What a worthless asshole.

The only people more pathetic are his cheerleaders in the comments.

Why is Rafi so interested in the employees at barstool sports?

Also, firing someone for unionizing or even inquiring about unionization should be illegal

Both those tweets are in violation of Federal Labor laws. I'm sure the Trump administration will be on this in 3...2...1...

Not surprised. Garbage content that perpetuates pretty much everything ‘toxic masculjnity’ associated with sports fandom.

Imagine thinking "Barstool Sports" is a good name and standing by it.
it's a pretty good name though? Sports bars are very popular and they're trying to give the vibe of a dive-y sports bar. There's plenty to criticize them for, but this feels like a "look at that bitch eating crackers" complaint

It's literally a zero effort name. It would be like if I opened a restaurant called "Plates, Knives and Forks". Zero creativity.

of all things you are gonna say the name is shit. The name means nothing, they are one of the biggest/most recognizable brands out there right now in sports.

But yeh, if you follow anything Portnoy does it becomes pretty clear he is a huge asshole.

Tried to post a tweet they made a few days ago rating the attractiveness of a pedophile, but I don't see it showing up.

F**k Barstool sports! I saw them on an episode of Real Sports and they are the ultimate cesspool of sports fandom and journalism. Though these tweets don’t surprise me.

I struggle with barstool being pretty problematic and their fans being huge shitbirds....


and their ability to make me laugh consistently. Initially I thought Dave was kidding but this was kinda yikes. I do wonder what their work culture is like since it always looks like everyone is living the dream there.

If you try to prevent abuse by a maniacal boss and being fired without good reason I’ll abuse my powers and fire you without good reason!

Yeah, none of their employees are looking to unionize. Portnoy knows this, hense why he can get away with a tweet like that.

Just going to quote myself from some time ago.
Next generation sports media being in the stranglehold of the Masshole Industrial Complex is a sad, sad thing.

What a terrible millennium this has been. Sports were better when all Boston had to fall back on was a dozen championships from a ten team NBA that the city hated and didn't value anyway because the star was black.
America's way worse off with the Masshole contagion escaping its provincial borders in a part of the country no one but its own residents gave a fuck about and infecting the whole damn country.

I mean, it's apparent if you look at his history that he's just having a laugh winding people up. But he is an asshole.
