      A contract is a contract. If they were really being treated unfairly by the company or they have legitimate reason to want to leave the contract then sure. But Cmon, david offered 500k each and was prepared to take off 6 months of the contract and also give Call me Daddy Back. Clearly is the creators fault in this case or so i think anyway

    Alex was the one who really wanted to stay with barstool. She was super content with the agreement they first came up with. Sophia was the one basically self sabotaging the deal between her and barstool in hopes to leave.

    Sofia can’t say she’s in a 50/50 partnership when she is not doing her 50% of the work. Alex is recording, marketing and editing these shows while Sofia is just talking. She doesn’t deserve a 50% partnership.

    From the few videos i've watched, those two girls are the most annoying people i've ever seen or listened to. How they have any following at all is beyond me. Barstool should just move on without either of them and count themselves lucky.

    You can be your own CEO, but you will have to start without the subsidy. Call Her Daddy would likely have found footing on their own, but it’s unlikely they would have had this level of success without a big brand backing them. The NY Times piece - not surprisingly - acts as though these companies provide little to the creator. And there is always a “middle man.” ISpulse, Spotify, Apple, etc can still make or break these brands.

    I usually support the talent but in this case the deal wasn't bad. Considering it was basically from nothing to everything in less than 3 years, it was a great deal. I'd stick out the 3 years & then move on to do my own thing while maintaining good business relationships with these companies.

    Guys, they were offered $500k BASE salary. Increased merch and alcohol sales. They would have made well over a million dollars/year if they stayed with Barstool. Sofia would just need to talk on the mic for three hours, once a week, and be a millionaire. Alex would be the one putting more work, editing the show.

    I understand Phillip and his side as a creator, and all his bad corporate relationships, like with Maker Studios. However, talent is only relevant if there’s an audience. The CHD girls hardly did any work before signing with Barstool. Had they been on their own, there would have been no meteoric rise to the top. Look at the countless amount of podcasts already out there with no audience. Barstool gave them not only connections, sponsorships, merch and marketing team, but an AUDIENCE. The BS brand immediately comes with exposure. Alex was the only real talent as she can edit digital media. Sofia is just another girl with a loose tongue, there are millions lying in wait to fill her role. Not many can have an ear and timing for being a viral editor. Sofia is greedy and has no talent to back it up. I’m glad she’s canceled.

    The talent is not more important than the company under the conditions of a contract, especially an initial contract. Barstool gave them a platform to become who they are and as successful as they are. They assumed all the risks. More often than not, people's podcasts fail. Yes, they can outgrow the company and move on to bigger deals for themselves. But, they have to honor their contract first. Sounds like Barstool offered them an outstanding deal. It is the same as any skilled person. I'm an engineer by profession and I work on projects that make my company 10s of millions and I see six figures of that. If my talent level gets to a point where I feel I no longer need the company, I can move on and consult on my own and keep a bigger percentage of the money. This is how it works for everyone in a capitalistic country. I don't feel sorry for the girls at all.

    Everyone's a bit shit here, tbh. The company's making money off their hard work, while seemingly providing not much - why shouldn't the girls get a fair cut? That said, don't sign a 3 year contract with no out if you're not going to honour it.

    TBH Alex does way more work, interactions, and talks more than Sofia by a long run. People watch more for Alex than Sofia. Sofia should be glad she got 50/50. She totally fucked herself, any of us would die for that opportunity esp being an unknown. Watch her become irrelevant so fast. Just you wait. She will regret this more than Lori Laughlin regrets not taking that plea deal. Edit: most of their fans are from barstool sports, without them they will NOT have anywhere NEAR the same amount of views on any of other platform. It would take year(s) to regain that audience on another platform, if the audience even bites. ESP bc one of them will be replaced. They are so stupid.

    Alex contributed more through editing, and just filming more in general. You never even see Sofia hold the camera. Plus if they were to make desperate content, Alex is more entertaining and more people would watch her. The difference in pay makes sense.

    Don't care for either party but if you're literally nothing and you sign a deal to get big then the media company did their job and you should live out that contract. Then when it's fulfilled take your established audience and make that real cash. Unless of course ballstool was breaching. Seems like an easy win.

    Not gonna lie, the president of Barstool also sounds like a bit of a scumbag. And it’s clear that the creators of call her daddy weren’t happy in their current position and that’s completely ok! They’re the creators, and they can ultimately decide what they want to do with their podcast. That said, I feel that they should have just bit the bullet and taken the deal. They would’ve gotten the IP back, and a good sum of money both through guaranteed salary and extra cuts from merch sales.

    I have to side with the company on this one. They only had 18 months left on their contract! Then it was reduced by a third to 12 months AND they would be given their IP. If I were in that position, even if I was unhappy with those terms, I would just put out a good show for a year then hold all the power over my brand after that.

    I used to listen to their podcasts and they ended up encouraging dangerous and damaging behaviour e.g. looking at boyfriend's phone, encouraging unsafe behaviour and basically shaming people that aren't "10s". The deal was incredibly fair and I feel like they got greedy. I would've sided with them if they gave better advice like Meaghan Rienks' Don't Blame Me. Also didn't Jenna Marbles actually start at Barstool Sports?

    Too many “influencers” think what they do is hard work and act accordingly. They thought they were worth more than a million dollars and that big companies would be falling over themselves, fighting to the death to sign them. You can ask any two random female influencers to do a podcast about their sex lives and get an equally successful show. Standing there being pretty and taking free stuff and posting pics of said free stuff in your Instagram story is not and will never be “hard work.”

    I think from the start, they just didn’t do their research. Then Alex quickly realized it and truly understood the value of the IP. Obviously, I don’t think Sophia truly realizes what the IP means... she’s blinded, likely because Peter would be getting more money pulling her out of CHD. No one who is educated on the value the IP holds, would make this decision. It’s MIND BLOWING. I’m glad Alex decided to make her own decisions because to lose this IP would have been detrimental to all parties. Sucks a friendship ended tho, and sucks they were greedy enough to let it get to this point at all.

    They shouldn't have signed a contract if they didn't want to be tied down. Of course there are situations where the contracts are predatory. I don't believe this is one of those. Sophie, was that her name, sounds like a real bitch imo
