Interceptions: The Real-Life Story Behind “The Game”

It’s not a pretty tale either. A few years ago I’d read about an author who had successfully sued  The CW, Warner Brothers and CBS for stealing her story idea. Staci Robinson had written a television script loosely based on her life about a UCLA student dating a young man who’d be drafted into the NFL and their subsequent break-up.

Robinson’s script was rejected but about a year or so later when the sitcom The Game premiered she saw all the key components of her submission being used and took them to court. for copyright infringement. The fact that she a) won her case b) didn’t have to sign a gag order c) went on to publish her book was nothing short of a miracle. It reminds me of Sophia Stewart’s unsuccessful attempt when suing Warner Brothers at not receiving credit and compensation for The Matrix/Terminator story. Stewart being discredited does not mean she did not in fact create it.

When the show debuted as a “spin-off” from Girlfriends I watched but I found myself constantly annoyed while doing so. This was back in my pre-BWE days where I couldn’t quite identify the DBR and other dysfunctional behavior I find so distasteful. All I knew was I thought the premise of a young woman who’d been accepted to a premier medical school decide to give that up to support the NFL aspirations of her boyfriend was insane. I suspected had the situation been reversed he would’ve never put his life on hold or turned down a rare opportunity the way she did.

The book premise per Amazon:

Stefanie Pointer, a UCLA senior on her way to a top ten law school, likes herself just the way she is-a smart, ambitious, but simple girl who is comfortable in a tank top, a pair of jeans and flip-flops. When she foregoes her lifelong professional goals and puts the career of her college sweetheart, star football player, Ricky Powers, before hers, her life turns upside down. She must face the blatant disapproval of her parents and the unremitting voice inside her head constantly asking if she’s doing the right thing. As she finds her way through the complicated life of a soon-to-be NFL wife, Stefanie finds herself trading in her flip-flops for a pair of Jimmy Choos, reckoning with the fierce competition of ruthless groupies and losing sight of her dreams. What else is she willing to sacrifice in her search for true love?

The real-life story was (allegedly) between Robinson and Roman Phifer, who were both UCLA students. She did put her life and career aspirations on hold for him. He was drafted to the NFL. The book details the character helping the athlete with his homework, letting her grades suffer, their multiple break-ups, his constant and escalated infidelities and the warnings she received from numerous friends about getting away from him.

I remember reading the book and shaking from the visceral emotional reaction I was experiencing. I doubt I’d be able to read it today or would even buy it as I’d throw it against the wall in disgust.  Of course many people will ask Roman Phifer who? Exactly. He’s not even a famous player and has since retired. Not that that should matter. Sorry, but now I’d be just as likely to dismiss the author character for being a stubborn fool as she was warned repeatedly by  her friends to use common sense, look at his behavior (not what he said) and end a wholly dysfunctional relationship and get back to focusing on her own life.

The book details the characters’ engagement and the lengths Staci Stephanie went through to hold onto a jerk despite the inevitable sexual perversions that many males seem to want to engage in these days (group sex, etc), the lying, the buying off with expensive trinkets and the promises to change that never occur. Oh and I forgot to mention Roman’s Ricky’s obsession with light/white skin women. At the mere age of 22, 23 (I’d have to go check) she finds him with an even younger (17, 18) and lighter version of herself and she finally decides to end the relationship. She walks away with nothing because she gave up everything to be with him in the first place.

This is really just another example of the wholly dysfunctional, deviant behavior of black males at large and the women who insist on surrounding themselves with the sickness. My only hope is that fans of the show take heed the real-life warning Robinson issues in the book that she had to learn the hard way.

One of the closing scenes in the book (which is very visual by the way – because she is an excellent writer) has her at a bus stop in Westwood where she sees her replacement driving a brand new overpriced car (top down) and wearing a ring big enough to choke a horse. She said she wished the woman well.

The only other tidbit I found mildly interesting about this scenario was the real-life woman in question was allegedly Alexis Eggleston who uses her ex-husband’s last name Phifer, the clothing designer who used to be engaged to Kayne West. I think karma must have visited her for its payment at some point with that relationship.  It all comes full circle at the end of the day.

Did I issue enough “allegedly” flags to CYA??????

Where the tv show ventured off was in diminishing Roman’s Ricky’s Derwin’s duplicity, making Staci Stephanie Melanie a medical student instead of a law student, in adding different characters and making it a comedy. There was a British show titled Footballers’ Wives that was a drama…for a reason. That lifestyle is no joke. Yet, even if the producers had not stolen her idea to turn tragedy into comedy the show is problematic for the message it sends.

When the series ended on the CW network the leads had survived their break-ups, but he had impregnated another woman he’d briefly dated. She was scrambling to throw together a hastily put together wedding so she could be the Mrs. before the ex gave birth to his son. DRAMA.

Now that Satan’s Entertainment Network (that would be BET) has picked up the series I shudder to think about the nonsense that will ensue as they continue down this path. This show also featured a black male player who was an extreme cheapskate married to a white woman where they made jokes about not combing their daughter’s hair. There’s the street-savvy, loud Mom-Manager and her over-sexed, immature son. The only thing that differentiates this show from certain real-life  behaviors is none of the lead actresses are bigger than a size 2 and the show has cast the revolving door of disposable women these men “date” of varying skin shades. Classic tv fake-out.

Speaking of which, I spied the HBO documentary about Magic Johnson & Larry Bird that contained some interesting archival footage. A pre-HIV Johnson was shown being interviewed by a white male sportscaster where he was explicitly bragging about the orgy he’d recently participated in. He was happy as a clam discussing in detail about his ability to sex six women. I know my jaw hit the floor as I felt the thud and didn’t want to trip over it later. He saw nothing wrong with personifying the big Black Buck, Mandingo stereotype and thought nothing about broadcasting his depravity to the world. I’m not going to discuss the Jermaine Stewart accusations. You can Google it if you’d like.

Now let’s be clear that he certainly was not and is not the only male to engage in such activities, but most have the common sense to keep their traps shut about advertising it. He was obviously very famous, especially in comparison to the basically anonymous random Negro athlete who was the orbit of a young woman’s universe featured above. Men who solely focus on playing with balls (instruments, politics, etc.) no matter how gifted, usually have not developed other vital life skills that are necessary to sustain viable relationships. While their fame and money may net them a lot of attention while it lasts, perhaps it’s best to let other women who are willing to sacrifice themselves have at it. YOU can find happiness and contentment with a higher-quality man without enduring unnecessary burdens.

  1. Girlfriends, the show, reached Britain through cable but it was still on in the US when i was living over there so…Girlfriends was great and oh yes. How could I ever forget the hilarious Living Single? I loved Max and Regine, heck I loved Khadijah(Queen Latifah) and Synclair too. I watched LS religiously!

    But I haven't heard anybody black or white talk about The Game…but praise God that they don't! Maybe they'll NEVER show The Game in the UK! It's bad enough that they sell pirated Tyler Perry movies on DVD that get played once in a while at my godparents' house or at my salon, and that Tyler Perry movies over here sadly do get shown in the UK just because Janet Jackson has been in some of them.

  2. Well I'll just count myself lucky that I've never watched it. All I knew was that it was about basketball and just wasn't interested. Your analysis is appreciated and I hope that at least a few people will consider it.

  3. All I'm reinforcing is that this show is like candy and since I don't have diabetes, I can partake in moderation. The people who lead these lives are imitating what they see in their own lives not what they see on tv. Hell the author of the book I'm sure did not seek to lead this life based on what she saw on tv, even unconciously. Now if that's the case you should need a license to own a tv, lest you abuse the use of it….unconciously

  4. This was an excellent post, I shared it on my networks. I remember watching the very first episode (The Girlfriends spinoff) and was very turned off. Catching future episodes here and there, I still had the same feeling and I could not understand why so many ppl liked this show. Why is this dysfunctional relationship seen as such a great love story? The episode where Melanie is desperate to marry Derwin before his OOW child is born in order to one up his babymama was truly cringeworthy.

    Sometimes I feel like I am being contradictory because I love shows like Gossip Girl and SATC, which have their own relationship drama in the plots, but I do feel like there is more balance in how the stories are presented. Can you imagine Serena Van der Woodsen or Carrie Bradshaw frantically putting a wedding together out of insecurity of being upstaged by their fiance's babymama??? They are way too fabulous for that, LOL!

    The other thing that is incredibly sad is how so many BW's stories are being stolen (The Game,The Matrix, Good Hair, etc) We have to be more shrewd in protecting our interests across the board.

    1. Amaka, I just wanted to clarify something base don your Twitter message to me. We need to stop focusing on "black" shows to begin with and have shows featuring normally-acting people who happen to be black. I can't name ONE "black" show that's currently being broadcast (off the top of my head) that's decent.

    2. Carrie was in a dysfunctional relationship though. Big was emotional unavailable and an asshole to her yet she still insisted on pursuing him. He was married before and what did Carrie do? Pretend to be an author pitching ideas to his ex wife so she could ''check out the ex'' She also did plan a huge wedding in the first SATC movie. Carrie cheated on Aiden with Big in the series despite having a good man who would have probably made her happy. Melanie had a good man [his name is escaping me right now lol] but she did. She still wanted to be with Derwin despite his child. So, to me the whole theme of desperation/seeking validation through men despite being fully functional women isn't just something limited to caricatures of black women. Melanie should have left Derwin once Janae became pregnant and gone on to become a doctor. Not be reduced to jokes about not even being a real doctor. I stopped watching The Game once Melanie and Derwin left. I mostly liked it because of Melanie/Kelly/Tasha but I can't get back into it now. Carrie married Big and how long did it take for the viewership to learn his name? LMAO. I'm saying. These are not just issues limited to us.

      1. I'm aware these aren't just issues faced by black women and I've written about the dysfunctional relationship of Carrie & Big in my Evaluating Men for Alliances and Marriage series which you can read from the archives. However, Interceptions is about a real-life relationship and that horrid show The Game was a mockery of it. Melanie should have never been with a Derwin to begin with because he wasn't worthy. She had way more going for her than wasting her time with some random baller. Even in the Carrie/Big dynamic he was described as a better-looking Donald Trump type, so he was a mogul and at least could be a great provider that wasn't dependent on being a highly compensated employee of a team. And even Trump is educated -- even though he displays idiocy often. Besides, discussing issues of incompatible couples and black women dating beneath them deserves attention without mentioning what other women from better protected groups do or don't do. This is about white people.

  5. My, my, my…the depths that sink to in the name of entertainment. Monique (The Monique Show) was celebrating the return of the Game with high praises. But of course, look at the source…she is a DBR royal flush IMHO.

    I always thought the Game was stupid and rubbed me the wrong way but I couldn't quite put my finger on it. The few times I watched for a few minutes was painful and I'd change the channel within two or three minutes. It's jut not funny. Thanks for sharing this well laid out analysis as it confirmed some of my own unsorted feelings I had about the show.

  6. About Magic Johnson. I really wish his wife would have left him when that whole HIV incident came out. Even if they might have reconciled down the line, I don't believe that in those Post-HIV early years she should have stood by him and emotionally supported him as his wife.

    Women in general, but especially Black Women, self-sacrifice too much w/o equitable reciprocity. My mindset in cases where a husband's reckless and stupid actions come back to bite them is this……If I wasn't consulted and made a part of that decision making process and no thought was given to my physical, emotional, and mental well-being, then please don't expect any support from me.

    If MJ hadn't gotten HIV who wants to bet a million dollars that his DBR ways would have continued? It's only because as for right now HIV is incurable. Of course then he found Jesus/religion and changed his way. He needed too because at the time HIV had way more sigma and had a quicker death sentence than now.

    He definitely needed to change quick, in order to get back into his "good, loyal, and faithful" wife's graces. He for sure knew it wasn't going to be the groupies, gold-diggers, and prostitutes he consorted with that would take care of him.

    1. Since Cookie Johnson decided to go "all-in" and be a mule to stay with her husband then so be it. I want to make it clear to other black women they have other options than living that diminished type of life. Fame and money certainly won't replace love, commitment and not having your life be put in danger dealing with an HIV-positive husband.

  7. Faith,

    This last little bit on another note, and then I'll sit back, be quiet, and stop clogging this thread with comments from me {chuckling}:

    You brought back memories when you mentioned Jermaine Stewart! LOL! At the time when the late Mr. Stewart was alive, I hadn't heard about any accusations involving Magic Johnson. This is the first I'm hearing of that; and it's all very interesting…

    1. Oh your comments are welcome as always! Yes, Stewart named names and Johnson's was his #1 regarding their alleged relationship. I most certainly would not find it surprising that such DBR behavior and I won't even refer to it as "down-low" tendencies, more like LOW DOWN would result in HIV. After all, the current stats bear that out.

      1. Piggy backing on this . I worked at an upscale landscaping company some years ago. The owner who was/is Jewish knows many celebs and mingles in those circles as many of her clients are celebs and what not. One day we were talking about Lakers and then started talking about Magic and his past. She told me flat out quiet as kept she knew many people who confirmed that Magic was quite heavy in having sexual relations with men. it was very well known in certain circles. i was shocked. She said many people believe magic caught HIV from women, but many who knew him knows its most likely from the numbers of men he was sleeping with. I was like OMG. Not shcoked at all.

        1. Well this is all speculation on our part and I'm not with him BUT medically it is extremely difficult for women to pass certain viruses and infections to men. People can do their own research but that was a convenient and acceptable story to tell. Not very likely though. Men who have to have sex with large numbers of a variety of partners are simply NOT to be trusted period!

  8. Part 3

    Well, a smart person wouldn't be eating that mess at all—especially when there are other, healthier choices available to them.

    All of the above is insane and totally unnecessary. This business of BW calling themselves eating around the maggots while choosing to consume poisonous, Negro-targeted TV is insane. Black women engaging in this unnecessary dumpster diving for maggot-infested entertainment-food is particularly insane because there's a banquet of healthy, wholesome, fresh food right around the corner. All they have to do is change the channel. Turn the TV off. And seek out the entertainment products that support normal human life.

  9. Part 2

    With all due respect to the "high self-esteemers," a truly healthy person would NOT find anything appealing about these Negro-targeted TV shows. A healthy person reacts with revulsion when presented with that degrading, destructive, Negro-targeted mess (from the coon TV shows to the hip-hop/(c)rap non-music to the illiterate "street literature" trash) .

    A healthy woman who is enjoying the banquet of life does not gravitate to moldy, rotten, maggot-infested entertainment-food. She certainly doesn't put maggot-infested food in her mouth and swallow it down. And then talk about how maggot-infested food is the best thing. And that she's sure that other people know that what she's eating is teeming with maggots, and that they're smart enough to eat around the maggots.

    1. Hear hear Khadija!

      I never watched this show, but everyone told me it was soooo good and that I should have seen it when it was originally on the air. So when I heard it was back but on BET, I had my chance… but seeing that I'm in a different place mentally than I was when The Game first aired, it held no interest to me.

      Yes, I know that people of all races watch mindless television as an escape. But I'm tired of black targeted programs that reflect the serious dysfunction that we see in the black community. The over-fascination with degenerative BM athletes and celebrities who contribute nothing to society is ridiculous, and the fact that black people put these men on the same plane as doctors, lawyers, businessmen when talking about men who are good "catches" financially for a BW is ridiculous.

      I knew a mixed-race BW who was dating an athlete, and they briefly broke up because he said he wanted to concentrate on his professional dreams. Well, four months later, he calls her and says that he's about to be a father, and that he got some woman pregnant while he was "focusing" on making the pros. To her credit, my colleague completely left this man alone after that, but she was so annoyed that this man who was her college sweetheart and claimed to be temporarily breaking up so he could "focus" ended up impregnating another woman. My colleague wanted no part of his NFL/NBA life with a baby and baby mama in tow!

      So I don't need to watch a show about pro athletes or shows about the "wives" of pro athletes (when most aren't wives at all) or see a show featuring black "housewives" — many of whom also aren't wives — where the women's partners are all professional athletes… most of whom will be broke within four years of retirement.

      The fact that we put these athletes on a pedestal and elevate them to a status that they wouldn't have in any other racial/ethnic community is yet another sign of our dysfunction.

    2. I agree K! I stopped watching programs that seem to be par for the course in terms of Black Entertainment. Unfortunatley, i visit my fathers house a lot and my grandmother watches a lot of these TV shows. While I can give her a pass at 82, I simply don't find myself having ANY Interest in that garbage -yes I said GARBAGE b/c that is what it is. She often asks me why I don't like or support Black shows i told her and she still doesn't get it. like i said, she is 82 so what can you do.

      I think BW will be set free the day we start walking away from forms of entertainment that are not pushing us forward as women.

      The stuff Black people put out nowadays is so detrimental to Black women mentally. Media does play an integral role in influencing and the subconscious. A lot of the stuff you constantly watch, can subconsciouly affect the way you see and do things. Add in the majority of BW who are already indoctrinated and shows like this serve as fodder to only keep these BW on zombieland.

      1. You're absolutely right, trash is trash regardless of the color. I can't watch any show that does not have good writing and sadly that eliminates most black shows and sometime most mainstream shows on American televsion.

  10. Faith,

    I know this won't be a popular statement, but it's the truth (as I see it):

    Any AA woman who wants abundant life must stop watching any and all Negro-targeted TV shows. And stop watching so much TV in general. From what little tidbits I've seen in passing while waiting in the car repair shop, etc., that Negro-targeted mess is all deadly poison. And from the descriptions I've heard of these shows over the years, they are getting more toxic with each year that passes.

    I don't care what the "high self-esteemers" (as Halima has described them in a recent post) say. Nobody is healthy enough to be able to drink down regular doses of poison day after day. Some folks will die quicker than others from the poison, but the poison will eventually kill everybody who keeps drinking it.

    And the fact that so many AA women love the taste of obvious poison lets you know that they're not healthy. And their self-esteem is not as high as they like to claim to believe it is.

    1. I agree. I haven't watched it since Season Two when it was its original network. I've cut out pretty much everything since the Fall season and I'm not going back. I wrote this because I know a LOT of black women are STILL watching BET and were flocking to this show. I never really cared for it, but as I stated found the real life parallels very compelling as to the level of indoctrination we have to compensate for. I can see how many black people don't get that this only reinforces and normalizing their dysfunction as a collective. I've said my peace about it.

    2. Amen! I agree with you 100! I've mentioned this a few times on Khadija's blog. Self-esteem does not occur in a vacuum. It's almost imposssible for a BW to develop self-esteem when they allow their psyche's to be violated by these modern depictions of the ABC crew in the media.
      This is NOT Black culture. It's just marketed as Black culture. Every time these shows receive high ratings it acts as silent approval
      for the next show. The next show will be even worse. These shows also act to further stigmitize BW to the world. As Faith has said before, it all ties together.
      Personally, I only have the first 25 channels of cable tv- just enough to watch C-Span. I only hear about these shows when I read BWE blogs, or see glimpses of them in day to day activities. I'm embarrased for all of is when I do see some of the antics that passes for acting by Black folk on tv these days. I stopped watching cavle over five years ago and my self-esteem has never been higher. I LIKE myself now, because I work on improving myself
      everyday. If you want to feel better, do better.

      1. Lynn you said it with this quote: "This is NOT Black culture. It's just marketed as Black culture." That's why I had to write this blog post. As long as the Dysfunction & Death Dealers remained unchallenged the perception will be that this crap meets the approval of ALL of us, instead of "those" people. We are NOT them! Sharing melanin is not sharing similar values.

        1. Khadija I feel so much better! My family thinks I am a weirdo b/c I have no television or cable. LOL I moved to my new place at the beginning of November and have YET to purchase a TV or cable. If by chance I feel like some television, I come up to my Dad's house and watch TV there. And the crazy thing is I do not even feel pressed to get cable or TV. I always feel like my money can go towards something else. Although I will be getting both in February b/c there are other channels I love to watch like Discovery, History channel etc.

  11. Thing is many black viewers,particularly black women, are actually looking to be raised by television.Someone to tell them how to be normal.Someone to school them on what to do about these dire situations.At first I did not realize this until many conversations with many black women on and off line about the man in drag movies.They are actually looking at this stuff for advice on how to be.I was terrified to hear these words out of the mouths of these women given the anti black anit black woman anti-humanity rhetoric in those films.I have a family member who is very anti-gay and loves those man in drag movies, go figure.

    I'm moving away.I have already somewhat detached from many of my own relatives because of their evil toxic ways.I just don't deal with them at all.I'm gonna find away to get my ideal family and community.I'm working on it.

    1. I hadn't thought about that particular angle but it makes sense. AAs don't have cultural anchors, the family has disintegrated and the indoctrination is all-encompassing. So bad advice is proffered. Women are watching television shows to feel validated and to pick up on cues. Television is the last place we should be looking. Despite my highlighting of a show like The Good Wife it's because I'm already looking for positive, affirming messaging that's the opposite of dreck like this! Good for you seeking out your own path. You will find the ideal as you discard the toxic.

  12. I use to dig the Game, until i started to notice those caricatures… Then I stopped.. i am still surprised that its on.. because the writing was actually poor.

  13. Hi Faith, I'm back!

    Thank God great minds think alike! I thought I was the only person in the world who hated this show! From the get go, it amazed me that people were getting exited over the fact that this medical student, a great one by the way, was willing to go through unnecessary drama just to keep some average football player. A low down no good one at that! It's annoying!

    (sigh…) It's sad because cancelled shows like this with such negative messages will be saved instead of shows that I LOVED like "Living Single", that were actually funny.

    The only reason I even remotely know about this show is because my roommate watches it in our room all the time.

    1. hey and Happy New Year. Ooh you poor thing being forced to deal with such crap! Le sigh. Living Single was such a funny show and points out a great example. Max & Kyle had their moments of the classic boy/girl break-up love-me/hate-me go 'round BUT they were ALL redeeming characters who behaved with decorum. Even Regine for all of her materialistic machinations was still a loyal friend. Unlike that other show.

  14. Nope the air is clear here. Thanks for the warning though. It's a black soap opera plain and clear. Relationships, forming and disintegrating, paternity suits, playboys, gold-diggers, etc. I should not have to give that up because a few idiots can't decipher entertainment from their real life choices.

    1. That's your choice but the purpose of my post and this forum is to get black women to focus on their elevation and uplift. The damaging message behind such shows is NOT a soap opera where you watch knowing it's fantasy tripe or angsty exaggerated drama. The plot of that show is reenacted motion for motion IN REAL LIFE by many blacks. That's not entertainment. That's reinforcing garbage. To each his or her own though, but there will be NO defense of that nonsense HERE at this forum.

  15. Love this show, I know its not the best thing on tv. It's just what I want it to be 30 minutes a week of drama encapsulated with slick images and pretty people and drops of comedy. I am sad that the show was stolen and hope the original author was compensated well. But I also feel like most of the viewers are smart enough to know sacrificing your dreams and goals are much more painful than one man's love could heal.

    1. Kennedy: You bring up an interesting point. No, most viewers WILL NOT know enough to dismiss the poisonous message of black woman indoctrination and self-sacrifice that leads to a diminished life. That's the point of warning about such propaganda to begin with. You are saying that YOU want your 30 minutes of crap instead of something that isn't mediocre and dangerous. Fine. That's YOUR choice, but the HOUSE IS ON FIRE and it's your life that's going up in smoke.

  16. I was never a fan of The Game. The one or two shows that I managed to sit through before it was cancelled was enough. Now, I love me some Wendy Raquel Robinson but I think this is too low for her. Sadly, she seems to be typecasted into these types of roles.

    Now that the show is back in rotation, I can't believe (okay, maybe I can) how my fb news feed is LIT UP with 'can't talk- the game is on" or "don't call me for 30 mins" etc etc etc. Uggh. I wonder if people knew the real story would it make any difference. Probably get the same reaction is Good Hair.

    1. Jacquie: I don't expect the increasing majority of black folks or black women in particular to necessarily "get it". I just want to remind the women reading THIS forum to keep their eyes on the prize towards their elevation and life maximization. I do realize this is about chipping away bit by bit the deeply imbedded indoctrination of black women we're dealing with. I also want to keep myself and others who supposed to know better in check. Avoid the Vortex of Coonery at all costs!!!

  17. Great analysis Faith.

    That’s one of the reasons I couldn’t get into The Game. Too many underlying negative messages for women. I just thought it was beyond ridiculous for a smart and pretty woman like Melanie to give up or try like she did substitute her dreams for a guys unproven potential.

    I didn’t know it was based on a real life situation but like you’ve written, the truth is way nastier than on TV.

    I stopped even attempting to follow the show after her desperate behavior to get dwayne back and the whole baby mama situation. I just thought it was beyond pathetic. Add to that all those negative sterotypical roles of the other black women there.

    1. NijaG: Yes it is a mess. The indoctrination of black women and the policing attempts at keeping us as leeches is clearly displayed here. One of the readers posted a complaint about the show on her Facebook page the other day, saying the show is worse now that it's on BET. It was "worse" from Day One!! But I digress….this is why we must have uplifting/entertaining shows to replace the crap otherwise we will not have achieved any progress.
