- Coming back from Cali Ben Standig 1:09:19
The Athletic’s Ben Standig is back from his West Coast vacation and ready to talk Commanders, Dan Snyder, Ted Leonsis and the Wizards with guests Joe House (The Ringer) and attorney Stephanie Weissenburger.
Ben opens the show sharing a bit about his vacation and diving into his new profile on The Athletic about first-round pick Jahan Dotson. Plus thoughts on Curtis Samuel and Daron Payne.
Then Stephanie enters the chat (15:30) for the latest on whether Snyder will testify before the Oversight Committee and under what circumstances. What’s the end game for both sides? Should Congress drop the subpoena talk? How long can Snyder stay on his mega yacht?
From there Ben and Joe, two DMV natives, discuss the Commanders and Wizards (35:54). They start with the Commanders’ on-field vibe two weeks before training camp (some optimism!) even with the polarization around Carson Wentz. Then it’s all about the Wizards starting with those amusing comments from Leonsis following the re-signing of Bradley Beal. Also Johnny Davis’s struggles (Ben was at Summer League), and where hope exists.
