Join the GCL crew this week for a spirited discussion about the look of today's athletes. It's not just about a strong jaw and a chiseled abdomen these days. Now players are getting scrutinized for their body art. From Miami's Birdman to SF's Colin Kaepernick, journalists and fans alike are begrudging players with too much ink. Are they a bad example for the youth of America or are grown ups overreacting?

Jason Reid, Washington Post Sports Columnist will join us to discuss his article about John Wall potentially hurting his marketability after recently getting some body after after having previously stating he wouldn't get a tattoo. The article has sparked a lot of conversation & the GCL Crew will find out more about the basis of Reid's theory.

We'll also speak with BJ Schecter, Executive Editor of SI.com about the state of journalism, SI's philosophy and how he and his crew ride the line between getting the story first and getting the facts straight. You won't want to miss it!

Join us Wednesday at 7pm EST for A New View from the Sidelines!
