Jeff:

Ladies and gentlemen boys and girls children of all ages I'm your host Jeff D with my man and co host Anthony a welcome to another episode of The Culture

Anthony:

like do you plan on being like a boxing? Like did I miss a meeting or a memo like this is what we're doing now like

Jeff:

you like my like my Road Dog impersonation got out to the Road Dog Jesse James Armstrong who just got fired, but don't worry. He did. Yeah, he just got fired. He used to be like a coach on NXT yo, whatever the fuck he was. There was like peace outside another wave of cuts. We got to pay this man Brock Lesnar.

Anthony:

Do they have a pension program?

Jeff:

They don't got no goddamn cuz, because he'd been

Anthony:

around here for a while. He'd been around for over 20 years, he was pop up from time to time, show up at a pay per view. And that's it. What is always something like the rumble, like when we're gonna Oh, hit the road or pop up every four years some shit like that.

Jeff:

Anyways, man, shout out to our Patreon. We appreciate your support in the show. If anybody wants to support the show or become a patreon, just go click the links in the show notes. If you can leave reviews and ratings and whatever apps to listen to that would be much appreciated. But I don't want to get I don't want to waste no time and let's get right into it. There's a guy we got a lot of shit to talk about. This is gonna be a sports heavy episode. I'll let you know that but I'm like it's really because not because we have there's a lot of sports topics this week. You know what I mean? And there's a lot of sure we got to discuss first and foremost to rest a piece of Sidney Poitier. Amen.

Anthony:

That's such a, such a weird plugin. Like, it's a lot of sports to talk about. But recipes like, let's

Jeff:

remember, like, like, last week, we had Betty White die and I forgotten I had to plug that in because she was an important figure, and cinema. And this week, I feel like this gentleman is even more important, at least to the culture.

Anthony:

He waited Betty White was way more important. He's way more important in a way.

Jeff:

The first no disrespect to be white, but he was the first black man to win an Oscar.

Anthony:

Did Betty White ever win the Oscar?

Jeff:

I feel like she probably did show me was active for 80 years if you didn't get an Oscar and 80 I don't mean you watch it. Yeah, I don't know. He did it. He was a black first black person

Anthony:

disrespectful to very white people. The only reason you remember Barry White and could you grew up on the Golden Girls if you didn't remember that you probably black.

Jeff:

And remember, I told you people die and later he was 94 So I'm holding out hope that I'm gonna last a long time and you want to lesson today 90 Won't do

Anthony:

they will do different back then. I'm not saying I'm not saying encouragement. Thanks for the words of impermanence ego die soon, but back then like Yeah, I mean, the old days they hadn't it was different. Can you be like, Man before we're talking about like your grandma, like how old she was like, back then he just different man. They just, they took life head on. And it was good to go.

Jeff:

Man, but let's get into it. Man. We got to start off. Let's start off immediately with this Antonio Brown situation. You want me to tell the story or you wanna explain the story first, before we get into each other's opinions.

Anthony:

You're gonna wipe your ass with we're sitting 48 jumpin Antonio Brown. That is such a juxtaposition. Because these like that's not what one's a very wipe in my head when I say like that, because one's a very proud, honorable black man who was one of the first people to put interracial relationships and win awards on television. Then we got this Nick over here.

Jeff:

Who's not making the culture look very

Anthony:

good right now making himself look good. I don't know. But but but let me break it down real quick. Just

Jeff:

for the listeners that probably haven't really followed the story. As much as we have. How could you be right? I mean, it's a it's a it's the talk of the town. Yeah, that's why I'm starting to show off with it. Okay, so the Patriots played a Jets last week. Jets were down by

Anthony:

double digits. But two possessions? No, remember the Jets were up? Yeah.

Jeff:

I mean, the I'm sorry. The Patriots were down by two possessions. No, the

Anthony:

bucks were down. You're breathing the brain that Brady's not breathing

Jeff:

over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers playing the New York New Jersey jets. There you go. And the Jets are up by two possessions. It took a remarkable comeback for Brady like he does anyway. Antonio Brown played in that game Correct? Yeah. He played for like a half of the game. Yeah, yeah. He sits down on the bench Cool. Next thing you know the coach is telling them to get in at this point. We don't really know the specifics yet until later. So the coaches apparently tell him to come in. He says no. We don't know what's going on. Next thing you know, we see him jumping up and down takes his job. Y'all start screaming at the fans and walk the hell off, takes the shit off, throws it in the stands. walks out. Right, right. We're like damn like he did he just quit on national television. Yes. You said immediately following they say that the Bucs have had fired him. They released them immediately. Right? Which they did all the reports. Right, right. Okay, you're like, oh shit, he reports coming out like, oh, Antonio Brown quit the team. No, they released him what's going on? Okay, so we weigh in all types of speculations. All types of rumors, all types of incentive laden rumors, which I don't buy. This is a case of how not to get yourself fired, how not to lose your job. He breaks it down like that. They interview the coach. He said, Look, man, I told this man to come on the game. He said he didn't feel like playing. So I'll tell them to get the fuck out of here. So that's exactly what he did. Antonio Brown comes out and he released the statements. And he says his version of the story, and if you don't mind, I'll read a little bit of it. He said a whole lot of shit. To me find this. Okay. So when he released his lengthy statement, he basically said he was forced to play on an injured ankle, that will require surgery. Okay, and then he goes on to say, I took a seat on the sideline, and my coach came up to me very upset and shouted, what's wrong with you? What's wrong with you? I told him, it's my ankle. But he knew that already. It was well documented, and we had discussed it. He then ordered me to get on the field. I said, Coach, I can't, he didn't call for medical attention. Instead, he shouted at me, you're done. While he ran his fingers across his throat. Coaches telling me that I didn't play hurt. Then I was done with the bucks. I know we were losing to the Jets. And that was frustrating for all of us. But I could not make football plays on that ankle. And he said, Yes, I walked off the field. But there's a major difference between launching from the line and taking hits compared to jogging off the field with a rush of emotions going through your mind and reflecting on my reaction. But there was a trigger the trigger was someone telling me that I'm not allowed to feel pain. He goes on and on and on. And I'll put the link on the show notes so people can read it because I'm not going to read all of it. When they asked the coach, he was like, Nah, man, I told him that he told me straight out that he didn't want to play the coach area and said, you know that even at halftime, Antonio Brown had complained to him into the team that he wasn't getting enough touches. And that's when I think that's probably when the rumors of the of the incentives came. You know, he was a few catches away from getting you know, something like what was it like $300,000 incentive.

Anthony:

It was like three, it was like it was he was a third of a million away from one. If you didn't hit all three who were added another million dollars, who's

Jeff:

if you got eight more catches, he would have gotten 300,000 If he would have gotten a certain amount of yardage, he would have got another 300,000 bonus. The thing is all these bonuses, right? So right away, people are saying oh there wasn't letting him play. They took him out the game because they didn't want to pay him this bonus. That's bullshit. They had another game The following week, first of all, and if you know Tom Brady, he wants to win. First and foremost, he doesn't care who's catching the ball. He doesn't care about bonuses. So if they reported that Antonio Brown was complaining that he wasn't getting enough touches that Brady was throwing too much to his boy Gronkowski. Get your ass open and first of all, Gronkowski was open most of the game. Okay, so I don't buy that rumor. Then they were saying that, Oh, they didn't want to let him play because they didn't want to pay him his bonus. I don't buy that either. The coach said now that's all nonsense. He complained that, you know, he didn't like to play call and he wasn't getting the ball. So he refused to come in the game. I told him a couple of times come in the game. We need you in the game. He said No, I'm not playing. I don't like the place. Fuck this. So he's like, I tend to get the fuck out. Mm hmm. That's what the coach said. Okay. Now, the problem is that Antonio Brown doesn't have a good track record. So he doesn't get the benefit of the doubt from me in the court of public opinion. And Tonio Brown is guilty as charged. Due to his track record, OJ Simpson was asked about this and OJ Simpson said and I quote, It's inexcusable and total BS from a man I went when OJ Simpson

Anthony:

is like, you know, saying that

Jeff:

your actions when OJ is saying your actions are BS and inexcusable, there's something wrong. Now before I let I let you get in on this, would you mind if I read off some of Antonio Browns transgressions?

Anthony:

Sure. It's a very interesting rap sheet.

Jeff:

Let's let's recap shall we? 2018. fired by the Pittsburgh Steelers, a team that drafted him he played with them for like a good 10 years, right. They fired him for beefing with people including Big Ben. They're all pro quarterback, the superstar quarterback. He's beat for him like Get the fuck out of here. They fired him. Then he faced the sexual assault charges correct and then he faces Domestic violence issues. Then the Raiders tried to take a chance on him. They fired him before he even put on his uniform. Didn't even play a game. They fired him. They're like, yeah, we're not dealing with this headache. Get the fuck out. Then he spends a long time not playing. Couple years. Then the buck decided to take a chance on him. Tom Brady was like, Yeah, I could win with him. Let's pick him up so that so the bugs give him a chance he wins the Super Bowl with them last year. Then he starts this year off with the whole fake vaccine cause stunt that he pulled, which by the way, is a federal offense. He's lucky he's not facing charges for that. Am I correct? Yes. Okay. Then he pulls this done, then he gets fired. Everywhere you go, you're a headache. You're a cancer. You are the problem. If it was anybody else, I would give you the benefit of the doubt. The Patriots picked them up before the Bucs picked them up and he played one game with the with the Patriots and they go Belichick is not playing that he did good to him. And then he played one game scored a touchdown in game two if I remember, then, I don't know what happened with him. Bill Belichick was like, You know what, I'm not dealing with this cancer. Give them the fuck out of here. We don't need them. Then he pulls out his shirt with the bucks. And now he's throwing Tom Brady under the bus. Let me read a statement. He says Brady can do shit by himself. Why you guys are going to make him seem like he's just this heroic guy. Then he also said Brady doesn't have my back. And then finally he goes on some random podcast. And this is what he had to say. This is where he absolutely lost me and he sound like he's on drugs too. And I'll play it real quick.

Unknown:

Tom Brady's my boy Why am I playing for earnest salary? Right? You my boy Oh right. But Gronkowski is boy right? Right how much you get paid a significant amount All right, so So while AB on a proven deal? Who's buried me over there? Let's be real right but no nuts. No, let's not be right. Let's be honest. That guy over there. As you guys know football, for sure. This guy over and that team? Ball receiver? Who is the guy that get it? poppin it's I mean, I think it's a combination all you guys

Jeff:

so I'm gonna need him to shut up right now. He sound like he was on drugs. Um, he's tripping. And if and if. And then he's talking him and he said he said he's been walking around on a fractured ankle. The very he stayed when he stormed off the field. He stayed in New York because the very next day he was killing it. That's game courtside. He was sitting front row courtside at the Brooklyn Nets game and he looked fine to me. He wasn't hobbling. He will. If you have a broken ankle you can at least hobble no in my line. I've had sprained ankles and couldn't

Anthony:

walk on the Amiga front a little bit dragon league bond Yuka front

Jeff:

but I've sprained my ankle before playing basketball and I couldn't even walk on the shit. He's talking about. He has fractured different fractures on his ankle, and he's walking around. He's at the next game. He's running off the field storming off like come on, man. I'm done with this guy. There's reports that the Cowboys are willing to take another chance to him something I hope nobody gives this man another chance he clearly needs help. He clearly needs to figure out his his mental health and and everything and is off the court antics. I'm anxious

Anthony:

to hear you you think it'd be crazy I don't know if he's crazy, bro. But some songs not right up there. Maybe not crazy. Maybe not crazy. Maybe okay, but he's disturbed. He would disturb he just has the ability to play victim is what generally happens when someone doesn't take accountability for the shit that he doing. Like said he The reason he got let go to patriots is because he played a good that one games and sexuality allegations came up so they had to get rid of them then they got rid of the Raiders because he just what happened? He he was still son. I think he was still going through some off the court stuff. It was it was something that sexual assault that he was going through the sexual assault charge rate is not and that's like violent, right? It's really just him being an asshole because it was like, it was something about the helmet like he didn't like this type of helmet. And then it's always something I remember he went to like crap therapy Ward, like the wrong. Boots are some shifting around like socks, and then they hit like, frostbite in the feet. Something crazy. Then I remember because they were showing on hard knocks, like when he got released. He was just running around the house or hacking and stuff like that. Yeah. I don't, I can't see I dislike the guy cuz I really don't care about him. But for him to be like, Okay, so we're going to go back in time we're going to erase a few narratives. We're going to erase the narrative about the money because if you would have gotten vaccinated He wouldn't got suspended those two games for not being vaccinated, he would have had more time to play would have made his money then and part of that contract and to achieve those incentives, like you know, you have to be on the field that actually to go back in, and you don't go back in. You can't say it's about money. Because if it really was, you probably you probably asked him like to superglued your ankle again, like I just need a few more catches a few more yards and a touchdown, I can get the check. I'm good to go. So it ain't that either. He is one of those guys who who I mean, there was a particular period of time that he was easily the best way of receiving the NFL, but he's not that guy anymore. What do you like 34 or something like that? I think so. You're not the number one, you're not the number one option on that team, you're not the number two option, that'll be Chris Godwin. And then number three options. That'll be Gronk. You're number four option. So to think that, you know, Tom Brady is supposed to be a man and get you paid? Why am I going to try to get the the the fourth best option on manufac? Probably the fifth behind Leonard Fournette. I'm going to try to get the fifth option as funny as possible. Come on, man, let's

Jeff:

be realistic and even then, but even then he's only the third or fourth option because of his transgressions. Because this guy has all the talent in the world. He had the potential to be one of the best wide receivers in the history of the game. Yes. If you're a fantasy, if you're a fantasy owner, you had him, you know that he was good every week for 100 plus yards. And any given week, you would get a touchdown from him. Even as a third or fourth option, he was doing that with the Bucs.

Anthony:

Yeah. But you know, I'm

Jeff:

saying and any other team he'd be the first A second option. Yeah, if it wasn't for the fact that he's a cancer and headache. And teams, you know, when teams sign them, they're taking a chance on him.

Anthony:

And Dallas is just making sense because they lost Michael Gallup so they sign Antonio Brown, or whatever, but they signed him just means it did not win the Super Bowl. I just, I feel I feel it feels stupid to say things like throwing Tom under the bus like Tom Shacho as Bill TWICE, Like, like, alright, so I think Gronk contract about one year $10 million dollars. When he was with the Patriots, it was a one year I think 10 and a half million dollars, like, you got your check, then you did some dumb shit, we had to get you the focal point out of here. Like you like, the whole thing is that if you really really, really, really, really wanted the money, he know that, you know, Tampa strapped you could go anywhere and get that money. So for him to talk about the check. He could have got it from somebody else and never got it. Like mean to tell me that you know, Green Bay couldn't use him opposite Davante Adams. I'm pretty sure they could. And I'm pretty sure they could have paid him. But he didn't want that he wouldn't say here. He's trying to say this is my man. Your man's job is not to take care of you. Your job is to take care of yourself. Because the Tom said he didn't want you back. He wasn't coming back. But the reason that you're there is because Tom said so. So for him to be saying like it's no the bringer of that money thing. He's just stopped doing us a terrible job like what? Like you're saying this is not your man which man builds your ass out twice. Now all of a sudden he's not spending time under the bus. You know, he got Gronk dissing crunk that like no Gronk still want to top five titans in the NFL hard to believe but it's true. So therefore Gronk is doing he needs to do so don't try to put that shit on anybody else put yourself

Jeff:

and even and even and even when Gronk isn't catching balls. He's still block. Yeah, he's big as hell.

Anthony:

And Gronk is going out there. He's played too. So I'm not trying to make that comparison. But the whole thing is that you're talking about this ankle. And then also you spin it off to other things like areas doesn't care about me or Tom doesn't care about me. I don't think he needs to seek like like mental health treatment for the injuries in damages brainy, done in the field. It's really more about like, self esteem and self love and self worth because you're putting blame and onus on everybody else except yourself. Because even if it was mad, and you said that, you know him and Bruce Arians had a good No report. Then you talk to coach but look, if I could go out there I would but my ankle, I cannot do it. And just be honest with him. Because of course gonna be mad because because you use like kind of brushing them off. Just look at men and I tell them like, I'm trying to my ankle. It just doesn't feel right. I cannot plan I can't do anything. I'm not going to help the team. I just can't do it. They would have respected that. But you didn't do this and then three shitting the crowd like said and you pissing on your own teammates, like Mike Kevin the OJ Howard like yo stop trying to stop him from getting undressed on the sideline, throat and tosses pad tosses gloves. He tosses a shirt. For a guy with her ankle. He seemed to be really enthusiastic, jumping up fucking down. He somehow gets an Uber out of the goddamn stadium and goes wherever he needs to go into the next game the next day. You don't show no attrition. You don't care. It's all right. And if you don't care, I can accept that. That's just who you are. That's why you're no longer part of the Buccaneers organization. But you try to go around to some random ass podcast to talk about other things. And that's another thing I hate to. They never go on. Like whenever some should happen. They never go into pockets when someone's going to push them You always go into your manzanilla you write you write a B, you write you don't don't deserve you, nigga, please stop. nobody care about your mission it is talking about this and all he's trying to do to get his point across and get a platform to say whatever we're going to say. That's the bad part. Like when you put out a statement about everything that's going on. It wasn't his agent that did it. It was his lawyer that did it. Like what the fuck is going on here? Aren't you a football player are just supposed to have someone to represent you. Mess man,

Jeff:

good riddance. That being said, Do you believe Antonio Browns recollection of events or the coach? Bruce Arians story version of this situation

Anthony:

I believe both of them and I believe that both of them have a very interesting way of looking at it. I think Bruce is telling him to go back in there and Tonio sell it No, it was telling him to go back in there a be saying no, Bruce Lee All right. Get the fuck out of here and I think and Tony just took that literally.

Jeff:

Yeah, like but but but am I off base when I say that? Because of his track record. He doesn't get the benefit of the doubt.

Anthony:

Yeah. Your character and your words in your act and speak more than anything else in the world that's why should always defend them at all costs. That's why if I would hope if someone says something crazy about me in private you back me. If someone says some crazy about you in my presence, I would back you because the whole thing is that your your word and your character speak volumes behind beyond any kind of dollar amount. You'll be the richest person in the world, but no is going to trust you because everyone thinks you're a fucking snake. You'd be the brokest person in world but everybody trust you because you're genuine in your direct to your word. And you're honest. The thing with a B is that he ain't got no credibility. He is like, it's all zero. Its little thing that you think of like, the reason the COVID thing came up is because he fucked some shifts out of about $10,000 He's supposed to pay him. Right? That's it. If he literally pays the chef what he was supposed to pay him. The patent, the chef doesn't go snitching saying that he got a fake vaccination card. Right.

Jeff:

And I was tired of seeing people on social media saying like, Oh, the only reason is because they they benched him on purpose. Because they don't want to pay him the incentives. I'm like, yo, really? Do you realize how owner how rich these owners are? What's what's, you know, 300,000 Or what's an extra million of incentives, as long as it's helping the team these owners don't care. And they had another game the final week anyway, so he was gonna get a chance

Anthony:

and they wouldn't hold him back. He said he didn't want to play.

Jeff:

Right? So I wasn't buying that excuse.

Anthony:

But but that's the whole thing you're hearing from him. You're not hearing answers even when he's doing the interviews you might hear an answer you're hearing excuses. And that's

Jeff:

the coach that and the coach said at that halftime he was complaining about the color of the button, you know, the play call and he was complaining that you know, he wasn't getting the ball enough or that they were throwing a Gronk too much or he didn't like the plays that the coaches was running and the coach said that the players had to calm him down. He said the players managed to calm him down and afterwards you know, he told him to get back in the game and the second half and he was like nah so I'm hearing like two different stories from the coach side of it it sounds like you know he figured he didn't want to go into game because he was just upset at the at the play call and like I'm if I'm not going to get the ball I'm not going to win it right a be saying no, I was just injured I didn't want to go out there because my ankle hurt but yeah, you run off the field you at the next game you will do another podcast at the podcast foot is up on the table when cooling and crutches here you have a cast he have none if you walk around with broken bones in your legs shit.

Anthony:

You the toughest dude ever if you break in shit and you're talking about a broken Why are you not having surgery? Like isn't your season over? Like go get it cleaned up get ready for next season? If so, you're gonna be there. I don't get

Jeff:

oh and in the spirit of it in the spirit of throwing teammates and team under the bus. Another part of his statement was he said what that the coaching staff gave him some illegal as drugs. They gave him some some dangerous substances to numb the pain.

Anthony:

I gave it they gave me this toradol toradol they use an all NFL locker rooms. It's like the super strong painkiller like if you get shot at it already but feel shit. You

Jeff:

feel after me some dangerous he said it gave him some dangerous shit to numb the pain and like

Anthony:

go out there but don't act like they put cocaine and fentanyl in a needle like just take this AB you'll be fine. Come on, man. They all take anti inflammatory they all take painkillers. I think football players play you get a car wreck every 30 seconds. You got to take something you know by that damn tough. We think when it popped a little blue tin up there like did it shitting it talking about yo, it just needed a real quick walk around like can you feel anything? No. Good. That means you're good to play. Come on, go back out

Jeff:

there. That's it. You'll feel it later on tonight. But for the next hour you should be good. Y'all

Anthony:

cattle and your sheep. I'm trying to learn from our AB in regards to that. Because you know better man you like your professional and you try and say that they acted unprofessionally. You acted unprofessionally people act unprofessional at my job all the time. kind of get used to it. But other people have seen some wild things but we kind of get to a point where like you're doing nothing on a Sunday. Somebody's like, Yo, you guys see this Antonio Brown shooting like, what do you score a touchdown? No. He's tripping. That's the crazy part like you expected like, like crazy things that happen in life they just do. As a matter of fact, we're just celebrating the one year anniversary of white people trying to overthrow the government. Yeah, let me do the things that we see. But I never seen oh gosh, rip off and move a football game, though his shit away, and then just like hop off the locker. But the craziest thing I've ever seen in comparison is actually from a movie from the last Boy Scout. In the beginning or running back Lily like isn't isn't a rain. He breaks two tackles. He's about to get tackled. He pulls a gun out of his jock jockstrap. So shooting people. Now, I'm not saying I'm glad he didn't do that. But that's like the wildest thing I've ever seen and that was fictional. This top SEC of I never lets this stupid like, oh, like if you didn't want to spoil you didn't want to do anything. Just sit the fuck down. Just Just put your helmet somewhere and just sit down like all this extra all this whatever you're doing, it's unnecessary. And people don't pretend like he's being definitely being revolutionary. I've been an asshole man don't do shit like that. That there was your employer and you were fine with them for what six whole smooth months? And the things that got you spend it and the thing that took away from your quote unquote incentives was the shit that you did not anybody else. It was you. So for everybody, we are here trying to convince the man to see like, is he mentally awesome? Also that he might be maybe, but it just isn't. So he's been in so let's get the track record you broke down. The same thing if it ain't his way he not trying to hear it. Just another one amends to so he didn't call himself I guess you could say money comes off a Super

Jeff:

Bowl. I say you don't get paid, right? He doesn't get paid. Because if I walk out of my job like that, they're not paying me for the rest of the year. And I'm not even gonna be able to collect unemployment because when they asked me what happened, did you get fired? I'm like, Nah, quit like not like yeah, you can't you can't collect no unemployment.

Anthony:

What's the what's the Okay, what was the what is the most remember were you ever remember leaving a job.

Jeff:

I was gonna get into that because I've walked out of some jobs. Oh, me too. I'm going back to high school. Like my first job was at friendlies. Friendlies restaurant, and anybody who knows me, anybody who knows me, I don't like being bothered. You just want to come to work and bounce at friendlies. You got to be polite and pleasant to everybody. They want you to actually be friendly. That's the that's their whole

Anthony:

had the wrong job, man. This right. It's in the job title.

Jeff:

They gave me all the menus and they wanted me to take them home and memorize them shits. Come back and be polite to all the customers. They wanted me to offer them newspapers. Like that was their whole shtick, friendlies. I mean, they're out of business. Now how here in Germany is one but there's one left just one it and I lasted like two days then I was I can't do this. I left never went back there was calling me like a week later, like, Hey, your shift is today. I'm like night after that. Granted, whatever I say here, can it be used against me and my current employer? Now I

Anthony:

want to make sure I won't go with it. This is years, years, years years ago? No.

Jeff:

Alright, so I worked at Six Flags, as well one time, and I drive at the time, I'm still in high school at this point. So I had to catch the bus all the way out there to Six Flags, on weekends. So I was spending my entire weekend out there. I was working at the the little boardwalk with the games. And I did that for like a weekend and I was I can't do this ship and I'm wasting my entire weekend over here. I'm leaving my house early. I'm getting home late because after my shift is over, then I gotta hop on a bus to drop, you know, to take me off to proceed. So I just went left and never went back to that. And then more recently, when I worked at a call center, which again, wrong job for me, because I don't really like you know, I'm saying I like to be bothered with people like

Anthony:

you guys have you guys have taken jobs that don't fit your personality.

Jeff:

So I worked at the call center and I took my vacation days yo I took my vacation days, went to Florida, came back never went back. didn't even realize I was gone. But they started calling me like oh yeah, he was texting me and calling me like hey, are you coming in today? Like send me my last check. And he tried to give me a hard time about sending my last check. My wife was a paralegal at the time and I was like yo babe I'm gonna need you to highlight these people. And she wrote them up a letter was like yo, we're gonna need jettison Mr. Dela Rosa his final check or you know, she's about to go down. Had my shit in the mail like a week later got my shit in the mail ASAP.

Anthony:

Got sick the dog sometimes man works.

Jeff:

She works what about you?

Anthony:

It was an unofficial existence. It was like a temp agency called like a deco and they also had little temp jobs you can do figure that You kind of get started in a place work your way up blah blah blah yada yada yada. So it was a few temp things that it was it was it was three jobs I quit I didn't tell him I quit one it was all through temp agencies one they had me like like file and shit like all these boxes you got to put them in here alphabetical order number that whatever the fuck you want to see right? And it was like oh white lady now like the post me like supervisor and she would just like she was accosted but like I would sit like I would sit down like on a stool and look through a box like transfer through like what I see now like I'm to try and get the stuff in order. Okay, cool. No problem. Pretty much shoot us the same fucking question again. Get one a certain final thing, but you're sure it's in the right order. That's when I tell a bitch like Yeah, I know how to snow. I know. Z like I know that. Yes. It's like yes, you were the Were you the only African American Fuck yeah, let's continue. Okay, so I did it. And I was like, as racist. I did it for like three weeks. And like every time she was always in a show to beat irritans Cut to fucking tired looking at her face. And then one day like, good like, you had to like clock in and clock out for lunch which is still the fucking thing. She like I did it. I think I brought like a sandwich some shit he didn't like like, you know, you still have like, like five minutes left on your lunch break. I like I was done. I didn't want to be late coming back. Like just next time. Just try to make sure you use it all. And I know something sad that just triggered some shit in my mind. And I was like, Okay, I'll probably do my forgotten a little quick break to get some air just relax again. Sure. No problem. Man walks move out at building walk cross street buses coming out to right my eyes right right on back home. I can give her no notice. I can give her no name. No, nothing. I will write the fuck on. I put them a little ours. Tim he called me like, how can we quit the job? No quitting requires me to like leave a written notice for two weeks. I didn't quit. I walked fuck out difference. That was one. I was a greeter at a Verizon store. Like that. For like before I was had anywhere like

Jeff:

a security guard. You look like you're standing at the door. You guys do stand at the border. Hey, thank you for coming.

Anthony:

Yeah, I got to keep doing it all day. And I remember like the guy who ran the store was like a, like a little person. I don't want to call him a door for mission. I noticed that there was a kind of offensive terms, but he was a little person. His little mindfuck was put it that way. When he come dressed out and his little shirt in his little blue chip. You can't take him seriously. Oh, no. He's trying to tell you. Ah, I tell you what to do. Try. Come on, man. Like, like, I picked three across the fucking room. Hey, don't get up. He was he was mad demeaning, I guess I guess because he was small. It kind of pissed me off. So I'm like, like, that was one like not like you'd be back tomorrow night. Is it? Like, you don't want to stay like No, I'm okay. You're sure? Yeah, I'm sure. But like, I thought he was legit little person. He was mad, aggressive, mad demeaning. He came up like just above my kneecap. Like I should just do is the last like room. But that's assault. So you can't do that.

Jeff:

Make sure you mentioned that your comments against little people have do not reflect on the culture.

Anthony:

No, no, I didn't. I didn't. And then I didn't

Jeff:

have a guest.

Anthony:

I put it very specifically. That's what I said. I didn't use any other kind of derogatory term. I don't have a problem with little people. I just had a problem with that little motherfucker. That's a different.

Jeff:

Well, let's agree that the way Antonio Brown decided to quit is not a correct way of quitting your job. All right, let me ask this question. And I'm anxious to hear how other people quit their job if they want to highlight us, you know, send us their shit. I'll read that shit in the next in the next episode when people

Anthony:

quit. Let's let's say you quit for $20 million. Right now. How do you quit your job?

Jeff:

Mmm hmm. Correct the correct way. You just given you two weeks. She only have time on your replacement. I mean, I don't hate my current job.

Anthony:

I hate fucking you better than me. This one I'm

Jeff:

just not gonna show up.

Anthony:

When you decide to leave a position, you have to give them two weeks. Well, it's courtesy to give two weeks notice. Correct? Right so they can find your replacement and all that right but when they fire you they don't give you two weeks. They don't get right. Do not pass go do not collect $2 Get out right now. Why am I getting the same courtesy? I guess like and I know I'm never coming back there again. The people that I'm cooling I'm going to be cool nonetheless. I thought about

Jeff:

this tutto I've thought about this to myself and I'm like yo, I'll probably blow this 20 mil real quick after Uncle Sam takes his half, and I pay everybody in my family's bills off, you know, I'm saying like, well, whoa, money blow this quick.

Anthony:

Don't do that. Well, the ones closest to that,

Jeff:

like, I'm gonna, I'm gonna definitely pay like my parents bills like my sister's bill like my wife's bills, make sure everybody's clean slate. That's it. And I've even pondered, you know, the idea of actually just keeping my job, like probably keeping it just not giving a fuck as much like I'd show up late. I'll be leaving early, I'll be taking days off like, I wouldn't care as much if they fire me, they fire me. You know, I'm saying, but that would just be extra money that you could just put away type of shit while you enjoy into your millions.

Anthony:

I asked somebody to job this and they said they wouldn't quit right away. They want to try to get fired. They said Lily, it was a little bit because the health insurance is cheaper, Mike. Good idea.

Jeff:

That's that's that's that is a good point. But let me take on the speaking of a lot of money and I also want to stay on the subject of football. There's a gentleman in New York by the name of Abdel Suero out of Greenwich Village, who suing both the Jets and the Giants for $6 billion. And this was his official statement it goes if the Giants and jets want to call themselves New York teams, they need to come back to New York. I've traveled to and from MetLife Stadium by mass transit and car service and both ways are a nightmare. The loss of six 2 billion in monetary damages 4 billion in punitive damages with legal claims against the two teams including false advertising and deceptive practices. The lawsuit claims that the plaintiff in the class which includes all giants and jets, fans that live in New York have suffered mental and emotional damage, including depression, sadness, anxiety, as a result of the defendants conduct. If you don't get the fuck out of here with that,

Anthony:

what's the guy's name again?

Jeff:

How much you think he's gonna get the dude's name is Abdel Suero. And the Giants issued a statement saying that they are gonna fight this case vigorously. The Jets, the giants of the Jets haven't commented. And like this is what I said before we had an episode of biology. I thought today's arrows are so soft. And that includes players and fucking fans, bro, this is the type of stupid shit

Anthony:

is fine because what's going to happen is that they're gonna throw that lawsuit out and he's still gonna have to put them legal fees.

Jeff:

He's gonna have to pay some shit.

Anthony:

Like he just like we're in a, we're still currently in a pandemic, year three, like I said, Coronas in his junior year. We are still trying to get an economy figured out. We're still trying to get a student loan thing figured out. We're trying to get teachers back in school people hire someone so forth. That this Muhfucka right here has the time and the audacity to now file a suit against mitigated Gaul, right? But here's the thing, but the thing is that if they were winning, he wouldn't care.

Jeff:

He mad because he has to keep driving to Jersey to watch a garbage product.

Anthony:

You don't have to. That's a choice. If this sheet is free on TV. It's free. You don't have to go like you can leave this watch from the comfort of your home. You don't have to go. If you're talking to them putting out a shitty product like but you're not suing the Knicks. And the Knicks have been bad for a very long time, a

Jeff:

very long time to the Knicks. So

Anthony:

it's always somebody trying to file some suit and so on and so forth. They don't get they ask be like Jason Derulo did homeboy that shows great. That good call Jason gorilla Asha, he just turned to a whole negative, swinging. Great.

Jeff:

But yo, I'm speaking of the Knicks. Again, speaking of soft as era. So, last year, we had a good year I went to the playoffs, Julius Randle had the best year he's ever had. He averaged 24 plus points 10 Plus rebounds six, seven assists the problem but yeah, go ahead. All Star most improved player, all of this great MVP candidate shouldn't give him that contract. So what did he so what does he do? He signs a big multi year contract with the New York Knicks right? And when you do that in New York or in any big market, you know what comes with that? The criticism that comes with that. You know what I'm saying? You know the pressure that comes with playing in New York, I know you say this year the Knicks so does but the so this year, the Knicks are not playing up to par right? They're not playing as good as everybody thought they were. We're out of the playoffs race as of right now. He's not playing as up to par. All his numbers are down all across the board. points rebounds, assists, shooting percentage is way down, right. So the other night, they're playing against the Boston Celtics and we're down by 25. So what are the fans do you're at the garden the fans are booing You're asked, and they have the right to do. So they're paying hefty sums to go to the game. They're paying your salary. But within reason, let's rewind it, right, but they're just booing right? And that happens at every sport, you start losing their boom, it's part of the game. You're right in New York, right? It's part of the game, especially in New York, especially New York acts, the Mets x the Yankees. So what does he do? He gives the crowd a thumbs down and tells them shut the fuck up. Great, the Knicks come back from 25 and they win that game, right? They come back and they win that match that game in dramatic fashion. It was a great comeback win at the buzzer. They interview him. Julius Randle says and I quote, I really don't give a fuck what anybody has to say. To be honest. I'm out there playing nobody knows the game out there better than I do care to what everybody has to say. I guess he felt the backlash, the team felt the backlash. Because the very next day, I don't know out of the kindness of his heart or the team forced him I'm gonna go with the ladder. He was forced to apologize. So he sends out a tweet. And he goes and I quote, just want to send a quick message to our fans and be clear I love NYC and being part of this team and this franchise, and like most knick fans I am really passionate about about as being successful. My family and I love how the fans and New Yorkers have embraced and accepted us and have made us feel great about our decision to commit long term with the team this past summer. The support means the world to me or to us, I understand that my actions also represent the league, this organization and the city and that I should have handled things last night differently and express myself with more professionalism, and more appropriate language in the heat of the moment. My comment was an example of how sometimes you say things you regret to people you love, even if it came from a place of passion and deep love. Nobody wants to win more than me and I will continue to show loyalty and dedication to my teammates, the entire Knicks organization, and the fans who have shown me and my family so much love. I'm going to keep focusing on the future. Thank you go next. So he felt the pressure. And quite frankly, I'm at the verge of I'm almost done with this guy. Because if you can't God advance Man Boy. Because if you can't handle the heat, get the fuck out the kitchen. And this is New York City. I know we haven't been good in a long time. You sign the contract. You got your bag and now you don't care right? He's all he's all in all the commercials now. Now you're just a celebrity in New York. Meanwhile, the team is trash. You need to put your head down shut the fuck up and go play and leave it all out on the court. That's how the fans are gonna respect you. Don't give us those thumbs down don't tell us to shut the fuck up. Don't give us none of that nonsense. You go out there you play. You play with your heart out on your sleeve. And if we win if we lose whatever we go stand behind you.

Anthony:

You shouldn't get that contract in the first place. I told you that before he's all excited I said he ain't it and people looked at me like I was crazy that boy is not it man. Did the same shoot with Marcus Morris. He came out dead chucking away we can't trade the market more like he's never been good he's never been a star. He ain't ready to trade him I'm ready to trade random watch dude and hearing it same thing with the contract. Yeah, he's not it he's gonna sit there and be mad and upset and bothered by everything that's going on. Why can't we do this? Why aren't we because you are not it RJ Barrett you're gonna keep fighting for him to trust me he's not it that my foot decide about one game this man does like he's the future trust me that boy it none of them are it none of them get robbed none of it. Julius wasn't it last year I told everybody said he never shot over 33% from three his entire career over 22 and 40% that's not sustainable that's not him the numbers go back down because get more other options around him so he's not having as many shots that hit power and everything else like that because if you're the star being booed as part of the game reboot pack McCune Phox Yes we did. He did great. We boo pat it didn't make a difference Pat blew that fucking layer we blew Pat easy right? So the problem is quite simply is this you have a contract with him where it's his heavy but tonight No 45 $50 million a year heavy you're probably gonna need to package them up with something or package them argue or something have random be the number two because he's not a number one he's never been in number one. It's already in his head and it was in your head is already too late. But like I said a guy like him. Coming to Europe, it felt good. At least in cheer ism. You know, feeling great calling and also everything else like that and you play like shit, you think they still want to love you? It's not how this works. They don't they don't care for the person that's inside the jersey. They just cheer for the jersey. So you gotta get you the fuck out to get you out of there. But I just feel bad for him because he just kind of delusional right now but you got to figure this out or But we were just in New Orleans. This brings it somewhere. I don't give a shit design 350 Bring him in. He seems fun. At least. But like

Jeff:

facts. Yeah, before we go on a quick break, let me do a segment of and you tell me if this is racist, or this is just ignore it I'm talking about the Kevin Porter Jr. situation. Ah, Kevin. So Kevin Porter Jr. is a player from the Houston Rockets. And before you

Anthony:

continue, I know my answer, but they need to hear sorry, go ahead.

Jeff:

Okay. Kevin Porter Jr. in place for the rockets. They're playing a game against the wizards. He hits a game winning three. And the wizards broadcaster Glen Spencer said this and he goes, You got you've got to give credit Kevin Porter Jr. Like his dad pulled that trigger right at the right time. Okay, now you figure you're saying Okay, so what's wrong with that? What was wrong with that is that Kevin Porter Jr's father, Kevin points in prison was in prison for shooting and killing somebody. And then after that, he got shot and killed himself. So when you say just like his dad, he pulled that trigger. That's just sounded wild insensitive. Then after the backlash, the commentator said he made a mistake. He confused Kevin Porter Jr. with a former wizards player that his name was also Kevin Porter. Okay, cool. Items and steak. The problem with that excuse is that the Kevin Porter that you're referring to was not a three point shooter. Nor was he a sniper. He shot 80% for his career from downtown so he was not a good shooter. So that wasn't even a good you don't I'm saying attempt to try to cover your shit. That wasn't even a good comparison. I understand that if there was a Kevin Porter basketball player senior that was a great shooter. But there was a Kevin Porter former basketball player from the wizards that was not a good shooter. So that statement isn't even valid. They're your thoughts was that ignorant Is that racist? Is that just retarded or stupid?

Anthony:

Ignorant it was bordering on racist because I get tired of shoot I really really good time to shoot my people bail. They always act like they don't know something but they know something about it said in a very slick way. But I like I thought about like I get the confusion like you're a broadcaster you probably just not really aware of it you just seen some guy named Kevin Porter JR. He's an NBA he probably like he's probably just the the son of the basketball player that used to be Kevin Porter used to play for this team for the women's like okay, so it makes sense. So I could see the connection I'm ducking racist for now like I said it's just kind of stupid because I'm I'm actually really probably stopping 2020 to give him my people bail but I'm going to shoot him bail for now cuz I can see how they can make that that disconnection. Like how like the whole thing like I don't understand why people shooting AB bail when you can kind of see the history of everything going on behind them so it doesn't really make sense for you to do so. This do I'm going to shoot it because you have announced that always tend to say slick things. Oh, something like they do that. So you know that they're trying to throw a jab. And I don't think he was like just just dumb just kind of unaware to situation. So for this time, I'm going to shoot us unveil. It is only Get Out of Jail Free card. This is only one. Does he lose his job over this? I don't think he should. I think I think if you can honestly like I honestly thought because he's Kevin Porter JR. He's in league I thought that he was the son of the Terran police playing the NBA. Like as a kingdom Martin Jr. in the NBA. But Canyon Mars is that like when you get when you get to the juniors is like your NBA player and like I said, being six foot two and above it, you're basically a mutant, like, Are you sure?

Jeff:

But in today's culture called a cancel coach, I wouldn't be surprised they do fine. And LeBron goes on and he starts tweeting and posting stuff and you know, talking shit about him, which is not helping his cause either. You know what I'm saying? And if at the very least, he's guilty of being ill prepared of not knowing who the players are, you know, I'm saying in the game that he's commentating for, and that's probably what he's guilty. I'm

Anthony:

guilty of being a dumbass doesn't make you guilty of being a racist. Right? There's a very solid line that's not really thin at all between both because you're probably both at the same time. But I don't think it was trying to be racist, like even that, like, if you're trying to make some slick talk like you could probably do a little bit better than that, like that wasn't going to suffice. So I think he's probably making an honest mistake hoping to lose his job over it like really for anybody losing a job over something that's fixable. Like it was an honest mistake. It's an honest mistake, but it could have said he could have just done it. Now, I gotta say that the Microsoft fucked up I know see that?

Jeff:

That's like it's a thin line between dumb and stupid

Anthony:

that that thing is paper thin it's paper.

Jeff:

But let's go on a break real quick. Today's episode is sponsored by the following.

Jeff:

We represent a culture to represent the culture podcast. And before we go on last week, remember last week I had I had we were talking about core day. And I was talking about the backlash I had gotten particularly from one individual that goes by the name of revolt on Twitter. Remember that he spoke about his list and I got on him about the list. Well, revolt has issued a statement official statement and I'll read it and he goes and it's titled press release from the desk of Lindsey Andres owner President CEO of revolt records January 6 2021. Which is actually he misquote even is printed that it should be January 6 2022. So I already found a typo on his shirt anyway,

Anthony:

he already fucking so he goes so human made it back into like, I'm going to go back home and rewrite this like to whom it may

Jeff:

concern. Last week I engaged in some questionable behavior in a Twitter group chat that is apparently filled with a federal agent that I was unaware of. I would I would like to explain myself and my comments and to possibly clear the air in regards to the incident that has since come to light. My original point was that it surprised me that someone whose job it is to speak for a living and who has the means and the money to fix it has not done anything about a lisp. If there were a news anchor with busted ass crocodile teeth, someone could easily chew their way out of a cardboard box or eat corn on the cob through a chain link fence. I would think they would get braces as their profession requires them to be in front of the camera. Same goes for core day in his speech impediment there was not malicious or intended to shame him. But as the conversation progressed, we started joking around and I took the joke too far. I will be stepping down from my position effective immediately and would like to apologize to our fan singular out there. So obviously this is all in good fun. Shout out to my man revolt. But core days new album is coming out next week, January 14, titled bird's eye view so I am going to be looking forward to that.

Anthony:

No shit.

Jeff:

Now did you hear the rumors about Jill Scott

Anthony:

that she got to 60

Jeff:

Right so they're apparently false. Okay, they've heard or heard or heard rumors, they've proven to be false. They were just news there's some news circulating on the internet you know whatever. But people were tripping there was a whole Twitter feeds or conversations or threads rather people were to take when they were to tape will send the link somebody send the links and the link there's no link because it doesn't exist right somebody put I ain't seen this many black people excited at one since Black Panther This shit is crazy. Shout out to Joe Scott

Anthony:

I why I just don't understand why people do so interested in the sex lives of other people I just don't care

Jeff:

they realize pornography is free you can go online and just go on all types of webs you know websites and white porn like what's up with there's the fastest of the fixation of seeing celebrity and then Britney Spears started you know putting out nude pictures of herself on Instagram or Twitter or whatever it was and people are wow oh my god. Like what is the fixation with celebrities nude pictures and videos?

Anthony:

It is This is your album pushers dishes sucks no one cares like I've never really fully cared about celebrity like doing whatever celebrity shit would like I don't like I want to go fuck about my own sex life should be poppin I don't really care what other people are doing like people maybe like I said the Joe Scott thing he was asked for a while and I want to hurt it is looking like they're looking everyone who got the link who got the link who got so much is create a link with like some like federal tracking thing or virus and the jails and then to jail stupid send them

Let me give you some honest pointers about what you are not doing like you're not giving him the prop you got to like, talk a little more some other shit like come on. But let me show you how it feels. Let me show show me your 16 facts. Let me I will sit here my little my little thin little glasses. I'll put like a little Ascot

Jeff:

Anthony:

stars 31 shirt Chuck they're a little harder. That's not enough. You gotta squeeze right? Like grow the fuck up. Stop doing

Jeff:

shit like that. And as far as Britney, I don't know maybe she was just celebrating her freedom. She's free from her her father's control or whatever. Or she didn't take a medication that they wanted it to. And staying on Twitter. You saw the Twitter by Kodak Black. He goes I'll do a vs with Jay Z if he stopped No. Let me just read what he said I don't care. He said I'll do a vs with Jeezy if he wins he gets 15% of my catalog if I when he made me vice president president of rock nation and it was and I saw people saying oh shit Kodak is bound to be a VP like no he not he don't got no catalog for j if I'm J I'll take him up on that offer and what I'll do is I'll put the shit I'll put a tracker right on the screen live where people are voting in from all over the country. And then once you once you beat him in the vs I'll sign his ass to rock nation just soccer keep making money off him on all his shit.

Anthony:

I don't I don't want nothing to do with him at all. I don't care once once Jake made that one comment about versus always on everybody. Like oh, I got smoked for JC here's the thing it's a bunch of artists out here who want to do versus y'all can all choose each other none of y'all are doing that y'all just want cloud I get it understanding Jay is not doing this he definitely not doing so he's definitely doing what Kodak Black how to fuck even come to JC with stipulations about what you want to do with him and a versus 15% of this are you oh you make me an executive arm right? Like you're nobody to me you're an ant in the middle of this giant fucking world that we got. And I was going to go come dictate terms to me that's not going to happen. Kodak should fuck up. No one cares. Then he didn't get arrested again. Yep. So he got pardoned out of jail and he got arrested again. Now you too flimsy even make it to the verse you might still be in jail by that man going going back to a little boy.

Jeff:

And before we go, man, I finished a Will Smith book. Finally, bro. Would you think it's very inspirational and should make me want to do more with my life? I think was a really good book. I didn't like to know because you know, obviously he's accomplished quite a bit and a lot of the parts sound very cocky. It sounds arrogant. It sounds like he's you know, I'm saying to Nikka Gordon and be somebody like he's clapping him, you know, patting himself on the back on a lot of it because he's accomplished a whole lot. Yeah, I mean, he talks about shit that I didn't even know he accomplished like the most consecutive number one movies. You know, he had like eight box office hits. And nobody's ever done that, you know, all the way from his rap career being the first rap Grammy being the first rapper to push a double album. Like a bunch of shit that I you know, but I didn't like the ending at the ending. He jumps out of the helicopter. And basically the theme at the end is that he's gonna live his life now. And I'm saying he spent the whole his whole life like not really living it. Like worrying about just being the best that now he's just gonna be free and he's going to just do all the show. He's never done whatever. What I took out the book was nigga, please. Joe did you know that Willow is signed to rock nation? So she breached earlier on in her career? She breached that ship because she did the whole you know, push with my hair back and forth with my hair back. one hit wonder they may they may make money off of it. They did a little tour. And then she one day she tells will like yo Daddy, I'm done. He's like, Oh, yeah, we're done today. But you know, we got to do this album. You know, we probably you know, we got to do it. Like no, I'm done. Daddy. Like what you mean, I'm done. We still got some more tour days. Like no, I'm done. I'm not doing this. No more like nah. We promised Mr. Jay Z. She told them know that you promise Jay Z. I promise Jay

Anthony:

Z. Your guardian. You know,

Jeff:

we got this obligation. We got this contractual obligation. Point is you know, she quit back in the day. And I don't know if that was a breach of contract, but she actually dropped an album last which I wasn't even aware of. There was zero marketing or promotion for you could find it on title. I found that shit. So I guess she's still signed on the she's still under the rock nation and she's still trying to you know, Polly finish the contract. Yeah, Andrea she put out a little bullshit album it's just trashed but it's like rock it's like rock I don't know what it is she she's not a good thing that I mean the shit is trash. I can't fuck with it. But whatever. I thought it was interesting. Jays like I mentioned record, son But yo, let's get this contract completed at least let me get some more of my money's worth.

Anthony:

Okay, let me clear my books this quarter. Did you have the contracts? We're good to go.

Jeff:

By the way speaking of records, m&ms music to be murdered by has now spent 100 weeks on the Billboard 200 being the longest charting album of the decade. Yo why you need to stop your hate for Eminem has gone too far. Your hate for Eminem has gone too far and it hasn't and now

Anthony:

I like rap I don't care about rap faxing like I you set records he's been sending records no no. Nothing new. So we got what's alright so we'll spend seven minutes on it so five or whatever. Cuz I told you last week I don't care if you fucked up or not. So we're gonna talk about Spider Man shit real quick. Oh, there's people who haven't seen it that's just sound like a personal problem. Fuck it. Go ahead what what is spider man come out that actually came out like two weeks ago. Look man they had Christmas they had New Year's that's the new year just started they took some personal time off sooner during the day and then going into going to chilling. Want me to do I'm sorry. I tried. But she was fantastic. She was amazing. You know

Jeff:

people geeking the fuck out he was cheering screaming when they seen all the Spider Man's come out there was wild when they saw Murdock there was there was wiling out these kids and my wife was mad annoyed like I'm gonna need them to calm down but there was while oh

Anthony:

shit is Murdoch because Matt Murphy's your wife can go do shit like that. You can't she has to go see other movies you can't go to things where people gonna fanboy out they can't help themselves. They can

Jeff:

then when God has told me they was wow and they was wiling the fuck out.

Anthony:

And that's the amazing thing like all of this shit was already like ruined. Yeah, but again true, right? Do the spider man they're all gonna be in it awesome to me. Like you know

Jeff:

what seeing people will just you know what seeing people was wiling out to when Jamie Foxx said you know somewhere out there there's a black spider man. Everybody was like oh, and I thought he was gonna come out at the end of some I thought he was gonna come out. But they just teased it he's not really not ready to pull them out yet. They all keep putting them in in the cartoon movie.

Anthony:

That's still that's still by far my favorite Spider Man property.

Jeff:

Oh easily Miles Morales for your fucking black so of course.

Anthony:

No the Spider Man into the spider verse. Yeah, it's better than every spider man told me they got to put that shit into live action. It's not a fact about being black is great storytelling. Like that is the perfect Spider Man movie period. Like I put that sheet up against any of them even Spider Man to vitamin spider verse miles I'm not saying it'd be fun because their mouth is miles ahead all of them shits.

Jeff:

But I like the interaction between Toby Garfield and Harlan like when all the interactions on screen and she was hilarious. Yeah, how come you don't got the shooters through your skin like now I got cartridges like you know they made it aware the differences that they had and the different villains that they've faced. I thought that was funny.

Anthony:

I was surprised it was in the movies for so long.

Jeff:

Yeah, what you thought it was a real quick cameo.

Anthony:

Well I thought it was like maybe like the last 10 to 15 minutes like like strange opens up the portal and and yeah, they come busting out and he'll come like know the last third of the movie like Oh, shit. Oh shit, you

Jeff:

know people were geeking now before we even saw like when the little fat Hawaiian kid started doing the spare window the portal opens and you just see him from the back from the back you don't even see his face. Right away. People start cheering like oh shit, Toby still the old man told me still to go bro.

Anthony:

They cheered when Garfield walked out they scream when he took his mask off acts like you don't even really fuck with the Amazing Spider man like that. Like the first one like the rest of these are trash I didn't like them but I

Jeff:

guess that they opened up that that University and I'm saying like movies I've never really done that shit. And now DC is gonna do it with this with the flash and all of that but that's a different story

Anthony:

that yet the thing that's going to reset the timeline that said Superman and Batman it'd be super girl in that girl

Jeff:

because now anybody could come back 20 stocks come back they could figure it out somewhere Black Panther if the multiverse is gonna be opening

Anthony:

I mean well black pens a little tricky because he's dead. They had to bring back a

Jeff:

well the character the character isn't just an actor, but you know, talking about replacing the actor you know, some people are against it some people they should know so when they kill them all they got to kill him off on the screen or what?

Anthony:

No, they just had to recast them. Like, right whatever the next one is like he was away on something and he comes back he's a different guy

Jeff:

right now. Yeah, like he's all he's away on a mission for the Avengers. Whatever. We're not even now just keep them on the suit. The whole movie like you don't have to show you No,

Anthony:

no, fuck that. No, that's no fun. Look, we went through what Well, I'm not going to count what's the thought number of top my head? What at least seven? Batman's how many Superman's five inches? Right? You just keep switching. It's fine. It happens. We switch characters okay, I know the two of the most iconic like, on this one chair with me. Who would you cast

Jeff:

bro? Would you cash like I just Alba somebody like that was no snipes or

Anthony:

What's it got to me problems? Like Michael B Jordan. He was our killmonger was trying to switch it makes it weird. No, no, no to all of them. I was thinking I'm home What else did Jesus and a black black Messiah but he's already he's already he's already in this he can't use him probably either. Yeah, I do. Or he's what you saw the matrix now. What matrix? Okay. All right. Trying to think some shooting with it. If you see his face you know who he is? So you saw Kenny man the new one? Yeah. Get the guy that guy.

Jeff:

What about Hear me out? What about Will Smith?

Anthony:

Thank you for tuning in to the coach's weekend. If Will Smith is Black Panther I give all the way. Like that's just the laziest piece of pizza Casson anyway cuz no cuz he already tried that the African accent doing concussion to sound like shit. I guess you're right. Nah, Will Smith is black as well know because because you know Will Smith like if I'm going black being Black Panther I'm gonna do the whole soundtrack like make no you know movie Yeah, yeah, absolutely. Like the black man. Yeah. He won. He won the first single executive producer credit like no, he talks

Jeff:

about that shit in the book too how he would make a hit movie and then he would make the hit soundtrack to go with it

Anthony:

you know what I'm saying? And I was like a formula he did it because he do it in double down yep. Like Like everybody thought that men and black woman was so dope when he's dancing with the alien I'm like she was allowed but that should make money that she went platinum like it was don't ask that like the third time the fourth time like going dancing sailing and getting going because Hedberg and make a bop and shit like Now freeze Will Smith is black pants

Jeff:

yeah and ended with this because New York City's bought to be late you know this is gonna be late. Yo, check this

Anthony:

out your your I said black bar Detroit a Chopin Wilson with a black but you should it was just Antonio Brown was a question I asked you. You said no five. Brain injuries as you got your check out this report from

Jeff:

CNN. Just days after taking office Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg released a memo detailing new charging bail plea and sentencing policies that he said he believes will make the city safer and the criminal justice system more fair. Yet the plan faces criticism from police union leaders. Why do you ask among the crimes Brack said his office would not prosecute include marijuana misdemeanors, including selling more than three houses not paying public transportation fair trespassing, except the fourth degree stalking charge, resisting arrest, obstruction, obstructing governmental administration and in certain cases and prostitution. Can you imagine New York being able to just hop over to the fucking subway train shifts prostitute sell drugs and they'll be Wow down the street be like some Ghostbusters shit.

Anthony:

There there are some imposing a load it's not doing on the corner some laws.

Jeff:

What are the chances of these laws

Anthony:

passing? Cuz you're not legalizing prostitution, they're saying they're shying away from it. Man that the whole thing is like, you know, it's because it's other serious crimes going on. I'm really gonna try to just bus every woman walking through cuz I think he's selling it. Or somebody was like, you shouldn't have more than 300 We don't even wage properly like an ounce you should be good to go anything above the price of the ship.

Jeff:

He went ahead and went into mono repo with that he got but like, Well, you see felons I try you know, try to help you out. But they wouldn't let me pass these laws. That's what he's gonna say at the end of the day.

Anthony:

Well, I mean, I mean, the laws aren't unreasonable. The whole thing that we want the police to handle more dangerous times. Like, if you have to turns out you have to turn so mama sent a copy to you, you might run over somebody or you might get hit by a train or some other calamity might happen. That makes no sense to me. Why are we wasting our time? Is this this petty ship? Is it the same thing like like, like train fare? I mean, only conducted like you didn't swipe it and jump no thing. I don't think everyone's gonna be standing there doing that. Because like, yeah, just if you make it over the rail, you're putting too much trust in humans and humanity. No, it's like the whole thing like why they can't shut it department stores is because it's an insurance issue. Like you could go into Macy's right now boots, a whole bunch sitting and run right out of the store. No one in that store can go outside a store and tissue because outside the store, they're not covered in the store if they fall so much that they're covered. Just popped up but that's the way it goes in this. These are small crimes like we're not going to stretch ourselves about these unless it's the patent of something that's bigger but fuck no I

Jeff:

guess it's down the lines of like when Mike say when Mikey she said that he you know he that they legalized all drugs by him in Oregon and Portland

Anthony:

but explains a whole lot

Jeff:

yeah but yo Orson Welles said the enemy of art is the absence of limitations has been the death was like in love with aliens shit and all types of the whole shit

Anthony:

yeah he's a great director but Emily like it's just so weird I like understand how a disaster death like his amazing visionary

Jeff:

he said he ate like to say in America where there were millions of people eat themselves to death on a yearly basis. He talked about

Anthony:

they tried to but not like him they fail

Jeff:

but y'all met him in those days Hey holla

Anthony:
