An Official Miami Dolphins Podcast

The Emmy-nominated ESPN Reporter and “Bangy Dangy” house party legend returns to The Tank and he’s not holding back! Dissatisfied with the download ranking of his previous appearance on the show (and even more dissatisfied with the fact that Seth IS satisfied with the ranking), Darlington dives in with the same fervor that has made him one of the top NFL reporters in the business. In this episode, Jeff gives us an inside look at the mindset of journalists as it relates to developing relationships with players, commitment to accuracy, and even the current trend of postgame interviews on zoom. He also sheds light on the Dolphins 2005 team rallying cry, “Why Not Us?,” reflects on how the rest of the sports world reacted to his reports that Tom Brady would not return to the New England Patriots prior to the 2020 NFL season, explains how his refusal to plan for just about anything resulted in a shared hotel room night with fellow writer Jason Cole, and looks to one-up long-time friend, Channing Crowder, with a Matt Roth story of his own.

Contributors to this episode include Sean “DJ Prec” Todd and Dolphins Productions.

Theme song created and performed by The Honorable SoLo D.
