Outkick the Show: Tuesday, August 13, 2019

On today’s Outkick the Show, Clay Travis discussed the contract situation between the Dallas Cowboys and quarterback Dak Prescott. Prescott reportedly turned down $30 million a year and is now asking for an average of $40 million each season. It is Clay’s opinion that this is one of the craziest contract negotiations in the history of the NFL. “There are at least 15 QBs who are better than Prescott, and yet he is asking to be the highest paid QB and player in the history of the NFL,” said Travis. Contract negotiations are all about market and market-demand, added Travis, and Prescott is not worth the money.

Clay then talked about this season of Hard Knocks featuring the Oakland Raiders, and openly hoped they will directly approach the zaniness surrounding Antonio Brown rather than try to cover it up in tonight’s episode. This is doubtful, said Travis, because the Raiders have final cut and it is produced by NFL Films. It is typically more propaganda than transparency. 

Clay also pointed out the crickets surrounding Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris’ flagrant lies with regard to the false accusations re: Michael Brown and the Ferguson case. Officer Darren Wilson should sue Warren for defamation, said Travis, as she is blatantly lying about the incident. Kamala Harris also lied in her tweets about the case in order to cause racial division with hopes of gaining an edge in the 2020 election. These are flagrant lies, said Travis, and the media should expose them for what they are.

Clay then mentioned CNN’s Chris Cuomo and his reaction to being called “Fredo” in a bar. Cuomo went on a profanity-laden tirade, even threatening violence after being compared to the character from The Godfather novel and film. Cuomo said “Fredo” is the Italian version of the “N-word.” Clay said it was an over-reaction.

Finally, Clay brought up the “Chink in the Armor” headline from an ESPN editor during the “Linsanity” craze, resulting in the editor being fired, threatened, and stalked. The editor ended up devoting his life to the priesthood and is now ordained in the Catholic Church. Clay was pleased to see the unfortunate story has resulted in a positive ending. The editor survived one of the first online-mob attacks in American history.
