Is NBA Commissioner Adam Silver correct in his concern about players being lonely and isolated? For that matter, why should the fans care so long as their team is winning? Ed Berliner is joined on "The Fastest Show in Sports" by Kevin Winter from ESPN Radio as we bounce the roundball from so-called "lonely" millionaires living in their own private social media worlds while making even more money, the single thread that ties players of the 80's with players of today, another deserved shot at the dumpster fire LeBron James is responsible for in Los Angeles including why it happened, and the only logical choice Zion Williamson should be making at Duke before the NCAA Tournament begins. As usual, in professional sports, it's all about following the money.
Bryce Harper becomes the wealthiest player EVER in the 4 major sports and people can’t stop whining about it because fans don’t understand MLB money. The NFL Scouting Combine is where stats are no longer the most important thing. The LA Lakers are a dumpster fire with LeBron James no longer the NBA God players want to follow. Ed Berliner welcomes “The Smartest Man in the Room” Joe Casale as we dig deep and start more than a few arguments.
It's not that long ago NASCAR was one of the most powerful sports in America, even perhaps one day rivaling the NFL and MLB as the most popular spectator sports. For a time, they were right on the precipice. Then, BOOM. Dropped right off the ledge and now trying to rebuild. But is it simply too late for these good old boys? Ed Berliner is joined by veteran NASCAR reporter Bob Pockrass from "FOX Sports" to examine what went wrong, why it happened, and if yet another revamping of the sport is in time to save it from being just another also-ran.
When the Cleveland Browns signed Kareem Hunt to a contract, all Hell broke loose as people were incensed that the guy who assaulted a woman was brought back into the NFL. But why aren't more women upset at this turn of events, and what does Colin Kaepernick have to do with it? Join Ed Berliner and Joe Casale for their controversial takes on why this proves yet again the deaf ears that personify the NFL.
Listen up, sports faithful. That "trusted sports media" isn't telling you everything. In fact, they're in bed with the leagues and the teams to skew everything exactly as they want you to hear it. Look no further than CBS failing to note Julian Edelman's PED suspension earlier in the season, and how ESPN is in cahoots with the NBA in helping Lakers boss Magic Johnson tamper with Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans. So the question is, do you care? Join Ed Berliner and "The Smartest Man in the Room", attorney and former agent Joe Casale, as they deal in plenty of conclusions the media, and the leagues, would prefer you not consider.
Thanks to junk science, dis-proven theories, powerful and well funded political lobbies, and physicians failing to follow simple rules, America is being put in critical danger of a pandemic because of "anti-vaxxers", those who refuse to vaccinate their children from diseases such as measles. Dr. Peter Hotez is Director of the Texas Children's Hospital Center for Vaccine Development at Baylor College of Medicine, and has emerged as an author and voice of reason in the fight against the delusional individuals. Host Ed Berliner digs into the issue, threats the doctor has received, and what steps must be taken to try and stop this burgeoning health crisis.
Are Democrats on the verge of floundering yet again when it comes to a Presidential election? Will former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz destroy the Left's 2020 hopes, or is he the catalyst they need? And why should anyone pay any attention to anything Donald Trump puts in Twitter form? Ed Berliner is joined by political commentator and true Centrist Rick Ungar for a rational political discussion aimed right down the middle honestly without fear or favor.
Despite the weak apology, the NFL is still stuck with the quagmire of their own making. A Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams that many believe will be forever tainted. Which also leads to talk of the Pats dynasty and whether their history of alleged cheating taints their history. Oh, and what about those Saints fans lawsuits and the sideshow that has created? Ed Berliner is joined on this episode of "The Fastest Show in Sports" by "The Smartest Man in the Room", attorney and former player agent Joe Casale, as they turn up the heat on the days before Super Bowl 53.
The NFL's silence on what happened in the NFC Title game has plenty of people, including attorney and former player agent Joe Casale, wondering about a level of subterfuge and corruption within the NFL.
Urban Meyer has now been caught in lies at both the University of Florida and Ohio State University. It's not really shocking for a college football coach to so casually toss integrity and honesty to the wind these days. What is more than a little alarming are the apologists who creep from under the woodwork to defend this con man. On this edition of "The Fastest Show in Sports", Ed Berliner is joined by attorney and former player agent Joe Casale, "The Smarter Man in the Room", digging into what makes this all so tragic, how it can ever be fixed (if at all), and the lemmings-filled bubble plenty of fans refuse to leave.
