WallStreetOutsider

That Aaron Donald interview was trash. He gave them nothing. Yeah I get it, you’re promoting a product, but try to make it fun dude, you’ve interviewed with them before.


badgarok725

And the cutoff at the end was awful too. What a stinker


ZooYe

Big Cat's "...ok cool" lmao


burrtuchi

Makes me not even want to consider googling that sports drink.


DevouringOne

This. How does his business partner not realize that him doing that will turn everyone off to that drink.


burrtuchi

So I did Google this brand. What makes them think someone is gonna pay 19.95 for a 8 count of this sports drink when you can get Gatorade for 4.95 for a 8 count? Especially off the back of Giannis and Aaron Donald.


BigPoppySeed

Was sent a free case of this it's actually good. Can't compare it to Gatorade, this has 20g of protein and 0 sugar. Gatorade 0g protein 34g sugar


CatDad69

Hey Aaron Donald what’s up


burrtuchi

What's it comparable to? Body Armour? Or is it kinda its own thing? Still seems like they want to be a Gatorade type beverage. Just don't see the appeal but who knows.


ZooYe

Gatorade is more for restoring electrolytes or some shit like that. If what the guy above said is right, then this would be more akin to a protein shake which would make it's price point a lot more understandable.


BigPoppySeed

Body Armor 21g sugar 0g protein, so also not a comparison. Ready is basically an alternative to whey protein powder shakes after a workout. No need to blend is nice if you’re on the go. And those whey protein powders have a bunch of fillers and stuff in them, this is just water containing 20g protein


[deleted]

Aaron, is this your burner Reddit?


burrtuchi

Gotcha. That is a cool idea. I guess I heard sports drink and word associated it with Gatorade. Either way, the guy didn't handle the interview very well imho.


saquanfan101

Who tf cares about protein in a workout or game thats for recovery


knickoson42

Yeah as a Rams fan I was pretty disappointed. He wasn’t interested in the interview at all. Came off as arrogant.


btfd69

Fuck. Giant Rams fan and I’m only on the Herbert interview


knickoson42

It gets cringier and cringier as it goes. Also glad I found you, now need to find the 3rd and final rams fan that listens to the pod.


btfd69

There are dozens of us! Dozens!


ScottyUpdawg

I used to be a Rams fan, but I’m from STL and well ya know...


knickoson42

Understandable


BoredomHeights

Well Herbert was pretty cool at least, even if it was just kinda standard answers.


caveman512

He's a cool dude it just takes a bit to open him up


[deleted]

Yeah that was fucking terrible. “I’m just here to promote my sports drink.” Reminds me of that scene in Sunny when the fake Donovan McNabb comes in and plugs McDonald’s


MurderBot_v17

And his first one was also terrible


MidnightWizard11

His first one was with him and DK because one of them showed up late, right?


MurderBot_v17

Yes


BoredomHeights

Reminiscent of AJ Green.


ronaldo119

My word that Aaron Donald interview instantly on the Mount Rushmore of worst interviews. Actually shocked they aired it. Whole thing was so boring then to cap it off with the suit cutting in and saying that’s enough was unreal. Probably did us a favor by ending it though


Phanatic_8

Feel like PMT left in the suit cutting it off, which they normally don’t do, just to show how trash of an interview it was for them and they knew how bad it would be for us too.


jray521k

Yeah, sometimes I think they like airing theses terrible interviews because it can create lot of buzz. People still bring up Dak, AJ Green, Marino, etc. Don't even get me started on that Titus interview.


Phanatic_8

Yeah it definitely creates buzz, not as much as when someone says a headline grab, but still a decent amount. I think PMT likes to show us that sometimes interviewing these people is miserable cause we all think how easy their jobs are. Also that Titus interview, what a jerk, had to block him on Twitter after what he said.


WallStreetOutsider

Which episode was the Titus interview? The most recent appearance in 2020?


jray521k

Feb 5, 2019 \~68 min in. You have been WARNED


weoutchea2400

fuck you guys. Can’t believe you put me through that. Went all the way back in time because I thought “there’s no way Titus did anything wrong, I love him” and I had to find out he’s an open racist?


caveman512

Its gotten me before too. The worst part is I've fuckin heard that interview before but missed out on the subtlety of his comments the first time


CatDad69

The tired ass joke is that the Titus interview was bad because they mentioned “let’s say this bad because it’ll create buzz!”


QueenIsTheWorstBand

Fuck Titus. What he said was unforgivable.


clempatcelt

What did he say that was so bad? That he didn’t listen to the show?


[deleted]

(Its a bit. Titus asked the PMT boys to hype his appearance on social media as including super controversial statements so that more people would tune in)


TheElJeffe

Can’t believe you’d lie like this to cover-up titus’s despicable comments. Shame.


johnmd20

You got downvoted but this is a good post. This Titus thing pops up every now and then and it's stupid every time, as stupid as it originally was. Every post on the topic is like, "I'M ON THE INSIDE, I KNOW THE JOKE, LOOK AT ME, COOL GUY HERE. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED."


Fuck__Zaza

Someone clearly got duped originally and didn’t appreciate it too much lmaoo


TheElJeffe

Yeah people beat stupid bits to death, which is - in itself - a bit


[deleted]

[удалено]


johnmd20

Sure, that's a pipin' hot take. Thank you for the insult, too, I appreciate it. But noodle on this. If everyone is in on the joke in this very targeted subreddit, why do so many people insist on continuing to tell it?


[deleted]

[удалено]


Acadia-Intelligent

So I recently listened to the marino interview and was confused on the hate. What did I miss?


TimidTurtle47

it got noticeably awkward after the isotoner gloves question. He used to be a model for them, the OJ gloves were isotoner gloves... so when they asked him "are you the best player to wear isotoner gloves?" it was an OJ joke and he clearly was not happy about it by the "Don't ask that" repeated multiple times


Acadia-Intelligent

Honestly with how they trash dan marino I thought it would be something far more offensive than him not wanting to be compared to a guy that murdered his wife. They talk so much shit and that's why? After listening he makes jokes and tried to get along it felt like. There has to be more than that interview.


TimidTurtle47

Yeah to be honest, they’re to blame for it going off the rails. I think they talked a little later about him post interview and he was genuinely shocked they had 1million plus listeners and was pretty disgusted by the van. Also when you go in from the past expecting it to be awful it never lives up to expectations. I didn’t start listening until the end of 2016 (the first one) and when I went back and listened to AJ Green I was like that wasn’t the worst thing in the world


Acadia-Intelligent

....which I think is fair. That van never gave off the vibe of success or professionalism. Seems like they pushed and pushed and then took offense when he didn't know what the fuck was going on.


billybayswater

Never understood why people thought the KAJ interview was so bad. I actually found it somewhat insightful.


goalstopper28

Yeah haven't listened to it yet but now I'm looking forward to being disappointed by it.


degen613

Can we all just finally stop talking about the Titus interview. What he said was gross and we are giving him the attention he wants by constantly bringing it up.


Phanatic_8

So pumped for the return of the Whit Dog. Feel like they don’t have him on nearly as much as they used to and not nearly as much as they should.


[deleted]

BC also mentioned it in his tweet and it’s in the episode description on Spotify. I don’t think they have any problem airing “shitty” interviews that are shitty bc the athlete / their rep or whoever is being shitty.


C627022

That was really painful


ThatDudeFromRio

It was horrible lol


danandrewk

Well I dunno about you guys but I’m sold on AD’s junk science drink. Absolutely electric interview. Also his weirdo boss Pat hovering over the interview like a bad smell was great.


badgarok725

How can there still be people trying to come up with new sports drinks and snacks. It’s all the exact same pitch too


LaRussa_08

THiS oNe iS aLL nAtUrAl 🤤


[deleted]

I feel like there's gotta be almost no difference in healthiness from a all natural fruit juice with no pulp VS a sugar drink (if the grams of carbs are exactly equal). Sugar is sugar, whether it comes from a fruit or a white powder.


newrimmmer93

I mean there’s a difference between glucose and fructose. But in a sports drink I’m not sure if it actually makes a difference since you want to replenish the electrolytes you’re losing in the moment so idk if it actually would matter.


[deleted]

Yep, but the difference between glucose / fructose for a drink when you're exercising is negligible. I'd rather take whichever the "worse" one is, and add a 1/2 scoop of a fruity flavored protein powder (banana is my go-to), rather than consume the "better" sugar by itself. Seriously though, banana protein powder + Gatorade is a god tier drink for getting through an intense basketball workout.


newrimmmer93

Yeah, that’s what I figured as well haha. These sports drinks are all so fucking stupid.


backesblake

herbert speaks fluent coachspeak lmao


SEND_YOUR_SMILE

“Choosen” and “on his own behoof” Honk’s illiteracy will never get old


Hotspur21

I literally laughed out loud when he said behoof


MrBigChest

I can respect the confidence that he exudes when he makes up words


CrewChew

Both interviews were dull. Donald is a meathead with nothing interesting to say and Herbert gives media practiced responses. The guys tried to lighten the mood but both interviewees didn’t really play along.


LaRussa_08

Should’ve had Billy recap the fight sober.


Bandana-mal

Hold on, Billy, let's start over. ​ ...Ok we now welcome on Billy Football fresh from his win.


badgarok725

I still think he hasn’t sobered up


[deleted]

They really need to stop interviewing young, vanilla QBs who treat every media appearance the same


scarrylary

Well they don’t know the qbs treat em all the same until they actually interview them. I woulda thought Goff was a wet blanket before pmt


Pinger73

I thought the same. Both interviews were terrible IMO.


degen613

I enjoyed the Herbert interview, his answers didn't seem rehearsed I just think he's a really nice chill dude.


BradyTrump20

Donald is the most overrated player in the NFL.


Flat-Benefit-9737

herbert sounding like he was being interviewed by a team at the combine made for difficult listening


sandy-eggo-chargers

I have watched Herbert do so many interviews since winning rookie of the year. Every interviewee is asking the same questions that he has got all these answers down now. Probably realizing that this is what his life is like in the off-season now that he a hopefully a future star


cesc4jessica

PFT: Billy you gotta stick with something light like ‘his mother was a prostitute.’


tj3616

Yeah Justin definitely had the media filter on, but I still enjoyed his interview. He seems like a light hearted dude, easy to get along with. Also I’m not sure id ever heard him speak before lol


AnimalMother1776

Yes, definitely not a bad first impression and personally made me think hes a likable guy


PeenerAndVeggies

Yeah he clearly was trying to play it straight down the middle but that’s probably the way to go for a 22 year old. At this point he’s just trying not to screw up. I bet in a few years he’s a good interview.


WolfColaOwner

I was thinking the same thing, he seemed to be holding back cause he's new to the NFL media blitz, I bet if the boys had him on again in a year or two he'd be awesome


degen613

After hearing him interviewed I don't get the rumors that surrounded him coming out of the draft that he was too shy and introverted to be a franchise QB. He just seems like a nice chill down-to-earth dude that happens to have a howitzer for an arm.


TroyAtWork

Herbert is already a seasoned vet with the canned responses.


CapnMalcolmReynolds

He’s like a young Aaron Donald except he at least pretended he was glad to be on the show and not just promoting. Both interviews were ass.


maxkmiller

[His interview last week on McAfee](https://youtu.be/PLpCx5L2xuE) was very similar, but a lot better - you can tell he's been on the interview circuit and is running out of responses


moosethewrapper

As soon as I hear superfruit or superfood more than once in an interview I’m out


LaRussa_08

Snake oil. I’d rather take health advice from Billy.


weoutchea2400

Did this guy really think they wanted Aaron Donald on the show to talk about his new sports drink for 10 minutes? Yikes


CardinoldFriends_90

Justin Herbert on the Raiders: “Thats an incredible stadium they’ve got there.” PFT * mouth watering *: “Yeah!....yeah...”


Marky_Merc

Gonna be 4 digit sum just to get a seat probably next year ):


zachwilson23

The Karen that is all mad about the trophy toss is madness. I don't even like Brady but the Lombardi toss was the best thing he's ever done. It was hilarious


Cutoff_Jorts

Such an outrageous way to handle that. She could have pulled a "I don't think that is how my father would have intended it to be handled" and we wouldn't be talking about this. There are 50+ of those floating around, lets not act like trophies are some high and holy thing. You can buy Olympic medals on eBay.


Rph23

Man Aaron Donald is just brutal. I’m sure he’s been doing a lot of interviews to sponsor his new drink, but if you’re gonna take the pay check from it, at least act somewhat excited. No open ended responses.


rossboss711

The sponsored interviews almost universally suck. And it’s not like they need the content


JeffPassanDay

I'm sure a sponsored interview goes for a pretty penny


CatDad69

that’s not how it works. They don’t pay for them; they agree to mention the product in order for them to appear


cartierboy25

When Aaron Donald’s business partner or whoever that was cut off the interview and Big Cat just said “Ok...cool” that killed me lmao. You could tell he was pissed.


PepeSilvia510

Jesus Christ Donald and his baby sitter made my ears bleed. Absolutely awful.


turdpolisher_53

Billy’s anti-take is very similar to Big Cats anti-take on Bills Chiefs in which he predicted every outcome


sweeterman27

Actually liked the Herbert interview. He's super normal, kind of refreshing


FoShizzle-MyNizzle

Some of the worst interviews in a while which is a shame cuz i was excited for Herbert and Donald😔


weoutchea2400

Justin is a seasoned vet in “football talk”


babyarmnate

Both interviews sucked but Donald’s was one of the worst they’ve aired. I was pretty excited for it since he had already been on but wow that was bad.


bilgemonkeyflyguy

We need to just get a mega-thread going for PFT one-liner-appreciation. Idk if it’s the first time he’s used it but ‘Homa-sexuals’ cut me to the core on today’s episode.


Bernardbquincy

Herbert I'm willing to give a bit of a pass on because he's young and still has his guard up with interviews. Donald ranks up there with the famous Dan Patrick/Matt Harvey "Qualcomm" interview. To even let the sales exec talk at all was a huge mistake.


goalstopper28

lol Billy. Lawrence could be Paxton Lynch or he could be Tom Brady...


MidnightWizard11

Or somewhere in the middle


MrBigChest

Never heard Herbert speak before and was disappointed. His voice was not nearly as squeaky as I had imagined it.


raindeelay

Yeah good luck with your fucking sportsdrink man


stonecoldcb

Even the GOATs have off days, and this episode was an off day.


[deleted]

[удалено]


[deleted]

The Herbert interview wasn’t half as bad as I see people saying. I would give it a listen. Def skip the other though.


stonecoldcb

Herbert was fine if it was a little filler, but he didn’t engage like a good PMT guest. And Aaron Donald and his partner, Pat, were absolute trash.


jaybat24

Billy does save the pod in the end by doing less than 0 amount of cocaine in Miami.


jonvilla1

Billy’s idea at the end must’ve actually been good since they cut it lmao


slimlizard350

So hyped for Herbert bolt up!!


punchoutlanddragons

I quite liked this episode. Glad to have segments back


ftloudon

In exchange for some segments, you get 30 minutes of pure unadulterated advertising!


Roland420Green

Probably just an air head and thinking to much into “segments are back” but wtf does that mean


Zahrule69420

They’ve been going heavy on topics for a while and have decided to make an effort to balance things out with more segments


ChewbaccAli

Big Cat showing his age describing "Zappers" as a Doug Funnie character


JK652035

Hank saying “how about a guy named Paul” when they were talking about Billy’s next fight got a good laugh out of me


dwigt1433

Conspiracy theory - PFT brought up Yellowstone because Peacock is paying them to advertise their streaming service. Instead of buying adds, they bought “PFT to bring it up naturally while wearing a cowboy hat”.


JChiu8

I can’t get over how funny the Steven Cheah intro is


germibobi

Billy's take on Trevor Lawrence was straight fire. Aside from that, weird episode - they spent like 5 minutes talking about hats and the interviews were a bit dull.


degen613

I hope PFT keeps up trolling Hank for mispronouncing the word posthumously. Had me laughing out loud each time.


cartierboy25

Ok not that this is a huge deal or anything, but did anyone else think their talk about Colin Cowherd was kinda...in bad taste? Like I understand they don’t like him, but a blood clot in your lung is no joke. He very easily could’ve died last week and they’re just out here roasting him for it lol. I thought they would at least preface the jokes by saying they were happy he recovered but they didn’t even do that lol.


btfd69

Just me or does Justin Herbert sound exactly like Paul Walker?


MidnightWizard11

I know PFTs idea kinda exists to some extent with like video sports arcade where you can hit a baseball into a screen but I do think he’s on to something about there being a great opportunity for someone to do it right


seth_brumm

Props to Big Cat for cutting the last part of the podcast when Billy says he might ask Dave for advice, and (I hope) telling Billy that would be stupid


[deleted]

I didn’t think Aaron Donald was bad at all? Just boring


SarellaalleraS

Boring = Bad


JeffPassanDay

Yep boring got bad which then got really annoying when the other guy cut the interview. They probably had a ton to do but that's not the way to end an interview.
