Listen now

Sevan Matossian (00:00):

Fixed. My hair’s all fucked up. Look at it. Bam. We’re live Well. Good morning.

Will Branstetter (00:05):

Good morning,

Sevan Matossian (00:07):

Susie. Good morning. Good morning. I think I got the phone hooked up, right? Uh, wow, we’re doing it. Incredible Bruce. Good morning, Kyle GM. Okay. Oh yeah. Good morning dreamer. Good morning, Brian G no Friday show. You’ve had that up there for a long time. I bet you’re not even in the chat anymore. Casual center. Good morning, Kevin Smith. Good morning. I saw a really nice, uh, compliment in the YouTube comments.

Sevan Matossian (00:36):

I saw another comment by the way, in the YouTube comments. It said, uh, um, that the show that we did with, uh, Brian for end and chase and Luke Parker was super petty and boring. And I agree, I couldn’t, I couldn’t agree. More 10 minutes into that show. I thought, wow, this is petty. Like I like, I, I love throwing rocks at cars, but in, in watching them bounce off and shit like that, or, you know, just, you know, breaking beer bottles. But that, that was pointless. We need to give like HQ, like a week or two. I, I totally agree that, oh, other people love the show shows off the hook. The numbers are crazy. Most of the comments are like, fuck yeah, you guys kill it. Blah, blah, blah. I thought it was petty. I

Will Branstetter (01:10):

Mo mentality.

Sevan Matossian (01:12):

Yeah.

Mattew Ouza (01:15):

Group fake took over.

Sevan Matossian (01:17):

I, um, I called, uh, I think Matt right afterwards. And I was like, oh, that was so fucking petty. Welcome, Ethan. Thank you. Casual sender for welcoming in Mr. Ethan. That was a good radio voice right there. Well, Mac, thank you.

Mattew Ouza (01:35):

Little

Mattew Ouza (01:35):

Head pieces. Screw

Sevan Matossian (01:36):

Up. My speaking of petty. Uh, I wanna talk to you guys about something that I saw in the morning, chalk up. I saw it. Well, I actually saw someone sent me a screenshot on, um, Instagram. There’s a guy who works over there. I, I had never heard of his name before. I, I have never heard of his name even in the CrossFit community. And I dug around a little bit and he, he looks like a long distance runner or something. Peter blacken check blacken. Blanken hold on. I’m ill prepared. Gotta get it right where my notes or my notes. Uh, Peter I’m. Oh, blender has ITPA blender. Has it number 61. Um, he, uh, I’m at first I was like, oh, he probably just writes this shit, cuz he writes for free. Um, and so the truth doesn’t matter. He just like throws shit out there and just writes whatever he wants. This article is different than the Instagram post. I couldn’t, I couldn’t find, uh, it’s almost like two separate people wrote it. The facts just seem different. Um, uh, and, and I’ll get into the details. I don’t wanna leave it ambiguous, but this guy, Patrick Lenner has it. I don’t know if he’s a CrossFitter he seems like I, I, from the little digging around, I I’ve done, it seems like he’s like the Rosa, what Rosa is to CrossFit.

Mattew Ouza (02:46):

Mm

Sevan Matossian (02:48):

He is too the morning chalk up like, like he’s like LA Franco who knows even less and is even more,

Will Branstetter (02:54):

I don’t the guy in line for the next promotion.

Sevan Matossian (02:57):

I guess. I it’s just weird this guy’s but um, it’s so it’s so it’s such a bad article and I just wanna, oh, here we go. So this is the morning chocolate post. It says after Eric Rose a bot CrossFit, along with Berkshire partners in July, 2020, one of the first things launched under his reign was affiliate rep not even true, like, like not even close to true, not, not even like that program. Just so you know, was started in 2016 first, um, under, under in my department under me

Sevan Matossian (03:30):

And run by Tyson Adrey and Matt Bishop, who I believe are both still at CrossFit HQ. They can verify that. That was an idea that, that Dave had Dave Castro had to, so each of don’t come had their own, uh, um, Instagram accounts and it was pushed back upon huge. It was, wasn’t a popular idea at all at HQ. And we started in 2016 and Tyson and, uh, and you could ask any of the, the, the, the country reps or liaisons or whatever they’ve changed the name to now. But, um, this article is tantamount. What this guy is saying is, is that CRO that Eric Rosa started, it would be like, if we published an article and be like, oh my God, Eric Rosa started CrossFit home office. Wouldn’t in incredible methodology. And we never, and we never mentioned the fact that all he did was change the name of CrossFit HQ. So we told, we told the world that Eric Rose founded, no, this shit was founded and fucking, when it, Greg Glassman was a kid, when he is fucking 15, he started putting this shit together. It’s so bad. So like, like save your, why are you just sitting there writing lies? I said a few weeks ago and I got push back from Suza and, uh, and a couple other people saying that, that I would, I would not affiliate. I would, I would, or would not affiliate. I would, I, I would not subscribe to that, that, that, that, that, um, um, uh, rag, whatever you call morning chalk up is just, um, uh, I, I think we’ve surpassed them in, in just character and validity by like, by far well truth.

Mattew Ouza (04:56):

That’s for sure.

Sevan Matossian (04:58):

So, so I, I obviously don’t like it for the reasons that like that program was started under my department, by Dave Castro. Then in 2018, I’ll tell you a little bit more of the story. I, so in 2018, um, uh, we were in a big meeting. It was probably one of the biggest, uh, um, leadership meetings we ever had at HQ. There were probably like 20 people in it. And the executives in that meeting, like the big dogs in that meeting were Greg Glassman, me Bruce Edwards, and Nicole Kell, Carol Ben, ER, Dave Castro, Marshall Brennan, as the general counsel, I think he’s still at CrossFit HQ,

Sevan Matossian (05:37):

Kathy Glassman, head of affiliates, and then a variety of other people. And there were two people in that meeting who did not work at CrossFit HQ, which was really weird. It was the soon to be CEO who was just completely destroyed the con company. He, he, one day, I mean, one day I gotta tell that whole story. It’s like five hours long, but I’ll tell you, this was a dear friend of mine. And then he was brought on board and completely turned into just a, just a horrible douche and his mistress. So this guy’s married and he has his mistres, who’s married in the meeting and they’re in the meeting. And in that meeting at HQ, Dave Castro says to the, to all 20 people in there and all the top executives at HQ. And I apologize, and I mentioned Bruce, he was the operations officer. And, uh, I didn’t probably mention, uh, Matt Howorth was in that meeting. I’m guessing I don’t remember seeing him there, but I’m guessing he’s the CFO.

Sevan Matossian (06:28):

And, um, he thank you. And he, uh, uh, um, Dave, Dave said, oh, and Jimmy Letford was in there. And he and Dave said in that meeting, Hey, I think we should all get raises based. This is in 2018, we should all get raises based on performance. So set us a carrot out there in the field, typical mill guy, right. He wants you to work hard and get rewarded for your hard work. Mm fucking absurd and sounds racist, definitely racist and sexist. Um, because we know that men are stronger than women. And, um, so, and then he also proposes an affiliate liaison program to sort of expand this thing that we have, where there’s just, uh, um, uh, Instagram accounts that are being run by people out in the countries. And I think some of the people out there who ran him, I’m not sure for, but like Dave Chay, I think he still works for the company. And like, I think he ran the Instagram account in France. I’m trying to remember who the guy in Germany who ran it. He’s a really cool cat, a really cool cat. I had him on the podcast before there’s video footage of him like live video footage of him fighting the Taliban in a real gun fight. It’s gnarly

Mattew Ouza (07:35):

For sure. Gonna find that.

Sevan Matossian (07:37):

Do you hear that noise? It’s

Mattew Ouza (07:38):

The trash that’s average

Sevan Matossian (07:39):

Check. Oh, so, so in this meeting, Dave proposes that in, in, in Greg’s furious, he doesn’t want, he doesn’t want, um, bonuses handed out based on Mary. He doesn’t wanna do bonuses at all. And he doesn’t wanna do this affiliate liaison program. And there’s a war in this meeting. This is in 2018. It was crazy. Yeah. I probably was racist. No, Greg, Greg doesn’t have a racist bone in his body. I wish I could say was racist towards Mexicans, but no, he’s the exact opposite. He, he is, he is overly kind, overly kind to people. Like if you walk by someone who’s like, like a homeless guy, Greg is the dude who talks to him and is like, Hey dude, what the fuck? Get your shit together. And it’s like, just starts talking to the dude and home Depot. Who’s like fucked up like that. Greg cares.

Will Branstetter (08:24):

Everyone has it put together. If you’re in home Depot, I think

Sevan Matossian (08:27):

The bums in front of home. No, it’s just like a bomb in front. Oh, in

Will Branstetter (08:29):

Front. Yeah. In front, if they’re inside,

Sevan Matossian (08:31):

They got, Greg gives him a 30 minute lecture and then Greg gives him a fitty. I used to love hearing him lecture, the homeless people, a Ted talk, like, like I’m like, man, these people are so lucky to get a fucking pep talk from Greg anyway. And, and they were always, he, he, he, he, uh, he wouldn’t get offended. So Greg could talk to the best of them. He could just be like, get at it with them. So anyway, so, so Greg’s pissed, right? And this fucking fight ensues in the meeting. And, and I’m, I’m talking like, for me, it’s for some people maybe that shit’s normal, but it’s intense. People are yelling, it’s getting intense. Greg people are spitting venom and insults. And it, it feels like we’re fucking an episode of sons of anarchy. And, uh, and three people in that meeting didn’t speak up and get, people are getting Dave’s back.

Sevan Matossian (09:14):

Who were like the biggest Greg Glassman ask kissers. You would never, and these people were like, no, Dave’s right. We should do this. I couldn’t believe it. And there were three people in that meeting who didn’t stand up and defend Dave and agree with Dave. Uh, one of ’em was, uh, uh, um, Dale, Sharon didn’t say anything. Uh, and Jeff Kane, the guy who was the CEO and his mistres didn’t say anything. Matter of fact, they attacked Dave. She didn’t, he did the dude. Jeff came and eventually became CEO told Dave, if you don’t like Greg’s decision, you should quit. I used to work at a job where I didn’t like my boss and I had to quit this. Guy’s such a dude. And

Mattew Ouza (09:43):

He checked for Grave’s approval.

Sevan Matossian (09:45):

Right, Greg, like, like, can you imagine we’re in a, in a debate that like, that’s the dumbest thing you could do at a work debate. And then you tell someone, Hey, you should quit. If you don’t like it, like, why are you going nuclear? Like, we’re trying to work shit out. And he

Mattew Ouza (09:55):

Was gonna fire half of him anyways. So,

Sevan Matossian (09:58):

Well you maybe foreshadowing. Yeah. Yeah. It could be foreshadowing. It, it was crazy. It was, it was, it was such, he’s such a douche. This guy, I’m a PhD philosophy major in English, academic from the university of Washington. And yet you do dumb shit like that. If you don’t like it, you should quit. Anyway. So, and, and then I didn’t say anything to defend Dave, and I didn’t say anything to defend Dave, cuz Greg had just given $250,000, his down payment on the house. Like literally like the day before I was like, yeah, Greg, get him. Fuck Dave up. Get him

Mattew Ouza (10:30):

Stupid idea, Dave,

Sevan Matossian (10:31):

I get played plenty. I don’t need no fucking bonus. Greg’s a good dude. You just got your bonus. Yeah. But these fucking people were defend. I mean, was, it was just a, it was just a, it was just an idea. Dave was storm out there. It’s a great idea. Reward people based on their hard work and have an affiliate liaison program. Let’s talk about it. But it got really heated, which is fine. Maybe it’s just me. Who’s uncomfortable with that kind of heated discussion. And um, even I remember even Marshall Brennan, the, the, the, he defended Dave, Ben, ER, never fucking stands up for shit. He was our CTO, just a fucking coward to the highest order. He stood up for Dave Russ green, who always had fucking Greg’s back. He stood up for Dave. I was like, wow. Uh, um, oh, you know, who was in there? The chief strategist was in there. Um, Brian Mulvaney was in there. I can’t believe, I didn’t remember his name. He stood up for Dave. That motherfucker had Greg’s back just about as much as anyone except for me.

Sevan Matossian (11:23):

And so it didn’t happen. It didn’t happen. We didn’t, we didn’t the, the, the, the, the, we, we just stayed with having, um, Instagram accounts. And that was kind of the, the affiliate representatives from 2016. And then in that, in that meeting, it didn’t happen. Well, a couple months later, Greg, um, Greg and made this guy who was in the room with his mistres Olivia Leonard, you made him, um, the CEO. And then eventually they, they, they, they, they forced her into my position. They knew that all along his mistres came in and they, they tried to boot me out and put her in my position. It was fucking madness. Anyway, within a fucking week of being CEO, this dude started, this is in 2018. He started the affiliate liaison program, which Patrick Blanken shit calls. Um, Um, I forget what he calls it. He calls it something else, but, but it’s a if affiliate representative program it’s field leaders, um, um, he starts this program, this guy, Jeff Kane does, and, um, and, and put, and I’m put in charge of it still en Tyson OID and Matt Bishop run it. And then a little while later, um, Jimmy Letford is put in charge. Who’s eminently capable, fucking Amma. Everyone loves Jimmy amazing leader, strong dude, fucking collegiate wrestler from, uh, the Naval academy Marine.

Mattew Ouza (12:43):

And that was 2016

Sevan Matossian (12:45):

Had I’m smart. Uh, that’s probably 2018 now. Okay. The original Instagram shit happened in 2016. Sorry. Thank you for trying to keep me on track. Yeah, the original Instagram shit where we had country started getting their own Instagram accounts like CrossFit, France, cross, um, whatever that started in 2016. And then in 2018, we actually made it a little more robust and we called it, I think the country liaison program or something, and it was in full swing. And then, and then this guy, Jeff Kane left and, and Dave came in as CEO for a couple months before Greg sold the company. And then that thing really fucking took off. And Nicole Carroll was per duper involved in it too. But to say that this thing started in 2020, that under Rosa bat, shit crazy. Just revisionist history. I mean, I, why are you even writing? First of all, you could be like, Seon, why do you care? Well, why is he writing the article? Why does he care?

Mattew Ouza (13:35):

Right.

Sevan Matossian (13:36):

And don’t be like, well, no UHS. That’s actually the, um, uh, and this is, this is woke shit by the way, too. If, if, if the response is no, it wasn’t called field leaders and affiliate representatives at the time, dude, changing the name. Doesn’t doesn’t doesn’t change. Like if we start calling a cared orange, it’s still a fucking carrot. Like, don’t be like bug bunny, never ate carrots. Those are not oranges. Like, shut the fuck up.

Mattew Ouza (13:59):

I mean, I think you could probably look back an affiliate. You could probably look back in your email and you could see the original emails that came out under Dave cash announcing the,

Sevan Matossian (14:07):

And I do have all my old emails and I, and I, and I did, I dug around. That’s how I got this timeline. I dug in my old emails and thank you as Susan’s right over there. That’s why I keep looking over

Mattew Ouza (14:16):

There. I know I keep looking at you across this side rather than I think computer too.

Sevan Matossian (14:20):

We’re in the same room today. And then after that, Dave Castro started the, um, uh, scholarship program. And, uh, and, and, and we all know what happened there. Dave went to Atlanta to, to run the scholarship program that Rosa supposedly got credit for. But Rosa was at mayhem, fucking trying to, um, push Luke Parker off of Rich’s Dick. So he could sit on it while Dave was for fucking in Atlanta working with fucking the, the scholarship program. No shit.

Mattew Ouza (14:48):

There was a lot of, uh, dog and pony when he first came on. Oh,

Sevan Matossian (14:51):

It’s so ridiculous.

Mattew Ouza (14:52):

And there’s a lot of talk about like, he, I actually do CrossFit, which was ironic because then everybody hired on from that point had no idea what the fuck CrossFit was

Sevan Matossian (15:00):

And they still don’t. Uh, then they affiliate a newsletter, um, came out and that was also, uh, uh, or, or sometime in that period. Um, and, and that was also a Dave Castro idea. And Dave, as you can see, if you fall on Instagram, follows, uh, all of, or visits, shitloads of affiliates still, and you don’t see anyone else doing that, it’s always been like that. Not that you didn’t always see people doing it. Greg always popped into affiliates too. But Greg Dave, I remember at one point, Dave said he is gonna go to a hundred, every affiliate in San Diego. And I think he went to a hundred affiliates in a hundred days. And I think he worked out at 90 of them. He drug me along to one, one or two of those visits and we worked out against each other,

Mattew Ouza (15:41):

Really people would pay to see that.

Sevan Matossian (15:44):

I remember we did this one workout in this parking lot. I think it was an ocean site or something. And I was beating him most of the workout. And then there was, I think there was like overhead squat or something. And it was, and it was like

Mattew Ouza (15:59):

Just being overhead lunch,

Sevan Matossian (16:01):

Overhead lunch, overhead. Oh yeah. Overhead lunch. Right? Some people don’t still dunno what CrossFit is. That’s okay. It was a overhead lunch. And I, I wanna say it was something crazy, like 90, 95 pound barbell. And it was far. And I, I think not only could I not do it, but I had to with 95 pounds, but I think then he beat me. I think I used 65 and he used 95 and he beat me with the heavier weight or something. And it was, we got into a fight. Cause I was just like stuck on the fact that I was winning most of the workout, but then he crushed me at the end and he’s like, but I won. I’m like, yeah, but I was winning most of the workout. He’s like, yeah, but I won, you know, you know that shit,

Will Branstetter (16:42):

Not really. I’ve never tried to make the argument. I was seeing them a

Sevan Matossian (16:48):

Workout. Cause, cause your parents taught you to be a good

Mattew Ouza (16:49):

Sport. He’s like, did you see, I won the first round. I don’t know what this deal is. I clearly had it.

Sevan Matossian (16:54):

One of, one of the first times I ever worked out with Dave and Justin and I worked out with Dave and Justin and someone else was there. I can’t remember what, and the workout had 135 pound thrusters in it. And I was so, and, and Dave put himself and we had to rotate. There was only one bar and Dave put himself in the, in the front and me in the back being that he was the strongest and I was the weakest. And I was so happy when I would, I, the, I, I caught up to the group and just kept pressure on him the whole time, like showing that I wasn’t the slowest, you know what I mean? So I was always waiting for the bar motherfucker. I’m the weakest,

Mattew Ouza (17:29):

That’s the deal with the partner workouts. You don’t have to be that fit. You just have to be fitter than your partner.

Sevan Matossian (17:33):

So, so, so just, just forget morning, chalk up. Just, just forget it

Mattew Ouza (17:38):

And head on over to our website, subscribe to our newsletter. We will get all the latest news and

Sevan Matossian (17:43):

Just forget is just nonsense. Patrick,

Mattew Ouza (17:48):

What do you think Thea, do you think he wrote that on his own? Like how do you think that started? Do you think they were like,

Sevan Matossian (17:53):

Hey, we need to, I don’t even understand the point of the article. I don’t even understand like why he wrote it’s maybe he wrote it so that our show has shit. Maybe he’s like, man, that Seon podcast is dull as shit. I’m gonna give him something. I’m gonna throw him a bone. Good dude.

Mattew Ouza (18:04):

Thanks Patrick.

Sevan Matossian (18:05):

I’m serious. I’m serious. But

Mattew Ouza (18:08):

He could write some more stuff. Like Rosa actually establishes L one curriculum.

Sevan Matossian (18:13):

Uh, Devon, what do you think of the soft white underbelly on YouTube? I don’t know what that is. Does anyone know what that is?

Mattew Ouza (18:20):

I don’t trust people without their names and they, uh, I don’t trust people without their name. The full name inside YouTube. It’s just an I, what happened? You just fall apart.

Sevan Matossian (18:33):

I don’t know what’s going on here.

Mattew Ouza (18:34):

Ah, dude went

Sevan Matossian (18:35):

Mattew Ouza (18:41):

I, I gotta get used to this thing so I could quick,

Sevan Matossian (18:44):

I, I, I wish I could tell you what we’re, what is this part? What my hair is such a mess to it. Um, I, why that’s why it’s just not behaving. We’re in, uh, We’re we’re we’re feet away from the Pacific ocean right now, Susan I one, one of, uh, our sponsors has been, uh, generous enough to, uh, set us up in the most remarkable home. You could imagine, uh, right on the Pacific ocean and for the next two weeks. So we’re pretty stoked. It’s a nice, it’s a nice place to talk about Patrick.

Mattew Ouza (19:16):

What are these things about? Um, a safe place. Not getting emails here.

Sevan Matossian (19:21):

Oh, uh, yeah. I subscribed so many times went to my spam box. Still. No newsletter guys. No. What do you mean if it went to your spam box? How can there be no newsletter? No, like

Mattew Ouza (19:29):

She’d checked the spam box. It still wasn’t there.

Sevan Matossian (19:31):

Oh,

Mattew Ouza (19:33):

Bruce, you didn’t get yours either. What’s

Sevan Matossian (19:36):

Happening? I got mine off forge.

Will Branstetter (19:38):

Mattew Ouza (19:44):

Uh, okay.

Sevan Matossian (19:45):

Uh, miss cabinet maker. How are you? Good morning.

Jody (19:48):

Hey. Hi. Good morning.

Sevan Matossian (19:50):

Good morning. Hi Jody.

Jody (19:53):

I thought I give, say hi.

Sevan Matossian (19:55):

Hi. Thank you. How are you?

Jody (19:57):

I’m great. Listening along

Sevan Matossian (20:00):

Summer setting in here in California.

Jody (20:04):

Say it again.

Sevan Matossian (20:04):

Summer is setting in here in California. It’s what you talk about when you dunno what to talk about. You talk about the weather.

Jody (20:10):

Oh, I, what you talk about?

Sevan Matossian (20:14):

Son can see the, I like,

Jody (20:15):

I, I like that Chas thing from show. I didn’t think,

Sevan Matossian (20:19):

Oh, you did. Okay.

Jody (20:20):

I thought it was great. I was really surprised when you said that was your feedback.

Sevan Matossian (20:23):

Yeah. Well, there’s just, there was one comment on YouTube that said that. And I just felt that, you know, I felt like a little dirty, like I don’t wanna just beat up on, on like, part of me just thinks that, Hey, like we did, we haven’t given them much time to let the us settle. Like maybe they are gonna move the athletes around. By the way, the, the thing with the athletes. I, I, I was, uh, had a coffee this morning at 16 with Suza. I, I, I have the solution. However you did in the open, you get to choose which one, which, uh, area you go to. That’s it stop calling them semifinals, call them regionals. Who cares if you’ve from Australia and you do it in Siberia, like no one gives a shit. Let people pick in the order that they want. They place in the open, done deal. That’s it done? There’s 15 places. You can go around the world. If you’re the worst person, they open your, gonna get the last choice of where to go and

Mattew Ouza (21:08):

Place more emphasis on the open again too. Maybe.

Sevan Matossian (21:10):

Yeah. It’s it

Mattew Ouza (21:11):

A

Sevan Matossian (21:11):

Little more serious. All done. Fix that. I fixed that problem. All done

Jody (21:15):

Well before we know it, this will all be passed. This will be at the game, so,

Sevan Matossian (21:20):

Yep. And Dave will be back running the show and uh, I’ll be on the floor, uh, filming behind the scenes. And

Mattew Ouza (21:26):

Are they just, is he just gonna walk out onto the, onto the main floor and like all the athletes are gonna be, oh, like be like afraid and

Sevan Matossian (21:34):

I’m parachuting in.

Mattew Ouza (21:35):

It’s a little excited you’re para.

Sevan Matossian (21:39):

Yes. Ma’am yes.

Jody (21:42):

I’m following the, I quit my box. So I’m following the

Sevan Matossian (21:47):

Wow. Why’d

Mattew Ouza (21:48):

You do that? Those are rights. Those workouts.

Sevan Matossian (21:50):

No, he, no, he doesn’t. Don’t listen to Suza. Um, uh, why did you do that? Why’d you quit your box? Isn’t it a nice place?

Jody (21:59):

No, you said don’t pay the mothership. So that’s what I’m doing.

Sevan Matossian (22:01):

Wow. Oh man, that hurts me. But those are small. I feel like those are, are small. Go one. I feel like those are small businesses. Let me tell you something back. I’m doing. Okay. Go ahead. I,

Jody (22:10):

I feel like if Fuso was my box owner, I, I would never quit my box owner. Whoa. And I’m not dealing with it.

Sevan Matossian (22:17):

Oh, well, yeah, yeah, yeah. I get that. That’s nice. I get that. I totally get that. Well, let me tell you something really bad. I’m doing so about a month ago, I knew I was coming down here and uh, I got tickets to Disneyland and the tickets to Disneyland for my whole family are like a thousand bucks.
