    I started watching MN United vs Sporting Kansas. The coverage started with Jon Champion & Taylor Twellman in the studio telling viewers ”this is the MLS is back pregame show” After 3 minutes they cut to a commercial, then the game started. How can a pre game show be only 3 minutes? The adidas logo in the center circle, along with the ugly score bug & the big ticker at the bottom of the screen makes it unwatchable. I turned it off. How can anyone watch this?

    Nick was on point with the ‘crack dealer’ analogy with regard to how NBC uses the EPL. Got everyone addicted with that Extra Time package, then downhill from there

      Hi Greg, sorry about that. Rusty, my dog, was outside my home studio barking at the neighbors having their AT&T fiber installed.

    So Gold is gone next year? Will Peacock show the classic games like Gold did?

    Peacock is actually cheaper than Gold, actually (even if you don’t get it free through Comcast).
