Typical race baiting from Foxworth. Can't just use individual discernment, everything has to be about race...lazy logic.

Russilo's sale pitch for watching soccer..."you can do other stuff while the game is on". Sweet

The soccer solution is to waive the offsides rule. You might actually get action and scoring for a change.

Man I thought the days of Ryen blowing Brady ended when Brady left the Pats, but NOPE. Yes he is one of the greatest to ever do it, but TODAY is a fringe top 7 QB. Brady can’t ever do wrong. It’s always someone else’s fault. So Mike Evans messed up on a hot route because Brady has 6 rings?

I know nothing matters anymore but I’m unsubscribing because of Michael Vick’s repeatedly featuring. He never apologized for torturing dogs. Peace.

I really enjoy the podcast. I have to skip the Mike Vick episode. I have no interest in anything he has to say. Hurts to see his name and the unimaginable pain he caused to numerous animals. Heartless.

Russillo is the best talking head in sports. He's got original takes, he offers insightful player analysis, he's not too reactionary, he's reasoned about drawing conclusions, etc. He's basically the opposite of most guys in the biz.
