Great Show

This is show is super insightful into the minds of the organizations and their front offices. After reading Lombardis book many of his ideas translate into this show and help clarify any confusing issues. When it comes to Adnan his job is to host the show and push the show a long. Yes at times he is over hyper but his job isn’t to disagree or agree even though he gives his opinions at times. We aren’t listening to hear his opinion anyways, it’s all about Lombardi and what he has to say. With that being said I would recommend getting more guests that maybe do have differing opinions from Lombardi and have actual discussions about certain topics.

A+
