NML Pickleball Podcast Ep. 7 – Is Ben Johns a Terrible GM?

*we know the audio isn’t ideal in this one. Our first video one without a guest and we’re figuring this out. We rushed the recording and didn’t take enough time to test what it sounded like. Appreciate everyone’s patience here!

With MLP Atlanta in the books, we recap all the happenings from the first MLP event of the new season. We dive into our takeaways from the weekend, play a little bit of where NML was right and wrong, and finish off the episode with another segment of Girlfriend Corner.

You can watch the podcast on YouTube and listen on Apple or Spotify.

    Thank you for your time and posting. The sound wasn’t too bad, it was at a good loudness so that helped. 6 MLP weekends, 12 MLP doubles/singles weekends, and 3 months off for players sounds good to me. Better communication from MLP would be great, posting info on their website and I liked the new scoring system.

    As for your title, “Is BJ a terrible GM?” I’ve worked w/ terrible GMs. They don’t care about staff, are demeaning, yell at you in front of customers, etc. How about a title of, “Does BJ make poor teammate choices at MLP?”

      Thanks David. Glad some people were ok with it. Your idea of 12 sounds solid and better communication would be better.

      Sure that’s fair about Ben. He is just picking players
