Message Board Wars – Episode 1

The first episode of ‘Message Board Wars‘ can be heard here.

The host is Lance Rinker, and the analysts are Rob Shields, and Mike Weber.

The format of this show is an extension of classic sports bar debates. Content covered will range from local sports, to National level discussions. Compared to our other shows, the intent is a ‘lighter’ show which still provides good analysis. The debates won’t always be between Rob and Mike, but will be them providing their opinions on multiple issues across the sports world. When they debate, it will be real. When they agree, they will say so.

This first show (and possibly next as well) will be without guests as Lance, Rob, and Mike grow comfortable with working together. In short-order, they will get to the point where they are regularly inviting BSL posters to join them. Those invited guests will expand on the posting they’ve provided to the board, and give thoughts on what is on their minds.

You can discuss the show here.
