    Guessing that happens to them at a lot of places. I'm sure they take advantage of it in all aspects except when they're filming Strapped. I would.

    felt like the final episode of Strapped ever to me, but I hope not because it's the best thing they do.

    felt even more like the final episode ever with them releasing the Strapped posters today.

    That would be surprising to me considering they only continue to grow.

    yeah, I hope my feel was wrong, but as they grow they can produce bigger stuff too. It's nest supported so maybe I'm way off.

    either way, great episode.

    Ending Strapped doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me.

    Seems like they could be setting up a band type comeback tour. The Myrtle montage was perfect.

    KVV claiming on the refuge it wasn't preplanned to blow the budget in Myrtle. I sort of thought it was a writers room decision as did a few others.

    As a outside party, but one frequently with access to inside information, I would like to bear witness here and say the twist was 100 percent genuine, not pre-planned.

    Let's be clear here though, Lowery is probably one of the dudes that was signed up with LIV until Phil blew everything up

    Lowry is attached to LIV too, I think.

    Edit: he may have backed out after the Phil stuff.

    Westy was trending towards a fun personality in the late stage of his career.

    I'm steeling this from a tweet I saw that I won't end up finding, but if he said "this is my profession, I am just trying to make what I can for my family while I can." ... coming from a guy that is once divorced so a good chunk of his career earnings... I feel like people would be more sympathetic than his whatabout... message strategy.

    In other words the Clay Davis "where you think I raised money for the whole damn ticket, laundromats and shit?"

    Not condoning it in any way, but you have to take into account the fact that the Saudis controlling professional sports in Europe is a very regular thing at this point. It likely doesn’t faze the European players. Their favorite soccer stars are all on Saudi payrolls already.

    He signed a contract after he won the Open to play in the Saudi tournament but wasn't a LIV guy.

    You’re absolutely right, I painted with an extra broad brush there. But you also alluded to the point I was making. European athletes accepting money from questionable Middle Eastern sources is a very normal thing at this point, even if it does come with some outside protest.

    Yeah that’s the idea behind sports washing. To normalize it.

    that’s what many ppl are arguing against in golf.

    Some fun for the thread which I’m sure I will regret.

    I entered a match play tournament at work, my first match is next week at a course I’ve never played before. I haven’t touched a club since before Christmas and I have to give my opponent 3 strokes.

    Predict what you think will happen
