    All I’ve learned ITT is that a handful of the barstool die hards are incapable of bashing, hell even questioning/doubting, Dave.

    Probably Republicans then if they're incapable of criticizing someone so flawed

    What’s the difference between cancel culture and let’s say, not buying goods and services from a company you don’t like?

    The public grandstanding, which is generally done by people who have similar skeletons in their own closets.

    so people are grandstanding when they hear Dave say “when I hear Arab I think terrorist”?

    Jeff Lowe was bought as part of the movie podcast. Definitely not Mr. Cat's call.

    I think more accurately you could say he picks cool friends at work.

    The reaction toward those people will likely depend on who is voicing the displeasure. If it’s someone who has personally been wronged by the quote, then I don’t think anyone has a problem with it. If it’s coming from someone who is a long time competitor of the offending party who has made similar comments of their own in the past, it’s likely going to get a different reception from people.

    I have no problem with people Dave offended calling him out for it. Or a problem with not consuming Dave - or any Barstool - content moving forward. I, myself have stopped consuming Dave content and have always found the Go Pres Go crowd to be incredibly cringeworthy. But if the same guy from Deadspin who has been trying to cancel Barstool forever is going to pretend to care about this issue just to selfishly help themselves, then that feels disingenuous. And unfortunately, a lot of cancel culture does come with major conflicts of interest.

    Where are you seeing this? Pretty sure most of the people itt have said that Dave fucked up in 2016 and isn't doing a good job of correcting it now. What thread are you reading?

    Yeah I mean there’s no defending Dave himself in this situation. Big Cat and KFC have actually made him look like an even bigger fool considering how thoughtful their responses were.

    Sure, but the fact that he's not reflective or repentant is the problem. That may gain him some viewers/supporters, but they're not the kind that are going to help the company do anything beyond becoming a more profitable Clay Travis site.

    Did you not come in here yesterday to claim that he has grown/changed? That sure seemed like a defense of him/his process.

    Where did I do that? You're not bashing barstool rn. You're bashing everyone itt even though we've all pretty much agreed Dave is being a POS. You're accusing all of us of doing something that virtually none of us have done.

    Your point isn't based on reality. You came in here with the preconceived notion that we're all chud stoolies who refuse to acknowledge anything problematic with barstool. That wasn't the actual case, but you found one guy in the whole thread that fit your narrative and then just ran with it. Now you seem confused as to why you're being called out for that.

    No I'm not confused that die hards are reluctant to realize their favorite people suck and stop giving them money(clicks). Have a good day.

    Said his Kaep statement, saying the n-word, and etc were all wrong and they don’t condone it. Tyler said he was tired of defending Dave actions as representative of the Barstool and the employees. Coley said he doesn’t believe Dave is racist but Tyler said if it keeps coming up, then you have to call it what it is. Said that they know that the company isn’t perfect but Dave’s and some of the Dana’s views should not define some of the amazing people and content that they produce.

    My position is that Dave has said some fucked up stuff. And that people expecting him to apologize or for him to get canceled are going to be disappointed because it isn’t happening

    little by little ive stopped watching dave’s content. i got kinda bored of the unboxing after a few weeks, and the day trader stuff IMO is only funny if you care about dave. his clay travis heel turn might be fueling this, he’s really got nothing to offer me without live sports.

    the greatness of the AVN awards red carpet seems so distant now.
