It's a really Smart way to put together contract because well after your playing days are over is taken care of. Have to admit that's still playing pain -- -- country at this point in the fifteen year conference if they are that's the worst contract. Cam Newton told the Atlanta journal constitution that quotes I've always been a falcons fan and I'm still -- falcons fan except those few times a year. -- a lot. No problem.

Self promoting -- Your question for you guys can anybody in talk radio. Present company included -- anybody can talk radio accuse anybody else big to promote. And they -- rule against that. Also promoting low art well are we supposed to do. So for for Mike for that that Ortiz promoter. Maker joke out of it and we know. That if one of them all. Also is David Ortiz even really much of a self promoter. But you see more of a self promoter than other people are not at all because in this age of social media everybody's so right that's what social media. It's self promotion how how was he is are -- what is David -- done that promotes himself specifically. He did a sports center commercial rule but what -- Not on it it promoted the sports and a brand now it does help the David Ortiz break as he looks good looks funny doing it by. I don't even see how he qualifies as being a big time self promoter. About a guy who fell asleep on here and use the excuse -- excuse. Its pilots there actually a divide that I got kids now I'm not gonna look at tortured for that excuse anymore. Ticker ways and so no one -- -- no one can have a who's at Dawkins.

Given that tomorrow night thanks and the best one is going to be when they signed it out of high school. It's mostly though he just wasn't prepared -- is it to themselves what's it like for. And you know and on its. Two -- -- -- this. Jack -- commercial. Jack was the cute little to really think it was too mature and whichever receiver -- you guys you guys come up with -- go when that relief. Use the open Mike GAAP.

That is today's forward four. -- hit at the open Mike it's the bottom right hand corner of the WEEI -- apple has brought you by AT&T. Official wireless provider of the Boston Bruins. Just looking at home there's a ton of these on -- differences program that was a week. That was definitely united way -- are -- I was gonna -- like the Corey Dylan patriots went for visa human talent. -- dealers and not knock house not a day. That our -- of its okay good. It ran constantly during either the 030 the 04 patriots run he just kept saying not our house not today he knows the home. Basis of the commercial don't really good. The victory. -- new brilliantly -- have three amigos one Diana. I was pretty good by the -- can I take issue this for the people were saying that. Tom Brady wearing yankees -- is the same thing as -- as as Cam Newton saying he -- for the they are different things to different sport it is. The Yankees are not Tom Brady's arrival he does not play for the Red Sox he lives here in Boston right now some of the time when he's not living in California he plays for the patriots. If you can find any time on the patriots schedule when they are supposed to face the Yankees. I will buy I will jump on board and -- Brady should never Wear that again. Play adamant that they are not go out equipment is not -- -- the patriots are not predicting I am positive. The day will not play the Yankees this year next year or any year.

I will be upset the Tom -- wearing yankees -- equivalent Rick that Tom -- equivalent would be LeBron are wearing no -- objects were born to run well candidate Tom Brady were to -- our our Cam -- being a fan of the falcons like properties thing and the fans. Of the makes no sense if you can't be a fan of your division rival. And I don't know what you do what here's the next question what do you do -- that information. If you're the head coach.

I camps and are you like the falcons but this is how -- gonna take advantage of them I would okay. I know maybe you don't wanna throw that pass against her favorite team but they're vulnerable. What you gonna come up with these crossing -- they can't stop them. You know the quarterback's gotta Wear red -- enough practice to make sure that they don't get -- do you make Cam Newton where falcons Jersey during that every one of his many campus how we retreat the falcons they -- exactly right -- What do you do and doesn't do you think it bothers them like I -- bothers me but I you overreact I'm a fan I'm whenever I'm in these are the types of things that would bother me is. As as as a radio host and -- Do you think that the people in Carolina management -- bother because -- -- that they're not bothered by the fact that he grew up and liking the falcons are still likes -- and would root for them. They talk about the fact that this information comes out why would you ever say the sellout. Just speaks to bad decision making and speaking of that decision.
