They are listening to the primetime and eyes against duke I'm suit by the way podcast brought to you on the stand by your local less while tires and are doing the right thing since 1950 to you not cute. We'll bring you news. We have pride they have talent. They had had them feel good about Isaac consume are ready to predict every NFL games out somewhere there usual laser like accuracy they go so deep. The postal assisted change real GNFL challenge presented by Jane drill team and only 1% list entry and I. Good change real CNN filled challenge recognizes consumed on Jay Nady. I hear our records so far. For the season. Did picks for the last couple weeks he hasn't been and we missed two weeks beyond Patrick and I made a bunch picked last week could have been written. Yes and this is knots with week fifteen or sixteen. But down. Soon gonna airlock and a vicious conflict but it looks like I win because he's he's out this week so. This is it what if you go on for even humans Diana you're at the fifth edition pink. Because I'm I'm 2417. And one. Soup is 2317. In two and lynch is 1922. And one by my count but I don't have your picks from last week. They'll pick just for fun anyway we seventeens always hard to ciento John's he can now find it online at Tinny need to cannot come plan long against all the personality suits stand. Try to make change you team look like. Man's. Very difficult week because. You know some teams have nothing to play for us. There's a lot of games on the list that I felt like it was put to avoid other about the war happy yet because of the cowboys are resting players the Steelers arrest him. Players will let Steelers game is a very simple. The Steelers arrest dean they're studs right they don't have any input from their locked in the class they're playing Cleveland. But is that. But I no one will win that game right all the games started is a twelve and a half point favorite for the Steelers to bet down to six it's got to not touching it. Know like why would you bet on how did you bet on the game that's like betting pre season NBA basketball camps. The game is getting ended a 33 tie I know the game is gonna end in a four to four times. That's just the good it's got killed by a good the most incredible game of all time for safety's only scored. Never happened probably. I'll go because well I want to do much better turn. I don't Kansas City. Is my first pick looking through and we're gonna get more into deep playoff scenarios. And just what is on the line. For certain teams in week seventeen coming up at 430. LB ER Seahawks twelve slice segment and rule out we'll take a look at all those scenarios. But Kansas City. Does. Have something to play for as they visit San Diego the chiefs. If they win in the raiders lose to chiefs. I'd give him. They get a body good byes and they get to to see it did she swing in the raiders lose in the raiders are playing Denver of course there pars out of Kansas city's any claims only. I think San Diego's male the end. So can't aim gives season covering machine my god the chiefs are just flat out undervalued. They have covered one. The C covered 1234. Of their last five. They just hammered the Broncos. 33 Tamil intensity a right to amend their only a given up six in San Diego. You mentioned that Denver Oakland game and that's right I'm gonna go because why not I'm not do well anyway I'll take my favorite team was eliminated from the playoffs Denver's one and a half point favorite against the raiders at home. And I first elected that a win why would they be a favorite and I realized because the starting quarter rest and be whomever blowing ya so TT works. Scranton strong. It's perhaps stronger or not. He's not going to be great games that Broncos defense in this building good. Despite the fact their offenses are absolutely putrid salting Denver minus one and half a melon because I'm always the raiders are gonna have you been with employment that's. Alls he had to UN nominee go obviously you follow the straight up head to head on your ass right now all right Christina are confident gimme Oakland I'll take the points. Plus so well when I getting these 911 and half a politics that one and have an omen going. Is a quarterback in that is the dead Beverly stepped down from their car but. Denver does that mean in play for an Oakland does Oakland is up playing for this is a heat like this a huge game for Oakland. Because. If Oakland does not win this game they then go. They could there's a potential for them to go on the road and have to play the next week as opposed to win this game. Get a buy and guarantee a home game the next week I mean that's a huge swing today and they've got to win this game. I think Denver looked amber is is just been overrated I know I started for no. And they do have a good divas they do offensively they have no offense that's right and and and their defense is good but it's not as good as it was last year. I I'm not that scared to Denver and adding Denver you know with the season. Tees and over they're not going to class I think they'll mail lists in. And in Oakland is gonna go into Denver and win in man England's gonna throw for 750 yards. Okay not true but maybe a 150 yards here's the thing about guys like that neglect. We we watched we watched we'll Ximian on the other side for Denver is a great example. You meets you he doesn't but you immediately look at. But I EC and probably starting in ego got the going to be terrible. But if you look at some of these guys who are not starters in the league dare they are they should be back ups these are guys who do have some ability to question is. Is how are they gonna play are they gonna say OK we think Matt will glow lane. Would what ability he does have he's not Derek Carr far from Google but were gonna still stress still we're still gonna take some shots. Down the field outside the numbers. Can he make those throws or is he so badly he's he'd like Matt Cassel led. That you have to do is run the ball and throw a three yard outs and that's all you can do I think Oakland might surprise you in they might try to keep that. Balanced but somewhat open with from the glowing and don't be surprised if he hits a couple of. Maybe it's my bronco fan biased because as a fan I do not like the raiders very much for watching them this year. I I I wanna save up most of why they're so great outside the defense is Derek Karr. I feel like they don't have he's really good they don't have the best offensive weapons MR Cooper has been pretty bad this year to be honest Michael Kraft she's been great. And beyond that they have the TV is Marie splitting carries and value does it help you from the back. I feel like a lot of its been Darren Clarke and also when I see that he's hurt. My first thought was. They're not gonna yeah chance in the playoffs because he's the one who's making it happen he's special and have a point is the opposite of Spanish. You know I don't think it's sad cynical but I really don't think it's that simple now let me let me leave room. Who's gonna pull ups and stand look comic effect picked evidence that freedom for yeowomen for the for the candidate the second pick my stuff. No good. Take Baltimore. Ineffective against the Bengals. The pay goals are active and Marvin Lewis said he cities in the back next year I don't know how on earth he's coming back it's been proven. That what would made the Bengals good it was hue Jackson then Mike Zimmer and Marvin Lewis was lucky to be the head coach of that team how they're both gone and the vandals now sock. I he still put them played degree so he's not going to be back July Bernard expert Jeremy hills bad. I don't remember doing to raise her putting the ravens to win this team so thick and pretty easy for me. This and what can. Please his Redmond coming in which went when he just talking to pick up. Your pick him. You have him. OK so where do you think the raiders rank. Rushing. That was the status lieutenant I would say I related to two of the top three teams in rushing our Cleveland and buffalo. I would say they ring. Cop beat me Russian and they're tied for eighth. Well I don't think you run amok but it is very good thank you Ramallah they just don't seem like you very much but I'm just saying I think it's gonna be really and CC would Del Rio does. In terms of just how they how much faith they put in. In the blink likes like you immediately think the goings gonna suck but. You know place said he's in the league for a reason he's not a starter don't expect him to be their car but can he make. Can't can he hit over the top once or twice. The play action or something if they given that opportunity here it's water jets politics against the leaving Chris Harris and I know behind them superstars no bra. No breath. Yeah how many people know that both those both those dudes there Jihad bros but. Super Bowl champs to pulling that out I'm saying not that young don't underestimates grand strong okay is my third picked. It is your third pit yes. And I have one more to this world and did you lose your note if you pick to Oakland and you've picked Kansas City. No I can't move my third hole. Humiliate my third normally go dig through the garbage for your rooted and well I you know damage go with them to go to Washington they're they're at home. And they're favored by seven half of the giants giants have nothing to play for Washington is having to play for because ZAM playoff spot is on the line. And I think that's one of those teams for the giants roller they don't care about the game in Washington wins by a you know. Tony my final pick is going to be buffalo missed take a minus three and a half against the jets. Man oh man what one U room what difference when your makes for New York top bulls it would have loved them. They played really well last year just missed the playoffs this year topples almost gets fired. The fact that the jets are so bad in the bills just have Rex Ryan fired. And a feeling they're gonna play pretty hard for if you win I believe whose beat interim head coach up there think the players like little lot in buffalo. And I believe there and make quarterback switch to proceed at this stage Emanuel. And I don't know really matters because the jets are just persons so honored to buffalo western house I've been against the bills all yelled it bills as well. Right that's Arafat's challenge 4 o'clock on. Thursday's I do think that will continue that going into the playoffs as well so on an emperor. Six big playoff picks next week when he's back are for fifteen coming up next. I'll what shall we do. Let's take a look at well let's listen in we're gonna hear some audio of Scott Barnes the new Oregon state athletic director he has pressed on it today. So play a few few clips of him and then RC doc segment take a look at the NFL playoff series week seventeen coming up led to a 430. That's all straight ahead on the fan. I'm rabbis against duke guards and maybe I know. Clarion state introduces. They're new eighteen today. And his name is. Scott Barnes. Creating here's an audio from him in just a second but first prize Brad. Right now we're gonna give away parity is to see the trans Siberian orchestra and a be demoted senator. A Friday December 30 folks that according to my iPhone is tomorrow. I think it's there available at disdain Ticketmaster locations. Man what a score you win those on the radio tonight Paramount not about the tenth collar. At 5032501080. That's 50325 go to an eighty. I'm calm now and mica before you get on the phones. Where my Brooks eclipse or might not Brooks right Scott Brooks. Barn you're gonna have the worst tyrant green Mercedes. Barn Z now lose guys great listen. So Oregon State introduces Scott Barnes couple things you need to know about him. I know nothing about him but I was reading that he is north of us guy. He's from Spokane. Originally. And he's been around. Came from Pitt. But damn he's a West Coast duty and wanted to get back to the West Coast. And the most pertinent bit of information about him. Is he hired Geary Anderson the current Oregon State football coach when he was a Utah State in 2008. And so of course none of Gary Anderson diskette the extension I did see that miles on vacation. In these guys have a good. Are to have a good working relationship and get report. And if he read I carriers piece on Barnes he you'd think the guy can walk on water while curing cancer at the same time. Outplayed us sound like he's a man of us some substance. Who has a vision. Who has good ideas. And it is true to himself you know he's a guy who believes in in his ideas and and is bold and won't make news and I like that because. You know. I think that there are other I think there are a lot of CDs particularly eighties this specific position in college sports. I think a lot of them are guys who who urges latter climbers. Who. Have caught you have some qualities to get where they need to you know to be of of major. By university of like director but I think a lot of them. Want to just look good they wanna be 10 in what they played a media game. And done you just trying to look good in not screw up as opposed to being in. Bolden have big ideas and and and see them through. And it sounds like in in I was reading to some quotes interiors peace in the Tribune from people who work with Barnes he. In the ice and they say he everyone comes just a glowing about the guy which you know histories and then. And real people live work through them like him I guess you know hitting it close to people who think he was an a hole. May you well below goes out the article I I don't know euros seems like every loves them whose first. Somebody get tired it's almost always positive what a great hire Brady. And you know what I great recruiter great news. And they're gonna defensive coordinator before cares. Doesn't matter really. Above average to adequate head coach although in fairness to Brady Hoke can mean the guy a one year. You know. Do you think you live mail. Through football now he went from not wearing a headset to being told to Wear a headset on the field. Admiral said the defense couldn't get any worse than it was under Don gullible boy were wrong. I nearly you know. I was minimally if you're leaving out the best part. Never forget it we are talking about this earlier in the week in new. Teams really don't tackle in the fall anyways how many days do you did you venture to guess I don't. I'm anyone's. Coach. We still don't know about that darker. Coach. Its sense. Of doing this only nine let's play some clips here is Barnes is a 100 day plan Mike that's what he says. When we think about what that first hundred days even looks like roll roll. When users via an assessment instrument that would prevent swat analysis straight week this is optimized rest. To go nowhere from from all sorts of folks coaches student athlete leadership. Our constituents the voters want to get it also what were we should battle BP's assessment opportunity for me. Not we won't make any changes. And at times you will get a lay of the land. We'll understand where people set mature folks are on the race to go on the right bus. And and move from their votes absolutely. About thoughtful assessments. Four finishers from. When we have they're we had a assessment we had swampland instrument smut planned. Pulse analysis. Assessment opportunities for me to beef all right here's you did voice. But I coming at the end Allen barns that I think Barnes. You have the sky onto them to really understand what he's all about. I'm sure I mean none as silly what do you expect him the intern press conference a lot of I know I just get tired of the cliche this is tired of it don't we all. But it never really in my honest we didn't know although Rio Cam Newton when he's not cliche because I'm not being open enough. So biggest kill him with us all right here is Barnes on something about economics. Economic efficiency. I guess there's another buzz turns up. Dotson is an interest or negative via. There's a cat and an academy out of Texas and Dave when I was at Utah State. And it doesn't national champion for economic efficiency based on dollars spent championships one. I said thank you very much for that championship but I don't like to copy about twentieth next year because we don't have enough. Oh resources we need to gold resource so if we have to spend more to it took to do that we need to do that. So there's this notion there's this balance between being really good stewards of the fun you have when we wanna be accountable. Tort donors and urged that course every day in terms being rerouted Stewart's. But we need it when it pilgrims we need to give our coaches. And resources they needed. To compute the highest well. And that means holding the resources being great stewards of what but continue to build those resources and well we clarify expectations planning process we'll know where we. And we need to know what we'd do our coach coaches and it took to be successful so. Bigger storage is really important and had. Creating new revenue streams to grow that is really pour. Now question that led into that blows the program was arrested said. Or a system running Al lost the last few years them in you at Utah State's ran in the black your entire time mayor. What kind of direction Uga looked taken malice is Abbott I was actually pretty interest to answer saying it's great to be you know in the black and being in the positive but. If you need to spend to win able spend what little one make you know his cook the books. And there is. Yeah yeah racked up dad yeah I'm really rich that's that's the plan. The new America. Through the old America again you know. Facilities for slot. I picked coach Casey had a ready set scattered so what do you think about the what footprint. You can throw a baseball from one facility the other that's how tight it is and that's special because what that does it creates a student athlete experience. You're you're together right in and so as I haven't toured this building but I've I've seen it on line up read about it. Phenomenal. That this this facility will all. Will compete with anybody in the country Bob. I'm really impressed overall obviously we've got some help unless we've got some small things to do over time and we'll capture all that and social master plans won't won't want to and yours really. Connects with with the university's plans ruined dial that in. And understand what's coming but I really like the votes we've got some great phones practice facilities. You know coach Casey's done a wonderful job to burn iconic baseball facility in having two bad. I think that she is so what's next and how we get there you know and there's always what's next so wolf. Lower early part of it and created a plan and understand what those priorities are how fun. Danielle facilities master plan like you said all the right things I don't know what's next Hillary stay and I think there on a pretty good trajectory aiming he's taken over. What seems to be pretty healthy situation. With side Gary Anderson a locked. The facilities improve mean. As they're building those out and then went bankroll. Yeah emanated a good coaches I had although Boris in basketball's atrocious this year but still to go seem like he's the right guard yet I think he kind of on hold on him I just jarred. Pretty good situation to take over I think his big thing is going to be. Raising the funds young he'll come in and do his set facilities master plan in his analysis and there's a hundred day plan right he'll tell all these plans analysts paid veritable Lou Lola great obviously knows he's doing the question is. You know. Kenny fund. In housing and a funded and so I think John you know it's it's fundraising yet a squeeze more out of a fairly. I'd drive a turn it down there isn't a big donor base and so on I think I think got to be keep I think you know Jerry state and I think you feel really good about where you at. And no way you can go I think that I think the real question moderate state. Would be what is you know what's the ceiling for them what can they be calm. Being there in Corvallis and down. You don't maybe. Scott Barnes after a couple of months on the scene will be able to come on NTELOS say I think we can beat Jesper he's got to get his. Feet wet and in kind do all of this assessments and now season. That kind of thing can master plan set a personal verilux bounce yeah and so yell them all the Woolsey wouldn't see what he. But he conjures up but I think yellow good people at Oregon State. And does it seems to be based on what people are saying about Scott Barnes speed add another one to the mix. Our icon next. This is the Seahawks report it's the twelfth sighs I'm Nicole inaudible. Morgan that we were gonna get into LA planned for today was to get into that the NFL. To lead the NFC. Which has a lot more. You sort of years in the AFC gaseous charity. Gave got all six teams Nancy's sister kind jockeying for position deer season Justine. As we go into week seventeen I wanna get to the abdomen move at 515. So next I'd I wanna get into what Richard Sherman is. He's. You know is he with the media. And this is on the edge learn about the dad and didn't follow this allows away NN and join dig into that so we're getting into that next of our CI accent at the twelfth slice is a four. 32. And here's Michael sports and on ten and maybe elsewhere in bossi acts play the niners this week. I'm probably going to be pretty ugly is looking at the spread spreads nine and a half. Demand that offensive line. The Seahawks have been snowing consistent the last like six or not there a year might just don't think it's their year but hey you never know. I wanna switch gears and talk about Richard surely now I need you did to us to kind of Q descent. Of what's been going on with Richard Sherman in the medium okay. So believe it was two weeks ago there was a play in the game where the Seahawks called a pass play in the red zone near the goal line. Richard Sherman got really angry. About it because you one of them are on the ball reminds you of the Super Bowl will move against the patriots. On the sideline he starts yelling at Gerald album whole coaching staff like screaming at them telling them how dumb or for calling a pass play. In the subsequent press conference for that week on Tuesday that Tuesday after the game. I get a lot of questions about it people are asking her about it and he's getting kind of annoyed. And at the end he goes up to this guy I think his name is Jim Moore he works superb simultaneous in Seattle radio station. He goes up Tillman goes. I can ruin your career. And he goes oh yeah how how can you do that he goes all tellem the pull your press pass when he goes okay. And then Sherman you know walks away or something like this there's threatens the ruins is remiss 'cause career. He tweets later in the day he apologizes. I very much respect the media bubble block. And the mystery he did not show up to his press conference and then he went in many missing has locker said it's a privilege for you guys have yet they're gonna miss him when I'm gone. So alone in a nutshell that's Vista what does happen. And I it's interesting Richard chairman is one of the smarter guys in the league I think he is good filly got it probably will miss him when he's gone he's he's interesting guide that. I'm I am starting to grow tired of sports figures trying to bully the media IE I find that. You know who would Berkshire was here. On this this planet this great planet of ours he would come on with us every Wednesday. And he would always tell stories old tiny stories new zeal boxing writer. And as such a good radio guest but he would always say you know you eazy. You know you he would ride on the train with baseball players. In image was and his GAAP. Between. You know it's today's sports figures in today's athletes and the media I mean now because of two things one and mainly the money. And the most athletes. Not all but many look at the media as. Didn't peasants mania you're better you're richer. You're smarter but. She used to do evolve it to the point where you just where you've you've basically you don't treat them with respect. Really pisses me off I hate it and it happens a lot in there are a lot of its sports. Types people in sports who think. That they can control the media when the reality is. The the more you try to control it Bill Lester going to get what you want ate a working respectful. Relationship. Will work in your favor a more often than not and I it blows me away. That people are Smart is Richard Sherman and there are others are particularly people here locally who who try these tactics. In the bully tactics. And they typically don't work. And they're demeaning demoralizing and it it amazes me that these are urged generally pretty Smart people and this is how they choose to go about things I think this is a real problem. And the I just don't think me having the gap. Between. Where players are end in where the media is is bigger than ever. In L I was due the money the second thing is I think social media you know we knew when you have like other players should be now. Which it it was Derek Jeter and may be too bright to ball like remember about. It's it's basically. Where players can you know create their own continent and tell their own stories. Without the media for good upset. Is it is good there's some good stuff on there from sometimes it's you know you got to remember that it's it's the spin coming from. The players' side which they did there's two sides to every story so. I I eight. I think that on social media today. Players don't feel like they need the media as much as they used to because they can just you know get out there on stuff on their Twitter and and in reach other fans and such that way you know need to media to do it sunning because of those two things there's been a real disrespect of the media. When. I just an and that's it's fine to dislike it. But I think it's. I just I just hate it when anyone treats. Someone regardless of the of the jobs they do was such disrespect you seeing this more more. In the media and it's and it's BS I think it's BS and in these guys don't get it. And Richard Sherman threatening to take away a media's. A media. Credential a credential is ridiculous he couldn't do that we could not no I absolutely could not. And that's why would you say Jim Moore yeah I think that's him that's why he laughed items like c'mon dude really mean get over yourself. So what's interesting about Richard Sherman is he's everything that we want athletes to be with the media because it does appear. Backe has a good working relationship with the media right he tends to be very honest. He tends to be a little bit wacky tenths a lap what the media during his press conferences. But because of that I almost feel like. He feels like he can go about one step further and get angry at them too because he's been so nice of them he's got up there Russell Wilson and yet just. Coach speaking about it now he's up they're being himself so. It's kind of this weird lies were he's awesome and wanna hear him talk but if he crosses and it's bad. And I was sitting there yesterday thinking about this and it's it's funny or interesting about yesterday as us and here I was watching. Sports thinner over to him less rotational I saw Jimmy Butler doing as their view totally random hit a game winning shot yesterday. He was laughing he was joking with the media he was how limited time and I assume they're gonna fight if I was an athlete. Would I be like Jimmy Boller was yesterday or what I'd be like. Cam Newton or Russell Wilson and to mean I still don't wanna be like to revoke it once wouldn't it make that part of your job even if you don't like it more interesting if you were just like yourself and honesty can laugh at people yeah when Matt make it better than seem they're going well we played really hard of course membership policy yet. I'm would be a 100%. And I I think it just comes on to people it's like man how big of a jerk are you. Other aegis treat the people there's likely when you go Mike Lynch you an iron nobody's we go into a restaurant. I treats a server with just as much respect as I would treat of course you brought Obama if you like your army it's like it's people. So so this idea that you can now just pee all over the media and their peasants in atrium like scum. I think that's BS men like you see it way more now because of these. These rich entitled athletes who think. Mediators have they just have a way in their head that they think things should go in the media and they're and they're just wrong they're there does. You know they don't understand why the media is there an ounce of the sink in a bigger CL UED you get more what you want by treating people with respect so. Richard Sherman yacht. I disliked a lot of the Seahawks antics over the years at the same time they're very entertaining. They are adjusting will probably will miss Richard Sherman when he's done but he cross a line here. And I just. You just can't stand it another guy says you know we you can text your 55305. And down. He was saying all good points the other thing. About you know why there's this this big gap to where the media is an end in sports figures these days. Is a lack of journalistic standards in the media and it does seem like. The that is true because you have anybody can report alien blogger a bunch Twitter followers or whatever. And I think that does. Upset the apple corps I think that makes. You know it's like one guy writes an unfair story or says something unfair is a hack. And then the entire because of that one experience that experience that athlete of that GM or whatever. The entire media gets labeled and in treated. How that guy. How they treat that you know and I think there are a lot to me is just it's different now. But at the same time I think this is general respect for people. And their jobs. And it's going away and it's pretty ugly I mean it's pretty ugly. That's interesting point because. The player can have respect for the media all he wants but if one media member. Does not have respect for the player and goes on him breaks a private conversation or whatever. In does sum him that would be deemed. Too bad or wrong. Then why does the player have to keep being nice that a person with that because not everybody respects everybody like we're talking about and sometimes that means the media does not respect in the athlete. And that's that's a problem too. You know I think of the gods honest do you know these guys get Ellis money. And they were their asses off to reach the pinnacle Dick of their professions. And it's. A lot of them have a god complex and you can see why I mean there there amazingly gifted. And you know so then you look at what the media does need a wolf. I'm way better than that I can do that had to go there I think there in in sports. A lot of players. A lot of GM's a lot of coaches. A lot of owners. All think it's very easy to do with the media doesn't make you do a better than the media does it's it's like this. Known you know it's just like this entity that. Did pass to be there that. Is sort of inconsequential. And they just wanna get him out of the way as a chip Kelly's. You know chip Kelly's view of the media. I think has evolved somewhat but when he was here oriented guy he was a nightmare to deal with easy Justin understand. You know what the media was what it was all about it and think that it that it mattered at all in what. You know in accomplishing his goals but the reality is it's around it's hearsay is quite a conduit to your fans in New York. You know people who follow what you do and I think he should be treated with more respect yacht to like get. There are bad ones there's no question but Richard Sherman and smother people and I've seen. And the try to bully. And and be little these tactics. It's it's weak in its and in its mainly due to their own insecurities pilots Milan club next the ducks' big win every UCLA last night. 449 on the fan. What size it's. Double attacks not just Richard German media fluff. This guy says so you guys opinions of the media is biased because you are the media. He you know I mean I know. Well but hey this just a couple things one. I think there's a real. Ignorance. Out there. Regarding. The median general and and different types of comedian who has and who has a media. Because times it's just generally assumed that were media here but if you listen to our shackle. I think you know that were really not what we are is. Or radio hosts who are media observers we know people. In the media of course talked people in the media but we also. I talk to athletes and on on the other side in and coaches and GM's on the other side so work or in the business no question. But at least in does you know for the sake of their shell coming out we don't cover things on a daily basis in fact we. Could not talk about the blazers. For three months and you know we be finest play those things is how well we're not beholden to any one thing right here because. The trailblazers are in town and is there's a main of ways to host a radio show and now quite frankly go our Sports Radio shows and reigning title sports ever. So you know. I mean technically technically were media because you think of everyone who's in radio TV and print journal it is all media but this is just it's let's keep this change I don't really consider myself of a member or are true member of the media. Because that's a slap in the face to true media people like. The Jason quick of the world who are covering these local team and actually report here in central zone covers the dot went on a daily basis and breaks stories and stuff like that that is not our. That's how we do here it's not our goal starter interest. Who you know were were we have other you know priorities. But I can see why you would think we are media quite frankly I think we just. What I trade is a step back and look at it. Impartially look at the medium partially I think it's a fascinating dynamic to watch these so these athletes in these sports figures you know. Interact with with the media these days another one says. Every place they go it's a gotcha reporting style. And that's true to an extent. Because pretty much everyone's a reporter now ruins got a camera phone and they're watching you. But I you know I think guys you got to understand if you cover a team on a daily basis. On a local level. That you can't you can't get away with that got you reporting stuff you there is a working relationship. They you have to have respect. Of visit as a media member just like. They have to have respect for you if you're recovering you know is if you're covering seventy bases there's a lot of study you are not putting in print or you're not putting on your radio show when you're not putting in. Your column or Europe BL a on your TV show. A because you need that relationship yet to be careful at the fine line now if you're. Somebody on the outside. Sure you complain that gotcha game which may be careful because if you're unfair. And if you're. Not good at it. Europe I mean you're out. So. Hello I'd I don't know that. That that's necessarily true that the media is just gotcha media now Ali a lot of really good media. And if you cover something on a daily basis you've got to mind your teasing cues you cannot just be thrown out. Everything that you hear you got a vet your stuff. I you've got to consider your relationships it's it's very down. You know it's kind of like a game merits complicated yes it is yes this absolutely is. I'm yet to be fair yet to be fair because otherwise you won't get the access you know Nolan says. Thus we have here. It's interesting dynamic because the players are a holes because the rich but they're rich because the media coverage. They have nothing without this. Anywhere isn't gaffe we have nothing without the press and TV deals. Yeah downstream. Just reading. Nifty hook or threaten to tax topic but Diaz like yours three. It's over and respect for jobs don't be teacher and a true. Character shows when you're upset Sherman showed he really believes he's above the others. He's above all others and they exist to serve him I totally good that we are seeing map for him already ago but no question we've seen from him we've seen that since the Erin Andrews snafus thing. You New Delhi after German IE. I think that's absolutely right I do think your true character. Shows. When. Win win stuff gets bad. And. EI get a few bad things happen. But do you. Now you've got to be able to handle it better and and I just don't think he can be one of these guys who continually spouts off and handles things poorly and then on apologize apologize apologize SPS now. You better. The better young Michael. Because for you to. Media alliance manner and get it passed a media lives manager media lives matter movement. It's like trying to may bring up trump he hates the media. And he's a good example because he's a guy who I mean it's like. Is is the media really unfair to triumph. Or is trump. I think not and I want to thank from the media they talk around them and I want all the time illustrated but I don't think he really understands. What. Why a the media's all over him if he does himself. In any blames the media I mean that's it's typical all. Believe. He. Ego maniac. Just the media boring BS and people see electorate you know but these guys are allowed to get away with it. In many cases because. They are you know they're powerful. Interesting our command next and what do we have here Mike it's not putted five or any it is only one left on this program and at that. Oh get into the NFL playoff picture we'll take a look at South Koreans defensive coordinator hire and pac twelve. In the bulls are coming up next hour on the fan.
