    So now you know how it feels to be talked down to. That’s what you and a few others on here do all the time. You make asinine assumptions.

    if you can't handle people taking shots at sports media personalities without taking it as some personal attack that you must defend, leading you down a path of whatever this is, you probably aren't cut out for message boards

    i've avoided even giving my opinion of what I think your specific hang ups are, I just think you'd get some benefit from self reflection about what causes you strife on this here board

    I’ve listened to Russillo since college and still enjoy him in the right moments but I don’t think there’s any question he’s not nearly as fun to listen to anymore. It has nothing to do with him having large biceps lol

    his facial hair choices have been bizarre for 5+ years now. if you have a chin like that, there are ways to disguise it and still have a beard or at least a goatee. i never understood why a dude who is on tv all the time and has plenty of money still rocked that look

    and yes i realize it's a mugshot

    I don’t have strife. I like Bill and The Ringer. It just just seems anytime I give you pushback you decide to psycho analyze me. It’s usually way off base but considering your huge ego it’s not surprising.

    I like some of Ryen’s podcasts and I like it when he’s on Bill’s podcasts. I never listened to him at ESPN but I get why he’s had a successful career.

    Every time an nba player pushes his way to a certain place Russillo literally says the same thing. “I’m typically very pro player, but I’m not going to blindly support what the player is doing. Which is why __insertNBAstar__ is going about this wrong”

    i think russillo is one of the funniest people at the ringer and the jokes he throws when he's self-aware are great

    he and KOC are on the nba draft pre-show and him saying he doesn't talk to MJ, MJ is more of a will cain guy was hilarious

    House/Sharp episodes have been legit enjoyable in a way I didn’t expect this year. Vernon’s are fine. I still listen if I have time but the chemistry of the Friday show is getting pretty good.

    Russillo trolling KOC and BS on Terry to start the draft recap was good. They hyped him like crazy and he got picked exactly where he was originally projected.

    Believe Simmons said the lock was RJ Hampton going top 15 in the pre draft pod with Russillo and Bell.

    Hampton went 24th

    I'm not going to defend Simmons on that stuff because I don't care about him, but that article makes me think the Ringer people just like to complain a lot and love to run to the press about every grievance they have. It's getting kind of ridiculous at this point, and is to the point where these articles are just feeding the next one where people are going to complain no matter what.

    I agree. I get the general point that Simmons sucks and he handled the union poorly. But there sure are a lot of silly articles written about minor grievances.

    I liked Russillo’s rant about the “GMA-ing” of these draft shows where they’ve gone from analyzing players and team fits, and instead do sappy stories on players with some sort of sad past. I’d much rather listen to Fran Fraschilla and Jay Bilas arguaimg about someone than Malika Andrews trying to get the player to cry in his living room.

    It's a hillarious image of Russillo just terrorizing the geeks in that office with wedgies and titty twisters. Maybe try to get them to fall for the old impossible sit up gag.

    That’s been the Olympic coverage for the last 20 or so years.

    “Stay tuned for our upcoming feature about how Alexi Sven got a hangnail in the 3rd grade, was kicked out of boarding school, and thought his dream of becoming the world’s top male figure skater was gone forever.”


    I’m really loving Logan Murdock’s sense of humor. He is absolutely crushing the cross-pod ad reads. I think he’s still trying to impress Raja on Real Ones, but once he gets more comfortable enough to geek out it will be an amazing pod.
