About this Episode

First off, condolences to all the people laid off today. Secondly, AB Esports signifying a move away from live events as we finally turn the corner of the pandemic back to normalcy signals a huge lack of confidence in the OWL and CDL compared to ROI. If I was a team owner who had paid tens of millions to get into one or both of these leagues, I wouldn't be happy right now.
