We’re going solo! With Tehol on vacation to a place where there’s no internet (SHOOOOOOOOOOOOORE), I had to go solo on the Pod this week. Where are you traveling where that has no internet Tehol? It’s 2015… So Cleveland. You’re in Cleveland. Got it. Despite not having my trusted yet always sleepy compatriot, I went ahead and reviewed the Razzball Quarterback Rankings, and then talked the newest episode of True Detective (Down Will Come), where proverbial sh*t hit the proverbial fan. There’s totally a proverb about that. (Spoilers starting at the 33:05 mark.) Regardless, enjoy Cleveland Tehol! I heard that they have a great football team there…Please, blog, may I have some more?
Tehol and I are back again with another Podcast, as we went over my rankings of Tight Ends, Kickers, and Defense & Special Teams. If you wanted a teaser, my tight end is ranked first, in all things. If you know what I mean. Oh, you do. YOU DO. We also talked a little bit about the current news in the NFL, which is basically Antonio Gates being suspended for four games. How does that affect his ranking? Well, we answered that, and then devolved into our, what is now traditional, miscellaneous part (56:05) of the cast, and since there’s no Game of Thrones to talk about, we dive head first into the first three episodes of True Detective, promptly hitting concrete. We seriously have no idea what the ef is going on in this show… I mean, I do, and I tried to explain it, but then my computer exploded. But don’t worry, we found a little time to talk some Game of Thrones… FOR THE WATCH.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, we did it! That’s right, a Game of Thrones only podcast. Obviously, we won’t be turning into a Game of Thrones website (though, this might actually be a good idea the more I think about it), but with the lack of any relevant football news, Tehol and I figured, why not? Especially with the finale airing this past Sunday, it seemed time. We were joined by Kevin, your IDP specialist and we went over the few episodes we hadn’t talked about yet, and then the big finale. Enjoy it, as we’ll have to wait like 8,000 days until the next season starts, and I’m just talking about football…Please, blog, may I have some more?
Tehol and I had a special guest on the show, none other than the Razzball IDP Strategist (it’s all capitalized because it’s a real title) Kevin Kumpf. He joined us to talk about IDP strategy and why you, the readers (and listeners) should try the format if you haven’t already. We also go over Tom Brady’s current value, and if Carlos Hyde and Teddy Bridgewater are considered underrated players at the moment. Then comes our usual Game of Thrones discussion (38:22) where we talk about the last two aired episodes (Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken and The Gift), and try to figure out what happens next, especially to father of year, Stannis Baratheon. Then comes our discussion on Mad Max: Fury Road (1:30:45), probably the best action movie I’ve seen in the past 10 years, if not more. I also say the phrase “sexual maneuvers” twice on the show, so if that doesn’t sell it, nothing else will…Please, blog, may I have some more?
As the title spoils, Tehol and I go over the happenings of the 2015 NFL Draft. We also go over some of the news coming out on Tom Brady (or as I call him, Dom Brady) along with how viable LeSean McCoy is as a racial expert. On top of that, we have our (which seems will be a recurring feature while the series is on-going) Game of Thrones review. If you like Fantasy Football or if you like Game of Thrones, you’ll be 50% happy. If you like both, oh man, do we have the perfect show for you, and you will certainly feel 100% happy. That’s just basic math right there folks. If you like neither, then I actually have no idea why you’re here…Please, blog, may I have some more?
As you may have figured out by now, Nick is still on vacation, which has now probably been upgraded to a missing person’s report, but despite his one-year (?) sabbatical/kidnapping thingamajig, we still are here to bring you the most, well, vibrant auditory experience that we can. This is our first podcast of the 2015 Season, and Tehol and I are talking the NFL Draft, some random news and notes, along with some thoughts on Game of Thrones, the new Star Wars and Batman v. Superman trailers, and Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey sucking up the environment. Which they should be doing at all times. So here it is, your one stop destination to get you ready for the NFL Draft and life in general. (I may be fibbing on the last one.)Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Razzball Podcast is back! It’s great to be back in the DraftKings studio after sitting out last week, but hey it was the Panthers bye so I took a bye too. Although to be fair, the Panthers took another bye this week and I didn’t! I’m the consummate professional! Nick I and go over the NFC notes and what it means for your fantasy team, along with a DraftKings look-in and the RCL top scorer through Sunday. JayWrong then dives into the AFC quick-hitters while Sky gives us the waiver-wire guys to nab. Murph was going to call in the carnage report, but with that last shot of rum, he had to add himself to the report! Good luck to everyone tonight if your game is hinging on Monday Night Football (looking at you Julio Jones) and good luck in week 5!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Oh man, how one single week can change everything! After looking like a team that was toast in another heartbreaking loss, my Carolina Panthers went beast mode on the Giants in the biggest shutout smack down in our team’s history. He Hate Me! So much fun. And with that shot of adrenaline, the entire Razzball Podcast family was healthy and ready for action this week, with Nick and I breaking down action in the NFC and DraftKings, Jaywrong and Nick going over what the H happened to Jay’s Chargers and the rest of the AFC, Murph bringing us the carnage report on this week’s injuries, and Sky telling you who to nab off the wire. Good luck to everyone tonight if your game is hinging on Monday Night Football and good luck in week 4!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well, it was about as bad a week 2 as it could get. Desperately needing some offense from anyone besides Marshawn Lynch, the 49ers/Seahawks game turned out to be a dud and my terrible Panthers found yet another way to lose. Lucky for me, David Wilson was awful yet again, finally putting the nail in the coffin for Nick’s hot tub. In a great twist of irony, the NY David Wilson’s face the horrible Panthers in week 3 and I actually think he’s an upside flex play. It’s over with now. Fin. Nick and I then go over all of week 2’s final scores and break down our thoughts, I recap the RCL top scorer through Sunday, and Sky and Murph bring us some waiver pickups and the carnage report. Good luck to everyone tonight if your game is hinging on Monday Night Football and good luck in week 3!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Due to “technical difficulties,” the DraftKings Razzball Studio was unable to support having me on the show this week. We all know that Nick was screening my calls. He just couldn’t take the reaming he was going to get about David Wilson. I was frothing at the mouth for this podcast like the end of Old Yeller. If only there was someone in the fantasy community that has been anti-Wilson since he was drafted! The David Wilson hot tub gonna be lonely tonight! All I have to say is none of my teams got that nice little negative 2.10 and Nick is still gonna get it next week. I mean, the phone system being down then Nick gets to make a one-sentence joke at me to get out of it? Really?! REALLY?! Luckily our resident West Coasters – Editor-In-Chief Sky and Awesome-In-Chief Murph – were able to record their segments on Waiver Wire moves and injuries. Since I wasn’t able to get connected, as promised an RCL shout out to the top-scoring team through Sunday to Milton’s Street Team in Guru’s Razzbro League putting up 200.78 points led by Colin Kaepernick and Anquan Boldin. Special shout out to the #2 scoring team Will and the Pirates – my mole in the Nick the Podcast Host League! I wanted a good friend in that league to be sure Nick’s record stays lower than the Jaguars. They put up 199.38 led by Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson; should be a tough team. Go Pirates! I’ll have a full article recapping everything RCL coming out tomorrow with the official high-scoring week 1 winner and a look into each league’s early front-runners.Please, blog, may I have some more?
