“Their day will start with an appearance on ESPN Radio’s flagship simulcast Golic and Wingo and include stops on Get Up, SportsCenter, First Take, NFL Live and just about every other studio show on the ESPN Networks.”

With 9 Super Bowl appearances and 6 titles, you can imagine why Tom Brady wouldn’t be the Patriot to sign up for an all day field trip to Bristol.  The ring fingers are also getting heavy for Super Bowl LIII MVP Julian Edelman and fan favorite Rob Gronkowski.  With that understanding, it’s easy to see why the three faces of the Patriots won’t be participating in ESPN’s “Car Wash,” the term referring to an all day, all platform schedule for visiting athletes and celebrities.

In their place on Thursday will be Sony Michel, Kyle Van Noy, Devin McCourty and his twin brother Jason.  

Their day will start with an appearance on ESPN Radio’s flagship simulcast Golic and Wingo and include stops on Get UpSportsCenter, First Take, NFL Live and just about every other studio show on the ESPN Networks.  The first appearance from the Super Bowl Champions is expected to take place just after 8:30 am ET.

After announcing last month that WWE would go back to 2019 and account for $14.6 million of payments chairman Vince McMahon is alleged to have paid to silence sexual misconduct allegations, the company has announced the amount is larger than original estimated, according to a report from Variety.

Days after McMahon announced he was retiring from the company, WWE discovered he had made two other payments totaling $5 million in previously unknown cases from 2007 and 2009, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The company admits those payments should have been recorded in their statements for those fiscal years. They had previously hoped to have their revised statements available by Monday, August 9th, but the unearthing of additional payments made that goal unrealistic.

McMahon remains a shareholder of WWE with controlling interest. His daughter, Stephanie, was named co-CEO along with former television department head of CAA Nick Khan.

Thanksgiving weekend is getting another NFL game.

Per a report from John Ourand of Sports Business Journal, Amazon’s Prime Video will add an exclusive game on Black Friday to their NFL package, beginning with the 2023 season.

Amazon, the largest retailer in the world, is expected to pay in the neighborhood of $100 million for this single game on Black Friday, one of the largest retail days on the calendar.

The NFL’s antitrust exemption prohibits the league from broadcasting games in primetime on Fridays during November, so, in all likelihood, it will be an afternoon game.

It has long been speculated this was on the table for Prime Video. Football Morning in America’s Peter King deduced the possibility was more probable than not when Prime Video became a player for NFL rights.
