*Important to note
This podcast was taped on Monday, concluding before the news that Jamie Horowitz, president of national networks for Fox Sports, was fired.
This is important to note as he was in charge of all things FS1 – a primary topic of the podcast.
Therefore, all of the discussion was with the mindset Horowitz was still in charge.
For those that may wonder his importance, he was one of the biggest reason Skip Bayless, Colin Cowherd, and others joined FS1. All of the new shows, ‘Undisputed, ‘The Herd’, ‘Speak for Yourself’, and the upcoming ‘First Thing First’ were created under Horowitz.
Bayless claimed on his first day on-air at FS1, Horowitz was the primary reason he joined.
