The Roundtable: Antonio Brown was never leaving football, Lonzo Ball’s tattoo and Rich Paul’s clapback changes the game
Also, Eddie Murphy as Rudy Ray Moore and Chick-fil-A has mac and cheese
The Undefeated’s Roundtable takes on the hottest trending topics in sports, race and culture.
This week, the NCAA attempted to mandate that sports agents hold college degrees, which became known as “The Rich Paul Rule.” It took less than one week and a clapback from Paul for the NCAA to change its mind. The panel debates whether the rule was a method to police black mobility and freedom. Then they don’t hold back about All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown’s upcoming season with the Oakland Raiders after he’s dealt with frostbitten feet and a helmet controversy. And the Dallas Cowboys are still in a pickle with holdouts in the case of “What Should Jerry Jones Do?”
Also up for discussion this week: The panel takes a turn into the world of what white people are talking about, and it’s Chick-Fil-A. Retired football star and Washington Redskins analyst Clinton Portis and The Undefeated’s sneakers insider Aaron Dodson have a difference of opinion when host Justin Tinsley brings up Chick-fil-A’s new macaroni and cheese. Before they leave the table, the three debate whether Eddie Murphy as Rudy Ray Moore in Netflix’s remake of 1970s blaxploitation film Dolemite can bring the star back into his element.
