Hey! It’s our first episode of the year and it is ghetto as f*ck. Weeeeeee wouldn’t have it any other way. Trust me, if you like Rice Krispies (who doesn’t?), then I know you’ll appreciate the random snap, crackle, pops that occur, Tehol’s up-and-down noise-making, and the sound of my voice, which makes it seem we recorded this pod in a small empty closet. I cannot really confirm nor deny this, but I can say is that we covered a lot of topics from the offseason and went over our Razzball mock draft, with quite the crew assemblage. Zach, Jenn, Kevin, and Tehol all joined me during this amazing celebration of low-background static. And honestly, I can say it’ll get better from here as we’ve ordered new equipment and some editing software. We’re entering the big time folks. Or medium time. Small big-time? Yeah, let’s go with that one…Please, blog, may I have some more?
As we can afford during the football offseason (and eternal search for SEO hits), an entire podcast dedicated to Game of Thrones is definitely the hero we need, not the one we deserve. And now that the new GoT season is here, we can rest the hype-machine and finally talk about an actual episode. But with the special guest Grey Albright in tow, we just sorta-kinda talk about Canada, Drake, and riding segues (segways?) with Nick Capozzi. THEN we get to the season premier and go over all the plot points introduced (or recycled), have some meta-conversations of where the series is going from both the show-watcher and book-reader standpoint. Which was Tehol’s job. I’ve never read the books, so I have no idea if he did a good job, but if I know anything about Tehol, I’m sure it was… yeah… nevermind. Regardless, join Grey, myself and Tehol as we discuss the first episode: The Red Woman! (And there will be spoilers…)Please, blog, may I have some more?
Tehol and I are finally back to prep you on the ins and outs of the NFL Draft. To be fair, I’m not sure about what that means technically, like the NFL Draft is some sort of object that you can be inside and out… this whole thing seems entirely too meta at the moment, but them’s the way it goes. Or I’ve been drinking. OR BOTH! We do go over the big trade between the Rams and Titans, a bunch of fantasy prospects in the draft, and then I ramble for an hour about something. I think it was a Tehol story. Or it was about the Chargers. Who even knows any more?Please, blog, may I have some more?
Did you know winter is finally here? Well, I mean, it’s spring time, but for some reason, HBO decides to start airing a winter show on the cusp of summer, but whatevs. The world is not perfect. And come to think of it, I’m pretty sure there are only two seasons in Game of Thrones: Alaska and Siberia. That’s it. Two seasons. Regardless, I’m happy to present Razzball’s answer to the SEO gods, a GoT podcast that’ll be weekly once the season begins. Basically because the football season is still far away, which means we can do random clickbait in the mean time. We’ll also have Grey (mustache clickbait!) and “GoT name expert” and former Fantasy Football IDP contributor Kevin Kumpf stop by for this short series as much as possible (with Grey coming by to join us for the season premier), but for our podcast debut, Tehol and I go over the newest red band trailer that you can watch above (quite possibly NSFW), and discuss the possibility of a Clegenebowl, the level of awesome Davos has achieved, how to pronounce Melisandre, and when in the world will Daenerys ever get to Kings Landing… (the answer is quite possibly never.) Game of Thrones hasn’t started yet, but the hype is here. Join us!Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’re back! That’s right folks, it’s time to wipe the dust off the Razzball Football side with the first podcast of the year. I would have used an exclamation point there, but with the way I’m feeling, some restraint might be wise or you would probably recite this entire post as if it were yelling. WHICH I GUESS WOULDN’T BE THE WORST THING IN THE WORLD. Regardless, the great and mighty (his bedroom moniker) Tehol returned to his normal co-hosting duties (duties… also a bedroom moniker of his that you can ask him about) to discuss the happenings of NFL free agency, including the signing of Robert Griffen, Calvin Johnson and Peyton Manning’s retirements (and the fall out from these events) and other transactions that have taken place.
And for those of you who miss our Game of Thrones content, have no fear, we’ll be doing a separate Pod for the show this offseason, and our first episode will be out Thursday when we talk about the new red band trailer and what it all means… The meaning of life, maaaaan.
So stick around for the resurgence of Football Razzball, in audio form!Please, blog, may I have some more?
And so it begins. While this is the eleventh podcast of our “season”, this shall be known, henceforth, as the first podcast of the NFL season. You know it’s legit when I add in Old English vernacular. THOUEST THOU! Tehol and I briefly went over some news items like James Jones signing with Green Bay and Fred Jackson signing with Seattle. We then moved onto the first slate of games in Week 1, going over the fantasy implications and what to look for this Thursday, Sunday, and Monday. As an added twist, Tehol and I started a game of Pick ‘Em and you’re invited! At the end of the year, I’ll take note of all the games both of us pick on the pod along with your picks in the comment section. If you guys (and gals) end up beating both Tehol and myself, whichever listener has the highest total of correct calls, you’ll get a Razzball t-shirt of your choice, on me! So go ahead and list your Week 1 winners below in the comment section.
New to Daily Fantasy Football? I am too! I’m trying out this new free FanDuel’s contest, where half the league is guaranteed to win. If you want, you can join up with me! (Played FanDuel before? You can build a team for $5 for a chance of $100,000, part of a one million dollar prize pool!)Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’m still not sure why I called this pod the “pre-preseason” episode, but I’m sure it had something to do with the season fast approaching. MAYBE. Tehol and I went over the latest slate of presesason Week 3 games that happened during the weekend, more specifically about Randall Cobb and Tre Mason’s injuries, and the clusterf*ck that is the Washington quarterback situation. Also, we had a special guest, Matt from FanDuels, stop by and go over what we have in store this season for you guys daily fantasy wise. We then wrapped up the show going over Tehol‘s Disgrace and Delight rankings, always a treat. Mostly for Tehol… but a treat nontheless. Enjoy the show! (And don’t forget, if you want to take on Tehol or myself, we have leagues open in the RCL!)
Note: All of our rankings, projections, and values have been updated on Sunday and should be activated later today. They can be found here.Please, blog, may I have some more?
The world was not ready for yet another ACL casualty. I DREW THE LINE AT SHAUN SUISHAM. AND THAT LINE I DREW, THE ONE AT SHAUN SUISHAM? IT WAS CROSSED PEOPLE. Quite frankly my dear friends, that line has now been crossed ten-fold. More like a billion-fold actually. In today’s podcast, Tehol and yours truly go over some of the precarious situations that the Packers and Panthers now find themselves in with both their star receivers (Jordy Nelson and Kelvin Benjamin) done for the year. What happens to Davante Adams and David Funchess you might ask? Well, don’t worry, because we answer long and we answer hard. Whatever that means. We also go over other news around the league and talk a bit of Draft Strategy to get you ready for your upcoming drafts, which I’m sure are all in the Razzball Commenter Leagues. Right? RIGHT? Right. I mean, it’s a free league and you could win some pretty cool prizes… just saying.
Note: Because of the Jordypocalypse, all of our rankings, projections, and values have been updated and can be found here.Please, blog, may I have some more?
After a week off, Tehol and I are back, and we’re bringing our IDP guru with us. Kevin stops by to hang out the entire Pod and talk, you guessed it! IDP stuff. Mainly his rankings, but we delve a bit into the strategy of the format as well. Along with that, we go over the recent injury status of Arian Foster, Tom Brady’s suspension being upheld, and how Jay Cutler is faring with his new offensive coordinator, Adam Gase. As an added bonus, I create the word “flatuate” when I think I meant “fellatiate”. So there’s that, I guess. Regardless, enjoy the show!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Tehol finally came back from his vacation in
Cleveland Canada, and was ready to pick apart my rankings. Along with discussing all the running backs and receivers and their rankings, Tehol and I also touched on the situation in Minnesota and pondered about Victor Cruz and last season’s injury. There was also five minutes where we talked about Donald Brown that I’d like back. And as is usual, we went over the latest episode of True Detective (1:22:00), which is really starting to blow up. In a good way. Things can blow up in good ways… Not really, but you get what I’m saying. At the very least, I think we all agree with Ani. (Sorta NSFW… maybe. It’s on the boarders.) As a bonus, we also talk a little bit about the new Suicide Squad and Dawn of Justice trailers. Enjoy!
