AI and the Evolution and Automation of Live Chat - with LivePerson CEO Robert LoCascio
"So rob. I want to dive in to the future of a and chat in the enterprise and the little bit of your journey there. But before i even do even ryan this company for quite some time when you guys started online chat in the ninety s companies public firm for twenty years. Here when you look to your business something. Like i don't know how many seventy or eighty million conversations you're handling in any given month when you look down at your business tried to find where. Ai could layer value for your clients. How did you think through that process. Because it seems like that's almost an endless There's almost an endless number of answers. They're basically looking at the data center. We do about seventy eighty million conversation month. I kinda you know that data we could take and look at how are use cases around banking and telco and and and retail and healthcare. These are big customer bases. Come from these verticals. How can we automate those conversations and so we basically just dove into the data we aggregated. The data looked at across customer. And we could see that there were patterns that made really good conversations. So that drove is to say okay. Let's build a host of tools and a new platform called conversational cloud in which we could enable large enterprises market customers to scale their conversation. Automate them and with the onset of covid the there was a massive massive impact contact centers the contact center agents help and nope he was there. They couldn't take calls so so they went home now. They're taking calls there and so there's been a massive drive to automation now because having someone work at home and answer calls just not the way to go. How do you automate that through a digital experience. That's really what's happened and obviously with the onset of covid firms like yourself or now in this position to potentially catch the opportunity to major way when you look at serve. What's potentially automated man even there so much to get into. I mean there's for each individual business that you work with you know maybe a work in with a one. Eight hundred flowers may be. You're working with us. The citibank guys work with some of the biggest companies in america here. The use cases are relatively bespoke And i know you. You worked on building a tool. That's at least understandable for nontechnical people. We definitely need subject matter. Experts to layer context and to structure or flow flows for these conversational systems. But you determine what the bounding box would be because even that feels feels endless and you need to kind of focus in somewhere yes we. We're all this under the header of commerce. And i fundamentally believe that conversation. Commerce is going to be the next leg of digital so we had ecommerce and now we're shifting see commerce and e commerce is is a very interesting thing when you think about like show up at a website and basically every website looks the same right. I mean top nab. Yeah data and google set those rules instead of you don't do that. We won't index you and that's why everything looks the same so what you're seeing is digital each brand doesn't have its own personality now with conversational commerce. You develop your own personality and you develop your own way to engage your consumers too like chapultepec. We had obviously during covid. What happened was people didn't want to go in and get a burrito and make They don't want to sit there for five minutes. Make freedom so chapultepec turn to us said we want to build an automation that somebody could come into their mobile device to any messenger front facebook. I message app and we want to configure a burrito and or whatever they want and they built. We built this Automation called pepper. It's called pepper and you can communicate with pepper. And then you show up at the door and the handed to you. And so that's the poultry. One we've got David's bridal which also people didn't want to come and people get married but do you want to go and sit in the store and try and addressing the one of the largest bridal companies in the world. We automated looking at different things for your body type for your style making an appointment. So you're the only one that's in that store. Don't have a crowd in the store. We built all that. This is just examples during kovin but every one of our customers get the ability to create a conversational experience. That's unique to them. And that's what makes commerce Yeah i i could certainly see the argument that linear text back and forth actually has potentially less less opportunity for really robust customization than you know. Really fancy dancy website. But but i get where you're where you're coming from. I think that there is like a. There's a certain flavor of the brand that you get from talking that maybe you wouldn't get from from a website and obviously what you're saying is that we can tailor that of course with a website. There's a lot we can do with color and features and video and whatever but certainly there's personalization on the conversation side. I could kind of see arguments on both sides there with respect to working with these big brands again. You're you're dropping some pretty pretty big names here. Names of almost everybody listening in has heard of what does it look like to set up these unique systems for them because obviously chipotle's use case which by the way feels very accessible. The number of burritos you can build is not unlimited right as opposed you guys work with delta airlines. The number of things i can complain about to my airline is. There's probably two dozen. You could tackle off the cuff. But but there's gotta be another four hundred that are just we're handing this to a human being but cipolla feels. Wow that feels like almost like dominoes. Chat bot was pretty popular. Winning hundred flowers was doing some stuff. Because there's only so many purchase options but when you go into different clients you got big airlines. You got these restaurant chains. What's that process of really working with them. Because there's got to be a bespoke build out part. You got your core platform you guys are able to use. You have a tremendous amount of data and a lot of staff obviously which it looked like to hop into these big brands and build out. Something that really drives value for our platform conversational cloud. We really broken into three areas in and around the three areas of need when you're looking at scale automation. One is the intent. We called intent manager in its technology that ingests all the conversations and then organizes the intense. So we talk about intense anti-business. What is it consumers. They haven't intention to do something with you. They want to buy something. They wanna customer care question answered and that's an intention and we call that technology intent so we organized the intense and it turns out as we all know. We all asking and attentively. So i may ask a bill differently than you do. But the technologists differences aggregate them. And then what you get to see a list of all the intense in your business. And what are the contents and where the mid level. I'm usually what we say. Let's go solve the top intense bam one and is thirty percent of all the voice calls. You're having

Intel Pops, VMWare Drops (For The Same Reason)
"We're going to start with some surprising news from intel. Ceo bob swan is stepping down. In mid february in june of twenty eighteen he was appointed interim ceo of intel in late january of twenty. Nine thousand nine. The interim tag was removed but suffice to say swan has faced a number of challenges over the ensuing two years and he is on his way out. Moving into the corner. Office is pat gelsinger. Who is currently the ceo of vm. Ware and for anyone wondering what. The investing world thinks of all of these moves. Shares of vm. Ware down six percent this morning and shares of intel up eight percent. Yeah so you've got gelsinger who previously had been at intel As the chief technology officer and of course swan came up and was promoted interim and then permanency. Oh having been the cfo. So i think one of the Takeaways that one can take here is that this is perceived to be a technology issue And the solution comes into Comes from technology Not from financial expertise I don't think there's any accusations that that's one wasn't getting the job done from you. Know the numbers point. It's day are falling behind on the technology and it's time to make a change. Yeah i mean you think about everything. That's happened with them. Over the last couple of years we've talked on this show about. Amd continuing to eat into intel's market share. You know apple though. The longtime partnership that intel apple ended after fifteen years. So i understand why shares of intel would be up on bob swan leaving. That said i d. Do you think there's maybe a little like when you take these two together when you take the let's just call it. Fifteen percent difference between the rise in intel and the drop vm. Where do you think it's a little overstated. And the reason. I ask that is because guessing was. Ceo of vm. Ware for eight. Plus years the stock up about thirty percent over the entire. Let's call it eight and a quarter span of his tenure as ceo. So it's not like vm. Ware shares were setting the world on fire under the tenure of pat gelsinger. Yeah i don't know that The world is looking at vm. Ware and saying how they ever replicate What they've been able to accomplish with with anybody else in that role But it may be a look. He's a commodity value enough that intel which despite going not not going nowhere as a stock for twenty years but going down and then most of the way back up. But that's that's what you're talking about twenty years of long-term buy and hold nothingness if you got in sort of at the top back in two thousand and i think that it's fair. Question to ask. Is whether vm. Ware is losing nearly as much as intel is hopefully gaining here I think that they change is being made at all is going to be. Maybe the lion's share of the stock movement today on intel if i had to just wildly guests Through the markets actions. You've got third point having been pushing for changes From intel intel says. It's got nothing to do with that nothing to do with you. Know the pressure. We've been getting from third point. This is this is all independent of that pressure. I don't think that's the case. And i think that Any change is going to going to explain a bump in intel at this point
A preview of Samsung's smartphone event
"It should come as no surprise that we all of our smartphones which is why anytime a new device comes out while is usually pretty excited always tracks a lot of attention. And we're supposed to be getting that this week right right correct brett later this week on thursday at ten. Am eastern time. Samsung will unveil its new mobile lineup. And this is all kind of part of the cas stuff and everybody can watch that on. Samsung youtube page We have links to that. In our recent stories on usa today dot com. And we'll be covering it so far. What we know is were you expect to see new models in the galaxy lineup. Like an s twenty one. Twenty one plus twenty. Twenty-one ultra what we don't know is whether they'll be a new note fablet the sites track samsun news kind of like you and i tracked. Sports teams trades Have also found evidence that suggest. This wave galaxy phones might be slightly cheaper at the outset in the twenty was if that is true it could help samsung expand. Its market share in case. You don't know all ready. The global leader in smartphone sales with twenty two percent of the market up from twenty one percent a year ago according to research firm strategy analytics here in the us samsung marketshare actually grew to thirty four percent in the third quarter of two thousand twenty while apples dipped from thirty six to thirty percent. So this could be an interesting Smartphone battle coming up here in the months ahead. Anything you're looking to find out from samsung brett. I'm always curious what they're gonna do to kind of push push things forward in terms of innovation on smartphones Every year it gets harder and harder. Because there's only so much you can do with the device that you have and even five years ago if felt like you were seeing some some noticeable upgrades and changes to how your phone work and it seems like the further along we get. It's almost becomes harder. It seems to like find new in different reasons for you to own this new latest smartphone. some really curious what and samsung has always been pretty good about introducing some interesting ways to leverage your smartphone. And i'm really curious what those are But yeah it should be fun. I think it's always interesting to see and samsung in particular has always fascinating because of all the android phone makers. They seem to one that. Be the one that has stood out the most as far as being arrival to the iphone And any time you hear anyone with an android phone in most cases it's galaxy phone. So i mean they've done a really good job positioning themselves as that rival and i'll be interested to see what new ways They can push the smartphone for smartphones as it is
Who is underpricing Roblox?
"Which filed to go public last year was going to debut as any said before the year some. Ipo's went out that were rather exuberantly received. And is that it. Whoa whoa whoa hold on. Because robots was going to let a lot of shareholders sell their shares at the ipo price in the offering and they didn't those shares me miss price fair enough so what they've done is they have raised a five hundred twenty million dollars series. H at eight twenty nine point five billion dollars valuation effectively replacing what they would have done in the ipo raise. And then they're going to direct list. So everyone will be unburdened in able to sell their shares. That they'd like to their experience the traditional ipo process and into the blocks brand a sufficiently large drive interest in the company. Now guys we've all heard ad nauseam complaints from adventure. Classes danny's old stomping grounds. That banks mismanaging. Ipo's underpricing them and rewarding their clients essentially with free money. Here's my question now. Roadblocks us at a price for itself thousand nine point five billion. What do we say out. And it's worth thirty five billion the first day won't they also have yet again mistrial. Peo- does this situation. This new solution actually fix anything. I think one of the big challenges. They faced the raises past brown from driessen. In february twenty twenty it was valued at four billion and they raise one hundred fifty million bucks with tiny percentage. and what. you're seeing the exact same thing this time with the series h five hundred twenty million at twenty nine point five billion valuation one point seven percent solution. So it's very tiny. But i think what they wanted to do was sent a very strong signal to the market of. Here's where we see the price. Today there are investors who are investing at this price. Last price was four billion. This is thirty. And i think they wanted to market support for the argument that they should be valued at this price. I don't think they looked at a lot of the other things on the market. And like wow. It's really hot. That was the story line. And i just. I'm very skeptical. But i think this is a proof point of saying look. There is actually market depth at these prices. And it sets the tone of the ipo more strongly than if they had just gone out. Kind of blindly. When we're i want to get into take on this but like we hear a lot of complaints from these about bankers mispricing. Startups andriessen bought a bunch of shares from roadblocks earlier in twenty twenty out of four billion dollar valuation. Now it's worth thirty. That's seven and a half times as much. Who's underpricing roadblocks. Here is that the bankers. Or is it andriessen horowitz. I have a suspicion. That it's the bbc's. I think it's amazing that we never talked about that. We always say. Oh the cow. Well the vc's did not dramatically underpriced screwing the employees who are doing the work out of equity and a fair representation for the show when you see these numbers. I know you're more early stage person. But how does this make you feel one. That's awesome framing alex. So i love that. I thought about snowflake when i saw robots giving that twenty nine point billion number when snowflake was planning to go public at its last raise it was valued at twelve point. Five billion obviously one of the most successful. Ipo of twenty twenty its market cap on. A went out was thirty three point. Seven billion a huge difference. And i think maybe roe is feeling in some ways. Like snowflake miss price. Let's just feel that confident about ourselves. I don't know if that's a fair enough. Compared because i'm sure they're very different businesses but if robots is misplaced and a lot bigger it will also be one of the most successful. Ipo of all time. The new price for robotics is crazy over you. I think one of the big questions we have to ask what's flow the ipo. Look at this. And i got his ms price. Well at a certain point of you're only doing one point six percent solution like of course you want to get you want to nail it perfectly. But the reality is if you're only bloating one point six percent who cares the question at the. Are you floating fiber shares ten percent of the shares thirty percent of the shares. Because that to me is a huge difference compared to some of these earlier rounds where the delusion is much smaller. Yeah for sure. And one thing we've seen just circle back to the point of ipo's being cuoco. Mis-priced is a lot of companies have had a very thin flow and start to trade and so you've seen asymmetric demand from retail investors compared to very very limited shares available which of course ratchets up the initial trading price feeding fodder into the argument. That bankers are better pricing. And this is not to defend bankers. The point is this. it's not like everything is as cut and dry as fits into a tweet. That's what i'll say just to be clear. Andriessen is making the most noise about myspace. Ipo's it's actually benchmark. Don't want to conflate everybody in my head is just vc's but it's worth noting that girly for border a bit worker less active invest. Whatever he is america's area go.
Bitcoin Will One Day Hit $1 Million
"Bitcoin blowing through new records today. The crypto currency gaining thirty three percent. This week alone in case you missed it. Wargin creeks anthony. Poblano join us last night here on fast. Listen to what he said about. Bitcoin is headed. If you really think about the technology world we talk about ten x improvement props. Bitcoin is at least ten x better than gold in every way. And so i think that if you just think of a bitcoin product that has to expedite and mortgage cap kind of follows that that would put bitcoin at a million dollars. Coin right just two golds market cap in case you thought you heard wrong. That's a million dollars. A coin became. We're specifically talking about j. p. morgan's known on on Bitcoin from earlier in the week and they were making the point that there have been outflows from gold inflows. Bitcoin as bitcoin has ramped and so the notion is that bitcoin would be a replacement. Are you on board that because that seems to be the main driver these days For the bullish thesis on bitcoin. Yeah i think listen. It's digital goal that narrative has taken off this year among the institutional community and just to put a couple of numbers around that so we have gold. Roughly it's market. It's total value is about ten trillion bitcoins out about seven hundred billion eight hundred billion right now. That jp morgan not talked about if all of the money came out of gold into bitcoin. That would be somewhere around two point seven trillion dollars. So that's probably almost. What a quadruple from the price. From where we all right now maybe a little bit more a quadruple puts you at j. p. morgan's price at one hundred and forty six thousand. So it's not necessarily a reasonable. My only concern is when you you know. And i think pop made a great point. My concern is when you have these these these big upside targets then. People say hey. I'm gonna just going load into it here and i just. I've been doing it for years. But i remind people. Bitcoin has months where it's down thirty forty percent so you could buy a forty thousand today and watch it go to twenty thousand and that would not be unusual and we should make the point to that. Anthony made clear that you could see wild swings on the way to a million dollars a point up twenty percent or down twenty percent or thirty percent for that matter. Cape fat kate. I imagine that your clients are inquiring. I mean this has got to be on everybody's mind so how. How do you approach that honestly. Melissa bitcoin is not my joint jealous of the people who are in. It made a lot of money. I don't get. It doesn't make a lot of sense to me and why bitcoin if you say cryptocurrency generally cage supply-and-demand. If bitcoin is doing that well it will attract other crypto currencies. So i'm gonna sit on the sidelines on this one.
Using Computational Discovery to Build Better Immunotherapies
"Team. Thanks for joining us dan. We're gonna talk about immunotherapy compuserve and its efforts to pursue novel targets for ahmed cancer types. Perhaps we can been gin with the idea of checkpoint inhibitors what are they. And how do they work. He'd be taurus. Are actually proteins modulating the immune system responds in the context of fay affair. Kasim yuna therapy. It was identified. There is a crosstalk between immune cells and and the cancer. This crosstalk is being done through immune checkpoint and and usually these are inhibiting the immune system response to the to the cancer to the cancer cells and and the drugs the few drugs that are out there that are dressing these same immune checkpoint skin to treat cancer. Patients are actually am inhibiting. The inhibition exerted by immune checkpoint on the cancer cells in diff- therefore allowing the immune system to be stimulated and actually fight the cancer. This has been a a real revolution in cancer. Care but these still have limited efficacy. How how effective are these therapies at treating cancer today as of today about twenty to thirty percent of the patient population of the cancer patients are responsive to these drugs. It is increasing with time. We're more proven are being done with the current in hebrew tours. But i have to say that you know. Cancer is a movie factoria disease and and it's actually a collection of many different diseases and we're not in a situation where one treatment fits all basically declined immune checkpoint a drugs are addressing only few number drug targets and they're still many mechanisms that need to be a still a explored and and identified and drugs need to be developed in order to address the various mechanisms of action by which the kansas are actually avoiding the immune system. And here's actually that were. Competent fits in and see what we do. Discover new drug targets and developer first in class drugs to address. These struck targets copy. Jen has developed a computational based drug discovery platform. What is the platform. And how does it work. So the platform is is basically based on twenty years a fan and know how that was built at computation with being a computational discovery company for many years and then after we established a critical mass of discovery capabilities. We turn to be to. We are today. Pretty discovery and development company in generale with built computer systems tucson algorithms in order to be able to address the challenge of new drug targets discovery. And you biological halfway discovery. Identify new drug targets is a is a is a very complex isn't f. fourteens. Multiday mentioned effort and for that we had to develop a multiple systems. We've built a lot of know-how in the company and we've built a Expertise in what is called multi onyx analysis. We're not limiting our platform to a specific data type or a specific technology. Actually we're very flexible. Tools and systems an algorithms are really designed to address multiple data sources multiple data technologies and. This is because this is multifactorial and complex and filled to work in. An all of these are augmented with human expertise that we have in the company in the last twenty years. How do the targets. You've discovered differ from the targets that today's checkpoint inhibitors go after and it's very good question. Actually it's not very different in terms of you know still it's checkpoint but i think that the nature of checkpoints one as compared to the others those that are known and those that we discovered these are proteins. That are very different from one. Another so yes all of them. At least those are defined as negative customer tour costing military checkpoints. They're all inhibiting the immune system response against the cancer. But they're doing it in different ways and what we discovered is as i said you know the checkpoints are now have been translated to drugs that are in the market. A really only very few. I think about three or sociology for pd one. Pedia want and what we discovered. Is you know you biological pathways debts allowed us to discover new immune. Checkpoint that are still inhibiting the immune system response against the cancer but in a different way a different mechanism and this allows us to be able to develop hopefully no new treatments solutions. That will address those cancer patients the not responsive to the current checkpoint inhibitors check on earth. What are the issues with. Existing immunotherapy is the ability of cancers to develop resistance. Where are you doing to address that issue so this is actually exactly what we're trying to do. Am that in cancer. Immunotherapy is there are two issues right there. Ease the patients that are not responsive in does that with time that are developing what is called acquired resistance. We're we're trying to do in. The company is to try and focus on those biological pathways that we believe would address those patients that are not responsive to the current checkpoint blockade. So they're in different ways with different. Mechanism does cancers data and actually deliver a different solution to the problem. And this will were trying to work on. You know the leading the leading drug that is in development at is now owning phase one studies and we have owning michel data in the clinic but the days actually am supporting designs behind. We discovered so we discovered a completely new biological pathway identified sen typically that it is addressing am in. You am a new mechanism that still this family of immune checkpoint. The preclinical data suggested that it should address
Alibaba founder Jack Ma is lying low for the time being, but he's not missing
"Stock just jumped five percent yesterday on word. Their ceo is not dead. Wow this year. The huge fundamental difference of doing business in china versus the united states. All right so jacqueline. You're talking here about the other jack jack. Ma former teacher present billionaire current location. Jack of jack ma. The former english teacher jack ma. He is a hard worker seventeen miles a day on a bike uphill to learn english. Both ways he also applied for job at kfc twenty three other people and he was the only one who didn't get the job. So what we're saying is jack. Ma falls off his bike. He gets back on the bike and then he founded alibaba twenty one years ago and that became the amazon of china. Now we mentioned jack mas hard working he actually evangelize is the nine nine six workweek which is nine. Am tonight pm. Six days a week for a total of seventy two hours and sounds absolutely awful opposite of the four day workweek way. Bigger the four day workweek knackers today. You could argue. That alibaba is more innovative. Then america's amazon. Yeah it's basically it's google. It's amazon it's fedex. It's pay pal all that rolled into one with a nice bow on an app alibaba stock however is down thirty percents since october on some really bizarre and kind of scary news all right. So this one's kind of strange. It all started back in october. When ant financial a different company the pay pal of china was prepping for the biggest. Ipo effort alibaba under the leadership of jack ma. They invested early in aunt group because they saw the need for digital payments in the ecommerce future so alibaba owned thirty percent of aunt. So anti peo- was going to be a big payday for alibaba. therefore jack ma. that's because aunt has one billion customers. They offer every financial service imaginable. He has eight. It's pretty much like the pizza hut buffet for fintechs picture. The little kale in between all the cottage is when jack ma made a fatal mistake he criticized. The chinese. Government does knackers in the us. You perfectly are allowed to criticize the government. Actually do it all the time. Even though you're not a huge fan of the damage that's okay not everyone's a fan of the dam and you're allowed to complain about the dmv because you are protected by the first amendment of the constitution freedom of speech though not a write in china. That's why it was a big deal in october. When jack ma at a conference during a speech criticized chinese regulators for stifling tech innovation with outdated regulation get this is the result the ant. Ipo that huge biggest ipo ever. It was blocked by authorities. And they called in jack ma for questioning they wanted to make an example of him speaking out against china so they actually ordered group to return to their payment origins. Because of what. Jack ma set and jack ma hasn't been seen in public since then and for good measure. The chinese government decided to launch an antitrust investigation against alibaba. After jack ma said what he said. Oh it's drop alibaba stock mar- oh and by the way w just told cnbc. Jack ma is alive. He's just laying low right now keeping a low profile. We're glad to hear that he's alive. But it's a little strange for a stock to jump because he's alive fleet
TSLA is The Chosen One Says Morgan Stanley, Price Target to $810
"Everybody rob power here and today. We're talking about a new note on tesla's stock from morgan stanley. They have increased their price targets significantly. Today after hours. We also have some news on the full. Self-driving beta report on monowai gross margins from china and some news that riven may be raising some more capital taking a look at the stock tussle. Today finished up zero point seven percent to seven hundred and thirty five dollars eleven cents that actually did trail the nasdaq which was up about one percent. But hereafter hours worth. Things have started to get more interesting. After morgan stanley released their updated tussle note. Tesla has jumped by about ten to fifteen dollars. One and a half two percent to read around seven hundred fifty dollars per share otherwise news on tesla was fairly light today. So we're gonna spend most of our time here looking at that note. And as i always say when we look at analyst notes a lot of this is just contextual and it gives us good jumping off points for discussion and things like this also gives us good perspective and insight into the kind of information. That's being circulated around the street. So right off the bat here. This morgan stanley note comes with a great headline. They title the no quote the chosen. One tesla industrializes internet of cars target two eight hundred and ten dollars and quote. That is a huge fifty percent increase over the previous price. Target of five hundred and forty dollars per share. They write quote. We update our forecasts and long-term assumptions. Following better-than-expected cue for deliveries sixty one percent year over year growth and five billion dollar capris raising twenty thirty volume to five point. Zero million units versus three point eight million and taking the price target two hundred ten dollars. Tesla is richly valued for a reason reiterate overweight and quote. Okay so what has changed. Here with morgan stanley's assumptions that has led to this fifty percent price targeted increase while they say they had better than expected volume this year. You four specifically. There's been a significant capillaries. And of course tesla was added to the s. and p. five hundred. So they beat morgan stanley's projection. They have risked and they've been added the s. and p. five hundred which has reduced the float effectively reducing the supply of tesla shares as for the actual changes to their model driving this higher price target. They say that quote the majority of the price target increase comes from the impact of our higher volume assumptions in our model and quote as i said they have increased their twenty thirty delivery forecast from three point. Eight million vehicles to five point two million vehicles and they say that they have now added to factories to their forecast for twenty thirty bringing their total tesla. Plant count to ten. I think that factory count is actually probably pretty close but that would only be you know. Five hundred eighty thousand vehicles per factory by twenty thirty. But it's become very clear. That tesla actually has ambitions of producing two million vehicles or so per factory per year. At least in the case of texas and dig your berlin shanghai. They've said one million plus so even just those factories plus fremont if can hit their production targets in those factories. Gets you to more than five. Point two million that jonas projecting here for twenty thirty as for their earlier year forecasts for twenty twenty one they have increased their projection from seven hundred seventy eight thousand previously now to seven hundred ninety two thousand and as a reminder just as recently as july they had actually been projecting just six hundred and twenty thousand four twenty twenty one so they've actually up that by about thirty percent in just the last six months for twenty twenty two the forecasting one point one five million. I'm not sure what that was previously for. Twenty twenty three. Then they are up from one point. Three five million previously now to one point seven million the fun thing about these increased volume targets from morgan stanley. Is that a few months ago. They did what they called. A great tesla rating. They started including things like mobility services as a recurring revenue from autonomy in their price target. So they're sort of having this ongoing opera moment this year. That as they now add vehicle volume into their forecast they now have to add additional services and revenue margin as well and that is where the game changes in terms of valuation for tusla. And the thing is you. Don't even need a fully autonomous robot taxi type of service to start adding that services revenue in when tesla's starts offering full self driving as a subscription. I think that is going to open a lot. Of analyst is to how tesla's business model is structured and will be increasingly structured going forward leveraging software. It's already easy to say. As i've said in the past that if you want to compare valuations show me another automaker that is selling a ten thousand dollar software option then we can make those comparisons but because that is all sort of right now lumped into the same revenue the same margin line on tussles earnings. People just aren't willing to recognize that yet as a separate line of business when tesla's starts offering full self driving a subscription even if they don't break that out on their earnings that forces a change in how analysts are forecasting and modeling tesla they have to start forecasting recurring high-margin revenue right. Now that's basically all just being pulled forward into that simple ten thousand dollar option which is great but it also makes it easier to ignore the other factor making it easier to ignore right now. Is that a big portion of that is still currently deferred revenue. So it's not actually showing up in earnings. But as tessa delivers more features this year less of that is going to be deferred tussles valuation in and of itself is playing a role here too because it has become so massive analysts have to cover this. They have to cover well. They're getting more and more resources to cover it. They're getting more and more questions as tesla's been added to the s. and p. five hundred those benchmarked funds managers. They need to know what to do with the stock so the coverage is just getting more and more intense and again because the evaluation hide they're going to be a lot of analysts running numbers sort of back testing against that valuation. Saying okay to justify this. This is what needs to happen for the company.
How to Deliver a 7-Star Experience for Clients
"So just to give people like a story so for me. Whenever i'm at the four seasons the thing i love about it is i can take out my phone and order shifts guacamole and all this stuff and it just shows up to the room. I don't need to interact with anybody. Wanna talk to anybody. The food just appears right and sometimes go above and beyond they'll give me like a fruit basket the put some wine and all that cool stuff right. That's going a little above and beyond mr sue. Can i help you with this. Just a little bit right. Like not calling me. Neil or not. Eric reid is mr sue and say that feels like so professional and everything looks really nice tidy. Let's talk about seven star experience. Because i got this concept from airbnb and you know seven star. We're talking about just to give you an example. Let's say neil stays at a hotel and neil. Who's like your favorite band or was your favorite brand Experienced story let's do that. Let's do that. I can't so. I used to live at the mandarin oriental and las vegas There for many many years. I need someone who also lived there find from vegas to los angeles in los angeles during international when they arrived in los angeles. They already have their connection flight. They forgot their passports. Passport was in vegas so they call the cons. Here's the concierge. Had one of the door. People go into their place get their pastor. They told them where it was literally hopped on a plane delivered to him in lax. Straight up games like even crazier okay. So seven star or even nine star would be like. Let's say your favourite dj in your room. Mike spinning or something like that. They roll out the red carpet. Your favorite foods waiting right there. Maybe it's imported from europe or something. They just fluid in right. That is seven star. But i think if you want to think about how this five seven nine star experience you have to outline what three stars five stars looks like and you have to think about okay. How do i go above and beyond to make it a seven. How do i have to go above and beyond for the next one right. And that's the key. Eric just mentioned you had to go above and beyond. I remember talking to a client one time and they hurt us to grow their s traffic. When we're doing a good job vessel. Traffic was growing not as fast as one. But it never as fast as i want and as we're growing at on the phone with founder. Hey i don't want overstep my boundaries. But you know my team can cover the seo stuff separately after this call and they will. And i'm like. I will not do something different on this call. That just really ran on like just hear me out. And let's just go along with it and tell me what happens after thirty days in there like okay so i ended up breaking out on the phone everything that was wrong with their website when it came to conversion rate optimization standpoint and have contract. I'm like look you're trying to get resolved to your start your shot for cash. Who cares what's in your contract. I'm just gonna tell you right now. High-protein going implement this six things that are going to boost your conversion Really want you to implement the minority. And i went down through that list. They did and then within a month and a half to two months because it took him a little bit longer to get it out their conversion rate went up a bit more than thirty percent at that point business much more profitable. There were happy as your trackable much more profitable and they're like thank you. You'd have to like what we owe you. Nothing unlike your businesses wasn't gonna grow as you want it because it was really messed up on. The conversion asks a wanted to fix that i and they were happy and to me that's going above and beyond where i didn't have to. Yeah and those of you that might be wondering okay
WSJ's Personal Tech Team Makes Their 2021 Predictions
"Okay. So we mentioned all that pandemic tack what has staying power. What's gonna stick around. I think good video calling stays or at least gets better and twenty twenty one. I've written a lot this year. About how crappy webcams are on laptops. And i think we will see improvements in two thousand twenty one at least on the built in hardware on laptops and computers. I think idea that we We we will return to something and probably start to have more in person meetings again. But i do not think the concept of video calling or even just taking video calls instead of regular phone calls is to go away. I think grocery delivery stays. I think a lot more people are willing to pay the four or five dollars extra for milk in order to save our off of shopping parking dealing with the woman number of choices in the in the grocery store and further to that i think that i think a lot of the e commerce days so it's easy if you're younger person i think like who wasn't using amazon but when you look at the numbers the option of especially for older folks has been really astonishing gets in certain segments from lack thirty percent of people above the sixty five using certain types of a delivery for various homegoods to seventy five percent. And we've talked about the mask bone before. Does that stick around do products like that. Stick around. I think masks are going to stay. I think we are going to see a big transition especially in cities to people wearing masks so things like mask phone where you can take a phone call and actually have the microphone inside the mask and sound a little bit better. Might be something that stays. I still think that's a pretty niche product. I don't think everyone's running out to buy a fifty dollar mask tech solutions that help you. Sanitizer disinfect your products. Or your home. The things around your home or even your gadgets like your phone those will also continue to be popular. We expect to see a couple of those at the consumer electronics. Show coming up in january of already. Gotten a number of pitches about that kind of tax. So i think that in twenty twenty one is people start to leave their homes more that that type of tech or that kind of solution will will be needed and of course one thing that's been on the rise this year is streaming services and at home entertainment options. Do you are on the show last year and talk about the explosion of new services coming on the scene and now they're all here and the whole cost at least a few bucks and i don't know about you guys but i'm definitely not willing to pay for all of them so what happens in the next year or how does this shakeout the yes you. People will narrow down their subscriptions. But i think these are going to get even more expensive and twenty twenty one. I think subscriptions as a whole. We're gonna see more price hikes. The big model around subscriptions is recurring revenue. So you are already continuing to pay company. Every month for whatever service they provide but then they start adding features in and so then they want you to pay more for them and we're starting to see that Whether it was netflix which seems to raise their prices. Every two weeks We've seen it around. Google starting to charge for their photos. Solution only gonna continue
Cheques, imbalances: Americas fraught stimulus
"America's house of representatives passed another version of stimulus bill yesterday. This one promising. Two thousand dollar checks to the majority of americans use would make a difference in the lives of americans who are facing the greatest uncertainty that they've experienced for many of them in their lifetime. It's unclear if the measure will pass in the senate making it yet another twist in a last minute. Saga to provide economic assistance to millions of struggling american workers and businesses the original two point three trillion dollar spending package included nine hundred billion dollars for pandemic relief in addition to funding the federal government for the next year. They was hastily negotiated in the run-up to christmas by a bipartisan group including president. Trump's treasury secretary steve mnuchin but after it was passed by the house and the senate. Mr trump criticized the bill saying it didn't do enough to help. Ordinary americans in really is a disgrace for example among the more than five thousand pages in this bill in the end. He didn't make good on his threat to veto the legislation on sunday but he demanded another congressional vote on increasing the value of the stimulus checks. A measure supported by many more democrats than republicans. I worry that this wapping four. Hundred and sixty. Three billion dollars won't do what's needed stimulate the economy or get the jobless back to work. Whatever the outcome the relief couldn't be more needed. Government has been deadlocked on the matter for months and in just over three weeks. It'll be president. Joe biden who inherited the budget. The stimulus plans and the problems brought about by all the footdragging. Congress rarely compromises these days injuries. Cologne is the economists. Washington correspondent and it was truly a compromise measure. That will do some good I think for the american people. So what's in the bill actually been passed by both houses and signed by president trump. the new sumo's spill that president trump signed into law includes a couple of important provision. One of which is another round of direct checks civil. Go to americans. These are going to be half as big as the ones that were passed in march so these will be six hundred dollars per person as opposed to twelve hundred and there's also going to be a new federal top in unemployment benefits. Most americans have beginning six hundred dollars a week until those benefits expired back in august. The new benefits are going to last for eleven weeks and they will be about three hundred dollars per week. And there's a few other things it's very long. Bill is fifty six hundred pages. Almost that was negotiated very much at the last minute. Among the more important parts are another three hundred billion or so which are going to be allocated for the payment protection program which subsidizes businesses to make sure that they don't have fire people and why the president trump had Such a hard time signing why the delay. That's an interesting question. Depends on how generous he wanted to the president. Many people pointed out the seeming lack of logic about refusing to sign a bill that had been negotiated with his administration. Nancy pelosi of negotiating with steve mnuchin. The treasury secretary about the contours of the bill and this compromise was was forged with mitch. Mcconnell the republican leader in the senate there had been little indication before the bill was actually passed that donald trump had match of objection to it wants. It came to his desk. He thought of the bill was pathetic and that it needed to have much more generous person check but ultimately donald trump decided not to hold up the bill and and this is a relief package that americans have really been waiting some time for. Yeah absolutely the initial cares. Act was a huge injection of stimulus. But it was passed all the way back in march and a lot of the major provisions of the cares act expired back in august and interestingly because that was more than two trillion dollar bill what you saw in the first month of the pandemic was actually pretty solid progress against already in america. You saw a twenty five percent reduction from its pre pandemic levels and what you've seen since the expiration of those benefits is a very fast resurgent so all of those gains in poverty reduction have been Erase this point and if you look at other indicators of hardship whether it's the sheriff families who say that they can't afford food thirteen percent of american families right now are saying that they have not had enough to eat in the last week from the latest census bureau. Polls you see thirty percent of americans who are renting say that they have little to no confidence that they will be able to pay next month's rent and those measures that we've been tracking have gone up significantly in the past couple of months and put this into some context. How does this This relief package on the whole compare with with similar ones offered by other countries britain germany. And so on so at this point america. We'll have done over three trillion dollars of direct stimulus. And if you compare. America to other countries on the basis of how much money does it immediately inject into the economy. America looks fairly outstanding. Where america doesn't look as generous on the stimulus front is on its guarantee. Liabilities made with businesses so european countries are much more likely to guarantee loans use the central bank much more than america has used the fed as part of their strategy for addressing similar. So depending on whether or not you think. Direct relief to americans is more important You could say that america's really well if you think that subsidising businesses and making sure that they stay open is the vital point of covid relief that you could say that the europeans have done better but another facet of this was that the bill apparently contains what president trump called the pork but a lot of provisions that aren't sort of directly related in that way it does and that's in part because it was attached to the bill that keeps the government open in funded for the next year and that obviously has a lot of unrelated provisions because it is the bill that funds entire federal government. You know there are measures on a teddy roosevelt presidential library. Independent commission to oversee horse racing. Racine those kinds of things have been snuck in but also some provisions that might not have been obviously related to covid but that are probably good like an end to the practice of surprise billing which is basically where you go to a hospital. That's in your insurance network. You're treated by dr who is affiliated with a different network and you get a very large bill and all this is happening of course in the in the twilight of mr trump's presidency. Where does this leave. Joe biden as as he starts to come in this really sets the initial conditions for joe biden's presidency a lot of the unemployment benefits for example will expire in mid march which will mean that there will be some period of renegotiation. We saw chuck schumer. Who is the democratic leader in the senate say that the bill will only partially cover some of the depths that americans are in right now economically. Unfortunately the troubles are so deep. The abysses so long that we need more and this is just a first step. This is an emergency. We need a second bill to continue. So that's going to set up a new challenge for them in the opening days of the administration when biden would probably rather try and pursue a big legislative victory like infrastructure. Or something else. A lot of it is gonna turn on what happens in the upcoming senate races in georgia. The runoffs will decide the last two seasons senate and that will determine whether or not democrats or republicans control it if republicans keep those seats and democrats. Don't have control of the senate. I think it's probably quite likely that this is the last big stimulus measure that americans are gonna see addressed. Thank you very much for your time. Thanks so much for having
NBA looks to sports betting to fill the gap
"The nba season kicked off with a bang last night. The brooklyn nets beat the golden state warriors. One thousand five hundred ninety nine in the first game of the season with no fans in the stands looking likely anytime soon. The league is looking at new media strategies and sports betting to fill the gap and they aren't the only league doing so. How could that look. Our next guest has ideas. Let's bring in paul rebel. Founder the premier lacrosse league Paul great to see you again. Of course. The pl just merged with major league lacrosse. You say that this provides a singular destination for fans. I would imagine this. This gives the sport an advantage as well in terms of selling itself whether it be media coverage or streaming rights or any other kind of rights to carry the games. Yeah absolutely it's back. Happy holidays I think with sports in particular the ability to coalesce that have a singular message is important and for us when we look at future road profitability and just larger revenue Looking at the commercial opportunity of on now entering our third season twenty years or pro across history. That's looking like close to four thousand hours of twenty years of games at the mo of played that we can provide streaming service package as well as part of the announced we said we will get span to eighteen. Which is additional commercial assets and market now and as we continue to grow. We'll catch up to the legacy leaks. Hey paul dan great to have you back but in congrats on the deal. Quick one for you here you guys. You had that that bubble season this past summer very successful you know it was all over. Nbc all their properties. That sort of thing. Obviously no fans of how important was the sports gambling integration. You guys had done a deal with draft kings was that did that help engagement. And do you see that as a really important part of the offering the media offering going forward. Yeah it's huge allow. The sports properties have learned that we need to be more nimble. And not as reliant as call it major league baseball the traditional path to building a sports league on ticket sales the nba. What you reference malas typically rely on twenty or thirty percents of their revenue on tickets were looking at a modern sports age where it's meteorite sponsorship now sports betting merchandise in many cases the epl leapfrogs ticket sales and on the sports betting front. Dan we did a deal trap games last year and it was huge. I think what the sports betting this new gaming offers looking at now is live broadcast. Live odd integration And we're seeing networks now. Cut deals with gaming operators. If you look at espn's draft or mdc in points that so the properties are going to wedge their way and that's part one part two is i think in twenty twenty two to twenty twenty one. We're going to start seeing the entrance of bio data Related to players. So where will technology like lou on players that integrated the broadcast experience leaning more viewership and a larger handle sports ban in october. Three billion dollars legally registered. So we'll see that number continued to grow and more league revenue opportunity and board network revenue opportunity into twenty twenty
XRP, The 3rd Biggest Cryptocurrency Might Be In Big Trouble
"The sec has indeed gone ahead and sued ripple. Labs it's ceo. Brad garland house and chairman. Chris larson alleging that they violated federal securities laws by selling x. p. to retail customers. This is actually a bigger deal than i thought it might actually lead to the delisting of x. Rpg from major crypto currency exchanges the price of x. p. is down over thirty percent at the time of this writing quoting coin desk according to a lawsuit filed tuesday ripple raised one point three billion dollars over a seven-year period to retail investors through its sale of sarpi on an ongoing basis. Ripple ceo brad garland house announced monday. That the sec had told his company of the impending lawsuit and published the payment firms wells response a document that seeks to tell the sec wise. Certain activity did not violate us securities laws. The san francisco based fintech firm has long maintained that x. p. the cryptocurrency is separate from the company the cryptocurrency was often referred to as ripple through two thousand eighteen and shared logo with the company. Until later that year the impact could be wide ranging. Several exchanges list are in the us with only one deciding to delist the cryptocurrency ahead of the tuesday lawsuit. If the sec prevails platforms that continued to list. The crypto may have to register as securities exchanges according to the complaint which names ceo. Brad garland house and chairman. Chris larson in addition to ripple labs as defendants ripple violated sections. Five am five. C of the securities act of nineteen thirty three by failing to register x rpi as a security or seeking an exemption quote over a long unregistered offering securities. Ripple was able to raise at least one point three eight billion dollars by selling p. Without providing the type of financial and managerial information typically provided in registration statements and subsequent periodic and current filings the filing said quote ripple use this money to fund its operations without disclosing how it was doing so or the full extent of its payments to others to assist in its efforts to develop the use for x. Rpi and maintain excerpt secondary trading markets and quote. So it turns out that there actually is precedent for the sec sort of inflicting mortal investigations on a crypto currency. And not good precedent. If you're ripple remember excerpt was the third largest cryptocurrency by market cap quoting fiona kobayashi on twitter. Those of you saying the sec suit on ripple will not affect p have a. Look at the sec's twenty. Nine nine suit on kick and its effect on the qin token in the lead up to the filing and over the ensuing one and a half years as noted by catherine wu. It's the same play in terms of process and ugliness and quote
Nike's New High
"A new all time high. Yeah well i mean we. We've been saying it all year regarding strong businesses in trying times like these ceo. John donahoe even even reiterated on the call when he said and i quote these times when strong brands get stronger and certainly nike is one of those strong brands. Going into this. i mean we. We knew that it was going to be able to pivot and deal with with the situation better than most. And then it's proving out to be the case as you noted strong strong really funny to performance across the board revenues of eleven point. Two billion dollars. It was up seven percent on a currency neutral basis nike direct sales. This was really impressive. Nike direct sales were four point. Three billion dollars. That was up thirty percent. But if you do a little math and you can see. Direct was actually almost forty percent of the company's business. So listen we talk about these companies that are taking more ownership of the brain in the experience and nike is doing that. And it's really benefiting in nike digital sales up eighty percent on a currency neutral basis. That's now three straight quarters of approximately eighty percent or better digital growth china as you mentioned was the real star of a quarter the they working on a little bit of an accelerated time line there and recovering from covid nineteen of course and and so i think that management is is learning a lot from what they've done in china and they're able to bring that over to north america and into the digital sphere north america flat not terribly impressive but really given the situation that that's actually pretty good. They've got inventories. And check gross margin. Compressed a little bit just due to basic costs regarding the pandemic and in some higher promotional activity. But when you look at this quarter in total just another just another stellar really quarter from from what i consider a stellar business. I think you're right about north america. I mean just the fact that it's basically flat. It's like that's fine and i think part of it is because of what we just saw out of china even when you factor in.
Gov. Bill Lee enacts gathering restrictions, refuses mask mandate as Tennessee COVID-19 outbreak surges
"As we monitor covid nineteen across the country. Let's take a closer look at the outbreak in tennessee which now tops the us. In per-capita cases of the coronavirus joining us is blake farmer. Healthcare reporter for national public radio. Blake the tennessee health. Commissioner said yesterday that another holiday surge would break the state's hospitals. What is the situation like there now. Well when you look at hospitals you can talk about capacity in terms of percentages. But they just don't tell the whole story. Hospitals are expanding their covert. Icu's they're turning waiting rooms into patient areas at least. Two hospitals in tennessee had a call on a government stockpile for ventilators. They've been making it work and they're doing more than they ever could have imagined earlier this year but they are really worried about. What's next for the next few weeks. We see that thirty percent of covid tests are coming back positive in tennessee and yet the governor bill lee a republican continues to refuse a statewide mask mandate would what steps is he taking if any. He's really been adamant about not mandating masks. He notes that about seventy percent of the state is under mask mandates. Right now local ones. He argues a statewide. Mandate could actually backfire. Not sure how it would really make things worse. But he's certainly encouraging local. Mayors to to make that mask mandate at this point. Well governor lead. Did last night was banned public gatherings of more than ten people now. There are lots of exceptions weddings. Funerals religious services. It also doesn't actually restrict private gatherings even though the governor has said people really need to stay with just their household for the next month even during the holidays so these may not sound super strict but they are some of the first statewide restrictions tennessee heads since the summer. Yeah speaking of the holidays. Christmas of course is on friday and the new year so of hospitals are struggling right now. Are they prepared for what could come. Oh man i mean. The big issue is staffing not space it. The states even started to run out of options there though. They thought they'd be able to just fly in traveling nurses and doctors but they're not available. Now they're working all over the country so they've called on the medical reserve corps in the state which i'm not sure i even knew existed before this. They've even talked to students like maybe registered nurse. Who went back to be a nurse practitioner to ask them to spend their christmas break. Picking up shifts and state health officials. Say they're just looking under every rock to find help until vaccines kickin. Blake farmer from nashville public radio. Thank you so much. You're welcome
The Audio Adventures of Harry & Meghan
"Less than a year. Since michelle obama's podcast lawn spotify have landed and other big proposition. Harry and meghan will be delivered into your is in the new year in the form of the incredibly uninteresting. Lee named podcast arch well audio Rebecca what is the show going to be about almost already forgotten it. E- hiring stories from inspiring people. It's you know it's corporate kind of stuff you know. They might not be working royals officially anymore but they certainly get involved in anything that's bit but dirtier a bit edgy. So it's going to be very lifting content An i i don't know unless they start sharing things about the personal lives. I don't know how to appeal. It's going to have in the long term. the style of it. I mean we only have a trade list. Go on so far but the style is notably. Podcast i'm not that corporate. We can eric lip sherie restore no say it. I think it sounds really nice. With your accent ultra. Ultra ultra audio. I mean rene shall we guys. I'm harry and meghan one of the things. My husband and i have always talked about is our passion for meeting people and hearing their stories and no matter what the story the usually offer you an understanding of where someone else's coming from and at the same time remind you in some way of a story about yourself and that's what this project is all about to bring forward different perspectives and voices. The perhaps you haven't heard before and find common ground different voices. Different perspectives could be less establishment an elitist than a member of the common ground. They must it's just i am no nothing against either of them personally and i'm sure it'd be perfectly listenable but it's the this idea that that telling stories that haven't been told as though there are hundreds of protestors out there who've been doing that for years Yes but i'm not. I personally don't resent them. You know someone who makes similar shows to the ones they're describing i. I've kind of always thought the most celebrities get involved in podcasting. Jimmy collins is everybody he does drive up listenership for podcasting and ultimately that's a good thing for everyone making cast rising tide carries ships. So something more in the sex is good. I mean things that knowing me arch well audio is production company. Name rather than the brand name. But maybe that'll be fixed later on show it will be. I mean people have said to spotify. They had problems with royalties so maybe this is their acquisition of gimli. I'm not gonna say it's paying off but this is another coup that at least uses some of the things that they bought because that style that informal so we just heard in the trial is meghan. Markle is season actress but even so to produce prince harry to sound like that. I imagine must've taken actually quite a lot of effort and that's the kind of thing gimblett. Good isn't it. I mean for for spotify. They they've got a blinder of year They signed up. A lot of people have acquired companies. They're positioning themselves that you have to basically use the spotify app as your podcast app because it will combine shows you can get publicly from. Rss feeds with shows exclusive to that platform. And this just like michelle obama on a job. Rogan will do that. And they're they're playing a blinder. Will it be a super successful show if it was them solving family problems. Why do you think it is the rebecca the four. I mean i'm using the short end of calling them royals. I know technically. They're not in the official practicing royal family but four royals. Why do you think podcasting would appeal. Where it's hard to imagine a royal. Even an excommunicated one doing a regular radio show. Tv show you know making would not be doing fine witchy quick answer probably because they can edited shit. You know it's very. It's very safe way for them to they can achieve things. They make themselves sound relatable polka like having a friend in your ears but also it's obviously going to be edited very carefully so it can be presented in this in the package. They've got in mind. I'm not gonna lie. I mean i might listen. If they drop a few hints about their private lives. I mean on that does their willingness to allow certain vetted meteoroid is asians access into their private lives contradict with what they're doing in the high court. I mean you know. They're suing associated newspapers. They're suing a picture agency for invading. Their privacy can they have it both ways yes. They need to make living but they are making a living by selling access to themselves. Well i think that's very in line with what they're doing that they have decided that it's going to be entirely beyond their own terms. And that's a mixture of legal giving exclusives owned media. Have got a documentary thing with netflix's well as they've got this spotify so yeah i mean i think it fits the pat now whether it works out. We'll see. I'm sure it'll be absolutely fine for them I think they also know that they've got to by being totally against the press which is pretty much what they are. They need access to their own media so social media. Podcast and the netflix tally to to get their own voices heard. They don't need the inbetween of the sun. The daily mail to communicate to the to the public and done that to you. They've created their own channels to to speak to subjects directly. It's interesting 'cause. I think we have seen recently a bit more of a celebrity. Push back against this idea that it is a trade off. I think you know for you know decades. We've accepted as fact this idea that if you're famous you owe us certain amount of your personal life. It comes with the territory and we've just kind of let that be you know. Just the fact. Yeah well now we're seeing push back. I think you awareness. That mental health has contributed to the celebrities. Are saying why who says you know. And i think having their own social media pocus platform etc has really boosted that movement towards no. I'll tell you what you can have. an from. Sports point of emu say work in terms of getting people to the platform. And i'm sure it will but they're investing so much money. Do you know how they judge whether it's a success. I mean what's the metric because way they make money is by converting into premium subscribers or selling them targeted ads. You know a jet for model to have. That's that's so poke. If you're spotify subscriber endanger ads on the music. You will still get ads on the po costs. So there's there's an ad model there. I'm looking forward to make an harry. Doing s- quest based and dodi shots but they will re reads the ads in michelle obama's show. Maybe they'll have a third person a stunt character. He'll do the reeds for them. Who knows some courtier. But that that's that's the market. I but for spotify a whole you remember the music. Pit doesn't really make any money but they need to do is shave. A couple of percentage points off the royalties. They pay all the volume that they pay the record companies to make the whole thing profitable so if i was them and i was saying hey only thirty percent of the audio consumed on spotify is music now when we come up to rights negotiation. We have another look at that so by being broader they have a few levers they can pull. It could actually make their operation much more. Profitable nothing postings. Partly way to do though

Okay, I get my left. Black lives matter. No sorry. They do and I agree with the message just not the manor which is being delivered. We've said that before on the organization go ahead. Exactly. All of a sudden you know we have a organization. That's Through much. Yup You can't do this. You know we have this. AFOREMENTIONED SCAMMED EMMA GOING ON. You can't do this. You can't do this. Well Yeah you can't. Okay. And then we have the social unrest of the nation being thrown into. A sporting. Venues. that. For All intents purposes let's call it. What is it's an escape. It allows us the viewer. Fan. That three four hours. Sunday evening Monday night whatever that. It gives us that escape from eager live love get up go to work and deal with people you come home you deal with cranky wife and kids don't listen dog that Shit's in your shoes. You've taken that away. And now have made it. Well we got to get on board with this. Well, we're relevant to. We're a large. Organization we goner? A multitude of platforms. That we have viewership. There any given? Day that we have competition So now we're going to. Paint messages in the end. We're going to have. Athletes will we're going to kneel to show solidarity. I got a huge problem with that and for our listeners I'm sure you have your own platforms as well. The American flag comes I stand for Gore country you back your country everything else second berry period. That's my thought on that. That's the way it is. Unfortunately when. The NFL NBA MLB hockey underwater basket weaving has become politicized in what we have to show solidarity with this. I have a question. Are you showing solidarity four? Message. Or are you As the NFL did let's put. The name of a known fell one on a helmet. Let's. Let's praise this guy because shot back when a an. Amplifier point in accused rapists. Is someone with a warning active warrants? For Rape Yes. So here in my eternal gripe with this, that will probably go down in flames just like the rest of them. Why are we? In fact. Standing behind. Someone. WHO BREAKS THE LAW? WHO does walk. Yes. They didn't listen. They got shot in the back whatever. House we say. Extenuating circumstances came to be that this ended up how that was. We have to stand behind this person as a form of. Instead of. Waiting, for all the facts that come out be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. And then move forward from there. Well. That's the real question. Isn't it is is you know? All we've seen is what has been allowed to be released. Okay I mean look I think in his thing I agree with everything you just said save one thing. Okay. I don't think demand deserve to be shot seven times point blank in the back now. Having said that. He has an active warrant for his arrest, what he should not have done to prevent that whole situation was to surrender. Get handcuffed and be taken into to engage whatever process there is. Okay, you don't fight cops in the street if you do. You mess with the bull, you get the horns. Okay. He's admitted he was armed. He's admitted he was going for a different arm- armament. Okay. And what do we expect the COPS to die? I don't think so you know I'm. In the eyes of them, that's probably what they're saying. Well. Preserved by life fuck yours. Well exactly. The COP Exactly and and my my attitude would be y is either one wrong as far as you know, one one has a duty to behave professionally the other has a duty to follow the law. Or face the consequences you know it would have saved him from getting shot in the back if he had stopped if he turned around if he'd Toronto. Surrendered Okay Understand that I understand the Warren has has since been vacated, but that's beside the point. When a COP's his I warrant for your arrest I mean you're supposed to do is say what am I being arrested for? Okay I'll go peacefully ears might whereas my lawyer yeah. Instead, of no fuck you fight you tooth and nail, and if get away up the war still there, but you don't have me. Right. Exactly. Exactly and you know I got I got I got a I. got a interject because you know. My personal opinion is if you probably agree Is this. Cancer of case. started. It may have it may have had other sources. Okay. But its primary. Protagonist, in growth factor was Colin. Kaepernick a few years ago and I don't say that in a flattering manner. Okay. I've said it before the my opinion that Colin Kaepernick is the biggest fraud on the planet as pertains to the NFL. At least Ryan leaves when he signed what Leash Langley, when he signed, he knew he was shit approved the wish she had any faded off politely into the sunset because he saw a gay. young just tell the story as I. Recall it and you you you feel free to chime in when you. When when you when you if I'm off base okay. A lot of people don't remember this but you and I as King's football and many things in life have a have a memory quite a bit longer than than your average goldfish. Okay? I remember watching the first incidents of Cabernet court on code kneeling and he wasn't fucking Neil. He had just had an argument with his with with the head coach and I don't think it was Kelly. It may have been horrible. But he had the yard, the head, the argument with Joe it was horrible wasn't horrible yet. So out of you probably saw the clip to you can't find it now because it's Youtube everywhere else. He had he had A. Verbal altercation with Harbhajan and I can only assume in what we were told. You know later was that harbaugh. told him. No you're not starting a colon Cabernet got very unprofessional and like the diva quarterback that he is. Turn Turnhill stomped over to the bench slammed his helmet down in plop disaster down on the bench now by sheer and toll coincidence. Anthem had just started. The anthem it just started when that HAP-. ACI. I know you remember this is I think you and I talked about this at the time that it happened because we were mocking him because when I weren't weren't quarterbacks when we played the game and we know what divas they are even princesses, they are this. If you remember and I know you do espn headlines a couple of days. Later words were that Colin Kaepernick was going to be fine. Substantially for multiple instances of unprofessional conduct conduct deleterious to the team. Leading up to the altercation with harbaugh that happened where he plops his ass on the bench you remember that ideas that. Dakhla and it was it was post practice I. Believe I want a That later that week that a reporter asked him. About the state of the fines and Based on his lip based on. Let's just call it what it was temper Tantrum. Okay. And that's when Cabernet sold all this bullshit about he was doing it in protest etcetera etcetera and he played the race card, which we all know the press eats up hook line and sinker and never ever questioned. Ever On. Me It came across and partner Jackie No, you're good. The the instance of which we are discussing out my first thought on that was yes it's a temper tantrum and I'm about to be busted for having a temper tantrum. So allow me to make up some juicy. To Garner more attention to the fact that. This is happening to be Gimme Gimme. GimMe and I lost my starting spot. Well, that's the that's the point I'm making. He played the race card to avoid fight. For on professional conduct and he was he was outright given a past. I don't think he ever actually even actually got find something that was overlooked too is that is that nick is not a person of color is really not us he is a multi-racial okay and part of that find that he was going to get for unprofessional conduct was calling somebody else on the field the N. Word back can't say here because quite frankly it's feds even and number two I don't WanNa get show you monetize but that said that was part of that that was part of the fine to be levied. The fine was vacated. Okay. Because he was successful, you successfully played the race card and got out. Okay and this whole shift started this snowball at that point. as we as we all know you know he was he was basically the the the face man for chip. Kelly's offense that you know while short term short term effective was absolutely not sustainable. Okay. We all know that. And you combine that with the fact that the guy had. Just over just under a shooting just over sixty percent for completion rate. Even in that offense at his best day, he was a mediocre quarterback surrounded by a bunch of very talented people. Okay. So now it has become the fact that you know this whole narrative has has escalated by people that that know nothing about the actual game because. Football is simple. It's not easy, but it's simple. Is. The ultimate meritocracy. Okay talent hard work equals success. Okay there's a lot of guys. We can probably point him out on the field you and I. There's a lot of guys that that. That just simply outworked their competition to get where they are I'll give you. I'll give you one prime example and right now they call him the goat Tom. De. Tom. Brady was drafted was I can remember he was drafted. He was I. Don't think he was Mr irrelevant. But he was real close. He was the very bottom. Yes. Six he was very close to the very end of end of the draft in and he is he outworked is is competition. Now granted drew bledsoe. If people can remember back set for was not a very good quarterback anyways. He was only borderline better than Ryan Leaf and he went down Tom Brady took over in the rest as they say district but. No? One ever questioned, Tom? Brady's work ethic in those dynasty years in in in New England. Okay. Because he outworked he, he worked his ass off. Yes he was talented. Yes. He's physically gifted but that plus hardwork dedication to his craft turned into in the in the the hardware for the hand so to speak. and. anyways back to my point about Cabernet. All, these people talking about how Catherine doesn't have a job because he's bad for business or half rights, they're only half rice. Now I posted this to the page I know you read you probably it is I. Think I read this week we went to this is from ESPN DOT COM itself. Okay. ESPN DOT. com. The actual date this was published as March twentieth two, thousand seventeen. By their staff writer Kevin Seaford. and. I am just going to read it. I'm. GonNa. I'M GONNA. Try to read the whole thing. I'm trying Doug only try to read the parts that are relevant. But those those listening. If you go to our face, a bitch facebook dot com slash midnight patriots. You'll be able to find this article and we shared it the title of it is calling Kabir Knicks based problem performance. Politics. Day It starts off real simple. So Don't over think why Colin Kaepernick is still a free age simply put years have passed since he was ineffective quarterback he's twenty nine years old has succeeded in an unsustainable scheme as part of a well populated group of former starters who also remain available at as this week began now getting that was march twenty, twenty, seventeen. So they were in free agents. Okay. Let's. Let's move on here. It's blamed Colin Kaepernick's unemployment on his protest is to misread the way NFL teams make personnel decisions. that. I don't think there's any more true statement on Earth. Do you I? MEAN THAT'S Yeah. So it goes on protests where does say at any type of business that if you have lackluster performance, did you are guaranteed two hundred million dollar job? Number One and two I was GONNA say there have been divas troublemakers in the NFL before? Okay and Kim's and? Lewis Terrell on. You know. List goes on and on. And let's not forget the NFL is the lead cut an outright banned ray rice running back from the Ravens for domestic violence. Okay. Before he was convicted. Suspended A. Peterson for disciplining his child. Yeah for banking hit saw. Yeah. Okay for spanking his own child. Okay. So now they put criminals names on their helmet. so by but I digress I digress let's get back to the article. Just to just to go just to go. Teams are swayed I by players potential or lack thereof to help them win protest or not kapernick would be under contract. Now, if he had demonstrable if he had played demonstrably better in recent years. Let's look closer at where capper nick is as a quarterback and why that has left him sitting in a group that also includes fellow free agents, Jay Cutler Josh mccown Ryan Fitzpatrick and Robert Griffin the third. Again keep in mind. This is from shelvin teachings of this is three years ago. Okay. But. It goes on to some of the reason I liked this 'cause this is based on facts not just you know a bunch of race baiting bullshit. Kapernick grid NFL success came as part of the San Francisco Forty niners read Options Skiing Twenty, twelve to twenty four. In those three years, he rushed for Fifteen, hundred, seventy, eight yards which okay. I will give credit that impressive gudgeon impressive number. For. More than any other quarterback with the exception of Rush Russell Wilson Cam Newton so let's just call it what it is. He was third rushing quarterback against. It breath. Okay. I will not fall the net. His. Success. He threw more than twice as many touchdown passes interceptions helped him compile eighth best time quarterback rating in the NFL seventy point to over that period. But even then capper nick was one of the lease most. Least Accurate quarterbacks is sixty point one completion percentage ranked twenty third in the NFL and has percentage of off target throws judged on video by espn stats and information ranked eighteen. So. Based on just the stats alone he was a middle of the pack quarterback middle of the pack. Does that mean that he's better than half the other guys absolutely does that mean that that you know the drama he brings? Outweighs his skills is still setting the money in the monetary investment probably. Okay I agree or disagree just on that statement there. I would agree that yeah, he's a middle of the road quarterback. He had some skill. At. That position. That offense. You're right. Would it work somewhere else probably not but that's Changing teams, you learned their offensive scheme you learn what they do best blend yourself into that and you become part of the team not a one man show. that. I, mean you'd have to agree that most had coaches that have half a brain would go sixty, four, sixty point one completion percentage. even if you're even if you're going to do A. A bootleg offense even if you're going to do a boot offense. Play I can. Still going to have to be better than sixty point one. Periods I mean just entered discussion. Quarter, you're talking college level quarterback. Even if you're on a naked, do either one side, you're still depending on receivers tied ends backs to be open at some point that you can actually say, Hey, he's opened easel bewitched of the two weevils need a cheese her who exactly exactly union able to identify and hit those targets or at least give your guys in a position to succeed you know. I'd like to. Bring to Light I. Not Very long after capital started his quest masqueraded by some of justice whatever you WANNA call it only because he got in my mind and correct me if I'm wrong, he got busted out period. That's just the way it is you through Tantrum he got his ass busted will now I gotta cover with this to cover that with this, and then all of a sudden we have one big lie that snowball into the entire solstice thing that's going on currently. You're. Going to look they had to go. He ended up in Washington. In front of US rest. Explaining his side of everything that goes on great. Denver Broncos of whom I am a fan. I it. Does not get into that because. Pirate about that right. That's ultimate digression. Go ahead, John. elway. It had in fact offer Catholic before your contract. said. Hey. COMPLA-. Can come down because it wasn't enough money. Wait a minute. Let's look at your stats a sixty sixty point something or other completion percentage. Yes. You had fifteen hundred yards rushing, which as we've discussed is pretty phenomenal quarterback save. Russell. Cam. Newton. Maybe rg three hundred healthy. That's stretching it buttle throw it in there. Anyway. I. Really. Wanted to see if capital could be plugged into that offense and sell. Well, that's the that's the real trick. Isn't it? I mean? End and let's be clear. He turned it down because the salary was too low, not the money. Or maybe remember correctly, he turned it down because John elway wanted to load the one at the loaded up with incentives and say, okay, you exceed this mark you get ex you this you get what we go to the playoffs and when you get Z. Experience Cetera so wasn't of excellent. Yeah. But exactly to perform at your very best as cut your in the NFL, they don't take ship nothing while the that's when the NFL stands for not for lofts. That and let's be honest. It was not only. Did he had he had to meet performance criteria he had to me behavior criteria, EXAC? elway and the broncos weren't going to stand for this s J. W. S. J. W. Crap. That he's pulling. So let's go back to the article real quick. It'll it'll. It'll really start driving the point home. Okay. So I believe he started kneeling rating was two fifteen. So. Article Goes On. The issues that we were just talking about the increasing. Or decreasing completion percentage decreasing accuracy except sets. Those issues intensified in Twenty fifteen and twenty sixteen amid forty nine ers. Coaching turmoil in talent drain since the start of the twenty fifth season Kapernick ranks get this. Last in the NFL thirty five all five passers in off target percentage is off target twenty, two point six percent of the time which when she is the least accurate quarterback in the. League. As of the twenty. Fifteen. It goes on. Is Complete. Complete is completion percentage ranks number thirty, two at fifty, nine point one. He was still one of the NFL's most productive Shink quarterbacks, ranking number four total yardage over all those years but it didn't mitigate his passing deterioration and this is in my mind. This is the absolute most important line in the yard or ear and an adult. There is no more important attribute for quarterback accuracy especially for a free agent who is shopping himself teams with various schemes. In, the long term a quarterbacks running ability is considered a complimentary skill and one that is story. Fade with age or because of injuries, scrambling ability and arms drank are secondary to whether you can hit the target. That analysis backed up by numbers essentially wreck stay shit out of this current narrative will Cohen Governor never draw. Back. Dinners. Any beds no sorry. Have a fucking job because he sucks. Sex At what he does also, there's a theory going around the going around that it was right about twenty, nine, hundred he met his I don't know if she's still has girlfriend whatever evidently these ideas about radical justice one I'd ever definitely his girlfriend is, is some sort of radical s j w as well, and he was too stupid to either a lever to the side or be not listen door and just agree to disagree on stuff but then again. Go ahead exactly what it is. Power Pussy with exactly exactly and you quite frankly I can't fault them for that because you know that's ninety percent of marriages happen. We'll just we'll just leave at this point. Is that right there? That's You were saying regarding his ability to suck. But it started then I mean he the guy the guy got lazy. He got loud. Through the race card to cover his shit then he couldn't back up his mouth with performance. You know do you your ears? Rocco's fat okay. Let's talk about just a second. Let's talk about Shannon Sharpe just for ten seconds or for a few seconds. Okay. Shannon Sharpe. Is An arrogant prick agree or disagree now When I hang on, hang on that said. Shannon Sharpe liked to run his mouth about a lot of stuff at a lot of different times also true. Yes. Yes. Shannon Sharpe never failed toback his mouth up with his physical actions on field. Also. True. Unless I'm Clinton mistake, it have you seen the. I know he's A. He's a beast. His and by that, I, mean his physique and his skill level we're just unprecedented but you know I do I think running your mouth there's unprofessional Mind that you buy then back it up on the field nut so much. I mean. Go ahead. If I if I remember correctly now, remember this because there is significant events happened in my life sixteen nineteen. broncos are in the midst of the run to Super Bowl thirty two. Tonight game. In Kansas City in Kansas. City. I can remember. Watching a few days later because of recovering from surgery on. Shannon. Sharpe was literally being drug halfway across the field for most of the game by his helmet because he was talking some serious Shit Oh. Yeah. I. Remember Correctly Dr Thomas. If. If I get an incorrect Thomas Yeah. So. So pissed off the guy, he knocking, Kane insane composure in his professionalism in the game. You got what? I think. Say He lit it up. He was like Yeah. That's ten to twelve for. The Gargantuan One, twenty, one, twenty, six, and what two touchdowns. Yeah he was a month. So. All of a sudden sanders our. Love the Guy I've actually met him. Helvin individual. Love Tall. But he can copious amounts of Shit Oh. Yeah. Oh yeah that that man can back his mouth up. Oh Yeah. We have an and. He. End Let's let's break that down from an NFL perspective. So I'm a personnel manager. Okay and I have Shannon Sharpe as a free agent. His name comes across the wire I go holy Fuck Ball sharps available, and I already know that a he's allowed mouth be he likes to talk shit and sees extremely opinionated man but D-. The Guy Backs should have on the field I picked up the phone. I pick up the phone and say Hello Mr Shannon. Trump's lawyer her agent. This is me at the I would like to pay your your plant, a lot of money obscene amount of money to come help us when football game sets. Ended up with the. Exactly for whatever he was with the Ravens what three years. Say but he wanted them for four super bowl with their to. The argument that Colin Kaepernick doesn't have a job because Hashtag grace is complete an utter bullshit. Bullshit and the the fact that Roger Goodell has bought into this Shit Hook Line and sinker is even worse. Okay. You would think that that to be the commissioner of of a National League or National Professional Sports League that race in what eight to ten billion dollars. A year in gross revenue. You have. You'd have to have an IQ above your shoe size. Goodell even that these people that that they're they're professing to support. Social Justice. Wise. He realized that the vast majority of them do not watch the Games couldn't tell you five players in the league and doesn't even know couldn't name five teams lot I mean. She probably I mean. Look at some of the fan base. Did Not tell you the difference three, four, three defense. Yeah don't try to get him to describe the Tampa to. Exactly or various offensive formation. You're the simultaneous simultaneous possession roll which you and I can quote by heart understand completely. Exactly. Our guys we've got another segment coming up right after this brief break. Stay tuned. Midnight Patriot nations spartan with a shameless plug for our new gear shop shop. Dot. MIDNIGHT PATRIOTS DOT COM. T shirts, hats, hoodies, mugs, phone cases, and just about everything else in between we got you covered whether you're looking to embrace your insomnia, show your patriotism or make a liberals headaches blowed. Really, Shop Dot Midnight Patriots, Dot Com, and now back to the show. You know that's that said. I made a prediction in in midnight moment the last night moment and I want to run around wanted to run that by. Not. Only understand that the business portion of the of the game, but also the game itself. So this is going to the business portion now. One. Of the things that you and I both know is that owners very rarely. SAY WHAT THEY THINK Or say or reveal their plans in advance. Okay. I've noticed that the owners have remained. Suspiciously quiet. About the social justice campaign that's currently going on I do disagree with that. I mean like I said, I think Jerry Jones is really the only one that's actually made any sort of statement and it wasn't a very long. I ever Jones ever quiet. What that's that's my point. And say instead of instead of. Me thinks he protests too much. Me think she says nothing for more sinister Okay so I wanted to run this by this is my theory. Okay. Now we've confirmed the the the Monday night compal atrocity from last night. US. Or Susani from two nights ago that. We've confirmed that the viewership was down approximately twenty nine percent. Across the board in that double header. So if we take the two games Monday and the overall ratings of of being down for Sunday you're talking an average of of a twenty percent downer. It's one fifth of the audience of the television audience told the NFL the PISS off. Okay. Considering the the significant financial investment ESPN has for for the right. To. Monday night football. Let's just let's just call that loss unsustainable. Okay. So I am going to ask you to engage your owner brain for just a minute. Okay. So We're GONNA fast forward to the week after the Super Bowl's okay where things are notably notably quite Rosalie quiet. The coaching carousel began and things like that since. Day. Except that, there's going to be a rumor. Going to be a rumor. That the NFL that the owners are considering locking out the players because they want to renegotiate the contracts. And this will come as a surprise to dumb asses in the AT ESPN released. They're going to feign surprise. Okay. And we're going to start hearing things like while the coaches are not gonNa make anymore are putting hiring decisions are the owners are going to. Put a hiring decisions on pause for just We're going to review a few things and Blah Blah Blah. While then we're going to get to Russia's started free agency. And we'RE GONNA. Find out and it's probably going to be one of the one of the What's The guy's name? Remember his name. One of the reporters Schefter Adam schefter because he always breaks up he's. Probably. GonNa be schefter becomes. We have confirmed reports, the owners who are going to lock out the players affected nine am tomorrow or whatever. Okay. Now what's going to end up happening is this. The overall I would say, the overall revenue is going to decline somewhere in the area of twenty percent across the before the Lee across the. Across the season. Okay. Now again does just a prediction it might be higher. I hope it's higher until they stop dish this personally but. This is what's going to happen. You're going to get a massive ratings ratings cut. Even in the Super Bowl. Which means revenue is going to be down roughly thirty percents. Okay. What they're gonNA say is this is an unprecedented drop in revenue and the the losses are unsustainable. They're going to have to renegotiate the contracts. The players are GONNA have to take less money and this time the the ownership is going to be able to show concrete. The because of the drop in television revenue in Jersey sales and everything else. That they're going to have to renegotiate the contract. They're going to vote on removing Goodell as the commission. You're actually they're gonNA, they're gonNA end up forcing him out but the way it's GonNa play out this players are to get locked out. There's going to be a review of the deal of the of the current Labor Labor Agreement. The new agreement is GONNA. Have a significantly lower. Revenue Pool total that that the players are going to get. And they're going to have conduct they're going to have enhanced conduct policy which include the jewel stand for the national anthem. You will not hiding locker room for it. And you're going to we're going to not endorse anyone as far as any sort of political failure, your ideology on the field, and if you do not only will your contract be terminated but you'll be you'll be on the breadline by your suspended for a year. Now maybe the suspended for year won't come to pass but. Engage your own our brain for just a second and then look at the strike years that came up and you tell me how how how. Or how far I'll fight on that. Will. Allow me to. Dive into this plan I mean. Here we go. I am an owner of a NFL team. Meaning I have had to. Put Out. Let's use an arbitrary figure five hundred million dollars cash right upfront. Chooses five hundred. Half a billion. Cool. I'm. Glad. Yeah. Five hundred million dollars up front in order to gain my team have somewhere to play. The voted on passed and approved by the NFL. As either an expansion team whatever then. To, Cherry pick the other teams around here so I can build my team. In hopes that a I get a return on investment. That said if I'm going to dump five, hundred, million dollars out. A team equipment place play contracts that are stretched for X. number of years. This mice guaranteed this much at a signing bonus this much. Not. including the money paid to the team from the NFL for reaching a wildcard round, a divisional round championship round, and ultimately the Super Bowl. There are incentives paid to the teams by the NFL for attaining postseason plum. Yeah So that said with everything that goes on here. Currently we're martyring. Convicted felons we are. Using the NFL. As a soapbox. As an owner. would. Say? Okay. I can understand. The Point I understand where you're coming from I understand yes. Shit doesn't like this doesn't need to happen. It does there's nothing I can physically do about it personally except point out to you that you're not them. You are a multimillionaire more working your way to that point because of your talent, your skill and your ability play the game price. You as a athlete. well-fed well trained. Best shape, your ever loving life you have a house bigger than anything you've ever grew up in, you've got cars for days all these other things but. You need to remember that you are entertainer You're not a politician. So, that said. When to go into your point? After the Super Bowl. Until they actually have one right. That two weeks later, when everything's died down in the in the winter sprayed is over and losers or duck griping and the coaches players have made their way to their respective all. Wherever. That may be they're probably their private castles. Yes don't don't live in a castle guarded by you know dogs bigger than. Most people's. Cars. Were we will probably see as you said. Well you know revenue was down. Because of viewership is down across the board anywhere between currently twenty twenty, two percent to encroaching upon thirty percent. For Games you know TV, rights merchandise sales are going to be down. People are actively boycotting across those media and they're actually making their voice known by not watching. All of a sudden if we were to take thirty two current teams. And we look at. All the owners in this how much money they have? Now if we were to take thirty percent of total investment apart. As a conglomerate figure. We're talking a loss of probably and I would strong. Guess. Somewhere in the neighborhood of anywhere between two and two point, five, billion dollars while even go you want all you can go one better I think since the economy has basically picked up I mean you gotta remember the day to ten billion was during the Obama Konami which was one of the worst economies history. Okay. So that said you gotta figure that now it's probably going to be between ten and twelve. So if you have a twenty percent revenue law, if you have a almost thirty percent, you're talking about three billion dollars. That's a three billion dollar loss. So even if even if you spread that across thirty two teams, you're talking about what? Three hundred, million dollar loss per franchised. and. So and a lot of the smaller market. Good. So again, as an owner with Joan, arbitrary figure of five, hundred, million dollars starting I just lost seventy five percent of your or yeah of my revenue that I put into have an NFL team. Well, exactly. Well Number One and number two what anybody thinks that now? Okay. We all understand the cats at the revenue sharing For Those of us that are initiated, understand understand the the the reason for revenue. Okay. That's that's a given. Okay. Even still a thirty percent cut to that revenue devastates small-market teams devastate. Okay that's. Cleveland Cleveland Cambe that's Detroit. Well, I think Detroit is a bit bigger, but I catch meaning. into. Jacksonville. Flow? Buffalo Alright. That unders. Anyway. They're too big but no I hear you here's here's here's the thing the smaller market teams are going to move may if this continues maybe on the verge of bankruptcy and and if you really don't think that the NFL owners will lock out the players to avoid that. I just think everybody's so naive that they shouldn't even be a football fan you can. Football I in my opinion, these played the players and Adele are cutting the owners throats and I don't think the owners appreciate it number one and number two I. Think the owners are more in touch with their demographic their fan base style people want to believe i. don't say that they like their fan base because obviously as the executive class billionaires general ended the tend to hate working people or at least have a disdain for them. Okay. But the point being is that it's unsustainable model for them to go forward to continue this crap. Of K, it's it's absolutely ludicrous. So I think about beat that horse to death did you have anything to add on just on that? Final thought regarding that as an owner is a businessman I yeah exactly. Exactly. His businesses to? Yes he owns the team but as a business owner, you're always looking to. CRUISER BOTTLE BLONDE Increase but also you know they've got, they've got a commitment. You know what I mean I mean the bottom line is there are associated with raising revenue to pay Patrick mahomes half a billion dollars over the next. Seven years. Of. The point the point is this is that there are costs associated developing that revenue and win the players behavior or when when the when the the players union in the League encourages behavior that is deleterious to to that mission. Then what are the owners supposed to do? Gordon exactly. They locked the doors take resigning before we open this and then players you're GONNA WE'RE GONNA have to do a big restructure here. Sorry. You know this is this is not you? Not You know you're not this side of the world you guys are on the upper echelon. Of money you have succeeded in. On yourself up by your bootstrap for lack of terminology, you have made it playing a game that you love passion for three enforce your point duty not only are they a privileged class? Okay. Let I verified this I verify this last night. I made a statement that that. The NFL, the people on the NFL minimum as in rookies that that you know what we're undrafted free agents, right that are somehow made the squad, which is more powerful MAZAFA. A No experience. Rookie. Signed as a free agent this year in the League makes a minimum of six hundred, thousand dollars. Six hundred, ten, thousand dollars I then went to the Department of Labor's website guess what the average household income for Americans is as twenty twenty. Sixty, one, thousand, three, hundred. Yes. They working person would take ten eleven years to make. They're making six months show and this is not this is not an insult. I'm only going to use the label for for effect. Hacks in the NFL make ten times. The average working family does and they dare fucking lecture us about what our values should be faulk them. Big F what. Exactly. With a with capitalize all letters with with several exclamation points at the end. So that said I. Underlined and and I tell us is never. That's that said, I I wanNA give credit where it's due also understand that you know. What did I just go off on the NFL to you know to to to the end up with surprise we'll tell you why because You know even in the worst of situations, even even in the darkest night, there are rays of sunshine out gather are rays of light and I want to heap praise on two particular players, and these are the only two players. That I'm aware of have done this if any of you out there. Needed to midnight Patriot nation are aware of more please let us know. So we can give them their just desserts in their props. I want to give particular a credit to a hundred in the way of of the of the Pittsburgh steelers. Mr Villanueva is a former army ranger That said he made a big splash stirred shit storm by doing the right thing. I'm not going to get into the to the criminal that that the that the steelers. We're trying to honor Norma GonNa try to justify it didn't happen there but. Mr Vienna wave. Did something very classy He caped over the criminals name and he chose to honor sergeant first class all when cash. Now I believe I'm saying that correctly cut me some slack by brute if I if I. A brutalized his name that is not the intention. To say how I believe it's spelled. But sergeant first, class all, when. Cash. who was killed in Afghanistan? And I I, WANNA. I WANNA take. The chance to really You know he preys on on Mr Villain away for for going against the grain and for honoring in a true fallen hero on instead of instead of the criminal. So. Well on on that. The next one and probably the biggest honors of the latest give to the Jaguars tight tyler effort. I think I'm saying his name correctly also I don't think it's effort at the. But again, please forgive me if I've Jaguars fans if wrecked his name to. That being said that were I for also You know went against the grain he chose to honor the life of David Dorn David Dorn for those of you that that don't know was retired police officer. I believe it was Saint Louis. He. police chief Sir about that. He was retired police chief and he. was acting on behalf of a friend to go and check is Friends Pawn Shop. And he was gunned down he was killed Doing doing that by a felon in possession of firearm each shot this this legitimate euro From behind in the back of the head, which was incredibly cowardly act. ADORNS widow. was featured at the Republican National Convention. So those be the she told the heart wrenching story and As much as I am I gotTa tell you broaden orphee side, but he loved me misty. I was just her story about David's life was very touching and the impact on her family were simply crush. So I wanNA other drove I drove home the point. Your choice exact life exactly as what makes you? Exactly you know people people come from from bad situations and rise to great heights in as far as I know. This is the only country in the world that that can happen. Where you can make what you want of your own life. Okay. The biggest prison that we have in this country, the prison in our own minds. So A. Big Praise to do Mr Bean away and Mr for will done. I still have the continue my. My boycott because of my standards but you gentlemen have shown that there is a a ray of light in darkness. So Phoenix where you have anything to add or have we beat this to death. By by Pres for. There are people in the NFL that are serving of. Respect for me for one. Not because of their wallet or their house or their cars. But they chose stand for the national anthem. As. SOMEONE WHO Leaves in their country. Leaves in the American dream all though little hard to attain sometimes. The anthem regardless of anybody's political stance. The gentleman across the nation. And the NFL NBA MLB. I stand with you guys choose to stand in honour your country. That is. The way it is your will said. Anybody else wants that is your choice. I. Respect your choice I don't like it but I do respect it. But I stand with the gentleman who chooses stanton honor the country, the greatest country on this earth. Gives them every opportunity to excel in anything that they choose to? Like professional football or professional athletics exactly. I think it. I think it's worth mentioning here. I know we said we beat the source of, but I wanNA bring up another topic to. Weird Midnight Patriots all of us. May disagree with with what someone says, but we would fight to our desk to protect their their right to say those words. That being said I think one of the other things that the public is piss pot tired of is the privileged wealthy assholes. Being able to have different sets of rules at their workplace than we do. In the Corporate World in William and most smaller companies you do not have. You do not have freedom of speech. Okay. You will be shown the door if you bring up politics religion, etc etc. Okay. With social justice causes or otherwise. They can show you the door. Okay and I don't think I don't think it's Ok these. Use Their their platform on the field or in any way while a uniform to promote their agenda. Okay. Now, I think you and I would agree with this if the NFL Players Association wants to get together and host either a live event or televised event. when they are not playing and they're out of uniform. And they want to tackle these issues donate money to causes give away money whatever I think that would be a perfectly acceptable display. That's fine. Okay. But I think the reason they don't is they know that the cause is a loser. Okay. They're not willing to risk their own money you know to they're not willing to put their money with their mouths are in order to have their protests but but you know somehow everybody else should just shut up and and honor was they're trying to do and I think that that is excellent. You know policy at its finest end. America's PISS POT tired of turning channel I. think that's a big factor as well. As your thoughts unfortunately mean here to. Drive your point. I could see. Getting together having one big party fundraiser l. have running toe board. Hey, you know we're raising all this money great or even several. Yeah Go. But the reason but the reason they're doing it on television is because they can reach a mass audience all at once. But. They haven't had. They had the NFL network. If. The shows a winner, they could sell it to their to their allies in the media. WHO's to say ESPN would cover it. You know for God's sake ESPN has the SP one of the worst ward Joe's ever. Okay and if they want to go up to that into a social justice show fine. Go right ahead or create when like it again. Fine. Or if you know even Amazon or Netflix wants to pick up something about you know the S J W 'cause in the NFL an interview players follow players around their charitable work while they advance these causes grace go ahead I mean I think what they'll find his a there's no interest in be nobody cares they approach it that way that we far less backlash in their their incomes would be far safer than if they continue down this path. the ratings would actually come back to a more normal. That's where I'm talking about I. Mean there are only cutting their own throats by doing it the way they're doing it that that's all I have to say. So that's a wrap for this midnight.

If you look at the company, we're really technology experience platform with human Centric community overlay, and that's really been very important. And I think the brands of the future are going to take. Technology, plus meaning and help people live more fulfilled lives, and that's what we're trying to do. And we're trying to give people more and more value for that. We've built is significant data, and they I group and so the more we can personalise, right. What we do and how we can support the more valuable. We will become and that technology and those capabilities and that digital community are very much. Why our retention is at an all time high are subscriber base last quarter. We had a million year on year. And so people are really seeing the value. What we can provide them over a longer term. It's a journey. It's not a beginning middle and end, particularly in health that million subscribers growth year over year. So what percentage that roughly about thirty percent? Thirty percent. Can you continue that you know, we believe that the more we can recruit by getting people to understand how meaningful we can be in their lives. Retention is very important as well. Right. And our ability for people to continue to have success on the program. And what we're also seeing in terms of that retention is not only are people inspired. But they want to inspire other people to lead healthier lives. Do you? And I talked to the end of last year. I mean, this whole idea of like embracing someone's lifestyle, and I think it's really important. I think that's what people need, and you, and I discussed that our biggest competition is people thinking they can get healthy themselves, and they need a partner, and we want to be that partner. And if you think about wellness overall, it really is what you put in your body. How you move your body, and how your mind supports your efforts? And if we can build an ecosystem for people that is sustainable throughout their healthy journey. That's what we want to be. There's no beginning middle and to healthy. All right. So we're Bloomberg.

After the New Year's resolution. Do they stay with you? So we're moving to this wellness three sixty five, and that's what we want to do in terms of our marketing, but they're just is natural seasonality. And as I said before retention is now in about the high nine months, what we're trying to do is create as much value as possible for people so ex time from now, I could be talking about retention in years, not months, but that's why we're trying to provide so many tools for people to out the journey.
