October 7: Show In Review
Bob and Matt react to the breaking news that the Flyers have fired head coach Peter Laviolette with NHL on TSN Analyst Darren Pang and Anwar Richardson of Yahoo! Sports and Dan Flynn, Author of “The War on Football” discuss the Broncos being 28-point favourites over the Jaguars and the issue of head injuries in the NFL.
Anwar Richardson, Yahoo! Sports
The Jaguars at the Broncos is going to be an interesting case study, as this is the highest point spread we’ve seen in an NFL game. The Jags are so inept as an organization, but it goes more towards the extremely impressive offensive start that we’ve seen with Peyton and the Broncos that makes this game compelling.
Darren Pang, NHL on TSN Analyst
It’s up to the players to play, and if they play well, the coach will look good. Internally, if you have a good internal group of players who stick together, the coach will survive, but often times, as it was with Laviolette, the players can make determinations easier. The structure and system of the Flyers is questionable, so it’s difficult to ascertain if this is a team that can turn it around.
Dan Flynn, Author of “The War on Football”
He argues that football isn’t as safe as the media and scientific community have made it out to be. The former player’s brains chosen were biased since they died of adverse circumstances. In short, today’s society has become increasingly soft.
