EvanTH is right though? It's creepy and inappropriate but like using the correct language is important and the dude isn't an actual pedophile.

Plus focusing on the age thing seems to be missing a broader point which is that even if Chloe Kim was 18 it would still be gross to view her accomplishments through the lens of 'I want to gently caress her'

The worst part is he apologizes on Twitter to her and tags her on it. Odds are she's never heard about these guys and now sees her feed and it's some guy apologizing for saying he wanted to beat off to her.

Let's agree that it's creepy as gently caress, Barstool is a giant pile of poo poo, and move the gently caress on. Any more splitting of hairs is going to result in enforced timeouts.

Anyways, to change it up, lots of non-sport outlets are starting to realize that NBC was pretty scummy in putting Mike Tirico and Shaun White together and then not addressing their respective #metoo moments.

DirecTV is raising prices on NFL Sunday Ticket

quote:

Since 2016, the cost of NFL Sunday Ticket has increased by 14 percent, despite lower ratings for the NFL during that period.

The basic package does not include the Red Zone Channel nor the Fantasy Zone Channel, which come at a higher cost. To get those channels, you have to subscribe Sunday Ticket Max, which totaled a whopping $377.94 last season. For 2018, Sunday Ticket Max will increase by $18.00 to $395.95.

So, $400 to watch "all" 256 games. And that doesn't even count the cost of DirecTV on top of that.

Meanwhile, $116 to watch "all" 2,430 Major League Baseball games. No additional costs required.

I find it hilarious how ahead of the curve MLB is on streaming. Like, a sport known for being mired in the past is the first one with the streaming service. Also, they do the streaming for the NHL.

Technically not anymore. MLB Advanced Media spun off all of its non-baseball streaming to a separate company called BAMTech. This company was majority owned by MLBAM with minority stakeholders NHL and Disney. Disney then purchased enough shares to now own 75%, with MLBAM owning 15% and the NHL owning 9%.

For Disney, this brought ESPN streaming in-house, with a standalone ESPN streaming service coming soon. And it will be the basis for the Disney streaming service that's coming next year and will stream all Disney, Star Wars, and Marvel movies and TV shows.

BAMTech is a dumb name.

Isn't Sunday Ticket just their bargaining chip with subscribers? Like they'll give it to you for free if you sign a 2-year contract?

Which worked in a day and age where it seemed like everyone had some form of cable or satellite. If youíre gonna pay anyways, why not pay DirecTV? But nowadays, it makes absolutely no sense. I donít want cable or satellite but I have to sign up for it AND pay $400 just to watch your increasingly lovely product? Nah, Iíll just not watch.
