Sportscaster TrueGeordie sat down with controversial YouTube star Logan Paul to discuss his career, his controversial past, and his upcoming boxing match with KSI.

While TrueGeordie is best known for his work in online sportscasting, he has likewise established an internet presence for his involvement with the KSI vs Logan Paul beef.

In a “grown-man chat,” Geordie had an open discussion with Logan Paul, where Logan revealed remorse for his actions and compassion for Geordie’s reaction to his previous actions.

“You’re a strong, grown-ass man who was affected by something so near and dear to your heart,” Paul answered. “And for me to have tugged on those heartstrings, it’s, I mean, it kills me.”

The two also addressed KSI’s statements on their boxing match, where KSI expressed that he felt Logan was legitimately frightened of him.

“I’m not sure why,” Logan responded. “I’m 4 inches taller than him, ten pounds heavier, and I’m nine times better of an athlete. I’m going to beat the shit out of him.”

Following Paul’s trip to Japan, wherein he entered an off-limits area of Aokigahara forest and disrespected the body of a suicide victim, TrueGeordie created a response video criticizing his actions.

After this controversy, Logan Paul got into it with another popular YouTuber, KSI. With a career in amateur boxing, KSI challenged ‘anyone’ to take him on after one of his fights, citing Jake and Logan Paul as probable contestants.

The fight was on soon after, and the two are scheduled to throw down on August 25th in what is projected to be one of the largest live-streamed events in history.

TrueGeordie had commentated one of KSI’s previous matches, and was a sure pick for the approaching battle. After a press conference concerning the fight, Logan Paul accused Geordie of bias, citing his previous video as reason enough to believe that the commentary might not be in his favor. Thus, Geordie brought him on to his podcast in order to set the record straight.

Viewers can watch the rest of the interview on TrueGeordie’s YouTube channel, and catch the fight for a total of £7.50 ($10.00) through the KSIvsLogan YouTube channel. Whether or not Logan will emerge victorious over KSI remains to be seen – their beef, however, remains the stuff of internet legend.


Shroud claims Twitch streamers should “unite” to overturn DMCA rules

Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has claimed streamers should have taken a “united front” on the new DMCA rules to try and force Twitch to overturn them, and “could have won” if they did, after thousands of streamers deleted their old VODs to avoid being taken down, some dating back nearly a decade.

Twitch has ramped up its efforts in cracking down on streamers using licensed music. Streamers around the world have been rattled and rocked after receiving DMCA takedown notifications, with a massive wave sweeping across the platform on October 20.

It happened because most streamers play music in their streams, which means it’s also included in their library of video clips and VODs.

It’s a controversial issue that has happened in the past, but the latest ‘DMCA Bloodbath’ has been the biggest one yet. Hundreds of partnered streamers have been forced to take down and delete years worth of content, and it’s sparked a lot of outrage from streamers and viewers alike.

Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek mulled over the issue in his latest stream, and he came to the conclusion that streamers didn’t play their cards right. He believes they should have taken a “united front” on the issue and “hurt themselves” by not doing it sooner.

Shroud Twitch DMCA Unite
Twitch: shroud
Shroud believes Twitch streamers needed to be on a “united front” to tackle the DMCA crackdown.

The first point shroud made was that, even if streamers obtained a license to skirt around the DMCA issues and play music on their stream, it wouldn’t solve the issue. 

“If I was to get a license to play music on my stream, Twitch would not know,” he said. “Therefore, their Twitch music… algorithm that mutes VODs would still mute my VOD even though… I legally can do it.”

“So even getting a license right now doesn’t matter,” he added. “Because… you’re still going to get cucked.”

Shroud went on to describe the whole situation as “strange” because playing in silence for a moment.  Then, he had another flurry of thoughts, which brought him to his final point that streamers should have been more united.

“If we as streamers took a united front and we didn’t just make rational f**king decisions and just start deleting sh*t, we actually could have won,” he said. “But now we hurt ourselves, so that sucks, but it is what it is. We folded. We’re a bunch of bi*ches.”

Shroud is referring to the fact that practically every streamer has been outraged by the decision. However, they ultimately succumbed to Twitch’s demands and deleted their VODS to avoid potential issues.

Many people will believe his frustration is warranted. But at the same time, nobody can really blame other streamers for adhering to Twitch’s demands. After all, their livelihood depends on it.

The key takeaway, however, is that streamers could take shroud’s opinion on board in the future. If anything, partnered streamers are all pillars in the community. It couldn’t hurt for them to unite on matters when they really have to.

At the end of the day, workers in the ‘real world’ have associations, bodies, and unions to support them. So why should it be any different for streamers?
