This is a fascinating story. Barstool has hated ESPN for years. Barstool gets bought by the Chernin group, moves to NYC and a year later they have a show on ESPN2. Some of the ESPN staff Barstool has gone after over the years are not too happy about it.

ESPN's Sam Ponder calls out sexist history of network's new partner, Barstool Sports

The most interesting part for me is the fact that Barstool is now on ESPN. Seems like a sellout move but I guess that's what ya gotta do when you literally sell your company to a bigger media group.
