Good but Windhorst ego a bit much

I like this podcast but sometimes there’s too much of Windhorst ego and he talks over people and interrupts them, which is not a great listen. Lots of good guests and info and I like the interplay with him, Bontemps, & McMahon

5 stars when bontemps isn’t on

OMG espn, please give bontemps his walking papers.
Usually when i listen to this pod, i just forward past the parts when he speaks.
Which, unfortunately, may be 75% of the show.
He is just plain awful.
Not to mention his analyzing of players is completely incorrect and atrocious.

I think i’m done with this altogether.

These guys…

Keep McMahon but lose Bontemps. He requires too high of a horse.
