    Great Show!!! I don’t think most of those guys knew what they were in for. Can’t wait until next week.

  2. I like how they put them on their toes right away! Who got cut? I fell asleep before the show ended lol

  3. OH…come on! I felt like I was watching an episode of “The Apprentice.” If Michael had put on a bad toupee and said you’re fired it would have been perfect.

    The concept is good, but Michael walking around like he is the on field Bad Ass is a bit over the top for me. Make it more inline with HBO’s “Hard Knocks” program. Follow the players and their progress and not so much focus on making them suffer. Projectile vomiting on camera didn’t seem necessary to me, buy hey… whatever floats your boat.

    Lose the dramatic lighting effect as Michael enters the field from the tunnel, lose the suit coat with the turned up collar. Put on some shorts and a practice shirt and show us what makes the “Playmaker” the best.

    Just my 2 Cents… what can you get for 2 Cents, just an opinion!

  4. Hey – whats up. Thanks for the info. I’ve been digging around for info, but there is so much out there. Yahoo lead me here – good for you i guess! Keep up the good work. I will be coming back in a couple of days to see if there is any more info.
