Stephon Gilmore’s Wife Calls Out Adam Schefter For ‘False News’

“On the Greg Hill Show on WEEI, Schefter addressed Mrs. Gilmore’s tweet and said that what he was told is not wrong and even though both tested positive, Gilmore and Newton having dinner together shouldn’t be a problem for anyone.”

Adam Schefter was a guest on 97.5 the Fanatic in Philadelphia last week and discussed positive Covid-19 tests on the New England Patriots’ roster. The ESPN NFL insider said based on what he had been told, it was no surprise that both Cam Newton and Stephon Gilmore had tested positive.

“I happen to believe, I was told that in the New England area, over the weekend, that Cam Newton and Stephon Gilmore were spotted having dinner together on Friday night. So, and I was aware of that over the weekend. So, to hear that he tested positive, I got to be honest, is not overly surprising to me. If you’re at a dinner table with somebody who has the virus, there’s a chance, I would think, that you’re going to get the virus.”

Schefter went on to call the Covid cases in the NFL “a crisis.” He noted that the league would have to get creative with its schedule, which it eventually did.

“I mean, if you look at everything that’s happened this morning, we’ve got a third Patriot testing position, another Titan testing positive. I think there’s a lot of questions about this week now.”

Crisi or not, at least one part of Schfter’s report is in accurate according to Gabrielle Gilmore. Stephon’s wife took to Twitter to make it clear her husband and Cam Newton were not at dinner the night before their Covid test results were revealed.

Adam Schefter was on the radio in Boston on Wednesday morning. On the Greg Hill Show on WEEI, Schefter addressed Mrs. Gilmore’s tweet and said that what he was told is not wrong and even though both tested positive, Gilmore and Newton having dinner together shouldn’t be a problem for anyone.

“I don’t why this is an issue. Cam Newton tested positive early Saturday morning. The night before Stephon Gilmore and Cam Newton had dinner. That’s all. They didn’t do anything wrong. They had dinner. What’s the problem? It’s nobody fault. They did have dinner Friday night.”

Former NFL wide receiver and Super Bowl MVP Julian Edelman has teamed up with comedian Sam Morril to launch the Games with Names podcast.

The podcast, which will debut August 23rd, will relive the most iconic games in sports history, hence the Games with Names moniker.

“Everyone’s always talking about who the GOAT is, but Sam and I are looking for the GOAG: The Greatest of all Games,” Edelman said.

Edelman, who retired from the NFL in 2020, has already worked elsewhere in sports media. He joined the cast of Inside the NFL on Paramount+ last season.

Meanwhile, Morril was excited to get the opportunity to work with Edelman.

“Julian Edelman is a three-time Super Bowl Champion and I just got 10,000 airline miles complaining that my in flight TV didn’t work,” said Morril. “We both know how to get things done, and it was only a matter of time before we joined forces.”

The podcast will be presented by WynnBET.

Colin Cowherd once had very strong feelings about video games and esports, but apparently his mindset has changed. It’s changed so much so that Cowherd has brought on a popular Madden NFL streamer to his digital company The Volume.

Brady “Mayz” Mays has made a name for himself on YouTube streaming himself playing the popular video game. According to Yahoo, Mays channel amassed upwards of 100,000 subscribers.

“I’ve had a total change of heart,” Cowherd said in an email to Sportico. “That business is so lucrative that parents these days might be telling their kids to STOP playing outside and go inside and play some video games.”

Cowherd added that Mays, 25, brings a different level of content to the table, and that was what drew their interest in the streamer.

“At The Volume, we comb the internet for people who cut through within a specific genre,” Cowherd said. “We wanted to find a unique talent in esports, starting with Madden, and at every turn, someone on the internet was pointing to Mayz.”

“I’m excited to bring a new, innovative style of content to the table,” Mays added. “Partnering with Colin and The Volume is a testament to the growth and legitimacy of the gaming industry today.”

Mays will be the first person hired by The Volume to stream on Twitch. The newest edition of the EA Sports Madden NFL franchise drops later this week.

Thursday Night Football

The clock is ticking down until Amazon Prime Video begins its run as the home for Thursday Night Football.

But with the shift to streaming, Amazon is reportedly getting out in front of potentially lower ratings for coverage of the games than on traditional TV.

According to Ad Age, the tech giant is anticipating 12.5 million viewers tuning in each week. Last season when the games aired on FOX, the audience peaked at 20 million.

So to help curb concerns from advertisers concerning lower viewership, Amazon is reportedly working with those brands and companies to leverage their NFL ad buys into broader e-commerce ads.

Ad Age reports the price of ad time on Thursdays on Amazon has also decreased compared to what they were going for with FOX. Amazon has asked in the ballpark of $500,000 for a 30-second spot, where FOX ads had an average price of $635,439.
