    Well to be aware of Simmons you'd have to put up with his '80s references and random inside jokes with his Hollywood friends.

    I think that act got old years ago.

    I feel sad for your inability to just enjoy an entertaining movie without you being critical over it's components.

    As much as I love Bill to say he's still the all encompassing sports guy is a bit much. He has no ability to judge a sport that isn't basketball these days. His work on the other sports in his columns seem amateur compared to his peers. Also he probably has a gambling addiction, take care of yourself bill.

    I'm confused. What did he say that was bad?
    ESPN wasn't reporting that Goodell was a liar, that's up to opinion. He trashed Goodell, I think he kind of trashed the owners too. Then he said this

    And that's probably what really hurt his cause. Especially considering he's been suspended in the past (from social media) for trashing ESPN about First Take.

    I should say, I'm not familiar with his podcast, I don't know what kind of things he usually says.

    was ESPN not reporting that the police had sent the tape to Goodell? I'm pretty sure that ESPN was reporting that. They were reporting something that was the exact opposite of what Goodell said. They didn't say "Breaking: Goodell is a Liar", but they were reporting stories that would prove Goodell was a liar. Seems silly to suspend someone for reading between the lines.

    Again, Olbermann is employed by ESPN and also said this stuff. The Bill thing is probably down to his history + the challenge
