Two down. Two to go double coverage here. On W did well enough in the dot com T Bob Hebert crushing Garrick in. Men. So team out snuck in there that team USA's down forward and nothing but the game's over and hope oh it's over a way to. Well that's exactly my point is tell your country really pay attention until it out I'll give me the stars and stripes argument it's the soccer argument. That's really what it's about and held by the way. To be fair I don't necessarily have cable. I'll answer your yeah you cut the cord and regret to civil and uh oh it's just. Yet still a bit of millennium that's yours yet US falls to Argentina. Four male has meant he becomes. The greatest scorer in our urgent need in history. Having scored now 55. Goals. For the Argentinian men's national team he has five goals in this Copa America tournament alone he had a goal and two assists tonight. He's by far. Deemed it will not by far I mean the best in the world covers each and and Christian but when you look at Al Christian and Portugal are struggling in the Euro cup. Verse Al legal Massey and the number one ranked team in the world Argentina. Are performing in the Copa America. Site from the argue that easy. Probably do a job that's just the one headline news involving in Argentina siege is yours and not allow. But but whatever let them messy. I think he's vastly rubble state. Lot of reaction. On line whatever Twitter of course where I mean like people legitimately upset win this game with the outcome. In pseudo released what it's template and Tim didn't just added he was my year and he's right he's debt to do the American mentality. Just expecting to win no matter what but in any other sport Christian. What would you expect when the 31 rate team goes up against the number one ranked team. And the third anniversary team has three of their best starters on the bench duties pigeons. I'd be down. Right like the US. Was ever going to win this game like we did this just for fun at this point they've done they've accomplished what they needed to a cubs images clearly outclassed. By Argentina doesn't help when your when you lose the players and John Brooks and Bob would that have arguably been your best resources for. This entire Copa America tournament so I don't. Whatever I I don't really care about the result too much tonight I'll be interested to see what happens in the Chile Colombia gain TCF. You know with the US land a plane Saturday night in the third place game but. Despite the four dale exit would should be noted is not as bad as losing seven dale. Like Mexico did. Despite the four male exit this is still a successful. Tournament for. The United States men's national team do you learn tonight. Why women Telekom cut got you dancing at so and I'm not trying to challenge you on just those that might be to an insane. Will team up wise as successful. Okay it's usually dormant all the time to question of expectations. We are not a soccer first conjured dad's athletes do not go into football like just because. You're the you know the biggest superpower in the world money political and military and economic. I understand what that does it mean that you're just going to be good. At a certain sport and not winning come what do you mean at that site that. Now if you play OK outside they did that just the guys that I can documenting your resurgence you don't have kids growing up. You know play inside from the time that they learn how to I don't know those numbers start to turn though yes yes and like we said it's going to its slow process though it's not an overnight. Like everybody wants to make it out to be this or microwave. Right. It's sports X gets a pretty just consisting growth. Over the past 2030 years of escorted into it and I think a lot more people are coming around too because it is. Very fun to watch immediate really it's against spectator as they get older and white's case. I don't know I just hate commercials but I by myself increasingly attracted. To this game because it is it is action figure. There are no breaks in the action except for halftime up editors of but the bottom line. Is that talent wise the US is just not even on the scene play. As someone like Argentina. And you could keep your beaten standard complaint that it should be Giffords were the United States and you just come off like Regina phobic or child. Please see phobic yes as in it. It's easy to vote is. Where you're late get I guess so in love with your own country. That you. It's still like they should be patient reigns supreme over about what you hate people from other countries as it enters your exact definition. Xena bogeys in tents or rational dislike or the year of people from other countries it would yet even you'd. America may be the greatest superpower in the world but we're not the best at soccer not even close. You know it's it's a few bombs so we talk about how I kind of got away from cable and you mentioned how. It's a fast paced team. Why haven't I gone. Got on and it sounds like I've should be on idol a quick look a little quicker because. How quickly moves because it's one of the re well lack got rid of cable would result commercials and making DVR knowledge of the ultimately it was about saving money but it's because I didn't wanna be in erupted I want appeal watch. Yes quickly will that so that's one thing that I've always come here intriguing. Is that a lot of Americans seem complaints about the game. Are on the exact same complaints that people from other parts of the world have about our version of football. I was talking to some englishman Hayward based easing you know I just. I cannot watch mayor of Opel because it's so boring it's so slow to take breaks every plays its commercials every five minutes. So it does it look it's it's a question of perspective it's a question of personal taste. That's only one at a time when the have to like soccer like me and you just don't do immediately we don't. You could not likes of the that is. That is Welling good but up I do like this sport and I find myself increasingly intrigued by and I really like watching. The US team because you have a vested interest at that point I think it's a meals and holds a lot of people out is well. Is that you can watch game and not really care who wins but when you're now talking about international play that's obvious easily that easily relatable. Now do you recognize though that a part of the issue where is it soccer. In the Americans. In ability maybe to be a low Argentina and others because. How readily available soccer might be in other countries because. If we can't admit one thing we can we have did not acknowledge that. It's an easier sport to play to cheaper sport to play. To low overhead sport you don't need yeah. Equipment you need a bull and you can practice you don't even need a ball army can make the ball out of anything you want ESP two sticks for goal. It is it is a testament to. Mayor can economics that American football that's pretty big country in the in the manner that it does because yes this is not a in laughable is not a sport. That you can just fun and music tonne of equipment cause world these deep caves. Injury risks and yeah acting. In most countries around the world yes Christians to answer your question. I'd think you'd struggle. That you gave a agency knows a lot of places around the world that you used were like American football program work sent by injuries the bigger part of it. Is just how your race com this is a country that. I guess Wayne sports and entertainment started to get pushed more and more to the forefront of society as America continue to grow older and all of it. We just gravitated towards our own sports and makes a bit incidents when you look at Howell. Removed the United States is brought in other ports world from some of those European countries and so we had baseball which was. America's pastime and then you add the rise of football which is America's pres those are both. Mayor Kim you've material ones rugby and once treatment they're both Americans Spain's. On previous sports like yeah we we like our. Home grown sports here and it's led to generations of children don't really care. About football. Growing up as this world it's all they care about programs and that's the biggest reason in my opinion. For the disparity I mean you watch one like either mean. In this in the bonds happens of carriers in. Grows up. Plain soccer how good look at the only is he DU re exactly if he didn't you know like legal messy though. What does that look at that point and insurance that'd be fascinating. Be fascinating to watch. Are certainly coming back for fate sweaters won a couple of US soccer also it is through this PF death. Pro football focus dot com article on Drew Brees why agrees is still. Italy QB double coverage to about a Christian here on W did well enough and a a you'll lose your mind throughout. Now problem. A yeah I fly out Isaac got my US means Jersey on. In Tokyo is. USA stars structure that he had on he took it often used Q dale. So he built you up that quickly yes he'd been hailed the very quickly on his country only sport winners here. That I'm actually a lot of the fun in there's going to be a lot of you lose daylight. You know news to watch tonight the first time law others gimmick that would be the boss able to us once again out here so. It's an apex NC all pigs are the issue in not to like in the night. Let me give you for you not to be into it. I just don't wanna gamble is one of those people that likes to get this person that's my target was soccer fans yes honestly I exotic ran it down your throat yes they're like you just don't do it irk you just don't understand and I used to be that person. And I finally woke up when they'd take the people can just be intimately. I'm not into regular season College Baseball field really. Once the stakes get a little bit higher in the playoffs and their people who love race season companies have a great point there. He's just dead. Car batteries sensible what do they do well Lou it's the stimulation that they aren't hit balls and my allies say that. It might be a bit early because we're not a midnight madness quite yet had a that is one of the prima spots to applied to clamp yes. It's. I don't I don't eat judiciary. Years you and England's. Sexual transgressions. Is that the right. Or his transgressions would imply something wrong like it's too would every year to me and I'd date you Christians like to get engaged in a little while and actually know. I'm at a stop myself. That none other. I thought no let up finish that thought because I want to hear where this is go I don't own it collecting gates July. I. As you know my warped sense of morality can. Well yeah as far as the general public is sometimes we read policy I'd eyes so killing agree that that's determined that madness maybe. Can you may come up with a way through her thank you text you when it was going to a yes or maybe we can come up with a way to soften it did but he urged the pre. You know we take X you know had to take sweater what's up you're on W ago. Keep up on in the market arc he's. It's called the report on the game. And it was you that's your I don't know if on television. Are complete dismantling. Aaliyah in our G stadium right now. Content itself with the board ratings go and where here and there. And it's it's. True north and there was a Spanish soccer fan. All we. It is. I'll watch hockey. Out. All. We we we broke. It's a whole way. Britain and game would like. OK suppose the atmosphere like like those that's what I want. We represented well we have had. Over at every. Probably forty or Ottawa were there as well. It was well. Activated by at the order. On the field. It was or how how amazing was a mess eagle where you seeded in this hour. Literally twenty yards behind a lot. Opposed. On dealing Bragman and Gordon. Thanks record you are divvied bread queues and like. Like lied game tips he's. Bryant killed outright that a chemical or must stop what you what are the thing of beauty and they like and these are going. I'll pose this question CPC Mike US men's national team pan has the US team. Ever had a player capable of making that shot. I don't think so either and I really don't know and I'm not taking a wait so hard it's figure that corner the US have. As nice early date. Yes they've scored three giggled before but the quality. Of that shot that he's the place and the accuracy it was like snipers like watching me. Master archer it was well is nothing to Butte. And it master archery and not a lot of talk here. Who's the rock. Ads via no way. The Clorox. Com. Oh how much have you all had to drink tonight how much it. Is it to me that. All along let me let me ask you started Kenya and what they tied the game. Or it's. It isn't dangerous territory players are gonna put them on hold face letters letters bedrock big obstacle. Due. Hold down energy stated nagging drown your sorrows and call Christmas. Yesterday Lee who's the rock that we animal before I don't I manage it sounded like back in the day he's been on injuries and a member of that pro town talk. Career record okay so how can you say that your back when you have a really good on IE and Michael X I think you're. It's a bit like the warcraft movie that came out the other day this is a newbie that in about sports in humans fighting each other as it Bobble Bobble ba. My wife and dale movie turns me in she asked me questions about one know why why did this in the and I said you know what they've I think this is them to be where. It's just better to did not think about any just just turn up your brain. Just turn up your brain and just enjoy it. No CS like aliens really really Smart and really really into into. Society if she wants to ask questions as to what she's seeing. And where we're I think we're all obligated to do that so that's why ultimately the rock I mean eat come on and with his grandiose so all the rock as a return but. The rock never really that's. Saying you're looking for logic in the ramblings of as drunken man etc. That's my greater point. I got a so. Final words go on the US team look at the it was a held term. You can be disappointed in the because they got beat so bad acting people wanted to bid the better showing. But we do your best starters including the players who really has been on fire for his turn it. Don't get to play your 31 the world going up in chief first team the world with the best player. In the world. I think anybody should be too shocked by this outcome and you have to remember the date the US steel one. They're qualifying group. Day. They made it to the semifinals. For the first time in over twenty years. So that's an improvement and you had some good young pieces moving forward. Into that twenty team World Cup although could I mean let's be honest and be the next and the really talk about them will be in two Summers. Win the World Cup is back. But I'll be intrigued TC. How this roster shapes above the couple years because this protester at least. It was kind of a mixture of the old guard well welcoming the new guard of US soccer and I wonder how much of that old guard. Stays on your Clinton squad for the next two years because as a remember with an adopted situation Clinton has new issue. Moving on from players that. They and he digs aren't good enough anymore even it they are. Like a mere negligence. All right so I had to tilt the only eighteen ultimately warm up to soccer. We will probably not talk men's nationally we know we see Euro cup to talk about till July 10. And I'll too lightly has held a debut you're cut today probably won't talk Olympics damaged him. Because it's it's only under 21 rated but not professional players on the of yours up the Olympics. And us. Of the Olympics so. I I know you and I talked about it off the end of the day but just quickly. So there's athlete obligations their media obligations and there's a ton of risks going into. You know the Olympics. If you work a media member assigned to cover the Olympics which ago considering. He is eco virus here in all us the would you would you boycott it. Up well OK so littler these are this all I know about Rio right now. Is really what I've heard in headline to have not done. A deep died yet they don't feel you know very educated on the situation. But what I've seen you know there's. There's a conversation there's I don't know whether I would go or not but you have complaints about the facilities I've been up to par. I know the water that a lot of the advances for us to take place in is like. Very polluted to dangerous levels he and I have Rio asking for emergency funding. From other countries because they irony that money you had a jag wire shot or killed today. The mascot of the real Olympics they have mean. This thing is a cluster cuss in every sense of the word. And so I won two. To talk Rio because there's so many. Interesting conversations to have. And no it's look in the in the in the there's always the conversation about do these. These big events whether it be the World Cup brother. To support him because it seems like what you see is. And preparations these events you know blood you billion budget money is spent. However you have a lot of people pushed out of may be where they're living in the end. Just a couple of years later when everybody's gone home music these giant empty buildings a giant in the stadiums so yes we will do. A deep dive and Rio but if I was covering it for me personally I would ago. Almost probably no matter what because that would be just. Pretty crazy it's duke over the Olympics. Okay well fine. I would its outlook without a doubt say no I'm not expose myself to. Those kind of health wrists I mean in particular it. Does he can virus is pretty. It's pretty substantial and it's pretty alarming when you look at the numbers and look at that time a doctor I kinda. Now army rule have time to to explore this little little in debt and just want to see your surface level. Calm reaction to the idea that you could look I would I mean look. Fire me honestly don't don't semi there I'm not doing it and water you've covered the Olympics multiple times that you never covered it. We have for the first time I think yeah I had a okay yeah maybe you do but for me if I'm looking at a health risks risks that are. Associated with the now I'm not doing it. Why don't you'll see in me X you're the sports are two -- make it happen. I didn't report alive that is gloss over that you really wanna joke is not my deal may happen a hall of computing Adolf. Easing you got some poll in this. Now now now I am editor Rea they would reject that got a lot for what what do you know about Islam. Malia Obama you talked about the medals with that let me do on the ice when they do on the ice where they do and this figures. No and that figure skating. We all know what they did they got a bunch of bruises on the ice and they'll like yeah. Sharing that currently in this early Summer Olympics that is firmly plant in the Winter Olympics are on. Delta is insane about Rio. And we exe shows ping pong is really a sport yes he blog is still believe in the Olympic games but. One that we talked a few weeks ago. For an hour on the show was the fact that Russia was in deer in serious trouble being banned from the Olympics as an outcome to as. Do you use him as state wide urged unity state sponsored. Doping scandals mean. Everything you saw in the rocky and Drago hat like was really get on an aide busted board big ways ago. Yes Russia has been gay and from the summer Olympic track and field and well I don't what whatever I mean you know I don't feel bad view that broke the rules. It would suck like Russian athletes you'd minority. If you really did. Do you immediately what you were they are taking drugs. All the building all week it means that Russia yes that is easy deuce eight. But you have to imagine like anything else is going to be allies people who did I dealing incredibly. Feel very empathetic. For the person who has worked your entire life to you this moment in an added take it away by powers outside of their control that's. What the hell you do. Russia. I don't feel bad for them also about them today they've always done that they've always operated with. The cloud. Condoms it's you know performance enhancing steroid era. I it's been existence for a long and it's why rocky. And rocky five Iraqi Fordham who brought before. Highlighted because they've been known in the US that's our way back when they existed. Was it was a big part of that that he be worthy. The front runners in the steroid era if you wanna be honest. Well it's never really left. Hey only so big sweater terrible for a quarterback's face whether so look it's an out like Nadal I wanna ask you because you're talking about gaining you know and Russia's been banned apparently so. Take sweaters that he finally do enough to get banned here by impromptu throwing rock on. I'm I wait no we do not needed and sweater or yet even as he gave us a live report from now RG stayed on him. Now he gave us the heart of the matter that he was coaching Brad used and now I think that the fifteen day suspension I think that the fifteen day. Suspension from double covered him that he didn't drop an F bomb this time can't be bad sweaters leash are writes a five days. An anemic here anymore. Five days spent four face voters I come back Drew Brees why he still in the league quarterback. You're on WWL in government. He got from time to time you and I cannot pull our hat hair out whenever we get a text or call aren't we saying it. It Drew Brees slit being ego raid in why's he so beloved that settlers veteran those are. Maybe the minority in terms of those that question Drew Brees but pro football focus that are kind of a deep dive they they and analyze the the numbers as to. Group reason is he still in the leak quarterback in. Eight conclude that he certainly is that what stat that I found HD from this PFF oracle adults and Utley to me here just a couple minutes but. It says since 2009 Brees is ranked in the top six of EFF quarterback raids every season. He's been set up for it deep accuracy is six the past seven seasons. And has six top three finishes. And it just that completion percentage and at PF that era so those and meet. Pro football focus is speaking of numbers analytics etc. we would all agree that. But that that statistic that little blurb that speaks. Volumes as to. When you're projecting a grade or you're projecting it declined an eagle at the further detail as to. Why is eight ultimately doesn't matter at 37. But we hear those stats about as we get the field we we feel the phone call all the time. And text message about how Drew Brees is losses arm strength but the numbers don't bear that out so that's why. I wanted to highlights of this house. Are you telling me but at quarterback completed 68%. Of his passes for 4800. Yards and threw. Three touchdowns or every one interception 101 QB rating are you tell that he's still lead. Yeah I'm not a Earth's shadow by pro football focus. Yeah look I think it is there is that we so now. Needs one like yep two confirm this fact or is it looked at like. Like music person there are a lot that. Do you believe you breezed to be a bit of the problem here in new ones he's not getting it just simply. Not the case it remains as ridiculous as it was he needs aid stats aren't everything. What about is that it's he seemed tired arguments that like we said earlier used against him Simmons talk about the priority list. And we're breeze raids and it's incredibly impacted that the Geary. Very bottom may be the one thing. That you can hold. Against Brees injured or instincts and is now the fact that. He has he's got a thirty million dollars of the cap for this one year alone but. Here's the deal I'm not going to fault a guy for maximizing his value I'm not going to fault a guy for gaining aid. What he is or I don't think that's wrong and I think when you. Looking at fault dead even a faulty organization to this date that they can trust to discuss this contract I agree and and and we also. Always have to keep in mind that juror breeze has a responsibility. To his fellow teammates. He is a for an excuse me to his fellow league mates. He was one of the the highest ranked guys in the half hour highways he had the players' association. To. Girl he was at one point the new world player representative and then I believe on the council if you will. A long steep twelve representatives so you think about that. There's a there's 16100 players in the league he was in the top twelve in terms of voices well that shows you the clout he adds. Our hat and so my point being is that he represents the union he rep presidencies bill union members. And as a member of the union. What's best for everybody else. He's too yeah it is to get paid as much as someone is willing to offer you because it drives up the price. Of everybody else and everyone's in what about Tom Brady what about number eight Tom Brady is the exception not the rule Tom Brady's deal did not come to his agent at age you would ever make. That deal. Number also has additional streams of revenue we are different ways of Egypt are finding. A different kind of ways to pay him and they're circumventing this hour now beyond. On top of that all I can get to deal that originates between conversations. Between craft and Brady in fact. If you were a player in this league if you worry quarterback you're incredibly upset with Tom with what Tom Brady has done. Because he has thrown quarterback pricey into limbo. The reason why. Now we're seeing guys like rock guys are making nearly as much as quarterbacks who wore. Vastly superior. Is that the best quarterback in the league Tom Brady refuses to be paid. What he is working and what's that crew went has created is a logjam. At that position where the market for quarterbacks is theory tops are very confusing. There upside down. Right now so I don't fault any bets may be marketers of being getting fresh new breeds of the most legitimate talking point they had but in my opinion. I cant full demand for gaining what he's. The training camp schedules out for the new policies and it's the first time I think I've covered teams certainly in they've held joint practices with both are with two teams Houston Texas and in or wall actually. The patriots in the Houston Texans I guess that's really what make it's extinct for this team he about knowing that they're going to be up against. The likes of Tom Brady than JJ watt so that. That might be one of the highlights that that sinks its patent. And got to go full disclosure here. Was not listen new word you said those effects. I don't blame you because it really wasn't that fascinating. And full disclosure. Your full disclosure it. OK so astrologers renowned chief. Creep in Johnson girls Twitter Wednesday parched so I'll probably closes with a hazel let's take that vote focus focus focus focus. Right so. I guess my point is the training camp schedule is out for the saints and that they'll open all the 28 in the creek park but the M. Joint practices it's the patriots and also the Houston Texans so I guess you get an idea. It's just how good they are. Intricate that might be the highlight of training camp with two practices against the patriots. And through its attacks yeah I mean it now didn't they had they brings in but the team's last bell as well just one that's why it was it's kind of an unprecedented move so to speak to practice that joint practice with two different. Look I mean of an impact I think it's nice. To get those competitive juices flowing when you bring in another team the practice kind of becomes more. Then just to practice it also allows you to compete against players that you are going against every day. So you don't have that familiarity you may not know their skill set they removed said. Quite as much so yeah I mean it's not negative will make the saints like really good though. Now I mean I united. I'm gonna make him to improve but. As he said this team this is a New Orleans Saints team that could lead to be better than last year but they very well could end up with the exact same recorder maybe even a worse record I still like overall though. The direction that the rosters don't. IG to Guerrero you're up next here on double coverage to about Christian this is WW LA anathema dot com. Them kids some heat for saying I would not goats go real for the Olympics for us. Zeke if I'm not the Ozzy Meyers. Yes well you would would you tell you're gonna that you wouldn't go low on the island memories so abide by that welcome back double coverage to you got to Christen it oh. They were talking about. Well doesn't mean where's it coming from an icy yet York and worked center. It won't get you I don't. I'm not in the Marines anymore I did my time son I worry about all of them bull at least your cats you better I would say. That. Well now I can flat out automatic fun come on their team is always go line light. Got to jump over Australia had to go for it and he outsmarted yourself this like. I put myself out there and judges completely dropped the ball. At that showed up at ounces and you got to play piano and and not seen. Gene of Guerrero here on W oh what's that gene. You know Christian and did it. To inaugurate an owner. And he's such a nice night. And I don't see why he's so excited to about oh wait you don't have to go. Onto that. I. Back to 920. 227. They report to camp and I'll have a conditioning test Mickey Loomis Sean Payton. Will hold the press conference they ultimately won't tell us anything and then when he airport a practice. I'm going to be cool as they got to them and do. Yeah yeah that here it's it's. The tigers are Mike Mike Mike the tiger Mike the tiger he is alive. Unlike the Rio jaguar mascot. He is doing okay. Yeah yeah I mean it's it's it's magic. It's going to have a a sad indeed but he has lived a long and fulfilling life and I you know hopefully. LG tiger below to get a lot of successes balls and a spin him out on the right now. The more more I think about it. T about the more more I think that maybe L issues not going to Q another tiger at the Mike six passes the more I. I think about elegant the that is what was I going to make fun of you Ford just like thirty seconds ago exec thought it was very funny and it's really frustrated me that I dropped the ball. How is the point is that usually enjoy your day I go and I organized as it did but whatever I need to wait. Some also Margaret real quick that idea that it's and we're going to talk but not really until it passes by yes it looks. In today's day and age it's going to be increasingly. Tough for Ellis you you get another like tiger. Just because of the way that societies can going to mean they RD faces an uphill battle last and they managed to win. I still think though I still would say that it's more likely than not. That in the end there will be another might imagine. I don't know the more more I think about it more more I think that Ella she's gonna. Succumbed to public pressure to not have AF caged tiger down in Baton Rouge. Double coverage midnight madness coming up here on WW LA anathema to be to build like come.
