We look at a number of heel turns in the world of sports business. First up is the people's champ of most despised villains Dan Snyder, as we head to SnyderWorld where Mr. Snyder is dodging congress and backsliding on stadium locales. Could the chance to sell for $5B+ entice him? The Broncos just established a new first floor in NFL franchise valuations. Next we have Vince McMahon, long experienced in playing the villain in his own league, exiting day to day control of the team as he is under investigation for paying a lover with company money. It's all playing out with a jester's flair for the ridiculous. We wrap with the Saudi Golf league, LIV and the recent players to bolt the PGA for new riches. Listen until end to learn what “LIV” stands for (or just Google it.)

We got ourselves an emergent theme today people: The public is tired of funding sports projects. First up we stop by the endless content generator that is Top Commander Daniel Snyder and his quest to have some governmental body fund his new stadium. The Panthers needed a practice facility upgrade so they hoped the 4th biggest city in the Charlotte market would fund it. Bankruptcy, failed bonds and no new facility are the result. We end marveling at the transparency of Ohio St's Ryan Day saying "We need $13M for NILs to be competitive." Respect.

From league hopping, to court cases to $40M in gambling losses, we hit it all. Next we follow the ongoing saga of what NIL rules are doing to college sports, this time through a Fight Night Battle Royale between Nick Saban, Jimbo Fisher with surprise guest, Neon Deon Sanders. A college football fight for the ages. We finish checking in on the status of minor league football in America, which is basically just checking out what The Rock is cooking.
