Episode 423 of the "Sports Illustrated Media Podcast" hosted by Jimmy Traina features a conversation with ESPN's Troy Aikman.
The "Monday Night Football" analyst gives his perspective on what it was like to be in the stadium and on the air during Damar Hamlin's terrifying medical incident and shares his thoughts on how Joe Buck and his ESPN colleagues handled coverage of Hamlin.
Aikman also talks about what his first year calling "Monday Night Football" was like after being at Fox for 20 years, flex scheduling coming to "Monday Night Football" next season, why he thinks the NFL product has been watered down, the wild-card playoff matchups, why Tom Brady is still so good, whether there are too many teams in the playoffs and much more.
Following Aikman, Sal Licata from WFAN radio and SNY TV in New York joins Jimmy for their weekly "Traina Thoughts" segment. This week, Jimmy and Sal discuss wild-card weekend wagers, the problem with college football's national title game and another tipping controversy.
