Dan Patrick: I Am Not Asking Tom Brady Football Questions

Dan Patrick took part in the Let’s Go! podcast town hall this week and had a particular question to ask Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.

Brady and Jim Gray invited a star-studded sports media cast onto this week’s show to pepper the QB with all manner of questions.

“I wanted to tap into something that I’ve talked about on this show,” Patrick said on The Dan Patrick Show. “I was gonna sign a five-year contract [at ESPN], and I turned that down because my wife said, ‘the kids are all going to be grown up like you’re gonna miss out on this.'”

Brady has said for a while that he wants to play through his age-45 season, and even floated the idea of playing until he turns 50. He’s leading the league in most major statistical passing categories, proving that he still has plenty in the tank. Patrick wanted to know if the calls of family, not father time, would eventually decide for him.

“I wonder,” Patrick said on the SiriusXM Let’s Go podcast. “You’re 44, you have your kids, but that tug of war of wanting to be great, but also you know, your wife saying, if she does say. How do you kind of juggle that where you don’t feel guilty going to work?”

Brady responded honestly to the personal question from one dad to another. Patrick mentioned in his analysis of the interview that he wasn’t interested in asking football questions.

“It’s the same thing in this house,” Brady said. “I think my wife, as you know, held down the house for a long time now. I think there are things she wants to accomplish. She hasn’t worked as much over the last 10-12 years, you know, just raising our family and kind of committing to a life in Boston.

Brady took a second to collect his thoughts before finishing the response.

“It’s a very difficult issue to reconcile without just saying, hey it’s time to retire,” Brady said. “I think, you know, we are coming to the end here too.”

Doug Franz Launching Sports Betting Podcast, ‘Props Arizona,’ With Sean Lockhart

“I appreciate Doug & Wolf listeners more than they’ll ever know, and I’m excited for them to experience my new podcast Props Arizona.”

Published

Following his dismissal from Arizona Sports 98.7 FM, Doug Franz has found a new gig. Franz will join sports gambling expert Sean “Papa Bear” Lockhart to host a new podcast for Props.com titled Props Arizona.

Franz was a mainstay on Phoenix sports talk radio, co-hosting The Doug and Wolf Show in the market for 15 years. Parent company Bonneville Phoenix said Franz would be moved to a “digital role” in shuffling the Arizona Sports daily lineup last August.

But Franz said he was effectively fired. Soon after leaving 98.7 FM, he launched a daily podcast titled Doug Franz Unplugged.

Lockhart has been a mainstay in Arizona, consulting on sports betting and sales since graduating from Arizona State. He’s provided analysis for several sports betting podcasts and digital shows, in addition to his own website, for several years.

“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work alongside Sean on this new podcast,” said Franz in the official announcement from gambling media company American Affiliate. “I appreciate Doug & Wolf listeners more than they’ll ever know, and I’m excited for them to experience my new podcast Props Arizona.”

For American Affiliate, which has several sports betting and investment properties in its portfolio including BetPrep and Wagers, Props Arizona is the first regional (or state-exclusive) spinoff of its Props City podcast.

Props Arizona is set to launch at the end of January. The show will be available on all major podcast platforms including Apple Podcasts and Spotify. A teaser for the show is currently online for download.

Michael Irvin: ‘Shan & RJ Start National Conversations’

“Y’all stir the pot a lot on the national scene. Every time I’m out there I gotta hear ‘Jerry said on Shan and RJ 105.3’.”

Published

Michael Irvin makes regular appearances on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. He is one of the many stars associated with the Dallas Cowboys that make time to talk to the hosts on the team’s flagship station. On Thursday morning, The Playmaker joined Shan & RJ and told them to be careful with the words they choose.

Irvin came on following a discussion of Mike McCarthy’s final conversation with the media for the season. During the segment, one of the host’s said it was the Cowboys’ coach’s “final conversation.” Irvin said that statement needed some clarity.

“You should have added ‘of this year’,” he said. “Because the national guys, they’ll pick it up and run with that.”

It isn’t just a matter of what was said. Michael Irvin says that the national media will pay attention to who said it was McCarthy’s final conversation with the media and jump to conclusions.

“Y’all stir the pot a lot on the national scene. Every time I’m out there I gotta hear ‘Jerry said on Shan and RJ 105.3’.”

The hosts laughed as Irvin made the declaration. Maybe they enjoyed the characterization. Maybe they knew he was telling the truth.

Plenty of national headlines have been generated by appearances from Jerry and Stephen Jones on the station. Although, to be fair to Shan & RJ, K&C Masterpiece has been at the center of plenty of those conversations too.

That didn’t stop Michael Irvin distilling Shan & RJ’s role in the national media conversation about the Cowboys to a simple sentence: “Y’all starting mess out here.”
