Description

In this episode, the hosts breakdown the long-time sports mythology of Heroes and Villians, and the influence they may have on how fans and audiences treat the athletes themselves. The conversation shifts to the ever-present dangers social media now present to sports, by way of continued abuse and lack fo respect for the game itself. In this context, the hosts touch on how some professional players are turning away from their biggest promotional tools, maybe as possible sign of things to come.
