Anybody got a rundown of this barstool rappaport thing? I see he called out KFC for cheating on his pregnant wife. But not sure about the rest.

There was some sort of a prize fight and he called out an employee of barstool for using steroids and did his usual smack talk to everyone.

Stolen from Deadspin, but relevant to every Barstool drama ever:

Interactions between Barstool employees, who are stars in their own horsefeathers reality show more than they are writers or bloggers, are always layered in kayfabe

I just signed up for The Athletic. $40 for a year. I am impressed. I can cancel within first 7 days but in the two hours I spent reading, it has far exceeded my expectations.

Garbage. I don't love Goff (mainly because of how little he seems to know/care about baseball) but I liked him...McNeil should be stuck selling cars in NW Indiana.

Wait, is Spiegel out too?

Why is Parkins on by himself right now?

Will it be Spiegel and Bernstein + Parkins and McNeil?

I wouldn't be surprised if they put McNeil with Bernstein. Maybe I will go look for that chicago sports radio message board and see what they are saying.

would they just go back to mac and spiegel and put parkins with bernstein? the latter would be a show i could really get behind, while anything with mcneil i'm not sure i'd even turn on.

mcneil seems to actually hate bernstein (and bernstein clearly doesn't have much respect for him) so i'd be shocked, but i guess i could see them doing it if desperate for ratings.

Haven't Mac and Parkins been doing a show on Sundays? I thought I heard them in the car a couple of times. If so, sounds like that may have been a dry run for a weekday show.

This is what Goff gets for never unblocking me on twitter

But seriously I did like Goff with Bernstein. It wasn't just a cheap knockoff of Boers and Bernstein, it was something different. That said I am interested to see what happens in the afternoons

I had no clue that was going on. Guess that could be it.

Ugh.

I too would love to hear Parkins with Bernstein. The afternoon drive is their bread and butter, and also where it seems when the largest percentage of meatballs call in, that was the only reason I thought they might move McNeil there.

If that board and their sources are correct, they are saying Bernstein and Connor McKnight mid-days and Mac and Parkins afternoons.

ha...i ran into connor mcknight at a wrigleyville bar once (apropos of nothing, he was with some insanely good looking women who i think worked for the loop or some other similar station). i asked him if he thought bernstein was an horsefeathers and he replied in the affirmative.

They are saying Bernstein requested the change to spend more time with his kids.

So does this mean Spiegel is out too?
