Cool - I'll let you get at it. I'll send everything final down at the end of the week. I'll talk to Gordon now and then the team after practice.
---
Demi, can get me Gordon Goulet.
---
Gordon, you're having a hell of a year this year. Pro-bowl, looking like a sure fire All-Pro and the leader of the best defense in the league. This week we're going to let that wrist heal a bit this week but after that I'm hoping you can make a big move for us. I hate moving you out of the middle of the defense but we've got a big gap at strong safety and with the teams we're looking at facing come the playoffs more focused on moving the ball through the air we'd like you to fill it. Coach said he'll have you working with the DB's over the next two weeks to get ready. I know you're up for the challenge.

That's my count. I don't want to send any signals that we're not looking at that game as our destination.

Sounds good. Are you comfortable with the secondary as is. I'd love to keep Hickey off of IR in case he's capable of playing come late in the playoffs but don't want to leave us extra thin all over the place.

Ok - I'll talk to Gordon after we're done to let him know. Anything we can do this week with his training to help him out for that given he's not going to play this week with the injury? I'm thinking we'll let Milligan play in the Nickle this week against Tombstone and then spring this on San Antonio. Shift to the 4-2-5 to at least get Nutt on the field.

Then I think we need to do it. I'm more worried about our cover ability in the Nickle - Shaq and Joseph can step up at the second level and we have to hope our front four can get pressure. Do we want to go with a big bear front by putting Nutt at OLB and Marshall in on the line in base or do we want to put Jorge in and keep Gordo in the middle? Basically does Jorge have the tackling ability to be passable at strong safety, or maybe Mullins deep and have Jorge out wide?

Who's got the better cover skills, Milligan or Gordo? I'd trust our other line backers to clean up and we could bring some extra heat as well.

Cool - on to the Hickey scenario. What do you think of Milligan. He's probably our best option in the secondary but could we get fancy with how athletic our linebackers are if we wanted? Is there enough speed where we could run a 4-2-5 Nickle with one of them playing strong safety and then go to a bear front when we're in base.

Shelley sits for Izzy
Smith and Kendrick at Tailback
Ponder/Saunders/Lovell as our 3 WR's
Marshall in for Mayo on the line.

I also think we put Beck in for Gordon regardless given his injury status. We'll need to spend a bit of time looking at what we're going to do to cover for Hickey being out as well.

Well - that's news to me then as well. Good to see Punters are people too. In some respects though I wish I could go a season without punter drama - between Keyser wanting to be a place kicker and now this. That's my problem though - not yours. Thanks a bunch Larry.
---
Demi, I'd like to speak to Coach Saint now. If you could get let him now. Thanks.
---
Coach, my apologies for last week and the beginning of this week. My thanks for how you've handled this as well while I've been dealing with the Kardashian garbage. I've got a good handle on it now but there's some ... sensitivity around things right now. I'll want to speak to the team early on this week after a practice if that's ok. Beyond that though - I think we should talk about the next two weeks. I hate to look past Tombstone but at the end of the day I don't see San Antonio losing to Long Beach and that makes it moot. We go to San Antonio for the #1 seed.

With that in mind I was thinking of going with the #2's this week and playing fairly vanilla. Protect us against injury wherever possible and make sure our guys are 100%, or as close too, against San Antonio. What are your thoughts?

I understand - that'd be dirty pool. I'm going to do some more leg work on it this week. I can't promise you anything Jarrett because too much of this is out of my control but I'm going to do everything possible to make sure shit doesn't happen here. That I can say. We'll chat soon.
---
Demi, can you let Coach Saint know that I'm still caught up in this Kardashian bullshit and that we'll talk soon. Then can you get me Larry Wilkinson please?
---
Larry, I can't say enough how much I appreciate all the work you've done on this Kardashian file for us. I just want to cross reference some of our information against your observations. You said there's been a number of players that have been out with Miss Kardashian - I've confirmed; Shelley, Corbett, Pitts, Nutt, Barclay, Carrier, Barkley, Mullins - is there anyone else on your list? It may have been a low-key occurrence given I don't believe this name has been reported and I think TMZ has been all over this.

I know - I'm working on it Jarrett. It's been a crazy couple of weeks with all this stuff going on but I've been proud of how you and the rest of the team have handled your business while still pumping your Q-Score's up. Is there anything else you can add on this Kardashian saga - I know there's been a ton of smoke and mirrors involved but anything might be something at this point.

1. Talk about this weeks performance from your team.
We took care of business. It was a complete team effort in all three phases of the game. We’ve set ourselves up so that we control our destiny going forward in so far as the division and the conference.

2. Talk about your team's news this week.
It’s been a recurring theme over the past couple of weeks. My answer does not change over time; our players are entitled to have a personal life. They are football players, yes, but first and foremost they are human beings and are entitled to enjoy their time away from the gridiron the same as everyone else does. Sure, there are rules that we hold everyone accountable too; that their activities do not jeopardize their ability to perform on the field and that they meet the acceptable standards of conduct we expect out of a contributing member of society. Beyond that they are free to do as they please.

3. Talk about at least two other news stories of interest.
I think Carmine Barone’s comments in Milwaukee carry truth to it – that’s a team that is growing together and has a number of exciting young players. The other thing I think of note, really amongst a multitude of the games this week, was veteran players stepping up to keep their teams playoff hopes alive. We’re all too familiar with Curt Robles but Gio Hill had a hell of a game too.

4. What do you have to do to win the game this week?
Play Scorpion’s football.

I'm just saying there's so much bravado around this scenario. People are looking at making a buck and getting the publicity and there name out there by being seen with this Kardashian girl. You told me you were sure it wasn't yours and I originally left it at that but thinking back I maybe should've pressed a bit more. How can you be sure it's not yours?

General Manager's Office / Re: TEAM : LAS VEGAS SCORPIONS
« on: September 15, 2018, 11:32:48 PM »
Well - that's a good thing in this scenario. Honestly, I know it's a little weird having this discussion with another dude but don't sweat it. You left after you freshman year of University and have been super focused on making it big in the pro's. I'm not going to do the wait until marriage bullshit but it comes eventually. There's a ton of talk out there dude, in the locker room, on the internet about players and I'm telling you a lot of it's bullshit. It's a lot easier to talk the talk in this scenario than walk the walk. Take care David - putting in the good work and results will come on and off the field.
---
Can you get Shaq back in here please.
---
Shaq, I know we had a quick talk about you being worried this Kardashian kid is yours. When you're saying your confident it's not your's - you weren't bullshitting me were you? Call it a gut feeling but as I've gone through this week and I've been thinking about this team and how cohesive we are as a unit that I don't feel like that kid could physically be yours. Is that the case?

Understood. I get the feeling. The way we're rolling on the field we're looking like we've got a chance to be the kings of Sin City and you know that's going to be the good life from the top of the throne. Thanks for coming to see me Steph.
---
David Nutt please Demi.
---
David, wanted to see how you're adapting to life in the pro's. I've heard good things coming up from the practice field and you're taking advantage of opportunities on the field. I know earlier this year there was the incident and you wanted to handle it yourself and I've not heard anything since so I want to commend you for that. With this entire Kardashian deal on the pregnancy front I hadn't heard from you and so I wanted to touch base. I'm not sure if you've seen her or what not since that incident but if there's a chance your the father I wanted to let you know we can provide support or I can back right off again if you want to continue to handle your business, or good for you and your bank account - you're not the father.

Steph, really good showing last week in Tulsa. We threw a bit more and you handled it with aplomb. Three weeks left and we're on a roll in no small part to what you guys are doing on offense. I'm hoping this Kardashian thing doesn't distract from that and so I wanted to get your take on it? I don't want this pregnancy thing to become blown out of proportion. You good on that front? I know you're a smart dude.

Veritable Pied Piper of Hamelin. Far be it from me to pry into your personal life but this Kardashian girl's pregnancy, between you and me, what are the odds the kids yours? From what I've gathered there could be any number of potential baby daddies but I also wonder whether there's some hype play here and some people are getting lumped in having been spotted out with her but never having slept with her or at least not hitting it raw.

Joseph, how's it going. You've had an awesome year on the other boundary from Shane. I think we got a really good shot this year and you're a big part of that as long as we can keep our focus. This entire Kardashian drama - I heard that there's some worry in the locker room about what it all means and I'm trying to do my best to get to the bottom of this to try and get everyone's mind at ease. What's your thoughts on the matter?

Understood. That's locker room talk but I'm also cognizant of the fact that there's some bravado involved in conversations like that. I know in my personal experience that there's been times that I may have exaggerated a little bit in that regard, pulled a "Michael Lane" as it were. Any chance that's applicable here?

John Pitts please Demi.

John, it's been an awesome season so far and you're a big part of that. I sleep better at night knowing we've got you on the outside lighting corners up in the passing game. What's your take on this Kardashian affair? I know there's worry in the locker room about who's the father of her kid.

Shaq, wanted to touch base on this Kardashian melo-drama. It's brought a lot of attention to the team but I'm worried about you guys and this baby drama stuff. Talk to me? What's your thoughts on it? I know there's concern in the locker room.

If you could let Coach Saint know that I'm handling this to make sure we're focused on Long Beach and I'll leave the other preparations for him that'd be great. Let the agents/players know I'm working on it as well and that'll I have an update soon that'd be amazing. Then if you could get me Larry Wilkinson we can get to work.

1. Who was your star player this week? Who disappointed?
“Sugar” Shane Barkley had a helluva week. He’s balled out all season as one of the leaders on our defense and that entire unit came to play this week. I hate to bail on a question but it’s really difficult with a total team effort like that to see a disappointment but there really wasn’t, we saw our reserves contribute late and our starters really dominate. The kicking game was solid. That’s the type of effort we need to wrap this division up.

2. How would you evaluate your team over the last few weeks?
We’ve played great ball all-season. We’re hit peak performance and really adapted to the schemes our coaching staff has implemented. I want to give a shout to Stephen Shelley who has really taken a leap forward over the past six weeks. He’s putting in a lot of extra effort with the coaching staff and that’s been rewarded on the field.

3. With three games remaining, what is the plan to end the season on a high note?
Al Davis said it best, just win baby!

4. What do you have to do to win the game this week?
I don’t think we’ll have any grand speeches like GM Idiot Face over in Cleveland. For as much as he’s talked about his owner making a spectacle of things …. Anyways, we’re going to the LBC; we know what that team is about and what we’ve got too do. We know we probably need to win out to get that bye week and I think that’s what we’re looking at. Stay healthy, continue to execute, and we’ll be fine.
