    If I had an infinity gauntlet I’d snap him back with the quickness

    This is an extra layer of shit on top of it, but it would still be a disaster even if the product itself worked flawlessly.

    Lol at Egg properly marketing anything ever. Maybe marketing himself as a fan 25 years ago.

    He marketed himself very well in the early days. That's just a fact.

    He changed his persona into the BLAF we all know today, put himself on the cover of the first UFC magazine, got a (heavily photoshopped) version of himself on the cover of muscle and fitness. He turned himself into the biggest star in the sport for a good while.

    Curious, what speed internet do you have and which provider? Not doubting you or even trying to suggest you are doing anything wrong. Just wondering what speed is actually required to stream E+ smoothly.

    Optimum. I think it's either 100 or 200 mps. I have to doublecheck. Either should be plenty. We use many other streaming services in my house with HD video just fine.

    Also, my husband's phone has a feature where if you keep the wifi and mobile data on at the same time the download speed is enhanced.

    I don't think it has anything to do with our Internet speed, but the next time I watch something I will try to remember to alter the settings if possible and report. I think with espn+ you can also download to watch offline, so I need to try that too and see if it still has a problem.

    Rumour has it Brook popped and that’s why he retired.
