Scott Soshnick, Michael Barr and Eben Novy-Williams discuss a host of issues related to the business of sports, including the release and pending suspension of former Kansas City Chiefs star running back Kareem Hunt. A surveillance video released a few days ago shows Hunt pushing and kicking a young woman in a Cleveland hotel, and the fallout has draw comparisons to the NFL’s mishandling of a similar incident involving Ray Rice back in 2014. Also discussed on the podcast is Fanduel’s decision to pay out bettors who back the University of Alabama to win the College Football Playoff, and a new partnership between Fanatics and Overwatch League, the first foray into esports for the largest seller of licensed sports merchandise.
