not sure i remember a line like the bills-texans this week. sort of chortled when sal revealed it.
Sal was in a feisty mood. That was pretty fun. Anytime he makes fun of Schrager is good with me
that was good.
Sal: Does he want to fight me?
Bill: you made him seem like a Pats pick lackey
Sal: Well he is. You picked them to go to the Super Bowl and he just said "yeah yeah yeah"
Bill: "oh my lord"
Bill “The Patriots run two TE’s out there. They call it 12.”
That’s what everyone calls it. Got a chuckle out of that.
Bill on the upcoming NE v. Tampa SNF game: "I think we can hang. We were missing some guys today."
So glad he thinks he can win. Hope Tampa demolishes them.
I like Sal in that forum, but cannot handle him and his pals on his own Podcast network. I feel kinda bad about it but I can’t do it.
Can someone explain the “Vegas Zone” to me? Bill says Vegas assigns 5 or 5.5 lines when “they’re not even sure what to do with the line”.
Isn’t 5 pt line mean Vegas thinks 1 team is 5 points better than the other, +/- whichever team has home field?
it's not near a regular scoring number so Bill calls it that because in his opinion they split between 3 and 6/7 and see where the action pushes the line. Most of their guesses they kind of go from around 3 to around 7.
admittedly I am always trigger shy on games that are -4 through -5.5. So I get it.
Well yeah he’s on there with clay Travis hard pass
"I didn't have a dog in this race" -bill
Who has the guess the lines site for ryan mallet
"I've always kinda liked Aaron Rodgers" - Bill
I wonder what point Bill will stop calling the Cowboys "your stupid team" when they're gonna be way better than the Pats this year and beyond
Wtf is Simmons talking about when he said the MSM is only focusing on cases and not talking enough about how deaths and hospitalization has gone down?
That is exactly incorrect from what I’ve seen.
Lol at Bill saying the Pats lost last week because they didn’t want to show anything to Tampa Bay like they’re playing LA Monroe with LSU on the schedule for next week. Maybe they’re saving a couple of things for TB, but to think they’re not doing everything they can to win a regular season game so they can win the following week is absurd.
Guys I can’t wait to listen to this Bill vs Tom pod. So excited!
I realize Bill's whole thing is no-selling it anytime unflattering things happen to Boston teams but come on
In a hypothetical where lets say Phil Jackson pushes Kobe out, then Kobe wins another title for some random franchise while the Zen Master misses the playoffs entirely, I'd wanna drown Phil in Flathead Lake immediately
I really like wickersham so I listened. Laughed when Bill said “well schraeger just told me what Matt Cassell said on nfl network this morning” and just pictured that dude firing off texts to Bill anytime the Pats are mentioned
this wasnt even the most embarrassing thing those two jackasses cooked up during that pod
Give me a Bucs 28 point win. If only Red Sox choked. With cowboys going to 3-1, could be a great Monday
Sox won’t win the WC and losing to the Yankees is going to kill Bill.
but, TB drubbing NE tonight is the coup de grace.
Jacko definitely coming in the Wednesday pod
Everyone pick up a pack. You’ll want one afterward.
Glad they lost. Gonna be a Macgasm though
however he wants to cope rooting for a mediocre 1-3 team
He is definitely gonna double down on 11 wins. Gonna run through the schedule and say “I only see 3 more losses” while ignoring several other losses
We'll never forget where we were when we saw Mac Jones complete a ton of passes under 15 yards in a row
"Let Mac cook!"
Bill said, “I thought the Pats were joking” on the 56 yd FG to try to draw an offsides
that is shit my wife would say
I thought for a second he was trying to get them offsides or something too. Kicking a 57 yarder in the rain with that kicker was a stupid decision.
one of bill's shittier personality traits is that he is ostensibly the host but basically just talks to the guests about his own teams. they talked about the sunday night game for like 20 minutes and sal's team for about 30 seconds
oh it was a valid strategy to draw them offsides
but who refers to that as “joking” like Simmons did, it came off to me super amateurish
but honestly what I should expect
Bill has no interest in talking about his friends’ teams if they are having success. When the Nationals won the World Series, Bill made House wait several segments before he could even talk about it and then he gave him like 5 minutes. Yet every time something embarrassing or bad happens to the Sixers or Jets he’ll have on Chris Ryan or Fennessey or whoever to laugh at their misery. Major only child energy.
They talked about the cowboys white a bit today
Starting off podcasts with “WHATS UP EVERYBODY I’M JJ JOHN JASTREMSKI!” at full volume should warrant a class action suit against the Ringer
At least the awful Len Bias series had that hilarious “And then…cocaine” drop in the promos
Advertising New York and Chicago podcasts that no one cares about is neat
to be fair, im pretty sure house was an oriole fan that made the switch like four years ago when the getting was good
Bill losing confidence in the thinking man’s Hunt and Chubb
Can’t wait to listen. As they mention in the beginning, it’s too bad Russillo didn’t join them. I thought he would have.
What I expected him to look like:
what he actually looks like:
from start to finish, how many sox games do you think bill has watched this year? 10?
Ringer is wasting the BBQ guys. And then you've got the 3 writers/nerds (not an insult, just how I would explain them) who host the other MLB show. And yet Bill will have on one of his buddies to talk about the game. He has not promoted any of the Ringer MLB guys at all.
because they'd expose that he doesn't actually watch games
God I forgot they even joined the ringer. If only they were as talented as House they’d have more of a spotlight.
First pitch to last pitch? Zero. Followed close enough to have an intelligent conversation? I'd say 15-20.
Why are random words like “four” bleeped out?
It’s clear lives a decent amount of his life through the lense of how much shit he’s able to talk to friends and acquaintances. How does one not age out of this, even as a sports media personality.
i swear i remember bill saying he had zero interest in baseball this year because the red sox were supposed to be bad. also something about him holding a permanent grudge against them for trading betts. maybe that was last year though
it was last season, this season he was actually right (broken clocks and such) about the Red Sox saying they'd be better than their low 80s over/under win total because he liked their bats
I don’t care about baseball so my only real exposure to listening to people talk about it are Bill and Jacko. Fans of the Red Sox and Yankees who would only complain about how terrible their teams were and how all their players but like 3 guys were shit.
