    Incredibly disappointing how little they talked about it/Ryen not pressing him on his post-Decision column.

    Also, it’s embarrassing how often Bill forgets to turn his mic on/it’s not charged. I don’t understand this.

    Havent listened yet but I couldnt care less about The Decision. It was beaten into the ground by everyone. It was ten years ago and it worked out for everyone involved at the end.

    bill brings it up in any lebron discussion as the biggest critique in his off the court career

    leaving out that he was uniquely responsible for it is kind of a big deal for a decade

    Ryen is just happy not to be canceled. Forget pressing bill on anything.

    But didn’t Bill still the idea from a reader and not give credit?

    Why make excuses for Bill that he got cut out of an idea that he stole from someone else?

    Why would I not care about facts? I was saying I am tired of hearing about it. I never cared about it. I skipped over that part in the pod today just like I did Cam. I couldnt care less about the Patriots. I went straight to the Redraft.

    Two things can be true:

    1. It is a great idea for ESPN ( or any network)
    2. Bad idea for Lebron.

    I’ve probably asked this before but does anyone know the origin of Ryen becoming a big SEC guy?

    Does he have any connection whatsoever?

    I think ( think) that its because he did College Gameday radio and was down there a lot and understandably so fell in love with it.

    Just from his listening to his Ringer pods he likes CFB and working at ESPN it was a major focus so he traveled to a lot of games.

    SVP and Russillo got me through my post-grad years, I listened to every show for a few years there.

    He was always a bit of a douche, but that’s was always part of the bit in my mind. Obviously shifted in past couple of years. Maybe working with Cain and Kannel made him think he should talk politics more lol.

    Me and my buddy always said him choosing Cain over Adnan for his cohost really gave it away.

    Ya, Russillo went from being with a steady star like SVP, then to a troll in Kannel (who i didn’t hate but is not really someone I want to regularly listen to), then a fox news talking head in Cain, and now is on his own and unchecked. Things have just been getting worse since SVP step away from radio.

    I hadn’t ever seen it but I watched it on Sunday. Very, very 80s. I didn’t mind it but I don’t think it compares to The Breakfast Club or some of the other iconic 80s movies.
