Listen now

Sevan Matossian (00:02):

Bam we’re live. I didn’t do my voice exercises this morning.

Mattew Ouza (00:09):

<laugh> wait. Do you really do voice

Sevan Matossian (00:11):

Exercises? No. I mean, once I did someone told me I should and I was like, that’s a fucking brilliant idea. And they told me like what I’m supposed to do, but, and I you’re supposed to, um, go G O O G. You’re supposed to go From like the highest to your lowest.

Mattew Ouza (00:31):

Ooh, that

Sevan Matossian (00:31):

Just fucking made me tired. <laugh> and then, and then you do the same thing with yeast. How are you?

Mattew Ouza (00:36):

Oh, I’m good. It always does feel weird. This is the first time I’ve spoken this morning, right? Oh, like, I don’t know if you’re far awake at your house.

Sevan Matossian (00:45):

Taylor Smith. Good morning, Mr. Belling, housing, coffee, bacon and podcast. Good way to start the day. No doubt. Hey, did you see the, um, are, are, do you think you’re gonna be able to pull up that? Um, I know we’ve had some issues, not quite as savvy as the great Caleb. Um, did you see the, uh, I sent you that someone from CrossFit, like, I don’t know his name. JT Salinger? No, no. That’s an author who wrote that. Is it on, um, is

Mattew Ouza (01:12):

It on the notes?

Sevan Matossian (01:14):

No, it’s not on the notes. It’s um, uh, I sent it in our thread and it’s a, uh, it’s a, it’s a letter from, hold on. I’m gonna make it bigger. JT Saer that guy wrote some book that I read, uh, Jeremy, who, what did JT Saer write? He wrote the it’s like the coming of age book. What is that? Uh, this is from a Jeremy Landis over at CrossFit, Inc. It’s a product and technology org update that, um, looks like was sent out from him to the company.

Mattew Ouza (01:45):

And where is it at the text?

Sevan Matossian (01:47):

Uh, in the text thread. I blew it up. You don’t even have to, um, I can read it, but basically let, let me go back a little bit. I’m getting ahead of myself this, um, okay. I guess I never really did work at a, uh, I used to run a home for disabled adults. And when I started, when I started there, um, uh, I, I think I was making 4 25 an hour or I forget what it was, but whatever minimum wage was, maybe it was 7, 6 95 an hour at that time. But anyway, I started there, I did the job interview barefoot and oh, catcher in the rye. Thank you, Peter. Yeah, catcher in the rye. Um, and, uh, I did, um, I did the, uh, I worked there, I got the job there and was to take care of developmentally disabled adults. And, and, um, my, my, I was, I was homeless at the time and what’s funny is my wife at the time she knew we knew each other and I told her I was gonna apply for a job there. And she’s like, oh, do you care if I apply too? And we talked about it. And basically she was saying like, Hey, we’re both gonna apply. I’m this fucking, really cute fucking college girl. Who’s like from LA and kept. And you’re fucking homeless dude. Like if we both apply, you’re fucked.

Mattew Ouza (02:55):

She was basically asking, is it okay if I have your job? Yes,

Sevan Matossian (02:58):

Yes. But anyway, so we both apply and we both get hired. And over the next five years, as I worked there, I climbed the ranks to the highest position at the place. And I have like 20 people working for me. And one of the things the owners of the company said was they had never seen a, um, such a low attrition rate. Like once you got a job there, you didn’t quit. And none of the other houses, none of the other branches in the company, it was, it was a pretty high turnover, uh, situation. By the way, on a completely side note, all the professionals that came to work there, everyone who was a psychology sociology, BA ma PhD, they all quit within months. Like they had the book smarts, which they didn’t, they had the, the brainwashing, but they could not hang that shit is totally different in practice.

Sevan Matossian (03:37):

It’s like thinking you’re gonna take your L one and go straight to the games. I mean, it’s just idiocy. So, but, but that’s the way the world works anyway. Um, that’s true. Then when I was at CrossFit, it was, it was the exact same thing. I guess I’ve never had like a, a real job, like where, where what most people do. And by real job, I mean, where you’re just a fucking slave, you’re a tool. You’re not an entrepreneur entrepreneur within the company. You have no pride. You have no integrity. You have no, you’re just a fucking douche. <laugh>. And, and the thing is, is even when I had those kinds of do jobs, I, I still, like when I, I have said this before, I was a cashier at a, uh, at like a, it was like a Costco, but before Costco was around and you had to punch into price for everything, and I prided myself on just fucking being the best and being present for everyone, even as a 16 year old kid, I knew that.

Sevan Matossian (04:28):

Um, or, or I don’t know if I, I didn’t know it, I did it. I didn’t know it. I did it. I lived it. So when I worked at CrossFit, there was no attrition, grey wouldn’t fire people, and people wouldn’t quit. It was, it was crazy. It was the dream job. And 90% of your 90% of your employees pro I wanna say 99 worked their ass off. Like, you’d never been with harder working people. There’s no Saturdays and Sundays, we didn’t have like holidays or like, you would never, even in the, in the, for years at CrossFit, you didn’t even, you could just be like, Hey, I’m going on vacation? Like, we didn’t have like paid time off or, or you could be like, Hey, my wife had a kid I’m not gonna come in for two months. Like, people would just did that. And everyone was cool with it. You know what I mean? Mm-hmm <affirmative> yeah. This company a hundred employees. And like, we just ran like, just like how I imagine the S Smurfs to run. It’s

Mattew Ouza (05:13):

A unique situation.

Sevan Matossian (05:15):

Yeah. It was crazy. No one would be like, oh, he’s faking it. Or he’s, he’s lazier. He’s taking time too much time off.

Mattew Ouza (05:22):

Right. Just assumed you’re still gonna get the work done. And yes, you’re on top of your stuff. Yes, yes. I wanted to work there so bad.

Sevan Matossian (05:28):

Or dude, while you’re there, while you’re doing your surf trip and fucking El Salvador, you also stop in, in the gym there and make a video there. Right. I mean, that, that it was,

Mattew Ouza (05:38):

And people loved that too. Yeah. HQ people would stop into the gym. You’re like, oh,

Sevan Matossian (05:44):

And it didn’t matter whether you were on the legal team. The, the, like, like the, the legal team would like one, one of the ladies on the, like one of the lawyers on the legal team, or one of the dudes on the legal team would like go to Italy and on vacation with their, and then they’d send everyone a picture of like, Hey, they’re in a CrossFit gym there. And then we would post it on the main, I mean, it was just, that’s cool. Good place. Yeah. But now, now they have a situation there where it, I mean, they can’t keep anyone. It’s just, it’s especially the people at the top, which is really concerning, you know, they, they already lost their CEO. They didn’t replace him. They fired the director of the games. They didn’t replace him. I mean, they say they replace him with Justin, but we know that that’s not true. Um, a, a replacement would be, if you get rid of a pillow in your bedroom and you bring in a new pillow, that’s a replacement. If you get rid of your pillow and bring in two throw pillows, that’s not, uh, that you didn’t replace it. <laugh> you have something different. Those are throw pillows from your couch. They’re not even supposed to be used. <laugh> they don’t, uh, thank you. I, I need to, like, whenever I come with these analogies, I need like a, a, a cheering,

Mattew Ouza (06:47):

A cheering, like a button.

Sevan Matossian (06:49):

Like, if it’s good, like, if it’s good. Yeah. AR

Sevan Matossian (06:53):

Yeah. Like you should just be judging my analogies. <laugh> so, so this guy, this guy is the CTO. That’s chief technology officer, and he runs the, uh, you know, let’s say the games website, the games website. Yeah. Hi. This is from him. Jeremy Landis, high team. It is with heavy heart. I don’t know what that means. I, I do not know what shit like that means. So also we know because of the Dave castor debacle, that when people are let go there, there’s some shenanigans go that go on in the background. We, we, we know that it’s not a, It’s not a sincere departure. The, the elite, the presentation of the departure is not a sincere. We, we know that, right. You could even say, um, it’s lying. Not, not, I’m not saying that. I’m saying that’s what they’ve established with us. As people who are just watching this,

Mattew Ouza (07:41):

They call it PR though.

Sevan Matossian (07:43):

Remember? Yes. PR yes. Uh, would you like to get together with Mr. Andrew Weinstein and Justin LA Franco at the morning, chalk up and figure out how we’re gonna tell the world that you’re leaving?

Mattew Ouza (07:53):

<laugh> I wish that would,

Sevan Matossian (07:55):

Oh, wait. Oh, wait. Here comes Tommy and Shawn let’s ask them to how they wanna present it on their six listeners on their private Patreon. Okay. Uh, so, so Jeremy land, high team, it is with heavy heart that I write to let you all know, I’ve decided to leave CrossFit. As you heard at the offsite that, that, as you heard at the offsite, that’s, that’s what they call their meat. God, they’re such corporate goof

Mattew Ouza (08:20):

Bag. We should do that in the newsletter. We should do a corporate, uh, like key. Like here’s,

Sevan Matossian (08:24):

I’m gonna be out of pocket for the next two weeks. I’m gonna be out of pocket for the next two weeks. Uh, SU can you, uh, have someone fill in for me on the podcast?

Mattew Ouza (08:31):

You can’t leave. Now this Sue’s got some real legs.

Sevan Matossian (08:34):

What <laugh>, what a shit life. I apologize for all of you who are living that shit life, but you can fix it. You could be garbage, man. You don’t have to do that. You can still be the best you in a shit hole. You could be the best prisoner. It’s always up to you. You could live in China and be the, or, or, uh, Canada, either of those places and be the best, uh, um, slave call me. Yeah, call me, call me. Uh, it is with, it is with heavy heart that I will write to let you all know. I’ve decided to leave CrossFit. As you heard at the offsite, CrossFit has been working to refocus his strategy over recent months to build for future success on our remarkable legacy and existing core products. I mean, this is just horses shit. Basically what he’s saying is, is like, Hey, this is how I interpret this.

Sevan Matossian (09:14):

Hey, we, we don’t have, uh, any, I’m not gonna interpret it in pursuing that vision. We’ve shifted our focus for the next 18 to 24 months away from new initiatives. So we can make sure we establish the right technology foundation for future growth and success. CrossFit has traditionally underinvested in technology, and we’re still playing ketchup and building the right systems and tools for our needs today. Getting that foundation right is critical. And we have a tremendous progress on our technology, and we have made tremendous techno uh, progress on our technology foundation. So it’s, it’s with heavy heart that he wants to leave. A shitload of work, needs to be done. A shitload of great work, great work has to be, has already been done, but, but they’re not gonna do anymore for the next 18 to 24 months. I think that that’s not interpretation. I think that’s what he’s saying.

Sevan Matossian (10:00):

As I look at the work ahead of us for the next two years, I realize it doesn’t match with what drives me. My passion has always been fueling large transformation and rapid growth by building new B to C business to consumer products. And that opportunity was a big part of the reason I joined the company because we have pushed back the timeframe for most of those new initiatives. I’ve given some thought to my own future. And I decided it’s time to hand the reigns to some new leaders who can complete the critical foundational work we’ve started. So is it foundational? Is it not foundational? Is it really because it doesn’t fit? What, what you wanted to do? You know, this could all change next week again. I mean, there’s no fucking way of knowing this thing had, does not have a rudder in the ocean. It’s just bobbing around mm-hmm <affirmative>. Yeah. Uh, with my departure, my org will be split into two groups with Sarah Cowell running program and product and Robin Opie, running data and technology. I’ve heard that name before that dude was there. That Opie dude was there for the, for the minute that I was there.

Sevan Matossian (10:59):

That’s not good by the way. What, what that, whatever he just said right there. Um, that’s what happened to the games team? We’re not sure what the fuck’s going on over there. And when you split those up like that, what you do is you lose leadership and with leadership, you lose accountability mm-hmm which is huge. And you get a power vacuum. You get all the drama. That’s I don’t know that department. Uh, but that’s not, that’s not good. Basically. That’s what’s going on over the games team. If you ask me to basically you have, uh, really, really capable, uh, Adrian Bosman over there, and you have Justin Berg and, and, and I don’t know who else, but you don’t, you, you need someone at the top. Who’s, who’s sitting on the horse with the helmet like that. Everyone knows they’re accountable to, uh, this was not an easy decision and it was certainly made much harder by getting to meet so many of you during the offsite professionally.

Sevan Matossian (11:44):

I’m so impressed by the quality of this team across the board. CrossFit has a bright future with passion of all you bring to the table each day. Man, if you think it has passion, now you should have seen it. Uh, three years ago, dude, fucking blown. Your you’d got blown out of the room. I’m extremely proud of the team. We’ve built my time here and the tracks we work so hard to lay so we can support CrossFit’s future growth. I wish they, he would tell me exactly what they did. Like you, you mean you fixed the games app, so it says it’s in Madison and not Hamburg, Germany. I mean, what, um, personally, I personally, I leave a CrossFitter for life and will always be part of the community. Well, that’s cool. Uh, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you’d like to grab some time or need anything over the next two weeks. Okay, cool. I’ll do that. Jeremy, maybe you come on the podcast. We can talk about, um, what happened. I’ll keep plenty. Say that again.

Mattew Ouza (12:30):

That would be cool.

Sevan Matossian (12:31):

I will keep plenty of time for one on ones. And Lori Hanson has graciously offered to help me coordinate times. I don’t know who that is after that. I’m always available by text or email away. And when it be good to connect,

Mattew Ouza (12:45):

Don’t call me no kidding.

Sevan Matossian (12:47):

That’s great. Respect Jeremy, man. That’s a lot, Jeremy. I think you could have done that in one paragraph. If I was, uh, if I was, uh, yeah, I’m surprised that Frank will let you put out that much. That’s weird. <laugh> um, No, no, no, no, no, no. I gave, uh, uh, I did not. I gave, uh, Adrian Bosman a compliment, an observation. I made an observation that could be perceived as a compliment regarding Adrian.

Mattew Ouza (13:14):

So they have no CEO. They have no CTO. Mm-hmm <affirmative> there’s no,

Sevan Matossian (13:19):

No, they have no head of the games department.

Mattew Ouza (13:22):

So it it’s just a, it’s just a ship out to sale with, with no, with no sales, no wins.

Sevan Matossian (13:28):

The people there have to. Yeah. And the people there know what’s going on, they know what’s going on.

Mattew Ouza (13:36):

Can it be saved?

Sevan Matossian (13:37):

I, I wonder if that dude got equity in the company. I bet you, he did. So he, he came there, he got a little peace.

Mattew Ouza (13:43):

You think so?

Sevan Matossian (13:44):

I’m I, I, I bet. I bet that’s how those dudes worked. That’s how that whole, the, the Rosa clan works. That was the

Mattew Ouza (13:51):

Ma he leave then

Sevan Matossian (13:52):

I’m sure there’s an NDA. Yeah, but the I’m sure. I, I don’t even know what that is. Never mind. I’m not even gonna go there. Uh, okay. Uh, further furthermore, so that takes care of our, talk about the, um, technology department. Let’s talk about the affiliate department now.

Mattew Ouza (14:09):

<laugh> um, there’s some good passion and some good entrepreneurship going on over there.

Sevan Matossian (14:16):

There is. Let’s say I worked at, let’s say I worked at apple and I made an app. Do you think apple would allow me to use their email list to, um, push forward? My app? Let’s say I made an app that could track, um,

Mattew Ouza (14:30):

Not even an app. What if you just went left field and made like, you know, t-shirts you just

Sevan Matossian (14:37):

Caller don’t ruin the show. Please.

Mattew Ouza (14:42):

Do we have a caller?

Sevan Matossian (14:43):

We did

Mattew Ouza (14:45):

Caller. Caller. What affiliate do you belong to? What’s your question this morning, caller,

Sevan Matossian (14:50):

Caller, Hold on. Caller. Caller

Mattew Ouza (14:54):

Sounds like you’re calling your dog

Sevan Matossian (14:56):

Now. Well, that’s one way not to ruin the show. Just don’t say anything. Uh, or, or let’s say I worked at, um, porn hub and I BLD my latest work. And I do you think porn hub would let me, um, tap into their email list and fucking email. Everyone who watches PornHub to be like direct them to, um, the Seon Don show. Do, do you think that they’re cool with that?

Mattew Ouza (15:19):

<laugh> might get in a little in trouble for that one.

Sevan Matossian (15:22):

Yeah. You’re not allowed to do that. Right. And you’re not allowed to do that if you’re, you’re not allowed to do that at apple either, right?

Mattew Ouza (15:27):

No, it’s literally intellectual property theft. Like you’re stealing those E emails and using ’em for your own personal gain.

Sevan Matossian (15:34):

That’s. And if you did do that, you would think that there was maybe some sort of common sense component missing in the person who did that. And, and here’s one thing I’m not a big thing of like fair. Well, that’s not fair. Well, that’s not fair, but I am, but I do believe in precedent. And so if, if apple let them do that with one employee, then apple, all they would be doing is sending out fucking emails all day, every day, um, promoting apps of their employees, and then people would start paying their employees to promote apps. So even if SU didn’t make the app, someone would pay him $50,000 and give him a credit for working on the app and then SU would have access to the apple email list. And they, I mean, it would be ridiculous.

Mattew Ouza (16:16):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (16:20):

Same thing with PornHub. Imagine if I worked there and I was just fucking, spaming the fucking largest email list in the history of the fucking world with, with my personal work or better yet, you could pay me, um, uh, Ali Larson, Alyssa Larson. And I could be, um, uh, putting out your best work in email <laugh>. So my point is this, there was someone there’s someone who works for CrossFit Inc. In the affiliate department, who’s a country liaison or country manager or whatever you wanna call them. They took their list. They took the, the CrossFits, uh, email list and they sent on an email promoting one of their own events.

Sevan Matossian (17:04):

I mean, I’m not, I’m not I’m, I’m not mad. Just so you know at it, it, it, it, um, I’m mad at like, just like if, um, I’m mad. It it’s, it’s like, um, it’s like, uh, uh, it would be like if the clown came to your kid’s show to, to blow up balloons. And when he opened up like his bag with all his shit, his wife’s dildo was in there. Oops. And you gotta hide that shit <laugh> it would just be weird. Like, dude, you already a kid’s birthday party, wifes, DDO got in your bag of balloons.

Mattew Ouza (17:31):

You, I dunno. It’d

Sevan Matossian (17:32):

Be hard to explain. It would be hard to

Mattew Ouza (17:34):

You don’t want that clown on your kids now? No,

Sevan Matossian (17:36):

No, no

Mattew Ouza (17:37):

Trust.

Sevan Matossian (17:38):

That’s like, that’s like some Disney shit. Oops. I swear to God it was an accident.

Mattew Ouza (17:43):

<laugh>

Sevan Matossian (17:45):

How male, how male-centric is the whole podcast world? Look at? Even our mics look like penises can’t they shape one like a vulva. Oh, it it’s just, it’s just, it’s just ridiculous. It, it, it is, but it’s fun. Don’t get me wrong. It’s fun, Tommy. Shawney fun. Uh, dudes at the, uh, at the affiliate, um, level using the CrossFit email list to promote their events. That’s, it’s fun. CTO quitting. It’s fun in a weird way. It’s fun. I’m not, well,

Mattew Ouza (18:12):

It’s the lack of leadership and accountability. You think something would fly like this if, uh, Dave was still around and you were on his team, like if I was working for Dave and he found out I’d I’d, you know, swipe the email list and send out my, oh,

Sevan Matossian (18:23):

You’d get your ass beat. You, you would get your at, you would get such a gnarly chewing to if he, and you know, he’s publicly, uh, I dunno if he’d do it publicly, but you would, you would swab the decks. You, you, you would, there would be a, um, there would be repercussions. So you didn’t, um, that, that respected you, but that, um, if you didn’t get fired, there would be repercussions that, um, and I don’t know what the repercussions are for these people. And like, I’m like, maybe this dude did get fired

Mattew Ouza (18:51):

Normally for this, you would be fired. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (18:53):

But it is, it is. I

Mattew Ouza (18:57):

Removed from your position for sure. And the, and the reason why I ask is because especially with all these, um, stuff going on with the discrepancies and the judging and the videos and the lack of cuz we see the same, the same thing that’s happening with his email, same message that, that CTO wrote the same thing that we’ve been seeing from the games in terms of like what’s going on with the leaderboards and those adjustments. I specifically remember. And I can’t, I think it’s, it was either 2000. I think it was 2013. And there’s a video. I don’t know if you filmed this and there’s a video where one of the athletes, I think told their judge, I will fucking kill you. Oh yeah.

Sevan Matossian (19:34):

That was, that was the Ryan Fisher incident.

Mattew Ouza (19:37):

And um, the video,

Sevan Matossian (19:38):

I did film that. I filmed all that. Yeah.

Mattew Ouza (19:40):

You, so you know what I’m talking about? Right. So the video, the video is where Dave gathers everybody around and you could tell, obviously he’s a little, um,

Sevan Matossian (19:46):

Pissed or yeah. He’s pissed. This was in, uh, San Diego. Yes.

Mattew Ouza (19:49):

Yeah. So he gathers everybody around and he goes, Hey, listen up. And he has the judges there and he has all the athletes there and everything else. And uh, and he goes yesterday, this guy, and he has it front of everybody. He goes told this judge, I will fucking kill you. And he’s like, that’s not to be tolerated. You respect these judge on the floor. They make the call. And then he goes, now you need to apologize to all these judges into the other people.

Sevan Matossian (20:13):

And he did Ryan handled it. Good. He did. He did Ryan handed it.

Mattew Ouza (20:17):

He goes, yeah. You know what? Yeah, it was outta line and he apologized. And then, and then I think, uh,

Sevan Matossian (20:21):

I meant to say, I’m gonna fuck you in your ass. Sorry.

Mattew Ouza (20:24):

<laugh> but then at the, after that he goes, Andy McDonald, who was like the fighter. Right? Was that him? Oh, we have a caller on right now.

Sevan Matossian (20:33):

Oh yeah, we do caller. Hi. How are you hung up the first time. What’s what’s wrong with you?

Speaker 3 (20:39):

How many people in prison do you think are jacking off every

Sevan Matossian (20:41):

Night? Uh, it’s 62%. I, I just read an article on it.

Speaker 3 (20:48):

60. Why am I getting locked up?

Sevan Matossian (20:50):

62%. 62%. 62% are doing themselves and 21% or, um, it’s someone else’s hand or total of three?

Speaker 3 (21:02):

The, to I right Jack. Cool.

Sevan Matossian (21:08):

Oh man. I wish your phone line was better. Well, thank you for calling. Just those types of statistics are important. Um, and I think that your presentation of it, I think your, I think your presentation of it being Jack off is very sexist. It feels like it’s only talking about men and I don’t really like that because this is an inclusive show. So please call back later with stats that include women and, um, and, and what happens at the local pound. Thank you. Bye. At the local pound, call her there. Thinking about your mom. Ah, thank you, Travis. Well said Danielle, Brandon and hunter McIntyre. That would be a hot couple who told me? Hunter may have told me to contact her and tell her that they need to make a kid. I can’t remember like their DNA needs. No, no, no. Oh, please, please. Your, your connection’s too bad. You’re fucking the show up. What, what, what?

Speaker 3 (22:05):

Who’s fucking, who in prison?

Sevan Matossian (22:07):

I don’t know.

Mattew Ouza (22:08):

Aggressive.

Speaker 3 (22:10):

It takes my good time for jacking off for something that every person over the age of 12 or 13 does, you’re gonna do that to me. You’re gimme,

Sevan Matossian (22:21):

Hey, doesn’t this guy sound like an old black and white movie. His audio quality. I feel like I’m talking to fucking Laurel and Hardy like abot, Costello.

Mattew Ouza (22:29):

<laugh>

Sevan Matossian (22:30):

What

Speaker 3 (22:30):

You, I wanna look, dude, who says, oh, that’s wrong. I wanna know you. Cause you’re a jerk off yourself and you need to jerk off. Cause there’s something wrong with shit, your brain.

Sevan Matossian (22:41):

Okay. Okay. Hey, um, I appreciate the call that we have a, we have a audio quality issue that makes it

Speaker 3 (22:49):
