Kindof relax hang out, do whatever it is. We can do thirtythese quarantine times. Bul enjoy a nice long weekend, allright, let's get into it, got some just general topics that I want to runthrough things that happen this week, tew happened section. I forgot about era little our little noise. We had there Um yeah, so we got some Eagles News,little phillys little sixers, some general nf l news, but then take thesecond half of the show. What we're going to do is I don't know that we're going to seesports this year, we talked about it a little bit last week. My confidence isnot very high. So, if we're going to reset seasons, we're going to resetsuports we're going to talk about things in each major of the major foursorry you soccer and Nascar fans, I can't go there, there's not much! Youcan change about making a left over and over and over and O. maybe maybe theygo right. Maybe they go the OPO way, figureig figure a anser thin that wouldmake it nice yeah that'd B, make make a little interesting like the old videogames you get litte ramp, you can jump over. You know ones overones on that,no no to it's too much and y over thinking. It's alright! You gotta lookboth ways before you cross all right. We need to get some mascerhead in seewhat they think about it. We ever Goin to cover the major foursports and things that, if we CE, if we can reset it, wre we're the newcommissioners. What would you do to make your sport in better or a? Maybeyou say you know sports far on the way it is. We don't need to do anything tomake it better, find that hard to believe, but we'll get inoh, it'shorrible, we'll get into it. So first o some eagles notes, Um. I guess onething for Eagle Fans and eagles season ticket holders and NL Fans Um. That's alittle disheartening is the EILL stopp taking payments for their tickets, sowe got the note earlier in this week speaks volumes. It does Um, so they'renot taking payments. The last payment...

...was supposed to be due. Actuallyyesterday they said there will be announcementsafter the fourth of July. I don't know how to read into that is that the wholenfl was going to have something after the fourth of July, just the Eagles Umthey've canceled, two preseason games and what you hear is people are saying we don't need preseason at all, cancel all of them. I wouldn't go that for Yo. The coachesneed some evaluation period with game. Speed game. You know, Game Game Action.Practice can only show you so much and there there's nothing to replace Gamespeed Yeah we'vehad the COMEA three season game. Speed. We've had that conversation many timeson here, thehe, don't I don't want to hear these guys, don'tneed preces, an the veteran players. You want to see them play a little bitlike you said you want to see them playing against an opponent rather thanthe their teammates. You know actually take some aggression out on somebody Um,but if they say we're not going to have four preceason games, does that meanthey're thinking? Well we're going to push the season back and give you anextended training camp a maybe you see more scrimmages like you've, seen in inthe past seasons, where you know Aftin the Ravan teams that are close to eachother, and you don't have to worry about. You know traveling a whole teampanway across the country, ND, possibly spreading whatever you might spread. Is that a sign of what might be coming?I don't know yea, I could be it's. There still were, how many monthsinteer staying e e out and there's still so many questions unansweredabout all aspects of life, not just sports leasto, which is sports allaspects of wife Um. You know every day you wake up, there's something new. Youknow something you didn't think was going to happen is commonplace or whatever it's just. You can't make heads or tails of any ofit and it's it just it piles on the aggravation andand the stress that people are already under you know from this thing, and I you can't you can make a prediction.You know you can go wat, your God feeling whatever, but you can't say forcertain what is going to happen. For example, the NFL has been talking like they aregoing full steam ahead with the season everything's on on schedule, yeah we'regoing to wipe out two prieces preceason games, but they've been talking aboutthat for years now, I't be fine with that any a Wi see ao too. Yet I'mcharging me full priceit, Shitty Gamesbut. Now all the season ticket holders wake upto an email that says: Yeah we're not going to be processing your your lastpayments and we're not going to be accepting anymore. What wow you know! Where did that come fromyou go from yeah. You know everything's full steam ahead. They'restill trying to figure out the fanes business, but not accepting payments.That tells me at least at the very least, there aren't going to be anyfans and at the worst, no gains YH everything in between it's just that's the reality that weare currently living in. Apparently, the New York giants have told theirseason ticket holders. You can take the season off and there'll be no penalty.You WON'T LOSE YOUR SEATS YEAH! It's not it's not a good view. It doesn't makeYo get excited. The football can happen, especially two weeks out from whatcharry training Camp H, mdtolate Joladi start him wand. Then there was a a report either last night, er on Tuesday aboutthe NF l requiring fanes or thinking about having fan signwaivers to comeIno. The stadens and emplay. Now who's not going to sign that Wa. If, ifyou're ever already, have it in your...

...mind that you're going to agame an andtrust me there's diears and if, if they turn around and tell me, there's aseason, it's Gonto be really difficult to say: I'm not going n its going to be tough.To do it, I, but if you have any lure, that's worththeir salt, that waver means nothing if they're making you signin that waverwhen you're walking in the door you've got all kinds of people saying Icouldn't even see straight when I walked through that Gamei signedwhatever hhy put in front of me, because I thought I needed to do it toget into the gates. I sit there. You know and, like I'm sure, the NF L hasgreat luwers on their side as well, but you get half the stadium say: Get Sick,yeah, yeah, Yeh, that's, and, and how do you enforce it?You know Um te heohers really want to get mixed up in that business. You gothalf a section full of drunken idiots and half of them aren't wearing a mask.Do you really want to get involved in that for twelve fifty an hour or whatever it isget paid? Twelve, fifty miegeners that are right, yeah, I I don't know. If Iwant to be, I might give it one shot and say: Look you gotta, wear a maskand then say you know: Kick it back tick it off to my supervisor. Let themhandle it. It's again, it's an uncertainty that that can't beanswered until it actually happens. I think you she what the Oaklae Nazar Doing, Ithink that's really creative and pretty funny. It is so if folks haven't seenit the Oakland as are offering their seasand ticket holders the opportunityto purchase a cutout of themselves to put into their seats, then, apparently, if a fout ball homerunball of anything hits you or cut out they'll like ship that ball to you aspart of the whole promotion. So there's a guy I'm on this eagleseason, ticket memberboard, who actually sent this idea into the to theboard there to see. If it's something that the Eagles Wul be interested indoing you gonna you and brother Pat gonna pay for cutouts sure. Why not you cut out their hairsong as it's wearing my twenty shirt? Suro at'd be nicely O Change YourJersey, every lea, you know, that'd, be interesting little twist, O it yeah.That would be interesting that that would be weird. You know if you were, if you were watching thatgame and a Pai and Pan The crowde, an you're like wait, wap here. How can I be there thatwould be pretty wild to see that I think it would it's going to be weird, but what whatwould be weirder see nobody in the standswow, that's a great core, seeingcutouts. I know I think, like the Korean Baseball League, they put likestuffed animals in t there, some on some of the Games and that's a greatquestion. What would be more weird? Well, we have no experience with nofans there. We have some. You know some kind of experience with you know when when you go to moviesthey have they. Don't they don't have real fansin some movies in the stayas they have, but you can't tell that they're, cor,oouts or whats set s stuffers or what that's a great question, I'm Gong tohave to go with no fids, be t'cause. There's Er oin talk aboutpumping and sounds of the game, and all that I I personally I would rather hearwhat's going on on the field and with the coaches and things like that, youknow they had those uh, those those what o they call them. Parabellamicrophones re, you GOTTO, go. You got to go to the AV guy back here. I haveno idea what you're talking about you know am a big marce, Pi Isaren't.They call it Tarabella, wike or...

...something like that. You're sint, Joe'sguy on the Penn Stat. I don't know okay Whatev, whatever those microphones arecalled. You got those things they pick off some stuff, but you know You vstill got the crowd behind drowning out a lot of sounds at a game as they liketo call M. I I think it would be really interesting to hear what's going on andI actually watched some soccer, some European soccer and with some purposeor own purpose. Yes, and I was intrigued by because you could hear theplayers on the field talking to each other and stuff, like that, I find thatstuff interesting. I like to listen to players. You know I like to hear youknow them calling out things 'cause. You know, I'm always telling the kids that thatI'm coaching, that you need to talk you not to communicate on the field or onthe court and to actually hear prose do it. Youknow now I can point my finger and say that's what I'm thoughg good about?Coachedeach? U Isn't just crazy! I I just Bo. You know I actually have toknow tig to write half a clue. What I'm talking about, I'm not just saying itto be a pain. You need to do these and to actually hear these guys do it. I Ienjoy listening Tothatt, an IT's when you go to the Games, live, that's oneof the great things about going o to the game's life you'd. Get to hear moreof that. I don't hear it as much up in my seatsand the Eagles Games, Wer Gallinto the flyers games in the past and sensersgames. You can hear of those guys talking with each other and every oncein a while on T v. You can hear them talking to each other too, and you getthat you know off cameramother that percen en you think Tyou're going ohave to start putting like the explicit parental Diserrni, an OKbefore the GAM o risk you're, taking with no no fan noise to drown out. What'sgoing on Um yeah, you know if yeah, that that comes with theterritory. If, if, if you're going, Ao have mikes thatclose to pick up different things, yey you're going to have to deal with that'cause in the heat of the moment, they let er rip yeah soyeahthat would be. That would be befun to listen to hear that different things that they do say. So you're signing Yar waver. I probably would t hantersout angels out y a an extrasicet aet your seat, and they were talking about this on oneof the stations today and the one guy was saying: How are theygoing to enforce a waver at the stadium you know and and if, if you, if they're, not enforcing it, thmeaning the mask policy, if they're not enforcing it and you getsick, does that open the door for a lawsuit, Beca Te? I don't win their job yeah. I the whole legal piece of this andinsurance piece of it. Just I just don't know how they're they're going todo it, but thezer the things we're hearing, asas each league is trying to figure out how they're actually going to startmmmoving gone to another Ly. That should be starting soon, the NBA. What ar to start updates for these thirty first for actual games, MBA thethirtieth thirty thee games, not that's enlnnessas they're supposed to resumeplay baseball around the twenty fourth and he chells projectedly JulyarlyAugust nd, FL's reporting Te Training Camp July, Twenty Eigh, so y everythinghas starte they'r Tra a a month. Yeah everything goes down this Mon. This isthe magic month. While states are shutting down r trying to open thingsup and states are shutting down. Yeh Um, so the the MB, a sixers seem to beapparently or one of the healthiest teams going down here. They'r sendingeverybody other Tanzr an zrs. Is it his...

...ankle again has foot yeah ts. Nockd O has telling me aboutthis. He was telling me nobody tested positive recently on the sixers andsomething about Zaer, and I forget exactly what it was id you I know he'sgot another injury issue. I I just CA't yeah, I think it Wa footleg area was a guy I was working with. I wastalking to him about it. Yeah D, this kid Hehe's been ehe, was on the floor a little bit lastyear. MHE was on the floor sum I think thisyear, but he's not getting any productive, solid minutes, nothing thatreally stands out. I think he missed his rookie year, Um with injury. He hadthat blood infection or something like that Lagh from what was it from peanuts or somethinglike that s othing. He could have a pill and bedone with it and yeah. I I just don't get it withthis guy and we traded him for traded away, mccal bridges for him whoactually is being a productive player. I forget who he plays, for I know it'snot of West. What is it? The sons he's he's getting productive minutes outthere. You know he's getting fifteen minutes or so out. There he's scoringprobably four or five o six points, so I mean and just a whole backstory with his momworking for the sixers and everything and twenty ghth thre an straight to buyher team. They trade 'em, it's just. It's just been tough to watch thisdesirer Smith, kid an and not do what he was brought here. To do and watchbridges go out there an and be a productive member of the sons yeah. I mm didn't like that, and I evendon't like it. Even more now and Damy Lilliar Lillard came out andsaid he doesn't have a lot of confidence Um that the piyeries will follow what theyneed to follow and the season will actually happen. Yeah yeah this this amood ring thing that they're wearing that takth whatever it is that they're they'retracking them with, is it staple through their hand orsomething who's to say, they're not going to take this thing off they'redown there for three months: Yeah: Good Luck, yeah! Didn't you hear StephenSmith even Heno his piece of it, but it's true can't argue. Wo can't arguewith that. I da say you know when, when this isn't going on, there's not a hundred percentcompliance Wa with the Legeru today, you're asking us to all be together inone area can find, and you think we're Gong to. I think it's teams who make make it to a certain level of theplayoffs will be able to have their families down, but teams who don't makeit to that point: they're not allowed to have their famiiges down because ofthe amortof people. That would be involved, but I mean how can you good luck with that asking a bunch oftwenty something year old men? You know to go out to go without somethings for three months: yeah, good luck, AC greened at it Varry saners too right! Didn't. I neverheard that women weaking legs, that's the old, the old adage. So if the two leads actually I'm not surehean I think theanceldis guaranteed to, but if you're you're looking at theseplayers and your contracts already guaranteed, I was watching that crackedbell guys. Last night I kind of chimed hem when they started to talk aboutthis. This is why I don't I don't have confidence that the MLB and he NBA, ifthey even start they're, going to finish my money's here, im not going tolose it by not playing. I can only get sick mhm, I'm not going to play sorry, Ote, I'mout and climbing out n baseball's...

...giving players the options. I think theNBAS stoo not playing, I think they're, all older leagues are given the players,the obtion, but in the N, fl you're not guaranteed your contract or I don'tknow how that works there. If they're making exceptions. If players areuncomfortable and say, I'm not playing ha season coach and Wele than youfourfot, a paycheqk like like we were talking before. We went on these MBAteams that are not not in contention for the playoffs but they're going tohave them playing aftte the rest of the season. If I'm a star player and I've alreadymade throw out a number twenty million forthe season- and I've only got you know a million and a half or so dollars leftto be paid. Do I want to go through that? goliterally go through themotions for the last place for for last placeand and a very insignificant part of my salary, COMSR Golden State, yeah, yeahRighty, any of those guys yethey're already paid now, maybe there's someSteve That'd say well: Some some guys will be playing their free aidns to beplaying for their next contract. I don't buy that teams are gont unlessyou're like the younger guys that are on your first big contract, your firbig extension resigning nutame. I Dan see them saying I need to play. I wantto play, but the rest of these guys that are already paid like you saidthat million and a half I think they're still getting that million n. That arethey going to get that I cun A. I can't pull it backsoso what's well. Why am Igoing to go to Chicago when I could stay in a sunny west coast? You know take a little. I've alreadyhad some time off, but you take the rest of the time off for the season and be better for next year. Wait till nextJanuary for the other season to start yeah or whatever they're going to startnext season. Yeah, there's no incentive for theseguys to go to Chicago and play out the straying of what is it eight eight tengames yeah. I don't know for that. Second POBBLE, for that last place, isthere' still eight games for them. Gi'm, not sure I guess. What's the point, I dn't, they need to figure out who's going to get the number one pick. Iguess they should just have a three point: shooting cut no 'cause thatwon't be fair with Gole State. They would just start stuff oter there, howmuch ha swine Cowi e generally kill competition just go with the with theseeds as they are. You know who who'sever daste yeah. I don't know ifthere's Lim that an lays back in February or March, whenever the stoppedthey got the last or the first pick yeah. Maybe there's a couple of teamsat the bottom there with the same records maby so had em play a n flip, acoin like Estil Wi, don't Knowi Wan One nace thingbefore we take a break and get into the sports resex. I think we're going toneed a little bit of time on that Ca, Newton, Bhu, warst kept secret andfootball people were like reporting it like. Ithink, since the end of the season, once you knew Brady h was gong, maybenot the end of the season. I heard many times a Bella check. WatchBella, CHECKOON SCOOP UP game. If kame is healthy, it makes perfect sense forHir. Why wouldn't he do it and didn't hear any other teams around Cam,tecause Camma said I'm waiting for that call from bill. I think HEU said he gotan offer from one other team, but these other teams might have been like Y. No,we know- and it's scary, because I think New Englandwas finally going down yeah. I think this was the end of their reign in theI east, not that I not that we really care about the c East mouth. We hatethe Patriots, so I was enjoying that I was thinking great now. Buffalo canfinally take over the east, but I think you put Caminare. They stillneed some help with mine receivers. I think, but Um you put came there acaught, her back H, I'll, be inteted he's not the same quarterback inTherain, but I think bellacheck, Tim and mcdaands I get together. Tom, Ithink, is more of a team. Oriented Guy and Cam, I believe, is more of a. Howcan I pad my stats kind of guy his...

...point, his career Ywell at this pointin this career, Ga an the other side of thirty. This is when guys in came'sposition or looking for that ring they go bring on and if they've been paidthey' you know, got an NV p one year, but he's ready t if, if he's healthy,he's going to get paid again because shes's only one year, I mean this dealthat he signed is cutter rindiculous. It's only lit think it's like one point:one million is this base salary, the rest of like six and a half million isall instead of base n, so he's going to be playing his EYRSALF. Yes, yeah he'splanning for another contract, Ah Yeah, so I I think that makes New Englandscary again, which I hate to say it. Ye H it has. The potential algree doeshave the potential to make them scary again. So it's wwe all. We all know howbellacheck operates 'it's my way or the highway Y h. Youknow and he's he's not afraid to cut anyone or, as he's proven with Brady,let anybody go, but I think I think Herar I think Ravera was a hard coachtoo. He might have been a little friendlier NLOGEC, not as much of aheartass and bebewilling to listen and maybe adapt with his players. If he needed tothen thatprobably, not even the right word just have empathy fir st players May andunderstand what they're going through an be a little softer than bill wherebill. Probably just look at the Guyand Gon Wet El, see that guy behind youI'll have him do the same thing? Don't worry about it and I won't listen toyou. Go ahead that guy behind you o the same exact thing you do ron. The onething about Ron was he played in the League. Yeah elcheck never played inthe League so, but I would still expect that Ron when hold came up and say I, Iknow what you can do a and I'm going to do everything to get the best Alu I'mn,I'm going to be in your Hans. If I need to be in your as m, so maybe cams is allright, but that I justthink the whole Bella check psyche, nd t getting into that T S. I think anyplayer needs to be wired a certain way likeRad he was and then you can have that Vulkan mine meld thing withBella Chicken. Everything will work out, Um Bot, GIV, mind MIL, but we'll say allright. I think we're going to take a quick break, pay some pills. When wecome back, we are going to reset sports and Andrew. You better have a lot ofstuff to talk about no ithinkit insure Philly dcom, wecanparison shop. All the time. Can I get this cheaper on Amazon? What willthe store brain save me?

...sponsor insure Philly docom up to tenquotes in about ten minutes all right, gentlemen, let's get into it Sadt inbeginning show. We are now the commissioners of the leagues keep onyou jump in on this too. I'm sure you'V got some ideas e'm how to make theseleagues better. So were e setting everything, no no sports this year andwe're coming back new you can reset when we start can reset rules, roster limits fanwhatever you want to do. First thing: I'm going to do jus get the cawbays out of leash Um yeah whatever's. On your mind. Whatsport we start- Otportith y Andy, what sport you want to start with, thendon't say hockey pick one baseball, ASE, baseball's, a good one.To start with her UM. Let me go first Ro. If you don'tMind Ri, not at all too many games way too many games in baseball. They needto cut that season. At least an half at leasthatoo right, because od baseballbaseball, diehards Don'LTLstart watching in April mmost people don't start watching til, all starbreakJuly August, when piers start heating, there's a whole eighty deams that youdon't need. That's my first change to baseballSokay. You got have Fayou Shul drop, it Onon Bol. You know this is this. Is Aconversation here O know? Don't ' telling me m just talk to you. Ithought you had a list that you a doan. I ask at the rest of my OAS, be Jothroat as anybody I had one next I I would agree with h taking out some games. However, Iwould not slice the season in half once upon a time they played o hundredand fifty four Gamesyes that was before I was born, so they played one hundred and fiftyfour games I might go. I would go back at least that many, ifnot say, maybe O hundred and fifty um nothing. I know, but the thing t, thebig thing I thought about this. The big thing I think I would want to changeabout baseball is to bring back the daytime world series game and what Iwould propose would be to have one home game for each team be a daytime homegame. That's not asking too much! So here's where my short an season playsinto that. When is the world series now October going into November? Yes, Sowel,not to run through Myis, but isother thing I would want to do is I would h like to bring back the natural doubleheader? Not not the th makeup game right. I want to bring back a Sundaydouble header and noty twilight double head or wherethere's five hours in between games, so they can sell another round the tickets.It's like the old days whene. I was a kid it's forty five minutes in betweenGames, startn N, O Saye. It was forty five cents a ticket. I was for a not whole gang Um. It's forty five minutes betweengames. It's you know, none of this clean out the stadium and bring it anew crowd. You buy one ticket for both games and you have forty five minutesin between each game and hey. I would love to bring back a Sunday doubleheader, the natural double adder, and that would help and the seasonearlier and well here I am going trough. My list take out March Games and earlyApril Games. You can't start before tax day you just mmy season would be Aprilfor August. They are gworld series in...

September CA. You can't. I mean New York, Boston, DENVER DETROIT THOSE TORONTO. Those can becold areas in March and early April and they're all cold in October and oover. Yes, I keep on angew. You guys got one nothing for baseball enough for BA wele. They even it the players you konone than 'cause one day like cut down some of the Salari, probably Yeaso,yeah bi- guess wh we're starting over again. This is tfb too ften paid at's. I so you're going to have to learn howto live on twenty five million a year instead of thirty five million a yearor whatever. The next thing I would change is theseventh eighth at Ninhenningeighty. Seven pitchers through those it's likethe last two minutes, tof the basketball game. It takes forever stop with the bringingin one picture to strike out one guy who ends up getting a pop op er. Youknow I'm done with that. Pitcher's got her. Hitch puts the follwedding andheany tired of that. They pitched two pitcheres to get that one out. I'm done! Yeah T! That's my next thing,I'm getting ID of in baseball. You need to figure out, and I know that wasridiculous, but enough of the bringing in fifteen pitcheres ind one inning yeathat drawsme insane and Gabe Kapler was notorious for that yeah ehanother one. I just baseball, need topick up the pase to I know theythey in working on they they need they. Theythey've tried several things: they've tried to clock Um. You have to keep onefoot in t a batter box all that business, but they have got to do something to speed up the game. Theyare losing generations of kids because it's not fast enough. Here's a prime example right here:loved playing baseball do ou. Do you enjoy going to the Games? Do you enjoywatching it on TV, not so much because the games? It's it's more of anevent, there's more things to do it's it's more interesting to be there butyeah. I don't yeah don'tthe Berdies ever watched the baseball game fromstor thet in a few wiytes with me. Yet as C I don't even do it myself anymore,honestly, it's right and they they really need to do something to to speedup the Games. You know Steve Carleton routinely pitched a complete game intwo hours or less routinely, and you don't see that anymore, and you know the other thing that I alwayshear about pictures who pitch quickly is it keeps their defence interested inthe game and on their toes, we've got to be paying attention because theball's being pitched, I can't be looking at some hot chicken row, threesection, one. Oh Five, you know I've got to pay attention to what's going onUm, so F, for that advantage of nothing elseand players. Players enjoy a pitcher who pitches quickly and keeps them ontheir toes and keeps them interested in the game. Um Yeah they they! That, Ithink, is the biggest negative thing going on for baseballright now is the pace of the game and once you get into the playoffs, oh myGod, it's just ridiculous, and these Sunday night Yankees Red Soks, themarathots. They take four to four and a half hours to finish a nineinty game,because it's the Yankees in the Red Sox, that's just utterly ridiculous thatthey have to do that. There's no need for it. I got thatt that off your chest, a...

...make sure I give you moon Mon wit tobreathe you good, yeah lwait. Let me let me take a little all right. Uh besclears get rid of benchiclars baseball. They don't do anything. They cal acllom at each other, everybod agongap. You know, they're, exciting, no they're,not they're, O a joke. You have the four hundred pound pitctur running outfrom the newdog out, and I you srouen along. If you didn't like watchingPedro Martina' body, slam, Donand Ilike. No, I im knocking out I'Aventur, butthat's back when they actually punched each other rigt. U Know Nowadays ththey stare, they throw they hug an then everybody comes out and- and it justmakes the game slower, it's getting back to speed up the game that Tro toget off the bench. If you're not going to throw Po, it's not like they HAPPIevery game. I know I know Um, the the other. What Man Hoy were going to sell,put p Rosinhole fame was that exthat too replay has taken away. A great thingthat used to happen in baseball was an umpire manager argument, MHM earlweavergloger from the Panala. You know those guys got into it back in a day, littlebelly bumpy Ale, going bellie to belly, turning the hat around spitting in theface, although that wouldn't be a good thing. These days n well, they'll, beware of massarser ightkicking dirt on each other's splakes, that's more interesting than Hese BenchClarsand! You know guys going in the dog out, throwing out wather. You knowthe gateray buckets onto the field or stack of pats out of owing the bapplutYeh, exactly going over taking out the base and Throwin DOE thou. She Er lefte e, the one video, the guy. I think it was a minor league team like he doesthe army crawl an AXI, a n Togra, you two, but it's a great clip. They are agreat Clif. Then Yours, one of the best manager yea Ar Umpire argumentsnailtime. All My list is get rid of umpires no good come on they s the a o.any me if there're e, four major slor few yes, but I get rid of Hem as awhole of the four major sports th, the one where the umpires are the devis andthe umpires think the Games all about them. That is true. I don't emer a thatpoint, geverously that that Joe West Guy, I don't argue that point one bitUm, but no, you can't you can't get rid of onpirs they've been there since TeyWan they're a part of the game. This is this is HD. This is the new day.This is the new world. Orderwe can do what we want. We're re setting allright. Well in that context, yes, yeah. How many times do they check a swingand they go down the first base and he has no idea what's going on and he justgoes safe. It's a fifty fifty shot there they'renot paying attention. They go down. The first pace to go down the third baseand he wasn't ready for the call and he just sais. No, he didn't wait, Mah. No,you can't! No. What are you going to? Have you get a Lazer beam t at shoots acrosst? I mean E, Hey, don't have teologins now with Yo boy, O birs now Youdon'tneed an umpire. You got. You got something on homeplate that calls thestrikes for Yo. Now no well. They they do ave theirtechnology, ey can tal or they det, but NA. I I like the human ellment, that's howO're not getting into my league ro fired stepfing of my office signs Agan.I like I like replay to a certain extent, but the human element, the human aspect, toit, I think, lends more to it. That said, I still think Davy Lobe's isout at first base, O one thousand nine Huteren and seventy eight...

...but UH. Yet at Ompire blue. That call, but Imean N, you can't take you can't throw a blanket Snam by why you tellingme I can't this is a new league. I can do whatever I want Jimmy Jimmy's UH. Icould extend a base. Patterbisioner for a life should be a hundred and fifty Niwhan. Do you think about that? Are they going tee? These guys hat around ofshape, can't make it down ther eyes or he go a hop or a botorcycle ai hit theball all right. I have other baseball ones,but they're it's stuff, like cranashy baseball, sucks, wh w. What do youthink about of the home games or for each team in the world series? One homegame you like that Ida yeah, you know what there's one that Ithought out didn't put list get rid of Teh. I Bik I'm with you an that one andI know they're ing you're bringing at the AG an o season. But that's when youtalk about it, Aitest awritten rules and leasing the game on your own. I ask whythe American, you need thesepictures to get plunked when they PUK somebody and not allow a a aalars 'cause they're,not going to throw Oyo o e'Sright about that. Not Not only that aspect. Butwhat bothers me as it takes all the strategy out for a manager managerdoesn't have to think all he has to do is fill out a line up card and unlessomebody's hurt Ein or slomp. He doesn't have to make any changes forweeks, if not months at a time and just fill it out handit into the umpire atto start at a game and then go take a seat, and then you know do whatever scrolled through his toiter account orsomething he, as in Ta, Damn thing going, O back and catch a cigarette.You know, maybe in the eighth an he has to make a pitching change, so he youknow, picks uff the phone, a says: Yo get the left, ind, the radio. U Youknow whatever I can't stand the Dhand, I I I hate thefact that that was ever introduced. I think it was Charlie Fenley who was theowner of the as at the time who championed that and got it introducedinto the American League. I think it was. Seventy three was the first seasonfor it and I've hated it er. I J S. I can't stand it's good for players.'cause, it extends careers. Maybe you know a player who could hit,but he can't feel you know t gives him a job to do whatever, but it just takes.I think it takes away from the game more than it adds and Y. I know I you look at pictures er rage that pitching the American League, a solid era in the American league, isunder four. Fifty, that's that's renticulous! No, that's reridiculous!You know. A good era should betos around three first quarters aroundthree. You know yet, preferably under two but I'll take a three a and just for the sake of argument thrown it outthere. Do you know what the era for a so called quality start. Is three runsand six ennings pitched Yor APHRA is four. Fifty that's Ne Stopid BEA, that's not aquality start. We got a lot of pictures in the phillies. They could do that.Yes, lot of quaity stars, onon, the phillies. That's a stupid thing to callit a cloudy start when the RA is four F, three runs and six entis. That's notgood. No, THAT'S NOT QUALITY NOO AVRE! So far! Yes, that's that's an a that'sa mediocre Yo Arra in the American League, okay. So in e new in the newbaseball league, then it's going to go April. O August midday world series, geing e fo Hawe're going to have the limit on the number of pictures that you can throwout there between the seventh and night, ending we're going to Redo all thestats B'cause. The stats are sucked. Nobody knows what war is. Nobody know.Whip is don't tell me to do. It means nothing. Moneyball people...

...er Eve o require or get rid of myParson. I draw the line there. Alright, you'reup that sport we want NFL or NBA. We got twentyminutes. We may not get to hockey, I'm sorry hockey, folks, we can Saye thatfor Aogo MB, a Goin N B, a all right, I'm getting rid of the front roll ofthe NBA. Yes yeah 'cause, I'm kind of watching all these rich people sit onand get involved in the gain get get hem out of the game get hem out ofthere. I don'tthat that one old man that sits on the sixers bench well, its I o Sixete Cents Aig on he sixer'sBetch, he's this close to team huddles. When there's a time out, Yo you're afan, not a team member go take a seat and get out of the Weit. I don't need othe time out to see who's sitting on the sideline. No Talk Talk to game tome. Gen I'll, show me what just happen. I don't need to see justind biebering,drake being jackcases on the sideline right. That has nothing to do with thegame, but that was my number one on my list. BEC YOU NO I'll go wat! You thereum well and- and this is where I'll give aB A little little shout out yes to three point line to not go back to theshore Shortz, not not af fin ID assured it. I had to livehgh and where are those show suits Um? We, when I was a kid in grade school,we played not only in short shorts, but they were sat in short shorts. I say Iwas with the little bbeltbuckle right here. Man, you are old Kivas, like Damgod d. You people reallydid TAT. The hell is that all bout m not a three point line. I think it'staken away from the game: Uh Important Aspects ofthe game: Um, kids, Oh my God, these kids- that Ithat I coach there there are thirt and fourth graders, not yours, but thereare third or Fort Careans. He still thinks untilthat go in there and theylaunche these twenty foot shots, and I just watch- and I just laugh becausethat's what they see on t V and that's all they think they need to do- is tobe able to shoot to three. No learn to shoot the ball from a lay up on out.First, when you get good at one, then you move on to the next and so forth,and so on. You don't start out as an eight month old kid running, O hundredmeter dash. you start out crawling on the dam floor inches at a time. It'sthe same thing. Man, that's the way you got O basket. Peds on who e yourparents are, they might have put you one of those little wll, walkers and Ogo. Maybe they were trainin 'em and lit eTheye? It's just I I. I really think the three pointline has damaged the midrange. The short range games, h to the point whereit's it's never coming back and- and I thought it's never coming back ripHamilton- was the last Consistedt midranged jump shot in the M B. A Imean a guy was money from twenty feet on in a and h they've toyed. With the threepoint line when it first came in, I think it was at twenty five feet andthen they knocked it down. You know they thought that was too far, so theyknocked it down to. It was around twenty one, something maybe twenty twofeet and now it's out to like twenty three something so they they and Ithink it. I don't think it's going to move Frig yout say you don't have muchfarter to go. I mean you're. On N teads, there you're in E H, Moo Corner Three:is you got foot Bret Right, they've moved the college three point line outa little bit that high school line is still the same M, so you want to goaway with it completely. That's where I'm kindo torn Um and to your league, as is your leaueWale. If I had, if I had a dollar for...

...every time, I saw one of my kids shoota three and I say no, no, no! No! No, and it goes in and I'm like, I, you know, don't know the three point line. I think I think I would take it out now we got to go to the youngergeneration 'cause. These guys heads are spinning. They love the three balls Ygot. What would you change in the Ba? I would t usen, wateran cofin and just having goby likeall. The playoff teams just play, like you know, just go one streeghtseeting for the playoff sow really. I feel like Moked Ou, in a lot of greetplayoff series between greet players just because the conferences, that's aat's, an interesting yeah mean you think of like you could have hadoutwest Wedwoud I Kawai was with SAT Antonio and Lbronwith Cleveland Miami he's, probably with both inkawas with nsani Antonio Lakers um Cleveland Beteen, like OBEEbron, a lot early put all series. I we um on of that coereasaninteresting E. Igot amit cave oand. I thought you were going to say it when you, you startedout by saying I would get rid of it. I'm like Oh, my God, hes go to Crinwith me. Don't know a ter wit are COMLI. I love reeb danger. You got ananything over there.You, like the three point. I know you like the three point line. I watch toshoot at all the time I'm going to say this season is toolong too nowthat. NNNEED is shorten this season. I M I'm looking atbasketball in November thre April. I'm lining all my leagues up, so just asone's finishing the other one's starting up, I feel like November,through Aprils a good basketball time. Now it's an indoor sport, so you don'thave to worry about the weather, and then you get some of the nicer we Aprilweather for playoffs, so syou can have the outdoor parties during the playoffsand and not that I was around for this either, but Dr Nasmith Mhm, the he was your family peach righ. Thetigst reason why he creat created the game of basketball, was to give kidssomething to do between football and baseball yeah, because there was somuch down time in between Fre Min Sil. He came up with the sport of basketball,and so I think that's the natural season for basketball is, you know,they'l fall into winter, late winter, maybe even in the earlyspring, when baseball starts to come back, but you had that major overlapbetween football and basketball. That's you just Y, AH couse football's naturalseason is the fall and that's why I'm cutting it a little bit, I'm bringingI'm dringing basketball in in November hm and you have a couple of extramonths of Justbe as you get a couple of months, an just football and in acouple of months of just basketball along along those that line n and halfjust said it too anthony hoppened shortened. The NBA CS at I said, cutthe SEASN ER yeah I on ha too long yeah, I other had oneother than the NL. Every season is too manefel perfect, because the Games meanmuch more. When there's less games, Crri they're, more portant as thosethose especially those ier division and their conference games, they mean a lotmore than I'm going to play this team six more times. I don't care if I'mplaying my stargters tonight or not, and and not too not not to go back too much, butbaseball, not a big fan of innerleague play and the reason why I say that isbecause way back when there used to be moreteams used to play more division games than anything naturally in in baseballthey would play. I I don't know how many games it was.It was a lot of games against each divisional, oponent and the rest wereagainst the you know the West and m.

They would split them up between homeand a way, and I think I think it would be. I think it'simportant to to get back to those entr division, rivals in baseball andmake those games more important and and stack those games up a little more thanthey are these days and and the the only way you're going to do. That is toget rid of in e leeplay, which I'm not a fan of see. I like Dinnerlea playbecause you get to see Teenyouen Mush G Youen, you get Tho the world seriesright, you don't take the Songin as yes, that's how positive I agree Um, but Ijust I jus, I the rivalry. You know back in the day with the Pittsburghpirates, you know th th, the New York Matche, those those games really meantsomething to to Phillys fans, because they were huge rivals of ours and theydon't mean as much as they did back in those days, because it's gettingbordered down with all these interleague games that that they'vecome up with these days. If you're trying to keep a younger fan baseinterested true I mean you got guys like Mike Trap. That's never going tocome out hereright. Unless you have the interleague mm. I I'm all right to keep it inerly thatstays okay! Okay, commission, you Gett't, beat Ata anything else on theAmbe, I'm going to say tanking, we need ther, fixed, tanking, T H, t there's it's two that damages th the integrity of thegame. When you know teams are out there purposely losing as much as they try tomake it look like they're going to win. Everyone knows you're losing to getthat number one pick, and I know they're trying to make changes to thedraft warter to do that. There was one proposal somebody came upwith where it's like Yo play for the teams that don't make the playoffsplay for the number one ti an like a tournament: Stf I' bbrown, Robbin orsomething I'd I'd be all for that teams are still gongna lose, but yeah. Thoseare teams that are probably bad enough anyway, that yeah, even if they try towin they may not. But when it's clear a team is tankingyeah ye H, I agree I' do something about that mm. That would take some doing, though, towhat to do about it. You know if they came up with the Ping Ponsystem, which I don't trust that pin punk, I don't either they do that allbehind closed doors and yes, anmtay- have to be much more transparent withthat they d n, the actual drawing of the pingpong balls, happens like daysahead of time. Is it before I thought it was Arva it beas a w avel but yeah that Oll has tera out in the open.THAT'S SHADY YEAH! That's I don't like that. No, I don't either tere's got tobe more transparently there Um and you know, make make a rule that youcan't have. You can't go two years in Aro getting the number one pick if you're tanking an hopefully, maybethat would h stop teams from from tagging on purpose n wher tha also was like taking away uh,making the first round go back to five games heries. I think that wouldincrease like upsets and all that Li do yeah. I I agree. I think there are toomany h playoff games, yes on on when all in Allall all sports, wherethere are playall series, I think the first roumd should be shorter one. The thing about that is it favors, thelesser team, because now I only have to win three games instead of four and when, when when you have that it gives the lesserteam a better shot at the upset and, of...

...course, leagues always want their twobest teams playing for a championship and show up and play show up and playyeah no Yo e you're, a hundred percent right yeah we're making this this isour lead, come on she or conviction. Well, she or convicthim or forgetting the old ways. Er getting rid of Hem Yeah nowee game.CERIES Uyou want it, you win it th the t knocks you out cream carently,you rise a little sooner. Apparently you thought you could just dream. Youknow just sleep walk through this round. No, it sucks'm sure th, leue Woudn't behappy with it for the next four years, nowind that probably the premeereplayer the league. That was on that number. One team isn't going to beplaying but play lady game, Hu ill, a game, I'mwith you. I don't even know if we have time toget in the football. What time is it about five minutes to Sa Hou minutesand we started early? I still got more M B, a stuffthoughthere's, not a Sol in here from from a Ri one Bak guys heprom debate they're,not here yet YEAV. Five minutes we got five minutes, so maybe we'll saveteennal e next week get in the EANAFILL. Istill got some out Tom Ba things and is again has nothing to do with the gameitself, but I'm tired of every fenam being compared to either Jurdan thenext Jordan or the next Kiby right, I didn't say, Lobran on a Tal Brown andI'm not Tisy Dla Braner, Scoori Myma. This isn't the Labron Jurdan debate.This is just these kids you're. Forgetting will thank you. Do you e hear of him Yokay, but these kids they're compared a and the league, hisshown that there's guys that have their own special abilities to be the staffcarries the Kois mean these guys? Probably to them I'm sure it's a bit ofa compliment to say: Hey this kid might be the next toosure, but at the sametime, they're like I love to Er idolize Jordan, but Idon't want to be Jordan. I want to be better enjor. I M want to be me. I wantto be the next Kuwai, the only qui, the firstKai, not not to sin that vein, but not straying off too far. Do you think howmu I shouldn't say? Do you think how much pressure was on Mario La Meu,coming up after wing Grusky being called the great one and a Mario wascalled the next Oneyou know in the context of your e? It's the same thing.It's the same thing and I hate cratkkey can't stand them kept us from at least one cup, if nottoo. Well, actually, I say Timmy carbmissing in those series actually kept us from one curpor, two one. You guys got anything else. F, O t theNBA N. I I yeah, I I think it does put on a lot of added pressure. Onte, thesekids and and and we say, kids- and they really sometimesthey really are kids, yeah, they're, six foot, ten and two hundred and fiftypounds, but guess what they're one year out of high school? You know they'renineteen, maybe twenty years old, so they are kids. You have to remembertheir kids they're, not maybe physically they're, fullydevelved, but not mentally they're, not fully develped. Yet you know- and they sure tol aren't used to the exposure- that the n Bayeah n high school day that were stars the one one year of college they playYeat, they were to star, but on the M Ba you're going global in the NBA. Youknow you're going national and global in the NB A and that just takes it up. Eighteen other notges- and you can'texpect a nineteen twenty year old kid...

...to be able to handle, and then on topof that, Oh yeah, here, dude, here's, ten million dollar go, have fun, play ball and have fun. Okay. You know especially that Second Fars but yeah. It's it's! It's a lot ofpressure on these kids and it's it's no wonder some of Hem crumble, onder itand end up. I in all the trouble that they end up in yeah, 'cause they're,trying to live up to everybody and hey got yeah people and navears. Yes, yeah! So it's it's! It's rough out there forthese guys. Sometimes you know you're saying that and then you'repaying Hem twentten twenty million dollars, R, whatever to go, playbasketball, how ROULH ISIT! Well, let's, let's see you do it, you knowyou live up to the standards that everybody's putting on you. You live upto. You, know the these expectations and and the role model you're supposedto be and this and that yeah you're gating paid for it ans en yeah attwenty years. Oldyou know yeah, it's it can be. It can be tough it'. It's no wonder they crumble underit, sometimes right so for the new M B, a shorter season. What do we sayNovember three April M, no three point line right short: shortz required. You must satin Tatin shor co shorts with theLTTLE EV MD midsigh. Can you go blt, Whit, wit's, the cut all go mit hem,it's imn H, receding no conferences in theplayoffs mand and not with the Jordancomparisons. We all know he's the greatest that thatwe're right, okay, an e'regoing to figure out thanking Ti. Yes, we're going to figure out tanking.We got to figure that out, nd we'll hold off, and once we get it we'regoing to formerly we'll have some legal mind drawd up, forcible mail it to theto the Commission R sil. I not MOU anything O anybody whe're thecommissioners, this las done. It's not league, it's none! It's just like the X,F L, but it's goon to work. Are you doing like hireerping and sitting up inyour own players? I'll get a player's association go in IAVE got to do it offwo. Do it right M, it's Gong to get rid of any sports talkbecause it'll be the perfect league and there there won't be anything to bitchabout. So maybe- or maybe we shouldn't do this- we should keep the UMPIRES and allowthem to continue to flop in basketball. Allow Hockey fighting and ChrisCollinsworth and H, NFL and you're not digging hockey flights either.
