The guys begin by discussing the off-field situations surrounding Aaron Rodgers, Henry Ruggs III, and Calvin Ridley. Rodgers was recently interviewed in August, where he stated that he was immunized, but never said whether or not he was vaccinated. After becoming COVID positive leading up to the Packers’ game against the Chiefs, people have begun to wonder if the reigning NFL MVP lied, violating NFL protocols in the process. The Raiders star wide receiver, Henry Ruggs, was recently arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) as well as wreckless driving, with speeds of upwards of 156mph, resulting in the death of a 23-year-old woman and her dog. With the world against Ruggs for his poor decisions, the Raiders quarterback, Derek Carr, recently came out and said that he’d support Ruggs since it appears no one else will. With Ruggs having a bestfriend pass away from a drunk driver incident in the past, does Ruggs deserve the sympathy? What’s going on with Calvin Ridley and his mental health, as he retired this past weekend leading up to the Falcons game against the Panthers. Did the game become too much for the promising WR, or was it something that we don’t quite understand just yet?
Outside of these three situations, the guys go on to talk about the Atlanta Braves winning the World Series over the Astros, Buster Posey retiring from Major League Baseball, EDM concerts, and some upcoming social media platforms that could surpass the likes of Facebook in the future. What makes someone like Freddie Freeman so deserving of a championship? Is Posey the greatest catcher of all time, or does Tanner think there’s someone else we should consider? What are some of Jeff and Matt’s crazy EDM stories they’ve experienced over the years? With Facebook recently changing their name to Meta, to avoid backlash from active lawsuits, what should we expect from the upcoming Metaverse? What are some other platforms to be on the look out for in the future? Find out about all this, and much more, on the newest episode of The 412 Podcast!
