The Real Reason NFL Ratings Are (Slightly) Down

"So Dan. Let's start the story back in June is been ten days since George Floyd was brutally murdered. To actually. Listen to you. We had this prominent NFL players put out that video about black lives matters. Behalf. Football League. This is what we the players would like to state. Leave black lives matter. And then Commissioner Roger Goodell doing what the players had requested. We the National Football League emit we wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all to speak out in peacefully protests. Read the National Football League Aleve black lives matter was their concern within the NFL at that time about the league. So openly embracing the black lives matter movement and concern that it could impact. TV ratings when the season began I think without a doubt. There was concern commissioner goodell made that video without consulting the owners many of whom in the past taken a hard line on kneeling intertwining politics, social issues and sport. We have more on the story that is dominating the National Football League the anthem protests Jerry Jones was Adam Sunday that any player that does not stand for the national. Anthem will not play Jones clarified that statement telling our Chris sentiment within the NFL that good for business is no intersection of politics and sports. Now that boat seems to have clearly have sailed not just in the NFL, but the rest is sport but I would be surprised if ratings fall, we don't begin to hear some voices from within the NFL saying we've gone too far on opening. Night of the season, the chiefs versus Texans, we saw players link arms in a moment of Solidarity Ladies and gentlemen please join us in a moment of silence dedicated to the ongoing fight or equality in our country, and we've seen a number of players putting names of victims of police brutality on their helmets. What's bend the public response to those moves? Obviously in Kansas City there was some booing. Depending on which media outlet you read it was either a lot of booing or a little booing. But there was some booing and interviewing the fans who booed it's hard to know why whether they disapproved of the message whether they disapproved adjust anything interfering with sports but there will always be that voice saying we don't want is social issues politics intersect was fort. So after week one, there were reports that NFL ratings were down though it turns out those reports weren't entirely accurate and a whole bunch of analysis followed, Dan, what was some of the commentary around those early reports were obviously in a politically charged Environment, and there are those who want to scribe lower sports ratings to the political movements that have intersected with sports. So you saw headlines and certain conservative publications woken NFL ratings down sixteen seventeen percents the doubleheader on Monday night football, the Sunday night football game, the Thursday night kickoff game those were down monstrously large over last season. Why is that to me? The answer is pretty simple. My hypothesis is when you get woke, you go broke but everybody in this environment of trump versus bite in republican versus Democrat. Every wants to interpret sports ratings through that Lens football's boring as hell, it's just not the same pattern. Used to. Say could you keep it away from football game? Now say, could you possibly do it during football game? We have some free time when really the reasons for ratings rise and fall have very little to do in my opinion with the political news of the day.

Bill O'Reilly Responds to NFL Plans for Social Justice Decal Stickers on Helmets

"For the O'Reilly Update Message of the day the National Football League damaging itself by getting political League officials, owners, players are compiling a list of names to be used on helmet decals. Including George Floyd. The program, alas, throughout the entire season. Commissioner Roger Goodell recently apologized for his opposition to players taking a knee during the national anthem in seasons past. Saying We were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and now encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the National Football League believe black lives matter. Well, most Americans believe black lives matter, but they also believe police lives matter. 10 players put a decal of slain police officers on their helmet, Mr Goodell It's not Then your league is a political organization, not a sports franchise. In 2016. The NFL rejected Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, who wanted to wear stickers on his helmet honoring the five police officers. Slain in Dallas. According to league policy then and now quote Players generally must present an appearance that is appropriate to representing their individual clubs and the National Football League. The term uniform is used in this policy applies to every piece of equipment worn by a player, including the helmet. So if you were banning In the past all slogans on uniforms. And you're going to change it now You've got to change it for everybody. By agreeing to social protests on the field. The NFL will anger many fans. You will not support the product. That means less revenue for the lead. Let me spell it out. Fans can't go to many of the games this year. So the merchandise the shirts, the jackets off the teams is the primary source of revenue. Well, I'm not buying any merchandise if the NFL bans police officers from being honored I'm not going to do it. But far more important is the message. That the NFL is apparently sending America's an unknown fair country. Okay, we need to improve sane people agree, but it's all one side now. So I don't believe this is going to work out well for the National Football League, the N ba Major League baseball of his starts. There should be no politics on Game day. That's easy. No politics on Game day. If the players want to talk about social justice on for that, then come on my programs any time. But not on games during the week with the press conference is sure no problem

After 87 years, Washington's NFL team changed in two months

"World turned upside down on its head with the announcement that the Redskins after what a century have decided to Finally change their name and Ah ah image and likeness and you know a lot lot into the store because still a lot of the decisions that have to be made. Let's head out to the wait for Dotcom hotline. We're joined by then. Fisher covers the NFL and Olympics for Sports business daily. You can follow Ben on Twitter at Ben Fisher s V. J. Ben will appreciate time and thanks for spending a few minutes with us here in Atlanta this evening. Have you be there? Anytime. So then let's talk a little bit about this decision. Do you think You know, part of the You know, whatever the internal review and things like that, that they had a pretty good idea that they were going to change the name. Do you think that they probably hired a firm? To already start to put the wheels in motion of coming up with new name, new image and things like that. Well, somewhat surprisingly, I don't believe they have That there's an obvious question the sort of thing you'd almost always bring in 1/3 party, um, agency or since consultants. But it appears by all accounts to be a very narrow circle there. Dan Snyder and a couple other people and not many others. Um, I guess makes a certain amount of sense because they know the more people you bring him more likely than a leak conceit. That's about but I'm not sure they actually have gone through a lot of those traditional steps. You would expect that of somebody doing a big rebranding. How much do you think if you just had to even kind of estimate? How many millions of dollars are we talking about from? I don't know. Hiring a marketing or PR firm to help with You know, with all of this, plus the actual creation of a name and logo and, you know, obviously will be merchandising and all that kind of stuff. What kind of money do you think A team gets into when when this kind of process takes place? What? Um I'd say all in and the big cost there, I think would really actually be the the lost merchandise and the things that you've already created, Or you like to be the Mari created there now useless. Um So I mean, I'd say 30 million. Mark is finished. I mean, that's a very uninformed guests. You know, I have to check a lot of things for that Sounds right time. You got your professional thieves, illegal fees. He spent a lot of time in court. Even if no one really fights trademarking, gotta go the European Union and get those trademarks and all sorts of things you and I probably would never consider And then you know you've got what do you think of all the products in this world business cards, Coffee, moans of sign anywhere that has a Redskins logo or a name. We gotta go be replaced in very short order. And the reason that 30 I mean, 30 may be high, but we're all going on the assumption that they want this happened very quickly. And just like constructing an office power if you need it done extra fast. You're paying overtime and your pain for things that you probably rather not. But That's the cost of expediency. Ben Fisher joining us here in the wait for dot com Hotline covers the NFL for sports business daily. Then talk to me a little bit about on. I don't know. I don't know if you know this. You know the process by which We know the league wants this to happen, and Roger Goodell has supported it. But what any idea what goes into league approval is if the owners in a certain percentage About the logo aboutthe name. You know, I mean, any idea about how that process works, at least get that step done and over with Uh, yeah, We don't need to approve it on and that's ah vote of owners. But other than that, it's it's actually it's not entirely clear, not on. There's not a detail procedure in public. And that is public knowledge on exactly how that happened. But the league certainly does have rights over this. You know each of these 32 teams the individual business for certain purposes, but The league knows they're going strong in its weakest member, and they don't want to be placed. One problematic became with another dude. Definitely I'd say so over that, But you know it's a bit of a black box exactly what they would be looking for, or what? Where the where the possible problems spots are on that son. You know, Ben, when the AH When Houston moved the Tennessee I believe it was Was it two years that they played with the Oilers marker or year year and 1/2 for something that they have the moniker before the seven? Okay, so they had them so they had the order. So my point is, is that it wasn't like the day that they moved to Tennessee, they become the Tennessee Titans. How long do you think this process plays out? And maybe compared from, you know, financial and just, you know, is there some comparison to how long it took with the Titans? Even though they knew that they were going to, you know, end up changing this. Can we kind of compare the situations about how long it may take for all of this to finally come to fruition? Well, I guess there's no reason you couldn't compare them because that is the last time a team change nicknames. Um, without you know, part of Ah, relocation or, you know you could talk about the ground Reagan's thing, Whether that was technically an expansion people, whatever but It was the last time you standing franchise without moving cities of changed his name, but it's so long ago. I mean that the scope of their websites but sort of your very basic, just digital properties that the Redskins will need to rename are so much bigger and I like being all that got so much more complicated, but that there is a good four compared to because that was a situation where The name change was part of a broader strategic vision and means that happened, But it wasn't necessarily important that it happened. By given bay. They were able to do things sort of under normal business. This is something now that it is completely different because there is a sense of urgency and we don't know exactly when they want to set up a new maid. But all indications are reporting is basically as soon as possible. And this is not something that you know, most business experts say wise to do. It's possible There's a 1,000,000 different things you get wrong. That re brandy. You want to make sure everything's perfectly buttoned up. So it probably doesn't take. You know, two years it took the Oilers to become the Titans, but it surely would be taking more than the two months that it would take. To put up totally rebranded team on the field in September. So my supposition that the season is going to be something of a neuron period in regard to the Washington football team name, and the more I think about it, the more I think that they might well play this year, just like known as the Washington football Club work. Burgundy and gold uniforms that simply don't have any luck. I'm not predicting that I'm saying that maybe the most likely explanation for them trying to do this this late in the summer. Amid everything else, the NFL is trying to say You're out with the pandemic, of course. Ben, talk to me a little

Inside Washington's Name Change

"John How's it? Goin'? It's been a little bit busy. You might be having the busiest off season well, always busy right now to all the deck Prescott stuff, but but you pretty busy. It was on? July six and a couple of things happen. I told my wife said. I'm about to work in eighteen hours a day on July six. NFL. Opposite in what is going on, and it turns out. That was actually probably a pretty good day in hindsight. John covers the Washington DC based NFL TEAM FOR ESPN Since. We are talking about names I. Do feel it's necessary to point out your John Crime I- Amina climbs two different names not. Although I will say had some relatives. Years back did like genealogy, and at one point, it was kind real in Europe, so we could be related I. Just want to put that out there well. I do get mistaken for you. Know I think there's a similarity so. So back to the name at hand. John The Washington football team announced on Monday after much speculation many reports that they will be retiring their nickname and logo after completing review that began on July third. This has been a conversation for a very very long time, but the team's principal owner Daniel. Snyder has been on the record. Saying the team would never in all caps literally change its name, and then here we so before we get to why this happened. And what's GonNa Happen Next? I just want to ask you as a beat reporter. Did you ever think this day would come? Well. Let me let me step back from that pre. George Floyd, no, because in the past. We've had a deal with this topic many times over the years especially in the last seven. I think the rise of social media has kept it alive, but during that time the plan the strategy here for the reds for Washington was to write off the storm. Just weather the storm. Go go to reservations connect with native Americans and do something like that then when you saw the social unrest this year. You started to seep in your head like they're gonNA. Come after them again and I'll tell you when it really really thought they work to be about. Run at this time was. There was a stretch it about a week where George Preston Marshall, who original owner of the of Washington? And he named the team, and he moved the team from Boston, to Washington will statue was outside their old stadium are k. well. They removed the statue, not the team, but a company in DC that owns that land, so you tweet that out and I'd say. Say Ninety percent of the mentions after that on twitter, where about what about the what about the name? What about the name? The next day team says they're going to retire bobby? Mitchell's number only retired one of the number in their franchise history, so they tweet that out and I wrote a story. Put out there. What about the? What about the name? I've. There's just becoming way too much of everything. They did route this. If they put out a statement about George Floyd about black lives matter, it would always come back to their team name. It was to a level that I hadn't seen before. It does seem though at least from the outside that the true catalysts the thing that pushed this over the edge was the teams naming sponsor Fedex and Fedex asiyo. WHO's a minority owner coming out on the record against the name? Yes and I'm going to back up a couple of weeks before that because there some parallel timelines that led to I think this occurrence and one of which was Dan Snyder had reached out I was told by multiple that he had reached out to the League a few weeks before that, and had already started to engage in conversations with the NFL, Roger Goodell about a possible name change along that same time there's the group of eighty seven shareholders and investors were combined six hundred twenty billion dollars in the lead by investor advocacy groups, so they're the ones who targeted Fedex Habsi company Nike Bank of America. It wanders sponsors. If you don't sever your ties here, you know. That's what they want to sever their ties, and so that's what they're pushing. When Fed, ex came out with the statement. That's when when people I've talked to said. That's when they knew it was over. I WANNA to talk about those groups. All of the activists who've been working tirelessly on this for years, but I thought it might be helpful to break down why the name exists in the first place. Where does it come from? The name when it first. Started I guess or was mentioned throughout history was about refer to the color skin and there is. I've got her who worked for the Smithsonian magazine, went back and researched it and found that it was way that native Americans would refer to other to differentiate themselves from. Whites or blacks or whomever else was here, so they referred themselves the redskins than it seemed to segue into a negative connotation, which you know, you'd see posters or read about posters, offering rewards for bringing fifty dollars for bringing the scalp, redskin or bringing Redskin, in which meant the scalp, so it certainly segue into something. That was a negative connotation. So how did it come to be the name of this particular NFL franchise? That's a great question, so we go back to nineteen thirty two and for anybody listening I was not covering the team at that time so nineteen who? Shared a stadium with baseball's Boston braves, so they were called. The Boston braves the following year. They moved to Fenway Park with the Boston Red Sox, so the story that that no his come about from that is that they wanted some sort of. Alliteration with the Red Sox, and so they went with the Redskins, but they also had a coach Lone Star Dietz and several native American players on the roster, George Preston Marshall said he was naming it basically in part because they had a native American coach. Now there's controversy over long star deeds whether he was actually native American up, but that was the given explanation at that time.

A Turning Point: Race Relations In Sports

"It has now been more than four weeks in George. Floyd was murdered nearly a month since we all watched him. Take his last breaths. It feels like so much is different, but real actionable change that takes time. Many who took to the streets in protests have now resumed their daily lives, so now seems appropriate to discuss how sport will handle affairs moving forward. As North American teams and Leagues Continue Their Return to play processes. It is vital that the conversations and promises made when the racial issue was hottest that they do not go away. In a few moments, we will welcome in our panel to discuss how that should happen, but first a look at how we got here in the first place. He will have color have been argued about beliefs, and that's not right. That's not right by any was standards. The point he was making gut twisted from the start. The beginning when Colin Kaepernick I made is public protests peacefully heap I sat on the bench during the national anthem to bring awareness. There's a lot of things that need to change once one specifically police brutality. There's people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable. It was the summer of two thousand sixteen, when he bursts truly used his platform as an NFL quarterback to speak out against systemic racism by police in the weeks leading into that preseason payment. San Francisco capper Nick had watched. We all had. To white officers pinning down Alton Sterling. And pumping. into his chest and back. He saw the traffic stop in Minnesota when Philander Casteel was killed in front of his girlfriend in charge. And captured it could not understand how mental health therapist Charles Kinsey could be shot by police when he was lying on the ground with his arms up in the air, people of color have been targeted by police. Cops are getting paid leave. For killing people. That's not right. That's not right by anyone's standards. And yet from the beginning law in. pre-game gesture was misrepresented and downright manipulated. The Christ came that he was disrespecting the flag that it was a slap in the face to military personnel. But when active soldiers pointed out, they serve to provide their citizens with the freedom of speech that capture nick was exercising. That narrative quickly was quashed when army veterans who had been in battle, echoed that very sentiment out of national football league buildings team needs I would be disappointed if any of our players didn't stand up for the national anthem personally. I, look at that as a salute to the people who have paved the way for us. Our Organization believes that. You should. Respect the flag and so you'll save those individual decisions to expression show. On individual form. And that became the prevalent message. Don't do it here. Stick to sports. The underlying tone. How dare you protest without our approval we're. Do you get off? Colin Kaepernick criticizing anyone in another uniform. Right the men and women lead for this, I- scenic. First hand. For. Somebody do that to get paid millions of dollars. It's ridiculous. Cabinet remained undeterred. United States Army Bet. Nate! Boyer who did tours of duty in Iraq, and Afghanistan encouraged him to kneel and not sit. By, taking a knee voyeur told him you show your respect for fallen brothers that way. So capture nick did. And then more NFL players followed. And yet the public and political conversation in the US would not steer toward police brutality. No matter how much star athletes peacefully attempted to. And the leader in America's biggest chair. Amy Shirley Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners? When somebody disrespects our flag to say, get that son of a job appealed right now out each fire. I! Capture Nick became a source of division for standing up against injustice. He hasn't taken a snap since that twenty sixteen season. And at this year Super Bowl USA. Today's jared bell minced no words on why that is I. Think it's pretty obvious. He's been blackballed for Colin Kaepernick not to have a job is just. It's the worst look for the NFL. No conversation was more dominant inside NFL. Locker rooms that season than the Kapernick one teams are made up of players of all ages of all backgrounds of so many ethnicities. If you actually want to listen to different perspectives. If you're an athlete who would want to hear what your peers had to say, there would be no shortage of takes to soak in. But fundamentally the want would be to understand capper knicks fundamental point. After George Floyd one of the League's biggest stars reminded us that many still didn't I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country. Maybe that was the crossroads moment because the reaction to. It felt like something had changed almost as. That won't cut. It anymore drew. brees in the rest of the NFL were told right away, the new. Orleans quarterback came under fire. The players in the league had just about enough of the establishment silence. They had captured message. They were not gonNA. Let owners and Roger Goodell get away with it this time. Would have other Jewish Knowledge George if I was. I was George Void. Jewish. And say hi in. Regard. To me right. Breezes all pro receiver found Dallas's bruising runner and Houston's electrifying quarterback, and Kansas City Super Bowl Mvp. And Obi. And they all let you know. We. Condemn Racism and assistant. Matic oppression of black people. National League, admit wrong and silence our players from protesting. Also. Black lives matter black lives matter. Like loves. To Have Patrick Mahomes the next superstar the NFL. Front and center. That was massive. And the very next night the commissioner uttered the words you never imagined would happen. We the National Football League Immune. We were wrong for not listening NFL players earlier. And encourage all speak out in peacefully protests. Read the National Football League believe black lives matter. Progress. Probably a step forward. You want to believe so. The day after the commissioner changed his tune, breeze went to social media again. He'd already made his hollow apologies without actually saying sorry, and he finally seemed to be listening to what some teammates had to say, and after all of that even drew brees somewhat stood up to the president. It won't Change Donald Trump of course, but maybe it will make others think. Perhaps it will create more uncomfortable conversations to allow for a greater understanding among all of us. And at the very least it has given others throughout sport. To have the freedom to finally say their piece open believing they may at last be heard. Or country is in, trouble. Basic reason is race. You're seeing an example of future. That's fighting for you for you. Right now a fine for you got a grandfather that march legs. Dr King in the sixties. And he was amazing. You'll be proud to see us all. Got Pushing? Forward Doing Casey marched with his family. Members of Detroit's organization. An NBA coach using his voice. Over in Jacksonville Jaguars personnel were among the demonstrators. North Philly's finest. He walked. Kyle Lowery's we can. Priorities were set. This though. This is just the start. To silence of countless elites spoken loud. Until you see action from an, don't forget by the leaks themselves. We wonder what the real commitment to progress actually is. What capper protests was about from. The beginning can no longer be debated. And it is now crystal clear to all of us that no athlete should just shut up and dribble. Nelson Mandela famously said. Sport has the power to change the world. Since George, Floyd perhaps we have learned that change can come more from our sporting icons using their voice platform in pursuit for justice than any jumper were swing. Or goal or touched them. Stick to sports. Sure let's stick to sports bettering the world in a new way. Let's start hearing the real message now. And most of all, let's not get the words and actions like Hafer. Knicks twisted. When he tried to begin the real conversation. Before US AGO!

"See Snow June seventh I'm over it. No but does not not in summer, not in some good to see again. That's it. So it was a big weekend for the NFL no games, no practices, but it was a big weekend and Roger Goodell came out and did the right thing, and I'll get to that in a second, but here's Roger Goodell I imagine somewhere in the basement of his house, saying I'm now going to align with the players. Here's the NFL Commissioner. We the National Football League condemn racism in the systematic oppression of black people. We the national fully emit. We were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier. And encourage all speak out in peacefully grotesque. Read the National Football. Aleve, lack lives matter. By the way, many owners did not know Roger Goodell was going to do that. He did and should have and here's why. But the last several years, three or four Colin Kaepernick took a knee. There's been this walking on eggshells. Thing with NFL and trump's twitter account and players Eric Reed Malcolm, Jenkins, and other players talking about protests, and it's walking on eggshells and the networks that broadcast games. This one included. Everybody is just hoping this doesn't happen in. That doesn't happen I. Just don't think it's a healthy relationship. Finally. Roger Goodell took the power away from Donald, trump's twitter account and said. Turn my partners. I'm splitting revenue with them. I love these players I have relationships with these players. I'M NOT GONNA. Let anybody divide us. I'm on the players side. I on their side. We have a president who's brand is division. It's over. He'll be gone in November, he will. And he can divide people on his twitter account Roger Goodell, said no time out. I'M GONNA WALK ON EGGSHELLS? It's the right thing to do for humanity. It's the right thing to do with my business partners, and frankly it's just the right thing to do. Support the players. I don't know exactly what the NFL player owners split is, but owners make more, but players make over forty forty five percent of the revenues. I believe sorry, if I'm wrong, probably should have looked at up, but if you're a business with people and their valuable and you like them. And and this fear based stuff that well. If the players protest, they don't WanNa blow the League up. It's their industry. It's generational money. The NFL players. Don't want to blow the League up. They just want to be heard. And you know here's the thing it. It's easy. I mean twitter makes a living out of this Gotcha. You said this six years ago. You said this nine years ago. You said this nine months ago. I'm over that if you want growth. And Roger Goodell showed growth. It's very hard to demand perfection. Derek jeter didn't wake up hitting three hundred. He struck out a lot. And that's sports. We're talking race in human beings and social justice, these are delicate topics, and it takes not. Everybody learns at the same speed. Bill Maher said THIS BILL MAHER HBO. He's one of those crazy old liberals. He actually said. During Michael Salmon Michael Sam got drafted again. F. L. Player and kissed his partner and everybody freaked out and bill. Maher said not everybody learns at the same time. It's OK of one or two fans were a little shocked. They'd never seen. It had to take a deep breath, and then can respond. Never forget one of my favorite president of all time I've always told people. My favorite presidents are Reagan and Obama. Nobody can figure out why and for different reasons I like their leadership abilities, but Obama's first term as president and I think he's one of the smartest president we've ever had. He was opposed to gay marriage, and at the time I remember thinking smart guy bad take. And then he listened and learned, and that's how growth happens. Is that you you don't hear enough angles? You don't listen well enough about Roger Goodell and he's been criticized for years as a commissioner. And I keep saying this, he's not stubborn. He's not rigid. He's always been willing to the rules the television business. He listens to players. Too much of this stuff that's going on in America is fear based I've been watching CNN I'm old enough. You and Watson at twenty years I've been watching it thirty years. We're having a revolution in this country. Other countries. I've watched CNN for thirty years on revolutions. They don't look like ours. Ninety nine percent archer peaceful protests be honest with you ninety nine point nine percent. Of protests for our. Revolution has been peaceful. I watch, CNN. It's not always like that. There's too much fear out here. I was talking to my daughter about this. I mean really for the entire weekend with my family. It's not called only black lives matter. It's black lives matter. Your partners in this amazing sport of the NFL just asking, we listened to us. Will you hear us? Were partners? We're not looking to end the league. Just improve it. And Roger Goodell as he's done many times he gets a lot of criticism sat down and went. Players are right. I was wrong. Just because you're over, fifty doesn't mean you can't grow. I mean Gregg Popovich I think he has a military background in his seventies. He's constantly evolving. It's Okay I. Don't know when this became a weakness. I don't know when we became so partisan. That stubborn was smarter than evolving I don't get it. It's not my DNA. It's just not the way I'm built. I have stronger and different opinions today on subjects from just two years ago I'm talking about a couple of subjects today that I just I see the world differently. Some people are never going to get it. They're not curious. They don't WanNa read. They put their feet. They burrow in, and they're not gonNA. Move, but here here for Roger Goodell the only thing I would warn is that you don't get growth without some mistakes. You GotTa Stumble. Often to get to the right place, the NFL did and I thought it was a great leak, and actually for America with a peaceful protests kind of blown away by it, and it was a great weekend for the NFL. They took the power out of trump. I WANNA work with my players. These are my guys. These are the guys on Sunday. I'm going to battle with and I'm supporting..

Chicago I want a art contest that was really young like eight or something and I got to go to Chicago, and he was at one of those remember telethons sure they bring all celebrities in the phone, so he was there and I started freaking out. Coach. He's one of the truly great guys in our business. Just he's just great. So, funny I even I used to live in Connecticut I, My wife and I. You know got a place down in Naples Florida. And we just fell in love with it. Just love it. Get up in the morning, right little bicycle. Sex L., so chill and there used to be this bar named handsome Harry's and it was all. Of like good looking people and stuff you know, but older kind of sophisticated older crowd and I'm talking to want out one time and I like I got a place in Florida and he does wear. I said Naples. He Goes I. got a place there. He says. Where do you like to eat I? I like to go have a cocktail at handsome Harry's. He goes I own it. I'm like what what are the and he's been sold it but I was like I. It's it. It looked like once at you. Know Gentlemen handsome. Coach. He's really he's one of the all-time great human beings so. Listen social media's rough and I. May I bait the way I attack. Social media just have fun I. Don't take myself seriously. I can't roll my eyes at it, but I do put some stuff out, so it gets tweets and stuff and my social media team likes it, but it's hard to have an opinion. That goes against the grain. I mean who wants to deal that crap. Your phone blown up. And so people basically in most people in life for followers, anyway so on twitter. It's just followers. Very few people are willing to say now. The opposite is true. Roger Goodell's a great commissioner. Twitter you're wrong. You just keep following. He's no good, but he's more successful than you or anybody in your family or anybody you know, and he runs the NFL, really really well. and. You can't say that on social media. Everybody loves Adam Silver. More woke. Nobody likes Roger Goodell. And I look at the schedule. It's just great. I mean do you notice this in week to every team? Playing each other has a bye week meaning they can move it. No Division Games in week three and four meaning virus they can move it. September is very malleable, also super bowl in Tampa. There's a two week to week space, but before the Super Bowl so get a break there. They can move that around. Lots of flexibility and the NFL's really well run. I don't think they get everything, right. Anybody that criticises goodell for as missteps as somebody. That's never had a big boy job. It's hard lead Canadians like everybody. They don't even like their prime minister. We didn't like Barack. Obama wants because he wore a beige suit. People just don't like leaders. Social media's vile, an angry and anonymous. We don't like anybody. We don't like any of our commissioners and I, like I think all of our commissioners. Into like Ivy League schools. They're successful people. I like all of them Adam, silver sometimes is a little too pro player, but that's the NBA. It's always kind of in the NBA, but I met. All these commissioners met all of them. I like all of them. They're all smart but goodell gets just clobbered. Do you know how hard it is to run the NFL? Regulated regulated violence. You got the gambling hangover it. It's absurdly popular. You've got network. You're on every network. You got every network executive and president, and the Murdoch's and this group net group, and they're all asking questions, and it's hard and players make mistakes and players are young, and there's domestic violence, any kind of butchered it and then the capital. These are hard hard again. Canada likes everybody. They don't like their prime minister, but I looked at the super bowl. This year I thought join I agreed. It's one of the best five hours of TV. It was is incredible incredible. Hickup I thought free agency. This year he got blowback was terrific I. Thought the draft I'm still we work in television. Televisions hard it anyone point join I. could triple Redan wire innocuously off the air. They went four days on that draft. On zooms and it was brilliant from basements. You got to see the families and the kids. It was so heart warming and I thought the schedule yesterday that got all sorts of little opportunities in early season to move it. You just gotTa. But nobody wants to say that about him. Nobody's saying he's perfect. No I. President I love I loved Reagan disagree with a lot. I loved Obama. Disagree with a lot, but by and large. This league is so well run, and it's hard and I'll tell you this. Here's an here's an advantage to the NFL. States now we've got unemployment rate of fifteen percent. States need additional revenue because these budgets are all going to be deficits. States are going to pass gambling. Legislation Fast you thought pro sports gambling legalized. Supreme Court was moving in the right direction. It's going to be overnight. You're going to see states approve why they need additional revenue for their states so good luck taken on the NFL when sports is legalized and forty eight to fifty states in the next six months. They are all going to sign off on it for additional revenue for the states they're. They're going to be all behind it. And what sport do we the NFL? But I looked at that schedule release yesterday. No league turns a combine a draft and schedules into must watch television and nobody wants to admit Roger. Goodell's good perfect. No flawless. No made mistakes, yes! But Canadians don't like their prime minister and they like everybody. It's an indication, an illustration of how hard it is to run a country, a business or a league. I think Adele's great. I've met him two times dinner with him had drinks with him. He could not he unlike a lot of powerful people. He's a listener. He just asked questions. He wants to know answers. What do you think? Why do you think that he is just constantly curious about how to get better? And I watched this thing last night, and I looked at the schedule and I'm like Man Bravo. By the way the Patriots. Now many of you. Would suggest that I'm a Patriot Toma. I. Of course, am not they just have the best coach and the best quarterback for like fifteen twenty years. But I looked at their schedule, and when I say they're going to go six and ten or seven and nine I get nothing but pushback. You look at the schedule you tell me. Where the nine and ten wins are.

"As it comes to risky players you know mate newton ended up doing time after his career was over michael werbin obviously had his problems during the cowboys a glory days jerry jones has always stood behind his players come hell or high water i think jerry is right on brand jerry has a vision for this lee that contradicts our isn't in an agreement with the vision of roger goodell and the current leadership i think jerry is saying that the compensation committee this small group of six is afraid of change he's not jerry's never been afraid of change jerry has never been afraid of imposing his will envision on the rest of the league i think jerry's just being jerry i don't see this as being an aberration terms of hemp take more risk because he has taken a lot of risk on on players over time and really he's he's tried to block this to some degree for while at least it's been rumored that he's been trying to block this for a while i do think jerry's a businessman in the sense that it was okay when when roger was was acting as commissioner and things were going well and it didn't directly affect his opportunity to win a super bowl but now with the chance that has equal it could be out and the windows for winning a super bowl get smaller and smaller and dallas to me that's why it changes to to possibly luring up or lawyering up at this point to to try and make sure as equals there throughout the course of the season we became personal win a good deal came at his players as you just said he goes after he he will take care of his players that that's been the imo of jerry jones but right now it's it's a changing of the guard i think this is more so now that i'm looking at what's going on this is not just about his players this is all encompassing this is the whole anthem issue this is everything jerry is.
