Fix the delay

I really like this podcast but the format does not work well with a delay issues when one of them is off-sight. Maybe because it is live on TV when recorded but it is hard at times to listen because of the delay. Also, Max, I love you big dog, but he has to stop jumping in when someone is in the middle of making a point.

Cowboy Cerone/ Marcus Spears

Jerzyxplorer

Hey this is a great debate. Marcus Spears doesn’t pose bias. I love it this podcast should get anything less 4 stars ever. Only angry Cowboys fans are giving this podcast low marks. Get over yourselves!

Cowboy cerone is a tough interview. Not the most engaging interview out there but that’s still my guy. That’s why he needs to go on with Ariel or Chael so they can ask the right questions

Nothing like first take

I love to watch the show and do record it at home. Typically don’t get the chance to watch unless I can tell when I listen to the podcast it’s something special. With that said can’t say enough about the debates and the guests. Top notch real accurate sports news and great entertainment. Molly, max, and Steven are simply the best. Nobody compares!!
