Man, I tried after Chris and Ryan left
Donnie, to quote Micah, “you are more than your productivity.” But I can’t listen anymore if episodes are going to be like the latest one, “Ten Burning Questions...” I like Donnie’s personality, but with him running the podcast you’ve left behind any kind of structure to hold things together and give purpose to the banter. With the XG god’s exit y’all lost any tether to analyzing soccer from a data perspective, and the show has slipped into who’s the better player and completely boring and useless predictions of the future, and too many tangents into soccer Instagram and fashion. I don’t mind the tangents, but y’all need to get back to the core of the podcast. Talk about the games, include stats and analysis (surely someone else other than Ryan is capable, too), include a diverse set of emotional reactions to the games, and leave the annoying punditry to the annoying cable pundits. Hopefully this comes off as constructive feedback. Wish y’all the best.
