    Short of a tornado of sexual harassment lawsuits surfacing, I just don’t understand the mechanism that is going to be used to remove Dave for his old content.

    So it makes less racist if it happened 20 years ago? And less racist because they apologized for it?

    if he was going to get #metoo'd it would've happened already

    he was gross when he started barstool and then married for a lot of it. pretty sure he has only been a cocksman for a couple of years

    less racist because he agrees with their current day politics

    Unless Dave wants them to be firmly in the Clay Travis white fragility lane, he needs to pull himself back from politics, get off of Tucker Carlson, and acknowledge that he's a dumbass who has nowhere near the qualifications to opine on politics or social justice issues. An ounce of self-awareness wouldn't cure the heat they're getting (or will continue to get), but it's the right thing to do.

    you are the only one comparing the level of racism to different incidents.

    Something is more attributable to a person's current views and stances if they did something egregious 3-4 years ago and continue with similar conduct than someone who did something 20+ years ago, has apologized, and their conduct has moved beyond that incident.

    The people largely yelling for barstool to be cancelled have already personally cancelled barstool or never were fans. I don’t see what more they can really do. Barstool’s platform is largely isolated - you either consume their content or you don’t, so it’s not even like they can really be pulled from things, blacklisted, etc. I would imagine there will always be advertisers willing to work with them.

    First, you are in a thread with several consumers expressing concern. Second, look at Tucker Carlson's advertisers, or what is happening to Facebook. People will make advertisers bend to public pressure, and then there is a domino effect, and then you are staring in the face of utilizing the My Pillow Guy for 60% of your advertising.

    To stop consuming all barstool content, yeah. I’m not going to stop listening to my favourite hockey podcast, for example, because of something Portnoy said on twitter. I can see why some may, but I also don’t think it makes one a bad person to continue.

    I don't think we're too far from seeing a lot fewer good guests appearing on barstool platforms, especially if Portnoy leans into the indignant victim millionaire roll.

    PMT having Fauci on and then Dave’s Fauci rants really highlight the differences between the two entities, but create an overall environment where important people pass on going on PMT because of Portnoy.

    I agree with this. Another poster said recently that Dave thinks he has the best answers/responses for every situation, but best option is to sit back.

    Nope. He is too good at explaining the pain of being a fan of certain teams. He understands the dynamics of each team and he is naturally pessimistic about them, like most chicago fans

    Cancel culture is the new SJW. A term meant to belittle those who have an issue with your past or recent actions.

    Republicans have been pretty good at creating terms to detract from what's really going on

    It's why they don't think they're racist at all.

    and cancel culture is really just a term for woke millennials who spend a lot of time online

    I think canceling can do some good, but overall I’m not a big fan of cancel culture as I think it’s comprised of people with disingenuous actions in hopes to draw attention to themselves rather assist a movement or change.

    Most of their advertising is not much of a step up from My Pillow Guy. The Unilevers and P&Gs of the world have never knocked down their door.

    A lot of what he’s saying doesn’t make much sense.

    Especially the part about how things Barstool has said in the past gets a freebie/hall pass because “times change.” Dude you’re talking three years ago, not 1965.

    It's relevant in the way that this website being around since 2009 is relevant and if we really dug through the shit on here then I'd be willing to bet a fuck load of posters would be "cancelled" for shit they posted when they were 21. It's relevant in that you are not defined by your past and that people are allowed to say dumb shit and make mistakes. People love to act like they did nothing wrong when the reality is that if everything everyone did in the past was online then everyone would be too busy covering their own asses to cancel anyone. Something something stones something something glass house.

    and the term woke has been co-opted by conservatives to use as an insult against those who care about things.

    You can have a conversation about these things without flippantly throwing around these terms to make yourself feel better.

    Yes, and let's keep the discussion in the more relevant thread. Granted, it's quite obvious relevancy isn't your strong suit.
