Speaker:

Um, let's get into it brother.

Speaker:

Let's get into it.

Speaker:

What is it?

Speaker:

June 14th.

Speaker:

Almost close to Juneteenth.

Speaker:

Uh, yep.

Speaker:

That that's another show for another, for another week.

Speaker:

We'll probably talk about that next week for sure.

Speaker:

Um, yes sir.

Speaker:

Lot of things going on.

Speaker:

We always like to start with the social impact story and, you know,

Speaker:

I make the, the, the statement about Juneteenth and this just could be

Speaker:

something along those lines, right?

Speaker:

Just again, uh, recognition, um, uh, acceptance, um, just

Speaker:

all kinds of things go going on.

Speaker:

Right?

Speaker:

So we we've had this conversation on team, no sleep before about the transgender

Speaker:

athletes, uh, competing or wanting to compete with a transgender athlete starts

Speaker:

off as a man is now a woman who still, who now wants to, to compete with the women.

Speaker:

Does that make sense?

Speaker:

Mm-hmm did I say that right?

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

You said it right.

Speaker:

Louisiana's coming out and they are now the 18th state to enact

Speaker:

a transgender athlete ban.

Speaker:

Uh, it could have died in the Louisiana legislature if the governor had enacted

Speaker:

and said, you know what, no, this ain't happen, but he didn't let that happen.

Speaker:

Yep.

Speaker:

So that that's telling it and of itself.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

Let's talk about this and, and what your thoughts are on tell and

Speaker:

everyone in, in the audience as well.

Speaker:

Again, we we've had this conversation about unfair advantage about, uh, maybe

Speaker:

there needs to be separate leagues, separate, uh, uh, categories for

Speaker:

folks that are, that are identified as transgender and things of that nature.

Speaker:

But this is telling right now we, up to 18, we, we had a decent number of

Speaker:

states that are saying mm-hmm . You can't, you, can't just, uh, you can't

Speaker:

just decide now that you wanna be on this side of the field as well and

Speaker:

compete with, with the women because you, you, you now identify as a woman.

Speaker:

So talk to me about your thoughts on this.

Speaker:

Yeah, I mean, I don't agree with banning.

Speaker:

Banning is not that's, that's, that's a strong, a strong notion.

Speaker:

I believe they should be able to create lane for transgenders to compete in

Speaker:

mm-hmm agree with unfair advantage, um, of you, you know, you know, you

Speaker:

have unfair advantage if you, you know, especially if you're a competing

Speaker:

you, your body and you a woman, or you identify a woman now you, because now

Speaker:

you have a physical advantage, you know, somewhat of a physical advantage, you

Speaker:

know, just because of the structure of the body and, and muscle tone.

Speaker:

So I, I, I'm not sure how, I don't know if this is the right thing to

Speaker:

do, but I know there's something that needs to be thought about.

Speaker:

And now NCAA, and I think, I think the NCAA needs to

Speaker:

start working in high school.

Speaker:

Sports needs to start working.

Speaker:

With their local government to figure out, you know, how are they going to do this?

Speaker:

Because obviously it's a big enough audience now of transgenders that

Speaker:

are starting to compete in sports.

Speaker:

So now it's, now's time to start to create different lanes and also explain it.

Speaker:

I mean, I think, um, you know, they're just saying, Hey,

Speaker:

we're not doing transgenders.

Speaker:

I think they need explain it and explain the reason and why they're doing the

Speaker:

band and why, why it's, you know, they feel it's unfair and kinda start to

Speaker:

have that dialogue in that conversation.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I don't think they're having that conversation.

Speaker:

I just think people are really, you know, jumping the gun.

Speaker:

I, me personally, I feel that it's I do right here, Mon Allen, I

Speaker:

think it's unfair for transgender to compete against that sex.

Speaker:

Um, but that's my lens, right?

Speaker:

I'm looking through my lens.

Speaker:

I'm not looking their lens and I'm not looking through somebody else's lens.

Speaker:

I'm just seeing it from my point of view.

Speaker:

And we've always said we would someone to come on the show to

Speaker:

kinda explain their lens and talk about how they feel about it.

Speaker:

Um, if they oppose that right to, to kind give us some conversation around.

Speaker:

Uh, but again, I think band is strong.

Speaker:

I think they just need to come to the table and figure out a different means

Speaker:

for them to have the ability to compete.

Speaker:

Cause I would hate for a young person just because of their, um, sexual

Speaker:

orientation preference, if they wanna change that or the physical

Speaker:

change that, that from playing sports doesn't make any sense to me.

Speaker:

I don't think that's right either.

Speaker:

That's not the right conversation they have either.

Speaker:

I think they need to find another lane for them to be able to compete, uh, against

Speaker:

people that are, you know, against people that are similar or where they do not

Speaker:

have that physical advantage in competing in the sport cause of the gender change.

Speaker:

Gotcha.

Speaker:

Gotcha.

Speaker:

It's kinda, you know, uh, I recently had a very similar conversation with some

Speaker:

of my extended family, a about folks who identify as transgender and things

Speaker:

of that nature and you're you're right.

Speaker:

You know, it, this, this topic needs to be continually to be discussed.

Speaker:

This is where we talk about those kinds of things, where we have

Speaker:

those awkward conversations.

Speaker:

So if anyone out there listening, watching.

Speaker:

Whatever the case may be.

Speaker:

If you are someone or, you know, someone please, uh, get them in touch.

Speaker:

And we'd like to have kind of a, a, a more, a more focused conversation

Speaker:

with you about this particular topic.

Speaker:

I, I agree with you on a statement that I think this is, uh, the word

Speaker:

ban is, is, is, is tough, right?

Speaker:

That's, that's, that's a, that's a harsh word.

Speaker:

There's no, there's no joke around that.

Speaker:

And that's, that seems like forever, forever, forever, forever.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

And it's funny, you know, they got the fairness woman sports act.

Speaker:

Um, yeah, I would really love to out who wrote that and what

Speaker:

perspective they were writing it from.

Speaker:

You know what I mean?

Speaker:

Um, I, I wanted that and, and I think that's, what's kind of led led to the

Speaker:

band band of them competing against women.

Speaker:

And like I said, I agree with that, but it should be, yeah.

Speaker:

We're, we're gonna, you competing against other women, but we're going

Speaker:

to working towards the creative lane for you guys to compete.

Speaker:

Know, or you not, you guys, you people to compete, sorry, I'm being

Speaker:

politically incorrect with my speech.

Speaker:

Sorry about that.

Speaker:

Learn.

Speaker:

We all trying learn able compete.

Speaker:

Doesn't they're in this article when there's discuss conversations that are

Speaker:

open those conversations up, this is all about, Hey, you know, you can't do it.

Speaker:

So I, I, like you said, I think the verbiage is just wrong.

Speaker:

Band is wrong.

Speaker:

Mm-hmm um, in my opinion, and, and it was, it was again, probably.

Speaker:

Drafted written down in the vacuum by folks who didn't do exactly what

Speaker:

we just Nu just now said, yeah, let's reach out and have this conversation.

Speaker:

But for folks who, who aren't reading this, or for folks who

Speaker:

are gonna be listening in this bill is to become law on August.

Speaker:

The first like Montel, uh, stated it's called the fairness in women's sports act.

Speaker:

And it requires that schools designate intercollegiate and inter Scholastic

Speaker:

athlete, uh, athletic teams, according to the biological sex of their team

Speaker:

members, it defines biological sex as a sex listed on a person's birth

Speaker:

certificate at the time of their birth.

Speaker:

So again, if you progress coming to your own, coming to the, the state that

Speaker:

you, you, you identify as something different than what you were born

Speaker:

and, and you now want to be recognized as you know, to each your own.

Speaker:

But if you wanna be recognized as, as, as something else and

Speaker:

you identify as something else.

Speaker:

and you want to play sports in, uh, 18 states.

Speaker:

Yep.

Speaker:

Right now it's not gonna happen.

Speaker:

And again, I think this was created in vacuum.

Speaker:

It, it wasn't really had that, that dialogue.

Speaker:

There were no committees of, of like-minded folks talking about it.

Speaker:

So this, this needs to be talked about a little bit more and we, we

Speaker:

need to get some, some subject matter experts around to talk about this, this

Speaker:

remind, this, this, this right here, like you said, created in the vacuum.

Speaker:

This reminds me of bitter, bitter parent, or bitter some, a

Speaker:

bitter parent writing this act.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

You know, someone that either they either, they see their daughter possibly

Speaker:

compete, competing against a transgender or a transgender, you know, can

Speaker:

probably, you know, uh, compete against them either college or high school

Speaker:

or the various sports or something.

Speaker:

And they wanna nip it into before, before it even happens.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

You know, I think this is some, this is similar to kinda like,

Speaker:

you know, they're trying to.

Speaker:

They just not having the conversations.

Speaker:

And I think this isn't back in 1960s, right.

Speaker:

Where they would just implement bands and laws.

Speaker:

When I having discussions, I think now that we're here in the 2000 twenties,

Speaker:

this things needs to be discussed and, and tabled for conversation.

Speaker:

And yes, I do believe, no, they shouldn't be able to compete against women, but

Speaker:

you can't isolate them out either.

Speaker:

You know what I mean?

Speaker:

Where at the end of the day, we're human beings, regardless what you identify

Speaker:

with, which can't isolate them either.

Speaker:

So what is the medium?

Speaker:

And what's the answer.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

They're not providing the answer.

Speaker:

They're providing just a closure of a door and not having anything with it.

Speaker:

And I'm surprised that 18 states jumped on it without having that conversation.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Without, without being breaking news.

Speaker:

You, without it being at the top of, uh, the making new news

Speaker:

networks, just CNNs the foxes who whomever is taking us to talk about.

Speaker:

It remembers

Speaker:

school.

Speaker:

You.

Speaker:

You know, mm-hmm and you're a manager, you compete all the way and

Speaker:

then you get to college and then you wanna change like the purple swimmer.

Speaker:

Think about this.

Speaker:

True.

Speaker:

So these, these ages, what, what else are we talking about

Speaker:

from a competition perspective?

Speaker:

We talking about every four years, we talking about the Olympics, right?

Speaker:

We talk about the, these phenomenal athletes who now want, who, you

Speaker:

know, had, who grew up wanting to go out and represent their country

Speaker:

at, and now 18 states are saying, listen, you, you can't play over here.

Speaker:

You need to play somewhere else, but, and you've grown up all of

Speaker:

your life, wanting to go to Beijing, Vancouver, wherever the Olympics are.

Speaker:

And those, those hopes and dreams are now starting to get shattered for, for,

Speaker:

well, the thing, the thing is the, the thing is you have to compromise yourself.

Speaker:

Now, if you, if you're, if you're having iden, if you're having that identity

Speaker:

crisis where you wanna change it to a woman, you have to compromise yourself.

Speaker:

If you wanna still do the sports you love, right.

Speaker:

That's basically what it's saying, because if I'm a, I mean, let's look,

Speaker:

let's look, Bruce Jenner Jenner.

Speaker:

Wouldn't he wouldnt himself.

Speaker:

Jenn.

Speaker:

Jenn.

Speaker:

So he wouldn't Jenner is in alignment being opposed to transgender

Speaker:

athletes competing with female.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

So he, that I, I within I'm a conversation as well.

Speaker:

Hey, uh, Jim, I just, I just approved your comment.

Speaker:

I think YouTube thought it was something crazy.

Speaker:

So I just approved.

Speaker:

I'm not sure why it hasn't popped up on the screen, but I got you,

Speaker:

but I'm not, I'm not blocking me.

Speaker:

Oh yeah, yeah.

Speaker:

But, but I'm saying it's, it's it's you have to, you have to kinda,

Speaker:

you're gonna be in a conflict now.

Speaker:

I think the people that are in that, in that lane of being transgender.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

If you wanna play sports.

Speaker:

You have to compromise who you really wanna become or who you

Speaker:

wanna identify with in order to continue to play your sport.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

And compete at high school, college level.

Speaker:

Mm-hmm I don't think that's right.

Speaker:

So there's two in this thing that I feel I feel's wrong for transgender

Speaker:

to compete against that sex.

Speaker:

You know, if you're male to female, female, to male,

Speaker:

to compete against the sex.

Speaker:

And I it's that all.

Speaker:

So there, there has to be somewhere along the against just.

Speaker:

I, it doesn't sound right, but it doesn't sound right.

Speaker:

And, and I don't, I don't know.

Speaker:

I, unless it's co-ed, I mean, we, we talked about that.

Speaker:

That's that makes sense.

Speaker:

Now that I can get down with that I can get down so we

Speaker:

can, we can figure that out.

Speaker:

I mean, it's, I was thinking about, it's funny when we're young, right?

Speaker:

When you're five years old, they play coed soccer, right?

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

When you're in high school, when you're in high school and you're competing in

Speaker:

PE it's coed softball and it's co-ed kickball and it's coed volleyball.

Speaker:

Um, well, why don't we set a boundaries where there's coed opportunities for

Speaker:

them to compete at, at the high school level one at the Collegium level.

Speaker:

So they don't feel isolated, right?

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

You can't, you can't compete in a strictly if you're former male

Speaker:

to you, can't strictly, but you can't compete in and compete.

Speaker:

In't

Speaker:

tough conversation.

Speaker:

I can't pretend I have an answer.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

But I already know, I would be opposed if a transgender was

Speaker:

competing against my daughter.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

And they had an unfair advantage.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

You know, physical advantage over my daughter, she was working

Speaker:

really hard for her sport.

Speaker:

And then all of a sudden, you know, someone comes in with an unfair physical

Speaker:

advantage because used to be a male and then take her job or beat her in

Speaker:

something that she worked really, really hard would have a problem with that.

Speaker:

That's maybe that's just my personal problem, but I know

Speaker:

I would've an issue with it.

Speaker:

Well, Ella, a lot of the outspoken parents who have, have said something online have

Speaker:

have said, stated exactly the same thing.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

They, they said that they have a, uh, some hesitation and they would

Speaker:

have an issue with, uh, kind of a co-mingling of the, of the competition.

Speaker:

So mm-hmm, I think co coed just sounds right.

Speaker:

Put us in, in some of those rooms, let us make these decisions, man.

Speaker:

You know, we can make these things happen.

Speaker:

That's open discussion, right?

Speaker:

That's the discussion we should be having like, OK, well, if we're not

Speaker:

gonna do this, have a coed competition with them participate in these.

Speaker:

I do believe though, I do.

Speaker:

Not only do I believe that I would have a problem?

Speaker:

Like I said, somebody competing against my daughter.

Speaker:

I also have a problem with them banning.

Speaker:

I do.

Speaker:

I have a problem with them saying you can't compete no more.

Speaker:

Just cause you know, you, you, you know, you wanna be a transgender,

Speaker:

that's also not the right answer either.

Speaker:

So yeah.

Speaker:

I'm not quite sure what those discussions have behind those closed

Speaker:

doors, but whatever it is, I don't feel what they're saying right now.

Speaker:

Especially in that verbiage in that article.

Speaker:

That's not right either.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

So the first pass is definitely that that that draft should not

Speaker:

have been, should not have come out.

Speaker:

That's need to that to in number two, for sure.

Speaker:

Doing some different, but I mean all in all though, man, I mean, like I said,

Speaker:

I think gotta between some different and then also who's that's that C that

Speaker:

right there all was gentleman was the, would love that to

Speaker:

know who's on that board.

Speaker:

Who's at a committee making those decisions.

Speaker:

And is there a transgender person on that committee to be able

Speaker:

to give them recommendations on what their next steps should be

Speaker:

instead of just banning these kids?

Speaker:

Yes.

Speaker:

I don't think this is the, this is the, this is the, the democratic

Speaker:

governor of Louisiana who, who made no moves to halt this.

Speaker:

So that, that that's who this gentleman is.

Speaker:

I, I wanna get to this comment, shout outside to, we see you, Doug man.

Speaker:

Thank you for joining, but he says they can still try out for the men's team.

Speaker:

It just bars, transgender women from competing against biological women.

Speaker:

Now there's an issue with that statement.

Speaker:

Great.

Speaker:

Thank you for the comment, man.

Speaker:

But why would you want to try out if you can't compete?

Speaker:

Why, why, why, why just go to practice.

Speaker:

When, when, when you can't actually suit up and actually get out there and go for

Speaker:

a metal, go for a ribbon, go for whatever.

Speaker:

I think that's a generic statement.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

You gotta look at the other end.

Speaker:

Let's say, okay.

Speaker:

They can out the men's squad.

Speaker:

Now they're now they're through the process and they're the men's they're

Speaker:

competing with men in the transgender's body and the transgender makeup.

Speaker:

We gotta be real with ourselves.

Speaker:

They will be ostracized by ignorant people.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

They will be commented.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Torn down everything about from people from the stands to other

Speaker:

people that compete against just because they don't understand

Speaker:

what that person's going through.

Speaker:

OK.

Speaker:

So trying out is cool.

Speaker:

And even they make the team that may be cool that they achieve

Speaker:

that accomplishment, but we gotta look on the social impact.

Speaker:

Part of that's gonna, you a people, those people, and that's a lot to take someone.

Speaker:

Be going through the transition process?

Speaker:

No, that's a good, point's very good point.

Speaker:

Getting in that, in that sport, that sports is probably the most radical

Speaker:

racial divisive and especially look, we, we, we real, we calm about

Speaker:

our collegiate sports and our high school sports here on the west coast.

Speaker:

Look, if, if y'all never been to Texas, if y'all never been to the east coast,

Speaker:

it's the real deal out out there.

Speaker:

Yes, sir.

Speaker:

In high school and, and amateur sports is, uh, no joke is more important yeah.

Speaker:

Than professional sports at times.

Speaker:

Think about it.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I mean, and I can't just imagine how that person will be able

Speaker:

to react under that scrutiny.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Trying to compete in their same sex sport when they're trying to change their sex.

Speaker:

Does that, that I hope that makes sense.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

That, that, so.

Speaker:

I think that's even more difficult, like saying I can't play sports

Speaker:

or saying, Hey, you know what?

Speaker:

We gotta go play co-ed yeah, you gotta go play someplace else, man.

Speaker:

That just the weight of that on, on a young person's mind and psyche and you

Speaker:

know, just so social, uh, acceptance that yes, drawn more attention to

Speaker:

them than they, they want to, and they're just trying to be themselves.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

They just wanna compete.

Speaker:

They just wanna play.

Speaker:

This is who I am.

Speaker:

Let, let me, let me play.

Speaker:

But we know in sport, in sports that, that that's, that you hit it right on them.

Speaker:

That won't be just let me there, there won't be that.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

When you're trying to do that.

Speaker:

So I think that sounds good on paper.

Speaker:

That, that comment sounds great on paper mm-hmm it sounds good in theory,

Speaker:

but in reality, that doesn't work.

Speaker:

That does not work.

Speaker:

I mean, let, let's just, let's go back to Cait Jenner.

Speaker:

How much scrutiny did he, did he, did she get.

Speaker:

When she changed her sex.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I remember social blogs.

Speaker:

People were calling her name, rap songs were talking about yeah.

Speaker:

Stuff out here streets for, for took us, took us now.

Speaker:

I don't don't, she's

Speaker:

tolerable people to a lot of people.

Speaker:

Like they, they, they don't say anything about it anymore.

Speaker:

That's what I mean by tolerable or I say accepted.

Speaker:

That's a tough thing.

Speaker:

You're asking a person to go compete under lights under in

Speaker:

front of people in that process.

Speaker:

No, I don't think, man.

Speaker:

I just don't think, I don't think it'll be.

Speaker:

And then as I you think about it, if you start winning yeah.

Speaker:

Oh my.

Speaker:

Then you got all kind of folks, all kind scrutiny down, messing around and

Speaker:

start winning best if you start winning.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

If you start winning it's even worse.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

That's true.

Speaker:

So, I mean, man, I don't, I just.

Speaker:

Like I said, I don't,

Speaker:

I do not have the right.

Speaker:

Not right either.

Speaker:

So I'm not, I'm not quite sure this just needs to be re ridden and kinda back

Speaker:

to the table, get some other lenses and get some, actually some people talking

Speaker:

about it so they can make the change.

Speaker:

Like right now, it's the like of those do all the time they bills the don't

Speaker:

really know about barely read this.

Speaker:

One of them.

Speaker:

I think that needs to be really brought to the forefront of need to start

Speaker:

talking about it so they can start make the change in the beginning and get it

Speaker:

right from the beginning, not the end.

Speaker:

Wow.

Speaker:

So we, we have championed while you're talking about, say we have championed,

Speaker:

we have championed, uh, Brittany Greiner.

Speaker:

Mm-hmm we've championed mental health.

Speaker:

I think this should be one of the next one that we make sure doesn't

Speaker:

get swept under the rug because this, this is not going anywhere.

Speaker:

No.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

We, and, and the conversation is continuing to evolve.

Speaker:

I think it's going to get louder as.

Speaker:

Schools get back in a session, cuz right now everybody's out.

Speaker:

But then, like I say, every, every three years we start talking about the Olympics

Speaker:

and then these high school, collegiate athletes who are probably pretty good

Speaker:

mm-hmm have desires and hopes and goals of competing for their country.

Speaker:

So it's gonna come up then because then you've got the Olympic committee

Speaker:

who has to make that decision.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

They didn't make, they haven't made a decision yet about the other individual

Speaker:

that we talked about a few weeks ago.

Speaker:

I can't UN unfortunately remember the name, but so, so we'll, we'll,

Speaker:

we'll see if we can, we can, we can rally the troops and get some folks.

Speaker:

We talk about this a little bit more.

Speaker:

We, we gonna get into it around here.

Speaker:

Goodness gracious.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I think, I think somebody's gonna pick it up and talk about it.

Speaker:

Like, like we did and like we saw the article and we posted, well, you know, you

Speaker:

know, after they, after they listened to our show, ESPN is always gonna pick it up.

Speaker:

I'm you know, they, they be, they'd be biting man, E ESPN sports radio.

Speaker:

We be taking our stories.

Speaker:

I got problems with that.

Speaker:

I'm not bitter.

Speaker:

Yes I am.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I mean, it is what it is.

Speaker:

They, they wanna start to tackle the social impact story.

Speaker:

Like we.

Speaker:

Would they say imitation is the best form of flat.

Speaker:

So go ahead and tape.

Speaker:

But, but I do, but like I said, like you said, story's not going, I definitely,

Speaker:

really need to channel more efforts towards to get like, I, it, from the

Speaker:

when and conversations to correct it, I just, they need to start looking through

Speaker:

just another lens to figure out another lane to create, um, for them, like we do

Speaker:

everything we other, for other another

Speaker:

human

Speaker:

to play a sport, regardless what they identify with.

Speaker:

Just trying, just trying to lace them up.

Speaker:

Coach put me in coach that that's all.

Speaker:

We're just trying to put 'em in.

Speaker:

All I tell you what I'm, I'm sure we I'm sure we can bring some light to

Speaker:

it, but let's, let's move on Amanda.

Speaker:

Yeah, let's move.

Speaker:

So couple of stories that you weren't aware, but I just wanna

Speaker:

get your reaction to, and also the, uh, community's reaction to them.

Speaker:

Uh, you, you watch golf much a little bit, not too much,

Speaker:

but I watched it a little bit.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

You know, golf, golf, golf's in the news right now and, and it's not

Speaker:

necessarily, it's not just tiger.

Speaker:

There, there is a new tournament that has been new invitational series.

Speaker:

That's been launched called the L I mm-hmm , it's not here.

Speaker:

It's not part of the PGA.

Speaker:

The L I golf invitational is actually overseas.

Speaker:

It's funded by the Saudi Arabian government.

Speaker:

Mm.

Speaker:

The golfers that have decided to compete within the L I series L I is

Speaker:

the Roman numeral 4 54, this 4 54, uh, Matches within this invitational

Speaker:

series, those golfers are no longer part of the PGA they have been banned.

Speaker:

Huh?

Speaker:

Use that word again.

Speaker:

Mm-hmm they, they have been kicked out of the PGA so they can no longer compete with

Speaker:

the Rory McElroy, the tiger woods folks that decided to stay with PGA, who these

Speaker:

folks were offered millions and millions of dollars to leave the PGA and go compete

Speaker:

in this Saudi Arabian government backed invitational, but they turned it down.

Speaker:

I believe the, the story was the tiger was offered close to a billion dollars.

Speaker:

And he said, nah, it's not.

Speaker:

For me.

Speaker:

Challenge is Phil Mixon.

Speaker:

A lot of people know his name, right?

Speaker:

Mm-hmm he moved from the PGA to the L I, uh, Dustin Johnson.

Speaker:

A lot of people know his name.

Speaker:

He moved from the PGA to the L I.

Speaker:

Uh, what's his name?

Speaker:

Sergio Gomez.

Speaker:

I forgot his last a lot of prominently name and known golfers have decided

Speaker:

to follow the money for the most part.

Speaker:

That's what this story is saying right here.

Speaker:

Roy McElroy just, just won a couple of days ago and he's saying, look, I,

Speaker:

I didn't go over there messing around because this is following money.

Speaker:

That's backed by the Saudi Arabian government.

Speaker:

I'm a traditionalist.

Speaker:

I'm staying with the, uh, PGA, because that's just where the history is.

Speaker:

That's where the Arnold Palmers is.

Speaker:

That's where the jacks mm-hmm.

Speaker:

right.

Speaker:

That's where that is.

Speaker:

And that's where I'm trying to build my legacy.

Speaker:

Thanks, Doug.

Speaker:

Sergio Garcia.

Speaker:

Yeah, this, this is becoming a very controversial conversation in the

Speaker:

sports world because it's, it seems to be all about the money again

Speaker:

and well, but I mean, okay, lemme let's lemme pause you right there.

Speaker:

Why is it controversial?

Speaker:

One?

Speaker:

That's the competitions of elite?

Speaker:

I mean, I don't, I don't, I don't, I.

Speaker:

This new millennium, this new, this new era of this new generations of

Speaker:

generation Z, I guess where we're in now or yeah, and generation Z, you

Speaker:

know, generation Z and why they see things completely different than we did.

Speaker:

Our tradition is not their tradition anymore.

Speaker:

So why, if someone is gonna have a, a lead that's competing with the, with the

Speaker:

PGA and kinda, and, and, and the sport is similar, but maybe there's a few

Speaker:

different things and the money's there.

Speaker:

Why can, why, why is it so that bad to have the choice?

Speaker:

I'll tell you, I'll tell you what the, what the issue is, which seemingly

Speaker:

apparently is what the issue is.

Speaker:

Statement right here.

Speaker:

The fact that it's backed by the Saudi Arabian government, and we know that

Speaker:

the Saudi, listen, come on, I'm gonna go ahead and get political, right.

Speaker:

We know that the Saudi Arabian government has been accused of, uh, crimes against

Speaker:

humanity and things of that nature.

Speaker:

So.

Speaker:

That's the case right there for a lot of disdain for this.

Speaker:

Well, I'm kinda telling the story, right?

Speaker:

I'm telling the story.

Speaker:

I'm not necessarily giving my, but I'm telling you the story

Speaker:

of what's going on behind it.

Speaker:

Well, how hypercritical is that?

Speaker:

United States does the same thing.

Speaker:

Go, come on now.

Speaker:

Come on.

Speaker:

Listen.

Speaker:

I told you I'm pulling off this.

Speaker:

I just wanna have this convers come on.

Speaker:

Yeah, we're not, we're not.

Speaker:

You mean to tell me what they did to those Haitians, that

Speaker:

the border wasn't humane human.

Speaker:

Come on, come on.

Speaker:

You mean to mean, you mean sometimes somebody deports, some of these people

Speaker:

that come over this country to make a better life for isn't inhumane.

Speaker:

You mean to tell you what we did in Vietnam?

Speaker:

Wasn't inhumane.

Speaker:

We can inhumane things is just as well.

Speaker:

We may not do sweat and stuff like that to children or anything, but

Speaker:

we don't, we're not this we're not innocent by any stretching imagination.

Speaker:

So money is money.

Speaker:

Green is green money.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Work for you.

Speaker:

You're the end they've or what they've been accused.

Speaker:

But if they wanna get their money and go get it on, I don't see any

Speaker:

problem with it within a sport.

Speaker:

Now, my, my only question with them on L I is where they gotta play.

Speaker:

Do they always have to play Saudi Arabia or do they get to play in some of the

Speaker:

courses here in the United States?

Speaker:

And I believe if the money's OK.

Speaker:

And the money's right, I'm quite sure to pine is gonna be to whoever's playing.

Speaker:

They are playing here in, in the us at, at a number of, of courses.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I've got the list as well, but see, that's the conversation

Speaker:

that I wanted to have, right?

Speaker:

Because it is very slanted so far the news and, and, and this is, again, is

Speaker:

something that folks were probably gonna be talking about around the water cooler.

Speaker:

I'm hearing that Phil Michaelson, and I'm hearing that Greg Norman, and

Speaker:

I'm hearing that all these big name, folks that you hear and you see on co.

Speaker:

Are no longer part of the peg PGA.

Speaker:

Why?

Speaker:

Because they went and played for the L I golf tournament.

Speaker:

Yep.

Speaker:

And like Doug is saying, listen, man, the players want that

Speaker:

want that guaranteed money.

Speaker:

And it's, it's grown folks money it's they were already getting good money.

Speaker:

Now it's grown folks money.

Speaker:

But yeah, this statement right here, the PGA has helped tournaments in

Speaker:

Saudi Arabia before they only mad because they lost the big Dame period.

Speaker:

But this is the conversation that I wanted to have.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

Because again, you you're gonna hear about it on left, right.

Speaker:

And center news eight news to outlets.

Speaker:

But here that that's the statement right there that I, that I

Speaker:

wanted to actually come out.

Speaker:

It's it's, it's not a bad thing to be following that money.

Speaker:

If you're taking care of your family, you made that decision consciously

Speaker:

as a Filmon and as a Dustin Johnson lead P I wanna go back you Reed

Speaker:

inhumane and an analogy.

Speaker:

Do people for the Minnesota police department all day, every.

Speaker:

24.

Speaker:

Did they just, did they just commit a human inhumane act on, on a young man?

Speaker:

Not what?

Speaker:

Maybe not even a year ago.

Speaker:

Go, go, keep talking.

Speaker:

Go ahead.

Speaker:

Go ahead.

Speaker:

So, so, so what, tell me, tell me what the difference is them saying,

Speaker:

Hey, I'm go work for a company that's maybe being, accusing, creating a

Speaker:

human humane act, but they're going to pay me the money that I'm worth.

Speaker:

So don't, I, people need to get off the higher, more, the higher moral stepping

Speaker:

stool and judging, judging everyone.

Speaker:

And let this, let these, let this generation kind of do what they wanna do.

Speaker:

And I agree.

Speaker:

PGA is just upset because they're starting to lose big names because Saudi Arabia

Speaker:

is backing that money over what they got.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

And there's nothing wrong with that.

Speaker:

I, I, I believe there's nothing wrong in the spirit of competition.

Speaker:

Um, when the especially comes to professional leagues like that, I think

Speaker:

I like it even better cause that now more young people to become more professionals.

Speaker:

And now, and now opens that door for more people to be able to get in that level of

Speaker:

getting that competition and make money.

Speaker:

That is their profession.

Speaker:

There was nothing wrong with competition.

Speaker:

There, there, there you go.

Speaker:

Right there, there, there, I feel that there is nothing wrong with competition

Speaker:

and, and these players are, listen.

Speaker:

Michelson's I don't know.

Speaker:

He's he's old cat.

Speaker:

He's up, you know, my age, 50, 60, whatever.

Speaker:

He, he knows what he's doing.

Speaker:

He made the conscious decision to say, listen, I know if I go over here, I'm

Speaker:

gonna have to leave this one behind.

Speaker:

He said, I, I hope it's not that great.

Speaker:

I'm paraphrasing an interview that he did a couple days ago.

Speaker:

Um, I would hope that the PGA would allow us to still play eventually

Speaker:

down the road, but for me in my house right now, time to go, yeah, I'm gonna

Speaker:

go over here and do this thing right here and, and get this, uh, L I money.

Speaker:

Yeah, man.

Speaker:

There's not, you can, you cannot be mad at, at these, at these men for doing that.

Speaker:

You can't be mad at, you cannot be, you can't be mad at them

Speaker:

and you can't that state.

Speaker:

Like I said, that statement, actually, that statement pissed

Speaker:

me off, man, that you highlighted.

Speaker:

That's not, that's so unfair.

Speaker:

To be critical at the people that are paying the dollar.

Speaker:

And this is, this is right outta, this is right outta golf digest too.

Speaker:

So yeah.

Speaker:

It's no, see, so again, you understand, wait, wait, wait, right.

Speaker:

When you say who's golf digest, biggest, biggest sponsor or

Speaker:

biggest storytelling is PGA.

Speaker:

So of course they're going say negative things about what you know, who was

Speaker:

up by and the Saudi Arabia government does this and does that, and does

Speaker:

this man political views aside?

Speaker:

Cause you know, they probably won't, they probably done some crazy things

Speaker:

that we don't and all that stuff, but we're talking about just the business

Speaker:

of golf and the business of golf.

Speaker:

I think it's okay to go compete at now.

Speaker:

Don't get me wrong.

Speaker:

I know, you know, we, we, years ago we did a apartheid against, uh, Pepsi, cause

Speaker:

they were supporting South Africa, right?

Speaker:

The things that were going along with them, but people still

Speaker:

drink Pepsi still going on Pepsi.

Speaker:

And also we brought awareness.

Speaker:

I think this is, this is even a more platform to bring awareness to what

Speaker:

Saudi Arabia is doing and clean it.

Speaker:

You know, if we gonna use that round, this is place.

Speaker:

We can bring more awareness to it.

Speaker:

If they're doing something wrong, doings to kinda clean it

Speaker:

up and help them to do better.

Speaker:

But to, to knock these men for going to compete in alleg.

Speaker:

Cause it it's backed by Saudi Arabia.

Speaker:

I'm sure a lot of things we do is back by some companies over layers

Speaker:

and layers that we do not agree with.

Speaker:

We buy products every day.

Speaker:

That's that's got something bad behind it, you know, in the forefront,

Speaker:

people wear Levi jeans every single day.

Speaker:

How many jeans, how many people, Levi jeans, Levi jeans was in

Speaker:

South Africa for years still.

Speaker:

Do they still pour their chemicals and running?

Speaker:

I don't, nobody stopped wearing jeans.

Speaker:

There's nobody parttime saying we don't wanna jeans no more got so why

Speaker:

are we getting this, this political?

Speaker:

Why is it become a political issue now?

Speaker:

Because now professors wanna jump and go play in that league.

Speaker:

I think there's where they're wrong in that article and saying that.

Speaker:

You wanted my opinion.

Speaker:

I have no problem with them gonna play, go get your money.

Speaker:

Mm-hmm go do what you're gonna do.

Speaker:

If you ain't hurt nobody and you're doing OK.

Speaker:

And you can bring some awareness to, to correct some wrong I'm all for it.

Speaker:

Hundred percent.

Speaker:

See folks.

Speaker:

Yep.

Speaker:

See, mantel knows.

Speaker:

I find some of these stories sometimes just to, like I said, throw some

Speaker:

salt in, in, in wounds to have that conversation 80% of the time.

Speaker:

He and I agree on, on, on what we're talking about, but this dialogue

Speaker:

needs to happen and needed to happen.

Speaker:

It's it's pretty cool to even see that a lot of folks in the community and the

Speaker:

comments right now kind of typically kind of agree with us right now.

Speaker:

But Doug is saying PGA should have just be quiet.

Speaker:

Mm-hmm they just given free publicity to this new competition

Speaker:

and, and that, and that's what it is.

Speaker:

But, um, a lot of folks are interested in golf.

Speaker:

A lot of folks, there's a lot of money that's tied up in golf.

Speaker:

So that's really why I wanted to have this convers because listen, this, this.

Speaker:

When you start going to the us open, when you start going to the master and

Speaker:

you start going to those competitions and you're like, well, where's, you

Speaker:

know, where's Sergio, where's Dustin.

Speaker:

Where's Phil.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

So, so that that's when it's gonna come out and it may be an even

Speaker:

more convoluted conversation.

Speaker:

So listen team, no, we be getting in front of him.

Speaker:

We talking about it right now.

Speaker:

You know, what' be interesting though.

Speaker:

I would be very interested to see if, if the Saudi raps, what

Speaker:

sponsorships they have, right?

Speaker:

Like what sponsorships do they bring to the forefront?

Speaker:

Because let's be perfectly honest if they're gonna start golfing

Speaker:

over here in the us and these big venues, I'm sure at some point

Speaker:

they're gonna pick us from TV time.

Speaker:

Cause these are just well known professional golfers

Speaker:

that bring that attract.

Speaker:

So once they start getting that TV time, it, I would be interested to

Speaker:

see what kind of sponsors they get.

Speaker:

Now, if that sponsorship starts becoming equal to what PG a does,

Speaker:

then PGA, PG E I mean PG a, a problem.

Speaker:

They, they, they know at that point we gotta change.

Speaker:

So this has gotta change.

Speaker:

Um, if they don't.

Speaker:

It may be, I don't know how much I, I know Saudi Arabia has money,

Speaker:

but at some point the, well, they won't make, they won't make money.

Speaker:

If they don't get the sponsorships, obviously in the long run, you have

Speaker:

to start getting sponsorships in order for it to keep Regener money.

Speaker:

That's how they get their contracts, all this thing.

Speaker:

That's the part I'm interested in.

Speaker:

Anything the back money, Saudi Arabia got that all day.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

But L I long, as long as PG and a has lasted cause PG and A's sponsorship.

Speaker:

From, you know, 10 centuries.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Well, I, I, I don't know.

Speaker:

I don't think that's gonna be an issue because yeah.

Speaker:

As you mentioned, the Saudi Arabia, government has boatloads of money

Speaker:

that, you know, just, just money, like it's nobody's business.

Speaker:

But this guy right here, folks in the Gulf world know who this guy is great.

Speaker:

A Australian golfer, Greg Norman, Greg Norman is the

Speaker:

CEO mm-hmm of I, so, oh wow.

Speaker:

He's at the he's at the head of it.

Speaker:

He's the one doing all the recruiting.

Speaker:

He's the one, right?

Speaker:

He, he carries the clout and, and was able to tell someone like a, like a Filmon

Speaker:

come on over here and hang out with us.

Speaker:

Get this money.

Speaker:

Hey, Sergio, come on over here and get this money.

Speaker:

He couldn't convince tiger.

Speaker:

Couldn't convince Rory.

Speaker:

So couple of folks, but in terms of sponsorships, endorsements, you, you got

Speaker:

some, some high powered names at the top of the list, so it's, it's gonna happen.

Speaker:

It's just gonna be kind of interesting to see as it all

Speaker:

starts, uh, all starts going.

Speaker:

I love it, man.

Speaker:

I think, I think it's great, man.

Speaker:

I, I wish it would.

Speaker:

It would, it would be kind of like the oversight of boxing, how

Speaker:

boxing has the WBO, the WBA and the WC kinda sanctions arenas.

Speaker:

It would be great if golf had that, you know, part of the, part of the PGA, but

Speaker:

they could also cross pollinate as they play against each other across pollinate

Speaker:

and tournaments cross come on now.

Speaker:

Or even, even you like versus PGA, not for P,

Speaker:

but I think, you know, I think gotta have toed it or you

Speaker:

gotta come start to embrace it.

Speaker:

I, I, I know football so I can go back to football.

Speaker:

The USFL failed, right?

Speaker:

When they tried to compete against the NFL.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

They failed.

Speaker:

They couldn't compete.

Speaker:

Um, Dwayne, Johnson's very smart.

Speaker:

He's bringing the cause.

Speaker:

Failed compete with the

Speaker:

D Johnson did with the says, Hey, you know what?

Speaker:

I embrace your, I kinda your baby brother.

Speaker:

I another outlet for athlete's

Speaker:

that L I, and kind of start them in that partnership.

Speaker:

I think they can make more money than they can ever imagine.

Speaker:

Mm-hmm instead of the agents losing.

Speaker:

Yeah, right.

Speaker:

They, they, uh, they sitting with their tail between your legs right

Speaker:

now and, and just, uh, disappointed that they losing some big names.

Speaker:

So they, they, they're just gonna go pout in the corner right now.

Speaker:

We'll see, we'll see it all, all flushes out, but that's kind of how

Speaker:

PGA officials are, are responding right now, too competition.

Speaker:

Wow.

Speaker:

Wow.

Speaker:

You're the only game in town.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

We'll, we'll, we'll move on.

Speaker:

But I wanted to bring that up because again, that, that, that had some

Speaker:

controversy for a subset of the sports world and it's going to grow, it's it.

Speaker:

It's going to get little more loud, loud as, as well as we move on.

Speaker:

Let me, let me see.

Speaker:

I'm trying to do some things and I'm trying to raise the production level.

Speaker:

Let's see what happens if I do this.

Speaker:

Can you hear that?

Speaker:

Nope.

Speaker:

I can't hear it.

Speaker:

Oh, actually can hear.

Speaker:

Oh, alright.

Speaker:

Let me, they can hear, they might be able to hear it.

Speaker:

I don't know.

Speaker:

And can y'all no, I, I see it's it's not planned through my system audio.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

I'll fix that.

Speaker:

Trying to raise production level all the time.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

Always trying to try to step it up one more time.

Speaker:

Listen, you, you mentioned boxing.

Speaker:

Yes.

Speaker:

Uh, always some news in boxing.

Speaker:

No, one's necessarily throwing them blows right now, but, uh,

Speaker:

Floyd Mayweather mm-hmm wow.

Speaker:

Money you may met.

Speaker:

He wants to, he wants to take some of them suitcases of money

Speaker:

and, uh, invest and become an owner either primary or secondary.

Speaker:

Just put, put his name on the dotted line of an NBA team.

Speaker:

What is that all about?

Speaker:

What, what's your thought on someone like a Floyd Mayweather, uh, crossing

Speaker:

sports genres, you know, crossing from boxing and, and going into NBA as a, as

Speaker:

a primary or maybe even a minority owner.

Speaker:

He's a big fan of the NBA.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

He has the money to.

Speaker:

To get into, to get into ownership.

Speaker:

I think it's a great opportunity for, for him.

Speaker:

I think he, I think he mentioned this at the right time, the NBAs about

Speaker:

they may possibly expand in the years.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Las Vegas is one of the places they're about expanding as a team.

Speaker:

Why not for may?

Speaker:

The biggest in Las Vegas boxing history not have, have an opportunity to get, get

Speaker:

a piece of that pie and be a part of that team and be a part of that ownership.

Speaker:

Um, and for him letting money go, you know, go longer than right now.

Speaker:

I think it's a great opportu.

Speaker:

Sports is not new.

Speaker:

We talked about Patrick Mahomes last week.

Speaker:

He owns, he owns Kansas city Royals.

Speaker:

There's nothing wrong with that.

Speaker:

If you own another sport.

Speaker:

Um, I think it only becomes tainted if you, if you buy in your sport that the

Speaker:

plane, because then you can have some type of control, you know, with that.

Speaker:

But if you probably purchasing in another sport, um, I have no problem with it.

Speaker:

I wish Floyd the best, but I think.

Speaker:

These are great talks he's getting involved with.

Speaker:

I think he's, like you said, he's putting his money where

Speaker:

his mouth at the right time.

Speaker:

So talking about expansion, uh, and possibly buying an existing team and he

Speaker:

fan of the sport, what, what better sport?

Speaker:

You know, one of the greatest already knows about marketing.

Speaker:

He's done it all of his life.

Speaker:

That's, that's where I was gonna go.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

If anyone can be an ambassador and get out there and talk about, and,

Speaker:

and, and advertise and market, I think Floyd even more cuz Shaq

Speaker:

owned part of the Kings here.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

But he, he really wasn't as vocal.

Speaker:

He really look, Shaq does his thing and he fantastic at what he does.

Speaker:

But Matt, just to be able to raise the level of conversation, E even though the

Speaker:

NBA is the, is one of the biggest games in town period, but someone like a money

Speaker:

Mayweather out there talking about owning a team, do doing whatever that, that

Speaker:

just seems to raise that marketability.

Speaker:

I first time I read this story, I initially thought about what we talk about

Speaker:

of combining and doing something with w N B a, he, he could be someone that could

Speaker:

sit in that room and say, listen, let's really go out here, make this money.

Speaker:

Let's really go out here and make this entertaining.

Speaker:

Cause I, I look at Floyd honestly, less as an athlete, even though

Speaker:

he's phenomenal athlete, but I look at him as an entertainer, right.

Speaker:

He knows business.

Speaker:

He, he knows how to bring people and put people in seats and he knows

Speaker:

how to make people spend that money.

Speaker:

So he is someone that could actually, if he's got the keys to the, the conference

Speaker:

room, he could actually make something like that happen of, of, uh, raising

Speaker:

the visibility, the w N B a and doing something with, uh, you know, flailing.

Speaker:

He could be the, um, Deon Sanders.

Speaker:

right.

Speaker:

He, he could Nick Deon Sanders.

Speaker:

I don't see that.

Speaker:

I see, I see him more of, um, like you said, I think he's in definitely

Speaker:

marketing marketing himself.

Speaker:

And I think he could market things that he, he own and he wants to be a part of

Speaker:

mm-hmm I think he's a master, a master.

Speaker:

I think the fact that he's a big fan will add a lot, a lot

Speaker:

because he'll be at games.

Speaker:

People be able to see him.

Speaker:

He's he's accessible as far as visually seeing him at the course

Speaker:

side of games and all that stuff where wherever he would own.

Speaker:

I believe that, um, I, I think people don't realize, I think Floyd

Speaker:

has a heavy voice in the sports world for what he's accomplished.

Speaker:

You know, people don't, he came, he came from pretty much nothing.

Speaker:

You know, his uncle and his dad was boxing, but he to make a superstar, you

Speaker:

know, way above, above them to be able to be in positions that he's in right now own

Speaker:

his own production company with boxing.

Speaker:

I think he bring so much to the, you know, from his boxing experience over to,

Speaker:

I think basketball as far as marketing and how we should do things and what we

Speaker:

should, what could be the enter factor.

Speaker:

I hugely hu hugely valued in those and that

Speaker:

he's like I said, he, he has the money to do it.

Speaker:

Why not?

Speaker:

I mean, why not?

Speaker:

Green is green.

Speaker:

It doesn't matter, you know, if he has the money, he can do it.

Speaker:

Green green is green.

Speaker:

Go ahead.

Speaker:

yeah.

Speaker:

I give an opportunity to part of it or part of a buying

Speaker:

group to be able to get in.

Speaker:

Also, I think Floyd's connections within the hiphop community will

Speaker:

bring another, you know what I mean?

Speaker:

He'll have a lot of support because he has a of support from, from other

Speaker:

other entities within the hiphop community to want to support his team

Speaker:

and support what he's trying to do and be a part of what he is doing.

Speaker:

He'll have the boxing community buy in at what he's trying to do

Speaker:

and be a part of what he is doing.

Speaker:

So he has a lot of guys, the people that will be in this corner as if he gets the

Speaker:

opportunity to be in it, to be successful.

Speaker:

So I think it's, it's, it's great.

Speaker:

I think it's a great news man.

Speaker:

And you know, the opportunity to be an owner man is always good.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Get on your own business.

Speaker:

Man's always a good thing.

Speaker:

So congratulations to the man.

Speaker:

If he, I think it, I think it would happen if, if anyone can do it.

Speaker:

Um, Floyd is.

Speaker:

Boisterous enough to make it happen.

Speaker:

He's got enough.

Speaker:

He walks around with enough cash in his suitcase, in his suitcases,

Speaker:

in, you know, in the trunks of his car that he can actually, uh, make

Speaker:

that down payment if necessary.

Speaker:

Uh, well, and you know, what's crazy.

Speaker:

Floyd brings, um, these guys a lot, man.

Speaker:

I mean the, the, the, you know, the, the, uh, the apparel, the cars, you know, his

Speaker:

lifestyle that he lives, that he really, that he really likes to exploit out there.

Speaker:

His, his lifestyle is something that is very appealing.

Speaker:

I think when you wanna own a team, right?

Speaker:

Because you wanna, you wanna show that you wanna be able to market that you

Speaker:

wanna be that out there, you wanna, people are interested in watching that.

Speaker:

Mm-hmm, , I think his cross, he, he could cross over and do a lot of those things.

Speaker:

And like I said, his influence in the hip hop community and the music community

Speaker:

and what he's done in boxing and all these other arenas, man, I just think

Speaker:

he could bring so much to the table.

Speaker:

Um, you know, you know, be it'll be a boxing exhibition and he'll

Speaker:

be out there, suited up too, right.

Speaker:

Trying to throw the Mo.

Speaker:

Him and Oscar, him and Oscar de LA Hoya.

Speaker:

No, we not.

Speaker:

We mess not messing around with no, no.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

We not messing around with Oscar no more, but look what he's doing, but

Speaker:

look, what he's with his boxing, you know, is boxing company.

Speaker:

He's, he's got another champion with boxing team that and all, I think

Speaker:

he's really, he's really got for doing those types of things, but Alsos, what

Speaker:

market he gets into, where does he go?

Speaker:

True.

Speaker:

If he goes to Vegas and he gets teams, it'll be great fit.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I don't think he'll do so great if he owns the Indiana Pacers, you

Speaker:

know, it's gotta, I couldn't see.

Speaker:

I honestly, yeah, you're right.

Speaker:

I, I, I didn't even think that Wade, Dwayne Wade, where,

Speaker:

what does he own Utah jazz.

Speaker:

Mm, right.

Speaker:

I, I, I could have seen Dwayne, listen, I, again, I, I'm not in those

Speaker:

conversations with him and his wife, but so, you know, Utah jazz and Dwayne

Speaker:

Wayne don't seem to match as much as, you know, maybe him trying to get a

Speaker:

little piece of Miami or whatever, but.

Speaker:

I, I disagree with you because I think if you look at the bigger picture,

Speaker:

remember when you get that ownership, it's all profit sharing, right?

Speaker:

Who sells out their stadiums, who sells memorabilia, Utah,

Speaker:

jazz owns all salt lake city.

Speaker:

They sell out every game.

Speaker:

Well, cause there's nothing to do in Utah.

Speaker:

I've been there.

Speaker:

I I've been there too, but you're talkings going on standpoint, but

Speaker:

you're talking from a fan standpoint from a business standpoint.

Speaker:

I am okay.

Speaker:

No, I am you're right.

Speaker:

It makes, it makes all the sense in the world.

Speaker:

The only Utah jazz, we're gonna sell out every game, whether we win, lose,

Speaker:

or draw, our memorability is gonna sell every year and I'm gonna get a

Speaker:

big old ticket at the end of the year.

Speaker:

See's Dwayne Wade money.

Speaker:

See that there you got, I'm making decisions like I'm just, you know, down in

Speaker:

the 200 section and he, he on the floor.

Speaker:

he's on the floor, man.

Speaker:

So I think business wise is a great, it's a great investment.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I think was a great investment for Sacramento, because like you said,

Speaker:

Sacramento sold out for the last 30 years.

Speaker:

I less than win, lose, draw my paychecks at the end of the day.

Speaker:

Cause they're gonna shout out every.

Speaker:

Memorability is gonna sell.

Speaker:

That's all I care about.

Speaker:

Now it's a bonus that they make the playoffs if they're winning, but if

Speaker:

they don't win, I'm still making money.

Speaker:

Whether they win, lose, or draw, it's a great investment on anywhere around.

Speaker:

So that's the business 1 0 1 sports, everybody.

Speaker:

So it is right.

Speaker:

You can't think as a fan, you gotta a business person.

Speaker:

Professor Allen is in the building, you know, make sure you give the

Speaker:

teacher, you know, some kudos.

Speaker:

So if, if you want that plus on your report card, cuz right now you just

Speaker:

gotta B minus you wanna B plus you

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

If you want B plus, you're gonna have to subscribe to the channel there.

Speaker:

Come on now.

Speaker:

Do do what you need to do.

Speaker:

Um, absolutely.

Speaker:

Floyd Manweller is talking about possibly owning a sports team.

Speaker:

That's good stuff.

Speaker:

That's that's good news, right?

Speaker:

Mm-hmm I mean that that's that's commendable, but we, we got another story.

Speaker:

Um, yeah, we, we got someone who actually signed on a dotted line and now owns

Speaker:

team mm-hmm . Let's let's go ahead and get these flowers to miss melody Hobson.

Speaker:

First black female owner in all of NFL history, who is part

Speaker:

owner of them, Denver Broncos.

Speaker:

Come on now.

Speaker:

Ah, you know, huh?

Speaker:

Power.

Speaker:

Let's just let, let, let that marinate right there.

Speaker:

Just, just full minute right there.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

melody has power is in that room, power move at the table.

Speaker:

That's that's just a power move, man.

Speaker:

Come on.

Speaker:

I'm I'm in.

Speaker:

I'm happy.

Speaker:

Um, I'm happy that she's a part of that, that group that bought it.

Speaker:

Um, I don't know how much say she has, you know, as far as the owner and she's

Speaker:

a minor minority shareholder, she's gonna be one of the ones that be in

Speaker:

their meetings and figuring out rules and regulations and talking about, you

Speaker:

know, all that good stuff with the PA.

Speaker:

But the fact matter that she kicked foot share the first doors for, to

Speaker:

for partner.

Speaker:

Um, and I hope she opens continues open doors.

Speaker:

I hope she does use her, her platform now that she's at, to use her voice to

Speaker:

kinda make things happen and change, you know, where there needs to be

Speaker:

corrections in the NFL, correct.

Speaker:

That they're open for other folks.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

Cause, cause Goodell, you know, he, he can make this statement

Speaker:

and I'm highlighting it right now.

Speaker:

Right.

Speaker:

Uh, commissioner, Gelle stated that he wanted the next ownership

Speaker:

group to have some minority representation throughout the whole

Speaker:

bidding process for the franchise.

Speaker:

Okay.

Speaker:

We've got he, he says a lot of things and, and you can take some of it with a grain

Speaker:

of salt, but you know, Gadel said that and, and now we have miss miss Hobson.

Speaker:

I think's, she's not the first black owner or female owner.

Speaker:

Cause the Serena William and them own a piece of the dolphins.

Speaker:

SNA Serena, Venus wings.

Speaker:

Yes.

Speaker:

They, they, they own a minority stake in the dolphins.

Speaker:

Correct?

Speaker:

That is true.

Speaker:

But the role that Ms.

Speaker:

Hobson is gonna have, I think is gonna be much more vocal for

Speaker:

the, you asked a question, do you think that she's gonna be.

Speaker:

At that table making decisions.

Speaker:

I, I think because of her household that she will be, you know who her husband is?

Speaker:

No, I do not me show your husband.

Speaker:

Oh my man.

Speaker:

Uh, the director dude, the movie guy, right?

Speaker:

George Lucas, George Lucas, the creator of star wars, star wars.

Speaker:

So that's a powerhouse right there, right?

Speaker:

Yes.

Speaker:

So they, they get things done.

Speaker:

They, they, they, they make big money moves.

Speaker:

That's that's like Oprah rentre right.

Speaker:

That's so that that's, that's who she's sitting across

Speaker:

the table from at the house.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Melanie Hobson is gonna make some things happen in the NFL, at

Speaker:

the Denver Broncos organization.

Speaker:

She's going crack to door over for other folks.

Speaker:

I, I truly believe that this is nothing but greatness for everyone

Speaker:

who wants to have a say right.

Speaker:

And wants to have an opportunity.

Speaker:

So yet, so that's who she's sitting across the, the dining

Speaker:

room table from right there.

Speaker:

The man who created star wars.

Speaker:

So shout out the melody hops.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

I think, yeah, man, like I said, I, I hope she's able to make that impact.

Speaker:

I would love to see where she's at and be able to give her

Speaker:

perspective in those meetings.

Speaker:

You know, we all know the NFL has a lot of cleanup to do in the background.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Um, and, and hopefully she could be, she could spearhead that not only for African

Speaker:

Americans, but also women, you know, who want to get into the profession of

Speaker:

being in the, in administrative roles or who wants to be in the ownership role or

Speaker:

management roles and GM roles in the, the, um, which you know's far few in between.

Speaker:

Um, I believe she can kick down a lot of doors with that, but you know,

Speaker:

what proof put has to start in, I wanna see what she does organization.

Speaker:

We see, you know, her being to spread her wings out into all of them, because

Speaker:

the bottom line, she's one in a room of, of, of 20, of 30 men or 30 other men.

Speaker:

And one's another minority, which is, I'm not.

Speaker:

Middle ways or old white men that have been set their ways for so many

Speaker:

years would also want a lot of money.

Speaker:

So it's gonna be, you know, let's see what happens.

Speaker:

Kind of what she does in house, cuz she has more control of what happens in house

Speaker:

than she does throughout the week first.

Speaker:

Correct?

Speaker:

Correct.

Speaker:

I, I, I completely agree with that.

Speaker:

And that's one of the reasons why I also stopped on this graphic

Speaker:

here on the screen right here.

Speaker:

So she's been in those rooms and she's been in those situations where she's been

Speaker:

definitely pinned up against the, you know, the, the majority mm-hmm right.

Speaker:

As a chairwoman of the board for Starbucks as the chairman of the

Speaker:

board for dream work for all these positions that she's had, she's had

Speaker:

to deal with a lot of adversity.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

But this is completely different.

Speaker:

And chauvinistic, I think dealing in the national football league,

Speaker:

but yeah, she she's been she's she's been around the block a few times

Speaker:

and knows how to handle itself.

Speaker:

So, but this is, this is a test.

Speaker:

I, well, the only argument with you, this is gonna be different.

Speaker:

Cause the other 29 or 30 people that's in the room.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Got just as much money as, as you and your husband does and

Speaker:

made power moves just like him.

Speaker:

So you know what I'm saying?

Speaker:

There's a little bit too when she's, you know, one of the one's one of the

Speaker:

most richest and most influential, most powerful women in the.

Speaker:

It does, it does fix volumes.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

And it speak volumes in the NFL, but those guys in that room are just as, just

Speaker:

as powerful and just as high or if not higher, you know, you know, the, uh, yeah.

Speaker:

Jerry Jones in there, you know, he got more money than he, you don't even know

Speaker:

where half his money is, so Hey, yeah.

Speaker:

The Rooney family and all those guys.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Hey, they, they, you know, they're not, they're not gonna bud as

Speaker:

easily just because she's in the room, you know what I'm saying?

Speaker:

They're not gonna be intimidated.

Speaker:

She's in the room and speaking.

Speaker:

Um, but the, the fact that she's at the table that speaks volume.

Speaker:

I'm not gonna deny that, but like I said, I wanna see how you change

Speaker:

inhouse because that'll show how you're gonna be an influence, the

Speaker:

other teams outside the house.

Speaker:

Wow.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

And kinda go from there.

Speaker:

Good point.

Speaker:

That's a good point.

Speaker:

We, we will see, but that's, that's a good thing to have though.

Speaker:

I'm just gonna say that's a, that's a good thing to have for sure.

Speaker:

Yeah, I gotta get a bro.

Speaker:

Gotta get some Broncos gear.

Speaker:

Just, yeah, man.

Speaker:

Gotta gotta go rock some, some Broncos gear.

Speaker:

Uh, I don't know that that, that would probably clash with my Steeler's gear.

Speaker:

So I, I'm not sure if that's gonna work, but I'll now you could just root from one.

Speaker:

I ain't going against the steel.

Speaker:

You good?

Speaker:

I think I've actually, I've been, I've been invited.

Speaker:

Did I tell you this?

Speaker:

I've been invited to Steelers game, uh, in Miami when they played the dolphins.

Speaker:

Oh yeah.

Speaker:

So yeah.

Speaker:

Uh, I think, I think I'm a roll out there.

Speaker:

Someone, someone who I interviewed a few months ago, you know, made

Speaker:

the offer, I've looking at tickets.

Speaker:

I said, okay.

Speaker:

I, I might be able to make this happen.

Speaker:

So, so shout out to, to that colleague and to, to that opportunity, I'll let,

Speaker:

I'll let you know mantel if I'm I'm up in there in Miami dolphin stadium.

Speaker:

TWI towel.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Please let me know, man.

Speaker:

That's that's that's that's good.

Speaker:

All the way around, bro.

Speaker:

Yeah, we'll see.

Speaker:

We'll see how that happens.

Speaker:

Let's let's go ahead.

Speaker:

Move.

Speaker:

We got, I got, uh, one more story and it's kind of a funny story.

Speaker:

It, a tail end.

Speaker:

So I figure we, we do three stories and listen, it's already been an hour,

Speaker:

so I, I think it's right on time.

Speaker:

So I'll, I'll do just kind of the pause right now for the calls.

Speaker:

Oh my God.

Speaker:

That is right there.

Speaker:

Listen every Tuesday, six 30.

Speaker:

This is what we do, team.

Speaker:

Speaker:

We're out information when its to high school football and college

Speaker:

Speaker:

influences to give them information.

Speaker:

That's not accurate on this show.

Speaker:

We're gonna have coaches, players, trainers, and so on to interview on here

Speaker:

So I wanna be able to give these student athletes and these athletes, the power of.

The reason that it's here on this show right now is for the

There's always a story.

Speaker:

I, I don't know if there's gonna be another, another cheese room promise.

Speaker:

Oh man.

Speaker:

Hey, I said seven.

Speaker:

I said in seven.

Speaker:

I, I I'm.

Speaker:

So I'm six.

Speaker:

I'm so upset with these, with these Celtics.

Speaker:

I I'm, I don't know what's going on with smart.

Speaker:

Uh, I, I don't like smart mean he's balling.

Speaker:

I don't, he's always on the ground.

Speaker:

He's Al and he's always crying at the, at the, at the ref,

Speaker:

like, you know, call foul.

Speaker:

No brother.

Speaker:

Just, just get back and play.

Speaker:

I have problems.

Speaker:

I think he's been playing good.

Speaker:

I just think the role players or the warriors have been playing a little bit

Speaker:

better than the role players of Boston.

Speaker:

So last, last night, if Boston was gonna win a game, it was last night because

Speaker:

Steph could not hit a three for nothing.

Speaker:

Streak of hitting the three and every single game for like 200

Speaker:

games is, is done their opportunity.

Speaker:

Um, I still think seven.

Speaker:

I still think seven.

Speaker:

I, I, I, I think, I think they gonna get, I think you might be right

Speaker:

at seven, but I'm wishing for six.

Speaker:

I'm hoping they cut the jugular.

Speaker:

Oh, see, see this this week.

Speaker:

I hope they get, get em outta there, man, because I truly believe, I think

Speaker:

if the warriors can weather the storm cause buses come out like gangbusters.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

If warriors can weather the storm and somehow take the lead that

Speaker:

basket and those shots get a little bit tighter on the Boston then.

Speaker:

Cause they know they ain't got no way to go back.

Speaker:

They there's no more turning back.

Speaker:

True.

Speaker:

So that, that basket's gonna get a lot tighter them shots

Speaker:

gonna become a lot harder.

Speaker:

That focus is gonna become a lot more nervous.

Speaker:

If the warriors can somehow have a lead going into that four quarter.

Speaker:

We'll see, we'll see, they've got more.

Speaker:

They've got more, uh, young listen, what's his name?

Speaker:

Uh, the young cat pool, man.

Speaker:

That's a bad man.

Speaker:

That look I'm I'm.

Speaker:

I'm rooting for the Celtics, but pool.

Speaker:

That's a bad man right there.

Speaker:

Goodness gracious.

Speaker:

He's a new splash brother.

Speaker:

We'll see, we gotta keep it on the west coast.
