FDH Lounge Show #78: October 28, 2009

By Rick Morris

Variety with a capital "V," that's what you always get with THE FDH LOUNGE (Wednesdays, 7-10 PM EST on SportsTalkNetwork.com).

After The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and a look at This Week in The FDH Lounge, we welcome in legal eagle and fellow member of The 21st Century Media Alliance Steve Kallas, whose Sports Plus/Kallas Remarks blog is a must-read for matters of sports, ethics and the law. He'll be helping us dissect the ESPN/Steve Phillips/Deadspin controversy and helping us figure out if any of these moving parts might end up in a court of law. He's also covering the case of the lawsuit involving a boy killed by a ball hit by an aluminum bat. Is this ambulance chasing or a legitimate issue? Opinions may well differ on this point!

At the bottom of Hour One, we will be pleased to speak with one of the greatest pro wrestling managers of all time, Jim Cornette! He's had an outstanding career, from the Midnight Express to the SMW promotion in the '90s to his recent TNA-to-ROH move and he'll be here to talk about all of that and much more!

In Hour Two, our FDH Lounge Pigskin Report examines present developments in college football and the NFL and then Sportsology's Russ Cohen comes on board for our World Series preview.

In Hour Three, THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER breaks down NFL Week 8 and we then bring on KFFL Senior Editor Cory J. Bonini for his thoughts on the fantasy football landscape. We wrap up with THE GOON SQUAD with a look at the present NHL standings, Chris Chelios going to the minor league Chicago Wolves in an attempt to get back to the big time, vintage Hartford Whaler gear now available and implications in a new book that French-Canadian players are being discriminated against in the NHL.

As always, we urge you to watch the show live (or listen if you’re on dial-up), but if you can’t catch this as it’s happening, you can always catch the FDH archives 24-7 right here or catch us now on iTunes!
