As the summer rolls on, so does SILVERMAN: On Sports.
Leading off tonight was former MLB player, Billy Bean. Bean retired rather than come out and as the Major League Baseball Ambassador of Inclusion he is working to make sure baseball is doing everything it can to make the game for accepting for everyone. Billy was open and candid about his career and the future of equal rights in the game.
Chip Towers has been covering the University of Georgia for a long time. During his tenure, he has seen a lot of changes to the program as well as changes to the business of college athletics. I wanted to have Chip on to discuss how head coach Mark Richt is running his team with honor as well as discipline. A number of Georgia players have been dismissed because of team violations and Towers help me understand why and how Richt does it and why other schools don’t.
Barry Barnes of LockerReport.com covers the Baltimore Ravens. So who better to bring onto the show to discuss the two-game suspension Ray Rice received for domestic abuse. I don’t agree with the length of the punishment and I had a serious rant against the NFL. Check it out.
The Strikers are now three games into their fall season in the NASL and tonight I brought midfielder Manny Gonzalez into the Caddyshack for SILVERMAN: On Strikers. Manny was a great guest discussing the new 4-4-2 formation for the team as well as 1-1 draw versus the New York Cosmos last Saturday night at Lockhart. The Lads from Lauderdale played hard and got a well earned point on the night.
