    What a fucking disgrace. That’s why you don’t let your frat brothers run your editorial department

    Barstool as much credibility as The Odyssey: zero.

    Why do I envision portnoy’s career lying next to daulerio’s in the media graveyard?

    Greatest smut peddlers our time. Portnoy, Daulerio, Larry Flynt

    This thread inspired me to look up Daulerio, with whom I had several run-ins (runs-in?). He seems largely to have vanished. There was a time when I would have pulled his fucking ears off and shoved them down his throat, but now I mostly feel sorry for him. Talk about a guy who lit an exploding cigar.

    Yet you'll never hear any GMG writers say a bad word about him. Those people are a fucking cult. The only one they've ever ostracized is Clay Travis (deservedly, of course).

    Extremely tight clique is the better word. I can only imagine how annoying it must be to end up at a party where the majority of the attendees use to write for Gawker.

    The other shoe dropped hard on Daulerio. Boy ya just hate to see it.

    I look at the Barstool vs Deadspin beef in the same vein as all those Antifa vs Proud Boys riots. You hope they both lose

    I went to a party at Nick Denton's once. I think I'd been written about by maybe twelve of the people in attendance. Not one of them said a fucking thing to me. I stood in the middle of the room, drank a whiskey, looked at everybody, everybody looked at me, and I left.

    Here's kind of a funny unintended side effect of life. To get the visa I needed last year to work in TV, I needed to provide fifty clips of stories about me. Not by me. Stories in which I was the subject. Trust me, I was reaching. Maybe 25 of those clips came from Gawker and Deadspin. Without their weird obsession, I wouldn't have been able to get my visa, like, eight years later or whatever. You never know how things will shake out.

    That's exactly the kind of bullshit I'm talking about. I'm sorry about your experience. That sounds like my worst nightmare.
