    I think they are good foils for Bill on the podcast. I still like them. My favorite pods are the three of them.

    i didn't even bother with the F&F rewatchable because i don't love the franchise. i think it's more of a meme.

    but if you're going to do that movie, shouldn't you instead do Point Break? isn't that way more interesting? Keanu Reaves, Patrick Swayze, Gary Busey, directed by Kathryn Bigelow after developing it with James Cameron (her husband at the time)? Fast & the Furious is practically a beat-for-beat remake of the film and it itself had a modern remake a couple of years ago.

    i'd much rather listen to a Point Break podcast and all of the tangents Point Break would go on versus F&F.

    to be fair, I've never seen less buzz for a potential championship team locally than with the Rams. That's not to say they don't have some fans but when the Lakers or Dodgers have been in the Finals/World Series, you know. Laker flags and Dodger hats in abundance, not much Rams gear that I've seen around. I'm in Orange County but it just really doesn't have the same feel as when I lived in Denver or San Diego. I wouldn't do much Rams content just because it's a pretty limited readership.

    I don't listen to his stuff very often anymore, but it always has been insulting. Especially the Celtics stuff.

    I also hate listening to him talk about the NBA because it's all about what he's hearing from his people and how anyone who has any other info is wrong because he hasn't heard it. Telling your audience every time that you have better info than anyone on any major NBA story just gets sad after a while.

    I loved Russilo’s super bowl memories. Not sure if that was Espn pod or ringer. Also the Atlanta stories about trying to get into parties was good.

    I don't listen to Russillo often, but I'm familiar with him to know he's got something, but what he's got is about 30% of what he thinks he's got, which is why I don't listen.

    To each his own. I didnt have much time to listen SVP & Russillo or Kanell & Russillo. I enjoy his podcasts with Bill and his Dual Threat had had some good guests(Joe Buck, Dilfer, McShay, Drew Henson).

    I was team Russillo way back in the early SVP show days. I liked him on the radio because he seemed different from most of the people in the genre, and being with SVP made his chip on the shoulder thing work because they could turn it into a joke. Since SVP left, it's like his filter is gone and he has nowhere to hide that chip or his ego, which is why I liked him less and less. If I was more of a podcast guy I would probably still listen to a lot of his stuff, but he's lost me over the years and it's probably not going to get better hanging out with Simmons more.

    idk, I actually quit following that pod bc he had a murder's row of bad guests. McShay is pretty uninformed on the draft compared to a lot of other analysts especially early on because he does sideline work during the season (among other reasons). Andy Benoit, Cowherd, Kanell, Booger McFarland, etc.

    I really like Russillo. I liked his and Simmons’ NBA trade deadline pod. Their rant on how miserable NBA players seem to be now was spot on imo.

    That's the only thing I can think of. I haven't seen it yet because the wife doesnt want to. I was waiting for it to come to On Demand but Bill ruined the ending on his BS Podcast last week so now I dont even care to see it. First time I have hated Bill for a short period.

    Creed and Get Out having episodes don't make me surprised by this getting one

    it is out on demand already

    iirc they'd have to flag it if they got paid to do it, the more likely scenario is its award season and they want to capitalize on the clicks anything to do with it is getting

    that's pretty much exactly what it was.

    His talk was about how he wishes all CEOs were women and all NBA owners were black so people would see nothing would change. Which I guess is a correct take but not really sure why we need the ownership bootlicking. He also got a nice complaint in about how all rich white people are painted in a bad light in the media.

    my bro moved to the PNW and immediately felt like he had to lean a certain way so as not to feel like part of the leftist herd.

    He can have whatever views he wants, but I just like his NBA takes and wanted to hear them post-football season so I can get locked into the league.

    I can't stand his NBA takes because he acts like he's the only person in the world with sources. Anyone who disagrees clearly doesn't know what he's talking about because SOURCES TELL ME.
