Podcast cover

Tonight I get into the ramifications of the Supreme Court ruling in favor of the state of New Jersey for sports gambling and in turn striking down the provisions of the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act of 1992. What does this mean for the individual sports leagues and consumers as a whole? I do not have answers for everything but the way in which you access sports may very well change in the near future. Cam also joins me for discussion on this ruling and its potential impact on sports in the US as a whole.

Rank #8: FTP Ep. # 177: #KawhiWatch Has Ended With A Surprise Plot Twist

Podcast cover
Read more
Is Kawhi Leonard the NBA equivalent of Keyser Soze or the beneficiary of an instant gratification media driven society? I have no idea but its 3AM on the East Coast and I need to get some sleep. The Clippers have landed Kawhi Leonard by pulling off a monster trade with the Oklahoma City Thunder to acquire Paul George in exchange for FIVE 1st round picks (OKC will look like geniuses if Sam Presti stays around long enough to use all these picks), Danilo Galinari, and Shai Gilgeous Alexander. Win-win trade on both sides. This is as almost as massive a defeat imaginable for the Lakers and its not even close because the shoe has yet to drop if Anthony Davis has second thoughts at some point this season.

I break down the debacle that was the UFC debut on ESPN last night with the star attraction (TJ Dillashaw now known as Dillasalt) getting his rear end handed to him in under a minute and complains that it was a complete screwjob while threatening the referee. Total class act that somehow overshadowed the sideshow that is Greg Hardy. Plus I go over my predictions for the NFC and AFC title games and how I believe it is inevitable that we see Tom Brady in the Superbowl yet again.

As #KawhiWatch extends into the holiday we are still no closer to finding out where the balance of power will be in the upcoming NBA season. I give my thoughts on the situation and how little we truly know about Kawhi if some of these rumors about his meetings with the Lakers, Clippers, and Raptors are true. Also in today's show somehow the Knicks found yet another way into the current news cycle with a new story that epitomizes the ineptitude of the organization (shocker I know).
