    Plunkett was twice the QB

    Come on, you have to admit the idea of Portnoy/PFC going into Super Bowl events with fake credentials and moustaches is hilarious.

    Portnoy got thrown out of the game, too. It is pretty funny how crazy Barstool drives the league.

    Kaepernick should be a more serious threat to their popularity, but they care more about this loopiness

    Saw this last night, and it served as a good daily reminder that the site is run by fuckwads.

    I know, I know ... it's Deadspin and Drew, but ...

    In a perfect world, this kind of aggro shit would get Barstool kicked off of Twitter and would clue other media outlets in, at long last, to the fact that the company is shit and that Barstool’s content—from their sub-Tucker Max postings to their raft of podcasts that exist to supplant Beefer & The Squelch as the go-to sports talk barf-fest for meatheads all around the nation—is the chlamydia of the internet.

    And that Deadspin reminded me, I discovered a couple of weeks ago most of the big high schools around here have Barstool Twitter accounts. Probably just kids copying what they see from the colleges, but it's damn icky.

    Deadspin is the wrong messenger and always will be. They're the place that employed Daulerio and Greg Howard, Magary's former boss and colleague. I'm no saint, but I'd have to bathe with a soul brush every morning if AJ Daulerio had been my boss.

    And Drew, JFC, he was a founder of Kissing Suzy Kolber -- a blog whose very title is predicated on the joke of unwanted male attention.

    Deadspin has definitely shifted its tenor in recent years, but they were still fertilized in crap. Don't get me wrong, I like Magary and I think he's funny. I also think a lot of what Barstool does is funny. Deadspin flinging shit at them is too rich by half.
