2018-09-21 16:04
redeye is honestly the best in the business since richard lewis retired, at both desk and stage hosting. dunno how potter will do i think its too soon to judge shes been a top female "pro" for a long time im sure she can do just as well as anyone else in terms of analysis since they never really say anything useful anyways.
2018-09-21 16:08
I wanted go agree with you but stopped reading at since Richard Lewis
2018-09-21 16:43
he was the best in the business.

the old desks with richard lewis and thorin take a shit all over these new desks where every time i actually bother to unmute during the desk segment they all make me feel like ive heard their exact words 100 times before.
2018-09-21 17:14
Yea haHAA funny banter with 0 knowledge of the game, you know what analysts are supposed to do right
2018-09-21 17:17
do u actually think the bullshit few minute long segments where machine keeps asking the same stupid questions every time are actual analysis? please, i could do that and ive never even been global.
2018-09-21 17:26
RL and Thorin know more about cs than you and I put together lol
2018-09-21 23:25
