Much like with Christianity, someday after I'm dead, when people are forming a religion around me, there will be a big split between those who don't believe in the literal divinity of my lifestyle and

Bomani is the worst. It has nothing to do with his skin color.

Pipo is great. I know those guys. I get some stuff translated by a Cuban friend I turned on to it

 

The show is just full troll now. I still listen out of habit and the occasional good segment, but it’s mostly shit now. And don’t get me started on the Johnny come lately sycophants on twitter telling people they don’t get the show

 

I listen to the local hour which is a full troll, and the best of, which seems to be just cutting in the troll stuff and cutting out the real content. I turned off the Legler stuff, which i’m sure was great on tv, but not good radio. He came back from a break apologizing about getting the Reid vs Jenkins stuff wrong, but they didn’t play it in the best of.

 

Plus, he yelled at Allison to shut up a few times when she was taking as the reaper, yet that gag is dead and stupid, and you couldn’t hear her on radio. And either fire Cote and shut up about it

 

Plus, stu isn’t even trying. Just a total parrot. You can tell when he repeats a joke. “How bout that?” Is his tell

 

Plus the this guy bit was Hochmans, and Hochman was funnier.

 

Clearly mostly over the show. Still enjoy Mike, Billy and Chris in the proper doses.

I was disappointed when all the people were brought back to say Happy Birthday to Dan, that Hoch wasn't one of them. I mean to have ****ing reggie, and not Hoch is just disrespectful. Hoch said on twitter that he even offered to do one, but was told no. I want to know what the behind the scenes beef is like between him and mike ryan.

Highly Questionable is basically the only non-game programming that I can stomach watching on ESPN

 

Everything else, is just like watching Paul Finebaum or nails scratching on a chalkboard. Not sure what is worse

my opinions on media are respected the internet over. i will say that lately i have really been enjoying the Bill Simmons Podcast. The end of year compilation of all the "parent corner" segments he and cousin sal did on the guess the lines pod was great. then his nil stuff and now one with Adam McKay. Plus the Godfather Reqatchables. I liked them all.

That was great and confirms most of what I assumed. Dan's an ass and the show is much worse than it would have been with Marc.

Well it is wholly from Hoch's pov. If it's true dan was no longer even looking at Hochman towards the end of their run, there had to be a reason why, other than Dan was an ass. I did find the level of acrimony at the end to be shocking, and I'm sad that Hoch isn't invited to Dan's wedding, given their personal history together. Again, there has to be more to this story than what Hoch presented. That Zaslow stopped talking to Hoch, and has never spoken to him to this day, leads me to believe that working with Hoch must not be a peach.

 

I will say, given Dan's view of tyrant head coaches, the fact that Hoch has never had a boss yell at him like Dan has to be really hypocritical, if true. The Dan Lebatard Orbit I find to be really, really interesting.

I totally get that this is one-sided, but even filtering for bias, statistically some of that stuff happened. And if even 20% of it happened, which feels really conservative, my conclusion would be the same.

 

For example, no boss should ever scream at his employees for any reason. Full stop.

This is horrible.

No doubt.
