Welcome everybody to Down and Distance, where two dads talk sports, music, life and parenting. Jarrett Payton and Shaun Davis discuss the biggest issues and interview the best and brightest.

Sport business expert, Exavier Pope, joined Jarrett and Shaun to discuss the bizarre circumstances surrounding the precipitous fall of Laremy Tunsil due to a video leaked an hour before the start of the 1st round of the 2016 NFL Draft.  The guys analyze the prospect “Neverland” of the green room and the uncertainty of it’s business repercussions. Pope explains the impact of social media on sports and why the NFL must stop being reactionary when it comes to social media.  Pope also explains how Laremy Tunsil’s fall was the best thing that could have happened for him financially and open season on NFL prospects moving forward.  Tunsil publicly admitted to taking money from Ole Miss coaches and his comments will more than likely damage the football program, but it might have exposed the hypocrisy of large revenue college athletics.  The guys also discuss the business of “Lemonade” and “Views”, and encourage Chance The Rapper to drop “3” immediately
