Episode 215 of the Sports Media Podcast features Michael McCann, a legal analyst and senior sports legal reporter at Sportico and a Professor of Law at the University of New Hampshire Franklin Pierce School of Law, where he is Director of the Sports and Entertainment Law Institute. In this podcast, McCann discusses why coverage of the intersection and sports and legal has increased multifold; how he distinguishes between his legal read on something versus how he might feel morally about it. Del Rio from a sports law vantage point; the legal questions here since a coach or executive is neither an employee of the NFL nor in a players' union; PGA Tour suspensions of LIV golfers and what legal fallout may come of that; the new reporting that found DeShaun Watson booked message appointments with at least 66 different women from the from fall 2019 to spring 2021; whether the Browns can void the Watson trade if they wanted to; Johnson v. NCAA, which is before the Third Circuit, and why is this case is extremely important; at least 12 states enacting legislation banning transgender students from participating in sports teams at public high schools and what that means legally; the NCAA women’s basketball tournament and what recourse players have on media compensation; and more.
