i hope they touch on the fact that mac jones is the worst qb in his division on tonight's pod
I knew the Payton Pritchard talking point was coming but I didn’t think it was going to come so soon lol
lol I bet bill had to front tuck himself while talking about Philly being the big loser.
yep, and he was just fluffing Ryen to go in on Jim Harden
Bill complaining that the Pats employ lots of belichik family members then Sal saying yeah nepotism is the worst made me laugh
Up next, nephew Kyle with Russillo and my daughter talking about the importance of T. Swift and Travis Kelce!
Also stay tuned for my dad on rewatchables and me bringing Sal’s relation to Jimmy Kimmel!
“I asked my mom to come on the big chill podcast!!!”
“can’t believe Bill let’s his son coach”
The irony is pretty good, but we definitely understand that the stakes are a bit different right ?
you mean running one of 32 nfl teams is at a magnitude different from a podcast about movies
fuck outta here guy
This move makes the Cs the title favorite and gives them the leagues clear best 1-6 so it was mandatory.
Ok, so we understand!
Bill’s new spin that I enjoy is that he was only bullish on Mac because of where the Pats were able to get him in the draft.
Better for people to believe I’m lazy or ignorant than just plain wrong!
So Derrick White is gonna be the next guy the Boston NBA media mafia tries to inflate the perception/value of
Already is IMO.
still won't reach Austin Reaves levels
Gotta watch the games
the Boston media mafia led a cheerleading campaign to get Marcus Smart an undeserved DPOY and Malcolm Brogdon the 6MOY
Austin Reeves is considered underpaid and has won 0 awards
other than that totally the same thing
Not to mention that the one yelling loudest about Reeves is Boston’s very own Sports Guy
I remember when Alex Caruso was dismissed as just being a "meme" and "overhyped" because he was a Laker
Bill's overall tone in part 2 has me thinking he lost a shitload of money this week, especially because he keeps doing the "well I'm basically even" thing wrt his teasers and parlays
Maybe it's because I've been subjected to Mike Patrick, Rod Gilmore, etc on a regular basis for years but Collinsworth as an analyst doesn't bug me really
Gambling addicts rarely acknowledge their losses
Man I like Fennesy but he took some Ls on that Stop Making Sense pod
he still hasnt recovered from criticizing linkin park tbh
Holy shit he's about six months from being the daily wires sports reporter
I’m guessing that’s some incel account?
yes his name is Kevin O'Connor
I’d need to see the draft kings odds that he isn’t already a prolific contributor to them or a comparable publication through a nom de plume.
Fine I’ll Google growing Daniel myself
White guy from Boston
Plays lots of video games
Probably didn’t get a lot of attention from girls in his teens
If he had been born 5 years earlier he’s probably an antagonist in Gamer Gate and red pilled into a right wing media troll.
And are we sure he wasn’t at the capitol on J6?
I didn’t listen. What happened?
I love that Sheil hates Gannon just as much as the fanbase does, great rant here
1. I’ve never cared less about a subject than Harden vs Westbrook.
2. Bill is one of the worst solo pod people ever. His monologues are fucking awful.
Bill totally avoiding mentioning the fact he's down -1.336M in MDP so far
I’m stunned that anyone listens to that gimmick
Idk if Bill on smartless was discussed here. Obviously I’m very familiar with Bill but I listen to smartless enough to say that relative to other guests, Bill really is boring and uninteresting.
basically zero back story to his success and career other than the biggest beats anyone familiar would already know.
it seemed like the hosts talked over him way more than they normally do.
Funny when they asked Bill his thoughts on gambling in sports and he couldn’t conceive of a negative for kids. Also, he should’ve said that 90% of the reason he watches any other teams than Boston is for gambling purposes.
They all joked about how ridiculous it is when rich peoples kids takeover the family business. Irony: I look forward to the day Ben Simmons is shitting on CR for Philly sports.
His appearance in how I built it was similar. He doesn’t seem to love dishing on and replaying his career
Just every nuance of his child and adolescent years re film, music, and sports.
My guess is the story actually isn’t that interesting. Jumping off from the point of (paraphrasing)..” I didn’t like reading sports journalists because they were boring. I had no clue what I was doing after college so my dad suggested I pursue sports writing.”
Bill is a story of privilege but also, and this is inspiring part, just getting yourself in the mix. He did have a good line about how every year he made it a goal to be somewhere different in his life.
he definitely hit the right time jackpot a couple times with the growth of internet content for his writing and being early in the podcast arena, but he still had to put in the work to build and maintain his audience
In all seriousness he succeeded through work and that point he made about trying new things.
I never got into his writing since I discovered him as a podcaster way later. His writing is like a long form internet message board poster.
He was making pop culture references in his work at a time when most prominent sportswriters were the old blowhards you'd see on Sunday morning on the Sports Reporters
the Ramblings and Mailbag columns were legitimately funny.
He's like a band whose first album is still his best. He's the sports equivalent of Maroon 5.
He reminds me of Kevin Smith
He did something unique that was most interesting to younger people but never really progressed. Was just the same kind of pitch and when you get older you realize how vapid a lot of it is.
He was lucky that the team he cares the most about (Celtics) was good but not great in the years he made his name on Page 2. The Pats were successful but hadn't been busted for cheating yet. Most American sports fans were sympathetic to the Red Sox in the early 2000s and pulled for them over the Yankees.
I'm not sure the arrogant/spoiled by success fan version of Bill in the late 2000s and beyond would've caught on if that was America's first impression of him.
He was there first. That's what it is and that's why idiots like me still listen
