Yo, yo, yo, What is up? What is up? What is up? Ladies and gentlemen, wake up call with every sports.
We are back once again on Friday.
How you doing at the weekend going? What are your plans? Hopefully you're staying safe doing well.
Just this candidate up here in Canada.
Hopefully Fourth of July goes Well, if you got it down.
America and hate right now.
Easy on the parties.
We go easy on those.
We know what the rules are across the country.
Hey, can we give up on the fireworks at all hours of the night? Because come on, come on.
I think we all know those are annoying.
But seriously, thank you all for joining me back here again on SportsCastr.
It's good to be back here again.
I enjoyed the first show on Monday.
A lot of comments for people sharing, liking, sending ticks, sending thumbs up. It was cool to see.
It's the one who has a background going live on camera, re single week and then for Ojai Not done that for a while.
I missed it, so I like going back here again, talking with you all find people here on SportsCastr.
You know, there's so much to get to.
There is quite a bit to get to in sports blood.
NFL talk by H l talk.
You know what I want to have, you know, Being Canadian.
You would think I would start NHL first, but I want to get to NFL first and a couple of things that I want.
You talk to you all about here on the stream today.
First off, the 90 dropped an NFL team from their products.
Washington, The Washington Redskins, a team not picking up steam, being called the Washington NFL Club.
And for good reason, because the name is offensive and name is this respectful Nike has dropped them from the team shop.
FedEx had said they will know the next ones that name to be changed, and FedEx is the naming sponsor off the stadium.
It's FedEx Field on day one.
The name change Dan Snyder.
The walls are closing in on you more and more and more.
What would you need to see that right now? Or to see that for a very long time, that name is the longer acceptable toe have as a pro sports franchise one more do you need to see? It is a name that would be still upon his franchise by racist owner in the thirties.
We made up history to honor the Native American heritage of his head coach.
Also made up also false.
You stand by it and the full sense of tradition, this false sense of history.
Why do you stand by it? What do you gain for standing by the incorrect naming history in the hit in the world? Washing football? Your fans come to games wearing a headdress.
More than one fan Mobile fans calm wearing headdresses.
I'm a gun debate on how offensive that is.
Any word Out with the beat non SportsCastr.
Not on my Twitter and my Facebook instagram non Snapchat.
Not on a well online.
It's offensive stop.
You would get gonna fit you not from a PR standpoint, but to put some more money in your pocket Dance Niner to have a full rebrand because guess what, you're gonna have New Jersey's new merchandise.
New ball cap, new T shirts numeral be Leah knew many helmets, knew everything to sell.
If you go with fresh with a brand new ball club identity you're a billionaire, you think you know, I figured that would have been called to a made years ago.
I feel that I have been a smart play many moons ago to not stand by that name and put that boots on for a brand new franchise.
Look, if not for that, for the fact you could make, you can make hand over fist a lot of money on a new and in a new franchise, look, all the sports teams love ruling out 3rd 4th 5th jerseys rolling out new helmets.
New this new that new this do that and Washington haven't.
There's been ample about people who suggested names, color schemes, and if you look back in, it actually are.
They have been in history of Washington looking back and registering names just in case the names, including the Washington Warriors, the Washington Skins, just skins, which I think is a terrible name.
I think you're going to use those to Washington Warriors would be the player, But already having warriors in Golden State seems Lavy, those two names to have you back up.
Once you do look in the U. S.
Trademark industries, you will find both names involved as belonging to They're going to the franchise.
But to me, or even have a name the team contest.
Get more fan engagement but asking your fan base throughout the D. C.
Maryland and Latin Maryland area.
Virginia That whole region that claims that claimed the franchise involved them for a new franchise name give the winner a few tickets for life Ward next 10 years.
Well, on you built a blood good PR with that shouldn't be that hard.
And it should not be to go in and Kurt the rights and correct the wrongs of owners like a George Preston Marshall.
And like a like a Jack Kent Cooke who did not want to change name.
Unfortunately, Jack Kent Cook with the Canadian man but a well, that's a tale for a different day on knowing better as a Filic. Immediate.
That's a whole different story.
Get into 18 different in pursuit of wake up call, but down, Manny, fix the name right the wrong.
I'm sure league the NFL would fast track.
Usually it's a years long process to get a name change and getting brand change.
Johnny FL It takes a long time usually, but I feel this 40 looking.
The NFL absolutely fast track the rebrand to rid themselves of name Redskins last May and also more NFL news.
Now, you just tell is not exactly entirely innocent or exactly entirely harmless.
And what's going on.
The football world recently as we know NFL sports rule has been turned upside down for a loop and thrown to the NFL is probably going to suggest that Hey, we're going to use Kovar 19 waivers to half fan sign before they come to a game.
I don't know about you.
I nobody all but with the way certain states handled this crisis some great some poorly, some really poorly looking at you.
Florida Tax this Arizona.
I don't know if I would sign those waivers to go see NFL game, Would you? I really don't right now.
With the way that those states handled this pandemic, I don't know.
Want to go in to Hard rock or hard rock field? Harvard Stadium to go off.
There are Dolphins game.
I don't know if I would feel comfortable going into Temper Bay right now to see a Buccaneers game or going to Arizona toe Watch a Cardinals game, which how these states have handled the crisis, or even going to Dallas to see the Cowboys or Houston to go see the Texans? Unfortunately, unless it is having a family that is very poorly Nevada work.
I I love being Nevada.
I spent a lot time my youth in Las Vegas at the southern Nevada area right now for the time being.
Right now, I don't know if you want to go down and sit in a Legion Stadium to watch Raiders play for a season one down in Nevada right now in FL needs to face facts and look at this and say, You know what? 2020 may have to be either a fully family season or the bulk of 2020 is played in front of nobody.
You can't go into Week one in my mind, assuming that, Hey, it's okay and fans will want to go in and watch a game right now in every single state.
I don't see it being a reality right now if you're gonna fell.
I think right now you look at this and say we shouldn't be letting fans in and anything.
I don't care if it's Cowboys game.
Ah! Cardinals game A Raiders game.
A Packers game of Vikings game A Jets game.
Ah, Bengals game.
Cleveland, Baltimore, Minneapolis.
Week 11 or 12 to give this time to improve.
I think you reckless try Blue Week one.
Having fan Did I mention it's on back on Monday about called football fans in the SEC? Probably gonna go pack the place in the South.
But if you're gonna fail, you got no better.
You have to look at this and say, Listen, we're business and we can do just as well.
If we make ourselves a virtual league for the 1st 10 weeks of season, it is possible it is doable.
Forget, I felt, go fully virtual until we 10.
Maybe maybe I'm wrong.
Maybe it won't do that.
Maybe they don't see that as a possible thing.
But I do think that we want or we two.
You need those weeks to be closed door games. I'm sorry.
Are you looking for a disaster? If you start up Week one thing, Yeah.
Come back inside a waiver.
Come in here and sit amongst your fans in the sense of handle this incredibly poorly, not smart play when I fell in my mind.
That's what they're going to truly do. You are.
You saw whole Fame game inductions until next year.
Pre sees it cut in half.
Writings on the wall, you all if not a typical season in any way, shape or form.
God, Billy Man, 9 to 80 years and Schatz Wash, right, girls in here. Welcome, welcome.
A patrol Enjoying yourself, Having a having a wonderful Friday morning or Friday afternoon or Friday evening.
The paying on the part of the world you were residing in right now.
It will move on to back to Mobile City.
Talk both of the sports in the NHL in the NBA.
Now this is one guy I laughed at in the n b A.
We know about Bubble City talk in Orlando.
We know that it's gonna happen.
It's gonna and so happening thing.
Teams going down, staffs already going toe.
Florida media going down there.
What I'm laughing at is a d n l the MBA wanting.
In September, a second bubble in Chicago among the teams who were not invited to play in the form.
Battlefields even continue team like the Hawks, the Knicks, the Bulls, the really bad teams, the Warriors, Cavaliers.
The teams are just bad years.
India wants take them to Chicago to train and play.
For what? For the draft pick for All Star Game rights for cash.
It appears they're playing for nothing.
Why would I go and play for nothing in a pandemic? N ba If I'm the Knicks? If I'm the Warriors, If I'm the Bulls, what do I have to gain for playing in a secondary bubble in a N ba and I t tournament? If you're not playing for a championship that matters well, be relevant to me in my history.
N b A. Come on, Come on, MBA.
What? What's the point? What is the point off a secondary bubble for the non playoff teams of playing in Chicago? Yeah, for fun, for pride.
I could see the next what he said.
They don't want do this.
The next already said They don't want to do this.
They don't have a coach.
I don't see these teams agreeing to do this.
For what? Just because you want to have more content on TV, let them endured their down time.
Let these teams settle in ever like to be safe.
There is no purpose for in secondary bubble of non playoff teams to play in games.
Those teams will tell them We'll see you guys again for a start of the next evening for 2020 2021 start of the play against themselves for nothing.
I don't get that.
And what I want to watch.
What? I wanna watch the Knicks and the Bulls or the Hawks and the Cavaliers play a scrimmage.
Who did that satisfy? Even the most diehard basketball fan would not be interested in watching that nonsense.
You have Chad leaders, Warriors four for pride for a juice box and a handshake.
I know I like Adam Silver.
I do, But oh, my goodness, Is that a terrible idea? Awful.
It doesn't make sense at all.
I mean, in my mind, not all.
I'm moving to the NHL.
I mentioned offing show or last earlier shows.
We know that people bold cities are trying to Edmund Tin, but it would be concerned about how what's gonna happen to the teams who try and escape For players who want to gather bubble, you got a big punishment you have to look at is insane with teams who don't abide by bubble city requirements of trying to Bevington.
It will look silly, but at this point, if you're gonna have team their players who don't want you flee by by the bubble restriction or the where they can go where they can't go.
A player that coming and going and something happens at that point, you say, Listen, you make the Bushman's tough If you're a league and say, Listen, if you come back, if you're caught no being the rules of our hub city or a bubble area, then not only will you be done for ex model weeks or the entire season, well, then your team has done flan simple.
It would look terrible, but you have to have a major plan you have made your point of saying was, We can't explore themselves toe mawr that danger.
So if you're gonna have, say, a playoff series between, um the Rangers and Hurricanes or Florida in New York or, say Vegas and Vase playing Vancouver, someone from Vancouver Vegas doesn't it shouldn't be doing.
They come back to me to get sick.
I'm sorry. Forfeit.
It's It would be a blight on record books tohave that there and say Vancouver advances to the next round.
The A four fit because of injection.
But that would happen.
I'm sorry you can't risk it.
Looking in the end of us fell I mentioned it on Monday, the Orlando pride of the pull of this season because players went to a bar and team staff contracted Cove it So they pull out of what is it they pull out was essentially their entire season for 2020.
Got to be smart about that.
You gotta be smart.
Okay, l b a week will be a very unique situation going forward.
It really will be and moving on now, Dr Football for a second.
But back to my brand football, the one that I think the one that I grew up watching mainly more primarily, wasn't CFL and have been rumored online rumblings online and the idea of the CFL becoming a subsidy off the NFL.
There have been suggestions people hoping for the CFL to be purchased by NFL, an NFL turned the CFL into a formal feeder league.
I know unofficially the CFL.
I fell unofficially to see if they'll have seen as the NFL's farm system unofficially, because players in CFL the majority want to move on to the NFL to continue their careers.
They use the CFL platform to be noticed to get FL radar.
I'm not happening for Jim having for decades that has been going on fifties.
But what I don't like is the idea of is officially ah, partnership.
Sure, a partnership in which ideas I are shared.
A partial in which the NFL loaned people money which happened in nineties NFL their partial when the CFL, which they did have money changing hands to help the CFL outs. That did happen.
And it was actually a proposed plan in which I CFL team would play NFL Europe team.
But that did not happen. That fell apart.
But that was a planned baton that back simply five years ago to happen.
But that did not happen.
I don't want the NFL to control the CFL in a formal manner because now the CFL knighthood NFL dictating who could be honest, youthful roster potentially you might have NFL Tony CFL.
Listen, we want implement these rules in might be.
You have put you get to put the goal posts on the on the goal line on the back line.
You might have to now adopt four downs into the three downs, the import rule in which a certain amount of comedians have to be playing.
We're not getting the roster, NFL might say, Listen, we don't want that any more.
We want more Americans.
We want you to alter the import rule, adulterate or scrap entirely.
Opening the door for all American roster in the CFL, which happened in the Civil in nineties.
One had American franchise because it is illegal to have to fourth Canadians to play on American roster and the American CFL teams to conventional that.
But having all American roster since the unique Indians they didn't have to it was legal, so it was not until to have their Canadians back then.
If there would happen, that would threaten the entire existence off the CFL as we know it.
And what a partnership? Yes, a formal play in which he still controls the CFL officially, hell, no, because at that point, you're going to go down a road in which the CFL well, most likely.
And if you would happen, I think would happen.
I think what happened? We wish you CFL becomes slowly but surely NFL Canada, if not in the formal name in me playing style.
The game that I knew where the giving people knew it would not be the CFL anymore.
It would just be the NFL in Canada because it would cheat entirely.
Sure you would have, the Outrigger fellow would say, See if it'll probably say, Listen, we don't want to threaten him in teams the teams will exist there will probably see.
Listen, the team will always be in Canada, but a replay? My effort rulebook there, played by NFL guidelines, and it might be a ruler to be a ruler to hear that would remain Canadian.
But it will look like the NFL almost through and through, because NFL CFL stadiums, the CFL stadiums can easily fit NFL that mentions they're all bigger.
All fields are bigger than the NFL's.
It will only be a matter of chopping off on end on each stadium to chop toe are a little bit more to reduce the size.
Using and reusing CFL Stadium sized to fit NFL dimensions is simple.
It's very easy to do the hard.
It's been done before, so hopefully that doesn't happen.
A partnership mature than exchanging of ideas, concepts, cash, sure, more marking off the CFL into America.
Why not previous ward preseason games off the NFL into Canada that are enjoyed ventures by boat leaks? Sure, I am down for that.
I'm not down for the NFL taking an approach which which would eventually eliminate the CFL as we know it.
No, thank you, no, sir.
Anyway, wrap things up with little baseball talk and everybody's favorite commissioner Rob Manfred.
Rob Manfred talking about There was no plans for or there was never really applying him.
I'll be to negotiate beyond a 60 game season, no matter how things went with the players.
So, Mr Commissioner, you went back and forth with the players and the P A.
All for a song and dance the back and forth on maybe 70 games, maybe 62 with for sure forget you forget the Astros getting beaned.
He might get Be miss here.
I just don't know why.
Also to you would come out and publicly say that the negotiations were a sham because you were never gonna budge on war.
They 16 game season.
What will be transparent? Why deal in bad faith were the players and with the public, If you're never gonna give you never from jump going to go up to 76 games or 80 games or 82 or 1 14 why not just laid out in the table from time to avoid this mess to avoid a mangling off the season? Heck, if you want to do your 48 game season from day one, why didn't you just say that? Why were you going about this in this? What did you gain from it again? A bit.
But you angered your fans about you.
Your players are mad at you.
Probably a dogmatic you probably your cat too.
Well, the song and dance that I feel we did not need to go through for how many months have been in the pendant? Yeah, the pandemic.
I feel that this could been handled.
So what better you had your the league.
That was for so many months, a head off the MBA, a head of the NHL NFL Soccer in approaching and plan.
And to get back, get back into action into thing out.
You were really the first league that really try approached Kenya, Hub City or a contained self controlled families league for this year.
You had a plan that maybe the location.
We're not the best.
Well, actually, there will be time.
Which Arizona wasn't Cupid who was with Kobe crazy.
The time in which number are okay in Arizona, if you had taken a approaching which listen from day one here, this even this isn't best interest.
Listen, it's a pandemic.
We can't have a full see the baseball from jump in a pandemic.
Listen, best case I want under my urine safety que fue salaries Baseball's born which major baseball didn't need to slash salaries left, right and center.
Baseball is a profitable sport, basically making money hand over fist.
Don't let the order to any different.
I don't know of the owners who are making billions.
Don't let the owners and the league who negotiated deal were the 1,000,000,000 tell you that they can't pay their staff and players.
Don't let him tell you that the 10 It has been bad fate dealings from this side.
It has been we're going to more than 60.
And you still engaged in a song and dance for months on end with the players basically pushing for people.
Thought you didn't want a season in 2020.
You know, love to see it.
Anyways, that's it.
Thank you for tuning in to the wake up.
Call it Avery Sport.
Show will do to get on Monday.
Have fun this weekend, but not too much.
And hey, space yourselves out.
Don't be no health parties with 500 people.
