Dan Le Batard Goes Off On Clay Travis

“Hearing Le Batard spit fire during Thursday’s Local Hour podcast, it was obvious, we’re not in Disney World anymore.”

If you wondered all those months and years whether Dan Le Batard was telling the truth by saying ESPN gives him enough freedom to say what he wants – he wasn’t. 

Hearing Le Batard spit fire during Thursday’s Local Hour podcast, it was obvious, we’re not in Disney World anymore. ESPN and terrestrial radio gave Le Batard a great platform to build his brand, but it’s clear he’s more comfortable without both of them. 

Le Batard’s first target was renowned Trump supporter Clay Travis. After the embarrassing portrayal displayed by the United States Wednesday, Travis came out and acknowledged violence isn’t the answer, adding it’s time to move on from the Trump presidency. 

There’s the line of demarcation – Trump supporters attacking our country’s U.S. Capitol and attempts of violence against congress. But according to Le Batard, it’s too late.

“Finally our country’s leadership united against the monster because they were scared shitless of chickens coming home to roost,” Le Batard said Thursday. “This is what was wrought. This is what was going to get here because of everything you saw happening over the last 12 months to us and elsewhere because I’ve got something for that shitstain Clay Travis, who wants to sit it out now when he was having Trump on his infomercial podcast, Dixie Vodka cheap shit, just getting Trump to foment this base and then walks away and says, ‘Hey I never said anything about violence.’

“Nah man, nah, you guys did in all your code. I worried about the subtle guys who could do the Trump shit cause if you were willing to follow that Frankenstein shitbag to where you followed him? That’s what you get yesterday.”

Travis’ continuous defense of Trump wore thin on some in the last year. Thin enough that his critics weren’t ready to hear any semblance of resignation.

For years, Trump detractors like Le Batard viewed what happened Wednesday as the direction the country was heading. The mob was incited, domestic terrorists were poked and encouraged to follow their leader like a herd of sheep. For supporters of 45 to come out now and say, ‘but we didn’t mean violence!’ is too little too late for Le Batard. 

No Mickey Mouse branded muzzle, no shackles, no restrictions, no backlash. We don’t know where Le Batard’s next stop is, but at least for now, it’s freedom.

Julian Edelman Considers Himself A Pioneer

“I’ve been a football player since I was 8 years old, but I did have other interests. Now that I am done, I get to explore that.”

Since his playing days with the New England Patriots ended after the 2020 season, Julian Edelman has kept himself busy with his role on Inside the NFL and now co-hosting the Games with Names podcast with comedian Sam Morril. So, what was Edelman looking for with his post-football endeavors?

Edelman was a guest on the most-recent episode of the Half-Forgotten History podcast with Trey Wingo and he said that the vibe that Inside The NFL has with Phil Simms, James Brown, Brandon Marshall, Michael Irvin, and Ray Lewis was something that he was looking for.

“With Inside the NFL, I have those guys and there’s a camaraderie. We get to have that breaking bread and just locker room kind of vibe. On the podcast, it’s the same thing.”

The MVP of Super Bowl XLIII mentioned that the key to doing the things he does now in his post-career came from the way him and his team were able to use social media to build his own brand and help ease the transition from a playing career to a member of the media.

“When I retired, I was fortunate enough to put a good team around me for all of my off-the-field things. We built a brand through social media. Kind of pioneers of this whole thing with social and e-commerce and millennial/Gen-Z things. It helped me land a role on Inside the NFL and go and have an ability to start a podcast, Games With Names. It’s been good and it honestly helps with the transition.”

Now that Edelman’s playing days are in the past, he said that he now has the opportunity to do things that he was always interested in since he was a kid, but did not have the time for and he is grateful for the opportunities that the NFL has allowed him to have.

“I’ve been a football player since I was 8 years old, but I did have other interests. Now that I am done, I get to explore that. I am so grateful for football and for the game just because it has given me the opportunity to do things that are fun and amazing.”
