It is jarring but I am sure we will get used to it. Complaining that they are pushing their one regular source of income is why sites are struggling. Ad revenue dependent models are suffering. I would rather they highlight paid content over "like us on facebook, please click our banner ads #doritos" crap.
You have been getting more than two or three pieces of content a week since Ryckert joined. Excluding premium podcasts, last week gave us spookin and 2 metal gear.. The week before, wow, mgs, jar time and upf.
They only commit to the friday show as they are not sure who is in, what events are on, when pubs visit to demo games, etc.. Alows them to be flexible.
You can enjoy the games without picking a team to support. My team is too shit to be in the premiership, so I just pick on a game to game basis - maybe they have a player I like or they are the underdog or they are playing scum like Man U :-P
