Ireland Contracting Sports Call: March 14, 2019 (Pt. 2)

WE CONTINUE LIVE RIGHT HERE ON PITTSBURGH CW , ONE OTHER BASKETBALL NOTE AND CONGRATS, THEY HAVE BEEN OUTSTANDING, THE MEN'S AND WOMEN'S BASKETBALL TEAM

THIS WEEKEND, MEN'S WILL HOST THREE DAYS OF THEIR TOURNAMENT ALL COMBINED THEY ARE 55-5, ONE OF THE BEST RECORDS COMBINED MEN AND WOMEN'S TEAMS THE WOMEN'S TEAM OBVIOUSLY ONE THE TITLE, THE MEN'S TEAM IS RANKED THERE WAS ONE POINT, THE WOMEN'S TEAM WAS NUMBER ONE IN THE COUNTRY WE HAD TOM McCONNELL AND LOMBARDI

TWO GREAT COACHES OUT THERE AND THEY HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB THEY WILL BE IN ACTION THIS WEEKEND SO CHECK THEM OUT CHRIS ISAAK SAID, BOB, SOME OF THESE RUMORS HAVE JUSTIN HOUSTON HE WANTS A LOT OF MONEY AND THEY BOUGHT BOB DUPREE IF THEY HAD GOTTEN RID OF BOB, I THINK THAT COULD'VE BEEN A POSSIBILITY PAUL BUT, NO, WHERE DO THEY HAVE THAT KIND OF MONEY

THERE IS NO QUESTION ABOUT IT, I DON'T SEE WHERE THEY WOULD HAVE THE MONEY TO DO THAT AND HE IS GOING TO GET A LOT OF MONEY THEY ARE BETTING AGAINST FIVE OR SIX OTHER TEAMS, I DON'T SEE HOW THEY HAVE ANY CHMAYBE YOU KNOW, THEY ARE ABLE TO STRUCTURE THE DEAL, OBVIOUSLY THE BIGGEST QUESTION, HOW MUCH IS BEN ROETHLISBERGER GOING TO GET TOMORROW? IT SOUNDS LIKE THEY HAVE SAID, IT HAS BEEN BUILDING UP TOWARD FRIDAY WE WILL SEE AND WE HAVE A LOT OF PEOPLE ON THE LINES LET'S GO TO LINE 1, ROBERT IN FORT WORTH

ARE YOUR OPINIONS ON THE SIGNING OF STEVE NELSON AND DANTE AND HOW WILL THEY CONTRIBUTE TO THE STEELERS? WILL DANTE IS ONLY 25 YEARS OLD WHICH I THINK IS GREAT HE IS STILL A YOUNG RECEIVER HE WILL HELP JAMES WASHINGTON THEY WILL DRAFT SOMEONE AND THEY HAVE OTHER OPTIONS IT WILL NOT BE AS TALENTED AT THE TOP AND BECAUSE IT CAN'T BE

PAUL I THINK, HE IS THE GUY WHO CAN COME IN HERE AND FEEL PRETTY COMFORTABLE I THINK BEN ROETHLISBERGER FEELS HE DOESN'T HAVE TO THROW TO ANTONIO BROWN ANYMORE THE MAC AND THE OTHER THING IS THEY HAVE VANCE McDONALD THEY HAVE ENOUGH WEAPONS LIKE I HAVE SAID SEVERAL TIMES, TAKE THE STEELERS OFFENSIVE LINE , QUARTERBACK, THE WEAPONS ARE THE RECEIVERS, AND COMPARE THEM TO ALL THE OTHER TEAMS IN THE AFC

YOU CAN'T TELL ME THERE ARE MORE THAN 3-4 TEAMS THAT YOU WOULD RATHER HAVE EVEN WITH OUT BROWN IF YOU LOOK AT THE RAIDERS, THE OFFENSIVE LINE IS HORRENDOUS, THAT GUY GETS KILLED ALL THE TIME AND HE WILL BE SCRAMBLING A LOT I AGREE

LINE 3, JOE, WELCOME TO THE SPORTS CALL THANK YOU FOR TAKING MY CALL I CALLED IT A WHILE BACK, I BELIEVE THAT ANTONIO BROWN AND LEYVA ON BELL, WE KNOW BROWN'S HISTORY, BELL TURNED DOWN THE MONEY I THINK ONE OF THE PROBLEMS BEING OVERLOOKED, MAYBE MIKE LOST SOME CONTROL ON THAT TEAM MAYBE HE SHOULD'VE PUT THINGS IN THEIR PLACE A LONG TIME BEFORE THINGS GOT OUT OF CONTROL

I THINK HE CERTAINLY ENABLED BEHAVIOR, ESPECIALLY FOR BROWN BELL DIDN'T BOTHER ME AS MUCH BECAUSE HE WAS MAKING WHAT HE THOUGHT WAS A POWER PLAY BROWN WAS THE NUMBER ONE AND TODAY I SAW THE JESSE JAMES WAS INTERVIEWED IN DETROIT QUITE A LOT MORE MONEY THAN ANYONE WOULD HAVE GIVEN THEM HE SAID HE FELT THEY HAD TO DO IT

GIVEN HOW THINGS HAD GOTTEN OUT OF CONTROL WITH ANTONIO BROWN OF COURSE THEY HAD TO DO IT THERE IS NO WAY HE COULD COME BACK WE TALKED ABOUT THIS PROBABLY FROM THE TIME HE QUIT ON THE TEAM, THERE IS NO WAY YOU GET A GUY LIKE THAT BACK AND JESSE JAMES, GOD BLESS HIM, HE GOT A LOT OF MONEY BUT, THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE TRYING TO SPIN IT, THAT HE IS PROOF, HE IS A HOMETOWN BOY TRYING TO FLEE

MONEY THE LIONS GAVE HIM AN OBSCENE AMOUNT OF MONEY MORE POWER TO HIM, HE GOT IT THE STEELERS WERE NEVER GOING TO PAY HIM ANYTHING CLOSE KIMBERLY, WELCOME TO THE IRELAND CONTRACTING SPORTS CALL

MY QUESTION IS, WHAT HAPPENED WITH BELL, AND ANTONIO BROWN, IS THAT SOMETHING THAT'S PREVALENT IN ALL OF THE NFL IT SEEMS SO ODD THAT THEY WOULD NOT WANT TO PLAY FOR THE STEELERS WIN THEY ARE SUCH A RESPECTED FRANCHISE I THINK BELL, I WILL START WITH HIS CASE, IF HE HAD JUST TAKEN THE OFFER THEY WOULD'VE MADE THE PLAYOFFS I DON'T KNOW, MOTIVATION IS MONEY, IT'S ALWAYS MONEY MONEY, EGO AND THAT'S IT

HE WILL SACRIFICE HIS OWN PERSONAL REPUTATION, DIGNITY, IT DOESN'T MATTER FOR HIM IT IS PRETTY CLEAR CONSIDERING THE TWO OF THEM SIGNED WITH, OR ENDED UP WITH TWO OF THE WORST TEAMS IT TELLS YOU WHERE WINNING IS ON THE PRIORITY LIST IT WAS 100% MONEY ALL OF THIS STUFF ABOUT THEM FLEEING, TRYING TO GET OUT OF THE CULTURE, IF THE STEELERS WOULD HAVE GIVEN ANTONIO BROWN WHAT HE WANTED MONEYWISE, WE WOULDN'T HAVE THIS CONVERSATION AND THE SAME THING WITH BELL

IF THEY HAD GIVEN HIM THE GUARANTEED MONEY, WE WOULDN'T BE TALKING ABOUT THIS BUT THE FUNNIEST THING ABOUT IT, THE GUARANTEE IS PART OF THE STEELERS CONTRACT WITH THE ROLLING GUARANTEES NOT FULLY GUARANTEED BUT THE STEELERS HONOR CONTRACTS THE BOTTOM LINE IS IT WAS LIKE 40 $34 MILLION SO HE TOOK A DEAL THAT HE WILL ONLY MAKE $26 MILLION, SO HE TOOK WHAT, $8 MILLION LESS

THE WAY THAT IT IS STRUCTURED THE JETS COULD COME AFTER TWO YEARS AND THEY MIGHT BECAUSE THE STEELERS ARE ONE OF THE BEST TEAMS IN TERMS OF HONORING THE PERCENTAGE OF CONTRACTS AND THE JETS ARE ONE OF THE WORST THE MAC I NEVER UNDERSTOOD THAT CLAIM LOOK AT BUD DUPREE FOR EXAMPLE, YOUR PRIMARY EXAMPLE THAT THEY DIDN'T WANT TO GIVE UP EVEN JARVIS JONES, THEY WAITED AND WAITED

BELL WOULD HAVE HAD TO COMPLETELY FALL APART FOR THEM TO DO ANYTHING MAYBE NOT ALL $70 MILLION I AM SAYING, EVEN IF HE WAS THERE FOR YEARS, MOST OF THE MONEY WAS IN THE FIRST FOUR YEARS HE WOULD HAVE MADE 60 WHICH IS, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? MORE THAN HE WILL MAKE WITH THE JETS JIM, WHAT'S UP JIM

HI PAUL, HOW ARE YOU I'M NOT GOING TO MISS BELL AND THEM BROUGHT US TO THE CHAMPIONSHIP THEY DIDN'T THAT IS THE ONE THING ABOUT BOTH OF THEM WINNING WAS NOT ALL OF THAT PREVALENT IN THE POSTSEASON

LET'S GO TO LINE 5 TIM IS NOT PAYING ATTENTION AND WE ARE DUE FOR A BREAK HOW MANY TEAMS FROM THE ACC DO YOU GUYS THINK WILL GET TO THE FINAL FOUR? THAT IS A TOUGH ONE BECAUSE THERE ARE SOME VERY TALENTED TEAMS IN THE ACC 2 YOU SAID 2, I SAY 1 BECAUSE DUKE, I DON'T THINK IT IS A GIVEN

EVEN THOUGH THE ACC WILL PROBABLY HAVE EIGHT TEAMS? I THINK SO I LIKE VIRGINIA A LOT THEY NEVER WIN IN THE TOURNAMENT BUT THIS YEAR THEY CAN THEY CAN SCORE, THEY WON TONIGHT BY 20

THEY LOST LAST YEAR THEY WILL GET TO THE FINAL FOUR I WILL SAY DUKE AND VIRGINIA I THINK YOU AND SEE WILL BE THE BEST OF THEM ALL BACK WITH MORE CALLS RIGHT AFTER THIS
