I am moderating a weekly sports Twitter chat on Wednesdays at 8pm. There is only one requirement: please hashtag all tweets with #SSsports. To find out more about the chat, click here. Also, be sure to check back tomorrow to see if you’ve made the highlights! For tonight’s #SSsports Twitter Chat, we will discuss the following topics:
1. MLB: David Price and Evan Longoria both displayed displeasure with the Rays’ low attendance despite having the best record in baseball. The Rays are now giving away 20,000 free tickets to tonight’s game. CNBC’s Darren Rovell thinks that it is a bad idea. What are your thoughts on this strategy to draw fans and raise attendance?
2. NCAA Basketball: Two Michigan St. players have been accused of sexual assault but no charges were filed. There is a detailed description of the police report and the event that occurred here. Should the young men have been charged with sexual assault? And, how does this affect Tom Izzo’s team entering the season?
3. NFL: Fanhouse just named Cowboys coach Wade Phillips as the sixth best coach in the NFL this season. Is Fanhouse writer Dave Goldberg insane or am I just insane for thinking that Goldberg is insane? Or, is NFL-related news just insane in general (Jaguars WR Kassim Osgood gets pistol-whipped by girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend before she and the ex exchange gunshots)?
