On this episode of Talking Buffalo Podcast, Patrick Moran is joined by The Bills Guys podcast co-host Steve Mathes of the Buffalo Fanatics podcasting network for a conversation focused on the Buffalo Bills and Sabres.

Ed Oliver spoke to the media via a Zoom presser on Monday for the first time since originally being arrested in May and ultimately being cleared of any wrongdoing.  His comments were enlightening and interesting, ranging from his mindset at the of his arrest until now and how he feels about the justice system currently.  The guys play a few clips and react to comments, including Steve pointing out the frustration he’d feel if it were him and Patrick admitting that he prejudged Oliver as guilty of a few months ago without knowing all the evidence.

They also discuss the possibility of the NFL potentially playing regular Saturday and perhaps even Friday nights game this season with the growing probability that they’ll be no college football this fall, with both agreeing it will be good for fans but a struggle with schematics not to mention most players probably hating the idea.

They also spend some time talking Sabres, including a hyped official Sabres award series on social media that produced just three on-ice awards.  One of them went to Kyle Okposo and the guys have  strong takes on that and a few more awards that should’ve been handed out as well as reaction to the New York Rangers winning the NHL draft lottery on Monday night.

They wrap up by spending a few minutes talking about the Toronto Blue Jays starting to play some home games at Sahlen’s field beginning this week.

Before talking to Steve, Patrick speaks of the anxiety that’s been plaguing him personally over the potential of high school football in Florida getting cancelled and the strong possibility that in-person school won’t have sustainability anywhere.  He also reveals to Steve that he’s been working on a monster-sized quiz of his favorite TV show ever, The Office.
