Football is back, so naturally, that’s what we talked about in Episode 5 of the Razzball Football Podcast. Tehol and Zach joined me with special guest Ramona from SportsGalPal. And, as the title denotes, we did that with PRODUCTION VALUE. That was the theme of the night, because we had Tehol talking on the phone while driving, which is totally something we don’t condone. Zach eating his mic was a nice issue to have. And I left music on here and there because what do I know about closing windows and pressing buttons on my mouse? Hint? I. Don’t. Know. Much. Despite all this, we do get to every Week 1 matchup with some thoughts, pontifications some would say (probably just me), and predictions for you to consume. Hopefully with an alcoholic beverage. Or some tacos. I don’t know, spice up your experience man. SPICE IT UP. (Is that a saying?) Whatever, Episode 5 is after the jump!

After a week off (not by choice), we’re back at it with our fourth episode of the season. And when I mentioned a week off, it wasn’t like we were all on a tropical island drinking Mai Tais (well, Tehol might have been). Nope, we recorded what was probably one of the best Podcast ever… Zach, Jen, Kevin, Tehol, and yours truly was doing our best impression of Dylan and spitting hot fire. But alas, technology railed against us in our time of need and all was lost. But do not fret, do not fear, Tehol and I are back and better than ever, delving into the unknown knowns (LOL, thanks Rumsfeld) of Tony Romo’s injury-palooza, Teddy Bridgewater’s 21 leg explosions, Colin Kaepernicks (valiant?) stand against the man, and our season preview of what teams finish where and how the NFL playoffs will shape and our Super Bowl winners. A betting man would expect us to pick the Seahawks and Chargers, so I guess this is my way of saying you should become a betting man (or woman). But still, it should be at least entertaining to see how much verbal calculus it takes us to get there… right? RIGHT? Right!

Anyhow, here’s Episode 5 4 :( of the Razzball Football Podcast!

Special Note: Next week, we’ll have our full panel going over the latest NFL news and the first week slate of games, including special guest Ramona Rice from our friends at Sports Gal Pal!

Now, if you’ve been a reader here at the football side of Razz, you know that I try to stay away from the title of “expert” whenever possible, except in reference to watching porn (the single life!), as I’m just a dude that likes writing about football… that’s it. But whenever this nomenclature comes up, you have that one guy (or girl… please?) explaining that we are not experts and blah-blah-yadda-yadda, ef the establishment! In which case, I kinda agree, but can’t we just accept that this is the title of the league and I’m not really going to take the time to say: 10-team league full of seasoned-writers that decided to get together to form a league so we can see who reigns supreme? That’s right, I’m just going to put it in the lede to take up space until we get to the Podcast link…

Anyhow, like the title denotes, this Podcast (on the Blogtalkradio Network) was recorded during our “EXPERT, MUTHAF*CKER” draft, and among the teams, you’ll find those “seasoned” fantasy vets such as ESPN’s former Producer Pod Vader, Fantasy InsidersJoel Henard, SportsGalPal‘s Ramona Rice, Her Fantasy Football’s Brandon Marianne LeeMatt Chatham from Football by FootballWally Spurlin from Fantasy Football Sharks, D-Rex (yes, that’s his name, no, he’s not a dinosaur, unfortunately) from PyromaniacDaily Fantasy Sports Rankings‘ Doug Norrie, Pro Football Weekly‘s John Sahly, and Jay from Razzball (hey, that’s me!)

I’ll have my own analysis of the draft in a few short days, but in the meantime, enjoy the show!

In a “low-energy cast”, Tehol and I return to the old school style of doing things. In that, I mean we do it Double Dragon style. For those of you who remember Nintendo, you know what’s up. For those of you who don’t, well then, just assume it’s sexual innuendo and move on. Regardless, because it was a small news week and the big “draft” Podcasts (a two-part series hopefully) won’t be created (in all it’s majesty) and all it’s parentheses until next week, we stuck to some NFL topics that are somewhat fantasy relevant… like RG-III and Ryan Fitzpatrick. Haha, fantasy relevant…

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…

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…)

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?

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!

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!

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!)
