Rich weighs in on Patrick Mahomes’ comments about his Chiefs contract that only makes him the 7th-highest paid QB in the NFL.
The MMQB’s Albert Breer tells Rich how long before the Chiefs will have to re-structure Mahomes’ team-friendly contract, how Aaron Rodgers is fitting in with the New York media and if the Jets should be worried about his calf injury, what unintended consequences could arise from the NFL’s new kick off fair catch rule that many coaches are decrying.

844-204 Rich being the number to dial. Congratulations to the Florida Panthers. Definitely one of the better launches out of the state of Florida we saw yesterday. Into the Stanley Cup final. Congratulations to the Panthers sweeping out the Carolina Hurricanes.
That too was buffering for me. It was quite something. Last night, congratulations to the Florida Panthers. They are in the Stanley Cup final by the way. Final? It's final. The Heat trying to make the NBA finals tonight. NBA finals, plural, Stanley Cup final, singular, and the Las Vegas Golden Knights trying to join the Florida Panthers for the Lord Stanley's Cup. Congratulations to what we saw the state of Florida. The state of Florida could make it two for two tonight. So we'll talk about that on this show.
Chris Brockman, who's rooting for a game six, back in Miami. Indeed. Good to see you over there sir. How are you? Good to see you my friend. DJ Mikey Dees and Deez Nuts, how are you? Very good my friend. Good to see you. T.J. Jefferson, good to see you sir.
Hey Rich, it's good to be seen. And you've had a fascinating pre-show hour preparing for a segment portion of our conversation we're planning on having with Henry Winkler later on. This is your idea and we love the idea.
We're going to execute this idea. He plays an acting coach Gene Kucinau and Barry. Yes. Which is coming to a stirring conclusion on Max. Max. Max. I don't know what the other one was called. I don't remember anymore. It's totally rebrand on Max.
Max. He plays an acting coach. You've pulled a scene of you playing the Fonz.
Chris Brockman and I are going to recite a scene from The Waterboy and he's going to play Gene Kucinau and tell us who the best actor is here and I appreciate you not only coming up with the idea but you Chris for putting it all on the line since you are sir as we all know in the state of Florida an actor. Yes. Well this is just something more to add to his reel.
Yeah. To the reel. To the reel. To the reel guys. Hey there you go.
Yeah you were. Buddy games. Buddy games. And so that's the. Oh yeah we forgot about that.
We've got a great three hours is what we're saying. I don't know how Mike you you escaped having to act. Yeah what's up with that.
Very easily. I act every moment I'm alive. That's right. The least genuine individual is Mike Hilton. I gotta be honest when I was coming up with this I didn't think Mike was here today so I was. We never know. That's why I didn't even.
This could have been his day to act like he's a Fox Sports individual. I have one more scene though Mike you know I'm just saying. That's okay you're good.
You want to add something? No definitely don't. Henry Winkler as we all know. I can play one of the guys in the stands from The Waterboy.
That's true. As we all know Henry Winkler is a delight and last time he came on this show we promised we would make him the new best friend of Patrick Mahomes and we did. So for him to come in once again it's gonna be great. It'll be dynamite. He's a delightful individual.
That's an hour number three so you basically have to stay tuned for the entire show as if you don't every day. So very excited and Mahomes is kind of in the news today as well based on what he had to say yesterday on his contract and this is what's so great about the NFL is press conferences with stars of the game pop up out of nowhere in what we at the NFL network call the non-playing season because as we all know there's no such thing as an off season in the NFL. There's always something going on and there are organized team activities now and some quarterbacks don't show up some do there's only one that is actually mandatory for people to show up at like yesterday Lamar Jackson had a press conference he was there voluntarily at an organized team activity which is what happens when you get pizade the manner in which he got finally pizade and as we all know he got pizade after Jalen Hurts got pizade and so on and so forth and it all began with the first shot of the off-season contractual if you will want to call it a war well it's a war until the guy signs it was kind of a war between the Ravens and Lamar until he signed. The first shot was the Giants going ahead and giving Daniel Jones a contract that is worth annually 40 million dollars a year and Chris is saying it's his favorite deal of the year right it is still is it's insane and I keep saying it's what the market bears when it's your turn. I can't wait for my contract me to go two-time Emmy nominee actor three three three three four times if you can't on film network yeah four times my bad at any rate it was Daniel's turn he got 40 million a year and Burrow and Herbert still are going to get theirs and as of now after everybody's gotten their new contracts Derek Carr got a new contract Rogers kept his it's now Woody Johnson on the hook for paying Aaron Rodgers Patrick Mahomes is now the seventh highest paid quarterback in the national football league wow and once Burrow and Mahomes and once Burrow and Herbert get theirs Mahomes will be the ninth highest paid quarterback in the national football league and this was brought to Mahomes's attention yesterday and here was his response. I've always said I worry about legacy and winning rings more than making money at this moment but I know we keep communication we see what's going on around the league but at the same time I'll never do anything that's going to hurt us from keeping the great players around me so it's kind of teetering around that line. No no it's kind of it's more of a you just want to do whatever did not hurt other quarterbacks whenever they their contracts come up but you want to kind of keep the the bar pushing um and so it's not about being the highest paid guy it's not about making a ton of money I'm I've made enough money where I'll be set for the rest of my life um but at the same time you got to find that line where you're making a good amount of money but you're still keeping a lot of great players around you so you can win these Super Bowls and you're able to compete in these games. Makes complete sense like the answer like it a lot it's kind of saying you know what I'm not going to hold my team up for for every last penny because I still understand the way this business works but at some point I'm going to look at where I stand in the grand scheme of things and have to have that corrected and you know the Chiefs know that too it was a very nuanced answer in this day and age but the bottom line is he's going to have to get his at some point and the fascinating part about all of this is the contract that he signed in 2020 that 10-year deal worth 450 million bucks over the life of it you know what year one of the contract wasn't 2020 it was last year the the the 10-year deal began last year so just one year in one year in talk about how it has not aged or it's aged quickly right he's now the seventh best paid quarterback in the NFL just one year in and he'll soon be the ninth best paid quarterback in the NFL just one year in and by the way you know what he did in his first year of his contract in 2022 is he set the record for offensive yards in a season with 5614 yards completed 20 67 of his passes that's not bad two out of every three passes he threw was caught by a Kansas City Chief all of them interestingly enough by Travis Kelce it's wild he led the NFL in passing yards 52 50 and touchdowns 41 and then he won the MVP award joining Brett Favre was the only quarterbacks to have two MVP awards at age 27 or younger and the amount of money he slated to make did he do something else rich in 2000 yeah he won the Super Bowl and he won the Super Bowl MVP um and in 2023 the amount of money he's going to make is the amount of money Daniel Jones is earning 40 million dollars yeah thank you for making my point I don't need any other defense like I just walked out of the courtroom did you drop the gavel it's uh it's it's nutty it it's nutty and that's the but the the Chiefs knew that the contract wouldn't age well Mahomes knew when he signed it and because the cap number this year is 49 million 293 381 which is the highest cap number he's going to have over the life the contract so the highest cap numbers now and then there's eight more years to go and with each passing year Mahomes will get pushed down and the cap will go up so the question is is how much will Mahomes be able to swallow until he puts his foot down or will he just say I got a piece of the Royals I'm pissing off all of Arizona by asking the Phoenix Coyotes to come to uh to Kansas City I'm I'm I'm good I've got more money than anything else and this is the time where I've got Kelsey it's amazing it is amazing how the parallels between Brady and Mahomes get more stark every year because this is the only person currently in the NFL and I believe it can it change absolutely I understand someone can go on some incredible run Gabe Davis is on an hour number three it could be Allen it could be Burrow who's going to get paid and is terrific but right now as we're sitting here there's only one guy who could be even in the area code of the galaxy to catch Tom Brady with seven Super Bowls by the end of his career and it's Patrick Mahomes and he could have been one closer or could have been two closer winning one and Brady having one fewer had he won that Super Bowl but he didn't I didn't I get it all I'm saying is this is the only guy who can have that shot number one number two we're already talking about taking less right how many times did Brady supposedly give a discount to the Patriots and then three at some point right at some point of his career was early on he didn't have Gronk it's kind of funny Mahomes got his Gronk right off the bat he got his 87 right off the bat made the most of it and at some point he's going to have to do this without Kelsey and then we'll see can he reinvent himself what's he going to do and then of course the question comes does he have wind up playing for the Chiefs his entire career can he be the outlier on that front that's so damn far down the road but this is the sort of stuff I think about when I hear him say this it sounds just like Brady he's got Brady's in his sights potentially potentially and he's also understanding the way Brady won them all is he didn't leave he he he left some he left some on the table and he left some for other people and then he eventually got his and if you look at Brady right now coming at the end of his career didn't look like he you know was looking for for money and all Brady does is stare at the rings on his fingers and the trophies in the case and we all know though at some point this deal's got to get redone because how much will Mahomes swallow to say I've done all this and I'm not at all in the same conversation as that guy who's making just as much money as me and of course Andy Reid managing it all I think everybody's got their head screwed on right in Kansas City I saw it firsthand at the draft but it's just a fascinating conversation to me and interesting how he says that you got to do a deal that is at least fine for the people who follow 844-204 rich number to dial we'll talk about it with Albert Breer when we come back fascinating conversation that's only going to get more and more vol have more volume to it as Burrow gets signed and Herbert gets signed and they're the ones who might watch Mahomes beat them again anyway 844-204 rich number to dial here on the rich eyes and show that's what's on my mind what's on yours let's have that talk Albert Breer is here from Sports Illustrated talk about this Aaron Rodgers honeymoon in New York New Jersey and then of course Lamar's offense and what it's going to look like with a new OC in town Albert Breer when we come back men do you get distracted during the

our favorites from sports illustrated none other than albert breer back here on the program how you doing albert i'm good rich i'm good i i don't know if this is going to be a plus it's albert plus that's plus yeah you know breer minus is you know what it is what's that breer minus is uh every november you know what last two years tradition yeah uh oh baby just just come and check and see if you're awake here on this uh this may 25th but it's kind of crazy you know um that the comments from uh mahomes i don't know if it's because it's may 25th or we just know that burrow and herbert are coming to make him the ninth best paid if you will annual quarterback in the nfl making 40 million a year is nothing to sneeze at but what he's what he is is is the best in the in the sport and i don't think there's any argument on that front right now what did you make of his comments and the reaction to it in our in our nfl media world albert you know i i think there's you know two sides to it it's you know um you know there's a like a rising ship lifts all boats right like there is like some level of responsibility players have to each other to do the best they can individually um to kind of help every other player and make conditions better for those around you you know but then there's the the flip side of that which is you know trying to do something for your teammates you know and recognizing that like you know it is to some degree a zero-sum game that all these teams are playing and when you pay your quarterback it necessarily becomes more difficult to put the best team around that quarterback i mean that's why we've talked for a decade now about what an advantage it is to have a quarterback on a rookie contract right because that allows for you to add maybe four or five players that are really good players on your team that maybe otherwise you wouldn't be able to have so that's sort of where it's at and you know i i i i think patrick mahomes did that deal and i can tell you this factually um with the idea in mind that he wanted to create cost certainty for the team going forward not so much that they would get a discount on them but just so they could plan and so when they're doing travis kelsey's contract or they're redoing chris jones's contract they know exactly what they're dealing with at the most expensive position and that allows them to fit in everybody around them so i you know i i it'll be interesting to see because i i do think you know there's that model out there of how tom brady consistently did i would at least call them reasonable deals with the patriots now there were some fringe benefits around that but um he did relatively reasonable deals with the patriots all along which gave the patriots an edge and how they put together their team um you know is mahomes willing to do that can they do that without it being awkward because you know with the patriots and brady it did get a little awkward at the end when it came to the contracts um i think these are all open questions now because i think mahomes has what and i don't have it in front of me i think it's nine years what he did right so i mean if you're if you're patrick do you go and do you want adjustment if you're the chief do you feel compelled to do that and if you're going to do that what's the right number um that you can cut that you can agree to with the hope that maybe you won't have to adjust it again for another three or four or five years right and and then the question is is is what what would be the tipping point right i mean right and and is it is it somebody who's other uh whose work uh mahomes does not respect who now makes as much if not more than him um for multiple seasons right rich right i mean like i i know it like you know what one thing that's interesting on the brady thing is like i think one that kind of got under his skin a little bit was when garoppolo started making more money than him you know and rightfully so right like i mean i so i think that that that is a factor go ahead question but i think no no it's not no but you and and brady is is the only uh one would say barometer we can we can use um to measure this uh pressure situation that might be building unless it's no pressure at all that mahomes can just turn that part of his brain off and just keep staring at the trophies that he drunkenly leaves in the hands of of hands on the parade route you know what i mean like having having the time of his life you know that that's that's the question here and the only reason why we keep asking it um in the media over and over again is because that might be one of the things that that could derail what is obviously one of the best built machines we've seen in in recent football memory what's going on in kansas city right now right and like you know i i think it's like how much i you know what like i think part of this is and the chiefs have been smart about this i will say that like i i can tell you like you know it's funny because when we when we kind of went through like this mba mba ization of the nfl a few years ago you know when brady you know when brady got out in new england and then you know when rogers started to make noise and russell started to make noise devante adams is another one like it yeah right when all that started to happen you know i i remember talking to the chiefs about it and i was like well you know if i'm clark hunt i'd be going out to patrick every i'd be going out to lunch with patrick bombs every month and just say hey you all right buddy you need anything you know what i mean like and and you know the response i got was like they're legitimately doing stuff like that you know like that they are that they're very cognizant of like you know of trying to keep him happy almost to the point where like they do things for him and there are some interesting things that they've done for him i there's one story like where they actually test off another player doing something and patrick didn't even ask for it you know what i mean but they did it for him and you know i think patrick had to go to the team and say look you don't need to do that for me you know but like there is that element of it where they don't want it to get to a point where he has to come to them asking for things right like they are smart enough and i think the emotional intelligence of andy reed brett beach and clark hunt comes in here where it's like we want to be smart enough that like we want to be able to troubleshoot anything that might be coming and i think that that's sort of where the idea of redoing this contract or at least um adjusting it for inflation um like that's i think coming more from the team side than the player side and that's why you hear patrick talking the way that he is um you know i and i think that's why this is a good partnership right now you know and um will it be forever i don't know but i do think that's you know one way in which the chiefs have been smart about approaching it i am mandated to ask what was the thing that the chiefs did that the homes didn't ask and and might have ruffled some feathers yeah i mean i just heard um i i had heard it had something to do with access when access was limited during covid um where like you know like a lot of the stuff that they could do for players families and stuff was limited during covid and you know so they they made some concessions for for patrick's family and friends that he really asked for that like they weren't making other for the day that they had to kind of cut back with other people you know and so it was sort of something along those lines and i and and look like i think you know a big part of it for the chiefs was we don't even want to go to him and ask like we just we we we want to make him comfortable you know and we're gonna do everything we can to make him comfortable and i think to some degree you know for from a home is like dude you don't need to do that you know what i mean like like keep my teammates happy too but i think that there's that part of it like where you know you want to do everything you can to to to keep your best player um happy and you know and in some cases that's going to mean keeping the other guys happy too you know in some cases that's going to be making sure that that travis kelsey is happy and taken care of making sure that chris jones is happy and taken care of you know um and then you know when you're going the other way the player like tyree kill being very communicative with your quarterback about that which i can tell you they were when they offloaded tyree kill um you know when the when the idea first came up the first call they made was to involve themselves albert breer sports illustrated here on the rich isin show let's talk about aaron rogers uh in new york city and new jersey where uh he was on on uh on tuesday talking about you know jersey shore and he's watching a lot of tv right i mean uh another another he told our colleague adam shine that he's uh he watched a documentary maybe that that jimmy kimmel 30 for 30 on the 86 mets just to give him an idea of what it would look like if he brought a championship to new york um fully aware that there's a long island history with the jets and the mats and things like that he seems pretty damn comfortable there and the jets are as you were talking about the chiefs trying to make mahomes feel comfortable jets have done that for rogers that's for sure um what do you think of of the first couple weeks and how this might be a barometer for the season in new york well first uh isn't that true though like like you're an anomaly aren't you as like a yankees jets guy right like aren't isn't it normally yankees giants and then that's well for certain people of a certain age um from the new york metropolitan area you rooted for teams where they played in what stadium so that's usually jets mets islanders you're out there on long island and then you know would be nick's yankees yankees and giants used to play in yankee stadium together that's really old school me my brother was the jet met uh guy um and um and i i realized early on if i followed my brother with the jets and mets i have no championships reggie jackson came along and i became a yankee fan that's the answer okay so we just that's a good tight explanation i like that yeah um yeah i kind of feel that was like a 23 and me moment that we just had right there with the dna okay um yeah so i i like i would say like what we're learning and what the people in the jets organization are learning and have learned over the last couple of weeks is the kind of fishbowl they're going to be in um and you know look i i think like aaron might be as equipped for it as anyone because you know people act as if like like green day is i mean it's not a big market but it's not like some nfl like wasteland you know like that team and you've been around them rich they're as well covered as anybody so as far as the volume of reporters in the locker room and the number of beat people it's not that different um i think the difference here is going to be the magnitude of the story right so i don't think it's so much new york versus green bay as it is the sort of fishbowl effect that this story is going to have and i think this week's a perfect example of it like you know you have one um aaron rogers tweaking his calf and that got covered like the moon landing right and then you have alan lazar getting banged up or whatever happened and then having to go on twitter to clarify because there was all kinds of buzz that came out of that right and you know normally these sorts of things happen in may and it's a footnote if you even realize what's happening with some of these teams you know what i mean like or okay like guy guy tweaked his ankle whatever like you know he he kind of on top a little bit he's back out there the end of practice he'll be fine no need to push it in may right um it's just different now like when you have a legendary quarterback switching teams and going to a new place like that and i think like what we've seen this week with the first set of like full ota's really what is the unofficial start of football practice with jets is that like everything that they do this year is going to be under a microscope and so i think in a way it's like good that they're getting it out of the way now and that like the players especially the younger players are kind of like learn the landscape um so when they get to the season they'll be ready for it but i mean i don't think there's any question like you know and we've seen the jets in these sorts of situations before the tivo situation was kind of a funny one the barb situation obviously was very well covered i think that's sort of what you're looking at like over the next three four weeks as far as the way the team's going to be covered in scrutinized and certainly when we get to training yeah obviously you know as a jet fan you're looking for the trapdoor and i'm like i'm not going to i'm undeterred i will not be deterred by any of this but of course a calf tweak in may just as a fresh reminder of just how old aaron rogers is that's it what what do you know about his regimen does he take a page from brady does he reach out to brady is there a tb-12 connection here with his training and his regimen there's actually an interesting story there so i go back um so this is probably i'd have to look it up i think it was i want to say four or five summers ago when i was with rogers and um you know like he basically told me that he bought tom's book and at that point i think he was 35 36 whatever his age was um and he bought tom's book and he's like i don't do all of it he's like but he's like i have like learned to like incorporate some of the things that tom has done to create longevity for himself like integrating like some things that he does into what i do and so that was something that aaron took a very like intentional look at and um his explanation it was it was actually like i think a lot of people at that point like is he gonna get like how how soon could this guy walk away and he actually told me he was like it was a he's like it's a goal of mine to play until i'm 40 now and he's and and and and his logic on it was i need something to shoot for he's like you can only be pissed off about being the 24th pick and having 23 teams pass on you for so long until that just doesn't motivate you the same way anymore so he's like my new thing is seeing how far i can take this and seeing how long i can remain at this level and uh yeah i mean i i can tell you definitively that he went out bought tom brady's book uh that tv12 manual and he incorporates some not all of the other things that tom has done over the years to create longevity for himself albert breer here on the rich eisen show let's talk about the new touchback rule on kickoffs similar to college football anybody that um is receiving a kickoff um from the 25 yard line and in can wave their hand like a punt catch the ball and the ball is placed on the 25 yard line that's the way it's now going to be in the nfl and the only way to describe the coaching community right now in the nfl is furiously pissed off really upset and this is a community that uh is absolutely asking about the schedule ah you're just playing when you plan you know you ask him about anything that goes down it's just like you know you just control the controllables that's it you know now we know the rules let's go for it they are livid about this what what is the after effect what's it going to look like in the nfl this fall yeah i mean well first of all they're they're mad because of the way the league office handled it rich i mean plain and simple like this thing my understanding is like they were i don't even think they were at 16 16 in the march meeting right and then on monday um when they did a show of hands i think the vote was somewhere around 18 13 1 with the one absent with the one team abstaining being the um the raiders being the raiders of course they abstained and then overnight roger sent his people out roger lobbied hard to flip teams and he was able to flip about eight teams and so they wind up passing it 26 to five to one and they did it like and they passed it in a in an owner's only meeting so essentially when they had the show of hands on monday roger looked at the room and said all right we'll pick this up in the privilege meeting when it's only the owners in there and i know like roger had said to some of the owners that you know like this is a who's going to create liability for our for us because the concussions have gone up on kickoffs if we don't do anything about it you're opening yourself up to losses all the different stuff i think the coaches are really pissed off because what changed between march now you know and did you were you just trying to force us out of the room but no one else didn't work to force just us out of the room now you force the team presidents out of the room and is that the way rules should be passed should they be passed on how people really feel about you know the the the effects of them or should they be passed because somebody lobbied for two months to get them passed you know and there are a ton of unintended consequences the coaches are worried about here i know the special team okay so so special teams players got involved in this right because special teams coaches were 32 or nothing and um and they actually like had a couple of veteran special teamers call around to special teams players across the league and last week they got those guys 34 guys at least one from all 32 teams on a call and they talked about all the unintended consequences and the the special teams coaches players all really against it they're afraid that this is going to make the play more more dangerous not less dangerous because the response this they believe is going to be directional kicks into the corners it's going to be squib kicks it's going to be low liners it's going to be all these different methods to kind of circumvent the rule and they feel like on those sorts of plays there's going to be more chaotic less structured more unsettled football and it's going to lead as they see it to a lot of ugly football and ugly football as they see it is where the injuries happen and um they told the owners this they told the they told the league office this i i know they feel like they're not being listened to here's the other thing rich think about this i had a coach bring this one up to me and i'm sorry i'm being long winded no go forward i know they're go for it i know you're used to this with me that's all good but but but but this one but this one's really interesting so think about this okay um and a coach brought this scenario up and it's fascinating all right so say um say i'm down eight right and i score a touchdown and now i'm going for two okay yep so i go for two and i and the defense tells the defensive end they're they're they're they're pass rusher just go knock the crap out of the quarterback i don't care if it's late just just just hit him right okay so he hits the quarterback late the quarterback gets hurt all right say that say then a flag comes out so you got a 15-year penalty okay so now instead of kicking off from the 35 you're kicking off from the 50 but they just fair catch it anyway so it goes to the 25 so what's the what's the downside to hitting the quarterback late on a two-point conversion hmm well um let me just play the sound deficit the fedex other than the fedex coming from oh no i was about to say the fine money um secondly um you know the the same could be done to your team's quarterback thirdly um uh so hold on a second wouldn't let's just say if the two-point conversion is unsuccessful you wouldn't take the the penalty yardage on the kickoff you'd say put me on the one and try it again right so you're you're actually putting your team in power look i get the two-pointer i i understand i understand coaches are coming up with the unintended consequences and and i i can totally understand what they're saying and why they're upset to me as a fan watching the game uh nothing's more exciting than a kickoff i mean you could say it is the most exciting play in the nfl is a kickoff and i'm gonna say this later on when i i kind of have a a take if you will uh on it um naim hinds returning the ball for touchdown not only once but twice on kickoffs with damar hamlin in the stadium is maybe one of the greatest moments in the history of the nfl regular season and one of the greatest moments in the history of the super bowl was devin hester returning the opening kick for touchdown when everybody was expecting it or expecting the cults to not kick to him and he did it and this is now being removed from the game and i understand this is player safety issue but to me it doesn't this destroy the kickoff i mean it does destroy the kickoff right it feels like it it feels like it and you know and i i i think like you know what's frustrating for the coaches and players is that they are working to give the owners solutions right and like they like for example they like the usfl one you do you know the usfl rule go for it okay so it's sort of counterintuitive they move the kickoff back to the 25 so like because the kickers are so good now they can probably still reach the end zone from there and what you're doing is you're basically like elongating the area that the players are playing in and because it's less compressed you're going to see more guys slowing down as they're pursuing the ball more guys having to work a little harder to set up their blocks and the idea is that like by doing that you create less high impact collisions and apparently the usfl hasn't had an injury on a kid didn't have an injury on a kickoff all year and um and so like there are other ideas that that that the coaches the special teams coaches would really be behind you know and the head coaches too look like i i wrote it on monday like there are four head coaches that are behind this is what's so frustrating for them right the four head coaches uh rich that got behind um the the special teams coach on this john harbaugh bill belicheck sean payton dan campbell so you have three super bowl winning head coaches and another head coach who played over a decade as a player in the league right i mean i like it's almost like you feel like if they're not going to listen to us now they don't they just don't care about what we say period that's the other part of it albert thanks for the time greatly appreciate it let's do this uh again real soon look for more of my calls and texts appreciate it absolutely absolutely thanks for it you got it follow

search bleav podcast wherever you listen back here on the rich isin show with our radio uh friends and our roku friends all comb england just showed a video of craig kilborn years ago that guy man i mean he's four years ago by the way that's insane is that right that was 2019 yeah we had him in we had him in he hadn't been on the show yet i hadn't seen him anywhere in years and i had been cultivating that caper saying come on man you got to come in and the perfect timing was he came in because espn was having some big celebration on its 40th anniversary anniversary you know he saw toriko got invited dan and keith got invited back all those guys got invited back and i'm like you know looking in the same mailbox where my sp uh invite has been missing since leaving and uh i'm like okay won't you come and we'll celebrate it together we don't need we don't need their invitation to do it and i'm telling you it it's um it was just a great time for me man i was 26 years old plucked from redding california krcr tv and i got it was like truly winning the lottery getting change your life it changed my life it did change my life you got to turn your microphone on tj uh-oh there he goes guys tj's button there look at that right there look at that jay's button is not functioning you're on yeah oh mikey you got to get on that at any rate that was uh that was that was me back in uh in 1996 way back in the day more importantly though rich craig recognizes my skills what does that mean i don't know if you noticed on instagram a couple weeks ago in the comment section uh-huh he said that you're an oh one of the things you'd like to see top five things that brock she would love to see in around one of the nfl draft so entertaining and not as obnoxious as most boston sports fans he's he was just sampling just one more shady he wants more more brock shady yeah okay more oh i don't know how's that really has that you had that in the chute for a while you just pulled out of your back pocket it's just wholly interesting you walked and loaded yeah i mean he was doing doing a sports center with him back in the day was wild i only did it with him for about two three months he left right yeah so i did a couple with him he i've told this story before i'll tell it again he he took me through um you know he took me through um the um uh kenny rogers rolling roaster one night for dinner we were doing a sports center together and he's just like you know let's go to dinner and he took me through the kenny rogers rolling roaster in southerton connecticut wow back in the day that's still and i remember i'm 26 years old and um i couldn't believe i was just there let alone going through a kenny rogers rolling roaster that killborn's driving i'm sitting shotgun and he orders the dinner and proceeds to tell me you know he's an opportunity to do something and he might leave espn should he should he do it and he described to me the daily show that is you know it's like a fake newscast but it's kind of like a an interview talk show it's on comedy central should i do it hey kid should i do it like 26 years i'm like what are you why are you asking me like you know i'm just thinking of i want some chicken strips yeah and i'm doing you know tonight c block highlight you know with marcus cambi you know winning for umass you know like that's i need i need to focus on that quite the day is your microphone back working now it's not oh mike let's deal with this during the commercial break oh yeah i don't know if i my opinion all right well we'll have to figure it out because tj just take two wires and put them we need we need is let's mike mike we're on live tv and radio right now let's deal with it in like two minutes turzo and iowa you're here on the rich eisen show what's up turzo he's on you there turzo no it's just me it's just the three of us all together wow oh hey sorry sorry about that guys he's back what's up man hey sorry about that i had you on mute for some reason hey rich um sorry you guys didn't win that uh at the emmy it's all good it's kind of a shame and i think i agree with al and dallas like sports center is just such a different beast i don't think that it's i think they should have their kind of their own category just because this is kind of my feeling on it is you guys are so interactive with your audience and it's such a more kind of enjoyable thing whereas sports center we're there for the highlights and people just put it on in the background whereas you guys like your audience interacts and just say it's like if you guys are on a carls people are listening wanting to hear what you guys have to say and not just checking the scores look all i know is this i've i've been on sports centers we were just established for seven years 96 to 03 i know there are many people still there they work just as hard as we do on their jobs and and the folks who put it together you know want to be the best just as much as we do and we're we're we're daily studio shows and that's the category and i i don't want to denigrate at all the win for sports center there are so many people who i still know there and i respect immensely and what else you got on your mind perzo yeah not yet i wasn't trying to take no and i got it all good it's all good hey brockman how confident are you about uh tonight's game ah good question chris we're winning the series oh oh hey does that answer your question my this this is kind of my take on it brockman oh there he goes again you muted did i oh no i'm not muted okay what happened what is it yeah so i think boston actually plays better on the road and i think we all know that i don't think that they want to actually be in that stadium i don't see him winning tonight there brockman i think i think that he'd take it well gave vincent out tonight for five to one that's a huge loss for miami that is true he's been awesome he has been remarkable in this series so i just think the energy we're gonna get game six it's just what boston team kind of shows up in miami uh on it's just amazing though because you know thanks for the call uh i'm gonna go here boston's not too far from new york city right it's close yeah yeah game four i don't know what the weather was in miami but they played pretty well down there let's just have to maybe turn uh turn the humidity up in boston and i feel like they're in miami and they win what do you think i guess so some of the nicks nicks couldn't win down there something i know i saw a report that the heat plane got delayed by three hours or something getting them so they got into boston oh the gremlins the gremlins the old garden gremlins that's right here we go we need the ghost of red you love lala kent on vanderpump rules now get to know her on give them lala with her assistant jess what you did not see is when racquel arrives and she wants to talk to me i made her sit in a corner explain sat in a
