Watch: ABC

The new usual rules apply:

  1. No swearing.
  2. No pictures/videos
  3. No discussions of streaming besides all the legit ones.
  4. Be cool to not only each other, but also somewhat respectful toward the people on TV. It’s totally appropriate to vent frustration, of course.
  5. Occasional complaints about bad calls are totally fine. Constant, repeated complaints about the refs (including in ALL CAPS) are not.
