Johhhhhhhhnnnnnny ,

Excellent info and discussions

Reid has such good guests and really dives into the alt-football news. No fan boy stuff here, just really solid content.

Pat-Rif ,

Amazing

Reid and all his guest do a great job in bringing an inside look into the all the leagues he covers. Great supporter of the USFL as well going down to BHam

ThePhilJordan ,

Great XFL & CFL podcast, USFL not so much

Reid should just drop the USFL content since he hates it so much. If you want good XFL and CFL content this is the show for you. If you like the USFL there are many other great shows to check out. I tapped out due to it being so anti-USFL.
