Ireland Contracting Nightly Sports Call: August 7, 2019 (Pt. 3)


WELCOME BACK TO THE NIGHTLY SPORTS CAR. LET’S GO OUT TO AL IN BETHEL PARK. WHAT’S UP, AL? A, RICH. HOW YOU DOING. THAT’S FOR CALLING. GINA GOT A SERIOUS QUESTION FOR YOU. NO MORE PLAYING AROUND. THE POWER OF THE PRESS IS VERY IMPORTANT. THEY CAN DO INVESTIGATIONS, THEY CAN CALL SOURCES. THEY CAN GET INSIDE WERE A REGULAR FAN CAN GO. WHY CAN’T THE PRESS LAUNCH AN INVESTIGATION INTO BOB NUTTY? I’M TALKING ABOUT EMBEZZLEMENT. LIKE HE’S TAKING THAT REVENUE- SHARING MONEY AND PUTTING IT INTO HIS OWN POCKET. TO ME, THIS IS NOT A COINCIDENCE WITH THERE GETTING THAT MONEY FROM THE BIG MARKET TEAMS. AND ALL OF A SUDDEN IT’S NOT GOING INTO BASEBALL TEAM. YOUR VETERAN, AWARD-WINNING WRITER. DOES IT SEEM STRANGE TO ME, YOU WOULD AGREE, THAT THIS MONEY IS NOT GOING INTO BASEBALL. DON’T YOU THINK THE PRESS COULD LAUNCH AN INVESTIGATION LIKE THEY DO WITH STEROIDS AND EVERYTHING ELSE? WELL, YOU KNOW, THE MEDIA HAS LOOKED INTO THIS TO VARYING DEGREES OVER THE YEARS. AND SO HAS THE UNION. AND NO ONE HAS BEEN REALLY SUCCESSFUL AT, WELL, NO ONE HAS BEEN ABLE TO TURN UP ANY EVIDENCE THAT BOB NUTTING HAS USED PIRATE FUNDS TO BUY ANYTHING OF HIS OWN HOLDINGS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT. YOU KNOW, THERE IS NO SALARY CAP IN BASEBALL. THERE IS NO SALARY FLOOR. I THINK, I APPRECIATE YOUR QUESTION. A POINT WELL TAKEN. ALL I CAN TELL YOU IS IT’S BEEN UNDERTAKEN OVER THE YEARS AND HAS NOT REALLY TURNED UP WHAT I THINK YOU’RE LOOKING FOR. YEAH. BOB NUTTING IS GOING TO BE THE OWNER HERE UNTIL, I DON’T KNOW, UNTIL WHAT HAPPENS. BUT HE’S GOING TO BE THE OWNER AND — HE’S GOING TO PASS IT DOWN TO HIS KIDS. YOU’RE STUCK WITH HIM AS THE OWNER. GO TO JAY IN PITTSBURGH. WHAT’S UP, JAY? HOW YOU DOING, MAN? THANKS FOR CALLING. TWO QUICK QUESTIONS. ONE IS, WHO DECIDES TO PUT THE PIRATES ON NATIONAL TV? AND THE SECOND ONE IS, STILL A QUESTION. THEY NEVER PLAYED BEEN IN THESE EARLY PRESEASON GAMES, BUT TOM BRADY PLAYED IN THESE GAMES.
