This week we got a dope show. We talk to sportswriter and friend of the program Patrick Hruby in-depth about the political economy of revenue sports and it’s racialized superstructure, why athletes deserve a piece of the income pie, and the FBI investigation into professional agents and their relationship with schools and collegiate athletes. We also have some Choice Words about the courage and perseverance of gymnast Aly Raisman in seeking justice for assault victims, a Just Stand Up & Just Sit Down for a WNBA coach and a national politician. All that and much more!Patrick HrubyTwitter: @patrick_hrubyhttps://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinion/fbi-investigation-college-basketball-highlights-system-s-hypocrisy-time-call-ncna852646Zirin, Aly Raisman Can’t Stop Won’t Stophttps://www.thenation.com/article/aly-raisman-cant-stop-wont-stop/—http://www.edgeofsportspodcast.com/ | http://twitter.com/EdgeOfSportsPod | http://fb.com/edgeofsportspod | email us: email@example.com | Edge of Sports hotline: 401-426-3343 (EDGE)—Music: Eye Examination - Del the Funky Homosapien | I Really Mean It - The Diplomats | Bossa Nova- Musica Instrumental | Without A Doubt - Black Sheep | Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg - Deep Cover | Trap House - Gucci Mane | A Friend - KRS-One | Same Hoes - Rick Ross | | The Wire Theme
