    checked out their website briefly just now, no idea what their niche is or how much I will partake from them.

    Ringer has lost almost of the talent that I really enjoyed. Losing Mayes was huge as I have just transitioned to only listening to his podcast for NFL coverage. Obviously Binge Mode was a popular podcast, not sure I will listen if they try to continue it.

    listening to guess the lines -- a 1 to 20 scale? I've never heard that. Bill is innovating again.

    I’ve enjoyed his political tweets that some of you have posted in those threads. I don’t listen to many Ringer pods so my exposure to Jason is when he’s on as a guest for something.

    Good for him

    for those 5 minutes the thought - what kind of moron comes up with a 1-20 pt scale kept running thru my head. Sal was like WTF and took it as serious as he should have.

    If I can make a recommendation, please avoid Bill and JackO’s conversation.

    A lot of complaining about cancel culture and college campuses.

    I just fired up his last ep where he talks about wanting to fight people in a pickup basketball game. He was this close to doing something.

    i miss the giant lines every week

    also, I've had the Raiders favored against the lines twice in the last two weeks (browns, chargers). I think both Buffalo and Seattle will win.

    Binge Mode MCU is the first extended listen I've ever really given Mallory. The only other stuff I've heard her on were random Rewatchables.

    I'm a fan so far. Her and Jason together are really good, even if some of the things they laugh hysterically about are odd.

    I’m enjoying Binge Mode MCU but am already behind Bc they are very long, which is a good thing Bc they never feel like they bog down in nerdy weeds. 2 hours flow nicely.


    It also makes me a little sad Network is leaving

    It was a great Pod though. I think the Russell part was unnecessary but at least comparing Iverson in the DMV to Bias was relevant. Bias was hometown and Iverson was the first transcendent player in the DMV since then even though he was from VA.

    Who is that person? Some random internet nobody?

    Russillo made a career at ESPN. Dude is fine. Some seem to be intimidated at the fact he works out and is successful. I’m sure it’s hard for some on here to comprehend.

    I’m not defensive. I stand up for myself against people like you who think everything they say is gold. You’re pretty condescending. Maybe you should examine why you are the way you are. You come off like this infallible person.
