    I couldn't even force myself to watch that video long enough to hear the stupid comments.

    It's too bad she had to leave Fox before she got a Gronk.

    That's the most amateurish thing I've watched in a while. Well, the five minutes I watched of it was. Bunch of clowns sitting on a couch spewing garbage.

    Don't disagree with her saying Kevin Love is a "diva," but she was pushed for an explanation and couldn't give one. Sounds more like a hot take than actual analysis.

    How can people be so dumb to make such statements? Even if you genuinely are racist, only an idiot goes out there and publicly broadcasts it. Despite her racist persona, she is kinda hot.

    She's an idiot, and Facebook Live is stupid and amateurish.

    Yeah, I totally agree. It looked like three bafoons and a hot chick sitting around scratching their belly buttons in their pajamas as far as I was concerned. They could have at least tried to look and act professional. For some reason, I suppose they think they are appealing to the masses of regular Joes and Janes on Facebook by dressing down and acting like themselves when the camera is off except that the camera is actually on. Comes across as lazy, unprofessional and sophomoric.

    Well, that does describe Barstool Sports perfectly

    Everyone around here is getting on the Facebook Live bandwagon. Of course, just something else for the worker bees to do without you being able to get revenue out of it. Anyway, I think one or two of the TV stations has a semiprofessional setup with it (some sort of stabilizer for the phone if not a tripod, professional spacing so the speakers aren't right up against the phone, etc.). Everyone else treats it as a video selfie or just for inane babbling over a crowd shot. No thanks.

    Emily certainly knew her audience. Barstool Sports caters to knuckle-draggers and aspiring drink-spikers.
