After a week off we are back for another edition of the Sports Media Weekly Podcast.
The big story on the table, of course, was “The Decision”. The three of us take a look at how the event was handled by all parties and the dangerous precedent it may set for the future. Can you say Brett Favre?
We also talk about ESPN’s ratings success for the World Cup and the declining numbers for Fox and ESPN for the MLB All-Star festivities.
We also spend some time with Barry talking about the sports media landscape in Dallas. Specifically, how the impact ESPN Dallas has on the media scene and how the FSN Southwest covered the incident last week where a fan fell from a top deck of the Ballpark at Arlington.
We also ask Barry about the similarities between Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones and the late Yankees owner George Steinbrenner.
