    Re: Simmons Latest on Spygate

    Do I detect a little tension in the ESPN Page 2 bullpen?

    Re: Simmons Latest on Spygate

    For those understandably fed up with ESPN, you missed this little tidbit in Simmons ramblings:

    " Is anyone else excited the Pats drafted a wide receiver named "Slater" from UCLA?" Yeah Baby, I am! :rocker:

    Re: Simmons Latest on Spygate

    I'm pretty sure he directly sheitting on Gregg Easterbrook. Look at Easterbrook's February 2nd column and then the one he put out this week.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=easterbrook/080202&sportCat=nfl

    You can just read the entire the following entire article to see why Simmons responded to give it up (but here is a snippet):

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=easterbrook/080517&sportCat=nfl

    It is obvious Simmons is talking about Easterbrook.

    Re: Simmons Latest on Spygate

    Simmons has mentioned before that his editors haven't allowed any criticism of other ESPN staff in his column.

    Either he was able to slip this one past his editors, or his editors share the same opinion about Easterbrook.

    Re: Simmons Latest on Spygate

    Well, Simmons is vague enough that you can't say he definitely wrote that about Easterbrook or any other ESPN writer. It isn't very hard to read between the lines though. It could be enough to allow the editors to ignore the comment.

    If ESPN had porn, it would actually be worth a damn. However, they are lower than a porn site now.

    Re: Simmons Latest on Spygate

    I agree, perhaps it was a compromise with his editor. If Simmons was calling out the Herald and Tomase, Simmons' editor would have no problem with mentioning them specifically. He's vague enough that some may take it that he's talking about the media in general, but in my opinion he's most likely talking about Easterbrook and espn. I doubt he could be more specific and also get it past the editor.

    Re: Simmons Latest on Spygate

    Simmons is WAY to good for the likes of ESPN..........

    It is amazing that they are so into themselves at ESPN that they would censor what he wants to write. Paranoid folks there without a doubt.

    Great job Bill Simmons.....cannot wait until you move on to a network that will allow you to use your talents.

    I heard an rumor-- an unconfirmed rumor, mind-- that ESPN writers plagiarize their content from sites like PatsFans.com without attribution. They've been doing it for years.

    I say, we should get some Senators and former journalists to comment exhaustively on the rumor.
