Except they aren’t committing crimes and are instead doing subjective things so you’re making a stupid analogy. As in most things of life, this isn’t a simple binary thing and is more akin to a spectrum. Where everyone’s spectrum is different.
Well this should get interesting.Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone sued Barstool Sports and contributor Kirk Minihane today for an interview about the Barstool/Bruins towel controversy he claims Minihane conducted without his permission - while pretending to be the Globe's Kevin Cullen.
In the suit, filed in Middlesex Superior Court, Curtatone says this violates the Massachusetts wiretap law, which requires a person's consent to record them over the phone.
Exactly.Some of what Boras said made sense but some of it was total shit. Do entrepreneurs get bailed out when they take a risk and fail? Why should baseball players be any different?
Seems an awfully harsh reply over nothing.It would be like if I said every poster on Sons of Sam Horn is an unfunny moron because Dummy Hoy posts here.
And I obviously don't pay enough attention to any of that to know the difference. I've sampled a bunch of Barstool product. I like Chicklets because hockey locker rooms are hilarious, and I listened to zero blog 30 for a while but Cons annoyed me too much. The rest of it ranged from not really my thing to thinking the persons were shitheads. I don't come in here and chastise people for listening just because I don't, but I do think it's funny the zealousness with which people defend all things Barstool. And I happen to find it funny that they all seem have ridiculous nicknames. Much like Animal House. But YMMV obviously.It's really not. One is the host of a top 10 podcast in the country and had a show on ESPN. The others are/have not.
Although In my defense, between big cat and kfc and pft and yp and flounder and pinto and whatnot, it’s a bit confusing.
For what it's worth, I laughed at "flounder and pinto". The space of overlap between ridiculous fratty nicknames and sports talk might as well be known as "Bro Culture".And I happen to find it funny that they all seem have ridiculous nicknames. Much like Animal House. But YMMV obviously.
When I heard what he did I found it stupid and understood why he was fired. Then a few days after he was fired he was on Kirks podcast and explained his thought process which kind of made sense to me. I wish they gave him a long suspension but I understand why he was fired and he clearly understands why as well.
