    They have 11 guys for a 10 team league and the winner from the prior season gets to kick someone out AT the draft

    Dameshek bought a Cameo from Fred Lynn (Bill's favorite Red Sox player growing up) breaking the news

    i'm not a big nfl person so i don't listen to the ringer nfl show

    i gave the season preview a listen this afternoon and it was horrible. i can't imagine the nba show is anywhere as bad as this.

    i think there was consensus on perhaps 90% of the teams as to what they'd do this coming year. no one really entertained other scenarios as to who has a chance at a division. and the host clark went on a bunch of weird tangents that didn't involve the other people.

    every time i ever tried listening to their NFL show it was just Clark smugly criticizing 90% of the GMs in the league as being stupid and basically all conversations would end in "well the Pats are gonna win the Super Bowl anyways so..."

    oh and lots of name-dropping by Clark as well. I remember one time he was on with Russillo on the BS pod and after the 3rd or 4th name drop Russillo was like "you talk to a lot of people..." It was an excellent neg.

    ZeroPointZero the guess the lines pod is a must listen for you.

    i thought the simmons kicked out of the league thing was kind of overdone and the cameo video was overhyped but simmons whines like i've literally never heard him before to sal about the kick. it happens right before the guess the lines segment.

    Him acting like he has always hated the kicking-people-out aspect of his league, when him and Sal have laughed about kicking their friends out omnprevious pods for years and years was very enjoyable to listen to.

    That combined with the petty anecdote about him ruining the usual suspects for jack o leads me to believe Bill was probably incredibly insufferable to play pick up with.

    I need those stories.

    don't remember too much but i think it was just a case where supposedly Dameshek had a messy divorce and Mrs Simmons took the side of the ex-wife, and since the couples couldn't hang out together anymore it was a wrap

    Listened to BIll's pod with Raja Bell taped before game 7.

    - Raja is really, really good on pods and I'm going to start listening to more of him
    - That was an all-time cringe worthy performance from Bill, which I give Raja even more credit for dealing with. So much stuff in that pod that just made me wonder if he ever listens to how he sounds when he says that stuff. And it's not just the normal homer stuff, either. It's the "I know for a fact Tatum is more comfortable because there are no camera people under the basket..." type stuff that just makes him sound like such a weirdo.

    Raja is great. The pods with him and Logan are a good listen. However, Logan has a habit of repeating several “catchy” phrases and I find it a little obnoxious.

    Listened to several different pods generally praising bills today, albeit with some worthy reservations.


    The moment the bills get mentioned, Bill just shits on them and says they didn’t look good at all. Mind you, he picked Jets +6.5.

    He is 100 percent pissed that the majority of analysts, including those at the Ringer, picked Buffalo to win the AFC East
