    Cris Collinsworth Put Bill Simmons In His Place On Twitter

    Bill Simmons just recently had his show, Any Given Wednesday, cancelled by HBO for poor ratings, so he’s hurting right now.  But that didn’t stop him from throwing a shot at Chris Collinsworth, who was calling the Seattle Seahawks-New England Patriots game on Sunday night. Collinsworth is not known for taking shots at anybody, but he took this […]

    Churro Lover Charles Barkley Got Fat Just to Spite the Houston Rockets

    Charles Barkley was never really that fit. You don’t get a nickname like “the Round Mound of Rebound” if you’re rocking a six pack. However, in his interview with Bill Simmons for the premier episode of Any Given Wednesday, Barkley insisted that he was actually in pretty good shape for most of his career, and […]

    Charles Barkley Says LeBron Won’t Crack the All-Time Top 5 (Video)

    Bill Simmons’ new HBO show, Any Given Wednesday, premiered last night.  And to make a big debut, Simmons brought on the always-opinionated Charles Barkley, who stated that LeBron James just isn’t great enough to be in the top 5 NBA players of all-time.

    Bill Simmons Goes On Twitter Rant In Support Of The Patriots

    Bill Simmons is free of ESPN and free to speak his mind as he damn well pleases.  Simmons, an avid Patriots fan, clearly has no dog in this fight **Rolls Eyes**.

    Bill Simmons, Matt Damon, and Ben Affleck Pose for Super Bowl Pic

    I don’t think there’s anything more Boston than this Super Bowl pic. You could have a guy named Sully punching a guy named Murph while a dude named Geno is getting them drinks, and it wouldn’t be more Boston than a picture of Bill Simmons, Matt Damon, and Ben Affleck posing in a pic on […]

    Ask and Ye Shall Receive: Bill Simmons Suspended Three Weeks by ESPN

    Well, ESPN upheld their end of the bargain. The Worldwide Leader declared Bill Simmons suspended for three weeks after his harsh critique of Roger Goodell and confrontational statements regarding his employer went viral. It all started with this week’s edition of Simmons’s podcast, “The B.S. Report,” wherein he took Goodell to task for his role […]

    Bill Simmons Rant Dares ESPN to Sanction Him for Goodell Comments (Audio)

    Bill Simmons, a longtime critic of Roger Goodell, has taken to his podcast to send the message home, plain and simple: Roger Goodell is a liar. And if anyone of authority wishes to discipline Simmons for those remarks, Simmons will gladly bring that discussion to the spotlight. Bill Simmons didn’t explicitly say that he was […]

    Bill Simmons Is a Big Baby (Video)

    I like Bill Simmons. He’s a good writer, and Grantland is pretty great. That being said, he can be a bit of a baby sometimes, and last night was one of those times. During ESPN’s post-game wrap-up of Game 4 of the NBA Finals, it took a pretty long time for moderator Sage Steele to […]
