Episode details

His 2009 Minnesota Vikings fell victim to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship, but it's not "Bountygate" that pisses off Ben Leber to this day. Far from it. I think you'll be surprised by his thoughts on that iconic game, Gregg Williams and this sport's ruthless reality.

Also, we discuss the state of youth sports in America, playing with Junior Seau as a rookie in San Diego, his best memories from a 10-year NFL career and Leber's expectations for the 2023 Minnesota Vikings. Today, he's a sideline analyst for the team, in addition to co-hosting Twin Cities Live. Follow Ben on Twitter @nacholeber.
