Finally unfollowed. Became tired of poor takes (like a few weeks ago that there were a bunch of mystery Trubisky fans that don't exist in real life). But worse is the unneeded and unkind fanbase bashing.

Thanks Bill! Not picking the Spurs to make the playoffs means they'll probably go deep.

Didn’t realize Bill was in the tank for authoritarian governments. He doesn’t even have the espn excuse that corporate Disney clamps down on opinion that would hurt their movie business. It’s not that complicated Bill. Unsubscribing and saving myself six hours every week. It’s freeing.

A little baseball talk is fine but Bill's long rants that reveal he doesn't understand what "value" means are obnoxious. It's not about how good your team is, it's about how much value you bring. If Trout hypothetically makes them 20 wins better and that's more than any other player, he is MVP, by clear definition. It should have very little to do with how good his teammates are.

so... I understand the fact that they (browns) had 180+ penalty yards.... and the play calling wasn't great... I understand that Mariota doesn't look spectacular... or a top 10 QB.... but you're giving us (Titans) absolutely.... absolutely no credit for that win.... not even our defense? we had Baker shook.... especially in the 4th quarter... 3 pics, 5 sacks... a safety..... I love ya bill, love the pod... but come on man.... we deserve at least SOME credit for that.....

Stephen A. Smith is terrible. skipping over that part for sure. Please don't invite him anymore, unless you make a ton money off of him.

NBA mid season tournament winner gets better draft status. Make the tourney only for teams that missed the playoffs last year. Players get money and teams get a perk. It could either be something like an extra pick right after the lottery or it could bump your pick up by up to 5 spots, something like that.
