Episode 207: INSIDE the Jim Harbaugh Deal

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

  • As Ohio State and Alabama go at it for the national title, WE look into a local college football story:
  • The Jim Harbaugh contract extension. U-M reporter/podcaster Michael Spath takes us behind the scenes!
  • A big football gambler? Or just nothing better to do during the pandemic? You REALLY watched ALL those playoff games?
  • If the former Cleveland Clowns can get to the NFL post-season, can the LIONS be far behind? 
  • Bob provides a primer on how NOT to run an NFL team via a franchise even worse than the FL’s!
  • The Pistons are off to a brutal start, but Tom Gores worry? He’s about to make more billions on PAY TOILETS!
  • Yes, we all were outraged over the storming of the U.S. Capitol, yet the NBA’s chief KNUCKLEHEAD is taking it too far.
  • And speaking of “knuckleheads,” how about James Harden and what one NBA all-time great said about HIM?
  • It’s a Big Week in the Big 14! At least for Michigan and Michigan State. The boys sing Juwan’s praises.
  • Tigers fans say “good riddance” to two guys who’ve tormented them in recent years.
  • While Denny says good-bye to Tommy LaSorda AND comments on MLB’s new pitching scandal.
  • Those stories, the Red Wings are BACK, YOUR mailbag and much more — right here!

Episode 101: The Boys Go Back on Their Word — and WON’T Apologize!

Trevor Lawrence about to throw football from right hand.

Let me tell you, it’s not true.

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

  • We made a pact never to discuss politics or religion on our show. Thanks to CLEMSON, Eli, Denny and Bob BREAK it!  
  • The NFL wildcard games are set, so is college football’s national title game. Is Denny LOSING it? He damns LSU with faint praise!
  • Were you rooting, as ALL Big Ten fans SHOULD be, for Ohio State against Clemson? Many jealous M types weren’t!
  • How about the scintillating MSU/Wake Forest game? Following THAT snoozer, Mark Dantonio questions persist.
  • The FL’s humiliated, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory in the finale. Incredibly, one Lion is HAPPY. You won’t believe WHY!
  • New Year, Schmoo Year! Expect more of the same in 2020 from the Pathetic Pistons AND The Detroit Dead Wings.
  • Columbus coach John Tortorella has another meltdown, this time over ANOTHER bad official’s call. Had enough yet?
  • Michigan and Michigan State basketball clash this Sunday. Why on EARTH should M be without its best player?!
  • 2020 — the year of sports gambling? Noted expert, attorney Dan Wallach, is on our next show. If YOU gamble, don’t miss it!
  • Those stories, YOUR weekly mailbag and much more right here.

Episode 64: The Legend of Ron LeFlore? You Ain’t Heard THESE Stories!

Ron LeFlore on cover of The Sporting News

He learned baseball just to get out of prison.

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

  • Afraid of injury, superstars are now sitting out the entire pre-season — yet the shameless NFL is charging fans full price anyway?
  • The Raiders have issued Bonehead Brown an ultimatum: “all-in or all-out!”
  • There was only one Joe Namath, but Bob has his OWN “guarantees” about Michigan football this year.
  • Tiger and Phil looking more and more like they’re done. Next stop Senior’s Tour? Would Tiger play on it?
  • So how’s Nick Castellanos doing in Chicago? You don’t want to know.
  • And, speaking of the Cubs, Eli & Denny nearly come to BLOWS over an outrageous incident in a recent game!
  • “Two hot dogs and two — WHAT?!” Before a former Tigers star ventured out on the field?!
  • “Haters gonna hate,” as they say. Boy, do a couple of you hate Bob!
  • And Mike Tyson puts Eli to shame — or so he CLAIMS. Eli calls “bull-bleep!”
  • Those stories and much more right here!
