    The Big LeadEarlier today, sports media personality Elika Sadeghi posted the following contract from Barstool Sports, which she says offered her a two-year deal, but she refused to sign:

    Reached for comment about this screengrab and ensuing thread (which we will publish in full below), Barstool founder Dave Portnoy told The Big Lead, “I thought it was unfair. I guess I wasn’t overly surprised based on our interactions. I think she’s somebody who wants to be part of a bigger narrative that’s going on right now and she used us as a scapegoat for it.”

    “I think that’s very standard, boilerplate language [in the contract],” he continued. “I ran Barstool for 10 years without contracts. When Chernin acquired us, we obviously became more professional. They are an entertainment company familiar with writing rooms and comedy shows and that’s boilerplate, standard language so people cannot sue for offensive jokes, whether they be about gender, sex, religion, whatever — we do it all at Barstool, and we needed to protect ourselves.”

    Barstool CEO Erika Nardini added, “I think Dave captured it. This clause in our contract has to do with the nature of our content. We have a broad employment agreement which covers harassment, office environment, and treatment in the workplace. And, what Elika is referring to is a clause in our contract which pertains to the nature of our content. We are a comedy brand and we make content for 18-34 year old men. Some of that content is risque in nature, and this clause covers that.”

    Added Portnoy: “Again, written by lawyers in LA, and when Elika met with us she said she didn’t have any sort of vibe this was an issue but it was more of a moral thing and she actually said she was afraid to sign with us because she was afraid someone else would leak it. It turns out she was leaking it. To be honest, I think she was waiting for the right moment to do so.”

    Reprinted below is the full tweet thread from Sadeghi:

    I wasn’t going to share this, but recent events have made me realize how important it can be. Sorry, but I’m about to clog your timeline… I was offered a full time, 2 year deal over the summer. It would’ve been fun and it would’ve paid well. No brainer, right? They wanted me to sign this. I refused, for multiple reasons. I ultimately decided I didn’t want it, even if I was exempt from signing this.

    This is not ok. And if you’ve never worked in media, know that it isn’t normal. I’ve never seen anything like it. Neither have most people. The crazy thing is, it’s probably not even enforceable. It’s likely meant to make people feel like they can’t speak up if something happens. That’s how things like this happen. Not always through contracts, but through a variety of ways in which people feel powerless to speak up.

    I decided to walk, even if they removed it. How could I work for them, knowing it exists? But would I have walked, if I needed the money? Would I have if I didn’t have a completely separate career path that I love? I’d like to think so, but who knows. I’m lucky-not everyone is. I’ve built (privilege has helped) a safety net that allows me to be patient, and principled, about what I do. Not everyone gets to have that.

    Whether it’s explicitly stated in contracts or not, too often, people are made to feel like they can’t speak up about the inexcusable. I made clear why I was walking, that this was offensive. I hope they’ve removed it, but I doubt it, since they didn’t seem to believe me. I haven’t been sexually harassed at work in years. But I remember the paralysis that accompanies it when you don’t think anyone would care.

    When you don’t know what would happen to your job. When you don’t know if you would be able to get another, if you’re a whistle blower. I hope by having more conversations about these things, others will eventually not feel that paralysis. Because they know they’re not alone. Because they know we care. Because their careers are safe, regardless of inexcusable things that are not their fault. Because they did the right thing.

    Oh look, a virtue signaling, look-at-me narcissist trying to use the Harvey Weinstein scandal to build her personal brand. Never thought I’d see the day.

    This is Elika Sadeghi (on the right in first picture):

    She’s your run of the mill basic white chick who got a job in sports broadcasting largely because she’s pleasant on the eyes. That’s not sexist. It’s a fact. It’s actually the opposite of sexist to expect that women who ARE NOT good looking should be hired for jobs like this. But you never, ever see it. Almost every chick on TV in sports broadcasting has to be hot. If you participate in that, you don’t get to whine about sexism.

    Elika actually gained a lot of her bootleg Twitter fame from posing at a pool party with Johnny Manziel, a guy she was supposed to be objectively and professionally covering:

    But the fact is that Johnny Football was extremely controversial and his off the field bullshit has turned him into one of the greatest first round busts in NFL history. However, since she’s the latest hot chick in a bathing suit who Manziel posed with, she had his back 100 emoji style:

    In other words, she can’t be objective with the people she covers because she’s an immature 20 something.

    If you go through her Twitter you see that she’s a SJW extraordinaire:

    Anyway, you know how we feel about Barstool Sports here. The same way most people who have followed them since their inception feel – they used to edgy and awesome, but now they’ve taken a hard SJW turn to the left and their content just isn’t worth clicking on anymore. Sad.

    That’s why they’re trying to sign chicks like this. We would never, ever, ever think about hiring anyone who has a stick up their ass like this, male or female. Barstool did, because their SJW corporate overlords told them to. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for hiring females. The majority of our staff is female. But you have to actually be funny and never, ever utter SJW buzzwords unless you’re mocking them.

    South Shore Turtlegirl is funny and because she’s anonymous and no one knows what she looks like she’s judged based on the quality of her work. Elika Sadeghi isn’t funny, but because you can see what she looks like it doesn’t matter what the quality of her work is.

    Oh, and she knew EXACTLY what she was getting into before being offered this job. She’s been on the Barstool rundown before:

    And as you can see she brings absolutely nothing to the table. She’s just there so Erika Nardini can tell people that Barstool isn’t just for the bros anymore. Even though it is.

    So instead of just having nothing to do with a company that has gotten to where they are by posting half naked pictures of hot chicks from Salem State, she chose to affiliate herself with them and wait for them to offer her a contract, JUST so she could reject them with a virtue signaling set of tweets. Just look at some of these:

    Translation – “I could’ve made $50,000 a year but I’m so virtuous that I couldn’t allow myself to sell out like that. Someone give me a an organic oatmeal cookie.”

    This is a standard contract that the Chernin Group’s lawyers came up with. Topics covered on Barstool are often about sex and race. And since the merger they’ve been pretty tepid and non-controversial. But the fact of the matter is that when you’re talking about stuff like this the possibility exists that an employee could say something that she might construe as sexist. This is how the company covers its ass.

    Yea, no shit it’s not normal. It’s Barstool fucking Sports. You knew EXACTLY what you were signing up for you self-serving narcissistic attention whore.

    Or it’s meant to weed out the assholes. Like you.

    Obviously what she’s doing now is trying to capitalize on Harvey Weinstein and make herself a victim too. Because it’s not easy to victimize yourself if you’re a basic white chick like this, so you have to seize the opportunity when it arises. Keep in mind, Harvey Weinstein made women watch as he masturbated into a plant. Elika was asked to sign a contract that said she wouldn’t whine about Jew jokes.

    So virtuous…..

    Yup, she just checked her own privilege. The fact that this idiot was offered a job at Barstool Sports in the first place tells you just how much of a joke Barstool has become.

    Oh shut the fuck up. You could’ve just not signed the contract, but then you’d miss out on your opportunity to become the feminist de jour. She’s trying to turn herself into the Jemele Hill of basic white chicks and rally an army of SJWs behind her. And in turn this builds her brand. I had no idea who she was before this. Now I do, and so do you. It worked. El Prez got played.

    Portnoy, who has nothing to do with the contract itself and is now a minority owner, responded with a video.

    Back in the day he would’ve murdered this chick. But that was a tepid, defensive response. You gotta go on the offensive there. This chick is worse than Hurricane Bob. She just tried to drag your company which you built from scratch through the mud by equating it to Harvey Weinstein. She used you to build herself. And instead of just MURDERING her you said this:

    “All the sexual harassment stuff like that, people always throw arrows and throw stones at us no matter what. We haven’t done shit! Leave us out of it! What is it, Frankie, ‘Keep my name off your lips’? Hey Elika, keep our name off your lips. We treated you with nothing but respect and friggin’ dignity. We offered you a job. And this is how you say thank you, with this garbage? To try and make yourself the center of a story and get people to talk about you? Get out of here! It’s friggin’ garbage. It’s rubbish, and it’s garbage, and I won’t stand for it.”

    C- rant at best. You don’t tell a chick like this who just tried to burn your company to the ground to “keep our name off your lips.” Because she’s not going to. She’s going to continue to use you in order to build herself up. Instead you just destroy her. She declared war on you and you’re fighting like the French. You point out the fact that she’s only where she is right now BECAUSE of sexism. It’s because FS1 and every other media outlet that’s hired her has done so because she looks good in a bathing suit.

    Anyway, this is what Barstool gets for selling out. When you associate with people like this they burn you. Lesson learned.

      men like bad bitches.. enjoy your bad bitches but always beware their endgame :p

    2. Nai


      Meh, she’s basic. And on TV there are a lot hotter women. She’d be considered cute next to them. Where do you think she will end up now? ESPN? also, what kind of shit ton of money is she sitting on to imply that her privelige enables her to turn down jobs? Lol

      1. chrissy


        agreed, i meant bad as in feisty not stunning

    3. Independent Thinker


      In the broadcasting business, women are hired for their looks and for their on-air personality. They are not hired for their brains or for their knowledge of the news which they are covering. Better qualified women are overlooked simply because they don’t have the looks. While this may sound sexist, it is a fact.

      Then when they land the job which they got simply because of their looks, they complain when they get taken off the air for gaining weight after they decide to have a bunch of kids.

      This girl isn’t all that hot. Just average.

      1. Stunt Penis


        Sex sells. Learned it first day of Marketing 101, Freshman undergraduate class.

    4. Troubled Nostrils


      Which “privilege” is she checking? Is it her privilege as a white chick, or her privilege as a good-looking woman? There’s no greater privilege in the history of humanity than that of a hot woman.

    5. Lee


      She is basic ugly not sure why they would have offered her a job anyway clearly she thinks she is hotter than she is – I don’t CA hat she knows about college football her attitude in video sucked

    6. Bub


      BuzzFeed, HuffPost, Comso, too many others to list no doubt have nearly identical versions of the same clause.

    7. Sexual Chocolate


      Portnose could’v eviscerated her, but he chose the C- rant in the hopes it would just go away and not give her more of the attention she’s craving. It’s the prudent play.

      Barstool’s content is certainly going down the toilet. That’s why you’re seeing more Prez, Big Cat, KFC blogs recently. They know there are issues. Riggs is a total bitch. Only blogs worthwhile are anything by Carrabis, the Friday Confessions, and B&C (which they are eliminating slowly).

    8. Soylentblue


      All “men are evil” until the hunky guy shows up

    9. Alfred ItchCock


      Why is this chick named after a shitty Toyota sports car?

    10. Adam


      I do miss the old barstool, but this is a guy who took a business hand delivering newspapers in a used Astro van into a multi-million dollar digital company and became a multi-millionaire himself doing it. Started with nothing. I respect that.

      I know you like to keep it 100 over here at TB Sports, but I’m pretty sure if you had an offer on the table to sell 51% of TB Sports and be able to monetarily take care of your family for the rest of their lives, worry free, you’d sign that too.

      1. Al


        No dude, you just got more mature and wiser. Barstool brand of humor doesn’t work on you anymore.

    11. Brian


      Two things.
      Barstool used to be awesome and now sucks balls
      This girl is a cunt

    12. Not wearing a flat brimmed bulls hat


      i like careerist cunts

    13. RickinGreenHarbor


      All due respect, this is a “hot chick”? Looks more like a burka model.

    14. Biggieman


      Barstool is left-leaning and favors SJWs? Their staff is 99% white male. All of their big personalities are white males. Their target audience is white college kids. Their social media is full of posts celebrating white people behaving like neanderthals. Where is the evidence that they promote a liberal agenda?

    15. Billy G


      TBS sounds so salty… it’s like your begging for el portnoy to mention you

    16. Truff Hurts


      Body by Fisher…..legs by Steinway…..

    17. wabbitt


      Total obnoxious, virtue signalling pain in the ass.

      Would still tongue fuck her barking starfish after she ran a marathon.
