What's up, everybody? Tony Comptel out, Billy Influence of dot com Fox Sports The Gambler He ratio sports podcast So many so many things to talk about even in a world whether is no sports in a world where the best sport that we can watch is n ba horse What's is coming? The Big Three, which is coming and possibly Major League baseball Now one of the very interesting parts about this Let me, uh I have to share this row fast.
It could be one stocking.
Uh, there was one of the most interesting things that I thought about with his MBA horse.
We're gonna get in the store a minute.
Uh, is just the the amount of guys that are that are in it and what they're actually going to do and thinking about, I think Chris, Paul, Chauncey Billups, Trey Young.
There's so many different personalities in this thing.
But think about it.
What? We want to go back today.
And we weren't to take our own horse players.
Right? Uh, give me one second here.
I need to share this.
Get everybody on board.
It's been a long time, man.
It's been a little time we're trying to get through, you know? Ah, horrific time, Uh, way.
And you know this today for some people, is the death off you sports for spring And, you know, depending on what state you're at, depending over part of the country you're in, You know, class has been stopped already.
And it looks like, you know, the P I double A has decided that there will be no spring sports any any.
You know, any illusion of trying to recuperate? What we kind of had that towards the end of the winter and for the spring is going to be over.
Just it is a tough time for everybody involved.
And we know why we do it right? And I understand exists for all the high school seniors out there who don't eighth graders.
This is a huge deal, man.
This is the absolute you.
So even though you know, depending on what side of the country are, even or what state you're in, even if fifth graders who have their step update the sixth grade, or maybe the sixth graders rather step up the deception, greatest effects, someone different people.
So you know, having sports as in the outlet.
You know, I was trying to think about this the other day, and it was, you know, I didn't go through a time table where it was really hard for me to adjust.
It was hard for me to say.
You know what? I'm gonna get right back in the sports scene, and I'm gonna start dissecting, you know, NFL free agency and I'm gonna start that dissected some fantasy football draft coming up and, you know, fancy baseball.
If baseball were to resume and it was really hard because I was watching NFL players, you know, score millions of minutes dollars and signing $100 million contracts and multiyear deals and, you know, and holding out for, you know, the best of which they're supposed to do.
But my whole thing is, you know, there's people in small businesses that may never, ever open up again.
There's people out in this country that all obviously over over 60 million, you know, our 6.
6 million the other day, just in one day, a low file for unemployment benefits, which is unheard off and unfortunately, problem going into a recession and there's gonna be people that never recover from This is gonna be businesses that never recover from this.
So it was really hard for me Thio to get deep inside the psyche of NFL players and say, You know what? Yeah, sign and you'll make that money.
But, you know, I got past that and, like I passed it because I'll be like everybody.
Every one of you was out there who maybe we're looking at their Twitter feed of our Facebook feed and you don't get being scared of that of what's been going on, being scared of death out the numbers and how many were positive test we have.
How many more people have unfortunately passed away.
Then listen, you know, I finally got little point where, you know, I am sorry for all that unfortunate.
I can't control it.
And I just do my best part in society to either keep myself in my family healthy and keep everybody else healthy as well.
So, speaking on to that, I want to talk about the Major league baseball's play, and I thought it was very interesting because, you know, listen, I am 100% Ford, okay? If there is a way for major league baseball.
And again this has could read that Zack Wheeler in a minute.
Because if everybody knows, Zach Wheelers came out and you know, his wife is pregnant and he had basically a comment about this is never gonna work because I'm not gonna be able to see my first child being born.
I'm not gonna be able to be there for my wife because we're talking about taking these players and quarantine in every single player and coach and camera guy and broadcast with whatever they dating fit as a number of people to be quarantined.
That's what's going to happen.
These people leave their families on months on end in order to perform in order to play a game.
What's Let's be honest, we sorely miss.
This is a game that, unfortunately, we really need right now, okay? And I say that not out of disrespect and not out of ignorance.
I am not saying Let let let's get this straight.
I am not saying makes like baseball players are above the virus.
I am not saying that.
God forbid we you know we will not be able to move on life with that Major League Baseball.
What I'm saying is Major League Baseball, even though it was only a week, was the first thing to take us over the eggs.
When it came to 9 11 when 9 11 struck.
It was the same height or deal with the same kind of thing that we get blindsided us.
We had no idea that this was going to happen.
That's something of that magnitude, something that would sneak up on, you know, up on us like that would ever happen in this world, something to make us feel helpless, something to make us feel like there's nothing we could do it.
We're looking over our shoulders.
One of what was gonna happen next, what's gonna go on and Major League baseball.
And if I'm not mistaken, New York accuse one of the first games.
Two set the season back off right, one of the first times that we would see normalcy, and I think that's exactly what we're talking about when we talk about the Major league baseball product because, listen, let's be honest, we need this right.
We need this just for the simple fact that so we could put something else on TV and listen.
Of all due respect to Adam Schefter, I don't shatter came out and he basically blasted the NFL for being ignorant to the virus.
He's basically said I'm ad living here, but that's basically said they were being ignorant to the virus.
They were saying that you know, they're going on with the NFL draft virtually, and they were acting like There's no way that the NFL seems will be delayed.
Listen, I completely disagree out.
I understand what you're saying, but eventually, eventually we are going to have to move on.
Is the country all right? I don't know what that's going to be, but right now the biggest thing is preserving human life, and I completely understand that when we talk about the NFL, the NFL, in my opinion, isn't being bigger.
What the NFL is doing is they're essentially saying, you know what? We understand that there may be a shock that we may be the lead.
We do understand that we won't will not be able to do that.
Things that we normally d'oh.
But we're gonna give it our best effort and send it just downplaying, Rifle being a say absolutely not never gonna happen.
We're gonna try our best.
As we delay certain decisions, we tryto work through a new avenue and that's what I think they're doing.
And bravo to the NFL because the NFL is trying to make this work just like we all are trying to make this work, whether we're still working whether you're a small business, whether you're a restaurant, right, whether Europol are whether your alcohol store, whether you're a supermarket, right, everybody, Whether you're a teacher student, everybody's trying to make this work, okay? And so I I applaud Major League Baseball.
I applaud the NFL for doing what they can and an NFL Listen, that's a big deal for them that basically say, we're not gonna do the trade in Vegas.
We're not gonna have the motorboats ride the players off the podium.
That's a huge deal, right? It's a huge deal for the N B A.
To completely pause the season, right for David Silver to come out and say, Listen, we're not even gonna revisit this for another month, and so we look like we even have a slowing of the curve, not flattening of the curve, just a slow, a little down car or maybe a percentage that's not on the up and up every single day.
So, greenie, there are so many things to go into this.
And that's why I applaud these.
Organise a search for trying to do things that they're doing Major League baseball.
We'll get back to that.
Will it work? Can it happen? I think it can, but I also not a major league baseball player.
But I also understand that major league baseball players have to make sacrifices.
Listen, I'm gonna be straight up.
Not this is going to tell you what I do for a living.
Besides, sports talk you out of your company.
But I also have another job.
Not going to say what it is, But guess what.
I'm still working, right? So and I get it.
You know, I'm not.
I'm not asking for pity, Right.
But what I'm what I am saying is that I know I'm making a sacrifice.
I know that I am risking my health every time of seven of the house, right? But here's the thing, Rachel Baseball players will be absolutely safe while corn see because they will have the progressive testing.
They will have their own area of whether supposed to be, You know, they have a system.
And if it's backed by the F D A back by hotel, why not? But again, they all have to agree, and they're probably not going.
So listen, this is just like you wanted a contract negotiation, right? This is just like I want to go with C b et you know, when you're gonna want to see B A, you know, we're gonna get 100% agreement.
You're just not.
It's just not going to happen.
But what you want is, um and George, that's what you want.
And again, I know it's talking about Arizona and we're talking about, you know, you know, no fans, and we don't know.
I don't think about it.
It's a seven game and maybe a shortened, you know, so we could get all the games in who knows what this is going to look like.
Well, all I'm saying is, if you need to tell me that I can choose between watching Donald Trump and Mike Pence up on the podium every single day, as opposed to watching a major league baseball game with no fans.
Seven innings, expanded rosters, watching something different I am all for which brings me to N B A horse.
Listen, I think this is This is absolutely fantastic.
I really go again.
It's an entertainment value.
This is something that we can do with technology, Something we would have never been in this position of their 20 years ago.
You know, right now we have the zoo meetings and way we have the Internet, you know, we have the Skype.
Now we're gonna be able to witness an M B A horse games by guys like Chauncey Phillips, who hasn't played Trey Young Zach Levine.
I mean, the list goes on.
It's going to be so cool.
These guys, whether being their backcourt, whether it be at their own private gym, wherever it's gonna be and they're actually going to televise it, and they're actually going to record it.
And this is something we're able to lots just like EA Sports.
And you know, if you follow Fox Sports a gambler, But you know, Jason finale, you know, he Oh, he does a really, really good job in the East Sports Center area.
And that's another thing that is a budding progress, right? It's a North and a loss, eh? NBA players play against other M B players. Be eight.
Okay, watch NFL players gets other NFL players somatic.
These are the type of things that we have right now and that are growing.
And again, I am not saying that they are going to replace the actual sports England's own is.
I commend them for trying to make the best out of a very interesting situation.
Now I need to go to the football room now, and I need to go to the NFL.
And the reason why the NFL is because again, what the hell is Bill Brian doing? If your syntax is right, we look at this again and you know the trade for bringing cops to give a second rounder.
So they take a guy and David Johnson the guy and paraded cloaks.
And what did they do? They're paying those guys eating in the head $1,000,000 for two guys who have shown that they can stay healthy to guys who have not worked out, except for maybe one year, you know, respectively, for each player.
And they train away guy and DeAndre Hopkins, who was gonna make 12.
5 $1,000,000 to the Arizona Cardinals.
I don't understand it.
I'm really not sure.
So right now, you basically need a couple ambulances backed up and, you know, in Houston for, you know, in Texan, you know, from Houston, Texas, because here's the problem.
Every single one of these guys gets injured.
What will be Will Fuller? Whether being Brandin cooks, whether be David Johnson, They all have a tremendous injury history, So I'm really not sure what they're trying to prove out there in Houston.
And then that brings me to our hometown Philadelphia Eagles, who have still not sign a wide receiver.
Still, and I'm still trying to figure out what our rosen So I really are still trying to figure out Hey, how we wake up, dude, right? Wake up, please.
Because I have no idea what the hell was going to go on in this trance and and here again, I'm gonna keep nailing this home every time we talk about.
And this just doesn't have to be for NFL draftees that something had to be for rookies.
This could be for veteran NFL players like a Tom Brady. And I felt Rivers.
Listen, we're talking about talking.
Excuse me? We're talking about going into an NFL season where we have no training camp.
Where way have no mini camp, right? We have no voluntary OT A's.
Okay, we don't know when they are goingto happen.
So what is that going to two that's going to hit on a progress? The cohesion that you want between your free agent quarterback or your rookie? Why receiver and your offense? So Howie Roseman.
If this was the year that you wanted to get cute, how you want to go in and say, You know what? We're director wide receivers or we're going to be good.
Let me tell you something.
Go back and look how hard it is for those wide receivers and produced on a normal year, let alone a year where we're talking about a team that's gonna be shorthanded.
When we talk about the playbook on, we're talking about practice time.
This isn't the year, and so basically, I understand we're all in the same boat.
But guess what? The other teams that went out got DeAndre Hopkins and Brandin cooks on Robbie Anderson.
There gonna be a little war.
I had it eight ball than you are when you're talking about who knows what else on is he on the team is even gonna be healthy that Shawn is gonna be even apply.
Is he gonna be healthy again? And do we have to match the same? Do we have to mention? I don't want to say I don't want to say our think A white sign.
I said it or think of White Side.
Do we have to talk about how we hope that he's in a workout? Listen, unless you give me Jefferson from L s U Unless you're gonna move up to get a guy like light like lamb or you know, we're Judy, Listen, I don't I don't really think that's gonna happen.
And even if it does happen, you know I have my tendencies.
Are you? No, I'm I'm not being optimistic when it comes to taking a look.
Rookie wide receiver and parable Carson Wentz right now, But it's not going to be able to practice.
So, you know, there's so many different things.
This wasn't the year for me, for Howie Roseman Cube.
So right now it shows that he's trying to be cute.
I don't like it.
I'm not gonna be happy about it.
Proven wrong, Howie.
I hope that you D'oh! Then let's talk about baseball again.
And I had to talk about the Philadelphia Phillies.
No, I have to talk about the thought of it, though.
Is because right now I have to slam Matt Klentak on and our boy enemy fell.
And even if it's some Middleton that's involved, I'm not sure.
Listen, guys, you know we had, you know, I'm gonna get this.
We had a thing on Fox Sports again relates to capture it, you know, capture an image with no caption, right? One of your favorite images of all time.
And, you know, obviously there were some really good ones.
That Jordan flu game was one of my posted Barry box, right? I don't get to that in a second, but it made me think about baseball.
And it made me think about Buster Posey because Buster Posey, San Francisco Giants Buster Posey was the best catcher in baseball until he got over the hill of baseball star, right? And so we got injured a couple years in a row.
Best head for a baseball right now is in the photo.
Best catcher in baseball, best catcher in baseball that you refused to pay an extra couple mil, too.
The fast catcher of baseball.
Why are we getting to you? Why we're talking about a global health crisis right now and paying them it.
We're giving workers hazard pay where we're giving extra tips where we're giving things that maybe aren't expected, but we're giving them out of the kindness of her heart.
Because we know what these what these people are doing when it everyday basis, whether they're on the front line in the kitchen with a front line in a factory within our front line of a hospital bed, it doesn't matter on the front line and all risking their lives every single day.
Well, we're gonna take the room youto we'll talk about the best catcher of baseball on.
We're talking about a guy you want to **** off, right? Because we don't know what's gonna happen to the c B.
I answer this season.
We don't know what's going to happen with anybody's contract anybody's terms.
So this is the year again that you want to get cute.
So that's not Look at the Eagles and Howie Roseman and stop trying to be cute like they are.
And give this guy what he wants.
You're not proven anything by saving 2.5 $1,000,000.
You're not proven anything.
They keep arbitration all eligible for another year.
Give me a break.
It doesn't matter.
This is the best catcher baseball, You know, you needle, you know it needs to be on this team and, you know, for **** sure you should be playing games, That's all.
I'm gonna say that let's get to everyday life.
So I think I was a good 20 minutes and that space and what we did, we went 20 minutes.
We talked, we went all over the map and I'm gonna try this.
We're off and I've been having major connective ity issues and it looks like we've been good right now there are people watching.
And now if you're on a side right there, you watch with me.
If you get at least tell me that I have sounded pretty good this whole time and I haven't gone in and out and froze up.
I'd appreciate it.
You know that I will podcast this thing and you guys know this pain will always be active and as once as we can as much as we can.
But you know what? Our last word I want to say about sports is sports is definitely something that we always expect to be there.
And it's given me a different perspective on life, and it's gonna give us a different respect level.
Once it comes back, it will come back.
What I'm going to say is last words are Don't knock the ideas that I talked about in the beginning before you actually look into and see why this isn't all about money.
And even though people want to say the money where I get it, because this economy does have to get back up and running eventually, we all know that right now we are saving many lives, and that's what this is all about.
But just think about something now, only receiving lives because of Kobe 19.
But we're saving lives.
If we reason with sports for people's personal health, right because again, anxiety is a huge thing.
And that brings you to my last point, which is, if you need somebody, that's all, too.
If this is really getting to you, if this is getting you with a curious situation at dark plates again, you know I'm gonna be honest with you at seek until the 23 is one through in a book.
I am always on the computer.
I never sleep, which is probably why I don't have the best health in the world. Right.
But that's what we do.
You know, I I do it because I love what I do.
But guys, listen to me.
If any of you out there ever need to talk, you want to tweet it up.
You want a d n me whenever you need to.
At sea control 23.
I will answer you.
If not right away, then that's possible Time that I can, which will be very soon when I'm on Twitter again.
So again, trying to stay positive.
Let's get through this.
You know I can't wait to watch the MBA.
Who worse? I can't wake the lots of big through when I ask you, and I hope we want some major league baseball before we know it again.
I'm talking about solo act tickets.
