The Mount Crymore of SportsProfessional athletes are hyper-pampered millionaires. They also receive lots of criticism. Some brush it off and some can’t stop playing the victim about being so scrutinized.Today, Colin unveiled the Mount Crymore of Sports, a shrine to today’s athletes with the thinnest skin. The current honorees as Colin sees it are Cam Newton, Odell Beckham Jr., David Price and Kevin Durant. There’s no slight too small to draw a reaction from these guys. Guests:Doug Gottlieb – FS1 Analyst and host of The Doug Gottlieb Show to explain why Steph Curry seems immune to criticism; and why questioning baseball players over steroid use shouldn’t be so shocking.Gary Klein – L.A. Times Rams beat writer joins the show from camp to talk about what the team expects from Jared Goff; if they would pull the plug if he doesn’t improve; and why Aaron Donald will probably end his holdout.Greg Cosell – NFL Films Executive Producer is in-studio to explain why the Jimmy Garoppolo sample size is too small say he’ll be great; what he sees on film from older quarterbacks like Brady, Brees, and Big Ben.Charlie Weis – Former Notre Dame Head coach and Patriots Coordinator is in-studio to talk about how long it takes to bail on a rookie; the why some guys are good practice players but aren’t gamers; why coaches understand when they take the Notre Dame job that it’s more difficult; and why the market for Colin Kaepernick will only increase as the injuries mount. Nothing sticks to Stephlon Curry Steph Curry spent the weekend mocking LeBron James at a wedding and pounding beers after crashing a house party. Both went viral on social media, but based on Curry’s history, none of it is likely to stick. He’s Stephlon.Today, Colin pointed out that no matter what Curry has done throughout his career, he never catches much heat. While LeBron gets murdered for a bad quarter against the Celtics, Curry has bad games in The Finals and no one seems to notice. Out late at night chugging brews with beer on your shirt? Totally cool. Taking a dump on the court? That’s just a misunderstanding.Much like Brett Favre, Steph Curry just has a likeability forcefield around him that is impossible to penetrate. There’s no way to explain it, it just is.
