Upshot is that greater idea I didn't think it would -- look great hockey. And but there are those who do. Did you did you happen here Jack Edwards comments. No I didn't -- there are six or seven probably just play one short before you cause its comic number three talking about you Peter Jack Edwards. Just absolutely. Not -- spectrum he has. No validity he has no credibility. He you know if if the guy were at the -- all the time they'd reconsider his opinion. So -- goes on to say that you don't have any credibility because you don't stand. In front of John -- relish and say that was something ought to slap shot you look -- asinine coach I don't know that you had to be in the arena or at the ballpark or at the stadium to have a comment about a particular sporting event. No I think my -- sort of the art posters. Aren't as many times experience asking a question like. On what issues political or something in being sworn that -- mean and that's. I. I don't believe -- wise -- the -- is so. Altercation as a pure. Cure but at that they -- -- It is it is capsule is not ludicrous and every fan has an opinion they don't all go to every game they they don't put any practices.

It's funny -- upbeat because that these for soccer mentality the media covers soccer. Treats it like it's there's and you cannot and you must let it speak -- of it and I always make the comparison says I'm an -- baseball guys. Who if someone says that -- baseball boring and get offended football guys battle likens -- to violent whatever. People cover football don't care if you don't like it but soccer guys and against the summit in hockey guys. Demand that you woman respect love and respect -- sport. And this is a great example. There are are are really the harder it is. Always like to. I can see each one of those -- always fighting uphill. -- he had -- -- -- football. Usually baseball college basketball. Golf auto racing the other group that the big majors -- in this country. And I understand. I can understand why so what altered by the friendship Bradley whose brother was. US team lost a coalition support this amnesty it will soccer and they match. Which is offline but he's not that -- that he loves it ought to talk about. What Jerry's point as an actor -- and in this particular case dead on accurate it almost sounds like Jack is taking personal take a listen to this. That's out of luck suckers shall walk at all not that sort of broad side out there from -- this -- -- -- that's why are all your miners for all. They're here can have whatever opinion you -- -- can be as long as you want hockey is not a miners. Hockey is is in fact the greatest sport world. We're going after Jack said that appeared to be sharpen your front door the next -- not undergo a face a face like he wanted you to do with Arturo of these guys that happened. Now now okay to make sure. It would -- a reduction in the Monday I'm opening children were probably as I -- article move toward though. Let -- awakened and -- -- all comes from Concord. It's all like hockey players play in all the -- should be every bit. And I mean it's. If they -- need is greatest -- I certainly enjoy a lot it's there are the knee. Watching. Watching them probably wore riskier -- was great is one thing in watching that. -- Cold War mentality. Is another. One who actually sort of -- like -- -- -- very funny system that's here like WW. Maybe it -- let's go baseball question how much of the Yankees closed the gap in this off season. I -- they're very good job -- on merit and they're gonna have to still as some people probably -- -- another -- to -- the same time I mean. -- It's really hard to know exactly how go to rockets were beaten me a lot lot of guys out there. And execution -- he has weight loss can get -- through 220 innings. Then particularly pretty good and I think the lineup is -- of the outfield people with -- Ellsbury. And Gartner. It in the big in the big yard. Excuse that we go -- I -- that -- I really believe Adam and knowing that Mark Teixeira. It's just about completely healthy again I think that that helps a lot against a lot and for the world bank and. I was -- thing about Lester is comments last thing you never hear players say -- ever right before free agency how much money you think he's going to. Take from the tape please give it is -- -- a hundred million dollar contract for the 175. Years a free agent. I think -- I think -- -- but that danger -- is trying to predict that kind of contract. Win. The conflicts in the boats that supply -- countries that -- one to 35 in which is a lot different from crucial or some aka. This ball. Short paper is that sort going to be -- Chilavert forties. But the same time westerners. It tenacity in this leadership. Because that. Techno and getting. I think it's you know I -- venture is that like it. Let things settle we'll get emotional sit outward. -- agents await -- last year would -- -- Against -- what so it. A lot of hysteria about right now I -- -- was -- like John -- not play. Well hold negotiate he didn't have a script. You read from people ask -- about the agency. Which spoke from the heart not from what he was told cherry and I appreciate.
