Long-time Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters Greg Eno and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks!
This week's topics include:
The Stat Guy, Siddy Hall, opens the show. He gives us his thoughts on Pistons' GM Troy Weaver's trade deadline moves - dealing for Marvin Bagley III while Jerami Grant remained a Piston.
According to Stephen A. Smith, the NBA dunk contest was a “national atrocity.” Hyperbole? Yes. But are All-Star events also boring and badly broken? Yes.
Wolverines head coach Juwan Howard was suspended for the remainder of the regular season after striking a Wisconsin assistant coach during a post-game handshake line argument.
Did Howard deserve to be fired? In any other line of work, yes. But things work differently in the world of big time sports.
The Beijing Winter Olympics were a cluster of bad TV ratings, drug controversies, empty stadiums, politics and Chinese sportswashing.
The player lockout continues. MLB owners refuse to negotiate in good faith, yet set a drop dead date for not missing regular season games. In other words, billionaires gonna billionaire and the player lockout continues.
Our local nightmare is over. Matthew Stafford and the Rams won the Super Bowl, the Lions end up with thew 2nd and 32nd picks in the 2022 draft. Lions fans can hopefully, finally, move on with their lives.
The guys also play The Birthday Game and name their respective Jerk of the Week.
