    There was a short segment in Episode 24 of Unnecessary Tackle-Cast that was deleted from the final cut. Not because of length or lack of relevance, but because certain parties are trying to hide the truth. You see, the hosts of Unnecessary Tackle-Cast uncovered a potentially devastating secret about YouTuber and NYT Bestselling Author John Green. Let's just say it concerns supposed nocturnal vigilantism. Capes may or may not be involved. During post-production we were visited by unnamed men in dark suits from a shadowy intelligence agency and warned about DIRE CONSEQUENCES if we leak this information. But you, our loyal listeners, deserve to hear the truth. We've presented the evidence. Decide for yourselves. ------- SUBSCRIBE TO US WITH ITUNES: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/unnecessary-tackle-cast/id837111944?mt=2 SUBSCRIBE TO US WITH FEEDBURNER: http://feeds.feedburner.com/UnnecessaryTackle-cast (Ignore the huge banner image) Email us at: [email protected] Nerdfighter Football Club: http:
