Contested deletion[edit]

This article should not be speedily deleted for lack of asserted importance because of its clear and notable prominence in the sport blog arena. It is widely cited in mainstream sports media and generates millions of page view --TheWarOfArt (talk) 22:29, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Franchises needs citation and explanation[edit]

The section on franchises could use an introductory explanation of what a franchise is (e.g., just different webpages within Barstool, or independently owned/operated; separate or shared employees, etc.), along with citations for the content in that section. ––Agyle (talk) 06:10, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Agreed, I haven't been able to find a source outside of a few mentions in the blog posts themselves that accurately describe the "franchises." I am more than ok with a different term being used. TheWarOfArt (talk) 15:23, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Link Partnerships[edit]

In addition to partnering with AOL it looks like Barstool now has link partnerships with Huffington Post among other sites but haven't been able to source it yet. Please add if someone comes across citable information. TheWarOfArt (talk) 14:38, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
