I think we live here.
How you doing, everybody? Phil, Stifle. Hear all about the birds.
Co host Bearden out on Twitter.
I follow all the birds at 80.
Start in a few minutes late.
Was just going at it with somebody on Twitter.
Uh, totally off topic.
Randomly going on about how brain Ingram is a way better player.
Uh, then Ben Simmons and I'm just up sidetracked big time because of that, Maybe I could talk about that in a little bit.
Um, here to talk mostly because I've been going at it all day with people about how bad the NFL on nbr NFL immediately baseball are doing compared to Ah Thea, you know, best ball hockey with their bubbles.
And it's a hotly debated topic.
You know, baseball, football have decided to go bubble lis travel, and we obviously see what's going on.
Obviously, with the Phillies and Marlins firmas a Phillies fan, it's not a good look right now for baseball the way it's working in the NFL today.
The Buffalo Bills sent all of their, uh, rookies home again.
Not a good look because there's an outbreak.
I think there's five rookies have tested positive.
It's just not good right now.
Hopefully, anybody the checks in get starting to build a few little followers up here.
If you can hear me, let me know.
Working with a new microphone here works well for the podcast.
I'm not sure how it works with SportsCastr here if it's going well or not, But yeah, they're family.
Um, the N B A and the NHL.
They have their bubbles.
They've got thousands of tests in the last couple weeks, not one person has tested positive for the Corona virus.
Hate talking about the Corona virus.
But the way it is right now with sports, we kind of have to talk about it.
And, ah, you know, they're doing such a great job.
Tonight we got the Jazz and the pelicans opening of the round of eight seeding games.
Right now, um, the pelicans look like they're out to a pretty, ah, big lead to start this first half, but and it's great.
It's working the bubble.
I know some people will say that they have less teams, um, smaller teams, smaller amount of personnel, but they're making it work.
I read an article earlier this week that Ah, Roberts, What's your name? The NBA Players Association.
Ah, uh, had executive director.
Thanks for joining the broadcast.
Um is already working on next year's bubble for all 30 teams if they need it for the start of the season, while the NFL and Major League Baseball still have nothing, Um, this week, you know.
Last weekend, the Phillies and the Marlins had their ah opening weekend, Siri's and 17 Marlins of test deposit between the players and the coaches in the clubhouse and all its not good look, the Phillies haven't played since Sunday.
Their weekend schedule, their weekend.
Ah, Siri's has already canceled.
It's it's not a good look.
I'm just gonna say that over and over again.
Not a good look.
Now whenever the Phillies start playing again, whether it's Monday or Tuesday next week, they haven't been practicing.
They're gonna be off their game.
They there in the B, uh, stadium.
You know, yesterday I believe it was, and then one of the coaches tested positive Today.
Now month bunch of those players are back at risk again, so well, they play or not.
Who knows? I know that's why they have the taxi squad for the positive cases and the players that need to sit out for a couple weeks.
But it's obviously showing that one team is having the Marlins, and testing positive is having such an effect on the rest of league.
Now you have the Phillies and the Marlins going how many games that they're missing.
It's only a 60 game season.
There's only 66 days at that.
60 games are being played in.
Now the Phillies have seven games to make up at least Marlins potentially even Mawr.
Um, there's only six days off the rest of the season for the Phillies.
So where they gonna make them up? Now? There's that talk of ah Sol report earlier.
Didn't tonight that they're going to start making doubleheaders seven inning games? This approach, this isn't colleges, and literally we don't need no seven inning games.
That's that's a joke.
And ah, this is all these things Eircom pounding, and it's really looking for really bad for Roger Manfred right now.
It's a **** shame.
Um, I don't like those fire hashtag this hashtag fire.
Certain people are coaches or whatever, but I know that's going around on Twitter right now.
Fire! Fire! Ah, Manfred.
And he's not doing a good job.
It's gonna sing. Things gonna happen.
There is going to be a team that's gonna have, Ah, a rash of an outbreak because they're not taking it seriously.
And I'm a backtrack to the podcast, all about the birds.
I've said this on multiple podcasts.
It's up to the players to take the initiative.
If you're not gonna be in a bubble to, you know, stay safe toe self isolate to not go out and party, not go to the strip clubs in Atlanta, which is what the Marlins are doing and Lou Williams is doing.
I'm not sure what's going on the strip clubs in Atlanta, but for some reason, everybody seems to be going home and everybody keeps coming back with Covitz.
I'm not sure stay out of the strip clubs in Atlanta, but, um, you know, you can have a bubble with these leaks, and I don't want to hear anybody say that you cannot have a bubble in ah, the National Football League or Major League Baseball.
But if you're not gonna have that bubble.
It's up to the players to take the initiative, go to the stadium practice, go to the games.
Don't be going out.
Don't be socializing.
If your family is socializing with other people, you just have to take that, you know, initiative and stay away.
I know it's a sacrifice, but if you want these leaks to succeed, if you want to make the money we've talked about on the podcast a bunch and I try to stay away from things we've talked about on the podcast so that you listen to the podcast all about The birds drops every Tuesday and Friday morning on all outlets.
Spotify, Apple pockets.
Some of that I'll say that 100 times.
Um, it's up to them.
They have to stay away.
They have to want to do it.
And we've talked about the NFL.
I mean, you're not getting their If they opt out, they're not getting their salary guaranteed.
There's a lot of different things and intricacies.
We've broken that down on the podcast and will continue to, especially with large number of NFL players that are opting out compared to the Major League Baseball but it comes down to the initiative that the players take.
They have toe want, and they have to do their best effort, not going out at night.
If your family wants quick feet.
Sorry, you just probably shouldn't.
If your family's at a big party or barbecue, you probably shouldn't go with them.
Um, but a bubble NFL bubble.
Major league baseball bubble.
It could happen.
I started talking about it.
Ah, Monday on the podcast.
When we recorded it, talked about it with a bunch of other people.
I was on the YouTube show.
Scotty, talk sports on the episode hasn't dropped yet about the NFL bubble and have compounded on it.
And I'm gonna keep continue.
As the more I talked about, it's gonna get bigger and bigger this bubble.
The NFL could do a bubble and what they could do, they could break the lead up into four regional divisions.
You could do the Eagles, you know.
That's my team. So I'm gonna talk about the Eagles.
Could be the east coast of North east.
Whatever you wanna call it, it would consist of the Eagles.
It would have the Jets and the Giants, the Buffalo Bills, the Patriots, Ravens or Redskins and I'm gonna go Panthers, and that's gonna region.
That's eight teams.
You could play each team twice, 14 games and go from there.
It's not that hard.
Um, if you want to play two teams 1/3 time to get it to 16 games, sure, Or you just know, add.
You know, since you only have 14 regular season games, you have some playing games.
You create some kind of a playoff bubble once we get there and you expand on that to make up the lost revenue from there.
But you can have a bubble.
You could put the bubble somewhere in between two cities that are relatively close, like in the East that you could put.
Put the teams in the Philadelphia Baltimore area where that's an hour.
You're somewhere in between. I live in Chester County.
It's an hour to the Philadelphia statements.
It's an hour to the Baltimore stadiums.
You put the teams up there on, but it's not that big deal.
You go in between Baltimore and Washington for the Washington football team.
I said the Redskins earlier, I shouldn't have.
That's not a team anymore, so you could do that.
Um, and you, the teams could stay in their hotels and do just what Baseball or best one hockey you're doing have their bubble.
Um, you would have to find some extra fields for practice.
But for game these, you still have your Thursday night game still simply on Saturdays and Sundays.
I don't think college football is really gonna, you know, go through with their season, or at least not much of a season.
You could still have games on Saturday and Sunday.
You can have your Monday night game.
You could spread out the games enough where there's plenty of opportunity to air the games on TV.
Get your television money.
Plenty of time to get the games in and redo the fields and fix the fields and all.
But it's gonna come down to the teeth.
The NFL wanting to do that in baseball, you could do the same thing we have already read.
Done the divisions in baseball this year, so there's less travel.
Um, you could do that.
You can just put them in a bubble somewhere.
There's plenty of areas.
You they talked about the Arizona bubble, uh, back at the beginning of the Corona virus, it would have been a better option.
You could have done an Arizona bubble, the Texas bubble, anything.
Any bubble in Florida's not probably a good idea, unless it's a really tight bubble like in basketball.
But you could make this work.
Um, but it's the leaks not wanting to.
It's the players not wanting to the players, not want tohave that sacrifice of leaving their families.
And I understand that.
But I caught the tail end of ah, interview with Sal Paolantonio from the NFL reporter on the mic missing Ellie show.
For those of you not in Philadelphia, he's one of the major afternoon drive time radio guys, which tend not toe.
So listen to his show very often, but I picked it up like right at the end of his show, just a the end of the interview, and I think, and I'm not quoting him illness.
But I think Sale Power was talking about comparing the military.
I don't wanna hear these millionaire athletes complaining about being away from their families for a couple months when military families have to be away from their loved ones for 10 12 months at a time while they're deployed overseas or wherever they are, and they're not making that kind of money.
So it's really up to the players.
It's upto leaks to set these mandates, and it's a shame I should be on here talking about the Phillies.
They're opening weekend against the Marlins.
How bad Vince Velasquez looked, er, things like that or the Sixers and the and the Ben Simmons of the four, which I will talk about those things shortly.
But instead, we're talking about bubbles in these seasons, and I don't want to hear that is too late for football.
It might be too late for baseball, but it's not too late for football if they start the season and continue on the path they're going.
At some point September October, there's gonna be an outbreak between 234 teams, and she just shut things down.
And it's not like in baseball, where you can have doubleheaders to make up this these Miss games.
You missed a game in football, it's it.
So one team has it.
The other teams are gonna keep playing.
They're going to shut down at that moment, so that's gonna be a big problem.
And so they just need toe reevaluate.
Right now, training camps are going on there in a sort of a bubble.
Um, they're not even practicing yet told.
I think it's August 16th that they'll do their first practice.
They should be working on plan.
Roger Goodell, call me.
Hit me up on Twitter Bearded knowledge.
I'll give you the details that I have in this head of how we can make this work, But obviously they're not gonna do that yet.
They're gonna wait till there's a big outbreak at a mingling, Uh, what do we do? Just like baseball is doing right now, And that's why I mean football season is gonna happen.
They're gonna probably start on time without a bubble, but I don't think they will finish it on time.
There's gonna be a stoppage at some point.
They're lucky with where the way their season goes that there's enough of an off season will be able.
It might go in the late February early March, completing the season, but they need to reevaluate right now.
They need to be sitting in a war room right now figuring this out, and unfortunately, they're not doing it right now.
On the other hand, I think it's a little too late to change what they're doing.
But there's a tweet from Anthony Rizzo earlier today him saying, You know, let's just sit in a locker room for eight hours.
Well, I don't know the specifics behind it, but yeah, I mean, that's how it spreads inside and closer, closer quarters.
You got 30 guys, plus all the coaches and attendance and everything in that locker room sit in the locker room, not wearing masks.
I mean, that's the way it is.
That's it's going to spread.
You're gonna have locker room outbreaks.
It's not a good look, and it's not gonna not gonna go Well, I mean, if you want to touch on the Phillies, I mean, obviously they played terribly last weekend.
It's already been last week, and it's so far behind that I talked about it so many times.
I don't want to, but obviously Vince Velasquez is not a starter on a major league team.
We've seen this now for three straight years, plus of him just being mediocre at best.
It's time to move on from that experiment.
Luckily, with all these games were missing.
Spencer Howard Service Time's gonna be up, and he will be on this team very shortly.
Um, and he will probably take a blast, catches spot in rotation, but we don't even know they missed so much time.
I'm just gonna go right back to Arun Ola and the top of the rotation again.
So it's gonna be, you know, middle of next week before we even know who's starting the third game back from this little stoppage here.
And that's if there's not an outbreak in the locker room.
If a couple tests come back because there is an incubation period with this, how long it normally takes on average.
But there's also the longer end of the equation.
How could you know you can finally test positive? You know, it could be Thursday or Friday, Saturday, Sunday year, then all of a sudden 567 Phillies office on that.
Kobe, You know, it's that's not good.
They shall be isolated from each other right now, so it's not spreading.
Who knows if they are not? But baseball doesn't have a system in place to make this work, or at least not a system that 100 whatever page booklet they gave out is obviously not putting enough information out there on what they're supposed to do. And it's a shame.
So Velasquez pitched terribly.
You know, there's nothing much more that I can say about that.
Um, it is what it is with the, you know, the Phillies rotational.
I just don't know what we're even going to see.
The Phillies play again to be able to talk about what they should do as a baseball team versus just staying healthy.
So again we could do the football bubble.
The baseball bubble could have been done if they wanted to.
Um, it's just not happening.
But football they still have that chance to make it work.
It's frustrating because, you know, I talk a lot sports.
We got a great football podcast all about the birds.
See, you know, right there on the ah, on the line there, 80 birds.
You can follow us on Twitter, Facebook.
We have a great show.
Don were recorded an episode 28 later tonight.
It's been a long journey, but I need football to talk about, you know, And if they don't have a bubble that there's not strict, strict protocols in place.
You know it's bad.
And what it's gonna come down to is a major name of Patrick Mahomes of Carson Weds a Russell Wilson and Aaron Donald, one of those names opting out before the NFL's like that light bulb goes off and something needs to be done.
Um, but until then, you know what happened.
I don't see those major names doing it for for many reasons.
But you know, what do they get? $500,000.
If there's a serious reason why you're often Oh, you're gonna really pass upon 25 $30 million or whatever it is for, said player to make 3 50 grand sitting home.
Most players are gonna pass that up, so that's why they're not doing it.
So, Bubble, you got the idea right here, regional bubbles, or if you don't want to do regional bubbles.
The other thing I had started with the idea just touch on it, so I was ready to move on here.
I try to keep these videos under 20 minutes.
I got like, five more things to talk about here, and I haven't stopped talking about the bubble yet.
You could do a team bubble.
Um, each team, for those of you, not in Phil Adelphia there watching this.
They used to be a hotel right by the stadium.
It was a holiday in stock there.
The remodeling to a casino hotel in all.
Your team stays in that hotel.
You do your regions for your games and the only travel the day off for the games within a certain hour.
Drive to our drive.
The rest of the go the night before they have an advanced scout or secretary going to the hotel that they're staying at to make sure that it's set up properly.
It's a proper bubble at that hotel.
They go to a hotel, eat in the hotel that travel to the game, and they come right home.
Keep that team bubble guns, my throat's parts.
I was coughing up a storm right before this. Not because I'm sick.
I just losing my voice today, which is great right before a podcast.
I'm doing this to on top of it, um, so you could have a team bubble? Um, they're not doing that either.
It's a little less strict.
And there's probably more likelihood of them.
No leaving that bubble.
But you gotta have something away.
NFL, Major League Baseball on leeway.
It's gonna work.
We want Tobe able to watch it. We want to talk about it.
The players want to play.
It's up to the league's.
It's up to the teams, the management of the teams to set the proper protocols to make this work.
It looks like it's working based our best goal in hockey.
It looks like it's working.
All the sports ever seized the Korean baseball League.
No positive cases.
All the European soccer leagues air going off without a hitch.
Right now it's up to baseball.
Um, yeah, thanks for the foam finger there.
Uh, David, thank you.
So I went on to other things.
Obviously, you know, it's put my trusting notebook here.
There's a lot of a lot of players are opting out in football baseball.
I touched on it already.
The seven inning doubleheaders.
Um, this is not Ah, this is not a little leak.
So I did want to touch on the Flyers and Sixers suppliers.
That's really good in their first scrimmage game.
I didn't want to touch too much on them because it's only the first scrimmage game, but any time to beat the Penguins.
It's a great day, love.
When the Flyers beat the Penguins, the team looked good.
They looked fresh.
It looked healthy.
It's great to see Oscar limb room back.
Um, for those that don't know, he was like a breakout young player for the Sick Flyer sit.
This year, he had about 11 goals, eight assists in 30 games to start the season.
Diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma or rare form of cancer, he kicked cancer's ass.
Be back, he skating with the team.
He didn't play, but he is on the 31 man bubble.
It's just great Great to see him a doing well and back with the team and healthy enough to play.
It's great, and that goes to show back to the bubble.
We're going back to the bubble.
How a bubble could make a player that just recovering or just finished ignited insane, recover, just finished.
Cancer treatments feel safe enough because of the bubble to be in there.
It's great, Um, the basketball.
Sixers didn't play tonight on opening night, but will be playing this weekend there.
Eight seeding games.
They were one and two in their scrimmage games.
They did not look bad, though, when the starters were out there, um, Ben Simmons moving to the power forward spot.
That is the big new deal that's going on.
He looked good, took some three point shots, which was great.
He had no problems playing the spot.
He still nearly had a triple double in one of the games, playing the four spot shake.
Milton look natural, running the point guard position like we thought he would, but they were just scrimmage games.
They were very late rotations. John.
We've only played one of them for like 10 minutes, had calf soreness, but I think he'll be fine to go for the seeding games or private ramp up his minutes as those go.
I was talking to some people earlier this week that I don't even really care.
Everyone's like, What's your team going to go six and to form for whatever in the seating gives, it doesn't matter.
There is no home court advantage in either bubble cause we're on neutral courts.
It doesn't even matter.
Uh, what's your record is if you're in the 64 seats, the only reason it matters to a little bit if you don't like the matchup 60 to be playing the Celtics in the first round, most likely if they don't go up or down.
But if they go, if they go up to the five or four seed, we win their first round.
Then they got the Bucks in the second round.
So it really doesn't matter.
Um, you just want to see them come out of it healthy.
You want to see him come out that playing well.
Tobias Harris played great third game.
She's Teibel played really well, Um, so we just need to.
These eight seating games are more of extra scrimmage game so that they continue to Ah, you get their rhythm back.
Simmons gets more comfortable in that four without the fans there, he seems to be shooting the three ah, couple times, Not a lot.
A couple, but they were no hesitation shots, which is great.
So it's all great stuff.
Looking forward for that.
Um, so that's about it.
Um, I gotta do all my promotions here before we go.
Don't get off the screen if you're watching finishes through.
So you got all about the birds.
80 birds on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
Um, I'm one of the co host at Bearded Knowledge Feel.
Stifle my co host, Johnny.
You elected Johnny U 932 to Jeff Warner at Jeff Warner NFL.
We do have our shirts and gear.
You can buy the gear for the podcast on two different sites were on t public dot com.
You just go to t public dot com So I sure stores last hyphen out hyphen media, some of the sights I freelance right for I do a lot of golf fantasy and I'm gonna be jumping into football fantasy if we have a football season on time and the other site a lot more great.
Eagles are all about the birds content, toe shirts, T shirts.
So these all different designs that my buddy John EU is making up.
It's a shop that spread shirt dot com slash all hyphen about life in the hyphen birds hyphen Podcast.
That's a mouthful.
But goto, if you go to our Facebook or Twitter pages were tagging the sights in all the time.
We've already sold a bunch of stuff.
It really helps us spend some money trying to build this podcast up into a huge thing.
Eso you buy a T shirt? It's great. It's helpful.
It goes a long way, but again, that's about all I've got.
That's almost 22 minutes there.
I try to keep these at the 15 minute mark, but I just kept talking about this bubble and I'd even get into as much details.
I wanted to because I just kept going on and on because the bubble, it's all about the bubble.
Basketball and hockey are making it work.
I don't know why baseball and football aren't following suit.
Football, hopefully, has seen what's happening with the Phillies and Marlins right now and other seasons being disrupted, and they start thinking really hard again.
Call me Roger, I'll talk to you.
Um, at somebody tweet me back Today is like I used to you know, I would have been able to get you Ah, you know, in contact there.
I'm like, Yeah, that That's killer saying you used to be able to get me in that contact, but yeah, I mean, he wouldn't listen to us fans anyway, because it's all about the money, and for some reason, the players just don't want that bubble.
And I understand the not one to be away from family, But sometimes you gotta make sacrifices in life.
And if you want football, if you want that money right now, if baseball, you know isn't playing in Philly right now, I'm watching fliers in six years instead, Normally, I have the Phillies game on first, but not not right now.
So there's a lot of casual eyes they're gonna be diverted to the Flyers and Sixers in Philly.
That might just stay there because these guys are making the sacrifice that that's what I got on that.
You know, Everybody have a great day.
