With NFL players just days away from officially reporting to training camp, a financial storm looms on the horizon as NFL owners and players are potentially aligned to duke it out over money and pro-rated pay just as the MLB and its players did earlier in the summer.
Terez Paylor and Charles Robinson look at the major obstacles that stand in the way of labor peace and a 2020 season on today's podcast.
First, they talk about the Washington Football Team's official temporary name and uniform dropping just as the NHL decides to release the Kraken. (0:20)
They also discuss New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, current ambassador to the United Kingdom, who has been in the news lately for alleged racist and sexist remarks and the lush recent history of NFL owners saying and doing the wrong thing. (7:15)
Later, they discuss how the owners are preparing to play hardball against the players in order to secure a financial agreement before a 2020 season that will assuredly see a loss in revenue. (16:55)
Terez and Charles also discuss the recent extension of Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer and what the Vikes and Kirk Cousins need to do to get over the top and win that first Super Bowl. (35:55).
Finally, the guys discuss the impressive progress the Miami Dolphins have made in just one year under head coach Brian Flores and how the Fins could find themselves competing for a playoff spot very soon. (50:15)
