Dave Portnoy wannabe.

He isn't wrong though.  The % of daily positive cases from two weeks ago have gone done from 30% to now its hovering around 9-12%.

Unfortunately Italy's old population is getting hit and thus high death figures.  Last I saw the median age of people dying from this is 79 years old.  As cold as it might sound, death is not how you look at this for progress unfortunately. 

Tough to say whether Travis or Portnoy is the bigger asshole. 

There was a woman in TX who made a long Facebook post about coronavirus being a socialist hoax and stated that you don't need hand sanitizer and you don't need social distancing, you just need God and guns. She is now dead from COVID.

Lol I saw that, too. It's sad that she died, but...

Also why don't you like Portnoy? He's been cracking me up during this quarantine, and I don't really pay any attention to him usually.

Portnoy is a tool. The absolute worst kind of human.

Video going around of a lady coming out of church saying that she doesn't believe she'll get CV because she's covered in Jesus's blood. It was a church in Ohio. That's why we're all going to be quarantined with no sports or entertainment for another 2-3 months. Idiots like this. Nice job Ohio!

These people are morons.

I'll use the example of Joe Diffie. I'm sure that guy wasn't filthy rich from his career, but I bet if there was a cure/remedy for this that he likely would've had the financial ability to pay for it (cure). It got him and it's gotten a few other fairly prominent people. If you have the underlying issues, it's likely going to take you out.

All these people are doing is prolonging the issue.

What am I missing with him? Again, I don't think i've watched anything from his or barstool before this quarantine, so not sure what you're referring to

Yup, and all becuase of "their faith"

 

When some religious nutjob says this shit, i'm normally like whatever, believe what you want to believe, just don't let it effect me. Well now that they're effecting me, they can fuck the hell off. Is it really that hard to stay inside? Especially since they can do virtual showings of church. But you know, the church can't collect their $$$ that way...

BTW this came from someplace called right wing watch. That just happens to be where you can find it. There are religious nutjobs on both sides.

304 new cases today. Lowest in 4 days. Hopefully it’s flattened and starting to go back down.

I've always been of the belief that whatever your faith, whether religious or not, you don't need to go into a church to worship. As you said, sounds like a money grab to me.

Misogynistic, cyber bully. Openly mocks sexual harassment. Rips people for hot takes, yet got famous by purposely taking the “dumb” side of arguments — to the point he had 2 guys start a podcast around this premise. So bad ESPN had to fire them for shit they were doing after like 3 weeks after the partnership started (despite tons of media calling for ESPN to stand against Barstool)
 

This is the first article that popped up, but it only scratches the surface. https://www.thedailybeast.com/inside-barstool-sports-culture-of-online-hate-they-treat-sexual-harassment-and-cyberbullying-as-a-game

The worst part is he isn’t the worst. It’s the rest of his employees that he stands behind. I think it’s the DC guy who is the worst.

He’s pretty funny though. As are Big Cat and PFT. If you have kids, their Podfathers podcast is pretty good too.

Yeah I mean if you’re saying he’s an asshole, then I would say about 97% of media or podcast type people who are super famous are. Don’t really care about that much. He’s been cracking me up these last few weeks. He was getting traders soooo mad, they were freaking out. Pretty funny

Only? Lol no. But it is one of the many things wrong with him.

Laley outlined it all, but I don't find misogyny or sexual harassment funny at all. I would not expect many on this website to care about that, so I'm not surprised he has fans here. 🤷🏼‍♀️

They’re just words. I read laley’s article. If you want to get offended over words than by all means, but I’m sure we could look back at your words and find something wrong that you’ve said. Everyone gets so damn butthurt these days over people saying things that hurt their feelz.

I'm not walking around crying because of some words a man on the internet said. I think he's a shitty person, so I'm not going to consume his content. It's really that simple.

With him it’s not just words. Makes employees sign an NDA before working for them about the fact they will be exposed to sexual harassment, racial jokes, etc. 

I think some of his bits are funny, but he’s just scum, so I try to avoid anything Barstool I can. His employees can’t unionize because he threatened to fire them all (thank God department of labor stepped in).

I also despise Michael Rappaport, so the fact I sided with him in his lawsuit against Barstool is wild. 
 

I’m not sure why he is the way he is. I kinda get it starting out, since his target audience was 18-25 males. But once he made it, he should’ve fixed his image, except it wasn’t an act. And that’s the problem. He is a creative mind who doesn’t need to be a POS to anyone and everyone, but that’s the route he has taken.
