There's nobody better to talk to. Then again and is now one of orders here intercom Charlotte demo called WBT. Was Pat McCrory show him a goat Thompson on 9 o'clock each morning. And we had a chance to talk to former governor and mayor about the whole political game that would go on old were you don't possible approval. All's gambling here sports gambling and stayed North Carolina. Pat what's going on how you doing. Don't sign up they would going to be going on a volley or Allah oh what a lot of being hired the fight for Campbell. A millions of dollars big money is gonna be spent try to influence by a politician. And within that influencers to be a power grabs between gambling groups between its. Sports leagues. And even between state or local government and the federal government as well lap data that's because the Supreme Court ruling. Allow congress to step beer. And make rules and regulations for the state. So that's something that's been leapt out at each other divisions. Interstate okay had. How do you seal it and and a general sense about the you know ceilings alms. The state politicians on this like I've got a lot of people. Our governor that are there and hit me up and say and I'll match in our stay word the Bible Belt this is so our state would never do well you know we do have a lottery you know I mean like. How do you seal is this something you feel like ultimately would get approval. Yes it is but if well one can now be regulated that they'll ever going to be. Is gonna let a high school's sports college sports just professional sports. But the big issues is gonna get the money. And how the money in it could be divided so. Who's gonna get a cut of the action will the leaks get a cavity action will be universities get a cavity actually go to school teacher in the kind of reaction. It'll all be about the body of the money and the regular regulations regarding. Who gets the money so it's a good bit of power grab it's going to be a money grab. Which is side not unusual right. In this horrible popular songs Kramer. Not unusual I you wanna sing you we will give each lawyer now odds could. You have to meet their. Oh lord that would be a video little signs you shoot a video later today here in the office. Our game that we played the Susan slider Soriano in housing units a song we played or I'm glad you're Booker Rupert Parker brought. Underdog. I thought I had a moment a WBT recall of the season cider that's famous saying it was. That's the kind of thing I'm doing all the time around here there's no there's no doubt I shared shared that with you. I'm not. Think about the ramifications of this year not just talk about that economic gain she could be pretty not every. Pitch he can't throw every basket. Will you have pretty inside the arena and then you could get into corruption. I mean if there's that much money being put it to you know clear shall be approach to throw games so there's big money into it is just. Is not yet but wonder corruption will come also have a corruption we probably don't know. Well sixty cynic us debt that is come up obviously in our back and forth listeners and stuff. And I heard a lot of C you know guys out and say gets a handicap pursue a SARS like that that a lot of them say. Because you would have more regulation of the gambling it would be controlled by the government. They you would be any debt that that might scare Ross the corruption that might lessen the possible corruption rather well when there's a black market type saying. Do you disagree with that. I may what I disagree because every state could have different rules and regulations some states could have very lax regulations. Other states could have very strict regulations. And where you have blacks are regulations. Will be worth their possible corruption and a man who's going to be hired their group received the regulations and baby enforcers and worse that funny it up. I mean you've got to have people all of the money. And there's gonna do that the NCAA are you kidding me. Yeah. Now. We're definitely not saying that. Do you let me ask you let me ask you question this way you talk about you know you got to figure out where does the money go when you mention sports leagues.

Hagerty Pete know what it is is a money Brett. Everyone's gonna when it got to the action and one group of politicians are gonna say well let's do it to give money to teachers and other group is gonna say let's do it to get under your words. And NFL in the NBA are gonna give no we get the money because you're pretty are saying yeah literature or. It's going to be a money grab it's all about money. I hate to break the news team sport away. Pleaded no. Unbelievable we've heard today from the laboratory unbelievable. Thumb what is your okay. By the way politicians won't get big they're patient.
