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.

Hank Cooper I can’t stand first take and shows like that, but he was definitely interesting at times. They both have some good inside sources and were talking some interesting points. I wish Stephen A. was able to talk more like this. Lots of sports shows I think they feel like they need to play outrageous characters and say outrageous points.

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.

Too preachy and too much virtue signaling. Paraphrasing "if you can see it as a Black Mirror episode, don't do it." Oh really? So no youtube? The idea that creators should have thought about misuse of Facebook Live before releasing it doesn't really matter (and how do we know they didn't think about it). There is nothing to be done to stop the mentioned example of misuse. Even if they chose not to release the tech, somebody else would. The fact of the matter is this stuff is by and large used for good/non-harmful purposes. Literally every good invention has some negative implications. The net benefit should outweigh any other consideration. Might as well argue, "Edison should have considered the phonograph would lead to music that endorses misogyny."
