Let’s face it - Shek’s shtick gets old quick. It’s the same old takes time and again without any hint of something fresh or original. They are misinformed and or unfunny. Seriously, you can only listen to his position on MJ v Lebron (James is clearly superior because everyone guarding Jordan had day jobs and was under 6 feet tall), quarterbacks (Rodgers, Big Ben, Bradshaw and Mallet are top 4 all time) and fruit (loves the honey crisp and hates pomegranates) so many times before tuning out. Most damning is his proactive condemnation of anyone who is decried as “holier than thou” prior to going off on some tired, omniscient take on politics, society or the arts.
I realize that the show is supposed to be funny with football as the vehicle to deliver the humor but it’s not funny and the football knowledge is seriously lacking. The only reason I listen to show on occasion is the incredibly strong supporting cast of Money, Hank and Emma. I would give Dave some credit for assembling this fine cast but you also have to consider the serious missteps with MJD, Ike, Cynthia Freuland and Eddie Spaghetti, all of whom are unlistenable.
