Spencer was always the one guy in that crew who was definitely going to be fine without SBN, but that show sounds great and I'm glad Richard is going with him.

Absolutely. Spencer's a great writer and fun enough on air, but Richard has a *talent* for this stuff and could end up bigger than any of them. Listening to him on PAPN week after week, the man is clearly putting in the work to really understand football and is also a very engaging 'personality'. He'll hopefully go far.

Charles Barkley losing a bunch of money at least twice on the Atlanta Falcons seems extremely Charles Barkley

And I am taken to a place
Where your crystal minds and magenta feelings
Take up shelter in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chica cherry cola

Somewhat related - I joined their Moon Patrol discord and itís worth the $3 a month. During Saturdayís itís way better for focusing on the football hollariní than Twitter is.

It's an extra one for the dumb MEGACAST that we apparently need for random rear end regular season games but yeah it seems especially dumb to not have it farther back when it's a completely empty stadium

I think carving out Tuesday night as a thing is a good call, similar to what they've done with the NBA on Thursdays--you can always count on it being there. They tried it with Sunday afternoon but that's a tough ratings draw in the summer, this seems like a better idea.

While we're at it we as a society need to bring back the ESPN National Hockey Night theme song and the old Fox baseball theme. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8PReim0Axt4

As part of that extension in the spring they just cut my market (among others) out of the broadcast region for my regional SN.

I cannot believe I'm back to being a cable subscriber thanks to this YouTube TV bullshit. Had to switch when they dropped YES.

PS Vue was very good and not too expensive so naturally it had to die.

Probably going to get my parents to switch to that then. I got them to drop cable and to go YTTV last year but this season, even when they did have the fox channels every single indians game is blacked out and they're furious.

The only thing I used the RSNs for was to watch Pistons games, which only works because for some reason YouTube TV thinks Iím at my sisterís house when I watch it on the PS4 or smart tv. Canít say Iím crushed to be unable to watch another season of purgatory basketball.

Paid, illegal streams are really the best market solution. When NBA LP lets me watch my local team I'll pay them, until then I'm paying the dude who is charging 1/3 the price with a superior UX that gets me everything.
