    Sports Lawyer Dan Lust on Deshaun Watson, Tony Buzbee, and Litigating High Profile Cases in the Media

    Sports Lawyer Dan Lust on Deshaun Watson, Tony Buzbee, and Litigating High Profile Cases in the Media

    Our first ever repeat guest is none other than sports attorney and podcast host Dan Lust (@sportslawlust) who joined us to discuss Deshaun Watson and litigating litigating high profile cases in the press.
    We recorded on Monday morning and tackled all of the major angles of the ongoing sexual assault allegations brought against Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson. Although there were inevitably going to be updates between Monday and Wednesday, we wanted to address the tactics deployed by plaintiff's attorney Tony Buzbee, and why the victims in this case might be harmed by his decision to play the case out in the press and social media.
    Dan also takes us back through the Zion Williamson legal proceedings from 2020, including a bizarre discovery period that was highly publicized by agent Gina Ford's legal team, and how that situation compares and contrasts with how Buzbee is approaching his cases against Watson.
    Dan Lust is a Sports Attorney at Geragos and Co-Host of the Conduct Detrimental Podcast, and who can be heard regularly across ESPN, SiriusXM, CBS & FOX Sports.

    Former Division 1 Basketball Player Tawanya Herbert on Being Smart, Southern, Black, Empathetic, & Politically Outspoken

    Former Division 1 Basketball Player Tawanya Herbert on Being Smart, Southern, Black, Empathetic, & Politically Outspoken

    We had the privilege of talking with a leader in her community named Tawanya Herbert. After playing four years of college basketball at Iowa State in the 1990s, Tawanya spent the past couple decades advocating for the needs of others within the healthcare and wellness space, eventually leading her to volunteer in progressive politics in her home state of South Carolina.

    Jaime M. Miettinen on the Youth Sports Industrial Complex

    Jaime M. Miettinen on the Youth Sports Industrial Complex

    We were grateful to be in conversation with Jaime M. Miettinen — or you may recognize better by her social media alias "SportsLawBlonde" — as we discuss a large, bleak, and systemic issue: the Youth Sports Industrial Complex. Many economists believe this complex web of private interests is a marketplace already worth about $20 billion and growing in the wake of a pandemic that has been catastrophic to the public infrastructure.

    Basketball Hall of Famer Rick Barry on Making Sports Law and Broadcasting History

    Basketball Hall of Famer Rick Barry on Making Sports Law and Broadcasting History

    Despite being knee deep in preparations for the 2021 Tulane Pro Basketball Negotiation Competition, we were thrilled to be joined by Basketball Hall of Famer forward Rick Barry. Our wide-ranging and lively discussion includes analysis of the greatest players of all-time, how the game is different than it used to be, and why players have so much more leverage in negotiations today than in the 1960s and 70s.

    Uncertain Future of NCAA, Journalism, & Black Head Coaches with Patrick Hruby

    Uncertain Future of NCAA, Journalism, & Black Head Coaches with Patrick Hruby

    Seeing as we were joined by prolific sports and political journalist Patrick Hruby, we decided to dive into several significant topics. After spending about the first half hour forecasting what 2021 might look like for NCAA athletics — including what a conservative 6-3 edge Supreme Court implies could happen in the "amateurism" cases — we move to discussing Hruby's research on negative outcomes for black coaches in the NFL.
    We recorded this conversation weeks before the EA Sports relaunch announcement in early February. Interestingly, however, we steer the conversation toward the Ed O'Bannon case and the video game company's decision to settle with the players for $40 million almost a decade ago. Look for that part of the conversation around 33:00.

Professional, Informative, and Fun

Anyone can talk about what happens between the lines, but these two really take it to the next level through their research and knowledge. And their chemistry is off the charts. Cannot recommend S&S highly enough.
