Another Thursday has landed on the calendar which means a fresh episode of the Real Life Podcast is here to help you close out the week and get you set for the weekend. This week, the guys looked at the negotiations that are happening between the NHL and players, the business of sport, and spoke to Scott Hastings from OddsShark to break down the latest news from the world of sports gambling.
Sports without fans just isn't the same… @cameroncheers joined the pod to talk about his favourite atmospheres, his wild career, and his new book 'King of Cheer'

To kick off today’s podcast, the guys got started with another discussion about how weird Tyler’s relationship is with his dad, which a running bit (it’s not a bit) on the podcast that always makes the guys laugh. With that out of the way, the conversation changed to the story that broke this past week that the Oilers were being sued by a Dallas hotel for an unpaid bill from this past season. That led to a greater discussion about the economics of the National Hockey League and how teams will be able to navigate what is unquestionably a crazy time for businesses of all types. Looking at the negotiations between the players and league that are happening right now, it’s going to be incredibly interesting to see how the upcoming season actually shakes out. Needless to say, we’re in line for an NHL season that is unlike any we’ve seen before and the boys cannot wait to see what both sides have to do to get themselves back on the ice. Lastly, the guys wrapped up today’s podcast by welcoming Scott Hastings from OddsShark to help break down the latest betting trends from the NFL, and the latest news in the world of sports.
