A scholarship to USC OK at finishing up his career at Lewis-Clark. Was roommates with Brendan Ryan who's the backup shortstop for the Yankees as -- job dirt. But he was -- now as a pitcher. And he did he can throw gas -- I don't ninety -- need at least ninety you know ninety -- needed do we need to have strengths and insurance papers here is what if he's -- is a big dude what is likely if you get drilled Sprague is the accurate. And with. It sounds like he bounced around you -- this happens this guy is doing it I will give him a hundred dollars to throw out the first pitch five feet behind -- I see your. 'cause I know yeah it Jodi you have academic issues or media like in May -- she's is transferred three different schools here. I I don't know I'm volumes will get back to you on this yeah yeah yeah. Let's go as a sports a show weakness that CN FL couple weeks away last hard knocks last night starting to make some cuts. On that show is starting to see that's -- -- of those fun watching hard knocks us out and enjoy this season so far the NFL season a couple weeks away. And the as Sports Illustrated has been doing their NFL previews. And on the cover we saw last night Matt Ryan was taking pictures for this particular copper and -- its regional allies. To Matt Ryan is on which Drew Brees Jay Cutler and Matthew Stafford -- together. And then Tony Romo and -- falls on the cover out west it's calling -- -- and it's Russell Wilson. And so Russell Wilson is basically got rid protect -- got a shoulder pads on these guys under armour. Get up bond and then Colin -- earning just has his pads and knee shirtless city showing his tattoos and this is. Like there's. What the three Abbas I don't think necessarily having a problem with this particular cover but I will say this I think this is very calculated on Sports Illustrated spark. And I think there is a reputation that has been carried around with Colin can't predict whether it's fair or not that he is kind of seen as the wild guy. And and had -- are not the right word but. I think. That does not program trying to find the right word of people what people think about -- Japanese as compared to Russell was the easiest your prototypical quarterbacks yes he's arrogant people find him as arrogant. And there is the difference they find Russell Wilson Wilson humble they find Colin -- critics -- And is that people point to as another example and and how you have image problems with some and certain quarterbacks in the NFL look I'm. I'm forty niner fan and it took me a long time to get on Bora college happening again I was frustrated I was upset when he took the starting job from Alex Smith because you go back in you look at the start of the season the 49ers had -- in the started as he's out Smith that he was having a great year. And I love what he was doing but it took me awhile but I did eventually get novel with Colin cap -- there are certain things that he drives me nuts when he does. For example just when he shows up at the espy's and he dresses like he's got tight leather pants and a tank top and back for attack and many Eagles up there to present a war with Russell Wilson Russell Wilson's organized clean black suit. You sit there -- and -- a -- needs to come out and make it it's not that big of a deal I don't mind those stereotypes disabled that's not your prototypical quarterback why he's not succeed because he's wearing a backwards had a TSB's. But if you know you're gonna get that criticism -- talk about this that athletes all the time if you know that's gonna come. Why do you do other Sports Illustrated thing I don't have a problem with whatsoever Sports Illustrated asked him to do that they asked him to take his shirt off and I don't blame him whatsoever from wanting to take -- your -- I had a chest and a body to look like that. -- walk around every -- brought a shirtless right now yeah I would be shirtless during a studio every single day and that would help -- -- -- so -- -- would like to birds Youngstown slug I was still sweat but he would -- to the shirt let's let's knock -- off track here. But all let's get a body like that -- let's set out to get we'll get there crunch fitness I got plenty out there so they have for sitting on -- give -- -- and I and when these conversations come up in Utah and Kapanen vs Russell Wilson. It bothers me because you'll see I guarantee we're gonna get a budget tax accountable mobile. Russell Wilson what is suitable because he did this in college happening didn't do this he did this -- you know -- capita -- this -- Saudi -- and he's a great thing -- Graham saying the Miami saying he was he was -- a girl apparently in Miami the story lines exist around -- capita. And I hate that we have the stereotypes around where does all the time the show. There are stereotypes around certain quarterbacks in this league that I just simply don't understand the best example I know it's a little different. But the best example like to use that this is -- -- -- meaning for his entire career was a guy who could lead a football team in the -- a -- should never traded -- wasn't a leader he was an import an NFL quarterback he didn't have that killer instinct of people always go around he was open on the sideline he had all these negative stereotypes about him. But he was a Super Bowl now what he's a great leader he's got two Marines people talk about Jimmy's in the conversation as one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL. That's all it takes for -- capita and that's why it bothers me -- this conversation exits of contract wins a Super Bowl just say say the niners go out they beat the Seahawks -- play last year they won a Super Bowl. I guarantee you all these conversations go away because he's no longer that -- can't leave the guy can't read the defense they got it can't play NFL quarterback -- he's a running. All those stereotypes go away by winning. Right there but I think you know there's a little bit of a difference with those two guys because I there are people that criticize his game. But where people are criticizing -- pretty the most. Is off the field yet and then like I -- people for the most part. Respect his game there's criticism there's criticism vault quarterback aggression reads -- there's criticism and I think there's valid criticism of all quarterbacks in the NFL from a distance a fundamental standpoint of playing the position of quarterback you could have that -- -- -- -- -- with -- Colin cabernet. Is off the field Eli Manning they're really happy off the -- -- and I think that's kind of where if you focus in on this Russell Wilson. People's opinion of him is that he doesn't have the opposite field yet is -- but off the field issues as much as Colin -- -- it's funny because you say there wasn't any off the field as she's with Eli and it wasn't an the magnitude what calling to happening yet -- -- -- -- that word no I mean you mean like this people look at -- in said he so boring off the field nobody knows who we like -- genius that was a criticism of him in his personality and being the leader. Look there are people that are late twenties early thirties that perhaps tech startups in Silicon Valley. And they -- crappy T shirts and wrinkled jeans and their leaders of billion dollar corporations. Mark mark that if Zuckerberg Zuckerberg are you kidding me the way he dresses nobody says -- -- he's leading a huge business. But the leader recorder wreck -- aware as soon -- this stigma is so funny to me that 455060. Year old man out there. It's so butt hurt about the way at quarterback dresses. How Joan Amos how magic John's he -- while leaders of organizations. We've seen it before I don't understand why it's an issue for people now it's the personalities who they are. -- we'll take that up their spring next time there's a couple things -- -- why that exist. And what we do about it moving forward there's a Sports Illustrated cover if you're -- joining us that. I was issued out Colin -- predicted shirtless Russell Wilson has got the full get up on an -- there's naturally going to be comparisons. With these guys as long as their careers. Are -- going to be here to wind as long as these two teams. Are relevant we'll discuss a little bit about Josh -- here at the bottom of the hour and bring back some of our conversation with Brian Abraham of the -- Troy. An update you on the Josh shot story. Down at USC state junior listened to get portrait is break served up I'd be -- 1980 dissent. If they think it's that. So I. Millions and kicked off week on and Ford's third inspiration. Brought to you by Ron Tonkin die on ESPN's Sports Radio -- an eighty vote program -- -- and out or pains or assigning he dumped water on a homeless man well Oklahoma's. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Or making assumptions about Colin -- advantage and that it -- we are getting a lot of text on this the difference between Russell Wilson -- capita in Sports Illustrated their cover. Their preview cover I I do believe that there was motive here to drum up interest in their magazine and to show the difference between two quarterbacks. And there has been an effort to try and show. The difference between. Russell Wilson and Colin -- earning some of the reason is that people view calling cabernet can brash they view him as irrigate but there is an image. I was a problem there is an a statement isn't as -- would say is most associated -- -- -- -- -- is exactly right with calling -- that he he and it worked to clean up. I do believe if he chose to do so. And I don't know that it matters to him as much. And -- the best example I could use is the NB. And what the NBA did with their players it was a -- mandate. But he could take steps to. Become more acceptable to the mass public. If he chose to do so we'll see what's interesting though he showed up to various events this offseason and he's -- spectacular suits but you know people notice. He has four buttons and button and Russell Wilson's wearing a tie. What Teddy bear -- there's no way you can win no he had yeah I know but to be fair he hasn't done himself favors no it is he's had moments in post game press -- -- I have no problem with them wearing a backwards and chain. But if he's gonna do it whenever I doesn't bother me and I don't care he's the leader of the political leader of the team the quarterback that's -- -- the view right and but why why does it matter what guy wears as long as he's successful if -- tapper it comes out. And they're nine and seven years a terrible year. I'm curriculum on that I don't hear what he Weyers. If you have success why we care of people -- that's the one thing that I have heard. Throughout the years listening to radio from state to state from national guys you look at some of the most successful guys they dress like crap. Nobody cares on the dress you just have to have success. Why do we -- just that position. And say you have to Wear -- -- anti you have to try to look is much like Tom Brady is possible when we've had guys in the past while connected Germany -- that dress outrageous leak. And where whenever they want and shoulder personality but -- ridiculed and makes no sense to me let's judge contact break on his merits and his play which thus far even though he has things to work on he's been successful in his Corey. Yes and he hasn't and somebody text that -- -- saying that the comparison earlier in the show and I think it was a great example here's a guy that walked around and for coal continuously been around to different women and he was alcoholic he was a Boozer. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I am a forty niner fan but if you gave me the choice that you guys I would take Russell Wilson Russell Wilson in my opinion. Is a better quarterback that being said. This argument drives me not somebody -- does it cap critic has the tools but he is -- a leader Wilson -- is out his skills and is it true leader. Where does that come from does that come from the he dresses does it come from the -- he shows up at the -- I am on record saying he should class it up a little bit. I don't disagree with that whatsoever. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Happening can clean things up I will never disagree with that people wanna go out and mincing any words to do all this up I'm not a fan -- 100% liberal. I hate when it and I know it's not a big deal -- but I hate the post game where he wears a chain back which I just don't like that. I like the NBA model you class about the dress little -- he would Wear that stuff on your free time lost touch them by the -- and if they have a little -- yet another wearing glasses -- not an -- in flashy colors but if you were elected dolphins think that was such an overpriced that you worked often sat out in public and people made a big deal out of that what you wanna Wear on your -- time out out the city -- walking around. I don't profitable when you're doing a press conference in Iraq presenting your team. I do believe you should class it up a little bit I just don't understand where this conversation comes from the he's not a good leader. We're not in that locker room you don't see how comic happening in Iraq to his players to his teammates and is offensive line is wide receiver does it and is running back in his head coach Jim Harbaugh. We have no clue what -- capped an -- like about because of these story lines be based off of the way that he dresses. Look at him he's -- he's not a prototypical quarterback and he's not a leader therefore he will never be is go to Brussels do you think Russell Wilson is more mature. Icy to me. It is our best guess is it on the eye of the beholder it you can look at possible as an easy he wears a suit he seems more policies more mature. I don't know with these guys are like how they're spending their money I mean there's a lot yeah and -- stopping just superficial you know yeah. And outlets this yes Russell Wilson has more mature but I never sat down and have a conversation with -- I see that it sounds stupid and where they're really does and I get it I don't even wanna say who I think is more because I mean there are so many to -- there are so many aspects of maturity and that going do it with. How you handle personal relationships where your finances are going we know Russell Wilson -- -- got divorced this summer. I don't care about that. Maturity level people will see it on TV and say Russell Wilson. He doesn't use slang language he doesn't dress is certainly so he is mature more mature and that's fine but to mean there are certain aspects when you're looking at someone like Colin -- -- And there are other players who where crappy closing backwards hats. And Aaron Rodgers with the with the belt and adult celebration. To mean there are some racial motives for a lot of fans out there where they view in this app. He's an immature young. You know quarterback he's never gonna get it wears oppose a white quarterback does some of the things and it's will more than its coolest -- it was a really good player. But -- are you really can't answer who's Mormon Church we -- our conversations with -- we don't know what the personal lives are like. End this text says when it got to be urgent and attacks on -- guys in the spotlight constantly is a public figure he's got acting in the word mature suit tie Wilson stays out of the spotlight. Is it interest in necessarily off the field. -- is polarizing. Because he's more likely to be featured and used different -- gap pretty cute yes unlike anybody we've ever seen it's late that is positioned for great personality standpoint. From the his gazelle like stride that's -- will -- -- is a great quarterback but we've seen kind of the mold of Russell Wilson. Guy before we haven't necessarily seen -- governor I will say this of their has to be. It's you you can argue the rules you can argue the system you could try and change it you could try and fight it or you can embrace it. And say there are times where I will given taken the bet I -- best example I could -- is if you. -- tattoo guy and you wanna have tattoos in the corporate workplace or wherever you got to understand that if you do that. There are certain people in certain businesses and companies for sure that are going to hold that against. But if it means enough to you that eat it matters to you that you want to get tattoos on your body that are visible. In the corporate world. You're entitled to decent but no that that's gonna be held against you it's -- to what Colin cabernet. You you can do those things but you have to know whether it's fair or not that those will be held against the things that you do with the actions that you take. Will be held against you there are so I I do hold. -- responsible slightly because he knows the rules he knows the system. And he chooses not to. Kind of play by the rules I respect our guys are respected yeah maybe he just doesn't care maybe he's my son you only do me I don't care what anybody does does have to understand some of the ramifications that come with a look. I agree completely when you talk corporate rubble when you look sports I just I can't make -- -- out because I I I completely eager to talk about sitting in a corporate -- mean there are certain things you can't cannot do when if you wanna -- that that's your own opinion but when -- when that text said and you just read it. Wilson stays out of the spotlight he is an agency not to -- let me ask you this question. You flip that you guys off seasons -- -- what was the main offseason storyline around happening was listed -- Miami right in TMZ sports Johnson said he raped a girl in Miami. What was the main storyline around us was this offseason and children of divorce from him yet no ads off the -- -- he was at a divorce right you flip those two is a conversation different. Sit Russell Wilson's in that hotel room what's the media conversation to people jump to rape allegations right away no bid contract critics -- he gets divorced what's the com. Scared -- -- but we didn't start from square one there was a history that was yes otherwise and I'm just saying it's an -- Brett while you've always been admit there's like with Russell Wilson's divorce I immediately jumped to you. Who knows maybe his wife cheated maybe he cheated maybe two or -- rumor yet a Golden Tate rumor was one that we don't know the situation behind. Why he got divorce is not fair or -- all that against him but I immediately I don't meet personally I immediately go and defend Russell Wilson. Right don't necessarily defend Colin -- -- in the same way where there was that story Miami a couple of meant. We got to see the facts here and how this plays out where act I don't meet personally that I think there's a a bias towards Russell Wilson based -- And everything -- social perceptions to me RNC and that's what elect and ultimately what do we what do women dying mouth for 25 minutes now. Men's fashion and -- how they're shown on -- government magazine but it does go deeper and especially in sports where people are looking for leaders of their favorite teams. And it's the littlest things that we judge these guys on and -- -- -- -- example -- -- not wearing a shirt. Russell Wilson is one guys -- -- one way the other guys portrayed as a -- I mean they're really are two different ways to look at this. Both guys have their demons but active social perception Samir the most interesting things. To discuss and think about based on what you just said right there Russell wasn't at the divorce she -- -- so we don't know how what happened she was mean what happened can't -- Bernie gets in the situation as well don't put yourself in that situation -- won't happen you idiot wind ultimately united has been in a hotel and some stupid -- -- this -- invited the girl over there are no lock it. -- happy that's all I am I'll never know nothing about it at I'll bring back some of the comments from -- Abraham who is Downey he runs the USC football dot com website inside Troy he's where he's out on Twitter. They give us an update on the Josh shot story from USC. And also Josh Gordon's the suspension upheld that's next here's Joey was sports. Then towards dirt and spray just served up by Buffalo Wild Wings on ESPN's Sports Radio 1080 welfare and -- up as the world champion Judah Friedlander you're listening to. And -- Dirt got fired. These were jobs going higher -- Just to stay away from the guy that ESPN's Sports Radio to any of the thing and now with their target. And. Tomorrow college football is going it'll be very college football heavy showed tomorrow got a lot of NFL stuff today. The we'll get a preview a lot of that means tomorrow as it kicks off at 3 o'clock say congratulations to you -- the hardworking Americans it will not be able to watch the start of constant. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I don't again lead correct in that assumption that you say what's so what's your late you know I think you're going to stretch there. Stretch we had Brian Abraham on the show -- he runs USC football dot com he's on Twitter at inside try to run Torre probably seem a lot. And he gives an update on what's going on with Josh -- Yet not really good fortunate we thought we -- resolution or any kind of got their stories straight at telescoping -- they're still in a holding pattern right now -- his work. That there any preparation they get they're trying to gather my temperament and the camp they're putting up to the proper campus authorities and he doesn't have an -- they wanted to try to talk all about. All -- and how you know they don't want this to be a distraction but all the media their -- had to -- 5060 members of the media. Cameras everywhere biggest reached even here are never prologue on. -- to the Pete Carroll days. He went on to talk about what does bring anyone as well I was either way he's at that I would say it was a year fall be relied. Yeah we had -- -- on any told us about Josh shock yet you know not really. -- -- it is what it was solid but they like his update was he didn't have a statement is a bit back a it is funny we did ask him about his. Here he is a great -- are better player Cabrera he'd paper. Under -- -- you spent a leader on the U transfered from Florida -- fired beer. You've got a cult or are different -- current quarter. Under current potential that you go to by the game. And it -- -- -- already got a -- so they don't freshmen become occupants under Lang. Mr. everyone noted that the all around good guy so that's why it was so believable it just that topic. Like Josh all. And finally if he believes his story. I don't really believe art in its entirety and I've talked a lot of different people about it I got word of that somewhat gone -- -- -- article -- -- -- -- through cardboard cut out. -- as wide open it would story that was brokered by the university and restrict its rapid. A little bit more board -- try to beat PR people but trying to beat -- it just didn't quite sit right with me get all the people that I talk. If not updated real quick on the Josh Josh story was that he jumped out of the second story window. To help save his drowning nephew seven year old nephew. But that turns out that's probably not the case so they're trying to figure out what exactly took place but he very bizarre story. -- continues to evolve and they're not gonna have any kind of resolution in Europe -- -- and say there at USC football like Condit they don't really have any resolution and he is a a key part to what they -- on. Bizarre is the right -- to explain it really is that nobody knows what's going on -- this thing broke two days ago we talked about yesterday on the show and we would hope we haven't answered right now -- -- at this point at least about what's happened but now. They're taken it out and they're saying hey it's going to be campus -- he's now going to be solving this unfortunately it sounds -- not gonna have an answer -- -- -- went on the campus PDA and again and -- I am I'm not quite sure what's gonna go on there and then you know I I generally do feel bad for for US he'd -- and -- having to go through this is Alex. In Chip Kelly defendant in originally why Chip Kelly defended -- -- tonight and he will air of I don't have to do with it. If you're coaching -- -- believe your player I do know I'm not a science are to some people but if the guy comes in to say I got to sprained ankles -- had to do this -- jump out of the window like my nephew was it was drowning had to go and save them you'd. Well -- you know -- he would -- the support to -- immediately say you're a -- knowing that would that would be the first in the -- in my mind especially sensibly talked to Wilcox -- Brothers IBC down there and Abraham brought it -- everybody has good things to say about this -- everybody what he's great to deal -- he's got -- -- personality he's been through a lot in his life phenomenal player phenomenal player is not exactly so everything that we've heard about this kid is that he's a good player and in he would wanna rush to conclusions that something -- was going on. It's an unfortunate situation -- they have Fresno state this week's -- if there is a bit of a hang over a cloud over this. They don't have to worry about elect are they shouldn't at least have to worry about a letdown game against Fresno jail now but I I really do feel -- -- that coaching staff because you're in a lose lose situation here. I think -- the bottom of the facts and -- they're sitting and talking with him and he's not gonna give them the honest truth. Especially if he's lying about the original stories so it's gonna take a lot of sort this thing out it really. Is just one of the weirdest stories that we've encountered probably since may anti tail and make -- the line what's going on nobody knows. But elated now it's such an opportunistic. Situation for so many media members we -- -- Twitter account of some -- girl down in LA. That we haven't heard of sands but she had sources that we're saying. And the law enforcement by all reports thus far. Has nothing to release and I even involved in LA immediately LAP whatever they didn't have the law enforcement to that extent the police officers. I -- involvement in this case we just heard yesterday from people timeouts sources say. The police DMZ sports on his big rant about how he was involved in a robbery and he was a suspect. That turned out to be false is just to mean there's there's a difference we team to finding facts in and digging for the truth. And then there's a difference between. Jumping on a story to try to get notoriety and publicity and Twitter follows any job or FaceBook likes or whatever else you're in the you're searching for. And we've got to a point where we have really. It just makes them all together and we can't find the truth anymore because so many people are after. Just fame and publicity than they really are after the truth of why he sprained his ankle yet I just. If that was a true story and that was the end of it. We wouldn't be in this spot I'm not calling you know I'm not seeing what he sings the truth as USC came out and got ahead of this thing there are people though that are out there and they don't care about why he -- spring is ankles they're making up stories and sources. So they can gain notoriety and Twitter followers it's sad to say that. But that's the reality of the world we live in that. No idea that I did they analyze this gallon Twitter to tweet it out yesterday she said she had the sources by the way I did note -- essay she is very attractive -- he has credibility. Credibility guy. Ceasing all I know why -- has been sidelined game is not their -- so yeah cowboy picture. Constantly in a backpack -- she had to we needed to talk about the local. Look like they're running memory rather it's not a little look zealot I'd just done that picture she treated for what it's worth the girl's uncle and it's -- not -- your overall I'd trust the people I spoke to in their information that being said at the very least clearly something is up. That was her follow that your way of saying I have no that was -- followed tweeted this to lead sources Josh I was involved in an incident involving domestic abuse and jumped -- the third story window while running from the LA beat -- She hasn't been yet the LAPD came out today for what it's nothing she trust the media for what it's -- whenever it starts off with for what it's worth it it's never going back. Or what it's worth we USA fantasy football draft party -- -- break the world record we'll discuss that next and fancy football draft strategy also Josh Gordon's suspension. And the end the NFL suspension of Josh Gordon had a decision today on the you'll update you won that next as well what's the hardest thing to do in baseball or -- -- in sports. Pro baseball not buying lots and -- that covers. Some mistakes. Defects it. -- This is college kicked off week John Danforth -- and spray rusty by Ron Tonkin died Saudi ESPN's Sports Radio Jay Nady both friend. -- it's -- that are really cool party. That's happening tonight said it's our fantasy football draft party. At -- district Buffalo Wild Wings so if you're -- last seconds. And you don't have the fancy league let us now is just a couple hours to get there but they're looking forward our fancy football draft tonight. And for fantasy football owners if he did Josh Gordon. -- you may be in trouble because he is suspended for the entire season unifil said no thank you. On the appeal yeah I don't blame them at all whatsoever it's it's a personal responsibility story you get. You can't keep smoking weed when you know you can't do -- you can say it's unfair all you want but the guy said warning sign after warning sign after warning sign. Dating back to high school to college to when he got to the Cleveland Browns at this has been nonstop storyline surrounding his football career. Well this is a lesson you know we we heard a lot about the Cris Carter story -- -- when he got in inducted in the hall of fame last year. It kind of brought back the memories of the start of his career and all the -- the trials and tribulations he went through when he was in Philadelphia and Buddy Ryan cut Ayman. Says investing and perhaps for his career and I think Josh corn should get cut but at some point you gotta get these guys awake up call -- missing an entire season and in potentially missing part of next season. As an affable wake up caught on tonight at DL did you meet -- I would not be drafting. Well I look Josh Gordon's an interesting subject case not to me for the NFL and how they do punishments because it's in the CBA drug testing is in the CBA there's no need do about that. People continue to bring up Ray Rice that's fine your views on the NFL. And if they punish people correctly was domestic violence opposed to drug testing. Finally have that opinion but that needs to be discussed and -- BA talks -- nothing anybody can do about that right now. When you're looking at Josh Gordon I generally as a sports fan and somebody who enjoys watching him. I wonder who's gonna reach out Tim who's gonna correct his wife who's gonna be there to help them because a year Roth for somebody like him. Who's been dealing with the issues since high school he dealt with a -- Baylor had to go through the supplemental draft he dealt with a local time the NFL last year suspended two games. There's somebody has got to be near his side of family whenever somebody's got to step up. And say we've got to correct that is we've got to help you as much as possible because he -- gets the year without any trouble Roger Goodell will bring him back but if he has an incident or two. There's it's not just guaranteed years he has an appeal with Roger Goodell the end of the year where Roger Goodell can say no. Turn around and go back home you're not coming in Italy somebody's got to be there to correct his life and helped give in in order because he's such a stunt on the football -- and that's somewhere where he can really capitalize with his talents. And make a ton of money you gotta save Josh -- from Josh. -- edu and there is this where people point to the NFL and and players are upset and and certain coaches are upset about some of the hits and changing the game and everything it's going on in the NFL but they've taken a beating -- this hot season. No pun intended but it's been Iraq offseason for the NFL. But the deuce side with the players and and organizations do sighted players and Josh -- is a good example has yet to be really good player. -- and even Ray Rice might be an example of this of giving some leeway where they're necessarily shouldn't be so. It's easy to kind of go after the NFL if you're on the players side of things and say. -- this is not fair go if I as a fan of this as it OK it's not fair but there is a double standard that exists. And Josh -- like 23 years old that he was a -- he would have been done a long time ago so. It is benefiting him in the fact that it's a year or. For marijuana people pointers -- you know maybe it maybe it is excessive for a year nightmare of marijuana but it is the rule and he is also lucky. To still be in the league because it was eighty lesser of a player he would not be knowing for sure -- and I. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- A couple stories at the NFL have you guys seen a story. But the stand -- got a Seahawks prosthetic eyes it's creeping me out that's disgusting easy 64 year old and you've lost in this is I mean there's part of his guys that he'd lost his right die in combat at the Vietnam war in 1969 and he had a prosthetic got. But he didn't -- any prosthetics guy with the team logo on it recently. And it is the Seattle Seahawks logo so his left -- is perfectly normal and then you look in his right guy. And all you see is just is kind of white glow. And then the Seahawks level right. And he got them from Vietnam million more. Not this that he is -- that EA he lost my designs yet it's the coolest thing in the world this is the greatest guy in the world thank you for your service I am nothing menacing about that -- his decisions. -- -- we -- the sad news service for the country -- actor prize tonight from -- -- do whatever you -- I'd probably do is set like this if I had and if I had a missing I think about put some -- would you put December's as the giants -- lost my -- -- you can make it -- I -- like stitches -- -- -- like a baseball the united making it a a lazy guy and throw people off. Would you know these -- know. We've had this debate all -- on what's the most difficult thing to do in sports dirt maintains -- hitting a baseball. I think spring might be onto something with kicking a field like kicking a field goal is not an extra point we're coming out and thirty yard field do you feel those maybe not even in the top ten of toughest things to bringing in China that things are -- a forty -- re turning a -- -- serve in tennis now. Not harder these guys struggle is I've done a -- turning a hundred hours on a hundred -- and I might be more difficult than baseball needs to stop there okay look at this look at the circumference of a tennis racquet than a baseball bat and tell me what's harder yet to make a lot of sense does it. I'm sorry stopping slap shot hockey a lot harder than -- out of here you got. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Eminem -- humble brag here I've kicked juggled before. That are not that hard -- a lot harder for me Joey who's your favorite when your -- sports teams in Portland. Was harder for me is it is dollar law -- he's a soccer player that doesn't jingle all 300 yards I think it's way out of winning field goal. Yeah I agree with that completely it's way harder and it's also way harder than hitting a baseball. Now driving a golf ball 300 yards is harder than being a baseball yeah isn't that. Are you Q and you just really a conversation I can drive a golf ball 300 yards -- Hardest thing to do is force a high fives I'd do everything he -- -- I'll 300 RT how much you wanna bet. Erden didn't know serious amateur that we already got a bit mean we have to -- -- is that an event with a three hour drive. Now I guarantee you regular golf he's a well how many swings -- union won one I was playing. Are they 3000 dollars students who are -- -- Audio out I -- -- digging our at this football draft tonight of that again at the lake district Buffalo Wild Wings are setting world record.
