Saban Stuck In The Past Snitching On NIL
Presented by Gratwick. A huge new deal in the MLB has a stupid clause given by the team. Matt Harvey was slinging more than fastballs and the Orioles got sick of getting shelled so they decide to change their park, fair or baseball is just weird? Further evidence for the latter, Astros most homeruns in an inning, a no-hitter ends in a loss and Albert tried to pitch?! Nick Saban is trying to snitch on things that aren’t even illegal anymore. He’s just salty he lost out on Hunter, Jr. Is the NIL already off the rails or working in a positive way? Who’s on the NFL chopping block and would Baker’s career have been spared if the Browns had benched him during the season? Could Tom Brady save Baker? NFL free agent bargains left somehow leads to a deep discussion on the player archetype that is Patrick Beverly. NBA playoffs march on. SportsPlug Russ is both happy to be here, but getting nervous about the Mavs chances against the Warriors. The Heat will play tough, but they just don't have enough to survive a long series with the Celtics. A glimpse of hope on the horizon for Rockets fans after winning the draft lottery...
