It's good tease her that there are so she had a lot to get to you in sync news I posed the question yesterday in the weakened we can further discuss it because they tried doing the the misses are out technique last night still didn't work. I think it's impossible. To wash your face in the sink without getting water everywhere I mean capable of doing. Traded just wash your face elsewhere who could. I'm but I don't want to we're actually supposed to push it just take an extra shower and wash outs that's the thing is I don't wanna take tens of Judy you wash your face. Twice really you do it in the shower in the morning you shower in the morning after you're done Morgan on and I do for a good bit sail on it you're one and done Beth. And if I don't shower. At that date certain from Terry phase it's not evident. Yeah and I can washed our entire body you're going to be dirty that's right a month two months admitted sometimes we don't shower. It just feels like an Irish our day there are times we don't believe what it's a non charity do you take like the dissing sure. Now now you know why don't you do like a top entails a lost cause sort of think it'll very often do them no showered and only if it's on the weekend and we don't have any plans generally had. No showers are nice. Like I agree with that bit. Well the hard days whereas you don't like you know it's not gonna happen today his doesn't occur until like thrown Manhattan so Richard you're not smell in Epoch. But he's still if you're doing now you still trying to take some precautions you still try to clean up a little bit. You put deodorant yeah. Course that's what it's for you're maybe some powdered downstairs may have some gold bond see what happens. All right guitar guys. So I think we're ready for not satisfied big sports news day. This. Institution. Maybe now we I'm. Very tough for any ending anytime minutes. Broad jump big pond opinions in this corner right. And the far fare quite. Right it's time for it on fire good father. Green ball. On primetime retires against you we have to get this program. We should refresh my laurel were brewing company and crafted beer local food and did you prove to have been all Portland's original family friendly group. Laura wood public housing for. You than you nineteen a girl. It is so what is the commercials they're just splashing water around they don't have to clean up. Don't look now look around with the shaggy dog wandered into your bathroom. The point when I think I've done it in a nice tidy fashion the you open your eyes you realize you haven't. Because the colossal man like a bullet China should parents I'm incapable of minutes. Maybe to Cindy Crawford because it shows looks so good. Vicki gave her it was the original not seen her she was fantastic Cano Minnesota football needs a coach yeah and apparently Euro coach is pissed about it. We need OGO jury. Kill yeah. He said he will not step foot on that campus again he's live it day to bias he plays is his guy was his guy they fired him because he stood up for his players a lot of people think that Minnesota's season this is the excuse to get rid of their guy. To go riding get. PJ left. Well there's another name in the mix. This guy flew up their detainees meeting with Minnesota officials and I think this would be a home run hire for a school like Minnesota. Plus miles definitely less apparently. In the mix as well so it's just it is he which waited big focus on Google thought that that less miles. Was gonna be a hotter name and a lot of the bigger name programs wanted to go so it. A little younger and maybe a little more often I might think you have less miles and Tubby Smith that there. Kind of forgot to be Smith is that they are vastly different while he's wasted no answer. In the land of Minnesota finally getting a lot of c'mon man's way a lot of really is trying to wash cloth true what's caused so much dealing with that's. A major piece of laundry. Hopeless when you when you use the washcloth how do you get each. I don't feel like you're really getting all the soap off if you're using the wash club I just feel like I'm spreading it around it definitely. I don't I don't believe that the it's the same sort of thing I need to get this the wives club is great for applying this so. But not rinsing it off right I'm not gonna be zest police clean by using a washcloth Randy Gregory suspended for at least a year by the NFL he of course plays the Dallas Cowboys he was suspended for the first fourteen games that came back for the last two and now it's a year and now he's out we will not play in the playoffs another violation the substance abuse policy were you watching him at all the last two games I didn't. Bruno I notice I did notice them. How is it you practiced one time in his city was bad precedent they want to put them on the field something tells me you'll never see him. He just can't keep them. Now he can't I think he's done. I Tom Cable these Seahawks offensive line coach formerly the head coach of the raiders. I he's interviewing interviewing for the head coaching vacancy with the miners. In a lot of CI fans are happy ending finally with that the yet there's been a weird relationship there between. Some of the coaches in Seattle and in nineteen even though they've had phenomenal success. Do you think Seattle and in the name that I wouldn't wanna lose Kate. I think he is that's going to say that's insane thing out for all of the the talk of a new kind of lived. The daredevil stuff I think he's the one coach did to me if I'm Seattle I would wanna lose I know their coaching staff has been. And they've come under some fire I think he's one of the best in the business and I think he's done wonders with that offensive line. He's that I guess that he's the guy in Seattle but I want to keep the chargers first interview to their head coaching vacancy was Mike Smith. Tampa Bay defensive coordinator and former head coach of the falcons. The Redskins fired their defensive coordinator and two other defensive coaches and Sean Payton fired five guys today. That that you one thing about a mess of an organization. Really is that they have it's over a third of their salary cap is. In New Orleans really wants to dig their way out of this. They should trade Sean Payton to a team that wants them and then go deal. Drew Brees and just rebuild that. OK Elaine daring them mess the false information. Tubby Smith had been fired already tied the university of Minnesota Golden Gophers basketball club you know. Richard B Tino Rick Pitino skid is their head coach now so I'm sure everything's running smoothly if there in the land of the Lantos waits. Yet you yams. And sure no road to pay no attention to appear let's not look in didn't think they have the big cheating scandal that there in Minnesota. But their best road team involved in a big scandal and Ted Smith. And Utley had a good academic fraud thing happening there Minnesota. Fearing Carrington of the ducks you know I him as a wide receiver who's pretty good he is back for his senior season said he talked to. Willie Taggart any convinced him he had unfinished business. So he'll be back on with Royce Freeman also Joseph makes in the running back for Oklahoma is headed to the NFL I think Kerry's industry. Bulls are to come back because I don't think either one nowadays particularly good year. And I would've been this is deceived where there NFL grades would have come out if they if they applied and got their reviews back. Our league Freeman's would have been very good at all and I think Kerry didn't really underperformed his talents here they both of those guys have a chance next year to really improve their stock by coming back to. According to agent wash your ASCII and his sources at vertical IV vertical or vertical whatever it is little dealers. The vertical. Atlanta vhawks are finalizing deal to send Kyle. Korver two to Cleveland Cavaliers city DJ as what Cleveland's giving up but adding eight. What a career what 4243%. Shooter from behind New York one of the best and indeed history you're already. What second best three point shooting team in the NBA knocked up that bad pick effort I number one seed. I did easy cavaliers dumb thing it sounds like it's going to be Mo Williams. And they very heavily protected first round pick for our fourth of basically they give up a ham sandwich. And added a deadbeat another three point threat to their roster fish that's a nice move for me. Blazers lakers tonight I'm Damian Miller is back where your Portland trailblazers if you are a very pedestrian. Fifteen and 22. They are ninth in the west only game out of the eight spot but six and a half out of the seventh. The lakers. Worse at thirteen and 25. So we will talk next to Jason quick of season in the B dot com the cup and all things trim listen what has gone wrong. In the first 37 gains of only 115 of them just like last year what's up. Separate that. We'll ask him that very question in that I married oppose it in that exact fat she is up with depth of that. So it's that can and am next is not by the five bride to buy Laura wood brewing company enjoy laurel woods award winning gold and mail in a can in six packs were better beer is sold. Dot blazers next in the college football playoff finale at 530. On the fan. Where Pfizer can sue god sanity though fair they were hearing from one. All of our listeners who had a stroke in June and you can't wait. They each hour. We were stopping at the idea daily showers. No I sure most days that I am working on a weekend when there's no work out he's not going anywhere. If you don't we can have just taken a random. Our loved leaders in and he says it's a topic that needs further exploration with the people. And he is not a non smelly person and he says showering every day is ludicrous and really. That's his take ongoing at least six out of seven days but yeah I wanna see there might be a weekend day. Where there there's a notion are but worked days a year Sharon sometimes elected two times in addition our look at my neck with a clean ninth. That's cranes smells so good all right so that's 518 here on the fan with Isaak in Suk the trailblazers. Are quite listless this year would that be a term that you use to describe India uninspired handles like it's instilled we're years that. It all started with the firing of Mike in them Mike and Mike thought I'd blame Christmas down first and foremost. But it isn't funny how a team can be so fun and exciting like they were last year and this year just a total. Dud but they still have time to turn around the orbit they have been playing a little bit better and we check in with the trailblazers every Thursday because of chasing quick. Told me exclusively last night on the set of talking ball in private. That he has never had more fun covering the Portland trailblazers. And this year mare. Click. They're what I said as he knew I was told the people the you told me last night the you've never had more fun covering the team then this year. Not exactly yeah they're good now ranked among my favorite I really it's been it's been really strange the whole year has just been really we're. Nick is not only is the record not where you want there's just no there's no Jews there's no enthusiasm there's no excitement even the Billie Jean. Is is dead at it's it's just strange so what so before we get to guard a gifted talking about may be thinking get this turned around. Let's put that. No I don't know. But I agreed to guys that think I can count maybe you retreat iron or the Rose Garden has been. Energized and got a mixture. You know big picture response go. And I only know because responsibly even happened yet this year but it only two or three times in the crowd like insinuate to stop their feet. Yeah I I don't know could you know everyone's gotten paid and their contentment that. I've said this for awhile they just don't seem to be playing with that with that it factor in that that deal and that that but I do you think. On that last road trip in the way that they're playing in this new defense which forces guys. He more active in view of rotate in scramble I have seen some of that joy returned to them I think. That's why I I think the truck we had been probably the most compelling about always good to. Yeah on the the joy is that they they do seem to be playing they look just more like last year's team but. You know why it's at 37 games this is interesting and I heard Mason pummeling last night and we are doing talk among he said he did say you know it did take some time with. Evan Turner. It to kind of tit to mix in a new guy and I wonder if we didn't underestimate. Because we just basically just glossed over that OK they add Evan Turner but it's only one guy the rest the teams intact they should nanny problem but do we underestimate may be. Just what it takes. To fit in just one new guy especially a veteran who's a pretty big personality. Who is a key guy in their rotation. I mean yes and no I picked they and I think a little bit of what makes him. I do without her communal MS an eighteen game was a big deal Tuesday and I think you're really affected. Their rotation because Greece Parker found himself a little bit more power forward could swap or. Back to your pointer with seven. It. It is maybe more than just our own and new addition because he handles the ball so much and so all prominent. I think he's not necessarily. A slow offense. I only did he not shoot three pointers. You know this offense is predicated on ball movement and clear movement and Evan needs to pound the ball odd kind of break his guys are so I think that's why are we seeing. The second unit B. This so stagnant sometimes they end. And that's why it must minuses so horrific and why the second unit has been routinely outscored. Its return. He kind of around patriot square or a software and I think that a lot of people identified that would you recited here you know it's a curious irony from the start and I think he's been OK I don't think you can or block a great. Yet that might beat that might be part of it. Isn't it one of those things through that everyone's looking for the one thing but isn't it true me whether it's that the you'd Evan Turner Mickey said it's part of that. This has to be a collection of things there's no way that there's one magic bullet that has Kostis. Yeah no question no question then you know chemistry and little things like that our our ball coal. Thank you in it's gonna go find being. That can make everything go I mean it it's really really delicate we've seen it. You know these guys are human and you see guys make more money or get more playing time market treated differently and vacuum. Burned some ten to go sideways or not. I don't know that's what has gone on here I don't get that sense. I haven't detected any jealousy you order. Griping about playing time. Matter fact you know on two guys who have a chance to gripe or Meyers Leonard and that it is may vote. At least said the right things but we seen this team that's very good at saying the right things and then go out and not exactly following through so. It's it's really a mystery and I think. The best thing complete defense to pin their hopes on right now as it does it seem to be turning. And the same time I think we're in this position at the beginning of December where. We thought they were turning they had to homeland went to Chicago got a big win at Chicago on a road. And you know Serena wrote things a certain look better and then they lost and level of. Now it now feels like he came and trust them yet it is not consistent but. But the defensive changes have been. Significant just explain to people who haven't been following there are wanna know more about what Terry Stotts and his staff of switched up defensively. Well traditionally they have been a very. Conservative. Defensive. Seeing more states. This could come pick and rolls which. As a lot of mismatches and they want you to shoot an open midrange jumper because stats say. The midrange jumpers lowest percentage shot in basketball so they want the big still laid back and does that open area so it'd been doing that horror. Most of this season. The only problem is when they implemented that they had Robin Lopez search could protect the ram now seems he's got open area and they just keep driving. And then it was a little resistance soccer Rehman. In teams or shouldn't you know 50%. Almost every night now he has changed that and on pick and roll he's sending the big manned mission pop it out to stop looked. The point guard their trapping out out of print parameter and making the point guard make a decision he had a pass or dribble back away from the rim. And it's resulting in. More turnovers it's resulting in shots later in the shot clock. Not protect the shots that he won the third particular shots that in order to beat the shot clock. And what it does is it engages everyone because when you tender trap out onto the parameter. There's an open guy when you have two guys covering one and there's an open guys so other people have to scramble and cover over that trap. And that has engaged everyone turned. You can't just sit and BI analyst at. CJ McCollum says he can't be lackadaisical and misty could subsist in the everyone has kind of again in movie. One end. Metallic organized chaos and that it has really worked for this team. Every player has served. They've like are in Greece are quite so I've been saying this all my life I think it's really pond I look at everyone out there there have been prime Mason calmly says hey this is what this. Our rosters well suited for we got about so long athletic. Smart players. In that old system was more predicated to. Blow big lumbering. Intensive type players and that is not this roster this rosters so much longer let the guys so. It's been refreshing to see that they're finally gathered there. This is so little depressing that it took 25 to thirty games for it to happen. Do you buy any of that and I know once saying that today they're better without him but that the defense uptake has also coincided with. One of your bigger defensive liabilities not being on the floor and Damian Miller. Yeah you know I think it's going to be interest seemed to see how bad. Translates to night and I expect him to do a lot of traffic and try to insulate is that are not particularly great Richard team you don't due to trapped in against teams. Like Golden State who are great three point shooters because. That opened person usually got the three point line you don't want to buy up open three quarters. But yes I mean the numbers. Last two seasons when team has sat out and the talk came. They're given up about seven point fewer. And we just on the floor that's a pretty big different. Offensive given up about art scoring about. The same. Number you're about seven point purity so. It's. That's what I'm really going to be key in on here this next week it tablet you can look we're the union in the air. And I I think it. Personally I haven't talked to them about this yet but I think this is putting him under the not the mag bag apart glass excuse me. I think he realizes oh while the defense has played better without me. And I think C. You're kind of some of the chatter he's very in tune to what fans are saying what writers are saying. And I think he has felt that kind of under slow poke a little while it's happening without Damian is Damian problem. And I think it'll be much more. Engaged on defense here in the coming days. Jason Blake cius and in W dot com deep into the blazers will be acquired online. Oh no question. There's no question. What are you know it takes two to tango. This processor is designed to make a trade because they have. So many big so many. You know kind of wing players. I I think you have to make your trade and I continue to rim protector in the worst way. Who would be most likely traded. I think probably heard David just because he's. A substantial amount contract. I would say Meyers Leonard I'm not sure what value is the other teams could be going to. I trade for him within our area and eleven million dollars a year. I think Ed Davis would help other people make around seventy million. That's the problem you know yet. I'd like Jason on line. Crew would have picked extreme value around the league could easily make it to wrap million if you need to bring yet the match salaries you have to bring back. Someone. Who's making 2.5 and Corey and I can get equal value so very tricky situation with with some of the players. He think did GM Breaux would oh eventually created CJ McCollum. The crew. Probably not I mean even. I've said this before there's no player that he loved more than ever call or did you eat. Really strong feeling about TJ in about what kind of player is but I would be to pick a lot for him to elect procedure. Brinkley will see tonight thanks brother. Get bigger thank. Instead it's. Cupcakes here. Look it's now it trying to put together some wins Jimmie there's a winnable games you should be the late December look back at December you know those brutal that was brutal but you got you know Cleveland you've got though thwarted C you've got Boston coming up he got Memphis she got Golden State again. Mean it's not like it's that did the Richard to stretch your words just get a layup after layup after layup not really feel like you need to win these next three I mean it's time to stop saying oh we're gonna give bettors playing time yeah I go now because you got the lakers who are I mean you should beat them twice yep and then the pistons. Her thirst they're under 500 right. RM there are arriving there right around now when these next creamy it's time has shot up by the way lakers pistons lakers yeah in so then it's Cleveland which probably not gonna wind but how. I don't mean Cleveland has come out here before and in the latest stinker well it has got that bomb Kyle Korver so they're probably gonna be where Shrek. Yet the pistons are sixteen and twelve when he sixteen and 21 ebony it's just been a weird year into did to cap an op you know just reading some text here. And down one of our listeners said. Liberal listeners of something a modern listeners said he was talking about his you know blazers lakers is still hot ticket fairly hot ticket. You know lakers suck but he says he's season to delay is a front row 300 level. Because I could mean and so my seats for ten dollars each tonight really in usually Laker to lakers to get some themselves the blazers. Still announced sellout but this is there so we it's just so he's not a lot of Jews in the city right now over the flu ask both not at all and I would say. NF partly due to their players like now I. But you look at what you. I just I would say there was so much excitement coming into the season and and so I I I just love the did think this city was ready to pop and I think a lot of that has to do not only have been a down year but because the expertise you were so high. Gets so much air and now it's all been let out of the blue and I just think it's has been a big Johnny Dowd and let's be honest. The team's not that much fun to launch Dundee did spend listless as a seven I would say to that the broadcaster weird. Because. There's no dared rice and I thought by now I get OK get uses feel is very weird size into it is it in I am not saying anything bad about those guys came in clever on the martyrs is still not easy just not comfortable yet and it still feels odd when I flip over to ball games from Washington on the I sit on the couch and watch it. It still feels like a watch it like it TNT kind of game you know it when you flip don't you. It just feels like neutral broadcasters and its its body doesn't feel like I'm listening to the blazers broadcast dare we say we want our homers back. Where each and my take on spam that that's my long tenure there and I think sometimes you forget how old. I don't comforting yet. A familiar voice can be. Bottom line this level is a pro no question there and the more I think still in good job it's just. This is weird for fans of other after so many years OK let's move on to college football Alabama Clemson on the stand Monday interesting interesting. Items your game and we'll talk about it coming up next here's Michael sports that are. Prime time where highs against duke on sanity though fans. College football wraps up on Monday we'll have aquarium in Alabama Clemson beef first ever college football championship game rematch. I would not have won in the BCS era. We not have won an evil alliance era for that. Very rarely do we get the two best teams that deflated me lots of times the number one. Number 1210. He's playing like an Emory team and it's hard to get as a true national champions. It is crazy to think that this sport only just came up with the idea to have a true title game in the ninety's. But it's true. This is also the first time since 2005. That the teams ranked number one and number two in the pre season poll. Both ended in the title game they wire to wire so it's an interesting match and I don't know how people feel about it being a rematch I I feel like a lot of people are OK with that. Because won that game was so exciting last year into these do you appear to be the two best teams. Yes I mean certainly after if you if you're gonna assume that they got it right with the four semi file themes and having some people with USC and and stayed early USC's record CI think Penn Station have been there the and that's I I agree with that intensity and pay no I stayed out I think hence they've proved it against USC noted our state and Ohio State got thumped by a by Clemson. But yet this is these the two best teams and and the fact and the fact that last year's game as you mentioned. That was one of the all time great championship games and it was a shame someone had to lose that was a great football game right down to the very end. Nimble even though it ended up a noticeable from the forties and it was like 4740. Something like that. 45404540. Remember how that went down well I remember the Abu. The onside kick which ended up kind of be in the Dallas the thing the turner in that and then no one could stop OJ Howard. Who was a little used tight end and all the sudden he became like this monster for Al Lewis Esther. 2421. But about ten minutes left Alabama kicked Phillips tied. And Saban tried the onside kick in he got it turned the moment and then they went 51 yards over the top Jay Howard they took the lead and held on 4540 but. Alabama scored 24 points in the fourth quarter yeah. They needed every bit of their power in their speed and players and give them everything make it handles and it all those things I think were okay with the rematch I don't think that there is gonna be fatigue with this one and a side Darren rebel tweet out saying that this could hit a record ticket price really so it's it's not like interest his his where are they there is Tampa yet their Raymond James down there and in Florida. And there they expect this to be a very hot ticket and I just think college football is okay with this I don't think there's fatigue you know that these are the two best teams and I'm excited for it and I do think Alabama is better than they were last year I don't think clintons and is on still gonna go to Alabama. But the best player on the field is going to be to Shawn Watson he was last year and that was almost enough appeal was that a Vince Young like performance. And I think he's gonna need to do that again in order for them to win. I just think Alabama's defense is so good. I think historically we're gonna look back on this as one of the great defense is of the modern era I just think that's too much the other X-Factor freak for me is. Alabama's run game which just wears you down we see it time and time again where you can hang with Alabama. But eventually the run game get Shia and then the defense doesn't allow you to do anything and Clemson you can run the ball on. Louisville ran the ball a lot of North Carolina State Florida State Pitt. You you have Virginia Tech ran I think for three or four touchdowns. You can run the ball long Virginia Tech and that's the part that scares me is that if if Alabama's defense can stifle them early on. Does Clemson have the ability in the debt to go four quarters and have their defense hold up. To a very staunch running game and unlike the Washington game Scarborough is it going to be getting. You know eight or nine carries in the first half you're gonna get a steady diet of Alabama running the full. LSU Derrick Henry ran for a 188 yup and three touchdowns here that fifty yard run. And Scarborough. I cannot. Is it weird how Alabama has a great running back every year that you don't really heroes until the end of the year. Well there cameos eyes McKinnon yeah but the year before that you're cannery was the break got star in the bowl game and it was like. Isn't. But they all look the same and we're like yeah we're really use him might score was the same thing with the Harris is been their bell cow. They've got this Scarborough can they're like yeah I'll wait and see Scarborough is gonna be better and then sure enough he shows up and no one can tackle to keep. Is that while he first of all he's tank yeah I mean he looks like a tank looks like we Garret blunt. Yeah number nine. I don't know it just seems like Alabama's running backs look like. The predator you ever you're like there there are bigger and faster yelled in dairy can read now this Scarborough kid gathering for Richardson look like incredible hold. Yeah Richardson when he played and then I don't know if you've paid attention but do you hurts who's their quarterback. You heard is not some little kid I guess I got I was up power lifter in high school they have to stop him from lifting weights. He looks more like Tim Tebow that he does the Mark Jackson. I bet I doesn't shy away from contact he's a beast back there running the football. Yeah. I wanna say Clemson. Will win but I just can't. Alabama's to get although that the Steve psyches and thing is interesting I know how much impact will that have. I think he could impact I feel like if Clinton's gonna win which is going to be one of those Vince Young type performances from. Shawn Watson and he's capable of doing yes he almost last year he ended it watching a game last year I had that thought when claims it was up. That word you did this Alabama's gonna give Vince Young. Then Alabama's the better team but they can't stop to Shawn Watson and a lot of B what did Shawn Watson shows up he has been really good this year. But it. There I don't know how much Clemson football you've seen but I've watched them a handful of times candidate member how it was like out where at what happened and then Afghanistan he and it kind of slept blocked their way through the season it's bin kind of and up and down year you know it's funny because they've only lost the one game which is that he was against kid but. There's times I'm watching him and adjust something has seemed off. But. Mean he is risen to the occasion in almost every game and has played well in their big games and again I guess did they scored 42 points they just gave up 43. Which again goes back to my. My fear for Clemson is and I know they've gobble where they've got some talent on defense but. I just clip isn't too he has to out score Alabama and I don't. Think that you're going to you're gonna out score a team. That has. A defense that's gonna go down as one of the best in college football history we'll have a three here on Monday on the fan and to fight thirty coming up next. Should we talk we can do Chris Berman a talker sperm you want to look crisper and ESPN's paying him. They're paying him to shut up picnic SE will no longer be the face of NFL which average. My dream. There's lots talk about a 546 on the fan. It's where Isaac can sue god insanity goes to the people are wondering because Kyle Korver got traded to the cavaliers. And the cavs now according to Brian would worsen and lower their payroll. By adding how Korver but they are giving up the first round pick soda cans are treating their 2019. First round pick to the hawks as part of the former deal I think Mike Dunleavy. Is gone back to Atlanta as well but the blazers in a separate deal. And people are asking why they would do this. They have. So member in Anderson bears out deal. With the lid that involve the blazers. Cleveland's. Gave their 20171. Round pick to Portland as part of that deal. Well the blazers are giving that back to Cleveland's. In exchange for their first round pick in 2018. And the reason they're doing that is because you cannot per league rule Cleveland can't. Trade first round picks in consecutive draft can do it two years in Europe so they've traded a 2019. Panic. Is part of the core deal they have to draft in 2018 so they get that pick back in the blazers. Now get the cavs 2017. Crystal clear first trumpet. Yes so it is so good to be the thirtieth pick anyways and it all right so instead of of getting their two dozen 18% taking on to their 2017. There all Mary. GM showed chop them. Cilic now. So when it's. Sort of 2000 eco cornering Cleveland's gonna work out just fine and it's all worth it for Cleveland to basically give up Mo Williams and and swap in some picks and move all. We were a Chris Berman is. Leading PSP no hostility has been part. This finest works sounds like it that whomever the original fort was that they were they were trying to force him out. And that did they were just gonna settle on taking a reduced role but in reality. They didn't really want Chris Berman to be doing much at ESPN anymore you Eleanor line I don't know. Well. From what I understand Chris Berman loves being Chris Berman act well I read the book. Was Jon Miller there wrote it. Is that the history of ESP that was the big bug killer and it was a really answer Steve but some of the stuff in there was born the one of the things they talked about in the book was. His ESP and was really conscious to not create stars because of Chris Berman. And you know when they add that their run ins with key though remaining in Dan Patrick and ESPN's whole thing was let's not create another star because then we have to deal with them and all that stem from. Chris Berman was their first real big saarc. And Chris Hermann Chris Berman was a swing in you know what and third round at ESPN and they hated it but they felt like they couldn't do anything about it. Mr. gray YouTube clips of him yelling at people that just seems like off the series is seems like a peach. Bet he. He's stepping down from his NFL. Studio duties yeah he's been on that show for well he's been hosting NFL stuff for 31 years says that today and a quote Chris Berman will not be retiring instead he will assume a new role. Quote unquote at ES Pia which is crazy I mean. They're paying him to and to not to go way he will no blogger ready I had final Sunday countdown. Yeah which whatever and he's not gonna do the NFL draft and he's no longer doing the home rendered. The fat so and they're okay. I'm by the way should it. At the next arrest degrees somewhere she just slipped that in. Just wants to is to see how that goes down I don't know in my AM. In my dean. In my age being in church. When I say. Is there really some major impact from Chris Berman. I mean is is this guy like. I know he was good talented I remember a month sports that are love that I loved his his sash stick with. Nicknames and studied the Schwab is good do you do predictions but last seen in I mean did he have some sort of mega impact on the on the yeah I actually do you are thinking mind. What defend Chris Berman and this pains me to do so because I think he's a bloated carcass. And I kind of think he's terrible viewed but. Chris Berman. As much as anyone change the way sports is cup. Chris Berman brought. An attitude in a personality that covering sports that I don't think existed nationally. Without him. And I think he helped usher in ESPN LV ESPN. Is what it is without Chris Berman so yes I do think he had a very big impact. Early on unfortunately Chris Berman knows that and won't shut up about it. Which again just drives me crazy but I I do think that he is a guy that lefty really big footprint on the way sports is covered. I think all that stuff from Dan Patrick to Olbermann to Stuart Scott to Kenny name. I don't think any of that goes down without Chris Berman. Kind of blowing up the stereotypical stuff he. A way that it's worth discovered her mind. I made by what you're son but I doubt it I have to think about it says the Burma will continue to host ESP n.'s NFL primetime highlights show.
