Welcome back to CSPN’s Know the Score !
This week, our panel discusses the many athletes & sports figures speaking out on social issues of late, highlighted by quotes from Michael Jordan and Richard Sherman. Then, some shenanigans during the training camp period of the NFL, including Peyton Manning “cleared” of steroid allegations, Dallas suspending another player, and the Jets finally signing their holdout QB Fitzpatrick to a deal. Finally, we go around the rest of the sports world, from MLB trade deadline moves to boos for Durant and retirement for Knicks “legend” Amare Stoudemire.
All of this, plus our nominees for the weekly #KTSPod awards. Cast your votes on twitter using the hashtag #KTSPolls.
