    Barley might own the channel, but the popularity it's garnered isn't his alone. When SnB was just beginning, I seem to recall there wasn't much other content on NewfZ other than a few bizarre Resident Evil shorts (currently MIA except for one). Essentially everything it has now (subscribers, views, partnership, followers on other social media sites) is due to SnB and SnB alone. Since the series on hiatus, it would seem apropos for them to do their own things on their own channels since that's what they said they wanted do. That's what Spike did, at least, but Barley continues on through NewfZ, a channel that built itself upon SnB.

    If you want me to go ahead and say it straight out, then I will: I think Barley is taking advantage of the success brought about by Spike and Barley, and yes, there is money involved. Sorry to say, but the reality is that very, very few of us would be watching these Barley Plays today had it not been for Spike. At the end of the day, Barley can do whatever the hell he wants to do with the SnB channel, but it's hard not to say that he's riding on the success of a different venture he created with someone else.

    My heart goes out to Spike, because I think he really deserves a lot more recognition than he's getting under these circumstances.

    I don't know what you were watching, but I started following Spike and Barley for, you know. Spike and Barley. I like both of them, and that's why I subscribed to Newfz and Spikesathome. I'll support them both on whatever en devours they take up, whether it's together or on their own.

    An added touch of creepyness could have been something along the lines of the game auto-deleteing it's self after the game finishes a cycle of play. Kinda like a self terminating document meant only for one readthrough. It could work.

    Guys just think of Spike and Barley as your divorced parents.

    You may not like the fact that they're separated, but it means you get twice as many gifts.

    It also means that Shadow is the "New mom" that you just kinda have to get used to. And Barley is a mormon now.

    I thought they just needed a bit of a break to deal with real life shit like jobs, girlfriends, and freetime. I do hope they get back into making videos though.

    Why is everyone assuming they aren't friends anymore or some shit like that? Why wouldn't they be? If that's true it really pains me to see friendships break because I had that happen to me with one of my best friends and it fucked me up for a while. I wish I had a friend to fuck around in games and make videos with, I would cherish a friendship like that. Most of my friends now are just my in-school friends and only truly hang out with their real buddies.

    The thing is, the channel has and always will be Barley's.
    During the beggining of our time as SNBP, I was having some
    very serious issues with my girlfriend and things got out of hand.
    I wasn't happy at all and so ofcourse I wasnt in the mood for
    "business" and I found my escape playing other things for FUN
    rather than forcing a smile in snbp for a while. Barley resented
    me for this and thought i was blowing him off. I didn't want to be
    fake in the videos and ofc our fans would hate it just as much.
    This was one of the first things that put stress on our friendship.

    Thanks to Cocyx we recieved a lot of publicity for the AOM series
    and had established our base as "Partners". After this Barley
    released a video (the duke nukem one with renny) and I felt almost
    betrayed. I said that I wasn't going to be his friend if he started
    making videos with other people like he does with me because I
    thought he would just abandon our partnership alltogether. Yet
    another thing putting stress on our friendship.

    On another note I've mentioned plenty of times and even insisted
    that I should be allowed to edit and upload my own share of videos
    so that I could contribute more but he told me that he enjoyed
    editing the videos and didn't trust anyone with his account anyways
    That may not seem like a problem to you, but when you hear
    from outside sources saying barley said that all I do "is make
    grunts" and bring "nothing to the table" It really leaves me feeling
    betrayed.

    For those of you holding out for another SNBP, don't.
    All of the things that have happened recently between me and
    him have really taken its toll on our friendship and I wouldn't
    expect to see another SNBP any time soon, or ever rather,
    I felt it was time to say it, since it really is a bummer to see so
    many of you wanting to see SNBP only to be dissapointed, and
    post about that only to have it deleted right away.

    Just to CLARIFY, there will most likely be NO MORE SnBP.

    Barley might own the channel, but the popularity it's garnered isn't his alone. When SnB was just beginning, I seem to recall there wasn't much

    other content on NewfZ other than a few bizarre Resident Evil shorts (currently MIA except for one). Essentially everything it has now (subscribers, views,

    partnership, followers on other social media sites) is due to SnB and SnB alone. Since the series on hiatus, it would seem apropos for them to do their own things on their

    own channels since that's what they said they wanted do. That's what Spike did, at least, but Barley continues on through NewfZ, a channel that built itself upon SnB.

    If you want me to go ahead and say it straight out, then I will: I think Barley is taking advantage of the success brought about by Spike and Barley, and yes, there is

    money involved. Sorry to say, but the reality is that very, very few of us would be watching these Barley Plays today had it not been for Spike. At the end of the

    day, Barley can do whatever the hell he wants to do with the SnB channel, but it's hard not to say that he's riding on the success of a different venture he created with

    someone else.

    My heart goes out to Spike, because I think he really deserves a lot more recognition than he's getting under these circumstances.
    Thanks for the support. It doesn't take effort to follow.
    Takes quite a bit more to see things as they really are
    If it really wasn't about the money, do you think
    all of the SnBP videos would still be on his channel, available
    24/7 to collect ad revenue? Sure "newfz" Started out with 700 subs
    but it was with BOTH of our efforts and that of our fans
    (thanks for networking) that we got as big as we did.
    I offered back when we had a little over 1000 subs
    to make a channel strictly FOR SnBP to avoid a situation
    and it was shot down to keep it entirely under HIS control.

    It wasn't SnBP that was partnered in the end. It was him.
    That's fine. We all face problems, we all bounce back.
    We all get what we deserve. I'll continue to push through this
    and earn my subs on my own merrits. I'm going to be me.
    I'm going to do what I enjoy on my own time and I'm going to
    EARN this.


    On an end note:

    I'm thankful to have had the oppertunity to do SNBP with Barley and earn so many loyal fans that like us for who we are,
    and I'm also thankful for the ways that Barley has helped me by getting me in contact with TGS amongst other things.

    I'm gonna win no friends with this but Barley's being a bit of a douche, Spike needs to just go with whatever and not care about the channel, and everything else is just annoying drama. Forget the videos, everything around it is just painful to watch.

    Wow Spike I didn't know You had a girlfriend and was having a tough time and all,You always seem so happy and ready to crack a few jokes and make others laugh. If there may not be anymore SnB it's understandable and no one is the blame for this as I hate to admit nothing lasts forever I wish both of you luck with whatever you seek in the future.

    Well, seeing as this whole page has been used to attack me and nobody bothered trying to look at it from my side. I gotta say, thanks everybody. Kind of a shitty feeling to see all those months of me spending money, going over my bandwidth to continuously upload SnBP's for everybody and yet nobody even appreciated it.

    There was a lot going on behind the scenes, but I guess I'd be painted as the bad guy cause I owned the channel. Neither me OR Spike are the bad guy here. I'm still sending Spike all the money I owe him, we're still splitting the cheques at the moment. I've been helping Spike get in contact with TGS so that he, too, can get partnership. There is no me cutting him out and reaping all the subscribers. Infact, let's face it. I have 14,000 subs that just complain about the lack of Spike, and Spike has nearly 5000 subs of people that actually enjoy his vids. Which would you rather? Doesn't matter how much effort I put into a video, it gets dislikes right off the bat because it's just me. Neither of us are walking away feeling dandy about this, but what do people expect? That we'd keep doing it forever at their expense?

    Marphy Black, you couldn't be anymore wrong. Sorry man, but you're wrong. I don't care if you feel so self entitled that you can tell me what I do and don't own. If I'm truly reaping the fanbase we built, then I'm definitely not enjoying it. If people don't enjoy my videos, just unsubscribe. There is no turning it into all this stupid drama bullshit I'm seeing here. Infact, it looks as though there was no surefire way of me quitting SnBP without looking like the bad guy.

    I have a lot of history with that channel, that's why I'm not leaving it. A lot of history before SnBP that I don't need to go into. Infact, actually. I tried to make a new one and TGS said that they think that I should stick to mine. There is no me taking the channel and running it dry. Anyways, I guess Spike said it. No more SnBP, so please. Just unsub from me. Just because somebody subscribes to me, doesn't mean they can dictate what I can and can't do.

    I wanted to be more nice about this, but after seeing the thread literally just turn on me, I don't know how else I can defend myself.
