Yeah what's up everybody it's dirt when I thank you for takes some time out to listen to be podcast of our show brought to you by less Schwab tires doing the right thing since 1952. Time for a new injection as they say in tents and wall Friday edition. Dirt and spray they had pride they have talent. They had had been to Asia. Durbin spray it and Flint mall Friday eleven award winning high from series for your football viewing party series cafe in pies fresh local delicious students. Pray Don and eighty Sosa them.

No it's not Trump's birthday even though he's the 45 present United States now is one in meter Johnson's birthday hey look at that I made it did on my birthday and I get birthday to you buddy thanks man I appreciate that I get to share my day with Allan Donald. Yeah what's that like you. I thought about this this morning and I got to wrestle chuckle out of it. And I think you're older brother would appreciate this OK when you were born. You basically stole the spotlight from your brother he was he was the guy in the house you know he was the sun right. And and you had to come along and I decide been kicking ass and taking names ever sat you've been reigning supreme for a long time that I have. Today you officially been trumped I I have officially been trumped nobody really cares about you literally and figuratively everybody's either stacked thirsty folks that were making America great again. Or thinking that the country will come to an end at some point in the next four years there's no in between and that one in the the other thing too that they kind of hit me square in the face this morning does waking up and get now abandoned because everybody LU was it like the FaceBook notification stuff for people right now on your wall. I think there's a lot of people staying off FaceBook today because they don't wanna deal with the political months old you think they're saying offers is going on in -- their political stand I if this was not my birthday I would be it's firmly off of FaceBook today firmly on rewiring on FaceBook on your birthday was that I don't that means well I mean I'm clicking the I'm getting all these notification because people are writing on my wall but it today wasn't my birthday and I didn't get eight since I was not be going on FaceBook and he's just wait 24 hours and look like a hundred accumulate make yourself feel good that it that is true that if somebody cinders birthday it's got to be fake news has come full circle right there. I get this is one of them dead distinctions of having birthday on January 20 and always falls on inauguration day you either every four years or eight years my birthday does well I'm. And I came into the office today and I turn this on because I actually missed the lives speech ended up being able the re watching it thank god the Internet but I miss the live inauguration speech by trump in this is happening. It's I mean even for people that voted for is it still little I don't know weird feeling seeing him up there he is now the freaked out president of the United States of America very bizarre O world feeling remarkable idea very bizarre world I just seeing all this substance because I went yeah I missed the speech this morning I didn't see it and now finally got CNN on and they got to do all this pomp and circumstance going on yes it just yet had it does not feel like real life. Yeah I I I don't know I've I've I've watched a timely coverage of because we were show prep and it was on TV. On and I also tank I I feel like I have a decent hold. On the cut our eons we have Bobby ceiling a lot of fuel Portland are gonna lean left. Very strongly but Charles got a lot of people that are from. Other places are from eastern organ or southern or again they're gonna registering voters sure yeah and lomb on par with my party line and a I voted for him. But it's still like a weird feeling seeing this guy who. Two years ago I remember being at my mom's house because we had a family member over there hanging out they just they were sick for awhile and they got better. And like we were. Drinking beer and we are watching Celebrity Apprentice and he was the host it up and now he's the united states of America's like he's our president is the president man it's so that was a weird thought to me is like two years ago. Or may it was three weeks we wind or three years yes watch this guy am reality TV host to show it right. He was like they'll bottom all the jokes it's like the presidential dinner where they correspondents' dinner all the correspondents dinner. And now he is legit well the 45 president of the United States just. It's unchartered water for all of us because you never this is never happened before that we've never had a president that didn't at least at some point serve in government are working their way up in some way shape performance of congressmen or senator or governor sub mayor or something and you would notice criticize this is under Charlie never had this before I is honestly never happen because I had summoning up system is 700 years ago. How will get out here over talk in nineteen old can get that 1970 who would it have been I don't know I don't OK let let's stick with modern times yet George Washington didn't hold any elected office I don't believe was leading us into drinking or yeah before he was before he was president but no in modern times added according in my memory no line on the we've ever had somebody. That is never how I I would be highly suspicious of we've ever had a president it's never held public office there was one guy just read this and Malcolm Gladwell book. The book is blink I'm finished yet and I was just reading about this I think it was Taft if I'm not mistaken. Taft was found by somebody and Taft and basically I'm pretty sure it's staffed a double checked it. And they basically in the book these that he was found by somebody and encouraged to run an office. Because he was so good looking. Now doesn't that doesn't surprise me qualification eyes not because he showed that he can be a leader of people yeah the guy just saw I was like dude. You're really good looking you should run and basically America fell four they voted for him. Based entirely off of they thought he was just yeah it's really good looking somebody's at the Reagan first of Reagan was governor of California and yet they're delighted latest roster Dwight. If you are god god help you today. I've already had it from two sides I've had the oh my god. We are still asked and then I've had the other side of well it's it's always person that doesn't admit that they voted form a basically telling you they voted formed by what they say yeah and it was. You know I heard he's actually really good grandparents father. On top of being a billionaire business owner is equality gap just started like I mean at I didn't solicit any like K what do you think of him it was like. Have you heard that behind the scenes he's actually not that bad. And I'm like I just wanted to turn around to go you voted for did you it's okay to tell me I'm not gonna judge when somebody said Taft was governor of the philippines' secretary of war Supreme Court justice maybe it wasn't happy even so I apologize for that can be I even old Taft had a I got to look at who I just read like it's pretty funny Eisenhower's a double but I didn't know I knew we was in general obviously I didn't know feet held an elected office after being in general before he became president Lyndon. But yeah this is and in terms of not having any connection with United States of America military. Or politically and this is that's what we mean in unchartered waters I also. I also believe and I I really do you buy into this. Twitter is a lot of fun today for people that did didn't vote for trump they're having a lot of fun with means. There's pictures of you know Obama's inauguration turnout vs trumps inauguration turnout which is somebody's some dubs a chip Kelly's organ and Dotson. Vs mark Calvert organ at odds in addition of this is just thick huge difference of people that showed up for one vs the other. Twitters out of a lot of fun with this and I'm enjoying myself. I also want a caution people this is exactly why he won. This is seriously exactly why you want we all get on Twitter not all this but we feel like we're all getting on Twitter. And all the same thoughts are trickle in and of you add man trump is a joke and drop resisted trump is that. He he won the Electoral College she won the presidential election because the people that aren't Twitter temporary ones who chose to go right to vote ever once again lake surrounded by like minded people on Twitter that are bashing it not remembering mid day he'd he did when there's a huge section of the country that fellow completely different from the folks on Twitter. Now popular mobile today that's the way presidential politics work yen its electoral college and here we are CI guy get that little bonus I will say I do have a little bit not penalize a little bit of of the last day of school kind of vibe today. Because we're going to Vegas tonight like there are issues going on in the country and I almost want to stay away from everything political. Because and about nine hours and 25 minutes yield myself and Johnny concludes are landing in Las Vegas well.

Not and you gotta check did get a check did man do you guys when you travel through hair. 55305. Do you check in for your flights when you fly. I usually check in when you get there. I mean you show up and there's an area to check in and disguising the Charlotte to go get a little kiosks you just sign your name in print your boarding pass you go to the term knowing you wait for your turn to get on the plane I would hope if I go to the airport they have everything I need as far as you know itinerary to get on the plane maker and a I don't wanna jump on the website and and show why it. Literally takes fifteen seconds to do because in first off you also didn't even have an email yesterday is that enjoy seeing groups Brady got C group began terrible boarding position now because you didn't check into this I don't even know what that means enjoy Seagram what does that mean they have Blake was southwest lately south let Wii and they. We're flying its ninth so we love the folks at southwest they have taken away it's like a free for all Friday aboard the plane so there's a boarding group eight. A boarding group beat a boarding groups seat okay yet pay more for a that's how they get to you don't do way. But if OK but if you check in your flight you give boarding group b.'s that you get to board the plane before boarding groups seek. He had so they're gonna be last on the planet we'll try and see idiocy but also what is he's been somebody texting you're gonna get worse seats what does that mean I've never I've sat on the last row on the back. And I sat as close to business slash first class is possible but the I don't notice any difference in terms of like man this he feels better I think it's a matter of getting Al. First of the clock and I don't I cannot declare like Marty and then learn that he's an idiot that's jig then and power to Cuba and yeah I do you group.

Completely agree with you they checked in 24 hours on line to be honest I did not want I'm shocked if there's anybody that doesn't check in for flights in that there's still people texting and they don't check in for flights but it takes thirty seconds to do. Yeah but I just don't think about it I just go to the airport I just when you spend that much money I know Vegas is a pretty cheap flight. But when you spend money on a plane ticket I just want to do everything I can't confirm that I still have a seat like this is happening. He bought the ticket that's can confirmation hang in ornaments airlines to scurry over unless they give your money back we've got a lot to get to AFC NFC championship games this week in Willie Taggart has responded to the Andrew gripe article talking to air and centrist.

In a have a great time we to -- tap room great place we went to some club called dirty for oh I don't get me started present angular issued a sponsor when he did that her son I had I had this is an and I layers on I -- save barrel from laying low harming herself last night late I -- it was late do tell and I just teasing me with that story she was crying on the side of the street outside the club wearing basically not being with people go out like this -- thought it was jam packed Miami and I couldn't believe it either it was -- it as the kids say it was very lately and -- say okay. But here's how started real -- for we DA FC NFC title game. So we went out and we stopped in to ground control via the arcade bar yes and I'm not really fond of and I've been their couple times it's not bad but it's Mosul funky little also it was their last night actually. Shut did you just ruined the whole story jolt you thought I had an injury to show she'd RA is my circuit Fuzzy age and he's Louisa.

And I really got wanna go as they are is an hour right there right it comes smells like Vienna sausages in here.

So we have all those other spots right. Low mold like get into work this morning and I check organ live. And my buddy Tim Brown who does some digital stuff formed as a great job humble bragged he posts a story. That last night at 11 o'clock. Thirty minutes twenty minutes after Wright left. Lou ECJ walked in and performed his standup act that he did at the modus center about an hour before a show that you were dying to get tickets are Sean and I had a free tickets offered to me yeah I was dying to go to when it was announced that he was coming to town months back and it's sold out in ten seconds. We were where he showed up but we left because they said it smelled like Vienna free consultant to accept a mystical Louie CK performance because of Vienna sausages. Thanks a lot. Odds too bad I was just so I can't imagine how awesome that would have been to see that the stories we would have on the show today I would have been ten feet from release right Kate. Performing a random stand public people or how many people are in the bar at that time when he would've gotten it right when you relieved I can't really guessed they make is it's a two stories venue yet but it does not and it's a Thursday night there wasn't any it was a packed wall to wall always on a Friday Saturday crowd there was no line outside we walked right in the don't. Honestly they with the stars are aligning content in his guest on the show you dropped the ball. You should it's soldier family I never won their suck it out really screwed the blue John really just again and get there at the smell Vienna sausage and just deal doesn't like the smell of Vienna sausage. I need to know where that came from a civilians sausage when you talk about the canned stuff that you Danny Els knows the ski cancel each enough of that said and like no the characteristics give. A good show so you might I had arrest Thursday night but I think I challenged that and I was out of 3M because of shenanigans and I missed Louie CK performing an old a random standup act it has frayed you take McCain for crappy is Thursday at least you at least you're up to 3 AM and you don't look too disheveled today. Yadda get up for like six a two dollar school and a hammer heads straight to a bar after the show to sell its Canadian sting art in America and 72 hours for me hey let's get in the AFC NFC title games which gamer you most pump for. Can you pick just one. US missile for the show and I could not I hate defense and on stuff I don't know if I have an answer for him because for me for my money I think the more in true. Reading game is gonna be Pittsburgh New England just because of the two organizations involved Tom Brady the rings. A big Ben's got to meet at six combined. Super Bowl trophies between those two quarterbacks in whenever you have an NFC Europe or AFC title game like that. It's awesome. But at the same time Aaron Rodgers is chemist television right now. Yeah I don't care who he's playing it could be just about a beach football game where he's playing with a bunch of Joseph should always and I would wanna pay to watch that because of the style. And how successful he's been the last eight weeks I don't know if I can give you an answer I think it tells you. How exciting this weekend's going to be that there's not one game that man's kindness Newser. Last year there was a lot of excitement about Denver and new England and for me to kind of snooze it was Carolina Arizona. Carolina and a bull run out it was over by halftime Palmer and what fight take tried it takes a Nacchio I just I don't get the sense that we're gonna have a similar weekend were once good one batting both these games are going to be great ballgame I. Tend to believe the exact same thing and the spreads or it's a one score game so Vegas clearly in this situation you very rarely get double digit favorites Vegas thinks a one score game as well. I think it's really easy to say Brady Roethlisberger. Really easy and I get a they've only played one time in the post season in their careers which is almost a remarkable thing to think about. Given for how often they've both been in the play a gold look at the list this is a very famous thing that's been popping up from last two years now and it continues this year. Go look at the list of who won the AFC since Brady. It's Brady Manning Roethlisberger and then there's like Flacco era flak if pro Flacco and outside of that it's a damn every single season that's a great point he had Manning did it with the Indianapolis twice with Denver twice. Brady Brady like Roth has its time slot as for Richmond three of all green. It's a great point yet so every year it's been those three guys and they've only met one other time and I think that was in 2004. So I'm really stoked for that game. I'm actually gonna go to the other one though in terms of what I'm more excited for and one hates to see Aaron Rodgers try to do something that I honestly. Believe. We have never seen in NFL history to take that team to the super bull would be one of the more remarkable achievements ever. And then the other one is I wanna see Matt Ryan. And what he does on this dazed as he was on the sage once a huge lead the niners came back. They couldn't win the niners went on to the Super Bowl like had a re Kansas the end to remember they had a fourth down like a fifteen yard something they couldn't pick up Bowman knocked down that has their memory I remember it vividly. But this is a huge opportunity because I feel like if Matt rind can win this even though green Bay's depleted. He goes to the Super Bowl for the first time in his career and I think it it it. It pumps him up a notch. From an already great season to people not who brewing met Bryan anymore it's a great point IE all if he wins this game he goes to Super Bowl maybe for some he still needs to win it but he's likely going to be the MVP this habeas first NFC championship game. His first appearance in the Super Bowl and if if he. Is able to compile a season like that all of a sudden you have to throw Matt Ryan and that conversation because right now let that go back to pre season. If you were just to throw out to listeners to sports fans everywhere naming your top five quarterbacks in the NFL. How many how many people have Matt Ryan in the top five some might not even have a mean now even though he's probably going to be might be people with the Erie had him in the success of the falcons have had some still lineup put amend their but if he gets about point he has to be in that conversation I know it's really remarkable thing to think about the AFC NFC championship games into this weekend we're going to Vegas to watch him. And I'm just I'm absolutely pumped on eight I want to talk about the Antonio Brown stuff when we come back. Because a lot of people are buying in this is going to be a distraction iron culminate a whole thing on distractions and sports. Is this just like every other distraction are we over blowing this one. And we're gonna have ourselves a hell of a ball game we'll talk about that next the first Joseph with a sports update. This is a football Friday addition of dirt and spray it brought sealed by series Pacman highs on 1080 I say. I welcome back in 1235 on 1080 the fan happy football Friday and everybody out there always we approach the AFC NFC championship games and that's what you're talking about. I just what games your most Jack to watch it's hard with a weakened like this. To really identify just one like I I take Atlantic Green Bay but I mean in all honesty it's. It's like 11 day I don't I don't think there's a clear cut winner here. I think we're all winners is for being able to watch this guy watch these two matchups. I'm just hoping they live up to the high that we finally got that on Sunday of the divisional round or Saturday was and someone on this news or renewing menus and never read any intrigue forming Seattle Atlanta was a good first half but Atlanta ultimately pulled away in the third quarter. And separated themselves but then you had Sunday where you Heidi just an all time classic between Green Bay and Dallas from start to finish. And then the Kansas City pits for game came down alarm with the chiefs trying to get a two point conversion so. I August humbled these games live up to the high because we at times in sports can go into these kind of moments in the forwards in the game and think they're gonna be classics and then you know once he men's a blown the other one hour one team doesn't show love somebody throws for five X. Any gets out of hand I don't necessarily see that happening I just I hope both these games are are as good as. We think they will be yet and speaking of that matchup you know the big one in Pittsburgh and New England they're both big but like the big match or reading from for a lot of people because of the quarterback duel because of two franchises the fan base accent around. Com in Pittsburgh in doing when you've had to deal with this Antonio Brown story for the entire week I did is just so overblown I can we do you really think it's I don't are eating this summing that's going to cost Pittsburgh. What's gonna cut this is no different to me there when the New York Giants wide receivers one on a bone on their day off but you had the draft by Beckham. You did yeah eyes are sure maybe if Antonio Brown comes out drops four balls like it's on him did not come on have a bad game but him filming something in the locker room how is I just. I think we did so bland on this stuff is media and his fans because we don't get inside access and some of us don't ever know what it's like to be inside an NFL locker room at this point in the season yet so you think that this is gonna be like the bulletin board material New England need take. If you need bulletin board material for an AFC title game. You're doing something wrong Boe both these coaches are two of the best in the league able to bend your before they both won Super Bowls. There's a ton of talent on both rosters elected to say a FaceBook live video. Where Mike Tomlin drops a couple cuss words about the patriots is going to be the difference I think is is completely misguided but I just don't think. Idling its just the video and by the way the whole thing like. If you don't think there's respect given on both sides by these two coaching steadily you're completely delusional aspect to coach to say about your opponent this point in the season godly love New England I think it's more dirt not about the video it's more about having to talk about said video. Antonio browns are pressed charmer it's Tomlin had a talk about Roethlisberger was on a radio show when he talked about in Pittsburgh that's the only semblance of a distraction I'll grant you but at the end the day how much time is out. Outs outside of when you're talking to the media how much time a practice they spending on this none not grow so sure maybe after practicing got to spend ten minutes saying hey what's the deal like you film a deal apologize would you think about the video. It's ten minutes your time and you move on well and right now I Catania fans dot com for the pick comes we say yesterday it's around seventy plus percent are picking New England. And I don't think most I don't think he has to deal with. He has to do with that I think it's mainly mainly just Bill Belichick act the Belichick factor. Because when I broke I've I've break in this down like five different times in my head of how I think the game to go and I've read articles and Pittsburgh have Rehman on WEI dot com. You listen to the TV shows on and on network ESPN. That the basis that I have this game and I said this yesterday basically how I feel is. If these two teams are playing their best. Pittsburgh the better team and to be honest with you I don't even think that's a debate. But because of bill ballots yet. That doesn't seem to matter little Diane Brady to that William no doubt but I don't know John Brady and Belichick is so good at canceling out your best assets sure. Italy beyond bell and may be an Antonio Brown. That I think everybody buys into that you should because of his resume but he it's kind of amazing to see. How many people truly believe this is like not even a no brainer for them but if Pittsburgh plays a great game I think do a better team. Why I think it in terms of taking out weapons I also think it's important to credit Pittsburg for what they did last week because they want against Kansas City. And achieves two biggest threats retiree Killen Travis Kelsey Kelsey didn't have a great game get a drop but. For the most far they didn't allow those guys to be game changer and and that's ultimately I think what they want they didn't put the ball. Order and allow the ball again and it Tyreke hill's hands and open space that's how Kansas City was so dynamic towards the end of the year so Pittsburgh can do the same thing. And we just saw that last week and in one of the things I mean when when you look at this game that you've been hammering home that I really agree with. This is the point about Ben Roethlisberger and how at times he can be a liability now he he's got great moments in his career I think he's a top three or four quarterback in this league there's not a doubt in my mind. But the one thing he has been this here's a little turnover happy even in the playoffs he's been a little turnover happy. Other tech last week wasn't his fault against Kansas City got batted at the near the goal line but he threw two picks the week before against Miami he had a game towards the end of the season. On the day one pretty easily that he drank four picks in buffalo on the snow also. When he gets turnover happy pits perking get in trouble and and that's an even bringing up that if Pittsburgh is to go down this weekend. That to me is gonna be their demise that for whatever reason maybe lady on bell does he get off to a great start doing the does a good job as your mentioning. Shutting down the running game they feel like they have to put the ball on a big Ben's hands or he feels like. He needs to make plays early in the game forces some stuff and a double coverage in and Ali all of a sudden you're down by two touchdowns Tom. Yeah Roethlisberger would make me all kinds of nervous for this ball game if I was a diehard steeler fan I would go into this in his greatest Roethlisberger careers been in as great as he's been as a leader for this team. He still would make Reese oh incredibly nervous heading into this match up. Because of that reason because he's got Favre and he does yeah and he hasn't for a lot of his career. But it feels like the last couple he has because he's got great talent. And any sometimes she thinks he has such great talent. Then he can throw it up and a double teams or he can throw a ball on a spot. They think only his receivers can make a play on and sometimes he overlooks the defense in those circumstances. The other part Hugh is when you look at New England. For as much as we talk about New England quarterbacks they have faced in this way. 781 they're strike anyone analyze a raiders using games there's not like Pittsburgh been facing top notch quarterbacks either no no it's not so I'm willing to play out yet he's got mad worn out smell I'm really interested to see how that's gonna break out as well wake which defense is truly get a play up because right now statistically. These are two of the best defense is in the entire NFL. But I don't know if that's necessarily accurate the when I look on the side of the ball for Pittsburgh. And I see pass rushers I see aggressive physical players that gives the quarterback and cause disruption. Brady's amazing and how quick he gets the ball up what we saw would Denver last year. When you get to lump he feels uneasy. He kind of gets a little skittish in the pockets are that's UB Brady yeah you pressure in the pocket and we all know that at this point when elected New England. Who my looking at is a pass rush threat. 'cause I can name a cup I James Harrison but Dupree. There's there's two pretty damn good ones and we saw Dupree all over Miami yeah had a great game against Kansas City Harrison was an animal what 38 years old against Kansas City. I just I don't know why and maybe I'm spoiling my spring line that I guess I'm just starting the more I think about this game. The more I kind of feel like this is Pittsburgh team to lose and and I can explain it other than just some of those points that I just made motor. In the football this time a year is so important that some Brady hasn't necessarily had drug chunks of his career so when Garret blunt can get it go on and take some pressure off of him that's huge help for New England but but I feel more confident. And maybe on bell being able to run the ball which is why do you like Pittsburgh in this game and I think the Favre comparison Roethlisberger is interesting because firfer is scary as he can be and is turnover prone at times he can be. How many clutch moments is like I am in his career ending game what I mean like how many quarterbacks have game winning drive and a Super Bowl he's got one of the go ahead touchdown go as I sound says it's it was a Santonio Holmes at the back and zoning and Sarah's gonna sell. I think firfer is scary as you can be with him trying to forced upon certain situations which to me is the biggest fear about Pittsburgh. You also at the same time have to give him credit because he's come up extremely clutch in his career. Genesis of her points out of two point New England is giving up only one touchdown on the ground. In like the last seven games and they may face some good running backs too and they assays laid down Melo know that's a different handles a whole another level that. The belly check factors real every single time I can name eight different reasons why I can tell you Pittsburgh is probably the better team. Bella checked Brady. Always make up the deficits and citing that's ultimately why people feel so comfortable betting New England. So AFC NFC championship games Antonio Brown we'll see if that's a distraction. I tend to believe it's a little overblown and I think. If they lose it's not going to be because Antonio Brown had a video and there's a bigger distraction out there it's giants wide receivers flying to Miami that to me is a bigger distraction and a FaceBook live video and and I still don't think that was a huge distraction it is didn't play well coming up next. Could a guy we all despise. Guinness to start liking him. He might be off to a great start and I'll say who that is next on 1080 the fan. Written. And this is a football Friday edition I'll durden spray into rocks by staying fat and high on ten AB Salem and look no lie. I was seduced into when he sixteen. And I'm just trying to be a good person again pass tag lost in the sauce you weren't that due Sheehan 2016. No I was not. To some I've probably was but I didn't think I was those were the words of a man who might. BA is universally hated is an athlete as we've ever seen a Johnny Mann Zell. Old Johnny football tweeted that out yesterday I believe it was. And it kind of just eight went viral he each sign on Twitter any tweeted that out in he started going on kind of like an open in. I don't know admitting like I had a rough year and I wasn't a good person and I lost to I was. His avatar a change that to a picture what is I think his mom and dad and sister in. If you read any stories unmanned Zell as parents basically lost touch with him because of his lifestyle. It was a really ugly story aside from flaming out of the NFL. But he tweeted that out and many started tweeting some things out as the day went on a and he said haven't been this happy long time man I appreciate all the people in my life who reached out during the truly rough patches and sixteen. He also talked about this story that he's going to be charging people for self he's not a grass of the Super Bowl. Said just brought to my attention that story. I'm not charging a penny for a dam sell Fiat the Super Bowl dumbest thing I've ever heard I would never do that to people who have been supporting me that's ridiculous. He also tweet did you olympians and I'm trusting this process like I'm my boy actor well impede. Somebody says stay the hell away from Johnny FF he quote we didn't have little. Sorry to burst your bubble and examining Goodyear about that yet so I'm I'm just curious stir before you go off. I don't go off on this on nobody likes him yes I wonder if he can get people to start rooting for him. Well and whenever regard that means two things first off it's nice to hear him dispelled. The story that he's gonna be charging for autographs and some is that the Super Bowl because when I when I saw that story that was all right that's Pete huge like Johnny Mann Delhi's that are relevant. He's looking to make a quick buck and he's going to the Super Bowl and charging fifty bucks for a cell feet. Gimme a break that sounded like something Johnny Mandela dues so the fact that he's not. I like to hear that it looked as a country we love redemption stories we do and if Johnny Mann tells able to to figure his life out stay sober. And not continue to be a laughing stock I have no reason to dislike him now. That's a completely separate conversation away from his football career he's not going to be an NFL quarterback I don't I don't think the alcoholism a product down. Well brought him down Aziz is not a good pocket passer he's not very accurate he's undersized. Under there's a lot of things that go against him in that regard so I don't think it is the being sober parts and all of a sudden changes chances in the NFL. But as a country we love redemption stories and if he's able to if this is true like we've seen. Flashes of this before Marie went to rehab there was a week or two where he was doing the right thing and then all the said he was at a nightclub and pocketed DNC on his way in and out if this is something that sticks I have no reason to dislike John and Ansel. Could be a back up. No I guess is nice together I just don't see him being an NFL quarterback I just don't you think they're dumb of them just because there's so do you get the chance like Tebow got a couple extra crack somebody you'll invited to training Leno Jerry he loves to stir the pot Abbott three quarterback controversy and Dallas all but there's no reason not invited McCleon dissect with Tebow but I just don't think he's got a chance I was never impressed with him when I watched him and when he got the NFL I mean it was so obvious how small he was. The style of play that he has in the NFL overs college was not gonna translate. And I'm not saying he could ever be a competent starting quarterback is I don't think he will be. But when I think about pack ups in the league you tell me can be a third stringer verses what what the hell that Mark Sanchez do this year I don't look there's bad backup quarterbacks I get that. Mark Sanchez has some bright moments as an NFL starter a long time ago jetting Intel has no moments as an NFL star threw a thirty yard pass once against the Steelers. I saw they actually he get along like this is an awesome get a sense you yarder against one team until artist Benjamin Jesse with all of pigeons are Arabs that he threw a bomb to Benjamin I guess they did what is was like a spring training game there are literally pigeons in the hell are we talking about there on the Cleveland Browns feel and Travis Benjamin ran Durham they would have pigeons on their helmet may look out let me look up his numbers from when he actually play. I just you know I I found it is just annoy you mean you did this same thing with that would Tebow and I always set like we always argued Tebow won't annoy Jill Barlow -- a lot of that was jokingly but we argued -- also don't don't make me out to be the guy that was arguing for Tim -- to truly be -- just starting quarterback either you were -- -- I said. Ryan Lindley Tim Tebow is there a difference. Let's see in this is right this is what I retort with obviously they're weeding Johnny Denzel is there a difference this one still has a job this that's what I would say like NFL coaches are not dumb. There that actually they are marketing and there's us. Final home fired every year they're not gonna not give Johnny men's elegy is just 'cause he's joining hands LT sober if he is as good as Brennan we did you get that third street job that's why I always said about idol I completely disagree impaired and a backup to think it is good enough an NFL teams not gonna be dumb enough to say no we don't want him as a back up really because there was a great baseball player that got locked every three at bats was still hitting thirty plus home runs and got black ball not a baseball. Nobody wanted on the roster drugs and can't get over it it's the same day it was like 45 years old Tucson it's still -- the -- was Leahy your sixty yen or dollar do not compared Tim Tebow out of the greatest hitter of all time that's is slowing it may better than area half the league sturdy figure black ball but he OK thank you he would steroid user you isn't a lot better about baseball managers aren't stupid if they did he tell they're gonna pick it does that combine that he can't make that compares a guy I would defend a lot of coaches in circumstances. Don't tell me there's that stupid football coaches artist there are always do. Tim Tebow always finds a way in his radio shows somehow always Mae and those numbers NGOs brought him up now it's my fault men does numbers in 2015 and nine games. It through seven touchdowns and five picks. Completed 55% of his passes. After 79%. QB RI QB rating yet this guy as an appointment of a coaches are dumb C Jeff Fisher. Jefferson and Ike. What that is so 2009. Or real mex is 2099. Super Bowl out might my contention is always if Johnny man's own shows up to training camp and plays good enough he will get a spot on our roster he's not gonna be black ball out of the NFL 'cause he's a -- back I'm not saying he's gonna be well that's why that was the only term networks and that's the only slight rally tonight in getting an invited him I'm saying. Well let's. Let him be sober for a longer than two weeks first he's oldies do between commodities are a couple tweets all of a sudden he's a changed man can we get it recently that. We've all been through addiction stuff and our allies would our ourselves or family members like on a two weeks and a couple of tweets I need to see a little bit lower track how many Vince. Racial quotes DC posted on FaceBook and answer him all the time from just the regular person and then they don't change anything that they do and I knew a guy that was cheating on his wife and regularly was posting Bible scriptures on FaceBook. So if it was they Isaiah 2010 as so true and I'm like dude I just saw you at a club a week ago standing on your wife Shannon on near white I bet you the scripture or her god was totally there and a half hour. Man can't believe you dismiss him a boy I why do. I dominated Alabama don't you tell me he's not a good I just had a positive segment on John and and does so yes somebody texted end. Man things really are changing under trump. Yeah if you judge a couple things really are JG yes dirt even wearing a nice and respectable but not envelope thanks trump does that start again can we stories and and I stacked I think from now on it's no more thinks Obama is hitting trump hash tag thanks trump NASA Johnny men's cell I don't know maybe getting his life together we'll see will see about that but I'd either that was kind of cool. I don't ever really rooting for the guy but he he is I don't like to see people go like the whole his whole life was going down in flames. No nobody wants to watch us touching his family this difference is a listener does accurately point out though between him and some other guys is that he was he grew up wealthy. Yet no doubt like Britain like I think it it's and it's more of a sad story when you have somebody they came from nothing that turn themselves into athlete from nothing may all this money didn't they flame out would drugs in bankruptcy in south. It's another one when you drew groping it's a multimillion but I also know we Isp. Boards fans we don't care if you grew up horror wealthy because if you're successful when you grow or were gonna hate you look I'm all for LeBron is point in case there we hate LeBron. Literally the definition of what you would wanna kid to do in those circumstances and we freaking KM. Because the other help rally to announce who's going to Miami Heat Johnny mintel grew up rich. Played really well got the NFL flamed out we gave him like we don't we we don't pick and choose we hate these guys no matter what happens. For the most part the big time to visit make Johnny great against. In the UK that. There is a story were alarmingly growing numb to. And we shouldn't be as sports fans would get to that Mike Leach Rick dean the SEC. Yes the cougars coach is going all in on the SEC. Pay in averaging a triple double king Dick he was starting spot on the all star team apparently in the MBA but we'll start our two. With the Portland trailblazers. And their lack of leadership. Announced TrailBlazer Tyrod that next dirt spray on them.
