Just curious how many people have started reading/listening to Barstool Sports? I've gotten in to it quite a bit but sometimes question if I should be. It can be pretty immature, which I'm guilty of being at times! It can be really funny too. I think a couple people there are pretty legit, but others don't offer much. I question whether they are creating much or just forwarding on funny stuff on the internet. Thought I'd see if any of you are in to it or strongly against them.

I've only caught Pat McAfee's stuff but it seems like Funny or Die/College Humor but focused on sports.

Yeah, it's kind of like the sports-focused love child of College Humor & The Chive.

Those guys have always rubbed me the wrong way. Too bro-ey.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

Yeah, the few times I've stumbled on their content, like the PFT Commenter on Twitter, I've found it to be funny, but the whole thing about being a "stoolie" is off-putting. The whole "Saturdays are for the Boys" shtick is pretty dumb imho.

I agree with the Bro stuff. That rubs me the wrong way. It's like a gang of frat boys. That said, some of the stuff they put out is pretty good. Big Cat - Dan Katz, is really good I think. He does a great job of walking the line between sports and comedy. He doesn't do too much Bro stuff, just having fun and not taking himself too seriously. I think the guy who started the whole thing is pretty funny on camera. Just naturally one of those people that makes you laugh. So I guess I always get caught in this middle ground where I like some of the stuff they do but don't like the people who get too in to it, if that makes sense.
