Judd, why?

Would be five stars if this was the Mackey and Ramie show. The negative Judd bit has run its course. He’s 1/3 of the show but speaks 2/3 of the time. Makes for an easy listen because I fast forward anytime he starts speaking but it would be easier if he were granted early retirement.

Too much Judd

Judd is so negative I can’t stand to listen anymore. He seems to find a way to bad mouth every exciting player we have. Wiggins, Buxton, Cousins and Cook are big time targets. Still picking on Wiggins after he’s gone. I seriously think he’s jealous of them.Also ramie’s incessant freaked laughter over topics that are not even funny. But all 3 rollick around the mics for over an hour. The few minutes of serious sports talk with Wetmore and Reusse earned my 1 Star.

Must listen

Overall terrific coverage with a good mix of positivity and criticism for MN sports teams. Ramie is a great addition, he seems like he just really enjoys his job and has good takes and isn’t afraid to laugh at himself. Great show guys!
