00:00:00
uh, got a hair in my hate it when you get with eyelashes, that airbending back in your eyeball and with that being said, Hey, what's going on? I'm Lourdes on with SportsCastr news today with me.
00:00:18
I have Ray wrote, and Joe was not able to join us today.
00:00:25
He is busy on the road working.
00:00:27
So we are going to get into the new news.
00:00:33
The new news of news and talk about the Washington football team for the NFL over under on the amount of times that we use The R word today is three.
00:00:51
I'm going to try to go under, but, um, yeah, we'll see.
00:00:57
So they just released a little image of their uniform and it is plain.
00:01:06
It is either red top, white bottom or white top red bottom.
00:01:10
Their helmet basically is completely playing except for the number.
00:01:16
From what I can tell, the number of the player is on the side of it.
00:01:21
They don't have a mascot yet, so they can't really put their mascot on the helmet or were on their jersey anywhere.
00:01:28
So to me, it looks like a ah, an NC double a college football team.
00:01:34
You know their uniforms.
00:01:35
What do you think? Right.
00:01:38
Um, I think that the next time a team decides they're going to change their name, change or look, find a new mascot and all that kind of stuff.
00:01:48
Perhaps perhaps you should start planning it before the season starts.
00:01:52
So you don't end up in this very vanilla generic kind of way.
00:01:57
I mean, there's been a controversy about the I'm going to say it, but not in referring to them.
00:02:02
So this doesn't count for the over under.
00:02:04
But the Redskin name has been under scrutiny for at least the last five years.
00:02:11
The fact that Dan Snyder didn't have any foresight to realize at some point in time he was going toe have probably have to change the name either.
00:02:20
He's very arrogant.
00:02:21
There are very stupid.
00:02:23
You could have had all this stuff preplanned.
00:02:26
And the reveal could have been we're no longer using the Redskins names and go with what? I think they're gonna be the Washington Red Wolves.
00:02:35
Yeah, they should have had at least a backup somewhere.
00:02:38
I agree with you. Some kind of backup, obviously.
00:02:41
Um, like you said they had five years at least to sit here and think about that.
00:02:46
And I mean, there's a ton of names.
00:02:49
There's a ton of mascots they could have went with of.
00:02:53
And you knew the push was gonna happen.
00:02:56
You knew it was gonna happen at some point, because it was it was strong, like you said five years ago.
00:03:03
And then in the last couple of years, this whole Ah, I hate this.
00:03:09
Call it this, But it is what it is.
00:03:10
The cancel culture has came out, you know, and has just gained moment.
00:03:15
Um, you should have seen this coming, and you should have had something set up.
00:03:20
I'm sure he's got PR people.
00:03:23
Every everyone who owns such a big business like this has got PR people.
00:03:27
And they got They should have been whispering in his ear this whole time.
00:03:29
Hey, you need to get something set up.
00:03:31
You need to get something set up.
00:03:32
And either they were any adored.
00:03:34
Um, or they weren't.
00:03:35
And he should have had someone new, someone different, working with him on PR.
00:03:40
Yeah, you had to have some sort of backup plan, and they didn't.
00:03:46
And again, I just think that that's the arrogance of Dan Snyder.
00:03:49
I think he believed that it's my team.
00:03:51
I don't want to change the name.
00:03:52
And I'm never going to be in a position that I have to change names.
00:03:56
Well, Dan, here we are.
00:03:58
And you are now the Washington football team, and you look like a You look a fool right now.
00:04:07
Yeah, By the way, Lawrence **** for calves just followed you.
00:04:11
Awesome.
00:04:12
Awesome.
00:04:13
Thank you so much, but yeah, I think that it's Ah.
00:04:18
I mean, it's just Ah, you know, if let's say the Patriots name was under scrutiny for whatever reason, maybe the English are offended and then, you know, and we start getting that, you know, thing, or the Colts, it becomes a caught topic main because, you know, colts throw cowboys off and hurt cowboys, and you know what I mean, and I'm not.
00:04:41
Look, I'm not discriminating against the indigenous people that I'm not not acknowledging that the Redskins is a, you know, was it was it was ah, derogatory name towards indigenous people.
00:04:52
So I probably joke, was probably in bad taste, but, um, I would hope that Robert Kraft and when that screwed, is coming down, which starts saying, just in case.
00:05:05
I mean, look, I'm a business owner.
00:05:08
I am a manager.
00:05:09
I do things and I always have a just in case in my back pocket because things could blow up at any time.
00:05:18
I could get in email from a guy named Nick who tells me, Ray, you're no longer on SportsCastr, and I go, Oh, no.
00:05:28
But there's always a backup plan in my back pocket.
00:05:31
Yeah, the fact that you run a multibillion dollar company inside of a multibillion dollar corporation and you're putting out absolute dribble for your players, your fans and the rest the National Football League.
00:05:46
I mean, Washington just has to be embarrassed about the way this whole thing is going down as it is, as the situation now were a lot of professional sports teams, even college, high school, you know, in any kind of sporting event that has some kind of ah mascot needs to take a cue from this.
00:06:10
I don't care if you're called the second.
00:06:15
I was going to say sacra Julia, but then that rolls right into the r word.
00:06:20
Uh, so the New York football giants will call it that, you know, like you said, you need a backup name just because of the cancel culture that's happening right now.
00:06:32
You need to take president with what's going on and make sure, And like you said, you need a back up plan for everything.
00:06:40
You got backup plans in case there's a massive money shortage.
00:06:45
Player shortage, power outage.
00:06:48
Ah, this or anything, right? You have a backup plan for darn near anything.
00:06:53
You need to have a backup plan for something like this as well.
00:06:56
I mean, this is just another example of the NFL league.
00:07:00
We love the league.
00:07:01
We support a league.
00:07:02
Me talk about.
00:07:03
Look, yes, we're paid to talk about the National Football League, but we all started you myself, Joe.
00:07:10
We all started his fans, Man, we all just started his fans doing podcast that nobody was listening.
00:07:16
Teoh and they gave us a platform to, you know, do a different version of our podcast.
00:07:22
But at the end of the day, it's, you know, we were all fans that talk about the NFL, but I think that it's also not unfair to say that.
00:07:31
I mean, this league gets caught with their foot in their mouth or their pants down or their underwear on fire.
00:07:37
Whatever adjective you want to put in there 10 times a year, you and I mean they get caught, you know, with their pants down.
00:07:44
And it's all reactionary.
00:07:46
It's all.
00:07:47
It's all reactionary, and they never explained decisions, and they just come out and do things.
00:07:53
And again, I believe a bit of it is arrogance from from ownership arrogance from Roger the Clown, which is, I refer to him as, you know, I'm sorry, Roger if I offend you.
00:08:05
But Roger Goodell I mean, there's inconsistencies amongst punishments.
00:08:09
There's inconsistencies amongst morals and standards.
00:08:13
Um, I know this sounds like sour g****s, but it's not.
00:08:16
It's just this is really my moral feeling.
00:08:18
Forget this local for a second, but you're telling me that a guy deflating some footballs is worth four games, but a guy cold.
00:08:28
Clocking his wife in an elevator is work, too.
00:08:31
And the only reason that he served any more games was because of the public outcry of how ridiculous it was or when the New York Giants kicker, after the Ray Rice situation, admitted to abusing his wife got one game, but Ezekiel Elliott get six.
00:08:50
Tom Brady gets four.
00:08:51
If you know Josh Gordon keeps getting and, you know, indefinitely suspended for marijuana, it's just the inconsistency in the arrogance of the league.
00:09:01
That's the There's no presidents for anything.
00:09:04
And I think that they constantly kick getting caught with their pants down.
00:09:07
And it's because of this very thing.
00:09:09
While don't worry, I'm not gonna come up with a backup plan is I'm never gonna feel enough pressure to change the Redskins name.
00:09:16
Well, wait a minute.
00:09:17
Nikes leaving. Budweiser's leaving this place.
00:09:19
Well, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
00:09:21
Hold on, hold on. Let me reconsider.
00:09:22
You know, right and again, they got caught with their pants down.
00:09:26
I mean, listen, when you start seeing companies like Nike publicly backing, uh, somebody like Colin Kaepernick making him the front of their campaign, you have to understand where there as a company where their moral values lie, or at least what morals they believe will sell more merchandise.
00:09:50
And the Kaepernick things should have told you.
00:09:52
Hey, man, maybe at sometime they're going to come after are insensitive name.
00:09:57
And I think that if I'm the Kansas City Chiefs.
00:10:01
I'm probably I don't think the Chiefs need to change their name, but I don't think that grown white men should be dressing up is Indian Chiefs and doing the Tomahawk chop and playing that, you know, playing it across the stadium.
00:10:18
The Atlanta Braves got rid of the Hawk, I think, two years ago, but the Chiefs were still doing it.
00:10:23
I would be prepared because now that the Seahawks have changed and you may not know this, Lawrence.
00:10:29
But up here in Canada, we had in the CFL, the Canadian Football League.
00:10:32
We had a team called the Edmonton Eskimos.
00:10:37
And about three days after the Washington football team announced they were retiring, the Redskins name the the Edmonton football team announced that they were retiring. Eskimo.
00:10:51
So it's I didn't know Eskimo was a derogatory term for into it.
00:10:57
It's It's there, actually called in you.
00:11:00
It's an Eskimo was what we called them.
00:11:03
That's what I found out.
00:11:05
Ah, a couple years ago.
00:11:07
Yeah, yeah.
00:11:08
What we call them Eskimos.
00:11:10
They're actually they actually refer to themselves as in you.
00:11:12
It's way came up, we gal, but that's still I mean in my That's like saying this is my personal opinion.
00:11:26
Okay, Um, that's like having a name, but somebody else calling you by their other name.
00:11:33
I mean, they might be, and they consider themselves in you.
00:11:38
It's with that.
00:11:40
That's like saying, whatever the word for Italian, the in mind that my name and Mexican is Lawrence O that would, you know, if someone called me Lorenzo, Can I throw a hissy fit? I shouldn't be able to because it needs Lawrence in Spanish or Mexican.
00:12:01
It is.
00:12:02
Um, Eskimo is a much Eskimo.
00:12:06
API in Canada is about his touches.
00:12:08
The subject as Redskin is in the States.
00:12:11
Um, I ask him Oh, may not be as big in the U. S.
00:12:15
Like Redskins.
00:12:16
Not a big wasn't a big controversy.
00:12:17
Appears we didn't have teams, but Eskimos been controversial for a few years up here in a lot of indigenous groups have.
00:12:26
It's and you know what I mean.
00:12:27
I don't know the U.
00:12:28
S.
00:12:29
History, just to be honest, I know it's is in football, but it's since we're on the subject.
00:12:32
I don't know the U.
00:12:33
S history of the treatment of I know down there you know, Native Americans.
00:12:39
But up here, um, did you know, here's I'll give you one example of what the Canadian government did.
00:12:47
So in World War Two, we had a draft, right? And, you know, indigenous people, Native American, 80 Canadians.
00:12:55
They were drafted and they went over to Europe, and they fought in the war.
00:12:59
But there was a rule that Canada had If you left your reserve, you weren't allowed to come back and claim your Indian status.
00:13:07
You what? I mean, you have to stay on your reserve.
00:13:09
So they got drafted, forced to go to Europe.
00:13:12
And then when they came back, the Canadian government said, Well, no, you left the reserve.
00:13:17
You've lost your status.
00:13:19
That's dirty.
00:13:20
Yeah.
00:13:21
So it's a very, very weak that our government man did a lot of nasty underhand things.
00:13:26
And I'm not talking 200 years ago.
00:13:29
I'm talking as early as 50 60 years ago and we're still doing.
00:13:33
We're about to put a pipe right through their land that they own you.
00:13:36
What? I mean, so we do a lot of underhanded stuff to them.
00:13:39
So that's why it's a very touchy subject up here.
00:13:42
Okay? all this. Leave it at that.
00:13:44
So, you know, they basically said the white man gave us Eskimo.
00:13:47
We do not want to be referred to his Eskimos.
00:13:49
What? I mean, then it so it's, you know, and trust me, If I went into the deep history of what we did, it's our government did not treat English, right? This was after 18 12.
00:14:00
This was we were still in English colony.
00:14:02
And you guys were America.
00:14:03
Yeah.
00:14:04
So, uh, it's ah, a lot of a lot of shady stuff.
00:14:10
Well, I mean, ****ty stuff happens all over the world to, and we just have to own up to it.
00:14:17
You know, if you in your country or you as a person, done something shady and when If you admit to it and say, you know what, I'm going to try to be a better person or a better government and admit to what you did and say, Hey, I'm gonna try not to do anything like this and change my ways.
00:14:37
I think that should be right there.
00:14:39
That that should be commended, you know? No, I agreed.
00:14:43
You 100%. I see that all the time.
00:14:45
And you know me.
00:14:46
I'm and you see me on Twitter.
00:14:47
I am a fight for I am, Ah, a warrior for racism, anti racism.
00:14:52
I don't fight for racism, but I'm a warrior for anti racism.
00:14:56
I get into arguments, fights? I have public breakdowns on here, you know? I mean what I always admit the people I've said racist things in the past, I'll probably say racist things in the future.
00:15:06
It may not be intentional, but it's gonna happen.
00:15:09
Um, it's at those point times.
00:15:11
Yeah, you're right.
00:15:12
You have to admit to it, you have to learn from it.
00:15:15
And you need to become a better person about her country, about a government, whatever it may be.
00:15:19
So I think Edmonton dropping this name is that sort of that step towards like, Okay, you know what? We're going to recognize that it offends.
00:15:27
You were gonna recognize what we did to your people, and we're gonna move forward.
00:15:31
And I think that's a thing.
00:15:32
It's the people who it's the people who defend their bad decisions or defend their You know what it mean to say it right? You know, you guys are all too sensitive will know you offended somebody? Shut up! Eat it.
00:15:45
You what? I mean and and go and look em also.
00:15:49
No.
00:15:51
I'm going to say people are a little too sensitive about things.
00:15:54
And I'm not talking race or ***ism or any of the big issues.
00:15:59
I mean, people could be offended because I have a blue shirt on right now.
00:16:03
I mean, there's sometimes yes, people are too sensitive.
00:16:07
Um, I don't really get this joke.
00:16:11
So I'm gonna ask you, Lawrence, cause you might get it.
00:16:14
Okay, if I could, because it makes it.
00:16:17
I was just really? So you know who Mike Huckabee is, right? Yes.
00:16:21
The former governor of Arkansas.
00:16:24
He tweeted out today the Washington Redskins will be renamed the Washington Russ.
00:16:31
It's they can play mashed, fried, boiled or hash browns, but mostly they'll play baked.
00:16:40
Okay, that's funny.
00:16:41
He's getting torched for it right now.
00:16:44
That's funny.
00:16:46
That's funny, because the bake thing has to do with the legalizing of marijuana and russet potato being baked.
00:16:55
That's kind of funny.
00:16:56
But at the same time, I okay, but here's my thing.
00:17:02
Can you explain to me because maybe it's ah, it's an American thing that I don't get, uh, because he's getting torched for it right now.
00:17:10
Okay, now I could just because he's Huckabee.
00:17:13
That could be one of the things.
00:17:14
But even clutch points is ripping him apart for why is that offensive? That's what I want to ask you because I can't figure it out.
00:17:20
That's why I'm asking you.
00:17:22
It shouldn't be, uh, and it's the truth.
00:17:25
It should not be offensive because it's a simple fact that it was meant in humor and only in humor, right? And in my opinion, if it is clear humor not intended to offend people, just as you know a joke, comedians do it all the time and get a free pass right all the time.
00:17:50
You see blackface comedians, you see white face comedians.
00:17:54
You see comedian saying and doing things that would normally be very, very controversial, and they get passes.
00:18:01
Why? Because it's in the name comedy and there's nothing is intent that has to do with the intent behind it.
00:18:09
It's like that one movie where, um, Robert Downey Jr get that blackface, uh, part.
00:18:16
Oh, Um, yeah, yeah, I know what you're talking about with Tom with big names.
00:18:20
them.
00:18:21
Yes, yes, yes, yes.
00:18:22
And there's some people out there that was trying to get that, you know, whole thing pulled off.
00:18:28
Oh, this is offensive and blah, blah, blah.
00:18:31
He was making fun of the whole blackface situation, right? That there's context there, right? And I I don't understand.
00:18:42
Some people like you say, just try to make a big deal.
00:18:46
I think sometimes just so they could get their name in there, as you know, Um oh, I'm better than you, you know? I mean, look, I always say it all the time.
00:18:56
I go, there's there's outrage.
00:18:59
And then there's fake rage.
00:19:00
Yeah, and I see a lot of fake rage all the time.
00:19:04
Um, my brother in light, brother in law, talk about this a lot.
00:19:08
He's my brother in law's black, so him and I have a lot of conversations back and forth about all this kind of stuff, and him and I talk about this all the time.
00:19:16
He goes.
00:19:17
You always know fake rage to really rage, he said, because he says, you and I talk about this all the time and he says, you're always coming at it from a solution standpoint, right? You're upset about something.
00:19:28
How do we fix this? How do we do this? He goes, you know, you're angry, but you know, you're always going to, he says.
00:19:35
And then there's people that will rage because everybody else is raging.
00:19:39
You what? I mean, but I didn't get the potato thing, that's all.
00:19:43
And I'm being honest. I'm being guys.
00:19:45
I'm not sitting here going.
00:19:46
You're being too sensitive.
00:19:47
I was actually I asked Lawrence because I was trying to find out if there's something about potatoes that are offensive because they're not up here.
00:19:55
We call people potatoes all the time.
00:19:57
If you're an idiot, we call you a potato.
00:19:59
There it was, referencing the Redskin thing, and that that they weren't getting rid of the blah, blah, blah.
00:20:07
They were just changing the pun of red skin.
00:20:10
And that's that's That's not part of the joke, though.
00:20:16
You know it is a joke.
00:20:18
Take it.
00:20:19
Is that you know? See, here's something that I really do have a question for.
00:20:24
Um, I I was not brought up in a racist family, all right? I getting realized certain terms until I was in my early twenties were racist because I've never heard of him before.
00:20:37
Right? Um, I'm not gonna name him off because I know that they're Racists now that I heard him, and I'm like, What does that mean? And I was told, and I was like, That's kind of messed up.
00:20:48
Uh, but I have an eight year old nephew.
00:20:54
His favorite Marvel character is the Black Panther.
00:20:59
He wants to dress up as Black Panther for Halloween.
00:21:05
He is white.
00:21:07
Is that racist? Uh, I look no, but I get where you're going with that, you know what I mean? I know he loves the black pant there, so he's gonna want to do blackface toe to be able to do the wounding, and mom and daughter going have to tell No goal.
00:21:26
White face with the mask on.
00:21:28
Yeah, I get that.
00:21:30
I get that.
00:21:32
It's Ah, yeah.
00:21:33
Look, it's for someone that he loves and respects and admires.
00:21:38
But because of the way the culture is today, he's not allowed to show that appreciation of someone that he loves and respects.
00:21:46
And, you know, it's really funny about this whole thing.
00:21:49
Is, um, you and I would be judged very differently if people didn't know who we are.
00:21:57
I'm a nice Canadian boy from Toronto, Year from Indiana.
00:22:01
You have a bit of an accent, you know what I mean? Like compared to mine.
00:22:05
And yet, you know, you didn't grow up.
00:22:07
You learned about racist terms in your twenties and grew up in a non racial house.
00:22:11
I grew up in a very racist household.
00:22:14
Growing up, um, very racist household.
00:22:18
Um, I will fully admit, until I was about 17 years old, I was racist because I didn't know any better.
00:22:24
You know what I mean? I grew up with a racial bias, not really knowing any better, because that's the way I was raised.
00:22:31
No excuse, but 17.
00:22:33
Probably little.
00:22:34
It's probably around 14 15.
00:22:37
And then when I was about 14 or 15 I started kind of Lake.
00:22:40
That's when you start questioning things.
00:22:41
You know, your your father says.
00:22:42
And you're kind of like, uh, you what? I mean, like, What do you mean? Like, I have black friends and I'm like, What is he talking? You know what I mean? And then and then all of a sudden, you know, one day you find out, like all of a sudden you find out what racism is, and you're like, Oh my God, my father's racist.
00:22:58
You mean Oh my God, In terms I use to my black friends, our racial terms You mean while and But as a kid, I didn't know.
00:23:12
That's what it waas your ignorance.
00:23:14
And so that's why I always said there's no excuse for adult races because I grew up in a racist household and I was able to, you know, grow up into a teenager and realize my sister is exactly the same.
00:23:25
Her and I are both exactly the same.
00:23:27
We both grew up in Qana.
00:23:28
Went what? You know what I mean? It went on, Um, yeah, but it's and it's funny, like it's it's funny because it's, you know, And now here's my kids were growing up in a very you know, with black cousins, and I'm very anti racist.
00:23:45
My daughter has black lives, matters up in her window, and there's neighbors on my street that are upset by it.
00:23:50
And I just tell them to mind their business and, you know, move on their way.
00:23:53
And and But it's funny because if you and I stood in a room and they said, Pick out the guy who grew up racist But you get picked nine out of 10 times because well, obviously, because I'm from Indiana as well.
00:24:05
And Indiana is known for Elwood, which is was one of the central headquarter for the KKK.
00:24:13
I didn't know that growing up, you know, I love 22 miles from the place, but I mean, I grew up around mixed area, right? That's where I grew up.
00:24:24
I had I had Mexicans and blacks and, you know, all sorts all through my ear it Right now I live in a very similar neighborhood.
00:24:36
And to be fair, I still don't know what a lot of people consider to be racist because I don't hang out with people whom I feel is that way because, well, I don't have to, because my family, as you say, you know, So my family is not that way.
00:25:01
So a lot of the people that I hang out with aren't that way, So I don't know these terms, and 02 or three years ago I found out a term and I was like, I didn't know that was racing.
00:25:12
I didn't know Eskimo was racist, you know? I mean, had I thought it was just another term, you know? Um, so I learned every day.
00:25:23
I don't know everything, but you know what's great about you, though, and I love it, and it's it's you do it in the right way, and I try to be this way, too.
00:25:31
And I try to teach my kids to be this way is you acknowledge that you learn.
00:25:36
It's like with them Eskimo thing.
00:25:38
You're like, Well, what's wrong with that? And then I explain it to you, and you're like, Oh, okay, I get it.
00:25:42
I mean, I get it right.
00:25:43
Midst, Yeah, so it's like it's it's whereas there's I think.
00:25:48
And that's the thing.
00:25:49
I don't think it's I always call.
00:25:52
There's, there's there's always look, we all have an underlining racist tone.
00:25:56
No matter what color you are.
00:25:57
We all have some sort of racial bias, even if it's not front word, even if it's subconscious racial bias, right? Um, every single person has it, no matter what color, what age, what everything.
00:26:08
We all have some sort of unconscious racial bias.
00:26:11
Um, but the whole thing is the difference between, say, guys like you and I and somebody who's actually front worldly, racist and actually feels they hate you.
00:26:20
What I mean is you and I learned these kind of things and go Wow.
00:26:23
Okay.
00:26:24
And we don't say anymore.
00:26:26
You what? I mean, you acknowledge it's okay.
00:26:28
Wow. I didn't know that was racist.
00:26:30
Really? Yeah. Okay.
00:26:31
You know, there's almost, like a We're almost naive to some of the things, you know.
00:26:35
I mean, and then we go, Okay, Where is somebody? Like I'll say it.
00:26:38
My father would we say, Hey, that's racist.
00:26:41
You go.
00:26:42
No, it's not you.
00:26:43
What? I mean, and while dad, you know about probable block, you know these and then he would go off into a racial rains, right? And that's the difference between front word racism and and and some, you know, subconscious racial bias.
00:26:58
Um, and it That's the thing that I think it's human beings.
00:27:03
If we can live and grow, I mean, I said Washington Redskins my whole life, I did until about three years ago, when this really became, you know, a big blow up issue.
00:27:14
It didn't even occur to me that Redskins was a racial name.
00:27:20
You what? I mean, like, it didnt even until someone pointed it out to me, it didn't even occur to me.
00:27:26
Maybe that's because I'm a white guy from Toronto.
00:27:28
You what? I mean, it really could be.
00:27:32
It never even occurred to me.
00:27:34
Oh, ****.
00:27:35
Yet is racist.
00:27:36
You're referring to read people.
00:27:38
You know what I mean? I was playing an online game 12 years ago, and I had a friend of mine on there that was in my guild, so to speak.
00:27:50
It was in a memo, and he was Japanese.
00:27:54
And I use the term Jap.
00:27:57
Yeah.
00:27:58
I didn't know it was racist.
00:27:59
I just thought it was short for Japanese, you know? Hey, are you racist? No.
00:28:07
Well, that's a racist term.
00:28:09
Really? I didn't know that.
00:28:10
Yeah, I'm sorry.
00:28:12
Then you're trying to explain yourself.
00:28:14
I know. I didnt know. I promise.
00:28:16
So I didn't know, Dude.
00:28:18
I mean, we've been friends for, like, five years playing this game.
00:28:21
I use this term.
00:28:22
I didn't know I've heard it.
00:28:23
I thought it just meant short for Japanese, you know? And it makes sense, You know, sometimes you don't want to say, uh, America, the United States of America.
00:28:35
You just say America or USA or USA or something.
00:28:40
That's what I thought, you know, That was term meant for the Japanese.
00:28:44
So here's something else I want to bring up.
00:28:47
I think another big situation.
00:28:49
I don't think that there's a lot of people who who term racism when I think they actually mean culturally biased.
00:28:57
Yes.
00:28:58
Okay, I think there's a major difference that people need to acknowledge this.
00:29:03
Okay, just because you see ah, black guy walking down the street with its pants dragged down and, uh, got the blue bandanna on and, you know, kind of sucking out right? That is, that's culturally biased.
00:29:25
And that's in my that's that's kind of stereotyping.
00:29:31
And that is different than racism, right? That's like, um, going from your black thugs, your your white trailer trash, right? That's that's cultural.
00:29:44
That's cultural biased, and you need to separate people.
00:29:47
People in general need to separate between that because that is an inherent thing in your body that's telling you this person looks dangerous to me.
00:29:58
Walk away, you know, as opposed to, um, is he seeing ah well dressed black woman walking down the street.
00:30:09
And if I see a well dressed black woman walking down street on one side of the street, and I see some white dude in a tank top and beaten up pants with holes in it and you know scraggly and shaved head and all that I would walk to decide with well dressed black woman in a heartbeat, you know, just because it's it's, you know, deep inside your culturally biased.
00:30:33
And you had this thing.
00:30:34
Well, it seems safer over here, right? Yeah, and you know it.
00:30:38
And then that's when you start talking about appropriation.
00:30:40
You start talking.
00:30:41
It's right called on that subconscious bias or than some conscious racism.
00:30:46
You know, in those undertones that we don't even recognize that we have in us.
00:30:49
And it's not necessarily, I always say to like, there's a couple different kinds of racism.
00:30:54
There's like ignorant racism and then ignorant, ignorant racism like hateful racism and ignorant racism.
00:31:00
There's people who do racist things.
00:31:02
I don't even realize they're doing anything wrong.
00:31:04
You what I mean and you have to explain them to people.
00:31:08
Um, you know, my mother calls everybody ******.
00:31:11
Whether you're white, black, you and I mean brown, you're just, you know, and I've had to explain to her why if she says that to somebody of color, it's offensive.
00:31:21
But she's like, I call you ****** and I'm like, I know when I try to get you to stop because if you say that to somebody have caught to somebody of color, it's a very offensive term to them.
00:31:31
And then I had to show her that people use it as a hateful, racist way.
00:31:36
So my mother wasn't had, didn't have this undertone of hate.
00:31:39
She just Everybody's a ******.
00:31:40
You really mean like she and she's like Okay, so it's like, you know, but every once a while, because it's so ingrained in her, she'll say to somebody when she's upset, you know, your ****** over Mom, stop, you know, And again it could be it should never.
00:31:55
It's never towards any sort of race group.
00:31:57
It's just that's what people are, and it's and there's a difference.
00:32:00
So I would say my mother is an ignorant racist, not a hateful racist.
00:32:04
You what I mean, because there's ignorance to the undertones that uses but no, exactly right.
00:32:09
It's look, I've always said it.
00:32:10
I'll give you a better example, though, because I think you said it great.
00:32:13
But if I was walking down the street or I'm going use museum.
00:32:16
But if the white guys walking down the street say, with ripped up jeans, a tank top in the blue bandanna on and the black guys addressed the exact same way across the street, a majority of white people would look at the white guy and say, What's wrong with this poor guy and a majority way people look at the black guy and say, Look at this thug, right? And that again, they don't do it in a racist weight.
00:32:38
But it's an undertone of racism, right? It's if you said to turn down this free you were, But I think it gave people the option.
00:32:48
What side is gonna walk on? I think a lot of white people would walk on the way because this is just a crazy maybe a crackhead over here, right? But then again, you know, I have this funny feeling that, you know, if you ask the same question to a black guy, the black guy would walk to the black guy side.
00:33:02
Oh, yeah, because that's a crazy white cracker over there.
00:33:04
Yes, so it's and that's again.
00:33:07
And that's the underlying subconscious racism in that guy night.
00:33:10
Not that black guy, a white guy, whoever would maybe who's choosing to go to the same side? They're not sitting there saying I don't like him because he's white.
00:33:18
I'm more comfortable with my kind.
00:33:22
But at the same time, I think we're at a point where we should just be comfortable.
00:33:26
Whatever you and I mean.
00:33:27
Like you say, You see two guys walking like that, you're like the hell with this, all right? Right, like I'm not walking anywhere.
00:33:33
I'm going, I'm going, right? Exactly.
00:33:36
And I think, you know, normal people would want to do that.
00:33:38
I don't care what color you are when you're staggering down the road.
00:33:41
I don't want to deal with you, right? No, it's you know, it's It's a thing, and I think that at times, if I'm gonna be honest, it's I always say, Even though I'm like a ago, I don't collectible warrior.
00:33:54
It's such a bad, stupid term because I'm not like being brave at all but I fight for it.
00:34:00
I mean, I'm an activist for it, or whatever you want.
00:34:03
Advocates will call myself an advocate, Francie.
00:34:05
Racism.
00:34:06
I don't do enough to be an activist, Um, but at the same time, it's like every time I think I understand what I'm talking about.
00:34:15
My nephew tells me a story of something that happened to him, and it just rips my heart apart.
00:34:21
You what? I mean and you kind of go, It's not going away, you know what I mean? Like, it's it's not going away.
00:34:29
And I think that's where the sadness comes.
00:34:32
But I think that, you know, I think shows like ours where we can have an open discussion about it, agree and disagree on things.
00:34:40
Um, be comfortable enough to talk about subconscious racism and blatant racism and hate non hate this and that.
00:34:46
I mean, those are all the little steps, right? Maybe somebody is listening to us today, and they're going to start thinking about the terms they use.
00:34:52
You want me to go? Holy those air racist.
00:34:54
You know what I mean? Cause that's possible.
00:34:57
I I agree with you.
00:34:58
Um what I never realized until my brother in law pointed out to me was how racist Bugs Bunny is, you know, like like it.
00:35:07
But it blew my mind.
00:35:09
And, you know, I mean, he's showing me all the stuff I'm going.
00:35:11
Oh, my God.
00:35:14
Like it's It's It's not even just like the way they dress and talk like they actually say racist things.
00:35:21
No, you got Remember Bugs Bunny was back in the forties and fifties, You know where it initiated so that it was It was still that that whole culture back then.
00:35:32
So and it was Southern, and it was built, you know, not Disney, but still, it kind of had that Southern Phil.
00:35:42
That's where you got a lot of the characters.
00:35:45
Yeah, totally blew my mind.
00:35:47
But as a kid, you don't need notice any of that stuff, you know? You don't notice it. It's just funny.
00:35:51
Yeah, it's just funny until till here and had a look, and someone shows you videos.
00:35:55
Look, and you're like, Oh, my God.
00:35:57
I watched that, Lawrence, I think we did a good 36 minutes without offending anybody with actually having a good conversation.
00:36:07
I don't I hope I hope we get? I hope neither.
00:36:10
I almost want to quit when we're ahead.
00:36:11
I don't know about you a little bit.
00:36:14
I want to say that when it comes to the Washington football team, better late than never.
00:36:22
Okay, at least at least it's been acknowledged.
00:36:26
I understand it took us smack at your wallet in order to get it done, but at least you got it done, and we look forward to see what your next mascot will be.
00:36:37
Hopefully, it'll be something a little bit, uh, Mawr accepted and not a red potato.
00:36:45
Yeah, no, that's what I learned today.
00:36:47
I got a question for you.
00:36:49
Do you think they'll do a free Jersey Exchange? Because I remember when Aaron Hernandez got arrested, Robert crafted a free Jersey exchange.
00:37:01
Anybody with a Hernandez jersey could bring it to the pro shop in exchange their jersey.
00:37:05
That's one player I know. I'm just asking.
00:37:09
Do you think they'll do it? I'm just wondering.
00:37:10
I really current players.
00:37:13
Maybe.
00:37:14
I doubt they'll do pass players, but, like maybe Wayne Haskins, ask Young.
00:37:19
Yeah, they might do it with current players, but if you try to pull that off with old players they'll go bankrupt overnight.
00:37:26
You know, I don't think that they would do that.
00:37:29
And you can't.
00:37:31
I don't.
00:37:32
I think it would be very unfair to force them to do that, because then all you're doing is hurting the sport, you know, by by removing a football team and making them go bankrupt.
00:37:43
Speaking of old players, if I could change the subject quickly before we say goodbye.
00:37:47
Sure.
00:37:48
I found an article called The Five Best Players Who played for Washington that you forgot about.
00:37:56
And I'll tell you the truth, I remembered to of the five.
00:38:01
I forgot all these guys.
00:38:02
So I'm going to name them to you, and I want it.
00:38:05
I want you to tell me if you remember them or not, OK? Darryl Greene.
00:38:08
John Riggins.
00:38:09
Oh, no.
00:38:10
So the 1st 1 that I didn't remember was Deacon Jones? Yep.
00:38:14
My know Deacon Jones.
00:38:15
You remember he played for Washington defensive defensive lineman? Yeah, but did you remember him playing for Washington? Yes, because I remember him was a ram.
00:38:24
Yeah, I remember.
00:38:25
Missed in Washington as well.
00:38:27
Okay.
00:38:28
Do you remember Shaun Alexander playing for Washington? Mm, No.
00:38:34
Uh, no, I did not either.
00:38:37
I didn't even know he played anywhere after Seattle.
00:38:40
I'm gonna be on its with you.
00:38:41
I thought he just died out of the league after Seattle, but he finished in Washington.
00:38:45
Yeah, I didn't know that.
00:38:47
All right, This one.
00:38:48
I remember Donovan McNabb.
00:38:50
Yes, great.
00:38:53
Jason Taylor.
00:38:55
I do not remember playing for Washington Hall of Famer Jason Taylor.
00:39:01
I No, I don't.
00:39:04
I mean, obviously Miami, but that's it.
00:39:08
Yeah.
00:39:09
He had 3.
00:39:10
5 sacks in 13 games for Washington.
00:39:14
Okay.
00:39:15
And then the 3rd 1 I'm gonna be honest with you Forget.
00:39:19
Remember, I didn't even know.
00:39:23
And this is probably sure in my age, you're probably to go. Oh, yeah.
00:39:26
Dion Sanders, planning school. Dallas.
00:39:39
I don't remember him playing for Washington right after Dallas.
00:39:42
After that, Sanders spent five seasons of Dallas Cowboys.
00:39:45
That's when Washington came in.
00:39:47
Yeah, I had no idea that.
00:39:51
Did he do a darn thing for Washington? I'm gonna look it up, E on standards, because I was just looking at this right before we came on, and I was like, I do not I did not know that Dion Sanders played for Washington.
00:40:03
May neither remember Atlanta nine years.
00:40:08
Well, you know what? Good enough.
00:40:10
He played 16 games.
00:40:13
Four interceptions, uh, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries.
00:40:24
I mean, was that his last season? Was this final Well, that no cause.
00:40:28
Then after that, then he retired from 20.
00:40:31
Yet then he retired in 2001 to 2003.
00:40:34
And then who did he finish his career with in 2004? In 2005? Who? The Baltimore Ravens.
00:40:44
I didn't know that either.
00:40:48
Owner Joe Me that I don't know.
00:40:50
Hopefully is not watching me.
00:40:51
Doesn't watches that we can quit.
00:40:52
I'll quiz him tomorrow.
00:40:55
You might not be, will be on, but I will quiz him two more about it.
00:40:58
But yeah, he played for washing for a season.
00:40:59
It made four interceptions.
00:41:00
It's not a bad year.
00:41:01
No, no, that's not bad.
00:41:04
He had 41 tackles, like 41 tackles.
00:41:09
38 of them were solo.
00:41:11
Well, it's probably still really quick at that age.
00:41:14
Yeah, but I have no memory.
00:41:16
No memory of Dion Sanders played for Baltimore or I thought he finished after Dallas.
00:41:21
I'm gonna be honest with you.
00:41:22
I thought his career after Dallas.
00:41:24
I used to actually get it confused because I used to think he was with San Francisco after Dallas.
00:41:31
But he was a San Francisco before.
00:41:33
Knows it was Atlanta.
00:41:34
San Francisco, Dallas.
00:41:36
Did he win a Super Bowl of San Francisco? I think so.
00:41:42
That was not Not sure.
00:41:44
No, that was not before that wasn't a Steve Young era looking here.
00:41:49
1994 teams stats.
00:41:53
Sam School won their division playoff results.
00:41:56
Yeah, San Francisco won the Super Bowl.
00:41:58
Okay.
00:41:59

Guys, I'm sorry.
00:46:09
I'm just increasing my stuff so that I can be better at bringing content for you.
00:46:15
I will tell you one thing.
00:46:16
No, Lawrence, I've learned something ever since we started doing SportsCastr news.
00:46:21
But in April, about April, just this cove, it was coming in.
00:46:25
I remember that, Um I can't do anything on my own anymore.
00:46:30
I just I need partners now because I flounder by myself.
00:46:35
I used to be able to do an hour on my own.
00:46:38
No problem.
00:46:39
Now I sit there, and I think I did this whole good long thing.
00:46:42
I look at the time and I got four minutes. Right.
00:46:45
I've seen that happen with me as well.
00:46:47
Man, I thought I got you. I got you. I understand.
00:46:49
It's the only reason my stream earlier went 45 minute solo.
00:46:55
It was because I was talking about my own favorite team.
00:47:02
And when you're talking about your favorite team, you could talk about him until the cows come home.
00:47:08
Right? But when you're talking about a different team, there's only so much you could say until someone speaks up and then you got somethingto converse with? Yeah, it's it's phenomenal.
00:47:20
And you guys have ruined it for me.
00:47:23
As soon as you kick me out of this little posse or you guys leave, I'm done.
00:47:26
I'm gonna retire because I will not be able to pick up but myself ever again.
00:47:31
Uh huh. You don't say goodbye.
00:47:34
I'm just gonna keep talking, you know that.
00:47:35
All right, Well, hey, don't forget hit the like.
00:47:39
Give me a follow. Give. Ray.
00:47:41
Apollo, go find Joe.
00:47:43
New beau if you've got time.
00:47:45
If you don't, he's not here.
00:47:46
So hello, Uh, until next time, I'm Lord's own rare out SportsCastr News.
00:47:53
Have a good one.

Redskins’ social-media rebrand kicks off, shares excited player reactions

The NFL’s Washington franchise has officially retired the “Redskins” name and has now begun the process to rebrand the entirety of their presence, both physical and digital, to the temporary “Washington Football Team” name. If you look up @WashintgonNFL on Twitter, you’ll notice that the team has already started with its social media and the […]

00:00:00
uh, got a hair in my hate it when you get with eyelashes, that airbending back in your eyeball and with that being said, Hey, what's going on? I'm Lourdes on with SportsCastr news today with me.
00:00:18
I have Ray wrote, and Joe was not able to join us today.
00:00:25
He is busy on the road working.
00:00:27
So we are going to get into the new news.
00:00:33
The new news of news and talk about the Washington football team for the NFL over under on the amount of times that we use The R word today is three.
00:00:51
I'm going to try to go under, but, um, yeah, we'll see.
00:00:57
So they just released a little image of their uniform and it is plain.
00:01:06
It is either red top, white bottom or white top red bottom.
00:01:10
Their helmet basically is completely playing except for the number.
00:01:16
From what I can tell, the number of the player is on the side of it.
00:01:21
They don't have a mascot yet, so they can't really put their mascot on the helmet or were on their jersey anywhere.
00:01:28
So to me, it looks like a ah, an NC double a college football team.
00:01:34
You know their uniforms.
00:01:35
What do you think? Right.
00:01:38
Um, I think that the next time a team decides they're going to change their name, change or look, find a new mascot and all that kind of stuff.
00:01:48
Perhaps perhaps you should start planning it before the season starts.
00:01:52
So you don't end up in this very vanilla generic kind of way.
00:01:57
I mean, there's been a controversy about the I'm going to say it, but not in referring to them.
00:02:02
So this doesn't count for the over under.
00:02:04
But the Redskin name has been under scrutiny for at least the last five years.
00:02:11
The fact that Dan Snyder didn't have any foresight to realize at some point in time he was going toe have probably have to change the name either.
00:02:20
He's very arrogant.
00:02:21
There are very stupid.
00:02:23
You could have had all this stuff preplanned.
00:02:26
And the reveal could have been we're no longer using the Redskins names and go with what? I think they're gonna be the Washington Red Wolves.
00:02:35
Yeah, they should have had at least a backup somewhere.
00:02:38
I agree with you. Some kind of backup, obviously.
00:02:41
Um, like you said they had five years at least to sit here and think about that.
00:02:46
And I mean, there's a ton of names.
00:02:49
There's a ton of mascots they could have went with of.
00:02:53
And you knew the push was gonna happen.
00:02:56
You knew it was gonna happen at some point, because it was it was strong, like you said five years ago.
00:03:03
And then in the last couple of years, this whole Ah, I hate this.
00:03:09
Call it this, But it is what it is.
00:03:10
The cancel culture has came out, you know, and has just gained moment.
00:03:15
Um, you should have seen this coming, and you should have had something set up.
00:03:20
I'm sure he's got PR people.
00:03:23
Every everyone who owns such a big business like this has got PR people.
00:03:27
And they got They should have been whispering in his ear this whole time.
00:03:29
Hey, you need to get something set up.
00:03:31
You need to get something set up.
00:03:32
And either they were any adored.
00:03:34
Um, or they weren't.
00:03:35
And he should have had someone new, someone different, working with him on PR.
00:03:40
Yeah, you had to have some sort of backup plan, and they didn't.
00:03:46
And again, I just think that that's the arrogance of Dan Snyder.
00:03:49
I think he believed that it's my team.
00:03:51
I don't want to change the name.
00:03:52
And I'm never going to be in a position that I have to change names.
00:03:56
Well, Dan, here we are.
00:03:58
And you are now the Washington football team, and you look like a You look a fool right now.
00:04:07
Yeah, By the way, Lawrence **** for calves just followed you.
00:04:11
Awesome.
00:04:12
Awesome.
00:04:13
Thank you so much, but yeah, I think that it's Ah.
00:04:18
I mean, it's just Ah, you know, if let's say the Patriots name was under scrutiny for whatever reason, maybe the English are offended and then, you know, and we start getting that, you know, thing, or the Colts, it becomes a caught topic main because, you know, colts throw cowboys off and hurt cowboys, and you know what I mean, and I'm not.
00:04:41
Look, I'm not discriminating against the indigenous people that I'm not not acknowledging that the Redskins is a, you know, was it was it was ah, derogatory name towards indigenous people.
00:04:52
So I probably joke, was probably in bad taste, but, um, I would hope that Robert Kraft and when that screwed, is coming down, which starts saying, just in case.
00:05:05
I mean, look, I'm a business owner.
00:05:08
I am a manager.
00:05:09
I do things and I always have a just in case in my back pocket because things could blow up at any time.
00:05:18
I could get in email from a guy named Nick who tells me, Ray, you're no longer on SportsCastr, and I go, Oh, no.
00:05:28
But there's always a backup plan in my back pocket.
00:05:31
Yeah, the fact that you run a multibillion dollar company inside of a multibillion dollar corporation and you're putting out absolute dribble for your players, your fans and the rest the National Football League.
00:05:46
I mean, Washington just has to be embarrassed about the way this whole thing is going down as it is, as the situation now were a lot of professional sports teams, even college, high school, you know, in any kind of sporting event that has some kind of ah mascot needs to take a cue from this.
00:06:10
I don't care if you're called the second.
00:06:15
I was going to say sacra Julia, but then that rolls right into the r word.
00:06:20
Uh, so the New York football giants will call it that, you know, like you said, you need a backup name just because of the cancel culture that's happening right now.
00:06:32
You need to take president with what's going on and make sure, And like you said, you need a back up plan for everything.
00:06:40
You got backup plans in case there's a massive money shortage.
00:06:45
Player shortage, power outage.
00:06:48
Ah, this or anything, right? You have a backup plan for darn near anything.
00:06:53
You need to have a backup plan for something like this as well.
00:06:56
I mean, this is just another example of the NFL league.
00:07:00
We love the league.
00:07:01
We support a league.
00:07:02
Me talk about.
00:07:03
Look, yes, we're paid to talk about the National Football League, but we all started you myself, Joe.
00:07:10
We all started his fans, Man, we all just started his fans doing podcast that nobody was listening.
00:07:16
Teoh and they gave us a platform to, you know, do a different version of our podcast.
00:07:22
But at the end of the day, it's, you know, we were all fans that talk about the NFL, but I think that it's also not unfair to say that.
00:07:31
I mean, this league gets caught with their foot in their mouth or their pants down or their underwear on fire.
00:07:37
Whatever adjective you want to put in there 10 times a year, you and I mean they get caught, you know, with their pants down.
00:07:44
And it's all reactionary.
00:07:46
It's all.
00:07:47
It's all reactionary, and they never explained decisions, and they just come out and do things.
00:07:53
And again, I believe a bit of it is arrogance from from ownership arrogance from Roger the Clown, which is, I refer to him as, you know, I'm sorry, Roger if I offend you.
00:08:05
But Roger Goodell I mean, there's inconsistencies amongst punishments.
00:08:09
There's inconsistencies amongst morals and standards.
00:08:13
Um, I know this sounds like sour g****s, but it's not.
00:08:16
It's just this is really my moral feeling.
00:08:18
Forget this local for a second, but you're telling me that a guy deflating some footballs is worth four games, but a guy cold.
00:08:28
Clocking his wife in an elevator is work, too.
00:08:31
And the only reason that he served any more games was because of the public outcry of how ridiculous it was or when the New York Giants kicker, after the Ray Rice situation, admitted to abusing his wife got one game, but Ezekiel Elliott get six.
00:08:50
Tom Brady gets four.
00:08:51
If you know Josh Gordon keeps getting and, you know, indefinitely suspended for marijuana, it's just the inconsistency in the arrogance of the league.
00:09:01
That's the There's no presidents for anything.
00:09:04
And I think that they constantly kick getting caught with their pants down.
00:09:07
And it's because of this very thing.
00:09:09
While don't worry, I'm not gonna come up with a backup plan is I'm never gonna feel enough pressure to change the Redskins name.
00:09:16
Well, wait a minute.
00:09:17
Nikes leaving. Budweiser's leaving this place.
00:09:19
Well, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
00:09:21
Hold on, hold on. Let me reconsider.
00:09:22
You know, right and again, they got caught with their pants down.
00:09:26
I mean, listen, when you start seeing companies like Nike publicly backing, uh, somebody like Colin Kaepernick making him the front of their campaign, you have to understand where there as a company where their moral values lie, or at least what morals they believe will sell more merchandise.
00:09:50
And the Kaepernick things should have told you.
00:09:52
Hey, man, maybe at sometime they're going to come after are insensitive name.
00:09:57
And I think that if I'm the Kansas City Chiefs.
00:10:01
I'm probably I don't think the Chiefs need to change their name, but I don't think that grown white men should be dressing up is Indian Chiefs and doing the Tomahawk chop and playing that, you know, playing it across the stadium.
00:10:18
The Atlanta Braves got rid of the Hawk, I think, two years ago, but the Chiefs were still doing it.
00:10:23
I would be prepared because now that the Seahawks have changed and you may not know this, Lawrence.
00:10:29
But up here in Canada, we had in the CFL, the Canadian Football League.
00:10:32
We had a team called the Edmonton Eskimos.
00:10:37
And about three days after the Washington football team announced they were retiring, the Redskins name the the Edmonton football team announced that they were retiring. Eskimo.
00:10:51
So it's I didn't know Eskimo was a derogatory term for into it.
00:10:57
It's It's there, actually called in you.
00:11:00
It's an Eskimo was what we called them.
00:11:03
That's what I found out.
00:11:05
Ah, a couple years ago.
00:11:07
Yeah, yeah.
00:11:08
What we call them Eskimos.
00:11:10
They're actually they actually refer to themselves as in you.
00:11:12
It's way came up, we gal, but that's still I mean in my That's like saying this is my personal opinion.
00:11:26
Okay, Um, that's like having a name, but somebody else calling you by their other name.
00:11:33
I mean, they might be, and they consider themselves in you.
00:11:38
It's with that.
00:11:40
That's like saying, whatever the word for Italian, the in mind that my name and Mexican is Lawrence O that would, you know, if someone called me Lorenzo, Can I throw a hissy fit? I shouldn't be able to because it needs Lawrence in Spanish or Mexican.
00:12:01
It is.
00:12:02
Um, Eskimo is a much Eskimo.
00:12:06
API in Canada is about his touches.
00:12:08
The subject as Redskin is in the States.
00:12:11
Um, I ask him Oh, may not be as big in the U. S.
00:12:15
Like Redskins.
00:12:16
Not a big wasn't a big controversy.
00:12:17
Appears we didn't have teams, but Eskimos been controversial for a few years up here in a lot of indigenous groups have.
00:12:26
It's and you know what I mean.
00:12:27
I don't know the U.
00:12:28
S.
00:12:29
History, just to be honest, I know it's is in football, but it's since we're on the subject.
00:12:32
I don't know the U.
00:12:33
S history of the treatment of I know down there you know, Native Americans.
00:12:39
But up here, um, did you know, here's I'll give you one example of what the Canadian government did.
00:12:47
So in World War Two, we had a draft, right? And, you know, indigenous people, Native American, 80 Canadians.
00:12:55
They were drafted and they went over to Europe, and they fought in the war.
00:12:59
But there was a rule that Canada had If you left your reserve, you weren't allowed to come back and claim your Indian status.
00:13:07
You what? I mean, you have to stay on your reserve.
00:13:09
So they got drafted, forced to go to Europe.
00:13:12
And then when they came back, the Canadian government said, Well, no, you left the reserve.
00:13:17
You've lost your status.
00:13:19
That's dirty.
00:13:20
Yeah.
00:13:21
So it's a very, very weak that our government man did a lot of nasty underhand things.
00:13:26
And I'm not talking 200 years ago.
00:13:29
I'm talking as early as 50 60 years ago and we're still doing.
00:13:33
We're about to put a pipe right through their land that they own you.
00:13:36
What? I mean, so we do a lot of underhanded stuff to them.
00:13:39
So that's why it's a very touchy subject up here.
00:13:42
Okay? all this. Leave it at that.
00:13:44
So, you know, they basically said the white man gave us Eskimo.
00:13:47
We do not want to be referred to his Eskimos.
00:13:49
What? I mean, then it so it's, you know, and trust me, If I went into the deep history of what we did, it's our government did not treat English, right? This was after 18 12.
00:14:00
This was we were still in English colony.
00:14:02
And you guys were America.
00:14:03
Yeah.
00:14:04
So, uh, it's ah, a lot of a lot of shady stuff.
00:14:10
Well, I mean, ****ty stuff happens all over the world to, and we just have to own up to it.
00:14:17
You know, if you in your country or you as a person, done something shady and when If you admit to it and say, you know what, I'm going to try to be a better person or a better government and admit to what you did and say, Hey, I'm gonna try not to do anything like this and change my ways.
00:14:37
I think that should be right there.
00:14:39
That that should be commended, you know? No, I agreed.
00:14:43
You 100%. I see that all the time.
00:14:45
And you know me.
00:14:46
I'm and you see me on Twitter.
00:14:47
I am a fight for I am, Ah, a warrior for racism, anti racism.
00:14:52
I don't fight for racism, but I'm a warrior for anti racism.
00:14:56
I get into arguments, fights? I have public breakdowns on here, you know? I mean what I always admit the people I've said racist things in the past, I'll probably say racist things in the future.
00:15:06
It may not be intentional, but it's gonna happen.
00:15:09
Um, it's at those point times.
00:15:11
Yeah, you're right.
00:15:12
You have to admit to it, you have to learn from it.
00:15:15
And you need to become a better person about her country, about a government, whatever it may be.
00:15:19
So I think Edmonton dropping this name is that sort of that step towards like, Okay, you know what? We're going to recognize that it offends.
00:15:27
You were gonna recognize what we did to your people, and we're gonna move forward.
00:15:31
And I think that's a thing.
00:15:32
It's the people who it's the people who defend their bad decisions or defend their You know what it mean to say it right? You know, you guys are all too sensitive will know you offended somebody? Shut up! Eat it.
00:15:45
You what? I mean and and go and look em also.
00:15:49
No.
00:15:51
I'm going to say people are a little too sensitive about things.
00:15:54
And I'm not talking race or ***ism or any of the big issues.
00:15:59
I mean, people could be offended because I have a blue shirt on right now.
00:16:03
I mean, there's sometimes yes, people are too sensitive.
00:16:07
Um, I don't really get this joke.
00:16:11
So I'm gonna ask you, Lawrence, cause you might get it.
00:16:14
Okay, if I could, because it makes it.
00:16:17
I was just really? So you know who Mike Huckabee is, right? Yes.
00:16:21
The former governor of Arkansas.
00:16:24
He tweeted out today the Washington Redskins will be renamed the Washington Russ.
00:16:31
It's they can play mashed, fried, boiled or hash browns, but mostly they'll play baked.
00:16:40
Okay, that's funny.
00:16:41
He's getting torched for it right now.
00:16:44
That's funny.
00:16:46
That's funny, because the bake thing has to do with the legalizing of marijuana and russet potato being baked.
00:16:55
That's kind of funny.
00:16:56
But at the same time, I okay, but here's my thing.
00:17:02
Can you explain to me because maybe it's ah, it's an American thing that I don't get, uh, because he's getting torched for it right now.
00:17:10
Okay, now I could just because he's Huckabee.
00:17:13
That could be one of the things.
00:17:14
But even clutch points is ripping him apart for why is that offensive? That's what I want to ask you because I can't figure it out.
00:17:20
That's why I'm asking you.
00:17:22
It shouldn't be, uh, and it's the truth.
00:17:25
It should not be offensive because it's a simple fact that it was meant in humor and only in humor, right? And in my opinion, if it is clear humor not intended to offend people, just as you know a joke, comedians do it all the time and get a free pass right all the time.
00:17:50
You see blackface comedians, you see white face comedians.
00:17:54
You see comedian saying and doing things that would normally be very, very controversial, and they get passes.
00:18:01
Why? Because it's in the name comedy and there's nothing is intent that has to do with the intent behind it.
00:18:09
It's like that one movie where, um, Robert Downey Jr get that blackface, uh, part.
00:18:16
Oh, Um, yeah, yeah, I know what you're talking about with Tom with big names.
00:18:20
them.
00:18:21
Yes, yes, yes, yes.
00:18:22
And there's some people out there that was trying to get that, you know, whole thing pulled off.
00:18:28
Oh, this is offensive and blah, blah, blah.
00:18:31
He was making fun of the whole blackface situation, right? That there's context there, right? And I I don't understand.
00:18:42
Some people like you say, just try to make a big deal.
00:18:46
I think sometimes just so they could get their name in there, as you know, Um oh, I'm better than you, you know? I mean, look, I always say it all the time.
00:18:56
I go, there's there's outrage.
00:18:59
And then there's fake rage.
00:19:00
Yeah, and I see a lot of fake rage all the time.
00:19:04
Um, my brother in light, brother in law, talk about this a lot.
00:19:08
He's my brother in law's black, so him and I have a lot of conversations back and forth about all this kind of stuff, and him and I talk about this all the time.
00:19:16
He goes.
00:19:17
You always know fake rage to really rage, he said, because he says, you and I talk about this all the time and he says, you're always coming at it from a solution standpoint, right? You're upset about something.
00:19:28
How do we fix this? How do we do this? He goes, you know, you're angry, but you know, you're always going to, he says.
00:19:35
And then there's people that will rage because everybody else is raging.
00:19:39
You what? I mean, but I didn't get the potato thing, that's all.
00:19:43
And I'm being honest. I'm being guys.
00:19:45
I'm not sitting here going.
00:19:46
You're being too sensitive.
00:19:47
I was actually I asked Lawrence because I was trying to find out if there's something about potatoes that are offensive because they're not up here.
00:19:55
We call people potatoes all the time.
00:19:57
If you're an idiot, we call you a potato.
00:19:59
There it was, referencing the Redskin thing, and that that they weren't getting rid of the blah, blah, blah.
00:20:07
They were just changing the pun of red skin.
00:20:10
And that's that's That's not part of the joke, though.
00:20:16
You know it is a joke.
00:20:18
Take it.
00:20:19
Is that you know? See, here's something that I really do have a question for.
00:20:24
Um, I I was not brought up in a racist family, all right? I getting realized certain terms until I was in my early twenties were racist because I've never heard of him before.
00:20:37
Right? Um, I'm not gonna name him off because I know that they're Racists now that I heard him, and I'm like, What does that mean? And I was told, and I was like, That's kind of messed up.
00:20:48
Uh, but I have an eight year old nephew.
00:20:54
His favorite Marvel character is the Black Panther.
00:20:59
He wants to dress up as Black Panther for Halloween.
00:21:05
He is white.
00:21:07
Is that racist? Uh, I look no, but I get where you're going with that, you know what I mean? I know he loves the black pant there, so he's gonna want to do blackface toe to be able to do the wounding, and mom and daughter going have to tell No goal.
00:21:26
White face with the mask on.
00:21:28
Yeah, I get that.
00:21:30
I get that.
00:21:32
It's Ah, yeah.
00:21:33
Look, it's for someone that he loves and respects and admires.
00:21:38
But because of the way the culture is today, he's not allowed to show that appreciation of someone that he loves and respects.
00:21:46
And, you know, it's really funny about this whole thing.
00:21:49
Is, um, you and I would be judged very differently if people didn't know who we are.
00:21:57
I'm a nice Canadian boy from Toronto, Year from Indiana.
00:22:01
You have a bit of an accent, you know what I mean? Like compared to mine.
00:22:05
And yet, you know, you didn't grow up.
00:22:07
You learned about racist terms in your twenties and grew up in a non racial house.
00:22:11
I grew up in a very racist household.
00:22:14
Growing up, um, very racist household.
00:22:18
Um, I will fully admit, until I was about 17 years old, I was racist because I didn't know any better.
00:22:24
You know what I mean? I grew up with a racial bias, not really knowing any better, because that's the way I was raised.
00:22:31
No excuse, but 17.
00:22:33
Probably little.
00:22:34
It's probably around 14 15.
00:22:37
And then when I was about 14 or 15 I started kind of Lake.
00:22:40
That's when you start questioning things.
00:22:41
You know, your your father says.
00:22:42
And you're kind of like, uh, you what? I mean, like, What do you mean? Like, I have black friends and I'm like, What is he talking? You know what I mean? And then and then all of a sudden, you know, one day you find out, like all of a sudden you find out what racism is, and you're like, Oh my God, my father's racist.
00:22:58
You mean Oh my God, In terms I use to my black friends, our racial terms You mean while and But as a kid, I didn't know.
00:23:12
That's what it waas your ignorance.
00:23:14
And so that's why I always said there's no excuse for adult races because I grew up in a racist household and I was able to, you know, grow up into a teenager and realize my sister is exactly the same.
00:23:25
Her and I are both exactly the same.
00:23:27
We both grew up in Qana.
00:23:28
Went what? You know what I mean? It went on, Um, yeah, but it's and it's funny, like it's it's funny because it's, you know, And now here's my kids were growing up in a very you know, with black cousins, and I'm very anti racist.
00:23:45
My daughter has black lives, matters up in her window, and there's neighbors on my street that are upset by it.
00:23:50
And I just tell them to mind their business and, you know, move on their way.
00:23:53
And and But it's funny because if you and I stood in a room and they said, Pick out the guy who grew up racist But you get picked nine out of 10 times because well, obviously, because I'm from Indiana as well.
00:24:05
And Indiana is known for Elwood, which is was one of the central headquarter for the KKK.
00:24:13
I didn't know that growing up, you know, I love 22 miles from the place, but I mean, I grew up around mixed area, right? That's where I grew up.
00:24:24
I had I had Mexicans and blacks and, you know, all sorts all through my ear it Right now I live in a very similar neighborhood.
00:24:36
And to be fair, I still don't know what a lot of people consider to be racist because I don't hang out with people whom I feel is that way because, well, I don't have to, because my family, as you say, you know, So my family is not that way.
00:25:01
So a lot of the people that I hang out with aren't that way, So I don't know these terms, and 02 or three years ago I found out a term and I was like, I didn't know that was racing.
00:25:12
I didn't know Eskimo was racist, you know? I mean, had I thought it was just another term, you know? Um, so I learned every day.
00:25:23
I don't know everything, but you know what's great about you, though, and I love it, and it's it's you do it in the right way, and I try to be this way, too.
00:25:31
And I try to teach my kids to be this way is you acknowledge that you learn.
00:25:36
It's like with them Eskimo thing.
00:25:38
You're like, Well, what's wrong with that? And then I explain it to you, and you're like, Oh, okay, I get it.
00:25:42
I mean, I get it right.
00:25:43
Midst, Yeah, so it's like it's it's whereas there's I think.
00:25:48
And that's the thing.
00:25:49
I don't think it's I always call.
00:25:52
There's, there's there's always look, we all have an underlining racist tone.
00:25:56
No matter what color you are.
00:25:57
We all have some sort of racial bias, even if it's not front word, even if it's subconscious racial bias, right? Um, every single person has it, no matter what color, what age, what everything.
00:26:08
We all have some sort of unconscious racial bias.
00:26:11
Um, but the whole thing is the difference between, say, guys like you and I and somebody who's actually front worldly, racist and actually feels they hate you.
00:26:20
What I mean is you and I learned these kind of things and go Wow.
00:26:23
Okay.
00:26:24
And we don't say anymore.
00:26:26
You what? I mean, you acknowledge it's okay.
00:26:28
Wow. I didn't know that was racist.
00:26:30
Really? Yeah. Okay.
00:26:31
You know, there's almost, like a We're almost naive to some of the things, you know.
00:26:35
I mean, and then we go, Okay, Where is somebody? Like I'll say it.
00:26:38
My father would we say, Hey, that's racist.
00:26:41
You go.
00:26:42
No, it's not you.
00:26:43
What? I mean, and while dad, you know about probable block, you know these and then he would go off into a racial rains, right? And that's the difference between front word racism and and and some, you know, subconscious racial bias.
00:26:58
Um, and it That's the thing that I think it's human beings.
00:27:03
If we can live and grow, I mean, I said Washington Redskins my whole life, I did until about three years ago, when this really became, you know, a big blow up issue.
00:27:14
It didn't even occur to me that Redskins was a racial name.
00:27:20
You what? I mean, like, it didnt even until someone pointed it out to me, it didn't even occur to me.
00:27:26
Maybe that's because I'm a white guy from Toronto.
00:27:28
You what? I mean, it really could be.
00:27:32
It never even occurred to me.
00:27:34
Oh, ****.
00:27:35
Yet is racist.
00:27:36
You're referring to read people.
00:27:38
You know what I mean? I was playing an online game 12 years ago, and I had a friend of mine on there that was in my guild, so to speak.
00:27:50
It was in a memo, and he was Japanese.
00:27:54
And I use the term Jap.
00:27:57
Yeah.
00:27:58
I didn't know it was racist.
00:27:59
I just thought it was short for Japanese, you know? Hey, are you racist? No.
00:28:07
Well, that's a racist term.
00:28:09
Really? I didn't know that.
00:28:10
Yeah, I'm sorry.
00:28:12
Then you're trying to explain yourself.
00:28:14
I know. I didnt know. I promise.
00:28:16
So I didn't know, Dude.
00:28:18
I mean, we've been friends for, like, five years playing this game.
00:28:21
I use this term.
00:28:22
I didn't know I've heard it.
00:28:23
I thought it just meant short for Japanese, you know? And it makes sense, You know, sometimes you don't want to say, uh, America, the United States of America.
00:28:35
You just say America or USA or USA or something.
00:28:40
That's what I thought, you know, That was term meant for the Japanese.
00:28:44
So here's something else I want to bring up.
00:28:47
I think another big situation.
00:28:49
I don't think that there's a lot of people who who term racism when I think they actually mean culturally biased.
00:28:57
Yes.
00:28:58
Okay, I think there's a major difference that people need to acknowledge this.
00:29:03
Okay, just because you see ah, black guy walking down the street with its pants dragged down and, uh, got the blue bandanna on and, you know, kind of sucking out right? That is, that's culturally biased.
00:29:25
And that's in my that's that's kind of stereotyping.
00:29:31
And that is different than racism, right? That's like, um, going from your black thugs, your your white trailer trash, right? That's that's cultural.
00:29:44
That's cultural biased, and you need to separate people.
00:29:47
People in general need to separate between that because that is an inherent thing in your body that's telling you this person looks dangerous to me.
00:29:58
Walk away, you know, as opposed to, um, is he seeing ah well dressed black woman walking down the street.
00:30:09
And if I see a well dressed black woman walking down street on one side of the street, and I see some white dude in a tank top and beaten up pants with holes in it and you know scraggly and shaved head and all that I would walk to decide with well dressed black woman in a heartbeat, you know, just because it's it's, you know, deep inside your culturally biased.
00:30:33
And you had this thing.
00:30:34
Well, it seems safer over here, right? Yeah, and you know it.
00:30:38
And then that's when you start talking about appropriation.
00:30:40
You start talking.
00:30:41
It's right called on that subconscious bias or than some conscious racism.
00:30:46
You know, in those undertones that we don't even recognize that we have in us.
00:30:49
And it's not necessarily, I always say to like, there's a couple different kinds of racism.
00:30:54
There's like ignorant racism and then ignorant, ignorant racism like hateful racism and ignorant racism.
00:31:00
There's people who do racist things.
00:31:02
I don't even realize they're doing anything wrong.
00:31:04
You what I mean and you have to explain them to people.
00:31:08
Um, you know, my mother calls everybody ******.
00:31:11
Whether you're white, black, you and I mean brown, you're just, you know, and I've had to explain to her why if she says that to somebody of color, it's offensive.
00:31:21
But she's like, I call you ****** and I'm like, I know when I try to get you to stop because if you say that to somebody have caught to somebody of color, it's a very offensive term to them.
00:31:31
And then I had to show her that people use it as a hateful, racist way.
00:31:36
So my mother wasn't had, didn't have this undertone of hate.
00:31:39
She just Everybody's a ******.
00:31:40
You really mean like she and she's like Okay, so it's like, you know, but every once a while, because it's so ingrained in her, she'll say to somebody when she's upset, you know, your ****** over Mom, stop, you know, And again it could be it should never.
00:31:55
It's never towards any sort of race group.
00:31:57
It's just that's what people are, and it's and there's a difference.
00:32:00
So I would say my mother is an ignorant racist, not a hateful racist.
00:32:04
You what I mean, because there's ignorance to the undertones that uses but no, exactly right.
00:32:09
It's look, I've always said it.
00:32:10
I'll give you a better example, though, because I think you said it great.
00:32:13
But if I was walking down the street or I'm going use museum.
00:32:16
But if the white guys walking down the street say, with ripped up jeans, a tank top in the blue bandanna on and the black guys addressed the exact same way across the street, a majority of white people would look at the white guy and say, What's wrong with this poor guy and a majority way people look at the black guy and say, Look at this thug, right? And that again, they don't do it in a racist weight.
00:32:38
But it's an undertone of racism, right? It's if you said to turn down this free you were, But I think it gave people the option.
00:32:48
What side is gonna walk on? I think a lot of white people would walk on the way because this is just a crazy maybe a crackhead over here, right? But then again, you know, I have this funny feeling that, you know, if you ask the same question to a black guy, the black guy would walk to the black guy side.
00:33:02
Oh, yeah, because that's a crazy white cracker over there.
00:33:04
Yes, so it's and that's again.
00:33:07
And that's the underlying subconscious racism in that guy night.
00:33:10
Not that black guy, a white guy, whoever would maybe who's choosing to go to the same side? They're not sitting there saying I don't like him because he's white.
00:33:18
I'm more comfortable with my kind.
00:33:22
But at the same time, I think we're at a point where we should just be comfortable.
00:33:26
Whatever you and I mean.
00:33:27
Like you say, You see two guys walking like that, you're like the hell with this, all right? Right, like I'm not walking anywhere.
00:33:33
I'm going, I'm going, right? Exactly.
00:33:36
And I think, you know, normal people would want to do that.
00:33:38
I don't care what color you are when you're staggering down the road.
00:33:41
I don't want to deal with you, right? No, it's you know, it's It's a thing, and I think that at times, if I'm gonna be honest, it's I always say, Even though I'm like a ago, I don't collectible warrior.
00:33:54
It's such a bad, stupid term because I'm not like being brave at all but I fight for it.
00:34:00
I mean, I'm an activist for it, or whatever you want.
00:34:03
Advocates will call myself an advocate, Francie.
00:34:05
Racism.
00:34:06
I don't do enough to be an activist, Um, but at the same time, it's like every time I think I understand what I'm talking about.
00:34:15
My nephew tells me a story of something that happened to him, and it just rips my heart apart.
00:34:21
You what? I mean and you kind of go, It's not going away, you know what I mean? Like, it's it's not going away.
00:34:29
And I think that's where the sadness comes.
00:34:32
But I think that, you know, I think shows like ours where we can have an open discussion about it, agree and disagree on things.
00:34:40
Um, be comfortable enough to talk about subconscious racism and blatant racism and hate non hate this and that.
00:34:46
I mean, those are all the little steps, right? Maybe somebody is listening to us today, and they're going to start thinking about the terms they use.
00:34:52
You want me to go? Holy those air racist.
00:34:54
You know what I mean? Cause that's possible.
00:34:57
I I agree with you.
00:34:58
Um what I never realized until my brother in law pointed out to me was how racist Bugs Bunny is, you know, like like it.
00:35:07
But it blew my mind.
00:35:09
And, you know, I mean, he's showing me all the stuff I'm going.
00:35:11
Oh, my God.
00:35:14
Like it's It's It's not even just like the way they dress and talk like they actually say racist things.
00:35:21
No, you got Remember Bugs Bunny was back in the forties and fifties, You know where it initiated so that it was It was still that that whole culture back then.
00:35:32
So and it was Southern, and it was built, you know, not Disney, but still, it kind of had that Southern Phil.
00:35:42
That's where you got a lot of the characters.
00:35:45
Yeah, totally blew my mind.
00:35:47
But as a kid, you don't need notice any of that stuff, you know? You don't notice it. It's just funny.
00:35:51
Yeah, it's just funny until till here and had a look, and someone shows you videos.
00:35:55
Look, and you're like, Oh, my God.
00:35:57
I watched that, Lawrence, I think we did a good 36 minutes without offending anybody with actually having a good conversation.
00:36:07
I don't I hope I hope we get? I hope neither.
00:36:10
I almost want to quit when we're ahead.
00:36:11
I don't know about you a little bit.
00:36:14
I want to say that when it comes to the Washington football team, better late than never.
00:36:22
Okay, at least at least it's been acknowledged.
00:36:26
I understand it took us smack at your wallet in order to get it done, but at least you got it done, and we look forward to see what your next mascot will be.
00:36:37
Hopefully, it'll be something a little bit, uh, Mawr accepted and not a red potato.
00:36:45
Yeah, no, that's what I learned today.
00:36:47
I got a question for you.
00:36:49
Do you think they'll do a free Jersey Exchange? Because I remember when Aaron Hernandez got arrested, Robert crafted a free Jersey exchange.
00:37:01
Anybody with a Hernandez jersey could bring it to the pro shop in exchange their jersey.
00:37:05
That's one player I know. I'm just asking.
00:37:09
Do you think they'll do it? I'm just wondering.
00:37:10
I really current players.
00:37:13
Maybe.
00:37:14
I doubt they'll do pass players, but, like maybe Wayne Haskins, ask Young.
00:37:19
Yeah, they might do it with current players, but if you try to pull that off with old players they'll go bankrupt overnight.
00:37:26
You know, I don't think that they would do that.
00:37:29
And you can't.
00:37:31
I don't.
00:37:32
I think it would be very unfair to force them to do that, because then all you're doing is hurting the sport, you know, by by removing a football team and making them go bankrupt.
00:37:43
Speaking of old players, if I could change the subject quickly before we say goodbye.
00:37:47
Sure.
00:37:48
I found an article called The Five Best Players Who played for Washington that you forgot about.
00:37:56
And I'll tell you the truth, I remembered to of the five.
00:38:01
I forgot all these guys.
00:38:02
So I'm going to name them to you, and I want it.
00:38:05
I want you to tell me if you remember them or not, OK? Darryl Greene.
00:38:08
John Riggins.
00:38:09
Oh, no.
00:38:10
So the 1st 1 that I didn't remember was Deacon Jones? Yep.
00:38:14
My know Deacon Jones.
00:38:15
You remember he played for Washington defensive defensive lineman? Yeah, but did you remember him playing for Washington? Yes, because I remember him was a ram.
00:38:24
Yeah, I remember.
00:38:25
Missed in Washington as well.
00:38:27
Okay.
00:38:28
Do you remember Shaun Alexander playing for Washington? Mm, No.
00:38:34
Uh, no, I did not either.
00:38:37
I didn't even know he played anywhere after Seattle.
00:38:40
I'm gonna be on its with you.
00:38:41
I thought he just died out of the league after Seattle, but he finished in Washington.
00:38:45
Yeah, I didn't know that.
00:38:47
All right, This one.
00:38:48
I remember Donovan McNabb.
00:38:50
Yes, great.
00:38:53
Jason Taylor.
00:38:55
I do not remember playing for Washington Hall of Famer Jason Taylor.
00:39:01
I No, I don't.
00:39:04
I mean, obviously Miami, but that's it.
00:39:08
Yeah.
00:39:09
He had 3.
00:39:10
5 sacks in 13 games for Washington.
00:39:14
Okay.
00:39:15
And then the 3rd 1 I'm gonna be honest with you Forget.
00:39:19
Remember, I didn't even know.
00:39:23
And this is probably sure in my age, you're probably to go. Oh, yeah.
00:39:26
Dion Sanders, planning school. Dallas.
00:39:39
I don't remember him playing for Washington right after Dallas.
00:39:42
After that, Sanders spent five seasons of Dallas Cowboys.
00:39:45
That's when Washington came in.
00:39:47
Yeah, I had no idea that.
00:39:51
Did he do a darn thing for Washington? I'm gonna look it up, E on standards, because I was just looking at this right before we came on, and I was like, I do not I did not know that Dion Sanders played for Washington.
00:40:03
May neither remember Atlanta nine years.
00:40:08
Well, you know what? Good enough.
00:40:10
He played 16 games.
00:40:13
Four interceptions, uh, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries.
00:40:24
I mean, was that his last season? Was this final Well, that no cause.
00:40:28
Then after that, then he retired from 20.
00:40:31
Yet then he retired in 2001 to 2003.
00:40:34
And then who did he finish his career with in 2004? In 2005? Who? The Baltimore Ravens.
00:40:44
I didn't know that either.
00:40:48
Owner Joe Me that I don't know.
00:40:50
Hopefully is not watching me.
00:40:51
Doesn't watches that we can quit.
00:40:52
I'll quiz him tomorrow.
00:40:55
You might not be, will be on, but I will quiz him two more about it.
00:40:58
But yeah, he played for washing for a season.
00:40:59
It made four interceptions.
00:41:00
It's not a bad year.
00:41:01
No, no, that's not bad.
00:41:04
He had 41 tackles, like 41 tackles.
00:41:09
38 of them were solo.
00:41:11
Well, it's probably still really quick at that age.
00:41:14
Yeah, but I have no memory.
00:41:16
No memory of Dion Sanders played for Baltimore or I thought he finished after Dallas.
00:41:21
I'm gonna be honest with you.
00:41:22
I thought his career after Dallas.
00:41:24
I used to actually get it confused because I used to think he was with San Francisco after Dallas.
00:41:31
But he was a San Francisco before.
00:41:33
Knows it was Atlanta.
00:41:34
San Francisco, Dallas.
00:41:36
Did he win a Super Bowl of San Francisco? I think so.
00:41:42
That was not Not sure.
00:41:44
No, that was not before that wasn't a Steve Young era looking here.
00:41:49
1994 teams stats.
00:41:53
Sam School won their division playoff results.
00:41:56
Yeah, San Francisco won the Super Bowl.
00:41:58
Okay.
00:41:59
I thought I thought they did what they did.
00:42:01
Beat the charges.
00:42:02
49 to 26 back in the day when Super Bowls or just blowouts.
00:42:08
All right, All right.
00:42:11
Well, that's my list.
00:42:12
I just I I'm happy because you looked as shocked as I did.
00:42:15
So Yeah, and the Dion Sanders and Sean Alex.
00:42:18
Anger threw me for a loop, man.
00:42:20
Jason Taylor as well.
00:42:21
I don't number three of those guys.
00:42:22
Played for what? I don't remember Jason Taylor playing for my Remember? I thought he was a one team guy, you know, and I All right, well, thank you for that extra knowledge.
00:42:35
Completely, utterly useless knowledge.
00:42:37
And hopefully it will be on jeopardy one day, one day having a beer and a friend.
00:42:42
And you're going to go.
00:42:43
He's going to say, Ah, nobody good ever played for Washington.
00:42:46
You're going to say Well, for for 13 minutes prime time.
00:42:53
Dion Sanders.
00:42:57
Yeah, I did.
00:42:58
I do remember Deacon Jones, So I remember him playing full.
00:43:01
I thought he played for the Rams his whole career.
00:43:02
Right now. The Rams and the Chargers.
00:43:04
Right now he played, He played Washington.
00:43:08
Ah, well, Lawrence week, we went into this thinking we do 20 minutes. We did 45.
00:43:13
I think we did pretty good today.
00:43:14
I think we did excellent, considering I'm looking at the live in a minute ago, it said 60 people watching.
00:43:20
And after that, if we discount you being in here, we got ****ed for calves and ST Benjamin and Boston Bell, and that's all I see.
00:43:31
Dude, that's it.
00:43:33
That's it.
00:43:34
So what I don't get is Lawrence.
00:43:38
Why in the hell do these people not have a SportsCastr profile? I mean, a question.
00:43:47
Listen, guys, if you're look 60 people watching this right now, 60 people watching this right now and Lawrence, I'm checked 49 story, and I'm checking out and I'm checking it dropped? Yeah, I just checked Who from the names on the bottom who was actually on.
00:44:04
And it's you and I.
00:44:05
So 47 people are watching this as a guest click.
00:44:11
Create a profile.
00:44:12
It's right up in the right hand corner.
00:44:14
If it takes you more than 30 seconds, Lawrence will send you a dollar.
00:44:20
That's so kind of, you know, no.
00:44:22
Uh, I Now look, it's not gonna take you If you're the slowest type er in the world, it's going to take you a minute and 1/2 to get it done.
00:44:34
If you're quick 30 40 seconds.
00:44:37
Foam foam, Boom.
00:44:39
If you want them one finger type like Lawrence, Yeah, might take you a little bit longer If you're young, like me, and you just type away.
00:44:45
And if you're young like Joe, your you could do this with your phone really quickly.
00:44:49
Get like that.
00:44:50
Sign up for a profile, put a little picture in, Come in, join the chat.
00:44:54
Talk to us.
00:44:55
Hey, you know what, man? I even said hello to **** for calves, and Richard followed you, but never said nothing back to me.
00:45:02
Join the conversation.
00:45:03
Tell us why we're wrong.
00:45:05
Hey, you want to really embarrass us to your own stream? You Can you click life hell, invite us on and tell us why you're why Why were wrong? I'm sure one of us can find the time to go on and say hello and tell you why you're wrong.
00:45:18
Sign up for a profile.
00:45:20
Make sure you like this this stream to hit the little heart.
00:45:22
But in there it's just like Instagram.
00:45:24
Really simple.
00:45:25
Press a little heart.
00:45:26
And then once you have the profile, just give all tolerance.
00:45:31
Come over to my channel rail route.
00:45:33
You could see it on the bottom There.
00:45:34
Follow me there.
00:45:35
And our boy Joe New Ball, who's apparently out of town doing work.
00:45:39
I think he's golfing, but he's out of town doing work.
00:45:42
Follow him as well and we're on well, most of us air on Monday to Friday.
00:45:49
Lawrence never goes anywhere.
00:45:51
Lawrence has a raw deal and does not know how to negotiate a contract seven days a week.
00:45:57
You will find Lawrence on this on this channel, except probably tomorrow except tomorrow.
00:46:02
It'll just be me and Joe and Joel.
00:46:04
Probably Bales will probably just me.
00:46:06
I'm upgrading my hardware and software.
00:46:08
Guys, I'm sorry.
00:46:09
I'm just increasing my stuff so that I can be better at bringing content for you.
00:46:15
I will tell you one thing.
00:46:16
No, Lawrence, I've learned something ever since we started doing SportsCastr news.
00:46:21
But in April, about April, just this cove, it was coming in.
00:46:25
I remember that, Um I can't do anything on my own anymore.
00:46:30
I just I need partners now because I flounder by myself.
00:46:35
I used to be able to do an hour on my own.
00:46:38
No problem.
00:46:39
Now I sit there, and I think I did this whole good long thing.
00:46:42
I look at the time and I got four minutes. Right.
00:46:45
I've seen that happen with me as well.
00:46:47
Man, I thought I got you. I got you. I understand.
00:46:49
It's the only reason my stream earlier went 45 minute solo.
00:46:55
It was because I was talking about my own favorite team.
00:47:02
And when you're talking about your favorite team, you could talk about him until the cows come home.
00:47:08
Right? But when you're talking about a different team, there's only so much you could say until someone speaks up and then you got somethingto converse with? Yeah, it's it's phenomenal.
00:47:20
And you guys have ruined it for me.
00:47:23
As soon as you kick me out of this little posse or you guys leave, I'm done.
00:47:26
I'm gonna retire because I will not be able to pick up but myself ever again.
00:47:31
Uh huh. You don't say goodbye.
00:47:34
I'm just gonna keep talking, you know that.
00:47:35
All right, Well, hey, don't forget hit the like.
00:47:39
Give me a follow. Give. Ray.
00:47:41
Apollo, go find Joe.
00:47:43
New beau if you've got time.
00:47:45
If you don't, he's not here.
00:47:46
So hello, Uh, until next time, I'm Lord's own rare out SportsCastr News.
00:47:53
Have a good one.
