Pay its break here really appreciate you listening you're about to get some podcast excellence is presented by less Schwab tires doing the right thing since 1952. This is dirt and bridge in other news. Prime minister of Sweden visited Washington today and my tiny little loopholes what's the brand. Which endangered Johnson and Brendan spray. I don't know it's better are slightly rough and no I don't at all I didn't realize that doctor Boehner. I smaller a lot of pressure along with a lot of pizzas and that is a good dirt and spread beyond 1080 power party which you. It's been through it together. Yeah so soon there and I welcome back and the second hour here during spring on 1080 goes man I'll. Hockey petition update it is at 69 signature. Our goal all along wall in the last 45 seconds we decided five more were up to 74 people. I messed up talking about him it's 46 away from a hundred stop encouraging this guy may get a hundred Paula Weinstein. We ought to give due here any second now minority against it a little bit so let's now let's bring on our buddy DM moraine blazers. Edge dot com is where you can find his great work on to Wear that DD. Meringue M a mobile hotline thanks for joining the show again is always good to talk some blazers and wanna start with the big commerce Asian in the rose city and nationally even on ESPN a the CJ McCollum and Damian Miller to. Dynamic. What do you make of it as of late with the Wacey jays played. And you know it I could preface this with this thing and I've had the pitchforks and torches against me should they want on these guys. I love Bolton. Both hold on what they bring offensively incredible. But. That dynamic between he the guy looks defensively is just not something that can be discreet in what you have a legitimate all of the need defensive player of the year lock down defender playing behind those guys and there's three or four those guys in the entire week. And Machida the Portland meals to secure one of those guys who is next to none so. It because things were no matter how good these guys are playing you know that's a constantly wonder I mean that the Dallas team that they end up beating by water and that's missing what. For four guys in a night in that you might throws completely corporate crime but they're limited report guys. And Turks closer to forty then any of the other guys in the roster closer to thirty. Taken down a one point game. Domesticated they just can't stop anybody. And that's something that they did that people need to kind of take take a step back take a look at. No matter how good these guys are sensibly the weight of the league is trending with these dynamic players literally every position. If you have that now leak on the defensive end. It doesn't matter how good your offensively if you can't stop anybody. So so I take it that your pro trading one of the two which will would you wanna part with. This is word count or took it if you if you take a look at what they've both boring. While they overlap and held there in leaked scores. They're very different now they go all out. Gave him a little or beyond being a dynamic playmaker and he's arguably not arguably the you'd be better play maker of the Treo. Good difference between them and how they get buckets and they okayed it and freak but he did hit it in the mid range game get the ramp. But if you that's just a basketball sense of things that tidbit. That comes along with this is being lowered into this French. You can't trade him. They did he dump market of the branding the way dividends and kind of built around him. Portland doesn't get one of these guys are often mediocre looking at looking at the auto blazers. In the past forty years fifty years it's Bill Walton. Clyde Drexler Brandon Roy ending it. I mean those of the that the cornerstone players of this franchise. Is in the you know its existence. So. From aid basketball in a business and he didn't have been that guy in the being the odd man out which is kinda strange because I think. When it does happen people org I'll look at it like it James Harden trade Oklahoma City. And that. Harden more efficient and away because his colleague at the free throw line then suddenly like Russell Westbrook. And sign. Up mogul where I could definitely have. No no good guys. That get between these guys is crazy. But you wanna keep them both but at the same time. I mean between you guys how many defensive players are gooder now that you compare what these guys to make war. Yeah that that's always the tough part what I would do hammering blazers edge dot com and I think I was a betting mean erupted everything I was gonna say it was. You know I'm kind of the opposite though like when you have players like demons CJ and to a point I think to the same eyes I also think they're kind of different in their and their own unique ways. I almost look at it as say. I do I deal we are coming from defensively and they're not good neither one of whom are good defenders dame is though is the worst of the two. Don't we need to put some on this though on Neil O'Shea and what he can potentially try to do. This offseason to see what he compare before we get to a conclusion of let's break it up already this is only their second full season together. They're averages are ridiculous CJ is averaging 26 the last two months. I look at this roster I say I think there are holes. I wanna wait I don't wanna trade to potential basically the Wear of the way they're playing all star players. Yeah you know it got on and said he would not aggressively like yes yes very much. Whipple shake. Heated you're gonna go this route it in you'd incident beaming all your guy. You owe it to them you owe to the franchise you only to a band to put a deep concern of mine did. Big bind them a true defensive minded gate and that's why when I hear people talk about making a deal for Maryland's a well there was still want to be great will get what you're not getting a slump like that without giving a big eject a literally held us gonna work so the U you have to go out a while lower. But when you put a dialect no one's the well up there it could be you can distill it better than anybody but Portland currently has no position. But you're you're giving up quite a bit offensively people want you know give me some calling this or that perk for certain issues he may have. Offensively or defensively but. He's much more of a two way player than a moment and I was the well by the same kind do you view that certainly need that when you've got. Dynamic guy like game featured in the other thing is here so much is put on demons PGA that. Adding that third offensive option is something that completely new to look at in there at the small forward position means the most. Or ready made position for that is that you need a two way guy there you need that three in the guy. What suicide because being treated in a position your ball a little undersized. That can help out and that's where if a guy like I mean war ark looked discovers that. I can in fact get a jumper consistently then you know I think they'll find their way back in the starting lineup sooner rather than later. Yeah yes originality Evan Turner dribble then NASCAR wanted to go from now I mean Evan Turner we found out yesterday. Maybe a five to six weeks to hand injury to go through surgery on that stuff. But it will first double its rotation do you think bush it looked like over that stretch and what does that do I mean I'm somebody who is and and unfortunately rooting for losses at this point in the season and isn't that the best course forward I don't want the AC to get swept by golden state of the seven seed. He gets up by San Antonio Sodini without an internal they compiled enough losses to get a good draft pick. Yes and it honestly it. Did the basketball gods are smiling Daniel O'Shea right now with the way I look at ghost. They did this gives you need to take a sub optimal treatment. Based on the expectation coming in a year and say hey you know what. Turner's band got in golf for a while you can pin a couple lot longer. They will do little nicked up right now you know what what what it looked like it could gain in Willits sprained ankle suddenly just split and it got worse. Putin had to sit eight or nine games. You know he needed a pile up a couple of law to juggle the schedule coming up it's very very very easy to do so. And they'll be themselves sarcastic it is. I am right there with view in that I've I've always been one where. You can't be stuck in mediocrity you have to switch here neighbors that we can't just look on the fly GAAP. This war as the rotation goes the guy that you know we were debating this tonight. You know comes to comes in was gonna be heartless or crab. Might bogus for artworks. Not the guy I think. That they'll end up going with I know that stock has gone with crab in the past but. I think they need a little bit of that punch off the bench still. And heartless is the guy that defensively gives you a little bit more than than crab well if he's going to be out there with. Millard and the columns so you get a little bit more sides a little bit more versatility from camp. But yeah it it'll it'll really weird situation that BM right now. To win this can this go this could be that that weird moment where they they can galvanize and come together and realize when they shouldn't win. So I mean at this point who really knows. I can get shot here on this one as quick as possible this is knocked Jimmy's question answered quickly what's been the most disappointing part of displays a team this year. All talk. Lack of effort. That's that's that's what it ultimately all of the amount would pop up that offensive issues in this data the other Al Willard and often on military is best seasons career my columns and in the passing in his career. I mean that would go to guys playing that way they should be at least 500 Jeanne. Silk could mean it'd come down to effort mean when you start off first quarters given up 35 plus point that's. That's an effort bank. Wouldn't you just break down and isolation all time offense that's an effort thanks so yet. To me to lack of Africans especially concerning where this team came from last year. All right there we go good stuff stammering blazers edge dot com you must follow on Twitter act deem meringue a we'll talk to down the road men love talking blaze with you would love to do it again when we have a little more time. Our material goods stuffed in moraine says that lack effort is the most disappointing part disappointing part of the blazers and you don't want to necessarily but it sounds like he's come all for breaking up the dual game and CJ well look I agree on numbers on the black everything that's some we've hammered all season long and I think it is very frustrating from blazer fans and at least you believe that they get these big contracts and that's the reason. Why maybe the effort isn't what we saw last year and an and I tended to get the truth is somewhere in the middle of what he's saying about Damon CJ that is not gonna work into pieces around him. And then going with your point well it's only been a year and a half that they fully been the starting lineup at some point it will get to that realization of Candace thing win canvassing succeed on the bigger picture but those two. But right now I do believe it's a little too soon to make that decision but let's talk about their game against the Celtics tonight on TNT there's there's a stat about Isiah Thomas that I wanna bring to your attention and just how incredible it is that he is the player that he is and also. But the hell with odds have been that there have been two great Isiah thomas' to make their way in the NBA we'll talk about that next on 1080 the fan the. Fans always. The one you all. Yeah.

Art let's talk about the blazers this stuff there from gamma ray I wish we had more time we're up against the clock we'll get him on next time with more time I guarantee. But we retirement the blazers and they play the Celtics not who they beat on their route road trip and we are in Vegas couple weeks back yeah. And there's an interesting. Story line aside from the blazers. Have you watched Isiah Thomas. He the year he's having is unbelievable he's averaging 29 points this year almost 29 point eight he is point two points away from scored thirty a ball game. He gives the Celtics 29 points almost 36. And a half assists. No not go to rebounds but he's 59 wind and some folks are even with the year he's amnesia and 46% from the floor 91% from the free Carolina people are arguing he deserves to be in the MVP conversation I can't disagree with them then the numbers back it all up and then you out on top of that the Celtics this year 33 in nineteen Kevin Pelton who we really respect works for ESPN. On insider stuff. He has an article I've read quite yet but it I think it's basically comparing the best season Isiah Thomas had with the pistons. Vs this Isaiah Thomas for the Celtics and get this that this one kind of blew my mind this came from our buddy bing Gulliver. Isiah Thomas in 2011. Was the number sixty pitch he was a mr. irrelevant yet. Since that time he has already scored more career points. In the last player taken in every other NBA draft since 1989. Combined. Death elements that that is insane it is funny on a day when he's coming to town and and I side Derrick Williams got a ten day contract with they would cast earlier earlier this afternoon. In it and it isn't just prime examples of guys he was funny you look at you watch him in college Derrick Williams big strong physical small forward runs the floor welcome play defense using RI that guys can have a bright future in the NBA. And then Isiah Thomas was a ton of fun to watch it at Washington but just what this guy he's and ending so small. You just don't see it work out the NB ATV wasn't that dynamic double player washes a great college player. But wasn't deserving Ambien a top driver top ten pick and now Erie is our many years into his career scoring basically thirty points a game and seven it says it really does tell yet. That sometimes you your predictions can. Illustrate the only handled or the only thing that I thought he had a chance to stay in the league for as long as he has. I thought it was is handle coming from college to the emea and we can shoot okay need be fine in that regard but I thought okay this handles gonna be all right. He can last if it's not he's going to be out super quick now I I've policy Tom since high school to play in Tacoma. And he was a dominant force he had a key having you know two week stretch where he averaged. Fifty points per game in high school the guy was a beast goes to Washington obviously besides just who he was that year. That he won the pactel tournament on the the step back shot they test Johnson called. To get to the MBA and do what he's done it fives and nine it really has been a treat to watch and I know a lot of you might like him cause he's a husky now I did him Brenner I was a ski ES. Yeah I I don't think that applies is saying I am bass all the way doesn't football Null. Doesn't when you get to the Indiana did there's a serious respect factor and Aaron and Ryan brings about believe he has scored ten points per game in the fourth quarter as well. Yeah he's been an insane for them is one of them is one of the leading scorers in the fourth quarter in the NBA is a guy they run their offense through sodomy a lot of fun to watch and and I didn't and the Celtics are held basketball team this year. You know engines and there's a blazers tonight till I just I'm Tracy but they look like I mean this will be the first game now. Officially without Evan Turner and the news came out he's gonna be out five to six weeks and I'm hoping you know you never root for injuries you never root for got to go down I'm hoping that this turns out to be a positive for them when when you just look at them. Wade is standing stack up right now Carolina Western Conference and is in the NBA in general other half game out of the eight CD got a couple of the teams that are in the mix but. There like a 45 game swing away from having one of the five worst records in the NBA they are pretty damn close like it did teams that are probably out of their reach a Brooklyn nine and 44 Phillies eighteen and 34. The suns are sixteen and 37 in the lakers are eighteen and 37 so those four teams in terms of just their crack Venus are probably out of reach for the blazers even if this thing really tanks. But you just like Sacramento Dallas New Orleans Minnesota. Orlando the knicks the box the heat the horn like all those teams are right there within a couple of games of the blazes that same record. And it's if there was a time for Evan Turner to go down it was now he was start to find his role they restarted play. A little bit better basketball if you will always him in the starting line up. They got the win in Dallas the other night but. I'm hoping that this ends up being a positive in the long run they end up missing out on the eighth seed because Evan Turner is gonna miss about a month and a half as they win tonight NB Boston again during the eight CNET twenties who were in thirty but the the Kosovo was a huge shocker on the road trip lemonade and they were playing like crap name on the road Boston segmented to seed in the east right now took them overtime and overtime and one. How many players can you think of it Isiah thomas'. Stature. That we're really is good as he has. I don't think this is a blip by the way I'm just easier to stay unless an injury Apple's a track record for him now is a couple years it's not like this is a law doubt anymore. I've set for are basically since they got rid of them all the game dating get rid of them in Sacramento but I feel like they should done everything possible yet. So to stay in Sacramento. He's been then I his entire series averaged double digits in points now I had three years threes averaged over twenty points per game he's almost a twenty point for games or do you look at his rookie stats they're just has been out of the gate is lowered saunas yeah eleven and a half point yeah innings four point one assists. Sakic years thirteen point nine. Four assists. Third year twining in six then goes to Phoenix averages fifteen that was a weird situation is in three guards Branyan played 46 games and he flourished in Boston because Boston needed somebody like him a point guard that can handle the rock taken over in score offense because they have lacked in that depart. What I think they're the crazy part about him scoring 29 almost thirty points for game is that most of it doesn't come from the three point line. Let with a guy like an ideology there's a guide as five foot nine put up thirty a ball game in the NBA. My first instinct would be he's a staff Corey kind of guy but he's probably we make him for five threes a game that's so Iraq's at 1518 points. It's the foul line a couple times but he's only averaging about three made threes per game easily shoot 38%. From final line the three point line which I miss not terrible. But does not the main focus of this game and think that just makes it that much more impressive that he's able to score inside he's able to get to the foul line. They're willing here in years ago allowed you were just icing in like he's incredible players stop looking at the size no doubt I I. Don't look at size with every player just when you're 59 that's another level of size you kind of like does it translate 'cause you really 59. At least yet that some guys don't really stand 59 kind of like dirt. But you don't. He really is legit 59 begins and he gives a little man's and hope somebody saying his defense of stats are terrible or so or little urgency Jim the columns sometimes that's that's the beauty Boston they have other players a step up and play defense. Avery Bradley who by the way is how great night great defender he is one as the best perimeter defenders in the entire NBA Jae Crowder is a really good defender. They're pretty good collectively they're not bad in the paint. They just have a group effort on defense where you can make up for and Isiah Thomas out as Al Horford guided the blazer blazer fans wanted to go after in the offseason also well Dumont paint and let the guys at five foot nine maybe. I I would be willing to base probably closer to 5758. Usually guys are that small little round the up and try to make you look a little more respectable not to five nines of respectable in the NBA. But I'm not gonna bashing IDs is five when he scored thirty points in the NBA when here's a beauty guys because as those that are keeps taxing and he's literally the worst defense starter in the league here's the beauty. His team has great defenders. Nobody talks about it's the argument that if you get Damon CJ held. It's not a sore thumb stick announced that the elephant in the room because he got help around him pay. What's on second. 'cause dirt it's really cast ballots on second god not this we'll talk about that next the first show with a sports update us. Lack. This is Curtis current Zahn Kennedy's yeah. They log back in hot Thursdays and all others Fred stated that fans. And the people what they demand Joseph what is our intern buried in doing today it's a very Joyce area is really floor getting married very looks for Iranian students doing some things yeah hey I remember when I intern at I did and they'd probably exactly what is are you observes gives him arts and crafts or something maybe he can like do some. I observed some radio gold and I was sit by and at one Jason's life guard about well seven years ago. While still obtaining my lazy this year I've always had a big beef with our intern program you have a huge beef with our in terms what we've turned out really good in turns there's ones it across me right now I start another example and you'll do with a three on the mice and they started are fine interns will we've had a lot in turn 68 proper wasn't answered back in the M. Great number of interns. I just have up like dairy. Berry should be active right now due in some than learning something and he's not learn and -- is not doing any good he's now learned and I think you want -- -- -- almost always a bit but let's talk and act at a peak now he'll learning radio goal Greta and I hate -- and he's very very crucial -- guy a guy got three minutes here I got -- TCB my three minutes and then I'm back in his duty regularly give Barry a project but think of a project from there what in terms are firefight trailed five wishing we wish we give Barry the intern to do well I have the project of calling Lenny Wilkens once in my internship days yet that didn't go well I call them nineteen times and the twentieth time that I called living will can see into the phone and goes or you can call this more. And make you any I'm Brennaman in turn they want you on the show willingness to believe not to call me just -- -- Lenny Wilkens. That's not what Lenny Wilkens sounds like at all by the way. The theater of the mind of a can actually say and that makes the story that though he shouted at me and I we weren't happy with Lenny Wilkens not a fan of brain's break I what do you want what we want our intern Mary did you hear over the next hour and 23 minutes and an eerie text and MB Iran I don't is entered very 21 years old. Now he's not Tony's not when he won his ninth when he when he has more facial hair is close garrison you should be embarrassment at. Say let us know 55305 let's also update people on. Our petition to bring in HR departments up to 81 signatures are really gaining steam. Aren't honest in twenty minutes we've gained one it's tennis it's been instead the growth accumulations signatures in sport. Throughout the course the show us of you wanna find a petition goes sign it we tweeted that actor and Sprague. I that's refundable also texted to you if you wanted to 5530581. Or nineteen away from marble 100. In every get a hundred the NHL's coming important if we don't get on her which I don't think we will I'm deleting that posed a meeting between it never existed S rice making me take it down after the show we don't get hundreds or don't go assignment and I think it's youth. You run out of people the most tonight weekdays at four at some point in the final hour by the way I do promise we will read the comments on there because you're like asked to leave a comment when you sign a petition and why your voting and a lot of morally funny so luckily the comical sign a petition people you cannot the better to do today and looked agent on that. Doug of course the Joseph okay it's time for me to lose my mind a little bit. Another rule changes apparently being tested out for Major League Baseball. And now we've finally gone too far they finally pushed me over the limit they push me over the line. According to Yahoo! sports' Jeff pass in the Major League Baseball is going to start a program in the Arizona Fall League any gold coast league. To test it out and see if it'll work for the majors. And that program or that rule change. Is starting extra innings with a runner on second base tenth inning top of the tenth runner on second. First batter up god and god forbid. Dad dad will get people start watching the game finally the people who have been holding out not wanting to watch baseball all these years get what they've demanded when he game goes extra long and extra innings. A run we'll start on second base and can I wanna ask you serious question here. This is what's new and nowhere is that good or I know this is that's not buddy buddy take this is not being old. I know or you're gonna come come in on this one I got an idea okay none of scorer in basketball to make the hoops bigger. And that. 220 point tonight let's do it they'll be condescending look. You're Arab you're very staunch supporter of the like peacefully like it stopped caring about other people what's wrong with baseball caring about other people. They wanna make more money. The computers and other sports leagues and pay more money gap well how in anyway shape performance is gonna make them more money more excitement more eyeballs more right is that it's much more revenue no not at all you just made all of those up there's no direct correlation that more people are gonna buy tickets because god forbid the game reaches the tenth inning guy I'll start on second base and tell me that's not exciting though you only TV owners and its ten. Start the secondary you put on second day zillow Robinson can nose starts up on second top of the time be kidding me. I don't see what's so wrong with so it's still an experiment on a league that nobody knows about like it thinks it's not gonna happen. It's gonna start Arizona Fall League in the Gulf Coast League so no it's not gonna make all the way to Major League Baseball but Joseph Torre. Who is just turning his back on everything he knows about the game says let's do it looks like. Not fun to watch when you go to your whole pitching staff want to bring in utility infielder as a pitcher. As much as it's nice to talk about being at an eighteen inning game it takes time. So we're gonna change how the tenth inning is played because we don't wanna game to make it to eighteen innings you know over the history of baseball what percentage gains go to extra innings. All extra innings in general just extra innings in general 5% nine. 9% 9% gains go to X shrinks like this bracket is speed came up if you're in the ten vending. Aboard have been watching for four hours what's another half hour when I read this at first on Yahoo! Sports I cracked up because I thought to myself. This is kinda stupid for the simple reason of the continues point 818 inning game onsite yeah like that's a big crisis in baseball you know we played Jimmy eighteen inning games and I'm thinking. Outside of the giants nets' playoff game I can't think of another one in my life at the problem I had I can't think of another one now. There's just two games ago that on the entire year what would you would you be opposed if they did this and Mike if they got a fourteen when you are a number of body be opposed to it what I what four. More excitement more ticket revenue from your advertising and more eyeballs I love and you're going down that no most people by the tie via the fourteenth inning turned the baseball game off it's kinda like to believe by the fourteenth inning that its kind in a sense dirt it's a lot like college football's overtime rule. Get the ball to 25 yard line defense and simply doesn't get any help. And hope to guide you can outscored the other team albeit old somebody doing field goal. Hoya in this sense gotta like that's overtime rules like hey you got a ground sect can't they score you get a chance stillness nailed it it's not willingly I don't know just like that if the NFL points you score a touchdown the other team doesn't stand or your point oh yeah I see where they're going to now all right balls anymore to get sells more revenue either keeps saying that under that I mean baseball or against we will we talked about on the baseball show last night and yeah we were we were none too happy about here in about the contest was. If he was he had definitely like I dissembling on out you know whether sport has to go through this and that's not true for balls doing it with a kick off. Kick that's a man someone doesn't know what it catches. That's a different cell. What did it does still don't know with all the big things of the Dana there's not a huge overhauling why this is an old Roy will change but the strikes on Libyan overhauling rule change basketball changed everything defensively and the weighted the allow you to defend another team that's true that's more to stop you someone argued as a pre fundamental change because how can I get that's what kills this generation a -- pushed well back then you sure you could have your hand on a guy. I'll I'll grant you that there are those about points I just ages I get to bully we do one of these segments like every six months like you let here's a rule change to get more people to watch baseball. Starting the tenth inning with a runner on second base I would like to know is there anybody out there willing to admit on the text line. Would this speech you interest in baseball or not. We you're awakening get a get an alert on your phone from when he game goes the tenth that's when you'll turn it on time all is not board the Astros a mariners are in the tenth somebody's gonna be a second damning I don't watch the and his ball game I can't wait dear Aaron Goldsmith call on that. You bought a mole. Single up then all you're slowing LA I'm not mad right our land. A lot of people saying what is this rec league softball. Simply he's said she advanced notice that the ASEAN and Janice in I could get a hit discussed stand out there's some it's a pretty soon curve balls will be allowed because they're too hard hit. I. God dear lord there's an idea how more eyeballs more ticket sales more revenue here's the idea here's an idea three balls and walked two strikes as an out there you go hot out speed things up I like it will it lead you I want OK you're one pitch that's all you get every app that one pitch you don't get it you're done well this speeded up. If that goes past thirteen innings we put the ball on the tee you designate your best home run hitter and whoever can hit the furthest off the tee if it wins the game. It was a stop tiptoeing around it just load the bases dessert the tenth do I am all for that I can begin at five. Let's do it let's get a walk off Grand Slam every time I just give the road team an automatic five runs to start the tenth heading home demons if you get match at home team gets the same opportunities dirty studied them if he edited the upper deck accounts for four. Ordered by the way a lot of people are telling us that. In turn Barry should get our petition out there on the street sense of Hitler's an inter marry should grab the clipboard go hit the streets could signatures for the damage I think it would give beat up because people with the keys act he's being an activist for gay rights or animal rights are now asking for hockey so we want hockey and we want hockey and Portland Danica gets us signatures Barry go out single stand outside one of the strip joints very end just hold your petition. Drunk sports fan is for sure to strip club right now oh that's yeah that's the top BC hockey. They fight right pros do it. All right we're on a hundred. Really twelve Lloyd. So me and it's been a baseball idea there to start at the Arizona Fall League and became Kyra that what was the empathy to cactus league he I do you not in the Gulf Coast League my apologies the heirs are falling in the Gulf Coast League able go to the tenth inning and put a runner on second base because. Catch the fever he lets Steve penalty kicks. Before that. But Faris are throwing things let's move on someone claims for all and didn't get a rowdy old and someone else is losing their mind crunch times next on Tenet in the fan pressure is on us. What's different from. That's that's just executed crunch time English prelim heat. When you win this event is phenomenal woman of news that's the lowest on the wall it's. French done much a look at the hottest topics in sports Brian do you mind crunch could. Is 995 per month. So why would you ever pay more for a gym membership has great pleasure grudge directed back Frenchman has always and I found blood so why would you ever pay more for gym membership I was out of the glorious SE gains yesterday. That's ago. Good stuff kid stuff crunch that is good stuff meant. Hey let's get right in this so one of the hotter issues of the week in sports has been to roll once not getting into the hall of fame. Dan's bouncer all of them towns right or dock and FL hall of Famer himself shirt if you really don't like damn proud now from problem with the info outside of a loved and felt the ins and outs came out he was a lot of women may not love and he came out and talked to mid the mid day. 180 in Nashville. About the voting process in about two Rolen is getting into the hall of fame and here's what's Dan found had to say. I think he did receive a fair valuation of his career both pros and cons. But obviously. It ripping the hall of fame in the process. It was good is that going to do. I just don't understand that it. I didn't understand a lot of things he did in his career they get numbers are very worthy bit again on the other side of it you know his his actions on and off the field. On the sideline. I in the locker room and the fact that they played for so many teams. It was such a great player the question to me is always comes back Q if you're so great why would those teams get rid of them yeah I think we all know the answers. Iran that we all know the answers. He said that drones got a fair shake OK we have a really long cut from Chris Russo mad dog reserve. We are so we're we're big fans of mad dog Russo on the show we are huge fans on a high you're not. We play that I want to point this out because this is this is a funny narrative overall along TO that keeps being thrown out it was our last year so this year. And again you know I respect for outs but they're wrong on this stuff they're flat out wrong anybody that says this is for lack Al in the correct and there's facts there's facts to back it up in this like I got these this morning so he played eight years with the niners. He had an opt out clause with two years remaining on his contract. Then niners were going to keep him gladly. For two more years remember this is 0405 this yeah when they saw this was bottom of the barrel miners they were gladly going to continue to pay him on the contract that they had signed him he had an opt out. He opted out dating get rid of him for attitude they didn't wanna get rid of what that everybody's calling it a locker room cancer. There's one already incorrect the Eagles Eagles the Eagles he was initially traded the ravens but because paperwork got completely screwed up the union filed a grievance. He got out of that ravens deal he chose to go to the Eagles they gave my twelve million dollar signing bonus to go to the Eagles. When he went there he agreed to a seven year 42 million dollar contract. He wanted to play within nabbed a great year yes it went to the Super Bowl yes I'll just short into the patriot and he died he had given enough production and done enough in big games to prove that he was worth a little more money. So we did what a lot of athletes do now. He used to leverage now how he went about using sets leverage was not the right way. Hence the sit ups in the driveway. But let's not act like that they kicked him out the Eagles wanted to keep them on their team wanted to keep them on that roster Indy Reid's been very vocal against TO. He wanted TO back. But TO wanted to use leverage get money OK so he's out of Philly where does he go next he goes to Dallas. Dallas signed him to a three year deal he gives them a tighter production what does Dallas do. All that's right dating get rid of me either they gave him a contract extension. You see where I'm going with this next three teams now. That we continue to say. Well why do you want your level you played for so let AJ they gave him contract extensions they wanted him to stay longer he leveraged for money he did what businessman. Do in pro sports don't gimme buffalo don't give me since he that was late in his career he was out of his prime just like Jerry or icy jump from the Broncos to the C docs from the raiders don't give me that BS. Let's look at the three prime years Eddie or not three prime your three greetings yet in his prime years. They all wanted him and gave them extensions yet said. Have vowed says the idea got a good shake we tend to disagree with that was the other voting goes next year Chris I rented by Frenchman has always not 95 a month why would you ever pay more. For a gym membership find out more about restrain our gotta crunch are coming lustig until the final our top story of the day we'll update you on the NHL changed dot org petition may god bring me image out of Portland.
