On the latest episode of Sporticast, hosts Scott Soshnick and Eben Novy-Williams discuss some of the biggest sports business stories of the week, including a rare drama about NFL ownership spilling over into the public eye.
Earlier this week, Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay became the first NFL owner to publicly call for the ousting of Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder. Snyder has been mired in a myriad of controversies over the past few years, with a growing drumbeat for the NFL to force him to sell, which they can if 24 owners vote to do so. Last week, ESPN wrote that Snyder was privately telling associates he was information gathering on other owners if they tried to remove it.
In other NFL news, Stan Kroenke has agreed to pay $571m of the $720m the NFL owed the city of St. Louis after Rams move to Los Angeles – another sticking point between the owners – and the Tennessee Titans received more than $1.2 billion. in public money, a record, for a new domed stadium project in Nashville.
Finally, the hosts discuss the new OTT service from the Los Angeles Clippers and FuboTV to abandon on its sports betting product, which could become a trend as the cost of customer acquisition remains high.
