    Joanna Robinson coming to the Ringer is a pretty big get. She was probably the best at Thrones coverage back in the day and has always done my favorite TV recap pods. She's really smart and a decent replacement for Jason.

    gotta love MVP discussion 10 games into a season!

    "I feel like the Pacers could've stole the series against the Heat in 2014 with a healthy Granger!"

    Danny Granger was on the Clippers for the 2014 playoffs and was out of the league 1 year later but go off Bill, anything to discredit LeBron

    Depending on how cringe the episode sounds, you guys dumping on Bill sounding dumb makes me more likely (or unlikely) to listen to a pod than the actual promotions for it.

    I'm only halfway through the segment but I've enjoyed listening to danny kelly and schrags. it's basically a rookie update/draft stories segment.

    simmons looping in mac jones for most of the picks and dumb and unnecessary and predictable, obviously. I'm tuning him out but I'm pretty sure he unironically said that jones looks just like brady.

    Simmons has always behaved as if he can manufacture consent in sports and thus cause teams to win or lose based on narrative alone.

    It is very odd.

    Idk how else to describe this in vague terms so hopefully this does it justice. My impression of most Bill sports convos.

    Bill: So <insert fringe or hyperbolic take he believes>
    Guest that knows marginally more: Reality completely disputes that.
    Bill: Urr,well uh yeah, I mean…

    Example from today re MVP
    Bill: So Josh Allen has to be completely out.
    Sal: He’s got the second best odds
    Bill: Well yeah I mean in my mind.

    Bill asking every pick why the team didn’t draft Mac? Hm wonder why Bill didn’t move at all to draft QB1 of the future. Probably Bc everyone thinks he has a low(er) ceiling. *skipped ahead to get to this and the 9ers picked turned into talking all about how good Mac is lmao.

    I’m gonna go ahead and say the coverup of concussion data is far and away the worst thing those pricks have done. Which is also what I point to as the time I started caring less about the sport, in general.
