The Drive with Big Al & DMac LIVE in studio! Taking a knee, domestic violence & overtime rules take the stage, as the guys take calls to gauge viewer interest in NFL Red Zone & watching network television when it comes to NFL games.
What a beast the NFL has become, and Big Al mentions the sticky situations NFL veterans can get in when domestic violence is part of the issue. Greg Hardy & Joe Mixon are highlighted, with some exceptions sprinkled in by DMac. Ryan Fitzpatrick lands in Tampa for the ’17 season, and the guys agree Fitz is a solid backup for Jameis Winston. Von Miller does the unthinkable and show up for a Denver Broncos employee awards banquet, and Big Al & DMac gush about the player Von has grown to be.
DMac takes a stand when a caller asks him if his son did what Joe Mixon did. Ways to make ratings go back up like featuring the 49ers vs Browns game, and if big names like Ben Roethlisberger & Tom Brady truly attract the big numbers. DMac has some issues with hockey, like re-seeding the top teams & changing the time of year the season finishes. The Canadian influence is not strong with DMac, and he mentions the thrill of overtime goals in the NHL.
Big Al talks making love to pressure, and DMac compares baseball to hockey, highlighting the max age at which a player should be enrolled in high school sports. Tom Brady endorses Aston Martin, and Al hopes the Cavs & Warriors don’t stumble over the weekend on their way to the NBA Finals. Also, Big Sexy gets horses for the ’17 Preakness Stakes & the first and only negative thing Big Al has heard about Lonzo Ball.
