Today, without Ashley Hardin, David Jones sat down with Coach Mike Paynes with Excel Sports and talked about their recent trip to Yakima Washington with a youth group. For medical reasons David was restricted from flying, and ended up driving the 19 hours to and from the college. He shares that crazy experience.
Tanisha Morgan, a representative with Legal Shield, spoke a bit about what her business did, and they focused on the larger issue about the legal trouble that athletes get into, and the challenges that they all have with parents and peers of these children.
Next they talked about the Phoenix Mercury and Coach Sandy’s take on how the Mercury are playing. But David was particularly concerned with the referee Tom Mauer and the number of technical fouls called in the game from July 19th. David’s take is that he personally injects himself into each game and that is just a matter of when. David talked with Mike about the lack of balance between his technical foul calls in women’s games versus men’s games.
