Bob Ryan lists the biggest problems for each sport on UNO Sports Tonight
One and only Bob Bryan is here and there. Attack -- to try to sold all the support world problems. In five minutes to find speed dating exactly had a good day I got -- what are we got it all figured out the Bob the biggest problem in the National Football League in your opinion right now is one Walker's. Concussion thing because it is such a difficult thing to -- to attack and you have to attack it and ethical level of attack in a practical level. And and and their their stats it's it is very very difficult but it's close -- it gusted and we're not going back. We're not -- where we are now is is beginning of the -- we're in the middle of the process I don't know where we are exactly fits in the process and we're not going back it's good because. I could hundred anymore and I think what they've done or the hardest thing to do and all bit. Was the kind of stared down but macho -- of playing with a concussion. And I never thought the National Football League and its owners would have the hammer the way. To be able to get that done because that's controlled my coaches. In many ways it's out of the coach's hands now Bill Parcells would tell you get the smelling salt rubbed some the -- -- -- back there. Those coaches can't operate in this league and we. We had that benchmark moment this week I thought the Bernard public statement coming those that statement about the future of the league -- prediction and maybe you wanna just in thirty years. Okay that they hear from acquire a pick back up player who's involved directly in on and the whole. Dialogue as he is and as is is fascinating I mean there's so -- so long we have such a long way to go in this. But the other thing that I would say real quick for the NFL is finding a way to increased domestic revenues. And not be in this thing up to Mexico City Toronto LA and one did and really put players even more in jeopardy. -- Major League Baseball. The game is slow. It's boring. It doesn't appeal to young people. I don't know how they and that is the. And -- -- and yet the -- disability getting seven they'll be with a B right now I understand that to the TV their money that's going on around. At all -- you know obviously I disagree with you expect me about it sure that's -- I think it's the best game ever invented I think it's more talk about based Williams threes which put together and we can have that discussion some of the day. But I do you -- -- young do you think it's true but it's not just all conventional sports are under attack. By the video game I use public today does the -- game youth of today they're under attack there all. Believe me and they all have a worry about the fact that the conventional way of sport that we've known work. About a 150 years give or take it would start is is is changing. And it can be a very different sports landscape and and fifties and what's the biggest problem and nobody MLB well right now it's it's a public does the public care about the drug thing or not. Here we have another situation I didn't come and collect today with that and we did but once the able to -- that they're on top of everything you know testing is that a believable. This is that. Players still wanna do and you logistic but with Melky Cabrera as a as a poster child for the new generation of it here of people would say it. He did it he got caught. How much -- -- what two years ago became as a result of the about -- airport. And an irrelevant fact and the fifty games have given went up -- which is not a market where is the corridor where he was when he was sticking up the -- and Kansas City two years ago who's gonna stop -- biggest problem of the NBA. The -- game yet and I three teams always but but to. It's getting better I don't know back but we don't credibility of the officials what other -- -- I just think it's so funny I was down at the Sports Museum exhibit at that -- was just today and there's -- -- a big blow -- of a magazine article from like 1960. And what was that might -- -- stories incompetent officiating hurting game. Well that. Army sites and there -- changes it was it was initial 1946 of an issue and 2746. About the officials and my biggest it's personal. Coaches strangling electronic games. Defense superseding offense is the biggest problem in the game has been -- About fifteen year and it's getting better the balance is being -- national hockey league's biggest problem. That's probably biggest problem part furcal getting here because the Bruins are booming and and that and Billy Clinton -- post is very good that the immediate their returns are very very good. Biggest attended that and hockey I'm aggressive fighting because you know you very well that the Gary Bettman a lot of people look at him and say if I did I know I can and probably the problem is -- are published their letter went we. And their product this is is been should be shaped and get into something that a lot of -- -- like. It's the only franchise to Phoenix -- the franchise and an and Nash -- -- you on the -- guys franchises simply today and pick and unfairness of the tilt of too many teams in America not enough and. And it. I love these kinds of discussions that you have actually kind of had the baseball one. A little -- you know it's it's sport -- one thing you know not let it very much -- it again you know what you mean about the fact that all the conventional sports are -- -- have a -- -- -- a different generational. Interest in what constitutes and it's what -- -- I would say three of them had issues baseball basketball. And hockey. Have the I the National Football League right now I don't have another problem -- football -- thing in this well eight in its gonna keep parents -- to let it -- -- kids what they're gonna change the game to make it more you know more closer to touch football. You don't ever get to -- touch football but closer in ten years was many people like it but we'll fix on wood that's a different outcome of the -- one bit. So the slugger Albert and and I'm I'm a bubble was on this matter that has. How does all -- that good I thought yeah.
