Yeah. Times for an oil change. Did you feel Lou we've got you covered we've also got you covered when it comes to oil changes thanks depends oil synthetic motor oil getting back on the road and it's different. Jiffy lube leave worry behind. We're winning his legs is in the house is in NBA analysts Tim Lego was brought you by straight talk while us. Our best phones dust networks no contracts or boss it's evident how great are you good. Can't be better real playoffs are almost your dad or did I hear the slog is no no no I'm just to put Florida's season feels like you. It's been tackle issues from the scene is trying to find a new way to set the same thing every single day you know. It won't listen welcome to four hours of radio that every matter. Back let's get it back. XML won't be the only new professional globally to launch over the next couple years again that's a huge supposition that the national actually detects your right at any time because someone's beat him to the punch. The alliance of American football the name you hate. Don't like it I don't like it will be spun out it does say a awful. And I don't think that's the cup but that's what all AFL. Awful now I don't think that's what you want associate with the lead but anyway it was unveiled at a press coverage Tuesday in New York. It involves less tight than when Vince McMahon made his public his attempt to re launch the X have offered 20/20 maybe kind of sort of but they haven't a specific date and have a TV partner and you know you're doing it real. Look for credibility sustainability is going to be key thing no doubt about it and the credibility comes from Dick Ebersol son Charlie starting this up and bringing in people who. You're gonna know the names are gonna say okay may be this Elise who go get off the ground it can't be credible and sustainable Bill Polian. Who was involved in this from the player side Troy Apollo law. From a guiding some of the from the team side executive JK McKay Hines Ward Justin talk. Involved in this is while some of the money. One of the people involved in the money Carter Jared Allen former Minnesota Vikings over the super guys who were in the league guys you know who know football now that's one thing so we had the headline kind of written. How did they fill the story ended and it will come down to my son rob earlier the little things the day to day things. That will sustain misleading going to make and then people wanna watchable equality be like. More than anything else that's all a matter gift will they watch it because the ex FL took off like a rocket for one week. And then the next week number was cut in half then was cut after that matter was that bad and then it was gone. So we'll see if if that the eyeballs in their for the sustainability of the awful the alliance of American football. Well I find this curious. USA basketball in the NBA and Tuesday announced new rules and standards birds youth basketball competitions. They're designed to enhance the development of players and create a positive environment from all boys and girls. Among the eight the changes an eight foot basket for ages 78 and I'd put basket for 9/11 I like those but then there's this. No three pointers per anybody ages seven to eleven. Yeah you know what I and I'll be very interested to hear too like gurus can join us in a second here palm. What he thinks about this I know he he had coached a unit doesn't involve a Ewing missed but I do. I remember coach and my kids now as you football coach tonight and I told the Paris before said the main thing I'm worried about here. It wasn't winning it was fun in fundamentals right teach in the game. Learn how to play the game to whatever level we're gonna go to. Knowing the fundamentals is going to help in this is what this is going to do it's good him and our soared in early may be the man that don't know I don't know if that's gonna happen but. You're gonna learn the more the fundamentals of the game and not just launched threes which kind of takes away from that Dolan that older or nay you or whatever are go through that. But I like it when you're concentrating on a young crowd and you're concentrating on the fundamentals of the game legs what do you think about that. I think it's phenomenal I I I think may be. This three point shot maybe I would just cut that off at about 910 you start to get eleven years old and I have it bass while camper every summer. In a couple hundred kids and there's a lot of 101112 year old kids get put off by some of those kids can get a they're pretty easily. I understand with the trying to accomplish and so I'm all for it because you do need to make kids understand. The overall object is for the ball to go in right and when kids are fall in love with launching jump shots or particularly if you don't have. A coach that knows how to rein that in and I think that's another big problem but that's hard to address here which is. Handling the selfish player right and that's something I think that they coaches need to go take seminars on. Understand what that does zero quality game so I think what they're trying to do is just make them understand there's an efficiency to the game as well. Odd and mute launching jump shots at 910 years old from twenty feet. Third you're goal in less than 10% of the time and I think that's what they're trying to address but eleven years starting in that gray area as low of eleven year old really good players that. The other trying to join a corporate attitude and overall you kind of like the good the way they're going about their earlier what it would help and I love lowering the basket I'm a big believer in that because you can teach proper mechanics Tony nine year old by lowering the basket. Because they can maintain proper form without putting a ball that by the raised right and altering their body mechanics just to get it there now. You know and I'm a doc I've been a proponent this forever I lower the baskets are my basketball camp for kids that age to give them. A proper chance also love the fact that to make sure that the proper sized ball is used for kids that age their hands are too small to use a 29 point five ball you got to go 275. We disseminate girls 25. 91011 and then you go up to a regular regulation size boys ball for twelve year old boy makes a lot of sense because it it helps mechanics and like you said. Fundamentals improve at a younger issue its interest in this. Reminds me a lot of like the Little League controversy when should a pitcher throw occur. Don't terms or how you'd know hurting beyond that's sort of what you're alluding to a trying to hoist that ball up there. But the three point shot as we've seen in the tournament as we see in the NBA is such a big part of the game. I mean if you can rein it in a little bit and make that Brimelow lore. Wouldn't that I mean that is a fundamental part of the game now that it's ever been. It is and I think actually that's wise is being addressed is because now when young kids are watching basketball. You know watching NBA game the seventy to 83 point shots taken last night the blazers took five in the first three minutes of the game right OK you watch a college game to see how important it is. I think they're worried about kids now only thinking about the three point shot. 78910 years old and they don't have the physical strength really to make that shot at a high rate even though they still wanna take it. I think that's really why there are dressing because it is so prevalent when you get older let's learn the fundamentals first let's understand the concept of trying to get a better shot. And then when you're a little bit older than in the three point shot will be there the rest of your life. But let's not rush it right and I think that's why kids are seen it now and it's it's such a huge part of the game there and I two more threes than twos or take. They wanna jump to that kids instead of what they be going inside you know I think out of my doubts absolutely what makes hardens are great not only a step back three but the mid range jumper in the old little floater that dust out that Tony was talking mostly got to have the full compliment Lechler for commissioner what you look for coach let go for president of all basketball operations. Well it took a long time but it finally happened more than twenty years after band mate partner Paul McCartney received the same honor. Ringo Starr has been knighted. Fans can now call the former Beatles drummer sir Ringo or sir Richard are richer to be precise because it's full name is Richard start. Yet here is that me sir sir Richard. George Harrison and John Lennon remain among the on Knight did and they're gonna stay that way thanks to the current rules for knighthood which state you have to be alive. To accept the honor so those two are going to be out. Both Harrison and Lenin were more qualified. To be knighted alongside their band mates during our lifetime but. The crown didn't start indicting pop stars. Until 1995 so they. Missed out there and have. They weren't there weren't. Actually there there there you go. I like sir Rangel way out of this record sir Richard sounds like the guy is that the guy from the last crusade bigs are renowned you chose poorly as Mets are highlights or Ringo much give us a ring. It's doing now three or search stark. Would also be bill is over for I know yeah I don't let you big deals and no honestly not I I can't. In that empted to a viewer on the downward is they're they'll look I know I don't I don't take away it would not win this clearly such a consensus go in the other direction now. I'll acknowledge I must be missing something out but no those are really I would destroyed wanted to bring this up. Yeah well like I stopped because that well let's let's keep it going on there I thought well why don't you like don't you what is wrong with both good. While they did was chase every bag whatever. And remove I canceled sir Ringo gradually grabs a tip of the cap and we we we we night I think we ninety serves or Ringo well done all right sir Timothy. On you you have expressed expressed a desire to Oregon coach yes you would like to be a coach a slew. Then you see the physical politics on a guy like Tyler you sure you wanna do the effect at you sure you wanna go down this road. I'm pretty sure they feel regret it once they get into a nine I do you know what it comes down to for me is I like there's a part of me that thinks that's kind of what I was born to do. I always salt the game like your coach when I've played it helped me become. On the player that I became. And I missed the competition man I there's just nothing I can do in my life to replicate. A scoreboard being on wins and losses. You know I'm I'm one of those people that leaves after every sporting that people should be crying you know the loser should be offset I can't get that what I get now is talking about what other people. Are doing but that that part of it that's why Tuesday for as long as I did. Impacting that age two in particular and and have an impact in young man's lies is. Very important to me the academic part of it as well some college coaching seem like a natural. If it's something new you wanna keepers are look Penny Hardaway I mean court's high school any coaching a viewers why don't you courts to a UN food and now the head coach of Memphis yet and any AAU circuit what that allowed me to do was really maintain really strong recruiting ties you know and see that level player right now. Lot of rookies in the league a lot of guys that are freshman one and done type players it'll be in a summer job these are guys that I worked with at. Camps all summer for the last two Summers I'm so getting hands on experience with those guys getting a chance to form relationships with their age you coaches are high school coaches. I think it's a natural I know that's with Penny Hardaway felt the same way. You miss the competition you feel like you can have an impact on you know as long as you get the players if you Philly you can have the impact of coaching them molding them. And you see a very clear vision of how you want to program run. Okay so with all that being said by the way that's exactly what Herman Edwards and when he when he went back he said look I missed I missed that the grass and in my feet. I guess the west enormous federal carousel so I totally get that if that's what you want happen I wish nothing but the best for you there. But you know we see that we see the whole it's taken on. Hi Lou in this situation. Annual book based he says he wants to be back in a week. Actually that's really optimistic we're talking about a guy who's complaining about chest pains and then date McManaman reporting he's been coughing up blood. Those sound like significant issues that have to be addressed that may take more than just seven days say OK you're good to go back. Yeah I think you know in that kind of situation almost feel like you know. Why put a timeframe on it you know appear if you're tied Lou you know I know he wants to feel the pressure getting back to his team at the most important time of the year. To have time with them before you start to post season but. When you've got those kind of symptoms it should just be you know what man just go get yourself right however long that takes. And then you know rejoin the team at some point if your physically and. Holidays merry music player to your wanna be there for your team you wanna look like your Palin and your team you know that mentality no there's no question it that's what it it's it comes from is he's a competitor areas of the former professional athlete. But at the same time you know. Most importantly is when you come back you wanna stay back so that's what I think you know trial Lou needs to address and I know it's a highly. Stressful job both at that police Julianne in the pros. But I think every guy doing it will tell you the reward outweighs that. And that's why that's why you do it right that's why you put your body through things as an athlete the reward. Is all you're thinking about in the things about it that you love that's which are focused on. And you know a lot of times guys think they're invincible they'll get through anything because that's what they've always done their entire life I guys on this level. NBA analyst Tim Largo with a soon to be the coach of anything you want soup because will be great at it. It seems like we talked about this the last couple of days with with a clip with the cavaliers. It's a never ending story with them this year it started with payless bring in Derrick Rose and Dwyane Wade now didn't really work will blow that up. And then well we'll get Isiah Thomas back and we'll make well that didn't work so they trade him out they bring in the new for the trade deadline. Little bit of meshing going on there. And Kevin Love was out and I got Kevin it seems like the entire 82 game schedule has been can we find some sort of rotation that will work for us on a consistent level. Is it possible during these last few games they can figure that part out and be good enough to go back to where they've always been our bronze teams have been always to leave the back to the finals. It is definitely possible trial Lou actually allude to this on a few weeks we said this is four seasons in one for us because of all oils like twelve changes yet and look. Here's what it comes down to for me when I look at the rest of the east. With the exception of Toronto. Who has wire to wire been very consistent in how good they have banned. Every other team has that are incomplete whether it's injuries whether it's inconsistency. And so I look at the cavs and I go you know at the end of the day don't they still have the only LeBron James at the risk. So you you do still hold out hope even though their defense has been consistently poor all year. You still hold out hope. Are you worried about the they couldn't beat Boston in a second round series like they're not going to be able to beat the wizards of the pacers sixers. All these teams are complete and none of them by the way have really done much of note in the playoffs. As they're currently constructed the casual look at edits they way to say it were the team has been three straight finals again it's been a rough year and we always stressed out. We made wholesale changes the trade deadline at our head coach is sick and we got a ton of injuries and Kevin Love just got back in all of that at the still they look at the rest of the conference and they go. Everybody else has issues to. Except Toronto days they've been the one constant all season long. Their bench is better than ever they're shooting threes and a modern pace make it three more game than they have in the last four years so. That's another component the firepower that they didn't have before said they look legit. Mean I said to someone last night. This is the first time I can say it won't shock me. If the finals are played north of the border. Perhaps the series played the way that they change where they play the game they absolutely have an L a goes look at the numbers last night they've been in the bottom ten in the league. Four straight years in me in in three point makes and Temps. Not this year to make it eleven plus a game there and a top five in the league. That's not what they were duty to DeMar DeRozan who never talk has added that to his game and then their bench has been absolutely fantastic doing Casey finally get the credit he deserves. Big break KC fan they are legit and right now is the playoffs started tomorrow to me they're the favorite in the east. I may be deceiving you know that can't help but they have met him through it at this point but as as everybody sees increasing in use I agree. They're playing a different kind of ball right now as far as the west. Nobody worries about Golden State and their talent. But from I always talk about from a football. Injury side of the lingering injury that could affect viewed on the wrote. We're about what Golden State obviously steps ankle you have the ribs of KD yet the film I believe clay content. Yet the little warriors are very migraine by I think he's going to be okay you're caught the neither so helmet contusion exactly so what we're gonna do Tulkarm karma. Is that yeah Hollywood on us so regularly about the wailing lower appendage and commentary on the game was was pretty also visited somewhere Stephen Adams is left without an out on the radio Rogers said he got a little wars are thought it was just fantastic job but the other injuries. The from a lingering effect is how worried are you going to school state team in the playoffs and going through injury for. Not hugely because other than staffs ankle because your staff your ankle in the same sentence you go I just like Tyree with his knee because that's what he had the original injury. The sale is knees bothering him you don't like to hear that if the same bipartisan problems in the past I'm not too concerned. Golden State Boston in the east are in this unique position they're the only two teams that are currently in the playoffs that. Arc I'm gonna be caught from behind right and there are not catching the team in front of them locked into so all they are worried about now. Fresh legs gay guys healthy and let's hit the reset button as you ready for the playoffs and a five game series in the first round if if that is more than enough to get your rhythm back. On I'm not as I'm not concerned about injuries being a big problem in. Did the biggest challenge for them is the Houston Rockets. And and how difficult that team is to stop. Speaking of the rockets would get to them and a second but again as to what goes through those let's not forget to your point about the raptors changed when they play our per our researcher bread but the size and size knowledge of the raptors are shooting 50% more threes and they were a year ago and and the raptors have 7 eastern on ESPN NE SPN radio. Huge game which will make it was a look at how these two teams may shape of the beast. But back to the west yes I've Golden State's going to be healthy but they will not have home court advantage and they they're they're down four games now to the rockets. We finally believe that with game seven if it's there in Houston Rockets as they're presently constructed. Have a chance to. No big deal obviously during that discussion my money would be how much are they my money Nabil Golden State still yes. And the reason is when you get into a seven game series I think the defense of versatility of Golden State in figuring out how to defend basically. One thing which is James Harden iso and that middle of the floor high ball screen that's all Houston runs. And so Golden State has I think personnel they can mix it up they can play single covers will be more and your only worry about one area the floor honestly. And figuring out how to adjust to that whereas with a Golden State. Everything they do is predicated on the ball moving around and so it's a little bit more random and unpredictable. And harder I think to lock in and take things away because of the way they're players move the way they move the ball through the air and it ends up in the hands of no one of the greatest shooters the league has ever seen typically so I think it's it's going to be harder for Houston. The slow them down and a seven game series and vice Versa but. What I'd be totally stunned if Houston Rockets were an MB finals no of course not now with the year that they've had mr. stork what they're doing offensive. What would it take in your mind when when these two teams let's assume they're gonna be where we all think they're going to be which is a Golden State Houston Western Conference finals. Assuming the that the warriors are all helping like everyone says are going be but I kinda baby they would meet the finals what has to be the difference in these two teams that would. Tippett for Houston has to be a series in which James Harden doesn't have any moments like he had a year ago against him out but can't have one of those and you can't have a a hiccup like that investors are typically the first two games to get him in your building but you can't have one of those. You know four for nineteen is in game two and give home court right doctor Golden State when you worked for all your long you'd have to win the first two games. To be able to win that series and I mean James Harden passed Peter and I look he's going to be MVP. And last night was pretty interesting because people sort of talk about Willard getting into the conversation. And I don't know who is who's gonna finish second to just six guys that I can say have a right to it. But Willard certainly a thirteen game winning streak price he's moved to that discussion James Hardy had a look at his eye last night at the start of that game as he's gone for fifteen and now. If I listened to get. Killer that would 42 only because he sat the first six minutes of the fourth. He had a killer instinct last night that he was going hat whoever was in front of him. And Mandy put on a show an unstoppable force right now controls the game like no other player in the league. I asked but he hostage do it again.

The facts of progressive jurist presenting a cell phone guests join us on the shell Pennzoil performance line but in studio. Ladies and gentlemen here eons. ESPN NFL insider Adam Schechter joins us in studio yemenis the straight talk. Brought you by straight talk wireless best phones those networks. No contracts and Adam let's start with the thing that wasn't yesterday now which was the pro neighbors daequan Barkley I wonder if the bill Penn State running back coaches. Purposely decided not to show to make your sequent didn't do anything because let's be honest. What was this possible gain thereby doing anything at the Brody. I mean he did everything in the car my meaning you do do the only thing you can do yesterday was maybe you're himself police talked about him doing everything that he can do with Tom and about him doing everything that he could do. At the college level totally rewrite what you wanted to you wanna see him jump you wanna see him shuttle you wanna see him do something at that point time means. Standing has solidified there's nothing more for him to do is going to be a top pick only question is whether used to. Or 544. Revenue number maybe for sake mum Barkley but. He has a treasure trove of highlights he's got generational talent there's no need for him to do anything like that and if and felt teams went. State college to go see some sura work out. On they had to know that they want to get baggage is. I didn't I didn't throw. I don't have the draft. An arsenal over my buttons I didn't know listen I was my flat following and I got I got caught up port. So don't. Train I talked about this the possibility of becoming a trend for guys like say and it really would be. Say one Barkley you wanna say a Bradley child who's considered a top pick him I'll make a Fitzpatrick accord Nelson quite doctors considered a topic. That guys like debt may start skipping things we already seemed born to come by and not doing everything we saw them more than a few guys Paul Hamm he's running the forty so. Do we think top players or four will be more selective. In their pro days in the com bijur when the go to team at a good price the Ohio State it's alarming going to airing at ten Santorum also noted had become my bench at Sidney Jones last year the walk with a number one quarter ever watch him towards Achilles back pedaling on us as a browser could dispute trying to stir. A sketch out if I'm not mistaken asked him to performs on the extra data. So what why would you do the worst the upside for the player being the whole idea for the player in this matter because there's there's competing ideologies here let's be honest about that. The players trying to increase its market value for the draft. The scouts and GMs a pro personnel guys trying to get as much information as they can't those things sometimes are at loggerheads with the NN and Alex can go to the bowl game conversation again rare. Guys like Christian McCaffrey and lender for an arm playing a bold by Jake but did permission tore his ACL yeah. Again if I were top talent and I Hillary to come out and my grades were. Establish in my standing it was entrenched. I wouldn't be doing anything more than that like why would you want to war after you do anything more to impress them so. To me a case like this the pro days. Our quarterback to throw fine no issue and Sam to Arnold than throat come on he's got his pro day today in. California Obama always was the rain there was. Again I think that be kind of cool. And he gave Cleveland Browns you wanna see Sam Arnold role in conditions like debt because that may be what his plan is common exactly that if they going to use no more pick on him so. To me those pro days. Certainties I wouldn't be in the world by doing either. So I'll let let's go to the pro game here and all we talked a bit this morning about Richard Sherman came out at his Prosser talked kind of defended doing his own content excel. Thoughts on him doing his contract and although BA trickle effect 82 other players or B two agent saying they've got to sell myself a little more to do what you're. I thirty Sydor very well he said that there are a lot of Asia's two great job for a lot of people that's right. That is actually right and there are certain people like Greg Sherman of Stanford degree. Who brutally who believe they know what they're doing and are confident in doing it on their own. You know I think in a case like this I think in ages. Well served and I think it maximizes. Applera attorneys but if the players any concerns he can go to were known and Richard Childress Smart enough. But to be of the hill that the deal has been questions. I don't resorted to photo we have breaking news note that hundred breaking news now I have the breaking news founder of you've got to be on your vote at we are ready with a brain knows trade now obviously I yeah what does that Texan would tell you what is it we wanna know right now what is the information your grocery list. Is it just make sure you get home before the snow had seven that. Elements here. You never know if you we have to be prepared for anything that would separate it could be an NBA trade knowing you. You have to be very. So charming again and I. I think before I totally got above target I think age is recommended but it's like in this business right most people use patience yes the occasional be able at the adult. No I'd I'd the mile and you'll want or did. And easy to want to and you felt good about it Geraldo got bush used. The trade maybe has done that enough to ever knew who I am I Smart enough to know how dumb I am. I that's that's the thing I'm not. I realize what I got I would take a look at a tax bracket but I always go AC PA guy help me out here you know I mean. Usually it in the majority gill who want him to. That that's regions is designed to do is to maximize. Persons earning capabilities and I think that's always the case but in this particular case Richard republic gave a much argue until he's not. People doing and is almost exact hour puts his money that is negotiating so we will do do your thing okay so. Out of chapter weather says we're gearing up for the draft wolf were actually a full week in Little League year now and the draft is what's on everybody's mind let's be honest we're in the league if we called the legal Tampa pretty much more hate that term both the bit the run up for the start of the were in the legal lying period right now where you have to really have. The ability to disseminate the information people are telling you and why they're giving you these misinformation in what's what's the motive behind it. So we know that the jets moved up from six from up from six to three. It took me assure themselves of getting a quarter they believe they think will be there one of the reasons they did that Adam was they made her the buffalo was trying to move. But let's be known as buffalo could still do that. If the giants wanted to put the second pick in play and they're now feeling buffalo. Like very guy may not be Demi they have to ones into twos they have the capital. To go ahead of the jets so really the jets assured themselves with nothing with this move of Buffalo's willing to go there do we think buffalo might be willing to go down that road. I think to get to number two the price to be exorbitant. And buffalo would have to go an awful lot to get to that particular spot and you're affiliate considers with the giants. You willing to go from number two. The number twelve drivers. There are some real blue chip prospects in this draft so your bypassing the chance to get 1 and am now I'm not telling them both look can't get there. Because it can and if it wants to everybody can. Do it launched but. That's a challenging proposition that is not a simple trade. To pull off one of the best things never are and and look go back when the Eagles trade up I believe they started at thirteen. And they went to number eight by treating it Maxwell Byron Maxwell and Kiko Alonso Miami don't thirteen gate and then. To go from eight to number oh. Was also difficult they traded a bevy of picks. To the Cleveland Browns to move up six spots. So that was when their eight the bills are number twelve right now and so their allotted. Challenging parts this I think makes it difficult it's gonna possibly get done what he's just. Twelve to chill. It's a wage jobs not me well it's had its steep jump and it happened so what are the rams scored to get gobbled would do and what they're thirteen or something or sixteen year old wade back there date they were way back there and they got it done in advance. And so again it can be done it's just not usually about right what are you would Q&A that point time the titans already had their quarterback. And they were looking to accumulate a lot of extra picks I guess you say the giants held liable still you know I mean you could say that so maybe they would be want to go back to twelve if they got. Say like I I would have to get the price is proud to think it would be minimal. Minimum 31 round picks who B ball the ball close ones this year. And the one next year well we will always saw Washington trade up to two for large Luther three number ones and number two. So I mean you do it's it is going to be called the individual and Washington was at six that your only course now what light I do not remember Washington was that because that was part of the road that the capital with the rain Ronaldinho and all kind of stuff but I think there are rescue research things. And I think they were I think Washington was at six. Now yeah I think there are six and went to two under what it stands out to Mecca be wrong so as. We're talking news about this league you may very soon be talking about news and another league as well. Coming out that Dodd did Dick Ebersol son Charlie. Along with the brought into the likes of Bill Polian involved. On this Hines Ward Troy Polamalu. Names that you all know would play football to start the alliance of American Football League which first and foremost I think you need to change the name. The acronym that's spells out awful awful AOL awful I had throughout the remote about the brand but a lot of other appropriate that the Redskins they go from six overall six six you do students in New York good and it got really good and just overall. And they traded. Almost take yeah a hefty price. Nature addresses in their first round pick six overall and second round picks in that year's draft right. And and yes of course trump picks in thirteen and fourteen right right right flopped first rounder gave up two more and a second rounder. Yes daddy gave gave up a lot of Walters is an editorial with a play it to go right off four spots yeah. Rats from sixty it's exactly about twelve to deal could be interest and could be interest. As has the start of the newly could be interesting Soviet alliance on the American football which again I think they need to change the name first and foremost but. Got credible claims he saw the headline is written with some big time names now Howell the story be filled in on this well listen the one thing. We see in a lot of these leaks coming golf and and maybe this rumble succeed it's got a lot of brain power there. I do think that there is the need. For some sort of developmental league for players and I know that's. Something that I don't know it. That's what they're doing a series of business venture is be very clear I would think NFL Europe was more of the but that met us the world league of American vote and it though Europe was a place where I thought a lot of offensive lineman divulge some quite relaxed developer Warner develop exactly and so completely totally dismissed that and we talk about. One of the issues decently today. It is the lack of quality offensive line play. It is the lack of offensive line depth special what comes from college these days as opposed Lotta the process of you wanna run yeah that's another issue about a letter went. The offensive line. Quality and depth struggle who does that impact quarterbacks. When the quarterbacks get hurt what happened TV ratings drop when TV ratings drop is his impact so. We can Trace his whole cycle of events T August back office of armaments industry there it always goes back to the offensive line hey. Somebody else they're trying to clear to me about can you stamper if you want me when we wanna win against on this because. It is the morass that they find themselves and constantly all products are way out of it I won't get into that. Winning at sports and of sports broadcasting means change things up just like like key to instance we just change it up I look. Renovated lobby the so contemporary even make Scola looked cool as it does that it totally updated fitness center that even has window feeling like a workout time ripped plus plenty of comfortable spaces to hang out yet this licking it though look definitely has a vibe a victory so you can just relax refresh and get ready for your next big meeting prepared when a business with or keep things in tweets. Both now and a few Doug Johns. The fight clo getters I've always told DJ chef to chef Adam chapters here with us. Adam they're trying again. To to get the control right they're gonna try and rework. Troy Vincent from the NFL front offices talking about this recently would mark mass give the Washington Post. Think slight movement little ball looks like war verse that is wells of the new catch rule says will acquire only the receiver have control the football. And that any slight movement on the football the receivers hands detected via replay would not result in an incompletion. You think they'll settle the BB perennial argument about the well. I think it amiga better I don't it'll ever be settled I think there that Wednesday has caught it. And that also means Jesse James caught it I against the at the patriot I think and Calvin Johnson caught it and Brian. They try to work their way backwards they try to simplify this they try to would you please. And say is this a catch was this a catch and Dez Bryant plays obviously whenever members Jesse James Blake is another. Alan Johnson's is another but there have been so many. Overtime that haven't haven't been catches and so I guess they're just trying to establish a baseline make it very simple. And try to make it such that on Monday morning we're not spending our time talking about where their guy did or didn't catch it and and frankly. We will see more catch. The one thing do we think that's not gonna change is there's going to be a delineation between what happens in the end zone what happens on the field. If that has to change there has to be some consistency there in my it has to be because if they're saying. Bidder according to rule or zero control of football. And any slight movement the end zone should be the same thing for both runners then as as a receiver because of you have control the ball was only a slight movement. Once the ball crossed the plane is or get rid of the surviving ground think that's out it's not the same on the field for a running back because if you dive over the end zone it's a touchdown if the ball breaks the Plame but if you're on the forty yard line you die for a 51 yards the water knocked out dot com I'm OK with that because that you a receiver and under this new rule and I think it was a game blaster between Arizona. And Seattle where a receiver or very comparable to two steps felt on the ball popped up they ruled it incomplete went to me clearly like Zach hurts in the Super Bowl. He had possession became runner. And then fell down on the ball boy that without being touched that should be a fumble. Right. So to me I think there should be one rule for the field of play and applied to both runners and receivers. And the ends on line should be the same for both teams with the ball breaks that plane and according to these new rules of the slight movement in your possession. Through playing. Touchdown or regular competition committee hello I've I've I'm waiting for the phone to rehear a surprisingly they have not called me on. I guess I'll ask the same question what about a runner on on fourth and one at the forty yard line if he dives over and the ball crosses what ordered him the first down marker. But then the ball thing gets knocked out it's a formal yeah thank you wanted to be. So you want different rules hot yet that's a bubble I think the end zones I think what ever the rule is for the goal luncheon apply equally to the receiver and the runner because you're right if a runner does this on fourth and one on the 35 yard line the ball comes out it's a fumble right but he does that at the goal line it's a touch so you're saying that's okay are you wanna I can't multiply OK I want I want to OK I want at the goal line the ruled to be the same four runner and receive our C -- and the feeling very different our Dallas missed and yeah right I mean I don't I think we can have a delineation in the field of play but at the goal line is the know all and all line of demarcation line right that all it takes is to get across that thing. It to be the same for runner in the same as a receiver should be much easier on my I'm very much for consistency yeah I and that's been a problem. And that would be kisses is I think no one knows. What the rules are a few runners receivers. Zone playing field what the deal is all real surviving the ground liners just become such a punchline is now that's gone again to me more than anything else was weak to sterling Shepperd against the Eagles. Crossing from right to left in the back of the end zone catches the ball in the end zone takes a re steps with possession of the ball in the end zone. And that is pushed and falls out of bounds ten yards outside the n.'s only ruled it an incomplete pass you know that's ridiculous that was a touchdown. Five different winds aren't there far dryly trying to figure that doesn't matter how how they produce new words and you had to graze Roy lever they were gonna do this just go to a bar thumbs up thumbs up now to look at. I would have been the best exactly right coming up Adam we appreciate your what was it like to negotiate with Richard Sherman will last the guy that did it 49ers GM John Lynch joins us next goal what can we go. Feisty little nugget for hearted and safety will make him entering.
