Missed part of The Mariotti Show?
The Jay Mariotti Podcast for Monday, July 28: The NFL speaks on the Ray Rice case and, legally, the league has a point — Rice has not been convicted. So how could Goodell suspend Rice for a year when even the prosecutor didn’t require jail time? Shallow media people aren’t equipped to cover legal issues, unlike those of us who have had experience in these matters. Too many media assume complete guilt when they really don’t know and are trolling for attention and traffic. ESPN ordered Stephen A. Smith to read a scripted apology, or he would have been fired. Michelle Beadle was wrong for not calling Smith personally, as a colleague, instead choosing to tweet and misrepresent him. ESPN has embarrassed itself all the way around here. Cheers to Hall of Fame inductee Frank Thomas, who didn’t need juice in the PED era. David Price will not be traded, nor should he be.
The Mariotti Show streams live M-F noon to 3 ET.
