ESPN cancels 'Barstool Van Talk' with PFT Commenter and Big Cat

Barstool Sports' show on ESPN only lasts one episode

Apart from this decision, we appreciate the efforts of Big Cat [aka Dan Katz] and PFT Commenter.

"Although we are heartbroken, Pardon My Take will continue to get bigger and stronger every single day", the personalities said.

It surely would have made it more hard for ESPN to take moral stances against its own personalities when working with a company like Barstool that posts items such as the "Smokeshow of the Day" featuring women in bathing suits, or "Grading the Newest Sex Scandal Teacher" in which a writer evaluates pictures of women who have sex with minor students and assigns grades to their looks. Once the test was over, she says an ESPN employee coerced her into joining him at a strip club, where her male colleagues were receiving lap dances.

'Effective immediately, I am cancelling Barstool Van Talk. Barstool Sports, one of ESPN's latest bedfellows, is a sports site that is known curating admittedly raunchy content to a young, millennial audience, a demographic that the Mothership was certainly hoping to capitalize on in terms of advertising dollars. The show was adapted from a popular Barstool podcast called Pardon My Take.

In times like these, we remember what a great philosopher once said: Success isn't owned, it's leased.

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson, on the other hand, said that he too had opted to bat first had he won the toss. The best part about the New Zealand run-chase was that they achieved the target without taking undue risks.

ESPN announced Monday afternoon it has canceled the controversial show Barstool Van Talk after just one episode. Portnoy also addressed the controversy in an "emergency press conference" livestreamed on Periscope and posted to Twitter. "Fostering a professional and respectful workplace is a top priority for ESPN and we always encourage people to report any issues".

But before the show even aired, ESPN was criticized for partnering with an outfit that has been accused of trafficking in racist and misogynistic humor. "She waited for three years to drop revenge on our heads the night before and she got accomplished what she wanted to get accomplished".

"From what we heard, there was a mini uprising", he said. Then took me into the office for some weird line of questioning.

The TV personality said she took a auto service to a meeting with ESPN personnel but she found out after the meeting her ride home had been canceled. They put Hill on the bench but Barstool Sports has absolutely no filter or no hesitation when it comes to saying anything and everything and they thought that this was going to fly?
