Every sport is different. Team sports, Baseball, differs from individual sports, MMA. Every organization and every sport will differ in How things are handled. Sweeping arguments don’t make sense here. Keep your fckn marbles

Without the sheep audience the jokes make me cringe. Bob Saget had better material in AFV. On a sidenote, I would sooner snort a line of Covid 19 than watch a marble event.

The UFC have officially trademarked the name UF-SEA. Dana says thanks you sexy librarian. And BTW, marketing 101 says to never name a product something that your targeted demographic cannot understand. Names like Isle of Man fights man, or Jiu Jitsu Key , or even Octagon Island wouldn’t be obvious to the casual fan. Keep in mind, many of these same fans pay their hard earned money to watch WWE.

anyone else notice that John gets an abnormally high amount of boners for Adam Driver? Adam, even at his best, looks like a bridge troll, yet John continues to stroke his tiny european wand to him on a regular basis. Anyone else find that strange? JUST ASK HIM OUT, JOHN... JUST ASK HIM OUT AND LAY HIM DOWN BY THE FIRE!!!

Kids enjoyed the marble run episode. They said they wish you would do something on the SUMMER camps that are badly hit by Covid19 and cannot safely open in 2020. Long Lake Camp for the Arts in New York is particularly hit bad and I know many parents have turned ugly to them for their lack of ability to offer refunds at this time. That means they, and many other wonderful camp experiences, may not be around for summer 2021. The kids have "no summer" now - and because of covid they may not have one in 2021 either (meaning their camps are gone permanently).

11:01 As of today, 27th of May the UFC has filed 4 new trademark applications for "UFSEA".The filings indicate an intent to use the UFSEA trademark in connection with mixed martial arts events and a clothing brand.
These filings come on the heels of the UFC's filings back in April for 'FIGHT ISLAND.'

So, the hype clip says Marble League doesn't open for close to another month. In the meantime, I'll be filling my need for sports with Kusogrande.
Four gamers are handed a crappy video game none of them have played before and race to make the most progress in a hour. They are ranked by best attempt ("high water mark") and awarded points; as the rounds progress the gamers with the fewest points are eliminated.
The matches are filled with atrocious graphics, terrible controls, and on-the-fly reverse-engineering of buggy code (although the music is sometimes strangely impressive). It's e-sports but actually interesting because half the battle is figuring out what the game actually does.
P.S. I am not associated with Kusogrande in any way; it's just really fun to watch gamers suffer (they signed up for it!)

In 2011 America helped us Japanese in the name of the Operation Tomodachi(friends).
Even though we share a tragetic past, I know for the FACT that you American people are our best Tomodachis in the world.
Now that our country had triumphed over the corona virus, we'd LOVE to return the operation Tomodachi's favor.

When you play video or audio of that Fraud, I switch off. Good night.

(Maybe I'll try watching one of your videos again in the future.) Your deep dives, interesting and funny as they used to be, are not good enough to make them worth watching or listening to when doing so means having to hear Little Donny the Fraud say any words, besides "I hereby resign the presidency effective immediately."

I wouldn't mind hearing him say those words. And ONLY those words. And once would be plenty.

While I am aware of the US-centric nature of this show, the lack of coverage of football (actual football where you use feet not handegg) in this show hosted by a British guy is very surprising. Major football spans the UK, Spain, Italy, Germany, France, Netherlands, Belgium and many more not only at the European level of Champions League but also the top division and subsequent tiers, where many clubs could be non-existent by the end of the summer. This would also give this episode a chance to highlight sport swashing by human rights abusing middle eastern countries such as eminent purchase of Newcastle by journalist murdering Mohammed bin Salman and previous purchase of PSG and Man City. This episode of "Sports" was a missed opportunity. Far too many people are affected by whats happening in Football during this pandemic than by any sport in the US.
