Episode 2822: Forest Lose Cult Hero, Ohtani Signs Biggest Ever Deal, SF 69ers, NYC Comms
US Murph comes bearing news of the biggest contract in the history of US Sports on today’s show – as Shohei Ohtani signs a 700-million dollar deal with California state rivals, the LA Dodgers. We talk to him about Ohtani’s 68 million dollars a year retirement fund, the hard-charging San Francisco 69ers, and pints in the Cobblestone.
We also discuss Steve Cooper finally losing his job as Nottingham Forest manager, and why this means the end of the concept of fairness in football according to at least one listener – and there’s also Draymond Green, Bernie Madoff, and the lacklustre communication skills of the New York City mayor.
