I love you guys but…

I love you guys I listen everyday on the podcast. However I don’t believe by any means should E-Sports competitors be considered olympians. This isn’t track and field, swimming, gymnastics, basketball, soccer, volleyball, etc. I respect what E-Sports competitors do, and their commitments to the profession. They are not Olympians. They are not doing anything physically dynamic. There are competitions made up for E-Sports. I can’t compare a gymnast, sprinter, swimmer, or cyclist to a competitive game player. I’m sure you disagree and I’m not trying to say you can’t feel the way you feel. I just don’t agree.

I want to give 5 stars, but first you get rid of Nate & now Callie (sorry if I misspelled)? Keep letting your talent go, & people will follow the talent. I’m not loyal to checkpoint and could care less about Beasley group. I listen for the people involved behind the mic. Take care of your people & they’ll take care of you. Still supporting the remaining cast, thank you guys for doing what you do. Hoping both Nate & Callie find success, will tune in if either or both put anything out.
