The Olympics are poo poo. No other country does that tape delay bullshit or assumes that unless someone from YOUR country has a shot at a medal, you don't care. Their excuse is "it gets ratings" but they've never tried it any other way so how do they know?

Let's be honest that's because for almost every other country it would mean showing about 10 events. Also, I've watched the Olympics in China before and they do the exact same poo poo. Hope you enjoy weightlifting badminton and table tennis.

Plus NBC does end up showing a lot of events that Americans have no shot of medaling in, it's just usually shown live. For example, badminton, table tennis, and women's archery among others all got a decent amount of air time.

I watch Game of Thrones and like Andy Greenwald/Chris Ryan but I had zero interest in watching After the Thrones. Just seemed like a terrible idea for a show to air the next day when all of the analysis/interesting poo poo is posted on Reddit in 15 minutes.

I've also yet to understand why barstool sports is a thing and why they've gained in popularity. Come to think of it? I've yet to understand why boston dominates in terms of bringing so many sports talks types to life.

I assume there are others like me who subscribe to Pardon My Take but have never been the Barstool Sports website

She's an individual citizen. She didn't make any of these statements during ESPN airtime. She's entitled to her beliefs and the ability to express them.

She (and probably all of us that work for any large company) had a social media clause in her employment contract that restricts what she can say on social media to avoid situations like this.

That said, it's outrageous that the White House Press Secretary would advocate for the firing of someone just because they criticized the President.

I haven't ever watched her. Why do we like Katie Nolan?

Because of poo poo like this:

quote:

ESPN said Wednesday it had hired Katie Nolan, the popular host of Fox Sports 1’s “Garbage Time,” but did not offer details on her exact assignment. “She will have a prominent digital presence while also making appearances across ESPN studio programming. Announcements regarding her specific assignments are forthcoming,” the network said in a statement.

Nolan said: “I could not be more excited to have a prominent digital presence while also making appearances across ESPN studio programming. When I was a little girl, I always dreamed that one day announcements regarding my specific assignments would be forthcoming.”

That would be pretty lovely of ESPN since they don't seem to have any beef with PFT and Big Dog. There's a difference between not wanting to be in business with Barstool and not letting any of your employees even talk to them.

ESPN’s stance seems to be ‘we don’t want to be associated with Barstool’. Employees showing up on a Barstool podcast would seem to go against that

Bill Simmons hasn't written anything good in years and part of me thinks the only reason I ever read his stuff was because I didn't know any better. Drew Magary is consistently entertaining and writes the best skin-deep weekly NFL preview.

That said Grantland/The Ringer are both great and Simmons is employing/has employed some great writers. I love the Ringer NFL Show podcast, I'll listen to anything that Chris Ryan is in, and somehow listening to David Shoemaker and Bryan Curtis talk is incredibly soothing.

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'

Also Pizza Hut just jumped on the sponsorship opportunity and the corporate speak from NFL HQ is tremendous:

quote:

"The NFL and pizza appeal to the same demographic, which is everyone," said Renie Anderson, the NFL's senior vice president of partnership and sponsorship management. "Fans watch our game and they do it around a pizza box. That's why it's one of the most important categories in sports sponsorship."

“With a focus on family, friends and fun, Pizza Hut has the creativity we are looking for in a partner and we look forward to working together with them to make the at-home NFL experience more exciting than ever for our fans,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in prepared remarks.
