    Sad Peter Drury & Jim Beglin are not doing the showdown at Bridge. Jon Champion is good, but he is not the same level Drury.

      A) If you’re in the US, you’re stuck with Arlo for the late game. And since we’re stuck with Arlo, I wish Jon Champion had been assigned the early game Sunday.

      B) Different horses for courses, but I’ll bet if W S T took a poll here, Jon Champion would swamp Peter Drury.

        Everyone at NBCSN is fully qualified. Instead of arguing about taste, which even the Romans knew was not resolvable by disputation, think of where we would be now if Fox Sports still had the Premier League… say, Gus Johnson on today’s game.
