Doug Gottlieb: “I’ll say this…I don’t think they have anything to apologize for. I don’t. I think we’re placing the blame at the wrong places…like I said, if the super pro player arguments, which I think for LeBatard, I don’t think does him justice, they hit such a shallow note to me because it’s obvious you’re doing it to curry favor with the athletes you want to hang out with…but they also work for these guys! These guys are ridiculous wealthy, ridiculously successful, so any of us being critical of them, hey the reality of their job is that they’ve gotten good reviews, otherwise they wouldn’t be making this much money.”

On today’s edition of The Doug Gottlieb Show, during the weekly segment “The Midway”, Doug and the crew discussed the recent spat between Dan LeBatard and Stephen A. Smith on the state of sports media debate shows.
