Sam and Brad Show Podcast 4.30.19

Sam spoke about a recent article in the Beacon Journal about local officials asking the State for stricter penalties for those who assault sports officials. He also took calls on the matter as well.

He also spoke with former Barberton graduate and Charleston (WV) football player John Cominsky who was selected in the fourth round of the NFL Draft.

Former NBA Referee Tim Donaghy spoke with Sam and Brad Wednesday to talk about the state of the NBA and the tough task of officiating at the highest level.

When asked about why coaches and players are subject to a substantial fine when they question an officials' call, Donaghy said the league doesn't want to face embarrassment.

 

This conversation stems from a postgame rant from Memphis Grizzlies' head coach David Fizdale who was hit with a $30,000 fine for his critical comments after his team's loss to the Spurs in Game #2.
