CSN Washington dot com. I wanted to do was watch live from the -- Washington times and Ivan Carter missile Leslie reader. -- -- changing my shoulder later how excited about that now I can get fat and grind but fun old Danny O'Brien actions or else take a look at our menu today or what we're talking about. Oh cycle closed Evans Locke out over whiff. Possibly in time for the -- -- to get to camp on the 28 -- missiles flying and water between free agency a game going. Calls does expect to -- defenseman. -- two year deal today. No real surprise illustrate their good work is done for the summer barring some drastic trade or a little bit over the -- get that worked out. And then of course USA women taking on Japan. In the final of the World Cup on Sunday at 245 I believe I can't wait for that fired up stock block out. It appears. -- it's over. Economy look like it kind to think it's gonna happen. Yeah I mean I had so He still see that target date of the nineteenth. Actually 21 -- first in nineteen couldn't judge Brung -- -- with him. And then at the Minnesota and in others mean of course begs her rod. And with the and then be owners' meeting. Between -- -- -- fallacy that here's my question for you you know I saw this yesterday's -- has become the biggest -- Forbes comes out with a list of the fifteen richest. Franchises in the world and sports. All 32 NFL teams -- Of the Qantas franchises on the play at this -- Manchester United Liverpool Arsenal soccer teams. Eight of the twelve oracle teams why do we have a lockout why do owners feel they need more money or wait a minute. I think they knew all along you're never gonna miss eight games I think -- a power play. To get more. Has appeared choreographed. And they knew all along the real deadline was going to be able this late in the year they're gonna get all of -- scared to Tizzy -- -- so rich. That they knew they were not from the one thing they -- one isn't there is -- football I feel like I've been put -- I don't actually -- -- We do this He can't pay great years so make your mind that the team's crashing into her. And president -- ready. What I'm not -- look at any action that's the main impact that you're seeing now He operates teams are in the same boat they haven't had a practice at agony and but it's. Teams like the bunkers your quarterback problems they have teens like the niners to have a new coaching staff. And our parents haven't -- you thought things outside of your rookie cornerback yeah and then you had to keep teens like that that don't and are turning on their starters. And they aren't the -- Redskins specifically. There's still wind sixteen then you've got to have more coaching and defense as awful they're still range scheme and not having had time to prepare. As for their teams to get ready for that and he's engaged. Some good but yeah. I would imagine Dan Snyder was what won this thing on months ago for free agency rookies make your money. They're there have been a bad team for fifteen years and he's the supporters franchise plan. It's impossible. To lose money -- this team. They're very competent. And they wouldn't it have been -- 101000 -- our stadium anywhere it's in terms of money right so He wants to get the -- -- let me ask you this. Do you think their first priority. -- free agency will be. Off line to offensive line is that really a receiver to. -- -- story about the current situation. And I got -- baby let's go with those hears about the Pettitte again what that we got back but it goes back to the whole nation at. He isn't consistent if He was so high on him last year heading into the issue -- -- I don't see him. The second half of that you know last game for it and I just that this part is just mind boggling to me you know Don Nottingham -- -- ten million. If he's on the opening day roster -- And -- roster and so I just I don't actually -- situation. Did little -- receivers into game owns it talked about him. That would be good good -- but again that the top priority they need the defense of line anything -- chink in their plan and then. I don't know I mean I need to go they need an -- to -- his cell the -- that's -- -- everything. Laura off to -- a lot of holes you can argue they can use it for me receiver. I think to feel fairly good running at cornerback crashed my car that could use a core. -- -- a lot -- is going to be fought that if -- that important media this is it's gonna be crazy because you're going to be here names. Fell out there left to right it's gonna be wild in terms of how quickly guys could sign him is going to be foreign tourists fans. My question is is this team ready. Three or four players away from being a playoff type team I don't think -- I think this -- a rebuilding process. It's definitely every year we say to the building but they still. We'll get there one or two players away and it never works out but when you think about what the -- with the draft you know actually played it smart. You'd think that they're gonna place my of his free agency. But when -- racing on these reports now that they're going to be the biggest Benin you know you know most give each team if you like Kelly tire and then. You know you wonder. Wear their -- They will you know Shane Lindsay have this it is over the years he's got to do something I think I thought something like Joseph -- when He. That team -- 626 contend next year He went the civil. Coming -- alongside the playoffs so it's psych up taking eternity He they would turn that team around issue any damage at this one well now you having eighties practices. At least attempt to turner or similarities. But I would admit the players that you have on the team last year. Are been working out we -- worked iron to make him batter to create the system better to learn the system better so it's just I think they're still where they wore. But you January 1 concern a big names sell -- jerseys was. Excused. You know I'm here alone all my Redskins fans out there but you're gonna drink to Kuwait you're about to -- -- go to games. And it just things just gonna keep repeating I hope unless I'm wrong and they're really drafting an indication trading back -- -- younger. That's got to be the player I hope. If former Redskins fans. Friends. That they do it that way with some smart supplemental signings Sidney Rice and makes sense because he's a young receivers still. When it was fourth year. Sentinel to Braylon Edwards to make more sense to me because of the better. Well I think with the same as receivers and I go back to missing the same thing we've been asking us and we because -- Perez and but they had a receiver to compliment him on team. Six years now yeah -- -- -- bringing guys in that they're not the right guys and not the guys that you know -- and later -- whenever. And that we'll ever worked so wire we will do that again I mean we -- I mean obviously they need overhead -- -- yeah. And they -- -- -- again He had another system they have and maybe -- can pick up the system. You know letting your bag how can and let you pick it out but. Let's see her. It was you would finish this thing to do this at a post double talk about today on the short 5 o'clock we do you really day. Yes they have an -- of all the Al -- Also are all one on one with Danny O'Brien went through football round. Don't quote that Tom Watson. I had Angel went today yes -- Nice nice the old -- from Kansas City get it done Orioles won a couple of years ago he'd form Leahy did plenty of things are you lost the regalia. -- happened was that He didn't. For -- dad was at 59. So what -- that also I get those guys thoughts are on the caps looks like they're all season is over folks. Calls I was expect two years 2.5 seven million dollars like that. I like our team that has -- I'm not a proper help -- learn Miguel Ward's side they got bull cool in that. God brewer -- -- Chicago LeBron and so. On Paper appears to be deeper better team but Leslie. We all know the only thing that really matters is the playoffs and yet they have to get there what it looks like at least they got better. Yes and that's that you know we joke around it means it's now it's on these guys to do it means. -- veterans get their work and young they need a little bit more leadership and maybe they got it within these these older guy and the end -- You know majors that He feels the pressure to read these guys. It's going to be very -- -- that would lead to a seven it did did you stay here come trade deadline next year if part of it. But I I like what they did I would give during the hour I put this out of -- -- I'll feel different showed today. What -- He would give for the offseason I would say a strong B if not a B plus and minus I mean I think they've got a veteran -- called -- proven. Ward is a there's a playoff performer. Probably one what is still a couple of twins 52 with a black arm appears to go Halpern leadership a popular guy. Secondly some good moves and they get a little spots and -- -- ball handling -- badly. If things that trade for Riley and -- what they were able to get for him a guy again kind of what the playoffs. That it's as you want playoff series went but again you know I mean. That was -- -- never do that and train on draft night you know all that different lives that you know have even in the experts say that they're surprised how if he's able. It was not enough I talked to the other day He said He had like two days off to a good you know six months of George. Konerko will be similar relax. And get it going had a great offseason and come back in charge of that for you don't get real quickly last. -- World Cup USA went in Japan have beaten three times this year Bears offense. Hot of how excited are people running for this talk about it and care -- trying to care. I think I think they're trying to -- think that it'll be. -- think people watch that me it's on -- study coming out out a lot. But you know just the excitement that they brought two of tennis adding to tennis to soccer. And -- Q you know kind of embracing -- and US I mean I am. You know on the Olympics and cover them a lot. And I love international play attacking it's fun to watch him play you know different countries and things like that so hopefully that that's kind of where. And the people are just because having seen it counts on him and definitely brought it. -- thought I'll be watching a -- a final -- have you gone back standing on that with another big goal. Maybe I'll stick to what I have very good deal of assault and they knocked off Germany so on the other day it's sweet arm. Very very good team just -- couples reading about the way they played it technically sound so that I can give it away so I'll be favre's old -- or not why not get fired up for the ladies they're gonna get it done. And then come back to us at 5 o'clock for the show. He should have a good time you. What's really old and those of football so. And an excellent. I gamble more write that down. Hands are okay -- legs not so much 5 o'clock -- -- is fortunate to CSN Washington dot com. This is Leslie reader -- Carter will -- five. CSN Washington dot com.
