The Doug Gottlieb Show Weekly Rewind 7/25-7/29

TRAVIS TYGART – 7/25/16
U.S. Anti-Doping Agency CEO

“They want the best entertainment on the field, so they can’t possibly promote their sports, which is their obligation and their legal duty, and police their sports. It’s the fox guarding the hen house, so to speak. I think we’ve now seen (corruption) at the highest levels . . . and the violation of clean athletes’ rights around the world, unfortunately, has been victim of that system of a sport trying to please itself. It just doesn’t work – and clean athletes, as a result, lose.”

PETE PRISCO – 7/25/16
CBSSports.com senior NFL columnist

“They’re in total rebuild mode, and when you look at their roster, they have a bunch of young kids at wide receiver. So do you want him on the roster? That’s a big-time question. Personally, I think he’s a heck of a player. If he’s healthy and he’s dedicated to the craft, I think he could be a big-time player for anybody, including the Browns. But the question is, do the Browns want to go in that direction? Anybody else, would they be willing to take him on – because he does face a four-game suspension, and one more misstep, and he’s in big trouble. So it’s a risk, but he’s a heck of a player.”

JOSE BAUTISTA – 7/26/26
Blue Jays outfielder

“I understand the situation with Chris Sale is a sensitive one, so the only thing that I can say is I’m not in his shoes, so I don’t know exactly what transpired and why he reacted the way he did. But understanding what type of player he is, I’m sure there was a little bit more to that whole situation. I’d rather not make a specific comment about whether I would have done it or not because I’ve never been in that position to be able to really consider doing that.”

TRAVIS KELCE – 7/26/16
Chiefs TE

“When you originally hear ‘dating TV reality show,’ you don’t just jump at it. It was something that just kind of made sense. I feel like a lot of NFL players, a lot of guys in the league, are trying to get out from under the helmet. I know I was one of them. I know there’s a lot of guys that would jump at the bit to date 50 women on TV.”

JOHN SMOLTZ – 7/26/16
MLB Hall of Famer

“If they can squeeze in maybe one more starter and just strengthen that rotation, they put themselves in a very, very elite category, a lot different than the Kansas City Royals. The Kansas City Royals primarily relied on their bullpen. Their starters were okay. They weren’t deep. They had to utilize 25 guys on their roster. The Cubs are deep enough that they can really pound and hurt some people. But I still think, despite being the favorite, if other teams don’t seize the moment and cherry pick another starter from somebody, you’re talking about a team that’s waited a long time to win a World Series. They’ve put themselves in a category by themselves.”

TONY KORNHEISER – 7/27/16
ESPN personality

“And in a podcast circumstance, of course, it’s sort of like the difference between HBO and CBS. Am I going to be provocateur just for the sake of showing you I can do it? I don’t see any need to do that anymore. I’d like to do a smart and funny show, I’d like to do a subversive show, but I’d also like to do a show that stays on the air every once in a while.”

TIM TEBOW – 7/27/16
Former NFL QB

“I think I’m still young. I still feel really good. So is that something that I still feel like I could be an effective quarterback in the NFL? Yeah, I really do feel like I could be. But I think at the same time, there’s a lot of other things that I’m doing that I love and I’m blessed to do, whether that’s being a part of college football, whether that’s (writing) another book or whether that’s what my foundation is doing in 16 other countries. So I’m staying extremely busy doing a lot of things that I love to do. Football is just one thing that I love to do. But it can’t become your everything because eventually you’re not going to be able to play, whether that’s today or it’s five years from now. If it’s your everything, then when you’re done, what do you do? I’m glad I’m not at a point where it’s who I am. It’s just a piece of what I’ve done.”

TERRY STOTTS – 7/28/16
Blazers head coach

“A lot of things went into it, but when a team can do that (and win two games on the road) being down 3-1, it’s really remarkable. It just put an end to a historical season as it was with Golden State and what they did during the regular season and the way they came back against Oklahoma City. For Cleveland to do that, it was just remarkable. I thought it was a remarkable season to begin with, and it finished that way.”

JEFF ROSS – 7/28/16
Comedian

“He was sort of like kicking his feet in the air like a little kid. I think people, even if they look a little mad during the roast, by the time they get their rebuttal or they go home and watch it, I think that they kind of get what happens. It’s kind of like a party. I want everyone to leave the roast thinking that was a really good time.”
