Would you like to see the NFL allow coaches to challenge. Penalties that you can go online at WWL dot com or you can simply follow me acoustic zero -- seventy. 8668908. So many text from the at age 7870. Mean how many times have you bill bin at a game or watching the game one TVs. Man. Everybody yells -- both parents and you see the replay is not really an apparent or vice Versa. In all holding and then you'd see the replay in the one confined holding so why not let coaches I'm not actually an increase. The number of child to put one not let coach's challenge penalties and you think that's a good idea. Or a bad but it would have ample lines opened at 26 year old -- 7866. And 90 it's evident. And if you have if you have good news story just. Just. Something you wanna share what this it was a call and then after that will will get in two of the regular subjects for the night too -- generally -- seventy. 866890870. Bob Mitchell Stewart show and WW well. And I'm Bob petrol imports do tonight here are full numbers. 260187866. And -- nine awaits revenue contracts in the late seventy. Eight Sammy and I wanted to start the show tonight with just some some feel good story original. Last couple likely we talk so much of a ball prisoner. Swap I thought would be a good idea of slumping economy for Russia -- bit and just something maybe that could happen commute today in the past couple days. Of the the past week or so maybe one of you have -- a kid that you wanna taken to gradually that kid that it's something that maybe somebody did something. But Korea and what natives talking about this as a -- In in California. He was and drug rehab. He had no money he found a bag -- 125000. Dollars in -- and rather than keep it. -- that would have been the appropriate thing for him. He turns it in. And at this point we don't even though he received a reward but he did the right thing so if you have a feel good -- something good that happened to you. -- -- too sure about that -- -- you are only seventy. 8668890. Extremity. Here is a text message that much fun to retire from the airports. And he my daughter in law and two grandchildren are bad in the world that that early on and and you feel about that because. Two years ago on my daughter. And so on and laws and three grandsons and moved back home we also have our big it's -- pretty jaguar opinion poll question would you like to see. The NFL. Coaches that challenge. Penalties now -- have one text on that at this point it says no there's too much slowdown in the game already challenging a call on penalty would just. Lose control in the game adrenalin no because you would still have the same. Number of challenges John. Would what are your thoughts on them about an -- follow up football a lot would that be a good idea or a bad idea to let a coach's challenge penalties. I think would be a real good idea. Because. My last season when we played the -- swing. As -- It was not obvious holding call obvious the withheld than he was and barring the replay I think that you should be able to throw flags and stuff like -- Because that would have changed how completely you know a lot of games and on bad refereed calls. And I that you should be able to challenge. I don't see why not they have been occasions and it's public of football's saying that all -- The second -- gets caught how many times have you -- one -- -- -- a player and then when that player retaliates the officials. Do not see the first. A move Alexy the second was always a second right and if you were able to review that and you'd be able to see the first movement it would just be offset penalties for -- So -- -- a form of -- after years that the -- be able to review penalty calls yeah. All right 260. Well late 78668. At 90 it's somebody you can respond to that if you have a good news story. -- can let us go about that 26 year old late 78668. -- nine. Point seven and a lot of remind you. That if you can't catch your favorite WW -- -- -- You can listen to the podcast any time it's just like -- DVR you go to WW well dot com look for the big podcast button. On the top right hand corner of our front page. Or -- your labor most notably more shows and schedules and click on their name real simple and shall convenient podcast. On WWL dot com. All right here's what's on our WW LR talked table tonight the story of course was in in the news for quite some time the owner of a bakery. In Lakewood city will no longer -- wedding cakes after the -- Ronald civil rights commission ruled. He did discriminate against a gay couple when he refused to sell them mechanic. So now he's decided. That rather than half to a follow that law he's just going to stop selling wedding cakes completely. Not do you commend him. For standing up for his personal belief. Or do you think he's just coming off his nose despite his place. I commend them for standing up to his personal belief but they missed this whole situation is just absolutely insane. I think he should have the right to do that now if I go back to the original story. I went online -- -- I tried to fund the original story and likely would not -- from what I remember about the -- story when this story first broke. It wasn't -- -- that he did not want to. Bake a cake for the gay couple he just didn't want to put the two guys on top publications like I think -- a -- if memory serves me correct that even. Told them where they can go to get the little ornament to go on complicate. But I commend him Bora. Sticking to his guns. For saying this is what I believe this is my road religious belief. And rather than rather than bow down and and due to tell Leo I have to do. -- just -- Celtics so I'd like to know your opinion on that do you commend him for standing up forge personal beliefs. Party thinking of just wanted office knows despite displays 26 year old late seventy. 86689. OH seventy. And if you could write. One sentence of one sentence note of one or two so this to your younger self. What would -- say. In other words what advice. Would you give your younger self that you know now.

And there's been there is anything you do nicely correct. -- applicant could have you know that's taking Medicare. John youthful football fan -- -- -- our big 870 pretty drive -- opinion poll question is. Would you like deceit and the fellow coaches to challenge penalties let me clarify that'll that. They what we would not be adding. The number of challenges they get I think that that they get what three. Perhaps as a writer director OK so you would not change the number of challenges. But it would be that that if if if they want to challenge a penalty and some double play. I say let them do it would do use I would -- Many -- favors. Challenge in the penalty because that is about it and debate so yeah that's -- is about -- beginning. Well John not this story wasn't news for awhile back the the owner of a bakery. Says he -- mold or so wedding cakes at all. After the column Ronald civil rights commission ruled he didn't discriminate. Against a gay couple when he refused to show them -- He said it was against of religious beliefs shall now. He is not going to sell winning takes. At all so what it's gonna cost him some money do you commend him for standing up towards personal belief -- think he's just cut and -- those despite his place. I can impact and I'm very in a favorite in doing that. In fact. You can't have presidents do because it affects so few people. But yet. They had they can do this to that commandment of sameness. Enough baby -- Celtics again. Well no no no no no he's he's he voluntarily. And made a decision. Yeah so I mean -- what he's doing this is in this I believe. In my religious beliefs -- strong but I won't that the if I can't pick and choose polish solemnly -- I won't sell a little. -- there are all right John thank you for calling thank you go all right let's go to Charles Charles thanks for calling WWL tonight. I can and -- also. -- -- keep the pick and choose these these court the student and go on through all expense. Took it to themselves and I think it's a shame that. We -- -- country now where well you people dictate. The morals that are also of our society. Well what happened what happened here is that they took in the court and they ruled that he could not discriminate that if he was going to fell to. A straight couple that he had to do the same thing for a gay couple and he said the that was against his religious beliefs. And they ruled against them shall now he's saying that I believe in this so strong. I won't sell wedding cakes at all affect I think he said he would just a muffin buddies that he would not -- wedding cakes at all. Understand that but they're they're gay couple. Whoever the -- Animated issue with them dead cat -- ceremonial it is that it's just that. -- -- around -- knows what's politically correct everybody's afraid that the only thing because a political court there's now -- like. Well Orwell 1984. Everybody knows what's going on India -- afraid because of the situations just -- Well I believe that political correctness has just gotten way way way way out of control. -- Not get it right on Nokia's -- may be you know one or two sons go to -- you're younger self and the words. What advice would you give your younger self that you know now that you did not know when you were much younger. -- well mine why are obvious merit partners after a week. Usually.

Scenario. -- that Greg would be here thank you Charles. All right 260178668890. It's heavily got a a bunch of lines open solo we wanted to hear from you tonight. The owner of of that bakery. Who. Was. Ruled that he did discriminated against a gay couple when he refused to show -- mechanic has now fled but he's not just a wedding cakes all. Do you commend him for Standard and -- personal bullish. Or do you think he's just played office those despite his plays because I'm sure. -- -- a lot of profit they made instantly what he takes on Bob Mitchell and for screwed WWL. I'm Bob Mitchell in the first do it our poll numbers to figure -- 78668890870. Our big need somebody pretty -- -- painful question would like to see the NFL coaches to challenge though there's a got a text much correcting me on the number. Of challenges and a really appreciate this. This that says that. You'll only get cute challenges. The game. And if you win the challenge you get another. I'm not sure of that -- right but. -- I if if if that's at and I apple expand. Corrected but the question is would you like to see in the poll of coaches. The challenge penalties you can go to WWL dot com -- vote or just to be -- goal it's -- to Michael wouldn't mention the Mario Michael. Did very well you're right. What about you Mike would you like the CDO fellow coaches to challenge penalties. Yeah and I think it's terrible when you when you know you know. Legitimate game and healers are have been like that happen. Due to a bad call that respect as terrible and unacceptable. Well we've had we've had times where. -- they may challenge whether a player has crossed the goal line there have been times when when the official rule. That the guy did not crossed the goal line and an instant replay shows he did cross the goal and so. As long issued don't increase the number of challenges they get regain. I don't really have I don't really have a problem now I have to admit I thought I knew. How many challenges do you get the game is the only two and guitar game. And here units but -- about that. Much of sports and -- -- but you know there you've you've been on both sides of the -- have been when you're in the the benefit of good caller -- -- -- when your team you know it -- -- -- -- -- -- -- bad -- As good stick apparel way you know me and let -- Being eliminated the play my dad you know part. Michael like I see you apply a little bit about the the political correctness. Let me do this let me do this and I'm ready to go to news shall be put you on hold if you don't mind. And come back to you welcome back to Brett right after the -- when he is an okay with you. All right if you wanna join the show which to secure a late 78668890878. What do be a fun things were talking a -- and -- could write a one sentence note are tuned to your younger self. What would it say here's a guy that's. But that he thought that buys stock in Microsoft. We're talking about also the guy that was told that the will not -- wedding cakes to days that he's breaking the law and he said weather than do that I -- Celtics at all. As he discarding his nose off despite his play George expanded on his ground what do you think I'm coming back after the news WWL.
