Episode 48: Jimmy Traina, Sports Illustrated



Jimmy Traina was the only person I spoke to before the NFL season who predicted NFL ratings would go down this season. I thought it’d be good to have him on to bookend the season by talking about ratings for the Super Bowl. We also talked about whether there’s anything the NFL can really do on the CTE front, Thursday Night Football moving to Fox, Jimmy’s gambling offseason, his “Off the Board” podcast, Jimmy’s thoughts on the waxing NBA, and Jimmy’s thoughts on Al Michaels & Cris Collinsworth’s call of the Super Bowl and legalized gambling.

Jimmy predicts that within the next two seasons Joe Buck will step away from his MLB broadcast duties and that got me asking him about ESPN’s new Sunday Night Baseball booth.
