    THE BLEACHER BRIEFINGS: 2014 Sochi Winter Games, NBA All-Star Weekend & Controversial Officiating on the College Hardwood

    THE BLEACHER BRIEFINGS: 2014 Sochi Winter Games, NBA All-Star Weekend & Controversial Officiating on the College Hardwood

    In this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast, we discuss major storylines from the Winter Olympics in Sochi, the NBA's All-Star gala, and contentious calls in college basketball games from over the weekend!

    - Down the Homestetch in Sochi: With the conclusion of the XXII Winter Games now in sight, we break down some of the highs and lows for Team USA entering the final week of competition, and take a closer look at the staple of every Winter Olympics; Men's Ice Hockey.

    - Big Easy Welcomes the Stars: The NBA's hierarchy was in full mass in New Orleans on Saturday and Sunday, with the Smoothie King Center playing host to the annual Skills Challenge, Three-Point Shootout, Slam Dunk Contest and All-Star Game. Was the overall event a hit or miss? Did the right man take home the game's Most Valuable Player Award? Hear our take.

    - Poor Officiating Takes Center Stage in College Hoops: Over the weekend, glaring mistakes by officials in both the Maryland-Duke and Arizona-Arizona State game stained the final outcome of each. Was this a precursor to the type of "madness" we're in for next month? We'll tell you.

    Plus:

    We debate just how historically bad this year's Slam Dunk Contest truly was, as well as share our opinions on the results from ESPN's anonymous survey of NFL players regarding their thoughts on having a gay teammate, and the type of impact the loss of pitcher Ryan Dempster has on Boston's chances of repeating as World Series champions!

    THE BLEACHER BRIEFINGS: Sam Comes Out, Smart Hits the Stands & Rodriguez Finally Folds

    THE BLEACHER BRIEFINGS: Sam Comes Out, Smart Hits the Stands & Rodriguez Finally Folds

    In this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast, we discuss All-American Michael Sam's monumental announcement on ESPN's Outside the Lines, Marcus Smart's physical altercation with a Texas Tech fan in the stands Saturday, and Alex Rodriguez's decision to drop his lawsuit against Major League Baseball!

    - NFL Prospect Reveals He's Gay: In an interview with Chris Connelly on Sunday, SEC Co-Defensive Player of the Year Michael Sam stated publicly what his teammates and coaches at Mizzou have known since August; "I am an openly proud gay man." What type of impact could Sam's announcement have on where he's selected in the draft, and is the National Football League really ready for an openly gay man in the locker rooms? Hear our take.

    - Smart Loses His Cool Yet Again: Late in the game in a loss to the Red Raiders Saturday, Oklahoma State All-American Marcus Smart entered the stands and shoved a fan after the man heckled him following a foul under the basket. Considering this wasn't the first time Smart did something ill-tempered on the court this year, was the three-game suspension he received enough, and will the reputation he's developed come back to haunt him when the NBA Draft rolls around in June? We'll tell you.

    - MLB Finally Breaks A-Rod: Last Friday, lawyers representing Alex Rodriguez filed a notice of dismissal in his lawsuit against Major League Baseball, essentially ending one of the most controversial chapters in the history of the league's performance-enhancing drug program. After months of proclaiming his innocence and deeming the investigation a "witch hunt," was A-Rod's decision surprising? We break it down.

    Plus:

    We debate whether or not the 76ers are purposely tanking this season, and if head coach Maurice Cheeks got a raw deal with the Pistons!

    THE BLEACHER BRIEFINGS: Super Bowl XLVIII Recap Show

    THE BLEACHER BRIEFINGS: Super Bowl XLVIII Recap Show

    In this week's edition of The Bleacher Briefings podcast, we recap Seattle's convincing victory over the Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII, debate which team has a better chance at a return trip to the Big Game next season, and determine what Peyton Manning's lasting legacy will be once and for all!

    - Seahawks Cruise to a Title: Super Bowl XLVIII was supposed to be a coronation for the greatest offense in the history of the NFL, but the wrong team showed up. Instead, Seattle laid claim to a historical distinction of their own; best defense ever. How did the Seahawks manage to derail Denver's high-powered offense en route to the franchise's first Lombardi Trophy? Hear our take.

    - See You in Arizona?: From start to finish, the Seahawks and Broncos were the two best teams in the National Football League this season. But which squad is in the best position for a return trip to Super Sunday next year and why? We'll tell you.

    - A Legacy in Limbo?: Peyton Manning has been widely regarded as the greatest regular season quarterback of all time for several years now. Unfortunately for No. 18, playoff games aren't played during the regular season. What, if anything, did Sunday's demoralizing defeat do to Peyton's lasting legacy in the overall big picture? Our answers may surprise you.

    Plus:

    We decide if Malcolm Smith was the right choice for Super Bowl MVP honors, and grade both the commercials and halftime show from the single biggest sporting event of the year!

Smart fans only

Just like how Peyton manning is the greatest qb of all time and how lebron james dominates the NBA the breifings is the best sports podcast around. It's not for the common silly fan but for the rational fan who's open minded. A good 25 minutes of good sports talk.
