Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: September 20, 2019 (Pt. 1)


GET THE LATEST WEATHER AT KDKA.COM. IT IS THE NIGHTLY SPORTS CALL . RIGHT NOW, PITTSBURGH’S BEST SPORTS SHOW IS ABOUT TO BEGIN. CALL US OR TWEET US, WE HAVE GOT THINGS TO TALK ABOUT ON THE CONTRACTING SPORTS CALL. THANK YOU FOR TUNING IN TONIGHT, NIGHTLY SPORTS. I AM RICH WALSH, WE HAVE A LOT TO TALK ABOUT TONIGHT. ONE OF THE MAIN THINGS TO TALK ABOUT IS ANTONIO BROWN , IS THIS SAGA FINALLY OVER? HE IS CUT BY THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS, EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT IT TODAY, SHE HE SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN SIGNED BY THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS. I GUESS THEY REALIZE THAT HE IS NOTHING BUT A DISTRACTION AFTER ANOTHER ACCUSER COMES FORWARD BECAUSE OF A SPORTS ILLUSTRATED STORY AND THEN HE RESPONDED BY SENDING THE ACCUSER THREATENING, INTIMIDATING, MENACING TEXT MESSAGES THAT MADE THEIR WAY ON TO SOCIAL MEDIA AND INTO THE HANDS OF THE NFL. SO, YOU SAW HIM WALK OUT OF THE PRESS CONFERENCE, COUPLE HOURS LATER, ANTONIO BROWN WAS CUT. I AM SURPRISED IT TOOK THIS LONG TO BE HONEST. HE DID HIS THING, YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT A GUY WHO IS COMPLETELY SABOTAGING HIS CAREER. HOPEFULLY NOW, I WOULD HOPE THAT THE NFL WENT PUT THE WORD OUT, WE WILL WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR. LET HIM GET THROUGH ALL OF THIS STUFF. IF YOU ARE A TEAM NEXT YEAR, YOU WANT TO KICK THE TIRES ON HIM, I GET A. IF THERE IS ANOTHER TEAM THAT WILL SIGN HIM THIS YEAR, I THINK THAT SENDS A HORRIBLE MESSAGE TO THE PATRIOTS PICKING HIM UP. I THOUGHT IT WAS COLLUSION. I AM SAYING TO ME, IF THERE IS ANOTHER TEAM THAT WILL PICK HIM UP, THEY ARE OUT OF THEIR MIND. I SAID THIS, WHAT, THREE WEEKS AGO WHEN THE WHOLE THING WAS GOING ON WITH THE OAKLAND RAIDERS. FOUR HOURS LATER THE PATRIOTS PICK HIM UP. SOME OF THIS STUFF GOES AWAY, THE TEAM NEEDS A RECEIVER. LOOK. THERE IS A CIVIL LAWSUIT. THE CIVIL SUIT. WHAT IF THE COMMISSIONER SAYS WE WILL NOT SUSPEND ANTONIO BROWN WE DO NOT FEEL THERE IS ENOUGH THERE ? ALL OF AVAILABLE. NOW, YOU ARE A TEAM THAT NEEDS A RECEIVER. OKAY CAN THE NFL OFFER HIM TO GET HELP? NO DO YOU THINK HE NEEDS HELP? IF THEY WOULD SUSPEND HIM, THEY COULD HAVE A PLAN THAT HE NEEDS TO GET HELP TO COME BACK, YES. IN TERMS OF RIGHT NOW, HE IS NOT SUSPENDED. THERE IS AN INVESTIGATION GOING ON. IS THAT COMMISSIONER EXEMPT LIST? UNTIL THEY PUT HIM ON THAT, HE IS AVAILABLE. YOU KNOW HOW IT IS, WHAT WAS THE GUYS NAME? GIVE ME A TEAM THAT WOULD BE INTERESTED. THE BENGALS? HOW ABOUT HOW ABOUT JANGLES BACK IN CLEVELAND. TEAMS WANT TO WIN. ANDY REID, REMEMBER ANDY HE HAD TWO SONS THAT WERE INVOLVED IN DRUGS, I THINK ONE OF THEM DIED OF AN OVERDOSE. THEY GOT ARRESTED, SO THAT IS WHY HE BROUGHT IN MICHAEL VICK WHEN HE WAS IN PHILADELPHIA. HE WANTS TO BE THE GUY WHO REHABS PEOPLE. HOW ABOUT A YOUNG QUARTERBACK ? IF ANTONIO BROWN DECIDED I WILL PUT THIS FOOLISHNESS BEHIND ME AND YOU PUT HIM WITH THE CHIEFS . I’M THINKING OF OTHER TEAMS THAT MIGHT NEED SOMEONE THE JETS. WHAT WE FOUND IS TEAMS WANT TO WIN MORE THAN THEY WANT TO DO THE RIGHT THING. I’M NOT SAYING HE WILL GET SIGNED AGAIN, BUT UNTIL WE ARE AT WEEK 17, I WILL BELIEVE IT. HE COST HIMSELF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS NOW. HE WOULD HAVE MADE CLOSE TO 20 MILLION WITH STEELERS, GOT A BETTER DEAL WITH THE RAIDERS BECAUSE HE WAS GETTING MORE GUARANTEED MONEY. HE DID NOT MAKE ANY MONEY, FORCED HIS WAY OUT OF THERE. HE SIGNED A DECENT DEAL WITH THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN WORTH UP TO 35 MILLION. THAT IS ALL DONE. HE WILL ONLY MAKE 150,000, THAT IS A GOOD CHUNK OF CHANGE, COMPARED TO WHAT HE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN A $5 MILLION CHECK ON MONDAY. CANNOT AFFORD TO LOSE MONEY. HE WILL BE BROKE YOU KNOW FIVE YEARS FROM NOW IF HE DOES NOT PLAY AGAIN, HE WILL BE BROKE. IF HE CANNOT PLAY FOOTBALL EVER AGAIN, I THINK HE WILL PLAY AT SOME POINT. WHAT DOES HE DO FOR A LIVING? WHAT HAPPENS TO THIS GUY? HE CANNOT BE A COACH HE HAS MADE HIMSELF SO TALK TO, IT WILL BE HARD FOR HIM. THE THING YOU FIND OUT IN THIS WORLD IS IF YOU HAVE FAME, THERE IS ALWAYS AN OUTLET FOR YOU SOMEWHERE. JOSE STILL FINDS WAYS TO MAKE MONEY YOU KNOW WHAT I’M SAYING? WHAT IS THE JADE THE SKATER THAT HIRED SOMEONE WHO HIT. TONYA HARDY? SHE HAS BEEN DOWN AND OUT. KEEPS BOUNCING BACK YOU KNOW? IF YOU HAVE THAT SAME, THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING, HE CAN BE LIKE. THERE WILL NOT BE AN OUTLET OUT THERE IN REALITY. THERE WILL NOT BE AN OUTLET WHERE THIS GUY WILL MAKE $30 MILLION IN TWO YEARS. WHAT IF MTV DECIDED THEY WANTED TO DO A REALITY SHOW WITH HIM, THE PEOPLE WOULD NOT WATCH IT? THAT IS THE COUNTRY WE LIVE IN. THAT WOULD BE HIS ONLY? AGAIN, WE HAVE THIS YOU KNOW 15-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHO IS A MULTIMILLIONAIRE BECAUSE BASICALLY SHE WAS DISRESPECTFUL TO HER MOTHER ON MAURY OR DR. PHIL OR ONE OF THOSE SHOWS. BECAUSE THE OUTSIDE GIRL? SHE IS A REALITY STAR. OKAY, YEAH, YEAH. SHE WAS REALLY DISRESPECTFUL TO HER MOTHER AT 13 YEARS OLD. A BUNCH OF PEOPLE BASICALLY LAUGHING AT HER. SHE SAID YEAH, CATCH ME OUTSIDE AND SHE BECAME THE CATCH ME OUTSIDE GIRL. SHE IS LIKE MULTIMILLION DOLLAR PERSON, SO I DO NOT PUT IT PAST ANYBODY IN THIS WORLD. IF YOU HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF FAME AND RECOGNITION. YOU KNOW WHAT? I THINK HE WILL FIND SOMETHING I’M SURE. WE WILL BE TAKING, YEAH. THEY ARE GIVING MORE RUNS. I DO NOT THINK WE WILL GET ANY, ALTHOUGH WE DO HAVE A COUPLE. 600 IS THE NUMBER, GIVE US A CALL. WE WILL BE BACK IN TWO MINUTES.
