SI True Crime returns with an all new story for Season 2: Lateral Damage. It is the story of Mariet Ford, who tossed the most unlikely lateral in the most unlikely play in college football history. In 1982, Cal scored the winning touchdown on a last second, five-lateral bonanza against Stanford's team and the entire marching band. It was a moment of pure joy. Which makes the coda to it seem even darker. Fifteen years later, Mariet Ford was arrested for murdering his family. Writer S.L Price first reported on the story in 1997, but the story never ran. Now, twenty-two years later, Price is returning to the case.

Season 1 was Fall of a Titan: July 4, 2009. Former NFL quarterback Steve McNair is found murdered in his Nashville condo. After just four days of investigating it was ruled a murder-suicide. But what if it wasn’t? Over the course of this nine-part series, we’ll guide you through the McNair case, reviewing the findings and re-examining crucial details in a new light.

Good

It’s a good podcast. Look forward to more from him. As for the facts, just no there, there. Sad case. The wife was left with a mess financially, the kids come first. Sorry Mom!

Very interesting, I’ve lived in Nashville all my life. Can remember like it was yesterday seeing the news cast that Steve McNair was found dead. Not knowing any of this information other than what the News was putting out, it really makes you wonder. Just on a thought that I had seeing and stuck with me all these years. How hardened a family member showed themselves. At that moment made me think...they possibly had been a part in his demise. Yeah, They had good reason not to show emotion, but you don’t have to say a word to show how you truly feel.

Leaves too much out

This leaves too much info out. Like the texts. She was clearly spiraling more than this podcast lets on. It also ignores the other lover being followed by a black SUV. When you put all that together, it makes a lot more sense.
