CSN's Tom E. Curran sits in with Dino and Gerry the day after Tom Brady's appeal was denied by the US Circuit Court of Appeals. The guys open the show discussing what now looks like a suspension in the books.


The Buffalo Bills posted this tweet the instant the denial of Tom Brady’s appeal was announced. There’s an old adage that goes all the way back to me making it up when I started to write this blog. And it goes something like this: “If you want to be the best, you’ve got to beat the best. And if you want to live your entire existence as an irrelevant, amateurish, loser franchise, you’ve got to openly celebrate on your official Twitter account when a true winner who’s made you his bitch for 15 years has to miss your game for something he didn’t do.”

This is part of the reason why the Buffalo Bills lose and will always lose. It’s part of the team culture. They’re always looking for a break. A shortcut. Some force from the outside to come in and hand them success, instead of actually making the sacrifices it takes to achieve it. To be fair – and I don’t know why I would be – Buffalo’s Marcell Dareus has taken the man’s route, saying he “hates” the idea of not facing Brady and “it tears me up a little bit” he’ll be suspended in their first meeting. So there are some stand up guys on that team.

But that doesn’t let the franchise off the hook for one hot second. Imagine for one second the Patriots putting out a post celebrating the fact they won’t have to face a certain player because he’s too good for them to beat. Never mind the hand-wringing across the country about what an arrogant, classless organization they are. There’d be congressional hearings to look into it and they might never get another draft pick again. But when the Bills do it, we all just accept it as the way they roll. Losers do loser things.

Tim Tebow

Tim Tebow

At one point, there were rumors of Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger would be speaking at this year’s Republican National Convention.

There will be a quarterback there, but it’s not either of the aforementioned two.

It’s former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow.

The Heisman Trophy winner, now an analyst on ESPN, has always been known for his ultra-conservative views. Now he is now scheduled to speak on night four of the convention, set to take place in Cleveland July 18-21, per a list released by the New York Times.

Tebow has not played an NFL game since 2012, and was released from the Eagles following the preseason on Sept. 5 of 2015, but that has not kept him out of the limelight. This could very well be a jumping off point of a different avenue for the 28-year-old, who has even toyed with the idea of a political career down the road.

In an interview on Fox and Friends on March 29, when asked about a political career, Tebow said: “It’s been crazy, hasn’t it? It’s been a whirlwind watching everything. You know, I don’t know in this time in my life, but if there’s a chance you can make a difference some day in something, then that would be intriguing.”

Other athletes set to speak include golfer Natalie Gulbis and UFC President Dana White.

Gulbis has been an outspoken supporter, most noticeably when she penned “The Donald Trump I Know, by Natalie Gulbis,” which ran on Golf.com on June 2.

White, who was just involved in the record-breaking 4 million dollar sale of UFC, has adamantly supported Trump, starting with his appearance on TMZ Sports, where he says that he would, in fact, vote for Trump.
