Long established industry analyst Joe Brennan, Jr. questioned the Rovell tweet.

Managing Director at SeventySix Capital Sports Advisory, Evan Davis, attempted to correct Rovell.

"Not necessarily. Revenue includes handle on unsettled futures wagers in PA. See the footnote on the PGCB revenue spreadsheet. '[A] relevant win percentage cannot be calculated by simply dividing the Gross Revenue by the Handle reported during a like period'."

Another individual tweeted: "Draftkings had double the handle, wonder what kind of marketing costs that would require Barstool to catch up in the one state they are in? Thats a lot of free sandwich promos"

And another: "Must mean that their competition is spending more on re-investing in their customers."

And this: "So can we assume the people betting with barstool aren't sharp bettors? Great business idea to go after the terrible casual gamblers."
