5/12/15 Podcast Aaron Katersky

The NFL came down hard on its biggest star and its championship team, telling Tom Brady and the Patriots that no one is allowed to mess with the rules of the game. The league suspended the Super Bowl MVP Monday for the first four games of the season, fined the New England Patriots $1 million and took away two draft picks as punishment for deflating footballs used in the AFC title game. Brady’s agent called the NFL’s decision ludicrous, but when you figure agents get, what 10%… Brady set to make $7 million in 2015…. well, who can blame him to aggressively defending his client. There should be more reaction by morning. Still no word from Brady himself.

5/11/15 Podcast Steve Roberts

When the fall of 2016 rolls around, Democrats are hoping they’ll be able to take back control of the Senate, and of course President Obama will be leaving office. So perhaps it isn’t so odd to see Sens. Reid, Schumer, and Warren, pushing back against the president over his Trans-Pacific trade deal, one that they feel will hurt the middle class, a key strategic constituency that the Dems believe can help carry them to victory next election. The president also recently accepted a bipartisan bill regarding Congressional approval of the Iran nuke deal, which, well, is new. Are these signs that his lame duck status is beginning to take its toll? Is President Obama’s legislative strength beginning to drain?
