    How many ped references would Bill make if he was talking about any other 42 year old qb being able to run faster now than 10 years ago?

    I just ordered Mizzen and Main but couldn’t find the ringer code so used honey to get $10 off instead. Not great work there Bill. Tried to give him credit.

    she seems way too talented to be at the current iteration of ESPN

    Bill sounding like bill on the Luck news.

    Dude bitches about people being upset about tweets while talking about those tweets on his show that people are getting upset about. You can tell he wants to do the “this millennial omg he fucked his team” hot take, but no longer has the courage to be on an island. And of course, the Patriots come up often.

    I forgot my lukewarm take

    Bill said of Luck, “maybe he’ll announce”.

    Ok. Luck knows the game, but there’s no evidence he can announce. In fact, what I do know is that Luck has a really deep and awkward sounding voice. I think this is a clear sign Bill’s hearing is fucked, and that’s why 90% of Ringer podcast hosts have annoying voices.

    Yeah Luck could be the best analyst on earth and he still couldn’t do announcing with that voice.

    This is part of the reason Romo is the perfect announcer; he’s got a great announcing voice to go along with the insights he provides.

    how were the Heat the last team that was hated? I know he wants to suck Kevin Durant's dick as much as possible but he can't be THAT oblivious to how much people hated the Warriors after that right? also the Patriots still exist

    the entire Warriors team wasn't as hated as the Heat but Durant most certainly was, if not more IMO. I'd have to listen back if he was specifying only teams or if he was saying villains in general

    No, not even close. In basketball I would say the Heat were the last hated. ZeroPointZero is right in that the Pats are in football and pretty much everyone is rooting against the Red Sox/Yanks if they make the post season unless you are a fan of them.

    The Death Star Warriors were definitely hated, which was almost remarkable because most casual fans or fans of shitty teams that never had to play the Warriors(me) generally enjoyed/rooted for the Warriors until Durant got there. That flipped it entirely, but it was mostly Durant hate I supposed. I could never renounce my Klaytheism

    Agree with this. The Warriors had already built a significant following before Durant got there because of Curry/Klay and the first title run. There was no possible way that team could be hated like Miami was, because no one cared about Miami until LeBron got there.

    I don't know what the conversation was because I haven't listened, so maybe that's semantics that don't matter. There's no way the Warriors were hated on anywhere near the same level as Miami was when they first came together, though.

    If you hate Klay you are awful.

    Warriors get a lot more hate because of the yuppy Bay Area fans too

    see: Giants when they won the WS, 49ers when they were good, etc

    Luck isn’t the type to announce or commentate. He will be an Ashton Kutcher type investor more likely and be a minority owner in a team more like it

    It all stems from how Lebron went about it. That's what pissed people off and then them having a huge WWE introduction announcement in the arena.

    I'm not suggesting the Warriors weren't hated by people. I simply don't think the level of anger against them ever rose to the levels of the Heat those first couple season after they teamed up. Some of that is because the Warriors were already together and just added a player that made them unstoppable instead of three stars teaming up at once. A lot of it also because I think most people who watch the NBA look back on those Miami teams and think it was kind of stupid how much hate LeBron and that team got.
