Fantastic insider niner coverage

Great job guys. Best objective and intelligent coverage of the team. You guys should do at least twice a week, everyone would eat it up!

wwechamps say no ,

Lombardis is just tough to listen to

Matt barrows and Dennis brown are great. Move off Lombardi. He spends most of the time slapping himself on the back and giving out wrong information. He changes who is to blame based off the qb and their skin color.

Unprofessional

This podcast is recorded while they’re out at lunch or in an airport or whenever. They’re obviously half-a**ing it. In todays podcast there was loud foreground noise of typing, paper tearing, etc. Just unlistenable. I’m an Athletic subscriber and they need to do better.
