    MLB Negotiations Continue, Thomas Jones Interview (Sports Talk Chicago / WCKG 6-3-20)

    On today’s show, I examine the most recent developments in the MLB labor negotiations, including the owners’ latest proposal, which pays players the entirety of their prorated salaries while shortening the season to 50 games. I believe that this is the best possible deal for all sides involved, and should help to resume baseball for […]

    New NBA Season Details, Ryan Dempster Interview (Sports Talk Chicago / WCKG 6-2-20)

    On today’s show, I examine new details about the NBA’s path to resumption, including their plan for the end of the season. The logical solution is to either take the top sixteen teams already in, or have a play-in tournament, similar to the NHL. The association, should not, however, force teams to play meaningless basketball […]

    Blackhawks Make The Playoffs, Phil Rogers Interview (Sports Talk Chicago / WCKG 6-1-20)

    On today’s show, I break down the Blackhawks’ surprising playoff berth, along with the NHL’s proposal to resume the 2019-20 season. Although some may argue that the NHL’s “play-in” format is pointless, I believe it will lead to more interest in the sport, while actually benefitting players the most. I also catch up with Phil […]

    MLB Labor Dispute Update, Joe Davis Interview (Sports Talk Chicago / WCKG 5-29-20)

    On today’s show, I break down the latest update in the MLB labor dispute, including the recent economic proposal brought forth by the owners. The current plan sees top earners taking pay cuts in excess of sixty percent, in some cases, making it virtually impossible for players to agree to this deal. I also catch […]

    Michael Jordan’s Leaked Tapes, Devin Hester Interview (Sports Talk Chicago / WCKG 5-28-20)

    On today’s show, I examine the Michael Jordan leaked audio tapes, which reveal that he, in fact, left Isaiah Thomas off of the 1992 Dream Team. The tapes contradict what Jordan said in The Last Dance, which makes me wonder if other parts of the series are accurate. I also catch up with Devin Hester, […]

    Resuming the NBA Season, Scott Merkin Interview (Sports Talk Chicago / WCKG 5-27-20)

    On today’s show, I break down the NBA’s plan to resume the 2019-20 season, which involves all future games being played at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando. Although encouraging news at the outset, important details still have to be worked out, and player safety should be the Association’s top priority. I also […]

Great podcast and dedicated

Even though I didn’t know jon well when he started the podcast it was obvious he was going to put in the work. He started from the bottom and he keeps providing great content and continues to get entertaining guests on the show. Can’t wait to see him on ESPN one day.
