There is a local pizza place about 2 minutes from my house called Zuppardi's. They make excellent pizza and are family owned and run. I doubt that they had any clue about Barstool or what it stood for before he walked in. The owners are seniors and not into podcasts or talk radio. They just looked at it as being an honor to serve a customer and maybe get some local publicity. I know for a fact that they did not look up Barstool's past positions before agreeing to serve him. I do not take Zuppardi's agreement to serve Barstool as a clear endorsement of Barstool's politics.
So @LoseRemersal you saying that I should stop going to my local pizza place just because they served a pie to Barstool once? I mean the owners did not know what Barstool was beforehand. Why penalize them?

Zuppardi's doesn't have to do shit and you don't need to stop going there. That's ridiculous. But consumers of the app (which is what this discussion was about), should realize that there's really, really no shortage of pizza coverage out there. Zuppardi's itself has been featured in Lonely Planet, a Thrillist-produced TV show, and the freaking New York Times (where arguably the most famous food writer in the world called it the best clam pie he's ever had). I can't stress this enough: you really don't need to support the misogynist dumpster fire that is Barstool Sports in order to find good pizza.

Lose was stating that every single pizza place that served Barstool should be avoided since by serving them, the place is implicitly endorsing Barstool's politics. I think that is ridiculous and extreme. I guess we agree to disagree.

Re-read what Lose said:

I like great pizza but I'm not going to buy it from a place with a political sign outside that I disagree strongly with. Similarly I won't download someone who I disagree with's app that provides him with revenue or at least numbers supporting him or his product. Just like there are hotels in NYC with a certain name on them I'll never stay in, etc, etc.

The point isn't about the pizza place(s), it's about his app. There's other avenues to finding good pizza without putting money in his pocket. If one feels strongly about him and his stance on a subject, then using his app makes them hypocritical. It's not implying anything about the pizza place. Think bigger than that.

Portnoy is such a fucking asshole. CNBC giving this lunatic airtime is absolute insanity to me. I guess they want to appeal to the stoolies, but CNBC should know better.

Its now just a singular host with Alex running the show. Sofia's boyfriend aka suitman (an HBO executive) had the balls to try to move the podcast someplace else while they were under contract with Barstool. Backstabbing happened between the girls and Barstool just did a deal with Alex.
Yeah, Portnoy has been trolling "Suitman" nonstop.
