Episode 228 of the Sports Media Podcast features two guests. First up is Yahoo Sports NFL writer Shalise Manza Young. She is followed by Boston Globe media writer and general columnist Chad Finn. In this podcast, Young discusses her excellent piece on independent arbitrator Sue L. Robinson’s decision on Browns quarterback Deshaun Watson; why the decision seems wholly inconsistent with Robinson’s own findings; the narrow definition of "violent" as defined in the decision; Manza Young’s argument that the decision “underscores to many of us, once again, how some people, even other women, perceive women as disposable, especially if they’re Black or brown or work in the service industry”; Watson being cheered at Browns camp; the NFL’s decision on the discipline imposed to the Dolphins for violations of NFL policies relating to the integrity of the game, and more. Finn and Deitsch discusses the coverage Bill Russell’s passing; the powerful words of Karen Russell, Bill’s daughter; Charles Barkley’s flirtation with LIV Golf; Amazon hiring Dude Perfect for an alternate telecast; whether there is a definitive NFL program or pregame show; how the league-owned networks cover challenging stories and more.
