He's talking with Nicky we were married in kind of like their chat it up and sitting here going through life trying to start conversations I receive anyway did you stay with his profile fascinating to me. Ruthlessly efficient. I remember when match dot com became something that people were using as like a hookup site. Like that was where I was kind of I remember that and I obviously FaceBook and MySpace but this up now man. I mean you just. And that's the beauty of these the players you know a lot of times people look at athletes and they say east they think dominantly they stereotype of but these dudes man read this article it's funny for the tender stuff but. They are now. Unbelievably efficient if you're going to be hooking up on the road they're not out drinking and spending tons of money potentially being targets to get in the fights the people who want to show oh yeah I can knock out and game player I can knock out an NFL player I'll give this guy some grief. They'll have to do any of that. You can show up. Have another room set up the girls are already there do what you need to do and then yet see their plane without tender back there in the look at this silliness like right now potential hookups owes me new and that was it made as a quarterback in the league and united that played together insult money. Coach total washout like man's coach let's be honest I did you talk. I play half court shot. I have now to follow it more dads out and what it's just you look at the players now. And not only are they getting in with the need to get in on the road right because they're boys are gonna be boys they're gonna do what they wanna do. So they found a way to save two to three hours on the process to keep themselves out of trouble number one. And to get more sleep at night number two so they're able to play the next day not only that you continue to read this article. Drinking. Alcohol consumption amongst players weighed. In you and yet ask why have mr. deeds in this. Everyone in the league most guys are realizing that toxic effects booms and altitude and travel can have on the body and their under the impression looked. I can make a ton of money in a very short window here but I can't. Jeopardize it by drinking and not taking care myself so now more than. Ever before you have these dudes. Just completely avoiding boost they're doing what they need to do to make sure they get paid. Expand the brand and then they'll cash shut down the road figured out later just the ultimate respect to these guys to be completely honest with you yet because they figured out there able to have fun they're able to make their money they're taken Medicare and so does Christie said it perfect. He when he came on now as the number one job of him to. Take care his body no matter what and be able to play and I punched up his Sacramento numbers he missed five games in four years with Sacramento. Guys play 8081 games each and every season because he kept his body in shape. He stayed away from things like alcohol would shall dehydrated you. Special when you're on four games in five nights in near traveled a multiple cities your body's got to be refreshing you gotta be ready to reform. The NFL is going to debate whether or not they should change the overtime policy as well as two other very interest in changes that could be coming up. We've got our plans for overtime we wanna hear yours as well Tripoli anti 79570. That's coming up next delegates 95 points of the game. Now back to show lowered dibs on 95 point seven game. Mike Montgomery you know you love them college basketball hall of Famer former head coach of the warriors golden bears and cardinal you can look at some of the pac twelve network he's joining Jolo Indians. On 95 points in the game coach Mike every good morning how are. We're doing very well we got a lot to touch on because basketball's been making headlines. All around the world how to get your opinion on how the league and the players can come together. To potentially resolve this rest conundrum. LeBron disbursed the war is now all making headlines as they followed the data to try to maintain their players' health. For the playoff push but. Obviously we have TV money to worry about we have fans to worry about is there a way we can reach a solution here. Are you gotta talk somebody a lot smarter than me. It's it's too many games it's hard out here are you slices. You got back to act 82 games. Get an opportunity eater rest between games I think it's fair that players should play games. I think it's fair that people are a really good money to watch the premiere players. And that the players are being paid enough that they should play. What would you put him in the environment that you do with all the travel. The peace road trips with these back to back. It cute you know you all will have no choice because at the end of the day. You try to win the world championships you're not trying to win that you debt next game. So what people are really awkward spot. There have to be less games that have to be more you have to let it out to the lawyers capital opportunity to take care of their bodies. It's already such a grind out coach when you go from late October and for the warriors and the cavs last year all the way through. Mid June would players and coaches even. The against starting the season say in early October. I don't think it pretty necessary and it wouldn't term like that time because that's what it means. You know it's not addicted days not so much grind you met Ryan you have an hour you don't practice. Long. Periods of time you have acting you have time to do other things so you're doing it anyway. And if you look at the pre season they started October. And you know your lot at that originally were out at two days practice is what you really argue about at one day one practice of our tax which debuted two hours section in the afternoon on back. And shoot. And you play game after what our practices. In an exhibition game and it's not great basketball but their exit could start earlier speeches that. And can all play the game in Denver getting done your arteries now all your time flying to Memphis after the Indian beauty in real life. And the play the next night you're just. One road trip was like eight. Gains in all days I honestly. All want to know what city I was again just based on all the travel and so forth you try to watch tape and get ready so it was almost. And you're called you want your team to perform at the highest level wanted to stay healthy and you want to be stretched for what is it they're top playoff. Goats is at the mindset. If you going to this knowing that you get ready go the back to backs and TARP ceased tough road trips. Would behoove the coaches to say look you're the starters people give them what they want they want to see you they're paying big money. Whirling gonna pay you fifteen men yelling and play fifteen minutes. The back ups now have that mindset the other Meehan I had that mindset that they're gonna play the majority of the time. T think that would solve a little these problems even if they do if they gave the fans just a little bit. It probably. Will go away the chance to see those guys at the end of additive. Players want to play epic and epic one like it keeps coaches that are making decisions for what is without let it. Your body becomes fatigued and your body. Substitute there's so much greater chance that something bad can happen because it's just not quite 100% in terms of protecting itself certain that you. That that's a reasonable thing. But in the other key. Leave their best players in maybe they're not playoff bound team and they don't need. And you're losing an actual people players and coaches what. We can that are competitive. Mike Montgomery college basketball hall of Famer former head coach of the warriors golden bears and cardinal you know catch him on the back to a network we joke. Blowing bids on 95 points and the coach. A fascinating article on ESPN yesterday and I looked to get your thoughts on this. Substantially. Teams NBA teams in the eighties were winning at. At home about 67% of the time. That number is down to 57%. This season all time low so the altar of the story Tom however stroke went out talked to general managers coaches players and what he found out was. What they're calling the Tinder dictation of the National Basketball Association in essence. Players if they are looking for some female companionship on the road. They can use social media to set that up rather than going out to the clubs and bars and drinking and spending all night. And as a result they can do what they wanna do in last time I get more sleep and that perform at a higher level on the road how amazing is that. Credible. Apple were to gain a year net report. In terms of follow players. Who look out. It is is a lot here and maybe players I'm not suggesting that at. Their home phone and then there is that he owns. With all the contacts. That they need. And so that you make a phone call about the way business gets handled that a lot less stress. I can remember one. Long those cities in far with Jerry west's. We were talking about. And he mentioned the fact that a lot of young players because of access. Yeah excitement at some money lately. Socialized themselves. Out of each Wednesday they couldn't handle it is to know what to do. Very astute point. And I can remember. Quote it and you. An unnamed hotel in my. Or knock it looked out of that was the only standing outside. It's NBA. Well obviously look my body in NBA. Well yeah and you know what got the wrong number. And I can alternative there was another NBA city that the same quote sell I think it was probably. But it. So yeah. Or it would pop well are they might. Talk about art but I don't. Burn holes. We got. It. And judge I think and credible information. Mike Montgomery here on 957. Games shifting gears a little bit coach to your safe zone also mind. Let's talk a little NCA internment eat at the three pac twelve is still alive organ Arizona UCLA. Who among them as the best chance to make it to the final four and who would be your pick for national champion. Of these final sixteen welcome back to safe ground coach. Well you know I would never try to pick I would say that. I like he'll play just because their ability. To score the ball. And I think that they really have. They just are so talented and long ball is clearly the real deal. And they can Bridgeport that goes along way Arizona can really do ban you know day our. Hard nosed typical Sean Miller type deep and argenbright it will be a combination of all although they are very heavily. You know on Dylan Brooks. In tiger Dorsey but that's okay actually very qualities court ally that it in the that is very veteran. With. No pardon pardon pardon skier you know whatever. If your guy you know talks if your guy Jordan Mackie a lot of experience there breakdown. I think of those fourteen that you're talking West Coast. That one of them will clearly be in the final four and I couldn't judge which while lot depends on matchups I don't feel it got so wrote. I mean they got if you look at Lou bludgeon our way. Out what are wrote to the final foreign and national championship. But. You know he got like Kentucky because they're overall talent you've got like changed because their track record. I think it. Of the three pac twelve schools and getting that idea that what looked at pretty good chance to opened up the trophy at the end. It's it's on a month you know contends bag somewhat kind of Purdue massage and goes the air in them haven't debate. The way the big man you know on in the NBA the big man it's not a big man's game anymore did you look at produce 27 footers too big guys. No one's gonna be probably a lottery pick. You're looking inside you talk amok and zags make that's 300 pounder some big guys. Do you think we think it's coming college it's a little different than in the pros and how good is West Virginia specs with that immediate defense how they go after impress people. Well yet big guy turn it is its speed diminished it it becomes a guard play. Tournament because. It is get so physical inside it's very great typical for big people operate they are so much more equal on. You can almost take a big guy out up Purdue with two big guys. Obviously poses a problem but. You don't need big guy dominated inside Indians you don't like are you just don't haul much and they allowed to be more physical in sight there. You know this mortgage here it is really good. In hand you know he's a big physical for Purdue for example so obviously it got a chance. But. You know what does that second part of your question I got kind of first far out. Virginia and how how how. Defense eighteen get actor dead meat deepens it crashes. Good is it. Well they're they're marketed turned ankle were consistently. Although to a map he's not a great union. Pretty good with the fall. It in Iowa I can actually had. Yeah national radio. Against Kansas they added sixteen points fourteen point please keep you under three minutes to coordinate law that game and within about. Virginia which is typical ball socket is they are far. I mean they're physically tough and they do foul why there's a lot of old graphic which are being. And you know hard all blacks. And saw the article again in their talented. But maybe not quite talented offensively on the other key to cause a problem because they are style play. What. You know I don't know that did you leave it thing with the pressure that turned exactly much. Cause Montgomery final question for you regarding the warriors the news came out yesterday. The team is hopeful Kevin Durant will be back for the end the regular season. How do you what you do you go about integrating some like to rant back into the lineup at the beginning of the year they had to learn to play together. Many goes down with the injury to have to learn how to play without him once you get to the end of the season in the first round of the playoffs could be a matchup with Denver. Do you limit the minutes what's the best way to bring him back so that there are any chemistry issues. I don't think any chemistry issues because that he gets along O well to be in wet and I think they'll welcome him back skate. They put some other starting lineup together in order. Eliminated that position on the floor at age scoring position now you had arrived back in the mix and it becomes a scoring position and one more auction. I think it will be fairly smooth transition. And I also think that you should probably bring back a little bit at a time. You know something like that you'd think here you think your way out figures he'll say you well with the intensity. I'll play in the game is different than anything you can simulate. Actually got to bring him back a few minutes that are a little bit here a little bit there start of the gain game warmed. And greeted slowly but. Because of their style plays got re open. Type stuff I'll use it to matter drag getting comfortable I don't think chemistry to be a problem all right idol that she just doesn't seem to have that ball. I think everybody goes back and there are regional role and just gives one more guy. That can score the ball one more matchup nightmare for the people play to make it. I think you know organizations -- saw that saw Brett was steep current handles everything and yet same questions all current all over again and that seems to lose his cool always very patient and everybody. Only problem really don't I just think that organizations. Also workers. College basketball hall of Famer former head coach of the warriors golden bears and cardinal Egan I'll catch him in the pac twelve network. Mike Montgomery would Jolo Indians on 95 point seven game coach thank you so much for your time it's always a pleasure getting to catch up hopefully we can do it against him. I ultimately be in the community force there that are actually acquire. Golden you're absolutely golden. Now back to show lowered dibs on 95 point seven game. Front Ian Rapoport on Twitter of the NFL network. Quote sources. Saints coach Sean Payton and Johnny Mann Zell were spotted together Super Bowl week at breakfast they discussed a return to football. Let's go ahead put man's cell in New Orleans right there aren't murder mystery. I don't know. Speaking gets a hurricane element it's it's stunning because for some reason that the saints have had a losing record in three of the last four years and decisions like this. How you win chip disabled dynasties. Taking an alcoholic and drug addict and putting him on Bourbon Street. And asking them to be professional go about his job. The get a loft downtown well being lumbered in our Garden District his. Actually I'm sure there's some really nice areas real quiet I think the good fit smaller QB needed to be learned behind Drew Brees role model of his his affair Betty Ford that's if Hitler had. No joke the guy's a mess the guys amassed just because he's clip Dick kept it clean for fifteen minutes. You you think that's bad it's reason enough to put him back in the NFL guys like that man he's got to show you. It's unfortunate for football but especially to three years I mean that she's hook too much temptation. I can't believe you even consider that if you're the saints but then again it doesn't surprise me because you've had one winning record in the last four years and you've got a hall of fame quarterback. That speaks to how well run that organization currently is Joseph Mullen lives 95 point seven game. We promise this all day and now it's time to deliver. Time however stroke ESPN. Fascinating article op on the website yesterday. If you go back to the eighties. 8788 particularly. In the NBA home teams were winning 68% of their games home teams were crossing. Now this is before charter jets. This was back when players like the party a little bit cocaine was a word that came up quite a bit throughout the article. This year home teams are winning 57%. Of the games. 10% drop in fact this is the lowest rate at which home teams have won in NBA history. So however stroke did this he talked general managers coaches players. And here's what he uncovered. It's being called quote the tender his nation of the National Basketball Association. Players no longer this is according to one former all star who talked average stroke they don't have to arrive in town. Played game. Then go out to the club. Drink hang out party meet girls then go out get something to eat then go back to the hotel and before you know it's 4 AM. Indiana played in a game and all list now because the social media players can have this dialed up to the fact. To the point where they don't even have to go to clubs that you have to drink Tinder. And notably in Stu grant the article says players really prefer its program. Are showing up in these towns sometimes hurts he's already left at the desk for women. So that they can show up checked in go over to this other room. Jetted in and give back to their room get plenty of sleep and they're ready to play the next day tips yeah people. It makes perfect sense you know and everything now streamlined where you can. You can order a car from your phone you don't need to call a cab you can do everything now from your phone and have most things delivered to you so instead of having the land the figure out who's down to roll kitten. All your clothes changed going out of the club bottle service VIP cost get everyone together staying out late coming back dehydrated. And really you're just trying to. As you say did it in your trying to have some. Some female accompaniment. While you're on the road and instead he spent six or seven hours chasing set a company meant. May be getting into trouble being photographed for various web sites out of vowed. Drinking eighty more than you should whereas this it's streamline you get additional sleep. It's much better for the player and extend it. They talked about how back in the eighties cocaine was rampant the National Basketball Association and teams flew commercial so what would happen and on about Brody back to back with the warriors just faced little Casey and Alice. You would go to OKC you'd play then you would go out he would party you be drinking and doing drugs meet women. And you wouldn't be flying out until commercial flight the next day at 5:6 AM so what you're doing his saints you stay up all night. All the way till five or six go catch the plane flight down to Dallas and then get shellacked the following night. There's no need to do that anymore there's also realize the effects alcohol has on the body and they're trying to get paid so they're drinking less than ever before. So the first thing I'm thinking is I cannot wait to get in the work tomorrow clo Neil. See how to operate in the NFL and you guys were different when you travel schedule you're on the road all you like baseball guys eight road games to take me through. Singer in San Diego when you're playing at Cleveland for example when the plane Lee. Yeah you'd leave on you would leave on a on a Friday. And it's just charted plane so I think when you chart him planes it's different. Did you find commercial special when you talk among basketball on baseball because. Basketball the savior playing you know on the on the West Coast games over at 10 o'clock at night cause you play you the dubs now a year. You gotta wait to 6 o'clock in the morning the next night or take a red eye out. You don't think about taking a red eye out nine and getting into that morning at 8 o'clock now I gotta get back to the to the gym and try to be a wake up and it's kind of tough. But if you're starting your own plane you can leave right away right after the game and charter and get there and get more rest so I think that does help that plays a part. But on us and we were traveling to Cleveland art in New York Joseph we'd get there on a Friday would get their Friday afternoon press Sunday game yet for Sunday game would get their Friday afternoon about 4 o'clock. 4 o'clock in the afternoon yep up between 4 to 5 o'clock. OK and so you've got two nights in the city now I wanna start with Saturday night the night before the game. There's ample security there protecting you at the hotel making sure stuff doesn't go down there's bed checks I'd imagine what anyone ever. Sneak out on Saturday easily if you are gonna do anything in one of these towns are on one of these nights it would be Friday right did anyone do an inning Saturday no I think I think it's a very valid point on Saturdays is just it's too hard and you're thinking about a game you know you got eight road trips. It's tough because on Saturday night Joseph. You have the team meaning you get up in the morning and on you get up in the morning on Saturday you have preface from Mike's 7 o'clock to nine. Had meetings at 9:30 that morning on your individual room haven't they haven't set up at the hotel or maybe you. Have your meetings thirty minutes then the buses are there at 1030. You jump on a bus you go to the stadium. You go to the locker you get your take after you know take your street clothes they knew going to get on a pair short or sweats whatever it may be in the locker tardy set up. In eagle to walk through. Using done by 1 o'clock you get back on the bus you back to the hotel I too. Using had that window therefrom. 230. To five to thirty to six that you have free from three to whatever time you get did dress and so easy from up three to six X six dinner. 630 got a special teams meeting that coaches wanna see your eyes on Saturday everyone's gonna be there. Did at 7 o'clock you have your teen meaning that everyone's there. You goal with a first fifteen plays you're gonna run defense you go through everything to gives a speech uses around nine. You have snack table then in Serbia the food there at 9 o'clock from nine to ten. In your rooms by ten police is on the floor you have actually police officer uniform officers on the floor is where you Rhett in and you also bring your. Teen security. Any choosy to eighteen security any particular coach that has the master key in the gold do. Each room. To try to make sure pies are due on the right thing but I have a story about one guy tightens up on Saturday to get back that exacts a Saturday for the most part but. Buttons that we're all thinking game because that's not the 81 road games like baseball right. You've got to be focused okay. But Friday if you wanna get it and he'd get a net absolute net you played in an arrow where FaceBook was opened. But you didn't have Tinder write ins to grant that stuff was all still in an infant's uses a twinkle in the founders not sure sure. What you when you were in San Diego where their guys who had a way to get it in like if you were going into the city you had a two old school like some of these NBA players. What did you ever teammate who was like ahead of the curve on all this head of the curb man. Talk and hit us like. Urgency an eagle in and it was even before that that some guys in my but this particular guy just stuck like that sort dump yeah he went in it was like. Elect woody and do you wanna goalie you know we get there and and he was a good friend of mine and we dinner at times and then into Andy admit. Let's go to dinner and go hang out a little movie or golden nice dinner and on Friday and let's go to let's go to local bar let's find hot spot because we can sell to sometimes put to give us curfew and sometimes a B twelve but you may want to him before midnight. Back so so was also his column Marty got it every dorm we come I can't pass it. Or somebody in every city it would and so he. Harvey had women set up now this is back in the mid 2000 so you're going out is that it made them five Charlotte Chicago Cleveland New York what have you. And you go to this guy asking him if he wants to maybe go out to see what's going on actually. He Tarlow can't do it already had girls set up. Will you do this will or argue about these fuel. This coach it is easy wasn't a star player a whole sky was just it. It Mike. I just don't understand we'll come down dammit that's a great job I can tell tale. This kid got a little come down apologies I want to technique does not. I'm sure after after the fourth or fifth time just like OK tell me what the hell you doing in effect have these ladies in the so called no book read book. That was read book yet some of the magazine and garden magazine ads Oprah regular press. Where we're at what it what is it has anyone heard this anyone read is due to read book as red book rental blond Bob and I don't know. California it's like this replica that's how you doing this book I know every city you go you'd have people like so bottom of its it would be Arnold's pulled to tender but he would have. But he was using something on Internet this morning that written book in it and he would. People might. And I was like wow so if he didn't get. So little guy right where you'd be showing us a single lesson of the Rhonda. Every Friday you'd be shown up in what what I what have you and he was already ahead of the game using the Internet to get in this situation dialed again read books that was set MySpace he was resemble those. I there's any terrorists. Thomas is and he would like every city would go Joseph I was friends with Tonto. You can you confirm that attack attack attack everybody like. Wow so this is you played back in the day where of guys wanted to get after it. Perfect you've got to go through what apparently is now being considered the whole. The whole process. Is to be fought the idea of going out and meeting someone of your single guy this and that but now it's been so streamlined. That essentially you got a guy like you teammate who figured out how to have it all set up the floor you he didn't pac ten it's amazing and now. My source is not telling me that red book was they have pay for play site paper plant at the text line had gone again I don't know what yeah. Had a this vigorous I'm not quite pay per view you know but yet pay per view and as CN paper clip. Still on the Internet now but that get to circle back to oh yet can we come Saturday sorry. I took this Saturday you don't screw around in the NFL. Yeah security on the floor but yet room Jack's got a game the next morning what's going on. So mean you know amid open. And I'm in Tennessee so I don't want it is so media Limbaugh and certain guys the Coke can do is coming in in in in the security guide you can use it says a retired police officer that the team tires and he's here. Inimical to walk in a room hey are you doing look in the room and say hey make sure you're okay they totally. Certain guys go. At my head war about themselves that maybe would be a little Dicey maybe a more thorough search hello girls sort of particular individual. He's a party or he's out all the time. This comes in Yemen that are hit security in and in the coach. Any survival on the on on under coach. So he's obviously being the good book just getting ready for that game got talk about Gibbs who continue to place you lose their. Not digress for a so did the coach in history and the cult mostly sick. But what. Yemen and now I'm just trying to be good. Well this is the saying you're gonna room you can pack I. So he goes in the room joke. He started demanding it and looks in the closet no one's there looks around. The Eagles decided a bit may have belonged blankets over the in he has that kind of sticking out the coats this at the blanket. There was bill. I hit the glass half half I had asked the nominee I can't. Thousand dollar fine didn't play the first half. So you know it was so 5000 dollars revenue girl in the room Jesse Chatman last when LT gets yelled he gets thrown out at fifteen under but we put a lot about NFL fine man a girl in the room though the night before. Is money and women regulate us. Rocky then we can I. Yeah hey Buddy Guy while it was narrow legs the coach Mike Montgomery coming up next Jolo on bids back in a flash 95 points in the game. Now backed it show lowered dibs on 95 point seven game Russell Westbrook with the perfect triple double there calling and I'm pretty silly perfect triple double. Against San Antonio Cleveland Houston we'll say one of those good teams still your BP after that and did Philadelphia I believe. He blew up against the indeed lists sixers and beat by the way needs knee surgeries to disaster there as usual that plus LeBron in the hopes in Denver last night thirteen minutes to 630 welcome back to low and in 95 point seven game sick about this last night. Explain how this broke down the dead this morning in this is why my wife. God bless and the patience this woman demonstrates. Frequently were in conversations. And I might at times check out on her when she's speaking of Africa and as she's getting to appoint. I'll just look at her go hold that thought and I'll run into the other room and I keep this notepad firms like little nuggets in notes to show. And I'll just run in and write something down and come back. And this came to me yesterday when she was talking about. That's what I mean trouble that's a whole other story but. Relocation still trying to figure out how the owners are gonna play this vote on Monday when it comes to the raiders days. I came across something. As to another reason why yes vote might go through. We've talked about how California especially. And now other states are starting to wise up to the whole tax Payer money for stadiums. They're not necessarily willing to fund a billionaires infrastructure. I support that. There's money backing go towards better causes when Nevada ranks in the bottom three in the country and education. That's 750 million earmark this stadium could do a lot more help. And just simply building. A structure for football team's place in games that's the story for another day. The NFL does not want tax money to dry out. I started thinking you might get a yes vote here in part. Because it kind of serves as a message to Portland. San Antonio. And other cities around the country that has. If one of our franchises is struggling to get taxpayer money. And you find a way to come up with 56800. Million dollars you might be able to buy your way into the NFL. Big about that for a second. Find the teams with the stadiums that want to get re done everything was always about Los Angeles Minnesota threatened Los Angeles got taxpayer money for their new stadium. It's been happening forever but once LA got filled up. There was no more leverage for the teams to hold over the taxpayers. Mark stepped inning got Vegas and play against oak. But it Vegas comes off the table what's gonna be next well now you have this message that. People smaller cities. Smaller I guess to an extent maybe of new York at San Antonio. Is a big TV market. Right there. Jerry Jones might wanna block something like that put Portland you might be able to buy your way into the NFL in my crazy in thinking that did that that could be one of the reasons donors vote yes rewarding the cities that are willing to pay up to the stadium. So I think that might be further down on the list but it certainly could be a motivation and also it would be shot across the ballot. Cities that maybe struggle at times whether it's Jacksonville. Or I Tampa Bay maybe not agree case but they've been up and they've been down. He's certainly Tennessee when they struggled they struggled to put butts in the seats. Other markets where the team attendance may fluctuate a little bit this is a shot across the bow that. You know we've shown you now that we let a team walkway from Oakland if they in fact let the raiders go to Las Vegas and open obviously a top six market in the US so not only is it motivation to cities that don't have teams but it's a shot across the bow for the. Do. Any wrong. This is where I believe and I believed it. Someone is that there's a book didn't always talk about and talks about like a tree that's planted by the water and should not being the good book yes it. What message should not be moved us these teams. If you don't move these teams he builds stability. You build stability communities you've built real fans. By these teams up in uprooting move into different cities different states. You lose the fans that are in those cities in the to turn off. NFL would do who dumped just practice. To stop all these teams moving in he's musical chairs. Because it's not good for the brain and even though they're getting this taxpayer dollars all those different things. It shouldn't meal out. Here's what this team's you'd do based every single teen GO. One game a year should go and play at a neutral site salt lake city of Fresno. And Idaho. Here's how you build your brand and you continue to build your granny continue to get in new fans Gordy same market secure talking about. What you have a mutual you have both teams. Travel in now what you do is you get a influx of new fans knew I. I.s and are now on the amount of Boise and Fresno some of these people would net that would never go pro game would do because it's coming to their community. I'd like that approach and I think the league should look at that just like it don't Mexico does like to do LeBron. To what these smaller markets where they have the nice state and what they can host these games. The fact you can go more fan base but all that all of a sudden up in these teams are going to LA you look at the ramp. They lost a huge amount of fan base you look at the chart do you look Ellie charges now. They lost a huge amount of other chargers are no Mans where you don't have split and now of the raiders make this move don't lose a huge amount of fans and no gain some fans but. Is it worked for the brand alone. Term you brought up Boise before not just as a place to place single game we had this conversation I've ever you think you could put a team in Boise and thrive. And people as they're driving around right now might think you're insane. But you made the perfect analogy. Why do you think it team network and boys. Because of the community so tight in you look at how Boise State they sell all their games if you feel in that city that is I wanted to bass is one place is. I truly believe that you could support. I really believe that people come in branded because it'd be feared team. India is that community who believe that it wore Angel in the NFL RD has a community like Matt. Can we talk much. Al Green. What you think about the Packers what they're able to do also look at Kansas City the city it's a lot of people to surround it. But the city itself is really green Bay's populations a 105000. Boys he's got over 200000 people. I kept kicking that around I was like it'll it'll never happen because the market's not big enough and you don't have enough in the surrounding areas. But you would be able you would operate at maximum efficient shower. You would have that sold out because it Buick at Texas high school game the whole town absolutely shut down and the sides in the windows on the game. So gone of the game would make. Convict they've been sold for you look at the waiting listed in Green Bay Boise is that same type of feel seem to have the community. And did your over the. To Idaho hopefully hopefully with pot takes like this I can't pack my bags quick enough. I don't know six coach it's your crazy to think. The NFL's go to Boise let's leave let's bring based even mark coach Lorenzo wind gets Green Bay found their football club was it in 2017. Of course not they're so it's a generational. It's a cultural phenomenon and Boise I agree pro football's not a cultural phenomenon dude you're trying to start. From zero in a multi billion dollar league there's no way Boise is gonna pony up for a stadium like that and they're knocking a support team at that well. In my opinion it's more sustainable than in Vegas and Vegas is a consular type of town. You have people coming in its boast if it's all predicated on the market how money's coming in. If you look at Boise. Boise is a place did that it's a family it's a place where people coming. It is a place that can get behind in the ticket they believe that they are the first team you're talking about a community that would get behind April team. I think without a doubt. This community even though you talk about Green Bay it's got loan activity and it's been around for a long time I get that. But it's the people that make up Boise I think that would come out and support their pro team. Great news for the warriors last night LeBron James is science experiment. At that section of the frog didn't exactly work out now back it show lowered dibs on 95 point seven game. Did you see the island of Puerto Rico is experiencing a hair dye shortage that is correct sir. All blond haired it looks to be pretty much out everywhere. Did you see Angel put on with that look. He cut below what blonde it's I don't know I didn't recognize. I don't like the gong like I salute the little. You know I start what is here retire and GO meet Natalie your favorite that's your favorite part about based was sit here and deal with this guy he would sleep sideman I don't think he gets a lot of women Joseph you don't think he has a lot of Wimbledon that there it is dignity all each would seek out his bag. Obvious but instead was there a Gotti the optimal. It. I'll tell you doesn't have the luck Cleveland. The cavaliers are four and six over the last ten games four and six now they like to rest. To make sure everyone's thrash to make sure they're ready for what matters at the end of the year but last night you could not have been more rested. You played Sunday against the lakers in Los Angeles. Had Monday off you had Tuesday off and you went full tilt against the Denver Nuggets. Eight seed in the Western Conference sub 500 record and you got beat Hiller to post. This wasn't a tight competitive game that you lost weight you got beat up early. Often and lost 126113. Billion tuned in last they didn't tune in last night I should say. That final score is not indicative of how that beat down played out. Here's LeBron. After the game. Because exceptional guy and I think we. A fairer for us because we were immune to being you know how well we move bodies move the ball so we recovered pretty reviews for the group. Give it to secure the effect now as a group. And about a group of about individuals who are running just be more do more and Marmol group and in pain can preach toughness. Weird it's almost like LeBron wants his team to beat tough but he also wants them to be resting and coddled so to speak. Is this going to be a byproduct of this rest scenario we're seeing play out bids teams not having that toughness that we saw in the eighties I think. It's a byproduct of that but also the byproduct of being very late in the year and everyone started dragging get ready for the post season in. Unity here in the bronze comments talking about. Then being soft it starts at home LeBron has a negative thirty last night the negative. Thirty. In a ball game where your team only lost by thirteen so. You talk about the team this in the team that it starts with a hard look in the Mir and you sat out you had your coffee in LA was real cute. Then he came out and you got absolutely blasted. In the mile high city sell. You show up yet to put hard raster no rest it starts with each individual. How hard is it we hear this all the time especially in baseball but every sadly you ever talked to will said the same thing. How important the routine it's the pregame stretching routine the meal the way you listen to your music the way tape up your pat. Are creatures of habit a lot of assortment professional athletes are creatures of habit. Put this rest scenario. You've flipping the switch on your flipping the switch off we're gonna put the switch off another night. T get two point sweets sometimes now because of all this rest because of the way you handled the schedule maybe you go and reach to the well and it just isn't there. I think that's a phenomenal. Point GO that's it for May JT the brick coming up next hot and pray drop the drop the Mike. Good thing and that old book he talks about about to take you remind. You take your heart and religion. Just talking about for instance if you can get to the mine that I could take the heartening to the soul in its in its heart when I'm talking about a mentally. It's got physical Joseph it's a mental game basketball. Football. Baseball let me sports it's mental. I can go out there and I can say I'm going to we'll I've gets a Ray Lewis are complaining it's a Patrick Willis. Mentally I mill that I don't come appear physically. And I bring my heart in my mind in my office. I hate that you can take muscle ache my ability to play at a high level. Because of the fact he's gone and I'm not. It's too hard to switch that's what shall Protestant faith you can't teach that that's what kind of disagree mentally you gotta go only to a game. You'll have to going to a game mentally saint. I'm want to be ready to play in when you're athlete if you come up here and mentally you're not fair and also and you think that this is going happen. It's not so sometimes it's a disconnect in your back you talked about gives later on in the year people get war I get debt. But as an athlete in Europe and didn't pay you have to be able mentally to say. I'm not going to let my heart mentally physically I'm not going to go. That does the whole thing it's a mindset when you play a sport it is a mine said in its hard. To book their night and and night out the back the back to long grueling season. To mentally be in every single game. As gives mentioned LeBron James minus thirty. While on the floor last night in Denver as the cavaliers stole one point 6113 the nuggets. Now just they're razor thin. One game lead over the Celtics in the Eastern Conference in the race for the number one seat. From one MVP candidate to another Russell Westbrook on the flip side of the equation last night kids he's making headlines for a what exactly. It's called a perfect triple double jab he did not miss a shot six of six from the floor six of six from the line yet she didn't shoot. A three pointer which may be ill take a look at that realize that he's not a good three point user terrible three point so you may wanted to stick to the two's Ross but he also had. Eleven rebounds all the defensive then hit fourteen assists he did sort of over five times just another night for Russ. But a perfect triple double Joseph 1814. And eleven. And he didn't miss a shot first guy ever to do that oh by the way I tidy 28 minutes in an easy win over Philadelphia. A remarkable performance. Remarkably. Brutally efficient performance against the sixers deserves all the credit in the world for that but I think this hurts his MVP case. I do it's glamorous stats against bad teams. This is going to be the big knock against Westbrook when he goes up against hardened for the MVP award. Pardons team wins pardons team has beat the warriors in four games against the warriors this year. The thunder dinning even compete. In each of those four games they trailed by. At least 25 points every time 45 point deficits in all four of those games never kept it closer than sixteen in the loss. So yes it's great you can go out beat up the sixers. Like running backs from Alabama doing in the second week of the season against our sisters of the floor but how are you going to performing its L issue. Have a players step up in big spots. College you see this all the time yet these Heisman front runners that make it all the way into the middle of October and then what happens here in the meet in the conference schedule you go against the best in the business. Geno Smith. West Virginia's a perfect example. He was the Heisman front runner and the favorite to be the number one overall pick until he got into that conference schedule now what happened he can even get invited to New York. He didn't even get drafted in the first rap. About the level of competition. Westbrook having a remarkable season but he's not doing it against the high level of competition. And not just that that's why you guys and I'm not trying to be a homer but you guys beat up LBJ LeBron James. You talk about ward Joseph you talk about numbers when he doesn't play look at this team. And you tell me which team has more talent the ads. RO KC and think about it he's doing exit cats are much more town absolutely amen brother and that's why I think LeBron should be in this conversation since you just alluded to they have to wait much more talent what about when tire re in love and all those guys are still planned and bonds not plant would much more talent in this team's not able to win it just goes to show you how. What a player that this guy. Is in when he say not being physical and all those things because you have to bring his A game all the time as well if he wants the cavs to win it and when you look at the guy. Dialect gotten over thirty. And look at the minutes that he put on in what he's done. It's unbelievable the kind of performance that you kidnapped LeBron and so when you talk about editing you talk about a guy like Westbrook. When he plays against the boats and has fifteen points. I don't play and he gets more and what do seed in BP step up and play big in those type of moment. Johnny Quayle was huge. For the San this is a giants last season and if he's huge again he's looking at an opt out. That question plus what's the latest with Sonny gray house DA's approach. Next contract Paul spore coming up cancer that more Nextel and it's not about what's on the now backed it show lowered dibs on 95 point seven game. Music to my ears. Read before we come back on did looks amigos. I capex. And yeah it gives us hot last week too he's got picks Gloria will reveal though it's. Thirty minutes from now how. Media I'd two solid. Too and I love and then you know another four or five that I like to that I really like would you be willing to give one that you really like in about five minutes are absolutely all right. And I'll go ahead 30 and one last week on the side went in with yet to follow you what you go ahead be Barry Bonds a B Jeff Kent perfect shot up Barry Bonds' welcome back to the organization probably sometime this year you have to assume they're gonna retire the number. To be a good event to. A couple of cold ones made fire up the murder found according to coach Mike Montgomery nudges it just adds about a fine points of the Iraq. So the NFL we know what they're doing this weekend. Owners' meetings in Phoenix and the big story if raider nation the vote on Monday and got to add interesting layer to that we'll get to in a little bit after the picks in five. Ball one of the items up for debate. His NFL overtime the league is trying to find a way to improve upon the current philosophy. Now personally. I think the way they implement this is just bone headed. They've added so many different things all well if you score first originally it was over now is that if you score but it's a field goal the other team have exactly one opportunity. Hogwash. Look it's very simple. Take the college football philosophy. Implement the NFL with one change. Teams start at the fifty yard line that's it had you ever come across anyone. Anywhere on planet earth who has complained about college football's over time. Never they love it now I think now you hear debates about speed of play in MLB. About these new rules MLB is trying to bring in you're hearing about resting issues in the NBA every sport has little issues here in there that garner all types. Of arguments and debates you'll never hear anyone complain about college triple overtime. So implement it in the NFL but because the kickers are better because the offense is so much more efficient and effective stardom at the fifty yard line. Well. Solution now personally that's the direction I think they should go I'm not sure if that happens did where do you stand on. I stand that it should stay as it is they fix it to the point where it's as good as it's going to be. A wise man once only gel. Offense to out the team as a third defense counts of third. Special teams broke out at third so we're gonna play sixty minutes yeah. We're gonna go hard nosed and all three phases because all three phases count equally know what so we get to overtime. The most important time of the game of all we're gonna take 13 of the game. And all but eliminated. With no kick offs. And no punts I don't like that. I don't like it for college I can tolerate it for college because it's it's a different sport and you 75 to 72 games are okay. But in the pros. With the over under the totals the amount of money being gambled and the fact its specialty is truly our third. You need to have kick offs in need have Ponce I like the way it is now each team gets the ball lots and let's see a touchdown you're going to get the ball. If they score a field goal. And you get the ball and you can't score a field goal you deserve notes so you sink stand pat. Stand pat the overtime is perfect as it is Lorenzo. I'm would you Joba does your right did often got his third defense and special teams. Now look at DNC's record I don't know what who's a new field goal kicker auto it's. Eat them broke the record has been in mount high animal PR talking distance distance of Phil you're on your question you would probably see 64 you'll see Google's even be more premium if you start at fifty so you'll see try taken more chance I. I like the fifty could you still special teams will still play a huge part in an. And I think it's offense will be a place still he's part in defense. In the field position at the fifty you try that sixty. I like it at the fifty to speed up the game I think you'll get a quick a winner. Now there's a problem with this and it's gonna affect a lot of people. People who cherished records baseball obviously the record cherishing his second to none there's there's there's nothing like baseball records those are hollowed ground. When you go four possibly five overtimes as we see sometimes in college football you're gonna have increased statistics increased passing yards rushing yards. Tackles increased touchdowns would that end up being a deal breaker because you know four overtimes and suddenly guys may be thrown for 600 yards in the game. And that's not necessarily get a mean what it means right now how big of a deal breaker would that be. For me it's a huge deal breaks so the stats even if football would matter. Yes you have a guy throws for nine touchdowns because of some cockamamie overtime where they get the start. With the ball the fifty and they went 8481. Of the highest scoring NFL game of all time because some contrived overtime. I don't like it plus you don't want these guys we have all these concerns about safety you don't want these guys playing all those additional snaps I know there's additional snaps in overtime. But there's a finite end to it. With this so you have four overtimes five overtimes when that six OT in college. It's too much of it's the morning game now it's bleeding into my afternoon game did the thing over leave overtime as it is. College football. And anyway Colin Cowherd yesterday suggested his idea for how you could change its fourth place. I college football you're gonna start I don't know 2535 yard might want to win I think it's 25. You're gonna get four place that's it no first downs. Nothing else for place to do with as you see fit and that's how you play it out. So you can be did a little bit quicker. But at the same time. You are drastically altering the manner in which the game is normally played how would you see that. So it's first and goal from the 25 and you either score a touchdown you kick a field goal or you fail in your field goal. It until position. Well they all started what I'd like college you're gonna start at the same spot both teams but you've got four place doesn't matter if you pick up twenty yards on the first play it's still sick Ingle. You lose ten yards second angle right you get four plays to score no matter what no first downs the last so the stakes are out of the game. Yup Ford announced the score to me it takes away the essence of the football game which is ten yards to get a first down. What's wrong with just leaving it. As it is where a team has to score three or more points. Or the other team gets a chance to have the ball well number one I don't wanna tie. That would be reason number one idol this this system creates the possibility of a tie I don't want ties I don't wanna invest that much timing game watch everyone walk off gonna. Gang will be died. Now I'm at unacceptable to I don't wanna see ties in sports. Your question you tuchman you know help me help me out to this process summoned before plays no first downs started the 25. Now fight picked up eight yards a twenty yards. Do like it that particular time in about starred at the fifty. Even if I got a burning intensity you're starting 120 OK so if after a four plays. Both teams have the ball is it in the once scores it's a tie or did it's pretty easy going like college okay. What you got four plays it it it creates the opportunity to make things a little bit different I thought it was kind of fasting to kick around. I haven't spent enough time on a couple holes and that's the key. Anytime you have a good idea that you bring to someone you don't wanna here how good the idea it's your pitching a TV show in new bred by French all of this is wonderful. I don't wanna hear it's wonderful what I want are the problems I wanna find out what's wrong with everything so I can solve those issues I don't know suddenly here this is great because. Give me the bad news give me the issues what would what if you like you do if you start at the fifty right and you had those four place same thing. No no first downs. And it's predicate until this and so you get only two yard T try to prove he missed it the team gets three yards they don't have to kick a field or they say can go but. The homeless is predicated just don't fill position in the and you have a winner every team a time why donors are we talking about you started the 54 plays right. Burleson and Smart you're sank to okay its first first four plays picked up three yards on his size second in 47. Yes second for second place pick up another three arts so it's third in 43 right next finally get one yard so forth and forty to go right. Kick if kick the film though are eager to say you know if I can distill boy and I miss cause is still at a Matt Gogel Brit. I'm and I'm hole my defense don't let this team pick up eight yards. If they pick up eight yards or more games over. Are how excited and happy for it to come down to a measurement didn't get a new data. How backlash this measurement we'll decide that is our champions I like the idea to get out of the box. To go ahead and just. Past don't mean to play that. And it's it's it's. Roche is about runs don't make as boo you literally out of the singing the ocean side. I appreciate the fact you think outside the box that line so kudos to you won kudos now was garbage of an idea garbage you had a box and you found trash but it's nice to do me a favor come back into the box. My cuts to go to Mike Pence at his normal. What we. I'm actress Anne McCaffrey about how he's been the ruler test I went to get that experience I need to win in overtime and I. It is going to get you only want to. Here's what yours is gonna do it's gonna bring about the end of the national football and don't want to be in the sports congratulations. You found a way to take something we all love and destroy. Sound what might have an expose these scouts. Volume ticket in the EPO. Did we promised six we promised locks do you have a lot for me I do it and that's what you did. Assistant to all the removing odds are you had a chance to go and see if they got a half yard needed to win the most important game in France and its rulers in here it looks like we're gonna need them organs you know I was on Michigan that money's gone to Michigan the in my. Is on the side of Michigan. Or win in the game might force would take the ducks take that point and half and thank me later. I like this coming April Wisconsin out there to two point. Whip Wisconsin also the second one it's a ticket right now logs mobile UCL I like you silly to take down Kentucky.
