    I'm going to get dogpiled for this but "El Presidente" is a convenient cop out that he can use at any time to blur the lines between his real opinions and the "character's" opinions.

    When he says something out of bounds, like today, it can easily be attributed to "el pres" and not "Dave"

    Wouldn’t his employers have to be the one complaining for anything to happen? That isn’t gonna happen

    yea. I get the "character" but that doesn't mean everything wrong/mean he does is character and every good thing is Dave. Think he has shown his ass a few times unnecessarily. Much like this, there was no point in bringing it up

    the content guys and girls probably are but the production/sales/merch/tech people probably feel a tad bit differently

    I’m not a lawyer nor a labor relations expert but I’m pretty confident an owner of a company cannot make explicit threats to fire employees who attempt to unionize in a state like New York which I am assuming has significant labor protection regulations.

    ok, hear me out on this.

    Pres: anyone who DMs this dude will be fired on the spot

    Big Cat: DMs the guy immediately.

    Big Cat is not fired.

    the ringer making 0 content about their attempt to unionize is why barstool is worth 100 million and the ringer is worth 5

    there wouldn't be any. they do depositions and dave says it was a joke and as proof one of my employees did what i said not to and there were no repercussions. they depose a handful of other employees and ask them if they thought it was a joke or not and all say it was a joke. and then it goes away.

    and that's if it even gets that far which is like a 5% chance

    I would not anticipate her replying as much as Dave would want her too. If she doesn’t, was she “got?”

    Don't think she's "got." Just dave is nuts with his one sided feuds. Don't think it's a world serious people would want to step into.

    The amount of people that take Dave and his nonsense serious is something.

    He's been pulling this same move for 15 years.

    Man, Davey Pageviews got you good. Not only are you consuming every ounce of content looking for fallout, you’re stanning for him doing illegal things.

    I normally dislike him very much, but this one is a great piece of work.

    I’m no Barstool expert but this is clearly a troll of the Ringer with everyone that actually works there is in on the joke? Crazy how quickly they’ve got people swallowing the lure.

    Dave is an insufferable douche and Tom Hanks himself doesn’t have the acting chops to keep up a character this long. He is his persona for the most part but it creates content and clicks and it’s made him rich so I’ll tip my cap.
