Donald Trump was elected President last night, and Colin says it all boils down to authenticity and relatability to regular Americans, and distrust of the media and political class. Last night was a loud rejection of the out of touch. Blue team out, red team in. Let’s work together.“The blue team’s out, the red team’s in, because they were more relatable in the suburbs and rural America. Is Trump a concern? I think our republic is built to withstand Trump. What our republic is not built to withstand is a media that the American citizens don’t trust. And oh, boy, you do not. That was middle finger to the American media. To the American establishment. To the political system.”Michael Jordan may be considered the best basketball player ever, but Colin thinks LeBron is the most complete player ever. He scores, passes, rebounds, unites teammates, and there has never been another player with his skill set. Including MJ.“Most of you will not consider him the best player, but he’s easily the most complete.”The latest College Football Playoff rankings were released last night, and Colin thinks the rankings are far too driven by agendas and biases. Vegas also releases its own rankings, which are based on unbiased analysis, not alliances and politics. The best example of the discrepancy in the rankings is LSU, which is ranked 24th in the CFP poll and 9th in the Vegas poll. LSU has close losses to Auburn, Wisconsin and Alabama, and can play with anyone. Colin trusts Vegas, not the committee.“Be authentic. Be authentic. Be trustable. Committee out, Vegas in.”Guests:Eric Mangini – Former NFL head coach joins the show to discuss his time with Jim Harbaugh, why his enthusiasm is absolutely sincere, why playing Jared Goff if he hasn’t earned it could create a locker room rift, and why NFL teams should vote “yes” on Proposition F, and use the fade pattern.Joel Klatt – FS1 College Football Analyst is in-studio to defend Washington being ranked #4 in the latest CFP poll, why the playoff committee is a sham, why winning should matter in the process, and his Almost Upset Pick of the Week, which may or may not happen.Chris Broussard – FS1 NBA Insider is in-studio to discuss Colin’s contention that LeBron is the most complete player ever, if Klay Thompson is the odd man out in Golden State, and the reaction to the result of the presidential election in the NBA.Christian Pulisic – Borussia Dortmund and U.S. Soccer midfielder joins the show to look ahead to the USMNT showdown with Mexico in Columbus, Ohio, how he deals with the expectations being heaped on him as the future of U.S. soccer, and whether the MLS will be viewed as an elite professional league.

A leading Indian airline is reportedly taking a new approach to securing highly coveted landing spots at west London hub Heathrow.Jet Airways has been alerted to the holding of 11 per cent of Heathrow landing slots by British Midland (BMI) and is reportedly seeking a takeover of the airline in order to cement its London footing.Jet Airways, the largest domestic airline in India, was claimed by the Sunday Telegraph to have approached BMI chairman Sir Michale Bishop with a view to buying out his 51 per cent stake in the firm.An aviation consultant told the Times of India: “Sir Michael Bishop owns 51 per cent stake in UK carrier British Midland (BMI). BMI has control over 11 per cent slots in Heathrow and Jet Airways has approached Sir Bishop for controlling stakes in the carrier. In some ways, it’s a repetition of the Air Sahara buyout. We are looking at gaining slots in major airports during peak hours by buying stakes in airlines that are rich in this aspect.”Competition for a BMI buyout could be high, with Heathrow transatlantic flyers BA and Virgin Atlantic already voicing an interest, alongside Lufthansa – already nearly a 30 per cent stake-holder in the firm.ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map
