Remove Jimmy durkin and it's a 5/5

Ted Nguyen, T Reed, and Vic’s show everytime I hear the other guys voice I skip 30 seconds forward on apple pods. Y'all don't even with anything he says per the newest episode. I'm sure he's a good guy but he does not add value.

Good stuff

I don’t like Josh McDaniels. Love this podcast though

Disrespectful

This podcast, with the exception of Ted, seems to have a noticeable bias against the Las Vegas Raiders. The tone of their commentary often carries a sense of disrespect towards the team. It’s now clear to me why external and national media sources often report on the Raiders before this podcast does. The evident lack of enthusiasm and impartiality from the team covering the Raiders is disappointing. Perhaps it would be better if they covered a different team that they can report on more objectively and with genuine interest.
