I wonder if Roger has any say in these things? Nothing would make Portnoy happier than to get some mileage out of having the Bills say yes and then somehow get overturned.

Can't the NFL just do what FIFA/UEFA does, and ask the broadcast partners not refer to the stadiums by their branded names?

Clubs aren’t franchises. They don’t pay franchise fees to establish a club to National FAs/UEFA/FIFA. Franchises are equity partners in their league. The NFL would devalue the sponsorship rights of its partners by doing that. The franchises wouldn’t go along with that just to keep out Barstool.

The Winkelvii spent time trying to teach Portnoy about Bitcoin last week, he invested, and he's spent a lot of time since the shitting all over it as an investment, finally announcing yesterday or today that he had sold his crypto. Those guys have trouble picking business partners.

Between here and everywhere.
Ellie Schnitt (@holy_schnitt) just announced she was leaving Barstool.

She had been Twitter quiet, and her podcast (Schnitt talk) had become much less frequent since the racism accusations came out against Portnoy.

Ellie was a big get for them at the time, and I have to imagine part of her leaving was because of Barstools “brand” and almost anti-social justice stance.

In her goodbye tweet, she specifically thanks her co-workers, but not Dave or Erika. Which is..interesting.

Minihane's "fans" really made things miserable for her for awhile. I think she was trying to raise money for bail for people who were arrested during protests. And Kirk really went after her and in turn, his listeners just flooded her twitter.

I’m really interested if more will come out about Nardini. She’s kind of trumpeted as this great person yet the stuff I’ve heard about her on podcasts (specifically the Willie Colon one after the video of Portnoy dropping n bombs) she seems like a more buttoned up/PC version of Portnoy.

It cannot be easy to launch a brand-new app in a heavily-regulated space by a date certain, but soft-launching your much-hyped sportsbook app a week after the football season and only in PA seems less than ideal.

Carrabis and Hubbs are the only bearable people there IMO. I check it for baseball and that’s it. Too many garbage people there, though I admit I could be missing out by not following Big Cat or PFTC.

Carrabis and Hubbs are truly unbearable, I'm shocked anyone actually likes them

carrabis's act is cleanly divided into two parts, ultimate red sox homer, and troll to everything new york baseball. if i wasn't a boston fan his content would be unwatchable for me

He‘s an Unbiased Journalist™️, though. If I were like a Marlins fan I’d probably have no interest either to be fair.

I’m a Red Sox fan and Carrabis is insufferable.

He’s essentially everything you hate about stereotypical Yankee fans in Boston form.
