep saying about aaron rodgers and i think i do think that You know the broncos are up there as his probably his top choice. I do believe that. But i think the longer this goes on though that list of teams that he may be has is gonna get longer and at the end of the day. The packers have to do what's best for their organization. Not just what's best for aaron rodgers. And i think that they will take in consideration. What his you know his list is obviously he has. He's going to have some say in this But i think that that list for him is going to get longer. And i think the should be on that list You look at the titans raiders and broncos. I mean which team if. You're a quarterback. Would you wanna go to i. I would probably say the titans out of those three. But out of the broncos and raiders. I think i'd rather be on the broncos And so it's interesting To see it. Play out. But i do think that list is gonna get bigger. Somebody mentioned to me the other day. What about miami. Would he be interested in going down there to south beach and That's an interesting one. I don't know if miami. I mean i can get any everybody. Maybe like two or three teams should be interested in aaron rodgers Truthfully but i think miami's one of them that could be interested in. Somebody said the giants the other day would be interesting You know. I think there's gonna be a lot of calls and i think the longer this goes on In the longer that he does not want to be a green bay packer. He's gonna say just get me out of here and eventually he's gonna land somewhere. That may be. We weren't expecting well. It is going to be fun and fascinating to watch. What happens with aaron rodgers and certainly what happens here in broncos country georgia. I hope that folks are starting to know. You had a great piece on kelly. Klein That that i retweeted. I know ben. Albright retweeted the the new executive with the broncos. You got to talk to a bunch of folks that knew her from her family members coaches and it was really good side. urge people to go Read that and read all the stuff that you're putting out so thanks so much for the time and i'll see out at the practice field here soon. Awesome thanks for having me brandon.

Do not hike to the Dildo sign. Also do not punch Olympic horses. Do go to the robot cafe in Tokyo.

"An olympic coach is thrown out of the olympics for punching a horse. A robot cafe has opened in tokyo to eliminate loneliness and people are urging visitors to. Please stay away from the dildo sign. These are the weird stories for monday on weird af news. I'm your host josie. Thank you for joining me. Weird af news is the only daily weird news podcast hosted by a comedian. I have three weird stories from all over. Let's go a german. Pentathlon coach was thrown out of the tokyo game olympics for punching a horse. I don't know what the horse said but it was obviously inappropriate possibly racist. Let's find out what happened with this racist horse. No horses aren't racist guys horses. Embrace all races get it races and races because their horses. Okay bad jokes. Sorry moving along a german modern pentathlon coach not to be confused with the german old school. Ancient pentathlon coach. We want to let you know. It's a german modern. Pentathlon coaches yes. I'm very modern coach. Yes don't confuse me with the old greek games. This is very modern olympics. I am coach of the german. Coach was thrown out of the tokyo olympics for punching a horse during a competition. I assume the coach wasn't riding the horse. The coaches on the sidelines and the horse wasn't performing up to par and then entered the competition the field and punch the horse or maybe the horse was punched at halftime. For not doing what it's supposed to do. I need more information. There's no video of this. Perhaps thankfully kim reisner was trying to assist german annika shillue as she battled to control saint. Boy that's cool horse named saint boy. I love horse names man. They have the best if you've ever been to a horse race track or dog race. Strategist i don't even know anything about horse racing or dog racing. I just pick based on the names. I'm like ooh mariah carey's cleavage putting three bucks on that So saint boy couldn't control can be controlled. It says During the show jumping round in the women's event. So you punch the horse that's reasonable. That's the reason. I maybe what looks look. I don't know anything about training. Horses jumping over shit. Maybe that's how you do it. The horse ain't jumping you punch it Athletes are given only twenty minutes to bond with an unfamiliar horse. Before they're round and sh- lou who had been leading the field was in tears as she came into the ring. Twenty minutes to bond with an unfamiliar horse. Does this mean they're not. They can't bring their own horses to the events they just give them a that. Could be dicey if you're given a horse that just i don't know you don't know where this has been. You want to bring your own horse to the olympics. I'd imagine gold is on the line. Silver is on the line admittedly bronzes also on the line. But that doesn't really count you win a bronze you don't tell anybody saint boy. Which is the name of the horse who had already proven a tricky ride for his first athlete bucked and refused to trot around the course with a number of people on social media raising concerns about way sh lou and raising number retreating. The horse. well this horse was bucking and refusing to trot. So the horse should have been just removed from the competition. Initially if that's the case Or at least at the very least after the first athlete couldn't control the horse should be removed. I mean you've got unlimited horses right. You're the olympics. You are the olympic committee. You're given unlimited resources. I'd imagine did you. How many condoms. They had one hundred sixty thousand. You mean to tell me. They don't have an extra horse. Of course they do they could have given slough advise not shallow and wiesner. Am i saying that correctly. In german the world governing body for modern pentathlon which is also known as the u. Ipm can can't believe that exists acknowledged. These concerns ahead of the men's have been on saturday and then issued a statement revealing righteousness. Vise nece punishment. The statement reads the you. Ipm executive board has given a black card to the germany team. Coach kim vise na disqualifying her from the remainder of the tokyo twenty twenty olympic games. Here's a quote the reviewed video footage that showed miss visner appearing to strike the horse saint boy ridden by anna cashew with a fist with a big closed fists structure. A horse with a fist during riding discipline of the women's modern modern pentathlon competitions not to be confused with ancient. Greece pentathlon competition. This is modern pentathlon competition so the decision was made in the it says before the resumption of the men's modern pentathlon competition. So you're not supposed to be punching animals anywhere that people can see you. This is the problem. You can't really do that. You can't be on video punching animals. I know sometimes you want to punch an animal. Sometimes you gotta punch an animal to control it for the safety of everybody like. Let's say you're working at a local carnival and there's little donkey rides for the kids and the donkeys are bucking and kicking kids around and you have to punch that donkey but you can't get caught on video punching the donkey okay. You'll lose your job. And when you're working at one of those local carnivals you need that job all right. It's very important because you need dental care you really do. Have you seen those people. That worked those carnivals. They need supreme dental care so they need to keep their job. So if you're going to punch let me let me listen joan z. Nor weird af news condones punching animals. Let's just be straight here. We're trying to get laughs guys. Trying to get laughs. You shouldn't be punching horses. I'm just saying if you're gonna punch a horse. Don't get caught on camera doing it. A robot cafe opened up in tokyo and its aim is to eliminate loneliness because when you lonely you need a companion. And what's better than a human companion. A robot companion. That's how you in loneliness tokyo. A cafe where robots serve customers has opened in june people with severe disabilities who have difficulty leaving. Their homes are going to be able to remotely control avatar. Robots that will deliver drinks and chat with the customers remotely while the customers are at this cafe. Okay so you see what's going on here. You go to a cafe. Your served by robots these robots are controlled. Not by people in the cafe. People remotely controlling it right bringing you drinks chatting with you through the avatar robot. They're disabled and they're elsewhere. Who knows where they are. There's somewhere else in japan. Maybe they're in a whole other country. I don't know what are the possibilities here. They seem endless. When you got remote controlled robots. I wanna control robot from afar. I make that robot. bring your crazy drink. Oh you order tea. Well here you go irish coffee coming right up. Say some crazy shit's in them. I would be entertaining these customers through my avatar robot. Now how did this come about well. It was a young robotics researcher who decided to make it his life's mission to eliminate loneliness through his experiences of social withdrawal. He put his cherished idea into practice. And now we have the avatar robot cafe. This is amazing. It opened june twenty-first and the nihonbashi district in the capital it's raised funds for its operation through crowdfunding. The project was planned by tarot yasha fuji age. Thirty three a robot researcher and co founding. Ceo of ori- laboratories inc. If that's important for you to know the cafe has seventy seats over about a one hundred and seventy square meter. Space serves various kinds of coffees. Even food serves lunch serves breakfast. It's a wheelchair accessible including the stretcher. Type of wheelchairs as well and it will be fully barrier-free with the power supply for charging medical equipment such as ventilators available for rent. Wait a minute. i'm confused too. I thought it was regular. People at the cafe. In the robots are being controlled by disabled people from afar who were trying to have a social life by interacting with anybody who came into the cafe. Now it sounds like the disabled people are also at the cafe. So do we have disabled people at the cafe. Interacting with robots that are controlled by disabled people. That aren't at the cafe. Gotta get some more information. Let's cut through this literature. The power supply for charging metal medical equipment. Ventilators are available for rent. So i guess if you've got a covert situation you could just be in this cafe to going to be on a ventilator for covert. Why be in a hospital just being the cafe being served by robots. Yes that would like. Several scones served by a robot. That sounds like a great way to spend my afternoon on a ventilator to be honest with you says here one of the special features of the facility is the one hundred and twenty centimeter tall or a hyme d. Which is a mobile robot that guides the cafes serves customers and directs the entire floor. Oh it sounds like the the cafe manager or behind. D is not an automatic robot based on artificial intelligence but rather each robot has its own operator. This is the reason why they are called avatar. The person who operates the robot is called the pilot okay. Where are these pilots at the cafe. The pilots are people with severe physical disabilities from all over the country who suffer from intractable diseases such as ls and spinal muscular atrophy and they have limited mobility they control the robot remotely from their homes or hospitals in addition and a ls patient. Who used to be a barista will operate a custom-made tele barista by inputting data into the computer to make a cup of coffee. According to the customers taste okay so it sounds like we have disabled people in the cafe receiving delicious drinks that were made by disabled people. That aren't in the cafe controlling avatar robots. Wow i can't wrap my head around this. We can't cure nut allergy. That i have but we can make robots controlled by disabled people that are delivering drinks to other disabled. People on ventilators can't cure my nut allergy but we're on top of this guy's unbelievable what we're using technology for. Can i get some relief from acid reflux. Can we just can we do something. We got. Robots being controlled by people elsewhere. Bringing you drinks it's avatar control robot. Barista can i can. I have a night without acid reflux please. Can we do something. What are we doing with this technology guys. We got self driving cars. But i can't enjoy new tele as this how it's going to be. I have to live with this unbelievable. I don't mean to make it about myself guys but man they got a pill for restless leg syndrome for crying out loud. We do something about the nut. Allergy got to epi pentagon stabbed myself in the ass when they eat enough. This is the best you got. You got robots be controlled by disabled people serving drinks made by a robot avatar barista being controlled by someone with ls. Who used to be a barista. I mean i can't believe it miracles here. Maybe i just need to go to japan. I really would love to go to a cafe like this. We gotta get guys. Let's all just meet in tokyo. Where all the weird shit is like. The weirdest stuff is there. Can we meet there. I don't think they're allowing tourism right now but when it opens up guys. Let's do it. We're going to go to the robot cafe. We're going to go to the poop museum.

I'd imagine people aren't just taking selfies with the dildo at imagine that they want to sit on the dildo. Sign be like looking. I'm on amman giant. Dildo these kinds of jokes. This is what you're going to get. The dildo sign apparently went up two years ago. I was unaware of it. It was part of a bit on american comic. Jimmy kimmel talk. Show guys familiar with this. I guess it's a pretty good show. I don't really watch it. He seems funny. Enough seems nice. A jolly old soul like santa with dimple skycell temples when he smiles a cutie. It says here in the facebook post. The town outlines two main reasons why people should not try to hike to the dildo sign. Que get your notebook ready those of you. Who are planning on hike into the dildo. Those of you. Who wanted to touch the dildo. The dildo sign the first has to do with safety. Of course they say. The sign is located on a rocky cliff where hiking is too dangerous. You stupid to put a dildo sign on a rocky cliff. You're just asking for trouble man. You're you're just causing a situation where people are gonna fall to their death trying to reach the dildo. You can't do these things. Man you gotta know like. Try and envision a future if you just can have self-awareness. Try to think a couple of steps in advance. Guys just please. I know it's difficult. it really is. It's really difficult to use reason. I know it's hard it really is. It's hard to think about others. it really is. I know i know guys. i know. it's hard but but if you screw up something like this people are going to die so please. Just try man try. Would you dildo sign people. Try move it back away from a rocky cliff. how about that. Oh no worries. The dildo sign is right. Next to an erupting volcano. No nothing to see here. Okay also it says the other reason to not hike to the sign is that it's on private property and no matter way people try to approach. It will be trespassing. I wanna know who owns the dildo san. Why don't you just build a safe fence around it and have someone there and just charge. Admission to the dildo somewhat. You make a little money. Give people what they want. Everybody's happy who's not going to pay five bucks to go get a photo with a dildo. San man people are going to do it. we serve. i don't know you give them make up a little a little dildo cocktail and you give him a drink while they're there. Yeah enjoy a dildo. Cocktail touch the sign. Take a photo with the signed. Don't climb on top of the dodo era. Hits not that of sex toy guys but please enjoy the dildo enjoy it.

October 1 Hour 2 Football Friday! | Broncos / Ravens! | CU, UNC! | Game Picks!

"The football friday Jared my god keep improving. Here's a pray for friday. Let's get it rock and filling rate about some of the games. This week is a big one tonight. Talking about mountain west conference utah state and byu. That is my game. I'm looking forward to that. One to start the weekend i love. I love when he just throw in a really hot friday night. Football game to last friday night ended up being pretty good to fresno state. Unlv dot that was going to be a blow out. Although i did pick unlv to cover not on the air but it's later nobody knew about it So that was fun. This is the big weekend for denver. They got through that first portion of their schedule. You know we set it all off season we set into the preseason looking at that schedule the giants the jags and the jets and we said the pressure is on vic fangio. He asked to win these games. He was completely defeated in all of september in his first two seasons with denver so that was a there was pressure there plus going up against projected bad teams plus the fact that you looked at the rest of the schedule after the fact with baltimore pittsburgh vegas cleveland now. Washington dallas. i mean. Suddenly those games don't look like gimmes at this stage washington's defense is pretty darn good so that was important so the first test the first challenge so to speak for the broncos was to beat those three teams and they did it now. They're going up against this baltimore ravens team. That's two and one on the season. They're just trying to get it right. They're trying to figure it out. I mean they. They had that crazy game last week or probably shouldn't have won. Found a way to get down in the field and get set up for that sixty six yard kick by justin tucker and they were very close to beat the ravens on that first game says ravens teams good. I hear people When when you're picking the broncos and and again there could be some realistic reasons why you would pick the broncos to win this game at home. Obviously being number one. But i did like my questions are my fears are windy. You stop saying next man up for denver. Now next man up worked against the giants the jags and the jets. Because those aren't very good teams. You can beat them. Probably not at your best but the injuries are really adding up and You know what's the status at least at this point with with graham glass. Cowan and dalton. Reisner there's a lot of question marks surrounding this team as far as the injuries. Go and yeah. You should definitely be concerned when you look forward to. It are when you're when you're going forward to this game then you here this morning. That melvin gordon is listed as questionable. Graham glass still listed as questionable dalton reisner listed as questionable. Obviously bradley chubb is out. Obviously jerry judy. Caja hamblur josie jewel. Those are all pretty darby. Those are all big names and you start to wonder. Okay windows windows that start rearing its ugly head at the broncos and and i always floors me at this when you have not just one big injury because i do think teams can weather. You know like you look at christian mccaffrey with the panthers. That's a big injury but can they weather the storm. Maybe but when you start adding two three four five six pieces both on the offence couple on the offensive side. A couple of defensive side. It always drives me a little batty. When i hear people say you know what that'll be fine next man up they've got to get it from this guy and maybe that can work with one or two guys. But you're asking that's a lot of next man's up you know that offensive line give glass and reisner both out. That offensive line is really shaky chubb alma leak read. You're asking a lot of yeah i get. The patrick shirt and at the quarterback position has been fantastic But then that falls down when you're in your dime right. That's when you start to see it's like you with the nuggets sometimes when you see starter go down. You don't feel it as much the starting lineup. Because you know you like your sixth seventh eighth man coming in you start to feel it when the benches on there because now you got your knife. Tenth man in for the broncos. That's kind of that similar spot in when they're in the three four in the nickel situation. You might not feel it as much. But it's going to be when they're in that dime because the idea when they were in the diamonds like man you've got the best collective for cornerback in the game but with darby being out. You know it's kyle fuller patrick's for tan and it's bryce callahan and the nickel who's in the diamond. That's you know. what is that look like. Mike ford carry vincent. Those are. it's just you can't just go all right. Well they'll be fine next man up. Well justin stern ed. You really excited see him. Take the next step in the middle. Linebacker spar inside right inside linebacker right next to alexander johnson. But then who's coming in for him. Mike a kaiser barron browning those are the next guy's up from that side so again melik read while you get jonathan cooper coming in trying to make a name for himself. It's not always just the next man in the starting lineup. It starts to show up on the the backup side to and so. That's where if you're looking at this game this weekend. You're foolish not to at least consider all the injuries that the broncos have already had in this young season but that aside obviously we know that's gonna be a big one teddy bridgewater lot of pressure on him this weekend three games. It's clear that he has shown he's the guy he was the right man for this job. Going forward whatever you feel about drew locks future has a bronco or as a quarterback you one these three games and i had someone ask the question. What were their record. Be withdrew lock at this stage. You know what could very well see it being three and through locked but neither here nor there. This team is built on defense. And i thought they'd be better at the run game at this stage with with gordon and Davonte williams run the ball more. And they're not bad they're not bad. Just not a top top ten rushing attack right now and i thought i thought that would be just a little bit better but yeah you you go to the side of it and you're you're definitely. This is the test for teddy going forward. There's gonna be more certainly in front of them in front of him. I should say but this team definitely has to find a way to get the run game going in my mind so you can make life a little bit easier for teddy. You know. I go back to that very first game for denver against the giants right. And that was the touchdown pass. He had to albert oakwood non roles right. You gotta defensive lineman in your face ted. He's able to kind of keep stepping back and back and back and the coverage breaks down albert. Oh teddy uses a kind of a stiff arm to push that linemen away and still completes that pass. I look at that point. I said that's a great play by teddy. That was a really atrocious. Defensive set though like the alignment what are you doing. You know you keep trying to chase him down and you're giving them that space to roll outright and then whoever's guarded albert sees that the past completely broken down yet they just they overcommit albert alberta catches. It rolls right around him. A bad sequence there. I look at that and say will that work against baltimore. Now it's not like baltimore. It's not like they're world beaters. It comes to defense there a middle of the road defense for the most part. They're eight eighth against the run but really really really bad against the pass. I think their thirtieth right now. They're twenty fourth overall. So they're trying to improve and again i don't get too crazy about defensive stats and standings and everything are off both the offense and defense five or six weeks in. That's when you start see okay. Did they just have a couple of bad. Instances that did just give up. Like if you're a good rushing attack rushing defense team but you just fall asleep one play. Melvin gordon runs out runs for seventy yards suddenly on the stats sheet. It looks awful but you know that. Hey you've been break. You've been actually stopping a team for the run. You just fell asleep on one place. So there's a lot of those little things that can be deceptive at times. The ravens trying to prove that they're actually a good defense. Patrick patrick queens. A solid linebacker. Seventeen tackles one sack so far they got derek wolfe back in the mix. He's listed as questionable callejas campbell. Obviously he's a monster So defensively they've got a lot to prove on the offensive side of the ball though. That's where they get their work done. Lamar jackson's numbers are just crazy. Even losing running backs like they have losing. Jk dobbins i mean at the start of the season. they've been able to overcome that tyson. Williams has one hundred sixty four yards and a touchdown. They added latavius. Murray early on. And we'll see if he's going to get more more carries as as we go here. But the name of the game for the baltimore. Ravens is lamar jackson. Fifty-three of eighty seven. He's at sixty point. One percent completion percentage seven hundred. Sixty one yards passing. He throwing three touchdowns two three interceptions and he has an eighty six passer rating couple. Fumbles in there too. He's ran for two hundred and fifty one yards and two touchdowns i mean he makes this team go and i'm amazed so far that they keep keep this offense really rolling in you know you keep waiting you know. He's been the league. What does this his fourth year people th that knock his game say well. This isn't sustainable. He's not going to be able to run like running by well built like a running back. He's built differently than than a lot of these quarter. I look for lawrence last night watching that game. He's gotta be the slider in the game. I said it for several reasons. He's very smart about it he. He doesn't take any chances which isn't bad. I'm not knocking his toughness. He's a pretty skinny dude. he gets hit a lot. He's going to get hurt. And then your team's gonna be in trouble so it's not a selfish thing. He just such a good slider. He's got it perfect it and he knows exactly when to go where he's maybe not going to get hurt. Lamar's built differently than him. He's built differently than joe borough. He's built differently than baker mayfield. He's like a wide receiver running back running around with the football. That can throw just the way he looks. He doesn't look quite like a typical quarterback. So i mean yeah those. This isn't sustainable a so far. So good you're at a spot where he continues. I believe to prove people wrong. And that's why the ravens have a shot each and every week in this one so it's gonna be yes offense for baltimore. Their number one in rushing one hundred eighty five yards per game. Obviously you go. With lamar jackson. Getting that chunk. But they're number four in yards per game. They're right in the middle of the road in the pass so again three weeks. in how. how much do you want to put stock into those numbers. You you kind of want to be careful because again denver. Look at their numbers. They are a tremendous defense. Right now you know. I said this team was gonna be a top five defense. Three weeks in are sitting at number two behind the carolina panthers. They allow two hundred look at the panthers. Though defenseman they allow one hundred ninety one yards per game. That's it for the broncos. They allow two hundred and twenty one yards per game. They're number three in passing yards per game and number two in rushing yards per game allowing fifty nine so they are living up to those expectations. I look for them to slow down with the ravens. The ravens are necessarily a world beater. But this is a completely different opponent than denver has seen in those first three weeks. We're gonna take a short break I got picked coming up. We got more on broncos ravens and want your thoughts on this one Noobs says drew lock association. They would have been five zero after three games. I agree with that that works out. See us at home this weekend. Unc's on the road against montana state and she was off. We're gonna talk a little college football locally coming up next. It's football friday on the whole show powered by energy. It's northern colorado's voice one or three point one and thirteen ten. Kfi sports from the coach. Tuning to clark in the coach. Weekdays at eleven a northern colorado's voice. One zero three point one in thirteen ten kfi k. Join clark johnson and bruce dick ver- cargonoff coach weekdays at eleven. Another in colorado's voice one zero three point one and thirteen ten kfi k. Steve fairchild fairchild qb training dot com and you are listening to the whole show on thirteen ten. Kfi koa love. And what. I do at rev chiropractic man. They've been helping me out so much over the past seven eight nine months. I started going there in january. And i'm not looking back. I go there once a week. Now i kinda. I ramped it up the first few months to really get my back in and a good spot 'cause my spine was just so off. Kilter there helping me shift that bad boy back. It's a slower process. But that's a good thing you know when you get cracked and all that. It's nice relief for the moment. But we're not really working on the problem at rev chiropractic. They're working on the problem. Dr tyler perry dr haley harada check them out. I mean they're. They're located right off of highway thirty and thirty fifth avenue right by home depot. And you know they. They've changed a lot of things for me. Go to chiropractic rev dot com. I event is text. Line is eight eight eight five three zero zero zero four. Three eight hundred eight five. Three zero zero zero four three. You're new to the show. Texts that number the colorado buffaloes hosting usc this weekend this is crazy. One teams given up twenty seven points and three hundred ninety one yards per game. Usc and the others averaging thirteen point eight points and two hundred thirty nine yards per game which seems higher compared to what we've seen the last two weeks for c. You love this. One team gave up forty four forty five points last week scored so you got a bad defense and a really bad offense. So which one of them's gonna show up this weekend between usc and and colorado buffs feeling the pressure. You know man you go to two weeks ago. Three weeks ago they do get out with texas am and you think. Wow what's happening here the buffs. Are you know a couple of minutes away from pulling off an upset against a team. That was what top seven at the time. And then we then they lose okay and then texts saying really doesn't move. I think they moved out. Move up or down one spot shooting you will. College football respects the buffs. They don't think that that was a bad near loss for texas then after that you go up against minnesota and he gets shout thirty nothing. There's no offense their record low for the colorado buffaloes brennan lewis is not looking good then you fast forward to the next week and it got a little better but not much can say you not much but there must be something on andre carter. Were there really were coach. Karl dorrell really must not trust him going in at this stage so the offensive struggles have just been so bad. So you scored more than one touchdown in a game just wants. That was the opening win over. Unc which they struggled against you and see for the most part fourteen. It was fourteen. Nothing right at half time. Is that right The run game has been pretty good. They just cannot pass. They've only passed one hundred yard mark once and that was one hundred two yards against the bears. They barely through it. But then you have the trojans on that side of it and they gave up forty two points in week. Two to stanford oregon state just absolutely throttled their defense and scored forty five points in that loss last week. So see us defenses. Good can they keep them in the game. I think they turn it around. I think the offense turns it around a little bit give you my picks by think they get better but they have. The defense has to carry them so see. Usc big one coming up this week. Meanwhile the unc bears going to montana state. This weekend montana states good. They have a really good defense but more importantly this team can run the ball. They're the number one team in the big sky conference at running the football. Eight hundred eight hundred twenty nine yards so far with five touchdowns they average about two hundred seven yards per game only idaho in the conference averages in the to hundreds so this team will put the ball in their running backs hands. And they're just going to go to town. They're going to go to town. And that's the thing you look at you and see though their defense on so it's kinda like we have the opposite's going up against each other on the rushing side states number one Defensively you know. Unc's in that you know they're they're they're better against the pass. I think number one or number. Two in against the past the rush. Yeah teams are running against the bears but maybe the bears let them run. That big real teams are going to run a heck of a lot more against them because they just know. They can't air it out against northern colorado lot of attempts against this team. But you make no mistake about it. That's where montana state's gonna look to try to make their money this weekend. That's how they're gonna try to beat this bears team. You know you look at Isaiah fans disguise ran for five hundred two yards there. Their quarterback can run to matthew mckay. He has nine hundred five passing yards but also one hundred fifty three rushing yards as well so to solid offense doing some pretty big things here and they you know they were picked. I think the beginning of the season to finish in the top five top four right now. The standings have them at number four with the bears at number five one conference game in on fair to really go too crazy there but Tell you what if the bears could pull off this upset. They're gonna move up those change up the up. The ranks and you would be very shocked at beating northern arizona and montana state both teams picked to finish well above the bears. In fact everybody was picked to finish above the bears on the coaches poll. The mediaeval has the bears had the bears. Second second to last so. Unc's coming into this one with a two and to record a lot of optimism surrounding the bears. They have the pretty much top defense at this stage. I think number two in the conference so you you think that this group can go up to montana. State pull off a major upset. You that crazy. It's not that far fetched that you can go do something. Overall and shock shock. Montana state and pull off this w we'll get two picks later twenty nine minutes after the hour before we break. Do to thank one of our sponsors. And that's mosier funeral and cremation service. Their numbers nine seven three three sixty eight. Two thousand four moser funeral cremation service. The only family owned and operated funeral home in greeley the greeley evans area. So let the moser family help you through such a very difficult. Such a very tough time the toughest of times they. Their motto is live. Well do your thing but plan ahead. Give scott robin remember member of their great staff a call today. Talk to them about pre-planning their website is mosier. Funeral service dot com. Mos er funeral service dot com right thirty minutes after the hour. More broncos ravens. Talk the other thing. We're not talking a lot about teddy bridgewater talking a lot about what. This defense is. All about the pressure is definitely on the wide receiver core and not just the receive receiving core. In general noah. Fam- where are you on a consistent basis. Let's talk about the next first. Let's get the latest on the local sports flash. The good afternoon guy with brian gary weekday afternoons at three southern colorado's voice one three point one and thirteen ten. Kfi k. i. This is terry fry author journalist screenwriter. And you're listening to brady hall on the whole show thirteen. Kf gay thirty five minutes. After the hour bama bear says big game for the bears. Tomorrow i think the offense clicks and makes a statement in big sky playboy. Then it really start talking about this team. They start to know in the big sky. He likes the bears to win. Twenty eight to twenty four get your picks in buffs between the buffs game. The bears game the broncos game. No no see issue game. I'm sitting at eight and six right now on. My local picks filling all right about that. We need a big week though. We won't start pulling away from that five hundred mark a little bit more. My national picks a foof hikes. I pick one. Nfl game every week and one college game. Every week said a one. Seven one in seven copes thursday night specials. One three. maybe. I'll just stick to local gotta do something man. I gotta fix it. You're in the broncos. This week i am even with even with lamar. There doesn't scare me. Yeah with lamar go. If he was out which is good to go. It looks like i would've easily and give you fish easily. Take the broncos because they they will go the way. The mark jackson goes. Do you think that that defense is better than some of what we've seen some of what their numbers have shown for baltimore overall. But it's gonna be a battle crowd's going to be going nuts. Man drian oh love and love and teddy bridgewater. You're loving this team's about right now. That crowd will absolutely going crazy though. Baltimore to contend with that. I say that there's when i look at this. You know as far as guys. I'm just shocked haven't really stepped up yet. Just threw three games and again not everybody can can be a a monster out there and you were at the beginning of the season. You had a lot of weapons. We've been dwindling every single week. But i mean you look at the rushing stats so far for for denver. You got melvin gordon. With about two hundred yards. You just need a little bit more. He's averaging sixty four yards per game. Giovanni williams being the rookies averaging forty six yards per game. So they're not bad but again you want a guy that can can get a guy could be more of a bell cow. They're they're splitting carries right down the middle man elvin gordon at forty two devante williams at thirty nine. So one of those guys. You'd like to see take off and again part of our power play. Sports poll question is who's more of a priority for the broncos to think about resigning long-term belva gourds are getting any of the votes. Tell you what he breaks off a couple of monster games against teams like baltimore pittsburgh. Maybe you're having a different discussion. That's power play. Sports poll question. Who's the biggest priority for the broncos when it comes to a long term contract von miller. Cortlandt tim patrick Bridgewater or melvin gordon. Von miller winning the votes. I think cortlandt sutton to me right now. Edges him out guy that i need to step up. Step up though. There's no fan yes twelve perceptions for one hundred ten yards. He does have a touchdown. But i i get the sense. Sometimes at albert is just as likely to get receptions from from teddy throwing to him. So i know a fan was the guy drafted in the first round. A couple of seasons go. You passed on some really talented players and you moved trade back and moved back to the twentieth spot and got no offense. That was the same year you got dealt reisner and andrew lock so that that draft actually kinda worked out but you need you need to play like a first rounder. So i wanna see more from him. i do. Think the receiving core not just wide receivers but the titans in general there. 'cause you know you had to go find somebody had to bring somebody in and it was a nice pick to go get dave more sure. But you're counting on portland sudden. You're counting on tim. Patrick sutton sitting at fifteen receptions for two hundred ten yards no touchdowns yet for sutton tim patrick. Meanwhile with twelve receptions one hundred seventy four yards and two touchdowns on this young season. I think those guys will have to be pretty important early on in this one against the baltimore. Like i said more of a middle of the road type team then on the defensive side of the ball. It's all looking great but the big questions you have is like how much do you. When do you really start feeling those injuries. You didn't feel against crap. Tastic teams like the jets. But you do. You will feel that depth or lack thereof against better football teams like the baltimore ravens first advantage text line eight five three zero zero zero four. Three give me your predictions. Give me your thoughts on some of the locals. Noobs got his picks in usc thirty one. Cu seventeen ouch unc. Twenty-one montana state twenty hey go he's throwing air force in there throw an air force in there. It's not part of the big. It's not part of the big three this week new. They're out of our listening range. Air force new mexico forty one. Twenty-one i'll i'll give you the i'll i'll read it for you denver thirty one baltimore seventeen where you're going with the score kkob's you think is going to be a tight one. It might be like twenty one to seventeen kind of rock defensive battle. Yeah i could definitely see a slow cut of defensive defensive minded type game for sure Picks eight eight five. Three zero zero zero four three stereo. I think the broncos and bears both lose this weekend. Montana states pretty good there are three and one. Their only loss was to to wyoming. And the question. I have there is how good is wyoming. Therefore no but they played the worst teams. And i'm not saying montana. We're seeing but certainly as far as classification you go. Fbi cfcs my wyoming. Only beat them by three. But i'm very skeptical about the cowboys. As i think they're off this weekend but as they approach mountain west conference play but i could see montana state being a very difficult battle for the bears. They have to get their offense going. You know because a lot of a lot as discussed about dylan mccaffrey. Which dylan's good and we you know it's this. I really saw that against the. Cu game. i love. He could chip away. He really does a good job of going through his progressions. You're waiting for those big chunk plays though for the bears. Were that offense. Looks like it's coming easy to them. And i don't know that it does this weekend necessarily Because i think montana states defense is pretty salty for savannahs text. Line eight five. Three zero zero zero four three. Let me know what your thoughts are on the boston. Usc this weekend. The bears montana state and the broncos taking on the baltimore ravens. Do you start getting to the point. Where if and new good good call. If you're listening on tune in app you can listen to about you. Listen to you talk about airforce all over the country. It's true he got me there. We'll take a should we start talking more air force. No it's not that. I don't like air force like talking air force. You know. i love talking about running the football. Nobody does it better than air force. We just don't have a lot of. I don't think a lot of air force fans that listen to the show on a daily basis. Maybe i'm wrong. I've had people complain about our lack of wyoming cowboys coverage to zia seriously. We're but we're not doing colorado. Chris is new hitting the pipe. Broncos twenty-seven ravens twenty-one close to what new has not that far away brady what's with noobs he must be hitting the pipe again. Lockwood have been four renault. Then these first three games all right you think. The broncos be undefeated with your lock. I don't think so he probably would have had more turnovers at the stage right. I would imagine maybe bigger numbers passing but teddy has been pretty flawless man. Nope picks four touchdowns twenty seven yards. His completion percentage. I think lamar accidents is pretty is getting up there. Sixty percent sixty point one teddy's completing seventy six percent seventy seven. Almost we won't around up seventy seven percent of his passes you gotta think that's slows down but boy if that doesn't you're signing this two five year deal and he's your franchise quarterback suddenly in his ninth year. He becomes a franchise quarterback for the broncos like talk about a second chance and the broncos will have proved to do it again via free agency in a very roundabout way. They've they've got there so i. This is such a fun moment for him whether you were team drew. Lock or team. Teddy bridgewater your team broncos and now going forward you're looking at this guy saying all right teddy. Do it again do it again. Start the season four now can really take the pressure office team going forward. You beat you baltimore on sunday you. You suddenly have a an nfl nation. Following suddenly saint are the broncos for real 'cause baltimore however you want to say they're not kansas city. They're not buffalo Buffalo. see but they're right there. They're one of the teams that you said could win a super bowl this year. They're one of them. You may not have picked them but they were contender. And there's still a contender but you find a way to upset baltimore boy now. We're talking forty six minutes after the hour right enough messing around. We'll get to my picks coming up here in just a moment. Local picks right around the corner. You don't wanna miss this. I'm eight and six eight six respectable. I need to be better. I've gotta be better than that. So we'll see how we do on the other side. It's the whole show powered by energy football. Friday continues picks coming up next voice and your home for the denver.

Defense though it's tough when i'm going back and forth with this when all week couple of guys. We've been talking to brian howell mark johnson's and maybe this offense can get it going. Maybe they find a way they gotta go on a little bit last week. do they. Keep that up. I like the buffs win taking the buffs over. Us scene no colorado state rams this weekend they are off due to the bye week will get back at it next week next saturday for their homecoming game against san jose state. So we don't have to worry about that. Pick broncos ravens. Colefax loves the broncos escape. I you like the broncos in this game is close. The broncos are now one point dogs. Something has changed over the last couple of days. Lamar jackson is playing. This has been very tough one for me now. I originally picked when. I mean we did our way too early. Picks that don't make any sense that you can't you shouldn't hold everybody. The fire for those are crazy predictions. I did pick the broncos to lose to baltimore. Pretty sure right. Three and want him started on season three and one. I have had a difficult task in picking this one. I got the ravens winning. I got the ravens winning this game this weekend. I i you know when i saw the thing about lamar i thought okay. There we go there. Broncos are gonna make it easy on me this weekend. But i'm going with the baltimore ravens to win. And the broncos undefeated streak ends. I hope i'm wrong on this one. I don't hope. I'm wrong alive. But when i pick our local teams to lose i definitely hope i'm wrong so there you go. I like the broncos to lose to the ravens. I like see you to beat. usc. I like unc. To beat montana state. There you go mysterious as i think defense will win the broncos ravens game. Who's is better. I think the broncos defense is better. I just think lavar jackson. Maybe puts a little bit of a dent in that this weekend. What do you think. I posted them up. Check them out. let me know. Those are the picks that's going to do it for us. Have a wonderful friday. We got the good afternoon guy with brian. Gary coming up this afternoon. We've got high school.

May 19 Hour 1 Reasons to NOT Give Up on Drew Lock | Mark Johnson Voice of the Buffs

"Her local radio show national radio show television show sports related talks about why aaron rodgers would be a good fit for denver and vice versa with denver being a contender pro football focus came out with some interesting story about drew. Lock about how. Maybe the idea of giving up on drew lock is is is a bit premature that perhaps the broncos could have a josh allen type guy there. Well josh allen you know. Maybe the expectations weren't skyrocketing because he was a mountain west player but he didn't live up his first year he didn't live up to and again last year. Was the same. Josh allens rookie year for drew lock. Last year was drew locks real first year. Denver broncos dot com shared the story pro football. Focus making the case for drew. Lock to take the leap in twenty twenty one and i sense it with colefax. I think i think deep down you are really wanting drew. Lock to work out. Even even over aaron rodgers. I just sense it am my wrong possibly i just. I was a i tag before last season. Yeah i think. I predicted like ten win season. Yeah and then. I was horribly letdown. Well and that was the that was the weakest point. I mean when you look at denver's roster pro football focus loves denver's roster giving them like a top five you know defensively. They love it It's hard to argue now. the courtland sutton back. You got a lot of great wide receivers. I love the offensive line. All the more reason you don't trade dolan reisner. I think the office of line is. I'm not gonna say the office of lights great but it's it's good now. It was very bad for very long. It was a very similar to the bullpen for the rockies. Elway would throw money at it. You'd get guys that were proven and it just didn't work out now. They're they've kind of went the other route and they're going young guys which is maybe with the should be doing going with guys that they've grown garrett bowles they draft adult reisner. They drafted cushenberry. They drafted so three guys on that offensive line. S- three starters. I should say are their homegrown guy. So i love the offensive line. Here's what sam monson wrote in pro football focus quote. Here's quote from him. We don't need to go back very far in time to find a quarterback who has written off as never going to achieve great things josh allen based on his. Nfl play at the time. Monson wrote allen's simply had to go and while there may always be a section of die hard fans who will forever defend him. It looked like alan was destined to never reach the level. He did so we're all. Are we all missing. Similar signs with drew. Lock on the question is then. What are those signs. Here's what he says. This is stuff that's beyond us. What lock does have working in his favor. Though is a high big time throw rate of six point. Four percent last season. That figure ranked seventh in the league. Behind five star quarterbacks and derek carr. It's a higher figure that allen manage five point eight percent and shows that for all his inaccuracy lock has real upside. Big time throws are pro. Football focuses highest graded passes. Generally they are deeper down the field into extremely tight windows or a combination of both and they are just a nice thing to see and a quarterback they materially matter to an offense well everything. He's talking about their colfax was kind of the problem. Drew lock felt the same way. As mr munson did. I can go deep. I'm good at it. Problem is it didn't translate to his first full year in the. Nfl teams knew that that was going to happen. How many first downs with the broncos. I would love to see that stat. How many first downs with the broncos have had would have had last season if he would have checked down i mean. How many times did you see. Noah fant dragging across the middle. Were a tight end dragon across the middle or the comeback route was opened. Instead locks gonna go with the deep throw he's gonna go with the homerun various doing baseball references today. Colfax because we're not gonna talk a lot of rockies today trevor story rookie year first year home run. All he did was swing for the fences became a complete player once he settled down. It wasn't going for the home run every time the question is how do you fix it. I think drew lock has the tools mentally. I don't know that he does. What did he do so badly last year. Yes we he missed out on his check downs. What did he do that was obvious to even the most green football fans. He rolled to the right every time which is not only your weak spot on that line last year. But you didn't give it a of chance to develop. You didn't give your offensive line who we just said much improved a chance to develop so i agree with what monson saying here i do. But that's a real big fix. There is big upside though. And there's something there and again. I don't know their roger story we've got about what eleven days until until the that makes sense financially for the packers to trade aaron rodgers but i feel like there's something there what if i always talked about with drew lock this year. This offseason man he survived. He survived the first wave of free agency and trades. You know george peyton. We know he made calls to matt stafford. We know about matt stafford. Which i don't fault anybody for making calls even if you know everybody. But maybe like the chiefs guys that have their franchise quarterback at a young age a couple of different teams to short bills would be in the ravens would go on but it he made. The caller was too rich. If they really thought matt stafford was going to translate into instant success then they probably would've pulled the trigger same with this ridiculous deal on the table for aaron rodgers. I see so many people throwing out where you guys getting these deals. You're finagling it. It's going to cost you three first round. Stop pretending it's going to be three first round and somebody asked me yesterday. Brady is this make you feel better to first rounders a third round or third rounder and bradley chubb sure it looks better than the three first rounders bradley chubb dalton riser drew lock second rounder. But we're where we coming up with this. Are we talking to the green bay every day. Oh you know what we would take that no. It's gonna cost you at least three first round picks and it's gonna cost you a great player on your roster which comes down to about three guys so i. I think there's something here where drew lock just continues to survive. You didn't get it too aggressive in free agency you waited you wanna teddy bridgewater but not at that price. Which means you didn't really want him. Anybody that complained about the teddy bridgewater thing doesn't understand much of anything about football about the business of football they're going to be paying for it carolina's gonna be paying for it. Most of that contract three million dollars to denver. Is that even anything. No they gave. Chris harris three million dollars two years ago just to just to play and not sit out. Three million dollars is nothing. I go back. I tell you what colfax i have never gone back and forth on a story on a player perhaps in doing in doing. I mean i've usually. I go one way or the other and i have been convinced. Have i changed my tone a few guys shore. But i i go back and forth going back this morning just watching good moments from drew lock and i see it. I can see his potential see. What's there but how do you get mentally. How do you fix this mentally. That's the big question. First advantage text line nine seven four seven eight thirteen a one nine seven four seven eight thirteen zero one if you're new text or texts. Kpfk to that number. I thought it was interesting. I just thought it was worth talking about. We've a busy show today. We're gonna talk to mark john. We've able to catch up with mark. Johnson in quite some time. We're talking about the state of the pack. Twelve pack twelve goal on a different route. George cleeve cough. I think my saying that right. He's not a big sports guy. A few days ago it was announced that the pac twelve was going to hire clear cough as its new commissioner. And nobody knew him. Nobody knew who this guy was. As far as the sports world stanford's football coach. David shaw was like i've never heard the name before. That's not a negative thing. I did the old old social media and google stalking just to see what we're dealing with now. Of course. Larry larry scott. We know how bad the pac twelve has been forever. They announced that his time with the pack twelve would end in june. It was this was a secretive thing. Cliff cough was this was serving as the president of entertainment and sports for mgm resorts international since two thousand eighteen. His appointment is a gamble. In the sense that clear coughs background is not rooted in college. Sports according to one pack twelve writer. It's is a gamble. I'm curious as to is this one of those far. Fetched things where it's like. Nothing's working. How do you fix the football with the guy that doesn't you know. At least in his background doesn't know a lot of football. He may no football humane. He may watch football just as much as the next guy. But i guess you gotta know the business of football but how do you make the pac twelve better. The the caliber of play. The tv deals all of that I i don't know he when he was asked. How do you fix the football on the field. He said i'm putting on my reading glasses. Because i wrote down a few notes because there's a lot to talk about here. He went on to talk about you. Know hey we're going to get some tv deals we're gonna we're gonna that's going to increase the interest from other players. They got a financial boost through meteorite. Steel coming up in the next few years but they need better caliber play and the reason this is important. Obviously with see you and mark johnson. We'll talk to him in more detail. Fax and i are going to are going to pick every nba game every night. Pretty much from here on out and we are one one. You should've went with your gut yesterday. I know you would close. You'd be too and you know what we missed by the way what. We missed the roof. How did that go by the wayside again. That's great all right. We got to get a plan for that somehow. Seventeen minutes after the hour. Colfax and i have quest playoffs again tonight. More playing games. Washington was atrocious last night yet. They're still in the mix so we'll talk about all that more coming up. It's the whole show powered by pd. Energy were live from the articles and specialist studios. Don't go anywhere we'll be right back. You're listening to the hall's show powered by pw energy and thirteen ten kfi k. Brady will be back after the break. It's a party in northern colorado's voice thirteen ten k. f. k. a. the block party wednesdays from four ten pm medved demand basketball coach of the colorado state. Rams you're listening to the hall show on thirteen ten. Kfi k a a after the hour. Welcome back to the whole show powered by pdc energy. Maybe we'll do drew lock poll question tomorrow. Something involved arou- around this monson article from pro football focus. We'll get to that but today's power play. Sports poll question is based i kind of stemmed from yesterday. What are your expectations of the nuggets in the playoffs. Let's look at the results. Yesterday it was two days ago it was. Hey do you consider failed season if they lose in the first round and most of you agreed. Yes which is why. Only twelve percent of you actually twelve percent of. You're saying they got to at least get past the first round. That's the smallest amount today. So what are your expectations. Get past the first round advanced to the western conference. Finals advanced to the finals or win the whole thing. Fifty percent say they've got to advance to the western conference finals. I think that's where most of us kind of were the other day. I mean we had like. I said hey. I expect the championship every year. I mean i think they can but my expectations aren't there for that and then people will come back and say well then win is it. What are we doing here. This is what it is guys. I mean how many championships of the nuggets warrant zilch i. It's hard to win an nba title. Not very many teams have done it. I mean over the years. It's like y- stretches of these champions a you get these dynasties. I mean think about the seventies and the eighties teams. That were just dominated the nba for so long not a lot of teams get shot so yes. I do think that the nuggets are capable of it and i. I'm tired of not being in that conversation but the nba is with the nba is look at this goal facts. I mean last year was lakers the three years before that. They're well toronto toronto. Somehow they had the leonard weird year talk about a weird championship. If you're toronto. Hey remember that year that we were okay and then quiet. Leonard came for one year got traded and we went wanna title and then he got the hell out of toronto as fast as he possibly could but okay so toronto's kind of weird one off golden state you know. They won the two before that. Then cleveland with lebron golden state. Again the spurs the heat with lebron the heat with lebron. The mavericks squeezed in there got one. Then it was the lakers for two more. Boston was thrown in that. Mix spurs lot of spurs the heat. The pistons the bulls rockets. The just look at this. There's always like a couple of years in a row where it's the same teams right. I mean you go back. Let's go back back in the day man since the nba started the minneapolis lakers. They won three in a row in the fifties in the fifties and sixties the sixties. I should say. Boston went on and run. Let one like seven in a row. Sixers got one in there then. It was more boston boston. The knicks one. Milwaukee one one but you see what i mean like you see a bunch of random teams thrown in that mix once in awhile but for the most part you're looking at the same groups and there's the boston's again In the seventies it was the lakers. The lakers off and on. And then you throw in a couple of a couple more celtics championships in there than it was in the eighties and nineties. It was the lakers the pistons and the bulls. The rockets got a couple in the mid nineties. Then back to the bulls as we all know. The story was chicago with michael jordan. Taking two years off while those were two years the polls didn't win the title Spurs got their first and ninety nine. At what i'm trying to say is like this is the nba. It is different. It's not the nfl. Your expectations for the nuggets might be to win the championship this year. I think they can but do you expect them to get through the blazers. The lakers the jazz. The nets i mean. That is a tough road. It's a tough battle especially without jamal. Murray if jamal murray thrown in this thing. I think you add a little bit. I don't think that's the maker break because we all know jamal. Murray he has. he has moments of greatness. He has moments of average if he brought those moments of greatness which i imagine he would to the playoffs right. Think we see bubble. Murray murray loves the the cameras and the lights and which is not a bad thing. It's a lot of players in the nba. That are just pretty good in the regular season and then they take off in the playoffs. First advantage text line nine seven four seven eight. Thirteen o one. What are your expectations for the denver nuggets in these playoffs. And i think i agree with most of the whole against today. Fifty five percent of you. You've got gotta make it back to the western conference finals digits. That's that's the way it's gotta go. Twenty two percent say advanced to the nba finals. Eleven percent of the hooligans out there expect the nuggets to win their first nba championship. If all that happens though right okay. So i'm seeing all the ballots. Come out by the way it's all joker jokers gonna win the mvp. But then you already got steve kerr talking about like yeah. The challenges of this really weird season and data. They're already like setting it up to. This was the weird year you know. This was the strange strange year overall. They're already trying. And i just feel it. You can feel it with a lot of these guys now. Nick rights of the world. Coming out saying you know. Hey this is the most forgettable. Mvp the worst mvp and thirty five years crisper sard came out yesterday saying that he thought joker was better than steve. Nash was better than dirk a couple of different guys on that list. That he he said. I think he's he's better than so. Does like that argument. That stupid argument anyway but this he's gonna win it so then if you go around and you make it to the championship. The nuggets have never made it to the nba finals. By the way does my argument finally take hold of gypsy. Joker already being the greatest nugget of all time. Yeah win the mvp. Nobody's ever done that when a title. Nobody's ever done that for denver and then away we go. I've brought up this poll question a few times and it really gets people mad but could nicole yokich ever overtake john. Elway as the greatest colorado sports figure and the answer is yes but you are going to have to really put some great things together. Couple of mvp awards couple of titles and just keep being the joker twenty nine minutes after the hour. We're gonna take a short break when we come back and talk to mark johnson about george. George cliff cough. Sammy butcher that name. New pac twelve commissioner. What it means to the pac twelve that. He doesn't really have a sports background. And what does the pac twelve need to do to grow. Its conference to to rebuild its conference. We'll talk to mark about it next first. Let's get the latest on the local sports flash the power trip weekdays at eleven on thirteen ten. Kfi k. this is cody. Roxanne lockdown broncos podcast puerto on. Nfl newark make sure you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten. Kfi for the latest news in broncos country. Welcome back to the whole show. We're live from the auto collision special studios. Thanks for being with us. We have been able to catch up with this guy in quite some time because the rockies keep putting us off but that's okay we're we're we're happy to step aside once in a while joining us now. Mark johnson the voice of the colorado buffaloes. Mark my friend. Good to catch up with you finally. Well it's been so long. I think we need proper introduction one. I'm not even sure i know you. Well i you know. I i feel the same way man we've got we've got to catch up more. We should have been talking on the phone as hour for this interview. but mark. There's a lot's happened since we talked last. There's been a bunch of stuff going on you know it's Well i guess the first and biggest note within the pac twelve in colorado buffaloes of actors do commissioner out there so we're getting. I'm not gonna pretend to try and say his name correctly right now. But i'm hearing good things about him anyway. Brady i had to do the old google and then go to videos and listen to how other people are is name and then i just chose one george cleeve kopf maybe So he has he has a really interesting background. Not one that a lot of a lot of people would say really like a football background or but again business and all everything going into. There's there's an interesting background there without question and you know i. I've talked to a number of folks who have been concerned about the fact that he was not in college athletics. and listen. I you know. As long as i've been around which is a lot longer. I like to admit I've learned over the course of my career. That at great leaders are great leaders. Okay regardless of where they come from what they do so. He's got a a very impressive resume. He's been involved at a very high level with a number of big time organizations and had great success wherever he's been so i think you know he's still young sportscasters that you have to have the greatest sports mine of the world now. We can teach you that as long as you know how to how to do. We're doing and so i. I feel the same way about this. Does he have to have intimate knowledge. You know football and fully understand the game. That's it's gonna help but you have to know. Can he negotiate Great media rights deals and digital media deals that make millions of dollars or hundreds of millions of dollars for the pac twelve. He's got a history. Doing that can't find some very smart football people that you know. He puts in the right position to make the right decisions to help out. What's going on the football field I think i think he can probably do that too. If he's a great later and so yeah listen. I the jury's out find out in the next few years If this guy is where we hope it is. Now the one thing that i think was ultra important for the pac twelve to do and finding a new leader was and your listeners. May not know this one of the great criticisms and they were many out. The previous previous commissioner was that he was not very good at dealing with the campuses and that comes down to relationships. Now anybody who had ever been around larry scott. He was a prickly character And i talked many times. He was not warm and fuzzy he was not the kinda guy that you warmed up to very quickly more. He wanted up to you now. The one thing we hear about Of coffer copper. Say his name is. He's a relationship guy and he's been real good in that regard and building those relationships in the business world and so as i was on a packed network after he got hired and they asked me about it. And i said you know what It couldn't be any worse than it was. Before i guarantee you that and then hearing about the way this guy you know kind of goes about. He's a people person so you expect there's going to be some improvement aaron. Listen i'm i'm optimistic at this point in time. I guess we'll see what the future has for the pac twelve. And i've got a little paragraph here obviously mgm but back when hulu is just starting Interim ceo of hulu streaming side of things. So that's something that's certainly going to help just getting eyeballs on the pac twelve. I mean we can go through bottom line and we can talk about all the problems with the pac twelve mark but at the end of the day. it's marketing it's advertising. It's getting more eyeballs on your teams without question i I don't recall the gentleman's name the legendary softball coach arizona's three or four national championships Really kind of went off on on the pac twelve network just a few days ago i was doing an interview and just kind of unleashed on how bad it's been for his sports so there's a lot of work to be done out. There and the pac twelve network in conception was an interesting idea an execution. It's been awful They have to work on that and this guy's got a great history of kind of correcting those kind of issues so Like i said. I'm up in michigan. This point i. I know a few people. I never met him myself. But i know a few people that have an speak very highly upset. He's a pretty impressive guy. And and so you know he's gonna hit the ground running here on june first. I guess what you brought up about. Larry scott to the campus. I saw few different quotes about. Hey we won't a guy that can be better on campus mark. What what does that mean necessarily getting to know. More and more people being a people person essentially. Well i think that the big complaint was. You know what you have here. You've got an interconference you've got one entity that's broken up. In this case the twelve entities right got twelve members and one of the issues. Was that larry scott we kind of sit there and his ivory tower in san francisco is You know multimillion dollar rent property and really didn't seem to have much interest in what the campuses were saying and one the things that's unique about league like this. I mean boulders. A different place than tucson. Tucson's a different place than than eugene. Eugene's a different place in los angeles and so every camp is going to have some unique aspects to it in some needs and some requests and it seemed My understanding is banned that whatever it campus leadership had to say that you know president chancellor athletic director coach that it kinda fell on deaf ears and it just was not much attention to that. We're gonna do in san francisco but we're going to do and the rest of you be damned and that cannot be the way this thing works. It's got to be yes. You've got one central location. He whether it's the big ten or big twelve or pac twelve or whatever but it's made up of these entities that have unique aspects and characteristics to them that have to be attended to kind of help along so the entire league and be successful. Mark johnson joining us the voice of the colorado buffaloes talking about new pac twelve commissioner george clooney of kaw and think i'm sure in like three months we're going to be like wow we were saying that. So what are the top three things mark when you think of like what what has to be done and there's so much into it but obviously you talked about the media the finances. Tv contract that kind of stuff is his voice going to be allowed one when it comes to like a playoff expansion because obviously the more teams you get in the better chance you have some pac twelve representation. Well i think in in terms of you know what. What kind of some of the issues are i. I use it on. One of them Though the playoff things going to be real but in terms of uniquely to what the pac twelve needs number one tv deal. There's got to be a better tv deal in order for this league to be on the same par with the sec. The big ten when it comes to each institution's revenue share that they get okay. That's going to be number one number. Two and one in two of connected. He's got to correct the pac twelve network. That's gotta be a enormous on. His list is in terms of the importance of what he's got to address immediately. And then thirdly is getting football competitive and that ties into what you just said. And what i mean by that is right now. I think if you look at college football Underspending honest here. I think nationally the pac twelve is looked at as probably what maybe six best football conference in america. I mean there. There're people that make arguments. They don't think it's in the top five right now as power five conferences so that has to be taken care of because gonna be the revenue generator for everything and so Look at all the missteps here. In recent years when it came to officiating and some of the mass of the scheduling. And you and i talked about you know when they were trying to put the conference in best position this past year and had a cancellation. That wasn't done. There are certain things that have got to be done in this league to make sure that football is secure and it's successful and it is you know running at full speed. Because that's the generator of revenue for everything else. So i think those are probably the top three things you gotta address. Yeah no question about it and you kinda mix the getting football competitive and then what that looks like with expense because i talked about this with even the the out the non power. Five conferences is ultimately. If you open that door where there's more chances you might have three or four star guy go with a lesser lesser school because having a chance to start and if we win we can go be in the and that's kind of similar argument when you look at it with the pac twelve. Go without question. Eighty and one thing is you're talking i'm thinking about and we've talked about the separation of the nc double a. And maybe the ncaa going away. I think that is just looking down the road at the potential -ality of that. I think that is why having the pac twelve be as healthy as possible financially is exceptionally important. Because when that break-up happens. I believe it's going to happen. I believe it's not an if it's a win win that happens. You know you wanna make sure that everybody is in total possession or position around there To be part of the right side of the break up if you will and so. I think that's something that's going to be. Ultra important here the next few years as well because you know right now we got going on You know with the name image. Likeness this thing at all of the things that are going on the transfer stuff the we're right now sitting on a fault line. I think in college athletics. I think i think this thing is about ready to turn and become something very different than not too distant future and you want to make sure your position properly when you say that mark and i know we've talked about it quite a bit but i mean. Do you see it just becoming this. This actual business. I already is a business. But even more so where. We're not even talking scholarships. It is its own entity whether it's football basketball. What have you do you see that happening. At some point. I think something along those lines now. Exactly what that looks like or what it eventually becomes. I'm not sure it's going to be quite quite different. I think this thing. you know. A number of coaches talk with gary gary. He's gotta be phenomenal. Mind this has been keeping tabs on it and thinking about it for decades other. Coaching friends of mine have been saying the same thing. They're all one hundred percent agreement. The it's coming. This isn't a it's win and when it does it's going to change and it's going leave a lot of schools in the in the cold. They're not going to be part of this thing. And it's gonna totally change the landscape of college athletics and why it is and how we look at it. And what amateurism what. He's amateurism at all these different things. So yeah it's it's coming and It's just a matter of time now. It's very interesting stuff. Mark always appreciate your insight on this and like you said now's the time you gotta get a guy in here for this conference that can give you the best shot and we know that all those dollar signs are the big ones and if you can get more money generated for the pac twelve all those big things. You're talking about coming down. At some point is going to help the pac twelve cases all schools that are belonging to without and that that's why this was so supremely important for the pac twelve. They couldn't miss on this one and again like i said around the jury is still out. We'll wait and see. I mean i all the indications point the right direction. But you you really. Couldn't you know make a mistake on this higher. In kind of perpetuate the problems This league has been dealing with and find yourself kind of falling behind you. Do it simply was way too important. I i've talked to enough leadership. People understand that they fully appreciate that and understood it and realize the gravity of of how important this this decision was so you know right now. It looks like they got it right. And we'll i guess we'll find out down. The road here is You know things. We got unfold. Mark appreciate as always man. Hey next time we chat will probably have the pronunciation. I mean you're the king of pronunciation so you'll have it down for me next time i was. I was pretty convinced it was clear cost. Yeah you're right and san. I i heard somebody else. That was the pac twelve connect person cleanup costs. And so then. I got really for a loop. So i listen. It's my offseason when we get around to You know september one. I guarantee you once the broadcaster have it down by then but right now. I'm just kind of guessing like everybody else i. I'm with you. I heard like five different times this morning. All different Mark we're real quick by the way on that with the with the names. How what's your process because there's a lot of wild dame's out there man. What is your process. D say like eighty times in the mirror. Do you write it down. That look like when you're trying to pronounce what some of those difficult names. Well for the first. And the first thing when it comes to the colorado buffaloes every year when camp gets underway. I go to the individual players. Sometimes their parents around. I go to them just to make sure that i've got it right because years ago. We had a guy that i was saying at one way. And everybody else was saying at the different way and i was getting blamed. And i'm like no. I checked with dad and mom. I got it straightened. The horse's mouth and eventual. Everyone's and start saying the way i was when it comes to the opposition We trade in the pac twelve trade. We each one of us. Broadcasters does a pronunciation guide verbally for everybody else and then i recheck that with the opposing announcer. Before i do the ball game and like you said What do you get. The polynesian. Names can be very tough. Those are ones just continue to mutter to myself the entire week leading up to broadcast. Hope i get relatively close and don't offend to get a part of that email list on some names. I might be sure throughout the season. I'm just gonna start texting. Whatever whatever i do mind. i'll just go ahead and santa. i love it man. Mark appreciates is always good to catch up again. We'll talk to you next week. Smart johnson the voice of the colorado buffaloes scary when you think about like the nc double a. And could it all. Could this business that we know as today completely change and i talked about it on the show that i it is a business. It is what it is and the the scholarships are great. I have a college degree. I do and i'm not. I loved my time at unc. It was a great time. I loved learning. I loved being in the classroom. But i don't know that that's for everybody and even if it is for people you leave your leave your college education and maybe you go do something else. That didn't even have anything to do with it. You see that all the time. So i do wonder if the ncw what that's going to look like at some point. If it just kind of separates they're still part of the school but the team that the players essentially just become employees just like the professors would be the coaches would be that you have players now their employees i. I don't know again mark like man. I have no idea what this looks like. But for the pac twelve. They need to get there. They need to get everything together. They need to make sure that they have a strong strong conference. And that's in the next five to ten years because he knows when this happened. Forty nine minutes after the hour. Got to tell you. Guys about rev chiropractic formerly the chiropractic standard. Now i'm one of those guys. I see people like saying our boy dukes with the power trip earlier they play right before us is like my back's killing me. I'm like dude. Goto rev chiropractic set up a meeting at least and they could tell you they'll they'll work with you. They'll figure it. All out dr tyler. Perry dr haley harada. This place has worked miracles on my back and very fortunate to have met these folks to work with them. Revved chiropractic formerly the chiropractic standard forty nine minutes after the hour. We're gonna take a short break when we come back. We'll wrap up our number one fighting in hockey fax yay or nay. Talk about that next. It's a party. Northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. Block party wednesdays from four to ten. Pm what's happening in your own backyard. Listen to no co- now with tanner's swint a northern colorado's voice. Thirteen ten kfi k. I'm darren done director of athletics at the university of northern colorado. And you're listening to the whole show thirteen ten. Kfi welcome back to the show about six minutes until the top of the hour. We're only on until one thirty today. we are getting. We are getting booted a little bit by by the rockies. Right one thirty one thirty. They'll have prepped for so if we go any longer than one thirty colefax. I'm just gonna be doing this the whole time. I events tech line nine seven four seven eight thirteen a one our friend. A friend of the show. Terry fry a great guy. Heck of a writer who writes books articles. Magazines just nonstop. I always listen to him back in the day and read his stuff in the post and met him at colorado state when he was covering the rams. I believe for the denver post at the time he posted this last night. Serious question and i mean it generally rather than specific because i've long post posted this regardless how you feel about fighting in hockey should there be a fight every time a player hits a star even if it's a clean hit. Now gabriel we. We're we're talking about his hit. The other day his fight the other day he even came out and admitted it really wasn't that dirty. But if somebody hits your guy you know you go after him. I tweeted back. I just said fights annoy me unless it's boxing. Mma seem strange to me to settle a dispute an organized sport with a sudden legal brawl. I mean it just seems so strange to me colefax. I'm coming around a little bit now in this text from our boy wedin said. I think it's necessary for situations like monday. Need any hits or dirty because they can into guy season Blues hit hard and we'll try to hurt guys when the ref's call penalties and playoffs. It's up to the leaders. Like landy to show them. They aren't going to take their little. We're not gonna take anymore now. I talked to our guy. clark johnson. The voice of protrade. Who is a diehard hockey game. And he always said it like this. He's like dude. Just imagine guys are running up against wall all the time. This isn't basketball. It's not football even where you can tackle each other and that takes out some of that aggression right. You got constant constant contact. You're getting the sticks are getting close to you. You're getting tripped up. You're getting shoved into the wall. Je need to have an outlet once in a while or you need to have that guy. What do they call them. The goons okay. You need to have that guy that steps and again no one would ever call gabe. Gabriel lettuce. he's the stud but he did what he needed to do. I'm starting to come around a little bit to this. You do need to have somebody stand up and say we're not going to be pushed around anymore. You seem to be good with colefax part of the game and always has been hopefully always will be it. It is weird because it's different than any other sport. But i don't think that's a reason to like get rid of it. Maybe we should introduce it to other sports. I didn't i baseball. Maybe right after i. I'm not one of those guys would say no get rid of it. I know i don't quite get it. Gabriel industry. I kinda got though. And i'm like maybe this is what everyone's talking again. I don't watch that motoki but That's been part of it. That's always been a strange thing to me. But you know people can change colfax. I told you that flop sometimes. Second hour coming up next. We'll talk nuggets blazers and nba picks. We'll get those in colfax coming up in the next hour over it back.

April 19 Hour 1 Broncos OTAs | Zac Stevens of DNVR Broncos Breaks Down Controversy

"Do we know how to do mondays here at thirteen ten. Kfi some some crazy stuff going on at power to play sports. And i thought the guys all did a great job of talking about this. And i don't care where what what the facility is. It seems like it's going to happen no matter what. The apparent parents brawl. Kind of deal. it was The video was shared on our thirteen ten. Kfi facebook page and you guys are probably been following. The story The power trip course. Michael peterson greta station has been for a few years now. Does the power trip does his own radio show. And then tanner schwinn of noko now. I thought handled it well. He was like going back and forth between michael on the air. And then you have a caller from colorado springs getting on and michael so it was. It was crazy. Show today crazy stuff man crate you know. What else is crazy. Colfax ota's or today The broncos of course opted to not participate in voluntary workouts over the weekend. Our boy well actually. I saw this for my class. But we're gonna talk to zak. Stevens of dvr broncos about this moment drew. Lock would not comment when asked if he would also attend. Offseason workout as others are monday at the facility so we know a few players are dalton. Reisner being one of them. Graham glasgow the to starting guards for this team will be attending out the voluntary. Ota's riser said yeah. I'm showed up monday and other some other guys who are showing up as well. But basically saying what's important to me is i like to train with lauren. Landau so there. You go dalton riser. I think stepping up as a leader but kovacs there could be the other the other side of that. Does the team go away. We were gonna do this and solidarity because we feel safe with covert and all that stuff essentially. That's what it gets around to mike. Klis did an article in the denver. Post is pretty. It's it's a scathing against the broncos says the this is the title after five and eleven season broncos refusing to get back to work at. Ti headquarters comes off as entitled and tone-deaf does it come off as entitled intoned. Efforts of it's voluntary. So that's the only thing i would say there is you know there's a lot of times players don't play. Don't don't go to these. Ota's the first paragraph is straight up fire colfax after long stressful months when nurses meatpackers waitresses risk their life and their health to make a buck and keep america rolling during a pandemic denver. Broncos are now wishy washy about getting back to work at valley headquarters. I my biggest thing is your five eleven and all season long. You said we're not going to. We needed our offseason stuff and more than ever we needed to have as we need to have. Preseason we needed to have those well here you go and now you're citing safety concerns tone-deaf voluntary so i you do get some guys get bonuses. Get the list for you. But i mean it's not like they don't get paid for either. Some guys get bonuses if they go to if they do participate in the voluntary workouts. But come on. I mean everybody's saying the same thing. Can you imagine peyton manning. Skipping one day of working with fellow players rod. Smith never skipped these even when he was even when he had arrived as a ring of famer house. We knew he was going to be ringing a famer. Here's my okay. So our poll question of the day today power play. Sports poll question of the day is. Are you disappointed that the denver broncos at least as a team the roster came forward and and basically said they were to skip. Ota's i got fifty four percent of the whole again saying no given the covert concerns and forty five percent saying yes. I'm going to find out if drew lock that at otas today and tomorrow's poll question. If he goes. I will ask you. Just be reading. Would this change your opinion of drew. Lock now colfax. If you if you're drew lock you have to be careful here. It's also it's kind of like between a rock and hard place you go to if you go to voluntary workouts even though as a team you all step forward brandon mcmanus as the team rep. They'll step forward and said hey safety concerns. We're not roadblock. We're not going to go if you're drew. Lock dalton rise. Okay dollarised grand blasio. We're no going for sure. Does it hurt the team. Image of you that you went even though you were speaking in solidarity and not going or does it help because it's involuntary workouts. Not the guy. I i'm not gonna pretend i know exactly what goes on to that but it's training it's weightlifting it's probably throwing. Footballs running sprinting. Those it's workouts. There are the installing offenses. And that kind of thing. I don't think so. But i'm going to get the gist. Nobody's going to know that more than our boy. Zak stevens. A dvr broncos. So that's going to be my question is i think is a from a fan perspective. Drew lock would earn some some kudos from the team. Don risers going who i think has already two years into his career who we love having on this show and if you do not follow don riser as a person you need to a great guy. I liked the fact that he stepped up and did it. Is you know. did you talk to the team. I believe he talked to the team about and said hey. I was in contact with everybody. Mike klis broke the story over the weekend Like von miller gets a five hundred thousand dollars workout bonus so i mean it's not like oh my god bless their souls. They're going to. They're going to get money to workout colfax. I wish i could get money to work out. Although i don't think anybody would pay to watch me workout so players get it. A lot of players will get something I just think this is very interesting. Glasgow said this when asked about the whole situation. Because here's a here's how it went to you know. There's a lot of exceptions made with this. As far some teams Some some players were receiving workout bonuses players union demarcus. Smith has said he doesn't want to deprive players of their money if they have workout bonuses they should show up at their teams facility so he as the union rep basically said. Hey if you have a workout bonus. Nobody's gonna think. Ill will of you if you go. So that was good at least kind of this boycott. Is this a protest basically. Hey you're not doing enough to keep us safe from the evil covid. We need to go to. We need to go to go practice Graham glasgow said this about the about demarcus. Smith's d. Maurice smith saying this. That's the best way to go about it if i'm the nfl pa in a phone interview with nine news. He said the way it's been told to us right now. I don't think. I have to go in the first week but after that i think i might so i'll do what it takes to get the bonus so read. These letters about bras are amazing. Some of these players are so great. Stand up guys well. They're are going to get a little bit of a bonus wait that long broncos players were the first of sixteen teams to announce they would not participate participate in person offseason workouts but risers off season conditioning. Coach has been the same guys. The broncos strength and conditioning coach. Lauren landau risers said. I've stayed quiet through this whole process. But yeah i'm showing i know there's some other guys who were showing up as well. I've been at the facility all offseason and what's important to me is i like to train with lauren landau. That's where i've trained most of my whole off season. And i want to continue training there. I addressed that with the team and they were very supportive of my decision. So that was awesome. I don't want anyone to think i'm going against my team. Don ryder went on to say. I've been in there the whole offseason. I like to work with lauren. Land can't be penalized for one at workout. If there wasn't an offseason bonus. It wouldn't matter don reisner said i'm coming off my second year. I have a lot of work to do. I want a second contract with the broncos. I have a lot to prove our spec. My teammates decision. I really do. I love all my teammates for for me personally already in and i want to continue to work out there. Can dalton reisner be the team captain. Now can we make that official stop with this random izing team captains. What note and rise. They're just said right there. And i know i'm bias. We've had him on the show. He's a great guy. He covered basis. Hey i'm gonna work out. I like working out. It's not a knock on those guys. I've talked to those guys were good But i'm gonna go work out no big deal and i've got a lot to learn. I've got a lot to do. I think he's been good about talking about drew lock as quarterback although he did let that one slip as long as he's here's my guy which is true. I mean what are you going to say because he might not be here tomorrow and then suddenly go. Hey drew was your guy no matter what. He's not here. Wow that's yesterday. I think he's. He's good at this man. He's great at speaking and kind of covering all basis so to speak. Did you lose. Are you disappointed that the broncos are not basically the teams opting out to. Let's see he said. Chris talking about still killing you all weekend. Man we talked. We did our mount rushmore thing. You know who. You're mount rushmore of the nuggets. Who's your mount rushmore overall. Isel dennis okay. Put isabel then isabelle again. Then he was like damn typos. It's an saul. i was like who's isabel colfax. what am i missing. He said isel on friday. Okay now that we got that out of the way i agree with kids look Oh talking about the rockies. Get what you can now for story. I give out of town visitors choices kasa benita rockies amusement park for mountain. I'm looking for a place to review for next whole review and it's got gotta be up here and i'm guessing that's what you're referring to. I don't know benita. I'd be down to go review that place though and i just saw an article about Trying to revive it wasn't going away. I don't know i've heard read something every other day. It's gone bankrupt up. No people are getting together to try to bring it back ok. I didn't see that spread rumors. I know that's how weird headline and what. Yeah i thought it was going away. But then i think that people are going to fight to keep it going good for them. Yeah you have to. What did you like the most about cassi baena other than the fact south park made an episode about the unlimited cheese enchiladas. Already awesome there so good but as a as a kid you could eat. Thirty and la la la. The kate five years five six seven eight years ago with my wife and my brother-in-law and we go down there and i had like three bites of that thing him in here and then the comedian magician. Came out one of these flops. One of the rooms off to the side. One of these flop sweat kind of guys looked like he had a few too many. He's doing magic tricks. These kids are upfront. They're watching they're like calling out his trade. I we see the things behind you like this poor guy. That was my favorite. That's amazing the black bar shows the shows they did were amazed at cliff. Diving is always exciting. How do you. How do you become the person that does that. Yeah tight little area that you're diving into where did they go. You know you always watch them swim. Wear like that's it. They die of and they go down there and go into some little benita world. It looks like a wonderful place to live and embrace children can and frolic and be happy. i give out of town visitors. I'm not sure he said chris where you're going with it. One hundred percent. But maybe he's doing the mount rushmore of colorado places to go. The is one of them. Okay can you put a mountain on mount rushmore. Now you can't car mountain into a mountain in you don't think so. Dixon says so the message from the union is we recommend you. You don't go but if not going you. Money never mind talk about playing both sides of the fence i listen. This thing is goofy. Goofy dalton. Riser statements makes me feel good. At least graham. Glasgow is kind of like. I'm not gonna this week but next week as long as it doesn't impact the bonus. Whatever their voluntary but they are paid at the same time so it does kind of have a little extra meaning than that. Would you respect factor. Go up for drew lock. Shows up today already happened this morning. So i don't know if we'll get the full gist of it but Would it go up. i mean sure. I don't put a lot of ways for me. all. I can think of in drew's defensive. He doesn't go as the last time that he tried to do. Some extracurricular activities he got ripped because he didn't wear masks. So it's like people in the room and a big room and they were sitting afar. But you got in trouble. Because he didn't wear masks. I wonder if that's like on his mind like last time. I tried to do something like this. It's got trouble here. People like national media. Cover this too and yeah in there like shame on you drew. Lock your terrible human being. And i'm like watching damn basketball game in doors. These coaches take their masks off all the time to scream at referees and drew lock. It's punish so before you get on your tower and start scratching. Remember the dude he was on. Nf nfl I can't remember but he's rippin. Drew lock shreds. And i'm like watch a damn college or pro basketball game. They were guilty of doing exactly what you're lock was doing. Only what they were doing is ten times worse because it's well it's indoors but there's plenty of people surrounding them. These guys are vaccinated. Whatever all the time or vaccinated but they were tested. Now we're gonna have a vaccine. Yeah they were tested all the damn time and it was like five guys in a room and room studying probably. They're not yelling and screaming their masks down below two. That's what every damn nba and college coach has so people that ridiculed him for that. That's awful. It's just ridiculous the whole mask thing and how they how they regulate. It is absolutely absurd. Put your mask on except for when to scream and shout at the referee and their ear. Hold on it grew. Oh that's better thanks for getting your covert all over me coach. But the mask. It looks good for optics. It looks good that you have it on when you're standing by yourself. Twenty one minutes after the hour. We're going to get to the good the bad the ugly at the bottom of the hour today. Because we going gonna bring zak stevens on next and see what he knows. What's going on with. Ota's his thoughts on this whole process. And is it a bad. Look if guys do own as verse nine. Should it be a solidarity type thing. So we'll get to that more. It's the whole show powered by. Pvc energy smoking hot monday. We'll be right back. The live united thirteen ten hamas on april twenty second. Donate up to one hundred dollars and you could win a signed. Von miller helmet go to united way. Tash will dot org slash thirteen hundred texts. Kf k. all caps. Two two six nine eight nine the power trip weekdays at eleven and thirteen ten kfi k. Bears head men's basketball coach. Steve smiley and you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten. Kfi gay go bears. Welcome back to the show. We're live from the auto collision specialists studios x. Stevens of dnv are broncos. Joining me zach. I got i got. I didn't think i'd be interested in as to be honest with you. I'm never that interested. But i i was getting out alexander johnson johnson's twitter account to seeing stuff from him. Basically saying hey. I'm not about the covert excuses. There's other stuff going on here about players and teams opting out or whatever you wanna call it. This whole thing is just very interesting to me. My man yeah it it really is just like you said. No one's interested in phase one of ot as the typically but this is different and and for a lot of reasons and there really is a lot to unpack when it comes to this. This this conversation especially with the broncos because yes it does seem like the broncos are just focused on the kobe reasons for deciding the team to opt out now. There's still going to be some guys that will attend. Ota's for the broncos and precisely to to to collect their workout bonuses and some younger guys to try to make the team but with the rest of the league. there's a lot more than just cova. That's impacting this the nfl. Pa doesn't want in-person ot as anymore so this is a great reason where teams are using ovid as one reason why they're not going but then clearly in their statements they're saying You know we don't believe that the level of of clay was changed and altered diminished any way last year. So they're really using this as a way to have it for a second year where no-one partake in in-person ota's and that they will that has an impact on the future but the broncos standpoint it truly is just for covid reasons right now. What's interesting is after. The broncos cut that statement last week leading the charge and being the first team to say that they weren't going to attend in person offseason workout. The nfl came out and said okay. Well you said you wanted You said you wanted regulations on how this is gonna go. Well here. They are and the broncos still as a team are standing by their desire to not attend in person workouts right now and brady. Here's the thing. This is phase one of the offseason workouts. This is not a big deal really in till about a month from now. And that's when the guys start taking the field together and start practicing together right now. Brady what we're looking at. We're just talking about lifting weights and its next month of the guys are just lifting weights. They can do that at home or they can do. That at the broncos facility. As well. And i think that's the thing that gets missed out on every year it doesn't matter if it's pandemic mode or not. Every year a player a dozen player half a dozen players always get grief right because they choose not to go to voluntary otas. There's a lot of guys that do it. There's a lot of guys that that go and we. We respect them for rod smith pretty vocal about it last week saying no. That would never be me. A lot of people are bringing up peyton manning on this day. Let me ask you this ac again. I i have alexander johnson linebacker for the broncos up saying he responded to the statement on behalf of the denver broncos on april thirteenth about covert in the one thousand nine the the concerns and all that he tweeted hell. Nah i'm not with covid. Nineteen excuses plan pandemic. He went on to say. I'm definitely rocking with my team and support my teammates about not being in person based off all the other factors that helped the individual players. Just not for the excuses around. I planned pandemic. Do you know how his team has really responding to his tweets or anything like that. I mean i thought that was pretty interesting. Yeah it is. And he's showing that you know at least in his mind. There's more than just over going on and now the bronco visit team and the players. Don't wanna come out and really harp on you know the fact that the play was much better last year was just as good last year even without an off season because the broncos play was not good last year five and eleven is not good fans. Don't wanna hear that But that is something. That's also happening there and from what i've heard alexander johnson. He's supports his teammates And so there was nothing behind the scenes with that. But you can kinda tell that okay. Yeah while the broncos public statement is saying that it is because of covert there are a lot of other reasons in order for the broncos to not be attending right now and and it's it's very vocal. What the nfl pa once team's do they don't want players to show up right now Because they don't want any person offseason workouts very interesting. of course we're we saw with. Mike cliffs posting graham glasgow. What what dalton. Riser saying dolled riser. Basically say hey been hearing anyway. I'm working out anyway. I thought riser kind of covered all basis on this blake by saying. Hey i'm not like breaking the solidarity thing for the broncos. But i've been here already. So why would i leave. I'm just gonna continue lifting. Which i thought he handled that fairly well saying have normally care about the bonus. Much i mean you can say that shore But he's still saying. Hey i'd still be here doing it. Is that a concern that you would see with the team as the team. They you know they spoke on. So you know kind of like in solidarity saying we're not going to go but then there are other players going whereas think from the fan's perspective that's not reading into this too much. Goes you know good on. Dalton reisner good on these guys if drew lock goes good on drew lock but is that kind of hurt the team aspect of that where they say. Hey thought we were. We were together on this. Yeah i mean. I mean i i certainly think it can with that And then also the other thing you have to take into consideration with this brady is. What did we hear over and over again. Last year from coaches to players and everyone with the organization we heard just how much the lack of offseason in-person workouts hurt the broncos. Young offense last year drew said it all the offense a player's stats shurmur. Said it vic fangio said it just how much that hurts young offense well. That was the nfl and nfl choice last year to not do that. Now it's the broncos players choice. So i don't wanna hear that. Excuse this year if in fact the players do not attend any person offseason workouts. I don't wanna hear it because you made that choice this year to do that. And hey i'm all about being safe with gobert. I don't blame those guys at all. But you can't use that as a reason for poor play this upcoming year And so what what's really going to be interesting is once those in-person workouts where you can take field. Come around in about a month and you have a month of those is the team in solidarity and coming back together or are they still split up or they're really going to be no in-person person team True practices on the field. If there's not that's that's going to hurt the team on the field and like you're saying for from a team cohesion standpoint. But i think they could get this figured out within the next month. And that would be the best for the broncos in order to get this young offense together and going And one of the guys you mentioned drew lock. He's one of four players with workout bonuses. Where you have to be in person. I don't think you have to be starting today. But in the next few weeks you need to start in order to get those von miller half a million dollars on the line. If he shows up he gets that grand glasgow hundred thousand dollars. That's the guy that you mentioned. He be there. Don't rise moore seventy five thousand dollars. Another other guy that will be there. Drew lock coming in with a seventy five thousand dollars workout bonus and he has been in the building. This offseason he again. It there today in person i was gonna ask you next to kind of give me the the watch so to speak of what you know like. Okay just because you're there. Does that mean then you have officially you have officially signed up. And you're there for ota's or if you were there all along. I don't know help me out here. Zach so true 'cause now a participant of the voluntary. Yes yes exactly he is a participant at least for day one You know he. He doesn't have to show up but from everything for drew lock will be there Just like he's been all off season. He's been working out putting in the hours getting their early and he's going to continue to do that. Just like just like we heard with dalton reisner over the weekend and reisner. that's been his routine. this offseason is going in is working with lauren. Landau was being in the building. It's just the exact same thing were drew so he wasn't going to change his stance on this And then graham glasgow. He wants that. One hundred thousand dollars. And i can't blame him so he will show up and so brady the big thing to keep an eye on here is it necessarily. Who's there and who's not there today. It's who's there and who's not there and one month from now. When i believe on march or may seventeenth is some in-person on the field activities. Take place and that's what's going to be important. Yeah no doubt about it How well let me ask you this. How much does this help. Drew locks case with broncos brass Being there being their season when it comes to him remaining the starting quarterback and of course depending on might change the way the trajectory of what happens. Come in drafting. I don't think it changes much at all. Now it's great for the broncos to see drew's putting the work in but brady that has never really been the question. No one question drew lock work ethic last year and that was why he sat out the saints game and wasn't allowed to play with because he was in on an off day putting an extra work. And then just didn't follow some protocols that needs to be followed And then was forced to be held out of that game so do work ethic has never been. A question withdrew and inside organizations. The broncos know that so. I don't think him working hard. This offseason is going to change their thoughts and from everything we've seen and let actions do the talking brady. We've seen the broncos. Be very interested in finding a significant upgrade at the quarterback position. So i think it's great the druze in the building but clearly it's not changing the broncos stance much at all. They tried to get matthew stafford They they were in talks about teddy bridgewater after the matthew. Stafford deal didn't go through. And now there's just a lot more buzz on the broncos trading up in the draft and we know if they're trading up its quarterback. I cannot wait for that draft. I'm ready for it man. I'm i love the mock drafts. Trust me i've done my own. But i didn't see what actually happens. How 'bout you and it really feels like we're entering draft mode right now. Brady like it feels like okay. We're ten days out from the draft. This this is when stuff really starts to happen now. Kind of smokescreen season goes away a little bit because boards are being set. George payton has a plan in place now And you're getting your last pro day trae lance today. Which the broncos sent pat shurmur to and we have just seen so much commitment to quarterbacks in the broncos i think that makes the draft even much more exciting with the opportunity to trade up to get a quarterback There's gonna be a lot of drama on that first day of the job. If the broncos wait till then brady. There's chance that the broncos fall in love with both justin and trae lance and they make a deal with atlanta to get to four before the draft happens. It's also something they could wait. If the only like one of those guys they could wait until draft day comes and when that fourth pick comes on the clock there guys there make a trade with atlanta but what they could also do if they fall in love with with trae lance and they really liked justin fields as well from what i've told if they move up they could do it right now to get one of those guys. Every week i feel like there's momentum shifting one way or the other as far as maybe they're interested in quarterback here. Maybe the defensive side. What is the zak stevens meter. Tell you today. Twelve thirty eight one thousand nine hundred april as as leaning toward a quarterback for the broncos somehow some way they get it done. They move up whatever they need to do. What is your meter telling you. The meter zach stephen meter. I love him for continuing to lean more and more toward quarterback. Because if you watch everything that's what everything has pointed to haven't made a single move at quarterback but they've tried to make some moves at quarterback and we know that they're going to make some moves the quarterback another thing that just points to that being in the first round conversation. That's today alex smith. Maybe the best option to lean back on for the broncos. If they weren't able to get a first round quarterback he just announced his retirement. So now there's no good free agent quarterback so that means you're going to be using draft capital to land a quarterback this year whether it's the first round pick to grab your guy or whether it's trading you know a day to day three pick for nick foles. I hope not a gardener. Menchu potentially those are the routes that the broncos are are dealing with right now so as more options. Just keep going off the table. That round one quarterback just gets more and more enticing and they have gone to both of trae lances pro days. They have gone to both adjusting fields. Pro days they are putting in all of the research and the buzz is just continuing to build They publicly and behind the scenes about the broncos being connected with first round quarterback boy man. It's heating up certainly in again. We started we we. We started the conversation with ota's and then we went draft. That's when you know things are crazy around the nfl. We're starting their last one for zach. We're talking about workout bonuses. How much do you think someone would pay to see you. Lift weights home. We're talking about any of these four workout bonuses worth seventy five thousand. I'm all in i. I don't even think my wife would pay a dollar to watch me work out down there. It's just depressing But these guys. I mean i get it. I get zach. My man love what you do absolutely. It's a it's a thrill on the show each and every week and as news breaks. We'll be bugging you as we usually do Maybe throughout the course of the week. I love it and i really hope we're talking about some news. Otherwise boy there's gonna be a ton of drama on night one of the draft. No question about him all right exactly catch up with you. We'll catch up with you next week. Zak stevens dean. Vr broncos forty one minutes after the hour. Ota's i've never really cared that much. I've never really been one of those guys colfax. That's like he's not going to as in less. There's a chemistry problem. i remember who was. It was a receiver a year. Was thomas mainstay. I'm trying to think of the receiver. That thomas new quarterback and maybe it was the trevor siemian year. I'm not real sure. I'm sorry but they didn't wanna go and i kind of made a big deal because i was like okay. It's all about chemistry now about gaining chemistry with your new quarterback because there's no more peyton manning that was the transition year for manning simeon so. That's bothered me it. That's when it bothers me when there's chemistry issues now today. Maybe not a big deal tomorrow. Maybe not deals lifting weights. These guys can lift weights at home they or at the gym whatever. They have the equipment to do that. Zacks right in the next month or so. That's when it starts to heat up however they're still drama surrounding it for sure Got to get to this story. Coming up next about nicole yokich rachel nichols of. Espn has her thoughts on the mvp. And we'll talk about that. But next i gotta get to the good the bad the ugly first. Let's get the latest on the local sports flash. Their colfax here mornings with gail weekdays. Six to nine northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi. Everybody this is dalton. Reisner two thousand. Nineteen draft prospect out of wiggins colorado and. You're listening to the whole show on thirteen. Ten ks ks. Pay to work out colfax. Nope fair enough. Nothing great sappington. There they might cause we pull muscles and stuff and probably hurt herself that maybe that's funny to some people. Maybe like put the video on youtube views on it. People laughing at us really average looking game asset colefax wanted. It's like to ten pound to ten pound dumbbells spotting you. Yeah i'm sure that would be a great for everybody. That a cab boy the rockies are four and twelve now my how gets away from ya just wow you today thankfully but they just have to get back against the astros tomorrow. Let's get to the good the bad the ugly presented by the mess. Bank banking made simple. You notice the good the bad the ugly thing about it. it's one. it's one positive story to negative stories. So i mean it's always kind of mainly a negative thing so i i try to pack a punch with a good story but sometimes it is what it is. I'm just go right back to it. The nuggets have been in the good more often than not this year and they took care of of houston on friday. One twenty eight to ninety nine into coke is only three quarters twenty nine points. Joker can shoot. That takes a big step inside and misses and then follows. It has like playing volleyball. Yes oh what a nice drive. By monte morris going around the composite resets fires hips. Gives you the feeling do that whenever he wants to. Fire it up money better and throwing it away. Oh kay jay harris chance okay was into court. That was his chance. Tough loss for the rockets had given up one hundred twenty five to their opponents over the last couple of weeks and so defensively. That's houston rockets. Hometown tv radio. I love the tryin. So damn hard defensively i. i don't know i nicole. Yoga's twenty nine points sixteen rebounds seven assists. He didn't get the triple double but back in april. He's averaging a triple double. That was due three quarters. And he's not the mvp. Rachel nichols we'll talk about that The bad the rockies. Lose the series to the mets and the door hits base. The mets talk the store francisco door with the mets fourth consecutive puts new york and fraud. It's four to three in the seven struck him out and the ball it's over edwin diaz strikes out the side of the seventh. Oh that was tough. But yesterday rockies down to one bottom of the night two outs. Charlie blackman's up trevor stories on first base. And what does he do. Lack been drove in the only colorado ron with basic to center field bringing home story in the seven to the full shift on against a big lead for story at first led the national league in steals last year. And he's warning first pitch but with throw door with tag is his older. James mccann god's down trevor story on the mets win it. What decision was that. You got trevor story on. I totally blackman up. Who i don't care what you want to say about. His is outfield. You still can hit the baseball a double ties the game. A home run wins the game. Why are you stealing. Trevor story decision. I don't think but mike goodness the rockies create new ways to lose. That's how you know. I mean i know we've all been going to be bad team anyway. When it's like for sure a fact they create new ways to lose games ways that you wouldn't imagine all right nine minutes till top of the hour. Rachel nichols have to say about the joker. We'll talk about it coming up next the whole show powered by energy also my game of the week coming up next. It's a party. Northern colorado's voice thirteen ten k. f. k. the block party wednesdays from four to ten. Pm what's happening in your own backyard. Listen to no co- now with tanner's swint a northern colorado's voice thirteen ten f. k. Hey this is mark. Johnson voice for the colorado buffaloes and you're listening to the whole show my body brady hall on thirteen ten. Kfi five minutes until the top of the hour. Welcome back to the show. The whole show powered by. Pdc energy glad to be here with us. We're live from the articles specialists studios how about this. Our power to play sports. Poll question is available at the whole show dot com. Are you disappointed that the broncos as a team will skip voluntary. Ta's kind of torn. On this i think the ones that are saying no given the i wrote in. Yes or no given the cova concerns. Because i think any other time you hear this you you might be more likely to say. Yeah they should be there but some of you are like you know what it's because the way we are with this world were in nowadays with the covert stuff and the nfl. Really trying to stay strict and say we're not gonna have any ota gatherings until the covert situation is is gone and all that so i don't know but the about fifty fifty right now. It's right down the middle for the most part of this. Does your respect factor. Go up for a guy like drew lock knowing that he's there he is there he's been working. He's been gone hard. Well at least he's been working. I don't know like to what degree necessarily. But i do think that You know him. Being there is is a good sign. Does that change. What the broncos are going to do x stevens saying doesn't change it. In fact the zacks stevens meter is running on quarterback right. Now it's shifting over to. Yeah maybe george peyton is going to get aggressive and go after quarterback moving up or if he gets them intel that says there's going to be adjusted fields available by nine. That's changed a lot. Boy that draft is lot of smokescreens. You gotta get through because there's a lot of teams that will no. I'm not interested in justin fields and then the rumor keeps going and a lot of teams say and then. Suddenly justin feels drops back a little bit because the sock. What are you know that we don't. That's how this thing works. So you gotta be very very careful with that too. As far as general manager and listening to the rhetoric surrounding a team surrounding a quarterback surrounding why why a team doesn't like a certain guy. Maybe they do. Maybe they're just saying you know after meeting. We're not so sure anymore. But they're setting up those smokescreens teams. That are back a little bit all right in the second hour. We're gonna get to more on the broncos situation alexander johnson's comments and where we are with that and the joker rachel nichols who doesn't love. Rachel nichols she apparently doesn't love nicole yokich when it comes to. Mvp we'll talk about it next.

B.I.G. Interview | Zac Stevens of DNVR Broncos on Team Controversy Surrounding OTAs

"This is your. Unc bears head. Men's basketball coach speech smiley. And you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten. Kfi gay go bears. Welcome back to the show live from the auto collision specialist studios zak stevens of. Dnv are broncos joining me zach. I didn't think i'd be interested in otas to be honest with you. I'm never that really interested. But i i was getting out alexander johnson's twitter account too so i'm seeing stuff from him basically saying hey. I'm not about the covert excuses. There's other stuff going on here about players and teams opting out or whatever you wanna call it. This whole thing is just very interesting to me. My man yeah. It really is and just like you said. No one's interested in phase one of as the typically but this is different and for a lot of reasons and they're really a lot to unpack when it comes to this this This conversation especially with the broncos because yes it does seem like the broncos are just focused on the kobe reasons for deciding the team to opt out. Now they're still going to be some guys that will attend. Ot as for the broncos and precisely to to collect their workout bonuses and some younger guys to try to make the team but with the rest of the league. there's a lot more than just cova. That's impacting this the nfl. Pa doesn't want in-person ot as anymore so this is a great reason. Where a lot of teams are using koba as one reason why they're not going but then clearly in their statement they're saying You know we don't believe that the level of play was changed in altered and diminished in any way last year. So they're really using this as a way to have it for a second year where no-one partake in in-person ota's and the hope that has an impact on the future but the broncos standpoint it truly is just for covid reasons right now. And what's interesting. After the broncos put out that statement last week leading the charge and being the first team to say that they weren't going to attend in person oxy's workout. The nfl came out and said okay. Well you said you wanted You said you wanted regulations on how this is going to go. Well here. They are and the broncos still as a team are standing by their desire to not attend in person workouts right now and brady. Here's the thing. This is phase one of the offseason workouts. This is not a big deal really until about a month from now. And that's when the guys start taking the field together and start practicing together right now brady what we're looking at we're just talking about lifting weights and its next month. The guys are just lifting weights. They can do that at home or they can do that. At at the broncos facility. As well and i think that's the thing that gets missed out on every year. It doesn't matter if it's pandemic mode or not. Every year player a dozen player half a dozen players. They always get grief right because they choose not to. Go to voluntary. Ota's there's a lot of guys that do there's a lot of guys that that go and we. We respect them for rod. Smith pretty vocal about it last week thing. That would never be me. A lot of people are bringing up peyton manning on this day let me ask you this act again. I i have alexander. Johnson's tweet linebacker for the broncos. Up saying he responded to the statement on behalf of the denver broncos on april thirteenth about covert in the nineteen on the concerns and all that he tweeted hell. Nah i'm not with the covert nineteen exposures excuses plan pandemic. He went on to say. I'm definitely rocking with my team and support my teammates about not being person based off all the other factors that helped the individual players. Just not for the excuses around planned pandemic. Do you know how his team is really responding to his tweets or anything like that. I mean i thought that was pretty interesting. Yeah yeah it is. And he's showing that you know at least in his mind. There's more than disco over going on and now the broncos visit team and the players don't wanna come out and really hard on you know the fact that the play was much better last year was just as good last year even without an offseason because the broncos play was not good last year five eleven is not good fans. Don't wanna hear that But but that is something. That's also happening there from what i've heard. alexander johnson. He's supports his teammates And so there was nothing behind the scenes there with that. But you can kinda tell that okay. Yes while the broncos public statement is saying that is because of covid. There are a lot of other reasons in order for the broncos to not be attending right now. And it's it's very vocal. What the nfl. Pa wants tnc. Do they don't want players to show up right now. because they don't want in-person offseason workouts. It's very interesting. Of course we're we. We saw with mike klis posting roy. Graham glasgow what. What dulled riser. Saying reiser riser. Basically say hey. I've been here anyway. I'm working out anyway. I thought riser covered all basis on this by saying. Hey i'm not like breaking the solidarity thing for the broncos. But i've been here already. So why would i leave. I'm just gonna continue which. I thought he handled that fairly well. Saying i'm not only care about the bonus as much. I mean you can say that you're But he's still saying. I'd still be here doing it. Is that a concern that you would see with the team as the team. They you know they spoke on kind of like in solidarity saying we're not gonna go But then there are other players going where think from the fan's perspective. That's not reading into this too much. Goes you know good on. Dalton reisner good on these guys if drew lock goes good on drew lock but is that kind of hurt. The team aspect of that were they say. Hey i thought we were. We were together on this. Yeah i mean. I mean i i certainly think it can with that And then also the other thing you have to take into consideration with this brady is. What did we hear over and over again. Last year from coaches players and everyone with the organization we just how much the lack of offseason in-person workouts hurt the broncos. Young offense last year drew said it. All the offense players that pat shurmur said it vic fangio said it just how much that hurts. Young offense well. That was the nfl in nfl pa choice last year to not do that now. It's the broncos players choice. So i don't wanna hear that excuse this year. If in fact the players do not attend any in person offseason workouts. I don't wanna hear it because you made that choice this year to do that. And hey i'm all about being safe with gobert. I don't blame those guys at all. But you can't use that as a reason for poor play this upcoming year And so what what's really going to be interesting is once those in-person workouts where you can take the field. Come around in about a month and you have a month of those is the team in solidarity and coming back together or are they still split up or they're really going to be no in person team True practices on the field. If there's not a that's that's going to hurt the team on the field and like you're saying for from a team cohesion standpoint. But i think they could get this figured out within the next month and that would be the best. For the broncos is in order to get this young offense together and going And one of the guys you mentioned drew lock. He's one of four players with workout bonuses. Where you have to be in person. I don't think you have to be starting today but in the next few weeks you need to start in order to get those. Von miller has half a million dollars on the line. If he shows up he gets that grand glasgow hundred thousand dollars. That's the guy that you mentioned. He will be there. Don't reisner seventy five thousand dollars another guy that we'll be there. Drew lock coming in with the seventy five thousand dollars workout bonus in. He has been in the building. This offseason he again it there today in person So i was gonna ask you next to give me the the watch so to speak of what you know like the okay. Just because you're there does that mean then you have officially you have officially signed up and you were there for otas or if you were there all along i i don't know helped me out. Zack is so does that is now a participant of the voluntary otas. Yes yes exactly. He he is a participant at least for day one You know he. He doesn't have to show up. But from everything i've for drew lock will be there Just like he's been all off season. He's been working out putting in the hours getting their early and he's going to continue to do that just like just like we heard dalton reisner over the weekend dalton reisner. That's been his routine. This offseason is going in is working with lauren. Landau was being in the building. It's just the exact same thing we're drew so he wasn't going to change his stance on this And then grand glasgow. He wants that hundred thousand dollars. And i can't blame him he will show up and so brady the big thing to keep an eye on here isn't necessarily who's there and who's not there today. It's who's there and who's not there and one month from now. When i believe on march or may seventeenth is winsome in-person on the field activities. Take place and that's what's going to be important. Yeah no doubt about it How let me ask you this. How much does this help. Drew locks case with broncos brass Being there being their off season when it comes to him remaining the starting quarterback and of course depending on might change the way the trajectory of what happens come. Nfl draft time. I don't think it changes much at all. Now it's great for the broncos to to seize. it drew's putting the work in but brady that has never really been the question. No one questioned drew lock work ethic last year in fact that was why he sat out the saints game and wasn't allowed to play was because he was in on an off day putting an extra work. And then just didn't follow some protocols that to be followed And then was forced to be held out of that game so the work ethic has never been a question withdrew and inside the organization. The broncos know that so. I don't think that him working hard. This offseason is going to change their thoughts and from everything we've seen and let actions do the talking brady. We've seen the broncos. Be very interested in finding a significant upgrade at the quarterback position. So i think it's great the drew's in the building but clearly it's it's not changing the broncos stance much at all. They tried to get matthew stafford They they were in talks about teddy bridgewater after the matthew. Stafford deal didn't go through. And now it's just a lot more buzz on the broncos trading up in the draft and we know if they're trading up it's quarterback now i cannot wait for that draft. I'm ready for it man. i'm. I'm i love the mock drafts. Trust me i've done my own. But i didn't see what actually happens. How about you own. It really feels like we're entering draft right now. Radio like it feels like okay. We're ten days out from the draft. This this is when stuff really starts to happen now. Kind of the smokescreen season goes away a little bit because boards are actually being set. George peyton house plan in place now And you're getting your last pro day of trae lance today. With the broncos sent pat shurmur to and we've just seen so much commitment to quarterbacks in the broncos. I think that makes the draft even that much more exciting with the opportunity to trade up to get a quarterback There's gonna be a lot of on that first day of the job. If the broncos wait till brady there's a chance that the broncos fall in love with both justin fields and trae lands and they make a deal with atlanta to get to four before the draft happens. It's also something. They can wait if they only like one of those guys they could wait until draft day comes and when not fourth comes on the clock if there guys they're make trade with atlanta but what they also do if they fall in love with with trae lance and they really liked justin fields as well from what i've told if they move up they can do it right now to get one of those guys. Every week i feel like there's momentum shifting one way or the other as far as maybe they're interested in quarterback here maybe the defensive side what is zak stevens meter. Tell you today. Twelve thirty eight. Nineteen dave april as far as leaning toward a quarterback for the broncos somehow someway they they get it done. They move up whatever they need to do. What is your meter telling you. Yeah the meter. The zak stevens meter i love. It's just continuing to lean more and more toward quarterback because if you watch everything that's what everything has pointed to. They haven't made a single move at quarterback but they've tried to make some moves at quarterback and we know that they're going to make some moves a quarterback another thing that just points to that being in the first conversation. That's today alex smith. Maybe the best option to lean back on for the broncos. If they weren't able to get a first round quarterback he just knows his retirement. So now there's no good free agent quarterback so that means you're going to be using draft capital to land a quarterback this year whether it's the first round pick to grab your guy or whether it's trading you know a day to day three pick for nick foles is not a gardener menchu potentially those are the routes that the broncos are dealing with right now so as more options. Just keep going off the table. That round one quarterback just gets more and more enticing and they have gone to both of trae lances pro days. They have gone to both adjusting fields. Pro days they are putting in all of the research and the buzz is just continuing to build You know publicly. And behind the scenes about the broncos being connected with the first round quarterback boy man. It's it's heating up certainly and again we started we. We started the conversation with ota's and then we went draft. That's when you know things are crazy around the nfl. We're starting their last one for his talking. About workout bonuses. How much do you think someone would pay to see you lift weights. I mean we're talking about any of these four workout bonuses worth seventy five thousand. I'm all in i. I don't even think my wife would pay a dollar to watch me workout down there. It's just depressing. But these guys. I mean again zach. My man love what you do absolutely. It's a it's a thrill getting you on the show each and every week and as news breaks. You know we'll be bugging you as we usually do Maybe throughout the course of the week. I love it and i really hope we're talking about some news. Otherwise boy there's gonna be a ton of drama on on night one of the draft. No question about him. I mean all right zach. We'll catch up with you. We'll catch up with you next week. Zak stevens dean. Vr broncos forty one minutes after the hour ot as. I've never really cared that much. I've never really been one of those guys colfax. That's like oh he's not going over. Ta's in less. There's a chemistry problem. I remember who was it. It was a receiver. Year was. The dairy. As thomas was in maine say. I'm trying to think of the receiver. That the i think it was. Thomas new quarterback. Maybe it was trevor siemian year. I'm not real. Sure i'm sorry. But they didn't want to go to. And i of made a big deal. Because i was like okay. It's all about chemistry now with your new quarterback because there's no more peyton manning that was the transition year from manning to simeon. So that's bothered me it. That's when it bothers me when there's chemistry issues now th- today maybe not a big deal tomorrow. Maybe not it'd be it's lifting weights. These guys can lift weights at home or at the gym. Whatever they have the equipment to do that zacks right in the next month or so. That's when it starts to heat up however they're still drama surrounding it for sure I gotta get to this story coming up next about nicola yokich nichols of. Espn has her thoughts on the mvp.

"The second and final hour of the week here. We'll be back at it on a monday. Thanks for being with us. Live on location from live from the specialist students. We will be live on location. Monday from wiggins colorado dalton reisner put on his reisner up camp. It's a free camp for youth. It's going to be a lotta fun. We'll be out there. I don't even know where wiggins is but we'll find colefax mapquest or map it. You can not mapquest. sorry. I made a reference. That's not relevant to you. i apologize. Did you remember that. Tom tom thing remember those things. Oh yeah those are amazing no. Tv's you just glue on your dash and then away you go you find your way around of now it's just in your car and the new ones banning kids. Today it's technology on your phone to every every nuts all right. Well we'll find a way to get out to even me. I'm sure i can get out there. Odds are probably get lost at least once or twice. But we're bringing the intern with us. So we'll be fine. We'll make it. They're all right joining me now. Harrison wind are nuggets insider talking all things. Denver nuggets love catching up with harrison from. Dnv nuggets harrison. My friend Do you know where wiggins is. By the way by chance i definitely have never been to colorado never near eastern colorado guy. I'm from those small towns. But i've never been so it should be a journey. I'm getting there like three hours early. Though 'cause i'm almost promising all get lost in a cornfield or something. We'll even show up on back. That's i don't know. I could end up in wyoming when it's all said and done man who knows all right harrison. Do you have an issue to two questions for you. Do you have an issue with jamal. Murray taken the picture with the sons and four guy and do you have an issue with jamal liking a tweet that a a fan put up basically said hey you should be a laker. Essentially i don't have the tweet in front of what do you think. Do you have any issues with those. So the tweet that he likes. I not buying into that at all. I think he either didn't read the whole tweet or accidentally liked it. I'm not buying that at all. Okay okay if because a lot of people hit me up about that. The only team that i would be kinda worried if jamal said he wanted to play for the nuggets would be toronto by the the team. He grew up reading for and whatnot. But i'm i'm not worried about jamaa at this point really wanted to play anywhere else. He loves denver. Easies poured his heart and so onto the team. I think he really likes it here. So that didn't really worry me The picture what. The sons in four guy i mean. That was a bad look. It was a bad look That's what i can say about it. I mean it was just a bad look like back. The nuggets fan base just keeps taking. Elle's i feel like and the sons in four guy. I gotta give him credit. He is taking full advantage of his fifteen minutes of fame. I actually got to give them a lot of props for it to be honest but the picture jamal taking the picture with him. It was a bad look. Yeah like what do you think he could met him. And it was a coincidence. And it's cool and jamal could've bought him a drink or something. Because i think we all agree sons and four guy. Did the exact right thing. He defended himself from a guy. Tried to sucker punch him. He was funny about it to imagine fighting. Someone like that and still having the wherewithal to be funny about it at the end. So i'm cool with jamal like buying a drink but hey now no photos man. My fan base might not like that yeah. It's been a rough couple of weeks. A couple of months for the nuggets fan base for sure and but but to go back to the original incident. The sons in four guy is the guy who originally got sucker punch. Yeah right right. He was in the right fighting back against that nuggets fan. Who was wearing. I talk about that guy. I don't even want to think about that. Go back to the original thing. The sons in four guy. Was you know just fighting back. It's a good thing like i mean. I think we all agree. What he did was was what he needed to do. There's he did nothing wrong at all. It was perfect. I mean he defended himself and he became famous for it. But you're right. It just feels like nuggets fans are taking els and that was just another blow and you know that's the team that swept you end Nobody cares about the guy that got beat up. We all agree but the rest of it. Yeah it just kind of stings a little bit. it hurts senior. It's like seeing your girlfriend with with her and their acts or something and it just bothers you. Yeah i it's funny though so jamal like has been out the last couple of games. The or for game one game two phoenix. I've gotta think that he's just really just wanting to feel that. Nba finals experience. He's wanting to just be in that environment. I actually look at him being there as like all right. This guy was gonna come back really really hungry to get the nuggets to that level. Because he's experiencing right now. Yeah you're right that's a that's a great way to look at. It is just kind of getting a feel for we're talking to harrison wind of deon. Vr nuggets and when you're as you're watching these playoffs playoffs and here we are sons. Are up to look and really good like they're going to win their first. nba title. How far away are the nuggets harrison because these other teams are coming back. Golden state's coming back with klay thompson. The leaker should be should be better as far as the injuries. Go in your mind. How far away are the nuggets from from being we're phoenix and milwaukee milwaukee are today when the nuggets are fully healthy. I don't think they're far away at all. I mean i think i've said it on this show. A bunch brady and the nuggets believed this as well when they got aaron gordon when they won those first seven games i think it was. They looked like they could be the best team in the league. And i firmly believe if they have remained healthy they could have come out of the west. I i really think if the nuggets were fully healthy. Jamal was healthy. If band been playing well they could beat the nixon. That seven game series That's the type of potential that this team had with. Aaron gordon with a healthy jamal murray etc now like the sons are really really good. We saw that against an undermanned nuggets team. We we've seen that against the bucks two games. They're really good. But i think at denver's healthy you know. The nuggets are right there. I really do. We know so. Will that happen next season. We don't know but when they were healthy i think they flash that potential harrison. I don't have the sun's contracts up in front of me. But but when you look at chris paul he has a player option right but is there any reason to believe that he won't be a son next year. I think chris. Paul has urged with this run another three year. You know maybe hundred million dollars dealer something like that. He's earned another huge contract With phoenix or phoenix isn't gonna give it to them which you know they're probably going to have to at this point he'll get it from somewhere else so he was probably entering this season thinking. You know maybe. I'll have to take that player option up now. He's about to get paid big time again. I've got a thing. What a crazy story right. I mean you go chris. Paul was so good for so long. Goes to the clippers and they just can't get over the hump but he's still one of those top guys and you think what the houston thing and the. Okay see okay. I guess he's gonna fizzle. This is where. Chris paul's career goes to die. He's just kind of fizzle guy and be a part of a team and whatnot and then suddenly goes to phoenix resurrects. Everything and is going to be the finals. Mvp more than likely i mean and he was in the mvp talk all season. What a wild career. At least for the last what. Five years with him yeah. I feel like the best chris. Paul has ever looked my opinion. Even going back to days with the clippers In new orleans in houston. This is the best chris. Paul is ever looked. I mean he is just taking over every single fourth quarter. It feels like especially in these last two games game one and game two kind of went the same not phoenix walker a punch punching back and forth and then chris paul has decided to take over these games the same thing. He did against denver so his ability to just take total commander game It's incredible it's been incredible walking. I looks like one of the best players in the league right now while there's no doubt i mean there's against denver. It was frustrating. But you couldn't deny it when he just go in and in the same spot over and over again sinking those shots i mean he was in some kind of mode so it was. It was poetry in motion and he continues on Do you think the suns. What do they win this thing and five they sweep this thing or do you think this goes down. Yeah i picked sons in five when still feel good about. I've gotta think milwaukee's gonna get one at home for sure at least But cenex is so tough man everything you throw at the sun they just eventually find a counter for you. Know like no matter how milwaukee's guard the pick and roll and no matter what they've chosen to take away and what they've chose to give up chris. Paul has just figured him out and the are so well coached. We've talked about this on this show on our. Dnb nuggets podcasts. All season but the sun how that he was constructed was just so beautiful like they have the shooter. they have the scores. They had the perfect role players. Like jay. crowder and torrey craig. All the pieces fit so well together. It's been something that we've noticed. All season and i feel like in the playoffs. We've just really seen that exact thing comes together. Yeah the depth to it not just depth throughout the bench but the starting lineup. Every one of those guys like you said they all play their roles perfectly in. It's it's we haven't quite seen a team exactly like this and it. It has been fun to watch at least on the side of things when you look at the rest of the western conference as you said you. The nuggets are pretty close fully healthy. But is this As far as like the jazz. The sohn's the clippers will see but when you look at the teams that were in the mix this year. I mean are we gonna see pretty much that same group but you add in golden state now as far as not even maybe worrying about the plane game once klay thompson. Sebag know for sure. I think you're gonna see the teams at the top right now. Stick at the top The lakers are probably going to have a bounce back year. You would think. And then the warriors are the big wild card you know are the warriors gonna take one of those draft picks or a couple of their draft picks and it with james wise. Been trying to get a pass siachen which seems like it is the hot room right now. If that's what happens. Yeah the warriors are absolutely a threat in the west next season. So it's gonna be another dogfight In the western conference. And it's a bit daunting. I think if you're denver thinking about okay. How are we going to manage until jamal murray gets healthy. How are we going to make sure we don't put too much of a load on the call yokich from game one of the regular season. How do we kinda way all of those things and still try to get home court in the first round. It's it's daunting a little bit harrison. Are we going to see that coach. Malone's talked about are we. Are we going to see that. Load management with nicole yokich. I know it's a bad word to some but let's face it it. It did feel like the joker had a lot on him both mentally physically. By the time we got to the end of the playoffs. So is that a realistic possibility. I asked by malone straight up his end the season presser a few weeks back like. Do you have any initial thoughts on how you'll do that next season. And he was pretty candid and he said yeah like we're gonna or plan right now is to look at the schedule on the schedule comes out circle five to ten games where we're gonna arrest them and load management because what happens is if they come to nicole yokich the day before a game and they are. We want to rescue. He's like no. I'm praying like i'm gonna play so there's talking as if they want to get those games picked out ahead of time. Now you can say that now and you know it's like last season they started. What one in four. And i felt like they were playing. Catch up the whole first half of the regular season. If something like that happens again. does that. Change those plans that you laid out. But i'd have to think they want to get him some rest throughout season. Because you could tell like you said brady how tired physically and mentally he was by the end of it Unsurprisingly he just carries such a big load. but i've got to thank and the indication. Mike malone gave a couple of weeks ago. Was that yeah. They're going to want get him. Some rest are in the season. Certainly another guy to take a look at I know the nuggets will be waiting patiently impatiently. Whatever jamal murray get back. But michael porter. Jr. we saw him. I think in the regular season. Certainly take the leap. So bad defensively at the beginning got better and then became a pretty pretty important piece to denver playoffs. Were interesting but we said it. Can you get better defensively. He did next step. would you say all right. He asked to be able to absorb those really tight defensive plays he's got to find a way to get open he can't just camp out and and hope for an open shot what we saw this year. is that the playoffs are totally different animal than the regular season Stuff in the regular season offense. It's just easier i. It's easier to move within the flow of the game in the half court is easier to get your spot. There's just so much more physicality in the playoffs. He had trouble with it and the nuggets are going to need a lot from him. A lot in the regular season and i think he's capable because he was that guy for long stretches and the regular season this past year. But they're gonna need they're they're gonna in the score twenty plus a game. They're going to have a great chemistry with nicole. Yokich was developing all season this year. But i want michael porter. Jr. to take a trip to sombor and hang out with nicole yokich. They can start to build that chemistry over the aussies. That's what i wanna see on social media like one of those dual carriages and they can have the horses pull them around. Yeah i want. I want to be those pictures leaking out over the next couple of months. I love it man all right so last one for you today. Harrison the pressure on this team. What what our expectations for the nuggets are do. They have to get to the western conference finals. And if they don't we start saying okay. What are we missing here. Is this currently constructed. As far as it'll go into something need to happen. What are what are your thoughts there. We've got to see what this team look like in the playoffs. At least i think with everybody healthy. Because i i firmly believe joe-marie is healthy nicole yolks michael porter jr. aaron gordon. If those are your best players. I think that's a team that can win a championship. And you know if we get that next season or which. I think we could know by the time. The playoffs roll around. Yeah i mean the expectation is definitely go to the western conference finals. The expectations should be to really compete in a western conference finals. I would think with that core and then you can kind of go from there but it's gonna take a while to get there. I mean it's gonna be a long regular season. A lot of it. Probably with joe out jamal. Murray that they're going to have to withstand and just keep the focus so yeah with this core with this group they definitely will have to be competitive in the western conference finals. And i don't think there's really any reason to think they wouldn't be short turnaround won't be that long until we're getting into preseason and everything harrison anything we should be on the lookout for from you and dvr nuggets into a lot of our draft coverage. We're talking about different prospect. You know three or four times. A week on the podcast. Monday through friday at two pm and then we'll have a live draft. Show the night of the draft That will be you know. I four for three or four hours so that's always a lot of fun. Yeah a few weeks away from that. So we're getting closer and closer. And i'm sure we'll catch up the to kind of get your ideas and what the nuggets should be looking at the kind of your overall thoughts on the draft to yeah. Yeah definitely happy to talk prospects. I love the draft. I i love. I love looking at these guys. Sandwich guys can fit with denver and whatnot so very excited to get more into that. Yeah no doubt about it. My friend harrison appreciates you as always look to catch up with you. Next week. i take things harrison wind. Dnv nuggets our nuggets insider and the expectations will be interesting for this team. I you know if murray is healthy in the playoffs he should be unless he gets hurt again. Knock on wood And then he then he's able to get back to the to the murray that we saw even that murray like i said i put pressure on murray a lot. But if even he's back to the murray that we were seeing before he got hurt is the is the expectations for the nuggets to to make western conference finals. And if if you say yes. Because i think you say yes then what happens if not if you don't murray has this year on his contract then he has four more years at a high mark. Thirty four million thirty six million thirty eight point. Six twenty twenty four. That's his last year. Twenty four twenty five Porters contracts going to be what do you do. I mean ease at five million right now. He's going to. I would imagine he's gonna play himself into a pretty good contract. Is that going to be in the twenties in mid twenties. High twenty s. Maybe but that that's going to be a big question. Mark to aaron. Gordon is going to have a contract coming. Could he play himself into a big contract with the nuggets. The point is there's only so many big contracts to have. And if you get to some some point in determine that everybody loves murray so i have a hard time with it because nobody wants to even think about that but what would be the move it. Would it be head coaching move. Would we all know we. We liked the pieces. That just doesn't seem like malone's getting it done so yes this season. We have been colfax. I'm telling you man we've been watching the nuggets for the past five six years stress-free not say that in the playoffs stressful but this has been a rebuilding team. Since brian shaw was fired and mike malone was higher. We've been watching this team grow into relevancy. And they got all the way to the top with the mvp at least as far as individual words. I'm sorry to say it folks but why stress-free years for the nuggets are gone. The pressure is now on last year. It wasn't necessarily on the year before that we just wanted to get to the playoffs three years. Now they got to get in and they gotta make some real noise so yeah this this season colfax along and you know it's weird you don't want to start out the gates one four. You don't want to play catch up the whole time. That's stressful mentally physically to that stresses you're superstars out as well so make no mistake about it. This upcoming season is is is uber. Important for michael malone for jamal murray time important for michael porter jr. and aaron gordon and we still don't really know what's going to happen with wilbert twenty four minutes after the hour about your take a short break when we come back more on the rockies are we destined to see the rockies just this is it they have a baseball team that once in a while has some decent guys and maybe they make the playoffs once every ten years and that's just it but coors field is is. Is that really. The is that the fate of this team. Maybe so we'll talk about it next. It's a party. Northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. Tub block party wednesdays from four to ten pm.

"This is mornings with kale and northern colorado's voice. Thirteen ten kfi. Kfi make the eye of the tiger junior to be with the denver broncos. They entered the thick of it. The thick of a fc schedule facing the baltimore ravens this sunday down yet. Another key player six. Oh eight now. Northern colorado's voice one or three one. Thirteen ten kfi k. A. morning gail from the auto collision specialists studios. Yeah fresh off that win that blowout win over the jets twenty six zip on sunday. Well we just learned that receiver k. J. handler sustained a season ending. Torn acl in that win over the jetsons status of left guard Dalton reisner as a foot injury right guard. Graham glasgow knee injury for sunday's game against baltimore. Well still pretty much up in the air remaining uncertain now. Apparently hamlin's left knee was hyper when he landed on the turf after jumping for quarterback teddy bridgewater incomplete pass in addition to the torn ligament coach. Vic fangio said hamlet had quote some other stuff close quote involved with the injury now z. now reisner glasgow. departed in the second. Half fangio did not provide an update but said that neither injury is season ending well and this continues writes the denver post ryan o'halloran the broncos early season trend. Okay post week. One after defeating the new york giants. You had cornerback. Ronald darby getting a hamstring injury receiving receiver. Jerry judy an ankle injury. They were both placed on injured reserve. Darby will miss at least one more game and judy might miss a month. Plus ouch. let's look at post week to after the win over jacksonville inside linebacker. Jessie jewel and outside that linebacker bradley chubb headed surgery. For a torn pectoral an ankle bone spur. Respectively jewel is out for the year. Job may not return until late november. And of course after shutting out the jets this past sunday Post week three. We have the news on hamlet. And well the non news on reisner and glasgow now. All told the broncos entering by their by far most competitive test season against the two and one ravens could be without seven starters fangio. The master of understatement said our depth is getting tested a little bit early yet. Thank but we are a deeper team than we have been in the past. And i think we'll be able to absorb we can only hope he's right broncos off to such a great start now handler second round. Pick in twenty twenty really has never been able show his ability because of injuries he was slowed by hamstring injury in the first training camp. That also cost him the season opener. He aggravated the injury last october. And missed one game setup finale with a concussion he also missed nearly all of this year's offseason program but he used the summer to refocus this training more running less weight lifting and injustice diet more fluids always a good thing in three games. Hamblur played eight snaps caught. Five passes for seventy four yards now. Himmler speed made him. The broncos homerun threats impact was two fold long completions and also taking the defenses tension tension away from judeh judeh judeh and receiver portland sutton on passes that traveled least sixteen so called air yards. Bridgewater was to of seven for fifty eight yards one drop. When targeting handler is final. Catch was a twenty eight yard. Play twelve yards post catch to convert third and nine on the broncos first scoring. Drive this past. Sunday will miss that. Said fangio indeed. We'll all miss that broncos country k. j. is a hard guide cover. You saw that key. Third down that we made the conversion on they were in man coverage and the defender was nowhere near him. Yeah we're going to miss them. The question is can the three and broncos heap that winning streak going your thoughts this morning. The attached we knew text number for you by the way. In case you haven't dipped to go into our texting cohort or even if you have that new number triple eight five. Three zero zero zero forty three triple eight five. Three zero zero zero four. Three six twelve now northern colorado's voice one of three one thirteen ten k. Probably heard about this but it is a cautionary tale that yes. We are in up fire season. You have this. Wildfire burning in the ptarmigan wilderness above silverthorn forcing some to evacuate just last night. The summit county sheriff's office is ordered mandatory evacuations for the hamilton creek subdivision. Fire known as the ptarmigan fire has burned an estimated thirty to forty acres as of eight thirty last night. This according to the summit county sheriff's office it was first reported reporting done by nine news by amanda has keating. I was first reported around. Four forty five. Pm just yesterday. Airtankers and a helicopter crew help to fight the fire. Monday evening. This according to summit fire and ems firefighters have not yet been able to safely engage the fire on the ground but they are staged in strategic places in case they do have the opportunity to do just that now some ground crews did remain near the fire overnight to monitor its activity air and additional ground. Firefighters will return this morning to continue working to put out the flames but fire officials said during a meeting yesterday that the weather is on their side and that they're optimistic that there won't be a whole lot more growth over the next few days but that ptarmigan fire and some county a pretty stark reminder that some of the biggest wildfires the state has ever seen started around this time last year and as mark salinger nine news points out even though the state has had a pretty quiet fire season so far this year that can all change very very quickly beyond drought conditions or heats the biggest factor contributing to the lack of fires. This year is something that yes we all can control. Most fires that grow into large wildfires are human caused so stands to reason. It's up to us all to be vigilant. You had i nar. Jensen risk reduction specialist South metro fire rescue saying personal choices. Personal responsibility are always the most essential choices when it comes to prevent wildfires and mitigating the severity those wildfires when they do occur and after a historically devastating year for wildfires in two thousand twenty well reports pretty much across the board predicted that twenty twenty one could be just as bad but so far knock on wood. colorado has mainly only seen smaller fires. Jensen went on to say small. Wildfires can become big and be devastating. We don't want to see that this year now. Some of the largest fires that burned last year are believed indeed to be human. 'cause though the exact causes those fires haven't been determined began spreading as you probably. Well remember in the fall just to right around this time last year now. The cameron peak fire ignited in august. But it didn't grow to become the largest fire in the history of the state until september and october same deal with the east troublesome fire which burned into the record books in october jensen doubling down saying it comes back to individual choices if we the residents and visitors. Colorado are making good choices. Fire related choices this fall. We should come through okay this year now. Drought conditions also improved in much of the state. Since last year though parts of western colorado of still seeing very little rain in years with bad droughts we can expect to see worse. Wildfires again stands to reason when a fire does start it also helps to have the resources to fight it and with fewer fires to fight in the state this year. Well firefighters have been able to attack new blazes much more quickly. Jensen went on to say firefighter. Availability has been key this year than than out with bigger fires elsewhere in colorado. So they've been able to get out into the local fires burning in their districts. This as that Ptarmigan fire right around. Silverthorn has already consumed thirty to forty acres. Certainly a cautionary tale to be sure at six hundred seventeen time.

Dr john's welcome to the show. So glad you're a fan. Got the love that song dancing. I i do know. Thank you for having me on. This is exciting. I'm still blessed to be on this morning. And i certainly appreciate your taking the time to do just that. And oh my gosh. When i read your bio and You can learn more about to randy. John's healthy living expert at happy healthy central dot com and you beat late stage cancer. God bless you man book thankful to be alive always kid around now. It's a great clinical outcome right so so thankful that was in july of two thousand ten. I got a late stage cancer diagnosis so a lot of things have happened over the last ten plus years and been pretty remarkable things that i've done to not only overcome late stage cancer but also keep it from coming back and not just preventing disease but living vibrant happy healthy life. Well and i think all of those factors we talk a lot about personal responsibility on the show. And you're no stranger to that certainly but there's so many things that we can do particularly during time kobe. Nineteen with the surge of that delta variant. So many things that we can do to not only safeguard but improve our health. No i agree. And i love this conversation. Because unfortunately we don't hear a lot of this being discussed. It's only about whether you should get the vaccine or not or more medical interventions which those are great. If you wanna do those those are fine. But what about the things you can do. That can really strengthen your immune system and we already know that information. Obesity are directly tied to unfavorable cove in nineteen outcomes and. I made a huge one eighty about the time that i got diagnosed with cancer. There were things that i was doing that at the time and rule is still being taught today where some of the most Some of the wisest at the time health strategies that i now know was a huge mistake and i believe contributed to not only getting cancer but for me having a lot of information fatigue and not living my best life. So let's get down to business. Shall we yeah. What were those things that you were doing. So at the time. I was really into the fitness world and and still am but i was eating five to six maybe seven times per day. Small meals all day long. I was bodybuilding trying to be A hundred eighty five hundred ninety pounds because we were told every time you eat you stoke up your metabolism great strategy. We've all been told to graze right and every time you eat you secrete insulin and when you secrete influence the bulking hormone increases cortisol. Cortisol can actually weaken and suppress the immune system. And so i think over fifteen years of feeding all day long and trying to force myself to be bigger than my body wanted to be. I think i put myself in a compromised position. So one of the things i did. I changed that. I said you know what if something's not working. You might wanna digging to start looking at the science of metabolism. What i found is that really. There's no metabolic benefits to eating more than two to three times per day. So i stopped eating all day long. And i began eating only when i was hungry and so i started going down to four meals a day down to three meals day some days out only once or twice a day. I really wanna listen to my body because your body will tell you so much about your health. You listened to it so today. Forty seven years young a once twice. Maybe three times a day and it's really changed my life now one hundred and sixty five pounds but my inflammations gone. I feel feel great mental clarity bear. And i've got a much stronger immune system and it's amazing. I love the commonalities. we share. Because i'm a former body builder myself and yeah. I subscribe to that same feeding schedule five to six times a day and what a novel concept. Eat when you're hungry try. It's really simple right. Yeah absolutely all right. So let's talk a little bit of a lot of us have been struggling to get back into our routines as we're anticipating. Whatever the new normal will be. You know it's funny because we talk about the new normal but how can it be normal if it's new. But i digress. I think about words far too much. But we're we're struggling to get back into our workout routine. Whatever the heck that might be. And that's what prompted my call to you because you had that. Recent study that was published in the journal of acumen sport and exercise saying that the eye of the tiger may be one of the best motivational songs of all time as music. Actually alters the perception of effort might even help with. Our endurance are running capacity and our speed. So's at time for us if we're trying to get off the couch and stop being zoom. Zombies is it time to us to revisit our played lists. Oh man and i'd have to agree either. Tiger that's itself won't be that that may be for sure the number one song. I probably listened to that song. I don't know millions of times at this point but the yeah it's A lot of times you know the exercising really boils down to is just a lack of motivation and you get burnt out and and do this. Kobe crisis we've been going through. So many developed really bad habits and patterns again and so always passionate kind of like the mike the boxer that goes out to the ring. They're not coming out to a dell and to lionel richie. Now listen i love it. I love but they're coming out to a song beck. Get them fired up because they're going to go do something that brings them live. That's why like yesterday like house music. I like all types of music but for me do a lot of live.

B.I.G. Interview | Zac Stevens of DNVR Broncos on 3-0 Start and Teddy Bridgewater

"Mrs niko medved. The men's basketball coach the colorado state rams. You're listening to the hall show on thirteen ten. Kfi oh basketball practice started today. So that's pretty good. It just reminded me there colefax. Thank you for that. That's how i get my news on this show Niko medved and company companyman. I am so excited. For what the colorado state rams are gonna do on the basketball side of things and we got basketball coming up. it's nuts but you know what it's act stevens time when it's zak stevens time. We go all things. Broncos football is it should be zach my friend three in. Oh but. I'm i think we're all kind of getting concerned about these injuries. Piling up tough yesterday when we heard the news about caja handler. Yeah i mean a brutal break for the broncos and you really feel so bad for cage as it. This is a guy that has done so much to stay healthy. Obviously he had four hamstring injuries. Last year has done a great job this off season and this year to not have any hamstring injuries changed up is routine. He changed the way he gets. He prepares his body. And then this freak. Acl accident happens and the really concerning thing is that it's not just the a. c. l. There's other things that that are messed up as well and so we're waiting to get more information on that from further tests but for a guy that's a speed guy you also question. How much is this going to change. you know the way he's able to play the game after this. You really hope not. But it's hard to not think about that. Well and you know especially given the circumstances with jerry judy down. You're thinking this is a perfect opportunity for for him to make some noise and boy. That's that's rough for him personally. So certainly hoping for the best that. It's it's not going to be one of those things that lingers for years to come but we shall see and probably won't know for quite some time but on the other side of it for the broncos as far as that receiving core immer extremely deep zach coming in. We talked about that in the off. Season coralline sutton and tim. Patrick are gonna do just fine but you know what. What else are the broncos looking at this stage to to get back to increasing some of that death at the wide receiver position. Yeah i mean the broncos now wish they had trinity benching race it made sense to make that move Not knowing that two of your guys we're going to get injured of the broncos. Did sign david moore veteran receiver. Who's been in the league. A couple of years has actually had some productions started fourteen games so he'll eventually start to get some reps. I wouldn't expect him to be a big player this coming week. But what i really expect to happen is the broncos rely on other positions on offense especially those two tight ends noah fan albert okwu woon-ahm those guys can be on the field every single play and they're going to be relied on a lot more not just as in line tight of. You're going to have them lined up as wide receivers and you need to get no offense. More involved The one catch on three targets last week. That's not going to get it done for. No he he needs to to be better in the broncos needs to do a better job of getting him the ball. So that's the guy where i really see this coming down to. You're obviously going to have tim. Patrick cortin the sutton on the field at the same time for pretty much. Every single play but then involve tight ends more. Whether whether they're in line or they're spread out as wide receivers. Those guys have to be the the next focal point of this offense zach any other news on the injury front and he any good news on the horizon. Yeah the i guess slightly. Good news to avoid disaster and devastation. The broncos won't be placing dalton reisner. Or they don't and reisner ingraham glass a won't Be won't have season ending injuries. Which is good but Just the from things. I'm hearing in the background right now. brady is that it. I wouldn't expect either of those guys to play this week. We'll get some more news in the next couple of days about About what's going on with both of them. But just from what i'm hearing. It doesn't look good for either of them this week. Which is a big concern because brady the interior of the offensive line was already my number one concern for this team and now you're not just down one guy. You're down to guys to veteran guys on that line. That's a big concern now. I like tiny mucci talent But he certainly hasn't been perfect when he's been in these past couple of weeks and then quinn. Minors again really liked the talent. But it's very clear that he needed a full year to transition from you know division three up to the nfl game and so he's forced in there That's gonna be tough especially with a good baltimore ravens front seven coming out. You said it. I mean as you're talking i'm thinking to myself man what the wise guys are not be filling in on this yet because the bronco checked are one and a half point. Favorites ac and i thought fully healthy for both teams and other ravens have had issues at running back yet. Lamar jackson's carrying the running game for them. I fully healthy. I'm thinking the ravens should be the favorite even at hall even on the road against denver. What's going on with that. Pick what can you tell us. Yeah i mean. How crazy is that. And i'm pulling it up right now. Radiant in the line is moving closer to zero right now. Broncos still a one point favorite and you can't be talking about disrespects from the broncos anymore maybe individual people nationally disrespecting but the nation is certainly picking up on the broncos and the nation of like deputy is really focusing on the injuries because so far. The broncos have been able to overcome injuries last year. We know the broncos were devastated by injuries specifically at the beginning of the year. They're devastated by injuries again. And they're not using it as an excuse. They're not using it as a legitimate reason. Why they're struggling. They're they're just they're filling and going and that is the difference between you know a borderline team and a really good team. So the broncos are absolutely doing a great job overcoming that but then you also have the okay. Well they've played three teams. That are only nine and now you have the baltimore ravens that are coming in coming in off a Last-second sixty six yard field goals. They're coming in off beating the chiefs two weeks ago. None you have the steelers or just always tough team to play. Even though they're struggling right now and then. Of course the undefeated raiders and then what may be the most difficult game of the season Thursday night road game in cleveland. So this is the real test of the broncos but brady a great thing is the broncos built themselves up Such a nice padding with this three in those start. They beat the teams that they were supposed to be. Which these broncos teams have not done in the past so that is something different than teams in the past And so that's a reason to say that this is the team of the past and then also if they go to and to in this stress brady. They are more than fine. It'll be five and two coming out coming out of a brutal stretch. That's a playoff team. Right there One in three okay. You're a little nervous. And then obviously oh and four The things that the wheels of absolutely fallen off and we are talking about blowing everything up. The good thing is like you said about those first threes. They didn't just win. They handled both three teams. There was never really much doubt especially once we crossed over into the second half. What's going to be interesting. This is why the nfl is so magical. Why football so magical. You know the first three weeks can be can be great but it can change instantly like you said. Raven steelers raiders browns. We could get to that point. We could have be having way different. Conversations about teddy bridgewater about the rushing attack about the defense about vic fangio but for now. Teddy bridgewater has been such a joy to watch such a joy to hear about as far as leadership goes. You know that that quarterback competition was so interesting but it does seem for now like vic fangio absolutely made the right call. Yeah and like you said. He's passing every single test he's passing the stats test and flying colors. He's backing the leadership. Says he's passing the eye test as well. Just how comfortable impatient. He looks in the pockets. Incredible and maybe the brightest spot for me. Because i knew he was going to throw the deep ball from what i thought training camp but what. What i didn't know was how good he was going to be. Outside of the pocket. I knew he was going to be able to manipulate the pocket. Well but when he gets outside the pocket. I mean the place here. He's making our dynamic. They're fun they're entertaining They're off script when he's rolling right and then he throws it back into the middle of the field that ill advised throw but you know what if you do it in a good situation that you're just a playmaker and that's what teddy bridgewater has shown in these first three games as he. You know every good quarterbacks that game manager every great quarterback also had something else to them. And that's what teddy bridgewater has shown and these first three games. And and you talk about building margin of error ted. He's done that for himself. It's quarterback passer rating quarterback rating. All of those stats are so that. Even if he comes down a little bit he's still going to be playing at an extremely good level. Now do you want to see them. Do better in the red zone. Of course you do. But brady isn't a good to be able to build off of things and continued to get better when you're not just three. No but you're dominating team yeah no question and you have a lot of things going for you right now. We can go to the defense here in a moment and what we've seen out of that group but what what is it i mean. Is it just a better caliber team around teddy bridgewater because let's face it. I've watched some teddy bridgewater games. But i haven't watched them as closely as i've been watching the last three weeks and the preseason to me and again teddy bridgewater diehards vikings diehards. Whatever might say different. But i i don't remember seeing this guy on a weekly basis except for maybe what is rookie year. Second year in the league. Yeah exactly you gotta go back to his early time in minnesota And then of course the five games he had with sean payton in new orleans on a lot of people. Just ride that office. Oh well yeah. He had sean payton with him. And those five games. He went five zero nine touchdown to interception that was elite level. Play right there. But a lot of people like i said discounted as well. That was all sean payton doing. And he had so much talent around him in new orleans. Look how much talent is surrounding him in denver right now. Of course injuries have taken a little hit to that but he still has a pro bowl receiver and korten sutton tim. Patrick may be even better. Received courtroom sudden is right now they. They're running game actually has been disappointing as well Now they're seven than the league in rushing but The the average is that they've had have not been good so teddy teddy's really took this team on his back and been able to do this Without the best supporting ground game in the league right now and then you look at the inside of the ball and brady one thing that we talked about. When when vick was hired as the broncos head coach was okay. It's going to take some time for this defense to become the elite vic fangio defense because his path to stops with the forty niners and the bears. It took him until year. Three for the defense to be elite. Well what's happening right now The the first two years kind of a disappointment for from the defense. They weren't getting the sax they weren't getting the turnovers they were having some impressive gains but overall it was a little bit of a disappointment for having a defensive guru as your head coach but now years three and the defense is absolutely elite. Only allowed twenty six points per game. And that's including special teams touchdown. So they're really averaging just six points per game and i don't care that they've been playing two rookie. Quarterbacks and daniel jones they have dominated absolutely dominated these teams and you're seeing turnovers. You're seeing sacks. That's what i wanted to see against the jets. I know the jets are bad. But what do you do against bad teams. You absolutely annihilate them. And they did twenty-six nothing but they're getting after the quarterback von miller with four sex and then everybody else was getting in the mix. Alexander johnson looked fantastic. So sometimes those games i mean. I know they're against bad teams but their confidence builders and you're absolutely right. This defense looks as good as we advertised in the off season. Yeah exactly and that's even with them taking hits ronald darby your without what you know your high price corner. You're without bradley chubb. One of what. What we thought was a foundational piece on this defense you out with one of the best players. That was playing on this team in josie jewel. He started the year incredibly well. And you're still able to do this and look at the margin of error that they have now the wiggle room that they have when they play the baltimore ravens. They can give up over two touchdowns more than than they allowed than. They've allowed their three previous opponents to score and they still should very much have a shot because if they're allowing baltimore to score twenty one to twenty points or twenty one to twenty four points. The broncos offense should absolutely be able to put up twenty five points and win that game for you so The margin of error that the broncos built themselves. I is a ton right now. And there's very much room to be very encouraged about what this team can do in this next difficult stretch. What are they gotta do to beat the ravens at home on sunday They've they've got to contain lamar jackson. Turn him in to a pocket. Passer and then the secondary will be able to handle the rest lamar jackson when he came out. He was very much just Known as as a big time running threat. He's developed his game where now he can win on the ground he can win through the air. But the broncos need to make sure that if he's going to win it's through the air because that's the broncos strength right now is that pass defense and so it's going to be key to and it sounds weird but you don't wanna get too much of an interior pass rush because that will force the mark jackson out of the pocket and that just creates nightmares your pass defense and it creates nightmares for him running The second thing is brad is maliki. Maliki read and von miller going to have to rush them effectively but keep him inside the pocket. Lamar jackson can win this game on his own And the here's a crazy number for you. In the lamar jackson era the baltimore. Ravens are nineteen and one when they score twenty eight or more points so containing the are jackson and keeping them under that number will keep the broncos in the game. I know there's other guys that have done it but mango mac. That first game of the season for the ravens. Mr mr crosby was getting after it. So i mean that might be one you want. Go look at and how to contain Lamar jackson zach. What are you working on forest man that we could check out the next couple of days band is breaking down more more of these next four games and brady kinda like we talked about it. I don't think it's as daunting as people make it up to be so I'm gonna break down just exactly why that's the case and it's it's a very tough schedule and it's much tougher than the first half of the then the first three games but i don't think it's as bad as people think boy if you can find a way to beat this ravens team at home which like you said. It doesn't seem that far out of the question you got to feel like you're playing with house money going to pittsburgh in two weeks. Yep exactly and then there's a chance that. The raiders and broncos can be undefeated going into their week six game and men. Would that be so much. I hope i hope there. Hey we asked this question real quick. I got about thirty seconds sack. Who do you think has the best chance in the afc west to dethrone the chiefs at this point as afc west champs The raiders broncos chargers. Oh man that that's a. I mean i gotta go with the team. That just beat them. The chargers justin herbert. Looks like the truth and brandon's dailies doing a great job with with that team. Yeah listen either way you slice. Afc west looks good. Zach my friend. We'll talk to you soon. Right on brady. Thanks for having me on. Appreciate your man. Eagles and sea issue partnership working with orthopedic and spine center of the rockies there.

Nine seven zero three five three thirteen ten nights seven zero three five three thirteen ten. Let's take a look around the sports world starting first with the denver broncos on saturday their second preseason. Preseason game preseason matchup against the seattle seahawks and the quarterback battle the quarterback controversy rolls on teddy bridgewater. Got the start in seattle. And i took advantage of it. Nine for eleven hundred five yards and a touchdown on the On the evening another touchdown scored well by dalton reisner. Yeah i don't know if you guys saw this but Running back was headed into the end zone and got kind of caught up there right at the goal line and dalton just grabbed the ball out of his hands took took it in the end zone now very often. You see left guards scoring touchdowns but dulled reisner does Get the touchdowns scored their this team look in the preseason if the preseason counted this team would be looking like a super bowl favorite but Unfortunately it does not thirty two three. They beat the seattle seahawks and In in what was the second preseason game for the denver broncos. This defense. I mean looks incredible i get it second third third Teamers so i've said already. And i have to continue it this way. I don't put a whole lot of stock into the preseason gaped because you've got guys out there that are normally not used to playing with each other there's something to be said for building that camaraderie between those eleven on either side of the ball on offense or defense and on special teams. And that's where. I'm going to continue to be. How much stock you putting into this Rough night drew lock sacked a couple of times to fumbles but he did recover. Both of them and the offensive line looked rough in front of drew. Look at the second teamers and there was not great. Drew goes nine for fourteen hundred yards. No touchdowns no interceptions not not going to break this down for you because to be quite frank i. There's there's a lot of other people doing that. There's a lot of people Doing this and the whole show from twelve to sue. Brady's gonna give you his thoughts on this on where they go. Look i said from the beginning. If if you don't get aaron rodgers we don't get aaron rodgers. Teddy bridgewater needs to be the guy i truly believe. Teddy can lead this team to a winning record. And i you can be battling for a playoff spot with where this defenses at with these weapons that they've got on the outside so a couple of key points that have that i've seen thrown out there over the weekend that i i really do like That i think are worth noting you know if if teddy bridgewater is going to be your guy then why would you pass up. A guy like justin fields now. Patrick tan tana's playing to the point where you say. Yeah that's understandable. This guy is going to be an elite elite cornerback for quite a time to comment. It looks like early on. But why not take a flyer on a guy like mack jones and this i think really has to put away any any conversation about all. Was this even really a battle to begin with because the denver broncos wanted and needed drew. Lock to work out here because then at least you've got to hope that this is a franchise guy. Teddy bridgewater is not going to be your franchise quarterback. He's not turning into a little bit of a journeyman so they need drew to work workout. So i think that this was a legitimate quarterback competition. I don't think this is just. Hey we're going to put this on for a while but this also goes to say look drew. Has its flashes. there's no doubt about it. But there's a lot of quarterbacks out there who can show flashes of brilliant digging show. Hey you know. Maybe i can be the guy and it's landed a lotta guys really big contracts. My mind goes back to matt castle. What the new england patriots. When tom brady goes down right. I mean he added his flashes and a lot of it goes to what new england was doing already but he goes on to kansas city. He's serviceable but one of the other takeaways from this weekend that i thought it was a great point. Put out there was a. There's a lot to be said about drew walking. He can get better. He can get better well. Why can't teddy. Why can't teddy bridgewater showed that he's improving and show that he's grasping it and yeah he's been in the league for quite some time. He's bounced around and had injury concerns and this that and whatever but teddy bridgewater can be better and you get them in the right system. He's a guy that can win games so right when we said last week that look. Hey it's looking like drew's going to be the guy. I think that all changes. I think that all changes after saturday. Does this controversy as a quarterback battle. Come up now. I mean does it continue on. Does it re said and say well now. We're two preseason games in and we still don't know do we wait and see or does it. Go and vic fangio today or tomorrow says he. Eddie bridgewater's our guy. We're going forward with it. We're gonna we're gonna go with this going to be A crazy time no matter what. But the broncos now two and in the preseason can that all translate over to the regular season. Can this translate to a winning a winning team. We'll find out let's say at the colorado rockies the rockies had been very hot at home they had one nine of their last ten or had one nine in rather at coors field had won five straight going into their match up against the arizona diamondbacks on sunday. John gray gets the mound for the rockies on sunday and well it It didn't work out too. Well for the iraqis are fifty seven and sixty seven as they lose to the diamondbacks eight to four yesterday in in a slugfest John gray gets the loss. He moves Now to seven to ten on the year he goes five and a third gives up. Five earned runs struck out. But it wasn't what the rockies were looking for as taylor widener the starting pitcher for the arizona. Diamondbacks goes five gives up. Just one hit one earned run And that was in the in the first inning the rockies struck and just really couldn't get it going they tried to make it a game late scoring two in the bottom of the eighth but at the end of the day there's oh madonna arizona diamondbacks walk away with the win. Eight to four so the rockies are creating a lot more questions for themselves now who are you thinking. belongs on this team going forward. Is there anybody that you think. Yeah you know they're they're going to be serviceable. That could be good at d. As i think has been a phenomenal catcher this year for the rockies. One that you could maybe look at going forward garrett hamson some of these other young guys but we shall see the rockies in another match up on the road tonight against the chicago cubs six. Oh five first pitch on that one. You can hear that game in its entirety right here on thirteen ten. Kfi k. a. r. excessive of flair and hair poll question With with the fda fully proving the pfizer vaccine is that gonna mean vaccination rates. Go up got a texture here. Obviously the fda approval doesn't mean anything because they are still telling people that are fully vaccinated. It is best still wear a mask as well. It doesn't make any sense. Yeah it doesn't make a whole lot of sense it just quite frankly doesn't and what my question is is okay. When is the target point going to be that he say he. We've got enough people vaccinated. You know that. Where when do we say that we've got enough people vaccinated that. Take the mask off if you're vaccinated. There's enough people out there who have received this vaccine That that you're not going to get sick. I think now that you've got the fda approval on a drug now it all turns to rhetoric. And how do we talk about this. And how do we treat this. That's an ex- dive more into the topic when we come back because there's a lot still to be worked out. It is confusing time. It's it's a very strange time. But we're gonna dive into all of that and much much more looking for a lunch to start your day off for eight. Start your week off right mondays.

Kfi ten sixteen the time more of my thoughts on the fda approving the pfizer vaccine. What what it means where we headed now as a country when we come back has no co now presented by the j nine agencies rolls on right here on northern carlos voice. One zero three point one at thirteen ten. Kfi game everything you need to know about. Northern colorado is unknown code now weekdays at nine northern colorado's voice one zero three point one in thirteen ten kfi k. Twenty two welcome back to the program. Appreciate you being with us breaking news this morning. That the fda ads gone ahead and has fully authorized the pfizer vaccine. And this has never happened before in a lot of ways especially talking about how many people have already received the shot. Two hundred million americans have already received the pfizer vaccine shot. Nearly a hundred million Across the globe have received. So you're talking about a test study that has been done. It's there and now. Where does this. I mean what is due for consumer confidence right. That's what a lot of people look for. What does this do for the confidence of people being able to get this. Does it change the minds of anybody or does it still say look. The fda has done this quicker than it's ever done it. There's still skepticism out there and that's where to be quite frank. I'm a little torn as well because it was done was done quickly. But let's not forget what i just said. Nearly three hundred million people have already received this vaccine and really if there was serious serious side effects consistently serious side effects. We would have heard by now. And this is where we need to squash some of those conspiracy theories right People saying well. There's there's probably side effects out that the media's not the media's gonna cover that if that is the case the media will cover that but what's next now that the pfizer vaccine is completely. Fda approved well as this ap news article points out. The fda's actions may also lead to more vaccine mandates covering students employees and customers. We are going to put our free market to work more now than maybe we ever have because you will see. Companies normally large large companies right. You're talking to corporate industries that are going to require vaccination from their employees but on the same hand. I think that it's going to government is going to be. The government is going to be very very Hesitant to implement vaccination mandates because you're treading on your treading on dangerous grounds at that point. Now we say the government. Well who is the government you could very well see local counties maybe even cities that could start to put this into place but what type of control. They have over their citizens. There's a lot of questions still to be answered but what this does with the visor vaccine being fully. Fda approved it answer some. It opens up a whole lot. More mandating becomes much easier. When you have full approval said dr carlos del rio of emory university. I think a lot of businesses have been waiting for it this month. New york city new orleans and san francisco imposed proof vaccination requirements at restaurants bars and other indoor venues at the federal level. President joe biden is requiring government workers to sign forms attesting that they've been vaccinated or else submit to regular testing and other requirements anxious. Americans increasingly are on board close to six and ten favor requiring people to be fully vaccinated to travel on airplanes or attend crowded public events according to a recent poll by the associated press norc center for public affairs resort research. Now six ten. Yeah that sounds overwhelming right. Sixty percent of people out. There are in favor of this. But let's you. The demographic of who people are told the delta variant has sent cases deaths and hospitalizations soaring in recent weeks in the us erasing months of progress. Now i don't know if those are the terms that i would use there. Has there been an increase. Yeah absolutely are ian anywhere close to where we used to be no now. Let's let's use. Let's use context for weeks. We've watched cases go up at an alarming pace among individuals who are not vaccinated while the vaccinated are largely protected said. Dr thomas. J aragon director of california's public health department. If you are not vaccinated let this be the milestone. That gets you there. The fda regulators in europe and much of the world initially allowed emergency use of pfizer's vaccine based on a study that tracked forty four thousand people sixteen and older for at least two months. The time period when serious side effects typically arise that shorter than the six months of safety data normally required for full approval so pfizer kept that study going in the fda also examined real world safety evidence in deciding to fully licensed the vaccine for people sixteen and older those studied and longest visor shot still has emergency use authorization for twelve to fifteen year old as four effectiveness. This is another area that we've talked about there. Were seeing the effectiveness of these vaccine. Start to decrease just a little bit but as for effectiveness. Six months into pfizer's original study the vaccine remained ninety seven percent effect Protective against severe cova nineteen severe protection. It gets milder infection wayne slightly from peak of ninety six percent two months ago after the second does to just eighty four percent by six months so yet that the number has gone down. The amount of the amount of people who are seeing these breakthrough cases has gone up. But where does it. What does it mean. Where does it go the breakthrough cases. I have been notoriously less dangerous less deadly less series. That is good news. But i'm gonna tell you this and and hopefully there's a lot of people who are telling you this that this should be left to the hands of the individuals still to this day. No pressure no forcing. Let's leave this to the individuals and let's change the rhetoric. Look where that texture that was talking about was talking about yeah okay but but still fully vaccinated people are getting covert. Yes they are. Let's change the rhetoric from this of. Oh my goodness this could kill everybody in. Its wake and and this is. This is a horrifying thing for everybody. Because it's not just like when you received the flu if you get the flu and your elderly and immuno-compromised and things of that nature go into it. Well yeah then it gets deadly now. This needs to translate more into the conversation of. Hey let's talk about this like it. Is the flu if you're elderly if your amino compromise if if you have any of these other things and you decided you i wanna go out to this. That's a risk that you're gonna have to take because we've had the flu around for forever right and yeah. We didn't see anybody having to show documentation of getting the flu. Vaccine of getting the flu shot at this point so many people had been infected with kobe. That there's going to be various out there after delta there will be another one and after that there will be another one just like there's different strains of the flue so now it's there. The fda has fully approved it the pfizer vaccine. But what does it really need to change. It needs to change the rhetoric on how we're talking to people about whether they should or should not get the vaccine about what's right for them and their families and about where we go ten thirty one the time before we take a break futurity. I insurance so i met doug o'connell he was up on the golf course actually up at the club gotta talking a little bit about Exactly what he does and the type of person he is and then he's like let's have lunch talk more about Have you meet jake schmidt and these guys know these guys know what they're talking about so you work your entire life. You work so hard prepping planning being prepared but you get things in twists and curves life happens right and hopefully you do know what was going on. If you're in the you got your gut your money. Put aside but j schmidt and doug o'connell futurity i insurance group. They offer a free social security timing analysis for those who are making decisions on wind activate their social security retirement income activists. Too soon yet. Live what you're expecting of yourself. Well those last year's could be tough. Talk to jay schmidt or doug okon futurity. I insurance group ten thirty to the time. Let's get a break when we come back on the other side. Cody wilson denver and front range. Weather joins us to get the weekday Forecast for what we can be expecting this week. But first let's get to the bottom. The our news and weather center. Join clark johnson and bruce dick for cargonoff coach weekdays at eleven. Another in colorado's voice. One zero three point one in thirteen ten. Kfi k. inclusion specialist studios. Appreciate you being with us here on monday. Got text here real quick before we get with. Cody wilson Asking rhetoric aside. What's the justification now for not getting the vaccine in really right. There's not. There's not a lot there unless you truly just feel right now where you're at you're against it and that's okay. I think this gets to a bigger point of. Hey let's talk about this in a civil manner. Instead of the you know the virtue signaling and these other things of coming out in just pure wretched hatred for each other on one side or the other. That's gotta stop and unfortunately you can't put that rhetoric aside because that question how it was posed texture. I think it's a very good question. I think how you said that how it was presented. Let's have that conversation. I think that's great. But i've said from the beginning i'll say it now. I've got friends on both sides that have not been vaccinated some that have. I've talked about it on here. I have not been vaccinated for cove. Nineteen not that. It's any of your business. But if i'm going to be talking on a radio show program you deserve to know where your were. My side is coming from deserve to know you know those those biases that we all have. I'm twenty four years old. I've got. I've had the head the cove it so i believe the antibodies their help. I mean you know compromised. And i believe in personal responsibility. Meaning that if somebody is any of those things that i just talked about. They know the risk that they're taking when they go into public. That's where i stayed on that but wanted to get to that real quick all right. Let's let's get on a lighter note. Let's let's get this monday going Cody wilson denver. Front range weather on facebook joining me. Cody how are you. my man. kay lighter note. Are you saying i'm skinny. Yeah yeah something like that. Great way to start a month. Yeah let that go cody. We saw again over the was that friday. Do we have another kabbah. Mos come through a pacman cabela's pacman plan lamb. Oh that's right. All the folks in longmont had about ten to fifteen minutes of just torrential rain marble sized hail and then snap your fingers and it was gone. It was kind of shift. But i mean that was kind of the dow was kind of the weather pattern towards the end of last week yet. I mean we're just in a southwesterly pattern which is there's enough moisture in the air to spark a storm here spark storm there but predicting where it's going to happen i mean you can have better luck picking lottery damn near impossible possible yet. So what do we see now. I mean we saw the warm up can happen yet. What do we see now for this week for this week. It's gonna be hot. We're going to be in the low to mid nineties except if you're on a southeastern planes by a lamar hunt you're going to be above one hundred degrees in. Sorry it's gross. There's going to be a back door cold front that comes through colorado wednesday morning. Back door is just from northeast to southwest retro grades. And it's gonna take some of that smoke from the northern plains and bring it back into colorado sadly but it shouldn't be as bad but what it does do is it changes the wind direction and bring in a little more moisture in so we've got a better chance of showers and storms with another shore. Wave on thursday. So that's our next best. Chance of rain is that where's that looking at northern colorado. That's going to be widespread chances for everybody. Equal opportunity for eight. I love it. I do as well so we see this. You know we've talked about Friday night man. I was i was hanging on the patio with my folks grilled a steak was enjoying a whiskey and it was phenomenal evening but we we had to fire up the outdoor fireplace that we had because it was that that chill was back. Man it was refreshing. Isn't it though it was refreshing. Then the next day is out there on the gone winner. Are you gonna see. When are we going to see more of a longterm okay. That chill is kind of in the air when we're going to be so you start to see evidence of that now and the trees are starting to change over and i'm like a little tear coming over the weekend happiness. I'd give it a couple of weeks to three weeks when we get into the middle of september when is right around the peak of the atlantic hurricane season. Ironically you're really going to start seeing those cool nights dues going to be on the grass. You take the dogs out to go. Potty you're really gonna notice it in the grass and the average high temperature. This time of the year is now starting to drop in through the mid eighties. So those long days going to get longer shorter days. They're going to get shorter. Well okay so this. This might be the dumbest question. I've ever asked on this. Show fire away and you laugh because you've heard me ask a lot of dumb questions along the way. But cody when it's ninety four feels like august and it's in the afternoon or even it's eighty nine. Yeah why does it feel so much than when it's a hundred degrees in the middle of june. I mean why is that. There's just me making things up in my head. I think perception is reality right and it. You know it's when we take that perception and make it our reality. We tend to We tend to associate things. And i've talked about this in the past where we try to normalize things Like that's how i experience it. That's my reality. But he else feel that way. And i'm going to say that if it wasn't for the higher humidity because the sun angles actually lower. It's going to continue to get lower as we go into the seas later into the season but my experience tells me that it it's really not that bad But higher humidity makes the heat index higher humidity over the generally in the morning about ten eleven o'clock in the morning. Walk out to get the mail in your like. It's really uncomfortable or here. But then after about eleven or noon the humidity just tanks and it's down into the teens and it's dry and now you've got chapped hands and lips. But so that's really the only time of the day i would experience. You know it feels hot and gross out here it. It doesn't last all well. I don't know. I understand a lot about the perception and reality conversation but apparently my slight clans have taken my persuade perception and said yeah this is. This is how we're going to deal with this. Because i was playing cornhole saturday afternoon and i tell you what i was sweating like crazy. Maybe it was just that intensive no not allow really could decade also be a factor coaches my personal weather guy. I know i pay dark handsome. You need to do. Maybe that's an idea. Hey if you wanna hire whether guy that has to respond. hey. I'm headed to this for the weekend. What's the forecast. I'm talking with other entrepreneurs. Would you rather do that or would you rather be trust their their weather apps people contact my follow up question to that. Yeah for people who are checking you know for the forecast a long the way i mean. Obviously you're your site is great it. What is what are you recommend for the average joe if they're just looking for a quick. Hey what's the temperature going to be what it would. Hey what would you recommend. Because i've found that the the one that's installed on your iphone isn't great now. It's not you know if people want to keep apps on their phone. I'm not going to discourage him from that. The use them for is what. I'm very outspoken. About for radar and for current. Temperature's i think that's all are really good for long-term forecasts so no not even close again farmer's almanac same thing it's good for a lot of things but seasonal weather forecast is not at all so i would encourage people if you want to use the apps on your phone. Just use them for radar and use them for temperatures. Just kind of give you a good idea of what to expect. But that's all. I would use them for so you're whether or not i mean there's no doubt about it what do you what do you look for like what. What do you use together your comprehensive data use a bunch of things. There had to be giving away secrets but roach is fascinating to me because y- honestly you you predict it with more accuracy than a lot of people that i've seen so it's just fascinating to me From from the back of well how is this. Well i i if you have followed me. Since the big snowstorm. We had back in march. I created what. I called the transparency project. Where i actually pulled the curtain back on how i make a weather forecast because i wanted to show people in colorado. This is the process. I go through to make a weather forecast. It's a lot more complicated than p than we give it. Credit and a lot of people just don't understand how difficult it actually is especially in this state. So i thought well we're forecasting a lot of snow here but people don't understand what goes into a weather forecast don. I pull the curtains back. Show him exactly what i do and what i look at and how i put that into a weather forecast and maybe that'll help break the bias and break some of the app at the well developed trust and honesty and transparency. That's how you build trust with young pool and anybody who doesn't want to do. that's probably shady character. I would like to think so. I'll throw that out in sheep's clothing. I don't care what goes into what goes on nauseous right. It's a hidden soundproofed for so. That's interesting and i think it's it's fascinating what you do. Because there's so many. I'm gonna use air quotes here meteorologist. South and just like there's so many journalists air quotes again out there so knowing where and how people are collecting their data and making their their calls on it. I think is very. There's there's a ton of forecast models that go into a weather forecast. I like to look at all of them for commonalities and you know if if i see that all the models are showing something similar than our forecast. Confidence goes up right. But if they're all over the damn place and we don't know what's going to happen that's where you kind of just kick the models to the side and use your own intuition right and forecasting experience and and trusting. My gut has served me really really. Well what's your favorites weather event to to cover. Oh my gosh. I talked about this page last night. And it's amazing. There's over nine hundred comments. I think on it now. I have several so there was a big tornado. Outbreak in june of twenty seventeen raised here in weld county photogenic tornado. Out by grover right as new us the state line into carpenter this beautiful stovepipe tornado that was spinning out in a field and the the road i was driving on was covered with softball size. Hail while that will always stick in my head. Yeah the bomb cyclone in march of two thousand nineteen. That's what caused by page to go viral. In the first place i will never forget forecasting for that and seeing the the impacts of essentially what you would would could describe as an inland hurricane even. That's insane which yeah. I mean colorado springs. I think it might have been fort carson that set the state record for the highest non thunderstorm wind gust east of really the ninety five miles an hour while it's category two hurricane. That's insane put it like that. That is yes and insane. Yeah and then of course. I'll never forget that. Cameron peak smoke plume. Right came over agree that was insane last year mandated walkout and all of a sudden. You know you'd be driving home and it looked like they were snowfall and literally. Yeah there's ash falling. It took a year to get the smell. The smell of burning pine outta my car The the sky glowed a bright orange and red depending on the time of the day. Or crickets chirping. At one o'clock in the afternoon right it was an insane so pretty much anything extreme. Anything extreme dummy like this week is going to be a boring weak for you probably yeah. Let's let's get a pacman coupla somewhere else probably going to be not very member. Dancing did look exactly like it did. I will give you that. I saw that night show called like mother. Nature just gave me a bone and was like hey look at this share that like. Oh my god. That's that's all denver front range weather. He'll stick with us here for the headline that caught our make.

I surprised him. Gotta be kidding. no it's wally. The walrus has been spotted again. You can see him here. He got behind big hours. The famous mammal has not quite Has got quite a battery mutation recently for sinking boats but from the look at these photos. He's getting his sea legs now. Because there's a picture of him literally. It looks like he is like checking for jet skiers. We would hop in for right of wally was sailing ship. I would not now but nobody knows for sure. How wally Made the arduous journey from the arctic to the shores of britain and ireland. However many are speculating that an iceberg. He was resting on floated away any found himself in unfamiliar waters so now instead of crawling up on on these ice caps right instead of getting up on icebergs it can vote. He's seeking votes. And it's been a wrecking havoc. He's sankt two boats already. He weighs around two thousand pounds. He can cause boats He wrestled capsize or damage damaged their fragile instruments. He has sunk at least two so far. But now here's the million dollar question. Cody you walk out. While he's on your boat what do you do. Fade them feed him. Yep yep it's either that or he's a heresy hunter you know. He's just like steering these boats around for lawbreakers. Maybe that's exactly what it was. Just try it. Reuven is residents of saint. Mary's bought him a pontoon. Unbelievable which you could use as a cd sofa instead which he did with He did grace with his presence for a bit but then he moved on again. It wasn't to his liking so we got a by wally nicer. Pontoon now talk to your insurance agent right. 'cause the does a fat walrus sinking. Your boat is that covered just misunderstood. He wants to watch sunday football with the boys. I guess there's there's a ton of i mean he just. He's literally sleeping on these boats. He looks like me after one. Too many drinks.

July 12 Hour 2 Dalton Risner, Denver Broncos Offensive Lineman Calls In | Zac Stevens of DNVR Broncos on QB Speculation

"Five minutes after the hour will command to the auto collusion special studios. I am taylor swift filling in for brady whole who is on remote On location i should say down in wiggins colorado For the riser. They don't rise in her. Camp were Should be talking with dalton. Reisner coming up in about fifteen minutes or so Ahead of that next camp session. That's going on down there Some of those high school kids to get a chance to talk with dalton. Pick his brain a little bit and you love doing that. And it's you know it's unique you got colorado guy Able to go back to his hometown and do that Joining me now up. On the hotline it is zak stevens with the vr Covering the denver broncos zack. How are you today. My friend dan around doing great. Thanks for having me on -absolutely. Thanks for coming on here. i. I'll do invest brady whole impression today for you okay. Let's let's do it all right man. Well hey i want to start first with with some off the field news that i saw you were Tweeting and talking about earlier today. You know you seen with these. A lot of these sports figures that are talking about the vaccine and getting the vaccine. I always wondered. What is the rest of the team doing. And what percent of these teams in a of these organizations are getting the vaccine your reporting that the broncos are nearing one hundred percent vaccination. That right yeah. They're above ninety five percent as a team right now which is just huge Because those guys we'll be fully vaccinated by the time training camp rolls around so really. I mean the threshold that that teams need in order to have relaxed restrictions around the building. It's eighty five percents and the broncos will have cleared that easily by the time training camp rolls around some other teams. It's going to put a burden on and for individual players that don't get the vaccine. It's going to put a burden as well. And maybe once training camp comes around for the few holdouts that are there with the broncos maybe that will force them to do it but this could be a big advantage for the broncos from other teams if other teams really don't hit that eighty five percent threshold by the time training camp in the season rolls around. So why are the broncos so for ahead of the curve. They've done a great job just educating their players about it and then also they held in event a couple of months ago to vaccinate people inside their own building so i know that a lot of employees within the building got a couple of broncos players went there and the team just on a really good job letting them know. Okay look if you're vaccinated. You don't have to wear a mask. You don't have to social distance here. Are all the benefits that you get and the nfl is making it the so. There are so many benefits to getting the vaccine when you're in the building It's even when you're outside of the building. Players who aren't vaccinated are not allowed to gather in groups of three or bigger outside of the facility if they're not vaccinated if they are vaccinated they can hang out with their friends. Yeah it's something it's an interesting watch. This goes along right. Because we're we're seeing. This conversation happened. Outside of professional sports. Talking about the vaccine and people making the decision to get vaccinated or not to get vaccinated but it opens up a whole new can of worms when you talk about people who are getting paid that much money who are at the highest level of their profession. And you know there's there hasn't been many people who have come out and said that they're not going to get cole beasley. Obviously was the one state alone the city. I'm not getting it. And i mean that's a personal choice but like you said i think it does help quite a bit. The fact that You know the broncos are going to have those have those That advantage of having everybody vaccinated. Yeah exactly and we won't know exactly who is and who isn't vaccinated unless the players come out and tell us if they're vaccinated or not but with the way protocols are vaccinated person and player is exposed to someone with gobert. Well they don't have to sit out. They don't have to be away from the facility for fourteen. Ten days like that if an unvaccinated person is exposed to that then they will have to be out so we will find out you know not just with the broncos but around the nfl who is who is back name throughout the season you. You just hope that you know it. It can be a twenty twenty thing not at twenty twenty one thing and that's what the vaccine helps with. Not what the. Nfl is really really trying to get across and really making a huge difference for players. That are aren't vaccinated. Yeah he really is and it's been i. It's just fascinating but enough of that zack. Let let's talk us some actual football here. you know. we're sitting here on july twelfth. I was just saying in any way shape or form. You cut this quarterback battle with the state of the denver broncos without having their quarterback right. Now it's not an ideal position yeah it. it's not an ideal position. Not knowing who your quarterback is going to be. I mean even putting aaron rodgers aside not knowing who your quarterback is going to be entering training camp. It does go back to the. If you have two quarterbacks you don't have any that we've kind of found out the past few years with the broncos. They've had multiple quarterback battles over the past couple years and and none of them have worked out long-term. You want a guy to be your guy at the quarterback position. And and that's why. Tanner advocate that. The broncos make this decision as quick as they know. Now don't rush the process but once you know that teddy's really ahead of drew and he's not gonna look back or through has really taken that next step and he needs to be the guy named him. The starter then. If it's four days into training camp do it then don't wait till the end of the third preseason game now if you have to wait because it really is fifty fifty all throughout training camp. Then you do that. But it doesn't just help the quarterback position it helps you up in supply. The helps your wide receivers. It helps your coaches build a play. A build a Offensive system for them. That's what the broncos need. Do they need to settling on one guy. As soon as they can but from every indication i've heard is this thing is gonna go probably until the third preseason game and that's a tough pill to swallow but here's my thing look i if you're going to hang your hat on this broncos defense which for all intents and purposes. It looks like you can absolutely do that then. Why not just make teddy the guy. Because he's he's the safe bet here he's been the guy that maybe doesn't push the ball. He doesn't turn the ball over. Why not just roll with that and let your team rally around the guy and give drew lock. You know year to keep keep working on stuff. Yeah that would be it. That would be purely a move for this year because we kind of know who teddy bridgewater is as a player. And that's not necessarily a bad thing. You can steady the ship. he can. He can lead a team to the playoffs with a really good defense and a good running game which the broncos should have both but put drew lock on the bench this year. I think that means you're done with him and that you would be looking in a different direction from a quarterback after this season specifically you would be moving on from drew after this year. If drew doesn't play this year than his future with the broncos his over since he would have been benched from being a starter last year. So i think that's something that vic fangio was going to want though is the steady guy and that's why if drew can prove that he is steady. Knock going to turn the ball over like he did last year. Then they'll be open to him but if he just proves training camp and preseason that he is turnover prone then they're gonna go with teddy because he's steady and that's exactly what vick need for this year as he shows that he should be the head coach next year. Yeah he's zach. We're we're running up here in this first segment. Can we do this man can.

I mean this goes so far with kids from all over not just not just wiggins but eastern colorado northern colorado all over the place man. Talk to me about this camp. Yeah man well you know. It's our first annual really big camp down here me and my father and our family has been doing football camps down here and wiggins for a long time but i got drafted you know. We took the first year as a rookie and not really do anything too. Big and cope with it. So this is the first time we've ever been able for me really did do a camping wiggins colorado partner with foundation and with our wiggins football team. And open it up to everybody I'm a big believer. That you have a a nonprofit foundation to give back to other people and one of my biggest emphasis in my life is to make sure you use my platform for football to do good and do right by others and make an actual impact in life. And that's why we had the camp down here. we opened up to the whole state of colorado shoot. We have people from vail people from kansas. I think someone from tampa bay came down. I mean we've had great numbers all day today the autograph line. I just got through about two hours long. So it's been absolutely tremendous. It's been tree every kids. Get a free t shirt. chris nutrition sponsors so there's cookies and bro protein bars body armor sponsor. The drinks teach you barbecue there in denver down in lone tree they sponsored lunch so it's been phenomenal man. It's been a blessing for sure. Yeah that's awesome. And i'm sure for you. I mean it keeps you in touch with your roots. Subbiah now back out there on on the highschool field and probably a lot of familiar faces There in wiggins. Yeah you know when you get to this point in your career you know you have a couple choices as to what kind of career you wanna make out of it you know. I love being a football player. Playing for the denver broncos. I want to be remembered for the access service. I did off the field and the way that i use my platform really impact other people so i mean that that's what it's all about being back here and my roots. It's my second camp. I really done this summer. The first one. I partner with a precious child up in denver Being down here today like you said man i. It's been back here and wiggins where the dream started for me as a kid. You know this is a lot of blood sweat and tears that i'm sitting on my lawn chair in the shade right now. You know they might not have been like this the whole time back there when i was a kid. There was a lot of work on this field to get to where i'm at today. So the impact here a bill to get back to this community The people back. It means everything. Talking with denver broncos offensive lineman dalton riser and You know dalton. So i heard you got about. Is it three modules to live by that right. Yeah man three months just to live by. You know i had the i i do. Fifth graders here this morning. So i could care less if we thought of one thing about football i wanted to come and have a good time and smile and get a free t shirt and get to chat with the denver. Bronco get an autograph a denver bronco. And that's what it was all about. You know of course. I you guys know me. I'm always going to have to get a little bit of vice. You know i talked about kindness. I talked about work ethic. And i've talked about getting good grades and taking care of your schoolwork i feel like for the degrade age group. That was doing this morning if those are three things that needs to be here. Yeah well i. it's awesome man. I mean that's that's what sets it up. I right and then that work on the football field will follow that. You mentioned your dad a little bit earlier. Dalton brady was told me you your dad is absolutely yoked. Is that right yeah. He's a pretty big guy. Man you don't wanna get to head too much. But he's he's definitely looking good he's been working but Who wins a wrestling match their. Let me check if he's around. Sir yeah right. I think that's more ban smart so the camp on this afternoon. What is a couple of things i mean. Obviously the life advice you can really relate to these kids right because you you played on the same field that you're you're practicing on right now. That a lot of these same guys are gonna be planned under those friday night lights. What are a couple of things that you want these kids to take away from from the chance to meet you and be at your camp today man. I want them to remember that. Whenever you do good in life you can always give back you. Don't have to be like some of the guys. Nowadays with all the glory to themselves you give the glory to someone else you can give gory up to You can be a good person you can be in the spotlight and you can still be a good person and get back to other people I want to remind them what's really important. You know at this point in their lives as we all know. Sometimes you think sports are everything you think your little high school is everything as you continue to go up. You realize that man The way i treat people the impacts that. I make the kindness that i have. That's the stuff that really lasts. That's the stuff that matters to find people So i just wanna make sure. I reiterate that show them the type of man. I am be a great role model for for the kids. And he's someone that you know they can look up to you because i would have killed them either. Denver bronco Whenever i was there yeah. There's no doubt you know. I grew up in kersey colorado. No saying earlier luck we had one. We have one guy right. We had one guy that made it to the nba. Jason smith and i still remember the exact camp when he came back. so what. you're doing awesome adult if you don't mind for a second we're on july twelfth year. What is your workout plan looking like. What are you doing around. Are you at the broncos facility now most days what's your offseason looking like man. Well you know. I've trained that the broncos facility year round off season. i stay here. I moved to dallas for a little bit this year. Trying to mix it up. But these last few weeks up in an lp orlando performance down there in san antonio area kinda rifai valley awfully. That's where i've been trying to get outside of the facility trying to stay away About to go to camp and we're about to be there every single day all day so trying to get a little break from that. But i'm working out every day man making sure i'm folks on what i'm eating and getting ready for training camp because you know that's when the war starts so really excited for your three. You can't tell you how much i know i need to prove. Can't tell you how much i know. The broncos need to prove to bronco country. This states pretty cool state when you're winning football games but when you're not winning football games a lot of people expect hey. We wouldn't want it any other way. We love how the fan base expect so much out of us. And i just think all the talk needs to stop when you go out there and be about it. Let's go out there and play football. Let's go win some football games and that starts with myself looking Myself in the mirror. you know. that's where it all starts. I think if all of us can do that on the team will be just those pretty cool. What i've really enjoyed about This year at least in the off season is there hasn't been really any talk about well. The broncos got to upgrade their offense of line because that that core group man talk to me about the relationships and and what a big stride especially on that left side with you and gear bulls last year. That was phenomenal to watch. Yes sir you know when it comes the offensive line. I think that we made a lot of strides. They have a lot of work to do this year. Continue working well with lloyd cushenberry and garrett bowles on both sides of glasgow's going to bobby massie and calvin anderson cam fleming. You're going to have a big battle right tackle. We'll see who comes out on top of that. I'm into the day. Like i told you i don't care how much talk there is or how much there is about who had a good season last year. Who's supposed to do really good this year. A shop to train and countless kick some tale. Let's put five guys together that are separate individuals and make them form a fist. And it'd be a heck of wine that's got there and be about it man so i love my fellow officer. Lineman love the guys on the team. I think that we can do some really special things. You can't get out of this interview without one quarterback question. I apologize dalton. How difficult is that you guys later. Okay yeah yeah. I see your dad coming up. I see how it is looking. How difficult i don't i don't need your. I don't need you to come out here. Say you know. I'm all buying this guy. I'm all behind. I just walk me through as an offensive line unit. Or you know you can only talk for yourself. But how difficult is it. When you've got different guys split and wraps you know. They're barking different signals that carry themselves differently. How challenging is that for you. And how is the team responding to that man. I it's one of those things that you have different quarterbacks. You know you're going to have different quarterbacks and get paid a lot of money to be professional football player. You're going to have a quarterback that says the kanaan's different one of the quarterbacks gonna roll out of his his snap the next guy's gonna say different play in the huddle it just a different way. One of them might be more of a leader. One of them might be more than more cautious. I mean even goes on and on so part of our job is offensive. Lineman just get used to those things that you'd mentioned every quarterbacks is going to be different teddy drew a very much different right now but they all they both bring different things to the tape man. Like i'm proud of both. They can both be great quarterbacks for us and you have known. I supported you all along. I think he could be very successful for us if we could just give him some time. This league is created has been created. This league that you're expected performed day one love. These guys are very young and they need some time to transform and if we can give them the time to do that i think we can be really successful I i was thrown in there as immediately after i was drafted and expected to play a high level. You know. sometimes you're expected to do things and we all gotta be up for that challenge. So i think that whoever's our quarterback this year is going to be great for us man. I think i'm going into the season expecting have numerous quarterbacks this season because injury happens cope. It happened last year. I mean you never know. It's always a great thing for the line alignment to be prepared to play with any guy. That's why training camp otas minicamp. It's so important to get used to those guys and what they do right. Don't get any way too early season predictions for us on. How the broncos are going to finish this here. I just want to start out three. You know man. I look at the first three games of the season two on the road. One back at home. I think those three are all winnable. Football games Like i mentioned earlier. That's a lot of talk. let's talk. Let's go out there and just play some dang football. That's win at one game at a time and one practice at a time so to be honest with you right now. worried about day one of camp. And then i'm gonna talk sunday to cam. I'm sure i'll find myself in week. One and then. I'm sure we'll be talking again. It'll be about week seventeen and that's hope we're talking about playoff picture. My man. I love it so much dalton real quick before i let you go. Whoa tell tell people that.

What they're doing down there Thanks to bear insurance for allowing this to happen brandon. And steve down there in wiggins They were the ones able to hook us up with all this so thanks to bear insurance For for making this possible. I'll tell you what we're going to get out early here zak stevens is going to rejoin us. I apologize if he's listening to actually going to rejoin us Were we were. I wasn't done talking with zach so we're gonna come back but we had to get dealt on there. That was the only time he could do it. So i tell you what let's Let's get a look at the local sports flash. What's happening in your own backyard. Listen to noko now with tanner's swint a northern colorado's voice thirteen ten. Kfi kelly lyle with the fort collins colorado and your csu insider on the whole show on thirteen ten ks k. For thirty two time bad. It's been a crazy crazy day That was great. Talking with dalton. Reisner there he great dude man he just a he gets it right and thanks again bear insurance for for helping us out hooking that up i want to get back to. Dvr broncos insider zak stevens. Zach i apologize about that man. It's been a fly by the seat of your pay us type of day here. No worries at all. I know those days come often. They they really do but Zack were where we left off. We were talking about That that quarterback battle right and he said you know if drew lock doesn't start and play this year maybe not star but if he doesn't play this year the majority of it the broncos are done with that So what does that mean because it seems like. There's a real possibility. Does that mean. The broncos are looking for a quarterback in the next draft. Yeah they very well could be and you know in in less petty brings them to the playoffs and vic stays around and they wanna go with that one more time then they will but i. I really see teddy kind of just being a year by year guide. Not the answer just from what we've seen from him so far unless somehow he comes out and shows that he's the teddy bridgewater through to touch or nine touchdowns in five games with the saints went five and the saints but for the most part we've seen teddy be very You know league average quarterback and is not that for the team this year but is that a guy that you want to sign up to a four year hundred million dollar contract. After this year. I would advise against that personally. I'm okay with paying elite money to elite players. Were i think you get really stuck in putting bad positions as when you pay league money to good players or you pay great money to average player so i would advise against that and i would look at what the buffalo bills did when they had tyrod. Taylor take them to the playoffs a couple of years ago they said. Thank you tyrod for getting us to this next step. We're going to go use a first round. Pick on josh allen. I think that's probably the route. The broncos should take if in fact it is teddy this year and they do well now. Obviously if it's steady this year and they don't do well then absolutely you have to think that they're finally again in the first round quarterback conversation. I can't help but think. And i and i get. There's so many variables and we consider play the. What if game tiller faces. Turn blue but you start thinking you look back at the pick that they made in the first round this year justin fields was sitting right there and and if you say okay teddy gets one year. And maybe they'd get back to that. Spot would have been great to have justin field sitting there in the waiting. It certainly would have especially since you don't have to. You didn't have to give up anything extra to go. Get him cocco bears. They gave up an extra first round. Pick in order to move up to get justin feels. The broncos wouldn't have had to do that sitting there and the fact is going to be able to talk about the broncos quarterback position. You're not gonna be able to talk about patrick's tan career if just field succeeds in chicago. You're not gonna be able to talk about any of these guys. Be in success if justin field succeeds just because of what the positional value means at quarterback as opposed to cornerback so in a way where the broncos got the safest player and there is in the draft and patrick's or ten. It was actually a pretty risky. Pick by passing on a quarterback who can or from what everything i was told leading up to the draft and draft. They really did like just didn't feel so. It's really risky to pass on a quarterback. You really like especially when you don't have your quarterback already necessarily visit kind of make you think back to the bradley chubb pick with josh allen sitting right there absolutely it has to look the broncos had case keenum on a two year deal that really a one year deal as we saw it very much played out as a one year deal. It doesn't mean that guy that you draft that year has to start and play but you gotta have a plan at place at quarterback and at that time. The broncos were hopeful that case keenum was going to end up being the guy. But they didn't know you know with patrick. Mahomes you know with what. The broncos quarterback situation is right now. You don't know you absolutely don't know until you get a quarterback it really doesn't matter you can have a great defensive. Broncos had many great defenses the past couple of years and it doesn't mean anything because they haven't had the quarterback position in that still. I mean that's still obviously the biggest question mark and let's okay. Let's let's talk about iran. He's out there doing the match golfing and people tom. Brady's crack jokes saying i'm scouting the the of the green bay packers i think right. Where does that situation stay. This has been one of the weirdest quarterback controversies. That hasn't been a even controversy in. Yeah you're exactly right. This is This is very much in a waiting process and aired made that very clear over the weekend he said i'm just enjoying this week. And then i'm gonna get back into a working out and then we'll decide on that and a couple of weeks from now. This is something that is not going to happen this week. Not something that's going to happen next week. It's not even something that's going to happen by the time. Training camp rolls around. The first big date is if aaron rodgers shows up aaron rodgers shows up. It's probably with a new contract and that means that he's going to be a green bay packer at least for this year. If he shows up it probably means that. He's a green bay packer this year but if he doesn't show up then that's where the controversy starts tanner. And how long does it take for the green bay packers to either tell him. Look buddy. we're not trading. You come here or you can retire and pay us twenty nine million dollars or they could say all right fine we get it. You're really not gonna show up. We'll trade you. This is something that's going to go well into training camp if not the preseason or the regular season if he's not there the first day camp so it was going to ask with every passing day. Does that help or hurt the broncos chances of getting rogers but it sounds like to you. It doesn't do anything until the the training camp. Yeah everyday that he's not reporting to green bay and not in the packers building. That is good news now. Obviously these next two weeks. It doesn't really matter. He's not because no players in the facility right now Unless they're rehabbing so right now. It really doesn't matter and i don't expect any news to come out. I don't expect aaron rodgers to come out and say i demand trade before training camp. I really expected to his actions to be much louder than his words. In this. we're talking. Vaccines are broncos insider with. Dnv are and. That's where all eyes are gonna be fixated on that right now with every little move here there. People are watching this. What does your gut tell you. Tell you that at the at the opening day who is taking that first snap from under center for the denver broncos man right now. It's fifty fifty all lean toward aaron rodgers. Being that guy for the broncos and the reason is he is he. Aaron rodgers seems very content with where he's at right now and with where he's at right. Now it is that he is not want to be a green bay and it would just not make any sense for the green bay packers to force him to retire instead of get a massive hall and return for him and so i believe that they will end up trading him before the season and i believe does the broncos are very much the front runners to land him. If he is available. I think if he's available The odds of the broncos getting him go way up this just. The question is green. Bay gonna come to terms with trading him. And that's so. I think the broncos are absolutely the number. One team wow. I think that you just made a lot of broncos fans happy so so for your money right now you out of the three quarterbacks bridgewater lock and rogers. You're you're putting your money on. Rogers being the quarterback for the broncos on day one man safety and a half percent for that yeah and then you know what i get the nazi teti overdue right now. Okay all right so so maybe this is one we stay away from. We don't want any money on this bet for right now. I wanna give exactly yeah. Let's talk first day at camp and then we'll know soon we're right in this little period right before training camp. Where we're getting geared up. I think people are excited for football to be back. What are some things that you're watching coming out of broncos camp coming coming out of the broncos organization. I should say that kind of have your attention right now. Oh gets these position battles entering training camp. And that's really where the is are going to be of course quarterback what's going on there. That's obviously the number one story but then these other battles cornerback is probably the next biggest battle that i'm curious. Because you have patrick's attend the ninth overall. Pick the guy. They drafted over justin fields in this draft. He's not going to be the fourth cornerback this year. He's going to be a major player in this defense. But who does he replace. Every other guy on the team is pretty much a ten million dollar cornerback. He's not going to replace bryce callahan and bryce callahan be. Is he replacing ronald darby. Who is the guy that has the biggest contract of all cornerbacks. Or is he replacing vic fangio's darling and in kyle fuller. It's going to be very interesting to see how that goes and then back on the offensive side of the ball. You got devante williams. And melvin gordon. What a battle that is now. That's something we're both guys can play and both guys will play. But just how good does your bontate look as a rookie. Will he be able to overtake. Melvin before the start of the season does that happen during the season or developing really proved that he's pro running back and hold off the rookie all year. It probably honestly wouldn't hurt. Melvin anyways if they did just take fifty fifty reps with this league. We know how quickly people get beat up especially at that running back position. So wouldn't that be kind of a win win if they go around that fifty fifty slot. Yeah that's one thing that devante williams said after the broncos drafted him they. We asked him You know. are you going to be okay with sharing the workload. And he said. I've been sure on the workload my entire time at unc and not helped me so much. I was really impressed with his answer. Just very mature for a rookie right now. But you're one hundred percent right. This is going to be a split backfield. But that's probably best for both guys. If both guys are still getting ten plus touches a game keeps them fresh and helps their average from you know. Potentially a four four yards per carry closer to five yards per carry. You'll look melvin gordon. Last year at the end of the season last seven games. Averaging over five yards per carry last year in college devante was averaging over seven yards per carry obviously the. Nfl is going to be a lot more difficult. But if those guys are both right around five yards per carry then neither of them is going to be. You know going significantly over a thousand yards but both of them can combine for one of the best backfields in the nfl which is going to really help. Whatever quarterback is the starter. I was gonna say they get that type of production that could be. You hated the ball off back there exactly and especially if these weapons the other weapons if receiver You know turn out to be who we think they are. All the quarterbacks going to have to do is get them. The ball and those guys will make plays that was. That was the next question that i was going to pose. Great the the broncos offensive line Look they're they're not the topic of conversation anymore and that's a great thing because we used to say you know that was the big thing going in there. Well it doesn't matter who's a quarterback he can't get any time it starting with the progression of garrett bowles look we just got done talking with dalton riser. Cushenberry all these guys. They're starting to take those steps and as a unit looked much improved last year. Where do you think you know. Where's the most need on that offensive line who needs to take another step this year where we won't even have to talk about the big as well. The guys that we've been talking about a year after year after year is at right tackle. And that is still a concern for the broncos because right now they have four guys competing for the spot. I mean we talked about earlier dinner. If you have two guys completing probably don't have what's it mean if you have four guys competing for the spot it means you're in trouble and the bronco did go out and spend about eight million dollars. I'm a couple of guys bobby. Massie and cameron fleming And but cameron fleming last year. His best ability was availability. he was there and You know it kinda thought there. He had a rough season when he was playing. And bobby massey. He's good when he plays with the past two seasons he's only played about fifty percent of the time so bobby massie projects to the starter. But if he's not there you have some major question. Marks calvin anderson may take that next. Step where you're going to have to see him taking next step. He's never been counted on as being the full time starter. So that is still just a huge question for the broncos right tackle everything else you pretty much know. You're gonna have quinn. Minors pushing lloyd cushenberry for that center spot. But i expect lloyd to continue to keep that job at least at the beginning of this year and then everything else is said. You got dalton at left guard garrett bowles at left tackle and of course graham glasgow at right guard but right tackle just remains a huge question for broncos zak stevens at the in vr. Joining zach. I saw this question. I want to pose to you. What is what's more important in today's nfl. An elite offense of line group not just an elite offense of lima but the entire offense of line or an elite wide receiver core. Which would you take. I would take the lead offensive line. Because you're you're talking about a group if they really. They make the running backs better. They make the quarterback better they make the wide receivers better whereas oh well and the wide receiving group does help. Your team really helped your quarterback but they don't help that much in the run game now you can have blockers but that doesn't help that much. You take the offensive line. And most importantly because i think that helps the quarterback more than he elite receivers and like we said it. All comes back to the quarterback. You do whatever you need to do to improve the quarterback position. I think any lead offensive line helps more. Would you classify the broncos receivers as an elite corps or would you say they've got the possibility to be receiving corps. They really should be but they're not there yet. Just with jerry jeudy. We need to see him. Take that next step. Which i completely believe he's going to take this year he's going to be a thousand dollars or there's questions and sutton coming off the injury. I think he's going to be okay but we need to see And then also k. J. hamler may be the guy that takes this group from borderline elite to vary elite. He's able to stay healthy and be that huge play threat out there for them. No love at zak stevens. Dvr zach what he working on what he got your eyes on this week on looking at Some projections guys. I'm diving into some cornerbacks. This week seeing what. Patrick tans should do would ronald darby should do and i'll have those up on the dnb r. dot com. Did you see real quick before. I let you go. Did you see a von miller button and the and the softball game that he took place in yesterday. Yes i did. Oh man. I guess i guess you do whatever you need to get on base right. I don't think that's supposed to happen. Slow pitch softball so excited to have gone back. A part of denver broncos and denver. Sports so zac appreciate your time. Thank you so much for sticking with us absolutely. Thanks for having me on tenor zak stevens with. Dnv are broncos. Appreciate his time as always for joining us and you know. He stepped aside and came back with him. But a lot of the the most intriguing part of this. And i think that mean you have to. I mean i saw colefax back there. Light up when he said that he would put his early on money for aaron rodgers to be taken the first snap in the regular season for the denver broncos colfax lit up back there man. Well i thought he was going to say you know. I'm fifty percent on locker bridgewater. Yeah he did not go there. At roger half percent chance fifty point five percent chance. It's aaron rodgers. And that i mean look that for me is enough to until aaron rodgers is wearing a green bay uniform or he is back in his suit on jeopardy. There's a chance. And i'm all for it because that's the move you make. I hope they get it done but I i think if aaron rodgers do the broncos make the playoffs if aaron rodgers is the quarterback. They go undefeated undefeated nobody. Nobody's within ten right now. They're blowing everybody everybody out ever all the way super bowl if he's not never right. You sound like my quebec here. But i like it. I like it one day at the time. Let's take a break. We'll come back to the side. Wrap up the whole show. I'm brady phil or not brady bill affiliate for brady whole i'm peter schwartz. We'll be back on the other side. It's the whole show pair by pbc energy northern colorado voice thirteen ten kfi this to the hall's show powered by the energy and thirteen ten kfi k. Brady will be back after the break. The power trip weekdays. Eleven thirteen ten. Kfi k miles bloom heart sports editor at the fort collins colorado in and you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten. Kfi it up the whole show on a monday. I m tanner schwendt colefax back behind. That glass gotta love technical difficulty. Man technology is great when it works but when it does into tell you what So brady hall and our intern. Angel padilla or headed back from wiggins But it was great They were down there and Santa couple of pictures of that camp that they had going on and Able to talk with dalton riser. And get that out there. That was a great interview. So all of that The on demand on thirteen ten. Kfi dot com. As soon as we sign off you'll be able to go back and check all of that out As well as our interview with zak. Stevens who said right now. He's putting his money on. Aaron rodgers being the Quarterback but this is i mean. Look i kind of feel like we're we're kind of like the ugly kid right now at the school. Dance and You know we're just shooting are shot there. There's a drop dead ten out there and we're you know we're salt six but we got some things. Maybe we're a little too short little too junkie but we're going to go up and we're gonna shoot are shot. And she's like not saying no but she's not saying yes either so just giving us just enough hope to keep us trailing along dragged along. Maybe we could get that dance and that's all we need. We need the hope that we could possibly get that dance with aaron rodgers at some point because i think that the denver broncos become an immediate threat immediate threat. Not just in the afc west because really. That's you've got to get through i. I don't think tampa bay will be able to run it back quite like they did last year but then again i didn't think we're were gonna be able to go Tom was going to be able to put it all together last year. Like that. but i don't think tampa bay will will have the same amount of success in really. I think i think buffalo. I don't know. I don't know they've got a couple of pieces that we'll see if they they filled but really other than kansas city in in buffalo. It's clearly going to continue to take another step. Is lamar jackson baltimore. Are they going to be able to figure it out. Not while you've got a running back playing quarterback with lamar jackson tennessee indianapolis. Those are some names here especially after julio. Aj braunau in tennessee. Those are just a couple of teams to keep your eyes on but you throw aaron rodgers in denver it if that defense performs like it should on paper. I think that. I think to this team becomes an immediate threat to win it. Not just the division to win the super bowl. I know it's crazy. But aaron rodgers fr from where he's at compared to drew lock and teddy bridgewater. I mean that difference alone with the other pieces. They've got on. That team is enough to push their. It's enough to push you there but you gotta get aaron rodgers. I That'll about do it for us. Coming up it'll be. The herd.

B.I.G. Interview | Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports on Barton Contract, Suns/Bucks, and Lillard Trade Rumors

"Everybody this is dalton. Reisner two thousand. Nineteen draft prospect out of wiggins colorado and. You're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten ks. Kfc twenty one minutes after the hour. Welcome back to the show. This is the whole show powered by cdc energy from the article in specialist studios with me now on our first events hotline. Chris dempsey of altitude. Tv chris before we get into we'll barton and enoug- situation loved her haiti. You gotta give the suns fans some credit. They're becoming famous every single game. It seems like there's there's always a suns fan. That's making a name for himself doing the most out there. Aren't they count his money out there. I mean they're they're just like they're working together. They're trying to get famous not necessarily a great way but they're making it happen. Yeah i tell you what they'll if the team goes down Everybody knew minutes of fame as over on the sons and fair magic goes away. Counting goes away. And chris doesn't does it. Feel like milwaukee can close this thing out in milwaukee tomorrow night. Well they can. Yeah i mean this is a they've slowly but surely i think two things Two things in the same category much better over the course of the series and that is not turn the ball over and force more turnovers and the team. That really has done this. The better in each game has found themselves on the on the right side of victory. The win loss Column in and so. What we've seen from the milwaukee bucks. Just i mean they are turning phoenix over and they're just cashing those in in a big way. And and what that allows milwaukee to do is to play in open court scene there. Fast-break points have gone up way up as well over the last three games. Because they're getting life ball. Turnovers that getting out into the open court. They're not lean against a set phoenix. Defense you know phoenix point of the better defensive team one of the best defensive teams in the nba. If you are going to just play five on five against them all night long then that's gonna be You're gonna be in your head into a wall at some point and so You know how can you not play against that defense in a set way You know most of the night and so The milwaukee bucks have been much better At getting out getting turnovers catching does turnovers in and conversely they've also just done a lot better job at not turning the ball over themselves and and allowing phoenix cashing those turnovers. So this is how this this is looked in the last three games now. The milwaukee bucks have averaged nineteen points per game off turnovers of phoenix turnovers. In the first to which they lost they were only getting thirteen points. Per game. Off of those turnovers and for phoenix. They have an al averaged They have now Allowed fifteen and a half points off turnovers. Excuse me they got fifteen in appoint half points off turnovers in the in the first two and have only gotten ten point six in the last three games and so You know you see what that category means to Both of these teams that have been so defensive forward and then obviously on top of that jrue holiday found his offensive. Touch their chris. Paul has not had a fantastic series. All those percentages are really high overall. I'm but he hasn't had that same kind of impact. When you look at this series i mean. How much do you think the nuggets are watching this. The front office is watching this saying okay. These this is the team that knocked us out. that's phoenix. We always hear that in sports. You want to try to plan to beat the team that knocked you out. They are they looking at. What milwaukee's doing are they thinking. Man we gotta find a piece that we talked a little bit last week about jrue holiday and a guy like that's not on the floor for the nuggets for the most part. So do the nuggets. Look at this and say man. If we can find a guy that can just turn a switch on defensively and shutdown. Whoever's really bothering us that that could really help us. Go go even further next season. I mean maybe probably to a certain extent you know. I think probably more so than even that. I think the front office is just going man if we had some all murray on the court and we'd have a lot better you know this situation and so You know i think for phoenix. Listen this is. This is the one team that they have played. That it's been healthy. The entire time you know. And and the has had their star players them impact for every game this series and so now they're losing three games to two And you know i. It's it's you know i. I wanted to be clear. We had discussed before i mean. Phoenix is clearly a top-flight basketball team. And you never wanna take anything away from them but they're also very fortunate basketball team to not have to play. Anthony davis for half a series of more than that. It's jamal murray at all. It's not to play qui- leonard For the most part. So you're you're talking about a A team that missed you know you know with fortunate with with the players that did not have to face them in their series and they took full advantage of that and they got to this point. Well magliana sling and not as not only is he playing but he dominating and You know they have no answer for that. Obviously and the back court. Or cancelling each other out so You know it's it's been a big deal but if you're the nuggets i think you just look at this and just go man. I wish we had our our our full team healthy because we have had a fighting chance against the phoenix suns. And quite frankly. I think if you're the lakers or the la clippers. You're probably thinking about the same thing now now. I know it's been a very strange playoffs. Especially on the western conference side of things kristaps joining us routes to tv looking into all things nba. Let's let's switch over to the nuggets will get to the wilburton situation. We we knew it was coming. You talk to us about that last week. We had a darned road feeling that this was coming. Now we're hearing your both sides very interested in getting a deal done chris. What kind of money are we talking about. What kind of contract do you think we're talking about if he stays in denver. Well that's a really good question. And the reason why that's a good question is because i mean he was slated to make what fourteen million dollars this year and i can't boy i i can't imagine that they are gonna go fourteen million per year over the next three or four years so but we'll barton gonna want something in that neighborhood. I'm sure so that you know the question is is what what what does that number. Look like for For the nuggets. Because you know they are also having a balance the fact that they are. You know there's more than just we'll excuse me we'll barton there has to be paid Let's see here some kind of going through Obviously michael porter. Juniors is Is a contract that everybody expects to get done in the kick in probably the following season you know jim michael green a looks like he's in the last year she's contract aaron gordon so i don't know i mean i i suppose they could if they wanted to. If you i think what you. If if if you're watching this situation you would have to say okay if the nuggets are going to go twelve to fourteen million per year for barton for the next three or four years and you can fairly well assume that you know probably aaron. Gordon wouldn't be back certainly not at a sixteen million number after next season You know what will happen with to michael green. You know the money for the will burn. Contract has to come from somewhere else and and so if they do that then some of these high dollar players that are that are that are left You know one or two of them might not be here or there's going to be a drastic pay cut and what they're going to be able to earn with the nuggets so You know. I think that. That's how i view this i. I can't see them going very hard. But if they did that just means. They're going to have to trim from other areas on the roster and what you would hope that if you're the nuggets which you would hope in that category is that you get. I mean if you're if you're bringing in veterans that they're playing on one or two contracts for the veteran minimum. I'm and then you just hope that some players on rookie scale contracts are going to be significant parts of your team because those are going to be the most inexpensive contracts on your books and you're going to need that surrounded by office jamal murray. Who's got twenty nine thirty one thirty three and thirty six coming up. nicole yoga. She's got thirty one and thirty three coming up and then a supermax. after that. And then. Michael porter juniors max contract which is going to be probably in the mid twenties for the foreseeable future so You have those contracts coming up for kuno. Composite is going to be on the last year of his deal as we'll as well so you know there's a lot of financial stuff that has come up and so if you're gonna commit to wheel barton and you're gonna have to shave somewhere else if you don't commit to barton the name he won't be on the roster depending on what. The market looks for elsewhere. That's what just so interesting about this because like you said if you go if you go must much pass twenty two twenty three into into a three year contract and yeah you are overlapping. Some pretty big contract decisions in porter. We know that that's more than likely going to get done. The one that i i look at it in wonder is aaron gordon because i guess the question becomes if it if you have to come kind of somehow in a year to have to pick between the two who do you one and if barton just goes two years okay maybe they can work But i think they've really like aaron gordon too. I know the playoffs weren't all that amazing gordon but overall i think they're happy with his fit and i assume that's only gonna get better. Yeah especially when when you have all your guys when when joe-marie is out there and we'll barton and mike puerto nicole colossally when they're all out there together. It makes a lot of sense and aaron. Gordon is a really difference making peace out there and so yeah you're right. You know what happened after next season. And that's one of the reasons. Why the the the jamal. Marie injury was so devastating. Because it happened so late in the season only wasn't going to lose this season but you're gonna lose a big chunk of next season. And what is the team like when he's coming when he comes back while he'd be the same when he comes back or will you need a lot more time. We need to take into the following season to get back into the jamal. Murray form that we know and love. And if that's the case in that is going to be after aaron gourds contract expires and amino what's his value to the team at that point versus what is going to be on the open market How much have you committed to to michael porter jr. you know what are you doing with players like z. Nagishi and Pj does or and marcus howard and then whatever. What have you done in the draft to to Also supplement your your roster and maybe also another veteran or too so. Yeah i mean it becomes. It's it's a lot icier. And and you know with aaron gordon You know he. He went from eighteen. Six fifteen million is what he's gonna be making next year so it's It's a big number and and You know what we know is that you know with with the scholar capital luxury tax. The way it is. I mean you can't have a roster that's gonna have five players in really big number in double digit numbers. I mean that's just not going to be a thing so you know it. It'll aaron gordon. If we'll come back and they are paying him that much then. I would assume that that would be Detrimental to aaron gordon being here long term chris joining us from altitude. Tv chris feel free to shut me down on this one. But there's the speculation right about damian. Lillard where he's going to go now he's one out. Is there anyway and again. No comment whatever but would the nuggets even be a player in the situation because i know lillard shared like a nice picture of him in joker and i can't remember the message on instagram. It was cryptic But it didn't have nuggets fans talking and again nuggets fans putting out all these ultimate monster trade scenarios to get damian lillard. Yeah i don't they would go there To be honest with you. I think they're pretty happy with your mama. I really do and also You know so. Then that would be mixed messages from damian lillard. You also came out and said very publicly that he didn't ask for trade no You know it's Mixed message cpa. So it makes messages are no doubt about that but I you know. I i'd be pretty surprised to be honest with you if they Were to try to move on from joe-marie at this point in time They have so much invested in him and I've they truly believe that that they are a contending team with him. there And then obviously doing damian lillard you know it's a league where also where when the big names start to come up we are you know teams fan base. It start to get excited. I mean i. You talked about him. In the picture with joker and i've seen doctored up pictures of him in laker's uniform and the doctor picture of a dixie uniform and the doctor you know and so all these fan bases everywhere are so very excited and dreaming big when it comes to any little of information about these star players and so i guess i guess. Fandom is no different But i would expect that they would not be Anywhere really quite frankly near a sweepstakes for if that was going to be even a thing which i probably see this portland doesn't want to get rid of you know so if you know chauncey billups just got there. He didn't take that job to not coach. Damian lillard though. I mean that's You know i it's. It's you know that that's happening on the flip side as well so you know portland is to do all they can to hold onto them. I'm sure and if he he's saying publicly right now that he hasn't asked for trade. And i i just think we'll just take him at his word right now until You know maybe something happens during the regular season to change everybody's mind But yeah i i i i would. I would expect the he'd be in portland. I would expect it and just wouldn't be in any kind of sweepstakes for for him and and You know we'll see you know the next few months weeks months Can change things. But that's how. I read the situation right now. It's crazy. how one week and it sounds like. Oh he's wanting again the next week. They'll maybe not folks around like that quickly up. Chris what are the chances are a win. Win would be the realistic timelines. Just if you had to spit ball. Four jamal murray because so much of what. The nuggets are going to again regular season. They're gonna they're gonna have to just figure it out in the regular season for the most part. But i mean is it fair to think marches. It is fair to all right around that all star break is kind of the timeline. You're looking at. It's a really good question You know i. I this this matter. I'm not even sure. I mean you're talking about if you just look at other. Acl's i guess you're talking about what nine nine to twelve months. Yeah so if if you fall within a nine so nine months frame would be. What's the brewery. So i mean are like late january february eleven twelve february march april. Yes it'd be something like late january early so query. That'd be the nine months and obviously the full year would be back into april but So i mean. I guess anything in there would be fair game. You know once wants to calendar terms to february and you you know if if he's been making progress and you know we've been seeing all this stuff even even toward the end of the nuggets season in the playoffs. I mean we saw him go from like what bracing socked in crutches to you know kinda limping around with none of that to taking shots and warm ups you know and the we we we saw him for about for a few weeks really looked like he improved a whole lot You know in just a short period of time but You know that nobody knows what's happening right now. That really hasn't obviously been publicized in any kind of way. But if you're just looking at the general timeline for acl's for other players it seems to always be nine to twelve months and if that's the case then you're talking about february to You know early february all on april. That'd be that'd be the range for him to be back and then as you said there's always the coming back process to getting him back on the floor rapid fire for here. Paul millsap austin rivers those guys back with the nuggets next year. Well you know what's what's the contract look like zero. I mean would it make more sense for austin rivers at this point too because of the joe-marie situation yes yes I would say so and You know without you know having Haven't done the deep dive into all the other. Free agents like shooting kind of players out there You know if it's a if it's a big market of them then maybe not get kind kind of look around and explore and see what they want. They obviously liked what they saw from from From austin rivers You know the the money obviously matters the years be figured him on a one or two year you'll Then maybe do it for for single digits a single digit millions of dollars If you if you're really i if you're sold on what he brought to you not only just on the corporate off the court and he seemed to be awesome off the court and in the locker room for that basketball team. That's everything that they ever said in his interviews with the media. Really good so we'll see about that Paul millsap Question good question. I think his his Feature with the nuggets is probably a little bit more up in the air Because they can always start. Michael green at the four. If they wanna do that and then you still have guys ignasi whatever they wanna do and the draft as well so You know those contracts are You know a lot cheaper than even a one year deal for. I mean he just made a million dollars on one deal this year. You can reduce that by kind of a lot. If it's a younger player. Mike grain We'll be going into the last year of his contract You know so You know that they're they are not in any probably any kind of pressure to to bring back. Paul millsap if they don't wanna do that And then in regards to javale mcgee see him back you know i mean to really really make him a a significant part of that second unit and i think one thing that we've really seen in these places if you can have a a really a guy who can really put pressure on the rim collapsed. Defenses it can open things up for you from your three point line and i think for the nuggets. They're gonna need that Especially with jamal. Murray you don't have a ton of really only have one guy that dutchmen's double team by himself and that's joker But when he's off the court how can how can you bend the defense how can you kinda distort a defense and make them Get into rotation on a regular basis where you can do that. If you have a player like mcgee who can Who's a threat. Who can finish around the ram and some. Now you're drawing in that weak side low defender now starting to things up in the corner and then you can pass around and put a defensive location so you know and i'm sure he'd be amenable for sure for a you know to to. He's been on one year contracts for the three seasons. I believe so. I think it just seems signing a one year deal would be well within reason for for both parties. Now he's a. He's a multi championship player and olympian. So you've gotta got a player that you know. Even early on mike malone really saying is praising in terms of what he was bringing to just as a vocal player in the locker room. And so you know if you can just get him you can get him on the court and really integrate them into that lineup. I just. I think you know he. He doesn't have to be a world beater. Always gotta do is blocked shots. Bef levick put some pressure on the rim on give that second unit a chance to really be dynamic And that's what you're looking for and so You know we'll see we'll see we'll see but obviously you know as we have gone over here man. There are a lot of roster and financial decisions to be made no question about. It's going to be very interesting. And then of course. We'll get to the draft to. Chris appreciate you as always my friend. We had you on thursday but wanted to get your fairly immediate reaction to the wilbert station so appreciate your own with. This is always my friend.

July 13- Hour 1 Rocky Mtn High Home Run Derby | Drew Creasman of DNVR Rockies On Site

"After the twelve o'clock hour good afternoon northern colorado. We are live from the auto collision specialist studios back in studio. I told you man. I'm not supposed to be outside. Look what happens to them. I'm sunburn yet again. Love that summer crazy about hot weather. It's fantastic Nice pasty gentleman myself fares. Pretty well in the in the sunlight. It's not fun for me. 'cause we live at the dalton reisner youth football camp yesterday had some technical difficulties but we made it work You've been out to wiggins. I think i've been through it. It's like small man heine tiny town really tiny town. Great people though one of my friends from high school. We use like a rival school. We played against them all the time and walks up behind me. He's the assistant principal and the athlete director out there wiggins and like what i haven't talked to you like fifteen years. So that was a cool way to have a reintroduction so to speak but it was a free camp so all these kiddos are going nuts out there having a great time. These little guys running around we. We wanted to talk to dalton. In the twelve o'clock hour he signed autographs for like an hour and a half straight. Just straight for all these kids wanting this one autograph. He's such a cool guy. Man way down to earth. He is about life not just football but life. Great guy so of course. Tanner got a chat with him yesterday. Asked him about the quarterback question. Dalton did you. Did you read between the lines there. Or did he do a good job and he did a good job being a politician and not giving you an answer answers about drew lock. Teddy bridgewater pretty sealed up or or your. I heard you guys on the way home. I'm like call facts. Don't let tanner do this to you or our guys out. I don't know man. Zack steve. You're gonna get your heart broken. He knows something. We don't know probably won't. Does anybody know something we don't know yes. I mean a lot of people do but all you're doing colfax is you're you're setting yourself up to hurt again man. I've packed ice around my heart and not even my sunburn can melt that rodgers not happening. I'm just trying to set you up. So you're not gonna be brokenhearted in about a month. Well how brokenhearted will you be if he is. And then you're the not eating data happening colfax and it's a digital world. We can go back and delete these segments. We can disappear that. I ever said anything on the contrary so i don't see it happening but in other news. Did you watch the home. Run derby last night. Did you watch highlights. Oh my gosh. It was actually pretty fun even for me. I like i'm kind of the guy that's like you've seen one home run. You've seen them. All and i will tell you they were. They were going at it. They were absolutely going at it. Yesterday was so much fun. Atanas amazing and i wanna talk about what stephen a smith said a little bit later on my goodness crazy. But when you're looking at what otani is doing and the fact that he's going to be starting on the mound and at bat. I mean it's fantastic. The two way star starting on the mound and a bat leadoff for the american league. That's fun Steven basically says hey the. Mlb won't take to the sky. He won't be like a great baffler. Great star whatever. He said quote the fact that you got a foreign player. That doesn't speak english. Believe it or not. I think contributes to harming the game to some degree when. That's your box office appeal. What like what. I mean i. That's not even a thought. All i could think about was everytime tony hit the ball gigantic smile on his face even when he didn't hit a home run. He's like oh same expression every time awesome. No there's no question he's great. He's great for the game of baseball. That's it end of story. I don't even wanna waste much breath on stephen. These take guys. Like i have takes all right. They're real takes though. Mike rogers not coming to right number. But that's not like these guys. Just sit in bed at night and think of. How can i say something. That's borderline offensive and be famous for it or not even borderline offensive like just wrong so far fetched this. Why do we we are in this society of just so far fetched you know. I've said things like nicola. Yokich is already the best nugget of all time. And i've had writers that i respect. Come at me and say you're not mr hot guy. Stop with that dude. We have too much respect for not a hot take. He's the best nugget of all time. No question about it. But what. I these guys stephen. As these nick rights they. They live for this and they're only as good as their last hot take and they have to come out with it and they don't worry about feelings at all it's it's it's It's absurd it's ridiculous. i mean. should he lose his job for saying something like that. Probably mean prowling but we're going to keep their standards of how you determine how you fire people. Yeah it's it's a. It was a frustrating too. I'm like what what are you saying. Here p lonzo is ridiculous. Homerun champ he said it. I think i'm the best power hitter on the planet. I tend to agree. Six wins it and now it's five. That will win it. Another massive shot from alonzo four to win it like a countdown free to win it to to win it. He's not missing one more win. It as alonzo comes out of a time out. Walks it off. What a finish alonzo defends his title. Twenty twenty one derby champion put the built on again. What h man look easy. Didn't he. I mean it just look. I'm watching otani and you can see he's getting tired. A lot of guys aren't used to hit non. Stop like that in this altitude. Which is why we thought trevor story. Who broke the record for a second for the distance. I knew that was going to happen. Could have told you that they should do here every year by the way. Just do the home run derby here juice them up and let's go man juiced the ball up juicy hitter's up i don't care just launch home runs left and right. It's fantastic trevor. Story was pretty cool to this was a this was also a great. I'm glad i recorded it. Because i missed it. Live had to go back but this was a pretty fantastic moment as well. And that's a big fly there from story which may get the bonus. That's five eighty dollars five eighteen. We are about to see some really big time last year. It was great but also very depressing knowing that he's probably done being iraqi pretty soon. Are the rockies going to go through with this. We're gonna talk to drew craftsman iraqis insider from dnv are rockies at the bottom of the hour. We'll get to it. I mean it was. It's tough watching trevor story. He's out there hogging up on nolan. And if you're out there's tough nolan sitting down with spill you know they're doing their broadcast all admit. I was pretty numb to it when they played in the whole cheer. Crowds cheering was kind of emotional. But it didn't bug me not much. Hey kind of bugged me. Cnn like just walking around the derby and hugging up on story. And you know this is a great moment for the rockies but it's also shedding this very negative dark light that our stud are real stud in nolan. Gone are other stud is about to be gone. So we're going to get to that we're gonna get to what the rockies did in the draft perhaps the most like blah draft ever. I mean they got you know. Montgomery take that all right cool. Whatever but they passed up. They passed up on rocker. The pitcher who did get drafted by the rockies a few years back but decided instead to okay never mind. I'm going to go back to school so some people are like. Why would you draft him. He didn't wanna play for you in the first place. You let that stop i. Actually i kind of would. He doesn't want to be here but they they passed on him. They go with montgomery slugger. I you tell me i. I have no idea how that works. The baseball draft. We always say drafts are a crapshoot. The baseball draft's the biggest crapshoot. Dude kovacs we're going to be all be in my forties by the time we realize if this guy is any good the that's where we'll be so i- last drew what he thinks. I'm sure he'll give some great insight their first advantage text line nine seven four seven eight thirteen o one nine seven four seven eight thirteen one. We're also going to have the rams stud our guy. I think he's listening. So we're shouting out ellison hubbard's gonna he's gonna stop by today he's gonna stop by wants to get into the media world after he's done playing but first things first this guy is they're gonna this defensive line for c. issue. I mean they could be one of the top in the country. Not just the mountain west conference so we're to talk to ellison who is one of the key contributors to that defensive line. I'm sure at some point we gotta it. i'm listening. I gotta ask him this question though. So i'm reading and i want to talk about this facts. That are you big yoga guy. Have you ever done yoga. I've done yoga. You like it It's relaxing i get into it. I think probably should do it. Because i i can't stretch at all. I'm terrible at stretching. What kind of stuff do you do. Do you know the names of any of it like a dog camel and yeah no. We'll see issues basketball team coach medved and company. They like do they get. I don't know if it's before practice or after practice. They shut the lights down. They have a yoga instructor who is coach For oakland is like a sister. I think and they. She like instructs yoga and they just kind of relaxed and it's also football side. Do you guys doing that. You guys i i. I laughed. Because i i think it's awesome but i've never seen it done like that. I think it's a great exercise. I think it's a great tool. Well we did that. When i was in the marching band at love and high school together did yoga. Yeah well it was after practice like we before and after practice like a cool down same type of deal. And i don't know really did kind of help your mental state to like unwind and feel one with your with your group there. Maybe we should start to your thing. We start doing that. And we just getting a circle get everybody here. Get an instructor in here and away we go. Let's do were a little bit. Hey anything. I need to clear my head i do. I got a lot of stuff going on up there and so it would be a good idea to do that overall. So okay yeah so. You're like a deal. This is neat. Yeah my bro hard. Who's on vacation. My goodness we're gonna try came later in the week about the article. He he put together at cs. You rams dot com. So we'll get into that bro. Hearts great guy. He loves colfax by the way anytime.

Actually it's everybody. Mike is my bro-. Yeah my bro bro. Heart sorry my. That's i respect that. Actually i do that. that's fantastic. It's top text tuesday by the way where we signed. Floyd little jersey to give away. We've got let me check the what's what's the what's the scoreboard. Here i one two three gets the gets the signed jersey. It's framed things to fresco painter. South platte we got from they got it from a no limit collectibles in loveland weld county. Swamy has to. He's one of these. Dixon is one two and we started four weeks ago. So it's those guys going toe to toe back and forth. And i'm telling you it's going to go to one of those guys today or are you guys going to step up welcoming kenny swami. He's never want or has he. Won one of these. Did he went. He might want dixon's one to you. Guys are gonna really let him be the three three-time he's the arch nemesis of the show. He's a terrible human being actually not terrible human being but he's you know you get what i'm saying you know i don't trust him at all. I mean we have your own little theme song and you have your own evil theme song if you have an evil theme song. I don't think a lot of people are walking around going dixon. the chief's fan he's a chief's fan for crying out loud and you're letting them win all this bronco stuff. I hate to see what he's actually doing with it and we'll there's no rules against who can win it and we don't have any cap. Its greatness if you're great texting. I'll give you this. He's he's the best texture on the show. There's no doubt about it. He's the best texter pizzas. I finally have answers to many of the unknown questions with colfax being in the band. Yoga yoga's female dominated sport. Were men get embarrassed. Is that true. Probably for the most part been aren't as flexible sport though. I think it's just a sport on things. I know can competitions. I bet they probably do. I bet whoever construct like who's the most stretchy. I mean hotdog eating is technically sport. Colefax so i would imagine yoga's kind of sport absolutely. Yeah chris stephen a. Did his job got you riled and using valuable airtime for stupidity otherwise we could break down chiefs offensive. Ono eastside. Chris you have gone over to the dark side and he continues to stay there. Otherwise very deep there. That's does not sound like them but they're very slim and is it really well and it must smoke a little bit. It'd been smoking smoking. It happens. I suppose it is top text tuesday and are you guys going to let dickson. Walk away with this thing. That's my challenge to the whole against today. Are you going to let dickson walk away with number three and make him in uncharted waters. Nobody's ever want to dare. I say nobody's ever even come close to winning. Three except for the arch nemesis of the show. A lot to get to today all right jokers the mvp. I wanted to talk about this. But he's not the best basketball player what. Sp's had a few things to say about that. Do you watch the espy's anymore. Is anybody into that. We'll get into some of that team. Usa gregg popovich is not happy. We're gonna coming. Why would you be happy. But he's not happy for weird reasons so we'll get to that team. Usa we should be a little bit worried. We'll have drew craftsman on. And yes colorado. State rams stud ellison hubbard gonna join us a little bit later on the show the whole show powered by energy. We're live from the article specialist studios. Don't go anywhere we'll be right back. You're listening to the hall's show powered by pd energy. Thirteen ten kfi brady will be back after the break. What's happening in your own. Backyard listened to noko now with tanner's swint a northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. south former colorado buffaloes quarterback. And you're listening to the whole show on thirteen ten ks k. A. point four minutes after the hour. Welcome back to the shelf. relied on. The article is specialist studios shout out to tilted barrel. This is in your neck of the woods old neck of the woods. Colfax you were a loveland the guy and telling you man we gotta get out to tilted barrel. My new spot. It's there's tv's like lining the wall around so you can sit at the bar to watch the games or you can sit around. That's the problem. I don't always like to sit at the bar so to be in the bar. Whatever wearing watch sports but in this place. There's tv's everywhere so you're never too far away from whatever the game is i was watching the rockies the other day so tilted barrel. They've got fantastic food. Best beers in the area local beers they support local breweries and i had the wings. Dude they i'll put them up against b-dubs any day of the week no doubt taller. Oh my goodness wow we're go try the wings you're gonna look at me and go. Wow you were right again just like you were about the aaron rodgers thing a remains to be seen. Did you hear peyton manning on the nfl network clip. He said his gut tells you tells him that. Aaron rodgers is not coming to denver. Because he's going to. I'm coming back in you. just don't feel it man. I have no sources. I'm not one of those guys. I don't have anything that tells me like. Okay this is going to tap. I just enough. Time has passed and he. He didn't opt out so he wants to play. He desperately wants to play Green bay's holding all the cards. And i just they want. They still want him. So is it a money ploy. Is it just a way to make bank even more than normal. We'll see i really don't know what's going on. Rogers is there a little part of you though. And i know you wanna see rogers here but is there a little part of you. That's a little annoyed with how he's handled this whole thing. I don't care. I'll man rogers to do anything and he could. We could run his car into this building right now. And you'd still be like an wasn't his faults happened before it has actually. We gotta get to this. The big story of the day panic button abras benton by fm s. Bank banking made simple team. Usa falls to oh two in the olympic exhibition games after losing to australia. I mean these are teams that over the years like they the nigeria to they've handled these teams pretty darn well over the years and in fact team. Usa usually rolls right on through most of their games until you know until they get close and then then they start getting some interesting games. They lost to nigeria on saturday. Coach gregg popovich reporter basically asks him and is like hey are you worried. I mean you teams that you used to just beat up on. I'm summarizing used to beat up on their beating you in these exhibition games. Well here's gregg popovich as wonderfully polite response. Let me let me also answer. Their questions asked the same sort of question the same family of question last time. No were you assume things that are not true. When you just mentioned you know low in these teams never happened so i don't know where you get that. Can i finish finish. Can i finish my statement. True your average. You're gonna let me finish my statement or not so. You'll be quiet now while i talk and then i'll listen to you The reporters basically say your average margin of victory was like of against these teams and against a lot of teams in the teens. The high teens. I think even if you beat a team by ten plus doesn't that mean you beat them pretty the end of the day. I mean yes. Ten point games can be pretty close if you're thirteen fourteen. Fifteen point game. Yeah you're covering spreads see beat him easily. Popovich doesn't wanna hear that all right. I i get it. He's he's mad he's upset. He's frustrated but he's not handling the right way. The reporter was kinda right. He was right. These teams that used to beat. Up was at tanner was talking about on no cone our earlier they beat nigeria two thousand twelve by like fifty something. It was a lot team. Usa he's never had these issues before. I mean so yeah. I don't know i'm not. I've told you this before though. I can't imagine these players though. Like i'm looking at damian lillard right back in a basketball uniform playing. That's gotta be exhausting. You have this long season. Which by the way lebron saying. Hey these guys are tired. We started to soon. Tell that to kevin durant had some time off the injury but damian lillard right back at it. The some of these guys just play basketball year round. They never stop and like i'm one of those guys. If you decided not to play for your perspective team your country i. i'm not gonna fault you for it. You play year round. You play eighty two games. You play in the playoffs. A lot of stressful series. Take a few months off serbia. They were like upset. That joker wasn't gonna play. I for team serbia. He's exhausted the lot of basketball back and forth. Speaking of the joker steph curry. We kinda got to this yesterday. I don't know how much you actually heard colefax. But the espy's is giving the they gave the best basketball player award two. Well here it is. The goes to steph curry. Not not joker. All right. I get it. Yeah hey the joker. He's not sexy. Doesn't do social media and all that jazz chris paul's not even in that mix. He's lighting it up in these playoffs. He's he's the mvp of the playoffs. I'll give you that. I'll give you. Chris paul steph. Curry's the best basketball player. According to this piece i mean he's great and he's been the best basketball player several years. Yes absolutely. there are several years. Where steph curry's been the best. He was really good this year. He was carrying a basketball team. But i'll say it again. The nuggets would be would be worse then. Golden state without joker. The nuggets would be I don't know man like twenty one team seriously. Yeah the whole teams revolt. It revolves around him. I still feel i. Golden state and when curry was out for a while they were still maintaining a spot in the play in game. I still think that denver would look at the sons. Did anybody think the sons were going to be in the playoffs this year. Let alone one of the top teams all season and final team. Probably gonna win the whole thing. Nobody did. But because chris paul has played maybe his best basketball. I still think devon booker pound for pound from game one of the regular season to now has been the best player but chris. Paul has been chauncey billips on steroids essentially and once the playoffs. He's been playing the best basketball of his career so the disrespect for joker is crazy to me. I'm getting used to it now. But and i'll listen. I don't want to the sp's who watches award shows anymore. They don't connect with the regular person. I mean we all watch superhero movies and you know matt damon movies. None of those movies ever win at the oscars the grammys. It's like but eighty percent of us watch that stuff we don't watch the you know the dramas that usually went same thing with espy's their award shows that are not voted on by the league's the only the only awards i will acknowledge is the league's awards if the nfl deems persons the mvp. Then that's the mvp so much as i'm ranting about it at the end of the day it's not going up there in a resume thirty two minutes after the hour. We'll jump out. We're gonna catch up with through crucible. We'll talk homerun derby we'll talk rockies draft all that and more but first. Let's get the latest on the local sports flash here mornings with gail weekdays. Six to nine and northern colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. Steep fairchild at fairchild qb training dot com. And you are listening to the whole show on thirteen ten. Kfi kfi trying to get hold of drew from the vr rocky. So we'll keep efforting that i talk to him about the other rockies draft pick first round specifically and i mean. I'm telling you if you think the nfl draft is a crap shoot then major league baseball. That's that's one i. I will never even pretend to tell you that many montgomery is going to be the next big thing. No way maybe drew has more insight drew. Follow a lot more outside of just the rockies too so we'll talk to drew if we can get a hold of him shout out to orthopedic and spine center of the rockies over forty one specialist providing care across six medical campuses fort. Collins loveland greeley longmont lafayette and westminster foot and ankle hand. Upper extremity pediatric orthopedics shoulders spine. Hip knee joint replacement sports medicine. Whatever you're hurting you've been thinking you've been putting it off for too long and you know maybe maybe. It's beyond the care of chiropractic. Care our friends for with rev chiropractic. Of course maybe it's beyond that because it can be talked our friends over at osceola orthopedic and spine center of the rockies. First advantage text line nine seven four seven eight thirteen one radke texting in. Will anybody today. Will anybody be sad when pop out of the league pop and lebron james two grades but can't wait till those personalities are gone. They both have kind of in as they grow as they go on and the nba. They kind of just have this attitude anytime you interview them. They just snippy. Pop has kind of been like that for awhile. T dixon is it. Is it just me or does even things like alonzo alonzo's interview. Yeah make you appreciate joker even more alonzo saying hey. I'm the best hitter in the game. I'm the best power hitter in the game. Does it make you appreciate joker even more. He's the best. There is phillies. The best power hitter in a game blah blah blah. Seems like every time we turn on the tv. There is some athlete telling us how great their listen. I don't really have a terrible problem with that as much because i liked unique personalities but it does make you kinda go while jokers really really unique. We do have drew kreutzmann with us now. Drew craftsman are rockies insider from from. Dnv iraq drew my friend. Always great to catch up with you. It's great to catch up with do gradients. It's blasting out here in the middle of everything i am in the thick of it. I'm at mcgregor square online. The middle of anyone watch the press conference that the main one was shohei otani and max scherzer managers and and all that yesterday. That is right where i am right now. I'm standing right in front of that stage and we've had a lot of texas texting in about some of been some want to know more about. Is it just something else down there and seeing the seeing this stuff on tv and all the camera angles is great but being there. I can't imagine my friend is amazing. It's it's absolutely wild brady. I cover the nfl ds pose in milwaukee and and in denver. And i thought you know okay. This is going to be bigger than that but it you know three four maybe five times. How naive a child. I was this. I've never seen so many people. There were seven thousand reporters on the field yesterday. I think i did a quick cow It's amazing it really is. It's cool but like i will also say it hasn't felt totally overwhelming. Sometimes these things can be a big mess. The vibes have been great out here. Everyone's having a good time. I think mcgregor square is handled. Everything it's needed to handle. Well they're doing a red carpet event right now. The american league allstars walking out and people are hollering and screaming good lord. Aaron judge is of a large band next glick in proximity right now. Yeah yeah what do you six foot. Hey let me just mosser's they look big on tv and then they're just like wife. It's amazing it's it's gotta be cool again. Seeing the atmosphere just via television last night for the derby was was absolutely regret taking. Oh yeah the derby that look. I'm biased because it's the only one i've been to and i was covering up pretty good speed but that was amazing. That was absolutely incredible. Everything from the the showcase. That pete alonso put on which just blew my mind to juan soto hitting a wall five hundred twenty feet his showdown with shohei ohtani the story of training and the way that he the crowd embraced him throughout the whole thing. i love to. Let's go rockies. Chant broke out. When trevor story came out. I thought that was really cool. The way race story the way they they blew up for knowing arnaldo coming out to give trevor story some water that was probably the biggest ovation of the fire night drew. That was what for some reason that hit me. More than nolan. And the crowd given him the ovation. If you a few weeks ago or a few days ago for some reason that moment really bothered me. Like i. I loved it and i was really sad at the same time you know. Why brady it's because they tell us all the time and we all know it's true they tell us you know sports business. They baseball has been every time it got gets traded. Leasing free agency whatever happens. They remind us we go. That's right and we treat it like that and we do that on our show. And i gotta do it on your time. But then those moments remind who like. That's just she's boy like that's like and that's all that was it's just like i'm your guy right now. I know we don't wear the same uniform anymore but tonight. That really doesn't matter. And it hurt in that moment when you realize like yeah they really had something special there they let it slip away from with marquez out there too and that that quick little reunion and you're just like man but it was a great moment. Yeah it really was and again. All this cool stuff was story. Launching it man. It was great is fantastic. But then there's that par that just it's like it's amazing. It's great to see it but is this the end. Are we in the end of times when it comes to trevor story and i know you and i chatted about it but i don't want to believe you drew. I do. But i. I understand why they would do it. But i don't wanna see another guy go. We love yeah. It's tough it's always really hard and then you have. That baseball business thing comes right back to you. Doesn't he is an expiring contract. Who's basically made it clear that he's not going to be staying here long term so as much is holding onto him to hold onto feels good for a little while. It really does cost you in the long run as much as you love. Trevor story you also want the rockies to be competitive again someday and they can better their chances to be competitive again someday by moving pretty quickly now after this all star thing. And i and i think they will and and of that band it off and then fully embracing the next generation and and they've gotta make some smart moves after that and go and sign some some guys in the offseason fans can get on board with and and really hype this You know next young group. That's coming up and hope. Kinds like mcmahon and rodgers and top. You have big second half to kinda take people's minds off it. The way trevor story broke out in twenty sixteen when people didn't know that was going to happen and everyone was really really sad about troy lewinsky and i'm never going to get over troy to lewinsky leaving and this team's never going anywhere and this whole thing got screwed up and then trevor story steps in. And he was the new sensation there will be a new one So enjoy these final moments including this homerun derby. It was a special moment for him and for baseball fans in call that. Yeah no question man. I mean it really is. You can feel it. It is a special thing i know. There's those fans still like the rockies organization. They don't deserve this. And all that but man it's i i. It's hard for me to buy into that at all because this is this is fantastic. This is what it's all about. Yeah and frankly. There's like fifteen organizations in baseball. You could make an argument. That haven't won the world series. Actually since the rockies have become a team that's true since nineteen ninety-three teams in baseball haven't won the world series and that's when you're including like the blue jays winning ninety three and the braves winning ninety five like it's been it's hard to get there man so i know you know people feel like the organizations being rewarded but it's not it's the city is being rewarded. The fans are being rewarded. The vast majority of the money by the way for anyone wandering for tickets and merchandise and even concessions goes to major league baseball. Dick mom not making a whole lot of money off of this. The surrounding businesses and lodo are making a ton of money off of this and fans knew great well cultured baseball fans who can force dick monfort. Whoever owns the team next are being born and being educated and being given now a lifetime full of memories right here where i'm standing in our state. We're gonna grow up to be much better baseball. Fan and demand to see excellence out of the colorado rockies in the future. that's all very important. This has been an extraordinary week. No no question about it and excited to see what the rest of the week has in store for us. And i'm excited to see the rockies back into it to winning that first roadsters only took out the season to the exact halfway. But i mean we're pumped. What lost in the shuffle is the draft drew. And who better to talk to us about these guys like. I can't tell you like. I'll be in my forties before we know we know uncovered is good or not but the controversy of course around. Oh they didn't take rocker well. We know the history there What did you think of the first draft. Pick the first at number eight for the rockies. Yeah any montgomery is a really interesting choice. I you know. There's there's people that want. I think the only problem people don't really have any montgomery and smart. Why did they take house. Why did they take rocker. And i get those kinds of things. But i've been preaching forever at the colorado rockies if they're going to embrace playing of course feel the need to build their team around this unique environment and they've never had that super athletic outfielder all across that super athlete. And a lotta times. Those guys in centerfield can't really hit much. You know billy. Hamilton is kind of the poster child for that. And so they're looking for somebody you know. I talked to the people who really know scouting in my area and the people who who've watched these guys so it's going to be the best defensive centerfield iraq had the question is just going to be able to hit enough to even get there and it's a project at eighteen you know. Is it going to help the team anytime soon. No but should he be arriving right around the same time zack. Venus who's also a super athlete stealing all these bases. And so you've got all these speed demons who are also six-foot-five with a little bit of pomp. Running around in your outfield. For five years. From now i think that may be the best solution to the core skill problem. That's never been attempted. So this is a weird way of going about doing it rather than just signing a free agent who could do it now. But i don't you know growing 'em i don't mind that at all and i think the kids got a chance to be star. It sounds like there was some sign ability with rocker. Maybe just wasn't gonna go to the rockies or he wasn't gonna go for the price that they had at that spot they were going to really have to overpay them and they ended up with jd hill with their second pick. Who is somebody. A bunch of people told me was going to go one one overall until he got hurt and so the rockies ended up with somebody that my most trusted scouting person told me was their second best pitcher in the entire draft after lighter and the rockies got him with their number two pitch so that said. I don't worry about the missing out with pitching number one if they really did get this superstar athlete who might be one of the better solutions to the courts problem now. We're solving some problems. Yeah well you'd be the best one at talk about a true. We're up against it here. I wanna i wanna catch up with you more next week to once we get back into the regular season talk about the future management position of course with the rockies going last week to get into that i want to get into more of the draft and get your grades and again i think the draft really shows people like you guys like you study it way beyond years before they drafted so i look forward to catch you next week my friend.

September 27th: James Kitfield HR 1

"This is with kale in northern. Colorado's voice thirteen ten kfi k. Proud standing tall broncos country celebrating this morning. Yeah we certainly are ready for this This as the broncos absolutely rushed the jets no surprise there in their home opener. twenty six zip To improve to three and oh for the first time in five years. So we're you're at the game. Did you soak in all the excitement. I'll tell you what were off to. A great start question is can. We maintain that momentum. You tell me this morning. Drop us a text on our new text line numbers and that is triple eight. Five three zero zero zero forty three. But are the broncos as our own mica kilpatrick. The most consistent diehard bronco fan. I have ever known as he often says. Are they going to go. The distance could be six. Oh eight now. Northern colorado's voice one of three one. Thirteen ten kfi k. Mornings with gail via the auto collision specialists studios. Yeah denver actually did dominate. The new york jets. Were you surprised. I wasn't surprised that they won. But i was surprised that it was a total annihilation of the jets. Twenty six two zero again during its home opener at empower field. At mile high their share the enthusiasm and the excitement. It was absolutely electric but This puts them at three. You know for the first time since two thousand sixteen you talked about a longtime coming. It marked through read. Double digit wins to open twenty twenty one rights. Kyle newman and the denver post this Following road wins over the giants and the jaguars who liked the jets. Also pretty much winless broncos in control from start to finish in front of rollicking rock in crowd of seventy one thousand nine hundred and eighty five offense controlling the football while the defense limited new york to just over one hundred measly yards now. Judging by their play on sunday the broncos appear ready for the scheduled to get a little bit more competitive. Yes does make me the mistress of understatement. Starting with yet another home game against baltimore next week. However as you're well aware the broncos victory did not come without a cost as three broncos starters were knocked out of the game due to injury you had wideout caja hamblur exiting in the second quarter due to a knee injury offensive lineman graham cow again. A knee injury and dealt reisner Suffered a foot injury leaving in the third quarter but the shutout was the twentieth in broncos history and the first since beating tennessee in two thousand nineteen but now comes the meat of the competition. The tough stuff the hard stuff. Oh yes and the also challenging stuff week. Four baltimore again comes to town week. Five broncos traveled to pittsburgh. Well in pittsburgh got a little something something to do to prove after suffering two home losses there at one and two week six. Las vegas three and oh and cleveland for week. Seven to one so again boy. I'll tell you what it's going to be time to get into the grind for the broncos. I three games yeah. I won't say they were walking apart but yeah they pretty much were. So you've got the broncos and the raiders tied for the division lead followed by the la chargers to one and kansas city at one and two but why are the denver broncos. Suddenly the nfl's most surprising perhaps from team well. I turned to a piece out of yahoo. Sports of all places buying shalit's mazza young saying that. Yeah denver and ms young's opinion the most surprising of the nfl's five undefeated teams coming into the regular season as they did with well if you listen to the sports writers which we all take with a grain of sight of salts no offense to our ever intrepid crew of sports writers but the broncos did come into the season with rather low expectations som- if you've been following long even expected vic fangio to be the first to lose his job this season and how did they count out. How did they rational. How do they justify that. Well some saying that was certainly a logical choice. Since denver was twelve and twenty over fangio's first two seasons and the broncos defense last year fangio's bread and butter was. Well pretty lacklustre some say terrible allowing nearly twenty nine points per game now failing a massive collapse don't wanna jing said not only does vic fangio's jobs seem pretty secure and pretty safe. Well there is a pretty good chance that the broncos ooh i don't want to jinx it but i don't have the power to do that are postseason bound for the first time since way back in two thousand fifteen season. They won the super bowl. But how high is that chance. Here's where it gets kind of interesting. According to pro football references stat heads. Seventy four point eight percent. Now you may ask. How do they come up with that number. Well from one thousand nine hundred ninety through twenty twenty one hundred and fifty five teens started their respective seasons three and zip one. Sixteen of those teams made the playoffs. There were two teams who won just two games. The rest of the way after three wins. Start but let's focus in on the positive shall we. What do you say. So we're yet game and What your takeaways. And how much emphasis. How much importance do you put. I mean again. It was a fairly easy started season. But how how competent argued that. The broncos can go all the way this year. Drop me a text on our thirteen ten k. a. Ted sign that new number. Triple eight five. Three zero zero zero forty three hugging in on six fifteen now northern colorado's voice one three one thirteen ten kfi k. This time checks sponsored by candlelight.

Prep sports is one zero three point one hundred thirteen ten kfi. Well we're all basking an christine broncos record going three and oh with yesterday's victory over the jets twenty six zero. Oh my goodness. Did you happen to see justin tucker the ravens justin tucker making a name for himself by doing the impossible with a record setting sixty six yard field goal. Yeah you heard correctly a sixty six yard field goal on the final play of the game with the detroit. Lions six twenty two now northern colorado's voice one zero three one thirteen ten kfi k. A morning sagale from the auto collisions specialist studios. Yeah there were three measly seconds left the play and it looked like the detroit lions. Were going to absolutely shocked. The baltimore ravens but then enter. Justin tucker. It was the final play of the game that the ravens kicker broke the nfl record for the longest field goal by hitting that sixty six yard that made it through the uprights by about two teeny tiny centimeters. Well and i kick was pretty. I was pretty fitting way to end a fairly dramatic game because the kick gave the heavily favored ravens in one thousand. Nine hundred seventeen win now. Actually the kick did he hit off the crossbar and after that happened seriously. Check this out. Look at the video because it's absolutely incredible. It wasn't abundantly clear to people watching the game on tv if the field goal had made it or or not you had to officials standing in the end zone. They kind of looked at each other with quizzical looks on their faces for a few seconds before clearing the kick good which of course needless to say set off a wild celebration on baltimore's sideline now that sixty six yard kick broke the previous. Nfl record according to a piece by john breach that had been held by matt. Prater the current cardinals. Kicker hit his record-setting sixty four yard field goal. By playing for the broncos. Yes back in twenty thirteen braider tucker are now the only two kickers in nfl history with a field goal of sixty four yards or more tucker's kick marked just the state twenty second time in history that a team has attempted a field goal of sixty six yards or more before sunday. Nfl kickers had combined to go zero for twenty one on the previous attempts but the game winning field goal from tucker was his fourth of the game and he was pretty warmed up right before hitting from sixty six he also hit from thirty to thirty nine and fifty it also marked the second time in his career tucker has hit a field goal of sixty or more yards to beat the lions back in two thousand thirteen playing for the broncos yes old don't this was back in two thousand thirteen when he hit that sixty one yard kick on the final play of the game to give the ravens. Excuse me an eighteen to sixteen win over detroit. But i'll tell you what that was really really something to see six twenty five now northern colorado's voice one of three one thirteen ten kfi k. And speaking of all things sports well companion piece here. No surprise as a sports betting is bringing in millions more than expected for colorado water projects. Now since colorado launched legalize sports betting and may twenty twenty. The state has collected nearly five times more money for water projects than anticipated. Start of the nfl season provided yet. Another welcome financial bump with about forty four million dollars in bets during its first weekend this according to daniel hartman director of the state's division of gaming worked firm piece by conrad swenson of the post. Hartland said football is going full bore. It was a big open for us. it really is. The biggest market for sports betting now money collected from gambling proceeds goes toward work meant to conserve water protect natural habitats improve infrastructure and a host of other projects as well this according to lauren breeze deputy director of the colorado water conservation board and more money equals funding new projects under the colorado water plan at a time when colorado river was abroad. A downstream czar. Pretty darn low now hartman said his office earmarked about eight million bucks from sports betting for the plan which sets priorities through twenty fifty four projects to include Agriculture conservation land use engagement and the innovation environment and recreation and water storage and supply The colorado water conservation board in case. You're wondering doles out the money and re said it tries to fund projects that check more than one single solitary box like work with colorado springs utilities that brings water from the eagle river basin to colorado springs and rura which she said opened up quite a bit of fish and boating habitat now. Before voters legalized sports. Betting reset her department was warning grants with whatever money officials found in their quote. Her words cal st- couch cushions now. At the onset legislative analysts protected gambling could bring in between nine point seven million to eleven point two million dollars in its first year this according to revenue department spokesperson susanne career. But shortly after voters agreed to legalize the practice state officials cut their estimates for twenty twenty twenty twenty one to between one point. Five million and one point seven million. This in part because casinos weren't willing to pay one hundred twenty five thousand dollars every other year to host sports betting even when the pandemic shutdown leagues for few months gamblers flocked to sports betting made easy throughout serve the three billion dollars in bets from may twenty twenty two july thirty first twenty twenty one translates into nine point. Four million dollars in state revenue. He said hartman did people found a new way to watch and enjoy sports while they were at home and not actually in the stadiums now colorado had four online businesses. Taking twenty twenty casinos by the way were closed in two thousand twenty one compare and contrast there are now twenty five online operators air quotes and seventeen see knows in the towns of cripple creek central city and black hawk. Now rees said board chant. Give out any of this windfall until next summer.

Oh this time though. Perhaps not in public. Yeah so much for kinder gentler taliban six forty now northern colorado's voice one. Oh three one. Thirteen ten kfi k. A. mornings with gail from the auto collision specialists studios and as the taliban and isis. Al qaeda are merge victorious. Do medal of honor recipients. Believe it was all worth it. James kid field is author of a great new book in the company of heroes. The inspiring stories of medal of honor recipients from america's longest wars in afghanistan and iraq. By the way. Mr kit fields articles have appeared in numerous national publications. He's also the only three time winner of the prestigious. Gerald r ford award for distinguished reporting on national defense most recently for his first hand reporting on the afghanistan war james. Welcome to the show good to be with you. I appreciate you have me on. And i appreciate your taking the time. What are your takeaways from. Our rather clunky botched chaotic withdrawal from afghanistan. That was that was the worst case scenario. I mean we For anyone who served over there In expended you know blood sweat and tears and lost comrades. It's just a gut punch to she. The taliban sweet backing behind us That that is absolutely a worst case. Scenario and in books will be written about why it went so badly. I i have some ideas but Like i said it's a lot of reporting needs to be done about how we did not anticipate that there was at least a contingency possibility that this the bull would fall very quickly and then what to do about it then and though he claims otherwise it seems though the president was for warned that that downfall would happen much more quickly than anyone seemed to anticipate in the administration. Unless i'm mistaken there. And i would be interested in your thoughts Giving your far reaching knowledge base about america's longest war well The intelligence community was saying one two three years when the decision was made to pull all troops out in the military commanders afghanistan. We're saying could go a lot faster than that but they thought it not only possible but likely that the afghan security would fold. They thought acting months No one i talked to thought days and weeks That that stunned everyone and from that lack of imagination if you will All the bad things we saw happen fell because it just was no time to do things. When the i in provincial capitals and then caboose around and then the president leave the country and all of a sudden kabul in a matter of days that was that was a shock to the system. I am not a military strategist. I do not play one on the radio but it seems to be common sense that you get your people out of the country and what the eighty million ninety million or so worth of equipment military equipment out of the country. You get the civilians out before you pull the troops. What am i missing here. James well they in anticipated actually leaving behind the large you know one of the lock two largest embassy staffs in the world one in iraq and this one and you know they also did not want to create a panic by choline tens of thousands of afghan. It's out of there now again. That decision will be will be ripping reflected on in the aftermath of how things went so bad that the equipment is a interesting point. We couldn't take we were planning on the afghan security forces holding countries that we have trained three thousand three thousand of them. We couldn't pull their equipment from that would that they would have sold. It was like a house of cards then. So by the time they started surrendering that equipment and surrendering their post. It was too late to get all that without spread throughout the country. So that was there. They destroyed some equipment at the airport. But you're never gonna get all the humvees all the all the all the you know logistical equipment. We had in that country out in a matter of days weeks. it's impossible. Do you think we're going to see a return to afghanistan for us troops. But you know that's that's the that's the that's the concern. I mean we did this. And i and i find the military arguments most compelling that we had it down to a sustainable force level some eight to ten thousand troops matched by nato forces and You know we had presidents who don't agree on anything the ignore that advice and and say they want to get out and they wanted to get out pretty fast. So i you know i. I always found that knowing made that argument. You know the the when made back. I by trump them by biden to continue that withdrawal. It was polling. Seventy percent of the americans proved that so you can talk about how It was done. But the fact that the two presidents agree nothing agreed on this and the american public supported pretty much says a good. The writing on the wall even had the distinct honor and pleasure of talking with several. Who served in both iraq and afghanistan. One of them a navy seal. Who said you know. Nation-building just doesn't work and i think You know he went along as you just reference with about seventy percent of the public the said yes after twenty years. Give or take It's time to leave and certainly that that there's an argument to be made for that. Apparently vast majority of americans agree with that. I i would argue that We have a tradition of leading behind forces after at as strategic stability forces. And we did that. In japan where we still have troops. We did it in germany where we still have troops. We did in south korea where we still have troops. So if you're gonna do wars regime change nation-building inevitable. So i would say if we're not gonna do nation building don't toppling anymore regimes in the future because that should be a clear lesson if you're not gonna stick around and see That government sort of reform itself can help that process and and don't don't topple it now in writing your book in the company of heroes. The inspiring stories of medal of honor recipients from america's longest wars in afghanistan and iraq. Begging the question do those who served medal of honor recipients believed that it was all worth it you know. I had not gone back and talk to the people. The medal of honor recipients that i put file in this book They all have the platform they can speak for themselves. I have talked to A lot of military people in my comment is it was their service definitely not in vain. I was in washington Nine eleven Spent years trying to understand how that happened in why it happened and not a single counterterrorism expert. I ever talked to didn't forecast that we would. We would suffer more nine eleven years to come more terrorist spectaculars like that and we didn't because we sent these brave service members over there to fight these guys in their in their homes and their layers if you will and in afghanistan and iraq And we decimated al qaeda and we decimated al qaeda and iraq and we decimated isis as well. So that's why we be if you keep pressure in the boot heel on these guys and look up and looking over their shoulders. That's why they weren't able to marshal another nine eleven type attacks so certainly about service was not in vain now. Are we looking down the barrel of the very real potential of yet. Another nine eleven style attack in america. Are we less safe now. Well we are. We have much better defensive. Much better surveillance Networks around the world so We'll must better protected today than we were at nine eleven. But we'll al qaeda reconstituting Afghanistan it's already happening. So i i asked the intelligence many things they will and i totally agree because already singing al qaeda leaders amongst the taliban so then we have to worry about candy. You can't keep tabs on these guys and keep pressure on them from afar where they call over the horizon and that's just much more difficult to do so to your earlier question. We'll we'll be back in afghanistan. That's what happened when we pulled out of iraq. Two thousand eleven that we were back in two thousand fourteen because isis almost take over the country if something like that happens again and al qaeda starts plotting attacks on the west. It's quite possible we have to go back ghanistan and that would be a terrible option. Tell us about some of the. And i'm sure that it's difficult to single out one or two but some of those medal of honor recipients that You spoke with you interviewed for your book in the company of heroes us some of their stories if you would well when one story is stands out as the one that launched me on this project and that was the first chapter which is dave navy seal brits levinsky who was the field team leader two thousand and two the first big battle with al-qaeda intolerant fighters They're being inserted on top of a mountain with his team To provide overwatch for the operation and they get ambushed at the top of the mountain tonight in the snow and helicopter barely makes it out of the ambush zone. But one of their one of their sales falls out the back of the helicopter. Helicopter goes crash lands They give back to base in this young Navy seal has to make decision. Do i go back up on that mountain and try to rescue my fallen comrade Knowing that it's a suicide mission essentially and it's and he and his team knew that going back up yet. They went back up to try to retrieve yield. Roberts who was there Fallen comrade up there and indeed they do get ambushed up there. John chapman who is the who is the air force liaison combat controller gets shot and presumed dead. Another seal gets his like just about blown They finally sort of retreat. Down the mountain but then it turns out john. Chapman was dead. He regained consciousness. Adrover catches this and fights furiously another fifty minutes by himself From from the you know this little fighting position that you had and eventually exposes themselves on the quick reaction force helicopter comes up to rescue them. Exposes himself to To taliban fire to try to give it covered land and he's killed two so there you have a case where whenever there was a decision to be made and they could have taken the safer path easier path. They just took the most dangerous and toughest decisions because they to that wanted to live up to their creed of not leaving anyone behind. So i just found that story very very inspiring and made me want to tell more of these kinds of stories and they're all very fascinating and compelling. James kid failed author of a great new book in the company of heroes. The inspiring stories on medal of honor recipients from america's longest wars in afghanistan and iraq. James took the words right of my mouth. Imagine that leave no one behind. Where do we find your book. It can be found any place. Hardback books are sold as well as kindle and it can also be ordered on amazon. And your door james. Thank you so much for your time and especially for your your new book and for taking the time to let those people know how much their service is valued and cherished and honoured. Thanks for having me on. you bet. Six fifty one now northern colorado's voice one of three one thirteen ten. Kf yang the good afternoon. Guy with brian.

Creannotators #17: Chasin The Bird Interview With Creator Dave Chisholm!

"Uh. Welcome complicates annotated. I'm Dave using editor in chief of Carol I'll be interviewing some of my favorite creators in comics about specific runs. Graphic novels were series looking for their insights behind the work that have excited to welcome Dave Chisholm the or a writer illustrator hind chasing the bird a new graphic novel coming out here in two thousand twenty, which I think we're going to see on a lot of best of twenty twenty lists including some over on Comic Book Herald. The site I run chasing the bird is all about the life of Charlie Parker jazz musician that has I think in in many circles fallen under the radar, and this sort of takes a very interesting look through a variety of perspectives from some musicians also in the jazz fear around that time and just people in his life as to what Charlie Parker's kind of genius in in demons were all about. So Dave, thanks so much for joining I. Really appreciate it. Off The bat, how did this project come about a why? Why this particular focus for a graphic novel? So basically. by publisher, the publisher Z. to put out. graphic novel that I did. they put it out wanted route one in two, thousand seventeen that I did call instrumental. And it's a graphic novel about musicians in jazz musicians, and it has an album of music that I wrote that goes with it. and. I have like my doctorate in jazz trumpet. And so They put that out back in two, thousand, seventeen in so. Flat fast forward. like late summer early fall of two, thousand, nineteen, they were contacted by. The Charlie Parker Estate. About doing a graphic novel for his centennial, which is this year like actually is on any any day now Win and then And The estate wanted a graphic novel about his time in California to coincide with an album. A new release of on previously unofficially released recordings from his time in California. And so wins E to. got this idea from Charlie. Parker from the state they were like we know just the guy that contact. They reached out to me. and asked if I would put together a pitch to present to the state and I did. and. Yeah. In here, we are happy ending months later that was back in I think I presented my pitch to them in. Early September or late August of twenty nineteen. So. Yes what's been I guess about a year since I since I very I had the idea presented to me by those guys in. It it became this book. That's interesting. So the so the work itself came together fairly quickly. Then you know if that's a one year timeframe, right? Yeah. Edge How did you? Did you win you pitched it did you have it kind of in your head around the different framing device of various kind of accounts of? Individuals meeting him? Yeah, definitely. That was. That played it that played into. So many that that that approach of telling the story with through the eyes of several different third party people. Never through the eyes of Charlie Parker. Early that really. Allowed me to explore some of the more interesting aspects of Charlie Parker's legacy to me Charlie Parker. Is a figure whose? Whose legacy is he came about during a time when when there's still some mystery like if you were to make a graphic novel about like. Someone who's around today like? I don't know name a pop culture figure who's around today and. You. Everything is spoken for like every moment of their life is captured rum, and whereas like entirely Parker's Day, there was still an element of like myth building around it in myth making and. In. So that was something I noticed. Something I was aware of as someone who's studied this music and for for like my whole life, basically and. Definitely diving into his biographies and a like accounts from people who knew him that? There's a lot of different. Contradictory. contradictory. Stories about who he was, what he was like and what he was interested in. In. So that really. So then it the. Having. That scope. Allowed me to kind of like. Dive into like the legend and the end the man in it allowed me to be a little bit more loose with You know. The. Necessity to have historical. Exact exactitude. To be a little bit more to create something that was a little bit more playful with his story while still being obviously respectful to like his legacy and his music Yeah in the end, it also gave me an opportunity to. Really make the book as much about. Or make the book equal parts of Love, story to Charlie Parker in his music and also love story just to the comics medium. So it allowed me to really explore the inner workings of the comics. Medium. Try Different storytelling styles try different visual arts styles. and. Try to and also the the big challenge about making a book about music depicting music on the page it allowed me to have. To push myself in different directions regarding the depiction of this. Thing that's impossible to depict in comics form. So so yeah, it was a it was a it was a no-brainer in when the when the estate like one of the first things that they said when when I got the phone with them in the pitch call, they were like well first off, we don't want a documentary. We don't want like dry. Like retelling of the events of this period of his life, we want it to be entertaining. We want it to be relevant we wanted to feel current. In all this stuff and so So that played right into my pitch. Anyway, you know because the pitch was. was really around this like I said this. Unreliable narrator kind of angle. So right, right? No. That makes a lot of sense I. I was wondering if the state would have had issues with the approach because it's like you said, there's a nice balance between who is Charlie, Parker happy you get it from all these different accounts where we see that he is you know a drug addict, right that plays a role in his interactions with everyone in his life and obviously that is. Not. Like charming element that that is going to come in biography, but it's an essential element to tell the truth of story but you also get all these counts from like jazz. Dizzy, Gillespie John Coltrane names I did know going into this I'm talking about his genius that really sets up like a while like this is a this is a talent in the eyes of the legends, right? Right. Right. Resell it. Yeah. Yeah. Like even. Even finding ways to talk to speak to his addiction in a way that. Like. Our like. Our western American values we have a really bad relationship with addiction. We don't really. We don't have a healthy way to like talk about. Addiction. in our culture and you know whether the addiction is what? What's the source of someone's Addictive ruminating mind. What? In the end. So like the this kind of gave me like like I said this. In other interviews to like. I knew that there were some things in given the topic of Charlie Parker I. Knew there were some topics some. Like some topics that I couldn't that it would be irresponsible for me to not address in the book One of which is is the topic of addiction in trying to show like the multiple sought the many many faces of an addictive kind of obsessed personality like. You could look at someone like, Charlie, Parker. And say. That that obsessed part of his mind that made him. Such a brilliant musician is the same exact part of his mind that. Caused his self destruction. and. It's just different sides of that obsessed mind you know and I'm I'm someone who's Not to compare myself to Charlie Parker because you know obviously like. Over the course of this book like I. Had to do this book in such a short amount of time. not to. Yeah I mean, just the the way the timetable worked I had to like hit the ground running with it and I was pulling like. Probably like one all night or a week and I was like really obsessed with this in an away like. It felt like. It felt like appropriate for this book for me to fall into that like obsess space on. Then I think I really it. It made me push myself. To like. Make a work that I feel like is the best work that I've ever done. So Nice. Nice. Excellent. That comes through When you're doing the research around the various perspectives, there's an interesting blending of. Accounts. Let's right off the Bat I chapter start. Of Dizzy Gillespie and there's these quotes of him talking about Charlie Parker. How much at throughout the book is. Actual like quote pulled from biography stuff versus you. Needing to interpret and fictionalized some of the accounts. Or maybe less in terms of pitch how how do you? How do you balance that creatively in terms of I need to tell the truth but we don't we don't have literally everything documented, right? Right Yeah Yeah and and also like. a lot of these figures. Wouldn't would never be this candid. Behind like till like an interviewer. Yeah. Right In particular about again, like about a topic. That's like about some of the topics that come up whether it's The topic of race or the topic of Drugs Addiction. Or the topic of. You know like gender politics and stuff like that like. The. So I I would say like there's a good amount like I did a lot of research for this project but in a lot of way in some ways, the narration in. Many. In. All. The chapters I just did all as much research as could like try to find the the cadence of the voice of the person who was talking and kind of like look for some phrases that were part of their. In ways of doing the world like the second chapter is that there's a lot of interviews with that figure that are around and. And the way he talked about art is a really particular kind of vary like. You know Capital eight artist point of view. these very high Falutin like ideas and You know it was it was it was just a matter of trying to channel those ideas to fit this story. And looking for little connections like knowing that a finger like. Zorkin was friends with Richard Feinman the Feynman the famous physicist in like what what kind of. Lake. Topic's Charlie Parker interested in you had had this real polymath kind of mind as well and then Coltrane. So like these kind of like these subjects kind of make their way across like you can see the seed of this subject planet injector to show up in the culture in chapter but I'm when you look at some of these chapters. The historical account on a few of them is pretty small and it was just kind of like. Trying to find threads. And like I said before like I knew their topics couldn't not talk about even if the people themselves didn't really talk about it publicly and so like So like looking for threads like in the. Julia McDonald's account of Charlie Parker. She said he was interested in. Past lives. and Re like reincarnation and past lives, and he was kind of this mystical figure in her life, and this isn't really something comes up a whole lot in Charlie Parker biography because probably because. It was a topic that he didn't. Feel comfortable talking about with someone unless you had like this really kind of. Like like like this is someone who was most likely his like have yet a relate a romantic relationship with this person. and. So I saw I saw that in this account and it was like it kind of blew my mind on that. He did he liked tried yoga with her. He liked it all this kind of stuff that at the time like in the late forties early fifties was like. Pretty. Pretty. Stuff I. Guess. pretty cutting edge Bohemian, counterculture, stuff, and and. So then like that kind of found its way into the. Into like the Coltrane chapter and stuff like that the research process. was. Like really condensed, really like really like boiled in it and it was and it was less about like. Creating perfect? Recruit like historical recreation and more like knowing that there were some things that I had something that I knew that I needed to talk about in the book and then trying to like. Reverse engineer it by looking at history for those things. The Nice thing is that since this is about such a condensed period of time in Charlie's life, I it allowed me to kind of like. Really focused my research on this time in his life as well. So like in a couple of the biographies that I read I, just kind of like focused on the California chapter or chapters. And then There's another book that's like dog eared a lot that some. It's this book by. Let's see. Robert Wright's riser reisner. Rob Reisner is his name. It's a book that's just a bunch of like first person anecdotes about Charlie Parker from people in his life whether it's people who do like the Julie MacDonald content comes from this book. And and there's a lot and like seriously like so many pages are dog-eared and this is like. An approach that's like full of hearsay, but it's also the very same approach that I'm took for this book where it's like it doesn't matter what really happened. It matters what people say happened so. Anyway. That's Yeah. That seems that seems appropriate to because so much like the books structure is everything's kind of built around this mysterious I. Think it's seven month period were Charlie Parker vanishes right and there's all eries from the time around like he's gone on a walkabout he's in. A mental institution he's who knows. He's just practicing his backyard because he would obsessively practice or whatever. It all builds to like okay he's come back right he's going to do this this big return. GIG. But there is there's a feel of myth making in storytelling that I think is inherent to the presentation were to hear you say that I'm like, yeah, that that comes through in the work where. There's not one individual truth necessarily, and I think you you put the example right in front of the the famous parable, the elephant, right whereas you you can't know what the big picture is with. You know little bits and pieces of the only have to see the whole thing. and. That's what each of these courses which are the the chapter framing devices I. It works it makes sense There's also like Certain things you have to hit to make current and it's interesting to hear the estate definitely wanted to push for that I think one of those definitely is like the racial it's rightly Parker is a black musician in a time when musicians are. It's like they're simultaneously in demand in the sense that counts like Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker like white club owners want them to play. But obviously, you know they're not paying as much and they're still all of the. Problems with institutionalized racism that like Have have improved mildly but obviously as we're seeing this year in particular like they are, they're still very well. Yeah there's a soul. Yeah. Yeah. So in terms of making that current and kind of I think it really comes through in the cracks chorus. where he's the photographer, who's a white man kind of wondering he's kind of like pondering out loud like Charlie's drug addiction kind of product of the racism he's dealt with and and a coping mechanism. How did you? How did you Kinda like? figure out how to integrate these these topics seamlessly in the work as you went like, did you was a party that was like I have to touch on this and then I just need to figure out the place to put it. You know. Well very early on in the book I had. Maybe. Two thirds of the whole thing scripted. And I knew that I. I. Knew that I was like. Definitely. Had, blind spots is like is like guy in America like middle class white? Dude in America. And when you when you grow up and get really like when you grow up plan. And then get really serious about it like you're definitely Like for me anyway, I like definitely was have always been aware that like this is music that comes from. Like black, America right and so you're so these these subjects in being sensitive in these subjects. Is something. That's like an. Like. On one hand you're always aware of it and you always WanNa do better and on the other hand like you're. you always have to kind of check yourself and make sure that you're doing the work. Make. Sure that you're. That you're. Yeah. Just make sure you're doing the work and so very early in the process. I had I had quite a bit of it's scripted out and I. I. Hit Up you know some people some. Other musicians that I know who range from like friends to just acquaintances who are black people and ask them if they'd be sensitivity readers for the for the script yet and. And the the input that I got from those conversations. was so valuable. So helpful. In. In finding the places to put those in. Put those topics in the book to put like you said, integrate this topic like like to me like I like Nata. Trash like other media types, but there have been some movies that have come out in the last few years that that involve jazz music. And the were. Has Never. Brought up. You know and I want to say them by name but you know. Just because let's talk about the things that we like not. And and. And that felt really irresponsible to me. and. And so in is looking at these basically looked at the narrators and I looked at Charlie Parker story and I was like Look at the reading reading accounts and. And it was obvious that the William Claxton chapter would be a good one to speak to and also good a good vehicle for speaking to race because it also. Is kind of speaking to that kind of Like. Like. Liberal white person point of view that like you where you were where this character really wants to be an ally. But doesn't know what that looks like in particular during this during that time where it was just such A. On. It was an even bigger blind spot for like for like White America and he's this person who's a big time jazz enthusiast. And he's this young young guy middle class and I was like well. he would be curious about this and so. You know he would talk to Charlie and. I think he would old enough to talk to Charlie and then this is how this is kind of how played out in my head and then I and then just kind of like having long conversations with. with these sensitivity readers to see like how this is gonna how how this might play out in that time and stuff like that. And then the other the other element is this element. that. So that's like the big. That's like the most significant part that speaks to this particular topic those couple pages in William? Claxton. Chapter And then there's that other partly other thing that I notice in Charlie Parker's. Like. There are several interviews within the exist not like a ton but maybe like. Under ten. Okay, and then every almost everyone he like namedrop drops like several like European classical composers. And I thought that was really fascinating. And at the same time, I like it was I had to be truthful in have him do that in the book? And at the same time I had to find a way to make it so that the book wasn't like. Didn't really necessarily endorsed that. Yes. This is obviously what you should be studying because this is Charlie said in interviews. where he may or may not have been like messing with the people interviewing him to like he was kind of like and so. The That was where kind of. Again. Like. In talking to some talking to the to. My on the people who were who did since be reading for me like thinking about like it was just a given that he would know like music from Black America that he would be really familiar with it in particular because his musical memory was so great in his knowledge was so deep that like that he would always talk about these European musicians. In it was not necessarily. It was more like that was a novel thing for him at the time you know because not because the the music that he grew up with his was older or anything like that. But just. and. So yeah, like that came up in the Coltrane chapter as well. But yeah, it was it's tricky man it's It's a it's a difficult subject. And, you know. Impotent in the relationship of writ of race in jazz music has also its own kind of like. Complicated. Or like complex accom complex history because it's a complex in unique history because of the nature of. The jazz music is basically. Like music that's from the people like folk music it's like a, it's like A. It's like a music that's from the people, but it happens to. Blossoms right around the time recording technology blossoms. So in essence, it's the first folk music that we get in human history where the primary source becomes the. Device for. Spreading it all over the world as opposed to like a secondary source like someone going transcribing it to notation, and then that that piece of paper gets spread all over the world. This is like the primary source so like you could hear. Louis. Armstrong, play. On your record player or your or your wax cylinder or whatever back in like the twenties, and you can be like a guitar player in France and. And that music would speak to you in a deep way. Regardless, of where your of what your background is. In in a Lotta ways This is one of many miracles about. Jazz music and like Black American music is that these are the this in essence. These are like the least these were like the least free people in America right in in the music is like the essence of like. The American dream. which net which may be never has really truly existed right? But. The music is like the this like boiled down essence of the American dream and instead of creating this music and slamming the door and saying this is our music they created the music open. The door made the umbrella as big as possible in its ever-growing in. It's an umbrella that anyone can get can get under the umbrella in say like we are under the umbrella of a black American music and we can create whatever we want in in the incredible thing about it is that like. Of course like personifying this musical style but like the this particular style of music like. Has the. Confidence to let anyone put their twist on it. Knowing that the core is still going to be there and it's it's it's it's just it's like it's a it's a total miracle to me so. Hopefully. I can could spread some of that with this book. You know yeah no, it's cool I mean it got me to listen to Charlie Parker for that's right. That's right. That's that's one of my goals for this book or three holes for this book. So that's one of them for sure. Very cool. How obviously you're well well-versed in the history of Jazz, and you perform yourself in have really cool like graphic novel slash album experiment with love just that idea of like combining these two mediums into something where the creative burst of those to think comes together how well-versed were you with Charlie Parker prior to having this assignment. In also just kind of his legend in the way that you're you know with all jaising here I was I would say very well versed in it. Yeah. Like I was very well versed in it like on you know when when When you get when you if for my for my doctorate the last test that you take this fourteen hour test rate. Okay. Fourteen hour test in. If you don't pass it, you don't get a degree, right so take the highest stakes tasks. So. Stressful and part of the test is in SA part of the test and you have to write an essay with no sources. Right? You don't get an encyclopedia you don't get anything. You just have to write the able to they'll give you a topic and say, okay, right. Essay, about this topic in the topic that I got was, what's the? Top talk about three times in music history where the individual. affected. The greater like. The fabric of music right where the individual did. And so I talked about three times where? The. Individual became like a brand to subsequent. Generations. and it was like this renaissance composer named Joe Scan Josten. In after he died his name became like kind of like. Like like this brand for the next generation like that's what we want. That's the ideal right and then I talked about Beethoven and then I talked about Charlie Parker with a three figures that I talked about in that essay about how like they're? In in in a Lotta ways in that essay, I talk about in a Lotta ways. How like they're all three of those people like had innovations that. Things that things that were ascribed them innovations that they invented that actually when you actually look at history before them other people did but they just didn't do it as well. you know so. Revolution that's actually evolution that is. Given. The title of Revolution was kind of like the theme for that and so a lot of that was about like the Charlie Parker part was about like. In. Addition to all the music jargon junk that. was. About. How the bird lifts was like graffiti everywhere after he died and his and his You know there are still people there will always be people who play jazz music who? Aspire to play exactly like trump charlie parker played. and it's like this brand kind of thing. So anyway, yeah. So I would say that really really was really familiar with that. Yeah. No sounds like it. That's awesome and like definitely that they're sort of a a love and respect for the talent like I said in the beginning that really comes through in the work speaking of like the way you actually depict this you mentioned right of frontier like. So there's a there's a biography element right now of who this individual but then there's also like at the end of the day is jazz musician and there's a lot of scenes where everything's building to a performance everything's building to you know him playing the trumpet right and you hit that the saxophone saxophone excuse me excuse me. Yeah, that's important. That's. An Important Defensive Argo and and you depict that different ways throughout the narrative, and there's some really cool visual tricks of you kind of doing like the notes, the scales kind of weaving throughout When he's playing at that artists mansion, it's very surreal. Everything becomes dreamlike, and then at the very end of things kind of spoilers here I guess if they're. Possible. there you know it's worthless. Right? You're saying like it's not there's no dialogue. There's no narrative captured. You're not trying to put into words what that would click. What was, what was your goal? What was important to you in terms of how you visually were able to depict you know like amazing jazz music. A, while I, think like Like your it was like asking all of your audience to just all of a sudden. Have Sin Fisia. Get their senses all mixed up. within within the. Bounds of the story. The the one of the goals was like, how might This person. WHO's narrating the story? Interpret this music, right so I would say like twenty year old William. Claxton. Probably couldn't read music and so there's no music notation on his right? Yeah And Probably this European Turkish. Like artists. Probably. Could read music right. This is me just guessing he's art school kid he probably could read music. And so. That one is noted the other special thing about that one is. The one that plays in that party is There's a live recording of that was actually recorded and so music the that you see in that scene are actually a a very accurate transcription of exactly what Charlie played at this party where all of that crazy stuff went down. and. In for the dizzy chapter like I, I mean, obviously dizzy could read music. Was Super. Super extremely knowledgeable about like the inner workings of this music but for his I wanted it to feel a little bit more like. Improv story. And so I. I kinda came up with those ideas of those boxes, those squares. In like Dizzy squares are blue. Charlie's are like this pink kind of color and for and then when you see the part Where Charlie get kind of try life story. Very, in a very truncated form, all of the squares where you get his life story that same pink color. into kind of. Berry subtly played this famous quote by Charlie Parker where he says like you play the live your own life in. Your. Horn. And so like every time he plays in those panels, those squares that come out it's like supposed to be sort of like symbolically his life in his experience and stuff like that. So in the in the end, there wasn't agenda at the end. So. modern listeners will be here Charlie Parker we made me don't. Understand the revolution that you're hearing. Right. Because at this point Charlie Parker's language. Musical language has become so ubiquitous in so you like. He's obviously like the master at it but like at this point, that's what everyone studies when you go to school for Jazz and when you studied jazz like not at school but just like by playing it and stuff like that like that's the source right you you. You studied Charlie Parker in. So now when you go to like a wedding in, there's little jazz band playing. In this is sax player or a Trumpet Player language that out of their horn is probably some probably watered down version of Charlie Parker. So then when you as a modern day twenty first century listener put on a Charlie Parker track and listen you're like, okay. Yeah, that's cool. Whereas like back, then it must have been like. Getting hit in the face with A. Ton Of. Bricks. and. It must have been a real transcendent experience to hear this music because it was so like levels beyond like anything else at the time, and so the the goal of that last seen the one that you alluded to that we won't spoil too much I guess if it's like you said if it's possible but. By goal with that. was to try to like put the reader in the head space of the people back then, and I really wanted that sequence to be like overwhelmingly. Amazing. To the point that that like when you finish reading it, you're right there with all the people clapping. You're like, wow, that was really something special in Also like that whole sequence, the all of the. The birds in that sequence. If you get the recording that that's based on, you can follow along like each double page. Spread is four measures of music. So you can like count along and follow the birds through the notes that Charlie's playing, which is kind of kind of cool So yeah man in its In go without was to try to like help modern listeners, put their brain in that place that people back then. We're at where their ears weren't accustomed to this. So accustomed to this sound right So yeah. Burkle dig that up the chapter right before that too was one that really stood out to me because it's it's something you're doing throughout the work but it this last chapter really call me where it's kind of like the I don't know you call my record label executive. Yeah that. He it's all. It's very like norrish like stylistically. Diet like caption the style shifts was that one of your goals with this work to to actually allow yourself creative sort of freedom to. Take on different styles like per chorus was that it at narcissistic challenge that you want to embrace? Oh Yeah. Totally. It was part of it from the from the Gecko from moment one. That I knew that. It wasn't just like artistic styles, but total storytelling styles. So that chapter has much more narration than any other chapter in that that guy in real life before he became before he got into like music records. He he took a stab at like being pulp crime novelist. Okay. So like we'll this guy in his biography of Charlie Parker. Is like. Very overblown. And kind of criticized a lot for being like. Like very salacious and kind of like Grimy, you know in. So I was like well. This guy's point of view is going to be. Going to be, this is going to be like a film noir thing and so then I My main like inspiration for that chapter is the amazing book the Amazing Parker Books By. Darwin. Cook okay I thought that yeah. Yeah That was like my basically my style guide except for those couple spots where. Like In inject other styles into that chapter. So that chapter has a couple of spots that are like. The funny like Batman. Page. Yeah. Like the one sequence where He's interviewing all the people at the hotel. And all those people are telling their version of the events in every one of them is in a different style as well. Yeah. So it's kind of like hopefully if people didn't get it by then. They'll understand, oh, this is what's happening through the whole book. Yes. Is that like? You know everyone's stories. Everyone's version of events is irreversible. Irreversibly like. Color changed by their own bio season point of view and stuff like that. So yeah. That's awesome. Doesn't mirror no, it's a it's a great book. I definitely recommend people check out chasing the bird. It's I would say to you like I don't know if there's a worry or fear that like, Oh, I'm not that into jazz music or I don't know anything about this person like that's that's kind of the point that shouldn't really be an impediment to to enjoying this right. I'm a novice I knew the names Dizzy Gillespie John Coltrane I've listened to a love supreme that sort of thing. But like the on that you know I definitely don't know Atanas to John Reid need to explore more but this was this was eye opening in May want to. You to the music more Yeah. No one may one comic to you mentioned you had three goals. Are there any. Are there any other ones that yeah yeah? Yeah like One goal is to get comics people to check out Charlie Parker and to kind of like. Really young do everything I could to. To showcase this like. Total genius from like Black American culture. And then the second goal is to get jazz people to read comics. If any jazz person is like I duNno graphic novels want them to read this and be like what else is there? And then you know making get in. Digging influences on this book and then. Find a whole world of like incredible stories and stuff like that. And then the third goal. Maybe it's just the two goals I mean, the third goal is just to like. Tell tourist. is maybe the big goal is just to tell a good story in a way that's interesting by the I. Love Four I love experimenting with form like I have a sci-fi book that came out this year as well. Called Canopus I. Don't know if you've got to check that out. But like. In every work that I do including not one in this obviously in the Charlie Parker Book. Like. The connex form is like kind of my ultimate The. Ultimate Muse in this is like, how can I how can I mess with the form of this book and I kind of equate it to like music production? Where some producers like Steve Albany. Their whole goal is like get out of the way like push record to a good do like the best recording you can of this artist and your job as a producer as to be invisible. And a lot of comic artists have this approach in. That's totally fine. I have no problem with that I'm not that person I'm my approach is a little bit more like a producer like. Maybe like Nigel God God rich who produces like radiohead albums breath and that in his he's I would say he's a heavy-handed producer where lighter. You can see that like the form and the content or like married together in. So for me like the formalist. Of It is so is everything in. So like I wanNA tell a good story, ultimately, I want to tell a story that moves people I want to tell a story that gets people on multiple levels that's clever and emotional and blah blah blah, and also for me, it's always like I just get kicked out of the messing with four. So it all my favorite. I'll on all my favorite comics mess with form in some way. Nonsense Uber appealing it's increasingly the more comics I read the more appealing it is to see. Artists. Try things that I haven't seen before. It's like try styles that are our new indifferent and even in the instances where it doesn't work, it's like Oh that was interesting like. It, right? Yeah and I kind of feel that way about music like Z. to the publisher who's doing this they have like a ton of music books. That's kind of their angle right now for the most part is books that are related to music. And And I even I teach a class at. Rit here in Rochester Rochester Institute of Technology. It's a college. I teach a class here called at the college called music and comics comics and music and. Hopefully. None of my students listen to this because the basic underlying theme in the class is that like everything is a failure. In, terms of like really effectively being able to do this in a way. That's clear. It's it never succeeds in a way that will work for every reader just because of the massive divide in temporarily between music and comics, right? You can't. You can't really connect this divide however the all of the failures every one of them is interesting. And conversation. Worthy. And it's always like you have a favorite. Example of like music in comics. My favorite. This is gonNA sound really lame but my favorite work is. I try to make the work that I like the most. So my books, my favorite ones even. Like who else who else can I trust to make the book that I want to read besides myself but besides that? I thought the the Jimi Hendrix book is pretty pretty good. The bill cabbage doing Hendricks Book at least has beautiful drawings. I thought. Like like there's a bunch of ones that are like attractive that like for me as a musician, I was really wearing my musician hat. I would have like CR- very critical things to say about them you know. Like. But if I if I can try to distance myself from that like. SNOB vary like unique point of view. I, I I. Think I like almost all of them you know. you know, I mean I have like in the class I have a there's like that Glenn Gould. Book. That came out by sandrine rebel. In. Hop Family Tree, which is so different from that and then We have like Phonogram is on the singles club is is is on the syllabus this year. which will be interesting to see what the students get out of that on the Fifth Beatle is on there. Okay which is like. Some of these books aren't really music books. They're like stories where music is in the story but that's okay. We can still talk about formalism. There's a lot of formal techniques, all of these books that are like really interesting. So. Not Vertical knows our picks to. Our good. The also chase numbers awesome are recommended or anything else on the rise in you mentioned your Scifi series from Scott Comics which I have not had a chance to read yet but I definitely plan to. After reading this eleven coming up. Looking forward to it is there other stuff coming up you WANNA talk about you know I have some Iran's on the fire none of which I can talk about. So I am I am working. Every day on new stuff. And as soon as I can talk about. You know unlike the loudest person on twitter. So all. As. Soon, as I can talk about it, I will But as of right now, just know that I'm working. Glad to hear it. Good Article Dave, this was awesome. I appreciate you taking the time and and we'll have a have some links to jason the bird here on the show notes for everybody wants check it out. Awesome Dave. Thank you, ma'am. were.
