Keith Olbermann doesn't want you to tune into the three days of the 2015 NFL Draft on his own network, ESPN, or Saturday's bout between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. Why? Because of two people: Mayweather and Jameis Winston. Both athletes have been involved in off-the-field issues of varying degrees and their transgressions are being rewarded in their own respective sports. 

With Winston, Olbermann points to his sexual assault allegations which have clouded his image, but probably won't dissuade the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from taking the former Seminoles quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick. As for Mayweather, Olbermann says, “He should-be been banned for life by his sport two, or five, or ten years ago. I will not promote, watch, nor report on Mayweather’s fight."
