Do you have a strong, educated sports opinion and you think you can do better than all the talking heads you see on TV? Here is your chance!.

Each week during the summer we will choose two fans to join us in the KSL Studios for a chance to debate the hottest sports topics in Utah on live television.

Here is Round 2 of "Voice of the Fan"

This Sunday we had sports fans Gardner Olson and Brad Clark.

Jeremiah Jensen - "Two new fans joining us this week. Gardner Olson, Brad Clark--both Jazz fans--we'll get right into it. Hot topic #1. Wesley Matthews signs a 5-year $32.7 million offer sheet. Front-loaded 9.2 million due like a week after the Jazz decide to match or not. Do the Jazz keep him? Do they decide to match the offer sheet?"

Clark - "I'd say they have to. Who else is out there? They gotta go after him."

Jensen - "You love Wesley Matthews that much? That's a lot of money to pay an undrafted free agent."

Clark - "It's a ton of money, and it's more than, uh, other rookies are getting in their three year initial deals, but you gotta go after him, there's nobody really out there. He's a hard worker. He's a ‘Sloan' guy."

Jensen - "Can't lose him. Gardner, what do you think."

Olson - "Portland is, uh, definitely out to get us on this one. I think we need to maybe even let him go and maybe look around. Maybe we can re-sign Brewer or someone but, I don't know, I really did like Matthews and I'd like to see what he can do."

Clark - "It doesn't really make sense why they're doing it. They have Roy--unless they're really concerned about his injuries--why are they doing it other than to stick it to the Jazz?"
