    Its just his way of playing both sides. You can't campaign for Trump as much as he did, and constantly go on Fox and Tucker, and then pretend to be shocked by what happened. He enables the fans of barstool too. He's always tried to say he's moderate. I guess you can believe it if you want

    I saw a clip of a recent interview on the Flagrant podcast(no idea wtf that is) and Portnoy says he researches everything he does and he’s seen no evidence of Tucker Carlson being a “Nazi”. This is at least twice now I’ve seen clips of him doing this.

    Listening to my first ep of Macrodosing (Brian Cox ep) and my lord everyone is dumb but they’re hopefully hamming it up for the bit.

    No, they are all pretty dumb (all have areas where they excel) but it’s a really entertaining show.

    Fact checking this show would be a disaster. Coley was saying once that Randy Moss and Deion sanders raced each other Randy’s first year at FSU when Deion was a Sr. Deion had been gone for 5 years when Randy was on campus.

    I don’t listen to foreplay, but from the content I have seen he seems the most conventional of the group. Would think if he ever left Barstool he could have a gig in a more classical golf/media company.

    I mean he went to Harvard and the same prep school as the Kennedy's, so I think he hit the lottery at birth. Now he can just use his platform to pump his families investment property.

    I think he origianlly got hired as the news guy, because Dave thought he was some kind of genius for giving out USA Today summaries of current events.

    The Barstool Classic was a great move though. He's on his own and bringing in actual revenue. They go for like $1000 a twosome and sell out all of them. I get they need a higher price point to weed out the guys looking to get blackout drunk and flip a cart, but they must be raking it in on these events.

    Good for Riggs. I think it’s pretty evident even as a casual viewer that he grinds really hard on his thing.

    Foreplay is largely trash and the vast majority of their analysis is amateurish or blatant bootlicking at best, but I’ll give Riggs credit for making the most of the opportunity.

    There’s a huge market for that. Most golf media is terrible.

    That’s fair. I mean the vast majority of the “talent” are people simply riding the coattails of the overarching brand and really couldn’t earn a tenth of the viewership if they had to do it elsewhere or alone. On a “vs replacement” basis, I don’t think many of them provide much value. Foreplay guys very much included. And I think that becomes very obvious when you see that they’re not even the guys at the company that give the best golf analysis or make the best golf content. The Spittin Chiclets guys run circles around them in both regards.

    Riggs did create the Barstool Classic, and frankly I think that’s the revenue driver that keeps him around. But I wonder what his and the rest of the crew’s lasting power truly is if they can’t continue coming up with ideas like that.

    Foreplay makes a lot off of merchandise too. Riggs has done a great job. The hate for their golf coverage is pretty ridiculous. Most golfers seem to like them and enjoy associating themselves with them.

    Trent’s breaking 90 series and their fore man scramble stuff is some of the few things I watch from barstool now.

    Riggs has done a great job with the classic and partnering with Peter Millar for merch was the best thing he could do.

    But as far as content goes I agree the podcast is terrible and most of the videos they put out are largely trash considering the player access they are getting. I do think you have to credit Riggs for getting barstool into the golf ecosystem tho which isn’t the easiest thing to do especially considering the stigma of their brand.
    They need to add someone that is great at content and let them run that side. Trent is likable but that isn’t enough

    On a separate note, barstool vs america was really good. Joey and Nick were fantastic throughout

    Whats going on at barstool?

    a blog full of nazis. The founder recently speaking out against Roe v Wade being overturned.

    Why would they do that?

    another top guy speaks out today in favor of gun restrictions.

    what happened the last time this happened?

    their company vehicles are decked out in rainbows for pride month. This comes months after a long-tenured employee supporting his transitioning six year old while garnering support from many coworkers publicly.

    what is going on at barstool?
