I listen to Buffer's podcast. It's really a mixed bag for me. Bruce is such a glad-hander it makes me sick at times. I remember him talking at length about how much he disliked Phil Helmuth and how he'd slap him up if he ever had to sit across the table from him. Then he has the poker brat on a show and washes his balls for the better part of 20 minutes.
He's a complete shill for the Zuffa team as well. In fact I think the show two weeks ago where TJ actually called him on the shilling was probably the most entertained I've been in a long time by the podcast. I've wavered back and forth as to whether or not I'll continue to listen to the show. It truly has it's high and low points.
Buffer is very much a homer/nuthugger. I expect that, though, since he *is* employed by Zuffa and the UFC. I agree that it *can* be over the top at times (most of the time) but it doesn't really bother me.
I enjoy the interviews most of all, which is the reason I think I like it so much.
My only true complaint (and really only because it annoys the crap out of me) is the way TJ says Fedor's name (Fay-a-door). It drives me nuts.
