Whitlock analyzes ESPN’s coverage of the season premiere of Monday Night Football and notices something curious. Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib — the first openly gay player in the NFL — made the game-winning play. Why did ESPN seemingly downplay the “historic” moment? Sports writer Steve Kim argues with Jason about the coverage of Nassib versus the media treatment given to Michael Sam and Caitlyn Jenner. In light of Russell Westbrook, Lil Nas X, and Kid Cudi all appearing recently in skirts, “Fearless” columnist Delano Squires analyzes the spiritual bankruptcy of social media culture. After watching the Eli and Peyton Manning broadcast of the Ravens-Raiders game, why does “Fearless” contributor Greg Couch think that sports television may be in the midst of epic change? Plus, Uncle Jimmy and Jason take sides in the Nicki Minaj / Joy Reid Twitter feud.
