“Sunday morning, the Twitter account for 21st And Prime sent out a “coming soon” teaser that included a picture of Goodell, signaling an appearance for the commissioner on one of Barstool’s newest podcasts.”

Few things mesh worse than Barstool Sports and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, but the foes now have a mutual friend in Deion Sanders. 

Sanders joined Bartsool Sports just over a month ago after leaving NFL Network and he’s nearing the launch of his new podcast 21stAnd Prime with Jamie Dukes. How long Sanders will last at Barstool is certainly up for debate as the former two-sport star is expected to become the head football coach at Jackson State. But no matter how short lived his stay is at Barstool, Sanders won’t leave before delivering an interview with the NFL commissioner. 

Sunday morning, the Twitter account for 21st And Prime sent out a “coming soon” teaser that included a picture of Goodell, signaling an appearance for the commissioner on one of Barstool’s newest podcasts. 

Goodell’s dismay for the brand is so strong that he even declined a $250,000 charity donation from Barstool founder Dave Portnoy in exchange for the commissioner needing to watch a football game with him. Citing Portnoy’s encounters with NFL security, which includes being arrested at their headquarters in 2015, trespassing in ‘16 and falsifying credentials to enter Super Bowl LIII Media Night in ’19, the league declined his quarter-million dollar charity bid. 

Barstool does a great job of taking a hands-off approach when letting their employees create content, but hopefully Sanders and Dukes broached the topic of Goodell’s history with Portnoy at least once.

A new direct-to-consumer product from the minds at Barstool Sports has hit store shelves – coffee. Stella Blue Coffee is a new brand launched by Pardon My Take co-host and Barstool Sports star Dan “Big Cat” Katz.

The name was inspired by Big Cat’s love of coffee and his love for his recue dog Stella.

Barstool conducted a recent fan survey, and 80% of respondents said they drink coffee on a daily basis. Katz and the folks at Barstool listened, and so Stella Blue was born.

The coffee will feature three different blends. Positive Vibes is the light roast, Big Cat Blend is the medium roast and Electric Avenue Dark Roast. The coffee is available in 12-ounce whole bean bags, 12-ounce ground bags and pods for Keurig lovers.

A portion of the proceeds from sales of the coffee will go to PAWS Chicago, the largest no-kill humane organization in Dan’s hometown.

Stella Blue is the latest Barstool-backed and created DTC product to hit store shelves. The company has a record of previous success launching other products including flavored vodka, beer and hard seltzers.
