The Vexed Intellects Podcast

Last week the internet was sent into a frenzy after Netflix released Dave Chappelle's latest comedy special "The Closer". Lines were drawn in the sand (on social media) as people debated whether the famed comedian was 'punching down' at trans people. For some, the overarching theme of the special was to point out the hypocrisy of selective outrage & "woke" culture. Chappelle made the argument that the plight of other marginalized groups are often prioritized over that of Black, brown, & indigenous people. Ironically that theory was quickly put to the test after a New York times report revealed several email messages dating back as far as 2011 where Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden made some disparaging remarks about NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith's physical appearance (big lips trope) & competency (Dumb). No disciplinary action was taken in the days following the release of the report even as it was widely circulated in articles & discussed on news programs. It was only after the revelation that Gruden had also made homophobic & misogynistic remarks about NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, openly gay player Michael Sam, & others that the Raiders organization "allowed" the now disgraced coach to resign on his own volition. Was Chappelle right? Does a marginalized group hierarchy exist in which certain groups get prioritized over others, & if so, who gets to decide the pecking order? This week the Vexed Intellects address the complex questions surrounding this conundrum. Plus... The Kyrie Irving vaccination saga, the embarrassing defeat of Deontay Wilder, Jamie Lee Curtis comments on plastic surgery wiping out generations of beauty, modern female intrasexual competition, the expectations of return on investment in dating, & a woman who sued the insurance company of a guy she caught an STD from during a passionate backseat romp. These topics & much, much, more on this episode of The Vexed Intellects! #getvexed & enjoy!

   Jon Gruden was dumb to write what he wrote in emails to a Washington Redskins executive 10 years ago, no arguing that.  But if the NFL has 650,000 emails from the Washington Team as they investigate misconduct in the workplace, how is it they selectively leak Gruden emails to the Wall Street Journal?  There has to be more here, or this looks really petty from Roger Goodell.    The Chiefs have had a lot to say about their crappy play this year, but haven't really done anything about it.  I'm sick of style over substance.  Show me something, I don't want to hear about re-evaluating and gut checks.    And it just gets better and better with VP Harris.  She does a video with NASA where the kids in the production are hired actors to look interested.  And the production company that made it is from Canada and they are called Sinking Ship Entertainment.  How appropriate.

Today's word of the day is ‘megalomaniac' as in the NFL as in new rules were released via a memo from the league that will prevent the media from entering the locker room. Team-affiliated media members are allowed in. All other media members, sorry. Why would Roger Goodell allow this? (12:55) So You Wanna Talk To Samson!? Someone asked me about Nerlens Noel suing agent Rich Paul of Klutch Sports. Uh oh. Paul is the agent and best friend of LeBron James. Klutch runs the league. (28:20) Review: Malice at the Palace. (37:45) NPPOD. (40:50) The St. Louis Cardinals made some news yesterday. Ace Jack Flaherty left the game with injury and it looks like it's a shoulder problem. The team also signed Yadier Molina to another 1-year, $10M deal. A farewell tour. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

You know football is around the corner when the dulcet tones of Liev Schreiber and Hard Knocks grace our television screens once again. Charles Robinson is joined by Yahoo's Jay Busbee for a conversation about a number of league topics, the first and foremost being Jerry Jones' sodium intake, Dak Prescott's ire at his early-camp shoulder strain, Austin Powers references and the rest of the action from episode one of this season's Hard Knocks (5:45).Next, Charles & Jay talk about the latest on Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson, and why the team isn't looking to trade him presently as they've only received low-ball offers from the rest of the league (13:00).Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen inked a 6-year extension with the team, paying him roughly $43 million per year. Charles breaks down what this means for the two other major QBs in the 2018 draft class, Baker Mayfield and Lamar Jackson, and why the Browns have a lot to think about before signing the former first overall pick to a similarly lofty deal (21:00).In the second half of the podcast, Charles talks about his major takeaways after spending time in training camp with the Cleveland Browns (32:30), New York Jets (40:15), Philadelphia Eagles (49:15) and Carolina Panthers (55:20).Finally, the guys close out the show discussing Peyton Manning's Hall of Fame acceptance speech and why The Sheriff could be on the shortlist to replace Roger Goodell as league commissioner in the late 2020s (1:06:30).Stay up to date with the latest NFL news and coverage from Yahoo Sports on Twitter @YahooSportsNFL.Follow Charles @CharlesRobinsonPlease support Terez Paylor's legacy by supporting the Terez A.

First and foremost, I cannot thank the people of Sacramento enough.  I was in town for an event and everywhere I went I was greeted with recognition, excitement and disappointment I was no longer doing my thing.  The comments were fabulous.  Thank you again.  We're also going to dive head first into some optionable items you have to make better assessment of your favorite players, teams and sports when it comes to players of different sexual orientation.  It's a lot today but on the heels of the rant, this podcast made sense to revisit the narrative on Carl Nassib, Roger Goodell's grandstanding of the announcement and the reality that so many other players are quietly applauding.  We'll cover a lot of ground so fasten your seatbelts and you're ready to go!
