On Tuesday night, two massage therapists alleging sexual misconduct against Deshaun Watson appeared on HBO to put faces and voices behind their accounts, while Watson’s legal team continued to fight back publicly, both on and off the show. Conor and Gary discuss the potential effects of that “Real Sports” segment, the arguments Watson’s lawyers are making on his behalf, and the stubborn misconceptions about the Watson cases that just won’t go away.
Then SI senior writer Stephanie Apstein joins the show to talk Trevor Bauer and the similarities and differences between the Bauer and Watson cases, especially in light of Bauer’s suspension (two years, currently under appeal) as a decision from the NFL nears.
Plus, Conor and Gary make Steph talk more Orioles baseball than anyone could possibly want, and Steph tries her hand at a baseball-themed round of More Than Four But Fewer Than Six Questions.
