Christian and Andy discuss tonight's Grammy Awards, and the price that TMZ paid for the two Ray Rice videos.
Christian and Andy take a look at who is reporting on the Peyton Manning story and how impartial they might be.
Christian Arcand and Andy Hart fill in for the boys on Presidents Day and discuss where the media will go in relation to an old Peyton Manning story, that has been recently brought back into the light.

In honor of Presidents Day, I wanted to pay tribute to our Commanders in Chief. There are a couple of problems with that, however. The first being that no matter which president you’re talking about and what you say about him, you’re automatically alienating 50 percent of your audience. So that’s a can of worms best left unopened.

The second being that I’m not really much of a political guy. As a general rule, I prefer my president to spend his time greeting championship teams to the White House, pardoning the turkey at Thanksgiving and pretty much spending the rest of his time working on his golf game. The way I look at it, the less actual presidenting they do, the fewer opportunities they have to butt their little POTUS noses into my business.

But there is one type of president we can all get behind: The fictional kind. The thing about movie presidents is they’ve never screwed up the economy, broke a promise, humiliated the nation or gotten anyone killed. And even their scandals and the wars they get us into are purely for the sake of our entertainment. So here now is my list of the 10 Best Movie Presidents.

10. The President, “Austin Powers”

Best quote: “Jiminy Jumpin’ Jesus, I can’t believe we’re gonna pay that madman. I got nukes out the ying-yang. Just let me launch one, for God’s sake!”

9. President Beck, “Deep Impact

Best quote: “Life will go on, we will prevail.”

8. President James Dale, “Mars Attacks”

Best quote: “Why can’t we work out our differences? Why can’t we work things out? Little people, why can’t we all just get along?”

7. President Andrew Shepherd, “The American President”

Best quote: “This is a time for serious people, Bob, and your 15 minutes are up. My name is Andrew Shepherd, and I *am* the President.”

6. The President, “Superman II”

Best quote: “What I do now, I do for the sake of the people of Earth. But there is one man on this planet who will NEVER kneel before you.”

5. The President, “Fail Safe”

Best quote: “What do we do, Mr. Chairman? What do we say to the dead?”

4. President Dave Kovic, “Dave”

Best quote: “If you’ve ever seen the look on somebody’s face the day they finally get a job — I’ve had some experience with this — they look like they could fly. And its not about the paycheck, it’s about respect, it’s about looking in the mirror and knowing that you’ve done something valuable with your day.”

3. President Merkin Muffley, “Dr. Strangelove”

Best quote: “Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here! This is the War Room.”

2. President James Marshall, “Air Force One”

Best quote: “Get off my plane!”

1. President Thomas J. Whitmore, “Independence Day”

Best quote: “We will not go quietly into the night!”

Peyton Manning might have more pressing matters on his hands right now — he’s taking a beating nationally since the release of legal documents suggesting he launched a defamation campaign against a onetime Tennessee athletic trainer who accused him of sexually harassing her — but he also has some business decisions to make.

The Broncos reportedly are waiting for Manning to decide whether he will return next season before they negotiate with fellow quarterback Brock Osweiler.

Osweiler, who showed promise while filling in for an injured Manning this past season, is set to become a free agent March 9. That same day, Manning’s $19 million salary for 2016 — the final year of his five-year deal — becomes fully guaranteed.

According to Denver’s 9News writer Mike Klis, the Broncos want to sign Osweiler to a multiyear extension and have him be the starting quarterback next season.

Manning has hinted that he will retire, but he has not made any official announcement.

Meanwhile, Sports Illustrated legal expert Michael McCann revealed some additional information about Manning’s issues with former Tennessee trainer Jamie Naughright, noting that in Naughright’s initial comments and legal filings, she did not initially say Manning made contact with her when he allegedly exposed himself in the training room in 1996.

Naughright was somewhat vague about exactly what happened other than to say Manning exposed himself, but she later said Manning made contact with her head with his “naked butt and rectum” — making the actions far more serious.

Manning has claimed he was mooning a teammate, although the teammate denied that assertion.

— The Memphis Grizzlies raised some eyebrows Sunday when they sent out a Valentine’s Day tweet featuring controversial forward Matt Barnes.

The tweet shows a picture of Barnes looking down at a bouquet of roses and a basketball, with the line: “Love is always the answer.”

Barnes was involved in an offseason incident in which he allegedly drove to the home of ex-wife Gloria Govan and fought with then-Knicks coach (and former Lakers teammate) Derek Fisher, who was visiting (and dating) Govan.

Barnes was suspended two games by the league for the incident.

God I mean he's so famous and so loved by everybody that you know whoever this gorillas is probably lying or whoever all these girls are there probably just balled it trying to get paid. It adds a lot of people said about Caspian tell. Well really until Hannibal Burress started talking about a month stage. And really got that ball rolling and now you know the Bill Cosby he's disgraced than he should be I think. This is a little different obviously it's one accuser not dozens of them but it's sort of the same kind of cult of personality.
