If you've seen the footage -- you listen to -- being interviewed I've come to one conclusion.
Every once in while you see an Olympian come through -- you think they're gonna be around for awhile Dorothy Campbell for example.
Bruce Jenner up until recently had broken through now -- a joke but people know -- -- that about him he's going to be sustainable.
As I look at people like Dwight stones he's going to be sustainable and he was for quite for quite a few years.

Volley -- all these bodies women's basketball.
These -- great teams unbelievable athletes but they're not selling around athletes.
They -- allowing this to be a shot in the -- a single moment.
And they have to go do something else you glut -- sell these people tell us about those stories make sure there.
On all the news channels and doing the -- did and they build up their success because let's think about it.
It is because of basketball team is the best what they do it doesn't mean they deserve all the limelight and just because you have Michael Phelps and his greatest he is -- and he deserves of the limelight.
Sell your athletes because they deserve it they deserve more than just a moment in the sun.

Everybody else on that on that squad that's made a name for themselves because they almost won the World Cup.
And there are about two in the Olympics and -- -- They going do the shows they smile at the camera.
They make themselves available they answer the questions -- a complete way they become darlings of the media to -- their jobs easier.
The USA women's soccer team get -- I don't know a single person on the women's basketball team.
And I blame the bodies older are supposed to do is go out and play that he got to go sell the sport finally even the -- United States has a problem the New York Jets.
They have a quarterback derby and a quarterback controversy like nothing we haven't seen.
You came at a camp looking at that controversy Rex Ryan ensuring that controversy and India the backup quarterback -- -- popular.
-- the starting quarterback he's not better but he's more popular which means those two worlds will clash even Mark Sanchez says I watch television I feel bad.
Because everybody -- only talking about the jets with a talking about the Broncos with.
Peyton -- There's so many of the -- so many of the stories and -- -- neither one of those teams -- and a in the suitable -- right that we weeping about I think keeping score at foxnews.com.
