Do Not, Under Any Circumstances Ever, Let Bryson DeChambeau Run Your Pizza Shop
"You have a pizza shop that's been in existence for 50 years and all the customers go to it, it's a great product. All of a sudden a new pizza shop opens up, and they start paying the customers to come eat at their place. And that pizza's potentially a little bit better of a pizza. And then all of a sudden that original pizza house says if you go over there we're banning you from ever coming back to our pizza shop. What's wrong with that economic model?"
I'll tell you what's wrong with that economic model, Bryson. Nobody is paying for the pizza at the new joint. It's like when Dennis and Mac try to figure out the self-sustaining economy in Always Sunny.
Now I'm not even a guy who just automatically hates LIV. I'm also not a guy who just automatically loves LIV either. Anybody who immediately hates or loves the product when there have only been 3 events so far doesn't actually give a shit about golf, they just care about winning an argument on the internet. I think there are plenty of things to like about LIV, I think there are plenty of things that could use some tweaking with LIV, and I think the best way to handle it would be to just sit back and see how it all plays out.
WITH ALL THAT BEING SAID....
What in the fuck is Bryson talking about here? I mean for a guy who is such a self-proclaimed genius, for a guy who spends so much time trying to scientifically analyze every aspect of the game, these were the ramblings of an incoherent nincompoop. I don't doubt that there's a way to complete the analogy here, but this seems like something that Bryson heard one time when he wasn't fully listening. Like he caught bits and pieces of the analogy but he was too busy thinking about what he was going to say next to really take it all in. So now he's trying to piece together the puzzle on TV and he's missing some major corner pieces.
Either that or Bryson just has no idea how to run a business. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to go to a pizza shop that pays you to eat their pizza. The only issue is you'd only be able to go there a few times before the money runs out and they have to close up shop. Or maybe he meant exactly what he said...
