In Thursday’s episode of Barstool Sports’ Token CEO podcast, host and Barstool Sports CEO Erika Nardini gave a rundown of all the upcoming news, events, and projects that are related to football for Barstool Sports.

“We are going to be live in more states than ever before with the Barstool Sportsbook, so were launching four plus eight in August and September,” Nardini said to begin her preview.

Second, we have the Arizona Bowl coming up at the end of year, and we will be very, very interested and have a vested interest in the MAC and the Mountain West. Third is we have added a bunch of new shows and we’ve added a bunch of awesome personalities, including Megan Making Money and Kelly in Vegas

We also have Hank Lockwood’s fantasy football podcasts, which he does with Rone (Adam Ferrone). We have Unnecessary Roughness; which is where Brandon Walker and Kayce Smith talk about football, and essentially argue with one another every week.

We’ve got Pick Em and there’s lot of drama around Pick Em. It is one of the oldest gambling shows that we’ve got at Barstool Sports. It’s Dave (Portnoy), Dan (Katz), and Rico Bosco. We’ve got Picks Central, which is our daily gambling show hosted by Big Cat and Brandon Walker.

We’ve got Sports Advisors, which is hands down my favorite show here. We’ve got Bussin with the Boys, with Will Compton and Taylor Lewan. We’ve got the College Football Show, we’ve got the Pro Football Show with Deion Sanders, and then the Pro Football Show After Show.

Erika Nardini, Token ceo 8/12/2021

Nardini would wrap up all the upcoming football content by saying, “Then of course we’ve got all of our podcasts leading with Pardon My Take, which is arguably one of the funniest, strongest, and most beloved podcasts of all time. So, that’s what’s happening in football around here so anyone who’s listening to this can count their blessings that there’s only two more weeks until football starts”.

It can be rest assured that after listening to Thursday’s episode of Token CEO, that there will be an abundance of Barstool Sports football content to consume in the Fall.

John Skipper: Media Has Not Treated Adam Silver Like He’s Teflon

“I don’t think anyone has hesitated to criticize him when he has done things that are controversial or difficult. Certainly, our friends at FOX News have not provided him with a Teflon coating.”

Dan Le Batard hosted an interesting conversation on his Thursday show examining the performance of NBA commissioner Adam Silver during the press conference in which he announced the suspension of Suns owner Robert Sarver. David Samson and John Skipper joined Le Batard in the discussion.

Samson, former president of Major League Baseball’s Miami Marlins, said of Silver “it’s amazing the level of Teflon he’s had, and I don’t know that it’s deserved in any way.” He added that the NBA commissioner’s performance was “not very well workshopped” when addressing the media.

John Skipper, co-founder of Meadowlark Media, acknowledged that the performance was not strong. He said that it was clear that Adam Silver was frustrated by the limitations his job put on what he could do about someone behaving in a way that he did not think was appropriate for the NBA. He did pushback on the idea that Silver had been immune from criticism.

“I’m not sure that I accept that he’s Teflon-like,” Skipper said. “He’s actually made most of the right decisions and done most of the right things and he’s gotten credit for that. I don’t think anyone has hesitated to criticize him when he has done things that are controversial or difficult. Certainly, our friends at FOX News have not provided him with a Teflon coating.”

Samson smiled during the answer, which Skipper addressed by acknowledging that Samson knows that Skipper is friends with Adam Silver. The Meadowlark boss called himself an “apologist” for Silver, but added

“I mostly think he’s done a fabulous job. If you want to hold up what commissioner has done most of the right things in the last seven or eight years, he’s not Teflon-coated, but he has a tremendous track record, which I think deserves our support.”

Chris Long Tells Jim Rome He’s Gambled on Games to Keep Him Interested For His Podcast

“So you’re like alright I need to do my job tonight, and I’m tired I want to go to bed, but maybe I’ll just throw a couple hundred bucks on the Jaguars,” Long said. “And now I’m invested…”

Placing bets on NFL games adds a whole other layer to the NFL viewing experience, and Super Bowl champion Chris Long understands that.

Long, who is not that far removed from his playing days in the league, was a guest on The Jim Rome Podcast, and said he initially considered gambling on football as something to compete at after retiring.

But now that he’s had some time to better learn the ins and outs of wagering, he’s become wiser and better informed. It’s helped him when talking about gambling on his own podcast, Green Light with Chris Long.

“I want to be responsible and give out good picks,” Long said. “I don’t want to just throw stuff out there because I’m getting paid by a casino. I’m really interested in the artform of gambling if that makes any sense.”

Long added that having that wagering itch definitely keeps him enthralled in watching football all day like a lot of other NFL fans, even those games people generally think won’t be that good competitively ahead of time.

He said it’s definitely helped with his show.

“I’m not even gonna lie, dude, sometimes you get burned out by football, right? I played it for a long time, now I’m covering it. So you’re like alright I need to do my job tonight, and I’m tired I want to go to bed, but maybe I’ll just throw a couple hundred bucks on the Jaguars,” Long said. “And now I’m invested and I can do my job more effectively because I’m gonna be glued to the TV. So like in a weird way it’s held me a little bit more accountable when it comes to staying on my game.”
