New Year Bullshit from the 1st of Jan

2 down: Offload, even times in the ultimate 11-across (tanker) of ill-repute (5, 6)
It’s supposed to be offload even times in the ultimate = off loadeven xx in z = exxonvalde z = Exxon Valdez = tanker of ill-repute.

The clear problem: times is just x, not xx.

The questionable: ultimate = z seems a bit weak a connection (although I’d pass that, just).

8 across: Nothing 7-down (robs), apparently (3)
Apparently ain’t no aural indicator: robs apparently = nicks apparently = nix = nothing.
