Pardon my Take Stuff

Post by EdRomero » Fri Nov 15, 2019 9:16 am





I was going to put these in the Deadspin thread, then I thought about making a Barstool thread, but then I thought there should be a thread for them because they're so prolific and they're really good.

Barstool is so bad. Guess you're not a real man unless you're carrying a 1970s-style Samsonite suitcase through the airport with your arms LIKE A REAL MAN!

ETA: Only reason it's really noteworthy is it seems like every Barstool post is a variation of this same theme. If you do <some ridiculously ordinary and banal thing that literally almost every single man does> then YOU'RE NOT A REAL MAN!

I was going to make a barstool thread because it's stupid the conversation is in the Deadspin thread, but I feel PMT is better than the rest of barstool and was worth discussing without getting caught up in the barstool is awful discussion.

Agreed. PMT are tainted by association. There’s probably half decent people working in White House too but if they’re still working there now knowing what they know then......

Nicely put.

How many times did I see headlines along the lines of "Fox News Anchor Burns Trump," or "This Was Said on FOX?!" and just thought - "oh, Shep Smith."

A news conglomerate using propaganda to brainwash half of the American public and directly working with the leadership of the United States which is affecting the environment, lives of millions, the courts and structure of US government, among other things is a great comparison to a sports blog.

I’m sort of with Romero on this one. Portnoy is truly awful but overall I find comparisons between Barstool and right-wing propaganda to be overblown. IMO there are a few incredibly irritating people there and a few legitimately talented people, but most of their contributors are fairly nondescript. Also, I can’t really fault people like PFT for choosing to work there when so many of the other big sports blogs have been notoriously bad at fairly paying their contributors.

All that being said, I do have issues with the message Barstool (and especially Portnoy) pushes that you can and should act like an asshole college student even as an adult, as I think it leads to shitty behavior by insecure young men. But Barstool is hardly the first popular website to capitalize on that type of branding.

I don't see the problem with the very first tweet of this thead. I'm reading it as sarcasm calling out hypocrisy of one act of violence being swept under the rug while the other is (rightly) castigated. I don't even fully agree but I think the logic behind it is sound.

ETA. Unless it wasn't sarcasm. In that case, fuck him.

Fuck Barstool and anyone who associates with them. There's a billion avenues to get sports content, and if you feel the need to get it from them "because they tell it like it is" or "they're unapologetic about who they are", you're part of the problem. It is an echo chamber devoid of any common courtesy or kindness, leaning on a public that loves a hot take to get social interaction on the internet. Fuck them. You have that platform to reach people and that misogynistic, boot licking, alpha male bullshit is all they can come up with? Fuck. That. Shit.

I'd argue most of the writers are nondescript to prevent it from sinking into the Infowars swamp. Their banality allows for the plausible deniability necessary to peddle their shit of mocking Asian women to their faces in a comedy club.

I mean, anyone is welcome to consume their content. But everyone else is also welcome to judge you because of it.

If you have to perform justification calisthenics to say why they’re better than the rest of the platform, you already know it’s an issue.

I read PFT Commenter before he went to Barstool, which led me Big Cat. Their Celtics and Red Sox writers are better than just about everything else available -- these calisthenics are exhausting.

It's kind of the opposite. Barstool wouldn't exist without Boston being the way it is.

Also, does the “anyone who associates with Barstool is reprehensible” rule also apply to athletes and journalists who give interviews on their podcasts? Because Sidney Crosby, Patrick Mahomes, Chris Long, Blake Griffin, George Brett, SVP and Rachel Nichols have all done that. And I like all of them and have listened to their interviews.

I would certainly like an athlete or celebrity more if they told Barstool to fuck off but the vast majority are publicity whores.

Yea, so just like with watching Dave Chappelle's latest stand up or going to see Joker in theaters, I'm gonna, gasp, not let folks on the board decide how guilty I should feel for liking things that are questionable to them. I stopped being Catholic for this reason.

I'll keep "associating" with Barstool Sports and I guess I'll just have to live with myself despite my moral failings. Darn.

I’ve followed PFC for years on Twitter (and at KSK back in the day but that isn’t relevant to what I’m about to type) and I don’t know what changed but it’s only been the last couple of weeks that I’ve noticed other barstool accounts pushed into my feed. Maybe an increase in showing accounts followed by people I follow?

One of the things I noticed on Twitter a couple years ago is that, if I clicked on a tweet someone retweeted into my feed, I would eventually start to see tweets liked by the same user even though I "shouldn't" have been seeing them. It (along with other things like constant ads and the feeling that I wasn't seeing tweets of people I follow - I don't follow that many people where I'm just scrolling) eventually became very annoying. After seeing a recommendation for Tweetlogix, I downloaded it and it cleans up everything. No ads other than from people I follow, no polls, no promoted tweets, no tweets someone else liked, everything in chronological order. It's worlds better.

Whenever I've used the twitter account for the website I write for, it is a disorganized shitshow of a mess with things in slapdash, haphazard order. I don't understand how people can use the actual twitter app and all the liked tweets that show up in their timeline make me want to delete their followers.

Closest we have to a Barstool thread.

A casino company is buying Barstool Sports in a $450 million deal

The Ringer has to be worth more than $200 million now, right?

*Fauchi

What a difference 2 months makes. Mike Pence's office specifically targeted popular podcasts (like PMT) to get the word out when COVID first came in the scene and now this?

Big Cat and PFT need to get traded to The Ringer, ASAP.
