Episode 62: “Student-Athlete!” And He’s Being Punished for It?!

How can you punish scholarship???

It’s the latest No Filter Sports Podcast with Eli Zaret, Denny McLain and Bob Page.

  • (GULP!) $30,000,000 a year — and it’s (GULP!) not enough dough?! 
  • Eli seems fascinated by the new season of HBO’s “Hard Knocks.” Bob is decidedly not.
  • After just one pre-season game the NFL’s list of seriously injured players is already high. 
  • Plus, helmet controversy, replay on pass interference — and will YOU be able to legally gamble on football soon? 
  • Even small local newspapers are ganging up on the Toothless Tigers now!
  • And how’s this for a switch? A great prep football player ruled ineligible because he STUDIES too much?! 
  • Those stories, the boys with some more of those old baseball stories for you and much more right here!

EPISODE 55: Uh, Excuse Me, Sir, HOW Much for Your Autograph?!

There’s a sucker born every minute

Welcome to No Filter Sports Podcast with Eli Zaret, Denny McLain and Bob Page!

  • Busy boys! Today Eli works from Motown, Bob from NYC and Denny from Cooperstown! 
  • Another ex-pitching star is there with him for this weekend’s Hall of Fame inductions and Denny is REALLY unhappy with him. 
  • This year’s inductees? It’s more of the same: who actually belongs in the HOF and who doesn’t?
  • And how come a particular pitcher from Denny’s beloved Cubs isn’t in? He only went 53-16 one season!
  • At the risk of putting you to sleep, the latest from the boys on the Disastrous Detroit Tigers.
  • The stuffy “Open Chahmmmpionship” is underway. WE call it (gasp!) The BRITISH Open.
  • Those stories, the plight of sports’ play-by-play guys and much more right here!
