CBS Sports president Sean McManus said the rules for Barkley are the same as the rules for the other analysts. "We don't put a muzzle on [our analysts]," McManus said. "We don't tell them what they can and cannot talk about. We let them self-moderate. As David said, Charles is primarily going to talk about teams and college basketball, but if he has an opinion on something, Charles is going to express it. I don't think David Levy or I are going to be in a position to tell him not to do it. But Charles understands what his role is, and I think he'll say what he thinks is appropriate. What we don't do is put muzzles on people or have meetings saying, 'Don't talk about this or that.'"
