Julio Jones Prank Call?, TB Rays Owners’ Lawsuit, Moultrie-v...

Share Podcast:
The ROADMAP: 2:45 - Was Julio Jones ILLEGALLY RECORDED by Shannon Sharpe live on-air? If this wasn’t staged, a crime was committed. Simply put, Undisputed is filmed in California, which is one of the states that follows the "two-party consent" law. In these states, it’s a crime to record a private telephone call without the consent of all parties involved. Either way, reports are that the Atlanta Falcons and NFL are not happy with Fox Sports — we investigate the legitimacy and the potential fallout. 13:00 - New Lawsuit brought by Tampa Bay Rays Ownership — Minority owners of the team have filed a lawsuit alleging that Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg was involved in a fraudulent scheme by secretly paying himself while strategically withholding distributions, saddling the minority partners with massive tax obligations, pressuring some to sell shares, and transferring all the valuable assets into a new company he owned. And moreover, secretly negotiating a deal for the team to move to Montreal! We break it down. 25:01 - Olivia Moultrie takes on the NWSL — In 2003, Ohio State Star RB Maurice Clarett sued the NFL over a rule that prevented him from entering the Draft because he was too young. He lost. And now, Moultrie, a 15-year-old soccer phenom has sued the NWSL over a rule that similarly prevents her from entering the league... but she won! A Judge awarded her with a temporary restraining order this week, making her free to sign with any team. However, the looming CBA negotiation complicates matters. 34:28 - NIL Update / Paying College Athletes. As of July 1st, five states (Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, & New Mexico) are allowing in-state athletes to receive compensation. Two big college football powerhouses, Ohio & Texas, seem to be on the horizon of passing their own laws and joining the NIL conversation. We provide the latest and the impact of the looming Supreme Court decision in NCAA v. Alston. 42:36 - Deshaun Watson Update — a new case scheduling order dictates that Watson’s deposition cannot occur before February 22, 2022. We discuss the impact on settlement and the timeframe on potential criminal charges and an NFL suspension 45:05 - WHAT TO WATCH FOR: NBA Playoffs, Logan Paul & Conor McGregor Fights, the Drive to Survive on Ferrari’s Monaco Mishap, Sports Books *** Have a question or something you want us to cover next episode?
