Former Mountaineer Pat McAfee Leaves Barstool Sports After ‘Being Disrespected by the Business People in the Building’

Former Mountaineer Pat McAfee Leaves Barstool Sports After ‘Being Disrespected by the Business People in the Building’

Former Mountaineer kicker Pat McAfee has left Barstool Sports and is now one of the hottest free agents in the sports media game.

While he was the punter for the Indianapolis Colts in early 2017, McAfee said his plan was to take over “the bum ass media that’s in sports right now.”

Just a few weeks after making this statement, McAfee left the NFL for Barstool Sports. He said that his profession was wearing down his body and Barstool had already approached him about joining them when he was done with the NFL. From there things moved quickly.

His career in the sports media blossomed quickly. With Barstool he took on podcasts, video and blog posts.

In January 2018 he was added as a part of Barstool Radio on Power 85, which is a Sirius XM channel. Barstool founder Dave Portnoy said on this station the company could do “whatever the fuck we want.” McAfee’s show ran every week day from 10 a.m. to noon.

Unfortunately nothing lasts forever. On Friday McAfee took to Twitter to announce he was leaving Barstool and will be a free agent.

After this was announced Portnoy stepped up and was very accountable for McAfee’s exit.

Nardini stepped up and took a stand-up, accountable approach to McAfee’s exit.

It will be interesting where the former Mountaineer goes next and takes his following with him.
