ESPN apologized for the story today stating it was unprofessional of them and an insult to Sam. What do you think of the Michael Sam situation. Are reporters focusing too much on his sexual orientation and not enough on his football career?

Is one year to harsh?

Who would be a suitable replacement for Bradford? Listeners today texted in with Tim Tebow as their choice but we strongly disagree, while others said Michael Vick would be a good fit.

The guys tossed around the possibility of seeing a repeat of last years Super Bowl on the show today. Seattle and Denver have both looked great during the preseason, dominating the teams that they have faced except when they played each other, which was one of the best games so far this year. Would you be okay with seeing these teams back at it again in the Big Game? Or do you have two other teams in mind?

We had a great turn out last night at Buffalo Wild Wings for the Mountain Ridge little league team game. Our boys from Las Vegas took the win over Philadelphia and their star pitcher Mo'ne Davis. Today the guys talked about how the team was still not in the spotlight during the game, even though they were crushing Philadelphia, with the announcers spending all their attention on Mo'ne Davis. What did you think of the game's coverage last night? Are the networks being a little bias?

In the spirit of shark week we decided to show you some videos of these amazing creatures. Discovery Channel does a great job of showing different species of sharks and how scary they can actually be, but i have never seen something like this. While reeling in a 4-foot white shark, the passengers of this boat got a shocking surprise. A massive grouper jumps out of the water and swallows the shark in one bite. With groupers being known to grow up to 8-feet-long and over 600 pounds, I think I'm good on getting in the water for a while.
