Skip Bayless & Dak Prescott's Depression

Brandy J. Flynn rejoins the show to discuss the recent commentary of the controversial FOX Sports commentator, Skip Bayless.

Listen on your favorite podcasting platform here.

Duration: 12 mins.

Normally, it's a Skip Bayless tweet that upsets folks, but this time it was live and on the air on FOX Sports.  Dak Prescott, quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, recently revealed that he was depressed over his brother's suicide back in April.  A lot of people don't know what depression looks like.  Was Skip out of line when he questioned Dak Prescott's mental toughness because he chose to express himself publicly?

Brandy is a mental health specialist as well as a mental health analyst in sports.  She was the first person who came to my mind when I wanted to discuss this topic.  So, I'm bringing to you professional's point of view on whether it was fair or foul for Skip to belittle Dak as the leader of his team because Dak showed vulerability.
