The Best Sports Podcasts

Despite this age of media trending toward video, podcasts are at an all-time high, especially in sports. You can get more entertainment and information from hour-long podcasts than from your standard sports television show, and there’s no commercials. It’s been four years since we last listed the 25 best sports podcasts, and much has evolved. ESPN archives live radio shows after completion, which makes them podcasts as far as we’re concerned. And outlets like the Players’ Tribune and Uninterrupted have allowed the athletes to join in as well. We’ve heard NBA players like JJ Redick and Draymond Green, MLB players like CC Sabathia, and NFL players like Victor Cruz behind the mic, expressing opinions and shedding light on life as an athlete. Listeners now can get a glimpse of the life of an athlete from a primary source instead of the common secondary source in reporters. We’ve trimmed the list down to 20 spots and you’re less likely to see outdated shows like The Dan Patrick Show and Mike & Mike on this year’s list. There’s a new crop of podcasters in addition to some old names that deserve to keep their recognition.

RONAN was king of Leinster, the father of Mail Fuothartaig and husband of Ethne. When Ethne died he re-married, to the daughter of Eochaidh. She was young yet, and although she let herself be wed to Ronan at her father’s insistence she had her sights set on Mail. When he rejected her advances she was livid at being spurned. To spite the young fellow she claimed to Ronan that his son had tried to rape her. The father was unwilling to believe her accusation but she persisted and talked him into believing her. When he was finally convinced Ronan ordered his son killed. When he later learned the truth of his young wife’s scheming he died grief-stricken. His lying queen took poison on his death sooner than face the anger of his clan;. Another king of Leinster, Ross ‘the Red’ is thought b some to have given his epithet to the ‘Red Branch’, a military elite, who held their gatherings in a red room.

He forgot his word and they did not stop off on the way back.

He wedded Maga, the daughter of Oenghus, who bore him a giant by the name of Fachtna. Fachtna was in turn wedded to Nessa, becoming shortly afterward the father of Conchobar mac Nessa. RUADH, a son of Rigdonn was on a long sea crossing, his ship leading others to Norway when the ships suddenly ceased to move forward even though their sails were filled by a strong south-westerly wind. There is more than one version of the legend, one having Ruadh dive into the sea and swimming aft under his ship to see what had stopped them even with the wind behind them. He found three giantesses there, holding onto the keels. To be able to carry on Ruadh went with these giantesses at their ‘request’ to their home and became their lover. Ruadh’s three ships were released and they sailed on. He forgot his word and they did not stop off on the way back. The giantesses took their revenge by cutting off his sons’ heads and throwing them after Ruadh as he passed.

Another version tells us that when the ships were becalmed Ruadh and his men ran out of food and water. He swam in search of help and came to an island where there was a cave entrance under the sea. Nine beautiful women lived in this cave and by their invitation spent nine nights with them, each woman bearing him a son. Have you enjoyed reading this series?

There’s plenty to choose from in these 21 ‘Fringe’ Hub-pages. Hi Alan Robert Lancaster. I enjoyed reading the hub. I think some of these Gaelic legends you have covered are interesting to read. Voted up, useful and interesting.

He’s started 17 games in four seasons and has mostly been used as a rotational pass rusher. Lawson is coming off a season in which he set career highs with 6.5 sacks and 18 QB hits. He produced a sack or QB hit on 9.9% of his pass-rush opportunities, which ranked eighth among 172 qualifying players. But the film shows he benefited from matchups against tight ends and botched blocking assignments from opposing teams. Teams will have to decide whether they see Lawson as a sub-package player or a starter. He had 12.5 sacks in 2016 but battled through injuries the next two years. Last offseason, Golden signed a one-year, $3.75 million deal with the Giants and produced an impressive season with 10 sacks and 17 QB hits. Golden had a sack or QB hit on 8.3% of his pass-rush opportunities, which ranked 18th out of 172 qualifying players. Golden does a good job on stunts and plays with great effort. He should have a better market this time around. Only 10 players have more sacks than Addison over the past four seasons.
