I tried listening to the Dan Lebatard show for a few days and already giving up on it, pretty terrible. he seems to be trying too hard to be funny or something, didn't get a lot of interesting/smart observations either.

If you've been listening to it for years(just guessing bc it's Miami?), I'll give it more of a chance. SSS for me and I'd much rather listen to a national show than any local garbage.

It's different. If you want FOOTBALL FRIDAY, and game breakdowns, and interviews with coaches where they never say anything that isn't a cliche than its not for you. That is def the biggest complaint they get since they've taken over Colin's spot. Though I think it's the most listened to pod on the ESPN app. :beatsme:

Though I obvs hate Dan in sjw-mode.

FWIW, I hated LeBatard at first too. Seemed like way too many (attempts at) comedy bits and inside jokes.

But the show grew on me. And LeBatard is a great interviewer.

TY, yeah that's how I felt. also was feeling like it was kind of Miami-centric for a national show, but it's new and he'll probably tone that down.

Nah, they are unashamed of their Miami-centricity and they have been national for a while, just not in this time slot.

i like lebatard's show. very much hate when he decides to talk about race, even though i think it's probably a meta trolling of his audience because every time they do a race discussion, the next segment is reading twitter responses and making fun of them. Guess that's an easy way to fill 2 segments if you're short on content for the day. I LOVE Stugotz's weekend observations. Same joke every week and it still kills me every time.

Greeny got a new contract with ESPN for over $6.5 million a year. The Mike and Mike show has to be over soon, because they can't be paying him that much for that show.

speaking of mike & mike. Golic's son does the overnight show that precedes Mike & Mike. he is awful. truly awful. he does that Tyson thing where he uses big words to try to sound smart but they are the wrong big words. Constantly. I assume he has never been called out on this because his show is from 3 am to 6 am.
