Poison pen is an interesting choice.. I think of him more as a host though. Wasn't LNS already doing this to an extent? I agree Dan needs to go.. maybe placate him with one small segment.. I don't think he is totally useless. It's really difficult to say who should get the nod though. Perhaps do some tonight showesque shuffling like back when Johnny Carson was ending his reign and try out a few different people and see who has the best Chemistry with BRC (pause).. In others words, I'm going to hold off on voting for now

did not see this last one but i like Dan as a host.

Probably going to watch the ppv tonight, ill go back here if i change my mind.
Kinda think it HAS to be Dan and Chris for it to work tho, they are a good duo.
chris keeps dan somewhat under controll, LNS cant handle drunkbag dan


And from that list i would probably take poison pen.

I just wish they would go back to their arrangement with the chairs and a small table. That setting inside the pit right after the battles have ended doesn't really work to me.

I think it's important to note that DBD commentates these ppv's for free. Idk how many other known battle rap personalities would be willing to do that.

Jay blac does ONE kotd promo video and now people wanna fly him across the country to host ppvs. Meanwhile, CAPS has been supporting kotd way more, for way longer and has just one vote.

I personally don't think either one of them would work out, but off the strength of CAPS being supportive of kotd since day one, and jay blac doing just one promo video to expand his subscribers, I really think CAPS deserves more consideration.

Fully agree with this, Jayblac has a cool personality but CAPS has been one of the most supportive of KOTD and people still ask why he's doesn't do enough videos about KOTD smh. Personally he would be too brutally honest but I think that's what battle rap needs nowadays.

I actually think his honesty would be a nice, refreshing change from dan's homerism, but I can also see why kotd would like to keep things the way they are, in spite of so many of their customers not liking it


*edit

I just realized, it'd also probably piss dan off if he got replaced by the guy he spends so much of his time hating on. So there's probably no chance of that happening, anyway, considering how loyal the fresh coast clique is to each other.

No, googling is the appropriate action for when u want a definition for a word, not inconveniencing someone else to produce the definition for you

But I made a similar thread nearly a year ago, and avocado/jpro were not at all receptive to the idea of switching out dan. I think I recommended seanzo, iirc. I had the same complaints then that everyone is having now, and they made it clear that dan isn't going anywhere. Could've been because I was the one who made the thread, tbf, and they were just doing it to spite me. Probably thinking I was just making it up or hating, idk...

I buy a 1/3rd of the KOTD PPVs. I've always wanted to watch the stream for hours, except in-between battles can be unbearable. Most often, I would just do something else and keep checking to see if the battle is back up.

I'd rather watch commentary, interviews, etc. There seems to be a HUGE opportunity to have consistently great content between battles.

KOTD canned Lush, why would they not can Dirtbag?

DBD has his strengths but Godamit why can't he just leave himself out of every analogy/antidote regarding battling. I've said it before on his podcast it is funny as its a recurring theme like hinting towards Dennis being a sexual predator in 'always sunny in Philadelphia' but this isn't a podcast and it gets beyond tiring.

I'm surprised the powers that be haven't had a quite word with him already regarding this as its not like it's the first time people are complaining.

LUsh, I know you have to stick up for your friends but come'on, the point of moving in the PPV is money and the commentary is obviously fucking with it if people are tuning out between battles when us nerds are easily entertained by bts tidbits of information, funny stories and/or rotating battlers through to be interviewed.

Must be hard to fill in so much time, especially if there is no real script to follow but I'd imagine with a little bit of preparation this could go much smoother.

Dan is totally salvageable, has to lose the FC bias and the constant pumping of his own tire as he is a natural entertainer as the podcast proves.

Everyone talks so much shit about business but miss capitalizing off great opportunities but hey, 30+ year old man poets aren't exactly people I'd rely on where money is concerned.

Entertain me!!!!

Sketch wouldn't be too biased, but I don't know. BRC is the "straight man" of the duo, and the compliment would be someone a bit more comedic to balance this all out?

I'm just glad it's even up for any kind of discussion, because we've been saying Dirtbag Dan is horrible forever. Way too much of a homer, and too often annoying.

I like Dan. Its hard to talk about ANYTHING for 5 hours straight let alone battle rap and having his history to fall back on is something you want in a commentator. Otherwise you just have off topic ranmbling and inside jokes nobody understands. Watching jeffery and laugh n stalk was painful on GNG.

Battlerap chris as the straight man and Dan as color commentator makes most sense.

LnS can be funny and is knowledgeable but hes too talk backish for me. He has this "seasoned fan" elitist demeanor that rubs me the wrong way. I also think he interjects his oppinions during interviews. "So you just lost 2-1 due to that stumble in the third, how do you feel it went?"

Jayblack is my dude but there's no evidence he's capable other than well thought out, scripted edited videos. He could be on in the future and I'd like to see it.

They should definitely give you a chance. Atm it seems like the hosts just show up and start talking and grabbing whoever is near them for interviews. Some organisation and more communication with production crew would be epic. Get em Sketch!
