Yeah it was a weird partnership from the start, especially from ESPN's side. They had to of known they were going to get blowback by doing a show with them and had to of calculated it was "worth the risk" to partner with Barstool to get their demo, so it's weird they are already pulling the plug for stuff that they should've seen coming when they initially started putting this together. But yeah ESPN is just a giant [expletive] of a company and agree they are very much on the downward trend and this whole thing with Barstool from the beginning to now is and was horsefeathering dumb.

They couldn't have possibly handled this any worse. They shouldn't have agreed to include Barstool in the title of the show. The PMT guys are much bigger than Barstool and that's who they were hiring.

Big Cat tweeted at Mooch today and he’s coming on the podcast to discuss getting fired in 11 days.
PFT and Big Cat should leave Barstool. They don’t belong there anymore. I was never really exposed to any of the Barstool horsefeathers before I started listening to PMT. I just saw PFT Commenter was doing a podcast and was curious. They are really almost a parody of the dopey Barstool shtick.
All the other Barstool people seem terrible and not funny. If I was PFT, I’d stuff Portnoy into a pillow case and throw him in the East river.
