NFL Week 1 Overreactions, Soon-Shiong Eyes Angels: Sporticast – Sportico.com


On the most recent Sporticast episode, hosts Scott Soshnick and Eben Novy-Williams discuss among the biggest sports business stories of the week, including the beginning of the NFL regular season. As in years past, the NFL’s first set of games has spawned a handful of overreactions, including some that give the hosts déjà vu—Tom Brady is ageless! The Cowboys are done! Should Packers fans be apprehensive about Aaron Rodgers?

The hosts also speak about a latest potential bidder for the Los Angeles Angels. Los Angeles Times owner Patrick Soon-Shiong, one in every of the richest men within the country, is mulling a bid for the baseball team. Soon-Shiong, who’s value a reported $8.9 billion, isn’t any stranger to sports. He’s a Lakers minority investor, and has previously explored bids for NFL and MLS teams. Sportico values the Angels at $2.5 billion.

The hosts also speak about 19-year-old tennis star Carlos Alcaraz, who won his first Grand Slam this past weekend on the U.S. Open. The tournament opened with Serena Williams’ swan song, but ended with a glimpse into the long run of the game, with young phenoms like Alcaraz, Coco Gauff, Iga Swiatek and Frances Tiafoe all taking center stage.

Lastly, the hosts touch on a series of other sports business topics, including latest leadership at MSG Sports, and a notable activist investor changing his tune on Disney (NYSE: DIS).
