  • Thank you Jeff Cannata for Finally standing up to Garnett this week!

    The main reason this show has gone way downhill for me over the past year as well as a Huge reason I feel this show is not nearly as good as the old 1up Yours shows is the amazing lack of respect that Garnett shows his co-hosts (on top of Garnetts constant failed attempts at trying to be funny). I can appreciate that Garnett likes to consistently play devils advocate towards what everyone on the show is enjoying, but over the past year Garnett just comes across as your random internet troll trolling games he has barely and sometimes even Never played.

    It is also not a discussion most of the time but just Garnett talking over his co-hosts, cutting them off, or not letting them get a word in, which is not good discussion, it is just Garnett being a verbal bully and it seems that people are afraid to stand up to him because it is Garnett's show. It was a breath of fresh air this week for Canatta to not just sit and take Garnett's crap and stand up to him. Still I would much rather Garnett treat his co-hosts with more respect and play devils advocate in a way where he doesn't come across as a random internet troll, but I feel that the Garnett from the 1up days has probably been lost to current Garnett's massive ego.
