Happy Thursday everybody out there it is time for third straight here on 1080 the fan brain it's great alongside a pumped up fired up. Tight sports pans and Peter Johnson I'm surprised we haven't changed the name of the show yet either to the flannel grows. For the change makers I don't I don't know I just I don't know I can go either way flannel burrows is fine with me but change makers might be might be the better name you an iron about we're pretty different people when we are so what we like an Angel Reilly loves sports that's a common interest that's that's our one unifier we loved women who would you do we love good food we do both love good food but we also a different takes on some foods yes absolutely we do. Outside of that. I mean you like crappy rap music I like good music yes you like crappy movies that have fast cars are like something with you know I'll room. Maybe he hit it through all of a little motivation behind it right it amazes me how different we are in yet we still have a day like today where I walked in wearing a blue flannel. And you locked in after me wearing. A blue flannel over the final rose today I'm not proud of this and were brought out finals I'm not proud and all but I will say I've embraced and from from the second I locked in the building as frustrated as I was at first about it.

Come to life then you are right now about what she did pre show and for listeners out there are happy Thursday let me fill you in on something real quick. This is probably twenty minutes ago at 1205 right now twenty minutes ago. My man across from me. Put up a change dot org petition you got that right. Because he is so excited about the report of the coyotes looking at Portland or Seattle of relocation now now. He is had enough. He's getting off this Easter and he says this is his way to help and for some reason meanings change dot org is the right place to start a petition to get Holland to relocate by the tech. Thank thank. Thank. You know if it's a lot of effort. It took a lot of manpower and it took a lot of hours but after about two minutes fifteen seconds I'd put it changed dot org petition not.

I'm jacked up bubble sorts of fired up for that hey if Russell Wilson is Elton for the arena and Seattle you know going after every press conference that he sold or whenever he's so ago we -- a solo I don't know there's so little daughter whenever he's called net I think that dirt can create ill petition here and its signature sometimes you just got to roll your sleeves up and go to work sometimes you gotta be to change the U wanna see I am that's that's the tech took today's Gregor I'd just say you know what I just don't see enough action on this there's folks in Portland looking at the motives that are. The perfect hockey arena let's begin changed. That we won his seat dammit so do you think by he's having this petition beside my people while cutting a hole I didn't go. You know what I like this this is motivating how many goes in and all of my money now to make you happy that it. That's exactly it's but I do need to urge the listening audience of this fine radio program that might cause is gonna make me take this down at the end of the show we don't reach a hundred signatures to go sign which by the way dirt set the signature limit and a hundred I don't know how to do I never started a petition before I don't know I like it just I went through I put a picture op idea I put the description on their managers set a hundred was our goal we did you use the like a legal photo. He and I'm not kidding when I see this he started egos. Website would you go to you started his should. Does and I think I don't know depends on what you wanna do or maybe maybe change dot org he just quietly committed. Any turns back radios is that web site by Obama still going or is that been revealed. And Leo what did you tell arguments like I don't know. I've got a petition. So it's up it's on Twitter if you wanna go vote it's on our Twitter account after and Sprague the go find a link there. If you're not on Twitter and you want it I will send it to you and I text Berry got a couple of folks asking at 55305. Word lie side there we'll send you the link on your tax muscle to be grind and on this all day I'm hit refresh on this thing like every 35 seconds or so. Little's a little disappointed eight minutes and talking about it we haven't received any signatures since the start of the show. We're still stuck at thirteen but I'm guiding it just it takes a while you gotta fill name and email address. There's all process involved. And I promise you will not get any Israeli mostly Cheney not viral shrugged they don't start you know overnight you know and I all know that builds they take well here it's a week sometimes console near thirteenth isn't nobody likes decide it is it goes citing the damn petitioned how many competitions have you stopped outside in downtown decide how many college did you stopped going into the library decide. How many. And those are just names and phone numbers. This is email city zip code address. Name. Somebody said my name and email yeah I'm out. Yeah how come I didn't spam might change dot orange dot org both Sunday and occasionally million deleted with the rest of moms why he's my work email. I'm nineteen spam to my personal email on that one. I love it it's karma it's it's you know what it is petition karma for you it is I've never sign a petition in my language cared about any other cause you never held that's true I don't I why are you looking for people help you I've never lifted a finger for anyone else in life I just pretty self involved I won't lie about that whatsoever and yeah usually when I'm when I walked by somebody with a clipboard asking me for his signature I pretend to be on my cellphone. But this is this is when things turn this is this is the change so I hope people listening right now albeit maybe on a cell phone out work wherever I hope that they're bringing out said cellphone and acting like they're not hearing what you are saying I say we get there with a clip board send them out downtown port every great man the last stop people on them I wanna see their reaction like no this is for airport and hockey team it's just all right I'll sign that bring me anecdotal parlor and make me deal if you don't get more than one signature at the end of this segment you delete that petition are how many refresh the segments not over yet as I again. More up to ninety jokes on you we just got six of the last 32 doubts about the number you think about that's Fred not catch me outside about that can texting me out flat out about that if a a good we got a lot of people in 55 through five that are asking for the link now the test is going to be if we hit a hundred. Does it let us keep going that's my big fear is that like we get to a hundred and then they just shut the whole thing down home because that is some reason our goal. So hopefully we get by the hundred number by the end of the shuttle just let us keep build and you know what I. Most surprised about aside from you actually getting off your lazy asses start a petition I didn't get off my assets sitting in my computer okay that's a good point. I'm I'm just surprised are getting so emotionally and this especially considering the comments have come out today but the state of there's hi Allen said I've had no conversations with people and then the coyotes well B could say they need to you but they've basically refuting called the author of the report. A complete BS are we trying to have the author of the article Hahn from the Glendale news to get this story had like 52 followers and re tweeting themselves and didn't seem like a very his name is Daryl and his Twitter handle was like MRI. Like I don't I don't know I don't know there was your name your name doesn't come up and apparently the Glen mills star news whatever it's not even like an actual newspaper it's like it's the secondary papers people get this all the time probably I bet you get these in your mail I get them a little more lucky press yes I get the Beaverton one whatever it is it's basically the run off stories that the your guardian has no room for they just given to you for free.

Do this some reason let's petition to just get a winning basketball team for starters OK I mumble that petition Jim let me just sign it let's start all sorts of us boards petitions Venice to be our new calling as a show mental note I've already gotten two emails from change dot org. You meet him. Hey tell your day going changed about a hour wants to know that I literally just got an email as you were saying that you guardian got into the email was probably change dot org check NN and yes what is the idea Thursdays ago when that changed it was an email same my body just signed it because of my face though I was on a tire and elegant show us. The Jovian co author for change in Portland so yesterday at around 530 I was driving around the mrs. renewal date night and we got stuck in traffic and M drive in. And do you listen to music in its I I turn on the fans coming out on a big innings going on I turn on prime time. And I'm hearing sue Canon glass and ago I was so funny. Charles Oakley was what was funny and Charl exactly how about that in so if you didn't see this and I don't know who hasn't but if you haven't. Charles Oakley got arrested last night at the knicks game and the guy who played for the knicks for ten years yet. The enforcer of the New York Knicks firm yet ten years he got arrested so get this story so he shows up and he goes to his seat. Security comes up to him this is all we had from video security comes up to on they have this exchange he starts to get past. He's pointing his finger in the guy's face securities try to you know gig is let's go blood yeah he did kind of slaps the guy with his hand. It didn't get a little physical they pulled aside there's like five or six security guards they pawned that aside it put him into the ground. They escort him out and then police show up and actually put him in handcuffs and arrested him. Because technically egg I guess that's assault right well heating charges assault but technically there's like edited that way. And so there's this video that's going on all over the Internet it's crazy. Will the stories come out more more more like what really went down. So Oakley says that he bought his tickets yes and that this all kind of stemmed from shouting at James Dolan to reports say they James Dolan. Did not like being shouted eating not like being yelled and I should say. By Charles Oakley yes security remove them. And then everything went down here's Charles Oakley is explanation and how he sees it and how he viewed his ejection from Madison Square Garden. I happen needed for free is with the game that I was six in the club booths. It is sit down and have good. Active in the way as I was asked to leave the bill and that's why. And two. Guys who you believe you both. So what order you to leave them like. I've been euphoria minutes of a mixed day is. Played it continues. A little mix a little your slow hard always have all the look. This is says. On the best local. We'll go. We now welcome to the guard. And what happened next they say a move somebody got us. More of more could come within me and I'm like why do not believe. And what reason they. These happily. Mega order. Bill with a look back and do. So this respect him but. You go say that new life and move. Look I was no windows. That looked. Get out. And having it escalate from when they ask you this. I mean he feels about all the W we got the detectives that no matter. I believe it was like before. I've been joke before Obama has no matter if they go by reducing simply that together walk the ball you have the braces. It be good for details. The thought they. I will defend the Nixon is like I've seen probably a hundred different angles of these videos and watched him multiple times. They didn't really run out part of things are now locked up and say hey man. Can you get out of here are slowly formed around him you added nearly run out bought into the point where he needed to put his reign in the guys face. So any he's exaggerating a little bit about that played. Just stay weird bizarre story James McEnroe by the way or John McEnroe I should say was like right in the thick of it. He like watch the whole thing code Dow's got McEnroe involved security James Dolan is right there and get this this is the play by play this long this is the play about his game was on ESPN this is the first quarter Chris stepped forcing is is at the line to shoot free throws in this whole thing goes down. This was what was heard on ESPN. Joins me. I. Over ten years. Political organization. T nine times. This is the same Charles Oakley obviously and involved with the security now our own Ian Baker lake that covers the next four ES PM here in New York. Basically said Charles Oakley attempted to get here James Dolan. Phil Jackson did a company. Back into the tunnel is trying to. And down hopefully. Was quoted as saying mrs. Bologna basically and that's all we know I'm trying to get a little bit. Yeah not my day. Yeah Charles Oakley was not happy wanted to fight everybody just too weird scene to see Yemen where did doubting you know that sums it up I mean that it to have somebody a mile James Dolan and Charles Oakley obviously if not gotten along firm for a long time now and this goes back to even my Maryland LeBron James was a free agent. And he talked to Charles Oakley and said it don't in Oakland don't don't silent the next or dumpster Fareed wanna play for Dolan I know it's Madison Square Garden I know live. History behind the uniform you don't wanna go play for back guys so it kind of all stem from that. But to toss a guy out because he said four rows behind and heckling a little bit. That this is it's is not a good look for Dolan and then the next come out after the game and they released a statement. Basically at the end that they say we hope he gets all the help. RDZ he's a Great Neck and we hope he gets help soon. That's that is bush league that's what they said about him basically. Making it seem like he's either alcohol or Corey screwed up mentally didn't sound bites in shambles I think there's a little to be said about up top because he's a little crazy yep for sure does sound very drunk on that explanation no luxury and a few pops here in the during the course of the night when reporters got subliminal restaurant after he was released from jail after he was booked on three counts of assault. Slated to end with a statement like that we hope he did so soon that's bush league. And this is sums up the next season I that this thing is an absolute dumpster fire has been since the beginning of the year. When Derrick Rose went through the whole rape trial in came on said there duress super team. They're ten games below 500 Phil Jackson was supposed to be a messiah. Everybody welcomed him with open arms now they're trying to run him out of town Carmelo Anthony's black and his finger at the fans like. This just literally sums up what the knicks have gone through this year it's a very new. See story isn't it because now today when you talk about this incident like Charles Oakley is revered. And loved them. And Phil Jackson James Dolan are public enemy number one. Phil Spike Lee came out basically self help Phil Jackson pack. KeySpan which is a joke go back and look what everybody said when Phil Jackson was hired by the next jacked just they exist this guy is going to change everything he's got all the rings he's bringing with them all did a great storied history in the NBA for Phil Jackson. And not anything and now he and matzo that a topic in its own right of him. Sending out a cryptic tweet about Carmelo Anthony Lake you will not find a guy who dislikes Carmelo Anthony more than me. But to have a president and CEO would team come around Indy would Phil Jackson did to him when he's the one that signed into a Max deal when he's the one they gave him the full no trade clause. Phil Jackson was the one that Doug is a grave without Anthony deal I do think Charles Oakley obviously overreacted but again this is kind of Charles Oakley to his DNA into Wii was a player and who he's been even post playing career. There is an element though that I I look at this and I can't help but think just how much of a joke James Dolan has been as the owner. He might be the worst owner in all sports and we were gonna talk about another one but I really think he's got to run for his money of being the worst in all of sports. He's in a conversation. The absolutely is amid a debt that are they're not gonna went into dot anytime soon. They can't find anybody their best players Carmelo Anthony and they can't find a difference maker to win and trade with Carmelo and it's 2017 what have they done since they went to the lockout shortened season NBA finals in Lawson got swept by the spurs. Have even been to a conference finals no not that comes and I know it to a second round series they they're they're a blip on the radar for the three months that they had German plan. That was I mean insanity and that would mean it wasn't even about the next it was about Jeremy Lin coming out of nowhere which was ridiculous and its own right. But other than that they've been irrelevant for fifteen years has this listener asks and an interesting question of Oakley is a normal fan does he still get tossed. I tend to believe possibly because owners if you say things to on the wrong way they can get touchy and they own the team which is ridiculous that you're sitting in the stands. Yeah they're welcome to say what they want at him as a listener well that's there's a line you can't cross he go to night to the blaze game and Allen's there you can he save. Paul angle tell Paul that put them. Mall yeah and it is blank yeah I mean Abby goes sexual or too far like Abbott and he criticized the team's performance. And he yells like hey Paul. You're terrible this team sucks is that crossing the line now absolutely as it. There are no it's been a huge disappointment this year I think the big reason he was tossed was because he's Charles Oakley for sure of a meeting at he's terrifying. ABC them he's huge he's been out of the NBA for over ten years he's still terrifies me. Well I saw some reports that. That all and it actually has is people inform him winner Charles Oakley is app or game yeah said he went to a game last year and he walked in Oakley said he wanted he sat down and his seat. And people officials the next game until until we couldn't move is that we got eyes on yeah you're not allowed to move because we need to know where you are all times. Yup this and this is an on Oakley at all he might as well and don't a lot of this is still on oh yeah like he might across the Lima something you said Dolan four rows behind him but I allow across the lyme old times to allow it to escalate to that point was on don't. There's a think a lot of blame is on Dolan from where they're currently out and how this whole thing is just transpiring Carmelo is basically telling his teammates. You know nominee do on the railroad Phil Jackson I'm not gonna let him push me out Carmelo wants to play New York his wife is there she does entertainment stuff. He doesn't care that fans boo him he wants to be in nick he's committed to that. So he's behind the scenes telling his teammates group Phil Jackson comment I have to give the no trade out. I'm not gonna do that. So you got Carmelo going eons the GM you have the GM publicly calling out. The star player or one of these star players you have the owner who is despised as much is almost anybody else in the city of a New York. And his team hasn't been good since he's owned him. And then you also have this Charles Oakley incidents. Which is just be another situation that the New York Knicks have to deal way so I think there's a lot of responsibility for James Dolan and all that stuff I just named. But the Oakley thing is much as I loved it and I watched a million videos and I re tweet it like a free Oakley thing. This is on Charles Oakley like you go to a game you know the guy hates you you know you hate him. Why would you say anything. Why do you need to started thing because it's Charles up and then also a clarity comes in your basically slapping him around in your like blaming them for getting up and rushing up on you come on that's on Charles Oakley. It was it was just since it was a weird scene man like he was getting tackled in the tunnel and he's seen those videos and video you can see ways after they take him down they put him on the ground and you can't seem from the regular camera angle but fans with a camera the camera phones yes and folks Condit looking straight down and you see him on the ground like wrestling to get his hands kind of tied up sitting get a Mac and get out of as a bunch of security guards on his back and then Phil Jackson with a great year he's had apparently tried to walk down uncommon town in the tunnel now and work out. Very next very next scene last night I will maintain this too. There's nobody in the NBA they can be at Charles Oakley right now. Yeah. We had sort of discreet would have I mean I think I can deal Dre months crazy no way I'd give me Oakley bogeys crazy drain months cheap he sought to takes people to not Matt Barnes is crazy. Now Matt Barnes has a neck tattoo ready to be quick. Now give me Oakley. What do Meyers Leonard. It's that one now I did you poll question last night who'd win in a fight Chuck Norris or Charles Oakley. And it's overwhelming. It's Charles Oakley he's a humongous. Human being and a listener points down blazers should game intending contract right now I'd be OK with that we need to toughness of the pain I agree pay from one bad owner to another. Who is the worst owner between the two would talk about and tell you which owner that is and also we will get to the Oregon Ducks huge basketball game tonight. Against the UCLA Bruins game moraine blazes edge back come at 1 o'clock back with more here's Joseph with a sports update. This is dirt and squirt gun and it this. Take coming up in ten minutes I'm pretty jacked for tonight prominently at the laser games I'm into one and while it's TNT. I love watching Isiah played the Celtics have fun. Phenomena have a nominee DVR and probably watching either tonight or wake up super early tomorrow morning. To watch the ducks UCLA game which is following duke North Carolina it's held a night in college basketball I'm actually pretty excited for an eminent try to avoid final scores if possible. But I can't wait to watch that game a little later the most you but I can't wait to watch sets so we'll talk about that game for the organ docs is ingesting record for them against AP top ten teams on the road. One and it's a bit infidelity is limited turn meant hopes on an uneasy the red seating -- seeding helps or I should say gathered top five team in the country but even if you find a way to beat the Marlins on the road and finished the season sweeping UCLA crowd goes a long way for trying to get that one seed again and we were just talking about Charles Oakley being ejected from the Knick game how wild it was and just how much of a mess the knicks really have been. It would James Dolan is the owner is just it's never been great. He he has it made good moves like the Phil Jackson move. If somebody say well to give Phil credit he went against all the critics and drafted Chris staff spores in his. No doubt about it that was a great draft pick he should be building around Chris staffs forcing his Yemeni also wound signed joking no led to a huge deal on Derrick Rose he got from Chicago like they they are going to be able to revitalize their careers you resigned Carmelo to the huge extension of the no trade clause so you know Madrid and cause unless you know he gives you the out on that one so there's also been bad moves by him. But our report came out today from Mike zone yen a four herbs. He said that Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has a handshake agreement to sell the Marlins. To an unnamed New York real estate of a developer for one point six billion. He bought the team for a 150 million that SOB gap and oh by the way. And he does have a World Series championship and is at ten years the owner as he does but I was wondering and it's our poll question of the day who's the worst owner. James Dolan. Or Jeffrey Loria. Gloria. Did the easy out going to be he won a World Series and just by that metric alone makes him better than James Dolan saying he's better than James dawn that's a pretty low bar did to get over. But Loria took over the team he bought it in 2002 they won the World Series in 2003 and he dismantled the roster has noticed that it blood cell. I don't necessarily give him full complete credit for that that did the previous owner was the same when they won the World Series in 97 listen veteran talent some young players and ice mixed. They got rid of a lot of old guys they rebuke rebuild through the draft and then it was in a position. Until when again in 2003. But just looking about Lori is done with that team and our organization if it really is a joke of a Major League Baseball. And it shouldn't be you know Miami should be a good baseball market it's a strong Hispanic community obviously there. It's a warm weather place he can play baseball year round like almonds are the biggest one. Was based on tax free multi Troy absolutely in terms of signing free agents. They did they they build this new stadium they after the lead. Swindle the residents of Miami into paying for it now nobody goes to their games there attendance is at the bottom of the league year in year out the stadium looks like a nightclub it's a monstrosity. That makes you. Long for the glory days of Major League Baseball. So all the things that Lori is done have really have not worked other than winning the World Series in 2003 and he's gonna make about a billion dollars on this sale and I did see is that though this one was interesting so they haven't been back to the post season. Since they won the World Series in 039000003. Winning seasons since then that's a huge drought I did see this static kind of back some a little bit. They have won 48% of the games since he's been the owner there. That's in ninth in the NL so it's not the worst but it's also not know about half who would you rather play for. The next you'd rather play for James Dolan I actually by Ashley was so bad I know it's awful but your playing in Madison Square Garden in front of a sold out crowd every night or your playing in Miami right in front of ten people but still not have to worry about you get eleven Miami's attack easy to live in Miami and it taxes are pretty that's the benefit but they just is somebody who watches a lot of baseball I get the extra innings package every single year and I'll just flip around throughout nights in the summer when you sit around having a beer. Every time you turn on the marlins' games it's depressing. It really and it's like go look at pictures of some of their crowds last year. And there's times that their teams that are even good team like playoff contending teams will come late in the season. And there's nobody in the ballpark and I just don't understand it as a sports fan I'm always so why wouldn't you buy a 300 level ticket move your way down into the top five rows. A because he could easily do it at that new ballpark but. Yeah I gimme gimme gimme a playing career for the knicks any day over the Marlins. I think I'm gonna go Marlins on this one I think I'm gonna go Loria I think Joseph the diving Dolan is the worst owner and and we've got to tell we will Texan Jed York judge York's awful that Jed York is terrible he deserves to be in that commerce agent I will argue that at least Jed York hired Jim Harbaugh and got his team tooth what is it three straight NFC title games and a super wal appearance. He's been able to build an actual winner and sustained for a little bit he did break it up also and send it into disarray. James Dolan can't say that he's never done that at any given point and even this to argue against Loria. You're right Gloria inherited that talent they won the World Series in 03 nobody saw that coming with Dontrelle Willis. Dismantled the team ya and in Indies. A lot to everybody they and a winning season since 2009. That's a long stretch their clothes last inning to finish left three or four games below 500. All last year they didn't end the season Mon September. But this is like it if you're a fan and a team that has terrible owner I like the Marlins are the 49ers the next or any of these teams who want to talk about. The best news you can get is that guys on the team. I did there's no guarantee this unnamed New York real estate developer. It is gonna come in and do things the right way maybe his views it as a cash grab by the way idling its trump the lot of you asking if it's how ya you know it is as James Dolan. Judge James don't know how ironic would that be messy the godfather from the sports brokers dotcom bust up his pitches I could be aegis hope. That then he takes it seriously because there's a lot of advantages to Miami. Like you decide guys to play in Miami first as a home run because of them did the climate in the city they get to live and and then as you alluded to a couple of times attacks is in Florida. It's a huge benefit to trying to get free agents especially with these large contracts that we seem baseball. A 200 some million dollars or undermine our contract. You get that Florida you say so much more money compared to maybe if you cited some Morales so if you get an owner that takes it seriously the Marlins can be a serious threat by the. Way poll question now update our results who is the crappy your owner Gloria or Dolan. 69%. Of you voters out there. Saint James Dolan is far worse than Jeffrey Loria so track record doesn't help either but don't Loria might be out. Depending on MLB and how they've got the new guy if they're okay with them. Then you'll probably sell that's a hell of a mark up so 158 to one point six billion in fifteen years but yet let's not forget baseball's broken. That's it that's as that's a team that nobody goes to their games and just sold for one point six billion dollars up picture pre show of a first inning game I think honest to god there might have been forty people in the stadium. And yeah and that's might be generous that's not even be out and I the first inning of a baseball game started again. So while Lorie might be out of the MLB for the second time to Z on the Expos and and he came back and got the Marlins paid the ducks are looking to do something that historically are terrible lack tonight. At Pauley Pavilion as they take on the Bruins will they win when the ducks beat the Bruins once again we'll talk about that next on the fan. This is durden spurred you on ten AB.

Tom I know normally for a lot of people out there. College basketball doesn't always do it for yeah. But with the way football wage here locally with the way that the organ ducks at least for duck fans have been playing. Top five or induct team going the UCLA against a top ten opponent a Bruin team they've forty beat with that clip we played in domed Brooks. Will they win tonight. And that's hard to say that I in the way to take out hot Tate thought come on man gonna go on the road does guarantee a win at UCLA called this show called take from now I think it went and I. Yeah. They're batters in the Bruins V ducks homer the O. Playing no defense that's the event is the ducks will have in this when the tough part is going to be what they do defense of Dell Alonzo laws best player on the floor and let's not just volley it's TJ Lee Wright got a Hillary get the daily fruit who has been linked to potentially to the blazers of their blazer fan there's a viewing interest a lot of folks in mock drafts. I had the blaze is taking him but they're taken in the first round. I like this this is the time a year I think when most folks start to get into college troops in this area at least especially considering the year. And the blazes are having like it it would be one thing in the blazers may be reversed their record and that was 2820 team or 29 it's when he team. And it was a squad that was pushing for a top four seed in the west maybe it's a little different. But considering the Dow on your today fact combined with organ being into when he won in three being a top five ranked team in the country. And then beating Arizona the way they get on Saturday I think that was that was a real statement win because they were coming off a couple of underachieving performance is if you will losing act Colorado who's not a good team they almost lost a home to Arizona State last Thursday. And clearly labeled them emerges examples a look at a little ahead on the scheduled Arizona because they open up a camp won't pass on the wildcats on Saturday. In a Ford is able to win tonight man I you know I set last segment you're 22 and three. The rest of the schedules managed bulls only you don't triple trip up against somebody shouldn't lose do. And this is a team that that's pushing and closing in on a one seed if they won tonight well and I. I absolutely agree with that I think if they can win this tonight. Obviously you wanna win your conference tournament but if they can at least just get into that the semi final if not the final. I figured I might have feel the same way an heir to kind of do right now about this duck team vs last year's obviously different in different areas. But for me I think this duck team the way they're playing. They obviously overlooked Arizona State got ready for Arizona. And like you said opened up a camp on the wildcats. If they're gonna continue to play like this this chip on the shoulder this prove you wrong. And go down the Polly pavilion and pull that upset I think they're well on their way to getting another one seed this year which is. I can't begin to tell you guys how old sensational that is for a team in organ now to get back to back years were potentially you laurel one seed. You're on the map officially is a college program like that was the one thing that everybody knows complain about whether earning cameras he didn't sustain righty had a great Ronnie go to the elite eights you lose a couple of pieces from the roster in the next year either miss the tournament or you give bounce in the first round yet. This is end look there's no guarantee Gelman makes it back to the elite eight you get tripped up in the sweet sixteen he's ever known attorney you never know in the tournament but just did the simple fact of a potentially doing a back to back years I think does he Wear this program is that in and you look at just the last two years I saw this that this morning. The third night in one over the last two years against teams the top 259. And one. It was not like you're just beat up on crappy teams are also three in 62 all time against team all AP top ten on the road it's not it's not easy to win on the road against top ten team I'm just saying history in that regard not on their side narrow that's that's not on their side but nine and one the last two years in stopped when he tried teams a hell of a clip. Well and I I just again I I loved watching the game last time they played when Dylan Brooks hit the walk off shot basically at the buzzer. And I really jacked for this one because UCLA. There on the outside looking in it and potentially getting the regular season conference not a orchid can almost potentially look at this is this is a good seal up moment now for their final six games are gonna be on the road so they're still gonna get tested. But if you can beat the Bruins knew built off to Arizona win and you can go down to Polly pavilion and get that win. I think it it just it only adds to the confidence of your team and they're so incredibly deep. I aids and to me that's one of the bigger takeaways for their team this year. I think at times he clearly miss that Elgin cook type player absolutely they have but Jordan bell I think is taken it to another level Dylan Brooks has taken it to another level it's clearly he wants to go the NBA this year. Peyton Pritchard has been a nice surprise Casey Benson's work really well against alongside him yeah I'm still danys has been great to get back on this team. And Boucher in the middle mean there's nothing to be said about that kid other than how incredibly is on defense so. I mostly get this team in. You know maybe you miss a guy or two I think overall this team might be better just because of their depth I agree with you. Year in mean you still have a good physical presence majora Mel in the middle Boucher is such did a unique player who I might mention Tyler Dorsey did image and other Dorsey who he was the one that went off against errors I think what he was seven and nine from three I think against Arizona on Saturday. Yes five guys that are averaging double digit points Brooks Dorsey Boucher Aniston bell all averaging double digit sneak up Pritchard. With aids cell. Yemen Libya in your beard Elgin cook was a tough got to replace and early in the year they struggle without a but they also had injuries early in the season and you lose LG company united Dylan NS and Peyton Pritchard and in the lineup. This is a team that can hurt you from one through five everybody can score Boucher can stretch the floor and make some threes. And they're they're just extremely talented and and tonight's gonna be a big test form do you think everybody's locked in undock hoops right now he should be it does not feel that way TU we just aside from its text tweet 600 does that feel that way like in your personal I would buddies and stuff it does yes it does and I think one discernible ending an NFL season being over is one thing the blazers sucking is another thing and I think that that's all a good sign for this ducks team in terms the attention they're gonna again. I'm gonna go good. Based on their last performance was Bill Walton when they (%expletive) them off by the way. The student section through powder after the ducks scored yeah I gotta set and it got on bill Wallace baby powder don't have what got hissy fit. And in the crowd got a warning and then like for the next ten minutes of that game he kind of went against the ducks fans that normally good friar. Irons. He also went on a ran the first half Laura was up I 35 that Arizona was better. In Dade passers like are you seriously trying to argue that right now watching the same game right now Karl it's not toss the ball close for star thrown about they and Tara Lamar and he kind of let his Bruins colors shine through during the Arizona game because he mentioned nineteen during his hissy fit. And he's basically said cause the frowned stormed the court they couldn't get a final shot the Bruins didn't you know opportunities like dude there's like point three laugh it. What were they gonna do and does some it's an island in their body on the talk organ basketball under good it's annoying I think a lot no I'll say this let my docket. That's a normal thing for most fans of any college basketball team here that organ doctor a top five ranked college whose team in the country how many segments have we done on and the entire basketball season in my and then our second or third. I I was I'd give you three Mac. I think I did a segment on and you're out of the that is sec nominate the. This our third third top five ranked team in the country and we've done three segments of the problem with college basketball like we got to. Mean that's not really a talking point trust every great season but that's what I mean by college hoops it's not really sport a lot of people investing here. Until their team is doing huge things you the viewers were funny story. IBC organ being the one seed we could talk about it more but it's college basketball one hand and another valid point is when his ducks basketball not been good during my time on 1080. They've been pretty good the last four years. Yeah they've been a tournament team almost every year exciting is that right you were here when moments first season was right. Alex Jimenez now Fridays is fifth here in Eugene. Sixth and since then Nell I was 87 as our fourth we've we just had our four year mark has a shelves so yes he and they may have been determined every year you've been here and I got a I gotta say much been on again tonight. Was Steve via a fine old are crunch again Mozilla Bruins indices Addai went to UCLA diehard Bruin so I already owe him to lunches so I'm doing a double or nothing so I could go for lunches after night the blazers take on the Celtics and there's a fact about one of the Boston Celtics that I find just fascinating that I wanna pass along you listeners I DN fouled explains why TO doesn't belong in the hall just yet and somebody's not buying that reason. Baseball's going to killed are from anger I know it it's gonna happen. But we start our Q with the blazers edge dot com writer Dan meringue next on Portland sports leader 1080 the fan.
