Scott Soshnick, Eben Novy-Williams and Michael Barr discuss a number of topics related to the business of sports, including the French Open’s decision to bar Serena Williams from wearing a black, full-body outfit that’s known as a Catsuit. French Tennis Federation President Bernard Giudicelli told Tennis Magazine that one must respect the game and the place. Williams sponsor Nike responded in an ad, saying "You can take the superhero out of her costume, but you can never take away her superpowers." Also discussed are radio host Mike Francesa’s new digital offering, and one company’s decision to drop its sponsorship of a race car driver in response to comments allegedly made by his father decades ago.
