Monday, September 17th

The NFL story du jour this Commercial Free Monday is how Bills cornerback Vontae Davis called it quits during halftime of Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Wow. Since Dana & Jayson figured he wasn't alone in cutting himself from the team, we hit the phones to let you share your stories of walking out on Alt 949.
