WFNY Podcast Logo

WFNY Podcast LogoIt was another WFNY Joncast this week after a nice vacation for me last week. This time Jon and I came prepped with an agenda that we made sure to hit along the way. Here are some of the things we discussed.

  • Art Modell missing the hall of fame and how it wasn’t all that jubilant
  • How important are halls of fame anyway?
  • Small hall guys vs. big hall guys
  • The Ravens winning and how they’re just another division rival now
  • The Cleveland Indians’ rotation and how it’s changed
  • Brett Meyers and his youthful Ashton Kutchery
  • Quentin Tarantino and the downside of taking lessons from his films
  • Are the morals of Tarantino’s revenge fantasies immoral?
  • Netflix’s new show House of Cards starring Kevin Spacey
  • Selling a show based on a distribution model
  • The benefits of watching a TV show “marathon” style
  • What does the Netflix business model mean for cable TV and sports?

    always nice listening to you two.

    on jon’s ‘what makes an owner a HOFer’ let me offer some thoughts:

    founder class: george halas, art rooney, tim mara, charles bidwell, curly lambeau, bert bell. true pioneers without whom either nfl doesn’t exists or has a drastically different form.

    true contributors: wellington mara, ralph wilson, lamar hunt. guys who bankrolled elements of the league during uncertain times and so ensured its future.

    innovators: al davis, dan rooney. guys who left a significant mark on the league resulting it its betterment.

    on jon’s ‘why do we care,’ i too am not generally interested in halls of fame. nor do heisman or mvp convos interest me. but the modell thing was a cause of righteousness. much like craig,, my interest wasnt borne out of a modell loathing, but more from a ‘if we’re having a HOF, let’s at least try to get it right.’ and my reaction after modell’s not making was not any happiness but some satisfaction that the right call was made.

    Jon, I feel that way about O Brother, Where Are Thou? I don’t know why, I can’t call it my favorite movie and yet I could watch it over and over and over again and legitimately enjoy it.

    I really like the back and forth between you two. It’s good pod.

    I can’t comment frequently because my work blocks disqus, But, I really like the podcast addition to the site… minus the baseball talk, #MLBfree

    P.S. Next time Denny is on you should bring up the orange bear
