This was electric
Big cat and pft egging him on in the background killed me
“His penis doesn’t work, oh and he’s fat now”
The video of Dave playing Pebble Beach is finally up.
How does the college football guy not know who Brodie croyle is?
that's the barstool difference. Hiring people to cover sports they don't know that much about.
They’ve missed their mark in the south because their lead college football guy was a 21 year old intern from New York.
Someone needs to let Barstool know ...
I think they are doing an electric chair to night for the Blues/B’s game 6
Just imagine the content if they had a legit CFB guy that went to random tailgates in the SEC
Wouldn't surprise me if they do that with Brandon Walker.
They also have zero coverage of the super regionals, obviously a pretty popular sport in south where they've said they want to grow.
Didn't they just move him to NYC?
Doesn't mean he can't travel Fall weekends. He already has said that he is going to be a part of their college football coverage this year.
I need Mush and Walker at a CFB tailgate every weekend
Mush in Mississippi was amazing
Walker is moving to NY but they’ve already announced he’s doing to college football show, a college football podcast and will be traveling around for games on the weekend.
An actual CFB podcast would be great. PMT is a little exhausting with how much discussion they devote to the NFL over CFB during football season.
the pick em' pod is pretty much a CFB podcast.
Eh, the pick em pod is great. But given that it had no episodes during the CFP, no season wrap up episode, and multiple discussions of Hawaii football (funny as they were), I think it makes for a pretty shitty CFB podcast.
I mean, come on...
Mush at that festival was incredible. His mind was blow.
Everything coming up Pageviews.
BC gonna get so fat with this new baby
You are also team Gigi “Reese Witherspoon Chin” Meyer, so there’s that.
It's hard always being correct
I love the Tank so much.
Blind Mike coming back to Barstool
Need an updated ping pong game with Dave.
Just finished this episode. My god he bombed that. I'm absolutely floored that he tried to pitch the experience instead of the "tech" (a full tailgate built within a shipping container so it's portable).
That was awful, but him getting shook with the wrong presentation, and it turning out to just be a different font, was hilarious.
so apparently hbo has been interviewing face, Erika, and ria. And it’s gonna be a hit piece
On barstool. Been following Pres around for a few weeks.
He thinks it will be a hit piece bc the third interview he did had was more aggressive.
Said the first two were friendly.
The calling Ria too ugly for camera in 5 years is what he expects to get a lot of play.
Yeah they apparently asked her about it too
Probably a safe assumption.
Ria said today she was “1000% supportive” of Dave and Barstool during the questions. Curious to see how they spin it.
Said she’s happy it happened and soon after realized it was all in jest and part of the content.
what would HBO air it on?
Probably hbo if I had to guess
Yea it’s a Real Sports segment iirc
Barstool’s founder Dave Portnoy opened up the discussion on the topic by saying he has “become increasingly more distraught” about what he predicts will be a “full-blown hit piece.”
Portnoy says that the HBO reporter followed him around the office and accompanied him to a pizza review and that everything turned when he and Barstool CEO Erika Nardini went in for interviews and it turned into a several-hour grilling session. He adds that he went into it thinking the piece would be positive, but that his interview was “not positive … this is going to be a debacle.” He went on to say that his spot was done without make-up, and that they seemed to want him sweating and looking like Richard Nixon.
the fact that pres and everyone else is excusing the ria episode as "content" is pretty sad. just own up to being a dick and move on. trying to excuse it as something it's not isn't very pres-like.
I’m amazed that anybody at Barstool leadership would let Real Sports run wild with their story. I mean if you’ve watched Real Sports, you know the angle they are going to come at it from. I guess any press is good press?
Also HBO owns The Ringer, nobody stopped and asked a question about that?
what does the ringer have to do with it?
It doesn't. This isn't some sort of vendetta HBO and their related companies have against Barstool. It's a self-inflicted wound that frankly Erika is there to prevent.
HBO owns the Ringer, HBO’s sports programming is influenced by and in part created by the Ringer. Though there is seemingly a serious armistice between Pres and Simmons and their companies, I think they are both driven in proving that they are the superior media mogul. If you don’t think Simmons would use his influence if only to slightly sway some element of the perspective the story is presented in or who gets interviewed as somebody that was “affected” but Barstool, or whatever, you are totally forgetting when he literally thought he was more powerful and smart and right than all of fucking ESPN and got shit canned from the coziest job in sports media by not being able contain his ego and need to be right.
Maybe he has mellowed, but Barstool thinking they were going to get a puff piece or something would be foolish considering whose behind enemy lines at HBO.
I mean Ria is excusing it.
Side note barstool hit the 100million net worth mark today
