  • The third part in our epic series, featuring listener questions from around the world
By Gary Gramling
August 17, 2017

From the makers of Mailbag Pool Party and Mailbag II: Son of Mailbag, we bring you Mailbag III: Return of Mailbag.

This one was especially wacky. Cage matches? Rating uniforms? Journalistic integrity? Whaaaaaa?

Of course, we guaranteed (and continue to guarantee) that we will answer your question if it is submitted along with an iTunes review. We have a deadline now though! Friday August 18. We won’t take guaranteed preseason mailbag questions after that.

Andy and I also continue to inconvenience listeners from around the world. Sorry, if you’re not in the U.S. (and therefore listening on the U.S. version of iTunes, which is what we have), you need to screengrab your review and email it to talkback@themmqb.com. We beg your forgiveness and thank you for your patience.

What’s wrong with you! Subscribe to The MMQB: 10 Things Podcast already and you’ll have it in your feed first thing Monday morning every Monday morning (for non-subscribers, there is a lag.) Here it is, Mailbag III: Return of Mailbag...

Social media things!:
