Just to clarify, Sam Ponder was upset that the creator of barstool called her a slut three years ago. Katie Nolan was upset that barstool offered a contract to Elika Sadeghi that had certain language regarding her being offended at work. Nolan did not tweet about PMT at espn, and to my knowledge she didn't comment on it publicly.Katie may not be long for ESPN.
After the shade Katie threw at Barstool in regards to the Sam Ponder contract a couple weeks ago, to go over to ESPN and have this happen...it probably isn't sitting well with her.
It's way deeper than that. She worked for Michael Davies (Embassy Row / Men in Blazers) for a long time. Davo and Embassy Row are very associated with Barstool.I like Katie but acting surprised in 2017 that Barstool is a misogynist, bro culture cesspool because it happened to finally affect one of your friends is really weak.
Yup. I listened to it yesterday and it was all over the place. Katie has never really been great in the podcast format. She's been at her best when she sticks to one topic and riffs on it. I almost wonder if she's better as a 2nd seat to someone who can keep her more focused, because as a lead she doesn't seem to have the focus to lead a show.I agree with the review. I’m a big fan but this was just an unorganized mess.
The sick person was a producer that won’t have a speaking role, or at least a minimal one. Really hope it’s just getting the kinks out.
Leading up to the Super Bowl should be pretty good for her, I think.I thought her old podcast was pretty consistently good but the first few episodes at ESPN have not been as strong, despite following essentially the same format. Given that she was also making her tv show alongside the FS1 podcast, maybe that provided a little more structure to the process? On the most recent pod she essentially admits to doing very little prep for the opening segment, basically working through a random list of thoughts in real time, and it just goes all over the place. With some planning and editing it could be much better. Also, Ashley the producer/co-host does not seem to offer as much as her producer who came on-air (Dave?) at FS1. Finally, Shea Serrano, who I really like as a writer, didn't have much to say and was not particularly funny as a guest.
It's not going to be a great two weeks for any Brady/Patriots haters. On the national shows it's going to be how great Brady and Belichick are. Maybe some exceptions but not that many.The Tom Brady adulation isn’t going to win her many fans outside of the 495 corridor
Based on her podcast tales of staying up until 4am playing Fortnight on a regular basis, there's no way she could manage to do a morning show even if it was well done. An evening/late night show seems to be more her speed (and audience).ESPN doesn't seem to have the faintest idea of how to utilize her talent, but she understands what she needs to do to avoid disaster: they wanted her to be a part of or a fixture on Get Up! and she said no way...
No you didn't. If you would like to accuse someone or a media entity of being anti-semitic, you have to do better than what you wrote. MUCH better than a bunch of hackneyed cliches that you're projecting on to other people.I was clear, concise and used simple English words, exactly what portion of my characterizations of these hosts do you want to dispute ?
I in NO WAY accused either of these people, or anyone in particular, of being anti-semitic, hell they are both Jewish. I OBSERVED that they both have developed into on-air personnas that have an unfortunate set of characteristics that have, traditionally, been used to stereotype Jews. I also commenced my observation by specifically stating I don't believe any of this has been deliberate and just happened to turn out this way currently. I repeat: I DID NOT "accuse someone or a media entity of being anti-semitic", in fact I was VERY CAREFUL to make sure I did not do anything of the sort. Perhaps you should consider doing better at reading comprehension.No you didn't. If you would like to accuse someone or a media entity of being anti-semitic, you have to do better than what you wrote. MUCH better than a bunch of hackneyed cliches that you're projecting on to other people.
This is a warning to you to be better.
Do you ever watch Lebatard from 10am - 1pm, now on ESPN2 (used to be on ESPNU which made it quite obscure unless your package includes all the ESPN channels) or listen to their show via radio ? I assume not since you seem unfamiliar with Stugotz. You can also see him now in a segment on Golic/Wingo most days in the 6-7am hour.So, Greenie and who are these anti-Semitic caricatures?
I mean you can hate the players or the shows on their own merits just fine, i don't understand the additional assertations.
I see LeBatard's late afternoon show. I saw Stugotz once, for about 3 minutes and turned off. I got the impression that he was a jerk, not that he was a Semitic characterDo you ever watch Lebatard from 10am - 1pm, now on ESPN2 (used to be on ESPNU which made it quite obscure unless your package includes all the ESPN channels) or listen to their show via radio ?

I think lots of people want to be in the Katie Nolan business, but none of them seem to know what that business is. She's smart, attractive, funny, and knows her subject matter. Male or female, if you have 2 out of those 4 you can keep a regular gig in the media.Further proof they not only have no idea what to do with her, but they are scared shitless to have her anywhere near the ESPN 'brand'
I'm generally on the fence about Drunk History, but if you're a baseball fan this week's episode—with Katie—about the Black Sox, Moses “Fleetwood” Walker, and the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (A League of their Own) is pretty good.She was pretty good on Drunk History this week about Teddy Roosevelt.
