I wouldn't go that far! I would say that he has been the victim in a knee jerk reaction society. The whole process last year was a mob lynching on the media's part. The topic of beating your wife is not something that anyone is going to defend (nor should they). But in today's (or last year's) race for headlines and clicks no one seemed interested in looking at the evidence. For the, with the number of time the police were involved and he was never charged with anything pointed to a situation where 2 crazy ass people couldn't coexist. That said, he is one of those crazy ass people and he seems to openly admit his part in that toxic scenario.
This pod cast is interesting. I am really interested in the football topics and some of the behind the scenes stuff. I am also listening to this with a grain of salt. He clearly had an ax to grind with Ed and Tom. Smith destroyed Ed's football knowledge but IMO got petty when he brought up Ed's wife and his perceived vendetta against him and him highlighting the flight attendant's comments about Herman being bad in bed.
Much like I viewed the all the stuff last year during the investigation and the media coverage of this, I'm paying attention but this podcast is his side of all these situations. He has pointed his finger at many others and not many specifics of his own short comings. Only about his "eeeelite" WR's and how Meyer clearly thought his was the greatest WR coach ever cause he had him on a 3 year plan to be a head coach. Obviously, the short comings of his "eeeeelite" WR core was Warinner's fault! Yes, can't argue he recruited some great ones but its pretty strange that they didn't actually deliver till after he left, must have been some one else's fault.
One last thing...I'm certainly not the only one that cringes every time one of the other lackey's on the podcast talks am I?
