MTR Network (sports)

Big Four WWE season means I get to dedicate an entire podcast to the world of sports entertainment, I mean professional wrestling, and who better to help us navigate the upcoming Royal Rumble than three true friends of the show. Sam Franco is back, and joined by Rich Fann and Cam Hawkins of PWTorch to help break down the WWE's Raw25 'celebration' and more. Come for the love of rasslin, stay for a master class in fantasy booking.

  • Still not a Rumble guy - PUT DOWN THE PITCHFORKS.
  • Raw 25, and the Manhattan Center Comic Con.
  • WWE: Departures, Arrivals, and Shocking Returns.
  • NJPW's Wrestle Kingdom 12, and the timelessness of Chris Jericho.
  • Is anyone else potentially #AllIn?
  • NXT Phily Card Breakdown
  • Handicapping the 2018 Royal Rumble - Men and Women

*We had a slight problem with the audio this episode. We will make sure its fixed next time*

It has been an absolutely insane week in sports, and I called in a real deal, no lie professional broadcaster in to help navigate the everything that went down. Sam Franco from 960 the Ref is back to help the NBA not screw up a potential money maker, make weirdly prescient predictions about the outcome of the Pats game (ugh) and dip into some listener mail regarding perhaps the greatest "When Football Quit You" story I've ever heard. We also take the time to get serious, as we discuss the inexcusable inaction of every level of authority with the tragedy coming out of the US Olympic Gymnastics team and the lack of coverage of the same.

Helluva a 5 days for your boy.

Trying to make sense of it all, we've called in Columbia legend* Barso to walk me through the Bulldogs and Falcons once again coming up short. Unfortunately, while blocking alongside me made him look good, no one could polish the turd that was this past 12 months as an Atlanta sports fan. From 28-3 to Atlanta losing their baseball team, to the events of Monday night and finally 4th and goal drops, good friends are there for you but great friends will make fun of your misfortune. Apparently Barso is a great friend. Ugh.

Ah, sports heartbreak. We meet again.

One day, a man will rank all of the Atlanta sports losses on some sort of quantifiable scale. His results will be unbiased and meticulously researched, and I reserve the right to beat him to death with a tire iron. For the second time in 11 months, here we are again; me full of misery, processing in front of a microphone and reading listener emails to commiserate - but more usually - mock my pain.

NEW YEAR NEW ME!

Just kidding. 2018 is here, and it's still me. Which means, you get to listen to me cheer on the future National Champion Georgia Bulldogs for an hour alongside one of my oldest friends who took me to my very first UGA game many moons ago! We talk about Wright's journey to being a coach and athletic administrator, as well as UGA's win over Oklahoma, Alabama's suffocation of Clemson, and (sigh) UGA's last 4 meetings with Saban. Also, we look at the disappointing bowl season, the Falcon's win over the Rams, and Oakland going all in on some decent PR.

With our fearless host under the weather, this bonus episode of the podcast has two guests to help carry the load, Justin from ThreeFifs and Nata from UpRoxx, and the three of them break down real locker room talk as the #metoo movement hits sports. And it's about damn time. We talk about Jerry Richardson's 'decision' to sell the Panthers, wonder what else the NFL is scared of, and decry the culture that has victimized women for so long. If it can be destroyed by the light, then it needs to be brought into that light.

John Minus of the Decepticomics joins UDPod today, as we lean on his vault of knowledge from a lifetime of absorbing New York sports media. We talk about Stanton's kinda shady move to NYC, discover a well of hatred for Phil Jackson I didn't think was possible and decry the alleged poor treatment of an alleged good quarterback. Plus, I lie to one of my friends, we say happy trails to Devin Hester, and we follow the Ball family to Lithuania.

To be fair, Lavar did promise that all three of his sons would be pro basketball players. He never said in America.

This week, we've got MTR's own Ashanti to cover all the sports news that's out there. And there is a LOT, and it's always nice to get an outsider's perspective on these things. Sure, some of these things we cover feel like the sports business as usual, but it's nice to be reminded that sports business as usual can be pretty messed up sometimes.
