Episode 1257: Jonny Cooper On All-Irelands, Trash Talk And Dissenting Voices, US Murph On NFL, Fed Crashes Out, Futsal Danes, Nike And Kaepernick
Jonny Cooper was Jim Gavin’s captain at u-21 level in 2010, had to bide his time before making the step-up to senior, but since making his debut in 2013, he’s only lost ONE championship game. He joins us today to talk about his younger team-mates, communication on the field, trash talk, cherishing these wins, and the dissenting voices on Dublin’s dominance.
US Murph previews the new American football season, as the NFL lurches from one PR disaster to another, while still maintaining its position as the nation’s most watched sport. We ask do fans’ opinions on the tackle laws reflect their political leanings?

And we talk to Caitlin Thompson of Racquet Magazine and the Racquet Magazine Podcast about just how Roger Federer went from being a set and a break up to crashing out of the US Open to an unknown 29 year old fantasy football fan.
Beating Roger Federer is one thing.
But when you have the 2nd pick in your fantasy draft in a few hours, you got to focus up ???? pic.twitter.com/Fn38hwnHb4
