Keyshawn Johnson, Jay Williams and Zubin Mehenti chat with CBS NFL analyst & former Raiders CEO Amy Trask about diversity in the NFL today, what it was like working for Al Davis, why this hiring cycle was so disappointing, if she was surprised by JJ Watt signing with the Cardinals, and how she’d handle the situation in Houston with Deshaun Watson. Plus, ESPN NFL Draft Mel Kiper Jr. joins the guys to talk about what he thinks the Jets should do with the No. 2 overall pick, what ultimately sold him on Justin Fields, and why the Patriots should trade up to draft Trey Lance.
Mike and Amy have had their battles, one of which occurred in the aftermath of a surreal press conference that featured one of her Raiders employees railing at another sports journalist and his “smoke pot smokin’ buddy Mike Silver” (who at the time was not present and was not, in fact, his buddy). We segue from that story to another Marijuana Moment--this time, in the form of a question that Natalie, then a Cal student, posed to Amy, a panelist at a packed party hosted by Mike before Super Bowl 50. We hear about Amy’s friendship with Ice Cube, her partner in ‘The Big3’ (a basketball league featuring retired stars), and her affinity for ice cream, emailing instead of texting and being disturbingly polite and civil on Twitter. (Don’t worry--she still goes ham in real life.) We also get Amy’s side of her infamous press-box shushing of sports columnist Ann Killion during the national anthem, as detailed in Ep. 28.
