Long-time Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters Greg Eno and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks! Along with the Birthday Game and the Jerk of the Week, this week's topics include:
Gambling is becoming inseparable from sports media and pro leagues in ways we never would have expected. With sportsbooks and mobile apps now legal in Michigan, will we regret opening the gambling Pandora's Box?
The Seattle Mariners (now ex) team president and CEO said the inside words about ownership malfeasance out loud, giving the MLBPA all kinds of ammo for their upcoming CBA negotiations. Fans need to remember, billionaires do not care about you or your fandom
The more the Detroit Tigers kowtow to Miguel Cabrera despite his lack of production, inability to stay healthy, and off field BS, the harder it becomes to root for him
In news everyone saw coming, but honestly didn’t expect for another year, the Detroit Pistons and Blake Griffin agree to part ways. Though if Griffin REALLY wanted to leave for a contender as quickly as possible, he could decline his $39 million player contract option....but that's a step too far
Kenny Golladay and Detroit Lions reach a crossroads. Should he be given the franchise tag, signed to a long-term deal, or allowed to walk?
Greg has major issues with Kevin Mather and Mariners ownership, They may claim he doesn't represent the "values" of the team, but of course he does. Meanwhile Al may feel bad for Tiger Woods suffering serious leg injuries in a car accident, but did every single news channel have to give the story wall-to-wall coverage comparable to the capitol insurrection?
