Concerning changes

This last episode was atrocious! Iv been listening to the podcast for just about a year, and I have really enjoyed it overall. However, over the last two weeks the show has started to nosedive. This episode was about the best defensive players in the 2022 draft and while I didn’t time it, it had to be AT LEAST Half advertisements. I have never heard so many adds in one podcast, AND IT WAS ONLY 30 minutes! I couldn’t finish the episode, and if this trend continues I will absolutely unsubscribe. My final complaint, the host spent far to much time talking about himself; I understand the recent success must feel great but this was certainly excessive. This felt way to much like sports talk radio. Please get back to the draft content we know and love, without the gimmicks.

Love This Podcast

I learn so much about the upcoming prospects

Horrible Coverage

Just listened to them discuss the top rookies, and they way the Danced around Keegan Murray who’s stellar play is proving they have no idea what they are talking about is beyond cringe worthy… Quit being so insecure, admit you were wrong and talk about the entire league instead of avoiding players that makes you look foolish!!

I’m sure when he goes through the evitable rookie slump, they’ll start talking about his play!! 🤡
