Speaker 1 (00:00):
You are listening to the Dan Patrick Show on Fox
Sports Radio.

Speaker 2 (00:04):
It's our one on this Thursday, Dan and the dan
Ets Dan Patrick Show. No hockey, no basketball, no problem,
we got a lot of things to talk about. Mad
Dog Russo will join us a little bit later on
your phone calls. Always welcome, Tyler the Operators sitting by eight,
seven to seven to three. DP Show email address Dpatdanpatrick
dot Com, Twitter handle at DP show. Good morning. If

you're watching on Peacock, thank you for downloading the app.
We say good morning to our radio affiliates around the country,
including Fox Sports Radio, iHeartRadio, ESPN Radio as well. So
the Celtics parade is still set for Friday, and the
Panthers at the Oilers Game six. Now there's not really
a headline today, but I did notice this and I

read this courtesy of ESPN. Rich Paul is the agent
to Lebron James. He's the agent to many people. He's
also dating Adele. Big deal. So he tells ESPN that
Lebron is off the idea of playing with his son.
That was a big deal. He was, you know, wanted

him to be drafted by the Lakers or was he
going to go someplace else to play with Bronnie. Now,
there's no excitement with the draft. The most exciting part
of the draft is Bronnie James. Where he goes, which
team and is he going to be a first round pick.
That's about it, because there's no consensus number one overall pick.
Nobody's going to come in, at least nobody is reportedly

going to come in and change a franchise. But with
Bronnie James. This, according to Rich Paul, Lebron is off
the idea of playing with Bronnie. If he does, he does.
But if he does and he does it, okay, there's
no deal that's guaranteed that if the Lakers draft Bronnie

at fifty five, that Lebron's going to resign. If that
was the case, I would force them to take him
at seventeen. We don't need leverage. Once again, the agent
is saying, I would force the Lakers to take Bronnie
at seventeen. Who's running the Lakers? Sounds like Rich Paul

is or Lebron. But once again, if that was the case,
and Lebron was going to stay and he needed his
son there, I would force them to draft them at
him at seventeen, the Lakers can draft Bronni and Lebron
doesn't re sign. Lebron is also not going to Phoenix
for a minimum deal. We can squash that now.

Speaker 3 (02:36):

Speaker 2 (02:36):
I did say there are other teams interested. Now he
is limiting the number of teams that Bronnie James is
going to work out for right now, Phoenix in LA.
That's it. Now, there are other teams that are interested.
According to Rich Paul, Minnesota, Dallas, and Toronto. If it's
someone else, Minnesota would love to get Bronnie, but I

don't know who their owner is going to be. Also,
the MAVs GM. His name is Nico Harrison. He's like
an uncle to Bronni, according to Rich Paul. So let
me just throw this out there, and I don't know
if it's going to stick. I don't know if it matters.

I don't have any inside news sources with this or
sources close to sources. Lebron wants to play with Kyrie again,
and probably Kyrie wants to play with Lebron again. Let's
say Dallas drafted Bronnie James once again, you got the GM. Okay,
the GM is like an uncle to Bronni. Lebron Kyrie,

so they draft him. Lebron opts out, becomes a free agent,
and then says to the Dallas Mavericks, what do you
want to pay me? I'll come in. I know sounds crazy, right,
but it's not crazy because if you're the Mavericks, and
once again Mark Cuban is involved, not the way he

was before he sold off a good portion of the Mavericks.
But if you're looking to create a reality show, and
Mark has been in the Shark Tank business for quite
some time, you're creating a show. Here. You got father,
and you got Son, you got Luca, you got Kyrie,
you got a guy who has been labeled as his uncle,

sort of an uncle to Brownie James. Okay, I mean
you got my attention with it, and I just thought,
you know, I'll spin that here and see if anybody
you know bites on it. Yes, Paul, let's.

Speaker 4 (04:43):
Make it an actual show. In the next episode of
Shark Tank, Lebron James Senior Lebron James ter they walk
out with the music playing, the doors open up. We
have an idea for you. How about a family package
deal to come to Dallas. I did read some quotes
from Rich Paul. You know, in the the past few months,
I think the coverage of Bronnie James has been a
little unfair. The stories are he won't visit this place,

he won't visit this place, and it makes it sound
like he's too good for these places or no.

Speaker 2 (05:12):
But this is Rich Paul, right, is telling these teams
Ronnie's just doing with his agent is telling him.

Speaker 4 (05:18):
Yeah, but Bronnie is getting the criticism from the average
sports fan who reads this story. I read a little background.
Rich Paul has been doing this for years, especially with
second round draft picks. You know, he's taken players like
Taylor Horton Tucker and he finds certain places that are
interested them and pre works the draft, the contract, the
elements of it. And he says he's done this for
about six or seven other players, just not famous players.

Speaker 2 (05:40):
Well, he did it to Darius Garland and he was
the number five pick in twenty nineteen. So he's had players,
a couple of first round players that he's done this too.
But he's basically saying these are the teams he's going
to work out for now. He did go to the
pre draft combine. Everybody got to see him. You want
to be able to talk to him. I think that's
really the key. And he seems like a level headed kid.

It seems like, you know, he was well raised, seems humble,
It doesn't say much, doesn't do many interviews. But I
think this is a situation where if you're going to
look at the entire picture, Lebron his role he could
play with Kyrie. I don't know what they could offer him.
First of all, i'd have to get you know, Windy

or Woe John or Sham's to be able to say
Dallas could offer this. But if he's a free agent,
what could you pay him? And if Dallas would pick him?
Dallas has his second round pick. I don't think they
have a first round pick. Do they marv second?

Speaker 5 (06:39):
Right now?

Speaker 6 (06:40):
Okay, yeah, I think it's I think it's like late
second round they have.

Speaker 2 (06:43):
Well, that'd be odd if the Lakers passed on him
at what fifty five and then the MAVs took him
soon after that. But okay, I know it sounds crazy,
but it's just more of the It could be based
in reality because Rich Paul is saying that these are
teams that are interested. You have Minnesota, Dallas in Toronto.

So if it's not the Lakers, it will be somebody else.
Minnesota would love to get Bronny, but right now their
ownership is in a state of flux. And then he
says the mAbs GM Nico Harrison is like an uncle
to Bronni. If the Lakers don't take him at fifty five,
Dallas would take him at fifty eight and give him

a guaranteed deal. Well, now it gets interesting there, because
if you're Lebron, you're not going to win a title
with the Lakers. This team just went to the Western Conference.
They went to the NBA Finals. I should say they
went to the NBA Finals. You want to play with Kyrie?

Sound like Kyrie was trying to play with Lebron.

Speaker 7 (07:52):
I don't know.

Speaker 2 (07:55):
Maybe it's far fetched. Maybe somebody's going to go that's
not base in reality because of this, Yes, Mars.

Speaker 8 (08:01):
From a basketball standpoint, I hate to be realistic, but
from a basketball standpoint, it's another guy that needs the
ball a lot.

Speaker 2 (08:09):
Why are you a buzzkill? Couldn't you let me run
with this for more than nine minutes?

Speaker 5 (08:15):
You know what? Lebron's the Mavericks. Let's go, let's go.

Speaker 2 (08:18):
Yeah, this is where Lebron becomes the ultimate team player.
What do you need me to do? End of his career?
Oh my gosh, did you see Lebron sacrifice?

Speaker 5 (08:31):
Who's the biggest star in Dallas? Yeah, Dak or Lebron?

Speaker 2 (08:35):
Oh my god? Can you imagine social media? If Lebron
ended up in Dallas and then he goes to the
Cowboys games.

Speaker 4 (08:41):
They'd shut down the company in Bristol, move everything down
to down.

Speaker 2 (08:44):
ESPN, ESPN Dallas. Yeah, they would just have to relocate everybody.

Speaker 8 (08:49):
Yeah, that's funny, but it's pretty true.

Speaker 5 (08:52):
Yes, look ahead the heat index at HISPN.

Speaker 2 (08:55):
All I know is Greenie and Steve and A are probably going,
why didn't we come up with that? Why didn't we
get that angle today on Get Up or First Take?
You know, Skip's not on the air for another twenty minutes,
so he might run with this Lebron going to the
MAVs and Bronny going to the Maps. But if the
Lakers would pass on him, and and you know, once again,

we don't know who's going to be the coach. I'm
assuming it's JJ Reddick. But and could you imagine if
you know the Lakers say to Jj Reddick, We're not
taking Bronnie. What that does to the podcast then? But
you know, stranger things, crazier things, and you know, the
I guess the big question mark is Lebron's future. I

know he wants to stay in LA. But if you
get this opportunity to play on a better team and
your son is going to be there, and they give
him a guaranteed contract and you play for two more years,
is that crazy? And once again, the reality part of
this is the amount of money, because the Lakers are

going to give Lebron what he wants whatever, fifty million,
sixty million, who knows. But I don't know if Dallas
can do anything that is kind of in the ballpark,
and maybe they can. But as Rich Paul, Lebron's agent says, hey,
he's not going to take the league minimum to go
play for Phoenix, but league minimum to play for Phoenix.

If they draft your son and you have a quality
team already in place, there what's left for Lebron? Two things,
play with his son and win another championship. Those are
the two things that are left. Legacy is cemented. Okay,
you know where you are on the list of all
time grades That might change a little bit if you

want another title in some people's eyes, but statistically speaking,
nothing is going to change. He's the greatest, statistically the greatest.
But you get one more title there, and in the
process you get to play with your son. Yeah, Paul, I.

Speaker 4 (11:02):
Have an awkward curve ball. Lebron James has another son
who's currently in high school?

Speaker 3 (11:06):

Speaker 2 (11:06):

Speaker 4 (11:07):
Is he a pretty good basketball player? I haven't really
checked it out.

Speaker 2 (11:10):
I think he has well. Size wise, he's more like Lebron.
I think he's about six eight Bryce.

Speaker 4 (11:15):
Yeah, Okay, Bryce, What if Lebron maneuvers it? So he
plays a season with his Bronnie James and the other
son goes, hey, what about me?

Speaker 2 (11:25):
I don't know if Lebron he'd have to Well, Bryce
I think is a junior.

Speaker 4 (11:31):
Yeah, not that long. Let's start it now. Let's be
way ahead of this.

Speaker 2 (11:36):
Okay, So Bryce and Bronni to the Mavericks. Do you
have to be nineteen?

Speaker 4 (11:42):
Chris Paul can find a way around here.

Speaker 2 (11:43):
Yeah, somehow Rich Baull find a loophole here just less
than two years. Yeah, let's get on that one.

Speaker 4 (11:49):
Let's move past Bronnie James and get on Bryce James
Lebron sticking around to play with him.

Speaker 2 (11:54):

Speaker 2 (12:54):
All right? We can save it.

Speaker 6 (12:55):
I want to come back.

Speaker 2 (12:56):
Yes. By the way, sources close to me, tell me
big wiffle ball game yesterday in the field house. It
was Seaton and Fritzy versus V. A couple of backroom guys, Dylan,
Dylan and Ray Picture Day. Ray you mean show hey

o TOADI Oh, I'm sorry. Well, bat's left handed.

Speaker 6 (13:25):
Not only is a bat left handed, he cleans up,
absolutely crushes. He's a dominant picture best fielder in the OTADI. Yeah,
it's a real thing.

Speaker 2 (13:34):
Okay, do we have video of this? Because nobody's gonna
believe Okay, so can we get video? Do we have video?
I have I have cameras all over the plays here
with somebody videotaping you guys playing whiffleball yesterday. Because I
hear that Todd was incredible.

Speaker 6 (13:54):
Todd nearly called a walk off home Oh my god,
he went, Babe Brewers at least ay and well there's
a rule then if you hit it through the open door,
it's an inside the park home run. And he nearly
nearly called that shot.

Speaker 2 (14:07):
Okay, when we come back, I need to find out
if we have video. Nobody's gonna believe this. Although remember
when Todd against Mitch Williams and he had a base
hit off Mitch Williams, and Mitch came into the studio
through a fastball Todd and he took it right over
his noggin. So I've seen it once and I know

about the Little League legacy, so I need to see
video here and we'll come up with our poll question

Speaker 2 (15:25):
Didn't Lebron go see Kendrick Lamar. Who's that last night?

Speaker 3 (15:28):

Speaker 2 (15:29):
It was Oh he's siding with Kendrick Lamar over Drake.

Speaker 8 (15:33):
At the Forum. Okay, the Great Night for Los Angeles. Okay,
Kendrick hates Drake? Yes official? Does Drake officially hate Kendrick Lamar?

Speaker 5 (15:44):
He should have the last night?

Speaker 2 (15:48):
Why that Lebron went well?

Speaker 8 (15:51):
He should hate Kendrick. He should hate Lebron because Kendrick
was pulling no punches on him last night in front
of twenty thousand people.

Speaker 6 (15:59):
If I'm Drake, I do my best to let this go.

Speaker 2 (16:04):
He's not winning right now. He's now like, it's not close.
They're not neck and neck. No, Okay.

Speaker 5 (16:12):
Russell Westbrook and DeMar Derozen were there last night. They
got on.

Speaker 8 (16:15):
Stage whoa with Kendrick Okay, James Harden was there.

Speaker 2 (16:18):

Speaker 8 (16:19):
I was like, oh, this is not good for you
because drake'shusy, the NBA guy. Yeah, and all these guys
no good.

Speaker 7 (16:27):

Speaker 4 (16:28):
But Drake can whip up the Canadian rap community on
his side.

Speaker 2 (16:31):

Speaker 4 (16:31):
And they don't play you don't want to mess with them.
They drive right by you. They don't do a drive by.
They drive right past you nicely and wave. Canadian rappers
seem like the nicest rappers historically.

Speaker 2 (16:43):
I don't want to rile that community today, that's true,
not today.

Speaker 6 (16:46):
I didn't see snow at the Kendrick Lamar show.

Speaker 4 (16:51):
Get them All Together?

Speaker 2 (16:52):
Yes, yes, they don't have rap outs.

Speaker 10 (16:54):
They have like rap disagreements and can they were just
don't really play the same way.

Speaker 2 (16:58):
All right? Poll questions today? Yeah, what do we have
there towd?

Speaker 5 (17:04):

Speaker 10 (17:04):
The first one was if you were going to go
see your favorite team at their celebration. Obviously the Celtics
have their parade tomorrow. Would you rather go to the
parade and to be in the middle of that crowd?
Is that more important to you? Or just kind of
relax and watch it on TV?

Speaker 2 (17:19):
Okay, how about you tell me what you would want.

Speaker 10 (17:23):
The third church actually was neither we won the title
and that's all I need. You don't watch it on
TV or go to I would watch it on TV,
I think, cause if some of that had a ticket
to a Super Bowl parade that didn't go, son't know
where I'm at.

Speaker 2 (17:35):
That is true. Von Miller invited you to the Broncos
Super Bowl parade.

Speaker 10 (17:39):
Just couldn't be bothered, and then my son wasn't advised.

Speaker 2 (17:41):
So I'm going, yes, Paul.

Speaker 4 (17:45):
Championship parades is a bit of a young person's activity.
You know, when you're like twenty two, you don't really.

Speaker 5 (17:51):
Have a career.

Speaker 4 (17:52):
You get the bros together and you go to the
parade early, you get roughed up, you lose, somebody like
someone doesn't make it back. You should go once in
your life to your home team's parade.

Speaker 2 (18:04):
Well, they've had quite a few victory parades in Boston
here over the line. Schedule them. Yes, yeah, who's going
to win a title this year? The Celtics? Okay, what
else do you have time?

Speaker 10 (18:15):
The other thought was if my championship ring had an
error on it, I would And the reason I bring
this up Travis Kelce's Super Bowl ring, and I guess
maybe all the chiefs they had a mistake. The Dolphins
listed as the number seven seed inside their ring when
actually they were the six seed. It seems like a
trivial thing, but if you want everything accurate in your
Super Bowl championship ring. So my question is if your
championship bring had an error on it.

Speaker 5 (18:35):
You would keep it? Not a big deal makes it
more unique as.

Speaker 10 (18:38):
What Travis Kelcey says, or give it back and ask
for a mistake free replacement.

Speaker 2 (18:43):
Everybody's ring had the same typo on.

Speaker 10 (18:45):
It, I would think it wouldn't just be Travis.

Speaker 2 (18:47):
No, it's not just his.

Speaker 5 (18:48):
So is that like a big deal?

Speaker 10 (18:49):
Do you want to have everything accurate forever?

Speaker 5 (18:51):
Or does who cares?

Speaker 10 (18:53):
It's somehow special you need to, like a baseball card
that has like some kind of weird thing on it.

Speaker 2 (18:56):
I don't care. I wouldn't care and be like I like,
if we won the Sports Emmy and they misspelled something,
would you care?

Speaker 10 (19:07):
I would kind of. I'm kind of atelect that I
want everything to be accurate. They're gonna spend all that
money on diamonds and jewels and everything, you know, I
want everything to be exactly.

Speaker 2 (19:14):
As I feel bad for whoever's job was to proofread this,
and I don't know if they still have that job
as the proofreader and who sold them out? Uh wait
a minute, Dolphins were the sixth seed? Yeah seed.

Speaker 6 (19:30):
I think sometimes when you get into different industries, you
expect people to be sports fans and do that and
they're not. They're just I'm just the guy or the
person that makes the rings.

Speaker 2 (19:41):
Well, how many typos were there on Kobe's statue. I
think there are a few mistakes there. Yeah, yeah, yeah,
but you still have to have somebody whose job is
to yeah, let me see it. Yeah, yeap, yep, yep,
that checks out. Yeah, Paul, I.

Speaker 4 (19:57):
Gotta tell you, I'm looking at this differently. Maybe rings
are too bad big when you could have the individual
seatings of all your opponents elicted in your ring. Okay, fire,
I just want to give me like twenty diamonds, maybe
my name on the side, our record, what super Bowl was,
and let's call it a day. If I'm hey, what
was our win loss percentage in the division?

Speaker 6 (20:16):
A little restraint? We're calling for it right now.

Speaker 4 (20:18):
Brevity? Okay, wow, ring brevity?

Speaker 2 (20:20):
What a thought?

Speaker 5 (20:21):
It is a little much. Didn't we win seventeen thirteen?

Speaker 3 (20:23):
Week for?

Speaker 5 (20:23):
Do you really have to go to the home?

Speaker 2 (20:26):
It's called a little ring strainth is what that ring strength?
What it is?

Speaker 4 (20:31):
And twenty nine diamonds thirty eight rubies. It's fourteen point
eight carrot's worth of gems.

Speaker 2 (20:36):
Yeah, but they did you know, now you see these
teams that they took us up on our suggestion, and
you have a ring within the ring, so that then
you can actually wear that out and it's not one
of those you know, looks like you got an alarm
clock on your hand.

Speaker 4 (20:50):
Right, it's a bit of a pop top situation. Yes,
it's like it folds open and then you could take
out a secondary ring.

Speaker 2 (20:57):
Yeah, and that's what we said. A lot of these
players go, you can't wear it out. And then we
suggested you have a ring within a ring. And then
I think was it last year?

Speaker 5 (21:08):
Was it?

Speaker 2 (21:09):
The Nuggets were the first team, I think, but they
put the ring in the ring and I was like, yeah,
I love that. Just making suggestions for the rest of
the sports world. Oh, by the way, we came up
with something years ago. I think it might have been
five or six years ago, and the NFL is talking

about that, and that is a separate salary cap for quarterbacks.
Tom Pelisero, our good buddy NFL network, said, hey, you
got owners talking about this. We'll talk a little bit
more about this, because this is what we said. You know,
strategy wise, you're going to get this amount of money
for your quarterbacks, and all your quarterbacks are going to

be under that salary cap. And then the rest of
the money. Let's say you said sixty million dollars for
my quarterback, and then you get one hundred and eighty
million for the rest of your roster. But you have
to spend a certain amount of money on your quarterbacks.
And you have to have a certain amount of money
spent because the Bengals famously were cheap that they didn't

spend like they were at the bottom many many years ago,
and you know, you had agents, and you know other
teams had a problem with this. They were making more
money by spending less money on their players. You have
to have a minimum. You're going to have a maximum.
Now I can have quarterbacks. My quarterback room is making
sixty million dollars. Let's let's just throw that an arbitrary number.

I have one hundred and eighty million. Let's say the
salary caps to forty. Now all of a sudden, I
can pay Dak Prescott and then Trey Lance, and then
if I have a third quarterback on there, So now
I can keep CD Lamb and now I can keep
Micah Parsons. Because they're the team that's really going to
be hit by this. You're going to have three guys

two that are going to make at least thirty million
dollars or they want to make thirty million, and I
can pay Dak as well, plus you can. I think
teams should be rewarded if you draft somebody to be
able to keep them. I like that. I like the continuity.
I'm not big on guys, you know, changing teams just
because they have to chase a you know, pay day,

Like Tyreek Hill would still be on the Chiefs if
this happened. And I think it's a win win for
everybody here. Quarterbacks are going to get paid.

Speaker 7 (23:23):

Speaker 2 (23:24):
You might have agents who say, wait a minute, are
you capping what the quarterback can make? And in essence
you are. I mean you're capping what other people can
make as well. But with the quarterback, you have your
your own salary cap. And if you want to spend
fifty eight million on your quarterback and then you have
a quarterback making a million and another one making a million,

that's your sixty million dollars. I think it'd be and
I get it, you know, because then you're going to
be Let's say I got Baker Mayfield for thirty five million.
Now would I be able to take some of my
salary cap money from the quarterbacks if I only spend
forty eight million leftovers. Yes, No, we're okay, r separate cap.

I'm just I got questions to ask, That's all. That's
But Tom Pelso has this there. Certainly there's certainly been
discussion within the league among certain owners about the idea
of a quarterback cap that at some point you don't
want quarterback numbers to go over a certain percentage of
your salary cap. Now, I said this on the Rich

Eisend Show. To my knowledge, that hasn't really gained traction,
in part because so many teams have paid their quarterbacks.
I understand that. But down the road, like year twenty
twenty seven, this is going to happen, or utel teams,
this is going to happen. Then you could get quarterbacks

that are going to be signing up sooner than that,
maybe for less to get you know, a better deal
than I got to fit in under the quarterback salary cap.
But we brought this up six years ago. Man, it
takes the NFL a long time to act on all
of our suggestions.

Speaker 3 (25:08):
You should listen to the show.

Speaker 2 (25:09):
If the commissioner would come on, I would be able
to help him. Maybe this is why he doesn't come on. Yes, Paul,
I think it'd be interesting with teams. Let's say you
spend all your money on Patrick Mahomes and he's making
fifty nine and a half million dollars and you have
five hundred thousand dollars to spend on the quarterback.

Speaker 4 (25:26):
Because I'm being a little facetious, but let's say you're
approaching the cap, the hard cap for the quarterback position,
and now the Kansaity Chiefs would have only two million
to spend on a backup, which means you're getting a
low end backup the best team in football.

Speaker 2 (25:39):
Yeah, but then you would have to say to Patrick Mahomes,
you're gonna have to take a little less if you
want to have a quality backup quarterback here. Okay, yes
see see.

Speaker 6 (25:50):
Like I get the idea of it, but I like
seeing a team get good and they give their quarterback
a fortune and you're like, well, they're not keeping every
You're gonna have to lose that wide receiver that caught
you know, one hundred balls from or whatever.

Speaker 7 (26:05):
You know.

Speaker 6 (26:05):
I like that, How are they going to keep this
team together when you need to sign your edge and
the wide receiver and the quarterback and the tight end.

Speaker 2 (26:14):
But I don't think it should be the disparity between
everybody and your quarterback. I mean, it's really really prohibited,
and I think that that's a problem. I mean, Trevor
Lawrence making that kind of money as opposed to these
other players, and they could be really good at their position,

but Tyreek Hill would have stayed with the Chiefs, And
I don't know, I think you should be rewarded if
you drafted these players, like the Bengals with T Higgins
and Jamar Chase, you want to keep them, and you
want to pay Joe Burrow whatever is commensurate to being
a really good quarterback.

Speaker 6 (26:52):
Yes, But then that sounds more like incentivizing players to stay,
similar to how the NBA does. You are still with
the team that drafted you. You are eligible for a
Supermax now because you got you know, you hit all
of these different milestones or all of these markers.

Speaker 2 (27:08):
That okay with that, Yeah, I don't mind that. I'm
okay with that. Yeah. I mean ultimately, the NFL wants parody.
So however you get there with the and and look,
I like when there's a dominant team. I like when
there's a dynasty. I like when there's the team you
got to go and get and you got to beat
those guys. But the NFL wants parody, Yeah, Pauling.

Speaker 4 (27:28):
Yeah, I wonder what the NFL, if you ask them
off the record, want Where teams change players all the time.
The only really status quo is the quarterback position. You
keep the quarterback and everyone else is rotating. Because there's
a lot of coverage off that. We spent a lot
of time in free agency covering team players changing Where
can they go? Where should they go? If you had
incentives to have players stand teams way longer, would that

be good for the league coverage wise? It'd be good
for the local fans because they're you know, Michael Parsons
stays for ten years and Scarett stays with the Browns
for ten years instead of jumping around. Yeah, I don't
know what's about.

Speaker 2 (28:03):
It doesn't feel like the NFL is losing viewership or coverage,
you know, I don't can you add to it? And
that's what the NFL would want to know. That's why
playing games around the world. You know, the Steelers want
to make Ireland their their country, like they're home away
from home, like they want to be there the chiefs

with Germany. You're seeing the you know Jags in London.
You want to own something there that's growing the product there.
How do you grow the product? How do you get
more people talking about it? I don't know. Just the
fact that they are talking about it, I think is interesting.
You know that's interesting. But here's the problem I have,

and Pellalsaro points this out. At some point, the owners
don't want quarterback numbers to go over a certain percentage
of your salary cap. That's where agents of the quarterbacks
who are going to make most of their money are
going to push back on that. But I still think
if you have a reasonable salary cap for a quarterback
and then you have money for everybody else, maybe it's

a win win. Let me see Tyson in Colorado. Hey Tyson, Hey.

Speaker 11 (29:14):
Dan, thanks for the call. Yeah, I just had a
question with all of coaches getting fired so quickly these
days in college and a bit of a mister way,
are there any coaching jobs left that are coaching destinations
that nobody would turn down?

Speaker 2 (29:32):
Well? Are you talking about college or pro?

Speaker 7 (29:36):
College and pro?

Speaker 9 (29:37):

Speaker 12 (29:37):
What's the coaching destination that somebody would want to go to?

Speaker 7 (29:41):

Speaker 12 (29:41):
Now, everybody used to say, if the Lakers off for
you a job, you're taking it, And then Dan Heurnley
turned it down. Is there a coaching destination that nobody
would turn down?

Speaker 11 (29:52):

Speaker 2 (29:53):
I wouldn't turn down the Kansas City Chiefs job. I
think it really on what's my talent there. I wouldn't
want the Patriots job. But if I said that five
years ago, then you might say that's crazy. But I
wouldn't want to follow Belichick and it's not a good roster.
Do I want Dallas? No? No, I would hate to

live minute to minute, day to day, month to month,
year to year. Am I going to get fired? You
know what did Jerry say at a press conference? The Lakers?
It's not a great destination. Now it is La, it's
the Lakers. But I got Lebron at the end of
his career, like, I don't know who we are, what's

our identity? And the fact that you were going after
Dan Hurley, because you're saying to Dan Hurley, this is
a big picture job. This isn't two years, And normally
it feels like all of these jobs are two years.
He got two years, and even Darvin Ham went to
the Western Conference finals next year. He gets fired. Monty
Williams lasted one year in Detroit. For God's sakes, they

found somebody who actually wanted to coach the Pistons, and
then they fired him after one year. Although he may
not have wanted to stay at least that's some of
the talk that he was. You know, he had signed
a long term deal here, and maybe he was having
second thoughts on that. But how many great jobs Packer's
job would be great? I wouldn't. I wouldn't want to

manage the Yankees, especially when George Steinbrenner was alive, because
Aaron Boone would not have kept his job. He would
have been fired, maybe re hired and fired again. But
you know, the Dodgers job, like Dave Roberts, has to win.
You have to win. There's no excuse. You have to win.

And if you don't, even when you win, you can't
even celebrate. It's like, yeah, okay, yes, yes, Mark.

Speaker 5 (31:53):
What about UCLA basketball?

Speaker 2 (31:56):
No, it just doesn't have the magic that it once had,
even Duke, I mean John Shire. Okay, Plus, these guys
are there for one year. Now, the days where I
got a guy and he stayed for three or four years.
Heck yeah, but that doesn't happen anymore. Yeah, pulling.

Speaker 4 (32:18):
I agree. At college basketball and football, there's probably a
half a dozen jobs that will always be prime jobs
because of the intensity of the fan base.

Speaker 2 (32:25):
Like is Alabama a great job?

Speaker 5 (32:27):

Speaker 4 (32:27):
Right now that fan base is big and getting bigger.

Speaker 2 (32:30):
Yeah, but Saban got he owed at him because all
they cared about, like they wouldn't show up for games
that you know, we're off the SEC schedule.

Speaker 4 (32:39):
I'll say, it's a prime spotlight job. You know where
you're in the spotlight. Notre Dame football, still, Kentucky basketball,
that fan base, they will never go away. Almost any
SEC football school I would put in there, Michigan football,
that's a I think the college fan bases are more
steady and true and make the job better.

Speaker 2 (32:58):
But what about the pros? How many great jobs are there?
And if I took out the roster and you were
just coaching that team, how many great jobs are.

Speaker 4 (33:11):
There where it's that honor to coach franchise?

Speaker 2 (33:14):
Yes, like Green Bay would be an honor to coach
green Bay, Dallas would just be I mean it would
be really, really, really tough. No matter what your roster is.
I mean, you still got that owner there. Yes, yes,
time I put the Steelers in there. Yeah, yeah, yeah,
that's a good call. That's a good call. All right,

let me take a break. I got phone calls to
get to and uh we'll update the poll results or
at least settle on a poll. Chris mad Dog Russo
coming up in about a half hour from now. We're

poll question? Todd?

Speaker 5 (34:53):
I think we did.

Speaker 10 (34:54):
Okay, we're gonna maybe go with the parade Celtics one.
If your fracus in the parade, what are you gonna do?
You're gonna go watch from homeward neither?

Speaker 2 (35:01):
Okay, was there anything else?

Speaker 6 (35:03):
We're gonna put up the chief's ring question?

Speaker 5 (35:07):

Speaker 6 (35:07):
We also have one here from PAULI. If you're going
to a baseball game, it's where do you want to sit?
Seats behind home plate? Bleacher? Outfield seats are up in
a suite.

Speaker 4 (35:18):
M I've never sat directly behind home plate like those
you know, first ten seats. Yeah, I've never sat there.
That seems great because of the net. You're not really worried.
But is that the best seat?

Speaker 2 (35:31):
Well? You do hear a lot like it's it's a
it's a different visual experience because you can hear conversations,
you can hear the umpire, you can hear a manager
yell players in the on deck circle it and you're
hearing that you know that ball hit the catcher's mitt
yest we.

Speaker 6 (35:51):
I sat behind home plate once with you, years and
years and years ago. We were in San Francisco and
you took me to a Giants game and we were
right behind home late and Barry Zito was pitching, and
it was one of the coolest things I've ever seen
because his curveball was like I was like.

Speaker 2 (36:07):
Oh, that's what it is. Yeah, that's that's a twelve
to six curveball.

Speaker 6 (36:10):
And it was every bit of that twelve to six
drop and it was like, Wow, now I get it.
Holy crap. The TV just as spectacular as it looked,
So you do get a totally different view of the game,
especially when somebody who has a pitch like that is throwing.

Speaker 2 (36:25):
I sat behind home plate when Doc Gooden faced the
then Montreal Expos and to be able to hear a
pitch and then see that breaking ball, and I think
he was opposite Denny Martinez, eld Presidente, and it was
a wonderful. It was an afternoon game and I think

it was in May. I just remember Doc was bringing
noise man and just to hear that and then you
hear the umpire hey a, you know, and it's just
like boom boom, boom, boom boom, hitting the catcher's mitt. Yes, Tom,
I think.

Speaker 10 (36:59):
Sitting behind home was something to experience at least once.
But for me, for the overall view of the game,
for the nine innings or it goes extracts, I'd rather
be like down the first baseline in City. I'd rather
be between home and first or like right by first base.

Speaker 2 (37:11):
That wasn't That wasn't an option. It was bleachers, sweet
or behind home. It should be an option.

Speaker 4 (37:18):
Well, yeah, you know, I'm gonna disagree with Todd on
this one. Growing up going to White Sox and Cubs games,
we didn't have any dough so we always sat in
the bleachers back when they were cheap. The first time
I went to a Cub game and I sat like
down the third base line, just past the dugout, and
this is before the netting or there's tons of netting.
Those foul balls would be screaming and I have no

athletic or catching ability. I found a disco. Now, I
was like twelve, but I found it very disconcerting to
be down the line.

Speaker 2 (37:46):
Yeah, that's where you can't be on your phone because
you're gonna get something up side of your head.

Speaker 11 (37:50):

Speaker 6 (37:51):
Absolutely, that's where you're gonna get a foul ball, though
will some people will You may get a ricochet off
somebody's head.

Speaker 2 (37:57):
Hey, I got a foul ball, Alan, Atlanta, Good morning, Al.
What's on your mind today?

Speaker 7 (38:04):
Morning? Dan? Three quick things and then to what I
actually called for.

Speaker 2 (38:09):
Are you okay? El?

Speaker 7 (38:11):
Yeah, I'm good. I just didn't go to sleep last
night and had a long night of riding. But first, Fritzy,
the answer is neither. Because I've had to watch them
win Cherby and sit since two thousand and one. I
don't want to watch them win another one. Paully, sounds
like you decided what the ring design should be. If
you guys ever went a sports at me and Dan,

you don't want to follow Belichick, but you want to
follow Andy Reid like I would think that was just
as hard. And now what I actually told about what
is stopping a team in the late first round or
early second round in the NBA draft from drafting Brownie
and then holding him for the fifty to fifty pick

and some money considerations from the Lakers.

Speaker 2 (39:00):
So you're gonna hold Bronni for ransom, You're gonna take
him and then you're gonna say to the Lakers if
you want him, I guess sure if somebody wants to
try to leverage Bronnie and get something from the Lakers
and the fifty fifth overall pick, that's the only interesting
part of the draft is where Bronnie goes. And then

are there dominoes that fall after that? Chris and Maryland? Hi, Chris,
what's on your mind?

Speaker 7 (39:29):

Speaker 11 (39:29):

Speaker 7 (39:29):
What's going on?

Speaker 2 (39:30):
Hey bun Hey?

Speaker 7 (39:31):
Quick question. I try to call them the other day,
but I'm just sort of curious.

Speaker 11 (39:35):
How hard is it from like a production perspective to
cover a golf tournament in comparison to say, like a
basketball game or a baseball game or a football game.

Speaker 7 (39:44):
I'm just sort of curious, you know, like what the
producer has to do?

Speaker 1 (39:47):
Would you have to do?

Speaker 7 (39:48):
How much jumping around there is? I I was wondering
all these things watching the US Open. So that's why
I called them.

Speaker 2 (39:53):
Well, you have a director who has a screen full
of monitors there, you have cameras, and what the director
will do or producer, they'll tell the announcer. So Dan
Hicks is your lead play by play voice for NBC Golf.
You'll have Tommy Roy who's in the truck. He will say,
going at fifteen Tiger with Birdie, and let's go out

to fifteen Tiger is eyeing a Birdie putt, and then
you'll see what happens there. Then you react to it
while they're reacting to it or the crowd noise. Then
you'll say to seventeen, let's go join, you know, Peter Jacobson, seventeen. Yeah,
I got John ram here and he's he's in a
mess right now. He's in the bunker. So that's how

it is. You just you bounce around. Somebody's always in
your ear to let you know, because they don't have
a bank of monitors there. They might have two monitors
there in front of them and to be able to
get something that they're going to show you, like a
preset that's already been recorded, and then they might show
that to you at some point and then you'll have

your live monitor there. But you know, I mean, it's
pretty easy if you have a great director, and NBC
certainly has that, and you just bounce around there to there,
to there, to there, go to commercial break, come back,
leaderboard here, beauty shot, and back in the action. And
sometimes they make it sound easier than what it is,

because you have to have that. It has to be fluid,
and sometimes it's not. But your director can help you
immensely by talking to you in your ear. Therefore you know,
oh this a birdie pud coming up. One hour in
the books, two more to go. Chris mad Dog Russo
will join us. Hope you'll stay with us next hour
